It is stated that Mr. Cleveland is going to spend the summer at Tarry town, which, of course, ought to be a very good place in which to tarry. Thus far two republicans have declined offices to which they were appointed by President Harrison. The chief matter of surprise is that any have declined. There are several things which the man should carry who is going to enter the Okla homa country next Monday, but that which he is likely to need most is a gun. Senator Sherman is preparing to go to Europe. Probably he wants to get well rested before starting out to punish the President for ignoring his recommenda tions. Ex-Senator Chandler and ex-Representa tive Uallinger ure still carrying on their fight for the New Hampshire senatorship, although the newspapers are not paying much attention to them. If the candidate! themselves are to be believed, Mr. Chandler will be re-elected triumphantly, and Dr. Gallinger will win easily. Grand Army men seem to be sharing with republican editors the greater number of appointments by President Harrison. Grand Army men are very numerous, and all of them have votes. Editors sometimes con trol large numbers of voters. Is tins ad ministration being run for the purpose of re-electing Benjamin Harrison I Mr. John G. Whittier, the American poet, believes in female suffrage. He says: “Suffrage is woman’s right as truly as mine, and when she asks for it, it is something less than manhood to withhold it.” The venerable poet must have a very poor opinion of the men of the country, gener ally, since they have withheld this alleged right from women. It was announced the other day that the President had made a declaration which in dicated that he had not f rgotten the civil service plank of the republican platform. It will take a good deal more lhan declara tion to remove the impression created by his appointment of Mr. Van Cott as post master of New York, that he doesn’t in tend to let civil service reform stand in the way of machine politics. Republican editors have been given some of the choicest plums under this administra tion. President Harrison probably under stands that there is no better way of enlist ing the support of a republican newspaper, in case he should want to tie re-noininated in 1892, than by giving its editor an office. He should look up something or other for Editor and ox-Postmaster General Prank Hatton, who is supposed not to be a very ardent Harrison mail. Some republican newspapers say that democratic rule in Indiana has nearly bank rupted the treasury of that state, but they forget to mention that republican rule in Ohio seems to have done the same thing tor that state, and that the southern statos did not begin to prosper after the war until demociatic governments were established in them. A few republican organs have the hardihood to try to shoulder upon the democrats the unhappy condition of alfa.rs which exists in Ohio, but they are not meeting w ith much success. Chief Justice Fuller smokes an excellent but not very high priced grade of cigars. Justice Harlau, it is said, is not at all par ticular concerning the kind he buys, and he has been known to smoke cheroots that cost til 60 a hundrc 1, althuugu bis fuvorite cigar isoae that costs $5 a hundred. Justice Gray, on the other haud, smokes the high priced article, for which be pays $25 a trj'.dr and. He will be married soon, and, probably, his wife will suggest to him the advi abilitv of smoking cheaper cignrs, iu •rdrr that she may have more pin money. Springer’s View of the Solid Bouth. Congressman Springer, of Illinois, thinks ; that the solid south is hurtful rather than helpful to the Democratic party, because it tends to make the north solid, and a solid north means the continued success of the Republican party. There is a great deal of truth in what Mr. Springer says, and there is reason for thin king that the Republican party is not so anxious to see the solidity of the south destroyed as it pretends to be. It would like to get a fe w congressman from the south in order to insure a good republican majority m congress, but if it could make two or three of the southern states republi can it is doubtful if it wou Id do so. As long as the south is solid it will use the solid south argument to make the north soli 1, and it understands that there is no other argument so effective in accomplishing that ob jec t. Mr. Springer says that during the last presidential campaign in Illinois the re publican stump speakers constantly referred to the Mills tariff bill as a southern measure, framed by two southern meu for the purpose of injuring northern industries. Statements of this sort, hiiiug as they did the merits of the tariff question, were far more effective than legi imata arguments in favor of the tariff in making voters for the republican party. The voters, as a rule, knew little about the real issues in volved in the tariff discussion, and the re publican speakers did not trouble them selves to debate the issues. Tney improved their opportunities to crea’e a prejudice against the democratic party by declaring that the whole purpose of the representa tives of the solid south was to injure the in dustrial interests of the north. There is no doubt, however, that th3 south will remain solid, whatever may be the effect of the solid south upon the north, as long as the color liue question continues to be the leading one in the south. The white people are bound to act together to protect themselves fr >m being plundered and their cities, counties and states from being financially ruined. When the carpet baggors were in power and the majority of the offices were filled with ignorant, and not infrequently dishonest men, vast public debts were incurred and taxes were in creased almost to the point of confiscation. Mr. Springer talks about the south di viding on the question of protection. He seems to entertain the mistaken idea that there is a strong protection sentiment in the south. If he should visit the south he would find protectionists in considerable numbers only in the towns where there are a great many manufacturing industries, and where a fair per centago of the popula tion is from the north. There is no use, therefore, in wasting time in trying to break up the solid south as long a3 the col ored line question is a vital one, and nine tenths of the people favor a low tariff. Mr. Springer is beginning to make a reputation as a statesman, but it will not reach very great proportions if lie does not show better acquaintance with tne condi tion of affairs in the south than he has yet done. He and other democratic stump speakers ought to be able t > ref ut ■ the slan ders of the republican stump speaker! and strengthen their party in the north. Centennial Celebration Mistakes. There have been a great many mistakes made in connection with the contenuial cel ebration, but they have beeu corrected promptly whenever they could be. The different committees seem disposed to do what is right, and hence no ill-feeling of a lasting character is likely to be caused. The Pennsylvania National Guard threat ened to create the biggest Kind of a row a day or two ago, but everything is serene now. The Pennsylvania soldiers, as well as those of some of the other states, got the idea that they were not only to be fed and lodged while in New York, but that their traveling expanses were to be paid. They number about 10,010, and the cost of trans porting them to and from New York would have been about $50,000. The military committee had no idea of assuming such a burden. In fact, itcouldn’t assume it with out it raised the prices greatly of seats from which the parade is to be vie.vel, aud that it did not want to do; and, besides, if it paid all the expenses of the Pennsylvania sildiers, it would have to treat thj soldiers from other states the same way. The Pennsylvania soldiers insisted, however, and the committee, rather than have trouble, agreed to assume the extra burden. But the railroads offered to transport the Penn sylvania tro >ps free of charge, and then the committee was so happy that it was ready to do most anything anybody asked. The public knows very little of the an noyances to which the different committees aie subjected. Wbeu they get through with their present job they will never want 1 1 under,ake another like it. During tue progress of the .Stewart will case, the other day, the fact was brought out that Mrs. Stewart, after her husband’s death, was frequently in need of small sums of money, which she oould not get. A wit ness testified that at one time, when he called upon her, he found her iu great dis tress. She said she hadn’t a cent, and she wanted S3O with which to pay a bill. Being asked why she did not make out a check for that amount, she sue did not know what a check was, and had never signed one. J udge Hilton was out of the city at the time, and she waited until he returned before getting the S3O. A Cninamau fraudently obtained about S7OO from his brother Chinaman in New Haven lately. He canvassed the city for a card wbicn he said was a passport issued by the Chinese minister at Washington, and which, if sent to China, would admit tha holder to this country. Tne uniuspaotiug laundry men bought the tickets right along, paying $1 apiece for them, and they after ward found that they had been duped, a id that the card was only an advertising one. They were indignant,but as tha s wind er ha l left for parts unknown, they had tj submit to the loss. Mr. Jesse Enlows Peyton, of Haddenfleld, N. Y., feels greatly aggrieved because he has uot been iu vited to take part iu the cen tennial celebration. Mr. Peyton declares that he was the first to suggest the celebra tion, and be thinks that he should marcn at the head of the procession. As he is left out of the programme, he can seek consola tion from Mr. McAllister, who did a good deal ot hard work in preparing for the ball and banquet, but who las bem notified that bis services are no longer needed. Mr. Eldridge T. Garry ha< rilled Mr. Ward McAllister a liar, and Mr. McAllister has called Mr. Btuyvesant Fish a lia", all growing out of the prospecdvo centennial celebration. If the celebration is as suc cessful in every other way as it has been in stirring up bad feeling in New York, It will boa great event. THE MORNING NEWS: FRIDAY, APRIL 19, 1889. Mexican Territory Not Wanted. The sensational story, published in our dispatches a day or two ag j, that a filibus tering expedition, composed of Americans and commanded by Charles Edmund Rob inson, an ex-Texas ranger, who has a big reputation as an Indian fighter, was pre paring to eater Lo ver California and wrest that territory from Mexico, does not appear to have much foundation. In San Francisco the impression seems to prevail that there will be figuring in Lower Califor nia between the filibusters and the Mexicans before many days, and tha an effort will be made by the filibusters to draw this country into whatever trouble may oc cur. According to the newspaper reports the purpose of Commander Robinson and his followers is to seize Lower California, organize a territorial government and ap ply to congress for admission into the union. It is said that the filibusters are members of the American Annexation League, which has its headquarters in New York city, and which, according to rumor, has been trying to stir up trouble in several directions. The head of the league in New York is a lawyer named Gibbons. He ap pears to be a harmless sort of a person and when a reporter called on him one day this week for information about the alleged at tempt to be made to deprive Mexico of Lower California, he readily answered all questions put to him. He admitted that there was such an organization as the American Annexation League, but declared that it had no intention to make war upon Mexico. He said that there were rich mines in Lower California of which the English were trying to get control. The members of the league, he said, who had gone to Lower California, aud those who propose to go there, sought only to control these mines for the benefit of Americans, and to estab lish a colony. The league must be a very disinterested organization. Its desire to control rich mines for Americans is certainly commend able. It would bo some satisfaction to know why it is so solicitious for Americans. The chances are that the American Annexa tion League is composed of a number of cranks whose chief aim is to acquire a little notoriety. No doubt tliore are a good many Americans in Lower California. Thousands of them went there when tue excitement over the alleged new mines was at its hight. Some of them may b; con templating projects of an unlawful char acter. If they are they will soon be made aware of the fact that Mexico is well able to take care of what belongs to her, and that this country is not looking in the di rection of Mexico for new territory. The Progress of Ballot Reform. People who have not given particular attention to the ballot reform movement in this country do not understand what an impetus it has received in the last year or two. This impetus was the more marked after the recent presidential election, be cause on that occasion the abuse of the bal lot was so flagrant as to direct general at tention to the ue.*d for reform. Borne form of the Australian voting sys tem has been adopted in half a dozen states—lndiana, Massachusetts, Montana, Rhode Island, Tennessee and Wisconsin, and there are fair prospects that New Jer sey and Missouri will also adopt some re form method. It is especially gratifying that Indiana has adopted a ballot reform measure. The outc y against election frauds in that state was so great that neither the legislature nor the governor could afford to ignore it. The New York and Pennsylvania legisla tures are considering this question, but it is not thought that either state will take any decisive action in the yet awhile. In the New York legislature there are two election reform bills—the Saxton, which was passe! previously in a somewhat different form, and which was vetoed by the governor, and one which is supposed to have lieen outlined by Uov. Hill The op ponents of the Saxton bill say that it might tend to check election abuses in the cities, but that it would increase them at the rural districts. The opponents of Gov. Hill’s bill say that it would not check the abuses anywhere. The republican legislature is not likely to pass the Hill bill, aud if it should pass the Saxton, the governor in all probability would veto it again. Mr. Quay’s model Pennsylvania legislature seems inclined to smother the bill which is before it. Any bill fashioned after the Australian election law would be an experiment in this country, but one worth making; and if it should prove to be a successful one, other states would speedily fall into line. A republican organ gleefully states that the democrats of Baltim re are greatly wrought up because, according to a csasus of that city, just taken, there is an increase of 325 colored voters over last year, while the increase of democratic voters is only 6. Considering, however, that the total num ber of colored voters is only 15,00 I, and that the total number of white voters is 80,000, there seems to be no particular reason why the democrats should be excited. Probably the republican organ was a little excited itself. A few weeks ago James W. Helm, a grain merchant of Danville, IU., disap peared mysteriously, and the fact created a good deal of excitement in that town. Mr. Helm's whereabouts were made known by himself the other day. His wife receivad a letter from him, dated at Silver Springs, Fla., stating that be had just recovered from a dazed condition in that place, and that he did not know how he got there. He an nounced bis intention of retu. ning to Dan ville as soou as be was able to travel. The editor of the New York Evening Post, Mr, E. U Godkin, has written an article for the May Forum on "The Re publican Party and the Negro,” in which be points out the impracticability of any special "southern policy” on the part of the President. He spates that the southern people are doing more to elevate the negro and to make the corruption and intimida tion of voters impossible than the northern people. Of course he is right. Mr. Cleveland assigned as his reasun for declining the appointment of a High Bridge park commissionership that be was uot sutticiently familiar with the Higu Bridge neighborhood to make a very accptable commissioner. His letter to Judge Patter son was a very polite one, and did not indi cate that he considered the office beneath the dignity of a private citizen who had been President. Common sense is one of Mr. Cleveland’s chief characteristics. Mrs. C. Asbbacber, tne Ohio woman who swallov.ed her false teeth, died, after u-.de.- going an ope. alton tor the removal of the tenth, which had lodged in her throat. CURRENT COMMENT. If They Survive.

It is intimated that the people of Montana were only fooling last autumn when they all voted the republican ticket. They did this in order to persuade the republicans to desist from throwing obstacles in the way of their getting into the union. Now that they have got in, they have gone back to their old party affilia tions. The republicans appear to have a clear case of false pretenses against the wicked poli ticians of Montana. Is this the Fiery Mr Blaine? From the Cleveland Plain Dealer (Dem .) After all the harsh criticism passed upon Mr. Bayard’s conduct of the Samoan controversy and the declarations of the republican papers that Mr. Bla.ne would put quite another face on affairs, it turns out that the state department under Blaine has taken up the Samoan policy adopted under Bayard, and is carrying it for ward on the okl lines BRIGHT BITS.

Hiram Williamson one of the 600 who rode into the "Valley of Death" at Bal&kl&va in 1854, has just been made chief porter at the Boston postoffice. He is 70 years of age. Capt. Lavlor Leland, whom Jennie Cham berlain, the American beauty, is to marry, is one of the richest young men in the British army. He is a tall handsome man. probably 82 or 34. and has a country home which is a marvel of comfort and convenience. Senator Spooner of Wisconsin is the smallest in statue of the members of the United States Senate, but one of the brainiest men in that body. When he first went to Washington he was subjected to no end ot ridicule about his size, which touched his sensitive nature not a little. Secretary Nobl* is said to be working harder than any of bis cabinet colleagues. He has had one good rest since he went into office, and that was involuntary. One night last week he went to bed at 7 o'olock in the evening completely exhausted, and did not awaken until noon the next day. He wondered what was the matter with hit interior department, but soon discov ered by his increased vigor that he was all right, and had simp y succumbed to the de mands of outraged nature. Wren Attorney General Miller first arrived In Washington, he looked like a plain country lawyer on an outing. His suit of rusty black bad an unfashionable cut and set. He wore a turndown collar, with a shoestring necktie, and the high top boots which allow the trousers to find refuge when the snow is deep. Strag gling and untrimmed whiskers fringed his hone.t face Now he has changed all this, lu tue Riggs house the other night he wore n elegant full dress suit of fine material, fashi mable cut and perfect fit, and he looked tborouguly at home in it. Jorn I. Blair of Blairstown, N. J., is reputed to he worth 15X000,000, yet such is his strong sense of merely holding his wealth in trust for the benefit of his fellow men that be spends upon himself less almost than is paid lo his humblest workman. When Mr. Blair stops at the hotel, if he intends to stay over night, he usually asks for a small inside room on the par lor Moor. If it is in the winter, and too cold to sit without a fire, he sits in the public lobby. If be intends to leave before midnight he does not take a room at all, but occupies the public rooms down stairs, and if he wisnes to change bis shirt be alipt into the little washroom be hind the offices. "I never offer or refuse," he said, jokiogly. one day to a gentleman who offered him a cigar. A Cincinnati reconteur, whose veracity is not to be q lestioned, tells the following atory: "Shortly after Mr. Arthur came to the presi dency the Woman's Temperance Association aent to the white house a beautiful portrait of Mrs. Hayes, which now adorns the east room. At about the time I wanted to see the President on some personal business, and through the kind assistance of John O. Carlisle secured a private audience. As we were passing with Mr. Arthur from his public office to a more retired room wo noticei a big packing cate leaning against the wall of the corridor, upon the face of which was the express company's braud. ‘Keep dry.' The President stopped In front of it, smiled pleasantly and touched Carlisle on the shoulder. 'Do you know what that is?’ ’No,’ answered the Kentuckian. ‘Note the legend of “Keep dry," said Mr. Arthur; ‘it is Mrs. Hayes' portrait.’” The popular blood purifier, Hood’s Sarsa parilla, Is having a tremendous sale this season.

From the New York Graphic. A man who weighs 200 pounds, who has per fect health, who never can explain a pain, for he never has known one, who is down town about four hours, and during that time con sumes a very good luncheon and several fancy driuks, is never so happv as when a small woman, throughly versed by ex]>erience in aches and pains, who has stood two hours to a dressmaker, who has given the dinner orders anti been careful that special dishes were looked after, comes closer to him and sympathizes with him because he has to work to earn her living.

Hague of this city, a fish warden of the state, has collected evidence considered sufficient to convict about forty residents of Beaver county of violating tue fish laws. They are all neighbors of Sena tor Quay. Thera were six arrests to-day, in cluding Bernard Lazarus, chief of police of Rochester, and Jacob Stahl, who some time ago presented Senator Quay with a large string of line fish, when the following dialogue is re ported as having occurred; "Jake,” said the senator, surveying the flsh with mingled wonder and admiration, “what will I do with all these?” “Eat ’em.” said the imperturbable Jake; “they'll be good for your brain.’’ “But. Jake,” continued the senator, dryly, “how did you happen to get so many tine f 1- lows at this time of year?” “Well, colonel,” replied Jake, with an expres sion which spoke volumes, “if you'll just tell me how you caught so many votes in New York I’ll tell you how I got the fish.” A Corner in Tin Plates. From Time. He threw down his evening paper, bounced off a Hariem horse car and made a bee line for the nearest harlware store. Upon his face were unmistakable marks of anxiety. “Lemme see some tin plates,” be said to the clerk, as soon as he had recovered his breath. “Tin plates? Yessir—here are the only sizes we carry in stock. There ain't much demand for 'em.” "How many yer got on hand?” “I'll see. Want to buy a lot?” The customer nodded and the clerk, going back into the gloom that always pervades a hardware establishment, sent the proprietor forward. “Thirteen dozen on hand,” said the boss after consuming ten minutes in making the invent ory. “Well, how much for the lot?” The dealer named a price. "Is that the same as t ey were last week?” Has there been any raise lately ?” “Not that I know of." A smile of satisfaction overspread the face of the buyer as he handed over the amount. As he left the shop after ordering his pur chase sent to his residence, he muttered, “Now, let them blasted republicans whoop up the tariff on sin plates as high as they blame please. It takes a mighty smart man to keep up with the times, but I've got tin piates enough to outlast me now, tariff or no tariff.” Senator Ingalls' Servant Girl. From the Washington Critic. The other evening Mrs. Senator Ingalls in vited the doctor, with a number of other friends, to dinner at 8 o’olock p. ra. The doctor ac cepted, but said he could not come until a half hour later, and it was agree 1 that a place should be held for him until his arrival. At 8:30 o'clock the doctor rang the bell an 1 anew servant girl answered it. Somehow her suspicions were aroused against the doctor, and, although she invited him into the parlor, she watched him narrowly. He asked to see Wrs. Ingalls. The girl said he could see her in a few minutes. "Take her my card,” he said, urgently, as the fragrance of the viands floated upward to his nostrils. ■ You can see her in a few minutes,” per sisted the girl, as she settled down to the busi ness of not leaving him alone with the movables in the parlor. "But, my girl,” he pleaded, “I am invited here to dinner. Go and see Mrs. Ingalls, and tell her I’m here.” “She ll be up before long, and it will be all right,” and again the girl headed him off. Finally he sat down in sheer desperation, and waited and waited and waited, and the girl watched and watched and watched. Along about 9:30 o’clock some members of the family passed through the hall, and the young man made a rush and got in an explanation ahead of the servant girl. Then he went down to All the vacant chair at the table. Love’s Young Dream. Froni the flew York Weekly. Miss De Kweet—Do foil like pearls? Mr. Nicefellow—l do not care for separate pearls: they are too tame; but I admire them in rows or clusters. Mss De B.—So do I. If there is anything I love, it is a pearl necklace—large pearls, you know Pa gave me one some years ago. but although it is very handsome. I do not care much for it, because the pearls are rather small. Mr. N—Oh! Small pearls should never be put into a necklace. Only the largest size are worthy of such display. For my part, I much prefer diamond necklaces. Miss De S.—Aren’t they lovely! The pure white diamonds especially. Mr. N. —Yes. It's a pity, though, the colored diamonds are out of tashion; but I think they are coming hack. I saw a necklace to-day with every tenia diamond colored.and the eff-ct was wonderfully brilliant. It was at Biffaov's; quite cheap, too. By the way, will you marry me? MissDeS.—Oh! This is so sudden! Yes, my love, I will. Mias De Sweet (half an hour later)—Clara Nubbins, next door, is engaged, too; but 1 think her lover showed shocking taste in the selection of her ring, it is so big and clumsy; and. be sides, it seems sort of brazeu. It is six largo diamonds set with pearls. Mr. Nicefellow—For an engagement ring there is nothing neater than plain gold. Biffany has them for sl. Ineffectual Persuasion. From the Hartford Courant. The observer was going from New York to Hartford a few days ago. In iront of him were seated a very stylish young woman and a man, the woman in a Connemara cloak a small French cap te trimmed w ith buttercups The gentleman was little, fierce, and dark and middle-aged, and he, too, wai in brave apparel. About half an hour after leaving Bridgeport the train slackened its speed. It is remarkable how loudly the voice rings out when the passen ger has been talking against the rattle of the train. Only on this occasion the slacking up was slowly done, so slowly that our gentleman did not realize that with the utmost distinctness the following sentences fell on the ears of all th- passengers within eight or ten seats: “I may express myself awkwardly, but I hope lain understood?” A modest bow from the buttercup capote. “I have an excellent situation lathe shoe and leather business, and my habits are unexcep tionable.” “No re-iponse from the capote. ”1 have a house in Harlem and ray life is in sured for S9,(XX) in the Travelers’.” No re sponse. "both ray children have had all the infantile diseases." No response. "I am an orphan.” Still greater silence. "And a member la good standing in the Bap tist cbu r ch.” No reply. "My first marriage was an uncongenial one.” Silence. “My wife shall never trouble herself with domestic cares; I merry her not to be a house keeper. but a companion." Stillno-s. “My first wife's mother Isa" longer living " As these sentences fell froin his lips the suitor continued to raise his voice, and when the train came to a full stop we hear! a cry: “Adeline, 1 may be precipitate in saying so, but I adore you.” An uncontrollable burst of laughter from the innocent listeners awoke him to the situation, and Adeline the ailont. spoke. It was in a whis per, but we saw that bis alluring promises were without effect. ITBMS OP INTERE3T.

They take the toughest and hardest shelled eggs they ran procure and repair with them to the slope back of the white house. There matches are made between the ia Is, who decide them bv rolling the eggs down the slope. Ttie boy whose hen fruit sur vives the down bill journey without its shell cracking takes the more unlucky egg as his prize, that is, provided it is not wholly wrecked on the trip, as is frequently the case The slope after Easter presents a wonderful apnearanoe. Pieces of eggshells make it look fr.un a dis tance as if a light snow had fallen on it.
