Some cf the boys < f South Orange, M. J., have organized an anti-cigarette s clety. This is a very g'xxi idea, provided they don’t take along cigarettes to smoke during the meetings. It has not been noticed that the names of any Georgians appeared among those of the Oklahoma boomers. Georgians seem to be satitfied with Georgia, and in that they show tbeir sound sense. The engaged couples who don’t think it is lucky to marry in May, and who don’t want to wait u itil June, should seize the oppor tunity to-day. They could celebrate Wash ington’s inauguration in that way. Lately a good many novelists have told the public, through tho newspapers, how they wrote their novels. It i* an excellent thing they have. People intending to be come novelists can adopt some other method. No doubt, as was stated in our dis patches, that, Saa Francisco's prize fighter died from heart failure; and the heart fail ure nas brought on by prize fighting. His antagonist probably went in to fight "to a finish.” The republican newspapers whose editors were given government positions were not bribed to speak well of this administration, but at the same time it has been noticed that since the appointments referred to they have not been able to fi.id the slightest flaw in it. The esteeme l New York Tribune is giving Gov. HiU advi e concerning his futuie political course. Tue probability is that Gov. HiU could give the Tribune points in politics. In any event, ha is not likely to accept advice that cotues from the enemy. Mr. Jefferson Davis has written a letter calling attention to the fa t that some of the most co, sj icnotis descendant-, of the Washington family ere omitted from the list of invited guests to the Washington centennial. Mr. Davis probably knows what he is talking about. Mrs. Ham-on's father, who held a posi tion in the pension bu eau thr ughout Mr. Cleveland's .dmini.tration. has consented to resign, and to fake up his reside me at the white bouse. Ho is making more money performing mar. tage ceremonies these days tbau he could make as a govern meat offi cial. At least one tepublicau newspaper comes out boldly iu defeme of Col. Dudley. The Philadelphia .Yetcsssys: "Col. W. W. D diey has had bard political luck lately. Had e. not deserve it” There are probably a good many other republican newspapers who think that it is not a crime to do what Dud ley did, but they are afraid to say so. The Chicago Tribune call* the colored “statesman” of Washington "Fred Doug lass." Has the Ti ibunt forgotten that Doug lass said some weeks ago that gentleiue i called him Frederick Dou’lbsa, but that others ciilloi him what they pleased! Per haps, however, he did not inle id to include republican orgaus among the “otners.” Guthrie, Oklahoma's remarkable city, is in a peck of trouble. Baud storms, bail water, pneumonia, small-pox, unscrupulous deputy marshals, and a bread a id water famine reduced the ei at while buoyant se - tiers to a state of unt apjiiness, and now, on the (up of that, corns, the news that the mayor Is a republican. All of the settlers who can do so should return home at oucs. Cabinet officers Slighted. The centennia' celebration starts off badly s > f.-r as th s cabinet officers a o con cerned. T.ie governor of New Jersey failed to provide breakfast for them a Elizabeth. It seems he thought they would not have lime to eat breakfast at his tab e, and he left them to the tender mercies of the rai road officials. He was so overjoyed at having the Preside it of tne Unite 1 S at?s as his guest tbat he came very near overl Hiking the chief justice. H >wcv r, he sent a 1 aid baclt to the train for that official, and it is to be uresumed tbat the chief justice had his hunger satisfied with tradit oual Jersey buckwheat cakes and sau age. Pernaps the cabinet officers do not fee! that they were slighted. Tbev cannot help seeing, however, that i:t the estimati m of the ruler of tne province of Amboy they are not of as much lmco.tancc as th y are in that of those who are in'Washing ton hunting for offi 93. Of course Po.-tmaster General Wana maker was greatly di-a pointed. It had been widely announced that he would breakfast with the goveruorof New Jersey, and Philadelphia fully appreciated the h nor that was in store for o e of her c.tizeDs. D mbtles* the qti.e: Qll ker city feeis tee disappointment as keenly as Mr. Wanamaker. The other day. when the centennial com mittee told the governor of New Jersey that if he could not as ure the committee tbst the breakfast would be over by 9 o’clock a. m. it would order the presidential train through Elizabeth without stopping, he was inclined to resent t e imperative way in which Mr. Fish’s comtui tee addressed him, but since ne permitted the cabinet to break fast on cracuers and ciiee>e while within ius j.irisdicdo 1, it is to be presumed that he would Dot have felt very muca hurt if the pre idential Ira n bad not stopped at Eliza beth. The President and the chief jis ice may have a glowing story to tell of New Jersey’s hospitality, but tie cabinet will nave nothing to say about it. Some Curious Suicides. There have been a good many suicides this year and some curious ones. One oc curred at the Savannah hospital not very long ago that was the occasion of a good deal of comment. The victim was a ma 1 of more than ordinary intelligence, and the letters tbat he left showed that he had con templated taking his life for a good while, and that he had speculated a great deal about what would be his experience in the unseen world. Another rather curious sui cuide occurred in this city on Su .day morn ing. The vic.im had been a companion of the one who committed suicide at the hospital. He had tried to take his life sev eral limes without success, and he wr te out carefully nis experience ia one instance in which he nearly succeeded in destroying himself with puson. The other day the dispatches contained the accou t of the suicide of a mania New York who, before drowning, a rayed him self in evening dress and carefully adorned nimself with a buttonhole bouquet. He was clearly opposed to being a corpse from which people would turn away wi.h hor ror. These are only samples of the curious suicides. There are many of them, aid the number ;eems to be increasing rapidly. Every few days one occurs that is so differ ent from any tnat p'ecedii it that it a treats attention. Indeed, there are so many curious suicides that the suspicion is suggested that the victims had a strong de sire to be talked about after they had sev ered their connection wit 1 the world. A New York paper, commenting on the large number of suicides this year, calls at teuiion to the fact that since Jan. 1, ac counts of more than 700 which have occur ed n the United States have appeared in the 1 ewspapers. If t ey cm inue to oc cur at the same rate throughout the year the number will be over 2,000. The wbole number redorded fo last year was 1,500. There is no doubt that in this country the rate at which suicides are increasing is greater tha 1 the rate at which population is increasing, and the increase is largely among the better classes. This would seem to indicate that loss of fortune and failure to secure weal.h and the advantag! s it is supposed to posses I,o re steadily increas ing causes of self-de .traction. And the haste to be rich sends many who are not recorded as victims of suicide to the grave. A startling statement comes from Eng land, and it is that an American girl may be the Q icon of England some day. Queen Victo: ia has just returned from a visit to the Prince and P. incess of Wales, and it is stated that one object of her visit was 1 1 discuss the marriage pro poct< of her grand son, Prince Albert Victor, who may reach the throne. He is 25 years old, and has not thought much of marriage. It is said that the queen and his parents do not want him to marry any one of Germ sn blood, and as his wife must be a Protestant, his choice among the Europea 1 daughters of royalty is somewhat restricted. Sir E hvard Su livan suggests tbat he shall marry an Am rican girl, and the sugg stion does uot appear to be a 1 objectionable one, as the Prince < f Wales was always par.ial to American women. American girls will take notice of this, and they should make it a point not to accept for a husba and any foreigner who has nA prospects of succeed ing to a throne. Oir dispatches this morning contain a very full count of the opening ceremonies of the centennial ce’ebration. The Presi dent and the chief officers of the govern ment reached New York after a very pleas ant journey. The uro ;ramm3, so far as the Pr s.dent was concerne I, was carried out fu ly and satisfactorily. The naval parade was an imposing one, and was wit nessed by n immense number of people. New York appears to be pretty we 1 crowded now, but to-day, probably it will have a greater number of visitors within its limits than at any previous time in its history. The chief cere mon m will occur to-day. It is expected that fully BJ,OOO citizen soldiers will be in line. The trades display, which will form a part of the procession, will be ve y fine. If the weather Is goo Ith jcelebritiu 1 will be one of which New York will have reason to be proud. Cardinal Gibbons will leave Baltimore this morning on a visit to several southern cities. He will travel in the private car of President M yers, of the B itimore and Ohio railroad, until he rear ;es Ci cinnati, and he will then g i over the Lonlsvil e and Nashville rod in President Norton’s private car. He will spend a week in New Orleans, and while there wiil confer tha pallium upon A'c iblsnop Janssens. From New O leans he will proceed to Atlanta, and toer.ee to Hot Springs, N. C. lie is ex pected to return to Baltimore May 17, THE MORNING NEWS: TUESDAY. A TRIE .10, 1880. A Bloody Shirt Orator convert and. Politicians of the bloody shirt typ i in Washington were rather startled the other day bv the appears nee there of Col. Niw come Clark, who is a resi ent of Ocean Springs, Mass., but who, a few years ago, vas a popular ad wealthy politician of Michigan. When Cnl. ClarkliveJ in Mich igan he was i.oted for his aggressive repub licanism. He was a stump orator, aid was in great request in n tion and campaign* be cause of his bitter attacks upon the south. The burden of his speeches was t e refu al of the south to grant the colored man his rights. On account of his wealth and ability Col. Ciark has become a leading citizen of Ocean Spring*. His.errand in W shingcon was to have the postmaster at that place re moved. The only thing urgssi by Col. Clark against him wan that bo was a black man. Col. Clark admitted that the p st master attended to iris duties and that he performed them satUfact >rily, but he de clared that the fact that the town bad a black postmaster hurt it in he eves of those who might visit it f nr the purp ise of making investments, or for health and pleasu e. He gave other reasons why a white post master was desirable. First Assistant Postmaster General Clark fon, hieing well acquainted with Col. Clark, was rather surprised by his request, and was i dined to recall to the mind of the latter the speeches he used t > deliver when a resident of Michigan. It seems, however, that Col. Clark is not such an en thusiastic admirer of the colored f Iks as he was when he was far away from them. His views with respect to then have undergone a change, and while be wants to see them deal; with fairly and justly, be does not pull off his coat to assist in thrusting them into posi tions for which they are not fitted, and iu which they do not give general satisfac tion. He was given to understand at the post office department that his request would b* complied with. This would seem t> indi cate that the number of colored men who will get postmastorsbips in the south under this administration will not be large. The Samoan Conference The reports from Berlin indicate that th Samoan question will tie settled withou much difficulty. The Arne icau c mrais sioners met w ith a cordial reception. Even Commissioner Bates, whoso article iu the Century Magazine on the Samoan difficulty was quite seriously criticised by the (ier rran press, has had no occasion to think that the opinions he expressed in thatartido will lu the least impair bis usefulni'si. It seems t iat Bismarck hasdecile 1 not to assert that Germany has a right to inter fere in any way with the government of Samoa, but will accept the American id a that tie Samoans should be permitted to manage their own affairs. He will insist, however, that the German residents in Samoa shall have the losses which they have suffered at the hands of the Samoan made good. It may take some time to de termine t;e amount of thesn losses. I fact, it may not be possible to deiermine them without sending a commission to Samoa. The Berlin commission, however, will settle the question whether or not they are to be paid. There was a disnosi ion to hold this coun try responsible fer the alleged acts of Mr. Klein, who, it has been charged, led the Samoans in the fight of Dec. 18. and i which a dozen or more German soldiers were killed, but the impression now is that Klein's doings will cut no figure in the com mission’s work. Although he is an Ameri can citizen he was in Samoa on his own ac count, and his wrongful acts, if he com mitt and any, cannot be charged against tbis government. The American commissioners have seen nothing as yet w hich leads them to believe that the conference will be a protrac ed one, or that Bismarck will insist upon any thing which this country caun it grant. In fact, all the commissioners seem to ttlink that the conference will be a short one, and that the matters with which they have to deal will be quickly adjusted. A curious story comes from Ohio. Dur ing the last presidential campaign a demo cratic co igres man of that state, Mr. Foran, was suspected of being ready to go over to the republicans, but he did not. Now he says that Mr. Hoisley, the chairman of the Y* uug Meu’s Dem icratic Club Of Cleveland, offered Hi in, on the part of the republicans, S"S,(K>O if he would take the stump for Harrison. He refused, and Heisley went to work to have the offer increased to $40,000. Mr. Heisley denies the charge, but the ex-congressniau de clares that he has telegrams and letters f om Heisley showing that the charges are true, and that he will publish the evidence. The cranks, fools and lunatics are not all dead, notwithstanding so many of them have perished in f olbardy undertakings. C. T. Rogers, of Mansfield, Mass., wants to cross the Atlantic ii a dory. Ho would li e to race across with Capt. Andrews, of Bos ton, or to s art u; on a solitary jour ey, June 17. Capt. Andrews will hardly ace p the challenge. He attempted to cross in a dory some months ago, and he was glad enough to be : icked up in mid ; cean bv a steamer, aud brought back. His experience probably knocked soimof his cranuy no tions out of his head, and that is what Rogers’ experience wiil do, if he attempts t u s trip and gets back a ive. Senator S erman is said to have soured upon the administration, Senator Quay is naid to have left Washington iu a rage be cause of the President’s treatment ot him, Cos!. Dudley is undoubtedly on such terms wilh the Pie*ident as are quite unsatisfac tory o himself, and au army of spoilsmen is bet inning to say very uncomplimentary things conceri ii g the mau who occupi s the white bouse Where is this going to en and. and who is going to get hurt before in dvesei d? At any rate, it won’t be the democrats. The New Y rk Slav demands that Post ma-ter tie oal Wunamakor s mil resign. It is not probable that Mr. Wu amak r will do so, however. The nearest a p each to it that he ill make will probably tie to b - com e . esig .ed to theat a'xs that a u been, and w ill continue to he made upon hltn. The attacks may or may not he justifia ble, but a republican politician can become resigned to anything except being deprived of an office Gov. Hovey, of Indi i.n, called upon the Presi ie t the other day, and it is said that ho put in a good tunny words ior Col. Dud ley. Cnn this be true.’ It was stated some tone ago that the governor reiustd io eon tribul- to the republican national campaign fund, and it, will be remembered that in his nios age to the legislature he came out flat footed against election bribery. Has he changed his views! CURRENT COMMENT. What It Amounts to. Frort Ihe Louisville. Courie>-Journal (Dem.)

Long Winded “Briefs.'* From the Baltimore Herald (Ren.) The supreme court of Georgia has s“ i an ex am de worthy of imitation. It has refused to c insider an appeal in a .aae where a brief of 275 closely printed pages was pr s nteJ for its examina ioo One ot tne jud es who made a partial examination of the d'>cumeot came to the conclusion that life was too sho t and the pressure of public busi <ess too great to be spent in reading such a brief.

There is ft in one of the rooms at the postoifice department which rea Is, “Positively no admittance.*' Congressmen are barred out from it along with other mortals. It is the room in which applications are kept. Some times a congressman would iike to get into that room and take a peep at the papers of candi dates other than his own. Ame nber who was particularly . nxous on that point went to one of the officials a day or two ago and explained the situation. “It won't do," said the official severely, “it won't dj at all. Tuat would be setting a bad precedent; v u must keep your eyes shut when aro ;nd rh t end of th s de artment.” “Sol shall." ret orte i the congressman, and h * coolly walked down to th • forbidden quar ters. opeued the door and slipped in. “Didn't you see that si<'i on the door?" said one of tue clerks who has no fear of anything smaller than a cabinet officer. “No," replied the congr ssman. “Mr. tol i me I must keep mv eyes shut around here, an 1 I didn't see anything. I want to hear who th 6 candidates are in ray district whom I haven't recomme and and. “On," said the clerk, smiling, “if Mr. didn't tell you to keep your ears shut. too. its all righ:." He then pulled d>w and a bund e of napers and rattled otf the information which th • congressman wanted. Other mem ers have h-ard o. the scheme, and now a steady scream pours into tLe room the placard on the- do >r of which says “Positively no admittance:'' but they all shut their eyes when their hands touch the knob.
