America is doing about all that could be expected of her to furnish amusement for Europeans. Chairman Brice says that the democratic national committee is going to make every effort to carry the new states next October, and that it has strong hopes of carrying Montana and Washington. There can bo no doubt that the republicans feel very un easy about the result in Montana, and they have cause for feeling so. Almost every conceivable decoction for poisoning oneself has been tried by would be smicides, but it was le;t for a New York ■woman to think of anew one. Tho other day she soaked a box of matches in water, and drank the water, but as sulphur is said to be insoluble in water, she did nothing more than to frighten herself and her family. Col. Dudley hasn’t had a degree con ferred upon him by a college, but lie is en titled to be called Dr. Dudley. He doctored the vote in Indiana last fall, and Mr. Quay and the President want him to doctor that in Montana next October. Judge Woods is another man whom the colleges neglected, but he seems to know all about doctoring the bribery laws, and he should by all means be an LL. D. Mrs. Belva Ann Lockwood Is traveling in France, and she generally manages to get herself mentioned by the French news papers as “a candidate for President of the United States.” No doubt she derives a good deal of satisfaction from this, and as it is about her oi.ly source of satisfaction arising from her two campaigns, the press of this country might refrain from making facetious remarks concerning her. It must be somewhat embarrassing and depressing for a person to go through with the part of “Koko,” iu “Tho .Mikado,” while his wife sits in the audience and a detective is trying to prevent her from rushing upon the stage, and inviting the funny “Koko” to a pugilistic contest then and there. Yet that is what Alfred C. Wheelan, of Buffalo, did the other night. He had applied for a divorce, and his wife was disp sed to op pose the motion by boxing his ears. Col. N. J. Parkinson has gone to Wash ington to tell the President how the admin istration might make votes for tlie republi cans in the new states. Somebody should remind the colonel that Gan. Harrison was not elected to make votes for the Republi can party. He was elected to look after the interests of tbe people. It will pirolia blv leak out before the colonel leaves Wash, ington that one of his ways for making re publican votes in the ne w states is his own appointment to office. Abowea-br a Railroad. Some of the northern newspapers doubt less will critici-e the governor of Missis sippi severely for his failure to prevent the Sullivan-Kilrain prize fight from taking place in that state. The New York Tri bune. several days before the fight occured, said that the fight could not take place in any northern state because public senti ment in those states was so hostile to such brutal exhibitions that the authorities were compelled to do their duty and pre sent them, and that, therefore, riullivan, Kilrain and their backers were forced to select fighting ground in the south. Asa matter of fact, public sentiment in the south is as much against prize fighting as it is in the north. The Morning News pointed out a few days ago that prize light ers and the class of men who associate with them and encourage them are, as a rule, northern men. With the possible exception of New Orleans, there was a g eat deal more interest in the Sullivan-Kilrain tight in the north than there was in the south. The scenes that were witnessed in northern cities, when the result of the fight became known, were not paralleled in southern cities. There were several reasons why the battle ground was selected in the south rather than in the north, but no one of them was that there was less hostility to ; rizo fighting in the south than in the north. What was desired was an available battle ground in the vicinity of a largo city, and that was found near New’ Orleans. Nowhere close to that city except up the river, is the country thickly settled, and it was comparatively easy, thoreiore, to find a place where the fight could take place before the police or military could interfere' The governor of Mississippi exerted him self to the utmost to prevent the fight from taking place in that state. He had a mili tary company under arms on the day of the fight, and he had issued a special warning to the sheriffs of each county. He had done more than that. He had offered 3 1,000 reward for the arrest of Sullivan and Kil rain if they broke the p'ace of Mississippi. He would have succeeded in preventing the fight if the Queen and Crescent Railroad Company, which conveyed the principals aDd their motley crowd to the battleground, had not helped the law-breakers to violate the law. It is a question whether the railroad com pany has not placed itself in a position to be severely dealt with by Mississippi. It has received certain privileges from that state, and is bound to exercise them in a way that will not nullify the laws for the protection of society It aided and abetted the law breakers and made itself accessory to their crime. If tbo officers of the law do not prosecute it the chances are that the legislature will limit its privileges. It will probably discover that the few dollars it received from the prize fighting crowd were obtained at too dear a price. If there be no way in which a railroad company can be punished in Mississippi and othew states for encouraging prize fighting, a way should be provided as quickly as possible. Why Dudley is Ignored. It seems to be about impossible to get at the real reason of the President’s refusal to have aay communication with Col. Dudley, who was the treasurer of the republican campaign committee. They had been close friends for many years, aud during the lust national campaign they wore in almost daily communication with each other. As soon as Gen. Harrison was elected, how ever, he gave Col. Dudley the cold shoulder. It was said that the “blocksof five” lotier was the cause of the trouble between them —the President declaring that he would have nothing to do with a man capable of writing such a letter. This explanation was, of course, very creditable to the President, and created the impression that he intended that his administration should 4t least be an honest one. Another explanation is now given. It is that Col. Dudley formed a kitchen cabinet for the purpose of controlling the app >int meuts of all officials who could be made useful in money-making schemes in con nection with government contracts. Offi cials who have the giving out of contracts are to be found ehietly in the postoffice and interior departments. It is alleged that Col. Dudley and his kitchen cabinet had arranged for the control of the star route contracts, and secured assurances that they would be favored in the pension bureau. When the President heard about Col. Dudley’s kitchen cabinet scheme he resolved to have no more to do with that wily individual, and to thwart his scheme. He has certainly ignored Col. Dudley, but it is by no means certain that be has thwarted his scheme. Col. Dudley appears to have an immense amount of influence in the departments. He may not get all he asks for, but he gets a great deal, and unless the President keep* a very sharp lookout, he and his friends w ill get a pretty big share of the surplus, which, by the way, the administration seems determined to distribute. Cases in which men and women have eloped with oach other are very numerous, but one woman very rarely elopes with an other. An instance of this kind is reported from a Colorado town, however. Miss Clara Dietrich, aged 24 years, and Miss Ora Chatfield, aged 15 years, became greatly attached to each other, and they were con tinually writing each other love letters; and as Miss Dietrich was the postmistress, she probably allowed the lotters to be passed unstamped. Their curious cotidu t attracted public attention, and they were separa’ed. They meet again, however, and to prevent another separatio l they eloped to Denver. It is thought that the older woman is not of sound mind, and a medical examination would probably establish the fact that the younger one was open to sus picion in the same direction. The fourth annual session of the Georgia State Horticultural Society will be held at Griffin July 31 and Aug. 1 and 2, 1889, and at the same time an exhibition of fruits, plants and vegetables will be made. A cir cular issued by the president of the society, Mr. P. J. Berckmans of Augusta, says that “all horticulturists, fruit growers and pro gressive agriculturists, and especially the ladias of Georgia,” are invited to attend, aud to send such articles for exhibition as will make the display creditable to skill and careful cultivation in horticulture. During tbs session soveral interesting ad dresses will be delivered. Mr. T. L. Kinsey of Sivannah is the secretary of the society. This item is going the rounds of the north ern newspapei-s: “Take the railroads of the north and south, mile for mile, and wo have accidents to their one, aud some of the railroad publications are woudering why this is so.” When the railroad publi cations settle this question, they should give wide publicity to their decision. THE MORNING NEWS: WEDNESDAY, JULY 10, 1889. The High School Tuition Fee. The question of making tuition free in the high schools of this county was dis cussed at the meeting of ibe board of edu cation on Monday nig it. A fee of $1 per month for each pupil is now charged, aud the amount received from this source is about f.5,000 per annum. When the high school was mads a part of the public school system, that system was not as popular in this city as it is at pre-ent. In fact, the opposition to free schools 'as strong. The taxpayersci ntonded that th y ought not to be taxed for educational pur poses. There was also a doubt whether a tax for the suppi rtof schools in which any thing more ti.au the branches of a common school education were taught was legal. Even the city authorities. who were clothed with autnority to make appropriations for school purposes when it was first proposed to in clude the high school fn the public school system, ar.u afterward the grand jury, when the duty of providing for the support of the schools devolved upon that body, were reluctant to make the high school a free school. These and other reasons were deemed sufficient to justify tne present tuition fee. It is thought by some that the time has come when it would he advisable to abolish the tuition fee. There are instances where boys and girls have had to leave the hign school becau e their parents could not af ford to pay this fee, and a good many have not entered the school at all, being barred out by it. It is the purpose of the board of educa tion to use its utmost efforts to make the high school a free sell iol —pmtting it in that respect on a footing with schools of a lower grade. The board, doubtless, will have the support of public sentiment. It certainly ought to have. Whether or not the board is successful, however, depends upon the grand jury. A Spunky Actress. A young actress in New York wants $lO, 000 from a firm of cigarette manufacturers for circulati g immodest pictures of her self in packages of cigarettes. Exactly whom the young woman is does not seem clear, but her st ige name is Gracis Wade. No doubt she is trying to keep her real name from the public, because of the un pleasant notoriety into which the case would bring her. Although mys tery may attach to the plaintiff, however, the suit is a very prac tical affair. A picture of the young lady was obtained from a photographer, it is supposed, und from it were reproduced many smaller ones, the heads of which were attached to p ctures of a figure in tights, and these composite pictures were circulated r s an advertisement. When the young lady’s attention was called to them, she raturally became very indignant, and nt once instituted a suit. The penal code of New York says that a malicious publica tion by writing, printing, picture, effl y, sign or otherwise than by speech, which exposes any person to hatred, contempt, ridicule or obloquy, or which causes or tends to cause any person to be shunned or avoided, or which has a tendency to in jure any person in his or her business cr occupation is a libel. There aro many instances in which im modest pictures of women have been ob tained and circulated in this way. Boms of them Were obtained and circulated with the consent of the original-, but probably in most cases they were not. Only a few months ago it came to the knowledge of n gifted literary woman of the north, against whoso reputation there was not a breath of suspicion, that she had been subjected to an indignity of this kind. This practice oa the part of people who wish to advertise their wares is a most rep rehensible one. If manufacturers and oth ers aro so intent upon gain as to be indiffer ent to the damage they may do to the cha - actors of women in this way, aud to the evil influence such pictures may exert upon young boys into whose hands they fall, the courts should bring them to a realization of the magnitude of their offense. Mr. George O. Jones, "ho issued a call the other day for a national greenback con vention, seems to be an impartial sort of person. He slashes away at ex-President Cleveland and President Harrison with equal relish and vigor. Concerning Mr. Cleveland he cays: “The interests and welfare of Americans never seemed to enter his mind. He put himself above his party and repe.led honest advisers. He alone came to think himself a great man,” and concerning President Harrison he says: “Few sensible men believed on March 4. ISS9, that anyone could ever make Cleve land’s administration respectabl >, but unless President Harrison soon quits devoting ali his lime to office seekers, and looks after the interests of the people, he will accom plish that result.” Doubtless, in Mr. Jones’ opinion, a greenback President would do tis whole duty by the country, but the chances for the election of a greenback President are not promising. Mr. Jones will have to put up with either a democrat or a republican as long as he lives. Secretary Tracy may boa good lawyer, but he seems to have made a mistake in or dering.t at four additional stars for the four new states be placed on the United States flag on July 4, 1889. The law upon this subject is as folions: “On the admis sion of anew state into the union, one star shall be added to the union of the flag, and such addition shall take place oa the four.h day of July then next succeeding the ad mission.” A marine officer, speaking of thismatter, says that it is all right for pri vate parties to have flags containing forty two stars, but that the government must have the legal flag or none. Until July 4, 1890, the legal flag will contain thirty-eight stars. Mr. J. G. McPhaul is showing what can be done with a vinevard in Worth county, Georgia. His “Moselle Vineyard,” at Poulan, covers about twelve acres, planted in select varieties of grapes, aud he expects to get from it this year fifty tons of grapes. This land some years ago could have been bought for $1 an acre. Mr. McPhaul says that his part of the state has been regarded; as being of but comparatively little value for agricultural aud horticultural pur poses, and he determine 1 to show what it could do. He certainly has succeeded in showing that its lands can be cultivated with profit. The Shah of Persia is looking after the interests of his country while he is making his European tour. Just now ho is helping along a movement for the establishment of a bank in his country, in which Baron Route, and some Euelish capitalists will in vest millions. Among other things, the bank will undertake to develop mineral fields aud build railroads in Persia. CURRENT COMMENT. Will Have Things His Own Way. from the Neic York Times ilnd.) George p. Junes is to meet In convention at Cincinnati on Sept. 4 next usder tbe corpor ate title of the Nats.nal Greenback party. He has issued an invitation to whom it may con ’• neet with him. but we imagine that unanimity of his proceedings will not be seri ously disturbed by those whom be has ad dressed. A Contrast. from the Hartford Times.

Mr Harrison has rsappoisred as governor of Wyoming territory Francis E Warren, who was displaced from flat position by President Cleveland for stealing public land and inclosing it as a cattle ranch. Judge W. \V. Peck, a re publican memoer of the supreme court of Wy oming. is making it very unpleasant for Harri son and Warren by bringing charges of perjury and land thefts against the latter, and support ing them by documentary evidence taken from official records.

His Fatal Blemish. From the Chicago Tribune. He had taken a vacant seat in the car by the side of a lovely young girl w'tfh w'hom be had some acquaintance already, and whom lie was ardently desirous of impressing favorably. Un d r the spell of his brilliant conversational powers and the giance of his dark hazel eye the tell-tale blush had risen to her cheek and bore mute yet eloquent testimony to tlie progress the presumptuous youth was making in her good graces.

Waiting Thirty Years for Her Lover. From the Chicago Tribune. A roman ic story is connect)! with the life of a wotna i whofr*qu nts the railroad station in Manchester, N. H. She is about 51 years rid, but now bent witn care and ner long handsome tr sses streaked witn gray; she aleavs carries a traveling bag in her ha id, and as the crowds arrive she scans each p rsOn eagerly, and then turns sudly away. The woman some thirty years ago was one of the belles of the city, courted by many. The favored lover, however, foil iweU the sea. One day he left for a voyage. Their troth had bee . plighted, and on his return be was to lead her to tne altar, but the sailor lover never returned, ami no message came to explain his absence. TANARUS, e grief and disappointment c used the woman a long illness. When she recovered etie insisted that her lover was true, and even if he was otherwise she would remain c instant. For this reason sue goes to the railro id s ation to greet him home, and ai r.ost every day for t e last thirty years, winter and summer, -pring and autumn, in fair weather and foul, she has been there on this errand. She is re iring in her disposition, and never frequeuts the waiting rooms or mingles with the crowd upou the platform. She Dared to Be Original. From the Baltimore Sun. Now comes a girl who is plump enough to be we 1 rounded without a sugg-stion of corpu lence slender enough to be graceful withal, unconscious of self enough to be modest with mt prud ry. merry enough to be charming without affectation, and with a touch of orig inality about her costume that makes her still more interesting. It is not in the headdress, a blue and white handkerchief tastefully ar ranged, from under which a heavy plait of golden hair falls below the w aist , and ends in a curly tangle; nor in the suit, wb cb is like many others, a blue jersey cloth with a scroll pattern n white braid on collar and wristbands, belt and skirt, but she has remembered how pretty A white hand looks in a darn mitt, and ap ly ing the knowledge in another direction has out aw-ay part of the foot of the stock .ng, exposing the daintiest, whitest toes, with pink tiutings as beautitul as a baby’s. Not one in twenty could have done it: for an unsightly corn or other b etr.ish would have been fatal to the effect, but there is nothing of the kind here. As Per escort joins her he casts a sly glance downward and begins to laugh. Her eyes do not once fall to her feet; it is not necessary, for she ins made an exhaustive study thereof in private. Col iring slightly she laughs up at him and says: “You sai l I either knew now nor would dare to be original. What now?’ His answer is not audible, hut they pas * on smiling. In anotner minute they brace themselves to meet a breaker, and mademoiselle of the toes disappears to make her bow to the little fishes and her sister sea nymphs. Her Glass Eye Didn’t Work. From the New Orleans Picayune. Avery curious cause lately came before the justice of the peace of Nenilly, France. Some time ago Mme. Pluyette, a widow of 50, but who still attaches much importance to personal appearance, had the misfortune in playing with a lap-dog to receive from it so severe a wound in one ->f her eyes that it came out of the sock et. Having heard much of artificial eyes aud being recommended to apnly t > an expert manufacturer iu this way named Tamsier, she gave an order for a glass eye. for which the op tician charged 100 francs is2o). Refusing to pay this charge, the manufacturer summoned her before the justice of the peace. Mine. Pluyette having appeared, holding the glas; eye in her hand, tne judge asked her why she refused to pay the bill which JJ. Tamsier had sent in. "For a very good reason.” replied the defend ant. ”1 can see no more with this eye than I could before.” "What?” said the judge. “Did you really im i-'" that you would be able to see with a glass eye?” Bid I think so?” retorted the angry dame "Certainly I did. Will you be so good as to tell me what eyes are for except to sea with* I ordered the eye for use, and until M. Tamsier makes me one with wuich I can see I will not pay him a sou.” The justice of the peace endeavored to con vince Mme. Pluyette that glass eyes were for others to look at an i not for the wearer to look • brought but. finding ail apoeali to her reason of no avail, he condemned her to pay the plain tiff the amount of his demand. Wb*n tbe de fendant heard tbe decision she became furious witn auger, and, after dashing her glass eye on the floor, she rushed out of court amid tbe laughter of tne Crowd- Human Nature on tbe Highway. From the New Fork Sun il Avas on a highway running into a city in Pennsylvania. One man was driving out with a load of brick, and the other driving in with a load of Lay. Both attempted to get the best side of a mud bole, and as a consequence tlieir teams came head to hya;l and st ipped. “You, there:" shouted the brick man. “You there yourself'” replied the other. "Going to turn out?” •‘No.” “Neither will I.” "Pli stay uere a whole year first!” ‘‘And I’ll stay ten of them!” Both proeeedel to make themselves as com fortable as possible, and to appear careless and in Afferent as to results. Other travelers took the other side of the hole, and passed them by, so it became a question of endurance. At tho end of an hour the hay man said: “If there’s any one man I hate above another it’s a human hog.” ‘ Then it's a wonder you haven t hated your self to death:” was the retort, and silence re gned supreme again. Another hour passed, and the brick man observed: “Pm going to sleep, and I hope you won’t disturb me.” J “Just wbat I was going to ask of you,” replied the hay man. Both"pretended to sleep, butattheend of the third hour the hay man suddenly called out: “Say: You are a cussed mean man 1" “The same to you!” “Where you going with those brick?” “Four miles out, to John Dayton’s. Where you going with your hay?” “To Stiner’s brick vard.” “Say. man, I’m John Dayton myself, and I've traded this hay for brick:” . "Well. I'm young Stiner, and I was driving the first load out:” “What, fools we are! Here, take all the road. ” “No—no—let me turn out.” “I'll turn.” “No—let me.” And in their haste to do the polite thine the load of hay was upaet aad a wheel taken off the brick wagon.

Presently, as though to prove what they said, his petroleum blew up and burned his face in a serious way. He has suffered from that injury ever since. As an example of the spirit which animates tb ; German army, and which doubles its force. Prince Kraft Hobenlohe te Is a fine story.

They say that n the parks and squares there are statues of English oen and Scotch men. and other Europeans, besides American), but that the gr at It,than, to whom we owe our cou itry, has been neglected. Ttte Columbus monument is likely to he a majes'ic pile and an honor to Central park. Both Italian and Amer ica i sculptors have been invited to offer designs tor it. A correspondent calls the New York Tribune's attention to “a state of things which concerns everybody.” He says: “The Saratoga springs are to-day way be'.o-v the mark. The cause is that everybo ly has been boring down into the natural reservoir: at every opening . a is escaping; so that below, it has do longer power to force the waters through rocky fissures, sucking mineral particles, and, thus laden, force them to the surface. No artificial boring should be ahowel within at leas. half a mil -of a natural mineral spr.ng of national reputation. If the springs go, Saratoga goes. “ A peculiar accident occurred the other af ternoon to a St. Paul youth named Eph Welis. Wells and another lad proceeded to a lake near the city early in the morning on a fishingexcur sion, and ang'ed during the entire forenoon without getting a bite. Wells was fishing without a rod, and had the business end of h s line adorned with a large frog, the other end being wrapped round his finger. Suddenly a large fish seized tbe bait and made such a de termined ru h therewith as to cause the strain on the line to cut the young fisherman’s finger almost to the bone. Surgical aid was obtained, and it was at first thought that the member would have to be amputated. Operation ha - been deferred, however, and it is now hoped that the finger may be saved without resorting' to amputation.

A call for monet to build anew hospital in Jerusalem, issued by the London Society for Promoting Christianity Among the Jews, has roused vehement protest from the Jews. The influence of the hospital, they say, is resorted to for trie purposes of conversion, and as a mat ter of fact the hospital is not needed. The pro verbial care of the Hebrews for their own peop e has not been lacking toward those crowding into Jerusalem. There are already two hospitals, and £9.00 1 has just been collected in Europe for enlarging them or for building another.

Princess Louise Scphi* of Schleswig-Hol stein's marriage to Prince Frederic Leopold, son of the Red Prinole,Frederic Charles of Prus sia. presented several interesting features. First, the bride was one of the most perfect types of Teutonic beauty known in the aorth of Europe, it was Leopold's father, also who was the commanding couqueror of Schleswig- Holstein in 1667. Then in the Fackeltauz or torch dance, an indispensable conclusion to weddings at the Prussian court.

"This is repeated by the emperor ad the bride, and by the bride groom with tie empress, alter whicu the min isters nand their torches to as many pages, who lead toe way again, followei this time by the bride between two partners, the bridegroom similarly giviug his hand to two ladies.” This ceremony is repeated until the wedded pair have made the circuit of the room with all the princeiy guess, when the ball is over and the bride and bridegroom march to their apart ments, still escorted by the empieror and em press, the highest guests, and the torches. At the door the torches are extinguished. The last incident of the pageant is when the bride's •Mistress of the Robes comes to unfasten and divide her garter.
