One Ml turns Nwrars lar Thirteen A p. lleauiM-The Uranlie Mtata I'rwvi dent Aanorlatluu Agalu. The granting of full citizenship paper to applicant in the circuit court i done in a very wholesale manner. There are none of the restriction placed on the ap plicant nor any condition imposed aa in the east. A New York judge require an applicant to be able to read and tell what the consti-ution is before he i granted hi papers, while here yesterday thirteen applicant were called pp at once, two witnesses sufficed for the lot, and some of the men had to be told through an interpreter when to come up. where to arand, etc. The witness is que tinned as to the applicant's attitude to ward the constitution of the United States, whether he i well disponed to- wurd it or not, when it would seem as though the candidate himself should be required to answer. A witness should swear to the length of residence, tbe inao' character, etc., but can hardly be capable of reading another man's mental attitude toward the institution of this country. The examination is a very lax one and while no doubt the class admit ted here are a worthy adoition to the country's citizen, it would seem that more care should be taken. The five years' residence i required to enable a man to luarn tbe English language and become aquaiuted with our laws and customn and the intent of the law should receive consideration in the examination of applicant. The Nkwk yesterday interviewed W. E. Dockry, repreentative of the Granite State Provident association, in regard to the item re produced in yeerday'sNKW8 from the Buxton New Bureau, relative to the failure of the association. Tbe New Bureau's item was to the effect that tbe Granite Stute would be closed up and that investor would loose from f 900,- 000 to f 1,000.000 mostly falling on wajfe earner of twenty-two state. Mr. I)Kkry has reen the item, but placed uo credence in it and gave as an expla nation that trouble and jealousies among the managers wn the foundation of the report, but that investor were in no dan ger whatever iu any cae or whichever faction iome out on top. Later in the day Mr. Dockry showed tbe News a tel egram from W. II. Verity, of Grand Hap- id-i. State agent for Michigan, saying. "Boston report mulaciou lie, made out of whole cloth, have written." He expects to be more fully informed when tbe letter arrivis and in the meantime he say he i not at all aisturbed a to the outcome. The r port that William Evan, for merly of the Atlantic mill, now ot Great Fall in charge of the milU of tbe Clark Bigelow mine there would re turn shortly to take charge of the Tam arack mills, seems to be but a rumor. At least the man most interested iu such a change, John Gundrv, the present superintendent of tbe Tamarack and Osceola mills, aay he has heard nothing of it and it em likely that be would a bis position would be affected by such a change. Ou the other hand be might wish to keep tbe fact to himself for a time. The Copper Journal gaye the Nkwm credence and the Dublisber claims he knew whereof he spoke. In connec tion with this change, it I said that tbe assay if the aud ruuning into the lake from the Tamarack mill U not satisfac tory. It i said that Mr. Evans will bring back with him Henry Evacs, for merly copper washer at the Atlantic, who went west with him. There is no doubt that the saloon run by John Steiubach on Texcuco street, Hancock, is a disgrace to tbe town and would be to the worst managed muncl pnlitylnthe county' The fact of two young bojs obtaining liquor there and becoming intoxicated on the street i being investigated by the authorities and the matter should be pushed if pos sible. Many a bard working man hs left hi hard-earned wages in the vi'e bole in a single night and more than one man can tell of having seen Steinbach come out nnd hauling some poor halt drunk fellow in from half a block away. Those interested in the Law and Order League movement would much better expend their energies on such a hole a this than on well regulated places run by law abiding men.

A little story which emphasizes tbe fnot that there la a great deal of human nature whero one would scarcely expect to dis cover It is told of an old Quaker. Many yenrs ago, when church organs were re garded with disfavor by many people, It was proposal to Introduce one into a New England meeting house, one of the pillars of which was an old man of Quaker blood. Ho was one of the most violent oppo nent to the plan and expressed hi views so strongly that the person who was col lecting money for the organ, when It was at last decided to have it, did not venture to call upon tha old Quaker for a subscrip tion. He met him on the street one day and wa greatly surprised when the old man took out a substantial looking wallet and presented hi in with a most generous sum to add to his collection. "Why," stammered the young man, "I I am greatly obliged, sir, but I hardly thoimht you would care to bo asked to contribute." "My son," said the Quaker, with a sus picion of a twlnklo In his serious eyes, "If thee will worship the Lord by machinery, I would like thee to have a first rato In strument." Youth's Companion.

A romantic rtory ha come to light of tbe Urst uuuceor.-fol wooing of old Com niodoro Cornell u Va.-jJerbllt, founder of the family fortunes, nnd him related to tbe New York World. The commodore' first flame wa a Miss Sully Lake of Haten Island. Sally' mother, according to tho fctory, rejected bis suit, railed hint oor trash and told him Dot to darken her door again. Aa for Sally, she waa n dutiful daughter. The scene wo the old Auatcu mansion, st the foot of Pennsylvania avenue, Clif ton, overlooking the bay. Scratched on one of the window panes facing south are to be seen to this diy the words, "Sully Lake and C ." The words were scratched with Sally' diamond ring, and the "C" presumably stands for Cornelius. Tho mansion is one of the best preserved of the pre-Itevolutlonary buildings around New York. It dates from 1710. In lt are tho same solid old whlto oak beams, cedar rafters and cypress shinglos that were there when the Knglirih flag floated over the Battery. It la ou a gently sloping hillside, running almost to the river, and the view it commands of the Narrows and upper bay and the Long ItslaDd thorn and the lower part of tho city la superb. There John II. Austen lived Ave yearn. He was a well known real estate auctioneer in tbe days of early New .York, and bo and the commodore were close friends. Mr. Vanderbllt confided much to Mm, and one of hi confidences was his ill luck with the first woman that caught his fancy, Sally Lake. Mr. Austen died a year sgo, and Ma daughter, Mrs. Oswald Muller, who resides In the old house, told tbe story to a World reporter. "The commodore used to row post thlj bouse," she said, "and soon became ac quainted with Sally Lake. Sho wus beau tiful and engaging and entirely captivated him. You see, tho wutcr 1 not many yards away. "One nllit she called to him from the shadoof the trees, 'Corned, Cornevl, why don't you round to and come In!' "Now this, the commodore used to tell my father, was just what ho was waiting for. lie made fast the boat to the rock a and ran up tho slope. Ha wore a boating suit, broud brimmed straw hat and woolen shirt with collar unbuttoned and turned down low. Hii nock, he Utsxl to tell n.y father, with a laugh, wa aa rod aa the wattle of a turkey cock. ' That wa the beginning. He called fre quently after that, and with the usual re sult. Ho became madly In love, but ths girl's mother could see no prosperous fu ture for tbo boat man, and one afternoon, alter Mr. Vanderbllt made a visit, there was a stormy scene between the mother and the daughter, for the commodore had made an Impression. The mother's firm nesa prevailed, and she forced Sally to give up ber boatmau love!. "Tho next day when Cornelius called tho door was tinning! in his face. Aa I get the stry, Mrs. ko said to him in most cutting style, 'No fucIi oor trash as Cornelius Vanderbllt will ever darken my door again.' "Mr. YuudcrLllt went oway very much cut up. He often told my father that Mrs. Lake's words were ono of his strongest lu cent I ve to lo successful in business. "The lovers corresponded for awhile, but they rover met again. "As to tho word of the widow, Mr. Vanderbllt told my father that one after noon as he and Solly were communing in the fashion of lovers and watching the passing ships, be took her diamond ring from ber finger and commenced to scratch ber oamo and his on the pane. They were surprised by tho watchful mother just as the 'C was finished. He doubtless intend ed to write Cornelius and after that tbe date." Mrs. Muller said her father had often told ber tho story, but it did not go very for. Sho was reluctant to repeat it for publication. t Chat-.. 'rarr Against Time. The youthlui iir. nr.jby, the chaplain of tho last house, wits exceedingly popular personally among the members of all par ties and creeds. He made a hot contest for tbo place and filled lt to the satisfac tion of everybody after ho had won lt. Ho is somewhat of a wag and can enjoy a joke as mush aa any layman. Tho Rev. Mr. Baghy, with but a single exception, always cut bis Invocations short at the opening of tho house each morning, and the reason for this one long prayer baa just leaked out. Ono morning during the last session the clcrka at tho speaker's desk were unable to find tho house journal, without the reading of which tho business of the house could not bo begun. The chaplain had bo gun bis prayer and waa drifting along, when tbo reading clerk touched bim on the arm and in an excite! whisper said : "Keep ou with the prayer until we find tbe JournaL We bare lost It." The chaplain continued, and a few sec onds later tho muling clerk again nudged him, requesting that bo continue longer, as they were still unable to find the miss ing volume. "Don't stop until I tell you, " he said. "Keep this thing up, so that wo don't got Into a scrape. Wo will find it in a min ute." The preacher continued bis prayer, and tho surprise of tho member grew to won der as they listened to tho long continued invocation of the Hov. Mr. llagby. Finally the missing book waa found, and the clerk nudged tho chaplain, who brought his lengthy prayer to a somewhat abrupt end. Minneapolis Journal. Soarcw of Ivory. African ivory is now conceded to be tbe finest.

The admirable celerity and aootmoyaf Napoleon's movements In tbe Held vfers due to tbe exoellent arrangements by which tbey were mads, ills two Insepa rable companions were tbe grand marshal Duroo and Caulalnoourt, master of tbe horso. The latter bad always th map of tbe country through which tbey were driv ing or riding ready for Instant use. Ths acuta of tbe Imperial carriage could be con-. verted into a couch fur the emperor's fre quent night journeys, but ordinarily Ber thler and Murat took turns at sitting at hi side, while Caulalnooort rode clone brv sldo the door. Behind, and as near tbe wheels as possible, rode 7 adjutants, 14 ordnance officer and 4 pages who must be ruady on tbe Instant to receive and carry orders. Two of tbe officers must bo famil iar with the speech of the country. Hus tan, his Egyptian body servant, rode with them. There were also two mounted lackeys, each carrying maps, papers and writing material. This escort was pro tented by a Isjdy of mounted chasseur. In case the emperor alighted for any purjioso four of these Instantly did likewise, and turroundlrg him with fixed bayonet or loaded pistols pointed outward to tbe four points of tbe compos, preserved thla rela tive position a he moved. Last of all camo tho groom with extra horses; for tbe emperor's personal use there were from seven to nine. These were substantially the arrangements still In vogue during tha Prussian campaign. Thereafter Lis dls trust of those about him gradually In creased, until toward the end of bis careex It became acute, and then, as a conse quence, the numbers of bis suit were much diminished. Whenever there waa need of post haste the emperor found relays of nine saddle horses or six carriage horses prepared at Interval ot from 7 to 10 miles along hla route. In thla way be often journeyed at the rate of 14 miles an hour for tlx hours at a time. Similar arrangements on a much smaller scale were made for the staff. Tbla body was under tbe Indispen sable Berthler and was so numerous as to be practlrally cupable of subdivision Into several. In I80o thors were 13 adjutants, three head of departments, with 5 adju tants, 31 staff officer and 13 engineers. Under tho chief of artillery wa a personal staff of 18 officers, under tbe chief of en gineers one of 19, and under the oommls sary general one of 43. Arriving at bis night quarters, tho emperor found Ma of fice ready a tent, or room, with five tables, one la the center fur himself and one at each corner for bl private secre taries. On bia own waa a map oriented and dotted with colored pins, which mark ed the position of every lsdy of his troop. For this campaign be had only one in ex istence, prepared long In advance by bi own orders. It la significant of the Prus sian ovcrconfidenoe aud supineness that they had none. As soon a possible was arranged the emperor's bod chamber, across the door of which Ilustan slept, and adjoining lt waa another for the offi cers on duty. Dinner occupied less than 20 minutes, for In tbe field Napoleon ate little, and that rapidly. By 7 In the even ing be wo asleep. At I In tbo morning tbe commander In chief arose, entered LI office, where the secretaries were already at work, found all report from the divisions ready at bis band, and then, pacing tbe floor, dictated his dispatches and tbe order or the com ing day. There Is an accepted tradition that he often simultaneously composed and uttered in alternate sentences two dif ferent letters, so that two secretaries were busy at the sametlmsln writing papers on different topics. Tbe orders, when com pleted and revised, were handed to Ber thler. By 8 In tbe morning tbey were on their way and reached tbe separate corps fresh from headquarters just befor tbe toldlers set out on their march.

A certain oriental diplomatist kept m for two hours laboring with blm through an Interpreter, and then at the end sud denly asked, "Why are yon making those notes V I told tbe interpreter they were to form the basis ot my article.
