the instrument is not a subscriber,
the fact is at once app irent, and the
person in whose office the telephone
is located is charged a fixed sum for
allowing his instrument to bo used
by one not entitled to use it. Each
ribbon will hold 250 photographs, and
when full will be filed away.

AVhen the work of the eighteenth
legislature is summed up it can be
trutufully stated that it has in its
good works exceeded public expecta
tion. Both senate and house have
been hard-working bodies, and, with
out rudder, they have struggled
igainst many difficulties, and over
coming tormiuabie ones, me legisla
ture has reallv accomplished what
ought to satisfy the people. Some very
serious blunders were committed by
patt legislatures in relation to public
lands. These have been mainly
corrected, and much valuable domain
has been reclaimed, that was regarded
a3 lost, without corresponding benefits
to the state. It is estimated that in
the neighborhood of four millions
iicres of the public domain, set apart
for debt payment at fifty cents an
acre, has been saved, and that in this
item alone the state saves over seven
millions of dollars. The four million
acres of land was on the market
at fifty cents an acre, and the
revenue derivable . under tho sale
would have been two million, live
hundred thousand dollars. With the
price of land fixed now at two dollars
per acre, the state gains the difference
between two million live .hundred
thousand and ten million dollars. Of
these lands tho university nas been
given one million acres and the public
free schools a like amount, represent
ing at present valuation two million
dollar for the university and the
same sum for the free schools.
The valuable timbered lands of tho
state are to le watched with zealous
care, and. while much of these hinds
passed away from the statu under the
old law, enough remains to tell hand
somely in swelling in time the school
fund of the state. The provision for
deriving a revenue from the mineral
lands, belonging to the state and to
the several endowment funds, is a
wise conclusion to a question that
has been agitated for years. Un
der this law it may be expected
the mineral resources of the state will
be rapidly developed. The long de
ferred return to the university fund
of moneys taken from it years ago
was a just act, and by it impetus is to
be given to the early successful es'
' tablishinent of a university, which
must before long be the pride of
every Texan. Xot only must this
noble act be chronicled of the
eighteenth legislature, but its bounty
in lands, donated to. the cause
of higher as well as lower education,
gives it honorable -distinction in
in the legislative annals of Texas
Such matters are of state-wide impor
tance, but these are by no means all
of such importance. The acts will
speak for themselves, and the labors
performed, both of a general and i
special character, will compare in im
portance with any Texas legislature,
and even surpass all, when it is borne
in mind that everything done was
purely of legislative conception. It
did not abolish the jury
system, nor did it pass a law that any
body in the state shall be inoculated,
nolens volens, with all the diseases
that man is heir to; but it did rally
nobly in the cause of humanity, and
lifted the state out of a most despic
able position, in which it was placed
many years ago under radical su
premacy. The one act of abolishing
penal servitude in Texas, of stopping
this disgraceful sale of convicts to
individuals, is worth more to Texas
than the. price of twenty legislatures.
Already the papers of other states
teem with praises of a people who ad
vance upon the moral plane as do
Texans, and the high opinions enter
tained abroad of a noble people who
can thus cast aside, inhumanities
when other states hesitate, will tell
in favor of Texas to the extent of
millions. The eighteenth legislature
has done well, and the praise belongs
to it alone, for, unaided by the usual
surroundings, it has accomplished all
that has been done.
The Prince of Wales asks the czar
to excuse him from attending the
coronation, since he cannot absent
himself from England for a month at
that particular time. The prince we
expect indulged in a mental reserva
tion that together with Nihilists and

perpetual These royal heads wear
uneasy crowns.
The comments on the vast profit
made by the capitol syndicate, which
now find their way into many of the
Texas papers, would be very good in
many instances if it were not that the
syndicate has made no sale. They
have no title to the lands and cannot
sell them until the conditions of a
contract have been complied with,
these conditions being the building of
the new capitol.
The Bessemer steel matters of the
country are now threatened with a

The pulp of which the rails are en
tirely conposed is, by pressure, made
as solid as metal and much more dura
ble, while the safety thus obtained is
multiplied by atmospheric changes
that comprise the main drawback to
steel Besides this, the cost of manu
facture is so much less as to promise
universal adoption in the event that
the test proves to the expectations of

ular constitutional convention to be
held later. They propose to clefine
boundaries, select a state name, adopt
a constitution, and elect senators and
representatives, and then demand ad
mittance into the union. This pro
posed assertion of the right to call
and hold a constitutional convention,
the legislature having failed to secur
an effectuation of its act, is legitimate
and unassailable.

Speaker Gibson has made an en

which every member and every ele

treated has greatly popularised him.
Besides, his ability as a presiding
officer is now recognized as second, if
so' at all, to but few men in any
country. His quick perception, his
wonderful readiness as a parliamen
tarian, the remarkable retention of
all points, surrounding a measure
under consideration and his prompt
decision made him perfectly at ease
in managing a large deliberative
body. Few men combine the facul
ties necessary for such a presiding
officer.'and Mr. Gibson appears to pos

was a most fortunate one.
The trial of six Nihilists at St. Pe

the single matter of conspiracy and

death appears to have no terrors for
the Nihilists. Like all things else he
is a product of a cause, and that cause
cannot be uprooted by destroying its

Yet underlying their actions is
patriotism in some degree. Russia

Two-fifths of the adult male pop

manufacturers not one can go to the
polls and record his ballot, unless it
be under the favor of his employer

that person may have in view. A few
rich men alone control the state. The

condition of things. It was made on
a demand for a new constitution,
which would accord to the poor man
the same rights that are enjoyed by
the rich. The Sprague ticket repre

Their Distinctive Features

From Our Special Correspoudeut. J
New York, April 18,1883.
New York has near fifty first-class
monster hotels, and some of the most
prominent of them possess distinctive
features and are generally patronized
by a class ot guests who have
some common bona ot interest
or svmpathy. The causes that
lead to this is either nationality.
politics or business. The Brevort

believe it does not advertise for it
outside of city papers, as does the
Grand Union hotel, across the street
from the grand union depot, and the
Hotel Dain, on Fifteenth street, near
Union square. These two hotels are
well patronized by commercial men.
The Hoffman House on Broad
way above Madison square, is the
trysting place of brokers and well-to-do
speculators, and is selected by
many army and navy officers wherein
to give dinners to friends. The Albe
marle, hard by, enjoys a liberal trade
from distinguished foreigners, am
bassadors and diplomatists. Bern

house, all on Union Square, are fre-
nuented bv actors and actresses. The
principal part of the ratronage of the

while the Sturtevant house is c. own
ed with people engaged in mining
or the manufacture of mining
machinery. The lotty JJuekinghaui
is honored by royalty guests from

,The Thirteen Club of this city, now
something more than a year old, has
given occasion for much comment con
cerning the superstitions attaching to
that peculiar number. Every one
knows, or should know, that the bad
reputation of thirteen at table came
from the important and solemn event
which is called the Last Supper, when
Judas was exposed as the traitor.
But in none of the many articles re
cently published about the fatal
fifteen do we remember to have
seen any allusion to the
well-known fact that there
were thirteen American colonies in
1776, that threw off the yoke of Eng
lish oppression; or that there were
thirteen original states in the Ameri
can Union; or that there were for a
long time only thirteen stars on the
flag; or that there are now only thir
teen stripes on the flag; or that the
grand motto of the Union E Pluri
bus Unum consists of thirteen let
ters; or that our three great military
presidents Andrew Jackson, Zachary
Taylor and Ulysses S. Grant each
had thirteen letters in his name.

A very charming event it is when the

the fashion to give two entertain

that she is supposed to part with and
another to the mature people, into
whose ranks she is to be ushered. To

parties must lw: given in the evening
ind the second in the afternoon.
On no account must the young
lady wear anything but white. As
this custom is comparatively a new
one in this city, the rapidity with
which it has grown is remarkable.
During the present season there have
been innumerable parties of this kind
and they have had a peculiar interest
of their own. Young ladies who now
formally enter what is called the "gay
vortex, are scheduled as it were, and
the voting gentlemen are present
when they are launched upon the
world of fashion, with the same curi
osity that, steamship men would ex
hibit at the launching of a new ship.

The busy counting of the money
in the treasury still goes on, and what
ought only to require a few days'

one in Washington. A good many
subordinate changes have been made

the most disgusting appointment
Lately made in Washington is the
appointment of Sam Lee, the cheeky
negro congressional contestant from
South Carolina, as a special agent of
the general land office, with head
quarters in Alabama. The appoint
ment savors ot Grantism, and has
caused a ripple of dissatisfaction in
respectable Republican circles. Lee
is an exceedingly loquacious and ig
norant mulatto. lie has been a very
effective tool in the ' Carolina back
woods, and has long been suffering
for an office. But his loving breth
ren of the Republican persuasion did
not harken to his wishes until lately.
when he threatened to leave the fold
and seek other political pastures,
Sam will be a Republican now until
death claims him.

things are evolving. It is a gieit
thing to believe that. There seems to
have been in this great turbulent
world no more order of procedure
than there is when two whirlwinds
meet on the ocean; yet even in the
most turbulent storms there - are in
exorable laws as fixed as amy in the
universe; but to those who look at
this universal strife and disorder it
almost seems as though there was no
Providence and no directing power,
and to all such it is a great comfort
to believe that slowly as it is un-
foldfolding there is this great
the termination of it shall
surely be the blossom and the fruit.
There is to be a day when that which
represents violence and cruelty will
mingle with that which represents
innocence and love. The question,
therefore, is not the coming man, but
the coming age. Is there to be one?
The coming age is that in which the
law of force is to give way to the law
of influence, when the law of hatred
will give way to the law of love; for

universe is the law of love, and it is
that which is slowly, but surely, leav

world has been a history ot struggle.
There has been one perpetual labor
pain a vast struggle ot extri
cation and ascent; but there
has been one continuous ten
dency upward and the early develop
ments nave been the slowest;
the blossom and the fruit are yet to
come. But the tendency has all been
one way. Not that there have not
been back-sets, rebounds but the
tendency is away from violence and
cruelty and toward sympathy and
kindness and love. ven war has
lost half its horrors. It was first war
and extermination; then war and
slavery; then war for power and do
minion; then war for wealth and
commerce, and then war for liberty
and for principle, and public senti
ment condemns any war that does
not represent justice to the rest of
the world. The buccaneers could
once ravage islands and no one con
demn it. but now France cannot cross
the Mozambique channel and invade
Madagascar without arousing an
indignant protest from the other na
tions of the world. Great Britain
could not now invade and despoil In
dia, though she is permitted to retain
what she wrongfully obtained, and
war in Zululand has been abandoned;
the public sentiment ot Lngland her
self has been against it, and has com
pelled its abandonment. And if this
is s.o in war, it is of course very much
more apparent in other things. La

A Philadelphia dispatch gives an
account of a game of draw poker
played by a couple of young club
men of that city, Thomas A. Scott
and John Tucker, la the course of
the game a "jack pot" was secured,
and Mr. Scott, son of ' the deceased
railroad king, finding that he held
three queens, quietly remarked that
his hand was worth twenty dollars,
and laid down a gold coin represent
ing that amount Mr. Tucker there
upon examined his pictures and found
that he had a pair of jacks and the
ten, nine and seven of diamonds, one
of his jacks being also of the diamond
suit, and remarked that it would cost
Mr. Scott fifty dollars to play, and put
up that amount - Mr. Scott then drew
another queen, thus giving him fonr
royal ladies, and Mr. Tucker split his
jacks and drawing to his four flush
took in the eight of diamonds. This
done, the fun began and tho account
proceeds as follows:
Mr. Scott said that his hand was
worth $1000 and put that amount in
the pot
"My hand is worth $3000," said Mr.
Tucker, in a tone whose nervousness
caused Mr. Scott to think that per
haps an attempt to bluff was in prog
ress. "Five thousand more," Mr. Scott
"Fifteen thousand more,"" Mr.
Tucker retorted.
Mr. Scott's confidence in his queens
was undiminished, and he chuckled to
himself to think what a snap Tucker
had got himself into. There might
be some doubt about Mr. Tucker's
ability to pay if he lost but it was
worth the risk.
"Thirty thousand more," was the
net result of Mr. Scott's brief self
consultation. Mr. Tucker paused, ran his eyes
over his hand to see whether it was
all right, and apparently went into a
mental computation of his bank ac
count. "I call," he said, throwing an
1. 0. U. to balance the pot
"Four queens," said Mr. Scott,
spreading out the hand on the table
and making a move as though to rake
in the stakes.
"Not so fast, if you please a straight
flush!" said Mr. Tucker.
Mr. Scott's face fell and Mr. Tucker
pocketed his winnings, over $54,000
in that hand.
Such is club life among the young
men of America who have inherited
great fortunes. Messrs. Scott and
Tucker now stand at the head of jack
pot heroes.
A. Story of the Sternest Jndge that
Arkansas Ever Had.
Old Judge Grepson, a justice of the
peice, was never known to smile.
He came to Arkansas years ago. be
fore the "carpet-baggers" began their
reckless sway, and year after year, by
the will of the voters, he held his
place as magistrate. The lawyers
who practiced in his court never
joked with him, because everyone
soon learned that he never engaged in
levity. Every morning, no matter
how bad the weather might be, the
old man took his place behind the bar,
which, with his wn hands, he had
made, and every evening just at a
certain time he closed his book and
went home. No man ever engaged
him in private conversation, be
cause he. would talk to no one.
No one ever went to his home,
a little cottage among the trees
in the city's outskirts, because he had
never shown a disposition to make
welcome the visits of those who lived
even in the immediate vicinity. His
office was not given him through the
influence ot "electioneering, because
he never asked a man for his vote.
He was first elected because, having
once been summoned in a case ot ar
bitration, he exhibitet the executive
side of such a legal mind that the
people nominated and elected him,
He soon gained the name of the
"Hard Justice," and every lawyer in
Arkansas referred to his decisions.
His rulings were never reversed by
the higher courts, lie showed no
sentiment in decision. He stood
upon the platform of a law which he
made a study, and no man disputed
Several days ago a woman charged
with misdemeanor was arraigned be
fore him. "The old man seems more
than ever unsteady," remarked a law
yer, as the magistrate took his seat,
" I don't see how a man so old can
stmd the vexations of a court much
longer. .
"I am not weU to-day," said the
judge, turning to the lawyers, "and
any cases that you may have you will
piease dispatch them to the best, and
let me add, quickest ot your ability.'
livery one saw that the old man
was unusually feeble, and no one
thought of a scheme to prolong a dis
cussion, ior an the lawyers had learned
to reverence him.
"Is this the woman?" asked the
judge. "Who is defending her ?"
"I have no defense, your honor," the
woman replied. "In fact. I do not
think that I need any. for I am here
to confess my guilt. No man can de
fend me," and she looked at the mag
istrate with a curious gaze. "I have
been arrested on a charge of disturb
ing the peace, and 'm willing to sub
mit my case. I am dying of con
sumption, judge, and I know that
any ruling made by the law can have
but little effect on me;" and
she coughed a hollow, hack
ing cough, - and drew around her.
an old black shawl that she wore.
The expression of the magistrate re
mained unchanged, but his eyelids
dropped and he did not raise them
when the woman continued: "As I
say, no man can defend me. I am too
near that awful approach, to pass
which we know is everlasting death
to soul and body. Years ago I was a
child of brightest promise. I lived
with my parents in Kentucky. Way
ward and light-hearted, I was admired
by all the gay society known , in the
neighboihood. A man came and pro
fessed his love for me. I don't pay
this judge, to excite your sym, ivthy.
I have many anl many a time been
drawn before courts, but I ncer be
fore spoke of my past life."
She coughed again, ;iml caught a
flow of blood on a handkerchief,
which she pressed to her lips. "I
speak of it now because I know that
this is the last court on earth before
which I will be arraigned. I was
fifteen years old when I fell in love
with the man. My father said he
was bad, but I loved him. He came
again and again, and when my father
said that he should come no more I
ran away and married him. i My
father said I should never come home.
I had always been his pride and had
loved him so dearly, but he said that
I must never again come to his home
my home, the home of my youth
and happiness. How I longed
to see him. How I yearned
to put my head on his breast.
My husband became addicted
to drink. He abused me. 1 I wrote to
my father, asking him to let me come
home, but the answer that came was:
'I do not know you!' My husband
died yes, cursed God and died.
Homeless and wretched, and with my
little boy, I went out into the world.
My child died, and I bowed down and
wept over a pauper's grave. I wrote
to my father again; but he answered:
'I know not those who disobey my
commandments ' I turned away from
that letter hardened. I spurned my
teachings. Now I am here."
Several lawyers rushed forward. A
crimson tide flowed from her lips.
They leaned her lifeless head back
against the chair. The old magis
trate had not raised his eyes. "Great
God ! " said a lawyer, "he is dead."
The woman was his daughter.
