Ohuroli and State Interview With i Cardinal TIio of Compromise Nhort orNulimlMHlou With Kins Humbert. Rome, July 8. There has been a great doal of talk latoly about tbo position of tlio Vatican and tlio Powors. In Franco, whero overy action of Italy is viewed with suspicion, it has boon said over and ovor again that tho Popo was about to ontcr the triple alliance. Such a stop could, of course, only have ono meaning, according to tho diplomatists. It would mean a rupturo botween tho Vatican and Franco, and strengthen tho hands of Bismarck. It is lmpossiblo to Bpond a fortnight in Italy without coming to sco how very remoto is this reconciliation of tho Vatican and the Quirinal, which has given rise to so much anxious speculation. " You aro more fortunate than I," said King Umberto to tho writer ono day last week, in reply to somo romark. " 1 cannot go to the Vatican." Tho speech was, of courso, only half serious, but it expressed the Quirinal sido of tho Vatican question admirably. Tho two palaces whloh face each other on tlia Ro man hills aro still separated by much more than tho breadth of tho Stomal City. Were Leo XIII. to bo askod for his view ho would say, more mournfully perhaps, " I oannot go to the Quirinal." There was a time at which a meeting of tho spiritual and temporal Roman sovereigns was possible, but it has long gone by. Had Leo XIII. on his acceesion mado a Btep toward a reconciliation with tho "usurper, as thore is reason to bolievo he was more than inclined to do, thero might now have been no Vatican question nt all at least so far as Italy is concerned. . For good or evil ho listened to the counsels of tho "no compromise " Cardinals. Ho was persuaded that the dignity and salvation of the Ohuroh forbade him to mako tho slightest advances. So, like his predecessor,-Pio Nooo, ho remained an august "pris oner;' nor with all tho good will in the world could his jailers give him a liberty which lm refuses. .That yoars past been a tendency on tho part of the hostile parties in Romo to draw nearer to each other and forgivo their grievances is, however, perfectly true. A now generation has boon springing up in Italy since tho " spoliation " forces drove the spiritual Bovcreign to his present intronchmonts. It is difficult, for young men who wore boys in 1870 to feel very bitter about tho real or theoretical wrongs dono in their fathers' day. The national resentment felt by the " invaders " at the sudden enmity of the ecclesiastical party has, on tho other hand, cooled thoroughly, and indeed no longer has any existed. In a timid, way tho soldiers of Church nnd Stato are coming togothor, socially and politically; but those who fancy they will live to see an open reconciliation between their leaders are, I fear, ovor sanguino and will be disappointed. Non pos9iimu3 is still the wotohword at tho Vatican. The cardinals havo forootton nothine, whatever their nartv mav havo dono. Tho fiction of the. imprisonment of tho Popo is still kept up at the Vatican, and tho man supposed, in Romo, to havo tho most chanco of somo day replacing the mild and venerable PontllF who now under Heaven presides over the destinies of Catholicism is perhaps the stanohest of all the cardinals in his determination not to yield an inch till the Italian King has cried mea culpa I. and re. tored his capital to the ohuroh. For that dream the restoration of tho temporal power of the Pope haa not yot ceased to fascinate many, and among them tho most intolligcnt of tho cardinal. 'How or when it will come about," said one of them to me last weok, " Cod knows. I shall not sco it, for I am old and havo not many years before me. But you may see it, or, if not you, your ohildren. The present stato of things cannot last. Tho King and his court aro only tolerated, remomber, at tho Quirinal. No European government has formally recognized them. Tho temporal power is a necessity for tho ohuroh. Since the invadors dospoiled her she bus lost muoh of the rcspoot once rinid her. Tho relations between tho Court of Belgium and the Vatican havo been broken off. Cardinnl Jacobinl has had to threaten a rupturo with Franco. At Moscow, during tho recent coronation fetes, Qcnoral von Schweiuitz, the German Ambassador, pi- Bumcd to bo impertinent in his attitudo toward tho Papal Nuncio." "There was a time when nuncios wore very differently troated," added tho Cordinal, sadly. " With the Quirinal the Vicar of Christ can havo no dealings. Wo must live in hopo of somo providontial intervention, some great popular uprising, somo suddon or gradual rovulsion of popular feeling that will give tho Holy Father bick his righttul position and restoro Rome to him." His Eminence was equally uncompromising when he spoke of the recent modifications of Bismarck's policy. Ho regarded anything less than a oompleto' annulmont of tho obnoxious and unrighteous laws of May as utterly unsatisfactory to the Church, and trusted that, thanks to the firmnoss1 of tho Vatioan and its supporters in the German Parliament, Rome would yet conquer Berlin. A Prince Denounces Ilia Title Ami! Marries Ilia Governess Berlin July 8. Tho Post announces that Prince Aloxander of tho owner of the castle and estate of Sayn, near Coblinti,has renounced his princoly titlo and rank and privileges, and has from the German Emperor the name and titlo of Count of Hachenberg. His wifo, the Princess Yvonn,'died in Octobor, 1881, and ho has since marriod the governess of liis chlldron. According to the family compacts (as with other modiatked princes) tho Prince could only contract a morganatic marriage with a woman who was not of rank similar to his own. Liko many other German prlncos, and his own elder brother Prince Frederick in tho same position a few yoars ago, he preferred to descend from his high rank to a lower level, where projudioo or trnditlonal otlquotto will not hinder him from placing his wifo by his sido. The princely rank and estatos have passod to his oldest son, Prinoo Stanislas, who is in his tenth year. Princo Alexandor himself is nearly thirty-six yoars of ago. . DID THE EDITORS FIGHT P Mr. Knot, of tho Texas Hlttlws, Says lie DI1. Philadelphia, July 8. J. Armory Knoti ono of tho editors of Texas Siftings, who js said to havo fought a duel with David D Bhcnhan," of Now York, on Thursday, nt Fiddler's Island, off Far Rocknway, arrived in this city and registered at tho Continental. Mr. Knot is of medium height, sparcoly unlit, wears full brown whiskers and mostacho a la Dundreary, and the foaturo in his faco which attracts most attention nftor his restless brown eyes is tho nose, which is long and aquiline. Although at first sight Mr. Knot gives one the impression of ono of thoso uncommonly shrowd gontlomen keenly alivo to his own intorcsts nnd of his riowapnper, a short acquaintance develops tho fact that he is what, for want of a synonym, may bo stylod a follow. "Oh, yes; Sheahan and I fought a duel, and I got a scratch, and now wo aro as good friends ns ever wo woro," said he, whilo dining with two friends at tlio Journalists' Club. " Tho reports that havo appeared in tho papers of tho affair aro corrcot in the main, but I do not wish you or anybody elso to suppose that because I havo boon out with Sheahan I am an of the duello. I may say distinctly that I am not, but now aud then in a man's lifo certain conditions nriBO that his pursuing a lino of action of which ho personally disapproves.- One tiling, I should like to correct. The impression has been created by certain Mcomplishcd, but highly imaginative reporters, thut wo were both intoxicated, or at least partially so. This is far from tho truth, for wo lisiik only claret and champagne at dinner, und very uiodorately of each.'' , t!,Da4rflU.anticipate.Jhatv.nny effort-will be mode by tho Now York authorities to arrest your lato opponent nnd yourself?" " Well, really, 1 don'tknow. I certainly thought it possible this morning that something of the kind might occur, and, so thinking, I changed my clothes and drovo out of New York nnd lodo ncross tho ferry to Jersey City, in the stutiy seclusion that a New York liackiimn is always ready to u third for anoro or less extortionate sum. 1 intend to leave hero for Texas to-morrow," continued Mr. Knot, "and 1 dcu't think tlio authorities are likely to bring mo buck from there ;" and there was a merry twinklo in the humorist's 'lett eye ns he spoke. The visitor evinced a not unnatural curiosity to see the work of the bullet that iiuitleBly sought, a temporary lodging in the Toxan editor's anatomy; but, although, as Mr. Knot sipped his champagne j'rappe ho used his right hand aud arm without apparent otl'ort, and worked his left elbow with a will as lie plied an uncommonly active fork, ho was uppareutly indisposed to explain by ocular demonstration the anomaly of a man with a bullet wound in his arm using tho said momber with unrestricted freodom. To an inquiry as to tho present whereabouts of Mr. Sheahan, Mr. Kuox made answer: "I cannot say just whore be is at present, but he is keeping out of the way and probably will continue to do bo for some time. Tho last I heard of him was trom Bridgeport." Mr. Knot was ready and willing to talk on any topio except the duol. His business enterprises, the publio mon ho has met in New York, literature, art, tho drama anything, in fact, but the hostile meeting. It is my first duel," ho said, as ho bude his visitor a cheery good night, "but my partnor Sweot has been out soven times, aud he is coverod w'h scars from the top of his head to tho soles of his feet." What Shall Be Uoue With Our lied Brothers? Washington, July 8. Tho Secretary of the Interior, having in mind tho action of the Apaches in leaving the San Carlos reservation some time since and going on the war-path, is not disposed tolfurthor harbor thoso recently captured by General Crook, for fear thoir iutlueneo may bvcod more discontent, and that his department should bo held responsible for future outbreaks. This was Secretary Tollor'a opinion at tho oonforence to-day botween Goneral Crook, Socretary Lincoln and Soorotary Toller. The proposition, thorofore, to transfer the San CarloB agonoy to the War Do- partmont, leaving its financial ad-De-will ministration to tho Intorior partment, is tho ono which firobably bo adopted, tho transfer a departnro from tho long established peaoe policy. General Crook says ho was not at liberty to Break of the several interviews had with the PreBldont and Secretaries, but hoped to mako such progress as would onablo him to leave Washington for tho West shortly. In reply to tho quostion whothor he thought his recommendations relative to what should bo dons with the captured Apaches would be adopted by the Government, he replied : "Well, I would rather not speak of that question now. I will say, however, that no conclusion has been arrived as yetbut I am to have another intorview with the Secrotary, when, perhaps, tho question will be settled ono way or the other." OUR CHINESE CITIZENS Are There, or Can There Be, Any In the United" States. Tho Ktntits oQ tlio tJnlted States I.nvrn nnd Decisions Matte Thereon. New York, July 8. Some fifty or sixty Chinomon in this city have laid claim to be naturalized citizens of this oountry. In view of tho right to vote involved, tho olnim is important. Tho fact is, howover, that sovoral Chineso citizens havo unsuccessfully applied for naturalization to tho Federal courts. Fivo years ngo the Circuit Court of tho United States in tho District of California refused to grant tho petition of Ah Yup, a nativo of China of the Mongolian race, for admission ns a citizen of the United States. The Court on that wns held by Judgo Sawyer, tho Circuit Judge, who declared that the petition stated all tho qualifications required by tlio statute to entitlo tho applicant to bo naturalized, provided the stat uto authorized the naturalization a a nativo of China of tho Moi gollau race. After a careful consideration of tho question, ho canio to the conclusion that a person of tho Mongolian raw is not a white person within tho meaning of tho statute, nnd thut the existing provisions of law exclude from naturalization all but wliito persons nnd persons of African nativity or African dosccnt. According to Judgo Sawyer's view, the words "whito persons" mcanporsons of Jhe Caucasian race. Mongolians, on tho other hand, aro usually classified ns yellow, and sometimes 'ns tawny; and in nonoofthe ordinary ethnological classifications arc t he Mongolians described as whito. Judgo Sawyer also shows, by roferenco to tho debates of Congress ct tho time tho naturalization laws woro extended so as to embrace the negroes, that every Senator who took part in tho discussion, including Mr. Sumner, supposed that tho Chinese would be excluded if tho word "whito" was allowed to remain in the statute. A decision at varianco with that in California haa. beon mado in somo other district, but Judgo Sawyer's opinion seems a sound exposition of tho law on tho subject. It Is possiblo, however, that somo may have been lawfully naturalized betweon tho time of tho enactment of tho Revised Statutes of tho Unitod States and tlio passage of the act to correct errors therein, on Fobruary V.187" From-1802 the general law had been that any alien being a free white person " might bo naturalized. . In 1870 Congress extended the naturalization laws "to aliens of African nativity and persons of African desoent." When all the statutes of tho United States,, gonrrnl and permanent in their nnture, which were In fprco on December 1, 1873, came to be rovised and included in what are now known as tnc ueviscu otaiuies oi tho United States, the revisers omitted the words' " white persons," and made the law read, ' "An alien may he admitted to bcoomo a citizen of tho Un ted States in tho fol lowing manner," So., without any limitation as to the color or race of the alien. By the amendments of lS7o, which wero expressly intended to rectify mistakes in tlio revision, tho naturalization laws wero restricted to froo white persons and Africans. Before theso amendments, however, the Revised Statues in tonus seem to have war-rented tho admission of any alien to citizenship, provided ho possessed the other qualifications required by law. A VERITABLE PARADISE. A Community oriltn Vhu Winkles in ' Ohio, Who Are n Law Unto Them selves. I Cleveland, July 8. About eighty miles from this city and six milos south of Mineral Point, the terminus of the Valloy road, at the Wheeling junction of the Wheeling & Lake Erio Railroad, thero ia, a quaint little old village known as Zoar, inhabited by a strange, frugal and industrious people, the happiest, porhaps, in ths world. They ' know no care, nothing worries or troubles them ; a large number of them never saw the outsido of thoir beautiful homo, a voritabla paradise, and troublo themselves little, if any, about the turmoil and strifos of tho wicked world. The colony was first founded In 1817 by Huber and Ackermann two Germans, the former a nativo of Wurtomburg and the lattor hailing from Bavaria. Shortly afterward, In tho Barao year, they and a few followers from tho snrao country formed.a community and named it Zoar, because they lookod upon their homo as a placo of rofugo from tho world, which thoy termed Bodora and Gomorrah. Tho.inhabitantB, who havo no dosiro to amass wealth, work for one common end, that is, for tlio good of the community, which owns and controls the cntiro villago, including thousands of acres of tho richest land in tho Buokeyo Stato. The money goes into ono common treasury. The necessaries of lifo, including food, provisions and garments aro furnished by tho village officials, consisting of three tiustoes nnd a committee of fivo, who are annually by ballot. No person is permitted to permanently resido in tho community un less he become a membor by professing ttetr faun. Any ono wisning to uo bo is allowod to entor on probation. If, in the course of one year, bis charaotor has been found to bo pure and unimpeaohablo, h can join the lower class of Zoarites, and later on, should ho fool bo disposed, he may booomo a member of tho first olass, giving him all tho privileges of voting for otfioors, The village contains about 200 inhabitants, whioh number has beoa the tamo sinco 1817, and never incroa sos or decroases to anynqtlceable oxtent. Young mor tompt .xt , L eiTby Us gaycly, frequently leave the tow, for the city and never return; but a crroat p'roportlon llvo nnd die there, and tholittji cemetory marks tho graves of many of the first fnmllles, who havo nevor loft tho town afior tholr ontranco. Somo of the descendants of the original founders are all still residents there ; in fact, 'all but throo wore born and bred there, but thoy all descend from natives of Wurtemburg, Bavaria and Baden. Simon Bouter, tho gardnor of tho town, one of the living three who emigratod to tho village, came there in 1840. He has charge of the most beautiful gtrlen imaginable Ho raises not only vegetables and flowers of Northorn origin, but makes a specialty of growing tropical plants of the rarest sorts, including a comploto varlotyof tho cactus, all grades of tho night-blooming cerous, magnolias, lomon and ornngo trees, bearing on tho avorago 800 lemons and oranges upon overy trco. Ho is a complete mnstcr of his art, and has tho botanical names of all tho flowers at his tonguo's name. They profess to bo as happy and contented as tho wealthiest people In tho world; thoy want for nothing; thoro is no jealousy among their mombors, nnd they always abide by tho decision of tho committee. Their houses aro not alike; some have a poorer appoaranco than others, but thoy are all satisfied, porform thoir labor according to their ability, and when Sunday comes havo one day of rest. They bellevo in tho Old and Now Testaments, attend services on Sunday morning and ovonlug. havo no ministor, but one of tho older members is chosen to read a ohapter from tbo Bible, mako a few comments porhaps, and that is all. They marry and aro given in marriage with the least possible ceromony, and tholr children are cducatod in two good sohools, where both German and English aro taught. WHISKY EXPORTATION. Tho Gronnds or the Attorney General's Opinion nnd How It AlFccts Distillers. Wasuinqton, July 8. Tho law tho oxport of Whisky as interpreted by Solicitor Gcnoral Phillips, whoso opinion is Indorsed by Attorney-General Browstor, is regarded by dealers as deoldcdly disadvantageous to their Interests. By tho act of May 28, 1880, distilled spirits may romain in warehouse for three years from entry without paymout of tho intornnl revenue tax. At the expiration of that period tho tax must be paid. Dealers who do not want to thrown their whisky an tho market are naturally averse to paying the tax on it whilo in store. In order to S3capo this, tux they concoivod the plan of exporting and then reimporting their goods. By soction 3.380 of tho Rovised Statutes distilled spirits may bo withdrawn , from . J for export without payment of tho tax. By sections 2,600 spirits of domestic production may.be rcimportcd by payment of a duty eqnalto tho iuternal revenue tax, and by another section thoy may no Kept in uonu lor ono yenr ami mc duties pnid nt" the time of withdrawal, or throe years by payment of tho duties increased ten per cent. The scheme of tlio dealers wns to withdraw their spirits from the warehouso before the tax became due, ship it to whoro it could be stored to advantage and where tho climate is remarkably favorable to the aging of spirits, and re-ship it to this country when they wero ready to sell. By this" course they would not escape payment of tho interim! revenue tax, because thoy would have to pay It on reimporting tho whisky or withdrawing it from the bonded warehouso after its But they would postpone the time of paying tho tax until they were ready to put tho whisky on tlio market. Tho opinion of the Attorney General s this sohemo. Ho holds that shipment out of the country with tho intention and for the oxpross purpose of shlppin'g baok again is not an exportation within the moaning of tho law, ann honco does not exempt tho spirits from the rovenuo tax due and payable at the expiration of three years from the time of deposit In the warehouse. This decision applies, however, only to cases where the dealer ships oilt of the country with the intention of shipping back again. It does not apply to a bona fide export or to a reimport of what was exported in good faith. For oxample, a man may ship whisky to a foreign country with tbo intention of soiling it there. He may afterward find tho home hotter than the foreign market, change his mind and bring his goods baok. This would be a bona fide export and roimport. Whothor a shipment is sunh an oxport or not deponds on the intention of the shipper, and tho question of Intention k to bo determined by proof. Th Shnh or Persia's Grcnt lMlgrim age. Teheran, July 8. Tho reports ns to tho serious illness of the Shah aro so far from bolng true that he had been on a hunting expedition in tho mountains of Djadjorub, and that on his return to Teheran he mado preparations for his doparturo upon a pilgrimage to Meshod. This journoy will extend over four months, as Meshed is forty-five days' march from Tohoran, and tho Shah has taken with him all his household and 18,000 soldiers. Three thousand mules and caraols wero required for tho transport of the luggago alone. Tho Shah has formally sanctlonod the project of prolonging tho line of railway already opened to the Persian Gulf, and this lino will oxtend In an oaitcrly direction to the Russinn railways recently opened in ; tJie CancasnB. It will have its westorn terminus at Enzell, a port on tho Caspian Sea, and, passing througn tno ispanan nd Tohoran, will havo its eastern terminus upon the Peraian Gulf, oonneoting tho two soas by a line 1,125 miles in length. Thero is no danger of the ordor of succession being modinod even if the Shah were to die. He says that the Torsions aro very much attached to tho present dynasty, and the Shah's eldost eon haa no need to four any competition. Mi From the Wires.
