Peshall sets the best sort of example with his subscription of $10 to buy them Christmas presents. Who ■will be tbe next to join the roll of UUUU1 ι Jacky Lynch. "Jacky" Lynch has got so accus tomed to violate the law that he thinks he is merely exercising his rights as a citizen in doing so. Thus when the police raid his place, he meets them with forcible resistance as if he were repelling an unlawful ag gression, and when he has to succumb to superior strength he casts around to find some explanation of his case as one whose views and theories of life were rudely shattered and destroyed by the ruthless hand of injustice. He cannot realize that his arrest is the result of breaking the law. It is true he keeps his bar open on the Sab bath against the law; it is true that he makes his dance hall a meeting place for dissolute men and women— or worse, for dissolute men and foolish girls. But these things are of no con séquence in his mind. He cannot re alize that they cairy a penalty with them. He must seek further for an explanation of the evil that has over taken him. And a precious explanation he evolves. Polit ics, he cries, politics are the cause of my suffering. I am a martyr to the cause of political treach ery. How absurd is this. The fellow has been outraging good order and corrupting the morals of men and ■women all his life, and now that retribution overtakes him he must pose as a political martyr. No, no. Jacky it won't do. You are in the toils at last, and no vain pleas of this sort will excite the public commiser ation. The dnly wonder is that Chief Mur phy did not close this vile place long ago. It was fully exposed in The Subday MoitJUU .N'kws, and it was notorious in the neighborhood it dis graced. But we presume the Chiei desired to havo a clear case and was collecting evidence. Sometimes it takes the police a long time to move, but, we observe, they generally get mere au iue saine. Engine No. 42 on the Susquehanna end Western Railroad killed three men at Little Perry. Train No. 42 on the P. R. R. killed three men at Taconl. Engine No. 42 on the P. W. & B. killed three men near Baltimore. Let us see, 3 into 42; ahem, 14, not 13 times—that is strange. Thb work of the chopper now makes the political woods resound. Little Mr. Large has got to work. The Race Problein in the South. The New York Press, a petty Re publican print of the warpish kind, is in a fearful state of mind because Henry W. Grady, at the Merchants' Annual Dinner in Boston, declared that the South would not consent to be governed by negroes. It may be that Mr. Grady's way of putting the case ίε somewhat more rhetorical than reasonable; but it may perhaps bring the editor of the Press to his senses to ask him whether he would like to see the negro element obtain in a NorUi ern State the same ascendancy with which the Republican party desires to endow it in the South. In the Northern States it is easy foi us all to take a philosophical view ol : the race question. The negro element : ie trifling in our population, and it can 1 by no possibility acquire any special j influence in the government of us. In i the South, at least in some States, the , white population stands in daiiger of ι being dominated by the black, by I sheer force of numbers. I Theoretically, of course, the major j ity rules, without distinction of race. ! coior, or previous condition of servi tude. but we do not seem to think that it would be pleasant to us. or advantageous to the country that the colored element, say in New Jersey, by sheer procréât)veness should as sume control of us and our affairs,— should rule us and represent us as its ignorance might dictate. We have not observed that Republi cans themselves specially like this ! sort of thing. In fact the South ac j euses them with great show 01' jus j tice. of repressing the negro with cold j disdain, wholly foreign to the patri archal spirit of the sometime Con federate States. The race problem is one of exceeding difficulty. It is evi dent on the one hand that the limita tion of the constitutional rights of the colored citizen is a hopeless proposition, while on the other hand it will appear an outrageous anomaly to all sensible people that in liis present condition of undeveloped mentality he should become the rul ing factor in a state possessing hun dreds of thousands of white citizens, among the most enlightened and high spirited of the human race. The Republican Press may rave, but at least sympathetic considéra, tion of the situation will result from Mr. Grady's outspoken definition of it. We hope those who were longing for snow feel happy this morning. The large number of real estate transactions which we publish every Monday, shows how steady is the movement of population and business in the direction of this city. AMUSEMENTS. "Faust up to Bate." The receptiou accorded to the London Gaiety Theatre Company on tile produc tion of the burlesque entitled "Faust up to Date," at the handsome Broadway Theatre, New York, on lust Tuesday evening, indicates a successful engage ment. In ensemble this company is dis tinctly handsomer than the one which was in this country last season, and "Faust up to Date" is a much better bur lesque than either "Esmeralda" or ••Mor.te Cliristo, Jr." The piece is ad mirably put on the stage, and the choruses, dances and tableaux are all well manged. The production, as a whole, takes high rank. Costumes so beautiful, colors so exquisitely blended are seldom seen on tnis side of the At Miss Grace Pedley, a remarkably pretty woman, who pluvs the part of Margaret, spoke the lilies of tier part iu a most fas dilating aud delightful manner. She possesses a sweet voice of considerable range. Mr. E. J. Lonnen (Mephisto pheles), is a well known aud popular comedian on the other side, and, judging from his performance of the other even ing, is quite likely to make a lasting im pression on Americans. He danced ex ceedingly well and rendered his liues with clearness, and his fun making was greatly relished. Charles Danby, who was here last year with the first company, was very droll as Valentine; his efforts were real clever comedy, and were appre ciated by the immense audience preseut. The dancers—a la Lettie Lind and Sylvia Gray, the avant-courriers of their pecu liar style—were four in number, Misses Edith Raynor, Florence Levey, Lillian Price, Maude Wiluiot, and fornimbieuess, flexibility, high kicking, grace aud rapid ity of motion they certainly deserve to take high rank among "saltatorialists." Marie Hubert From it η. Marie Hjibert Frohman's engagement at the Academy of Music opens tonight. There is unusual curiosity to see this young actress, because she is represented as possessing a remarkable originality, as well as a careful artistic training. Her manager says that she is a geuius, and he lias apparently good grounds for this statement—which is not always the case with managers' laudatory utterances. Mrs. Frohman will be supported by an exceptionally strong and well selected company. An attractive double bill will be presented. It includes the brilliant comedy "False Charms" and the beauti ful poetic idyll "King Rene's Daughter." Appropriate scenery, handsome costumes and good music will enhance the beauty of the entertainment. The performance is under the personal supervision of Mr. Gustave Froliman. PERSONAL AND NOTABLE· The family of Lewis D. Cook, one of the man agers of Barnum & Bailey's Ehovv, live iu New ark, Mr. Cook being in London with tbe show. Friday morning, for the second time in a month, the house was robbed while the family was asleep. The first visit was on November 15, when a cloak worrb $350 was stolen. Friday the thieves secured diamonds, jewelry aud wearing apparel worth about $:i,5uQ. The New Jersey Trotting Horse Breeders' Association met at Trenton, Wednesday. It was decided to hold the next trotting meet ing at the Inter-Mate Fair Grounds, which were ottered free of charge. The admission will he free. A committee, consisting of Jacob Kiotz. of Belle Meade; Ira Killbourne, of Newark, and A. G. Sargeant, of Somer ville, was appointed to preseut a request from the association to the incoming Legislature to appropriate φΐ,υυυ or ^,υυυ ιο oe added ! to the premium purse of the association.

St. Peter's j has one of the finest in the Slate, costing nearly ' $9.000 The Baptists have lately placed a good j organ in their bouse of worship; the Church of ! the Redeemer expect to have a fine new instru j ment within a few months to ecst nearly $5.000; the Methodists propose to buy a $4,500 fnstru ! ment very soon, and the South Street Church are ta-king of getting α new organ to cost six or seven thousand dollars. An adjourned meeting of the trustees of the j Monument Association was held in the office of j the Gas Light Company, New Brunswick, last : Thursday. Mr. R. L. Hoagland occupied the chair and Mr. Fred Weigel acted in the capacity of secretary. Among the trustees present were ι Coionei Newell. Robert Carson, J. N. Terrill and John N. Carpendyr. Messrs. H. L. Janeway and V. M. W. Suydam, who had been appointed j to collect the money promised by various per \ sons for the purchase of a lot ou which to build : the proposed monument, rendered a report. ! Their statements were of a satisfactory nature, i as nearly all the money had been secured, amounting to $8,000. and there now remains but about $400 to collect. The sum of $5,800 re ! presents the actual cost of the site, and with the j unprecedented amount of $3,000 collected in one week, it uowjreinains for a little under $400 to be ; raised. This is the largest amount ever collected i iu New Bruuswiek for ono object. ι An event quite unusual in Asbury Park will be j the opening of a winter hotel on Friday, Decem i bertfO.

Miles, now a resident of Atlan tic City, was the officer in charge of Jefferson Davis when he was a prisouer at Fortress Mon roe. Clement M. Clay, Vice President of the Confederacy, and General Fitz Hugh Lee were prisoners there at the same time. Davis was given food on a tin plate with only a spoon to efct it with through fear that he would commit suicide if given a knife or fork. He dashed it to the floor and exclaiming "I am not a dog," grabbed the gun of the sentinel and almost wrested it from him. He was placed in irons. U.> Ulo «Molttnn ΐΜ,ιηΙν ami K(t«- ni. toward his captors. The reference in The Jersey City News to the wife of Anarchist Shevitch as a countess, stirs up the Dispatch to tell the following: interesting story about her: — She is a Princess by right of her husband being a Rnssian Prince. She is in her own right a Polish Duchess of high renown. When she was a mere girl her great beauty dazzled the eyes of all who saw her. She was in love with a noble man. but she had auother intense admirer. Goth could not have her, so she agreed that, like gallant knights, they should fight a duel for her alabaster hand. They fought, and her heart's love fell. She was in honor bound to wed the slayer, so she married him out of pity. He was sick'y, and soon died. Then she was short of cash, and having a beautiful head of golden hair, a winsome face, a willowy figure, and ecstatic grace and fullness of limb, she went on the stage as a dancer. She is now a clever newspaper cor respondent, and lives in happiness with a devoted husband, a monkey, a dog and a parrot at the Park Hotel. Hoboken, where wealth is tabooed as a vulgar tyranny and anarchism is considered the coming millenium. RAILROAD NOTES. The Chambers street bridge, TOO fee long, over the Pennsy lvania Railroad a Trenton has been finished. It cost $64,000 of which the connty and the railroad company each paid one-half. The Morris and Essex Railroad Em ployees' Mutual BenefitJAssociation, dur ing the last three months has paid $3, 210.31 for benefits, and still has $7,221.41 in the treasury. Ground has been offered to the Dela ware. Lackawanna and Western Railroad for the erection of a new depot on the Bloomfield branch between Park and .Springdale avenues. Superintendent Reasoner is in conference with President Slnnn nvor tli « nr>r>onfii nno nf tVit» nffoi· Sixty feet more will be added to the length of the Hoboken passenger train sheds in the spring, and the old office building will be torn down. The Central Railroad's sidings at Junc tion and at Clinton are filled with coal, the company being unable to have it un loaded at Elizabethport and Port John son. A railroad meeting was held at Mend ham, .Morris county, last week, and the mauy promises of the ϋ., Ij. & W. was thrown overboard. The people decided to cast their lot with ex-Congressman Pidcock's branch of the Jersey Central— the Rockaway Valley road. It is stated that the new ferryboat Ber gen, on the Hoboken line, while a distinct success in economy as well as in comfort to her passengers, has taught engineers a lesson in the characteristics of triple-ex pansion engines for which they were not prepared. The third cylinder, it appears, is of no use in so short a run as that from Barclay street to Hoboken, for it does not get warmed up to an efficient working heat after leaving a slip until it has reached the other slip, and must be cooled off by the shutting off of the steam. Two new ferryboats, having propellers atench end, as the Bergen has, but with modified engines, will be built next year by the company. The workshops of the old Camden and Amboy Railroad at Bordentowu, N. J., which were abandoned when the Penn sylvania Railroad absorbed the Camden aud Amboy nearly twenty years ago, are about to be reopened. The original plant \vas built in 1831. There are nine brick buildings. A. H. King, of New York, has been using one ot the buildings for a couple of years as a store house. He has leased the whole property for twenty years, and in the spring he will have the necessary repairs made and machinery put in for building locomotives aud cars. It is said that he intends principally to continue ou a big scale his particular business of buying up. repairing and sell ing second-hand rolling stock. There is a good deal of profit in this business, and .Mr. King has few competitors. The KiUR Locomotive and Car Works is the name of the new concern, and it has a capital stock of $1,000,000. It will give employ ment to 500 or 000 men. John Heddina, who was recently superintendent at the Rogers locomotive Works in Patereon, » ml for a lomr t ime Master Mechanic of the New Jersey Railroad and Transporta tion Company, will have charge of the works. Knginecrs In the ernuloy of the Dela ware, Lackawanna & Western have re cently surveyed three routes for a rail way between Caldwell and a point on the Boonton branch. The Central Railroad Company has commenced to erect a new ferry slip at Pier H on the New York side. Contractor Kelly, of Jersey City, has begun work on one of the new tunnels to be built under the canal at Greenwood avenue, Trenton. Two new tuunels are to be built, one north and the other south of the nresent tunnel. The north tuunel is the one.on which work is to be begun. Excavations will be made and the work forwarded as rapidly as possible during the next two weeks. Then navieation in the canal will close, and it is intended to have the work flnished By spring. When the new tunnels are completeu the two new tracks through the city will be built, which will about finish the four track system of the Pennsylvania Com pany between Philadelphia and New York. It is rumored that the N. Y.. S. & W. R. R. Co. intend to build a now line to shorten the run of their coal trains The new line, as the survey runs now, leaves Butler and runs across the mountain, at the point known as the Gap, and from there in a direct line to Pat ergon, thus saving the long run through Bergen county. Edwards' Men in the Union. It is currently reported that Eilwarils" the Sixth street livery man, has at last Sermitted his men to join the Coach irivers Association. ; Λ lUmrS COURTESY. I HE LOUES HIS LIBERTY TO S.4.V1 A. 11'OM A X. A Story Which Shows tliat Total De· pravlty Is Not So Common as Οτιι Miyht Think—Prettv Chinese Girl·. How stVnngely the good and bad inter ' mingle in the breast of man is strikinglj shown by the train of circumstances at tending the recapture of Smith, the train robber, who Is now awaiting trial in tho county jail. In March last he, iu company with three others, robbed the eastern bound Atlantic and Pacific express a! Canyon Diablo, and a month afterward, after one of the longest chases on record, the party was captured by Sheriff O'Neii and posse in Utah. AVhile on the return trip to Arizona Smith effected his escape by jumping from a car window on the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe while the train was rapidly descending the Raton Mountains in New Mexico. He at once struck out for Texas, taking horses wherever the opportunity present ed and riding them as lone as they were able to carry him. Ou the afternoon of the ninth day, while in the Panhandle, near Veruon. Smith discovered η wo(n«n aimlessly wandering over the prairie, and recognizing the fact that she must be lost or iu trouole, he rode up and accosted iter. She informed him that she had been lost two days, during which time she had gone without food. Knowim: that iu her emaciated condition she could not possi bly survive much longer without assist ance, Smith, the escaped train robber, fleeing though he was to escape trial fora crime the penalty of which was death, and still carrying on each lea his broken shackles, bethought him of a windmill he had passed some eight miles back, and putting the woman on his horse, conduct ed her to it. Ile lett her, and riding along the wire fence that enclosed the windmill for live or six miles, until he discovered the camp of the men employed to keep it in repair, he informed them of the woman's condi tion. They at once saddled, and, although the night was nearly gone, started at once for the windmill, and found the woman— a young school teacher—weak, but still alive, and at once brought her to a place where she was cared for. At daybreak the Sheiff and posse in pursuit of Smith met the same men, and, Hulling from their account and description iu wulch direc tion the fugitive had gone, pursued him. Before high noon they had overtaken him. and Smith, the train robber, who, less than twenty-four hours before, hau turned from his way to succor an unfor tunate woman, was shot from his saddle while resisting au arrest which he might have prevented by avoiding the delay and observation so detailed. The story is good enough to have a moral, but doubt less Smith, who is now in the couutv jail awaiting trial for his life on account of it, fails to discover it.—Pregcott (Ark.) Journal. Pretty Chinese Girls. Chinese girls have, not infrequently, pleasing faces; but this applies particu larly says a writer in the Quiver, to those of the middle aud upper classes. The younger children wear their luxuriant raven tresses twisted into a heavy pipit hanging down behind, secured with many yards of scarlet cord. Up to the time of marriage, girls part their hair smoothly at the forehead, as a sign of their single estate; but when the wed ding day arrives, the young bride's hair is drawn back, and all the short hairs are pulled out by tweezers, with the idea of making her forehead appear broad and high. With regard to dress, a Chinese girl is little troubled by any considera tion of fashion. There is a slight differ ence. scarcely apparent to Western eyes, in the cut of the costumes of the girls and women of different provinces; but, speak ing generally, the same attire is worn by the aged grand-dame aud her year old grand-daughter, by the man darin's child aud the daughter of a poor coolie. Their clothing dif fers, not in shape, but in the material of which the garments are composed aud the manner in which they are ornament ed. With reference to this question of dress, a well-known American mission ary iadv, who has lived and worked many years in China, writes;—-'-In one thing the Chinese woman is exceptionally blessed—she has inherited from former generations a style of dress at once mod est, economical ana becoming. it takes but eight yards of yard-wide cloth for a complete suit of winter garments, and there is no waste in cutting nor In un necessary appendages. Its truest econ omy, however, is in that saving of mental worry which comes from always cuitiug by the same pattern ana the obviation of all need of fitting. It allows unrestricted play to every muscle, is of the same thick ness over the whole body, is not in the way when at work, and it has little weight, while it has all the needful warmth." Probably some American girl reader may hold different opiuions upon this subject, and thiuk there are two sides to this, as to most other matters. AVhy Mrs. Wallace Shut the Door. In patriotism Mrs. Lew Wallace and her husband stand shoulder to shoulder, differing only in his wearing the straps. She had need of all her courage in some of their hair grizzling experiences in New Mexico, when her husban^ was Governor there. They found border Vufflauism in all its pristine glory, and General Wal lace set about breaking uu the business. One of a gang who boasted that he had killed a man for every year he had lived (ne was then twenty-one) pledged his word and honor as a desperado that he would track Wallace till he had shot him. With so much at stake they played very earnestly, and Ben Hur "wore bis beaver up" and pistol cocked for him. Finally he took lodging at the same hotel, and at night General Wallace closed the door of his room. His wife, speaking of the heat, opened it and he quietly said, "It's best not to have it open is in the house watching his chance to shoot me." We can fancy the alacrity with which aha then shut the door and that t he prob ably corked the keyhole, as Miss Peck sniff did the wine bottle, with a curl paper. With ritle at hand and pistol mi ller his pillow, Governor Wallace lay down and slept, better than his wife did, you may besure.—Ladles' Hume Journal. What Women Should Wear Greek Gowna. Certain women should wear on all pos sible occasions Greek gowns—women of statuesque build and classical inuld; it is themselves in tailor madewraps aud Ked tera suits; but there are others who would look like Titauia in lioadicea's armor If they dared to depart from pre vailing precepts, says a writer in Dress. No woman should ask her dressmaker what she ought to wear. From her she may seek ideas, but they should be modi lied by seif to individual needs. If one does not know what her individual re quirements are, let her hunt the art gal leries, study there the nearest approach to personal idiosyncrasies the portraits re veal and evolve suggestions. Λ Shrewd Maine Dressmaker. One shrewd Maine dressmaker has hit upon a lucky idea, and is thriving on it. Wheu ladies coma to her with the goods to make up an ordinary worsted dress, she asks:—"Will you havo it made to feel like silk or wool?" The owner of the dress naturally inquires into the mean ing of the question. "It is «11 in the lining. 1 can give you a lining that will rustle like silt aud that will make you think whenever you touch it that it is silk, aud it will only cost you thirty ceuts a yard." The fancy of the patron is caught by the alluring prospect of having her woollen dress rustle Vike silk, and she leaves an order for this cloud with a silver liuiug. Thought It tVas η Lady's House.

The hostess who gained that day the ad miring comments of all New York wa the one who received perfect strangers as if they were her best friends and made them her friends by that gracious recep tion. She know how awkwardly they would teel when they found out their mistake: she did all she could to prevent their feeling awkward while with her. The other lady, less well bred, said to a person who had come into her house under a mistake. '"I think you have got into the wrong house." "Yes, madame, I have," said he, "I thought before I entered it that this was a lady's house." It was a terrible revenge, but, under the circumstances an entirely justifiable one.
