This Policy of Indifference Believed to be Inspired by Cleveland's Independ ent Followers. Republican Senators Fail to Agree In the Matter of Opposition to Ap pointments. Dakota to Receive Attention by the Senate This Week — Interstate Commerce. Concress and the President. Special to the Globe. Washington, Jan. 17. — The New York World publishes an attack on the president and bis independence of congress, of which the following is an extract: The Demo crats in congress are in a singular position. They have a handsome working majority iu the house of representatives. The Re publican majority against them in the sen ate is small. The president is a Democrat, yet there is so little accord or sympathy be tween the Democratic representation in congress and the executive that legislation which finds favor at the capitol is likely to be very different from that suggested from the White house. If the Democratic house succeeds in passing some measures through the senate it will be in as much danger of encountering an executive veto as when it had to be submitted for approval ft) a Republican president. Not that there is any breach between the president and congress, not that the Democratic repre sentatives are hostile to Mr. Cleveland. Their relations are friendly. Such con gressmen as visit (he White house when they desire to pluck a feather from the fat goose of ollicial patronage are courteously received, whether their mission is success ful or a failure. But tho president has sep arated himself from the sympathy of con gress. Alarmed by the '•pitch*' theory of the Mugwumps, that "a president can't touch a congressman without being defiled," Air. Cleveland has adopted the doctrine that the powers of the executive and legis lative branches of the government should. forever and in all things, be kept separate and apart The founders of the republic never contemplated a SEPARATION ROB ISOLATION*. of the executive and legislative branches of the government, as the Mugwump theory has forced upon the president. But Mug wumpism is a law unto itself. In this In stance it has opened a Chasm between the white house and the capitol. Mr. Cleve land never asks advice from anybody. He deems his duty done when he formally sug gests laws which occur to him as expedient. He is under the conscientious conviction that it would be an offense to urge upon congressmen what he considers a wise policy. He would regard himself false to the peculiar theory of reform which he has adopted if he should labor with congress men to prevent them from passing inex pedient laws and to induce them to pass Rood laws. Democracy in congress is left to itself. It has the admin istration, but the policy of the ad ministration is a personal and not a party policy, is it not natural, under such circumstances, that the recommendations 5 ? . the president should fall on barren ; und? Can any great measure be carried i icessfully through except by the united r • £ngth of party, legislative and executive nbined? i venture the prediction that 3 leading recommendations made by the president will be adopted by congress, and mat such legislation as he might oppose is likely to find favor with the house. Not, I repeat, because of any antagonism; but for the reason that the executive has dropped out of congressional business, and because the majority of the house, composed of ac tive and loyal party men, who might have been easily controlled by a sympathetic president, is essentially cold and indifferent to an independent president. at LOGGERHEADS. Differences of Opinion Anion? Be* publicans on Confirmations. Special to the Globe. Washington, Jan. 17. — That there is a sharp difference of opinion among Repub lican senators in the policy to be followed regarding the president's nominations, hap penings in and out of the executive session have shown. Nevertheless it has not been easy to draw a clear line of distinc tion. There are some of the senators, like Gen. Logan, who believe that Republicans have no business holding office under a Democratic administration, yet who propose to scrutinize very sharply all the appoint ments of Democrats. Other senators, who have a very lively sense of favors past and prospective, would let all the nominations go unchallenged. A considerable element among the Republicans, without reference to Individual cases, takes the position that the senate is bound to recognize the fact that a Democratic president is in the white house, and that public sentiment will not support Anything which looks like factious inter ference with his 'prerogatives. These sena tors have generally urged a conservative Bourse. Senator Mitchell of Oregon, who was been put in this category, in speaking of the subject to-day said: There are some senators who think it their business to keep Republicans in office. Now, 1 must say frankly that I don't sympathize with this view, though I am as thorough going a Republican as any of my colleagues. I believe that in passing on nominations the filiate should remember the president is a Democrat, and we have a Democratic admin istration. I would not put any OBSTACLES IN THE WAV Of confirming officials who are in harmony with the dominant party, where the manner of their appointment is legitimate. If a Re publican Is removed to give place to a Demo crat and there is nothing urged against the lattcr's fitness for the position to which he is nominated, 1 believe in confirming him. But where charges have been made against an official and he is removed under a cloud. I think it proper that he be afforded an oppor tunity to meet those charges, and to this end the senate should have before it the papers in the case. Of its right to demand such papers I have no doubt. They are treated confidentially in executive session, just like other matters pertaining to confirmations. Without venturing to make any predictions, my own belief is that when the senate gets to the point and calls on the executive directly for such papers they will, if there are any, be forthcoming. It is the documents which, in my judgment, should be asked for, and not the president's reasons. After all, this is not so far from the posi tion of the more radical senators. It is practically the ground taken at the caucus Friday, when the decision was made that the president should be called on for the papers when the senate thought their pro duction desirable. The end sought is pimply to force the president to define his attitude. THE CONGRESSIONAL. OUTLOOK. Dakota to Receive Attention This Week— Other matter*. Washington, Jan. 17.— The past week having been devoted by the senate largely to speech-making and executive business, the calendar remains almost as it was at the beginning of the week with respect t to measures of general legislation. The judicial salary bill is the unfinished busi ness. The Dakota bill, the bankruptcy bill and the electoral count bill are to be brought forward for debate and action as soon as possible, and an understanding will probably be reached on Monday or Tuesday by the senators respectively in charge of these measures as to the order in which they shall be taken up. Senator Harrison's resolution looking to an inquiry into certain state ments of the commissioner of nen&lons re garding the official acts of his predecessors, and .Senator Voorhees' substitute for It are still pending. Senator Eustis has given notice of his intention to deliver a speech : on Tuesday upon his resolution to pay in silver the bonds that have been called for redemption on the 1st of February. This resolution, with Mr. Bed substitute for it is still in the finance committee, with no : probability of receiving early action. . IN THE HOUSE to-morrow, after the introduction of bills, the committees will be called for motions to pass measures, one from each committee, under a suspension of the rules. A two thirds vote is requisite in every Instance. Tin: committee on military affairs will i avail itself of this opportunity to bring be fore the senate a bill appropriating §100.000 to purchase the old produce exchange build ing in New York city for army purposes. Among the more important measures that are likely to be discussed in committee and reported" to the house this week are the bills known as the Mcpherson bill in the last congress, authorizing national banks to in crease their circulating notes to the full amount of their securities in bonds; the bill authorizing the comptroller of the currency to sanction changes of name and increasing the capital stock by national banks, the Oklahoma bills, Mr. Hatch's bill to create a department of agri culture, and Mr. Matson's bill to increase the pensions of widows. The Boutelle res olution relative to the Norfolk navy yard will be further considered by the committee on naval affairs tomorrow or Tuesday. The author of the resolution has little doubt that it will be reported to the house Wednesday. As it is a privileged resolu tion, immediate action can be demanded. If the tone of the discussion of the measure j in the committee can be taken as an Indi cation of the discussion to follow in the , house, that body will find that it will rush j upon it a spirited political debate, ; > Oil Til W ESTKUg IF ATE K WAYS. Action to be Taken by Their Repre sentatives This Week. Special to the Globe. Washington, Jan. 17. — The men who are moving in behalf of large appropria tions for the Improvement of the internal navigation of the country are beginning to arrive here, and meetings will be held this week to express their views and impress them upon congress. Among the arrivals are members of the executive committees appointed by the convention held at New Orleans, Kansas City and St Paul during the last six mouths in the interests of the improvement of means of commercial in tercourse in the South, the West and the Northwest. It is exacted that in ail about 100 men will Ml present at the conference to be held at noon to-morrow. (apt. Clarke, who was secretary of the convention at St. Paul, says they are dissatisfied with the SI 1,000. 000 limit which the house committee on rivers and harbors proposes to put upon its appropriations for the next fiscal year. They insist that $25. 000.000 would not be a dollar too much to meet the necessity for better water transportation. To-morrow night the congressional delegations from Illinois and Iowa will hold a conference to map out a plan of the campaign that is to be fought in the interest of the Hennepin canal. Congressman Murphy of Iowa is earnest and enthusiastic as he was when he first came to congress to join in the fight for the Hennepin canal. He says as Iowa and Illinois pay so large a share of the in ternal taxes of the country, and as Iowa has received nothing for improvement of rivers or harbors, these two states have a right to insist that they shall be beard In respect to the Hennepin. He has been looking into the war department reports, and finds that when the first appropriation was made for the St Mary's canal, about thirty years ago. the tonnage that passed through in a year amounted to 100,000. and that it has increased to 3.000.000 tons in 18S5, which is equal to 150,000,000 bushels of grain. " fi<«« Interstate Commerce. Washington, Jan. 17. — Senator Cul- Iom's select committee on interstate rail road transportation will probably report to the senate to-morrow or Tuesday an origi nal interstate commerce bill, and at the same time submit an exhaustive report The committee, which spent a good part of the summer in investigations, has been holding daily sessions since the assembling of congress. In addition to the two or three volumes of oral testimony, which the committee has taken in its pursuit of in formation on the subject an appendix con taining a number of interesting papers from leading authorities has been printed for the use of the committee, and will be made public with the report.

C, Jan. 17.— The sensa tion created by the alleged divine call of the Wake county youth. John B. Sturdevant to preach the gospel increases, and there are hundreds of believers in the call. Thursday night two prominent men of Raleigh, one the principal of a Sunday school and the other for years a teacher in a state institution for the deaf, dumb and blind, went to Auburn to see Sturdevant and hear him preach. As many persons as could get in the house were present Lying on the bed, with eyes wide open, was the boy. He spoke for an hour and a quarter, using vigorous and graceful language^ He stated he was addressing an audience of 800 people. His voice could be heard a great distance. He was stricken with blindness. Wednesday, as he alleged God had told him he would be. At 5 o'clock vesterday. Just at the time lie named, his sight was re stored. The teacher from the deaf, dumb and blind institute and physicians of the neighborhood say the boy was certainly totally blind during the period from Wednesday at 10 a. m. to yesterday after noon at 5, and in their presence and that of about 150 persons SIGHT WAS BESTOBED. All day yesterday the bov was led about the house. Just before 5 o'clock he took a position in .front of the fire in a large room. Punctually at 5 the boy raised his head, lowered it. raised it again and cried aloud, "I can see." The people were greatly ex cited. He walked through the house shak ing hands with nearly all those present The boy Is 10 years of age and weighs 140 pounds, and is very strong. Three ■ years ago he had an affection caused by spinal disease. His father states that one night while the boy was in a violent lit four strong men were unable to hold him. . He broke away from them and went to the j organ and played three hymns in excellent i style, though before he was unable to do so. i As he played the last hymn he made a pro | fession of religion, and then calmly lay down. Since that time he has never had ! another attack, and has been in excellent j health. The boy says that if the divine origin of his blindness and recovery of sight is not believed by the people other and even more convincing signs will be afforded. Thrown Out of Work. Pbovtncetown.

Milton Weston Tells the Mary at His Alleged (rime. Chicago. Jan. 17. — Mr. Milton Weston, who stands convicted in Allegheny county, Penn., as accessory to murder, returned to Chicago yesterday to close up some business affairs prior to returning to Pittsburg to re ceive his sentence of four years in River side penitentiary. Mr. Weston's reputa tion here has been beyond reproacli, both as a business man and socially, lie has a mother, wife, children and brothers resid ing in this city, all of whom are highly es teemed. "You are shaking hands witn a convict," said Mr. Weston to a reporter. "I am able to bear ad this, bat when my sons and daughter place their arms around my neck and cling to me and weep. shedding tears that well up from the heart. It unmans me. For fort v three years I have lived hero and done busi ness, and no man can place a black mark against my character anywhere I have al ways endeavored to do justice by my fellow men, and God knows that in all the years of my prosperity 1 never allowed a fellow-being to suffer it 1 knew it and I could relievo suf fering. Yet hero I am convicted of a crime which I NEVER COMMITTED. This thing has cost me $260,000 besides $13, 000 for lawyers' fees, over £100.000; about all the fortune 1 bad. Even mv wife bas mort gaged her farm and pledged diamonds to help me out of this trouble, but 1 am still the vic tim of a cruel conspiracy. The story never has been told. It was for me to buy land aud discover the value of natural gas as an il luminator and Its utility for fuel, when I was attacked, robbed and cast Into prison. I se cured 1,030 acres of laud in Westmoreland county. I purchased the tract from Hillerv J. Brunot, brother of Felix llrunot. the Quaker Indian commissioner. I paid 120.000 to Brunot for the tract and $1,000 to remove a cloud frou the title after 1 made the purcbaw. I received a deed from Brunot, wherein be agreed to give me good and sufficient . title free and clear of all incumbrance for torty four leases which were contained In the 1,050 acres. I made I ho llrst payment, which is acknowledged and receipted for in my deed, and WHICH IS ON RECORD. Before the second payment came duo I was notified by four owners of the best leases that Brunot did not own them at all. I im mediately took steps to possess myself ot these leases, which I succeeded in doing for ninety-nine years, audi placed them on re cord at Greensburg. The leases conveyed to me by Brunot having lapse! by their own conditions, every lease or renewal lease was placed upon record by myself. lb-gar of then facts mid in violation of lie salo to me. Mr. Brunot sold the same to another gas company, all my titles being then on record. Ho sold to Pew, Em erson & Co.. limited, a concern in which be was a stockholder, ami It, through him or his agents, attempted to dispossess me. At that time myself and wife were living on the land, and for several days and nights before my wife had boon there almost alone, having but one lady companion in the bouse. Hay maker, who was unfortunately killed, was the agent of Brunot and bis corporation, and be bad 150 men under him, who were armed with pick handles and revolvers, and who came upon us while we were IN PEACEFUL POSSESSION to try to dispossess us. Who would not have resisted to defend bis own? In the melee that ensued Haymaker was killed, and while that killing was charged upon my foreman, the fact i- that ho was killed by one of his own men from a shot which was intended for my foreman. I was living on the property with my wile, and she was 600 feet from where the fight occurred and witnessed the entire transaction, but she was not a competent witness for her husband, but why should I detail further? I shall go back to Pittsburg aud face my sentence, and serve it if neces sary, feeling that I am an innocent man. in nocent before my God and the world. My reputation cannot be blackened by such cruel and infamous persecutions." Mr. Weston's friends here and In the East will make a strong effort to secure his pardon in case he is sent to the peniten tiary'. A WIFE FOli FIVE CENTS. One Ohio Ulan Sells Another His Spouse for a Nominal Sum. Akron, O.. Jan. Alfred M. Webb of liornellsville, N. Y., came here last night and secured warrants for the arrest of James Bott. an Akron saloonkeeper who came here last August, and a woman passing as Bott's wife, charging them with .adulters'. Webb says he was married to the woman eighteen years, and had lived with her until last summer, when she eloped with Bott. It was brought out by the ar rest that Bott has another woman living with him as his wife, whom he claims be . bought from Charles Stratton a few weeks ago for 5 cents. In proof of the transaction, he exhibited a crumpled piece of paper on which Stratton for the consideration of 5 cents makes over to the latter bis (Stratum's) wife. The wife, it appeared, was a willing tarty to the transaction, and has ever since lived at the Bott house, and so far as can be learned dwelt in harmony with the other alleged wife. Soon after making out the bill of sale Stratton got into a revolver fight with a youug Akronite. and a few days afterward disappeared. The woman, Strat ton. sold to Bott came to Akron with him a year ago. She once lived in Indianapolis and had seen better days before she joined her fortunes with that of Stratton. After she and Stratton had spent their money here they were in desperate straits and both eagerly availed themselves of Bott's banter ing offer to buy the wife. The trial of the Botte - will come off in the police court to morrow. ;V" "-•' GAMBLING IN NEW OBLGASS. The Mayor Expresses Himself For* cibly on His Prerogatives. Special to the Globe. New Orleans, La., Jan. 17.— this city there is no law against gambling, at least none that can be enforced. The state constitution adopted in 1879 says: * 'Gamb ling is declared to be a vice, and the general assembly shall enact laws for its sup- pression." Tbe several assemblies that have met since have done nothing of the kind. The leading gamblers, however, to avoid being barrassed and blackmailed, sent word to the mayor some years ago that they were willing to contribute a certain sum every month to go to some worthy charity. Then Mayor Shakespeare accepted the trust and with the fund so received erected and supported until now an alms house, which provided for the city's worthy desti tutes. At the begin ing of the new year, the present mayor. Guillicotte, notified the gamblers to pay their tribute to him. and be now collects the gambler's fund, estimated j at S2.500 or S3.000 m month. Interviewed on the subject the mayor declared he did not intend to surrender any more of his pre rogatives as mayor, considering himself as honest as anybody else, and that if he, as chief executive officer, does not collect and use this fund no one else shalL He said he should invest it for the best interest of the city. It is given out on the quiet that the fund is rendered a necessity on account of the proposed visit here at an early day of the mayors and aldermen of Chicago, Philadelphia and some other Northern cities. KENTUCKY JUSTICE. A Characteristic loan Kerne, Brist ling With Firearms. Special to the Globe. Cincinnati, O.. Jan. 17. Ludlow, Ky., the town opposite the lower end of Cincin nati, was in a fearful state of excitement yesterday. The stores were shut up be cause of the danger ot riot, and scores of men, heavily armed, glared at each other from opposite street corners. It was all on account of the love of .lames O'Brien, a railroad engineer, and pretty Lizzie Brophy of Cincinnati. More than a year ago he had bet raved her under promise of mar riage, and when suit for seduction was in stituted he managed to get work on a road running out of Chattanooga to avoid a requisition from Ohio to Kentucky. Finally a Cincinnati officer found out that O'Brien made occasional trips extending into Kentucky, and caught him on Friday and started home with him. Arriving at Ludlow Friday night a great crowd of O'Brien's friends among the railroad em ployes' surrounded the car. They had an officer with a writ of habeas corpus and se cured O'Brien. The case was to bo heard at Ludlow yesterday, and the opposing ■ parties were the Brophy's and their friends, largely from this side of the river. who swear that either a marriage, the peniten tiary or death shall be the expiation of O'Brien's treachery, and O'Brien's friends, who are determined be shall not be taken outside Kentucky. It required the utmost exercise of discretion on the part of the court and the officers to prevent a collision, in which one hasty shot would have been the signal for a bloody melee and possibly a half dozen or more deaths. The case was not decided yesterday, but will come up for decision on M mday in Covington, where precautions will be taken against any trouble. AT A PISTOL'S POINT. A Heartless Chiragoan Drives His Wile From His Home. Special to tbe Globe. Cmc a Jan. 17. — Four years ago, Mary Deering, who lived with her mother and sister at 111 Farqner street married William J. Gudison, the chief clerk of the Western Union Telegraph company. Miss Deering was only 14 years of age at the time of her marriage. Yesterday she told the police officers at the Twelfth street sta tion a story of ber married life that enlisted their fullest sympathy. Mr. Gudison, she said, lost bis place three months ago, and since then has been more than cruel to his young wife. New Year's day she buried her little girl, a year and a half old, and two da later another baby was born. The father, instead of being pleased with his child and sympathizing with the mother, she says, came home about a week ago in a state of intoxication, and, after abusing his wife, as was his wont to do, she alleges he drove her out of the house at the point of a pistol. With her four-days-old baby in her arms she sought the protection of her mother and sister, and has since lived there. Four days ago the furniture at their former home, 43 Newbury avenue, was taken out and sold for rent While Mrs. Gudison and her sister were out trying to prevent this. Gudison, his wife says, called at the house and took away, by force, their little sou, 3 years of age, and placed him in charge of his mother, who lives on Folk street The alleged abduction of her little boy was more than she could bear, and yesterday th.* wife swore out a warrant before Justice Welch against Gudison, and he was ar rested, immediately being bailed out Died a Violent Death. Special to the Globe. Dayton, O.. Jan. 17. — At an early hour this morning the body of an inmate of the Soldiers' home was found in one of the dives hi the West end. The victim was Henry B. Talbott late of Company F, Fifth Pennsylvania regiment He went to the saloon of Rocky Shaeffer on on King street and when it was time to close the saloon asked to be permitted to sleep there during the night His request was granted, and he was sboWn to a bed up stairs. About 4 o'clock this morning Talbott was found in one of the lower rooms, vith a pool of blood on the floor. His skull was fractured and deeply indented. The Schaeifcr family claim that during the night the man arose and in the darkness fell over a banister down a steep flight of stairs. An autopsy was ordered by the coroner, which was made this evening by Dr. Pat ton of the Soldiers' home. It developed that the man died from violence, but how or by whom the blow causing the fracture of the skull was inflicted be could not say. The facts surrounding the death are very mysterious, and the indications are that the man was murdered. A Saloonkeeper's Hash Act* Special to the Globe. Wabash, Ind., Jan. Peter Pas chong is a saloonkeeper doing business at Laketon, this county. Paschong has a great aversion to popular religious doc trines, and especially those which inculcate temperance principles, snd when revival services began in the Methodist church at Laketon he expressed his opinion of the means of grace freely and forcibly. Learning that bis wife was a constant attendant, he watched a few evenings since, saw her start to church, and following her entered while the minister was praying, grasped her sav agely by the shoulder, dragged her out of tbe building, pausing at the door only long enough to execrate the pastor and his flock in language most outrageous. Feeling against the fellow runs high in Laketon, and be will probably be compelled to leave the town. An Outbreak expected. Mt. Pleasant, Pa., Jan. 17.— Serious trouble and perhaps bloodshed is expected at the Standard and Moore wood coke works to-morrow.

Dr. Talmage Gives Young Women Prepar ing for Marriage Some Very Timely Advice, Putting in a Good Word for .the Young Men Already Wedded to Morality and Christianity. Mr. Beecher Discourses Upon the Soul Llle as Distinguished. From the Bodily Lite. The Spiritual Light and Life of the World Bred and Developed by God. Dr. Talmage's Sermon. Special to the Globe. Bf.ookly.v, N. V., Jan. 17.— Dr. Tal mage's sermon this morning was on The Choice of a Husband, taking as his text Ruth, I.. 9: "The Lord grant you that ye may find rest, each of you in the house of her husband." lie said: I applaud the celibacy of a multitude of women, who, rather than make unfit selection, have made none at alL It has not been a lack of opportunity for marital con tract on their part, but their own culture and refinement and their exalted idea as to what a husband ought to be, have caused their declinature. They have seen" so many women marry imbeciles or ruffians, or incipient sots, or life- time incapable*, or magnificent nothings, or men who before marriage were angelic and afterward dia bolic, that they have been alarmed and stood back. They saw M many boats go into the maelstrom that they steered Into other waters. Better for a woman to live alone, though she live a thousand . years, than to be annexed to one of these mascu line failures with which society is surfeited. The patron saint of almost every family circle is some such unmarried woman, and among all the families of cousins she moves around, and her coming In each house is the morning, and her going is the night. Deliberate before you rush out of the single state into another, unless you are sure of betterment. Deliberate and pray. Pray and deliberate. As I showed you in ray former sermon, a man ought to supplicate DIVINE GUIDANCE in such crisis; how much BOM Important that you solicit it! It is easier for a nun to find an appropriate wife than for a woman to find a good husband. This is a matter of arithmetic, as 1 showed in a former dis course. Statistics show that in Mass.i chusetts and New York states women have a majority of hundreds of thousands. Why this Is, we leave others to surmise. It would seem that woman i* a favorite with the Lord, and that therefore he has made more of that kind. From the order of the creation in Paradise, it is evident that woman Is an improved edition of man. But whatever be the reason tor it. the fact is certain that she who selects a husband has a smaller number of peoplo to select from than he who selects a wife. There fore a woman ought to be especially careful in her choice of lifetime companionship. >he can not afford to make a mistake. If a man err in his selection, be can spend his evenings at the club ami dull his sensibil ities by tobacco smoke, but woman has no club-room for refuge, and would find it difficult to habituate herself to cigars. If a woman make a bad job of marital selection, the probability is that nothing but a funeral can relieve it. Divorce cases in court may interest the public, but the love letters of a married couple are poor reading except for those who write them. Pray God that you be delivered from irrevocable mistake! Avoid AFFIANCE WITH A DESFISER of the Christian religion, whatever else he may or may not have. 1 do not say he must needs be a religious man, for Pan! says the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife; but marriage with a man who hates the Christian religion will insure you a life of wretchedness, lie will caricature your habit of kneeling in prayer. Ho will speak depreciatingly of Christ. He will wound all the most sacred feelings of your soul. He will put your home under the anathema of the Lord (iod Almighty. In addition to the anguish with which he will fill your life, there is great danger that he will despoil your hope of heaven, and make your marriage relation an infinite and eternal disaster. If you have made such engagement, your first duty is to break It. My word may come just in time to save your soul. Further, do not unite in mar riage with a man of bad habits in the idea of reforming him. If now, under the re straint of your present acquaintance, he will not give up his bad habits, after he has won the prize you cannot expect him to do so. You might as well plant a violet in the face of a northeast storm, with the id- a of appeasing it. You might as well run a schooner along side of a burning ship with the idea of sav ing the ship. The consequence will be schooner and ship will be destroyed to gether. The almshouse could tell the story of a bundled women who married men to reform them. If by -5 years of age a man has been GRAPPLED BY INTOXICANTS, he is under such headway that your at tempt to stop him would be very much like running up tie- track with a wheelbarrow to stop a Hudson Kiver express train. What you call an inebriate now-a-days is not a victim to wine or whisky, but to log wood and .strychnine and mix vomica. All these poisons have kindled their fires in his tongue and brain, and all the tears of a wife weeping cannot extinguish the flames. In stead of marrying a man to reform him. let him reform first and then give him time to see whether the reform Is to be permanent. Let him understand that if he cannot do without his bad habits for two years he must do without you forever. Avoid all proposed alliances through newspaper ad vertisements. Many women, just for fun, have answered such advertisements, and have been led on from step to step to catastrophe infinite. All men who write such advertisements are vil lains and lepers — all. without a single ex ception. All! All! Do you answer them ■ just for fun? I will tell you a safer and i healthier fun. Thrust your hand through ' the cage at a menagerie, and stroke the j back of a cobra from the East Indies. Put ' your head in the mouth of a Nuniidian lion to see If he will bite. Take a glassful of paris green mixed with some delightful hen bane. These are safer and healthier fun ; than answering newspaper advertisements for a wife. My advice is, marry a man who is a fortune in himself. nouses, lands and large inheritance are well enough, but the wheel of fortune turns so rapidly that through some investment ail these in a few years may be gone. There are some things, however, that are a per petual fortune — good manners, geniality of soul, kindness, intelligence, sympathy, courage, perseverance. Industry and whole heartedness. Marry such a one and you • have married a fortune, whether he have an • income of $50,000 a year or an income of ! 8500. A bank is secure according to its ; capital stock, and not to be judged by the i deposits for a day or a week. A man is j rich according to his sterling qualities, and I not according to the vacillation of circum ' stances, which may leave him with a large I amount of resources to-day and withdraw ! them to-morrow. If a man is worth noth ' ing but money he Is poor indeed. If a man I have upright character he is rich. Prop i erty may come and go. he Is independent of , the markets. Nothing can buy him out nothing can sell him out lie may have j more money one year than another, but his better fortunes never vacillate. I imagine 1 the hour for which you pledged your throtb . has arrived. There is much merry-making among your young friends, but there is an I undertone of sadness in all the house. Your l choice may have been the gladdest and the best, and the joy of the whole round of rel- t atives, but when a young eaglet Is about to j leave the old nest and is preparing to put i out into the sunshine anil storm for Itself, it feels its wings tremble somewhat So she has a good cry before leaving home, and at the marriage FATHER AND MOTHER always cry or feel like it If you think it is easy to give up a daughter in marriage, though It be with brightest prospects, you will think differently when the day comes. To have all along watched her trom infancy to girlhood, and from girlhood to woman hood, studious of her welfare, her slightest Illness an anxiety, and her presence in your home an ever increasing joy, and then have her go away to some other home aye, all the redolence of orange blossoms, and all the chime of marriage bells, and all the roll ing of wedding inarch in full diapason, and all the hilarious congratulations of your friends, cannot make you forget that you are suffering a loss irreparable. But you know it is all right, and you have a remem brance of an embarkation just like it twenty-five or thirty years ago, in which you were one of the par ties, and, suppressing as far as pos sible your sadness, you say: "Goodbye." I hope that you, the departing daughter, will not forget to write often home; for whatever betide vou, the old folks will never lose their interest in your welfare. Make visits to them| also, as often and stay as long as you can. tor there will be changes at the old place after a while. Every time you go, you will find more gray hairs on father's head, and more wrinkles on moth er's brow, and after a while you will notice that the elastic step has become decrepitude. Ami some day one of the two pillars of . your early home will fall, and after a while the other pillar of that home will fall, and it will bo a comfort to yourself if, when they are gone, you can feel that while you are faithful in your new home, you never forget your old home, and the first friends you ever had, and those to whom you are more indebted than you ever can be to any one else, except to God— I mean your lather and mother. nil. Bt:t:< iii:i<*n »ER9SOX. The soul Life us Diminished From the Bodily Life. Sepclal to the Globe. New York, Jan. 17. — The Kev. Henry Ward Beecher preached this morning from John vi., 63: "It is the spirit that quick eneth; the flesh protiteth nothing: the words that 1 speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life." Mr. Beecher said: There is in all Christ's teaching an assumption that the animal lite of man and his physi cal faculties are utterly incapable of under standing the highest truth. Christ spoke to men as one who saw there was in them, but lying dormant, unusual but existent a department out of which might MM the perception of spiritual truth, but that, as a general fact, that department wis not opened at all, and that the knowl edge which could bo obtained only through that element in human nature was deficient in those that could understand, so far as their senses went, and so far as their mere scientific reasoning carried them, but in re gard to the highest realm of truth, which was God's nature and God's life, and that life corresponding to it in the human soul, they absolutely were ignorant nor could they until some change took place, under stand these truths, and he then teaches that there exists an effluence of the divine spirit, which is not simply illumination — though it is that— but it is life, power, the power of arousing life, and in that particular part of the soul where the cog nizance of divine things resides. He taught that God as a spirit may touch this inward susceptibility of men, this inward life, and that its development would bring to men true experience and understanding of all the truths pertaining to ONE'S soul life as distinguished from the bodily life. Now, in the spiritual realm there are the lower stages, there are intimations of what this spirit life must be. In the motherhood, in the fatherhood, in the love relations in the highest, noblest and purest philosophy there are intimations of what this soul life is, which is bred and developed by God, just as flowers are bred and devel oped by the sun. The roses would not blossom if the sun could not get at them and all over the hyperborean regions there is no flower or plant, simply because the sun is not warm enough; that i-< to say, the earth is so cold that the sun cannot make any difference, and Christ saw the knowledge that a man could ob tain by the opening of the higher faculties by which he could perceive what is imper ceptible by the natural, lower senses — that the shining out of the soul of God was the creative power that should unseal that dead chamber in us and fill it with life,apprehen sion and sympathy; and out from that would flow conduct "Why is it then, it 4 this be true: why doesn't God do it'.'" That is almost the first question. Ho does do it Why don't daisies grow under a shed when the meadow is spangled with golden dandelions? What is the reason that in some dark nook no dandelions grow? There is seed enough everywhere, but things wont grow where the light cannot penetrate and give them life. Why is it then that when God desires the development of this SPIRITUAL ELEMENT in the human family, it has developed In some, but in others not? Why, because they cover up that element and wont let the light shine upon It Light has come into the world and men love darkness rather than light. The very choicest part of your life is like a child crying, with no one to hear it. For there be many that have so far felt the remote touch of the divine life, as strange and wandering suggestions came to them. In the stillness of a twilight med itation, they are conscious of something that lifts them, or in the meditation that follows a great experience in the strug gle of life, ' or a great or crowned joy that says. "What does all that avail?" There may be pauses, in which a man looks away from himself and says, "Vanity of vanities, all is vanity." There come some ideals to a man and he says: "Oh, these are poems; if they were only real, but they are poetic." These are the cries of the unattended child in the golden chamber of your soul. There has come in upon you some divine influence, and you don't know what it is; you don't know how to translate it This is what is meant by that very solemn admonition of scripture: "Grieve not the spirit of God by which you are sanctified." This does not represent the ambition of God. Anger at your indiffer ence; but when men are brought to that state in their own experience that they are almost persuaded to open and let in the di vine, vivilic light that is the time when they should be more careful than any other, 1 st other influences overpower them and they shut the door and window, against it and perish. , . - ... * . . -„ They Slave Barn Everything;.

A Prediction Ventured That Jay Goali Will Shortly Turn Up in the Street Again, General Resume of the Recent Busi ness Moves Made by the Bank or England. Bankers Argue that America Mast This Year Export a Large Amount of Gold. "A Market of Imbeciles." Special to Globe. New Ton, Jan. 17.— San will say tomorrow morning: Not only has the much-expected January boom not turned up. but a state of affairs very annoying to the brokers and speculators has set In in Wall street, and It threatens to last for some time. The outside public keeps away, while the professional speculators ami cliques are so heavily loaded with stocks that they cannot possibly come into the market except iu the character of sellers. About a week ago the writer met Mr. Morisini, who gave an excellent definition of the present condition of the market. It is a market of Imbeciles. You can't go Into It on either side without losing money. If you Jump quickly in and out you may not i' <•> much, but you certainly inss your com missions and carrying chames. 1 know I don't want any of is, and am going away to California. Upon being asked whether he was leav ing Wall street for good the stalwart Vene tian answered with a good-natured smile: "Vou know, this leaving Wall Street is ilka taking Now Year's pledges. We all take them and nil break them, and If la three or four months the market is tempting, I'm sure I shall bo In it again." "Ami how about Mr. Gould?" was asked. "Well, Mr. Gould i- not a bit better than 1, bat be, too, docs not want stocks at present prices.'' These views begin to bo shared in by a great many of the big operators on Wall street, and together with the threatened railroad war and the decrease In exports of product, as well , as th« uncertainty of the issue ot the silver question, must naturally keep the stock market down, unless there should hoppen to be a great break in the grain market. Since the prospects of shipments of gold have caused business men to take an extra interest in statistics of exports, It will not be out of place to give hero a lew figures taken boat the statement just issued by the bureau of statistics made to the secretary of tho treasury. The totals repre sent the exports from the United States for the last two years, ami are GIVEN in HOUND FIGURES. ism, 1885. Beef, pork and dairy products... $96,450,000 $03,700,000 Mineral oils (petro leum, paraltlue, etc.) $19,100,000 $49,200,000 Bread Btutla $147,000,000 $129,700,000 Cotton (total for only from months ending Jan. 1 $110,200,000 .00,000 Except tor mineral oils, therefore, all ex ports show a decrease, and in one case, at least, that of breadstulfs, a much more serious one than is indicated by the above figures, for prices are much higher tins year than they were last year. This con dition of our exports and the return of large blocks Of stock, lead many bankers here to believe there will be considerable shipments of gold. The present condition of, the money mar ket also leads to the same belief, for the Bank of England has lost a large amount of gold, in spite of the high rate of discount. 4 per cent., which is almost unprecedented this time of the year. The reason of this high rate is rather curious. The usual course of the London money market is that a rise begins in September and culminates in November, but this ear there was no movement until the mid dle of November, when the Bank of Eng land raised the rate from I to I) per cent. There are, however, so many large financial institutions outside of the Bank of England in London thai they felt themselves strong enough to re fUse to follow the example of the bank, and the latter was obliged to go into the market, and, by borrow lag on consols, to loosen the amount of loanable capital. The precautious, however, proved futile in preventing the outllow of gold, and the bank was obliged to again puts its d, -count to 4 per cent. This gold, it was thought, would soon return, but the UNSETTLED STATE of affairs hi that unnappy island forced tho banks to protect themselves by keeping a considerable supply of gold on hand. Then came the issue of the Egyptian loan and a considerable export of gold from the Bank of England to Egypt. The greatest drain, however.came from Berlin, where money is usually plentiful this time of the year. The reason for the great demand for gold is somewhat in doubt, but the most feasible explanation is that the Russian loan which was placed in Berlin has caused it. Tho agricultural depression which has existed some time in Kussia is well known, and the Bank of Kussia has taken upon itself to try and assist the farmers. This, as everyone knows, is a most dangerous proceeding, and the only way the bank can prepare to meet a financial crisis is by having a large stock of gold on hand. Tho situation must bo therefore summed up as follows: The Bank of Eng land holds the reserve of gold for the United Kingdom and Ireland. The reserve is heavily drawn on both at home and abroad, and the supply has enormously decreased. The only means that the bank has of increasing its supply Is by raising the rate, which will induce other countries, such as the United States., to send their gold there on account of a high rate of in terest. Thus our bankers argue that, even without taking into account the falling oil in our exports, we shall have to export a large amount of the precious metal. —^^— mi Di: mi ller's expeuiexcc. Joaquin •Miller-*, Daughter Tells a Pit if nl Story in Chicago. Chicago. Jan. 17.— Last Thursday a young woman, apparently about 21 years of age, called at the office of the Elder Pub lishing company and asked for the editor of the Literary Life. Mr. Elder, the pub lisher.answeied in the absence of the editor, and to him she presented a manuscript which she wished to sell. She told a touch ing story of how she had left New York with a dramatic company, hoping to secure a pla^e in the profession and earn her own support, how the com pany went to pieces finally, and how she at last found herself alone and penniless in Chicago. The girl bore evidence of educa tion and culture. She concluded her story by saying that her name was Maude Miller, and that she was the daughter of the poet, Joaquin Miller. Mr. Elder supplied Miss Miller with money and introduced her to several kind-hearted ladies, by whom she was cared for till last night, when she was put aboard a New York train, comfortably equipped for a journey.
