PICKING vTHE PLUMS. Edwards Has an Office and Morgan Will Get One in . a Few Days. The State Park Bill Recom mended to Pass by the House. Senator Pope Receives a Cow ardly Letter from an Un known Person. The Adjournment Bugaboo Continues to Agitate the House and Senate. Senator Edwards was receiving many congratulations yesterday on his ap pointment to the collectorship of cus toms at St. Paul. Beyond a certain very small and disgruntled element in the first district the appointment will give satisfaction. Col. Edwards has political and business abilities of the quality to make him an efficient official. He dis places Col. Farrington, who has held the office since the death of Dr. Guer non. It was expected yesterday that the district attorneyship was to be settled, and Mr. Morgan's friends were busy sending numerous telegrams to Senator Davis and Congressman Dunnell, urg ing a deserved recognition of him. Mr. Dunnell was also notified of the legis lative petition in Mr. Morgan's favor, which had just been forwarded. A URN MENT. "Ihe House is Not Ready to Say When it Will Adjourn. The senate sent into the house yester day a concurrent resolution that the liouse adjourn April 16 at 12 m., and that the introduction of bills cease March SO. The house did not take kindly to this, and the resolution, was laid over under notice of debate. It ■was reported on the floor that Auditor Braden had refused to pay legislative Solons after April 16, holding that the ninety days ended then. To a Globe reporter Auditor Braden said that he believed that Attorney General Clapp had first inclined tothe opinion that the session must constitutionally end April 16. but that on further study of the sub ject he had about come to concur with the house, that the date of final ad journment was April 23. STATE PARK. the Bill Is Recommended to Pass the House. In committee of the whole the house reached the state park bill in regular order yesterday, and Mr. Lane moved that it be recommended to pass. . .... Mr. Hoyt— think a matter of as much Importance as this ought not be crowded i through with one-third of the members of this house absent. There is a ques tion of moral right involved in this bill; as representative of the people we must throw certain safeguards around the bill to prevent the state ever being called upon to make appropriations for the maintenance of this park. The bill means that Minneapolis will get the park, and the next legislature be called upon to appropriate money to embellish it. If safeguards are not thrown around this bill, within the next ten years we will be called upon to appropriate half a million dollars to keep this park up. All I have to say in this matter is in the interests of the slate. Mr. Lane l cannot see how we can legislate to reach twenty-years hence. Mr. Lane reviewed the history of the •origin ot the state park. ■ "Pain authorized to say that the gov ernor will not sign the bill until the * 100,000 from Minneapolis is placed in Ids hands. The city has the money _ early now." '. :f "••': Mr. Hoyt— l would amend this bill so ns to strike out the right of the state to use these lands ever, because it leaves the way open for future state expenses. Mr. Lane— l do not know how to draw a bill stronger to protect the.interests of the state than this. . Mr. Forbes— ln the matter of the State-Agricultural society the country member were rather badly roped in. Mr. Keyes — I beg to offer an amend ment—that the state treasurer shall not pay any part of this ?100,000 unless Min neapolis, ten days after the passage of this act, shall pay into the state treasury the sum of $100,000; if not, then ail lights to revert to the state. Mr. Lane— l sincerely hope this v.ill not pass. We can reach the object sought just as well by a concur rent resolution. Mr. Hay— only effect of the amendment will be to dstroy the bill. Mr. Keyes— l only wish to protect the interests "of the state. I will suggest in place of this amendment, that if this 1.11 is recommended to pass, that when it is reached on the calendar, it shall not be passed until there is read from the clerk's desk a certificate of the slate treasurer as to the amount of money received by him from Minneapo lis. The bill was recommended to pass then without further objection. Rendering Nuisances. F. C. Stevens introduced two impor tant bills yesterday relating to render ing establishments in cities, and render ing establishments in the old Seventh Ward of St. Paul. The effect of the first bill is to exclude these offensive establishments from corporate limits, and the second corrects errors in the old law governing the rendering establish ments of the old Seventh Ward of St. t-aul. Union Depot Sheds. H. F. Stevens has taken a new way to get at the trouble of sheds at the Union depot of St. Paul. He intro duced a bill yesterday giving the rail load commission the same power over railway stations that they now have over common carriers. In this way it is hoped that the much-needed sheds can be forced to be built. SQUIBS. The house will not meet again until 'Monday evening. The Misses Gussie and Minnie Perrin, daughters of .Representative Perrin, were visitors at the house yesterday. Two Ramsey bills were introduced in the house yesterday— create a justice court in the Tenth and Eleventh wards nnd to provide for constables in these wards. Since the constitution of the state now compels the taxation of mortgages on real estate, Mr. Davenport has intro duced a bill repealing that section, so that a law may be passed removing such mortgages. This appeal will have to be voted upon in 1890. The Ramsey delegation yesterday de cided to recommand -the passage of the bill authorizing the issue of bonds for Loulevarding the Mississippi embank ment from Port Snelling to the Soldiers' home, Minneapolis. IT HANGS FIRE. Legislators Are Unwilling to Go Home. So far as the senate is concerned, the legislature will close down at noon, Tuesday, April 16. The joint com mittee of the senate and the house re com mended this date for final'adjourn ment, and it was forthwith adopted by the senate. The liouse, however, took no action fin the matter, and, at the present time, there is every probability of legislators holding onto the treasury pay until April 23, when, legally, the legislature is bound to adjourn sine die. -Seuator .Ives claims, if: the ad journment is to take place April 16, that Tuesday will" be the last day. bills can legally be; introduced without the con sent of the governor. : x THE BOODLE CRY. ." Senator Pope Indignantly Re pudiates a Cowardly Attack. Senator Pope has a grievance. Some dastardly person, or persons, afraid to publicly substantiate their statements, have addressed him the following com munication: . Senator Tope: I see by the morning papers that you have demanded that a committee of investigation be appointed to inquire into the charges of bribery and corruption of the body of which you are a member, lf you are correctly reported and believed by outsiders, it is a move in the, right direction. We trust you will preserve the honor and dignity of the state, and let no guilty one.escape. Ax Ai'Minix Citizex. V. S.— you tell Gen. Baker . and Senator Bowen that you were earnestly opposed to the passage ot the Duluth & Winnipeg bill, and that you were ready to champion the opposition to the bill? If so please tell the senator as to your sudden conversion. P. B.— Did you state to a brother sen ator that you had in your pocket $2,000 cash and scrip for 5,000 acres of swamp lands, and that he could get the same amount if he would sunnort the bill? P. S.— Will you read this letter to the senate? Senator Pope had the letter read to the senate, and followed that up by say ing he could not fathom the personality or the motive of the writer of the letter. It was not writes by a lady, although the number of postscripts lent color to that thought. "1 will only say at this time, first, that if an investigation is ordered by the senate, my evidence, such as it is, is at their disposal. Sec ond—lf an investigation is not ordered, my statement may or may not be made — made it will be over my own sig nature and will be proven to be true. Third The insinuations conveyed in this letter are utterly and entirely false."" "Have you sufficient reliable testi mony to warrant an investigation?" put in Senator Ives. "I will not say," was the unsatis factory reply of Senator Pope; and Senator Clarke was led to express his astonishment that any senator would have deigned to notice such a letter as that read. And there the episode ended. Sen ators appear to be waiting for each other to move for an investigation, but it is very questionable whether any definite action will be taken. There is an evident feeling of unrest at the un satisfactory manner in which this mat ter is being treated. Senator Pope would seem to be in possession of some startling information, implicating mem beis of the senate in the charge of boodleism, but he does not act. Who will? The citizens of the state anx iously await a reply. NEW CORPORATIONS Are Required to Pay the Secre tary of State Pat Fees. A paper check upon bogus corpora tions is proposed by a bill introduced by Senator Tosten Johnson. The fol lowing fees are fixed on the capital stock of companies filing articles of in corporation: Capital, $5,000 $5 Capital, $10,000 .10 Capital, $25,000 15 Capital. $50.000 50 Capital, $100,000 100 Capital, $300,000 300 Capital, $500,000 500 Capital, $800,000 800 Capital, $1,000,000 : 1,000 All sums sums over $1,000,000 the fee will be $2,000. Building and loan asso ciations are exempt from these charges, and will be requited to pay a fee of $10 for each article filed and $35 for every increase in capital stock. BILLS INTRODUCED Against Dynamite, Pool Selling and the State Boiler Inspector. The introduction of bills goes on at a rapid rate. There have been 548 intro duced in the senate and over 1,000 in the house. Senator Compton aired a little fad when he proposed a bill which author izes the adjutant general to furnish the corps of Sons of Veterans with the dis used arms and accouterments of the militia. Senator Halvorsen introduced his bill ' prohibiting the manufacture and sale of dynamite in the state, except for blast ing purposes. The full text of the meas ure appeared in the Globe a week ago, and provides that any one storing bombs ' and explosives, which result in the loss of life, shall be deemed guilty of mur der in the third degree. Senator Smith had read a bill prohib iting the sale of pools on everything but horse races. - .* . Senator Edwards launched a measure holding guiltless commander-in-chief, officers and men of miiitia who, in pursuance of orders, kill any person in dispersing a disorderly mob. A similar bill has already been vetoed this ses sion by Gov. Merriam, on the ground of its unconstitutionality. It is claimed that the objectionable portions of the bill have been eliminated in the pro posed measure. Senator Kellar is after the scalp of the state boiler inspector, and had read a bill regulating the appointment of this official by the governor, and makes the office a salaried one. Senator Hall proposes to so amend ' the law regulating the state fairs that the money appropriated to the county fairs can be taken by two or more counties for the purpose of holding a joint fair. KILLED. This Is the Fate of Poe's Bill Clos ing Saloons on Memorial Day. .Representative Poe's bill closing sa loons on Memorial day was indefinitely postponed by the senate when in com mittee of the whole. Senator Kellar vigorously opposed the measure,' and he concluded a brilliant effort by declar ing: "I protest against you drawing the lines closer, closer, closer, closer no, never." While not one of the sena tors had an intelligent idea as to what the senator from Steams was aiming, they lauarhed hugely and rolled again in their seats. When, by a vote of 15 to 10, the bill was killed, Senator Kellar said: "Thank you, gentlemen; thank you very much." .- . _. A DELUSION.

SUNDAY MORNING; ; ; , MARCH* 24, 1889.— SIXTEEN PAGES. LOVE'S OWNWEAPON What Is Indicated by Rosy Lips of Pretty Women. Mrs. Whitney Has a Monopo ly of Mrs. Cleveland's Kisses. Mrs. Harrison Has a Good Mouth Plenteous in Its Kisses. A Study of the Oscillatory Or gans of Women of Prom inence. But her lips were so near- Well, I can't make it clear or explain it to you, ... -, - . ii But her lips were so near that— what else could 1 do? —St. Louis Globe-Democrat. Mrs. Cleveland has been noted in Washington as a woman who rarely kisses her friends. Mrs. Whitney was the only lady Washington with whom she was on kissing terms. This marked abstinence was not. assumed in order to preserve the dignity of her exalted position, for Frances Folsom was a conservative kisser as a school girl. Mrs. Whitney, on the contrary, is liber al in the distribution of such favois among her lady friends, and fortunately her lips are very pretty. "I judge a man by his eyes, but a woman always by her lips," said Ben jamin Franklin, who undoubtedly was a good judge of human nature. Abdallah, the shiek of the Persians, who was noted for his wisdom in' many things, once gave some advice to his courtiers about choosing a wife: "Let her be a woman whose eyes turn not away when you speak to her, and whose nose hath no tendency upward, for the first is an owner of deceit, the second of bad temper; but, above all, look you to her lips. Choose no woman whose lips droop at the corners, for your life will be a perpetual mourning time, nor yet should they curve too much upward, for that denotes frivolity. Beware of the under lip that rolleth outward, for that' woman hath more desire than con science. Select for a wife one whose lips are straight— thin, for she is a shrew, but with just the fullness neces sary to perfect symmetry." 1 have read a number of these wise sayings about lips, and unconsciously I found myself studying the lips of women, and the result of my study has shown that the mouth has more' to do with making or marring the beauty of the face than any other feature, and the wonderful part of it is that it is not the pretty mouths that make the pretty faces, nor vice versa; everything de pends on the expression. I ; can not choose a clearer way of explaining how this is than by referring to the lips ot some well-known ladies In New York. There is Mrs. Alice J. Shaw, the whist ler; she has a mouth "like a flower un blown,-' straight nnd sweet, curving upward a very, little at the corners, full in the center, red as a rose, and alto gether lovely. And when she has those lips all puckered, all ready to whistle, oh, yum, yum, is it any wonder that every masculine heart in the audience goes pit-a-pat? There is Ella Wheeler Wilcox, the poetess. You would know her soul was full of music if you looked only once at her mouth. Her lips are ripe and red, but so sensitive; every emotion is shown in their quick, responsive quiver. Here is as expressive a mouth as one often sees. Marion Foster, the artist, has a mouth that tells her history without a sound. Those sweet, closed lips speak more eloquently than many more noisy ones. They tell a story of patience and sweet ness that goes home to every heart. From her invalid's chair she watches all that is best and loveli est in the world, and with the purity of thought that comes only from clean souls like hers, she weaves upon the canvas a picture so true that you would wonder where she gets her inspiration. If you are so fortunate as to know her and will allow your heart to listen, those silent lips of hers will tell you. Mrs. Croly (Jennie June) has a wide, straight, laughing mouth. She has a ready smile for every one, and ready sympathy as well. She looks on the bright side of things always, and how much better it is. If only we all could do so; but we have not all a mouth like Jennie June.- Nelly. Illy has a little mouth; her lips are slightly compressed, which gives her an expression of shrewdness and worldly wisdom, which says: "You may be able to take me in. but you want to very careful that you don't get taken in yourself." '< J .;f Mrs. Bradley A. Fiske, daughter of Joseph Harper and wife of Lieut. Fiske, of the United States navy, has lips like a red peach, full, soft and red. With her tur.*uois eyes and red gold hair, she is a striking picture. Mrs. Dr. Pryor, of Park avenue, familiarly known as "Young Mrs. Pryor." has a mouth that always makes me' think of "Young Mrs. Jardine." not because her name was "Silence," but because there is so much of that sweet, womanly nature In them, that without the least trace of strong-mindedness in it, can tide a man over misfortunes mountain high, and yet he hardly knows what helped him; he only, knows that there was something that would not let him sink. Mrs. Gen.Pryor has a pleasant mouth, but there are lines of determination : LOVE'S weapons. ' * * and ambition as well, which indicates that it she had been a man she might have been a general, too, and • a good one. '•■ . • .'.-. .v .. .*" .*u -Mrs. Frank Leslie has a mouth about which clings a sad, wistful '.expression, as if she had missed something out "of her life, or some one had sadly disap pointed her. This habit of the lips seems sadly at variance with her bright, sparkling eyes; yet, in their depths, when she is not speaking, there lingers a suggestion that her life does not hold all that she wishes for, courted and honored though she is. rffiiSftffiffifej^ .: Amelie_ Rives . Ch. uler ; has a mouth very full .and very red; the under lip protrudes slightly. She does not smile easily; when she does it comes in slow fashion. She has some tricks of the lip when speaking that to gentlemen are very fetching. She curves the under lip outward in a way that is very sug gestive of "Quick or the Dead" kisses. Her mouth is sadly at variance with the rest ot her face, which, in repose, is rather classic. MissZerega, who was to be the choice of his grace of Newcastle, has bus like a child, soft and tender," that give a very innocent expression, which is heightened by her wide, earnest eyes of velvety brown. Mrs. Fred-' Vanderbilt has a very pretty mouth and a very kindly one, all the lines of her face: are in harmony, and therein lies her beauty. She is particu larly pleasing when she speaks; her lips suggest only tenderness and kind liness, and those who know her best will bear witness that they testify correctly. Miss Grace Lowther has lips as red as cherries, with flashing black eyes and raven locks. She is as brilliant a lec ture as one often looks upon. ; Mrs. John Bigelow had a very charac teristic mouth. You could, look at it imagine just how she said to the scornful Ouida: "You needn't put on such airs about the. Americans, they are tlie only people under heaven who will read your nasty books." Or how she told the upstart English lord, when at his own dinner table he boasted that the English captured the guns at Bun ker Hill: "Well, maybe they did get the guns, but we kept the hill." Mrs. Bigelow's lips were a trifle firm some times, but they were never afraid of the truth, and no one can say that a sen tence ever passed them with malicious intent toward any human being. Mrs. Pierre Lorillard has very ex pressive lips. They are straight" and finely cut, and when in repose are not unlike the lips of a statue, so perfect is their outline. - Mrs. John Sherwoad has very mobile lips. You can always tell what her mood is from the expression of her mouth. She is a fine conversationalist and knows how to talk gracefully, which is ' more of an accomplishment than many people guess. Mrs. Levi P. Morton has a very pleas ant mouth. . She seems always to be amiling. If her friends can be believed it is but an index to her disposition. Mrs. Harrison has rather a large mouth, but one that is full of character. She has very beautiful teeth, and is prettiest when she speaks. Mrs. Harriet Webb, the well-known elocutionist, has very full, smiling lips. He laugh is something good to see as well as to hear, for she allows her lips full play, to have as good a time as they can, and her even, white teeth have no defects to hide. 1 would travel miles on a rainy day and take the risk of get ting wet for the benefit of -Mrs. Webb's laugh. It's infectious and hearty, and does one good. Mrs. Harriet Clark, the sweet singer, has a pairof lips that I know not how to describe. I think of full-blown roses, of ripe strawberries; 1 even fall back upon the old chestnut of "Cupid's bow,'' but none of them will answer my pur pose in the least. They are perfect, that is all; and how she can sing. The music ripples off those lips, growing sweeter by the contact. She has eyes like blue forget-me-nots; a complexion like the tint of a sea-shell. She is "al together lovely," "a lady f aire beyond compare." One might .0 on indefinitely, as the language of lips is inexhaustible, but there is danger of being tired even of the prettiest lips. Let me, however, give you of jny readers who represent the lords of creation, an infallible rule by ■ which you can safely practice. Never venture to kiss a woman until you have taken a good look at her lips. The eyes are very well as far as they go, but the lips tell the tale after all. HER STATUS SETTLED. New York's Four Hundred Opens Its Arms to Mrs. Cleveland. There is no longer any doubt on the question of Mrs. Cleveland's reception in New York society, says the World. At the tea given to her by the artist, Harry Le Grand Cannon, she met the most exclusive of the Four Hundred, whose carriages have ever since been flowing in a steady stream to the ladies' entrance of the Vic toria hotel. Mrs. Whitney has made a point of asking all her ; friends to call on her, and Mrs. Cleve land's position here is now beyond cavil. Almost the entire presidential set, thrown in such close contact with each other in Washington during the last four years, have moved in a body to. New York, and will undoubtedly stand by each other socially. Mrs. Whitney is already a power here, and is eagerly welcomed back by society; she has been very much touched with the genuine warmth and cordiality of her receptions, and proposes to justify it by building a new ball-room to her Fifth avenue house, which she will make as much a center of amusement and de light as was her famous ball-room in Washington. Mrs. Daniel Manning will return from Europe next autumn to reopen her house and present her daucbter to society, and her drawing rooms are safe to be a center for the Democratic swells. The _Clevelands : will purchase a house in the fall, and will also entertain a great deal. Mrs. Lamont will keep house, and so will Mrs. Fairchild, a descendant of Horatio Seymour, and who has been a prominent figure during her life in Washington. The. Republicans in New York have in the past had a good deal more social influence among the upper ten than the Democrats— but next winter, many of their leading families having been removed to Washington, there is a prospect that the Democracy will make a powerful social clan here whose influence is likely to be felt. There is still a great deal of talk concerning Mrs. Cleveland's failure to welcome the incoming administration by remaining in the- White house on in auguration day— by the Harrisons, who have been most guarded, and who have gone out of their way to say pleas ant things about their predecessor.. Mrs. Harrison has spoken many times of the charming dinner given* her by Mrs. Cleveland on her ar rival in Washington, and has warmly; declared her opinion as to the younger lady's beauty and attractiveness of manner. Mrs. Cleveland's defenders explain her absence on inauguration day on the grounds of fatigue and in disposition, but the general opinion! seems to be that Mrs. Cleveland showed less tact on that day than on her entire residence in the White house. •■ -. - ~s&_ HER NEIGHBORS.

THE PENSIVE VIOLET « Is all the Rage ; With Fashionable . Dames in Lent. .'".-' f- f . The violet still holds its own upon the heart of the society woman, says the New York World, despite all that has been done by the queer person who, -finding the real blossom too expensive L for her purse, has - taken ; to pinning .dreadful purple musliu abominations at her throat and on her muff. Even she, with her vulgarization, cannot drive the sweet purple flower from its throne. v Every girl who can afford it wears a cluster of the Bonaparte's ■ blossom thrust in between her monkey -skin cape, or pinned to her muff, and* when her friends drop in upon her when af ternoon * church is done, for a friendly - cup of tea, they find her little silver urn surrounded with half a dozen- tiny . glasses, in each of which is a small bunch of the little pur ple flower. Go into the Lenten services, where . she is confessing with sweet voiced penitence how many things she has left undone that she should have done, and done those things which she ought not have done; that there is no health in her, and that she is a mis erable , little sinner; or ; into those concerts of classical music, which she allows herself during Lent, perhaps by way of penance, and the air is heavy with the perfume of many violets. In all her closets and chiffoniers are long" silken sachets filled with orris root, ! which leave the perfume of violets upon her gowns, her gloves and her laces. At the daihty little lunches which she serves up from the Lenten sewing class, which are not supposed to be formal luncheons at all, but are almost as jolly as the functions that | went by that name during the season, all her decorations are of violet color, the shade of the dark single flower and of the pale double one from Parma combined both in the bou quets,' bonbons, the flowers and the needle-wrought scarf which passes down the centre of the table. These two shades of purple and all the tints in be tween will be the popular spring color, which does not mean a revival of the grayish-purple shade known as helio trope, so much in use three years ago. They are clear tints of purple, all the way from the royal color to the pale lavender, and they will be much used in the combination with white. The new satines and China silks have sprays of violet blossoms scattered over the clear white grounds, and white India silks are being made up with lilac velvet. A beautiful French gown just imported has an under-skirt of white silk and an under-bodice of the same; over this are Greek draperies of pale purple silk-muslin, whose edges are hand wrought with a broad band of dark purple violets set in between two narrow lines of gold thread. Several of the empire dresses being made for debutantes, summer wardrobes, are of the pretty old-fashioned book muslin, with violets em broidered upon their edges, and with wide, soft lilac sashes tied around the waist high up under the arms, and long lilac gloves reaching up to the puffed sleeves. With these go lilac silk stock ings, and the pretty pointed satin Di rectoire slippers of the same shade, and the Directoire coats are being made of violet moire, -skirts of sheer silk ,muslin or lace, .
