Secretart Manning .has rented a house in Washington lot" four years. This indicates that he has none to the capital to stay; but be is a little too cau tious if be had rented it for eight years be might have made a better bargain. Another uprising of revolutionists is expected on the Isthmus of Panama. If our marines have to be sent down there again to prevent rapine and restore order they must teach the iusurgents a more impressive and lasting lesson than was given them few months ago. - Cholera is daily widening the swath of its ravays in Spain. Our sanitary aulhoritie here hope to effectually bar its ingress, and their task will be materN ally lightened if the people intelligently help them. Epidemics of every sort are the guests of dirt and fouj odors. Clean liness is therefore the best antidote and safeguard. .. Mr. Beecher has been preaching on evolution. He says: "Regarding crea tion as an individual, its whole pastime has been in growing labors and labor pains, and by and by it shall bring forth a glory and a wonder and a marvel, when the consummation shall come in the land of light and knowledge." Mr. Beecher is getting "top lofty." If ho keeps on juggling the language iu this style, he will soon be able to write a dramatic ent cism for tbe New York Tribune. In Russia the population is so widely spread over the vast steppes and plains that there are but eleven cities that have a population of over 60,0(10 inhabitants. St. Petersburg has 860,000 by the census of 1884. Moscow has 730.UOO, Odessa 150.000, and Kishinev 130,000; Saratov contains 96,000 inhabitants, Kiev 76,000, Nikolaiey 75,000, Karan 90,000. while Samara and Cronstadt rise but little above 50.000. The mayor of Portland, Me., says be will permit no liquor to be sold within his jurisdiction during the sessions of the Grand Army next week. But an inter ested party says, "Liquor will be sold openly during the week of the encamp ment, and any determined effort to pres vent it will result in trouble. Ten tlious and men will not submit to an interfere ence in their personal privileges at tbe hands of thirty or forty policemen. It would be a disgrace if men com ing from states where there is no such interference should be made to feel the effects of Maine fanaticism. These men, or most of them, have been in the habit of having something to drink and they are going to have it." We trust there is not going to be a civil war on northern ground. Although the United States Fish Com mission began its work only ft i teen years ago and with extremely limited means, has already distanced the Old World in the magnitude of the results it has achieved and iu the efficacy of the appli ances it has invented or perfected. Its mission is to study tbe habits of fish, to protect and propagate all the useful vari elies, and to distribute the seed so as to stock barren waters or as stated by Professor Baird: 1. The systematic investigation of the waters of the Lotted States, and the bio logical and physical problems which they present. 2. Investigation of the methods of fisheries, past and present, and the slat' istics of production and commerce of fishery products. 3. The introducing and multiplication of useful food fishes throughout the country, especially in waters under the jurisdiction of the general government, or those common to several states, none of -which wouki uudertake to make ex penditures for the benefit of their neigh bors. The American display at the recent Beilin. and London ' fisheries exhibitions was a revelation to European savants by reason of its completeness and ingenuity These valuable achievements are mainly due to tbe tireless zeal and broad intelli gence of Professor Spencer Baird . SOCIETY LADIES. The Mehdaues Hendricks, Whitney, Mannino, Vilas, Endicott, Logan AND CARLISLE. Washington Cor. Cleveland Leader. MRS. HENDRICKS, The wife of the vice president, is one of the most accomplished women in publi life, and it is a question if she does not merit more prominence than she has yet received irom Washington society. Hi nee 1854, when she first married Tom Lien dricks, she has been connected with pubs jic men and social lite. She is a tall commanding Voman, as straight a a line. She has black eyes; a distingue air, and she wears eye glasses. She dresses nchs ly, and she is as ambitious for her has band as Mrs. John A. Locan. She is thorough democrat, and she takcB as much interest in politics as any statesman in the country. She is an Episcopalian, and sue ana her husband attend church regu larly. Tbe probability is that they will take a large house here next year and en tertain a graat deal. I don't think Mr Hendncks has yet got over the presiden tial fever, and I doubt not he has an.bi tions for himself in 1883: The feud be tween Mrs. Hendricks and Mrs. McDon ald is well known, and it shows no pros pect of being stopped. Should Joe Mc Donald get one of the supreme judge suips wuicu oecome vacant during C'levc land s term he will bting his wife to Washington, and we will have a lively time. Mrs. Hendricks has now g&ie back to Indiana. She lives In Indianapolis, in an old fashioned house of light brick, be fore which" a "big lawn of velvety green strcwues. n is a. rno Jiousentl broad hall runs thrp JtQeatir '1 furnished, and peow,iiig" an- el Drary, it must be a tench mow? jlace3oMliw tlian at WiBsjaV wnets we uenaricts nave been st is, and I doubt not the family -will belad to be away from Washington during the heated term. Next to Mrs. Hendricks in social rank come : (-; v ' -,' ! the bayards. They are one of the most aristocratic families in Washington. Their blood is as blue as the sky, and the stream from a two inch hose will run under any of their insteps without touching the skin. Tom Bayard claims to be descended from old Chevalier Bayard, the knight tamptur mm repfotlu; but if my remembrance is correct this old knight was a bachelor, and if so this must be a slight blot on the escutcheon of the Bayards. It is so far back, however, that it does not matter. Mrs. Bayard is in delicate health, but she has a half dozen daughters, and she is able to do the honors of her mansion at home. She has a refined face, bright eyes, and she dresses like a lady ot the old school. She wears a headdress of lace, and out of this stand rows of little gray curls something like those which Mrs. Polk wore when she presided over the White house. She is an accomplished sos ciety woman, and her daughters educated under her careful training, are among the brightest women of the Capital. Miss Kate Bayard, the eldest one at home, is a fine horseback rider, and she made the round ot the race track not long ago on a fleet racer, and then went over the bur dies, taking fences and ditches with all the courage of an accomplished jockey. Miss Kate Bayard is a fine conversation alist, and she has for years been one of the features of Washington society. Her peculiar dress and ber bright bon mot have been spoken of at dinner after din ner, and it is probable that she will take front rank at the -coming assemblages at the White house. There has been a good deal of talk about Mr. Bayard's poverty, but I am told he is worth a cou ple of hundred of thousand dollars, and the income from this, is connection with his salary of 8,000 a year, ought to give him enough to entertain well, considering the fact that he owns his own house and cooks his own terrapin. His house is on Massachusetts avenue in a growing loca tion, and is amply large enough to ac commodate the various ministers whom he Will wine and dine within it As to the other members of the cabinet, MRS. MANNING Has had some experience in entertaining in Albany, when she was the daughter of a rich man. She is young, pretty, and her home will doubtless be a leading social center. Mrs. Whitney can not but have a large social following as the daughter of Senator Payne and wife of Secretary Wbilnev, the brightest, perhaps, of all tbe cabinet ministers, and she will stand at the very front of the court circles, and I doubt not ber home will be the rendez vous of the best classes who come here during the present administration. The almighty dollar will not be lacking, and her house, which, 1 understand, is on Connecticut avenue, will make a great deal of social history. I do not think ATTORNEY GENERAL GARLAND Will pay much attention to Washington society, lias wife died shortly after be was elected to the senate, and his only aauguter is under twelve years of age, He has a comfortable house on Massachu setts avenue, and his mother, who is too old to care for society, presides over it Her name name is Mrs. Hubbard. She is plain and common in ber mt-nners, like her son, and on her first cabinet receo tlon day it is said she tended tbe door herself. She waggery dignified and self possessed about it, too, and when the bell rang while she was entertaining some of ber company, she would excuse herself, answer the door, and bring in the new ar rivals. Senator Garland is very devoted to his mother, and he talks with her abou all his affairs. Mie is now over seventy years of age, and is thoroughly wrapped up in ber boy Augustus. MRS. LAMAR Is dead, and Lamar, with all his dreami ness, snows no sign ot marrying again His wife became slightly demented before she died, i am told, but ber husband took good care of her until she died, about year ago. Mrs. Lamar was quiet and re tiring in her tastes. She ai very domes tic and did not go out much while she was at Washington. Mrs. Vilas is an accomplished society woman from Madison, Wis. Her home here is at Mo. 27 Iowa circle, just across the park Irom the big mansion rented by Mrs. Logan. MRS. LOO AN. Mrs. Logan's house will be the ceuter ot the republican society here during the coming four years; and it may be that it will be tbe wheel which will carry the Lo gan family into the White house. Senator Logan holds a higher position now be fore the country than ever before. It is probable that, lie will pursue a different course in regard lo bis life at Washing ton. Prior to this he has lived in a cou ple of stuffy little rooms on Twelfth street, and has boarded at the common table of a second class boarding house Under such circumstances Mrs. Logan has attained her present prominence. It is hard to say what she will be able to d with a magnificent bouse at her disposal, There is no better judge of human nature in the united Mates than Mrs. John A Logan. She is a thorough politician, and the wires which she will manipulate from bur house on Iowa Circle will ramify the land, and win probably reach every vil lage within this country. A description of Mrs. Logan would be superfluous. She is a bright woman with all ber political arts, and she has a heait as big as the capitol dome. She is a good wife, a good mother, and she has been tbe friend to scores of girls all over Washington. She is one of the few women of whom you hear nothing but praise; and John A. Lo gan may thank his wife for at least half of the success he has bad. MRS. CARLISLE. By the wav, I had almost forgotte Mrs. Carlisle. It is the general opinion here that Carlisle will be reelected speak er, ana n so nis wire win take a very prominent part in Washington society The papers were full of her all last win ter. She is a tall, well formed, light haired blonde of perhaps forty. She has rather a queenly air, talks well, and dur ing her reign here as speaker's wife has made many friends and few enemies. Living as she does at a hotel, it is impos sible for her to do very much in the way oi entertaining, but she bas made it point to conform strictly to the rules of etiquette, and the Kiggs house, which her home, will probably be one of the great places next winter.

TERRIBLE DISASTER IN COAL PIT. A BRITISH Two Hundred and Thirty Miners la Fiery Tomb Heartrending Scene The Cholera's Fnry Foundered at Sea Foreign Politic. New York. June 19. Tbe following table has been receive 1 j Manchester, June 18. A terrible ex plosion of fire damp occurred thlj morning in tba Clifton Hall colliery near this city. There were 350 men at work in tbe mine at the time, 139 of whom have been recovered. Two hundred and thirty are entomb 1, and is fearei that they will be either suffo cated or burned to death. Great excite ment prevails anl the scenes in the Vicinity the mine are heartrending. V lves, mothers and relatives are congregated near the entrance crying and shrieking and imploring God to save the loved one im prisoned below. The cages need by exploring parties got stuck in descending the shaft, and delayei them fully two hours. They have not as yet succeeded in reaching the imprisoned miners. The rescued men say that at the time of the explosion they rushed to the bottom of the maiu shaft, and barely got there with their lives. They are entirely ignorant of the fate of thou they left be hind. Later. The explosion was caused by fire damp. There were working in the mine at tbe time it occurred 340 miner. One hun dred and sixty of these were at work in the level in which the explosion oc curred. They are still in the mine and can not be reached, owing to the masses of coal thrown down by the explosion, and which closed up their means ot exit. ONE HUNT) It ED MOKE RESCUED. Manchester, June 19. One hundred of tbe imprisoned miners in the Clifton Hall colliery have been rescued. It is now thought that tbe remainder, about ISO in all, have perished. RapM Spread of the Cholera. Madrid, June 1 9. The cholera is spread ing at an alarming rate. From tbe cities of Murcia, Valencia and Castellon, a total of fj&S new cases and 151 deaths are reported to have occurred within the past twenty- four hours. At Madrid one death is re ported and six new cases. The inhabitants ot the populous quarters of this city strenuously oppose all measarei taken by the municipal authorities to disin fect their dwellings.' Tbe resistance ot the people beoame so passionate and persistent that the authorities finally felt constrained to abandon the enforcement of all the sani tary regulations which bad been adopted to prevent tbe entry of cholera into Madrid or to limit its ravages should the dreaded dis ease find a lodgment therein. In the oortes Wednesday evening Senor Bagasta denied that cholera existed in Mad rid, and severely arraigned tbe government for asserting the contrary, thereby doing great Injury to the commerce ot the capital aa well as to the many other interests of Madrid. Senor Canovas Del Castillo, prime minis ter, and Senor Romero y Robledo, minister ot the interior, defended the action ot the government in making public the facts re garding cholera. They said that the gov ernment were desirous ot preventing any alarm among tbe people, which would be caused by the false reports in circulation, if tbey were allowed to go unchallenged and uncontradicted. .

York was visited Thursday forenoon, by an earthquake shock, which lasted several seconds, and caused great alarm among the people. GENERAL FOREIGN NEWS. The British Cabinet-Makers. London, June 19. Marquis of Salisbury bad a two hours' audience with tbe queen Wednesday, something unprecedented as to length. The general features of tbe inter view became known at the Carlton club during the evening from tbe conversation ot members who bad attended the confer ence. From this source it is learned that the queen displayed a knowledge and grasp of the situation and a strength of de termination such as she has rarely shown in recent years. ' She brut had aside Lord Salisbury's objections t? taking office be cause ot the Liberal majority in tbe bouse by saying that she would see to it that too Li beraLs should give his administration s reasonable degree of support- She said that she had already been in negotiation with the retiring premier, and tbe latter had agreed to refrain from obstructivs tactics on condition that pending legislation should be completed as begun. In regard to foreign relations, the queen was very positive In her demand that the agreement in process ot negotiation between Lord Granville and M. de Giers regard ing the Afghan frontier question, should be completed, in order that -peace may be preserved between England and Russia. She also insisted upon the advisability of seeking closer aliances with certain of the continental powers, especially Germany, and strictly enjoined Lord Salisbury to put an end to the political isolation into which England has been drifting. The new cabinet as far as can be learned will be as follow: The marquis of .Salisbury, prime minister and secretary of state foi the foreign department; Sir Michael E. Hicks-Beach, chancellor of the exchequer Lord Randolph Churchill, secretary of state for India ; Sir Richard Axsbeion Cro-s, sec retary of state for tbe home department; Rt Hon.

William Henry Smith will prob ably be secretary tor war; CoL Frederics Stanley secretary lor the colonies; the earl of Carnarvon will become viceroy of Ire land, and that Hon. Edward Stanhope will be president of the board of trade. Cologne, June 19. The Kolnische Zai tung says: "The new English cabinet bailed in political circles here with cordialty and confidence. We gladly remind our selves that the marquis of Salisbury has al ways been a friend of Germany and au ad vocate of a closer union with Germany and Austria, thereby presenting a strong contrast to Mr. Gladstone, who has borne himself as a thorough antagonist to both countries. It may bow be taken for granted that the unsettled questions between Kng laud and Uermany will be amicably ar ranged." , Dublin, June 19.

HEIRESS. 3UIT FOR A CHICAGO ESTATE BY A TWO-YEAR-OLD, TVhom the Defease Declare Is a Sort ot Diminutive Feminine Tlehborne A Wealthy Kentucky Girt In ' volved In the Trouble. ! , CHICAOO, June 19 Judge Tuley, of this city, bas a case before bim which has some rather sensational features.- involving, as it is alleged an attempt to secure an e-tate by the production of a false heiress. This Is the case in which Francs! W. Rollar, 9 years old, sues for a portion of the f 13,000 estate left by ber father. The defense claim ing that Mrs. Rollar. through whom the child sues, was never legally married to Mr. Hollar, and that tbe only child born to ber is not now alive. Mrs. Hollar's son, James. youth of not more than 15 years, wearing self-.atisDed smile and a huge rose on tbe lapel of his coat was put on the stand, and created amusement for the spectators by his replies, and particularly tbe expression of his opinions, lie had told his mother there was to be trouble in this case, because there al ways was where a little money was Involved. When the baby was born his mother sent him in haste for a doctor, but the latter was not in. He came back and reported this, and his mother then sent him for Mrs. Thematius, who lived in the same house. and she came in. His testimony closed the jase for tbe plaintiff. The defense then presented a Mrs. Stark, the proprietress ot a lying-in hospital at 299 Fulton street She knew. Mrs. Hollar. In June, 1884, she was keeping a house on Ever green avenue, and Mrs. Hollar called on her. After some preliminary talk, Mrs Rol lar asked ber to come to her house that evening. She did so, and Mrs. Rollar said the wanted a child. Witness told Mrs. Rollar that she had no baby in her house, but thought she could get one. She went to Mrs. Mueller's lying in hospital, on Monroe street near W ood. There was a woman there who was about to become a mother; and a day or two later, June 96, accom panied by ber grand-daughtber, she went to Mrs. Mueller's and got a baby, which was only a few hours old, and, still accompanied by her granddaughter, went back to Mrs. Hollar s and gave her the baby. She asked witness to wash and dress tbe baby in her (Mrs. Hollar's) clothes and not leave any of the other clothe on it at all, and witness did so. Hrs. Rollar said sue wanted a blonde boy, but was contented with the one brought her, who was a blonde glrL The price paid for the little one was f 15. An attempt was made to prove that Mrs. Stark was an abortionist for tbe purpose of discrediting ber testimony, but was not pushed. The witness said there was a mark on the ohild by which she would know it a wart on the right ear aud upon examining the child tbe mark was found. Mrs. Ida Mueller, the keeper of the lying in hospital from which it is claimed the com plainant in the case was procured, took the stand. She said a young lady of probably 28 or 34 came to ber house to be delivered of a child in June, 1833. She gave the name of Luella Heatings, and said she was tbe unmarried daughter ot wealthy and highly connected Kentucky people. She had letters come to the bouse directed to several different names. She gave birth to a blonde baby, which the witness believed to be the com plainant It bad a wart on its right ear. The witness said the child's mother had no ticed the wart and said she would know tbe child if she should ever see it again by 'that mark. Mrs. Mueller thought the wart was much smaller than when the child was born, and some smaller than when she saw it a few months ago. She had re -eived a letter from the child's mother postmarked in Kentucky and signed Mary Calvery, asking after tbe child. She had also seen the woman about two months ago. She was pa-sing through the city on ber way to New York, and called to ak after Luella. Mrs. Mueller then pro duced her records of births and deaths. In this was entered the birth of "Luella Ilea tings, delivered of Jennie He-stings, June "6, 1883." Nellie Collins, 18 yean of age, tbe grand daughter of Mrs. Stark, or Mrs. Vannor- num, corroborated her grandmother's testi mony as to bringing the baby from Mrs. Mueller's to Mrs. RoUar's. She had heard observations regarding the mark on the baby's ear, but bad never seen it Her tes timony showed that she was very mixed on some points. The strongest evidence given against the aleged Mrs. Rollar was by John Wagner, of Buffalo, N. Y. He said he never was so in timate with any one except his own wife as he was with Mr. Rollar, from the time tbey were boys nntil RoUar's death. Rollar died at witnes.' htu-e. Several timet he bad been in company with Hollar and others when Mrs. Hollar was introduced by Rollar Mrs. King, his landlady. He never heard that she was his wife, and witness knew that be was paying attention, not long be fore he died, to a Miss Robeck, and wat thinking ot marrying her. Ont of Their Misery.

Cancer Cured I Mrs. Olive llardmsn, an old resident of Walton county, and a lady of culture snd prominence, has Ibis to say or the treatment of cancer Kith Swift's Specific: Over fifteen years ago s cancer made its appear ance on mv face. It wax treated with plasters, and the core come out. The place healed up after some time, and seemingly my face was well. However in a few years it returned again with more violence than ever, it gave me a great aesi or pain. The former remedy seemed to do It no good. Knowing the dieeae lo run in the family. having had one olater nie wim cancer, i necanie serious v snnrehenMve or mv conaiuon. it con tinued to increase in tire and virulence. 1 almost save no all hone of ever been cured The ohv iciatis advised the ue of the kuife and caustic. This was mere than 1 could hear, and refused to bare It operated upon in that way. All other remedies were aed, but the cancer continued lo trow worse. The pain was excruciating, snd my lire was a nnroen. in mis extremity, my son, ur. Hsrdmsn. recommended me to try Swift's Spe cific. It wss the last resort, but I was so preju diced against the ue of patent medicines, and eppeciailv Ihls one. that 1 hesitated some time. At last 1 gave my consent, not believing tuere wss sny virtue in it. The first bottle only incressed the size of the sore and the discharge from it. and hence did not inspire me with any hoite. On latins ine eecona oouie i acre were signs ot im provement, and my faith strengthened jnst in proportion. 1 used the Specific as a waph in the treatment or mv cancer with remarkahie success 1 spnnired the sorewith the medicine diluted with a little water. It softened the scab, cooled the fate snd relieved the itching sensation. The e st on mv race hegau lo decrease, as well as me die charge, snd hoie sprang up in my heart. Could it lie. 1 attked aivselt. that 1 wss at last lo be re lieved of this disease ! It hss given me so many Haiti hours in me pant mat me meaor being wei sgaiu almost ovenwwered me. There wss scon test between hoite and fear for a long time. II w ss a long night of weeping, hot joy came wiib ine morning, i nere is noimng len to mars me place but a small scar, ami I leel mai u is impos sible for me to express my gratitude for Ihis great deliverance. It is a worioerriii meaicine. Mb- oi.ivs Hakdmsn, Monroe, (is. Jan.il, 1SS5. Swift's Specific is entirely vegetable, snd seemf to enre cancers by forciug out the impurities from -the blood.

Mr. David ClavpooL formerly Sergeant- st-Armsof the New Jersey Senate, and now Notary Public at Cedar vil le, Cumberland Co., N. J., makes the following startling statement: "My father, mother, and three sisters all died. with consumption, and my lungs were so weak I raised blood. Kobody thought I could live. My work (ship siiiitfiingWas very straining on me with my wenk constitution, and I was rapidly going to the grave. While in this condition I commenced using Mishler's Herb Bitters, and it saved my life. Because it was so difficult to get it in this little place, and I had improved so much, I stopped taking it for a time, and the result is that I hi ve commenced going rapidly down hill scam, Somehow, Mishler's Herb Bitters gives appetite and strengthens and builds me up as nothing else docs, and 1 must have s dozen bottles at once. Use this commu nication as you please, and if any one wants to be convinced of its truth, let them write me and I will make affidavit to it, for I owe my life to Mishler's Herb Bitters." The secret of the almost invariable relief and cure of consumption, dysentery, diar- rho-a, dyspepsia, indigestion, kidney and liver complaints, when Mishler's Herb Bitters is used, is that it contains simple, harmless, and yet powerful ingredients, that act on the blood, kidneys, and liver, and through them strengthens and invigor ates the whole system. Purely vegetable . in its composition; prepared by a regular physician ; a standard medicinal prepara tion; endorsed by physicians, ana drug gists. These are fonr strong points in favor of Mishler's Herb Bitters. Mishler's Herb Bitters is sold by all druggists. Price $1.00 per large bottle. 6 bottles for fa.OO.
