Monday. Mat 13, 1890. A Thlweae Wail." From the Dubaqne Telegraph. The editor of the Century Mas-azine.Mr R. W. Gilder, has written a letter to the lew York Tribune, in which he com aends the ways and means committee for proposing to abolish the present duty of winy per cent on woiks of art, and urge that an international copyright law oe passed at the same time. The Jnt tine. In an editorial commenting opon it. approves of Mr. Gilder's suggestion to conple the two propositions, and says: One of his pungent sentences might wirely be blazoned before the eyes of every member of both houses of congress. as an indictment to which this great na tion should be no longer obliged to plead guilty. "We steal foreign literature, and put up a Chinese wall azainst freign paintings and statues." Happily, works of art are transferred to the free list in the McKinley tariff bill, and are likely to remain there. This, in the estimation of the New York Stnndtird. pounds like an outburst of the old free tre.de enthusiasm of Mr . Grosvenor, one of the editors of the Tribur.e. "A Chinee wall against for eign paintings and statues!" "A Chi nese wall!" Think of it! The Trib une admits that the tariff is "a Chi nese wall." The Tribune, founded by Florare Greelev and edited b White law Kcid ! A tariff. too,.of only thirty per cent is "a Chinese wail. Could the rank est free trader say more? A thirty per cent duty on foreign paintings and stat uesthings that the rich people, and the rich people only can afford to buy is a Chinese wall that keeps these good things out and prevents the rich and cultured from enjoyiDg them. The McKinley bill puts them on the free list, and therefore the Tribune is glad. Let the workingmen of America, the great body of consumers, note the admis sion, and remember it for all time. Thirty percent on foreign paintings and statues, according t j the high priests of protection, constitutes "a Chinese wall" peventing their admission, yet a tariff, ranging in some instances from 30 to 120 per cent is levied on the necessaries of life, increasing the cost of every article of consumption, whether at home or abroad. We joio heartily with the people who want, and who properly demand, the free admission of foreign paintings and statues, but how can those who admit the propriety f f tins demand insist on a tariff on the tin that enters into the workman's dinnet pail, on the coal that warms bU hearth aod cooks his food, on the woolen cloth that con stitutes bis clotliinc, and the wool from which the clo'h is made? Against all these things the Tribune asks that "a Chinese wall' may be built higher and higher, for it is rot possible for it, now it has accepted the free trade definition when applied to a tariff on art. to draw and deny that the higher tariff on the necessities of life also erects "a Chinese wall" against other importation. Does the Tribune imagine that the American people will much longer consent to the continuance of a policy that monstrously increases the cost of living to the great mass of men by a tariff averaging forty- seven per cent and hastens to take a tar iff of thirty per per cent off works of art because it constitutes "a Chinese wall" that, by enhancing their cost, prevents their importation into the United States? floeof the Fectival. The M. . May festival which was the attraction for so many all last week, closed Saturday night. The fair proved a great success, the net profits being about $1,200. For the concluding enter tainment the "Dairy Maids' Supper" of Tuesday night's programme was repeated to the delight of an Immense audience. Prof. John Biebl also playing a very fine claronet solo. The ladies of the M. E. church should feel proud of the way their efforts have been crowned both as to the success of the various attractions and the patronage on the part of the public. Saturday night an artistic picture drapery, with hand painting by Miss Katherine Dares and given by her to the ladies of the Japanese booth, was pre sented to Mrs. J. F.

A number of houses were unroofed and otherwise damaged, and the eccentricity of the cyclone was never more fully illus trated. One house would lose its roof or have a portion torn to pietes, and other wise be left unharmed, while the neit one to it would be reduced to kin dling wood. Two or Jfiree houses were: lifted from their foundations, turned tip- j side down, and left comparatively whole, others were turned entirely round on theit foundations. One residence was smashed flat, as if a tremendously heavy weight had been dropped upon it. Another house had the dining-room torn off at a time when nine persons were sitting at table. It was carried fifty feet and dropped, the oc cupants being all more or less injured, but none fatally hurt. Mr. Herman's Narrow Fsrape. This was tiebhart Herman's hons.

You are, therefore, positively instructed r.ot to receive any such compen sation yourself, nor counteni.nceforone in stant the payment of any sum of money whatever by municipalities, corporations, associations, or persons to enumerators. Any supervisor of census v. ho is not con tent withthe remuneration iJlowedby law (which is double the amount paid in 1SS0) should at once resign. No t'enkus Skullduggery To Be Tolerated. "The Eleventh census mutt and ahall I above suspicion. To tolerate any action on the part of municipalities associations, organizations or individuals, no matter how powerful they may ), which has for its purpose the debauch ng, or which would even throw the slightest taint upon the truthfulness of the retu-ns would, in my opinion, lie nothing short of a crime against the people of the United States."

A protest from the Indians of Indian territory was presented in the senate Sat nrdny against numerous grants of riKbts- f-way for rail ways through tkeir lands, on the ground that the said railways were merely specu lat i ve.

The pa jhts devote a good deal of space to Mr. Train, but seem quite puzzled as to his proper classification whether among the geniuses or the cranks of America. The former rating is insisted upon by some writers, who remember him as the brilliant inventor and orator of days gone by, and who remind us that we are indebted to him for our tram car system; while less favorable com ments are made by others who can not convince themselves that the genial philo sopher's expressions of Anarchistic senti ments should le condoned. All agree, at least, that in his present enterprise he is likely to succeed in lieating all previous reeortis. AFRICA MAY MAKE TROUPLE. The Confll.-tinjt Interests In the Dark Con tinent A t'onjfress Wanted. 1,ONDox, May 12. A congress of those European powers which have territorial possessions in Africa is rapidly becoming a necessity, if Hcrious complications and troubles are to be avoided. There are all the elements of a great outbreak in the seizure and parceling out of terri tory which is going on in that conntry, often in defiance of distinct lines of limita tion and treaty obligations. Some of these conflicts of interest have undoubted ly arisen out of imperfect maps which leave important lines of demarcation in ques tion, but they are too frequently traceable to a spirit of aggression which threatens mischief. itiinrulty or Making a "IivTy." The partition of an imperfectly explored conntry like this central region of Africa is an undertaking beset with many diffi culties and perils. Great Britain, Ger many, Portugal, Belgium, France and Italy are all more or less concerned in what is taking place there, and each has interests which it is anxious to protect. The f rict ion which lately arose between England and Portugal was only an illus tration of what may occur at any moment between other powers that may seek to ex pand their possessions in Africa, A Rather Caustic Article.

MURDER MOST FOUL A Sickenirg Discovery Made Near Indianapolis. FISHES FEEDING ON A MAN'S BODY. The Corpse Cut to Pieces anil Burled la the Sand of a Creek, the Different Tarts Being Held Down by Wires Possibility That It May be the Remains of a Mis sing Real Estate Man An' Investigation on Foot. Indianapolis, May 13. The evidences of a horrible crime were discovered yester day afternoon in the bed of Eagle creek, two miles west of the city, and it is not improbable that the victim may prove to be Abraham Clincs, the real es-tate dealer, who disappeared so mysterionsly ten days ago. Iile in the afternoon Samuel Hens ley and some companions were walking along the bank of Eagle creek when their attention was att-acted by a lare nuinler of fishes, which apjieared to lie feeding upon a large mass of ftc-.li which lay part ly buried in the sand. They waded out into the water, and upon closer examina tion, found that the !ih were feeding upon the fleshy part of a human face, nearly all of which hail lieen eaten otT. Some Diabolical Ingenuity. An attempt to pull the head from the water revealed the fact that small slakes had been driven iutothesnnd around it, and wires had been stretched across the face ami fastened to the stakes in such a manner as to hold it down. After consid erable effort, the head was released from the wires, and it was taken to the bank. It had la-en separated from the Ixxly near the shoulders, ami was almost devoid of flesh. Enough remained, however, to show that t he head had leeu in the water but a short time, as the flesh bad not lie Come putrid, and threw oil but little odor after lieing exposed to the air. The Remainder of the Body Found. Returning to the stream the Idds con tinued their explorations in the sand bar and soon discovered the chest and arms, from which the flesh had also lieen eaten by fish. This part of the Ixxly had been separated from the lower extremities just above the hips, and the latter were found a short distance away, also partly buried in the sand, aud with the most of the flesh gone. A round each of these separate parts a uumlM-r of stakes had Ik-cii driven deep into the sand, and w ires ls stretched lie tween them, so as to keep the remains from rising in the water. No Cine to the Indetitity. The indications were that, after deposit ing the parts of the body in the water, coverings of sand were put upon them and then the stakes were driven into the bed of the creek and the win stretched across. The hair bad nearly all been washed off by the action of the water, the fish had preyed upon the flesh from the up per part and only the side next to the 1ank of the creek was untouched. When the parts of the lxwly were placed together upon the bank they showed that the man, in life, had lieen alout five feet nine inches tall, and weighed alsnit 1MI or V.K) pounds. There was no clothing or anything near to indicate that the Iwdy was clothed when taken to the creek, and the jiarties who placed it there left no clue as far as could be discovered. The oroncr's Opinion. Coroner Wagner visited the scene In-fore the remains were taken to the morgue, but was able to make only a cursory exami nation, owing to the lateness of the hour.
