Ornttftetl i?y tlu Prnyers or the Pious, mu
Elating Everything Like Hypocrisy.
( Washington Latter to Pittsburg Leader.)
"A very lingo per rent, ol' I ho peo
ple throughout tho country seem to be
bent on evangelizing President Cleve
land," observed ono ol tho Chief Ex
ecutive's most intimate friends to-day.
"Mi. Cleveland was telling me the
other day thal he sometimes thought
lhere was an impression lu the minds
of too many '..omi folks that he pro
sent ?da tine opportunity for thc mis
sionaries. 1 asked him why he thought
so and he laughingly replied: 'Oh,
if tho ttdvleo give.e was concen
trated on Africa, it would civilize and
Christianize that whole wild and
wicked and dark country.' I had lu
laugh, for lhere was HO much serious,
ness and yoi th y humor in it all.
Cleveland realizes, as he is reminded
so often and so forcibly, that in a cer
tain way he sets au example to the
world, but it worries him a little, I
can sec, to be told by hundreds of peo
ple, sometimes in one week, thal he
ought to lei bis light so shine, etc. ile
beuevo* that these people must tl ink
bc is very wicked, or else that bois
Hie guardian ?d' tilly million of people.
Speaking of this point he said to mc:
'A President or king or other high and
national officer should recognize the
supreme power in every act committed.
A man or woman should never gol RO
exalted as to fail lodo this. Now, lew
publie men have as little opportunity
to disseminate personal views as I
have. If I were cv? r so anxious to
make people bulievo 1 was thc embodi
ment ol' goodness it would bc up-hill
work to create that impression, for a
President cannot cry his wares from
the housetops. If ibis advice about
being a Christian and all thal, coming
in every form and from every direc
tion, is for my own guidance, very
well, lt ii is to chango thc general
course of my public career, it is ?ll
given. One thin,: I am bound shall
never bc inaile -the charge that 1 was
a hypocrite. I bk?: Christians; (hoy
arc the stilt of tho carib. A hypocrite,
lo my mind, is the basest ot .?inners.'"
"The President must be a little an
noyed by these importunities, is he
not?" I asked. "Not in thu least. On
thc contrary, lie i-, grail lied for thc
interest shown in him, if it is respect
fully shown. Ho doesn't scotti to com
prehend the fad that all Presidents
have had to withstand Ibis ordeal.
The letters he receives arc not. thc only
evidence given him of a desire that ho
shall bc a moral until. You would be
surprised how many Christian people
breathe, tin audible prayer for him,
llOWOVOI, when they grasp bis hand,
and it. all has ti very perceptible effect
upon Mr, Cleveland, for he said bc
didn't think any man or woman willi
souse and ti heart (amid fail to bo
atfectod bj thc prayers of an earnest
people, when he or sh?! knew they
were so constantly delivered, 'lt is
something like ?ove ?ti its physical
effect,' said Mr. Cleveland one day.
'Now, if one is very earnestly anti
sincerely loved that affection is sure, ?I
kept up and demonstrated, to have ?ts
way, unless thc suitor is absolutely
offensive. Th?! more fact that so much
confidence and affection is persistently
bestowed will touch a heart of stone.
So thc intens?; interest shown by so
many in a luau's spiritual welfare must
cventii.dly touch him, it bc thinks.
And thc man or woman who cannot
bc rcachcil by thc prayers of a nation
is a strange being Indeed.'" "In his
private life do you think the President
observes any standard ol' Christian
i ty ?" "Yes, ho does. In ?di my inter
course with him I ?lo not remember to
have heard him say anything im
proper. Ile sometimes becomes very
much perplexed, but bc doesn't swear
about it. dr. Cleveland believes thal
honor between man and man is thc
foundation of Christianity; thal tildes*
one tells the truth ami pays bis thies
he can lay no claim lo morality."

A Curious Mild interesting Incident lu tho

Tho BUbjcot of proscnthuont concern
ing death and fatality in families
spoken of in Hancock's case recalls
sonic sad points in thc Bayard history.
Kew families have been more depleted
by Budden death tliuii tho Hayards,
und in many instances there have bocu
lorowaruings and presentiments. It is
said (hut Miss Bayard wrote a letter
indicating her approaching death.
There ure now in Washington many
old naval officers who remember thc
interesting circumstance attending tho
death of Miss Bayard's cousin, (.Miarles
C. Bayard, at Mount Vesuvius, ile

flt lld' said, when he heard that the
Congress was taken: "Then doc is

whom yennil Bavard afterwards went
to Jerusalem to visit tho Holy Sepul

of tho circumstances leading to the
tra yod y at Carrollton, Mississippi, yes
terday and of tho tragedy itself.
The trouble begun some months ugo
in a slight altercation between a white
mau named Moori! and a colored man
named Brown. J. M. Liddell,a friend

to Brown's treatment of Mooro in
W ll leo Liddell struck Brown with his
(Lt, and was shot in thc elbow by
Brown, and was fired al by several
Other colored men. In the further
course of this difficulty Liddell was
shot a second^limo and two colored
men were shot slightly. Following
tins the negroes made affidavits agni list
Liddell and others, charging them
willi asaault with intent lo murder.
These cases caine up yesterday for
trial, ami were called at noon, when
thc Courthouse was immediately lilied
with negroes who stationed themselves
ai onad and about the Brown brothers.
Thc attorneys were proceeding with

tion of Liddell, who was between his
attorneys. Thereupon the tiring be

through widows a distance of at least,
twenty feet fi om the ground. On
most of thc dead bodies arms were
found. The room was completely till

thirty shot boles. One shot struck tho
northeast window sasli and glanced
into tho wall. Five others show on

Ait exciting and dramatic incident
occurred here last. week. Sunday
nun uing two men rode into town.
Their i cimii kable appearance at once
attracted thu attention ot' every one.
Tbey were covered with mud and
carried u perfect arsenal ol' rifles, pis
tols and knives w Ith thom. One was a
mau over IK', with long gray bair, and
blood in bis eye; thc other was a man
Ol'30 years, built like a giant and
wearing a terrible scowl on his lace.
They were lather and son, William
Wo flo rd and Sam Wollert], from the
backwoods ol' Matagorda county. The
old man said bc was looking tor his
.Marter Kate," who bad "lit out"' willi
ber cousin, Hill Welford. The lather
and son localed the runaway couple,
who were occupying a small Usher?
man's tent half a mile outside of the
town. When old Welford found out
the location of his erring "darter" a
large crowd ol curious men and boys
followed Uno tcrrib'e-looking pair to
thc vicinity of thc tent, as the old man
kept continually examining Iiis gun
and saying: "Sam, I'm go'on to kill
lum, suab !" AH they neared the tent
the crowd fell hack, while the old man
and his giant soi approached with
rides in hand. Suddenly thc lian of
thc tent was violently thrown open
from thc inside ami there stood Hill
and Kate, each holding a terrible Win
chester rifle-one covering Ibu old

wild beasts on the brave lovers and
Hill called out: "Do you s'poso I'm
gone to give her up arter wc done

man and Sam, under cover of thc
SUggCStlvo Winchesters, slowly moved
back, all the lime lacing the boy Hill
and his Kate, who had thc drop on
them. Meantime a courier bad gone
to town for a license and a preacher,
and aller nearly two hours, during
which time Hill and Kate never look

During thc eeremonoy the bride

Thc preacher was so afraid they would

After thc marriage thc old man deliv
ered a terrible otll'SO Oil both said ho
would sparc their lives now, provided
they never sot foot in Matagorda

shook his long, dirty yellow locks ami

The change in thc temper of parlies
in the House toward home rule is due
to a profound change in thc constitu
ent (dement ol thc House of Couinions
itself. The new Parliament is essen
tially an assembly of working men, in
thc souse that ?ts members attend seri
ously lo their business. Thc Scotch,
Welsh and English Democratic mein
bcrs emulate by their constant and
unremitting attention thc Irish mem
bers, ?iud except for the hours neces
sary for sleep they seem always pres
ent. Hours before the House meets
they aro in the library attending to
correspondence. A tier 4, when tho
business begins, they seem to be always
on band until 2, ?l and even 1 o'clock
in thc morning, when thu House ad
journs. The old lime aristocratic dill'
nor hours hare been abolished. "Counts
out" aro things of the past. There ?6
no moro talking to empty honchos. At
nil hours there is an audience for any
one having nnything to suv worth
listening to, and what is equally Im
portant, au audience ready promptly
to suppress bores. The Government
hus lost its grip over mouthers. The
word "ministers" ls no lowror a law.
Ancient ctiquelte and precedent arc at
a discount. Thc new men arc the
masters, and they will not stand any
nonsense. Tliey vote against thc min
istry with refreshing independence.
Already they have established a Par
liamentary reign ol terror in a mild
way. Ministers ure compelled tb he.
consistent. They no longer dare lo
follow the old tillie custom ot siieaking
in office ugafiiHt tho reform? they ad
vocated hi opoosltioii. The slightest
indication of a di?|>osi(iou to do so
immediately provokes ominous howls
of dissent and dissatisfaction. Old
time politicians aro in dismay. Whig
and Tory aliko fonr thut with tho next
Parliament will come the deluge.
