FRIDAY JPLY 27. 1S88.
There is a rumor in London that
a woman is at the bottom 'of Parnoll's
prosecution, and the Times bas ob
tained from bar all its information.
There is a belief that she forged the
WnBJT millions of grasshoppers ap
peared near St Paul, Minn., threaten
ing the total destruction of crops, a
reward of a SI a bushel was offered
for their arrest and detention. This
is an instance where a glut in the
market enhances the price.
Tnc Czar of Russia is a great fish
erman, and he has just bought in Fin
land a tract of land with a river
swarming with salmon. His imper
ial wife is also a fair fly caster, and
can manage a wicked fish with ease
and grace. But the Czar never caught
shad at Astoria.
TnE San Francisco Examiner says
wherever you find a man who is
profiting by a trust that is skinning
the people, you will find a man who
is supporting Harrison and Morton.
This is the first intimation we've had
that senator standard oil Payne of
Ohio, was supporting the Republican
The thing needful to be understood
is that this is a country in which a
man is perfectly free to aid in making
the law, perfectly free to obey it, per
fectly free to depart to other coun
tries, and perfectly certain to be pun
ished if he choose to stay here and
disobey the law. That is the lesson
that needs learning just now.
Congressman Beckinridge, Demo
crat, speaking of the campaign just
opening, says: "Each side realizes
the fact that this is to be a fight of
principle, not stinging declarations.
If we are defeated it will mean that
the mass of the people prefer high
taxes. If we win it will mean tha tthe
Mills' bill as a preliminary step to
free trade is all right It is a victory
or a "Waterloo for the Republicans; it
it is a victory or a twenty years set
back for us."
Admitting for argument's sake
that the sugar duty is protective, the
people are taxed 60,000,000 a year
upon a necessity in order to "protect"
an industry whose total annual pro
duct is $6,000,000. And it is not a
new industry which promises a vast
growth under the the tariff and great
benefits in the future, but both it and
the duty are old, and the product of
the article is scarcely half what it was
thirty years ago, although the con
sumption of it has immensely in
creased. The people could better
afford to have sugar put upon the
free list and give them as a gratuity,
S6,000,000 a year to maintain the plant
ers in splendid idleness. If wo accept
the theory that unnecessary taxation is
simple robbery, the people would save
over 350.000,000 by this transaction
and avoid the dangers of the surplus.
Last Tuesday was "pardoning day"
with Gov. Peunoyer, and he com
muted the sentences of two peniten
tiary prisoners. One of the cases is,
let us hope, an unusual one. It was
that of one John M. Culp, who was
sentenced on December 14th, 1884,
by tha circuit court for Douglas
county to serve a sentence of twelve
years for manslaughter. And now,
when nearly four yejirs of the sen
tence is served, the leading witness
whose testimony sent Culp to prison,
comas forward and makes affidavit
that he "testified falsely." It cer
taiuly seems that even the modified,
lax style of "justice" that we adminis
ter here should take cognizance of this
matter and put this creature in 'his
victim's place in the penitentiary for
at least the same time that the un
fortunate Culp had already served.
Culp evidently was not cnlpable.
Some years ago a musical enter
tainment of some note was given iu
the city of Raleigh, North Carolina.
The Biblicnl Recorder, then bril
liantly edited by brother John H.
Mills, sharply criticised the perform
ance. The musical director, we be
lieve, undertook tho perilous task of
replying to brother Mills in the Re
corder, and, in the course of his re
ply, said that the music was better
than the editor could have produced.
The editorial rejoinder was crushing:
"Our correspondent's statement is
true but irrelevant All the grocers
in Raleigh could not together produce
one egg; but there is not a grocer of
them who is not a bettor judge of
ggs than any hen iu Wake county."
This has always struck ns as one of
the keenest, neatest and most exhaus
tive repartees that we ever read.

A Mystery In a Small Chicago Hotel.
(SrECIAL TO TUB ASTOBIAK.)
Stapleton, New Jersey, July 20.
Joseph F. Stickney'a steam yacht Si is
quehanna left this morning for
Adams express Co's pier Jersey city,
where president Cleveland and wife,
were to board her, for a four days
cruise as guests of Mr. Stickney.
The trim yacht was covered with
bunting from stem to stern, great se
crecy was observed, about tho presi
dent's plans. Tho employes of the
White house are under special in
structions to say nothing on the
subject From other sources how
ever it was learned that the president
and postmaster-general would take a
short yachting trip from New York,
in company with a few friends who
would join them at this city.
Tho trip would last two or three
days. The president said before leav-
ing that he would be at the "WhiteH
house again on Tuesday morning.
Mrs. Cleveland and Mrs. Folsom were
to leave the party at New York and
continue on to Marion, Mass.. where
they remain several days, probably as
guests of Mr. Gilder, the editor of the
venwry magazine. Secretary Whit
ney intended to have accompanied
the president but gave up the trip at
the last moment.
WAS IT SUICIDE?
Chicago, July 2G, Robert Hender
son, Silver City, Idaho, said to be a
millionaire, was found this morning
in a room at a little hotel called the
Ogden House, unconscious and
barely alive. The gas in the room
had been blown ont instead of turned
off. It was first thought that Hen
derBon had climbed on a chair and
extinguished the light in the primi
tive way absent-mindedly or because
he was (intoxicated. The fact how
ever, that a man of so much wealth
as Henderson was represented to
possess, should put up at a compara
tively inferior out-of-the-way place,
created suspicion. Then it was stated
that Henderson was himself the pro
prietor of alarge well appointed hotel
and would be extremely unlikely to
unthinkingly blow out the gas. The
ories or foul play and attempted sui
cide are evolved. Henderson re
mained in a comato?e state for hours,
notwithstanding the efforts of tho
physicians, and nothing could be
learned from him. The doctors arc
unable to say whether or not he

Cleveland, left this morning by rail
for Now York; ho was accompanied by
Mrs. Cleveland, Mrs. Folsom, and
The Bustle Banished.
"Tlie nso and fall of the bustle is
far more interesting to women of the
present day than any topic that can
be discussed," said the head of tho
dressmaking department of a large
store in this city on Saturday. "My.
now tne bustle did rise. It grew like
a watermelon under a hot summer
sun. Indeed it was beginning to be
a question as to

coon. But the bird cage is doomed.
It must go. Dolly Yardens went,
Gainsborough hats wont, and so does
everything of that sort. People are
continually panting for something
new. Tho bustle had its uses. It
gave the thin girls an air of seeming
stoutness, and it was used to make
the dresses set well. It was a first
rate affair to take the weight of heavy
dresses off a womam's hips. But
when the girls began to wear tho
bustles half way up their backs peo
ple began to get alarmed. It made
the dear creatures appear like minia

it topped tho bushel basket. Now it

it will be gone entirely.

good thing for tho women of this
country. With a wave of the hand
she has wiped tho bustles off tho
fashion plates. Indeed, it is really

the president's wifo shonld'take the
matter in hand. But she has douo so.

London. July 26. A German author
Clotten was arrested for threatening
to murder Gladstone. Clotten, when
questioned by the police, said ho had
sent the manuscript of a story to

she read it When he asked for a

had been mislaid and could not be

boy rollicks over a stack of fresh hay,

too seriously, aro to glum, down
hearted, rheumatic and crotchety,

Reducing the Surplus.
The disposition ot the Surplus in the
U. S. Treasury engages the attention of
our Statesmen, but a more vital question
has our attention, and that is tiie reduc
tion of the Surplus Consumptives. Since
the discovery and introduction of Dr.
King's New Discovery for Consump
tion, there has been a marked decrease
in the mortality from this dreaded dis
ease, and it is possible to still further re
duce the number of Consumptives.
How? l$y keeping constantly at hand
