ENGLISHMEN IN AMERICA ! How the English Youth ia Transforms ; ! into a Good American Citizen. HE PRIDE OF NOBLE AN CESTRY fin Odd Applicant The Powerful In * stuonco or American Gnitoint Education in an Over stocked Market. Written for the Omaha n < t. "By Jove , dear boy , I took the conceit 6ut of him then. " Such was the windup - up of a rather nmuslng story told mo the other day by a young Englishman who had not yet boon long enough associated .f with Uncle Sam to have the "dom non- nonso" taken out of him. Fresh from Ills ancestral halls , but minus thn ances tral wealth , it had , alas , bcoomo a neces sity far him to work. "Just think of it. " J > ho said , "a man of my rank and blood J applying to a butcher for work. You BOO , ho had advertised in the HBK for a smart .young fellow to work in a store , and , IIH I corao of a brainy family , and consider myself fairly smart , I donned my now I'rinco Albert coat and silk hat , nnd wended my way to the address given. Distrust is not exactly the word to express my feelings when , after walk ing some live miles , I found it was A IIUTCIIKK'S KSTAHUSHMENT. and cynical fulls far short of the mark to qualify the smile that rippled around the broad Atlantic of the worthy butcher's countenance as ho looked mo over and asked me had 1 killed much beef in ray time. Shades of my illustrious ancestors , ho asked mo was 1 a killer of beef ? I re- Elicd not much beef was a commodity I ad occasionally caton. but scorned to kill. I was about leaving when ono of these happy thoughts that sometimes strike a fellow , you know , occurred tome mo , so I accosted him again : Look hero , r mister butcher , did you over hear ot John Drydcn ? No ? Then you never read the lines in Alexander's feast And thrice he routed nil his foes , ; , , And thrlco he slew the slain. " " Don't read nonsense , oh ? Now don't you really think that killing beef is some what akin to slowing the slain ? It was a hard thrust and I hoard him mutter something about cranks , but that was because hojnust have felt so humiliated , you know. < Such , with the vernacular omitted was the story of how ho "took the conceit out of" the festive butcher. Poor fellow S ho did not know that it was this same conceit that was the stumbling block that stood in the way of his accepting the iirst honest work that offered and thus assorting his manhood. Uo had not yet ascertained that rillDB AND POVT.ItTY , however much tlit.y may commend them selves to the English mind , are of but little value hero. It is to such men as my John Drydcn friend that , on first arrival , America is a surprise. Horn of "good family" nnd raised in the lap of luxury , they have been accustomed to regard anything in the shape of manual labor as degrading nnd all who engage in It as infinitely be neath them. Unco landed in this country the democratic phase of our institutions , manners and customs break upon them in the light of u revelation. They iind little to remind them of England and everything to impress them'with the idea that here men are not valued neither for the clothes they wear or the family they belong to. Yankees take a strong nnd just pride in the pedigree of their horses and rattle but strange to say they have no such retro spective interest with regard to the "rais ing" of their fellow citizens. That sucli a state of affairs should exist is "exces sively annoying , you know , " and many are tbo epithets Hung at Uuclo Sam's .unoffending head. EYEKYTIIING SEEMS HEVEIISED. , > In England they do not asseciato with - workingmen ; in America the workingmen - men regard them as nobodies and as Bucli pass them by. To say , however , that such men have not the making of good citizens in them would bo going too far. Many cases have como under my notice where young fol lows of the duilish order have gono- through the the mill of hard work and eventually turned out good and useful as well as prosperous men. After a resi dence of a your or two under American influences tnoir eyes are gradually opened to tbo fallacies of the English social sys tem and on the "video melioraproboqno" principle their ideas undergo a radical chango. To the educated Englishman , that is , the man who rises above snobbery , ' too , America is at tirst a disappointment. Crossing tbo Atlantic with all these HOPES AND ASl'IKATIONS that generally accompany a man to a new country , and buoyed up by the knowledge that ho has received a univer sity education ho imagines that ho will have little diflloully in getting ahead. Uo llttio thinks that in coming to Amer ica ho brings his education to a market that la already overstocked. : It was my privilege while In Boston to \i \ meet , as well as to be of some assistance to a young Englishman who had come to this country shortly after having com- 'plotud a distinguished course at Oxford. Already he bad been m the city eight I months , and during all that time he told imo that he hnd assiduously searched for j work in almost every capacity , but with out any success whatever. When apoiy- for a posistion for which his educa- j suited hiia , ho was met with such re plies as , "you are not acquainted with the city , " v'we acknowledge your ability , but wo want a local man , " etc. On the other hand ho was unfitted for manual labor , and his efforts in that di rection wore alike unavailing. When I met him his money was nearly all gono. : ? Ho wJs . KATIIEU DISCOUIIAGEI > . but plucky and philosophic through all liis troubles. "Thorn is my diary , " ho said , "you can see what I have boon through. " I opened it and road his pro ceedings of the day before : Monday no luck. Came homo at 5 o'clock an had supper bread nnd water. Fell into a meditative humor nnd wondered if there was such a thing us HU acquired taste for water , and if so , what length of time would elapse in the process of acquisition. It doesn't suit my palate at present writing. My books nearly all gene , but thank heaven , lantes Inferno still remains ; it ia the only volume that oflVrs me any solid en joyment. " A short interview served lo show mo that the man was "able" and worlhy of encouragement. 1 accordingly introduced him to a few literary men , and ere lone ho was engaged in the trans lation of a dor man volume for one of tbo publishers , Englishmen of this latter class gener ally liiid U hard to procure the necessary Btart , but once this is accomplished they seldom full to take advantage of it.

Now York Sun : The one subject of which piano dealers and piano manu facturers and workmen in piano factories have benn talking for the past few days is the piano said to uo on its way to America for Air. Henry G. Marquand , with five figures following the dollar mark in the invoice thus : $10.1130. No such price as f-lO.OJO was over paid for a piano before , but no prophet will venture to say that no 0110 will ever pay so much ogam. "What do you think about such a piano ? " said a reporter to an up-town music dealer. "Had you arrived at the ago of matur ity before the warof the rebellion began , " said the dealer , "and you had been of a cynical disposition at that time , you would have been interested , not to say astounded , nt the largo sums of money paid as income taxes by men in this town. It gave one notoriety to pay a large income - como tax , and no ono was debarred from paying as good a tax as ho chose. Per- bans a piano could bo built with that sum , but it would have to bo inlaid with gold and have the monogram sot in diamonds mends bcforo the bill could honestly call for half as much as that. " "What , then , do the elegant pianos of the men of great wealth cost ? " "Ordinarily from $1,500 to $2,000. Mrs. Jay Gould bought ono recently that cost $2,500. , It was an upright grand and just as line an instrument in everything that goes to make a piano as ever loft the fac tory of one of the heat known makers in the city. C. P. Huntington has recently purchased a piano. His cost $2,01)0 ) , while Judge Hilton , another millionaire , got one not long ago for which ho paid a little more , $3,200,1 bcliovo. Nowthese instruments were the very best the work men could produce. The builders know , of course , that it would help them to sell line pianos to other families if such people as these had their inako of instru ments. The choicest woods , seasoned to the exact dot , wore used in the cases ; extra quality cloth worth $18 a yard , where the ordinarystufT used is worth trom $5 to $10 , went to the actions : the very was selected from perhaps a nun. dred diil'ercnt tusks , and so on from the casters under the legs to the varnish on top , everything was the best. The mono grams wore worked out in gold or an tique metal , or some other expensive stud' , and when the instruments were set up in the parlors of the purchasers them was a richness to the tones that would enchant anyone. And the tone was there to remain ; such an instrument will last wonderfully. But , after all , you can got just an good an instrument , ono with pre cisely the same tones and ono that will ust just as well , for less than half the money uald by Mr. Gould. "Still more expensive pianos can bo made. They have boon made that cost as high as $5,000. The late Captain James 1) . Eads , the Mississippi jetty man , had such an instrument. Ingersoll , the chair manufacturer , had ono that cost $1,500 , and It was an honpst price. To build such a piano takes a gre.it deal of time ; fifteen months is nnt too much to devote to the building of the case. The wood , to begin with , may bo South Amer ican walnut , or San Domingo mahogany , or Turkish ; walnut , or genuine ebony. The cases will be made of solid wood , and the woods will bo seasoned by the most careful processes. Then the carver takes hold , nnd by hand works out an elaborate design. The design may bo his own or the maniisacturcrs or thu fu ture owner may pay some famous sculp tor , or other artist , for some beautiful design. These items of cost mount up , but after all they are items in the cost of i piece of furniture rather than the terns properly chargeable to a piano. The'piano that produces the best mnsic does not require such elaborate ornamen tation , lugersoll's piano , us I recollect seeing it in the factory finishing room , had elaborate carved work standing out more than eighteen inches on each side of the case It was an upright grand. "Pianos , as such , are somewhat cheaper than they used to bo , say 00 per cent cheaper. A piano that has as perfect tones as any over made can bo had for $700 , retail price , in a plain case. A few years ago the same instrument would have been worth $1,000. Bui while these instruments have grown cheaper , there is an increasing number sold for better prices than over. This demand conies out of the necessity of making the piano match the other furniture in the room where it is placed. It is usual nowadays for the rich men to give the house furn isher an order to furnish the house throughout.That order includes the pianos. The manufacturer of furniture will procure the bust designs from the most capable artists for every article of furniture and interior decoration , and consequently the grand piano in the corner blonds har moniously with the musio rack on ono side , , the picture frame above , a.nd the carpet on the floor. Pianos are made with white and gold cases with silver monograms ; they are made of ebony , inlaid with beaten brass , and of San Domingo mahogany and ancient bronze. "Piano manufacturers very often got orders to furnish the inside of a piano , while the house furnisher provides the case. That was the way the pianos for the Vanderbilt mansions were made. But with all the spociol designs and the elaborate hand earring in the best solid woods and the slow process of pulling the case together and the great length of time devoted to polishing and varnishing and varnishing again , I never know a piano to honestly cost more than $5,000. "Every manufacturer will be glad to bear of this new piano at $40,050 ; so will the well known painters and other artists of the country. If we must not only have the case harmonize with the sofa , but must have a picture on the cover painted .to match some Moissonicr on the wall overhead , the prices of instruments and the commissions of middlemen will bo augmented and an era of prosperity and culture will ensue , "Tho prices of which I have spoken are what wo call list prices. They are prices printed in the descriptive circular. Many people pay those prices , but if one knows enough lie will pay about ono half. The list price is generally about double the fair retail price. II is regularly one- third more. City people do not always learn this but in the country where agents are constantly going up and down seeking customers the prices usu ally got down to hard pay.

LS , ENGLISH POSTAL TELEGRAPH The Advantage of Having all Telegraph Lines Under Government Control , HOW THE LINES AR MANAGED , An Interview With I , C , Jjninbn , As sistant Postmaster General of Great Britain An Ef ficient System. LONDON , Sept. 10. [ Correspondence of the UEE. ] ( n view of the agitalion in the United States congress of the subject of postal telegraphy , and the probability that action will.bo taken upon it at t ho approaching session , there can bo noth ing of greater interest to Americans just at this moment than the telegraph system of the British government , m connection with its mail service , inasmuch as the service to bo given jn the United States is to be patterned after that In this coun try. try.Twice Twice has the senate of the United States passed bills within the last throe or four years providing that the govern ment shall buy those existing or construct new telegraph lines , and operate at a uniformyl low tariff for the masses ; and the proposilion has gene so far as lo re ceive the favorable consideration of the committee having it in charge in the house of representatives. Mr. Edmunds , who is championing the subject in the senate , said to mo only a few weeks ago that he believed the present con gress would take favorable action , and that the agitation of the subject would commence very soon after con gress convened in December next. For Hie purpose of buing able to tell all about postal telegraph hero and to applv it as far as possible lo the United States , 1 have spent a couple of days in thu post- oilico department of Great Britain , talk ing with Ike principal officers , visiting the general oporaling rooms , Inlopf lew- ing the practical men and convolving with the patrons. The English government nOUallT THE TKLEKIUril LIKES in the Uniled Kingdom in Fobrtiary,1870 , and has had a complete monopoly of the service over since and the ollieiala and the people are more than satistioil with it. Among the others of the general gov ernment with whom I have talked on this .subject was Mr. J. C. Lauibcwhose rank equals thut of second assistant postmas- ' .or goncral in America , who has diplo matic supervision of thu transmission of mails and telegrams , who is an excepti onally intelligent oflicial and I will let 'ihn tell of the service us he told it to me : If the government of the United States undertakes to furnish a telegraph service and I llnnk it should it ought to have Ihc monopoly of it , and give Iho people the benefit of the monopoly ; other- .vise . Ihc rival companies will let the gpv- jrnnic'tit do the work where it docs not jay , without opposition , and by cutting rates in the densely populated sections secure all of Iho patronage there , and therefore the cream of Iho service. With a free field to all sorts of rivalry and private - vato corporations a government would not bo able to make the service solf-stis- tuining , and the sooner the govcinmcnt takes hold of the service' in the United Stutos the better it will bo , not only for .ho government bill the whole people of .ho country. "Tho stock of Iho telegraph companies n America has been WATKltKD KNOHMOUSLY and it will bo watered lo a greater extent as Ihe ollicors ot the corporations see that the government is moving in the direction of purchasing their plants. The Western Union T'jlugraph company , which I understand is the great tele graph monopoly in the United Stales , has watered its stock to about three times its original magnitude. If congress at its approaching session should come so near the passage of a bill contemplating the purchase of existing lines , as lo fail by only a slight margin , it will cost the country millions of dollars on account of the watering process which will follow. "Were it not thai England purchased lier lines of telegraph by means of money raised on loans or bonds , Iho postal tele graph system would bo self-sustaining , nnd quite a largo prolit would bo turned into the treasury every year at the pres ent rates. Six years ago wo came within 000 annually of paying out the entire expense of operating our postal tele graph system , including Iho interest on our bonded indebtedness , and we pay 3 per cent and n fraction of interest. Our service was largely increased about that tune , and we should have placed it upuu a paying basis , had not there followed a large increase of pay to employes , and of thu number of ollicurs. For a while , under the increase of oxpgnso , the debit- lire increased , and the success of the ser vice as a self-supporting proposilion did not look very well ; but last year it came up to within 1200,000 of Ihe total cost. " ' Here I interrupted Mr. Lambo to ob serve that in the treasury of Ihe United States there are at present sums of money aggregating questionable amounts but surely overreaching $200,000.0)0 , and that they yielded nothing to the coun try. try."With so little money , " said Mr. Lam be , "there can be no question whatever - over as to the propriety of the American government taking charge of the tele- graphtSystora. Wo have ONLY ONK DIIAWIIACK wilh us , and that ia our indebtedness we owe for every dollar of the original plant. With uo interest to pay the gov ernment of America should be able to furnish the people with a telegraph ser vice at rates less than we do , and have a clear profit at Iho end of every fiscal year. I will tell you something about the rates of tariff charged tor telegrams under our system , and you can compare them with the charges in your coun try , and sec if wo do not already uncut your private companies a very great doal. The charge for the transmission ot a telegram from and to any point in our United Kingdom , includ ing the channel i stands , etc. , Is six pence for the tirst twelve words , and a half a penny for each subsequent word. Wo charge for the address and signature tea a telegram , and I believe it is thn only de parture wo have taken from your system in udopling Iho telegraph as a means of communication. Ordinary postage stamps are placed on Ihe telegrams for payment of telegraph service , and they are cancelled the postoflico where hied the same as if they were maiicd , at the rates I have named. "Tho ne ivspapers probably got as much bonotit as any other class by TUB UOVKIJNMKNr TKI.KUHAI'H MSTKM. The rates lor newspapers and I moan by newspapers all publications registered us ncwsnapers at thu postolllco and entitled to rod u cutl postage and also clubs , news associations , pay 1 shilling (25 ( cents ) tor each 100 words dispatched after 0 p. m. , for Ihn first address , and 2 pence (4 ( cents ) for each 100 words to every additional address receiving the same roport. For day messages Iho rules are Ihe same , ex cept thai the basis is 70 words for 1 shilling. You see at this rale where a message is addressed lo more than ono newspaper the coat is but 4 cents for each 100 words or fraction thereof after Iho initial 100 is paid. The cheapest rate given in America Is about 10 cents for 180 words , where the distivo Is short and the number of words sent is gruat. The average press rate in America is , 1 believe , soiiuttliing like I cent a word , or twice thn rate wo charge if Ihe telegram is sent to one paper. "Thu innnntiHfl advantage in postal telegraphy iu America would bol ttinuld think , to the people at places where there is no competition in telegraphy. When the government owns and controls the telegraph system a man living in a small place with only ono tclegrapn line gets just as good a rate on his messages , as prompt service and a4 many accommo dations as tho'onc residing in a largo city where there are ovnr so rnauy rival trie- graph lines. Then there Is absolute se curity to those who send messages over government lines. The secrecy Is per * tcct. None was over known to make publicTHE THE CONTENTS Of A MES3AGK. All operators and clerks are sworn. It is a misdemeanor in ajl ( ho United king dom except in Scotland , and is punished by line or imprisonment lo open n tele gram. The same relates to the mail mat ter in America. In Scotland it is raado a crime lo open a message whether it is done by an employe or other person , or to make the contents of n telegram known lo a person not entitled lo them. We have special delivery nrnuignmonls and Ihoy act with great promptness. " "How do the railroads operate tele- grapti lines since the government pro hibits the maintenance of individual wires ? " 1 nskcd. "The government , " replied Mr. Lambc , "supplies all employes , even for private individuals , in Ihe operation of telegraph lines. Except in special instances , the railroad companies do not own the lines they use. If a special wire is dosircd they make application lo Iho government. If wo find it is needed , and there is room for it , the railroad company puts up the wire and wo pay for it. There is such a thing as a railroad company leasing a wire from the government , uti4 it is known as a sub or additional wire. Wo charge ill a mile a year for it and furnish an operator ; but the government has exclusive rights for the construction and maintenance of all telegraph Hues , even over private property. " "I presume your system would do away with our special wirusforslock brokers ? ' "An individual may control a line from one of his houses lo another ; a lirin may have a line of his own , built Mid con structed at its own expense , from one of Us houses to another : but one broker can not have a line of his own to another broker unless ho leases il from llio gov- eminent , and then it is under the govern ment's control. TUB KATE FOU LEASKD I.1NIW is 7 ( $ y3) ) per mile per annum. We pro vide those special rates whenever needed and the figures includes instruments , clerks , operators , nto. The accounts for the telegraph service are kept in these for Postage , etc. , and whenever practi cable the postmaster is Iho telegraph operator. Of course in Iho larger cilios where one or Iwo clerks are required Iho postmaster , Iho clerical force nnd Iho operator are distinctive ollicors of the ollico. Thu hours in the telegraph ofllco uro the same as those of Iho postollico. Where messages are lo be sent after of licial hours arraugamunts must bo made with the postmaster. We do not have telegraph ollicos at all pustofliccs. "On March 31 of last year the number of postolliccs in the United Kingdom was 15.SOD. Of these 4,710 were telegraph of- tices , and in addition there wore 1,025 railway stations open for telegraph busi ness. "When the patrons of u postollico in a community believe they can support a telegraph office they formulate a petition and guarnnlcc that the receipts fioiu the telegraph shall he sulliclont to liquidate the expenses. Then a telegraph oilico is opened. We pay. our postmasters and operators , where they lire Iho same , In the smaller places by u 'percentage of the income of the ollicos.The salaries are graded the tame as those of Iho postmas ters of the fourth class1 in America , in fact , our whole system of salaries is about the same us in America , except more liberal. " "Have you soon the various bills which have been before thu American congress looking toward the establishment of postal telegraph in the United States ? "Yos , " replied Mr. Lambo , smiling , "I have soon nil ot them , 1 think , and have received many communications from your congressmen in regard to our sys tem and whatshouhl be done in America , and icqiicsting information. The bills now under consideration are very crude ; especially tire they lame in the nrittor of binaries for the ollicors. ISO cotmlrv can afford to pay its representatives mean wages ; and particularly does this apply in the inauguration of an experiment or any now service. As district superin tendents , operators , otc. , you want men with npo exponencu and good judgment , uno Iheso cannot be obtained without good salaries. " "Do you receive many complaints about thn telegraph service from the people ple of the country ? " "Of course ; and the very same com plaints a postollico department receives trom the people on account of the mail service. It is the intention ef the ovorn- ment to give the very best service for llio least possible money and to cater to the masses. If wo are negligent there comes a howl from the people , which goes to house of commons , and then wo are skinned or rousted , us you would put il. Our system of extending lines and in creasing the capacity of ollicos is vury much like expediting thu service on mail routes in America. Wo are constantly doing it , and the ofllcer having super vision of the lines has authority to in crease the capacity of offices , extend lines and prpvido special accommoda tions for special occasions , just like the superintendent or manager where there are only private corporations. " In another letter 1 will repeat an inter esting conversation with Mr. Pearce , the gcrernl electrician of the postoflico do- parimenl , who is known as the practical man of the service. F. S.

Boston Advertiser : Modern ministers who have most success arc getting to bo bettor and bettor journalijts. The au tumn dusting of the pulpit cushions is , to it good extent , preparatory to a renewal of llio discussions of the day from the standpoint of men who have a full week in which to write their weekly loaders on the tendencies and needs of the day.

Mr. is enjoying his vacation with his family in outs of the most quiet and charming villages of'Now Hampshire. The other day ho was out on an all-day fishing excursion with his young sous and a visiting layman from town. Dur ing his abhouco 'his wife received a largo parcel of newspapers and magazines from town , and , according lo their habit , began marking as she skimmed them the articles she thought would bo most help ful to her husband , lie returned at night successful. He and his friend had caught plenty of iish , and wore iu us high spirits us the boys who went with them. After supper they sat down to look over the mail , and the visiting brother saw the plentiful pioneer pencil marks of the pastor's wife. "How's this ? " ho asked jokingly.

" "And while you go fishing " "She stays and looks after my interest * , her watchful bye on tbo devil , " said Mr. quickly. ! 2 ?
