LANCASTERIDAHY INTELLIGENCER. MONDAY, DECEMBER 13, 1880.
PEOP1.ES BOLTS UBOW.
Polling the Members.
fv bat They Say en tlmSenatershlp.
There are one hundred and fifty-three
Republican members of the Pennsylvania
Legislature, giving that party a majority
of fifty-six en joint ballet. This will be
increased by one by the election in the
Sixth Senate district te-morrow te fill a
vacancy. This majority will name a
United States senator te succeed Senater
Wallace, and as there are a multitude of
candidates and no certainty about the
strength of any of them, the Timet has un
dertaken te get some idea of the opinions
of members for the benefit of its readers.
Circulars were mailed te every Republican
member, asking him te indicate his first
and second choice and te make such re
marks as he might deem pei tinent te the
occasion. About one-third of the whole
number have been heard from r.e far and
are grouped below. . The returns feet up
thus : Fer Grew, 15 ; for Ward, 'J ; scat
tering, 8 ; undecided, 12.
Of the replies received the following
from Lancacter county are characteristic :
Laudi8, Jehn II. Lancaster ; first choice,
Qalusha A. Grew ; second choice would
probably be Hen. Gleniu W. Scofield,
but I knew no second choice as long as 1
have Hen. Galusha A. Grew te vote for.
Fer once the members of the Legislature
should represent the wish of the people
rather than heed the dictates of machine
bosses. Would the pcople of the state
vote upon the senatorial question "the
father of the American homestead bill"
would be elected by one hundred thousand
majority. The members of the Senate and
Heuse who are instructed, and -these who
were understood te be for Grew before
the election, who new attempt te manu
facturcs excuses for withholding their sup
port by giving complimentary votes te
local candidates, are plotting treason of
the rankest kind against the well-known
wishes of their constituents. The very
best element of the Republican party are
for Grew, and ceircctly se ; for when the
ether states of the union are making r.p
'their minds te send their ablest and fore
most statesmen te represent them in the
American Scnate chamber when Vermont
has just returned her Edmunds and
Rhede Island her Burnsidc ; when Maine is
about te send her Hale or her Fryc, Massa
chusetts her Dawes, Connecticut her llaw
ley. New Jersey her Halsey or her Sewell,
Ohie her Sherman, Indiana her Harrison
and Tennessee her Maynard, Pennsylvania
ewes it te herself, te her interests and te
her peeple te send her ablest, bravest and
safest statesman her pure and patriotic
Mylin, Ames II., senator Thirteenth dis
trict : I was instructed at the May pri-
rearies te vote for G. A. Grew.
Peeples, Hiram, Lancaster: First choice
an intelligent and sound Republican ; sec
ond choice, a sound Republican. Your
friends of "the 2fen Era a.n& seme etheis
censider the representatives of Lancaster
county instructed and bound te vote for
Hen. Galusha A. Grew. I expect te give
the affair a vaicful consideration and act
Ureat Crowd at the Creek.
Frem early in the morning yesterday
until late in the evening the Concstage at
GraefFs Landing was covered with people
who were enjoying the skating. The ice
was very rough, but that did net prevent
these present from having a geed time.
During the afternoon there were probably
ever six hundred people at the creek at
one time. Mere than half of this number
were en the ice, and of these seven-eighths
at least had skates. These who diil net
possess skates or did net wish te go en the
ice steed upon the shore and witnessed the
fun. An enterprising huckster was pres
ent during the day, and he furnished
oysters, &c., te these who remained at the
creek in preference te going home.
A large number of persons drove out
from town, and"'bnses were kept running
during the afternoon.
During the whole day three or four ipe
firms were engaged cutting ice and filling
their houses. About fifty men were kept
at work. The ice was very geed and was
at least eight inches in thickness.

A NOVEL TROUPE.
An Arab With a Stranger ter a tlucst."
On Saturday evening a troupe of Pales
tine Arabs appeared in the opera house.
The troupe includes Sclim Ilashim, the
Arab guide who was the first te discover
Livingstone iu the Stanley expedition ;
Sheik Abou D.iych (hi Uajalee) a Bedouin
reed player and dancer ; Sheik Yeuscph
Awden (El Ramlanee), who was man icd
when 8 years old and became a father at
12 years ; Khawadja Yakoob (El Bahzoo Bahzeo Bahzoe
zie), a sword dancer and tamherrinist ;
Khawadja Yakoob (El Hawcet), a player
en the Syrian harp ; Sheik Mohammed
Sulieman (El Malewcc). a whirling derv
ish from Bagdad, aud James Resedalc and
and his cousin, Rebecca Rosedale, Israel
ites from Jerusalem. The Arabs represent
the Jebusitcs, Edemites, Meabitcs, aud
Ishmaclitcs. Sclim H-ishim, the manager
of the Arabs, aid an accomplished lin
quist, speaking thirty-two tongues, gave
an introductory lecture, in which he told
the audience that the customs, ceremonies,
&c, of these people, would be given, and
that the entertainment would be all the
mere interesting te the public from the fact
that the exhibition would consist of customs
iu use among these same people 4,000
years age. While the civilization of sur
rounding tribes and surrounding people
had advanced these people, made
n j advancement whatever and they
are just the same new as ever. The p3i
f jrmancc was an exhibition of the Arab
ian salutations en the streets, marriage
ceremony, the mode of preparing and eat
ing meals, mode of worship, and the man
ner in which the Bedouins attack cara
vens. During the performance Sheik Me
hammend Sulieman, who is from Bagdad,
and is known as ttis whirling dervish,
gave an exhibition of whirling, which
consisted in rapidity turning en one
feet, apparently propelling himself with
the ether. He would turn for ten minutes
at a time, and the lecturer informed the
audience that he would be able te coh ceh coh
tinucfer two hours.
The whirling dervish is a pious Moham
medan, whose devotions, as exhibited te
an audience, are said te be sincere. He is
oblivious te his surroundings as he howls
and whirls. In his dressing room he kisses
his hat both at tha rim aud upon the
crown when he puts it en, aud he takes off
his shoes when he steps upon the prayer
rug. It angers him te sec any one with
shoes en tread upon the rug, and he says he
would knock such irreverent Christians
down if it were safe lo.de se. The rug is
ever 300 years old, and was stolen from a
mosque. The dervish carries as his badge
of ellicc, a battle axe, descended from the
Saracens and made of Damascus steel. The
howling of the dervish is te signify that he
is ready te serve Ged with all his might,
aud his whirling is te indicate that he will
go just where Ged pleases te turn him. He
is a truelshmaclitc, aud believes that every
man's hand is against him as his hand is
against every man. The dervish is the
only one of his party who cares noth
ing for money.
At the conclusion of the exhibition
proper the audience were invited te ex ex
amfne the implements of war, culinary
apparatus, etc., which the troupe had.
Among them were the battle axe. 900
years old, the Damascus blade made by
an art new lest, and the holy rug.
The only female member of the party is
Rebecca, the Jewish girl, who is singularly
fair, wifji large eyes shaded by long black
lashes. She was in native costume, aud
were ahead dress of fine stuff embroidered
with geld thread. She had no skirts, but
were long, baggy trousers of brocaded
silk, drawn about her ankles.
The most interesting member of the
party is the Bedouin, a big Arab, with a
striking and fierce eye. He aud the derv
ish, who is a faithful follower of the
Prophet, are rarely en geed terms. A few
days age he said that it was a pity that the
camel which bore Mehammed in the He
gira did net break it leg, se that the
Prophet's neck might have been broken
also, and then there would net have been
any Mohammed Sulieman whirling derv
ish from Bagdad. About the only
Englibh that the Bedouin speaks is
a parrot-like repetition of the in
troduction, of the Mohammedan as a
' wcerliug dcervefish from Bagdad." He
: i.:..r r.ir ..,. ;., !.:.. ,,(.,. r
, his father was- aIse cbief 'His
mother, te whom he is tenderly attached,
is infirm from having been thrown from a
camel upon which she was trying te escape
from a band of robbers that surprised her
son's camp. The Bedouin's taste for high
way robbery is se streug that his manager
does net think it safe te permit him te
have an opportunity te indulge it.
The performance was very interesting
as well as instructive, and it was highly
appreciated bv the audiencp, which was
composed of some of the most
intelligent people, of the city. As
the Arabs appeared iu their scenes
of salutation, bartering, feasting,
marrying and robbing, they seemed te
have stepped out of a picture of Oriental
scenes. The sword dence of El Bahzoezic
is interesting. It is the dauce of a chief
tain before his warriors as they return
from battle. The dancer brandished the
sword se swiftly that he seems at times te
be behind a sheet of mirror glass. El
Bahzoezie's title is taken from his large
eyes, and the name means " pap-cyes."
