Boulanccr's chances at the Paris election
are yet the subject of wasrers in Prance, the
letting being somewhat in the General's
favor. The idol of his people is determined
en his great coup, to resign his present seat
and throw himself entirely on the generosi
ty of the Parisians. The Panamists i ish
to give him a chance to keep his promise to
them. The Continent furnishes a fair
budget of gossip.
fBY CABLE TO THE DISrATCII.3
Paris, January 12. Interest in France
centers more and more upon the Paris elec
tion, at which Boulanger intends to show
that he is stronger than the Republic.
Prenchmen who bet are inclined to back the
General, but I incline to the belief that
they will lose their money. It is necessary,
lowever, to say that Boulanger's chances
have improved since last week. The Royal
ists and Bonapartists have practically come
out openly in his favor, and he himself has,
it is stated, decided upon a most clever,
though risky, political stroke. His idea is
to resign the seat which he actually occu
pies in the Chamber of Deputies, and so
throw himself entirely on the mercy of Paris
electors. If he does so, admiration for his
pluck will doubtless decide many wavering
voters in his favor.
Boulanger also has been exceedingly pol
itic in his bid for the support of the Pan
amists, as the holders of the unlucky shares
WIIXIJJG TO GIVE HIM A CHASCE.
Floanet who is in power and who is
honest, could only tell the committee of the
shareholders that'he would do his best, but
could promise nothing. Boulanger, on the
contrary, bewailed the lact that his hands
were tied by a lack of power, sympathized
teariully, promised to do everything if he
should ever have the power, and, to show
his earnestness, promptly subscribed for 25
bonds. The Panamists naturally say, "The
actual order of things won't save us; let's
give Boulanger a chance at least, to show
what he can do."
The piincipal hope of the present bour
geois Government lies,curiously enough, in
the energy that may be displayed by their
natural enemies, the Socialists. These have
decided to put forward a delegate of their
own, and if at the first ballot Boulanger
comes out ahead, as he very probably will,
they will give their votes to the Govern
ment on the second ballot to defeat the
dreaded dictatorship. 31. Boule, the So
cialist candidate, is a strong and remark
able man. "While earning his living as a
stonecutter, he has studied and made of
himself a strong writer and an able speaker.
His influence on the workingmen is great,
and he may rally 30,000 votes
GEEMASX JSirEOVING HEK AETILL.EET.
Germany is laboring to get her artillery on
an even footing with that of Prance, which
will mean a very great improvement on the
present state of things, and, beside this, a
move in the way of fighting. The energy of
the country appears to he principally con
centrated on the uninteresting ilorier case.
It appears fairly evident to impartial folk
that Morier did not send any information to
Bazaine, but it is equally evident that
Bismarck means to make the English Am
bassador uncomfortable if he can. It seems
that the Gefficken investigation disclosed
the fact that Morier was in the plot, un
doubtedly organized among a few friends of
the Empress Frederick, and led by her to
injure Bismarck and destroy his influence
by the publication of the Emperor Fred
erick's untruthful diary, and otherwise.
Gefficken has been set at liberty, being such
"very Email fry, but Bismarck wants re
venge, and being a man of very con
siderable talent, Emperor Frederick's
writing to the contrary notwithstanding,
will probably get it. His next speech in
the Beichstag is very properly looked
forward to with deep interest.

London, January 12. The young wheat
plant is still too forward, and any severe
weather, which is probable, will cause very
serious damage to the crops. Trade during
the week has ruled much firmer, all the

bushel. The blockade of the Odessa by the

very little business, and the response to the

railroad conference has not been so import
ant as it should have been. The fact is,
public opinion has been for the moment di
verted from America to the South African

BEBLIN, January 12. The 27th of this
month is the young Emperor "William's
birthday. There will be no demonstration
in public, probably for the reason that it
-would be very apt to take an unwelcome
form. The Emperor intends to make the
"boys and girls of the Berlin schools who
have been very good happy on the eve of his
birthday, but he appears not to have chosen
the best method, supposing that Berlin chil
dren are like most others, for they are to be
cent to sit gratis through the performance of
a patriotic play called "Die Quitzows."
The Emperor's two oldest sons will be
Jiresent, and the school children will have
at least the satisfaction of knowing that the
imperial boys have to stand the thing as
veil as themselves.

Londok, January 12. Connie Gilchrist,
a young woman who was very much talked
abont at one time, appears to have disap
peared permanently from the stage. She
has retired to country life, and though so
nearsighted as to be almost unable to see a
hedge until she is going over it, is devoting
all her time to hnnting. The fact that she
has not come to grief thus far is due to her
good fortune in having a Duke to see that
she has mounts capable of taking her over
things without any ontside instruction.

London, January 12. The outbreak in

England as to its probable effect on Stanly

Africa. The most curious thing to notice

BY CABLE TO T11E DISPATCH.
London, January 12. There was a very
exciting time in the town of Monaco, last
week. The Prince is a hypochondriac, and
beside, is very delicate. Last week he ate
something or other done up in paper. The
food had a peculiar taste, and His Highness
promptly decided that he had been poisoned.
He ordered a criminal investigation, and
went to bed, where he suffered as hypochon
driacs who think they have been poisoned
The result of the investigation caused an
uproar in His Highness' kitchen. There
had been no poisoning, but the cook had
used paper not destined for cooking pur
poses, and which imparted to the food a
strong carbolic taste.

A New Departure by the H. J. Heinz Co.
It is a fact not generally known to the
citizens of our city that there is in onr midst
a manufacturing firm which employs over 50
traveling and city salesmen. The former
number about 25,and travel over every State
and Territory in the Union.
Beference is made to the H. J. Heinz
Company, successors to F. & J. Heinz, man
ufacturers ot pickles, condiment", preserves
and vinegar. This firm manufactures the
largest assortment in their line in the world,
and their nameand trademark. "Keystone."
have become household words throughout
the land. They have received all the gold
medals and highest awards over all competi
tors, wherever exhibited. At the beginning
of the present year the firm has taken a new
departure in regard to their traveling sales
men. The business has grown to such a
wide extent of territory, and the number of
salesmen increased so largely that it was
impossible to talk to each personally, Mr.
H. J. Heinz therefore deemed it wise to call
a convention of all the salesmen.
This convention was in session for over a
week, discussing the different points of in
terest connected with the business, and to
find ont from each one the wants of the
people in this line. That this convention
will prove productive of great good, not only
to me nrm ana salesmen out to tne pumic
as well, is undoubted, and it might be added
in this connection that if other firms, in dif
ferent kinds of business, wonld pursue a
similar policy toward their salesmen the
returns would be larger. It is not necessary
to mention that the firm entertained the con
vention during its entire session, and, in ad
dition, gave on the evening of the 4th a
magnificent banquet to the convention, in
cluding all the employes of the general
office, at which speeches were made and a
good and happy time generally was enjoyed
by all present Before the convention closed
it was addressed by Mrs. Jones, of the "W.
C. T. U., after which the members, as a
mark of their appreciation and thanks for
the courteous and considerate treatment
from the firm in the past as well as for the
hospitalities extended, presented to H. J.
Heinz Co. a set of resolutions beautifully
engrossed in the form of a keystone (their
trade-mark, and which appears upon all
goods manufactured by them bearing their
name). They were received by Mr. H. J.
Heinz in some happy remarks. Their ware

IMPOBTAXT FACTS OFFICIALLI STATED
rSFECIAL TELEaRAX TO THE DISPATCH.
New Yobk, January 12. The Catholic
Directory for 1889, just issued, is more
than usually interesting, from the fact
that this is the centennial year of
the establishment of the Boman Catholic
hierachy in the United States. The figures
have been furnished by the Diocesan Chan
cellors, so that the statement that the Catho
lic population numbers 8,157,656 souls must
pass without question. The number of
priests is placed at 8,118 2,008 regulars
and 6,110 seculars. They attend 7,353
churches, 2,770 stations and 1,480 chapels.
There are 199 orphan asylums, caring
for it is estimated about 22,000 orphans.
There are 32 theological seminaries, with
1,570 students, 125 colleges and 549 acad
emies; and 2,799 parochial schools, with
597,196 scholars. Chicago has the largest
number of scholars in its parochial
schools 42.0S7 more than twice as
many proportionately to population
as New York. Brooklyn has the largest
number of orphan asylums, excepting Bos
ton and Baltimore each exceeding it by
one but Brooklyn in its nine asylums
cares for nearly twice as many orphans as
both, the number being 2,357.
There are IS archdioceses in tho United
States with 60 suffrastcn sees, 7 vicarates
and 1 prefecture apostolic. These are gov
erned by 13 archbishops and 73 bishops, a
lew of the latter being coadjutors, who, with
the vicars apostolic have titular sees in
infidel countries. Administrators rule in
the vacant sees of Natchez, Miss., and
Richmond, Ya., and 8 mitered abbots have
wT over that number of religious com
catholics in the big cities.
According to the directory there are
1,030,000 Catholics in New York and
Brooklyn dioceses 800,000 of them belong
ing to the New York see. Albany diocese
counts 135,000, Buffalo 142,136, Newark
160,000, Trenton 52,000, Ogdensburg 63,520,
Syracuse 100,000, and Eochester 77,000 so
that in the province of New York com
prising the States of New York and New
Jersey there are 1,759,656 adherents to the
Catholic Chnrch. From this it will be seen
that more than one-fifth of the Catholic
population of the United States find homes
in the States of New York and New Jersey.
In the State of Pennsylvania there are
761,231 Catholics, divided among the five
sees as follows: Philadelphia, 400,000; Erie,
60,000: Harrisburg, 36,231; Scranton, 90,000,
and Pittsburg and Allegheny, 175,000. This
demonstrates that the last mentioned diocese
could stand a partition into the two fees of
which it 'is composed an event, however,
that will not come to pass while Bishop
Tuigg is alive. In point of numbers ot
Eriests and churches it shows up as well,
aving 210 of the former and 138 of the lat
ter running close to the Archiepiscopal see
of Philadelphia, which has 283 priests and
149 churches, and almost equaling the com
bined strength of the three other sees, which
are as follows: Erie, 72 priests and 104
churches; Harrisburg, 59 priests and 53
churches; Scranton, 91 priests and 83
churches. The Diocese of Pittsburg and
Allegheny has 74 parochial schools and 21,
500 pupils as many schools as the Phila
delphia see, though 5,500 less pupils. Erie
has 58 schools, Harrisburg 24 and Scranton
23, but the sum total of their scholars falls
3,931 short or reaching the number in the
schools of Pittsburg and Allegheny.
A CENTURY'S obowth.
These figures show a remarkable growth
compared with those of 100 years ago, when,
at the establishment of hierarchy, the Cath
olic population of the United "States num
bered but 44,500. The figures of that time
were collected tor the Holy see, and the
division was announced as follows: "There
are in New England about 600; New York
and New Jersey, 1,700; Pennsylvania and
Delaware, 7,700; Marvland freemen, 12,
000, slaves, 8,00020,000; at the Illinois, at
Kaskaskia and severalothcr establishments,
purely French, on the Mississippi, 12,000."
It will be seen from this that the Catholic
Centennial, which will be observed on No
vember 6, 1889, will look back upon progress
that not every denomination can pride
itself on. Tliededication of the new Cath
olic University on this occasion will ap
propriately conclude the ceremonies attend
ing the inauguration of another century
whose promise is proportionate to the ex
pectations of hierarchy.
A glance at the names of the bishops in
the Catholio Directory impresses one with
the idea that the Catholic Church in the
United States is principally indebted to
Ireland for the prelates whose zeai and
ability have made the record it is her priv
ilege to boast of to-day. That this has al
ways been the case is showD in the state
ment of John Gilmary Shea, in his 'History
of the Catholic Church in tho United
States. Of the 171 deceased prelates whose
biographies it contains, 50 were born in Ire
land and a considerable number of the
others were sons of Irish parents. An in
vestigation of the ancestry of living prelates
indicates that the hierachy, as at present
constituted, leaves very few of Ireland's
A FEW NOTED NAMES.
James Cardinal Gibbons is the son of
Irish parents, as also was his predecessor in
this important office the late John Cardinal
McCloskey. It might be added that the
early education of the second American
Cardinal was imparted to him in the land of
his forefathers, and that his memories lov
ingly linger in the green vales of his boy
hood. Most Eev. Michael Augustine Cor
rigan is the son of an 'Irish rebel, and the
stately Archbishop of Chicago, Most Eev.
P. A.Peehan, is one of "the matchless men
of Tipperary." The oldest of the American
hierarchy, in point of years and service, is
the Most Bev. Peter Kendrick, Aichbishop
of St. Louis, who was born 82 years ago in
the city ot Dublin. The Archbishop of
x'niiaaeipnia, iuosi .nev. r. j . ityan, is a
native of Thurles the home of the patriotic
Archbishop Croke, the "Eock of Cashel,"
as is also Et. Eev. Thomas Bonacum,
Bishop of Lincoln, Neb.
Et Eev. John Longhlin, of Brooklyn,
has been given two different birthplaces by
as many authorities. One says he Vas born
in Tyrone, another says in Down, and the
good Bishop himself once remarked to an
inquisitive reporter that his memory didn't
extend hack far enough to justify him
speaking authoritatively in correction. Bt
Eev. Patrick A. Ludden, of Syracuse, and
Et. Eev. Patrick O'Eeilly, of Springfield,
Mass., are both natives of Cavan, and Et
Eev. "William O'Hara, of Scranton, was
born in Londonderry.
Et. Eev. Lawrence Scanlon, of Salt Lake
City, comes from Cork, and has affectionate
ly named the college in his diocese after his
alma mater All Hallows. Et Eev. Jere
miah O'Sullivan, of Mobile, was reared
among the wild and lofty grandeur of the
scenes that bless Kanturk, in the same
country, from which Et Eev. James
O'Connor, of Omaha also hails. Et Eev.
Dennis Bradley, of Manchester, N. H.,
first saw the "light of day" in the "ould
dart," and Queens county has the honor of
being the birthplace of Et Eev. John J.
Conrov, of Curium, who is so well-known to
New Yorkers. Et. Eev. M. J. O'Farrell,
of Trenton, spent his early davs in the "city
of the violated treaty," and had posssibly
as a companion" in his boyhood's sports the
Et. Eev. Edward Fitzgerald, of Little
Eock, Ark., who, too, is a native of Lim
erick. From the county of that name also
come Bt. Kev. John Hennessey, of Du
buque, Iowa, and Bt. Eev. John J. Hogan,
of Kansas City.
Most Bev. John Ireland, the Archbishop
of St. Paul popularly known as "the
Father Mathew of the West" is Irish by
birth as well as by name, having first seen
the light of day in Kilkenny town. EL
Eev. John J. Keane, the rector of the Cath
olio University, is a native of Ballyshannon,
County .Donegal, and Et, Eev. Patrick
Manogue, of Sacramento, Cal., who worked
his way from the mines to the mitre, was
born at Desart, County Kildare.
IRISH AMERICAN PBELATES.
Bt, Eev. John Moore, of St. Augustine,
Fla., claims Delvin, County "Westmeath, as
the scene of his birth, and Et Eer. Eugene
O'Connell, of Grass Vallev, Cal., hails from
the adjoining county of Meath. Et. Eev.
Tobias Mullen, of Erie, Pa., was raised in
Flustown, County Tyrone. Et, Eev. Eich
ard Phelan, of Pittsburg, is a native of Kil
kenny, and the aged prelate, whose coadju
tor he is, Et Eev. J. Tuigg, spent his boy
hood in the county of Cork, among scenes
entranced with the melody of
'The bells of Shandon that sound so grand on
The pleasant waters of the river Lee."
The bishops created during the past year
are Irish by birth o'r descent. They are:
Burke, of Cheyenne, "SVyo.; Hennesey, of
AVichita, Kan.; McGovern, of Harrisburg,
Pa., and Foley, of Detroit.
Our Irish-American prelates are easily
distinguished by their names. They are
Et Eevs. McQuaid, of Eochester; Eyan, of
Buffalo; Harkins.of Providence; McMahon,
of Hartford; McNierny, of Albany; Kain.of
"Wheeling; McClosky, of Louisville; Galla
gher, of Galveston; Cosgrove, of Daven
port, and Heely, of Portland. Most Eev.
Archbishop Gross is the son, of an Irish
mother, and Archbishop "Williams, of Bos
ton, and Archbishop Eiordan, of San Fran
cisco, are of Irish parentage. Surely this is
a great and grand showing for Ireland.
