TVASHnraiON, May 5. One of the in
consistencies of Washington justice is the
law passed about a year ago by Congress
mating it unlawful to sell pools or make
books on the races within the boundary
line. In one of the rooms vacated a "bucket
shop" has been substituted. Gambling in
grain and stocks is participated in by "re
spectable people," and it is considered
legitimate business by law-makers. This
"bunko shop," as it is generally called by
all those who have "went up against it," is
located in the Harris House within a block of
"VTOlard'a, Ebbitt, Randall and other leading
hostelries. Its doors are wide open. Gilt let
ters are placed over the door announcing:
National Grain and Stock Exchange.:
It is in plain view of the police and district
Officials: yet almost everyone who has at
tempted to beat the came say it is almost as
bad as brace faro. One yonng Knclishman
wlthLydla Thompson's troupe suggested to
several dealers last Thurbdaythat it ought to
be called "Brace Faro Bank Exchange." and
all exclaimed that the Englishman was right
The quotations of grain, stocks, etc, are made
by a mechanical device a very simple piece of
mechanism. In a box about 12 inches long by
4 inches wide and 3 inches deep, is placed
several hundred printed cards. Upon each
card is two lines, as follows:
: WHEAT.: : oats. : : CORN. : : BYE, :
: oats. : : wheat.: : BYE. : icofijf.:
These cards are all "shuffled up" and placed
in the box eTery morning, and the exchange is
Tradv for "business." The box is placed on a
r- Dcdestal in the middle of a "bull pen." The
closing quotations of the different cereals are
then taken from the morning paper and placed
on a blackboard. The dealers can then com
mence "business" by buying or selling, what
ever they choose. A "bill of sale" or
"boy," as the case may be, is
made out and yon sien it just
the same as you would in the Pittsburg Ex
change. Every two minutes a little boy pulls a
lever and one of these cards drops into a slot
with a glass cover. If the card reads "Wheat
Oats," another boy calls. "Wheat-Oats," which
indicates that wheat has gone up one point and
oats down one. The next card may read the
reverse. "Oats-Wheat." That means that oats
has gone up and wheat down. The article first
THE CABD GOES UP
and the second down. The only difference be
tween this "mechanical exchange" and the
regular exchanges is tbaKyou cannot re-margin.
If the market goes one point against yon, you
are "scooped," and that settles -that deal, IT
you wish to continue the grain "business," you
can do so by making a "new deal." If the margin
should happen to go in your favor, every point
doubles the original amount Invested. 1 ou can
close your deal at any time, but it is very sel
dom that a speculator has the trouble to close'
a deal. The machine will generally close it for
you by a "scoop."

Washingtonians call the, boundary line, where

One of the race track characters that is sadly
missed at the Washington spring meeting this
year is "Father Bill" Daly. The management
of the Clifton track are giving six J500 purses
each week in order to indnce horse owners to
not come here, and to some extent have accom
plished the desired end. "Father Bill" thinks
be can win more races at Clifton, and yon can
always find him where he can "catch the most
fish." He had horses engaged in all the stakes
here, but forfeited in all of them.
The Dwver Bros of New York, have been
attending the races here. They will not start
any horses until the Brooklyn meeting opens.
Mr.'Mike Dwyer thinks Hanover will have, no
trouble in winning the Brooklyn handicap, if
he trains on well. The best looking old horses in
the stable are Fordbam, Belle B and Inspector
B. Kingston so far is training well, but if he
has any trouble in his foot he will undergo the
same operation as Hanover. In the 2-year-olds
the Dwyers have a grandly bred lot. Just
think of a brother to Hanover, brother to
Firenzi, brother to Blue Wing, brother to Dry
Monopole. brother to Kingston, brother to Jim
Gore, a black colt by Hindoo or George Kin
ney, out ol-Uproar: cister to Tremont, sister to
Lizzie Dwyer, half-brother to Romp. This is
Certainly the grandest bred lot of yonngesters
ever owned by any one stable, and ought to be
heard from before the season is over.
The opinion here of the talent generally is
that Mr. Withers' 3-year-old coltFavordale will
win most of the early 3-year-old stakes in the
East, unless some of Mr. Brown's should upset
all calculations. Favordale is in grand shape.
ABOUT PBOCTOB KNOTT.
Proctor Knott's race in the Two Thousand
sweepstakes at Nashville on Thursday, has
started the gossipers. They all say that Knott
will be a greater prize as a 3-year-old than he
was last year.
The steeplechase here, on Thursday last,
for gentlemen members of the club, was the
event of the day. The riders had all practiced
the jumps, and their many admirers were
- KteerjlechUse. on Tuesday, every rider or
horse fell save Hercules, the pinner and
many predicted that none of the gentleman
"jocks" would get over the water-jump, but
the gloomy forebodings proved to be illusive,
as only two fell and they quickly remounted
and went the full course. Mr. Hayes, the rider
of the winner. Venus, rode an excellent race,
and was roundly cheered by the ladies when he
finished first. The odds were 10 to 1 at the
close against Venus.
The handicap steeplechase on Friday was
another disastrous affair for the professional
jockevs. At one time every horse in the race
was riderless but Mara, the rider of Jake Ship
sey, caught his horse first, remounted and won
the race amid great excitement and applause.
Updyke, the rider of Killarney, was trampled
upon byElulim and had several of his ribs
broken. Smith, the rider of Lighthouse, was
also pretty badly bruised. The sooner steenle
chasing is done away with the better it will be
for the turf. Host of the horse owners are
averse to it on account of the great danger to
human life, but as long as racing associations
hang up good purses someone will take the
risk of having horse and rider lose their
lives. It is singular that a steeplechase will
always insure a large attendance of ladies, it
appearing to be an amusing sight to them to
see several horses and jockeys come tumbling
over one another at the water jump or at the

The Ball Flayers' Brotherhood Threaten to
Call a Halt.
WASmsQTON. May 6. Events have so
shaped themselves during the past month that
makes it very probable that the League will
have considerable difficulty with players during
the coming season. The classification rule
passed last winter, instead of allaying the dis
content, was regarded by the men as a move on
the part of the League to break faith with
them and take advantage of their leader's ab
sence. The manner in which the New York
Club has treated several of its players is an
other cause of dissatisfaction, and since Ward's
return several secret conferences have been
held by the Brotherhood for the purpose of
furnishing a programme for action.
The action of the Chicago Club, in releasing
players at a late day without warning, after
taking them around the world, and then mak
ing thenf continue the trip in this country in
order to make what they could out of it, is se
verely condemned by members of the Brother
hood. If Spalding had released them as soon
as be landed, it would not have been thought
so much of, but to give them an absolute re
lease at the end of the tour contributed in a
great measure to precipitate the proceedings
of the Brotherhood.
The members of the Brotherhood have held
several secret conferences lately, and it is un
derstood that a definite line of action has been
agreed upon. The annual meeting of the
Brotberboodi will be held in New York, on

Morris Will Report for Dqty To-Day

Ed Morris, the local pitcher, will report for
duty to-day to Secretary Scandrett During a
conversation last evening he said:
"I did not Intend to report so soon, as I have
been pretty sick. However, now that Galvin
is knocked out for a time I think I ought to
make an extra effort. I will join the club at
Chicago on Wednesday. I am satisfied that
Gal Tin's foot is badly hurt, because be will not
retire from a game except he is really forced
to ao so. tie oners to stop oaiis vnai xew men

Morris expressed his opinion of the big hit

Brouthers is the boss. He is always hitting

John Coleman, recently released by the local
club, in a public letter states his case as fol
lows: A great many people wonld like to know
wbv I have been released from the Pittsburg
Club. The fact is that I have never received
any encouragement from the papers here.
They hare continually given it out that I can
not throw, whereas there is nothing at all the
matter with my arm. Horace Phillips told me
that it was a case of Tom Brown; that I was
driven out of town. I have always been treated
well by the club, the management and the
plavers. If there is any one of these scribes
that thinks I cannot throw, let him put np 100
and I will throw against any man they have in
the team for that amount. I am confined to
my room from the effects of a spike wound
which I received and got cold in. I will be all
right in a couple of days. I have not signed as
yet, but I am free to sign where I please.

A Tremendous Crowd Causes a Lively
Scene at Brooklyn.
New Yokk, May 5. The largest assemblage
of people that has ever witnessed a game of
baseball at Ridgewood Park, L. L, went to tbe
grounds to-day to see the battle between the
Brooklyn and Athletic teams. Before 3 o'clock
every seat in the inclosure was occupied and a
wall of humanity began to form around the
field. The crowd in center field was so dense
that many of the spectators could not even see'
the players. The game was started and the
crowd behaved well in spite of the absence of
Tbe Brooklyn team scored a run in tbe open
ing inning, and tbe Athletics scored one in the
third. The score remained tied until the sixth
inning, when tbe visiting players scored four
runs. The Brooklyn players then began to
play their half of tbe inning. As Foutz went
to the bat the crowd in center field began to
close in. Several persons, including President
Byrne, of the Brooklyn Club, tried to keep the
crowd back, but without avail. In a few
minutes the whole field was a sea of humanity,
and the players of both teams went to their
dressing rooms. No further effort was made to
clear the field or to continue the game. Some
of the on-lookers claimed that Welch, the
center fielder of the Athletics, called to them
to close in and tbey did so. It is doubtful if
there wonld hare been trouble if tbe home
team had had the lead. . Umpire Holland
called the game a draw and left the field. Mr.
Byrne, tbe President of the Brooklyn Club, en
tered tbe press stand afterward and said that
he wonld bring the whole matter before tbe
next meeting of tbe American Association.
He claimed that the Athletic fielders incited

Joe Merlin Defeats Blllv Barnes Yesterday
Morula on Local Ground A Short and
Lively Battle at Daybreak.
Orer 200 persons of sporting proclivities
gathered around a 21-foot ring at Bnn
rise yesterday morning to witness the bare
knuckle fight between Joe Martin and Billy
Barnes, two mill men of Soho. The match was
for 8100 a side, Queensbury rules governing,
and the fierceness of It, from the start, plainly
demonstrated that the crimson fluid was in
Only two rounds were necessary to finish
Barnes, who was gently laid low by tho telling
jugular "biff" of Martin. There was consider
able money bet on tbe result with slight odds
on the latter. " , ,
The fighters are both young aspirants for
fistic laurels, the winner being only 17 years of
age, and his antagonist about 20, fighting at
128 and 134 pounds respectively.
Some little murmuring was made by the
crowd as to the selection of a referee, but
finally a man well np in the art himself, and
equally informed on tbe governing rules, was
Just as the men stepped into the ring Old
Sol came up red and smiling through the vista
of a suburban fog. He looked a winner him
self and his carmine colors sent an ominous
thrill of surety through the friends of Martin.
This was because his colors were red, and
"his opponent's green. It was simply a case of
red above the green.
When the usual preliminaries had been
finished; reading the articles, the last rubbing
down given, and the cautious hand-shake of
the principals, then every1 breath was held by
spectators, seemingly to save is lor a nearty
yell for their favorite when the first point
In the first round Barnes led off with a crack
ing good thump which found a resting place on
Martin's stomach. This tender part of the tat
ter's anatomy was the objective point for the
little fellow, but his tactics were not coupled
with enough science in protecting tbe upper
part of his own body The advantage of a long
reach and superior sparring of Martin made
Mr. Barnes, of Soho. sick at the ending of tbe
Martin played for the face and neck all the
while, and was accorded "first blood," landing
a corking left bander on his opponent's mouth.
He followed np his lead and, with two more in
the jugular, sent his man to earth, doubled up
like a pretzel. He responded groggy, and the
bettors dropped their lips and Bald, "Good
Ronnd second was particularly vicious, and
Barnes made a good, game fight against big
odds. Martin's first blow was sufficient to
"drop" him, but the little fellow, "redheaded
and hopeful," was on his feet in a jiffy, bnt to
no purpose. Martin was m waiting for him,
and shot blows in a very promiscuous manner.
The telling effects showed on Barnes, still he
stuck; but the decisive one was a right-hander
on his neck, which sent him almost through
the ropes and into the hands of his second, In
sensible. He could not respond to "time," and,'
amid a wild hurrah, Martin was declared the
winner and awarded the money.
He is a very likely lightweight, and, with
some good trainer,-wonld make a very formida
ble snowing against the best of them. The
affair was very quietly carried out, and, though
the authorities heard some wind of it, they
were successfully given the slip.

Mar Fight McCarlby Again.
Bostos, May 5. It is not unlikely that "Cal"
McCarthy will have to meet Johnny Murphy
again, especially since he and his backers have
made so much, talk about Mac's drinking water
being dosed on his late visit here. Several gen
tlemen who witnessed the contest and wagered
their money on McCarthy have come to the
front and offer to back Murphy against him.
There aro other sporting men in this city who
are willing to back Murphy for $5,000 against
the New York bantam, and If he' can defeat
the Charlestown featherweight he and his sup
porters can carry over $15,000 away from Bos

club where tbe fight took place propose to
make the New Yorkers prove their statements.

A MURDER MYSTERI.
A Man Found Hanging to a Blast With a
Ballet In His Head.
Poet Blakeley, "Wash. T., May 5.
A man named M. R. Silber was found to
day hanging to a mast of a small boat that
was drifting about in the bay. In the mid
dle of his forehead a bullet hole was found.
The whole matter is involved in mystery,
and the authorities are making a thorough
investigation. Silber was shot by an un
known party or parties, but the motives
prompting the deed is a mystery.
The deceased was a total stranger so far as
known. He was well dressed and seemed to
have plenty of money. He came to Port
Blakeley a few days ago, and, hiring a small
boat, went ont into the bay. Nothing more
was seen of him until the lifeless body was
discovered suspended from the mast. The
murder is supposed to have been committed
by smugglers or pirates.

rFTtOM A STAFF COEBISPONDIlrT.
Habbisbttbo, May 5. The slate com
mittee of the Senate will meet tomorrow or
"Wednesday. Its duty wijl be to select a
President pro tern, of the Senate, who shall
serve until the next regular meeting of the
Legislature. There is pract'.cally no oppo
sition'to Senator Penrose, of Philadelphia.
At the beginning of the session there was
an understanding that Senator Allen, of
Warren, was the man selected for the place.
Comparatively early in the session, how
ever. Senator Butan paid a visit to "Wash
ington and almost immediately thereafter it
was announced that Penrose had been in
dorsed by Senator Quay for the place.
Senator Allen, according to a gentleman
who is in a position to know some of the
inner movements in politics, is booked for
a better place than the Presidency pro tern.
In case all plans go right and Senator Dela
mater becomes Governor, the Warren
Senator is to be Secretary of the Common
wealth. If all does not go well with Sena
tor Delamater, it is thought Mr. Quay's se
lection for the Gubernatorial nomination
will be either the present Secretary of the
Commonwealth, ex-Lieutenant Governor
Stone, or Adjutant General Hastings. How
Senator Allen would then stand for the
Secretaryship the gentleman who con
versed with The Dispatch correspondent
was not prepared to say.
Senator Delamater has things in the Sen
ate pretty well under control. His hand
some and elegant exterior does not at first
inspire one with an idea of his real force.
Neither does his style of oratory, which
seems better suited to the parlor than to the
halls of legislation, as does the Senator
himself. But closer acquaintance shows
that the polished speech and presence be
long to a man who oas aau experieuce in
practical business and practical politics,
and who understands both.
There is opposition to Mr. Delamatar in
the Senate, both covert and open. He has
not succeeded during the session-in con
verting many of his political enemies and
where opposition has not been manly and
open it has been quietly fostered by older
men who feel themselves pushed to the rear
by the young Senator from Crawford. In a
few days tbe Senators will scatter and with
it the ill feeling will be scattered. Whether
it will then die out in spots or form new
centers of disaffection is a question.
A very similar feeling shows itself occa
sionally in the House, but nevertheless, as
with Senator Delamater in the Senate,
whenever Mr. Andrews wants anything to
go it goes.
ANDREWS O. H. IN XHE, HOUSE.
There are members wbo vote against him
occasionally, and some frequently, but a
gentleman who has been studying the
record of the session says there are 68
members wbo have voted with him on every
question. This is a Strong bodyguard.
With a following iike this it is an easy
matter for Mr. Andrews to obtain enough
votes outside of it to carry any measure he
wishes carried, particularly when there are
many votes other than the 68 who are with
him the greater part of the time.
It would be folly for the closest friends of
either of these two leaders to say that they
have always dons' the wisest thing. But
nothing succeeds like success, and they are
at present on top of the heap, and therefore
proof against criticism. There is a great
deal of politics, however, in Pennsylvania,
and sleepless vigilance is required to keep
the Crawford county statesmen, wherejthey
are. The fact that they retain their posi
tions in the lead and can muster a sufficient
force to accomplish any legislative purpose
they have in view, good, bad or indifferent,
is perhaps a sufficient vindication from the
allegations of lack of capacity frequently
made by Bepublican foes, who speak in
confidence, and whose curses are often as
hearty as they are silent and impotent.
PLENTT OP TVOEK: AHEAD.
There are several important measures to
be disposed of this week by the Legislature
before adjournment at noon Thursday. The
revenue bill is in a conference committee, so
is the soldiers orphans' commission bill.
The third class city bill has to pass the
Senate finally and go to a conference com
mittee. The street bill is probably the most
important matter that immediately affects
Pittsburg, except the street railway bill,
which has not yet been acted on by the com
mittee of conference to which it was re
ferred. The final touches must also be put on the
general appropriation bill, and while a ma
jority of the members would undoubtedly
like to see the National Guard rigged out in
a dress uniform, there are some who show a
disposition to fight the appropriation of
?75',000 for that purpose. Mr. Wherry's
anti-discrimination bill and his sinking
fund resolntions are among the most impor
tant items of legislation that are left on the
calendars. The Sbip of State will not be
rocked or foundered by the passage of any
other bills that are on hand. The judge s
salary bill is one of this kind.

Freight and Passenger Trains Collide An
Engineer Killed and Bis Sweetheart
Dying From Grief-A Hall
Clerk's Last Bun.
jAMESiowir, Dak., May 5.' The first
section of the Northern Pacific west-bound,
limited passenger train collided this morn
ing' with freight No. 18 36 miles west. The
collision occurred in a bend, and the trains
were almost upon each other before the
danger was discovered. The firemen and
engineers of both trains jumped. Engineer
Bass, of the passenger, broke his back and
died almost immediately. Fireman Keller,
of the passenger, and Engineer Beall and
Fireman Helium, of the freight, escaped
without serious injuries.
The postal car jumped the track and was
a complete wreck. Both clerks were badly
injured. They had to be dug out of the
debris. Chief Clerk Slattery, of St. Cloud,
Minn., wbo was appointed under Cleveland,
had recently received notification of his re
moval and was on his last run. His leg was
broken, and he sustained internal injnries
from which he died just after the train
which bore the dead and wounded to James
town left Windsor. The other clerk, Louns
be'rry, a nephew of Colonel Lounsberry, the
well-known newspaper correspondent, had
his arm broken in two places, and was badly
scalded. Baggacemaster Nichols, of St.
Paul, had his arm broken in two places.
The train bore the usual number of passen
gers, but none were injured.
Engineer Bass, who was killed, lived here.
He formerly worked for the Northwestern,
and had been with the Northern Pacific
tour years. He was about 30 years old, and
was engaged to be married in about ten days
to Miss Miller, who was greatly shocked at
the receipt of the news of her lover's death,
and is suffering from a hemorrhage as the
result. Doubts ot her recovery are enter
tained. BACK! TO OUR OLD PLACE.

Ono of the Best Educators In Illinois Delib
erately and Cruelly Murdered.
Galena, Ira., May 5. Prof. H. T.
Matchett, one of the best known educators
in this section, and the founder and prin
cipal of the academy at Hanover,
this county, was assassinated to
day by George Skene, son of
Supervisor Wm. Skene. .Prof. Matchett
was returning in his buggy
from a small town where he had been con
ducting a Sabbath School, and had just
.reached a turn in the road when Skene
stepped in front of the buggy and shot
him. Henry Prisk, who was also in the
buggy, was wounded in the arm by a second
shot from the revolver.
The murderer, after firing the shots,
coolly placed the smoking weapon in his
pocket and disappeared in the woods, where
he is now supposed to be hiding. Prof.
Matchett had objected to Skene's attentions
to bis sister, and this is supposed to have
been the cause of the murder. Intense in
dignation is felt here, and if the assassin is
caught he is likely to be lynched.

SAN Fbancisco, Cal., May 5. Will
iam Henry Davenport, a brother of Fanny
Davenport, the actress, and a son of the
late E. L. Davenport, the famous actor,
committed suicide yesterday afternoon. He
was 53 years old, and a wood turner by trade.
JHe had been drinking heavily of late,
and swallowed a dose of morphine. Going
to a friend's office two nights ago, be asked
to be allowed to sleep there, as he had some
difficulty with his landlady. He slept in
the office Thursday and last night. Shortly
after noon he asked Mr. Arrington, the
friend in question, to get him some gin, as
he was ill. Before Mr. Arrington had time
to respond he heard a noise, and on turning
round saw him in the agonies ot death.

The hundreds of applicants' for office

Southerners are loath to go to "Washington
with no more definite promise from the ad

rsrxcxM, tzlzobau to the dispatch.!
Washington, May 5. What is called
the Southern situation perplexes the Presi
dent perhaps more than anything else. In
each of the States south of the Potomao.
there are from two to any higher number of
factions. The further South the worse the
distinction is. In Louisiana and Alabama
factional hostility is greater than anywhere
else. The President has recently made it
so plain that he would not displace
Democrats by Bepubllcans unless he should
be relieved lrom the necessity of choosing
between several contestants that the factions
have in- some instances come to an agree
ment, but the creater number of offices yet
remain to be filled, on account of a fack of
concord. The history of some of the con
tests for the spoils of victory in certain
States is interesting.
THE FIOHT IN LOUISIANA.
The two leading factions in Louisiana are
headed respestively by Congressman H.
Dudley Coleman, ot the Tenth 'district, em
bracing a part of the city of New Orleans,
and P. F. Herwig, a capitalist of that city,
who is chairman and principal contributor
of the Executive Committee of the State.
Mr. Herwig stays with his family
at "Willard's, where he has a suite
of rooms and dispenses hospitality with a
lavish hand. In the same hotel are quar
tered his lieutenants, ex-Senator Kellogg'
and A. S. Badger, of New Orleans. Badger
is the Herwig candidate for the office of
postmaster at New Orleans, which he once
filled, but he keeps one eye on something
else. The ex-Senator is not an applicant
for office. Having been long a leader in
Louisiana politics, he finds time, from his
business investments here, to aid the old
TVHEBE THE CO LOBED MEN ABE.
The colored men mostly adhere to theHer-wig-Kellogg
faction. Two or three sleek,
well-dressed, well-educated darkies are
always to be seen around the lobbv at Wil
lard's or standing in front of that caravan
sary or the Jfostomce Department. They
are candidates for something or other. That
fine-looking chap is addressed as colonel
and has expectation of a prominent position .
He asks for appointment as Surveyor of the
Port of New Orleans.
The head of the new-fangled . faction,
Bepresentative Coleman, is just now en
gaged at home in placating opposition to
some of his candidates. The chief objects
of his solicitude are the offices of Collector
of the Port, Postmaster and Superintendent
of the Mint. Major Andrew Hero, the
Chairman pi his Congressional committee,
and by whose aid he received the colored
vote in his recent race for Congress, is Cole
man's candidate for the Collectorship of
Customs in opposition to Chairman Herwig,
of the State Committee, who wants the
place for himself. His man for the post
office is Major Eaton, Commander of the
G. A. B. for the Department of Louisiana
EATON'S FATAL MISTAKE.
Eaton made the mistake of conducting his
candidacy on Grand Army lines, beating
the drums and blowing the cornet, but tbe
President told him plainly that the Grand
Army must not, expect anything as an
official body at the hands of this adminis
tration. Since then the Major has placed
himself entirely under the wing of Coleman.
There is a third great factor in the person
of ex-Governor Warmoutb, famous lor the
part he played in reconstruction times, and
who claims at present to be devoted to
sugar planting and railway building.
While here he professed to be doing nothing
in politics except to aid one or two of Cole
man's friends in their effoits, but Mr. "War
mouth is a very subtle and a very active
worker. He went to see the President, and
he bore away with him a sort of commission
to compose the differences in Louisiana for
the good of the party in power.
SPOKE A. TVOBD FOB HIMSELF.
It is believed that Governor Warmouth
served his own interests more than Cole
man's, for he openly advocated the appoint
ment of Dr. Smythe for the Superintenden
cy of the New Orleans mint against Cole
man's man. As to the honors in this pro
longed free fight they are easy. Coleman
was obliged to withdraw under fire bis
nominee, Knrsheedt, and select J. B. Don
nelly for Marshal of Fast Louisiana.
Badger was presented as the Herwig candi
date, but not seriously pressed.
At the Postoffice Department most of the
small number of appointments for Louis
iana in the postal service have been made
upon the indorsement of the old liners. The
"latter have gained a slight advantage over
the young blood element in Alabama, al
though the. principal contests have not been
decided. In Mississippi there is no divi
sion on such lines, or on any line of policy.
The fight is merely personal, with no
picturesque element in it. The same may
be said of North Carolina and most of the
other Southern States.
HUNDBEDS WANT EACH PLACE.
-There are hundreds of applicants for local
offices in the South here from every State,
and they make Mr. Harrison's daily life a
torture. They tell him of large trains and
prospective gains due to their special efforts,
and his acceptability to the people. But
the President has learned before now to
take these rose-colored views with sus
picion. Se far as he has a Southern policy
it is also entirely safe to say that it does not
mean an engagement to carrv out the pur
poses of any faction or individuals.
As tbe President told some of the Louisi
anians, no one man would be permitted to
control the patronage of a State. His idea
is to do the practical thing, as far as he can
see it, in every instance, no matter if it ap
pears to contradict what he did the day be
fore in another State or locality. This poli
cy is necessarily one of tergiversation. It
leads him to
GIVE OFFICES TO "WHITE MEN
recently connected with the Democratic
pariv in one place, and to bestow. them in
another upon carpet-baggers who are odious
to their neighbors. It means the appoint
ment in Bay St. Louis, Miss,, a fashionable
suburb of New Orleans, or in Halifax, the
old capital of North Carolina, of a negro at
the instance of a black Congressman or ex
Congressman. The administration, so the President told
Governor Warmouth. will avoid friction ot
the races where it is the evident purpose to
Dnua up an intelligent and respectaoie
white party, but in all such cases the
colored office seeker will receive compensa
tion for loss of Government employment at
home by the bestowal of some suit
able oeeupatlon ia the District of
Columbia, x, TJw negro- Tutors .i8
do not swear to relish this little arrange
ment. Some of them suspect that the suit
able employment will not be agreeable.
They don't want to wait at a door, and they
ddefare that they cannot afford to bring
their families here and reside here at the
salaries paid to the small places that will
be awarded.to the negroes.

When tha pulse beats feebly: when the ener

sleep uncertain, then tbe body is in a condition
of actual "low life." No matter what the causes
may hare been Nature has dren way, and un
less her strength is restored, disease is certain

any doctor does in such a case is to assist Na
