B SENATORS DAUGHTER
BY A WASHINGTON AUTHOR.
-WBITTE1T FOB THE DISPATCH.
"She speaks English with the prettiest
little French accent you ever heard, hut
she told me her parents were Americans,"
said Mr. Frank Eberle, correspondent of
the Metropolitan Courier.
"Told you! You have met her then," ex
claimed young Caxton, of Caxtonia, a mil
lionaire cotton planter by inheritance, of
vast accomplishments, in "Washington train
ing for a career in the Senate when one of
the old Senators from his State should die
or resign, if that time ever came.
The two were conversing together in the
drawing room of Secretary Hamilton on the
occasion of a recepcion at which the Presi
dent and his wile and all the high officials
of the Government were piesent. Among
other things young Caxton was looking out
for as an aid to a brilliant public career was
a wile whom he could esteem as the equal
of himself in breeding and education; the
most beautiful of her kind, irreproachable
as puritv itself, a fit partner in the tem
perate expenditure of his comfortable in
come. Caxton was old enough and had had
enough of flirtation to wear his early notions
of love and romance somewhat threadbare,
and his search lor a wife partook very much
of the business-like methods with which he
studied public life and the machinery by
which most successful politicians win suc
cess. As he stopped for a moment to chat
with Eberle and watch the passing mob he
had uttered an exclamation of astonishment
when his eye caught the figure of a young
woman leaning on the arm of ex-Senator
Drake, who had just returned from a long
"She is the most beautiful creature I have
ever seen," said Caxton with great enthu
siasm. "Who can she be?"
"Tes, she is very beautiful. She is ilrs.
Fardella, and that is about all I can tell
vou. She is the widow of an Italian of
that name, a gentleman of great wealth who
died two or three vears ago, and leU his vast
estates to her, which include a big castle
somewhere in the Maritime Alps, between
Turin and Genoa. She passes her time
visiting the capitals or the world apparently,
and is now making a first call upon us in
America. I met her in this way: Djemlab,
the Turkish decorator, was sent for to ar
range the tapestries, portieres, rugs, crock
ery, pictures, and so on, which she brought
over to furnish her rooms, though it is said
she is here only lor the season. Knowing
mv own fancy for such work he invited me
toco with him, as he had been told the
ttufl was of the most costly and exquisite of
its kind. During our stay she chatted
freelv of her travels, her love of the arts,
and "all that, and I found myself uncon
sciously fascinated as I never was before
with the conversation ol a woman. You
know I am a cynic in my judgment ol the
"But she didn't tell you of her husband
and castles and the rest?"
"Oh, no, that came trom Drake. He met
her in Paris, and it is through Mrs. Drake
that she gained her entrance easily to the
inner circle here. Drake and his wife were
invited once to an evening in the salon of
Madame Edmond Adam, and met her there,
and that, of course, was a guarantee of her
reputation, though I don't know why it
"Reputation!" exclaimed Caxton indig
nantly, "I would stake my life that she is
as pure as the purest of her sex."
"You know very well nobody would take
the stakes if you lost," growled Eberle as
he walked away.
Caxton at once sought ex-Senator Drake,
hoping through him to secure an introduc
tion, hut found that gentleman quarreling
over politics with his successor who had de
feated him, and several others, all of the
same party, but full of differences of opinion
in private discussion. Mrs. Fardella was
the center of a group of ladies who were evi
dently charmed by the remarkable person
ality which had in a moment caught the
fancy of the really unsusceptible Caxton.
Mrs. Hamilton and Mrs. Drake were of
these admirers. Mrs. Drake was telling
bow Mrs. Fardella had taken by storm
those present at Madame Adam's by her
playing and'singing, and there was a unan
imous request that the stranger would take
her seat at the piano. Alter a moment of
mental protest- against the bad taste of
forcing her to the front upon so short an ac
quaintance, Mrs. Fardella consented. For
a little time she sat at the instrument and
her eyei assumed a far-away look as though
Ehe were losing all thought of her sur
roundings; then she toyed with the
keys as" though waiting to know
whether thev would respond to what was
passing in her lancv. From that she drifted
into an improvisation unlike anything ever
heard before by any of that" assembly.
Every human emotion and passion was por
trayed so clearly and thrillingly that the
most stupid and unmusical ears caught the
interpretation. All the phases of human
life, the ease and luxury oi the rich and the
hunger and wailing of" the poor, doubt and
recklessness, purity and bestiality, love and
hate, faith and infidelity, were recited as
though from an open book. The peace and
harmony of pastoral life mingled with the
rush and roar of the city, and the statelv
and reverential measures of a grand mass
were interrupted by the wildest of Dac
chanalian revels. Then the player broke
forth into the song of the toreador from
"Carmen," glided without a jar into the
heart-broken strains of "Spirto Gentil,"
and ended with a Tyrolese air in the dialect
of the natives which set everybody patting
with their feet, and some ot" the younger
people were irresistibly impelled to whirl
through a mad waltz to the music of the
The company were so impressed with the
strange character of the performance
that compliments were rather strained, and
Mrs. Fardella, to these formal words, merely
eaid that she could not play to her own sat
isfaction except for those whom she knew
"By heaven!" muttered young Caxton to
himself, "I don't believe another creature
exists who is equal to that, and yet anyone
would know it was mere by-play, and
scarcely a suggestion of her real power with
the instrument and voice."
"What a genius she is," exclaimed Sec
"Or devil, which is about the same thing,"
said Eberle, whose cynical soul had not
been so stirred in long years.
"Drake, can't you tell us who and what
she is?" asked the Secretary of the ex-Senator.
"I don t believe anybody, even her most
intimate friend can do that." answered
Drake. "You might infer from her lovely,
tawny complexion that she is Italian, but
I was told in Paris that she is of American
parentage, though born in Italy. Possibly
the heat of Genoese suns gave her that gen
uine Italian flesh color when she was wont
to run bareheaded among the Alps. When
very young she was married to a wealthy
Italian who was a sort of recluse and philoso
pher, and harbored social theories even more
radical than those of Garibaldi and Cavour,
which it is whispered were fully absorbed hv
his beautiful wife. Since the death of he'r
husband several years ago, Mrs. Fardella
has passed most of her time in Paris, but
makes strange and sudden excursions to all
the great capitals, where she will appear as
though by magic, set up a splendid estab
lishment in a night, move in a keenlv obser
rant .way in the very best soc'iety of
the court circle for a brief time, though
apparently holding society in con
tempt, and then disappear without warn
ing, as mysteriouslyas she came, to turn up
in some other place in the same way. With
all this strange life not a whisper has ever
been heard against her reputation. The
roues of the court circles are said to have
been always abashed in her presence, and
the only gentlemen who have ever had the
least condescension from her are devotees of
nhilotoDhv. science and art. and these hare
been permitted only the most distant and
discreet friendship. Her intimates in the 1
circle of Madame Adam say that she is
really the most profound and brilliant
woman of the time, but except to a few
choice spirits she surrounds herself with an
impenetrable reserve. She is said to be
able to improvise and recite her poetry like
Corinne, to have a more varied and perfect
control of the piano than Liszt, who was
one of her instructors, to sing as no other
woman ever did, to paint like a master and
write and talk like a savant."
"A sort of 'She' in real life, as it were,"
"But you have seen her paintings,
Eberle," said Caxton, "what did you think
"Well, theyareremarkabie for a woman.
They are wonderfully broad and luminous
and beautiful in tone, but she often sacri
fices composition and mere beauty for
realism. Her subjects are the list vou
would imagine as the choice of such a
woman, being chiefly of the horrible, the re
production of crime and misery with ter
rible truthfulness. But of course I had but
a hasty view of them, and cannot speak con
clusively of their merit."
"I have heard," said Drake, resuminghis
story to end it, "that in St Petersburg she
came so near justifying the acts of the Ni
hilists as to be threatened with arrest, and
that nothing saved her but her beauty and
brilliancy, and the fact that women loved
her as well as men. She flirted with nobody,
sought to attract nobody, and so made no
body jealous. It is said the best women
worship her wherever she goes."
"And one man at least could worship her
now," thought young Caxton, as he sought
the place where Mrs. Fardella had been,
only to find that she had ordered her car
riage and gone home.
It was but a little while, however, before
Caxton gained the coveted introduction, and
he at once proceeded to devote himself with
all his ardor to Mrs. Fardella. If theie
were others who had an ambition to be suit
ors they desisted when he showed by his at
tentions that he was badly hit; for no one
would pretend to a fighting chance with the
handsome, rich and accomplished young
Southron as his antagonist It was an open
field lor a scion of one of the proudest and
oldest families of the South, which was less
hurt by the War of the Rebellion than mo;t
other families of distinction, and which had
shown more pluck and cunning than most
ot them in repairing what was shattered.
What astonished them who had been con
vinced of the unimpressionable character
ot the woman was that Mrs. Fardella ap
parently encouraged the attentions of Cax
ton, with neither a suggestion of a flirtation
nor yet of serious purpose, as though luring
him to some point she had in view, and yet
holding him aloof.
"It was in this room I first saw you,"
Caxton murmered to Mrs. Fardella one
evening late in the season, and at the last
formal reception at the house of Secretary
Hamilton. "I am negotiating for the pur
chase of the place. I want it for that mem
ory if for nothing more."
"What a pity the boutbern poetry and
romance, of which your mind seems to be
the outgrowth, should be so commingled
with a history of brutal torture and wrongs
so horrible that they cannot be named,"
said Mrs. Fardella.
"Why do you always answer my kindliest
sentiments with references to such unpleas
"Because I can never separate one of your
class from memories of the anguish of the
slave. Just as I hold every good man re
sponsible for the brutal condition into which
the workingpeople of the world are thrust."
"But we must wait for time to correct
these things, and meanwhile "
"And meanwhile let millions starve and
drift into lives of crime on account of the
unequal conditions. Oh, I know what you
would have said, that meanwhile we should
not make ourselves miserable on account of
what we cannot possiblv remedy. Well,
whathall we do to forget it all?"
"Go into the conservatory and talk of the
loves ot the flowers, said Caxton, laughing.
"Their loves? Yes, but they neithei
marry nor are given in marriage," rejoined
this strange woman. "Do you know," she
continued,"that the best thing in Washing
ton society is its suggestion of the freedom
of nature? With the exaggerated stories of
my career always traveling with me 1 do
not suppose I could have gained entrance
to what is called 'the best circles' in any
other city of America, you ire so careful of
outward appearances, "though secretly so
like the rest of the world. Here I find one
may be the subject of scandal and lies, and
at the same time a welcome visitor, with no
higher recommendation than a show of
wealth, or official position or associations.
By the way, you tell me you aim at public
lite; what do you intend to do when you tret
"The first thing to do is to get there,"
"Suppose you were in the Senate now;
what would you do?"
'Very much as the others do, I suppose,
to the extent of my abilities."
"One hundred years of your Senate has
produced 1,000,000 men constantly lack
ing work by which to earn bread. That
means 5,000,000 paupers. Will, 100
years more, with a Senate composed of such
ambitious gentlemen as yourself, produce
"If you had lived in France in '93 1
could imagine you plotting along with
Madame Hebert and Charlotte Cordav."
"And in'France in another '93 I may be
found plotting with greater women than
either Hebert or Corday," said Mrs.
Fardella in a low tone and "with much em
phasis. "Ah," said Caxton, "I am sure-you were
not made for that Why, the thought is
simply horrible. This is'a day of growing
humanity and liberty, and revolntions are
accomplished by means of the ballot and
ruling sentiment, and not by plotting and
"Will you revolutionize the prejudice
against the negro in your Southern States
by means of the ballot?" asked Mrs. Far
della with unconcealed irony.
"Oh, the negro question is a great prob
lem," said Caxton with sudden coolness
and reserve. "We have the spectacle of an
intelligent white people overruled by the
mere numbers of a people brutal, indolent,
unpriucipled, without moral sense, and by
reason of insurmountable differences an in
ferior race now and for all time. The South
ern white cannot and will not submit to any
control from such creatures. After the war
and so-called reconstruction we were timid
for a time. We were defeated nd dis
mantled. It was the sentiment of the
victors that the former slave should
now be the master by means
of the ballot We bowed for a while to that
dictum. The time for submission is past,
and every day the whites are weakening the
power of the blacks. Soon, and the sooner
the better for them and-us, thev will have
no control in our State or national Govern
ment We can rule better for them than
they for themselves. They must be entirely
disfranchised in fact if not in name."
"In other words, you are aboat to repeat
on a colossal scale ,an injustice to the negro
as great as that which resulted in your ruin
a quarter of a century ago, and after the ne
gro has been humanized and made ready
and eager to tight for himself. Well, your
punishment will assuredly and deservedly
be a thousand fold greater than it was be
fore. The spirit of this time will admit of
no such outrage without tull compensa
tion." "But for Heaven's sake, mydearmadame,
let us not drift into these questions. I have
something to say to you of far more im
portance to me than a solution of social
problems. Let me approach it as frankly as
I can, for you are not the woman nor I'the
mau tor dramatic love-making. I need not
tell you that I have surrendered to you all
there is that is lofty and precious in my
hopes for the future, and that since the first
moment I met you and looked into your
eyes, though yon are somewhat beyond me,
1 have understood enough oi your glorious I
personality to know that I shall never meet
another woman who can awaken in me the
devotion I feel toward you. It is you, or
chaos come again. Though I can say this
calmly, my ambitions, my existence depends
on yonr answer, for without you I shall
simply live out my days an animated em
bodiment of death. I know there is no use
of pleading. You have known what must
come, and if you have not decided to accept,
nothing that I can say will change such a
mind as yours."
"I have expected this declaration," said
Mrs. Fardella, quietly, "and decided to ac
cept But wait; save your expressions of
gratification till you have heard me through.
You know nothing of me. It seems to me
that one so proud of his family should in
quire carefully into the life and ancestry of
the woman he would marry. Instead of that
I fear you have permitted yourself to be
enamored of my eccentricities, which some
are pleased to ca'll genius, and of my accom
plishments, which consist merely of doing
some things that other women do not do, and
other things better than other women do, and
none of them of real value to the world."
"I care nothing about your family or your
life," exclaimed Caxton with much feeling.
"With ordinary women I would think much
of that, but you overshadow every considera
tion of money, of lamily, even of reputation
"You fancy so now, hut I cannot let you
go farther in the dark. You know I was
born of American parents. Well, my
father was in the Senate of the United
States before the war. After the outbreak
of the war he sent my mother to Europe,
followed us a little later, and there after a
few months I was born at a country honse
near the village of Isola, on the northern
slope of the Maritime Alps, not far lroni
Genoa, and on the very estate which was
afterward inherited by the gentleman who
became my husband. Here is a miniature
portrait of my father; perhaps you will
recognize him. It is a beautiful picture
and was painted from life by Finelli, of
Borne, who at the same time, when my
father visited us after the war, paiuted a
companion portrait of my mother."
Caxton took the bit of "ivory in his hands,
looked at it a moment, and exclaimed:
"Senator Vinton! why I knew him well
when I was a boy. He was of my own
State, and an intimate friend of my father.
A puzzled expression overspread Caxton's
face, and when (he looked inquiringly at
Mrs. Fardella he saw something in her eyes
that made him tremble with a terrible fore
boding. "But," he resumed hesitating, "pardon
me, I have alwsys heard that Senator Vin
ton's wife died cnildless."
"And she did," said Mrs. Fardella with
perfect composure. "This is the portrait of
Caxton eagerly seized the second minia
ture. Looking "at it his eyes dilated, his
lower jaw dropped, he clutched at his hair
with his right hand ana gaspea:
"And she was "
"A quadroon; my father's slave; my own
mother and one of the most beautiful wo
men that ever won the love of man. Finelli
caught the tone of her flesh with wonderful
fidelity. My father worshiped, her, and
lavished upon her and me the tenderest care
and the noblest love. You know he did not
join in the war. He came to us and he and
my mother died in Italy. The taint of the
African and the ban ot illegitimacy was
upon me, but Signore Fardella was superior
to such considerations and saw only the
mind and the moral principle."
But Caxton heard not a word of this.
Sitting a moment rigid as though struck to
death, he staggered to his feet, shaking,
clutching frantically at his throat, and then
fell at length among the flowers of Secretary
Hamilton's conservatory. There was a rush
of guests around him, and many exclama
tions of alarm and inquiry.
"I fear Mr. Caxton has fainted," said
Mrs. Fardella calmly.

ment Continued Public sndPri
vnto Cnbles Decidedly Bear
ish Porll Active and
Chicago In the speculative branch of the
wheat trade to-day there was a continuation of
yesterday's weakness, prices showing further
depreciation. News was in the main bearish,
and so was local sentiment The most import
ant piece of news was a dispatch from Minne
apolis saying that owing to the failure of all
but four elevators In that city to comply with
the new.law and thus become regular, 1,000,000
bushels of wheat will disappear from the
stocks there in the next report. Next in Im
portance as a bear factor was the report that
the Kansas Board of Agriculture estimating
the crop of that State at 35,000,000 bushels, or
19,000,000 bushels in excess of "the yield of 1888.
Selling orders from the Northwest were re
ceived. Receiving houses here are getting orders to
sell Kansas No. 3 red wheat in 60,000 bushel
lots to arrive. There was pretty large trade
in the pit for a Saturday. Temporary strength
was developed early by the covering of two or
three large lines of shorts, but the undertone
was weak and the bears were In control most of
the session. The net decline for the leading
futures was Hc and the closing figures
were within a small fraction of the bottom for
the day and week. There was general liquida
tion by discouraged longs, and some selling for
account of Eastern parties. Both public and
private cables noted dull and easier markets.
A moderate specnlative trade was transacted
in corn, and the feeling developed was weaker
on September, while the other f utnres showed
but little change compared with yesterday's
closing flgnres. About the only feature was
the free selling of September by a prominent
local trader, which reduced the premium of
that future so that now it is quotable about the
same as October.
Trading in oats was fair for May, but for
other months very little business transpired.
There was liberal buying orders for May at the
insiae ana lair oserings at me outsiuo ngures,
and the market held steady at a slight decline.
Considerable Interest was manifested in mess
pork, and speculative trading was quite active
and almost exclusively in October and January
deliveries. The feeling was somewhat unset
tled and prices irregular, the former ruling So
higberand the latter 7X10c lower. The mar
ket closed at about outsidefiguresfortbo form
er and inside for the latter.
A comparatively light business was reported
in lard, and the feeling was steady. Sales were
made at about yesterday's range of prices.
In short no sides a moderately active trade
was reported, and the market was steadier.
Prices ruled so&ewhat Irregular and averaged

Office of Pittsburg Dispatch.
Satukdat, September 7, 1889. (
The marked features of trade in produce
lines for tne.week were the upward drift of
peaches and eggs. Last week we had a
feast of peaches, this week there has been a
famine. The Western Pennsylvania and
Eastern Ohio crop this season is practically
a failure. The sections that are famed with
a good crop, such as Delaware and Southern
Ohio, have enough to do to supply demand
nearer home. During most of the week
there was a scarcity of peaches in this mar
ket, and fancy stock sold quickly at advanced
rates. To-day supply Is better, and markets
It is, however, an assured fact that we are
not going to have the low prices which pre
vailed last season. The last opportunity for
cheap peaches passed by a couple of weeks ago.
Choice eggs are active at a range fully 2c per
dozen above that of last week. Ohio oheese
has been advanced at headquarters during the
week, but Pittsburg jobbers, true to their In
stincts and habits, hold on to old prices. A.
rise is almost sure to come in a iew uajn.
Choice grades of butter are quoted the same as
a week ago, but the drift is plainly upward.
Oranges and lemons have advanced and are
firmly held at the advance. Choice stock Is
very Ann at outside quotations. Sweet pota
toes, tomatoes, cantaloups and grapes are all
tenalne toward lower prices, owing to liberal
Inspection of our domestic market colnmn
will disclose the fact that receipts of grain,
hay and flour were unusually large for the
week. The drift ot prices is uownwaru an
along the cereal 'line. Corn prospects have
greatly Improved the past month and another
two weeks without frost will put the crop out
of danger and insure an average yield. As to
wheat, oats and hay, the yield through Pitts
burg's territory is equal to any past season In
quantity and quabty alike. Flour has de
clined f nlly 25c per barrel in the week past
A leading jobber reports trade active, but
at concessions to buyer, and collections very
slow. The cash buyer has immensely the ad
vantage these times of low prices and close
margins. Jobbers like the sight of banknotes
and the buver who is readv to put down the
stuff has the advantage every time. The ad
vantage of having cash will furnish a fair
profit to the buyer these times.
Hides Looking Up.
Prices are unchanged but firmer. The pres
ent Is the best season of the year fortrade, par
ticularly for heavy hides. Now tanners lay in
their heaviest supplies, for the reason that
quality of hides from now till cold weather Is
at its best. Nature, which tempers the wind
to the shorn lamb, also puts heavy hair on
steers in cold weather. This heavy clothing
accumulates dirt and adds weight to the hide,
tor which the tanner receives no equivalent.
Hence the disposition to lay in large stocks at
this season of tho year.
Two large firms, of New York and Chicago,
were represented by agents here this week,
buying up calfskins. Supplies were far in ex
cess of their wants. Out of over 20,000 cured
calfskins in the hands of dealers here but 8,000
were purchased, and this at figures below any
thing for the past 30 or more years. The price
paid for No. 1 calfskins weighing 7 to 12 pounds
was 6c and from 12 to. 15 pounds Cc; No. 2
skins rated 2cjlower than these figures.
Following are prices as furnished by James
Callerv & Co.:
'No. 1 green salted steers. 60 pounds and
No. 1 green salted cows, all weights
No. 1 green salted hides. An to 60 pounds..
No. I green salted hides, 25 to 40 pounds..

A representative of the largest harness
leather tannery of Allegheny said to-day: "Our
volume of trade for August was beyond that of
any previous month. Orders came in that
conld not be accepted for want of goods.
Thongh the capacity of Allegheny harness
leather tanneries has been increased fully 23
percent the past two years, stock was never
more closely cleaned up at this time of the
year. Prices have failed to advance and profits
are very small. A month or two ago, however,
there was practically no price for our goods,
and it looked as if we would be forced to carry
over a large amount of stock. Now markets
are firm and the drift is upward."
In the past two weeks there has been a suffi
cient drop in wool to knock out speculators
who were not very solid. A decline of 3c per
pound is reported. The speculative spirit ran
very high last month, and, in the language of
one of our dealers, "people went crazy on
wool." A drop of 3c oer pound on the new pull
in the past two weeks is apt to diminish the
bank account of not a few who looked for wool
to go the other direction.
Consummation of One of the Biggest Denis
Ever Undertaken Here millions of
One of the most important financial trans
actions that have ever taken place in Pitts
burg has just been closed up, The H. C.
Frick Coke Company having made the

Heretofore it has been the custom in large
deals of this kind to apply to Eastern trust
companies. It is agreeable to note that
this is no longer necessary, nor in any way
excusable, as there are home institutions of
sufficient standing to attend to any business of
a financial nature, no matter how great the
The success attending the placing of this
large loan is quite a triumph for Pittsburg,
showing, as it ooes. that she is fully competent
to manago her own affairs without outside
help, and. If need be. to lend a helping hand to
her sister cities in time of need. It is to be
hoped that this transaction will open the way
to others of equal or even greater importance.
Pittsburg is fortunate among cities. She is
almost self-sustaining. Being a creditor, there
is a steady stream of money flowing into her
lap, to be used in the expansion of local busi
ness. What she has is her own, to do with it
as sho elects. This gives her standing in the
financial world, antl Is a certain guarantee
against reverses. A crash that would shake
Pittsburg would leave very little standing of
any other city in the Union.
And so, under highly favorable conditions,
this hive of industry, this financial Gibraltar,
is entering upon the fall and winter campaign
under able generals and with a full commissa
riat. All of her great Indu-tnes are keeping
step to the music of improvement. Already
far In advance of the business of last year, the
remaining months of 1B89 will show still greater
expansion. All that is needed to meet the ex
pectations ot the most exuberant fancy is strict
adherence to the enlightened, but, at the same
time, conservative, polloy, which has hitherto
been the guiding star of all her business yen
turps. The scheme for changing moving day to May
lis not dead by any means, but only sleeping.
The committee in whose hands the matter rests
has delayed action on account of the absence
of a large number of property holders during
the summer. As they are returning, the propo
sition will soon be put In shape, for final action.
That," change Is necessary from almost
every f&ot of view, and In the interest of tbo
health and comfort of the large community of
'flitters,' and of no possible detriment to the
landlords. Is generally admitted, and that it will
be adopted there is scarcely a doubt. Its popu
larity will carry it through.
