He Makes a Sweeping Denial of Hia life's Charges for Divorce. MRS. CEOSSLEI'S CASE DISMISSED. Bchool Board Mnst Show Why Failed to Provide Teachers. They TITO WITS BOB UP FOE OXE HUSBAXD. "William W. Uisbet filed an answer yes terday to the petition filed by his wife, Vir ginia E. N isbet, in the divorce proceedings now pending between them. He terms her assertions "manilold untruths, uncertain ties and imperfections," and avers she has not demeaned herself as a dutiful and affec tionate wile, hot by the indulgence of vio lent temper and by giving herself up to questionable practices, has imbittered his life. He denies the allegation that during August, September and October ot 18S8 he forced her to leave his house by cruel treat ment He also denies the statement that he gave her drugs. He alleges that she made an unlawful request and he declined to grant it. She then became enraged and made threats. He told her he would not permit her to do any violence. When he said to her, "I am your hus- band,etc,"she said: "Are you; Idon't know whether you are or not." She also made use of the expression: "I am now on the verge of plnnging myself into the gilded life of infamy anyway." Fearing she would do herself some injury, the respondent alleges be went to her physician and warned him that he would prosecute anyone who would assist her in her designs. He avers he did all in his power to make her comfortable and happy until he became confident of her infidelity, notwithstanding she had on occasions threatened, in foul and profane language, to take his life, and in the presence of visitors at home cursed and swore because he refused, in the middle of tbe night, to get her beer. Her temper, he alleges, was so violent that she tore a screen from a window and threatened to jnmpont. The respondent pleads this answer as a bar to her suit, and asks that it be dis missed. HIS WIVES FACED HIM. IIueo Wncner on Trial for Desertion Is Charged With Bicamy. Among the desertion cases before Judge White, yesterday, was one which developed a sensation. It was that of Hngo W. Wagner, called to answer a charge of desertion preferred by his wife Catharine. She stated that they were married in May, 18S7, in Philadelphia. He was a cook at the Broad street station in Philadelphia, and over a year ago was transferred to the i TJnion depot, Pittsburg. She came on also afterward, but he began to neglect her, and she investigated and found that he was married to and living with another woman, Sarah Jane Pollin. At this a young and good looking woman came forward, and announced herself as Mrs. Wajjner also. She produced a mar riage certificate, showing that she had been married here in July, 18S9. She had thought him a single man. He went by ihe name of Charles W. Wagner. Wagner, in answer to these statements, claimed that he was not legally married to Mrs. Wagner No. 1, as she had a husband living. She replied that he was dead when she married Wagner. Wagner added that he had been advised by his attorney that he could marry and had done so. Judge White remarked that itiras a seri ous case, and ordered Wagner committed to jail. County Detective Xanghnrst afterward went belore Alderman McMasters and lodged an information against Wagner for bigamy. A hearing was fixed for Monday. OF INTEREST TO TAXPAYERS. The Conn Decides an Important Clause Is Unconstitutional. A decree was rendered yesterday in the case of the appeal of the Pittsburg, Virgi nia and Charleston Eailroad Company from the city assessment on property on the Southside. The property had been assessed to "unknown owners." It consisted ot a large number of lots which had been sold to the railroad company, and they appealed from the assessment, claiming that the val uation was excessive. An important ruling was made by the Court in the decree ren dered. It stated that it appears to the Court that the first provision of Section 23 of the act of June 14. 1887, is unconstitutional and void, and that the valuation placed on the prop erty of the petitioners in this case is in ac cordance therewith and is illegal and void, and the valuation is set aside and the pro jv erty valncd in accordance with the agree ment of counsel. The clause of the section declared by the Court to be unconstitutional reads as follows: "When the ownership of a lot is unknown the claim shall be filed against 'unknown owner' and indexed accordinirlv." fc This decision seemingly makes it obliga tory on the part of the city to discover who is the owner before thev can file a claim for taxes, etc MILLER'S AXSWEE. He Denies That His Father's Mind Wns Weak When He Made His Will. Florence C. Miller, Esq., yesterday filed in the Orphans Court an answerto the petition of his brother, Hampton J. Miiler. in the contest of his father's will. In the answer of Florence Miller he denies all the allegations made. He refutes the state ments that his father. Alexander H. Miller, was incapable of making a will because of his mind having been weakened lrom habitual and excessive inebriation, and that he was controlled and guided by fraud. Also he stated that no undue influence was brought to prejudice his father against other members of the familv. TODNG BARRISTERS. Twelve More Sindents Permitted to Stndy Lair. The students who passed the preliminary examination last week for admission to the bar were registered yesterday. There were 12 passed out of the 19 examined. They were Messrs. Ewing, Vaill, Kantz, Hay maker, Jones, Linhart, Hunter, CIngston, Monroe, Douchoo, McGeagh and Miller. The result of the final examination of the eight candidates who were before the Ex amining Board last week has not yet been announced. HIS UNEXPECTED ANSWER. Mclntyre Claims His Wife's Mother Keeps n Spenk-Ensy. Another desertion case before Judge White yesterday resulted in the discovery of a "speak-easy." Terrence Mclntyre was being examined on the charge of desertion, preferred by his wife. He answered her tale by saying that she spent too much time at her mother's "speak-easy" on Forbes street In answerto questions put by the Court he said that his wife's mother is Mrs. Marv Murphy, and he bought liquor there three weeks ago. Mrs. Mclntyre interrupted bv saying that it was not a speak-easy case but a desertion case. After a few more questions he Judge continued the cue until next Saturday. g'Hiitiirririiiiiii TBE CASE DISMISSED. Judge White Thought Din. Dewey Intended So Violence. 4 The case of Mrs Dr. Crossley against Mrs. Dr. Dewey for surety of the peace was heard before Jndge White yesterday. The trouble had arisen irom jealousy concerning Dr. Dewey. Mrs. Dewey was represented by John S. Lambie, and Mrs. Crossley by E. II. Johnston. It was stated that Mrs. Dewey had threatened to kill Mrs. Crossley, and again had said that she would blacken her eyes. Mrs. Dewey related the interest displayed between Dr. Dewey .and Mrs. Crossley, and said that on one occasion she had put her arms around Mrs. Crossley's waist to remove her from her husband's ofhee. She had been excited when she used the language accused of, but she would not do Mrs. Crossley the slightest injury. Judge White said he did not think that Mrs. Dewey had intended any violence, and he dismissed tbe case. He advised Mrs. Dewey to conduct herself with decorum, and then if her husband preferred the other woman to her, she would in no way be in volved in the responsibility. Monday's Audit 1.1st.

Some of the Southern Colored Baptists Are for a Fence Policy. Indiaxatolis, September 14. The negro Baptists resumed the discussion of the outrages again to-day. Rev. T. Ii. Jor dan, of Mississippi, made a speech depre cating the remarks advocating violence in return for Southern wrongs, as it places a mass of helpless colored people at the mercies of the criminal classes of the South. Others of the Mississippi delegation talked in the same vein, anj resolutions were final ly introduced and adopted to the effect that the "Colored people cultivate a friendly re lation with those among whom they live." .rresiaent iove Became very wroth at the passage of the resolutions and made a speech, retelling the story of the assault upon himself, and said that the passage of the resolutions would make it apparent that there had not been an assault, and that they had made false, statcsments. This cansed much excitement and tbe vote was recon sidered and the resolution tabled. The members of the Mississippi delegation in sisted, however, upon their names going on record as being opposed to violence, and this was allowed. A CRUSADE AGAINST CAES. Rev. Father Walivortb Thinks They Wonld Make Too Much Noise. Saratoga, 2T. "ST., September 14. The Rev. Father Walworth of St Mary's Cath olic Church, Albany, last Sunday indulged in a bitter denunciation of that spirit of mammon which would desecrate the church and interrupt the solemnity of its serv ice by bringing the noise of the com merce of the world so near as to be heard by the worshipers at its altars. He especially exhorted his congregation to "protect the church from the hideous electric poles. The uuu rumDiing ot tne cars, he said, "would greatly disturb the services on Sundays and week days alike. Once let the electric rail way be introduced into the city and every church will be liable to be disturbed by such a nuisance." He used the texts, "Ye cannot serve God and mammon," "Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil." He demanded "the defense of the church and its altars atrajnst such an invasion of her sanctities as is involved in the proposed running of street railways in front of her doors." A Tramp Trust. Special Officer Cook, of the Pittsburg and Lake Erie road captured two gentlemen at large, who were attempting to steal a jaunt on a freight train, at Homestead bridce ves- Vterday evening. He invested them with the order ot the steel bracelet and Jert them with thetelegraph operator. The tramps giving their words as gentlemen to- remain where they were, the officer went to dinner. When he returned he found that the prisonersxre- garaiess oi tneir parole a nonneur, had quietly skipped off, hand cuffj and all. They have not since communicated with the trustful officer.

THE COLOR USE DEAWN TEEI TAUT ICOnRESPONnENCE OF THE DISPATCH. 1 Coffetville, Miss., September 12. Again the race problem agitates the public mind, but it is one which the people of the South must work ont for themselves. With the change in the administration came the renewal of the question as to "equality of rights," but if the problem receives a just and methodical solution, it must be studied from a Southern standpoint and from South ern associations. In the North, where no such danger as negro majority can be felt, the gravity of the situation is not appreci ated. Theory is good, but the philanthropic North is not yet ready to be dominated over by the African as he is .then why theorize for the South? The North is noted Tor its publicly ex pressed love for the black man who does not lire in the North but when the appoint ment of a negro postmaster was made in Ala bama tho sentiment of the press spoke the voice of the people when it said, "All right so long as it is done in Alabama. White supremacy reigns here, and by tbe eternal fitness of things we intend it shall continue prevailing." If about one-half the negro population of the Sonth conld go up North, and an equal num ber of whites take their places in the South, it would make such an equal division of color that the "race problem" could be studied to good advantage by tbe Northern fanatic The North wonld fight to the bitter end if com pelled to accept any other than white suprem acy, yet are over ready to talk of "equal rights," and moralize over the oppression of the Southern negro. Under a government like ours there can be no law against THE LAW OF PUBLIC OPINION. We refuse to receive the Chinaman, either as a serf or an equal, yet he is the representa tive of a powerful nation. In the redskin, whom we have dispossessed of his original rights, we recognize no equality, while the descendant of the barbarous black, whose tribe on the Golden Coast still trembles before a fetish, may now sit at tbe desk of Clay or Cal houn! Truly, the fancied threads ot ethical casuistry are hard to unravel. Within the past 23 years the North and the South have together contributed $40,000,000 to the education of the freedmen, yet tbe im provement, except in individual cases, is not noticeable. Evcrv Northern man who goes to tfie South for other than political reasons naturally comes to sympathize with the race feeling of the native whites there. Every year there arrives a handful ofmenwltha mission a mission to keep other people's consciences often to tbe neglect of that charity which be gins at home. From the cargo of slaves from Afric's land, the race has Increased to millions, and with tbe rapidly increasing population the Southern country has every reason to feel that the day uui iur uisiauL wueu me uueoear oi negro domination must be met The Southern negro, depending upon tho people of his coun try for his very daily sustenance, has every right to lend his vote to the interests of the Slate, but ruled by the overtures of Northern politicians, the great mass of colored voters stand by th party that gave them the ballot, and vote against the interests of those upon whom he depends for bread and clothing. The advance agent of the Northern politician nas made of tho negro a political serf. The glit tering display that the spoils seeker makes his fawning, flattering words, his promises of golden days, when the "40 acres and the mule" are held out as delusive temptations, bave made the negro break faith with his best friend. It is a simple tale and plausable, too. but oh, tho untold misery that lollows it I The poi son has become thoroughly inocnlated, ana there is little hope that the colored pecple will ever recover from its:effect. As a race there seems to be nothing in their present condition to encourage even THE FAINTEST HOPE that they will ever adopt those habits of life that lead to prosperity. While they may enjoy a practical monopoly of farm labor on the best lands of tbe States, they prove themselves totally devoid of any characteristic that makes good tenantry. It is frequently the case that almost every farm band in the neighborhood will abandon his crop at the most critical time to go on some excursion; his character is de void of reason and judgment. . His one thought is for the present sacrificing anything for a present desire. An incident that occurred last year illustrates the negro character faithfully. Late in the winter, when a light snow covered the ground, an old negro went to town with neither shoes nor socks. Tbe sight of tho old man's bare feet so wrought upon a kind-hearted merchant's feelings taut he called him in and gave him a pair of brogans and warm socks. In less than an hour the old sinner sold both for a drink of whisky, and wadedibome rich as Croesus. The negro's love of a festal time is proverbial; he has his corn shuckings, his log rollings, his quiltingbees, and every work is made to yield its element to frolic. He is not ambitious. For days and weeks he will live frugally on cornbread and bacon, with an occasional 'possum canght in the night hunt, when, all at once, his savings will bo spent in one evening in a happy, care less way; crowds of his dusky friends will gather in, the music of the fiddlo and the banjo will bo heard, tbe patting and tbe boxing and the "hoe-down" convince that he is contented and as well off as he would be anywhere else. So we seo he remains undisturbed by change of condition, and little inclined to push for more. n oneimngine -coiorea individual" ot tne South has changed, and that is in his right to swear aloud a privilege that many f teedmen value next to liberty. Cries of the most pro fane character resonnd throughout the fields as this Senegambian combats with some head strong mulo or some underling in the field. The moralist who anticipatea that emancipa tion would bring in its train all the courtesies, with all the virtues, will of course be shocked. The negro has his position in the South, and receives A CHARACTERISTIC KINDNESS that he never meets with in tho North. Not one need go hungry none cold. Charity sees no one suffer. There are tics that are felt in a hundred ways. Children love the old nurse; that old butler is humored, and here and there a sham invalid is indulged. Tbe "color line" is undoubtedly drawn, and necessarily, too, for the negro is of another race, and since the days of Ham has had his position in the wola's history. The negro, too, is an aristocrat, and draws the "color line" at the "poor white trash" of tho South. . Tho Quixotic idea of colonizing the negroes in a territory by themselves, just now revived by V. P. Calhoun and approved by Senator Hamnton, is absurd. Tho' negro is the natural laborer for the South, and while be needs a supervisor, is yet superior to tbe socialistic foreign labor that the North employs. That tbe negro will be eventually elevated to the level of the Caucasian is believed by many educators, but in every age we have ssen that the brains nt tbe Caucasian are a practical necessity for the progression of a govern ment. We, as a nation, have alreadygiven the negro equal civil rights with the white man. Already mfllions bave been expended in tbo frecdman's cause, and many millions more must be before we see any shining results. It would be unrea sonable to expect tbe offspring of slaves or heathens to develop in a short time all tbe thrift of a moro favored humanity. If the wealth of the nation will educate them beyond the superstition and immorality of their pres ent Hie, make them citizens worthy tbe high place tbe law has already given them, Ciiris- Have you &wm9 LA tianlty, patriotism and humanity demand that it shall be done.
