A >*RW Yorker with a strange fancy for towels hiss mncle their collection a fad, and he has gathered from all parts of the world an unparalleled assortment of thorn. Honjamin U. Davenport, a lawyer, better known as a publisher of several ..books, is the possessor of this unique collection, nnd he proudly displays his store of towels of all ua- tions/nu'robermg thirteen hundred and twelve. Mr. Davenport, says the Philadelphia Record, has boon engaged for twenty years in the amassing of this bizarre exhibit, which includes towels of cotton, •wool, linen and silk. lie has been ably assisted by many of his friends._ To the acquaintance departing for distant lands Davenport has been wont to say: "Send m'e a towel from Madagascar," or, "While you are in Patagonia, pick me up one of the native towels." ' By far the greater part of the collection was picked up in the hotels of the United States by Mr. Davenport personally. They vary in size and texture. A thin, sleazy cotton rag, through which one might read a newspaper, bears the startling legend, indelibly . stamped across its limp surf ace: "Stolen from the Occidental hotel, Leadville, Col." It is evident that the miners had formed the habit of carrying off tho tow els to use as shirt fronts. | In contrast to this economical rag there is a roller towel, thirty feet in length, secured in an Illinois wash room. It was what the porter who sold it to him called "the "house towel." One set of seven towels, of varying.- thickness and texture, including a genuine Turkish article that looks like forty cents worth of tripe, recalls the luxury of a local bathhouse. A square section of jute bagging, such as is used to cover cotton bales, was considered quite the thing in a hostelry on tho, banks of the Yaxoo river. A real curiosity is a stiff and inflexible affair ' found in the composing room of a Pennsylvania weekly newspaper. It was ''tho office towel." There are towels of softest damask, with daintily embroidered initials that call up romantic visions, and there is a section of mummy cloth; brought home from Cairo, which once might have been used to dry the moisture [rom tho fair skin of Pharaoh's daughter, or possibly have been tucked under tbe chin of the infant Moses. There arc towels that are as small as napkins and towels that would answer for bed spreads. Some are as soft to the touch as the fluffy bosom of cider swan, and others could be used to grato horseradish upon. There are dainty French towels and heavy, square German towels; soft Italian towels that g-ive forth a faint odor of garlic; cold, heavily-starched towels that come from England: a Scotch towel that is made of tweed; an Irish towel of unbleached linen that will take off the cuticle as if it was made of emery paper; towels from the South Sea islands that, are not towels, but are cocoanut mats; a carefully-dressed chamois skin which came from the Alps; a jean towel from Indiana; a Japanese towel of fibrous paper, and a heavy silk towel once owned by Adelina Patti. Then there are common towels of no particular Individuality that are in the i collection, because they were known to .have becn used by some celebrity or because there is a talc of adventure, romance or sentiment connected with their acquisition. Mr. Davenport's conscience is never troubled when he contemplates his treasures. Very few of OTU were accidentally packed into his baggage. As to the consciences of the porters and chambermaids who assisted in their compilation—that is another story. Each of the towels is duly tagged and numbered, and a catalogue gives DISGRACE. 1'olioy in th Great OF BOYS Xew Process Discovered In. Swltxerlmnd Which Frodn c» Bnantlful R«ult«. Some beautiful effects in the ornamentation of glass are now produced by Gorlitz of Zurich, his method in this kind of work being, it is claimed, a decided improvement in the art. The design is first engraved on a printing plate of rubber, positively—that is,.in the same way as that in which it will be afterward seen, and the plate is coated then with varnish color and pressed upon a glass plate; the latter ia strewed with bronze powder, sheet aluminium, or other suitable material, the portions forming the design remaining empty, and being, therefore, transparent At this stage .the glass plate is placed in a frame having a backing ol: strong paper Woard, on the front face of which is mounted a b rill iant sheet of tinfoil of tin. plate, provided with prominent squares in suitable positions. The design is thus shown by a brilliant reflected light through'the transparent part .of the glass, its other portion, forming a backing stamped in relief. " i,. raised enameled writing The roy.iliht Yiprisiu<iund Consequent bloodshed in Ih-.waii f-.:niishcs another proof of ihc ini'uiiiy of Uio policy which dio (loraocratie ruluiinistrnlion of the United States lias I ur:-ued concerning tin: little island republic. There COD bo no doubt that, tho royalists and their supporters were encouraged to attempt the overthrow of the republic by tho trwvmcnt thoy had received at the hands of 1 'resident Cleveland and Sccrolnry Crc.-s.hain since the failure of the effort to restore the deposed queen to her throne. Uhen congress and the American people condemned the attempt to put the corrupt Lilmokalani back in power it quickly became apparent that the president was determined to have nothing to do with Hawaii unless he could do as he pleased. Instead of giving: protection to American interests in Honolulu after the formation of the republic, the only naval vessel of the United States which had been in the harbor of that eity was withdrawn, affording the prompters of British interests full opportunity to encourage the royalists to revolt. ' As long- apo as last April Admiral Walker wrote to the navy department, conveying 1 the information that American residents in Honolulu had objected to the removal of the cruiser Charleston. He also pointed out the fact that the commander of the British ship in the harbor was secretly encouraging the royalists to revolt. The American vessel was withdrawn.nevertheless. Later, when the royalist commissioners came to Washington to see the president hii prepared a written statement in which he informed them that the action of congress had made it clear that it was the policy of the United Stat.-s not to interfere in the affairs of Hawaii. That amounted to a practical assurance that if tho royalists rebelled they would bo left to fight it out with the forces of the republic. The news from Hawaii shows that President Dole was able to cope- with the rebellion, which' lasted five days, and that peace has been restored. This may be urgod as a good reason why there should have been no interference on the part of the United States. Wo do not say that the United States should have interfered, but we do maintain that the predominating interests in Hawaii are American, and that those interests are entitled to the protection of the United States government. There 'is certainly no reason why they should have been exposed to the dangers of a rebellion, when it was known that such a rebellion was coming. It would not have been necessary for the United States to make a demonstration. The mere presence of an American cruiser in the harbor of Honolulu would have prevented the uprising which has just taken place and saved this government from the disgrace of indirect participation in the affair. But little is known yet concerning the source from which the royalists received their arms and ammunitions, but Mr. Thurston. the Hawaiian minister at Washington, says lie believes they came from British Columbia. That is probably the ca.se, and it will doubtless be found that the supplies were sent to the islands in a British vessel. Great Britain has favored the deposed queen on purely commercial grounds, for it was apparent to British traders that if the republic, with an ex- American for president, could be maintained, the held of the United States upon the business of the islands would be strengthened. The democratic president and secretary of state have taken sides with Great Bri ain and against the United States th jughout the entire controversy. At the beginning of ths Hawaiian affair they disgraced themselves by their action. More recently they have disgraced themselves by inaction. Throughout, the Hawaiian policy of the administration has been a disgrace. —Cleveland Leader. _ £^~The tariff of 1600 was the latest application of protection to American industry. That it was adapted to the conditions of the country was splendidly and unanswerably demonstrated by the unprecedented prosperity that followed. L.iring the two years that succeeded its enactment the republic reached the zen.th of its industrial greatness, wages touched their-bighest point, enforced idleness among workingmen was scarcely known and every branch of business felt renewed life. The principle upon which that measure was devised will constitute the framework of the next republican tariff. The people have tested "McKinleyism" and they have tasted Wilsonism, and the world knows their -verdict. The details of the next protective tariff will take care of themselves.— N. Y. Adier- tiser. .

DELPHI. FLORA. NEW YORK. THE DEMOCRATIC STATUS. g of tho End of tho Nation 1 * This country has wonderful recuperative powers. It is even able to stand two years of democracy without losing- more than about 30 per cent, of its business. The congressional blockheads who imagined that, their free trade theories would introduce . tho millennium, having no eyes to open, fail to sec that the prostration of industries and the prostration of revenues go hand in hand. The imports in the last four months of 1892. before the old duties were disturbed, were $"72,000,000 and in the last four months of ISO-! the imports were 8211,000,000 in value, a decrease of nbout 22J<? per cent. The duties on imports in four months under the new tariff have been S-10,000,000, and in the same months of 1802 were 554,000,000. Tbe treasury is in trouble simply because their wages have becn reduced. Their wages have been reduced because employers had to face-the probability of sharp competition with foreign producers on new terms. It plenses onr democratic friends to assign other reasons by the score .for this tremendous change. But nobody is convinced and nobody deceived. .They do not even cheat themselves. Even while they vociferate in congress that the tariff has made no difference, they personally know bettor. The average democratic member of congress knows as little as it is convenient to know about things generally, but he had poundad into him by angry constituents and their votes last November some definite knowledge of the prostration oC industries in his own district, and of its cause. He would consider himself a traitor to his party if he should utter in the house one DRIFT OF OPINION. ESTThc Hawaiian rebellion is one of the logical consequences of the Cleveland conspiracy against civilization nnd progress in the 1'a-cific islands. — N. y. Tribune. ESTThe hardest hit yet made at th& democratic party comes from Senator Gorman, lie says: "The foremost man of finance iu the democratic party ia John G. Carlisle." — Chicago Inter . Ocean.

' It would be treason to the party, lie thinks, to advocate any restoration of duties. Perfectly well he knows, by this time, that thousands ,of his constituents arc getting less wages than two years ago because of the great change in possibilities of profits for manufacture, but he is not going to confess any such truth. He knows that men who receive 50 per week, but used to get 812, cannot buy as many things of foreign or domestic production as before. If the man were sufficiently unmuzzled to tell the straight truth, he would admit that 23,000,003 nine-dollar earners cannot buy as much as 25,000,000 twelve-dollar earners, by S3,900,OOQ,000 yearly. But he is *oo good a democrat to tell tales out of school, and 60 he robustly insists that all the trouble is due to republican currency and other laws. ' Very well, gentlemen of congress, it is your bed and you have made t. Until March 4 you .will lie in it. J>ut •when the republicans get at business, their first duty will be to help the people to earn more and buy more. That is the first step toward relieving- the treasury, and the first step also toward reviving European confidence in American investments and preventing the •withdrawal of forcijm capital. A democratic president may not like to have a.ropealof the tariff of 1S04 thrust before him, as the necessary first step toward financial and industrial health, but lie need not be surprised if a republican conjrress begins in ejactly that vcr.v.

He Died Honorably. The recent degradation of Capt- Dreyfus, of the French army, as •» traitor, contrasts very significantly •with the way the French soldiers were •wont to honor the memory of Chevalier Latour d : Auvcrgne, who fought in the ranks, refused promotion and died on the battlefield, saying that this was the death he had always wished for. And ever afterwards, at the muster roll of his regiment the sergeant would call his name in the proper place on the roll and the oldest man in the ranks always replied: "Dead on the field of honor."
