The second biennial convention ot the General Federation of Women's olnbe is BOW in session in the City ot Brotherly Love, and is attended by delegates from all the stated in the union and from many foreign countries. Ooxey was granted a bearing Wednesday before the house labur committee and npoke in favor of resolution which looks to the appointment of a joint committee to investigate the cause of the present industrial depression and it possible to propose A remedy. Tomorrow the new torpedo boat Ericsson will be launched at Dnbnqne. This is the first vessel of the kind ever built in our state and the eliding of this torpedo boat into the Mississippi from Iowa soil, is a notable event and one which is creditable to the whole state. The boat will meet with en ovation all its way down the Mississippi river. Senator Mills, ot Texas, ia far from being pleased with the new tariff bill. He mys that before these amendments were . offered to the bill be was between the devil and the deep sea, the MoKioley law being the devil, and these amendments bring a change over the situation, placing him nearer the devil with less sea room. Bat be said emphatically that be would vote for the bill if it contained only a 5 cent redaction. Ooxey and Brown were arrested tor trespassing upon the grass on the should take a drive over our oity and through the surrounding country and they will be convinced that a great deal of this talk about suspension ot improvements owing to hard times is all moonshine. Tariff* Legislation. Tbe senate finance committee tins reported the amended Wilson bill to the senate. The bill as amended is a compromise of the worst kind and all of tbe compromises but six provide for an increase ot duty. Jones, of Arkansas, in reporting the new amendments said "we did the beet we could in harmonizing many conflicting interests. It was an exceedingly difficult task. OQ tbe ons side was the necessity ot bringing in a bill and on tbe other was the necessity of afterwards passing it by a bare majority. We have no leeway whatever. I believe we have anoeeded. Local interests have been considered, and in my opinion the bill will pass and become a law." There is some feeling in other Democratic quarters against the new concessions, and Etill some against the bill, because it atill contains the income tax, but BICYCLIST ARTHUR A. ZIMMERMAN. Zimmerman, the great American wheelman, is now in France racing for cash. I,ast year he won over 100 races In this country as an amateur, and was generally considered the swiftest racing man in the world. It is said CIO.OOO was the bait that caused him to become a professional and race for money the full extend of this cannot accurately government grounds at Washington, and tried before a jury which returned a verdict ot guilty.

Mr. Mills and Mr. Coke are indignant because of tbe sweeping changes from ad valorem back to specno duties. They consider this an outrageous snrender to tbe manufacturers. But they will vote for tbe bill. Mr. Hill and Mr. Murphy remain noncommittal. Mr. Murphy's support of the measure is hoped for on tbe score of tbe protection accorded the Troy manufacturers, but Mr. Hill's fight against the income tax ie eo uncompromising that bis name as a supporter ot the bill appears as vet on nobody's list. He ia still keeping his own counsel, and precisely what his intentions are and when and bow be will manifest them, nobody knows, Popular expectation ia that he will move to have the biil recommitted, with instructions to the finance committee to strike out the income tax. Mr. Smith praises tbe revision of the aobedulee, and pratioularly of those of interest to New Jersey, but he still evadse the direct question as to whether or not be shall support the bill. His reply to this inquiry is, "I think the income tax clause most unwise." Mr. Irby ia a little mysterious. He has not said and will not say where he etands. But, despite ell this, tbe revenue reform leaders believe that the bill will pase practically as now reported. Mary Washington. Yesterday wae a notable day at Fredericksburg, Va., aa tbe event which characterized it waa one wbieh should be a memorable one throughout the nation. A stately monument to tbe memory of Mary, the mother ot Washington, waa unveiled, and a number of eminent men took part in tbe ceremonies. Tbe president, tbe vice president, the cabinet, the justices ot tbe supreme court, senators and representatives, and known from 'all parts of tbe country present. Addressee were delivered < b» the governor ot Virginia, by President Cleveland, by Lawrence Washington, a grand-nephew ot Washington, and there wae a funeral oration by Senator John W. Daniel. In tbe evening there wae a banquet and "oolocial ball." Tbe payment ot these honors WM somewhat too long deferred (or tbe (all play ot patriotic pride, but then will be compensation in the inoreaaed dignity ot the memorial, (or enob an event must have greater significance now than it could have fifty or sixty yean ago. Tbe inscription on tbe monument la simple, yet one of the noblest to Americans that could be carved on stone :"Mary the Mother of Washington." The influence of this noble woman no doubt had a great affect upon her eon in shaping his lite and pnrpoat to me* tbe requirements that wan made upon bin by bis countrymen (or a leader ot bigb principles and inexorable will, lor she WM a woman of tbe moat rigid exactitude oibabitand manner, ot bi|b purpose and indomitable will, ot strong temper and perhajw pointed tongue, shrewd, intelligent, capable, and nomeiiil of Huobp was unveiled, but it ia a mennment thnt will testify through centuries to the honor ot ber life and maternity and be a sign to ever-deepening patriotism. et «•*» iwDort tbe able condition of affaire.

The qualities of ber nature thai my bave seemed etern to austerity did not prevent tbe people appreciating and M- teeming her exceptional virtues of womanhood, and at ber death personal grief and tbe {national expression ot sorrow testified to a oonaolouaneas ot loat that tew woman bave inspired whose position "Old Sleuth." "Old Sleuth" is Harlan Page Halsey. He lives in Brooklyn and until recently was a member of the board of education. He is worth nearly $1,000,000, and of that sum 1400,000 was earned with his pen. It is not likely that there is another living writer of any sort who has earned more and few who have earned anything like as much. "Old Sleuth's" fame is quite equal to Us earnings. To be sure, there are thousands and tens of thousands of persons who have never read any of his stories, and he is not reckoned "one of us" by the literate of America, but the name "Old Sleuth" is known as a synonym for a clever detective wherever the English language is spoken by high and low, rich and poor, learned and ignorant. There is probably no other character in literature or the drama, not even excepting Mr. Pecksniff or Uriah Heep, Falstaff or Bottom, Beckjr Sharp or Don Joan, mention of which will bring to mind more quickly the precise type of humanity embodied in its personality. Twenty years ago Mr. Halsey was a "struggling journalist." Some one asked him why he did not contribute to the cheap story papers and tbe dime.novel publishing houses. Halsey thought oh the suggestion for a day or two and then adopted it. Since then he has written over 160 long stories, besides any number of short sketches, bis total output in the score and more of years he has been writing being more than 175,000 closely written pages of manuscript. Now he proposes to try his band at a higher grade of literature. ' He is dissatisfied with the work he has done and wants to play to the orchestra and dress circle of readers instead of to the gallery. Perhaps he may succeed. Tbe reader of his new books need not know that they were written by the same band that penned the "Old Sleuth" stories, but all tbe same it may be that that band, so long used to the dashing, slashing phrases of the dime novel, wiU be found incompetent to trace tbe soberer words that are needed in real literature. The costumes and tbe surroundings of bis hero may not be those of "Old Sleuth," but the voice and the gestures may be his so unmistakably that the higher public to which the writer now proposes to appeal will have none of him. In a recent interview Mr. Halsey expressed great solicitude as to the public's view of the moral status and influence of bis stories. He says they are replete with moral lessons. Doubtless they are. He also says that many of the books that are considered immortal are also unmoral. Again be ia right. Mr. HaUey makes tbe mistake that so many besides him have made—that goodness and greatness are inseparable; that education and refinement are always incentives to purer thoughts and better lives; that the work of genius is always elevating. Because of that mistake many have fallen; many have followed the leadership of superior mentality into by and forbidden paths leading to intellectual and moral ruin. Our advice to Mr. Halsey, especially if bis writings inculcate good moral let- eons, is to continue to write for tbe reader* who have been cheered by his writ- big and nave supported him for so many year* same methods as his grandfather did will not get satisfactory results; neither will the manufacturer nor the merchant. There is very little land in New England that cannot be tilled with a resultant fair profit, provided it be put to the best use. But it does not pay to grpw that which there is no demand for, nor .that which can be raised 60 per cent cheaper elsewhere. H. R. H. the Duke of Larry Godkin, by the grace of a long suffering public editor of the New York Evening Post, says in The Forum concerning the attitude of educated men toward universal suffrage, "A* a general rale, I think they either mistrust or regret it, bat accept it as the inevitable." Nonsense! No one who has the qualities of a genuine American has such sentiments. Go to, Larry 1 Go to Great Britain, where you come from. This republic was founded on faith in the people, and the real danger is from those who fear and mistrust universal suffrage. Culture lt» Public School*. It is some yearstiow since the first serious attempt was made to introduce physical culture into the public schools, but beyond the practicing of the most per- futK'tory sort of "calisthem'o exercises" heiv und there the results of the move- tni-r.t have been of no special conse- qt /,ce outside of Chicago,St. Louis and M-J -ankee. This is not because any considerable man ber of people have opposed the project. It is now generally recognized, as it \vaa not 40 years ago, that, strong, henlihy, well developed bodies are pretty to t-upport strong, healthy, well developed brains, but it has not, st orned to be the uli'air in most towns of r.ny particular person or persons to bring about the change, and so it has not been brought about. It seems likely now, however, that a new departure in this direction will be taken in the schools of Brooklyn. In fact, the proposition has already been acted upon in one'branch of the oity government, and unless its promoters carry it so far as to excite organized and considerable hostility the result will undoubtedly be good and may lead to a general extension of the idea. As everybody knows, physical culture in the schools is a German notion. The youngsters of Teutonic families are trained physically as well as mentally, and the youngest of the schoolboys and schoolgirls are taught to perform the work of the turnverein. When Mayor Schieren took his seat as chief executive in Brooklyn, it was observed that a large proportion of the members of the common council were also German-Americans, and steps were taken at once to push the introduction of real gymnastics in the schools. The school board has yet to be convinced of the wisdom of the plan, but the council committee on education will call attention thereto, and hopes are entertained that as good work may soon be accomplished in that direction in Brooklyn as has been for years in the western cities named. France and England have already followed Germany's lead in this matter, and both were led to do this by the superior physical condition of the German soldiers in the Franco-German war.

Joseph Jefferson has just closed a sea- ion in New York with the representation of Rip Van Winkle, a part be first essayed in 1859,85 years ago, and repeated thousands and thousands of times Bines. If any one in America deserves to be rescued by heroic means from slavery, "humdrum and monotony," Joseph Jefferson is surely a case for relief. But he goes ahead, voluntarily embracing tbe monotonous role without a cry (or help or even a growl against fate. The complaints heard on all sides against the "demd horrid grind" of certain occupations are most pathetic. The (arm boys go to the factory, the mechanics' sons to tbe army and to the warehouse, the merchants' sons to college and tit professions, and the sons of doctors, lawyers and clergymen rush into journalism or art or politics in order to escape the humdrum and monotony of callings familiar to them. They must have variety, so they aay, never thinking that successful work in any field means doing tbe same thing over and over and over, sad unless there be thought and enthusiasm in it it grows horribly monotonous. Joseph Jefferson's work has paid well, of course. He baa made a fortune out of "Rip Van Winkle" alone, and be could have well begged off and asked the public out of sympathy and regard (or a veteran to patronise something else (or variety's sake. The spirit ot untold thousands in America is unlitt that of Jefferson, The country boys, the faatory boys, the store boys and the boys born to the gown rush into fields promising variety and excitement without a dollar ot reserve (or emergencies. Often they jump from the frying pan into tbe fire- that is, from tbebumdrnmandmonotony of work to the humdrum Md monotony ot penury, * misery from which (her* it no escape, (or it U, after all, the work that galls them and not the nature ot it.

Work ie monotonous, bat it pnrcuaee* life and meat, recreation and plenty. Idlenew in .equally monotonous, cease- lewJyBo, and its reward* are want and decay. Tuere i» uo middle ground, Woman Suffrage. The claims of the pro and anti woman suffragists can be stated in a few words. Those in favor of it assert that many women pay taxes; that all are interested in good government, and that it is unjust for women of intelligence to be deprived of a vote while ignorant men have a full voice in the government. They hold that their influence will have a purifying effect on politics and say they cannot see why any restrictions on suffrage should not apply equally to both sexes. On tbe other hand, it is but just to add that many women of education are opposed to the extension of suffrage to women. They claim that her interests are sufficiently protected by representation as at present constituted, and that her presence at the polls would have no influence (or good. They assert thai suffrage cannot 1 be demanded as a right, but it is a privilege granted by the state aa expediency may direct. In fact, the greatest bar to woman suffrage, so far as it has been made manifest, are women themselves. The question of woman suffrage has been agitated for 100 years, more or less, and the recent flurry of agitation may die down in a few months. It was discussed in France 100 years ago, and about that time New Jersey imposed certain restrictions on voters, but placed them equally on both sexes. The act waa repealed in a few years, however. The first woman's rights convention held in this country was at Seneca Falls, N. Y., in 1848. In 1850 the first national woman's rights convention was held In Worcester, Mais. Since then the subject has been agitated constantly, with varying force, and large strides in advance have been made, Some 25 years ago a Republican state convention of Massachusetts .admitted Mary A. Livermore and Lucy Stone as delegates, and tbe national conventions of that party In 1878 and 1876 resolved that the "honest demands" of tbis "class of cltisens (or additional rights should be treated with respectful consideration" —• rather amusing bit of diplomatic verbiage.
