Piiee per Annnm, per Month. • . . . . SO OO .... 50 SUNDAY MORNING. MARCH S. Ifr I THE Canadian election which occurred on Thursday last, has almost revolutionized Canada. The Liberal party gains were in the more thickly populated localities where popular sentiments first overcome conservative politics.- Tho legitimate growth of 'that sentiment will change Canadas po licy at no distant day. The charge by. the Tory party of treason and that Liberal success- meant annexation to to the United States did. not produce •"the; scare intended, • and 'as a result men-; i and- papers hitherto -silant are boldly and earnestly favoring annexation since the election. There is no doubt but that tho annexation party in Canada is stronger than ever before and that the questionTwill be an issue at no distant contest at the polls. In this connection it must-be remembered that ^n election in., .Canada Jdpes not accurately revep.1 public sentiment. A peculiar feature of the Canadian election law permits electors to vote in all ;the precincts in which they own realty so that one man may 'cast a dozen votes legally if he has sufficient property and. is active enough. THE New York Sun narrates the result of one feature'of the McKinley bill which has hitherto escaped the 'iotice of the public. , Every American can see the force and wisdom of it at once. The Sun says: "There ^are now beginning to "appear in the cutlery stores many knives and other articles on each of which, is stamped the woid "Germany."' .The McKinley "bill requires this. In the- .custom-house and. at sea on the .way :back to -^Germany are hundreds .of .thousands of * dollars' worth of'such goods which are t stamped "Germany." A large •^dealer in cuilery, in discussing this ^effect of the bill, said yesterday that -the market had been flooded with ^kuives and cutlery of all sorts stamped "Providence 'Cutlery Company" or "New Bedford Cutlery Company," but "nevertheless'of .German make, and of "isuch inferior;material that men who bought them vowed they would never again buy an American knife or tool. Our American cutting tools are the iest in the world, and hereafter they ll not gaffer from unfair competition. If the tariff is not a tax why will the price of • sugar be reduced when the tariff taxis taken off of it?—[Pharos. £,' The tariff is a tax upon those things which we do not produce, as for in- itaoce coffee and sugar. On that liccount Republican Congresses have lemoved the tariff. The Mills bill placed a high duty on sugar. ' 'A tariff or revenue" must be and is atax tariff kroughout. Protection collects tolls roto other nation, tariff for revenue axes the citizens of our own nation. it' tariff designed for revenue only and Srhich would not be great enough to protect an industry upon the product \l which the tariff was laid, would at )nce be< ome a tax with the destruction tithe-industry. "Witness the,pearl buV «n industry killed a few years ago by a "'"luetlon and again' employing hun- ds of men oy reason .of the Mcanley bill. DGovjEEjr.OE.Ko,vEY la his veto.of the Gerrymander bill uses this strong argument: "It is not important whether other Legislatures, other Governors-and other States have forgotten to obey their oaths to support the Constitution. We are not governed by the law of the vendetta, whore one crime demands the perpetration of another. If others have done wrong and forgotten their oaths and the Constitution, why should we debase ourselves to their level, whether they were Republicans or Democrats?" Tariff" Pictures. It Js surprising how foolish Canadians and Australians and even Englishmen will buy our "Sigh priced" agricultural implements when they can get "cheap" ones at home. Our exports o£ agricultural Implements for live years, 1865 to 1SSD, averaged $2 697,243. In 1890 they were $8 859,18-J. Thelactis, our agricultural Implements are the best and cheapest In the world. 5S —New York Press, Fifty Democratic members of the Indiana legislature are in favor of Cleveland as a candidate in 1892. Senator Voorhees says he cannot be because he is opposed to free silver. The Indiana legislature just elected Voorhees because of his rigid adherence to Democratic principles. On the silver question therefore, as on all others, the Democrats of Indiana art both for and against. A Kare Treat. North Judson has seen parts of Uncle Tom's Cabin but never the whole of it, and you should all turn out and see the old ..and reliable Manson & Morgan Co. who play the entire six acts. They will be at Burch's hall on Monday March 4,—North Judson News. Keep it before the people that the Democratic party in Indiana is a minority party, and has carried the State by a majority only once in twenty years. The gerrymander is a rascally device to establish minority rule.—Indianapolis Journal. The Indiana legislature adjourns to-morrow sine die and also sine gloria. IN HEAVY BONDS. Chauncey M, Depew Gives Himself Up to the Coroner, Held i.i Bail of 525,000 to Await the Action of the Grand Jury on the Charge Made Against Him. . OTHKK OFFICIALS IN THE SAME BOAT. NEW YORK. March. 7. — President Chauncey M. Depew, of the New York Central, "President Clark, of the New York, New Haven & Hartford, and Director Parke, of the same road, surrendered themselves to the coroner Friday afternoon. They were all held in. 825,000 bail. Director Parke was the first to arrive at the coroner's office. He was accompanied by his son, who qualified as his bondsman in the sum of 825,000. While the coroner was accepting- bail for Mr. Parke, President Clark came in aad surrendered himself. Frederick P. Tilford, of Park & Tilford g-ave the required bail for Mr. Clark. A detective from the central office called on Depew about 3 o'clock and requested him to come 'down-town to the coroner's office. He showed no warrant Mr. Depew said be would go down-town in the course of an hour or so. At half-past 4 he appeared at the coroner's office and gave himself up. The arraignment before the coroner was entirely informal. He gave bail in 825,000. Cornelius Vanderbilt went on his bond. Arrangements were made whereby Directors Hunt and Miller, who are both aged men, should appear next Monday. President Clark assured the coroner that all the officials of the road would appear in person and give bonds. Operators McManus and .Breen liave been discharged, .but Engineer Fowler was held under $10,000 bail to await the action of the grand jury. At 10 o'clock a. m. Coroner Levy arrived at his office, and a few minutss later Wilson G. Hunt, one of the directors, arrived and offered bail for his appearance. Alexander Van Ness, of SO West Fifty-seventh street, became Ms bondsman in the sum. of 525,000. William Rockefeller appeared before the coroner at 1:45 p. m. .His brother, John. B., was with him. There were no formalities. Mr. Eockefeller gave bail in S'35,000, with his brother as bondsman. NEW HAVEX, Conn., March 7.—The officials of the New York, New Haven &-Hartford railroad will not attempt to avail themselves of any possible advantages that might be gained because of the unpleasant differences between Gov. Hill and Morgan G.. Bulkley, and will go to New York and answer for their alleged criminal acts. Vice President Heed says he will be found in New York when wanted. General Passenger Agent Hempstead says the same thing. He told the correspondent, however, that he was at a loss to know why a warrant was issued for his arrest since he had nothing whatever to do with, the mechanical •work of the railroad. E. H. Trowbridge, one of the directors, refused to say •what ..his intentions were in the premises. A queer and laughable fact about the warrants is that one has been issued for the arrest of Charles Rockwell, formerly the general freight agent of the railroad, but who has been dead six months. J "BAB" (M MRS. STANLEY. A Few Pretty Compliment* for tlie Explorer'* Wife. NKW YORK. March 2. Special Correspondence. The American woman is disap proved of by Mrs. Stanley. She thinks her manner is bad, her voice loud, and her dressing very objectionable. She has spent all her time looking for pretty women and can't find them. Evidently she is not as good an explorer as her husband. The insolence displayed by this Englishwoman is almost magnificent. Wherever she has gone she has been well treated; great courtesies have been shown her; and in almost all instances they have emanated from women, and this is her "Thank you." Will the American worm ever turn? Will it ever discover that it is casting pearls before the swine when it goes in. for extending kindly greetings to people who, having violent attacks of swollen heads, think that they are doing favors in accepting them? MRS. STANLEY'S TAWDRY cows. Mrs. Astor, whom nobody ever believed to be anything but a gentlewoman, with the finest feelings and the greatest consideration for rich and poor alike was asked to invite Mrs. Stanley to her housed She did so; and among the crowd of well-dressed American women, the English one who had so unkindly criticised them, wore a crimson velvet gown so tawdry looking, that one could only associate it with those affected by the Queen of Denmark when Hamlet is played at the Bowery. It is said that as a nation we are too sensitive. Well, I don't know that we are, except where our women are concerned; and we do object to having disagreeable comments made on them, especially by the stranger within our gates, to whom they have offered the bread and salt of hospitality, and who have not known, or else forgotten, that once you have broken the bread and tasted the salt, you respect the courtesy shown you, and only say words of kindness. THE ENGLISH MAID WHO WAITS. We have nothing in this country that answers to tha type represented by Mrs. Stanley—the maid who waits. She is very common in England, where husbands are by no means easy to get, and where women wait on far beyond thirty, waiting for a man to take pity on them, and grow to have an expectant look OQ their faces, until you would not be surprised to hear them cry, "Any man, Lord!" That is why nothing good is found in the American woman. She can always marry; and when she don't she isn't an expectant old maid, with the stamp of prunes and prisms set about her mouth and on her forehead in ill- tempered lines, but she is a woman who doesn't care to ma-ry, and chooses to work out her life alone. For my own part, I say, "God bless her!" for she takes care of many another woman, looks after many another woman's children, and does good in many a household. After the criticism of Mrs. Stanley, however, it is to be hoped that the American woman will close her doors to so- called lions that are, after all, cattish in their actions. It's a pity, in the interest of society at large, that the wife of the explorer does not go to darkest Africa and learn there of the sacvedness of hospitality. A NEW SCHOOL FOR WOMEN. t Talking about women, there is something going to be done for them about which a great deal ought to be said. There are schools that teach woman everything except how to be useful; and this is something Mr. George W. Childs is going to remedy. In the great Drexel Institute "for Women, which is now being built, they will be taught how to cook, how to sew, how to make bonnets, how to keep accounts, how to write shorthand, how to be'good type-writers, designers, and to be perfect in every one of the arts that are within reach of a woman's hands. A certificate of the perfection in any one branch will be enough to gain them a position in any shop or manufactory; and the bonnet has to be as well made, the steak as well cooked as the design is perfect or the account properly posted. The womau who graduates as a cook will understand her business, and the one who receives her diploma as a dressmaker will know exactly .where pockets should be put. how buttons should be placed, and just how closely- a collar should fit to look well, and yet be comfortable. Isn't this the right sort of school? And to show you how entirely Mr. Childs intends to carry out this idea, he has put himself in communication with all the good artisan, schools in the world, and intends to get the best of everything from them, to find ,out their' mistakes and as far as possible to avoid them. Only the other day when a secretary was needed, and Mr. Childs was'' asked to"- recommend a young man, he said, <;No, let it be a •ft woman; this is for women, and wherever women can honestly earn any of the money from it they shall hold the positions." Now, that's what I call a good speech; and the school promises to be that best of all things—a help to .women who want to make life better, truer, and more absolutely honest, for ; the poor worker is as dishonest as the thief. NEW YOKK FULL OF DOGS. The dogs have come to town. They are aristocrats from the tips of their tails to the ends of their cold noses. The big ones scorn the little ones, and the little ones nearly bark their outside coverings off in an effort to prove that they are not as insignificant as they look. Unless the beggars, none of them are ia rags, and their coats are glossy enough to ba considered as satin dinner gowns. That anybody who has a person il attachment for » dog should put him in a show is a mystery to me. The big dogs are cooped up in places, not big enough for them, and they look downcast and unhappy; while the little ones are so nervous that they spend all their time barking and when the show is over need a month's doctoring to get them in good condition again. However, without thing about the poor dogs, the fashionable crowd look and approve, and are interested in the puppies, whether they are on four legs or two. • 'BAB'S" WISE FOX TERRIER. Did I put my dog in? Would you put in a fox terrier with the whitest of coats, who knows perfectly what you are talking about under any circumstances, because early in his life he chewed up and digested an English dictionary? No, indeed, not when he can sit in a box and point with his paw- to the prettiest woman in the place. Everybody who saw him said it happened to be Mrs. Van Rensselear Cruger; but that's nonsense, he knew just who he was choosing, and with the knowledge that came with the dictionary and the knowledge that came from extensive traveling, he choose a woman who added to her good looks wit and wisdom. That's a very clever dog. By the by, he's not for sale; and- this is not told to boom him, but only to show how advantageous it is for men, women and dogs to absorb the English language straight early in life. THE COQUETTISH APKON. The sewing classes have made more positive a well known fact, and that is the charm possessed by the apron for a man. He knows he likes it, and yet he can't tell just why. He says very vaguely. "Well, y n u know, it's white, and has such cunning pockets, and the strings tie so prettily about the waist; and then, don't you know, it's so essentially womanly. The fellow who looks at it always thinks to himself that girl knows something about making a home, and he can imagine her with an apron on walking around in the morning and seeing that her household is in order." The apron is the very essence of coquetry. It shows off the girlish lines of a figure well; and if to its fancy skirt is added a tiny full Dib pinned carefully and smoothly on the bodice, then the wearer is certain that her admirers will grow rapturous. Silk? Certainly not! Silk aprons, unless they are white ones, are considered extremely bad form. The proper one to wear being a fins white nainsook with a decoration of hand work in the shape of hem-stitching. So the gin who wishes to gain the heart of a young man succeeds best when she is at the sewing circle, armed with a needle, and prepared to put the heart in the pocket of her apron. THE BRUNETTE AND TnE BLONDE. The brunette is going to have her innings. My reason for stating this is that most of 1 the new bonnets are decorated with white ribbon and have white ribbon strings. These are absulutely impossible to any blonde except the natural one, with a skin like peaches and cream. The woman who has had dark hair and has been idiot enough to bleach it, usually has to make up to suit her hair, or else fcer skin is of a leaden hue. Now, white ribbons will bring out every particle of powder and rouge on her face, and make a shocking spectacle of the fool and her folly. The brunette will wear the white ribbons, and triumph in this way over the blonde, who will not dare to assume them. In the way of fashion her blondeship has triumphed .for a.long time, and it is only just that the brun- ette'should at least have same rights. The bleached blonde will undoubtedly try the white ties—for any woman, who J has been silly enough to believe that nobody knows that the Lord did not make her hair a color out of harmony with her skin, her lashes and her brows, is idiot enough to try anything —for she believes that everybody in i the world is blind, I regard the glistening white ribbon as a judgment come upon the.lady with the bleached locks. I'm a great believer, in judgments—aren't you? I think if one waits long enough, and watches the people who- have done wrong, one Highest of all in Leavening Power.—¥. S. Gov't Report, Aug. 17, 1889. ABSOLUTELY PURE sees them suffer for it, though if one has a mean enemy it's just as well to put the stone in one's pocket, ready for use, and then when you throw it throw so that it strikes home. SO.ME ENEMIES WE AJ.L 1'KEKEI:. There are some enemies to be preferred to some friends. I prefer the open enemy to the friend who. considers it a jest to discuss my weaknesses before people who are strangers tome. I prefer the open enemy to the friend who, because I believe in friendship, uses me as long as it is convenient, and then laughs to other people about how easily I am fooled. I prefer the open enemy to the friend who comes to me when I'm in my sorrow, hears of my woes, and recounts them to a lot of idle listners. , I prefer the open enemy to the friend who exploits ill temper, ugly words, and dissatisfaction upon me, counting that friendship gives these privileges. I prefer the open enemy to the friend who makes friendship a worry and a trouble rather than a rest and a refreshment. I prefer the open enemy always. Chen there is honest warfare, not innuendoes, not backbiting, not lying.or slandering, but clear, honest war, where you strike out from the shoulder, either mentally or physicially slraignt. Like you, a good friend or a good enemy may be found in BAB. I AffUirs of the Treasury Department. ] WASHINGTON, March 7.—Secretary Foster will leave Washington' Snnday for a few weeks' visit to Ms home at Fostoria, 0., for the purpose of arranging Ms private affairs for a permanent residence in .Washington^, It is said on high authority- that the.appo^nt- ment of an assistant'secretary of the treasury will not be made -until after his return, and that there .is no prospect of an immediate change in the office of United States treasurer. Drowned WbiJo Attempting to Land, CAIRO, 111., March 7,—Two unknown men crossed the Ohio river iri.a small boat accompanied by Joseph. Henry, who runs a skiff line to .tie Kentucky shore. In trying to land the boat was overturned in the strong current and j was drawn under the steamer Minnetonka, moored at that ^point. .. Henry was saved by a watchman of the Minnetonka and one of the other men saved himself, but the third was drowned. ; •:-. AN OLD-TIME OFFICIAL. Ho Has Filled Many Portions to Everybody's Satisfaction. James R. Young-, executive clerk of the United States senate, was for many years one of the most popular .men in Washington. He is a quiet, dignified, self-contained, honorable gentleman, a thoroughbred newspaper man, and absolutely reliable. He .is, however, BOW a bank president in Philadelphia, and seldom finds time to return to the scenes with which he was so long familiar, and of which he was such a prominent part. For awhile during the administration of President Arthur Mr. Young was chief clerk of the department of justice. Hje accepted that position solely to accommodate his friend, Attorney-General Brewste^ 1 . During his incumbency of that position he made many friends for the attorney-general and for the administration. As executive clerk of the senate, Mr. Young has been for many years the custodian of the secrets of the executive sessions of the American house of lords. He has been present at every secret session, and has recorded ;he proceedings. It will be half a century or more before these proceedings will be published. The senate is exceedingly jealous of those occurrences and sayings winch are kept from the world, in those executive sessions. Very frequently the senators say things, and say them in a manner which would be considered undignified, in open senate. None but a most thoroughly trustworthy man can fill such a place. Awarded HeaTy Damages. ST. Louis, March. 7. — In. the Bowie county district court, at New Boston, Tex., Friday, William Eictor, a colored bootblack, -was • on a jury- trial awarded $10,000 damages against the Texas & Pacific Railway Company. Plaintiff was thrown from a train, and, falling under the wheels, had both, legs cutoff. Presidential Preferences. IsriiANAi'OLis, Ind., March 7.—As an indication, of sentiment as to presidential candidates, a poll of the. Indiana legislature was taken Friday. It showed preferences as follows: .Democrats—Cleveland, 50; Gray, 26; Hill, 7; Palmer, i; scattering, 10. Republicans —Harrison, 17; Elaine, 20; scattering-, S. He Knew It Was Insolvent. ROCHESTER, N, Y., March 7.—Leonard Kuhn, formerly cashier of Faulkner's bank, was sentenced by Judge Nash at Geneseo to one year in the Monroe county penitentiary. He received deposits knowing the bank to be insolvent. After'Hearst's Seat. • •' : SAN FRANCISCO, March 7.—The .election of a successor to the late Senator Hearst takes place next Tuesday.
