ROBEHT POKIER, the well known wrher on economic lubjects, now In Europe at correspondent for tho Chicago Inter Ocean, has made close Inquiries Into the government telegraph system which hae existed in England since 1870. Ai that time there were three principal companies and the tariff varied according to distance, with a minimum of one shilling for twenty words within 100 mile.-; and a message of that length between London and Val. entinn, in Ireland, cost aa much as eix shillings. Now it is one penny. Tbe average coat of' a private telegram WRS in 18C9 two sbillinsa and twopence. At present the average la only seven and three-quarter pence. Under the old companies the highest number of messages sent in one year was no more than 6,500,000. It leaped in the flrot year of governmental ad- mlolstralioc—1S70 71—to 9,860,177, and has steadily grown, until now it bas exceeded 70,000,000 in one year. The number of ollices taken over by tho government was under 3,000; now there are over 0 000. Tho old com. paoies possessed 00.000 miles of wire; ihe poatottico now has over 200,COO miles, of which 12,000 miles are laid underground. Press messages sent by the old companies amounted to a very small total in a year, because of the high tariff; but now they have reached over 5,500,000 per annum, representing 6,000000.000 words telegraphed. Every little town that has a postofflce also has a telegraph station. The great central oQlce fit London receives and distributes half of all the messages -in tho country. The cable room alone sends upwards of 16,000 messages per day and is in direct communication with every capital of Europe;,^.American and oven Australia. ID tbo main office over 100,000 messages per. .daj aro transmitted and by means-of mechanical devices like the Wheatstono Transmitter between 5i-0 and 600 words aro eent per minute. TQE "Financial Outlook" is thus treated by Clapp's Circular of last week: Within the past twenty-throe months more defalcations by state and national olUuiuU woro reported than for thirty preceding years. "To reform" seems to be. "ruin." To "turu the rascals out," appears to imply "turn In tho rascals " The utter absence of Lincoln methods in Washington is the recret of our best citizens. Public opinion creates free governments and upholds them (or good or 111." Execution of the public will must follow the public judgment. Oat of 14 588 fall- ui as in the United States and Canada in 1894 on'y 108 were from speculation. Their liabilities were only $-1,420,623. 12,963 had less than $5,000 capital and 10,858 bad very moderate credit rating with mercantile agencies. Between December 81, 1894, and February IS, 1895, tbo wltbdraw- a's of gold from the United Stales Treasury were $80,786.002. The banks lost gold in the same time. ThpTreae- ury deficit for 1894 was $69803260. The receipts from customs In 1894 were $71,536,486 less than in 1893 and $15,392 6921063 than the Internal revenue receipt?. Apparently tho President has given a. few persons "a put" or "call" on an unknown quantity of government bonds good to Oct. 1, 1S95. No similar privilege was ever granted "a money center" not even by Presidents Buchanan Or Johnson. The "Jug Handle" Congress expires March-1. 1?95. We trust future elf c- tion* will favor a principle rather than i designing men. Highest of aH in Leavening Power.— Latest U. S. Gov't Report Baking Powder GRAND LODGE K. OF H.

It was the Katharine of tbe chivalry of the Grind Lodge of Indiana Knights' of Honor, and the bustling members of Wabash Lodge No. 1831, and Logan Lod^e No, 1,256, who are on the reception committee, were making a noble effort to see that all were royally cared for. Tbat they succeeded was evidenced finally by the expressions ot pleasure, from the visiting Knights last night, with the treatment ac. corded them.

FLORA. NEW YORK. MAKING A GENTLEMAN OF HIM. That: Win All Right for tho ISoy, But lilt Mother VTui Mad. The stout woman in furs and diamond earring's—of course diamond earrings ore the height of bad form just now- plumped into one of tho crosswise seats oil the Sixth avenue elevated train'one day anil pushed a small hoy into the seat opposite her and next to me. A shopgirl with a bundle had expected to take that seat, but the indulgent mother was too swift for her, says a writer in the New York Press. Perhaps men who have children of their own don't meddle with those belonging to other people, but I put my arm" around the small boy's waist and lifted him oft tho seat and said: "Xow, take off your lint and ofCor your scat to that young lady." The small boy promptly ran between his mother's knees, the young pirl crimsoned and hesitated, nnd the stout woman flushed purple. The experiment seemed to be a failure, but the girl was clearly entitled to the seat, and so 1 looked at her and smiled encouraging-Iy, and she sat down. Then the stout woman abused me. to my great mortification and the amusement of the whole crowd. "And, let mo tell you, sir,'" she finished, "don't you ever meddle with other people's children again." "Madam," said I, firmly, "if mothers don't train their sons to grow up as gentlemen some one else ought to. How do you expect that boy to respect his mother's sex when his mother sets him the example of despising- woman's claims to courtesy?" Kmploycr anil Companion. One of the most important secrets of a hunting expedition is this:- "Sever allow yourselves any luxuries in a 'tight place' which, your men have no share in." The English sportsman, whose advice we have quoted, tells how he was rewarded in the Caucasus for treating his men as comrades and sharing camp comforts with them, lie says: One chilly night among the mountains I awoke at three o'clock to find mvself warm nnd snug under two extra native blankets. The owners of the blankets were squatting on their hams, almost in the fire, and talking to pass the long, cold hours until dawn. Having rated them for their folly and | made them take back their blankets j and turn in, I rolled over and slept j again. Wnen I next woke it was seven : o'clock, and the men were still crouch- j ing over the embers, helping to cook breakfast, their blankets having- been replaced upon my .shoulders. I had paid these men off the day before this happened and they left me the next morning with a hearty "God be with you," unconscious that they bad done anything more than the proper thing: toward their emplover and companion. VERTICAL WRITING. apbert Are Mainly Responsible for Its Introduction n*re. If the vertical handwriting which .is being taught in our public schools prevails, and becomes the ordinary handwriting, the people who enjoy its advantages will have in large measure tho telegraphers to thank for it. ^ They have been the pioneers of vertical writr ing. For the last twenty years almost every telegraph operator in the country has written a. round, vertical hand, plainer than any other sort of handwriting known, with round, fat loops for the letters which drop below the line, and simple capitals. This telegrapher's handwriting has much in common with the English "civil service handwriting," which may have preceded It. but the civil; service, hand is less often vorticr.1 find h:u', certain points of dilYcrenoe. Men's handwriting tends in a general way to conform to tho fashion of Itom-un print, prevalent at any time. :'-«d :ss the nwst ordinary print letKT nowadays is of a round or Scottish fiioc. it is not strange on tho whole Unit the tendency in handwriting is toward :i round letter. Women's chirograyhy is more- capricious in its fashion, though it Ii;is inclined pretty steadily now I "'- 11 " M-'vi-ral years toward angular liritk-isin. • POETICAL LAW.

An eccentric Jrihhiiuin named BrOOUC, wholivi'd in Queens county and owned nn cstii.1,0 valued at six hundred thousand dollars. inside Mr. Towns one of four heirs, and his share will be ono hundred :md Jifty thousand dollars, says an old copy of the Troy Times. About tc:; years ::go nn old man entered his oilice and requested an interview. lie slated that he had .long been interested in reading of litigations, and he had seen the name of Mr. Towns in the newspapers as a lawyer who did not take the law too seriously, so JJroone. came to Mr. Towns, and said he had decided to give him the first case that ho was interested in, on condition that ho would sum nn the case in rhyme. The t-:i:w \v:is that of Mrs. Bridget Rowan against John Bcdull for damages for being bitten by a dog and drenched wii.li water from a hose, ' comply with Uroone's request _ _ Towns summed up the case as desired.

These atrocities, the Albany Law Journal says, resulted in a verdict of fire hundred and seventy-five dollars for his client. His patron was SO pleased that he gave him another case, : in which he recovered ninety-five hundred and eighty-three dollars--against the Long Island Railroad company oa injuries to a woman's knee. This case he summed up in rhyme, remarking among other tilings deserving death: Tae fairest tiling on earth to sec Xi lovely woman's beauteous knec.
