San Francisco ie being advocated by tbe extreme West for the Republican convention, but It la probable that Chicago will again S I capture tho prize. .'•;,„,. Tiii'! recent elections shows thaf-the people have permanently placed their, fortunes ID the hands of the Republican party.

THERE in an intereuiing contest between a steam railway and a trolley line ftt Philadelphia. In order to hold its passenger traffic 10 Germantown, six miles from the city, a steam railway oompany has reduced its rates 40 per cent, making the cost of the trip 7 cents. On the trolley line which is slower, the faro Is 5 cents. The steam railway will run fifteen trains daily. _!_ SENATOR GOK.MAN has lost his iron control of politics in Maryland. He will go to Europe this summer for bis health, and was anxious to have tbe Democratic State 'convention held early. The committee, however, at its meeting this week refused to con., slder his wishes and named the last day of July as the time for tbe con. vention. It Is generally thought that Gorman will for the first time in many years be unable to namo the candidates of his party in Maryland. I>r tho Forum for April la a striking paper by Henry J. Fletcher on the growth of cities at the expense of tho smaller towns, in which he shows from tho last census that of 0,291 townships in Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa acd Michigan 8,288 eilber stood still or lost population between 1880 and 1890. This is all tho more striking since each of those States pained from 10 to 26 per cent, in population. The same decadence of the towns is more or lees marked in otbor sections of the country and, in faot, is a phenomenon of the closinpyears of the contury 'even more observable in Europe than with us. Tho great cities are becoming greater while many of the smaller ones are at a standstill or losing in population. There arc exceptions however, in the\caee of cities lifeeLo. gansport where there is a quiet, but steady and healthful growth. THE lament of many wealthy men, who, while they attain social position by their riches, yet cannot fall to be embarrassed by their lack of education, was strongly put by Chauncey M. Dopew a few days ago at the commencement of the University of Chicago In speaklog of the advantages of education, he said: ; ••It has been my lot in the peculiar position which I have occupied .for over a quarter of a century, of counsel and advisor ior a great corporation and its creators and of tho many sue-' cessful men in business who have 'surrounded them, to know bow men who trnd been denied in their youth the opportunities for education feel when they are possessed of fortunes and the world, seems at their ieet. Then they painfully recognize their limitations: then they know their weakness; then they understand that there are things which money cannot buy, and that there are gratifications and triumphs which no fortune can secure. The one lament ot all those men has been, •Oh, U I had been educated! I would •aorifice all that I have to attain the opportunities of the college; to be able to sustain not only conversation »nd discussion with the educated men with whom I come In contact, but compe- tant also to enjoy what I see ie * delight to them beyond anything which I know. 1 " Peculiar Thinsrs to Be Seen Modern New Orleans. in Th. Old 81»T. M«rk«t Still • Point of In. Ureit-1 H»lf Boor In • French • Oatcen —A CUT Impo«r- Uh«rt by Gambling. [Sp«oi»l New Orleans (L».) Letter,! . The visitor to this "Cybele of the western waters, rising in pride' -with her shining crescent of ships," will find 1 much of Interest in a people who have eyes only for the past and live for the pleasures of to-day. About the only change noticeable Is that of decay, especially in the old French quarter, and in the furrowed brows and tottering steps of its inhabitants who now, as in their prosperity, maintain that "time is man's slave." Freeing of the slaves was tho first step toward the decadence of the old time aristocracy of New Orleans, both French and American. The rotunda of the old St. Louis exchange was the principal slave mart IN KOTUJTDA OF OLD BT. ; LOUIS EXCHANGE BEFORE T1IT3 TYAK. ol tho citv, where negroes were placed upon a block and sold as chattels by another human being with a white skin. This spot is still an object of interest to visitors, who are told that the husband or fn.tb.ev generally acted as muster of ceremonies and assisted his wile or children upon tho block to bo sold—separated forever, I have conversed with some of the old, infirm ne- groes who recall those days, which now seem almost incredible for belief. One seemed to take a pride-in the fact -that he was one of the "best niggers in the city," and was "knocked down to Marso for S1.800 in gold, sab!" These relics of a bygone and feudal ago arts fast disap- tne dally drawings. About two-thirds of the tickets in the monthly drawings were sold out of this state, but the daily ; drawings wer« local, arid the octopus took from the people this vast amount of monev,daily, for a quarter of a century; also including 1 about one-third of .the re- ,. ceipts of tickets sold in the monthly j drawings. A little figuring- will show the amount of money these people have poured into the coffers of a .few men. It is no -wonder that fiucb, poverty has existed among' the masses, that the majority do not pay their taxes, that the public school fund' is always short, and that the streets are unpaved. The lottery has been virtually dead, for a few years, but really, it is only scotched, and, like the fabled snake, when you cut its body in twain, it unites and comes to life. Tickets are sold at the cigar stands and in the barbershops in the "American district," and in the '-canteens" and restaurants, or "pensions," in the French quarter. Of course, a man must first be "identified," as it is now unlawful. While in one of the "pensions" of the French quarter, I overheard a shabby-genteel Creole, perhaps a descendant of one of the emigre*, speak of his luck at the recent drawing-. I believed this to be a "feeler." But J drew him into conversation, and he offered to procure for me not only a ticket in the concern that was recently driven from this state, but one also in any of the- numerous forcig-n lotteries. So it \vill be seen that the vice still flourishes, notwithstanding 1 that the twining tentacles of the octopus have held them in poverty for a quarter of a century. This descending descendant of a proud family, himself too proud to work, makes a small commission upon each ticket he sells, and thus manages to make a cheap living, at the daily risk of the jail. There are many of this class in the city—wrecks of a better life, and of better days. It was the vice of gambling that made them what they arc, and now they live by tempting- and aiding others to follow their downward pace. Creoles are "born gamblers;" that is, gambling is with them au inr herent mania, and has existed in some form among them from the foundation of the city, and their speculation in John Law's "bubble" -boom bonds, to the days of tho lottery when tickets were in nearly every show window, cried out upon the streets by peddlers, and sold at the market stands with the vegetables and the fish. "There is not so much of it, now," said a fish vender at the old French market, "and the poor people have a little more to eat. Instead of going homo with a, light basket and a lottery ticket, they now put the price of that ticket in the basket, and thoy live much better. It is a good thing for all of us that the lottery was driven away," concluded the fish wan, with a sigh, pearing-, and with them their peculiar > ^" d 7ntlV~thinkiiig-of this money lie had idioms, songs uml olden time dances, | which, it seems, cannot bo transmitted to the new generation of colored peo:_ lost through this almost universal "cf jinning" of the market basket. But, "There aro no song's like the old songs," and only those who have lived in what is called "ele good old days" can sins those olden-time plantation sonffs with that true feeling of sadness or o£ glee that inspired those melodies. The words wove mainly improvised, and as neither they nor the music wove written they must soou bccoiiTo echoes of the past, or rather cense to lire with the passing <*euora,tion. A few of these olclon-timcs negroes are still found in the little- shanties or rookeries on the crooked and narrow cross streets ot the French quarter. An old n egress or a bent-up old man is -seen sunning himself at the entrance^ of the clingy, damp coiirt, with head tied up in the usual red bandana, patting a foot as ho hums an olden-time melody, tl reaming' of tho past and sadly "waiting for de end—" death. Around tho corner is a "canteen," or saloon, frequented by sailors, Italian mafias and the worst elements of French and Spaniards, kept by an octoroon. 2S T ig-ht- ly high carnival is held, in the way of dancing, drinking, gambling, and occasionally fighting. Tho cautious tourist visits this place accompanied by _a policeman. Then the attraction is gone. It is somewhat singular that such a place should exist on a street named for St. Peter, and within two blocks of tho great cathedral' with a "palace (of justice) and a prison on either hand," Impoverished by tho sale of their slaves, and tho consequences of the £2, IX FBOXT late civil war, the next frrcatest. blow to this ''Cybele of the western waters" was the lottery, which kept the people impoverished for a quarter of a century. Creoles are, naturally, gamblers. Speculation in cotton and bonds was "One block from the "Old Absinthe Corner," and to which the chevalier d'industrie is a stranger, is the old cathedral, thronged every Sunday by visitors. Here is still maintained the ancient French custom of the church griardian wearing a red velvet coat, three-cornered hat ornamented with a black plume, a silver medal on his breast; a sword, and a mace in his right hand, which he thumps on the floor occasionally to command silence, or to too slow for them. They must : hare a ; awaken the sleepers when the collector lottery, and the country witnessed the jg passing around. J. M.

There are also numerous -'poker rooms," in both sections of the city, where yovrag clerks and men of mature age, holding fiduciary positions, meet and play.

The exploit of the brave engineer who piloted his train through the tornado of llame in the Minnesota forest fires and rescued swarms of terror- stricken refugees has made hiro famous; but the self-sacrifice of a poor parish priest in Hinekley has hardly boen mentioned, although there was in it much of the finest quality of heroism, Bays the Youth's Companion. From the moment when the destruction of the town was menaced by the rapidly advancing wave of flame, ho ceased to think of himself and devoted all his energies of mind and body to the protection and rescue of others. He went from house to house, warning the inmates of their peril, and bcs- ging them to take refuge in sand pits where there was water. While panic- stricken men were harnessing horses and frantically seeking to escape into the burning woods, he was calm and collected, reassuring everyone whom he met, yet pointing out the only chance of safety. lie led one group after another to the sandpits when they were beside themselves from fear and excitement. When one place of refuge was overcrowded he found .-mother, and begged the stragglers to follow him. The woods were flaming on cvery sidc, and the refugees standing in the water felt in their faces tho scorching breath of the storm of five. The good priest had words of encouragement; for all. -Fie held children in his arms; he supported fainting women when they were falling from fright and fatigue; he put the stoutest-hearted man to shame by his coolness, cheerfulness and energy. With his hat he poured water on the heads of women and children in that fiery furnace, lie took the coat from his back and tore it in half- One fragment he dipped in water and bandaged the forehead of a woman with a child clinging to her. The other half he wound around the heads of two helpless children whose faces were scorched with the heat of the burning forest. Bareheaded and in shirt-sleeves he stood among the dying and ministered to them while he had strength to stand, eyes to see and a voice to utter words of comfort and hope. His was the spirit of self-sacrifice and of ministry to the needy, and whether shown in Catholic-or in Protestant it is worthy of high commendation. The flight of the train through the , burning forest was the more stirring story in print, but what could have been nobler or more heroic-than this devoted man's work among his Hock! j There were deeds of valor and chivalry before the walls of Zutphcn in Flanders, but one" act of self-sacrifice alone is rcmerabered. Sir Philip Sidney, wounded, dying and burning with thirst, put away from his own lips the bottle of water'which had been brought to him in his agony and gave it to a common soldier covered with gore who had glanced at him wistfully. No Fun liolnff » Klnpr- Speaking of the boy king of Spain, a correspondent of the Congi-egational- ist says: "There are many points in the court etiquette of Spain that make it hard-to be a boy king and harder still to be the boy king's loving mother. As he was born a king little Alfonso had to .have a household of his own, with his own suite of rooms. Tie cannot even dine at the same table with his mother, nor can she perform for him those tender little offices that mothers delight in and children find so comforting." The little king has to go through with tedious state receptions, which weary him sadly and sometimes try his childish patience beyond endurance. Once at a grand church function the baby sat upon his nurse's knee, all dressed in white, as patient as a baby could he. A bishop had been holding forth for a good hour, and everybody was doubtless waiting for him to close. At last the little royal listener could bear it no longer, for he is a high- strung little man. and with a glance of indignant, despair in the 'direction of the talker, he clutched at his party white hat and cast it upon the floor. "When his nobles were paying their compliments to him -on his second birthdav their king entertained himself by jumping up and down the steps of his throne." GfOTg* "WnXtiinpton 1 ! Coftt.
