PORTEK the celebrated newspaper man and'writer on economic subjects, after an absence of some length from the editorial chair, is about to resume his old vocation. Mr. Porter, who was formerly managing editor of the New York Frees, has recently been traveling in Europe as the American correspondent of lead., ing American dalies. He is about to become the managing editor of a newspaper at Cleveland, Ohio. Him Borne Away In Hand- cannon the Tr»ln Bound for* In* Bluff. - '."• Special Correspondence. NEW YORK April 4.1895. It's pretty hard, when you are only 15" years of age, to stand on the '• platform of a great station and see the train going oat carrying on It .»'. m»ri whoie name you bear, whom you dearly, but who can't w,ave bye" to you, because hU -hand* ; held together by strong iron duffs,-stood beside a woman like that, the; other day. Pretty, young, and..know* log more of crime and " wickedness than jour girl of . ,19 could ever Imagine. But this was Peggy's story. I met her first when they were having an entertainment on the other side, with coffee, cake and sandwiches for refreshments. I was belping.deal out the coffee, and the demands for it were quick and short. .Suddenly I saw Ghar'ey waving hia crutch at me, and so, leaving the coffee service in the charge of a young man who very hospitably threatened to knock '/smithereens out ii 1 ftocy boy what gits out o' lino," I went lo see why I was wanted. Charley whispered that, way In the back of the hall, there was a girl who was crying,.and who hadn't come up to get anything to eat. This is always a surprise on the other side, for the DK1M.RTMENT 01" THE INTERIOR sseraa to need constantattoatloo in the. Depart 10:22 ft m 4:45 p m 7:00 am COMING DOWN! YESTERDAY'S Dun's Weekly Kevlew of Trade thus sums up the business situation: "Returns showing the condition of retail trade in March throughout the country and the distribution of goods for final consumption, in comparison with the same month In 1894 and 1893, give gratifying evidence that In most trades and districts marked Improvement over 1804 Is realized. Everywhere also, the occurrence of Easter In March last year but in April this year, is found to accouni for much difference in the volume of retail trade. It is neverthe^ loss larper than last year, but on the whole smaller than In 1S93. The main difference in comparison with 1893 is found ia the general decline of prices, which makes trade in value smaller, evon whore it Is clearly as large or larger in, quantity. "Accounts from tbo chief. centers of wholesale, trade are also -encouraging this week. There is cot only hopeful spirit but real pain in business though not equally distributed geographically ] or as to branches of trade." \ • - •/ ^i .' *tf i:N s "- \,\ —-,-'• *o*-'-*.-''• K } •' • I \ ./' way of filling. I was soon beside the girl, and found that she was pretty, with tout strangely refined beauty that one sees often In an Irish girl. Her clothes wore poor, but she was clean. Her black hair waa smooth as possible, but out of the big blue eyes came the great tear drops in. quick succession. After a little questioning I found out that she was crying because somebody had sung an Irish song that reminded her of home, and not only of home, but of the people o.ver there who loved her, and believed she was as sweet and good as when the left them. The next day I went to see her. Her home here was represented by a small room in a tenement house, but it was home, for on the bed lay the most beautiful blue, eyed haby that ever oooed and laughed as if the world was going to ba good to it and all was sunshine for it. I looked at Peggy's hand—there wan no wedding ring on it. But I wuited. for I had no more right to speak to her than I should have to upbraid a woman who lives in a palace and who is just as human as poor Poppy. As the days went by, I got her some sewing and gradually the story of Peggy .and the baby was told to me. She bad met her "man" at a dance given by the club to which he balonged — "The Sneakers," whose motto was, properly enough "No matter what, happens, sneak a good time." Their idea of a good time wouldn't ba yours or mine. That night It consisted in fierce dac.cicg-, much drinking and a general scrimmage for a wind-up. Tommy Calligau was th'e president, and from the minute he saw Peggy he .began to make love to her. She don't know how it all happened. SHE KNEW SHE LOVED Hill VERY MUCH, and she knew that one night, when the ! ;'Saoakera" gave another 'datce.she took her first drink of whiskey, and ' when be was elected president he pot drunk for the first time in his life, and was taken to the police station for .fighting. He drifted away from bis mother, and the next bad thing on his life-book was hia treatment - of PegKy. .Yea he wasn't bad all through. He,was only vain and foolish, and thought,that to be a man It was nee. eggiry to curse and get drunk and to have a poor opinion of women. '.I took him in to look at our.pipes. AJ far aa I knew they were in good order, but being a -plumber who under- sto|d big business, be quickly die- iCOviwed a leak. While he wai busy It, I came out . THE ,BABY IN MY AKJIS, and, at will all babies .do when they see 1 * man, It itretohed out Its .liny arms.and oooed lis deelre to be taken by him. I handed It over, and, while he pas. a bit awkward, (till an honest smile came over hia face, and he aeked its name. . "Tommy," said I. Again he smiled, squeezed it a bit tighter, and said, in /a half shamed, half, proud way, "That's my name, too, Miss." - . . . Then I asked: "Who do you think it looks like?" And he answered: '-I don't know, ma'am.". 1 said: "Ob, it Is like its father." And he said: "Who is he ma'ain?" Very quietly, but very decidedly, I answered: "You are,- Mr, Calllgan." And then I told him the story. I : tpld him of Peggy's months of sorrow, Highest of all in Leavening Power.—Latest U. S. Goyt Report.

Addreu "A" toll IT is with nations as with Once a man becomes known-'as a coward he la open to the contempt, perhaps Insult, of those who before they discovered his cowardice, treated him with respect, if not fear. So with nations, when one allows an insult' without showing a disposition to resent It by forcible means, other nations will no longer • respect tho rights of this nation that has once shown the white feather. - ; The utterly un-American policy of "the' Cleveland administration with Secretary Gresham at the head of,.foreign affairs has caused other nations to defy us. Great Britain encouraged by tho knowledge that the Cleveland ;id., ministration has shown in a number of instances, but weak resistance to encroachments- on American rights by ' other nations, now thinks Us time has come to defy the famous Monroe doctrine" which is a ihorn that'has long pierced the side of European nations. In answer 'to the request made of Great Britain by Our government at the -instigation of congress, Groat Britain has sent the following reply to Ambassador Bayard: "Tbe'eubject matter is one between Great Britain and Venezuela, so that the good offices of the United States are not regarded as essential to a settlement, as it is not understood that the United^States has assumed a protectorate over Venezuela, or has ether interest than that of a friendly power." •'••-'• "• •• j-then she couldn't remember until the : woman with whom 'she boarded said some thing about knock-out drops. For a little while she kept her situa. 'fion, and then the day came when she was discharged and called all sorts of dreadful names. Tommy kept promising to mako"hor an honest woman. The day was set again and again, but every tiirie he spbke about it, If there happened to be one of the "Sneakers" around, be would be told he was a fool, and he was weak enough and vain enovgh to want' to have a reputation in his club for toughness' and for be. Ing "a all-around man, see?"' ' ' Fortuna'tely for ' poor ' Peggy, she' heard of the loving 'kindness of the best woman in the world—Sister Irene She went 1.0 her, told her trouble, was taken in and cared for.for Sister Irene is the living embodiment of the good Samaritan, The little 'baby was born there, and, after two months, Peggy came down town again, bringing- with her, God 'bless it, that blossom of a baby. And because of it. and because of all thai Sister Irene had told her, she moant to try and live >an honest life. -Afte^'a good bit of 1 trouble, I I found out. Tommy's address. I wrote a note and aeked him to come and see •me, and'for that afternoon only, I bor ' rowed the baby: • Tommy - Calllgan la 22 yeara old, Is strong and healthy, knows bis trade, that of a plumber, and can always -make a good living if he will work. He was a steady, well- behaved boy, living with hit mother and helping to support her: until he became, acquainted with one of the' "Sneakers" and w'ai asked to join the' olub. He thought this was a great thing; thai U made a man of him,, and of her hours of pain, of her determination to make her boy. a good man and of her hard, hard, work to earn the bread and butter. «Xhen I asked him If he wouldn't put a ring on her finger and make her proud of her child and his. Tommy Calllgan cried, just as men of his stamp always do, but he promised, as far as he could, lo right poor Peggy. And so, a few days after In the be'autlful chapel of Sister Irene's, ho made her bis wife AnX they both, kaelt before that lovely altar, given by a loving mother and draped with the bridal veil of a happy wife. Well, they took two rooms, and fb'r a while Tommy worked at hie trade. Peggy made a comfortable home for him, and they were happy together. But soon hia old, wicked companions hunted him up, and instead of staying at home In the evening and 1 reading a newspaper to Peggy be started la to go to the "Sneakers Club"where he gambled and drank Qne night Peggy went after him. He had been drinking bard, and when she begged him to come home with her, he struck her. Poor Peggy crept back to'her baby as best she could, and found that the pain was not quite so bad when she had it in her arms, and that its smile excused Tommy's brutality. Things wont from bad to worse, I'EGGY ALONE WAS THK BREAD- EAKNEK. Sometimes she didn't eeg Tommy for a week, and then, one day, when he was home he took a bundle of sewing that belonged to her empioyer and pawned ilj'which means in plain English, that he stole It, and stole it, not to help his wife, not to help his child, but that he might have a dollar to go, lo the "Sneakers'" picnic. After this Pepgy came tn-me. What do you tblnk she had done? She had pawned her wedding ring to get that bundle of clothes, that her child's father mightn't be branded aa a thief. After much thought we moved Peggy uptown, and for the space of ono week Tommy behaved himself. Then he disappeared, and for three weeks nothing was heard of him. One day, a dirty, bad-looking boy came to see me. This was his story, which he prefaced by a bob of hia head, without removing bis hat. . "You'se a fren' o' Tommy Calligan, aln'tjou? Will, I'm a Junior Sneaker, an he asked me to git thla yere note to you, an to tell how be was a-watin' fur a answer. ' T'ell wid wlmmin', says, me frens and 'me, but jess de same, 1 aln : t de sort -wot kicks a feller when he'a in trouble. Yero's yer letter, see?" Whan he ' finished, the fox terrier was making friends with with him and I took, the note and began to read it. . It was on^a piece-of dirty brown paper, written witb a blue pencil, and these'were lie contents: • ' "Dare Miss, I'm in trouble, the Sneakers was took up fur stealin'.Fore Gswi!l never took nuthln', but I were drunk-' to deadness an*- BO de cops- hauled me in'an 1 1 am goln 1 to be sent up to' Sing Sing. Please Miss,'see Peggy an' tel belaud bring her to see me. "Hoping this finds you well, I am you're fren till death .1 - ' • "ToMirr CALLIG-AS." . The' bearer of this remarkable epiatle surprised my dog by pulling Its tall, and; then growing conversational, he said to me, "Doyou'se like purps?" I said I did.* ' ' • ' With a scornful curl of hia lip he remarked. "Den why don't youee hare from you.". I remarked Incidentally that I liked to have my beat friends near me. and be said, "Oh, youse link dat's funny, see? But youse get a bull purp and ye can make money ft,breedin' If ye will ( ,give me,tree plunks— wotV plunks? Well, tree dollars if yer can't speak -English. I'll buy you a bull purp wot'* . got a lower lip that yer can hang yer jewelry on, see?" Although he gobbled up a piece, of cake, and made a loud noise swallowing a cap of chocolate, the Junior Speaker had a very low opiniOD of me, and departed on a sldeway trot, after he had given the dog- a kick when he thought I wasn't looking. Naturally Peggy and I went down to seejTommy. There he was, In a dirty, filthy place, where the yells oi drunkards and the curses of the wicked made one shudder. Of course, nothing could be done. He was found with the thieves, he was known to be A PROMINENT SNEAKER, and his fellow sneakers thought it was a great joke when they swore to a lie, and said that he helped them In their theft. - Now you know who it was that went on the train to Sing Sing. And what will six months of prison life do for him? Will he come out a belter man? Who can say? At the worst he has only been' a weak one; influenced by bad mer, whose one idea Is that that man is a fool who permits himself to be gentle, or Iqving.or even polite We are going to give Tommy a chance. When becomes out ho will never get back to New York. Peggy and the. baby and this .. prodigal will start for the far West, and he will have an .opportunity. An opportunity to be an honest man, a steady man, and as his record isn't l(nown. he will not be handicapped by it. But oh, the moral of his story! Don't you .know whatit is? As the train went out, there seemed blazoned on it in great big fiery letters— "Evil communications corrupt good manners." CLUBS THAT DEMORALIZE -MEN. It is these miserable clubs, gotten up in the beginning for social purposes, that make thieves and murderers, and until they have been cleared off the face of the "earth, until the police of New York amount to something more than mere idlers and money-makers, they will remain training schools for vice. They teach a man first of all, to be lough, and he is half way down tbo ladder of vice when he is that. They teach him that it is manly to treat a woman, cot after the fashion of brutes, for. they are considerate of their females, but after the fashion of wicked men. They teach them that all the virtues are silly and childish, and that It is only 'brave to drink,' and to curse and fight. That la what these clubs, with their picnics and their dances and their meetings, are to the 'young working-man. Put them down to they cannot rise again, and then there will be hope for the women and the children on the other side, and a future worth thinking about for the men. True? Every word of it. So true that again and again I see a picture of the^ 1 Sneakers' " club room, and then of Tommy on his way to Sing Sing. The end is certain. Who Of you "is going to put out his band, and help his younger and more ignorant brother to do that which is right? 'Help him for your own sake, because, but for the grace of God, that might be you; help him Tor his sake,' because the happi- -ness of women and' children depend upon him. Help him for God'i sake. as you hope to have marcy fihown to you. And then, because I like to think that you and I are friends, help downy, the form somewhat reseiablinjr that noticed in those of the castor-bean plant. The celebrated-rice paper, the product of this queer tree, is formed of thin, slices of -.thu pith,* which is taken, from the body of the tree in beautiful, cylinders several inches ia length. The Chinese workmen apply the blade- of a sharp, straight knife to these cylinders and, turning 1 them round cither by- rude machinery or by hand, dexterously pare the pith from circumferenco- to center. This operation makes a roll of extra-duality paper, the scroll being- of equal thickness throughout. After a. cylinder has thus been pared it is unrolled and weights are placed upon it until the surface is rendered unifonnly- .smooth throughout its entire length. It is altogether probable that if rice- paper making 1 becomes an industry in. the United States these primitive- modes will be clone awav with. CliooKlnc the National Capital. "It is not generally known," suys the Philadelphia Record, "but it is a fact, of history, nevertheless, that Bristol township, lying on the east side of Gcr- mo-utown, had :i very narrow escape from being selected as the site of tho capital of the United States. It was a- very small matter lh:it turned the- choice toward Maryland and Virpfinia.. So positive were so:no members of congress that the capital w:is to be located near Oormantown thai they purchased real estate there, not. of course, as a. matter of speculation, but simply to be near at hr.xid when the removal from Philadelphia to Kristol took place. When the vote of the eonuaissiouers was taken there was a tie, four being- for Bristol and four for the District of' Columbia. Washing-ton cast the deciding- vote, and Bristol township was left out in the cold." Ilnrd to not Hid Of. John G.

"Stop a minute," said the fllcrk of tlie court. "1 am afraid there has been a little mistake- here. The indictments seemed to have been mixed up. With, respect to the prisoner at tho bar the ffraud jury has thrown out the bill." "The prisoner is discharged," said the judge, after a pause caused by his astonishment.
