A told attempt, was made early thjs mornlDg at to )urn the Btate house. : A quantity of ashes and charred chips .and paper, the remnants of material used were discovered in the front portal of the building this morning, and furnished a decided sensation to the ser geant-at-arms and other state house officers. There is not the slightest question hiit that the fire was incendiary. ! It was started among shavings and other inflammable sub- . stances which had been put Into a box which was placed directly j between the -storm doors. William Johnson, messenger .discovered - i the j charred remains of the box and Other; materials early during the forenoon, and at once notified the Sergeant at arms. ; No motive is ascribed other than robbery and that itself is on the theory that the fire was started in the front portion of the building in order to direct the attention ,of the watchmen long enough to allow the entering and rifling of ' the treasury department. The doors were fcharred but. the actual damage done will be covered, by a few dollars. The watchman failed to notice the blaze and in this way unquestionably, blocked the scheme of the Incendiary.

REPORTOR1AL GENIUS. of 11 amor and I)ahe. of Pie- torinl Strength In Ordinary New., Did V :u ever thitik alxnit. the vast quantity of genius annually wasted ou tha oewswttrs by merely local reporters who are not., ipaid for originality or style, but merely to "write it up?"- Probably, not, but I 'have. and I tell you there is enough of it if saved iu book form to make literary fame for a hundred iuen. And let me tel." you another thing, there are uien of liter ary fame who steal a good deal of it aiic 1.01 it for money ua their own. When a trieud shows me a bit of good R-ork. either in prose or poetry, and tells nie that he just "threw it off" lat liijjbt 1 praise hiiu .openly to his f:jc; while secretly I doubt lii's-wuf J, and if the .composition is extremely tr-xal 1 suspect (that it is due to tbe oil and the toil (( ma-Hf lights and the thought of many day si. But when there w-ouly oue eveuiny between the deed and the printed "story of it theft I know that the writer of the stoiy "threw it off last niyht," aiid 1 give him credit 'accordingly; as, for instance, the account of yesterday's election which 1 Cnd in this morning's paper, and wi.ivh 1 thank the reporter for prewntiug to tue in a well fitting dresa, with flowers of humor and fancy in the btitioniiole and embroidery of rhetoric, where 'such adorn men t ouhl to be. Like a dash of Worcestershire saqce on a tender steak, is the sarcasm, pungent. and refined which excites my appetite. when "1 read that the voters of a certain ward, "objected to' Cooper .because htt wore a silk hat and went into nood society." What further description of that waal is necessary? I Bee its ; alley and tourts and saloons as iu a photograph, ujid I know without looking at the returns what became of Cooper. . j ttothereis equal pictorial strength and saving of words, too, mind you, for which economy, 1 am told, the reporter get no pay, in the description of a winning candidate, who, "proud and victorious, tramp-l down Ashland avenue, with his bi ujd face divided by a triumphant smileJ" There is high art in that, for I know without looking .that the victorious candidate is a saloon keeper, and 1 see' him laughing clear across lus face frojri ear to.ear. "II iace uivuieti oy ;a smile" is . humorous poetrjl worthy of -;Butltr, and I maintai there is no more expressive line in liudi-bra-. "Peaceful as a, tramp in a hay stack j" said of the Twenty-third ward, a picturesque dtiscri.ption that siives a mul titude of words. I cannot imagine anj thing more sleepy, quiet and careless tha a tramp in a Unystack, and the comparison is piietical too. Of a certain candidate notorious for his expansive liberality on election days learn that "alout o'clock he went to his house ou Twentieth street and laid iu a new. stock of campaign arguments in small denominations." No coarse and uglvdead wall statement there, but a dejicute and genteel euphemism which tell it all in a vivid and effective way. It is the brigKt rapier instead of the dull club. The munificence of that candidate is made visible iu the same artisiic style, so delightful to read and so easy to understand, thus: "Then he went to the saloon of Jan Novak And put up for a new frrshet of beer, which soon iiad the neighborhood iu a sloppy condition." ' -j Not kegs of beer,.nor barrels of beer as a commonplace reporter would have had it, but a "freshet" of Ik-it, and the poetical exaggeration is ingeniously corroborated by the further testimony that the neighborhood was made "sloppy'' with beer, and by this evidence the fact of the freshet proved. - 1 have read,' in another" paper, another account of that same election. It contains just as much information as the one I have spoken pf in these comments; but there is no yeast of witty imagination in it to "raise" it and make it light and easy of digestion. It is doll, soggy, inelastic dough, and altogether too much of it.' M. M. Trumbull in Open Court. A liarbnron. Symbol Next time you drop in on your barber to have a suave or your hair cut ask him why he has a pole wit h white and red stripes on it at his door. The chances are that he will tell you it is to let people know there is a barber shop in the vicinity. Ask him why such, a pole represents a barber shop and tell him not to talk politics or the weather to you until he has answered and you will have a quiet time of it. Of course you know, but in case you don't want tc bother telling him just clip this item and induce him to paste it in his hat. In olden times blood letting was believed in and the ancient barber was the man who made a specialty of it as, also, some of them do today. The pole has nothing tc do with hair cutting or shaving; it represents the blood letting end of the profes-siyh. The red stripes indicate the ' flow of blood, the white stripes the linen bandages used after the operation. If you succeed in cornering your barber on this question, ask him not to talk so much until he acquires some information worth imparting. ' Detroit Free Press. The World. Peanut Center.

AN ATTACK ON REftDIHG. Gov. Abbett's Fight Against the - Coal Combine. . THESE AEE LAWS ENOUGH, HE SAYS. Consequently No Extra Session f the Legislator Will Be Called, bat Port Beading's Leas to the Jersey Central Will B. Set A.lde If Possible. Tbihtoh, N. J., May 9. Governor Abbett is determined to prevent the consummation of the Reading deal. He will not call an extra session of the legislature, as was his first intention, because prohibitory legislation is not necessary. There is a law sufficient to break the combine, he says, and it will be invoked at once. Attorney General Stockton has been directed to appeal to the court of chancery to havo declared invalid the lease of the New Jersey Central to the Port Reading Railroad company. If' the court grants such a decree the combine will be broken, as control of the New Jersey Central is necessary to the success of President McLeod's big schemei The Port Reading is owned by magnates of the Philadelphia and Reading and ; the Lackawanna and the Jersey Central were leased to it a few years ago, as it now turns out, for the especial purpose of this deal. The New Jersey Central could not be leased "directly to the Philadelphia and Reading because the leasing of home corjorations to foreign corporations is not permitted by the Jaw of New Jersey. A Corporation on Paper Only. The attorney general to sever the tie between the New Jersey Central and the Port Reading will allege that the latter is a corporation on paper only and- has no existence in fact but only ill name. In support of the allegation he will show that the Port Reading has never made any return to the state board of assessors for the purpose of taxation. The law requires all railroad companies to return valuations annually. The failure of .the Port Reading to comply with the law, accord ing to the authorities hem, proves its insignificance and its insignificance as a corporation will be relied upon for proof to sho that the leasing of it to the New Jersey Central is an evasion and fraud on the law forbidding leasing to foreign corporations of nonresident owners. Attorney General Stockton is getting the papers reaifr and a bitter fight ' will un doubtedly ensue. The Port Reading will go into the fight backed by the owners ot all the roads in the combine. - METHODISTS AND EDUCATION. Miner. Are Mtirmariag. Wt'XKSarrk, Pa, May 9. Murmuring of discontent among th miners of .the Wyoming valley rf"t:.t? the consummation of the Reading deal are iarrea-ung, and an or ganized effort is teing made by" t!;e"m it re sist it. John S. Hadrack, one of the most' prominent labor leaders in the anthracite, region, said last night that the spirit of un-: rest was-universal. among the workiugmen. "They have waited patiently," he said, "for some bona fide action by the state government looking to the enforcement of the constitution against the combine, but have become disgusted at the evident insincerity of those in a position to bring the combine to terms. Now they propose to take the matter into their own hands. The men say that in order to pay the guarantee given by the Reading one df two things must be done. i "The price of coal must be advanced forty cents a ton or the wages of . the miners reduced 7J-f to. 10 per cent. They cannot see how it is possible to advance the price of coal in the market, and they conclude that the only other alternate is left a reduction of their wages to the starvation point. "Jf is the universal opinion that the policy of retrenchment alreadyinaugurated by the Reading will bear heavily ujion the miners, and for the sake of their homes the men are determined that the constitution shall be olteycil or serious trouble will follow."

Omaha, May 9.-rThe, meeting of the Methodists at Exposition hall in the inter est of American university and Christian education was well attended. Bishop Hurst presided. The first speaker was Bishop Newman, of Omaha, who took as his sub ject "The Genesis of the American Uni versity." "The American - University and the Institution, of . the Church" was Dr. Payne's subject and he spoke in a. feeling manner of the necessity of chnrch education. Bishop Fowler spoke on "The University the Defender. of Our Faith," contending that the sneer of the infidel or the gibes of the deist can only be oom hat ted by men educated in all sciences. "The University in Relation to the Mission Field" was Dr. C. C. MeCabe's theme. He contended that education was absolutely necessary to proper work in the missions in order to acquire tongues of the heathen. Dr. Frank M. Bristol took for his text "The Preacher and Higher Education." His chief point was that educated people would not tolerate an uneducated pulpit. "Providential Aspects of the American University' was discussed by J. W. PaRhford, D. D., of the Ohio Wesleyan. He believed the establishment of an American college at the national capital, under control of the Methodists, would add much to the dignity of the church and of iu ministers. "The American University Why the Methodists Stionld Build It" was ably handled by John E. Searles, Jr. A college equal to Yale and Oxford was badly needed by the Methodists, he argued. "The American University, a Water Mark of Our Twenty-first Quadren-nium," was Dr. Moorej subject. He believed the time had come to build a great college, and that by so ordering this conference would leave a mark that would rebound to its eredit in ages to come. TELEGRAPHIC BREVITIES. MRS. J.
