CtrmjL Tha (UaainraURul COUNTY COVERKMEttT. ndro WtlHasns Opinion on the Coanty Ge-rernaaant Act Fore shadowed by Senator, Vreomaa In His Speech an Its Passage. The opinion cf Superior Judge Williams, of El Dorado county on tbe unconstitutionality of the county government act takes substantially the same ground as that taken by Senator Yrooman in ex. plaining his vote against the passage of tbe act at the last session of tha Legislators, By referring to the sssus of the Btcord Union of March 12th last it Is found that when the bill came np for passage In the Senate, Mr. Vrosman said that it was unconstitutional because it conflicted with the opinion of tbe Supreme Court of Illinois in the case of Devine vs.

the Commissioners of Cook county 84th JR. page 593, a decision made under a provision similar to that contained in the Constitution of California. That opinion says: "Its absurdity would be most manifest if the Assembly should designate as many classes as there are counties in the State, and then enact a law limited ia its operation to each class under the mere pretense that it was nevertheless a general law applicable to a particular class. Such a construction would render valueless the salutary provisions of tbe Constitution forbidding local or special laws." He also objected to the bill because it was not made a part of the Code, and did not repeal those sections of the Code relating to county governments. Tbe Act, while it does not create as many classes as there counties in the State, yet makes forty -eight classes for the fifty -one counties, and this, as Judge Williams pointed out, is clearly but a nominal compliance with the provisions of the Constitution.

Eight or nine men and one iroman o- oupied chain in front of the stage need in tbe circus performances, but Whose only utility, under the present manage ment, is to bold the evangelistic- water bucket and tin dipper, from which the parched tongues of the exhorters are fro- quentiy moistened after particularly-fer vent flights of After the meeting had been fairly opened in the usual way, the woman told her experi ence, winding up with the somewhat original exhortation: "Every one of you come and help the good work along. Cast in your mite and with thy mite do whatsoever thy hand findest to do." The next speaker was an old man who rescued, on the He described bis wickedness and the way in which he persecuted his wife who was a good woman witn so much earnestness and in to humorous a style that his fellow-evangelists could not keep from "laughing right out in meetin'," intermingling their laughter with choruses of "Bless God." Another prayed: "Bless those dear ones 1 talked to when I waa this meetin', especially that young man who wouldn't come because be said we were so peculiar. Lord, make us more peculiar!" Here his -next neighbor chimed in: Lord; make him peculiar!" And another shouted: "And me, too!" A slim man told how he been taken with hemorrhages years and his friends thought he would had ago, die. "Butitdoesn sound much like lungs," he shouted, "sometimes weak when the Lord lets me loose."

A long line of horses stand ready harnessed to tako tbe street cars around an up-grade corner iu Boston. The horses are so placed in a line as to be taken each iu its due turn. Just now the writer observed tbat the instant the driver detailed for the purpose was oat of sight around a corner, a horse whose turn would coma next deliberately walked down the line and placed himself as tbe last in the line; the last, thus to be used.

Watching closely he noticed that it was but one horse that did! this. did it so iuvariably, and not until the driver was out of Bight around the corner, as to make it impossible but that it was done to escape work.

A few years ago the centennial of the father in chemistry, in distinction from alchemy, was celebrated with great eclat, but in view of the uses to which it is applied in corrupting the most necessary articles of use, the science which can analyze and syntheize almost everything is of mixed, if not doubtful, benefit. Used conscientiously, the retort and the crtfcible are of very great advantago to mankind, but when employed to show how things can he so compounded as to pass for what they are not, a good becomes an evil, and this perverted use of chemistry has attained alarnring proportions.

CO KWW to I 3 tf 117 95 93 60 86 How tho Oariair Blno Grass Game" stars Pile Vp Their Money, Probably there is no State in the union wnere gamming 01 au Kinds is carried on as openly and as generally it is ia Kentucky, and. in no city has tha mania for gambling such a hold on the public mind as it haa in Louisville. Everybody gambles here. The central part of the city ia one vast faro bank. For three squares on Fifth street and for four squares on Jefferson street nearly every house is filled with keno rooms and faro banks.

The law is a dead letter, for the gamblers are greater than the law. They make the law. This city has now become tbe hone centra of tbe State, and here collect tbe big "sports" of Kentucky. From February until October and November pools are sold in half a dozen places for sums ranging from twenty-fire cents to $4,000 ana $5,000. The vast amount of money that changes hands in a single year is also appaling.

I was talking tbe other day with "Fat Dick" Watts, one of the proprietors of the Turf Exchange, and the figures he gave me of the firm's dealings, including orders by telegraph, French mutuals and poof selling, were for last year between $6,000,000 and $7,000,000. TT a a- Compare this with the dealings of any of the national banks or any of the great mercantile houses and see how few sur pass it. xne amount ot betting going on at-the races each day is simply amaz ing. Un Derby day no less tban $200, 000 changed hands on the grounds alone. and ail this in cssb.

it wasn a very good day for betting either. ihe winnings tbat some of these gamblers make is enough to take one breath away, in one race alone. Mr, Jack China, the owner of Leonatls, won $85,000. Be is the famous friend of Phil Thompson, and was his staunchest supporter in all the troubles that arose from Thompson's unfortunate shooting affair. He is a desperate -better, and one night last summer, the story runs.

in a big poker game with some Blue Grass race men, be won Ux-Uovernor McCrearv was at this time talking of running for Congress against Thompson Chinn heard of it, and, slapping his hand down on the table in front of him, swore roundly that Thompson shculd have every cent of his winnings to beat McCreary. When McCreary heard of the threat he failed to make the race. Chinn is a typical Kentucky gambler handsome, broad-shouldered, liberal- to fault, and knows how to use a pistol. lie once taced a mob of thirty Republi cans at Harrodsburg, who were threat- emOg to kill any enemy of Colonel "BUI" Bradley, the leader of their party in the State, and especially hated by Chinn. He boldly denounced Bradley before the whole crowd.

In a rainuto a dozou pistols were out. Uhinn instantly drew his own, leveled it at the head of the leader and swore that the first man who attempted to shook him would read their leader's death warrant. Some friends backed him np, all of them with their weapons drawn, and a bloody battle was only pre vented by mutual friends settling the dispute. He carries himself jauntily, never picks a quarrel and never shuns one that is forced on him. A brave, reckless, dashing feuow is Jack Chinn.

He owns Leonatus and several other good horses, has a fine farm in the heart of the Blue Grass, and ia willing to bet $10,000 on three aces, Another man here, named Keegin, won $40,000 on Lydia Stanhope, and it scarcely raised a ripple. In the same race a pool was sold for $4,000. This is considered moderate betting. The very children on the streets buy poo) tickets. On one side of Third street you can see men in kid gloves wagering their thousands at the "Turf, and across the way bootblacks and newsboys bet twenty-hve cents on the "Uerby The Judge of our Circuit Court buys pools anjlbo one thinks wrong of it.

He is a big-hearted, honest gentleman, and 11 public sentiment opposed his gambling he would scorn to do it. The Chief of the Fire Department sells pool tickets across the counter, and the leading Councilmau of the city ia an auctioneer during the races. Ihe Governor of the State buys freely, and backs his choice like an old gambler. The very girls bny pool tickets, and divide their pocket- money with their brothers and try to plump a winner. Men make princely fortunes in a few years.

Milt. Young, an obscure grocery-keeper at Henderson, Kentucky, got hold of a good horse, and after two years bought himself a mag nifjent stock farm near Lexington the McGrathiana and is worth anywhere from $200,000 to $300,000, and has a stable full of flyers. His horses always lost at the right time and won at the right time. "Yoa oughtn't to blame the horses," said a turfman to me; "they didn't have anything to do'V'ith it." The license tbat is given other kinds of gambling makes Louisville the paradise tor "calculators of chance," as Bret Harte calls them. All the fines that are imposed are freely remitted by the Faro banks are almost as responsible as national banks, and have quite as much capital backing them.

Winnings and losings are made at a single sitting that would make one's head swim. Waddell, a well-known gambler in the South, won $10,000 in two hours. Major Hughes lost $3,000 on the turn of a card. A half-drunken party went into a Fifth-street bank a few nights ago and closed the bank up for the night, winning everything iu the safe. It Didn't Hit.

Detroit Free There was a chap on tbe boat who lived at Jackson, and he was telling as many anecdotes regarding the negro population. Among others, he had a friend who one day asked of an aged darky: "Well, Colonel, What particular ossification has predominated over the ramifications of late The old man gave a pall at his hat with one hand and scratched his head with the other and answered: "Well, Bah, I reckons dat was him gwine down de road a few minits ago on topof a mewl There was a passenger from Rhode Island who was greatly amused by these anecdotes, and two or three times afterwards I caught him hunting in a dictionary for big words and stringing them to- 6 ether. When we arrived at Natchez was all loaded up. A lot of us went up to see the town, and as we gained tbe crest of the long and dusty hill we met a colored woman on her way down Here was tbe chance the smart Aleck had been waiting for, and he baited her and demanded: "Madam, have yon systemized the disability of the precocious influenza this morning lie was bowing and smiling, and she looked thunderstruck. After a miaute she asked: "What's dat yoa remark i "I percolated tha interrogation as to Whether yon had ambuscated the gigantic verbosity," he continued.

"No, sab, I hasn't," she said, as she removed the basket from her head, "bot Ixe gwine to right away 1" LWith that aha brought him a clip with rJuuid on tha ear. and followed it up with a bant in the back that sprawled him into the dost and left him gasping like a fish.

After several years travel in the European countries he: returned to California, and on the removal of General McCollough to the Eastern States, he attain became a partner of of Mr. Boyd, the firm name being Crane Boyd. In 1875 he again departed for Europe, his taste for travel being unsatisfied, and Judge W. W. i Cope was taken as a partner to fill the vacancy caused by Mr.

Crane's absence. He a year in Germany studying German literature and political science. On bis return from Europe in 1880 he devoted bis attention to literary and political studies, and then resumed the practice of tbe law in 1882.

Pittsburgh Commercial Gazette. "Yes-a bizz-a-ness is-a good-a now, not so gooa-a as a-spring-a, but-a pret-a good-a, said a plaster image manufac turer in classic Tinpot to a Commercial Gazette reporter, Saturday afternoon. His bnsiness is to turn out plaster images ot all Kinds, from a building to a head of Minerva, and from the pure, white plaster of Paris through allthades of im possible bronzes to the pink-hued tint of the mixture pf plaster, marble-dust, acid and what not. There are four of these manufacturers in the city, and they supply the hundred peddlers with their wares. The molds are all of Eastern make, Pittsburgh not having trade enough to justify the founding of a factory.

They are made of zinc, in two or three pieces, according to the work, and are so accurately formed that with care no trace of the joints can be seen in the cast. Making the images is quick and inexpensive- work. The plaster is mixed to the consistency of thick cream, the mold set up and the liquid mass ran in. In some firms air is used to force the plaster well into the mold; in a few flat shapes a plunger is brought into play, as in making pressed glassware, and others are run solid. The profits in proportion are fabulous.

Five cents' worth of plaster will make almost any image in the market, and two cents ia the average expense in this direotion. Molds vary in price, from $1 to $10, according to the work on them, and the number of pieces, but they are practically indestructible. When the market has been glutted with any one shape, the mold is sent back East to be sold in another locality, so that they are not expensive in the long run. The retail prices are hard to get at, as they are whatever the purchaser will give, but they are never less than ton times tha cost of whe article. As there are but two profits the manufacturer's and the peddler's it is easily seeu why so many of Italy's sons go into the It leaves tbe organ and the monkey away out of sight, and gives the peanut-stand a hot race, with the chances about even.

Tha Master ef the Rolls gave judg ment in tno Irish uourt 01 Appeal yes terday, June Z2d, on a curious question as to a married woman's right to make a will disposing of family jewelry. The matter was brought forward on an appeal by the Earl of Charlemont against the decision of the Judge of the Probate Division, holding that the will of the late Countess, disposing of jewely and lace estimated at 7,000 to the Hon. Mr. Spencer, spoke from the date of her death, and passed all the. property she had at the time.

It appeared that at the date ot the will she had no separate estate, and tbe question was, therefore, whether the property she acquired afterward passed under the will. The jewelry in question comprised a bead ornament aet with diamonds and rubies, a diamond necklace, cross and ear-nogs, bracelets. ruby and diamond necklace, two loose ruby drops, given to Lady Cbarlemont's mother by George IV, on tha day she was presented at Court, an amethyst necklace, a sold serpent brooch, a pend ant heart aet With tarqaoiae and an enameled pin representing a parrot, tha two latter ornaments being a present from the Queen to the Countess when a child, and a berth and tunio of old point JuDagnev whieh Uarainai rescue re ceived from Napoleon V- Tb Court np- beid the decision ot the other Court, and! dismissed the anneal with coats. 1 Friendiis is the only this? in the rerli -eroirj te r-j'-cna cf A Strang and Frightful Cattle and Horse Disease.

Crook's Campaign Chicago, August 1st. The Timet' special torn Dalla.

Texas, says Tha leading papers of the North having taken Sen at Gibb, of this oky severely to task for bis statement of the Indian situation in the Southwest and Crook's recent campaign, a correspondent called an Henry1 T. Underwood, just back from the scene of Urook's exploits. Underwood is a prominent and respected citizen and a capitalist of Dallas, He stands as high in public estimation for veracity as any other man in tbs city, and what he said to the Correspondent fully confirms every stated by Senator Gibbs, and it voioea the sentiments and feelings of the citizens of New Mexico and Aiizona in regird the In-dun policy of the general Government, and the recent exploit of Cro 'k. Underwood says he saw the Indians ciptured by Crook, and at they were nothing but old men, woxea and children. The Indians claimed that they had made a treaty with Cr--k, by which nil of Cbem.

including the hostile bue'es still in the mountains, were to bo allowed to return to the reservation. That treaty made, the squaws and old bucks started signal fires anl flirty virriors came in and made terns with Crook, and then departed for the mountains of Mexico to bring in the remaining hostile and surrender little Charley McComas. Up to date, neither tha thirty warriors, nor the hoitiles in tho mountains, nor Charley McCoiua have been seen or heard from. The people on ie border denounce the Indian polioy of the Government, and assert that discipline on tbe reservation would be better, and the punishment of the Indians more speedy and effective if tbe Texas Rarger policy were adopted. They say Crook had not fit material to fight the Indian? with, and discovered such to be the fsct when he came up with them, and showed good generalship in getting out of tbe mountains, a be had only a few soldiers, and his renegade Indians sconts showed they could not be reiieu on i uiic me nostue.

ine citizens in the immediate vicinity claim that Crook's expedition is barren of the desired results and. bloodshed, as he never en recovered Charley McCoiua-t it weakened the hostile to tbe extent of a single warrior, and that sueh treatment of tha Indians only encouraged similar raids. I i rr A New Cattle anil Horse Disease. Chicagj. July 3l3t.

A specitl from Council Bluffs, Iowa, says: A frightful cattle and horse disease has broken out in the northern part of this county. At first horned cattle were tha only ones affected, but it has now attacked horses thsy. are dying in great nnmbers. The firt indication of the disease is an irrita tion of the stomach, followed by swelling of the' bowels, after which the animal drops dead, in many instances in less than two inflammation spreading to the whole system. George Tredford, a farmer ia that vicinity, skinned an animal that died of the disease, and in doing so cut a dash across his knuckle.

poison extended to his whole system and he died in great agony.

He states that there are eight faro games in the city which pay $100 a Quarter to some one, and sixteen Chinese crames which nay $20 a month. The open ing of the games to the public would, he thinks, prevent young business men from frequenting them, because the fact would thus become kqown.

Accordingly, he has had an ordinance drafted and intro duced under which keepers of gambling houses would pay 100 a quarter license. the games to be open to the public, and to be carried on on the second floors of the respective buildings. The ordinance pro. hibits minors from playing or assisting in any way at the games. The District At torney is of opinion that tbe ordinance is in conflict with Sections 315 and 330 of the Penal Code, and is, therefore, illegal.
