N«w YORK seems to be trying honestly to pnt some of her Napoieons of finance #here they will do the most good-in the State prison. But it U a colossal job, in performing whiehr.he hits the sympathy as Srell as the praise of the public. WA8rttNGTO» toadyism is the meanest sentiment "in this country. To illustrate the fact, it is stated that when President Cleveland and his wife selected the First Presbyterian church, Washington, as their plate of worship, it became so popular that sittings were hot to be had at extravagant premiums. The church is now advertised tor sale or to rent, the congregation having dwindled away so. The crowd now attend the church of the Covenant, where President Harrison has a pew. .. . . • Hitimt M. STASI.EY has made a profitable engagement to lecture in America next season. He will receive $25,000 for his New York lectures alone and $4,000 for every other address he delivers. Professor flryce, the author of "Tho American Commonwealth," whish is by long odds the best book ever written on the United States by a European, if not, indeed, by anybody, has almost decided to deliver a coruse of lectures in this country also. Mr. Bryce was a member of the last Gladstone cabinet, is one of the most active of the likeral members of the parliament and is n good speaker. Americans will also have an opportunity of hearing from Sir Morell Mackenzie his own versions as to whether he killed or prolonged the life of Emperor Frederick by a course of treatment at vari- imce with the views of Vircbow and the most eminent German physicians. To complete tho list, Louis Fagan will en lighten us on the treasures of the British Museum. They will be all welcome and will doubtless carry back to Europe a goodly store of American dollars. TUB discovery that tho young rowdies who lately disfigured with red paint tho statue of John Harvard and the good name of Harvard University are "young gentlemen," and members of the " best families" who can not therefore bo prosecuted openly, puts that performance in an entirely new light. Hitherto it has been supposed that tho authors of this diverting bit of vandalism wore misdemeanants of the common sort, ordinary young loafers carrying extraordinary alcoholic loads and correspondingly reckless of law and decency. Similar conduct by other lawbreakers has been even more harshly characterized before now. The position taken by the Harvard authorities reveals the vulgar error. Henceforth it should bo understood that a misdemeanant who belongs to one of the best families is not to be punished if ho does acts which in another would be disgraceful or felonious. The laws were made for the "common people"—not for the best families. THE most amusing feature of tho English Derby this year is the utter discom- SOfES.

As for Sainfoin, the flyer that won the gieat victory—why Sainfoin wasn't even "in it." Thus the wise turf expert Truth wrote May 10: "If any of my readers have backed Sainfoin 1 advise them to hedge at once;" and again, "Sainfoin need no longer bo thought about in connection with Derby while Surefoot and Right Away are on their legs." The cause of the sage coun sel was the sale of Sainfoin a month before tho race by "astute" owners to young nobleman for $40,000. If the horse had any chance ;of winning of ;course he would not have been sold at any price. So the experts lunged nt the young purchaser as follows: "When Sir James Miller's unsophisticated intelligence is more developed by experience ho wil recognizethat clever people, who thorough ly understood "the great came' 1 never sel a horse of high reputation unless, as tin French say they have reason." bu Sainfoin won the race, and the readers o Truth, with many a noble earl, have rea son to mourn. Such things frequentlj happen in this country, by the way. THE family of the prince of Wale seems to be determined to break awa from the royal traditions and to marry fo personal rather than state reasons. Th recant marriage of one • of the prirce' daughrersto a Scotch peec descended from a long lino of Highland chief's who spok Gaelic up to a century ago was tho firs first break. Now comes a report that A bert Victor, the eldest son of the heir ti tho throne, is willing to renounce hi right to the succession if he is only allowed ternary the girl he loves. .Tho young lady happens to be a granddaughter of Queen Victoria, and therefore, the young man's own first cousin. From a romantic point in view this match is very interesting but is not so commedable in other respects. European royal families are the victims of intermarriages of cousins, and nearly every sprig of royally is closely related to every other royal sprig. What they need is an infusion of common, honest, plebeian blood that would give them healthy bodies and sound minds. The young fellow who is anxious to throw away a throne so that he may marry according to his fancy, in not robust of body or bright in intellect, but ho seems to have power enough of will to be able to overcome tho deep-rooted prejudices of his sturdy old grandmother. He wil! probably have his way. . TIIKHB is an evolution in public taste in amusements as well as a public taste in dresn. What is heartily indorsed to-day is put away to-morrow. Thisru is truth in the axiom of the distinguished statesman, Horace Mann, that "Nothing is constant but change; nothing certain but death. Negro ministrelsy has followed tho way of all flesh. It has been sacrificed to the do- siro for novelty. Tho old-fashioned cork artist is sehbin seen nowadays. A now conceit in black has sprung l'ha>nix-liko (pardon the expression) from his ashes. This late fancy is attired in garb that sets chronology at defiance and hopelessly mixes the past and the present. Tho negro minstrel—ho of tho olden time- was worth cultivating', because he was a typo of a peculiar feature of American life. The plantation darkoy is as much an inheritance to the people of this country as an Indian. He is a gunro study, a silhouette whose character profile is as clear a« if cut in a cameo. In him is tho queerest combination of broad humor and simplicity, pathos and emotion. The stage representations of unique being had an ethonol- ogical value as giving u glimpse into tho Ufa of a real American institution. Besides, tho only music that has any claim to u distinctive American character is tho negro melody. It is indigenous to the soul of the South.

LONDON.—The accident to the City of Rome, although attended by no njury or loss of life to passengers or crew, elicits general condemnation of the prac- ,ice of racing which has become the rule •ather than the exception with trans- Atlantic vessels. It is true that the passengers themselves united in praise of the captain and his officers, but that is in act so universally indulged in by the patrons of ocean-liners, that it has long iince become insic-nificant and in most caws perfunctory. Despite the complimentary resolutions it is beyond question that the vessel had an extremely nar- v escape from going to tho bottom, and Js also plain that tho passengers were thoroughly frightened and adequately estimated their danger.

FIHDAY, Juno 6, Senate.— The silver bill held the day in tho senate and in the discussion nothing new was brought out. When the senate was called to on'cr, Sen. Mitchell moved to reconsider tho vote by which tho senate yesterday passed the bill authorizing the construction of a railway bridge across tho Columbia rivor, near Vancouver, and the motion was entered. A now conference wan ordered on the de- •iciidont pension bill. The silver bill was then token up and Sen.

The previous question was ordered—yeas, 115; nays, 70. Mr. Morrill, in explanalion of Ihe reporl, stated tho conference committee had struck oul Ihe dependent feature of tho senate bill, und tna service feature of the house bill. Tho measure as determined upon was not exactly what ho would desire, but il was the best that he could obtain. It would distribute $35,000,000 among tho poor soldiers of Ihis nnlion. Mr. Yoder, of Ohio, protested against the conference reporl, holding that it ignored tho demands of the soldier, loft his prayer unanswered and buried in tho basement of Ihe Capitol his petitions for a per diem rate of pensions. Mr. Springer of 111., entered a vigorous protest against the manner in which tho bill was brought before Ihe house. Ho said there was no opportunity offered to members to examine its provisions. As he viewed the bill, il was an instance of the laboring of Iho mountain and Ihe bringing forth of a very insignificant mouse. Mr. Turner, of New York, said thai Ihe Morrill bill, as it passed Ihe house, was u. respectable measure, because it had a respectable father; bul the pending bill was wilhout a father, bul with a considerable number of wel nurses.

If anything lists been said about tho carriage of the body the instruc- lion has been confined to nn injunction to keep back the shoulders. " I n a nervous effort to obey Ibo latter injunction children ore often found with hollowed backs and shoulder-blades driven in against the spine. When the shoulders are violently and persistently thrown back the shoulder-blades almost meet. Ihey press on tho spine and jam the upper part of it forward. The effect of it is simply unavoidable. Mr. Checkley illustrated his proposition by fixing a piece of stick T. fashion across the top nf his Malacca cane. When he pressed Ihe end of Ihe cross-piece backward and downward the flexible Malacca bent correspondingly torward, as the spine itself does under like circumstances. "There is the sort of thing, that children are called upon to do day after day. Is it any wonder that ,,they cannol nllain proper strenjjth under such treatment? The sbady voluntary contraction of the rau.-clcs (like that exerted in throwing back the shoulders) is death to muscular tissues. It prevents a free circulation and the tissues any Ihey waste away. "If a child is senl to school at the age of five or six the teacher should watch him at his desk to make sure that he maintains an erect position.

My holding tho body erect and straight the child will find it easy to breathe in the costal way—that is, with the upper port of the chest. Ihis, 1 claim, is the proper way to krealho. Of course it is not easy to learn all this at once, but a careful teacher, by taking pains, could soon bring her class into such a condition that they would find . it easier to stand, walk and sit right than wrong. "It is not necessary to spend any special half hour a day in teaching these things. The instructor who is willi children all the lima is the one to keep Ihcm standing or sitting properly.

Since 1872 women have voted for member*of town councils and in the years intervening Ihe privilege ot voting for school boards, poor law guardians uud olher local bodies have been added.

WASHINGTON, June 10.—The statistical returns of Juno to the department of agriculture include preliminary.estimates of tlio area of wheat, ],jth spring and winter, and its condition. While several slates increased Ihe area of winter wheat last; autumn the heavy reduction by ploW- ing nnd planting in olher crops to replace the winter wheat killed in Illinois and Indiana and, to a limited extent, in two or three other stales, has reduced the acreage in every wheat growing state of any prominence except Kansas nnd Oregon. Tho percentages represent Ihe aclual area now growing, in comparison with Ihelncrenge harvested last fall, and include all thai was seeded last fall except what hns boon replaced by olh- er crops.

The UijfiortiMl Oiituronko oflmllans Without Material Foundation. HELENA, June 12.—The reports of the Indiai. hostilities in Oiistern Montana, ore largely sensational. Tho account re- ccivtfd here implicated the Cheyennes in depredations on the cattle herds. Ihe onlv murderous crime committed was the kilfing of Robert Felgnson, foreman of the Ramsay cattle company on May 6th. The guilty ' Indians were surrendered and iailed. and are now awaiting trial at Miles City. The recent movement of a band of Cheyennes led to the suspicion that they were making ready to go on the war path and the military took prompt, measures to check the outbreak if meditated. The ex.iggerated ru- ors scared a number of exposed settlers and in response to •representations of danger the governor dispatched to Miles City some arms and fixed ammunition. Exiij'geraled stories have been wed east by sensational correspondents having very little of fact to sustain them. Gov. Toole said this iil'lenvon lhat he had an oilicer at Allies Cily who did not fcem to share in the fears of trouble indulged in by some people near the eastern Montana cattle ranges. There ore soldiers enough to cope with any Indians meditating mischief in Ouster county. The opinion here is tlmt there will be no conflict and that the Cheyennes can be kept under control without bloodshed. WII/I., HEXKF1T TJ1K POOH.
