THE EVENING GAZETTE: WEDNESDAY, JANUAEY 11. 1888. Evening: Gazette. Per TRBMH : . .10 «•««•! Per 1>»r....»B.0O lrD BY OABH1BW. WEDNESDAY. JAN. 11, 1888. Do WOMEN wish to vote ? Of course one or two here and thare do, but In one of the New England States,—progressive Massachusetts, but 800 females registered in order to vote at school elections. Uut women are most interested In educational matters and if they'll not vote at school elections will they vote at all if suffrage be extended to them. Understand: we accord to women all the priveleges that men enjoy. If she desires to vote, we say let her do it, although we think she'd better not, if she would consult hiT own peace and qutetneeo. Still, if he wishes to, we say let her do it? But does she wish it? We doubt it. THE LAWYERS of Lee county have protested against the delay in calling an election for Judge Eustaces successor. Lawyers In Whlteside are divided upon the matter, some favoring and some objecting to the delay. Carroll county has joined the upper counties in asking for a postponement until June. We should say that a majority of Whiteside lawyers favor an immediate call. If the Governor had minded his plain duty and called the election as his duty preocribes, ther«'d have been none of this muddle. Ino'.dentally, we might add that a county judge died somewhere down in Southern Illinois and the Governor forgot to think anything about the ''expense," but according to the newspapers will order an election at once. The lawyers of Lee county have written to the Governor'insisting that the upper counties which favor the postponement have not suffered from the absence of a judge as have the lower counties; hence they are indifferent to an immediate election; that the lower counties have suffered and that they need and want a judge at once. Some Whiteslde lawyers talk this way, but we are.not informed as to whether they have written to the Governor. On the other hand some attorneys here have said to us that they favor a delay, NEXT TO the evil of promiscuous —foreign immigration is that of foreign- born and foreign resident capitalists buying up lands in the United States and loaning money here. There is nol a State' in the Union but where they own large tracts, and they are now particularly turning their attention to the South. Hitherto one of the safeguards of our nation has been the fact that capital has not sought big landed interests, railroads and other corpora tlons offering readier and larger profits than real estate; but within the last few years foreign capital has been di reeled to lands in the United States and the evil is growing alarmingly fast. The surplus of capital across the ocean, and the very low rate of interest compels moneyed men there to seek outside „ investment. In one county of this State are 12,1)00 acres ol farm land owned by an Englishman who comes over, collects his rents and goes back agajn. lie makes no Improvement*), and his farm houses, some 100 in all, are dilapidated and his tenants fairly slave to give him his rents; out they go, if they don't pay to the utmost farthing. There are some tracts in territory west of Illinois as large as 60,000 acres owned by foreign residents. And this is all radically wrong. What a condition of affairs would ours, be to let England which once owned us own us again, this time by purchase of our lands. No non resident foreigner should be suffered to own real estate in any part of the United States. Land is getting very scarce and it is very high. If the world is permitted to come in and buy it up, there will be no chance for a poor man to work up to the ownership of a farm. —Nature can be awfully pretty when she pleases, as observe the frosting on a north window of a cold room. It is lovelier than finest lace, prettier than richest ferns more delicate than finest touches of master artist. —Last night Mr. Joslah mil, bvlng west of Sterling, Invited some twenty- five couples to his home. They had a fine time of It. George Drake tripped the light fantastic toe for the first time in eighteen years; lots more of the married folks likewise indulged in dancing. They had excellent refreshments served and everybody had the best sort of a time. —It is so easy to and fault that it is no wonder people are found to engage In that folly. Jiut it'does no good. Faultfinding neither builds up the man who Indulges In it, nor does it help the elty. When we can\help a thing along, we manage to keep still about it. People will listen to a growler just to hear how far the growling will carry him; but they never attach any Importance to what the fault-under may say and .are most apt to score him down aa one when he leaves. —Yesterday afternoon about three o'clock the employes of the Nothwest- ern at this station, twenty In all, clerks, operators, engineer, switchmen, car repairers and coal men, who had been under Mr. George Rogers, for so many yoan while station agent, presented him with a Masonic jewel (Master-mason, chapter, commander; and consistory combined; a most elegant and costly charm, as a testimonial of their esteem and regard It was presented by Mr. R. G. Swartout In a few pleating remarks. Mr Ilogera replied touchingly, profoundly Impressed with this exhibition of warm feeling entertained by his form er associate for him. It la proper to state that Mr. Rogers' relations with bis former employe* Is of the frlendll Mt aod c]a*eat kiad, a seetimeat i» just m warmly returned by Uv>m. —The Star Whist Club met last night at Mrs. Frank Patterson's. -Sleighing ia aa nice as nice can be and one can glide along as smooth aa on an ice-boat on a wood-locked lake. -Tho highest compliment any man can receive is to be told truthfully that he is laborsng disinterestedly for his ellow man. —Care killed a cat; worry bothers the brain. Why do it ? Why take on trou- )te, when there is so much of the genuine article ? —The committee on upper dam sub- icriptlons is nut to-day and working ike beavers. Many have doubled their nbscripttons and excellent reports are expected this evening. —Prairie chickens are to be seen at any time in the country now. A day or two ago, we saw a big covey of them ery ntar to Sterling. Thanks to the new game law. —The boast of the Hurlington managers is. that its employes are all polite and courteous, a boast that is praiseworthy, indeed. Politeness costs little, bnt It pays well. —From 2!S6 to 6:20 a. m. of each day (Sundays excepted) one has his choice ofthree trains for Chicago. Four hours later and then three hours and a trifle later, there are trains also bound east. —Mr. Sweet, of the dancing school, lopes to get up a fancy dress ball of the little folks who are members of his class. The precise time is not yet fixed, but it is expected to be some time during the next month. —On a still cold morning like this ;Wednesday)was there was bracingness about it, such as those living in warm countries never experience. It acted as t nic to the whole man, sending the blood through the veins in fast going speed, and strengthened muscle and braced nerve. It is countries like this with the cold winter weather that gives longevity to the people. • —There is a current expression to the effect that It may be proper for a lady to propose marriage to the gentleman in leap-year. It does'nt follow, however, that of necessity" the fellow to whom the question might be popped will acquiesce. Indeed, the chances are that such an unusual proceeding would so scare the life out. ot_him..that..-be could'nt answer yes, or no. —In all peace and good will, in all amity and friendship, laboring together to the common good, we should never agree to publish aught that would mur the good feeling prevailing. Whatever be said of us when we lay aside our pen as editor of the GAZETTE, no man shall ever say that he read from ui a line that was excltive of ill-feeling, or a word that tended to strife. —A brute of a man will pound his wife, but he is a devil when he will goad, taunt, revile and slander. We have lately heard of the case of a poor woman who has just such a fiend as her life-partner. She would have a divorce, but lacks the money to pay the cost in the case; and ho knowing this, makes her days a burden and a terror. He accuses her of inddnlity defies her to obtain release from him and insists tnat she shall never know another moment's peace on this earth. And such a man, we say, is a devil. —Yesterday the lower house of the Iowa legislature elected William Henry Redman, speaker of that body Mr. Redman was born and reared In Whiteside county, being the son of Eli and Catharine Redman.old settlers of Genesee, where Speaker Redman was born in 1840. At 22 years of age (in 1802) he was made Captain of Company C., 12th Ills, cavalry, and served with gallantry throughout the war; indeed, he was not mustered out until June 1800. Captain Redman afterwards read law at home and soon removed to Montezuma, Poweshlek county Iowa, where he has since resided. He-has many acquaintances and friends in Whiteslde, who will be greatly pleased at this evidence of his success in life. The GAZETTE is greatly pleased to be able to record this proud achievement of a self-made Whiteside county boy. Slaughter HOIUM of Paris. Close by the market of La Villette are the slaughter houses where the oxen are killed by a blow from the merlin anglais, a sort of sledge hammer, one extremity of which is rounded into the form of a punch. The slaughter man strikes the ox In the middle of the forehead and punches a hole which etnns the animal, and through thla hole he plunges a cane Into the'brain and the animal dies Instantly. The ox is only bled after it la dead. The Jewish batchers, on the other hand, who have a special organization depending on the consistory of Paris, bleed their beeves alive. At the slaughter house the Jewish butchery is directed by a controller, who has under his orders schohtlin or socrlflcers. There are generally five schohUm. When a butcher wishes to have an ox killed for Jewish customers he applies to the controller, who sends him a schohet to kill the beast according to the Mosaic law. The ox has his four feet bound with a cord, which is attached to a windlass and tightened until the animal falls on its side helpless. A helper polls back the head of the ox, and the schohet, reciting mentally a prayer, advances and cuts Its throat at one stroke, and the animal is left to bleed to death and die in agony BO terrible that It melta the hearts even of the slaughter men, who often give the ox a blow with the hammer to put an end to his sufferings In spite of the Mosaic code.—Paris Cor. New York Sun. Velocity of Meteor*. The singular fact ia demonstrated that, while the most rapid cannon shots scarcely attain a velocity of 600 metern a second— over 1,500 miles per hour—meteorites are known to penetrate the sir with a velocity of 40,000 or even 60,000 meters per second, a velocity which raises the air at once to a temperature of 4,000 (legs, to 8,000 degg centigrade,—Boston Tran- •crlpL Xow Sort of K*M.

AN ARMY OF AMERICAN "BUMS" IN A WINTERLESS LAND. Thrilling Tales of Wrong* and Mishap* Poured Into th« Ear* of " I.lft«nJnc TraTelen — A Trae Te«t— Sailor IB !>!*• A I>lff»r«noe. The BIUMC sort of greasy, squalid, malodorous bummer who comes Into Boston when November*! chill blasts sweep through rural Massachusetts has Invaded this wlntcrless land. He began his pilgrimage this way by flrst" trying El Paso, Tex., as a place of winter resort. El Paso, the gnto city to Mexico, has an almost unendurable summer climate, bnt it possesses a model winter one, when It is a pleasure to live merely for the sake of llv- ng. Invalids will find the dry, warm air of El Paso as good aa that of many an Italian or Mediterranean resort during ihe winter months. But the American bum" is no invalid; he is a sturdy vaga xmd with a genuine tropical liking for ;he warm side of a police station stove, indeed. I believe he Is actuated by that Beml-consclons desire all men of Northern, climates have to seek a warmer cltma when sharp and rigorous winter sots in,. freezing lakes and rivers and benumbing lingers and toes. Latterly quite an army of American tramps have invaded Mexico, working their way down the Central railway, and reaching this cosmopolitan capital with an Instinct that surely' points out to them where may bo found men who speak their own language. They are cunning chaps, these American gypsies, and will tell you a thrilling tale of wrongs done them by the Mexicans, of theif utter and unmerited destituttop, and then strike yon for the usual WSpll loan "till they can get work." I mot a chap the other day and ho whined plteously. He hod been stranded here without a cent, he said, the man for whom he was to have worked having failed In business, and he had tried to obtain! work, Which I knew was untrue, at both the Central and National railways. I asked him if he had not been to see Col. More, the United Statns consul general, who has a sort of eemi-piirental function as regards Americans in distress. No; he had not thought of that. "Well," I remarked, "until you have mode known your case to him and had it investigated I shall not give you anything." He turned away Sorrowful, giving me a look as if I were a Very austere person upon whom a just and discerning Providence would soon bring Well merited disaster. He never vi ent to the consul general, and the lost I saw of him he was working the same old racket with occasional success. CASES OP REAL DISTRESS. - There is an organization, here known aa the American Benevolent society, which tries to do something effective for American citizens really in distress, and this society does good oftentimes, but its conductors have come to know the difference between genuine and simulated cases of distress, and when a man asks aid they test him. with a meal ticket, for if a fellow Is really hungry he will snatch at ft meal ticket as if it were money itself. Then for the sick American stranded here there Is an excellent institution known as the American hospital well supported, but requiring a good sum for the extension of Its buUdings. The English colony contribute to tliln institution when any British subject- needs to go there. It is a good Charity for touring Americans to remember. So the really deserving American here who is in actual distress need not fear Starvation. The railway managers always give pusses out of the country to men. Well recommended to themjby the benevolent-society's officials. Of course- a charity passenger is not sent home in a Pullman car, and this is resented by the tramp, who would ask for a special train U his nerve were a little more developed. At Vera Cruz, the other day, I was Standing on the custom house pier watch- Ing the lateen sails of the flying water craft, absorbed in the beauty of the scene, the tossing waters of the big gulf, the bright tropic sky and all the movement of a gay and lively port. Then there came. an unwelcome interruption in my own native tongue, which sounds so ill at times when the wrong man nses it to you under foreign skies. "Please, sir, could you not do something for a poor sailor in distress? I'm sick and trying to get out of this place. " The speaker was a gaunt, pale lad with eyes that could counterfeit distress most languishlngly. He added i "I have hod no breakfast, and it's now 9 o'clock." To this broad hint I responded by giving him a quarter and some sound advice. ' WAS NOT HIS FAULT. , "Have you been 'to the American con- sulf" I asked. He had not, but it was not his fault, for he was Just out of the port hospital and did not like to trouble the consul. A few hours later I was taking some pale ale under an arcade with a Bostonian aud a Baltlmorean, and soon I saw my "young sailor in distress" heave in sight. He came along with eyes down, and, not discerning me, he stopped at our table and renewed to my friends his request for money, and was as hungry aa ever. They gave him a few bits, and ha went on. Shortly after I chanced to meet Mm and said: "Aren't you ashamed to be begging in the streets, when all you have to do, if your coso is a good one, la to go to Consul Hoff?" This time I did not bestow my silver upon him, bnt let him go his way. 'By and by I met Sam, the Sam, a lively darky, who acts as Interpreter, guide, philosopher and friend for English and American tourists in Vera Cruz. "Yah," said Sam, "you 'Jes' bet I know dat feller. He's one of de gang dat's struck dls yeah town. D'jer give nim anything?" And then Bam unrolled a tale about American bummers on the coast Of the Mexican gulf that gave me a new idea of the ingenuity and brass of my lower strata countrymen, who a»» roaming around the world. Sam's idea of the tramp Is that he is an aristocrat, because he won't work, a man who spends his occasional money In pleasure, and who goes about seeing the world. All the difference, according to Sam, between the tramp and the high toned globe trotter Is the amount of baggage curried. I soon found that the genial trumpers had been working Vera Cruz for some time, finding the generous sailors who come ashore for a day's lark free handed, and properly contributory to the support of afflicted "mates." ' The tramps read the papers, and they nave found out that a country without snow, with a blue sky and warm sun all winter, is a good country to recreate one's self in, and from this time on the peregrinating chap who bums through Nebraska and Illinois all summer will seek Mexico or the Mexican border towns IB the winter. — Mexico Cor.

Apropos of dop? tin old f rlcml I met the other aftumoon drew my attention to a miporb Su Bernard that went by with a stnoll yoimcc man In tow. "There," he said, "Is the mont; dangerous breed of dot? In existence. It Is worse than the bull dog. No one should be allowed to keep a St. Bernard In the dty, except under guard, and the freedom with which they are kept in flat houses full of women and children and led about the crowded streets Is an outrage on publio safety. They are naturally ill tempered and vicious and you can never tell when the»f will break out. Their mild and dlg- nlflod appearance renders people unsuspicious of their real natures and their great streagth makes them as dangerous as lions. Even with their teeth (lied, as is customary in Europe, they do a great deal of damago. With their teeth fuM grown they could mangle n woman or child to death before help could come to tho victim. I have owned several of them myself and have never had one that I could trust with strangers, so I gave up keeping them altogether rather than risk harming any one through them." I enjoyed a melancholy Illustration of this statement within twenty-four hours. The mildest and most benevolent looking St. Bernard possible to find belongs to one of my neighbors. My own little Yorkshire terrier met Mils benign big brother of his in the hallway of the house and barked at him at a distance of several feet. With a sudden roar of rage the giant leaped at him and fanged him. He was pulled off at once, but, olasl my poor little comrade of seven years of midnight labor lies in tho New York Veterinary hospital with a hole in his chest that may be, I fear me, like merry Mercutlo's, and the benevolent St. Bernard still travels to and fro, nursing his latent fury in a household of women and little children.— Trumble in New York News. The Art of Modern Cooltlng. Tho social science associations of tha country have ably discussed a large number of subjects involving the welfare of the human race. But, so far as we are aware, no one of them bos made an earnest effort to discover tho cause of the backwardness with which the useful, the Indispensable art of cooking advances. The man that travels mucti is painfully aware of the existence of such backwardness. True, in our largo cities there are enough good cooks, cooks that raise their vocation to the dignity of a profession. But these are the exceptions. The fact remains that when one gets off the great main Lino he discovers that as a rule the cook of the period is not a contributor to the progress o£ the ope, but rather to dyspepsia. Why should this be sol So much cooking has been done in all parts of the world, including the Cannibal Islands, from tlmo immemorial that It does seem as if all its secrets ought to be In the possession of oil its votaries in this well advanced stage of the Nineteenth century. And yet it was only the other day that the editor of a leading New England newspaper roso with a sigh: aud remarked that a great popular want of that venerable section of the Union was a more general (lUfusion of country Inns at which one could get a truly "square meal of victuals.'' And what is true of New England Is measurably true of the middle states, is true with a vengeance of the south and of the hog and hominy Occident. The country inn at which a truly square meal is served would seem to be the exception. Inns abound at which the brood is as heavy as an amateur epic, the coffee as difficult to settle as Dick Swivel- ler's debts, the steak—fried. As for the cooking In tho back country of Canada— well, tho United States is at peace with the Dominion, and wo have no desire to say anything that is calculated to disturb the existing friendly relations. —New York Tribune. , A Few Gastronomlcal Item*. Senator Joe Brown, of Georgia, says tha •weotast thing on earth to him Is "pud- dled duck and sweet potatoes," and an old waiter at Washington says that John C. Calhoun dearly loved sweet potatoes and opossum. He would come into a restaurant and say: "I want you to get me a nice fat oppossum. You must cook tt the day after it is killed; parboil it first and then put. It into a hot oven with bofled sweet potatoes around It, and cook it slowly until it is'brown. .If you can get a 'coon make some 'coon gravy and pour It over tho "possum and flavor with salt, pepper and sage. Calhoun often hunted 'possums himself. He liked hot corn bread and buscuits, and tho only purt of a chicken he would eat was the breast. Andy Johnson's favorite bread was the old fashioned corn dodger, and Zach. Taylor, upon sitting down, to an elaborate dinner and looking with an annoyed expression at the bin of fare, was asked if there was anything more that he wanted. He replied, as he scanned the pate de fol gras and the other French daintjes: "This is all -very well, but I would really prefer some flitch and eggs.'' Taylor was very fond of iced milk, and It is thought that the lunch of cherries which he washed down with Iced milk on the •day of the laying of the corner stone of the Washington monument had a great deal to do with helping him Into his coffin. —Frank G.
