COXEY'S HORSE Coxey's army has proved an Immense joke, But a small body of tramps started on the march and many of them deserted. New recruits are scarce. One of the ridiculous phases t pl the episode IB a display of sympathy for Coxey and antagonism to capital on account of one of his financial Investments. Coxey bought a blooded horse for $40,000. He had $16,000 m cash which he paid over.givlng a mortgage for the balance. The mortgage is due and Coxey has not the wherewith to moot it. On account of the demand for the payment of It the holders are denounced as extortionists and Coxey is condoled with. The Populists of Canton, 0., even went BO far as to call a mass meeting to raise funds to relieve this new Don Quixote from tho hands of the "Sharks." To their credit be It said that only $4.50 was In tho hat after it had been passed around but the incident shows how misplaced sympathy often Is and how blindly people follow their prejudices- Coxey'a $40 000 horse ought to have a place In history. It deserves to b e Immortalized in the second readers of our schools. WILLIAM I. STEAD'S book, "If Christ Came to Chicago" is one of the severest orittioisms of the evlla of n great city, ever published. The writer handles crime and Immorality with a sensational detail and does not hesitate to attack the wrongs of munlo ipal government or the weaknesses of the wealthy. The work deals with facts. It is not a book for children nor for the household. It is for those who form the destinies of cities and reform depraved humanity. THE city expenditures for tho last nine months, omitting the extraordinary expenditures, were $43,436 30. For the same period last year the expenditures were $45,793.07. Council' man Dol&n enumerates the exttaor- dinary expenditures In his card and the public can gather from those fig. ures information upon which to form an opinion. The council is democratic and Chairman Dolan for the benefit of his party asks the publication of the facts. IT is the privilege of the pjibllc to commend or condemn any public expenditure. It la uot the privilege of the Pharos to misrepresent In order to create prejudice. The sole object of the present cam- palgn against the council is to break It down because of'votes cast against the gas company- The sole object of the Pharos is to accomplish this end and It does not depend upon the truth to do it. _ MONOPOLY seems to be much the same the world over. The Chicago Tribune says: The fi-as trust is odloua not merely because it charges a great deal more for gas than it ought to, butbecause about every person who makes a complaint of overcharges or something of that kind is treated as If he were a swindler or a simpleton. In short nearly all these corporations which enjoy public grants of monopoly privileges have very bud manners. THK DEMOCRATS HAVE FIVE MEMBERS OF THE COUNCIL AND WITH THE MAYOR'S VOTE CAN CONTROL THE BODY.—Pharos, May Gtb, 1892. IT is reported and apparently correctly that President Cleveland will veto tho Bland Bbignlorage bill. THE administration is preserving a discreet silence on the subject of Queen HI. THE Pharos does not seem to like Mayor Read's administration. They Are fceavlpR KapldlF. A good many foot piints lead out^of the Democratic party nowadays. Ex- Mayor Thompson, of Detroit,for many years a party loader and worker, has publicly renounced the party which, he says, "has* demonstrated its absolute incapacity to conduct national affairs." General Torrence, of New York, says that during a recent trip to California and the southeast he per. eonally talked with at least one thousand late Democrat who would not vote the ticket again. He himself voted for Cleveland, but Bays he has had enough of that statesman. Duiv Ing hii trip he found the disgust among Democrats widespread- and among all classes.— lodlftnapolw Journal.

How Ill« (lonvornlon to Roman Catholic- Ism Crmnco.l Him from Ednciitor to Story Teller-HI* Flint Literary Effort*. I spent an afternnon la.st week with ono of the moM eliiM-minf," writers of the United Stutus, writes Vranh O, Carpftntcr i" fhoCbioug-o Herald. I refer to RichJii-.l Malcolm Johnston, who ranks with Uncle Remus ami Thomas Nelson ['age as amontf the greatest story tellers of tho south, and whoso dialect talcs of the Georgia hills have delighted the readers of the magazines for years. It was at his home on West North avenue in Baltimore that I called upon him. His liouso is a three-story red brick,, which is covered with vines and looks out upon ono of tho widest streets of the city. The living rooms of the family are on tho second floor, and it was in tho parlor, furnished with antique pieces, that I met Mr. Johnston. He is not so rich to-day as he was before the war, when he owned a plantation in the south and possessed the luxurious surroundings of a well-to-do planter of his time. He lives very comfortably, however, and his income from his writings isenotifrh to support well himself and his family. It is not generally known to tho public that Richard Malcolm Johnston is one of the best educators of tho United States, lie was a professor in the university of Georgia at the time tho war bc^an, and when it closed, Jeavirjff himself and all his friends poor, he opened a boarding 1 school for boys at his home, near Sparta, in Georgia, and made here for years $20,000 and upward annually by teaching. He had about fifty boys, who paid him tuition fees of ¥300 a year, and the most famous families of the south sent their children to him. Very few teachers in the United States to-day can make as much as 520,000 a year, and tho story of how Mr. Johnston gave up his school and devoted himself to writing for an income about one-tenth this sizo is an interesting one. He told it to me in response to my questions. Said he: "I like the profession of ttaching very much and 1 look upon it BICIIABD MALCOLM JOHNSTOX, as my life work. I never thought of making money by writing for pay, and it was not until I came to Baltimore that I realized that I could write anything which • had a real money value. I left Georgia on account of the death of my daughter. We loved her clearly, and I could not enduro life amid the old associations without her. I'gave up my school and moved to this city and began teaching here. About forty of my boys came from the south to Baltimore to enter my school, and had I not changed my religion I would probably be teaching to-day. Soroo time after I camo hero, however, I grow convinced that my religious ideas were wrong, and from being an Episcopalian I was converted to Catholicism and became a member of tho Catholic church. The roost of my students were Episcopalians, and when their parents learned of the change in my religious belief they withdrew their sons from the school, and the result was that I eventually gave up teaching. In the meantime I had written some short stories, which were published in a southern magazine, that was then printed here in Baltimore. These now form part of my book, known as tho 'Dukesborongli Tales.' They attracted attention, but I never thought of their having any money value until one day Jlr. Alclen, tho editor of Harper's Magazine, asked me what 1 hud received for them, lie was surprised when I told him thnt I had written them for nothing, and ho said that ho would bo glad to have mo do Borne writing for Harper's, and that if I could give him stories lilto those he would pay for them. I then wrote some stories for Harper's. They were published and paid for, and I have been writing from that time to this. My first story was published after I was fifty years of age." As Richard Malcolm Johnston said this I looked into his bright blue eyes and could not realize that he was more than seventy years of age. It is true that his kair and mustache aro frosted silver, but his checks aro rosy with health and his voice lias the silvery ring of youth, lie is a tall, straight, fine-looking man, and ho is full of enthusiasm and life. He is modest in the extreme concerning 1 himself and his work, and he- told »o that it was n continual surprise to him that his stories were accepted by the magazines. "I suppose," said ho, "it is because they ure to a lari^o extent of historical value. They picture a people and a time which is fast passing away. They are true to life, and they aro merely my remembrances of .the people of my boyhood. Tho dialect which I use is tho language of the people among whom I was raised, and my characters .are real characters, with their names changed." . -• • ' R»llw«r Accident! In America.

The Palace of tho Tullnrle* In tho D»y» ' iif Napolonn 111, Miss Anna L. Hickncll, for many years a governess in tho family of one of the ladies of Kmpross Eugenie's household, contributes an article on "The Tuilerics Under lliu Second Empire" to the Century, from which wo extract tho following: It must be acknowledged that tho Tuilerics, built at different periods, and arranged for various necessities, was not 11 convenient habitation. Several of tho large galleries had been cut iip into apartments for tho use of tho numerous members of Louis Philippe's family; these were separated by passages having no means of external light or ventilation, so that lamps burned day and night, and tke Highest of all in Leavening Power.—Latest U.

The different floors communicated in the interior by narrow,' winding staircases, also lighted at all times; so that the first impression to visitors was strangely lugubrious ami funereal. Two floors had also often been made out of one, so that the ceilings were low, and the deep windows prevented the free transmission of light, especially darkening tho rooms situated toward the north. The conveniences of modern life were very imperfect. During the greater part of the emperor's reign there was not even water put in, and the daily supply of the inmates was brought up in pails to the various apartments. Tho sanitary arrangements and clrainag-e were very bad; in the regions inhabited by the servants, the air was absolutely pestilential. The empress occupied the first floor, communicating by a small private staircase with the apartments of the emperor, which were on the ground floor, near those afterward devoted to the use of the prince imperial. In tho first year of the empire the furniture of the private apartments was not remarkable, but at a later period the rooms used by the empress were arranged with exquisite taste and elegance. The first salon, furnished m two •shades of pale green with gold tracings, 7cont»ined ' an immense mirror, which 'reflected tho whole view of the gar- dons and of the Champa Elysees, as far as tho Arc de 1'Etoile. Above the doors •were painted tropical birds with bright plumage. This delightful and charm- Ing room was used by tho chamberlains and ladies-in-waiting. It opened into tho Salon Rose, furnished and decorated in different shades of rose color. The chimneypiece was of white marble, adorned with lapis lazuli and gold; the doors were decorated with paintings of flowers; the ceiling represented the Arts paying homogo to tho empress, and a genius carrying the prince imperial In tho midst of flowers. 4 MAY BE PROSECUTED.

After his ordination he was made professor of philosophy at the Seminary of the Order of Minius, then •unite of the Church of St. Vincent do 1'iuil, in Lyons. In 1871 Mgr. Ginoul- hiac miule him his vicar general. Subsequently he was put in charge of the important parish of St. Pierre de Vaisc, which covered the worldnffmcti's quarter* in Lyons. He was promoted to the archbishopric of Aix in ISSii. This was an extraordinary promotion, because lie was the first simple priest who in half a century had bci-npivon an archbishopric without serving- as a bishop.

A year ago President Cleveland stood before a great coneourso of his fellow countrymen and declared his beliefs, purposes and expectations. Ho predicted progress and prosperity. Ho promised absolute fidelity to high principles. In general, the country was to bo better governed, happier and more contented. Taxes would be reduced end burdens lightened. Labor would have a larger share of its products. The interests of the many would bo nrotectcd against the encroachments of the rich and powerful few. Justice and purity in public affairs and success in private undertakings were to be the first fruits of democracy enthroned in Washington. A multitude of democrats heard and rejoiced. Their hearts swelled with pride and their anticipations were unbounded. . The address of the new president was flashed all over the land, and everywhere his partisans, the men whoso votes had put him in power, exulted as they spelled out his words of cheer. Thousands of them already enjoyed, in imagination, all of the good things of life. More especially, although tho month was March, and February snows Btill lingered, thoy could fairly scent rich meadows of that clover, the thought of which gave zest to their favorite campaign of the preceding summer, the rhyme which ran thus- GroTOr, Grovcr, i Four yc»rs more ot Grovor; In ho goes, Out they go, Then we'll bo in clover. Such was anticipation. Mow different has been experience! Where now are the fat times of prosperity and the happy days of contentment? In what can democracy take pride or the country find pleasure? How many Americans aro in the clover fields and how great a multitude find nothing better than thistles? . Tho most tremendous facts of the first year of Grover's four clover seasons are painfully familiar. The largest is a panic unprecedented in severity. Behind that great disaster follow its evil brood of business failures, more numerous and extensive than were ever before known, loss of employment for hundreds of thousands of honest toilers, widespread misery and privation, the sacrifice ot great property interests, tho foreclosures of mortgages on evils of like OOUTUE-30ULAKP. ages be stopped. The archbishop protested ag-ainst this action in a Jotter to Jr. FnHior.es, the then nature. The first sale oi United States bonds made within the last third of a century to obtain money i'or the current expenses of the government is one feature of the democratic clover crop. Falling and inadequate revenues have grown iu Grover's meadows. Discontent 1ms spread and deepened since tho day when happier times were ponderously prophesied. Social unrest has been widened and intensified. The proposal of an income tax has engendered class strife. Prolonged struggles over tho inflation of the currency have arrayed section against section. The democratic tariff has sot tho whole world of industry in a turmoil. Business stagnates, "while Bonrbons fight in tho halls of congress which were to havebeen'the president's forcing beds of prosperity. The. Hawaiian fiasco has deepened the disgust engendered by blunders and crimes that aro worse than blunders at home.

Such, in the briefest possible space,, is the great change wrought in ono brief year. Where there were confidence and hope despair and fear reigns to-day. Power has proved the bane of' the party which seized upon it so^ eagerly. Its pledges aro unfulfilled, and its hopes of inauguration day are aj mockery of memory now.
