Mention of athletic spotts suggests
Richard K. Fox, whose name appears
frequently as stakeholder and prize
giver. He has just concluded not to
din yet, although for a nionth or two
the outlook was the other way. If he
had died ho would have left a fortune
of half a million so wickedly obtained,
as many readers will think, that his
future state would not have been con
jectural. He bought, tho Police Gazette
fcr $300 when it was about to stop,
revived it chiefly by means of making
a hobliy of tho ruder pastimes, and has
in seven ye trs, niado a fortuna to In?
aaliamn I of. Rut he isn't abashed, and
tun building, emblazoned with immense
signs, stands directly across Franklin
square from the . Harper Brothers.
Needless to say, thero is little sympa
thetic intercourse between the two con.
cerris. George William Curtis, editor
of Harper's Weekly, and Fox of tho
Police Gazette may well be regarded as
the antipodes of journalism. I was
once aboard of a Staten Island train
when they sat in adjoining seats. With
Fox was Kenward Philp, of his stair,
whose death has been followed by so
many anecdotes of waggery, "I beg
your pardon," said Philp, very politely
touching Curtis on the arm, "but let
me introduce you to a neighbor and
fellow-journalist. Though rivals in
business, you ought to know each other
Curtis turned half round, saw a
well dressed, carefully mustached man,
to whom he extended his hand.
"And who is it I have tho pleasure
of knowing" ho asked, in his charac
teristic manner of adahlo dignity.
"Mr. Fox of the Polioe Gazette," re
sponded Mr. Philp, in equal courtli
ness. "We ore going to a scrapping
match not more than a mile or two
front your residence, and would be
really delighted to have you go along."
The conversation ended right there.
Among the resolutions' in theRepuh
lican platfonn is e following:' (
Efghth That we are in favor of
such nn adjustment of our revenue
from imports as will encourage thn de
veloptuent of the industrial interests of
the whole country and secure to pur
workitigmen liberal wages, to our agrb
culturists remunerative prices, to our
mechanics and manufacturers an ad
equate reward for their skill, labor and
enterprise, and to the nation commer
cial prosperity in times of peace and
prospeiity in times of pence nnd indo
pel 1 den cm in times of war.
This is truly comprehensive. It
calls for everything for everybody. It
demands the highest price for products
when you Bell 'em, and the lowest pre
when you buy 'em. It promises high
prices to the farmer for It's wheut, and
low prices to the consumer for his
bread; high prices to the flock master
for his wool, and large profits to the
manufacturer for making the wool into
cloth, and low prices to the man who
wants a suit of clothes. What we
want, what the country is suffering for,
is the coming of the legislator who can
do all these things by tinkering at tho
statutes.' The platitudes out of which
platform literature ingeneral is created
were never better illustrated than. by
During the lirst nine months of the
present fiscal year, ending March 30,
1880, there was an increaso of over
$7,0"0,000 in the revenues of the gov
ernment, as compared with the corres
ponding period last year; and expends
tures for the first nine months of this
year weto over 16,000,000 less than
for the same period of last year, mak
ing a net gain of over 623,000,000. II
is just this kind of retrenchment which
is making the Administration so popu
lur with the people. Notwithstanding
all the efforts on the part of the lie
publican nt'afiag'rs and disappointed
ofliceneckers, President Cleveland is
winning the plaudits of tho people,' re
gafdlss of party.
The people of Toronto were beguiled
the other day into reading some sound
rolitical doctrine. The News of that,
city published Washington's farewell
address as a manifesto of Sir John
Macdonald, and the citizens absorbed
it with eager interest. An opposition
paper is preparing to revolutionize pub
lie sentlit ent by running the Sermon
on the Mount. '
A Thrillinj Expcricnre.
Dill Sayers, says tho Chico (Cal.)'
Chronicle, tho trusty stage diiver who
handles the ribbohs on tho line between
Chico and Colusa, had a thrilling trip
last Saturday.. He was about half way
between Su John and the Chico freq,
bridgn. The heavy rains had raised!
tho river considerably, perhaps as high'
as it had been during tho past Winter,
and (he water had backed up over, thn
wagon road. Sayers could' see tho
water approaching him' very rapidly,'
and it appeared that qotite levee had'
broken. Before ho could reach a high
spot of ground" the rushing torrent
reached him, coming up so high that
the horses had to swim.' The stage
rodo liko a canoe. . Sayers had, three .
passengers a woman and a little baby
and a colored man. Tho driver suc
ceeded m steering his swimming steeds
to a landing place, but in doing so one
of tho horses was badly injured by a'
barb-wire fence. Sayers and his paa.'
sengers had to camp several' hour's hi
fore they could venture upon their
journey again, While relating thn
affair, Sayers said ho never saw a rr,an
so badly' scarred as that colored passen
ger was. He said tho fellow refused"
point blank to hold the jvomanVb'aby
a few minutes in order that she might
rest, and held to tho stage liko grim
death. "S'pose I'so gwine to hold any
kid at din here time," he remarked.
"Why, dis am a 'casion when every
feller looks out fo' hisself." The driver
say the man turned "white as a sheet"
Boston Traveller: Sonato'r Piatt' of
Connecticut does' not seeni to have
much sympathy with that class of his'
brother Senators who affect to sneer at
the power and in'flucn je b the nowg
papers. In his argunterit for open ses
aioits of the Senate recently ho einphsv
sized the fact that no less than 10,000
of tho 14,000 papers' in this country'
had declared against the secret sessionT
While some Senators might claim not
to caro what tho press said, Senator
Piatt reminded the Senate that it rep
resented the sentiment of the pcopio
all the same.
The country will feel relieved of a
.load in hearing that the pedestal of the
Bartholdi statue is at last finished and
and paid for. Nothing remains except
to set liberty on Iter feet,' but that will,'
cost a trifle of $15,000.' As'NeW o?
is so destitute, and finds it such a
heartbreaking effort to raise a nickel'
for any public work, the committee
does not at present see where the
money is to com 3 from. It is to be
hoped that the rest of tho county will
rcscuo the notional reputation'' and put
up the needed $1 5,000
A Brookline- boy has experienced
these freitlo of court justice: He was
run over by a sleigh somo years ago,
and suing was favored with a verdict
of $1800 damages. This verdict was
set aside because of insanity in the jury .
box, and on m appeal he was awarded
$3500 damages. A third verdict has
now been' gtverf on another appeal'

Weigl, an Austrian composer, had
written a quartet whicii tho Emperor
Francis felt called upon to lead, only
that he played his part all through
without taking the slightest notice of
accidentals, until the composer, nearly
on his knees, advanced and most rever
entially said: "Would your Majesty

gracious V sharp" Temple .Bar.
General Sherman said in his Grant
memorial address that the South must
work out us own salvation, and that
the North ccutd not rule the South
any more than Great Britain could
rulo Ireland." If Tecumseh has known
this any length v' time, it is a
pity he did not tell his brother John,
as it would have saved the greatest .
Republican leader of Ohio from mak
ing a series of mistakes.
Squir. Whito died in Quinnebaug, '
Conn., last week. He was the second
leader of tho Dorr Reliellion, in Rhode
Island, in 1841. It is ancient history,
but it was enough of a rebellion to aU
tack the arsenal in Providence and run.
from the State troops at Chepachet. '
