WHAT THE PRESS SAYS.
Comment of the readinjr Newspapers of
America aud Europe.
New York, March 16. -The Pout, com
menting editorially on the New Orleans
lynching, cites the case of Baldwin
against Franks, in which Baldwin was
arrested under a United States warrant,
charging him with conspiring with
others, ' 'to deprive certain Chinese aliens
of equal protection of the laws and equal
privileges and immunities under the
laws," and says :
"Under section 5519 of the United
States revised statutes, the court held
that although congress undoubtedly had
power to make this statute cover aliens,
it had not done so, Judges Harlan and
Field dissenting.) Baldwin, therefore,
was discharged. This is a clear and
serious defect in our federal legislation.
As regards the aliens killed in Or
leans by mob, the federal authorities
.ought to have the power o prosecute
and bring to justice all who participated
in the lynching, and until such prwer is
bestowed oh them, we shall every now
and then, when cases of this sort occur,
cut a sorry figure before the civilized
world. V"e get off easily touching the
Chinese outrages, because the Chinese
are patient, barbarous and far off, and
hold life cheap, but Italians are very
different people, and we shall have no
small difficulty in meeting the remon
strances doubtless now on the wav."
reversed his decision.
Had He Not Done So There Would Have
Been a Fall-Flelge Klot.
-. London, March 16. The action of a
magistrate in the town of Bowdley, in
Worcestershire, Saturday, had the effect
to arouse the inhabitants to a degree of
indignation and excitement nearly cul
minating in a riot. A young girl, 14
years of age, of respectable family, .was
arraigned on the charge of stealing a
copy of a magazine, value of which was
less than a shilling. After a cursory
hearing of the case the magistrate declar
ed the girl guilty, and sentenced her to
ten days' imprisonment at hard labor
and three months' confinement an a
reformatory. When the sentence was
published and the papers containing it
were distributed through the town this
morning, the people assembled in the
public square and held an indignation
meeting, at which speeches were made
conveying threats to lynch both the
mayor and the magistrate. The senti
ment expressed by the speakers met the
unanimous approval of their hearers,
and the crowd proceeded to the court
house, where the offending magistrate
was sitting, and advanced upon him
with menacing cries and gestures. As
the angry mob poured into the court
room the magistrate became thoroughly
alarmed and in words whose tremulous
utterance betokened his fright, reversed
his decision and ordered the immediate
release of the girl.
AFTER THE FARMER NOW.
Ex-Senator Ingalls Talks of Them In a
Boston, Mass?, March 16. Ex-Senator
Ingalls is in Boston tonight, a guest of
his brother-in-law, S. N. Dyer. He
comes east to visit the scenes of his boy
hood. He refused to state positively
that he had been tendered the Japanese
mission, or that he had declined it. He
spoke very enthusiastically of the farm
ers' alliance, showing in his words his
determination, if possible, to set him
self at rights with that powerful organi
zation. After announcing that its pur
poses and aims were of the most benefi
cial and patriotic nature, he said :
"In two years you will know some
thing about it. It is growing with grant
rapidity and will, by that time, perfect
Itself in the east and New -England. Its
chief danger is that it will draw more
largely from" the republican than from
the. democratic ranks. 'Reciprocity,'
said the senator, 'is regarded in the in
terior with favor, but there is no en
thusiasm. President Harrison will, I
think, be renominated and re-elected.' "
ITALIAN FRUIT CROP.
Orange and Lemon Trees Destroyed by
a Violent Gale of Wind.
New York, March 17. Some excite
ment, was caused in the foreign fruit
trade of this city by reports from Italy
to the effect that the orange and lemon
crop was destroyed by the recent storms.
President Contencin, of the Italian
chamber of commerce, who is at present
at Sorrenso, Italy, has written a letter
in which he says the damage to the
orange and lemon crops has been
enormous, and was caused by a gale of
wind which swept all the leaves off the
trees, leaving the oranges and lemons
without protection. The crop, he esti
mates, will be reduced about 75 percent.
A Talk With Gould.
New York, March 16. Jay Gould in
terviewed, says :
"There will he no monetary stringency
this spring. The movement of the cur
ency west will not, I think, be of suffic
ient magnitude to interfere materially
with the natural sequence of affairs."
Concerning the report of the contest at
the forthcoming Union Pacific election,
he said :
"I have only to say it would not sur
prise me to find a contest, because such
things happen frequently. . I don't know
that the Vanderbilt party holds 25,000
shares, nor have I reason to believe the
Boston holders have been increasing

About Displayed Goods.
There is an old English law, I am told,
whereby a "shopkeeper" can be com
pelled to take from bitt show window
and sell at the price marked any article
a customer points out. Several com
paratively recent arrivals in this coun
try have cited this to me, and kicked
with both feet because of refusals to
spoil a show window display by taking
a pair of shoes of a brand and size of
which there are hundreds in stock. As
far as I can learn the enactment was in
tended to prevent the manufacture of
samples for windows and the palming
off on persons attracted thereby of
"something equally as good."
However true it may be that the old
English common law regards the price
on an article in a window as a contract
between the store owner and any passer
by who tenders the money, there is no
such ordinance or law here. Often peo
ple insist on having something from the
window, and decline to accept its exact
duplicate. In that case, if the article is
an expeusive one, we strain the point
and get it down; but if it is something
low priced we give the customer the al
ternative of taking a duplicate or
nothing. Interview in St. Louis Globe
Democrat. Professor Lane's Famous Ability.
Among men of letters the most promi
nent ainbidf xter is probably Professor
George Martin Lane, pope professor of
Latin in Harvard. It is his habit to
stand facing the middle of the black
board. ' He logins to write a sentence
with his left hand, and runs along until
he reaches a point in line with his face.
Then he shifts the chalk from his left
hand to his right, and continues writing
until he - reaches the end of the black
board. When calling the roll the stu
dents know by the motion of the pro
fessor's hands just the mark he intends
He writes with his right hand until he
comes to a scholar who answers ."not
prepared." The pen is instantly changed
from the right to the left hand. Every
body knows that means a goose egg.
Professor Lane is noted for being one of
the finest Greek and Latin scholars in
America. His most famous contribution
to contemporaneous literature, however,,
is a little out of this line. He is the
author of that piscicultural epic, "The

There is no department of British mer
cantile industry which has developed,
with such marvelous rapidity as the pe

1859, when the total importations were
