FIRST: "REFERENDUM" CITY.
The city government of Haverhill,
Massachusetts, population 30,000, has
formally petitioned the legislature to
amend the city's charter so that it may
. apply the Swiss initiative and referen
dum system to local legislation. As
, Haverhill is the first city in this country
which is about to adopt the system, and
. as the republican and democratic parties
of Massachusetts have endorsed the
system as a promising method of reform
ing municipal government, the pioneer
experiment in this line will attract
. The Haverhill plan provides that all
ordinances passed by the council shall
be classified as "urgent" and "non
urgent." The urgent ordinances are
those referring to public health and
. peace and those which appropriate funds
in any department greater than the
average suni appropriated for the pre
ceding three years in that department.
Such measures do not fall within the
operation of the referendum and take
effect at once. ' '.
All other ordinances are "non-urgent,"
and become operative in thirty
days, unless, in the meantime, a peti
tion, signed by fifteen per cent, of
the voters of the city who voted
at the preceding annual election shall
be filed with the city clerk, asking for
the submission of the measure to a pop
ular vote for adoption or rejection. If
adopted it is thereafter a municipal law.
The Australian voting system is in nse
in Massachusetts, and, the title of the
proposed measure will be inserted in the
official ballot. The mayor cannot veto
a measure thus submitted, and he is
.thus shorn of an ancient prerogative.
XordJRoeebery felt compelled to ex-1
plain in a speech at Edinburg recently
that he had by no means abandoned
home rule for Ireland. He says in sub
stance that self-government for Ireland
is achievable even without an English,
'majority in parliament if the Irish party
-remain true to the liberal cause. But
the young earl does not make any prom
ise that home rule will be made a vital
question during his period of office.
Congressman Breckinridge should try
the insanity plea. It is not very manly
to plead that Miss Pollard is the case of
bis downfall.' He was both old and
smart enough to be censor over his own
.actions. The Tacoma Union 'says:
"When a man 50 years of age, a member
of congress, a silver-tongued orator and
the husband of a second wife, can suc
cessfully plead in self-justification that
a school girl seduced him, and for years
held him in illicit relations, what can
be done in the prosecution of young,
every-day fellows on charges of seduc
tion?" The paseion-play is represented in
Boston by marionettes. These figures
" are about the size and height of a 11-year-old
child. The words of ihe male
characters are all spoken by the operator,
and his daughter gives the women's
voices. It may be supposed that the
effect would be sacrilege, but a cultured
woman who has seen the performance,
but is not a linguist, said : "I did not
understand one word that I heard, but I
could not keep the tears back the voice
was so burdened with sorrow. .' I never
' saw anything more impressive. - To me
they were not figures, but my imagina
tion was alive with the realistic scene.
A more solemn hour and a half I hnve
. never passed.".
There are many reasons why Speaker
Crisp does not care to wear a senatorial
toga in place of the simple tunic of the
bouse. He believes himself, and his
colleagues believe- him to be the best
ringmaster of their number, and cer
tainly the clamorous session of Thurs
day, where he refused to entertain an
appeal, refused to state, his reason for
not doing so, refused to recognize the
rules requiring two -tellers, and even re
fusing to put a motion to adjourn, stamp
bim aa a bulldozer of the most approved
pattern. But outside of these services
there is a pecuniary difference of $5,000
a year on the wrong side of the ledger if
Crisp accepted the honor conferred upon
bim by Gov. Northern. And as he is
good for many years in the house at
$10,000 a year it would be foolish, from a
financial point of view to take the gift
of an unexpired term of senatorshlp.

in particular being that of a little
daughter of a Church of England minis
ter. The child was literally covered
from head to foot with a red and ex
ceedingly troublesome rash, from which
she had suffered for two or three years,
in spite of the best medical treatment
available. Her father was in great
distress about the case, and, at my
recommendation, at last began to ad
minister Ayer's Sarsaparilla, two bot

much to her relief and her father's
delight. I am sure, were he here to-day,

THE CONDUCTOR. OUTWITTED.
A Sheriff Who You!d Not Let a Railroad
Law Bother Him- .
.A ludicrous row over the separate
coach law occurred on' the Cincinnati
Southern road recently. ' Sheriff Kob
erts,.of Boone county, had a white and
colored prisoner, destined for the penitentiary-
in this city, and took them
both in the colored coach. The con
ductor, evidently ' not informed that
nurses and prisoners are exempt from
the provisions of the law, insisted that
the sheriff should- leave the colored car
and,take his white prisoner with him,
says the St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
The 6herifE refused to separate them,
but took both to the white car. The
conductor then told him he would have
to place his colored prisoner . in the
proper car, and the sheriff replied he
would not do' it, and if put off would
sue the' company. The row became
threatening, and the sheriff. , in order
to avoid trouble, went back into the
colored car when the train stopped,
and when again seen by the conductor
Igpf back into the White car. In this
way they quarreled over the whole
route to Georgetown, but the ' sheriff
landed his prisoners in the peniten
tiary securely locked together.
