Seattle, Dec. 28 A burglar who
broke Into the residence of Charles N.
Coopek the postmaster of West Seattle,
at 2 o'clock on Christmas morning, was
the means of developing the heroic
qualities of Miss Nina Cooper, the 10-year-old
daughter of the postmaster.
She struggled with the intruder and,
when he (reed himself, pursued him
until he gave up his plunder.
About 2 o'clock in the morning Mr.
Cooper was aroused by the presence of a
person by the bedside, and who was in
the act of removing his purse from be
neath the pillow. He no sooner realized
the presence of a burglar than he yelled :
"..urglarsl Thieves! Help I"
His daughter Nina, a young lady
about 19 vearsof ago, who slept in an
adjoining room, heurd his cries and
hastily arising, rusueu iu mo
she came into the hall she ran against
the burirlar. who. alarmed at his vic
tim's cries, was making good his escape.
An exciting scone tollow;d, The young
lady without fear of consequences,
rushed at the intruder. He had the
purse iu one hand, and avoiding her on
slaught as much as possible, made for
the head of the stairs. Miss Cooper, not
to be balked, grabbed on to bis coat tail
and held on for dear life. A desperate
struggle ensued, the burglar making
repealed efforts to reach the front door
and his fair captor maintaining her hold
on bis coat.
The continual shouts of the Cooper
aiiiily made the thief despeiate, and
tearing himself away with a final elfort
he shot through the door, went down
the front steps at one jump and dashed
down the street. Miss Cooper, though
but liehtlv attireil, was not to De oiu-
doneand followed him. A livelier race
was never run. Cries ot:
"Give back that money, you can't es
cape," came irom me gin s upa in oumi
tones, me neignoors were aronoeu, nuu
while some stuck their head out of the
windows in wonderment, others joined
in the race. Miss Cooper was gaining
foot by foot aud calling at short intervals
for the burglar to halt. Almost winded,
and alarmed at the increasing number
of his pursuers he stopped short, turned
and threw the heavy purse with great
fnrr-H at Miss Coooer's head. It struck
her in the lace and knocked her down,
and the burglar made good his escape.
Miss Cooper, picking up the purse, re
turned home. Not until she reached
the steps leading to the house did her
strength fail her, but then she sank
down in a faint, overcome by her exer

Paris, Dec. 28. An old man living in
Mercier and his ministers is an outrage
which would justify extreme action, the
disgraced statesmen controlling a ma
jority of 20 in the House of Commons at
The Lieutenant Governor's letter dis
missing the ministers accuses them of
careless and illegal official conduct, of
malversat.on and diversion of $176,000
from its legislative destination, ot pei
mitting the payment of personal debts
of Ministers out of that amount, and the
subsidizing of members of the House
supporting the Cabinet. Contradic
tions between the Ministers' explanat
ions oi the matter to the Governor, and
the evidence heard by the commission
are pointed out.
Upon receipt of this report, Mercier
demanded a copy of Judge Jette's let
ter, supposed to be dissentive from the
report, and permission to publish the
letter ot dismissal, doiii oi wnicn tne
governor refuses. Then follows Mr.
Mercier's final reply, in which he says :
"1 have to do, not with an impartial
head of the Executive, but with a polit
ical adversary subjected to the outside
influence of evil counsellors and bad
passions. You have knowingly and
wilfully violated the usages and consti
tutional laws ; you have had the audac
ity to do what our august sovereign,
Queen Victoria, would never have dared
to do in England without provoking a
revolution among the English people.
All good citizens must admit that there
is a limit to tyranny, and a man, though
he may have been a Prime Minister, is
not a slave.
"The report is that of two partisans,
from whom you have dragged an unjust,
an unfounded opinion, and it is alto
gether Informal and without legal value.
The allegations of the pretended pre
liminary report and contrary to the
proof. They contain gratuitous insults

great majority of the Legislature of this
Mr. Mercier charges the Governor
with personal and autocratic govern
ment, with having arrested the working
of the government, with having refused
lo call tho Legislature at the request
of its majority to transact pub
lic business, and with having
carried out one of the most odious con
spiracies ever entered into against the
constitutional liberties enjoyed by a
free people. He taunts tho governor
with a desire to place power iu the
hands of political friends by taking
abusive advantage of the lllnesa of
Judge Jette, against all the rules of
decency and professional etiquette, and
trampling under foot the dignity of
the crown. He charges him with leav
ing politics for the bench, where even
there he was a partisan.
Mr. Mercier t en discusses the consti
tutional side of the question, referring
to Lord Dulferin in the Pacific scandal,
who laid the matter before Parliament,
and he charges the governor with sup
porting tiie then guilty ministers, and
today, he says, you obey the will of the
federal prime minister, Mr. Abbott, who
was himself the distributer of this brib
ery money to the ministry. "Your con
duct," he continues, " puts our political
institutions in jeopardy. I will try to
undo your nefarious work with the
assistance of my colleagues and my poli
tical friends and will willingly expend
all that I possess to save our cherished

will shortly receive from Mr. Abbott,
your master, the price of your national
"treachery, and 1 Bhall Boon go before the
people and receive from its strong and
powerful hands a new mandate which
will enable me to resume in the Legisla
ture the position from which you have
driven me and to chase you constitu

The Liberals are terribly incensed at
Governor Angers and the slightest
spark would Buffice to kindle a popular
outbreak that the authorities would

organized by the Liberals throughout

dence of the Lieutenant Governor, to
protect it against any hostile demonstra
tion. The citizens of St. Roch and St.

It is represented in the Aouse ot t oni

these gentlemen and Mr. Mercier are
idolized by St. Roch's people.
How a Famous far slaii Critic Made a
New York, Dec. 20 A cable dispatch
from Paris announces the death of Mr.
Henry le La Pommeraye, the eminent
critic. He waa a rreuchiuan, well-
known in the world of dramatic criti
cism. He was also a lecturer ot mueu
note because of the tricks he employed.
For example, in August, 1870, he de
livered at the Creque an important lec
ture on the policy of Frederick II. It
was divided into two parts, the first
being entitled "Frederick at Home,"
and the second "Frederick Abroad."
Betwcon the two parts was to be sung
the "Marseillaise" with an orchestra
The lecturer had been Bpeaking for
about an hour, when a hoarse voice in
terrupted him with this brutal exclama
tion: And the Marseillaise." Without
appearing in the least disturbed, M. De
La Pommeraye gravely took out his
watch. "The Marseillaise," he said,
"is not to be sung until 10 minutes past
three, the interruption ia in advance a
full quarter of an hour," and he contin
ued his discourse.
The first part having been concluded
and the "MarseillaiBe" executed, M. De
La Pommeraye commenced the second
part somewhat in these terms : "After
having devoted all hia attention to the
interior policy, Frederick the Great
changed his objective and passed to the
exterior," and then with one of his moat
cunning smiles he added: "In this con
nection I cannot too strongly urge my
honorable interrupter of a few minutes
ago to do like Frederick."
This incident was a great success, and
no one suspected that it had been pre
pared in advance.

Both the children were boys. These
births provide for the direct succession
to the earldom of Clancarty and
several other titles which belong
to the holder of that earldom. It is
believed that this event will lead to a
complete reunion of the family

Countess Clancarty was the most

the marriage became public
left on a trip around the
world. His father, Lord C.ancarty, had
divers proceedings begun against the
young wife who was forced to return
to concert hall singing for a living. The
charge against her was adultery
but the charge was not sustained
though it was shown that she had
received many presents from the
young bohemians of London after her
marriage. The proceedings were brought
against the young lord's desire and
alter they came to naught he escaped
from his father and joined hia wife.

Howell appeared in Crowley township,

Hardly had this been announced

claiming he was an escaped horse thief
from the Mississippi jail. Howell
vehemently asserted that it waa a

possession of a large property. He was

which goes to Bhow that Curran is no
To the Editor of the Sun Sir: In
every slate, city and corner in the
Union, the efficiency of the New York
city police force is being lauded and
praised to such an extent that an in
dividual from the West thinks
he is as safe aa a church mouse
when he gets to New York city.
Yet there is one individual in New
York who places very little conlidence
in police protection. He came yester
day from the West and in crossing the
Jersey City Central railroad ferry was
accosted by a gentleman who would like
to know quickly the location of a tele
graph ollice. The stranger from the
West said ho did not know and that he
himself was looking for a telegraph
office. The New York gentleman said
there waa one which he knew eloBe to
the ferry landing, but he did not like
the operator. Yet, if he did not find
any better, he would use it. The fellow
from the West said that would be
good enough for him. Then ensued the
following dialogue by the citv gentleman
asking the Westerner:
"Jf'rc m where did you last telegraph ?"
"From Montesano, Wash."
"Very well, sir; 1 have been on the
train with you for some time. The 'old
man' sent me out. Ill said 1 would find
you on the train ; but I am a little slow
because 1 am extremely cautious, and
when vou land in New York come with
me, because you are in the proper
hands, and No. 78, Wash., will be taken
The fellow from the West saw there
waa some kind of a game on hand, and,
being a sort of Bport himself, wanted to
investigate it, and said that office would
exactly suit him ; but in regard to the
"old man" lie was not sure.
"Never mind; when you leave the
ferry follow me. You are in the proper
hands. Your stake is made if you will
just keep cool. The 'old man' is good.
He has pushed many men to the front
before, and you are all (. K."
The fellow from the West, having no
special place or purpose, for amusement
followed the "shark" to Broadway, and
after turning several streets and corners
went through an open door of a atone
building, which closed and locked be
hind him with a bang.
Then the fellow from the West began
to think there waa some fun on hand,
nnd ho was not "heeled." So he made
up hia mind that ho had to "run a
bluff." In the first room in the hallway
the "pilot" entered and introduced "7"
to the "old man." The "old man" said
he waa glad "78" was so punctual, and
he would at once proceed to business.
78" said he wanted none oi sucn uus-
ness, and if they did not lot him out
io would "wing and drill" the whole
The sharks, fearing they had another
Davis case on hand, and that "sawdust"
would not work, opened the door and
let tho man from the West go.
It may be asked why tho man from
the West did not toll the policeman
who was leaning against the lamp post
in front of the door and looking at the
pavoinent like a shoep tied to a manger,
that the first room to the right of the
present door was occupiod by "green
troods men," who were working the
The answer is very simple. The man
from the West had lost all confidence in
New York blue coata. Ho had been
for some time in the State of
Washington, getting many letters from
those "green goods" men. He had spent
time nnd money writing and tele
graphing to them and always mailed
a duplicate ol sucn communica
tions to the "Chief of Police, New
York city." Yet, after all his time,
trouble and money, the man in Wash
ington State never got even a postal
card from the New York police depart
ment. Therefore he has lost all confi
dence in the bluecoats. lie has now
