"Vanderbilt being interviewed re
cently, said: "I don't believe there
will'bepojsnumy railroads built tbw
year as there Lave been. A law must
be passed by whiob, i I am president
of a railroad, I cannot be president of
a construction compauj organized to
build. If eyerybody in the country
sticks by the-country, everything will
be well enough. Those in thecoun
try might better work for than
against it Politics change the views
of the people. Some think that the
country is going to the dogs and
others to the contrary."
"What are your politics?"
"I have none at alL I vote on one
side as often , as on .the other. J
really dqa't think that politics amount
to anything. I-used tole anold line
Whig. The balance of power in this
country is with the conservative ele
ment I vote for men rather tbft,n tor
a party, except when a national -question
comes up. Now, there is a good
deal more duty on some things than
there ought to be steel, for instance.
I believe in supporting our industries.
We are getting to a point where our
home industries can compare with
the production of other countries.
The idea of $28 a ton for steel is per
fectly outrageous. It is. hard for mo
to say it, but in England or France
you can get a guarantee that
the articles that jou purchase'
are as good as the man-i
afacturera ever made. Here, if au
article goes down in price it is adult-
erated. This must not lead vou to
think that I am opposed to American i
manufactures. 1 am in favor of
Amenca and everything American.
Does the duty on pictures protect
any one .here? The masters are on
the other side. The duty used to be
ten per cent, and American students
were admitted to European schools
and studios. Then the duty was put
up to thirty per cent If I had a
studio I would not, after this law, ad
mit American students. The duty
has stopped people from buj ing pict
ures. It has stopped me." Who is
going to.pay thirty per cent? There i

The position of the governor was
certainly a very unpleasant one and .
beset with-many; trials and difficulties. ,
Nearly every-man of any prominence,
black or white, wanted an office, and
it he failed to get it, concluded, of
course, that the governor had "gone
back on him." The position of justice
of the peace was peculiarly attractive
to the colored brother. When ap
pointed he,, did everything in his
power to surround it with that divin
ity that doth hedge a king. The first
thing he did was to hunt up an old
black coat of .the forked-tailed vint
age and a pair of ponderous specta
cles. He seemed to consider these
the paraphernalia of official life. It
made no difference to him that the
coat would .have better fitted David
Davis, or that the glass in Jiis iron
clad spectacles was the ordinary win
dow glass. They invested him with a
very portentious look, and were very
effective in the examination of a wit- now it takes a chemist and a labora

sioner Raymond, of that city, recent
ly ha J analyses made of samples of
a candy Known as "rock and rye
drops," whicli has been largely sold
of late, especially to children. The
analysis-showed that the confection
was flavored with fusel oil, enough
being contained in two pounds to
make a fatal dose. The New York
Tribune subsequently interviewed
several candy manufacturers from
whom it ascertained that terra alba,
glucose, fusel oil, butyric acid and
alcoholic liquors are used in making
"and flavoring. candy. One of these
.manufacturers said: The most dan
gerous coloring matter used in cheap
-xjandiss is probably the yellow. For
.that chrome is used, which is simply
'chromate of lead, and is poisonous.
We use for yellow a vegetable sub
stance which we, import from Ger
roeny. It is said to be .made of car
'ro'ts. For red, cochineal is used, and
"for brown burnt umber, both of whioh
afre harmless. In fact, the only dan
gerous color is yellow. The, flavor
ing extracts which the manufactur
es of oheap candies use. are, I think,
'fptto be deleterious. Banana, pine
apple, strawberry and raspberry flav
oring of the oheaper kinds contains
'fusel oil and butyxio aoid. This is
also true of the oheap flavoring ex

The Norwegian parliament is sin
gularly composed. One branch of it
consisting of eighty-five members
selected by a popular rote, has the
nomination of twenty-nine members
who form the upper chamber. Aa a
consequence the two bouses are al
ways uj harmony. There can ke no
opposition except from the "royal
palace. The question has now arisen
whether the king's veto is merely a
suspensory, or absolute, whether he
can actually stop legislation, or only
delay it The University of Christian a,
sustained by a large majority of the
benqh-and bar. of the. kingdom, hsj
through its faculty unanimously de
clared that the royal veto is absolute.
Against this dictum the people have
determinedly arrayed themselves, a d
secured the vantage' ground in tne
storthing. "No absolute veto" iasi
for some years been the popular as
sertion on which elections have been
contested and carried. Recently the '
storthing passed a bill compelling
the ministers to sit in the house, and
therefore become responsible to that
body. '' The rote stood ninety-two

The country is full of "Liberal
leagues," delegates from which have
met in convention. The first resolu- '
tion, adoptei with a disscenting no, '
waa in these werds: "The object of
the leagues is on the basis of the con
stitution and of tho union with
Sweden, to unite Liberal leagues of
the country toward the realization of
self-government in the state as well
as in the commune." What will the
king do about it? He is represented
as personally popular, but under bad
guidance. If he yields, he may save
himself under the provisions of
PPular constitution, to which a num.-
