A kkwseapbi: reporter the other
day giving an account of the death, of
an nnknown man who liad been run
over by the cars, closod the account
with the remark "he was only a
tramp." The remark may have been
trao in that particular case, but the
o.p.easion is being tossed about too
easily to be consistent with the hu
l.unc mid altruistic virtues. Many a
worthy object of kindness and charity
is turned away with the remark "he
i only a tramp.' 3iany young men
.ind old meu travel through the coun
try seeking work, paying their fares
and board bills as long as their scanty
store of money lasts, are refused the
NlightcKt favor, and tiie person who
turns iw wanderer from the door
consoles him or herself that "he was
iuh r. xramp.' Such people never
'-top to co;isider that there are hun
dreds and thousands of honest and
industrious mechanics who are driv
en by ibe hard times through the
country in search of work. Many a
one whom modest request for food or
shelter has- been refused by even
charitably inclined people, or whose
dtath has been made a jest by the
Ihougaiie. may have been the fa
hor of a family or the industrious
n of lion or able parents seeking to
lhul a living in towns or rural dis
t ids where t lie business depression
-. not felt po severely as at home.
"Only a'trampfsnch cold and cutting
phrases :nak usore tramps than all
the eonilHiuM influence of real va
grants and vagabonds. They drive
the honest child of want to despair,
..nd despair opens the gate on the
i ad to vagrancy and crime.
The world at large has no sympathy
for the tramp and this is as it should
bo. The professional bummer and
vagabond should not be recognized
by respectable ieoplc. To feed great
louts and loafers i; lo encourage them
iu their idle and dissolute wave.
But there is a vast difference between
the professional tramp and the honest
laborer iu nearch of work. The po
lice records of different cities show
that among the men who seek shelter
in police stations comparatively few
are professional vagabonds. Such
characters usually drift away into
milder climates on the approach of
winter. Thon many of the men who
ask alms are young men seeking
work who may have left their homes
supplied with a little money. Their
efforts have been unsuccessful, and
they are driven to dire necessity to
nk for a little assistance. Such men
should be treated kindly for the sake
of our common humanity.
Mk. GnonGK Augustus Sala, an
eminent English journalist, wants to
form an association for the protection
of the English language. He thinks
the slang that has crept, and is creep
ing into the language, is spoiling it.
He thinks the phrases coined on tho
street arc a disgrace to tho good old
"Well, there is a good deal to be said
oa Mr. Sala's side of the question.
But there is considerable to say on
the other side. Slang never gets in
to the dictionary. It rarely gets into
any standard literary work. Thon, loo,
slang is decidedly expressive. It un
doubtedly voices the sentiment of
the day belter than any of the old
phrases. It was necessary io coin
something to meet the want. IE the
linguists didn't coin what was needed
it was only right that the slanguists
should do soraothing.
The slanguists are not very choice
in their selections and inventions, it
is true, but they did their best. If
tho linguists would touo down and
improve the slang in existence, pos
sibly some capital words could be
produced as a permanent addition to
the language. Let Mr. Sala form a
combination of tho linguist and slang
uists aud get out a revised edition of
Zxtm Montgomery, of California,
the newly appointed attorney gener
al's assistant, pleasantly refers to tho
public schools of our country as
"hotbeds of vice and crime and nur
series of prostitution." A rascal was
turned out to make room for this ex
cellent exponent of American ideas

that ridiculous Central America.

Tir.LARD'5 BLI5D rooL.
Henry Villard, it is to be feared, put
the first blind pool on the market of New
York, when he raised eight millions of
dollars without telling what he meant to
do with it. He did apply his money to
baying Northern Pacific stock, but the
curse of any business community which
would give money in that way naturally
fell upon the banks at lost. It was a bus
iness crime to lond Mr. Villard eight
millions of dollars without responsible
securities. It was a piece of speculative
superstition to take money oat of banks
and trust companies and give it to Vil
lard on the score of his previous good
character. Business demands that the
propositions presented to it be intelli
gently considered. Therefore, when I see
people who profited by Villard's opera
tions exclaiming against Ferdinand
"Ward, I say in my mind, like Nathan to
King David: "Thou art the man." When
Villard obtained that eight million dol
lars and bought the controlling stock in
a great railroad by an act of congress,
for it was nothing less, one of the New
York bears said to me: "That fellow Vil
lard is a damned adventurer.' I thought
the epithet was harsh and said so. " I
don't care," said tho bear broker, "any
man who can get eight million dollars
by issuing a circular, and refusing to tell
what he is going to do with the money
is an adventurer. There is nothing like
business iu the proposition, and it only
shows," said he, ' how rotten this street
is. .bight million dollars," said he. "tak
en from the deposits of these banks,
from the assets of dead men, from bal
ances of all sorts, to apply that money
to something obscure or absolutely un
known! The fellow is an adventurer,
and nowhere but in New York could he
play a game like that." In tho sequel
this bear operator had more sense than
I had anticipated. Ferdinand "Ward was
the pupil ot ilenry Villard. Air. Ward
merely said: " I am the partner of Gen
eral Grant and of his sons, aud of Mr.
Fish, of the Marino Bank, and I have
got a private set of enterprises on which
1 can afford to pay 30 to I0 per cent, a
year, but I won't tell." Mr. Villard's example-
had gone around the town and
Mr. Fish's bank was dragged down and
General Grant's old age humiliated.
' To have as much work to do a one
can do, and a little more,' has been giv-"
eaas the best recipe for cheerfulness
and contentment; but while readily con
curring in the first part of tho senti
ment, we cannot but suggest that it inay
be, perchance, that very "little more"
which is at tho root of half the ill-health
pale faces and fractious nerves of the
present day. It is that last drop in tho
already full cup, tliat last straw on tne
alreadv well-laden back, which is too
much just one degree too much for the
sorely-pressed men anu women, wuo are
fighting in the fight of life, and it is that
overplus from which they ought if they
can to abstain. They will not Fee it; they
will not do it. Each allows that in the
case of another that other's duty is plain
enough; but for him or herself and then
follow excuses, arguments and obstinacy
not to bo shaken. Evervbody, it would
seem, must attempt something over and
above what ho or she can possibly ac
complish; everybody must drain a little
more out of their worrying, feverish
urains man can oo yieiueu cuuiiBieuuy
withonly wholesale effort aud energy;
everybody must fly at game beyond their
reach, if only it be within their sight.
