Several citizens joined in the pursuit
and when he was about opposite the
Congregational church H. F. Prael
grabbed and held him till an officer
arrived. Four revolvers were found
on him, three of which Mr. Spexarth
identified as his property. He was
locked up. When asked his name he
at first said it was Curtis, but after
waid said it was "John Smith." The
thieves seem to have a special grudge
against Spexarth, as this is the fourth
time an attempt has been made to get
some of his stock without the usual
formality of making a coin transfer.

THE POETLAUD MASS MEETING.
What is Eeportod to Have Been Said
and Bone There.
Poktland, Mar. 10. The public
meeting called by Mayor Gates was
held in the court house this after
noon. An immense throng filled the
building, the hallway and the yard.
The workingmen were present in
such force that they captured the
meeting and elected Sylvester Pen
noyer chairman. They then pro
ceeded to pass strong resolutions in
dorsing the board of trade, a resolu
tion dejrica'ig any and all lawless
acts, and called on the authorities to
rundown and punish all offenders.
They also endorsed the action of the
recent congress in boycotting the Or
egonian, pronounced the presence of
Chinese in the state an unmixed evil
and promised to use all lawful means
in their power to try to elevate white
labor above heathen.
At this juncture a portion of the
convention not liking the complexion
of affairs withdrew to the judge's of
fice to the number of forty and held
another meeting in which none of the
major meeting participated. There
were nearly 2,000 people in the main

HOW'S THIS FOR RED TAPE?
Not many weeks ago a clerk belong
ing to the navy department came out
of his room with a bundle of official
papers in his hand. He was about to
walk down stairs, because the elevat
or man had received instructions
from the state department not to al
low any of the navy department
clerks to ride, when he lost his grip
on the bundle and it fell down some
three stories. A messenger belong
ing to the state department quickly
seized the bundle and carried it in
and laid it upon the desk of one of
the chiefs of division. In the mean
time the clerk hurried down stairs
and walked into the room of the au
gust state official, and demanded the
bundle of papers.
He was crushed with the retort
that if he had any communication to
make it must be through the proper
channels, to wit: In writing to the
chief of his division, who would in
turn transmit it with the proper in
dorsement to the division chief of the
state department This was the be
ginning of the correspondence. One
would have thought the matter would
have ended there, but it didn't The
next three weeks were full of strife.
The correspondence grew and grew,
until near the end of the fourth week
it drew in the secretary of state and
the secretary of the navy. These two
gentlemen made short work of the
matter, and the papers were returned
with all due formality. Here were
four weeks wasted by worse than
foolish red tape. The papers were
the vouchers necessary in the settle
ment of some important pay accounts,
whioh were thuB delayed one month
by the action of this pompous old ass
in the sacred department of state.

The anti-coolie agitation is report
ed to be the leading topic among

Central and South America regard
ing the poor facilities as to mail com

It is said that people never know
nowadays when to expect mails at
Panama. Sometimes they are sent
from New York by a British tramp
steamer by way of Jamaica, while
others come via New Orleans, on the
littlo steamer Lucy Miller, which
makes a trip once a month. Very
frequently letters from New York
have been forty days en route to Pan
ama. Local papers at Panama, both
Spanish and English, express the
most contemptuous opinions of the
government of the United States, and
ono of them says that it scarcely
seems possible that so great and pro
gressive a nation should show so lit
tle regard to the commercial necessi
ties of two continents.
In a London special to the Now
York Herald of the loth, James
O'Kelly says: It is now conceded that
nothing can be done without a disso
lution of parliament An intelligent
member of the tory party says: "I
will vote for home rule, and so will
thirty other conservatives. We feel
that hostility towards Ireland was a
great blunder. The result will be
that it will close the house of lords
and disestablish the church, and we
want to save the union." These
views represent a growing feeling
among the reasonable element of the
tory party. The change in the tem-
Eer of the parties in the house toward
ome rule is due to the profonnd
change in the constitutional elements
of the house of commons itself. The
new parliament is essentially an as
sembly of workingmen, in the sense
that its members attend seriously to
Postmaster Pearson, of New York,
states that by the steamer Oregon,
which sailed from Liverpool on the
6th, and Queenstown on the 7th inst,
there were dispatched oya bags of
mail. Of these about 113 were closed
bags, containing 260 bags of letter
mail for the United States and Cana
da, the balance being male up of
about 470 bags of newspaper mail.
Of 66 heavy registered mails, esti
mated as containing about 2,400 let
ters and packages dispatched by the
Oregon, only a portion of the French,
Italian, Swedish and Bussian mail,
ninety-four pieces in all, was received,
the British and German registered
mail being all lost The British,
German, Swiss, Swedish, Belgian,
Portuguese, and Cape Town money
order lists, from London, Berlin,
Basle, Malmo, Antwerp, Lisbon and
Cape Town respectively, and French
money order advices, were all lost,
the Italian only being saved. Dupli

Ruin is simple enough. A violent
shock; a cruel turn of faith; a ca
tastrophe once for all. Be it so.
We submit, and all i3 over. You are
ruined; it is well; you are dead?
No; you are still living. On the
morrow you know it well. By what?
By the pricking of a pin. Yon
der passer-by omits to recognize
you; the tradesman's bills rain
down upon you ; and yonder is one
of your enemies, who is smiling.
Perhaps he is thinking of Arnal's
last pun; but it is all the same.
The pun would not have appeared to
him so inimitable but for your ruin.
You read your own sudden insignifi
cance even in the looks of indiffer
ence. Friends who had used to dine
at your table, become of opin
ion that three courses were an ex
travagance. Your faults are patent
to the eyes of everybody; ingrati
tude having nothing more to expect,
Eroclaims itself openly; every idiot
as foreseen your misfortune. The
malignant pull you to pieces; the
more malignant profess to pity.
And then come a hundred paltry de
tails. Nausea succeeds to grief.
You have been wont to indulge in
wine; you must now drink cider.
Two servants, too! Why, one will
be too many. It will be necessary
to discharge this one, and get rid of
that. Flowers in your garden are
superfluous; you will plant it with
potatoes. You used to make pres
ents of your fruits .to friends ; you
will send them henceforth to mar
ket. As to the poor, it will be ab
surd to think of giving anything to
them. Are you not poor yourself?
And then there is the painful ques
tion of dress. To have to refuse a
wife a new ribbon, what a torture !
To have to refuse one who has made
you a gift of her beauty a trifling
article ; to haggle over such matters
like a miser I Perhaps she will say
to you, "What, rob my garden of
its flowers, and now refuse one for
my bonnet I" Ah, me! to have to
condemn her to shabby dresses.
The family table is silent. You
fancy that those around it think
harshly of you. Beloved faces have
become clouded. This is what is
meant by failing fortunes. It is to
die day by day. To be struck down
is like the blast of the furnace; to
decay like this is the torture of the
