JnDQETAYLOB,yesterday, very prop
erly refused the application of two
men to become citizens, on the ground
that they were unfit.by reason of their
ignorance of American institutions.
In general the privilege of American
citizenship is too lightly bestowed"
It is made so easy to be an American
naturalized citizen, that any one de
sirous of the honor should at least
make effort to prove himself partially
worthy of the dignity. If Judge Tay

And still Blaine's name is used to
conjure with at Chicago. The pres
ent situation is a dramatic one.
Blaine has always been a man of dra
matic act and consequence. "What
more dramatic climax to a career
packed with thrilling incident than
the refusal or an honor that men
struggle and delve, and scheme, and
agonize, and barter, and slave for,
and which might have como without
the putting out of his hand; and
while the fourth of the great conven

content, healthy, happy and at peace.
The Washington Journal (Ger
man) speaking of the proposed mar
riage of emperor Frederick's daughter
and Alexander Battenberg, says:
Aside "from political complications,
the proposed marriage also leads to
interesting complications in the fam
ily relations. Beatrice, youngest
daughter of queen Victoria, is married
to Alexander's brother, Henry Batten
berg. The German emperor's daugh
ter is a nieco of this couple, for her
mother, the empress, is a sister of
Beatrice. Alexander is therefore,
already, by" marriage, uncle of his
prospective bride, brother-in-law of
Beatrice, her aunt, and as liusband jot
the latter's niece, would becomo his

Thurston began his speech and al
most immediately made a statement
that Blame was denied its privilege

cheere. He then mentioned the can

STATE VS. M'aiNN.
In tho police court to-day Henry
McGinn withdrew his plea of not
guilty and substituted a plea of
guilty to assault and battery upon
ltev. Ezra Haskell. Judgo Dement
imposed a fine of ten dollars upon
tho defendant. In making his sen
tence the conrt took occasion to re
mark that as neither complainant nor
accused was in the habit of engaging
in street quarrels and were both gen
tlemen and that while the assault was
unjustified there had been considera
ble aggravation before tho affair took
place which would naturally tend to
create excitement in the defendant,
the court felt justified in imposing
tho smallest fine allowed by law.
CHARGED WITH E1IBEZZELMENT.
G.W.Emory, a young man who has
been employed as book keeper for tho
firm of Dayton & Wall, has been ar
rested charged with embezzelment.
The books of the firm have been par
tially exported and it is alleged that
so far Emery's shortage foots up
four thousand dollars. In tho police
conrt to-day Emery waived examina
tion and that he be placed under four
thousand dollars bonds to answer bo
fore the grand jury.
