" 'Don't want it paid!' ho insisted. 'If

tho panio of 'JIT, and it wan just so then.'
"I said, 'but then both tho people and
tho hank had asset. Now tho nsscts
aro used up. That panic was caused by
a long war, and by tho actual exhaustion
of tho national resource.' 1 failed to
convince him, of course."
And thi story of l'rofesior Denalow'
remind mo of tho method by which
Bcilhoimer got on the Tribune ton years
ago. "I brought a letter from my uncle,
Thud. Htovon," miid Hcilheiiner, "and
up to Greeloy'H cuhby-holo 1 went.
There ho sat with hi chair titled for

but ho knocked it away mul wroto on

try that with Htovon' letter to him which
lay on tho desk unopened. 1 opened it,
uud alowly alid it along on tho desk from
tho right, the signature uppermost. Ilo
took no notice. 1 cautiously pushed it a
littlo further. Horatoh,aerntch,Boriitch

next tinio ho pushed it away an inch or

whon ho reached for ink, 1 deliberately

Tlio Hones of Colnmbtn.
It will bo rcmcmltorod that about two
years ngo it was announcod that tho re
mains of Colnmbtis had been discovered
inn cathedral church of Santo Domingo,
whero it is certain thoy woro interred in
1510, and from which place it is lwlioved
thoy wero transferred to Havana in
17D5, upon tho occasion of the cession of
Hanto JDorningo to tho French. Tho
ovidenco in tho case was referred by tho
Hpaniah Government to tho Iioynl
Academy of History of Madrid,, which
has just mado its report, nverso to tho
alleged discovery; and tho ground for
tho decision aro clearly sot forth in a
monograph by tho celobrated publicist,
Hir Tnvvcrs Twiss. Tlio transference of
the remains in 1705 was made with tho
utmost caution and with great formality
and solemnity, so that it would rcqniro
overwhelming proof to conclndo that a
blunder had been made, and tho wrong
bodv had been carried. Now, thoaar
copLagns discovered in 1877 was, it is
true, inscriltcd with tho name ''Christo
vnl Colo.i," but ho is called "Huron"
which title tho great admiral did not
ltear, whilo his grandson of tho samo
name, who, it is known, was also buried
in this church, was, through his mother,
of noble lineage. Tlioro nro scvoral
other inscriptions on and within tho sar
cophagus, mostly abbreviated, and ono
(J).de la A. per) has lteen interpreted as
IJescubridor do la America, Primor
Almirontc. It is easy to show that tho
grandson of Columbus, in tho inscription
upon his body, would never havo spoken
of tho Now World as America a namo
which was never used in Spain until
1572, and which tlio family of Columbus
would havo Ijeen tho lost to adopt. Tho
letters of tho inscriptions, moreover, do
not belong to tho period at which tho
body was dojiosited there. On tho whole
tho reader c inot hut ngno with Hir
Trovers Twiss "that tho evidence at
present forthcoming is insufficient to
displace tho established lielief." Ho ap
parently docs not think it a part of his
dnty to do more than establish this nega
tive conclusion; for, although ho hints
at fraud, ho docs not make any direct
charge. Ho does, however, show a mo
tive on the part of the Bishop of Oropo,
tho voucher of tho discovery. "Tho re
port (of the Academy) snggests that tho
judgment of tho Bishop of Oropo may
have been nndnly biased by his uesiro to
secure the beatification df the great Ad
miral, respecting which a postulant has
already submitted his petition to tho
Holy See, and by his hopo that tho
shrine of Columbus in Santo Domingo
would become a pluco of pilgrimage for
