Hlalne, .the American secretary of state,
nnd Dnroit Favn, until recently tho Italian
minister at WiwhliiKton. The correspond
once Iwtween theso two, which was broken
off by the baron's abandonment of bla
post under orders from the home govern
ment, practically embraced but two propo-sltlons-the
right of Italy to demand and
obtain punishment of tho lynchers, nnd to
secure indemnity for the families of the
victims. Mr. Blaine clearly displayed the
reasons why he could give no guarantee
or force the course of Justice, as adminis
tered by a state of the Union, out of the
ordinary channels prescribed by tho na
tional constitution nnd by the statutes of
the commonwealth directly nlTccted.

was accompanied -by expressions of regret
nnd sympathy, should have been followed

Aa before suggested, war Is among the
remotest of possibilities. If It should
break out, however, there nro on both
sides adviintftjreH and dlsadvnntKcs which
nearly balance mch other. Italy's chief
superiority lies In tho fact that she haa the
better navy. Tt'lul'lifilcrf ilearly 300 vessels
of all descriptions and ready for active ser
vice. Seven of these are huge armored
battle ships, ho built as to secure great de
velopment of iced and gun power. They
have a displacement of between 11,000 and
1 1,000 tons, and a tested speed of from fif
teen to eighteen knots per hour. Their

harbors and channels ou the American sea
board which she would be able to enter.
The Italian fleet is manned by 18,000 ma

hand, the United States navy comprises in

.lighting vessels of all classes and 3,000
The disproportion between the resources
of the two countries thus appears great;
but there are compensations to be takes
Into consideration which minimise theap
iwrent disparity. In the first place, a dec
laration of war Issued by Italy would
place that country in tho position of ag
gressor. The kingdom is deeply In debt,
fiad is considered by wimo llimncial ex
ports to bo bankrupt, as a result of the
vast expenses Incurred in keeping up the
triple alliance. Supposing that money
or credit could bo found to equip the fleet

vessels could curry but little more fuel

II Was Taught.
We were waiting for the down train to
Harlem bridge nt Bartow station. Among
those who had come over across country
on tho horse car was an Englishman a
very heavy, muscular fellow, who really
waa tne most ueau-ana-niive man that ever
lived so dead. He stood with his toes
turned In, and somebody remarked that
he waa too lacy to lift his feet up and turn
his toes out. His eyes were nearly closed,
and his big stodge hammer fists were deep
In his trousers pockets.
Thoro was in the party one of those curi
ous gentlemen known as practical Jokers,
because their Jokes are not practical, but
idiotic nnd wholly theoretical. It wasn't
long before this gentleman turned his at
tention to tho heavy Englishman.
"Watch mo now and I'll show you a
great Joke on tho duffer," he whispered as
be crept up behind the Englishman.
Then iio took n match from his pocket,
lit it softly, and placed it beneath tho frlntro
on the British trousers and set fire to them.
After which ho stood off and enjoyed It.
The trousers burned well. After a while
tho Englishman turned about and noticed
that tho practical Joker was amused. Then
ho looked at his trousers, nnd without
much excitement managed to put tho ilro
out. He then walked over to the ioker.
took him by the collar and kicked him Into
the ditch. When lie got out the English
kicked him back again. When the Joker
crawled out the second time and squeezed
the water out of his coat tails he remarked
with wounded prides
"I always heard those Englishmen never
could wee a -Joke. Never believed if before,
but I've got to believe It now. "New VoSrk

A HAKU WORKING ACTRESS.
Nay llrnoklyn, Whoae KfTiiit In "The
Pharisee" Command Attention.
May Brooklyn, who jumped Into promt
nenco tho other day through her work at
Kato Landou In "Tho Pharisee," Is a de
cidedly pretty actress, of medium height,
blonde nnd very English. Tho latter is
quite excusable, for sliu was born and, un
til soven years ago, lived In tho land of
rostt beef nnd tho queen. Her first ap
pearance on the stage was at the Comedy
theater in Loudon, nnd since tho curtain
rose thnt night she has played nil sorts of
parts, from pantomime, burlesque and
farce to those of tho legitimate drama.
Her little flat on Fifty-first street In New
York is as coxy a home as one often sees.
Its walls nnd the shelves of tho cabinets
standing nbotit are covered with leaves
from her history In articles quaint and
curious picked up during her extensive
travels. In tho pretty parlor n grate fire
always burns, If there Is any excuso what
ever for it.
Miss Brooklyn Is n close studont of the
drama, nnd fond of advancing somewhat
complicated theories on nearly everything
connected with It. She draws a strong
contrast between English and American
audiences. The former, she says, are much
quicker to appreciate thosedellcate touches
which a conscientious actor always puts In
his work, and are franker In their expres
sions of opinions of plays and players. She
says the greatest faults of the drama In
America come from the lack of skillful
stage management and good schools of in
struction. An actor, she says, is unlikely to set in
an entire career on the American stage as
thorough a knowledge of stagecraft as
might be obtained by a few years' expe
rience in European theaters. Actors and
critics nro alike slipshod in Ynnkceland.
Richard Mansfield is tho best American
stage manager sho has ever seen. Of his
merit she Is qualified to Judge, for sho was
his first leading woman on tho road.
There is only one subject besides theatri
cals on which it is posslblo to arouse Miss
Brooklyn's enthusiasm. That is rowing.
At ono tlmo she was acknowledged to be
the most expert oarswoman on the Thames.

Jackson is only sixteen years of ngo, and
despite the fact that ho made such u great
record the race was the first he ever en
tered. He weighs 185 pounds, nnd is about
B ft. 8 in. tall. If ho can do such good work
with little or no training nt no early an
age, great achievements may be expected
ot him when ho gets a little older nnd has
the benefit of proer preparation. He
should bo able under such conditions to

of 10 seconds, and make Owen and Cary
