lielknap's manner is in marked contrast to
the time when he held a cabinet olliee. Then
he was haughty, arrogant and overbearing
in his inlercoiiiso with his underlings and
casual visitors. Now ho is plain and unas
suming, but yet asserting himself iu a manly
way when nocessary. tjinee ho escaiied im

stances, and that he was sacrificed li-auso he
could not develop his defense.
Matt I'arjieiiU-r was counsel for lie! knap.
Mr. C'oieinau, who was Carpenter's law part
ner at that time, is now practicing law in this
city. "Belknap was unquestionably an inno
cent man," said he, when asked aliout the
mattvr to-day, "but, Lord love you, he coidd
not prove it," he added.
"What was his real defense f
"Why, his wife got the money under the
Marsh contract. She was a dashing society
leader at that time, and mixed a great deal in
politics. She received the money, and Hel
knap knew 110 more about it than you."
"Could not this have Iteen shown;"
"In what way.' Belknap was one of these
jwculiar men who love their wives. He car
ried this peculiarity far. He loved his wife
madly. The knowledge of her share in the
business completely demoralized him. Then
if he had desired to shield himself ln-hind his
wife's petticoats he would have made himself
absolutely infamous. As a mere matter of
policy he could only choose to lie silent; but
as a matter of fact he would have died a hun
dred times before he would have exposed
Belknap is clearly living 'down his past mis
fortune. He has a well established legal prac
tice. He is the regular attorney here of the
Baltimore & Ohio railroad, and is also coun
sel for several western roads. Iu a case which
he argued this spring he re reived a fee of
10,000. Yet he lives a lonely life. He has
never separated from his wife legally, but
they lead separate lives.
Mi's. Belknap spends much of her time in
Europe, and when she is in this country re-
mams in rmiaaeipiua. sue conies occasion
ally to Washington. She is now in Euroiie,
and will not return to this country again un
til next fall. She was one of the handsomest
ladies who have ever graced Washington so
ciety. She has a tall, slim figure, a very easy
oarnage, and a face that was very attractive,
with its regular features, fresh color, and
bright, blue eyes. Her hair was a luxuriant
sunny brown. Her manners were simple and
gracious. She was one of the most popular
hostesses when the Belknaps dispensed a free
hospitality at their comfortable house.
Belknap frequently conies iu business con
tact with the men who voted for his impeach
ment. Sherman (who voted guilty), when
secretary of the treasury, made decisions in
Belknap's favor. Eaton was the only Demo
crat who voted not guilty, and he was influ
anced by his friend C'onkling. Of the twenty
live who voted for him, Allison, Anthony,
Cameron of Wisconsin, Ingall Jones of Ne
vada, Logan and McMillan are the only men
left in the senate.

IS BELKNAP A MARTY II ?
"General, here is something that doesnt
seem prejudicial to yourself." The interview
had not been really profitable. Gen. Belknap
nad, It is true, kmdly invited the reporter to
be seated in one of the big chairs in the
Oj-aud Pacific lobby, and had shown a cer
tain willingness to convei-se on conventional
topics, but about the probable star-route
Terdict or the Ottman case he had nothing to
say. Shortly the reporter remembered a re
print, and, knowing it to lie a not unkindly
allusion to certain momentous events in the
past history of the ex-secretary, handed it to
mm with the above remark. The general
took the paper, and quickly read it, and, as
he read, the color in his cheeks seemed to
deepen. This was what be scanned :
One of the familiar faces about Washington
is that of Gen. Belknap, former secretary of
war. I uere are a great many who know the
ex-secretary who believe that the story of the
causes wmcn lea to tne impeachment trial
nave never yet been told, and that lien.
Belknap has been a martyr to his chivalry to
woman. Matt Carpenter. Belknau's lawver.
if he had lived, would have some time told
the story. He told it to many in his lifetime.
and it was a statement highly honorable to
Gen. Belknap. Possibly the event is not far
enough removed from the passions of the
hour to permit of a deliberate judgment upon
tliA f.nta TV.A . -v;nu . 1 f .
Belknap from making use of the actual cir
cumstances in his own defense will prevent
him from ever aivine nublicitv to them. But
there are many men in A ashington who
know that Gen. Belknap was an innocent
and much-wronged man, and that he never
knew anything of the fact3 which caused his
political downfall and the movement for his
impeachment until they were first revealed to
him by members 01 the Blackburn-Clymer
Having read the extract he thrust the paper
back, and said, laconically, but with what
I ' feeling Belknap only knows: "That was yes
terday. I am thinking of to-morrow. I am
not thinking of yesterday. Life is too short
to live in the past."
" Newspaper Publishing In Japan.
The newspapers in the kingdom are now re
ported at 113 (besides 133. miscellaneous pub
lications), and the newspaper circulation is
said to have grown from 8,470.269 in 1874 to
83,419,529 m 1877. A list of the dozen load
ing journals is given, which issue from 2,900
to. 19,000 copies daily; one has 19,000 circula
tion, one has 43,000, one has 9,000, one has
0,000, one has 5,000, and the other seven have
less than 4,000 each; but if 300 publication
daya in the year are assured, the aggregate
circulation of these twelve is nearly :29,OUO,-
000 Xhe journal of largest circulation, part-
ry ninstrated, strikes the lowest leve' of sen-
nationalism, and borders on looseness of mor
als; the lwtrietive press laws takes no trouble
about indecencies, but apply only to expres
sions as to governmental affairs. The code
of 17$ does provide for a fine of 5 to 100
yen (the yen is equivalent to our trade dol
lar) for publication of anything offendinir
against good morals and decency, but these
terms aro rather vaguely defined in Japan,

IMays to '.Order, il
Wong Chin Foo, editor of the Chinese
American, saj's that a gentleman of means
upon entering a theatre in China, can, with
perfect propriety, order the production of any
play he may choose to select, upon precisely
the same plan that an American gentleman
would order his meal at a restaurant in
America. Nothing strange about that The
American gentleman may order what pleases
him in the American restaurant, but the
Lord and possibly the cook only know what
he will get ; and probably it is the same with
the Chinese gentleman at the theatre of his
0.ueer Habits of Composers.
Like Balzac, Wagner found costume an aid
to composition, and was said sometimes to re
ceive guests in the mediaeval garb he used to
don when writing "Siegfried" or the "Meis-
tersinger." He liked to vary the furniture of
lus apartments and cram them with curiosi
ties. Gluck composed best out of doors in a
meadow with his piano and a bottle of cham
pagne; Sacchini with his pet cafs around
him; Paesiello in bed; Sarti in a dark room;
Meyerbeer during a thunder-storm; Aubcr

UNMAKING A HERO.
Trie Career of JVan, the Newsboy.

New York Letter.
Nan, the newsboy, is a hero whose fame i3
as wide as the country. Eight years ago he
was selling newspapers iu the streets of this
cit3', like hundreds of other ragged, unkept,
nntutered lads. These active and vociferous
peddlers have their individual grounds for
business, as a rule, and Nan's lay aloug tho
river front. With water so handy, he natur
ally became a swimmer, and one day,
Boeing a girl fall off a wharf, he leaped after
her and saved her life. This was a great
thidg for the girl, but would have
been of no account for 2ian save for the fact
that it was described fully in the newspapers.
Nan was delighted to see his name in print,
and watched closely for an opportunity to get
it there again. Within a few days he saved
a second person, and scarcely dried his
clothes before reporting it at the newspaper
offices. During six months or so his deeds as
a life-saver were numerous so much so that
detractors questioned their genuineness, and
they found their way to publication only after
reporters had made thorough investigation.
But every case bore this scrutiny, and noth-
iae nearer to fraud was developed than
mere posstnimy that several riw-uoa noys
had, out of consideration for Nan's career,
voluntarily dropped into the water. A initial
was preHented to Nan by tho American Hu
mane society, ho was mado to figure in cheap
fiction, aud for a time he wait kept at the
head of a regular life-saving corps. Com pe
tition arose, however, and no ninny Uy
were constantly on the lookout that a body
could scarcely splash before it was yanked
out of the water. Uival iliiimaiiUi
of glory would appear iu very many
instances, and at length the
city editors of the daily joruals came to re
gard the whole subject as a nuisance. With
this way to fame closed, the boys gave up the
jierxuit of drowning persons. But Nan, like
most pioneers in any line of action, remained
a hero in jiopular estimation, and when,
on getting old enough, he applied for ati
appointment on the jiolice force, ho was
put into blue and brass without hesitation.
Almost as speedily he disgraced the
uniform. Success had turned his head
and rum completed his demoralization.
Several of bis drunken oll'cnses were
overlooked, but when his captain found him
patrolling zigzag from doorstep to curb, and
at length lying down to rest iu the gutler.'ho
was dismissed from the service, 'that did
not end his connection with the police, though
it changed his relationship to that of a fre
quent prisoner. I saw him yesterday. Ho
was raggeder than he liad ever lieeii when a
newsboy. Tho careless lad of a few years ago
had become a bummer. 11ns is what heroism
had done for Nan tho Newsboy. The news
papers made him, and rum unmade him.
AHeeneou Xew Vorh. ''haii.
New York Times.
A man with bis mouth full of n;l pie
gesticulated wildly on the floor of the stork
exchange the other afternoon when business
was at its height. A broker, who thought
that his gullet wav clogged with pie. ham
mered him on tho back, mid the general
howl in the immediate vicinity was gtopiicd
by his alarming actio. As soon as he could
clear his surcharged throat ho found his
voiiro and began selling right ami left in out
line of stock. He was taking his lunch with
one eye on the ticker and the other 011 Ins
pie, when some figures that were jotted
down on the tajie caused him to forget bin
check and dash out of the restaurant
like a madman. He was on the wrong
side of the market, and saw a chuiu-e
to cover. When ho had put
himself in a position to feel that ho was 011
the safe side of tho fence ho went back to tho
restaurant, ate another piece of pie, gave the
waiter a quarter, and told him to say his
prayers every night on going to lied and to
cover when he was long on a declining mar
ket. Then he bought a put, lighted a cigar,
and for half an hour blew big rings of smoke
up to the ceiling. He smiled at every one
who came in, said the market was going to
the dogs, rode home in a cab. and in theeven
ing informed his friends that he was 20,001!
better off than he was in the morning. When
times are exciting 011 tho exchange a broker
can hardly get his lunch. He has to take ad
vantage of a lull, and while he is out things
may start up again, fie must keep close
watch on the ticker, and if the figures go his
way or against him he has to abandon his
lunch in the middle of it to reap the benefit
or take measures to protect himself, 11s the
case may be. At best an active broker has '
but few minutes to spare while the exchange
is open. He can do little more than grab a
bite a run. A man who trades on eighths or
thereabouts has to take advantage of every
fluctuation. It is only those who trade 011
big rises aud heavy falls who can afford to
take their time at lunch.
Gladstone and the Mniall
Mr. Gladstone is fully aware of the influ
ence which a personal courtesy irorn the
piime minister exercises over the ordinary
British mmd, and he never loses a chance of
using that personal influence to win a friend
for his party. Not long ago a small West
minster schoolboy was staniling by the re
freshment bar in the house of commons, when
Mr. Gladstone walked up to him and asked
hiin his name. Having satisfied himself on
this momentous question, the priniier next
inquired as to his jiolitics. The small lxjy had
no politics; but he knew who his interlocutor
was, ana what his jioiitics was, so tie rejiiierl
promptly enough: "I'm a liberal, sir." "And
what progress do liberal ideas make in your
school?" continued the great man. "They are
flourishing rapidly, sir," replied tho diplo
matic boy, though in truth he had not the
least idea what "liberal ideas" were. On
hearing this Mr. Gladstone grew more benig
nant than before, and "Would you like my
autograph?" he suggested. On hearing that
his small acquaintance would like it very
much he took out a pencil and a piece of pa
per and wrote on the refreshment bar:
'Yours, with best wishes for your future,
William E. Gladstone." And from that day
to this the boy hs been a stanch Gladitouia.ii
A Cyclone Honse.
The Racket Reporter is informed that a
gentleman living at Granada. Miss., on the
"Big J" road, has built what is called a cy
clone house. The house consists of an exca
vation 12x13 feet, with a depth of eight feet
or in other words a cellar which is covered
over even with the surface of the earth, with
a flat shed of heavy timbers upon wliieh is
piled dirt. The means of ingress to the cy
clone houseis a 'trapdoor, and all the air neces
sary for thoso who desire to aoage an ap
proaching cyclone is obtained through a small
Another Side to the inestioii.
A few Chinamen in New York who do
washing have been smoking opium, and some
citizens of lighter color have got to like the
practice, and go to the places to smoko. A
great hullabaloo is made about it, and the
Chinamen are snatched ball-headed, though
no crime has lieen committed. Citizens can
get Chinamen drunk so that they commit
murder, and their houses are not closed. But
t is popular to kick the weak, and New York
is doing it. An educated Chinaman
writes to a New York pajier as follows,
which sets white penile to thinking: "1.
How many Chinese are in prison f . How
many beggai-s? :i. How many throw stones
and injure others who labor for bread as we
