The congressional convention which
meets at Lincoln Thursday of this week
to name the next congressman from this
district, is attracting much attention
Judge Chapman is mentioned generally
and favorably throughout the southern
portion of the district, but we understand
that it is yet doubtful whether lie permits
his name to be used in the convention a
it is a position he has not sougnt at thi:
time. The judge was in favor of Hon
S. B. Pound, of Lancaster, until the Lin
coln Primaries made the mistake of the
campaign. Just what the convention at
Lincoln maybring forth is very uncertain.
Allen G. Tjiurman's efforts as i
sprightly campaigner has resulted some
what disastrously to himself and party at
large. Tlv? little journey from Ohio to
New York so used the old Roman up
that he failed when he endeavored to
speak to the thousands who had assem
bled to do him honor. From the plat
form he was borne to his bed. ivns at
tended all night by physicians and the
next day hurried to his home where in
peace he could pass his last few days on
earth. No better exemplifications of
his case was ever had than in the follow
ing lines, "Pity the sorrows of a poor old
man, whose trembling limbs have borne
him to our door." All idea of further
speech-making on his part has been aban
doned and the old man's sorrows will be
pitied and lie will kindly be permitted
to stay at home. Arizona Citizen.
GENERAL HARRISON TO THE

If you eould forget Ireland, if you could
be unmoved by her ministry, untouched

and to American institutions, will not
falter in this "reat civil contest, which
your spokesman has so fittiugly describ
ed. Who, if nut Irish-Americans, versed
in the sid history of the commercial ruin
of the island they love, should be in
structed in the beneficient influence of n
protective tariff ? Long and continued
cheering. Who, if not Irish-Americans,
should be able to appreciate the friendly
influences of the protective system upon
their individual and upon their home
lives ? Applause. Which of you has
not realized that not the lot of man only,
but the lot of woman has been made eas
ier aud softer under its influence f Ap
plause and "Hear!" "Hear!" and "That's
whats the matter." Contrast the Amer
ican mother and wife, burdened only
with the cares of motherhood and of the
household, with the condition of women
in many of the countries of the Old
World where she is loaded also with the
drudgery of toil in the field. Applause.
I know that none more than Irishmen
who arc so characterized by their defer
ence for women and whose women have
so finely illustrated that which is pure in
female character, will value this illustra
tion of the good effects of our American
system upon the home life. Long con
tinued applause. There are nations
across the ocean who are hungry for the
American market. Cries of "You bet
they arc," aud "That's right," and "They
won't get them." They are waiting with
eager expectation for the adoption of a
frea trade policy by the United States.
Cries of "That will never happen." The
English manufacturer is persuaded that

it will be impossible to persuade the Am

believe that social order, that national
prosperity, are bound up in the preserva
tion of our existing policy. Loud cheers
and cries of "You are right." I do not
believe that a republic can live and pros
per, whose wage-earners do not earn
enough to make life comfortable, who
do not have some upward avenues of
hope open before them. When the wage
earners of a land lose hope, when the
star goes out, social order is imppossiblc,
and after that anarchy or the czar.

CHINA'S SEDAN CHAIR.
t.-saiit ami Agreeable Vehicle Worti
fur the Iiearers.
'i 1m. elegant ami diguiGed and agreeable
-.ob .; of China belongs peculiarly to tlio
t-outli. It is the sedan chair. The comfort
of this conveyance has been brought as nearly
to perfection as circumstances will allow.
In cities whera many wealthy men reside se
dans are often seen which are real works of
art. The scat is luxuriously cushioned and
padded, lined with blue or crimson satin.
Comfortable elbow rests, a shelf behind for a
largo package, and another in front for pipe
or book, or small parcel; windows of glass,
with silk blinds, and the exterior of blue
cloth, with embroidered ornaments and tas
sels banging from the top all around the
four Bides. What more elegant and commo
dious vehicle can you wish for than that?
Unfortunately these are not for public hire.
The best chairs for hire are fairly comfort
able, but it is well to carry a cushion for too
seat and back. Missionaries generally use
their light traveling mattresses for this pur-post-.
Occasionally the chair bearer will
complain of the slight additional weight, but
not often. A small amount of baggage is
also allowed in the chair. How the poor fel
lows manage to carry the chair and its occu
pant twenty miles it is hard to imagine. Tho
chair- itself often weighs as much as forty
pounds, and cni may presume that the aver
age weight of adult men is 140 pounds, while
the latter is doubtless very frequently ex
ceeded. Yet with the pressure of 100 pounds
upon the shoulders of each man they strug
gle more ur Jess good humoredly for a whole
From the better class of sod.B there is a de
scending scale to the common bamboo n we.
.aiu a "mountain chair. " It consists of
only two poles, with a seat between them, and
a wooden stirf ap top the fet. I weighed one
of these machines, and found it only sixteen
Iounds. To keep off the sun and the wet a
piece of oilcloth is spread over a frame of
four split sticks. When the weather is fine
and mild this is a luxurious mode of convey
tine in a country where few persons are in a
hurry, and twenty inUes in a day is reckoned
rapid traveling. In cold, WcJ and windy
weather the "mountain chair" may bo de
scribed mildly as an offense.
Tfc-J number of bearers of any one chair is
regulated by law. The emperor alone is al
lowed sixteen; mandarins of the highest
rank, eight: lesser dignitaries, f and a
tfivilMn, two or three, according as ibe
weight of his "honorable body" may render

OLD CURIOSITY SHOP.
THE CHICAGOAN'S PASSION FOR COL
LECTING ANCIENT WEAPONS.
Caterlog to the Growing Taitte for the
Curious A IIlcli and Uare Acquisition.
Hellca from Mexico Imilutlon of Old
"Well, said a man, stopping in front of a
South Side store aud giving his voice a ris
ing inflection, "this strikes me as funny I The
idc-a of starting a plaeo of this kind in a
brand new town like Chicago is lold, to say
the least. But 'Old Curiosity Shop' looks
good on a sign. Lwt's walk in and nee."
And ho and his friend did so. They found
the spacious store filled with all sorts of
curious things, relics and wea(oiis, idoU and
implements of quaint design and uncient
make. After pottering around and seeing
their fill tliey both lecumo tho owners of
several Indian relies and departed satisfied.
"This is tho first and only curiosity shop
in the west," said tho owner. "I've only just
branched out in this store, for hitherto,
traveling six months out of twelve all along,
I didn't think it worth while keeping shop,
n3 1 have readily disposed of my goods to
private collectors and museums. But a taste
for curios is springing up in Chicago, and I
guess it will pay to cater to it in this formal
There are in his collection many specimens
of Indian weapons, tools, etc. A rieli and rare
acquisition of the war was the collection of
Professor Hon, of Orleans, Ind., which it had
token sixty years to get together and which
was especially complete in Indian relics of
all kinds. The shopkeeper, as he explained,
spends a good jwrtion of every year in Old
Mexico, New Mexico, Arizona, Oregon and
other places in which a still hunt for ro
markable or ancient things is likely to prove
a benefit. In Old Mexico he picks up old
weapons especially, not only those of Aztec
make, a good many of them antedating the
Spanish conquest by centuries, but also arms
coming from those very couquerois under
Cortez. These latter, however, are hard to
get, as they are for the most port in the pos
session of descendants of the very men who
bore them first in battle, 870 years ago, and
who do not like to part for any money with
such heirlooms; or else they are in privateor
public collections or museums.
RELICS FROM MEXICO.
Still, now and then a fine piece of old armor
is gotten by the wily Chicago trader, and in
duo time, ef course, finds its way into Ameri
can collections. Weapons of bone, daggers,
sjiears and lances, all of Aztec make, copper
swords aud shields, likewise very old, are
things which are also still to be found by
diligent search in Mexico. The enormous ax
heads of basalt and ground down in a very
slow and fiowerf ul manner to the right shape
are interesting things, as are also the mor
tars and pestles made of lava from the neigh
borhood of Orizaba. Puobla relics, taken
from the Indian tribe of that name in New
Mexico, form another branch of the collec
tion. Grinning, ugly idols, hollow and with
gaping mouths, made of a fine grained sand
stone of brilliant hue, vessels of all sorts, hol
lowed out in the most painstaking manner
aud of graceful shape, are thereby the score.
The passion for ancient weapons has seized
tho soul of the select few out west at last. It
took a long time till the fever reached here,
but it has now begun its devastating course
in earnest. Owners of fine homes are already
beginning to fret about where they shall ob
tain their supply of these ancient tools of
warfare. But hand in hand with the grow
ing desire there is the rise of home industry.
Already thero is one man in town who has
begun to manufacture "ancient" weapons on
a large scale. Therefore, when you see a
rusty mailed shirt said to bo 500 years old,
an armor spotted all over with verdigris and
alleged to have come down from a knightly
old crusader, beware. The chances are that
neither the one nor the other is what it pre
tends to be. The imitation of these old
weapons has become, all over the world, a
regular branch of industry. Persia, Turkey
and tho Caucasus, however, are the countries
par excellence where this counterfeiting is
done with greatest perfection and most
THE GENUINE ARTICLES.
It is refreshing, therefore, when one sees
some really genuine oriental weapons from
the brave days of old. In Chicago there is at
least one place where one may do so. That
is the "den" of Dudley Winston, the son of
F. II. Winston, who accompanied his father
on his mission to Persia, and who brought
homo from Constantinople, Tiflis, Trebizonde
and Teheran a small but very choice collec
tion of rare old weapons. There are cime
tars inlaid with gold and silver, Damascus
blades of finest temper and most delicate
workmanship. There are yataghans of
rough make and of exquisite make, the
tracery on the blades being often the finest of
alL There ara old guns, eight feet long and
over, whose stock shows arabesques in
mother of pearl, silver aud gold. There are
khandjars from Georgia and from Circassia,
straight daggers, which are worn stuck in
the girdle in front, handy to seize, and a most
dreadful weapon in a close encounter, in size
and length just like the short Roman sword
of the days of Augustus, only more pointed.
The finest and most complete collection of
ancient weapons in America is, however,
that of Morosini, Jay Gould's late partner
and the father-in-law of the former coach
man, Schilling, otherwise Ilulskarap. Mr.
Moroi.ioi's beautiful place on the Hudson is
literally full of arms and armor frpm every
period, beginning with tho Eton a age and
coming down to the Nineteenth century. He
is said to have spent nearly a half million of
dollars in the course of the last twenty yeai-3
to make his collection what it is. He is also
probably the rapsf pxpert connoisseur in an
cient weapons in this country. Another in
defatigable collector in this line is' ft. M.
Moss, head of a great engraving firm in New
York. ery large dealer In curios in the
world has a standing srder to send on any
thing specially fine and eld in the shapp of
weapons. Mr. Moss has spent several bun--dri
thousand dollars in pursuit of his hobby,
and his collection is fctilj growing every day.
