A Ballad of Jimmy and Billy.
Jimmy and Billy, though both in the ooat,
O'er the angry billows bepe safely to float;
For Billy will pull the protection oar.
Through tbe troubled water that round them
And Jimmy wiil steer for the open tea
With his paddle called Reciprocity.
Bays Jimmy to billy, "Pull close along
Where the Free Trade current flows deep and
On the edge of the democratic tide;
In republican naters we cannot ride.
Ani I'll steer us through to the open sea
With my paddle called Reciprocity."
Alas, for tbe pilot and the oarsman too,
With all tbeir schemes they could not pull
T te prow struck tbe Independent rock
T le rotten old hulk went down in the shock.
And nil that was left to float on the sea
Was the paddle called Reciprocity,
Give heed to the moral adorning: this tale;
Tou will always And it true:
"You can not patch up a pair of old pants,
And make then as good as new."
Ob Gad, for the roar of battle,
For the bayonet's dancing shine
And the long and merry rattle
Of musketry down the line.
And oh. for the cannons' crushing
From the battery on the hill.
And tbe swords of the horsemen flashing
As they charge with a right gcod will!
Away, like a wlrlwlnd driven,
While a thrill through the sound earth runs;
Away In tbe smoke, blaze riven,
'Till we fall on tbe men at tbe guns.
And oh, for the broadsides shaking
The grim old hulls in the bay.
And the boat of the orderly making
Through the tempest Us gallant wayl
We are smitten with psychiq languor,
Dry rot is benumbing our minds.
There is in us no love nor anger.
And our hearts are the hearts of binds.
We are slaves of lucre and fashion,
It is custom our age that shapes
Till we wed without heart or paseion
And are getting a race of apes.
Our women are all for money.
Each dupe of us buys his wife;
Their boso'as are wax without honey,
They are marble, unloved to life.
There is freedom of speech no longer
And scaroely freedom of thought,
For the man with the vault is stronger
Than the soul with an errand fraught.
The rich to the rich are brothers
And the poor to the poor alone,
And the heart of the hero smothers
Like an acorn beneath a stone.
Then eh, for the trumpets' clamor
And the roll of the answering drums,
And oh, for the fire and glamour
With the scng of tbe fife that comes I
For I ween that the first deep tb under
Of the guns like a spell would fall,
And the smoke ere it ctpt asunder,
Would enlarge and revive us all.
For the miser would give bis treasure
Which he stifles his soul to cave.
And the heiress would leap with pleasure
At tbe deeds of her lathers slave 1
They are s lling ribbons, our heroes,
Our captains are selling tea.
Our co'.onels are merchant' zeros.
Our admirals far from Boa.
And its oh, for the muskets' rattle,
And the file's entrancing call.

Five hundred boys recently struck in
the Whitail, Tatuia & Co. glass works
because the firm employed fourteen
Russian Jews. The strikers demanded
the discharge of the Jews. The firm
shut down the works, throwing out of
employment 3,000 men and boys. The
boy strikers held a meeting in the rink
and made hot speeches. They noticed
in the crowd near the open doors a

Then they started on another raid. This
time they carried hickory clubs. The
procession created a sensation as it
moved through the streets with flamiDg
torchlights, pans of red fire and roman
candles. They had been joined by hun
dreds of sympathizers and all the hood
lum element of the town. Nearly a
thousand strong, the procession visited
very house in town in which a Hebrew
was thought to be hylden. ' Notices
were left commanding every Hebrew to
leave town. Whenever a Hebrew was
encountered he was beaten nearly into
insensibility and ordered to clear out at
once and to tell all the members of his
race to get out as quickly as possible or
they would be killed and their homes
There was an exodus of Hebrews,
some leaving by train, others by wagous,

sight to see the procession of terror

One of the Oldest and Large! Homes as
Wall Street A talent.
New Yokk. Sept. 23. S. V. White
& Co., operators in stocks and grain.
one of the oldest and largest houses on
Wall street, have assigned. The first
indication of the failure was when On
tario and Westers opened at 221, d
immediately declined to 20. St. Paul
opened at 75 and declined to 75. Dela
ware and Lackawanna opened at 144,
and declined to 1 44. Then followed a
general depression, and right on the
head of it came the announcement of S.
V. White & Co.'s assignment. The
reason assigned for the failure was that
the firm had been caught in the corn
corner. It was declared that their in
terest in stocks was very limited. A
story is also afloat that White has been
carrying a heavy load of paper for
another firm. As a matter of fact it is
known that S. V. White & Co. were
long of 11.000,000 bushels of Sept. corn.
Chicago manipulators have pulled the
price of that option down from Objc to
5Hc in two days, and the firm was un
able to stand the heavy loss.
Mr. Edmond Clarence Stedman made
the following statement to the
press: "The trouble is entirely due to
the great decline in corn. For three
months past the firm has been long of
September corn. Good weather has
produced heavy crops, the price went
down and the firm went down with it.
No other firm will be affected. I can
not yet say what the liabilities are, nor
who the assignee will be." The firm's
failure was announced in Chicago al
most simultaneously with the announce
ment here. The Chicago branch con
sists of S. V. White, F. W. Hopkins.
A. W. Allen and Arthur White.
At 1 o'clock a formal assignment was
made to Charles W. Gould, the lawyer.
There are no preferences. No state
ment of the firm's affairs has yet been
given out. The amount, however, will
run high up in the millions.
MAY DISCUSS THE LAW.
Newtpaperi Nay Argue Abont Lotteries
Without Far low Poatmaatera
Washington, Sept. 23. Attorney
General Miller was asked about the
prosecutions recently commenced in
Milwaukee against the publishers of n
newspaper there for sending through
the mails their papers reproducing
from San Francisco and Boston papers
an argument against the validity of the
anti-lottery law passed by tho Fifty
first congress. These prosecution! , the
attorney general saidj he had directed
to be dismissed.
"While I am in favor of prosecuting
vigorously every infraction of the law,
whether direct or evasive, I think the
refusal of the use of the mails to papers
discussing the principles or policy of
the law is unwarranted and would hart
rather than help the cause in the inter
est of which the law was enacted."

ering of this decade. The conference

ber, and in the discussion of various
topics, such as-'The Influence of Modern
Scientific Progress on Religious
Thought," "Ecumenical Methodism,"

London". Sept. 23. At Cambridge
Mr. John Morley said tht the general
election would be a straight fight be
tween the Liberals an 4 Tories, and
there would be no dissenting Liberal
party. Mr. Morley disputed in succes
sion the claim on which the Conserva
tives would make their appeal to the
country. He condemned the indefinite
and persistent occupation! of Egypt and
the methods of government applied to
Ireland. The local government and free
education measures were ' merely skele
ton bills. The Irish land purchase
bjtl was a measure, of -destructive
rather than constructive statesmanship
and the extreme safeguards and restnc
tions, which it was predicted, would ac
company tbe Irish local government bill
would only prolong ana embitter Irish
controversies in parliament. Although

and satisfaction, having every confi
dence in the soundness of the ultima e
judgment of the worker uftuecoun

Itlamarck In Demand.
Berlin, Sept. 22. As fears of wat

revived. It is said the emperor, finding
the situation more difficult than at any

the need of, the advice of his old coun
selor, anAovertures have been made to
him through other eminent personages.
It is certain that last week Princ Luit-
pold, prince of Bavaria, who during t'-e
recent visit of the emperor to Munich
was placed in harmonious and confi
dential relations with his majesty, bad
a secret meeting with Prince Bismarck.
A gentleman who happened to b wait
ing for a train at the Hammermuehl
station, near Varzin, saw the regeut and
rimce liismarcn meet on tbe platform.
After talking together for about five
minutes they entered a saloon ' car,
where they remained in earnest conver
sation for . forty, minutes, . the station
master at the same time keeping off all
intruders. The regent handed Bismarck
a letter which the ex-chancellor -read
several times and treated with so much
respect as to give the impression that it
could only come from imperial hands.
When they issued from the car Bis
marck was in the highest spirits. Luit
pold offered to accompany him to his
carriage, which was waiting to carry
him back to Varzin, but Biwmarck def
erentially persisted and escorted the re
gent to the saloon car. After a hearty
shaking of hands and exchange of fare
wells the distinguished persons parted.
The train moved out of the station and
the ex-chancellor drove off apparently
enveloped in the deepest thought.

pended in annual dinners, while tho
principal itself was to go to the member
who remained nnmarried the longest.
In the three decades which have suc
ceeded, all but fifteen of the original
members have married, and as the
storms of sixty winters have whitened
the hair of the faithful it looks as if
they would stick. It is a question who
will outlive all the others and receive
the reward, which now amounts to
nearly $1,000. They held their annual

Des Moines, Sept. 23. The work of
the Des Moines conference of the Meth
odist Episcopal church closed. The
committee on the observance of Sunday
reported against the desecration of that
day in any form, in the newspapers, the
railroad traffic and the world's fair

using of trains on Sunday was debated
by Mr. Shipman and C. V. Blodgett,

on the district. Fred Harris, who
wrote the resolution, denied that it was
framed to reflect on any one. The re-
ert was amended by Drs. Blodgett and
arned to include a resolution against
traffic on the street cars and other trains

ventions of the association. The report
