this was that Johannesburg eociety was

Us members believed safety was to bo
found only In thd greatest" dignity and
formality, livon to lot down the bars

results, bo Johannesburg took its Boclal
pleasures with every restraint of tho

woman said that all Irtntilrlea and em-
barmaslng questions Were ignored, and
, the Inhabitants, realising that they
'wore in n far-off country and dependent
on ono anoChor for society of any kind,
mado tho best of the situation. Tho

In an article on "Tho Enforcement of
the Law," General Harrison In Ladles'
Home Journal, directs attention to tho
need of legislation to insure protection
to citizens of othor countries living In
th6 United Elates; " Thoro is,
however, a dluss of nersons In tho
''States to whom tho direct protection of
the United States is duo. though no
proper legislation has as yet' been
passed to make It offocilvc. I refer to
;tho .-vfltlxcns of foreign" countries who,
'tinr treaties' we havo with ouch coun
ties, aro domiciled In tho Btates, and
to whom such treaties guarantee the
'protection of tho law. As yet congress
frm not legislated to glvo the United
States courts Jurisdiction at prosecu
tlonc for offonaoa against such ner-
tone, In derogition of their treaty J
rights. The killing of eomo Italian
wibjecjs In New Orleans, In March.
1891, and the demand of tlio Italian
government for tho punbhmont of the
cOtfAtdurs, and for an indemnity,
brought this atraugo and unsatisfac
tory condition tit things very strongly
v'o the attention of our government.
t ho UnUcd States had mado a treaty
with Italy giving certain rights to tho
ubjecte of that kingdom living In this
country. Yet when the domand wna
.mado that tho offenders should bo tried
and punished wu could only say tho
"United States la powerless: we havo
'Jeft that to tho" stnto authorities nnd
C&n only suggest that proceedings bo
taken by them. Thld was manifestly
'unsatisfactory. Tho United 'States
jdiodo tho trenty, Italy could not make
a tpsAty wlth Louisiana, nor demand
and Indemnity ol her. Like tn
'plflentB havo' frequently occurred and
will ocour again, and congress should
fia legislate as to give the Unltod States
courts appropriate powers to protoct
those who are hero in the 'peace of ttie
"United States.' " i-

AVnahlngti-July 20, 18QG.
Wnshiiifou' has practically boon
octUed wpou us tho proper location
for democratic hoadqunVtors dur
ing tho coming compaigii'. Senator
Jones, of At'lc, Chairnmu of the
J)cinocrutio National Committee,
'ijsado it careful study of tho ad-
fnntngoa offered' by Notv "York,
'Chicago and Washington respect
ively, and has mado up 'his mind,
largely owing to tho ope'n hostility
of tho nowspapers in both Now
York and Chicago, that "Washing
ton u tho best place. While tho
chbicn of Senator Jones is regard
ed ns having settled this hoad
quartors business, ho in so anxious
that everything dono by tho Na
tional Commitloo shall bo harmon
ious, that no official annottnec
mont of tho location of Head
quarters is liUoly to bo mado un
til tho Committee which will
shortly meet in Now York, pasbes
upon it.
Tho railroodB of tho country are
considerably exorcised 6ver tho
ortfor recontly issued by the post
irfastor general to tho effect that'all
mail must bo stamped hereafter.
Tho railroads seem disposed to
stand togothor, continue tho pres
ent pructices and test tho authority
of tho government in Ibis mattor
by an appeal to the United States
supromo court.
Many democrats aro much
pleased at tho talk of tho probab
ility that Senator Gorman will
havo a hand in managing Bryan
and Sownll's campaign, either as
Chairman of tho Executive com
mittee or as General advisor. Al
though Chairman Jones has full
authority to select tho mombfers of
tho Executive committee, which
Will assist him in conducting tho
campaign, it is not probablo that
tho membership of that committee
will be announced untjl Chairman
Jones Bubmitj his choice to tho
full National committee. Senator
Gorman has few, if any, equals
and no buporiors as a political
manager. True, ho isn't a silver
man; but neither is he ,a boltor.
Ho is going to support tho ticket
because it is tho democratic ticket,
and if ho can bo porsunded to ac
cept tho Chairmanship of tho Ex-
octive Committee it will be fortun-
uto in more thnn ono respect for
tho party. Ho has tho prestige of
having buccossfully managed a
National Campaign and tho very
fact that ho was helping to manngo
this one would horvo to bring out
many democratic voles 'Which
would not otherwise bo cast.
'Senator Jones is going to his
Arkansas homo for a short rest
before beginning tho continuous
work of tho campaign. Ho will
go by tho way of St. Louis, so as
to bo thoro when tho populiBt con
vention meets this week. He ex
pects that tho populiBt will ondorso
Bryan and Sewall and he wants to
be on hand when they do in order
to confer with the populist leaders
about iho'campaign. lie also ex
pects to' confer with tho boiling
silver republicans, who havo
already announced their intention
to support tho democratic ticket.
Speaker Rood's opinion of Quay
and Mauley as McKinloy cam
paign managers would make in
teresting reading. Several weeks
before tjie St. Louis convention
liiet, Mr.'Keed had reason tq bo
lcivo that Quay and Manley had
betrayed him to Hnnnti and what
has happonod since muBt havo
convinced him of that fact. Both
of these Ex-Reed men aro now
members of Hanna's executive
committee, and Quay is much
more than merely a member of
that Committee. It Iuib leaked
out that Quay will, from tho Now
York headquarters, boss tho en
tire campaign in the Eastor states;
also, that he will havo exclusivo
chargo of a scheme by which ho
hopes to carry several Southern
states. This last scheme is said
to depend largely upon tho sup
port of bolting gold democrats in
those states for success, as it in
cludes a combination of that ele
ment with tho negro voters, npcm
both Congressional and electoral
tickets. It was intonded that this
scheme sjiould bo kept durk.

ohh Ollmer Speed writes upon how
to organize ond conduct a Village Im
provement Society In Ladles' Home
Journal. He prefaces his paper with
the ntssertlon that the "futuro prosper
ity of tho country vlllago depends, In a
great measure, upon Its suitability for
the summer residence ot thoso who pre
fer, at that season, to leave tho hot nnd
crowded cities," and argues further thai
'a Vlllago Improvement Society should
he a pure democracy, and within its
membership It should embrace every
man and wqraan of good repute In the
neighborhood, and besides thlB there
should bo established an auxiliary
league of children. This leaguo should
be asked, and urged, and instructed to
assist the main society. Stfch societies
nro usually supported by fees and dues.
This Is very well In n village where the
majority of tho people are qulto pros-,
perouB and usually havo a store of
ready money at their disposal. J3ut
even In such places I prefer tho matho"$"
of supporting the society by 4dfreW
voluntary subscription of mjn
labor and material. Labor is Just a1
good as money, and Is given much mom
freely by all save tfioso who are rich."
After canvassing the mnCter Mr.
Speed suggests a public meeting, to be .
addressed by, some" ono familiar with,
the details of the work, preceding pre
liminary organization, and the adoption
of a constitution. Permanent ofllcerV
and committees should be named at tho
first meeting, and precoding the second
ono the first labor day should bo ob
served. "On that day till tho men and
tenms in tho village should congregate
to work under the direction of the exec
utive committee, and tho ladles of tho
society should provide a picnic lunch
eon for tho workers tliat day. In some
untidy villages tho whole of tho first
labor day might be given to cleaning
up; in others the sidowalks might be put
in better order, or pieces of now side
walk constructed; in nearly every y'rt
lnge It would be a good thing to put
the grounds nnd fences of the publlo
echoojhouso In ordor. But there aro al
ways very obvious needs everywhere
before the advent of tho village im
prover. But what Is dono thHt day
should bo dono with some thorough
ness, and tho noonday luncheon Is apt
to Invest the day with some of the char
acteristics of n festival. What (s dono
will bo discussed In ovcry house oJ tho
village, and tho achievements will In
spire confldonco or provoke criticism."
