TWO LARGE CONCERNS
Philadelphia Monetary Institutions In A
Crippled Condition-Their Affair Mnullt
Up to Millions rreoUMipttoH That 1M1
positors Are Safe Otlur News-.
Thk Spring Garden National bank at
Philadelphia ha? closed its doors by
order of National Bank Examiner Drew.
The Penn Safe Deposit and Trust com
pany, which has its oftU in the Spring
Garden National building, also made an
assignment. But little information as
tt the bank's real condition could be ob
tained. Its capital stock is S7.0,000,
and by the February statement the
reserve fund amounted to $130,000. Thn
opinion among the depositor and stock
holders seems to be that the bank's em
barrassment is only temporary. The
Penn Trust company which assigned
was really a nart of the batik, but is
said to be solvent, the assignment simply
being for protection against a ruu.

offenses, will be secret. The recent re

seven members of parliament, not in

BOYD TO THAYER,
NEBRASKA CHANGES EXECU
TIVES IN SHORT ORDER:
The Supreme Court Hold Against Boyd's
Citlseasalp, aad He is Believed Front
Official Care Gov. Thayer Proceeds to
GoveraT The Case Will Be Appealed.
Another peaceful revolution has been
accomplished in Nebraska,- and (2eh
Johti M. Thayer, is agalH gorcrnbr of
the ebrambhweaitii. The supreme court
on. Monday afternoon handed 'down its
opinion In the Thayer-Boyd qiio' war
ranto base', granting tlic writ and enter
ing a judgment of Ouster against Boyd..
As soon as' possible after the writ of
ouster was prepared, Gov. Thayer filed
the bond required with C. W. Moshcr,
R. C. Outcalt ! and II. T. Oxford as
surieties and took the oath of office be
fore Chief Justice Cobb. The writ was
then placed in the hand of Deputy
Sheriff Hoxie, and that officer, with
Gov. Thaybr and his attonieys and
friends, .proceeded to tho executive
office, 'W the wrjt was .served upon
Gov. Boyd. The governor was not ex
pecting such summary" proceedings, and
was greatly surprised As soon as lie
had read the writ lie said: .
Gentlemen, I recognize the supremacy of
the law arid dnl ready to turn" the office over
to my successor, but 1 Would like an oppof-'
tunity to consult with my attorneys. They
are at the hotel and I havo sent for the'iri.
Gov. Thayer's attorneys. Judge Mason,
Judge Blair and Gen. Webster, said that J
so far as they were concerned they were
perfectly willing, but" the "execution of
the writ lay with the officer. Deputy
(Sheriff Hoxie eftid that there was bttt
one thing for him to do, and that was to
obey the order of the court, serve the
writ and put Gov. Thayer iu possession
of the office, which ho proceeded to do.
Presently John D. Howe one of Gov.
Boyd's attorneys, camo and applied.. to
the supreme court for a stay of proceed
ings pending the preparation of tho
transcript and the bill of cxceptions.but
this was denied. Gov. Thayer took
formal possession of the office Adjt.
Gen. Vifquain tendered his resig
nation and ex-Adj.-Gen. Cole
was rc-appointcd. Gov. Thayer
has aiiuointcd his son, John M.
Thayer, jr.. as private secretary and J.
E. Ferris as executive clerk.
The opinion of the court was rendered
by Justice Norval. Chief Justice Cobb
concurring, briefly as follows:
1. Slate o. rcl. Thayer vs. Hoyd, quo war
ranto; judgment of ouster. The suprcmo
court ha jurisdiction -to entertain proced
inps by information in the nature of quo
warranto, instituted for tho purpose of de
termining the rights of the persons claim
ing the oftire of governor.
2. Under the provision of section 2,
article 4. of the constitution, u person Is
not eligible to the office of governor who
has not been citizen-of the United States
and this state for at least two years next
preceding the election at which said officer
Is to lie chosen.
3. Where a plurality of votes arc cast for
a person for a public oftVc who is ineligible
the election is void.
4. Under the fourth section of the act of
congress entitled '-An act to establish a
uniform rule of ir.it tirallrat ion," approved
April 14. 1602, the child of an alien under 21
years of age, although born in a foreign
country, become a citizen by the naturaliz
ation of his parents, if dwelling within tho
United States at the time the parents are
admitted to citizenship; but it does not
have that effect if he is over 21 years old at
the time the parent is naturalized. The or
der of the court admitting an alien to citi
zenship is a judicial act in the nature of a
tndiriiieiit. and can be proved only by tho
C. The fact that an alien has for many I
years voted at elections held in the state
and fdled important public offices does not '
establish that he is a citizen of the United
7. Whore an alien is naturalized under
the naturalization laws his citizenship dates
from the time tho order of the court is
made admitting him to citizenship.
8. The alien inhabitants of the territory
of Nebraska at time of its admission as a
state did not become citizens of the United
States by virtue of the acts of congress ad
mitting the state into the union.
0. The words "citizens of the United
States," as ued In section 2 of article 4 of
the state constitution, are construed to
mean a person who is an American citizen
by birth or a person of foreign birth who
has been duly naturalized under the pro
visions of the uniform rule of naturaliza
tion established by congress.
10. Under section 1 of article 5 of tho con
stitution a person elected to the office of
governor is entitled to discharge the duties
and receive the emolument, of the office for
the'tcrni of two years from the first Thurs
day after the first Tuesday in January fol
lowing his election and until a successor is
duly elected and qualified.
11. When the persons receiving the high
est numl)cr of votes for the office of gov
ernor is ineligible under the constitution to
be elected the governor holds over.
12. Tho duties of the chief executive office
of the state devolves upon the lieutenant
governor and in certain contingencies,
among which are the failure of the governor
elect to qualify and disability of the gov
ernor. It cannot be said that there has
been a failure to qualify where no person
has been constitutionally elected to the
13. The words "other disabilities of the
governor" appearing in section 1C. article
53, of the constitution have no reference to
the Ineligibility of a person to be elected,
but cover any disability of the governor not
specifically enumerated in the section oc
curring oftcr the commencement of. his
term of office.
14. It Is held that when the non-election
of a person to a public office Is ascertained
by proceedings in quo warranto- the person
entitled to hold over. must then requalify.

WashixgtOs, "ft C, May 4, 1891. J
A series of statements addressed to tho
Marquis Imperlall by the Marqdk Hndln!
was telegraphed from Home yesterday, and
was published by tho press of tho United
States Unday. Tho oaly part of the Marquis
Rudinl's communication which this Gov
ernment desires to notice Is the one hero
quoted, namely, "I havo now before me a
U3te addressed to you by Secretary Blaine,
on April 14. ' It's perusal produces a most
palrlfiil imprcs.Hm on me. I will not stop
to lay stress upon tho lack of conformity
with diplomatic tisrtges displayed in mak
ing usei as -Mr. Maine did not -hesitate to
do. of a portion of a telegram. Of mine com
municated to him in strict confidence, in
order to get rid of a question clearly defined
In Our official documents, which alone pos
sess a diplomatic value." Tho telegram of
March 24. concerning whose public use the
Marquis Rudlnl complains, is the following,
which was quoted In full lii my note of
Aorll 14 to Marquis Imperlall. Charge
d"Affalres of Italy at this capital:
Home. JHarcn -'4, iS'Ji
Italian Minister. Washington:
Our requests to tho Federal Government
are very simple. Some Italian subjects ac
niltted hv the American magistrates have
been murdered in prison wlillo under the'
immediate protection of the authorities.
Our right, therefore to demand and obtain
the punishment of the murderers and au
Indemnity for the victims is'nnquestlonable.
I wish to add that the public opinion in
Italy Is' justly impatient, and If concrete
provisions were not at once taken I should
find myself In the painful necessity of show
ing openly our dissatisfaction by recalling
the minister of his majesty from a country
Where he is unable to obtain justice.
The Intimation of the Marquis Kudlnl
that the telegram in question wa delivered
in strict confidence Is a total error. As a
telegram expressed the demand of the
Italian -government- it was .impossible that
Marqujs Kudinl .could; transmit it ln-strlct
confidence. As I havo already stated, it
was- communicated to me in person by
Baron Fava, written in English by his own
handwriting, without a suggestion of pri
vacy, and tho "telegram Itself has not a
single mark upon It denoting a confidential
character. I havo caused a number of
copies of tho telegram to be forwarded to
you to-day in fac simile. The usual mark
for italic printing was used by me under
four lines, and they appear In the copies.
You will use the -fac simile in such manner
as will most effectually prove the error into
which tho Marquis Rudlnl has fallen.
It was plain to thoe who saw Mr.
Blaine that he was annoyed by the re
mark of Rndini that he had failed to
conform to diplomatic usages. The
Premier also went so far as to accuse
the American Secretary of disclosing a
confidential dispatch in order to get
around a question which tins Marquis
intimates had puzzled him in the pre
vious negotiations. The Secretary by
this reply has once more placed the Ital
ian Premier in an unfavorable Hsrht, and
has spoiled his attempt to let himself
down easy. This dispatch necessitates
a reply from Kudini, and the opinion
among Government officials is that it
cannot add anything to the dignity of
his' position or aid in maintaining tho
Italian side of the controversy.
Ilito the Kntl or Your Clear.
Dr. Fertl "Wilson ami friend went
into a Broadway cigar store the other
day. The friend selected a dark
Havana, put one end between his lips,
rolled it a hit to moisten it, then put the
tip in the metal cutter on the counter
and clipped it off. He then placed the
clipped' end in his month and drew iu
onco or twice before lighting. He
coughed several times as he lighted the
weed. "Pardon me," said the doctor,
"you shonld never do it that way.
Here is the method." The doctor
picked up another cigar, bit the end off
with his teeth, placed the other end in
his month, and blew smartly once or
twice and then leisurely lighted it.
"You notice," said the doctor, "I did
not congh. You did. The philosophy
of it is shis : when ihe end of a cigar
is bitten off it crushes a small portion
of the tobacco into powder. If you
put the end immediately into your
month and inhale, the small particles
are almost certain to lodge somewhere
in the throat and cause irritation.
That makes you congh, and, if your
tonsils happen to be in the right direc
tion for it, a case of bronchitis or worse
may compel yon to call me iu. I never
Use" the clipper that is used by the
frefinenters-of a cicar store. -The ma
jority of. the men moisten the tip of a
cigar, as you did, before cutting it.
Now you never know the condition
of theman who preceded you. Some
'of the moisture from his lips remains
on the cntter, and your cigar may take
on a portion of it.
"Some years ago a young man camo
to me with cancer of the lip. contract
ed as near as I' could trace in the way
I have described. He had had chapped
lips at the time, and the poison got
into his blood through a break in his
skin. It was a particularly distressing
affair. The young fellow was a per
sonal friend of mine, and was engaged
to be married. I knew his habits and
conduct to be above reproach, but he
was extremely sensitive. He broke off
his engagement and went "West, al
though his prospects here were excel
lent. I could only commend iiis course,
for disease had become fastened in his
system. I pitied him from the bottom
of my heart. So don't use the cigar
clipper that others use." A'eie YorA:
The Old Way Heat.
The old poem of the days of tho
month, entitled "Thirty days hath
September," has been changed in the
New York public schools so that tho
charm and beauty of its defects have
vanished, and it" is now correct and
commonplace. As it stood for a cen
tury or more" it ran :
Thirty days hath September,
April. Jane and November.
February has twentv-elght alone
All the rest have thirty-one ;
Excepting leap jerr, that's the time
When February has twenty. nine.
The version peculiar to New England
would have done so far as correct rhym
ing goes. That version ended with
these lines -
Except the second month alone
Which Las but twenty-eight in fine,
Till leap-year gives It twenty-nine.
But the form in which it ia taught in
the publkr schools is neither more cor
rect nor as simple. This is the part
that .has been subjected to modern im
'AU tho rBit havo thirty-one,
, ' -Excepting February alone.
Which has four and twenty-four,
' -' And every fourth year on day more. -
