AN IMITATION WIFE.
I had adjusted my tie, taken up my
hat and was preparing- to leave, when
tho door slowly opened and my moth
er came in.
-joingr out; aro you, Tom?" said
Where to another party?"
makes three this week,
We'ro hurrying to get
Goinsr to tako Miss Beau
fort to-night and then I'm dono with
tho Jolly cluh's parties."
Mother, somehow or other, did not
seem to think very much of what I
Tom. I wish you would get mar
ried." she said, with a troubled face.
I believe you would stay at homo
"Well I am awful tired, mother,
and completely worn out"
Then why don't you quit it?"
Tho best reason in the world,
mother. I am neither engaged nor in
love; but I'm willing to be both."
It was getting late, so 1 started
after this; but the sad look on my
mother s faco set mo thinking,
mother is the best woman in
world, oven if I do say it myself,
1 felt worried about her. She
right I was out nearly ovory oven
ing this evening at a reception, next
time at a ball, then a theatro partj',
and so on.
Of course I could well afford it for
my salary as cashier at Hart's was a
liberal one. But I was not saving a
penny; and my home folks never saw
me except at tho table. Even poor
old patient mother was complaining.
But I was having lots of fun. There
was that Beaufort girl she was a fine
one. Could dance any dance, talk
about anything and make you havo
tho linest time in the world.
Then there was Vene Wright. Sho
would play a game with a fellow, go
rowing, skating anything for fun.
Then. Vene had money; that" was an
important item. Why should'ut I
tackle Miss Vene on the subject of
Thomas, old son. "said I to my
self, "Vene is the one. "
But Vene, somehow or other did
not exactly suit tho case, and my mind
reverted to Miss Beaufort who was
smart pretty, stylish, and suited bet
ter, but I knew nothing about her
financial standing. This was an im
portant matter to me in those days.
Meanwhile the carriage approached
Miss Beaufort's. I had never boen
thero before, and to my surprise found
it to bo a very unpretentious house. I
confess I was disappointed. I expected
to drive up to an elegant-mansion, bo
ushered into a fine reception room by
a servant in livery and there await
the coming of Miss Beaufort Then
I expected to make a bold dash for her
hearts-propose, and possibly bo ac
cepted or declined by 'the time the
party was over.
But not so. A little lady with gray
hr.ir opened tho door, and she was in
troduced to me by Miss Beaufort as
mamma." Miss Boaufort was ready
and waiting, so wo walked out to the
Mr. Silver." said she. after we
had seated ourselves, don't you think
thero is a great amount of snobbery
in society, and lots of downright fool
ishness." "Well yea" said L
For instance," said sho, "hero is
an elegant carriage that you have
brought for me, and yet tho party is
not half a mile away."
This certainly was very refreshing.
I had actually squandered 1 to havo
this carriage for the ovoning. and sho
was not pleased with it 1 know Vene
would havo enjoyed a ride in it
"Mr. Silver," sho remarked again,
"this is tho last party I am going to
Well, why?" saidL "Aren't you
going to take in the German club ball
and the others?"
No, " said she. "Mamma hasn't
the money; sho can't afford it. Be
sides, Mr. Silver." she continued,
an you really afford to spend so
much money on society?"
I looked at her. There was hon
esty fairly shining out of her pretty
black eyes, even if she wasn't very
polite, so I answered her Iwnestly:
No, Miss Beaufort I cannot! I
haven't saved u penny this winter, and
1 get a big salary, too. It seems
I have met you so frequently I
feel quite well acquainted with you.
though I expect I havo been a little
No." said L "I am glad that you
take that much interest in me."
Then we changed the -subject I had
a splendid time at tho party aud en
joyed Miss Beaufort's company very
much. I found her lovel-headed and
bright if she was too frank.
The next day I told mothor about
it She said sho admired Miss Beau
fort for her common sense, though
sho had never seen her. Then she
referred again to my getting married.
"Suppose." said she. that you pre
tend for a week or so that you are
married and see how it coes?' '
"An imitation wife." said I.
"Why not?" sho .said. "I will
write tho namo of a young lady on
card, seal it in an envelope, and you
can lock it in your desk. Then let
us suppose that you are married to
her for say two weeks. During that
time I want you act just as if the lady
were here in person and your lawfully
Whoso name are you going to
write on the card?" stid L
"Never mind." said she. -I wilL
write my preference, and neither of us
will breathe a word about this to a-living-
We agreed on this, .Mother .wrote?
the name on the card and sealed it in
the envelope. I knew it was Vene
Wright's name, so I decided to
imagine that Vene was there in
person, and so we commenced tho
Monday night came. That was tho
night of the German club ball, but I
stayed at home and talked to mother.
Then J played draughts with her for
awhile, and we managed to have a
very enjoyable evening.
Next morning mother met me at the
table with smiles and about the best
breakfast I had eaten for a long
"You must imagine that your wife
saw to this breakfast" she whispered.
Going to the city this morning, who
should get into the 'bus but Miss
Beaufort I bowed to her gracefully,
passed her fare to the conductor, and
was about to sit down by her side
when I happened to think of my imita
tion wife at home, and kept my seat
by the door:
"Marrried men have no business
talking to the young ladies," said I to
Miss Beaufort looked at ,mo rather
queerly. but said nothing, and I
thought the 'bus would never get to
Thursday -was the evening I was to
call on Vene, and I forgot to send her
an excuse. On Friday a note came
from her. which mother took tho
liberty of opening, as she thought I
would not care, and she felt like rep
resenting my wife in the desk. It
was a tender missive and somewhat
surprised me when I saw it But
what could I do? Married men have
no business getting tender notes from
young ladies. Inasmuch as I had con
tracted to carry out mother's plan for
two weeks. I left the note for mother
to answer. She is a very truthful
woman, but in answering the note she
She said that I was very sick, and
as a natural consequence Vene called
that afternoon to seo me. but I was at
business, and mother had to invent
another story. Then she had to como
all the way to the office so as to keep
me from coming home my usual way
for fear Veno might catch us.
"J laughed a good deal at mother, and
vene did not find us out, but Mrs.
Jones an awful gossip met her, and
Veno told her I was sick, and the next
day all my society friends came round
among thorn Miss Beaufort
Mother met her rather coldly, but
invited her to stay awhile.
I suppose Mr. Silver is almost' worn
out with so much going out?" said the
"He is much better." said mother,
"but I do not think ho will go out for
several weeks. I think that I shall
keep him at home. "
"1 am so glad." said Miss Beaufort;
not that you are going to keep him
at home, but that he is not going out
so much. I am getting so that I fairiy
detest society. Here was a woman
who had my mother's views, and they
both thereupon had a confidential talk,
and pleased each other mightily.
Then sho asked the mater to call on
her mother, which sho did.
Meanwhile I was staying at homo
every evening and was getting pretty
tired of it as the two weeks were
drawing to a close.
Don't you think a man ought to
take his wife out once in a while?"
said I to mother.
Why not?" said she.
"Then I'll tako her to tho theater
to-night" So I took a couplo of re
served seats at Drury lane theater for
the following night and mother, who
represented my wife, went with me.
We had hardly taken our seats be
fore I noticed that they were adjoin
ing those of Miss and Mrs. Beaufort
Wo went home together that night
and laughed and talked a good deal.
I think mother told Mrs. Beaufort
what wo had been doing, but I did
not hear it I know that several days
later, after my two weeks of married
life were over. I went to call on Miss
Beaufort. We had a pleasant time
together, and just as I was about to
leave the old lady came In.
"I forgot to ask you. Mr. Silver,
what you thought of married lifer"
Miss Beaufort looked horrified, but
Mother has been telling you, has
sho?" said I
"She has." said she.
Well" said I 'during the two
weeks I was married I read three good
books, gained four pounds in weight
and saved 5 10s.. besides paying
mother for my wife's board and the
tickets to Drury Lane."
And who were you married to?"
asked Miss Beaufort
"I forgot to look," said I. I hur
ried home to see who my wife had
been. The envelope was just as I
had placed it in my desk drawer. I
tore it open, and there was the name
of Miss Beaufort ,
WelL" said L "mother made her
an imitation wife, now I will try to
make her a real one."
And so I did. N. Y. Mercury.

Rkhoat Fester's Episcopal Address to
Omaha, May C Bishop Warren, the
rich bishop of Denver, presided at tho
session of yesterday's Methodist
conference. Dr. Myley of New York
conducted the devotional exercises.
Chancellor Creighton of Lincoln at
once moved that all the necessary
motions and ex-parte remarks be
eliminated from the record before it be
printed, but Dr. Neely of Philadelphia
opposed this, saying that the record be
a true, not a garbled one. Dr. Pendle
ton of Kansas had the motion tabled
without further discussion.
Sanford Hunt of Genesee asked unani
mous consent to have a committee on
memoirs appointed. It was granted,
and Dr. Buckley of New York addressed
the convention on the abuse of the
memoirs at the last conference. He
said that the length of some of the
papers was so appalling that
half of the conference went
out while they were being read.
He moved that all memoirs written be
restricted to fifteen minutes and all ex
temporaneous addresses be kept down
to five minutes, in order to make me
morial service a tender one and not a
scandalous farce. This evidently
aroused the ire of several, as instantly
a dozen were on their feet. Dr. Leon
ard of Ohio became acrimonious apd
moved to make the limit twenty
minutes, and failing to get a stand at
tempted to make a speech; but the pre
vious question was then demanded and
the motion was carried.
After the appointment of commit
tees the order of business was taken up
and Bishop Foster began reading the
Episcopal address. After congratula
ting the assembly upon its auspicious
meeting and passing eulogies upon the
dead officers and laymen, he stated
that the past quadannum had been a
prosperous one in the church and that
no bishops had died. The bishops
have made more that fifty thousand as
signments of ministers and families
with but little dissatisfaction. Work
in foreign fields has been
given more than ordinary care.
The report congratulated the church
on its hospitals aud humanitarian in
stitutions. It congratulated the church
on the fact that colored members are
received in all conferences on platforms
and at all communions without any
discrimination. Churches have In
creased 264, with an increased valuation
of $18,321,321. Many of these churches
have been helped by church extension.
Contributions to all missionary societies
have increased $334,13."). All the church
societies are flourishing and receipts
Three thousand copies of the report
were ordered printed.
The matter of the conference claims
of superanuated preachers was called
up and discussed at length. It is de
sired to place the superanuated minis
ters' fund among the present benevo
lent features of the churh and create
a board to care jor it There seemed
to be an idea that the matter wa3 to be
interred without fitting treatment.
Dr. Burns made a speech and im
mediately moved the previous question
to shut off debate, which brought
Dr. Hammond of California was of
the opinion that the matter was of ex
ceptional importance and should be
considered by a committee on which
all conferences were represented. He
offered as a substitute a motion that

delegates from each conference district
and one at large.
The motion was not settled before

THE METHODIST CONFERENCE. '
The Chinese Exclusion Hill the rrlnel- !
pal Subject of DUcnui'Mj. .
Omaha, May 3. For the first time I
since the conference opened the sun '
came out yesteraay ana saone
brightly. As a result, long before
Bishop Mallalieu called the conference
to order nearly every delegate was in
his seat, while the balconies and seats
set apart for spectators presented a
brilliant scene, more women being
present than at any other session. Dr.
Burt of Italy conducted the devotional
exercises, assisted by Chaplain Mc
Cabe, the evangelistic singer-
The action of President Harrison in
signing the Chinese exclusion act last
night within a few hours of delivery to
him is being seriously criticised by the
delegates. The committee appointed
3'esterday to prepare a memorial pro
testing against the bill telegranhcd
the President lost night concerting
tho matter and they are not satis'fied
with the aotion of the President
The Committee on -Chinese exclusion
split on their reports. Judge Lawrence
of Ohio offered the majority, which
recommended that as the President had
for good reasons signed the bill the
matter be filed and nothing more be
done. Dr. Swindeles said that the con
ference must at once take some
steps to protect its missions in
China. Naught could be dome,
he said, to prevent the law; bnt
something must be done to protect the
Chinese in the United States and the
Americans and the missionaries in
China or there is liable to be loss of
life. Dr. Quealy moved that the ques
tion involved in relation of the church
to the Chinese gestion be recommitted
to the committee for future action.
Judge Lawrence believed the matter
should bo referred to another committee-
for further consideration and con
siderable discussion followed.
Dr. Lindells said the bill was the
most iniquitous measure ever passed by
the Congress of this country.
The conference is now in a position
to do business. One of the first things
is the election of an editor of the Cen
tral 'Christian Advocate, owing to the
death of Dr. Benjamin St James Fryth.'
The selection must come from the
West Rev. W. T. Smitlj, of Des

THEY MUST ASSESS OWNERS
Officers Not Allowed to Notice Interest
Lansing, Mich., May 9 The Su
preme court decided to-day that the
provision of the new general tax law
providing that the total value of all
real estate mortgages owneu oy sav-
rs banks, insurance companies, etc..
Iply to all mortgages regardless of
le fact tnat tney mignt contain
Clauses by which the mortgagor agrees
fp pay the tax. The court says
that assessing officers have no
business to inquire into the terms of a
attortgago, their duty being simply to
assess the mortgage interest to the
iuirlgagee and the interest in the land
fo the Owner thereof. Writs of man
damns were therefore granted to com
pel tho Detrolt'board of assessors to
deduct mortgages containing tax
elstiees hold by the savings banks and
ijismrance companies of that city from
their capital stock for assessment pur
aoaes, a thing which the board had re
fused to do.

We, the Democrats of Wisconsin, in
State convention assembled, do declare
our continued allegiance to the funda
mental principles of Democratic faith.
And we denounce the legislation of
tho last Republican Congress, increas
ing the burden of taxation on the peo
ple at large to enhance the bounties to
the favored few.
We maintain that the trne interests
of the peoplo demand sound, honest,
and staple money, composed of or based
on and redeemable in gold and silver
coin of equal intrinsic value. We there
fore oppose the project of unlimited
coinage of silver dollars of less com
mercial value than gold dollars as un
democratic, dishonest, and specially
hurtful to the farmers and laboring
classes, the first and most defenseless
victims of unstable money and a fluc
We heartily commend the action of
those Democratic Representatives in
Congress from this State who have op
posed all measures for silver coinage
on a false basis.
We are opposed to State interference
with parental rights and rights of con
science in the education of children as
an infringement of the fundamental
Democratic doctrine that the largest
individual liberty consistent with the
rights of others insures the highest
type of American citizens and the best
We cordially commend the course of
the present Democratic State Govern
ment with its splendid record of honest
performance of party pledges; in the
removal from the statute books of a
flagrant assault upon the rights of con
science.individual liberty, and parental
authority; in the application of the .in
terest on the moneys of the State to
the public use, and the J successful
prosecution of suits to recover to the
people the earnings of their money
misappropriated by proceeding State
Treasurers, and the large savings by
economy and wise business methods.
We hereby direct the de legates from
Wisconsin to the Democratic national
canvention to be held in Chicago June
21 next to vote as a unit on all subjects
and candidates when and as the ma
jority of the delegation may direct
We approve the record of the last
Democratic national convention.
We admire the President, whose
ability, honesty.and devotion to public
duty enthroned that administration in
the confidence of all good citizens.
We therefore desire our delegates at
the national convention to use all hon
orable means to nominate for Presi
dent the man who is in himself the
embodiment and guarantee of sound
Democratic principles Grover Cleve
land. Which plank received the most ap
plause would be hard to say; but the
declarations as to the tariff and the
compulsory school law were behind

cheering evoked. At the mention of
