Much Ado About Nothing.
Senator Van Wyck lias been in public
llfp over thirty years in various position
of honor nnd trust He has served in the
nntionnl legislature nearly fourteen year * ,
nnd in tlio Nebraska stnte legislature-
terms , and was one of tlic f rumors of om
state constitution. H" nrved mthe lowei of congress during the most evil
ing period of our liNtory before : ntl tltir
ing tlio civil war. He wits a nioinber of
the Nebraska state senate during a period
Alien jobbery was rampant , and reckless
loss drafts upon the taxpayers were
regarded as the lejrttimute pay
of partisans and spoils-litintur < His record
in UHJ United States senate is an opeti
book. His carror as a gallant soldier is a
part of tin- luxury of tliu war. His per
sonal enemies and the minioimof monopoly
ely have ransacked all the records in
congress , in the legislaturennd lu the
war department for campaign ammniil-
ion. Thuy liave invaded the privacy
if his hoitscliold , inquired into bis bank
ccounN , nosed around the mortgage
coords nnd taken an inventory of his
arses , carriages , silver plate and other
Valuables. After all this search thev
mvo made but one discovery which
hey deem fatal to Van Wyck's aspiration
'or ' a second term They have actually
iscovercd tlmt Van Wyck commanded a
'cgimct ' t in the army and was actually a
number of congress at the sanio time
I'his discovery in positively shocking.
These bravo iintriots who have neither
.ecu . .service in the arm y nor over been
iVitliin a thousand miles of a battle , and
urc not likely ever to represent tliu people
ple in any capacity , are highly indignant
over Van Wjok's awful crime. They
ruftiso to eondono it oven twenty-
jtie years after the war. They insist
hat Van Wyck must have drawn
double pay for a few months as n colonel
.mil a member of congress , because , for
sooth , iio has not so n lit to deny it. They
ivork themselves up into a towering pas
sion over this monstrous exhibition of
lishoncsty. Why should not the people
of Nebraska rise in all their majesty to
ehuko Van Wyck ?
One of the inspired idiots Who is now
ccklossly slinging blacUgtiard ink at
'toncral Van \Vyck \ in the editorial col-
inins of the Omaha Jlcpublican takes us
.o task in the following fashion :
The BKI : mentions Senator SprnRiin , ( Jen-
; ral Uarlield and Ainnsa Cobb. ol Wiscon
sin , ns parallel cnses to that of Van Wvok's ,
and "has little doubt" that they drew double
lay also. Of ( iencral Uarliuld 1t Is known
hat when lie wa- > circled to COIIRICSS ho le-
slencd fioiu the army , nnd therefore could
lot diaw double pay , and \\hctlier Spugitu
or Cobb did or did not , does not concern us
n this slate. They are not candidates toi
the senate from Xebr.iskn.
It makes no Uiflorence to the mud
slinger of tlio Jlcpnbiicmi that other
prominent men served in the army and
in congress at the same time. They
were , of course , carried on the pay-roll
of tlio army until mustered out , while
congressional salaries were running by
the year , and not by the month or ses
sion. The commodious donkey of the
Jlcpnblican actually declares that this
fact doesn't concern us in thi.s state be
cause neither Spiague nor Cobb is a can
didate in Nebraska. Wo cheerfully
admit thai ox-Governor Spragueof Uliodo
Island' is not a candidate for United
States senator from Nebraska , but Amnsn
Cobb , \Vi-consin \ , is a candidate for
Van Wyck's senatorial brogans. Cobb is
not only a candidate but tho'mosl promi
nent candidate next to Van Wyck. For
further particulars inquire of Manager
Iloldrcgo , ot the B. & M. railroad , in
Omaha , and T. M. Marquctte , general
solicitor of the same corporation at Lin
To the intelligent masses this grave
charge against Van Wyck is a most con
temptible and ridiculous piece of dema
gogy. It only shows to what straits
Van Wyek's opponents are driven in
their desperate anxiety to besmirch him.
Why don't they produce something from
his record in congress , or in the state
legislature , which will show him to bo
dishonest , disreputable , incompetent , or
negligent of the material welfare of the
people. They cannot do it. Having
nothing serious to chanro him with , they
arc making much ado about nothing.
Hunting Down it Spoilsman.
When Mr. Clovel.ind returns from his
vacation , it is to bo hoped in improved
health and replenished energy , ho will
have no difliettlty in finding mallei's of
importance to occupy his time and atten
tion , lie will doubtless feel called upon
to have some serious talks with his scoreJ
tary of stnte , who has not accomplished
since the president's absence anything
that will redound to the glory of the ad
ministration , and ho may think it advisa
ble to talk over with his acting hoorctary of
the treasury tlio wisdom of his nuw ex
pedient for reducing the public debt by
inviting bondholders to bond in bonds
for redemption. Among the many mat
ters to which the executive attention
will bo asked , charges affecting Iho olli-
cial condmt of the chief spoilsman un
der the administration , Pension Com
missioner IHaok , having reference to
gross violations of the civil service law ,
will not bo Ihe least interesting to the
country , if not to the president , for the
reason that they will at least inciden
tally , bo it is said , illustrate in what abso
lute contempt the civil service laws are
hold by various branches of tlio reform
Tlio president is not wholly Ignorant of
the course that was pursued by General
lilack , during the llrst months of his ad
ministration of the pension bureau , in
disregarding the olyil sorvlco laws. The
matter was freely talucd of by the press ,
was informally presented to the attention
of Mr. Cleveland by Mr , Katon when ho
was a member of the civil sorvlco com
mission , and was virtually confessed by
lilnok before the senate committee of in
quiry. Indeed , so clearly was it shown
that this ollioinl had recklessly disre
garded tlio law , evidently from strong
partisan feeling , that it seemed thai the
president must inevitably remove him
or abandon his professions of reform in
this direction. Hut Mr. Cleveland was
content with administering some disci
pllnary counsel , and lilack remains in
The restatement of the case will como
from ex-Commissionor Katon , who ap
pears to be moved thereto by the desire
to vindicate himself and his follow-com
missioners. The necessity for this effort
nt vindication grows out of the circtim
stance of the present chief commissioner ,
Oberly who it may be remarked
is exhibiting a degree of /.on1
in his work that may exhaust It bofor.
Ihe term of the administration expires
having publicly laid the blame of Gen
ofnl < Hlnck's violations of the civil service
, laws l nt the door of Mr. Eaton for having
, failed ) to make the proper investigations ,
and In n regular and formal way pre
sented the facts to the president. Al
though the expectation is said to bo en-
teitamcd in fromo quarters that the re
newal of specific charges against Hlark
will compel an in\obligation by the presi
dent , there is very little probability of
any such result. There tire obvious rea-
< > ons why Mr. Cleveland would not do-
sinto emphasise the fact that ho is re
taining i in otllco n man who holds a car
dinal ( feature of his reform policy in con
tempt i , and is only acting agreeably with
it 1 now under constraint. The matter Is
of interest , however , as a somewhat con
spicuous illustration of the fact that the
profession and practice of the ndminis-
Iration arc not always In harmony , and
with other facts may be
seivicetible two years hence.
Tito TronHitry I'ollt'.v.
The policy of the treasury department
tinder the present ndministratldn has
been characteri/cd by .some curious
methods anil depai lures. The controll
ing motive of the now hands placed in
charge seemed to have been to got as iar
as possible away from the system upon
which lor twenly-fotir years the treasury
had been most successfully conducted by
republican administrations. Even the
old method of book-keeping was not sat
isfactory and a change was made in the
way of keeping accounts. In further
pursuance of iho new ' 'reform" dispen
sation the old-fashioned term of the
monthly debt statement , with wliieh the
people had become familiar and perfectly
understood , was abandoned and a new
form took its place whicli nobody com
prehended , and which by really mHrop-
resettling the actual condition of the
Irensury confused or misled the public.
Then , although the democracy had boon
vigotoiisly declaiming against a surplus
in the treasury as u temptation to extrav
agance in the government , and denoun
cing the republican tiarty for allowing
great balances to accumulate in the
treasury the surplus when the demo
crats went into power was in round num
bers only $20,000,000 the new treasury
ollii'ials set to work to build up the .sur
plus , and in ten months had increased it
to $80,000,000 , , at the end of which time
llicy ventured to make a call for bonds.
Thereafter calls wore made which up to
last July aggregated $ ril,000,0)0 ) ( ) , but
without impairing the ttoasury balance
which a year Deforo they had protessed
to regard as pregnant with danger.
Jt impossible to say how much
longer the process of accumulation
would have gone on had not the hoard
ing mania of Mr. Manning been dis
turbed by the Alornsott resolution. The
requirements of that measure , modified
by the senate , did not pass into law by
reason ot the "pocket veto" of the presi
dent , but the facttiiat it unmistakably
voiced the sentiment ot a majority of
congress and of the people had the de-
.sired effect , and calls for bonds came
promptly. This action was not only a
surrender of the treasury , but in its re
sults , which have had none of the ill
otfects predicted by'those who opposed
such aetion , has vindicated the wis
dom of tlio popular judgment. It
appears , however , that now tlio treasury
has encountered another obstruction , and
it leaves the regular course to try an ex
periment. The last call for bonds is sim
ply an invitation to holders to send them
in for redemption at any time before the
middle of September. The explanation
by the acting secretary of this course is
that ho thinks the banking system is un
favorably affected by the forced calls.
The banks have quite 75 per cent of the
three per cent bonds not called on deposit
in tlio' treasury to secure circulation , so
that when a call is made it falls to the ex
tent of about three-fourths on the bonds
of Iho banks. These institutions do not
desire to surrender their bonds , and some
of them have not done so , although inter
est lias ceased. Such banks make the
point that having complied with the law
in depositing interesl-bcarins securities
as a basis of circulation , it in a matter of
no concern to them that , by no act of
theirs , these securities have ceased to be
interest-bearing , and they maintain that
the government cannot deprive them ot
n circulation which was obtained on the
basis of a lawtul deposit. Some sticli
complication as this was apprehended
at some stage in the pro
cess of redeeming the bonds , but
J obviously the attitude of the banks in as
suming that called Lends upon which in
terest has ceased are still good as security
is not tenable. However , the experiment
of the treasury in inviting the surrender
of bonds for redemption may under the
circumstances not be ill-advised ,
though the probability of the result
being satisfactory is not very great. It
is verv certain that there will bo no re
sponse from the banks , and there doesn't
appear to bo any good reason why other
holders should bo expected to voluntarily
give up these securities. The result will
bo awaited with a good deal of interest.
WHILE the Omaha exposition will
doubtless surpass any previous effort of
this kind west of Chicago , it is to bo
hoped that those of our wealthy citizen , *
who possess works of art will put them
on exhibition. There is literally no risk
in so doing. Every possible precaution
has been taken to guard the exhibits in
the art department against accident and
trespass. Lot Omaha show for
once that she is not only enter
prising nnd progressive , but has
already acquired culture nnd re
fmenient equal in many respects to the
old cities of the oast. In Cincinnati , Chi
ongo , Cleveland and other cities men of
wealth and taste have time and ugait
shown tholr nubile spirit by freely putting
on exhibition costly paintings , statuary
and other works of art. In most of these
cities Iho exposition buildings are m
safer nnd uro not belter guarded that
that of the Omaha exposition. Mr. ( >
W. LiniHirer has set an example worthy
of emulation. Ho has placed his onllro
collection of paintings and bric-a-bra
upon exhibition. The KounUos , tlu
Woolworths , the Dowoys , the Reeds , Pop
pletons , Hamges anil other lending citi
/.Otis who have art treasures at thoi
homes , should not hesitate to give the
people an opportunity to view and ad

It is proposed In England that the jubi

phonography , should bo held toward the

although Rich , Byron , ( iiirnoy , Odoll
and Taylor elaborated very excollot't

reserved for Ibaao Pitman , of Bath , now
a veteran nnd by many regarded ; w n
phonographic crank , to lasuu in l3 l > ? the
most purfc.ct &eientilio principle of
plionogrnphlu shorthand writing ever
given lo thu world. Pitman dis
carded the UBO of moro arbitrary signs
for the representation of human sounds ,
nild invented a system by which nil
sounds should bo represented by n sysle-
inalic , If notscienUlio. process of record.
Tills system has been Improved by Amer-
loam , 'such ns Graham , Hell , "Ben" Pit
man nnd Mttnson ( the Ins ! probably tlio
best of ill , ) until It may now bo sniilthat

The arrest and imprisonment of Barn -
n urn's so called "bearded Indy , " on the
charge of disorderly conduct , were re
ported 3 elorday. 'Today Iho case was
called up in Iho Jefferson Market police
court , and had a somewhat peculiar end
ing. It came out in the examination that
about Unco months ago the same per < im
had been arrested by a detective attached
to the Twentyninth"precinct , for drunk
enness , and examined under the name of
Madame Augusta , and discharged , and
that the detective who arrested he , ' was
reduced to a patrolman , it Is said , for a
misdemeanor i connected with the case.
Since then she has boon frequently ob
served in the parks nnd on the streets
tiding In n disorderly manner. She got
imrtieulnrly offensive Thursday night in
Union Square and n pnik policeman took
her into custody.
When the case came up this morning
the first testimony submitted was a.
deposition by Dr. Thomas Bagwell , the
nrison physician. It reported an ex
amination which ho had made of the
prisoner yesterday , in accordance with
the order of the eo'iitt , and declared that
the prisoner was a man. When the court
had tccovered irom the effect of this an
nouncement it asked tlio accused , who
had been arraigned under the name of
Bernardo C. Borrian , what .she or ho had
to say for himself or herself.
Berrian , who was dressed in a neat
black dress , a black straw lint And veil
and had long black hair hanging down
his back ; protested vehemently against
the finding of the doctor. Finally Justice
1'ord said :
"Well , now. sir or madam , are you a
man or woman ? "
Ben inn considered for awhile with his
eyes on the lloor. then he said simply ; ,
" 1 don't know. "
The court ordered him to be dressed
in male attire committed him to the
Island tor three months in default of $300
bonds for good behayior.
Berrian has a remarkably thick black
board of about two days' growth , lie
carries about with him a. pair of sur
geon's scissors , with which he keeps his
hirsute ornament closely trimmed down.
Since he has been in jail , however , he
has1 not been allowed to use. the scissors ,
and his appcaranee vns somewhat start
ling when ho cnmo into court. His voice
is a woman's , his face is oval and not at
all coarse , and his hands are small and

Boston Beacon : When Boston was
Fanny Kemblo's home , and her summers
were spent here and therein rural Massa
chusetts , hho engaged n worthy neighbor
to bo her charioteer during the season of
ono of her country sojotirnimrs. With
kind-hearted loquacity iic was beginning
lo expatiate on the country , the crops ,
and Ino history of the people around
nboul , when Fanny remarked , in her
imperious , dogmatic fashion :
"Sir , 1 hjuo engaged you to drive for
me , not to talk to mo. "
The farmer ceased , pursed up his lips ,
and ever after kept his peace. When the
vacation weeks were over , and the dame
was about to return to town , she sent for
her .John and his bill. Uunning icr eyes
down its awkward columns , she paused.
"What is this item , sir ? " said she "I.
cannot understand it. "
And with equal gravity ho rejoined :
"Sass , ? . " > , 1 don't otteti take it , but when
1 do I charge. "
