NKW Yonic , July 2.-lSppdal to the BEE. |
The Jewelry trade Is well adapted by reason
of its nature and necessities to servo as an
' Index to the general prosperity of the whole
country. No trade Is more affected by good
crops and an easy money market , and none
- > reflects more quickly the depressing Influence
of hard times. During recent years retail
\ ( Jewelers have displayed more conservatism
f In purchasing their supplies than formerly.
Instead of laying In largo stocks , some of
Which they would bo obliged to carry over
from ono season to another , they have alined
more to carry only such quantities as the
needs of their customers would seem to war
rant. The result of this policy was apparent
In last spring's trade. Stocks throughout the
. United States had become pretty well de
pleted and as a consequence the sales by
1 manufacturers and Jobbers exceeded those of
' one year ago tor the same period. A
quickened demand has tended to create a
. , feeling ot confidence all round. This , too ,
In the face of the fact that retail trade In the
BDrln | season Is of a trifling and ephemeral
Character , seldom lasting long -than five
' or six weeks. Two Important failures at
- Chicago , one the Clapp & Davles affair , the
other the Webcr-Kosenkranz , shattered con
\f \ fidence for a time , but the elfect was not far-
'
. 'reaching nor lasting. Both failures were
pretty bad ones , the Clapp & Davles espe
cially. Now England manufacturers were
bit the hardest , but while the aigrogate loss
was large , It was so divided up among many
firms that the shock was not as serious as ft
otherwise would have been. No trade In the
country Is more prone to give long credits
and take chances on doubtful customers.
Juno 20 usually marks the opening of the
fall and holiday season on the part of manu
facturers and Jobbers. Then the cheap
Jewelry manufacturers from Providence , the
Attleboros and other parts ot Now England ,
and the gold poods manufacture-is from New
ark ana elsewhere begin to drop Into New
York with completed stocks of now designs.
to moot tbo Jobbers and agents and place or
ders for July and August delivery. It Is
fully a month earlier than there Is any ne
cessity for , but the custom Is ono that has
been observed for years , and Is likely to con
tinue Indefinitely. The jobber ? , almost
without exception , Insist that tlio season
* opens fully thirty days or even forty days
r 'earlier than It should by good rights.
> f " Maiden Lane Is the center of the Jewelry
trade of the United Statos. A careful can
vass of the leading jobbers and agents reveals
the fact that stocks on hand are smaller than
usual at this season and the leaders of the
( "market almost unanimously look forward tea
a fall trade that will exceed In volume that
tor any like period for five years past , and
propose at the outset to place orders accord
ingly with the manufacturers. This will be
' 'the case especially In the cheaper grades of
Jewelry. Importers ot fine watch movements
are also placing larger orders.
It Is a noteworthy fact that the low class
plated goods como chiefly from New Eng
land. The home ot the shrewd , bargain-
driving Yankee Is also the home of brass
Jewelry. Before and during the civil war
. .colossal fortunes wore coined there In this
branch ot the trade. Goods , so cheap that the
cost of production was a mere trifle when con
trasted with the selling price nnd profit
, a.jaargln , were dlrposod ofln enormous nuan-
i titles. Of late years all this Is changed. A
f -freer play of the competitive principle
v together with Improved and cheapened
methods ot manufacture have altered the
conditions and reduced profits to the bed-
rook basis , until the manufacturers of cheap
tj.Jewelry has come to mean meagre profits at
tended by a deal of uncertainty and consequent
quent rlbk. Many ot the wealthiest houses
gv I o-this line in Providence and the Attleboros'
i nave made little of late.
fl/J Newark and New York City manufacture
' the greater part of the gold Jewelry. Only
last week the plant of a noted manufacturing
concern engaged in'Uils branch was removed
from Providence to New York , for the rea-
/Dtflon as stated by the owners that some 'dlfll-
.culty was experienced at Providence In pro
curing the proper complement of skilled
. operators accustomed to making up fine gold
< ' "work. At New STork this trouble will bo
eliminated. / /
T It would seem as though bod-rock prices
I for cheap watches have yet to bo readied. A
* new company backed by bin capital will
Soon place a cheap time-piece on the market
In competition with the present low erade
movements and an already established New
England watch and clock company threaten i
If competlon Is carried too far , to retaliate by
Offering the Jewelry trade of the United
States nlckle watch that will retail at S3 , with
M fair margin of profit for the manufacturer ,
jobber and retailer. Like nearly all the new
' i Ideas In jewelry and time-pieces the idea for
. the first low priced watch manufactured In
America was stolen from the French. II
, ; would appear as though the superstition
[ . about the need of high priced watches was
.f st disappearing. .

Mr. Herb Rothery Is in receipt of the fol
lowing epistle from Tommy Warren , the
Minneapolis featherweUht , In which ho
"crawfishes" with much eclat. But here it is :
MINNEAPOLIS , Minn. , June so. Dear Sir :
Just received your letter and hasten to an
swer. If you will guarantee me S350 to spar
fifteen rounds with two-ounce cloves at 118
pounds weight twelve hours before the lighter
or at rlne side , match to come otf In three or
four weeks under your solo management , I
will be on band. If you guaiunteo mo S" SO ,
win or lose , send on articles of agreement im
mediately and I will deposit $200 with some
responsible party to be on hand at proper
weight. Answer at your earliest conveni
ence. I must have made a mistake if I said
I would fight Miller for S300 a side. I meant *
nothing less than 8500. light to take place
halt way between hero and Omaha , winner
to take all the gate monoy. Either will suit
me S350 for fifteen rounds or S500 and the
gate , to the winner of a fight to a finish ,
light to take plnco half way between hero
and Omaha. 1 ours Respectfully.
TOMMY WAHHEN.
Mr. Hothery Is determined that a go shall
be brought about between Miller and Warren
at any cost or hazard. Warren In his last ef
fusion maintains his reputation as a schemer
and a "crab , " as In a former communication
ho distinctly specified his willingness to
come to Omaha ana do battle with Miller for
SBOOasldoand the gate receipts. However ,
notwithstanding his parsimonious actions ,
ho Is game to the core , and Miller would do
well , exceedingly well , if he should be able
to even make a draw with him.

nn interview ho emphatically denied the
statements about Blnlnc , ciedltcd to him In
a New York interview , published In this
morning's paper. Said ho : "I was not In
terviewed In Now York. What appears In
the morning papers was manufactured. I
was In a room in the hotel where n
number ot gentlemen were talkIng -
Ing , but I was not interviewed.
I never said Blalne wnsnota candidate for
the presidency. 1 don't know whether he Is
a candidate or not , and certalnlv would not
make such a statement unless I did know.
Nor did I sav anything about his giving him
self np to literature. Blalne and I are the
best of friends , and It Is unkind to put
words In mv mouth th.i t I never utteied.
Some politicians sav that lie may not have
the same element of support In New York
that ho had during the Inst campaign. As
regards Interviewing all I nsk is to bo let
nlone. "

what were the niolyei ( .Of President Cleve

"The whole affair Is- church party move

Mormon church to obtain statehood. Tlio
earnest private solicitation ot many of them
failed to Induce a single non-Mormon to bo-
tome a delegate. All non-Mormons In Utah
oppose the movement as Insincere and
fraught with serious consequences , if suc
cessful. "

constitution adopted In 1S8J has been made

'WorklnRincn nt Leisure.
WASHINGTON , July 2. | Special to the
HEI : . | A politician engaged In tlio banking
business In New York state was asked the
general opinion of his confreres upon the
Saturday halt-holiday law which has just
gene Into effect In Now York , lie replied :
"Tho opinion , as far as I can judge , Is unan
imous In condemnation of the act. It Is the
biggest fraud over perpetrated on the Amer
ican people , from a llnanclal standpoint. "
"flow do you make that out ? "
"Tho law was made ostensibly in behalf of
the laboring people. Now what Is the result ?
There Is not a fanner In tun state who gives
his "help" a half-holiday on Saturday , sim
ply because his work cannot bo neglected In
order that the law may bo obeyed. Then ,
too , manufacturers who close up at noon on
Saturday do not pay their em
ployes for the lost half day. If
laborers fall to work they lose just
so much. "
"Yes , but how does It affect the banks ? "
"It Is beneficial to banks and bankers ,
because it Increases their receipts , or will
do so just as soon as It goes into full
effect. The law provides that when a piece
of commercial paper falls duo on Sunday ,
it must be paid on Monday , provided It was
made after May 25th. It Monday happens
to be a local holiday It will not become duo
until Tuesday. In other words a note or
acceptance falling duo on Sunday may ,
In certain cases have five , Instead of tlueo
clays of grace. Now a banker thinks tune
too precious to spend in the examination of
almanacs to see whether throe , four or live
days are to bo added to a note , consequently
he compromises on live days , In oidur that
he may not lese Interest for a day by Inad-
vcrunco. It is plain therefore that the
banker comes out ahead , for hereafter all
paper offered 'or discount is figured at five
days grace and although it may be duo In
three ( lavs from its face maturity , the bor-
lower will certainly have to pay the discount
for the lull period. The law does the bor
rower no good , but It increases the earnings
of the 'bloated' capitalist every time. "
Flnfjs and Flagellation ,
WASHINGTON , July 2. [ Special to the
DEB. ] Although the fcellnz which followed
the order of Adjutant General Drum for the
restoration of the captured Hags to their
original owners has subsided In a measure ,
there still exists a belief among the most
trusted advisors of the president that ho has
sounded his political death knell by his haste
to approve the order which excited so much
commotion among the men who fought on
the union side during the conflict which
preceded the capture of the flags. Within
the past few days your correspondent has
talked with a great many ot the warmest
'supporters of the president upon the sub
ject of the flairs , and he has found that they
are of the opinion , almost to a man , that
thousands of votes have been lost to the
democratic party through the failure of Mr.
Cleveland to see the sentiment which under
lies the feeling ot resentment towards him.
One of the men who has been foremost
in aiding him to reach the pinnacle
upon which ho stands said to-day : "It Is
my opinion that the president could have
recovered from the blunder If ho had gone
the right way about it. But ho neglected his
opportunity and now 1 fear that he must
suffer tin ) consequences. If he had rescinded
ttio order with the explanation that he had
ruadUrA mistake in not looking morocare-
fully.Jnto the effect of the suggestion ot the
secretary ot war ho would havit been all
rlcht. Hut Instead of that he very unwisely
stated that the law alone prevented him from
carrvlng out his original intention and to
cap the climax he , for the lirst time In the
history of the country , recognl/cd the con
federacy ofllclally by referring to the 'con
federate states. ' The wnole affair is exceed
ingly unfortunate for the party , and the
republicans will doubtless be great gainers
by the Incident. " _
Illc Political Talk.
WASHINGTON , July 2. ( Special to the
BKK.J The Hoffman House cafe in New
York Is the Mecca to which ail politicians
seek to journey whenever they visit the me
tropolis. Hero you may find at any hour of
the day parties of prominent nion who sit
arouna a small table discussing men and
events. Now York politicians naturally
predominate. A day or two ago your corre
spondent found there half a dozen men who
are prominent in the affairs ot the state and
nation. Among them was the Hon. "Dan"
Lockwood of Buffalo. Dan used to bo known
as the "great nominator. " 1I it was who
presented the name of 0 rover Cleveland to
the democrats of Erie county as their
candidate for sheriff. Again , about
ton years later , when the same party
was casting about for A suitable
candidate for mayor ot Buffalo , Lock-
wood sprung to the breach , mounted the 103-
truin and called attention to the merits of
Giover Cleveland as a candidate for the may
oralty. Once more In 18S3 , in the Syracuse
convention of the democracy , the fame and
character of Grover Cleveland was set forth
to the democrats of the empire state , and
lockwood was the man who filled the bill.
The following year in Chicago his party was
looking about lor a leader , when Lock wood's
handsome face attracted the attention of the
multitude and every ear In that vast assem
bly was strained to catch every word as ho
eloquently touched upon tno life and public
services of ( trover Cleveland just as ho uro-
sented his name as the candidate ot the dem
ocratic party for the presidency.
Dan Lockwood's advocacy of Grover
Cleveland In four different campaigns un
doubtedly aided him materially in winnlnu'
every one of them. Dan Lockwood has been
regarded as Cleveland's mascot and without
Lockwood In the van the paity In Now York
would bo disheartened and sad. Of course
Dun lias been 'rocognUed" for his services
Oil , yes. Ho was appointed about a year
ago to the position of United States district
attorney for the northern district of New
York. If ho works hard and Is economical
In his expenses he can perhaps make 83,000
or 33,500 out of this office. Ho has never
been seen in Washington since tholnaugura-
tlon proceedings in IfeS1 ; .
The party in the Hoffman housn had been
discussing politics , and the opinion had been
freely expressed that Cleveland was anxious
for a ronominatlon. I asked Lock wood If ho
would again play the role ot "nominator. "
His reply was terse and emphatic. Ho said
simply :
"Young man , 1 am not In that business at
It was the way he said It that carried the
force of tbo words right home. His tone
surprised everyone present , and for n mo
ment no one spoke. Then one of his best
friends rang the boll for cigars , or something
of that kind , and another reached over In
my direction and whispered , "Mr. Lockwood
believes that thn piesldentgave him his pres
ent appointment because be know that Dan
would not disobey his order , and would not
mix In national politics while holding a
federal office. " .
A Femal Monte Chriato.
WASHINGTON , July 2. ( Special to the
BKK. ] "No one who has not had prac
tical experience has any idea of the various
duties which n consul representing his coun
try abroad Is required to perform , " said Dr-
St. Clalr , the able chief of the consular bu
reau of ( ho state department , to your corre
spondent yesterday. "Not only have they to
look after the commercial Interests of tliolr
country but they have to attend to some of
the queerest kind ot requests from their
countrymen at home. It has more than once
been the case that a consul has been applied
to purchase peculiar' animals found In tbo
country.to which U ) y are accredited all the
way fioa Elephant * to rot kind * of llurcU.
} f
Very frequently they are asked to collect a
number of specimens of sea shells peculiar
to their part ot the world. Only a short time
ago wo received a request from n gentleman
In Kentucky asking that the consul at Barcelona -
lena , In Sushi , procure tor him n flno speci
men of the native as * , for breed
ing purposes , the gentleman being
under the Impression that that
animal attained to a largo size In Spain. The
request was forwarded and the Kentucklan
has since received a very fine animal of the
donkey kind. Hut the more frequent requests
outside of the purely commercial duties of
tlio consul are of a purely private r.nd family
kind , It a son , daughter , husband or wife
goes astray , or if information Is required ot
the whereabouts ot a person of any decree ot
relationship to the Inquirer In a foreign
country , application Is at once made to the
representative ot this countrj nearest to the
place whore the missing person Is supposed
to bo and the consul Is asked to look him up.
Some very .startling romances have been un
earthed In this way through the consular
agencies. That was n strange case which
was unearthed some time ago In Florence ,
Italy , by Mr. A. Schnylor Crosby , who was
then United States consul at that place. Ono
day ho was conducting a party of Americans
through the principal places of Interest In
the city and among the places visited was the
Insane asylum. As the party was going
through the wards one of the Inmates of the
Institution suddenly called out toMr.Crosby :
"Oh , sir , you are an American , are you not ?
For God's sake come here and listen to my
story. " Mr. Crosby wont to the cell
from whence the piteous appeal came
and saw behind the bars a woman
much emaciated but apparently sane. He
listened to her story and after making In
quiries set himself to work to procure her ro-
loase.ln which he succeeded after a great deal
of trouble. The woman's story was as fol
lows : She was born In Mobile , Ala. , of
wealthy parents , and being attractive In ap
pearance she hail a number of suitors for her
hand In marilago. Ono day an Italian came
to the city. He was handsome and wrote the
prefix "count" befoiehls name. Ho soon got
hlmsolt Introduced Into the best circles of
Mobile society , and by his pleasant and
courteous bearing became a great favorite
among the ladles of the place. Ho became a
constant visitor at the house of Miss , the
subject ot this story , aud Intimacy began to
ripen Into love on the part of tlio joung girl.
Her parents did not approve of tlio match ,
but the handsome Italian portrayed In Lowing !
ing terms the wealth of his affection for her
and the beauties of the lovely Florentine
home which he wished her to become the
mistress of. At last his entreaties wore suc
cessful and the young girl was married to the
"count" secretly. When the girl's parents
heard of it they were enraged. Her father
refused to have anything to do with her , and
instead of giving her the fortune ho had In
tended to bo hers , settled on her the sum of
2,000 a year. The young couple started for
Kuropo , but It soon became apparent to the
wife that her husband was not only not In
love with her but that his only object In
marrying her was to procure her fortune ,
and having failed in that , through the anger
ot her father , had no more use for her.
Shortly after reaching Floienco. the "count"
had three physicians called In and they made
an examination ot the young gill , much to
her surprise and terror. On the following day
n covered wacon came to the house and she
was told to get Inside. When she refused
she was seized trom behind and rudely
bound and bandaged. She fainted and when
she rccoveied she found herself In the insane
asylum. There she remained for over two
years until she was found by Mr. Crosby.
Meanwhile the husband who had caused her
incarceration , wrote homo to her patents
that she was very sick and described the ex
pense she was putting himself to , In order
to take proper care of the girl ho loved so
well. The father was too proud to allow him
to boar the full expense of his daughter's Ill
ness under the circumstances , and the an
nual remittances continued to como along.
The "count" paid S500 to the asylum , tor the
keeping of his wife , nnd lived in good style
upon the remaining $1,500. As soon as the
news reached Mobile , of the true state ot
affairs , however , the remittances suddenly
stopped and the young girl wait iccelved
homo with open arms. "Tho "count is still
living In Florence but has had to resort to
other means of earning a living.
A Queer Case.
WASHINGTON , July 2. ( Special to the
BEK. ] A peculiar case under the naturaliza
tion laws came under the notice of the state
department a few days ago. It is a question
yet to bo decided whether the person most
Interested can be punished for obtaining
American citizenship under false pretenses.
Some live years ago a man who was born In
Jlorrocco came to this country and has lived
here the greater portion of the tlmo since.
When the period of live years' residence had
been accomplished he applied for and ob
tained tull admission as an American citizen.
Seven days after he procured a passport from
the state department , setting forth the fact of
his cltUonshlp , and then sailed for his old
homo In Morocco , where It Is his
Intention to remain , An American
citizens In a non-chrlstlan country is of
course not entitled to taxation by any for
eign power. Neither can he be taxed by the
United States so long as ho remains abroad
and holds his property abroad Thciefore
this man , by Ills residence of five years here ,
during which tlmo he Is receiving his educa
tion In Ins profession , acquired a paper
which will save him a sum equal to many
thousands of dollars in taxation , for himself
and his family and servants , which Is alto
gether a very profitable Investment for him ,
so long as the naturalization laws remain as
they now are.

A Model Police.
WASHINGTON , July a. ( Special to the
BEE.I If the new police regulations which
the commissioners of the district have pre
pared are duly enforced , life will be worth
the living In Washington. They will tund
to make this city a model one In every re
spect , where the weary may come nnd bo at
rest Everybody has at one time or another
bad the misfortune of living near a neighbor
with on Insane doslro for amateur poultry
keeping , and has had his early morning
slumbers disturbed by the vociferous cack
ling and crowlne of the hens and roosters.
Such sounds will bo heard no more within
the district's precincts , nor will the melodi
ous tinkling of the milk-wagon's boll arouse
the echoes of the 4-o'clock-ln-tbe-mornIng
air. The S. P. C. A. should protest against
the provision which makes the doc
liable to Instant decapitation if It
speaks to a fellow dog on the streets. Such
a rule will tend to prevent ttio dissemination
of knowledgu among the canlno race and
should be promptly discountenanced. Horns
and whistles of every size and degree re
ceive their quietus by this now code and the
peanut vendors and other street purveyors
must , if they cry their wares at all , do bo In a
subdued whisper. Even Mm newsboys-are
restricted In the ainonnt of lung powur they
will bo entitled to use In disposing of their
papers. Unfortunately there is no clause In
the iodp , as at present advertised , authoriz
ing thu killing off of the young man next
door who persists In practicing on the violin
at the most unearthly hours of the day and
night , nor of mu/.zllng the young ladj who
thinks she has a tine voice. The citizens arc ,
however , living In hopes that these over
sights will be shortly remedied by their pa
ternal commissioners , who bid fair to become
somewhat popular thiough these regulations ,
although some ot thorn are ludeod proper
subjects for mirth.

to the MUK.J Senator Mandursun Is at the
Arlington on his way home from a visit to
Hen : Perley I'ooro's old Now England
homestead "Indian 11111" farm. The sena
tor said lo your correspondent : "Tho object
of my visit WAS to find Rome papers that
Major Pooro had In his possession. 1
thoueht ho might hav sent tlium up thcru to
work at this summer and found them there.
The old fellow was a constant worker and
had sent his work on before him. "
"What do you think of the tall : of an extra
session ? "
"I don't think there will be one , " was the
reply. "I don't believe that our friends , tho'
the enemy can afford to call an extra ses
sion. " This next congress will have an. un
usually largo amount Of entirely new ma
terial among Its members and It would Make
seine litre to t down to work , It Is not
likely anything could bo done bo tore tin
time for calling the regular session , and tin
administration would have to go before the
the country with the ropord of having In
curred the expense of nn extra session with
out having accomplished any results. "
The conversation then turned to the Pnclfio
railroad Investigation and the Inlcr-stato
commerce law. . .
"Do you think , " the senator was asked ,
"that the Interstate commerce law will stand
substantially as It Is ? "
" 1 won't say as to that , but I do not bo-
llovotlmt the government having once com *
monced to legislate for railroad contortions
will relinquish their control. Of course
there w 111 be changes In the law from time to
time. It Is largely experimental now , but It
may bo that congress will enlarge the com
mission and extend Its power .so that It shall
eventually become n tribunal for deciding :
those questions relating to transportation.
It may grow until with n ceniial commis
sion , or court of appeals In Washington ,
there will be a number of subordinate or
local commissions established in dlllereut
parts of the country. "
"Do you think the fourth clause will stand
as It now Is ? "
"That Is a difllcult question. It has never
been given a fair trial yet. Tim commission
ers , with , us 1 think , some stretch of their
powers , have suspended it ; so its workings
have never yet been demonstrated. "
"What Is the news from Nebraska ? "
"Nothing , except that there Is wonderful
activity In business. In all my experience In
the west , and 1 have n tolerably extensive
acquaintance with that part ot the country.
I never saw such activity as wo have at
present , "
"Hut is It a healthy activity ? "
"Yes , I think It Is , for wo are getting such
a rapid influx of good people from older

20,000 people last year. "
