A iinJlctiLOirs proposition evolved in
the fertile brain of one of our cotompo

A BlOgT peculiar state of affairs exist ;
( n East St. Louis. In years gone ly
that town kept on borrowing money foi
rjniblio improvements with the cxpccta
tion that in the future it would bo one
ol the metropolitan cities of the west
i But instead of growing East St. Louis
'lias ' dwindled dbwn to a btraggllng vil
Ingo while its indebtedness has swollct
to enormous proportions. In additioi
to the heavy Interest on the principal

dollars is pondintr owing to a recent decision

in virtual confiscation of the homos ol

of the dilemma seems to bo for the clti
to go into voluntary bankruptcy ani
through a receiver make a sottlomoul

sents a sad example of reckless dis
counting of futures.

The arrest of several alleged m m-
> crs of the Brotherhood" Lo'coitiotlvo
Lhiglnoers , on the charge ? of being ou-
jagcd In a plot to damage and destroy
.he propcrty.of the Burllilgton .railroad
company by the use of dynamite , is
) oing commented upon by the rtcwa-
papers of Chicago and elsewhere in a
way calculated to impre&s the jiublia
with the belief that Ihcro ban really
) ccn such a plot , nnd that the men nr-
cstcd are guilty. The manager of the
Jurlington has not been sparing of
effort to oncdurngo this impression , and
.0 involve the officials of the in-olhcr-
iood in the alleged conspiracy.
This tray of prejudging the men under
arrest , nnd nf attempting to criminate
with thorn men whose character should
juard them against the slightest sus-
( ) icion of giving any countenance to
Muidulisin nud anarchist methods in any
form , w'ill bo cOlidcmncd by all fair-
minded people. It Is unquestionably
Lrue that the clicumstanccs appear tc
jo somewhat against ono or two of the
arrested men , but they may bo able to
easily clear these awny when they are
brought to trial. As to the officials of
Lho brotherhood whom it is sought to
implicate , they mo3t pointedly and vig
orously deny having any knowledge eli
( i plot of the character alleged , tuid as-
Sicrl that they have always been opposed
to vietloneo. In the prc&cnt aspect of the
matter their statements are at loa-st
, xs worthy of regard as those
of the manager of the Burlington , who
lias an obvious motive iu malting hi--
allegations as > sweeping as ho dare to.
Prompted by detecthes , who o budinui'-
it is to. present matters'in the \\orst
possible light , it is not dlfllcult to un
derstand that the Burlington manager
should conclude , even if ho were not
quite willing to do so , that the cntiic
brotherhood of locomotive engineers ,
from Chief Arthur to the la > > t imnibci
admitted , was iu a great conspiracy tc
destroy the property under his control.
People who are dibpo cd to Ifo fail
nnd just will reserve judgment regard
ing this matter until it bus been ju
dicially iiucsllgatcd , and especially
ill they discredit until disproved all
allegations involving the brotherhood
ns an organization or any of its trusted
olllcials. It is possible , and nol alto
gather improbable , that a judicial sift
ing will show that the alleged plot i'
more of a detective than a dynamite
The Colored Voter anil Democracy.
The democratic party will rocciie tin
votc-s of spmo colored men next Novcin
bor. There arc voters among the race
enfranchised by the republican parti
who refu&c to acknowledge the debt o
gratitude they owe to that parly , aiu
alnliato with the political organi/.alioi
that has never been others iso. than un
friendly to the negro as a race. Those
who do this are not a very numorou'
body , nnd they are for the moit par
fellows who want olllco. The fact tha1
the present administration has retaiuci
a few colored men in public positions
and appointed u few others to places ii
the ground upon which these colored
democrats rest their professed faith ii
the friendly disposition of the demo
cratio party toward their race and theii
hope of some time or other receiving
the reward of their support of deinoc
These colored democrats are alrcndi
making themselves somewhat conspic
uous. They are scon bobbing up here
and there with announcements of theii
adhesion to democracy. A few colorct
clubs have boon organized to labor foi
the democratic cause. Unquestionably
they will not fail to receive hearty on
courngcmont from the party managers
They may not bo allowed , to dip deeply
into the campaign funds , but there wil
bo no lack of promises to stimulate thofi
7eal. It is not Improbable that thoj
will make some converts , strange as i
is that any colored man of fair intolli
gpnco should vote the democratic ticket
The colored voter who allies himscl
with the democracy is not pnly n. po
lltlcal ingralo , but ho docs a wrong l <
his entire race. The moral effect of hii
conduct , even if it has no other consc
quonco , is damaging to the Cause in be
half of the rights of his race , denied i !
in nearly .one-third of the slates of the
union. The colored man who espouse ;
democracy , thereby condones , so far in
ho is concerned , the outrages that have
been CQinmltted against his people it
the south , constituting one of the mosl
repellant chapters In American politi
cal history. Instead ot the protcsl
which every colored man in the natloi
should utter , against the wiongs ant
abuses inflicted upon his race in tin
south , each ono who goes into the dem
ocratic camj ) virtually acquits the do
mooracy of all responsibility for its re
fusiil to do justice under the constitutioi
and laws to the negro. IIo aids the on
courngemont of such outrages us withh
the present your the country was givoi
an example of ut Jackson , Mis > ,3. , when
an organization headed and managoi
by democratic federal officials kop
every colored voter away from the polls
The negroes who by their labor un
willingly helped the confederacy , dii
less to the Injury of their race than I
being done by those who are at thl
time supporting the democratic part }
dominated ns it is by its southern wing
The colored voter who believe
that the democracy can ever bocoln
sincerely friopdly to his race , or wil
ever voluntarily concede its politico
rights , is the victim of delusion. Th
character , traditions nud policy of thn
party forbid its ever willingly doin ,
justice to the negro or feeling any lion
ogt concern for his interests or welfare
There is nothing more certain thai
that the permanent ascendency of lh
democratic party In the governmon
would mean the destruction of th
political right given the negro "by tl.
fifteenth amendment , which is 1101
practically a dead letter' in every soutli
crn state.
Didn't Know it AViiH
Our amiable neighbor on lower
Ins has a happy faculty of opening ii
mouth at the wrong tlmo anU puttlu
its foot in. Its attack on County Al
torney Slmoral , over the shoulder * c
Commissioner Mount , and .Its loud cal
for Mr. Simeral to push to the wall th
pifrchrtsew of'the county pool- farm lot :
hits its foremost champion , Council
man Ilasoall square between the
eyes. If our viudictlvo ncighboi
\vio ) has a bone lo pick with the count ;
attorney because th6 latter has 1 > C !
employed In a suit against it , hud taken
the trouble tq look into the records , 1 |
would have discovered that Isaac S
Hnscall is .the principal delinquent ii
the county poor farm lots. Mr. Unseal
only paid twenty-live dollars apiece or
most of these lota and might bo made
to forfeit what ho has paid , but we
doubt whether Mr. Slmoral , or anj
olhor attorney , could compel him It
plank down the casli for deferred paj
incuts unless ho was disposcel to do so
The truth of the matter is that most o
the purchasers of these lots cxpcctee
to realize n handsome profit 01
them without investing their owi :
money. The trivial payment which UK
commissioners1 accepted as first payment
mont was a bait to spoculatora , and this
short-sighted policy is chiefly respon
sible for the shortage in the count ]
ticnsury from these stiles.
Wo hope Mr. Hascall will sot out
neighbor right , in the interest of liar
mony. The public will accept an apol
ogy when advised that the \crdnn
cadet didn't know it was loaded.
Clerical Cramps.

who cither regarded the foes taken bj

This has been a peculiar abcrratioi

A royal feather cloak from the Sand
wich is - in

Washington Star. This clo.ik is com
puted to have cost in labor $1,000,000 ,
Jn the days when a Hawaiian bollc
wanted little clothing , but wanted thai
gorgeously colored , this clonk or mantle
would have boon considered of more
value , ivsthoUcUly : and intrinsically ,
than a shipload of Worth costumes , nnd
its happy possessor" might truly bii wild
lo bo in high feather. Since the natives
hnvo adopted wide trouserslawn-tennis
shirts and four-in-hand tics , its
value lies chielly in the traditions :
that surround it. The mantle , which
is semi-circular , is four feet loner
or deep , and it'is Hi feet wide at the
bottom , and 23 inches at the top whore
it goes around tlto neck. The entire
outer surface is made of feathers of fine
texture , giving the whole the appear
ance of plusli. The prevailing colors
are rod anel yellow or orange. The
body is decorated with largo figures ,
crc&cont-slmpcd , of either red or yellow
feathers. The upper and lateral bor
ders are corded and decorated with
alternate tufts of reel , black and yellow
The foundation is a network of elena ,
or native hemp , and to it are attached
by fine thread of tho.samo material the
feathers of fine birds found ejnly in the
Hawaiian island , and very rare thcro.
Recent writers have dbclared that the
bird is now extinct. The fcnthort are
woven in so as to lap each each other
and lie flat , forming a smooth plush-like
surfaeic. Thu inner surface is witlwut
lining anel shows the elena net
work and Iho ejuill ends of the feath
ers. The con ! of the upper margin it
prolonged so as to nerve as u fastening
nt the throat. The yellow feathers , arc
tained fi'om tlio Oo Uho and
ol or , , as-
stated , are of great valve , as the bird is
rare , very shy , and difficult to capture ,
and it hasbut. . n very small tuft of thc c
feathers ) upon each shoulder. The black
feathers are from the head and back ol
the s.imo bird its general plumage bo-
infr a glossy black.The Oo is caupht
alive by moans qf bird lime ; the yellow
feathers are then plucked and tlio bird
released. The reel feather * are from
the body and nock of the drcpanis coc-
cinoa , tlio most abundant birds of the
S.mdwhich Islands.
The Hawaiian Spectator , a newspaper
published in 1830 , refers to. this , or a
similar mantle , as follows : "Knwkeauli
has tho'Mams , or feather war cloak oi
his father , Ta-Moha-Moha.- was not
complctod'untll his reign , having occu
pied oightjn-ecoditigoncsin its fabrica
tion. A piece of nankeen , valued at
81.60 , was formerly the price
of live of tttho ( yellow feath
ers. By this estimate the value e > f
the cloak woulet equal that of the
purest diamonds in several of the Eu
ropean regnliti , and , Including Ihp price
of the feathers , ; iot less than $1,000,001
worth of labor was qxpondoel upon it at
the present rate of computing wages. '
A bunch of the yellow feathers called
hulu was received by the king from hii
subjects in payment of a poll-tax , and it
required many years to collect thu
material and niuuufacturc ono of these
mantles. Until re'cont years those
mantles were the royal robes of state
and considered , jtlio principal treasures
of the crown. Iny. European clothing has
entirely superseded them iitid they are
not now manufactured. A beautiful head
dress , for womeilj'1 called lels , wad made
of these feathora.
Another authority states that two
yellow feathord only are obtained from
each Oo , and those -are found under the
wings. When the much-prized feathers
are plucked the bird is sot at liberty ,
The price of the feathers , according tc
* his authority , was $1.60 for throe , anel
the tune occupied in making thn oloali
was estimated Jrom fifty to ono hundrct
lioxcs mill Itnskots.

doers in liberal doses. In tboso days it
was not uncommon to see or bear of sum
mitry vengeance overtaking a culprit ,
but of late years all UHMO relics of ' 19
have disappeared. Still somoUitng of n
similar imturooccurrod during tile noon
hour on Market street tlio otbor day
which caiibcd as much oxcitcmont for the
moment as an old-time lynching. It
was the spectacle of \\oman beating
another \\OIUIIH with a whip. The li'ily
wlio received the castigatioiij Miss Li/-

wieliler , Mrs. C.r. . Avliugton , sudden

winch the sisters did not catch , began
lajing the whip over Mis Lizzie's
shoulders and head. She wa-s too much
.surprised and frightfncd to knew what
to do , but her sister , MKs Ellen Ttynn ,
with more iirosonce of mind , told'her
to go into a store , which she did , with
tlio infuriated woman following her.

Mit.4 I'Mlen TJynn , thq sihter of the
lady assaulted , told the following story
of the trouble :
"My trouble , " she said , "was keeping
company with Mr. Arlington for over
two years before ho married this woman ,
whoso name was Mrs. Tyler. They
wore engaged to bo married , but fo'r
reaf-oiiH best known to ourselves the en

ton then married Mrs. Tyler , and my
sister saw no more of him. Wo always
Considered Mr. Arlington a perfect goii-

This , morning Mrs. Arlington wont down
to our uncle's place and complained
that my bibter was trying to get
her. husband nwny from her. Ho told
her that ho did not think it po-siblo ,
but that he would see about it , and told
her to call and boo him again. She
went away without making any throats ,
but he thought she had the whip in her
hand at Ihe time. Of collide wo are at
a UMS to know "why she should have at
tacked my sKtor , but it must have been
that she thought Unit ho was paying at
tention to my &ihter and it iniide her

California ib noted for its gigantic en

the Southern PaciJie coiupanv do not
miscarry , the corporation will have n
S2OIKOUO ) bridge across the Carquinoz
straits two yours hence. Engineer Tliom-
n of the Chicago Bridge company , in in
vestigating the feasibility of the scheme
and .T. S. Souther is making soundings
to ascertain" the depth of the channel
at various points. Ho finds the average
depth to be fifty-five feet , although a
maximum of 180 foot 1ms been found in
one place. The bridge will probably bo
ovorbno hundred loot above thosur
face of the water at high tide , so that
there will bo no interference with navi
gation. To accomplish this will
noccbiitato a high grade on
either side of the straits , probably
above fifty feet to the'mile. . The length
of the bridge will be between three
thousand live hundred and four thous
and feet , and there will bo Bovoral solid
piers to construct. Although this
bridge may not bo built in the time
specified it will soon become a matter of
necessity with the Southern Pacific com
pany and must bo constructed before
long. Trafllo was never so heavy on the
transfer boat , Solano , as it is at present ,
and the increase in business by tlio
now line into the Sonoma Valley docs
not tend to relieve the strain , as may
well bo supposed. Dy the construction
of the bridge the work of handling the
business of the Sauramonto division will
bo greatly reduced. Bolter time will bo
mudo , as the long waits for the transfer
boat will bo avoided and the transfer it
self will be entirely obviated. With this
bridge and the now double track now in
course of construction between this city ,
and Port Uostn , the railroad company'
will have splendid facilities.
Spiritual circles are still agitated by

been intrusted with. Dr. Louis Sclilos-
singer , the chief critic of the ox-collec
tor , has loft the encampncnt on the
other side of UIQ bay , whore Clarke Is
now handling the funds. Dr. Schlcs-
blugor was found at his olllco on Market
btrcet yesterday. Ho was angry and
warm , and was in the act of unpacking
a case of booka and papers which , until
a few hours provioualy , had constituted
the stock in trade of his branch business
on the camp grounds.
The criticised spiritualist , when scon
at Oalclund , .said :
"My religion teaches mo not to re
taliate In a vindictive spirit. All will
bo well in time. "
In reply to other questions ho said :
"My bonds are good , and a day has boon
sot when all nccoilnts will bo handed

August of thirf year. "
President J. C. Steele said : "Tho
alTnir is much to be regretted , but is in
no way the concern of the camp-moot

the Progressive Spiritualists. The
name of S. B. Clark figuring promi

and loaded up on a fairly good dinner.
Then Dlnwiddio , who could get no
work , was importuned by defendant to
stay around and do odd jobs about the
house. After sonjo consideration ho
did that. Flsk pleaded with him to ac
cept bomo clothes , his own being quite
shabby. Dlnwidttio drew the line at
clothes for a while , but finally , at Flsk 'a
urgent request , cut It and took the gar
ments As the years rolled by Flsk and

AN HX-ACTOU'y 1'AI.T , .
John Hall , an ox-actor nud formerly
the dresser of William E. Sheridan ,
George Wes ols and other noted trage
dians , was taken to the inwino asylum
at Stockton IhO other day. Ho is a con
firmed morphine and opium fiend , and
during the pn t few months lias made
himself a nuisance around the various
theaters. A short time after ho was
adjudged insane by the coinmibbionora
Hall appeared at the box ollico of the
Baldwin theater and asked the treas
urer for a dollar , stating Unit ho had
been declared insane and he wanted the
money to pay his faro to Stockton. IIo
explained tliat ho wanted to cure him
self of his vices , and ho thought ho
could got the best treatment at the asy
lum , .so lip coaxed Mrs. Mary McConnell
into making the complaint nguinst hiiiu
which she did. Hall , whose right name
is John JUggins , is a brother of the
Iliggiiib whoso wlfo. Josephine , stabbed
him to death in a Natoina btrcet lodging
house a couple of years ago.
A STUAXlli ; S'lOltY.
The complaint in a suit brought the
other day by William A. Nygh for Wil
liam G. Blunt against the Pacific Mail
Steamship company gives publicity to a
btory of a most revolting nature. Blunt ,
\\hoisaminor. claims $50 ,000 damages
for the terrible suffering ho endured.
Last March the boy took passage on
( he steamer Newport from Now York to
this port. The vo.\ago to Aspinwull was
uneventful , and the vessel made good
time. At Abpinwnll ho was transferred
to the cars of the Pacific Mail Steamship
company and was taken to Panama , lie
was then put on board the Acapulco ,
bound for San Francisco.
A very short time after the vessel left
port Hiuall-pox made its appearance
among the passengers. Telegraph io
dispatches to that ell cot wore published
but none in this city know the heroic
measures taken to prevent the spread
of the terrible disease. Blunt says that
when the steamer reached a desert
island in the Pacific opposite Acapulco
lie was forcibly taken from the ship
with a number of stricken passengers
ami placed on the island. lie had not
been suffering from the disease and had
given no bign of being infected. From
April 1 1 to May 0 he had to remain With
the binall-pox patients' , exposed to .the
malady in itn worst forms. The
weather was intensely warm during the
time he remained on the island , and he
had to ond'ire great hardships and
suffered great mental anguish.
This is a mo-it interesting suit , and
has had no precedent in this city for
some time.
Caused the \Vnr of 1 I2
St. Nicholas for July : It happened
in this wise : Two citizens of Provi
dence. lv. 1. , fell into a most unseemly
'discussion on account of the lawless
trcspassings of a pig owned by ono of
them. The aggrieved party owned a
very fine garden , in which it was his
custom to spend his leisure hours , weed
ing , grafting , and transplanting the
llowei-b and vegetables in which ho de
lighted. But often , as ho entered his
garden in the evening , his cars would
bo saluted with a grunt and a rustle ,
and the fat form of hN neighbor's pig
might bo scon making a hasty flight
from the garden in which it had been
placidly rooting all day ,
In high dudgeon the gardener sought
his neighbor and complained of the
pig's frequent visits , declaring that a
little time .spent in repairing the pig
sty would restrain the pig's roving pro
pensities. But to thib the owner of the
pig responded that if hi neighbor
would keep his rickety fences in proper
repair , the pig might take its daily air
ing without temptation , and the garden
would not bo endangorfil.
Repeated misdeeds on the part of the
pig fanned the smouldering fires of dib-
scnsiou into the flames of open hostility.
At last the crisis camo. The owner of
the garden , rising unusually curly ono
morning , discovered the pig content
edly munching the last of a line bed of
tulip-bulbs. Flesh and blood could
stand it no longer. Soi/.ing a pitckfork
which lay near at hand , the outraged
gnnlonor plunged its sharp tines into
the hapless pig , and bore the body , thus
fatally impaled , to the sty , \vhora it mot
the gn/.o of its owner an hour or two
later. Thereafter it was war to the
knife between the two neighbors.
Now , what had all this to do with the
war of 181U' : ' The answer is simple. The
two neighbors belonged to the political
party known as the federalists.
Through all the outrages that Great
Britain inflicted upon the United
States ; while seamen v.-oro being im
pressed , Amsrlcan vessels stopped on
the high seas , and while every possible
indignity was being committed against
the flag of the United States , the fed
eralists remained friendly to Great
Britain and contested every proposition
for the declaration of war.
But the democratic parly was eager
for war , and as British oppression Do-
came more unbearable the strength of
the democratic. Increased. It BO hap-
puncd that the election districtin which
the two neighbors lived had been about
equally divided between democrat' and
federalists , but the latter party had
always succeeded in carrying the elec
tion. But in 1811 the owner of the gar
den was a candidate for the legislature
on the federalist ticket. His neighbor
had always voted that ticket ; 'but now ,
with his mind filled with bitter recol
lection of the death of his pig. ho cast
his ballot for the democrat. When the
ballots wore counted the democrat was
found to bo elected by a majority of one ,
When the newly elected legislator
took Jus boat , his first duty was to vote
for a United States senator. Ho east
his vote for the candidate of the demo-
cats , who was tilbo elected by a majority
of ono. When this senator took his
) lace in the United Stales senate lie
i 'ound : the question of war with Great
Britain pending , and after a long and
bitter discussion It came to a vote. The
democrat * vote for war , and the feder
alists against JU As a result of the voting
ing , war was declared again by a ma-
jority.of ono vote.
