The prohibitionists of this congres sional district have called a convention for to-day. The purpose is to scan the republican ticket , and if any candidates appear thereon who are not avowed prohibitionists , they purpose nominat ing others in their place.

Ho has yielded to the importunities of many friends , and his gentle voice will no more bo heard upon the diamond.

An article appeared in an Omaha morning paper yesterday in defense of ho policy pursued by the head of the Ire department. "Budge' ' wants it distinctly understood that ns long us luyor Rohrcr is satisfied with what is oing on , no ono else has any business o make a kick. Ho says the lire do- lartment is conducted excellently. IIo icglccts to state that while Sowders and Sanderson got drunk and were lib- charged , other members of the do-part- nent get drunk repeatedly , make dis gusting exhibitions of themselves in jublic and finally land in the police tation , where they are registered under in assumed name ( Charley Ross is the mme on the police register of a "way up" flro fighter ) , and then the case is lushed up before it comes fo trial. 'Budgo" also neglects to state how tome of the fire laddies who "stand in , "go ip on "the row" and assault boys in heir teens and other similar actions. Llicso things all happen in our "excel- ently conducted" department. San- lerson must not leave the house while jn duty , although his su- ) erior tells him to go and got glass of beer , still this same superior can leave the house for two or hreo hours to net ns second to ono of , ho principals in a prize light. Another nember ol the department has a "day oil" whenever ho chooses to take one , mil gets gloriously drunk and drives urioubly down some of the principal streets of the city. This "excellently conducted" department is indeed a uodel. It deserves great praise , accord- ng to "Budgo , " but respectable citizens ail to discover anything particularly amiable connected with its present man- igement.

Officer Thomas gained a little un- ileasant notoriety yesterday. Ho was ipproachetl on the street by Dr. mends , and the latter , who had appar ently been drinking , began to speak abusively of the officer's wife , applying all manner of vile epithets to her. This was more than Thomas could endure , and ho struck Einonds across the face with his open hand. The latter per sisted in his abuses and Thomas struck dim again. Bystanders then interfered and the officer left the spot. There had been bad blood between the parties for some time. Emends was a former suitor for the hand of Mrs. Thomas , but his at tentions were not favorably received by that lady. It is reported that the doc tor tried on several occasions to make trouble between Thomas nnd his ntfianced , but was unsuccessful. After the couple were married. Emends made out a bill for professional services and put it in the hands of Ovido Vion for collection. When it was presented , Thomas waxed wroth , and stated that ho had never owed Einonds a dollar in his life , and that the latter know bettor than to present the bill himself , as it would win for him a broken head. The two met on the street yesterday , as stated , and Emends remarked that ho understood that the ollicer was going to kill him. Thomas denied over saying anything of the kind , but intimated that he had better not jjresent a bill. Emends became very abusive , and blows ensued. The officer immediately overstepped his bounds from a legal point of view , as the law distinctly says that no words can justify an assault , but the spectators say that Einonds did not get half his just deserts. His language is described as being most abusive and exasperating , as well as an uncalled for attack upon the wife of a respectable citizen.

Mrs. Mona Cainl , whoso Review article had iislrcd | ) the discussion , Is now being lionized , iut In reality she was anticipated a few ears ago by George Lcwh , In au article en- itled "Marriage and Ulvorco" In the Fort nightly Heviuw , signed by George II. Lewis , 'opularly ' the letter "H" has been dropped , coclcnoywlsc , ami ho Is called familiarly by everybody by his two minrjs only. 1 found lim recently cheerily walking through the groups of waiting clients in the immense- nanslon , once tno pataco of the bishops of Cly , wherein Is his suite of oniccs. "Vcs , " said he , adjusting his traditional eye-glasses and Insensibly gliding Into his veil-known persuasive tone , "I folio wed the lowspapcr discussion during my sliort vaca- ion and was most amused with the airy lothlngness which characterized the corre- pondencc. Few of the writers seemed to ipprcclato the gravity of the subject. " "In your extensive practice you must have md great experience i" Mr. Lews . "Some ( moder.itcly ) experi ence , certainly , botli of marriage failure and narital success. " "You have been concerned in ma ny dl. orco cases , down to your recent Dilko and Crawford and Lady Colin Campbell cases , vhlch seem to prove the iifllinative J" "Yes , perhaps several hundred that went to .rial , and many tnoro which were adjusted. " "Then you have happily Illustrated the ihraso Componcre lites'f" "Happily * yes. I always prefer to antici pate the court rooms. " "Then pit-Imps you can answer the qucs- ion. How about you legal cxperienco as to whether marriage is a failure ! " The failures are in a great minority These naturally mike noise and attract at cntion , while marital peace and happiness , icing unobtrusive , does not become sta tistical. " 'The recent newspaper discussion evolved mother question , whether the divorce laws should be amended extended * by parlia ment to meet the hardships of many married failures. " " 1 am fully on record ns to that Inquiry m my article , written at the request of Mr. E. Scott when he conducted the Fortnight ly Heview. Your question was debated thirty years ano , when the divorce act of Palmer- Uon's government was passing. Since then the decisions in our divorce courts have tried and furrowed the features of not a few of our English homes. Many injustices liave operated , notably on women , and class amendments must inevita bly bo introduced. Particularly , the position of women under the divorce law should be assimulated to that of man. I have in my article written thus : 'Divorce at present is a perquisite of the man. The law empowers man , hownvor monstrous his own maiital conduct may have been , to turn his wife into the street , and separate her from every intercourse with her children , or leave her to starve m the workhouse , if in a mo ment of weakness she forgets her marriage vows. Hut the woman , who has been sub jected to her husband's open and continuous adultery , even under the conjugal roof , is unable to obtain a divorce only separation unless he has been gullity of cruelty or two years' desertion as well as adultery. Our act in this respect displays blind ignorance of domestic tragedies. It is drawn with the selfish object of ministering to man's worse Jealousies without attempting to give woman equal claims over the fidelity of her hus band. I believe the time is not far distant when woman will raise an effective outcry against the abuse of the present system.1" "Practically what is your remedy for the mischiefi" "In addition to their present rights women ought to bo entitled to a divorce for cruelty endangering life , for two years and upward desertion without reasonable cause , for ths adultery of the husband committed In her home or elsewhere , if under disgraceful and aggravating cicuumstanccs , and for.tho con viction and sentence of the husband to live years and upward penal servitude for crime. " "What about insanity ! " "If incurable for two yeaos , there should bo divorce to cither party. " The interview was closed by Mr. Lewis turning to the consideration of another par liamentary Job , the huge papers as to which labelled "Ho Parnell-Times were - Commis sion , " on which matter ho is to be in the con duct of the homo rulers' side. There are not half a dozen men In Great Hritain who could give sounder opinions on the subject ns to whether marriage is a fail ure then Montague Williams. Ho held the most extensive practice us a barrister ever in the hands of one man in the London criminal courts for years. Now , owing to the failure of his voice , ho has become the most popular magistrate of the London metropolitan bench , and everyday has to deal with numerous dis affected husbands and wives. I called upon him and asked his ideas on the "Marriage a Failure" question. Said he ; "You are wrong in supposing that people who como to mo in court seeking separation arc of the lower classes. Women are nearly always the complainants. " "What power have you to right their wrongs ) " "For separation from bed and board I have powers Just as strong as those obtaining in the divorce court. The law was generally construed by magistrates that if a woman came into court and could show that her husband was guilty of cruelty and violence , a judicial separation should bo given and the husband ordered to * make an allowance of so much per week , in accordance with his means. At the saiqo time the husband was sent to prison. Hut I got hold of the act and read it through carefully. I conceived that it was not necessary to send the man to prison , for by so doing I should disable him from making the allowance to thn woman by stopping his pay. Therefore , if it can pos sibly bo avoided , I "do not send the man to orison , but I grant Reparation and allowance. This course I proposu , continuing until it bo appealed against successfully in the higher courts. " "Doesn't that make a dissolution marriage rather easy I" "No , not too much so. I exercise my dis cretion. Besides , us a'rule the women have children to maintalni'Hiid if they are subse quently proved to bo Jiving in adultery I im mediately stop the allowance. " "Do you considcr.hiatriago a failure among the poor of London'lJM "Yes ; very oftenJJut I am not prepared with a remedy. The worst cases are those of rash young people , clerks on small pay , who marry pennyless shop girls. They have not sufllcient to hvo upon. The man soon finds his homo uncomfortable. What was enough for one was not enough to keep the house up. Ho gets his wages , and instead of taking them homo ho Is tempted to spend them In the public house. "Then ho goes homo and beats his wife. Such uro a largo number of cases In which marriage is a fail ure. " "Would you suggest n matrimonial com mission to sit upon young couples about to marry ! " Mr. Montague Williams smiled. "No , " ho said , "not quite so bad ( as that. Hut every body would be doing good who should do everything in their power to btop these Im prudent marriages. " "What do you think of the state of people who live as married couples m the east end without being married ! " "Very bad , very bad. A great deal moro than half of the couples in the cast end .aw unmarried. In a largo number of these case * the men send their ivsmeti out to earn a llvlnp nt nlpht by Immoral means. Hero is another llugrant example where the lack of marriage Is adls- mnl failure. " ' In there no remedy ! " "None tliat I can sue. It U n terrible state of affairs without any remedy that 1 can "And with the tipper classes ! " "Iho law requires amendments. As it now stands It Is mudo by man for man. For Instance n man can pet n divorce from a woman for adultery , but a woman cannot divorce a man for adultery unions coupled with cruelty or desertion. When Judicial separations arc granted In the divorce court , Justice Hull or Haiinan generally makes out an order granting the woman alimony. " "Ho you think uiarrlaco a failure In the upper classes I" "I think , " said Mr. Williams , dodging the question , "that the upper classes often think so from the number of divorces which arc annually obtained by man and wife. The number of made-up or collusive divorces which arc obtained In the divorce court are remarkable. If husband and wife agree , as they so often Jo , on mutual divorce , nothing Is easier than to prove cruelty and adultery also , for the matter of that. 1 do not want to mention names , as It would not bo fair. Ono of the most open cases Is that of u well-known M. ! . , out the matter was hushed up. Tlio lady In question is the daughter of a duke , and is now a peeress. Marriage was cer tainly a failure there. " A HorcTlmmt or Coucti , If suffered to progress , often results in an incurable throat or lung trouble. "Hrowu's Hrouchlal Troches" give instant relief. KnterprlMnc Pai-Ninn Kcnortlna. San Francisco Chronicle : Ono of the most brilliant feats of French reporting is the following. It happened at the time when the great Traupmunti mur der case was agitating Parisnnd Franco and when everybody was pager for de tails. A reporter , who had the matter in hand , left Paris for Cornoy. where the father of Traupnmnn resided. Ho arrived , called on the justice of pence and the eommissairo de police , invited thorn to follow him to the mairie. took his seat in the judge's chair , and with unparalleled audacity , ordered the garde do chumpetrc to go and bring before - fore him the assassin's father. The of ficers did not say a word ; and the re porter had conquered them bv his air nnd demeanor. When the hither of Traupmann was brought before him , the reporter interrogated him us though ofllcinll.v commissioned to do so. The result of the cross-questioning was that the boy hud written to his father on the eve and on the day of the crime. "Mon sieur do eommissairo " the , says re porter , "please to go to the witness's house and seize these letters. " The functuary obeyed ; the letters were brought , and the reporter read them , found them full of evidence of Trnup- mann's guilt , copied them carefully , and with u solemn air. Then , , with respect , he handed over the originals to the jus tice of the peaceasked him to scnl them carefully , nnd keep them forthe further use of the court. The reporter put the copies into his pocket , milutod the gen tlemen , and left. It was one o'clock in the afternoon , nnd the train that was to bear his letter to Paris would not leave before evening. If he hunt his precious burden by that train it would botoolato for the morniilg edition of his pipor. Itositlcs , he met two other Paris report ers , who had just arrived , stud who would ( -non learn the iiows at C'ernay , and send it on to Paris at the same time ho did his report. What does he deV lie goes up to his brother reporters and says"I am dying of hunger , my friends. Let us breakfast together. You go to the tavern there and order a good de jeuner , with plenty of wine , you know , and I'll come presently. " The two re porters did ns ho bndc'them. while our friend jumped into a wagon , and had himself driven to the stationafter ; hard begging and giving money , ho was al lowed to leave on a luggage train , then about to start , caught a passenger train for Paris at a junction farther on , and arrived at the ollice of his prelate at night. He communicated his informa tion , and the iirst page , which was al ready "closed up , " was reset. The next morning eighty thousud copies were sold. The soft glow of the tea rose is ac quired by ladies who use Pozzoni's Com plexion Powder. Try it. About 12:30 : this morning Officer Mar tin , of the merchants' police , discovered two men in the act of burglarizing Moore & Kipllnger's cigar store. Draw ing his revolver ho covered them and marched them both to the police station. SPECIAL NOTICES. NOTICE. CJPECIAL advertisements , suchai Lost , Found , O To Loan , For Sale , To Kent , Wants.
