CjHe ) Special to Tin : Ur.n. | Wanderers
frt A nil lands nro now making tholr way
homewards , and , among them , citizens of the
United States must bo counted by thousands.
In iho course of a long ramble on iho conii-
ncntl have mot thoin every whore. Hut for
them ami the English it seems to me that
half the hotels nnd shows In Europe would
have to shut ui ) . The native population or
travelers from oilier nations could never
keep thorn going. This year they have
turned n stream of gold through all the great
cities of the continent from Paris to St.
Petersburg. Frenchmen go about
moro limn they used 10 do and
the Germans wcro always Inclined to
travel , but the two thurougly enterprising
and exploring nations are the Americans and
English. They alone understand the art of
truvol , kind In their own lands * they have
brought it to n degree of "perfection whlcli
leaves all othuRcountrios in a state of com
parative barbarism , It thu holds are moro
comfortable and cleanly than they used to bo.
it is cblefly owingto their influence. As for
clianljuoss , the English or Americans un
derstand where It is to be looked for ou the
continent. |
Hnro wo uro towards Iho close of 19SO , nnd
iho Italian * have not got so fur as lo pay re-
gird to common decency. They think
nothing of sullying nnd defiling their streets
or buildings. Even the churches are
not spared. Tlio other day , In St.
Murk's , nt Venice , I detected lhat
It was only too easy to doit. There is an
odltilis nuisance not far from the nigh altar
r\n/Ai'm / Interior of the oimpanllo is rendered
absolutely revolting by some sort of aboml-
na'.ions. In it not about tlmo that tno
Italians , with nil iheir cultivation , art , poetry
un < i alt the reatjif it , abandoned the manners
and customs of Iho'Fijl islanders. They are
10 polllo , all those foreigners , but their po-
hlonuss docs not prevent them from acling
In tlio presence of women In a way lhat. a
avago of decent instincts would feel
ashamed of. The other day , In going from
Bologna to Venice , Iho train broke- down at
n waysldn station. In a minute or two each
side of the line was covered with passen
gers , who seemed to think they
wcro in n campanile at Locarno.
1 I saw a crowd ot women
going up a hill lo nn old church. The men
almost blocked the way in some places , un
conscious apparently that there was any
Impropriety In their habits. There is
scarcely a street to bo found in Italy which
lees not rook with disgusting smells. Nor
is that all. The poison which is spread on
all thu newspaper and book stands irrc-
'aistibly suggested that there must bo sonic-
Chinjrradically wrong in the moral .sense of
ilio people. Publications of the vilest kind ,
with outrageous pictures , uro thrust before
jrou ut every corner. The Milan cathedral
la slirroum'sd by llttlo shops or klasquns for
Oier-ilo ol these wares. Continental writers
used to have the coolness to loll us lhat
it w.'s ' only English or Americans
who scribbled their names on statues or pub-
. ' lie buildings. That legiuid Is pretty well cx-
ploadcd , but the authors In question try to
keep it going. We , none of us scorn to ba
ablu to look at homo when wo are pointing n
moral at a neighbor's expanse. The beauti
ful uiarbk ) of tbo Milan Cathedral is covered
wherever It can bo reached with Italian
niAncs. Italian Harry seems to crcatly pre
fer a hammer and chisel to a pencil. Tbo
i/Tualllxus nro not spared. The pictures of
the Virgin and the Saviour are disfigured in
Mho manner.
' . ' 'hero is ouo thing certain , and that Is that
continental people generally have cause to
blcvsb the Saints in the calendar forjjho love
of travel which soi/.as the English nud
Americans In thu aiimmor. It Is very
U'.wly that the Paris exhibition
would have done well without
lher.f , reasonably well , for the French have
Hocked to it from all parts , but the Engllsh-
srialilng nations have not only supplied an
immuiiso contingent in point of numbers ,
but they have spent inoiioy at ul-ato which
1 Ins at least astounded oven thoao whoso ox-
pcUtlons of urf were iiiobt oxtravnganl. The
French cumo to sco fine things , but they do
'lit- buy man,1 of them any moro tlimi they
svpport one-half of the grand cafes uud
shops of the boulevards. John and Jona
than perform thut indispensiblo part of the
Wall , their turn may como next nud nt
larit thpy must return to their homos this
f year acknowledging that the French have
managed tholr exhibition with consummate
tosto and skill ; that everything about It ,
from the tower of Eiffel to the smallest
Voiding , Is moro beautiful and wonderful
t fau any printed description or any picture
\ar. \ , hive led the visitor to anticipate. Nbth-
IJg equal to it has over been neon before.
'There ' is something there that may tonch
every uutlotTa lesson. The arrangement of
' .J > i clussos and departments , the grouping of
44.lV countless objects exhibited , the decora-
rllioii nt tha building outsldo and

'Jc. M has to show all this could scarcely

tuicomplish , but tho.v can scarcely hope to

plcry for their exhibition than that wond-

French exhibition memorable.

An Olllo'al Count Thought , Nocrnsnry
to DetPi-inluo the * itciult.
ST. PAUL , Oct. 5. A special from Helena
says : Whllo the republicans are almost
ready to concede both , the governorship nnd
thu legislature to the democrats , they will
not do so until the ofllclul count Is mndo , tor
the reason Unit Iho result is close
enough to warrant them in claiming
at least the legislature. In several
country precincts no tnlly was made of votes
except that mndo by the judge ot election ,
and those are now valid nnd in the hands of
Iho various county clerks awaiting au ofllcial
count. According to law the ofllcial count
must ho mndo within 11 fteen days after the
election , or may bo made sooner if all returns
arc In.
On the face of the rclurns to-night the
democrats have elected the governor nud n
majority of the legislature , but by margins
so narrow that the full count may upset
cither. Individual republicans concede tha
governor to thu democrats , and nro half con
vinced that iho legislature is democratic , but
the republican press and state committee
concede neither. Republicans now claim the
legislature uy ono or two , while the demo
crats claim it by from llvo to seven.
A curious condition of affairs prevails
among the sporting fraternity owing to the
close election. Though Carter ( rep. ) is
lected to congrrtss by n majority of l.tWO
ivci * Maglnnls ( dom. ) , the democrats will

vcrtho latter. Hupabllcans who bet on

Us decided. Meanwhile about $100,000 re-
naiiis idle In the hands of stakeholders in
iclctm and Uutto.
HKLUXA , Mont. , Oct. 5. The Independent
lays : Returns rccelx'cd to-day glvo a deaio-
crallu n ajorlty of seven on joint ballot in ttio
legislature , with ono in doubt , which may
ucreaso the mujotity to nine. In several
counties iho vote is very close , but it is not

The International "I'nctrliii : Company
Violates tlio Injunction.
CHIO\OO , Oct , 5. The war between the
New York brokers who wcro squeezed in
hn pork corner and the Chicago board of
trade goes merrily on. In Judge Shepurd's
court this morning Broker Wallace Hied an
affidavit stating that the International Puck-
ng company had violated the injunction
served upon them yesterday. Wallace , it
scorns , had contracted to bay U30 barrels of
; ) ork of the company. In spite of iho order
of iho court restraining the delivery of the
k , the company ottered to make the deliv
ery , nnd upon Wallace's refusal of the tender
suld the pork at auction for $10.00 per bar-
col. The company then sent u bill to Wallace
for margins. All this was done In accord
ance with the rulcsof iho board.
Arguments for the dissolution of the in
unction against the board were hoard to
day and.ludgo Shophard issued an order dis
solving it. The New Yorker * .will take tbo
case to the appellate court.

WIMUNOTOS , Oct. 5. [ Special to Tan
Southern mombars. of the house of
representatives deny tliiit they intend to
miilto any specific demand for lealslatioii on
the part ot tholr section of the country.
With ono voice they suy It It their purposa
to work for legislation of cqunl Importance
to every section. Thov nro extremely anx
ious lo have Ilia lobacco tax abolished , but
they do not Intend to ask it us n considera
tion for voting In favor o'f any ono for
speaker , for the one , If lor no other reason ,
that they do not consider It tjocossary. They
say tlio ropnblloin party is pledged to do
this , and nil reports ubout demands they
make In the formation of committees
uro fiibricntcd.
rVlmost Immediately after tbo botiio Is
organised and thaconuiilttooi are announced
surely on the ilru cull of the states
'or the Introduction of * bills a bill
will bo Introduced to' ' abolish tbo
obaecotax. The Committee on Ways und
Means will bo expected to report this from
Is llrst regal ir meeting , tlio propriety of
Joins so has long since ooen settled. Its
consideration oy the tlonso will bo demanded
ror.y curly. As this will bj the basis of
fiiiuro action on the revenues and will in n
urge- measure govern a revision of the tartfl'
t is expected to uousuuic much time : but it
s expected to pass bjforrt any positive stoii
s taken on a tariff bill. Tnon Congress will
know exactly how much tarilt revision the
revenue of the country can stand. Kepab-
licans ganorally believe that the work : of
reforming the tariff will proceed by piece-
lueal thai is it will bo done by specific uillti ,
affecting only ono article atonce. . For
Instance sugar will ba worked upon by
itsolf. Thou , if it is' ( loomed advis
able to go further Into a reduction of
the revenues , otlior articles will bo
t.iUen up by themselves. Hills will ba intro
duced by the hundred oa every phase of the
tariff , thus going around the old wav of pro
ceeding with a general bill affecting almost
every article on the list. II the tobacco ta\
Is abolished there will not b < 3 more. than half
the present intitudo for work on tne eustoais
laws. If t..o sugar tux is removed the in
comes will bo reduced to abjutthc minimum.
General llrowuc , of Imlmnn , one of the old
est and most ialluunliul Aiombara of the
housi > , and an experienced member of the
committee on ways and mcinn , was the first
to ui vanec the idea of specific legislation oa
the tariff , and the suggestion la bblng almost
universally undorsjd. IJeytlie worlc as it
may , there will be no mpfeileni-iliy commit
tee hcnrlnira and lonir bills. s-
Politically speaking , it m.'ikos a great dif
ference whoso OK is gored. ( During the east
three congresses the democrats in the lower
house of congrojs h u-e run ; roughshod over
the minority. There never was saoh a-
tiling uiontluncd during tlio past six years as
minority representation , The republicans
took their medicine like brave man. They
simply warned the democrats that tlie indis
creet and unjust things wliluli ware bomg
done would return to them llkn broaj cist
upon the dead sea. The democrats snapped
their lingers and maiie wry f-ices at tlieir
friends In the minority on the other side of
the house , and run roughshod witti all sorts
of legislation intended to carry out demo
cratic principles which would have worked
great injury to tbo business interests of iho
country. There was not a single instance
In which the interests Of. the minority
were consulted. It ils true that
Speaker Carlisle , in his efforts to bo fair.
gave the republicans ap opportunity ; and
the late Suusct Cox oftca appealed to the
majority to give the republicans an oppar-
tunity to present their side of a case 10 the
country , although they wduld bo defeated
when it came to a .vote.
Tliis condition of affairs has changed
fiont. Every democratic member who comes
to Washington now talks about the "rights
of the minority , " and threatens the majority
in the Fifty-first congress with direful things
in event the minority is not given a repre
sentation. Tlieso domoerats havii wonderful
nerve. Colonel Gated , of Alabama , is the
only man wno has the frankness to say that
the republicans should conduct their affairs
with iwrtUan intent , but ho has in the same
breath announced that , the democrats would
llllibuator against any linul legislation in
tended to help the republican partv.
The democrats go so far us to even sugccst
that the Interests of thti democratic party
should bo considered in the UIUKO up the
committees , and that In some Instances dem
ocrats sliould bn placed at tha head of unim
portant committees. There ore a number of
democrats who ought to know bettor , and
who have had experience to lead them to
more profitable thinking , who oven go so far
us to BUCKOst that it is tlmo a regular
minority representation should bo established
in both branches of cougrcss. Thcro is
going to bo a lively time when the house
meets in December and organization is begun.
H Is now evident that tup1 democrats are
fully determined to ugrco upon a do-nothing
policy with the full Intention' of defeating all
general legislation of a psrtlsnn character ,
and especially to thwart tha'purposes of the
republicans. Every republican who arrives
announces that the time has 'come for the re
publicans to take tbo bull iiy the horns , in
augurate a system of rules which will enable
the majority to complete legislation , while
giving duo consideration to the minority ,
yield no point which will interfere with the
work before the republican party.
"Place the Indians iu huts -and houses in
stead of touts and keep thoin there and you
will have very little trouble from Indian
depredations , " said General TowiucuJ , com
mandant at the Fort Yates military post , in
conversation with your correspondent the
other day. General Townscud Is ouo of tbo
oldest and most successful Indian fighters
on the frontier. Ha la thoroughly acquaint

under any other shelter than that uffordet
by tents. The tepee kept the elements of
both summer and winter from the Indians at
that time , and it required but a few hours
notlco for a whole Indian camp to bo on horse

" I was recently with Chief QM when ho

WASHINGTON , Oct. 5. Theodore lloosuvolt ,
of the civil service commission , has submitted
to the full commission the report of the ox-
nminatlon made by him Into the management
of the Ualtimoropostolllco. The icportsays
during the last four there has bncu two
licml.i of the Baltimore poslolllco , Yoazoy ,
who hold oil I Co about n year and was then
allowed to resign , and hi * successor
the present Incumbent , Frank Urovvn.
Vtwoy was one of those products of the pat
ronage system whose antics would bo coiniu
wore It not for their deeply tragic effect
upon the public service and upon bonust po
litical life ; and great allowance should bo
made for 13rowu because of the condition in
which the otllco was handed to him by his
predecessor , for nil the evidence tends to
show that Voazcy's mliniiilslratlon can only
bo characterized as scandalous , it seems
likely that the habitual anu grossly violated
the law both as to nDpolntnieiils and remov
als. Ho certainly , during his year of
ofllcc , turned out four-fifths of the
employes and filled their places with
men , many cf such vile characters as to do-
morali/o the service. Of the original force
of the office about SO per cent have been
changed during the last four yours. .Most of
these chuuges uro duo to Yenzey. So do-
moralised was the olllco when Urown took
hold that ho wvs forced to dismiss over half
of Vcazoy's appointees. Even mure extra
ordinary is the fact that ho was ohligoU to
dismiss more limn one-fiflh of his own.
Ono rcMitt of the system is shown by the
seemingly universal payment of campaign as
sessments at election time. Almost all the
clerks who wcro questioned admitted ttify
had voluntarily paid last fall for campaign
purposes Bums varying from 2 to 1 per cent
of their salaries.
Jlr. Uoosvclt i-fcommcnds what he deems
the proper course of action for the future in
all such cases. If in the classified service an
appointing ofllccr has mndo a "clean sweep"
in an olllrc where ! K ) pur cent of the old em
ployes have been dismissed , or If ho has re
moved or is removing a very large
percentage of the employes , whether
bO per cent or a less number ,
but at any ruto ono so largo as lo raise the
presumption that the removals huvo boon for
political reasons , and if ho can give no
adcquato and satisfactory explanation , t'lon
ho should be > l joined to have violated the
civil service law mid should DO himself dis-
inissoJ , or his resignation requested. This
report has bsen forwarded to the postmaster
general by the full commission , who append
their approval.

The chief of the czar'8 secret police passed
through Herlln to-day on his w.iy to Kiel.
Ho Is accompanied by the Inspector of 1m *
perlal trains. The coir's special train , onca
owned by timprctis Kucculo , lies at the sta
tion hero , having como from Wlrballon.
There are swarms of Uusslau police here , at
Kiel and at stations along Iho proposed route.
Uusslnn troops line the rails from Wlrballcii
to AIou-ow. The precautions taken far
exceed those on the occasion of the foriuor
visit of the czar and lira duo to his Intense
fears of an attempt upon his life. The
crnrlnu loaves Copaniiagea October 12 for
ICoulgsbarg , rejoining the czacntsomo point
on the homeward Journey.
Under the pressing Inslstanco of Coiuit
Schouvaloff , the Itusslun amiiasnador to Ger
many , the czar will accord Prince Ulsmarck
the desired liitnrviow.
As soon as the promise of the conference
was received the sumi-ofUcml press was in
structed to deny the statement that tha gov
ernment intended to apply to the rolchstug
for n military credit of several hundred mil
lion innrlo.
To-nlsht the National Gwotto turns uion
itself , declaring that no moiioy doimiuds of
any importance were over contemplated by
the government. The statement that the
movements of Russian troops wcro threaten
ing the safety of the frontier is likewise pro
nounced as exaggerated.
\n uneasy reeling appears to prevail in
Austrian official circles , it Is feared tlio
chancellor is about to make a now move by
offering to assist in restoring llusslan dom
inance in Bulgaria as an inducement to draw
the czar from the French alliance.
The Vienna Fromdonblatt's article advo
cating tlio recognition ot Ferdinand us
Prlnco of Uulgaria has been quoted by the
North German Gazctto without comment.
Other semi-olllclal papers leave German sup
port doubtful , although the Yienna cabinet
is known to attach supreme importance to
the question.
Prince Hisimirck is suspected of playing a
double gamo. It is thought that on the ono
hand ho will threaten the c ar with n move
ment looking U > the linn establishment of
Bulgarian Independence , while on the other
hand ho will offer an eutciito based on a pro ]
posal that Uussla shall huvo u fiocr hand to
deal with Uulaarhi and intervene in Arme
nia. It is certain that if Iho receives
Prince Uisirarck's proposals with coidhoss ,
the recognition of Ferdinand by the porto ,
the powers forming the tnplo alliance ,
and England ulll be the ImmedlnlQ
sequence. The sultan has alrond.v ngiecdto
recognize Ferdinand , and only awaits the
\lsltofL3mporor William before issuing a
formal proclamation to that effect.
The ICreuzwilling to-day represented
Uniporor William's article in the Kelohsaii-
zolgor rebuking its nitucfc on Iho cartel pat1-
lies. The/Coining frankly adds that it as
sailed the national liberals because it was
convinced that the line ol' the policy of tliq
cartel parting under the inllucnco of the na-
tioiiiilHboiids was injurious to the slates.
Ilv virtue of the spirit of loyalty that has
animated its criticisms it now bows
before the opinion of the oui-
pcror. The response of the ICreuz
Xcltung , generally admitted to bo dignified
and well put , conceals its mortification at
finding that the ompuror has unabated confi
dence in the chancellor's international policy
and that ho is also ready to resent toadyism "H
from the ultra conservatives. The wolght A
of the imperial rubuka is enhanced by tlio an
nouncement thai it. . was written by iho em
peror on his own initiative and without the
knowledge of Hlsmurck. All parties feel the-
Importance of the utterance for the coming
elections. It will help squash tha ultra con
servatives and enormously strengthen the
united conservatives and national liberals.
