Secretary Tracy of the navy has submitted his annual report to the president , a brief synopsis of which Is as follows : During the twenty months covered by the present administration nine new ships have boon put In commission ; four , Including one monltor.havo been advanced to a point where they arc Just about to go into commission ; iivnnrutn such a condition that they will whortly bo waiting only for their armor ; seven have been built from the keel up , of which the Texas nnd Monterey are nearly ready for launching , and the flye cruisers nro well advanced ; whileof the six others pre viously authorized all have been designed and advertised , and all but one , the rain , hiivo been contracted for nnd uro actually under construction. Of thu vessels whoso actual construction was begun subsequently to the commence ment of this administration , the most import ant is the second class battleship Texas , building at the Norfolk navy yard. The keel was lani Juno 1,1&S9 , and although the work has been kept back by the non-delivery of material , the ship will. In all probability , bo ready for launching In the summer of 18UI. Until the year ISb'.l , the modern additions t6 the navy consisted chlelly of cruisers of from IUXJO to 4MM ) tons , nnd of gunboats of under li,000. The projected armored vessels included the Maine and Texas , brittle-ships of the second class , and one harbor defense vessel , the Monterey. In the animal report of lint year , the department advocated anew departure In naval construction , and strongly urged the policy of building ilrst-clnss battle ships , ns being by far the most Important constituents of a defensive force , capable of effective use In time of war. Congress car ried out this policy , and In tbo act of Juno HO , 18K ! ) , authorized the construction of thrco sea going coust-llnc battle-ships. Under the conviction that not a moment was to bo lost in obtaining tlioso vessels , deemed to bo so vital to the defense of the United State" , the department gave unront instructions to the bureaus , and the latter , with a promptness unexampled in the history of naval administration In ibis country , actively set about the preparation of designs , in anticipation of the passage of the act. The result ivns that on July 1 , the day after the net was approved , the general plans were ready and the advertisements issued Inviting proposals. Of torpedoes other than nuto-mobllc , ono , of the Patrick design , a torpedo electrically directed from the shore , has undcrgon a suc cessful test. Two others remain to bo sup plied to complete the three ordered February yo , ISS'J. It is proposed to use these tor pedoes for purposes of instruction ( a connec tion with the navnl war college. The number of roar admirals is too small for the needs of the service , nnd I recommend that It bo Increased from sis to ten. "Of the reductions made in the numbers of naval personnel , by the acts of congress of July ifi , 1870 , nnd Augusts , 1862thnilrst , was adopted nt a ttmo when the material of the navy was In n state of rapid decline , both in the number nnd quality of shins , and the second when it hud touched the lowest point. The transformation nnd rapid development of the Meet which has taken place in the last six years , innko it absolutely necessary to call tor u new adjustment In certain branches of the personnel , in order to keep up a reasona ble standard of efficiency among the olllcors of the navy. Quo of the most vital defects In our pros out naval system is the wan t of an organized militia , so trained that in case of necessity It will bo prepared tosnpply thodomands of the navnl service. The number of seamen now allowed by law Is 7f)00. Most of them at any given time nro necessarily scattered. They would not ho available nt all in nil emergency , nor would they In any case DO numerous enough to form more than the ncuclous of an nctlvo force. The want of asupply | | of men in reserve places the navy at a great disadvantage- compared with the army. The armv has al ways behind it a well trained militia , which makes its real numerical strength. Without this it would bo a feeble Instrument of na tional defense. The navy needs its reserves as much ns the army , and thov should bo composed not only of trained seamen , but of trained navnl seamen. The development of the militia is In the Interest of a true economy. Its cost to the general government lies only In arms and equipment for training. The remainder of expense Is voluntarily borne bv the states. Compared with the cost of a regular force of the sumo slzo , this expense is little more than nominal , as the periods of nctlvo employment uro confined to what is required for training purposes alone. The harbor of New York at the present tlmo is entirely defenseless. There Is no other instance in the world at the present tlmo of so much wealth In so exposed a situa tion. To protect it requires n combination of ( runs alloat nnd guns on laud. Especially n' that angle made by the Micros of Now Eng land and Now Jersey ; the Junction of Inter jml and external lines of communication where so much of the world's commerce centers - ' tors , should every reasonable precaution he taken to prevent the entrance of n hostile forco. The peculiar configuration o .Long Island sound , with the lim bers and bays affording shelter it Its neighborhood , the whole forming a hlghl ) advantageous base of operations for n marl tlmo assailant , is such that no enemy's flee should over bo allowed to gain an entranci therein. With a lleot oneo in the harbor tnocouse quencts would bo of such magnitude that tht country at largo could not disregard thorn The popular Impression Is that'tho danger ol a sea-coast city is a danger of bombardment , with ransom as an alternative. It Is not re porded as n passing danger , being opposed U the civilized tendencies of the ago , and , at tht worst , a menace that can bo bought off Leaving out , however , the possl blllty , If such u possibility exists that a stateof war will foregt an overwhelming strategic advantage out ol deference to the "civilized tendencies of the uge , " ami that any state or city Is ricl enough to pay the llftv or ono hundred mil lions that may bo exacted as the price of 1m inunity , the danger docs not stop hero. Tin ( terms of ransom would undoubtedly include the surrender of all tbo shipping , naval ci mercantile , in the port. In the caw of Ne York , it Is hard to suy what limit would be , Jlxod to a ransom , and Brooklyn and Jorso ) City would contribute their shares. Hut the calamity would not oud with the payment of money nnd the surrender of ships. An enemy's fleet once In the waters of Now York would remain tuero. Com merce would ho annihilated , In conclusion I would repeat hero the proposition that was laid down at the open- itiir of inv report last year , that "tho purpose for which the United States maintains annvv Is not conquest , but defense. " The best guaranty of pence Is a Judicious expenditure for the navy , such as1 will meet the necessi ties of the country. At the present tlmo it bus not such a force , nor will it have the force required even when nil the ships now authorized are completed. The problem of na val construction has been simplified almost beyond belief la tbo last eight years , It only cumins to add to the number of vessels of yiies already In existence. The price Is not too high to pay If It af- orils the moans whereby the United States , or the llrst time in ninny years , may bo en abled to preserve and defend Its rights. War s a ( 'ivat calamity , but it Is not the greatest calamity that can befall a free , Intelligent mU selfres peeling people. V. W. O. A. \ii KfTort to Kstnbllsli tin Omaha Ilrnnuh ol'tho AnHoclntloii. Not less than 200 Omaha Indies were nt the ecturo rooms In the Young Men's Christian association building yesterday afternoon to icaran address "for Women Only , " deliv ered by Mrs. J. A. Uummctt of Lincoln , state secretary of the Young Women's Christian association of Nebraska. The speaker , a irctty little brunette of perhaps thirty rears , spoto for nearly an hour , and during .hut time s'ao won the friendship of every person in thu house by her mild and earnest niinncr. After a little preliminary talk , Mrs. Dum- melt spoKe substantially as follows ! " .My Bear Ladies The alms of our society am the same as tboso of the Young Men's Christian association , only what that society does for young men , ours does for the girls. You may tnlnk this society as of recent ori gin , but it l not , for thirty yeas ngo , in Lon don , n number of Christian ladies organized n society to aid young girls , to look after them and see that they were protected and tuufjht the true principles of Christianity. The work spread rapidly , and in a short tlmo 100 societies nourished. Ten years later , at Napervllle , 111 , , the order gained n foothold in America , since which time branches have sprung'up in every state in thei union. At the present tlmo the larger portion of the work Is looltcd after by Cora ilello Tarrand " Nettle Brim , assLstcd" by seven state scere- Biirics , who are constantly traveling from ono town to another , looking after the welfare of the 7,3. > 0 members. "In Nebraska wo have fourteen associa tions , all prosperous and Increasing in mem bership. The work Is of a Christian nature and the main object Is to draw young women to Christ , but In addition to this wo propose to educate these nirls , as it is apparent upon every hand that each year the demand for women In the professions , as clorlis nnd In positions of trust , is growing greater , and for this reason It Is necessary that our young women should know moreof the ways of busi ness. There is much for young women todo , nnd now \vo propose to teach thorn bookkeep ing , stenography and lit them in body and mind that they may bo self-sustaining. Wo want to teach them how to dress , what to eat , and provide libraries nnd comfortable rooms that tlioy may have a place to go when out of employment. A'l ' of tills we do in the cities where our nssociatlons have been organized , and the line of work has boon carried out according to-the plans of the par ent association. ' Some of you may think that there Is need of missionary work In foreign lands , and so there is ; but right in our own country a'vast amount of missionary work remains for Chris tian hands to do , and lu this direction no work Is more laudable than that of keeping the poor working girls , who know no homo , other than that inclosed within the four walls of the little rooms where they spend their time after the work of the day has been finished. 'Tho girls want homes where they can go and worship ; they want places where they can go and receive words of comfort from those of their own sex. uau such a homo our association can give. " Mrs. Dummett then discussed the advisa bility of forming an organization of this kind in Omaha , nnd urged the ladles to take hold of the matter ut an early date , telling them that If they could nqt erect a building , they can rent thrco or four rooms nnd start the work. The state convention will bo bold at Ash land from the Itn to the Tt'n of the present month , nnd at that meeting It is more than likely that some provisions will bo made for organizing un association in this city. THU AUT KXiiinrrs. Great Crowds View the Collection In theStCflc Building. The exhibits of both the Western nnd Omaha Art Exhibition associations wcroopeu to tlio public yesterday. It was the closing day of the Western Art exhibit and the doors were finally closed at 7 o'clock last evening , after a very successful run of three weeks. There was not a largo attendance yesterday , as the bulk of the art Inspectors directed their steps toward the Omaha art exhibit at Thirteenth and Harnoy , which was open Sunday for the first tlmo , the management having yielded to the popular demand in this' respect. The wisdom of their decision was apparent at a glance through the galleries , as hundreds of people were there who had not been there before , and who would have been unnblo to attend on any of the week days. The portrait of the late Bishop O'Connor , recently received from Italy by John Hush , was on exhibition there for the first tlmo and attracted a great deal of attention. It Is an excellent portrait , nnd , heavily draped , occu pies a conspicuous place in the main gallery on the second Boor. There is little doubt but that the exhibit will bo open every Sunday hereafter during the time that It remains in th' city. The sale of several of the pictures Is gratl- fvlng wvldenco that the citizens Justly appre ciate tbo works of art that have been brought hero by the association. A number of sales are now pomlimr , and'in some instances the price is well up in four figures. Many of the gems thnt now grace the Bonguereau gallery - lory will become a part of Omaha collections after the main exhibit Is taken away. Tbc patronage is daily increasing , nnd the association wilLhnvo no reason to regret Its action in bringing the collection to this citv. Not only does the exhibit attract attention to Itself , but It Is stimulating Interest In art matters In a manner that will bo felt for years to come and will insure annual oxhlbl tlons of rare merit. Kngllsh Women. A word may bo In place hero about tlio English women. They are verv llttln like the better moiety of Americans. They appear to have the most bountiful health nnd they cer tulnly do possess the lovllcst complexions im aglnable. The Indian females of Alaska who cover their faces with u , thick blue ) mixture of soot nnd grease , In order to preserve servo their beauty , may have the most per feet complexions , as they boast , but untl there is other evidence than their assertion the palm must certainly go to the English Even In Whltechnpal , or among the peasant or fisher girls , you will see cheeks like the sides of poaches , while among the Londoi beauties the faces are like Ivory suffused wltl the tinge of rose loaves.Vu bnko oui faces in overheated houses at least six mouths in the year , nnd If we expose then it Is to violent boat or sudden changes They live at homo In such discomfort thut the best way to get warm has been for ages to get out of doors nnd walk. The consequence is Jhnt they urn bora with a fondness for the open air nnd open-air exercise , and always it a cllmato moist and produetlvo of the most superb animal and vegetable development But It seems to mo that the finest Engllsl women full far short of our mark. Big bony , heavy women too t ill a nd big am heavy they carry shoulders as dispropor tionately wide OH the sails of a windmill , and then pinch their waists to n degree our wo men never approached.

I never fully realized this until I went to Frauee.whcro the women are often goddesses Teen I know that I had not seen In nil Hug land a half dozen such women as abound it 1'uris and America. It was not until I won to Paris thut I realized the fact that EiiRllsl woman lack not only rounding outlines , hut that they full of being "stylish , " and tua they are wanting In gracefulness.

HO. ) Itcprescntntlves Cannon , 1'aysou , Itowell nnd Cutcheon , nil chairmen of committees nnd all defeated for re-election , made n nota ble group as they sat around a tr.blo in the speaker's lobby nt the capital yesterday. A volume could be written of the cxplanntlons whereby the defeated congressmen are ac counting for the result. This field has been so thoroughly threshed , however , that It scarcely contains n now Idea. Much inoro In teresting Is it to hear the member * relate their experiences which occurred during the week following the fatal Tuesday. "I " said Kowcll suppose , Representative , "that I had hundreds of people como to mo during the three days Immediately succeed ing election day and tell mo that if they had for a moment suspected the possibility of my defeat they xvould hive voted for mo. This feeling was expressed by democrat ! as well ns republicans. Another election held in my district on November 8 would have returned mo to congress by n majority surpassing my mostextravngant hopes. " According to the Kansas congressmen the republicans are heartbroken at allowing the state to slip out of their control. Hcpresent- itlvo Peters Bays that in Ills state tlio repub licans woke upon the morning of November 5 angry with themselves for staying at homo on election day. According to him , if general apathy was in control of the party during the campaign general regret has been in the sad dle over since. THE M'KISM.KV mu.'s INFJUINCB : AIIHOAH. An attorney of this city , who Is known throughout tlio country , especially for his political Influence and practice l > eforo com mittees In congress , gives mo nu instance of the Influence which the MoICinlcy tariff law Is having upon manufacturers abroad , whicli will bo of interest to every American , Just before the tariff bill was reported from the scnnto committee on tlmmco im Irish firm largely interested in the manufac ture of linens wrote to this attorney nnd naked to retain him to fight the proposed in crease of duties upon linen fabrics. The at torney replied that ho was n republican , bo- lloved in tbo protection of American In dustries , nnd that ho did not Wish to take the employment offered. Ho added also that the prospects were that the proposed Increase of duties would bo placed. in the tariff bill , despite any opposition offered. The letter had the effect of stirring up a member of the firm located in this coun try , and ho immediately cam a to Washing ton. "When ho called upon the attorney tlio advantages of the proposed protection of American industries were comprehensively laid before him. The impression was pro found. Ho took the next steamship for Kng- land and held a consultation with all of the members of his firm , and the result was that ho immediately returned to the United States and went to the attorney for the purpose of employing him to fight for tboadoptloa of the proposed increase ! of duties , explaining that if the duty was placed In the bill his firm would establish branch manufacturing estab lishments in this country , Thoattornoy who but n few weeks ago hud been urged to fight upon the other side by the snmo people now- rolled up his sleovcs nnd made a strong con test for the adoption of tlio proposed duty. The bill had nt this time just gene Into the hands of tbo conference committee , and the proposed duty was not provided. The com mittee was told'thatif'tho increase of duty was made the firm would'engage ' in the man ufacture of linen in this country. The prom ise had the effect of altlrmatlvo action on the part of tlio committee. Only a few days ngo the firm located Its first factory in this country nnd it promises to establish many more branches. It is be lieved that within two years there will bo moro linen manufacturers In the United States than in any other country in the world , excepting probably England. The establishment of tlnlfnctorics nud the opening of tho.groat tin mines In South Da kota nro but minor Industrie whlcti nro to spring up under the McICinloy bill. There hnvo been already moro than twenty woolen factories started up In Now .England , and ne gotiations are pending for the construction of various kinds of steel and iron working es tablishments , to bo mn partially upon pros pective contracts fortho government. There are now In this country today a number of representatives of ordnance nnd small arms manufacturers from Germany nnd Kngland , who are looking about with a view to the es tablishment of manufactories for the pro duction of various articles 111 iron nnd steel. CUIIIIUSCT COMITIIOI.LKU'S UErOHT. Tlio report of the comptroller of the cur rency for the year ending October 31 , 1800 , sbows that a total of 307 new national banks were organized 111 the different states and ter ritories during the year. Wisconsin ranks fourth In the list with 19 now banks doing business with an aggregate capital of 81,825- 000. Texas again heads the list with 03 now banks and shows that in spite of the opposi tion to thcso institutions in some of the southwestern states , the people of the Lone tjtar state have a great deal of conlidenco in tbo national bank charter. In order to secure some Idea of the amount of business dona by the national banks in the different states with other banks , the comp troller of tbo currency recently sent out u cir cular asking for the number of drafts so made. In response ho learned that the national banks in Omaha drew drafts for upwards of $100,000,000 on Now York , moro than $5S,000,000 on Chicago , 3.0 ) ,000 on bt. Louis , about ,000,000 on all other banks in reserve cities , and $1,250,000 in round llgurcs upon bunks outside of reserve - servo cities , making a total of business trans acted in the form of drafts by the national banks of Omaha alone of ? l"jl 8.713 during the year ending Octobcrill. AH the national banks lu Nebraska combined show a total business of this character of about fj,3j7- : ) 103 , The uniform rate of exchanges In Ne braska was for tbo year 9 cents oil ? 100. The average rate of exchange for tbo entire United States was S ] cents on f 100 , which is a wonderful falling off since the national banking system was organized in the west and southwest twenty years ago , when the average rate was from 1 to ! % percent. During the year SO national banks were closed to business , Of these 50 went Into valuntary liquidation and the other 9 intotho hands of receivers. Of the .10 , three were in Nebraska , namely ! The First national bank of Ogallalu , which was organized March 21 , 1837 , nnd closed January 14 , 1890. It was chartered with a capital of * .VM)0 ) ( and has circulating notes outstanding of ? 11 , 50 , ol which $ , ' ,500 have been redeemed. The First national bank of Hulo , Neb , , was organized April 19,1887 , , with a capital of $30,000 and was closed on January " 0 last. It had issued & 30,3 < U ) iu circulating notes and W.S10 of these only have been redeemed up to date. The First national bank of Loup City was organ ized August. 15 , 16S5 , and closca January SI , 1S90. It had SM.OUO capital and 111,230 ol circulating notes , of which (9,010 are still outstanding. During the year 1891 tbo corporate exist ence of niucty-flvo national banki will ex pire. There nro several of these in Ne braska. The charter of the State National bauK of Lincoln expires January 'J'tnut of tbo first National of Lincoln February 18 , the Nebraska City National July 13 and that of thu Virst National of Plattsmoutu JDeconi- ber 13. Under the provisions of the net of July 12,183'J , thrco national banks in Ne braska with nn aggregate capital of $750,000 have applied for and have obtained an exten sion of their corporate existence during the past year. It is probable that tliosc whoso charters expire In 1801 will also adopt the sumo plan of continuing business. The entire Issue of clrculatlng'iiotes by the Ne braska hanks up to the present tlmo has been MG.\GH ( ) , mid of this amount &j,03'j has been retired. As an indication of the activity of business In the west it Is interesting to note that uc cording to reports received of the business done in the clearing houses for the week end ing November 1 , IbW. the only western cities wherein a fulling oft is shown are St. I'aul where the decrease was very slight , am Seattle.

The girl who Is colng away from homo quite By herself , and who will have to travel for several days and nights on tbo cars , who will lie at n strange hotel by 'herself , wants a Ht- tlo advice about what to do , says HutU Asn- moro in the Ladies' Homo Journal. Her number may bo many , so I prefer to tell her in this httlo paragraph : In ouylnghcr ticket for the trip she also buys a ticket for her sleeper , and the railway ofllclal will arrange thnt If she does not got the entire section the other berth is also occupied by a lady. AVheii she wishes logo to bed , the porter , at her re quest , will arrange the berth for her , nnd Lhonoiitof tbo small satchel that sbo has provided she will take the dark Hannol orde- ainodresslng-cown in whioh KIO ! Intends to sleep , nnd go to the toilet-room and put this on. Her clothes are hung by tlio berth , and while sbo is advised to remove her dress.skirt and corsets and her shoes , It will bo wiser to retain some of tier underwear and her stock ings , not only because of the draft , but be cause of the fnclllty'of getting Into things the next morning. Get up early and go to the toilet-room , but -do not monopolize it for liours. "When you reach a strange city get into the stage that belongs to ttio hotel to which you wish to go , get out nt tbo ladies' entrance , go Into the reception 'room and say that you want some ono sent from the olllco to you. Toll who over conies' exactly what kind of n room you want and ask the price of It. Give himyobrnanio'tyoircgister , and. remember , wbilo you are alone In a public house it is not wise to dross in any except a quiet way. No trouble about ordering your meals should bo experienced , ns the bill-of-faro shows ex actly what Is served ana you can take your choice. As to "tipping' , ' * you jviH cortainls. give a small tip to the porter who straps- and locks your trunks for you , -and to any hell boy in the hotel who shows you any special service.

It Is a picturesque old place , \vhlch offered a stout resistance to the Spanish in the sixteenth century , nnd shows an equal r.oal in tbo nineteenth , In lining the square in front of Its weighing house with heaps of round red and yellow cheeses every Friday morning. By daybreak the streets are thronged with gayly-palnted country wagons , from -which descend women wearing broad bands of gold sbapod llko horse-shoes across their foreheads. These bands keep the hair back and thus servo the Dutch purpose for neat ness , though they are usually anything but becoming , Large oval rosnttesof gold , often richly wrought , stand out at the temples. Above the band is worn a full vcilof white lace , or at the least of line lawn , with a deli cate lace border. This hangs down upon tbo nock and shoulders , and Is secured upon tbo hulr by largo gold 'pins. Long , and often costly , gold earrings complete this elaborate headgear , which , with 'tho ' addition of n , ueck- lace ofgold - beads , is a woman's pride and frequently bcr only dowry. Dozens and scores of such headdresses give to the Alk- mnar market a look of gayety and prosperity that is rare enough in peasants except in plodding , prosperous Holland. The fishwives of Schbvoiilngon bavo nltercH their dress but little in centuries. Between the broad streets and French costumes of The Hague only a fovwinlles distant nnd tbo windy dunes with. } jierring "pinken" pulled upon the beach ( Uiul unloaded by women in huge straw bnta spreading llko wings at tbo sides , there is a contrast to wonder at and think on.

The indications now point to the fact that the nominees for the council will not have ns smooth sailing tomorrow a < they anticipated , and lu many other wards there will ho thrco sides to thu light , to say nothing of the nomi nees on the regular ticket ; who will como Infer for tliolr share of the support. In the First ward there is a pretty mess. It docs not indicate any good forJ. J. ICon- nedy , the nominee ot the democratic - primaries ies , Tom L.9\vry declares that there nro f > 70 voters who'will stay by him until the sun goes down Tuesday night , and for this reason ho has barred his breast and proposes to make a Jtcht. Ho claims that it was a packed cauciu , packed bv Missouri Pacific railroad men , nnd that if ho had had half a show bo could have downed J. J. Kennedy two to one. Since the nbovo was prepared the ? matter has been moro fully Investigated , as may bo seen by the certiilcato of the primary of ficers which Is herewith presented. It shows thnt , so far.from having been defeated by Kennedy , Lowry was u victor at the pri maries by twenty-eight votes , The certifi cate was brought bctoro the democratic- city central committee , which was specially con vened last night , and thoroughly discussed. It was decided thnt the committee would en dorse the certiilcato which of itself maiici Lowry the regular democratic nominee of the First ward. This will compel Kennedy to run as an Independent nominee , because un der the statutes , If his name appears upon the democratic ticket ho will bo liable to ar rest. rest.The The certificate is as follows !

The Second ward promises to go before the people with rather an Interesting fight on its hands. Peter UMsasser will lead the democracy , while Hay , the defeated demo crat , will do allttloknitlug around the edges , with Isaac S. ilascall gathering up the inde pendent votes. Ilascall moved into the ward only two weeks ngo from the First ward , where ho had no chance and now Insists enforcing forcing himself on the Second ward. In tlio Third ward O'Conncll proposes to cut a wide swath in the ranks of tlio follow ers of Pat Ford's ' friend , Burdisb. O'Connoll asserts that ho Is bound to cet there this time and the bloody Third will witness a very sanguinary contest. The light in the Fourth-has narrowed down botwcon Wheeler backed by the contractors and tax-caters and Thomas Tuttle , who is favored by the best citizens of both parties. Wheeler's hope of election is chiefly with the gangs and several democratic saloonkeepers who bavo been subsidized and annexed. In the Fifth ward pence falls to flutter Its white wings over the democratic camp. In this ward thonale moon is streaked with gore. Hd O'Conncr nnd his braves have drawn their knives and oroposo to plunge them into the vitals of Tim Con way. Fraud is charged on every hand. Ills stated openly that Con way skirmished the island and all the country bet ween Florence lake and the Union 1'aclllc shops for man , many of whom lived in East Omaha and on Cut off lake island. Both of the men state Unit with a fair vote They could have left Con way so far behind that ho would not have known ho was in the race. The better class ol republicans are no better satisfied than the democrats. They say that tlio primaries were carried by the TJroatch heelers and strikers headed by Johnny McDonald , the oil inspector , and it is also charged that large numbers of iion-resi- dents wcro voted by them last Friday. The best elements of both parties are looking for an Independent candldato nnd will probably trot him out during the day. In the Seventh ward It is a settled fact that tbo people will not submit to tbo dastardly work performed by Cbaffeo and his gang of strikers , who obstructed voting and intimi dated the voters. Yesterday a largo number of the heavy tax payers and prominent citizens of the ward , who were disgusted with Chaffco's methods , called upon Mr. Roedor and urged him to al low his name to go before the people on elec tion day. lie at last consented and is now a full-fledged candidate.

For the purpose of repudiating a nomination ob tained under such circumstances , the Inde pendent democrats of the ward will liold a mccilng tonight nnd it Is thouiht put In nom ination a man who will bo n representative of both party and taxpayers. lu the Ninth ward n revolution has taken place.

While her husband runs about with n feverish activity , visiting present nml possible allies , she is content to remain at home , mul perform the- very limited duties that the constitution lin ninrketlout fortho wives of German sovereigns , writes Theo dore Child in Harper's Hnrnr. Owing to the many bereavements in tlio voynl family , the court at Berlin has not been very Kn > ' since \Vltmm ! 11 began to rclgn. lu fact , in the days of his grandfather It was not renowned for ita liveliness , The present emperor continues the economical tiuidltlons of the Ilohonzollcrn family , nnd court ocepctont nra not much moro frequent than state halls were nt Paris under M. Jules Orovy. 1 laving scarcely nny other public duties to perform than to uppciir at the head of hur regiment of cutwsteis during the rare nion'onts when the emperor I nt homo , the empress devotes the most of her tlmo to her household cures , nnd per haps continues to put up her own preserves , at she did when she was thu Princess William. The emperor Is not at all displeased nt this kind of talent , us the fol lowing incident will show. Soon nttcr William II was crowned , n committee of llcr- lln ladles , having resolved to offer n gift to the now empress , decided , without n very long deliberation , that the souvenir should consist of n while Bilk apron trimmed with costly laces , and Imvlnp the names of the llvo little princes embroidered In garlands. In receiving this present , the empress told the donor * that she waS happy to accept s-uch a gift , for the npron hud always been the symbol of a good German housewife. "Uo- sldes , " she added , "my husband will bo satis- fled with your offering , for ho desires thnt I should always wear nn npron in the house I" The empress Auitiustn Victoria Is now In her thirty-first year , and Is three months older nnd somewhat taller than the emperor , but her fair ami fresh complexion makes her look younger thnn her ngo. .An oval face , soil blue e.vts , beautiful teeth , and nn abund ance of blond hair irlvo horii decidedly agree- nblo if not positively pretty physiognomy , while she passes for having smaller feet than tlioso that nature has generously bestowed upon the sisters of her race. Tlio empress has already given live sons to her huslund , b her motherly care is not long bestowed on each ono , for as soon as possible their fnther takes them nwny from the nurse , and sends them to the drill-master in Thurliifdn , where they are uniformed , booted , spurrei and taught to train nsubruln true German fash ion. Perhaps the empress would like to have u daughter union ? this little flock , but William II. Issntlsllod with the sons. Speak ing one dav to his elder sister , the princess of Saxo-Moln'lngen , ho said : "It Is bolter to have only boys , because when there is a daughter , that Immediately causes inora cm- barussment , and cntniU greater expense. First of all thcnj must bo a governess , one or more maids of honor , and a lot of complicated finery. On the contrary when there are only boys , they can nil bo dressed in thesaino fashion in uniform , A piece of cioth will servo for all of them. My boys are all dressed as artillerymen , oven the smallest one , who is already n corporal. " And It is in this costume that they play all day long Only the poor little princes cannot play as other little children do ; tholr solo recreation Is to ainuso themselves with military theory and exercise , so as to becoino warriors , and win laurels , as their ancestors have flono and as tholr fathers hope to do. Her IJOVCP Must llohnvc. What vices can I tolerateIn a young man ? That depends largely upon his relationship to me. If ho is my brotlioror my lover I may say ! can tolerate no vices in him at all. If bo is merely an acquaintance , a society neighbor , I am not so particular , writes a Chicago lady to the Chicago Herald. Head ing the replies to the nbovo question in your last Sunday's issue I was very much sur prised to learn that most of your correspon dents were willing to forgive more vices in their lovers , husbands or intimate friends than in any other young men. Quito the contrary should , I think , bo true. I for ono would have my lover , friend or brother purer and more inunly than any ether man. I could not tolerate any real vices in cither. When I had blushed for my lover once I should suitor intensely , but when I found myself blushmp for him often love would spread her white wings and depart. I could bo very kind to such a man. but could not love him. My friend may smoke , providing he smoked In tbo rlcht place never m pub lic places when In tlio society of n lady , ilo may bo conceited , self-confluence brintr nec essary In a man who Is to accomplish much in this world ; he may bo too fond of dress or ho may bo too negligent of dress : ho may oven neglect me n little for thu society of boolts or business , but never for the society to be found in suloonr or gambling houses. ( Yes , bo may even be a republican and believe - lievo in high tarilT. ) In short , ho may have faults of temper , may bo homely , but no real vices can bo tolerated ; nothing that de tracts fiom his real manliness or that shall cost him his self-respect or tbo respect of ether people. For one , I could not love or servo any man who would be contented to bu less than manly , courageous , intelligent and true , and who need hang his head for shame before any man , woman or assemblage. It seems to the writer that women have boon nnd ore too forgiving to their masculine friends , so fur too lenient that tlio young men of tlio generation seem to be trying to sou how fur they can go on the high ronil to destruc tion without getting beyond tlie limits of en durance of such women ns may bo interested in them , and that they make their vices the test of woman's love. II en co , wo find them assuming the portion that , unless Mary will forglvo any vices and 111 manners of which John may b'o guilty , she doesn't love him , and that when John has decided that his bonds nro a Httlo Irltsonic , and may run to excess in some vice in order to force her disgust and his dismissal , ho very often only Incites a persistence In faithfulness on her part worthy a hotter cause. A young gentleman reading these lines may consider the author quite too particular , but she and olhcc young ladles she knows when tboy nsl < a young man to como up to their high standard only ask him to bo Just as coed nnd Just as manly as they try to bu good and womanly , and wo do not think wo could bo satisfied with tbo society of n young man hi tbo relationship of friend , lover or husband who would bo satisfied with the society of a woman lejs particular than we. _ A Costly To thoKditorof Tin : llr.c : The U'orld- Ilcmlii recently printed the following In ro- paiil to the testimony of W.
