The recent act of congress extending to
senators and representatives the privileges of
sending through the malls under a frank all
communications addressed to a government
oftlclul will prove a big boon to nearly everyone
ono of the nation's law matters. In accord
ance with the act Postmaster General \Vana-
nuikcr 1ms Issued a circular to postmasters
and employes of the postal service calling
tholr attention to the provisions of the bill
and Instructing them to pass nil mall matter
of this class when accompanied by the slgna-
.uro of tbo sender placed on the outsldo. The
circular states that the privileges conferred
applies to members of both branches of con
gress , senators , delegates and representatives
including not only these who have taken their
seats as sucb , butthoso who have been elected ,
dave received their certificates of election
and hold the prlma faclo rights to seats.
Senators and representatives whoie terms
havn expired are not entitled to the benefits
of this act. Franked letters must In every
case bo addressed to a government olllcer
not necessarily ut Washington , but nnywhero
In the United States wboso ofllcial title
must bo given In the superscription of the
letter , either with or without his name.
The privileges given In the act applies only
to letters on ofllcial business , each letter to a
government ofllcer to be separately envel
oped and framed. The term "letters" as
used in this law moans communications
wholly or partly In writing , relative to ofll
cial matters and sent under seal , such com
munications us are dominated In the laws
mall matter of the first class. By the term
of this net It will readily be scon where the
congressmen will profit. Taking the coun
try member for example. The country which.
ho represents contains many thousands of
constituents. A goodly number of thcso
want nlaccs under the government aud the
representative U dally beslogod .with , .letters
aud'appllcatlons asking for recognition.
Being some distance away from Washington
a correspondence with the officials under
whoso charge the desired appointment Is
classed must bo carried on and United States
stamps are freely used. Sometimes the re
sult is beneficial Doth to the applicant and to
the representative nnd In thcso instances the
money is well oxpendcd. On tbo other baud
tbo applicant is "turno < t down" nnd then the
nionov spent in stamps is considered as
wasted. Under the now law a congressman
Is entitled to carry on all his correspondence
relating directly to the Interests of his con
stituents without the expenditure of any ol
hla private funus. It is safe to suy that this
act will bo the moans of saving to western
* members alone hundreds of dollars each.
"It's my Judgment , " said Senator Pad
dock of Nebraska , the other day , "thatPresl-
dent Harrison will ba reuomlnated next year ,
and without formidable opposition. His ad
ministration boa crown rapldlv. He has hac
frictions with Individuals. No man ever oc
cupied the position without having them.
Ho has been unable to please ovcrybody , but
none of his predecessors have. There are
members of his cabinet who have difficulties
with Individual members of the republican
party , and tbcsso displeased gentlemen will
light In the convention Against rcnomlnatlon.
Tnls Is hut the repetition of history. I do
not pledge myself tuls far In advance to any
body as the standard bearer next year , but I
bcllovo President Harrison , looking at the
future from the present standpoint , will bo
the nominee. "
Senator Hoar of Massachusetts said re
cently : "With the possible exception ol
Onrflela and Lincoln , President Harrison is
the best equipped chief oxccutlvo wo have
had In n half ccutury. I mean the officer , for
It Is not a question to speak of the rann. "
An Ohio congressman , who did not want
his name mentioned , speaking of the person
ality of Presidents Gurileld and Harrison ,
and drawing comparisons between the per
sonal popularity of the two men , said :
"Fewer persons have spoken 111 of the
present occupant of the white house than o :
any man I can remember during the nrs !
two yean of his term. That is the trying
period. It Is almost Impossible to keep fro m
offending men during the oQlco-sceklng
period , for ono Is driven from , pillar to pos
every day in hh > efforts to not offend , and 1
scorns the inoro ouo tries to please nil the
more liable bo U to innocently displease
some" . "
It looks as though the strike ? f the job
printers m Washington , ordered to take
place next Wednesday unless the demands o
the union are acceded to , promises to bo
warmly contested and to have a far reachlii |
influence. The printers demand 42M cent
per 1.000ems instead of 40 cents before ,
o'clock in the afternoon ana 55 cents aftc
that hour , All of the owners of job prlntlni
establishments are reported to have dedarci
that they will not yield to the demands
Kufus 11. Darby , who owns tbo larges
printing house In the city , says : "Wo
are now pay Irg higher prices for composltioi
than are paid In Baltimore , Philadelphia am
Now York , nnd this because the union here
is ruled by the employes of the governnion
oDlco. Washington ought to bo n great pub
lishln g center , and yet , whllo a great many
books are written hero , but few uro prlntci
hero. Why Is this ? Because of the high
price of composition.Vcro the price reason
able a great deil of work would bo done hero
that now goes out of the city. Yes , I am prepared -
pared for the fight If It comes , and if I nra
forced out of the union by excessive demand
,1 will I'ovor have any dealings wlthitugaln.1
It Is stated that the strike will bo orderct
by the printers at the government printin
office , who control the union hero , and th <
object is to hold up this victory , If ono I
achieved , as an object lesson to demand an
other increase from congress when it con
vcues next winter , and that the printers In
the Joboniccsaresatlstled with the wage
now paid thorn , but are unable to keep thorn
selves out of the stnko if their demands nr
not compiled with. An assessment of 2 pc
cent will bo ordered from tbo goverumen

ittlo more evidence together and try to got

ccivo so much attention as their new law
claims did , and thctl they write letter after
cttcr , complaining of the unjust treatment
which they think they vro receiving , but It Is
in established rule at the buronu
that the now law claims and the
applications of widows shall have
the preference Over all the other
cases , nnd the deputy commissioner wants It
fully- understood why some claims are seem
ingly glvoii the profcruiieo over others. The
: lcputy commissioner sa.vs that , judging from
the increase in the numbjr of applications

ATCIIISOX , Kan. , ftfarch 39. The leaders of
the equal suffrage movement in Atchlson are
becoming discouraged Jond many are falling
by the wayside. The law givlne women tbo
right to voto.ot municipal elections in Kan
sas was adopted by the legislature in 18SO.
Tbo following spring 490 women registered ,
but less than 800 voted. The next year 481
worccn registered , but only 375 voted. The
third year 294 women1 registered , but less
than 200 voted. This veir U24 women regis
tered and it is believed that not over
100 will vote. The average AtchIson -
Ison woman docs not cnv ° to dabble
in politics. She will leave that sort
of business to the men. Ono woman is now
serving her second terra on the school board ,
but she is not an equal suffragist , and was
elected by the votes of the men and without
opposition. Whenever women run for pfllco
us equal suffrage candidates they Invariably
KOt defeated. Two women arc now making a
political tight for positions on the school
board , and all the female \chool teachers In
the cliy have registered fofc the sole purpose
of voting : against them. ' Equal suffrage Is
looked upon as a fad hero which Is rapidly
nying out. <
WICHITA , Kan. , March 29. The registration
books have closed and show a total of 0,520 ,
names. Of these lJOj ! ! are these of women ,
being nearly three times greater than tbo
registration of women at the last municipal
election. The primary cause of this Increase
Is found in the existence of a largo citizens'
alliance , which has registered all Iti women ,
thus forcing the opposing candidates to intro
duce into the fight as. many as possible of
their pottlcoated allies ,
: LK\VKNWOHTIT , ICan. | March 29. The total

DETUOIT , Mich. , March 29. Fresh interest
was added to the famous abduction case
today by Porrlon's ' lawyorsfofforing $3,000 for *
the arrest and conviction of the abductors , or
evidence that would lead to that end. Per-
reln would have oftoroil the reward the day
after his return , but Chief of Pollco Berg
man advised apulnst H. A broach has been
made between the chief of pollco and the
Perrlcn relatives by reaioti of nothing being
done , and Lawyers Moston , Cowles nnd
Jerome , who have charge of Porribn's Inter
est , have drawn up charges to present to the
police commissioners agtfnst Chief Dorgman ,
asserting that ho neglected to workout clews
that wcro furnished , and claiming thut had
ho done so Pcrrlen's abductors would
have been landed the first day. As for as

John Lyons , who keeps /Ivory stable nnd
always goes ball for the pro ks. Is strongly
suspected of knowlnff wHo'they ore , but will

against the chief. Lyons was called upon to

A Paris 1'jipcr's Interesting Death
Notice ol" tjftwrcnco Hnrrctt
They Thought Ho Was
a NVoiimn.
LONDOX , March 29. The Parisian pollco
have Just given out the facts In connection
with the arrest of Evolluo Neal , mention of
whom was made In these dispatches yester
day , regarding her extraordinary matrimon
ial career.
Eveline Ncnl Is the child of a well-to-do
farmer In Shropshire , the fertility of whoso
acres made It an easy matter to provide hand
somely for his family.coraposod . of ono daughter -
tor and three sons. Eveline , llko many others
in the same position , being the pet ot her
fnthor and brothers , and fairly good looking ,
soon learned to command nnd grow up In the
belief that mankind was created to do her
homage and minister toher wishes. How
early she started In her present career Is not
yet known , but as she Is still young , If not In
the heyday of youth , It is supposed that she
early entered the crooked.paths lu which sno
has slnco strayed.
Evollno's methods were admirable in tholr
simplicity. Fearing that the sturdy common
sense of the majority of her countrymen
might net provo favorable to her schemes , she
long sineo transferred herself nnd her belong-
, lngs to French soil , finding In Purls , and-tho
general practice of patronizing man-ingo bu
reaus nnd answering advertisements holding
out attractive Inducements to commit matri
mony , a congenial atmosphere and much en
couragement. Behold her , then , located in
the gay capital , If she could bo said to have n
location when the necessities of her trade com
pelled her to bo as locomotive as a crass-
hopper and qulto protean In her many dis
guises. Of course , a woman of Miss local's
genius could not aabcro slavishly to any par
ticular method. She had many , but u favor
ite scheme , and ono that won her much
wealth , was the announcement In the Jour
nals that she was a widow , with a fortune
varying in different advertisements from
200,000 to 1,000,000 francs , and desired to
marry a gentleman In ROOI ! circumstances be
longing to "high llfo" If not w the nobility ,
or to tbo select circles of commerce.
Answers were directed to ba sent ad
dressed pesto restanto , where they were
called for by an accomplice , Tbo latter then
selected such of the replies as madnmo was
pleased with , and made appointments for an
interview , not with the Knglish maiden , but
only with her frlond. At this meeting tbo
accomplice , M. Burgos , passed tbo candi
dates in serious review , noting down care
fully the physical characteristics of nocti , the
amount of fortune , etc.
In coses where the examination proved sat
isfactory the victim was invited to mndamo's
sumptuous apartments in sight of the Hond
Point in the Champs Elysees or some equally
nttraotivo quarter of the city. On every oc
casion the widow assumed a new name , but
each time she told u pitiful tale of how she
had been married against her will , and , whllo
she would llko to please herself on the pres
ent occasion , she still had a mother , her
father being dead , wboso wishes she must
consult , and who still deemed her , in spite of
her previous matrimonial experience"o'er
young to marry yet. " In short the applicant
must watt.
Then began the most profitable portion of
the game , the courtship being m.ido as ex
pensive as possible for the suitor. Nothing
but the most costly presents would placate
the imperious beauty , and if tboy fell off In
the slightest from her high standard of qual
ity and quantity the dream of the infatuated
admirer was promptly ended. Nor was this
done in any disagreeable manner. There was
no scene , no reproaches , no tears. Madame
simply disappeared. The profusely bled vic
tim sought ncr In her acuustomod haunts ,
but the most diligent search failed to reveal
her.It goes without saying that the presents ,
constituting the magnificent "Corbellle , "
were also missing. The precious stories , rich
jewels and other vnluublo booty were not
only invisible to the donor , hut ho would
have been compelled to take ship in order to
see them again. They had been safely trans
ferred to the mndnmo's snug little mansion in
tbo suburbs of London , which was rich from
gurrclt to cellar with the proceeds of her
Parisian industry.
But madame had yet another method. In
cases whore something more than the swlnto
Joys of a French courthip were needed to induce -
duce the fiancee to part with his means in suf
ficient abundance , Eveline kindly consent.d
to an actual marrlago , which plcco of
gracious condescension never failed to pro
duce the desired effect.
The > > Maino" and the church would ba vis
ited In due course , the wedding breakfast
eaten nnd the presents duly received and
ticketed , but when the shades of night had
fallen on the scene the groom , who mayhap
had indulged too freelv in Chambcrtin , would
suddenly bo rudely awakened to the knowl
edge that both bride and gifts had departed.
The French police decloro on tbolr honor
that In 1831. when Evollno was brought to
their ofllcial attention for the first time , she
had been married in this iwcullar way thir
teen times , but that now she bad increased
the score to the extraordinary total of lorty-
The cause of the present unsought publicity
given to Evellno nnd her ways Is her experi
ence with a certain viscount , which led to
her arrest nt the Hotel Meurlco yesterday.
This gentleman had ruined himself by
gambling and was naturally anxious to ob
tain more wealth wherewith to rcglld his
tarnished escutcheon. At tt rst attracted by
Evollno's suppositlous millions , he at length
became reallv In love with the adventuress
nnd followed her and her companion with
canine fidelity in tholr travels throughout
England , Belgium and Norway , the expenses
being paid by the noblotajm , who borrowed
right and left on notes of hand based on his
expectations of marrying a wealthy widow.
This , however , could not go on lorovec. The
viscount insisted that the happy day should
bo named ; Eveline , knowing that no more
presents could bo gained by an actual marri
age , declined to do so , and nor suitor laid his
case before the police.
Eveline was astonished at her arrest , but
Is a woman of too many rosoircos to bo
greatly cast down.
Interest in the Mackay-Bonvngo dispute
has been transferred to this sldo of the At
lantic , whcro attacks upon Mr. Mackay nnd
his family continue to bo made , even wbllo
the solicitor and friends of that gentleman
nro being kept busy preparing papers to bo
used In tho'logal proceedings which have al
ready been Instituted. In addltio'n to the ac
tion to bo brought against the principal in
these offendlngs there uro others which will
bo urgtul against certain society papers
which have taken up the cudgel in favor of
Mr. Bonyngo.
Tbo Bonyncos claim that tbov have knowl
edge to the effect that Mr , Mackav employed
detectives for the purpose of obtaining information
mation in regard to Bonyngo's family , but it
Is known thatthoInformation connecting Mr ,
Bonyngo with the publication of the rumors
hostile to the Mncknys ? securedjjthvough
u friend and advisor of the Mackuys In New
York , to whom itcnmo accidentally. No do.
tcetlvo was over employed nor was any nec
essary for the purpose ,
Ono of tbo local society papers published a
short Umojigo s'pveril peg s ofmlslcadlng In
cidents connected with the subject , and went
so far as to reprint an extended article from
the Now York Truth which , It has teen nl-
legod , was the cause of the personal en
counter that took place between Mackay nnd
Bonyngo In the Nevada ban K , Sun Francisco.
Mr , Mnckay bos reason to believe that ho
knows who Inspired these articles anil has al
ready stated that bo has lateen stops to prose
cute the guilty parties. Perhaps the most of
fensive and incautious article on the supjccl
was that published la Gallguani's ' Messenger ,
which under It * management during the last
year has departed sufficiently from the con-
icrvntlvo tone which formerly charactciliod
its articles tolndulgn In personalities , nnd in
this particular Uallgimn9 directly charged
Mr. Mackuy with having circulated HboU re
garding B - > 1 ? nnd his family , an accusa
tion which < " f * \Mnckt\v strenuously denies
and of whM \ , asserts not the slightest
proof cxlstA Voon ns the article lu UallR-
: innl a aupeil ? ' Mr. Mackay placed tbo mat
ter in the ha , ' * . V his solicitor in 1'nrlJ and
lirocccdlngs tmmedlntcly t boiwti , That

Tact that the : tor of the paper in ques
tion has lllod eng ndkluvlt with Mr.
Muckny's solk v id which forms an Im
portant part , of i 'io I , sslcr now on record.
Mr. Muckay was f > iirst inclined to accept
n simple apology , but ho reparation was neg
lected by the editor ol the paper , who stated
to an Intimate friend no was fully In-
dcmnlllcd ngnlnst any proceedings that Mr.
Mnckay might cheese to take. At tlio last
moment tbo mythical individual who would
Indemnify the editor of Jho Gftllguanl's could
not ba found , whereupon the nowipnper Im
mediately came out with n profuse apology.
It was , however , too Into , for Mr. Mackay re
fused to accept what was offered and di
rected his solicitor to prosecute the cdltorand
publisher to the last cxtrcmity.
The caio came up last Wednesday in Paris
it the Neuvleno chamber of pollco correc-
tlonnollcPnlals do Justice , nud after Leopold
Urahnm and the publisher had been called to
the bar to plead the court adjourned the case
until April 15. Unless in the mean time the
cdltorand publisher flco the country they
will be liable to ba found guilty , and probably
will suffer for tlioir indiscretion.
The death of Atr. Lawrence Barrett has
been the subject of many regretful remarks ,
not onlv in theatrical but in other circles us
well. It has served to show n fact which has
long been noticed and has frequently boon
commented on , viz. , the nbsolutolgnornnco of
everything connected with the outsldo world
which exists lu Paris. The death of your
well known man nger and actor was , of course ,
cabled to the French capital ; equally , of
course , It was mndo the subject of editorial
comment nnd it need hardly bo said that the
Information the French editors served up for
the delectation of tbolr readers wus such as
would make the average American open his
eyes In wonder and amazement unit cer
tainly created no llttlo ainuscniont in tbo
American colony. Thus ono of the lead
ing papers said : "Tha death is announced
from Now York nt the ago of fifty-three of
the well known American actress Lawrence
Barrett. " This was bad enough , because
nobody , so fur as Is known , ever had the
slightest. Idea that Mr. Barrett's distinctively
masculine method and forcible style could
have produced any suggestion of femininity.
This notion of the dead actor being a woman ,
was further exemplified in the case of
another paper , which wrote : "Lawrence
Barrott , the wollknownlAmerlcaii actress ,
died yesterday in Now York. Mine. Barrett
\vns fifty-three years of npo. but many of bor
admirers finding her at all times so sprightly ,
pretty , and youthful In nppenrance , thought
she had only Just turned thirty. M. B.irrett ,
her husband , served In the war of accession
as a captain of .infantry. "

New YOUK , March 20. President Van
Horn , ot the Canadian Pacific , has concluded
an arrangement with Chauncoy M. Dopow
and II. Walter Webb , of the Now York Cen
tral railway , by which the Canadian Central
can bring Its freight and passenger trains
into New York over the West Shore uud
Central. The Canadian Pacific will comedown
down from Brockvlllo over the now bridge
which Is to bo built at that point by Way of
the Home , Watertown & Oguqnsburg road to
Utlcj. The details of the agreement are to
be worked' out. by , . the , traWo officers oltha

dcnl In an interview , and eata the arrangement
would give the Van dcrbllt system : i trans
continental line from Nova Scotia lo Van
couver nnd the foreign road will briup : a
great amount of business to the metropolis.
The Canadian Padlh : now enters many of
the great commercial cities In the United
States. Bv n trafllo agreement with the
Boston & Maine road and with n voice in the
management of that road it gets an entrance
into Boston and n strong hold on all New
England. The Wafeash lets It Into Chicago
and by moans of the "Soo" and the Dulutli ,
South Shore & Atlantic it taps Duluth , Min
neapolis and St. Paul , while arrangements
with other roads lets it into Sioux City
to a connection with transcontinental
roads. Thus it is In a position to comwoto
with all roads between the Missouri nnd sea
board. Being n foreign road it is not amen
able to the interstate commerce law , nnd
whenever during the past yearor two there
hnvo been rate disturbances nt junction
points , the , Canadian Pacific bos not often
escaped suspicion.
Depow did not say what would be the effect
of the Canadian Pacific getting a foothold in
Now York , or how the Now York Central
would bo reeardod for allying itself with a
foreign lino. The now alliance U not liltoly
to Improve the rate situation In trunk line
territory , nnd the chances nro that the dis
turbances at Boston , Chicago and St. Paul
will be repeated.

WASUINOTOV , March 29. For several years
past attempts Imvo been made to victimize

As a rule ho Is n person who has at some
into bnd n slight acquaintance with a

pnnlsh priest , tolling him that a largo sum
if money has boon loft to him by this Span-
ard on conditions that always Involved the
dvancomont of n greater or loss sum of
lonoy to pay the necessary charges.
The first noticq the department of stnto

'resident Harrison soon after ho assumed

Host , as ho described hlmSolf , Informed the

The next person selected as a victim was
General Hartlett , of the pension ofllco In
Vashington , In this case a great quantity
ot valuable plate was at stake , encumbered
vith tlio innocent , angelic child of n Span-
