What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

[From our 'Regular Correspondent.] WssiktNGroN, D.C., Sept. 2. The last r incelin g to paralyze the Anglomnani# and admirers of royal- ty, who are* . too numerous in this city, is the Thakor Sahib of Limdi, \from India's coral strand,\ who, with his retinue of servants, arrived on a visit a day or two since. His royal nibs, though a vassal of Vic- toria, claims to be an absolute sover- eign over a principality about the size of England, being in the presi- dency of Bombay. All the local military companies, and quite a ormeourse of citizens as- sembled at the B11611:40 and Poto mac depot mettight or two since to exterrel a cordial welcome borne to the Washington Light Infantry, after their week in camp on the beach at Atlestic City. This occa- sion showed, as had often been the case before, that whatever else might fail as a great popular attraction, a military demonstration, even of a trivial character, sets Washington half wild almost en masse. One might have supposed that these holi- day soldiers, who have never seen a hostile flag, were fresh from some sanguinary field crowned with the laurels of \grim -visaged war,\ when, as a matter of fact, the gallant youths had only been waging war for one little week against mutton chops, codfish balls, clams, crabs, Jersey mosquitos and moon -struck maidens. The recent railroad disasters were perhaps blessings in disguise, and may ultimately bear good fruit in congress, as Senator Butler, of South Carolina, who was in one of the col- lisions, has, by personal experience, been brought to a vivid realization of the perils of passengers and the necessity of special legislation for their protection, and also to provide chat railroad men shall not be over- worked, which proposed legislation will be offered RS an amendment to the interstate law. The senator was originally opposed to this bill, but his recent adventure and the fact that has but one leg anyhow has brought him to its support in around turn. - The political quid nuncs have been aroused from their summer languor by the visit of -Speaker Carlisle to the capital, but that distihguished gentleman declares in an interview that he is simply here on depart- mental business, and that no political significance whasever attaches to his presence in the city, and he further states that be knows nothing of the democratic conference about newstopor- hive had so 1 , ;.'4!: u.s lee a discovered in the United States treasury, this timeeon account of the paymasters of the army, many of whose balances have been found to be crooked. From a casual investigation of the books of the accounting officers of the treasury, it is shown that a num- ber of these army paymasters have not had a full settlement with the government in four or five years. Some of the bonds of the defaulting officials have expired, and the out- come will probably be the loss of several thousand dollars to the Unit- ed States and a number of officers degraded. The supreme councii of the Amer- ican Legion of Honor has just ad- journed after an unusually pleasant and interesting meeting in this city. A new feature intiaxluced into their financial economy, is the guarantee fund of $500,000, to be accumulated from assessments of the benefit fund from time to time. It is believed that a trust fund of $800,000 will be accumulated irm two years. Summer is -the favorite season of suicidal mania, and I belive 'Wash- ington heads- tire list it) suicides. SeIf-niurder here is a common occur- rence; in two days this summer I know of three Attempts at suicide__ two of which were successful. Some of the victims are dismimssd govern- ment clerks; others are cranks or penniless strangers, and some are residents of the city who become de- spondent and do not think life worth living. Only this week the police arrested a recently discharged got'. - • . ut clerk who had just shot and was wildly flourishing • wo iistols, to the imminent peril of Minily and his lamrdlady.

THE WOMEN'S COLUMN. Twenty thousand women Knights of Labor are organized, in the city of New York alone, for mutual protec- tion. Like the fabled Amazons, they are ready to assert and defend their rights, but not, as they did, with the sword. They will be com- pelled to demand the ballot for their own defense, and when they do, the great army of organized labor will rally to their side. ADMINISTRATIVE ABILITY OF WOMEN. I have been much impressed in reading historical studies of nations with which we are little acquainted, at. the frequency with which I came across instances of high administra tive ability on the part of women. shown under circumstances where we have little reason to look for it. I recently stumbled upon an instance in the history of China at the present time. Some fourteen years ago the Em- peror Tung Chi died without issue, and a council of princes chose the present emperor, Kwang Hsu, a child three years of age, as his suc- cessor. The management of the empire during his minority passed into the hands of two empresses dowager—the mother and aunt, re- spectively, of the deceased monarch. The two sisters, as eo-regents, car- ried on the government with unusu- al vigor and success till 1881, when one of them, the \empress of the eastern palace,\ died, leaving the whole power in the hands of her sis- ter, Tzu Hsi, \empress of the western palace.\ Now' the instances would be rare in which the absolute power over a vast empire could be shared equally by two men without harm to the efficiency of the government. History shows that double rulerships, as well as triumvirates, are apt to prove disastrous in their conse- quences, and it is evidence of much unselfishness as well as ability upon the part of these ladies, that their joint rule should be successful. But the survivor's reign has been even moore distinguished, and I read in General Wilson's recent work on (bin a that \it is asserted by the best informed foreigners in Pekin that she has proved herself to be the ablest ruler of Chi ma since the days of Klenlung,\ whose reign was con- temnporaneous with the life of George Washington. She is fifty-three years of age, and is said to give the closest personal attention to public business. She has never been seen by a foreign official, and, so far as is known, takes no notice or account of their doings. Yet she is supposed to be a liberal, or to incline toward liberalism and progress in her ideas. She has seen the entire country restored to peace amid comparative prosperity under her rule, and her dominion, at the surrender of it to her ward, on the 5th of February, 1887, was undis- puted to the very outermost limits of the empire. And yet the women of China are cut off from educational alvantages equal to tl nee of men; they are kept in Oriental seclusion from early youth, and less ought to be expected of them than of men. Yet the expe- rience of China seems to be the same as that of other countries. In the few cases where women have been invested with administrative func- tions, they have, as a rule, been emi- nently successful. I have read of late in several arti- cles written by anti -suffragists, ar- guments drawn from the supposed incapacity of the female mind for the higher kinds of intellectual activity. It is repeated, ad nauseam, that wo- men have never originated any great intellectual movement, have never written any epic or dramatic master- pieces, etc. Now, if this were true, t ng it foolish ti trg i n 3 it, (though a very poor one) for passing a law forbidding all women from writing epic or dramatic poetry and originat- ing great intellectual movements; but it would not seem to be a good argument for excluding her.from ad- ministrative duties, which are fields of usefulness for which she has shown a special aptitude wherever she has been tried; yet these are the only do- mains mom which she is excluded to -day by the inconsistency of legis- lation framed wholly by the other Wieloam D.

The day of reckoning is coming, and when it comes the judges will mourn over their folly. \Rum did it.\ Woman's vote was not for sale at the saloons, and hence, woman as a voting quanity was in the way of politicians whose success depends upon making political cur- rency of the franchise; and the \con- stitution,\ that venerable and bald- headed old hum -bug, that was so of- ten and so successfully appealed to in the time of chattle slavery—was made to put its big and unclean foot npon the necks of one-half the citi- zens of Washington Territory. And none of our great party organs have uttered a protest against a gigantic wrong which, if it had been perpe- trated upon the black men of any southern state, would have raised a howl from every republican sheet in America. JAMES G. CLARE. AN OBJECT LESSON. It is not supposed that the major- ity of men are intentionally unjust to women. They accept custom and the force of tradition, amid leave wo- men at evem y disadvantage politically, without much thought about it. They need an object lesson. What more opportune occasion for this than the centennial observance of the adoption of the constitution, in Phil- adelphia, on the 17th inst.? Let Mrs. Julia Ward Howe, Mary A. Liv- ermore, Lucretia Mott's daughters, and Mary Grew appear somewhere in the great audience, seated with Chinese men and unpardoned cril- nals from the state prision. Let a banner over say: 'Political Equals.\ Then, in the procession, let the army of educated women graduates of our schools arid colleges follow behind the still larger army of ignorant, un- washed men who are all voters, and let these women bear a banner with the words: \We follow our political superiors.\ Mrs. Cleveland, Mrs. Garfield and Mrs. Hayes should be in this procession. Would not such an exhibit open blind eyes to the de- gradaiion of women? Would they not see what the state loses, when all male scalawags out of prision may vote and no good women may do so. LCCY STONE. WOMAN'S COURAGE AT CHATSWORTH. The Chicago News says: \From the stories of eye -witnesses, the conduct of the women at the railway accident at Chatsworth was extremely creditable. Those who died met death with heroic bravery, and those who were fortunate enough to escape did so after rendering those about them all the aid possible. There are some who are made strong. by great dangers or emergencies. The Chatsworth women are of this sort, and dozens of them had hardly extracted themselves from the wreck before they busied themselves carieg for the wounded amid smoothing the pillows of the dying. The attending physicians attribute the recovery of a great many solely to the minister- ing care of the noble and unselfish women.\ Col. Botkln on Montana. In responce to the toast, Montana —\The common shrine at which the oldest pioneer and youngest pilgrim is aim equally devoted worshipper,\ Col. Alex. C. Botkin made the fol- lowing speech at the meeting of the Pioneers' society at Helena: Ladies and gentlemen: In my as- pirations to be a pioneer I seemed to have played in hard luck. I was born in Wisconsin at a very early stage of its existence as a territory, but when the pioneers of that state organized their association I found that I had (idled by a few months to get myself born seen enough to be eligible for n.embership. Coming to Montana. I discovered that I was barred by a proviso of the constitu- tion of your society, which you had placed beyond the reach of amend- ment. Now, to punish your pride and exclusiveness, I wish to remind you that \pioneer\ is a relative term, amid that if you were to compare yourself to Lewis and Clarke . you are only pilgrims and you ought to be looking at your feet to see if the blis- ters are still there. Proceeding up- on these lines, when your ranks have thinned, as, alas! they must, I intend to organize a society to be called the \Deputy Pioneers of Montana,\ and I will include in this organization all those who came into this territory on a hull teani or a jerky, they being bouad together by the recollections of common suffering. We will per- mit no one to ask what the reasons were that induced us to leave our what were Our which yeu have given me in respond ing to Montana. I cannot forget that we have an area of 114,000 square miles, or over 19,006,000 of acres; that within that area we have miner- al richer and more varied than ami t y other portion of the globe; that oel^ valleys and hillsides, with their won- derful fertility of soil, could produce . food for an unlimited populatioe that we have a people equaled by few for their intelligence, cultivation energy amid enterprise; that we have. \The splintered ridge That parts the northern showers;' That we have the heada of two mighty streams of water communica; tion; that theirs is the pert to tell the world that the vast domain through which they flow is and shall forever be one and inseparable. This is but simple recital of facts that are within the knowledge of us all. But when we confront or estimate what the fu. ture will be, the boldest imagination may wisely halt. Among the class of men who are recognized as bene- factors of their race, give the fore- most rank to founders of empires; and you, who, through toil, hied - ships and privation, have made the present actual and the future possi- ble, will have upon the future of Montana a prouder monument than \storied urn or animated bust.\ This . is a fitting connection for that which should be urged in season and out of season,until our just demand is cow: plied with, the demand for the ad- mission of Montana into the Union of the States. We have recently been visited by a number of emineet con- gressmen from the east, and I wonm:. dered when they saw this city, with it dhurches and school houses, sind all the appliances of an advanced civ- ilization; of a commonwealth of 150- 000'souls, equal to them in thrift amid enlightenment, I wonder how they would reconcile it to their sense of right that this people should be lie: prived of some of the most precious rights that attach to AmeriCan citi- zens. It is a happy circumstance that you have with you to -night a Samuel Adams and a Pittrick Henry.' who will not fail to reiterate the de- mand that the people of the west shall be emancipated from their colo- nial condition, and that before these pioneers about me shall have passed aways and gave place to another gent' oration, they shall be permitted to stancre'rect in the full stature of po- litical manhood. Mr. Chairman, I close by expressing the hope that through all the successive changes that are to be, Montana will prove loyal to her traditions, and worthy of her pioneers. A Successful Cast.
