Dublin April 26. Harrington M. P. in
a speech at the meeting of the National
League charged the police with intimida

them from joining the league and subscribing
to the testimonial of Parnell. Many men
have been lying in prisons for a week and
some for years without a public trial. They
were tried by "hole and coroner" inqu'ries
and frienJs were unable to offer any evidence
to extricate them. One informer was suffi-
cient for the Government no matter how
many persons could prove their innocence.
The persons accused.were never brought lace
to face with the informer. He was even daily
tempte . wi h IT rc of freedom money or
bribes; "whisky often induced him to swear
away the liberties of his fellow men." (Cries
of "shame shame.") Hsrrington said he
could prove that such overtures had been
made to severjl men In the Galway jail by
detectives who had tried to induce them to
swear away the liberties of men not in custo-

AltT IN SAN ANTONIO.
The importance of decorative art as applied
to the household is now penerallv admitted.
As a result we see many changes which
augur well lor the future of art in the city and
in the State. Our wealthy citizens think in
infra dig to live in shanties as they did in
years gone by and houses in hieh order of
architecture are rising in all parts of the city
the calcimincd walls are giving place to ar-
tistic paper hangings and the homely furni-
ture gives place to the modernized form of
antique furniture. All this is satisfactory as
an evidence of cultivated taste prevalent in
the city but in one thing our citizens are
neglectful and that is in the attention paid to
painting and sculpture which ate the true ac-
cessories of an elegant house. In the well-
furnished houses of some of our citizens are to
be found cheap inartistic chromos the dupli-
cates of which can be seen in the dwellings
of the poor or in the necro shantv. This
should certainly not be because it is not cred
itable to the taste of the owner and lurnlshes
no encouragement to art. There is an old
proveib that art begets art. This is true. The
more artistic productions that lay around us the'
more is public admiration incited and the
more is the youth inspired with a love of the
beautiful in nature and art. The contempla-
tion of an artistic production has in many in-
stances. Inenlml thonrli.l nn.l
talent genius. An improvement and culture
of art in San Antonio may be the means of
diuujwc lonn a genius who shall enshrine
not only the city and the State but the Re-
public with immortal honor.

ex-Governor Hubbard of Hartford Con-
necticut who four years ago set the fashion
for rich girls to elope with their father's coach-
men has just got a divorce in New Haven
from Frederick Shepard on the ground of
abandonment. As he made no counter
charges it is supposed that the illiterate hus
band and his educated wife had mutually
agreed to separate. It was while teaching
Shepard to read and write that l8-y ears-old
Miss Nellie imagined she lost her heart.
Eleven days after their secret marriage
the ex-Governor was confronted with the
wedding certificate sent him by Shepard's
parents. Nellie admitted that she was mar-

designs in the latter being very eccentric.
Plain and reversible ribbons of two colors or
two materials are lavishly used for flat bows

drapery of poufs and other back breadths
and for trimming bodices and sleeves. Loops
of ribbons are employed to edge tunics

As bodice trimmings they are much worn.

Dinner and ball dresses are excessively ele-
gant and luxurious in style. Both light and
dark colors are worn and thick and thin tis-

It will be gathered from the foregoing des-
cription that trains worn with ball dresses or
ie fact with any skirt are arranged so as to
permit of their being easily raised for dancing
or in passing through a crowd or narrow pas-
sage. They may be worn from the waist
and quite loose from the skirt or attached at
the bend of the knee. In the former case an
elegant woman will know how to carry her

arm. In either case a button on some part
ol the underskirt and a loop on the train
both hidden under some ornament will serve
to drape the train and are fastened or de-

or course be trimmed as it is shown by the
raising of the train. Short dresses are worn
by young girls and by young married ladles.
