Divorce In Chicago, Philadelphia Times. A Chicago woman wanted a divorce from her huslinnd because ho as ex-cessively round-shouldere- She said that when she planted her fect on his back they were continually slipping iu.;m. nut tae crouoie lay in tne Tact tha the definition is a favorite one with Mr. Whistler, and Mr. Wilde did not gay so in his article. And this is friendship! It is probable that Mr. Whistler ran his fingers through his already artistically rum-pled hair and threw The Nineteenth Century down in disgust. At any rate, ho straight-way wrote a letter to London Truth, in which he accused Mr. Wilde of plagiarism. Mr. Wilde replied, through the same me-dium, In these gentle and aesthetic words: "I can hardly imagine that the public are in the vory smallest degree interested in the shrill shrieks of 'plasiarist' that proceed from time to time out of the lips of silly vanity or incompetent mediocrity. However, as Mr. James Whistler has had the imperti-nence to attack me with both venom land vulgarity in your columns, 1 hope you will allow me to state that the assertions con-tained in his letter are as deliberately untrue as they are deliberately offens-ive. The definition of a disciple as one who has thocour-- ' james whistler. nge of the opinions of his master is really too old even for Mr. Whistler to be allowed to claim it; and as for borrowing Mr. Whistler's Ideas about art, the only thoroughly original ideas I have ever heard hint express have had reference to his own superiority as a painter over painters greater than himself. It is trouble for any gentleman to have to notice the lucubratious of so ill bred and ignorant a person as Mr. Whistler, but your publication of his inso-lent letter left me no option in the matter." What a pity it is thi:t all this did not occur before Gilbert and Sullivan wrote their de-lightful opera, "Patiencel" The craze after Wilde which that Opera satirizes in such an amusing manner has, by the way, become a thing of the past. Moreover, Mr. Wilde has shorn his long locks and no longer wean knee breeches. Perhaps he and Whistler will fight a duel. Who knows? WHEN FRIENDS FALL OUT. Artist WlilMliu' and Owar Wilde; tho iEallieta, Have Quurveled. It would have surprised the ancients to have received cards of invitation bearing the Inscription, "Prize fight to a finish betwt'ou Mr. Damon and Mr. l'ythins," but their e (supyir. that it viisteU) would be an water unto wine could it be compared to Hint felt by modern Londoners over tho quarrel between Whistler, the artist, and Wilde, the aesthete. Until very recently the artist aud the aes-thete were brothers; they ivulkod una iu arm along the hili road of fame, whilo on world gazod at them in mute admira-tion. They agreed with each other, or at least they said they did, which answered quite as well. They hobnobbed together, praised each other at all times and places, and together mourned the Degeneracy of the Modern Artistic Sense. But, alae! the golden days have flown. They are friends no longer. Whi9tler picked up, not long ago, a copy of The Nineteenth. Century, and saw that his fiieud Wilde had a contribution therein. It was entitled "The Decay of Lying." Those unfortuuata people who are neither Whistler ites nor Wildeites, but are merely mortals, cannot apprecinto the pleasure with ', which the artist ' scanned ttie polish-- . ed paragraphs and J neatly turned ' phrases written by his friend, the ses-- t h e t e , on that sweetly suggestiye oscar wiug. subject, "The Decay of Lying," but perhaps they cau imagine it. Paragragh after paragraph Mr. Whistler read, but suddeuly he stepped. What was the matter f Why, he had discovered that his dear friend had violated one of the of their friendship he had let a chance to exalt Whistler slip by unnoticed.

Senator Mitchell's sentimeuts in re-gard to the exclusion of tho Chinese from the United States willjmect with the hearty endorsement of every American citizen who has the best interests of the country at heart. During the discus-sion on the Chinese exclusion question Senator Dawes wanted to know what use there would bo in having Chinese diplomats admitted if they had no Chi-nese interests to look after. Senator 'Mitchell replied: "I would rather ex-clude the Chinese diplomats than to permit the country to be overrun by the yellow hordes of the Cliineso empire." That sentiment is in accord with the law of which is the lirst law of nature. It expresses the situation in a nutshell. Wo want no more Chinese in this country. They come here and sal) the vitals out of the white man's resources, and send back to their own country all their savings. Those that are hero now of course will remain as long as they please, but if tho gates are not closely watched they will bo constantly reinforced. If the present population of Chinese could be 'induced to leave this country, it would bo a good thing, We have no use for the celestials or their diplomats, and tho people of the United States would not care if all relations with China were severed, Mors Ct Aim lo liss Calling at lie Fair etc,, etc., and at PRICES THAT BEAT ANY IN THE WEST, DO.T FORGEF THE PLACE FIRST DOOR WEST OF THE CLOCK.

KlttllKHY, Somewhere among its exchaiigesTilE Timks remembers to have seen an in-quiry as to the possibility of raising seals in Ureal Salt Lake. Well, w hy not? Our mountains and valleys pro-duce every mineral of value to be found elsewhere, why not expect as much of Utah's salt and fresh waters? Shad, salmon, oysters, eels, ami the like have been planted in Utah with more or less success, why not sea lions and seals? Let Uncle Sam plant a colony on the uninhabited islands in our Mediterra-nean sea. and eventually derive a rev-enue from their skins? Will our dele-gate in congress pause in his laborious efforts for ion and the church long enough to move for an appropriation to establish and foster a colony of seals ut our very doors? i ' KMt'KKOK William, so It is stated, has written a letter to the Russian czar ad-vising him to make liberal concessions to the people. This is good advice, but it; is doubtful whether the tyraut will , pay any attention to it. GUILTY, BUT ONLY TECHNICALLY. The Uueer Trial of a Female Physician In a Philadelphia Court. About eight years ago the Pennsylvania legislature passed a bill, which was signed by tho governor and became a law, prescribing that all practicing phy-sicians should be registered with the protbonotary., A violation of this law is punishable by line or impris-onment, but there have been few pros-ecutions. Consequently when, In October, an arrest was made it created quite a nn mart Baldwin, stir in medical cir-cle?, and interest was added by the fact that the accused was a woman. Dr. Mary Baldwin, according to her own story, graduated from the Eclectic college in Netr York In 1878, and her certificate was registered iu New York city two years later. Afterwards she practiced in various parts of New York state and iu New Jersey, where her certificate was registered in the county of Essex. She went to the Women's Homeo- - patbic hospital in Philadelphia in September, 1889, where she was em-ployed simply In t he dispensary. She took her diploma to a Dr. Thomas, as directed, and left it, with $5, with him. The diploma was to be presented to the faculty be-fore registration. There was a long delay, and finally she was told that shemustgo through a college examina- - DK. I.UCT BD8ENBARK. thought this unjust, for she had left college twelve years before. Various people examined her in anatomy and other branches of medical science, and she was undergoing an examina-tion in surgery when she was arrested. The arrest was made at the instance of Dr. Lucy Busenbark. Dr. Baldwin asserted on the witness stand that the board of mauagers knew that she was not registered. She had only treated a few poor patients at the those on the outside who we: e too ill to go there. After tedious argument it was decided by the judge that Dr. Baldwin was guilty, but only techutcally. She had made no effort to evade the law, and sentence was suspended. T '1'nn circulation of Tiik.

THE NEXT COMMANDEKOFTHKU. A.K. California, in connection wilh the comrades of the entire Pacilie dope, will feel that after twenty' years of ac-tive interest and service in behalf of the r. A. K., that the commander-in-chie- f should eoue from the country west of the Rocky mountains. At the next meeting of tho National department at Boston, it is hoped that the eastern, middle and southern states will recog-nize the claim of comrades ou the Pa-cilie coast and gracefully accord with it. That claim will designate us a can-didate for 'the ofllco a gallant soldier and a gentleman without fear and with-out reproach, whose continuous services date from April 15, 18(11, as a volunteer to December, 1870, when lie was placed on the retired list of the army through disability, having left his right leg in the "Wilderness." Salt Lake certainly needs .an elec-tric police alarm, and it is hoped that Chief Young will succeed in his effort to induce the city council to adopt some such system. It would add much to the cftlcieney of tho department. The city council should not hesitate to puss the ordinance permitting admis-sion fees lo bo charged for Sunday en-tertainments of a reputable character. The law is now evaded by nieuns of collections. There is certainly no harm in concerts, lectures, etc., and we know of no reason why tickets should not bo sold for such entertainments on Sun-day. AML'HEMENTS. A IRIUi JUNE. The audieiice that greeted the inimit-able Nat Goodwin at the Salt Lake theater last night was one which was not only large but enthusiastic, (and well it might be, for Nat has lost none of his old time ability lo please, and iu fact if sllcli a thing is possible he is bet-ter than ever. "A Cold Mine" is a portrayal of American life and manners which, while being especially true to nature and possessing less of the grosser exag-gerations so common iu the more mod-ern plays, is clean cut in dialogue and is a never-endin- g mine of wit and hu-mor of the most refined character. Nat Goodwin and his company arc especially udaplcd to the various purls, and in his impersonation of VVoolcott thu original Goodwin is perfectly at home. In fact he is not Goodwin but Woolcotl, This is all that can be said, unless perchance it may lie asserted that the character is one of the most pleasing ever put ou the American stage. Miss Durfee, as tho English girl, is worthy of mention, while Isabella Coe, our old friend Mrs. Brooklyn Bridge of "The Tin Soldier," is as much at home in the role of a widow ns thu sweet wife of a man of means. Miss Coe is a gen-eral favorite everywhere, and she is es-pecially liked in Salt Lake. In fact she is deserving of all praise, for no one strives harder to please than she. The other characters in the play are all up in their parts and acquit them-selves creditably. "A Gold Mine" closes its engagement tonight. IDA HITCHCOCK. On the eveningof the 15th Salt Lake's own Ida, assisted by some of the best local talent in the city, will give an en-tertainment at tho Salt Lake theater, which will bo one of the features of tho season. Miss Gray (or Hitchcock) is a sweet little woman who is so well known iu Salt Lako that any introduc-tion is unnecessary, She is an accom-plished lady and a perfect elocutionist, and her efforts heretofore in behalf of every worthy cause in Salt Lake en-title her to the hearty support of every person in Zion whether. saint or sinner, Don't forget the date, next Tuesday evening. The Fort Douglas reservation is one, of the most beautifully located military posts in tho country, and with the proper expenditure of a reasonable amount of money its appearuuee can bo greatly improved. Au effort Is to be made to secure an appropriation of 9100,000 to Improve tho buildings and beautify the ground?. It is hoped that the petitioners will succeed. Notice. The Salt Lake Real Estate Exchange will meet at Elk club building ou East Second South street, this eveuing at 7:30 o'clock. All members of tho exchange arc requested to bo present and all licensed real estate dealers who contem-plate joining the exchange. H. C. Lett, President. John Montgomery, jr, Secretary. "MOHTLY FOOI.8." A person lu applying the stigma of "fool" to au individual takes upon him-self some risk. Include the individuals in a community, average them all as fools, or "mostly fools," and every per-son in the crowd accepts his iiilinites-siina- l portion of tho general dose as a joke. A recent pamphlet, entitled "Mostly Fools," is addressed to that long suffer-ing conglomerate of fools called the "public." The basis of the author's argument, as well as of his charge that the public are "mostly fools," is in-volved in tho maxim of the financially wise who work tins machine, that "to tako thousands of dollars from the few is 'well, " but to lake pennies from the million is better.'.' And as the few shrewd takers get hold of some public franchise by paying liberally at the outset in cash, if it cannot be ob-tained by bribery or by liberal prom-ises, then, seeuro in their monop-oly, rake in tho pontiles or the dimes from the million until their dividends on money luvosted return them for-tunes. When tho public awakes to the fact that it is being fleeced, tho stock pi the fleecer is watered and tho net pro-fits are scattered over a larger surface us a blind, but are finally concentrated ill tho original number of pockets. With the rapid growth of towns, cities and country these public franchises in-crease in number and grow valuable with ago. United by tho "adhesive power of public plunder," these various monopolies combine iu common de-fense, employ tho best of legal talent und tho most adroit of malo and female lobbyists, ami liko tho devil fish, fasten their poisonous tenneles on tho body politic. Combinations of suffering classes protest, vole and squirm in vain. Endurance becomes a virtue aud monopolies rido rough-sho- d over their victims. What is the public going to do about it? At least something cau and ought to bo learned by experience. Tho public properly and franchises unalienated can bo more se-curely guarded, und grants of value can bo limited ' as to time iu their leasing. Cities of rapid growth should inako haste slowly in lightly parting with franchises grow-ing valuable with age. Salt Lako City might profit by taking these tilings into thoughtful consideration. All experi-ence goes to show that those cities w hich owu and improve their water, lightiug and transit rights get better service at much less cost than thoso which have parted with nucIi franchises in haste, only to repent at leisure. But if these valuable rights are leased to private parlies, let them bo sold for I he shortest time possible, and at public aucliou to tho highest bidder. , If it is true that tho Vandorbilts have obtained a largo holding iu the Union Pacific, and that at tho annual election next month tho board of directors will lie in their interests, it will be a good thing for tho Union Paci-fic as well as for tho Vuuderbift system, It will give tho Vandorbilts a through lino from New York to Ogden ami Salt Lako, and to Portland, Oregon, and in all probability tho extension of the Union Pacific will be rapidly pushed, t hrough to San Diego. This will make a Vanderbilt transcontinental line from Now York to tho Pacific coast, with two western seaport terminals! Portland ami San Diego, forming the greatest railroad system iu the world. Do photographers know that they waste 1,000,000 every year in silver and gold-th- row it away with the washings of photographs? That is what a writer in The Photographic Times tells us. At least half of this waste can be saved, and the economical photographer can in tima become rich from his savings In a double sense. There is one point that never seems to occur to many Ameri-cans. It is that it is wicked to waste anything that can be of use to man. It was hopod by the crowned heads of Europe that the republic of tho United States of Brazil would prove a dismal failure, und that monarchy would soon bo restored in that country. Tho untourutg of the old world, however, are doomed to disappointment, for tho Bra-zilian republic is a brilliant success. Thu people of tliut country havo demon-strated their ability to rulo themselves and that they are republicans iu all that tho word implies. One of tho latest de-crees of tho Brazilian government is for tho liberty of tho press, liberty of asso-ciation and of public meetings. This is a guarantee of freo speech, one of the most cherished rig' of a republic. With a freo press ana free speech tho rights of tho peoplo aro sure of being maintained. The Secretary of tho Interior recent-ly directed the dismissal of a govern-incu- t clerk employed in tho genenll land oflieo for tho approval of a case for patenting where the land was no-toriously mineral in Us character. Evi-dently the clerk had been subsidized in tho interest of the grauleo at all events his connection with tho is-- j siiauco of the patent was such as lo sat-l-isfy the secretary that he was uot long-er tilted for the position in tin; depart-ment in which ho wus employed. Sec-retary Noble went still further. He has ordered au Investigation into tho methods employed by tho attorneys in the case, and if they art! found guilty of collusion willi tho elerk they will bo disb.ired from further practice in tho interiur department. The parties iuter-psle- d in tho patent have also been di-rected lo return the saniclo the general laud ollicu for cancellation, and upon their refusal to do so they are 'hrealen-e-with prejudice in other cases which they have pending for adjudication be-fore the departmeut. lu past adminis-trations there has no doubt been a great deal of fraud practiced in securing land patents, aud it is gratifying to see that the business of the interior department is being closely watched in all its de-tails.
