Ilia body waa placed lu a plain coffin by Undertaker Young and taken to ; the cemetery this afternoon.

In the Circuit Court Justice Learned presiding, Attorney - General O'Brien moved the Halt caao for trial, and In an argument contended that there waa no rea- son why tho case should not go on at nnce, as counsel eugaged by Mr. I'lalt, and who were present, were fully acquainted with tbo caso In all Its phases, and were as well able to try it as though Mr. McFarland, Bcnlof counsel, were present. Ilo alto read all the corroipondenco which had taken place between himself and counsel for i'lalt, and contended that all the defendant had been striving for since the ease commenced was delay, lie added mat tho only question Involved was one of fact aa to tbe residence ot tbo defendant. Harris objected to tbo case being forced to trial In tho absence of counsel who hud had It In charge from the outset, and submitted an afflddvlt of Mr. McFarland to the effect that he waa actually engaged In the trial of a cause m the United States Court In New York cltr liud would be detained by It until Friday. Mr. Harris said the main reason urged by the Attorney-Genera- l for trjlng the caae waa that ho waa going out ot ufneo and would not be able to try lb Even so, his deputy, who was coming In, could take It up, und It necessary, employ bis predecessor to try It. There waa no ponuUr domand for the trial at this time, or. If there was, then the Attorney-Gener- was culpable In not having moved In tbo matter three veum ana tntttparl nf nnw Mr. Harris further contended that more than n more question of tact waa Involved. Aa a matter ot fact, there were many very Important questions lnvolted, and they could only be tried ti) counsel who was familiar with the cose. Mr. Harris fur- ther asserted that politics were behind the move- ment to fono the esse to trial now. Jusllco Learned decided that tbe ewe must go over fur tho term.

CLEVELAND HELPS BUSINE83. 8be Patronizes Washington Merchants and They Appreciate Ilor. SriCtAL TU TU W0RLD.1 WAsniNGTON, Dec Hu, There Is Just now no more Industrious Christmas shopper than Mrs. Cleveland. Hardly a dsy passes that sno Is not seen on the arenas peering with a critical eye Into the store windows, gsy with holidsy goods, or standing at the Counters selecting presouts for tho long list of friends slio Inviiriablj romembers at this festive season. Mrs. Cleveland la beginning to bo regarded by ths milliners and dressmakers oi Washington with the utmost favor. It has long bceu tbu habit or the lames of the torn tun residing In Hie city to go to New York or l'hllidclphia to do all their shopping. Mrs. Cleveland, however, nua set the fashion of patronizing local merchants, whose business has, in consequence, recelieu no Inconsiderable Impetus. Not long ago the first lady of the land \dis- covered a very tasteful milliner on whom alio at onco bestowed her patronage. Tbe \Mrs. Cleve- land bonnet \ was a bewitching uffalr of scarlet Bilk braids, ribbons and flowors, and waa exhibited with much pride by the milliner to her other cus- tomers. As a result there are now scores of similar bonnets to be seen on tho avenue any pleasant day, worn by old, middle-age- d and young ladles, all of whom delight to acknowledge the superior tosto of the mistress of the White House. A bright little shop girl, who uses her snapping black eyes to good purpose, has been making quite a study ot Mrs. Cleveland's shopping manners. Shosald to Tub Would correspondent \Do yon know, I waited ou Mrs. Clovelsnd several times before I knew who sac was ; She waa over so Eleasant and kind when she bought anything of me, of having me send homo every llttlo paper of pins or bit ot laio, as most of our customers do, she would carry it with her. Why, I have seen ber tske quite a big bundle nnder her arm and walk a block or two without even going to ber carriage to leavo the package. I tell you, sir, I am always snro I have found a real lady when she is willing to carry a bnndle on the street. One day Mrs. Cleveland bought quite a lot of thlnga, and when I asked ber wbero I should send them she said, 'to trie White House,' just as quietly aa I wonld aay 'to Capitol Hill,' Why, I nave some lsdy customers who, If they could send their things to tho White House, wonld shout tbe directions loud enough to be heard a mile. I lust think .Mrs. Cleveland Is too nice and modest for an) thing.\ JL BERNHARDT WEDS A TRINCESS. Ills Wife Connected with a Ilrauoh of the lloiiitpnrle Family. Paris, Dec. so.

Forty-fiv- e per cent. of this increase represents Scandinavia. Ireland comes next with an Increase of SO per cent. The groater part of the paupers sent back are taken from the oharUable institutions of ihu State. In somo esses where tbe immigrant becomes a pauper soon afier landing hu Is sent back ut tho aleamaulp companj's expense, but in most cases Ill's burden falls upon the Mate. In a low cases the paupers attempt to return, but they seldom outwit the officers. During the yesr ending Oct. 1 the authorities have returned about two hundred paupers tu foreign countries. About oue hundred and seventy-nr- o of thesu weut to Great Britain atid twenty-fiv- e to Canada. In audition they have returned 600 paupi rs to other btatos, the most of whom were foreign born. About three hundred stowaways were Interviewed by the State officers, and those who were thought to be unable to support thorn-bcIv- were sent back.

Homo of tbo Scientific Jokes Flayed Upon tbo Credulous. IProvi th. San Trantiieo Call, Dr. Harvey W. Darkness, President of tbe Acad- emy ot Sciences, was asked by a Call man yester- day what bo thought of tho reported discovery In Arizona of giant skeletons of men. Two such re- ports navo como lately over the wires to San Fran- cisco, In each instance stress being laid upon the enormous tusks, rather than teeth, that were found lu the jaws of each skeleton. In reply to the query tbe doctor laughed and said: 'Tlieso ) urns belong to tho same category as the stories of lizards and snakes cast from the stomach of peo-pl- o, of frogs found Imbedded In coal, and other marvels of like tort that are periodically dished up for tbe benefit ot credulous readers. Tills skeleton romancer, howeier, has spoiled his market by aeuionlng his goods too highly. No human being of eight feet or any other number of feet In lulght could possibly luno teeth tlirto and a half Inches In length. 'Iheso ilnnt stories crop np periodically, tho locality of their finding belu; changed to be Bure, but lu other respects tho same ilavor ot untruth pervading them all. Every one of those tales winds up with the sug- - frrstlon that the traces ot a giant race have at last Now, the fac is that all sclentlllo re- search conclusively proves that there not only has never existed a race of glaats, but that all tne people of the past were, aa a rule, amallcr In their dlineuslons than are the people of tue present day. Tho coats of armor prove this to havo been the case with the men ot the Middle Axes, and In like manner Is It pro cd by relics of Home and Greece. I have measured many Egyptian mum- mies with similar result, and skeletons of tbo pre- historic Irish nice added their quota tu the same effect. And so It has happened In every land wnere ethnologists have had opportunity to study the bones of tho people, lho phjslcn!
