Old Sign* In Favor. [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 7 April 1890
Old Sign* In Favor. The latest trick of some tradesmen is shown In a desire to display old-looking signs at their business places. "It's surprising, said a sign-painter to a reporter the other day, "to note row anxious some newly establish d firms are to purchase signs that have seen service. A sign that is exposed to the elements for a number of tears Is bound to assume that weatherbeaten front that is the pride and drawing card of the old and successful merchant I have had twenty odd years' experience at outdoor advertising, and i never saw this old-sign craze so rampant as at the present lime. To meet the demand 1 have worked hard of late months, and I have hit upon a plan by which I can construct at a lew days' notice a sign that will have all the appearances of having been through the water.

REAL ROMANCE. [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 7 April 1890
REAL ROMANCE. A Spanish Grandee Weds a Polish I'fUKiant. ". A Tery interesting wedding, which cannot be aptly described as a marriage a la mode, or a love match, or even a mere mesalliance, but partakes of the nature of all three, has lately taken place in an obscure Polish village, says a St. Petersburg correspondent of the Boston Herald, the bridegroom being no less a personage than a Spanish grandee, the Governor of the Philippine Islands, aud the bride a charming, artless Polish peasant girl. The match was brought about in this way. A year ago the Spanish dignitary obtained leave of absence, and paid a visit to Paris for the sole purpose of seeking for a suitable life partner in that International matrimonial mart. The qualifications required iv the bride were few, but important: she should profess the Koman Catholic faith, and should have something more valuable than her face for her fortune. His vigilant eyes soon fell upon a beautiful Polish maiden, who, though a peasant, cou...
THE CITY OF PARIS. [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 7 April 1890
THE CITY OF PARIS. Passengers Still Relating Incidents of Their Memonble Trip. London-. April The passengers of the City of Paris have not yet got through talking about their experience on the waterlogged steamer. The actual danger they were in does not seem any less when considered from terra firma. A score of passengers say they heard nothing of any offer on the part of the captain of the Adriatic to carry them back to New York. K. F. Downing, a Custom-house broker of New York, said: "li the captain of the Adriatic made such an offer. Captain Watkins never told of it, or almost every m*. would have gone. I know a New Yort man who would have offered $1000 to the captain of the Adriatic to take him back. Why, most of tho passengers would have gone on a boat bound for San Francisco around the Horn rather than have stayed on ttie sinking City of Paris. The coolest man ou hoard," Downing says, "was Holmau. the liver-pad man. lloluiau was playing poker when the explosion occurred, and a...

"THANKS, GO AHEAD." An Explanation From Captain Roberts of the Steara-r Adriatic.

A boat in charge of the chief officer came alongside saying Captain Watkins desired to be towed into Queenstown. lie theu told me the condition of the ship. 1 declined to do as requested, but told him I would go to her to save life. While they were talking another steamer hove in sight. She was bound west ami I thought she was the City of Chester of the same line.

PENNSYLVANIA POLITICS. [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 7 April 1890
PENNSYLVANIA POLITICS. Congressman Dalzell Openly Declares War Against Senator Quay. Washington, April 6.— The Sunday Herald says: "Congressman Dalzell has at last declared war against Senator Quay, and yesterday the Pittsburg representative came out flat-footed in an Interview and announced that he was for any man for Governor who was anti-Quay. This declaration is not a surprise to Pennsylvania Republicans, for it has been antic! ■ ated for some time. The wonder has been that Dalzell did not throw down the gauntlet ere this, but now that he has expressed himself, the country may prepare for some lively Keystone State politics. Mr. Dalzell is an ardent Republican aud not given to kicking over the party traces, but in this instance it will be found that he is with the best element of the Pennsylvania Republicans, who are bent on strangling the machine of which Senator Quay is the acknowledged boss."

Jo urn all it* 1. .liel in • iii«.-I ,-.—,. The St. Peter-burg journalists, Russian and otherwise, who are admitted to court festivities, have just sent a curious petition to the Czar. They asked to be allowed to wear on their dress-coals some small ornament with the name of the paper they represent inscribed on it, by which they might be recognized as representatives of the press, The Czar has at oi.Co granted the request, and at the next court ball all the bona fide journalists will appear adorned « itb their new badge. No one but an accredited representative of a paper will be allowed to wear the badge, the raison d'etre for which appears to lie the fact that not unfrcquently a number of gentlemen had gained admittance as press men who were much better acquainted with the art of blacking boots than with that of furnishing newspaper reports.

SOUTH AMERICAN TRADE. New England Senators Interested in the Proposed Reciprocity Treaty. , Washington, April The proposition to establish a reciprocity treaty with the South American countries as an offset to the proposed duty on hides is one to which the New England Senators and Representatives are giving a great deal of attention. "1 have not given the subject an extended consideration," said Senator Chandler yesterday, "and I would not care to pass judgment upon it without careful consideration. I should be inclined to say though that we could well establish reciprocal relations with any of the countries of the Western Hemisphere which would adopt our tariff system and schedules. I am quite inclined to believe that it would be wise to establish these relations with all countries between the borders of Canada and the Isthmus of Panama. It would not be in any sense au abandonment of any part of our system of protection and it would guarantee to us the almost exclusive traJe of the...
