My Dear Colonel: It was a pleasant surprise to receive your letter. I have often thought of you, and wondered what bad become of you. So you are still on top of the earth. Well, ever since I got out of the mud hole in New Orleans things have been coming my way pretty smooth, and I have captured this country from the Queen down—am doing them to the tuno of $10,000 a day.

The Truth. TUESDAY EVENING JULY 19 i COULDN'T FOOL HER. Even if Her Marriage License Was Torn Up, She Preserved the Frame. "I was very much amused," said a lady recently to a Philadelphia Call reporter, "at some remarks made by my washerwoman. For about a year her husband has been bed-rid-den with rheumatism, and during all that time she has tended him faithfully and toiled hard to support him. Of late he is greatly improved and is able to take short walks. On Monday the woman came as usual, and I was surprised to see her face badly bruised. I naturally asked her how it happened, and she replied that her husband had demanded money of her, and because she refused it he became angry and showed his gratitude for her many months of self-sacriticing care by beating her." '"But that wasn't all,' said she, •for that ornery nigger took our marriage 'tiflcate off the wall and tore it up and burned it.' " "Of course," said the lady, "I was shocked to hear of such cruel behavior on his part to...

The Truth. WEDNESDAY EVENING. JULY 20 MUST NOT TALE TOGETHER. Superintendent L&mon Lays Down Instructions for the Police Force. [Philadelphia Press.] Superintendent Lamon yesterday told the lieutenant that the policemen must stop conversing with citizens on the street unless in the line of their duty, and that they must not congregate for the mere purpose of talking. He called attention to the fact that an order to this effect had been issued a month ago, but the officers had not strictly obeyed it. An attachee of the department, who had gone forth to investigate a robbery, found two policemen at the point where the robbery had occurred sitting beneath an awning and taking things easy. The superintendent also said that there were nearly 15,000 houses vacated for the summer, and their protection required the officers to constantly patrol their beats. If the officers persist in violating the order, for the first offence they will be fined and for the second discharged. The...

The Truth. THURSDAY EVENING- JULY 21 A Big Strike Averted. TWENTY-FIVE HUNDRED READING EMPLOYEES OUT SIX HOURS. [Philadelphia l'rew, 20th.] Twenty-five hundred Beading railroad trainmen abruptly struck at Port Richmond yesterday at high noon. They comprised engineers, firemen, brakemen, and coal handlers. Ten times that number would have struck at nightfall had not the company compromised, and to-day scarcely a man would have been at work, and the entire system would have been idle from end to eud. The strike was of such a character and came at such a time that the coal-carrying business of the road was paralyzed for hours. The trouble came about through the examinations to which the men have been subjected in Philadelphia and in Reading. An engineer of twenty-five years' standing refused to undergo the color test and was discharged. Half a dozen firemen who could not read at sight declined to bo subjected to the " school" examination and were removed. While delegates from every div...

THE EVENING TRUTH. NUMBER 44. CURRENT COMMENT. Hrs. Langtry, [Philadelphia Press.] The remarks of Judge Field, of the United States Supreme Court, iu San Francisco on Tuesday, indicate that if Mrs. Langtry wishes to acquire citizenship in this country she will have to appear in court in the usual way and go through the regular forms. There is no apparent reason why she should not do so. If citizenship is worth having at all, it is worth acquiring iu accordance with rules which apply alike to all applicants for it. And in this case it is Mrs. Langtry who is to profit by the proceeding, and not the country. The Same Old Tune [From The Richmond Times. | If Mr. Barbour intends to act sensibly and boldly, according to the demands of the situation, he can be Senator; but if he is to utter that Riddleberger tune that has been played until it is the refrain of a dead march, then good-bye Barbour, and good-bye any other man who wants to be Democratic successor to Riddleberger.

The Truth. FRIDAY EVENING- JULY 22 Stealing in Jail. A MOUNT HOLLY CROOK ROHS THE STORE-ROOM WITHOUT DETECTION "WHILE CONFINED. Mount Holly, July 20.—For several weeks past the authorities at the Mount Holly jail have been missing a considerable number of spoons, knives and forks and other articles of valae which were taken from one of the store rooms to which some of the prisoners in the cooking department had access. An unsuccessful watch was instituted for the purpose of discovering the thief. Finally it was learned that a lot of articles such as were missing had been found at the house of George H. Williams, at Mt. Laurel, while his wife was removing her household goods out of the county. An investigation disclosed the fact that Williams, who was committed to jail on May 29, on a charge of setting fire to the barns of Freeholder George W. Thorn, in Mount Laurel Township, near Moorestown, had stolen the articles from the jail and handed them over to his wife, who was in the habit...

THE EVENING TRUTH. NUMBER 45. People's Column. All contributions to this coliimn are gratefully received, but the management will not be responsible for anything that appears therein. To the Editor of the Truth : The Democracy of Jefferson Ward has not only selected the Hon. Lyon G., the ex-office seeker, to the Convention at Roanoke, but also the Hon. Meade Hawkins, with a record and an ability to change positions, politically, that no matter what course the Convention pursues it will be in harmony with his past political actions to move ahead. If not misinformed, this gentleman was in 1882 a very prominent and persistent candidate for the position of Judge of the Hustings Court, demanded it because he was ostracised by the Democracy ; because he was a Readjustee and, as a further claim on the Readjusters, report has it that he stumped the counties for the Readjuster cause along with the Jersey Lily and the Hon. John Ambler Smith. Great guns! what a crew. Now, Mr. Editor, let the a...

The Truth. FRIDAY EVENING JULY 23 Mr. Powderly Will Not Resign. [Baltimore Sun.l Mr. Powderly, general master workman of the Knights of Labor, denies that he means to resign his position at the Minneapolis Convention, which is to meet in October. If he should be led to do so, it is only fair to say that the organization will lose not only an abie executive and and administrative head, but also a man whose conservative tendencies and evident desire to restrain the ardor of the rasher members have given him a high place in the confidence of the Knights. He has made some serious mistakes, but his general policy has conduced to the good of the order, and if he has committed himself to the defense of some acts that were not really defensible, the enormous pressure brought to bear upon him by a huge and not always harmonious body of men less reflective than himself, must be fairly taken into account. The rapidity with which the order of the Knights of Labor has grown to vast proportions h...
