POLITICAL POINTS. Lieutenant Marfefcam as a First-Class Prevaricator. Jim Meredith's Friends Slowly Catching on to Things. Judge Carpenter's High Estimate of the Democratic Party's Integrity. Some Cored Gemmen Who Have an Eye on Mr. F. Edward Gray of Alham bra, You Bet I First Lieutenant Markham made the worst mistake of his campaign the other day when he boldly and fiat-foot edly denied writing the Chino-Irish letter. He wrote the letter, and no denial will set that fact aside in the minds of impartial men. Its existence has been so well understood here that the leading Republican paper of the section, the Times, conceded the facts the day after the letter appeared. No person of intelligence who has followed the matter up and who cares a cent for his reputation for veracity will do any thing else. The letter was not pub lished weeks ago because tho Demo cratic state central committee desired to get the original, which was known -to exist. The Express at first blush denied the genui...

GREAT MEN'S ILLUSIONS. DEAN BWIFT SAID ALL NJEN ARE MAD IN SOME DEGREE. J llMwim Which Go to Prove the Truth jof His Saying;— Poets, Philosophers, ■oMlera and Reformers Who Saw Bpoata and Were Influenced by Them. It baa been said or sung that all men are more or less insane, differing only in degree. Certainly those who are consid ered sane—in which category the gentle leader is included—are liable to halluci nations, and it depends upon the extent to which we give way before, and believe fa, the illusions of the brain, whether we walk abroad with out follies or are placed m a padded room. Byron often received visits from a rter, but he knew it to be a creation of imagination. Pope saw an arm ap parently come through the wall, and made inquiries after its owner. Goethe ■sates that he one day saw the exact counterpart of himself coming toward him. Ben Jonson spent the watches of the night an interested spectator of a crowd of Tartars, Turks and Roman Catholics, who rose up and fought...

A RECORD SMASHED. The Time for Three-Year- Olds Reduced Yesterday. Splendid Running in the Two- Mile Sweepstakes. Marigold Wins Easily in Unexampled Tim*. Honors Easy Between Favorites and Outsiders—The Closing Day One of Fine Sport Largely Attended. I The annual fair of the Sixth District Agricultural association was brought to a close yesterday afternoon, and proved to be one of the most successful of its kind ever held in this city in every way. There was another large crowd at the Agricultural park, and an excellent card had been provided for the amusement of the visitors, but it suffered somewhat in comparison with the sensational one of the preceding day. The first event on the programme was a seven-eighths-mile dash for 2- year-olds, for which Dave Bridges' Peri and Chase's Mystery were the only con testants. The former was constituted favorite at 10 to 8, and justified the con fidence reposed in her by winning by a length and a half in the fast time of a a minute and.a half....

FINANCE AND TRADE. Financial. KXCHANOE REVIEW. New York, October 18.—Trading in the street and in the stock market clearly demon strated the independence oj the manipulators of the street from any and all circumstances which ought legitimately to have a bearing upon the real values of securities. Notwith standing n loss in bank reserves of over $3,000, --000, and the complete wiping out of the sur plus, the market today was strong from start to finish, closing with material gains in many stocks. The advances were very uniform in active stocks, but there was a pronounced movement in the Citizens' Gas of Brooklyn, which, after retiring to 98, rose to 100%, clos ing at a gain of 2 per cent, for the day. Final changes, with the exception noted, were frac tions only, but almost invariably in the direc tion of higher prices. Governments—Dull, but firm. MONEY QUOTATIONS.

MARKHAM'S LETTERS. CHOICE EXCERPTS FROM THE COL ONEL'S BUSINESS EPISTLES. Language so Foul a Paper That Printed It Would Be Liable For Obscenity. Editors Herald :—"The devil," says the proverb, "is never as black as he's painted," yet I take it, if his Satanic \raajesty should give us a pen portrait of himself, over hia own autograph (heaven save the mark!)—we would hardly criti cise the old gentleman's grossness of execution. Now some may object to my applying this conclusion to the "Honorable" H. «H. Markham. Markham's party lead ers, however —those smooth gentlemen of the political bucket and sponges— have been parading him as such a per fect model of the "honorable Christian gentleman" (honest, honest Iago!), and he and they have so assiduously and indignantly denied the "foul imputa tions" of the "blackmailing Democrats," that I leel constrained to point out more fully for the sake of emphasis, some of the peculiar' phases of the Ore Grande correspondence which is now being ven...

THE BUSKINED STAGE Points on Plays and Players From Many Places. Mme. Patti's New Theater at Craig-y-Nos in Wales. Some Notes on New Plays and Operas Gathered form Many Sources. Los Angeles an Excellent Play Town, as Georgia Parker Last Week and Carle ton This Will Prove. The London News says: "Mme. Tatti's bijou theatre and opera house at Craig-y-Nos, Breconshire, her Welsh home, is at the north end of the castle, and adjoins the French billiard room and clock tower. The front faces south and is in the courtyard. It has an ornamental facade in the Italian style, which distinctly marks the purpose of the building. On the pediment* stand out in bold relief, in gold letters, the words "Patti Theatre." As the theatre is essentially a private one and is for the convenience of the visitors at the castle, though charitable performances, to which the public may be admitted, may be given from time to time, the principal entrance will be from the house by means of a wide corridor from the Fr...

He Refuses to Float and Is Looked OP- A few days ago Charles L. Post was sentenced to forty days' imprisonment for petty larceny. Post is a hopeless monomaniac when intoxicated. Noth ing below a hot stove would stave off his kleptomaniac tendencies. From one party he stole blacking-brushes, from another a chair. When a man gets that low down in stealing he should ■keep sober and study a taste for bank robbing or fotgery, which is much imore profitable as well as less dan gerous.
