JOHN SAUTER,

When the Sultan goes to Ispahan.

When the Sultan Shfth-Zamnn

Goes to the city Ispahan,

Even before he gets so far

As the place whore the clustered palm-trees are,

At the last of the thirty palace gates,

The Pet of the Harem, Rose-in-Uloom,

Orders a feast In his favorite room,—

Glittering squares of colored Ice,

Swootened with syrups, tinctured with spice;

Creams, and cordials, and sugared dates;

Syrian apples, Othmonee quinces,

Limes, and citrons, and apricots;

And wlncB that are known to Eastern princes.

And Nubian slaves, with smoking pots

Of spiced meats, and costliest fish,

And all that the curious palate could wish.

Pass In and out of the ced&rn doors.

Scattered over mosaic floors

Are anemones, myrtles, and violets;

And a musical fountain throws its Jets

Of an hundred colors into the air.

The dark sultana loosens her hair,

And stains with the henna plant the tips

Of her pearly nails, and bites her lips

Till they bloom again; hut alas, that rose

Not for the Saltan buds and blows 1

Not for the Sultan Shah.Zaman

When he goes to the city Ispahan.

Then at a wave of her sunny liand,

The dancing girls of Samarcand

Float in like mists from Fairy-land 1

And to the low voluptuous swoons

Of music, rise and fall the moons

Of their full brown bosoms. Orient blood

Ituns In their veins, shines In their eyes;

And there In this Eastern paradise,

Pilled with the fumes of sandal-wood,

And Khoten musk, and aloes, and myrrh,

Sits Rosc-ln-Bloom on a silk divan,

Sipping the wines of Astrackhan;

And her Arab lover sits with her.

That's when the Sultan Shah-Zamau

Goes to the city Ispahan.

Now, when I sqe an extra light

Flaming, flickering on the night,

From my neighbor's casement opposite,

I know as well as I know to pray,

I know as well as a tongue can say,

That the Innocent Sultan Shah-Zaman

Has gone to the city Ispahan.

THE BREWSTER STANDARD, FRIDAY EVENING, AUGUST 5,1887.

HKEWSTER. AUGUST 5, 1887.

Republican State Convention.

The Itepnltlicnn doctors of Hie Stale of New-

York nnrt nil others wlio wish to unite with them

In maintaining the accented principles of the Ke-

pnlillcnn parly, ns declared In the platform of, its

^lnst National Convention, nve horclty requested to

send delegates to a State Convention, to IHS hold

at Stnfltoga Springs on Wednesday, September

14,1887, at 12 o'clock noon, for the purpose of

nominating candidates for State ofllccs, to ho sup­

ported at the ensuing election. Each Assembly

District in the State will bo entitled to represent­

ation In accordance with the rule established for

the last convention.

CHEBTKII S. COI.K, Chairman.

Putnam counijUs entitled to three delegates.

Meeting of fhe State Committee.

The Republican Slate Committee met

at Saratoga on Tuesday, and settled on

Wednesday, September 14, as the day

lor holding the State convention and

Saratoga as the place.

A call for the convention was drawn

up by General llusted, General Sharpe

and Mr. Tabor, and read to the committee.

It calls for a convention of 098 delegates,

as in 1885. The committee approved

the call and adjourned to meet on the

evening of September 13, before the

convention meets.

The rallying point seems to bo around

Senator Hiscock, and in all his talk lie

palpably strove to enlist those present,

Morton and Miller men, in a hearty sup­

port for the Republican State ticket this

fall. The task was not altogether a

pleasant one. Factional quarrels have

harmed the Republican party greatly in

the past three years, and many men who

took part in them are yet hot-blooded,

lie had to exercise all his diplomacy on

some of these men to induce them to give

up* all thoughts of vengeance. He was

gratifyingly successful, however, in these

efforts. His visitors were unanimously

ot the opinion that the Republican Stale

ticket would be supported next fall with

a heartiness and unity not before wit­

nessed in several years.

A few weeks ago we published a state­

ment regarding the increase of salaries

of supervisors, and copied from one of

the dailies. But the thing was mislead­

ing. The increase applies only to the

county of Richmond. The increase was

obtained by a peculiar and extraordinary

phraseology of the law, thus:

In all counties of the Slate, except in

the county of Rockland, where there are

less than six supervisors, the compensa­

tion of each supervisor shall bo five hun­

dred dollars per annum.

Richmond is the only county in the

State that has less than six supervisors,

and Putnam and Rockland have six each,

and are the only ones having that num­

ber. And even the mention of Rockland

raises a question whether that is properly

included. But there is something queer

about the matter. It certainly was just

as easy to say that "the supervisors of

Richmond county shall have each a salary

of five hundred dollars a year " as to in­

dulge in so much circumlocution and still

leave the act blind. An explanation is

now in order.

Political Notes.

Blaino has much more strength among

Massachusetts Republicans ihUn ho had before

tho campaign of 1884. The tendency of the parly

has been steadily toward him.—[Boston Herald.

The claim agents are sending out

blanks for G. A. ft. posts and others to All In.nsk.

lng Congress to pass more dependent pension

bills. Hie claim agents feci a livelier Interest In

this subject than the veteran soldiers.—[Hartford

Times.

The most significant thing in tho Ohio

declaration [Democratic} was its total omission,

of any reference to civil service reform. And yet

this has been the main feature of Mr. Cleveland's

administration, the one thing that distinguishes

It frem all previous Administrations.—[Now York

Sun.

A Boston paper notes the fact that the

word "Mugwump" occurred In the Atlantic

Monthly for June, 1807. The St. Louis Globe-

Democrat thinks that "the thing Itself, however,

did not come to pass until 1884; and It might have

been delayed many years longer without disad­

vantage to the country." "Hut wo wouldn't have

had so much fun," adds the New York Sun.

The President could have arrested the

change In the public service'at an equilibrium

without any more alienation of his party, and

with the general support of the people of tho

country. But we suppose he has thought it ex­

pedient to jicld to party pressure to prevent what

he has believed would be his isolation and his

consequent impotence.—[Harper's Weekly.

In qualifications for tho Executive of­

fice of this nation Mr. Hill has as ox eel lent claims

88 Mr. Cleveland. If undisguised devotion to his

party be a recommcnatlon, then Mr. Hill has su­

perior claims to consideration in the next Dem­

ocratic convention, and the Cleveland forces had

bolter make up their minds to cense talking about

Mr. Cleveland in the light of a sacrifice to Mr.

Hill's ambition.—[Kansas City Journal.

The Democrats will be greatly disap­

pointed If the Ohio Republican convention-docs

not develop a bitter conteBt over the request of

Senator Sherman for an "indorsement" of ids

candidacy for the Prcbldency. But appearances

do not Indicate any row. The Blaine delegates

seemed to care little what Is done a year in ad­

vance of the time of electing delegates to tho Na­

tional convention, and they are disposed to disap­

point the Democrats. Tho important thing this

year is to elect the Governor and State oillccrfl,

and on that all Republicans are are agreed.—[N.

Y. Tribune.

A Greenback journal has tho news that

a "significant movement is being Inaugurated

that, If carried out, will elect a majority of tho

List Congress mid tho rresldent and Vice Presi­

dent." The "movement" consists of a project to

unite all the so-called "reform" organizations In

one party, and defeat the Republicans and Dem-

ocrate. There nrc twenty-six of these factions or

juntas mentioned by name, the Knights of Labor,

tho Anti-Poverty Society, tho Woman's Christian

Temperance Union, nnd tho Woman Suffrage As­

sociation being conspicuous. The scheme is ccr-

alnly picturesque.—St. Louis Globo-Domocrnt.

The State Senators who have been men­

tioned among the candidates for the various State

offices are withdrawing from the canvass. Re­

ports from Oswego say that Senator Sloan docs

not want the nomination for Comptroller, but will

return to the Senate. Senator Fas6elt is said .to

prefer the Senate to any Stale office Uds fall. Sen­

ator Vcdder would rather return to tho Senate

than be Comptroller, and If he turns up a candi­

date at the Republican convention It will be be­

cause he doubts whether his district will return

ldm. President pro tern Pitts thinks 11 Is a big­

ger thing to lead tiie Republicans In the Senate

than to be Attorney-General. Senator Low Is

waiting till next year, when he wants to run for

Governor,—[New York Sun.

The Ohio Nominations.

At tho recent convention of the Ohio

Republicans General J. B. Forakcr was

renominated for Governor. His admin­

istration, in a general sense, has proved

ncccptablo to all parties, and there is no

doubt of his re-election.

A few wooks ago Senator Sherman did

not think that it would be tho best thidg

for the State convention to touch the

Presidential question, but the public talk

in the Democratic papers of the State

about his weakness in Ohio aroused him

and he resolved to have an indorsement

this year, or withdraw at once and for­

ever from tho Presidential roll. The

Blaine following in the State was aroused

by this announcement and for a time

there threatened to be a contest in the

the convention, but all practical differ­

ences were adjusted. Major McKinley

and the other Blaine men who were mem­

bers of the committee on resolutions

agreed to the words of indorsement

which are incorporated in the platform.

When the resolution was read it was

greeted with cheers and when-it was put

to vote it passed without a dissenting

voice.

Dr. Orlando E. Bradford, of New York

city, a reputable physician, was recently

arrested on complaint of having practiced

dentistry. Dr. Bradford claimed that he

was a graduated physician and was reg­

istered in tho county clerk's office and in

the Board of Health, and that he has a

right to practice dentistry. Counsellor

Max Bayersdorsor, who appeared for the

defendant, said that Judge Nelson, of

Poughkeepsie has already given ajwrilten

opinion that a physician is a dentist, and

that a dentist should always be a physi­

cian. Dentist White's lawyers cited the

laws of 18G9, which make it unlawful to

practice dentistry without a certificate

from the State Dental Society, or some

dental or medical college recognized by

the society. Judge Guernsey, for Dr.

Bradford, said that he graduated from

tho Electric Medical College of New

York city and was registered according

to law. Justice Gorman said that a

physician or surgeon might, in his judg­

ment, practice dentistry while a dentist

might.not practice medicine. "I would

not dare," he said, "to deprive the

Doctor of one moment of his liberty."

, ^»

The Comptroller of the Currency has

called upon the national banks for a

report of their condition at the close of

business August 1. No report was ever

called for in the month of August until

last year, when August 27 was the date

fixed upon, nor since 18(58 has any date

in July later than the 1st been selected.

The information to be embodied in the

report just called for is expected to be

particularly valuable, as showing how

the banks are prepared to meet the

approaching demands for funds to move

the crops. All banks that iail to send in

reports under the last call within the

time specified by law were fined and the

fines have been collected and paid into

the Treasury. Even political pressure

was brought to bear in several cases to

obtain a remission of the penalties, but

the Comptroller would not consent to any

such arrangement. He has frequently

said he was determined to enforce this

statute, and has so informed the banks.

The Legislature of 1885 granted a

charter to the East River Tunnel Company,

and articles ot incorporation were filed

with the Secretary of State. A survey

shows that for the entire distance under

the water bed at Blackwell's Island there

is solid rock, with few fissures and no

soft bottom or gravel. The construction

of a tunnel will consequently be free

from tho engineering difficulties which

impede the progress of the one partly

driven under the Hudson. A reorgan­

ization of the company has taken place,

which puts it in shape to go ahead with

the work. W. E. Piatt Stratto, one of

the projectors, and engineers of the

tunnel says: "The East River tunnel

will be completed before the Blackwell's

Island bridge is begun. It will be built

in eighteen months and will not cost one-

fifth the amount necessary to erect a

bridge. The line of the tunnel will be

under Blackwell's Island diagonally, and

work can be carried on from ten different

points.

John Taylor, president of the Mormon

Church, was buried at Salt Lake City on

Friday. The speakers dwelt mainly on

the certainty that Mormonism is God's

work and bound to prevail and fill the

earth in spite of the opposition of man.

There was no apparent feeling in their

remarks. A son of Taylor tried to tell

the audience how his father had been

deceived in the Constitutional Conven­

tion, that he did not know of the adoption

of the anti-polygamy resolution, but the

management of the programme declined

to be interrupted, and the young mau

was forced to quit. Joseph Smith Jr.,

wilt go to Salt Lake City and present his

claims to the presidency of the Mormon

Church. He is opposed to polygamy,

and probably will uot meet with success.

The chairman of the Hemoeratie State

Committee has called a meeting of that

body at Saratoga far Tuesday, August

iio, at Yi o'clock noon.

In reference to the dispatches from

St. Louis to the effect that the Missouri

Pacific Railroad Company had been

robbed or cheated out of $1,000,000 in

its purchase of lies, President Jay Could

said that the reports were exaggerations.

He said that the company would have

Railroad Hatters.

George Ullman, station agent at Scars-

dale, has been in the employ of tho

Harlem Railroad Company thirty-eight

years.

The Tribune states that the New York

& Northern Railroad Company's proper­

ty will be sold under foreclosure next

month in accordance with the plan of

reorganization.

George E. Daggett, roadmaster of the

New York & New England road, has re­

signed to accept a similar position at

Bridgeport with the New York, New

Haven & Hartford railroad.

A. Grant Childs, of of Kington, is en­

gaged in surveying a route for a new

railroad to connect tho Port J ervis, Monti-

cello & New York railroad with an ex­

tension that is to run to the Pougkcepsie

bridge.

The much talked of railroad from Hud­

son to Valatie has at last got to be a sure

thing. Parties interested have been en­

gaged the past week in securing the right

of way and contractors for the bridge and

other portions of the route have been

examining the grounds.—Millcrton Tele­

gram.

Engine 474 took coal and water in the

Croton yards of the Hudson River road at

10 o'clock Friday mornirg. Engineer

Patrick Boylan started her northward to

pass from the siding to the main track.

The switch was closed, and tho engine

rau to the end of tho side track and

plunged into Croton Pond. Boylan

jumped before the engine went into the

water, but Fireman Acker was caught

between the engine and tender and hurt

internally.

Tho Mt. Vernon & East Chester rail­

road was put up again for sale Tuesday

at White Plains by Referee William

Popham Plait in pursuance of a judgment

of foreclosure and sale obtained by

Adoph L. Sanger as trustee of the com­

pany. The road was sold last week by

Piatt for $40,000, but there was a misun­

derstanding as to the terms of the sale.

Leopold Wertheimer, of New York city,

bought the road Tuesday for $37,000.

Mr. Wertheimer will endeavor to make

it a paying property.

Speaker James W. llusted, of New

York, was on Monday elected president

of the Hartford & Connecticut Western

Railroad to succeed W. L. Gilbert.

George S. Frink, of Millerton, resigned

from tho board of directors, and Mr.

Husted was elected to fill his place. The

Pennsylvania & New England Construc­

tion Company, while represented in the

management by the president and two

directors, has not yet obtained possession

of the road, as tho requisite amount of

money has not yet been paid over.

Papers were filed Friday incorporating

the Poughkeepsie, Hartford & New En­

gland Railroad Company. This is the

outcome of protracted and unsuccessful

negotiations for the sale of the New York

& Massachusetts Railway to the Philadel­

While the 4:36 train from New York

on the Northern road was crossing the

trestle near Craft's Saturday .afternoon,

and just after the heavy wind storm had

passed over, Engineer Harris saw a tele­

graph pole lying across tho track. He

reversed his engine but struck the pole,

throwing it from the track. A little fur­

ther on a similar obstruction was met

with and this was also cleared away. The

train rolled on until near Reed's crossing,

when the engineer saw a man on the track,

gesticulating to attract his attention. The

train was stopped aud it was found that

an ugly little washout might have caused

serious trouble if the man had not seen it

it in time. Tho track was braced up and

tho train passed over in safety.

During tho summer, and especially

during the recent damp weather, the

backs of the seats in the Methodist

church of this village, have been very

sticky, in fact, so much so that it seemed

as if a bond of unity existed between the

hearers and the pews. It was ludicrous

at times at the close of service to see

women trying to dissever their connection

with the church, which was only accom­

plished with injury to their gowns and

consequent loss of temper. It seems as

though this condition might be rectified.

But Brewster is not alone in this matter.

Tlie same trouble occurred at Fishkill,

but a competent painter was called on

and the annoyance has been rectified.

The example might be followed here.

On Wednesday morning John Autch,

fireman on. Conductor Carroll's train on

the Northern road, met with an accident

which might easily have been worse. He

was trying to drop the ash-pan, but the

pin which held it in place wouldn't movo;

thereupon he took a bar and, passing it

through the wheel, tried to pry it up.

Just then the engineer, not knowiug that

Autch was engaged at this work, started

up, and the movement threw the bar up,

striking Autch under the chin, inflicting

a severe cut. He came to the village, had

his wound dressed and returned home on

his train. Engineer Harris 1 fireman met

with a similar mishap about a year ago,

at Amawalk, which resulted in the bar

getting twisted into such a shape that it

took three-quarters of an hour to extri­

cate it.

The Pawling Fair.

The premium list of the first annual

fair and cattle show of the Harlem Val­

ley Agricultural Association is printed

and ready for distribution. The fair will

bo held at Lakeside Park, Pawling,

August 80, 31, and September I.

The rules are liberal and provide that

competition be open to all. *

The payment of one dollar constitutes

any person a member of tho Society, and

entitles such persons to a pass during the

fair, and to enter articles or animals for

premiums; also to enter free of charge

(for exhibition only) articles contributed

by there friends.

Entries of all animals or articles can be

made by addressing tho secretary prior

to August 20, and will bo strictly confi­

dential.

Entries of all stock or articles must be

made by 2 p. m. Tuesday, and must be

on the grounds the first day.

The premiums ottered compare favor­

ably with tho amounts offered by kindred

associations, and a lively competition will

probably result therefrom.

There will be trotting each day, as

follows:

Tuesday—Purse for 3 minute class,

$150; for 2:29 class, $250.

Wednesday—Purse for 2:87 class,

$200; for 2:33 class, $200.

Thursday—Purse for 2:80 (pacers),

$200: for 2:45 class, $150; for 2:25

class, $250.

The new exhibition hall is rapidly Hear­

ing completion. Beyond all doubt the

exhibition will prove a successful and

profitable one.

A Village Directory.

We are pleased to state that a reliable

Directory Company is preparing a village

directory which will not be simply a busi­

ness directory, as has been the works pre­

viously published, but will be a general

directory and will contain the names, oc­

cupations aud l'esidences of the adult pop­

ulation. The work will also embrace

a general directory of all villages along

the line of tho Harlem railroad from New

York to Chatham*

Our business and professional men who

wish to procure a valuable yet cheap

advertisement should see that their card

is well displayed iu this work. A can­

vass will be made from door to door

and orders taken for tho work, and if

the canvassers have not as yet called on

you be sure and take advantage of a

prominent position in the advertising

department of tho work.

The Rev. Mr. Granger having returned

from his vacation services will be held in

the Baptist church next Sunday. A

change in the hour of the morning serv­

ice has been made; instead of beginning

at 10:30 it will now commence at 11

o'clock. Sabbath school will be at the

close of the morning service. As the

superintendent desires to bring up the

question of the annual picnic, a full at­

tendance is requested.

One of the recent laws of the State

provides that trustees and boards of

education shall, at the time of employing

any teacher, deliver to such person a

memorandum in writing, specifying the

length oi the term of employment, the

amount of compensation and the times

when such compensation is to be paid;

and that the compensation of any teacher

in any public school of the Slate shall be

deemed to be due and payable at least as

often as at die end of each calendar

month of the term of employment.

James S. Burdett, the popular hum­

orist, is booked for the Tovvu Hall August

19, iu company with the Meigs Sisters,

vocal quartette. He is too well remem­

bered here by the many who have enjoyed

his roeitatious to require any extended

notice in these columns. Ko one iu New

York has so mauy engagements in the

best social circles as Mr. Burdett. His

humor is always wholesome aud alto­

gether irresistible. His programme here

will be entirely new aud the young ladies

will not gk« any °f toe numbers they

.sung last summer. Seats are now ou

sale at the post-office, one price having

been fixed for ihe entire house, 50 cents.,

including a reserved seat. Secure seats

early.

Tho Booth & Collier Uncle Tom's Cab­

in Company came on Tuesday, according

to announcement, put up their canvas,

had their grand street parade, and did not

show after all. It had been storming at

intervals throughout the day, and at tea

time a drizzle set in for two hours. At 8

o'clock it had expanded to a good-sized

thunder storm and the rain came down vig­

orously. There were not above sixty per­

sons inside, but the canvas was old and

water-soaked aud the top merely served

as a strainer. During the blow the tent

swayed so much that it was feared it

would go over aud a small-sized panic

ensued; but the band came to the rescue

aud tooted courage into the hearts of the

affrighted and the peril was averted. Pur­

chasers of tickets received their money

back and reached home in safety, albeit

change of raiment became an immediate

necessity. _____
