Tiie new capitol building in Texas

At Old Point, Va., when the news
of the nomination of Gen. Lee was
announced, Mrs. Wise congratulated
Mrs. Lee, and said that if her husband
was beaten in the race she would be
glad that it was by his gallant comradein-arms.
We think it time that the howl about
the poverty of the Grant family should
cease. From the sale of his book and !
other sources the General's family will j
receive about one million dollars. The j
family ought by practising :i little j
economy to be able to live in compara-!
tive comfort on this sum.

Mr. Beckford Mackey, American
Consul to Rio Grand do Sal, has recently
returned to Washington and
gives an interesting account of a colony
of ex-Confederates who left their

citizens, and are getting on
very comfortable in their new homes,
although they still retain their American
character and sympathies.
Since the contest for the Charleston
collectorship has beeu settled, it leaks
out that it was through the influence
of Senator Hampton that Mr. Jervey
secured the appointment. The Senator
was always a welcome guest at the
"White House during President Ar
thur's administration, and now it
seems that he is even more popular
with Presideut Cleveland, and is
favored more than his brother Senators
when visiting the President's mansion.
John Wise makes this calculation:
"I am not elated, bat I firmly believe
that I will be elected. There are 128,000
negro voters aud 210,000 white
voters in Virginia. I will.get 120,000
negro votes and between 50,000 and
00,000 white votes. The democrats
carried Virginia for Cleveland by only
about 4,000 votes, and they are much
more solid on .National than on Mate
issues." This is an ominoas showing
for Virginia. The negro holds the fort
there to a large extent.
The remedy for corpulence, according
to the Lancet, is*in the method of
eating and drinking. If we only ate
more deliberately, it says, we should
find half of oar accustomed quantity
of food sufficient to satisfy the eager
cravings of hunger. Let men of all
classes who lead healthy lives resolve
to eat and drink slowly. This is Dio
Lewis's idea, also. Men and women
grow inordinately fat and remain so
by imperfect mastication of food and
an improper list of water and other
liquids at meal time.

The Hon. John S. Wise opened the
gubernatorial canvass here on Monday.
He had been well advertised, and an
unusually large crowd was in attendance,
mostly Democrats, actuated by
curiosity. Mr. Wise spoke out of
doors, aud labored under the disadvantage
of an utterly unsympathetic audience.
He created no enthusiasm whatever,
and the general feeling of all
classes in regard to the speech was one
of disappointment. He spoke in the
highest terms of his Democratic opponent,
and essayed a dignified, deliberate
role, in which he was evidently
out of place and out of character. If

was here, the Democrats ought to j
sweep this district by au old-time i
majority. The speech contained no
new points, but was a rehash of the
same party clap-trap with which our
peeple are thoroughly familiar.
We clip the following from the

Iowa lias a prohibitory law which
forbids the manufacture and sale of

has increased from 770 to 910, while
the large sums formerly paid for license

keepers. Davenport loses $26,000,
and Burlington ?27,000 in this way.
The utmost that is claimed by the
friends of prohibition is that they have
closed the saloons in the small towns
and country districts and even for this
result they give not the evidence of
official returns, but vague and sweeping
estimates. They claim that 3,000
saloons have been closed, and that
2,500 are kept closed permanently.!
But the official figures of the internal!

4,327 dealers in intoxicants, so that the
reduction ?f the number in the places

be less than 2,000 if the estimates of I
the prohibitionists were correct.
Matters at the Citadel Academy j
have come to a point. Cadet Sergeant |
Scbirmer was acquitted of the charge j
of "conduct unbecoming a gentleman,"
hnf Rfi.ivil nf Visitors consider that i
he was not without fault. His appointment
as sergeant was revoked on
the ground that, under all the circumstances,
he could not discharge the
duties of the office with advantage to
the interests of the institution. Cclonel
Thomas has resigned the Superintendencv,
and his resignation has been
accepted. General Kemper, the professor
of sciences, has likewise resigned.
The vacancies will be filled by the
Board before the 1st October, when the
next term begins. Of the report that
the Super!ntendency had been, or would
be, teudered to Governor Thompson,
the- Register of Friday says:
Having; obtained authoritative information
on the subject, the Register
is enabled to announce that all the
rumors regarding Governor Thompson
and the South Carolina Citadel Academy
are without foundation. The
Governor has not been tendered the
Presidency of the institution; he would
not accept the place if it were offered
him; and he therefore has no rotion
of resuming. This information comes
from General Arthur M. Manigault,
who is just from Charleston, where he
met Governor Thompson and talked
with him on the subject.
A Suitable ^Ian.
Since the resignation of Col. Thomas
as Superintendent of the South Carolina
Military Academy, it has been rumored
that the position will be tendered to
Gov. Thompson. The Columbia Henister
seems to speak authoritatively
that the Governor would not accept it
upon any terms. While tlie .Board or
Visitors are looking around for a suitable
man for the position we feel sure
that they conld decide upon 110 mail
who would fill the position more
acceptably to the people than Col.
Coward, the present Superintendent of
Education. His long experience and
continued success as Principal of the
King's Mountain Military School peculiarly
fits him for the present vacant
position. We feel sure that his appoint
ment would insure the continued success
of the Academy and make it an
institution of which the people of the
State may well be proud.

Hon. John S. Wise Interviewed?Comments
on Democratic Nomination.
The Hon. John S. Wise, the Republican
nemincc for Governor of Virginia,
has been in Atlanta, Ga., for
several days on professional business.
A correspondent of the New York
Times inteaviewed Mr. Wise at the
Kimball House Thursday, and telegraphs
ATr. Wisr? wris fhnn/1 spntivl hv an
open window in his suite of rooms iu
the second story of the hotel, enjoying
the luxury of an Atlanta breeze. Mr.
Wise said: "I want to be elected. To
tell you the truth, it is the only office
I ever really did want. I ran for Congress
once and was beaten. I ran again
and was elected. I didn't care a fig
about the result in either race?com"
paralively speaking, I mean. But I
am in this fight with my whole soul,
and I mean to win if I can."
"Are you running as a Readjustee
backed by Republicans?"
"_\o, sn , x am me nominee 01 tne
Republicans and of uoboby else. "We
will have a square fight between Democrats
and Republicans this time."
"What is the issue in the campaign?"
"We are going to make it hot for
the Democrats on several lines., They
have got us all in trouble ever oar
State debt a$ain. The Readjuster
party rose up "and gained control of
Virginia because it represented the
popular idea on the debt question.
We enacted such laws as would have
settled the question fairly and finally,
and would have saved the people Irom
the unjust burdens which the Funders
were trying to impose on them. All
was moving along beautifully when in
caine a Democratic Legislative and
forced ou us a lot of statute? to cooperate
with those we had Jlready
passed. They had come over to oar
platform 011 the debt question, and
were trying to rob us of the gtory of
its successful solution. They have
made aprelty mess of it. It was on
the legislation of this Democratic Legislature
that the Supreme Court of the
United States msde its recent decision
declaring the coupons of our bonds
receivable for taxes."
"How will the succcs of your party
affect this question after this decision
of the Supreme Court?"
"We will simply repeal this latter
legislation and let Readjuster legislation
stand. I think that alone will
settle the debt question to the saiisfctction
of the people, and in a way that,
will stand the test of the Courts."
"What o'her issues will you raise?"
"The partisanship and corruption of
the Democratic Legislature. They
turned out seventeen members without
the shadow of law or justice in order to
obtain a two-thirds majority and render
the Governor powerless. They
seated one man who was not even a
contestant. They passed a bill designed
for the perpetration of the bolpest
election frauds. They robbed the
Governor of every prerogative he had
relative to elections, and saddled on
us the worst returning board ever
trumped up in this country. They
didn't get it quite ready for the Presidential
election, but it got in its work
in some barefaced frauds in our local
elections last spring. We will find
enough to make the Democrats answer
"Are the Democrats in Virginia
"They are worse divided now than
I ever knew them to be. There are
jealousies among their leaders and
iacuons among meir masses.
"Ro.v do tiiev like the natioual administration?"
''President Cleveland has made sad
havoc among them. At first they
abused him for not making appointments,
and now they abuse him for
those he has made. He has struck
some bad material in Virginia, and'ihe
real active element in his party there
is sadly disaffected. I don't know a
man amoug all the Presidential appointments
in Virginia who represents
the best and most valuable element in
the Democratic party of the State. The
people are sick of this business."
"Are the Readjusters and Republicans
welded into one party?"
"Thov <ti'p Wo will fhp V?nlk
of old Readjusters, and the Republicans
are solidly with us."
"What about the negroes?"
"They never were as solidly .Republican
as"they are now. There are not
200 Democrats among- the 128,000
negro voters in Virginia, and they
can't buy and bulldoze more than
5,000 of them."
"Do you think you will be elected?"
"I do : I am not elated, but I firmlv
believe that I will be elected. There
are 128.000 negro voters and 210,000
white voters in Virginia. I will get
120.000 negro votes and between 50,000
and 60,000 white votes. The Democrats
carried Virginia for Cleveland by
only about 4,000 votes, and they are
inuph more solid on national" than
"It is stated that you intend to make
a thorough canvass "of the State."
"I am going all over it. Next Monday
I will make my first speech at
Newbern, and from that time till the
day of election I will be at work. I
am going into every county in the
J .11 i.1 !l _ n

nominee go along with me, but
1 doubt if there is another man in
Virginia who can stand the programme
1 have laid out. I am going to speak
every day, and twice a day one week
in August. When I beat Parson
Masseylor Congress at large, I traveled
7,200 miles and made seventy-two
speeches in one hundred days. That
was pretty good work."
Mr. Wise was shown the telegram
announcing the nomination of General
Fitzhugh Lee, and he said: "That is
just what I wanted. It is the weakest
nomination the Democrats could have
made, and I am now more confident of
my election than ever before."

"lie is a very nice gentleman and
has many friends, but if his name had
been Fitzhugh Smith he would never
have been heard of as candidate for

uncle. He bears the same relation to
Robert E. Lee that Napoleon III. bore
to Napoleon Bonaparte. General Lee
will go into the campaign with a dash
and a whoop, in regular cavalry style.
He will find that the iufantry are in a

"He has very little. The only
prominent feature in what you might
call his political record is a letter
which he wrote in 1877, taking the
extremest possible view of the State

of the debt in full, and a ljttle
more too. That letter won't go down
in Virginia, auu me uenerai win nave
a hard time explaining it." Looking
again at the telegram and smiling, Mr.
Wise said; "That suits me exactly."

A Threat by Miss Hill to Kill One of SharonV
Sax Francisco, August 4.?The
celebrated divorce case of Hill vs.
Sharon, which is now going on under
the reversed form of Sharon vs. Hill
in the United States Circuit Court to
have the alleged marriage contract declared
void, was yesterday afternoon
productive of an exciting incident
which for a moment looked as though
it would result in a tragedy. Testimony
in the case was being taken before
the master in chancery, when a i
number of photographs of various
documents in possession of Miss Hill 1
were exniDiiea. uuuge avails ana ex-1
Senator Stewart, of counsel for Sharon
took exception to certain defects in the
photographs and characterized them as
unreliable. Miss Hill became greatly
excited at their comments, and thrusting
her hand into a satchel drew out a
revolver, which she pointed at exSenator
Stewart, remarking that if he
continued his strictures she would
make him pay dearly for them. A
general commotion followed. Master
in Chancery Houghton advanced toward
Miss Hill and urgently requested
her to remain calm. He finally succeeded
in obtaining possession ot the
revolver and adjourned the hearing
until to-day. Before he did so Miss
Hill is stated to have remarked: ;'I
am bound to^kill Stewart before this
trial is over,*ard 1 don't know but that
I had better do it now." Application
was made immediately to Judge Sawyer
for a warrant for her arrest.
?Senator Augustus Vera, the great
Hegcllian philosopher in the University
of Naples, died a few days ago. He
died reconciled to the Catholic Church,
and received, after a vi*it from Cardinal
Sanfelice, the last rites of the
Church. The visit from Cardinal
Sanfelice, who had been sent for by
the sick Senator, brought him back
again to Christian sense, lie welcomed
the Cardinal and desired him id
seud a priest in order to be reconciled
with the Church. His reconciliation
and retraction of errors were made
before witnesses, and the dying philosopher
made his confession, received
the holy eucharist and answered even
at the fast moment .ill the prayers of
?Bishop Turner, a prominent colored
Georgian, urges the young men of
his race to seek homes in the Government
lands of the West instead of
clinging to tho Eastern cities and engaging
in occupations too often servile.
Savs the Bishop: "You might
take the brightest young man in Georgia
and let him come out of Harvard
or Yale with a diploma as large as a
bed-sheet, but after he lias blacked
boots for three months at a hotel his
manhood is gone for life."
