LAHCABTEB. AUGUST SO. 18.
1882 iml 18S4.
After the nomination of Rebert E. Pat Pat
t'taen for governor in 1682 by the Demo Deme
crate, the Philadelphia IiccerO assailed him
with all its force of coarse . itineratien
and bitter Jnuende. The Democrats
were accused of having cast te the winds
every chance of success by nominating a
weak candidate, who had no chance of
winning, and who if elected would be the
mere " factotum " of interests which the
Recerd hated. Its intensity of feeling led
it into ether extremes; and during the
campaign it did some very discreditable
things te defeat Pattison and the entire
Democratic state ticket.
But the sequel proved the Iticer d te be
utterly mistaken, l.t baa started upon a
like course toward Mr. Ulack ; and it will
encounter the same fate. In many re
spect Mr. Black is the fittest man in
Pennsylvania te be the Recerd's candidate
for governor; and he is the very embodi
ment of many of the salutary principles
which the Recerd has helped te educate
the people te believe in. It cannot undo
its own work. Black will be elected as
The queen's speech is read at the open
ing of Parliament by the Lord Chancellor,
who stands by the throne with one feet en
the lower step ; is w rittcn by the ministers
without reference te the queeu's opinion or
wishes, and in its delivery yesterday, was
net even honored by the queen's presence.
It may theiefore be regarded as an expres
sion of the intentions and an eutline of the
policy of the party In power. In this case
the eutline w.is extremely faint, because
the many diOIcultics th.il beset the party
in power, make ite future course a matter
of mystery te its leaders.
The only point in the speech from the
throne was en the evident necessity of
further financial legislation, anil in leply
te this Mr. Gladstone referred te Ireland
us the most important question and inti
mated that until that question was settled
there would be small prospect of disposing
of ether necessary legislation.
Lord Randelph Churchill's rambling re
ply was full of suggestions of a rather con
tradictory character, and it is doubtful
whether the ignoble lord himself knows
or cares te knew what it means. The gov
ernment is represented as opposed te coer
cion, but will strive te present crime from
becoming chronic in Belfast, as it is said
te be in ether parts of Ireland, and will
use all its military power for the restora
tion of order in Kerry. Thenctef'Sl will be
regarded as a final settlement of the land
question for the present, and a rejal com
mission will Inquire into the exist
ing land syitem while the govern
ment will try te secure mere com
plete information of Irish industries.
He alluded te contemplated public
works in Ireland for the development of
its reseurses, but Churchill is net feel
enough te imagine that any such sugges
tions of interest in the welfare of the Irish
can de his party nny geed or satisfy the
Seven of the eight Anarchists en trial in
Chicago, for murderous bomb-throwing,
have been found guilty of murder in the
first degree, the ether, Xeebe, being sen
tenced te fifteen years' penal servitude.
It is a righteous end te a long trial.
Every possible chance was given te the de
fendants te acquit themselves, and their
causa was championed by some of the
ablest legal talent in the country, but it
was of no avail. Their crimes had found
them out, nnd they must new pay the pen
alty for their grave infraction of the laws
of the laud.
There will be, no doubt, efforts m.ide te
aecure a new trial, and the law's delay will
be Invoked In appeals and exceptions. But
in the end the scaffold will loom up as the
melancholy ending for the defendants. The
reinlt will be a stern warning te all this
class of disturbers that whlle the United
BUtes are a free country, they will net
tolerate a freedom te defy law and order.

FInerty made a spcctacle of himself by
his intemperate remarks, and the anti-Irish
press in.Engl.ind willdeubtless inake much
of his sayings te the attempted detriment
of the cause. But his reputation its a
brawler is se well established that his ac
tions aroet little consequence. On the
whole the convention has done geed weik.
It has nchiced much in solidifying the
Irish sentiment of the country and throw
ing it te Panicll, and thlsimtst be etrectUe
in securing a large incisure of gee i for Ire
land in the future.

nati editors, are talking atmutn duel. The
public could afford te leek euttils proceeding
with the same complacency with which the
old man viewed the tight betnoen hit tor ter
magant wire and the bear.
The action of the l'resbyterlan synod In
acquitting Dr. Weed row of the chargra el
heresy brought against him by brother
clergy, will meet with the approval of all
Hberal-nilnded people. The ground of the
accusation was solely Dr. Woodrew'
avowal el belief In evolution, and as he w'
able te satlsly hU own mind that that belief
does net centllct with any essential point of
Presbyterian faith, there would seem 10 iw
small ground for the charges te rest upon.
His assailant claims that there it an Irrecon
cilable centllct between the teaching of the
Prosbyterian church, and the teachings of
evolution, and that both can net be true.
Therefore belief In the latter proves dis
belief in the former. Of course this depends
en hew both these teachings are understood.
If evolution Is defined as the doctrine that
man has been de eloped from a monkey
as opposed te the dectrine of the church
that man was created Instantly irem
the dust of the earth, It would seem import,
ble te affect a reconciliation. But fortu
nately neither of these definitions are com
monly accepted, and but few who adhere te
evolution are convinced of the existence of
the missing lluk. There Is no cause for a
coutreerslal war between Christians en the
matter ei oelutlon, for it true it must pre
vail and must be reconcilable with all ether
truths and In harmony with Christianity.

Frem the lUltlinere Sun
In selecting the present Ueuteuaut gover
nor, Mr. Chauncey V. Black, as their candi
date ter govorner, the l'enusylvaula Demo
crats have made perhaps the wisest cholce
between the claims of rival leadors. Mr.
Black, as the son of the late Jeremiah &
Black, lnherlu a strong affection for Jeffer Jeffer
eon Ian principles, aud, as a young and vig
orous leader with sufficient experience of
public affairs te temper hi euergy with dis
cretion, will doubtless command the enthu
siastic support of the younger element of his
party. Mr. Black's public utterances have
given him a wide reputation for compactness
of statement, clearness et reasoning nnd
comprehensive grap of the political Issues of
the day, and under his leadership the Penu
svlvanla Democracy mav be expected te
make a spirited and determined fight. His
antagonist, Gen. Beaver, has arleut ele
ments of weakness, net the least of which is
found in the tact that he was badlv beaten
when a candldate ler the same office tour

second place en the ticket with the present
Governer rattlsen, aud was chosen lieuten

since then Irem the rivalries and Jealousies
with which the Pennsylvania democracy, as
well as Its opponents, has been afflicted, but
he is tee yeuug a man te have laid up the
store of rtsnUuents w hicb might have been
called into play by the nomination of one of
the veteran leaders, and the large vote which
he received 103 te 129 cast for Ueu. Win, A.
Wallace would seem te indicate that he will
have little if any difficulty in concentrating
his forces for the assault upon the Kepubllcau
strongholds. Mr. Black resides at Yerk. Pa..

1S;0 was chosen president of the Jeffersen
Democratic association of that place, whose
purposes were declared te be the preserva
tion or the constitution of the United State,
the autonomy or the States, home rule,
freedom et elections, resistance te revelu
tienary changes tending te consolidation or
empire, te the election of any person te the
presidency for a third time, te the presence
of troops at the polls, te the appropriation of
public money for any purpose but the sup
port of government, te commercial restric
tiens for the benefit of the lew at the cot or
the many, and te "class legislation which
destroys the natural freedom et trade and
despoils labor te build up monopoly." The
Sun, in June last, commenting en the possi
bility of Mr. Black's nominaiieu, remarked
that he "has Bhewn abundant merit of his

With the aid of about 1.M0 special corres
pondents The A'eie England ITemealcail will
this week be enabled te present a complete
forecast as te the yield of large fruits, the
harvest of which has been begun. It Is the
even or bearing year tar apples In New Eng
land, but, although there Is a large yield of
fall fruit, the reports lndicate that the crop of
winter apples will be about TO par cent, et the
usual eyon-year yield in six state. In the
best apple counties of Vermont, along Lake
Cbamplaln, net two-thirds of a full even
year crop will be secured, whlle Maine re re
jierts a decrease of-0 percent., but both these
states and New Hampshire will have a
large surplus. Connecticut has but half a
crop and Massachusetts en SO per cent, of a
crop. The falling nil in New Kuglaud,
bowever, will be pirtly made up by the great
crop in hoapplesectlensofNovaScotla. An
napolis and King counties last year ovpertcd
only 40,000 barrels, but this section will bae
a surplus or 100,000 barrels. Perhaps the
meat significant tact revealed In this Impor
tant report is that the great apple counties of
Western New Yerk premise the lightest crop
in twenty years and the worst feature Is that
the quality premises te be comparatively
peer. The great apple ceuntle of Orleans,
Menree, Niagara, Wayne and Wyoming are
reported as having rcarcely 50 percent of the
av erage yleld. In Eastern New Yerk there
is a better prospect, but the average for the
whole Btate 100 reperti U only 5J per cent.
Pennsylvania has b5 percent or a lull apple
crop and there Is a geed crop In Ohie, but
from further West the reports are discourag
ing and the Northwest and Southwest have
such a small supply as te eiler a remunera
tive market for the surplus of the Middle

It Is well for theso who plant large market

In gathering, thesprlng wagon may be driven

was frantically trying te extricate his arms
from his Jacket, and he darted off te call for

he ceased his efforts te tear off bis garment
and seized the masslve iron framework te
press himself back. Vain struggle! the
strength of a hundred men would have been
as nothing against the rower of that ponder

the ether side and bent ever him, be gazed
down at the starting eye-balls, the convulsed
face, and the white teeth from which the lips
were drawn away. Luke instantly opened
bis knife and began cutting the coarse cloth

It was a full minute bofero he could speak,

The Dangers of Dust.
A writer in the Londen Lancet says:
Darkness, damp and dust are potent agen
cies of disease. Everybody recognizes this :
but bow many fait te adept Its precepts ! If
there be sermons in stenes, surely the sum
mer dust and its dangers would prove a
fruitful subject for medical discourse, There
Is as great a difference between Londen and
country dust as there is between the corres
ponding muds. Pulverized matter would
be harmless enough if It were deprived of its
physical property or ready diffusion. The at
rneapbere Is laden and swarms with particu
late matter el highly complex nature. Its
chief peril te living beings resides in the or
ganle constituents ; largely this organ le ma
terial consists of minute forma of life In a
state of lateney, only waiting for a spoil et
heat and moisture and a favorable amount of
light, or It mav be darkness te awaken It
Inte activity. The habits of Individuals in
every class of society, including the masses,'
are net calculated te diminish, but rather te
augment the amount or organic matter In our
atmosphere. Mucuv, saliva and humor, op ep
ularly known as matter,' must be dis
charged from the mouth and nostrils te the
extent of many gallons dally, and net a little
or this comes from infective sources, while
we venture te think that the bulk or it min
gles with the dust or our streets and courts.
ir, as seem net unlikely, consumption Is
largely caused by ' germs,' then a very ready
theory mav be advesated concerning the
mode In which centaglum la canght. Who
can estimate the amount of mischief that the
shaking of mats may have caused T Hew
many young girls early In the morning en
their way te business have, se te speak, re
ceived their death blew wlille Inspiring, all
unconscious et harm, eome et the clouds of
dust that nlwajn greet thorn T Who rail
tell T The abatement of this danger and
nuisance I a dllllculty that nlmest seems In
surmouutable. Much may be dene by per
sonal habits of prevention."
