SE-VATdlt QUAY'S VICTORY.
No doubt seems to be entertained by
the friend-, of Senator Quay that he will
have complete control of the Penns) li anla
Stale c-onveutio-i which will meet licit
week. The primaries at Philadelphia
jestcrday apparently made this assurance
doubly sure, as the Senator secured up
ward of ivicnly-five delegates out of Ihe
seventy-six which will represent the
Quaker city, when not more than rive or
6ix had Iecn conceded. This is a tremen
dous blow between the e)cs for what Is
euphoniously termed the "hog combine,"
and, as the Quay supporters assert, will
result in a desertion to the Quay ranks
of many delegates who are not instructed
in all parts of the old Kc) stone State.
This result, while it looks on the sur
face like a merely personal victory for
Senator Quay and the old Republican
political machine, which has dominated
the State for more than thirty years,
with but Tew restful Intervals, means
that and something more. American tense
or fair play detests ingratitude and treach
ery, and-lf ever such feeling were shown
la Indecent form. It certaiuly has been
exhibited in the attempts of Magee, Has-'
tings, Martin, Gilkeson and the rest ot
them lo hrca,k the power of Quay as a
manipulator of political schemes. No mat
ter how the phrase "hog combine" orgi-
nated, and no matter how Indelicate it
sounds, it seems lo he appropriate.
If the "combine" had been able lo offer
to Ihe people ot the State an) thing belter
than Qua) ism or Cameronism, its forget
fulness of benefits received from "the old
man" might have been forgiven. But the
open and Indecent treachery of these indi
viduals had Tor its plain purpose nothing
more exalted than a selfish Cetermlnatio-
to "boss things" in their own iuleresls
and thrust Quay into lasting retirement.
Eicry member" of the combine was a
political child of Quay. The story of the
base ingratitude of the daughters or King
Lear becomes respectable by comparison
when one contemplates the conduct of such
men as Hastings, Gilkeson, Martin and
Warwick, and it will gratify even those
Hi lug remote from the scene or action la
hear thai Martin and Warwick were de
feated in their own divisions in Philadel
phia and that Quay will have a decisive
majority in the convention.
MIL MONROE AND JOHN BULL.
A caUe telegram which appears in the
news columns of the Times quotes the
St. James Gazette, a London newspaper,
which has the cares of the vvorld upon,
lu lock, as urging that Mr. George Curzon,
under Secretary ot State for Foreign Ar
falrs, be'requested to define tho policy of
the British government in regard to the
construction of the Nicaragnan Canal.
The Gazelle asserts that there Is great
danger ot a serious interruption of the
friendly relations of Great Britain and
the United States on account of this canal.
Our esteemed evening contemporary,
which breathes so deeply the atmosphere
of Piccadilly and St. James' Park, need

to try to restore Queen Lftibkulunl, which,

that no matter what he Way say Mr.

In your valued Issue of yesterday evening
we notice that under the heading "Crashed

the biieony. on the third floor ot our new
building giving away.
We m Lsh to correct the erroneous impres
sion which many ol jour readers may have
derived from this by stating that it was
not the balcony nor a "400-pound section"
of it which fell to the ground, but one of the
cnst-lron panels, weighing about 120
jiounds, which fell through the carelessress
of one of Ihe workmen We do not think
that condemnation, if any, should Ik- laid
at the feet of the contractor and builder,
for Hie ironwork should have been in po
sition many weeks ago, ami It would hardly
be fair to expect the builder to retain all
the scarfoldlng and sheds on tills account.
We consider ourselies very lucky that
what might have been such a terrible ac
cident went off with no worse results than
a Lad scare lo the pedestrians and a smashed

Gossip of the Dai.
Two lawyers were discussing legislative
acts past, present, and to come, this mora
ine.. 'Do you know," remarked one of them,
"that there is probably not a Lnrber shop
or a saloon in the city that Is not violating
the law all the time? Buch is the case, and
drug stores, too, may lie counted along
with them. An act of the old legislative
assembly, passed on June 20, 1870, and
Hill in force, aayH that the owners or
keepers ot restaurants, eating houses,
barrooms, soda fountains, liarber shops,
and bathing bouses shall keep posted in
a conspicuous place a price list of the
commodities they have for sale. Failure
tq comply with the law is deemed u mis

$20 to $50. Except In hotels and res
taurants where the bills of fare arc kept

"There are very few places in the

success is assured."

Sent from. Washington
Senator Harris, when asked to express
his view son Ihe future of sliver in the Dem
ocratic party, gac the following revised
and signed Interview:
"I am satisfied that a large majority of
Ihe Democrats of tlie United States an- ill
favor ot utilizing silver as the money of ulti
mate redemption, and favor its free anil un
limited coinage In the, United States at 1G
to 1, without regard to the position of
any other nationality) on the face of the
earth. It Is In the power of the United
States to adopt atul 'maintain a financial
system responsive to ftie SsMrcsts and con
venience of 70.000,000 people that we rep
resent, money having- alivajs been, lielnir
now, aiil will alwaysjbe. Just whatthelaw
or Its country mikes It.
"It Is purely a creature of the law ot Its
own country; it cannot te more nor less
than the law of Its country makes It, and
it can be money nowhere else. The idea
that the United Stales' has to consult other
countries as to what its financial policy
is to be, or the Idea of Ihe citizens of the
United States slopping to inquire as to
the real or supposed value of the thing of
which Ugal-tender dollars are made, is the'
grossest of all gross absurdities.
"The Constitution jimmies that Congress
shall coin money and regulate the value
thereof. Congress has coined one piece
ot money composed of 23 8 grains of gold
and has regulated Its cable to liounedollar.
"It has coined another composed of
112.5 grains of standard sllier and
regulated its value to lie one dollar. It
has Issued $500,000 000 of paper money,
eomiHjcd of fives, tens, fifties, hundreds,
fire hundreds, thousands and leu thousand
dollar bills, and has regulated the value of
each to be its face di-nomi nation.
'Congress lias made all three of these
moneys legal tender for all debts due the
goveruinent or Individuals. Any one ot
these- dolkirs, whether of paper, gold or
silier, will perform ec-ry money function
that any other one of them can perform,
will buy as much and pay as much debt as
any other. In ilew of the fact that coin
must regulate the lolume'of money iu
eiery country, lo fall to utilize either
gold or silier must uccessanly diminish
the volume ot redemption money in tlie
country; so falling to one-half Its former
volume which Inevitably doubles the
purchasing power of tlie remaining half
and reduces tho price of everything ex
changed for money to one-half its former
"If the Democrats of the country who
favor tree and unlimited coinage will thor
oughly organize or have themselics repre
sented in the councils of the Democratic
parly, they are In a majority and will ab
solutely control the action of the next
"If they fall to thoroughly organize and
exert the power that they possess theactlve
epergles of the single gold standard men will
probably control, which leads the Demo
cratic party to defeat and the country to
ruin " J. S. Van Antwerp in San Fran
II has been the habit of Democrats for
several months to talk optimistically about
the certain success of the sound money nu-
sade which Prcsidenl Cleveland started.
The fear that Mr. Cleveland's campaign
tor sound money is intended to force his
nomination opon the Dcmncratic conven
tion for a third, terra has, it is slated,
bad much to do with preventing as rapid
a growth of sound money sentiment as the

There has beeli for some weeks past a
strong belief expressed by those most
familiar with Kentucky affairs that, what
ever Senator Blackburn's chances for re
election might be, owing to his personal
popularity ami bis wide acquaintance with
the voters in the State, the contest for the
Governorship would be a most bHter
one, and that Its canva'ss would be likely
to have a strong effect.up.in fie campaign
for members or the Legislature. General
Bradley etni-ds firmly and squarely on a
sound money platform, and General Har
din, wlille presumably running on a Demo
cratic platform which indorsed the Ad
ministration, Is known t be a personal
advo:atc of free coinage at 16 to 1. Up to
the present tlnia during his canvass he has
been careful lo omit, so far as possible, all
references to lhefWanciar question, but
inttic debate last nfjht be was drawn out
b General Bradley and forced to state his
position before an audience principally
composed of business men of Louisville,
who arcopposed lit thtr silver heresy .
It Is frankly admitted by Eentuckians
that" (be opcclcg of the Joint debate ludl-
cates an even wider spilt In the Democratic
party- In that State than had previously
been anticipated There -are to be- eleven
other debates following t he o ne of last even
ing, and which win take praceln theprinci
pal towns ot Kentucky before large audi
ences. The influence ot Secretary Car
lisle's two speeches and ot the ablest ncirs
papers In the State hascrcatc'J a strong sen
timent In the Democratic party against
independent free coinage, nnd the compro
mise at the State convention by which a
free coinage man was nominated upon a
sound money platform has done little to
harmonize the party upon the money ques
tion. Gen. Bradley, who is one or the most
accomplished stumpers in the 8oisth, will,
it is said by prominent Kentucklans In
Washington, make rotes everywhere for
the State ticket, many ot which will be
drawn directly from the Democratic party,
while, owing to the disgust which Is felt by
the business interests of tho State, there is
likely to be a large stay-at-home vote when
Ibc election takes place. J. M. Carson,

We knew him In the good old days
Of Shakespeare's wood notes wild,
And Jonson, at the Triple Tun,
Proud Fancy's wayward child;
And Sheridan, and countless more
Ot worthies dead and past:
But up to what complexion here
Have we all come at last?
Where are the fine, grand plays of old?
Upon the shc-lr they lie;
The dust, perhaps, fur ages more,
Will gather inches high.
Behold the great playmaker no,
He needeth not a pen;
For plot he never hesitates
About the why and when.
The classic Is not needed now.
And Fancy plays no prankst
The playwright but desireth
A good, nice pair of tanks;
A buzz saw sultetb well his needs.
A Iocomoliic fast,
A shipwreck on a canvas sea,
A good sheet-Iron blast.
His study Is a Joiner's shop.
. Or where they make machines.
And there, perplexed, upon his hand
His wond'rous brow be leans.
The Jacksaw is his fertile pen.
And thus he makes bis plays
(Oh! shades of Shakc-ieare once revered!)
To please these latter days.
Yet , not his fault, the noble scribe.
The People he must please,
Togatherlu the wherewithal
With m hlch to live at case.
He docl.li hut his leiel liest
Though critics may deride-.
And so the drama's future fame
Moves on with rapid stride!

Honey-sweet, sweet as honey smell the lilies.
Little lilies ot the gold in a ring;
Little censers of pale said are the lilies
That the wind, sweet and sunny, set
Smell the rose, sweet of sweets, all a-blow-ins!
Hear the cuckoo call In dreams, low and
Ltke a icry Joho-a-Dreams, coming, going.
There's honey in tlie grass at qur feet.
There's honey In the leaf and the blossom.
And honey in the night and the day.
And honey sweel the heart In Love's Ixisom,
And honey-sweet the words Love will say
The bee seeks forhoncy In the lilies.
He rifles t he rose of her store;
Goes drunken with the honey as his Willis,
And yet the honey grows more and more.
O Love, with the rose all a-blowlng,
O Love, wilh the lilies breathing bliss.
Come gather of her honey, gold and glow

Come gather all her honey as your will is,
