TVtri'l of tbe Chicago anarchist,
which has been enjragicg the attention
of Hip entire country for the past two
moutba, waa brought to a close yester
day. B?vea of the eight defendants
were found guilty c! murder as

jletV, ig givn flf cen ywa in tbe
penitfutiaiy. This veid.ct will receive
the ntKjU'jliflcd indorsement of the en
tire people, and its effect for good will
be incalculable. It ia a dcclaretion
that the law must bo enforced, and
that those who to themselves up in
oproiUion to it mnat pay the penalty,
evf n that of death. In a government
of and by the people, there ia no room
for anarchy, socialism or communism,
a fact which the verdict of yetUTilny

of ihise who havo been led aHtray by

Ul IM. A. M. WJiVr-HI LfcTrEK.
As far back as tho days of Robe rt J.
Walker. Trentics, Holt, Pharkey,
Footu, Thompson and Quitman, Holly
Bprii gs has furnished more than her
proportion of the genius Bnd states
ma ;ship which has made MiHsiscippi
n conspicuous in the sis'erbood cf
Sta'cs. Sineo the grand old days of
Roger I5artn and D. 0. Glenn Molly
Springs has been noted for her ta'eiit.
She now boasts of her Clayton; her
Feutiitratona, her Wateon, and cer
tainly has abundant cause to be proud
of Gen, A. M. West, whrss letter will
be found elsewhere in the Ai-pkal.
He wps a candidate for the Vico-rresi
dency on the Greenback ticket in the
last Presidential oleclion which gives
additional importance to hlg present
utiVrarice". It ia truo Gen. West is
growing old and may have dared to
eipress his views without the written
cousont of the juvenile politicians
who a'e tryiug to fix a max
imurn fr party service. Bat, not
withitanding bia advanced age and
bia disregard of the rule imposing si
lence and Tetlracv. we presume bis
advice and tbe wis join he has learned
in the pru Meal scbooi of experience
will give an i-uch weight and force to
bis coutiaitlB an the u'tersnces of tbe
Juveniles who ars atitl tarrying at
Jericho indiistrloiiNly cultivating their
beards. Gen. West hs boon more
of a tudont, a philosophical state!'
man, Hun a partisan olllca ruekcr,
and his views are worthy of the high-
eat consideration, and will command
It, especially among those familiar
with hia splendid abilities and ex
alted character. It will be aeon that
Geo. West again allies himself with
tho chi'dren of Damocracy. The
reasons he gives are tersely stated
Thre ia no other robin far the
fr.euds of ths couatitu'.lon, and es
pee'aily for the people of the South
AsUeu. West forcibly ssys, thoro is
no room for a third party; that there
novr will be but two gnat political
parties in this country : that the
two old psrtirts are strong in numbers
a'ld ics.riirues, and eic'j determined
to live until the olhor dies. And the
pirly that dies will net he the Demo
cra'to inr'.y. Is inherent vitality
aud integrity have ei.nhUd it to out
live very phaan ol Federaliitin, Whig
ism, Kiiownothinjiistn and Republic
anism. Iti strength in dnnctiuiHe of
time will 110 donbt Ira 1 to exoeases and
corruption, end Rome now party
will orgtui?.i and defeat it. But in
the future, as i:i ths past, purified, by
the li ry crucible cf rVeat, the
Do'ivwrscy will p tea through the or
deal of adveni'y and rise to now ef

THE VEEN'S SPErCII.
The Queen' speech, which waa read
before the BritisU Parliament on Thurs
day, as waa txpected, puts off any leg
islation upon home rule sntil Febru
ary. Tbe ao called "Queen's speech"
ia a document with which tbo Qocen
haa nothing to do. It in no way re
sembles the President's message re
ceived by Congress at its opening.
Tbe Ministers prepare it ar.d it is tub
m t ed to the Queen for her approval,
and nobody ever heard of her dis
approving or changing it. She is not
responsible for it ; tbe responsibility
lies upon the administration that pro-
pos".s it, and its statements and recom
mendations are theirs. After the
speech of Thursday was read, some of
tho prominent members of the two
pur iss gave hints as to their present
sentiments and intended policy. Mr,
Gladstone declared, "Ireland is the
question of the day," and that he still
stond by tbe principles of the meas
ures ho had introduced. Lord
Churchill announced that the govern
ment deoine! any attempt to coerce Ire
land aa, nmlor present clrcnmstanccs,
unwind. We may therefore conclude
thai I ish coercion is now one of those
giapes Hint political foxis have (lis
covered to ba sour. The acknowledge
ment implies much, for if Ireland,
with the terrors of coercion in view,
has stood so persistently for homo rule,
what will she do with the obetnnle re
moved? In the House of Lords the
Duke of Argyle used language that
was no.oredit to bis sentiments or bis

Washington. Ausust 17. Tho re
lirt'uieiit of tiuraeon General Muiray
ot the Army, and the departure of
President Cleveland before fill.ng the
vacaney, tend to make "am y politics"
somewhat active. Under tha law the
Piesident may seloct a Burgeon geneinl
from amonz all the officers of tho mcd
ical cors of the ermy, which contains
a large number of ambitions and able
men. If seniority of rank and seivico
should govern, of course Uol. J. it
ItBXter, tho acting surgeon gf narai,
would succeed to tue vacancy, dm
nearly a score of men whose names
are lower on the litt are active com
petitors for the place. Among them
are fiurffeon Sutherland, whose com
mi8ion as colonel dates from 1870;
t-urireon Bailey, whose colonel s com
mission bears tne aaw 01 January
1883. Ool. Glover Perin, assistant
surgeon general, whose commission
dates from July z, 1884, ana wno iu
rescn 1110 ags lor retirement ju
vember 17. 1887. and Thomas A. Mc
Parlin, whose co onel's commission is
dated September 10, 1875, aud who
will reacu the ape cf sixty-four on
July 10, 1889.
Among officers below the grade of
colonel there are seveial candidates,
whose friendj hope for their success.
Oae of them is Lieutenant Colouol
Joseph K, Smith, who was appointed
an aeslstant surneon in 18'4 and was
promoted to tbe rank of full surgeon
with the grade of Msjor in 1862. His
commission as Lieutenant Colone)
bears date January 9, 1885. Col.
Smith stands high in his corps and it
is understood that influential fiiends
are urging his promotion. Another
officer wuo hss strong backing iB
Surgeon Basil Norris, whose commis
sion as Lieutenant Colonel was issued
December 14, 1SS2. The f.iends of
Surgeon John S. Hillings are prs ing
his claims with vinor. He received
his commission as Mxjor ia 1876. Be
sides the candidates atiove mentioned,
there aie Surireots Pace. Mcore,
McKee, Huntington and seveial o'.h
ore, anil it is probable that the delay
in niflkintr tho iiDi oiutment will bring
