Dr.Mc3cbh, president cf Princeton,
is not satisfied with the explanation
and disclaimer made by President El
lot. of Harvard; who, in letter to
the former, carefolly Inverted tb
vents of the Harvard celebration, and
strongly disclaimed any intention of
inflicting it jury npon the feelings of
Dr. McCcsb. He assured the latter
that "everyone" condemned : Dr.
Holmes for his remarks. Dr. Holmes
did not represent Harvard sentiments,
Dr. McCosh was bgged to believe.
On the face of the letter it was appar
ent that Dr. !iot was most anxious to
convince Dr. McCcsh that it was all
m'slake, and that the proper thing to
do was to shake bands, and let by:
gonesbe bjg nts. But this does not
tatisfy the sturdy Scotch philosopher,
who reads in the poem of the "Ante
cratof the Bieakfast TaWadelib
erate intuit to the venerable college
which he represented on the interest
ing occasion. Dr. McCosh has acttd
With becoming dignity in this matter,
and every man of right feeling must
- applaud blm.
Charles Dddlit Wabmbb, one of
the gentlemen wbo compose the Har
pers' party now making a tour of the
South under the auspices of Mr. John
H Ioman, of New York, is well known
throughout the country to persons of
anything lice literary taste or cultiva
tion, and no mm hai been mora read
or admired than Mr. Warner, who, in a
recent and carcful y prepared article
in the Princeton Rivie.w, presanted the
South to his readers in a spirit of fair
nessand candor in marked contrast
with soma paper that ws recall in
other and more popular periodicals
written by Southern men. Ws are
glad to see that thia is being remem
bered by the people of the cities visited
by the Harpers' party, and that Mr.
Warner has been the recipient not of
special courtesies to distinguish him
from his coafreref, as that would be in
bad taste, bat of unmistakable and
qu'et acknowledgments of his ssnsible
and manly ata tement of oar case as it
presented itself to him. With such an
earnest of good will for the South Mr,
Warner may be relied upon to do as
full justice in the narrative of hid
ism wrmen are s'ea4iiy gaining
their rights under the Constitution
Bit by bit they are tearing away the
veil that has bo long obscured the
vision of even some fair minded men
where they wore concerned, and in a
few years they are des ined to stand
in every Etate the c qnals of men be
fore the law and eligible to all pro
fessious and all offices. Just now they
are eligible as school r fficera in Call

ana, Maine, Massachoee'ti, Minnesota,
New Hampshire, New Yoik, Pennsyl
vania, Rhode Ia'and, Vermont, Da

Washington Territories; we think also
in Oregon and Mcntana. In Michigan
women are eligible as school inspect
ors, in Connecticut as school visitors,
and in New Jersey as school trustees,
In Wisconsin women are eligible to
all school offices except that of State
Superintendent. In Iowa women are
eligible to all school offices, and one
member of the State Board of Exam,
inera must be a woman. Here in 6b el
by county, a woman worthily fills the
office of Superintendent of.Sobools,
and we hope that the Legislature that
is to meet next January will make a law
enabling women to vote ior and to be
eligible for School Trustee, or Visitor,

Th death of ex President Arthur,
at bis home in New York cily, yester
aay, removes a politician wno was
purely an accident in the Presidential
chair. Nominated for that higheet of
offices, even by the still exulting and
' dominating Republican party, Mr,
Arthur could not have been elected
to it in 1880. Indeed, the Republi
can party would not have nominated
him under any conditions, as even as
the candidate for the Vive Presidency
on the Garfield ticket he was a weight
to carry. His place in his party be
tors this honor was tendered him was
that of a political manager, the manip
ulator of "strikers," who did the dirty
work of the party arid made a living
by it He was the center of an all
powerful faction of this character in
New York city, that was for Re
publicans the counterpart of Tam
many at that time for Democrats.
He was not a speaker, nor had he
filled any office other than thtt of
Collector o' the port of New York,
which he held but for a short time.
Yet, as President he acted with credit,
paying especial attention to the soeial
duties that devolved upon him. He
had the habits, the polish and appear
ance of a gentleman, and while he did
nothing to discredit himself did nothing
to aignalias himself as President. His
administration was without special
distinction, and he passed easily out
of the life if the na'ion as he vacated
the chair of slate for Cleveland.
