woald hail her re-elec'ion by the
County CoorS next week with satis

duty, and has proven one cf the moit
eapable rf school superintendents.
She possesses the industry, tact and
ability, and is remai sable for her on

Ma. Jobdax, the prseent County At

ing him for re-election. Tie has been
a cafe and firudnnt adviser, has been
always on the tide of f conomy, and
has been thoroughly faithful at all
times and u.id:r all circumstances.
He deserves such a full and complete
recognition ol his ability and fidelity
as re-election by the County Court
next week would be. It is always safe
to let well enough alone.
Oji Cbristnvs dy we received a
dispatch from Atlanta! stttlng that the
Southern Express Company had car
ried into that place 200 jugs that, as a
witty friend jys, "did tot all contain
ink." The consrqnence was a great
deal of drunkenness. But Atlanta
Wis not a'o e. The same company
carried from this city to neighboring
prohibition towns 2529 jugs, ranging
from quarts to two gallons, 160 kegs,
equivalent to 3200 quart j nits and thirty
barrels, equivalent to 4SC0 quart juvs.
These l9Cts, procured from the com

Opposition to a Legislative caucus

Tub death of Gen. John A. Logan
removes from the field of American
politics a notable figure. He was by
nature ardont and Impetuous, some
time! intemperate, and therefore made
enemies among his fallow Republicans
as wsll as among Democrats. To the
South, ever since the war, he was bit
ter and Implacable, and he largely
based his national strength upon his
ability to surpass Mr. Blaine, the
preeent custodian of the bloody shirt.
But we have survived his rancor and
can easily forgive an over teal, much
of which was duo to personal causes.
Gen. Logan was perhaps the ablest of
the volunteer soldiers of the Federal
army during the civil war, and rrs to
well deserved rank ancV distinction,
lie could bn orjve aren, iorrnsbnors,
bnttempeiing this cliarsctrris'ic by
discretion, be made an able com
mander and was much beloved by his
oflljers and men. His d ia h mikes a
clean field for Blaine, who has now r.o
opponent for the Pres'deccy among
republicans tbat he need fear.

at their own sweet will. On Monday
the wires running out of Washington
were ouraenea whu aispaicnej pre
dicting the ultimate fate of tha bill.
the dangers besetting lr, and the ma
jority by which it might pass.
A caretul canvass oi tne Senate bis
been made on the bill and it will pass
that body by a very large msiority
unless come powerful influence should
change existing opinion there during
tbe holiday recess. Out of the seventy
six Senators only thirteen are willing
to commit themselves as opposed to
the nieaaure. Sanstsr Camden, of
West Virginia, a strong railroad man,
does not believs the opposition can
rally more than fifteen or sixteen voti a.
Senator William, of California, Seu
ator Standard's right band man, con
cedes the passeg.i of the bill. There
is gieat feeling throughout the West
npon the enhiect, much more than in
the Ea6t. Western men who profess
to be familiar with the public senti
ment of that section eay that no Wes'
ern member or Senaior ciu'd ever
hope to bs elected to any office again
if he Should vote against the measure.
A good maay Nenatirs will vote In
favor of the bill, rot became they are
convinced tbat it is a good measure,
but because their constituents desire
it, or, a one cf them expressed it to
me, "If I were to vote against the
measure it would take tbe rest of my
days to explain niy vote to my con
stituents." A New England Senator said: "I
know of a man who is a director In,
three manufacturing concerns nhich
buy annually 26,000 bales of cotton.
Tlin freight on this cotton from Texas
Is figured down 'so lew tbat the profit
to the railroad amcunti practically to
nothing. If we cnmpal the roads to
revise their through rates npon the
basis of their short haul rates tbe re
snlt will be that thit cotton tow man
nfactnred in New England will be
shipped to Liverpool and la'd dwn
on th wharves thrrs cheaper than it
could be sent to M ls ailni'etts. The
a line holds good with wentern wheat.
Hass an wheat, evea with tbe duty
added, will bs delivered st tbe port of
New York for lesa than it wonld roet
tirsioeit in Minnesota and ahiplt

Another prominent Republican Ben
ator said: "mere are a great many
things aoout this bill that 1 don't like,
nut the bill is a polit cil nnrsity
We mut have something of tbii kind
and at this s.ssion.
The benato baa been si 1 ng con

wero very confident they could b;at
this mevnre, but cow they find that
the tide of pnblic sentiment in fav
of the proposition is to strong that it
bat even reached th Sena e. It is
believed that the bill will be tasatd
by tbe Senate tome time in January
aril agreed to by the House without
much dtbate or delay.
