It is sail that a majority of the
members of the Illinois Legislature
favor John A. Logtn for United
States Senator, and he will be elected.
The proposed amendment to the

The Potter Committee does not

The Postmaster-General says that
unleass an appropriation is made be
fore the holiday recesses, all postal
ears will be taken off the first of Jan

forced to do this to make up the es
As8isfant Treasurer at New York, di
recting him to issue no more gold
certificates. This is done in prepar

this action changes the whole situa
tion. aDd that hereafter those who
deal with the treasury will be com
pelled to treat gold as money. Iu.
January the government will pay out
about $22,000.000, accruing interest
on bonds. This large sum will be
paid, not iu gold certificates, but in
gold coin. It is difficult to see what
the holders of this coin can do with
it except to let it pass at once into
general circulation, and in all proba
bility that is what will happen. In

Hon. James L. Campbell, of Chnrles
ton, South Carolina, was an Indepen
dent Democratic candidate for Con
grese at the recent election. The
same methods were used to beat him
that were used to beat Republicans.
He has employed experts and gath
ered a great deal of evidence, which
he proposes to give to any Demo
cratic newspaper that desires to pub
lish it. He says: "I believe the Dem
ocracy of the country have at least an
äqual interest with the Radicals in
denouncing and exposing the frauds
that have been committed, and I con-
ceive it to be my duty to give to my
own party, rather than to our oppon
ents, the benefits of any evidence I
may have in my possession." It will
probably be some time before a Dem

topics were written analysis in arithmetic,
working with reference to some object and
"how to speud your time from 8:3U to 9.

mated discussion. The majority of the
teachers were opposed to having w iitlcn

should be taught first und theu "the
why." The Superintendent thought that

A correspondent of the Winamac
Hepubi'ican a few weeks ugo made
the following sensible remarks in re
gard lo county papers:
The mutter of publishing newspa
pers is one that receives too little at
tention at the hands oi the public.
The publisher could relute to nn in
terested listener facts, and figures,
and trials, depr ivations aud struggles,
tii.it even to the iuex erienced would,
upon fair consideration, appear as
stupendous obstruction to happiness
aud success, liow little do the read
ers appreciate the labor of the editor
to give hit patrons a readable, inter
esting, newsy issue. They receive it
as a result of little or no effort, not
that it Is the fruit of a day or week's
careful consideration aud toil, miu
gled with discouraging prospects,
half pay, and finally is the actual
mouutueut of tho editor's pride and!
not the result of u well supported
worker. These remarks apply to the
areruge county papers, aud perhaps
to a iew luetropolitau publications.
How speedily tho publlo seize upou
the failure of a paper and contemptu
ously allude to its demise, not for a
moment realizing that the communi
ty is to blamo iu ninety-nine cases)
out of every one hundred.
The majority of metropolitan pa
pers are but the selections aud com
pilations of daily editions, and can be
published fora most iueignitlcaut sum
above the actual cost of tn) blank
paper. TtÜnlfl urged ugainst country
pupers, that this or that city puper is
only $1.00 per ariuum, and It Is a larg
er and b iter puper ; and right here
is the mistake in the public from the
following reasons: First, uine
teutbs of the country weeklies' give
the leading or impottant news and as
nock us the average citizen lluds
time to carefully rend aud ponder up
on. Sccoud, a county or homo paper
is a constant builder and improver of
ito locality and its power to benefit is
so incomputable that it becomes a gi
gantic Institution for good, even if it
bo the cae thut its work cannot be
seen. How hard would it be to fol
low successfully the advancement of
a child to point out when; it learned
this or that thing, aud hurder still to
point out the lofioonoe of a borne or
local paper, but its iutluence is one
of the most reul aud substantial mor
al engines that a &ociety can have.
Is it not as well to support home
institutiors as foreign? Uannot bus
iness men better afford to support a
local paper and sustain a good and
creditable citizen as to invest in en
terprises from which no local benefit
may be derived. A faithful local pa
per will do as much or moie for the
lueality in which it is published than
any enterprise ever conceived.
Tnen hew important it is that the
citizens of any locality, that fortu
nately have a paper, support it, not
only financially, but with friendly,
interested encouragement When
this plan ia adopted ror.il newspapers
will take on a higher character;
marked improvements will be notice
able in all local interest and no sus
pended papers will be reported.
Subscribers who sometimes are
delinquent if they only knew the
struggles and expenso incident to
publishing a paper would resolve nev
er to add a feather to tho weight of a
