Mac has uot developed out of a Jackass ;
but there is solid reason for Indulging
the hope thatlr he progresses, as he has
for some time past, a Jackass may dually
be developed out of him, and In course

event will tako centuries In Its realiza

The llcautlfnl McCartney, of the Me
tropolis Timet, Is a good sort of a body,
but very uncertain. "or a time he played
the Intense ltadic.il ; then led by Hogg,
ot Vienna, or leading Hogg, he bolted
his party; after which, pretending to be
still a lUdlcal, he became Intensely Hour
bonlc In his politics, aud united his' for
tunes with ,Mr. Mater In lighting the
d d niggers who were impudent enough
to desire to learn to read. Wo congratu
lated Mac 'during the canvass hist tall
upon bis , desertion of the Radicals, but
were compelled to say to hhu tliat we re
gretted he had gone na.t u aud taken
.his stand with the Dourlioas of ouriwrty.
He rem forgave us for exprcing this
tendir regret, and strikes at us in rv

our philosophy Is not disturbed by these
assaults. tVe continue imperturbably

garded the auctioneer. "I don't think,"
tald Artemus reflectively, "he ever told a
lie, unless It was to atnu-p the crowd or
make something by It."
Mr. McCartney, of Metropolis, who is
the twin of Mr. I). I.. Davis, of the Sun,
is in the city. Mac is a liand'oincr man
Kouiewhat than D. I.., hut on the hole,
they as nearly resemble each other ns
two peas resemble each other. It has
been said, on tever.U occasions, that Mr.
Davis resembles Mr. McCartney more
than Mr. McCartney resemble him, but
wethlnk'thls i Is a mistake; and, really,
those who have given the subject clo5c
attention arc Inclined to decide that Mr.
McCartney Is not far from resembling
Mr. Davis more tliau Mr. Davis resembles
lilin. That Davis resembles Mac about
the mouth, no one can doubt. In both
their mouths can be seen at a glance the
comely cat-tlsh cxprrson. It is also
conceded tliat Mac resemble Davis about
the ears. The length ol them is pro
verbial, nnd it has been observed that
both their vpVsco arc pllehtd exactly to
the key of a tlrst-clan bray.

$tj lately, tub Sttpwu'c Court of Indiana,
we learn from our exchanges, made (nine
" Uttc res ting decbloni in relation to tho
use, of tho trectof cities by railroad
i. ocwipBles. In one cao the court held
!j7 that, under tho stotutcs of tho State ro

pancy or the street hy a stoa'hi .mllroatl
company with Us track , con
stitutes a new annronriatlnu ol
such . u character as to authorize
the owners of adjoining lots to recover
damages. The court held this to he an
additional service, a use ouhldo of and nt
variance with the design contemplated
hi the dedication ol streets to the tise of
the public. The supporting facts on
which these, decisions rest arc that run
ning a railroad along n struct damages
the value of abutting property by nrrlug
and cracking the plastering and wall", by
the smoke, sparks, dut and nol-c, and
by other inconveniences consequent
upon the use ol 'team ns a motive power.
At the same time, the principle was enun
ciated that running street cjrt by horse
power, not tea in. U not audi a variance
from tlit proper use of the streets, In
new of their dedication, a to entitle
owners to datnhgo-i.

Dougherty. Mr. Mert, a l!c-

moved a vote of thank to Gov. Dough

that he could, on an occasion such as he
was then participating In, rle above all
partisan cou-lderallons and Dr. Con

In the above, the Oa:tt' Indulge In
the won-t kind of logic. We have not
denied the phenomena calb-d spiritual.
We know that a mysterious power moves
tables .and chairs, makes raps and
manifests intelligence. Wc admit the
phenomana, aud only refuse to believe
that they are produced by disem
bodied "plrits until better evidence than
wc have seen or heard of lia been fur
nished. To a-ik a man to licllevc that a
power discovered by Keely moves ma
chinery as steam does Is one thing, but
to ask him to believe that tho power is
spiritual, because it is mysterious, Is an
other thing. A man we know to be
truthful says to us: "I have s-eii the
motor anil have witnessed It operate ma
chinery." There Is no reason why we
should not believe him. Hut he
adds: '"The power that movd the ma
chinery, wag not steam, electricity or the
result ofcliemlcd action ; it was not hit
man; It warn spiritual power. The souls
of disembodied humans, operating
through the m6tor, moved It.'' There Is
