Senator Morto.i was greatly elated
lr the Louisiana decision of the electoral
tribunal. "Eight to seven all the way
through." he chuckled as he came out of
room ; tbls makes Hayes president."
Without delay he had a telegram sent to
Gov. Hayes In these words : "This de
cides the Issue In Oregon and South Car
olina." Senator Morton's presence In the
commission was a shame to the Republi
can party, as also was the presence ot
Garfield, Miller, Strong and Bradley.
W yesterday received a copy of the
Rational Republican and of the Capital,
from Washington, with the "compli
ments of Geo. D. Chafee," the Ineligible
Hayes elector. We were, In part, instru
mental in seuding Chafee to Washington
to tell Springer what he knew about in
eligibility. In doing so, we nearly broke
our neck as an applicant tor an appoint
ment from a Republican governor. Luck
ily we (.scaped the danger, and now take
pleasure In congratulating Chafee on the
good time he has had at Washington. If
we gave him a tree ride to the capital and
an opportunity to enjoy himself at the
public's expense, we are glad of It ; but,
the truth is, our shot-gun was in demand
jufet after the Ctiatee dispatch wax pub
lished, and, if in that moment our furious
eye had fallen upon Fprlnger, Wendling
and Merritt. they would all have been
sent to the kingdom as fullot shot as they
now are ot Indignant Democracy.
Ma. RerRESE.KTATtvt Kolka has In
troduced a bill to punish minors by a
fine ol $10 lor misrepresenting their ages
to saloon keepers In order to get intoxi
cating liquors. This bill ought to be
enacted. Saloon keepers are punishable
by fine and imprisonment tor giving
liquor to minors. They are often im
posed upon. Minors, bearded like the
pard, with tbe appearance of a quarter
of a century on them, lie about their
ages and thus obtain liquor. Tbe sa
loon keeper, when he elves liquor under
these circumstances, is punishable, but
the lie-telling minor can laugh In his
sleeve and go untouched by the law.
Kouka would fine the young liar. Good.
Cut we would alse imprison birn. The
minor who is old enough to tell a lie to
get whisky Is old enougn to go to jail
with the man whom be deceives by his
lies into the doing of an unlawful act.
nsw HINT VOTERS?
Mr. Hlckey, member of the lower
house ot tbe general assembly, has in
troduced a bill to amend tbe election law
so as to have precincts of COO voters and
to have tbe polls open from 8 a.m. to 3
p.m. Tbe movement Is In the right di
rection. Five hundred men cannot vote,
without undue haste, atone poll in seven
hours. Mr. Hlckey would come nearer
tbe right thing by limiting the number
of voters at one poll to 300, and making
the hours from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. It only
300 votes were taken at any one poll, and
and the judges bad ten hours in which
to receive them, fraudulent voting
would be almost an Impossibility. Each
voter would be acquainted with nearly
all his fellow-voters, and the challengers
would know every voter in the precinct.
Small precincts are a better protection to
the ballot-box than registry laws.
BI'RXtHO OF THE CtlTEKJi AP
PH04H TO TUBS SI. LUlll
The business ot St. Louis and the gen
eral public of the west, will be seriously
discommoded by the destruction by fire
of the eastern approach of Eads' great
bridge. By this accident if accident it
may be called hall a million dollars
worth ot property was destroyed, and
thousands of dollars will be lost bv the
embarrassments of business that must
necessarily ensue. Several months will
elaps3 before tbe approach can be re
built It has been apparent to every
observor ot tbe surroundings ot tbe ap
proach just destroyed, that it would
sooner or later go up in fire and
smoke. Close to it touching ic almost
were several frame building! liable
to be destroyed by tire at any time ; and
no one who looked at those buildings
tailed to express the opinion that when
their time came to be sold out to tbe In
surance companies, the great bridge
would be in imminent danger of also be
ing licked up by the flames. Certainly
the managers of tbe bridge saw this dan
ger as clearly as tbe outside world
and It seems to us their neglect to profit
by their knowledge of the danger was a
neglect to exercise ordinary care of the
valuable propery they had in charge.
WATKIBfa RIVER RESOLUTION.
The resolutions of Hon. E. B. Watkins,
representative in the general assembly of
tbe Mound City district, urging the Im
portance of improving the Mississippi In
such manner as to make available the
Eads jetties and redeem the fertile valley
of the river from overflow, will, we hope.

the republic Capt. Eads, who has been
successful In all his undertakings suc
cessful In the taoe of the scientific opposi
tions of the scientific engineers of
the government baa no doubt
of his ability to redeem
the Mississippi valley, and give a depth
of water sufficient to float vessels of
twelve to flltecn feet draught from New
Orleans to Cairo. This he says ho can
do for not much more than half the
amount proposed to be expended upon
levees, and can make the work permanent
good tor all time. This Is the Idea Mr.
Watkins wishes to present prominently
to tbe public. He believes in the des
tiny of the Mississippi valley, and that It Is
high time the government should be giv
ing to the people of the valley the aid
they so much need in making it speedily
what in time It Is sure to become, the
seat of power and wealth In the republic.
oik eoMSfox sonooM.
We cepy Into our columns this morn
ing a communication to the Evansville
Courier, in which the public schools of
Cairo are mentioned in very compliment
ary terms. We are not unaware ot the
fact, that these words of praise will give
to some of our good people, who have
not taught themselves to be just in ref
erence to our public schools, not a little
pain ; but, notwithstanding this, we feel
inclined, and do not desire to resist tbe
impulse, to endorse all the Evansville
correspondent says, and add considerable
to his applauding words. The fact is,
we have schools of which we may well
be proud. They are conducted with
marked ability by Prof. Alvord. who
does much with little display works to
good purpose and refuses to sound the
trumpet ot bis own praise. As a teacher
he is better than good, and walks close
upon the heels ot the superlative.
The feature ot the communication
which will give tbe greatest shock to the
uerves ot tbe great educators of our city
now holding up their hands in amaze
ment at the condition of our schools, Is
the commendation of the board of edu
cation for the introduction of pho
nography and telegraphy as brancnes of
common school education. To quiet
the perturbed aouls ot these com
plaining people, we may say,
that phonography is taught outside of
school bours, not by teacnera o
the schools, but by pupils, and that teleg'
rapby is taught without cost to the public
But, in our opinion, phonography should
be taught In tbe schools, and telegraphy
can take nothing out of tbe public purse
by being used as a means of communi
cation between the several schools of the
city ; Indeed, we have no doubt telegraphy
addsefficlency to the schools and cheapens
their cost. We are a believer in the three
Ki system. We have no doubt that the
common schools are abused when more
than "Reading, 'Kiting and 'lUtnmetlo."
are taught in them. But just exactly
where to stop in teaching these branches
cannot, with great deflniteness, be deter
mined ; and, in our opinion, our board ot
education, by Its present policy, does not
overstep the limits ot the comoion school
idea. In short, we have no doubt that
our schools, under their present manage
ment, are Institutions we should be proud
of and are in duty bound to entourage.
