Whom Shall We Nominate,
On the 4th of March, 1885, the Ko-
publican party will have been tu
power twenty-four consecutive, years.
No other political organization ever
enjoyed unbroken possession of the
gouernmeiit so long. The Demo
cratic tenure, winch, beginning iu
182.), ended in 1861, was interrupted
by thoeloetiou of Harrison, In 1810,
and of Taylor, In 1848. The feeling,
therefore, that the time has come for
an overhauling of tho accounts, to
which a change of parties is iudis
pcneable, is as natural as it .is gener
al, aud unless some unforeseen disas
ter befall the Democratic party be
tween tills aud thePrcsidontlal elec
tion, tho next President will bo a
A prize so great aud a prospoct so

the very gravest responsibilities, and
on the other band tho very greatest
dangers. Thosowho, largo or small,

of the event cannot bo too careful
how they act or what they Bay. In
particular should Democrats guard
themselves against hot personal ref
erences. Among tho dangers, that
of con filet in it aspirations is by no
means the least to bo anticipated and
feared. Personally it Is a mutter of
little moment who is nominated for
President so he be capable, reliable
and honest At this moment three
possible nominees are mora ooneplou
ous. They are McDonald, Cleveland,
and Hoadlcy. . Any one of these
would make a good President. Our
own choice is McDonald, for this
reason : i
First, that he Is an honest man.
Second, that be is au able man.
Third, that be ia an exporiouced
Fourth, that he is an available man
Fifth, that his services to the coun
try and the party give him a claim
to tho respect and gratitude of both.
At the propor time and with prop
er disposition we -shall give exam
pies and reasons for this preference,
drawn from the life and character of
our excellent Old Saddle-bags, a man
who has commended himself by his
good works to the love of the people,
and by his great wisdom to the confi
dence of the business community; a
man with a big brain and a big
heart and a calm temper; a just a
trained and a friendly man. ' But
whilst preferring McDonald, or rath
er believing him to be the strongest
and safest candidate the party can
put in the field under all the circum
stances, we shall have nothing to say

Tho issue is too momentous to be

HOPKINSVILLE, KENTUCKY, TUESDAY, OCTOBER
Commander Henry' Glass, U. S.
navy, was for some timo stationed at
Sitka, Alaska, with the United States
ship Jamestown, and afterward visi
ted every part of the coast in com
mand of the Wovbusott, was in San
Francisco lately, where bo was inter
viewed with regard to tho produc
tions aud possibilities of our great
The fisheries of Alaska he thought
were valuable, and destined to play
au important part in tho commerce
and industries of the Pacific coast.
Salmon of fine quality are found in
great abundance in every creek and
river of the territory. It 1b probable
that several canneries will be in op
eration this year.' The waters iu
plucca are teeming with halibut of
the finest quality, aud already the
herring fishery has become of great
value, works having been estab
lished during the past year for tho
manufacture of herring oil. Great
numbers of whales frequent tho In
ner channels and bays, aud arrange
ments are now beins; made to prose
cute whaling extensively. This can
easily be done, aud at less, expciise
than iu the open seas, as small and
inexpensive vessels can bo used on
the calm bays and channels of Sodtb
custcrn Alaska. To the northward
and westward of Sitka are banks of
considerable extent, where 'very fine
eodltsb are found iu great abundance.
The vast timber products of Alas
ka promiso to be of gi-cut valuo iu
the near future. Ou all the islands
and the mainland of southern Alas
ka are heavy forests of fir, spruce, al
der and cedar. Up to tho present
time but very little timber has been
cut in Alaska only that needed for
the consumption of the territory.
Out, with the inroads now being
made on . the timber of California,
Oregon aud Washington territory,
Alaska must soon become a source of
supply, aud from the' accessibility of
the timber along tho extensive shore
line it can be exported very cheaply.
On many of tlio islands are found
large quantities of hard yellow cedar,
superior to any found elsewhere on
this coast The wood is quite hard
easily worked, takes a high polish, is
quite aromatic, and is said to possess
the power of resisting the attacks of
the toredo, which, if true, would
make it valuable iu ship - building.
Commander Glass was told when in
commailH in Alaska, that the tim
bers, of a Hussian vessel constructed
of this wood, after being somo forty
years under water, were fouud per
fectly sound, and that they had not
been touched by the toredo.
Of the mining prospects of Alaska:
Commandertilass was quite hopeful.
The placer mines, of the Harris dis
trict are already valuable. During
"1882 over $200,000 In gold dust were.
sent away, only the crudest machin
ery being used by the miners. Quartz
mining is equally promising in the
same district, several extensive
ledges havlug been discovered and
traced ono or two milcs,aud although
only surface work has beon dono iu
prospecting, a great deal of fine
quartz has been shown. The want
of laws and courts to adjudicate dis
puted claims has prevented an ex
tensive work being done up to the
present timo. With the organiza
tion of the territory, capital would
bo attracted there and mines bf val
ue be developed. Coal has been re
ported in several portions of the ter
ritory, but as yet nothing of valuo
has been discovered. Coppor is re
ported in considerable quantities,
about the Copper river, to the west
ward of Mount St Ellas. ' .
At prescut nothing of importance
is dono in agaiculture, only; a few
small gardens beiug planted about
the principal settlements to supply
vegetables. The summer is too short
for any of our cereal crops, but pota
toes of very fine quality could bo
grown in Alaska, and in all the val
leys lino grasses grow luxuriantly,
and portions of Alaska will hereafter
bo valuable for grazing purposes.; .
Southeast Alaska produces furs of
fine value, and quite a largo trado is
carried on. Land and sea otter, lynx,
several variotles of fox the most
valuable being tho silver gvay fox
bear and doer skins are exported in
considerable quantities, ' t,!.
Contrary to popular opinion, Com
mander Glass regards southern Alas
ka, as an exceedingly healthy coun
try with a climate not at all severe.
The lowest temperature that ho saw
recorded in Alaska during tho two
winters he was thore was four de
grees below zero (Fahrenheit) This
was only ou one day of January, of
1882, in- latitudo 59 degrees north.
Tho highest temperature recorded on
board ship during the summer was
80 degrees, this was at Sitka, about
the middle of August Tho moau
temperature for December, January
and February, as found by hourly
observations taken ou Doard the
Jamestown, was about 32 degrees
(Fahrenheit). A great deal of rain
and snow fall In southeastern Alaska,
and thore are few. porfectly clear
days durinic tho year in what is
known a southeast Alaska, ' say
from Mount St. Ellas to tho soulhorn
boundary at Portland canal. The
limate of western and northern
Alaska differs very greatly, and
0very low moan temperature is expe
rienced In that portion of the territo
ry. This difference Is largoly due to
or Kuro Slwo, a portion of which is
deflected by the Aleutian Islands,
and impinges on the cosst In about
t ho latitude of Sitka.

Tho glossograph is a recent inven
tion by which speech is automatical
ly reproduced as soon 'as it is uttered.
A small apparatus is placed In the
mouth of the speaker in contact
with tho roof of his mouth, his
tongue and lips and on being con
nected with an electro-magnetic reg
istering apparatus, the sounds are
committed to paper. It is con
structed iu such a manner as not to
cause any inconvenience to the speak

voice should be raised, as it reprodu
ces a whisper as exactly as a shout;
the only condition is a distinct and
correct articulation. According to
the inventor's calculation, it will be
possiblo to write four or five times
as fust by means of the glossograph
as has hitherto been possible even by
tho quickest writer. An obstacle,
however, intervenes because it will
be difficult to decipher tho charac
