in his power to stop them.

That is, Billy is on trial for murder.
As we predicted, there is every proba

interstate commerce will go to a confer

is no doubt understood and prearranged
in railroad circles to be the disposition ot
the whole subject for this session.
After three or four weeks of two double

to give it up, as witness:

The members of the Illinois legislature
are just at the point of breaking the tie hj
killing one another a little. The two par
ties are reported to have been on the
bloody brink of murder Saturday. If the
killing could be judicious and discrimina
tive, it would solve a distressing problem
and might inure to the benefit of the
country. Ilaynes, in the chair, would not

Another horrible massacre by fire.
Seventeen poor insane wretches were
reduced to ashes at Kankakee, 111., Sun

the fire far under headway before dis

of being made to realize their danger,
some of them so mad as to rush back into
the building after having been got out:
that is the sickening story. Now repair
the edifice with southern pine, of course.
The Cleveland Leader is emphatically
opposed to a painless death for murderers,
such as suggested by the recommendation
of the Governor of New York. It main
tains that the physical pain of death is the
element in the punishment which deters
brutal men from the crime. Why, then,
not return to the practice of burning?
Roast a murderer to death by a slow fire.
This would deter more than choking would.
We do not believe that the Leader is as
bloodthirsty as it pretends. Come, come,
death is a pretty severe punishment, with

many of them killed, he saw his oppor

and evil of Ingersoll last Sunday. lie
said among other shocking things: "Let
me frankly own to you that I believe Mr.
Ingersoll, in his rough attacks on religion,
is doing a real service to the cause of en

This is the kind of friends that have
dragged Grant down to what he is. That
is the principal reason we want Grant re
tired from his friends just as soon as it
can be done. Let this retirement be made
as soon as possible, and then let Grant
spend his salary in any scheme he chooses
to go into with his friends. The nation
will have done its duty by him, and will no
longer feel any responsibility for his circumstances.
The Socialist question is now the. upper
most question in Europe. The excep

Phelan denies that he said he was an
Ingersoll man. He says that, when he
was lying bleeding on the pavement, some
one of the unsympathizing spectators sug
gested that Ingersoll should be sent for to
administer the dying consolation. It was
a Fenian's brutality. Phelan declares
that he does not believe in Ingersoll, but
that, when he arrived at the hospital, he
sent for a priest and received the extreme
unction. So the anti-Hades Bob caa not
be complimented on any connection of his
doctrine with the butchery in O'Donovan
Roasa's office. Mr. Ingersoll is a heathen,
but net a dynamite haythen.
Brewster, the man who went into The
Mascot office in New Orleans toie a wit

dead. Houston, the said friend, tells one
story about tbe affray, and Osmond, the
editor, another; but they both agree that
The Mascot sanctum was inconveniently
full of pistol-practice for a few seconds,
and that the two gentlemen who had called
to interview the editor went away quite
immediately; and one, the late Brewster,
was taken to tbe hospital. There is great
deal of sensation in New Orleans about
this last killing; and the citizens, every
one with a gun nestling under his coat
tail, deplore the murderous reputation the
city is acquiring.
TU KMAVO BAITY.
Whatever change may be made in the
laws relating to Springfield, the fact will
remain that we must have a good, strong,
unexceptional man as the Republican can
didate for the mayoralty. The Globe
Republic has no candidate, and will make
no discrimination in favor of any one of
the men who have been mentioned. But
we must urge that a good man shall be
nominated, a man who can be elected, and
by the usual Republican majority the ma
jority of the fall, and not of the spring.
It would be a poor compliment and a
worse favor to nominate a man who will
be quite sure, or even likely, to be beaten.
There are three or four men named who
would have no opposition, except from the
Democrats. There are as many others,
the selection of either of whom would
bring out a third candidate, to aid the
Democrats in beating him. We do not need
to particularize. Intelligent men, who are
careful observers, and have good memories,
will know from which class to select the
winning candidate, and which he is.
And it will be understood that much
more caution and care must be taken in
selecting candidates ia the spring than in
the fall, as we shall not have the active
co-operation of a general canvass to as
sist ug in our local election. A good,
clean, complete Republican victory in
April would give us an impulse that
would be felt in October.
We hope that our Springfield Republi
cans will look beyond the supposed inter
ests of individuals to the promotion of the
interests of the general public, as jvell as
to those of the Republican party of Ohio
and of the country.
There is a newspaper called the Detroit
Plain-Dealer, which is published in the in
terests of the colored race. We find in
this paper a communication from Cincin
nati in reference to the candidacy of Judge
Foraker that bears upon the attitude of the
colored voters toward him; and, as we
have no animus about the matter except
to give the facts, we present what the Cin
cinnati gentleman has to say, as follows:
Cixcixnati, January 13, 1835.
It is a eiga of a healthy condition of po
litical effort to see the newspapers discussing
at this remote date the merits and demerits ot
candidates for tbe various prominent affairs
in the spring and fall election. There is a
fourth, fifth or sixth rate lawyer in Sprine
field, Ohio, trying to make himself notorious
by opposing the candidacy of Judge Foraker,
ot this city. But those colored men in this
city, as well as in -other parts ot the state,
who are opposing Judge Foraker, may be
adopting means by which they may pull
themselves into notoriety as kickers and
thereby obtain positions, but they are doing
little good foi the Republican cause in gen
eral. It is a very slight cause, a mere pre
ext, a veritable straw they grab at to weave
an excuse for opposing so able a man as Mr
Foraker. The circumstances ot the case are
so familiar as to be almost unworthy men
tioning. Judge Foraker was a paid attor
ney in the Gazzaway case, and with that
true instinct to duty, that loyalty that
so characterizes him as a Republican
and therefore our race's true friend, he
iii all in his power to interpret the-law in
his client's favor. It in his defense he sum
moned those laws to his aid that were
enacted in consequence of the past prejudices
to our race, don't blame him tor it. Blame
such men and the political organization that
made tbe law. Blame the Bourbon Demo
crat of to-day who asserts his amazement at
the easiness and lreedom in which the Negro
exercises the rights guaranteed Lim by tbe
constitution of the United States. Judge J.
B. Foraker is one of the ablest and foremost
Republicans in our state, pitriotic, loyal and
unselfish to a fault, as exhibited in his loyalty
to John Sherman at the Chicago convention;
as shown in his able campaign tor Mr. Blaine;
as can be observed in his unwillingness now
to be our gubernatorial standard-bearer un
less heartily supported by all wings of tbe
party. It is a mistake to presume that the
colored voters of Ohio would be so thort
sighted as to vote or work against such au
able man and devoted friend of our piny.
We warrant that if given an opportunity be
will do as much and more tor the Negro
than any other blatant, pretended friends.
So let tbe croakers stop their kicking and
unite, solidity, and organize tor accomplish
ing great things for Republicanism.
And, as so much of a confirmation ot
the above as the testimony of one Spring
field "Voter" can be supposed to be worth,
we add this communication:
SrBiNQFiELD, 0., January 17, 1885.
To tee EJItuwf tbeUlobe-Bepublic:
Having heard and read considerable about
the opposition to Judee Foraker by the col
ored votirs of fprinefield, I concluded to in
vest'gate the whole affair, and End that it
comes from a few colored politicians whose
influence and prestige the voters among the
race have long tired of. And I wish it un
derstood that tbe above class of gentlemen do
not ca3t their votes or speak their sentiments
when they say that, it Judge Foraker is nom
inated for Governor, tbe colored voters would
bolt in a mass from the grand eld party.

LOVE VS. FALSEHOOD.
"It is true. Helene. God knows I
would spare von the jiain, if in anyway,
with honor. 1 could do so. Child, your
father loved mo and left you to my care.
Can I seo you wronged, and stand si
lently by?" You come of a proud race,
and simple and gentle as I know you to
be. I know also the Carlcton prido lies
dormant within you."
Halbcrt Astor had spoken the truth,
and Helene Carlcton felt he had done
o. Sho was proud, not with arroganco
or hauteur, but with a sweet, grave,
womanly pride, a pride that lay buried
beneath an' almost childish simplicity
She was very lovely, this blue-eyed
girl, who stood listening with paling
face to tho story of her lover's falseness,
tho story told by this man who loved
her so madly himself.
Her thoughts strayed back now to

the day ho had pleaded as a man might
plead for life itself, and she had an

Sho raised ner eyes to nis iace now,
and ho felt his heart grow cold at the
look of pain in their shadowy depths.
Ah, Heaven, what would he not give
to be loved as Glendon Withers was
loved by this girl, whom out of all the
world his soulcoveted!
How lovely she was, with her wavy
pale-gold hair and lily-fair complexion,
tinted with rose-pink on tho softly
rounded cheeks, with her curving mouth
so ripe and red, her dimpled chin and
slender girlish form, her stately little
head set so gracefully on her rounded
She romembcrcd his love-story and

If ho loved her, ho would save her
pain it would rnako him more careful
of wounding her unnecessarily.
The story he told her was this: that
her lover her promised husband was
looked upon as tbo suitor of another.
Ho read her a quotation from a letter
in which Glendon was spofeen of. Per
fectly unwitting was the writer, how
ever, of the damage his idlo pen nould
He was stopping in tho same city
with Glendon, but not, however, in the
same house; fate had not favored him
so far, but had located Glendon in the
home of a girl as beautiful as ever was
And Glendon was infatuated her
smiles dazzled him. The light of her
eyes was his hcai en.
" At least, such was his friend's judg
ment on the effect of Leonetta's beauty
on Glendon Withers.
How near he w as right, how far he
was wrong, we ii ight decide ourehes
if we saw Leonetta Meredith and Glen
don together, but to do that ue must
cross the Chsmuel.for Glendon is abroad
in the gayest of all gay cities, the queen
of music uud mirth, the city of light and
laughter and eparkliug champagne
We cross tho water and see them to
gether, and what is our decision? We
can come to none.
Leonetta is beautiful, with a brilliant
dark beauty of the Spanish type.
Her forehead is low and broad, her
nose short and straight, her mouth
curved and dimpled; her eyes magnifi
cent, deep as ells, and dark as night
now slumbering in quiet dreamy
beauty, then flashing with passion or
glowing with delight.
She is about twenty certainly no
more; but her form has every curve and
grace of perfect womanhoo I.
But fate, prolific in all gifts where
beauty of face and form was concerned,
had not otherwise been kind to this
girl, with her passionate soul that longed
tor wealth and amusement, and the
homage her beauty would bring her
bad she been placed in a position worthy

a very narrow groove, and her soul re

Men are not very strong at best, and
Leonetta was more than passing fair,
and to a certain extent ho yielded to
tho pleasure of her dark and subtlo
Not, however, that ho was false to

dreamed of; but he would take the good

And then then, in tho very midst of
a more than fool's paradise, a letter
came from Helene.
He held it in his hand unopened for
a moment, a swift repentance for tho
moments ho had basked in the light of
Leonetta's eyes tilling his soul, along
with tho dec sion to tell tho dark-eyed
beauty of his engagement.
Alas! alas! ho had not that story to
tell her after the letter was opened,
for his face actually blanched when ho

Glendon Withers was a pretty good ex
ample of what a man mad for a mo
ment with pain and humiliation will do,
for what he did was this: asked Leon
etta Meredith to marry him, and cursed
himself an hour later for his folly.
But the die was cast. In honor ho
could not retreat, and one qui t day ho
made Leonetta his wife made her his
wife on the very day that Helene Carle
ton knelt below the low w iudov-sill of
her room, trying to decide would sho
believe her lover true or false.
I will trust him," she said softly;
"what is loe without faith?"
And so she trusted him; and at the
same moment his arms encircled anoth
er whose head lay on his bosom, and
who bore to him tho most sacred of ti
tles his wife.
Yes, Leonetta was his wife. She had
r- ached the crowning-point of her am
bition, and was she satisfied?
No most certainly. ,
A mad passionate love filled her
breast a lovo that refused her rest or
peace. A fiery flame that seemed to
consume her very being.
She realised the truth with clear dis
cerning eyes. She was an unloved
wife, neither more nor less, and the
thought was maddening.
She had dreamed that wealth, and
position, and gratified ambition would

For good or ill. for better or worse,
Leonetta was his wife.
One evening Leonetta strayed down
by a glade that lay below tho i'Otel to
which her husband had taken her.
Her beautiful face was unusually pale,
and she sat thoughtfully down on alow
"It is strange," she murmured half
aloud, "that this evening, in particular,
bis memory haunts me so persistently!"
Not strange, had sho known the
truth, for coming events oast their
Even then, down in the shrubbery
below where sho sat, a pairof dark fierce
eyes were watching her with an expres

"I will nwjiit mytime,"the man mur
mured; "in the height of her triumph I
will humble her in the dust."
A brilliant ballroom, the mirth at its
height, dancing and music, mirth and
laughter, the order of the uight.
The grounds around the mansion
ablaze as well, and nothing that money
could procure left lacking to add beau
ty to tho scene.
And one of the fairest maidons there
was blue-eyed Helene Carlcton. robed
in ivory-colored satin, her soft gold
curls clustcringaronnd her dainty head,
her soft white throat clasped with
creamy pearls, while a few priceless
ones clustered above her brow.
And below in the lower corridor.two
men faced each other, pale-faced and
stern, while the bride of one of them
impatiently awaited her husband's com

The men wore Glendon Withers and
Halbert Astor, and with pale set face
the former listened, while Holcno's
guardian told him what?
Simply this: That Helene know noth

A War-tlmo Incident.
The following good story on Rev. Dr.
Bartlett, of the New York Avenue Pres
byterian church, is printed here, says a
Washington dispatch to The Cincinnati
"Just about the close of the war.
when greenbacks were abundant and
entertainments in demanu at points
where lare numbers of troops were
stationed. Rot. Dr. Bartlett, wlio was
then lecturing, received a telegram
from someone at Cairo, 111., asking his
terms for a lecture. 'Five hundred
dollars and expenses.' answero 1 the
doctor, hoping to get rid of tho annoy
ance and danger of so long a trip.
Name your own time; terms satisfac
torv.' was quickly wired back. So in
duu season the doctor started to fill his
engagement. Ho was to speak on Fri
day evening, but owing to several acci
dents common in those days, ho did not
reach his destination till late Saturday
ni"ht. He was mot cordially wel
comed by tho chairman of the lecture
committee, whom he found to be tin en
terprising sutler. Apologizing for his
non-appearance, ho was told triat Mon
day night would do quite as well. His
host asked him if ho could notpreach a
sermon on Sunday evening. The doc
tor said he wonld'delivcr ono of his lec
tures on the 'Glory and Shame of Lan
guage,' appropriate to tho occasion. To
his astonishment he found Sunday
morning tnai no was auveniscu in au
extra bulletin to deliver his grandest
and most eloquent lecture that evening
at srJ per hckcl. no oxposiuiaieu, uu.
in vain. Ho was told that he must
keep his promise.
"Expecting to find a small audienco
at such a large tariff ho was surprised
with a crowded house, and four major
generals on a front seat. It was all
clear gain for the sutler, who had sold
tickets ahead for the regular lecture,
and used tho Sunday-night service to
take in the army of contractors.oiliccrs,
and others then thronging Cairo, who
tere willing to pay almost any prico
for an evening's entertainment.
"J hey treated me like a prince,"said
the doctor, "but I never preached Sun
day night before or since where tickets
of admission were paid for. The sutler
got ahead of me, and came out with
several hundred doll.-rs' profit."
In the rear of a small harness shop in
a rew Jersey village, mo oineruay.ino
proprietor was making a thumping
noise and raising a big dust by pound
ing with a whip-stock a heap of curly
black hair, which he bad taken out of
an old carriage cushion.
"What are you pounding that hair
for?" was asked when he stoppod to
get a breata and wipe the moisture
from his fori head with a red cotton
"It is not hair," said the man.
"What is it then?"
"A mixture of marsh grass, moss,
and cocoanut fiber. Good imitation,
though, isn't it? You seo, hair is a
first-class articlo for stuffing mattress
es, cushions, etc., but it is expensive.
It is clipped from the tails and manes
of horses, dead and alive, from the tails
of cattle, from the bellies of hogs, and
from the human head. It is twisted in
to ropes to make it kinky, and when
the kink is set it is used to stuff tho
cushion. It costs a lot of money, even
when freely mixed with short hair.
Most people prefer a genuine hair cush
ion at 60 ctnts, to a genuine hair cush
ion at $5. So tho manufacturers ac
commodated them with this mixture.
Sometimes fine split whale-bono is put
in the mixture, and sometimes, though
not often, it is diluted a little with hair.
The stuff costs from $20 to $25 a ton.
It packs with use, but the cover of the
cheap cushion wears out about as soon.
We can mako a new cover and then use
the old filling over again by whipping
it with a slender whip to liven it up.
There is no money in such stuff for any

Senator Garland's Speech.
Augustus H. Garland was born In
Tennessee in 1832. His looks are not
strikingly impressive. His frame tall,
well built, compact, surmounted with a
well-rounded head; bushy black hair;
face clean shaven; his mouth firm set,
but pleasant, solemn one moment and
twitching the next with some nascent
drollery; brown eyes, small, frank and
piercing; kindly withal, but changing
rapidly from earnest to quizzical; in
movement, easy and self-possessed; in
debate, clear, cool, fair, driving directly
by strong logic to the end in view. The
senate does not contain a more uni
versal stndcnt or a more restless wag.
A guilty conscience keeps him always
on tho lookout for some terrible retalia
tion, and it is a red-letter day in the
senate when this biter is bit.
On ono occasion, when an important
measure was before the senate, Mr.
1 Garland delivered a careful and ex
haustive speech, to which close atten
tion was given. About ten minutes af
ter he had finished, and, metaphorical
ly speaking, "his brow bound with
victorious wreaths," Don Cameron
went over to the Arkansas Senator's
side of the chamber and said:
"Garland, when are you going to
speak on this question? I want to near
"Good Lord!" remarked the surprised
senator; "why I just got through. Where
About five minutes later Mr. W'hyte,
of Maryland, who had not been in tho
senate during the speech, had the job
put up on him, and asked tho same
question in good faith.
"Why, I just finished. Whyte, con
sult the Record in the morning."
Another five minutes passed, and
then Butler, of South Carolina, another
sleepless wag, went meekly up to Gar
land and asked him when he was going
to speak to the bill. Considering the
source of this last inquiry, the remark
was in the nature of an eye-opener,
and Mr. Garland tartly replied:
"If you have any more ot 'em, But
ler, bring them on in a body; it saves
time. Washington 1'ost.
A Hamilton (Cal.) paper says a
Chinaman has devoted the whole sum
mer and fall to gathering horned toads,
which are very numerous on the Red
Hills, and are as much dreaded as
rattlesnakes. Recently ho made a
shipment of 2,000 of tho toads to San
Francisco, from which place they will
be sent to China. The toads are con
verted into various kinds of medicines,
which sell very high. For tho cure of
chills and fever they are said to bo the
finest things known. A toad is placed
in a flask of whisky for several weeks,
tnd then the stuff is sold as a tonic.
Experiments have recently btfeu made
by the French Government with a new
kind of siejje gun of prodigious power.
It is described as made of steel and
nearly thirty feet long, and the tube is
strengthened with ten coils of plated
tccl wire one millimeter, or .03a inch
in diamctor. The weight of this gun
s fifty tons, and it projects a shell
weighing -'97 pounds, capable of pene
trating armor plates nearly six inches
thick at a range of seven and one-hall
