Garfield announces that the only way

the control of the ballot boxes exclusively
in the hands ot the political party in con

demonstrate that this is partisan control;
that it is not safe control; that it has in
this country proven dishonest control

These are the grand words that Han
cock uttered to Mrs. Surratt's counsel a few
moments before her execution: 'I Imvc

. 8oxi oi our contemporaries are complum

lav prescribing the manner of counting
ihe electoial vote. The electoral vote had
heon counted in the good old constitutional
way for about a hundred years up to 1877,
when a new plan wa triod, and the . result
was that a fraudulent president was seated
If future experiments aro to be no honcstcr

The Chicago Tribune snys that tho ship
mcnts of fresh meat to Europo during the
week ending July 10 were tho largest on
record for ono week, the number of live cat
tie alcyio being 8,005, of which 1,-483 head
wero shipped Friday on steamships that
sailed Saturday. The largest shipments on
record for any previous week wero for the
week ending Slay 31, the total number ot
live cattle being 3,717. The shipments of
last week included 3,905 head of cattle,
5,020 quarters of dressed beef, 1,153 head
of live 6hccp, 1,0S3 carcasses of mutton,
and 115 dressed hogs.
The Washington Gazette is entitled to
the credit of discovering a plan to raise a
Democratic campaign fund. It suggests
that each confederate soldier contribute five
dollars. It estimates the receipts from this
source at $1,500,000. It also suggests that
tho Doraocrats of tho north contribute $0,-
000,000, making in all a fund of $3,o00,000.
This, tho Gazette thinks, will be sufficient
to run the campaign. The Gazette forgets
that the federal offices are not in po.-scssion
of the confederate soldiers, and that the ma
jority of them haven't enjoyed sufficient
prosperity to justify them in submitting to
a tax of $5. They ore willing to do what
they can, but the Gazette will have to think
ot some other plan to raise campaign funds.
The breach between the Grant and the
Garfield factions of the Republican party
appears to be growing wider. Grant is
saying very pleasant things about General
Hancock to his old friends in the West,
while he has very little, if anything, to say
about General Garfield. Although he does
not complain he evidently feels sore over
his defeat at Chicago. Ot the senatorial
candidates which supported him only one
General Logan talks about taking an
active part in the campaign. Senator
Cameron is taking bis case at White Sul
phur Springs, m Virginia, and Senator
Conkling is thinking of taking a trip to
Europe. In the meantime the Grant men
are being everywhere unceremoniously
kicked our of office. Truly, the outlook
for an enthusiastic and harmonious cam
paign on the part of the Republicans is not
N. Y. Graphic.
Here's a touch ot orthodoxy that is res
pectfully commended to the consideration
of Col. Robert Ingersoll and his followers.
It will be seen at a glance that the Rev.
Mr. Furnise, a British clergyman, from one
of whose sermons it is extracted, is a warm
disciple of the Miltonic school of theology:
"We know how far it is to the middle of
the earth it is just 4,000 miles. So if
hell is in the middle of the earth, it is 4,000
miles to the horrible prison of hell. Down
in this place is a horrible noise. Listen to
the tremendous, the horrible uproar of mil
lions ana millions of tormented creatures,
mad with the fury of hell! Oh! the
screams of fear; the groans of horror, the
yells of rage, the cries of pain, the shouts of
agony, the shrieks of despair, from millions
ou millions! There you hear thcui roaring
like lions, hissing like serpents, howhui;
like dogs and gnashing of teeth and the
fearful blasphemies ot the devils. Above
all you hear the roar ot the thunder of
God's anger which shakes hell to its foun
dations. Uut there is another sound. There
is in hell a sound like that of many waters.
It is as if all the rivers and oceans of the
world were pouring themselves with a great
splash down on the floors of hell. Is it,
then, really the sound of waters? It is.
Are the oceans and rivers of the cirth pour
ing themselves into hell I No. What is it,
then? It is the sound of oceans of tears
running down millions of eyes. They cry
forever and ever. They cry because the
sulphurous smoke torments their eyes,
They cry because they are in darkness.
They cry because they have lost the beauti
ful heaven. They cry because the nharp
fire burns them, the roof is red hot. The
floor is like a thick heet of red-hot
iion. See, on the middle, of that
redhot iron floor stands a girl. She looks
to be about sixteen years ot ago, She has
neither shoes nor stockings on her feet.
The door of this room has never been open
ed Bincu she first set her foot on this red
hot floor. Now she sees the opening. She
rushes lorward. She has gone down upon
Iter knees upon tho redhot floor. Listeu !
She speaks. She says: "I have been
standing with my bare feet on this redhot
floor for years. Day and night my only
standing place hits been on this red
hot floor. Sleep never came on me for a
moment that I iniijht forget this horrible
burning floor. Look at my burned and
bleeding feet. Let me go off this burning
floor for one moment only for a short mo
ment. O ! that in this endless eternity of
years I might forget the pain only for one
single moment !' The devil answers her
question : -Do you ask for a moment for
one moment to forget your pain? No,
not for u single moment during the never
ending eternity of years t.hall you ever
leave this redhot floori' "

The Popularity of the Equitable Life Assurance Society
indicated by the fact that
nual New Business has been larger than that of any other
Company in the world, is due, in a great measure, to its well
known promptness in the payment of Death Claims, audits
rule never to take advantage of technicalities where an
equitable claim exists.
Asa GUARANTEE of this, and to counteract the perni
cious influence of a technical policy, adhered to by many
companies, the Equitable makes ALL ITS POLICIES, old and
