TUESDAY, MAY 80, 1883.
Tub New York Evening Post claims
to be out of debt. Votake it to be serious.
Mark Twain Bays there is something fas
cinating about science. One gets such whole
some returns ( conjecture out of such a
trifling investment of fact.
It is complained in New York that those
who sign, calls for temperance meetings do
not attend themselves. Not so with the
boys ; they are usually on hand.
Mr. Pulitzer, of the new New York
World, is relied upon to dismember faction
and put the Democratic party through, as a
party, in the coming scramble.
Senator Mahone jugged a colored waiter
upon the charge of stealing $50 from him.
He had no grounds, and pretended to none,
excepting the popular notion that every col
ored man in humble life is a born thief. The
boss will want steadying soon if he is still to
run the State of Virginia.
While the farmers of California are har
vesting wheat the farmers of the Northwest
are putting it in the ground, Meantime the
papers are figuring on the crop, and if they
are a hundred millions of bushels or so
wrong, it is pat down to " shortage," if on
that side, and hurts neither the farmers or the
Land frauds are discovered without much
difficulty in almost every part of the newly
settled regions of the West. The Interior
Department has decided that several of the
land thieves of Colorado, who fraudulently
pre-empted land for the purpose of forming
a large ranche to be used by a wealthy cittl.
drover, must be prosecuted. The land office
had abundant information about the work of
the laid robbers In Colorado mors than one
year ago. Why these proceedings which are
to affect only one small group of the thieves,
were not begun at an earlier day does not ap
pear. The Irish party in America talk of ignor
ing the Pope's circular in respect to the Irith
question; threaten to boycot him, and declare
that it will have no effect upon the people of
Ireland, This is either empty bravado or
deplorable ignorance. Those who are ac
quainted with Ireland and her people know
well that the Pope has no firmer or more
bigoted adherents than the Irish people. The
very character of his office, which is the key'
stone of the religion they believe and prac
tice, makes the denunciation of the rebellion
of the utmost importance, and it will hate
the effect of depriving the Land League and
other kindred societies of its best friends.
The influence is rightly- used, for persistence
in an open rebellious course, with the dyna
mite adjunct, can never accomplish any per
manent good for Erin.
Till! A U'S COUONATION.
We have repeatedly said that there is noth
ing like the stomach as a foundation for
grand occasions. If we are going to make a
celebration let us give it the quality of festiv-
ity, the skill and elements of gastronomy, the
art and science of good eating. What arc
grand ceremonies in parks, what street par
ades, the liuily fa.tdango, the crowded pro-
cessions, military plume, and official regalia,
when there is no stomach at the bottom of it?
It is never to be neglected nor forgotten that
hunger is perpetual and remittent, that men
are always prepared to eat and drink. It is
a mistake to suppose that mind is not
in harmony with these principles.
The mind lays itself out mostly on appetite.
We may assign the mental factor to a partic
ular hemisphere, but he operates at will, and
usually manifests at the base of the brain.
The great success of the Czar on Sunday in
achelving the coronation, therefore, and
starting life at an Emperor, is strictly accord
ing to nstural principles. Appetite in which
slumber the horrible rite and fearful orgic of
disorder, has been placated. It gave Itself
submissively into the keeping of royalty, and
never was wolf more docile or the elements
of discord more quieted into rest. These are
reflections that will climb into permanence in
the royal mind, and we believe his Majesty
Alexander III. will be a wiser and better
monarch for the good will he has propitiated
and the dangers he hts escaped. Asa trium
phal civic demonstration it was as successful
as could be desired, and nothing is necessary
at the hands of the Emperor but to open
his new set of books on the system which,
as Czar, he has so much cause to approve.
When we look with our sober senses all in
their places at the vision of theC rown, we
read in it an admonition which the Emperor
may not safely disregard. He simply bowed
to his subjects with the respectful homage of
a sovereign. But in doing this he
recognized the popular existence of
a power he fears and dares not defy.
This is not Nihilism. It was not Nihilism
that gave the potentate imperial sway in
Moscow Sunday. Nihilism would have broken
from its secret places and destroyed Jiim if it
could. It was that mighty gathering of the
conservative forces of a people that were
mustered by means oi the agensies he used
and bore him triumphantly out of the reach of
the Nihilists and wrapt him safely in the con
summation he sought. The Emperor crowned
and throned will recognize this power. It
does not exist in Moscow only, but through
out the Empire.
No radical society can maintain itself
against a conservative element of so much
strength if the two antagonize. If the Emperor
can awaken, as he may, the sympathies
of the people by continuing to
propitiate the natural stomach on
more secure base he will bring him
self Into alliance with the conservatives who
eat ana drink. If he does not they will
eventually ally themselves with the socialistic
element and destroy the imperial government
and the dynasty of its sovereigns. It would
be a curious matter of research to forecast the
Nihilistic future. It has lost nothing, none
of its life and vigor, its energies and its pur
poses remain, it is not disconcerted by any
arts or discouraged by any reverses. If the
attitude of the imperial majesty displays no
new significance it will resume its office.
What Russia wants is a constitutional govern
ment, a government of law and order, an end
of despotism, of imperialism, of the one man
power. Beyond lie a representative govern
ment, a republic; she will have one or the
nilly West Bets Mnslied on Fay Temple
tou uud Marries ller,
Billy West, of Thatcher, Primrose & West's
miostrels, has been united in matrimony with
Miss Fay Templeton, well-known as a comic
opera singer. Billy was clean gone on Fay,
and when he saw her reclining on the breast
of Pippo, singing the " Gobble, Gobble"
duet, it made him wild to play Pippo in pri
vate. An introduction to the sprightly little
lady was secured and an invitation to attend
the minstrel performance was tendered and
accepted. Of course, Billy dressed for the
occasion with extra neatness and fairly outdid
himself in his song and dance. Fay looked
with admiring eyes upon the fascinating out
lines of her Romeo and applauded his gentle,
graceful gyrations on heel and toe. The soft
and mellow notes from his larynx stole into
her heart and a mutual mash, first-class in
every particular, resulted, followed by a
honeymoon of the electric light order. Billy's
St. Louis friends wish he may never enter a
divorce court. Billy has certainly got a mas
