Tub New Orleans Picayune says, "the only
way to punish bad Indians is to turn the cav
alry loose and make a march beyond the
reach of professional philanthropists."
The Light acknowledges the receipt of
press compliments from J. M. Wright, Gen
eral Manager of the Soulhern Exposition, to
be inaugurated at Louisville, Ky., on the 1st
Mr.C. HassoN, a very learned member of
the Academy of Sciences, of Paris, has found
a new horror. Other scientists have found
death lurkinc in various meats and drinks
which we use, but Mr. Hasson warns us
against the use of salt and vinegar.
Till Galveston Print rises to remark tha
Galveston as a summer resort takes the cake,
and the truth of this remark is beginning lo
be realized. Her beach and her surf bathing
are the finest In the world, and the climate 83
delightful as is to be found anywhere.
IT is said that New Orleans has a deeper
harbor than New Yotk, and that the White
Stai and Guion lines dare not load their ves
sels above 26 feet, while the French line stops
at J4 feet. At New Orleans vessels drawing
26 feet of water have no difficulty or delay in
getting to sea.
The Washington Critic says : "Those
newspapers that have been worrying over the
fact that Major Wasson is a West Pointer
should overhaul their files far enough to learn
that he resigned from the army and spent
several years in civil life. Perhaps it was his
experience in civil life that led him to attach
an undue Importance to a bobtail flush.
Since Peter McGeoch, the gentleman who
attempted to run a corner in Isrd, and got
squeezed out dry at Chicago, has offered to
se'tle at 50 cents on the dollar, his friends in
Milwaukee have been vicing with one another
'in recounting his good deeds. One of them
said: "Old Pete's good deeds have never
been made public When the Bay View Glass
Works were struggling, he went to the mana
ger with $10,000 to float the concern, saying
he didn't want any Milwaukee institution to
go down. He has carried a number of mer
cantile establishments oyer a pinch. He has
helped struggling dealers to tide over a
panic when he knew they were on the right
IN VIEW of the many conflicting reports re
garding the statements and movements of
candidates of both parties, the Cincinnati
Times-Star makes a valuable suggestion in
the following : "So much confusion and
hard feeling have resulted from reports of in
terviews lately, in which the interviewed
claimed to be misrepresented, that it might
be well to have a public interviewer ap
pointed by ihe State, whose reports could be
taken as official, and behind which no man
could no. Mr. Tilden, Governor Foster,
Judge Iloadly, Governor Hendricks, Senator
Vorhees and Senator McDonald, or their
friends, have had about all they wanted to do
this summer in explaliing what they were xe-
ported to have siid in alleged interviews or In
denying that they had been interviewed at nil.
In this way arises a question of veracity be
tween the interviewer and the interviewed,
which is very perplexing to the public, and
which might be avoided by the appointment
of the official suggested, whose statements
would be held as authentic."
THIS TKLHGltAIMIKIW HTItlKIC.
The strike inaugurated by the telegraph
operators yestrrday throughout the United
States Is one of far more serious import than
the average reader is aware of and will for a
short time, at least, involve and completely
block the commercial businefs of the country,
and stop In a great measure, a large percent
age ol the travel. It is a most gigantic
movement and is greater in extent than the
famous strike of 1870, or the strike of the
railroad men in the summer of 1878, and the
Importance of the strike is fully Illustrated In
the canard about the death of General Grant,
which was also the signal that precipitated
the .iiovement, and shows plainly that they
were aware of the power at their hands. There
are about 18,000 telegraph operators
In the United States and Canada, and of
this number, it is authoritatively stated that
more than 11,000 of them are active members
of the Knights of Labor. About 3000 are
also pledged to co-operate with the organized
force in any and alt movements to better their
condition instituted by that order. The situa
tion is more than serious, and whether it will
result in bettering the condition of the opera
tors now in the movement is an open ques
tion. Hut there is no denying the fact that
they have some cause for the grievances com
plained of, and the public at large will sympa
thize with them in their efforts to secure bet
ter wages and more uniformity as to hours of
work, and if these wealthy corporations wish
to win public favor they will make
some concessions, if not all, asked
of them, and settle the question
at once. Strikes are necessary once in awhile,
and the laboring men all over the country will
be slow to Join hands with the powerful cor
porations against the strikers,and they will find
support and sympathy and an earnest hope
from the masses that their demands may be
The telegraph companies claim to be able
to manage the movement without acceding to
the terms demanded, but the columns of ihe
morning papers show that their words are not
true, and that though they may have filled
the vacant places with amateurs, yet they
were unable to transact the business of even
The following is the text of the declaration
of the general convention as It applies to the
commercial telegraph companies in distinction
to railroad work :
Uelieving that man's relicious and moral
welfare require that at least one day in seven
be accorded him for rest and recreation., we
demaud the total abolition of Sunday work as
a compulsory duty, unless compensated as ex
2. That eight hours shall constitute a regu
lar day's work and seven hours a reeular
night's work ; but when circumstances make
the application of this law impracticable, work
ing hours shall be regulated by local assem
blies. Both sexes shall receive equal pay for
3. That a universal increase of i ner cent.
oa salaries now paid be demanded.
4. That the Executive Hoard of District
Assembly No. 45 shall use their discretion in
presenting the above demands upon all com-1
mercial corporations in the United States,
provided they be made between the Uth dav
of June and the 15th day of August next, and
mat tne executive zioaru shall give at least
two weeks notice to every local assembly in
District 45 as to the exact time when these de
mands will be made.
5. That corporations npon whom these de
mands shall be made, as above nrovided for.
shall be required to make answer to the same
wilhin 48 hours.
6. That in case the telegraph companies
upon whom these demands are made do not
accede thereto within the time specified the
District Executive Hoard shall order a gen
eral suspension of business il they deem it ad
visable, and that they shall have fulljiower
to conduct any arbitration appertaining
7. Should any company, corporation or
firm accede to the term of the bill or griev
ances, or should a conference, arbitration or
compromise result satisfactorily, in the judg
ment of the District Executive Board, mem
bers of the District employr d by such com
pany, corporation or firm may be allowed to
woik, regardless of the refusal of other com
panies, corporations or firms to accede to said
bill of grievances; provided it shall appear to
the satisfaction of the District Hoard that such
action will not prejudice the inteiests of mem
bers employed by other companies, corpora
tions or firms which have failed to accede to
said bill of Grievances as aforesaid.
8. That the above complete the bill of
grievances and demands as far as it applies to
q. Linemen's interests : That cirdit hours
shall constitute a day's work, and that com
pensation at the rate of two day's pay shall be
allowed for all Sunday work. That the low
est salary paid a regular lineman shall lie $65
per month, and for help $50 per month, and
that duties ol linemen shall be confined solely
to their legitimate work.
10. Railroad operators' interests : That no
operator shall be paid less than $30 per
11. That an increase of $10 per month
shall be added to the salaries now na'd.
12. That all operators reauired to work on
Sunday shall be allowed an extra day's pay

John Kneupser, a German, residing on the
Little Ulanco, has been placed under $2000
bond for murder of M. Schullz last month.
A negro, and a white man named Nicholas,
are also under arrest charged with being Im
plicated In the murder. Schultz was found
under a bluff dead, and was buried on a ver
dict by the Coroner's jury that he had fallen
off of the high bluff and killed himself. Af
terwards the body was disinterred and an
other inquest held, when It was discovered
that Schultz had been stabbed five times.
Circumstances that followed led to the arrest.
The affair will be thoroughly sifted and the
Coroner's jury Is still at work.
The Invnaloii of the North'.
From tho Now York Journal.
The Southern military organizations now
visiting the North are carrying by storm every
point on the march. Hartlord has fallen be
fore the Charleston Light Infantry. The flag
flies over the State canitol and the armories.
The Continental Guards, of New Orleans,
have taken Providence in Rhode Island. All
this is nlcasnnt readme. It is not improbable.
however, that the reporters have failed to de
scribe the most interesting conquests that
have been made. The young ladies of New
bncland are, in spite ol their traditional devo
tion to pork and beans, attractive to the fiery
Southern eye. How many prisoners they
have made among these Southern warriors
the merry wedding bells will probably tell us
in the lall.
An income tax is the fairest that can be im
posed, for the reason that It can never tax a
person unjustly. A person may be assessed
for property which really makes him poorer
than ne would lie witnout it. Aiiouseowner
is taxed, when with mortgages, repairs, loss
of rent and insurance the assessed properly
may be a cost to him instead of a profit. Hut
if a man has an income of $10,000 it is there
and he enjoys It, and can afford to pay a tax
on it. European governments know that an
income tax is more acceptable to the people
than any other, and that it is more cheerfully
paid anjl less burdensome than any other sys
tem of taxation yet devised.
