Where ther wa..y ;,ibIt i inth
poor newspaper men the most is
the counterfeit $1,000 bill which
has recently appeared. When one
of us gets three or four of them in
his weeks wages, it really cripples
him a good deal-makes him wear
his old hat and smoke cheap ci
gars for a while. It is earnestly
to be hoped, for our sakes, that
rile crusade against manufacturers
of the "queer," which has this
week resulted in breaking up a
Brooklyn gang, will finally capture
the fellow who is victimizing no
with those notes.
Another prosecution which is
1igo.rously being pushed by. the
polce just now is that of the poi
Iwy men and dealers in lottery
t:ekets. The war upon this class,
which is very large, has been car
ried on without much result for
several years, the lottery men hav
ing as a rule plenty of money to
bribe and pay tines, but this year
has been so hard on them that
their treasuries are scarcely equal I
to the demands for hush money,
etc., and so they are really being !
broken up'o a great extent. It
will be long before this variety of
gaimbling can be permanently
eradicated. The systems of "draw
I1.s,'' "distributions," "gift con
cert'" and the like are too attrac
tive to the lazy and avaricious to
be put down altogether, and the
fact that thef are always more or
loss fraudulent doesn't seem to
lessun their power over weak
minisr in the least. It is some
thing, however, for the city author
ities to, get the upper hand of these
ru:l.st-ir, even if only for a short
The Louisiana Commission.
!Fromi tite Ncw York ti-rald.]
We do not change our opinion
t'iat the idea of this commission is
at best a haarmle*s whimsey. Un
d'ar Lo cirsunstances could it do I
I.nty good, but its negative cowm
position encour.ages the belief that
it can do no harm. The really
controlling consideration in rela
tion to Lou'isiana is the loss of the
.ruly appropriation bill, which ne
iessitates an extra session of Con
'recs. If the President should
recognize Packard the call of the
,.xtra m.tsbu will be in vain. In
the new Congress the Democrats
.ill st:i, control the House, and'if
aillthing may be deemed certain
respecting its action at the extra
session it is certain that the army
hill cannot pass if the President
recognizes Packard. No intelli
gent roan in Louisiana or out of
l,ousiana Lelieves that the Pack
:trd Government could stand a day
without the support of Federal
troops. The certainty that the
iresident will have no troops to
tise for that purpose or any pur
posets if he recognizes Packard
decides the Louisiana question in
advance. Whatever the Louisiana
ommuission .may do or fail to do,
it is certain that Nicholls will
maintain his position as Governor
tf t he State, be:ause it is certain
!lat Congress will not give the
President any troops to oust him.
The force of circumstances and
iogic of events will oompel the
l'resident either to recognize
Nicholls or submit to a humilia
I tion; and it is incredible that he
will pursue a course which will
deprive him of an army for any
Wub o,,t an army the President
e;p powerless to maintain Packard
in his seat, and that the Demo
,'ratic majority in Congress
I will refu'e appropriations for the
,rmy if it is to be used against
tiem in Louisiana there is, as we
s.id before, of course, scarcely any
doubt. Without money there can ;
I ie n,, arry large enough to spare i
troops for duty in the Pelican
:'tat, mnd without troops Pack-I
rd's authority as Governor is at
:n endl. With these facts before
:is it is dificult to see what real
good the new commission can ac
-omplish. If they decide for
'Packard and Congress refuses to
appropriate money for the army,
Packard will be turned out by!
Nicholls. If the commissioners
decide for Nicholls thenr will bei
rno need for troops, and Congress
will not care to cripple the army.
Therefore, Congress holds the

rival sewing machine companies and

and the machines and the parts could no

that the business of manufacturing the
machines has oNLY been changed, and
that the supply will be larger, and better,
and the sale of these Celebrated Ma
chines more ligorously pushed than
ever before. The popplarity of the
GROVER & BUAIEIlt Machines is hard
to overcome, and it is only by such
