their lives they purpose to vote the Republi
can ticket. They explain why the Celtic-
Americans can't "stand Cleveland;" why the
"Irish vote will be given to Blame;" why the
independent movement is a failure, and why
it is that all Democratic ratification meetings
are attended only by small boys. All this
indicates activity on the part of the Republi
can editors, but it all falls flat on the public.
There Is general apathy in every direction.
No one outside of the professional politi
cans seem to feel that the country is in dan
ger. No one appears to care about "Ral
lying;" nobody has the appearance of being
bowed in shame and humilitation over the
Republican reports of Cleveland's incontin
encei Even the Mulligan letters do not
shake the continent like an earthquake. The
fact that the Independents do or do not ad
here to their promises, has no effect on the
rising or the settiug of the sun, or the pulse
of the public.
A part of this condition of things can be
ascribed to the intense'heat which is pre
vailing throughout the country, and a part
to the fact that the public ear has become so
accustomed to the prevalent species of cam
p?ign talk that it wearies of it as of a twice
told tale. "Why cannot we have a rest from
this old, old, worn out method of conducting
a political canvass? Can't somebody kill
this persistent old fraud, "An Old Demo
crat," who turns up at every election in the
Republican pacers, and for the first time in
his life, after having for forty years voted
the Democratic ticket, is determined to cast
his ballot for the staunch candidate of the
Republican party? Is there no way to dis
pose of the nuisance, the "Old Soldier," and
that perennial swindle, "A Workingman?"
People would listen if there was anything
being said to them ; but they cannot be in
terested in rehearing precisely what they
have heard at every election in which they
have taken a part since they have became
voters. Let us ■ have something fresh. If
matters continue as they are, the public will
yawn itself to death before 1 the polls are
opened in November.

One of the marvels of this country was

such eccentric forces, and when he recovered
from brain fever, it was with impared rea
son, and with a pronounced aversion for his
former absorbing enthusiasm, and for its
votaries. Mental activity wisely directed,
like muscular exertions, keeps the : brain in
a healthy state. But the stimulated abnor
mal conditions of Paul Morphy's triumphs
made him a Bad example of the mischief of
such unwise excesses.
Sitting with bandaged eyes, and winning six
games out of seven was suicidal to the mind's
best vitality, and yet there was one singular
fact in his playing, that he never hesitated
over a move, but seemed to manage the
game with scarcely any reflection — almost
without marked consciousness one would
From the age of thirteen to twenty-one he
worked his marvelous feats of chess, and
then came nature's retaliation in a twilight
of the faculties until his forty-sixth year,
when his own imprudence in taking a cold
shower bath while greatly heated caused his
death. The world passes to other wonders
with unabated zest, and Miss Lulu Hurst,
called the "Georgia Wonder," is the last
phenomenon in this mysterious half com
prehended domain of natural forces beyond
i.ur definitions and ken. tin exchange
gives the following concise account of one of
these exhibitions as follows:
There was a large assemblage in Wallack's
theatre on Tuesday, attracted by curiosity to see
Mis.s Lulu Hurst, "the Georgia wonder," whose
feats ol titrungth are explained by magnetism and
various other theories, which are easy to advance
uiul h:ird to prove. Miss Hurst, who is said to
be but sixteen years old, is a very tall and well
formed county girl, with a pleasing, rosy face,
dark brown ringlets, and unaffected manners.
Upon her appearance with her manager, she was
joined on the stage by a number of men from Vbe
audience, Including some who are well known to
the public. A Eerie* of surprising performances
foils wed. When one of the men held an open
umbrella above his head, grasping the stick with
both hands, Miss Hurst would lay her open hand
upon it, and the umbrella would apparently be
endowed with life. It would twitch and plunge
about violently, and the holder would be dragged
over tho staecriu his efforts to hold it still.
When v professional athlete of local note clutched
n billiard cue firmly with both hands, holding it
in front of him horizontally, Miss Hurst laid
Del pi'.lms open it, and tho cue becamo affected
like the umbrella, lt required a powerful exer
tion of the athlete's great strength to force one
end of the cue to tho tloor. When he held up a
common wooden chair with both hunds, und Mi*s
Hurst touched it lightly, he was unable to hold
tho chnir still, nnd found it no easy task to set lt
down on the stage. Men of less strength than
the athlete were whirled about tho Btage ieno
minionely while stru^iilinn to hold the objects
which Miss Hurst touched, aud in several in
ttancn the men were thrown to the floor. In one
case four or five men together were uuable to
force a chair to the floor when ahe was touching
it with tine hand. When a heavy man sat iv the
chair, she placed her palms against the chair
posts, and both man and chair were propelled
forward a considerable distance, being lifted
completely off tho stage. All who took part iv
the u-jitu agreed that Miss Hurst possessed a
very reiuarkatle force of some kind, but no one
undertook to explain it.
THE CLEfELAMi SLAXDERS.
A number of Republican newspapers are
publishing the Buffalo scandal in regard to
Governor Cleveland, with great satisfaction,
cither proclaiming their belief in its accur
acy, or printing it in a guise intended to
promote belief. Thus they place themselves
on a level with the vile, characterless organ
of the Buffalo slums, the Telegraph, that orig
inates the scandal. According to the old
maxim, "the partaker is as bad as the thief,"
and the circulators of the scandal EU.nd on

Mr. Cleveland received 5,000 majority for
mayor in the Republican city of Buffalo. He
received a few years ago 15,000 majority in
the county of Erie for sheriff, and has dis
ccarged the duties of every official position
in which he has been placed in such a man
ner as to reccire popular approbation.

overreach their mark. None but a citizen of
the highest character could enjoy such per

community where he has lived and borne bis

view alone fully answers the unspeakably ir

hate'and political animosity.
Republican journals might find better em
ployment than publishing such monstrous
and malicio&s fabrications. They cannot
thus damage Mr. Cleveland and injure bis
political prospects, any more than did the
scandal mongers of 1828 injure and damage

scandals and their self apparent falsity, it is

There is no particular surprise to see that
a vile and venal evening sheet of St. Paul is
incapable of occupying the honorable place

A GRAVE MATTER.
When the Buffalo Evening Telegraph came
out with its shameful story of Gov. Cleve
land's gross immoralities, the Journal took
no stock in it. We supposed it was simply
the effort of a senatlonal sheet to "raise
hades and sell newspapers," or the custom
ary installment of campaign defamation
which is to be looked for from political or
gans of the baser sort. And even now, al
though tliese charges are taken up, reiterated
and expatiated upon by a paper of such high
pretensions to purity as the Minneapolis
Tribune, and although they are vouched for
by a Baptist clergyman of Buffalo, we do not
feel like crediting them, or like giving the
salacious details the publicity of ourcolumns.
The clergyman in question, the
Rev. Geo. H. Ball, whoever, he is,
affirms that Grover Cleveland has the reputa
tion in Buffalo of the grossest licentiousness,
and he repeats, with names and dates, the
Chronicle's story of how Cleveland wronged,
betrayed and deserted a working girl at Buf
falo. We don't know Ball — we don't know
anybody else who knows him. We are op
posing Gov. Cleveland for tho presidency,
but we are frank to say that the word of an
unknown clergyman should not be taken to
fasten a ruinous charge upon a man of pub
lic reputation who has been honored by his
neighbors with the highest trust. We do know
a citizen of Minneaj/ofLs who wa» brought up in
the same neighborhood with Mr. Cleveland, who
h< is known him intimately from boyhood, and
who pronounces the liev. Mr. Ball a vile slan
It is sometimes a perplexing question how
far the private character of a candidate for
public office is a subject for legimate discus
sion. The safest rule is to let his private
character alone, and to determine his fitness
by his public record. Of course crime should
be puuiahed In high places as well as iow,
and if we believed Grover Cleveland guilty
of what is alleged against him we should say
he ought to be in the penitentiary
instead of passing as a candidate
for the highest office in the
people's gift. But is it likely that if Mr.
Cleveland was such a man as the salacious
Tribune publication represents him, he would
have so long escaped exposure, occupying as
he has done for years, so prominent a posi
tion in the public eye? It ia monstrous, in
credible, and we refuse to believe it even of

A Specimen Irish- Republican.
To the Editor of the Globe.
"If I saw un Irishman voting the Democratic
ticket I would feel like shooting his heart out!
1) — n the Irish:"'
These were the identical words which
greeted the ears of the writer while passing
along Wabashaw street, in front of the West
Publishing house, last eveninsr shortly before
7 o'clock. Coming, as they did, from the
lips of a respectable looking person, an
Irishman as I took him to be, in conversa
tion with a well known and prominent citi
zen of St. Paul, I was somewhat taken j
back to say the least. The emphasis with
which "D—n the Irish" was uttered made
me wonder in my innocence of the extent to
which political venom permeates some
natures, what, under the sun, j
or the reign of Republicanism, could cause ■,
such an outburst of hearty, whole-souled vi
tuperation against a nationality to which the
speaker himself belonged. Can it be that
he is "•struck" on Jim Biaine and his super
human (?) efforts in aid of Iri3b-American
prisoners in English "stone jugs" while be j
was secretary of state? Is it possible that
he can honestly, and urithout any seifish ob
ject, give his support and countenance to a
I person who is ashamed to own the religion j
which his mother practiced so devoutly and j
taught him so earnestly, simply because he j
thought it stood in the waj of his advance- ,
ment toward power and emolument in a free |
nation, where a Protestant stands no bighe j
under the constitution than a Papist, and !
where an Irishman is as good as any nation- ■
allty under God's heaven J Such a man has
surely been dazzled by the supposed thundrooa >
eagle screams which our whilom first officer
of state is credited with having sent booming
over old ocean to the lair of the British Bon,
but which that lordly beast seemed not to )
j hear, eremwith the wind in the right quar
i ter. Not anyone but a would be traitor to
the interests of bU race, or a paltry seeker
j after some ••snide" office, can with truth
and proof say that the Republican party and
Mr. Mulligan Blame are the proper
component parts of the dose
which would be best suited to the
interests of the Milesian exile race and their
descendants iv this "land of the free and
home of the brave." The loud-mouthed
blasphemer of Erin's sons, whose blatant
effusion heads this article, even if he be an
Irishman, might easily find a better occupa
tion on the blessed Sabbath day than that of
casting the stigma of his notice and the vi
tuperatlou and blasphemy of his foul mouth
upon a rucc against which even their worst
enemies have never been able to record
aught which would entitle them to take the
prerogative of the Almighty in their own
hands and sond forth the edict; "D — n the
Irish." J. J. R.
The Capel School System.
To the Editor of the Glooe.
In your yesterday's issue you do me the
honor to devote, a leader to certain state
ments made by me a few days ago at the
Teachers' National convention at Madison.
From the tone of your article I realize that
you wish to be fair. But as you mistake the
Catholic position, it is clear, justice is not
given us, and I therefore venture to tres
pass on your space. The grave importance
of the question at is3uo will I trust justify
The public school system of America may
without the least exaggeration ' claim to be
equal if not superior to that of all the coun
tries of Europe, so far as buildings, furni
ture, books, material, and methods of im
parting instruction are concerned.
But the public school system of America
professes to undertake only the physical aud
intellectual training of children. This seems
to satisfy a larg* proportion of the people of
the United States. But many others do not,
aud can not accept such a system as in any
sense sufficient. Among these are more es
They assert man is to be trained to be a
good citizen of earth, and a good citizen of
heaven. Consequently say they to merely
train a man's body and his intellect, excel
lently as aro these, they do not constitute
the education of the wiiole man. Over and
above these must be the culture of a man's
will or heart to fit him to be truthful, honest,
pure, charitable, laborious, courteous, aud a
supporter of the ills of life.
To complete this three things are neces
sary: The first, careful, systematic, relig
ious Instruction ; the second, the use of God's
appointed means (sacraments aud prayer)
for forming the virtuous man; and third,
the continued repetition of acts of goodness
to destroy moral weakness and set up habits
of virtue. This U what is called moral ed
ucation; for which Catholics, and right
minded men of all nations are contending
as a necessary element in the education of
Lord Salisbury, the' leader of the Conser
vatives, in England, a Protestant himself,
very lately said when presiding at
the meeting of the National Educa
tional society, of England, "distinctive
religious teaching is essential to the educa
tion of the young. That is a principle which
at one time it would nothave been necessary
to en force, but In these days with apparent
and powerful opponents against our efforts,
we must maintain It unflinchingly and carry
it forward until we bear it to victory. There
is scarcely any subject which so deeply
moves populations or which presents so for
midable a problem 1 for governments to solve
as the question of religious education. * , *
It Is an essential part of ; education, that re
ligion in Its entirety, religion as a matter of
dogma, as well as a matter of morals
should be taught to the young."
These words of the veteran statesman, a
Protestant, do but express what Catholics are
insisting on. As far as the ■ public schools
go, they are good; '.but they afford no sound
moral training for the children of those who
labor from morning till night. * Those who
are content with such a truncated education
will still use the public , system. Those who
are not, will build schools and introduce re
ligious moral training. '•
It is but just that if in this second cate
gory of schools, which are daily incraasine,
the physical and intellectual instruction be
on a par with that given in the public schools,
then in common justice should such schools
receive a quota of the taxes "levied for educa
tional purposes. Thus, while liberty of in
struction would be second, peace and har
mony would be upheld among citizens, and
by a system of examination, the state, could
be assured of the solidity of the education
given. . .
Many evidences might be adduced to show
non-Catholics do not repose entire confidence
in the public school system. I mention one
only. There is not a convent in the United
States wherein non-Catholic girls are not to
be found; sometimes they form . a large pro
portion of the scholars. Parents place them
there for this very moral education. •
You will see' then, I am not contending
that the Catholic religion should be taught iv
the public schools, but that Catholic schools,
and schools of religious .denominations,
which give the same standard of instruction
as the public schools should be recognized
by the state and . receive the same assistance.
I am Sir, your obedient servant, . $

. THE GREELY RELIEF.
A Description of the Expedition by
i: Commander' W. R. Chambers.
New Yoßtf,'July 27.— The following de
tails from the lag of the steamship Loch
Garry, of the GreeJy relief expedition, are
furnished by W. R. Chambers, who was in
command of the vessel during its cruise to
the polar regions:
On our first day out from St. Johns a heavy
fog set in and we encountered • a large ice
berg. In steering out of its way we lost sight
of the Thetis and f could only resume our
position' by the sound of her whistles.
May 18th. When off Cape Farewell we
met the first great quantity of ice v and were
obliged to go ahead slowly. ' • . : .
May 22d. We sighted Disco but had
much difficulty in finding the harbor. The
island was covered with ice and snow, and
land marks were invisible. - v';
-% We left Godhaven May 24, at 9 a. in., and
steamed through the ice along the coast to a
point about ten miles below Hare island.
Here we found the ice 60 thick we were com
. pelled to lay to. Lieut. Schley signalled for
mo. to go back to Godhaven and : wait for a
favorable opportunity with an cast wind to
nrrw.o.wl kn T",,,>v, n,-llr
proceed to Lperuavlk.
We left Godhaven the second time on May
27, and encountered more ice, through
which we pushed our way and found the
Thetis lying to at Hare Island, having been
unable to blast a passage through the ice.
The next morning the whalers, Artie and
Wolf, joined us and we started ahead. The
ice was heavy aud we experienced great dif
ficulty in making progress, and several
times narrowly escaped a collision
with the Wolf. We were afraid to back
very much, for our propeller was only a four
Waded east iron one, and hud we broken a
blade it would have boon all up with us. We
finally succeeded in gaining ahead, and the
Wolf followed in the opening we made. The
Thetis was now out of sight, aud we set our
course for Oomcuaek Fiord. Here we sighted
the Thetis ten miles ahead. We overhauled
the Thetis May 38, Capt. Schloy hailed us and
said, "Go to Upernavik, calling at Proven.
If you meet the Bear coal her with dispatch."
During a fog which came on we got into a
false load, and while returning to the open
water to try another we met the Thetis, and
proceeded together in the midst of a blind
ing snow storm, which lasted all night, to
Upernavik. On our arrival there, May 29,
we found the Banr, and coaled
her. The vessels remained in the vicinity
for nearly a week, when the Thetis and Bear
proceeded northward, while we waited for
Alert, which arrived June li. The governor
of Upernavik told us there was no hope of
getting through Melville bay, as the season
was unusually close. ■
We left with the Alert June 21, and
reached Barry island June 23. We went
ahead, pushing through ice all the way, and
on June 25 reached Horsehead. Here the
Alert got nipped in the ice, and in trying to
get her out we lost so much time that the
neck had become impenetrable.
We lay jammed in the ice off Duck island .
till June 19. We worked all the night of the
28th, blasting aud sawing ice, and finally
got away into open water.
June 30th we were off Wilcox-head, where :
we had more hard pushing to get to open
water beyond Devil's Thumb. While bus-f
here, we sighted the Thetis and Bear coming
towards us, aud knew ut once from her sig
nalling that the Qreely party had been
traced, and that the survivors, if any, were
on board, for Captain Schley would never
have come back without having accomplished
his work. We returned to the open waters,
and a thick fog set in, and it was some time
before I could go on board the Thetis and
Bear, and learn the news of the rescue. We
then pushed south with all the haste
possible, and arrived at Upernavik July 2d.
Capt. Schley there dispatched the Alert and
Lock Garry to Godhavcn, while the Thetis
and Bear put in to Upernavik, the former to
shift her broken rudder and tin: latter to get
coal. At Godhavcn the Alert's machinery
was repaired aud we buried there one of the
Esquimaux of Lt. Greek's party. We left
Godhavcn with the Alert" in tow. Off the
coast of Newfoundland we encountered a
gale and our steel barrier parted three times.
The Alert was Dually cast adrift July 15th.
We dropped anchor at St. Johns at 9 a. m.
on July 17th.

Elktox, Md., July 27.— Wm. G. Smith, of
the firm of Buttles <& Smith, contractors on
the Philadelphia extensi mof the Baltimore
& Ohio railroad, near Mechanic Valley, on
the Little Northeast creek, about four miles
from Elklon, came to this place to-day about
2 o'clock to consult the sheriff and state
attorney about a riotous demonstration of
Italian laborers, about twenty-five of whom
were employed by the linn. Mr. Smith said
the Italians had quit work, and demanded
the wages due them from the first of the
month to this date, which the
firm refused to pay. Mr. Smith stated that
about noon he started out in his carriage,
when be was stopped on the road by one of
the Italians, who seized the bridle of the
horse and threatened to kill him. Mr. Smith
drew his revolver atid made his escape., only
to be stopped again in a few moments by
two other Italians, from whom he alsc
escaped. Shortly after this the whole body of
Italians gave chase to Smith, who, tiring
v parting shot, made tb2 best
of bis way to Elkton. A few
moments after Smith had told his story news
came here that the Italians had killed Robert
Battles, the other member of the firm. The
sheriff summoned a posse and went to the
spot where they found Battles in a house
where he had taken refuge from the rioters.
They had made an attack upon him and bed
wrestled his gun from him and would un
doubtedly have killed him if assistance had
not arrived in time. The ring leaders in ihe
riot were arrested and brougtit to this place.
