history of the country, probably, women
acted as clerks and judges of elections.
They served in this capacity at the
municipal elections in several Kansas
So pak as the sheriff office went in
New York city, the corruption More
the recent explosion was as bad as in the
worst days of Tweedism. But there is
one thing that public thieves can rely on
as surely as death. Stealing, like every
other evil, carries the seed of its own
ruin, When the thieves feci securest,
just then, dead sure, comes the earth
quake, ,At the same time that Knglish syndi
cates are buying the great breweries and
the Kentucky distilleries, temperance
work in this country, certainly, was
never more active. In Irelund, too, it is
proceeding aggressively. A new tem
perance crusade there hus begun under
the auspices of the Catholic clergy. A
circular letter intended to promote the
cause, and signed by Archbishop Walsh
and others, hus been read in all the
churches of Ireland. '
Indications ahk that the young em
peror of Germany will lie as despotic as
Frederick the Great. Already no ,one
dares sieak an opinion adverse to his
for feur ol his displeasure. No one of the
political parties in Germany is strong
enough to hold the balance of power
alone, and so the young erticror has
things mostly his own way. Hut sooner
or Inter accumulated truth bursts like
a storm all at once Hpon the hends ol
autocrats who refuse to heur it in the
Tub most sensitive conscience in Amer
ica has just been brought to light. The
United States treasurer nt Washington
has received $1.18, which the sender
wrote was principal and interest of a
sum ol money taken from the mint in
Philadelphia in 1HK0. After ull, the sen
der has not discharged his obligation to
the government. Evidently he took one
dollar, on which he calculates interest at
6 kt cent. He has not coniounded the
unpaid interest, and he has not counted
in the quarter yeur of 1800. He is short
in his accounts with the government one
cent, seven mills nnd a hnlf.
It is the misfortune ol some people
that they conceive it to be a newspnier's
duty to be always criticising and picking
flaws. If a newspnicr should fol
low this mistaken idea it would come
to be regarded as little better than a
public scold. Persistent running down
and belittling of a town and its ieoplr
is harmful, in that it gives outsiders a
M)or impression of the place and tend
to foster a lack of sclf-res)ect among its
citizens. How long would a business
concern prosper' if each member of the
firm went about declaring that his part
ners were ignorant and unreliable and
were driving away trade? The town or
city that enjoys a healthy growth, pros
icrity, contentment nnd happiness at
tains it by everybody taking hold with n
will nnd talking for the place they live in
as well as working for it.
TiiK most remarkable and distinctly
primitive white men to be found within
the borders of the United States to-day

The politics of many of these mountain
men so fur as they can decide it them
selves, is epiite as vague and uncertain ns
the tenets of their religious belief ; but ns
a class they did not remain in doubt
when the war broke out. Andrew Jack
son, a splendid type of their own nice,
was nnd is their politicnl saint, nnd like
him they came to look with an idolatrous
love on the flag of the Union. To them
the war did not involvethe right of seces

the Ireetlom ol the slave, for which thev
enred less; it wns simply a struggle be-

Samuel J. Randall has occupied a sent in
congress ns a representative from the
State of I'ennsvlvnnin. And not only in
length of service, but in distinguished
ability, his career has been notable.
During the greater part of this time he
has held without dispute the position of
leader of his pnrty in the house, in which
his force of character and his exceptional
parliamentary knowledge and skill ren
dcrcd him ieculinrly successful. When
occupying the Sinker's chair, his fair
ness, as well as his firmness, made him
rcsiiected by ull parties. Mr. Rnndnll
held a peculiar position in congress, un
like that of any other member. He was
the unanimous choice of the voters of his
district nt the Inst election there wns
no opposing candidate and only 112
scattering votes were cast against him
and although a life-long and earnest
democrat he wns retained in office by
republican suprt. This peculiarity, of
course. Itasbeen due to the devotion with
which Mr. Randall sustained the Penn
sylvania, idea in economic legislation;
and for the same reason he tins been
more or less in disaccord with his pnrty,

HILLIARD'S THEORY ABOUT
The Little Property Entailed
The Woman Had Money About
Her Deputy Jones PronilaeH
"It was the money supposed to be on
her person, and not the property that
would fall to those interested that caused
That wits the remark of Coroner Hil
linrd yesterday, upon being asked bis
theory of the murder of Harriet Williams
which occurred Saturduy night.
"The property," he continued, "wns
entailed, and did not belong wholly to
Harriet. In case of her death, there
would be six heirs, as near as I can find
out, who would claim a share of the
property. Then the land is not very val
uable, and I suppose is worth no more
thun $100 an acre, or $300 lor the entire
tract. Taking this into consideration it
would not seem to be of any grent benefit
to unyone of the heir as far as the pro
crty is concerned,
"I think this is the whole secret of the
murder,"suid the coroner, ns he produced
a bag or pocket made of bed ticking. "I
found this tied around her body beneath
her underclothes, nnd it wns torn and
bloody ns you see it now. See those
bloody finger prints."
The bug wns about tune inches long
and six broud. There was a rent run
ning from one end to the other, nnd
bloody markscould lie seen, showing how
the bag was grasicd to tear it open.
While Dr. Milliard hud the bag in his
hnncl he felt something in one corner, and
upon renching in found a rabbit's foot
wrapicd up in a piece of cloth.
'The murdered woman had given out
to her neighbors," he continued, "that
she possessed a bank account, but ns no
account can be found in town I think she
must have done this in order to keep any
one from suspecting her of having any
money about the house. She wns known
to be a hardworking, thrifty woman, nnd
I have no doubt but that she had saved
$100 or $125 from her wages, which she
carefully concealed on her person. Slie
tried to keep this n secret, but evidently
some one had found w here she kept this
money and committed the crime to ob
tain possession of it.
Another thing wns that this was
probably the lust Saturday night she
would siend it her home for scleral
months. She wns coming to town the
following Monday to go to work for a
family here for the summer. As to the
guilt of the mini now under arrest, I
think he could not have been thcoucwho
did the work."
Deputy Sheriff Jones, who has the rase
in rbargc, refused to tttlk when seen but
promised some startling developments
when the coroner's jurv met on Satur
day. As he has Ix-cn instrumental in
lioth of the arrests it is only natural to
suppose that his promised startling de
velopments relate to the susiectcd par
ties. For the Criminal Court.
