At the lata flection 70.000 women

led the men by 8,000. Tber mostly

Tne new constitntion of New York
prohibits convict labor except the
employment of convicts on public
works or in-making material for use
la state institutions. This is a vie
tory for labor.
It is estimated that at least $300,
000.000 of the greenback notes have
been lost and destroyed, and will
never have to be redeemed after their
33 years of service. There was
scarcely ever a great fire that did not
lap up a few greenbacks. There were
millions of them lost in the great
Tiir. Modern Woodmen show signs
of restlessness and evince a disposi
tion to ignore the injunction which
holds their head camp at Fulton.
Suppose you mark that, Mr. Jour,
nal, and mail a copy of it to Hon. J.
W. White, who is a candidate for
speaker of the next Illinois house of
representatives. It was Mr. White's
statesmanship and broad-minded
ness that made the injunction, that the
Woodmen through the order's juris

I tbe American federation of Labor,
is a native of Ohio, the son of an
Kngllsh sailor who gave np the sea
and tookto coal mining in Msssillon.
When John McHride was 11 years
oin ne was carrying water in tbe
mines, but at 25 he had abandoned
manual labor and became a practical
politician and labor leader. His
present aire is 40. He found the
miners unorganized and incapable,
apparently, of concentration, and he
is tbe unchallenged author of the
present national body. It was his
creation and natnrallv, except dur
ing his frequent terms of office-hold
ing, be has been its bead.
The dictator of the republican
party in New York. Tom Piatt, sneers
at ";ood lr. Parknorst" and pro
test against his participation as an
advisory influence in state or city ad
ministration. He has no use now for
Parkhurst or the non-partisan organ.
Ixatlon in New York that were the
most efficient force in accomplishing
the overthrow of Tammany. Piatt's
Interest in reform ended with the de
feat of Tammany. He Is prepared to
organise a republican lammany
with himself as grand sachem.
Piatt's contemptuous treatment of
it. raranurst since tbe election is
very different from that accorded tbe
rreat municipal reform crusader bv
President Cleveland, who, in a letter
concerning the proposed Parkhurst
testimonial, said: "Jbe man wbom
you propose to honor is
grand citlaen and deserves all his
fellow-townsmen can do for him."
What AkNl awanf .
The withdrawal of Aid. Madden
from the race for the mavoraltv of
Chicago, assures Mr. Swift's nomina
tion. Mr. Madden Is shrewd and
forceful, hi friends are devoted to
him and it is entirely probable that
if he chooses to insist upon Mr
Swift as the republican candidate in
tne spring, ur. awut win oe nomi
nated by acclamation. Tbe mere dis
poses of the only powerful opposition
to the chief of tbe organization and
makes clear any road Mr. Madden
may choose to take. That he has an
object beyond the election of Mr.
Swift, it is impossible to doubt. Mr.
Madden has been the - leader of the
agitation to send Mr. Medill to the
United States senate. He said a few
weeks ago that tbe editor of tbe Chi
cago Tribune would be elected if
Cook county had any weight in the
caucus, but that tne result depended
noon Mr. Med ill's desire for the Dlace.
Should, however, Mr. Medill cease to
be a candidate, the other Chicago
aspirants now being out oi tbe way.
Mr. Madden would find an uninter
rupted passageway to the toga.
I TmsH llneeaa.
The conviction seems to be grow
inr that Illinois will furnish the next
democratic candidate for president
of the United states. It is generally
conceded that the nomination will
come to the west, aixf while Indiana
and other states wiJ undoubtedly
present the name of some favorite
son, the prospects are excellent for
Illinois to carry off the prise, in an
article on Illinois polities, the Waskv
Infton Star prints the following eon
cernlng the democratic nomination
"Rumblings are already heard of
both the Morrison and the Stevenson
Firesidenlial booms. The dispatch
rom Illinois the other day announc
ing that the friends of Col. Morrison
at home were already moving in his
behalf was read with interest in
Washington, and although pleasant
ly 'kissed off by Col. Morrison him
self when interrogated on the point,
is still the subject of much com
ment in political circled. Col. Mor
rison, though not' in political office
now, has a large number of friends
and admirers among the old line
democrats, and there are men of in
fluence on the list who earnestly de
sire his nomination for president and
are sounding sentiment on the sub.
"They concede Mr. Stevenson's
popularity and personal excellence,
but they stoutly bold that if the de
mocracy goes to Illinois for her na
tional standard bearer next time.
Col. Morrison should be selected.
His party leadership, they claim, an.
tedates that of Mr. Stevenson, and is
identified, they are fond of repeating.
witn tbe most thorough, though in.
effectual, efforts ever put forth by
the national democracy in con"-s
to revise tbe tariff on revenue i.u..
This record, they believe, would
prove of great value to the party in
the national contest approaching,
and coupled with Col. Morrison's
record as a soldier and citizen would
carry the day at the polls.
ibe iriends oi Mr. Stevenson, on
tbe other hand, are unable to see how
tbe vice president can be set aside
for anybody if the democratic nomi.
nation is to go west in lsye. They
do not confine their oo in pari sons to
Illinois, but, pointing to the whole
section on the other aide of the Alle
ghenies, declare that on every ac
count Mr. Stevenson is the strongest
democrat to be found there. He it
thought to be thoroughly represen
tative of the west, both on the tariff
and the money questions, and his
friends assert that he is not identified
in any way with any of the policies
oi tne administration upon which the
people passed adversely at the polls
last month. He is carrying himself
in his present office entirely to their
satisfaction, and they are noting at
all times tbe suiting and tbe mean,
ing of all currents of presidential
talk and maneuvering.
mere is not so lar, at least on the
surface, any ill feeling between the
Morrison and the Stevenson forces.
but the rivalry is growing daily, and
must become in time sharp and
spirited. If it escapes becoming
more than that it will be, it is
thoncrht. sol el v because of the ad
mirable and friendly poise of the two
NO CAUSE OF ACTION.
It's AU Blcht for One Maa to Mistake An
other for mm Alligator.
GKASD RAIMD3, Mich., Doc. 22 Justice
Thomas of Harris Croek. Alloxan cauntr,
has disposed of a case which ptvients at-v-
eral new and novel f natures. The p.irtie
to the suit ware Frank Statsic an J Carl
Johnson, both Swedes. Statsic has lived
In that neighborhood since early boyhood.
and as a child the story was told him that
an alligator haunted the lake near by
and that It was always hunting for some
thing to eat. The story was so nmny
times told him and never contradicted
that jh a man he believed It still. Last
June ho was returning home in the early
evening after dark and coming to
bridge saw something stretched upon It.
He thought of the alligator, shouted at
tbe object, and, falling to make a stir, he
found a fence rail, and, advancing, struck
at the object, knocking it off the bridge.
Tbs object proved to be Johnson, who had
fallen asleep while fishing for catfish, and
be awoke with a yell when struck, V ben
Statatc discovered his mistake he plunged
into the water and rescued his victim
from drowning. Johnson sustained
fractured skull, and Stateic was arrested
for murderous assault and acquitted,
Then Johnsan began suit for damages,
and Justice Thomas has decided for tbe
Butler Seen Oaee afore.
OBXWEIS, Ia., Dec. JB. Friends of Walt
Butler believe they have a trustworthy
clow as to his whereabout. . The peculiar
actions cf a man in an apparently de
mented condition were noticed by boys
playing near the outskirts of Hampton,
this state, and was reported by them to
some men working near by, who started
to Investigate.' The man fled at their ap
proach and has not since been seen, al
though searoh Is being liiadu. Those who
saw him say he bore a great resemblance
to the missing congressman, and the
boys, on being shown Butler's photo
graph, said: "That is the man."
Waaamaker aad the Beading.
New York, Deo. S3. John Wanamaker
has responded to the query from Henry
Clews as to whether he would consent to
act as president of the Reading railroad
by saying that he Is willing so to do as
soon as he la assured oi sumclent support.
Mr. Wanamaker says that- he is not now
largely Interested In Heading securities,
but he Is a firm believer in the properties.
He thinks the salvation of tha Beading
will come when tbe stockholders take a
mora active interest In Its affairs than
they have in the past.
