The Union has made a discrimina
tion as among the candidates whose
announcements are made in its col
umns for collector, and is out flat
footed for llillier to the disregard of
all others. As Hillier's notice is
longer than the others, there is prob
ably more in it for the Union. This
is the explanation, doubtless.
The Union begs to suggest Maj. H.
C. Connelly, Maj. L. M. Buford, ex
Aid. W. C. Maucker and Aid. Robert
Kuschmann "as a varied assortment
of material suitable for the making
of a candidate for mayor." Good!
Delighted to know that the Union
has raised its political ideas so nobly
since the recent unpleasantness. Evi

Capt. Edward vox Scusiidt, who
is in charge of the government
dredging ef the Oakland, Cal., ship
canal, has gone practically naked in
all climes for the last 20 years.
'The doctors told me," he explains,
that I had weak lungs, and when I
went to sea my friends said I would
never come back. Well, down in the
tropics I naturally wore but very lit
tle, and the less I wore the better 1
felt, and when I put on more cloth
ing again I didn't feel so well. A
year later, in bringing a vessel
through the Straits of Magellan. I
noticed the Terra del Fuegans going
naked in the snow. I saw old men,
stalwart and rngged, and mothers
nursing their babies, all naked and
all quick in action and sturdy of
limb, and I said I have found the se
cret of health. Ever since I have
dressed about as those rugged na
tives of that bleak country dress."
Col. William K. Morrison-, in an
interview, uttered words of encour
agement to democrats when he said:
Why, sir, the democratic party is
just as much alive as ever. They
can't kill it. It was born in eternal
truth, founded upon the bedrock of
the people's liberties and the true
principles of honest and economical
government. It has buried in obliv
ion many political parties, and will
live to see the grass grow on many
yet nnborn. The democratic party
lives because it is the only genuine
and sincere national party that the
country has ever known; that is to
say, in its broad principles are em
bodied the will of the people. I
mean the common people, and not
this latter dav olifrarchr of Dlutocrats
that have already and further pur
pose to enrich themselves through
legislation. It is true that the skies
at present lower upon the democratic
horizon, but during these SO years
we have seen them still blacker and
more forbidding. It is needless to
go into a discussion of what brought
this condition of affairs, farther than
to say that the democrats inherited
the disasters from a republican ad
ministration, ana trie people, imp;
tient for promised relief from repub
lican misiegtsiation. wrautiuiiy leu

had time to leaven the load which
burdened them. Republicans need
not cajole themselves with the idea
that in 1896 the democracy will not

JUDAISM AND HYGIENE.
Tat If oaale Law Baa Ghea the) Hebrew
Baee Vlffor autd Hardihood. -
It ia indeed not a little singular that
Christianity, in taking from Judaism
its highest spiritual conception, should
so have slighted the wonderful body of
hygienic science which the Mosaic law
embodies. The explanation, however,
probably is that Christianity undertook
to deal with the matters supernatural,
while Judaism, whether ancient or mod
em, is concerned only with mundane af
fairs. As Lncien Wolf admits, Judaism
is really a sort of positivism. Its aim
is the attainment of happiness in this
world, whereas Christianity is chiefly
concerned about happiness in the world
to come. But precisely because Judaism
agrees with Herbert Spencer, in relegat
ing supernatural speculation to the
realm of the unknowable, the intensity
of its worldly philosophy is the greater.
The wisdom and energy of the Jews,
in fact, have been centered for years
upon the re-enforcement and protection
of all their natural forces. And thus it
is that they anticipated tbo riper results
cf sanitary science, while still the bang
ing gardens of Babylon were a world's
wonder, and while, from the temple of
Belns, Chaldean priests charted the
heavens and calculated the occultations
of the stars. This ilesaio law, so de
spised of the gentiles, has given to the
Hebrew race that vigor and hardihood
which have brought it ssfely again and
again through persecutions that must
have rooted oat weaker people, and to
day, when tha foremost savants of the
nineteenth century are painfully search
ing out the genesis of disease and labo
riously devising remedies, tbo immuni
ty of the Jews in the midst of pestilence
once more indicates the reason of their
survival and emphasizes the triumph of
their sanitary system.
No other raco has been willing to ac
cept such a discipline, and no other race,
therefore, exhibits similar vitality and
exemption from epidemic diseases. Mod
ern teachers of hygiene insist always
upon the observance of system in these
matters, and they have reason, fur the
Hebrew race is a pregnant example of
the power of hygienic and dietary laws,
applied with unremitting vigor from
generation to generation. Minneapolis

A gentleman whose summer home is

Chinamen Going to Cuba.
