The Commercial- QazetW war on the
six republican senators who voted to re-.
iect Murat Halstead's nomination prom
ises to keep matters lively in the republi
can camp for some time to come. What
ever else may be said of Halatead be is a
bard fighter, and the republican senators
who have incurred bis everlasting hatred
will probably have reason to wish they
had never been born, before he has done
Tbe Comma cial-Qatette thus catalogues
these six republican leaders:
One f Plumb 1, a "robber in earner me,
by tbe formal report of a board of army
officers, indorsed by tbe unanimous re
port of a republican committee or tbe
bouse of representatives, now a senator
of tbe United States from Kansas.
Another Walls, also from the same
state of Kansas, and president pro tem
pore of tbe senate of tbe United States,
whose election was attended by fraud and
bribery, according to the report of six of
nine members of a senate committee, who,
however, said further that the evidence
did not show that this senator personally
participated in it, or had personal knowl
edge of it.
Another IFarwein, against whom it
has been repeatedly alleged that his seat
in tbe sec ate was secured exactly as Mr.
Payne's was, namely, by the purchase of
the caucus which nominated him.
Another Teller, who bad "been only
two days in tbe senate after bis term of
service in the interior department closed
before a resolution of inquiry was intro
duced for the purpose of exposing the
part which be bad played in one of tbe
most extensive land frauds of recent
Another Evarts, who in a published
card had declared to tbe public that he
was not connected with the notorious
Credit Mobilier, and who, a few weeks
later, was reported by a committee of bis
own political friends to have been inter
ested, as charged .
Another Quay, who was a part of all
the inside operations of the republican
rings which in days past have fattened
on Philadelphia. His course in this case
is as yet a mystery; but no one can fail
to see that Mr. Payne and his allies would
naturally turn with hope in his direction.
There is no reason to doubt that Mr.
Halatead is telling tbe truth about these
senators, although we cannot recall that
Mr. Evarts, who never served in con
gress before bis present term as senator,
was implicated in tbe Credit Mobilier
scandal. It seems to us, however, that
if Mr. Halstead has known all this time
that Plumb was a "robber," Ingalls a
"boodler," Farwell a corruptioni-t, TeU
lera land grabber and Quay a jobber, be
owes it to the public to explain why be
kept his mouth shut. He should not have
waited for these rascals to tread on his
toes before be exposed the them to the
country. But, according to the old ad -age,
when a certain kind of men fall out,
a certain other kind of men. get their
dues. It is being strikingly verified in
this business of Halstead and the repub

Tbe wanderer upon the streets finds
many kinds of sidewalk material prin
cipally p ank, muck brick, a little good
stone material. Plank are expensive bv
reason of decay unwholesome, and to
be put aside as fast as possible. Up to
1376 the crossings were of wood in all
parts af tbe city, but from a resolution
Introduced in the council in tbe spring of
that year $1,000 was devoted to good
stone crossings, and since that time tbe
improvement has been kept up. Ant
otner resolution looking to doing away
with wood sidewalks within certain fixed
limits is now in order something needs
Stone pavements for sidewalks are
rather too expensive just now in the
nature of a luxury, but always welcome
and to be encouraged. Bricks make good
walks tbe world over, but there are
bricks and bricks, good, bad and good
for nothing for sidewalks. Those who
have given the matter attention know
that first class sidewalk brick of tbe usual
shape and size are good for 80 years
There may be none in sight that have
been tramped upon so long, but there are
walks that have been on Main street 20
years without any repairing, and tbe
brick to all appearance seem to be almost
as good as new.
Tbe observer will notice if he is
skilled in brick affairs, that the
square scratched brick that have
come into use within tbe past year or
two, are full of promise for good service,
In appearance tbey are ratber better than
tbe ordinary brick, and seem to be made
of material that improves upon tbe com
mon kind. These should be largely fa
vored. Thev should last half a century.
They are easy to remove in case some
trenches must be dug. and will doubtless
stand the wear and tear of climate better
than the concrete asphalt pavement. At
all events such has been tbe experience
So, at any rate let the council, if it has
such power, make a move toward doing
away with the ordinary plank walks in
the mere busy parts of 4 he city, and or
dain something better.
The Rock Island council has already
adopted an ordinance providing for new
sidewalks of substantial material 'within
the fire limits.
In Town and Hamlet
The -seeds of intermittent and bilious re
mittent fever germinate and bear evil
fruit. No community has altogether es
caped it. In populous wards of large
cities bad sewage causes it, and in their
suburbs stagnant pools in sunken lots
breed it. There is at once a rem
edy and a means of prevention. Its
name is Hosteller's Stomsch Bit
ters, which is, without preadven
tnre, the most potent antidote in exis
tence to the malarial virus. Fortified
with this incomparable, saving specific,
miasmatic Influences may be encountered
with absolute impunity. Disorders of
tbe stomach, liver and bowels, begotten
by miasma-tainted water, or any other
cause, succumb to the beneficent correc
tive named, and rheumatic, kidney and
bladder troubles are surely removable by
its use when it is given a persistent trial.
Tbe Japanese experiment of employ
ing French and German army officers
simultaneously has worked badly. The
two races clash, and trouble has arisen.
A Oreat Surprise
Is in store for all who use Kemp's
Balsam for the throat and lungs, tbe

JOHN DE:"OY AND PATRICK EGAN.
la Vapleaaa otnea t men, Results In Some
New Yob k, , April 10. At a meeting of
tbe municipal cjuni-il, Irish National league,
lant night, Jubu Djvoy 8ii imitted his ver
sion of "a -Cf Btroversy' with Patrick Egan.
The Evening Telegram of Wednesday last
pnblisbed art aahingtoa special stating that
in an interview Egan' had charged Devoy
with inspiring an attack upon the genuine
ness of a c ible dispatch describing Egan's
lervicea in unmasking Pigott, and had called
Devoy a tra tor. Dcvoy telegraphed Egan
tbatunletw the stateim-nu were repudiated
he would Ik Id Egan personally responsible,
and take at! is to vindicate his character.
Dispatches w.re also sent to the president
and secretary of state, complaining of Egan's
conduct, and regretting tbe scandal that
must c ome f nm it
Egan replied that he bad not given any in
terview abou i Devoy to the paper, but he had
no hesitation in expressing his belief that De
voy was the i.uthor of the untruthful attack
upon him. 1 evoy rejoined that Egan's ut
terances, not his opinions, were in question,
and demand? 1 a public denial of, or apology
for, the use of the word "traitor. Egan re
plied that whatever his private opinion might
be, he bad I ot used the word referred to.
If Devoy the ught he could exact anything
further be c lid go to law. Further corre
spondence was declined.
Devoy responded that be had solicited no
correspondent To decline it was therefore
an impertinence. He had demanded public
contradiction of a foul slander. As Kiran bad
in the "sneafc ng and cowardly way that char
acterised him," insinuated tbe same slander
before, tbeni was reason to believe that he
was correct report ed. Egan's first letter
was a "shuffling evasion; his second was a
self-evident lie, and conveyed an insult in a
form no one but a cur would -select. Egan
dared not publicly contradict the report, lest
be be proved a liar. To this Kgan has not
Devoy threatens to rake up Egan's charac
ter and make things unpleasant for tbe ad
ministration generally unless a public apol
ogy is mada He introduced a resolution
that whereas charges of treachery had been
made, purpoi ting to come from prominent
members of tje league, and were calculated
to create dit trust and suspicion; resolved,
that the interests of the cause demand an in
vestigation, and that we ask that a commit
tee, whose character ahull be a guarantee of
impartiality, be appointed by Parnell to in
vestigate the iharges and the condition ol
tne National league in America generally;
and in our heiief the judgment of such a
committee would be accepted by tbe whole
Irish race, and would place the national
movement in a better position than it has
ever occupiel before.
Devoy, J. I'. Ryan and R. J. Kennedy
supported the resolution, and it was adopted
unanimously. Copies will be sent to Parnell
and to President Fitzgerald.
J jstiee Gray's Toast.
A few day ago, while crowds of hungry
people were streaming into tbe restaurant of
the United Sates senate, soon after noon, a
number of patrons of the place were aston
ished to bear a waiter calling out in an im
perative torn, of voice: "Bread for Justice
Gray's toast!" The order was odd enough to
justify passing curiosity. A moment after
it bad been sl.outed over tbe counter by the
waiter, Mr. Page, the manager of the place,
rushed behind tbe lunch laden shelf, stooped
to find a pantry, and then bent over a task
that could not be delegated to an appren
tice. From a very nice loaf of bread
he cut fotr or five slices, each as
thin as a very thin wafer. These were laid
carefully upo a a platter and shot down th.
dumb waiter to tbe cook shop below, while
Mr. Page explained to a curious patron that
Justice Gray would not hate his toast any
thicker than he had cut It, and that be was
so critical that he could tell at once if any
body except the proprietor had cut It. The
big justice hi is the largest man of the
whole benct does not lunch on toast
alone. He is a very good feeder, but he is
quite as fastk lous about everything else that
he eats as be is about the bread that is to be
browned to go with his cup of tea. The

Eiba bad married a handsome man. She

friends told her be was a flirt and gave her a
full account of what be had said to them and
how they could have had him if they wanted,
but they wou d not think of confiding the
happiness of their lives to such a flirt. She
was perversa and they were wedded. A few
months elapatd, and she came to visit one of
her prophet fi lends one day. "And are you
happy f" the friend asked. 'No, I'm not"
Well, dear, I'm sure I warned you, but I do
hope you won't get a divorce." "Well, I
dont know. If this goes on" "Now,
dont be foolth. Men are always a little in
consistent, yon know, and the best husband
will go off and leave his wife occasionally and
not explain" " Explain 1 Go off and

Thai Tired Feeling
That extreme tired feeling which ts so dis
tressing and often so unaccountable In the
spring months, Is entirely overcome by Hood's
Sarsaparllla, which tones the whole body,
purifies the blood, cures scrofula and all
humors, cures dyspepsia, creates an appetite,
rouses the torpid liver, braces up the nerves,
aud clears the mind. We solicit a comparison
of Hood's Sarsaparllla with any other blood
purifier In the market for purity, economy,
strength, and medicinal merit.
Tired all the Time
"I had no appetite or strength, and felt
tired all the time. I attributed my condition
to scrofulous humor. 1 had tried several
kinds of medicine without benefit. But as
soon as I had taken half a bottle of Hood's
Sarsaparilla, my appetite wag restored, and
my stomach felt belter. I have now Liken
nearly three bottles, and I never was so well."

suiieriority. Take it before It is too late.
