SELECTION OF THE CENSUS FOBOE.
It is understood that Mr. Eugene Lew
is, or noiine, is willing to accept the
democratic nomination for state's attor
ney, and if nominated will make a vie-
orous campaign. Mr. Lewis is an able
lawyer and a gentleman well and favors
ably known throughout the counlv.

Wherlral lat l.ie.
The New Tork Evening W, republi
can, after carefully studying and analyz
ing the Rhode Island vote, is convinced
that the late election brings that state
clearly within the democratic column.
The amendment giving the ballot to nat
uralized citizens added 9,000 to the vote
of the stale. The result in Rhode Island
depended upon what proportion of these
new voters were democrats. It would
seem from the returns that the democrats
got 8.000 and the republicans only 1.000,
showing a net democratic gain of 7,000,
The republican majority has exceeded
7,000 only since Grant's first election in
19 2, and then thaoks to democratic
apathy. Again, the democratic vote at
the late election 21,185 is greater than
tb republicans ever cast before, with one
single exception. The Pout is satisfied
that Rhode Island is, from this time for
ward, in the democratic column, unless it
is bought by boodle. To save it the re
publicans will have to use a corruption
fund, as they have done elsewhere; but
if left to itself and uninfluenced by
money, it will be reliably democratic.
such is the view of a leading independ

for position in the census bureau waa made
public yesterday. The first letter is one
dated "Mastachusetts Civil Service Reform

Hon. Robert P. Porter, superintendent of

Dear Sir: To any one hot acquainted with
the wel lent results that can be attained by

doubt the cxpwlicncy of putting the census

dui the Kind or ability needed, suin as accu
racy, power to compute, etc., can be tested
only by trial, and the conietitiva examina

the exact work to be performed, such aa In

the like. As experience la far better than

Furthermore, it is my intention to institute

Fremont, O., June 36. The wife of ex
President Hayes breathed her last at 6:30 a.
m. yesterday. A change for the worse was
observed at 8 p. m. Monday, and it was
plain to the physicians that her sands of life
were rapidly running
out She grew weaker
as tbe night advanced,
and finally, at the hour
noted, with her loved
ones surrounding her
without a struggle.
There were few
women who h eld
and deserved the re
spect and love of as
MRl haves. large a circle of ac
quaintances as Mrs. Hayes, and her loss is
relt as a personal bereavement to nearlv
every resident of this city. As an expres
sion of tbe reverence in which she was heliL
as soon as her death was announced flags all
over the city were hoisted at half-mast, and
from far and near telegrams of condolence
are continually pouring in. Among the first
received were those from President Harri
son and Mrs. Harrison. But none can feel
her loss with the d.-rth of those of her im
mediate family.and Gen. Hayes and his sons,
wno anew ner virtues with tbe intimacy of
borne, are deeply affected, while Fannie,
the daughter, is nearly prostrated.
Of Revolutionary Stock.
The Webbs, Mrs. Hayes' family, were
originally from Connecticut, coming west iu
iioi, anu ner grandfather and great-grand
fathers were all soldiers of tbe revolution.

isii She was born at Chillicothe, O., Aug.
8, 1831, so that she was nearly 58 years old
at her death. She was married to Ruther-
rord Is. Hayes Dec. 13, 1854
Her Service During the War.
At tbe breaking out of the rebellion her
husband and both of her brothers immedi
ately entered the army, and from that time
until the close of the war her borne was a
refuge for wounded, sick and furloughed
soiuiers, going to or returning from the

her husband in Virginia, and after the battle
of South Mountain, where he was badly

Her Stand for Temperance.
1 he one thing that caused tbe most talk
about her was the stand she took on the tempar-
anoa quest ion, one was most earnest in her
temperance views and was determined that
wines and liquor should not be served at her
table, in this respect the greatest difficulty
she had to meet was the serving of wine at
diplomatic dinners. It was hard to make its
absence on these occasions appropriate, but
she was equal to the task. When the time
arrived for a diplomatic dinner, instead of
tbe small assemblage of decorated diplomates
in the state dining-room she struck urjon the
idea of a large reception. She knew that it
would be very difficult indeed to conduct the
usual diplomatic dinner successfully without
wine wnen au tbe diplomates would expect
