Poster the depopalator. remarks the
New York SUtr, baa a machine that dots
the work of computing the returns at tte
Washington office of the census bureau
The ease with which this machine counts
up the population in republican commun
ities and counts it down in democratic
chits is something wonderful. It has a
positive genius far work of that kind.
While tbT are about it the republican
conspirators might do worse for them
selves than to add this machine to the
fraud and force election bill. Judging
from i'.s record in the hands of Porter, it
would be able to count in a solid republic
can congress in a way that would make
Davenport, Reed and their subservient
allies aghast with envy.
The New Haven Rtgittrr, in cu&iid
ering some of the census figures, take
occasion to illustrate the rank iniustice
of the rotten -borough system of leg:sla
tive representation which prevails in Con
necticut. citing the factlhat the city of
New Haven, with its 83.000 people. Las
the same representation in the house as
the town of Prospect with 411. atd
Bridgeport with 45.000 the same as
Warren with 41". It is this rotten bor
ough system alone which keeps the re
publican party in control of the legisla
ture, and through that injust coctrol in
ures the representation, or rather the
misrepresentation, of a democratic state
by the republicans ia the United States
senate, and pats a republican, whom the
people have repudiated at the poll, in
the executive chair of the state. And yet
Senators Hawley and Piatt cf that state
are conn ted open to support the force
bill, which purports to be designed to
secure the just representation of the
southern people in congress.
ient aaa the Bark Pay Bill.
An anonymoas individual writing to
the Lniou from Washington, and signing
himself "Max," says he does so "for the
purpose of setting the employes of Rock
Island Arsenal right in regard to the
present status of the bill for their relief
ini.'oduced by Mr. Geet early in the sea
Anybody taking the trouble of wading
through the column of stuff written by
"Max" will arrive at the conclusion that
be is endeavoring to "set Mr. Gest right,''
inat.H rtf tit ftrunftl tnnlnTM The
gist of "Max's" apparently laborious
effort is that Speaker Reed has gagged
Mr. Geet with his arbitrary rules, and
were it not for the autocrat from Maine,
there would be some chance of the back
pay bill passing. Congressman Cannon
also comes in for censure.
Here is another humiliating admission
by Mr. Gesi's own friends of bis utter ins
capacity to properly discharge the duties
for which be was elected. If be bas any
influence at all it should be with these
very men of bis own political faith the
men who control the policy of the repub
lican party in congress. Bad and tyran
oical as be is, the A noes thinks it is
hardly right to charge Tom Reed with the
non-paaaacre of the back pay bill. This
excuse is too thin.
It comes with exceedingly poor grace,
too, for the friends of Mr. Gest to
criticize Tom Reed and bis methods.
When the democratic minority raised
their protest against the mendacious
and unconstitutional manner in which
their rigbu were being trampled up
on, wasn't Mr. Gest a willing co
operate in the unwarranted pro
cedure;? Did Gest oppose the arbitrary
rules proponed by the republican caucus
at Reed's dictation? No, moot assuredly.
He fell meekly into line at the crack of
the party whip, and interposed no objec
tion to the "one man power rule." Now
be whimpers like a whipped child, and
ays be could secure the passage of the
back pay bill If it were not for the rules
of the bouse,
No excuse at all for Gest's incompe
tency would have been better for that
gentleman than the one offered by
"Max." It is a frank acknowledgement
that Gest can be used as a tool to assist
in any audacious plan that the republi
can majority may wish to perpetrate, but
that on other occasions it ia impossible
for bim to secure "recognition from the

been fired down one flight, to irate

Mr. Reed then refers to the proposal of
the unknown writer to apply another rem
edy to the trouble of non-voting and says:
Iid It ever occur to the reader what a singu

Xew Yor.K, Aug. L RiAseli B. Harri

terday about the Cape M ly cottage, said
that when the parties risked Washington
City with the deed of the cottage the
president declined to aec pt the gift, but
told the would-be donors that as they bad
prepared tbe cottage for the family, he
would arrange for them lo go there, and
would determine later wlether to rent or
bay the cottage. Mrs. Harrison 'was so
pleased with the cottage ifter occupying
it that the president decidad to buy it and
Other Beal Estate Iwrchaaea.
Referring to the Echo Point real estate
purchases, Mr. Harrison said that the
land was bought as an investment. It
lies outside of the Distrie; of Columbia,
and could not be affected by any action
of congress or the District commissioners.
The property standing in Mrs. Harrison's
name is owned by her fatier, Dr. Scott.
He wished it deeded to her because of his

Loxuox. Ang. L The cable's report
that the United States postal authorities)
had excluded Tulooi's 'Kreutier Sonata"
from the mails is received here with ex
pressions of mingled astonishment and
ridicule A well-known literary man said
last night: 'In view of the nauseating and
psltry indecency of many American njr
els chiefly those of women write which
are coming over here every day, and which
are presumably allowed to circulate
through the American mails, one can
hardly credit this report that Tolstoi's re
markable though painful study has been
singled out for the rare condemnation of
the United States government. It will be
interesting to see what wiil follow. If
the Washington postal authorities have
constituted themselves censors of literary
morality they must not stop short with
ToUtoi. Who will be the next victim, or
perhaps it would be more correct to say
the next beueficiary, from an advertising
point of tiew. uf their fastidious judg

Tolstoi's judgment, we are not permitted
to doubt the exaltation of bis purpose in
writing tbe book. Eminent medical men
and morali-ta have agreed that the subject
matter of the book is one that demands
recognition, and that Tolstoi's treatment
of it, while not perhaps conclusive,
is justifiable on the ground that it is sci

AN "AMERICAN TRAGEDY.
ThreeMeo Shot to Iteath After a Bar
IMN, Ang. 1. A shocking triple
murder occurred at king-land in this city
Wednesday night, which all tbe London
papers characterize as "An American
Tragedy." A discharged soldier named
Hargao, alias Harper, quarreled with
William Lamls-rt and John Wheeler,
while sitting together in a bar-room. The
landlord ejected them. When outside
Hargan immediately drew a revolver and
shot both the men throngh the head.
They fell dead on the sidewalk The by
standers attempted to capture the mur
derer, who immediately i-hot again, kill
ing a tLird man.
Made It Very Interesting.
William Kmfton and a crowd attempted
to capture the murderer, but they grap
pled, and Knifton was shot and nearly
killed and Hargan nearly torn to pieces.
Hargan wa finally arrested in a dying
condition. He asserts that the dead men
robbed him the night before. He says
that be has been a clerk in New York;
also in Philadelphia. His full name is
Walter Alfred Hargan. aod be is evi
dently a man of some refinement and edu
cation. Going to Slate Their Grievances.
London, Aug. 1. It is customary in tbe
British army for the inspector general, at
certain intervals, to ask the men on pa

make. This has been regarded as a mere

their grievance, acting upon the official
query. Now, however, there is a move
ment among the enlisted men in London,
Aldershot, and elsewhere to present com
plaints as to long standing abuses, some
of which have attracted the attention of
even tbe higher members of the service.
