Oute Thorne Milier has posted
from her home in Brooklyn 20.000 printed
slips, asking the women of New York not
to wear birds or their plumage. And the
women of New York go on wearing birds
and birds' wings until, according to deal
ers, the demand for this stjle of orna
ment is greater than ever before. The
only consolation in it for Mrs. Miller is
that sbe has I'one her duty.
We have additional retnrns of the pop
ulation of southern states by races, and
everywhere the increase of blacks is much
smaller than i hit of whites. Some of the
figures are very curious, however, and
will give rise to discussion . In Texas the
whites have increased 45 percent and the
colored people 25 per cent. In Missouri
he whites, between 180 and 1S90. in
creased 25 and the colored people 6 per
eent. In Georgia each race increased 19
per cent, while in Kentucky the whites
increased 15 per cent, and the colored
people only an infinitesimal fraction. In
North Carolina the whites increased 21
per cent, and the coiored peopls not quite
7 per cent. The revised figures for
LouUiana give a white gain of nearly 22
percent, and a colored gain of a little
more than 16 per cent.

As was to be expected from the acrim
onious condition of affiirs in the demo
cratic pirty cf Chicago, caused by the
mad desire of Carter H. Harrison to again
f-it in the executive chair, the city con
vention held on Saturday was the most
turbulent ever witnessed. It was a fore
gone conclusion that Mayor Creisrer hd
everything his own way, si the greatest
interest centered in the action of the Har
rison deletes whether they would bolt
or not. The crisis came when the com
mittee on credentials reported against
admitt'in a Int of contesting delegations,
and 47 f the Harrison men arose and
left the hall, 53 remaining and partici
pating in the proceedings of the conven
tion. The following excellent ticket was
then placed in nomination: Mavor,
Dewitt C. Crcgitr; treasurer, George C.
Weiss; attorney. Jacob .1. Kern; clerk,
Janus C. Stain
The 47 bolters went to an adjoinintr
ball and nominated Carter H. Harrison
for mayor and then adjourned.

it will supply another illustration of the
organization's insincerity and double
dealing in the matter of civil service re
form, the geueral'd removal will not in

will not do so because as a brigadier gen
