EXGOVKRNOR HOABD, of WilCODSlD,
has returned to bis work as an agricuU
sural journalist. It is to be boped that,
as the result of bis experience in the last
campaign, be bis carried with bim into
bis retitement tbe valuable political and
journalistic lesson tbat in politics a fight
for principle bas in It more of tbe ele
ments of success than all ibe plausible
demagogy and "campaign cries" tbat
politicians and their editorial backers can
invent. If be bas learned this in tbe
school of experience, his usefulness and
bis influence as an editor will be greatly
The Chicago Herald intimates that tbe
recent wholesale discharge of conductors
on tbe Illinois Central may result in
trouble. Ia its is:ue of Thursday it says:
"Whether the discharge of a number of
conductors by the Illinois Central railroad
company without any reason being given
will cause trouble or not will be deter
mined in a few days. Conductor Qainn,
who is one cf the committee examining
Into tbe matter, said tbat be did not
know exactly what action tbe Order of
Railway conductors would take. Tbe
matter would have to be brought before
the different divisions of tbe order, and
when tbey arrived at a decision it would
be reported to tbe executive committee.
It might b that a special meeting of the
order would be called, and if so would be
held in Chicago in about 10 days. He
was not at liter'y to divulge any conver
sation tbat had been bad with Superin
tendent Sullivan but he would say tbat
the conductors were not discharged for
unsatisfactory service. Superintendent
Sullivan said that he did not care to dis
cuss tbe matter. The men bad been d s
charged for good and sufficient reasons,
but be would not sute what tbey were.
He would say, however, that it was not
on account of "unsatisfactory service..
Under tbe above captain Henry Water
son in tbe Louisville Courier-Journal has
tbe following in tbe editorial column,
after some infoductory political matter:
When it comes to a final case of neces
sity may be quite sure tbat tbe "Lord
will provide," as He always bas done.
In tbe meantime let us run over some
of tbe possibilities. Here is a good, fat
ticket, round and rosy, like Little Butter
cut and safe at both ends. For president ,
Grover Cleveland, of New York; for vice
president, Horace Boies, of Iowa. Or
this one: For Dresident, Grover Cleve
land, of New York: for vice president,
Isaac P. Gray, of Indiana. . Or tbis nn-:
For president, Grover Cleveland, of NiW
York; for vice president, William R. Mor
rison, of Illinois,
All this is with the understanding tbat
New York is solid for Mr. Cleveland. In
tbe event tbat It is not, and tbat we sb -.U
have to leave New York out and Beek a
candidate elsewhere we must enme
west. Here the field is rather spec
ulative than positive, though we have
one mm who next after Mr. Cleve-
. land, embodies all tbat the demo
cratic party stands for, and embodies
it with the first order or ability and a
character of sterling enemy. How
would this do: For president. John G.
Carlisle, of Kentucky; for vice president,
Roswell P. Flower, of New Yon? or
tbis: For pres cient, John G. Carlisle, of
Kentucky; for vice-Dresidunt, Leon Al
bett, of New Jersey ? or thit: John G.
Carlisle, of Kentucky; for vice president.
Thorns M. Wuller. of Connecticut? or
Ibis: For president. Arthnr P. Gornito.
of Maryland; for vice president, Isaac P.
Gray, of Iudiaua? or this; For president.
George Gray, of Delaware; for vice pres
ident, Isaac P. Gray, of Indiana. (Hur
rah for Gray and Gray ')
It is true that Mr. Carlisle lives at tbe
south end of tbe Cincinnati and Coving
ton bridge; but be is in no sense a reriel
brigadier. He is well known from one
end of the land o the other as a conser
vative statesman of transcendan. abilitie ,
calm, enlightened and upright, unci mn;
ularly just in all bis mental forces. No
body can doubt that be would make a
good president, acd give tbe country a
safe, sound, enlightened administration.
Bat suppose neither Cleveland nor Car
lisle is available, how would this do: For
president, J mss Campbell, of Ohio;
for vice president, Leon Abbett, of New
JerteyT Or tbis: For president, Horace
Boies, of Iowa; for vice president, Tbomns
M- Waller, of Connecticut. Or this: For
president, William R. Morrison, of Illi
nois; for vice president. Roswell P.
Flower, of New York. Of tbis; For
president, Isaac P. Gray, of Indiana; for
ice president. William E. Russell, of
Massachusetts. If none of these tickets
will answer as a combination tbey can be
separated and any one of tbe vice presi
dential suggestions can be advanced to
tbe first place. If we can find nobody in
the west, if Campbell is not re-elected in
Ohio nor Boies in Iowa, and if, in conse
quence, we have to go east there is Patti
son of Pennsylvania, Abbett of New Jer
sey, and Waller of Connecticut. What
ia the matter with any of tbem? Why
gentlemen, tbe woods are full of demoi
cratic possibilities. Those we have named
are not even bid in tbe bushes. We can
see ibtm hourly as they pass to and fro
among the sweet midsummer foliage, but
there are still others away back in the
forest. Provoke us and we will develop

A GARDEN PARTY COSTUME.
A Plctareeqa Toilet Designed Especial
ly for Fetes and Garden Fartiee.
In the accompanying cut is illustrated
a fete costume recently imported. The
three-quarter jacket is in apple green cloth,
lined with gold gimp around tbe armholea
and down the aide seams of tbe pointed
fronts. The back is close fitting and long
er than the fronts which are semi loose and
have the ribs of the cloth running slant
wise while these are horizontal at the back.
AX IMPORTED COSTfME.
The collar and sleeves puckered on the
shoulders are in plain Betigaline silk. The
round skirt in pink Indian cashmere i.s
bound with gold braid, from under which
projects a hem in silk of a deeper tint.
Stars embroidered in silk and gold thread
encircle the skirt and ornament the left
side. The hat, which is from Virots, is in
Manilla straw, faced with t:reen velvet in
keeping with the crosshawls on the low
crown. Ihere is a trail of tintea leaves on
the bent bnm and panache of light green
feathers at the back. The parasol is in
pink crepe, veiled with bouillonnes and
flounces in mousseline de soie. Narrow
ribbons hide the ribs of the frame.
Glovea and Shoes for Men.
Golden tan kid gloves are worn by gen
tlemen in the street, when making calls,
and at church. At morning weddings the
groom, ushers, best man and guests wear
very light tan colored gloves. At after
noon wedding and in tbe evening also,
the men of the bridal party wear the palest
pearl colored gloves, with very narrow
stitching of black or self color. MeD's
gloves are of glace kid, and are fastened by
Patent leather and fine calfskin shoes
worn by men of fashion have the round
French toe instead of those with sharply
pointed toes lately in vogue. Walking
shoes are high about the ankle, and are
laced or buttoned, as the wearer prefer.
Low shoes, laced on the instep, are entirely
of patent leather, and indeed all very
dressy shoes, whether high or low, are of
the glossy patent leather throughout.
Black socks of lisle thread or fine Baibrig
gans are still preferred for wearing, either
with high or low shoes. Tan colored,
mode and gray socks, quite plain or with
narrow lines of color, are also worn.
Pocket handkerchiefs of fine linen, with
narrow hems hemstitched, are forltest use,
and those with a narrow border of color
are for general wear. Harper's Bazar.
Tbe Newest Gloves.
The newest gloves for day and evening
wear are in tbe fashionable color corn
flower blue. These nre loud, and no lady
with a modest taste in dress would care to
wear them. Doeskin gloves in mild shades
of tan and brown, with leather bindings
and bras buttons, look smart with tailor
made gowns. They will stand a good deal
of hard wear. The prettiest evening gloves
are in soft, nameless shades of pink, mauve,
gray, drab and yellow. Short gloves are
very little worn.

leading ideas, while the favorite flowers
are the cowslip, the polyanthus, cornflower
and the buttercup, and fruits are pre par
ing for the later season. Brocades on gold
gauze ribbons are much worn, and shot
silks, which often display brocaded forget
menots and pansies and shot spots of large
size, round and sometimes elliptical. The
favorite combinations are brown and blue,
lemon colored and sky blue, pink and yel
low, yellow and green, black and gold.

WOOL AND SHODDY.
Dotle Tariff Increase the t se of Shoddy?
Views of a Prominent Manufacturer.
Some controversy has recently arisen
between The American Wool Reporter
and The Dry Goods Economist as to
whether the w xl tariff tends to increase
the use of shoddy. This controversy arose
over the analysis which The Economist
had made of the woolen goods manufac
tured by the advocates of high wool du
ties on the one hand and by the friends of
free wool on the other.
The result of The Economist's compari
son showed th it the goods made by cer
tain members of the high tariff Manu
facturers' clnb. of Philadelphia, is com
posed of 38 per cent, of wool or worsted,
58 per cent, of cotton and 3 per cent, of
shoddy; and that the goods made by
members of thu new free wool organiza
tion known as the Wool Consumers' as
sociation, with headquarters at Boston,
is composed of 87 per cent, of wool and
worsted and 3 ir cent, of cotton.
The Wool R porter attempts to break
the force of ex ict figures like these by
Iointing out that shoddy is largely used
in England, a fact which nobody dis
putes. The only question involved is
whether the wool tariff, by increasing
the cost of imported wool, encourages
the use of shodt y.
In answer to this simple question Mr.
Arthur T. Lym in, of the Lowell Manu
facturing company, Boston, who is one
of the leading c arpet manufacturers of
New England, i nd is himself a member
of the Wool Consumers' association,
writes a letter to the Boston Journal of
Commerce which should be decisive in
the question at issue.
"It may not be possible," says Mr.
Lyman, "for The Economist to prove
that the advocates of free wool useless
shoddy in all cases than their high tariff
rivals, because any manufacturer must
make goods to st-11, and if the buyer will
not take all wool goods at a price higher
than shoddy irritations, the all wool
goods will not s lL But it is perfectly
clear that heavy duties on wool directly
and forcibly enourage the increased use
of shoddy and h;iir and waste and cotton
in so called woolen goods. It is notorious
that there has bten an immense increase
in tbe use of such materials in this
country. If there were no duty on
wool it is certaii. that the temptation to
put cattle hair a id cotton into carpets
would be much less, and if all wools
were free there would be less of cheap
and waste material put into all kinds of
"Cheap goods and shoddy goods and
poor goods in evi-ry way would still be
made to meet certain demands, but all
wool goods would be relatively cheaper.
The cheap foreign goods sent to this j
country are mad: to sell on their ap
pearances, au 1 ii. spite of the monstrous
duties on importe d goods, and of course
the cheap and showy goods maie for the
English market oy English or German
manufacturers ai e made to undersell the
better English goods. The consumers
get the worst of it all the time, and the
manufacturer wlo wishes to nse wool is
beset with many troubles. Less politics
and more courage will give the man
ufacturers free -vooL They all need it
and they all warn. it. They want a duty
on their goods, too, but their monstrous
bargain with the wool growers, to the
injury of all consumers, has not made
safer the duty on goods in fact it has
brought to lifa a 1'ree trade interest."
Barley for Malting.
McKinley doubled the duty on barley
under the pretence that it would help
farmers. The hurley which came into
the country under the old law was used
tn making malt for brewing beer, the
barley of the colder climate of Canada
being much more suitable for malting
purioses. A wr.ter in the Wisconsin
Agriculturist prrs the matter in this
way: "Barley cul .ure for malting pur
poses has never b-.-en profitable in this
conntrj- for sever il reasons. Maltsters
do not buy it so ltng as they can get En
glish or Canadian barley for reasonable
rates, but when these crops fail they
sometimes fall bark upon the American
product. The result is that farmers
have allowed the crop to fall into disre
pute, and the final conclusion has been
reached that it is not a paying crop, that
the foreign grain t'Utseils the home prod'
uct owing to betttr soil and climate."
