Carter Harrison m in the field as a
candidate for the Alliance nomination for
the presidency. Mr. Harrison was the
Alliance candidate for mayor of Chicago
last spring. At least his candidacy and
its results giTe reason to suspect an alli
ance between him and the republicans.

The superintendent ot the new bureau
of immigration bag just made a remark
able ruling suspending the law against
the importation of foreign contract labor
in the case of the skilled tin plate work
ers who may come to the United States
to work in the possible tin plate factor
ies, which now exist in imagination only.
The superintendent by this ruling, as the
Detroit Free Press says, has far exceeded
any rights which he Las the power of ex
ercising under tbe lsw creating the bu
reau, and has also shown the tin plate
tariff to be absurd. Tbe tariff was im
posed to "build up a home tin plate in
dustry," and now the bars are to be let
down and the new employment which
was to prove so helpful to American la
bor, is to be given lo foreigners, not
only imported from but contracted for
across the ocean. What protection is
offered against "the pauper labor of
Europe" if that labor may be contracted
for in Europe, at European prices, and
imported duty free to tbe United States?
What does it profit American workmen if
Merthyr-Tydvil and Swansea- pour their
thousands into the United States to per
form the labor in the new industry which
all the people of the United States aie
taxed to build up mid maintain? And if
the contract labor law can be abrogated
upon occasion, why m:ght tbe superin
tendent of immigration not suspend the
Chinese exclusion law at will, and allow
Mongolian laborers to come over and
drive American workmen out of some
one of the occupations that they now
enjoj? Tbe ruling of tbe superintendent
is unfair, illegal and ridiculous.
6t. Louis licpuMic :
For more than a month past readers of
the Republic have bad reason to expect
John W. Jsoble's early retirement from
tbe cabinet, and there is little doubt .now
that Mr. IIsrnsOQ will soon get rid ot
him by giving him a place as circuit
judge. Mr. JNoble will hardly fail to ac
cept this, as it provides for him perm
nently, while if be remained in the cabi
net he would have to begin in earning bia
living again in a comparatively abort
time. The arrangement will be espec
ially agreeable to Mr. Harrison, who ex
pects every member of his cabinet to
give him at least one state delega'
lion in the national republican
convention. Poor Noble would
do it if be could, but be couldn't
deliver the Eighteenth ward, the ward he
used to live in in St. Louis before Mr.
Harrison took him up as a remaikable
discovery. He and Mr. Harrison are
both grievously disappointed in each
other and with very good reason. But
in this mutual disappointment the lie
public's sympathies are with Mr. Noble.
Though a lamentable failure as secretary
of tbe interior, his failure is largely due
to tbe fact that he was not as small in
that offise as Mr. Harrison bas been in
With Mr. Noble out of the way, and in
his place "a hustler" like Hon. Calico
Charles Foster, secretary of the treasury
Mr. Harrison will feel stronger. He will
submit to Boss Piatt and seek an alliance
with Boss Clarkeon . It is not beyond
tbe range of possibility that he will off r
Clarkson Nuble s place in tbe cabinet, la
some way or other he will overcome the
opposition of tbe bosses and go into tbe
convention with their hacking.
There he will meet and wrtstie with a
republican superstition that it U bad luck
to renominate a small man for u large
office. According to this superstition
only a very great man can be elected
president to succeed himself. Nobody
believes that Mr Harrison is a very great
man, and thousands believe in this super
stition. Audit's our belief that it will
beat him if be trades for the backing of
every boss in tbe couutry.
Dainty Tea Jackets, Petticoats and Night
gowns That Delight Women of Fashion.
Fin t in the lingerie department come the
dainty tea jackets, two of which we take
tor description. One in pale pine surah,
formi ik a close fitting jacket, with deep
shoulder cape, all of Valenciennes lac and
pink nlk insertions, finished off with a pro
fusion of lace tied with pink bows. An
other in pale blue, finely tucked from bust
to wa;t in points, meeting down the cen
ter, w th yoke, cuffs and waistband of lace
threaded with narrow gold braid, finished
off in bows and ends. Pretty summer
dress i ig gowns are in colored cotton crepon
trimned with gold braid, also in flowered
flannels with woolen girdles.
TWO STYLES OF MGHTDKESS.
The fine e renin tr Xaiusook petticoats
have as many us seven flounces of lace on
them, aud the silk ones are daintily
flouncd and tucked. Some of tlie black
silk ores, for day wear, have a flounce of
shot si; k, with lilack lace over. For day
wear ;ire also made tietticoats of bright
plaide-! silks, with ruffles of the same in
some cases; in others loose flounces appear.
Ihen there are iietticoats in plain, soft
silks if dainty color, with rows of inser
tion threaded with ribtion.
The varietv in uiuhtcowus is creat.
Many ire remarkable fur their exquisite
work, the dotting all hand wrought, the
tiny a jour veiuiui; appruring between the
plaits, the collars turning dow u from the
neck and making a cascade dowiithe front,
which, turn it where you will, falls in
grace' il folds. Others have been trimmed
with -lie finest Irish guipure, which is
practiially everlasting wear, and others
again lifter the .Mother Hubbard order.
The newest knickerbockers are cut wide
in the leg; some are gathered at the knee
on riblmns threaded through bands of in
sert ioL; others are trimmed with trills of
buttot, holed cambric and curved upward
towam the top of the knee, wherethey cul-
minatf in a txiw of ribbon, in the iihis-
tratioL are shown two ?tyies of night
dress. In the front of one appear insertions
of torction lace and embroidery.
Shoes for Evening Wear.
Gold and silver kid shoes are a great deal
worn; indeed, the supply of this siecial kid
is hardly equal to the demand. Many
jewels are introduced into the embroider
ies, an 1 occasionally the whole ornamenta
tion is composed of gems. Velvet is coming
in for shoes, especially for bridesmaids, but
they require paste buckles. Bronze shoes
have leturneu to favor, and sometimes
thesearechecked all over with very narrow

with pointed toes and tiny buckles ou the

nienta ion on shoes is now out of date, but
they are often made of gold and silver bro

our leading shoemakers can make up pieces
to ma ch the dress into shoes. A few of
the new shoes are richly embroidered in

Fancy Candlesticks Festooned with Flow
ersA Fluk Crepe Shade.
Fancy candlesticks or lamps, festooned
with violets, roses or sprays of lilac, tied
with satin ribbon, is the latest fashion in
table decoration, which is capable of in
finite variation, beinggoverned by the host
ess' individual taste.
A table decorated in good form is a poetic
confusion of porcelain figures and flowers.
At the ends and in the center stand rare
vases filled with exotic blooms. A little
hammock woven of gold tinsel cord, sus
pended over the center of the table, and
tilled with fruit aud flowers artistically ar
ranged, bas a pretty effect. Decorator aud
Furnisher, which is authority for the fore
going, tells also of a pretty way to make an
inexpensive lamp shade. Take pink cheese
cloth, wet it thoroughly, and theu, after it
lias been doubled several times, twist it
until it doubles itself up iu a knot. Secure
it from untwisting, and wipe it drv with a
towel and put it away to dry. It will take
aliout ten days to dry it thoroughly, dur
ing which time it should not be disturbed.
On unrolling the cloth it will lie found
beautifully creped, -md a lamp shade can
be made in the same way as tissue paper,
by simply cutting a hole for the chimney
in the center of the cloth. Tbe top should
tie arranged wan a high niching, and a
broad satin ribbon of exactly the same
shade fastening it. A fringe of soft lace
makes a beautiful trimming, and the ruche
ut the top is also improved by a lace edging.
Preserving Cut I'lowera,
A bouquet or cluster of flowers arranged
according to the fallowing directions is a
very lwautiful object, and it is said that
the flowers will keep fresh a long time: At
tach a weighted base to the bouquet by
which it cau be held man upright position
when placed upon a plate or shallow dish.
Sink the dish iu A i'-ep pan of pure, fresh
water, and arrange the flowers in the posi
tion in which they are to remain. Then care
fully cover the bouquet with a lel glass
which fits closely to the flat part of the dish.
The glass should lie perfectly filled with the
water, thus excluding all air bubbles.
Raise the dish from the pan without dis
turbing the bell glass aid place where it
will show well upon a table, theu carefully
wipe the moisture from the exterior, leav
ing a little water ou the dish or plate
arouml the base of the glass. Conceal the
edge of the plate by a light wreath, made

An Attractive Piece of Work.
The pretty head rest shown in the cut is
described by Good Housekeeping. The
material is honeycomb canvas with desigu
darned iu with floss. Linen floss is more
effective than siik fur this purpo-e, as the
meshes of the canvas are so large that silk
would not fill them as well as the floss.
The conventional design is outlined in
white floss, and the remainder of the sur
face s darned with yellow.
A .Serviceable Costume.
An exceedingly serviceable and at the
same t me stylish costume is depicted iu
the actompanying cut. It is suited to long
walks n-er country and mountain roads,
and affords an admirable traveling dress,
although especially designeil for fishing ex
peditions to mouutaiu brooks.
