THE DOG NUISANCE.
The prefecture of police of Fiance
has established a service of identity
in order to identify released convicts.

The end of the cvntituiou -smoh
of the senate aliout - o'clock Frid:n
morning without a vote on the repeal
bill was a result which was not. in
the nature of the case, unexpected.
As the Courier-Journal pointed out
before the bejrinnin of the session,
the minority in mkIi a contest had
all the advantage, and it was only a
matter of time and persistent defiance
oT the popular will on the pari of
that minorityAvhen the majority, un
der the slavish observance of the
present outrageous rule of the sen
ate, would he compelled to acknowl
edge their weakness.
The result, however, i.- mt a de
feat for repeal un!es the majority
choose to make it Mich. It leaves the
issue just where it was hefore the
trial of physical endurance began. and
has accomplished nothing fur either
side except to confirm the lillibtisters
in their confidence in Mich tactics oi
obstruction and to show the repeal
men that they must rely upon some
thing more than the mere bodily ex
haustion of their adversaries.
It also ought to strengthen theni
in the roolutiun never to surrender.
The people of this country have not
inherited and maintained a govern
ment whose legislation muM bo de
cided by the physical powers of their
senators. The state legislatures.
while often choosing I nited States
penal ors on other grounds than in
tellectual fitness, have never selected
them for their physical prowess. A
majority of the people have put the
government in the hands of the pres
ent administrarion and the present
congress. A few members of one
branch of that congress claim and
assert the right to dispute ami de
stroy the power of all majorities un
der our .system of government by ma
jorities. In resisting that assump
tion the majority are engaged in a
contest in which there is far more at
stake than the fate of the repeal bill.
If a minority can prevent a vote on
that bill a minority can prevent it
on all bills, block all legislative ac
tion and destroy absolutely the
. power of the people to govern them
selves through the institutions w hich
they have established as their sole
instruments of self-government.
We sincerely hope that the repeal
senators, confessed by their oppo
nents to be in a clear majority of the
senate, w ill neither capitulate to, nor
dicker with, this insolent and desper
ate baud of buccaneers. To treat
with them now would be as pusilla
nimous as to surrender, and. to sur
render would be not only to throw
the prosperity of the country as boo
ty to them, but to abandon every
prerogative with which the people
have invested congress and forsake
every duty which they have imposed
upon it. If the majority will not
brush aside the rule which permits
indefinite obstruction surely a
ltimsy and triyial bit of senatorial
furniture to be heldViore sacred than
the rights of democracy and the in
terests of the entire country! then
there is but one course to be followed
w ith consistency, courage and honor.
That is, to keep" the repeal bill con
stantly before the senate, if need be
until "the expiration of congress, al
lowing no measure to supplant it,
insisting npon thej-ight to put it to
a vote, spurning every suggestion of
compromise, conceding to the usurp
ing minority not one jot or tittle,
and placing upon them the responsi
bilityf stopping entirely the wheels
of legislation. That course will hold
these men up to an outraged and in
dignant nation as no other could, and
if it should not ultimately result in
their abandonment of their present
position and their recognition of the
right of the people to make their
own laws through the majority of
their chosen lawmakers, then noth
ing else short of a repudiation of the
extsting idiotic senate rules would.
One of the Mot Serlons Drawbacks to
Suborhar. and Country I.lfe.
In most tow is there are altogether
too many do-s. Perhaps this would
not be so if thjy were Ideal dogs; but
they are not Indeed, they generally
belong to tl e variety known as
"mangy curs,' in comparison with
which the trs ditional "yaller dog" is
a blue-blooded aristocrat. They sub
serve no conceivable use. Their only
known function is to snarl and growl
at passers-by ii the daytime and howl
at each other laost of the night. From
every point of view they are unmiti
gated nuisances that ought to be sup
pressed by the strong arm of the law.
They constitute one of the most seri
ous drawbacks to suburban and coun
try life. To many timid and nervous
people they make day a terror
and night a hideous pandemonium
of nnre&t If the dogs in question
were of any benefit to any one
these sufferers might be aked to
forego their individual comfort, but
such is not the case. As a rule, well
trained thorou rbbred dogs annoy no
one. The culpi its in question are mon
grels, whose o vners are too obtuse to
see what miisinees they are or too
indifferent to t le rights of their neigh
bors to carj. The conscience of such
people cannot reached except by a
stringent law. and the authorities of
the average ti wn never think of ex
acting such a 1 I'.v.orif they did would
not enforce it In many cases they
keep the rao,t objectionahle dogs
One of the ij.teresting phases of the
dog habit is th tendency of so many
people to keep logs in the inverse ratio
of their wealth. That is to say, this
poorer they a v. the more dogs they
keep. It was the Ram's Horn, we be
lieve, which rteent'.y printed a para
graph to the following effe t: ''When
you call on a i lan who is too poor to
buy a bible loo c out lest his numerous
dogs bite you." The point of the par
agraph is nont to, sharp, as any one
who has lived ia a country village will
THE AMERICAN INDIAN.
The Latest Theory MakN Them
si'eiitlxmi of tiie Chinese.
Man lived on this continent earlier
than or at leasl as early as he lived on
the European .ontinent. but it is not
believed that the Indians are de
scended from s ich early people. The
latest theory se.ems to be that the so
called American Indians are descended
from Chinese, who in some way
reached the Western coast thousands
of years ago. The parallelisms be
tween the customs of the Chinese and
the ancient Peruvians are often very
striking; the systems of government
of the two people were similar; the
emperor and the inea both claimed de
scent from heaven: both countries had
irrigating caru.ls. and in b.th coun
tries taxes were paid ia kind and
stored in public warehouses; both
countries mai ltuined public roads,
disposed of the r dead with the same
ceremonies and built houses much in
the same style Humboldt found in
the Mexican calendar strong resem
blances to the ancient calendar used
in Tartary, India and Thibet. The
skull of the American, except in its
greater length, greatly resembles that
of the Chinese.

with a wonde -ful memory. He read
the book of (i mesis once the other
(Jay, taking three hours to do it, and.
it is asserted, then repeated it. for
getting only some half dozen words.
He appears to be lacking somewhat
in intelligence and repeats in a parrot-like
way. The published story
about him goes on to say that in the
presence of reliable witnesses he gave
word for word, with all the minister's
gestures, a sermon he heard over two
years ago in Kiehmond, even pausing
to cough wherd, on the original oc
casion, a bad throat affeetion of the
clergyman had forced him to do so.

When Theodore Hook went to -the

A l'ni(ue Handbag;.
A very unique handbag of a Phila
delphia gentle nan attracts attention
wherever he carries it. He has jour
neyed around the world, and the bag
made the tour with him. He made it
a practice to write on the leather sur
face the name of each town and coun
try he visited, and in the course of the
trip the bag was completely covered.
The pair found their way hand in

of Europe with unpronounceable
names, and each one has been care

Hurled ia Three Coffin.
Of Attila, king of the Huns it is
said that his body was placed in three
coffins the first of gold, the second of
silver and the third of iron. All of
his arms, the trappings of his horses
and the thousands of mementoe3
which he had gathered on Vis cam
paigns were buried with him. History
further states that "all of the captains
and slaves who were employed to dig
his grave and bury him were put tc
death, so that none might betray tha
last resting-place of Attila, the great
est of the Huns."
Told of Talleyrand.
During the French revolution of
1830, when the fighting was going
forward, Talleyrand was pacing the
lobbies of the chamber of peers in
irrepressible agitation. At each dis
charge of the cannon, he would ex
claim: "Aha! The day is ours!" A
friend ventured tt ask: "Whose, mon
seigneur? On which side are you?"
