Ta DEMoRATs, of Pennsylvania,
have nominated Senator Dill for
governor. The Philadelphia Times
says he will be defeated. The
Washington correspondent thinks
differently, but says that his nomi.
nation is the result of a combination
between Senator Cameron for the
Republicans and Senator Wallace
for the Democrats, by which both
will be re-elected to the Senate.
TaE REPUBLIOANS IN Congress
endeavored to make capital by as,
serting that the Potter resolution
was meant to despose Hayes. Yet
the very next day when Harrison, of
Illinois, introduced a resolution pros
viding for an investigation in
Oregon and South Carolina, and
asserting the validity of Hayes'
title, the Republicans refused to
vote, thereby defeating a quorum
and preventing the passage of the
resolution. This closes their mouths
effectually. The fact is, there
are more Republicans in Congress
than Democrats who would like to
see Hayes pulled out of his seat, and
it is rumored that they are really
the ones pulling the wires in the
WE HAVE RECENTLY had nothing to
say on the European question, be
cause nothing worth mentioning has
transpired. One day there are
rumors of war ; the next, rumors of
peace. Count Schouvaloff, the
Russian Minister to England, has
been on an errand to the Czar, and
has returned. It is now 'thought
that the prospects of peace are
brighter. England and Austria are
pronounced in full accord, while
the Czar will yield in the matter of
Bessarabia but is bent upon erect
ing the State of Bulgaria. The war
policy of Disraeli has just been
sustained in the Commons by an
immense majority. This is not an
indication of hostilities, but an
assurance that if war become neces
sary England will enter into it
with the greatest vigor.
OF ALL SUDSTANOEs and com
pounds in the world, nothing is
more harmless, in the general
opinion, than stove polish. One
* ~ would as soon dream of beating out1
a man's brains with a tallow candle,
or running him through the body
with a handful of soft soap as to
endeavor to end his days with stove
polish. But a recent event in New
York eity showvs that one kind of
stove polish at least is as dangerous
as dynamite or gunpowder. A few
weeks ago, a Mrs. Cole, who had
been married but three days, in
assuming charge of her new home
was engaged in polishing the parlor
stove with a compound known as
"Boyntoni's Liquid Stove Polish,'
when the stuff ignited and exploded
with such violence as to envelope
her in flames, and to inflict ftal
injuries from wvhich she died in a
short time. At the coroner's in.
quest it was ascertained that the
polish was a compound of naphtha,
gasoline and black lead, and that it
4 would explode if brought within
half a foot of a flame. The mer
chant who sold the stuff knew its
dangerous properties but neglected
to give any caution, and in conse-.
quence a life is lost, People cannot
be too careful in using unknown
compounds, especially such as
betray the presence of kerosent,
benzine or any other substance c f
the petroleum group.
Straws show which way the wind
bloive. Several announcements
have been made that Hayes will no
longer fight his party. He is also
reported as saying that the South
has treated him badly, and occa
sionally we hear that he is going to
get even with her. Coupled with
all these oomes@the startling state
mont made upon' o door of the
Ronee by' Congres an :Ellie, of
When asked to particularize he
asserted that two districts in South
Carolina, three in Mississippi and
some in Louisiana, beside others,
would be invaded. Without giving
his authority he pledged his word
that his phophecy would be verified.
Of course the possibility of such a
theory was scouted by the quid
nunces. It would'have seemed pre
posterous a short time ago. But
Hayes has backed down from his
former policy so completely, of late,
and has evinced such a desire to
get into the fold, that we may well
fear his acquiescence in the plots of
his party leaders. With them the
control of the next House is a
necessity, and to gain it they will use
every method of intimidation possi,
ble. A facile president is all that
is needed to bring back Ruger,
Merrill and Detrobriand to the
scenes of their former disgrace.
Those who argue that the Radicals
"will not dare do such a thing,"
should have learned experience
from 1876. Then Grant and his
party stopped at nothing, but were
guilty of outrages, the mere sug
gestion of which a short time before
would have consigned anyone to
prison or the mad-houso. It is
therefore not at all improbable that
troops will be sent to the doubtful
districts of this and other States
whether they are asked for or not,
and that attempts at intimidation
will be freely made by the Radicals.
Let us not rest too secure. We are
still in the midst of a revolution.
Peace will not come finally except
over the grave of the Republican
The National Democratic Com
mittee met at the Arlington House
last Wednesday, Senator Barnum in
the chair and the Hon. F. D. Prince,
of Boston, acting as secretary. The
committee was full. The members
in convention were unanimous in
giving a hopeful account of the
prospects for the fall campaign,
especially those from the South and
West. Those from the North and
East thought they could hold their
own and possibly make some slight
gains. They regard the Potter
resolutions with favor.
