A GENTLEMAN well informed iI na

Democrats will nominate Thurman or
Hancock for President and take the
Vice-President from New York, so as
to make that State safe. Not a bad
Idea. Clarkson N. Potter would
make a strong run, or if the "boys"
wish an allitteration, why not Hancock
THE CONTEST In New York between
Tammany and anti-Tammany is wax
ing warmer than ever. Mayor Cooper
is overhauling all the ' Tammany
officials. The county clerk has been
removed for charging excessive fees
and refusing to submit his books for
inspection. The police commissioners
are now under fire and decapitation is
momentarily expected. We do not
see how the New York Democrats can
be harmonized in time for the fall
elections. The National Democratic
Committee should take the matter in
hand and put an end to the quarrel.
Protecting from Persecution.
We publish to-day portions of an
editorial of the News and - Courier
which are true as gospel. It is the
duty of the Democratic party of the
whole State to see that the parties
who have been inlicted on trumped
up charges be not compelled to defray
the expenses of'their trial. Most of
them are patriotic young men who are
poor, and as they are'merely the in
struments used by the Radicals to
crush the Democrats they should be
stoutly championed. The intelligent
jurors who have been ch.osen owe a
stern duty to the State to attend the
court, and prevent a packing of the jury
with worn out Radical hacks and loaf
ers. In the speaker's election in Wash
ington the Demnocrats had a majority of
one of all the members elected. If the
contest is so close what wvill be the
result of losing one or two districts in
this State next time? Had the Radi
cals cdpt.urnd this Congress three or
perhaps all of the Democrats from South
Carolimi Would have been ousted. in
order to"pi'eserve the State, we must
control Congress. To. do this we
must aid the lower counties, and pro
tect Democratic citizens from a ruth
less Federal administratlon.
Writing by Telegraph.
Wonders will never cease. When
the world was startled by the Inven
tion of the telephone, through which
voices could be distinguished at the
distance of a hundred miles, and
when, still later,. the phonograph
bottled up words and songs and
decanted theme out again, it was
though~t that the limit of Invention in
this particular direction was reached.
But the soientifie world Is 'again
startled by the ,production of a tele
graphic apparatus by means of which
the inventor has seated himself In one
office and ,Wrltten a letter, and a
facsimile of his handwriting has been
taken in a place fQrty miles away.' To
what distanoe this experimecnt can bd
extended has not yet been discovered,
but the inVdtion is pronounded one
of practical' ittlity. 'Te 'Sclentifeo
Amer'ican produp,es afiheslmile of the
writing whiei is quite legible and has
marked charapteristics. 2 The instrita
ment was Invented by Mr. - E. A.
Cowper, a distinguished British En
gineer. The principle Is quite simple.
Two telegraphie lines are required.
The operator moves with his 'hand an
upright jegecll:or stylpe, as1 In .ordina
-ry writing. The stylus ha.. two arms
connected- with It, throhl 0one of
which a current Is sent along one of
the wires whenever an-upward move
apei6 is made; the other ..arm. traus.
mitting a cuirrent through the second
wire when the stylus is moved later
ally. Theso' motions at the receiving
end of the line operate upon the
needles of two ,alvonlohneters which
move like the needles of a compass.
These needles are combined by deli
cate silk threads with at delicately sus
pended ink tube from which a dilminu
tive stream falls upon the paper be
neath ; the arrangement being such
that the combined motions of the
galvonometcrs' move the ink tube
through the same curves as the stylus
at the sending office moves through,
thus rcprodtucing the writing or draw
ing precisely. It is not probable that.
this instrument can compete in ra)id:
ty with s0111 of the telegraphic int
struments now in use, but' it may be
cooie useful, especially when import
ant messages are transmitted, requir
ing proof of authenlticity. A case in
point arose recently. James It.
Keene, a prominent capitalist of the
North, has recently been ondeavoring
to control the grai-n market of Chicago,
and by purchasing Iillions of bushels
of wheat he succeeded in raising the
price considerably. Two or three
weeks ago his agents in Chicago re
ceived a telegram from New York
signed "Keene," ordering theut to sell
a million bushels next day. They (lid
so, and the price of wheat fell three
cents in consequence. Other opera
tors, supposing that Keene foresaw a
tumble, hastened tilemselves to un
load, and thus created a p'lnic. Keenti
immediately pronounced the despatch
a forgery, and his agents had to make
good the loss, amounting t6 thou
sands. Detectives are at work to dis
cover the perpetrator, but have not,
succeeded yet. In all such cases
agents are compelled to rely upon the
precautions used by the telegraph
company to prevent fraud; and when
a clear forgery is executed they are
bound to lose. had the Cowper tele
graph been in use the agents would
have known that Keene would himn
self have written and signed the
despatch amid could have detected a
forgery. The advantages of a cheap
system of transmitting signatures are
boundless. It is to be hoped that Mr.
Cowper or some one else may succeed
in utilizing this invention.

Messrs. Edilors: The election for town

that a proper selection be made for In

if for nothing else, at least in 'recogni
tion of a faithful discharge of duty.
