third-terners showed fight, but under,
gag-law the machine carried its point
by thirty-seven majority. This Is a
very poor showing for the assertion
that the people demand Grant, but for
all practical purposes it is good
enough. The ex-President has secur
ed New York, Pennsylvania and Ver
mont, and expects to bag Illinois in a
short time. Ai enthusiastic third
termner, who is evidently itching for a
fat. post-offiee, blasphemnously alluded
to Grant as the "God of Battln," and
was as blasphemously appllauded.
Whether Conkling can deliver the
goods he has promised remains to be
seen. The Rlepublicani "scratchers" of

an officer. Sherman hlavinag denied
that any movemenlt had been madec

From the Memphis Avalanche.
The full text of the opinion of Judge
.J. 0. Pierce, delivered recently in the
Circuit. Court of Shelby county, in a
case of garnbling in futu'res, is present
ed on the second page. The Judge de
cides thit dealing in option contracts is
a misdemennor, according to the Stat
utes of Teninessee, amid that it is tie
duty of the grand Jury, now in session,
to Institute proceedmings against any
party in Shelby county who ire engag

parties buyiig "At1ttures" in grain, cot
ton or othr merchandilise are "gaim

perative. It, is no more nor less law
ful for A to "'copper the ace" in Sema
tor Blessing's palatial establishment
than it is for C to bet with D that
wheat will rise three cents in thirty
days. That is the law. As a question
of morals, the superior demoralizing
tendencies ogallblilg in ''futures" are
thil forcibly illustrated by Judge
''The per'nicous results followilg this
species orgambling have often been ex
posed by tile courits. Though the
practice be simple gaming, it assules
the garb and claies the ionors of le

gating, most reprehensible and most
deserviig ofthe penalties prescribed
by the law, because, by Its impudent
assuumptiou of virtue it succeeds in ei
trapping Imally ersons who are, in all
other respects, honest and law-abiding
citizens. Doubtless many of the wit
nesses in this case, who, according to
their own testimony, have speculated
inl 'futures,' were ignorant of the law
breaking which the speculations in

ows of 'respectability, and with the fat
cilities afforded of carry ing large oper

it of speculation has been developed,
which lihas resulted in the establishment
of a national system of gambling, ot so
vast proportioits is to dwarf into noth
ingness the Old system of the noble
art of "chance." Lotteries and King
F.ro must step to the rear. The de
moralization attending the gambling,
spirit under the inspiration of "'puts

To Its poisonous inlfluenmcc must be as
cribed the cause of thme great majority
of defalcations, which have become so;

Senator Butler Tells How They Do in

A Washingtont dispatch says: "Sena

ed tihe inajority rep~ort to-day oin the
inv'esti gatmons made by the Senate
CommiFttee on Civil Service and lie
trenchmnent last summer. The conm
mittee was instructed to investigate
the alleged dlischarge f-om civil office
of certalin ox -soldiers of Rthode Island,
ini violation of the lRevised Statutes,
which direct that wounded soldiers antd
sailors shall be given the preference in
makinig appointmients to civil offce.
The report states that the testitmony
shows beyond dispute that the Statutes
in question had been violated, and that
discharged Union soldiers wvere supI
planted wvholly wvithtout cautse. The
majority say the civil service of this
governiment inever will be reformed and
and purified so long as those charged
with Its admistration violate Its plain
est principles it appointments to office.
Thte mere premulgation of civil servIce
rules, orders amnd regulations is a farce,
while the officials upont whomn they are
intended to operate, are incapable or
wilfully and contemptuously ignore
them. The cure of the evil rests with
Congress and the aproinlting power,
and the responsibilIty for thte condition
of affairs, as disclosed by the evidence,
faistens itself there also. The report Is
accompaitied by a bill which provides

A TURKISH TRAGEIY.
WilyAbdul Ahia was Deposed-A Woman,
adt Not theo People, at the Bottom of ti.
From the New York Herald.
Our readers will remember that in
January we laid before theim an un
disguised narrative of the origin and
netlods of thut peculiar revolution
which in May, 1876, put one Sultan
aside aid put another in his place
without ally apparent reasol that the
public could comprehend at the time.
We showed then that the will of the
people, which was assigiled in the bul
letils as the auithority for the deposi
tion, could have less relatioln to events
of that iature lin Turkey than in any
other country in the world, and, in
short, that this was merely a name
given by an abuse common enough in
all history to a very narrow intrigue.
"Will of tile people" is a Convenient
phrase. It cal consecrate the wretch
ed trickery of our own thimlblerigging
politicilhi in coniventions and returu
ing boards, and why should it not
give dignity to the revelge of a Mos
HUSSEIN AVNI PACIIA,
the Grand Vizier, loved the third wife
of the Sultan Abdul Aziz, anl was
favored by her. But she was also
loved by IIassan Bey, one of the Sul
tan's aitles-de-calp, who was also the
Sult an's brother-in-law, since Hassani's
sister was the Sultan's fourtlh wife.
Iassan, because of this near relatioff
to a rival wife, was not to be 'trusted
by the fair Mrs. Bluebeard of the
story, anl so was made an enraged
aildi not a ilhappy lover. Jealouq of the
success of his rival, lassan told the
story of the iltrigue to Ilis sister, in
fornied 1er tlit the third wife was
tuifaithful to tile Sultan, and that it
was her duty to comnnuiicate tils un
pleasant news to his savage Majesty.
She told tie Sultan and he killed his
third wife-a-beat her to death in the
palace, ats hitherto related. Thereby
the Sultan set. fin moti6 the machinery
that was to Cild in Ilis own ruin, for
how could lussein Avid Pacha, who
heard within an hour of what. had
happened to the fair partner of his
guilt, imagine that the Sultan, know
ing of her offience, should not know of
hils? lie understood consequently
that it was nlecessary to provide for
his own safety. II a du1 a la morte,
therefore, a inodern Sultan, his will
entingled in all the confusion of the
apparatus of authority, is no match for
the practised head of' tie government,
used to manouvring that apparatus.
So it was here, and before the Sultan
could lift a finger he was dethroned
by the contrivance of the Vizier.
For the moment, therefore,

have been a continuation so much Ill

No steps wore taken, apparently, to

Hlassan's sister endeavored to enlight..
