Senator Blackburn, of Ken
tucky, has written an open letter to
Col. John C. Noble, of Paducah, Ky.,
in which he declares his unalterable
opposition to Mr. Clevelaud as a pres
idential candidate, and gives forth
the startling Information that no
democratic member of the Seuate
would support honest G rover. Mr.
Blackburn may be right, and again
he may be wrong in his oplniou
touching the opinions of other Sena
tors. It is rather difficult for oue
Senator to tell just exactly what all
the other Senators think upon any
given subject or man. And if the
democratic side of the Senate wat
polled upon the Cleveland question,
the Senator from Kentucky might
find himself not as well posted as he
think he is. But for that matter,
Biippose all the Honorable Senators
are against Mr. Cleveland, what of it?
They are an infinitesimal part of the
the great Democratic party, in the
first place, and in the second place,
tin majority of them have always
been against him, his following has
always been among the rauk aud file,
he has never tood;in with tfce bosses;
he has never cared to, and nevertried
to and that is the "wherefore" of
much of the opposition to him. It is
too early for any Senator or auy Dem
ocrat to say who he will have, or who
he won't have for President As for
Mr Cleveland, he has said he is
against the "free, unlimited, inde
pendent coinage of silver;" what he

know. While tb Foice bill was up j
the Democrats would have supported
any kind of silver bill to have made
terms with the Western silver Sena
tors against the Force bill. Now that
iniquitous measure is dead and out
of the way. the Democratic Senators
will be expected to study more min
utely the silver legislation and not go
to the extreme of making the country
"financially drunk" on eighty cents
silver dollars. It is not at all impos
sible not even Improbable that, be
fore the date for the nominating con
vention in 189.3, Mr. Cleveland and
his party may entertain very harmo
nious ideas upon this great question.
Grover Cleveland is honest, intelli
gent aud brave, and it will take more
than a little difference upon one ques

him up, however much the Honora

or districts it would be a to'al failure.
In the lamer counties above men
tioned the salaries of the Clerks
would be greatly reduced, but the
allowauue made for deputies is so
great that the result would be mere

from the pocket of the Clerk into the
pockets of his deputies.

there would be no saving at ai. we

deputies make as much now as they

fact and make the illustration merely
to show how unjustly and unneces

That part of the bill that puts the
District Attorneys on a salary, i

move as well. The cupidity of man
ought not to be tempted by "contin

is likely to hatch out a nest of frivo
lous cases that should never have
been hatched at all. Aud for these
frivo!ous cases the people are not on
ly compelled to pay the Attorney
General his fees, but are compelled
to pay as well, jail fees piled up

Not only ought the fees to "be cut

legislature could make, and at the
tame time correct a serious and grow

some way, the long confinement of
persons charged with trifling mis
lemeauors. To illustratie, indict
ments are found agaiust twenty
negroes for crap shoo.ing; the
officers are busy attending upon the
Court aud cannot find the negroef
and make the arrests until after
Court adjourns. Immediately uKn
the adjournment of Court, however,
the arrests are made. The negroes
are put in jail to await trial at next
term; they remain there niuety days,
at 40 cents jer day ; each crap player
therefore costs the county $36; twenty

There is indeed plenty of room for

THE PRATTLE B.
I don't like to make the misfor
tunes of another the subject of my
story, and I do so only in order to
point thd moral.
A little boy was run over last Sun
day by a street car, and his leg was
ho baliy mashed it uaa to oe amputa
ted. The wonder to me is that more
boys do not happen to serious acci
dents. And auother wonder to me is
that mothers, devoted christian
mothers, will allow their sons, of ten
der age, fioin twelve to tweuty years,
to stroll about tne street-, away ironi
home, they don t kuow where.
I account for this, partly, in the be
lief that mothers do not know what
an injury they are doing their sons
oy tnis tuteuuea muuue-s. adu mr
tner I accountfor it in part by the
error common to mothers the belief
that their sous are better thau other
people's sons. This is a common er
ror and a fatal oue. I was a boy once
myself and I speak both from experi
ence aud observation, aud when I
say that boys need watching aud con
trolling, I address myself to every
mother who reads these lines.
Talmage is credited with a strong
speech when lie is made to say, "give
a bov a pony aud he will ride to hell."
The expression is nearer truth than it
is oetry, aud I will put myself on re
cord as saying that U you win give a
boy the freedom to run the streets, he
will run to the devil. lie can no
more wallow in the gutter without
soiliuGr his clothes than he can mix
with the rabble of the streets aud

Boys ape men. There is a fasciua

be to some, I venture the assertiou
that four-fiths of the boys who run
these streets, wmoke, chew tobacco,
and swear. If there are any who dif
fer with me let them a-k the police,
who know more of the habits of b.y
in general than any of the mothers
or most of the fatiiers.
Let there be a salacious trial in the
police court, where the participants
aud witnesses are called from the low
est dens of sin. aud the boys know
it first aud if th Recorder does not
drive them from his room, they diiuk

oaths and dirty jokes of vulgar men

them follow in the wake of these

much aud their conversations smell
of the gutter.
Men of decency, even if they are
wicked and vulgar themselves, re

A prominent minister of the gospel
went to a large publishing house to
procure hymn books for his congre

had some very cheap ones; in fact,
that if he did not object to a little ad

free of charge. The good old man
readily accepted the offer, as he
thought to himself, "When I recieve
the books I can cut out what adver

one time in his youth a devoted fol

men's bouib instead of their bodies,
he was presented to two very digni

The first question they asked him
was: " hat would you do to a man
who denied the authenticitiy of the
Scriptures?" "Do?" auswered the
young man, "I wou'.d give him a blue

plaster on his back for supper. That's
what I'd do."

"Have you used any patent pro

"Has any puysicau nonsuited yu

There was a long array of questions

We will now bring the psychological
telescope of Substaniial Pnylosophy to
bear upon the phenomena, in order if
possible to make the readera and editor
ot Hehalu understand the teaching of
aubtitautialism in such cases.
Man is a dual being; the inner man is
a perfect counterpart of the outer man ;
thai is he, the inner man, has all the sen
suous organs that are ascribed to the
outer man; again, the inner man, has
eyes with which to see, ears with
which to hear, nose with which to
smell, mouth with which to taste aud
hands with which to feel; hence it is a
perfect organism with all the functions
which we credit the outer man with.
"Sensational producing causes in the
natural realm may be both material
aud immaterial, but they can only ef
fect our sensuous consciousness
through the regnant life-force which
pervades every animal organism;
which force of vitality is corrrelated to
tbe mental-force of all organic beings,
upon which consciousness of either
pleasurab e or painful seusatioLS can be
predicated." All force, physical,
vital and mental, exists primordiaUy
in God himself, the original and only
self existent and untreated entity trom
whom as the universe persouitied, all
existences, material and imaterial hare
evolved." All force comes from Him
and acts only by es ablished laws
which LI e has ordained. Uod gave tu
the mental, intellectual and rational
force in man the power to act, as much
as He did to electric! y, heat, light,
gravitation, vitality or animal instinct;
but having made man alone iu his own
iuiage that rational form of force only
had delegated to it the independent
power oi uectiiiiuij, jiku kiio luuu u
whence it was derived, resiKiusible for

Life is the basic force of all oraginic
leiii if, bv which nature carries on its
vital functions, by which it appropri

and then to keep up the physical struc
ture, and by which the higher grades ol
organic beings not only move there bo-

with mental force, the same vital or
gauism is enabled to design and per
form intelligent work.
This vital force Is the substantial

INTERESTING BUDGET OF WASH.

The Sew Secretary of the
Special Herald Correspondent.
Washington, D. C, Feb. 23. Mr.
Harrison has been credited with being
a man who could not be caught by tho
brass band of office seekers, but his
nomination of ex-Oov. ("Calico Char
ley") Foster to be Secretary of the
Treasury proves that he not only can
be, but that be has been caught bv the
brass band methods adopted bv foster
and his friends to obtain control of the
Personally there in nothing decidedly
objectionable about Mr. Foster except
the abnormally big head w hic-h his pri
vate financial success has given him,
and which is certain to be greatly aug
mented by the new honor ho has just
captured. To be a self made man is
highly cr ditable to anyone, but to b
a ! ys telling, by your m tune-, as M
r'osior does, how pioud you are of thv
job, and how much better you have
done it than God Almighty could have
doue, is anything- else but creditable.
Politically Mr. Foster is everything
that is objectionable; he is a product of
the Kherman Hayes Keifer school,
and I predict that within a year from
tliis lime the Treasury Department will
have become what it was under the
Hayes administration, v'-en John
Sherman, now Senator, was at its 'head
a thoroughly organized political ma
chine personally controlled by its Sec
retary. There is no probability that the joli
cyoflhe Treasury Department, if it
can be said to Lave auy policy, will be
changed under Secretary Foster. It
will go right on iu opposition to giviug
the people a surlicieut volume of cur
rency to successfully transact the ever
growing business of the country, and
when its dear Wall Street gets crumped
it will, as usual, rush to the rescue with
all the millions it cuu control. This
sort of thing will go on unlil tbe 4th of
March IW.S; then there wilt be a grand
Well, the orders of Czar Itoed and
Mr. Harrison have been carried out and
the free coinage bill has beeu killed.
The committee reported it adversely to
the House, and oue of its republican
members gleefully said: "Well.it will
be impossible now to vote upon it at
Between the consideration of appro
priation bills the Senate has been de
bating the bill providing for the guar
anteeing of $100,000,000 ol the bonus of
the .Nicaiagus canal company.
Senator Vest made a very
strong speech agaiust it, in which he
called attention to the millions this
Government has sunk in the Pad dc
rail roads and pointed out the fact In at
the passage of this bill would violate a
treaty with England and be the certain
cause of war. Senator Morgau defend
ed the bill and intimated that there
were special reasons, not made public
why it should be passed. It is almost
certain to pass the Senate, but look out
for the liveliest kind of a circus when
it reaches the House,
Czar Keed grows worse as the time
draws near for him to be uucrowued ; be
now not only refuses to have a capitu
lation of a vote announced for the in
formation of the House, but he orders
the clerk to read a skeleton journal in
stead of the full journal of the previous
day's proceedings, aud he has members
not present entered therein as being
present aud refuses to allow changes to
be made when attention is called to
such palpable errors, and he is supported
by the vote of every republican. On
Saturday Representative Crisp, who is
credited with being one of the most con
servative men in the House, stated, as
did1 his colleagues, Clements and Turn
er, of Georgia, iilanchard, of Louisiana
and Wilsou, of Missouri, that he was en
tered upon the journal of .he previous
day as present aud not voting, when as
a matter of fact be was not present. He
left the House with the otherdeuiocrats
for the purpose of breaking a quorum.
Failing to get the error corrected, Mr.
Crisp said that he wished to call the at
teutiouof the country to the manner in
which the presiding oilu-er made up and
falsified the record. This ariaigment
brought a storm of applause from the
democratic side and the galleries. Is it
auy wonder that democrats iu the
House fillibustdr? .
Tbe story published here purporting
to state by authority that Mr Cleveland

sud it did not require tha. gentleman's
d.-nial to refute it. ti is position is well
u:iderftood here. Of course everybody
knows that he isn't a candidate, that is
to say that he isn't seeking the nomina
tion, if he was the anti-silver letter
would uever have been written. That
he would refuse the nomination if ten
dered, no one lor a moment believes,
unless he tuought his acceptance would
jeopardize the success of the party.
To-day is a legal holiday and the de

as the department clerks here.

The newspaper without any adver

Howe wauts to see, might suit the
tastes of some people, but it would be
without a very interesting fea:ure.
The idea that the advertisements iu a
newspaper only please tbe counting
room unfortuuately obtains iu some
quarters, but to the great mass of the
people they are not only interesting
but useful aud instructive reading.
They are the shoppers' constant com
panion, the business man's guide and
everybody's instructor. A news
paper without advertising columns
would fail to accomplish its niissior.
Besides, it would be about as oor as

The Wages of Sin.
The appearence of Mrs. Leslie Ca -ter
on the stage at Chicago revives
the memory of the salacious divorce
suit of which she was the heroi. e.
Her reception by the people of Chica
