What more could he have said'
Tlie wonderfcl progress of society in
the past hundred years and more is al
most beyond description. The activity
of the hunmnjmind in inveiitingand per
fecting the steam engine, tne locomo
tive, the telegraph, the cable, the tele
phone, and tlie other great awakening
forces of the day, has been by philoso
phers attributed largely to the freedom
of thought, the spread of information
and the easy interchange of ideas
which is the special work of the news
The sensational papers are already
publishing outlines of President Arthur's
message. It is safe to say they know
nothing about it, and that the president
has not disclosed to anybody what he
will say on tlie various topics usually
treated in such documents. President
Arthur is a reticent man and succeeded
last year in baffling every effort to get
hold of any portions of the message be
fore it was read in the bodies to which
it was addressed. It Is probable that he
will do the same this year.
The unexpected and startling an

The egg business is one of the most
neglected of industries. Thousands of
dozens are annually imported into this
country. They always bring a remuner
ative price, and the past cold weather
sends up the price of eggs as surely as it
doe* the mercury. The good honest
hens that supply the market with this
indispensible article are the most neg
lected animals of the farm. They are
expected in most eases to produce eggs
and board themselves. A carefully con
ducted egg farm, managed with the same
intelligence brought to bear on other
successful industries cannot fail to be
In retiring from tlie command of the
armies of the United States, Gen. .Sher
man does not retire from his rank as
general. This rank with nroper pay he
will retain as long as he lives. When
he dies the rank and pay of general
ceases, the law creating it providing that
bis death shall act as a repeal of the law
creating and all laws and parts of laws
referring to that rank. The law creating
the office of lieutenant-general, which is
the rank heM by Sheridan, is in similar
terms. Lieut. Gen. Sheridan therefore
does not succeed to Gen. Sherman’s
rank or pay, but simply retains his own
rank and pay as lieutenant-general.

The whole republican state ticket is elect
ed by handsome majorities. Gov. Hubbard’s
majority is estimated at 15,000 and the bal
ance of the ticket much more, comparing
the total number of votes cast iullG pre
cincts in 1881, when Hubbard received
0 oh 7 and Johnson 4 820, to this the in
creased vote of Tuesday, and the inference
is that the tola! vote will be not far short of
150,000 instead ot 102 000, as two years ago,
pnvidtd later returns yield a correspond
ing increase in tha totall vote. By the ra
tio'between Hubbard and Bierman in these
precincts, which is about that of eleven to
niac, the former will receive 82,5 )0 votes,
and the latter 67 500. giving Gov. Hubbard
in the neighborhood ot 15,000 majority.
In the Dodge county senatorial district
Severance, r epublican, is elected over

being d. tested by the split growing from
last .alls contest, in Mower, Willriuson,
republican, is elected to the legislature.
Gov. Hubbard received 1,500 majority in
Ramsey county.
The whole republican ticket was elected
a 3 follows: Governor. George D. Robinson;
lieutenant governor, Oliver Ames; secretary
of state, Henry B. Pierce; treasurer and re
ceiver general, D. A. Gleason; uttorney gen
eral, Edgar J. Sherman; auditor, Charles
R. Ladd.
Butter has heeu defeated by a decisive
majority. Iu Boston, which last year tave
him a majority of 13,.170, he now has but
6.211. Only two towns in the State; so far
as heard from, report Butler gains. The
Republicans claim the election of R >binson
by at least 17,000 majority, and also twent.v
s>:ven out ot forty-seven senators and 160
out of 249 representatives.
Butler, to judge by present indications, has
; ulled about 135,000 votes, or 2,u00 more
than lasi year: while RoblSSOn hue received
160,000 or 40.009 more than were cast for
Bishop in 1882. As shown above. Nearly
6 )0,00-* votes have been cast, w.'-ich is an
amount more than 40,000 greater than was
ever recorded in M ts&achusetts. The near
est approach to this number was in 1880,
when 258.000 votes were cast.
In New fork thrre is some doubt as to
the result, though the state has probahjy
gone Democratic, (xcepting that Carr, Re
publican, candidate for secretur}' of state, is
tnought to have been elected. The Repub

both branches of the legislature, which will
insure the election of a Republican senator
lo succeed Lapham. la Brooklyn the con
test over tha mayor has been a hot
one, and the result is very close;
both sides claiming a majority ot
some 2,600 votes, the ticket probably is,
secretary ol state, Joseph B. Carr; control
ler, Alfred 0. Chapin; treasurer, Robert A.
Maxwell; attorney general Dennis O’Brien;
state engineer and surveyor, E. Sweet. Jr.
The Albany Argus dem.. estimate at 2
o’clock a. m. elects the Democratic State
ticket at by 10,000 to 15,000, except Mfiy

to 12,000. It estimated the senate 10 re
publicans and 13 democrats. The assem
bly is in doubt.
Complete returns from 61 of the 67 coun
ties in the stale give Niles, rep., for auditor
general, a majority of 15,443. The three
remaining counties, Bradlord, Forrest and

jority to about 17,000, which ia a large
republican gam. The offices elect are:
treasurer, William Llnnesey; state auditor,
Jerome B. Niies.
The Democratic ttate con ruittee claim
the election by over 7,030. They also claim
the assembly. Tne Republican state cotn

The Second Floor and South Wall of

A frightful accidrnt occurred on Tfiura

were crushed securely between* heavy tim

Senator Tabor’s Big Pistol.
Denver Tribune: After the performance
at the opera bouse last night, ex-Senator
Tabor and lais wife left the building arm in
arm. When opposite the car stables on
Curtis street the ex-senator concluded to
put on his over-coat. In the inside pocket
of the coat the ex-senator had a large
doub 1 e-action revolver, and Mis wife, in
order to allow him to use his right hand if
attacked, moved to the other f-ide and took
the ex-senator’s left arm. In doing so she
pushed the pistol out of his pocket and it
fell on the pavement, and one chamber
was discharged with a loud report. For- !
Innately the bullet sred aimlessly, snd no
serious damage was done. Tha affair cre

crowd soon gathered on the spot. Some
one started the rumor that the ex-senator
had been shot, and policemen and report

Mis. Tabor nearly fainted, and at first
thought that she had been hit. A hole in
