The Ciiitio will not nirect to care nothing for this charge. It ilocs care. It deeply ilcploies the fnct that these conscienceless cieatures have added tho villainy of slander to their already long list of moral cilnics; and it still moiu deeply deploics the fact that this lottery company's general reputation in Wash ington Is such as to warrant public be lief that the company is good game for persons bent on blackmailing. lint Tin: dime will bo patient in tho consciousness that lime will form lis best dcidal of all such charges. In tho meantime it will not pay much at tention to defending itself against the charges of these conspiratois. It will go tight on, as it has begun, stiiviug to lid the people of this expensive and corrupting incubus. When this has been done it may not be necessary for Tin: CiiiTic to ptovc the sincerity of Its puipose. JOMiPJUI. J'OIIA KliWK LKTTElti. 1'ashion has its slaves in other icaluis than that of diess. There is a largo t lass of newspaper editois who follow the fashion in opinion as obediently as the sociely man follows the fashion in hats and gloves. For a long time a wearily long time it has been tho fashion for these editors to s.iy mean things about Joseph 15. Forakcr of Ohio. Indeed, from following lids fashion Ihey have developed a habit of paying mean things about him, The'Ckitic is not devoted to Mr. Forakcr. It believes ho has done some vciy unwise things, and It coitainly cannot approve many of bin headlong enthusiasms. Hut it does believe he has been a very badly abused man. Moicover, It believes tho time will come v. hen, in justice to himself, ho will glvo to the public ceitaln letteis which, with ' a patience amounting almost to hero ' ism, lie has thus far withheld, while f-torms of misrepresentation nntl eal- iimny have descended upon him from j tho men and the journals of his own party as well as those of the opposition. Should that time ever come should the public ever see those letters there i will be, Tin: Chitic believes, a new fashion, and somebody else besides Mr. Forakcr will serve bis tin n as public ' doormat for a time. The Critic cheerfully offers to Mr. Forakcr, as it otters to all men who are tho victims of popular injustice, u forum wherein ho may present his case and spread his evidence. It believes ho has withheld thoso letters long enough. It wishes he. would li.in.l ilmm lwrn f,,r ,.,.,. autucs ad VKitTiniya. At last the grand old Commonwealth of 'Kentucky has aroused herself to a icallzing bouse of tho demand for true statesmanship. She has brushed aside those pretty and unprofitable considera tions which were wont Jo gum and clog the wheels of higher legislation, and has turned the full tide of her asseiu blid intellect upon a question which long has vexed and puzzled the pro foundest students of our economic needs. A bill has been Introduced In the Kentucky House of Jieprcsentatlvos to provide for tho severe punishment of circus mnnagt'is who advertise upon ilieir bills f'eals which ' Z'A psi: formed in their tents. Hy the pro--visions of this bill any person who shall have paid to witness a circus perform ance may enter complaint in a court of competent jurisdiction, and If he prove that tho advertising bills promise more than Is performed tho manager of the said circu3 shall be deemed a public malefactor and bo punished after the manner of ordinary criminals. Pleasing as it is to know that this gicat question has at last come up for hcttlcmcnt, It would be matter for na tional, If not universal, regie t were the Kentucky legislator not fully awake to tho impoitnnrc of the measure and the need for Its careful und unbiased contitleintion, for it is by no means a one-sided question First, it should be considered whether the ciicus bill Is, in its legal aspect, an advertisement or n portion of tho show. On this point the testimony of experts between the ages of (I and 15 should be taken. If It Is determined Hint the bills are a,pnrt of thuhhow, then the question arises whether llio public Interest is not best conserved by a distinctive difference between tho bills anil tho performance, au arrangement by which tho public obtains two shows for one price. On tho other hand, if the bills are held to he advertisements, ought not tho same principles bo npplicd to all advertise jnentsr For exnmplo, sujipose C'hnuncoy 31.

The gilp has him. ,i.'. iu.aji:'s Txcox,si.m:xcu As the protectionist papcis aro still dis cuss ng Mr. lilalnu's reply to Gladstone, perhaps some of them will explain the fol lowing facts: Mr. Dlalne implies that the tariff or llii was n freo-trado tariff, but In reality it was a protective tariff, as he hlni- H'H stalls in his "Twenty Years In Con ercM.." Analn, the tariff of lS'JA did not bring icllcrtothe country, as Mr. Maine Implies in his article that It did. He also admits this fact In his "Twenty Years In Congress." Again, the tariff or 1'JS, which was succeeded by prosperity, was not a protectivo tariff, as Mr. lllalno asserts In his aitlele, but a nondescript tariff passed for partisan purposes. In that year the Jackson men were divided, pint being protectionists und pait ficu tindeis. The anti-Jackson men weie all piotcctionUts. Tho Jackson men accordingly reported a bill to raise tho tariff In such a way that It would injure nianufaetuiers: for Instance. the duty on raw materials was raised moro than the duty on manufactured articles. Tliev thoueht that tho antf-Jackson nun would reject this measure and thus make enemies In the North. But tho anti-Jackson men saw through tho trick and the tariff was enacted 'Ibis tariff was de nounced by all tho Protectionists of the period, and in 1842, eight years after Its le peal, Henry Clay, who was an ardeut Pro tectionist, leferred to It as "tho tariff of 1SUH, which all condemned." Mr. lllalne states that the low tarlff'was tho principal caiuo of tho panics or 1n17 and 1830. If so, how is It that tu 1810 Henry Clay, In a speech On tho state of tho country, at tributes these panics to the despotic policy of the Executive, and states, further, that in his opinion a 120 iter cent, tariff would be sufficient protection. The tariff was then about 'J5 per cent. Again, the tariff of 1SI2, which Mr. Iilalno praises so mueti, was T per cent, lower than tho tariff nro- po-td by the .Mills bill. Again, .Mr. lllalne states Unit we did not recover from tho ! Pa"le of 1S57 until 1801, when the Hist Mor- I rill tariff was passed. This la another mls- statement, llio rabid protectionist, Henry (!. Carey, wrote a terles of articles on tho panic, arid it was evidently entirely over when this series was finished .March,lbC0. .Mr. Blaine further asserts that during tho four vears from 1857 to 18(51, which just preceded tho first .Morrill tariff, Kngllsh manufacturers held our market. If so, how was It that our manufactures wore neaily twice as great In 1M,0 as In 1650, as may be seen in the censuses of those years? How was it that during this period our annual exports of manufactures of cotton were, on the average, larger than they aro at tho present time, awl many of the cotton manufac turers weretlemautllnp; freo trade to aid them In driving tho Kngllsh from the markets of tho world? How was It that tho Iron nianuracturcrs of New England, then the chief scat of tho Iron mamifacturo lu this country, wero also demanding free trade, as Is stated by flcnry C. Carey? And. lastly, how was It that not a single manufac turer asked Congress for tho llrst Morrill tariff? Jlrnol.ilii Citi-.en.

Ills a story of military life on tho frontier. A group of joung officers wero seated around a table In the quartets of one of them, nta fiontler post In West. It was a winter's night; wind, snow and cold wero without, but In tho loc hut a brleht fire blazed upon tho open hearth, and tho b.iro room was made lu a seto homelike by lugs stretched over tho plank Hour and photographs ot lino picture pinned upon tho walls. The regiment was a particularly dull one. Not a young girl In thu post, and tho wives of tho Minor officers weio women who looked upon life from n serious and practi cal point of view. Malls came Irregulaily, the Indians wero quiet, dullness retgued. Hut now arlpplostlrrcdthcplacld waters. The Colonel's widowed sister hid arrUcd. She was bniely 25; she was childless aud rich In this world's goods. "What, do you think of the Colonel's sister?" suit! one Of the officers. "What do I think or her? I think that s ho has the saddest pair of ejeslevcrsaw," said another. "Just my thoiightl" "And nifnoi" "I made this samo remark to tho Colouel's wife," said the llrst speaker, "and she told me she thought It best to tell ma Mrs, War den's story, so that wo might all bo tho more careful In keeping away from subjects In her presence which might bilnc hack to ncr mo sail experiences oi ner past." Hettle Hansom met, while visiting her brother, an officer uamed Warden. He was a man of independent means, and on his marriage resigned his commission. But bf fore a year had passed a longing for tho freedom of frontier llfo was so strong upon him that ho easily persuaded his wife to try ranch life. They found a beautiful tract ot landt rich iu soil nnd with excellent water sup plies. To be sure, their eastern friends cried out that they wero "taking their lives In their hands." Did they not rcalizo that they were goinc Into a section of the coun try where Indians wero within a day's march of them? "Yes," Warden said, "I realize this, but the Indians aro us harmless us a. Hock of sheep, and besides the ranch is only twenty miles from Fort " Tho Wardens built themselves a com fortable houso and were fortunate in secur ing a burly Dutchman and Ids plothorlo frail for servants. Mis. Warden was au excellent horse woman and a good shot, so they cnoyed long rides about tho country aud seldom came homo without a well-tilled cAmo has, Aalhaie said, their nearest nclghbois were at tho fort tweuty miles beyond that Is, neighbors of their sort, for hero and there between were lands worked by Swedish aud Danish homesteaders. At tho close of the llrst year a child a littlo girl was horn. When this child was about 3 months old Warden found It necessary to attend to some legal matters, and to do this theio must be a rldoof 120 miles. Warden felt no fear In leaving his wife, jet when he stood on the door-step ready to start he said to her: "Hettle, if any trouble should come, have tho team put to tho big wagon antl make for the fort. Take tho north fork trail, and bo sure to have your pistols loaded and plenty of rcservo shots at hand, and if the red devils should, make escape Impossible, put the hnuzle first to baby's breast aud then to your otvn." Ills wife laughed and told him she had no fears. "Neither," said he, "have I, but Tor all that, remember, sweetbcait," aud then he rode away. A week passed, and late ono afternoon tho Herman, Johaun, camo tuto tho room where Mis. Warden was sittlujr with her baby in her arms. His ruddy face was so blanched that It took no words to toll that somcthlnc had happened. And this w.is what ho had to tell: A few minutes bctoro "Bob," a ruiserablo half-breed, to whom both Mr. and Mrs. Warden had shown many kindnesses, had nppcared suddenly In tho barn, given Johaun a messago for Mrs. Waiden, and then as suddenly departed as he had come, Ho told Johaun: "A train of emigrant wagons Is on tho valley load. An attack is planned. It Is known that Mr. Warden Is away from home. If iholudlans find lltpior there Is no telling what they would do noxt, and Airs. Waiden had better try for the fort as soon as night closes in." With all speed Mrs. Warden made her preparations, obeying her husband's In structions except as regarded tho horses. "Saddlo Kitty and Dan," bho said to Johaun, and when ho grumbled that "Kttty could never pull with Dan," tho quiet look on his mistress' face made him go out rather sullenly to do her bidding. When tho last bars of tho early spring twilight has quito faded out of the sky the Ecrilous Journey to the fort begau. For an our or more tho wagon dragged Its way along tho narrow, steep road, tho wheels Binking deep into the mud that the mauy warm rains had made. Suddenly Johann held up the horses, and, with u moan of "Mlendott, we aio lost!" began to cross himself and mumblo rapid prayers, while his wife wrung her bauds and sobbed aloud. Down in tho valley far below them tho gloom was broken by a sudden bright light. They were too far away to distinguish sounds, but they knew tho work of murdor and pillage had begun; knew that mother's teats and littlo children's cries would only add zest and pleasure to the savago revelry. Holding her babv closo to her breast, Jits. Warden tried to shut out for a moment every passing fear as sho asked for higher guidance, and In that moment tho German and his wife flying to evils that they know not of abandoned tho wagon and took to the timber. Left utterly alone, there was but one thing to do. Laylug her baby among tho straw, Mrs. Warden climbed out of tho wagon and unharnessed her little maro Kitty. The graceful creature seemed as conscious of all "that was transpiring as though sho posecssod a human soul."" She did not whinny at tho sight and touch of her mis tress' hand. She only rubbed her cool uoso against Jfrs. Warden's choek and then stood very still. Whom tho unharnessing was accom plished Mrs. Wardn put her arms about Kitty's neck. "Kitty," salt! she, "you aro my ouly hope; Kitty, you must carry baby and mo to tho fort; we shall have to creep along edge of the timber (wo might I'P scon on the trail). Walk with imifilca hoofs, ntlyj save baby and mo." All through the long stai less night the mother, holding her child wrapped elosoly under her cloak, with no rein but tho sllkon niano of Kitty to guide with, rodo for lire. Sho will never forget how quietly tho baby slept, how caret ally tho littlo mare nicked her way through the uudorbrush, looking back now and then as much as to say, "Take heart, day and help are both coming." In the caily morning a company of men fiom thu fort, to the rescue bound, came upon Mrs. Warden. Sho was numb with weariness, faint with the effort sho had made, the strain sho had undcrgono; but her mother-lovo knew no scuso of tired ness "Baby Is nfo and warm under my eloak," she said; "she has been so good, and has nestled and slept all the way," They took tho child from her arms and found that it was dead. FREAKS OF NATURE. A sliong gust of wind blew a Con. ncetleut man off a load of bay into the liver, and ho barely escaped being drownol T.liero is a spring near Stonington, Conn., tho water of which has a peculiar result ou thoso who tlrluk It. Thu water flows from a crack lu a high rock, and the veins of a man drinking from it begin to swell, and he looks ami teals ns though he wero about to burst for ten minutes.

If the color has been taken out of silks by fruit stains ammonia will usually restore tho color. One or twotablespoonfuls of ammo nia added to a pall or water will clean win dows better than soap. To brighten carpets wipo them with warm wator In which have been poured a few drops of ammonia. When acid of any kind gets on cloth ing spirits of ammonia will kill it. Apply chloroform to restoio the color. Grease snots may bo taken out with weak ammonia in water; lay soft white pa per o er and Iron with a hot iron. Keep nickel, silver ornaments and mounts bright by rubbing with woolen cloth saturated in spirits of ntmuoula. A few drops of ammonia in n cupful of warm water, applied carefully, will ro inovo spots from paintings and chrotnos. Old brass may be cleaned to lookllko new by pouring strong ammonia on it aud scrubbing with a scrub-brush; rinse In clear water. Ammonia applied twoorthrco times on a rresh cold soro will kill It. it will drive It awny IT used when the cold soro Is first relt. A tablespoonful of ammonia In a gil Ion of warm water will often restoio colors In carpets; it will also remove whitewash from them.

FISH STORIES. An enterprising fisherman of Glouces ter, Mass., Intends making a trip to Norway in search of cod, which are said to abound there. Tho Inst run of shad will soon ccaso io be a llguro of speech in Massachusetts; the llsh commissioners find a decroase of 00 per cent, in tho catch since 1870. One of tho most wonderful of llshus is tho one bearing the name of tho chlas. modon nlger, or tho great swallower. The manner of feeding Is to grasp a fish by tha tall and proceed to climb ovor It with its jaws. This fish will swallow another one six or twelve times Us own size. A piko was speared tu tho Iowa Hivcr at Harden City. Ou opening It thcro was found a pocketbook containing $05 lu gold, $10.50 In silver, $75 In greenbacks and a certificate of deposit upon the Dank ot Johnstown, la., for $25. A paper in the pocketbook stated that It was tho property of John J. Jones.of Johnstown, l'u. If tho fish swallowed tho pocketbook at Johns town it must have Journeyed through tho Conemaugh River to tho Allegheny, tlionco thrpugh tho latter Into the Ohio, then Into the Mississippi and up tho Mississippi into tho Iowa Itlver. The fast fishes, according to Professor tJL B. floodc, are of pointed build, with clcee lying (Ins, and aro frequently preda cious. Food italics, on the other hand, are often slow and easily caught, aud aro cor respondingly prolific. Tho actual speed of fitlitjeji; not. as yj;t wii jjrmwm init as dol; plilns bavo boon observed to swhu rdiluu and round a steamer going at full speed, their pace Is estimated at twenty miles an hour or more. Tho Spanish mackcrol is one ot the fastest of food fishes. Its body Is conical aud smooth us metal, while In Its motion it cuts tho water Uko a yacht. TRAITS OF GREAT ONES.

Views on Snmtiir ltlMr's lMiicntlouni llllIMr, Wnnainitknr nnd tho Clrorcla l'enplu Chut Wltlt Mom burn Tnllt or Mitt Cnrr'lilor, One of the men to bo seen around tho Capitol building is small of stature, llthuof step, with nn erect carriage and a formidable roll of manuscript undor his nrm. Ho wears a tall silk hat nlso. nnd a look of shrewdness and cunning overspreads his aged face, and his snowy-whlto mustache bristles with de termination. This la Caplnln Codman. The Committee on Merchant Murinu and Fisheries, who has charge of tho mnll subsidy and bounty line, which Is causing considerable talk among ship builders nnd steamship owners, are well acquainted with Captain Codman, but just who and whnt no Is seems to bo puzzling the minds of moro people than tho Tncmbers of tho committee. That ho is n lobbyist of tho shrewdest character has boon established, but ho Is also coming lu contact with mon who know n little themselves. Not a few prominent men who occupy scats In the House aro reaching for their eyes, ready to pull down the lower lids nnd ask Captain Codmnu if ho can per celvo any lingo of greenness about them. Captain Codman comes ostensibly from the ship owners of England rela tive to the stand that committee is on the veigc of taking relative to building Ainciicnn ships and thereby Increasing its revenue ou the matter of subsidy, but that tho wily captain Is hero In tho interest of the English Government to sell off a lot of Its old rusty ships which hnvo lain idle and good for nothing on tho other side. Postmaster-General Wnnamaker is having considerable trouble with the Georgia people. The Ciiitio tho other day published n somewhat acrimonious lutcLvicw between him and Representa tive Carlton over the proposed npoolnt ment of a colored man as postmaster at Athens, In that State. Since tho sev eral colored postmasters have been ap pointed in Georgia, tho -people down thcro nro complaining loudly over these things, and now comes various letters to Mr. Wnnamaker from Georgia mer chants declaring that if he ncrsists in pursuing his present policy they will boycott ids business nnd refuse to buy goods from his Philadelphia house. That house has a large bu-incss in Georgia. Congressman James D. Hichardson of Tennessee, who is a member of tho Committee on Printing, said toa Ciutio rcpoitcrthis afternoon that tho firo at the Government Printing Olllcc Wednesday dcmonstiatcd tho fact that moro tlro-escapcs and additional safe guai ds were imperatively needed. He lavorcd tho erection of tlro-escapcs on every lloor not now provided and ou every side of the building. Congress, ho said, ought to remedy the cyil at once. Thcic is considerable opposition manifested against tho bill leuoitcd by tho Committee on Public Buildings and Grounds to purchase tho stpiaro at tho corner of Ninth street and Penn sylvania avenue for tho erection of the much-needed Postofllco building, lion. J. D. Richardson of Tennessee, the author of the Richardson City Postofllco bill, In speaking of tho subject, 3aid to Tin: Ciiitic reporter to-day that he was sorry tho committee had rcpoited the bill for tho reason that in his opinion it would soon bo passed. It would en gender tho opposition of every citizen opposcu io ino sue selected. ''Time nnd again," said Colonel Rich nidson, "the Houso has passed a bill selecting a site for tho City Postofllco, but It has never reached the President for the lenson that opposition has been strong enough to always defeat auy bill that proposed to locate its site. Tho only way Washington will over secure a new City Postofliec is by thu appoint ment of a commission with full power to act in the matter of location and to hnvo their selection approved by the President. If Washington is to havo tho World's Fir, then, certainly, tho Capital of the nation should have a City PostolUco that will meet the re quirements of the people." In sneaking of the Blair'blll to a Ciiitio reporter Representative Owen of Indiana said this morning thatho did not think the chances of the bill In tho Senate at present as favorable as thoy wero four years ago. "I would, Indeed, feel sorry to secthoBlairblll defeated," said he, "because I regard It as In a direct line toward tho solution of tho race problem. Education Is a great force and Its widespread influence can not be overestimated. You educate tho colored man and you glvo him nn in vincible weapon with which lo defend himself. You enable him to cast an intelligent vote. An election law would causo inoro or less friction lu the South and would not tend to solve tho diffi culty. Some of tho opponents of tho bill say It's extravagant for the Govern ment to spend several millions of dol lars for educational purposes. I say it is not extravagant; it's economy. I am an advocate of tho Blolr bill and I want to sec it become a law." Congressman Thompson of Ohio re ceived n dispatch to-day, Informing him that tho Democrats la tho Legisla ture at Columbus had held a caucus and agreed ou n scheme to rcdlstrict the Stato, which places Thompson and Grosvenor in llio same Congressional district. This is an interesting piece of news for Messrs. Thompson and Grosvenor, and if tho schemo is carried out it will result In n lively contest for tho nomi nation next fall. It may be worth mentioning thai Judgo Thompson is not giving himself any unnecessary concern about the mntter. Ho Is very popular in tho District. Seriatiiry Trnoy Doing Well. It was rumored this morning that Secretary Tracy had had a relapse, but inquiry nt tho Arno, to which ho was lemovcd thrco or four days ago from tho Wliito Houso, showed that thero was no basis for tho report beyond tho fact that ho had had a slight attack of Indigestion.

Put for "a child overworked at school, for a person whose nerve centres aro congested, owing to a persistent mental effort In pre paring for an examination, for such wo must prescribe long walks, tho easily leanicd exercise of rowing, and, feeling better, the old game of leap frog and pris oner's base, running games, anything, lu fact, rather than diilicult exercises and acrobatic gymnastics."

Thcro Is no prospect of tho renewal of the lottery grant In Louisiana. If tho lottery company can secure a grant from tho North Dakota Legislature, it can well afford lo pay tho vast suras which It ie reported to havo promised ou all sides. It looks, however, as If the public fcntiinr.nl which has been aroused will be too strong to bo resisted. Tho Post mnstcr-Gencral puts himself on record as opposed to it, and, perhaps, tho President may follow suit, anil respond lo the nppeal which has como to him from Dakota by issuing his disap proval. The lottery company will have the tight to regard this as ungrateful, however, for Its liberal contributions to tho corruption fund aided materially In tho President's election. Tho members of the National Republican Committee, through whom tho lot tery company's contribution was ob tained, havo tiled to carry out their pait of tho bargain, for all their In llucnco has been exerted to help tho Dakota scheme.

Tho salailcd list of its retainers, retainers for the real or supposed social and po litical Influence which thoy possess, amounts up into many thousands an nually. Tho enormous profits of the concern can be imagined when it is statcd that its owners divide millions annually after paying expenses, for which thcio seems no limit, including also a "blackmailing" dependency of police and other ofllcials which is never satisfied. It will he a blessed thing if this lot lery, which for so many years has fat tened upon the pcoplo of tho United Stales, can flud no place to 'renew Its operations after It Is driven out of Louis iana. But it can bo calculated upon to make u desperate strugglo lo got it new foothold somewhere else it the Da kota scheme falls through, and though the Picsidentnnd tho Postmaster-General may express their dissent many other Republicans, high In place unit power, will give their active aympathy and aid to the cause. This both for fa vors past aud for favors to como. The Louisiana Lottery will claim that lis money elected Harrison, and It would havo been glad in 1881 lo have made a bargain with the Blaino man agers. On tho day after tho election of 1881 a member of tho Republican committee said in New York City in the presenco of the writer, and to one of tho principal owners of the lottery, that if the commlttco had had "JoO, 000 tho day beforo the election thoy could have pulled Blaine through. Tho lottery man replied imme diately: "Why did you not como to mo ? I could havo given it lo you in a minute." This overture was borne in mind, and four years later tho Republi can committee took good caro to open negotiations with so liberal a giver. A Judge Deposed.
