Just why It Is tbchC terrible things does not nppenr, although the World asserts It as nfnrl, Inasmuch as .Mr. Cutter Harrison Is uu honest aud capable mnn, a good Re publican, and not objectionable to thu people of his section. llucxtnsks why Benjamin Hanlson luvvauUU his family with an ofllce Which belongs to the people.

New York maintains gallantly her i emulation as thu meanest city on tho untlncnt. Some million!) of dollars xveie spent In that city by outsider? during the centennial celebration, aud irjuw York iouUI well afford to expend large sums In preparation foe such nn rytnt. What was tho actual outlay? The Slate appiopiiatcd 1200,000, tho ity $75,000, and the remainder was made up by miles of seats, ball and bun ciuet tlckils and slmllai privileges, nnd by popular Rubsciiptlon. What did the popular Mtbfccilptlon amount to? .fito $13,000! Tho pitiful showing of centennial euWriptlons but ndds to tho lecord nl nady made by the richest city on tho Continent as being the meanest one. Cliicugimns, under similar ciicuin (itnee, would have contributed thiee times as much -as did tho New Yorkers, and would havo thought nothing of It. liven Bt. Louis or Cincinnati would have, beaten the iccord just made. It Is but the Btory of the Qrant monu ment, of half an hundred similar ex hibitions of nlggardncss, retold. Many ri h New Yorkcis claim with pride a descent from tho Dutch mnrkct gwdmcH and shopkeepers, who found jlonliatlnii Island a good placo of resi lience. From those market-gardeners and ehopltcepeis they seem to have Inherited nt least ono trait an exceed ' ing thrlftlucsa, The Baltimore and Ohio advertises that on nud after Way 1, it will discon tinue its sleeping car service between Indianapolis and Washington. This twould seem to Indlcato that oil tho swell Indlaulans havo got ofllce, and !l0o who want tho residue, as it were, can travel about as well In nn or iTInnry roach as In an upholstered, gold mounted Pullman. Tho Indlanlan would rather walk to Washington, how 'ver, than not get n Government Job. J's tho proper thing to put n elassl-Jkd-tcrvlcc Democrat out of ofllco and 1111. his placo with q Republican, partic ularly If he wns appointed uudcr Cleve land. Tho law favors It, because tho JjwJwm YloMcdf of courso, when tho flssrsiftj Republican bad to go out to make u xninncy, and now icstorlng the Repub limn Is dimply satisfying "outraged" law, so to speak.

Mr. Krlcceou was never foolish enough to claim to lie the author of the great Imcntlon, hut, on the other hand, he, very curiously, never lonlradlc'ed the ccucral belief that to him belonged the credit, There Is simply no qWstiuu as to the facts. Tin: New Yoiik .S'iiii complains lweuuu Itlkbop l'otter said Andrew JaekMiunas vulgar, and sajs vulgailty Is nkln to hase mts. Thu .Sim misinterprets the Illstiop. In the vernacular of the swell circle which thu Mlshop adorns "vulgarity" doesn't mean what the .Vim thinks It does. It means that If Andrew Jackson Were living hi Xcw York to-day he loutd not get Into thu circle of tin? "Four htiudred," unlcM he broke In. There Is no denying that "Old Hickory" was vulgar In tint sense, for ho ate with his knife, wiped his mouth on the tablecloth and drank his colTeq out of the saucer. In most othtr respects (leneral lackson was all right. Mn. Ci.evm.ami Is having occasion once more to think mean things of American newspapers. The editor of the JleadUgUI, country weekly in North Carolina, writes a card to say that Mr. Cleveland cannot dim the Interview reported In the Head- tifiht.

BOOKS AMD WniTBrtSi More nitd more come to tho desk of the reviewer books having tho Chicago imprint. They arc, as a rule, paper-coveicd, but many uf them are good, and then; comes occasionally a publication as picteutlous In tho matter of binding and as notable lu quality and name of author as any printed any where. The mibstanco of It all is that Chicago Is coming rapidly to the front as a publishing rcntto, and Is becoming naturally, one of the literary rcntros as well, borne strong men In the world of lettcis, men who hnvo already done striking work, and who will be bolter known with each year that passes, are Included In tho Chicago gioup.

On a nowspapcr less bold and Just than tho newspaper on which he writes, In its editorial tone, he would be almost a bull in a china shop, lie Is at home where ho is, but there cannot bu his only field. E. J. McPhclIra, dramatic critic of thu Chicago Tribune, Is one of tho Chicago writers who should do moro work for the magazines. Ho can do wonderful work a choice poem, n re view which will command attention, a diamatlc story when he cares to do so, but he doesn't often care to do so.

How much of his time will in the futurobo devoted to dlvoicc suits or ballot-box cases and how much to the muse nono snvo himself knows; probably he doesn't know himself, Chicago has other writers who havo their squlicshlp won, and who yet will have their spurs.
