KEEP THE BASOALS OUT.
The Democrats are howling, "Turn the
rascals out!" During the eight years of An
drew Jackson's administration the government-collected
a revenue of $355,182,775.16,
of which $5.53 out of overy $1,000, or a total
of $1,412,387.62, was stolen by dishonest
officials. The same administration disbursed
$223,546,049.41, of which $10.31 out of
every $1,000, or a total of $3,306,236.74, wan
stolen. In Martin Van Bnren'a administra
t ration of four years, $137,094,438.34 was
disbursed at an average cost in stealings of
$21.15 in every $1,000, or a total of $2,899,
653.84. Under Franklin Pierce, who seems to
have had the honesteet set of Democratic office
holders that could be procured, as the rate of
robbery in his time was lower than under
any other Democratic president, $285,638,
875.65 were disbursed, at loss of $5.86 per
$1,000, or a total of $1,674,852.64. Under
the seven Democratic president from Jack
son to Buchanan, inclusive, the average rate
of robbery in making disbursements was a
fraction more than $10.22 per $1,000. The
average rate in making collections was some
thing less, being about $2.14 in every $1,000.
Everybody knows what the record of the
Republican party has been iu this respect.
Under President Arthur the' total loss from
dishonesty in officials has been in collecting
$2,961.62 and in disbursing $1,920.75. Will
it pay to let the Democrats take hold of the
financial affairs of the government now! The
Washington National Republican puts the
case well when it says: The 50,000 expectant
(Democratic) office-holders have very deep
and very empty pockets. The party doctrine
is that the victors are entitled to the spoils.
The $400,000,000 now in the treasury, where
it can be applied to the payment of the na
tional debt, the pensions due our wounded
and disabled soldiers and their widows and
orphans, the defenses of our vast stretch of
sea coast, the building and equipment of a
navy, or to the current expenses of the gov
ernment, is safe in present hands, the people
know. Judged fairly by the record, without
one particle of party feeling or - prejudice,
would it be equally safe in Democratic
hands f Do the people want to take the
chances of a change? Is it not much safer to
make sure that well enough is let alone, es
pecially when that well enough is slowly but
snrely growing better? -
President Barnard of Columbia college,
who has been traveling in Ireland, says that
he did not see the distress he had expected
to find there. ' .
The Russian Nihilists seem to be pretty
quiet nowadays. The coercion act promul
gated in 1881 in order to enable the police to
cope with them has expired, but it is prompt
ly renewed. St. Petersburg and .Moscow
will remain for three years longer under the
exceptional legislation, white for the rest of
the country one year's prolongation is be
lieved to be sufficient. .,
Nearly three hundred stockholders of . a
railroad in New Hampshire have the idea
that they are entitled to the surplus of a mil
lion and a half earned during the last fiscal
year. If the directors think differently, legal
proceedings will be instituted to compel a
dividend. Should this be done, the stock
holders will, of course, discover that they
have no such rights in the premises as tney
The Farmers' club of Chester, England,
recently met to discuss the sparrow pest and
its remedies. One. member- present stated
that one bushel per acre of grain . had been
destroyed by small birds in the country.
The government returns showed that in 1882;
8,003,960 acres of wheat were grown, and in
1883, 2,613,162 acres. From these figures he
had estimated that if the number of small
birdshad been reduced by one-half the sav
ing to the country would amount to $8,850y
450.:. , . -:- ;:
The navy of the United States is not the
only one on which money '- is wasted. " The
English ship Thunderer, magnificent war
ship that has cost about $2,500,000, includ
ing repairs, has done' only about ',. two years'
service since she was launched in 1872. On
her trial trip she burst a boiler and : killed
forty or fifty of the crew, and five years ago
she met with a second accident, . bursting a
38-ton gun and killing and wounding sever
al. These disasters have stamped the Thun
derer as an "unlucky ship,".; and with navi
gators this means enough to keep the power
ful vessel idly rusting, though she . has . no
actual fault. She lies in Malta harbor dis
mantled. . - ' .
Harper's Ferry is to be sold, with the fa
mous little engine house where John Brown
made his final struggle, almost the only
building standing upon the property. It is
said that Washington himself selected the
spot for a national armory, and in 1794 the
government bought 640 acres there, added
310 acres to this, and leased 1,395 acres more.
Shops were at once built, and the making of
muskets began in 1796. The manufacture of
arms was continued there until the rebellion
broke out, when the Confederates captured it
without a blow. It was soon after taken by
the Union forces, but not until after the
more valuable machinery had been moved to
Richmond. Stonewall Jackson recaptured
it in 1862, the federals came in possession
again, and the war ended with the village a
total wreei. The water power is thought by
some to be finest in the world.
National debts are piling up very rapidly.
In 1848 the national debts of the world
amounted to only $8,245,000,000; in 1870 to
$19,150,000,000; while to-day they reach
$27,155,000,000. This increase has been
progressive, growing greater every year. Up
to the time of the French Revolution the
world added only $30,000,000 annually to
its indebtedness. From that lime to the
battle of Waterloo the annual increase was
$200,000,000; to 1848, $300,000,000; while at
the present day it is $525,000,000, so that by
the year 1900 it will owe $35,000,000,000.
The great bulk of this sum has been ex
pended for war. This indebtedness has in
creased during the past thirty years $9,365,
000,000 on account of various wars. Not
withstanding this great indebtedness the
world has mortgaged itself for but little over
nine per cent, of its wealth, the only coun
tries that have exceeded this percentage
being France, Russia, Austria, Italy, Spain,
Portugal, Australia and Uruguay, Portugal
standing in tha worst condition of any.
Great as is the increase of indebtedness, the
increase of wealth is more than four times
as rapid, so that the world is growing richer
all the time and developing more and more
The Bridgeport Standard well says cf
Senator Piatt: Very few senators stand high
er or have won a more deserved reputation
for solid acquirements and sound views on
all matters of public policy than Senator
Orville H. Piatt of this State. An industri
ous, able and conscientious man, applying
himself to the duties of his office with intel
ligence and aptitude, he has won an envia
ble reputation for the thorough and compre
hensive understanding of every question to
which he has given his attention. His great
speech upon the patent laws, the result of
years of practical study and familiarity with
the subject, is acknowledged to be the most
important and exhaustive discussion of the

over epitaphs, might disturb her, but be laid
away to her last sleep under the counter of

To the Editor of the Journal and Courier;
' The question of our publio Green, and
whether there shall be any further encroach
ment upon its territory in the shape of build
ings, is an important one, and deserves the
attention and interest it is now exciting.
But it seems to the writer, judging from the
communications in the newspapers, .that
some neoDle are tzettincr unnecessarily
alarmed. For no one proposes that any
other pudiio ouueungs should oe located on
the Green. And if anyone was so foolish as
to make such a proposition, it would . not
survive one day of the universal ridicule and
condemnation which would be visited upon'
it. : Now, as to the actual proposition or -re
quest made, that the existing church edifices
on the Green be allowed a small . additional
space in their rear for the purposes of en
largement or improvement, it ought to be
decided according to what iB proposed to be
done, and whether the present buildings are
to be made to look better or worse than they
now do. If , as in the case of Trinity church,
the appearance of the edifice is to be great'
improved, bo as to be architecturally and ar
tistically more an object of beauty and
adornment in the public eye than hitherto,
why should anyone object to and begrudge
the small additional space asked for to make
a; great improvement? And if the other
church societies on the Green make but a
similar request to make their existing edi
fices more comely and beautiful than they
now are, but not erect new and separate
buildings adjoining their present ones,
(which would, indeed, create new eye-sores in
the public gaze), let their request be granted
and not opposed. E. T. S.

To the Editor of the Journal and Courier:
After reading the gentlemanly and courte
ous reply of Mr. Phillips the question arose
to our mind, "Is Mr Phillips the Corporation
Counsel?" And is it not also strange that his
wrath and righteous indignation was not
kindled into a flame when Trinity church was
allowed to extend its edifice, and again, as
Mr. Phillips quotes the hackneyed couplet
from Pope to show that "W. F." is like a
rogue that "feels the halter," are we to con
clude that all the members of Trinity church
are - rogues? - Evidently in this case
nV is Mr. Phillips who "draws the
rope." Are we to infer that Mr. Phillips
would like to see all the members of Trinity
and the United churches hung together and
would he be willing to act as hangman?
So far as this practical quotation has any
reference to the gentleman to whom it was
addressed, or bearing on the subject under
consideration, Mr. Phillips might as well have
"Who killed cock robin? .
I, said the sparrow.
With my little arrow
I killed cock robin."

To the Editor of the Journal and Courier:
What a presidential campaign this is get
ting to be! What unaccountable statements
are made about the two leading candidates!
What a quantity of mud is being thrown
from all directions! A stranger among us
would conclude from reading the Register
and Palladium the past week that the Dwight
Place church had been turned into a Blaine
and Cleveland wigwam, where the orator of
the day holds forth on the Sabbath from a
religious standpoint and where, according to
the religiously inclined Register and its ("A
Republican Neighbor's") opinions, under date
of the 22nd. both hold that the
orator has rights as an "American citizen" to
take the stump during the week for a presi
dential candidate, which, to say tne least, is
very obnoxious to nine-tenths of the congre
gation that should be in attendance on the
Sabbath and listen attentively to the exposi
tion of such passages as the following: "Ye
cannot serve God and Mammon," "Whatso
ever ye would that men should do to you do
ye even so to them," "Judge not, that you
be not judged," "Speak evil of no man,"
"He that hath knowledge spareth his words,
and a man of understanding is of an excel
lent spirit," "Let him that stole steal no
more," etc., etc.
How unaccountable tnat tne wigwam is
not packed with front, middle and "back
pew" Republican members, and how unac
countable that the speaker did not know the
cause of so many vacant Beats last Sabbath
after he had published the statement that
Mr. Blaine was a thief and that by his influ
ence and vote he should do all he could for
the election of -MrvCleveland! How unaccount
able the fact that a large number deem
it their right as American citizens to exercise
their privilege to hear a preacher on the Sab
bath who gives "no uncertain sound" Sun
day or Monday! How unaccountable the
fact that so many people have so mnch ad
vice to give the Dwight Place chnreh and so
little by way of attendance and material aid.

A room should only ccsstain as many pieces
of furniture as are necessary for use in that
particular room. Every piece put in for the
purpose of producing an effect is an evidence
of the lack of true artistic instinct on the
part of the mistress. Let every piece of fur
niture in the room be just as handsome as
the circumstances of the family will ailow,
but avoid every attempt at ornamentation
for the mere sake of ornamentation. Can
anything be more tiresome than a wall cov
ered with glaring fans, brackets and cabinets
filled with bric-a-brac, that you know is put
ont for show? Some private parlors produce
on the visitor the same effect produced by a
visit to one of the so-called art parlors in our
large stores. A cabinet containing rare bits
of china or glass or pottery is an ornament
and a means of education; but a cabinet
filled with plates and cups and saucers, that
can be obtained at any pretentious store, De
longs properly in the dining room, where,
in all probability, they would find their prop
er places on the table. Mantels loaded down
with ornaments are as much out of place and
are as great an evidence of poor taste as au
Overt rimmed bonnet. No room is restful that
appears crowded or suggests extra exertion
on the part of the housewife, any more than
an: overheated, over-anxious hostess adds to
the comfort of the guests at a dinner table.
The mere business of living, the hurry and
rush necessary to accomplish the various ob
jects we have in view, make quiet, restful,
healthful homes a necessity of the age. Not
only does this false idea of what is artistic
destroy the true uses of a home, but it ab
sorbs the money that would be otherwise
used in purchasing those things that would
conduce to the moral and intellectual growth
of the various members of the family. How
much better that the children should have
two magazines and a dozen new books in the
year than that the parlor should have a love
ly plush banner embroidered in impossible
flowers, or that a pair of smirking Dresden
figures should adorn (!) the mantel! How
much better to use the old cover on the liv
ing room table and cover the table with good
reading matter than to buy the new cover,
and by that means give time for a nothing-to-interest
feeling and yawns to creep in the
home circle! In how many homes is the
evening looked forward to with a feeling of
dread instead of anticipation,, because the
plush and china ornaments do iot prove an
endless source of interest and conversation!
The Misfortune of Women Workers.
From the Art Interchange.
Most of the shops where decorative and
knitted work is sold are constantly receiving
on sale articles from women who live luxuri
ously and who, anxious for "pin" money,
are willing to sell their manufactures at any
price. The result is that the worker who de
pends upon her labor for support finds her
self compelled to accept a pittance, the prices
being so ruinously cut by these fine lady pi
rates, whose rapacity thus adds to the mise
ries of the honest toiler. Unfortunately the
burden of this unjust and sly competition
falls on those who are least able to bear it.
Women with families of young children or
with invalid relatives, who cannot leave home
for a number of hours every day, and who
are forced to work at some employment
which can be done at home, are the ones who
suffer from the money greediness of their su
perior (?) sisters. The evil is a serious one,
and unless some prompt measures are taken
to lessen or eradicate it, much of the good
which would otherwise result from training
girls in the minor industrial arts will be neu
tralized. The publio is not benefited by
this cheap production. It is the shopkeeper
to whom all the profits accrue, as the retail
price of the goods is none the lower because
women of leisure eut prices. A remedy
which suggests itself is the multiplication
and modification of exchanges for women's
work and decorative art societies where the
publio could purchase good work at fair
prices. Most of the already established as
sociations of this class do not keep enough of
a variety to tempt purchasers, or if they have
an attractive list of goods the prices asked
are altogether too high. The association,
too, is neither regarded nor advertised as a
business enterprise, interest being demanded
for it as a sort of an asylum for women. It
would in the end result better for the associ
ation and for those who have work on sale if
the exchange or the art society were conduct
ed on purely business principles and useful
or ornamental articles sold for a fair price.
If possible, some special line of work, de
signing, painting upon china or canvas, met
al work, preserves or knitted garments)
should be made the leading industry of each
association, so that an extensive reputation
for manufacturing that particular class of
goods could be acquired. Other kinds of
work would not of course be exoluded, but
the association would be known for making
its specialty pre-eminently well. This or
some other remedy will have to be resorted
to if deserving poor women workers are to
be saved from the rapacity of their heartless
well-to-do sister women. -
The Emperor of Germany.
From Blackwood's Magazine.
The emperor looks well on horseback, and
is at home in the saddle, bnt he is not what .
is called a good rider, and takes no special
interest in horses, except as regards military -requirements.
He rides with loose reins, .
letting his steed have its own way and seem
ing to reckon as confidentially on his horse's
good service as on those of the other instru
ments of his will. In former years he has
frequently met with accidents in consequence
of his careless riding. Now his aides-de
camp always keep a sharp lookout before
him when he canters off in his peculiar way,
looking in every direction except where a
careful rider ought to look, viz. , at the road
before him. When he goes across country
the officer who trains the horses for the em
perors special service, and who is an accom
plished rider, habitually precedes him by a
few hundred yards to see that there is no
dangerous ditch or wall ahead; smaller
things the emperor will clear apparently
without noticing them. Extraordinary care
is taken with the training of the horses for
the emperor's personal use. They are always
safe, powerful, intelligent, good-natured ani
mals, generally half-blood, shying at nothing
and requiring scarcely any attention on the
part of their rider. The emperor has a cer
tain liking for manly field sports and is a
good shot, but he is not what is called a
sporting man. His favorite flower is that
most prosaic, pretty, uninteresting corn flow
er, the blue bottle, without any perfume,
but which looks so bright and healthy in a
large field of wheat and so fresh and inno
cent in the hair of a fair young girl. I am
told that the emperor's grandmother had
this same curious taste in respect to flowers.
The emperor is tall and well built and when
he was young had a fine, manly presance.
Though he is now very old he has a won
derfully dignified attitude, and it is astonish
ing as well as fatiguing for those who are
with him to see how long he can stand
without getting tired.
