THE CITIZENS' TICKETS.
The Republican city convention last even
ing did its work skillfully and judiciously.
Since Mr. Trowbridge's letter in which he
declined to enter into a scramble for the
nomination was published the feeling that he
should be nominated has steadily grown un
til it found its fall expression in the con
vention. The primaries in many of the
wards revealed that there was a strong and
general desire that he should head the ticket,
and during the. last few days the opinion
that he would make a good Mayor has been
heard wherever the matter has been talked
about. Mr. Trowbridge needs no Introduc
tion to the people of Near Haven. He is
prominent representative of one of the old
est and worthiest families of tbe town. He
is a well educated, clear headed man. He is
a thorough and successful business man, and
the people of New Haven have reason to be
satisfied with their action in choosing busi
ness men for Mayor. In addition to his
other qualifications for the office for which
he is named, Mr. Trowbridge possesses the
important one of a thorough knowledge of
the way the city business is done and of the
city's needs. This knowledge has been gain
ed by active participation in the work of the
council and the board of aldermen;
he being now the respected and efficient
president of the latter body. He has through
out his term of service in the Court of Com
mon Council shown ability, integrity, good
judgment and a thorough regard for the
eity's interests in dealing with the various
questions that have come up for action. He
has been successful in whatever public duties
he has undertaken. In private life he is
friendly and courteous to all, and has the re
spect of all who know him. If he should
be elected he would take pride in
doing all he could for the oity, and every

For City Treasurer the convention wisely
nominated the present incumbent, Mr.
Welob, and took the same course in- relation
to Auditor. Mi. Lake has made as good an
Auditor as the city has ever had. For City

The town convention was not a very excit

An encouraging crusade against hats and
bonnets has begun in the German, theaters.
Of late theater goers have complained bit
terly that the elaborate head gear worn by
the ladles has interfered with their views of
the stage, and consequently the manager of
the Wiesbaden theater has led the way with
an official circular, politely requesting ladies
in the better class seats to take off their hats
and bonneta. Since then three of the chief
Berlin theaters have also issued a similar
edict. The advertisement of the Olympio
theater. London, announces. "Dress circle

How to get good government in cities is
one of the most important and pressing prob
lems of the time. - The Vicksburg (Missis
sippi) Herald says: Vicksburg needs a simple
busiuess government of a few representative
honest men. Her citizens are entitled to it,
and they can get it when they unite. To get
it they must abandon the system of munici
pal elections root and branch. They must
secure the repeal of all portions of their
charter requiring elections. The simplest
plan is the best. Let the governor be em
powered to appoint five commissioners and
let them be clothed with the power to attend
to the municipal affairs. The whole thing
can be easily arranged and then the cause
will be permanently removed, but not until
then. - It will be hard on the bummers and
strikers, the thieves and thugs, but it will be
a great relief to all good citizens.
The consequences of the attempt to estab
lish the eight-hour system in Wisconsin are
forcibly set forth in the report of the State
commissioner of labor and industrial statis
tics. This movement, which extended
through the winter and the early spring,
culminating in the Milwaukee riots of May
last, was terribly costly. Even to this day,
says the report, "houses remain unpainted
and fences unrepaired; the sewing machine
bought on the installment plan is taken
away; pawnshops have been doing a thriving
business; interest payments have lapsed; in
surance policies have been forfeited; wife
and children are without new dresses; furni
ture has gone to the second-hand store; lot
sales to workingmen 'ceased for weeks and
months; chattel mortgages increased to an
unusual number and domestic hard times
that the public can never see or
know prevailed in many quarters with pain
ful severity." The commissioner places the
number of men deprived of employment at
13,000, and the cost to the State is estimated
The Boston Herald puts it about right
when it says concerning the present condi
tion of the Andover controversy: The claim
of Professor Smyth that the prosecutors have
not made out a proper and sufficient state
ment for his conviction or for the carrying
on of the suit seems to be made on good
grounds. His answer to the board of visit
ors, who are not unwilling to dismiss the
suit on account of insufficient evidence, is a
stroDg and detailed statement of the points
which have been made for his conviction,
and it would seem to be difficult to make
out a case against him or his associates upon
the allegations which have been presented.
Dr. Smyth argues his case like a man, and
affirms his readiness to put everything that
he can in the way of the proper forwarding
of a judgment; but he writes with the con
viction of one who has nothing to affirm or
deny beyond what is already known. It is
yet too early to predict which way this case
will be decided, but it is not hard to see that
there is considerable feeling on the part of
the prosecutors and that the moat will be
made of everything that is not favorable to
Dr. Smyth and fellow professors. The sym
pathies of the outside public are unquestion
ably with the men who are nnder prosecu
tion. RECENT PUBLICATIONS.

has no more ides of swimming at first than

President Cleveland's Dally Routine
How He Eats, Sleeps mud Works.
From Lippincott's Magazine.
President Cleveland rises at half-past sev
en o'clock, dresses and shaves himself, and
is ready for breakfast at eight. He break
fasts en famille and finishes his morning re
past in less than thirty minutes. His break
fast usually consists of oatmeal, beefsteak,
coffee, hot cakes and eggs. He is very fond
of fruit and eats freely of it. He leaves the
breakfast table and goes directly to his office
and begins work without any exercise what
ever, writing letters and looking over papers
until ten o'clock, when the callers begin to
arrive. He then has a siege of a couple of
hours with the statesmen and office seekers,
which lasts until half -past one o'clock, when
he is ready for his luncheon. He eats this
in less than fifteen minutes, and, like his
every day breakfasts and dinners, it is eaten
in the private dining room and the whole
family sit down together. ILV Ident Cleve
land's lunch consists of breaU and butter,
cold meats, a little fruit and a cup of tea.
After he has eaten it he go9s directly back
to his office and works steadily until four.
At this time he goes out o drive in compa
ny with his private secretary, Colonel La
mont. He returns in time for dinner, which
is ready at seven o'clock. He dots not dress
for dinner in the conventional st le except
when he has guests who will appear in even
ing dress. His private dinners are plain.
Wine is served only when there are guests
present who are accustomed to drinking
wine with their meals. He is not so fond of
heer as has been reported by the newspapers,
the total White House consumption of this
article during the past year being not more
than two dozen bottles. Tbe President's
daily dinner consists ot five or six courses;
first there is soup, then fish, then a roast,
followed by game, dessert, frnit and after
dinner coffee. He does not sit long at table,
and immediately on leaving it -he goes np
into the corridors of the second story of the
White Honaa and amokea a cigmr, after
which he goes back to his work. President
Cleveland never Bmokes in his office, and the
only smoking he does is this post-prandial
cigar. He goes to bed abont midnight and
falls asleep as soon as his head touches the
pillow. His system is such that six or seven
hours' sleep is sufficient for him.
The Smallest Paper in the World.
IFrom the Pall Mall Gazette.
If a prize were offered for the smallest pa
per in the world the latest addition to the
Parisian press would stand a good chance.
It is called Le Quartier Latin and its super
ficial area is less than a leaf of the Pall Mall
Gazette. This Insignificant structure, taking
for its title the name of the great literary
and artistic quarter of Paris, announces its
collaboratenrs as "all the students." Though
small, it is excessively bright and full of the
genuine esprit of the quartier.
Its strong feature is mots. Each mot is
signed by the author and preceded with a
little pictorial canard. There are also echoes
from the Boub Miche (Boulevard St. Michel),
sketches of types of the district and letters
addressed to the professors. The editor has
already got into trouble with his staff. The
collaborateurs protest against having their
contributions compressed into so little space,
or, what is worse, crushed out altogether.
They threaten to start opposition, but the
conciliatory editor announces fortnightly
supplements of forty pages made up of over
flow matter. The Quartier Latin sells at one
sou, for it employs the old nomenclature for
Cox and Campbell In the Same Car
IFrom the Washington Post.1
S. S. Cox and Tim Campbell traveled to
gether to New York in the parlor car oEhe
train which left the Baltimore and Potomac
depot at four o'clock Thursday. Since Cox
was appointed United States minister to
Turkey and Campbell was elected to succeed
him in the Forty-ninth Congress these two
honorable gentlemen have not been as much
together. Waggish people have spent the
summer in trying to raise enmities between
them. They were continually telling Camp
bell that Cox threatened to come home
from Turkey and push him ont of the
Eighth congressional district of New York,
and on the other hand they kept Cox en
rapport with Tim's defiance. It was by
chance and not design that the two states
men struck the same train for New York
When they met and saw what was be
fore them Cox looked very unhappy, but
Campbell sat "mown "with his heavy over
coat on, just sufficiently open to reveal his
nsusl white necktie, an unusual roll of
white flannel around his throat and the
usual large diamond stud in the white shirt
bosom, and seemed supremely indifferent to
or unconscious of Mr. Cox's presence there.
Campbell chatted and laughed with some
friends whom he met in the ear, but Cox,
not knowing any of his fellow passengers,
stood outside on the platform in the cold ap
parently musing on his nnhappy lot and
wondering if he should not wait for the next
train. He was still standing on the platform
with his hands in his trousers pocket, and
was faintly whistling a doleful tune when
the train moved out of the depot. Specta
tors wondered how the two would get along
together in that parlor car on the six or sev
en hours' journey to New York with only
two or three travelers to relieve them of each
From the 8U James Gazette.
A historic spot, noteworthy in the early
life of mediaeval Germany, is doomed to dis
appear beyond recognition. Ingelheim was
a favorite residence of Charlemagne, where
he built a great palace and monastery, and
laid ont pleasure grounds. From the hill
where he had fixed his own dwelling he re
marked the early disappearance of the win
ter snow from the Johannisberg and the
alopea of Rudesheim, and he had Tines
brought from Italy and planted in these plac
es which instinct told him would produce
good wine. This was the first introduction
of the vine into Germany.
Few remains of the buildings now exist.
What their extent must have been may be
inferred from the fact that from Ingelheim
hill to the Rhine is fully two miles, and yet
the river is said, in all accounts, to have
washed the palace walls.' It is this hill and
immediate neighborhood which is known
among tbe people by the name "Charle
magne's Hall." Some pillars were standing
in the last century; hat they bat been long
since scattered, TJne of them is preserved at
Mayence. A great champagne grower, M. de
Barry, pu -chased the property - me years
since. But he died; and it has passe 1 into
the hands of a limited liability company who
have had the place surveyed and purpose
letting it in small pea-ant holdings.
