the drink traffic; to advise upon the question or
more stringent enactments for the suppression of
drinking and selling intoxicating liquors; to take
into consideration the willful neglect and refusal or
executive officers of towns, cities and counties to

to consider any and all questions bearing upon
these subjects. .

should vote for none but honest men and honest
officials to enforce the law’s; and that obedi

people, they should demand a thorough, impartial
and non-partisan enforcement ol law against the
dram shop, as well as all other laws for the protec

THE BLACK LIST.
Here is the list in black letters of the men
who, by an unhappy accident being in
important official positions, deliberately
abused their trust, perverted the laws which
it was their sworn duty to execute justly and
impartially according to their spirit and in
tent, who sought by wicked trickery to
thwart the will of the people as expressed at
the polls aud who not only brought dis
grace upon themselves but smirched the
fair fame of the State whose officials they
unfortunately were. Their names aud places
should be known of all men that they
may receive the just punishment of being
regarded as infamous by all good citizens
aud that the rising generation may learn by
their example the folly of being wicked.
To this list is appended the names of such
other men as have taken offices to which
they knew they were not elected, and who
become equally guilty by taking advantage
of the vile conduct of the original malefac

The Inviolability of Telegrams.
So far this session Congress lias distin
guished itself by what it has not done, and
has thereby saved the country from the in
fliction of some injury even if its want oi
action has postponed or defeated some good
measures. Not a few mischievous bills
have been introduced, and these we shall be
glad to see suffer the fate of the royal Yorl

in the Tower. Other bills deserve prompt
consideration and speedy passage. Among
the most meritorious offthese worthy bills ii
that one providing for the inviolability/>!
For some years now the custom of seizing
upon telegraphic despatches and subjecting
them to the scrutiny of a legislative commit
tee has been a scandal. Everybody depre
cates the exercise of the power; many dis
pute its right; but in default of expres:
statutory provision to the contrary the powe.
has been repeatedly asserted to the hardsliij
of all having occasion to use the wires. I
is contended, certainly with great show ol
' reason, that‘ the fourth amendment to the
Constitution, in respect to the right of tin
people to be secure in their papers agains
unreasonable searches and seizures, applie
to telegrams as fully as it applies to corres
I pondence transmitted through the mails
; and that a despatch should be as inviolabl
i as a letter. The fact that a third person
the telegraphic operator, becomes possessei
of a knowledge of the contents of the des
patch, does not alter the equities of the case
l for such knowledge is necessary to trans
mission. Yet despite these consideration
legislative committees have not hesitated t
® demand from telegraphic companies the er
6 tire number of dispatches passing betwee
7 given points during a specified time, an
f have looked through the telegrams at thei
£ leisure, perusing and making what use the
saw fit of the communications of busines
men, of the fond foolishness of impatien
lovers, and of tlie interchange of family and
social messages. The practice is an outrag
eous one, capable of infinite abuse, and
should be at once discontinued. No one
cares to throw obstacles in the way of the
production of proper evidence to further the
ends of justice. The only object aimed at is
to protect confidential communications by
telegraph as confidential communications
by mail are now protected. The one is as
important and should be as well-guarded a
medium of correspondence as the other. In
many emergencies it is the only possible
medium. The Supreme Court of the United
States has decided that letters and sealed
packages in the mail are as fully guarded
from examination and inspection, except as
to their outward form and w eight, as if they
were retained by the parties forwarding
them in their own domiciles. Tbe constitu
tional guarantee of the right of the people to
be secure in their papers against unreasona
ble search and seizures, extends to their pa
pers thus closed against inspection, and
wherever they may be. Whilst in the mail
they can only be opened and examined un
der like warrant issued upon similar oath or
affirmation, particularly describing the thing
to be seize 1, as is required when papers are
subjected to search in one’s own household.
No law of Congress can place in the hands
of officials connected with the postal service
any authority to invade the secrecy of letters
and such sealed packages in the mails; and
all regulations adopted as to mail matter
must be in subordination to the great princi
ple embodied in the fourth amendment of
Similar protection is asked for telegrams,
and it is in order to secure tneir protection,
now so heedlessly denied, that the following
bill has been introduced into Congress by
Senator Saulsbury of Delaware:
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Repre
sentatives of the United States of America in Con
gress assembled. , ,
Section 1. That all telegraph messages delivered
for transmission to any telegraph company availing
itself of the provisions of Title 0 5 of the Revised
statutes and copies thereof made by such company
at the place of destination, or at any intermediate
point, shall be deemed to he private papers of the
senders and receivers of such messages, and shall be
protected from unreasonable search and seizure ami
from production as evidence in individual and legis
lative proceedings to the same extent as letters sent
by the United States mail.
Title 65 of the Revised Statutes of the
United States, referred to in the foregoing,
is the Act of Congress of July 24, 1866, giv
ing to telegraph companies which accept
the conditions of the same, the “right to
construct, maintain aud operate lines of tel
egraph through and over any portion of the
public domain of the United States, over
and along any of the military or post roads
of the United States,” etc.
The bill ought to have a prompt passage,
and we hope to see every vote in the Maine
delegation recorded in its favor.
The exposure of the dangerous secret so
ciety known as the B. P. L. has created a
profound sensation, and honest citizens aie

government took timely measures to guard
the capitol against the attack of these armed
bands. The Lewiston Journal puts the
membership of the B. P. L. in this State at
five thousand, and says the circles have been
exceedingly active during the last two
months. This statement agrees with the
information in possession of the Pbess.
The New York Tribune thinks thejMaine

they attempted to steal a Northern State.
Then their failure would not have been
quite so brilliant.

The Capoul Bang.
London Correspofidence San Francisco Chronicle.
A now style ot dressing men’s hair is raging
at prosont in Paris, and has already shown
signs of existence in this city. The new abom
ination is called the “Capoul bang” from hav
ing been first inflicted upon human sight by
the reigning favorite tenor in Paris—Capoul.
A few weeks ago an employe of one of the Eng
lish banks in the city roturned from a visit to
Paris, and with his hair cut a la Capoul. Be
fore he could be killed he taught the style to a
fashionable barber in this city. Slowly but
surely, like the advance of all dread infections,
the custom has been spreading until there is a
great danger tiiat, unless soma warlike meas
ures are resorted to at once the presence of tho
Capoul bang, accompanied by something in
male attire, may soon appear unmolested at
theatres and other places of resort.
That it may be recognized at sight and
frowned down, a detailed description of tho
disease is hereby presented as obtained from
the barber who is still unmolested, spreading
the seeds of contagion. Tho hair is cat

head, and up to tho suture annex

That portion of tho parietal bones and the rear
portion of the frontal is left comparatively

dering the frontal bone and covering the seat
of intellect (so called) is cut neither short nor
long, but strikes a happy medium between the
length obtaining on the occipital and parietal
regions. The hair having been properly cut,

mences. The short, rear portion is necessarily
left uncombed. It is oiled to an appearance ni

It is the existence of a traditional code of
manners that makes social intercourse in
France smooth and exhilarating, and its bright
polite, appreciative spirit is the result of train

catching. It has been noticed that English
people are more genial on the continent than
at home, and it is amusing enough to mark the
thawing process going on. I remember during
my stay at a French hotel, watching thebe
havior of a British family at the diurnal gatli"
ering at the table d’hote, the gradual unbend,
ing of the carriage, the loosening of the locked
tongue. A visitor at the hotel fell ill, the
English family followed the example of the
French and made daily inquiries for the inva
lid, and lent him books. Had the scene been
laid in England these civilities rnigh t tit ver

withheld such expressions of sympathy toward
one not introduced. The unlucky side of the
national trait is that it chills .those who would
fain work up against it and seek to establish a
more genial and humane relationship between
strangers; the notion that their politeness
might be construed by the objects of it into an
attempt to force themselves upon their acquain
tance, and the rebut! this would inevitably
meet, repels them. “I am fast becoming as
rude as my neighbors. The next time I meet

our fault. Women are a great civilizing
agency of tho world, and if we are indifferent
to these same “small sweet courtesies,” then
the fountain-head must dry up. There is a
story told of General Lamoriciere, who in the
famous June days of 1848 was fired at. The
shot missed, and the general drew his sword
and turned on his would-be assassin, when,
seeing it was a woman, lie sheathed his weap
on and raised his hat. This story forcibly re
curred to me tho other day when in an art
studio, where several ladies were painting, a
young man entered, and kept his hat on ins

the young women assembled not of his set, and
therefore unworthy the homage of a hare head.
Bell’s Life in London.
[From All the Year Round.]
It is not many years since Bell ruled the sta
ble, and still more tlie pugilistic mind with a
rod of iron. The representative of Bell not
unfrequently filled the post of stakeholder, or
umpire, or referee, or whatever it may he at
prize fights and was the only person on tho
ground of whom tho ruffians assembled stood
in awe. Only once was the respect due to
Bell’s representative forgotten. A more than
usually blackguardly specimen of a pugilist,
acting as second to a brother rough fighting in
the ring, not only disputed a decision of Bell,
But did there and then strike his representa
tive. For a moment tho whole “ring side,” as
I hear the ruffians assembled on such occasion s
were collectively called, the whole ring side
stood aghast; and then public opinion asserted
itself, and a thousand pairs ol biceps swelled
to avenge the insult. But Bell’s representa
tive said “Let tho fight go on,” and it wont on
to tho end, by which period tho rash man who
had struck him felt a sickening horror creep
in" on. The furies were already tugging at his
heart strings and he sought everywhere for the
injured Bell, who had gone away .quietly
wrapped up in his dignity and what he loved
to call his “upper Benjamin.” Next day the
penitent called at the house of Bell, hut too
late—tho fiat had gone forth- liis doom was
It seems that his representative on return
ing home after receiving the blow iu question,
laid the matter before his colleagues, who for a
long while absolutely refused to credit the as
tounding intelligence. There was of course no
precedent, and ingenuity went to work to de
vise such a doom for the offender as should
make generations of pugilists yet unborn to
shako in their fighting boots. At last Bell
spake. Tho offender was henceforth dead. No
mention of his name should occur even as an
advertisement in tho great sporting organ of
the dav, and it was so. The man was forgot
ten in a twelvemonth, and vainly haunted the
liars ot the sporting public houses at which it
had uroviottslv been his wont to describe him
self as “ready or “to bo beard 01. men
knew him not. It was of no use bis wanting
to fight anybody. No brother pugilist would
fight a man whose participation would prevent
Beil from taking the slightest notice of the
combat. He tried sparring at benefits; his
name was always excluded from tho list. Ho
tried to get up a benefit for himself. The ad
vertisement was refused. He was dead as
Queen Anno. What became of him is not
known. It is supposed, however, that ho was
at last driven to extremities, and went back to
work at his calling, for the world pugilistic

A Sturdy Emperor.
(Pall Mall Gazette.]
Nicholas had an imperial way of meeting dan
gers, he marched straight up to them. One
day he heard that a market riot had broken
out, and that the populace had risen against
tho inspectors and 'lie “men in blue,” or gen
darmes. The Czar jumped into his sleigh,
drove straight to the scene of tho conflict, har
angued the rieters, and called upon the ring
leaders to give themselves up. The ringlead
ers surrendered without a murmur, and were
probably all transported, for the Czar was tic
sentimentalist, and showed little maguanimt
itv in dealing with rebels. On another occa
sion Nicholas heard that a professor of tho
University of St. Petersburg was conspiring
against his life, proof of this offence having
been obtained through letters seized at the
post office. The Czar wrapped himself-tn hit
furred cloak and set out on foot to call upon
the professor who almost swooned at tliesiglii
of him. “Shut the door," said the Emperor
quietly, as lie walked in. “Tell me who you:
accomplices are and give me all your papers
or I shall have you knouted.” A Sovereign o;
tiiis sort was quite fit to hold iiis own over £
nation of slaves;and it is no wonder that the
homage bestowed upon him was always mosl
fulsome. Tile Russians felt that they had in

Alexander II., unfortunately for himself,
began his reign by estranging the nobility; ami
when ho had made himself popular with the
lower classes by the emancipation of tho serfs,
lie tried to get reconciled to the aristocracy by
keeping down the people. This vacillating
polioy pleased nobody; and now the Czar i.
trusted neither by the upper nor the lowei
class. Tho former think him weak and tin
latter disingenuous, whereas he is simply be
wildered; and yet tho name of Czar has sucl
magic in Russia still, that if Alexander II. hat
the nerve to show that he did not care for as
sassins the attachment of his people wouh
probably afford him a better guard against tin
Nihilists than any which the police can fur
nish. It all comes to this, that in a despoil
state a sovereign must prove that he seta ligh
store by his life: when lie is self confident hi
people will confide in him; when lie trembles
or appears to tremble, his subjects will fee
their faith in him shaken, and will not tliinl
his cause .worth serving, since he himself seem
to distrust it._
It is work, work, work with us, until veril;

In Mediaa Res.
“Huine have greatntss thrust upon them.”
That is precisely what has happened to our
little city of Augusta. Sho awoke a few morn
ings ago and found herself /n-famous. As wo
Augustans sit at our coffee, the great New
York and Boston dailies before us, with their
darning head-lines and startling announce,
ments, “Intense Excitement Prevailing,’’ “Tho
City Quiet To-Day,” etc., wo wonder what city
they are “alluding to in their remarks.” The
country ought to know that tho people of
Maine get mad, now and then, in a decorous,
orthodox way, but excited—never. I have
walked the streets and conversed with the
“masses” quite as much as was becoming in a
“wicked Maine clergyman,” and am bound to
depose that the aforementioned masses have
simply “got their grit up,” and have sworn by
the gum on their great pine-tree, “this thing
shan't go through." It must be admitted that
this oath for confirmation was uttered with
firmly adjusted molars, and a certain flinty ex
pression of the eye which, in Maine, signifies
that something or somebody is in extremis, or
about to bo. In this case it has proved to be
our Fusion brethren. At this moment, net
many rods from my study, is assembling a for
lorn body of men to enact the one or two re
maining scenes of a play that began in deep
tragedy, but, in violation of all rhetorical and
poetical ru’i ■. is ending in a broad farce.
They arc playing at Legislature, while we Re
publicans, “wicked clergymen” and all, stand
round about laughing at them. Without a
quorum, without a treasury, without an execu
tive officer, thero they sit, helpless, conscience
stricken, covered with ignominy, a gazing
stock for gods and men.
It is an ill wind that blows nobody any good,
accordingly, we “Maine clergymen” have been
casting about us to discover the good that this
“Sarsar wind of death” may have dispensed.
First and foremost we have observed with joy
the sweeping revival that has passed through
me euiwruu Miuiiuiuo va ~ ..
brethren. What carefulness it lias wrought in
them, what clearing of themselves, what in
dignation, yea, what vehement desire, yea,
what zeal, yea, what revenge! Who would
not be a country parson in Maine to be lectured
by the Boston “Post" and the “Globe”! We
innocent clergymen, seeing that poor old Gar
celon, his Council and his co-parceners, repre
senting neither wealth, culture, social or polit
ical influence, religion or common morals,
were engaged in a huge villainy, did lift up
our voices, like faithful watchmen, as we sup
posed. When, lo, gentlemen In Boston, New
York, the middle and the far west, even from
the Pacific coast, began to pour their “sweet
ness and light” upon us. We who were upon
the ground and knew our men (I speak where
of I do know) were greatly perplexed to learn
that we were making war upon the very elect.
These foreign protestations breathed such pi
ous zeal for “the purity of our clerical robes,"
for “the honor of God’s holy house,” for “the
dignity of our sacred calling,” that our eyes
were opened to a fact which this ill wind, a
regular down-easter has cleared to the whole
country. Whatever may be said of the Dem
ocratic party, we “Maine clergymen are con
vinced that Democratic editors, in the lump,
are very disinterested, zealous, devout souls.
We ministers commit our little crusade to his
tory backed by the decision of the Supromc
° Another thing wo have learned from the
wind alluded to above is that wickedness af
ter all, is not as “smart” as goodness. *» hen
we first set out to corner these wily gentlemen
it seemed very much as if wo had
hunting in a stage-coach. While wo were
lumbering along the king s highway in the
good old Constitution, these nimble sinners
went skipping away, ’cross lots, over law and
gospel. We thought the decision of the Su
preme Court would head them off, but they
“took it” as lightly as a fox would take a stone
wall. But they were too smart for each other.
First “eminent counsel” collared the poor old
Governor on his way to Portland, brought him,
vi et armis, to the State House, compe led him
to submit the subject to the Court. Then this
same poor old Governor thought he would trv
his hand without “eminent counsel, and with
his expiring executive breath appointed as
commander-in-chief our brave
President of Bowdoin, Goneral Chamberlain,
thus, at one fell swoop, turning the conspiracy
bodily over to the grasp of lav., ''as ever a
neater bit of poetical justice.' So, according
to Carlyle, Garcelon “being a nonentity van
ishes into the great inane,” and Chamberlain
being a man takes the neck of this bogus legis
lature between his thumb and huger, anil says,
“Walk softly and circumspectly, gentlemen, or
off goes your head.” , . .

ing strangled by the slow and sure process of
law when you consider what meu have had it

New England Mines.
A Portland letter to the Boston Advertiser
says: The rich discoveries of precious metals
recently found in Maine are exciting a deep
and wide-sproail interest. The bare mention
of ricli mineral deposits would have caused a
, few months.ago an incredulous smile; but that
the rocky coast of Maino protects vast beds of
silver, gold and lead is now proved beyond a
doubt, and capitalists arc fast realizing^ that it
is not necessary to go into the far \V est in
search of safe mining investments. The busi
ness men of Portland were very slow to bc
licve that any paying mines could he found m
tlieir State, owing to the fact that many Maine
men had lost heavily in Western mines, but to
day many of her wealthiest and shrewdest
merchants arc heavily interested in the Acton
mines, situated in the town of Acton, about
ono hour’s ride from Portland on the Roches
ter Railroad. There are now four mines in
Actou controlled by Portland parties-tlie
Acton, Forest City, Portland Actou and Bos
ton Acton. The last assay from the Acton
mines was of GOO pounds gross ore, giving $45
in silver, the net profit of w4iich would he
about $56. In addition to the silver there
were valuable quantities of galena an l other
: minerals. Further cast in the State are the
■ mining regions of Blucliill, Gotildsborough,
1 Sullivan, Clierryficld and Franklin. These all
i contain first-class mines; among them may be
mentioned the Bluehill, Clark, Atlantic, Sul
1 liyan, Bisbee, Preble, Favorite, Meraucy and
Grant, all of which have strong organizations
and heavy capital. On the shore of Taunton
r in the town of Franklin is a district called
- Egypt, which is very heavily mineralized, and
l in which are several fine mines, noticeably the
l Robert Emmett, Hagan and Clark. The lat
ter, on a surface assay, gave a total of over S42
1 in silver, lead and gold, which is unusually
high for an assay taken from the surface, and

d them the Mineral Hill, situated in East Wake
, field, and the Ammonousuc and Gardner
p Mountain copper mines in Bath, in the Gard
t ner Mountain region. These are all consider
ed first class mines, and the stock is gradually
rising. Some of the heaviest owners of Am
monoosuc confidently expect that it will reach
i- par within a few months. To suppose that all
l the Maine and New Hampshire mines are

jority of them will he dividend paying mines

u ability and integrity, and it is not proposed
l- that they get into the hands of speculators,
s but, if possible, to push them through to the
s place they deserve, that of being great bullion
