The Teare Journal is for Hancook for President. declaring "that if Gen. Hancock is as aeptable to other portions of the Union, as we belisve him to be In Louisiana, Missis sIppI and Texas, he will be nominated without doubt." The Points Coupee Pelican trusts that "the Legislature will not adjourn without making roison or eolooa survey of this State. It may be beet to make an appropriation, and require the Agrloultural and MechanIcal Col lege to detail one of its professors to act as State geologist and make the survey de sired. The Tensaw Journal is in favor of the Sun day law, declaring that "it will effect a great deal of good throughout this State, particau larlyn non-inoorpoated places where it is noparticular person's business to suppress the drunkenness and rowdyism incident to the selling of whisky and card playing on Sunday, instaonee of which wet have seen here in St. Joseph, when it was d osrcely lit for gentlemen to pass along the levee, much less so for ladies and children." The Gretna C.urier approves of Mr. Faulk ners poll tax bill, and says: "As this tax is devoted to the education of youth It is highly important that there should be a law which would insure its entire collection. Under the present system it is paid only by property owners, and thousands of dollars are lost an nually. Thiis s a greast loss, because It limits theeducation of our children. The passage of Mr. Faulner's bill would undoubtedly re celve the hearty approval of every good citi men in the State." The Baton Rouge Herald considers that the excuse made by the Bepublican members of the Legislaturesuspended- or sending that Kellogg memorial to Congress, "that they were not aware of the purport of the memo rial at the time of the signing, is too slim an excuse for any man of ordinary intelligence to accept as satisfactory in the defense of their aection. It is, in oureetimatlon valuable testimony In favor of Judge Spoford and aganst Kellogg--sufficiently so to unseat the latter and swear inthe former as the right ful United States Senator from Louisiana." The Lincoln Sentinel has no particular choice for Preesdent, but announces that it is bitterly opposed to Tilden. It says: "Hen dricks ad Thurman have been leess promi meat than Bayard, but as Bayard stock seems tobe declling, it may bethat the prospects of the others will grow. It re mains to be seen what the Cinoinnsti conven tion will do. We do not pretend to forecast the result, but whatever is done, we do hope that Tilden will not even be seriously oonsid ered by that convention. Give us either of the other men named-give us any other goodl mn-but do not ask us to support Samuel J. Tilden." romm tare mamme s the Emsem. Nxwrta, N. Y., October 20, 287. H.H. Warner & Co..

He invited the lead ers of the Citizens' Protective Union to meet the leaders of the Workinagmen on the Sand Lots for an exchange of views promising them a respectful hearing. He also informed his followers that the objects of the Citizens' Union had been misaoprehended; that they intended to use the association for the amelioration of the condition of the city. for the good of the la boring classes and the restoration of pros perity; that some unscrupulous men had taken advantage of the movement to create the im pression that violent measures against the Workingmen were intended, whereas nothing of the kind was meant.

Telegraph Wres. [St. Louis Times.] In the city of Paris there is not a telegraph or telephone wire above ground. In 1877 there were thirt-nine miles of wire laid under ground in that city in iron pipes, and eighty miles were ran through the sewers and cata combs. The same system of putting the wires under ground is practiced in London, and with the most satisfcto result. The city of Philadelphia has recen adopted the plan of puttiog the wires under the ground in lead or iron pipes, filled with oil, and the insulation secured by this system is, it is said, found to be perfect. mai Juteleuas Prienls.
