Thc souroes of Mr. Vroomans strongbh are some
what unliko those from which Mr. Faf-etfc de

is proud to be known a* a plain buslne* man.
He has a muhitude of warm friends all through
thc State. and thej will not only vote for blm,
but work dillgently for his eloction. Tho
strenpth 0f the Kepublican ticket does not lie in

pj is betoming more and more evident from day

rrsn thixgs.
This week begins the last month of tho cam
paign, tbe electlon tiking pbbOB on the 3d of
NovemTTei'. The time which remains is long
enough to insure a great victory for the Rcpub
!ic;iii partv, but it is not too long. For much
remains t'o be done. The potcnt arguments
upon which our party so coniidently and so
justly re!ics for success at the polls havo yet
to be brought home to the intolligenco and the
conscience of all the voters. Arrangements
have vet to be perfectcd for getting out a full
vote ia eveiy oohool district from Long Island
to Buffalo. and, in some counties, for guarding
against fiauds upon the ballot-box. All this
work is vitally impoitant, all of it is in progres*.
all of it otight to be pushed vigoronsly during
thc rcst of the ahort campaign. The State Com
mittee is hard at work and so are the county
committcos, the clubs and the other orgamza
tions designed to oonserve the party's wclfare.
If they all contlnue to do their best until tbe
close of tlie canvass Senator Fassett will becomo
Governor Fassett. and thc Legislature of 1892
will be Kepublican in both its branches.
The political eituation to-day is certainly full
of encouragempnt, The tide is with thc Kepub
lieans. Mr. Fassett is stcadily growing in pop
ularity. liis spceehes have mado an excellent
inipres?ion, have greatly strengthened him and
the whole State ticket. His prosentation of the
bMMM which are at the foro in New-York havo
BBBB cJear and forcible and stamp him as a born
leador. Until the fight ends he will contlnue
un the stump doing valiant service for the Ke?
publican oatis?. Mr. Vrooman, our nominee for
Lioutenant-Governor, and our other candidates
upon thc .State ticket are also gaining friends
Bi the people become better acquaintcd with
them. Add to this that the Kepublicans havo
made a record at Albany which. the moro it is
studied and compared with the Dcmocratic
reoord, the more it commends the Fassett ticket
to the regard of level-headed men, and it is
evident that our party friends have good rcason
to ft-el that this is going to bc a Kepublican
year in the pivotaJ state. Ncrerthclcss, thero
ia dangprin this checnul outlook. lt may Ireed
(iver-cofifidonce, and over-conlidence invites de
feat. Our opponrnts hare put up a weak ricket.
Tammany Hall is responsibic for lta head, and
Li,^aM lt should be sueccssful Tammany would
be a potent factor at Albany, thc power behind
tho Executive Chair. This weak ticket stands
upon a weak platform, largoly made up of fahe
pjptCBOCn. Still, it woiild bo folly to losc sight
of the fact that the Democracy, in apite of lta
weak Tammany-ridden. ticket, in spite of its
discreditable platform, In epita of its scandalm:*
iccord in the Lxecutive Chambcr and iu the
Legislature, is a powerful, resourceful encniy.
Long intrenched in powor, the Democrats poj.
8688 the BdvantBfB whicb the "ins" have, and
all the ]>cmocratic otfices, wo may be sure, will
be turned into rccruiting stations for the benetit
of Mr. Flower. We may be sure, hesides, that
the contcnts of that nullionaire's big bar'l will
bo fieey dispensed, and that thc saloons, as
ibiial, will raise a big fund which will be turned
over to the Deuux-ratic Committee to be used
in the purchaso of votcs.
lt would bl a Rreat mistako for thc Ropub
Jicans in any of the counties to ignore these con
sidoiations or under:ate their significance. Thero
is no reaaea wbj they should disooarafni Bepab
liOBBB, B008 whatcver. Bat they should servo
the excellent purpOM) of preventing over-conii

Iaord Stanley can do similar thin^'s to Mr. Ab?

Mercier's guilt or iimocence is a small mattcr
in ooinjim-on with this aesertion of autocraric
Closo on the heels of the scandalous vote ex
onerating Sir Hoctor Langevin, and the equal
lv acandaloua effort to whip Mr. Mercier out of

reftisal to permit an inve?tigation of the chargos
formallr prescnted in lVHamr-nt against Mr

being a mediiim for the collection of carn

The wranglo among the Democrat.s of Ohio has
gon" so far that it is formally odmltted ln 9 daO
jatch to" The New-York Time "fro;n (Vunibus.
This dispatch in obviously in thc intores; of Con
gn>sm?n Mills and Harter. and is intcndcd to ba
I BCBthing arraignment of Oovernor (Jamnboll.
the candidat4\ and his ftiends. Thus, Govcrnor
Campholl had remarked, rcgarding the rcsolu
tfOfl in the platform which advocatcs unlimifed
coinage of flflvar, that ho would " ohanco it" ; bat
this dispatch gives him a deadly thrust, by aayiflg
that it " is regarded by the bankers and btBanatl
men ponerally as a greater and entirely imUnown
danger that might follow if the poople of tho
Stato by their votos indorsod tho free coinago of
?rilver, by returning to tho executive ehair tho
candidate who 'would chanec it."' BA atitnde
as a mere politician is also snecrcd at, for thc
dispatch says "the Govcrnor has no largo in
rerestfl at itaba, and petaoaallv would tahfl ao
risk." Other Democrats, however, tho.se having
large investments, are not in harmony with tho
platform of their party, and are decidedfv Bd
verse to " chancing it." Already Btarchaatfl are
having their attentJon directod to thia matter bj
Kastern jobbers and maimfiuturcrs, for ditcctly
aoro<s the top of their billhcad* aro pifnted iu
red and full-faeed lctters tho words "All goods
to be paid for in gold or its eo,ui\alent."
It sc?ms that Allen W. Thttrina:i. BOB of tho
distinguished Senator who was 80 long the leadcr
of the Ohio Democrats, is on the stunip advo.at
ing BBUBtltad coinago, and that ho apeakfl by
eonsent of tho State COBBJBfttee, gftOf being le
fuscd a hearin^ by the Thurmau Club on the
iroond that disms-iun of thesilvcr queatjon n is
not advisablo. Other men in vaiious parts of the
BtBte aro taking tho same eotirso, loofciBg for l,cr_
sonal populaiity with the " inoto nioney" fanat
ics. So, as fhe dlapateh uss.-its, gefeat i> proba
ble, but " with thc handuiitiiig on tho wail. thc
silvcr BtBB insist on continuing the daVOgSJOB.''
It is admittcd that tho People'a party will not be
fonuidable, for thc BlOd of tbOflB MWh0 were
idotitilied with it will bc found in their old plBCCB
in the partiflfl t<i which they formerly belonged."
\s to the pn ipeeti theso strong words an- USed:
?' if thc DemocraUc party is crushed and humUi
atcd on the third daj of Norember, oa now aeenu
Iikely Uj be the caae, thc si'ver faaalioi will bave
oa)J thems-lves to thank for the deinoraliziition
and' the nensclcss position ln which thoy havo
plBoed ihe party the year piecedlag a Preaiden
tial oontest."
All will undeistand that thcie ate two gidafl to
this question. Tho P'rco Tradan are nad l.c
OBOafl their Bpostte, Mr. Mills, with his a'.siird
oalainitjj wailing, is received by Ohio with de
riaj ib and oontempt Repaatedl; he has be n
warned that his atnazing ignoraaoB of the faeta
doefl harm, and that his line of Bpeocb ifl BOt
adapted to that latitud", and admonished tJ go
away and let the party have a fair chance. Ilis
free-trade fricmls retort that the freo-flilvor non
senso w going BO "crush and humili.ite" the
party. As both are more than half right, the
party scems Iikely to be criished and htimiliated
ahatever it does. The nndiaguiaed attack upon
Govcrnor Campbell thowa that the wrangle baa
goiie sxj far that. ncither faotBtfl carefl for the
Tho ooontrp is witneeeing in Ohio a lin" dreaa
rehearsal, so to speak, of the wranglc between
tho Democratic factions which will bietk out

The offect of tho prcmature and ignorant
M tfofj of tho Board of Health haa been to make
mpea traportlilj a drug in the market. am.
to fa- ilitaie the pnrchase of tho aOrplaa atJOCk Bt
|OW C08t by Italian and Cerman wine-makers.
If tbe bm of inlphata of coppef be B Boarce
of dangor to the communify the evil will be
grcviv toafeaatd bi this way. Traces of eoppdr
are not found on thc grapes, but on the central
stems where the action of dew and rain has not
sufheed for its removal. When wme is made
tha BteSM ate tioated with the fmit, and what?
cver chemirals may adhere to them will be dis
>olved in the jtiic-e. The danger of poisoning
will tbarabf bc greater than if the giapes are
eaten and *tho stems thrown B8fde. Happily.
there is no ICMBOO to believe that anybody will
be poi?oncd either by tho baskete of htSOfOOa
Concord grapes now in market or by thc de
eottions of wine whii h may be prepared fn.m
them. It is a scnseless panic from which th
gOOd sense of the ptiblic will quickly PBOOtt.
Kegtet may be expressod, but no surprise, at
the abandoam nl of the Moot BJancObaerratorj
piojeoa. Suijirise is rathcr to be felt at the fa<;
that it WBB cver seiioiisiy tmdoitaken. M.
Janscn, indced, BMt with little encouragement
wbTh he liist propoaad it; but [fl tho end he en
ligted the iBtereat of eaeh men as Baron Al
phonse rfa RothacMId, Prince Rolaad Booaptite,
M. Blscboffabein and M. Liffel, and they Bgraed
to givo him all tbe money neeih-d lot tho great
work. M. KifTel BtBO gave much valnable ad
vic" rYgardlBg it. Tho first problem, he aaid,
waa to faraiab Bhelter for tho workmen; and
foi tbia hc Boggaated a boriaontal tuoaal into
the mountain-peak. The ncxt was, to aseertain
the deptb of tho iee-ctp on the stimmit. If tbia
was more than forty feet, it would be impos
sible ti give the observatory sccure foundation
on solid rock. and the schemo must be gaV?B
up. So M. Imfeld, a 8wiaa engineer, and eight
workmen went to M. Vallot's little observatory,
B08B8 ll.-'ut) lect up the mountain, and oatag
it as a lodgtag-piaoB, begaa tho work of titn
aelling Into tho gida of the peak, oa the south
ern slde, abont twonty-tive feet below tho
siunniit. IIow kryiag thoir occupation was may
be eetimated from tbe fact tbat in M. Vallot's
oabia, with two toko fires ragiag, they oonld not
gel the geaeral bamperatare abovo the freexing
point, while water boiled al 181 degreea Fahrea
heit. They peniated in their work, howevei-.
The tunnel was made tbroogb snow c BBpiBBBBd
into ice-gianules, for onttiag which toola of
gpedrtl fom and temper had to bo oODBtncted.
Tbej did not vcntuie to try blaatJag, not know
log what rliaaatrona effeet it might bara. Tho
men sufTored mucb from fro/.cn hands atiTreet
as well as fn.m " mal de moatagne." A fort
ulghl Bgo Dr. Jacottet, who was attendiog to
them at M. Vallot's, died from expoaore. And
so at last. having bored 1b aearij a huodred feet,
or more than half way through tho m nmtaiii.
without Bnding any indiOBtioa of rock or any
thing bni anow and ice, they Bbaadooed the
who!" ntid'-rtaking.
Tho practieal lesults of the attempt are of
little value. It is known that a glacier more
ibaa thirty feet thick orowna tbe great moun?
tain. What the f.-rm of tho rock-summit is has
not been BBceitained, tboagh M. Imfeld believea
it to conaist of 8 Bomber of pointj or ahori
ridges, Tbe bigheat rock actually found is
about Blxtj feel below tho aommit, and is cov
ered with threo or four feet of snow. And that
is al! ; reaolta in value scarcely compaiable with
the life of I>r. Jacottet. Sentimentil ennsidera
tiona regardiag it all will be dirided. To aome
it would aeem like saniloge to ereet a structure
of htiman hnndiwork on tho very crown of
Mthe fBOfUtna of monntains." Othera, how

from Ibe operationa ofaach an observatory, near
