This L 1, year a great many ptople are shouting, 'Smaah Tammany Hall, Iiryanlim, and the Republican 5 party.' Don. Tracy hat made a groat pertonal '' J aacrlflce In accepting thtt nomination.

Every IlcDUbllcan who votes for Seth Low ' i Trill live to regret It. The Republicans who T ' voted for Urover Cleveland In 1884 lived to see .r i". their business smashed and a succession of com- , merclal panics. Every Republican who votes f ' for Beth Low Is Inviting disastor. Mr. Low i stands on no platform with any set principles. , .' lie declares that ho is the platform. In other . f "words the people. If they elect him, must be sub- 1 Jeoted to bis whims. This tight in New York is a - - great national fight. It it so regarded all over fc the country. Many of my Republican friends , ? are inclined to bo skeptical when 1 tell them ' , they should not vote for a man who resigned ' from the Republican party. These Republicans t qulotlr forget.

Republican party. 1 am perfectly amazed when , Republicans tell me that they think they ought to vote for 8eth Low." ! r President Quigg of the City Campaign Com- "3 V tnlttee said last ulght: ; "The Republicans who have had It in mind to ; roto for Seth Low aro rapidly being recalled to t- tbelr political senses by the development of tho " " last few days. They see Mr. Low and his mil- ,j chine, so pur and good that they couldn't think ' of conferring with the Republican organization '; ' lest ther should compromise their non-partisan , , -professions, engagins in deals and dlcLers of the f, , most disreputable bort in every direction. Tho -r only possible ground on which a ReDubllcan cun -i ' prefer Mr, Low to a man of Oen. Tracy's I character and ability is that he thinks '; that better results to the people of the municipality will flow from a government In V '. which the Interests of national parties and na F - tional politics are not considered than from one ' x1 -which alms to sustain tho cause of protection " and sound money while conducting municipal I. affairs. But Mr. Low has forfeited tho respect f' ; of every such Republican by his bargains with s - Democrats. In fact, the only principle that Low ' , has announced and is consistent with is his I f f declaration that be Is willing to take anybody's 1 '. I nomination on anybody's platform. That prin- . f, i dole he sticks to. ; ; "And. as a result, he enters the campaign as 5" 1' the candldato of the Purroy silver forces, as the ? 1. B candidate of the Orace-Srott Democracy, as tho f I candidate of a section of Tammany Hall, as the ' , I) candidate of the Shepard Democrats, andas the , i as, candidate of tho Ridderbnnd. And his friends '"',- have been attempting all day long to steal I some portion of the George single-taters. f ' Professing to be the exponent of pure govern- i rncnt, Mr. Low consents to take his place upon i '. tho blanket ballot in a regular party col- I -j it- nmn at the head of a ticket which be- P. fi gins with Seth Low and 'reform' and winds p, ;, up with tho entire Tammany county slote. y " What would be Mid of the Republican organ!- ; cation by these Duro-soult-d reformers if it had ti j ongaged in an infamous deal of that kind I j.r f Schurz and Charles Stewart Smith and Larocque U- and Orr would have lifted up their hands in (V noly horror, as well they might. But when a U .. thing Is done by these 'reformers,' the thought f- ; of which Ropublicnn politicians would never -ti have entertained, instead of being regarded as - ,'! j the disgraceful thing It really Is, it Is justified v $ ' as an 'honorable arrangement.'

If it ever possessed the strength alleged, Is evidenced by tho action of the Lincoln Republican League on Thursday night. The league Is n large Repub lican organization of the Eastern District, and baa a clubhouse at Bushnlck and Putnam ave nues. It unanimously adopted the following preamble and resolution at tho meeting in queitlont " I! hcrtat, It la the first concern of all cit izens nl the Greater New York that that great tnuntclyalltv should begin its hintnry with a fair, lyjncst, and Impartial admlnlsttntlon of Ita kiiiu -. and the cause of good government Should not bo retarded by permitting ItHorllret and placet of publlo trust to full into tho cor runt olutcbeaof Tammany Hall; nnd, ' Whereat.

The Womau'a Wett End Republican Club held a mealing in tho Hotel Kndlcott yeitcrday afternoon. Tho attendance was very large) for not only the members but their frlendt ara stirred up over tho campaign. George 0, Aus tin, Chairman of tho Assembly Cities Comm It too, was tho speaker of tho day, his subject being "State Legislation." Airs. Clarenco Bums was in tho chnlr and Introduced the spenkor. "I want to tako up tho practical sldo of legis lative work nnd machinery," said Mr. Austin. "I nm an organization Republican and I think I know this club nnd tho work it Is doing well enough not to npologlzo for that." This statement was received with a storm of npplnu'c, tor the women politicians aro thor ough bclloiors In organization. Mr. Austin went on to glvo a blrdscye vlow of legislative machinery. Ho said that ho thought the mothers, wives and Bisters of nil voters had as much right to Judgo of all candidates for olllco as the voters themselves. After dwolllng in detail on tho city bills enacted in 18UU and 181)7, Mr. Austin struck the nolo that won his audience completely. . . . "When Twent to tho Assembly last year," he said. "I mado up my mind to accomplish throe things. Tho first was to get money enough to provide every boy and girl in this city with a soat In school; the second was to extend Riverside Urlro to Spuyten Duyvll, eo that Now York might havo tho grandest drive way In tho world, and tho third conccrnod tho freo library.

As to tho free library, wo mado a contrnct with the three libraries, the Astor, Tildeu, and Lenox, which have chargo of tho romovnl of the reservoir in Fifth avenue anil the erection of a library there which is to be one of tho grandest In thu world. It must havo cost tho managers of these institutions a great sacri fice of ecntli'icnt, but they generously camo for ward and b tld that If tho city would buy the land and put up tho building it Bhould bs known as tho Now York Publlo Library. In a year tho erection of tho new building will bo begun, and we saw to It that it was in the bill that tho library should bo openod Sundays and evenings, so tbnt working men and womon mla-ht enjoy its benefits." Mr. Austin concluded by saying that ho had purposely refrained from saying anything about tno campaign, as it did not open until to-night. JTAOltJST AT TBE CITS' DOORS. Dnttsral Old ldy Comes ana lays TklDga About Starrv Even Iterorm. The outer circle of the CI ts.thoso men that guard the portals of the headquarters. Gen. Henckler, the major domo; Simon, the messenger, and the nice young man who runs the nomination sig nature bureau in the front room, were thrown Into confusion yesterday by the visit of an old lady who had a tongue. When she appeared at the portals Simon mado a dive for tho button box, for a great many old ladles como to tho headquarters every day to get Low buttons. But this particular one didn't want a button. She wore In her collar a Democratlo star, and &ho had trouble In her eyo. She planted herself firmly In front of Major Domo Henckler and looked at him for a minute without speaking. Hencblcr is portly and dignified, but he began to tldgctunderhls visitor's gaze. As she said noth ing, he thought he would begin. "Mad ho began, softly and gently. "Madt" said she, "1 want you to understand I'm not moil." "But, mad " began the Major again, sooth- "That's a He!' sho cried. "I'm not mad, never was mad and never w ill bo mad.but you're mad, all of you. You '(with tine scorn) tho Citizens' Union. You're a pack of thieves and traitors and I'm going to tell you what 1 think abbut It you're bribers and corruptionlsts tho wholo kit of on I know ou all you old whito hcadod rascal I;knov you all I'm a good Demo crat and my husband Is a good Democrat I'd forgivo him if ho voted tho Republican ticket but I'd damn him eternally if ho d vote for that man Low " Sho paused for breath a minute, and Henckler, who was very pale, begun again in a concilia tory fashion: "Now, mad " "Oh, you Mains," she cried, "you rascals you devils I know you all I know Lorocque the old copper-head I know Schurz he's the worst of 'cm all, ho stole poor old Tllden'a votes in Lou isiana don't talk to mo you can't steal this city I'm a Democratlo woman and I'm proud of ft and you can't buy votes in this city we'll put you all in Jail." "Meln Gott, vnt it isl" cried Simon. "Goodness me I Put the woman our!" ejacu lated the nice young man. "Good gwacious, Mr. Henckler, what's all this wacketl" camo a small, still voice behind a double-locked door. Mr. Henckler stood on one foot and then on tho other, whllo the visitor told him what she thought of tho outfit. Finally he mustered up sufllcicnt courage to put her?outstde the portals and lock them after her. Sho continued her sratlon for some time outside. SPARE 3IR. t'OXt n Doesn't TCant to Do IMairlot Attorney, and Mho Else ITants Illm Tat Austen G. Fox dropped in nt the Cits' head quarters yesterday somewhat disturbed in mind. He had come all tho way from the North Woods to work for tho Cits who had nominated him for District Attorney. Tho first thing that Btruck his eyes yesterday morning was an announce ment In several papers that he was to be with drawn and Olcott Indorsed. Boss Reynolds consented to reculvo him after he had waited in tho hall fifteen minutes, and after a confab of as ninny moro Mr. Fox came out smiling. Ha had been assured that nobody wanted him to withdraw. "1 Uo not want tno omce, ho earn, with bis eyes on tho celling. "It will be with great re luctance that I will undertake Its duties. The cares and worries of public olllco are extremely distasteful to me. I prefer the quiet of my Sractlce, not the noise of public life. But In a ght llko this Mr. Fox sighed long and deep a man who Is called and dors not answer to bis name Is a coward. I shall not desert tho cause nor do they wish mo to." Mr. Fox stalked out of the house, and Simon, the messengor. w iped a tear from his f aco and said: "Meln Gottl Vat shcntlenessl Vat noplll ty dot vos, buhl" r.orr a vxirrixo roncr,.

There Is one Assembly district In this county where the Hon, Seth Low has proved a unifying forco to bring together warring factions of tha Republican party that havo been at loggerheada for four years and more. Probably the strongest Assembly district organization which the 1111 holland Republicans ever hnd In tho city was that In the Sixtoenth district, led by William H. Uuber. Hubcr haa boen allied with the Brook-fleld-Swayne organization, but the proposal to Indorse Low for Mayor v. as too much lor his par tisanship. He quit fighting the machine, shook hands with George Billiard, the organization leader In tho district, and declared his intention to help elect (Inn. Tracy to the Mayoralty, Hubcr and his friends were met in tho spirit which prompted them to return to the regular organization, and Samuel A. Koenig, one of the brightest of Ruber's lieutenants, was promptly nominated as the regular Republican candldato for Assembly, Tho Cits claim tho Sixteenth as their banner district. The fact Is that they have hardly tho skeleton of an organization there. Itlcbiaoiia Comity Cits' Combination Ticket.

Van Wyck, the Tammany candidate for Mayor, went to Brooklyn yester day and held an hour's conference with some of the Democratic chieftains at their headquarters in the "hoodooed" Thomas Jefferson building. Chairman Bernard J. York of tho Kxccutlve Committee, Bird S. Colcr, the candidate for Comptroller; Senator McCarren, and John L. Shea took part in the confab, and it is under stood that they assured Judge Van Wyck that he was going to have the hearty and united sun port of the stalwart Kings county Democracy. Judge Van Wyck will visit Brooklyn from time to time during tho campaign, but neither be nor tho other Tammany leaders will inter fere with ex-Rigister Hugh McLaughlin and his lieutenants In tho management of their local canvass.

The alleged portraits of Presiding Justice Van Brunt of the Supremo Court, which have been published since his rcnominatlon, are really portraits of tho Marquis of Salisbury. Justice Van Brunt had for many years refused to have a photograph taken, although there Is a largo painting and a correct likeness of him at the Appellate Division. Some years ago a com pilation was made of sketches of prominent law yers and Judges, and Justice Van Brunt would not then sit for a photograph. Some one told those who were making tho compilation, pcrbapB as a joke, that a picture of the Marquis of Salisbury would give a fair idea of the Judge. So a picture of the Marquis was Sut In tbe centre and prominent lawyers and udges woro grouped about tho Marquis uf Salisbury. It Is from this compilation that the newspaper portraits of Justice Van Brunt have been taken. The portrait Is not a good portrait of Salisbury. It does not resemble Justice Van llrunt at all.

Debs made tho same speech he made at the liiursaay nignt meeting or tno social uemoo racy. Ho prodictod a speedy change in labor ' and governmental conditions, saying that It I would come, not by violence, lawlessness, or ' crime, but by tbe ballot. He attacked Congress, tbo Supreme Court, and thn State Legislatures, declaring that they woro all dominated by tho money power. Tho audtenco was with tho speaker and cheered him enthusiastically.

In tho 1,&22 election districts in the terri tory thero nro probably U3.000 men nt the pres ent moment who aro dovoting their tlmo ex clusively to politics. This Is an undercctlmato, politicians aay, rather than an overestimate. It.ls not possible at tbe present time to give tho exact figures even In the matter of candidates. If each party that Is In the field had a candi date for each ofllce to bo filled thero would be almost 1,000 candidates running In the great or city, but aa some parties Indorse tho candi dates of other parties tho total number of ac tual candidates cannot bo computed at present. Besides, there are four days moro for tho nomi nation of Independent candidates, to tho list of candidates may still bo largely increased. So far thero are seven candidates In the field for first Mayor of tho Creator Now York. Tho Republican party, Tammany Hall, the Demo cratic party, tho Citizens' Union, the Prohi bitionists, tho Socialist Labor Party und the No-tea-no-tlger party havo each lis candidate. Thero would bo eight candidates, but tho Popu lists havo Indorsod Henry George. Each of theso parties, too, has candidates for members of tho Municipal Council, for members of tho Hoard of Aldermen, for li.etnbur.i of Assembly, for Justices of municipal district court and of tho Supreme Court, for Comptroller, for Sheriffs In four counties. County Clerks in thrco coun ties, Registers in threo counties, District At torneys In three counties. Coroners in four coun ties and borough PrCBldenta In each of tho tho boroughs. There aro twcnty-nlno Council men to be elected. Including tho President of tho Council, and nn average of seven candidates for euchplnco. There aro tho Homo average number of candidates for tho uluj-ono Alder luanlo berths und tho flft)-nlno Assembly jobs. Thero nro, or will bo, bccn candidates for Comptroller, about thirty candidates for Sher iff, County Clerk, Register, and District Attor ney, about as many men running for Justices nf tho bupremo Court, nnd thero nro Bcvcnty or bcvcuty-tlvo men who aro trying to get them selves elected Justices of tho municipal district courts. There nro somo eighty candidates for Coroner In tho greater city and about thlrty flvo candidates for borough President.

Thus tho voters would havo a chance of looking over the men, and could nick their choice Every man might wear a number, and wo could get up u cutalogue vt ith corresponding numbers which would toll tho name of the candldato, tho otllce for which ho was running, and give his pedigree. The receipts from thu sale of this catalogue would pay tho expcn-.es of tho show. Wo might wind up with a barbecue, where all the candidates cnuld get acquainted w ith oach other. Personal acquaint anceship wnuld lessen the bitterness of tho light. This would bo fun, and politics is fun. Of courso we might leave tho candidates fur Mayor and Comptroller and tho candidates for judicial Places out of the parado. Tho dignity attached to their places wouldn't permit of tbelr taking part in tho show, but the other candidates ought to bo lined up so that tholr constituents might have a chanco to see them and discover their flno points. If thov havo any, or their defects, if thcy hao any. Then on election dor a man would be ablo to vote Intelligently. Ho would have seen the man be Is voting for, and would have moro of a personal Interest In tho election. It would add to tho gayoty of nations, and any thing that would do that, it seems to me, ought to bo encouraged.

E A.1 A Strong Desire for the Highest Good and Best Welfare of the World. 1 THE GREAT WORDS OF GREAT MEN. I A Most Remarkable Array of Outspoken Statements from Men of Mark in Both Continents. 1 INTERESTING FACTS AND FACES. 1 The orator before the Senate called this an "age of progress." He was wrong. " Progress " does not half ex press it ; it is' an age of revolution. Revolutions carried on, not by armies, but by discoverers, inventors and brain -workers. It is a marvellous age, an age when the ordinary will not be ac cepted, when the best is demanded. William Edward Robeson, M. R. c. s. I., L. k. q. c. L, Late of the Eoyal Navy of England. " emphatically state that I have been able to give more relief and effect more cures by the use of Warner's Safe Cure than by all the medicines in the British Pharmacopceia. WM. EDWARD ROBESON." Our grandfathers were content to travel in stage coaches, to live in cabins, and receive a mail once a week. We demand palace cars, tasteful homes, and daily communication with the world. It is the rapid-transit age ; the age of the telegraph and telephone. A man speaks "to-day and the entire world reads his words to-morrow morn ing. There are but twenty-four hours in the day, but forty-eight hours are crowded into it. We all know how we have advanced materially. Do we realize how we have advanced scientifically ? More than in any other manner. Indeed, it has been the advancement in science which has caused the advancement in material things. The discovery of steam permitted the railroad and the steamboat. The development in elec tricity made possible the telegraph and the telephone, so that the development of the sciences has been the real cause of all modern advancement. We will take for example one de partment of science, but the most im portant department, one which affects our very lives and happiness. For merly the treatment of human ills was made a matter of superstition, of in cantation, the same as it is by the med icine men of the lndiansto-day. Grad ually emerging from such blindness, it was still a matter of bigotry, of folly. What people must have suffered in those clays can scarcely be imagined. They were bled, they were cupped, they were leeched, they were sub- Prop. Dr. Koch, Berlin. jected to every device whereby their vitality could be reduced and their lives endangered. It is almost a wonder that the race survived. There has been an absolute revolu tion in the practice of medicine and in the treatment of human ills. Instead oT undermining the vital forces by cup ping and bleeding, the vitality is now sustained in every possible manner. Instead of tearing down we seek to build up. Insteacf of increasing misery we seek to create happiness. But the greatest advancement in medical science has been made by dis covery. Twenty years ago this great truth was realized, and the result was a dis covery which has done, and is doing, more to strengthen the vitality, lessen suffering, preserve the health and lengthen life than all the old line pre scriptions and preparations. It is fl known in Europe, in America, and throughout the world as Warner's Safe H Cure, and it has achieved greater pop- 9 DR. ft. A.

It may, perhaps, be thought that tha above assertion is an extravagant one, and so it would be were not the un i questionable proofs present to verify it. , Within the past few years the claims made more than ten "years ago have ( been admitted by the highest scientific t authorities, both "in Europe and Amer- j ica, and it is with pleasure that we pre I sent herewith some remarkable repro duced statements, together with tho faces of the men who made them.

Nothing can be more deceptive, for their symptoms are varied in nearly every instance. Thousands of persons have been their victims without realiz ing or knowing what it is that afflicted them.

Like all great discover ies, it has had its enemies and met with opposition, but its marvellous popularity with the public has been phenomenal, and its complete acknowl edgment by scientists and the profes sions has been deserved. It stands, as it deserves to stand, upon a plane of its own, pre-eminent among all promi. nent discoveries for the relief of hu J manity and the promotion of happiness.
