1K619H. The leaders of tbe Republican party
ea that every issue on which the
ta:ty aj originally ionnded and on
which it trinmpbed has been settled.
Tby have eko discovered that a
paity canoot live on its past record;
tbat it does not deserve to live unless
it keeps abreast of the progressive
eplrii of tbe age; and of late the Re-,
publican leaders have been hunting
for aametbinK to take the place of war
italics. B'aine ii trying to make the
tariff question the aole istue in the
next Presidential election, Blair
proposes the Blair bill and prohibition
as the signs by which the Republicans
can conquer in the next Presidential
contest, and in California the Repub
licans have planted themselves on tbe
old Knownothlng platform. A week
g tbe Republicans; held a Sate
Convention at Los Angeles and
nominated candidates for Gov
ernor, Judges and ether offices,
nd in every put of the
feta'.e the Republicans proclaim:
"We've got an American ticket at
last. There isn't an Irishman, a Jow
or a German on the ticket We ha 1 a
pretty hard time putting tho kibosh
on that Dutchman Weil ; bat we gat
there jast tbe tame." The convention
land a clean sweep of every man lorn
unJcr foreign tkias. Tbere would be
no significance to tbe nomination of a
ticket coin ported ol alt Americans but
for (he fact that the Republicans have
boasted that "Amoiics is for
Americana" and Hint foreigners
we e defeated solely becauas thty
were foreigner?. The Republican
parly was the outgrowth of
Knownothlng principles. It had its
birth in fanaticism as intense and un
reasonable as tha prejudices which
culminated in tha Native American
party. Oat of the fragments of that
dissolving bigotry and intolerance
sprang the organizttlou which in Cali
fornia boaita tbat it dm neither
Iiishmen, Jew nor German on its
ticket." Like its predecessor, it mingles
religious intolerance with nee an
'tlpalbioa and challenges the vote of
the people of California for an exclus
ively American tlckot. In this con
.try men should be elected to office be
case they are qualified Americans. It
must be confessed that in every elec
tion there is too much talk abont the
necessity of nominating men to catch
the Irish vote, the German vota, the
Jewish vote, the Italian vote and the
neuro vole, and too little inquiry abaut
the Amorican vole when all or s A mer
le ns. It does not couapot with the
genius of our institutions to urge tbe
elect ion ot foreigners to office because
thty are foreigners. But now that the
Republicans have levived Knownnth
inglsm and oppose the election of for
eigners to office for the sole reason
tbat they are forelgnors, tbe Demo
cratio party will again inscribe on its
tanner, "Civil and Religious Liberty,"
ant see to it that no man shall be de
nied his rights as an American ciiissn
on account of his religion or his birth.

The New York Chronicle announces
tbe loss by firs in the United States
and Canada, during tbe month of Au
gust, as being "srone than ever."
Tbe average lire losi in August
amcunU to about $7,000,000. Tbe
files of the Chronicle, my nothing
of the many fires unrecorded, which
amounted Lst month to $13,000,000,
of wbich $3,000,000 was by f jrett fires.
Leaving this amount out, the loss by
ordinary fires is $10,000,000, a serious
increase over the average $7 000,000.
Lies by firs during tbe eight months
of the present year has reached $7o
600,000 against J05,tO0,O0O daring the
corresponding months la-.t yeir, a fear
ful increase, especially when it is re
membered that three ont o! four fires
originate in carelessness or neglect and
could be preventedif a propir motive
for preventing or decreasing them
bi found. Oarelessntsi and negligence
are ccstly things to the American peo
ple. If every firs requiring the fiie
engines to be called subjected tbe oc
cupauts of the burning' promises to a
legil investigation, a sufficient motive
would be found to exercise carear.d to
avoid nrg'igonue.
A itreat many years ago a schomo
was proposed, not to raduoo the amount
of taxatl'jn.but to remove the tax on cer
tain arlicVs and phce it upon ethers.
A caricature appeared en tha subject,
which represented a poor, wearied out
fallow with a he ivy burdea upon his
back, which the government adminis
tration was busily engaged In moving
coasto rest upon his ehouldera, say
ing as they did so: "Have it any
where yoa please, bat you mutt carry
it." This is hoar tbe silver men serve
tbe country. First there must be sil
ver dollar, because the people were
crying fir "the dollar of our f itbers."
But so far from crying for lbs dollar
lumps of metal, the people called them
"pot lids" and would take no more of
ihem than they could help. Then the
metal burden was changed to the form
of silver certificate, and as thsy were
not eagerly gorged, small notes in circu
lation were called in to force the circa
la' ion of the dollar. The dollars will
not circulate, however, and now small
notes are to be restored, but they ara
to be silver certificates. "Anywhere or
in any form you pleaso, buttilver dol
lars in dlpguise or out of diegaise you
must carry." The small silver certifi
cates, $1, $2 and $5, tbe Treasury is
nearly ready to issue in exchange for
silver dollar deposited tit them.
These certificates will ba convenient
and save pocket material by re
lieving the poople of the mieery of lug
ging heavy "pot lids" about tbelr per
sons, but the certificates wdl be worth
no more than the silver they repie
sent, and when that goes down tithe
bullion value will bo worth 71 or 72
cents oi the dollar. As long as we
mint $24,01)0,000 worth of silver every
year into dol'ars, tho certificates will
leave tbe silvar trouble just where it
is, and tbe more notev put out the
mo e notes, or silver dollars, will
g'avi ate back to the Treasury. If
thise cettitlcAtes do not relieve the
burden cf retaining tons upon tons of
silver dollars in tbe Treasury, ingenuity
will no doubt invent aims other
s hemo for forcing the silver dollar
upon tbe people; the shape of the
burden may be changed, but thn
poor, wearied public must not be al
lowed to leave oil' carrying it.

appeared with it from his boarding

kuewei'hnr. lleesked the euperln
tendentet the road for a two das'
holiday, just as his wife had FBked the
director cf the Casino fcr a week's vc
cation. Everyone took his d sapprar
ance as vonch ng fcr the truth of ttie
rejiort that he had been paid $15,000
ti maintain a phih snphical equi
libiium. although Starter Moore, of
the road, said that he wou'd tot be a
wbit surprised to cce him turn up for
duty tomorrow morning.
Young Mr. Brectano, involuntarily
or not, has been the intermediary for
tbe paet ten weeks bttweon M. Moro
einl and bis daughter. Mr. Moroeini
for eight jears has bought French and
Italian novels fiora Breutano. Within
the past ten weeks Mrs. Schilling has
been in his shop almott daily. She
has repeotedly spoken to him of her
love for hit father and her detestation
of her husband. She often raid to
Bnntano tbat she would return to her
father's home if she could, and as
often Brentano repeated whit she said
lo Mr. Moroaini. The old gentleman
was cold at first, altaough he
Boon got into the habit
of walking np to Brentano's shop
every day from his ofiic?. He finally
thawed a little and said tbat he might
forgive bis daughter were it tot for
certain sta'ements sbput him with
which sbe was accredited in the news
papers. Mr. Brentano leaned from
Mrs. Schilling tbat sbe had never ut
tered those s atements and th'.t she
defiod anyone to fix tbem on her. He
convinced Mr. Moiosini tbat they were
false. Tha father, thawit g still more,
although be never broached the sub
ject first, said to Mr. Brentano tbat be
would never see his daughter want if
she showed a repentant spirit.
Mrs. Schilling took tbe bint. She
alfo took tbat 0 :30 o'clock p.m. train
on the New York Central that did not
carry her to a Canadian convent, but
to some remote and isolated spot
where some of her relatives Brentmo
does not know the degree of consan
guinity reside. Mr. Moroaioi as
sure Air. Brentano no later than yes
terday tbat since Victoria ran away
none of h s sons or daughters had laid
eyes on Mrs. Schilling. Tbat was
true. The negotiations look
ing to Mr. Echiliiog's support
if ihe ebowed repn'ance, be
iuu in B'cntano's 6hop, were on
titjued in Vanderpoel, Green & Cam
mings's law office. One day when Mr.
Morotiui c.lled there and le rned that
his daughter was within he did not
entr, but wrote what lo had to say.
Mra. Schilling, baviug taken the first
steps towards a reconciliation with her
f-Uner, to:k the final one and left her
huBbacd. Plet.sed with tbe evident
spirit of repentance, Mr. Morosini sont

Defrauded Out of Honey lo Search
for Hidden Treasure.
Nkw Orleans, La., September 10.
Dr. Geo. J. Adams, cf Marsacbuset's,
wss imt cd here today, charged with
embrzz t ment by a number of persons
whom be defrauded out of money t
search for a bidden treasure. Adams
claims to have been a practicing
phytic'anin Maaaecbusetts when tbe
war broke on'. He shiulder.d a
musket and joined Compar y A, 8sv
en'eenth Massachusetts Volunteer?.
A poition of tbe command came witb
Butler to New Orleans. In a foraging
expedition, three soldiers of tho
rtgrxont .entered a dwelling on
the Magnolia Pantaton, tweity
miles above New Orleans, on the
light bank of the river, and carried
off some $30,000 in gold and silver,
$1800 of it in silver half dollars, $1000
in dolbra and the remainder in gold.
Being afiaid to enter the city witn bo
much money, on reaching a poraa
grove, about half a mile from the
locks at the canal oppes'te Green
ville, they selected a tree promirent
for its 8zi and some p.-culiarities
abt u ; its appearance wh'ch made it
consp'cuouH. At the foot of this tre
they buried the money aod then took
bearings, ore ot the party beirg a civil
engineer. Each of the three men were
furnished with a copy of this end the
marauders returned to New Orleans
intending to return ait-r tbe wer
and recover the money. His two
companions were killed and Adams
desperately wounded soon alter.
Adams was t k n to a No th
em hojpi'a', and left it par
alyz d and helpless. Whea he recov
ered tbe use cf his limbs (only a
month a.o) he returned to New Or
leans, and at once began to search for
bis treasure. He found, to his ds
may, tbat all the older pecan trees had
been cut down and only tbe young
ones left, and wa, consequently, una
ble to recognize tbe tree under which
tbe treasure was buried. He devoted
himself, however, for three weeks, to
delving for it. A few weeks eg) he
t ok several other parties into part
nership with him, who advanced a
better outfit-forsnrvryingthe laud and
digging for the money, bat, as he hat
unearthed no treasore, bis partiers
had him arrested today.

thought had a chance to recover. The
mother has been out of mcney tor
