The County Convention.
If the selection of a date for the
Lackawanna comity Itenuliliean con
vention had been left to u fair vote of
the jH?o!e, without mvolvint,' it in any
complications due to nersonal ambi
tions, it is safe to assume that the re
sult would not have varied fur from
the selection made Saturday by the
.Republican county committee. Con
semiently it is fair to assume that the
committee and the people are insub
stantial accor.l, tints insuring a can
vass which, if in the meantime spir
ited, will not at the close be inharmo
nious. Whei; the county convention shall
have completed its work on Sept. 4,
there will remain two mouths ami two
lays before the renderim; of the final
verdict at the polls. The county cam
paign will thus be short, sharp and de
cisive, beginnim; in the cool of autumn

We dismiss as unfounded the con
tention that any candidate has been
slighted in the fixing of this date.
There is no reputable candidacy before
the party which need fear an exten
sion of the time of its consideration by
the people. A support which could
not survive the dog days should hard
ly be expected to live until election
day. The fact that the committee
chose the date that it did without di
vision and virtually without dissent
iuduces us to believe that the much
talked of discord in the itepublicau
ranks is largely resident in Democra
cy's addled brain; and that when the
convention shall have fairly named its
ticket the result will be its harmonious
support by the whole party, followed
by its triumphant election.

. That, to unsure, was an instruct

in the Indianapolis court room the

peared to advocate a cause before Judge
Woods, an appointee of President Har
rison. "Such happening-," declares

that General Ilarrifon is thoroughly

Investigate 11 Thoroughly.
The president's announced intention
to appoint a commission under the
authority reposed in him by the
O'Neill law approved Oct.. 1, 18SS, to
investigate the Uebsstrike is commend
able. Tlirtt law gives the chief execu
tive power, when controversies arise
affecting inter-state commerce, to se
lect two commissioners, one of whom,
at least,' shall be a resident of the state
or territory in which the controversy
arises, which, together with the com
missioner of labor, shall constitute a
temporary commission for the purpose
of examining the cause of the contro
versy, the conditions accompanying,
and the best means for adjusting it;
the result of which examination shall
be immediately reported to the presi
dent and congress, aid on the render
ing of such report the services of the
two commissioners shall cease.
In the present instance such a com
mission could have nothing to do with
the original strike at Pullman, further
than to inquire whether it had any
direct affiliation with the later strike
or boycott declared by the American
IUilway union against all railroads
hauling Pullman cars. Its mission
would be to collect and collate evidence
os to the purpose, extent and effect of
the Debs strike, and its report, if suf
llcieutly comprehensive, would doubt
less form a valuable basis for further
legislation by cougress.
It is monstrous to suppose that when
tlte recent tidal wave of excitement
shall Lave subsided, the American peo
ple will not proceed with deliberation to
punish those responsible for the viol
ence, loss, anarchy and Buffering inci
cideutal to and resulting from the ex
piring Debs boycott. That boycott
was a wanton uprising agaiust the
government, conceived in ignorance
and executed in bloodshed. The public
does not proposo to have ita rights
soon sacrificed again by a similar
movement of its seditionary character.
The strike was entered upon deliber
ately, therefore its participants must
expect to accept the consequences. If
some of these consequences are un
pleasant, the blame therefor cannot
be justly charged upon the laws which
the strikers sought to nullify nor upon
the public whom they endeavored
without cause or reason to "hold up,"
pillage and plunder.
Like the farmer, the prudent can
didate will soon be saying nothing
and making hay.
The American people will never
for long go back on an honest man.

The Science of War.
The TuiiiUNK has been furnished
with the following incisive letter from
Colonel F. L. Hitchcock, who is the
chairman of the committee from Grif
fin post, 13U, Grand Army of the lie
public, which is moving to secure mil
itary instruction in our public schools:
Apropos of tue movement to secure mili
tary instruction in our public schools, I
shihI you herewith a copy of the Boston
Glob giving nu account; of the aanunl
parade of the Uonton school battalion. It
l'i'uis to me ttmt notuinu coulil better at
test the value of this branch of education,
tiiHU the showing this battalion of Bostou
youug muu niukes. 1 wish the picture
lniKht be seen by everybody. What vol
umes it speaks for physique, grace of car
riage, perfect control of arms, hands, legs,
elasticity of step, and lung devolopmeut.
How much it tolls of meutal aud moral
stamina being developed, thn quality that
makes for manhood. What a pro
phecy for the future, ,8(W young mon
taught the first great principles of citizen
ship, obedient' to law, taught to control
themselves; taught practically the theory
of governmeut, iind their own individual
responsibility towards it; and educated to
know what the li.ig they carry stands for,
and thus instilled with the true spirit of
patriotism! When to all these is added a
practical knowledge of the art aud tcieuce
of war which this instruction means there
is then coupled with love of country a
vigorous and determined ability to defend
it under any and all circumstances. (Jan
the real value of this to the country be
over estimated? Hume one bus suggested
a fenr that this instruction would tend to
take away study time and thus lower the
educational efficiency of the cadet. Ex
perience proves not only that tho fear is
groundless, but that exactly the opposite
results are produced. The young men
who ( Ulcer the battalion (and these offi
cers are appointed on the basis of scholar
ship as well as physical litness) staud
highest in their scholarship. Many of
them will go from Boston school into Har
vard, Amherst and other colleges this fall.
H stems to me volumes cau be said in favor
of this Bcheme, without one valid reason
The Boston paper to which Colonel
Hitchcock alludes, besides devoting
several columns to the complimentary
report of the proficient drill of the
Uostor School battalion, remarks edi
torially that "the trend of public sen
timent at the present time is unques
tionably toward a military education
for the young. Many parents and
teachers believe in the cystem as one
calculated to impress boys with the
rules of obedience and discipline, and
give them a proper sense of subordin
ation and command. There are uow
about seven ty-f! veoflicers of the United
States army on duty as professors of
military science and tactics at univer
sities and colleges in dill'erent parts of
the country, aud a plan to extend the
same privileges to the high schools in
large cities is said to be favored by tho
present secretary of war to nu extent
that encourages the belief that at no
distant day army officers will supervise
the drill of high school cadets."
The only objection to this movement
seriously advanced is that it tends to
introduce disturbing features into the
regular school work ; but we are In
clined to believe that more wholesome
exercise under competent military in
structors and less mental acrobatics
would be a beneficial innovation in our
public schools. To be sure, we are not
a military nation, aud any instruction
in tactics would need to be conditioned
upon that fact; but a wiso sense of dis.
cipliue would do no harm even to civ
ilians, while in time of crisis it might
mean the life of tho Republic. In this
connection it might be well to recall
the fact that at the Indianapolis Na
tional encampment of the Grand Army
of the Republic last year a resolution
was adopted recommending "an or
ganized effort to impress upon the
various municipal, state and rational
authorities the advisability of the adop
tion of a system by which the scholars
attending the public and private
schools, as well as the high schools and
colleges, shall receive instruction in
military matters, and to Impress upon
the rising generation the fact that as
American citizens it Is their high duty
to bring to the defense of their country,
in its need, the education which they
may have received in this particular
in their youthful days."
The i'ostokficb department is to be
commended for placing Its ban upon
the advertisements of one Conrad who
blows the Louisiana lottery horn
through the thin disguise of the presi
dency of a New Orleans machinery
supply company. If after the recent
exposure of this swindlo, showing
how its prizes are placed by design
where they will afterward lure the
most victims, it shall be necessary to
guard agaiust its aggressions, one
would almost be justified in conclud
ing, with Barnuni, that his fellow
citizens really want to be buncoed,
aud would not be happy without it.
Dr. Parkhl'KST has written all

A DAY AT
Loxdo.v, JulyS The coach drive front
Londou to Wiudsor. Oxford, SevennakS
and Hampton Court forms oue of its chiefest
attractions to tho American traveller. The
conches start from the Victoria, near Tra
falgar square, in tho early hours of the
moruinn and ure invariably well patron
ized. There is no better way of seeing the
ninny natural beauties witniu thirty in
some cases sixty miles of Loudon than by
taking trips on these several coaches. It
is infinitely less tiring and monotonous
thau railway traveliug, aud the well regu
lated roads which traverse this country in
all directions are thing-) wo are unaccus
tomed to see in America, while each routs
provides curtain charms peculiar to itsilf.
Selecting the trit) to Hampton Court we
mounted the ''Vivid" at 11.30 aud riding
through Piccadilly and Brompton road to
Ptltness turned to therieht through prettv
suburban villus, through Barnes common
to Sheen aud tho Bull uivern, whore horses
were changed, and the bar-maids stood at
the open door invitiuc; us to enter the
quaint old hostelry and quench our thirst.
Here at Sheen livod Henry VII aud here
Queen Elizabeth died. The royal palace is
now occupied by the Duke and Duchess of
Within a few minutes drive we entered
Richmond and reaching the bridge ob
tained a fine view of Richmond hill, with
the famous "Star and darter" hotel snugly
ensconced in tho rich foliage. A stone's
throw to the left h Twickenham and the
immortalized Twickenham ferry. Ted
diugton station is soon passed and the
coach enters the celebrated Chestnut ave
nue of Iiusbey Park. This avenue is over a
mile in length and the trees are some of
the finest in th world, planted ns they
were by Heury VIII early in the sixteenth
century. Just opposite tho gates is Hamp
ton Court palace. We crofted the river,
pulling up at the Surrey tsido at the Thames
hotel kept by 1L Tag, in time to enjoy a
capital luncheon, fiumpton Court is the
largest aud in many respects the finest of
all tho royal palaces of England. It wns
fouuded by Cardinal Wolsey in 1515 on the
threshold of his great career and here ho
dwelt in regul splendor for over ilfteeu
years. He finally turned it ovor to Henry
VIII and after his disgrace the kiug en
tered into its possession and here ho lived
with his several wives.
Our Uaedcckor says that Queon Mary
passed her honeymoon here. James 1
here settled the divpute between the Epis
copalians aud the I'uritaus. Here Charles
the First was held a prisoner. Cromwell
resided here, aud after the restoration

apartments are wonderfully interesting
and entortnining. We entered by the
king's great staircase, the sides, walls and
ceiling of which are covered with paint
ings by Vetito, executed by command of
Wolsey, then into "The .Smoaking lioome"
art! the king's guard chamber. Here
there are a thousand pictures, worthies",

latter, eicells anything in the palace. The
state bed room was designed by Bir Chris
topher Wren, the famous architect of Bt.
Paul's. The ceiling is one of Verrio's best
efforts. Between tho windows is a fine
old Pior gins, dating back to Wtllney's
timo, and on the mantel is one of Queen
Mary's collections of china. The Queen's
gallery, with its wonderful tnpestries, il
lustrative of the life of Alexander, con
tains, as well, the painting of the inoet
fng of Henry VIII and Francis I at the
Field of the (.'loth of Gold in ltWO. It de
picts with marvelous accuracy every inci
dent of this famous intorvlew. In the com
munication gallery we saw the nine pic
tures of the triumph of Julius Cceiar, Almi
tei;tia's greatest and richest work !hj
glory of hamplon Court, and said to be oue
of the most precious artitio treasures of
the English crown. They were begun iu
Hb5, aud remained la Mantua till 108,
when they wore secured for this palace.
Next beyond is the haunted gallery
supposed to be haunted by the shrieking
ghost of Queen Catharine Howard. Here
the guide says she escaped from her own
chambar and ran to seek an interview
with Henry VIII, who was bearing mats
in the royal closet in the cbnpel. Just as
she reached the door the guards seized her
and carried her back. Her screams had
no effect n the king who continued his
devotions. And in this gallery a female
form in white has been seeu advancing to
ward the door of the royal pew Hnd just
at she reaches it observed to hurry lack,
with a ghostly look till she passes through
the door we entered.
The greatest of all the attractions at
Hampton court is the groat hill of Henry
VIII which from the size, height, its
splendid and elaborate roof, stained gla
windows and beautiful tapestries is Ibo
most gorgeous extant example of the in
ternal decoration of a Tudor palace. It is
a buildiug by itself, the ancient mauor
bouse of the Knight Hospitallers being
removed to give it place. It was used for
grand functions of state, banquets and re
ception of ambassador. Here Catharine
Parr was proclaimed quean July 13, 1M3.
We ennnot describe the attractions In fur
ther dotail. The exit is by "5T court
where ye fonntayne standyth" and jimt
over the archway into the court are the
arms of the groat Cardinal Wolsey in
terra cotta, with his motto, "Domino
Mlchi Adjutor." Out we go by the Vine
houte and the Maze and on the bank of the
Thames again to watch the river craft and
enjoy tho scenery uullko anything any
w hero else ou earth.
The ride back to the city was even more
entortuiuins;. We passed the homcgoers
of a Saturday night the exodus from the
metropolis and crossed Putney bridge
just as tho lights of Loudon commenced
to twinkle like the stars. No more in
structive mid delightful trip can be Im
agined than that to spend a day at the
pulace at Hampton court. E. w.
