Tun Washington corrrespondent of the
Cincinnati Commercial Oaiclle telegraphs:
About Washington it is useless to deny
that the action [Miller's appointment] was
taken as a square-but declaration in lavor
ol the Itamlall end of the Democracy and
spirits went up or down accordingly.
To-day's appointments have further
enhanced the Itandall stock, and among
the people of the other branch of the
party thcro is consternation and indignation
beyond expression.
Isn't it early to be locking horns ?
Es-Sekatuk llxsiiv G. Davis, Senator
Gorman and W. I.. Scott, the millionaire
Congressman-elect from Pennsylvania, oie
said to be among the financial godfuthirs
of the administration organ which is to
appear in Washington May 3. Couldn't
our own ex-Senator find anything in the
new>|iaper line at home to back?
The day of administration organs has
long gone by. Newspapers of that sort
will stand no end of backing, but bread
cut on those journalistic waters never
comes back. It is written on the tombstones
on all the Washington concerns
that have tried It in the last thirty years.
Washington doesn't stand in tho relation
of I,om!on, Paris, Vienna or Borlin, and
in this country to be a government organ
is to he handicapped to the death.
Tns term of Postmaster l'eareon, of New
York, expires to-morrow. Business men

as a substantial pledge of
Civil Service reform. Mr. l'eareon has
been In the servico more than twenty
years, lie has reached bis present position
step by step. He is a Republican,
bat not a politician. He bos conducted
the business of his office on strictly business
principles, so that it has become tin
model postotllce of the country. There ii
great curiosity to know what the President
issuing to do about it.
The suggestion is thrown out tbat the
President will make no appointment, preferring
to allow Postmaster Pearson to drift
long until some time next fall, when s
Democrat will bepntinhis place. Thii
course would please the spoilsmen, but it
would he no moro in the line of Civil Service
reform than the appointment of Biggins,

had done a little pulling in a mild waj
public opinion would have been satisfied
there would have been no clamor, ant

TIIE I..AST CONSULTATION
Of Grant's Phy?lct*n??They Decide Not U
Um the Knife.
New York, March 19.?The following
will appear in tbo Medical Rtmrd of Mareb
21st: During the past week the local
disease of General Grant has shown no
maked tendency toward progressive ulceration.
At the recent weekly consultation
Dr. Fordyco Barker was unavoidably
absent. Doctors J. H. Douglas, Henry B.
Sands and George F. Shrady, who were
present, made a thorough examination of
the General's throut with a view of discussing
the expediency of a radical .surgical
operation for the removal of the
growth. Such a measure would involve a
division of the lewor faw in tho uiedion
line, tho extirpation uf the entire tongue
and the greatest part of the soft palute,
together with the removal of the ulcerated
and inliltered fauces and indurated glandular
structures under the right angle of
the lower jaw.
Xnia was considered mechanically possible,
despite the close proximity and
probable involvement of the tissues adjoining
the largo arteries and veins in the
neighborhood of the ulcerations, but in the
best interests of the distinguished patient
tho Biiri!eon8 did not feel iuelined to recommend
the procedure. Kven by such means
there could be no guarantee in view of the
exteiibivesiirromiuiugof itifilteraiion that
the limits of disease could bo reached
without immediato risk of a severe shock
to his constitution, already much enfeebled.
Low vital power is such a strong
elemeutin the disease that for the present,
at least, no kind of operation will be undertaken.
Tbo ulceration on the tide of the tongue
has not progressed far onough to produce
tho usual intolerable pain associated with
that condition, but should the latter
symptoms uppear it may be deemed advisabln
to divide the gustatory nerve. The
goneral tono of the putient's system remains
about the same as at tho last report,
notwithstanding he hss suffered
muclifrom insomnia. The latter within
tho last day or two has been kept under
control by suitable anodynes. There is
no pain in swallowing, and siilUcient food
is taken with reasonable relish.
A I'UII.ADBl.l'IIIA OPINION.
The Dlneiwe Minutely Deftortbed?How
Longtlie Pntiont Mny Live.
1'uti.adei.ruiA, Pa., 11a ch 10.?The
Philadelphia Jfrtftcof AVin of this week
will say editorially concerning the
disease from which General Grant is suffering:
"Lingual epithelioma, ig; a rule,
rapidly progresses towards a fatal termination.
When left to itself the life of the
patient from the first appearance of the
disease, varies in accordance with the esti
mates of different obat-'rvers?from ten to
thirteen montlis, the average being eleren
to seven months.
Death ensues, first, from a generalization
of the disease. Secondly, from septic
pneumonia from the inhalation of putrid
emanation which results from the decomposition
produced by, the ulcerated surface.
Thirdly, from starvation through the
pressure of the infected lympathetic
glands, and surrounding parts under the
ussopbagus, thereby interfering with the
deglusionj and lastly, from hemorrhage
! proceeding from the ulcerated lingual
arteries or vessels of the neck.. The duration
of the life of those who survive the
operation averages nineteen months. Not
, only docs operative interference prolong
life and relieve suffering, bnt it effects a
final cure in 14 percent of all cases.
In attaining these results it must, liow'
euer, be remembered that the incision ol
l the tongue is attended with a mortality of
. 28 percent, the principal dangers being the
shock, hemorrhage, utdema of the glottis,
septic lung affections, sptemia, and eryi
sipelas, some of which risks can be avoid.
ed by taking careful precautions during
, the operation and bv perfecting antiseptic
measures during and after proceedure.
1 When, in addition to the disease, the
i tonguo itself, palate and tonsil are int
volved, the prognosis is far more grave,
, whether the disease will be permitted to
nnnme an unaided course, or whether it
' will be subjected to tbe knife. In the
t latter even not only will the tongue have
. to be extirpated but the disease of the pal.
ate and tonsil will have to be reached. So
far as we can learn there is no example oi
the performance of a double operation on
record, and it is, in our opinion, not JubU'

[J argues against it, bnt does not absolutely

>1 It cloees a long editorial by saying:
'' "Members of the church who feel and
j talk favorably for tho abrogation of
[. doctrinal points are the reverse of strong.
0 They probably belong to a class who be'
lleve in the fullness of tho gospel as re8
vealed through Joseph Smith, and almost
s wish they didn't, or at leastthat it was not
g true. They would like to do the will of
God, providing it wai strictly in
1 accordance with their own. They desire
B to adhero to the church because they.can
not rid themselves of the conviction that
1 it is the power ol God unto salvation, but
they would like its doctrines and ways
1 more in conformity with those of the
world | that every species of friction which
8 causes discomfort and temporal disadvantage
might be avoided; in fact, they are
' conservative Mormons, another term for
8 men who, if the Church of Christ were
" manipulated by them, would-doubtless
adopt a policy of giving up religious rites
'' piecemeal, until every distinguishing feai
ture between the Saints and the world
' woald disappear and they would be
1 loved all' over tho earth because
i they would ha swallowed up by
' the world, which loves its own.
t It would result iu another universal
? apostacy similar to that which took place
" shortly subsequent to the time of Christ's
9 earthly mission. But coming back to the
' starting point all anticipations and pradic1
tiona regarding the recept'on of revelations
j to the church are necessarily premature.
1 Tho faithful who seek to know and do
? the will of UoU wm not oe snaiceu
1 of their purpoeo,neitbor will thoy abandon
their religious principles, in the whole or
in part, under anv kind of pressure whatever.
They would hold to their integrity ,
in tho full expectation of sooner or later
' beholding tne solvation of God."

Skirmish Followed by a Iletreat.
Suakisi, March 19.?General Graham
inspected all the troops this morning except
the Shropshire, Berkshire anil Harry
regiments. Fire hundred of the enemy
were seen in the hills near Ilasheen. The
cavalry, mounted iniantry and Indian infantry
were sent to reconnoitre while tho
guards acted as a reserve. Tho enemy retreated
before tho British advance. The
head of the British column was now close
to Hasheen.
The mounted infantry and scouts, supSirted
by the main body of troops, marchg
000 yards behind, advanced to the
base of the hills near Hasheen. The
scouts on reaching the summit of the hills
discovered tho Arabs massed in the valley.
The Arabs at once retired to shelter,
but fifty remaining in sight. When the
British advance reached the ridge of the
hills the lladondowah tribe rushed from
ambush and made an attack.. Daring
this Captain Birch wsb speared through
the shoulder. The Arabs got to
within ten yards of the British linu before
the latter opened a regular lire, which the
enemy promptly replied to. Four infantry
men were killed and three wounded.
Several lfadendowalis were wounded.
Among the killed was Lieutenant J'. Connor,
whose horse was shot from under
him. The British retired, tho Arabs
showing no disposition to follow. During
the engagement on the ridge the Bengal
Cavalry took many prisoners. It was ascertained
by reconnoisance that the Arabe
are in large bodies along the entiro range
of hills.
As the British retired from Hasheen the
rebels reoccupied it. The Malidi's adherents
declare that before the summer is far
advaaced General Wolseley's army will be
cut off from Cairo.
Alter the skirmish, bcneral uraliams
right, consisting of British infantry, Indian
infantry and tlie Guards began the
advance toward Uandonh. The mounted
infantry and Bengal cavalry renewing the
reconnoisance, occupied Hasheen and
found Osman Digna withdrawing his
forces toward Tamai. The concentration
of the Arabs was effected in unusually
good order.
Scouts report that Osman Digma is prepared
togive battle between Tamai and Tainanieb.
Tlie Arabs are estimated at from
7,000 to 10,000.
What Thejr DUcov?r?d?
Simkim, March 10.?The forward movement
commenced a daybreak by tlie British
forces is now said to have been merely
a reconnoisance in force, to discover the
strength and position of the enemy, in

resulted in several important discoveries.
The troops found the country
for some distance actually swarming with
the foe. They also succeeded in discovering
and locating tu? headquarters of
Osman Digna, whom tliey found strongly
entrenched. Ilia followers occupy numerous
strong and strategic positions, and are
well armed.

Prince of Wales, his father, heir apparent,
Uraiul Bloater ana si ins same umo a

working dates from 1722.. The" bylaws of
the Royal Alpha restrict the number of
members to thirty-three, nearly all ofllcert
or postofficers of the Grand Lodge of England.
Also the principle that no visitor can
be received enables the work to be carried
but in the presence of lodge memberaonly.
Wllllns Rooms, near St. James'l"alace, was
the meeting place. The lodge was laid
out in a Urst-lloor apartment, garnished
with fine portraits in oli of past 1 loyal
Qrand Masters, Worshlplul Masters and
Wardens. There were chairs in gold emblematically
decorated, and other appointments
In keeping. The Prince of Wales
took the Worshipful Master's ohair, donning
above his Grand Master's clothing
the bine collar of a Working Mason, the
pendant being the instrument which
forms the rude and proves tho perfect

To iju FAU jr al Ibt InUUtocnccr. 0j
Sih: On Saturday, the 21st Inst, the
people of Martin's Ferry will vote their ti
sentiments on the proposed erection of a n
water works, and the issuing of bonds for
that purpose to an amount not exceeding J'
$100,000. One of the most prevalent fears
in the minds of many thoughtful persons,
iB that the adoption of the measure would I"
increase taxes more than we are now able "
to bear. A few suggestions on this aspect
ol the case, may, ITiope, be of service in E
reaching a conclusion among those who p
entertain this apprehension.
The cost of water works, estimated from jt
carefully prepared plans and specifications, ,v
is S7S.OOO, but allowing 5 percent for con- t,
tingencies, the cost would be, say $80,000,
for which sum there mo now responsible
parties ready to give bond fortho con- [,
struction of the works. This once secured, "
tho expense to the town, aside from the ?
bonds, would be annually the interest of
the bonds and the running expenses of "
tbe works, WHICH would be Uie salaries of ?
tlic superintendent and an engineer, coat ?
lor fuel, oil, &c., Ac.
The Interest on $80,000 at C percent, ia ii
$ 1,800 a year. The running expenses ol ci
tlie waterworks of Bellaire, for the past w
year, were $4,000. But placing ours at the
fair allowance of $5,000, the total cost ?
yearly would be $0,800, a sum that would <x
lie raised from consumers at a very much 'I1
lower rate than they are now paying for
what little amount of water they gel for r
their money. ^
Suppose an ordinary family of five per
eons consume one barrel of water a week, *,
a very small quantity Indeed. They will
then pay $13 in a year of h'l weeks at the
regular prlco of 25 cents per barrel, for
water-cart water. But with water works, "
they will pay only $5 for the common use
of one hydrant in tbeaame length of time.
Some difference. a
But taking a higher average, including
the use of water by plasterers, stone and ..
brick masons, aaloonB, hotels, livery
stables, factories, bathe, hose, and the
like, and the average would advanco to 81
$8 78 per family of five persons, and still
be $4 less than the yearly coat of water- "
cart water. By the last census taken for
school purposes, we have 1,181 families, in
If 1,000 of the families ubo water works
water, at $8 78, that would yield an ?
annual revenue of $8,780.
Alao we have aoventeen factories which
would produce the remaining $1,020 at a
low proportionate rate. Thus wo meet the
$0,800 annual interest and running expeuaee,
and with an actual saving over old
ways, instead of increased taxes. There is tu

Now lor the bonded debt of $80,000.
Suppose the redemption of the bonds com- ?|
menced five year? hence and continued
twenty years, their payment would not bo
a Berious matter, if we but consider the
help to be derived from the following
sources:
1. The increase in our population, say .
at the not rapid rate of u percent yearly. |V
2. The reasonable, if not, indeed, ab- "

water to our neighboring towns of k
