Mr. Flower cannot fail to appreciate tlua
Tuk Remitter'i earnest efforts in behalf oi
reform in the Police Department are winning
golden opinions from the men under
lire. It isn't every newspaper that hat
the courage to pursue so heroic a coarse.
Ir the Chief of .Police had nothing to
fear from the record it is unfortunate for
hiu (bat the police docket, of which he if
autodial', has been mutilated since
Thursday night To make it worse, the
the job was not well done. This lookc
very much like the Chief's plea of guilty.
The clumsy erasure gives the Chief ol
Police more to explain, and makes the
task alii I more dilBculL Nor ia bo helped
by his visit on Thursday night to the
women who were lined, upon which occasion
he was indiscreet enough to resort to
bulMcziuj: tactics, innocent men do not
seek in this way to establish their innocence.
As soMtTiiiM) really neat we commend
this, from the New York Timet:
The resolutions of the Republican Convention
begin with one regarding civil twr
hearty approval of all right-thinking cil

as that adopted by the National Uonvei
Uou la?t year, bat a good many tbia/
have since happened to throw light c
thit pnbject, and the same word* have no
a different meaning.
Yet the Timet and some of its friem
coalu not endorao the work of the Repa

They wanted Cleveland, and they hat
uit-red away until they got him. "Bat
good many thing* hava since happened
Ac. Yea, among other things it has haj
poned that the civil service reform pr
ieasiona of the Democracy have l)3<
shown to be a sham repudiated by tli
party now that it is in power. Thoeewl

To give Mr. Caldwell credit for havii

"The reports of the haiing at Princet

The convention believes tha? tlio ex<
periment of coining silver dollars in the
ti? hope of maintaining a fixed ratio with
gold has gone far enough, and cannot b
continued longer without great danger to
the businefti interests of the country. The
loss in interest alone oa the silver dollars
stored up iu the Treasury ia over four mil*
lions of dollars per annum, and this accumulation
of silver, purchased at a cost ol
$180,000,000, in worth to day not more
tbau $100,000,000, with every prospect of a
farther depreciation. We therefore demand
the further repeal of the act under
which the compulsory coinage of silver
goes on, but we will welcome any practical
measure of agreement with other nations
^ by which the rates of value between yold
and 6iiver may bo made less fluctuating;
bat to this end the first step must be the
stoppage of any further compulsory coin's
age of silver dollars.

Wasbixoton, D. C., Sept 26.?The bes
Bvidence received here of the strength o
the Republican ticket in New York, ia th<
editorial concerning it in Mr. Dorsheimer'i
administration paper, the btar. Of tin
ticket he say*:
''Mr. Ira Davenport, the Republicar
aoraineo for Governor, iB a gentleman o:
,'ood standing, of moderate abilities, anil
)f great wealth. He has served in the
state Senate, and lias been for two yean
Joiitroller of the Slate. HiB public careei
s a colorless one. He was a silent Seuatoi
ind a routine executive. If elected, lid
ffould bo Jikely to do the duties of the
)flice in such a way as not to win the ap?
clause nor to incur the disfavor of the
people. General Oarr is too well
mown to make it necessary for
.he Star to speak of him at length.
Ha wbh a pflllant nnldinr. has been
ill acceptable public otilcar. ami has qlvays
been a successful candidate before
ho people. Anson 8. Wood, tho candilato
for Secretary of State, haa been De>uty
Secretary of State under General
3arr, and is a respectable man, but is not
MeJy known. Mr. James W. Wadsmth,
who received the nomination for
Jomptrollcr, has alroadv served a term in
bat office. lie, too, is a gentleman of
arge wealth, and a near neighbor of .Mr.
)avenport, Jiving in an adjoining county.
"Mr. Wadsworth is a cit:sc;n of the
lighpst character. The atrongett man on
be Republican ticket is the nominee for
Comptroller. The gentleman who is
amed for Attorney General is a lawyer
f (air standing. The other candidates do
lot call for special remark. The ticket is
nade to catch the Mugwump vote, and is
trong enough to make it necessary for the
iemocracy to nominate mon who will roeive
the undivided support of the party."

tiat should bo elected." When asked
bat he thought the attitude of the independent
Republicans would be he said:
This ticket should receive the hearty
upport of them all. i cm see no reason

J>. Jjeechor said name of it'wa* good a*id
Quae bosh. The resolutions in regard to
Ivil service reform and the silver quesion
were excellent, but those in regard to

b^ys j Thoscler.liou u! Ira Ltavenort
as the candidate for Governor will
ornmend itself to the intelligence, probity

is equipped for the high trust by spring
Jntmiijr, prqved aptitude for affaire,
xtendeu ejiperionee in the public service,
. personal and official record full cf good
porks and on which no stain rests. His
areer as Senator was that of a capable,
lainstaking law-maker whose vote and inluence
were invariably qu tho richt aide.
3e was a constant help to tue friends of

he lobby. As Controller he managed
ho fisral interests of the State with coneded
skill, bo that his administration of
he oilice takes rank with the very best in
he long line. His private life it equally
rorthy of corameudatiou. The pos?
essor of a large fortune, he is
videly known for his generous

riendless and tho active promoter of all
lie great causes that make for the welfare
if humanity. A gincere p^tript, Jhp
soldiers' Home at liatli a tests his pracr
ical regard for those who fotfght the batlea

nuch to affirm that hut (or Davenport's

It oeems incrodible that in the face of

causa, but suppoeed to be from sparks
from a locomotive engine, in the lumber
I yard of Obarles S. Gardner & Co., located
\ on South Ashland Avenue, south of West
Twenty-second street. A high wind
i was blowing at the time and the
i breeze fanned the fire into a '
' high blaze. Before the engines bad
commenced to play on the flames the tre
marshal foresaw that it would require a
great effort to snbdue them and at once
i turned in a second, and then a third
i alarm. This brought to the grounds a
, great number of engines from all over the
. city, and thsy arrived noce too soon.
1 As the flames spread the wind
? seemed to increase in velocity
1 until those, who were gathered
. around thought It was blowing a hurrij

i everywhere in the vicinity the wildj
cat excitement prevailed amonpr
j householders. Crowds oi anxious and , .
? frightened women and children
ran hither and thither, some screaming,
some shouting and some wringing their,
hands and looking agh%it at . tha Me,
j earning to lantfcipate a great conflagration
and a repetition of tho great tire of
1871, as tho blsxj took its beginning veiy
near tho origin of that lire.
The flamed spread rapidly to the yards
1 of C. B. Klynn A Co. and the John Spry
, Lumber Co., and almost completely enveloped
them and threatened the iarge
' yarde of the Loper Lumber Company.
Thousands of men were employed by the
j latter firm to throw water in huckotft ^
j on pilea of lumber. The only thing * *
dividing the Loper company from the
' that and tne tire iromrFlynndc Co.'ij *yard
was a slip of the Chicago liiver. A flm
tug was stationed there and worked well
ou the burning timber,but great fears wer??
v expressed that it yrould not prevent tho
i fire from reaching Loper's yard.
j While working in ufb yard of Flynn &
Co. several firemen overcome by the uf at
were rescued. By jmrsistent worlc the
j lire was finally got under control, after
burning two hoars, without reaching tho
' yards of the Loper company. Th* low in ?
