FOB PRESIDENT !

Subject to the Decision of the
St. Louis Convention.
■ECEDEBS FROM THE UNION
A new organization in the city of New.
York styled the Republican Reform Club
has sprung into existence. The purposes
which the club will endeavor to accom
plish, is, to signalize the opening cf the
new Centennial of our national existence
having nominated by the Republican
party for President not a mere political
partisan, but a statesman of tried character
in sympathy with the best sentiments of
the people on all public questions, con
versant with the affairs of government,
discriminating in the choice of public
servants, one who will thoroughly reform
the public service, and whose name alone
will be a guarantee of official integrity, oi
wise and prudent administration, and ol
fearless enforcement of the laws. Then : w
organization is a secession from the Union
League Club. The whisperings of this
secession from the club has been beard lor
some time, but has now become a practical
fact. Judging from their avowed pur
poses, their Presidential candidate will
not be taken from the present list of Re
It is unquestionably an anti-Conkling
and anti-Custom House movement, but
whether pro-Blaine, pro-Morton, pro-Bris
tow or pro all or any other Republican as
pirant, is one of the mysteries which the
future must determine. The manifesto of
the seceders is causing a great deal of talk
in political circles. Negotiations are pen
ding for a brown stone lront not far from
the Fifth Avenue Hotel, as the head
quarters ef the club. It is impossible to
dissociate this Reform Club movement
from the political conciliation called by
Mr. Bryant of the Post, Mr. Schurz and
President Woolsey to meet in the city of
New York shortly. Unless the Cincin
nati Convention jjuts forth a candidate for
the Presidency, worthy of the Centennial
yeay the reform party will not support llie
nomination, and will look elsewhere for a
standard bearer. This reform party may
support Bristow, Adams or Everts, but
will not support Blaine, Conkling, Morton
or any other mere politician that the Re
publicans may nominate.
THE THORN X PATH.
Presidential aspirants, especially Repub
lican ones, are traveling a thorny path. A
Presidential candidate should, before he
first cherishes such ambition, cover up all
tracks of his former misdemeanors. Blaine
thought he had scratched dirt enough over
his crooked tracks to prevent further fol
lowing of his trail, but the thin covering is
being removed. Other allegations are
made that his statement did not cover, and
there are indications now that the House
will go to the bottom of the matter.
The doughty showman of the "bloody
shirt," Morton, is called upon to refute the
charge that he failed to account properly
for the money he received while Governor
of Indiana during the war. This ensan
guined shirt showman has also become
discernable in the back ground of whiskey
ring investigations, and there is a preva
lent impression that it has required extra
ordinary exeriions to prevent positive evi
dence coming out that he received large
amounts of money from tho rings ostensi
bly for political purposes. The probabil
ity is that boih of these bloody shirt gen
tlemen may have an opportunity to vindi
cate themselves before an investigating
committee. Blaine and Morton should
have avoided all corrupt acts and crooked
ways before they put themselves in train
ing for the Presidential course.
It is a blessed thing for the Republican
party that the Democrats are bringing for
ward all the damaging revelations so as to
kill off the vulnerable candidateslieforc
the Cincinnati Convention entrusts any of
(hem with the leadership in the national
THE HOVEL EXVOBTIOH.
The rumors of increased rates of hotel
charges in Philadelphia during the Cen
tennial season, is creating considerable ex
citement throughout the country, and is
receiving merited condemnation by the
press of the interior counties of Pennsyl
vania. The proprietors of the Continental
in Philadelphia admitted to a representa
tive of the Sunday Sun of that city that
they would Increase their rates fifty cent s
per day more during the Exhibition, so that
the impression prevalent in the South and
West, that the Philadelphia hotels in
tended to take advantage of the Centennial
season to charge unreasonable prices is
well founded, and justifies the severe com
ments of the press on the gross imposition.
The ordinaiy rates of the Continental is
$4.50, but to show their respect for Cen
tennial visitors, and their great desire lo
make the Centennial a highly creditable
Exhibition, they will impose an additional
fifty cents on guests to that hostlery. This
spirit of Philadelphia hotel keepers to
charge their Centennial guests extra prices,
is rather a hard commentary on Phila
delphia's disinterestedness in her big show
and of her appreciation of foreign visitors.
In commenting on the increased rate of
Philadelphia's principal hostlery, the Sun
very truly says: It is theprinoiple of the thing
and not the extra half dollar. The hotel
ihat cannot make money by charging four
and-a-half-dollars per day in a city where
everything is so cheap and plentiful as in
Philadelphia ought to give way to some
other line of business.
THE CUBAN WAK.
After a struggle which has now lasted
upwards of sewn years, we find the area
of Spanish domination on the Island of
Cuba growing gradually smaller every
year. Yearly the conflict waxes fiercer,
and vainly the might of Spain is hurled
against the forest and mountain defended
Cuban patriots,who are steadily approach
ing Havana and pushing their enemies off
or under the soil of Cuba. An awful sac
rifice of the life of the young men of Spain
is made to satisfy the cupidity and vanity
of the Peninsular Government and its
agents in Cuba.
The Spanish troops engaged in the war
at present in Cuba are mostly boyB drafted
under the conscription laws that were in
force during the civil war in Spain. The
majority of these poor boys have scarcely
attained the age of twenty years, and being
brought directly from a temperate climate
to a tropical one and exposed to all the
hardships of a guerrilla warfare, they fast
succumb to the terrible forms of disease in
the tropics. The soil of Cuba seems to
swallow the enemies of that levely island,
for army after army lias marched into her
dense forests and rugged defiles, hut have
never returned, for even disease is patri
otic in Cuba, and yellow fever and small
pox mow down the columns of Spain as
effectually as the bullet and machete of the
THE PHI El' JUSTICE.
The appoiaiment of the Ehief Justice
must be prompt, as the filling ef the va
cancy is a legal necessity. All writs issued
must be tested in tbe name of the Chief
Justice. Nearly the whole legal business
of our county for the coming term, is de
pendent upon the filling of the vacant of
fice in a few days. There are many excel
lent gentlemen named for the office, viz.:
Messrs. Dupont, McCauiley, Lore, Cc
megys, Sauls bury, McFee,and Gray. We
heard it suggested by many Democrats that
if the Governor were to promote Judge
Wooten to be Chief, it would be a fitting
honor to so worthy and able man, and
would properly crown the declining days,
of a pure and upright Judge. That he is
eminently well fitted to be Chief Justice, is
best proven by the fact that he has fre
quently presided during the illness of the
late Chief Justice Gilpin, some time ago.
This would also save Judge Wooten from
tbe undeserved mortification of having a
younger and untried man, placed over
him. It would also render the filling of
Judge Wooten's place easier, and the ap
pointee, in the natural course of things,
might look forward to fill the Chief Jus
ticeship, at no very remote day.
PI HUH MUCH MOOItEYIBN.
There is now what is termed Pinchbeck
Moody ism. Other clergymen are at
tempting to imitate the great Boenerges
of revivalism. Some Rev. gentlemen who
have heretofore entertained their congre
gations with highly classical sermons, are
now ignoring learned expressions and
speaking in Meody language, having be
come convinced of the vitality ef his mode
of preaching. One of New York's Rev.
gentlemen in particular, who preached
highly classical sermons, whose periods
were polished, his rhetoric uniuqieachable;
his learning always accurate; his illustra
trations wrought with artistic precision,
and quoted fine sentiment* front th$ JfOOfr,
now appears in the pulpit without manu
script, uses no more dainty rhetoric, drops
the poets and uses simple language, or
what may be properly called Pinghbeck
Moodyism. Would it not be well for
many other Rev. gentlemen to take on
Brother Moody's ways.
SUBMIT TO NO NONSENSE.
President Grant won't stand any of Gen.
Custer's nonsense. Custer lias incurred
the Imperial Censer's eternal displeasure
by his naughty talk about the President's
friends. For telling tales out of school,
Grant inflicts the punishment upon him
of ordering him to his regiment in Dako
ta. Custer has done no duty since he left
his regiment as a line officer early in the
late war. For his little committee talk,
he has been relieved from duty as com
mai ding officer under brevet rank, and
goes to his regiment simply as Lieutenant
Colonel. Should the talkative Colonel
ever be so fortunate as to be breveted a
General, again, and do no duty except as a
general officer, he will be~likely to keep
very mum aboufVhat he may know of
the crookedness of the President's friends.
The Imperial Ceaser. will not submit to
any such nonsense.
THE rMUHT OF HABB1NOTON.
And now comes the news that Richard
Harrington, one of the chief conspiritors
of the safe burglary, in order to establish
his innocence, lias run off to South Amer
ica. The Washington Ring furnish him
money for his escape, as they compromised
the interests of Henry D.,Cooke and his
eoncern in the "real estate pool" with the
trustee, in the hope of escaping investiga
tion by Congress. Harrington is in the
intimate confidence of the Ring thieves at
the Capital. They used him as a tool and
made him a confederate in all their vil
iiany. Some time ago when Harrington
was a guest of Boss Shepherd's, he said he
would never stand another trial, and he
made no bones in publicly declaring that
if his friends did not furnish sufficient
funds to carry him off out of the reach of
justice, that some others besides himself
All that was mortal of John Cochian,
of Middletown, was yesterday consigned
to his mother earth. His spirit having al
ready, witnessed those joys, which no
human eye ever saw. His death leaves a
void in society, about Middletown, that will
not be easily filled. Of a joyous, gener
ous, and manly nature, he was the soul of
every circle of society, he entered, diffu
sing his own joyousness, and banishing all
gloom, by his presence. His virtues were
many and manifold:—brave, generous, and
charitable. His loss will be deplored, alike
by rich and poor.
The oldest fishermen say they never knew
the fishing operations to be so interrupted
as at present in the fisheries of Albemarle
and Pimlico Sounds. They report great de

schools by the myriads of blue fish that in

fish feed upon the berriugs, and when their
appetites are satisfied they destroy them by

Why He Mugged tbe Girl.
[From the Jersey City Herad.]
A couple frem the country came to the
city yesterday, procured a license and were
married in due form. They left on the after
noon train for home. They attracted the
attention of every passenger by their lavish
display of affection. The young man kept
his arm tight around the bride's waist, as if
he was afraid she would vanish before he
knew It, and she didn't seem to care if ho
hugged her right along for half a day. She
was so terrible homely that everybody won
dered how he could love her, and by and
by he seemed to think an explanation would
be In order. He borrowed a chew of to
bacco of a man near the door and re
marked: "I'm going to hug that girl all
the way home, though I know she isn't

" And that's where you'd fool yourself,"
continued the young man. "When I'm

make the homeliest girl In the world look
like an angel to me."
