NO CROW EATEN HERE
The Republican is fond of small wit
ticisms. It says the Herald eats crow—
that we are gulping down Butler. As we
never joined In tbe abuse of Butler we are
not called upon to chaDge our opinion. A
movement Is not to be judged by Its leader,
It is the principle Involved, and the object
to be achieved by which It Is to live or die.
Butler has been called to lead the working
Democracy In a contest against the Russels,
Greens, Whitneys, GastoD, Averys, et al.
Who at bottom are domestic enemies, and
who neither sympathize with or respect tbe
masses, Indeed who are In conspiracy to rob
them. He has accepted tbe call, and from
present appearance be will smash the Re
publican party to fragments, and cashier
the false and flattering leaders of the Massa
chusetts Democracy. We will give a sam
ple of tbe legislation advocated by the Re
publican party of that dtate, and assented
t > by the Venetian wing of the Democracy
There was a Stay Law proposed last year In
the Legislature for the Savings Banks In
Massachusetts, which would enable them to
compel a depositor to give at least twelve
months notice for his money before drawing
It I Remember, there was no stay law ad
vocated for other creditors. Let us illus
trate the woikings of this law: Suppose a
mechanic five years ago bad mortgaged his
bouse worth 15,000 for 82,000, payable on
tbe first day of October, 1878. As a pru
dent man be would put all his surplus earn
ings In some savings bank, so as to have U
ready to pr.y bis mortgage when it became
due. But, by the Stay law the Savings
Banks won't pay his money possibly for
three years, and his mortgage becoming
due the 1st of October, would be foreclosed
by his creditors, and be would lose his
house.
Is It any wonder that tbe people broke tbe
ligatures of patty discipline, and called to
their aid a Free Lance, as oppressed people
have often done before, to help them In
their rising against deep-seated wrong and
domestic treason. No crow eaten here.
YALVABZE immigration.
Last night's telegrams from Washington
tell us that according to accounts forwarded
from Port Lamia, by tbe United States
Consul there, that for the year ending June
30,1878,30,610 persons entered the United
States from Canada to seek homes with us.
Of this number 16,183 were Canadians from
the provinces of Ontario and Quebec.
These Canadians were principally agricul
turalists, carrying with them to their new
homes their horses, wagons, agricultural
Implements, household effects, and In a
majority ol cases money enough to pur
chase farms. Hence the Consul says the?
may be regarded as a very valuable acquisi
tion to the ranks of American Industry.
Delaware has received many of tbe immi
grants, and there la room for many more.
Come on friends, you are welcome here.JJ
There are hostile demonstrations against
the English Missionaries in the Interior of
Faklen Province, and destruction of life and
property arc threatened.
KEEP YOUR TEMPER.
The report of the action of the Demo
cratic Committee, which appeared In yes
terday's Heeald, was made up from the
data furnished by the Secretary, Mr. Bald'
win. Mr. O'Byrne was appointed by the
committee to examine the witnesses, their
testimony was reduced to writing—this,
with the Secretary's notes, was handed to
Mr. Brown, the local reporter of the
Heeald, who wrote the report for us. He
gave them to one of the reporters of Every
Evening, just as he received them, this
gentleman promising positively to give them
to the other papers. This It seems he did
not do. The motion was made to exclude
reporters because of the impropriety of
permitting them to remain. The fact that
specifications were stricken out as irrelevant
In Mr. Dean's case, and the other papers in
McWhorter's case, were not put upon the
minutes, furnishes a sound argument for
the argument for the enforcement of the
rule to have the meetings private. Much
that took place in the meeting was not pub
lished in the Herald, as the public have
no right to know it. Mr. O'Byrne told Mr.
Singley and Mr. Humphries If they came
back they would be furnished with any part
of the proceedings the committee would
permit to be published.
MAINTAIN THE lAW.
We are in favor of seeing every man
obtain the highest wages the Industry be Is
engaged In will bear so as to compensate
capital and skillful direction, but we
strongly censure such a man as Cohen, who
yesterday headed gangs of men In Wash
ington that threatened violence to every
man working for less than 11.50 per day.
A municipality which permits suck mob
despotism must be rotten to the core, and
ought to elect a dictator with the will>
power and ability to crush such riotous
anarchy at once and forever.

PETER COOPER THINKS BUTLER MAY
BE HAYES' SUCCESSOR.
The venerable Peter Cooper has been In.
terviewed to this effect:
"How do you think this Maine election
will affect Gen. Butler's chances t"
"Gen. Butler Is sure to be elected as Gov
ernor of Massachusetts, and will stand a
very fair chance of being elected Presi
dent.
"But will not the National paity insist
upon your reuomlnatlon 1"
"I cannot consent to serve again. I only
consented before because there was no other
man to represent the principles; but,
although I was willing then to endute the
obloquy and the ridicule, I am too old now
to undertake another campaign. I am in
my eighty-eighth year, and half of that
gone. On my last birthday, Mr. Fish, who
came, showed me an almanac of the year I
was born, and In that almanac the popula
tion of New York was stated as 27,000. I
have advocated the greenback principles
thus far against much opposition, as you
know, some of It from my own son and son
in-law, who disagreed with my views.
"Mr. Hewitt seems to be making a
thorough investigation."
"Yes; but he makes the mistake of having
too much faith in the gold dollar as the
standard of value by which to measure
anything. Why, in Scotland they have had
paper money good from time Immemorial,
and It has been remarked : ' They never
see a guinea.' "
"Do you think resumption next January
will be injurious.''
"It will be tbe greatest curse that could
be lDillcted upon this country. It carries a
great many evils with it In connection with
the bank Bystem, and I almost wish I may
not live to see It. Four years ago a dollar
would not buy half the property In real
estate that It will now. Personally I might
be benefited In money by the ruin that
would ensue to many by the resumption
act, but for tbe good of the country at large
I want that act repealed. What do you
think has raised tbe circulation of the labor
newspaper organ except that it Is founded
on truth and justice."
How about Dennis Kearney, Mr. Coop
)>
fi
er?"
"Well, I wish some one would advise him
to leave out his harsh epithets. I think If
be would do that he would have more In
fluence. Calling hard names doesn't do any
good. As an old friend of mine said, 'You
can catch more flies with molasses than you
can with vinegar.' "
MILK AS A BEVERAGE.
Lager beer promotes dropsy and ele,
phantlasls. Wine stimulates gout and
rheumatism. Whisky Induces Jim jams.
Lemonade acidulates the stomach and
weakens the powers of digestion. Ice
cream Is multttudlnously ruinous. Stick to
milk and mild tea.
A Paris despatch to Reuter's Telegram
Company says it Is rumored that M. Leon
Say, Minister of Finance, will resign his
office because bis views conflict with M.
Gambetta's about the conversion of tbe 5
per cent, rentes. If M. Say resigns he will
probably be appointed Governor of tbs Bank
of France.

MEMORY WONDERS.
A young lady In Makatra, Is said to be
able to recite 18,000 verses of a Sanscrit
poem. She will repeat any verse when the
chapter and number are mentioned. This
surpasses the German actor, who last win
ter in Philadelphia, recited entire plays of
Shakespeare. But all this is acquired by
study. The most wonderful efforts of mem.
ory are those which enable a person to re
peat a speech or a poem after hearing It
read once. A memorable Instance of this
Is related to have taken place during the
reign of Frederick the Great, before he
quarrelled with Yoltalre. A "memory
man" had been brought to him claiming the
most wonderful powers. The same morn
ing the King had agreed to give an audience
to the French poet, who desired to read to
his majesty a poem he had just composed,
and dedicated to his royal highness. Fred
erick ordered the memory man to secrete
himself behind the window curtains when
Voltaire arrived, promising to reward him
if he really could repeat the poem about to
be read, Voltaire came, made his obeisance
and read his composition. The King said
it was very line, but was not original. The
poet became greatly enraged, and swore
as only an excited Frenchman can. Fred
erick repeated his opinion, and as proof of
his statement offered to produce a man who
would repeat thefjpoem entire. Thie the
poet said was Impossible. The hidden man
was called, and repeated the poem. Vol
taire knowing some imposition had been
practised upon him, but not belDg able to
detect it, raged like a heathen, and tore up
his manuscript. Explanations were then
to ordei, and the soothed poet was Indebted
to the memory man for a transcript of his
verses.
