A cable dispatch says: "The London

nineteenth century, but the fools are not
all dead yet.
One of the peculiarities of the next

The prospect of reform in the city of
New York does not appear to be brilliant
Ten members, exactly one-half of its city
council, are keepers of saloons, some of
them of the very lowest order. It Is
rather singular that Democratic success
always flings this class of people on top
where they can do the most mischief
ano an ine wnne it is none in the name
of purity and reform.

A census of China, in the sense we
use the word, has never been taken. It
lias been generally credited that the
population of that country numbers 400,-

that the nooutation of China proper, is
not to exceed 250.000.uOO. That is what

THE MODEL NEWSPAPER.
The Inter-Ocean for 1883.
The Inter Ocean says there Is no scrap
of news which should more certainly
arrest the attention of the working men
and women of the United States than
this short dispatch, flashed across the
wires from Vlenla. Austria. It says: "A
meeting of 3,000 workmen was held to
day, at which a resolution was passed
protesting against Sunday work. A
resolution was also passed In favor of
legal prohibition of newspaper and
other work on Sunday." In America
demagogues have harped upon "a Puri
tan Sunday," and have exhausted their
eloquence to prove to workingmen that
all days are alike, and that the old com
mand, "six days shalt thou labor and do
all thy work," was an invention for
their oppression, which they would be
wise to annul. They persuaded the mul
titudes of workingmen that they had
right to violate sacred command, in the
pursuit of any end in view. It cannot
be doubted that every year in America
the sacredness of the day of rest grows
less binding, and the naooatn more
and more like other days of the week.
It will be well If the toiling millions
of the land pause and think of this mes
sage to them from the tired workers
over the ocean. Above all others the
laboring classes are interested in the
observance of this day of rest.
William B. Kennedy was elected Cor-
orner of New York Tuesday of last; week,
and there appear to be five of him. Two
of him claim the office, but the other
three are indifferent. One of the claim
ants, strange as it may appear, handles
spirits while the other handles bodiep.
One is a saloon-keeper and the other is
an undertaker, and the question to be de
cided is which is entitled to the office.
The man who made the nominating
speech in the Democratic convention
says that he had the saloon-keeper in
mind, and most of the delegates are
sure that the eadaver man was the per
son they voted for, and he makes affida
vit that he wrote a letter to the Demo
cratic county committee accepting the
nomination. He also avers that he ex
pended three thousand dollars in secur
ing his election. The saloon-keeping
Kennedy can produce no such evidence
as this, but relies or. the statement of
the man who suggested his name and
the fact that he furnished free beer for
two weeks to every voter who called at
his place. The undertaker appears to
have the best of the fight so far, and the
county committee are inclined to decide
in his favor, bnt the other Kennedy as
serts that he will contest the case in the
courts. "I'm no Sammy Tildeo," he
says, "and I won't be beat ont of no of
fice." We advise both Kennedy's to
stick. Two of a kind always were better
than a Kelter.
To give all the news without MakriM in of
fensive set i sat ion ill ism i ; to be courageous and
aggressive in the advocacy of well-established
principle, without taini; narrow-minded or un
fair, to cater to the tastes of all classes of in
telligent readers, without pandering to the
prejudices of any; to present in most attractive
form the greatest variety of matter, without cur
tailing or lowering the standard of any depart
ment; to grow in interest and excellence with
each succeeding year of its existence, is to lie
the model newspaper.
From the first it has been the aim of the pub
lishers of The Inter Ocean to have the paper
reach this high standard, and in each oft lie
ten years of Its existence a notable step for
ward has !een taken. As every change lias
met with encouraging response from the pub
lie in the shaite of increased patronage, it is fair
to assume that tiie efforts of Oie publishers have
been in the right direction, and have been appreciated.
The Inter Ocean will remain uncompromis
ingly Rhpuhlican, will maintain its present at
titude of protecting American industries: will
continue to devote special attention to trade,
transportation, and economic questions; will
retain the departments of the Curiosity Shop (a
current encyclopedia or curious, interesting and
valuable information, called out by inquiries
of subscriber); The Woman's Kingdom (de
voted to the progressive movements in which
women are interested); The Farm and Home
(covering topics of special interest to fanners.
their wives and their children): The Veterinary
(containing answers to questions as to the
treatment of horses, cattle, and other animals
by one of the iwst veterinary surgeons in the
West); and Complications (taking iu puzzles,
enigmas, conundrums, etc ) all of which are
peculiar to the paper; will give as much space
as hitherto to serial and short stories, original
and selected sketches, and poems, and with in
creased facilities for news gathering in the
shape of special wires to New York and Wash
ington, and experienced correspondents well
placed at home and abroad, will more than
maintain its high standard for enterprise and
accuracy in all departments of news.
I he Inter Ocean, always closely identified
with the interests of the West, lias led in the
work of develrpnient of both the Nortwest and
Southwest, and it will icon tinue to make promi
nent the characteristic features of the progress
or the newer communities toward statehood
No paper in the country has i'Lvmi no much at
tention to immigration movements, railway and
canal enterprises, race and economic problems
and other topics relating to the prosjierity of
the older states and the development of the
newer sections as The Inter Ocean.
The aim has been to make it the best paper
for city, suburban, or country reader; the best
paper for the business man and his family; the
pest paper for the strong partisan as well as the
general reader; and as the circulation of tliesev-
eral editions has increased more rapidly the
past year than in any previous year, and as it is
now larger than that of any other piper west of
New York City, the publishers, feeling that
they have fair measure of popular approval,
will continue in the course marked out, making
such Improvements as will keep The Inter
Ocean at the head of the list of American
Journals as the model newspaper.
The circulation Is nest shown Of the amount
of postage paid on the papers sent to actual
