THE NORTHERN TRIBUNE. OCTOBER 27. -18S3. NORTIIEItN TllIBUNE. SATURDAY. OCTOBER 27. 1883. IIUnOCKATIV IIII.AKII V. The Bay City Morning Call, of the 21st paye its respects to the Northern Tri bune in more than a column. Its spirit is cental, its style clever. In fact it does not lack (lash, and it is our pleasure , recognize in the Democracy a tendency to literary elegance. The Call.in the light of Republican administration of law.and of Its inspiration to use the language vrltu its moral grandner.has abporbed enough good sense. 1 But with the advantages he has enjoyed there is an occasional break of the true Democratic inwardness. For instance, "ihe verdict in Ohio is only an index of the general condemnation Awiltlncr the organized hypocrisy in 1884." The Call here da', a little rude "Hypocrisy" is not true of any great nurtv of this reoublie. There may be mistakes, honest differences of opinion but hypocrisy has no plaee in the Amer lean mind. It is wltu.pleasure, however, we recognize in our cotemporary grow ing signs of courtesy. It is too much to ' ask if a Democrat that he should be up in all oroDrieties at once. Between 1884 and 1888, with the advantages of another Republican national adminislratiou, the Call man will have so improved In his tastes that the Democracy caunot forget him, especially bo when he is one of the few who is devoted to its respectability One thing is certain, another four years will, with seduloua study, improve the opportunities of the Democracy that they might b6 intrusted with managing the government. Before such a time the American people , cannot think of sur rendering their national honor to the keeninsr of those who have -to forget' so much, before they can be said to loam the geuius of those laws that have placed us first in everything. Democracy has not yet learned that this is a nation. It has noli quit its barbarous free trade notions. It is without any training in fiuance. It is out of order with progress. These lessons are important. The Call must know something more than linking the faults of the llepubli can party together. Democracy must possess its own virtues. It has a knack of calling hard names. This will do for an alarm a mere alarm, but for a plat form it is too thin. The Call has abundant Held for its usefulness in train ing the unwashed to the habits and usages of refined expression. It can well hold over its ambition till .1888, as then the government will have a solid trend. The Democracy, as a ballast power, is rational enough, but .to have the Presidency, the people don't think of . such a thing. The chemical featof "Ex trading Rumbeams ironi Uucum tiers is a new departure, and for this th-e Call is ; to be congratulated. In an English magazine article Mat vthew Arnold criticised American habits i. so severely as to make them modified savages, and now this distinguished .- scholar and philosopher who will .soon be here, thinks we will be prejudiced against him on account of his funny .re marks. Not in the least, but Arnold will , be .astonished to find forks, napkins, bath-rooms, clean linen and many con veniences of civilization - and mudi charity interwoven with a genuine re ifinement not excelled in Merry England. . UYfliT is known as pociety in Boston may. hare its snobs. But its air is not : for the growth of that set. The free dom of .the sexes has its own dictates for .its guidance. Nowhere is there any more grace in manner and conver sation, and oyer all presides a morality , that is self-assuring and safe. There be little of society where the relation of the sexes is not marked by an innocent free dom and refinement. A well bred, well dbehaved man is an assurance that a cul tured woman is In no wise oat of place. .JJoth give tone in well ordered life. No where, is there more freedom than in JJoston, and nowhere are the charms of .refined life more prized. Recently a Mormon leader said: "We are laboring ,in every country; a far as Ireland on the north and New Zealaud -on the south. We almost encircle the globe." And yet nothing has been done, nothing is being done, to check and destroy this Godfying, nation-challenging society-destroying curse, that inrults all decency, threatens every vir tue, and is sure to produce bloody, costly war, unless speedily and summarily dealt with by Congress. The time for words and meaningless measures is past. What is needed is earnest blows that will strike the foul thing dead. The question is too big for politics every civilized person is opposed to the further existence of this unpardonable disgrace.

A Boston lady, cultured, and but two days wed, counted among her presents a $000 toilet bottle, designed with ex quislte art. The young husband being annoyed by a dog in the yard threw the said bottle at his head and smashed it Of course he did. She sued for a divorce and got it, it being extremely cruel to a refined woman, to smash her smelling bottle on a dog's head. She is free again The husband No. 2 is of the future, but in using the boot jack in like circum stances he may fare as husband No. 1 Now the question is, what are the feel ings of a Boston woman for a husband Last week Gen. James Steedman died at Toledo, 0. He was a self-made man of strong intellect, excellent fighting qualities as a soldier, and thoroughly appreciated by the public for his many superior principles of life and character, The eleventh annual congress of women held its aunnal session of three days in Chicago last week at Ilershey Music Hall, which was crowded. The members were characterized with intelli gence, gooi sense and culture. The meetings were full of interest, power, progress, ana many hope tor good results. The recent decision of the Supreme Court on the"Supplementary Civil Rights Bills" is just, it does not interfere with the civil rights of the negro. These are secured beyond question, but you cannot legislate social equality, as one's stand ing socially deppnps entirely up on himself and resources. Democratic Journals assert that the Republicans are only interested in the negro to the extent of securing his vote. that the Democratic party is his true friend. Who championed the cause of the negro when he had no rights that were bound to be respected, and it was questioned whether he had a soul? Ev-ery one knows that the Republican party was that .champion, not because the negro was an African but because he was a man, and when that party sees Democrats enthusiastically defending the negro and claiming to be a friend that sticketh closer than a brother, Re publicans know their work has been em inently-successful. The Presbyterian synod, in its late New York offices, approved of the Roman Catholic pastoral letter by the bishops. It approved of the ground taken on di vorce, on the watchfulness over the young from the influence of bad litera ture. It also approved of the ground taken against the use of liquor as a beverage. The Calvanistic child has been the most rebellious of "mother church" offsprings. She it was who pelt ed the venerable dame on all occasions, with stones, and was In glee when it could call her the ; scarlet woman of Babylon. This is surely liberalism. When the churches rely on the right of their members to worship whero they please without censure, then we have free thought. We cheerfully approve of the spirit that is awakening to a deeper humanity. Fort coal cremates those who die with contagious diseases. "An internal convulsion," for Europe next year says Pere Hyacinthe. The Chicago Herald says that the New York World's cut of Judge Hoa'dly "looks too much like Frank James.' Both are Democrats recently flushed with victory.

John Edwin Palmer, a Sunday school superintendent of the M. E. Church, of Mansfield, near Pittsburgh, 38 years old has eloped with Miss Sadld Rimmel aged 16 years, a. member of Palmer' Bible class. New York seems to ape Paris. Mar riages are negotiated by an expert. correspondent suggests an office In every town. Tho business is confidential un til every one knows it. That's the fern iuine part of it. The fact that several foreign artists are now placing upon canvass the natu ral beauty of America as pictured in her mountains, valleys, plains, streams and historic places argues well for foreign taste and native inheritance. Butler is firing hot shot into Beacon Hill from the Bible, the blue bloods are desperate, the campaign the liveliest political set-to ever witnessed in the state. Everythit g will be aired on both sides, and the result cannot but be good to the public interests. Returning from Enrope, Cyrus W Field, Jr., says: "I have been to London on various occasions, but l never saw the English moneyed public so interest ed in our affairs as they are just now.' So long as Republicans rule the financial affairs of our country will be the best on earth, but whenever the wise policy of protection, economy and honesty is changed, it will be different Rev. T. E. Green, pastor of the Eighth Presbyterian church of Chicago, preach ed a sermon recently from "They which run iu a race run all; bnt one receiveth the prize; so run that ye may obtain.1 He maintained horse racing as a good thing, that should be encouraged, by the better classes. His position is correct, but for a Presbyterian minister to come out ahead in the matter of horse-racing is worthy of note. The New York Tribune says that Jay Eye-Seels held at 1100,000; whereas a railroad company only paid $12,500 for killing a man ; and this "look? as' if ,the man must go." Yery well, let the man go, and just as soon as he can go as fast as Jay-Eye-See goes he will be worth a great deal, more than the horse. Post and Tribune. A live horse is worth more than a dead man, and a fast man who beats another is worth the amount of his checks which often aggregate on Wall street several $100,000. This is an era of peace and good will in the United States, emphasized by eminent leaders and all the people. At Cleveland, Gov. Foster, in welcoming soldiers of the Army of the Tenuesseo struck the true spirit in these words: Bofli victors and vanquished are equal ly satisfied glad that the Union was preserved and that slaveiy was destroy ed; both follow the same flag and both are ready at the drop of the hat to fight together for that flag against the whole world if need be." C. II. Hayneh blows a blast through the Michigan Labor Journal. He drives quill for progress; says many good things, and by the way is a cleyer sort of a person. He plumes the big rooster and every body else is a little rooster. Prctection is one of his horrors, and to pierce it is one of his efforts. Ho counts the Tost, acd Tribune, of Detroit, the Bay City Tribune, the Northern Tri- uune, and the National Labor Tribune, of Pittsburgh, Pa.,' as lightweight roosters in the brigade of protection. Haynes is a free lance, and does service not for the fun of It. He is not particu lar at all times, and is often off his bal ance. Words In him ana through him are not seldom airy. The fact of it i., . II. Haynes has brains, but the margin is small. THOMPSON SMITH, Proprietor.
