THE BUSINESS ASPECTS OF THE
There is some reason to apprehend
that more damage will result to this
country from the speculation stimulated
by the war in Europe than will
be compensated for by the advance
in the price of our products. The gam
bling spirit that has been manifested
during the past two weeks is fearful to
contemplate. This city has been the
scene of great activity in operations of
this character, and the operators are
by no means confined to those who are
by avocation dealers in grain, but to all
classes of society. One has only to
watch the crowd around a telegraphic
instrument that prints the state of the
market to learn how widespread the
mania for speculation has become. As
no wheat actually changes hands on any
of these operations, it follows that when
some make money, others must lose it,
and when the excitement is over, there
will be not a few wrecks to remove.
The fact to be born in mind is that to
effect considerbly the prices of American
breadstuff's, the war in Europe must be
a protracted struggle. This has not been
the case with the European wars. The
machinery of des traction is so effective
that it is apt to reduce a war to a few
sharp aud bloody shocks. The armies
are ready by the time that the declar
ation is made. They are moved by steam
and their movements are directed by
electricity. They meet; their fearful
death-dealing engines do their work,
and the story is soon told. A few such
collisions disables one or the other of
the combatants. It used to be t rue that
the Lord fights on the side of the strong
est battalions; it is now quite as apt to
be true that the Lord lights on the side
of the most improved batteries.
As to the probable duration of the
war between Russia and Turkey, it isn’t
easy to form a conclusion. There is a
railroad from St. Petersburg to Odessa,
and there a conjunction caubefoimed
with the fleet. The Turks tan make no
effective defense on the Danube, aud it
may be expected that the Russian
army will cross the stream with little
delay. This will make it necessary for
the tnrks to depend on the Balkan
mountains to defend them against the
invader. If the Rnsssians should pass
that obstacle, the fall of Adrianople
would follow speedily. There is a rail
road thence to Constantinople, a dis
tance of 200 miles, and 21 hours would
suffice to place the Russian army at the
gates of the Turkish capital. Thus the
war from begining to end, would be a
matter of a few weeks.
On the other hand, it is not probable j
that the passage of the Balkan moun- !
tains will be very expeditiously accom- j
plished. It is undeastood that the Bus- j
sians will attempt to make their way i
through the Shumla pass. They have
attempted that enterprise three times
before, unsuccessfully in 1774 and 1810,
and successfully, though with great loss,
in 1820. In the gorge is the walled and
fortified city of Shumla. If, as in pre
vious wars between Turkey and Russia,
the Turks concentrate their army there,
tin Russians will find it an obstacle of a
very stubborn character. But here the i
question arises whether the war confined
to a comparatively small area in Bulgaria
will materially affect the price of bread
stuffs ia America. The most probable
answer is that it would not unless the
war closed the Black sea.
On the whole, it is to be feared that
the expectation which has been raised
in this country will be scarcely realized
if the war is only a struggle between
Russia and Turkey. Speculation has
advanced the price of wheat to a high !
figure, and it is conceivcable that the !
war prices are already discounted. But
if Austria and the other powers are in
volved, “then may we count oar gains.”
The struggle will be long aud will sweep
a wide path of devastation. There will
be a demand for all our surplus pro
ducts at high prices, aud if the crop of
1877 is large, it will give au impetus to
the prosperity of this country that can
scarcely be overestimated. Not this, but
it will go far toward solving the finan
cial problem. A general European war
and a good crop will make resumption in
1879 an easy matter.— Sentinel.
It is difficult to see how the transition
from anarchy to law in Louisiana and
South Carolina could have been more
quietly, successfully, and completely
achieved; and this is the more gratifying
because it is evident that any abrupt or
violent action would have brought a
dangerous strain upon the popular
self control. Is there anybody left who
does not recognize at last the wisdom of
the President's methods as compared
with the hasty councels of those who
urged the sadden withdrawal of the
troops from Columbia and New-Orleaus
on the sth of March, without a moment
of delay or i note of preparation ?—A*.
Those who have declared that anew
party will be formed based on the creed
“He serves his party best who serves
his country best,” will be disappointed
in the attitude of the president, for he
has declared for the old party which
honored him, and as against any other.
In fact, the Republican party is anew
party, made such by au active practice
of what have been only ornamental
Instead of showing the shriekers for
Civil Service reform “how not to do
it,” as most of them hoped and expect
ed, the President is showing them how
to do it, to the gratification of all honest
men. Mr. Hayes is the disappoint
ment of the day. ,
It does seem as if Democracy grew
more Bourbonesque aud obdurate as it
spread northward. Here is the new
Democratic Senator from Louisiana tal
king like a very emphatic Hayes man.
OUR WASHINGTON LETTER.
Washington, D. C., April 27, ! 77.
Our political cauldron here censed its
seething upon the suriice when the
Louisiana Commission made its report
and Packard quietly stepped down and
out. But there is a vast deal of ‘‘toil
and bubble” in its depths no one doubts.
There is a quiet but close scrutiny made
upon every point, and there seems an
intense desire to feel the public pulse in
regard to the grave and momeutus issues
involvea in the adjustment of the South
Carolina aud Louisiana issues by with
drawal of the troops from their position
as political arbiters, and sending them
to their barracks as conservators of the
■peace. The publication of Ben Wade’s
letter denouncing the President's policy
is pronounced now a violation of confi
dence, and regrets are heard on all sides
that it should have appeared, now when
public opinion may be in and is averse
.o the position involved in the strictures
as to the denunciation and threat of im
peachment against Mr. Lincoln, hence
our political magnates are reticent and
intently upon the watch as to see what
the country will determine in the premi
ses. The commission, upon its return,
made a short repart of their doings, and
evidently are proud of their successful
engineering through which the two Leg
islatures were combined, and a peaceful
end attained. They regard Warmouth
as a shrewd political and financial man
ipulator, aud credit him with much that
was done towards harmonizing the fac
tious at New Orleans. He was “bulling’’
aud “bearing” during their sojurn for
the purpose of making money out of
state securities, and was perfectly con
scious at all times that the troops would
eventually be withdrawn, and that Pack
ard must necessarily retire. After din
ing with the President aud Cabinet at
the White House, and discussing the
situation generally, the Commission dis
solved aud each member went to his
home, leaving Mr. Hayes with the en
tire responsibility of the settlement as
made, resting upon him. In conversa
tion with Gen. Grant at the reception
given him by the members of the Metri
politan Church, of which Mrs. Grant
has been a member since she came to
Washington, he expressed a regret
that Congress should have to be conven
ed now in advance of a prolonged test of
Mr. Hayes experiment, rather than in
December, by which time events and
not debates of partisans would form and
mould public opinion. He expressed
himself favorably to the President, and
believes that the true welfare of the
colored man lies in the removal of every
cause of antagonism between them and
the whites. This reception was held in
the parlors of the pastor, Dr. Newman,
and was a pleasant social, wholly devoid
of formality, hence Gen. Grant discussed
the political situation without the slight
est reserve when addressed in regard to
it. When Congress convenes under the
call for extra session we will have lively
times, as every “buncombe” speaker as
yet approached informs us that he is
fully alive to the importance of the issues
and will fully elucidate the problems
involved to the satisfaction of the whole
country in the speech he is preparing.
Randall will be beaten in his canvass for
the Speakership. He has the strongest
support as yet, but the opposition now
promise to combine, and thereby effect
his defeat. To us it matters little who
of the Democrats becomes speaker since
in any event the Committees will be so
arranged as to give the fullest one-sided
partisan cast to them, and we dare say
talent or ability of any nature will not
be asked for in the various chairmen
thereof, if we may judge the future by
the past Congress. When such lawyers
as Proctor Krott are selected for the
Judiciary we are positive talent is not
the great desideratum of the Democracy,
and the Republican party can well feel
a pride that a Bingham was its choice
WHITE HOUSE HATTERS.
The President received a call recently ]
from a Mrs. Sarah Davis, who has shak
en hands with all the Presidents, and
who, when a girl, saw Washingtou lay
the corner-stone of the Capitol. She
was unable to go up stairs to the execu
tive room, so Mr. Hayes came down
stairs to see her and to express his hopes
that she might live to shake hands with
several of his successors. Washington
has always been her home, and her
mind is stored with reminiscences of the
city, as it has changed under her obser
vation, from a mere trading post into a
great metropolis. Mrs. Hayes concedes
a little wine for the stomachs sake for
titled foreigners, at her State dinners.
She is determined to preach as well as
to preach temperance at her table. It
is an innovation that will require a good
deal of “amiable stubbornness” to en
force, for the American stomach has an
undoubted capacity, and inclination for
something stronger than tea, coffee and
chocolate, and we will see whether she
can withstand the pressure, for it will
be difficult indeed to extend the favor to
the foreigner to the exclusion of the
cifizeu,especially when this citizen comes
in the person of the average Congress
man whose appetite for alcohol increases
in the ratio at which his brains decrease
from the nominal standard. That con
necting link between life and death in
the person of Alexander H. Stephens,
called upon the President to tender his
thanks for the course pursued towards
Louisiana and South Carolina. The old
statesman is very feeble and could not
leave his carriage. Mr. Hayes met him
in the vestibule, where the two inter
changed views for a few minutes.
is here bidding good bye to all his old
friends, aud the reception at Dr. New
man's was given that he might meet the
members once more. He called on Mr.
Hayes, being his first visit since the
inauguration. Mrs. Sartor-is will ac
company him to Europe, as her house
will be his home during his absence.
Mrs. Grant looks well, and is proud of
her grand-child and its interesting moth
er Nellie. Ulysses Jr., will go with his

THE NEXT BATTLE.
Exit the carpet-bagger: enter the of
fice-beggar. Six weeks of Hayes have
sufficed for the Southern question which
has kept the country in such turmoil
for twelve years. But he has next to
deal with an evil which has enrseu the
land for fifty years. It has been grow
ing ever since Andrew Jackson began
to reward his friend and punish his foes.
With every year it has intrench, u itself
more strongly in our party organization,
in our political habits, amt even in our
laws. A political Hercules in honesty
can not hope to cleanse these Augean
stables in a day. Can the civil service
be really reformed ? That is t lie ques
tion which, above all others, will test
the qualities of President Hayes aud
It will be forced into prominence at
once, by his adversaries if not by his
friends. The angry men who are curs
ing because “the President has sold
ont his party,” will presently find it con
venient to seek some other point of
attack than the President’s Southern
policy. Nursing every feeling of wrath
because of “the abandonment, of South
ern Republicans,” they will make open
war oily upon the reform which threat
ens to break tip the machine in all States
alike. To all the outs they will say,
“Reward for your devoted labors is
refused.” To all the ins they will say,
“Reform means, to cut your head off.”
For once it seems possible that the men
who have got office aud the men who
want office as a reward for personal or
party service may be rallied to do battle
under the same banner.
We shall hear a great deal, uo doubt,
oi “the one-armed soldier,” or his wid
ow or his children. It will be said that
it is abominably cruel aud ungrateful to
turn anybody out of office because he or
she is not needed or ia not competent.
Tears enough were shed to produce a
freshet in the Potomac when the num
ber of female clerks at the Treasury aud
Interior Department was reduced last
week. Correspondents who passionate
ly demanded reform before the election
now borate unsparingly the Cabinet offi
cer who wants to reform anywhere in
particular—and would bei ate the Presi
dent if they dared. It is very strange,
too, that every man or woman that was
turned out happened to be, according to
some Senator or Representative or edi
tor or other influential person, au “abso
lutely ■ indispensable” person, aud “one
of the best clerks in the service. ” Out
of hundreds who went, Messrs. Schurz
and Sherman did not happen to'hit a
solitary one who ought to have gone.
So it will be to the end of the chapter.
The place to begin reform is somewhere
else. The average politician prefers
reform where the afflicted person
thought it most desirable to have a boil,
‘"on some other man’s nose.”
Not less zealous, but vastly numer
ous, will be the people who want pay
for party services. The five thousand
men who “first suggested the name of
Hayes” are all dead, it seems, because
he does not recognize that as a qualifi
cation for office. But none the less the
great army of men who have done some
thing for a Senator or a Representative
or any influential politician are rushing
to the front to get recommendations.
To the distress o ' these patriots, it is
noticed that the Piesidentis not prompt
with his appointments. By the time
the Senate meets, the murmurs of thou
sands will swell into a roar.
All the outs and all the ins who know
that they ought to be out, all the jobs
that exist and all the jobs that want to
exist, will be rallied with the carpet bag
ger and his friends for a grand assault
upon this administration. Every 7 step
toward the real reform of the public
service will be resisted. Every selection
of dangerous men who mean business
in reform will be defeated if possible
in the Senate. For each case there will
be reasons plenty as blackberries. But
for all there will be one motive—
to break down if possible the Adminis
tration which has become hated and
feared because it is trying to keep its
pledges and do its duty. The assulfc
will fail, we trust. But it will be a
desperate one. To defeat it will re
dnire not only resolutionsbnt an infinite
deal of patience.—TV. I". Tribune.
Carpenter and Washburn have been
writing a series of “open letters” to
each other lately. The following from
the State Journal, we believe, expresses
the sentiments of the general public on

THE STATE TICKET.
The question of who shall receive the
j nomination for governor for the Repnl)
i licau ticket in the nest campaign is he
| giniug to receive attention trom the
i press of thestatc. A considerable num
ber favor the re-nomination of Governor
liudington as lie has discharged the du
ties of hia office to the general satisfac
tion. Others intimate that it may be
j well to try anew man. The Fox Fake
! Representative, while speaking well of
i Gov. Lndiugton’s administration, thinks
that there are good reasons why Gov.
liudington should not be a candidate
| for renomination; and one of these is,
I it says, Wm. E. Smith, who had many
| friends in the Convention in 1875, re
fused to let his name be used as the
■ nomination, with the understanding
| from Gov. Fudmgton’s friends that if
| nominated without opposition he would
j not be a candidate bar renomination,
j Asa general thing, such agreements aio
j of a nature not calculated to promote the
j purity of politics or the general welfare
| of parties; but if made personal honor
and party harmony and success demand
that they shall bo rigidly fulfilled.
Whether such an agreement was really
made, we have no definite knowledge;
j although such was the common report
! and belief at the time of the convention
j and since.
The success of the Republican ticket
this fall depends upon its character, aud
i the harmony of the parry in its support;
• and nothing should be done in making
| that ticket to gratify personal ambition
| at the expense of that harmony. We say
! this is the interests of the Republican
i party, and not in favor of or against any
' individual. We expect to give our
! hearty support to the nominees of the
! republican convention, aud we are
j anxious only such selections shall be
' made as will challenge support by their
• character and abilities, and ensure the
j harmony of the party. The interests
; of the state and of any party worthy to
! live are of far more importance than the
! ambition of any man or clique. With
i a strong ticket, and harmony in its sup
-1 port a complete Republican victory is
j almost certain; without these the result
|at best is doubtful.— Wisconsn.
A Cleveland, 0., dispatch of the 2911i
On Friday last a party of sportsmen
! from this city, while gunning along the
j Fake shore at Euclid Village, ten miles
east of here, found the dead body of a
man on the beach. The body was con
siderably burned on the back, one leg
was broken, and the other leg had a
large flesh wound. The head was perfect
and covered with black hair, and full
black whiskers. There was no clothing
on the body but a pair of boots. The
persons present had no idea whose body
it might be, and as it was already de
composing they dug a grave near by and
buried it. After the burial a descrip
tion of the body was told at the railroad
station and it was at once recognized as
that of P. P. Bliss, of Chicago, who
was lost on Friday night, Dec. 29th, at
Asht übnla in the great railroad accident.
The theory is that the body was frozen
to a cake of ice and carried up the lake
to the point where it was found. Euclid
is fifty miles west of Ashtubula.

Permanent Photographs—Printed in Carbon.
The?e pictures differ from the common photograph
in many respects—they never fade or lose their ori
ginal color. Chromotypes are made np by a mixture
of gelatine and imperishable coloring substances
that may he transferred to paper, glass, porcelain
and other similar mateiial ; hence they are us dura
ble as steel engravings, and arc in every respect pre
ferable to the present photograph, as* they can be
kept for ages without undergoing the least change.
The undersigned has purchased the exclusive pat
ent-right for tho production of these pictures in
Manitowoc County, and will be happy to show cus
tomers samples ot this new invention and also take
orders for their make. Call by all means and see
these things of beauty that last forever.
