The New York Tribune lias rcecntU

upon the repudiation of their debts hy
Southern States, and their publication
is hardly ended before the result of the
election in Virginia comes to bring sad
confirmation of the inferences contained
in the articles.
General Singleton, of Illinois, is of
opinion that the Solid South has per-!
Jiaps gone too far, and that tho coining

That's the Sextixfl's platform, ex
actly. Trevious to tho Grant reception at
Chicago last week, tho editor of the
Chicago News, a non-political paper,
telegraphed the Governors of the var
ious Statss and a large number of
prominent ex-Confederates, suggesting
that they send General Grant con
gratulations on his return to the Uni
ted States. All the Governors, without
regard to politics, sent pleasant respon
ses; and nearly all tho ex-Confederates
did tho same, including Alexander II.
.Stephens, who sent a highly flattering
dispatch. But that firm and unwaver
ing Democrat, Hob Toombs of Georgia,
who is one of the loudest of the "sol
id south" howlers, displayed his old
venom by sending tho- following:
"M. E. Stone. Hdltor Your telegram receiv

-"like a gentleman." There arc some uu-

which occasion the spans were covered
with engines as closely as they could

them to ten times the weight likely to

were regarded as entirely satisfactory.
At tho time of the disaster a freight
train of nineteen cattle cars, all loaded,
was passing over tho bridge from tho
west. Just as the engine' reached the
eastern pier the span gave way, preci
pitating seventeen cars and the caboose
into tho river, ninety feet below. The

Tho span will be immediately rebuilt

it only a question of timo when, not
withstanding tho immense cojtoltnc

OUR BOY THAT WAS TOO HEAII
AT PLYMOUTH OAK i'ARM.
Don't wait for something to "tttra
up," but take hold and turn it up for
yourself; it isn't hard. No time for
nonsense. Come to 11. P. Zook & Co.,
Forest, City and sec what it is to bt
alive. Why wasteyour money by being
satisfied with the first store"- you comw
to? Take a few moments more, and!
go where there- w an as.sortracnt of
goods, and wherepu can save at lea-t
one profit. Unless you have much
more money than you know what to do
withTit is good policy to turn, about
and find some spot where a dollar will
.spread out to the greatest extent.
We think there is xuch a place, an.l
rather strong in onr' convictions that
ourslslhe one. If yon visit us and '
not find more goods and lower pricaa
than elsewhere, and feel like goii-y

the other hand, Mr. Carlisle thinks,
should bo mnde a State at once, bo-
causo "it has sent an unbroken line of
Democratic Representatives to Congress
ever since its admission as aTerritory."
Thus it appears that the true qualifica
tion of a Territory for admission to the
Union is unswerving Democracy.
The coat is clearing for Garfield's
election to the Senate. Governor-elect
Foster tells "Gath," of The Cincinnati
Enquirer, that Secretary Sherman will
write a letter in a few days declining to
be a candidate for the position. "I don't
believe," adds Mr. Foster, "that Stanley
Matthews expects it. Taft has hopes,
as usual. Dennison will make a pretty
good push for the place, but I think
von may say it will be r.- walk-over for
GarnOld- Ho has some opposition in
the southern part the State. Halstcad
doesn't like him, and sonic of the iron
and tariff men aro opposed to him.
Hut ho is a sound Republican, and all
the north of the State is warmly for him.
He will get it."
IIenduicks lias broken out again
with his old complaint. He says once
more that ' 'tis treason" to oppose a
solid North to a solid South; calls the
President n "fraud" and a "sneak," and
