Some of the Difficulties Atteaslag Its Publication During the Fever. (Jacksonville, FIa., Times-Union.) The attention of both the clergy and the laity of the Protestant Eplisepal Church, especially in the South, is call ed to that publication which thechurach meat ,f+ Florida justly regard Withtli* much pride, -the Church Year. It one ot,the very best eoa4acted lsll newspapers in tbhSuttb, ably edit and successfully maans . It is pub. lished herein J~iii , its specila aim being ther ideirpeaibnt of thq church in the dioceses in the ottthib But its Influence extends into all State and all communities where churchened are found. It Is worthy of note that the oficave of the Church Year Company bave been foremost among thetree men who have devoted themselves to the care e4 the slek and suffering, night and days throughout the entire epidemle. The editor, Rev. R. H. Weller, D. D, w, among the active workers stricken with the disease. He was a member of the General Relief Committee, and iq charge of one of the most linportait districts tn the whole eity. He is noW fully recovered and at his desk ugei. The Rt. Rev. E. G. Weed, Q, T. I). President of the company, is only just up from's severe attack; he was chubre man of the Relief Committee and one of the most indefatigable workers In the whole Auxiliary Association. Col, J. J. Daniel, vice-president of this company, and who organised and was chosen president of the Auxiliary As sociation for the care and distribetion of the epidemic funds, gave his life ln the cause of his follew men. Mr. 8. F. Hall, the foreman in the composing room is Just now convalescing from a severe attack. Of the whole force of compositors only three now remain. Yet through all this series of disaster the Church Year never missed a single essue. It has come out regularly, and as full of readable matter as ever. The Church Year is a sixteenlpage weekly, published at the low'rate of $1 per year. It ought to be in teim hatl ly of every churchmen and especially in the South. Its ability, vigor, and enterprise should have ample recogni tion and support. It needs this now more than ever before, for, like all other Jacksonville enterprises It has suffered financially during the preva lance of the fever. Its friends should see to it that its claims are presented everywhere, for it Is surely deserving of a hearty support. 1Mr. F. W. Mumby, Its live buseness manager, though burdened with the cares of his private business and the duties of his position as purchasing agent of the Relief Committee, has still found time to devote to the interests of this publication. A Political Retrospect. [Pioayuno.] Now thast the late general election has dropped sufficiently into the past to enable Democrats to study the re suits impassionately, they are begin ning to recover from the consternation the result at first engendered. In the light of the corrected returns the defeat has been by no means as crushing as was at flrst supposed, and although the opposing party was inducted into power on the strength of the electoral vote, it is plain that the Democracy's defeat was not the result of the popular verdict. Although Mr. Harrison has been elected by a good majority of electoral votes, and after.the manner prescrilbed by the constitution, still Mr. Cleveland received a full 100,000 popular votes more than his opponent. He even largely exceeded his own poaular ma jority in 1884, while Mr. Harrison re ceived less votes than were cast for Blaine at the same election. A study of these facts must convince every Democrat that there is no real cause for discouragement and that there is nothing indicated in the late election's results that presages disastrous results to the party, or threatens that any in surmountable obstacles have been placed in the way of an early return to power. Although it must be admitted that the Democracy has apparently lost ground in some of the doubtful States, owing, probably, to a liberal use of money more than to any other cause, it is equally apparent from the returns that these losses have been more than offset by surprising gains in Republian strongholds. The Republican majority of 42,000 in Michigan in 1881 has been reduced to 22,000. In Ohio a majority of 81,000 has shrunk to 19,000, and in California their majority was but 7000 agalinst 13,000 in 1884. In New Hampshire the Democratic gains have been so great that the State will in future con tests be considered one of the political battle grounds. Although a month has elapsed since the election, it is not yet definitely set. tletl what the Itapublican majority will be in the next Congress. The latest returns indicate that the next House will be organized by the Re publicans with a majority of three membhers. This is, of course, not a working majority. As the Republicans claimed a ma jority of twenty-five, it is evident that their victory has not been as sweep ing as they hadl hoped, and if they de sire tt mold legislation in their own itaerest, it is evident that they will have to lroceed to unseat a number of Democrats. This alternative Is, of course, attendant with disgreeblhe] features, as it Is apt to bring odlum; upon the party resorting to such ex-" pedients. Although the Republicans, after the; 4th of March next, will be In fill conr trol of all the branches of the govern meet, it is evident 1r0.3 tbeeletlo., returns that the s.l raey ip stillth party of the peope'; n'oyrlegth e otheooolouslnsib of this bwill' ie able to organise a pieoease~peiltloo both in (Uggasse ea4 out of i. MAOin a lonZ's fINDICATE. Three New York Caphtalsats Interested I in the Developmeat *f eit e osasras Graut. I [New Orleans States] A States reporter In. coveemeti with an Intlsate friend of Major E. A I Burke, ascertained that Major Bark had at last succeeded in forming i syne dlcte fur the development of the con I cosslone recently granted to him by t a President of Spanish Hoadusan. T c oolpeapioen metioned is s large Aret o lnau drained by.a gold bearinl re I large qusnitltsaof gold having airsad hiro weabed out of the mad tike c fIral the bed of the river. I " The persons composinu the eyed g amr Mr. Mills, the wealthy New York capitalist; Mr. Inman, the well-knowt Tennessee millionaire, and one of th priclpal owners of the Georgal Pa6ll rilrouad; COc, B. T. Wilseo, preelden a of the Mississippi Valley railroad, I Major E. A. Burke. The capital of the syndicate, it t4 r understood, Is 600,000, and it is the s purpose to expend a large sum o$ money in the engineering feat of turn a log the river out of its natural bed e4 that the gold can be taken out by placer mining. I An expert engineer has already made a survey of the river, it is stated t sad has made s report to the oese a that the paiss to chasge the corse s river and to leave a large portlo of U l( bed high and dry is perfeetly feasible Iiti the' eeassary money was furnished t with which to do the work, It is s stated. that the value ato the river as a gold bearing stream was irst diseovo ered by the Honduras Indiana who succeeded in getting considerable gold by washing the sand taken from the bars nla common pans. I The reporter was Informed that I Messrs. Mills, Wilson and Ioman are c very much impressed with the value I of Major Burke's concession and are I determined to develop it to the fallest I extent. The necessary papers formaing the syndicate have been drawn up and will be signed this week In New York. c WILL AN AMERICAN BE POPE 1 Reasons Why the United States or Can ada Should Paratnis Pope Leo's Successor. i An Ottawa, Oat., speelal says: Michael Vidal, formerly a member of congress from Louisiana and a well known diplomatic agent, is in Ottawa. t He was a member of the commissilo which settled the claims of the Hudson Bay Company against the United States government in 1868 and 1860 and has been commissioner to Peru r and consul at Tripoli. Ie has lately 3 been several years in Italy. Alluding to the pope's great age, he asserted that the oonsensus of opinion among a the cardinals Is that the next pope must not be an Italian. In Paris Mr. t Vidal spoke to Mr. Cornelly of the I Gaulotls, an authority on papal policy. I Mr. Cornelly had found, as had Mr. i Vidal, that many cardinals at Rome favored COrdinal Gibbons of Baltimore as Pope Leo's successor, believing that the United States would support as struggle for the restoration of the tem. poral power. The objections to ehoos I log a pope from any European state are many, and of course political. Another although less popular choice l would be Cardinal Tasebereau of Que. I bee. Cardinal Taschereau occupies a unique and strong position as a British subject, and yet Is one who would be regarded by France as a Frenchman. He would thus elicit thesympathy and support of two powerful nations, En gland and France. Cardinal Tasebe reau Is sufficiently liberal to satisfy ad vanced parties ln Europe, and It would not be surprising to find his name among those of the nominees at the next election for pope. It goes without rsaying that the in comilg Republlesa admialstration will have a friendly feeling for and keep a kindly eye upon the South. Southern men are our brethren; they are more to us Northerners than all the world besides. We have met Ibena in debaste, upon the field of battle, in various con troversies that will of necessity make themselves manifest in a great nation such as ours is. And we have found the 8outherner,, in the main, honors. ble opponents in war-firm friends and kind brothers when war was over. lS, fellow.Raepublilcans, let us have charity for the South and consideration for her condition. She has a mixed popula tion, with which we in the North do not have to deal to any considerable extenti. Let that fact be taken into consideration.-Albany Journal.
