He has lieen mak ing speeches recently, declaring to the European world the impregnable position That Germany holds by reason of her In vincible armament. The French and Russian governments, who also take pride in their powerful armies and forth rations, uy liable to resent this assumed superiority. At any rate the cause of peace is not much advanced by such vain glorious boosting. The Greenback delusion is again re vived. A call has been issued for a national convention to be held at Clneim nati September 12. Political economy offers no mere unsound theory than that value can be given to currency by flooding the country with newly-printed green backs. Easily infini ed currency, we are taught by the country's best statesmen without regard to party, is always to lie avoided. Tet the greenback party wants to put a Presidential candidate in the field av hose platform advocates more money nnd more surplus, while the country is striving for,a reduction of the surplus. The report, comes across the river that ex Senator Sowall will try to re enter the United States Senate next winter sus the successor of the Democratic Senator Mc Pherson. General Sowall is an out and out protectionist, which is his only merit; bnt he would be anything else if it paid him. He belongs to that class of men who can Ixi all things to all men. Ho is a railroad lawyer who is willing to sacri fee his s',ate and his party at any time for the sake of his wealthy and powerful «d ont. The protectionists of New Jersey have a capital prospect of securing another United States Senator for the defence of the common cause, provided General Bewail stays out of the fight. No party can win in a doubtful state with a rail road lawyer to the front. It was our misfortune on last Friday afternoon, in sjieaking of Every Even ing's attitude towards Commissioner Hickman, to be thoroughly misunder stood. Thoroughly. In the first place we had the very best intentions in point ■ ing out to our contemporary the ugly light in which its conduct appeared. We want«! io faxe H frwn getting ini« trouble. Onr solicitude for the good reputation of the journals of Wilmington led ns to give to Every Evening tlie advice that all our «scellent purposes went for nothing. Every Evening misunderstood ns and got very mad. It made an exhi bition of itself. It lest sight of all sense p i dignity and even decency. It was «hocking. It gave renewed evidences of a sluggish circulation. In the second place tho Sunday Star misunderstood ns. In the column of "The Man About Town, " where the editor of our Sunday contemporary relieves himself of all those feelings and mental ebullitions which would look out of place in an editorial column, we are accused of calling Every Evening a liar. This is a very stnpid charge We ore not guilty of such rude ness. The EvtiNiso JOURNAL is edited by gentlemen. did. But we WHICH IS THE TRUTH ? Onr friends, the common enemy of in dustrial Wilmington, leaned back heavily in the last issue of Every Evening upon their age and record. Age is a good at tainment so long as it has not developed into dotage, and a record is a nice thing to have if it is consistent. Unfortunately tor our friends, tlie common enemy of in dustrial Wilmington, their record not very fur hack shows marked inoon *istencies. For example, Every Evening on September 26, 1887, said: "It is but justice to the municipal and polie*' authorities of the city of Wil mington for Every Evening to say that the detectives who were employed by it to ferret out the gambling and policy playing here were given instructions to follow every clue—no matter where it might lead—to show who were in any way interested in the business, pnd that none were struck which led up to or in wolved any one in official position." Every Evening of May 26, 1888, said: "It is quite true that a number of Aida upon the gamblers were made without Chief Dougherty being apprised of the fact. He knew nothing of the big 'haul' led By Every Evening's detectives in'Septem ber last. The information was purposely kept from him, upon the advice of tlie detectives. After they had worked here two months among the gamesters, they gained very strong impressions that it would he imprudent at least to acquaint Mr. Dougherty with the affair in any way. ' Which of these two statements is true? Did Every Evening tell the truth on Sep ten; 1 st 86, 1887, and then condescend to libel on May 26, 1888, when it anxious that a near relative of its wus owner and controller should become mayor of Wilmington instead of ex-Chief of Police Doughertyl Or did it tell the trnlh last -May, but had told an untruth on the pre vious September 30 for the purpose of . ■ shielding, not the Democratic parly in . general, but that small contingent of it I which some persons dignify with the j name of the Bates faction? Will Every 1 ,( Evening be kind enough to tell an i jsux.ou* public wueu n. void me truth and when it was prevaricating? Pro!, •bly it would be better for onr friends the common enemy of industrial Wii Tr'nff'.* '.c» t aCUavvA to uuiii i. is which. A simple statement in Every Evening would be received with con siderable doubt. So swear to it, gentle men, swear to it; and please quit swear ing at us. .

They either fl j the union jack or the French ensign, and are controlled by foreign capital. Such a thing hi « an American steamship is hard to find, and It is all duo to the short sighted, timid policy of the American Congress. The continued existence of these four ocean greyhounds is made a possibility only by the aid that their governments give them in the shape of compensation for carrying the mails. Mo»*.

Once when Professor Lewis was follow ing a long outcrop of igneous ns'ks lie entered Bucks county, these rocks perhaps seventy miles, ami was perfectly familiar with them, he visitmi this county in search of facts. Then lie attempted to summarize his elusions in a paper to be read before the American Philosophical found as he proceeded that an element of doubt still existed in his ifiind; that there was yet a weak point in his series of observations. So he left Iris desk and again visited Bucks county, and drove over some twenty miles of eountry for the necessary data for tho completion of his paper. No trouble was b him. He loved the truth. He died when not yet 3«, bnt he had won a high place among American geolo gists.

And It I, Thought the Congressional In vestigating Committee That Is honking I'p Immigration Abuses Will Find Mach That Is Worth hooking Into There. HERE are from 8,000 to 10,000 Ital iO/iis in Boston. They work on the railroads, grind hand organs, make plaster figures, sell fruit, gather rags and do anything else that they can make a living at. But these are their principal occupa tions. / si How much does it cost them to live! Not much. At the immigration inves tigation at New York an Italian immigrant who bad been induced to leave his nativesoil testified that be could live in New York city on 15 cents a day by practicing economy. For 25 cents a day he could live comfortably. Perhaps this is not a fair example of what it costs an Italian In a largo city to live. Let ns consider what he eats. Then fruit, a few vegetables, but rarely any meat. Macaroni is one of the cheapest of food products, nnd one of tho most tritious. First, macaroni. I m An Italian macaroni factory, by tho way, is a curious place to visit. There are a number of them in Boston. Maearoni is made by hand from flour and water. The dough is put into a cylinder about eighteen inches in diameter, the bot tom of which is filled with boles. Then the dough is pressed through. Tho holes iu the the macaroni are made by placing wires through the holes in tho cylinder. The enroni is then taken to u floor above and dried, when it is ready for use. Only Ital ians can make maearoni. Of course the quality of that made in Boston does not equal that made in Italy. There they do it differently. The grain grown iu southern Italy is better adapted for thu purpose. It contains more gluten than tho grain of more northern countries. Tho wheat is ground in a mill and is then sifted five times. What is left from the hist sifting makes, of course, the finest quality of macaroni. Then it is made into dough and kneaded. There two different ways of kneading. One is to put a pole into a perpendicular post in the ground. Tho pole acts ns a lever, and tho dough is placed in a vessel under one end to which is attached an instrument which, when worked by a man or woman at the other end, churns it to proper degree of stiffness. An other way of kneading is to pile up the dough and walk over it with tho bare feet. The best macaroni is made this way. But peo ple iu this country will bo g kid "to learn that most of the macaroni we eat is made iu New York by a new process, a history of which would contain no disgusting suggestion. But to return to tho subject. ci er ■ Tho Italian's food costs him but little; a few cents per day will cover it Now con C, , / M % v m \ t ( [Siïli ÎS? JO? A. b|B r md 1 » Mi •> .F v, ITALIAN PLASTER WORK, aider how ho lives. Iu Boston the Italian population inhabits one part of tho city. The Italian families live in tenements, usually three families to a room. Two families iu a room is "aristocracy. "common people," so that tho Italians rent costs him but little. In regard to his clothes, you can see for yourself. Look at the gar ments of tho grinder os he stands in front of your window and works away at "Sweet Violets. year, more likely $15. Three families is IVrhajie his clothes cost him $25 a The employments of the Italians ore en demic—that is, peculiar to themselves. Did you ever see au American organ grinder) The Italian is at) work early in the morning. He takes opt his organ and starts out on his round. In tho summer time the majority of tho hurdy gurdy men go out in tho country and return at night. Their organs cost all the way from $73 for a fairly good one to $600 for a nice piano. The average is about $100. Some of tbworgans are made in this country. Some are imported from England aud some come from Italy. Tlie monkeys --those agile animals that delight the chil dren—are picked up in various places. They are bought from sailors occasionally, but generally obtained from dealers. Sometime« tlie Italian dispenses with his band organ and takes to monkeys altogether. There is a man iu Boston who has trained a let of mon TT f 'Irr 1 m\ s /I ^ I \w 'fCiSLJ A ROOMFUL or MONKEYS, keys and who eats and sleeps in tho same room with them. On one side of the room nre tho monkey s. There are seven or eight of them confined in cages on the wall. On the other side is the Italian. Tho interven ing space is occupied with a stove, a cradle, broken harps, stools, a bureau and other things, which take up all the available space. Vv uat a place to live bit Bat in Boston, es in other large cities where Italians congregate, there are other employment* besides organ grinding and ex kvil.it ing monkevs, Gut ot the most profitable employments it fruft selling. On© vender »-as asked how * "Oh. I don't know," "Soma daya 1 maka live a dolla, soma daya ten a dolla, soma daya fifteen a dolla." Now the question naturally arises: If tin Italian can make $5 a day and it costa liiu: less than $1, what dues he do with the bal ance? It has been cor tended that ho sends his savings back to Italy. But there aie notable instances in Boston where Italians have ac cumulated property, have built houses and have, to all appearances, forgotteu that tbeii mother country ever existed. The Italian's love of art, ns well as his eai for music, is illustrated by his employment. Boston has its quota of Italian plaster workers. They make brouzo vases, figures, ornaments, etc. Two men and a boy are all that are necessary for the work. One man does the molding while the other finishes and puts on the bronze. The boy goes over the work and touches up the spots, and makes himself otherwise generally useful. "_ of the highly ornamental kind are sold for sixty cents a pairi Smaller ones bring from thirty to fifty cents a pair, as much as the seller can get for them. Boston has its army of ragpickers. If accurate estimate of the amount of money represented by the findings of ragpickers in Boston could be made the results would be amazing. This is the woman's field.

It re quires the best of lungs and the toughest of olfactories. The "queen" has twelve chil dren. She occupies a basement and first floor.

Alvin Paterson Hovey, named by tho Republicans of Indiana for governor, is a native ami resident of Posey county. This county became celebrated, early in tho cen tury, by the foundation of the Rappites (Communists) at New Harmony. In due time their society "run out," and Robert Owen and his Scotch Lanarkers succeeded. They failed, of course; but Indiana gained the talents of Rotiert Dale Owen and his brother, the noted geologist, and New Har mony is still a place of curious interest Alvin P. Hovey was bom on tho Ohio river side of the county, and his boyhood was spent in Mount Vernon, tho county seat. His youth was one of poverty, and his education only that o f tho common schools, but h o studied law andvSSj y-St? was admitted to the bar in 1843, at tho ago of twenty-two. His polities were Democratic, and as a Democrat he was chosen to the Indiana constitutional conven tion of 1850, aud circuit judge of tho Third judicial circuit from 1851 to 1854 aud judge of the supreme court of the state for a term. From 1866 to 1858 he was United States dis trict attorney for Indiana. Soon after came the war and ho entered tho service early as colonel of the Twenty-fourth Indiana volun teers. His military career was remarkably brill iant, and his services in the field were quite equaled by his ability as civil administrator of districts in which he held command. His ready application of the principles of law to the exigencies of the military situation were of immense advantage to the government. April 28, 1862, ho was appointed brigadier general of volunteers, and in tho Vicksburg campaign of 1863 he won high honors. Gen. Grant credits him with tho success at Cham pion HilL Tho next year he was brevetted major general for distinguished services. In 1865 ho retired from tbo army, and was ap pointed minister to Peru, which place he re signed in 1870. In 1886 he was elected to congress as a Republican. He is 67 years old, and still in vigorous health. His oppo nent. Col. C. C. Matson, is also a soldier of good record, and the two will undoubtedly make this year's Indiana campaign exceed ingly lively. The portrait of Gen. Hovey here given is from a wartime photograph. 3 'AJ ->#*• vM-: 3 t> A. P. HOVEY. Count Von Moltke's Snuff. During the winter of 1870-71, Count von Moltko, while his headquarters were at Ver sailles, ran short of snuff. Failing to find any "sneeshin" of the brand he liked in tho local tobacco stores, he instructed a sub ordinate at tho war office in Berlin to forward him a packet of his "own peculiar" rappee. The snuff was bought, paid for, sent to Ver sailles, and duly charged to the account of the nation. When the time came for examin ing tho book, after peace had been concluded, the official intrusted with tho revision of the accounts of the war office came upon this startling item: "For one pound of extra flue, with-of-Tonquin-bean-perfume-highly-impre gnated snuff, by his excellency, Count von Moltke, commanded, three thalers, seven and a half silbergroschen." The auditor would not pass this unprecedented item, but made a memorandum of tho entry, referred it to his superior, with the suggestion that as snuff could not be held to bo a material nor ammunition of war, it could not bo saddled upon tbe national exchequer. The item and tho suggestion passed from one official to an other until it came to the crown lawyers, who gave their opinion that the state could not pay the snuff claim. Von Moltko was officially addressed and requested to pay for his snuff and he at once complied with the demand.—Tho Argonaut.
