Cards furnished on application. VR1IHT, MARCH -O, 1801. Thk Irish immigrants and collectors ob tained $4,000 for the Parnell side of the cause at the meeting in New York last night. There seems te he little doubt that tbe election of Felton to succeed Senator Hearst as Senator from California, was Accomplished by bribery. A paper con taining the names of the members of the Legislature and strong suggestive evl dence that they were to ' be seen",orthat their favor had been already secured by tbe ready and convincing argument of gold. _ Thk appointment of ex-Councilman Samuel H. Chambers as a director of the Stieet and Sewer Department is an ad - mirable one. Mr Chambers was an hon est, energetic and efficient member of the City Connell for two terms, and was a clerk In the city auditor's office under Judge Ball a id clerk lu the tax col lector'« office under E. P. Moody. In all of these capacities he ^dld excellent ser vice. He is fitted specially for the office to wLich be has just been pointed by the knowledge aud experience gained In the other positions be has held, Mr. Chambers is an ardent, Repub lican, but not an unfair and bitter par tisan. Inasmaeh as tbe appoiutmeut was controlled by a Republican mayor and a good Democrat could not have tbe office, we congratulate Mr Cbambera on hts success and feel assured that we express the feelings of the majority of Democrats and citlsens generally in expressing our own good wishes We have received a letter signed "Re publican" with a uame "on the side" which Is not in the city directory quoting tbe Evening Journal's state ment that "Democracy makes fair and jnst laws for the people" and asking "why the Democrats do not do justice to the liquor dealers?" The letter continues aud states that tbe ltqnor dealers pay t he highest license and mike liberal snbsorip tlons for campaign purposes, and hence they should not be legislated against, nor treated unjustly They ebonld not be legislated nor treated unjustly not because tley eubsetibe to the campaign fund, but because it is not right or jnst. It, is Impossible to suppress the liquor traffic, hence the legislation directed by spite or hostility for annoy ance is neither wise nor jnst in itself and does sot promote the cause of temper ance The legislative action of the Democratic party has tended to restilct the liqncr traffic, to promote temperance, and still do justice to a respectable class of citizens wLo aie cngagi d in a legiti mate business. np The spectacular defence of Wefcjtt, the zttorney appointed by the court to defend the negro Lingo in Camden reached a fitting climax yesterday, when he slashed his band with the rtzor to show Its keenness to the imelligenl jury. It seems that a man with ordinary powers of observation who bad not bad any expe rience with a razor might be made to comprehend tha' it bad a keen edge, and that it applied to the hand with slight force would produce an ugly wound and cause a copious flow of blood But Lawyer Wescott does not seem to bave had that much confid once in tbe intell grnce of thejnryor worse, he was making a spectacle for the spectators in the court ro m, hoping it ■would excite emotions which would re fleet upon the jury and gaiu sympathy for tbe man on trial for bis life. The effect of the entire trial, if It may be called a trial, has been to degrade the estimate of the jury in the minds of the people. The trial by jury iu the Lingo case, whatever the verdict may be, is a farce The same smug-faced, cold-blooded deception and swindling <n the Interest of the "old soldier" which has looted the national treasury and swelled tha pensl- n list to such enormous proportkn» l.r.s beeu prevalent in dealing with the robbery of the syndicate which hat been plundering the soldiers' orphans iu Penn sylvania. The Legislature his finally been forced to ordtr an investigation with the intention of compelling the men who have looted the treasury and got rich off of the soldiers' orphans to disgorge It is passing belief almost that tbe mockery of this hypocritical solicitude for the "old soldier " his widow and his orphans could he used so long and to tnch an extent among intelligent people. But the evidence introduced in the Pennsylvania House yesterday is a shame npon the state. This icign of plunderers bas been allowed to grow so powerfut that hereto fore it has been able to suppress inquiry. The same practices prevail in the pension office at Washington. The outcry against Tanner earned his dizmissai, bnt tbe abases nndei Raum have been even greater and beider, though Raum baa been more discreet and silent. It ia a startling evidence of the gen eral prevalence of loose morals that these •buses could exist. The pnblie indiffer ence to the fact that twenty-five years after the war is over the pension pay meats could increase by $70,000,000 in less than one year and that the list of pensions could grow from 400,000 to over k 700,000and still be growiug.is aiarve'.ous •nd beyond comprcheneion or explana tion. Of coarse, that is not honest pen *ioc-paying n > more than tha syndicate ot Pen&syivania, to whom the soldiers' orph ms' homes maintenanee was farmed out, were honestly working In the Inter est of the "old soldier's" orphans. They are simply taking advantage of the generosity of the people to rob the sol diers and th* people too. The evidences that the Republican party is abandoning its position on tbe tariff and on sectional legislation are abundant. Senator Ingalls has just far nished another interview on the situa tion,in which he answers with the gentle spirit aud coy methods of expression of a man patting himself in a receptive oondi'Ion for auything tbe fair and irre pressible damsel of Public Opinion may have to bestow. He is one of the most advanced of tbe lookouts who sees which way the wind is blowing. Just now he is bending his pregnant knees before the shrine of the Farmers' Al liance apparcnlly with the hope that, the pumpkin-headed goddess may stand in need of a Presidential candidate in 1892. Senator Ingalls his been growing weaker in his devotion to all those things that the Republican parly has become notori onr for advocating, reckless pendons, condemned subsidies, voted against force aud complaiely let down on the tariff robbery. If the Republic, ui« nominates candidate on an anti-silver platform, it is doubtful whether they can carry two states west of the Alleghenies » » « Especially have the views of the Western Republl cons undergone an esnential change the tariff question, and among them there is now a demand for revision aud reduction. Then he predicts that the Republicans will meet defeat iu Ohio next ysar. estimates the strength of the Farmers' AlUauce as enormous In Iowa, Iltluols, Ohio, Indiana and other Republican strongholds, and avers that the dis satisfaction with to causes whioh are important. Ingalls has recognized the change of sentiment and Is trimming his sails to the wind. If the other Republican poli ticians do not take heed in time they will meet the gale unprepared and be exposed to disasters which no one can foretell. THE MOUNTAIN AND MAHOMET The projected trip of President Harri son through the Southern and Western states, Including short stops la twenty two states of the Unton, Is expected to he productive of several good reenlts. There are two very widely different results either one or both of which would be welcome to the promoters of the Dinerary. The Presiaent's views and practices may be modified or the people may obtain a new impression of the President. The chief end to be accomplished by the trip Is that of securing Hurrlson delegates to the next national conven tion. It is not likely that the Presiden tial mind will receive deep or Dating Im pressions. For reacona well known the Presidential mind is not keenly alive to influences not in harmony with his pre conceived opinions, hence the chances of auy modification In that direction doubtful, and the strong reliauce Is that the trip will be preduettve of good re sults on the people. It is hoped that tbe mountain will come to Mahomet. Bnt to us there does not seem much hope that the trip will be productive of either of these desirable results. It does not seem that the people of tbe West can be so readily wheedled from the stand they have taken agaluBt Republican principles aud practices. There is nothing captivating In the ohancter or the person of President Har rison. - While be will receive the atten tion and courtesy which bis position de mands everywhere, he will not create a furor of enthus'asm which will bring baok the Farmers* Alliance people to the Republican party. They are too thoroughly arouBed to the effect of the législation of the Republican party in tariff robbery, pension recklessness, subsidy stealing and a general and per verse tendency to legislate for tbe classes of the Eaet tather than for the people anywhere, but especially for the people of the West How the President will conduct his campaign to satisfy the Western people that tbe Repnbtican party Is not to legis late against Western interests, no one can tell. He is estopped from the re ciprocity issue because that Is Blaine's thunder, and from the Force bill because that is Reed .' hope. The only mode or Indication he has given of the tack he will pursue wrs in saying that the people do not understand the McKinley btll and that they should give it a fair trial. It will be difficult to convince tbe farmers who seut the plain-spoken "eockless statesman" to Washington that they have a wrong conception of the tariff tax which increases the price of everything they buy. He has deprecated He said : I n 11 .' the party is due Senator •re Sold Liquor Without a Lltenit., The following persons were fined for drunkenness at the Municipal Court this morning: George Taylor, $! and coste, b muia Hopkins, colored, »3 ar:d costs; Fred.

There were two other eh-rges against the pris oner, but as the wltuess»s d'd not appear the cases were postponed for one week. Burglars Make Another Sweep. Thieves entered the house of J. Ham ilton Ayars, No UIS West.'SIghth street yesterday, and stole $1,600 worth of Jewelry. Nobody was in the bouse dur ing tbe dsy as Mr. snd Mrs. Ayars had been attending the funeral of Preston Ayars, the former's father. The ser vant also left at noon and it is thought the th'eves knew this »ad set their plans accordingly. When Mr. and Mrs. Avars returned home they found the furniture iu the second story overturned, ransacked and all the jawelcry gone. Nothing else was missing.

There is not a more genial man in the House than Representative Cranston, nor a better locking one Whenever ladies visit the Honse they immediately cast their eyes upon Mr. Cranston, as natur ally as they cast them npon Senator Ross, the genial young widower of the Senate chamber.

Why Will They he so Thoughtless and Careless Fveu About Maliers Ukttb Concern Their Beauty. The plainest f.-atures become pretty when clothed with a fresh, velvety skin. It Is In tbe power of every woman to hare a soft, fine skin, thus adding much to her charms, it ►he will devote a little time and care to her toilet. It should be a duty as well as a pleasure to every woman to enhance her power« of attractiveness. So says the hlgaest authority in London. But nothing can be more aliened than for any lady to try and !>e beautiful simply by powdering the face, or applying cream or ointment. These things are necessary It Is t rue: but something else is more Important Good, refreshing sleep. Warm circulating blood which nerer permits void feet or blue' noses. These things make beauty quicker than any powders or lotions can. Hut. my lady rearers say, how can this tie done? Keep the b-ood moving by some gentle stimulant, aDd for this purpose nothing is equal to pure whiskey.

ANNUAL IN STALMENTS. Ana suppose, in addition to this, the government wishing to make this the most desirable investment in the world should stipulate in the bonds not only to pay them at tbe end of the term, but in case of your previous death, to pay them to your family, and at the same time RELEASE THEM FROM PAYING ANY FUR THER INSTALMENTS. Would you not at once close with such an offer?
