Out friend Hersey ought to eml grate; what a voluminous adjunct be wonld make to Fonsesas forces. It Is quantity of verbal vigor he ueeds, not qnalltv._ Conrrbssman Dai-xell thinks the Democrats will attempt to pass a free silver bill, but that it will be defeated. The father of that thought is Senator John Sherman and the predlspedng cause of it is Mr Shermau's anxiety to get on wha*'he conceives to be the winning side for the Republicans and to distract at tention from McKInleylem.

Thk Swedenborglans believe that in sanity is tbe last state of the wicked. If that doctrine proves true regarding the tin plate cranks, the Force bill advocates and the McKinley brayers for prosperity over the taxation route we shall be con verted. The party which has beonme hysterical on those subjects Is certainly in a state of decadence and final dissolu tion must come sooner or later if faots and precedents are not misinterpreted. In sight of mauy thousand people Frauds MeCarry sprang from Brooklyn bridge for glory—and, to death. It is probably the best disposition be could have made of himself. A man who has that species of ambition is not a valus ble member of society, he is not likely to contribn'e anything to the fund of human knowledge and may contribute a few similar fools to Increase the world's population. A few years less Is no loss to him aud a great gain for society. The continuons reiteration of Dr. Briggs is bfcomtng tiresome. If we were not very careful and full of charitable amiability we might be beginning to sus pect that Dr. Briggs possibly might be something of a sensationalist. His case has come up before tbe church courts and he might suppress hit itch to reiter ate so frequently and preach the gospel that all sects agree upon, for a change. That wonld relieve him of a sensational notoriety, which is doubtless obnoxious to bim as a modest,; earnest man seeking truth and not selfish, foolish glory. "A oosi'Ki. of love" la what Dr. Park hnrat of New York pleaded for yeater day. He said "If the Presbyterian Church con Id have 60 per cent, of Its brains taken away and made into heart it wonld be a good thing. " S guage of commerce tbe Presbyterians sre long on brains and short on love. The candid preacher added that "Ohris-I tianity might bave said too that it is sometimes assumed aa a convenient and wonderfully Successful mask for sin and for various degrees of chicanery, but several philoso pliers got in ahead of him on that practl cal observation of the tendency human nature not peculiar to this genera tion though prevalent hereabouts. In the canvass for the speakership there is sn effort to nse the Tammany Hall and the Cleveland pleas for snd against Crisp and Mills respectively. Cleveland says hs Is neutral, and the Tammany Hall Representatives in Con gress, of whom there sre not more than three or five, will vote as salts them beet, like any other Representatives, az they hav« a perfect right to do. It is probably that they have their choice, but It makes little difference how they arrive at it fer both candidates are Gita of irrt In the lan y easily degenerates." Ha of They Are both proachable character, men of distinguished ability, they are Democrats who have both shown un snervlng, lntellgent and thoronghly loyal support to the principles and plat forms of the party, and the party and the conntry too woeld be safe with either. partisan and coarsely unfair like Reed and neither one will descend to the low and disbonoiable trickery of miscounting quibbles and undignified perversions and rbangsB of the rules to pass objections bie bills. Mills and Crisp are statesmen. will be Neither one Oub contemporaries are not unanimous in the use at the word "veteran." The Daily Herseysays: "The old veterans drop off bst the world moves on the bet tsr that they lived," while the finical Miss NaBcy, word projector of the Every Evening refers to a football player as "a young veteran." Veteran, Is derived from a Latin word meaning, "old " It is usually applied to a man who has had long military service, model of the best English writers,says: Ensigns that pierced the foe's remote*', lines The harly veteran with tears resigns. Bacon says : Fifty thousand veteran soldiers. Of course we do not pretend to lecture onr contemporaries on the use of words. One is too old to learn and the other too giddy to understand. But they should try to agree between themselves for the benefit of the community of intelligent people, whom they Instruct or amuse. Addison, the Cities have different characteristics different tastes. Cities, like men, boast of the things whish distinguish them— sometimes dlsereditthem. Rome boasted that she was the eternal olty, Paris boasts of her gaiety, Chicago brags of the World's Fair, Kalamazoo contends for the superiority of her crisp celery, but the greatest man in the greatest city of Pennsylvania says : This store is the heart of this commit Ity—the centre of life Activity is now regnant here. The pulse of trade is strong. That means happiness aud com fort through the oommnulty. That is not a vain boast. It is a solid, full weight chunk of cheap domestic truth—"all wool and yard wide." The claim that the heart throbs of the people are synchronous with the resonant ripple of pennies upon the bargain connter is probably more truthful than the claim that the Old South Church epitomizes the virtue, culture and intelligence of Bos ton. It is certain that the per vadiog persistence of the Wana maker idea is more aggressive and tenaciously active in the great city where his great store is the "regnant'' centre of mental and moral activity than the idea, whether It be that of celery, or of culture, which dominates the atinos phere and elevates and enlarges tbs com preheuslou of the natives of any other city in the world. JUGGLING. Referring to the failuie of justice in the case of Captain Mitchell two papers here presented lamentable examples of juggling. The Morning News juggled with its conscience aud with the Intelli gence of the community; the Daily Hersey juggled with anarchy. The latter said : It was an unlawful act says the law. When the men were refused their votes they should have retired says the court. That is good law. but it does not right a grievous wrong. Captain Mitchell and those tried with him, demauded their rights, aud in common with nearly every body else had very lltt'e respect for a law that outrageously trampled upon their rights. All that remains to be said is that when there are honest elec tion laws there will be honest voting aud respect for the law, and not before. No body need be surprised at the disagree meut of the jury There is no respect for the partisan election laws and much less for the manner in which they are administered. The teachings of the Dally Bersev are not of any consequence iu themselves for they are as silly as they are dangerous and anarchical. But the paper and its editor represent the average intelli gence aud morality of the Republican party here Captain Mitchell, and men of his class, who can incite the average Republican voters to mob violence at auy time, represented that class lu court Five times, wlthiu the last two years, the colored and white Republican voters bave beeu incited to mob violence iu this city. The Dally Heraey is the mouth piece of that element when it elevateB Captain Mitchell, assisted by negro roughs, to exercise Immediate and lire sponsible jurisdiction over the polls aud the officers on the day of election. The rank and file of the Republican voters don't know any better and care less. The News juggles with the conscience of its editor and with the intelligence of its readers when it condemns Judge Cnl len for not admitting testimony in trial of the inspectors for refusing to admit the vote of Brown, when Captain Mitchell was nnder Indictment for interfering with an election at the polls. The News commends the four Republi cau jurymen for ignoring the testimony which was introduced convicting Mitchull and for disregarding the instrne tions of the judge. Those four Republi can jurymen are superior to the law and the facts Of oourse it may seem a grave offence to a man, who has no legal knowledge and little general Intelligence, to try Mitchell wheu it would suit Republican partisans better to try the inspectors, bat the editor juggles feebly and shamefully when he pretends to believe that the In spectors should have been tried nnder the Indictment of Mitchell. Both of these papers are defending the partisanship of those four Republican jurymen, who disobeyed the law and the instructions of the judge to aeqnit a par tisan of interference with an election, in the styles which salt each one best. The defences are unique and peculiar. The News imputes ignorance and dis honesty to Judge Cullen and says he tried the wrong case under the wrong indictment ; its querulous and garrulous old contemporary says the law is bad and wrong and Captain Mitchell Is excusable iu raising a mob to prevent its execution; that such conduct is mendabl* ; that it is to be advocated and condoned so long as the law operates to prevent the Illegal votes of tax paid , ne^roee. cum NEWSPAPER OPINION. Mot a Popular ltavolatloa. Springfi-sld Republicans When tlies* leaders bad grasped power they did not hand it over to the people, but held it by force of arms. They sup pressed at least one revolution as the seif appointed provisional government, aud banished several adherents of the Monarchy. The people had nothing to do with determining the form of the new gr.veruinent—It might have been any thing the provisional government de sired—nor did they or any représenta tlves chosen by them draft the new constitution or order its promulgation. The most the people were allowed to do was to choose a Congress st the pleasure of this provisional gov eminent, which lu turn ratified the con at.ltutlon. Eighty-four per cent, of the people of Brazil are Illiterate, aud pre sumably would be as well satisfied under one form of government as another, pro vided neither was oppressive, so that it Is doubtful if the republie rests upon any firm basis of popular conviction. The clergy do not like the republic be cause It has separated church from state and lessened their importance The monarchists do not like it, and those who felt the heavy hand of the provisional government are said to be still nursing their grievance Furthermore, it is tradition rather than community of interest which baa held the provins«» together, for tliev are widely separated geographically a d by almost insurmount able natural obstacles. Given this apathy of the people, lack of community of in terests, ,'distrast of Fonseca, and the presence of ambitious and popular lead era like Martisez In the states, and this threatened disintegration of the Republie is not aurprUing Rio Grande do Snl is almost, ue far from Para as California from New York, and Rio, the capital, is 2,000 miles or more from Para. It will be no slight undertaking for Fonseca to soerce these states, and the success of his attempt, should he make one, it problematieal. If he fails to attempt It ills government is discredited and either a revolution or a disruption of the Re public will probably follow. If he tries and succeeds, he is firmly fixed as dis tator, so t hat every way it is looked at the situation of the Republic •ritical. seems Prohibition Too Krtrenie. Philadelphie Ledger. Hon. John A Kasson is credited with an interesting explanation of the feeling of the people of Iowa with respect to prohibition. He says that the majority of the people of Iowa favor prohibition, "If prohibition means the closing of the whiskey saloons." But the law has been carried to such an extreme as Jto prohibit the transportation of wines and liquors for private use. According to Mr. Kassou there are enough people in Iowa who want liquor for themselves, but object to ite sale to other people, to deprive the Prohibit ionists of their majority and give it to the party opposed to these prohibitory laws. There is probably more truth than poetry in this explanation Since the early days of prohibition In Main there have always been men -'In favor of the prohibition law, but against its enforcement."
