A floater, and a man in the swim, do nit belong to the same class. If in seven months Governor Altgeld can pardon ninety five convicts he can empty both prisons before Lis term ex pires. The Vigilant may sail faster than the Valkyrie, helped by the winds of heaven, hut steam drives the Lucauia to beat the record. The man whom the office seeks at the But the other present time Is scarce, fellow is numerous enough to make a firemen's parade. The Vigilant, though she sprung her bowsprit and was forced to take In her baby jib sail, was still able to beat the British cutter. Yesterday was not the only day Chi cago has had. As a matter of fact, far as profit Is concerned, they have ail been Chicago days. The indications are that the Valkyrie la out classed in every respect by the Vigilant. - But she is a beautiful medul and a fast cutter for all that. Saha Bernhardt may have enjoyed, the spectacle of the bombardment at Rio Janeiro, hot "a full house" Is the thiug that catches Sara's must loving ad miration. so True harmony at Saratoga was not that sort of harmony which makes the rule of a party permanent or wholesome. ■ «toes not result from conviction but from cowardice It Can it be possible that the silver men think they have argued the question of a hi metallic currency while Senator Stewart has been bulldozing the Senate with demands for a market for sliver bullion ? Tub bitterest invective ever uttered In E ngland against the House of Lords was uttered by Joseph Chamberlain, who is in this country now pretending that the Lords will win In acon est with Glad alone. A man who lives well, does his whole duty here, Is not bothered to prepare for the future. Hts future Is practically prepared In doing the best he can here he makes the best preparation possible for the hereafter. Tub only compromise the Repealers could propose is an offer to buy either more or less silver bullion for a shorter or longer period. Cleveland will not ap prove auy 1)111 to buy more silver. It would be better to allow the country to swelter under the law we have. SsNATORbiil hav demonstrated hia power and influence in the State of New York, but be has made a political mis take before the National Democracy which will count against him forever Ho need not have put Maynard forward; there are other men in New York. Emma Goldman, the Anarchist, who, after a residence of eight years in this country, having graduated In Russia, wished to reconstruct our social and economic institutions, is at last a martyr. She has been convicted but not sentenced If we have many more of her Kind ee shall understand why the Cur main taiua the custom of Siberian exile. If seme of Hon. Joseph Chamberlain's speeches agalnat the Lords are quoted he will have considerable difficulty In reconciling tbtm with those Interviews ho is making on this side. Perhaps the Hon. Joseph, of the bitter tongue, i agi nee that we do not remember his vl tuperatlve efforts before he turned against the grand old man, for reasons best known to himself. Bbcacsb Senator Cameron wishes to pool issues with Colorado aud Nevada "to save protoctlou" and to assist the strug gllng Industrie« of this country, struggling industries In Pennsylvania have been assisted, the protectionists of Scranton asK^iim to resign his seat in the Senate If they did not object to tbe bonus to maple sogar, how can they object to the protection of lh^ silver in dustry ? Tub emissaries of the party of high m >ral iders in Philadelphia have been assessing policemen at the rate of «15 and «25 for tbe benefit of tbe Repu bit can candidates in t he February campaign The state of polities In the city which easts the largest Republican majority in tbe Union is doubtless a source of gieat solicitude and prayer to tbe saints. It stems a pity that for downright and bold corruption, stealing, robbery aud general chicanery even Tammany Rail or the Chicago alderman have uolY>een able to »quäl Phliadelph a. Tbe nomination of J. J. Van Alen to b* ambassador to Italy ram* be'ore Hie fhnate in executive session informally m as yesterday, but no action was taken. A number of Senatois Interested in this nomination were absent and It was laid aside. It is not too late If the Senators find that the odor of that subscription still clings to Van Alen, it'is their duty to reject the nomination. Mr. Cleveland may have been imposed upon. It is better that Van Alen should be disappointed than that this administration should be subjected to the same scandal that we have condemned in the Harrison adminls tration. Tiik study of words is necessary not for correct speaking and witting only,but it assists also in promoting the under standing of all other sciences. Thus, explaining the word holy, Carlyle ssys: "Holy lu the German language — heilig— also means healthy. Our Eng lish wotd whole—all of one piece, without any hole in it—is the same word. You could not get any better definition of what holy really Is than healthy—completely healthy, A sound mind tu a sound body," With that clear compréhension of the meaning of the word there is no difficulty in affixing the significance of the religious term holi ness. It is perfect moral health. Secretary Smith sent to the Honse yesterday a letter aubmltting a supple mental estimate of «31)0,000 for the In vestigation of pension cases for the cur rent fiscal year. This Is in addition to «300, 000 already appropriated. The loud and prolonged wall that was anticipated from these pension Investigations, sus pensions and stoppages has not come. In Kansas a few days ago a pension agent who was nominated for office by a Re publican convention was forced to aban don the race. His reputation for obtain ing fraudulent pensions was so offensive that bis name on the ticket rendered do feat probable, If not certain. Of course there will be Investigations, suspensions and with 'rawals of pensions In his dis trict. But will the honest soldiers dare to go into a canvass to restore them to prevent an Investigation? or At a meeting of the business men In Knoxville, Tennessee, yesterday, resolu tions were adopted expressing the belief that the alarming condition of the country arises from the operation of the Sherman Silver act. The resolutions also say that the Senators from Tennessee, in taking the position they do on this question, do not represent the senti ments and wishes of a large majority of the people, and are unfaithful to their trust. This iu addltiou to the large meeting at Memphis,both In a etate which Senators Harris and Bate supposed a sllverite stronghold, make was | may well those Senators stop to think whether they are exhibiting good poli tics iu advocating silver. The lesson that the Democratic convention gave young Mr. Bryan last week with these incidents in Tennessee ought to hav some influence on those men who think they are seeking popular favor, or Popu list favor, In opposing the Repeal bill. Mr. Bryan was not even allowed the small privilege of sitting with the Com mittee on Resolutions in a state conven tion, where, if his course had been differ ent in Congress, he might have sat any where he pleased. Ho was defeated for that place by a vote of 375 to 133. ■ Frank Ellison, convicted In New York last week of assault In tho second degree, second offence, in having brutally beaten Broker William Uenriques, was yesterday sentenced by Recorder Smyth to five years iu Sing Sing, at hard labor. This Is the extreme penalty. Later In the day. Judge Ingraham, of the Supreme Court, granted a stay of cutlou of sentence. Argument will be heard Thursday, In Chambers, order to show causa- why the stay should not continue pending appeal for a new trial. It may assist in preserving the liberties of some citizens who have been unjustly detained or unjustly sen touted in one court to be able to obtain a stay in a concurrent court. But In cases like tbis of Frank Ellison the priv ilege is calculated to bting both courts into contempt. He was guilty of au at tempt upon the life of an old matt who was small and weakly. He rau npon the prostrate and helpless old man after be had been pulled away aud kicked him He attempted to justify himself by prov tng that the old man's old fashioned, one barrel pistol had endangered his, Ellison's, life; and furthermore that the old man's daughter's character was bad and he had enjoyed an intimacy with her which should ruin her fair Such tricks of pattlfogging with the law in defense of contemptible and worthl as men like Ellison assist in spreading the spirit of lynching. t»xe on an I nimm. Tint-peripatetic lecturer, Slattety, who claims to be an ex priest, has been at It iu Louisville, and the Courier Journal, of that place, says; On the whole, the performance ap peared lo interest the large audience of -eriously minded people, aud oerlaluly won frequent aud earnest applause It was not ;ipicy enough fora show of its class, and loo worldly for a sermon, while, as fre>ks, "ex-priesla" are too common nowadays to draw the general public. If it had not been for tbe large audi ence, attracted, no doubt, as tbe Courier Journal intimates, in tbe expectation of hearing something "spicy," tbe lecture would not have bad even that temptuons notice, ex-prlest going about for no other pur pose than to excite or promote a hate that is discreditable, suggests to every fair minded man that he is doing thing unworthy aud despicable. The Evening Post says: The audience was large and Mr. Slat tery said some rather about the priesta this sort of thing is that nobody be iieves It. There is a general impres aion, laying aside tbe religious ques tion, that the Catholic priesthood prises a very capable and very worthy bjdy of men The time for bugbears la nant 15 ho is Slattery anvltow aud why should any charges that he might make con The fact of ibis some* severe things The trouble with cum be accepted without substantiation? That is a quoitlpii that naturally arisen. He claims to hare been an Irish priest who left the church because he did not approve sumo of its regulations. However much Mr. Slattery may dis approve of the practices of the Catholic Church, It is neither good taste I good morals for him to go about the country abusing it at so much "a head. He cannot expect to abolish the church; he does not pro pose to reform it. He professes to esteem It too bad to be reformed. Mean time he gets such contemptuous notices as the above from papers throughout the country. nor It is painful to know that there is a large class of our citizens, who, how ever worthy, sensible, Independent, loyal and brave ill other respects, are in mortal terror lest England shall steal our trade, break down our in dustries and flood this country with chiap goods. History, philosophy, wisdom, common sense and many object lessons teach them that these various calamities cannot happen; but they are deaf, blind and insentient to all of these. Fear and ignorance take com plete possession of them and they be come oblivious and unreceptlve. They are a prey to abnormally developed ap prehensions and they demand protection. To these nervous and hysterical, though frequently Intelligent people, we recommend the comments of the Loudon Daily News on the second race for the cup which wc have held for forty years. Britisher, Valkyrie. "It seems," says the candid "to be »II over with the She has been beaten again under conditions that furnished as good a test of speed and seamanship as could have been desired. It is impossible any lunger to believe that she is as well built and as well handled as is Vigilant. Our yachtsmen and yacht builders must again go to school in America. Some secret of the American mind In this branch of sport wo have yet to master. The fact that Valkyrie had to make more tacks than Vigilant seems to point to the handling rather thpu the building as the reason for the superiority of the American boat." What we can do with raohts and. in yacht races we can do with looms, with the plow, with the steam engine, with electricity, with the pick, the ax, the trowel, the needle; with any other instrument and implement which goes into the industries and requires skill, brains anjl energy. We do not ask Providence to favor us with tho wind aud the wave. We have beaten the Valkyrie with skill and brains. The English yachtsmen must come here to school. Just as every other art or craft must come If we are put upon our mettle. The Vigilant shows that protection is a fraud. . THE BLUSHING WEST. In a rambling jumble of braggadocio assertions, Hamlin Garland has jumped, as it were, into the ring decorated with feathers aud resplendent with war paint to contend for the "L terary Emancipa lion of the West," He prints an article in the Forum which is like a challenge and a defiance held together by the thinnest shreds of argument, to prove that the West la a literary bud which has not biootnel or is a sort of chrysalis which has not winged. He says: The rise of Chicago as a literary and art centre is a question only of time, aud a very short time, for the Columbian Exposition lias taught her her own capa bilities in something higher than busi ness * • * Magaz ues and publish ing houses are to come The writers have already risen—"Where ere they?" I he critic asks. In the shadow, where Hawthorne, and Whittier, and Emerson were born. Every literary man has a beginning somewhere, and there are scores of young writers and artists just rising to power in the West They need only a channel for utterance; it will come, and they will speak. That is much like a cross between the serifd of a w< mau suffragist aud a carpet bagger wail for negro equality, 'ihue is a gteat deal more of the same kind. nonsense of all kinda iu fact and a gen eral conglomeration of fancy and fiction which leaves the reader in a state of puzzled doubt as to whether Mr. Oar land is serious or sarcastic, sad or sar donic. He says: The blight upon tho literature of tlie West, like that of all provinces, has been Us timidity, its tendency to work In accepted modes, its childish desire to write for the applause of Its masters iu the East. This has been iu fact the weak nous of the entire output American literature. The West only emphasizes the fact Of course that is sad. We knew there was something that depressed the West bnt wo did not apprehend it was timid i'y We are rejoiced to learn that, fot timidity can be overcome. Other things of which we suspecte 1 a lack could not be supplied. To the base suspicion that there were other qualities lacking Mr. Gar land says: There is a great deal of stuff aud of The Went rt>: 1*8116.

Judge Page also referred to the Inse cure offices in which the public records of the county were kept, and said it made every citizen of the county hang his head in shame when he visited these offices and saw the danger to which the records were subjected by reason of the insecurity of the buildings Judges Holland and Lloyd arrived on the afternoon train Kx Governor Jackson, Senator John Walter Smith, E Stanley Toadvin and W.

Our sales are about the same as a year ago when everything was booming.
