Oen. Harrison shook hands with 1,000 men the other day. That is about the nearest approach he will make to the presi dency. The jewelers of New York nre said to lie for Mr. Cleveland. Of course they are. Mr. Cleveland is a jeweler himself—that is, he has a very bright jewel of a wife. The investigation into the system of im migration to this country has already borne fruit. About 300 Italians sailed from New York for Gibraltar the other day. They can be spared. To all appearances Lieut. Gov. Jones, of New York, has concluded to lot Gov. Hill walk off with a renomination. Does Jones want to be lieutenant governor again? If he does, let him speak out. The New York lYess affirms that “there Is a disposition to send the southern bloody ehirt to the laundry.” Anything more commendable could hardly lie Imagined, but the Pi-css won’t take part In the act. Thirty-four set speeches are said to be ready to bo fired off in the senate on the tariff question. The tariff is a very inter esting subject, but what the people want is (not speech-making, but relief from burden some taxes. Quite a number of Georgia towns have received their first bales of new cotton. This source of excitement being over, they will resume work on the various railroads which they are building on paper. The people must have excitement. New York thieves give more thought to the booty they pick up than to the placo in which they find it. They entorod the First Presbyterian church the other night and stole two gallons of port wine intended for sacramental purposes. President Green, of the Western Union telegraph company, says that he. is a demo crat, and has been for thirty years, but he hasn't contributed SIO,OOO to the democratic campaign fund. Perhaps he will do so later on. He couldn’t give to a Uetter cause. Tho Chicago Tribune announces that In diana, Michigan and Wisconsin arc safe for Harrison and Morton. It is, therefore, un necessary for the Tribune to labor for the republican ticket in those states. Will it ■how that degree of confidence in its state ments? It is given out that Mnhone “will run no oolored man for congress in his district.” John M. Langston is a candidate for the re publican nomination, but this seems to shut him out. Will Mahone run himself? The district and the republican voters seem to belong to him. The blunt and honest senator from Ala bama, Mr. Morgan, stirred up the repub lican senators at a very lively rate Thurs day. When Senator Morgan gets on thb war path the members on the other side had better “lay low.” Senator Evarts did not know this, but he knows it now. Whilo Messrs. Scott, Brice and Barnum attend to the northern states during the campaign, Senator-elect Barbour, of Vir ginia, will look after lh* southern states. A quartette of ablor political managers could not be named. The democratic cam paign will be managed from the word go. It is stated in Washington that Mr. Car lisle will not again be a candidate for speaker, and that Congressman Crisp of Oeorgia will lead all other candidates in the .contest for that position. When a smart, honest and safe man is wanted, no nustako Will be made in coming to Georgia for him. Wichita, Kan., is reported to bo becom • ing a "desert waste,” so to speak. People •re said to be leaving there by doaens, and 1 landed proprietors are unable to dispose of I their property at any price. Thus another ' “boom city” succumbs to the inevitable. A |Jew speculators have made fortunes in Wield a, but the masses of working people who wont there to make a living find them selves stranded. Boom cities are bad placet to move to. It is the solid city like Sa vannak that offers the best inducements lor hound people in search of homes. The Organ and the Boss Differ. There apjears to be a lack of harmony between the chief republican organ, the New York Tribune , and the manager of the republican campaign committee, Mr. Quay, on the subject of Gen. Harrison’s speech making. Tho Tribune says that “Gen. Harrison continues to make a most favor able impression upon tho country by h s excellent addresses to visiting delegations.” Mr. Quay, who is a firm believer in silouoe, says that “No party can stand a presiden tial candidate who made seventy-three speeches before tho campaign opened, anil Harrison must be stopped at onc\” It is announced that Mr. Quay is so positive about squelching Gen. Harrison’s loquacity that he has asked Mr. Dudley and Mr. New, who are Gen. Harrison’s Indiana managers, to see Gen. Harrison and inform him that he must stop talking at once. But what is it that Gon. Harrison has been saying, which, according to the Tri bune, makes such an excellent impression upon tho country l Well, for one thing, | he has bran sayiug to tho numerous dele gations which have been calling upon him, I that the only way to got control of the trade of Central and South America is to subsidize steamship lines between this coun ' try and Central and South American ports. He has no doubt that if our government were to pursue a very liberal policy in this respect, it would not bo long before our exports to the Central and South American states would be greater than our imports from them. Quite a number of republican statesmen have been advocating this policy for a long time, and, hence, Gen. Harrison can bardlv claim the credit of originating it. But why has it not proven to be more popular? For tho reason, doubtless, that there is very little prospect that it would lie successful. There is no n-e in establishing transportation lines to tho countries south of us until our manufacturers are prepared to compete in the Central and South American markets with the manu facturers of Europe. The merchants of those countries will continue to buy what they want in the cheapest markets, and it is au undisputed fact that manufactured goods can tie purchased in Europe cheaper than in this country. But why can they be purchased cheaper there? Mainly for the reason that European manufacturers have cheap raw mitorials. The manu facturers of this country do not hesitate to say that with free raw materials they would be able to compete with European manu facturers in any market in the world. The manufacturers of woolens, for instance, have said this within the last few weeks, and a manager of one of the Augusta (Ga.) mills said something akin to it recently. From this, it appears that what this coun try wants, in order to increase its trade with Central and South America, is not subsidized steamship lines, but cheap raw materials. The tariff reformers propose to give our manufacturers cheap raw mate rials The Mills bill aims to do that, and if the republican senate will pass it, in just tlie shajie it passed the house, a groat doal will ho accomplished toward giving this country a much larger share of the Central and 8011th American trade than it now has. Gen. Harrison’s plan for increasing our trade with tho countries to the south of us will not bear discussion. If his ideas about other public questions are as crude as this one relating to the South American trade, Mr. Quay’s anxiety to “anchor him to silence” is not to lie wondered at. Nominate Good Men. Nominations of candidates for both brnnehes of the legislature are being made throughout the stale. A great many nomi nations have already been made, and, as a rule, they are very good ones. There are many yet to be mode, however, and care should be taken to select capable men—nieu who have no axes to grind, and-who> not only know what legislation is demanded by the best interests of the people, but who can be depended upon to favor legislation of that kind under all circumstances. Too often candidates are nominated, not because of their fitness, but liecauseof thoir skill and shrewdness in manipulating the mass meetings or conventions which make tho nominations. In this state there is vir tually but oue party, ami a nomination, therefore, is equivalent to an eleotion. That being the case, the people are not as careful as they should be in selecting candidates. They are disposed to give very little attention to political matters, and very many do not even take the trouble to vote. Asa consequence, it is not difficult for men who want to go to the legislature for a special purpose to get a nomination. The mass meetings boing small they can be packed with one’s friends without a great deal of trouble. In this way men get into the legislature who do not fairly represent tho people, and who are as likely to bo the promoters of alt sorts of selfish schemes as they are to guard the public interests. Several very important questions will come before the next legislature. They in volve issues in which the whole state is deeply interested. To settle them wisely, will require ability of a high order and fldolity to duty of the strictest kind. If these questions are not settled satisfactorily, the people themselves will be to blame. It is tboir duty to select their representatives, and if good men arc not chosen, it will be because they failed to discharge their duty. Burohard has Joined the democratic party, where he will be held in check, so as not to say anything that ho ought not to say, but another clergyman has risen up to to take his place in the republican party. His name is Vincent, and hesavs: “Being nn anti-Romanist, lam a republican.” Tho faculty of blundering seems to have de parted from among tho democrats and to have settled upon the republicans. Advices from West. Virginia state that it is problo that ex Senator Henry G. Davis will be nominated by the democrat* for governor of that state. Mr. Davis would lie a strong candidate, and would lend strength to the democratic national ticket. The nomination of Mr. Thurman for vico proeulont, however, settled it that West Virginia will go demoorat.io. A few days ago Mr. John C. New said ho thought Congressman Hovey would bo the republican candidate for governor of In diana. Gen. Hovey seems to think so too, fqr he immediately went to work to make political capital for himself out of the pen sion business. Whether ho helped the re publicans or the democrats is - a question which now perplexes him. A loiter lias bee’ received in Washington from Mr. Randall, in which he describes the delightful trip to “Castencn,” whore he says he is most pleasantly situated. He de clares that, he is gaining strength every day, and it is only as a precaution that ho remains in bed. The bright prospects of Mr. Randall’s recovery will be pleasing in teiliguucs to the publio. THE MORNING NEWS: SATURDAY. AUGUST 4. 1888. The Danger of Impure Water. Philadelphia has a small epidemic of typhoid fever, and the newspapers of that city say that it is caused by impure water. The chief supply of water is drawn from the Schuylkill river, and at times it is far from wholesome, but it is believed that tho water which cause- the fever is drawn from the Delaware river and from old wells. The fever prevails only in the localities which are supplied with water from these sources, and nn analysis cf that from both sources shows that it is poisonous. That taken from the Delaware river contains a very considerable percentage of sewage, and that from the wells is contaminated by drainago from sewers and cesspools. It seems remarkable that the authorities of a city as large and as thickly populated as Philadelphia should not have closed up the city wells long ago. The Philadelphia Press, with reference to these wells, says: “As for those wells whoso sparkling waters are highly charged with the concentrated poison drawn from the saturated soil of a densely peopled city, no excuse can lie made for their toleration at this day. Their nox ious character has been shown again and again. Tho retention and use of these wolls in Philadelphia is worthy of the darkest ages of sanitary ignorance. The council men who were instrumental in preventing their being all filled up several years ago deserve fairly to be indicted for man slaughter. They are the efficient cause of many desolated homes to-day. What is there so peculiar about the ordinary ooun cflmoni' - understanding that it is so slow to comprehend that water from wells sur rounded by ce‘S|ioo!s or from a river whose waters have just received the contents of many Bowers is a disease-breeding, death dealing imtion?” It is a source of satisfaction that this city has substituted artesian for river water, because there is no doubt that tho water that was obtained from the river was not wholly free from sewage. The analysis of it, which was made by Prof Chandler of New York, just before the city began using artesian water, showed t' aces of sewage. There is reason to believe that if we had been dependent upon the river water last fall, when the rice fields were flooded by the freshet, there would have been a great ileal of sickness in the city. Tho rotting rice would certaiuly have made the water very unwholesome. The protest iu Philadelphia against the pumps which still remain in that city should not be without its effect here. The council is taking steps to have the wells closed, and they ought to permit no longer delay than is absolutely necessary in accom plishing this work. The pump water may be clear and appear to be pure, but there is no question about its being ex tremely dangerous to health. Close up the wells as soon os possible and supply their places with hydrants. When that is done Savannah will be cortain of one thing, and that is, that all her people drink puro w ater. Mr. Everett P. Wheeler of New York has apparently got the republican organs iu a hole. Some of the organs iu question huvo printed the democratic ticket and placed immediately beneatji it the following: “The only time Englaud can use au Irishman is when he emigrates to America and votes for free trade.”— London Times. “Grover Cleveland has done more to advance the cause of free trade than any prime minister England has ever had.” —London Spec tator. Mr. Wheeler now comes forward and defies any one of the organs to produce copies of tho English papers containing the alleged extracts. Of course, if tho extracts are genuiuo, tho p ipers will lie produced. To what depths some of the republican organs doscend! Will the Hon. Primus Jones, the first bale man from Baker county, again offer himself as an independent candidate for the Georgia legislature ? It seems to lie tho custom in Georgia this year to make candl dates state their positions on important questions. Stand up, Mr. Jono3. Are you a tariff reformer or a protectiouist, and will you vote for Senator Colquitt for re-election? How do you stand on the quostion of bet terments? Do you favor the sale of the state road-? How are you on prohibition and the railroad commission? One of the republican congressmen from Pennsylvania, who is quite wealthy, has un consciously done a good deed. He orderod large numliers of Mr. McKinley’s speech for protection distributed in hisdistriet, but the congressman’s hieroglyphics are not of the plainost. and tlie clerk, reading “MeMil lin” for “McKinley,” flooded the dis trict with the Tennessee member’s excel lent speech for turiff reform. The Pennsylvanian should thank the lucky cir cumstance which caused him to do a realiy iuuritorious thing. Editor Patrick Ford is another American citizen whose heart has been sad since the Chicago convention, and who will be made to rejoice when it is shown in New York noxt week that Blaino is a bigger man than Harrison. On that important occasion Editor Ford and ex-Postmastcr Manley will grasp hands and express their feelings in silont eloquence. Mr. Blaine and Gen. Mahone are about the only politicians in this country who leave off thoir initials in their signatures. Mr. Blaine often signs himself “Blame,” and Gon. Mahone makes it a rule to sign himself “Mahone.” This is quite English. Irish voters will be good enough to remember that Blaine and Mahone are republicans. Gov. Hill, of New York, having appointed Gen. Roger A. Pryor special counsol for the state to assist the attorney general in proceeding in the courts against tho trusts, Gen. Pryor says the formation of trusts is cloarly contrary to law. All the same, trusts have been formed in nearly every de partment of trade, and the people are the sufferers. O'Donovan Kossa has emerged from ob sourity loug enough to be interviewed oa matters pertaining to the English govern ment. Ro.isa, whoso real name is Larry O’Donovan, or something of that sort, is not as foud of parading himself before the pub lic ns he was before somebody let daylight into his body several years ago. The New York Wot id hulls this question at the republican lunatics who howl free trade: “If a47 per cent, tariff is protec tion, how can a4O per cent, tariff lie free trade?” The republican lunatics will treat the question with contempt. They are not inquiring into the tonability of their state monte. Mrs. Langtry was robbed of sl3 in New York tho other day. When it is considered that Mrs. Langtry is not worth more than a million, the cause of her dejection will be understood. CURRENT COMMENT. Not Up to Snuff. From the Baltimore American (Rep.) If Oen.

From the New York Post ilnd.) “What shall the negro do?” is the title of the latest of Mr. George \V. Cable's screeds on the negro question. I’ray to be delivered from such friends as Mr. George W. Cable, seems the most natural answer. Then* are no more severe critics of this clover romancer's ill-ad vised essays in the field of politics than the men who are devoting their lives to the elevation of the negro. “Mr. Cable's only idea seems to be to cultivate the negro's sense of grievance,” recently said a man who has given twenty year© to the work of negro education In a southern statu, “and I cannot see that he says a single helpful thing.''

Just before leaving for Marion the President's wife purchased a soft felt hat. drab in color and Alpine in shajio. It was most becoming to her, and those competent to judge said that it was the handsomest heud frenr she had worn ut the capital. The result ms l>oeu that young women of fashion, whether they bo blondes or brunettes, have adopted the new bat, and iu this instance, above all others, Mrs. Cleveland’s example has been felt. A most astonishing incident of the summer hotel season is tho disappearance of F T. Learned, proprietor of th© lb*sort house, Point Pleasant, N. J. He left behind him debts to the amount of contracted in his endeavor to give his guests a good time. He provided a more luxurious table than was warrantable and furnished better music than his patrons had a right to demand. Surely his errors may be partially forgiven, as he fell because he loved uis fellow men. But the tradespeople who have suffered by his generosity cannot look upon him as a philanthropist.

Secbktahy Whitsey is the first cabinet officer to Join the tliumel shirt brigade, having ap peared in the navy department at Washington with a shirt of the finest finuuel. with a loosely knotted tie at his throat. It Is a good thing to look like a sailor anyhow. Many years ago, when a Secretary of the Navy had beer up pointed, he is said to have gone on a man-of war for the first time, and looking down the hatchway, exclaimed: “Way, the old thing is hollow, isn’t in" This may seem very much exaggerated, but it was quoted at the time to show that officials <Ud not always kuow all about tho position they were appointed to.

He was turning up his nose over America, which appar ently he was visiting for the purpose of justify ing his scorn. 'Mr. Bull," a young lady asked him, "what do you thik of America literature?” “I wasn't a ware that there was any,” he re plied. "No?” she said sweetly. “Do you know the thing I like best, about you English is that you will, without a quiver, confess an ignorance so gross that-an American would die of shame to to suspected of it. It is so noble and ftank of you to tell the truth under a temptation so tre tnendous." And the Englishman merely murmured "ah!" and then was mute. A Wise Plan. From the Detroit Free Press. • A peanut vendor near the markot was asked the other day b.v a policeman if the bov in his employ, and who was left at the stand alone at meal time, was strictly honest. ”oh, no. no, no! ’ he replied. "He is one cheat.” ‘ Did he over steal from you?” "So, hut, he like to,” “Why do you keep him?” "Because he works so cheap.” "How do you protect yourself?" "Well, you see. I go away and leave him alone When I come back 1 look all around and call out, “Boy, you was a tiof 1 I take twenty cents oiT your wages or have you arrested!" "And what does lie say?" "What can he say? He was an orphan and have no home or money, and he must give iu or I bounce him.” "It must take all his wages?” “Oh, yes, and more. That keeps him honest It was an original plan with me, aud it works like grease.” A Pretty Romance. From a New York Letter. Romance is not altogether confined to novels, even in this prosaic age. Clark Reitmeyer of Lewisburg, Pa., was in love with a Chicago girl, and they "corresponded.” But the love making stopped many months ago. because the young man did not i-eceive an answer to his “last letter.” He was too high-strnng to ask for an explanation. Last week he received the answer to his last letter, and a note of explana tion accompanied it. A commercial traveler, while riding on a Maine railroad, purchased a magazine published in Chicago, ami between tlie pages | le discovered the letter addressed to Reitmeyer. It was sewed fast. It had a stamp upon it, but no postmark. The drummer was mystified, and on reflection sent on the letter as directed. It seems that the young woinau worked in a bindery, and that, she had placed the letter between the page* for safekeeping. Forgetting that she had not mailed it, she con cluded that her lover hail left her. The corre spoudence has been resumed, and let us hope that, in the language of other and older falrv tales, 1 "they will live happily to a good old age." We Must All Dissemble. From the London Queen. Ah, how much we hide! The most frank and candid of us all must needs keep a whole world concealed in his heart of hearts. Can wo tell that hesitating prosy bore what a nuisance he is? Can we trounce that vein, affected old woman for her folly in painting her face aud dyeing her hair and exposing her shriveled old flesh, which has forgotten to be young these thirty years and more? We hide our contempt for that piece of meanness; our doubt of that statement; our belief in the disunion of those not long-wedded folk; our fear of a coming financial crash where the rumor would fulfill itself, and to set the report about would be to insure its fruition in fact. We hide our sorrow for that pretty little woman’s perpetual nag ging at her foolish husband that loving mother's over-anxiety for her children's wel fare, and her consequent coddling physically and over training morally—botli or which must lead to disasters. We are sorry, hut hat can we do? Has it be“n laid on us to go through the world as Quixotes redressing all evils? We have UA hide, not detail—to be silent, not loquacious. Our only confidant is ourself, and this is one who never betrays. So things go; and we all carry about with us the talisman which prevents the destruction of peace aud happiness, by enabling us to hido our thoughts; and they who should discard this talisman of silence and concealment would be as fiery bombshells flung into a powder magazine, whereby the whole fabric or society would be blown to atoms.

Surrounded by a tattered group of newsboys in Battery park yesterday was a boy about !3 years of age, with a wizened face and expression of canning fur beyond bis years. His history aud personality ore really remarkable. It is probable that there is not a newsboy in any large Ameiican city who does not know "Whist ling Jack." He has traveled from Ran Fran cisco to New York, “boating" his way on rail road trains, walking, riding in farmers' wagons, seeking any moans of transportation at all, so long as he could be on the go. He is best known, perhaps, In St. Louis, Chicago, Phila delphia and Bostou. This is his secoud visit to New York. “Whistling Jack" is so called becai iso between each word he utters he emits a sh rt whistle. Unless he did this, he could not speak at all. From early babyhood he stuttered so distress ingly that he could scarcely make himself understood One day,when ho was about 0 years old, selling newspapers in Chicago, a mau who had an impediment in liis own speech told him to try a whistle between his words. Jack did so anil found he coaid articulate so as to bo under stood, and he kept up the strange method of iissistanee. It is very amusing to hear him talk. Long practice lias made him |>erfect, ami h ■ can rattle along almost as rapidly as a terson wliosespeech is natural. An effort to talk with out whistling results In horrible grimaces and vis ible spasms of tbo larynx. Jack contemplates a trip te Europe before the loaves begin to fall. If he goes he will go as a stowaway. Never Got That Low. Now that tbo hand-organ and the monkey havo reappeared again upon our streets, the sight recalls to the historian of the Boston Rec ord a story heard some time ago, the telling of which has been attributed to the Hon. J. O. Blaine. In a certain New England factory-town some years ago, where the Irish element largely pre dominated over a sprinkling of other divers for eign nationalities, an Italian priest had been f laced over a large Irish congregation. The null did not like it. In tne tlrst place, he did not possess the virile energy they admire even in a preacher; and, in the second place, his broken English distressed the ear of a people fond, lieyond most others, ol flowing sentences and rhetorical graces. Still they Imre their chagrin fairly well, until they began to dis cover that their ways were not a whit more grateful to the priest than bis were to them But the breach was not opened until one Sun dsy the priest indulged in a sarmon in which he dealt seferety with c-rtaie uf their mere glar ing faults- their noisiness, quarrelsomeness, drinking and general roughness After he bad mado out a case against them as strong as hit broken Eutlisb would allow, he paused to ww the effect. Sullen silence only was visible and continued till the services wi re ended. When this was over, however, and he had returned from the vestry, having changed his sacerdotal robes, he found two old meu had advanced toward the chancel rail and stood ready as spokesmen for the congregation. Oue of them respectfully addressed him in this wise: "There's a grate dale of truth in what you say, yer reverence; I’m not the man to gainsay that. Rome of us are quarrelsome anil noisv, and lighting, and dhriuk. There's a dale of truth in it all, as this congregation knows. But, yer reverence, there's one thing ye never saw an irishman do—an' ye nover will see an Irish man do! Ye'll nevor see an Irishman try in'to earn his livin’ by hidin' round a monkey will a bit o’ sthring! No, no man will ever see that I" Having delivered this broadside, whose deadly effect he felt must rankle th the blood of the Italian, be decorously made his bow aud joined the departing congregation.

Then followed a duej, in which the man of peace wounded this sorry Bobadil. “Serve him right" is the universal verdict, and let us hope that Boulanger and Boulangerism is liiially squelched. Those who know the general personally tell me that in private he is the most amiable of men. Possi bly he is, bill in public he seems to have fallen into bad hands. They are making him- -with his speeches, that he learns by heart, with his brougham, which has replaced his black horse, and with hjs absurd swagger—utterly ridiculous.
