Republicans who have been interviewed
disagree as to what Gen. Harrison’s south
ern policy will be, and as to whom he will
putin his cabinet, but they are pretty unani
mous in the opinion that, as many republi

It is intimated in the New York Tribune
that the republican Senate will refuse to
confirm Mr. Perry Belmont’s nomination
as minister to Spain, because on one occas
ion Mr. Belmont was not at polite to Mr
Blaine as he might have been. That cer
tainly would be a novel reason.
Hon. W. IV. Gordon, being chairman of
about the most important committee of the
legislature, it is b> be regretted that sick

soon be able to resume his duties.

Col. John C, New has his ideas concern

Harrison will be a civil sorvice reformer.
Hays he: “Changes will not be made with

there will be cause for a great many

Stanley may ease their minds regarding

member of the Virginia House of Delegates,

In tho next House there will probably le
four ex-speakers on the floor. First in
order, by reason of age, will be Gen.
Banks, of Massachusetts, who was republican
speaker of the Thirty-fourth congress; then
Mr. Carlisle, the present speaker: Mr. Ran
dall, who was chosen at the second session
of the Forty-fourth congress and served
until the beginning of the Forty-seventh,
and Mr. B. B. Cox, who was made speaker

in Bpeaker Kerr’s death. Other living ex
speakers are James O. Blaine, Gahisha A.

Harrison and the South.
The New York World has taken the
trouble to inquire of southern editors how
the south w ill receive Gen. Harrison’s ad
ministration. The answers are quite inter
esting. Some of them show that they ex
press tho ten aments of their writers rather
than of the people of the localities from
wnich they were sent. But the most of
them, doubtless, are in harmony with the
prevailing local views.
The impression gained from reading the
letters is that the south does not apprehend
any seri' us set-back on account of the elec
tion if Gen. Harrison, and tbet the south
ern people, while they* were disappointed
at-Mr. Cleveland’s drfeat, are disposed to
approve whatever is deserving of approval
in Gen. Harr.son’s administration. Tncy
want com; lete harmony and the utmost
cordiality between the north and south,
and they are ready to do their part toward
maintaining the best of feeling between the
There is only one thing about which they
have anv apprehension, and that is that
the r publicans may attempt to inaugurate
legislation that will result in r. ce dis
turbances in the south, 'ilie south cannot
be prosperous unless her state, municipal
and county governments re rain in the
control of the intelligent class. If ignorance
is forced to the front, misrule, corruption
aid ruin will folio a-.
While it might not be possible for the'
republicans to change very greatly the
pres nt condition of affairs in the fouth, an
attempt to do so would likely make tho
colore 1 people aggressive and res:less. The
result would be race troubles of one kind
and another, whicii would tend to keep
capital and immigrants out of the south.
If G> n. Harrison will accord to the south
us fir and impartial treatment as ho does
to other sections, his administration wi'l bo
as well received by her as it will be in Now
Jersey or Connecticut, the two northern
states which gave a majority against him.
If he wants to make friends for his party
in the s nth he will have no southern
policy He will have only one policy, and
that will be for the whole country.
A State Road Suggestion.
In a communication published in the
Qiiiman Herald the position is taken
by the writer of it that the Western
and Atlantic railroad should neither
be sold nor leased, but should be op
erated by the state. He gives some very
good reasons for his opinions. One of them
is that if the road is sold or leased it will
pass under tho control of one or the other
of the great railroad systems of the south—
the Richmond Terminal and the Louisville
and Nashville. In that event the outlets of
the state to the west will be controlled by
these two systems, and railroad building in
the state will receive a check, because of
the want of a western connection. Of
course the west can be reached over the
lines of either one of tho systems, but these
systems will discriminate in favor of tlieir
oven lines, and, hence, lines in opposition to
them will labor under great disadvantages.
If the Western and Atlantic is operated
by tho state all the roads in the state, and
all that may be built, will stand on an equal
footing so far as a western connection is
concerned. This condition of affairs will
encourage railroad building in the state.
The writer in tho Quitman Herald esti
mates that if the state operates the Western
and Atlantic $20,000,000 will be spent in
building railroals in the state within the
next twenty years, and that the tax from
those new roads will amount to $200,000 an
nually. The new roads also will cause an
ncrease in the state’s taxaLile property of
many millions of dollars.
If the estimates of the Quitman Herald
writer could be depended ui>on there would
seern to be no doubt that it would be advis
able for the state to operate the Western
and Atlantic after tho expiration of the
But although the estimates are mere
gu'tsscs, muy they not lie s nnewhore near
tho truth? Although it cannot be said
whether the estimates are correct or not,
the suggestion that tho Western and At
lantic bo operated by the state is worth
some consideration from the legislature.
While the state might not get as much out
of It as it now does, still it might be bene
fited iu other ways to a far greater extent
than it is benefited by tho money received
under tho present contract.
Of course it would bo tho wiser plan for
the ; fate to sell the road, and pay its debts.
A state ought to own only the property that
is necessary for conducting the state gov
ernment, but if the road is to be leased
again, it would be advisable for the legisla
ture, tiofore leasing it, to inquire whether it
would not be to the slate’s advantage to
operate the road.
Senator Colquitt Re elected.
The two branches of the legislature yes
terday voted for senator and re-elected
Senator Colquitt. A joint session will be
held to-day, and yesterday’s action will bo
There was no opposition to Senator Col
quitt. A day or two ago an effort was
made to bring out a candidate against
him, but it was a complete failure.
The talk of opposition probably interested
a few people in the hotels and
in the lobbies of the caoitol,
but that was about all that it amounted to.
Senator Colquitt does not appear to have
paid any serious attention to it. He was
probably amused by it. He knew how
little substance there was to it, and, hence,
did not concern himself about it.
Senator Colquitt has made a good senator,
and has the confidence of the people. He
stands squarely with his party, and in the
future, as in the past, ho will bo found in
the front rank battling for its principles.
Another letter from Gen. Harrison, con
cerning the southern policy which ho pro
po-es to evolve by-and-by, has been printed.
It was written to Col. J. W. Jelfries, of
Memphis, under date of Nov. 14, and this
extract from it will be of intorest: “l notice
wdiat you say about the situation in your
section, and assure you that 1 appreciate its
gravity and have tl e most sincere desire to
be well informed both as to men and affairs
in the south. Ido most sineorely desire to
promote the general good of our whole
people, without reference to state lines,
and I shall bo glad to have tho fi loudly
ndvice and co-operation of tho law-abiding
and conservative people in all the states.”
This sounds very nice. The quostiou, how
evor, is, will Gen. Harrison be able to carry
out his very proper desires, or will ho yield
to tho importunities of men who hold party

The Blackburn-Rucker Incident.
The probabil ty of a duel between Judge
Rucker, of Colorado, and Senator Black
burn, of Kentucky, Is suggested in a Wash
i ington dispatch. B ito are hot-blooded
j men, and both are native Kentuckians.
| They were great friends until within a week
or two, but now if they should meet their
hauds would hardly m et in a friendly
The cause of their changed feelings to
ward each other is a statement made by
j Judg- Rucker in a newspaper interview.
| The judge was in Washington a few days
before the election, and, desiring to see the
President, requested his friend, Senator
| Blackburn, to take him to the white house
j and in roduca him. The senat ir romplied
j with the request. Judge Rucker had a few
j minutes’ conversation with the President.
Senator Blackburn was present and so was
Secretary of War End.oott.
After the election Judge Rucker
stated to a reporter that wben
he called at the white house with
Senator Blackburn the President expressed
a doubt about democratic success in New
York on account of the attitude of Gov.
Hill, Mayor Hewitt and Mr. Grant, Tam
many’s candidate for mayor. Judge Rucker
abo stated that the President told him that
Hewitt was hostile to him, and would like
to see him defeated.
Senator Blackburn denied the correctness
of Judge Rucker’s statements, and Secre
tary Eudicott also tt-ate 1 tiiat he did not
hear the Pr -sideut say anything of the kind.
Judge Rucker, however, reiterated his state
ment . and insi tod that they were correct.
Senat jr Blackburn replied to Judge Rucker
through the newspapers, an 1 among other
things said that be was in doubt whether ho
was not dealing with a paid spv of th> re
publicans, and declared that ho could do no
more than “to crave the pardon of the
President for having bee 1 tni-lel into intro
ducing to him a caricature upon humanity,
for whose existence the Lord in fair dealing
owes an apology to mankind.”
The imt rcssion among Judge Rucker’s
friends is that ho w ill c ill Senator Black
barn to account for this arsiut upo i his
chaiaoter, an 1 that the senator will have
to take ba -k his uncomplimentary remarks
or give Itucker surh satisfaction as he may
Senator Blackburn, however, does not
seem to be in the least disturbed by Judge
R i-ker’s warlike attitude, ad it is not
improbable that he does not apprehend any
further annoyance from the white
house incident. He must have been
pretty well satisfie 1 that Judg 3
Rucker was mistaken about what the
President said, and it is c-rtain that he
docs not think that Judge Rucker had any
right to publish a private conversation with
the President, even though the President
made the remarks attributed to him. The
President talks vory freely to those whom
he knows, and also to those who are
properly introduced to him. It is not
probable that Judge Rucker will soon
again give a private conversation to the
Getting: a Working Majority.
There is not much doubt that the repub
licans will have a majority In the next
House. It will be a very small one, how
ever. But the republicans know how to get
a good working majority.
There will doubtless be a good many re
publican contestants. That part of the
republican programme will be carefully
looked after. # With a sufficient number of
contestants thero will be no great difficulty
in increasing the majority. The republi
cans have never permitted justice and fact3
to stand in their way in deciding contested
election cases when they needed the services
of republican contestants or contestees.
There are indications already that tho
election of several southern democrats will
te contested. It has been announced that
those of Messrs. Dibble and Elliott, of South
Carolina, will be. In almost evert'
southern district where the vote was close,
there may be a contest on charges trumped
up for the occasion, and tho republican
contestants will stand a good chance of
There is a lesson in this for southern dem
ocrats. It is, that they should poll their full
vote regardless of the probable result at the
polls. They wore warned to vote in the re
cent election, but a great many of them
failed to do so, and, in consequence, the
democratic majorities in a number of dis
tricts were small, ami it may be that demo
crats who were fairly elected will be
unseated in order that the republicans may
get a majority sufficiently largo for their
Notwithstanding Florida is ..lied the
"Land of Flowers,” there aie very few
flowers in the slate. In fact, nearly everv
other state’bns more. The New Orleans
Times-Ilemocrat says: “Florida is called
the 1 .and of Flowers, not because the Spanish
discoverers found any flowers there, but be
cause the discovery of the state was made
on tiie Pusqtia Florida, the Catholic holiday
of the flower festival. This name, however,
which has ever since stuck to the slate, has
induced many persons to believe that
Florida is one immense garden; hence,
when northern tourists pour into it and find
that instead of possessing many flower
gardens, it is more deficient in them than
any other part of the country, they are both
astonished and disappointed.” The Jack
sonville Times-Union says the want of
flowers is due to the soil and to the absence
of sufficient moisture at the proper s ason
of the year. It suggests a system of irriga
tion that might overcome the difficulty,
und urges the people to improve their flower
In the weekly financial circulars issued by
Henry Clews &. Cos., of New York, Mr.
Clews manages to mix in a good deal of
politics. His latest political composition is
on the subject of a change in the presiden
tial term. He fays; "I favor a constitu
tional amendment making tho presidential
term six years. Experience in tho past
shows that it takes two years to prepare for
an election, and. if tho adniinistratixn un
dergoes a change by tho result, it takes two
years more before the now employes who
come into office become fully competent to
discharge tho duties of their respective
odcos, thereby resulting in an unsettled
state of affairs for the country, and csjie
cially in governmental circles, equal to tho
entire present presidential term.” Mr.
Clews also wants the President made ineli
gible to re-election.
Dr. Henry B. Bands, a well known physi
cian and surgeon of New York, died sud
denly tho other day, while returning homo

surgical operation upon the late Senator
Conkling, upon which rested the last hope
of the senator's life.

car bound to the South End, the other day. Two
young women, he says, were sitting near him
who were apparently born on the Emerald Isle
about twenty-five years ago. They were ex
changing views on the great value to this coun
try of the accession to its population of the
large number of their country* folk.
‘What would this country be,” said one, “if
the Irish hadn’t come here?”
1 hen she wedt on to enumerate their indispu
table services in various directions. “Who was
it,” she demanded, “that opened the navigation
for the railroads?” The other could only lift
her lianas in admiration. Then the first* went
on toeulogize their help during the late war and
allowed her fancy to depict, what they would
accomplish in the future.
“Vis.” said the other, breaking in, “but the

Queer System of Bookkeeping'.
From the Chicago Journal.
A little man who runs a prosperous drug
store on Cotiage Grove avenue has a system of
bookkeeping that is probably with ut a dupli
cate from one end of the cily to the oth r. II s
distinguishing trait is an inability to remember
names. ll** has a score of customers whom he
has traded with for years and whom he
knows by sight as well as he does his own
brother, but whose names he could not call off
to .-avp himself from hanging. The consequence
is that when three or four of these customers
have called in one evening and have made small
purchases which they wished chalked up. his
little book contains entries something like : his:
“Van with the Black Whiskers,cigars. ‘J3cents;”
“The Short-necked Man, Paregoric, 10 cents;”
’ The Handsome Man with the Gray Dill ialls,
50 cents worth of Jamaica Ginger,” and so on.
This is the only set of bookkeeping t .at the
little drug store man indulges in, and he says
his debtors are all good and never let 1 im lose
money by i;. But it would be interesting to
know how he’d address his envelopes if any* of
uis debtors let their accounts run long enough
to necessit ue the sending out of bills.
The House’s Work was Done.
From the Boston Gazette.
I heard the other day of a certain woman who
was not in what is culle 1 “society,” and who,
good soul, not ambition that way so far as
she was concerned, but she hail a daughter, and
dr' wanted that daughter to make a good
match. What did she do to accomplish that
end? She bought her a house in a somewhat
exclusive neighborhood, furnished in good
style, and set about her to entertain. Her
principal guests were men, to be sure, and
among tnosy who came was one who had rubbed
elbows with the “coaching set;” therefore lie
was the most desirable. He admired the girl,
he admired her elegant home; he proposed and
A grand wedding followed, with a wedding
breakfast and reception at the “homestead.”
After the bride and bridegroom set out upon
their journey,'the old slipper was carried off on
the coach top, the house was closed, and is now
for sale, anil at a sacrifice, its work is done,
and I he good mother has retired to more modest
quarters I ought to give the street and num
ber of this house, for it might do as good work
for other mammas with marriageab e daugh
ters; but I would not like to betray the worthy
woman who devised the scheme.
At the Chrysanthemum Show.
From the New York World.
There were also some specimens, never before
exhibited, of the Japanese variety*, shown by E.
Fewkes A Son of Newton Highlands, Mass.,
which called forth loud encomiums of praise.
Chief among them were the Kioto, of a deep
yellow color, with incurved petals reflexing at
the outside: the Lillian B. Bird, a most remarka
ble specimen, but not fully developed, with a
bloom six inches in diameter of a distinct shade
of shrimp pink, and having tubular petals; the
Empress of Japan, a pure white bloom, with
fineiy incurved petals. Avery curious looking
bloom in this lot was the Medusa, white in color,
with very long petals resembling the tentacles
of a jellyfish. All the above described chrysan
themums carne to this country from Japan
in the same lot as the Mrs. Alphous
Hardy. Another lot of blooms that
also were much admired were from the seedling
named Mrs. Andrew Carnegie. This flower was
originated by William Hamilton, the superin
tendent of parka In Alleghany City. His of the
Japanese variety, with petals slightly incurved,
of a rich blood coior inside and i.ronze outside.
This plant was awarded the special prize of a
solid silver cup donated by Mrs. Andrew
Carnegie for the best seedling chrysanthemum
not shown prior to 18*8. A seedling anemone,
named Mrs. T. F. (jane, originated by H. A.
Gane, and grown and exhibited by Elijah A.
Wood of West Newton, Mass., was also much
admired. W. A. Wilbur, Bethlehem, Pa., ex
hibited a number of very large blooms, mostly
Japanese. The Frank Thompson, of a pale
silvery pink color, incurving and almost white
underneath petals, was probably* the most con

A Fascinating: Warrior.
From the Pittsburg Dispatch.
Recently a young married man of this city,
who bas*a pretty taste in matters of "bigotry
and virtue,” as Mrs. Malaprop would say. some
what alarmed his wife by sending home, while
he was away on an eastern trip, a life sized
figure dressed in antique Japanese armor. Per
haps you have seen something of the sort. Tie
armor is covered with some sort of gum solu
tion which is nearly black in color. The helmet
is furnished with a visor covering half the
parehment colored face of the dummy warrior,
and this, with a grinning mouth, above which a
red mustache bristles, makes up a vary terrific
However, the warrior was set up in an alcove
on the staircase, as the master of the house
directed in his letter. Holding a formidable
spear in the right hand the image of this
Japanese Hector of antique attire truly made
an awe inspiring sentinel on the stairs.
When the young man returned home from the
east he entered the hall unannounced and stood
for a moment gazing admirably at what he had
slangil.v talked of as “his Japanese jags.”
Then he called for his wife, and she with the
3-year-old baby in her arms came tripping
down stairs. As mother and child passed the
landing where stood the Japanese warrior the
babe held cut her chubby arms and tried to
embrace the grewsome creature s head, ex
claiming as her mother tried to make her
release her hold: “My p’ltty papa— -I wan’ to
The tme pspa in the hall below watched this
proceeding with uncomfortable sensations.
When he had embraced his wife he asked her
how she liked the Japanese warrior.
“I don’t care much for it, John, it’s so ugly.”
she replied, “but Ethel thinks the world of it.
She called it ‘papa’ directly it arrived, and she’s
been crazy to Kiss it whenever she’s on the
stairs. Yesterday when young Mr. Higgs was
here she insisted on taking him up stairs to see
her ‘papa,’ and you ought to have heard Charlie
Jonu changed the subject at once. Charlie

Ethel again. The jA|>an'Mie warrior is on his

A correspondent of the Boston Transcript
objects to the notion that a “cat sucks away a
child's breath.” He says: The “cat's sucking
away a child's breath” is merely the expression,
erroneous in its form, of a physiological fact.
All the feliftic possess poisouous breaths, In
tended by nature to act as an anaesthetic upon
their prey. If any adult will inhale but once
the breath, even of a cat, he will at once re
cognize this fact. Watch a cat playing with a
mouse. The mouse does not suffer, but is
stupefied ns if by ether. Livingstone, the
African explorer, states in his "Life” that,
when he was seized by a Hon and his arm
broken, the crunching of the broken arm gave
him no pain, so l>onuinbed were all lus senses
by the animal's breath. Now, cats like rest,
warmth, companionship and a soft couch. A
cat seeks Hie child, Its soft bed, and tho
warmth of its body, and lies down upon the
chest of an infant. Its weight impedes respira
tion, its breath anaesthetizes the child, and that

The opinion has lately boon expressed by Sir
R. Rawlinson, the eminent architect, that the
old Eastern plan of securing foundations by
forming deep wells and then filling them up
with concrete has been too much neglected, for
in this method security is afforded for the
loftiest structure in the most difficult ground.
Masses of concrete or of brick or stone work
placed on a compressible substratum, however
cramped and bound, may prove unsafe solidity
from a considerable depth being alone reliable.
Enlarging the area of a base or foundation by
footings can be resorted to, but mere enlarge
merit of Area may not in itself bo sufficient. A
lofty structure which is to stand secure must
have solidity sufficient to maintain each part in
the position in which it is first placed. Again,
a heavy embankment or heavy pile of budding
frequently disturbs the surfao • ground at a dis
tance of many yards, the subsidence causing a
corresponding rise ar *und or ou either side, as
the case may be. According to Raw linson, the
depth of a foundation iu compressible ground
ought not to be less than one-fourth the in
ter.ded hight above the ground; that is, for a
shaft of 300 feet the foundation should be made
secure by piling or by well sinking aud concrete
to a depth of 50 feet.
