Rev. E. E. Iligbee hits been re-uom- inated and confirmed by the State Sen ate of I'enn. as superintendent of pub lic education, a position which he has held for a number of years. Mr. II ig bee was formerly a preacher in Bethel and is well remembered hy the older in habitants. The musical festival and the liquor prosecutions have kept Kutluud agitat ed during the last few days. If the confusion continues the people of that town will be compelled to take a vaca tion and rest their nerves. The hot season is coming on and the human sys tem cannot bear a heavy strain. In accordance with a decision of the Supreme Court of Nebraska a mortgage on growing crops in that .Mate will henceforth have uo value ouly while the crop is growing. The point the Court makes is that a growing crop and a harvested crop are different things in the eye of the law. Somebody may undertake to call this good law in Ver mont. There is talk of a new county iu the south part of the State with Wilming ton as the new county seat. This would he a kiud of a mountain county. But, when the process of breaking up coun ties begins where will the end be? We want some work of that kind put in in this vicinity. The day may come when the changes desired can be brought a bout. On the first of May anew license law went into operation in Mass. Under the law there can be only one dramshop to one thousand inhabitants. Former ly there was one to each one hundred and fifty. Whether there will be less liquor sold with fewer shops or wheth er the few shops will do a heavier busl ness remains to be seen. It looks to us a little like creating a monopoly When the new census is taken there will be employment for forty thousand men. If any republicans have heretofore failed to secure appointments now will come their opportunity. Some think it will require men of valor to fill the position as at least a million old maids must be confronted with the question concerning their age. There are school ma'ams in this vicinity who think they have boys in their care fully equal to the undertaking. Gen. Fisk, the prohibition candidate for president has about, if not quite, concluded to leave that party and hence forth carry on business with the repub licans. The action ot the democrats in New Jersey, his own state,has disgust ed him with the idea of doing anything to helD that partv into power. Like a good many other prohibitionists he has come to the conclusion that more solid work can be done in the temperance cause through the republican party than by operating on separate lines. The immigration to this country from Europe this season is growing to enor mous proportions. If we had no laws against the Chinese we should be over run with ChiBamen. It looks as though we should meet the fate of the Roman Empire, be buried under successive del uges of barbarians from the breeding places of the Old World. The only difference is they come in poverty and not in military array, and yet they are armed with ideas and sentiments that may prove as dangerous to our institu tions as though they carried a million swords. We shall have some fierce battles to fight some day to maintain our liberties. Tke supervisors of schools under the new law have been chosen and will en ter upon their duties the first of July. They will find some difficult things to do, but probably none more difficult than to satisfy the people that the law is the best that could be made. So far as we know, the men selected are ex cellent men. llovr they will get along in their new places remains to be seen. One man nn lead a horse to water but half-a-dozen cannot make him im bibe the aqueous fluid. Mr. Dike may secure all the Federal legislation the most ardent reformer can desire to pre vent men and women from obtaining divorces, but there is not luw enough iu the universe to create domestic felic ity where two human wills are set over against each other. To lessen divorces causes must be removed. This must be done chiefly by moral influences. It will not do to depend too much upon civil law. me tact is mere are uisor ganizing tendencies in modem society. These are strengthened by the woman's rights agitations, and special legislation in regard to holding property by women. Marriage is losing its sanctity and be coming a busineas partnerstiip witn time limitations. If we wish to restore the marriage relation to its old signifi cance we must remove some of these disintegrating influences and place men and women in their old time social and civil relations. If this cannot be done then there must be new remedies to meet the evils growing out of the chang ed condition of affairs. There ought to be greater uniformity iu the divorce laws of the several States, but whether Congress can help this matter is an op en question. ENFORCING PROHIBITION. Some of the papers in the State are having some skirmishing about the en forcement of prohibition. There seem to be numerous violations of the law m the larger towns, and some jump at the conclusion that the law is not good. But there is the ever ready answer that all laws are violated, and if they are to be repealed on that account we should soon be without law. A man can put himself into any attitude on this sub ject that he chooses and make himself believe that his own is the only tenable position. We have not secured consti tutional prohibition in this State but we have a very stringent prohibitory law and the legislature at every session draws the lines a little closer to meet contingencies that are continually aris' ing. The last legislature cinched a lit' tie closer, and this stirred up the rum element a little more, and more noise is made over violations. It has been intimated that the Gov. did not fully approve of all the measures he signed, but that he wished to keep in favor with the radical temperance element of his party. It is easier to say a thing of this kind than to prove it. Whatever the Gov. may think he would not give himself away, and we have no right to assume that he acted otherwise than in accord with his convictions. We have no special theories about this business, Our chief desire is that there be a stop put to rum-selling nd rum-drinking and the evils that flow from these prac tices. How to do this must be deter mined in part by experiment. In some communities one method will operate, in another community some other meth od must be tried. A body of legisla ttjrs will, as a rule, be representative of the communities from which the va rious members come in respect to feel ing about temperance. It is safe to say as a rule, that just such kind of legisla tion can be enforced with reasonable efficiency as can be secured where the business of legislation is conducted in an open-handed manner. We hear no serious complaints about the unfitness of the prohibitory laws in those States where they have been operated long est. The real intent of law, the sup pression of crime, has been best secur ed in them. The pauper and criminal classes are less a burden in those States than in any of the others. It is clear to our minds that prohibition is better than license in those States. There may be cities within the borders of the prohibition States where high license would be better, but would it be wise to lower the standard of legislation on this matter to conform to the prevailing sentiment in a few cities, and expose all the rural communities to great evils in consequence. To bring the ' matter closer to ourselvesp Vermont is a State of rural communities. Would it be the proper thing to do to recede from our position as a prohibition State, and to adopt high license because iu Rutland and it may be in two or three other places violations of the law have beeu flagrant, and expose all the rest to evil that invariably come in where the leg islative standard is lowered. The mor als of rural communities, well-to-do country villages, Hre generally better than those of cities. Shall we brin our legislation to the standard of th country or lower it to that of the city In Vermont the country element pre dominates. We believe in legi-lathi for the country. And inasmuch as i this mutter we must have the same law for city aud jouutry special effort must be made to enforce the law in the cities It is not to be expected that the law can be fully carried out in all places and at all times. It is hardly to be ex pected thut prohibitory laws can be as rigidly enforced as some other laws. Thev cut closer to the habits of the people, they can be evaded more easily They relate to a practice about the mo rality of which men question when they do not closely examine. But we are inclined to think that our temperance laws are reasonably well enforced. In smaller as well as in larger places some one will take advantage of a lethargic public sentiment in the matter, aud uu dcrtake the sale of harmful liquors mi der false colors. But as a rule such men find many obstacles in their way ami they are apt to have short careers Some will say that there is as much li quor drank as formerly. We doubt the statement, but if it be true, the drink. ing is done on the sly. Men have a feeling of shame in doing violence to their own moral sense. In keeping li quor out of sight the temptation to en ter upon the practice of drinking is re moter and less effective in the case of the young. Fewer drunkards are made where drinking is under ban. License in regard to any evil is always a ques tionable expedient. Where we can se cure something better and stronger it is folly to talk about resorting to it. We have men in this State who favor license, but in nine cases out of ten they driuk or they want a color of res pectability given to the practice in case they wish to take it up, or they have cider to sell, or they wish to curry the favor of certain elements iu the com' raunity with reference to contingencies that may arise in politics. The lead ing sentiment ot our people favors pro hibition. The great objectiou raised by many young men who are disposed to take up cycling is its apparent expensiveness. To those who are thus agreeably in clined, a few words ou the subject will not come amiss. A certain wheelman in this city gives us the following his tory of his investments in cycling. which goes to show that he is ahead instead of out, so far as the "filthy lucre" is concerned. His experience is : "I bought my first wheel, a second hand one to learn on, for $40 and sold it for a trifle less than the original cost after saving some $32 which would otherwise have been spent in car fares. I then bought a finer wheel and have saved almost enough to pay for it alone and still have the wheel, which will at any time bring half of its cost." The foregoing is given to show that many a clerk on a small salary can en joy the exhilarating benefits of cycling. while its health giving qualities cannot be overestimated. Young man, get a wheel. The Critic. There is nothing that a father or mother can do that will do more to save a weak and sickly boy .han to put him on a bicycle and let him ride when ever he can get spare time. The ex ercise will not only be a benefit to him from a physical standpoint but it will do him good morally. Gazette. A PLEASANT EXCURSION. We advise all our friends who want to see a large section of this goodly land aud visit the magic cities of the "New South" in the most economical and comfortable manner to go on the Rice Excursion that leaves Boston next Saturday. Although the party will go in Vestibule Pullman trains, without change, eating and sleeping in a palace hotel on wheels and with a fine body of gentlemen and ladies as ever left New England, the whole expense will be less than $100 or about half what the car fare would be iu the usual way. The party will go via the Shenandoah val ley, East Tenn. to Chattanooga, Fort I'ayne, Ala., Memphis, across the state of Arkansas, through the Indian terri tory to Denisou, Texas. The return trip will be through Ky., Ohio, I'enn., N. Y., and Mass. Telegraph W. P. Rice, (uincy House, Boston to save a place for you and go. You will not regret it. THE NATIONAL GAME. PLAY BALL, ANS. Ha Telia is Cleveland Ileporter That the Chicagos WIU Win ths 1'eunanU Captuin Anson was found in a very amiable mood at tbe Weduell House, aud consented to express a few opinions rel ative to the National frame. "You have a very lively boll team here," he said, when asked what he thought of the Cleve land club. "The men are all (rood fielders and fine base runners, but I'm afraid they're going to be weak at the bat." "How will the club compare with the Indianapolis or Pittsburgh I" The old man shook bis head. "I don't think it is as strong as eitber of the teams you pauied.". .-, - "How about the Washingtonsl" "Well, you've got a good chance to beat the Senators out. They've made a very bad start, and from present appearances tho. Cleveland are the stronger clubof the two If they could bat ths ball they would be all right with any of them. Btill, your players may bit harder later on. Jt often happens that a club which starts out mean improves as the season ad vanres, wnile, on tbe other hand, a team that begins well may end up badly. We have always liked Cleveland first-rate, and were glad to see you back. We uaed to draw well in Detroit, but I guess the crowd there waited for us. Yes, Cleveland is undoubtedly a better base-ball town than Detroit." "Where are you going to land the Chi cago club?" In notch one. Tou can put that down solid. Anson is out for the pennant. It's true we've lost several games, but that fact hasn't discouraged us in the least. At Pittsburgh we ran against an old Jonah and lost two games. One of them ought to have been ours. At Indianapolis we lost two more games, but one of those defeats should have been a victory. People have been talking about my club's weakness at the bat, but I think the record will show that that's just our strong point. We've made more hits so far than any other club In the league. I'm not a bit afraid of either New York or Boston. I've a better club than either of them. "Do you think your team has been weak ened any by the dismissal of Daly, Sullivan, Baldwin and Petlitt" "Well, no; I don't think it has. I've as sober and respectable a lot of men as yon will find in any business, I don't care what It is. Anson can go to bed and sleep oom fortably now. My team Is composed of gen tlemen. I invite Inspection. I can trust any of them in any company. The boy are all sober and well-behaved, and that's Just what is going to land me on top. Sobriety will win bail games right along." It is only fair to Captain Anson to say that the interview above printed was had before that lost game with the Cleveland on May 4. THE ROBINSON AFFAIR. Von der Ahe's Quarrel with Him Is Cost- Ins; the Hrowna (huhm. Robinson, the Browns' second baseman. is still in town, says the 8U Louis Globe Democrat, and, as a result, the champions were again "murdered" at Kansas City. Von der Atte will learn to his cost that be can not fine his men indiscriminately. Kob inson is tbe last man in the world to kick. Last year he wae fined fifty dollars for driuking, Von der Ahe taking the word of a well-known base ball enthusiast as evi dence. The other members of tbe team had been drinking, too, but nothing was done with them. Robinson paid the fine without a murmur. This year he was playing good ball and taking tbe best care of himself. Tbe team was on the best of terms, and was playing tbe best ball in its career. Von der Ahe, by one absurd error, has turned the team topsy-turvy and placed them at tbe mercy of tbe Kansas Citys, whom they easily outrank. This may ba management, but tbe average enthusiast will fail to see it. To allow the mistake of a blockhead of a gate-keeper to coat the team the pennant is the most asinine exhi bition of stubbornness that can be imagined. Robinson was wrong la talking as he did te tbe gate-keeper, and is willing to apologise for it. This should be sufficient. Tbe days for slavery in base-ball are over. If Von der Abe intends to fine his men for every error they make he will wi.ti up about sixth in the pennant race. Nothing new developed in the affair yesterday. George Munson bad a long talk with Robinson, which resulted ki nothing. He bore a tele gram from Von der Abe to the effect that every day Robinson laid off it would cost him twenty-five dollars. Robinson's answer was to "make it five hundred dollars at once." Kobinson can not consistently go to Kansas Citr. Before ne ten von der Abe suspended the second baseman without pay. He is therefore really not a playing member of tbe team. The puolto is with Robinson ts tbe fight, and will show it when the t eartnraa, ..
