Wednesday. Dayton Daily Democrat.
Exactly. You tell the troth, but your
punctuation is a little faulty. A comma
is omitted after "in."
The Democrat" ot the house are in a
frame of mind not to let the Grant-retirement
bill pass; and the chances are that
it will be smothered by indirection that
is, by a refusal to take it up out of its
Voorhees was the unanimous choice of
his party's caucus in the Indiana legisla
ture for nomination to succeed himself in
the U. S. senate; and Governor Porter
received -the like cumplimant (vain, but
honorable) from the caucus of the Repub
licans. There w,as a slugging-match between
John L. Sullivan and Paddy Ryan in New
York the other night, which the police put
an end to before the close of the first
round. There were about $11,000 taken
in as admittance fees, and Roscoe Conk
ling was among the spectators.
John R. McLean is said to have it in
his mind to elect a Democratic legislature
again and procure it to elect him senator
from Ohio in place of John Sherman.
John R. is sometimes good at electing and
- procuring, but sometimes he misses it, as
he did when Lot Wright's marshals be
came epidemic in Cincinnati one day.
At a convention of Jewish rabbis now
being held in New York, Dr. Gottheil,
speaking on the "Drift of Modern
Thought," said that "Christian ministers
hardly ever speak of the Trinity or origi
nal sin," and that "Christians are becom
ing such good Jews it is hard to find any
thing to contradict in their sermons."
Yes, there is not as much difference now
as there was one day several years ago on
a little hill just outside ol Jerusalem.
Hon. Allen O. Mjers speaks ol those
representatives who "rise to a question
of privilege" on account of what news
paper correspondents may say of them,
as taking re luge under "the baby act." He
says no man has been more abused through
the newspapers than he has, and probably
he merited it sometime;, but he had never
yet arisen "to a question of privilege."
But Mr. Myers is a newspaper man him
self, and can get even with those who at
tack him; while members who have no
organ of their own can not strike back ex
cept through the "question ol privilege."
We are pleased to observe that General
Grant is earning fair remuneration for the
work of his pen. The Century pays him
$10,000 lor the three articles on the war
which are to appear in that magazine.
From the extracts which hast; been pub
lished, we judge that these articles will
have mure value as authentic contribu
tions to the history of tbe rebellion than
as literary productions. They tell the
story in language as bald of ornament as
that of a public document on agriculture;
but Julius Caesar's Commentaries on the
Gallic War are as unpretentious, and they
have lived through the ages. What Gram
has to say will interest posterity more than
There is said m be a decision of the su
preme court of the United States to the
effect that, when the supreme court of a
state has once pronounced a law constitu
tional, a subsequent contrary decision does
not affect the rights acquired under the
first. This dictum of the U. S. court
would make the Scott law operative and
binding up to the date of the last decision
of our supreme court, and entitle the state
to hold all the taxes paid into the treasury
by saloonists up to that date (that is, ab
solutely all, for there were none paid in
after). II there is such a decision as that,
it will be worth two or three million dol
lars to the tax-payers of Ohio. Bring that
authority out, if it is handy.
The poetizer of the lollowiig seems to
think he is sarcastic; and, as he is fairly
respectable in rhyme and rhythm, we are
perfectly agreeable to leave him in print
to our readers, with the understanding
that, if they discover who tbe "We" is
that is meant, they will promptly notify
this office by telephone-

,Phjs,iciana lent to India by the British
gcverniqent for the investigation of
cholera report adversely to Koch's theory
of the bacilli. They fed mice, rats, and
monkeys with cholera excretions, and the
animals remained normal.
lated rabbits, cats, and monkeys with
Koch's "comma bacilli," bat the patients
refused to take the cholera. They report
that "no bacteria of any kind and no
organisms of known form and character
occur in the blood or any other tissue" of
cholera victims. So the awlul pestilence
remains as great a mystery to science as
ever. Empiricism must still battle with it
a while longer, as it has done hitherto.

According to tbe English programme

bite off a good deal more than she can
First, it is proposed to unite the em

least, by giving Canada, Australia, and
the other colonies High Commissioners,
one for each, who shall report to and ad

Then Great Britain's "naval supremacy is
to be more firmly established."
This prompts the suggestion to the sec

Next, England is to try to divert emigra
tion away from the United States by indu
cing her surplus people to settle in the En
glish colonies. She will try to do this, but
will she do it? We shall see.
Then, England proposes to. "acquire
nearly all unoccupied territory in Africa,
the whole of the Malay peninsula. New
Guinea, and the Louisiade group, and a
number of the islands in the eastern
Pacific," and "strengthen all independent
semi-civilized powers." Where she can
not "acquire" countries (to-wit, "gobble")
she proposes to "internationalize," that
is to say, so "fix" them that other nations
will not take possession of them.
After all this is done, she is to give
Home Rule to Ireland, which unfortunate
country will have a long time to wait for it
We shall see what Germany will have
to say about certain portions of this robust
programme. And perhaps an occasional
protest will come from other parts ol the

The magnificent nomination of William
JI. Evarts for Republican senator from
New York will cheer the heart of the
party throughout the nation. It is a
triumph of straight Republican principles.
I It is a triumph of brains over money. It
is a triumph ot the people over politicians.
It is a triumph of James G. Blaine.
Mr. Evarts is a Republican of the
straightest sect He is neither Stalwart
nor Half-Breed, but just a Republican.
He is not a man of factional or private
animosities, but a man who has unselfishly
served the party because he believed in its
principles, and who has on occasion dared
to rebuke it when its practices seemed to
him opposed to its principles.
Mr. Evarts was a candidate against a
very rich and very good man Levi P.
Morton. Mr. Morton is an excellent Re
publican, and worth millions. He is also
a man of respectable talent But he bears
no comparison with Mr. Evarts in this re
spect Evarts is a man of genius. Genius
in his case, though he has waited years
for the proper appreciation, has com
manded success. The people have at
last found him ont and complimented
themselves by preferring brains to money.
For Evarts's triumph is the people's.
There was a politicians' plot to beat him.
Numerous members ol the legislature were
elected by money from Morton's coffers.
They were expected to be grateful for the
assistance. They were; but the sentiment
of the people was too strong in favor of
Evarts for them to dare vote against him.
This sentimeut forced the caucus to an
open ballot, and the members were afraid
to go against the known sentiment of their
Mr. Evarts was a friend and earnest
supporter of James G. Blaine. He recog
nized him as the leader and the fairly and
riebtly nominated candidate o( the party,
and battled for him valiantly throughout
the campaign, against all the malign in
fluences of New-York factionalism, and
Conklingism, aud mugwutnpery, and
Beech err. His nomination is a glorious
victory for the friends of Blaine in New
York, who are the people of New York,
and a victory for Blaine.
Mr. Evarts's assured election to the
senate is a beginning of tbe series of vic
tories which are to return the Republican
party to power in 1888, and to restore the
nation to the hands of its defenders and
preservers. J be country is lo be con-
gratulated over this auspicious beginning
of the Republican opposition campaign. I

clear-sighted enough, too, to perceive
that art must be native to the soil.

A Ijoncly Death.
It was herein Detroit at one of the
city hospitals that I saw the saddest
funeral ceremony I ever witnessed.
It was that of a woman who hail lit
erally died by inches. Poverty, sor
row, and sickness had been her cons ta t
companions for jears,. and when at
last on a hospital bed she drew her last
breath it seemed a if there could be
nothing left to feel the pang of dissolu
tion nothing but skin and bone.
She had been well cared for in her
last sickness by those who gave their
time and service to the work of chari
ty, but it is doubtful if she knew it
Her mind lived in the past, and she
murmured in delirium of a happy home,
and seemed to be always caressing a
littlo child. Now she would talk to it
in a sweet mother-tongue, using the
fond, endearing Ianguago of love to
call it to her. again; she seemed to dread
somo terrible fate for it and besought
uod to save it even to take it away
from the evil to come. Always it was
the child that was present with her, so
that pain was naught the child that
she continually addressed as "Darling
Emma," and she died with that, name
on her lips.
This was all there was of tho dead
woman's history. The pall of a dark
past bad'fallen upon h. r. It was only
known that tho child about whom she
had raved. and, prayed was still alive,
and somewhere in the city. But so
far all search had failed to find her.
The brief funeral ceremonies at the
expense of the city, for. her's was a pau

Tarnished pine coffin, from which the
metal shells were already falling in a
shower of tawdry splendor, so imper
fectly were they fastened on.,. Her face
was composed and peaceful. Life and
death bad done their worst the battle
was now over.
In tbe chill and the silence the Toice
iof the young minister, cultured and
tuneful, sounded like a strain of music
All heads bowed as he recited:
I am the resurrection and tbe life
There was a scream a wail of heart
rending grief and thp service" was in
terrupted, as a woman, young and hag
gard, rushed into" the room" and threw
herself on the coffin: "she was dressed
'gaily in Bilk attire. A- long feather

about her bespoke, death , saddir than
"Mother mother," she moaned,
"why did you you not let me know?
Oh, I would have come to you and

" ui lusuiuu in tne souin. a case in
point occurred the other dar. Th
city editor of a great paper took a ho'
day and appointed one of the report
lal corps his pro tem. This promod
reporter requested another of the c'Ps
to attend to a certain matter, wliM he
refused, saying it was the citv ei'"s
business, not his. Words multip a
blow was struck, a scuffle ensu'. and
they were parted. Next monrg tno
temporary editor, grandson of famous
Napoleonic general, sent hisro'her
reporter a peremptory challege, i. e.,
one that leaves no room fo apology,
instead of one that bears thrpfovision
of unless or if.
The challenged reporter.ion of a fa
mous southern senator, w clearly in
the wrong from the start. His friends
felt so, and would have mde him apol
ogize, but no chance of tit was given.
With as much secrecy a possible tho
meeting took place under "The Oaks,"
as the old dueling grouidof the city is
called, and where man a famous duel
has been fought Tie seconds were
measuring off the groind when a letter
signed by some of me most prominent
citizens and old sadiers of tbe town,
was brought to fiem, praying tor a
postponement fora da,and -ubmission
of the matter to their arbitration. The
seconds decided to grnt it, and placed
their principals under arbitrament.
The result was that the committee or
dered the senator's son to apologize,
'which he did. The apology was ac
cepted,, and friendship reigned again.
So much for the progress of peace in
