WKDNESDAY, AI'llII, 11, 1883. When political reform takes root in Ohio it will be the result of death-bed repentance and politics in Ohio will be of the past. There has been some tort of campaign going on in Ohio ever since its "idee" was broached. "The dangerous classes," says Dr. Howard Crosby, "are those who are engaged in amassing colossal fortunes the giants who tread ordinary men under their heel and care not how much people suffer." What a singu lar man this learned man must be 1 How lonely he must feel when he considers he is the only person in the country who does not aspire to be dangerous! The resignation of Lorne as Governor Gen eral of Canada is expected, and a report is current that the position will be offered to Mr. Forster, the late Irish Secretary. Korster's place in politics is peculiar. Though a thorough-going Liberal, he does not work with the present Government ; in fact, he nearly wrecked it by his sudden resignation of his Secretaryship. Hut he is regarded as a "coming man." RAiLROArs in Missouri are now required to give 20 days notification before Killing freight rates. The idea, it is said, was borrowed from Congressman Reagan's inter-State com merce bill, ia which provision was made for Ave days notice. It is a commendable one and the measures which are the outgrowth of it may be beneficial in protecting the public against unjust discrimination. An election was held in Athens, Texas, a few days ago, for which there is no parallel In political history. It appears that a majority of the citizens of the place for various reasons determined to break the power of the corpora tion, and for that purpose decided to nom inate and elect none but colored men to of fice. The result was that for Mayor Lewis Pearson, colored, received 26 majority over M. E. Richardson, white j for City Attorney, Jerry Murcliison, colored, three majority over J. J. Faulk, white ; for City Marshal, Jack McGruder, colored, 28 majority over A. A. Faulk, white. It was previously understood that none of the officers-elect would qualify, and accordingly a new election will be held. Stockmen will be pleased to learn that the Government intends to conduct experiments in Washington with the view of ascertaining the origin and nature of Texas cattle fever, pleuro-pneumonia and other diseases which have worked havoc to stock interests in this and other States. To that end the Depart ment of Agriculture has leased a tract of ground which is now being put in order for the reception of cattle to be placed thereon by Dr. D. E. Salmon, who has for a number of years been employed by the department in the investigation of diseases of cattle, swine and poultry. The measure will be an important one to Texas, and reports of the experiments will be carefully noted by stockmen through out the State. Tub extravaganzas of genius are akin to in sanity, A French student of human nature having to point out in a company of 12 the one lunatic among them declared the most sensi ble person present was him he subsequently earned was the lunatic, and that the lunatic was no lets a personoge.thsn Honore de Bal zac, whose explanations of visionary schemes had impressed his judge as evidence of an un balanced mind. Poor Dalzac. Rich, yet poor. Rich in genius, yet poor in all that ten ded to true happlnesi. His counterpart we find In this country. Adirondack Murray, Murray's lines of thought, his versatility, his brilliancy, his methods of expression have often reminded us of Balzac. In character, too, he is the same. Visionary always, when he was the beloved pastor of Park street church In Iloiton, when he descended from the pulpit and, with aching heart, left the shadows of the shapely steeple, when he buried himself in the wilds of Texas he rat tled on as genius gone mad. He is in New Yotknowand he asserts lie owes but $500, not $12000 as reported, but whether $500 or $12000 his debt is proof anew that the mind constructed for the pursuit of the higher arts Is not the one suited to what are known as "business" achievements. Tiik red cut-throats the gross carelessness of the agent at San Carlos reservation let loose on a semi-defenseless people belong to the band led by the Chieftain Juh, whose name has become on the border a synonym for cruelty of the worst description. They are Chiricahua Apaches and formerly lived in a, reservation among the Dragoon mountains in Southeastern Arizona. In 1876, when they were removed from there to San Carlos, Juh and his band escaped Into Old Mexico, where they remained a terror to the border country for five years, during which period they com mitted many atrocities. Eventually they were induced to enter San Carlos reservation, but they remained there only nine months, when they again entered upon a depredatory ca reer. The main body of Apaches at San Carlos have been credited with peaceful in tentions, and, indeed, have established grounds for such estimation by fighting those of their own friends and relatives who were hostile to the white settlers. Hut, notwith standing the attitude of the majority and the vigilance of the Judiah police, who are noted for their bravery, fidelity and efficiency, from time .to time, whenever removals of bands of Indians to San Carlos have occurred, some of the lawless and criminal have escaped and found refuge and allies with Indians of similar condition in Mexico. Whenever the strength of the bands is deemed sufficient and a favorable opportunity presen ted raids are made across the border, result ing in the loss by peaceable people of stock and other property and, not. infrequently, of life. They are familiar with the country, stand exposure and deprivation well, seldom become fatigued, are provided with formida ble weapons and disconcert plans of the mili tary by carrying on a method of warfare dissimilar in every particular to the methods of civilized people. Because these marauding Indians were once of the reservation and are related to the San Carlos Indians Government seems determined to subject the San Carlos Indians to suspicion and to find in their proximity to the border a basis for the belief that they are in communication with the outlawed bands. This is manifestly unjust and will work great injury may bring about the hostility of the entire tribe of Chiricahua. The conduct of the main body of the Chiricahua gives rise to reason that they do not even sympathize wilh the marauders. Government should dis criminate between the two parties and not re peat the error it has so often made of inflict ing on the innocent punishment due the guilty, ond then, as If conscience-stricken, letting the guilty escape. The principtl offender in this instance is the agent t the reservation, and while censuring him for his laxity Government should not forget to abolish the pass system which he sets forth in his defense and is declared to afford numerous opportunities for leaving the reservation to join the hostile bands. lie Got Menu. She sobbed as if her heart would break, and the kind-hearted neighbor who dropped in for a friendly chat could not comfort her. Had she received bad news from any of her relatives or friends t No. Were her children causing her trouble? No. Difficulties in the church! No. Perhaps her husband's business was not prospering? But that was not it; her husband had never been so fortunate in his business as now. Finally it came out that her husband had stopped drinking, and that was the source of her grief. "He is so changed now," she tearfully ex plained. "From a lively, kind-hearted man he has become morose, cross and stingy. Why, when he was about hall full he was one of the cheerfulest men you ever saw, and he never came home wi'hout remembering to bring something nice for us. No matter how late it was, he'd al ways have something. Why, I've let him in many a time at 2 or 3 o'clock in the morning, when he would feel so bad that he would drop right down in Ihe parlor and go to sleep on the oilcloth, but I lould always depend on finding a turkey, or a can of oysters, or a ham, or something laying alongside of him. Yes, he was a good man when he was drunk. Hu was fulltr'n a goose when he bought the piano and my watch, and everything else that w.:'ve got that cost more thin 15 cents ; but that's all over with now, and I wish I was dead," and she burst into a fresh flood of teats and refused to be comforted. f Exchange, BIlHcollnnonuH.
