His scheme to put off tho city election until 1893, shows that he has something In view. It is said by this manoeuvre the Republicans will make no effort to pay their tuxes and by tho first Saturday in Juno 1898, the tax re ceipts will be generally out of date. As the Democrats expect to have the tax col lectors by that time, it Is imagined that the Republicans may be kept- from pay ing tluir tux or such errors may bo made in spelling their names as will invalidate them, while tho Democrats will bo fur nished gratuitously with all the receipts they may want. By this disfranchisement by tho aid of tho tax collectors, aud tie honest alteration of a few figures on the tally sheet, tho city may bo kept In the bauds of tho Democrats and given an hon est and economical government, scheme Is a plausible one, uud the fair minded and honest Democrats are all ex pected to vote for it.

Cruds Methods of Karlj Agee -HI hi leal References to the Poet—Beginning of What Hm Become an Almost Perfect and a Cheap System. It seems almost luoredlble, in view of the wonderful labyrinth of postal routes all over the world today, that there ever could have been a time when there were no postofflees, no letter carrier, no mail facilities at all. But, of oonrso, there had to be somo means of communication even in tho earliest ages, though these were confined for centuries to emperors and kings uud other great rulers. The emperors of Egypt, of Persia, of Assyria and of Romo held many lesser kings and satraps their vasaals. With these it was uec essary to communicate with certainty and regularity, and therefore couriers were employed to carry dispatohes and reports to and from the more distant provinces. Of course no one man or one horse could traverse the whole ronte, so sta tions were established along the roads at certain intervals, where couriors were always in readiness to relieve weary brothers, and carry on tho dispatches with uniform speed. These stations called "posts, " from the Latin word positum—fixed or placed—whence comes the name of our modern postal system. In the Old Testament frequent references to the posts. In II Chronicles you will find, "So the posts went with tho lettors," and "So the posts passed from city to city. " In Esther also and in Job and Jeremiah you will find other allusions to the posts. Bat they were never for the use of the common people. Tho Roman Emperor Augustus was tli© first to establish a system of posts suggestive of the present system. You havo heard tho saying, "All roads lead to Romo. " This was the origin of it: From Rome as a center post roads wero built, called "royal highways, " extend ing all over Europe. After the declino of tho Roman empire these post roads wero abandoned by degrees, and during the dark ages they almost cntiroly dis appeared. In tho thirteenth aud fourteenth turies, however, their need began to be so strongly felt that posts between dif ferent parts of the same country were established, and ed into other countries. These posts wero carried first by foot runners and then a little later by men on horseback. It was not long, though, before tho post privilege was extended, and it was found impossible for horseback riders to carry the increasing mail, so wheeled conveyances were provided, and tho next step was for these conveyances to carry passengers as well as the mail. And thus from the post was evolved the mail coach. What this meant to our hitherto shut in ancestors it is hard for us of the present day to realize even faintly. But it is safe to say that tho evolution of the publio post and tho mail coach did more than any other one thing to hasten civilization. In tho reign of tho Emperor Freder ick III, Francis von Laxis, whose grand father is said to have established a post al service across the Tyrol and Styria, entered the service of the house of Haps bnrg and becamo the founder of the modern postal system. Through Von Laxis the emperor established regular pests throughout his kingdom between tho years 1440 aud 1498, and at the be ginning of the sixteenth century the Austrian post becamo tho international post of the Hapsburg dynasty. In France the University of Paris or ganized a postal service in the thirteenth century which flourished until 1719. In parts of Europe then? were brother hoods and mercantile guilds which es tablished posts and postoflioes subject to the government. In England, in 1668, Rowland Hill started a private post, but Cromwell's heavy hand carao down on the enter prise, and the men who carried tho hit ters wero trampled down and killed by his soldiers. Later on Mr. Hill came to t hose were extend tho front again, instituted many ro* forms in the service, and ut last gavo to England areal and effective postal serv ice. Louis XI of France founded a postal system iu 1404, which was greatly im proved by Charles IX in 1565. But it was not alone the Christian nations that felt the need of a postal service. When tbe Spaniards invaded South America, they found syste news of their lauding was carried to the inca with incredible swiftness, the post being runners, who carried around their waists knotted cords, a code of sig nals or sign writing. Coming down to our own country, suppose wo tako a peep at tho mail methods iu vogue in its earlier days. Let us lake us u typo tho postal service between Boston and New York, where, iu 1762, a post was established "to goe monthly. " Post riders, starting at tho • from each end of the route, carried tho mails. Leaving on Monday morning, they met aud exchanged bags at Saybrook, C Saturday. Then each , so that the thu following iturned to his starling point, which, of course, took nearly another week. II was Benjami Franklin that, in postal present system is founded. In tho early days of this sys tem rates were charged that seem out* of the present day—be 18% •cuts for points beyond, •so this led toswindling'tlie gov ernment und the smuggling of letters. Private pxrtius ciurietl mail secretly at lower rates, and in 1839 Hamden's ex J 775, suggejted the pit wliich lor servico rageou: twcc.li Boston aud New York, cents, and ' Of 0 press entered tho field, carrying letters •ruled in bundles und other packages loss than legal rates. But in us tbo government low •ed its charges all these smuggler dropped put of the race. There wt "itey in it (lit u. —Philadelphia Tiiuea • K'.ul'fl ■'M' f'onst I put ion l limin'.

Attorney Spruance stated to-day that tho Supreme court was In fault. In the Constitutional Convention while quoting from Blnckstono he said that in 1070 came the Norman conquest and thero was a. struggle to mulutaln the Saxon customs. But this liually culminated In the Mugna Charta about 150 years after the Norman conquost. This churtor, our friend from Christiana tells us, simply the King should not Judge, b King's judgos might.
