Blaino crow and Logan sauce i.s too much for even a republican. The "Blaine Grand March" is now out. It is set to the tune of Mulligan Guards." The Hayes opinion about the Chicago nominees has not been inquired for by the republicans, but it is under stood that he will vote for the tat tooed ticket, with the proviso that lie shall not be called on to contrib ute to the campaign fund. The Atlanta Constitution says that for a small town Key West makes an unusual amount of noise. The population is largely composed of Spaniards and Cubans, and their plots intrigues and conspiracies keep the village in ferment all the time. There is a Cuban paper published here, and its rabid utterances annojr the loyal Spaniards not a little. The Spanish government watches Key West with sleepless vigilance, as it is believed that the next expedition against Cuba will be organized among its turbulent citizens. It is something of an anomallv to have this virtually foreign town under the stars and stripes, and the specta cle of Cuban patriots plotting in se crecy, and dodging around under ecver of midnight to escape the spies of a despotic government is decidedly picturesque if nothing else. THE MOItAIi TO BE 1)11 AWN. At Chicago the power and emolu ments which should be given for the good of the people, were shameless ly promised to secure Arthur's nom ination. Promises were lavishly dis tributed by Blaine, and each dele gate suficeptible to such influences heard the chink of ready cash. Bills were cut in two, and one half was kept by Phelps and the other given to the delegate till he should earn the whole by voting for Blaine. In the beginning, such a state of tilings was foretold by Hamilton, and the prophecy heard with a sigh by Jef ferson. It was intended that men of calm judgment from the different states should meet when party strife had calmed and the echo of the warriors had died away. Then these delegates, selected by the peo ple, should elect by ballot the man best fitted in their judgment to pre side over the republic. Now the electoral college is only an expen sive machinery which grinds out the answer demanded by tlio people. What an outcry there would be should this machine register a result not in accordance, with the popular expectations ? If the end of their deliberations is already known, win should the machine be set to work ? It was once our boast that the cost ly red tape characteristic of Euro pean governments was eliminated from ours. Let us discard the elec toral college and vote directly for president as for governor, not for men bound in honor to express no preference of their own. We claim to be the freest people under the sun. Yet in England no policy can be maintained by the government contrary to the will of the people. With us, the party in power do as seemeth good unto them and we must dance to its piping for four years. We may, have a score of tidal waves in as many different states, but the president and his cab inet is independent of us, and the servant is master for a full term. The executive supported by the senate can afford to laugh at a tidal wave which only changes the com plexion of Congress. Yet the house of representatives alone can come directly from the people, therefore .... . ' with it should rest the authority of the people are we free when no change of opinion in the voter can affect the policy of the government for four years ? Or are wc so con servative that we only think once in such a term? Let us vote directly for our chief magestrate, and there will be no bribery of electorial colleges; give the lower house the power to dis miss the secretaries of tate, or of war, or of the treasury or the navy whose course is not approved by the people and there will be a keen er appreciation of the fact that the voter is King in a republic. Give the president a longer term if neces sary, but if the secretary of state hurries us into a Avar against our will, or he of the treasury makes a milic on Wall Street to line his own pocket, and a "tidal wave" fills the halls of congress with indignant representatives of the people, let a vote of censure displace the pre sumptions chariteer from the seat he had fancied his own. Political parties are necessary to government with us, but the party which separates its interests from those of the people is already doom ed. The issue between the two now is only the one of race in the south. In the north and west the public sees in the election only one unseem ly scramble for spoils. Hereafter, if neither party puts itself squarely on some live issu the disruption is inevitable. In Florida those who wish for a compromise with political enemies show an utter want of po litical sagacity. The clean celar issues can be appreciated; if none of these are put forward the con flict will degenerate into party duels on personal claims in the different counties. If democrats must nomi nate republicans to secure republi can support, why make any fight? Is the dear people no utterly, mon strously senseless that it will divide itself merely for a contest whoso onl) object is to profit or amuse ment of a few privileged politicians? If there is anything in which wo differ, give us formal notice in the platform and then give us a general who will represent this principle. But if you cannot give us a definite platform nominato nobody. Make no fight for the sake of fighting or to secure a change among the fa vored few. AVJiy the Democrats Should Nomi nate G rover Cleveland. The Even in? Post. There is one consideration which we sincereljr trust that the Democrats will not overlook at this crises, and that is, that the extent and promptness of the revolt now going on in the Republican ranks is largely due to the success, in the largest sense of the word, of the previous revolt in this State in 1882. We believe that it would have been much more diffi cult to prepare Republicans to repudiate Rlaino and Logan, and the repudiation of them when it camo would have been much less extended and less effective, if the overthrow of Folger had not turned out as it has turned out. By this wo mean that the mere election of Cleveland by a tremendous majority would have done little to prepare Rupublioan voters to resist corrupt part' managoment in the larger field of the Presidency. "What has done this is Cleveland's great success as a Governor. His steadfastness, his unfaltering resistance to the baser sort in both parties. his sagaeitj' and diligence in the transaction of public business, have not only given immense satisfaction to the best men of both parties, but they have had the important end novel effect of making Republicans feel that lxilting is a safe and efficient as well as a heroic remedy for Republican abuses, and has opened the eyes of a great many to the fact that in spite of the experience of the last twenty years public servants of the lest class mav still le found in the Democratic ranks. Mr. Cox, known in familiar story as "Sunset," is too cautious to permit the bee to buzz alout his ear. "Have vou any Presidential aspiration?" asked the Washington Capital gossiper of the little joker from New York. "Oh, no," re plied Cox quickly. "There are so many Jumbos in the Presidential race from New York that there's no room for the baby elephant." Some of the electors in tho south of London are said to contemplate bringing forward Hiss Helen Taylor as a Parli mentary candidate at the next election. They believe there is no legal obstacle to the election of a woman, although wo men have not a Parliamentary vote. Mrs. Elizabeth Stuart Phelps has put forth a theory that in the race for im mortality the same conflict takes place as in the phy sical world. The fittest only survive in the process of spiritual evolu tion. Mrs. Tom Thumb, who is now fortv- ' - live vears old, stopped growiiltr Olllv a ! and Jane Marshall, his wife, do apiar and ad , , , swer the complainants bill filed atrainst them few years ago, and says, as hers is a case ln the Court on or before tjie 7th dav of July, of nrrstrtl Wdnv.nnt .Lo slirml.l nnt i 1 otherwise said bill may Ih taken pro con- l ' 1 he surnrised if she should besrin to rrovsid Court, this, 21st Matvh, ist fnn - I a?ain. .

The Times will enter upon the new year stronger and more prosperous than ever be fore in its history more widely read and quoted, more heartily commended, and more liercely criticized, with a more complete- or ganizai ion, and an able ssoff of contributors and with the same indejK'ndence and fearless ness that has made it successful and ixjwerful in the past. The 1'imes has no party to follow, no candi dates to advance, but will meet every issue, as it has ever done, with consistent devotion to the right, to honest government, and the pub lic welfare. Anil, while maintaining its ikjsI tion as the leadintr journal of Philadelphia, it -will aim to e continually in the advanco ln tli. that can add value to a newspaier. The value of a newspamjr is not in its size or display, but in the intelligence and care, the conciseness and freshness with which it is edited. The Times spends lavishly for news, from all parts of the world, but all its dis patches are carefully edited and condensed, in order to give the complete news of the day ir the most concise and attractive shape, and with it a large variety of entertaining and instruc tive reading. The best writers at home and abroad are employed to enrich its columns, and to make it a journal adapted both to the busy man and to the leisure of the home cir cle, a welcome visitor to intelligent and honest citizens of every political, religious and social tate. The Weekly Times is altogether different from the weekly newspapers of twenty yean ago. The day of those papers hare gone by. The telegraph and lietter local newspapers everywhvre, especially in the thriving centres of rural population, have made the old weekly metropolitan newspaper unsatisfying. Those that cling to their ancient usages have lost their hold on our forward-moving people; they are but shadows of theirformer greatness, anl they have but a shadow of their former powr Those papers have had their usefulness, but it is gone: and, with it, they are going, too. It was not the fault of the pajers: it was the im provement of the country that brought about tbe change. Men and women, wherever they live, now require fresher news; and they re quire more than news. The Weekly Times gathers off the types of every passing week whatever has lasting In terest to the people at large, and aetg it before them in such generosity of paper and print as would have astonished us all twenty yeorsawo DAILY-Twelvecentea week, fifty ceqw a month, $h a year, two cents a copy v"?'ur ccnlsji Py. & a ELKLi One con v. 2 h. pr-r ko i-a & a year ; ten copies, $15 a year ;' twenty corC pes $ii a year, with one copy fre to the gut-- Boston Post ip ot every club. .
