The pcoplo who come to Phoenix express themselves ns much surprised itt our thrift and advancement, ami so far wo tnnko n pood impression on the strangers tliat conio within ourgntee. But nil that is necessary has not yet been done, and at very littlo cost im provements can bo ruaire'that will im prove tho nppuaranco of tho city very much. Not only its npponrnnco will be beautified but much will bo added to the convenience and comfort of our homo people and visitors. Wo have no walks as a matter of fact we do not need any now but the time haB been and will beiii;uin, that wo need them. Last winter and spring duritn: the rainy season thoro was not u decent crossing in tlie city, and tho only walks thnt would to any exten protect one against the rami woro up and down Washington street. No ono could come to liia business from any of tho resi dence portions of the city without mir ing down, nnd for weeks it wai impos sible for a lady to go out on foot. Peo ple from a distanco remarked about this, and said that while Phoenix peo ple had remarkable enterprise in some respects they hud very littlo in the matter of improving tho streets. Thie improvement of walks and cross ings will cost mora than all the other necessary improvements, but at the BOtne time no city ever lost a cent by by investing in such a way, nnd The Kurum.icAN hopes that this will be provided for before the ralnB begin again. Another thing thnt wo need right now and tihouid be attended to at once ia the extension of tho street sprinkling. This is now confined to n small portion of Washington nnd Center streets nnd the ground covered is altogether inad equate for the comfort of tho people. iho streets up and down Washing ton for four blocks from tho city hall, nnd two blocks on either side should be sprinkled every day. If this was done regularly wo would not experience the unpleasantness of tho dust wo had last fall and winter. Then the sprikling was not begun till the dust was three or four inches deep-, and it was almost im possible to get water enough on it to make tho streets firm and hard as they would have been had the work been done sooner, nnd in the latter cano it would take less water to do the cntlro season than tho amount neceseary to put tho neglected streets in good or even medium condition. It might bo woll to look into tho relativo costs nnd conveniences of this matter nnd ndopt the best and cheapest plan for comfort. Phienix has two boautiful plazas and it would enhance their appearance very much if nents wero put around their borders nnd along tho wnlks, so that if ono bo wished lie could go and spend it pleasant hour. Most people work during tho day and they do not feol liko stnnding during tho rest of the ovenine, Pluunix is excellont ns n heatth resort nnd is bclnir advertised as such. When pooplo come hero they ex pect sotno conveniencios with which thoy can entertain tliemschvs at least, nnJ they have a right to. Th 19 would 111,1.1. i -1 , nianu niu imrKM uiticu more attractive ami at the Ratlin time Phoenix would not ha doing anything inoro than nil other cities of oven less population do. It woull only coat n reasonable amount to get ono of tho Pluunix binds to play on tho pln7.11 throe nights out o! tho week, nnd it would, during the warm mouths bo n pleasant plaeo to cpend tho livening. This amount could easily bo made up by private subscription for Phienix citi zens, ns n rule, wish to Bee the city prosper. They only want tho matter sl.irled and put beforo them in a proper light, when wo venture to say that the public spirit of our people will show it-h-H Mipurior to that of any cltv in the territory. Kejimmy is a good thing in its place hut it tvwi ho rnrr led to un extont that is morn injurious than extravagance. Tho question In tho recent city election wm ' Pro.'rojj," ami 113 the mayor and eottuclhiieii uxpruised themselves ns IroprMivo men, don btless, such of theso things as lio In their jurisdiction will bi attended to as soon as thoy get organized for work. OAKII13.V3 IN TIIF3 DK!HRT. One of the most eiuvcssfiil experi ments in motion: times in reclaiming desert wastes is that which has -been mado by tho French in Algeria. The area of that provinco is about 330,000 square miles. Nearly one-half of this is included within tho limits of tho great Desert of Sahara. Much of this waste land is below tho level of the sea. Tho French agriculturists havo undertaken to reclaim the desert. They began by boring wells nt first as experiments. It was found that wnlor could be obtained at doptli8 ranging from 100 to -100 feet. Whorover wnter could bo brought to tho surfneo of tho land great fertility was tho result. At the last accounts thero wero no less than 13,000 wells in operation. 15y this means 12,000.000 acres hnve been redeemed, nnd tho work still goes on. Tho water is col lected in reservoirs, and is conducted to tho various plantations. On what was formerly iv sandy waste thoro aro now l'JO.OOO acres planted with vines. Besides reclamation by menus of nrtosian wGllg there nro eoino living streams thot hnvo been utilized, so that Algeria has 17.000,000 acres under irri gation, on which not only mo all the cereals produced, but grapes, olives, dates and tobacco nro all leading crops. In addition to annual crops, not less that 6,000,000 acres havo been planted with forest trees'. Where forests are planted nnd thrive, thero cnu bo no desert. This system of agriculture, it is expected, will bo extended until a greater part of tho 150,000 equaro miles formerly classed ns desert, will havo been turned into fruitful fields. Years ago thoro were many specula tions ns to tho feasibility of Hooding tho Desert of Sahara ond creating thero a great inland Een. Hut the French ag riculturists have found better uso for so much of it as is under their control. A few years ago Cardinal Lavigera pro posed a plan for making conquests in the Desort of Sahara outsido of Algeria. Stations wero to bo established at suit able points where water could bo found. Tho desert was to bo reclaimed in spots. Having created fruitful fields nnd or chards in ono place, a colony was to bo sent forward to found another station. In this way a chain of ngrirulturn posts was to bo extended across the desert. These would have a religious character. But tho agricultjral system would do much to break up the slave caravans and bring tho whole country into n condition to support a large civi lized population. Very littlo is heard, of late years, about this experiment. Tho establishment of a singlo station might require years, nnd would at first attract littlo attention. Hut nlrendy tho greatest agricultural triumph of the ago is foreshadowed in the prospective reclamation of tho vast part of tho desort which is within tho dominion of Algiers. Tito experiments which havo been prosecuted on tho desort lunds of this country nro not unlike those already noted. Water has turned BOino nrid wasteB into fruitful fields. On tho Colo rado Desert tho progress has been slow. Rut water has been brought to tho sur face from various depths by boring, and extraordinary fertility has followed. Dates, olives, grapes, melons and every fruit known in semi-tropical climates, take kindly to tho soil. Tho few suc cessful experiments go far to sustain the theory that by tho uo of water thero will yet be thousands of gardens nnd fruitful fields whero thero is now only aridity and barrenness. Agriculture has already established the fact that with sufficient water nearly all desert lauds can bo restored to fertility. a hkm'-.maim: ,11 an. When Horace Greeley was in his prime ho was counted among tho popu lar lecturers of his time. Ho was the very least of orators, but tho people weto nttrncted by the meat and pith of his practical, common-sense, terse say ings. His pet lecture was on "Self made and School-made Men;" and in the treatment of this subject ho de lighted to contrast such characters as Daniel Boone and Kdward Everett, leaving the hearer to discover tho deli cnto intimation that tho lecturer him self was a triumphant example of auto matic construction. After having exalted the self-made above the school-mado man, it was something of n joke on Greeley that, in selecting Whitelaw Keid to become tho head of tho great metropolitan news paper tin had established, ho should havo bestowed a deserving responsibil ity oil ono who was both school-made and self-inndo. The fact is tho school enabled Whitelaw Keid to make him self, so that he was the embodiment of both tho elements which Greeley hnd set in-opposition. Ho was early thrown upon his own resources, and it was self reliance united to great energy and pluck that carried him through the Miami university, n small institution in southern Ohio, which'haB given to tho country many prominent men, among whom nro Professor Swing and Presi dent Harrison. Equipped with 11 fair ruiiiiuoulary education, Keid went ntraight forth to carvo his own career. Under 2J, he was n stump speaker in Fremont's campaign of 1S50; then school teaiiicr, repaying his father for tho exponse of his college education, and Having a small capital; then pro prietor of the Xvniu AVir, which gnvo him Uoiiil1i.'ui leaders-hip in central Ohio; afterwards correspondent at Col milium of tho CIncinnnti Timet, with a salary of to a week, when his brilliant articles brought him a similar connect ion with the Cleveland Herald nt $15 a wook. Tho Cincinnati Gazelle now dis covered him mid laid bold of his ser vices at $18 a week. Tho next step in advance w.h tij become city editor of tho dazetk.' On the breaking out of war While law Hied joined McOlellan's stuff as cor respondent mid acquired a wide fame for letters, extensively copied', over the sobriquet "Agate " Personally, Mr. Koid is over m feet tall, proportionately clout, and of com manding, rather striking nppuar.tuci'. His self-made Mioei'fn is not only a wortiiy object of youthful emulation, hut furnishes h timely lesson to those who aro-coutiuualiy harping on the one Hr.iiii tlia. Arizona mv-ds an immigra '.ion of people, with monoy alone. Mono indeed we must have, but we need men nervy, thrilty, energetic men mote, dnch men were all th far-famed Cali fornia millionaires. hucb. men will make money, but money cannot mak6 such limn. On tho coutrary, men who hug thoir money-bags, and nro willing to apply their wealth to the develop ment of tho country nnd its induttries, aro of much less value to us than nro those who havo tho talent, tnet, in dustry and sagacity to dig money from the soil and galvanize their Bitrround- ings into gold. "A living dog is bolter than a dend lion." 1)11. PAItKIIIJUSTVS Jt)MIIINi;i I'OKS. Tho Rev. Dr. Parkhurst. whoso well meant efforts to find out just how much wickedness exists in Now York, lend him into places of the vilest repute und mado him n witness of scenes so worso than bestial that tho secular press, not usually ovor-uiodest, daro not describe them, is confronted by four quite diflVr ont but equally unforgiving enemies tho city authorities, society, his breth ren of the clergy and the vicious classes whom ho has exposed. The authorities naturally feel injured becnuso a result of Dr. Parkhurst's visit'! proves that they have been disgracefully remiss. Society is displeased becatifo thocour gcous Dr. Parkhitrst has removed it dirty cloth and shown it a hideous and sickoning bloody bore. Tho clergy he cause tho methods employed havo been out of tho common, as duelists mid physicians say, not according to the code. Tho keepers ol the dens exposed nro malevolont, not becausotho exposure has been made, but because tho authori ties wero compelled by tho persistent reverend gentleman to annoy them. Hattio Adams, the vilest of the vilo, threatens to swear that Dr. Purkhurst sat calmly by and witnessed a nameless performance in her house and that it was paid for by the agent of the society for the suppression of vice who accom panied him. ' Tlio district attorney tlneatens that sho shall be given uu opportunity to an noy tho doctor by dwelling ujioti the de tails of the scene in open court. . Ono thing ia cortain, while tho wis dom of Dr. Parkliurst's method is de batable, there can be. no doubt of his honesty of purpose or of the fact thnt its fulfillment has been followed by beneficial results'. The apathy of tho police and state authorities had become notorious and Dr. Parkhurst endeavored to fully nc quaint himf-elf with the condition of af fairs that his fulminntloiiH against .vice and police collusion might he intelligent nt least to himself. Ho told a sicken ing story, but it was true, nnd had the client of compelling action and closing certnin of the notorious resorts. The arrows ho aimed wero not padded nor did they fly nt random, ns had become the fashion of the Now York clergymen in their battles with municipal wicked ness. Each dart entered deep into the object aimed at aud quivered painfully. His warfare was unrelenting und effect ive. Whatever may bo tho outcomo of tho din tho doctor lias brought nbout his ears, ho and his friends will have the consolation of knowing that ho has ac complished morn in having closed a single house of ill fuino and hnving spurred the unwilling authorities into action than nil the blind nnd general ministerial attacks thnt havo been made against social and official sin in New York within the last half century. Ho may be driven from hid pulpit, in which event the masses will believe that ho ia 111010 earnest nnd painstaking in the cause of virtue nnd morality than the church desired. ItKl'UIIMCAN M.W.JIONV. The action of the Republican 'eiigiiu convention yesterday in electing the ontire roll of olliccrs and list of dele gates by ucchimntion shows that an era of peace and good will exists in the Republican parly of Arizona. A dispo sition on the part of nil tho delegates to mako good natured concessions in the interest of harmony is evidence that it Is possible for the Republican party to present a solid front to tho common enemy this fall, and bv united action place Arizona in the Republican col umn, which its commercial importance nnd the energy, thrift, intelligence and enterprise of its people demand. The Democratic majority in tho ter ritory is bo small that it can bo entirely wiped out by a united nnd harmonious eirort on tho part of tlin Republicans, and tho convention yesterday presages BiH'h n result. The Republicans of tho territory havo in the past exhibited a good deal of ability n3 fighters in their onslaughts upon each other, nnd if they will now turn their batteries upon the common foo they will eurn tho gratitude of tho party ah a w hole and the people of what is dt-Htinod to be 0110 of the greatest commonwealths in the sisterhood of states. Republicanism is a synonym for progress nnd jirospority, and with Ari zona safely Republican immigration will pour into our bordera until every nvnilablo foot of laud is occupied. It is therefore n duty which the Republicans owo to each other and to tho people, to let by-goncs bo by-goncs and mako a grand, glorious shoulder to shoulder fight for a common causo and tho com mon good. This paper has heretofore admonished the Republicans of tho territory to get together, "let the dead past bury its dead," cluso up tho ranks of discord, and present u solid Republican pha lanx, and it again repeats this ndvico. It ia tho duty ol every Republican to work vigorously and earnestly for party success, and the harmony which seemed to prevail in ycstcidny'a convention in evidence that tho Republicans gener ally begin to realize this responsibility. United action or. tho part of Repub licans means tho utter defeat nnd repu diation of Democracy this fall. FKttlS 111MUNU TWINJ:. The McKinley bill removed all rlntien on binding twino materials and about four-fifths of tho duty on tho finished article. In this respect the Republican measure gave nioro than doublo tho tarifT reduction offered by tho Mills bill. Tho remaining remnant of tho twino duty has become tho subject of loud demonstration by tho Democratic congressional majority and finally has been voted out of oxistenco witli a nour ish of trumpets. Tho sovon-tonths of ono cent duty por pound now remaining on twino is bucIi ?. tiilio as scarcely to bo worth tho dig nity of n separate) bill, Tho Democratic uproar over this insignificant remnant of tariff duty is a sample of tho diminu tive courage nnd conviction of the pres ent Democratic congress in tho fulfill ment of its swooping campaign pledges. Inasmuch, however, as tho twine business appears to bo within the con trol of a trust, Tan Rbi'viiucan has taken tho position that whatever of tariff protection remains on twine, however alight, should bo removed. Two years ago tho Republican senators of the northwest voted to removo tho duty on binder twine, nnd it is probable that they will do so again. Tho Republican party has removed about nine-tenths of tho protective du ties enjoyed by tho sugar trust, and four-fifths of tho duties enjoyed by ho twine IrusT. Tho sugar and twine com binations appear to bo still pushing their schemes to strninrlu competition and increaso prices. Tho authorities, under the provisions of tho Republican anti-trust law, aro now engaged on thef.0 cases. Meantime, the removal of tho remnants of duty on twine and sugar may assist in bringing said concerns to their senses. Tho removal of tho sugar duties may not bo in line with tho political philoso phy of Grover Cleveland, who considers the rovenue on sugar necessary to tho Democratic tariff for rcvonuo policy; and tho annihilation of the twino octo pus may bo gall mid wormwood to tho nllinucoollicials who draw commissions for organizing alliance branch stores for the octopus. Tho nlllanco or gan, tho Urtat Weal, may also object for fear it may lose its weekly double col umn advertisement. Nevertheless, tho masses of the people will approve tho Republican position. TiiK oitKiVT i'kuit msir. Tho salley of tho Salt liver has been celebrated for years ns tho fruit belt of tho southwest, and the fact will' be readily conceded by nil who hnvo had experience in tho matter, that tho fruits of this district aru superior in flavor to those produced nnywhero else in the country. But tho disadvantage under which tho district has lnbored, up to a very few years ago, has been in the fact that only inferior varieties of fruits wero cultivated here. Tho people of Ari zona, cut oil ns they were from com munication with tho rest of the coun try, and almost completely isolated from the world, had not tho advantage of tho progress that had been mado in fruit culture as well as in everything else, during the last decade, nnd coqscquently when the railroad peno trated this region nnd tho American immigrant came in, he found tho stand ard of horticulture in the territory n uo 111 1110 samo ns nan iiecu with our forefathers a century ago. Tho bet ter varieties of fruits wero then soon introduced, and the new orchards are only just beginning to hear, but tho small quantity of improved fruit that has already boon sent nbroad has been sulliclent to show tho favor with which it is received, and to remove all doubt of the fact that n fow years hence, when the fruits of this valley becomo known to the public they will not rank second in the markets of the world to thoso of any other district of the American con tinent. Thero nro thoimnda of acres conven ient to Phienix still to be purchased nt comparatively low prices, which are fully as well adapted to this purpose as any that havo yot been utilized, and which only require planting und culti vating to make them as valuable as anv in tho country. Thero is no opening for n man of moderate capital, in any port of tho country, thnt promises a bet ter return than a fruit farm in tho Salt River valley. SMALL UAKIM.N TKUGK. Froui tho supposed nflluence of real estato agencies, Insurance, or loafers on our street corners, it mny be considered by somo to bo qtiito n fall from such ptotnincnt social and financial heights to suggest truck farming as a means of livelihood, but Tins Replmilican not only suggests it, but earnestly urges it us ono of tho most profltnblo and cer tainly honorable occupations thnt could engage the attention of many of our people who do not now have enough to do to keep away- the blues. To illustrato tho importance of thie industry in Los Angeles, California, we may take tho statement made by K. W. Wade, general manager of tho Santa Fe interests in Southern California, that he has just placed an order at eastern headquarters to send out 700 cars to handle tlio potato crop of 1ms Angeles, and tho further statement Hint l.GOO cars of vegetables havo been sent east from Los Angeles this senson. This is comparatively a new field for Industrial enterprise, nnd nnd that the railroads are aiding nil in their power by making tho exceptionally low rate of ninetv cents a li und red. It is wortli careful consideration by many people who ought to bo pleased to get an im mediate income from this Eourco while they nro waiting for their fruit orcllarda to come into bearing. ' TIIK I'ltTUKK. Within twelve months the Btcnm whistle will echo through the moun tains between l'hamix aud Prescott, and we may look forward to that time, as tho beginning of an era of prosperity never beforo -known in tho United States except in the magic growth of tlm great northwpst. Do all Arizoninus even, appreciate the importance of the district that will thus bo opened up to tho world? Ono of tho richest mining belta in the southwest, will bo laid opon to tho in- veptment of capital. The vast forests of the Ran Francisco, will supply us with lumber nt one-third tho cost wo nro now paying und nt tho same tlmo bo opening Arizona industries. And wo can ship our grain, hay nnd fruits to our noighbors of tho north a distanco of 200 miles, whereas, now it has to travel 1,000. Till! 1M11HT NKWBI'Al'KU IN AKIZON'A "Tho Santa Rita Company" was formed by Charles D. Postou in Cincin nati, Ohio, in 1850, for tho purpose of working the supposed rich mines in the Santa Ritn mountains east of Tubac. which was tho headquarters of several companies. "Tho Santa Rita Company" had a cash capital of $160,000 to stnrt with, nnd camo across the plains with a train of wagons and fifty men. Among tho outfit was a hand presson which "The Arizonian" was published at Tubac 1857 1858 "Sic transit gloria mundo." O. D. P. "PitiVATS owNKitsiiii' in land is the nether mill stone," says Henry George, tho political beau ideal of tho Demo cratic congiessmon : God made the land; it ia His bounty to tho human inco. Where does any man, or sot of men, got the right to parcel out and sell this heritage of our Heavenly Father to all tho children alike? Ono of Henry George's critics replies thnt God mado gold and iron ns well as land. What right has any ono to sell gold or iron? God mado the cattlo on a thousand hills. What right has the farmer to sell an ox? Henry Gcorgeiam in land is akin to freo love in affections. They nro born of the same spirit. They tend to tho samo ond. As long ns men nnd women plight troth for better or worso until death do them part, so long there will bo prido of ownership. Am. ritECtuKKTM have been violated in Kansas by the choice of John James Ingalls as head of the Republican dele gallon to Minneapolis. Heretofore the rule in Kansas Republican politics lias been "out of sight and out of mind.' To be defeated for the office of United States senator haa been considered the knell of political death. Mr. Ingalls presents tho first instance of resurrec tion. He has risen from the obscurity to which nil his predecessors in defeat were consigned, and for a few brie hours will shine in a great National gathering like tho morning star in the front of day. It may well be believed that tho astrologers and soothsayers are troubled by this portent. 1111: riiotu'ecTH run the Democrats to win in the election next fall aro be coming moro flimsy daily. Everything they do proves a boomerang to their faith and tho probability la that by the time of tho election they will not be nblo to, show a lighting opposition First they backed down from their posi tion on tint tariff question, and showed the white feather by failing to follow tho leadership of men who advocated Free Trade, neither would they come out in favor of protection. On the silver question they modo the samo blunder, and between their mis takes and the fallacy of their doctrines it seems that their liopes are completely swamped. The pant kkw weeks lully demon strate the fact that Arizona's climate is not all hot, and thnt wo havo prettier weather hem than any where else in the world. People who have visited Italy say that the glory of its sunsets, and the beauty of its evenings cannot in anyway exl-ell those wo havo been enjoying for some time pact. Even thoto who would hold out against nnylhing good in this country have been compelled to give in and acknowledge that there is no more pleasant place to live than in the val leys of tho fcalt end Gila rivere. Tiik cattlkmkn's feud in tho state of Wyoming that has so far resulted in n good deal of bloodshed will likely ter minate in a number of judicial iinng ings. There is one way and only one way to mako these refractory people, no matter in what of the country tliev aro, respect the law, and that is to bring it down on thsin with its full weitrht. Thero is n peaceful way to set tle nil such difficulties without terror izing the entire country nnd they should be forced to resort to it. Tiik Fox-IlomtowK affair has excited a great deal of comment and attention. Ono renson is that it develops a scandals pi high life where littlo inconsistenciesr lire uetially concealed, nnd nnother ia thnt tho Americans concerned in it have acted so as to put their Nationality in a very bad light both for courage ami hon or. The participants liavo mado them selves objects of supreme contempt nnd doubtless thero nre innny American who would liko to alan their faces lo their cowardice. This m most emphatically the age of abor-saving devices. The latest is n patent dice-shaking machine, operated by simply pressing a button. The n paratus should bo fitted with an attach ment for ringing up nnd registering tho numbers thrown so that patrons of tho bar who desire to "shako for ono more" after blindness lias set in, may do bo. As tho game ia now played many n man ia obliged to stop short in the midst of his iileasuro becauso of inability to eeo the Bpots. Hon. J. B. Woodward was eleeted secretary of the Republican territorial leaguo by acclamation, an ofilco that bo is especially qualified to fill. Ho brings to tho position n ripo experience in politics and a knowlodgo of political affairs in Arizona that will ho particu larly useful in tho coming campaign. The convention did 11 wlsu tiling In making Mr. Woodward socretary of the territorial league. The next Senate will go to to the par ty carrying the presidency. This is not tho order of things always, but it un doubtedly will be this year. The Re publican lead in the senate is small, and a reverse at the polls for the presi dency would sweep nwny this lead. A good deal depends on the coming elec tion. This is not a good time for either apathy or ovcrconfidenco on tho part of Republicans. NuMUKit onb, volume ono of the Jitwr tide llejltx, comes to this office in size nnd style of the San Francisco Arganaut. J. P. lSnumgiutner is editor nnd W. C. Hogabooin associato editor. Mr. Hoga boom is n rising young humorist of the const und n bright all-around writer. The lltjkx ia a creditable paper both in contents and mechanical appearance, and deserves a liberal patronage. Tun election of lion. Bou Honey as president of the Republican territorial league ia a compliment to -fin earnest Republican nnd worthy young man. He haa tho reputation of being ono of the best political organizers in Pima county tho mother of Arizona poli ticiansand will go into the fight with tho ardor of youth and a determination lo win. Mn. Watthusok declares that tho nomination of Cleveland would be sui cidal, because he "would lose New York as surely and disastrously us tt waa lost by Judge Folger, when 100,000 Repub licans staid away from the polls." It will bo funny to see the mercurial Louis ville editor repudiate this assertion a few weeks hence. Iioimowi:, whose blood nnd valor have been fired by his success in puncturing Fox's coat tail.

YicToitiA Woopiiuli, BimiuLrii-MAii-tin has opened her campaign with a libel suit ngainst the Chicago Mail. If Mis. Martin had consulted one or two eminent politician they would have convinced her that a libel suit is the very poorest sort of campaign ammuni tion. The recoil is worse than tho dis charge. The place to hnv? fun is the Demo cratic convention nt Tucson next Mon day. Next to 11 KilKennv cat fight it will be entertaining. Between L. C. Hughs, Tom Fnrrisli and A. C. Baker, things nro going to lie lively. Who will go to their convention is an open ques tion, though really it is time wasted for any of them to go for when the fall election comes thov won't bo in it. The rooitoi.D Iferald inuy prate as much about "today's news aro in the Herald" us it pleases, but the fact is that It is nlwaya about three months behind hand. The fourth daily paper which it referred to last night ns about to bo started win discussed fully three months ago, and abandoned by the pro jectors ns impracticable. It is a iiiuii tiibute to President Har rison, ns Gen. Hawley remarks, that in all of his numerous speeches he has never uttered a phrnsa that could be used to the disadvantage of his party or himself. Tho difference between him and Cleveland in that reBpcct is par ticularly striking, by the way. In view of the fact that the Alliance is more likely to carry Democratic than Republican nates its chances for throw ing the election of pretident into the house nro not favorable. However, neither of tho big parties is bothering itself about tho Alliance this year.
