i noune learns that the principal pur
chaser was Stephen B. Hlkins. It is cleai
that the campaign of education is mak
ing progress among the republicans and
that Col. Hlkins is an apt pupil. He has
found out by careful observation thai

poweriul with the present Auministra
tion than the man who can buy votes
Look at John C. New, of Indiana, nnd

Another Scheme for Blair.
That fearful and wonderful statesman
Senator Blair, of New Hampshire, liegins
his career this session by proposing an
amendment to the constitution which
shall give the District of Columbia a sen
ator and a representative in Congress
and as many electors tor President ano
vice-President as it has meniliers of Con
cress." He should devote the whole ses
sion to this work ; it would lie less costl
than tempering the waters of Hudson
Bay with the Gulf Stream, or distribn
ting treasury funds in dependent pension
and southern educational schemes.

Some time ago Clay Morris found

A I'Heful Example.
The Charlotte Chronicle savs:
Patrick Crow was arraigned for lag

why the prisoner should not work for
his living. A fine of $5 was imposed on
Crow, but as he could not put up the
cash, he was sent to the chain-gang to
work it out. That means twenty day's
labor on the county roads.
