Minister Foster has agreed upon the text of a treaty with Spain which involves form of the Cuban customs laws and a mode of settlement of the claims of our citizens growing out of their losses through Cuban insurrections. Such a con templated treaty looks proper and plaus tble on its face and does not involve the surrender of twenty millions of sugar and tobacco revenue in the interest of Cuba. Mr. Foster is growing wiser as he grows older In diplomacy. If anything needs reformation it is custom house manage merit in Cuba. Canadian shippers of sugar box shooks used to complain that a customs officer at Havana or MAtanzns would do no official act without being bribed. The president and cabinet officials will all be back to thoir desks in, a tew days. Io this connection the Burlington Gazette remarks that the people have noticed that not a dollar of the public money has been used for their pleasure. No government vessel has been put in commission at enormous expense to take any member of the administration to the seaside resorts, something unheard of for twenty years. Only last year as many as three govern meat ships were sailing the sea with as many parlies of official junkcteis. And the public has good reason to remember the one which came and went at the nod of Chandler, because it went down while in bis private service and the cost of rais' ing and repairing her was taken out of the people's pocket Is not the new way better than the old? Who would have the old way again? Consul Mason reports that the most elementary principles of sanitary cleanli Des are unknown in Marseilles; that the gutters of the streets flow with filth, and that the conditions are favorable for the pread of an epidemic. Marseilles is an ancient city without antiquities. It has erne fine hotels and one magnificent drive, but the city itself is damp, filthy and crowded, with canals running through it that resemble uncovered sew en, without answering the purpose of sewers. These repeated warnings from abroad should stimulate our sanitary au thorities to increased exertions to place Rock Island outside of the class of epi demic inviting cities. Cholera may be re pelled much more easily than it can be expelled. It gets its foothold in filth Dirt breeds disease. Cleanliness is the best preventive. Perfect sanitation is the best kind of inoculation. THI REAL CATJBK. Danforth, In his last week's rehash, makes a vain attempt to prove that Mr lIcEniry'i nationality was the cause of his defeat for the position of deputy revenue collector under Hon. Maurice Kelly. This ia another of the old man's falsehoods. The democratic parly b composed largely of Irish and Irish Americana, and if nationality was at all considered, it would have been a point In his favor. But it waB not. An element of weakness in his candidacy was the late hour in which he announced himself as an applicant for the position; and then it was surmised that Danforth was cham pioning his cause, which drove men away who would otherwise gladly have sup ported him . In the short but sharp con teat that ensued before Mr. Hen ry's appointment, naught was said against Mr. McEnrij'g in integrity or pureness of character, objec tion simply being made to his reported alliance with Danforth. In justice to Mr. McEniry it is but right to add, however, that he denies the allegation, saying that the favorable comment on his candidacy in Danforth's sheet being unsolicited. On the other hand Danforth says last week that he was asked to notice bis cans didacy. Of course Mr. McEniry 's state ment is to be believed in preference to Danforth who is a notorious liar but the former should not blame democrats for giving the story credence, when Dan forth, in his boasting way, told Mr. Hen ry he was going to defeat bim. That re mark, more than anything else, secured the appointment for Henry. Mr. Mc Eniry has set a worthy example in taking his defeat good naluredly, and at some future time, no doubt, the democracy of the county will be glad to honor him with tome position of trust.

I., ays: "Hunt's Remedy for dropsy and kidney diseases, is standard remedy." MORE BLOODY SHIRT. Judge Foraker spoke at Portsmouth, O., Tuesday to the cxtentof ten columns. The speech was patterned after that of John Sherman. It was an attack upon the south. It said that the colored voter who, by the way, appears to be pretty well satisfied could not get his rights. It declaied that there was no fair voting in the south. It recalled various alleged southern ouliaces that were charged twenty years ago. It said that Mr. Cleve land was not fairly elacted. It referred with great indiguat ion to a certain change n the voting precincts of Chatham coun ty. Georgia. And yet Judge Foraker was charmingly disinterested. "I have no disposition," he said, with a sweet smile, to keep alive any sectional hatred or prejudice or bitterness. It is not, there fore, for any such purpose that I allude to this matter. I am sure I but speak the sentiments of republicans everywhere when I say that the republican party cares nothing whatever how people may vote in the south or any other place, so long as they vote, as American citizens ought everywhere to vote, according to their own free will and choice." The words are very entertaining, everything considered. In the last state election in Ohio the state was oveirun with deputy United Slates marshals, and thousands of democratic citizens were kept from the polls. Investigation proves Jthis to have been the case, and the wonder is that there was not a fight between the state and the national autiiorities whose effects upon the ballot box system would have been most disastrous. There was never a more corrupt election than the one allud cdto. One would think Judge Foraker would think of this: but, like John Slier man. he has eyes only for the alleged sins of the south. Precisely what they have to do with a state election it is difficult to see; but the Judge perhaps knows. He will certainly find out, if he doesn't. The bloody shirt speeches of John Stierman and himself ought to nuike the reelection of Governor Iloadlv a foregone conrlu- sifln. Lafatktte, lmi., Sept. 8.

About 1 o'clock Saturday afternoon he shot and killed Polk Mitahell. a t.treet-car driver, and until recently as.si-.tant chief of police.

The American Yacht Puritan leading Her British Rival, Ceneata, In the Contest The Itet Bulle tins A Oar Scene. Chicago Sept 8. The following: dis- patches have been received : Handy Hook, N. J., Sept. 7, 1:45 P. at. The yachts have started in the international race for the America's cup. The Puritan got off at 1:35 p. m., followed by the Oenesta at 1 -M: 10. The wind Is light, from the southeast 2:!) p. m. The yachts are now standing to the ea-twar 1 and are still near the light ship. The Puritan is to the windward and about a half a mile ahead. With the pres ent wind it Is note niceted that the race can be sailed much within tlie prescribed time- seven hour- or no race. :30 p. in. Both yachts are standing south we-U The Puritan is well to wind ward. The wind is very light 4 p. m. The Puritan has gained three minutes forty-live seconds so far, and is loaving the Ucnesta all the time. 4:14 p. m. Both yachts are now standing east-southeast The Puritan is a mile to the windward To-day's race is twenty miles to wind ward and return, over a course which will take the yachts from the Sandy Hook light house to the nort hwest for twenty miles and back. The buoys were fixed this morning. The second raoe on Wednesday will be from a point in the Narrows near Fort Hamilton, to the 8andy Hook light-ship and return. If the two re.oes do not decide the contest a third race will be run over a triangular course on Friday. Fools were s li on the stnamnr Kill von KuU, average prices boing $100 for the Pur itan to $) for the liunesta. ihe amount of money spant to obtain c iod views of the race was almost fabulous it being estimated J500.00U will not cover the outlay. Gen. Butler wont down to the Horseshoe on his yacht America. lhe day here is honored genorally in shipping quarters by a liberal display ot English and American nags. Many of the proprietors of excursion steamers gave out that they in tended to be on tue safe side, and that therefore they w.mld not carry tiie fall number of pas .envoi's allowed on board. Some of them may have adhered to their determination but so far as one could judge from observation most of the boats had. when they loft their piers standing room only. The races began to-lay will ive No York and its neighboring cities a lull week of aquatic excitement Tiie stir that was this morning every whre otervable was a continuation of the putilic curto-ity that be gan yesterday. Inone who count not get passage on the water gathered along shore to see as far as they comd across tue water and to be delighted by the fine display of canvas up and down the narrows. At Port Hamilton the crowd ashore was im mense. Thence each way the coast was lined with people of all social grades and conditions of life. The nocking of so many thousands to the shore aud to eligible points of view when there was nothing of an ex citing character to be saen shows how com pletely engrossed the public mind is with the aquatic event of the week. It was thirty-tare - years ago la-t August since the liitoruuliouai silver cup ihe yachtsman's priceles- treasure- was won Iroiu tue .nglL-u at loo uiyal merit jsjjuadron regatta at Lowes, England. iS.noe that time the britisuers have made nve determined elfjrts to win back the trophy and their prwtiga, but in every instance without avail. It is four years since the cup was contended for by any foreign yaotit, ana the contest then was of I ttle interest, for the Canadian yacht Alatauta proved a most Ulterior craft Hut this week's races possess a deep interest lor It is acknowledged that the Oenesta is one oi tue iastest yachts that ever flew the British colors. The challenge was tamed nearly a year ago, and the IMc York Yacht club, recognizing that it would not do to tru-t the cup to any yacht in their squadron, resolved to build one, and at the same time issued an invitution to any other olub to do the same and enter her in the pre liminary racea for the honor of competing with the Genesta. The Eastern Yacht club, of Boston, took up tlie invitation, and in course of time two niagniticAut craft were added to the record of American yachts; one, the Priscilla, belonging to the Kew xorkers. the otm-r, tne ruritau, being the property of the Hostoniaus. - in triu races between the rivals recently took place. The Puritan, to tiie joy of her sponsors and the chagrin of the Itew York ers, won two races out of tho three, and the international race committee of the Kew York club were compelled, very sorely against their will, to select her to meet the Oenesta. The contest however, has a much wider significance than a mere friendly contest between two nations. Ail previous efforts of British yachts to recapture the prize have been somewnat in tne nature ot anticipated conclusions But the Oenesta is built upon a new model and in accordance witn new prm ciples of nautical science, and represents the moat ad vaneed'principlos of British modellns The English are eager to demonstrate to the world that they are masters of the wind a that they have at least solved tbe problem of the create --t speed under the broadest canvas. Modelers and builders are watch ing the contest with nnusual interest and the pride and prejudice of two nations are aroused. The final outcome of the race ia awaited with intense anxiety.

The boat In which they left belongs to a man named Fernaux, aud was found Saturday on the beach at the foot of Sixty-third street, right side up and half full ot water. There are lots of theories as to what may have become of the miss ing two, but there are no facta to go by. Mr. O'Rourke was stopping at the Sherman home, and his things are still there; also mail from St Louis since ar rived. The idea of an elopement ia scouted by Mr. Lamed.

Mr. David t'layjiool, formerly fcHT-jcant-at-Amisnflhe New Jersey Senate, ami now Notary Public at Cedarville, Cumberland Co., N. J., makes the following startling statement: "My father, mother, and three sisters all died with consumption, and my lungswereso weak I raise! blood. Nobody thought I could live. My work (ship snmhingVas very straining on me with my weak constitution, and i was rapidly going to the grave. While in this condition 1 commenced using Mishler's Herb Bitters, and it saved my life. lieeause it was so difficult to get it in this little place, and I had improved so much, I stopped taking it for a time, and the result is that I have commenced going rapidly down hill again. Somehow, Mishler's Herb Hitters gives apjetite and strengthens and builds me up as nothing else does, and 1 must have a dozen l-ottles at once. Use this commu nication as you please, and if any one wants to be convinced of its truth, let them write me and 1 will make afiidavit to it, for I owe my life to Mishler's Herb Hitters." . The secret of the almost invariable relief and cure of consumption, dysentery, diar rhoea, dysjx'psia, indigestion, kidney and liver complaints, when Mishler's Herb Hitters is used, is that it contains simple, harmless, and yet powerful ingredients, that act on the blood, kidneys, and liver, and through them strengthens and invigor ates the whole system.
