She was utterly opposed to the movement which culminated in her husband's nomi nation to the vice presidency. She b gged of him not to accept it. She al ways disliked the official life of Washing ton and heartily loved her peaceful and pleasant home in Columbus, and it is safe to say that if the old Roman could have honorably refused to respond to his par ty's call he would have listened to his wife and done so. As it is, the Columbus papers say that Mrs. Thurman is sincere ly rejoiced that she and her husband, ir tneir serene old age, will be left to the calmness and happiness of their own quiet home. It is very sad to reflect that as a sen er il thing the campaign orator is one of the least reliable mortals in this world.

The success of the republicans at the presidential election restores the admin tstration of the government to harpies that were thrust out four years ago. There will be no reduction of the surplus federal taxes for two years to come, a! though there may be a pretense of revis ing the tariff. The rings that infest the lobbies of congress and the trusts an comomes that Oleed the people by "cor nering their products, will have full sway at Washington. The people have decided in their favor and the republican party will construe the popular decision to mean high taiation and lavish expen diture. The careful, honest and econo mical administration of President Cleve land has been disappointed by the verdict at the polls and the incoming administra tion will have every reason to be profligate and corrupt In its handling of the public moneys. Besides, the managers of Har rison s canvass are men who despise the reforms introduced by President Cleve land and they must be recognized by the new administration or the republican party will lose their invaluable services It is hard for those who believed that th.2 continuance of the democratic party in the control of the government was necessary to the accomplishment of the great reforms begun by President Cleve land, to accept the decision of the peopl in favor of corrupt -and unscrupulous political leaden-hip, hut it is not at all uniiKeiy mat what seems to be a severe blow to correct principlt-s and honest government will recc.il upon those who give it in such a way as to cause the speedy and final destruction of the repub lican administration as will eventually result in the dissolution of the political organization which brought it into exis tence. On the contrary, if Harrison should imitate 'he example of Cleveland, while he would have the support and en couragement of the best men of all par ties, he would utterly disappoint the re publican place hunters and boodle poli ticians and he and his party would in all probability meet the fate that has just overtaken President Cleveland and the democracy for their fidelity to the inter ests of an ungrateful people. Xo administration dominated by the influences which secured the election of Harrison will be tolerated by the intelli gence and decency of the country. No republican administration which will re fuse to be dominated by those influences will be tolerated hy the republican poli ticians. Harrison, thertfore,will take up the reins of power to drive the republi can machine upon one of two courses either of which leads to the disruption and demoralization of his party. There is no middle ground between integrity and profligacy. EDOINGTON. EDorjiOTON, Nov. 20. Miss Carrie Steitz and her mother re turned from Rock Island today, having oeen there on a visit since Saturday. Our school directors are on the look o ut for a good man teacher, to take the place of A. W. Smith, for the fall and winter term. The dance of Friday evening laat was a pleasant affair. Mr. Stoddard has Kiven the next one out for the evening of uec. 14. Mr. Fred Lowe is seriously ill, and his recovery is pronounced doubtful by Urs. Armstrong and Houghton, who are at tending him. Mrs. David Fountain is suffering from the breaking out of a diseased foot,caused by being thrown from a buggy some years ago. Mr. and Mrs. iidward Simmons, the recently much-married couple of this place, are going up towards Milan to keep uuuae ior oaui opencer this winter. It was reported here vesterdav that A W. Smith had returned to Andalusia, but It is contradicted by Dr. Robinson todav. who says that when Smith turrs up it wiu ue wuu ois toes toward the skies.

There Is Some Objection to the Keeent BUId Order or tbe Rock Island Ruad Regarding the Baguette Bhlrldo. Apropos of the recent orders from Gen. Superintendent Royce, of the C, R. I. & P., regsrding the regulation of time pieces used by engineers, conduc tors, train dispatchers, etc., and the com pulsory provision for magnetie shields in all weather carried by such employes of the company, the results of an attempt to compel the use of the shield among the switch engineers of the C, & N. W. may be intr. ttine. The attemnt there to make such exactions is meeting with great opposition. An exchange says: In response to notices from the assis tant superintendent of power and ma chinery, a number of the fortv switch en gineers employed by the road in Chicago nave sent in a protest against the compul sory use or the shield. They say they have used their present watches for years. and can work by them as effectually as ever. These watches, they claim, will not me t the rmuirements of the rule ordering the use nf the st.ield, and would have to be replaced by new. They ob jeel to being put to the expense of i change. "The pay we receive for our labor barely allows us to live decently and pay our honest debts, the protest reads. Another motive of ihe engioeers for objecting to the use of the shield arises from the methods origiually employed to introduce it. Two years ago, the story is, the owners of the patent circulated the statement that the steel and iron of en gines prevented an ordinary watch trom keeping correct time, and that protection from magnetic and electric influences could be had onlv by the use of one of their anti-magnetic shields. The fitm was believed to have followed this up by distributing ?5,00O among certain mem bers of Division No 9t, of the Brother hood of Locomotive Engineers to secure their influence in introducing the shield. The Engineers' convention in 1887 condemned the action of these members. By some means, it is said, those interested in the shield afterward obtained the letter heads of the organiza tion, to which the names of John Wan del, chief engineer, and Oliver Lone, as sistant, were signed in blank. Filled in with recommendations of the patent, these letter heads were mailed to eogi neers. Wandel and Long were suspend ed from the brotherhood for ten months. Although the shield is now generally in use among the road engineers, the switch engineers who have not procured them are inclined to make these expos ures another reason for not adopting the appliance. So strong is their feeling on the subject that it is said they will strike before submitting. THE ROCK ISLAND ROUTE. Capt. Marshall's Duly a, to the Hra. nepln Canal Snrves'. "My duty is not to make any survey as to the Hennepin canal'' said Capt. Mar. shall, of the army board of engineers, described in yesterday's Arous, this morning. "I have simply to draw the plans and map of the survey of the Rock Island route for the Hennepin canal, that being the one adopted by the secretary of war." The route of the canal has been fixed with the terminus at the mouth of Rock river, and the survey made. Capt. Mar shall is instructed to make a draft of this survey, and he is with Maj.

Mr, Halford, who is about 45 years of age, came from England with his parents when a child. The family lived first in Cincinnati, then in Hamilton, and before the war they came to tbis city. Mr. Halford began life as a printer's apprentice, and his success bas been achieved by industry, quick mtelHKnce and keen observatioii oi events. During the war he was a reporter, and afterwards city E iitor of The Journal. He then pissed to the managing editor's place of that paper, bat laft it to at-cept the same position on The Chicio Inter Ocean, when John Y. Scammon established that paper. He returned as managing editor of Tne Indianapolis Journal in lSsi, and had held the position ever since. He was also for a time the private secretary of Senator Morton.

Other reasons givwn for his ap pointment are that he was in Uen.

It is now said that Burrows has been conducting a still bunt for the place for several months, and has a long start on his rival in the contest.

D., president of Kenyon college, Uamuier, Ohio, read the first paper on tbe topic. President Potter, of Hobart college, read tbe next paper and Rev. Arthur Brooks, of the Church of the Incarnation, New York, opened the discussion upon the papers read. He vigorously attacked tbe close corporation idea. He denounced in strong terms the idea of endowing and building up small see tarian colleges at tbe expense of such mag nificent institutions as the leading non-sec tarian colleges of the country. Rev. Mr, fcprague, of Trinity church, Charlestown, Mass., was also a believer in liberty, and followed Mr. Brooks in tbe same strain. Rev. Mr. Hughes, of Mornstown, N. J., followed with an argument in favor of church colleges, which be said should be de veloped m every possible way. Tbe congress is only a deliberative body and bas no legislative powers. It is merely a meetiug at which men who have any thing to say can say it ; they bind no one nor any section of churchmen by their utter ances. DRIVEN FROM THEIR HOMES.

Albany, N. Y., Nov. 22. The New York factory inspector was called upon recently by tbe Ohio inspector for assistance in fer reting out tbe participants in an arrange ment by which children were sent from a Brooklyn, N. Y.. orphan asylum to Fostoria and Findlay, O., to work in the glas fac tories in those places. As a result tne fol lowing letter has been sent to Hon. Henry Dorn, chief Inspector at Columbus, O., by Assistant inspector Franey: Your communicati-m eoocerakig the importa tion of orphan children from Brooklyn to Fostoria and Findiay, there to work in glass fac- torifs, wan duly received and its subject matter reterml to Deputy factory Inspector Jordan, ot Brooklyn. After carefully imetis:ating h writes to me as follows, under date of the J0th insr.: "On the Sith day of September, there were sent from St. John's home, the asylum on the corner of Albany street and St. Mark's avenue, thirty-one boys to Fostoria, to work in a glass tactory there, of which Mr. Dalzfll is partner. There was another lot numbering thirtv to leave yesterday (the i!thl. twenty -five of whom I saw while vi .king the institution. Thev were going to Findlay, (., to work in a glass factory. 1 was assured that none of these were under 12 years or ape. Itiyare contrfu-t-tl for one year: tbe proprietors of the glass works agreeing to board and clothe them for the first six months, and dur ing the next six months they are to he paid Si per we-k each additional.

Indianapolis, Nov. 22 -Soon after the general assembly K. of L. convenM yester day morning, Litchman took the floor and denied that he hid connived with anvhody to illegally break up the Kaginaw District assembly, as 1 nomas B. Barry charges. At the time referred to hy Barry there were only four local assemblies attached to that district As Ave was the minimum number constituting a district assembly, be could not have done otherwise than revoked the char ter. After Litchman had about concluded his statement Delegate Crowell, a clerk in ! the general office at Philadelphia, cre ated a sensation bv taking tbe floor and telling a story very dif- erent from that of Litchmtn. H1 s-id that be was told to demand the return of the assembly's charter. As the order came to him there appeared to be but four locals in the district, but upon investigation he found that there were seven. This agrees itb Barrv's statement. Orowell calied the attention o( Cbief Clerk Rowland to bis dis covery, but he gave him no hed and told him to go ahead and suspend the ais -mb'y. This led to a cross tire of questions from Litchman and answers from Crowell, who made tbe delegates acquainted with some secrets concerning tbe internal affairs of the order. There was an effort to rap Crowell down, but he would not obev. The delegate became almost antHana able, and a deeu resolutions and amend ments were offered in half as many min utes. F.' ally Delegate L 'wis, master work- man of t-ie N. D. A. comprising The miners' organizition, moved that a committee of tb'-ee U npKi(it.d whose duty it should l to telegraph at once to some reputable at torney in Philadelphia, instructing him to immediately take chnrge of all the effect of tbe ordr at headquarters, including all books and pepTH, and hold the same until the invftizating committee could rach that city. TiiiS resolution was defeated. A proposition to appoint an investigating com mittee w.i carried by abno-a a two thirds majority. The committee whs in structed to make a thorough inqnirv as to the business methods that bave reva'ied at Poverty Palace, as Barry calls the order's headquarters. After this the assembly bad another long debate leiding to confusion in many resolu tions and amendments, as to the manner of selecting the committee Powderiy has that power, buttiie delegates wanted to take it away from him. and when tbe assembly ad journed the question was no nearear settle ment than when it was first broached. At the afternoon session a proposition to appoint a committee to go to Kt. Louis in December to make overtures to the Federa tion of Trades, w hich meets there on Dec. 5, for a union with the Knights, was rejected after a speech against it by Powderly, who id it looked as if tbe Knights of Labor was unable to maintain a separate organization. Tbe balance of tbe day was spent on appeal matters of utile general interest. ANARCHY NOT VERY DEAD. An Apprehensive llarher Tho Thinks It Gaining Control of Organized lbor. New York, Nov. 22.

Interesting Developments of an Official Inquiry. CHICAGO YEARNS TOR TEE EARTH So Far as the Supply of res-ul Meat J Concerned The Way She Hogged the Business, According to Statements of WitnetMetr Armour's Grip on the Traffic The Cattlemen and rtutt-hers Conven tion Banging Fire aud Wiry. St. Locis, Mo., Nov. 22. The senate com mittee investigating the cattle question held ia second session here yesterday, the first witness being J. L Brush, a cattleman of Colorado City. Mr. Brush said be had beard of a dressed beef iuterest in Chicago, but did not have personal knowledge of its ex istence. J. M. Osborne, division freight agent of the Wabash railroad, the next witness, said St. Louis dropped behind Chicago as a cattle market in lHti. Last year there was an un precedented rise of $1 per hundred on cattle. Tbe witness snid be thought it was tbe ap pointment of tbis committee that caused the rise, althou .u be might be hung by some of tbe cattle men for saying so. In there was a combination formed called tbe 'ven ers," composed of the New York Central, Erie, Pennsylvania and connections. Tbe combination was for the bent-fit of Chicago, and the rebate did not apply to St Louis or any other place. J. C. Beatty, of El Paso, Tex., a raiser, buyer and seller of cattle, testified that the firm with which he was connected put up a $75,(M0 refrieerator, hut were forced to shut it down, the railroad agent in form log them that b s obligations to Mr. Armour were such that be would not get cars for them to ship cattle out to tbe Pacific coast. Mr. Armour then began putting beef in re frigerator cars and broke the market from S1 cents to c-nts, and cattle raisers near El Paso were compelled to tbip to Kansas City at a loss. Brewster Cameron, an Arizona cattle raiser, testified that many cattle raisers were on the verge of bankruptcy. Wben cattle weut into tbe Chicago market drovers bad the privilege of looking through a hole in a fence at them. Butcbers had not a free cbance to buy. C. S. daughter, of Pallas, T-x., stock raiser and banker, bad been to Chicago and Kansas City with cattle. Hethfitigiit iisirange when be took cattle from Kansas City to Chicago that he should be ottered the same figure at tbe latter place as be had been of fered at the former, and timt the represent atives of the same firm at Chicago a the one he bad seen at Kansas City would In tbe only buyers who would look at bis cattle. Bill beads were tbe same in both cities, and uuilly Switt'sor Armour's. With reference to the cattle men's and butchers' convention, which was to bavlef-n begun here Tuesday, it seems that tbe cattle men and the butchers are not exactly in harmony, and begins to look as though the joint convention would full through. Half a dozn spectators and a brass bnnd was the contingent in tbe exposition building yester day morning. The stage, handsomely decor ated with emblems appropriate to the occa sion, was the only evidence that there was to be a cattle convention. The Range associa tion memliers declare that tbey will not meet ith the butchers unless the latter agree to abi jure all discussion of lump-jawed beef. It is openly asserted that the dressed beef men have carried the day, and that, if there a joint convention o tbe range men and bnt-htrs, it will amount tn nothing more than the reading o( papers. Tbe dressed beef representatives sent a circular to each association asking that tbe convention be called to order, and that tbey be admitted to participation in its deliberations, to have full and free discussion of the live stock uestion, with tbe oi'jt'ct in view of akinn congress to provide for a rigid inspection of II live stock on tbe boof at all of tbe large slaughtering points in the country, which would include Chicago, St. Liuis, Katies City, Omaha and New York. Tne conven tion was positioned Tuesday owing to tbe discovery made by tbe ratine men and butch ers tha. tbe dressed beef representatives had capture it, and tbey are not pleased w;tnit. The leaders, therefore, tovk time to esideavor to avoid disaster. Tbe cotii'ereuce is a remarkable one, for it ts.lbe first one where tbe di-eed br-ef in- rests bave entered into oprw;tion and shown their hnnds. They have the advant age on the q ieSLi'in of being a imiUW to the convention, tor the call was for repi-'S-nta- tire nvn in nil branches of the csme indus try. It in claimed the b"ef trust bas enough men hereto out-vote tbe oppoitum on any point. The couniixsion men are with the dressed ie--f interests. The former oppose stat1 iiispecii'jn, because it would convince the European government that American cattle were diseased, and thus sliui off ex portation, which now amounts to but (40,000 annually, while it should be at least 1,500, 000. The dressed beef men are opposed to it because tbe necessity of inspection on the hoof would imperii tbe &kl.OH0,to0 invested in the different branches of their industry. Both are in favor of national inspection, be cause it ould le a guarantee ot good health which would le accepted at home and abroad.
