A bombshell was sprung In the ranks of a section of the city council last night that upset and knocked out their calculations, and utterly threw over their piano. When Councilman, Welch got up to Introduce an ordinance that he said "related to gambling," the moral and saintly gentleman who were pre pared to Jump on tho license proposl lion with both feet, braced themselves up for the slaughter. But in a couple of momenta they sat back In their seats lind wondered where they were at. Mr. Welch Instead of bringing In the prop osition to license gambling, produced the ordinance suppressing It entirely, and completely wiping It out, making it a crime, and forbidding any form of gambling whatever to exist or be car ried on In tho city. Now for a little retrospect. Ever since the question of gambling was first mooted, Councilman Welch has bitterly opposed any pandering to the evil. He attempted on one occasion to force the council to suppress It by bringing In the very same ordinance as he read last night, and he failed signally in his purpose. Since that tlma, and purely for the reason that 11 was found abso lutely impossible to close it up alto gether, he and others have turned their attention to the licensing ques tion. During the discussion of the last few weeks The Astorlan has carefully watched the growth of public senti ment, and has noted with mingled feel lngs the sudden qualms of morality dts played by certain councillors against the Idea of a licence. These gentlemen, while storming at the new proposition, were careful to express their heartfelt cYslre that gambling should bo done away with entirely. Bo to test their honesty, to catch them out of their own mouths, and to, decide once and forever their slnccrlt or their hypocrisy, It was determined to bring them up with a round turn ond make them come out boldly for oi against total prohibition. The ordinance, us will be seen by oui report, was read a first and second' time and then Councilman McGregor moved for a suspension of the rules and a fnal reading. One vote upsets thin and Councillors Bergmar. and O'Harn called "No," in answer to their names. thus deferring the matter till next Tuesday night During the next seven days there will be a few puttied parties in the city who will devote all their energies to hunting a way out of the muddle. They are between the devil and the deep sea, and wo propose to force the position. Our stand is that it is Impossible in a otty like Astoria to carry through an ordinance totally prohibiting gambling, and wo have recognised the lntroduc tlon of heavy license as the only alter native. So let the proposed ordinance be passed and every attempt made to enforce It. The quicker It is done, the quicker the public will see the strength of our argument, and the fact that we ore right la holding licensing as the best way out of the difficulty. For the result will prove the impossibility of any better scheme for restriction of the evil. At tho next meeting of the council thanks to last night's move, we will see these men compelled to stand up boldly and prove by their official votes and actions what they mean. They For the Next Thirty Days, To meet imperative demands, I will offer at such low prices on install ments, with easy payments, that could preach morality as a cover for their acts when they thought they were safe from being put to the test. Now we will give them on opportunity to talk business. Mr. Gladstone Is fighting a great battle, and there Is no evidence of any decay in his powers. On the contrary, he never was in better form and his management of his string of factions has been in the highest style of art public life. In If he succeeds he will do something more than give home; rule to Ireland Indeed he is playing Ireland first and holding together the friends of many measures of reform that he has prom lsed, all of which have a tendency to liberalize the British government. The American people are not well served with news of the progress of the contest in the house of commons. With a sinele exception all the London cor respondents of American Journals urge the Gladstone side with the utmost favoritism. While the Gladstone forces are held well In hand, and everything the Tories and Unionists say Is ridi culed and Blathered with reckless ani mosity, the fact Is that the debate has proven the measure to have grave de fects. The organization for rebellion in Ulster is not amusing at all, but there is a grim earnestness about It. The Or angemen do not Intend to submit to a Dublin parliament, but mean to fight and, In the next general election the main question, will be whether they should be put down by British troops. Last Saturday Prince Bismarck was 78 years of age. The chances are he has not much time left until his ca reer is closed and he enters into the splendid fame that belongs to him alone, and that shall be his glory as the greatest of Germans. The royal ties are dummies beside such manhood. In the end it will be seen that Fate wus kind to Bismarck In arousing the ab surd vanity of the young emperor against him. Mexico has started up one of her re served volcanoes, that of St. Martin, so called, though why on earth any one wanta to give the name of a man of peace to such a flrey and unreliable thing as a volcano Is hard to under stand. St. Martin has been asleep for a century and Is now giving a grand ex hibition of pyrotechnics. Perhaps it is Intended as a counter attraction to our World's Fair on the par of our sister republic. The introduction of the title of am bassador into our diplomatic service will serve no good purpose, although It will unquestionably lower us a peg or two In the estimation of those Euro peans who have respected us for our turdy Independence. It will give our eprtsentatlves precedence In some of he ceremonial affairs at European enp tals, but will not .add- to their Influ .nce. Of all the queer Ideas, that of the emocrats who propose celebrating the .Irthdoy of Thomas Jefferson, the itanchest protectionist of the early Joys of our country, Is the queerest. Jefferson was about as far from being a democrat as the term is now under stood, as he could possibly get. The Kentucky colonels and Georgia majors have not yet worked up their courage to the point of starting that walking match froi.i Washington to their homes. Perhaps they are waiting for the nights to get warm enough for them to sleep out of doors without dan ger. Hoop skirts will, according to an elec trlcal expert, endanger the lives of their wearers who attempt to walk across the track of an electric rood. ThiB hint should not be lost upon young men. Mr. Cleveland's rules are like cheap watches. Sometimes they go, and sometimes they don't. Good Looks. Good looks are more than skin deep, depending on a healthy condition of all tha vital organs. If the liver be Inactive, you have a btllloua look. If vour mtomaoh be disordered, you have a dyspeptic look ana u your Kianeys d aisoraerea you have a pinched look.
