In resigning from the premiership, Gladstone has the satisfaction of know ing that his successor, Lord Rosebery, will be able to work In harmony with the statesmen who will serve under him, and the pleasure of the' masses at the Grand Old Man's refusal to accept a peerage Is an added source of gratifica tion. Gladstone was long ago referred to In a derisive manner as "the peo ple's William," and he still prefers the title of commoner. Although he refuses so steadfastly to accept the honor which has so frequently been offered him, he has made over a hundred peers, ( and In almost every case the most liberal among them, have become narrow and Illiberal In the peers' cham ber, distrusting all popular movements and prone to strangle progress. Having climbed to success themselves, they want to arrest the onward movement of society. Some of Mr. Gladstone's most bitter opponents are the backslid ing whigs who sat with him in former cabinets. Only one peer In ten pro fesses to be a liberal, and not more than a third of these are stanch and trustworthy. ,. PrendergasU the murderer of Mayor Harrison, Is to be hanged on the 23d Instant, provided his lawyer does not devise some new project for staving off the day of retribution. The dastardly deed for which this rattle-brained Indi vidual Is to suffer was committed last October. Six months la a long time for the courts to occupy In meting out Jus tice In a case so absolutely clear as that against Prendergast If there Is any re straining Influence caused by the Inflic tion of the death penalty, this Influence Is strengthened by making punishment follow the commission of the crime as promptly as a due regard for Justice will permit. The French are a remarkable people. Having lost lots of money by the Pan ama canal swindle, they are now laugh Ing over a play entitled "Journee Parle mentalre," which Is represented ns a causUo satire on this monumental nine-jrtut teenth century fraud. If this Is not enough to establish the claim that the French are a remarkable people, addi tional evidence is found In another bit of dromatlo gossip which comes from Paris to the effect that at the debut of an Indifferent actreM. the audience manifested their sentiments by whist ling, cat-calls and throwing cabbage, fish, dead rabbits and eggs upon the tae. That excellent reserve force, the na val militia. Is becoming more and more i:;uUr. Two more states. orsia nA '..'"imevtleut, have recently ptovhlcd fr nnv.i.nM 0e ,iMi.tf,iMHitlM. Tuunk i UVe this 8..-rvt-e. and they quickly efficient. A large proportion ' rn f.n our men-of-war mo fr-i elgners, and the formation of a force of young men thoroughly Imbued with the American splHt, and their Instruction for duty on board ship. Is one of the heni moves ever made by our naval au thorities. In eas of war IIiIh body of patriotic and wide-awake young men will be heard from. , An alleged American orchestra, which refused to play "God Save the Queen" In Montreal, Is commended by a contem porary. It may well be usked, however, why they ventured into the queen's do minions If they didn't mean to he po lite? We should take it very 111 of a Canadian orchestra that should come here and refuse to play "The Star Span gled Banner" or "Hall Columbia." Pa triotism Is all right, but it must not be confounded with boorlshness. A bomb is said to have been found at the door of a Juror In Paris who found a verdict according to the facts in the case of a bomb-thrower. ' Whether the bomb at the Juror's door was a sardine box full of sawdust or of dynamite, It is not stated. But it Is all right, any way. If the Juries are menaced for do ing their 'duty, or If a Juror Is murdered by anarchists, there will be martial law; and the anarchlal heroes will be gathered In by the police and shot after trials lasting half an hour. Astoria has a box factory. Why can't she have a ladder works, when she gets the railroad? Read what the North western Lumberman has to say: "J. C. Gardner, of Chicago, has starltd a step ladder factory at Lumberton, Miss. A contract has already been made with a Chicago concern for the entire output The ladder factory uses up stuff turned out by the yellow pine mills at that place that it would otherwise be difll cult to utilize." The suggestion by Mr. Boutelle that Mr. -Willis should be recalled from Ha wall should be regarded as meant for the relief of the noble Kentuckian, who is too importing in his relations with royalty to allow himself to be present at a social function of the government to which he Is accredited. The poor man should not be permitted longer to be a sufferer from divided duty. If It be true that only five hundred in surgents remain In the harbor of Rio Janeiro to bully the city and govern ment, while the rest are away on an expedition, It would seem there was oc casion for an adventure by the loyal forces. If'there are any old steamboats at hand, they should be converted into rams and tried at night. Strange to say, there Is a palaried city office In Astoria that has never been filled. It Is the office of city superin tendent of the public schools, whose salary would have to be fixed by the city board. n In all probability, so long as the schools aro getting along so nice ly without a superintendent, It Is wise to let well enough alone. It Is reported that the latest fad is that if a girl takes the small bow which fastens the lining of a man's hat and wears It Inside her shoe she will have a proposal from the youth within a month. The success of the scheme may be open to question, but It Is proving very destructive to hats. REPLACING THE FOREIGNERS. The American Line Engaging Ameri cans For Their Ships. There was considerable adverse com ment tn the American line when the steamships New York and Paris were llrst brought under our Hag. because all foreigners were not at once discharged from the employ and American cltlscns taken on Instead to wholly constitute the ship's ertw, says the Marine Jour nal. The company might have made re ply by a contrast with the American navy. In which the majority of the men are not only anything but American cltli'.cns, but stand no chunoe under ex isting laws of becoming citUens while servlnir on a war ship, - which they would If they served on an American merchant vessel a certain time after taking out their naturalization papers. 0,n,HU,y, while declining to take the public into incir uushk tr- cifta, made no explanation, nor were they swerved from their course of ac tion, which, by recent developments, shows them to be fully and thoroughly American. Not only-are they now doing all the work of docking and overhaul ing these ships at an American port, the annual overhauling of such trans atlantic; liner bolrtg hitherto unknown on this side the ocean, but we find that the crews are being changed from their foreign complexion. Prior to the de parture of the New York fjr tier over hauling nt Newport Ke' the crew of her omrlne deprtmont were transferivd to another ship to be taken to r.ujMi pa rM ,hcre- while a' new crew or American uuu-i w-r sfclocu-d. to tf.ke. the ship down to Newport ixcw", v'" - if satisfactory th''- would be retained afwrvarJ d '"' preference given to Americans "f equal ability l.ere;,fier. This is another net of patriotism fur ther commending this line to the pat ronage and l'st wishes of all Ameri cans. They are resisting all temptations toward assisting other nations.

I have noticed thiit moat athletes of the present day use nothing i'Iko but Allcock's Plasters.'' LIFE OR DEATH?
