Lawrence shall roceite the democratic nomination for Con gr eta today, tho campaign will be one of principles rather than personal isms be tween the two parties. John L. Sclutas'a Australian tour has resulted in a square knockout for Lini financiallY. The Australians evinced a better conception of his gross character in refusing to listen to his coarse mouthing on the stage than did the Americans. The Democratic Congressional con- Tention will meet in thia city tomorrow. It is probable that after calling the delegates to oid?r and perfecting an organization, the contention will ad journ over until evening to give the visitors a chance to see the horse trot at the West Michigan track. The Detroit Free Tress is so violently opposed to the nomination of W. G. Thompson for mayor cf that city, by tho Democrats, that it is trying to make itself believe that it is all there is of the Democratic party of Detroit. Its bitter attacks upom Mr. Thompson suggest a personal grievance rather than a j-olilical objection. Ax English variety actress took a pint of carbolic acid and died. The suicide threatens an eruption in aristo cratic circles. Her American rival would have taken an equal amount of water from a bottle labeled "deadly poison," fallen into adeath-swoon, and revived in time to read what the papers had to say about her in the morning. Her fame would le established. The English are too intensely serious, you know. The Detroit baptist ministers arc agitating a reform in the conduct of funeral services. It is to be hoped that they shall b succeuful in modifying the present In visit ceremonials attend ing the burial cf tho rich. The poor seek to imitate the extravagant displays made by the wealthy on such occasions and such imitation becomes a burden at once oppressive and unnecessary. The cjnie t, unostentatious interment of the det J is more in keeping with our civili. zatinn. Silent grkf and becoming re fpect for our deceased friends is best manifested in a simple funeral cere mony and an attendance confined to the immediate friends and relatives. The time is corning when pubhc funer als will be unpopular and unde&red. The Evening Leader, after a carcftl countirg of nors, concludes that the Democratic delegates to the Congres sional convention wiil stampede on the second ballot for John 8. Lawrence, of this city, and it predicts his nomina tion. After quoting the opinions of som? of the astute leaders the Leader uses this significant language: 'If these gentlemen reason correctly, th Democracy of the Fifth district is certa nly to be congratulated upon its choice of a candidate. Mr. Lawrence is not 'one of the tovs aa the cbraa goe in politics, but the Democracy of this neck of the weeds has had several of 'the boya and now it should try a m. Mr. Lawrence is a man. Heis clean, honorable and hizh minded and can be depended upon to take a place among the members of the Democratic Hou at Washinjtcn. where he will commemi the restt and confidence ol b;a ai'ita and refect credit upon c s constituents at home. ' This remarkable admission, or con fession, as to the character of 'several" cf the Democratic nominees is worthy of more thau pasirg notice, coming as it does from a staunch and onvarying supporter cf the self-tame "1 hoys." co96Rxnc bi t niOMor. The r of intolerance in rel gioua be. liefs and olwrvances is past. Last evening a spectae was pres-nted in this city that probably has no parallel lo htcry. The In ty club, a social ei'rmCjy society, held its niectinf in Tcmpte Emanuel, a Jw'.U synagogue. The meeting was presided over by the IUv. M;Ia F Tufper, paator of tne Unitarn church. The local branch cf the SaivaUoa Army was prese t in full force, and the cicre or Us power ful voice of the members mingled In vociferous paens of praise to Jesus. and loud exclamations of thanksgiving for the e&caey os his blood in wathing away the sins of the world. In closing the services, or exercu, one of tue moat distinguished and philanthropic agnostics of this city, D. A. Dlodgett, proposed that a collection be taken up tor the benefit of the Army. Was ever j tuch a picture presented before? A ! Jewish synagogue in which the teach ings and precepts of the Mosaic law aro observed to the exclusion of ti cs? of the New Testament. A president whose creed admits the humauity but denies the divinity of Jesus. A body of wild enthusiasts the members of which ac cept and I relieve the whole of tlm lhble in its literal sense. Finally a man who believes in no divinity but nature. Strangely incongruous, but happily harmonious, it indicated a lofty spirit of noble forbearance that cannot but appeal to every man's cause of pro priety. Ta at taccsse obmxaxcr. The ordinance now before the conn cil in which is contemplated thearti tary levying of a license fee upon ped dlers and itinerant merchants was re ferred to briefly yesterday roorniug and a Texas case decided by the United States Court, was cited to show that a grave question existed as to the valid ity of such legislation, either by mu nicipal or state legislative bodies. An other case in point aroso in Nevada, Missouri, where there is in force an ordinance similar to the one now be fore the co mcil. The case was oue of two Kansas commercial travelers who were arre6tsd under the ordinance of Nevada, Mo., charged with peddling without a licence. The canvassers were furnished with samples to be sold which they carried from honse to bouie. The terms were one-sixth down, the rest in live equal monthly installments. The first payment was made to the solicitor, which was his commission. An order was then sent by the agent to the house at Topeka, who delivered to the purchaser. A collecting agent gathered in the re maining payments. The decision of the court, Judge Phillips, of the Uni ted States Court of Kansas, writing the opinion, affirms the right of non-resident merchants to do business in other states by solicitation of purchase, by taking orders on the house to be filled and the goods shipped into other states for delivery without the goods being subject to the license tax of the state, or an occupation tax on the solicitor, on the ground that such a tax would be a burden upon inter-state commerce. It was contended that the act of one canvasser in making sale of one clock without taking an order therefor on the house, according to the instruction of the house and custom of the agents, brought his case within the definition of a peddler, and subjected him to the operation of the state law. Tho court, however, decided that ho was acting as an agent, and that under section 8 of article 1 of the constitution he could not be held. The council may profit by tho two decisions cited in these col umns. PLEASE STOP THE 8T1XK. Now that tho milk inspection ordi nance has been deferred, amended and tinkered with until it is in a state of chaotic confusion, the Board of Health might rest a while on that scheme and turn its attention to something else of equal importance. In every civilized city of any importance there is a regu lation for tue collection of garbage and swill, but up to the present timo this matter has been overlooked in Grand Rapids. Swill wagons by tho dozen parade the streets at all hours of tho day. Each one contains open barrels and tubs filled with tho most hornb'o filth, and they are loathsomo and dis gusting beyond description. It is not an infrequent cccurrence that these nuisances obstruct the passage of car riages on the main thoroughfares and sicken all who are obliged to pass. An ordinance should bo formed and passed that will require al! such material to bo collected before 8 o'clock in the morn ing, and it should be placed in tightly covered receptacles so that the odor of the contents may be retained and the citizens preserved from the sight and stench of them. The necessity for such an ordinance is indispntable, and its preparation should be no longer de layed. CAMPBELL'S OBJECT LESSO. It would seem to be almost super fluous to add further testimony to the proof already given that tin plate is manufactured in America, but a re cent episode is so convincing that its reproduction here will not prove tire some to those who have already con ceded that tin plate making is an es tablished fact. Last Saturday even ing. Governor Campbell, of Ohio, re turned t his home in Columbus after a hard week's service in his own be half on the stump. During the week he bad taken occasion to repeat many times his doubt as to whether such a thing as a tin plate factory existed in America Upon his arrival at the ex. ecutive mansion, he found awaiting a box weighing over one hundred pounds of blight and shining tin p'ate the prod- uct or American workmen man ufactured at Iemra!er, Pa. The box was wnt by express, the charge being prepaid and every de tail ol a tree ana renerous cut was sreupuiousty observed. To Miify any doubts th governor might have on the subject of its genuineness as an Ameri can proloct, tnetox was accompanied by an affidavit of which the following it a copy: rfTr.r tTS 10 1B TtJ.Pl.ATR Ml5CFA"TCR!SO COKfAXT, DlWULEA, Allegheny county, Pa., Oct. 1.

There are hundreds of our people who aro suffering from lingering dis eases who have not received benefit from their family physicians. Such sufferers should write a description of their cases to tho famous Dr. Greene, cf 35 W. 14th-st., New York, the dis coverer of the renowned remedy Dr. Greene's Nervura, and successful soec ialist in the cure of all forms of,hcr vous and chronic diseases.
