They Cucked the Tiger.
And now comes a rumor which, if true,
bids fair 1 o bodiroiiie people 110 good.
As is well known, the brotherhood of
firemen and engineers have, since the stike
0:1 the 15. oc M. riceived pay, monthly,
from their respective orders. The cash
has been distributed by men from heael
fpiarttTS selected for the purpose. It is
rumored that the pay for last month is
still being awaited by the men here for
this reason, bonio days ago, it is said,
tin- paymaster started for Omaha wilh
about &4.000 with which to liquidate the
claim of the societ y. Hut, as reported.
the mi 11 are still wa'-ting. "It is allcget
that the paymaster instead of paying oft
as be should, blew the wlmle amount in
on faro at Cuuncl 1 11 u ITs. A striking en
gineer was s-een yesterday morning and in
reply to a tpustion as to whether they
had received their allowance for last
month, said "he had not" So it would
seem that something is in the vi: tl. Th
nioniy was due long ago and if l.ot paid
by this time there is surely something
wrong. Iiee.

for operation. The paper will he a four

see the hoys prosper in their new adven

iis newspapers the support it should, but
when three ink fienels light on her all at
once, it may arouse the people to a sense
of their duty.
Since the above notice was w ritten we
have been sorry to learn that the proprie

the proposed Etruiny News, and it has
died before its birth. The boys were
dissatific-d with thesuppnrt rc-.-eived and
have come to the conclusion that Platts

Just in time to contract with Mr. Pat
terson's manly frank.iess on the tari fi'
ipc-lion comes Governor Hill's speech, in
which he said, if the St. Louis, platform
was for free trade, he would not stand
on it. The Governor has ncyer made any
reputation as an honest man in his
public career, and it is natural that he
resorts to a deception iu his first speech
of the campaign.
Amitlu r iltanocrat unintentionally ut
ters a great truth, in declaring that the
St. Louis platform is no more for free
trade than the republican platform of
100 was for abolition. Not any more
and every democrat who supported
Douglas or I'reckeuriilge in lSiJO declared
the republican an abolition party, and
its platform an obolition platform. They
quoted with zest the. profound remark of
Mr. Lincoln, that the republican party
meant to place slavery "where the public
mind would rest in the certainty of its
ultimate extinction." That i exactly
what the democrats mean to do with the
protective policy. Thev rot propose
to abolish it, by no means. They only ;
intend to cripple and destroy it, part by
part, so that "the public mind shall rest
in the certainty of its ultimate extinc
tion." Moreover, the public mind will
have the best if reasons fur expecting
the ultimate and the speedy extinction
of the protective system i f the democratic
party get complete control of the gov
ernment, The dir.linetion is proper and the ebm
ocrats are welcome lo it. They ele not
intend free tradj this year. What they
want is to proceed toward free trade as
fast and a.i far as they can. "Freer"
now, as Governor Hill pui.-: it: free trade
as the ulti;r.iie end, Mr. "Watterson con
fesses. The two democrats fit each other
well. To make a dishonest party, they
are needed men to tell falsehoods where
false hoods pay, and other m .-n to tell
the truth where the truth pays lxst.N.

This i.s tho Victoria market, the principal
one in Kington. Thero is imr.t.hev, called
the Jubile:: market, i:i aiiOtl.t r part of tho
city. The Vic toria market I consider tho
(!:: t iri tho West linlics. In the early morn-
1 in . it is crowded w itli buyers, sejliera au'l
floods, and by early morning I mean from (J
to Ii o'clock. It ii a wonder of a market for
any West Indian city, built entirely of iron,
:;u0 feet long, and 200 feet wide. The end'
and sides arc fiien, there boin.j no sidu walls,
as none aro m-ede-d, but tho wbolo place is
surrounded by a tall iron railing mounted on

kill it and seli it tho same morning, appar

chunks, without reu'iid to choice parts or
poor parts. 1 kuow tho beef is pood when
properly handled, because whenever I dined
in a private house tho roasts were excellent,
having 110 doubt been kept for some time o
ies, but in the hotel, where it was ustd witbia
a few hours of its coming from market, il
was utterly unfit to put on too tuble. The
mutton, too, ood when properly Iced ;

throughout th West Indies to kill an aci

very largely for the wretched mtiat com

Cioat meat ia not to Ijo laughed at, provided
it oomcs oat ol a tender kil. I ate my first

quite as well as turkey. Straw l-erries aro

they look at two cents each, for they are
