his navy, the other day one of his ves

Tiik American system of slavery,
accordidg to General Jackson, of Florida,
was "the gentlest and by far the most
civilizing relationship ever borne by
labor to capital." It is sad to reflect that
the American working man cannot be
brought to see the beauty of the kind of
relationship between capital and labor
which the General commends as the most
AG A INST ASSASSIN A TION.
Wiiting the day before the execution
of the anarchists the Chicago Inter
Oram said: "A good many excellent
people are expressing the fear that if Un
convicted anarchists arc executed in ac
cordanee with the sentence passed in due
coarse of law that they will go into his
tory as martyrs to the cause they advo
cated and be canonized. The attention
of all such is called to the record in the
history of this country. No assassin nor
any man who openly advocated assassin
ation or who advised the destruction of
women and children by gun-power or
dynamite has ever been canonized in this
country. The assassin of Lincoln made
a courageous fight, but he was killed,
and he lias remained siniply the assassin
of the president of the nation. His ac
complices were executed, and no more
than a feeble attempt has ever been made
to throw around their persons or their
memories any glamour of martyrdom.
This feeble attempt never went higher
than the level of men who manufactured
the cheap sensationalism of the dime
novel, and it failed even there. The as
sassins of Lincoln haye remained assas
sins, and that is all that any one cares to
say of them.
"When Guiteau fired upon President
Garfield the public sentiment of this
country arouse against him and his meth
ods. He attitudinized very much as
some of the convicted anarchists are now
posing before the public, but the verdict
of the country was almost unanimously
in favor of his prompt execution. He
was executed, and no one, not even the
crankiest of mortals, has ever intimated
that he was a martyr to any cause, or
that he was to be canonized in any frm
His memory is held in universal con
tempt, and the theory that he represented
is so hateful to the people that no one
has ever presumed to enter upon excuse
or defense of the so-called principles
enunciated by the assassination of Presi

whom th?y make war. The sneak thief,
the highway robber, and the train robber
are egotists enough to believe that the
people are afraid of them until the tim -comes
for settlement and punishment,
and then the weakness of criminal asso
ciation with intent to intimidate the pub
lic is shown. And when the fact is de
monstrated that they who violates law
must suffer the penalty, there arc few to
say that because a murderer hanged or n
train robber imprisoned for life that theie
is a possibility he will become a martyr
or be canonized. Whatever may become
of the convicted anarchists, this much
be said, once for all, there is no danger
that they will ever be remembered by
the American people other than as con
spirators against the public peace. The
public sentiment in this country is
against assassination and anarchy, and
the men who can not understand the
drift of sentiment and can not catch the
meaning of tlio public attitude are in
danger of suffering very severe penal
ties." Gazette Journal.

FREEDOM AND LICENSE.
Anarchint leaders throughout the
country refuse to comment on the execu
tion of tin: Chicago murderers because,
they say, five speech lias been strangled.
Free speech, as anarchy defines the term,
needs strangling. The immediate effect

who recogniz-j thj difference between

The report comes to us of a serious
riot at Pocahontas, Virginia, among na

arising from an alleged dispatch from
Chicago to the foreigners, calling upon
them to avet-ge the death of the anarch

is composed, for the most part, of illiter

R ES UBM rj'TIN G PRO II I BIT ION.
De3 Moines Register, 10- There has
Ik-cu a little talk in Iowa eluring the past
few months as to the propriety of resub
mitting the constitutional amendment.
This talk will probably bo reviveel m a
more animated maimer. This matter was
discussed in De-i Moines a great eleal yes
;erdry, and Mr. I Jerry hill ami other
prominent m.n of the republican party
were inclined to think that in still more
active espousal of prohibition it would
be well fo the incoming legislature to
pass a resolution of submission. It takes
two legislatures to submit an amendment
to the constitution. If it shoulel be sub
mitted this winter, the next legislature
would be elected two years from now on
the question of submission, an 1 if pro
hibition ca-ried it would also vote to
submit, and that would bring the sub
ject up before tins people the succeeding
year at a nonpartisan election, and doubt
h-ss put the prohibition theory in the con
stitution sis well as the law. There is a
very general disposition among republi
cans against sounding any retreat on
this question. The party has put its
hands to the plow and cannot in honor
look back, and will not be disposed to
THE SIGN PAINTER'S WORK.
Interesting Information About the Ad
vertisements AVe See- on Fences.
"That man is a sign painter by trade," re
marked a contractor, pointing to a man who
was erecting a fence before a building that
was to Le torn down, 4'but he finds it pays
better to put up fences where building is
going on and let out the spaces to adver
tisers. The big profits in the business have
brought about a healthy comj.etition, and
everything is now reduced to a fine art. I
remember a few years ago this sign painter
came to ine and offered to put up a now fence
free of charge in front of a building I was
erecting providing he could use the boards
for advertising purposes. I jumped at the
oiTer and thought the man was a fool for
making it. The shoe was on the other foot,
however, for I should have received several
hundred dollars to boot for the privilege.
"This man has brought the business down to
a science, lie has scores of agents scouring
the city for eligible sites, as well as can
vassers to drum up advertisements. His
fences, which are very neat and attractive,
are built in uniform sections and join to
gether on the groove principle. An adver
tiser can thus have hisaimouncement changed
to different localities at will without going
to the expense o having a new sign painted.
The old method of building a new fence every
time made this mode of advertising very ex
pensive, and the lessees often lost money by
U-ing unable to let out all the spaces; but the
cost is now reduce to a minimum by making
the sections to slide in and out like the lid of
'The rates, of course," he continued, "de
pend upon the location. A sign on Broadway
costs the most, but many of the cross streets
arc nearly as desirable. The big advertisers
make contracts by the year. Some of their
signs are very elaborate. As soon as one
building is finished they are put up else
where. The lessee who has a number of
these contracts runs no risk in leasing a priv
ilege, because he has bis advertisers before
hand, and their signs are ready to slide into
position. The- first charge is made for the
painting of the sign, and then so much per
day for its use as an advertisement. The
artistic appearance of the signs has improved
very much since the introduction of tbemov
alJe section, for enterprising houses no longer
look upon it as extravagant to have trade
marks or pictures of specialties correctly
painted on a fence. Tbeso signs don't re
main long in the same place. A building is
soon put up in New York." New York

When the late duke of Portland died
most of his property went to his siste'is,
one of whom was Lady Ossington. As
this lady wsis a widow she was assisted
in the management of her great inherit
ance by her brother-in-law, the late A.
Denlson, and in return for his services
she made him si cenisidersible present in
money. This money Mr. Penison in-,
vested in a sumptuous watch. A very
musical repeater of the liest workman
ship was inclosed in a gold case literally
studded with jewels, and each jewel a
stone. The watch chain h;id si successien
e.f black jiearls, and the signet was a

whim was that the owner scarcely dsired
wear the watch for fear of lx?ing robbed

If ever the habit of cigarette smoking

evil effects of the vice that has so se-cure-ly

An Egyptian Papyrus.
Lepsms, the elirector of the Egyptian
department of the royal museums eif Ber
lin. Germany, si very famous Egyptolo
gist, at his desith left a remarkable papy
rus which he had obtained from an
English lady-, 3Iis3 Westcar. According
to its language it was written about the
scveTntecnth century before Christ, the
lcriod of the delivery of Egypt from the
rule of the Ayksos (Jews?). It measures
nearly two yards in length anel is about
fourteen inches high. On one side it con
tains nine, on the other three, columns of
an average of twenty-six horizontal lines
of writing each. Some parts of the
writing sire entirely obliterated, many so
much as to beunreaelable. The beginning
and the conclusion are gone entirely.
Nevertheless, the recitals have been read
and sufficiently restored to become intel
ligible. One of tho tales is that King Snofru
was sad of heart, and on the advice, of
Zezemoaeh, the priest and reader to the
king, hail a boat manned by twenty
beautiful oarswomen and went on a voy
age. One of the women happened to
drop a precious jewel of malachite into
the sea. and was so overwhelmed with
grief that she elropped her oar and the
ljosit came to a standstill. The king was
tllsmayed. But Zezemonch raised one
half of the waters of the lake and elapjied
ic on top of the other half, leaving half of
the botiom of the lake dry, descendeel
and brought up the jewel, and the boat
resumeel its journey. Another legend of
the papyrus says the god of the sun. Re,
had triplets by Reddedct, the wife of the
priest Kawoser, who, he decreed, should
dethrone the Egyptian dynasty and rule
in its stead. Put one of Rededdet's
maids went to the king, Chufu (Cheops),
anel tells him what has happened, and
that the goels have already given to the
boys three diadems of gold. Then Dedi,
the king's magician, engulfs the country
in a fearful inundation, destroying every
thing except the three boys, who are
saveel by Re. So, it seems, neither the
emperor of Chisia, nor Hercules, nor
Romulus and Remus, were the first sons
of the gods bearing rule on earth. Chi
Klectricity Among the Grapevines.
A man who lives but a few miles out
of Albany protects Ids grapevines from
fruit thieves in a novel manner. The
supports are of wood, but the cross pieces
arc of wire insulated from the ground,
and connected with an induction coil
capable of delivering a heavy spark
throngh an inch ot air. The other jxdo
of the coil Ls connected to the ground.
Si:c good sized bichromate of potsish cell3
furnish electro motive force for the coil.
Short wires hanging among the vines are
secured to the large wire?s, and when any
one monkeys with the grapevine while
the battery is connected the neighborhood
is apt to hear from him. It works every
time, and no one comes for a second c ose.
