the vice and ignorance and ballot-box
repeaters of New York City arc to rule
these United States for four years more
'or not. Decency culture and refinement
in Massachusetts have declared otherwise.
"While everything in New York, except
the cities of Brooklyn and New York
have declared against Mr. Cleveland; yet,
a great howl is raised by the democratic
editors, wh ) 8 rein to be proud of the fa t
that the footpads, thugs and manipulators,
Avho have so long controlled the politics
of these two cities, have declared in
favor of lirover Cleveland. To most
men it is a spectacle anything but exhil-
ir.iting or ennobling in any sense.
The result of Tuesday's election in
New York was clearly produced by the
most shameful violation of the civil ser
vice principles upon which Cleveland
was elected and concerning which there
has beon so much boastful cackle upon
the part of mugwumps and politicians of
the goody-goody sort. In 188:3 the result
in New York was far more disheartening
to the republicans'than that of the re
cent election, but it was not so clearly
the result of boodle. This triumph is a
victory for elements that are as coriupt
as those which constituted the Tweed
ring. "Worse than all, these elements of
corruption have been cemented by the
influence of the national administration
and backed up and reinforced by the
money and powir of the president and
his cabinet. In this triumph of rottencss
the public can see the reason why all the
money power and weight of this admin
istr ition has been centered in "Wall street,
to the hurt of the rest of the country.
Ilepublicans have been slow to tale
warning. Certainly they can now see the
handwriting on the wall that reveals the
democratic game. "With Dakota shut
out of the Union because she is republi
can, and the whole force of the adminis
tration wielded in New York to corrupt
and control elections, the significance of
the preset. t condition of affairs in the
South is to be kept solid by concessions
to the old rebel element, New York is to
be carried and held inline by hook or by
crook, and then Indiana, Connecticut or

meant when the president refused to stop
in Ohio, but was so gracious to Indiana
that he repeated his school-boy pieces in
two of our towns. To meet this we must
put forth the man who can carry New
Vork state. Evidently that man does
not live in the state. The three men any
one of whom would be likely to carry
Xew York are John Sherman, James G.
Blaine and Benjamin Harrison. Itepul -licans
are divided In opinion as to which
would be most likely to carry New York
anil most certainly win the election next
year, but we believe that nearly everyone
must sec that the standard bearer must be
one of these men. It is to be a struggle
next year instead of a walk-over. That
is settled now, and every republican
should begin to burnish up his armor and
make ready for the fray. Not noisily
nor at the expense of business, but by a
careful study of political conditions and
a preparation to meet them. We must
win next year. The future of the coun
try depends upon it. In four years more
of democratic rule the corruption and
rotenness that controls elections in New
York will be more widespread and power
ful. It grows like a cancer. It fattens
under democratic rule. The only safety
for the country lies in the triunph of the
republican party at the election next

THE SIZE OF LA DIES' lI'UCKET
From the Albany Argun
The evolution of the ladies' pocket
books is wonderful. One year ago the
ladies were satisfied with a diminutive
affair they could hide in the palms of
their hands. In '.',ltrt days the pocket
book has grown to the length of a good
sized healthy car of corn. Here are il
lustrations showing the h-ngth the pocket
book has grown every three months:

FINVI.WU A LOST CAR.
A very singular loss and recovery oc
curred recently on the Union Pacific near
Laramie. A special freight, running I
passenger time, broke in two on the .sill
and the front .section ran around a curve
so fast that it whipped off tho rear car.
filled with choice Ciiiiie.se !ilks, into the
gulch, where it disappeared from siuht
in the heay lnt-h. The break was so clenn I
i...f ( .... b,.w wen. cooled to-
gether without the single cars absence
bein,r noticed. For two months that car
lay there, while the entire road was la-ino-
searched hi'di and low for it. and
not a soul could guess w here it had gone
The other day a cowboy rode into i
small station on the line and casually
asked w hen they were going'to clear uj
that wreck down in the gulch. The
aent knew of no wreck, and thought
the cowboy was fooling with him, but at
last, convinced he was in earnest, went
with him to the spot where he had indi
cated the wreck was to be found. There
at the bottom of a very deep fill, behind
n Inure nile of boulders and a mass of
sage brush, lav the missimg car. No. !
It was resting on its side, and strangely
enough tha trucks were in proper place
The doors were sealed, and there was
nothing beyond a few bruises and dents in
the roof and i-bles to show that there had

The agent thought he was dreaming, our
v. ben li; found he was wide awake, he
lost no time in hurrying homo, ana ivie-
.rr:.ihirir to headquarters. The car was
raised and its contents found intact.
The admirable weather of the mountain
redon the abse nce of rain, and the un
fortunate fact that the car was completely
hidden from view from the track above,
combined to protect tho valuable cargo
from the ravages of the elements or ol
passing tramps, so there was not a dollar's
worth of loss to the lot. Ex.

Itt any one consider what tho steam en

t:o very latest improved compound engine of

and efficient service, and then let him try to

years hence will I.e. Tho compound engine,
with its wonderful performance, has come as
a result of Ions practice, largo experience,
profound study, ami tho application of a wido

Philadelphia There is a rcjrular
market now for coal. "Why should there not
then lo a regular market for fitored power?
AVhy should not a mill owner then go out
and buy his power, for tho season, just as ho
buys his cotton, his wool or his dyo stufi's?
If power can be baled tip like cotton or
barreled up like sugar, then wo shall have
power dealers, power brokciv:, and, may be,
a power exchange in fact, all the details of
a new and important industry. Is this a
funtnstic supposition? Not half so fantastic
the notion of traveling from Boston to
Philadelphia in a single night was to our
grandfathers. It is rather a clearly indicated
possibility, tho promise of which is contained
iu the street ear which is now moving about
u,ider an impulse derived from a steam en-
gine that stopped before tho car started.
The Strainers of the 'World.
Recent statistics show that tho number of
steamers exist in the world in ItSNo was
.siimated at O.Oi,'.'. of an apjrregate burden of
I0,r,:;i,s-i: tons. In the previous year the
umUr was stated at VfiO, of an aggregate
1 r.trden of 10.2:1 ,2 !1 tons. The world's steam
shipping in lsssi was thus distributed: Iron
Kt'-amers, S,ll,S, of an aggregate burden of
8,'.Ul,4'Jo tons; steel steamers, 770, of an ag
gregate burden of 33,S20 tons, and wooden
steamers, or an aggregate burden ot
s.si,f)."). tons. Of the steamers afloat in 1885,
),7'.r2 were owned by the United Kingdom
and its colonies, their aggregate burden being
6,5!5,07l tons. Tho other countries of the
world owned steamers in the following order:
Germany, 570; France, 509; Spain, 401; the
United States, -100; Norway, 287; Russia, 012;
Denmark, 200; Italy, 173; Holland, 152;
Brazil, 141; Japan, 105; Greece and Turkey,
Si each; Belgium, OS; Chili and Argentine
republic, 4'i each; China and Portugal, 27
each; Hawaii, 21 : Mexico, 15, and miscella
neous, 50. From the above figures it appears
that, notwithstanding the great depression
prevailing in the steam shipping trade, the
number of steamers afloat last 3'ear increased
to the extent of 327 as compared with 1S85.

Instruct ingf the Reporter.
Unhaipy is tho lot of a daily newspaper
chief who has never been a reporter. 1 b
service calls for officers that have conio up
from the rank:;. Otherwise they will fail to
gauge accurately tne relations oi men ana
events to each other, and will become a prey
I tQ circumstances. I have known tho pub
lisher of an iniiuential journal to instruct a
reporter to take out his note book and pencil
as a preliminary step whenever he should be
seat to interview a person. As well tell a
detective to wear a badge on his breast, or a
patrolman to walk the street with a cocked
revolver in his right Land. Many people
would bo more afraid of a reporter who
should suddenly ''draw'' a note book on them
than they would of either policeman or de
tective. Of coar , tho note book must bo
asod for public speeches and deliberations,
and, also, like tho revolver in dire emergen
cies; but the rcpoi-tcr who cannot remember
a column and a half of ordinary conversa
tion (unless it coiieerus technical matters of
which ho had no previous knowledge) until
ho has time to turn it into intelligible "copy,"
should seek bread and fame in some new em
ployment. Heary XV. Blake in The "Writer.
AVliCTC Gems Are Dyed.
Precious stones are dyed at Oberstein, Ger-
r.-.anv, v.-horo nearly the whole population is
devoted to the work of making bogus jewelry
and fixi.ig up chei-.p gems to look line. Differ
ent families have their different modes of
treatment, and some families have the secret
of some one or another special tint which can
be mado nowhere else. Chalcedony is the
usual base of fal ;e onyxes and agates, which
are most counterfeited. The stones are boiled
in the coloring matter and then subjected to
intense heat. Tho color permeates the whole
stone. One fanr.ly has the secret oi convert
ing croeidolite into "cat's eyes."' Gypsum
and hornblende are also made into tho same
gems. Tircons. which are cheap stones of
silicon and zireonia, have the color washed
out and are apparently diamonds until tested.
A thin s lice of diamond is laid over a topaz
so that the whole appears to be one gem.
Emeralds are easily imitated. Many stones
sold as rubies are onlj- red spinel, and much
of the lapis lazuli is only dyed chalcedony.
