The Republican electors of the State of

from the several counties, to meet in con

National R-iublicun Convention, which

Engineers now Las to decide is not the
fate of the strike but the fate of the
order. By ten years of careful observance
of the law, since the - strike upon the
Grand Trunk and the Boston and Lowell
in the troublous times of 1877, this
order lias held an enviable position. It
has been known as intelligent, conserva
tive and law-abiding. It has secured the
confidence and the respect of the public.
It lias, in that time, by virtue of this
very reputation, had greater intluence
with railroid oilicials and been enabled
to secure peaceably a greater fcliaro of its
demands than it pusibly could by any
other course. And its reputation enlisted
upon its ride the tremendous power of
public sympathy. It is now in danger
of forfeiting the benefits of this slow
and painful work of years. Its eafety
depends upon cutting loose from the
lawless elements whose co operation it
has invited by the continuance of a hope
less strike. If it shall continue to in rite
the perpetration tf such acts as these,
they will be charged to its account. It
can not avoid the responsibility for oc

DIRTY DETECTIVE WORK.
We were asked yesterday wny we did
not say more about the strike, and take
the offensive against the strikers. All
we have to say is we wrote our opinion
at the beginning of the strike, and have
nothing new to say. "We have consider
ed the strike ended for the past two
weeks, and the raising of he boycott
yesterday in Chicago convices us more
than cyer that the Brotherhood is left
out in the cold. And to keep pounding
away on the same subject eyery day and
nothing new to sty about it becomes mo
notonous, and just keeps things agitatet
where as if lot alone it soon dies out of
its own free will.
The threatened strike of switchmen on
the lines connecting with the Burlington
road indicates that it may yit becme
necessary for the railway companies of
the west in general to make a fight in
defense of their right to do business ac
cording to law, notwithstanding the de
mauds of their employes that they shall
haul only such cars as are painted in
given colors or received from certain
sources. Of course the ultimate result
of such a coutest must be in favor of the
railroads ; and it is lamentable that
class of laborers who have every reason
to be satisfied with their condition seem
to think that they can better it by throw
ing themselves out of employment on
pretexts which an intelligent public can
not possibly indorse. Globe-Democrat,

Two different methods are illustrated at
Coney Island. The Manhattan Beach
property has been protected for half a
dozen years by a barricade of piles and

pooh-poohed by some people at first its
wisdom has been demonstrated. The
big Brighton Beach caravansary is now
mounted on cars and rails, and this week
the work of hauling it back beyond the
reach of the wares is to be done. It is a
costly job. If successful, it will make
seaside property of this character a safer
investment than it was. New York

How Victims Are Sometimes lllackmalled
by Unprincipled "1'rlvate Detectives."
"Something ought to be done to control
these private detective agencies," said a po
lice officer of rank to a reporter the other
day. "They are a nuisance, and work more
barm than any one imagines. I don't refer
to the straight agencies, but these concerns
that do all the dirty work are the ones I re
fer to. Anybody can start a detective
agency, and sme of the men who work for
many of those in Chiengo ought to be in the
jwnitentiary. Many private detectives make
their living by blackmail, and it is easy to
see that they have a fine field to work in.
" 1 ake, for instance, a case of a woman,
or even a man, who has some standing. Some
one it may be a husband or wife, or even
an outsider puts a detective on the track of
the oue bo wants to find out about, and the
victim is followed everywhere. Suppose
something is found out and there's nobody
but has a little dark spot that shouldn't bo
ercposcd and here's where the chanco for
blackmail comes in. Tho detective makes
his report end receives his pay, but doesn't
let tha matter rest there, lie has a hold on
oil the one ho'a been shadowing, and when
tho proper time comes he works tho racket
for what it's worth. He wants a loan, after
kiting the victim know, of course, what
knowledge he possesses, and nine to one he
r,3zs it. The ore affected knows that ho can't
tuTord exposure and he is willing to pay for
secrecy, ilind you, all private detectives
doa't work this snap, but many of them do.
"I know of a young man who robbed bis
uaployer. The latter knew something was
vtrong, so ho hired a shadower. Proof
e.gainst the young man was complete, and
when he was confronted with it ho confessed
everything. lie begged not to be exposed,
and the employer consented to hi9 remain
ing provided be made up the shortage. This
he did and afterward regained his employ
er's confidence. Then he married a fine girl
on the west side and was happy. The world
smiled on him and he was getting along as
nicely as any one could wish when one day
be was called on by a strange man, who soon
let him know that he was the detective who
bad done the shadowing. He didn't say
that he would expose the young man, but
the latter knew what the matter was and
readily consented to make a small loan. In
stead of telling his wife and employer about
it he struggled on, meeting demands on him,
and finally took to drinking. His employer
discharged him, he went lower and lower,
and when he gof clear into the gutter bis
wife left him bemuse he couldn't support
her. The other day, I see by the papers, she
sued for a divorce, and she'll get it. Chicago
I'rcKervatiou of I'orets.
The preservation of forests from the depre
dations of insects and apludes is largely de-
lendent upon the spiders that inhabit them,
more ellective work of this kind being per
formed by them than by the insect-eating
birds. Examinations of the viscera of the
spiders kept in captivity show them to be vo
racious destroyers of these creaturers, and as
toey prefer dark spots in the forests, which
ore the places most infested by vermin, the
raf.ilts of their labor are very beneficial.
AVater I'roof Rook Bindings.
A composition has been produced which
may prove valuable to book binders, having
fr its purpose the rendering water proof of
k:ither, cloth, paper, etc. It is a mixture of
water, silicate of soda, resin, alum, potash,
ll: h glue, sulphate of zinc and sulphate of
copper in various proixrtious, The applica
tion is said to render the material impervious
to tho influence of oil or water, and, if a
variety of ingredients increase practical
utility, should be very valuable. Chicago
Market for Uetl Oak.
A profitable market Las been found for the
poor, despised American red oak, that has
been co:isidired of no value at all. Ameri
can dealers are buying no all they can rret

the lumber is manufactured into fancy fur
niture and shipjcd back to ITew York, where
It i sold to wealthy people as the real Eng-

Thousands of brain and hand toilers take
their midday meal in down town re'Staurants.
It is within tho memory of most people when
this was practically unknown here. Tho
growth of tho city anil the extension of tho
limits of residence districts have served to
bring this alout. In this respect Chicugo is
merely having the same experience as l'uns,
London, New York, Boston, Philadelphia
and the other large cities of the world.
The great metropolitan centers have also
long hud to do with tho matter of supplying
to tho people th3 cleanest and most nutri
tious food at the lowest pritw jiossible.
Thoughtful and philanthropic persons have
studied the question in its economic and
moral bearings, and tho experiments made
in other cities have generally been very sat
isfactory and successful. Tho coffee house
of Great Britain is known tho world over.
The British workman is as familiar with it
as with the church or chapel he attends, the
vocation he follows or tho vernacular ho
speaks. It is a place where lie can get for
from three to five pence (from six to ton
cents) a suljstantial repast of good food and
cotTee, tea or milk, served in a cleanly man
ner, in a respectable place, to which he could
take his wife or daughter, or some one's else
daughter. The same conditions and classes
are to be found in America as in London or
Liverpool, Glasgow or Manchester, Birming
ham or Bristol. The cities of the United
States like New York and Philadelphia, Bos
ton and Chicago, have had growing up the
past twenty-live years the same lunch or res
taurant system which has long obtained in
the cities beyond tho sea.
Chicago is as well supplied with excellent
restaurants as Paris or New York, according
to its size. No visitor from the near or far
east fails to compliment this city in these
particulars. Tho traveled, cultured and well-to-do
classes recognize and appreciate such
comforts and conveniences more readily than
any other. There is, however, a portion of
the community whose members are not often
heard on these matters. They are not tho
opulent or middle classes, but tho wage work
ers. How many places are there down town
where respectable shop girls, for example,
earning from $3 to $5 anil $G a week, could
afford to go and get a warm noon meal, or
even a lunch, suitable to a brain or hand
worker! There are restaurants without
number where persons earning from 10 to
or $100 a week can suit themselves as to
the bill of fare, and jet how does the case
stand with respect to those who cannot afford
to pay more than 50, 75 cents or $1 a week
out of their hard earnings for lunches, and
who feel they must have somo nutritious
food in the middle of the day? The TV. C.
T. U. has undertaken and maintains a lunch
establishment where healthful, plain, nutri
tive food can be obtained at about cost, but
in the nature of the case this coffee house can
do no more than suggest what might be done.
In the average restaurant all articles of food
cost five cents or multiples of five. There
are several establishments where from 8,000
to 4,000 persons are fed daily. The charges
are reasonable, the coffee, rolls, milk, etc..
aro excellent, the places scrupulously clean
and neat, and the service all that could be
wished ; and yet many of the working jx?oplo
are nnablo to patronize them because of tho
scanty wages they receive, and the strict
economy they must constantly exercise. In
some of the experiments in Great Britain,
Philadelphia and elsewhere, there have been
maintained eating houses for just these
classes, and they have been successful. YThv
might not some of our philanthropic citizens
find in this a field for their practical benevo
lence? Is it not worthy of attention?
A model coffee house has been maintained
in 1 nnaueipnia ior j ears. it began in one
room. The food was good, well cooked, clean
and cheap. A pint of the best coffee, with
cream and sugar and a roll, cost five cents.
It was no charity. Patrons paid for what
they got, and got what they paid for. The
idea was not one of profit, but purely of phi
lanthropy. It steadily grew in favor, and
its generous founder, a leader in the Society
of Friends, has had it enlarged time and
again. Then a room was opened to women,
Tho workingmen were benefited, and work
ing women came to bo by the addition of tho
department for them. A reading room was
added in time, and a hall that would seat S00
Other coffee houses hare been established
on the same general plan. The original re
freshment room, opened in 1874, has crown
to accommodate 400 persons at a time, and
over 3,000 meals are served dailv. The bill
of fai-e provides for some seventy articles,
whose cost is from three to ten cents. This
will give some idea of expense to customers:
Oatmeal, grits, mush, stews, pot pie, codfish
cakes, liver, eggs, potatoes, corn, peas, and
tea, coffeo or milk, with bread, five cents;
peaches, frozen custards and melon in season,
six cents; beef, veal, mutton, ham, fish or
baked beans, eight cents, and sirloin steak,
chowder or egg omelet, ten cents. The dishes
are large, and are described as ample for ail
the requirements of the inner man. This
model coffee bouse has no cigar stand, al
though very high prices have been offered
for a corner to sell tobacco. The idea of the
Philadelphia coffee house may lead some
philanthropists in Chicago and elsewhere to
go and do likewise. Inter Ocean.

The Romans Not Dancers.
It is an erroneous impression that is in
vogue in certain quarters that the Romans
were dancers or encouraged dancing. That
was one feature of the Grecian civilization
that the Romans did not adopt. In fact,
dancing was always in disrepute among the
Romans, who were too practical a people to
indulge in such fantastic recreation. A Ro
man historian refers to this fact in connec
tion with the trial of Claudius, who was
charged with having fraudulently got him
self elected to the tribune. Jt was also
charged as a further allegation of Claudius'
bad character aud unworthiness that he had
been guilty of dancing. This charge, how
ever, 13 refuted by Clandius' counsel in an
address to the tribune, who stated that his
client bad too much sense to be guilty of such
foolishness as bopping around on one foot
and then on another. Father John N. Po
