Tub Urgent state house in the United
States was thrown open and dedicated
with proper ceremonies Saturday. For
many years work has been progressing
upon this building, and it belong-i to the
State of Texas.

and seem to h ive more to say in regard
to the management of the government
than those through wliose efforts the re

It is unquestionably true, as suggest
ed by Hon. John R. Lynch, the distin
guished colrcd lender, that "if it is possi
ble for the Republicans to carry New
York nt all they can carry it with Gresh-
um;" and a man who can beat Cleveland
in New York hns claims upon the Chi
cago conventiau which entitle him to
profound consideration at its hands.
Neaiii.y four years have passed since
the democratic press and orators said if
the people would put the demccratic
party in power they would reduce the
surplus. They have now been in power
three years and have not kept a single
promise; hu? have piled up the money
in the vaults faster than ever, so that it
begins to look now if something was not
done soon, the country will have a finan
cial crisis, that will take year9 to recover
The scare to the effect that the Chicago
Auditorium would urt be ready for the
republican convention seems to be with
out foundation. It is promised that the
building shall he completed in good time.
The claim is made that the building will
be the finest convention hall in the count
ry. A special feature will be the arrange
ment of the galleries, so that the most
distant seat will be only 170 feet from
the ro-trum. whereas in the old Exposition
Building some of the seats were 350 feet
from the speaker's stand. The arrange

The preachers of Springfield, 111., are

following is a telegram from Springfield
which shows that the ministers have
caught their game: "All the leading
ministers of the city, and a large number
of ladies representing the Woman's
Christian Temperance Union were pres
ent. When the time for calling the cases
arrived none of the defendants appeared
and they were fined upon their bonds.
Before the delegation of ministers and
Vidies had left the room, however, Tom
Brewer, a leading gambler, entered the
court room in an excited condition and
demanded in a loud voice to know what
all the cranks wanted, referring to the
ministers antl ladies present. Not wait
ing for nn ap.swer, he turned fiercely up
on Rev. R. G. Ilobbs, threatening to do
him bodily harm if he refused to leave.
After the trial the ministers held a con
ference and it was decided to hold a
public indignation meeting uct. Mon
day." ELECTION FRAUDS.
The declaration of the Ohio Republi
cans in favor of fair and honest elections
throughout the whole country tiuches
an issue of supreme importance. It is
unquestionably true, as they assert, that !
the Democratic party now holds the
Presidency and one branch of Congress
through a systematic suppression of votes
in the Southern States. The fact is no
longer denied, but openly and innocently
pioclaimed by Southern papers and poli
ticians that the colored vote has been
practically removed by fraud and vio
lence, and that they do not propose to
let it have any influence in their affairs.
The Democratic pnrty as a party indorses
and profits by tin nullification of law
antl justice, and has done so for many
years. But the story of wrong and crime
does not stop there. It is not in the
South alone that illegal methods arc em
ployed to achieve Democratic success. A
.-iniilar pojicy prevails to an alarming
extent in the North. In not a single one
of the large cities where the Demociats
have control does a perfectly honest elec-
tion evtr t'ke llacc-
Some of the frauds
that have been discovered in that relation
aro quite equal to any tLac have been
perpetrated in tho South; and in every
instance the guilty parties

can votes antl influences. The Democrat
ic record is one of persistent opposition
to the idea of preventing corruption and

to defeat the popular will and make a

grave dangers to our institutions, and
one that nil good citizens should be nox

strength and glory of government by the
people, of the people and for the people
without an assurance of integrity and im
partiality in the processes that govern

insist, "Free ond uDtmmtnoled suffrage

fail to give careful attention to this
feature of the situation. It is even more
imnrrtant in its way than the tariff or
any other current question; and the re

This is nt 7:30 on the Brooklyn side.
Alout 75,000 New York business men and
workmen, who use Brooklyn as a bed
room, are getting ready to launch them
selves into New York. At 7:15 the stream
is nt high tide. At two glass covered
boxes within tho spot where three men
are laboring with frantic energy to give
out tickets and make change, two stal
wart men stand to see that every passen
ger deposits a ticket. These men need to
be alert and quick eyed, for 200 persons
per minute are passing by these two glass
ticket boxes. It may seem easy work to
wntch 12,000 tiekets per hour dropped in
to a jrhiss box, but the guards say it has
the eircct of giving one the vertigo.
From 7 o'clock until 8:30 the stream of
humbly clad shop girls and working
women and men is kept steadily up, and
some twenty odd thousand passengers are
carried over tho river. Three cars start
each minute anil a half, but in the sec
onds that they are at a standstill each of
the cars is amply packed with ten tons of
humanity. This rush is kept up until
9:30 o'clock, after which there is a lull,
the number of passengers passing the
ticket offices falling gradually from 12,000
to G.000 per hour. Approaching noon it
is even less on the Brooklyn side, but
after this hour on the New York side tho
thousands that thronged to New York
are hurrying back again, and after 4
o'clock Brooklyn begins to regain its
population at the rate of from 200 to 3C0
PATGOXS OF TTIE FOOTWAY.
Of course these figures deal simply with
the railway. The footpath is less patron
ized now than formerly. There were
3.ii.C01 less persons who used it last year
than the year before, despite the fact that
any one who wishes to buy tickets by the
bunch may walk over the bridge and get
the finest views imaginable for the not
astounding sum of one-lifeh of a cent.
The footway is popular only on very mild
days, when it is the resort favored of good
looking nurses with distracting French
caps, who wheel baby carriages and ad
mire the big policemen. The receipts of
the footway last year amounted to some
thing over $10,000, which w ould scarcely
pay its expenses, and it has been proposed
to make it. free. Thi3 will scarcely be
done, for making it free would be throw
ing it open to tramps or worse charac
ters, and making an increase of police
The bridgo railroad last j-car carried
27.940,313 persons, an increase of 3,911,
040 over the year before, and the receipts
iu money from it were $708,703.79. The
fare is three cents per passage or ten
tickets for twenty-live cents. The general
average of passengers upon the bridge
road is about 90,000 per day, but upon
foggy days, when the ferries are ob
Mructcd, the figures sometimes reach 1C.),
000. In other words enough people pass
over the Brooklyn bridge every day in the
cars to populate three or four towns out
we&t, elect a few congressmen, build
several railroads, get up corners in whea'i
and pork and bring out a presidential car-
SOME MORE STATISTICS.
But there are some more statistics with
which not one person in a hundred even
of those who cross the bridge daily are ac
quainted and familiar. One million forty
seven thousand nine hundred and sixty
eight vehicles crossed the bridge during
last year. Each vehicle is estimated to
carry three passengers. Thi3 estimate is
taken by reason of the number of funerals
that daily pass on their way to Green
wood, the great "City of the ISead." Tho
receipts from vehicles were ? 05,743.20.
The total receipts were 850,724.23. It
may be interesting to know, too, that the
cars during the last year njnde 2,171,4S4
single trips and traveled 2,442,170 miles.
In other words, had the tracks of the
bridge continued right around the world
the bridge cars would have girded the
world pretty nearly 100 times.
The bridge cost 15,000,000. It is
worth it, but it has not yet paid it back.
Its sources of revenue are various. The
stone arches under its approaches have been
walled up and are rented as ware houses.
It charges the telephone and telegraph
companies for laying wires on the bridge.
The total income for the bridge from nil
sources for the year was $938,281.21, and
the net profits were 323,8G4.5G. It has
been necessary to lay out most of this
sum, however, in rolling stock and in pay
ments for real estate. Exactly 2,070,000
lives of humanity were conveyed across
the East river in 1887 without a single
life being lost. That is true enough to
be startling, and startling enough to be
untrne. However, it is true! When you
consider that for a part of the day trains
are running but a minute and a half
apart, and carrying 12,000 passengers per
hour, antl that even at the dullest part
of the day they are but a couple of min
utes apart, this record is simply amaz
ing. New York Mail and Express.
What Killed the Emperor.
The immediate canse of the cold which
proved fatal to the Emperor William was
an accident which happened to him on the
iiight of Saturday, March 8. His physi
cian, Dr. von Lauer, had expressly warned
him against attempting to leave his bea
without assistance; but In order to spare
liis personal .attendants, who. were in an
adjoining room, the emperor ventured to
tlisregard the iujunotion. He got out of
beil safely, but when he was endeavoring
to return his strength failed him and he
fell to the floor. He was unable to raisa
himself, and ere his attendants entered
the room he had contracted a severe chill.
They did what they could for the em
peror's coir fort, bnt he lauuhed at the
mishap, and only besought them: "Don't
say a word to Lauer!" St. James' Ga
