Since the New York Tribune fired its
double shotted charge the other day into
the political viscera of the great civil
service fraud in the White house, the re
mains are hard to recognize. The Trib
une says:
It is whispered that sundry mugwumps
have organized themselyes into a lodge
of sorro.v in order formally to give vent
to their feelings in relation to the awful
havoc wrought by this Tribune gun.
Mr. George William Curtis is understood
to have expressed to the lodge his firm
conviction that the Tribune must have
known that the gun was loaded. We
don't often agree with Mr. Curtis nowa
days, but this conviction of his corres
ponds with our own. We deliberately
loaded that gun for the purpose of rid
lling the record of a bogus reformer.
We took that target excursion on pur
pose. Rumor has it that Oeorge Jones assur
ed the lodge that he never realized to
what a pitcli of perfection the modern
firearm had been brought until he beheld
Mr. Cleveland's truly good reputation
fter the Tribune's gun had been fired.
"I tell you brethren," exclaimed Fagin,
the tears running down his cheeks like
another Jones river, "there actually
wasn't enough left of it to wad a toy
Thy lodge said it would be glad to
hear from Larry Godkin, of the second
ward. But Larry's feelings were much
too painfully deep for coherent utterance.
Ever sice the gun waa fired he has gone
tbout with cotton stufTed in his ears,
muttering under his breaih, "Will the
noise of the gun never cease?" We may
tatc here, for the benefit of Mr. Godkin,
that the reverberations of the report of
that gun will be heard by the voters all
through the campaign.
P. S. A correspondent wants to know
whether in going a gunning last Monday
and making a dead duck of Mr. Cleve
land in his character of "reformer" we
were not violating the game law. We
nuswer, no. The game law does, indeed,
prohibit the shooting of ducks during
certain months. But nothing is said of
lecoy ducks.
The most casual observer cannot fail
to notice the vast strides of improvement
Outing is making under its new manage
ment. Not only do we find each issue to
contain a rich supply of first class articles
descriptive of sport in its various branch
es, but there is an abundant supply of
fiction taking rank with the best publish
ed, and its many illustratins compare are
excellent and compare most favorably
with those in any magazine in the market.
"While the contents of Outing for Au
gust are admirably adapted to this lazy
month, there is nevertheless enough oi
youl-stirring sport to captivate the most
enthusiastic sportsman. The disciple oi
Isaak Walton will read the article, "A
Rare Fish," wondering that such account

the spell will be further enhanced by tin

Peculiarities of the Tarloan SpclN of the
Saurian Tribe.
Tho crocodiles inhabiting the lower parts
of the Brumese rivers are of a very large
size, some of tbem attaining to nineteen feet
in length. A writer, who states he has visited
India, says ho cannot discover the difference
lietvreen the eastern crocodile and the Louisi
ana and Florida alligator or cayman ; that
there is none, in fact, except in name. It is
evident he has not seen any at close quarters,
for there is much difference between the
several varieties. 'Khere are actually twelve
species of the crocodile, eight true, one gavial
and three alligators; these have a specific,
not a general, difference. Those I saw in tho
Granges have long, narrow muzzles and are
called gavials. They are peculiar to that
river, being found nowhere else.
I have met with the saurian tribe in Egypt,
West Africa, India, Burmab, South Amer
ica, Jamaica and the southern states, and
have found that all differ in some particular.
The Burmese name for them is "meejoung."
There is a town ou the left bauk of the Ir
rawaddy called Hinthadah, where I resided
for some months. During tho year previous,
I was informed by the head man of the place,
. over 100 persons were killed by these fero
cious reptiles. There is a ford over the river
at this place, and the crocodiles had an in
convenient habit of lying in wait for those
persons crossing the ford, seizing and carry
ing them off. Not being fond of their food
in a fresh condition, they hide their victims
in the mud at the bottom of the river until
the flesh has gained by keeping a sufficiently
gamey flavor to bo relished by them. Dogs
are a favorite food of theirs, and a crvxxiile
will often land and run after a canine to try
and capture him for his larder. As the rep
tile can only run fast in a straight line, being
too un wieldly to turn quickly, the dog gener
ally contrives to elude his pursuer and make
his escape.
I killed several crocodiles during my stay
in Hinthadah, and had their bides prepared
and tanned, and utilized them for boots and
shoes. Being impervious to wet, I found
them most serviceable during the wet mon
soons. I used to get a Burman to paddle ne
about in a dug out until I caught sight of a
"meejoung" lying on a sand Iwnk, basking
in the sun, when J fcosk a careful aim at their
vulnerable part, their belly, yvhez$ tiv 6cales
are thin, and a conical bullet will erictr jh
ease. A couple of these leadeu pills fired
into this portion of a meejoung's anatomy
will make Lim feel very sick indeed, and he
will soon give up the gho$. On approaching
a dead crockodile. the heavy and ndr?.ting
odor of musk is most nauseating, and it was
a long time betore I became accustomed to
it. Cor. San Francesco Chronicle.
At the J aril In de Planter -The
acclimation of plants is here also well
attended to, and the hot house filled with
graceful palms and tropical flowers surround
ing a lake, terminating with fern covered
rocks bicb shelter a grotto, is one of the at
tractive spots of tt,e garden. Yet for plants,
their variety and extensive cltro carried to
tho highest point of human iugenjili', p,p
must visit the Jardin des Plantes in all ns
details. In these grounds nearly every beau
tiful tf&a, which lends the shelter of its thick
foliage at tiiis season, is the native of sonie
foreign country. An American in this piace
feels quite at home, surrounded fcy pho grand
piano trees, the chestnutj tho walnut jtr.q,
the snow bushes of Virginia and the magiw
lia, all belonging especially to his native
country. A gar.den apart for students
of botany, where not .only tho botanical
names of the plants are given, but each plant
is placarded according to its medicinal, nour
ishing or harmful properties. Here I saw
with pleasure our sweet honeysuckle, attached
to a small trellis work, which gave, hofoy
but a faint idea of tho charm it lends to us,
as it climbs high up along our walls and ver
andas. The hothouses at the Jardin des Plantes
are very numerous and extensive, and there
are still others in construction. The number
of persons employed in earing for the plants
alone would furnish a good aised regiment.

in that of the noble soldier and favorite child
of victory, Philip II. Sheridan.
In the plrit of I hose great leaders and of our

congress owe their existeuce to the suppression
of the ballot by the criminal iiullillcat'.on of the
constitution and laws of the United States,
We are uncromproniisingly in favor of the
American system of protection. We protest
against the destruction proposed by the pre si
dent and his party. They serve the interests
of Kin-one
We accent the issue, and confidently appeal to
the people for their judgment. The" protective
system must be maintained. Its abandonment
has alwava been followed by general disaster
to all interests except those of the uneurer
and sheriff.
We denounce the Mills' bill as destructive to
general business, hjbor. and the farming inter

of the democratic party to place wool on the

country, promote trade, open new and dlieet
markets for our products and cheapen the cost
of transportation. We aflirin this to be far
better for our country than tne democratic
policy of loaning the government's money
without interest to "pet banks."
The conduct of foreign affairs by the present
administration has been distinguished by inef
ficiency and cowardice. Having withdrawn
from the senate all pending treaties effected
by republican administratioi s for the removal
of foreign burdens and restrictions upon our
cummeice and for its extension into a better
market, it lias neither aflected nor proposed
any others in their stead. Professing adher
ence to the Monroe doctrire, it has seen with
idle complacency the extension of foreign In
fluence in Central America and of foreign trade
everywhere among our neighbors. It has re
fused to charter; sanction or encourage any
American organizytlon for constructing the
Nicaragua canal, a work of vtal importance to
the maintenance of the Monroe doctrine and
of our national intluenee in Central and South
America, and uecessaiy fo- the development
of trade w ith our Pacific territory, w ith SouHi
America, aud with the further coasts of the
Pacific Ocean.
We arraign the present democratic adminis
tration for its weak and unpatriotic treatment
of the fisheries question, and its pusillanimous
surrender of all privileges to which our fishery
vessels are en tb led in Canadian ports under
the treaty of 1818, the reciprocate marin
tine legislation of is:io and comity of nations,
and which Canadian fishing vessels receive in
the ports of the United States. We condemn
the policy of the present administration and
tho democratic majority in congress towards
our fivheries as unfriendly aud conspiciom-ly
unpatriot ic and as tending to destroy a valuable
national indust ry and an indispensible resource
of defense against foreign enemy.
The name of American applies alike to all
cilizens of the rep.iblt''. and imposes upon men
alike the same o ligation of obedience to the
laws. At thesame limeci'izenshipis and must
be the panoply and safeguard of him who weais
it, should shieid aud protect him whether high
or low, rich or poor, in all his civil rights. It
should and must afford him protection at home
ami follow and protect him abroad in whatever
laud he may be on a lawful errand.
The men who abandoned the republican (tar
ty in 1884 and continue to adh.cre to the demo
cratic party have deserted not only the cause
of honest government, but of sound finance, of
freedom iand purify of the ballot, but espec
ially have deserted the caue of reform in the
civil service. We will not fall to keep uiir
pledges because t ey have broken theirs, or
because their candidate has broken his. We
therefore repea.' our declaiation of 1884, towit :
The reform of civil service auspiciously begun
under republican administration should be
completed by a further extension of th" reform
sjstem already established by law to all grades
of the service io which it is applied. The spir
it and purpose of reform xhould be observed in
all executive appointments, and all laws at
variance with the object of existing reform Ug
islatton Riiould be repealed, and that the dan
gers to free institutions which lurk in the pow
er of official patronage may be wisely and ef
fectively avoided.
The gratitude of the nation to the defenders
of the union cannot be assured except by laws.
The legislation of congress should conform to
the pledges made by a loyal people, and be so
enlarge.! and exteuded as to prov'de against
the possibility tuat any man who honorably
wore the federal unifo: m shall become an In
mate of an almshouse ot dependent on private
charity. In the presence" of an overflowing
treasury it would b" a public scandal to do less
for those whose valorous service preserved the
government. We denounce the hostile spirit
shown by President Clpyeland in his numerous
vetoes pf 'measure's for pension relief, and the
action pf the democratic of representa
tives in refusing eveji' consideration of general
pension lifjUia.nop.
In support of the principles herewith enun
ciated, we Invite the co-operation of patriotic
men of all parties, especially of all working
men whose prosperity is seriously threatened
by the free trade policy of the present administration.
