Tiik concessional district republican
convention meets at Lincoln tins evening.
The call for a float convention to 1 e
held at Weeping Water on Sept. 2(5, 1888.
was not received until this morning, too
late for our weekly, Wftt it appears in
nnoth;r column of this paper.
Mr. Cleveland, ly his message, for
which I sincerely honor him, has chal
lenged the protected industries of th
country to a fight ef extermination. The
fight is to the death. Senator George
"All raw material free" is what the
democrats arc shouting at present. It t
their last cry, for by "raw material" they
mean all material perfected by the far
mer of the north, like wool, flax, hemp,
broom corn, etc. Only southern raw
material like Jsugar, rice and so on
to be protected. But at the rate demo
cracy is deserting itself, there will soon
be nothing said about raw material and
they will all swear that they never did
gay anything about it.
The New York Sun (dem.) predicts
that Mr. Cleveland will fail to carry the
vote of Buffalo this fall. In discussing
the situation there the Sun says that no
one predicts that the president will poll
the vote he did in 1884. He got 1,400
plurality, though the country is nominal
ly republican by 2,000 votes, and some
times goes more than 3,000 republican.
The president is nothing like so strong
here as Gov. Hill today, or as he was
when, in 18S4, local pride and interest
led him to draw many yoies from the re
publican party. It is predicted that he
will loe the county by about 1,400 or
2,000 votes, while Hill may possibly
carry it by 1,000 votes.
The motion to reconsider the Chinese
exclusion bill has failed in the senate by
a vote of 21 to 20 barely a quorutr.
That the passage of the bill, under the
circumstances, was a grave blunder mri-t
generally be conceded; but little sym
pathy need bs wasted on the president
because of the plight in which over-zealous
democrats have put him in the hope
of reaping some partisan advantage. To
sign or not to sign ? not often has Mr,
Cleveland been compelled to face a more
embarrassing question. Perhaps, follow
ing the precedent made by himself in
connection with the river and harbor bill,
he will donoth:ng,aud let the bill become
a law without his intervention. But the
alternative is hardly to be preferred to
cither of tin others. N. Y. Tribune.

Advice to Tlioso Idio Write.
Newspaper writers unquestionably sow seed
from which great harvests are garnered, but
they never hare the satisfaction of seeing it,
or very rarely, at least. There arc thousands
of young, middle aged and elderly men writ
ing on the newspapers of the world. They
are impersonal. No one knows them, no one
cares for them outside of their immediate
circles. Now and then a man, by force of ex
pression, by virility of idea, becomes recog
nized among the members of his profession,
and obtains, to a certain degree, celebrity,
but all that passes away when he goes. We
have had great men in metropolitan journal
ism, whoso names you never heard of, whose
history you could not give the first letter in
It seems to ma wise for literary men, for
men of thought, In whatever profession,
whether in journalism, medicine, law, theol
ogy, the arts and sciences, to have this idea
in mind: perpetuate your work iu permanent
form. Don'fc bo content with newspaper ar
ticles alone, don't be content with preach
ing nloiu, don't be content to practice in
medicine or law or working successfully
along the lino of art and science, unless it be
in painting or in sculpture, but put in per
manent form your thoughts. Publish your
sermons, publish noted cases you lost or saved
in tbo sick chamber or in court, gather to
gether your fugitive pieces from the news
papers, or, better still, write some kind of a
useful, thought breeding book, and you do
stand a chance, then, of being remembered
after you have gone, or at least of having
something better said of you on the day of
your funeral than that you were "a funny
old man." Joe Howard in Boston Globe.
Interrupting a Religions Meeting.
The wild country of Wales is a land flow
ing with salmon and trout streams; in proof
whereof they tell a story of the wild little
valley of Llanbadarn, where one Sunday by
the Lrookside the good minister of the lonely
parish had taken down his little flock for
bapt ism. Just as ho was placing his hand in
blessing upon a recent convert's head, he sud
denly ilucked it away under the benediction
and ia tones of the wildest excitement cried,
"Mont I've got him! I've got hiral" The
would be convert was floundering on his
knees and bands in a pool; the dominie looked
round for his deacons; they had forgotten
time end place and had plunged in likewise;
the Welsh maidens on the banks, awaiting
their turn, tucked up their skirts and took to
the water o3 welL The secret of the whole
excitement was a big salmon which had
darted "under a stone in front of the congre
gation; catching the fever, the minister him
self plunged in and chased the salmon around
the pool; after the twenty-three pounder was
landed the service was resumed. Boston
The Models of Pails.
The models have a whole street to them
selves in one part of Paris and their name
is legion. They are almost all Italians, and
form a distinct and ever increasing class.
They begin their professional career as little
children of 3 or 8 years; and if they have
the good luck to possess a good figure or
characteristic features or coloring, they will
probably continue it until they die. Ono
man who posed for us as an abbe assured
me that he bad sat for every picture and bust
of Napoleon I that had been produced for
fifteen years. Another was always employed
for religious subjects, and had been the
model for Christ in many famous pictures.
One dark browed Italian woman was in all
exhibitions as Judith; and another, was the
conventional Mary for a convent altar piece.
With these thero are also a few negroes, who
ure always in great request. Demorest'a
Ceo. Sheridan' Flard Thinking.
No man ever considered his plans more
thoughtfully than Sheridan, and bis most
dashing exploits were the result of former
calra deliberation. Shortly before his death,
referring to this subject, be remarked: "I
know 1 have got a reputation for dare devil
try and dash as a soldier. I do not deserve
that reputation and I don't want it. I never
undertook to do anything without bestowing
on it all the thought at my command." But
iha thinking once done, Sheridan believed in
hard fighting. Oaca a Week.

AT TILE DOG POUND.
EXECUTION OF THE DEATH SEN
TENCE ON UNFORTUNATE CURS.
The Dot; Catcher' Method of Capturing
Cnliceimcd and Unmuzzled Urates The
, Fatal Noose and the Green Wagon.
Daugerons and Painful Duties.
A cur of most un propitious countenance,
and with a profusion of white and liver
colored spots on his hide, was snarling at the
corner of Hoyne avenue and AJadison street.
A little boy w ith bare legs passed the crea
ture, and tbo cur snapped at him. The same
instant, though, there was a slight whir and
the dog catcher's fatal noose was around the
homely brute's neck, tightening itself in
stantly. Without uny further trouble the
man carried his prey to the peculiarly shaped
wagon, which is the hue of jealousy, and
thrust it into the forward compartment.
Thero were about a score of other unlucky
curs in it, and as the lid opened and the
newly arrived tumbled among them, there
was an instantaneous concert made up of
yelps, whines and backing barks. Then
the lid closed once more and utter dark
ness and silence reigned in the com
partment. The dogs were stunned aud
thoroughly cowed by the absence of light
and the strange situation. The wagon rattled
on and a few blocks further on in a side
street another dog was snared, but this time
thero was some trouble. The little boy to
whom the dog belonged showed fight and did
his best to wrest his unlicensed and un
muzzled, hence unlawful, playmate out of
the strong grasp of the dog catchers. But,
of course, ho couldn't do it, and the catcher
extended a hearty invitation to the boy to
como out to the dog iound and get bis dog.
"It'll only cost you S5. 75," he said. The little
boy at once began to shed tears and to run
home to tell bis rna about it. But the wagon
was, meanwhile, a mile away, and an hour
later it drove up in the rear of that new and
somewhat uncouth appearing building which
serves for a dog pound in Chicago.
"What's your catch?" asked the pound
keeper. "Forty-seven, mostly no good, but there is
one valuable pointer among the lot," was the
reply which tho catcher made.
"That makes V26 for the day altogether.
And that's a good showing. Last month we
caught 1,300 altogether, of which number 204
were redeemed, the rest killed."
The west side wagon was the last to come
in, the other two from the north aud south
sides having already delivered up theirquota
for tho day. Thero are seven dog catchers
out all the time with tho three wagons, and
each wagon is accompanied by an officer,
who sees to it that things are done fair and
square. It will not surprise many wheu it is
stated that the doe catchers' life is not a
happy one. lie is cursed and sworn at from
sunrise till sundown, and ho gets very little
thanks for fulfilling his dangerous mid pain
ful duties. And when it is said "painful" it
is said advisedly. For these catchers are, de
spite their practice and their skill, bitten
quite frequently. Two of tho best of them
were bitten severely the other day, one on
the face and the other had his hand chewed
up pretty thoroughly. But they don't care.
The snare they use is, by the way, as sim
ple a contrivance as it is elleetive. It is
made of strong but very elastic brass wire,
with a handle on oue end and made into a
rurining loop. To throw it over the head of
a dog is an instant's doing. And once over
it the loop tightens immediately so as to
choke out any spirit of resistance in the re
fractory dog. The wagons which serve as
the temporary receptacle for the "catch"
are made to hold about forty dogs of as
sorted sizes. The forward bin is for tho
small dogs, the rear one for the larger ones.
They are closed with lids.
There were just 075 dogs in the pound
when tho reporter called at the pound the
other day. Of that number, a short while
after, but 500 remained. The other 175 had
been sent to the place where all bad, i. e. un
licensed and unmuzzled, dogs are sent to in
Chicago. The way it was done was this: The
175 condemned were in one large kennel to
gether immediately adjoining the death
chamber. They were a sorry looking lot,
and many of them looked as if they knew
what awaited them. One aged old sinner of
a mongrel, half poodle dog, half shepherd,
and with a few more strains of other breeds
in him, sat there in the corner all alone by
himself. Ilis shaggy head was poised in a med
itative manner, and he calmly contemplated
the motley crowd of fellow sufferers with the
air of an ancient philosopher. When any
dog in his vicinity whined or barked be
looked at him in a mildly reproachful man
ner. He did not stirf rom his corner until
the fatal moment came.
Preparations for the wholesale execution
having beeu made, the sentence of death
passed on these 175 was carried out sw-if tly
and without a hitch. A good hot charcoal
fire having been made in the large stovo in
the adjoining death chamber, tho whole
seven dog catchers entered the kennel. On
seeing them the doomed dogs, with that in
stinct which is nearly always infallible, set
up a most unearthly howl, piteous to hear.
The men were not disconcerted by that.
Gripping a dog by each hand they flung
them, pell mell, into a capacious vat
whicu stood in the death chamber, but
opened on ono side into the ken
nel. Within a few minutes that vat was
crowded to the lid with 175 snarling, whining,
barking curs. Then a few handf uls of pow
dered sulphur were thrown on the charcoal
fire, and the fumes from this were directly
conveyed into the vat by the stovepipe,
which ended in the vat itself. Almost in
stantly the deafening noise ceased. The
fumes did their work so quickly and so well
that two minutes sufficed to kill every one of
the 175 dogs. Next the door of the vat open
ing: into the rear yard of the building was
swung and the 175 canine carcasses were
quickly loaded on a wagon and aonveyed to
a barge fertilizing works. Thus ended life's
fitful fever for these 175. Their places in the
kenne were at once taken by another hun
dred of mongrel dogs, likewise put on the
death list, but their execution was postponed
another forty-eight hours. The whole thing
is done in rotation'and according to a sys
tem. Chicago Herald.
Make Telegraph, Poles Ornamental.
Telegraph poles are about as unsightly as
anything that now straddles across our coun
try, They are getting to be so numerous
that some device shouil be thought of to
conceal or cover them. If nothing better can
be done let them be painted green. But it is
quite possible to grow vines on them of sorts
that will make them ornamental, but will
cot reach the wires. At the present rate of
increase these poles will never be out of
sight in any well settled part of the bind. In
Brazil nature is said to have taken the mat
ter in hand, and is covering not only the
poles but the wires. Thousands of little
mistletoes take root in the air after lodging
on the wires, and although soon dying, they
give better lodgment to other seeds, and, so a
green fringe is created along the line. It does
not interfere with transmission at alL How
ever, we con got along with naked wires if
the poles are put to ornamental use. Globe-Democrat.

CIVIL. SERVICE KSiOKM.
The men who abjioioned the republican n;:r-
ty in lssi and continue 10 adhere to the demo
cratic party have deserfed not only the cause
of honest government, but of sound finance, of
freedom and pumv of the ballot, but espec
ially have deserted th caueof reform In the
civil service. We whl r.vt tail to keep our
pledges because t' cy have broken theirs, or
because their candidate has broken his. We
therefore repea our declaration of icsi. towit :
1 lie reform or civil service auspiciously bf gun
linger republican administration should be
ccnpleted by a further extension of th reform
sistem already established uv law to all grades
of the service to which it Is applied. The spir-
t and purpose oi reform snouid tie observed in
all executive appointments, and all laws at

The legislation of congress should conform to
the pledges made by a loyal people, and be so
enlarged and extended as to p''de against
the possibility that any man who honorably
wore the federal uniform shall become an In
mate or an almshouse or dependent on t rivate
charity. In the presence of an overfiowinjf,
treasury it would b a public ecandai to do 1pm
