GOVERNOR FORAKER is reported as
saying "that the American public must
have either a hero or a victim. "
THE President remarked to a visitor :
"Tain tired. " The people by a large
majorityvould be jilad to see him take
a long rest.

MR. ELAINE is reported to have once

there is no gratitude. Politics means

XEAL DOAV says , "Democrats are
showing a remarkable capacity for
blundering , and I believe Republicans
will again elect the President. "

THE latest spook story is to the effect
that a man who cheated a contractor
died soon after. His ghost came back
and apologized for the villainy commit
ted in the flesh. Xot much good in that
story. If the spook had brought back
the money and paid it to the defrauded
man , it would have been a great hit.
But a spook that only comes back and
'fesses up is of no material advantage
to the world and should be frowned
THE evil days have come when the
dealer shall say , I am sick of this. At
the rising of the sun he goeth to his
place and no man interfcretli with his
slumbers. He sitteth all day like a bot
tle of castor oil , but the people of the
sheckcls come not nigh him. He ad-
vertiseth not his wares and his face is
forgotten on the face of the earth. Who
hath dried apples ? Who hath gingham ?
Who hath baking powder without end ?

THE way in which Cleveland is veto
ing pension bills clearly indicates that
he is not the soldier's friend , and this
fact will be remembered by the boys in
blue in 1888.
THAT offensive smell that is spread
ing over the country comes from one of
the rottenest administrations that ever
disgraced the American people. Incli-
THE Nebraska press excursion , by
reason of inability to procure Pullman
cars , has been postponed until about the
middle of August , the date to be an
nounced hereafter. The trip may posj
sibly extend to California.
THE veto is Cleveland's strong card ,
because it is the only thing he can do
that resembles originality. He is work'
ing it to the fullest extent for the rea-1

impression that he can thereby convince '

CLEVELAND continues sending in his
vetoes of bills , for the relief of old sol
diers , with the intelligence and compla

the smoke of battle afar off. while those j

POLITICIANS in Ohio are puzzled to
know why , under Democratic rule , the
Penitentiary of the State always runs
in debt , and under Republican rule has i
a surplus. The last Democratic year it
came out § 200,000 short. This year ,
under Republican rule , it pays its way
and has money to spare. It may be

COMMISSIONER SPARKS has just re
ceived another clear knock down from
Secretary Laraar and it practically set
tles the practice for the settlor against
everything involved in Sparks' orders
and circulars as to the order of proof in
cases of entries. Mr. Lainar decides
that where an entry has beeu reported
as fraudulent by one of Sparks' spies ,
and a hearing has boon ordered by
Sparks , the "special agent" making the
report must make his report first and it
must be sufficient to make a prima facie
case. Until that is done the eutrymen
need make no proof whatever and when
in such a case , if the agent fails the
local land officers must dismiss the case
and kick the special agent out of court.
This is precisely what Congressman
Laird has been contending for all winter
and it is just what Sparks has by orders
and circulars attempted to refuse to the
eutrymen. Laird is ahead by a large
majority. THE TumrxK is constrained
to take a little stock in Lucius Quiutus
Cassius , who is beginning to show some
indications of horse sense , if not of
transcendent legal lore. As to the
yclept general , he is no less the super
lative long-earned quaruped he has ever
been since his induction into office.
