THE BATTIiB AND THS ADMINIS-
-After the ba'te ! conies the reward
of tha victors , and the great leaders
nd cr.\tors of the republican party ,
are to day receiving rell-eamed praise
for iluir valuable services in the cam-
pn n which has been brought to such
.1 glorious conclusion. The names of
ConUirg , Jewell , Inersoll and Grant
are oa everyone's lips. Less promi
nent workers in the can o trill not ba
forgo'tcn , and the party will yield iis
hanlis and grateful recognition to
every captain and lieutenant who aid
ed in tecuring the grand result of
Tuesday's great conflict. Bat while
fie immediate participants in the
ounpaign should and will receive the
nations thankstho great services of the
administration of President Hayes to
the republican pirty must not be for-
; otten. Wo express our candid be
ief when we assert that to it , as much
as to any other influence , is duo the
triumph of the republican party and
.ho vindication of republican princi
ples in the late elections.
Four years ago President Hayes
elected to a seat in the White
House , and in the succeeding March
inaugurated as president. No
republican will deny that public con
fiience had been greatly shaken in
the republican party. Large defec
tions in New York , from the rcpu1 It
em ranks threw the electoral
V ito of that state agaimt the party in
power. Decreased majorities in near
ly every northern state , testified to
the popular distrust. With no in
tention to disparage General Grant , o
whose Ecrvlcss to the nation and to the
party , the people are justly proud , i
must bo Eaid that his second term was
not endorsed by the people. He cam
to Washington backed by a heavy re
publican majority in both senate , am
house. He turned over to his sncccs
ser a congress democratic in hot ]
branchea. The now administration
entered into office under peculiarly
harassing circumstances. The demo
cratic congress had adjourned withou
voting a dollar for the army , and re
fused to provide for their necessitic
until troops were withdrawn from tb
polls. In Louisiana and South Garo
lini double governments were strug
gling for supremacy. Tn the nortl
there was general dcpresion amen ]
the industrial classes , nnd grave fear
were entertained Of the ontcomo o
the resumption schemes. From all
quarters came the cry that resumption
was au ! mposibility , that another
piuic would be precipitated nnd that
the treasury could not sustain pay-
menta of specie. Although both par
ties in their platform ? had pledged
themselves to civil service reform , the
attempts of the new administration
to carry out the pledges of tha party
brought upon them a shower of abuse
and | arrayed its leasers in thu ai-nalo
againFS it. Although President Uayos
was only following in the fColstepa
if Grant Who had refused to use the
military to aid Packard and Chamber
lain , and admitted that ho would have
been forced to do exactly what the
new administration did , tha leaders
who dared not assail the civil service
made the southern policy a pretext
for heir bitter opposition. The pres
ident was denounced as another Andy
Johnson and Tylsr , many of hh best
appointments failed of confirmation
in the senate through calluiion of dir-
aflftislcd republicans with the demo
crats , and civil service reform was
blocked at every stop so that finally it
beamoa mere sham. In the facs of
all these obstacles President Hayes
ana his cabinet quietly but firmly
kapt the wheels of government
out of the old ruts which
had so nearly wrecked if ,
and at the expiration of the third
year there came a universal acknowl
edgement of the wisdom of the much
derided policy of the administration.
The magnanimity shown by Hayes to
the south was not reciprocated. The
rebel brigadiers , made more arrogant
by generous treatment , aroused a general -
oral conviction among the loyal masses
of the north that their professions of
loyalty to the government were hollow
shams and infused a determination in
the people to rally once mr > ro around
the republican standard. Specie re
sumption , which had been made the
bugbear of inflationists and timid time
servers within our own pirty ,
was accomplished without the
slightest thock. John Sherman's
signal ability as a financier shone
conspicuously in his funding of the
national debt at a. . very low rate of
interest and placed over credit on a par
wuliEogland. Resumption instead
of bringing ruinTbrought confidence ;
confidenca brought a return of pros
perity nnd prosperity made a change
in the administration cf this govern
ment undesirable. This was the key
stone of republican. success. It
brought mora votes for James A
Garfield than all the oratory of cam
paign speakers. It was mainly be
cause the present republican
administration is clean handed , be
cause under it no public scandals or
great official corruption have been
brought to light , and because the
country was everywhere experiencing
unexampled prosperity that the repub
lican party achieved victory on Tues
day. This paper is under no obliga
tions to the present administration fcr
patronage or office. No ono connected
with THE UEE has nsked President
Hayes for an office , and the editor of
this paper distinctly stated to the
president that ho never would be a
candidate for any office within his
gift , but we voluntarily accord to the
president and his administration the
just praise which is duo to them for
their share in transmitting the reins of
government to republican euccecsors.
Ninety Miles an Hour.
K w York Sun.
There was vurned , out from the
Grant Locomotive Works in Pattr-
BouN. J. , a few days ago , a new loco
motive of peculiar construction , in
tended for the Pitt burgFort
Wayne & Chicago railroad. Kugene
Fontaine , the inventor , claims that
this locomotive can be made to go
ninety miles an hour , while the ma
chinery is run no faster thanihat of
an ordinary locomotive travelling at
the rate of eixty miles an hprjr ,
machinery is all on top of the boiler ,
instead of under it. The driving wheeL
rests on another wheel , which is'
turn rests on the track. " This lower
wheel has two rinv , one a foot smaller
than the other. The outer rim touches
the track , and the inner or smaller rim
lupporti the driving wheel. The mo
tion of the driviiig wheel thus com
municated is magnified by this ar
rangement so that tbe lower wheel
turns one-third faster than the _ driv
ing wheel , and BO the speed is in
creased. The smaller rim of _ the
lower wheel bears to the larger rim a
elation similar to that of a very large
hub to any whesU Of courze any rate
of motion communicated to such a
hub is greatly magnified ai the
periuhtry of the wheel. In the same
way the motion of the driving wheel
"n this case is magnified by the pecu-
iar arrangement of the wheel it rests
upon. Mr. Fontaine believes that his
locomotive , if it were not for the in
creased resistance of the air , could be
run at the rate of 170 miles an hour.
He expects it to make ninety miles an
hour easily. The machinery of the
new locomotive , which stood propped
ip on blocks , wag put in motion on
Saturday with satistactory results.
Many railroad men have visited it.

Every few days n dispatch or letter
from Rjme give * us intel'igenceof ' the
health of Leo XIII. He , like most
of the Popes who have preceded him ,
is very infirm of body , and his end nt
any time would not -urprise the pub
lic. The sovereign Pontiffs have from
remote ages been principally engaged
in dying , and even Pie None , whose
longevity amazed everybody , and was
a glaring exception in Papal history ,
was reported moribund continually
Jnring t'io last twenty years of his
life. But , beginning with the
lifth century , it i < remarkable
how brief the reign of most of
the popes has ' .been. Zisimua , the
G reek , lasted hardly a yearjj Boniface
I. , about 4 years ; Gelasius 1. , 4 year/a ;
John L , 3 years ; BonifaceII , 2year * ;
Agapetus 1 , 1 year ; Sabintanus , 5
years ; Boniface III. , 1 year ; Deodatus
1 , 4 years ; Sevcrinns , 2 years ; John
IV. , 3 year ; Eugenius I. , 3 years ;
Dominns I. , 2 years ; Leo II. , 2 years ;
Benedict It. , 1 year ; John V. , 1 year ;
Conou , 1 year ; John VI. , 3 years ;
Sisinius , less than 1 yrar ; Stephen IE ,
loss than 1 year ; Stephen III. , 4 years ;
Stepnen V. , 1 year ; Eugenius II. , 3
years ; Valentinus , not 1 year : Martin
IL , 2 years ; Adrian III. , 1 ye'ar ,
and Romanus , Thedorus , H. , acd
John IX. were all elected , and the
first two died , within a twelve-month.
During the seventhcentury there were
20 Popes ; during the ninth and elev
enth there were 19. The average reign
of the Popes has scarcely been morn
than 6 years , and those who have
reigned 10 or 12 years have been very
few. The explanation cf the brevity
of the Holy .Fathers lies in the
alleged fact that the cardinals , as a
rule extremely ambitious and intense
ly anxious to sit in the papal chair ,
uually vote for those who are very
old and unsound of body. As popes
of this kind are likely to die soon the
cardinals have another chance for the
triple crown. Good health and com
parative youth are almost certain to
prevent any cardinal from elevation
to thoBpj > ntificial see , whatever his
mental gifts and moral training. The
caidinul who promises to die quickest
has generally the best prospect of be
coming the successor of the so-called
vice-gerent of God on earth. Cardi
nals are very much like other men ,
and even popes are so human that it
is deemed necessary to pronounce
them infallible by dogma , so that their
common humanity may be concealed
from the over-faithful laity.
The Canadian Pacific Railway.
The Canadian Minister to London
has been prompted by recent articles
in American journals to assure the
people that there was not the slight
est danger of losing Brirish Columbia
in case the road is not finished. The
Canadian Minister may be right in
his estimate of the bonds which bind
British Columbia to Canada , but in.
matters of opinion no man can assume
to be infallible. It is beyond dispute
that British Columbia was induced to
become a part of the Canadian Fed
eration by the agreement on the part
of the Canadian government to con
struct the road now under considera
tion. The original agreement was tfiat
the road should be finished by 1883 ,
but the Western Province is willing to
waive the condition cf the time so
ling as the work is not abandoned.
That the Province would consider it
self bound by at contract which the
other party fails to fulfill , is an as
sumption which the Canadian Minis
try may feel justified in making , but
which other people will ciercite their
individual judgment about accepting
hundred and seventy-five mile * have t
, already .been completed , andthatsfcl
"trains are expscted to rnajOverj yejHi

Of course the Minister knosT3wint _
basis there ia for this expectation ,
though he does not thinfc'it ' ueCCssary
tn go into details. The question of
climate is dismissed with a jBoacons-
fie3 ! wave of the , hand , as'if If were
hardly worthy" of a sensibleNman's
consideration The Valleys of < ftte-
.Saskatchewan and. JLthebosca are
represented as wonderfully fer-
ttie , and the intimation'co&veyed tEat
they are only moderately cold. On
this point-a little-personsexperience }
might enlighten the Canadian minis ; ,
tor. It ia known that the wintdrs ere
long and eevere , and the summers so
sheri that a late spring -OT an early
autumn endangers crops. That these
valleys will be settled in time there is
no doubt , bat not so thickly while
there is BO much land to be had for
the taking ten or fifteen degrees nearer
the equator. The minister admits
that there are 600 or 600'miles to con
struct through a comparatively unset
tled and rather mountt inous country ,
which , to eay the least , Is a mild
way of stating a fact. Reference
is made 'to the opinion freely ex
pressed , t satit would be more profit
able for the road to stop each of the
Rocky Mountains , but it is replied
that in that case it would be only a
local and nbt a through line. It is a
through line -that British Columbia
bargained for , and it might not be
well to put that province off with a
local line which would not touch its
border. It is , however , a matter of
much doubt if tbo Minister's expscta
tion of securing through business by
outbidding more southern lines will
be realized. The obstacles which the
Canadian Pacific will have to overrun ,
in addition to those common to more
southern roads , will constitute an exp -

"GO WEST , YOUNG MAN. "
SOME OF THE PEOS AND CONS OF EMI-
GKATIO.V TO THE MINISO CAMP.
Z. U White , in Provldenw trcssl
It is a good rule for every young
man who is doing moderately well tc
make no change without "the most
careful consideration. But it is trua
that there are wider fields for enter
prise 'and ' more abnndant opportuni
ties for making makingmoney in some
parts of the Far West , especially for
persons who only possess a limited
capital , than in most of the cities and
towns on the Atlantic coast. The
risks are greater , the expense'of con
ducting every kind of business is in
creased , and , of necessity , the profits
are , as they ought to be , larger.
In ' , ho first place , no young ] man
should Ihink of going to the mining
regions of the Rocky Mountains to
engage in any kind of business unless
he is content to "rough It. " I do
not wish to be understood by this re
mark to convey the idea that all the
people who live in mining camps have
few of the comforts and none of the
luxuries ot life. I have seen ele
gant furniture * , "expensive mutical
instruments , bocki , paintings
and bric-a-bric in the leg
cabin of a successful miner
at the foot of some rugged mouriain
and far from the center of trade and
population of tha gold and silver
country , But the man who goes
the 1 mountains expecting to find these
; thinjs ii in great danger of beinsc.dis-
appointed. He is much more likely
to i have to live in a tent or a rude llbg
cabin , tn cook his Wu food'and to
engage in kinds of labor which ho
would scorn to do in the East. The
West is no place , for4drones or namby-
* * - Again , no young man should go to
the mining regior/s / Ntiihont capital
unless ho is sure ot'employment. .
IScery thriving mining camp of the _
vest is thronged with men who have
nothing" to do , and wh'o hava followed
heurowd of excited fortune-seekers
expecting to pick up gold nugqe'a or
silver bricka In the gulches or on the
lill sides , only to ba disappointed.
Pho cost of living in frontier towns is
rery great , and the expense of-travel-
ng , except on foot , ' even greater. A
stage driver on the Liadville road ,
not two years ago , told two passsn-
gers who complained that they could
not get outside seats on the coach ,
where they could view the scenery ,
: hat they would have ample opportu
nity to admire the Deanery when they
walked back. Minin ? is the last thing
that eastern men should undertake to
engage in until they have learned
something about the business by liv
ing some months in minim ; camps and
carefully studying the subject. There
are five hundred claims located and
recorded for every one that ever paya
a dollar to the discoverer or purchaser
of them , and yet it would be difficult
to find a prospector in the west who
would not make a stranger believe , if
ho could , that every one of his proc
pect holes was a bonanza ,
X would advise no young man to go
to the B 2cky mountains with a stock
of goods purchased in the east , ex
pecting to become a merchant there.
The cissies of goods sold in mining
camps are very different from those
for which there is a demand in eastern
cities and towns not cheaper and
poorer , but different , often better and
more expensive. If any ono thinks
Of going intolrade in the west heth/m'd '
place his money wliero he can com
maiid it instantly , and then go to
eome center nnd there becomes a clerk
in a store If be can qot a situation.
This will not only give him an oppor
tunity to learn what classes of goods
are most sold , but ho will also be on
the ground ready to take advantage ol
any excitement that may arise. It
often happens that a "rich itrike" is
