The editors of Tlio Herald and 1
publican , who wore dumb-founded
the torrriblo disaster that overU
their crow on Tuesday , have rcc
ored sufficiently to raise the hue t
cry of "Fraud ! Fraud ! Kraudl" 1

btlh cry "Wolf" at the same memo
Dr. Miller says that there "is c
dontly serious ground for the cha :
of fraud in respect to the method o
ployed to vote unregistered men

In the second and third wards is '
liovcd to have been altogether t

also charged that nhoso nflldavitswi

There is no doubt affidavits wi

lioro can bo no doubt as to the voi
the people in that respect , but
lie defeated candidates desire to co ;

It is a serious question whothi
icoulalivo prices in grain and pn
isions.aro of any real benefits tq 01
roducora. Iuring the past winti
iHlions of bushels of grain have bee
ickod up in elevators and storohousi
iroughout the country. A sti'o :
: op and the prospoctsiof a largo fo ;
ign demand at once raised Iho prie
F all cereals to a limit higher Urn
ad boon known for years. A "co :
or'1 in wheat , lard and pork was in
lodiatoly formed by capitalists i
archaso in largo quantities and hoi
ir an advance , and within a fo
lonths over thirteen millions of busl
Is of grain were securely locked 01
E the market. Grain rose steadily
nd the prices obtained by our farn
rs recompensed them handsomol
fen with a shorter crop than usui
> r the market. That there was
resent gain to the fanner was admi
d by many. The question prcss <
self whether the future will novo <
eve the advanced prices to lm\
ion dearly purchased by the pn
icors of the country.
In the first place there is great dai
: r that the speculative high prices c
o past winter have greatly in
ired our foreign market. Th

During five months ending Febru :
1. Great Britain recoccn
from British India , Hus
and Germany nearly 13,000,000 bin
ola moro wheat than during the sa :
period of the previous year. Th (
thirteen million bushels have lain
the whila in our storehouses and c
valors , and would have been Ink
from us at good paying prices , a
the cash returned , had gambli
speculators not prevented it. A
what is worse , not only have m
sources of supply been opened , a
larger production stimulated to co
polo with us in the future , but Grc
Britain has practically secured and h
within siqht so largo a stock that '
are likely to lese this season > the si
of much Wo have to spare , Oth
figures show that up to February
Great Britain had already secured
wheat and flour for consumption , 2 ,
703,530 Ibs , , moro than at the sat
date last year ; a < JO02,800 Ibs. , mo
than in 1880 ; and 1(4,448,4)2 ! It
moro than in 1870 , Yet with tl
fact before us , with relatively larg
stocks on hand hero than at the sat
date last year , the speculators won
delude the public into believing th
the present or higher prices will pi
vail ; and they will keep this up un
they inveigle enough ulambs" to to
off their hands their enormous spec
lativo holdings and contracts.
The same effects are noticcablo
our other staple products , especial
lard , pork and bacon. The only a
vantage -which appears is that a few
our producers succeeded in realizing
little better prices than would1 ha
prevailed without the speculati
mania. But as the Agriculturist poin
out , "this single present ga
is quito likely to bo oils
in the future by the gre
stimulus given to wheat culture :
[ ndia , Australia , southeastern Europ
northern Africa , and elsewhere , whit
will compete with us hereafter in tl
European markets ; and our farmo
are thus likely to lese in the end fi
moro than they have gained by tl
great grain speculation of 1881-2 ,
High prices , which destroy a mark- -
and frighten away purchasers , are m
profitable in the end , and if this turi
out to bo the result of the "corne
ng" operations in our largo cities 01
armors will have none but the spoci
atom to thank for the result.
The nomination of Hoiuy M. Tt
or as secretary of the interior ar
Win. E. Chandler as secretary of tl
navy complete President Arthur
cabinet. It won generally concedi
hat Robert Lincoln would remain ,
bo head of the war department , or
10 is the only member of the Ga
iold cabinet retained by Garfield
ucccssor. It was eminently propi
or President Arthur to select as h
ounsollors men whoso political viov
ro in accord with his own. Wil
ho exception of Mr. Chandler , tl :
abinot is made up from what
cnown as the Grant and Conklin
( ring of the republican party , and i
ull harmony , politically , with tli
resident. Mr. Chandler was Mi
Maine's ablest champion at Chicagc
ut this concession to the Blaine win
f the party will not meet with favc
rom any class of republicans wh
csiro to see a clean handed ndminif
ration. Mr. Chandler is reputed t
0 second to no man in thi
ountry as a political organizoi
ut does not 'enjoy popula
onfidenco as a man to bo trustd
nth the responsibility devolving on
abinet officer. The proposed revivn
f the navy , which will involve 01
utlay of over twenty millions wil
llbrd temptations and opportunitie
or jobbery which
may become i
ourco of scandal under Mr. Chand
or that would relied dishonor upoi
ho republican party , and bring dis
; race on the administration. Tin
election of Henry M. Teller as socro
ary of the interior will also moo
rith little favor among republican
rho desire to BOO the affairs of thi ,
; overnmont administered in the inter
st of the people rather than corporati
nonopohes. Mr. Toller's former em
iloyinent a8 attorney of the Unioi
'ftoifio , coupled with tjio fact that thi
'acilio railway managers have urgec
is appointment , cannot .fail to cause
rave concern.
President Arthur has committed ui
npardonablo blunder in placing the
itorior department under control ol
110 land grant railroads. Mr. Telloi
light have filled any other cabinet
osition without detriment to the pub'
c interest , but he cannot in the
aturo of things discharge his obliga-
ons to his railway backers , except a !
10 expense of the people of the Uni-
id States.
It would have boon moro satisfac-
ny to the section west of the Mis-
) uri to have continued tl coo years
inger without a special representative
1 the cabinet than to ba misrepro.

Mit. EADS is an excellent lobby !
and his friends in Washington f
confident that the ship railway t
will pass both houses of congress
decided majorities. There are soi
strong arguments used in behalf
the measure , { treat stress being laid
the point that the government
asked to do nothing at a vcntu :
Captain Eada is required to build t
miles of railway with the necessa
terminal works , and to carry a vosi
that distance by rail before any liab
ity is assumed by the govornmci
while the entire railway must bo co
structod and a vessel of six thousai
tons transported from ocean to occi
before the government liability o
cceds moro than ten millions of d (
lars. When the road is completed tl
government guarantees fifty millie
of the company's bonds , which i
dobtodncss is to bo discharged by tl
company within fifteen years. Du
intf ninoty-nino years the compai
agrees to transport free all govcri
mont storoi , mails , ships and troop
Although several prominent enginoc
declare Captain Bads' scheme foaslbl
it is very probable that the Unite
States will never bo called upon to o
sumo any liability in connection wi
the undertaking.
Fan the first time since the 24th

As evening approached , a certain a
of formality , and an indication of tl
near approach of an important occi
sion , became perceptible. Every mai
woman and child had rested , after tr
trying fatigue of over six weeks' coi
stant travel. They had bathed , th
men and children's hair had boon cu
boards had boon trimmed , and over
person was attired in clean clothe
from head to foot. There was an ur
mistakable Sunday appearance aboi
every ono who emerged from the sop
orate dressing rooms set apart for tli
two sexes. A little before six o'clocl
iccording to old orthodox Jowls
rites , all the mothers of children pre
