A Typical Platform and Ticket.
If anyone doubts that the Republican
party has ceased to be a groat and strong
organization having principles which ap
peal to the judgments and hearts of the
people aud guided by men having pur
poses above the mere control of the offices,
let him read the platform adopted by the
New York Republican convention and
notice the ticket which it nominated. The
whole aim of both is to catch votes. The
platform stales that the Republican party
is in favor of honest civil service reform,
and condemns the President for not en
forcing the civil service law. It has not
been so very many years since the Republi
can party pretended to enforce a civil ser
vice law, but its efforts were so feeble that
the law was soon wholly ignored and for
gotten. It is perfectly safe to say that if
the Republican party were now in power
the civil service law would soon become a
The platform also states that the Repub
lican party favors such an adjustment of
the tariff that the revenues will be only
sufficient to meet the wants of the govern
ment economically administered. It is a
fact that will not be denied that the Repub
licans in Congress resist every effort hi ad
just tlie revenues to the needs of the gov
ernment. It is the baldest kind of insincer
ity, therefore, to pretend to favor any ad
justment of the tariff. The Republican
party don’t want the tariff disturbed because
it about suits the monopolists who are as
sisted by it to make immense profits from
the various kinds of business in which they
are engaged. They would like to have the
whisky and tobacco taxes repealed, and
whatever surplus there remains they want
to have distributed in the Northern States
in the shape of pensions.
The part of the platform, however, for
which there is the least reason, and which
shows the sectional character of the party,
is that which declares that workingmen in
the South must be protected in their politi
cal rights, and that they must be permitted
to have a free ballot and a fair count. It is
strange that the Republican leaders do not
furnish some proof of their constantly
reiterated charge that voters at the South
are net permitted to cast their ballots as
they’ please, and that ballots are not counted
a? they are cast. They must think that the
Northern people are easily deceived if they
expect them to accept as true the bare state
ment that there is not freedom in voting at
The fact is the Republican party has lost
whatever character it had, and is simply
existing upon its past reputation. Having
a very low standard of morality it aims to
secure a return to power by deception. In
its platform it pretends to favor the sup
pression of the liquor traffic, but the advo
cates of temperance do not trust it. They
know very well that what it wants to do is
to prevent its members from' leaving it for
the Prohibition party. The great mistake
which politicians make is in thinking that
they can deceive the people by hollow prom
ises and pledges. The reason that Mr.
Cleveland has such a strong hold upon the
masses is that he does what he say s he will.
The humblest workingman who cun read is
not slow to feel whatever insincerity there
is in a party platform.
Col. Fred D. Giant leads theticket. Why
was he chosen to that position? Was it be
cause he has great ability or has rendered
the Republican party great services? Not
at all. It is hoped that his father’s great
name will strengthen the ticket. Col. Grant
is conspicuous for only one thing, and that
is his business connection with that Napo
leon of finance, Ferdinand Ward, who at
present is serving a term in the peniten
The Piedmont Exposition.
The pros|ieet that the Piedmont Exposi
tion at Atlanta will be well worth seeing is
very promising. It will not, of course, be
anything like as largo as the New Orleans
Exposition was, nor will there be anywhere
near the variety in the display. It would
bo impossible to get up as great an exposi
tion as that at New Orleans was in the very
short time between the conception and
opening of the Piedmont Exposition.
The Piedmont Exposition, however, does
not pi ojxise to make a display of articles from
all the world. It aims at nothing more
than showing what the resources of the
South are, and what progress the South hus
made aud is making. The industrial growth
of the Southern States within the last few
years has lieon remarkable. A statement
was published in a New Orleans paper a few
days ago showing the increase of the taxable
wealth of twelve Southern States in the last
eight years. The assessors’ books of these
twelve States showed their assessed value in
1871) to be >3, 1tH,702,795, and in 1887 to lie
>3,004,800,443, an increase of >300,000,000.
The fact is, the resources of the South are
only just lieginning to bo developed. Her
forests and mines are scarcely touched yet,
and the yield of her fields is bound to
steadily increase. •
A great crowd will be at Atlanta during
the exposition. The President and Mrs.
Cleveland will be the great attractions.
During their three days’ stay there the
sightseer aud the stranger will have a hard
time to find a resting place.
All the expositions which have been held
in the South have done her good. They
cost time and money, but they are worth
all they cost. Much of the present pros
perity of the South is due to her exposi
tions. They have mado known to home
seekers and capitalists her resources, and
this information was just what was needed
to give her a boom.
IndianaiKilis is a great place for rows
among the politicians. There is a row there
now over the question of who shall enter
tain the President during his visit there
next month. The President accepted the
Board of Trade’s invitation, but the Hen
dricks Club Uuve made preparations for the
President’s reception nnd entertainment.
The Board of Trade say that they propose
to do the reception and entertainment act
themselves. Hence the row.

THE MORNING NEWS: FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 1887.
A Suggestion to the Health Authori
The citv authorities, it seems, on the rec
ommendation of the Health Officer, are con
sidering the advisability of erecting a
crematory for disposing of the garliage of
the city, gffhis is probably a move in the
right direction. Anything that promises to
contribute to the improvement of the health
fulness of the city ought to receive careful
consideration. It is not yet known what a
crematory would cost, but it is probable
that the expense of disposing of the garbage
by burning it would be much less than the
present method of getting rid of it, and that
the amount saved would soon equal the cost
of a crematory.
But while ways are being devised to pro
mote the public health would it. not be
wise to inaugurate a movement to get rid of
some of the bad smelling closets, which are
to be found in different parts of the city ?
The health authorities have had their atten
tion called to these closets quite frequently,
and still nothing has been (lone towards re
moving them. If the parties who are re
sponsible for them will not remove them, or
keep them in a condition that will not annoy’
the people of the neighborhood in which they
are located, then they ought to be removed
by the city for the reason that they are
nuisances, and are deleterious to the
public health. Nobody doubts that they
are the cause of a great deal of sickness. It
would not be difficult to find people who
have suffered from fevers during the
present summer which were directly trace
able to them. Surely it is in the power of
the city to abate such nuisances as these
Money is being spent to drain the low
places around the city, and also to give the
people clear and wholesome water. It is
proposed to dispose of the garbage so that it
cannot affect the healthfulness of the city
injuriously. Now let the health authorities
see if something cannot be done to abate
the bad-smelling, fever-breeding closets.
It doesn’t seem to Occur to the average
follower of Henry George and Dr. McGlynn,
the apostles of the Anti-Poverty Society,
that they are doing a great deal toward
abolishing their own poverty. At all the
Anti-Poverty meetings a collection is taken,
which doubtless is well invested for future
use. This money does not, of course, go
into the pockets of either Dr. McGlynn or
Henry George, but it is reasonable to sup
pose that a part of it is appropriated to the
support of Dr. McGlynn. He must have a
living from some source, and as he has no
private income he must be supported from
the Anti-Poverty collections.
Henry George doesn’t need any assistance
from the collections. The notoriety which
he has attained ns the leader of the new
crusade has resulted in an enormous sale of
his books. It is reported that he has in
vested as much as $50,000 in gilt-edged secu
rities since he came into prominence a year
or so ago in New York city. If he' can
maintain his present notoriety for awhile
louger he can retire with a handsome little
fortune, and can point to himself as otie
whose poverty has been abolished.
It is probable that Mr. George has
no expectation of being elected to the office
for which be has been nominated, but he
doubtless does expect to be made richer
than he is before the Anti Poverty Society
scheme loses its popularity. He is a shrewd
mau if he is a crank. Henry George and
Dr. McGlynn in their success in money
making are not without some resemblance to
the Rev. Sain Jones, and exhorter Sam
Small. The former propose to abolish pov
erty, and the latter, sin —for cash.
Mr. Fowderly now says he will serve to
the end of his term, still more than a year
off, as General Master Workman of the
Knights of Labor. In his annual message
to the General Assembly of the order he will
advocate a government ownership of rail
roads and telegraphs, and if his views are
indorsed by the assembly he will see they
are pressed upon Congress with all the influ
ence that can be brought to boar. Mr. Pow
derly is shrewd in attempting to direct the
attention of the Knights from internal dis
sousions to national ixjlities, but it will be a
long time liefore the jieople of this country
consent to add a million or so names to their
pay-roll. They find it hard to manage
Henry Villard seems about to gain a
greater place in railroad circlas than he
held before his failure. He and his friends
have secured control of the Northern
Pacific, Oregon Transcontinental and Wis
consin Central, giving them a line from
Chicago to the Pacific coast. It is said to
be Villard’s ambition to extend his railroad
system entirely across the continent to New
York, and his success heretofore has been
so wonderful that it would excite little sur
prise should ho carry out his plan.
The progress of marine architecture and
in the methods of applying steam to the
propulsion of vessels has been so rapid of
late that ships on the stocks become old
fashioned before they are launched. The
Boston, which made her trial trip in Long
Island Sound a few’ days ago, after long
delay, logged less than fourteen knots an
hour. A torpedo steamer just completed in
England made thirty-two and n half miles
on her trial trip and twenty-four and a half
knots at sea.
The State bank examiners of California
pounced down on the Nevada Bank the
other day, without warning, and thoroughly
examined the affaire of the institution. In
spite of the ugly rumors connecting the
hank with the recent disastrous wheat deal,
its affaire were found in a first rate condi
tion. This is encouraging news. The fall
of so great an institution, even so far away
os California, might shake confidence in
business circles all over the country.
Betting on the Thistle and lier American

George’s Theory and Practice Do Not
From the Philadelphia Times (Ind .)
Like a good many reformers, of both ancient
and modern times, Mr. George's preaching does
not tally with his practice. His theory is ad
vanced as a good thing for other men to prac
tice, but as for him, the old-fashioned way of
abolishing his own poverty seems to be very sat
isfactory. If Mr. George's followers would fol
low Mr. George's example they would have less
poverty to complain of than they are likely to
have by following bis teachings.

point. The Southern editor has never been

The delicate arrogance of the society youth

where the ladies were painfully in excess of the
gentleman. A lady who was keeping a matronly
eye upon the festivities approached a languid
youth, in a very high picoadilly collar, who
stood looking at nothing in pa ticular and ap
parently thinking of less, and said to him:
“Oh. my dear Mr. Oadley, I want to introduce
you to a young lady over here.”
“Ah." said he. raising his hand and toying

apology, observing the lady's stupefaction,
“you know I’m making scarcely any acquaint

young lady that evening, at any rate.

attract a crowd to a window, all one has to do is
to stand and gaze into that window. In a short
time ten or a dozen people will be gazing with
him. They were down to hard pan—on their
uppers, so to speak.
One of them went to the proprietor of a men s
furnishing house ori Chestnut street, and told
him that for so much a week he would guaran
tee to attract more uttentlon to his window than
all the displays that could be laid out. The pro
prietor was struck with the idea and gave it a
trial. Asa consequence there was a crowd at
his window nearly all the time The young man
would walk up to the window with his triend
and stand guzing there until a crowd of a dozen
or fifteen were stauding with him. To keep the
crowd moving he would walk away and that
started the break in the crowd. The perform
ance was repeated every ten or fifteen minutes.
The young man went to other stores along the
street, unfolded his plan and pointed out the
success of it. In a short time he had the whole
street from Ninth to Broad on his beat, and he
had to take his friend into partnership, and he
makes plenty of money.
If other window-gazers do not get on to the
idea and get into the business, these two origin
ators will shortly establish branches of the
'Gazers" in other cities.

From the Arkahsaw Traveler.
The front door of a magnificent residence
closed with a violent slain. Anthony Jenlo,
muttering angrily, came down the steps. The
door opened and a little boy, bright-eyed and
full of mischief, came out.
“Won't you bring me something?” the child
“No, I won’t," the man harshly replied.
“You are so mean that I ought never to give
“I didn't mean to be bad."
“Yes you did. You are getting so that there
is no living in the house with you."
“You don't love me then, do you?"
“Nobody can love you when you are so bad."
“Won't you let me kiss you?''
“No, I won't, Go back into the house.”
Jenlo hurried away. He was going to a dis
tant part of the State to be gone several days.”
“I ought not to have spoken to the little fellow
that way." he mused when he had boarded the
train. He took a newspaper from his pocket,
glanced at the headlines of a fearful calamity
and his eyes fell upon an Item headed, “A litte

The first thing he heard upon stepping off the
train at the end of his jonniey was the shriek
of a child. He shuddered, and a little face,
dearer to him than his own life, suddenly arose
before him. Even while engaged in the trans
action of his business, he constantly heard, in
the sweet, hut troubled accents of a child, the
words: "You don'tlove me. then, do you?"
At night he want to the tneatre. A little boy

tossed, cold, and then feverish. A midnight
hell rang out the words, "You do not love me,
then, do you?’’ At last, he slept. He saw sev

block shawl, on a litter. When the rae.n saw
him. they put down their burden and hid their
faces. He lifted the black covering and saw
the mangled body of his l)oy. With a groan he
awoke. “I must go home,' he said. “I will
not wait until morning." He went to the sta
tion. A train was just starting. He Would not
suffer himself to doze. It was evening when lie
reached home. As he neared his house he heard
a man, in speaking to a companion, say that
the hotly of the boy had not been recovered.

Jenlo hurried along the street, “My God!"

Everything about the house was still. He

of delight, and bis toy bounded down Uie stairs

In his arms: "thank God!"
“What did you bring me?"

penetrate this vast morass, which abounds in
snakes, the natives simply rub the soles of their

is too much for the delicate stomachs of the
reptiles, and they crawl away as fast as they
are able. This insures almost absolute safety.
