Republican editors continue to
pitch into Mr. Cleveland. They evi
dently regard him as still an import
ant factor in American politics. They
will be convinced Of this in 1892.
By a recent decision of the United
States Supreme Court, iu S. Cl, the

an agricultural aud . mechanical col

down the opiuiou.

It is said that Harrison will appoint

a good many second rate men.
It is said that Col. Tom Hardeman,
who will have to step down and out of
the Macon post office, would like to
succeed Mr. Blount in congress. The
political.pot begins to simmer. It
will soon be boiling—over.
Here is a matriage notice lrom a
Cleveland paper: "In Guilford, Me

Sallic Murphey, after a tedious court
ship of fifteen years, which was borne
with Christian fortitude and patience.”
It is to be hoped that the road con*
grcsB will result iu tbe inauguration
of some plan by which better roads
will be had in Georgia. The subject
is a most important one. It goes
without saying that our system of
keeping up public roads is very defec
tive and inefficient. There ought to
be some plan adopted to improve it.
The work, which Ins been going on

'Washington dispatches to the N.
Y, World announce that the 882,000,-
000 appropriated for the payment of
pensions this year has already been
exhausted, with six week? more of the
fiscal year to be provided for. The
probability of a deficiency is therefore
converted .into a certainty, and the
expectation—perhaps the boast—of
the bureau that itAvill be able to dis
pose of over 8100,000,000 before July,
seems likely to be realized.”
The ex-soldicrs of the Union armies
are much less to blame for this extra
ordinary raid ou the treasury than
arc the claim agents, n new species of
shyster developed since the war.
During every session of Congress they
crowd the lobbies of House and Sen
ate. Tt is an array of dead-beats con
stantly increasing. They bunt every
so-called ex-soldier who ever stumped
his toe during the war, while, under
going a three months’ servieo (at
home) as a substitute; and if he hap
pens to be dead they enlist his moth
er, father, wife, or some other relative
to appear iu his stead.
It need not be reiterated that the
people of the South (and especially
the late Confederate soldiers) cheer
fully pay their pro rata of the peusion
list. Among the warmest friends of
the real Union soldiers in the Sruth,
Congressmen who had served in the
armies of Lee and Johnston have
been the most steadfnst. But it is an
imposition against which tho whole
country protests, the effort to quarter
hundreds of thousands of dend-beats
upon the treasury.
The World says: “In any other
country than this, or with a people
less indifferent than are ours to what
becomes of the revenues, the extraor
dinary growth of the pension fund
under the combined efforts of the
claim agents and political demagogues,
would be startling.
“In 1878, thirteen years after the
close of the war, when tho claims
would naturally have begun to di
minish, the applications allowed had
decreased from a maximum of 50,000
in 1866, the year after the war, to
about 11,000. The disbursements
had fallen from a maximum of 833,-
000,000 in 1871 to 826,000,000.
Last year, twenty-three years after
tho close of the war, the applications
allowed were over sixty thousand—
including the survivors of the Mexi
can war, lately pensioned--and the
disbursements this year will be at
This sum exceeds by 827,000,000
the total ordinary expeuses of the
Federal government in the year be
fore the war. It equals the cost of
the standing army of Great Britain
(180.000 strong) and nearly equals
tbe cost of tho great German army
(almost 500 strong). And with Cor
poral Tanner in charge there is no
telling where it will stop.”
There ought to be a universal pro
test against Tanner’s raid on tho pub
lic crib. He wil’ saddle the country
with the payment of millions aud
millions of dollars of fraudulent pen
sioners, unless checked. There will
be a saturnalia amoug the horde of
hungry .pension agents in Washington
for tho next four years. The surplus
will not bother the democrats when
they return to power iu 1892.
We take the following extracts from
Gov. Gordon’s address before the Road
“I recognize fully tho justice of tlje
demand made upon mo by your com
mittee and your chairman. It is alto
gether proper that he who chaucoe at
this time to be the executive of this
great state should in the name of the
state welcome to the capital of the
state a body of the citizens of the
state who, without drawing one dollar
for salary or expense from the treasury
of the s’tatc, have nevertheless con
vened to devise and discuss methods
and measures to promote the prosperity
of the state. [Applause.]
* * v * ik
“And now, gentlemen, one word of
exhortation, which I know to be un
necessary to such a body of men. Let
thespiritof unselfish, unbought patriot
ism which has convened you preside
over your deliberations, actuate you
and control you, and God, who is
always on the side of the men who
work without pay for the public good,
shall bring a blessing to our state
aud our people. [Applause.]”
“Will the educated woman marry?”
is a question now under discussion iu
some of the magazines. That de
pends. If her education makes her
bright, pleasant, entertaining and
sensible, she will marry, provided a
man worth having is within reach
But if her education makes her criti
cal, dogmatic and pedantic, she will
not marry, for the simple reason that
no man will ask her. All women
ought to be well educated, Nothing
more requires a wise aud well trained
mind than to administer well the af
fairs of a household. An education
which unfits a woman for this is not
worth the name.

The Next Democratic Leader.
It will be more than three years
before the two great political parties
iu this country name their candidates
for the next presidential contest.
Consequently inquiries as to favor
ites for these honors are premature at
this time, aud the opinions of to-day
concerning the merits and availability
of candidates may he materially mod
ified or completely changed by the
course of events between now aud
1892. But the New York Press has
taken the trouble to ask quite a num
ber of democratic editors in all sec
tions of the country their opiuiou “as
to the probable leader of the Demo
cratic party iu the next national po
litical light.” Thirty replies were
received. Nineteen of these name
Mr. Cleveland as the most available
democratic leader for 1892. Six pre
fer Gov. Hill. Ex-Secretary Whit
ney, Hon. John M. Palmer, of Illinois,
and Hon. John G. Carlise, of Ken
tucky, have one vote each in this
editorial primary election. One reply
indicates “cither Hill or Whitney”
and one is non-committal.
The most notable thing about these
predic ions is that nearly every’one of
them points to tarifl retorul as tbe
great issue iu the next national cam
paign, and most of the preferences for
Mr. Cleveland are based on the fact
that he lias made himself the most
prominent exponent of that idea.
This is only one of the manv recent
evidences that Mr. Cleveland holds a
very large place in the. public thought,
and that ho is generally associated with
the possibilities of our next great
political contest. The Press is disposed
to attach considerable value to the
replies to its inquiry. It says: “The
importance of this great symposium
of opinious eauuot be over-estimated.
Every ouc of these men makes poli
tics a study. They read all the
speeches of our great mcu. They
come in contact familiarly with poli
ticians. They receive thousands of
letters every month from eager and
able democrats. They’ arc therefore
able to speak with authority.”—Tele

An Editor's Experience.
~ Major Sidney Herbert, a well known
journalist in agricultural circles, writes
April 18, t88tj: ; Some five y&trs ago 1
wrote a letter staling that Swift’s Spe
cific had cured me of severe rheuma
tism. Since that time I haVc had no
return of the rheumatic frdubles, al
though frequently exposed to the influ
ences that produced former attacks.
Several of my friends had the same
experience, and are firm in the convic
tion that S. S. S. brought a permanent
cure. The searching power of this
medicine is shown in the fact that it
developed a scfofulus taint that was
conspicuous in my blood over thirty
years ago, and has removed the last
trace of it. I have also tested S. S. S.
as a tonic after a severe attack of ma
larial fever which kept me in bed for
three months, and am convinced that
its curative and strengthening powers
insured my recovery from that illness,
as 1 was in a very low condition of
health. Sidney Herbert,
