THE NEXT iELECTORAL COLLEGE.
The apportionment bill aa it standi
is a Republican measure, _ aud as
South Carolina is also in favor of the
proposed plan, it ia reasonable to aa-
snrae that tbe bill will become a law
with material amendment, sayathe
Atlanta Constit’-tion. Instead then
ot 185 electoral voles being necessary
to elect a President, the successful
candidate must have at least 201.
Iu the old electoral college there
were 309 votes; in the new there
will be 401, or 404 if Dakota, be
comes x state. In the last named
event a majority would be 203. It
ia reasonably certain that Dakota
will become a .state, and. that there
fore the next President most secure
203 electoral votes. Under tbe ex
isting apportionment tbe sixteen
southern states cast 138 electoral
votes; under ihe£propoi«d law they
will cast 153. Let us assume that
the south will be solid iu 1884—dem
ocratically solid. Jnst 60 additional
votes are needed. New York will
cast 36 and Indiana 15—total 51, or
a relative loss ot two votes. In other
words, under tbe present law, New
York, Indiana and the south would
cast 188 votes when 185 are necessa
ry, under the new law they will cast
204 when 203 are essential to success.
If Indiana should go over to the ene
my, Nevada’s three votes aud New
Jersey nine would not suffice. No
vada, New Jersey and Connecticut
-would replace Indiana, and give us a
margin of tour voles, but Counecti
cut is no longer reliably Democratic.
We could spare Connecticut if we
sou Id carry Calilot nia, Indiana could
be given up in cate Colorado, Nevada
and New Jersey went Democratic,
The whole truth is, the situation will
uot bu greatiy changed by tbejnew
law; for New York will retain all
her power as tbe Presideut nruKiue
state, aud Iudiaua will remain as piv-
ovtal as before. A nominee that
could curry Ohio would, 'however,
unsettle the slates. Uuder the new
bill the southern gains foot up fifteen,
namely: Aikansas, 1; Georgia, 1
Kentucky 1; Mississippi 1; Missou
ri 1; North Carolina 1, South Caro
lina 2; Texas 5; Virginia 1; and
West Virginia 1. No southern state
loses a member. The net northern
guns are seventeen, Thestat.esthat
suffer losses are Maine, New Ramp-
shire and Vermont, one each.

about Jeff rsouian democracy, Bour-

1 WITCHCRAFT IN ALASKA.
St. Louis Republican.
Those who attended tbe meeting
of the Woman’s Board if Missions at
the Presbyterian rooms yesterday als
ternoon were grieved and astonished
when they listened to the reading
of a very sensational letter from Miss
Maggie J. Dunbar, a Presbyterian
missionary, stationed at prenent at
Fort Wrangell, Alaska. Through
the letter its author described the
terrible tlbfferinga of several families,
old men and young children, recently
tortured to death for the alleged
crime of witchcraft. Thd victims, in
cluding persons of various ages, frem
four to seventy years, were tried by
the heathen tribunals ot the place,
and sentensed to death. At Lock,
a portion of Alaska where tbe an-
taent, population of the place predomi
nates, and enforces their unwritten
law, which consists of all the super
stitions their ancestors fonnd leisure
to devise and hand down to their
posterity, a family found guilty of be
ing spiritual jugglers, of a type sup
posed to be in league with the devil,
were taken out and tied' to trees.
The grandmother of tbe family was
tied to a large forest tree, and lett
there to starve. After giviug her salt
water whenever she asked that her
thirst might be quenched, the demons
about the tree fiually hacked her to
death with knives. The balance ot
the family succeeded in breaking
away from their captors, and escaped
by plunging into a dark, and, to all
appearances, impenettable forest,
filled with wild beasts. These perse*
cuted people wandered about through
the dark reeestt.es, of this wilderness,
cold and buugry, until they could
stand their sufferings no longer, when
they concluded to cross the enemy’s
oountry under cover ot darkness, and
reach, if possible, Fort Wrangell,
where they knew they would be safe
in the presence of a United Stales
man-of-war. They reached the
ocean, and took to a canoe. In This
trail bark they pursued their journey,
buggiug the coast as closely as possi
ble until they arrived at the fort, al
most dead and scarcely able to talk.
The missionary, who was walking on
the beach on the evening ot their ars
rival, saw the canoe land. The craft
contained an old man and two chil
dren, who related their frightful ad
ventures and asked for protection.
The children were taken into the inis*
siouary home of the fort. The two
girls, the letter states, looked rather
odd walking to the home along the
beach robed in blankets tattered and

Mr. William Hughes, ot Baltimore,
was married to Miss Mollie Bur
roughs. of Mathews county, Va., on
last Thursday, and came to Wash
ington on Friday, en ronte for Tope
ka, Kansas, their future home. Tbis
marriage forms a link in a chain of
remarkable coincidences. Mr. Hughes
has three brothers whose birthdays
fall on February 16. Each ot tbe four
brothers was married on his twenty-
sixth birthday, at the same church
and by the same minister, the bride
in each case bring at the age of 21 cn
their wedding day.
A little girl whom tbe missionary
calls Georgia, only five years of age
and an orphan, resided with an aunt.
This aunt took sick one day, when
J^yhikhwaiti aceeaiad.of -bewitching
her, and ‘making her bad medicine.’
As aeon ax this accusation was made
the unfortunate little creature was
locked up in a room, where she was
kept for three days without food or
water, and whipped unmercifully, un
til her body was literally covered
with discolored marks." The chief of
one ot the Christianized communities
heard of the outrage and reportod the
matter to the military authorities ot
the fort, who visited tbe place where
tbe child was confined one night, res
cued her, and took her to tbe mis
sionary home. Both the cases des
cribed have been reported to the
Captain of the man-of-war stationed
at tbe fort, .and the savages, it ia
thought, will ultimately be punished.
TBE CITY OF MACON.
There is no paper that we read
with more interest than the Macon
Telegraph & Messenger; and there
is no, city whose progress we watch
with closer attention or more gratifi
cation, than the beautiful (Jem ralcity
of Georgia. Tbis is partly due to the
fact that for many years, Macon wax
our home. Here the halcyon days ot
our childhood and youth werespent—
perhaps the happiest period of life
But there is another reason and
that is that Macon’s progress up
ward in financial prosperity and com
mercial importance is snch as cannot
fail to be gratifyiug to all who know
the splendid old city and its charac
teristics. With a steady unfaltering
step, she marches onward. Without
the rapid growth which some cities
have attained, or tbe self-assertion of
othera, e’ue has taken on growth as
rapidly as is compatible with a truly
healthy condition ; and she has never
taken a step backward. Uupreteo
tious, yet deserving, modest, bold in
genuine progress, Macon maintains a
queenly position among southern cit
ies, and is the worthy home of some
of tbe best people that ever breathed
tbe air of heaven.
We rejoice from- day to day, to
note, in the columux ot the Telegraph
and Messenger, the steady, increas
ing advancement of our old home.
Wbat it has done in the past seemi
but a foreshadowing of what it will
do in tite future. Macon will never
have more good fortune than it de-'

WHAT WILL HAPPEN WHEN WOMEN VOTE.
Mr. T. w. Higginson says: lam
not given to predicting just wbat will
happen when women vote, but I cons
fidently assert that they will be taken
to the jiolta in fitst class carriages, as
old or invalid or indolent voters are
now. Tbe.carriage will be only the
beginning of tbe polite attentions that
will soon appear. When we Bee tbe
transformation undergone by every
ferryboat and every railway station,
so soon as it comes to be frequented
by women, who can doubt that vto-
ing places will experience the same
change? They will soon have—at
least in the ladies’ department—^ele
gance instead of discomfort, beauty
for ashes, plenty of rocking-chairs,
and no need ot spittoons—the Massa-
ebusetts Legislature has already
passed a law forbidding' tORikingal
the polls. Very possibly they may
have all modern conveniences and in
conveniences. furnace registers, tea
kettles, Washington pies, aud a young
lady to give checks for bundles. Who
knows what elaborate comforts, what
queenly luxuries may be offered to
women at voting places whsn the
time has finally arrived to sue for
their votes? People look at the
coarseness and dirt now. visible at bo
many voting places, and say: ‘Would
you expose women to all that?’ But
these places are not dirtier than a
railway smuking car; and there is no
more coarseness than in any lerryboat,
which is, for whatever reason, uaed
by men only. You do not look into
these place* and say with indignation:
‘Never, if I can help it, shall my wile
or my beloved greatgrandmother
travel by steamboat or by rail.’ You
know that with these exemplary rela
tives will enter order and quiet, car
pets and curtains, brooms and dus
ters. Why should it be otherwise
with ward rooms and town halls?
There is not an atom more ot intrin
sic difficulty in provid : ng a decorous
ladies’ room for a voting place, than
for a post office or a railway station;
and it is as simple a thing to vote a
ticket as to buy one.’
The Pope’s New Home.
A curious story is told at some
length by Figaro concerning the ne
gotiations which it asserts have re
cently taken place in regard to the
expected departure of the I'ope from
Rome. Tiiis flight from the Vatican
has long been the fixed purpose of
Leo XIII, but it is only recently that
be has decided to go. Prince Bis
marck offered to repeal the May laws
and to authorize the expelled priests
to return to the parishes ir the Pope
would consent to fix his future resi
dence at Frankfort. He promised
that the city should be neutralized; as

many millions per annum. Leo de
clined. Strasburg was then offered
him ou the same terms as Frankfort.
This offer was also refused. A ref
uge in France was out of the ques
tion. So at last the Pope closed with
the offer of Salzbur, which has been
made" him by the Hapshurgs. The
ci y is to be neutralized, and the Pope
subventioned from the Austrian exs
chequer. Everything ia said to be in

Disease in lee.
The New York World, backed by
Professor Pornpelly, of Newport, and
ofessor Pornpelly, ol
Dr. Bell,ofNew York,both emrainent
scientists, is investigating tbe subject
of disease in ice. Professor Pornpel-
ly las been studying tbe ice question
for some years, aud discovers that
freezing will not kill tbe bacteria and
other germs, which propagate disease,
as has generally been supposed, and
that the ice made from water into
which any sewerage flows is liable to
propagate typhoid and other fevers
-whether placed iti drinking water or
in a cooler to cool meat. This fact
the Professor proves by innumerable
instances, and he proves his taith by
his works; for he never drinks water
in which ice has been plaoed. He
always cools hia water in bottles,
which are plaoed in ice . Neverthr
less, we dare say, people generally
will continue to drtuk ice water ail
Prohibition la Georgia.

A young Roumanian engiueer nam
ed TrajaD Teodorescu, has at length
succeeded in surmounting the difficul
ties that have heretofore baffled in-,
ventors without number. A few
weeks ago this gentleman submitted
to the consideration of a technical
commission, appointed by the Rou
manian government, his model of / a
fiahvshaped s ed boa:, provided with
ibeine iusof locomotion and stored
with air sufficient lor the consump
tion of its crew during a period ot
submer.-ion but exceeding fifteen
hour*. The stock of air, however,
can he renewed at will by raising the
vessel to a point Jrom six to nine leet
beneath the . surface of the water,
whence, by means of pneumatic pumps
and a slender iron tube passed through
a practical circular trap in its roof, it
will be able to take in its atmostpher-
ic provision. The interior of the
boat is illuminated brilliaully from
stem to stern by electric light'throwc
upon powerful reflectors. With tbe
aid of this light it will be enabled to
search for torpedoes at but little risk
to itself, and to conduct its own of
fensive operations against hostile fleats
with the utmost precision. We un
derstand that M. Teodorescu. under
the immediate auspices of his govertv
ment, has arrived in London for the
purpose of patenting his .invention in

cation, and not intoxication. The
conformation of the.bird’s neck is
such that food, must pass directly
across the windpipe to reach its des
tination, and in tbe case of a china
berry this journey is rather trouble
some to the bird. The berry lodges
against tbe windpipe and the attempts
to swallow it result in suffocation.
It is then the bird falls from the tree,
and his efforts to swallow the berry
have tbe appearance of drunkenness.
Generally the bird recovers, but some
times it is choked to death. The tnf-
located birds may be relieved by
