The Sacred Ballot.
Tho following extract from ten
sible editorial in the Call, an inde
pendent journal, clearly and ably ex
presses what is the nentimont of the
nnpartisan and liberty loving people
oi thia great country upon tho Louis.
tana case :
One result of that patched-up com
promise was the recent distiiAed lVs
idential election which heldrthe whole
country insuHDensednrin&rfour months.
and was decided at last on the ' priii-jj
cipie tnat eight is one rnoio than seven.
The country wants tio more of the kind
of compromises by which nothinir is
determined but the question whether
iuiS 0t that man shall hold tho dispu
ted office. Some time or other the
Administration must go to the bottom
ot this question and decide it on living
principles. J ho case requires heroic
treatment, lbe principle underlying
it all is the right ot a voter to have
Ins vote counted. Tho practice ob
tains there now of throwing votes out
if in the opinion ot four or five State
omcialN, known as a Returning Hoard.
they ought to be thrown out. That
practice will not work in a btate claim
ing a republican form ot covorninent.
The excuse of intimidations or undue
influence is no excuse at all. It might
be used to reverse the result of every
election in every Southern or any
Nothern State. The duty of a gov
ernment is to protect its citizens from
intimidation or undue influence from
the silent but powerful influence of
money, as well as more barbarous in
fluence. But there must be a fi utility
somewhere, or the result of an election
can never be determined. The polls,
properly, arc tho finality except when
a vote is shown to bo fraudulent.
Governm nt may do all in its power
to protect a voter from undue influ
ences, but it in spite of tho efforts of
Government he votes as some influ
ence dictates, bis vote must count,
other wixe, an endless field for inves
tigation is open from which materials
ooul 1 be gathered to reopen the issue
ot an election in almost every State in
tho Union. 1 ho fallacy has also been
admitted into the political machinery
of these disputed Southern States,
that a legal voter may be deprived of
us vote becauso somo other legal vo
ter was trightened away lrom the
polls. Twenty years hence if the
Kepublio stands peoplo will wonder
it such a barbarous system was ever
permitted in any part ot tho Unilod
States. Nothing can be more repug
nant to a republican form of govern
ment. The citizen s right to vote is
acred ; but of what use is the right
to vote, it ho has not an equal right
to insist that his vote shall be counted?
When the prejudice and passions of
this neriod are nassed awav as we
trust they soon will be all laws con
templating buoIi an invasion of the
rights of citizens will bo pronounced
unconstitutional. They cannot exist
in a Kepublio without corrupting its
lfo.
If area and Know NothluKl.ro.
The effort to vindicate Hayes, says
tho San Fracioco Examiner, from the
stain of Know JSotlnnginn, by in
stancing his appointment ot Carl
Schurz to a Cabinet position, will not
wash. Proof that he is bigoted against
those who are most proscribed and
persecuted by the Know Nothing
spirit, now made aotive by the Uni
ted Order of Americans, of which
Hayes is a member, could be readily
found in his order of execution of the
boy Sullivan, whose parents were Irish
Catholics. The boy stabbed the Mas
ter of an U.O. A. Lodge in a street fight.
The weapon was common jack knifo.
The man died several diys aft -r wards. Tbe
boy wa tried and twice tbe jury disagreed.
Ha was forced to a tbird trial before a packed
jury of tbe members ol the Order, convicted
of murder, and enu n:ed to death. Gov
ernor Hayes promised Archbishop Purcell
be would commute tbe punishment to Im
prisonment for life. Tbe U. O. A.' then ap
p id ted a delrgatino l wait on Hayrg and
demand tbe execution of tbe lad. Hayes
violated hi. solemn promise to tbe Arch
bishop nod ordered the death sentence to bi
executed Tbe boy was banged, tie was
oot hani'ej fur murder. He was banzed be
cause he was ol In.h Catholic parentage, and
becaise be caused tbe death of member of
Hayes' an ti-Irish and anti-Catholic Secret
Order ol Radical bigots. II lartber proof is
w.oted to sbow bis Know NotbiDgisai, it cab
be lound io tbe record of his public life. Un

Dulnllt' Downfall.
.Chicago Tribune,
Speaking about real estato, panics,
collapses and things, we are reminded
of the once proud city of Dulutli,
which stood pre-eminent on a couple
of sand hills near Lako Superior, and
was tlie mistress ot a land locked har
bor and tho affectionate Proctor
Knott. How perishable and trans
ient are the uses ot this 'world I But
six years ago Dululh might have
stood against the "world. Now she
has fallen so low that Troctor Knott
forgets todoher icverenco. The bot
tom has fallen out of tho Dululh real
estate market, and it lias dropped
like lead from the scoop of a dredging
machine. A honso and residence that
cost $8,500 has just been disposed of
for $700, and a local newspaper says
this is a fair measure of the decline in
values. Absolute ruin mustovorlake
the entire town, tho local writer goes
on to say, unless a compromise of the
municipal indebtedness can bo ob
tained, Chicago mourns for Dululh,
as for Cincinnati and St. Louis and
those other cities that were onoe her
sisters, but are now the wards. Grace,
mercy, and peace be with tlietn all 1
More About lite Georges. Wright.
Victoria, B. C, April 5. Tho
most sorrowful page in tho story of
the wreck of tho Or. S. Wright, in
1874. remains to-be writton. Tliu Col
onist has a few additional particulars
of the massacre of a portion of her
passengers and crew by tho Indians
and the destruction of the Indian vil
lage. The officers learned enough to
convinco them that several of the ship
wrecked iK'rsoim got ashore and were
murdered by tho natives. The story
is to the purport that a cumber of
white men came ashore in a boat ; that
they had with them a box in which
were many papers nd a largo sum of
moneo in gold and silver. They bar
gained with a party of Kinisgut Indi
ans, who wore bound to Victoria to
take them to Port Rupert for seven
dollars each. The while men were
without arms, and when night came
and all were asleep, the Indians mur
dered and threw the bodies Into tho
sea after stripping them of everything
ol value. Tlie monoy in the box was
divided by the savages, who then
came on to Victoria and spent tbe
coin. An Indian woman says she
picked up the head of a white man on
the beach at Capo Camion a few
months after tho wreck and was told
to put it down again, and say nothing
about having found it. The officers
found no property belonging to the
Wright, except portions of the wreck
which probably drifted ashoro.
With respect to the destruction of
tho village, we learn that Sergeant
Bloomficld landed with three others
from the Jlocfu:t, and demanded four
men who are luspt'cted of complicity
in the murders. Tho Indians came
out and refused to give up tho men.
The party then secured two ot the
suspected savages and mado for the
boat. They were fired on, but got
back to the ship safely. Captain Har
ris then gave the tribe six hours in
which to surrender tlie men. After
the lapse ot six hours, he extended the
time three hours longer. He then
fired blank cartridges and the Indians
ran away. The village was then
shelled and afterwards barncd, arid
the two men secured. No ono was
killed.

fThat Valuable Property TblaX. of
the llowgate Plan.
(From the Louisville Courier Journal. )
Should the Howgate plan to reach
tbe pole be adopted as lbe test, and
another expedition be started oot in
search of the North pole, it would be
best to make some arrangement to
have a part of the expedition U-t the
irntb of the Symmes theory, while tbe
others are making alow approaches to
the pole as pr-p j'red by Mr. Howgitc.
1 Captain Tyson ot Captam IlaH'i
I I . ' .
Sedition has written a work cnllod
, - . i - -
a at.
"Arotio Experionco," in which he says :
"Though I do not believe in an open
polar sea, yet I know that the wild
animals that inhabit the northern re
gion go off north, every fall, and eomo
back in the spring, fat, with their
young following them." Such ia also
the testimony of Dr. Kane, Captain
Parry and Captain Ross, all of whom
made more than one voyago to the
extreme north. Iuto what country
or climate those animals go to spend
uiu winter ana prouuoe their young
nas never Deen discovered, , but that
they do go northward is proved be
yond a doubt. According to the
Symmos theory Uiey pass over tho
verge and into the polar opening open
ing, where they find a warmer and
moro gonial climate, and where they
find plenty to live on, and produce
their young, coming back fatter than
wnon they left. W hero these animals
can travel man can surely follow ; so
lot a part of the men follow in their
wake, and if they reach "Symrazonia"
(as Captain Symmes intended to call
that undiscovered country), they will
havo accomplished moro than any
previous expedition. ' Captain Hall
got about as far north as 82 deg., and
found opon water, and while encamp
ed on tho bank of an open lea, ho
wroto hW lost dispatch to tho secreta
ry of the navy, iu which ho Bays: "1
find this a ranch warmer country than
I expected, and it abounds with life
soal, game, geese, ducks, musk cattlo,
foxes, wolves, rabbits, partridgos, 1cm
iugs, etc, showing that ho was just
outcring "Symmzouia" when his sot
time for returning to bis vessel bad
expirod, and Le went back and was
taken sick and died. Captain Parry,
on his third voyage, got up to 82 deg.
45, and here found the sun bo hot
that it melted tho tar out of the seams
of his vessel, and even small flies came
on board of bis boat. What ice was
in eight was to rotteu to bear his
weight, and, being nearly out of pro
visions, ho had to turn back. Captain
Ross experienced warm winds coining
directly from tho north, when he was
furthest northward, and Dr. Kane's
men found open water, exporienocd a
gale for three days, blowing steadily
lrom the north, and once it became so
warm as to melt tho snow and ico
about them and far south of thorn.
What docs all mean? What must it
mean J A warmer climate is oorlainly
somewhere northward not yet discov
ered. Therefore, I say divide tho ex
pedition, when tho eighty-first or
eighty-second degree is reached, and
let ono party follow tho wild animals
northward, or "within the vcrgo,"
andNthe other follow Mr. Howgate's
plan.
Curative Power ofBlue falaeo.
Gen. A. J. Pleasanton has writton
a long letter to tho Chicago Tribune
on tho wonders of blue glass. Tho
glass which is used is a dark blue, the
color being derived from a prepara
tion of oobalt which is fused in the
pot with the other ingredients. It is
imported from France, and costs four
times as much as American window
glassy He gives in this letter his per
sonal experience as to the curative
fowers of blue and sun-light baths,
n October last be met with a very
serious; accident, in alighting from a
wagon in Philadelphia. His physl
cians said there had been no iracturo
of tho ribs or bones, but that he
would suffer a long timo from the ef
fects of tho fall. Liniments and plas
ters afforded no relief. Ho resolved
to try blue glass. ''In my bath room,"
be Bays, "I have a window with a
southern exposure, arranged with al
ternate panes ot blue and plain trans-
Iiarent glass. Uncovering my back,
. sat with my back to the blue and
sun lights which were streaming
through the window iuto tho bath
room. As soon as these lights began
to fall upon my back the pains began
to diminish, and at tho end ot halt
an hour they had ceased altogether.
Toward ovening the pains returned,
but they were much less than they
had been before I had taken the blue
light bath, anl during the night I
was easier than I had been previously.
The next day I took another bath of
blue and sun lights, which effectually
relieved me of every pain, and since
then, now about three mouths, I have
not had the slightest pain or sensitive
ness in tho parts affected three con
secutive sun and blue light baths hav
ing completely romoved every ill cf
f oct of my most serious accident."

Oregon senator.
Grover has as good a title to his'
seat as Hannibal Hamlin of Maine,
who yesterday objected to his taking
tho oath. Moro lies have peon told
of Grover than would fill a Congress
ional Jiecortt, bulky and wordy at it
is. Governor Grover performed his
iworn duty whon he declined to give
a certificate to Postmaster Watts, anl
upon precedents North, East and
West, English and American, gave
it to the only candidate who could, as
he believed, legally and mechanically
hold it. Not ono cont was nsed to
buy ap elector in Oregon, and it was
so testified in Washington. The on
ly money paid was to compensate
Cronin for his time and loss of law
cases in going to Washington, and tor
legal expenses in Oregon. The state
ments of an understanding between
Tildcn and Grover are pnro fictions.
The following from an interview with
Colonel Pclton rocontly is susceptible
ot the clearest proof :
Mr. Pelton Tho Republicans have
sedulously sought to draw tbo infer
ence from the "Gabble" dispatch that
Gov. Grover, of Oregon, ip formed
Mr. Tildcn in advanco of his deoision
that he would award the certificate to
Cronin, and that Cronin arrangement
was therefore a preconceived arrange
ment. Now, the fact is that Tilden
never saw or knew of this telegram,
and Gov. Grover Hates definitely that
he nover sent that dispatch, nor did
ho ever send a cipher telegraph in bis
life.
Reporter Was there any under
standing or arrangement with Gov-

Mr. Pelton Nono whatever. Gov.
Grover bad been supplied-with the
best of legal opinion and advice on
the subject of the ineligibility of Post
master Watts: The opinions and le-'
gal authorities received from Judge
Hoadley and other eminent lawyers"
had been telegraphed to him for his '
guidance, but that was all.
Reporter Mr. Patrick appear a
one of the signers of the dispatch an-"
bouncing that a Republican elector '
iiuVt be bonght up. Had he any
such instruction orauthority.
Mr, Pe!ton--None whatever. Noth-'
ing of tho sort was ever hinted to .
him. In fact, be bad do authority

and if any such authority bad been'
asked for it would not have been giv-'
