Tho O. G. M. Co. are improving
their facilities for handling and work

Tho t mm way from tho lowor tunnel of
tho Ued Jackot to the mill is almoU
completed and when fin hi hod will save
at least (K) cents per ton on trasnporta
j tion of ores over traveling by freight I
teams. In addition to this the ore bins
arc built nt the mill in such ;t manner
that the ores are dmpp 1 fr un tli

the bins directly into the rock cruxher

is n hiff item when it is known that
the mill has crushing capacity of forty
five tons per day mid ore in sight to
keep it running for years. The com
pany have been very fortunate in sec
uring Capt. .1. U. Smith as the mana

terested in the success of the rump
that he will remain as superintendent
of the company's vast interests.

ong his support
especially such henchmen as tho In
dianapolis contingent, thero aro noth
ing but long faces. Of course, it is
natural to say that a defeat of tho ad
ministration party in an off year is duo
to the personal unpopularity of tho
President, but that excuso cannot fully
account for the result of last Tuesday.
One must look further to discover tho
Corporal Tanner, erstwhile Commis
sioner of Pensions, with characteristic
modesty, ventures tho opinion that tho
result in Ohio is to be attributed to tho
rage of ex-soldiers at tho way ho has
been treated by tho administration, a
reason most comforting to that gentle
men Assistant Postniastor General
Clarkson believes that fraud ruled in
Virginia ami vadieal laws had disgusted
tho people in Iowa and Ohio. Ho
believes that Mr. Eoraker's popularity
is matchless and that ho madon superb
fight. All those who care to talk, and
they arc not many, say that tho failure
to divide all tho spoils has had a great
influence upon tho rank and file of
Kopublroau party workers.
E.v-1 'resident Cleveland, who arrived
Wednesday night to attend tho Uay-ard-Clyinor
wedding and who is accom
jwnicd by his wife, as beautiful as over,
is delighted with tho result, and regards
it as all the other politicians do from a
personal standpoint. Blind to all tho
surrounding circumstances, ho attri
butes it all to the tariff question. Ho
says, "itis evident, Ibat tho leaven of
tariff reform has leavened tho wholo
mass. Tho West suffering from tho
unjust burden of thrift taxation, has
awakened. Tho work goes on and tho
people havo given their verdict Against
the robbor tariff."
Tho mob is no rcipoctor of pcrsans. On
Tuesday night a vaut crowd surged
about tho Post ibuildjng awaiting tho
returns, which tsro at. tho hour all in

Whon tho crowd roc ognizod Grant thero
woro deafening oho crs, which only in
creased whon-Gurli eld's picture appear
ed on tho canvas. When Cleveland's
features wero displ ayed tho cheering
became deafening. This continued
whon tho pleasant faco of Vice-President
Morton was v iowod. The opper
ators had saved P resident Harrison's
picture for tho last and whon it flashed
upon the transpare ncy, a low murmur
ran through tho cro-wd. A Jew spasm
odic cheers horo and thero in the-crowd
woro hoard, mingled, with hisses. Can
it bo that President JTarrison is not ex
actly tho god of tho common people?
Tho Jtopublicans of Virginia,, of

Exactly what splendor is to bo attached
to a tight in whi;h ono is defeated by
an increased majority is hardly visiblo
to tho miked eye. Tho truth is that
tho voters of Virgiuia aro tired of Will

to offer but the chance for spoils, can
not hold a largo party together becauso
it is not possible for him to keop his

expressed himself definitely us to the

An Indianapolis aquisition to the
White House stair is a gentleman of
unusual gravity and zeal of purpose,
aided and abetted by a magnificent
i ignorance of everything outside that
enterprising city. A month or so ago
thero was a reception to tho diploma-,
tic corps, and toward the windup a
dazzling diplomat in a wealth of gold
laco asked our Indian friend to call his
carriage. "Who is his whiskers with
the green pants"? He asked of a fol
low messenger. "Oh, the green pants",
responded tho other, "that is tho Irish
minister". And without further cere
mony the Hoosier stepped out to tho
lino of carriages and cried aloud "Tho
Irish minister's carriage this way!
"Thero wore a laugh of surprise among
tho coachmen, while someone down
the line yelled "some-body stole it."

A PLIA Foil SCHOOLS.
Sectarian Schools Entirely Uoeloss and a
Monaco to Our Froe Institutions.
With tho proposition to erect a Pres
byterian seminary in tho i ity of Union,
thero arises a wide and varied rango
of questions to bo considered by her
intelligent citizens. Tho erection of
tho school, at a glanco, is a judicious
and generous idea. Tho fact that Un
ion is to possess an institution some
thing higher in grade than tho com
mon public school, is a good substan
inl nilvnrtiK(mont for tho advance of
tho city and her people. This is noth
ing more than what every town should
have. Tho question of schools and
school erection is grand in itself, but
thero is an objection to bo raised whon
a school setting forth a mode of belief
and religious doctrine is raised by a
town. If tho Jpeoplo of a town want a
sectarian seminary, and can raise
funds to build such, it is their right to
havo it, to believe in it, to patronize
it; but on tho other hand, all schools
aro founded for tho common good of
all citizens. Thoy aro calculated to
advanco tho civil onlightonmcnt of the
rising race. In tho school houso and
collego aro framed and formed thoso
stays and props that lift tho grand
superstructure of government to a
model plane, and abovo tho level of
