It is noticeable in walking through the

The American bark Western Belle, 1034,
Bray master, arrived in yesterday from
Nagasaki. Her maintop is broken off
and she exhibits other signs of hard
usage. She was caught in the outer rim
of a cyclone and her crew are congratu
lating themselves that it was no worse.
The force of the typhoon or cyclone, or
zephyr, or whatever yon have a mind to
call it can be judged from the fact that
a steamship that happened to be a little
m nearer the center than the Western Belle,
7 though, having lour anchors out and with
a full head of steam on was sent broad
aide on shore by the force of the breeze
that blows on the Japan coast.

as follews: "Unclaimed letters enclosed
in envelopes upon which hotel cards are
printed, should not be returned to the
mailing office unless such envelopes have
written or printed thereon the words
'Return to," in addition to the hotel
card. Proprietors of hotels should omit
the usual return request from envelopes
supplied their guests, and guests using
such envelopes should be careful to desig
nate what deposition should be made of
letters sent by them in case they cannot
be delivered.

Chicago, Nov. 17. The Inlcr-Oecan's
New York special says: It is not likely
that tho national committee will remain
in New York more than a few days long
er now. Clarkson, the Iowa member,
left for home on Tuesday morning.
Treasurer Weeks has gone back to Pitts
burg, and Chairman Jones will leave for
the same city Wednesday night, as Foon
as the official vole is declared from Al
bany, ilr. Jonc3 said last night: "I
don't see that there is much to add to
what you have already had from me. If
we had been able to have gone back to
actual frauds perpetrated at the polls I
believe we would have carried the state
by a handsome plurality."
"When did you discover that this could
not be done?'
"Only on Monday last, after our last
address had been issued. There has
been a good deal said about that address,
but everything was said and done in tho
best of faith, on the representation of
responsible men from .all parts of tho
state. As soon as wo found that the
actual ballots in tho state had been, by
law, destroyed, and nothinc remained
but tho returns of election officers, we
were convinced tuat nothing but the
most flagrant frauds would induce the
canvassers to go behind the returns,
These did not transpire, and the result
you know.'
New Yoke, Nov. 17. J. S. Moore, a
well known writer on the tariff, says in
the Times this morning- "The defeat of
Blaine emphatically proclaims to the
high tariff oligarchy that Great Pan is
dead. To make inv inoanine werfectlv
clear, I will sa tho chances of higher
uuuus uu lunugn commouiues Uieu on
the 4th of November, and the chances
for tariff reform have, from that date,
taken a new and favorable departure.
What tariff reform now aims at is to free
raw material, largely reduce taxes on the
necessaries of life, and to causa a reduc
tion of 20 to 40 per cent, in the tax on
certain foreign manufactured goods.
We advocate a higher rate of duty, I
should say the present one, on wine, spir
its, tobacco, cigars, and perfumery."
New Yobk. Nov. 17. George Mott,
postmaster at Pearsalls, L. L, has writ
ten the following letter to Cleveland: I
desire to congratulate you although I
voted against you. 1 hold tho position
of postmaster at Pearsalls. Queens coun
ty, N. Y., and my placa is ready for my
successor; to tho victors belong the
spoils. I hope j-ou will turn the rascals
out, and if there have been any faults
committed go for them Be president
of the nation. God help you to do right.
New Yobk, Nov. 17. Tho World Con
tinues its efforts ,to make Conkling sen
ator, declaring that all tho Democrats
will vote for him, and also such inde
pendents as were elected by Republicans.
This is reproduced by several of tho
state papers, but all Democratic. No
man is so utterly despised by Republi
cans in tho state' as Conkling, as he him
self defeated Blaine in Oneida county.
It would bo political suicide fur any Re
publican to vote for him.
New Yobk, Nov. 17. The Times'' In
dianapolis special says: "The next leg
islature has a Demo'cratic majority of
forty on joint ballot. Tho majority is
large enough to almost certainly breed
internal dissensions, and upon no other
question is there likely to bo more vari
ance than upon the return of Voorhees
to the senate. Tho total voto of the
state in the last election was 491,914.
For governor, Gray received 214,840 and
Calkins 237.748,
Albany, Nov. 17. The stale board of
canvassers meet at the capitol Wednes
day. Official returns have been received
from only forty of tho sixty counties in
the state, and tho board will probably
take a rest for a daj, in order to allow
further returns to be received before pro
ceeding with the canvass.
SnELBWiLLE, Ind, Nov. 17. When the
news of tho result of the official count of
New York reached hc-ro Saturday night a
reporter immediately wont to nnnounce
tho fact to Hendricks. Whon told the
result Hendricks beamed with smiles and
said: Iam glad it is over; 1,147 is
rather too close to be comfortable, but it
is enough."
Albany, Nov. 17. President-elect
Cleveland's callers to-day were numerous.
There was a constant stream in and out
of the executive chamber all day. The
governor was accessible to most callers
until late in the afternoon, when ho re
tired to his private room, for consulta
tion with his political friends.
New York, Nov. 17. A special from
New Haven says: General complaint of
dullness is made by ironmongers up tho
Nangatuck valley and all through Con
necticut. Now one can seo employes go
ing home from shops between 4 and 5
o'ciocs, instead of pouring out of the
mills in droves at G o'clock, as when good
times prevailed. In some of the factories
the wages and hours of labor have .been
reduced, and in others men in service ten
years or more have been discharged.
Republicans and Democrats being treated
just alike.
New Yore, Nov. 17. Three thousand
five hundred employes in tho Singer sew
ing machine works, inElizabetbport New
Jersey, were alarmed last Saturday by
the announcement of the discharge of
six hundred of their number and that
five hundred more would be discharged
tms week, ine roason Given is that the

Ed. Asterian:
As the lime draws near when the coun
ty school superintendents may, accord
ing to the provisions of tho school law,
make such changes in tho text books used
in the public schools as may seem ex
pedient, tho people become greatly agi
tated and one would think to hear many
of them talk on the subject, as well as
from tho tone of some of tho articles
published in tho papers, that there was
some great calamity impending: that
every ono who have children who attend
the schools was going to bo impoverished
by the changes about to be made. It
does not matter whether the books in
use arc good, bad or indifferent, or how
long they have been in use, or whether
the change refers only to grammars, or
geographies, or readers or to tho whole
system, these people take tho ground that
any change is and always will bo unwise,
unnecessary and expensive. I am aware
that there is a pressure brought to bear
by the publishing companies, who nat
urally urge the merits of their books, and
that there is some danger of making un
necessary Changes, but when wo remem
ber that these changes, if made, must bo
by a majoritj of all tho county superin
tendents of the state and not by any one
or two or throe individuals; and that
these superintendents are as desirous of
pleasing their constituents, and of dis
charging their duty faithfully as any
omer oiuuiais, nnu mat no cuange is lia
ble to be made unless there is a demand
for it by the teachers generally, I think
there is no cause for such widespread
alarm as seems to prevail.
I remember that when tho Independent
series of readers were adopted in place of
tho old Pacific Coast series there was the
same cry about the expense and all that,
bat I know that the change was made in
accordance with a general demand of the
teachers throughout the state. I am
aware that if this business was left with
the citizens generally, or even with the
fathers of families,there would not bo
any changes very frequently; but I do not
consider the average citizen or head of a
family as competent to judge of the mat
ter; or, if competent, how many take the
trouble to investigate? How many even
visit tho public schools once a year or ex
amine the books used? Very few, indeed.
Therefore I say the teachers and superin
tendents are the only ones competent to
say when a change is advisable. The
suierintendent should be familiar enough
with tne teachers and schools at any
time, and on tho eve of any proposed
change should take particular pains to
ascertain thb views of the teachers, so as
not to make any changes which are not
demanded, or at least approved of by the
great majority of teachers.
1 think that in somo branches of study
the text books need not bo chanced. For
instance, wo havo a good series of arith
metics and 1 cannot sec what benefit
would be derived from any change in that
branch. Readers and geographies should,
perhaps, be changed more frequently
than any other brauch.
In readers you want something to in
terest as well as instruct, and, although
the series now in use is very good, I do
not know as it is good policy to uso the
samo one always. In regard to tho gram
mars now in use I know there ls consid
erable difference of opinion. Many
icacuers nave never nneu uiarK s gram
mar, although it has been in use a long
time in this state. Sill's little work, al
though very good in its way. is not con
sidered sufficient to answer all the re
quirements in that branch.
l do not write this for tho purpose of
advocating any particular changes at
this time, but would like to see the
subject discussed in a reasonable way.
a nave oeen senamg cuuuren to scuool
tor a number of years, and have four at
tending now, and of course do not wish
to incur any unnecessary expense: but I
think this universal growl at any sug
gestion of change Ls unreasonable. And
1 consider that tho changes made during
tho past six or eight years have been
comparatively few, and havo been gener
ally beneficial.
The actual cost incurred in making
any change is not so easily figured out.
It is something like the tariff question
there is a chance for considerable argu
ment both ways.
If the children in tho schools had their
supply of books sufficient to last them
during tho balance.of their school life, it
wouiu not oi course oe so dilhcult to es
timate tho cost of a change; but every
one who has had any experience knows
that children are continually buying
books of ono kind or other during the
whole lime they attend school. And the
more favorable terms upon which books
can often be obtained when publishers
are anxious to introduce them, especially
the exchange and introductory rates of
fered make tho actual cost of a change
much less than many suppose. I think
when one kind of Reader is used for a
long period they becomo tiresome and
monotonous, and although, as I have
heard stated, when a change is proposed,
tho children lose what interest they still
had in the old book. I believo tho in
creased interest, life and .enthusiasm
which the new book causes, more than
compensates for such loss.
I liko to see the public schools carried
on as economically as possible, and do
not want any changes made until it is
demanded by a majority of teachers and
those most interested, but I believe that
changes aro sometimes necessary and
beneficial. Parent.

lectures, and if possible to secure for our
citizens tho rich treat of hearinu this
celebrated lecturer. There is an inspira-
uuu ju.Kic.Ai' luuuuMj uoiui;j&ii il luitj
aro fresh and timely, and strongly pre
sented. Theso are not religious lectures, prop- '
erly, nor partisan in any sense; but deal ;
rather m the facts and philosophy of
current uisiory, logeiuer witn questions
of political economy and moral science;
just such questions as tho average Amer
ican citizen wants to hear.
The speaker is an independent thinker;
puts his ideas strongly; takes time
enough to deal justly with his theme;
and what, with the by-play of real or
atory, brilliant corruscations of thought,
will both interest and instruct his hear
ers. I am solicitous that the first lecture
shall be heard. Tho second will take
care of itself. Wir. Roberts.
