lly tliu governer:
GKO. W. Mt'lllllllK,
Tho victory is ours and wo are
glad of it. Wo atu glad to know
that tho republican party Ih still In
favor with tho American people.
Wo are not disponed to crow or
bully over our opponents. They
(selected tho batt'o ground, they
ehoso tho weapon, they lmvo shown
all tho strategy and they are de
feated. Again all three branches of
tho government will lw in tho hands
of tho republican party and wo ex
pect to bee such prosperity through
out tho country as never has been
witnessed. Oregon Is especially
favored. Her representatives have
been hampered and hedged In by
their political opponents until very
little legislation benellelal to tho
state and Nortli l'aclllo coast has
boon passed. This will bo otherwise
now. If wo were disposed to crow
It would be over tho fact that tho
solid South Is broken tho new
wtatos of Washington and Montana
will Ih) established and New York
city no longer control tho election
of tho presidents.
Some of the American journals
are disposed to think that Lord
Sackvllle's unfortunate propensity
for telling the truth will ruin his
diplomatic career. They need not
be alarmed about him. He has,
from the English standpoint, done
no Intentional wrong, and tho con
sequence of his dismissal by Clove
land will probably be his elevation
Irom the rank of minister to that of
governor of Canada, or embassador.
Great Dritain considers tho Wash
ington ministry a small-potatoes
allalr at best, and, inasmuch as
Cleveland and Bayard lmvo acted
so cavalierly toward Lord Sackvllle,
we may look to see him sent to St.
Petersburg or Constantinople, or
some other European capital. Lord
Salisbury knows very well that if
tho Sackvlllo Incident had not oc
curred just before election Cleveland
would lmvo ignored it; and so ho
will not let Sackvlllo bo made the
victim of tho president's chagrin
Coi,. John A. Joyck, who wroto

With You," ivcontly tuild: "I lmvo
Perry Uohnont, whoso position as
chairman oftho house committee on
foreign ailtdrs entitles him to speak
with weight, says that ho sincerely
trusts that tills will be tho last time
that our relations with othor gov
ernments will bo made an issue in a
presidential canvass. Inasmuch as
tho Ihsuo in tho Sackville matter has
been forced by Cleveland, It will
appear that Mr. Uohnont does not
uphold the president's course.
So far as the ilsheries treaty Is
concerned, Its rejection by thesenate
would not lmvo caused a ripplo had
It not been that Cleveland used It as
a pretext for his blustering, empty
retaliation proclamation. True, tho
Bonato refused to ratify tho treaty,
oven though It was Indorsed by
Cleveland's friend, Morgan of Ala
bama, but that rejection, llko tho
dence, would not have been au Issue
oftho campaign had not Cleveland
Improjwrty made It such.
HOW IT IS TAKKN,
Tho New York Press to-day
"Harriwin and Morton lmvo been
elected, and the government of this
country goes back to tho party
which stood by the union whon tho
democrats tried to destroy It.
" 1 ho people have decided In favor
trilVrillitjl 111 !! l ixmitfi At tli.i
glolH). r lmvo had dealings with rtho American protective system
tho white, tho black and tho red. 1
sjKXik several languages. I lmvo
Kim prosjierlty and enjoyed It. 1
lmvo seen adversity; I know what
it Is now. I lmvo been in tho Insane
asylum and In tho penitentiary. I
have never yet been In n corner that
I didn't get out of It. 1 lmvo never
Uhiii broke very long, for Just whon
tho day Doomed the darkest tho dol
lar turned up somehow. I wonder
why I was barn."
At Albany they have a peculiar
way or "holding up" people. A
fow nights ago wvoml attempts
wore made to wllove pn-by of
thoir loos ohtuiifu.
Republicans put this question fairly
and squarely to tho voters of the
country In tho Chicago plat form and
tho emphatic airswor has come buck
that tho tarllt' must bo sustained.
1 ho American producers lmvo re
fused to make way for the foroiini
producers, and tho American wngw
onmors have not proposed to bo put
upon an equality with the pauper
labor of Europe. Tho consistent and
patriotio action of the republican
minority In congress In refusing to
pass tho famous Mills bill has boon
endorsed by tho northern voters,"
It is next to impossible to reform
those who have lost all faith in the
sincerity, honor or goodness of
human nature who believe that
people in general aro all bad, who
have been taught that all criminals
are heroes. In such hearts there is
a reservoir of rage and vice, invisible
save when some llamc, hotter than
usual, bursts momentarily forth.
And if our national life is growing
worse, if sosiety is growing more
corrupt, itis because our young men
and women, who are entering into
manhood and womanhood, hav ,
in childhood, fed their minds on
pernicious literature. Childhood is
the time when the ideals are formed.
In the dreams of childhood are
found the germs of many a man's
career. The seeds sown In the
mind of the child j'will germinate
into the character of the man and
ripen into the pleasant fruit of good
deeds or the Dead-Sea-apples of sin.
And so, if we would have citizens
capable, by voice and vote, of wisely
governing and directing the ati'aiis
of the nation, we must see to it
that the children of the land aie
early taught to be manly and honest,
pure and true.
Hut, apart from these considera
tions of the worldly power aud pros
perity of the nation, there is a
higher duty which we are called
upon to uillill- a duty wiiose per
formance or omission must be
accounted for when the great Judge
of all men puts to us the question,
"Where is thy brother?" Think
you that tho old, old answer with
which humanity has so long stilled
its conscience will suffice then?
Shall we bo absolved from blame
if we give tho answer of Cain, "Am
I my brother's keeper?" When
eyeballs glaze and ears grow dull
when the golden cord that binds
the soul together is frayed and
breaking, ami lire is cubing away
what will it matter to us then that
wo have been clad daintily, that
science has been our guide, or that
art has surrounded our lives with
all that is fair and pleasant? Better
far, if out of the darkness of the
Valley of the Shadow of Death wo
hear a voice speaking to us words
like these : "Well done, thou good
and faithful servant, enter thou in
to tho joy of thyiLord." Arthur
Dudley Vinton, in Nortli American
Review for March.
un, it is grand to see a man con
fronting tho crowd for their own
good seizing a truth, standing
by It, and, if need be, dying for it ;

Aphyslcian of Jacksonville, Fla.,
states publicly that those who drink
liquor aro less liable to recover from
yellow fever,aud Mayor Archibald of
tho same city, In speaking of the
ravages of this terriblo scourge,
says : "It strikes persons of alcoholic
habits fatrlly. The fever is of a
very mild form. Tho mortality is
only about fifteen per cont, and
taking out tho deaths of men
addicted to the uso of alcoholic
beverages, the mortality would not
exceed tlvo per cent. Two-thirds
oftho fatality is duo to tho fact that
persons lmvo been accustomed to
tho uso of strong drink beforo they
are attacked by tho fover, and in
every such case tho patient Invaria
bly illes, aud without reaction. It
Is a frequent remark on tho Jack
sonville streets that yellow fever Is
tho best temperance lecture tho
city ever had."
Of tho fate of ;tho famous "com
pensation clauses" brought forward
In tho House of Commons by tho
government, a writer in tho Loudon
Christian World says: "Tho li
censing clauses lmvo not been
killed by tho speeches of eloquent
statesman, or by tho votes of Houses
of Parliament. They lmvo been
killed by plain, simple men and
women, met together In Sunday
schools and chapel vestries or iu
'lodges' and "courts' aud 'temples'
aud kludred conclaves, who lmvo
signed .Jhelr petitions and voted
their resolutions, and beforo the
force of whoso outraged sense of
right, tho government, with Its
majority of a hundred, has uow to
