WKDNESDAY AI'llII 11 1883.
When political reform takes root in Ohio
it will be the result of death-bed repentance
and politics in Ohio will be of the past. There
has been some tort of campaign going on in
Ohio ever since its "idee" was broached.
"The dangerous classes" says Dr.
Howard Crosby "are those who are engaged
in amassing colossal fortunes the giants who
tread ordinary men under their heel and care
not how much people suffer." What a singu-
lar man this learned man must be 1 How
lonely he must feel when he considers he is
the only person in the country who does not
aspire to be dangerous!
The resignation of Lorne as Governor Gen-
eral of Canada is expected and a report is
current that the position will be offered to Mr.
Forster the late Irish Secretary. Korster's
place in politics is peculiar. Though a
thorough-going Liberal he does not work
with the present Government ; in fact he
nearly wrecked it by his sudden resignation
of his Secretaryship. Hut he is regarded as a
RAiLROArs in Missouri are now required to
give 20 days notification before Killing freight
rates. The idea it is said was borrowed
from Congressman Reagan's inter-State com-
merce bill ia which provision was made for
Ave days notice. It is a commendable one
and the measures which are the outgrowth of
it may be beneficial in protecting the public
against unjust discrimination.
An election was held in Athens Texas a
few days ago for which there is no parallel In
political history. It appears that a majority
of the citizens of the place for various reasons
determined to break the power of the corpora-
tion and for that purpose decided to nom-
inate and elect none but colored men to of-
fice. The result was that for Mayor Lewis
Pearson colored received 26 majority over
M. E. Richardson white j for City Attorney
Jerry Murcliison colored three majority over
J. J. Faulk white ; for City Marshal Jack
McGruder colored 28 majority over A. A.
Faulk white. It was previously understood
that none of the officers-elect would qualify
and accordingly a new election will be held.
Stockmen will be pleased to learn that the
Government intends to conduct experiments
in Washington with the view of ascertaining
the origin and nature of Texas cattle fever
pleuro-pneumonia and other diseases which
have worked havoc to stock interests in this
and other States. To that end the Depart
ment of Agriculture has leased a tract of
ground which is now being put in order for
the reception of cattle to be placed thereon by
Dr. D. E. Salmon who has for a number of
years been employed by the department in the
investigation of diseases of cattle swine and
poultry. The measure will be an important
one to Texas and reports of the experiments
will be carefully noted by stockmen through
out the State.
Tub extravaganzas of genius are akin to in-

ble person present was him he subsequently

ded to true happlnesi. His counterpart we
find In this country. Adirondack Murray
Murray's lines of thought his versatility his
brilliancy his methods of expression have
often reminded us of Balzac. In character
too he is the same. Visionary always when
he was the beloved pastor of Park street
church In Iloiton when he descended from
the pulpit and with aching heart left the
shadows of the shapely steeple when he
buried himself in the wilds of Texas he rat-
tled on as genius gone mad. He is in New
Yotknowand he asserts lie owes but $500
not $12000 as reported but whether $500 or
$12000 his debt is proof anew that the mind
constructed for the pursuit of the higher arts
Is not the one suited to what are known as
Tiik red cut-throats the gross carelessness
of the agent at San Carlos reservation let
loose on a semi-defenseless people belong to
the band led by the Chieftain Juh whose
name has become on the border a synonym
for cruelty of the worst description. They are
Chiricahua Apaches and formerly lived in a
reservation among the Dragoon mountains in
Southeastern Arizona. In 1876 when they
were removed from there to San Carlos Juh
and his band escaped Into Old Mexico where
they remained a terror to the border country
for five years during which period they com-
mitted many atrocities. Eventually they were
induced to enter San Carlos reservation but
they remained there only nine months when
they again entered upon a depredatory ca-
reer. The main body of Apaches at San
Carlos have been credited with peaceful in-
tentions and indeed have established
grounds for such estimation by fighting those
of their own friends and relatives who were
hostile to the white settlers. Hut notwith-
standing the attitude of the majority and the
vigilance of the Judiah police who are noted
for their bravery fidelity and efficiency from
time .to time whenever removals of bands
of Indians to San Carlos have occurred some
of the lawless and criminal have
escaped and found refuge and allies
with Indians of similar condition in Mexico.
Whenever the strength of the bands is deemed
sufficient and a favorable opportunity presen-
ted raids are made across the border result-
ing in the loss by peaceable people of stock
and other property and not. infrequently of
life. They are familiar with the country
stand exposure and deprivation well seldom
become fatigued are provided with formida
ble weapons and disconcert plans of the mili
tary by carrying on a method of
warfare dissimilar in every particular
to the methods of civilized people.
Because these marauding Indians were
once of the reservation and are related
to the San Carlos Indians Government seems
determined to subject the San Carlos Indians
to suspicion and to find in their proximity to
the border a basis for the belief that they are
in communication with the outlawed bands.
This is manifestly unjust and will work great
injury may bring about the hostility of the
entire tribe of Chiricahua. The conduct of
the main body of the Chiricahua gives rise to
reason that they do not even sympathize
wilh the marauders. Government should dis-
criminate between the two parties and not re-
peat the error it has so often made of inflict-
ing on the innocent punishment due
the guilty ond then as If conscience-stricken
letting the guilty escape. The principtl
offender in this instance is the agent t the
reservation and while censuring him for his
laxity Government should not forget to abolish
the pass system which he sets forth in his
defense and is declared to afford numerous
opportunities for leaving the reservation to
join the hostile bands.

She sobbed as if her heart would break and
the kind-hearted neighbor who dropped in for
a friendly chat could not comfort her.
Had she received bad news from any of her
relatives or friends t No.
Were her children causing her trouble?
Difficulties in the church! No.
Perhaps her husband's business was not
prospering? But that was not it; her husband
had never been so fortunate in his business as
Finally it came out that her husband had
stopped drinking and that was the source of
"He is so changed now" she tearfully ex-
plained. "From a lively kind-hearted man
he has become morose cross and stingy.
Why when he was about hall
full he was one of the cheerfulest
men you ever saw and he never came home
wi'hout remembering to bring something nice
for us. No matter how late it was he'd al-
ways have something. Why I've let him in
many a time at 2 or 3 o'clock in the morning
when he would feel so bad that he would
drop right down in Ihe parlor and go to sleep
on the oilcloth but I lould always depend on
finding a turkey or a can of oysters or a ham
or something laying alongside of him. Yes
he was a good man when he was drunk. Hu
was fulltr'n a goose when he bought the
piano and my watch and everything else that
w.:'ve got that cost more thin 15 cents ; but
that's all over with now and I wish I was
dead" and she burst into a fresh flood of
teats and refused to be comforted. f Exchange
