TUESDAY N'OVr.MllUIt 13 1883.
Mususirrj bat gone Democratic just as
every one expected It would do under the Im-
proved plan of holding elections in use there.
One other thing demontrated by the elec-
tion of last week is that the Eist has no com-
plaint to find with the administration of Presi-
dent Arthur and that he will be a strong can-
didate In the Republican National convention.
IlY using small type the Light really
gives as much reading mailer at many larger
and more showy newipspcrs and by boiling
down at tides into crisp paragraphs it effects
a great saving of space whereof the reader
reaps the benefit.
Tut election last Tuesday left the Demo-
crats In the sorry plight Fanurge was thrown
into on board the ship when the guns were
suddenly discharged. Rabelais gives all the
particulars with great fidelity. Fcr counting
chickens before they are hatched Bourbons
have no toualr.
The Republican success in New Vork st
the late election Is all the more paralysing to
the Democrats because just a year ago they
carried the State and Cleveland received the
enormous majority of 190000. This year all
that majority has vanished and Carr Repub-
lican candidate for Secretary of State re-
ceived 20000 majority.
THE Chicago Tribune says : "Desertion
is the most culpable of all army evils and if
It be tolerated for any great length of time to
the extent it hat prevailed during the latt
three or four years the value of the standing
army will be lost. Congress should give this
matter its attention and make the regular
service more attractive In order that It may
become more efficient as the bails for a
national army if one shall ever be required."
The Washington correspondent of the Ex-
press In a letter printed yesterday morning
betrays many of the Instincts of a hyena in
his scurrilous attack upon the memory of
President Garfield which Is all the mere un-
pardonable because It was altogether unnec-
essary. These fellows like the Express cor-
respondent who try to tell what they do not
know most always Indulge in a tirade about
dead Issues and then savagely attack the
character of some departed statesman.
The Texas Siftlngs obtiined a wide adver-
tisement by the hosx over the duel be-
tween Shehsn and Knox one of
the proprietors last summer but the
latest story to the effect that Mr.
Knox had slapped the fscs of a Kentucklan
on a train the other day for insulting a lady
lacks conildersble thickness lo be generally
believed. In the lanzusee of Biihoo. "the
public may be childish but they are not
chumps." I be last scheme won t woik.
SriAKINO of Brlgsdler General Augur
who was transferred to the Department of the
Missouri from here the Leavenworth Times
says 1 "He takes a prominent part In society
ana in me cnurcn and Is In every way a gen-
tleman whom it is a pleasure to meet and who
delights in making his visitor feel at home.
We hope Lis stay at this post will be so pleas-
ant that our people and himself will regret his
departure two years hence when under the
law he will be placed on the retired list"
JUDOE Balmnoer a Democrat is an ap.
pllcant for Federal judgeship from a Repub-
lican Fretldentand all the Democratic lawyers
endorse him with a gush that suggests an
Indnstilous working ol the wires and a thor-
ough concert of action. Don't Judge Bal-
linger and the Democrats know that Demo-
cratic Governors do not appoint Republicans
to Judgeships and that Jackson Van Buren
Polk Pierce and Buchanan appointed none
but Democrats to Federal Judgeships t For

D10 Lewis' Monthly for November has
been received. This Is a new publication
directed to the true science of health and
contains a number of excellent articles em-
bracing a wide range of subjects in that par-
ticular. It has betides a very creditable
showing of literary matter miscellaneous etc.
and will make on excellent relish villi the
other periodicals and newspapers of the day.
Sold for 25 cents a number or $2 50 a year
aod published by Frank Seaman 6S and 71
Bible House New York.
The Express of this morning drops the
tariff question long enough to say some-
thing about freethinkers and the supplement
published by the Light on Saturday. Like
all at tides which are wrilten in the sanctum
of that ps per it is extremely clear clear as
mud and if it has a meaning or a point it is
barely visible to the naked eye. The Expreis
should leave such topics severely alone and
keep up Its meaningless discussion of the
tariff and then its readers will not be unduly
distressed in an attempt to solve that what It
does not itself comprehend.
The saying of Cicero that "without a slrict
attention to the most rigid justice public alXiirs
cannot be advantageously administered" is a
sentiment which should be inculcated by
parents taught by the school master fulmi-
nated from the pulpit urged and enforced by
the'prcis and acled upon and illustrated by
every public officer from the highest to the
lowest. Public opinion must be made to sup-
port the laws because they are laws ere
crime and Lawlessness will disappear. The
press of Texas has an opportunity to shape
public opinion into conformity to the laws and
to cover Itself with glory by so doing.
The Galveston News is as full of enter-
prize as an egg Is of meal and is a credit to
the newspaperdom of Texas but ihe Bour-
bons are straining their consciences and
nerves to hanstricg it by dubbing tt a Re-
publican paper in disguise. The least show
of Independence of thought either by a poli-
tician or a newspaper is "proof as strong as
holy writ" ol having cast off the Boutbon har-
ness in Ihe opinion ol the Bourbons. The
News is weaker and more vulnerable precise-
ly where it should be strongest in its editorial
department but it is a live newspaper for all
that and will give llourbonism its death blow
If it has the pluck.
SrtAKINO of the elections the Philadelphia
Timesasays: "Pennsylvania has been liter-
ally torn from the Democratic supremacy by
suicidal Democratic hands and the time is
past when Democratic leaders can close their
eyes and remain silent. Had Democratic
power been faithful to the trust given it In
generous confidence Pennsylvania would
have voted Democratic yesterday as surely as
the setting of the sun and the electoral vote
of the State would have been settled In favor
of any conservative and patriotic Democratic
nominee but madness or Imbecility ruled the
faction that gained accidental Democratic
power and the Democrats must now start
their battle anew for 1SS1 broken (n prestige
and weighted with the pronounced failure of
Democratic reform in the debatable and
usually controlling State of Ihe Union."
Drunkenness Is the fountain whence flows
a stream of poverty misery contention dis
ease and crime which reaches every hamlet
village and cily In the land. The poor house
and the penitentiary are fed with perennial
supplies from this turbid fountain. It destroys
the domestic happiness of thousands of fami-
lies and causes nine-tenths of the murders
that curdle the blood. The grandest and
brightest Intellects have been paralysed by
alcohol. The Legislature must devise some
remedy for this tremendous evil existing laws
are Impotent and nugatory. Prohibition only
converts public Into private drinking and
really deepens the evil. Make drunkenness in
any public place a misdemeanor punishable
by a fine of $25 an I after a man shall have
been drunk as many as six times in public let
him be deprived of the right of suffrage be
made ineligible for office and be deprived of
the control and management of his property
until he reforms by two years sobriety. Pub-
lic drunkenness Is not only disgusting and de-
moralizing but it is menacing to the peace and
good order of society and therefore properly
punishable by the laws of all well regulated
nations. Try this plan.
The situation concerning the Judgshlp of
the bastern district or Texas Is amusing in
the extreme. It seems that about Ihe 1st of
August last Judge Morrill who is over 70
years old and has been more than 10 years
on the bench and posiesslrg the undoubted
right to "resign" or retire for life with full
salary wrote frcm California two letters one
to the members ol the Galveston bar and one
to Mr. Dart Clerk of the court stating that
he had resigned or retired and Invited those
who desired his place to apply. As Judge
Morrill had the undisputed right under the
law and the facts to resign or retire and to
power on earth not even the Attorney Gen-
eral or the President of the United States or
the Galveston bar could prevent him from so
doing he was pretty generally taken at his
word that he had retired and especially so
when In pursuance of his retirement be failed
to hold his court at Jefferson. This course
of the Judge brought forth hundreds of appli-
cants for the vacancy. Such a scramble has
rarely been seen or heard of in the Unloa
The rush for the place included good lawyers
effete postmasters school teachers school
superintendents preachers temperance lec-
turers old time effete played-out lawyers
carpet baggers from every State in the Union
fence cutters restless Democrats Green-
backers Republicans fence straddlers
and a few old grannys. After this
fierce contest bad raged for months
lo Ihe great delight of Judge Morrill no
doubt he appears from his summer trip and
says "I am Judge yet" and mounts the
bench. Judge Morrill will no doubt now
hold his scat as long as he lives which may
possibly be twenty years and thus comply
with the earnest wish of Ihe Galveston bar
with Judge Ilalliogerlas its head to the great
delight of the Galveston News and other
Democratic papers of Texas that have taken
such a keen Interest in this matter and to the
Intense disgust of the hundreds of applicants
for the place.
"Saw 1 Lay Mo Dortn to Bleep"
Was the pious utterance of a San Antonio citi-
zen as he hopped into bed Ihe other night.
Upon his wife reminding him that that was
the first occasion he had used this refrain
since their marriage and complimenting him
on his growth In grace he assured her earnest-
ly that comfort was conducive to a religious
lift and that since the bed room suit from
Wolfson's had come Into Ihe house he
thought he sometimes felt a call to the minis-
try. Yes comfort is a true missionary and to
secure this examine Wolfson's stock of furni-
ture marble and wooden top tables mlrrots
bed lounges of silk rep or carpet beds
matresses and everything in immense quanti-
ties and various grades that complete a first-
class furniture emporium Wolfson's is the
