Spring. This makes ticket No. 3 and
is likelj to be followed by another to be
nomimated by the labor party. The
personnel of the ticket is certainly a
sober set of people, but as to its possi

for it this year than there was in any
of the former years.
EVEN the Republican press of Phil
adelphia gives honor where honor is
due in mentioning of President Cleve
land's attendance of the Constitution

in the highest terms of Cleveland's

during his short stay in the city of
brotherly love. They say he made le
gions of friends and predict that his
western tour will have the same effect
because he cannot fail to make a fav
orable and lasting impression wher
ever he goes. And finally they ac

popularity makes a very strong candi

stronger than James G. Blaine to get
away with Cleveland.
PRINCE BISMARK, tho German Pre

THE fairs, centennials, excursions,
picnics, and most of the farm work is
now past and the democratic voters
should find time to pay some atten

is not n particle of doubt that the

should be elected by a large majority
and to do that it will be necessary to
organize in the several districts, and
see that every Democratic voter votes
Democratic from the head to the foot

FRUITS OF HONEST GOVERN
Receipts lurgely Increased—Receipts
SPECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE TIMES.
WASHINGTON, September 25.— The
fruits of houest, busi uess-like govern
ment are strikingly exhibited in the
administration of the revenue laws,
which are the same under Cleveland
that there in operation under Arthur.
It is natural that revenues should in
crease to some extent because of the
steady growth of the busiuess of the
couutry, but the invariable tule hereto,
fore lias been for the expenditures, or
costs of collection, to increase all the
time, whether the revenues increased
or not. In both the revenues from im
ports and internal taxes, there has been
a steady and decided increase of levenue
and as steady and decided decrease of
t he cost of collection under the piesent
The figures ate taken from the offici
al records of lhaTieasury Department
and are thoroughly reliable. The fol

The cost of collection in the last year
of Aitbnr's administration was 3.77
per cent : the cost in 1880 was 3.30
per cent. The same results are shown
in the receipts from internal reveuu e
and expenditures, as follows :

it is these substantial and beneficent
results of administering the govern
ment on business principles, instead of
wasting the taxes of the people it.party
plunder, which make Cleveland strong
with the people and compel politicians
who aie ever on the hunt for spoils to
support the policy of the President
even against their own inclinations.
The one inflexible rule now In force in
all public departments is that every of
ficial must perform his duty with the
same fidelity that would be demanded
in any business employment, and that
kind of government, tbe great mass of
the people of all parties want.
The Effects of High License.
(From the Pbila. Sunday Times.)
The new license system which lias been
adopted in several states, Pennsylvania a
mong the number, has not in any State
been in operation long enough to furnish a
complete test of its effect in reducing the
sales of liquor or the amount of drunken
ness. In Pennsylvania very few of the old
licenses have expired and it will require
nearly a year yet before a comparison can
lie made as to the relative number of drink
ing places under the old and new laws. Un
til the old licenses have all expired and only
the high-priced licenses exist all attempts at
comparison will be valueless and mislead
In Nebraska the law has been in effect
some time, and comparisons can be made
that are of some value. Omaha, the largest
city in the State, has 200 saloons, or one to
every 500 inhabitants. The cost of a license
is SI,OOO. In Syracuse, New York, where
a license costs $75, there is a saloon to every
L3O inhabitants, and in Brooklyn one to
every 170. Nobody would pretend that the
rushing, go-ahead people of Nebraska's
chief city were not as much inclined toward
drink as those of the two New York citlos
mentioned. The difference in the number
of saloons in proportion to ]>opulation is
clearly owing to the higher license fee.
In Minnesota, where the high license law
has been in effect since July 1, comparisons
are being made by the St. Paul Pioneer
Press with the number of licenses granted
under the new and old laws in the same lo
calities. The license fee is SI,OOO in all
towns with more than 10,000 inhabitants
and SSOO in all towns with less than that
number. A canvass has been "made of all
the considerable tow-ns and cities in the
State as to the workings of the new law.
Replies have been received from almost the
entire State. The result as shown in the
towns in which the law is in effect is a de
crease of fully one-third in the total num
ber of saloons, hut 1,100 licenses having
been granted where 1,650 were in force be
fore. The saloon-keepers who have paid
the high license as a rule are disposed to aid
the authorities in the enforcement of the
law and the suppression of illegal selling.
Beside reducing the number of drinking
places in a marked degree the increase jn
revenue js very great. In Minnesota, while
the licenses have been reduced one-third in
number, the amount realized to the muuici-
palitics has increased one-third. In the
large cities of Nebraska the public school*
are supported by the revenues derived from
licenses. Thus," while Iho amount of drink
ing and the evils attendant thereon are no
ticeably decreased, the increased revenue
derived from the restricted tratlic becomes
an Important item.
There is every reason to liellevo that the
x|M>rienee of Nebraska and Minnesota will
lie rc|teatod in Pennsylvania ami every oth
er State where the high license system is or
has lieen adopted. It will not bring In tho
millennium or abolish drinking entirely,
hut it has already to some extent and will
in the future to a greater extent restrict and
demiuish tho evils attending tho traffic. It
will lie wise, in view of these results, to
give high license a thorough and effective
trial to enforce tho law with all its wise and
necessary restrictions and observe itseffocts
before discarding it as useless or Ineffect
ive. So far as It has been triisl the results

WASIUNGTGN, I>. ('., Sept. *Jti, IHM7.
That the action of the Government in Is
suing a call for the purchase of fourteen
millions in Kinds was wise and timely is
the opinion of able and exjierieiiced finan
ciers In all portions of the country, and there
is also a general finding that a financial
crisis was narrowly averted—due directly
to the constant and enormous absorption of
the currency by the immense surplus that
continues to accumulate with startling jwr
sistcncy. 1 know of certain staunch and ex
tensive business tirins, in some groat com
mercial centres of tho Union, that were ah
Bolutely unable to place loans, with the K-st
collateral, at JO per cent Tho ready re
sponse to the Treasury's measure of relief
has beeu so satisfactory that it Is believed
that there will bo no further tightness gene
rally seriously felt in the money market
until Congress will have the opportunity to
provide |H*rninnently for the country's finan
cial ills, brought on by the canker-worm of
our body politic—the Treasury surplus—
our troublesome heritage from tho unsound
fiscal policy of the Republicans.
The President and Secretary Bayard had
a confluence lasting nearly a day, tho past
week during which several Congressmen
were denied audience, and it is supjHMcd
that some affair of grave import—perhaps a
solution of the fisheries problem—was un
der discussion, though nothing has yet
transpired to indicate the subject matter of
The Commissioner of Internal Revenue is
preparing a statement that will show to
what extent the Government receipts would
bo decreased by a total repeal of the inter
nal revenue taxes, and the result, so far, is
interesting in oue aspect, at least as show
ing a decided change in the bibulous ten
dencies and inclinations of the citizens of
the United States. It appears that as coin
pared with the previous fiscal year there has
iieen a great falling otf in the manufacture
of whiskey—the decresed taxation amount
ing to nearly three millious and three
quarters—the decline having been noticed
for a number of years past. But, ou the
other hand, the manufacture of beer is so
rapidly increasing that It may he termed
the national beverage,—the increasing tax
ation of the past year showing a gain of a
bout two million aud a half dollars over the
preceding year. At an early date the Com
missioner proposes to have an analytical
test made of every brand of American beer,
as it is alleged that many brewers use more
alcohol in making their beer than the law
allows- hence itis thought the analysis will
can sco sensation. The Commissioner of Iu
ternal Revenue states it as his belief that the
steady decrease in the manufacture of dis
tilled spirits is due to tho rapid growth of
tern iterance reform in this country.
While all is so quiet in politics—this be
ing an off year—it may startle, if it does not
awe your readers, that a new Preshleuta!
ticket, and a wonderful combination it is,
too, linking as it does two of the great
names of the nation, has been launched here
in the Capital. And well may President
Cleveland, as he realizes the strength of
this "combine" quake in his boots, as he
sees his vision of a second term vanish into
thin air, for how does he dare to opjMse tho
Presidential aspirations of those mighty men
of renown, those eminent statesmen who
will favorably compare with the fathers of
the Republic—Lincoln and Douglass ! Yes,
I repeat it, Robert Lincoln and Frederick
Douglas. The glorious deed was done at a
banquet given lo Douglas. u..7

of emancipation day, and though, by a
strange coincidence, Robert, the son of l is
father, happened to be in this city at
the same time, I do not know that lie is
committed to the movement, yet his presence
here on such an occasion may be significant.
The frisky ami wayward Kiddleliergcr,
feeling that"he has been snubbed by his Re
publican Senatorial associates, threatens to
give the majority trouble next winter by
voting with the Democrats and tying the

erratic Virginian, which judging from his
past course, will bo quite often. Kiddle
liergcr will be tho pivotal power of the
Senate, and he will make the most of his
exceptional opportunity to keep the Re

APACHKB ON THE WAR PATH.
Two Hostile Hands MarchliiK South
From the San Carlos Reservation.
TUSCON, Arzu, September 25.
Most intense excitement prevails in
this city over the reported outbreak of
the San Carlos Apache Indians. A
courier arrived at Pantano late yester
day notifying all the settlers in the val
ley that two bands left the reservation
and were marching south. This is
supposed to be the result of the k illing
of Ilorton, the poet trader, who was
murdered by the Indians Friday.
The outbreak bids fair to be of a very
serious character. Already two bands
are reported to be out and if such
is the case destruction of life and
property will be great. Kskimizin's
baud will most surely j-io forces witti
the San Carlos Apaches and make a
force of neatly 2*l) well armed and
equipped hosliles. No news has been
rec dved, either at Benson or Wilcox.

TerrlOtc Storm In Texas.
BROWNSVILLE. Te*. *"P*- 23. —A
cyclone passed over this section on
Wednesday night, the storm being ac
companied by a tremeud us rainfall,
whicli reached by actual measurement
ten incites. Seventy small houses in
this citv were blown down and three
hundred others partially damaged. Tele
graph wires were badly disortahixod,
and this prevented earlier infoimalion
of the disaster reaching the outside
world. The total monetary loss is be
lieved to be $1,000,000. No one was
killed, but many sustained injuries.
The village of Santa Cruz, opposite
Brownsville, was eutiiely submerged
for several hours The Rio Grande
rose rapidly and raged like a sea, the
back water overflowing many miles of
fertile country. The wind reached a
velocity of over eighty miles an hour,
blowing for two hours.
In Matamoras dozens of houses of
the better class aud 150 to 200 houses
were prostrated, while4oo to 500 others
are unroofed. In the country on the
American side of the river incalculable
damage was done. Countless numbers
of cattle and sheep have been lost.
Crops of cotton,corn aud sugtrcane are
completely prostrated and destroyed.
In Brownsville the chief suffeiers are
among the poor. Between sixty and
eig lily jacals, or cheaper class of dwell
ings have been blown down and fully
three hundred have been partially un
roofed and rendered unhabitable. There
is great suffering among the poor,
many of whom are without resources.
AN OLD MAN'S CRIME.
William Showers Confesses That He
Killed Ills Two Little Grandchil
LEBANON, Pa., Sept. 23.—William
Showers, the aged murderer of his
grandsons was brought into court at
9.30 o'clock this morning to be tried.
Some thirty-nine witnesses, all resi
dents of the vicinity of Annvllle, where
the murder was committed were in
court. A. Frank Saltzir, esq., counsel
for Showers, is confined to his room, se
riously indisposed, and District Attor
ney Ehrgood stated that he was willing
to postpone the case until to-morro*-,
A sensation was then created by the
handing of a written confession to
Judge McPherson which covers Ave
pages of legal cap paper. Showers con
fesses that be killed the two little boys,
as charged inthetwo bills of indictment.
Judge McPherson read the confession
amid an almost breathless stillness in
the court room. Betsy Sargeant, the
would-be housekeeper of Showers at
Annville, and who was to have married
him, is implicated as an accessory in
the confession. Showers says the
woman held the light while the terri
ble deed was done, and while he buried
tnem, and that she assisted him from
beginning to end. The woman's friends
do not believe she can be guilty of so
heinous a crime. Her arrest was made
this afternoon. The witnesses were
discharged and Showers was remanded
to prison, the confession having ren
dered a trial unnecessary. The hoary
headed murdcrei will be brought up
for sentence in a few days. Drs. I.
Reilly Bucher, Samuel Weiss and J. R.
Beckiey, made a thorough examination
of Showers' condition. They discov
ered his alleged illness to be, in their
opinion, feigued. Showers appeared to
be yery feeble while in court to-day.
