Tho Now York Sun which professes
to shino for all, has been found to bo
deceiving tho public. It Bends out
warmth only for its own favorite, Ben
Butlor. Tho peoplo obsorvo its hollow
pretensions, and tho Sun is fast being
eclipsed. Judging from tho meagre
attendance at tiio iiutler meeting last
Saturday ovening, which Mr. Dana
was booming as tho greatest demon
titration over to bo hold in Now York
city, tho management will soon bo
compelled to resort to tho schemo of
tlio l'lnlailelpliia j'ress in onlor to
Keop up us circulation.
A communication appears in tho Jit
publican signed by "Democrat" and
purporting to corao from Light Street,
charging certain candidates of tho
Domocratio party with obtaining their
nomination by tho "expenditure, of
suras of money," Ac. Eithor tho
writer Is not a Domocrat, or ho is ig
norant of tho fact that tho Democratic
party of this county is well organized,
nud that wo havo rules for the govern
ment of tho nominations, if uo is a
constant reader of tho Columbian wo
refer him to our issue of April 4th, in
which he can find the rules of tho
Domocratio party. If this is not con
venient, if ho will call at this oflico wo
can supply him with a bound copy of
tlio rules, wo ooiievo mo otiarges aro
mere rumors, and not founded on facts,
llowovor, If wo aro wrong in this
opinion, Mr. Democrat can lay his
chargos boforo tho Standing Commit
toe, who will tako proper action. We
will not shield any ono who has viola
ted the election laws in such a manner
as to merit his withdrawal from tho
ticket. But wo havo a means for tho
correcting of all those ovils within tho
party without resorting to tho publica
tion of anonymous communications in
tho columns of Republican Journals. If
such communications must bo pub
lished let tho writer's name bo given,
otherwise wo will answer no such com
munications, as thoy appear like per
sonal spleen, and havo uo inoro influ
ence than between the writer and re
ceiver of tho communication. Let us
havo the truth in all things.
THE BUTLER HZZLE.
Ben Butler's organ, tlio Now York
Sun, for soveral weeks past has been
shouting that tho Butler demonstra
tion of last Saturday ovening in Now
York city, was to bo tho largest assem
blage in our history, i noy woro ar
ranging for an atteiulanco oi trom
twenty to tinny thousand people, oi
all partic?, who wcro fast tumbling
over to Butler. Tho meeting was call
ed, aud Butler had tho satisfaction of
speaking to less than ono thousand
people IIo tdiotild bo satisfied that
oven that number would sit and listen
to his haranguo of anti-monopoly idcasj
when tho inteligcnt laboring man is
awaro of Butler's lncomo of 100,000
nnnuallv which ho falls to lavish upon
his much sought for labor voter. They
canot lay tho fault to tho laok of inter
est manifested by tho laboring man to
public demonstration, because on Mon
day tho labor unions of tho city of
Now York held n demonstration, whioh
was not politioal, and there wcro from
twenty to twenty-fivo thousand in pa
rade. If tho meeting is a type of the
Butler boom, (aud tho Now oik Sun
horalded in advance that it was) wo
find ho has come to bo recognized as a
grand fraud, and if extraordinary ef
forts arc not put forth from this until
election day ho will havo a hard time
to poll tho small vote ot uii'j.uuu mat
Weaver polled in 1880.
To be Sued for Libel,
It is rumored that Gen. Butler, tho
inevitable, is going to sue L. Lum
Smith, editor and proprietor of tho
Philadelphia Herald, for libel. Mr.
Smith recently invented, and is selling
an amusing game which ho mirthfully
terms "Political Euchre." Each stato
is represented by nn ordinary playing
card, bearing on its faco tho number of
electoral votes. Tho Republican States
aro all printed in black and tho Demo
crats in red. Blaino and Locan aro
played respectively as right and left
bowers whenever Republicans ar.0
trumps, Democratic candidates viae
versa. General Butler is most appro
priately played as the "Littlo Joker,"
and at times makes it screamingly em-
harassing for either Blaino or Cleve
land players. Tho winning side must
secure at least 201 of tho 401 electoral
votes. Mr. Smith can easily establish
the fact that Butler Is a joker, and can
call as witness both Blaino and Cleve
land. J'ottsville Chronicle.
The Germans for Cleveland.
.Tudgo Thayer of Iowa, in speaking
of tlio situation in that Slate savs :
"Tho Gorman voto is now a deciding
factor, and tho prohibition legislation
of tho Republican party has brought it
to us. A very small fraction of the
German vote, indeed, will stay Repub
lican. Wo will get more than nine
tenths of it. Wo expect to carry tho
State against tlio Blaine olectors."
Congressman Jeremiah Murphy, of
Davenport, Iowa, said : "Tho pros
pect in Iowa of beating tho Blaiuo
ticket is excellent. Cleveland and
Hendricks will poll ninety-five per
cent, of tho German vole of tlio Stato.
That voto amounts to 60,000. For
merly tho Republicans got fully 47,
000 of it. Tho Gorman voters that re
mained with tho Republican party
after the last natioual election feel that
they have been outraged by the last
Republican legislature ly the passago
of the prohibitory law with its enor
mous penalties and tho consequent
confiscation of largo amounts of prop
erty. There is no defection whatever
in tho Irish vote."
Representative Wallace, of Ohio,
savs the Germans of Ohio aro all leav
ing Blaine, and that Ohio will bo car
ried in October by tlio Democrats. IIo
Bays also that he has no doubt about
Wisconsin's being carried by tho Dem
ocrats. Gen. L. B. Parsons, of Illi
nois, says tho Democrats are having a
hurrah campaign and making very
great gains in German districts. They
havo a lighting chance thero and if
Ohio goes Democratic in October tho
Democrats may carry Illinois.
Ex-Congressman Elredge, of Wis
consin will go to tho Democrats, as
tho Germans will not voto for Blaine.

A CALM REVIEW OF THE PRESIDENTIAL
BATTLE AS THE TRUTH PRESENTS IT.
The real information received hero
from the West and South in regard to
tho political situation is very different
from the statements daily given to tho
public by those Republican journals
which aro strictly partisan. Within a
fortnight thoso who havo access to the
private information which comes hore
to Republicans havo been surprised nt
the unanimity of opinion that, instead
of the old-timo Republican majorities
in tlio leading Western States, there
aro plain indications that every ono of
them is rapidly becoming uncomforta
bly close. 'I his information which
comes by lotter and has been brought
also in person by mon prominont in
tho contest which is opening is from
supporters of tlio Republican ticket. In
all cases a want of money is noted. In
no single Western Stato aro Republi
cans giving ns they havo in other cam
paigns. From sections like tho Wes
tern reserve in Ohio, which havo been
heralded to the country as "on firo for
tho Republican ticket," reports como
from leading men of an apathy which
indicates a large etay-at-hoinu vote.
The truth about Ohib to day is that
many of tho Republican workers who
aro recognized as thoso who should bo
corieclly informed regard that Stato as
exceedingly close, with tho present
chances in favor of tho Democrats.
Tho same is undoutedlv truo of Wis
consin, and within tho last week Re
publicans aro beginning to admit that
Miohigan is no longer by any means a
sure State. Unless tho inside informa
tion coming here both to tho Republi
cans and Democrats is altogether at
fault there is no longer nuy chauco of
tho Blaine ticket carrying that state.
Thero aro even reports from Ohio that
givo tho Republicans uneasiness with
respeot to tho Congressional vote. Pub
lic men as prominent as any among
the Republicans havo written here
practically conceding another district
to tho Democrats and that tho Repub
licans must bo prepared to see that
Stato go for Blaino only by a rcdnoed
majority. A German who has been
observing tho conditions iu that Stato
and reporting hero, Bays that ho did
not find a single one oi his country-
mon who would voto tho Re
publican ticket. In brief, tlio Repub
lican situation, as recognized by
thoso managing tho campaign, la that
the states ot tho Central West, with
tho possiblo exception of Illinois, aro
to-day dobatablo ground, i ho nation
al commltteo, instead of being able to
confine its efforts as heretofore to Ohio
and Indiana, has suddenly been arous
ed to the fact that both Miohigan and
Wisconsin aro blipning away from them
and that it may yet bo possiblo for tho
jjcmocratfl to succeed without a singio
Eastorn Stato. Wathinnton Dls-

Tho ropubliean press so disappointed
nt not being ablo to find anything in

of tho letter. They havo forgotten

Vermont Staggers Under Blaine.
That tho Republicans of Vermont
havo elected their candidate for Gover
nor is a matter of course. Mr. Pingreo
is an exceptionally popular man, with
no opposition in his own party, and
under ordinary circumstances ho should
havo had at least tho majority of four
years ago, whioh was 26,603. "His ma
jority in the election of Tuesday is
apparently not much above 21,000.
This falling off iu so staunch a Repub
lican Stato as Vermont is not without
significance. It will contribute noth
ing to reanimate tho llagging Bhitie
At no time since tho war has tho
Republican majority iu tho September
elections iu Vermont in a Presidential
year fallen below 25,000, except in
1876, when a reduction to 23,735 'pre
saged the election of Tilden. This
year tho majority has fallen still lower,
aud that without any incrcaso in tho
Democratic vote. Tho Republicans of
Vermont had no reason to desert their
caudidato for Governor,but it is ovident
that they were not disposed to excit
themselves to start a boom for Blaine,
and the light voto is simply an indica
tion of tho prevailing dissatisfaction
with tho Republican party and its
Tho Blaino organs will doubtless an
nounce a glorious victory, but tho par
ty managers will know better. They
will understand that when disaffection
begins to show itself iu a Stato liko
Vermont tho situation is critical.
While this "first gun" determines noth
ing, it wholly fails to bring to the
Blaino cause tho encouragement it so
sadly lacks. A similar falling off would
loso the itepublicans many a state
they havo counted upon, and it will
need a very big majority in Maino
next week to re-magnetizo the boom.
The Metropolitans to ltoss Away With the
f resent Season.
It is understood that tho Metropoli
tan Baso Ball Club of Now York City
and tho Athletics of Philadelphia aro
to be consolidated at tho cud of the
season. For some time tho Metropoli
tan Exhibition Company, which runs
both tho ball clubs in Now York, has
been buying Athletic stock, and it now
has a controlling interest. With tho
last scheduled game in October tlio
Metropolitan Club will pass out of ex
istence, and there will bo only ono pro
fessional nine, the New Yorks, in Now
York City next season.
Tho Metropolitan Exhibition Com
pany will run tho New Yorks and tho
Athletics. Tho Metropolitan players
will go to streugthen both. Oi r, lloh
bert, Keofc, Estei brook, and Roseman
will go to tho Now Yorks, and the oth
ers will bo of tho Athletic of next
year. Mr. Mutrio will probably bo tho
manager of tho now Athletics.
The cause of this change is said to
bo tho poor support wh'ch has been
given to tlio Metropolitans. Although
thoy stand first in tho Association race
tho attendaneo at tho Now York games
has como to bo very small. Tho Now
Yorks, it is promised, will bo a fino

Tornado in Dakota,
The following are somo of tho pecu.
liaritics of tho recent tornado which oc
curred near Huron, Dakota : Twelvo
miles northeast of Huron a man named
Briggs had thirty-two head of cattlo
killed by being blown Into tho James
River and drowned, or thrown on the
ground and crushed. He had b!x head
of horses killed in tho saino way.
Eleven hundred I ushcls of threshed
oals in his granary were nil swept
nway. His wifo is a woll known but
termaker for tho Huron market. The
last threo months she and a servant
packed all the butter they had mado
in crocks, and stored it in the cellar,
several hundred pounds in all. When
thoy saw tho storm coming they wont
into tho cellar and crouched in tho
northeast corner of it, tho direction
from which tho tornado was coming.
It carried away and destroyed tho
house, scooped up every crock of but
ter and carried it away and it cannot
bo found. Tho women woro unhurt,
William Feikey had two hoises and a
colt in his stable. The stable, horses,
nnd colt aro yet to bo heard from. Myron
Kinney had two harnessed horses nt
his stable Tho horses woro seen to
go up in tho air and como down a long
distance away. About two hours af
terward they walked back homo with
nil tho harness off except the collars.
Tho Rov. George A. CrcBsoy lives a

hero was in plain sight from his house,
a milo distant. Ho iiys no wind was
stirring outside of tho storm belt, and
thero wcro no other clouds in tho sky.
At times two or threo tornado clouds

The Canscs of Labor Riots.
The labor riots in Ohio, whioh, but
for the wisdom of a democratic execu
tive, might havo led to untold misersy
and incalculable loss, suggest that tho
causes of these outbreaks ought to ho
inquired into with a vlow to prevent
ing their reRiirienco. There is no
higher mission of statesmanship than
this nud no means by which more good
may bo accomplished.
Labor liots aro comparatively recent
origin in this country. For neaily a
century the country odvnnood in mater
ial intorests and developed her abun
dant resources without these eruptions.
But within the past twenty years they
havo been coming with unpleasant fre
quency and dangerous consequences.
It is not difficult to discover the causes,
but tho remedies can only be applied
when thoy aro fully understood.
Labor riots havo their inducing
cause in tlio distress of laboring men.
When workingmon aro prosperous
thoy aro happy, contented and amiable.
When, however, want overtakes them
and their wives and children aro suffer
ing for necessaries of life, they becorao
restive, irritable nnd riotous. This con
dition is brought about by tho econom
ic system of the republican party.
Over protection whioh in timo leads to
idlenoss. From that come want, dis
content and disorder. Laboring mon

Four years ago we said
that a merchant's way of
dealing in black silk was a
pretty fair test of his dealing
in general, There are two
reasons for the statement:
the importance of black silk
as an article of merchandise,
and the impossibility of being
perfectly sure how any par
ticular quarter-yar of it is
going tt wear. It is worth
something in estimating a
man to know how he treats
an important matter that in
volves some risk to his client.
There are two attitudes
vhit,h the merchant may
properly take towards this
treacherous article of univer
sal dress. He may say :
We buy the silks of the best
mak .ss; use the best skill
we can command in choosing
them ; fNamine carefully be
fore we sell them ; and, if the
silks do not turn out success
ful in wear, the fault is back
of us. The maker himself
does not know how a partic
ular piece of his own black
silk is going to wear; the
skilful workmen through
whfisc successive hands it
has passed from the cocoon
to the last process of the
finish do not know ; no
body knows. The only way
to find out is by trying. You
have got to buy with what
ever of risk there is. We do
all we can to make it little.
We cannot take it away.
This is the attitude that he
must take, if he is frank and
fair; unless the maker bears
the risk. Somebody has got
to bear it ; the merchant
can't ; the maker can. If a
maker chooses to insure his
silk, rely on the merchant
to pass that insurance over
to the wearer and deal justly
with both, then the merchant
may say: This silk may wear
well or ill ; we do not know
how it will turn out; but, if
it goes too soon, we'll replace
the part that fails,
Either attitude is proper.
Either recognizes the un
avoidable chance of disap
pointment that lurks in every
black silk dress. One makes
provision for that chance ;
and the other notifies the
buyer that the risk is hers.
It depends on the maker
what the merchant can do.
Not every maker of black
silk, not every maker of good
black silk, not every maker
of the very best black silk, is
disposed to take the risk of
Some merchants of the
highest standing never guar
antee any silk to wear. We
choose the middle ground.
We warrant silks that are
warranted to us. If a re
sponsible maker is willing to
take the risk of his work and
trust us to administer his
guarantee, we do it. We
do not insist that he shall.
We are prompted to this
explanation by a series of
black silks which we sell with
agreement to replace with
out charge any part that may
fail to'be fairly durable. Let
it be understood that the
guarantee is ours as much as
if the maker were not behind
us; and that it is the maker's
as much as if you were not
looking to us for its fulfil
ment. The silks we guarantee to
wear well are these, three
French and two American:
Bellon's "Household" brand,
$1.25 to $2.25; Giraud's
" Cachemire Alexandra,'
$1.50 to $3; Guinet's" Cache-'
mire," 90 cents to $3 50 ;
Giver naud's gros-grain,
$1.25 to $2; and Cheney's
gros-grain, $1.25 to $2.50.
Each maker's silk has its
through its several grades;
and tiie prices rise with the
The price of silk is very
low now. The depression is
felt particularly in staples ;
less in "novelties," which
always bring extravagant
prices for the first few weeks.
We refer to-day to staples;
to silks of intrinsic value ; to
silks that never lose their
favor. Because they always
hold their place in dress,
they go up and down in the
market according to the cur
rent value of silk and labor
and tariff hardly ever ac
cording to fashion.
