in tho result.
THE NATIONAL DEFEAT.
'Our success in thu gubernatorial
contest is marred, however, by tbo
shadow o( national disaster. In com

Tn closing Governor Hill said : "Per

this state aro opposed to illiberal ami

Stop Eleotion Debauchery.
It is possiblo that political debauch
ery controlled tho lato Presidential
election ; but if it did, it was not for
want of equal effort to debauch voters
by tho defeated party. If debauchery
won, it was simply becauso Quay
possessed greater skill or resources, or
both, than Barnuin could command ;
for both sides did all that was pos-iblo
to sontrol tho result by corruption
funds. It is possible that corrupt ef
forts, gigantic 'as thoy were, so nearly
equalled Ihcusclves in both parties
that the lesult waj not decided by do
bauchery t but the fact remains that
debauchery was the rule m every de-
batnblo state, and that Indiana was an
open auction for individual votes.
is this ureal and steadily crowing
politioal debauchery to coutinuo t If
so, it will logically increase with each
atioual contest, lor a slate or a voter
onco controlled iy coiruption lunos
ill not only always be in open market
but debauchery will rapidly Bpread
among tho peoplo aud require increased
conuption funds lor every contest.
And it is idle to preach morality to
party leaders. While religious and
moral zealots will freely contribute
money for political debauchery, leaders
will commend it and rival voters will
ffer their votes in tho market-place.
The evil, now colossal in its proportions
can be overthrown only by tearing up
tho wholo system of Presidential elect
ions bv Slates.
And why should not the pooplo of
ho United States vote directly for
resident and Vice President, from
Maine to California, and tho candidates
receiving tbo highest popular vole bo
declared elected 1 It is in pufect har
mony with tho theory of popular gov
ernment and why adow the expression
of tho people to become tho plaything
of Klectoral Uolleges 7 It is not pro
tended that Presidential Klectors oxer
cis any discretion in voting fr,r Presi
dent aud Vice I'nsident. J. hey woro
oricinally intended to exeiciso an in
tellig- nt and dispassionate judgment
in voting for the two fir-t ofliccs of tho
Republic, but now and ever since the re
tirement of Washington, Piesidential
Electors have been as positive partisans
as waid heelers, and tho whole theory
on which tho JUoctorai uoiicgu was
base i, perished before tha advent of
tho present century.
Four years ago Urovor Cleveland re
ceived a popular majority over James
ti. lilaino ot 1)2,01)1), and yet a change
of COO voles in New York would bavo
made Blaino Piesidont. This year
Benjamin Harriscn will have a popular
majority over Urovor Ulovoland ot
probably o9,00t, and yet a change of
0,000 votes in New York State would
havo re eleoted Cleveland. In 1884
the 81,000 majority tor Blaino in
Pennsylvania had much less voice in
deciding tho Presidential contest than
tho 1,100 majority lor (Jloveland in
New York ; and now the 70,000 ma
jority for Harrison in this state iB much
Itss potential that) tho probable 10,000
majority in tho Empiro State. Less
than 400 votes give Cleveland C
Electoral votes in Connecticut and 30,-
000 votes give Harrison ouiy 4 Eleo,
toial votes in Vermont. In Texas
120,000 votes give Cleveland 13 Elec
toral votts, and probably less tiian
.ri,000 votes give Harrison 15 Electoral
votts in Indiana.
It is this cumbrous aud senseless
electoral system that invites the de
bauchery ot voters in every close state,
aud it is also a const int menace to tho
popular will in tho election of a Presi
dent. It should be promptly a olished
as tho fruitful parent of electoral crimes
and as tho most threatening of all tho
patent perils to frto government. If
the people of every Stalo and Territory
were author xed to vote directly for
their favorite candidates for President
and Vice President, with tho assurance
that the candidates receiving tho larg
est number of voles would bo declared
elected, the- debauchery of close States
would end at once. What could it
matter then whether Now York, Con
necticut, Indiana, West Virginia or
California gavo a fow thousand more
or less for a particular candidate 1 A
majority in a particular State would bo
ol no practical moment, and the miss
tons of the piofesstonal corrupter of
votors and of professional traders in
votes would end. Is this not tho trno
and safe way for a free govornmont to
elect its rulers T
A direct vote for President and Vico
President would not only end tho now
great and steadily growth in debauchery
of uloso states, but it would end all ftp
prehensions of dispute as to the election
Tho closest popular vole in all our
Presidential elections since the organ
ization of the government was in 1880,
when Garfield reooiTod about 7,000
popular majority over Hancock. In
all other ojntests from Washington
down to tho battle of 1888, t ho popular
majority has been so deculedtliat nono
could ntteniptn toassnil it. Anoth
er strong roasog for abandoning the
Electoral Collo e is in tho fact that it
has twice defeatod candidates to whom
tho pcoplo gavo decidedly tho largest
vote. Jackson was defeated in 182 1
when ho had 50,000 majority over
Adam0, anil Tilden was dufcated in
1870 when the pcoplo had voted against
naves by .'au.wu majority.
Is it not time to end tho appalling
political debauchery of tho present age
and end ill peril to the popular will, by
abolishing tho Electoral College and
allowing tho peoplo to elect 1'resldent
and Vice President by a direct vote

A Hawk Attaoks A Man

Schacffer of this placo had a remark

tho result of the attack.
Whether, tho hawk concluded that
Schacffer was there to autagonizo it in
its efforts to get' a dinner, and deter
mined to resent interference, Schacffer
is not abletO'.explain, but ho was not
long in discovering that he himself
wa the objccV of the big bird's attack.
It swooped down upon him with ter

alighted on tho ground at tho roadside,

Hchaeucr was greatly surprised at
this attack, but, supposing that it
wouldn't be much of a trick to whip a
chicken hawk, ho got out of his wagon.
Ho had scarcely placed his feet on the
ground when tho hawk rushed at him,
half flying and half running. Schacf
fer met tho bird with a vigorous kick
in the breast, but that, only had the ci
feet of adding to its race. Tho man
quickly made up his mind that ho had
met an antagonist a little louglipr than
he had counted cn, and, grabbing a
stick from tho roadside, went into the
fight in earnest.

Ho was so badly hurt that ho had
to return homo and get medical attend

lucky enough to find tho club within

of tho human pnsence, is undoubtedly
without a precedent.

were mutilated in tho same horrible
manner 09 were thoso of tho other
women murdered in Whitechapel.
Tho victim, liko all tho others, was a
disreputable woman, bho was married
and her husband was a porter. They
had lived together at Fpasmodio inter

been Lizzio Fisher, but to most of. the
habitues of the haunts she was known
as Mary Jane. Sho had a room in th
house where sho was murdered. Sho
carrioi a latch key, and no one knows

How to Live to a Good Old Age,
Tho first lesson to bo taught and
learned is : thai, all disease is tho re

and that thoso diseases which are en

add future ages bo freed from their
Tho next thing to bo taught is tho
laws themselves and with tho laws,
and of even greator importance, tho
habit of obeying them. We know a
great deal more than we put inpractico.
This is tho fault of tho common modes'
of health teaching. Our newspapers
and periodical literature contains a vast
deal of popular instruction iu theso
matter. Thoy aro treated of id ,an
abundance of well-written books which
aro within easy reach of all who caro
to read them. Oar schools are taking
hold of the good work, and instruction
in iiygienn is fast coming to be recog
nized as an essential of even an element
ary education. But all these do not
reach tbe evil, or if thoy do, ihey only
touch it on tho surface.
Our schools aro full of good gram
marians who do not use respectable,
Euglish in common conversation. So,
too, they may be full of glib reciters of
tho laws of health, who do not.observo
a Binglo one of tho laws they hayo
learned. 1 ho main point is to secure
obedioncc. The greatest criminals are
usually well versed in the laws of the
land ; but their knowledge does not,
avail to keep them out of the peniten
tiary when tbey have broken these
laws. Neither will a knowlcdgo of tho
laws of health keep a man from being
sick, so long as he does not live up to
his knowledge. Wo ore creatures of
imitation. Example counts counts for
more than ptec-pt. The patent knows
the law, aud the child knows it too.
When tho parent keeps it, then the
children will keop it also. It docs little
good for a child to learn at school that
tho food should bu properly mast cat-id,
when three times every day at homo
ho sees a huugrv group crowd about
the table liko pigs around a trough,
and bolt their food as nearly wholo as
it can b? made to go down. Tho child
whose mother gives it a bito of some
thing to eat ovcry timo it cries for it,
will not be in a condiliou to profit from
an understanding of the law that food
should not be taken between meals,
until it is too lato for tho knowlcdgo
to bo of much service. The law of
pure air aud proper ventilation mav be
taught over so plainly in tho tex -Looks,
out 10 tuo boy wno is urougui up 10
sit and to sleep in a close, unvt inflated
room, foul with the breath of living
boiugs, aud shun fresh air as ho would
a plague, thu knowledge will be of
little avail. While his father's cellar
is filled with decaying meat, vegetables
and all manmr of tilth, and tho cess
pool smells to heaven from beneath tho
kitchen window, all the teachings of
tho pchools will not prevent his having
typhoid fever, or diphtheria, or sonio
lorin ot lilt li disease, when tbo summer
sun calls into activity tho germs ot
disease which are latent there. If
liquors aro kept upon tho sideboard
aud wines are served upon tho tablo in
his home, not all tho teachings ol all
the temperance toxt-b.ioks in the land
can bo relied upon to produce in him
habits of sobriety and total abstinence.

which will lessen the rate of disaso
and death to-day, and develop a sttong

father and mother by seeing them con

comi to follow them in his own case,

Tho decision of the Supre mu Couit of
