A Plaih Case. Flsowhere in this
issue will be fouud an excellent article
entitled "Money in Politics," which wo
copy from Colonel Forney's Projrm,
of tho 29lh ot January. Tho article
deserves an alter.tiro perusal by everyone.
(iARrm.o'a StcHKTAnv The loyal
organs have it that Prof. O. C. Hill,
Principal of the Normal School at Or
ogon, Holt county, Mo., will be Trivato
Socrolury to Prca'dent Garfield. Pres.
ident Hill was one of the faculty at
Hiram, Ohio, when General Garfield
was Presidont of that institution.
Therefore ilahone is, like Garfield
about the Treasury, in a Tory tight
placo. Jf ho votes with tho liepubli
cans, the Democrats ot Virginia will
abandon bim. And if the new admin
istration would give him tho offices
for his vole, the Hcpitblicar.a of Vir

"Virginia and Ohio may be tho moth

Hawkins to Tennessee, and Governor

Tim Men who Furnished Funds
to Stxi tiK Garfield's Flection. Tho
money contributions of leadingcapital
ists and corporation jobbers to tbo
election ol Gut field last Fall, were com
municated to "Gath" the other day
in Phila lelphia. Thoso contributions
were to carry tho October States. Jay
Gould gave 1100,000, the largest sin
gle subscription, and afterwards added
10,000 to it; Vanderbilt gavo $20,
000; Morton, Bliss k Co., syndieato
bankers, $15,000; Standard Oil Com
puny, $5,000. A Committee of bank
ors in addition raised $ 100,000, and ro
fused to take a subscription under
$5,000. Don. Cameron ruised $10,000
to beat Bayard in Delaware. And the
would-be Senator, Oliver, is credited
with raising $15,000 in Pittsburgh for
Indiana. He did better than that.
When wo read ot tho subscriptions of
these syndicate and subsidy gentlemen
wo begin to understand the fight the
'Republicans are making in Congress

catting off of funding perquisites.
The Old and thi New Wat. An
exchango remarks : "The growing ten
dency of rich men to uso their monoy
to elevate themselves into the United
States Senate is to be exemplified in
tho effort of Mr. Oliver to got thoro
from Pennsylvania. Mr. Sharon has
been thero Irom Nevada, and Mr.
Jones from the same Stato, and Mr.
Fair is coming. The rich men of Mas
sachusetts kept Mr. Wcbstor in the

It might be well enough in these mat

Getting a Foothold. An exchange
says that Jay Gould is getting ahead
of Vanderbilt by having his attorney.
Stanley Matthews, nominated by Mr.
Hayes as a Judgo of the Supreme
Court in place of Judge Swayno, re
signed. It tho Senate should confirm
Matthews, Mr. Gould will have consid
eruble standing boforo tho Federal
Court, from the fact that one of his
chief Atlorncys occupies a seat on tho
A Vert Sensitive Man. A brother
ol the Secretary of War Ramsey
residing in Minnesota, took a great in
terost in trying to elect tho War Sec
retary to the United States Senate.
Having failed in his undertaking ho
was so mortified that ho oommittod
suicide. Ho was rich and when his
will was opened it was found that ho
willed to a niece $100,000. She is just
fifteen, the papers say.
Tho story conies from Cincinnati
that Garfield is disposed lo pnt Gov.
Foster In his Cabinet as Postmaster
Gencral, but the Conkling influence is
antagonistic. With the enormous pat
ronage that the Postmaster General is
ablo to wiold Foster would bo a form
idable power against tho Grant Conk
ling faction. Every cfTort is being
made by the Grant men to provenl his
obtaining this power.
Go Ahead. Tho Representative
who has Introduced a bill in the Leg

drunkennoss has corroct ideas ol re
formatory legislation. For years tho
efforts ot tcmpcraneo agitators have
boen based on the thoory that the

drowned in it rather than tho fool him
self. It will he well enough to try tho
neliau ornamentation. In Juno lust

A meeting was to have been hold last
night in tho church by tbo Committee
on Pastoral Relations to appoint suc
cessors. Horticultural Hull has reached tho
culniifiution of a series of misfortunes.
It was built in 1867 by the Peni'syl-
vanui Horticultural society ul a cost
of $125,000, but its ucoustic properties
wore so ilelicient thai iu 18i thuy ro
modelled it at an additional cost of
t.w.uuii ny elevating tho tloor to a
height of sixteen feet, thus making
two stories wbero ketoro thoro had
been but ono. As a financial venture
it was a failure, anil was sold last sum
mer at Sheriff's sale. Tho society's
President, Mr. Schull'er, cume to the
front, and lor 875,000, in addition to
the payment of taxes, took possession
of tho building. Ho bought tho prop,
erty moro as a shelter lor tho Horti
cultural Society than as an investment.
The society has continued to hold its
Fuirs regularly without cost, and the
building has been protty much under
tho same mniiuL'cmcnt. Tho insurance
on tho Church will roach $10,000 and
on the Hull .'10,000.
OUR SENATORIAL COX TEST.
The Senulorial contest at llarrishurg
is attracting wide) attention, and the
leading newspapers east and west aro
discussing the situation with a good
deal of interest. Tho Chit-ago Inter-
Cccnn makes the contest tho subject of
a leaning cililoriul ou bulling, and
makes thu point Unit such action, us
against a bad party, may bo well but,
as against a good one, wicked and un
patriotic. "Wo are not sure," it says,
"that tho time has not nearly or quite
arrived when bolters should he (Ideat
ed at whatever cost." This is its do
scrintion of the typical bolter:
