LANCASTER DAILY INTELLIGENCER MONDAY, NOVEMBER 8 1880.
MONDAY EVENING, NOV. 8, 1880.
The felly of parties and men has sel
dom been se fairly exposed as in the elec
tion in Tennessee. The Democratic con
vention adopted a resolution in favor of
the payment of the state debt en the best
terras that could be obtained from the
bondholders, which, it was thought,
would be about fifty per cent. A num
ber of delegates who did net want te let
the bondholders have anything te say as
te the amount which should be paid
them by the state, if anything, and who
moreover wanted any act passed by the
Legislature in regard te the matter te be
first ratified by the people at an election
te be held,before it should go into effect,
seceded from the convention and nom
inated a separate candidate for governor.
The Republicans, who have been for sev
eral years watt-hing the playing of the
Democratic mice with this question and
adroitly aggravating them te a fight
whenever they found opportunity, placed
themselves en a "strong debt paying plat
form and declared for the payment of
the full principal and interest.
The Democrats have been going at
each oilier, hammer and longs, for the
last three months : the one side declar
ing thai the ether were repudiatienists
and the latter retorting that the regular
Democracy were bound in the chains of
the railroads which really owed the debt
and ought te pay it. The Republican
common enemy was mostly lest sight of
in this Kilkenny light : and that of itself
would have made the battle ridiculous
te the unprejudiced observer. But
the peculiar absurdity of it is found in
the fact that the repudiation Democrats,
who were going for the scalp of the reg
ular Democratic candidate because he
wanted le pay tee big a percentage of
the debt and was net willing te submit
the mailer again le the people, have de
liberately permitted the Republican
governor te be elected, who is pledg
ed te the payment of the whole
debt and who is net only opposed te ask
ing the people anything about it but is
ready le give the bondholders any guar
antee they want that the state will pay
them their interest. This has been done
deliberately, because it has been clear
that either the Republican or the regular
Democratic candidate would be elected.
The choice manifestly laid between
these two; but the discontented Deme
crats had their anger up and their war
paint oil and were determined en a light
ever a bone that they distinctly saw the
third deg carrying off from under their
nose?. There certainly never was a
mere conspicuous instance of political
felly. While the Tennessee Democrats
of all kinds are wiping their bloody chops
the Republicans are laughing : and with
them laugh the bondholders, who find
themselves se much the gainers by the
Xet unlike this Tennessee picture is
that presented in Virginia, where that

with which te get. possession of the flesh flesh
pets of the state. Ills first move was te
get himself elected le the United States
Senate by a coalition with the Republi
cans. This was net much of a feat ; but
it looked like one and led mankind gen
erally, and Alahone in particular, te
think that he was a very great man. lie
accordingly undertook te run the Dem
ocratic electors of his ewu nomination
in Virginia, notwithstanding the Demo
cratic party had a set already nomi
nate!, lie declared that he was the state
and that his electors would be chosen
against both the Democratic and Repub
lican set. The world, which is apt te
take a man at his own rating if he
makes a great noise, was really inclined
te think that Mahout- could de the wen
derful tricks en his-pregramme. The
Democratic national committee was net
se stupid, however, and put an ex
tinguisher en him by recogniz
ing the oilier electors. Mahone
conies out of the contest with hardly a
grease spot te show where he was. The
creditors of the stale are joyful, and the
regular Democracy laugh with them.
The Republicans were net se strong as
i.-i Tennessee nor was the repudiation el
ement as vigorous. The parly lest little

new te remind it of Mahout except the
discredit of having liim in the Senate ;

The New Yerk Sun says "Jehn Kelly
did it." The Sun is rash. Jehn Kelly
might retort "The, Sim did il," and with
as geed reason ; for the Sun certainly, in
that time of its weakness after the In
diana election, when it intimated that
General Hancock's quality chiefly lay in
his physical weight, did hiscause greater
injury than was offset by the benefit of
its advocacy during the campaign. It
was the declaration of a friend and car
ried weight accordingly. Doubtless it
was net said deliberately : but that did
net help the hurt.
It is notable hew the Democratic ad
vocates of Hancock are charged with sel
fishly or stupidly harming their cause in
this canvass: and often justly. The Xew
Yerk World' has been publishing for
weeks past these hasty words of the Sim
about Hancock, for the purpose of in
juring that journal and depriving it of
Damecralic support; although it well
knew that it was doing the cause no
geed. Its republication was worse
than the Sun's offence and was malig
nantly stupid. The World thinks Til
den did it. It has the same reason te
charge the less of New Yerk te him as
fie Nmihasleput it oil Kelly, and that
is the fact that Democratic districts
especially loyal te him did net de their
duty. Rut it is clear enough te every
Democrat who has no spitefulness te
gratify against either Kelly or Tilden
that it was neither who lest us Xew
Yerk, for the interests of both were
hurt by it. Republican money, bought
humbler Democratic instruments. The
fault of the leaders was the jealousy that
kept them from unity of council and
action, and which is new indecently ex
posed in the recrimination of thesceldirg
organs, which would be much better em
ployed in turning their attention te the
discovery of the methods of Arthur and
company -that swelled the Republican
count se efficiently. The gross fraud in

Te-xight the famous and notorious

Sara is a great actress. Her Art is te be

Gladstone gave her social recognition, all
of which is cited only as evidence
of the dissolute morals of the Aricterian
age by these who regard the Bernhardt

Snuieus trouble looms up ahead for
England ever the condition of affairs in
Ireland. All reports from the scene of
disturbance agree that the .social disorder
afflicting that unhappy island grows wider
and mere formidable every day. There
arc very few landlords or agents that will
new venture te show themselves in public
unaccompanied by a strong force te guard
them, and the stories arc revived about the
intention of the Orangemen of Ulster te
march down upon the Seuth and West, de
claring that civil war cannot be worse than
the social anarchy new prevailing. Threats
arc made by the rank and file en the Land
League that a bloody revenge will be
taken for every conviction of an agitator 1
that may be obtained that for each leader
found guilty a landlord shall be shot within
I the twenty-four hours.
One of the most important duties the
new president will have te perform will
be the appointment of four associate jus
tices of the supreme court of the United
States. Justice Clifferd, notwithstanding
the natural sensitiveness of his friends en
the subject, is said te be mentally and
physically incapable of ever taking his
seat upon the woolsack again. He is
seventy-seven years old, and his health is
se precarious that he can hardly be ex
pected te long survive. Justice Hunt's
health is also threatening. He has net
been upon the bench for two years and
will probably never be able te resume his
duties. He is seventy years old. Justice
Swaync, although in geed health, is
seventy-six years old, and it is understood
he will retire within a year. Justice
Streng is also hi geed health, but he is
seventy -two years old and it is understood
that he, tee, will retire after the fourth
of March and take advantage of the full
pension allowed by law. Thus the next
president may have the appointment of
four new judges, a responsibility he ought
net te regard lightly. Should only Re
publicans be selected the court will then
stand eight Republicans te one Democrat

A .Mether Kitten by lier Convulsed en and
Stricken with tne Same Disease.
Last Monday a little son of James Moly Mely
neaux, of Providence, was taken down
with s.yinptens of hydrophobia. On Tues
day the disease was clearly defined. The
child is 1) years old, and had been bitten,
as nearly as his parents could learn, some
three weeks before by a cur en the strecl.
All of the mere vielcntsymy tens of hydro
phobia set in. His convulsions produced
the shocking noise that is sometimes liken
ed te the snapping of a deg, and there was
the attendant foaming at the mouth.
While his father and mother were tending
him he bit them both, and it being impos
sible te care for him at home lie was sent
te the Rhede Island hospital.
Thusday evening Mrs. Melyncaux, the
mother, without the slightest premonition
excepting a feeling of lassitude, was sud
denly convulsed. She was sittinsr at the
time with some friends at her residence en
Ship street. The spasm became mere vio
lent ; frothing at the mouth and ether
symtems that had been noticed in the boy
were observed. It was impossible for the
friends te control her. They say she
snapped at them whenever they ap
proached, and that the action caused them
te remember that she had been bitten by
the little boy, Harry. Mr. Melyncaux was
away, and the police were therefore neti
fied. An officer cautiously entered the
room and approached the bed en which
Mrs. Melyncaux was lying. She seemed
te have geno there in a moment of tem
porary relief, but the moment she
saw the officer she sprang at him.
The officer for a few minutes had a
terrible struggle. He could have mas
tcred the woman easily, but he feared that
in the struggle that would be necessary
she might bite him. He seized the bed
clothes and wound them in a great bunch
around his arms, and thus protected him
self. He also shouted for help, and
shortly three officers arrived, Mrs. Moly Mely
ncaux's house being but a short distance
from the station. The officer, then, using
the bedclothes te protect himself, forced
Mrs. Melyncaux as gently as possible
back te the bed and threw the blankets
quickly ever her face. In a second
the ether officers, with the police surgeon,
who had arrived with an ambulance,
had secured Mrs. Molyneaux, and she
was taken te the hospital. Sergeant Runk
in, of the police says he never paw a mere
terrible sight than was this woman's con
ditien when they were" binding her. He
describes her utterances as almost perfect
imitations of the growling of a deg, and
says she would set her teeth and snap as
dogs de. The most painfully part of it
all was that Mrs. Molyneaux seemed fully

Seme years age, when there was what

tendant was never the worse for the bite.

It will be admitted that a majority of
zu,w en a total vote et 1,200,000 is
much mere likely te be obtained through
fraud and intimidation than a majority If
8,000 in a total vote of 100,000. Whether
the majority in Xew Yerk lias been ob
tained by such means is a question of 'fact,
en which Congress will have te pass, and
en which a great amount of evidence can
be obtained before Congress will be called
upon te pass upon it. In the meantime it
is proper that the press should devote
itself te reassuring the business commu
nity, since it is by no means certain that
the calamity of Garfield's election, which
has se much depressed the stock market,
has actually come upen the country, and
since the precedent of 1870 makes it cer
tain that the country will peaceably and
loyally 'acquiesce in the decision of Con
gress whatever that decision may be.

The invitations for the wedding of Miss

of two of Pennsylvania's governors, are is

ceremony is fixed for half-past (5 p. m., en
Thursday, Xevember 11, at St. Jehn's P.
E. church. The groom elect is Lieutenant
Rebert ICennen Evans, of the Twelfth In
fantry, who is a native of Mississippi and
a graduate of West Point. He is ordered
te Arizona and will start for his pest the
evening of the wedding, which causes the
ceremony te take place at se early an hour
and limits the reception, which is te be
at Mr. and Mrs. Hornsby's residence, te
the time between 7 and 10 p. m. The
one objection the bride's loving mother
has te the choice of a husband her only
child has made is the separation it in
velves between her and her daughter, i he
matrimonial engagement was ratified
while Miss Shunk was traveling in Europe
last summer with her grandparents, Judge
and Mrs. Black. Mr. Evans, who had be
gun his suit, in Washington, meeting her
in Europe, secured her premise of mar
riage and the consent of her grandparents.
He first was attracted te this handsome
and intellectual young girl by a piece
el" poetry she wrote which was published
anonymously in the Washington Capital,
and of which en inquiry he found Miss
Shunk te be the author. She inherits
from both parents a marked talent for
writing, but is se modest that she has
never suffered air' of her writings te be
published -with her name attached. She
will have only two bridesmaids, the
daughter of Xcely Thompson, of Xew

Fayette county, where he is a member of
the bar and a part owner of the Republican
