PROF. SAMUEL I). GROSS, the emi

week. Prof. Gross has been for many
years connected with the Jefferson
Medical College of that city, and ex
tensively known to the medical pro

dead boJy of the distinguished pro
f feasor was taken to Le Moync cr-iua

THE railroads in order to scalp
the scalpers, have bit upon a plan of
special rates to conventions and other
bodies during the coming season which
will, probably, in a great measure
block their busineas in its most profit
able season. The plan is the requir
ing of full fare from delegations going
to the conventions, ami one-quarter
fare on their return, on the prcaenta
tion of attostcd certificate at the Com
panies' offices.

LAST week excitement ran high in
financial circles in New York, by the
failure of the Marine National Rank.
This created a distrust that soon
brought its fruits, and the firtn of
A Ward, bankers, were forced
to suspend, and have since assigned.
Gen. Grant is the head of the firm,
and is greatly worried over the affair,
r" for which he is probably not person
ally responsible, his partner being the
jSt business manager. The shortage of
accounts, it is said, will reach
. $<1,000,000.

ocrats, echo.* iu a full incisure the
sentiments of the great ma*.' of the
American people, ami i* one bright
spot in the desert of a [xr-onal ambi- ,
tiou that would ruin Democratic proi- i
p Tts of victory this fall. Carlisle,
Morrison and NVatterson, the griat
free trade triiiiuviiate, would place
the Dcni'K"ratic party on the defensive
and in a fabe position, on the eve of a
great national conflict That means
defeat. That they love the Democrat-
I ic party we doubt not; "Not that i loved
!Cn *ar less, but Rome more," is their
motto, as it was Brutus' defense after
having plunged the dagger into the
heart of his friend Csesar. Cie*ar, in
the present instance, is the Democratic
I party, Roa> is (.'arlisle, Morrison ami
Watterson. Mr. Randall character- 1
ieed the hill a* a confession on the
part of its authors of their inability
to grapple with an intricate question. :
Buch no doubt is the fact, but the in
competence of the so-called tariff re
formers should not be saddled on the
Democratic party.
Morrison flatly ami squarley refused
to allow amendments to be mado en
his bill, and then on the eve of his de
feat taunted Mr. Itandall and his fol
lowers with the challenge "if you
have the power to defeat this bill, you
have the power to amend it." Morri
son knew when he uttered these words
that it was impossible to amend the ,
bill at that time, as the Republicans ,
would have voted with the Morrison
people. In this he waa unfair, nay, '
with the knowledge of the facts be '
was dishonest, and resorted to ths 1
tricks of a ward politician. That '
there should be a "reform'' of existing '
tariff laws the most ultra protectionist 1
will admit, and on that point all agree, j

As the time near* for the uncl
ing of the National Convention,
the <|iu<tioii of combinations or puol
ing of issues among the army of can
didates who aspire to Republican
lead' rsliip, is 1.. ing di-cu- ed. U- fi r
ring to tin prts* :t acjiect of the bat

that a combination between lilainc

Tho balance of |ow.-r held by lt>e
minor candida'es is not likely to tw
thrown solidly in favor of either Arthur
or I'daine. It is jute certain that toe
former can get but hub if any < f that
s'-ri ngth utiles *. ind I, tie-final Strug

Int. at ev< ot nearly all • . the I Imunds-
Sherman and H.iwley x.i'f would be!
cast far Arthur. The talk "f the under

i renewe I and if it be true that an
agreement between the#, tan hi been

Itlaine will receive the vol' *of I.sgin

nomination that h.s opponent would
find it difficult to .lo'eat him. If the
more svnguini of Blaine's supporters
figure with arv degree of sccuranev
tb< rote rontrollel t.y Ixigsn will be
quite sufficient to give the nornir a'ion
to the ''Plumed Knight."
Both Arthur and Itlaine are shrewd
politicians. They understand moat
thoroughly tho art of manipulating
political convention*. t.rcek will met
tifeek at Chicago in the per-on* of lbee
w II match* d antagonists and there will
t>e a tug of war in the republican nation
al convention that will equal if not
surpass in stubtiornnesa and exciting
interest that of the week's battle be
teen the 3<HS and the field in ISSO. But
may not the shrewdness of th*e princi
I*l contestants suggest to them the
propriety of "pooling their iaaue" in
stead of permitting the field to utilize
the strength of the weaker for the I.one
fit of one of the minor Candida tee f
Arthur and Blame between them con
trol three fourths of the convention.
There has been no such bitterness in
their rivalry as to preclude a combina
tion which would l>e mutually advert
tagoua. True, it ia not likely that Treai
dent Aruhur would accept office under
Blaine, hut as he ia a natural horn
politician and two young to retire alto
gether from public life he might le
willing to become "the power Isehind
the throne greater than the throoe it
self," As for Blaine it ia not to be
doubted for a moment that if he find*
that bis play for the principal stakes is
to loae he would lie willing to repeat
with Arthur or any other promising
candidate the bargain he made with
Oerflold. Stranger things have happen
ed in polities than a combination be
tween Arthur and Rlaine.

latest jdaii suggested a mea-ure of

inter, -t the government in a real c',ate

i t'l-n hundred acres of land, including
the historic q*.t ujtoii which Washing
ton s army *a eticampcii at \ alley
Forge, le pure based and converted
into a national park.
The idea is a very pretty one, but
not nearly a- pretty a* the sum it
would cot the government Iw-fore the
spcculutora would realise the full
amount of profit that would be afford
ed by the picturesque and patriotic
job. Ry the time those who had it in
charge would get out all that was in
it. the ellonstone park swindle, as a
piece of intended rascality, would be
thrown entirely into the shade.
It is well to keep Valley Forge and
the deeds associated with it in remem
brance, hut it wonld not be too im
aginative to believe that if the revolu
tionary worthies who suffered the I
hardship* of that winter rantoanient !
could ace what a rascally lot of job
bers and machine politicians are im
aging the government they would
probably give vent to their feelings iu
profane expressions.
THE Philadelphia lieeord remarks:
"Secretary Folgcr, notwithstanding
the danger of reducing his gold re- j

cumhed to the pressure of evar-inrreaa- i

pockets of the people and issued an
other call for the redemption of itn
million dollar's worth of outstanding
bonds. It is uow certain that the tax
