MORE PARK PLANS.
The projects for parks continue to in
crease in number a good deal more rapidly
than the actual parks are likely to do. The
plans for parks on the Sonthside, as set
forth in our local columns, form the latest
sddition to the list.
Kb section of the city has greater need
for breathing spots than the densely-inhabited
manufacturing wards south of the
Jlonongahela. It would be difficult to find
space for parks in the contracted and
crowded plain between the hills and the
river. But the people of the SoUthside ap
preciate what The Dispatch has often
pointed ont, that the hilltops afford
fine opportunities lor magnificent views,
open spices and fresh air, and
can be made more accessible to the working
msses, by inclined planes and cable roads,
than the available sites in distant suburbs.
The hills of the Southside have for years
been the resort ot those seeking an escape
from brick walls and close atmosphere.
There is abundance of ground available for
parks which might be turned into most de
lightful breathing spots at comparatively
small expense. It is to be hoped that plans
like this, which promise parks for the
benefit of the class of our population that
most needs them, will receive early atten
tion. There are other sites of equally eligible
character on this side of the river, which
should also command consideration. But
it should be remembered that plans for
parks are of little value if the public does
not take measures to insure that something
shall be done to give the plans a tangible
DIFFERENT LABOR VLEWS.
An example of the difference of views be
tween the labor organizations of different
countries, is shown by the fact that not
withstanding recent successes ot organized
labor in England, the Trades Union Con
gress at Dundee last week voted down the
eight-hour law by a considerable majority.
Thus the English trade organizations put
themselves on record against the idea to
which both the Federation of Labor and the
3v. ofL. in this country are fully com
mitted. The cirenmstances of course are
decidedly different. The English work
man knows that if he should cut down the
amount of his work it would amount to
turning over just so much work to his Ger
man or French competitor. The American
workman feels that he is to a certain extent
guarded against the latter factor by the
barrier of a protective tariff. Still that does
not make the contrast between their views
TOO ETJCH GOVERNMENT.
The beauties of the socialistic idea of
having the railroads conducted by the
Government are being exquisitely exhi
bited in Germany just now A year ago is
an experiment the Russian Minister of
Railroads, put on a few fast trains between
the principal cities. They were greatly ap
preciated and the public cried for more.
But in Germany the public proposes and
Prince Bismarck or one of his puppets dis
poses. In this case the Minister of Bail
roads smiled sweetly and took off even the
experimental fast trains. The last state of
the traveling public in Germany is there
fore worse than the first. They have no
(Express traits and cry as much as they
please they are not likely to get them.
The only reason alleged to support this
arbitrary policy of the Government of
Germany is that the rails used on the rail
roads there are not heavy enough to stand
the strain of express trains. This is a good
reason. But here the remedy would be
plain and speedy of advancement. Private
enterprise would come to the public's relief
with a railroad properly equipped. If the
existing railroads refused to accede to a
general popular demand other railroads
would be built whose managers would be
more complaisant. The fact is no great
Jailroad corporation in this country
can afford to contemptuously decline to
Notice any just and reasonable request its
patrons may make. But with the Govern
ment in control of the railroads who can
say that arbitrary and undemocratic
methods might not come into use. The

would-be monopolists and tyrants is wonder
Three New England towns have recently
(celebrated their two hundred and fiftieth
anniversary. In the European point of view
a town only 2P0 years old does not appear
particularly antique; but when we come to
consider the lapse of time in the light of the
achievements secured during that period,
the conviction is impressed, especially upon
the American mind, that the towns of Mil
ford, Conn., and EudDury and "Wayland,
JIasa., have seen a wonderful amount of
progress in liberty and material civilization
since thev were tettled by the Puritans.
Then, too, in "comparison with American
towns, the New England villages which
have recently held their celebrations are un
doubtedly antique. Pittsburg is considered
a rather old city by some people; but when
we reflect that she must wait for 15 years
before she can celebrate her hundredth year
bsl borough, she assumes the character of a
young and vigorous giant in comparison with
these 250-year-old villages of Puritan origin.
THE DEMOCEACY AND TH TBTJSTS.
The declaration of our friends, the Demo
crats, at their convention at Harrisburg last
week, that they "regard trust in whatever
form organized as the result of the existinr?
monopoly tariff." and call for "the repeal J
of such tariff taxes as enable them to con
trol domestic productions by unlawful com
binations" is a rather interesting and
peculiar deliverance under the circum
stances. "We do not refer to the collision ot the
declaration with such gigantic facts as the
Standard Oil Trust, the Anthracite Coal
combination and the Cotton Seed Oil Trust,
all of which leading examples are entirely
independent of tariff protection. These
were prominent facts long before the Penn
sjlvania Democrats drew up their plat
form. If their previous existence could
not have induced the Pennsylvania Dem
ocracy to keep its declarations somewh.it
more in accordance with the facts, any
further comments that we can add would
have little effect upon the Bourbon 'minds.
It' is also the fact, with regard to the
tariff duty, that most prominently main
tains a trust, namely the sugar duties, that
the leading Democratic organ of the State
of Pennsylvania recently informed the
voters of a Louisiana district that they must
support the Democratic candidate in order
to assure themselves of the maintenance of
the sugar duties. The discrepancy between
the Democratic position in Louisiana and
the Democratic position in Pennsylvania
would not be anything remarkable, but
when the leading Pennsylvania Democratic
paper takes the position that the Democratic
party is going to maintain the sugar duties,
and then the Democratic Convention turns
around and makes a demand for the repeal
of those duties, the public is harrowed by a
distressing doubt as to which represents the
genuine article of Democracy.
Is it the State Democratic organ or the
State Democratio platform, which is thus
pitching Democratic principles overboard
in order to catch votes?
There is a unique touch of patriotism in
the announcement that the pugilistic cham
pion of the world has determined to follow
in the footsteps of John Morrissey and de
vote himself to the public service. He an
nounces himself through the columns of the
New York Evening Sun as a Democratic
candidate for Congress. Mr. Sullivan
thinks that he is possessed of just the quali
ties that are needed in Congress, and inti
mates that not the least of his recommenda
tions is that if his logs are not promptly
rolled he can do up the obstructionists to
the Queen's taste.
The era of pugilistic statesmanship ex
emplified by the champion of a generation
ago was not particularly brilliant; but per
haps Mr. Sullivan will be able to introduce
some new and striking features.
The suspension of the rules while
Mr. Sullivan proceeds to knock
out a factious opposition in one round would
be a stunning success; and after he had got
a bill through the House, to prohibit the
importation of the pauper prize fighters of
other lands, the way he could go over and
persuade the dignified Senators to pass his
measure would estaDlish nn executive ses
sion of a new and lively variety. The most
prominent objection to Mr. Sullivan's am
bition is the effect of his legislative career
in wearing out the Sergeants-at-arms and
the doubt whether the union of pugilism
and politics would be an elevation of poli
tics or an advertisement for the short
haired. But there is another obstacle in the field
of practical politics, which Mr. Sullivan
seems in danger of overlooking. That is
the fact that his engagements in the Mis
sissippi Penitentiary are likely to interfere
with the prosecution of his Congressional
canvass next year.
The most important public feature of the
last piece of New York scandal is the low
price of babies in that market, and the
obvious necessity according to prevailing
commercial principles of getting up a Baby
Trust to advance prices.
An Indiana politician is stated to have
urged upon the President, in support of his
claim that the Democratic incumbent of a
desirable postoffice should be turned out,
that the Bepublicans songht votes in the
last canvass on thecclaim that a Democrat
should be turned out of the Presidency.
The President is stated to have replied that
Mr. Cleveland was permitted to serve out
his term, and he thought that privilege
would have to be granted the Democratic
postmaster. This was quite pertinent; but
both the President and his interlocutor ap
pear to have forgotten the fact that the Be
publicans sought votes on a pledge of the
"further extension" of the reiorra of the
civil service. It seems to be very difficult
for the Bepublicans to remember that im
portant little point just now.
"West Viegista Democrats who are en
gaged in counting out the Bepublican Gov
ernor on technicalities are fully in accoid

The report is heard that the private par
lors of a San Francisco "lady" in the
Palace H6tel recently witnessed a prize
fight for a purse in the presence of the
hostess and a number of the members of
"the first families." This should settle all
questions as to the exclusion of the Chinese
from Ssn Francisco. The barriers must be
rigidly maintained out of respect to the
civilization ot the Chinese.

SOLDIEfvS SLAY A WHALE.
A Vltolo Battery Attacks nnd Vanquishes a
Narbagaisett Pier, September!?. A case
of whaling extraordinary occurred in Narra
gansett Bay. off Fort Adams, jesterday. The
scene was a ludicrous one, and for a time it
seemed as though the whale, a 20-foot sulphur
bottom, would get the best of a company of
SO Soldiers who were after it, and escape. The
whale spouted off the fort about 2 o'clock in
the afternoon, and shot in close under the forti
fication. The soldiers sighted it, and several
shots were quickly fired at the cetacean, pro
ducing no effect whatever.
Then ensued an exciting scene. The officers
and men of the Entire battery gathered and
made a united attack upon the whale, using
sabers, guns, pitols, carbines and in fact,
ever) thing hut the field pieces and the machine
guns were brought to bear. The charce was
made in boats. In the turmoil that followed
the while seemed stampeded, and darted about
airalecsly. A few of the shots made some im
pression, and then the soldiers in their excite
ment jumped on the whale's back, ohlj to be
thrownjards anayin the water by the crea
ture s tail A rope was finally tied around the
whale and a niece of gaspipe stuck in its blow-

and was making for the sea, when the fort
launch was lucked into it by Captain Lcc, and
it was cut in several places by the propeller.
The launch then chassd the whale down the
cove opposite the stattes, where It was finally
run ashore and killed.
This is the first w hale that has been captured
from Newport shore since tne days when
whaling wat made a business there. Ihe whale

THE STATE'S FEINTING BILL.

tSPFCIAL TELEGRAM TO MIK WSPATCIt.l
HakrisbdrU, September 8. The last an
nual report of W. Hajes Gner, late Superin
tendent of Public Printing and Binding, just
issued, shows the cost of printine, binding and
piper for the past year to have been as follows:
Printing reports, documents, etc , with litho

survey repoit, lithographic work and map

S7C 621 M; total, J332,6o9 38.
The report for the j car, including the print
ing expenses of the Legislature of loS7, showed
the amount expended tor printing, binding and
paper to have been S213.09J 05. The Increased
cost the past year, as compared with the pre
vious legislative year, is largely due to the
extra expense involved in printing millions of
blanks under revenue legislation, which for
portions of the years 188S and 18S9 amounted to
over f44,000. and to the greatly Increased woi '.c
done in getting out geological survey reports,
which according to the report of two j ears ago
cost 19,637 00, while kvt year thev entailed an
expense to the State of over 02,000. The ex
pense of nearly 59,900 for printing the book en
titled the "Birds of Pennsjlvania" does not
include the cost of the edition of 19,000 bopies

CHILDREN AND FLOWERS.
Odd Reflections From Juvenile Astronomers
Plenty of New Moons Shadows That
Made n Pickaninny Die Enough Golden
itod hs a Harvest Blossom.
The prattle of a child has frequently set
brains of older growth In motion sometimes
in the direction of pathos, and again in lines of
humorous vein. Watching every word and
motion of their most intimate elders as they
do, chitdren hear arid see about all there is
going; but how differently from adult observers
they sometimes sea thingsl
While out walking with bet papa tho other
night, a little tot of three short summers, who
hash't progressed very far in her astronomical
studies, persisted in the oral pursuit thereof,
much to the amusement of passers-by who
caught portions of the prattle.
"Look, papal" said tho child, "bow many
moons there are to-night. Most as many as
the stars; aron't there, papa?"
"Only one," replied the Benlor, abstractedly,
pointing to Luna's crescent face.
"But, papa, look down Fifth avenue, toward
the Court House, and up Forbes street,
toward Oakland; one, two, free, seven, five
moons, all in a row an' all bright, dess like
sister Fannie's earrings, when 'oo said she's
'talkin' moons'ine,''uzzer night!"
The city's new system ot electric lighting had
furnished, ready-made, too many moons for as
tronomers so very young.
Apropos of moonshine and the kindred lights
that shine and Sputter and shimmer by night,
bringing new ideas to childhood not only, but
to many others of us,is the story of alittle darkey
girl's chatter, while out with her mother for a
stroll up Wylie avenue one- night last week.
Only a few days ago) while trying to surmount
some of the obstacles that confronted her in
many maternal assurances that the child must
wait for thus and so "until she got big enough,"
the little one interrogated:
"Mammy, am dere any ladder high 'nuff tl
reach de moont"
"No, child; what for d'ye ask sech fullish
questions. Better shet yer yawp, 'thout ye kin
talk some sense!"
"Then, mammy, how de man in de moon git
wAyupdarwif his green cheese? Am he so
big as dat?"
Only another phase of juvenile astronomy,
you see; but an actual one, and wholly depend
ent upon the nonsensical remarks of older folk,
The same little pickaninny, having been told
on another occasion that it "wouldn't be safe
for her to wash dishes until She got big," re
membered the remark and pondered on it.
"Mammy," Said she on the evening in ques
tion, just as the twain had walked into the full
glare of the same electric lighting system,
"mammy, am dat my shadder over yon.
"Yes, yes, child; whose shadder could It be
"'Ease, mammy, dat shadder's big 'nuff fer
to wash dishes now, ain't it 'thout breakin'
The electric light had, to the pickaninny's
mind, transformed her into a full-fledged do
mestic, though 4 years old, and she wound up
With the query:
"Mammy, 'fl keeps ona-growin' and a growin'
like de shadders, I se boun' to tech do sky, an
be as big as de stars befo' Chrismus, ain't I,
"Shet yer vawp, now, child! D'ye hear?"
was all the answer the dusky little Student of
the shadows was vouchsafed.
It's a broad break from such juvenile od
dities to a reflection or two on one of autumn's
own peculiar flowers; but here goes: When,
after the vacation season, many of us sat in one
of our most prominent Pittsburg churches yes
terday and listened to a far-reaching yet home

nn the barren fig tree which might have borne
fruit to feed the Son of God; on the emptiness
and hypocrisy of that Christianity which bears
only leaves, and is therefore fit only to grow

thoughts seemed all the more imnressive for

Concord, N. H., September 8. Tho Mount
Washington Railroad Company, vfhoso famous
incline road is a veritable gold mine, is puhed
for room, and is seeking better terminal fa
cilities on the summit. The owner? of the
mountain havo demanded such a lirge sum in
compensation that the matter is now being
heard by the State Railroad Commissioners
and the fact has been brought out that the
parties claiming ownership of the mountain
obtained from the State, under Governor
Harnman's administration, for 5500, a quit
claim deed of all the Btate's rights on tho
entire mountain, and this of course, gave an
absolute control of the property. When the
railway was constructed the corporation
bought the right of way for the roadway from
the base to tho Summit for $99.
The Railroad now wants 5 aires on the
summit condemned for its use, claiming that
the railroad is now a pnblic necessity and a
post road. 1 hey will probably get what they
ask, although the people interested in the
hotels, strange to siy, strenuously object.

down to ?S0O out this will require an economy
bordering on niggardliness. The first-class
college of td-day has its Societies and clubs of
different kinds which make heavy demands,

"My expenses for my oldest son who grad

by teaching in vacations and staying away a
winter or two to'get a little ahead.
Times Have Chnnjrcd.
"At old Jefferson College, between 1810 and
1S60, the majority ot the undents spent less
than 5200 a year. A few Southerners, for whose
education an occasional darky was sold, passed
these figures and I remember some Instances
where students, who expended 5500 in a year,
were regarded by their felldns as guilty of

disposed of bv a student was by frequent pleas

could name a number of men who are now

entire education did not cost as, much as the
average how paid annually for the education 61
a student at Harvard, Yale and Princetoh."
The American drift of late years has been to
ward putting educational advantages beyond
tne reacn oi poor men's sons, ana making our
great colleges aristocratic centers. The boy at
Canonsburg 40 years ago, whp taught school a
winter or two in order to relieve his father of
the burden of his education, was none the less
esteemed by his fellow students because of bis

The human body, like all other bodies, must
maintain its equilibrium, and when the center
of gravity of the trunk is thrown back, some
other parts must come forward to preserve
the balance. The tenter of gravity should be
directly over a line passing through the middle
of each foot, and to keep it at that point, the
proper position of the body in standing should
be about as follows: Heels together on the
same line, making an ahele of about sixty de
grees, the legs straight without con
straint, the body thrown a little for
ward on the hips, stomach in
chest out, shoulders square and well back)
arms hanging naturally, with elbows near the
body and palms of the hands a little to the
front, the head well back and chin drawn id
toward the neck.
