the Independents, that organization does
not intend to "urge nor suggest any action,

Several Congressmen have come to grief
in their district nominating conventions in

The milk inspectors of New ' York city

ndependents answer that thy do not

this may be true, but the tindencv is
to Ahe contrary. , We see that there is
already a manifest disposition to place
independent candidates in ri the field ,in
sevreal districts, both for the legisla
ture, and congress.- 'rhe'r, is na ques
tion, if the Republicans of the State
will stand firtilly by the jregular State
ticket and by - 'l;the 'legislative and con.
gressional tickets, that they ' - can main
tain a majority—in the legislature and
aid in maintaining a majority -in .the

ficing all tha is dear to ,pepuhlicans
for the sake f punishing : individuals in

bide our tintfor the correction of ex
' tsting abuse: by party I leaders. The
next:legislature does nut elget a •United
States Senator, but the - legislature to
be elected two years hence will be
charged with the duty: electing a
successor to J. D. Cameron: It will
then be time to draw the lines on that
question, and we will be found where
we ihave always Veen on that issue:
Many Republicans who sympathize
to some. xtent with the' primary ob- ,
jects of the kdependents have- said to
us:. "Now is your time, you'can make
your influence felt on the side of the
Independents with such power as will
strike terror to the party bosses." To
such appeals we have but one ans4er,l
i. e. our Republicanism is a higher cpn
sideration with us than nay grievance
growing out of the action of individuals
in the party. Our influence shall be
exerted within the party for the cor
rection of abuses, but we are unwilling
to obstruct the accomplishment of their
correction by going with the Indepen
dents and thereby aiding the election
of the Democratic ticket. We ask' all
our Republican friends to consider the
subject in this aspect, and advise them
to act as duty impeLs us t 8 act, and
- contribute their best efforts for the suc
cess of the regular Republican ticket
this fall. We can fully appreciate the
feelings of many Republicans who have
always stoSod true to`the partY, but be
cause of their outspoken opposition to
the methods of party bosses, have
sufferred ostracism and felt 'the iron'
heel of bo t ss rule upon their necks as
soon as the -victory to which they ear
nestly contributed was won. The ten
dency of events within the party, 'prior
to the going out of , the, independents, ,
pointed most unmistakablY to the over
throw of this power by regular meth
ods within the party, but by going out
they obstruct rather than aid the ac
complishment of swell a purpose, tied
leave their friends : who would have
been their allies within the party poter
less to assert theiriinfluence , success
fully for the achieiernent of a ' ,result
thousands of the truest Republicans - in
the State most heartily desire. For
ourself, we can better afford to endure
the kicks and curses and venomous
assaults of the small lieutenants and
hired henchmen of party dices,
than desert the prir.ciples which have
always been dear to us, ; and such a
course we trust will be adopted by all
Republicans who have 'felt aggrieved
with the action of party leaders.
ITS RELATION TO CIVILIZATION AND NATIONAL
One of the most interesting features found
in the study of history,• is the relation which
agriculture sustains to civilization and mate
rial prosperity. Although nearly every one
has the idea that agriculture is a 'source of
wealth, few realize the extent of its influ
Going back to the dawn of historical
times, we -find that the oldest _ civilized
countries were found in the fertile river
valleys. Wits this merely accidental, or
was there -11, .cause for it ?
.Why did riot
early civilization make its home in some
wild and mountainous distri4, instead of
the alluvial valleys of the File and the
,The answer is that , these val.
Tryg wero lighly favorable' to agricultural
pursuits, while the mountainous districts
were profitable only for the support of
flocks, and for the game which was found
there. Consequently the inhabitants of the
latter place led roving lives, moving from
place to place in search of fresh : pasturage,
or for more
.plentiful game. Constantly
changing their place of rfsidence made it
inconvenient to accumuhite many effects,
and impossible to establish any form of
Not so with the' agriculturists. The care
of their crops necessarily made their hemes
permanent. It was to their • advan to
'gather as much about them as fioSsible. The
property which they accumulated, and the
relations which they sustained to their
neighbors required acme 'laws for iheir
mutual protection; when by the accu*ula•
Akin of this property they had provido for
the necessities of life, they had title to
devote to : something more than a mere
struggle for existence. From these liegin- .
nings we Can easily see how a form of gov
ernment should have been adopted, and how
the mind should have ventured out in search
of knowledge, until by gradual accretions,
as the nature of circumstances demanded,
a high degree of civilization was reach4d.
But; haviUg seen that civilization was
brought about by permanent homes, and
that these fixed placei of residence were
necessitated by agricultural pursuits, let us
see what effect agriculture has ;Ton a nation
after it is civilized.
Many examples might be given, one of
the most striking being that of Rome. In
the 'early days of the republic, the only em
ployment thought fit for a gentleman was
that of agriculture, and this eniployment
was carried to a high 490 of perfection.
'Under the salutary influerices of this feeling,
Rome grew rich and. povOrful. Thn it was
that her sons earned for themselves the
title of heroes. ' ;
.In the great struggle with Carthage, tome
received the seed iwhosti germination caused
her dissolution. , True, HannibaKwas driven
•hack frorn the very gates of the city, and
his power foreVer destroyed, but ho had
divided Rome against herself. During his
fifteen years' stay in Italy, the farmers
sought refuge in the cities from the ravages
of war. When the long struggle was over,
they had lost their I§ve for country life, and
had conceived instead' a strong preference
1 for the r , excitement of the cit Y.. From that
time agricultural pursuits were' neglected,
The cities were thronged. Old and simple
habitS.were forgotten. Idleness and luxury
begot corruption, and Romo was on the
downward road which finally led to her

But again'we find that the agricultural
Istrictg were the cradle of :civilization. The
nedictine monks united labor with relig
ion, and this' particularly true of agricultu-•
rai l labor. St. Benedict, the founder of the
institution, knew full well the salutary
effects of tilling the soil. He a c cordingly
wrote to the different monasteries upon this
subject.. He advised - them "not to feel
, uneasy if at any time the cares of the har-
rote he will

The church took up ,
the work which had
thus been commenced, and together they
are recognized as the bridge which coune4xl
ancient and modern civilization.
But. we are not obliged to go back to an
cient 'history or oven to Medieval times to
show that agricultii4i' is really the founda
tion of national prosperity., During the past
few years, the experience qf. own people
has fully corroborated, this. }'The civil wir
excited the energies of thel people to the
highest point. When the struggle was.over,
it was impossible for this feeling at once to
subside. Life upon the farm became ttxr
slow for multitudes, and they sought more
exciting pursuits in the cities: Our people
were living too fast, and a financial crash
was the result. Employment in - the cities
became scarce, and thousands were forced'
into the country to obtain a livelihood by till
ing the soil. Our agricultural products were
greatly, increased; and prospOity once more
dawned upon the country. It cameelowly,
but surely, steadily increasing with the en
larging harvests. • 1 .
We can judge the future only,by the past.
If during all the history of man, agriculture
has been the foundation of civilization and
progress, it is at ;least a fair inference to
suppose that it will be th 4 same in the
future. In view of this it might be well if
our legislators could forget railroad ques
tions and Chinese immigration long enough
to thoroughly consider means for increasing
and improving the products of the soil. -Our
educators might properly omit much that . is
esthetic, and devote more time to the appli
cation of science to the work of the fernier.
In &ling this they 'Would not , only benefit
the whole country, but they would demon
strate to all that no one has greater need of
a thorough education than the farmer.
w. ti.. d.
Wiser in their generation than the - chil
dren of light, as the Temperance folks evi
dently consider themselves,' says the North
American; the members of the Western
Distillers' Association.have i d passed resolu
tions looking to the enforcement 'of Sab
bath laws, a high rate of liquor license and
the ignorance of : politi4l associations.
The first and last of these may be taken as
sincere, perhaps, With a .grain of salt, but
there is true grit in the middle Clause. A
license tax'which would ensure rdspecta
bilk), umong tavein-kediers, and block
out many vulgar dens, would be - a boon
worth having., By the waYl, the . Associa- .
tion omitted one importani point, which
; we cheerfully submit gratuitously, viz: a
provision for the inspectir \ of liquors, .of
all kinds, and a certificabc . of their purity,
as a compliment to the bee se system. In
a great majority of cases is the quality
and and not the quantitypf iquor consumed
that e ff ects the health, la d consequently
the morality, of a commu ly. The Dis

profits too much, should pa..s a suyplemem
It appears to be a very plain proposition
that if Congress is to dispasegot the business
which comes beforelt, somr. more expedi
tious method of transacting . it' must be
tulopted. During the latel' session 10,076
bills and Joint resolutions ere introduced,
and by far the larger propo rtion will.nuyer
receive consideration. The next • session
will be a short one and very little more
than tho necessary public business ' will be
done.- The number of measures coining be
fore Congress increases with each - session.
The bills falling in one Congress are regu
' larly presented to the next, and the' next,
and saion, and, in addition to these, each
year develops new measures which claim
attention. During the recent session there
was 'cons4dembli diicassion among- mem
bers on the subject of chalges of rules for
facilitating business, and it is probable that
this question wilt _receive attention before
the expiration of the next Congress.
An "oldengineer" tells a Sun . reporter:
"The time is not far off ;Olen everyk.
motive drawing u 7 passenger train on every
busy railroad will have a pilot: - This 'pilot
will have ho more to do with the engine
itself than the pilot of a terry :boat. His
duty will be simply to:look ahead and room
municate with the engineer in the cab. - I
predict that' every passenger locemotive
will soon carry a pilot. I don't . know
where he'll be—whether on the cab or in
front of the cab over the boiler, or in front
of the boiler over what we now call the
pilot and you call the. cow catcher; but he,
will be carried,On ei-ery locomitive - that
carries trains at a. rate of speed, and he
will watch tile iignahi, switches, bridges,
highways end junctions, and do nothing
else, while the engineer runs the engine."
And he'll be the most likely of ' all train
men to be killed, iii case of accident:
Dispatches from Illinois announce that
the current of public opinion in that State
is running strongly against the extrava
gance of the late - Riier. and Harbor pill.
The President's veto is universally appriiv
ed, and the Congressmen who voted to page
the bill in spite of his Objections will gene
rally experience considerable difficulty in
securing a re-election. I There can be little,
or no doubt that this Ifeeling is generally
prevalent throughout the Union, and that
the reckless and unserapuloits extravagance
of Congress will next ,fall be properly and
severely rebuked. Te, people have been
doubly disappointed, for they : have seen
their money squandered, while - at the same
time their hopes of being relieved from the
burden of taxation have not been realized.
There is a day of reckoning in store for the
men who were thari unfaithful to their
trust. ; ; -
Second-class mail matter, which includes
newspapers, magazines and likepublications
when sent out from offices of publications
and news rooms, is ;now. being weighed,
commencing on July Ist and to extend to
October Ist, to ascertain the actual amount
sent through the mails. Heretofore only
that which was deiverel outside , of ;the
county where the publication was issued,
was weighed.: Separate account of the
amount now sent free, and of that on which
postage, is paid, w be kept, and the result
thus determined Will he used as a, basis in
deterinining whether; it is feasible 'to make
free delivery of this•blass of matter within
the United States. •
The unjust iron rule of bossism in the
Republican party in Overiding• all established
prededents has done and is doing more to
weaken and. disaffect the party strength
)ban all other causes combined. If they
:would keep hands off and allow the pop
ular voice of the rank' and file of the party
to prevail, there would' •be harmony and
the ticket would thereby ; be greatly strength
ened. Such a policy in-our own COngres
sional•district•would add a thousand votes
