of their better judgment and forebore to
bolt the excellent nomination of Mr. Mc-
Pherson. Though they voted with wry
faces, they did well to stand by a nomi
nee who is thoroughly equipped for his
work, and is a Republican of Republicans.

Ihe Petroleum World advocates making
the Supreme Court a fixed institution at
Ilarrisburg on the ground that it could
do vastiy more work and save the people
a large amount of unnecessary expense
and delay if the chief tribunal of the com
monwealth should be centered with the
Legislative and executive powers at the
State Capital. The only objectian to this
plains the danger of contamination.
Warren Woodward, son of the late Su
preme Judge Woodward, committed sui

brain in Reading, lately, lie was found
in bed Monday night partly decomposed.
Ihe bullet entered under his right ear
and passed clear through the head. The

commit the rash act.
Of 717 private banking concerns in the
sixteen principal cities of the Uniou, 508
are located in New York. New York also
provides $45,000,000 out of the $58,000,-
000 of capital represented by the table.
New York, iu short, has more banks and
represents a larger banking capital by
three to one than Boston, Philadelphia,
Baltimore, Cincinnati, Chicago and St.
Louis. The world naturally thinks that
New York has truly become the financial
centre of the Union.
The Atlanta ConstittUion notes that
there is no Indian war going on at pres
ent. The fact is, the weather is so cold
in the West that the government agents
who are appointed to rob and plunder the
led men are compelled to sit by the stove.
In the meantime they are mapping out a
programme which will stir up the Indians
from the British possessions to the Rio
Grande. In a small way, the country
has no abler statesmen than the agents
who plunder the Indians.
Cremation is likely to grow more and
more popular if body stealing comes to
be systematically pursued or even in
creases in frequency. It is practically
impossible to turn a cemetery into a sale
deposit company and as long as sympa
thy and grief make it possible to extort a
reward for the last remains of a loved
one, the crime is certain to be practiced
occasionally and to be feared more fre
quently. Cremation will remove at once
the dread of the crime and the temptation
to its performance.
It was reported in Washington yester
day that Secretary Blauie had written a
letter to the Spanish government stating
that the United States will under no
circumstances, submit to a claim of an
thority over a former subject by any
foreign power, after his naturalization
and citizenship here.
