A bill of tariff reform was the prom- iso of the Chicago platform and of the President's letter of acceptance. The people at the polla ordered such a bill. They forbade any other kind. The kind has been utterly ignored. Dicer's oaths are not more lightly regarded than the obligation that any bill should have a reform character and, falling that, there should be no bill at all. A parly that Is pledged to tBrift reform and that drops reform out of the pledge and merely puts stress on tariff change, adds to its own Infidelity to its word the injury of the country, Change merely for the sake of change is never defensible. Change for the better la Indiepenelble In tariff legislation, else there would be none, for the tariff la the one thing in which fixity, constancy, or permanence iaof itself desirable, unlois something gravely better can be had. Something no better la necessarily worse. It dislocates wantonly. It deranges needless, and hence wickedly. Uosettlement without improvement ia suicidal. Unaettlement merely for party prestige is the suresl way to In- cenae the country against the party. When this unsettlement without betterment, Instead of being quickly effected, is deliberately protracted over a year and a half, the diitreis, the peril and the indignation are increased. A palliative of anarchy, the worst of Ills, Is the fact that the race's Instinct of ordor makes that supreme ill the shortest of all evils Induration. An aggravation of the tariff imbecility now manifest and prevalent is that it can be Indefinitely procrastinated. Business was stranded^ during 1893 by this imbecility. It has been prostrated for 1894 by the same reason. The outlook on it for the rest of the administration, if better, will be better merely because It must change,and cannot change for the worse. • The capacity to legislate at all seems lost by the legislator?. The strength of the Government—and the greatness of the people—are best attested by their ability to endure Congress and to discount its imbecility. The above comment the Journal presents to its readers with but one apology. It is borrowed. It is the utterance of that rank democratic sheet, the Brooklyn Eagle. HAVE FACED DEATH. Tell What They Consider the Closest Oaa One General Had Ton Hornon Killed Under Him and Another u Groove Cat Through I Hi Whisker* by » Rlllo Hull. ICOPTIIUJIIT. 1SU4.1 Adventures involving a risk of life are always iiitorestiiifr, and when you know them to be rail truth, instead of fiction, thuyiire doubly so. "The time I was nearest to death," is u tlicine upon which old soldiers dwell, unit upon which they grow eloquent. That snuh things could have happened and they be alive to tell about them is wondi-rful. Maj. On, W. W. A Lien, of Alabama, hod the exciting experience of having tenhorses killed under him. He sayR: I would say that except when disabled by wounds, I was a soldier in active service from April, 1801, until the surrender of Gen. Joseph E. Joh nst o n's army (a division of cavalry in which I commanded), in the spring of 1865. I might add that I had horses shot under me ten times during the conflict, so you can infer that I was in "critical situations" more than once. W. W. ALMEN. GEN. ALLEN. Gen, George Lee is a soldier who has never felt fea>, although he has been in a great many tight places and he doubts if a man can tell afterwards when he was the nearest to death. "I feel," says he, "that I am nearer death DOW than I ever was before, and that my present situation is closer than any I ran during the war. If I had close places I cannot possibly tell them now, as they all seemed occasions tot action and not occasions for fear. "GEORGE about half the enemy's column had passed with a thundering movement we were greatly startled to hear a tramping in the rear, and, turning to look, we saw a body of cavalry numbering about three thousand bearing down upon us. "Without stopping to think I threw rr.y bridle rein over my horse's head, seized the near stirrup with my right hand to insure steady- Ing 1 it to enter the rifjht foot, and leaping into the saddle I spurred my horse. As I did so I heard a full volley fired by a party of fifteen or twenty men who could not have been more than forty paces away. "I quickly got behind a holly tree with a dense foliage and spurring my horse anew crossed the dry bed of a small creek. Here my horse fell to hia knees almost throw! ng'rnc out of the saddle. 33ut with a terrible jerk I righted him, and w R both left the spot without ceremony. Two of my companions joined me a minute later un- hurt—miraculously saved. Mason Hove, the evat. But alas, Capt.

Of course they opened fire upon us; and Croft's men seeing 1 us at a distance fired also: and for a minute or two friend and foe were Jetting us have all their spare bullets. As soon as Croft saw us h'e hurried to our res- GI:N cue and drove our pursuers back. Hot that we escaped with our lives has always been a wonder to everyone who saw the little maneuver." That was Gen. Butterfleld's closest shave. Books of casualties and records of nearly fatal accidents are common; and always wonderful. But it is very seldom that a man can relate how he was fortunate enough to keep a whole skin when bullets were flying around him. interesting shaves, BUGGIES." 1 AUGUSTA PRESOOTT.

BDGBWORTH, Aflent, *MAmwro»T, mo UNDER the law councils select some newspaper as the official paper and in its columns tax payers expect to find legal notices which concern them. This is a wise and proper provision. It is proper that the official paper be a newspaper and not a mere sheet and it is eminently proper that It he a paper having circulation. The publication of legal notices on bill boards or in hand bills may meet the requirements of the law that they be published but does not meet the requirements of the public that they be pub. lished where some one will see them. As to the charges for these publications, that is fixed by law and secondly by the council, BO that the existence of an official paper does not mean that Improper or exorbitant rates will be paid. If the legal rates are too high the oounoll can refuse to pay them and the official paper can take what the council offers or throw up the job. Thus it is apparent that the question ot cheapness or saving in no wise enters Into the question of an official paper and the deceit of the hyena newspapers is disclosed. Gen. Longstreet from his pretty spring retreat at Cranstona-on-the- B n d s o n pro- n o n n c c 6 his «loee- to -death situation when he was Bhot, because that time he re<vovered after he wos pro- noanced dead by the surgeon and After the news of his demise •had been pretty freely circulated •about Gen, Longs tree* said: "I can truthfully and feel- asx, ingly say that I was nearest death when shot in the Battle of the Wilder- nea» on the Oth of May, 1804. "JAMES LOSOeTBBKTi" Oeo. Jooee O. Tappan, of Arfcam6B.fi, had a queer sensation once. •1 was the officer In command«t BeJ- moot (Gen. Grant's first battle), being colonel of the Thirteenth Arkansas regiment and I was promoted after that battle to the rank of brigadier geoeral, upon recommendation of Gen. Leonidas Polk (Bishop Polk). The nearest known approach to death was at the battle of Jenkins Ferry In Arkansas, when a ball passed so close to my head that I felt its wind withoot being cut by it C TAPPAS." Gen. Schofield, now engaged in active work such as the United States forces know in times of peace, recalls his nearest to death episode: "1 must say that I do not believe a soldier can tell under what one of the many dangerous c i ro u m stances in which he may have been placed he was 'nearest to death.' He has no means of estimating that .-very uncertain quantity. But. BO far as I know, the narrowest escape I •ever had was when a musket » Klf - «aorreu>. ball out a channel through my beard in the battle of Wilson's Creek, August 10, 1861. J. M. Gen. Fitzhugh Lee found Indiana harder fighting than white men-: "I state in response to your qooStio: that the 'closest situation' I was eve in was hi 1859 when a young secon lieutenant in the Second cavalry United States army, serving on th frontiers of Texas.

THE Pharos disappeared entirely In the selection of an official paper last evening. For the first time In the history of the city the council was unanimous on that question. and strange to say it was unanimous in favor of a republican paper. The Journal appreciates the compliment and will endeavor always to merit public approval. THREE years ago the Journal got two .votes for official paper of the city. Now It gets all the votes and it chosen unanimously. It pays to be loyal to the people. . j WE an this official paper. V Gen. Daniel Buggies, the hero of four gneat wars, the Semlnole, the Mexican, the M ormon campaign and the great civil war, had many narrow escapes, but the closest was the time he crossed Sheridan's raid on his way to deliver a message to Gen. Robert E. Lee at the Spottsylvania Court House where Lee was in the celebrated campaign against Qen. Grant. Gen. Buggies Bays: 'We obtained some brobenrdown horses as a mount and were on the eve of proceeding towards Spotteylvania Court House, a distance of eight miles, when we discovered an .advancing cloud of dust from a northerly direction which indicated a rapid movement south of a large body of federal troops. "As my route to tie courthouse crossed this line to the northwest, and as I wive anxious to proceed, I con- eljidexl to venture from the belief .that the advance of the federal cavalry, which proved to be Gen. Sheridan's raid, would be slow. On the presumption that I had time to cross Sheridan's line of march in safety, I advanced near it, but suddenly saw an advance scouting party cross my path just to the south, and so saw that it was unsafe to proceed. "I immediately took shelter in .» forest of some density where I hoped to remain unob- ^"^ served and keep watch of Sheridan's m o v e - ments. I and my men threw the bridla reins off our horses' heads and seized them by the bit to prevent their signaling a n d stood perfectly W h e ; n O«B. £fcaiel BatterfleU, had a war experience once which near ly took him into Kingdom Come with •out any special glory being attache! to it—at least that is what the genera now declares, although an orderly who •was with him at the time tells the* tory .differently. He says: "I was detailed withOen. Batterfiolc •a* the Battle of the Wilderness to start the three col n m n e of our army BO thai they would fal upon the enemy at different points at the same time. We were to start {Hooker's d ivi- m, then Osterhous' division, and then Croft's, era. FTTZBtron LEE. and then ride on . 'to battle with the latter. It sounded all right, and the general bravely vol unteered to do this and to take me along. "We started Hooker's division all light, then we started across Missionary Ridge and got Osterhoua under •way. He was making extra (rood time •when we found him, and was marching in great haste, eo as to get his section of the army where it would do the most good upon the enemy's flank as Booker attacked it at the side. Croft -was to make the front attack, "We were making fine headway when suddenly we heard a call to surrender; and looking up we saw six hundred mounted men of the enemy, a picket, standing no further than five hundred feet in front of us. " 'We will not surrender. It may lose us the battle if we don't tell Croft,' the general muttered. And, then with a shout he yolled: 1 "Go to the d^—.' "And away we flew for life toward Croft's column, then fully half a mile ExpmUnae of the Rniilan and Military Authorities Russians have told me that it is almost impossible to catch the Jews for military service, owing to the facilities they enjoy of changing their domicile. The railways have been in Russia the greatest possible blessing to the Jews, in that they give them the means of speedily moving from place to place, transacting business in parts of the country where they are forbidden, and disappearing with their profits to s place of safety before the government has become aware of what has happened. Forged passports are readily procured, and with these they move from point to point, sleeping on the train and transacting their business through the day. They avoid as much as possible spending any time in a town where they might be called to account by the police. When the recruiting authorities came to hunt up their Jews for military service which all Russians have to render, they are usually away from home, or have been enrolled in some other town or village. If they arc finally caught and brought before the military authorities, they usually h»v» papers certifying that they are either too young or too old for the servio*; in fact, the military authorities regard it now as pretty well proved that of the three million Jews in the Russian empire, hardly one ia of military age. In this matter of deceiving the war office the Jews are much assisted by their local Jewish official*, whose duty it is to register births and grant certificates of this kind, but the matter at laat went to snoh ridiculous lengths that the Russians have gona to the other extreme, and now attach no importance whatever to any document which the Jews may produce, but draw their own conclusions by looking at him, and pronounce him of military ago or not according to his appearance or their inclinations. I ventured to point out to my friend that thepe was little inducement for the Jew to enter the army, where he was not apt to be treated with much consideration, but my friend replied that the behavior of the Jew in regard to his military service was analogous to his behavior in regard to all his obligations to th4 state and evary community except his own. I do not know how it is with you in America," said he, "but with us, whenever yon see a Jew who ia rich, yon may be pretty sure that he has either contracted to furnished food or clothing for the army, or else has been several times bankrupt You would have ^real difficulty in discovering a rich Jew who has not been bankrupt at least once." The German Jew complains that his co-religionists are not often selected tor military commands, and argues ;hat he is therefore not equal before ,he law. The Jew is not often found aa an officer In the German army, simply because the majority of German >fflcers do not desire to serve with im. If the officers of a Prussian regiment desired a Jew to become one of heir number, there is no law in th« country that would stood in the way; lor in this matter of becoming an officer the Jew stands on a footing as good as and no better than a Christian, [very candidate for epaulets in the German army submits his name to the egiment in which he desires to serve, and has to be elected into the regiment much as though he were apply- ing for admission into a rowing- ciut, or any other semi-social organization. German politicians who to-day champion the cause of the Jews loll ns that during the wars of liberation aguinat Napoleon I. live and a half per cent of the Jews who were of the military age entered the Prussian army as volunteers, and that one of the first soldier* to earn the Iron Cross in those wars was a Jew. From that day to this the Jews in Germany have borne a good record in the ranks of the army, although few of them have become offi- cers.—I'oultney Bigelow, i.r. Harper'e- Magaziwe.
