It Is reported that there is more sickness in the city today than for many yeais, ai this time. The cases have been multiplying since the storm of Sunday. Theio is no need of half the sickness if tlio people worn only careful in thoroughly clotbins themselves in stormy weather.

Ilis death will be a hard blow to «i great circle of friends, to whom the news of his illness was a surprise when published yesterday by the TIIE Sui(. Dr. Lang was at his accustomed duties on Saturday night; he took a chill on Sunday and by Sunday night was prostrated with what later developed Into typhoid pneumonia. The uncertainty of life once more is marked by the passing from our midst of one whom we loved for his genial companionship, and for his, helpiog hand. Dr. Laug was a life long resident of this city, being brought up in the public schools, and atterward going to work m ·he Carpet mills color shop. lie later went .o Bpwdoln college in Maine, after studying for two years in the office of the late Dr. Hoar. Be stayed at college for four years and graduatud with the degree of AI. D., Linking tho highest in a large class ot graduates. lie returned to his home in Lowell and engaged hi the drug business, opening a stoi e ou Mot rimack street ia the place still occupied. He was successful as a piactitionei, and with a large business he combined the raie qualities of being widely esteemud and beloved. Personally, there was no moie better liked youue; man in the city. UP had always been identified wah the social and literary progress of the Oatholic people of the city, and years ago he was the leader in many organizations. fie was a member of the Tonne Men's Catholic Literary association, and aftei- wards libranaa and president;. Afterwauls he organized the O. 18 U., a social club of prominence. Being an amateur of no mpan ability he was the leading spirit in the Boothenian institute, a dramatic body winch frequently played before Lowell audiences to assist in desetvmg charitable efforts. lie joined tbe JTorea- eis, the Ked Men, Knight* ot Columbus aud was the chairman of the literary and euteilaminent committees of the Catholic union. With all these bodies he was prominently identified, and in thorn his loss will be mourned for r n u n y a day. Dr. Lang leaves a wile who was M ss Liz/ie Kourko, and four children, May, Bessie, Roger and Marguerite. His age was 42, so It may be said that death cut off a promising life wheu the f u t u r e offpied so many bright prospects. In their affliction the family will have the sincere sympathy of a great circle of friends. The funeral will probably be on Sunday hut the particulars will he given later. Dr. Lanp was tho first member to be removed by death from the ranks of the Knights of Columbus of this cby. RICHARD H. GOMMERFORD, Couvfcney Club Social.

Wns Well Known in This City Where HJs l''amily Kuiido--Ho Was the Son of the Former Foreman in the Morriraack Print Works. By Telegraph to THE SUK.' JEK9BY OITT, Dec. 8. Richard H. Commerford of Lowell died this morning. The deceased was son of the late Richard Commerford, for many years foreman of the printing department of the Merrimack Print works. He was well know tbouahout the city, and his family, a wife and three children, reside on School street. UB was working temporarily in Jersey City at his trade. His brothers are Thomas S?., employed in Ayer's laboratory; Edward J. and John J., in the bottling business on Davidson street. Paiticulars of his death are not yet received. A New Idea. Messrs. Maguire and McBassock, the street nuinberers, have struck a new idea. They have submitted it to Mayor Pickman and he approves it. ' The idea is to give a name to each avenue in Lictle Canada, instead of having a person's address read No. 1 Jodoin's, Block, etc. It happens that down iu Little Canada there aie several blocks bearing the same name, so that a person looking for another person, who lives in a certain block, must search all day before he finds him. This idea of providing names for each avenue is a fair one, inasmuch as it will do away with the block, and will be of valuable assistance to the assessors. The avenue will bear patriotic French names, such as Rocbambeau, Montcalm, Champlain, etc. The renumbering of tbe stieets in Little Canada was completed yesterday. First in the Field. Today Moir Bros. Co. open their gigantic new and enlarged holiday department. Their immense large east show window is filled with tbe gigantic line. And was thronged with people al! flay yesterday. It is the first window of the season and Moir Bros. Co. should be given credit for their hustling qualities. A Successful Wind Up. ' The Old Ladies' Home fair was brought to a successful close last evening. The attendance was larger than that on any of the preceding nlguts. The American orchestra played sweet music, while tbe peo pie walked from table to table and purchased dainty articles. At 9 o'clock tbe great game of .indoor base bill! was commenced and from ibat time to the end of the game the spectators wuie ImnislKHl coiuideraMe amusement The teams were known as tbe "blues" and the "whites.' 1 U. JS. Carter captained the foimer and G, If. White led the latter to defeat. The same was exciting throughout, and up to thu uinth inning the "whites" were in the lead. In the last inniutj however the "blues" rallied and scored two runs, winmuR tbe game. The linal score was 0 to 8 in iayor of tbe "blues." After the same dancing was commenced and continued nil midnight. HBARTI/ES8 POljITICS. -'What is tlio purpose ot printing the names o'f souio of tho city laboieis with their couid'oc- ords, Mr, Fairplay?" 'A most inhuman purpose, Mlsb Decenoy, I am pleased lo say, howevoi, that this recent sample of edltoual brutality and illthy politics li oonJined to llio lopublioan papers. As far as I can digoover, tile purpose id to prevent any man irom earning a llvlug who e\or had the misfor- tuuo to appear in tbe police cotnt." I "Well, I slioulu call that lieaitloss politics, Mi-. j Fairplay. If politics has descended to tlmt inhuman depth, where a man and um family must be starved or driven to the poor-house because oi boms old offence, or a foinier weakness for ilkj- toor, it is time to call m the services of IheijHu mane society," ! "1 agree witli you, JIiss Doaouoy. It Is not only inhuman but a disgrace to the republican pirty to countenance auob brutality." Doiiif; Business for Fun. This is what the Hrm of McDonald Bros. is dome at their clothing store and »hoe pailors on Merritnaok street opposite Tremont; they are contributing generously to the relief of hard times by selling their soods at actual cost-prices. The goods 'are bran new. and not hold over stock. ,You should make it a point to call and'see 08 them. POLITICAL CALDR0N. HOW REPUBLICAN PAPERS ABE HACKI-NG AWAY. Tlio ri(i7ou Kesorlu to tlio Meanest TiiotlcB of All--It StiKmfttisr,e« Men Who ATO Not Candidates--Mead Set Free to Voto JTor Xiawlon. The temperance societies of the city are working hard to elect Anthony A. Conway because they beheva that it he wets in tbe boaid of aldermen whether the city went foi license or no license he would insist upon the strict enforcement of the law. He is one of the young men aga'inst whom there is uot a woid of~iepro,ich. He bus ahvas bc-en deuply interested in the success ol tbe democratic party,anil will maku a valuable member of the hoan! of aldermen, lie favors license, but if he be de- iented all his iriends will vote no license next year. **.. It is remarkable that while the republican candidates are being assailed from without and within their own party, very little has been said against the democratic nominees. They are all men of clean, record, men wboai the party should delight to honor by election, men who will give the city a good, clean businesslike administration. *»* The only objection which the republicans urge against the democratic ticket is that it is not represemaUve,forsooth. The republicans claim to have a representative ticket because it was chosen or rather forced upon a convention. The candidates who could not get the necessary support to secure a nomination got meu to count them-iu. ts it any wonder that the friends ot candidates who were counted out should complain? Is it any wonder they 'should cast their influence with the democrats? Not atall. They have simply been oveirun by the repubhcan machine, that had undertaken to put Dutchy McDonald's ticket in the field and succeeded. *** As soon as the McDonald ticket was dubbed a "boer ticket," the Citizen came out and said tho democratic ticket was made up by Mr Uarvey. Tbe city committee exercised good judgment in making its selections in pickme out the uion most likely to be elected. Of course a lot of mugwumps might have beon chosen that would receive as many republican as democratic votes, bat to nominate such mea would be to put a premium upon paity treachery. Good democrats first, then the stiongest men in the paity. That was the rule foHowed by the city committee and bettor meu could not he selected. It hut remains for the democratic rank and file to elect the ·\yhole tickeu This can be done with ease if every democrat votes for the nominees of his party. **« It is rumored that Mr. Dunlap ia Ward Thiee is out offering all sorts o£ inducements to democrats to vote for him on election day. The other candidates are undoubtedly doing the same,but those who enter into any of their deals will jeopardize the llcoijse vote. There are now rumors of deals with republicans and it not checked before election clay, the city is liable to go for no license. K »*» The republicans received 829,600 for the campaicn,and the democratic slate committee §17,012.85. Henry Cabot Lodge gave the former $2500; John A. Faulkner of Lowell S500 The disbursements were $29,267.16. For tbe democrats Chailes S. Lilley gave S100, Michael Corbett, $100, Moses T. Stevens $500. S* The Mail this morning moralizes upon the propriety of conducting a non-abusive campaign and makes particular allusion to tiio attacks upon Mayor Pickman. TUB Susr dealt with the issues ratber than the men, with the tax 'juggling piocess, the excessive valuations, the general extravagance and hypocritical efforts to make tha public believe that tbe administration was for economy. THE SUN has made no personal attack upon any inan but it would be sadly delinquent and untriip to tbe democracy if it did not point out tha characteristics of the republican ticket, the methods by v»liich it was nominated and the moans by which republicans will endeavor to secure its election. **« Mr. Bayles goes into the police court to find tuft leeo-rd* oi a few men convicted of vaiious minor offenses who are now employed on the street depaiiniuut. Some of thw men u h o m this writer has singled out for his odium aio honest hard working men and tke fact, that they were unfortunate enough to tall into the hands of the police at any particular time is no reason why they should be banished from the cily or lelt to staive in idleness. If Mr. Bayles continues to work up tbe personal records of men employed by the city, perhaps some scribe as reckless and unscrupulous as himself would write up the record, of a certain official ia the health, department. ·The story wouki'be far more interesting than-tbe mere statement that a street em- ployeVaVfiQed in itho police court for drunkenness. *% William Meade, one of the men whom Mr. Bayles singles out as a jail bird · employed in the street department, was llber- ated ; before half bis sentence had expired on condition that he would vote fur Law- ton. He has been down on the board of health list of applicants, ind lias several times beon promised work by Mr. Bayles. Air. Bayles probnbly thinks there is no obligation to keep faith with a man who has been iu Jail. »** It means a radical change in the method of governing our city if the new charter be adopted. Hotter abolish the common council than preserve it while taking {.awa^its most impoitant powers. E »*» Let everybody votu "Yes" on the license question aad ''jo" on the charter, a** It means a loss of $80,009 to tho city if no license be caviied. fcOCALS.

The stoiv of the avents leofling up tf the time o£ tbo disappearance IB'very aimpl«. Just before tbe win tor holiday ^so.'ison of every year Swan made it a practice to come to BoMjon and secure a tupply of gooda. and the trip which he receuily made WHS for that purpose. He arrived iu Boston oiv Nov. 14 and registered at tho Quincy House. The next four days he spent in the city. . ,' Thera was nothing out of 'the ordinary noticed IB. his manner during the Cour dnya which he spent in Boston, and on the 18ih he left the Quincy Ilouse^ just after breakfust, ostensibly DO go home, i* When days had elapsed aud Mb wife had uot heard from him', she wrote to his brother, James A Swau at Sher- brooko, Qti9., and the brother loft his work at ouce and cumo to Boston. Ho spent a week in trying to tiMce tho miss- insr man. but he could not follow him an Inch beyond the hotel donr. The reason for the disappearance, if there is a reason, is us inexplicable as the act itbelf. There were no domestic financial difficulties. Swan's- home relA- tions wero of thu pleafantosVnature, fie had n wife and two children whom he al most worshipped, and business bad been goad with him, for, in addition to his shop at Norway, he controlled aft'other at Ibl- ttu,d JPoiio, Vt. i There is no question as to his mental soundness, and the only remaining theories of which his friends can conceive are that he has been foully dealt with or thfit he has accidentally been killed anil been buried withoutbeing identified. There have been no bodies found by the police which answer his description, and he is not confined at acy of the hospitals or prisons, aor is there any woman in the case. The whole mutter is a serious conundrum at the pi'eaent time. He went to n photographer's shop on.
