THE attempt of the Clevelandites in New York to indict Commissioner Peck for stating what every one, knows to be true, and what the Pharos attributes to our climate, looks like the last resort of a demoralized organization. Wages have risen in this country since the passage of the McKinley bill and Grover Cleveland cannot disprove the fact by attacking one of his appointees, Commissioner Peck.

THE Journal acknowledges the re- reipt of a recent publication by Houg-h- ton, Mifflin & Co., oi Boston, entitled "The Southern Empire with Other Papers," by Oliver T. Morton, son of 0. P. Morton, Indiana's war Governor. The work shows careful study and an ability worthy a son of so distinguished a sire. Couxrr taxes will be doubled next year. The county, this year, lived off of the surplus. That is now used up and the new tax law will be felt in all its force. The fact that tae new tax law increased taxes in Cass county §40.000 annually has been carefully concealed but it must now become a matter of general news. THE death of General John Pope and of Patrick S. Gilmore removes from the scenes of life two men who figured prominently in the war of the rebellion. It is thus the ruthless hand of Time vanquishes heroes who were once invincible. Tlie Journal says "that the Pharos lias been trying to make tlie voters believe that a 20 cent levy would run the county." The Pharos has been doin^ nothing- of the kind. It lias never claimed that a 20 cent levy would run the county.— Daily Pharos Sept. 21, 1S92. THE COUNTY TICKET.

PARTI" CHANGES. EVERY campaign witnesses a shifting of party lines. There are accessions and losses from various causes but throughout the whole there is a perceptable balance in one direction. This year tho gain for Republicanism lias been so marked as to heartily encourage that party and to discourage the opposition. Tbe Republican losses are principally a class of men who cause tho party to rise several notches Trhen they get out of it. They are men whose action is invariably trace- •Jfhe Vital Feint. The New York Sun (Dem) prints a letter from a California reader who wants to know whether it is to be clearly understood that the tariff plank of the Chicago platform declares all protective duties to be unconstitutional. He adds: "There are eleven Democrats herein Pomona who vow that if you decide the construction of the clause as in favor of the aboli- ion of all tariffs, whether high or ow, we shall not only vote the Re- mblican electoral ticket next Novcm- >er, but will contribute our services and money to the election of the Republican national ticket. 1 ' To this the Sun responds: "There is no question that the tariff plank adopted at Chicago was meant to be the squares! possible declaration against protection and in favor of free trade. It says finally that all protection is unconstitutional: and if that is so, every intelligent man must be against "protection un tii the time, which is very far off when the Constitution can he altered.."—Philadelphia Press.

" Th'at is the doctrine for which Governor Russell now stands in this State. That is one of the grounds upon which our Democratic Congressmen ask for a reelection. Massachusetts made short work of this nonsense when the question was originally raised, and there is no cause to believe that it has changed its opinion.—Boston Journal. Special'Correspondence. J NEW TORE. Sept. 2<j. Everybody seems to be moving. Here in New York the people who are up town are moving down;those who are down are going up, and I' am just going across. There are peoole who, moving often, don't, mind it. I don't belong to that class; consequently after abiding seven years in one place, moving me was difficult. I think it has taken four weeks; in the meantime I have had my household goods, to say, on exhibition. IN THE HANDS OF THE MOVER. The average mover, so-called, is a very independent person. I am almost tempted to say a very shocking one. He grasps your treasures as if they amounted to nothing, exhibits tnem on the sidewalk, and regards you and your admirations with scorn. Yesterday he had Mrs. Langtry, Mrs. Kendal, my great-great-great grandmother's marriage certificate (from County Wex/ord) and my vellum- bound volumes of the "Arabian Nights" all leaning against the fence, so that he who ran might read. He preferred taking my clothes first, and unless we gave him his way, he might decline to move us, we let him do as he pleased. After this he took anything he fancied, and I sat in my desolated household and tried to smile. At last I was put into a cab and had tilings packed around me that I was told were valuables. Later I discovered that the valuables consisted of twelve bottles of beer, of two baskets of odds and ends, a traveling clock and a Japanese image. The silver and my jewelry had gone over in an open basket. The principal mover was a man who looked for the history of everything, and as he gazed at me fiercely when I announced that I bought one jar in New York, I drew on my imagination for histories to go with all the other things. He believes, as far as I know, that a Japanese pillow, gotten here within thy past six months, was presented to my father by the Emperor of Japan, and that two cups and saucers which he broke were GIVEN TO 1IE BY QUEEN VICTORIA the evening I took tea with her. I don't know that he believed these things, but he urged me on until now he has gotten me in a condition until I don't know whether Bismarck gave me my writing aesk, the King of Ireland, the typewriter, or James J. Corbett, the shillelah, which is adorned with red, white and blue ribbons. He asked me if anybody cele brated had ever slept on my bed, and I told him Parnell died on the mattress. What the result of all this will be on me I do not make. I may outrank great liars, who make for tunes.by this trade. I find myself stopping and staring at other people's movings, just as other people did at mine. Sometimes I laugh; sometimes I cry. I laughed at an article moving where everybody passing by stopped 10 study the nudes, which -were strung along in a straight line waiting theii- turn. I felt the tears come in my eyes when I saw an elderly woman grasp a little shoe as it fell from a basket and say, "Oh! that mustn't be lost, every one of my babies wore it for the first shoe; some of them are great big men; some of them will always be babies." A STUDV IN EBONY. We had an advantage in our moving. We had Alexander. Alexander may be anything from 35 to 70, but I don't believe anybody ever called him 'Aleck." At times of great distress he has the vigor of 35, at other times he seems 70, especially if 'it is 2. question of lifting a heavy weight. His appetite is between these two ages, and would be called, I supposei normal. , He has a keen eye for th artistic, and this showed itself in th decoration of the kitchen mantel with all my finest bric-a-brac: he ha, an intense hatred for the janitor, and he gives -him a look every time h sees him that would do great credi to a stage villain. There are interval when he is missed; then anybody can bet. ten to one, and there will be no takers, that Alexander will be found in the midst ol the . books improving his mind. In knowledge he is very broad; he is up in the morning papers, he '.can give an opinion as .to the proper cooking of the steEik; he has positive ideas about his .vote', and he likes a little light literature once and awhile. He can paint-a floor or wash the dishes, brush 'a gown or hang pictures. -In fact, Alexanders accomplishments are many, and in moving a man of the Alexander type is invaluable. He hates everybody else wha. is doing anything, consequently he s5ees they don't steal, and in his own ^ay he has a rather rcontempt forjQur belongings so that they are quite stkfe JOYS OF "WHICH WE OXI,!' READ. I have " read funny articles about moving — there 1 is nothing funny about the real thing. You want your own soap, and you can find five fancy paperweights and nothing else; you want something to fetch you up, and though there is ink and glue, and vaseline, and beer, the something you desire is missing. You set to work to straighten something and you come across a package of letters written ten- years ago: you can't resist reading one or two, and then you laugh and cry: one says: "Dear Marian stopped in and brought me a bunch of flowers:" you drop your head Highest of all in Leavening Power.—Latest U. S. Gov't Report in his hands. for "Dear Marian" is where the flowers are everlasting, and the only thing left of her on. earth is a blossom of a baby, and the loving memory in the hearts of those who cared for her. Another tells how "that stupid boy, awkard and long-legged, bored me with bis talk." and you laugh to think how -she doesn't call him a stupid boy now, but the dearest fellow in the world. Another one says: "I know I have a great future before mo — I am sure of it: my pen will make the world conscious of it"— the pen never did.and the wielder of it has gone down. down. down, until even you, who would speak to the meanest wretch in the world, almost shudder when you see him. Then there is another letter, that tells of a new-born baby— babies were rare in these days— last night you got a telegram announcing the arrival of the fifth in that household.' There is a letter of thanks from s, pohte actress for a few kindly words said of her work — you smile and are glad there are some polite ones. There is a photograph taken at the seaside, you and somebody else — you drop them all after this, and look at that little picture; think out the story of the years, and wonder what it all means. EVEN THE DEAD.. "DO MOVE." I tell you everybody is moving, even the news-scands go two or three feet in or out on the pavements, just for a change. I stood at the corner as one moving went by — it was a little white hearse, and behind it a single carriage, in which sat a woman and man — alone, except for heaps of while flowers. There is something about the little white hearse that makes everybody stop— it tells the story of the happy little life gone from the household— the little life that never knew any pain greater than the phv- aicai. It tells the story of the mother taking the baby from her breast and trusting it to the breast of mother- earth. It tells the story of the going home — the lonely going home — of the empty crib, of the quiet rattle, the stillness of the chime of bells and the empty arms. I think, of all movings, that is the saddest. The older people go, and it means r~..^ and sleep for ihem, but when these tiny blossoms are taken it means the loss of the sunshine in the house and the burying of many a hope and many an ambition. The little white hearse is the one moving wagon, that you and I, my friends, do not want to have stop at our door. A MODERN ALEXANDER. But to return to Alexander. For he is certain to return to us. His - peculiarities are fascinating 1 . His hat may decorate the post of my bed, or may be lost for t'ivo hours, when it will be discovered as a decoration on the dining room table. He has trouble with his feet— I don't know exactly what the trouble is, whether it comes from gout or laziness, but it always appears when he is asked to do anything he don't want to. He enjoys a cigar keenly and intensely, but he expresses unbounded dislike for cigarettes." He dislikes being shaved, and there is a blueish tone to his complexion that some people might object to, but we don't. If there is a liklihood of anything to eat, he can make a fire out of what seems nothing; but, if there isn't, and only a request for hot water is made, a ton of coal and a chord of wood will- only make a slow fire. He is amenable to persuation. but not to force. Un- Powder ABSOLUTELY PURE gone through it. and it is the one subject on my mind, and I can't be anybody but myself. It isn't a regular newspaper letter you get every week. It is a chat with Bab. It is just what I feal^and what I think at the time; if it weren't, you ivould not care for it. By-the-by, I do wish people who write to me for autographs would write their addresses plainly. This applies particularly to a very nice girl in St. Louis—she must be a nice girl, she seems to like me so much but I can't send her an autograph unless I can make out her name. I think after she gets it her collection will be complete, for it is like Chinese—it can be read any way, and you can make it suit yourself—as in possessing: it one really has something to ponder over, SOME THINGS WE rONDER OVER. There are a great many things to ponder over in this world. For a number of years I have pondered over one fact—why can't peo pie broil a beefsteak instead of frying it? For a number of years I have pondered over another fact—why is it so difficult to get a cup of tea steeped rather than stewed? For a number of years I have pondered over another fact—why is it easier to pare a potato than to boil it with its jacket on? Fora number of years I have pondered over another fact—why are plated Luives that won't cut anything but butter considered more desirable than steel ones? For a number of years I have pondered over another fact—why do so many people find it so difficult to cook the simplest things? For a number of years I have pon dered over another fact—and that is why is it that people who have tc make their living through th energy of the typewriter always have an inclination to cook? What is the relation between the dancing keys and kettles and pans? There is a question for some scientific man to answer for the benefit of BAB. Joiiet, and -was married to Miss KaehaeJ J).

For twelve •years he worked to put the Chicago .Home for Incurables on a solid oasis, and the home at Fifty-filth -street and Ellis avenue, where -unfortunates are tenderly cared for, is a monument to his energy. The home hasat an endowment fund of $500,000, and'is one of the best supported institutions in the city. Mr. Uig-inbotham is president of it now, as ho has been for twelve years. When the Newsboys' and Bootblack's association at HIS Wabash avenue was about to be closed as a failure Mr. Higinbothana came to the rescue and infused new life in the management. He was director and treasurer of the association for fourteen years. Mr. Higinbotham is now a director of the Chicago Free Kindergarten association and a trustee of Northwestern university at Evans ton, THE famous Parisian dressmaker, Felix, is making walking-dresses for women who decline to drag the lower part of their gowns about the streets with round skirts that come near to tho ground, yet just escape touching it.

That •was in tlie '50s. After awhile he moved over to the Joliet City bank. Mr. Higinbotham's name was not as well known in the financial world then, as it is now. He was only a clerk, who had come to town after a course in the common schools, supplemented by a term in Lombard's university at Galesburg and a course in a Chicago business college.
