THE EVENING GAZETTE: FRIDAY, JANUARY G. 1888. Evening Gazette "~ " TK BMW: P ,, r ,•.>„),,.10 rto.1 Per Year.. FRIDAY. JAX. 6. 18R». ELSEWHERE WE use tl.e word Bun combe, as we have had occasion to use it befo'r*. It Is a good word, regularly Incorporated Into our language. During the earlier days of the republic there was a representative in Congress from the county of Buncombe, North Carolina, who upon one occasion talkec at great length upon some measure tha' • Congress felt no interest in and hi worried his associates out with his dry speech. When asked why he spok thus, he said, "O,I was only speaking for Buncombe;" that is to say, it was a measure that Buncombe was Interest* in, and Buncombe would not be satis- lied except he made a speech upon It and that Buncombe being satisfied Buncombe would return him to Con gress. Hence, thereafter, when a man made a speech for his constituents alone, or a speech for himself alone, i was custom to say "He speaks for Bun combe." THE SOUTH continues on top. I furnishes the Democrats their majorit; and so rules the roast in the House Miles, of Texas, is made leader of tin House by being appointed chairman o the Ways and Means committee Thirty one of the forty seven chair manships of committees go to theSouth and of the sixteen the North, gets mos of them are insignificant. It should bi remembered that the chairman of i committee is practically absolute; hi can pocket a bill and prevent its being reported to the House, or he can declin to call his committee together. Caucu domination is supreme. Each part; resolves in caucus what it will do when the Democrats meet, the south i in a majority and controls the action o the party. Then when a bill comes up in the House, the northern Democrat according to pledged word, must vot with their southern. What with being supreme in the caucus and having most of the committees, it follows as f fact that the House Is under the com plete control of the south. Understand we make no comment; we do but stat a truth. • As THE GAZETTE has frequently sail -of late, so Mr. Sherman says in his lat famous speech in the Senate, the Republican party has earnestly sought reduction in the ' tariff,—not in th manner proposed by Mr. Cleveland, b; the actual and Immediate removal o the tariff upon certain products and manufacturers and thus forever killini them out and so degrading labor, bu by a careful arid patient and earnes and honest investigation into the efittn question and thus determining whicl of all of these can stand a reduction,— not an elimination. We have no pur pose to enter into any discussion of th< tariff question; we do not aspire to con stderation of the weighty affairs o State,—we merely chronicle a fact, as • the records of Congress will show. We advert to the matter now again merel; to show that the statement made by the GAZETTE and iterated by it, viz. that there is not the,.slightest prospect of Congress agreeing upon any definite action, is indeed* truer Mr. Cleveland must be supported by his own party and Mr. Sherman did. not speak until ' he had discovered that he reflected the sentiments of his party. ' One who has ' read Mr. Cleveland's message and Mr Sherman's speech, will see at once thai there is not the slightest chance of harmony between the two parties. As the Democrats have control in the house and as the Republicans have control in the Senate, and as there are Democrats of the'Randall stripe who will never vote to carry out C eveland's ideas, it is seen at once that Mr. Cleveland and Mr. Sherman, both Preaidential candidates, have been talking for Buncombe. That is to say, btth these gentlemen have sought an issue to go before the people with, and have found one. OUR NEIGHBOR, the Standard, kept entirely quiet on the subject of nominating a judge, until the lawyers had made their choice in the several counties, and then it comes out and says that the lawyers chose Judge Me Allster. Inferential^ (from the Standard - statement)^!udgft_MeAlister_Jsn[t a good judge. Therefore says the Standard - astutely, Since Me Alister was chosen by the lawyers and he isn't the best choice in the world, therefore it may be best to let the people have a Bay BO and do .their own choosing. That Is unreasonable logic. Let us try it in religion. Our Saviour chose Judas Iscarlot as one of his apostles; Judas was a very bad man; ergo and consequently, the Christian religion will not do. Forget all about the. eleven grand men whom our Saviour picked out and who gloriously carried the banner of the cross to all peoples; forget them; don't think of them. Judaa was a bad man; we will not have to do with religion. Some people might think of saying: How about Bailey and the number of other ]good judges who have been chosen by the lawyers ¥ But the Standard says no, they once make a mistake; therefore they'll always make one. But who in thunder is McAllster, anyway ¥ and how comes it that our esteemed friend of the Standard who doea not claim to be a lawyer should know about his judicial qualllications. It couldn't be, of course, that some lawyer who didn't get Lis choice in the contest has been coaching our friend. —Our neighbor, the Standard has enlarged to a 7 column quarto, the same size tm the weekly GAZETTE, That size appears to be the favorite for weeklies in tbe cities of the State. The fact that Chicago weeklies are of this she compels, in opinion of most papers la the larger papers, tfie issuance of their own la corresponding •Hogs unchanged. •The Ladies Missionary Society of the M. E. church met this afternoon at Mrs. H. E. JDurstine'B. —Quito » uuinonf m sterling rioople attended last night a party at Adam Lefever's, four miles east of town. —That barb-wire decision must carry consternation to the holders of the patent Of course, It will be taken to the supreme court. —It la reported that a half mile dash took place between two parties, residents of Sterling, over the track this afternoon, each being certain he had the fastest horse. —That upper dam must be built there Is no use talking any other way Let every one contribute to the good cause. That dam means the count; seat; it means the street railroad; i means more factories; big advance In real estate; Increased demand for real dences and store buildings; it means general prosperity. This is plain, sim pie truth. —Following are the officers of the Sterling and Rock |Falls Natural Gas and Mine Projecting Company, as chosen by the board of directors at It, meeting this morning: George S. Tracy President, and D. B. Stricbler, Secre tary and Treasurer, for a period of om year. J.R. Bell and J. V. McCarty were elected directors for three years W. P. Price and Charlea Hubbard fo 2 years. The board of directors waf designated a committee to locate thi place of boring. —A man on 6th street has been beat ing his wife again; It is an old habit o his. He promised that if he were no prosecuted he would behave himseU A day or two ago he resumed hi practice of pounding his better half We are told she Is so afraid of him tha sne dare not prosecute him. -Some one says: "Why not publish the., names o such rascals? We would gladly do so if witnesses would come forward am say they saw It; but where a brute o this kind does the beating before n witnesses and his wife refuses to give testimony, an editor cannot be so cer tain as he desires to be. —General Henderson has seen just a round dozen of years as Congressman It is understood that he will have n opposition in his candidacy. As a facl Opposition would be entirely useless His oounty-and-IIenry county-have a majority of votes in the district con ventlons, and he is as strong in Henry as in Bureau. Lee county has two gen tlomen exceedingly willing to succee( the General and one of them was anx ious that he should aspire to gubermi torial honors in order that the wa; might be clear for him to go to Wash ington;but General Henderson did no see it that way. But Lee county is ver; friendly to the General and will no bring forward any candidate. In al probability, so long as he desires to succeed himself. Putnam, a very small county, Is also strong for th General. Whiteside has no candidate and is not likely to have one; and i has no feeling against Henderson, 6x cept in the matter of his advocacy o the Hennepln project. Hence, it wil be seen that he is about as certain of holding his position for another term as though the election had already taken place. —The resignation of Mr. tieorge E Rogers necessitated, as he felt, by the constant rumors that the older agents had 11 go, has excited general regrel among his many friends here. He has been a courteous, accommodating official, and it does seem peculiarly hard that a man who has served the corporation 34 years and never had his name omitted from the pay roll in all that time, and who was informed that there were no charges against him, but that it is simply a change'demanded by the new management, should be under the necessity of severing hia connection with the company. He has been in its employ since he was a boy; has followed no other business; and while age is many years off, still, at his time of life t is difficult to learn something new. Of course, a man of his ability can step into another business and hla experience and tact will enable him to conduct it successfully; but that does not detract from the fact that honest, earnest and faithful work for a railroad will not yield a man that gratitude which should cause his retention so long as he might Irve, The moral effect of such changes is bad upon •ounger employes, who see their fate ahead of them in that of their elders. The GAZETTE, with the other friends of Mr. Rogers wishes him the best of luccess in any enterprise in which he may engage. Now W»y to Mend Bibs. A young woman physician who pratlces u Englewocxl tells ot a queer case In sur- [ery which she heard of a few weeks ago, >r rather a case of most unusual surgical refitment for a common Injury. A young man had suffered a fall from the cars, and on examination it was found that two >f his ribs had been broken. The doctor vho was called to the case—a man doctor, by the way—told the patient's mother to make a big bowl of mush and milk, and 0 coai the wounded man to eat as much f It as ho could possibly hold. This was one, and then the doctor told the won- leriug mother to bring him one of her old orsets, the largest one she had. The ;ood woman blushlngly obeyed, and stood by with bulging eyes and watched the ioctor put the corset on his patient and jaw the strings comfortably tight. •Keep the boy fllled with mush and milk 01 night, if possible," was the doctor's njunctlon, as he packed up his traps to ;o away, "and be sure that the corset trlngs don't get any looser than they &ro iOw. I'll come again In the morning." "ho next day the ingenious medical man declared that the broken ribs would soon » knitted well togetlwr again, and that hey wen growing as nice and straight as /ou please. "The mush and milk on the nslde and the corset on the ontside la what did the business," he said.—Chicago Herald. THE 1'ERCIIERON HORSE. WHAT AN ENTHU<?IA<5-ric; 'JMTr STATFS ESENATOR SAYS OF HIM. Hiram H. Hevela, end not Blanche K. iruce, as Is often stated, was the first colored man that «i«r tat iu lha UoiUd StaU* MMttt. What I. Snld of the Porrheron Origin —lli>m<"« U»ed In P«rl<— Cliarao- terUllm of the Perchtron—Treatment of the Horse. Seimtr r Palmer, of Michlgnn, Is an en- thnsins-i i;-i (lie Percheron horae, and quite s romniKv is ronnpcU'd with his love for It. The first I'crcherons he ever saw were palnti"! mies, and they formed a part of Rosa Boiiheur's noted picture, "The Horse Fair," which was hanging In Mrs. A. T. Stewart's picture gallery at tho time. He ivns so well pleased with them, that he Investigated their character and went personally to France to pick out some for his farm. He has now sixty of these animals, rnnging in value fr6m $1,000 to $:i,000 ench, and he is the president of the Percheron Horse society of the United States. While in France lost year he made a speech to the Percheron Horse Breeders' society of France, and he thinks that this horse is the best breed in the world for general purposes. "It is," said he, "the horse for the farmer. He can take it from the lumber wagon and use It in his carriage, and I have been told of instances where Per- cheron horses weighing 1,700pounds hava gone a mile in three minutes. They are, you know, a distinct type, and are supposed to have originated by a cross of the Arabian horse upon the heavy horse of Normandy. They came from I.a Perche, a province about sixty miles square, In Normandy. Here the breed has attained its greatest perfection, and it is here that the horse gets its name. How the ArablWJ. got into France I do not know, but I suppose it came there either through the SaaS aceus when they were whipped by Charles Martel at Tours, or it may be that the Counts of Nogent de la Hotrou'brought them back from Palestine during the Crusades. But there Is no doubt that the Arab blood Is there, and in modern times, after excellence and Identity of typo had been recognized, this blood was re-enforced from time to time from the royal and national stables of France. "The horses have been noted for years in France as good draft horses, and they were, about ten years ago, in general use in Paris as omnibus horses. At that time a team of them would take one of those heavy 'buses, with seats both inside and on the roof and fllled with passengers, and drag it along at the rate of eight miles an hour over the asphalt. During my trip to Paris last spring 1 noticed a decided deterioration in the character of the horses so used, and I found that the Percherons had been replaced by others, Upon Inquiry I was told that the great demand for the Percheron horse in America had risen the price from $yOO to from $400 to $4,000, thus making them too expensive for omnibus use. The horses now used In Paris omnibuses are the HQulonals,-the Belgians and other heavy horses of Normandy and Flanders which have no infiltration of thoroughbred blood. |'As to Percherons, there are millions of dollars already invested in. the United States, and there Is n gentleman named Dunham who has made a fortune out of them. Ho might be called the Percheron horse king. He has had as many as COC Percherons on his farm at one time. His house on his farm at Wayne, forty miles from Chicago, is equal to Abbotts/ord in its appointments. It is hung with old tapestry, and has many studies of Rosa Bonheur. A great friendship exists between Hosa Bonheur and Mr. Dunham, and he lately got an Apache pony for her at her request and shipped it across the water for use in one of her paintings. "Tell me something of the characteristics of the Percheron horse. "The horses are generally of a. dapple gray, though they may bo black, and now and then are buy or chestnut. They are a heavy horse, weighing 1,COO pounds and upward. They have a fine action, a fine skin, fine coats, great strength und great endurance for work and travel. They are noted for their docility and tractable' ness, and may be said, to bo born broken to the harness. I .harnessed a team of them for the first time one morning at 8 o'clock. At 0 they were drawing a plow as well as a well broken team, and were only a little awkward. They plowed in the Held all day, only being rested now and then that their shoulders might not get sore. The next day my farmer drove them into the city of Detroit, and though they had never seen a crowd of people, an electric car, a street car or steam car, or the innumerable objects displayed in a business city, they showed no fear—only a kind of laudable curiosity. They wonld smell of a steam engine, and while I was blowing up stumps with dynamite this summer they stood by and watched the pieces blown up into the air without more than raising their eyes at tho sound.' I attribute this fact to their remarkable intelligence, in the .first place, and again to the fact.vhat these horses had never heard a cross word or been struck." THEATMENT OF HOUSES. "What is your theory for the treatment of horses? How should they be managed?" "A horse should be treated Just as you would a man or a boy. 'My carriage horses fared better at the hands of an old Englishman, who knew nothing about a horse, than with any other driver I have ever had. When this man asked me how he should treat them he was told to treat them Just as he did himself, only a little better. He was methodical In his ways, and he always fed tho horseti before he fed himself. I n warm weather lie watered them whenever he got the chance, and in winter three times a day. Inasmuch as the horses could not scratch themselves, he gave them a good brushing every morning, and it Is my rule in driving a horse that whenever I feel that I want a drink myself 1 also feel that-' the horse may be suffering In the same direction. "The Percheron horse," Senator Palmer went on, "has great powers of endurance. He has a linn knee action, and he is so full of Intelligence that men treat him better than they do a duller horse. He has good wind and has all the nimbleuess and speed of the English coach horse. Last year more than $2,000,000 worth of these horses were imported, and I believe thai they are going to prevail as the American draft hornc." I paid a visit to Senator Palmer's farm, near Detroit, last summer. It contain! S57 acres, and the improvements upon i| have cost the senator over $100,000. ,1H« has nine miles of drives through iti woods, eighty miles of underdraining, and a miniature lake which was dug bj hand and which is kept full of water by a steam engine.
