THE EVENING GAZETTE: WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 18 1888. Evening Gazette. TE BM B! Per TVpek-.tO rtit.1 DBt-IVKUttI> T»T OARRTJIW WEDNESDAY. JAN. 18. I8S3. MANY REOARD It as a tough star that It Is possiWe for men to exist In temperature hot enough to coo meats. It Is a fact, nevertheless. O American turreted vessels, men stoo in the furnace room where meats an eggs roasted resdlly in the air the breathed. That, though, is not strung or taan that men endure an atmos phere In which meats will freeze. Ac cuatomed however, to the latter trnt and not to the former, they readily ac cept the freezing and reject the roast ing. Yet both are accounted for in th •ame way. Man gives out persptra tion from his body_andthe extremes o beat and cold do not come into direc . contact with his skin and flesh. Dli they he would roast or freeze as th temperature might be. Drop som water on a hot stove and you will Be that the drops dance about not in con tact with the stove at all. This Is pre cisely the case with the human body Between it and the outer air is an In tervul as is between the water droji and the stove. Any one who takes a Turkish bath is exposed to a temper ature that would slowly bake a pleo of beef or pork or mutton. The take of the balh, bowevei, finds "himael fairly bathed la the most profuse perspiration. Were that checked upon him, he'd cook like the meats preparec for one's dinner and placed in a warm oven. TUB ILLINOIS Slate Register of issu of the 12th lust, exposes a game pur posed to be played by some weekly ~" paper at Springfleld on this wise: The enterprising editor of that enterpris ing sheet began, as the State Regis ter says, to send out letters to mem bers of the legislature, State's attor neys and circuit clerks seeking reelection to give them "puffs" for certain monetary considerations of no great value, aud then the parties so puffec can take the paper to their home pa- peis, and say, "See how famous I am become. Why, I am known away down at Springfleld. Just- insert it for me, that our home people may rejoice that I amjsojvfdaly celebrated." -Anc what the candidate pays the Spring' field paper to insert in |madej to appear in the home paper for nothing, while the candidate lifted up of the congratulations which pour in from friends because he bus grown so famous, struts around gloriously.' But it is, not likely, that the game will be practiced to any extent now that it is exposed;i for since moat papers wil make known the exposure, no candidate would have the assurance to ask his home editor to publish anything coming from a Springfleld paper, lest 11 be asked, "How much had you to pay for the article V" But what a sorry editor is it that would seek to embark in the business of writing up men at a distance, and playing so deceptive a part as to lure men into the notion that home people with no chance to become widely known to fame are (really famous f • ' SOME FELLOW announced not long ago that he had invented a machine with which lie could read the thoughts of men. Such an invention as that would not be popular, nor would it be possible. The creator has wisely spared men the exposing of their distresses to the profane gaze of mankind. Grimaldi, greatest of clowns, was overcome of a melancholy that finally killed him. Men of pride will die rather than run around and court sympathy of their fellows. Since men do conceal their feelings there is nothing one knows so . little about as the mental condition of this and that one. Now one reads, A or B has committed suicide. How shocking! Why I supposed him one of . the happiest iellows in the world. So the world comments. Investigation reveals this and that fact which brought together showed that his brain boiled with sorrows before he took the last great leap into the dark and sought to fly the ills that are by plunging into those he knew not'of. We pass the troubled ones by; they smile, exchange greetings with us; and not a word or a look reveals the trouble that is within. Bo on the other hand, those thought to be unhappy live gentle, quiet enjoyable lives. Burns longed for the power to see himself as others saw him. That might do as a mere gratification of .one's curiosity: but the man knows himself best; and what matters it, after 1 all, what his neighbor's criticism, when, at the best, it is so far off from what is correct. We j udge by the external acts only; and our judgment is biased by oar prejudices and affections and interests. The man knows himself for what he is, and he only mourns that he cannot develop into higher manhood, more courageous purpose and more enjoyable state. In any event, the fact remains, that the curtain that hides the window of the soul can never be drawn aaido~j and well it is that it is so; for after all. there are Borrows that are infinitely subdued by reason of their being sacred from Intrusion. IT is not well to mourn that which is and which cannot be corrected. Hence, Bine* Lamar ia confirmed by the SenuUtj It will do no good to talk about it any more. Only this: it la not well for the administration to make many more «ueh appointments. The supreme court sit* upon all cases of law, and it U possible for that body to wipe out all law* growing out of the war. It is fortunate that there are not many politician* ot tht Lamar stripe left at the *outo; so that even tf it were desired to Oil op the bench with h,» kind, the Pregi&at would have to harry up, or tbay H b* too old or dead. It 1* a tad and dUfraeefol ajxtcucie, ttst» mm who boasts of his disloyalty should be placed upon the highest court of judicature in the land; it Is setting n premium on treason. We have no prejudice against Lamar because he is from Mississippi, or becaime hstook part in the rebellion; . .- .. - - • ..w »» livrr disloyal. Even his Ignorance of law might be overlooked, if only he had learned how to forget his southern confederacy and his everyday endorsements of Jeff Davis and his policy. As has been said, as long as he Is the only one of his Kind upon the bench, the others can keep him In place; but any political party that seeks to stock that bench with men of his stamp will find Itself left at the polls. We dismiss the subject with the words, that never since Congress bad its first session did the Senate do so unmanly and so disloyal a thing as that of confirming L. Q. C. Lamar as supreme court judge. . IT is strange that Congress, made up as it is of so many men of marked ability, should bo so blinded to an evil so imminent as to threaten the overthrow of all our liberties We refer to unchecked and unrestrained immigration. Just reflect for a moment that foreigners are coming over here at the rate of from 400,000 to 600,000 annually; that to-day 25 per cent, of our population is of foreign birth; to say nothing of the children of foreigners. Time has been that by reason of the paucity of their numbers these foreigners rapidly assimilated with Americans and became of one mind with them;-but now many nationalities keep to themselves, not eveu learning to speak our tongue and declining to become cltl- xens. Unacquainted w;th our form of government their children and children's children will be as they, a foreign growth among us. The GAZETTE Is mindful that some nations have sent In many good men; It is not of them that we speak; it is the unchecked immigration. See how the Poles, Hungarians and Italians are now coming, aud how wretchedly ignorant they are. And all the nations of Europe empty their paupers in upon us. It is not yet two years since dynamltards showed their hands at Chicago and gave trouble in other cities. Who get up strikes V riots? who fill penitentiaries and j ills? who supply bawdy with their denizens? Not Americans, surely. The records of these places show marked absence of Americans and American names. We would not forget the high character of many foreigners in our land. Every community in the country las honorable and honored citizens of foreign birth. It is no reflection upon ;hem to say that foreign immigration ought to stop; or to declare that Europe is now sending paupers over here, The countries of Europe have gooc people as well as America, as is shown ,n the good citizens they have sent over lere; but these countries of Europe jave their bad men and It is this class ;hey have been sending over here large y for several years past. Our country Is settling up too fast; land is too scarce, now; we are preparing woe for our children by giving away our soil to the stranger and the alien. We are now fast verging on a population of 70,000,000; ttrelr natural Increase In our healthy climate and our rich • and with our knowledge ' of hygiene will be ample. It la not possible to as- Imllate the fresfily arriving foreigners to our manners and customs, because as has been said, they are keep ng to themselves and Insist upon hav- ng nothing to do with "Yankees." Of course, the evil is greatest in the cities; but it is the cities which are to be the scenes of conflict between order and misrule, between government and jnarchy, if this country do not protect taelf while it may from the aggressions )f foreigners. If these incoming for- ligners had not votes then it might be bat Congress would take some action; mt the terror of a Congressman is dong something to lose votes to his par- y. We have a Chinese restriction law. mt Chinese do not riot, or get up rouble of any kind. They were in the way of some foreigners who have votes, wwever, and so the cry, the Chinese must go. There ought to be restric- ive laws passed at this session of Congress. —The weather warmed up considerably today. Early this morning it was very cold. —Mr. W. A Baker is here and will meet the Wednesday Club this evening for the purpose of arranging for he giving of an opera by the said club. —We are reliably informed that the ihicago & North western railroad will, early in the spring, erect a handsome building at Sterling. The road will not wait until the completion of the doub-. e track, but will construct it at once. Our informant further said the bulld- ng is to be a most handsome structure, ihe road will also fix up the tanks, the oal housed and other places about the lepot premises. This u not .mere re>ort, but we receive the information rom an entirely reliable source. Movements of Population. ARRIVALS Mrs. William Clarkson from Chlca- o.

Some Remark! bj • Cnnndlnn OfTlrlnl Thnt AT* Worth romMcrntlon, OTTAWA, Ont, Jnn. 19. —With rofarence to Rcrrwnintive Chipmnn's complaint* charging (h^ Onnmltan nuthorjtii's Tvftlt bttmosmi; Amorl.'nn (Wurmen on the lakes, Deputy Minister of Filbert* Tilton «poke of • cognate subject, nqjnely, tb» itasdy de- ttructlon of many of our ten and lek» flih- »rles by wnstcful and wanton nrathod* of prxwcuting tiion llihorlos. "We are constantly Incurring the enmity of thrwo en;.'"Z'Hl In the fisheries." he said, •Just Decani' we are making a determined attempt to save for tha generation that will «ucceod us th* uju.'ruct of our aeas, lako» and riven Tuen. li the rlaw of a lob«ter [holding up a very large claw, larger than I* usually BOTH] It Is possible for a flsh to grow to that bulk, but be never does now. No matter how numerous a fan may bo, systematic disregard of the conditions of reproduction la bound to eventually destroy It. The Americans have wiped out their mackerel fisheries, and now they an doing their best to wipe out ours. It Is the came with the BsherlM of tfao northwest lakes. One man laid to me that these fisheries are inexhaustible. Last year 13,000 tons of fl?h were taken out of one of theee lakes. I declare that If that goes on Indiscriminately for five yean the fisheries of that lake will be exhausted. No, «ir; however unpopular 1C may be, tha department is determined to do what It can to save to posterity this great natural source of wealth that, uaed instead of abused, will last for all time." The officials of the fisheries department •ay with reference to the complaint of Tol- •ima, of Michigan, that his net* were seized in Bt. Mnry's river, clearly liul'.o Canadian waters, and that the nots were offered back to Tolsima, who preferred to make a state ca»e of it, . Rem arkable- Fe«t by the Wabuh. CHICAGO Jan. 11—The management of the Wabosh accomplished a more than remarkable feat during the sli week* Just passed. Early In December when grain rates to Jnno. tional points were reduced and other freight* Buffered a reduction the computation was made and announced thatfce Wabaah would lose »I25,OOU in three weeks' operation. While it ia true a loss was sustained on the first three weeks' operation under the cut rate, it is at the same time true that up to date the company's reports show a net gain In earnings of over 180,000. Sold len on Short Ballon*. FORT McKiHNKr, Wy. T., Jan. 18.—At 1 o'clock Tuesday morning fire broke out In the commissary building at the post, and In a short time It was entirely destroyed with all Ita contents. The loss Is plscod at $100,000, with no Insurance. The building was stocked with supplies intended to last until next May. Them are only enough rations for the companies to last ten" days, and tha Lroopa were a't onoe placed on half rations, but owing to the deep snow the prospect* for a brief period of famine are excellent . Knthuilutlo Over the "G»nd Old Man." MILAN, Jnn. 18.—The students of Milan are making arrangements to present to Mr. Gladstone an address and a memorial consist- Ing of a oolossal album containing the names of thousands of student* throughout Italy. Clubs are organizing to perfect the value and significance of the testimonial, and the faculty as well as the students at the various institutions of learning are displaying much enthusiasm over the proposed recognition ol the English leader's greatnods. Booming Bherman at Cincinnati. CINCINNATI, Jan. 15. — An enthusiastic meeting of citizens who are In favor of John Bherman for the proaiilenoy was held at college ball Tuesday night, Hon. Richard Smith presiding. Speeches were- made by Mayor Smith, ex-Uov. Noyes, Attorney- General Watson, Jofilah Kirby and others. A comm!tU>-< of seven was appointed to or- ganizj what Khali be known a* the Sherman league, to further the object* of tht meet- Ing. Coming It Over the Connck*. OTTAWA, Ont Jan. 18.—The customs department baj discovered that a certain kind .of bituminous coal from the Flttsburg region has boon imported into Canada as anthracite and thus has escaped the customs duty of Ml cents a ton. It bears a strong resemblance to nut and anthracite, being broken up Into the same small piece* and possessing much of the brilliancy of the anthracite. It takes an expert to detect the difference. Death of» Notable Xlllnolsan. BLOOMINOTON, Ills., Jan. 18.—Col Turner R.

NEW YOHK, Jan. ia—The 180th birthday anniversary of Benjamin Franklin was celebrated by the Typothetaa society Tuesday night by a banquet Among the speaker* were Mayor Hewitt, C. A. Dana, John Bigelow, Jore Howard and Rev. Dr. Deems. The Orange Diamond. A large number of dealers and connoisseurs were attracted to a gallery In Pall Moll when the new monster gem that will be known among notable specimens of precious stones as the Orange diamond came uncltr the hammer for the first tune. It was the last lot offered for the day, and was described as "a magnificent colored brilliant, weighing 115 carats (about ten carats * vler tnltn the Koh-1-noor), mounted 8- fi brooch, Tvith a border of very large white brilliants." The stone was found In the Orange river, and Is of a decided orange hue. It was cut In London and made Into a brooch, being surrounded with a circle of sixteen large white brilliants. The appearance of the gem Is striking? la- stead of sparkling and glowing, It *ecms to catch the light in largo waves, which it sends gliding and dancing over Its surface. It was examined with great Interest by those present; but when Mr. Foster attempted to find a purchaser nobody offered a bid. As a tentative figure Mr. Foster suggested £5,000, which, amid discouraging silence, ha soon reduced to £3,000 and £2,000. Waiting in vain for a short time, Mr. Foster announced that there was no bid, so that the Jewel would remain In the hands of its present owner.—-Pall Mai) Gazette. ~* ' —~— .5 -• In a Big; Telegraph Office. It takes nearly a thousand operators to accomplish a day's business in the Western Union., Some of these work in the daytime arid some at-aigat, and others do nothing except relieve Hhe regular staff while, in relays of fifty or seventy-five, they go up stairs for luncheon. Thus there is no pause in the eternal rattle of the machines. The problem of perpetual motion is solved in that room as much as It #ver can be solved. The messages that conse Into the office are treated pretty much In the same way as those that go out.

He was, as Is bin wont, in block broadcloth, and while I did not discover either precision or exactness Jn style of garment, there was by no means any departure from prevailing custom to warrant anybody In saying that he was In the unpretentious garb of a Quaker. His most enthusiastic admirer could not have wished to see him better arrayed, and 1 actually was struck with the appropriateness of his apparel.

Never lean with the back upon anything that Is cold. Never begin a journey until the breakfast has been eaten. Never take warm drinks and then Immediately go out into the cold. Keep the back, especially between the shoulder blades, well covered; also, the chest well protected. In sleeping In .a cold room establiHU a habit of breathing through the nose, and never with the mouth open. Never go to bed with cold or damp feet. Never omit regular bathing, for unless the skin is in active condition, the cold will close the pores and favor congestion and other diseases. After exercise of any kind, never ride In an open carriage or near the window of a car for a moment; It Is dangerous to health or even life. When hoarse, speak as little as possible until the hoarseness Is recoverod from, else the voice may be permanently lost, or difficulties of the throat be produced. Merely warm the back, by the flre, and never continue keeping the hack exposed to heat after It has become comfortably warm. . To do otherwise Is debilitating. When going from a warm atmosphere into a cooler one, keep the mouth closed so that the air may be warned In its passage through the nose ere It reaches the lungs. Never stand still In cold weather, especially after having taken a slight degree of exercise, and always avoid standing on ice or snow, or where the person is exposed to cold wind.—Sanitarium.
