THE EVENING GAZETTE: WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 15 1883. Evening; Gazette. ff. & H. L. JOHS rnWi'hora ?r ii[i I'rnpriiMnri. """-' TK K m » : f fr %Vf*>n.,io rtn. I Pr* Year "S-'HJ Kri) BY DARRTER. Stttrrt it tb« PoitoiH'* 11 . i Siller. WEDNESDAY. FF.n. 15, 1 MR. ELAINE'S letter of declination fell lifce a thunderbolt from a clear sky, and people have not yet recovered from the shock of it. The GAZETTK'.S suggestion that all aorta of constructions would he placed upon it is fully verified, for one public man saya one thing and one says another. Anywhere except in politics, it would be taken for what it says; but in politics words are used to conceal motive and object and purpose and plan. It weuld however be all right to accept Mr. Blainc's statement and go right abend and look for somebody else. The GAZETTE has felt now three years that if he wanted the nomination no man could take it away from hitu and certainly until this lettter came out, it supposed he did wish it badly. Several Republican pa pers that have reached us »ay, flatly— '•He has said he is not a candidate; let it be so; and now let us dismiss the possibility of his nomination and con- alder some other." Vet others, however, Buy, ''It don't matter what he says, we want him and he must let us nominate him." Yet this much is worthy of consideration. In 1870, in 1880 and in 1S84, Mr. Blaine did not find it needful to strengthen himself by declining in advance. If he really wishes the nomination, it is a confession that he does need strengthening for him to write this letter. But as we have said before, It demands A genius to Interpret the letter of a political genius, and men are prone to interpret Mr. Blame's according as their fears or wishes suggest. 1 Jut the word "sensation" will scarcely express the feelings of the political world at the receipt of this letter, so smooth, so cautious, Bo able, so bristling with figures, so laden with argument for the Republicans. Yet does It not strike one.who reads that the strong array of evidence to show the strength of the party In 1834 is an argument also, that James U Blaine the leader at that time, la the man who made the said gains, and therefore if he could change the majority ofjNew York from 102,000 to 1,100 Democratic he could now carry that State, which as be says will elect the President; ergo, Blaine is the man to nominate? But, again,'interpret it as you,please. GREAT QUESTION in morals, religion and politics which admit of opposing views are most difficult to be discussed for the reason, that being gone over time and time again and each esteeming himself as having the most cogent reasons for the faith that la in him, lit* tie that is new can be told and there is positively no chance to make pros' ly tes< Such a subject is the tariff. Discussed boldly and courageously since Henry Clay championed it and growing in intensity as manufactories have increased, it has finally reached a climax of interest. The papers of both ••• political parties make it tho subject of frequent "leaders," while of ten groups of men nine will make it the theme of discussion. The GAZETTE gives above its reason for not bringing it more frequently to the notice of its readers. It does so now but to repeat what it has declared before, viz., that a majority of both parties desire a reduction, feeling that some industries are overprotected and that the revenues of government are in excess of its requirements. But if Solomon and all the wise men who 'hSre lived were our Congressmen they : could not unite upon a bill for revision. The only possible chance for a revision lies in compromise and compromise never means fair play. The man who favora tariff says, vl am. for it because it means fair compensation for the working man." The man against it says, "If everything reduces in price the working man at low wages can buy as much as he now can at '• present prices of Tabor." They are wrung in mceaslngly. The GAZETTE would urge all to bear in mind that under our present system factories have so developed that their products run up to from 8,000,000,000 to 10,000,000,000 annunally. Yes, and the system baa greatly enriched many Individual factory men. Why not ? Do men work for nothing V Why our agricultural implement factories have made the west great by enabling one farmer to cultivate an hundred acres, where an hundred years ago he could cultivate but ten. We are the richest nation on earth; we have fewer criminals and fewer paupers than any other; the working man's condition is better; schools are free to all; no man suffers for food; it is possible for the sons of the humblest to attain the highest positions in the land. Let us not corse the bridge which carries us safely over. The GAZETTE believes there are some industries that might have the duty upon their products or the raw material they use lowered; but it does believe that what is done should be done carefully, cautiously and guardedly. And it believes, more that the tasks of Hercules were email as compared with that of effort to reduce. One cannot find ten thoughtful men in any community who are agreed precisely upon the tariff question. He can not find five Con) gressoaoa who are agreed. One can tell after talking with a Congressman just what industries abound in Ilia district. If he is a reductionist he is in fa'vor of reducing all except such lu bis people wtah protected. An out " -*nd out free trader wquld be right difflcniS to Und, as no one wishes tue government to t» maintained by direct, tax of the people. How to reduce; that's tfc* question. The greatest protected surticlea are moat diffusely ne twre<J *3d t&elr «hiu»pi0uf will aJw«»t combine to dcfnat any hill to rr-'l'.iiv. The smaller imlimriosmay gel a ii-iim k- inff through lack of frirncK It is a t.m- glpcl quest on altoffpther. Men have reached tlieir views through lonif years of reading; they hold to them pertm- aceously. We never were so vain as to suppose we could convert a in in who was settled down solidly to z conviction. We should be vanity inc^r nate did we suppose we could write a tariff article to which all our read' rs would subscribe. "Mussed" as the question is among the people, it is equally so in Congress. It is today, as It has been for twelve years past, absorbing the best thought of the bf-st men in Congress and they would rejoice infinitely could they get at a plan which would satisfy the people and themselves. But, we repeat: let fill keep in mind that there is no unmixed good. While tariff has enriched many men, so have the railroads done it, and railroads are not mixed with tariff. While the tariff has enriched many men so has the Western Union and the coal oil monopoly and the telephone and tariff has had naught to do wit h these. So while the tariff has enriched some men mightily it has been the means of producing the harvester, the thresher, the cultivator, the cornshell- er and hosts of other labor-saving farm machinery and a thousand and one comforts and luxuries of life, and today affords employment in factories at fair wages to mlllions.of men. Free trade or low tariff is yet untried under our changed conditions. It Is easier to undo than to do. What Is done should be done conservatively. We are for what is best for the people. IT HAS never been properly explained why a government like ours should rent buildings in cities of five thousand and upwards, when State, county and city always own buildings separately or jointly at all .county seats. It Is not from poverty by any means, but Is simply the result of the indisposition of government to work changes. The location of a building for post office in cities of the size of Sterling affords tangible evidence of the government itself. A man looksjand he says; "That property is Uncle Sam's; I have an interest in it." No man can regard gov ernment without feeling of respect. To think that a structure is the property of a country of more than 00,000,000 of souls carries awe, respect and reverence with it. Then the government ought to own real estate and buildings; it adds to its wealth and strength. Again; in this way it can get just what it wants in the way of conveniences and does not have to depend upon corners in rents, or have to take a building It does not want. Nor is there a fight every four or live years over change in location. There is dignity» importance, majesty In the fact of having governm nt property scattered all over the land. The sentiment in favor of doing this grows -stronger year by year. There Is a bill In the Senate providing for the location of such building here. It is to the interest of all of us to have it, and those of us who have friends in Congress should work to have the bill come a law. CHIEF EBEUSOLE is decapitated. Cause not assigned. He is retired at $2,S!SO per year,—one half his present salary. But flfty years old, he is at his prime and could be of greater service now than ever. As there are no charges it is presumed his place is wanted for somebody else. • CONGRESS is considering the question of lottery advertisements in the District ef Columbia. Several Southern lawers oppose any interference with the subject. -Chicken raising will pay any far mer. A serious blunder with many is the keeping of chickens over two years; they will not lay in any quantity after the second season. It is as easy to raise a thousand as it is to raise an hundred. —Sewerage insures health. It is well that the sense of smell becomes inure.d to noxious .odors of constant continuance and that the noxious gases are hidden from sight, else were all sick all the tlme.such horrors would the senses convey. —Alderman Werntz has a bad eye r given him by his man who moves' pianos. The Alderman was directing the removal of a piano case, when the man's elbow while he wa» turning ac- cidently struck Mr. Werntz, giving him a painful contusion and cut over the eye. It was, of course, purely accidental and much regretted by the man. ' —Judge Grinnell does not hold the members "down to business" bs did Judge ScoQeld. Three or four days last week little or no progress was made In cases, but towards the close of the week things began to run more lively. He is exceeding good natured and does not forbid whispers now and then among the 'attorneys or insist upon their arising to address him. —We do wish some of our Whiteside farmers would go into fish raising. 'Any man with a good well of water and a wind-mill attached can have, at little or no expense, a pond big enough to supply his family with fish all the year round. The editor will cheerfully instruct any one so desiring, how to make the pond, and also how to secure the flah for blocking it —Conversation overheard between two men yesterday: "How much coal have you bought this winter?" The second party answered, quickly: "A ton and a half." "That's all right," then added the other cheerily. I've bought eight and the last ton's nearly gone. I 'thought there was waste somewhere, but nine and a naif tons aren't extra extravagant for two families.' 1 And than iome angry words passed, after the second party had said he'd made a mistake, sod meant four jiad a half, instead of one and a half, and the a rat g*id he knew better; that ttret »pe«en w«* tr —Micha"! Fleming pots a year in the 1 it'niLeuliarv, ttic- jury briu^inc i:i their verdict yesterday evenin? at live o'clock. The jury was out seven hous-8, but we have heard that the delay was due to a disposition to give Fleming a longer sentence. State's attorney Stager )-rosecnted and James D. Andrews defended the prisoner. Fleming's offense was the breaking of a window in the Chester store. —Any of you who have friends in Congress please write, and ask them to do what they can f r the bill to give Sterling a public building. Tell them of the millions of revenue we have paid and the fact we are a free delivery city and the largest in the district. Population.

Parisian dnuilies ure greatly exercised In their minds just norr as to what style of stick they ought to adopt during the season. They are tired of the gold knobbed canes, the crutch canes and the canes with ducks' benks, which were once the rage. An energetic inventor has therefore started a thick stick which almost aspires to the dignity and dimensions of a cudgel, and the poiume, or pommel, of which Is tho clnw of a crayflsh. The article is already in the hands of many of the gandens, nnd promises to be a fashionable success. While the members of metropolitan "masuerdom" ore thus busy about the "nice conduct" 01 i crayflsh cane their femalecounterparts are puzzled aa to the style of walking which they shall adopt for the season. As furs are worn at this period of the year the carriage prescribed Is that of short steps with the "waggle" of the little bird known as the bergeronnette, or water wagtail. This "waggle" should, of course, be as graceful as possible, the undulating sweep of the hips being well accentuated.. The Parlslenne looks, as a rule, adorable In I nrs, but she. is sometimes tempted to put in too' mnch "waggle." The best dancing mastersand professors of calisthenics In convents, board- Ing schools, lyceums for sweet girl graduates and similar establishments, are, therefore, engaged at the present moment in Instructing their pupils In what may be called the artof "waggling."—Parla Cor.

Even Victoria's royal gold plate Is no better than It should be. For such a thing as "solid gold" is totally unknown. I must say this knowledge Is a vast relief to me. Burglars may labor under a like delusion, and f uncy any piece of gold plate la better worth burgling than the best silverware in tho market. But we have all mado a mistake.

Take for Instance one Item: The association bad during the course of several years made changes In Its quarters, and it waa Important to know the exact date that certain buildings were occupied. There was nothing on record, not even In the minutes, to show where the meetings were held. Almost invariably the record would open "The association met In regular session, president .so and BO in the chair and the following members present." Well, of course, some of the members had to be hnnted np, and In four or five cases a dispute would arise aa to whether any particular meeting had been held. It looks strange, but let some of our secretaries look over their minutes and see If they have not neglected Just this very Important notation.—Cor. Cincinnati Commercial-Gazette. Titles of the Shah. , The shah certainly has his goodly share of that peculiar conceit that goes largely to make up the oriental despot, and he has well defined and rather good alzed ideas as to what Is due him and his rank. He has quite a stock of titles and forms of address, such as shah, shahlnshah (king of kings), khakau (a kadjar title), padi- shah, alahaczret (majesty), which latter is the formal appellation that he goes by. The usual phrases in addressing him, however, are: "Kaebleh atlm" (point toward which the earth Inclines), and "Kurban. Shalwem" (may I become your sacrifice). It is not customary to address the shah In any more direct manner; but if, in the course of a conversation, it cannot possibly be avoided, he is not spoken to us "shoma" (you), which is the com- jnon form of address In polite Persian but as "to" (thon). In his intercourse with European diplomats the French votre majeste Is employed, being at once interpreted by the dragoman into .one of the above Persian phrases, and In addressing him in writing he is spoken to and of as votre majeste imperial.—Cosmopolitan. Statistics of Weight. -TJ Qiietelet obtained some weight records, but very little reliance can be placed on them. He concluded from such statistics a$ he could get that a new born infant was, on an average, one-twentieth the weight which Is acquired to middle life) that during the first year after birth the Increment of weight Is about one-tenth of all that is added subsequently, and that between the 15th and 20th yenra more is added to the weight than in any other five year period during life. But Individual iiistancts differ so widely from the average that very little reliance can b« pl&cwl on »uch results. That Qiu-telet's statistics of weight wero incomplete and unsatisfactory is shown by the fact that he did not detect the Interesting law r*e«nUy recognised, according to which la* weight Increases »lowly <or even <iltnin!»ho*} wo»n ths height U iDCre&Bltig rapidly, but toereasw rapidly the height rera&j&fl ' .—Kichwrd A, PftxstsH, A .TndlHnl ,Irntrr - »<™t..
