THE EVENING GAZETTE: HUD AY, FEBRUARY 1888. Evening Gazette. O. ft Ff. L. JOHN Fuhlinhrrs and Proprietors. t K H !H m : «*>,.„». .10 rt*.! Per VeKV. . "S-ftfl BT CAKRIKK. >( SwuJ-fluj !alt«r. t FRIDAY. FEB. 2(. ISP*. SOME FORTY orlHty towns have been heard from in which amateur detectives were sure they had knell's murderer In sight, and had won for them•elves fame in detective world greater than that of Vidocq himself, to say nothing of the 82,000 reward. Seekers after notoriety are as multitudinous as musquitoes in a southern swamp. CHICAGO AVEETS and wails. It had tb»«ght that with any contest with St. Louis, it would take all honors easy; yet St. Louis takes the national convention of the Democratic party, and the hotels, restaurants and saloons of our own Chicago will have to be contented with the Republican patronage thlgyear. r- _'. MURDEKS LIKE that of Mr. Snell send a thrill of horror through meii generally. It is that which may happen to any citizen at his home Sentiment but too often throws glamour of sympathy over criminals, forgetting the crime in the fate of the criminal. Newspapers in the large cities are constantly speaking of silly women bearing flowers and other gifts to murder «ra. it Is bad enough for addle-pated women to do these things; it is worse for sensible editors to publish them. Of course, no sympathy has yet been evoked for the murderer of Snell, but the silly sentiment that is cast about murderers and the ease with which they evade punishment cause the public to regard with too little concern the Importance of capturing and punishing murderers. Men of the class who murdered Snell are -beyond reach of any moral Influence; they, are enemies to society and must either be hung or else Incarcerated for life, v t hat tne world may know such crimes cannot be perpetrated with impunity. There are many men who are restrained from crime only because of fear of pun ighment which comes of man Knowing nothing of religious teaching and reckless as to the future, they fear only courts of justice. It is, therefore —of-flrat 'importance that such murderer be captured and brought to speedy punishment. , WHILE THERE is measure of blame . attaching to newspapers for publishing slanders and scandals, it is none the lew true that the managers of newspapers study public taste and hit it No respectable editor would,of his own volition fill his columns with that kind of "news " The trouble, though, is, that every shrewd editor observes that thai class of papers has always the largesi circulation ;aud if he be a man possessec of love for filthy lucre he follows suit It is not a month since we were -in a company of live or six gentlemen, when one of them spoke up with some feel ing; "It is a shame that the papers 01 Chicago should publish this acanthi and that," naming .them, and not only naming them, but detailing them, as well. We suggested to the. gentlemai that there was no law compelling him to read such parts of the said papers and added that it was because he and others read and retained all the details even If they condemmed, that such stufi was published. He failed to perceive the irony contained in our answer. As •a faot we had not read one of them, and we can say truthfully that we' have never read one such since we have arrived at man's estate. We know not one editor of all the large number we call friends, but Is disgusted with the taste that demands suuh publication Be sure however, that when you hear one running around and denouncing to this and that audience the wickedness of editors who will publish such things lie is of the same mind as the lady who went to Dr. Johnson and asked him how he could be so wicked as to pub* iish all the naughty wordy of the English language in his dictionary. It will be remembered that the doctor replied, "My dear madam, and how does it happen that you looked up and found all the naughty words?" THE FOU.OWIKG is from a gentleman of Sterling, widely known, and . who persisted in saying much that was complimentary to the editor as well us to the paper, which our modesty would not suffer us to have appear in print in the GAZETTE. It is genuine, and as he says, he is m position to know of what he speaks, ana we publish it but to confirm what we have previously said, and as affording proof that our people uriy take credit and not we; for Whltolaw Reid and Henry Watterson partnership could not build up a paper in a small city, except the people themselves were awake to. the importance .of having such an institution in their -midst. "In a recent issue of the GAZETTE you invi f .e comparison of the GAZETTE with any other paper published in any city of 20,000 inhabitants or under." J have often made such comparison iny&elf andtnua ypt In fliuj-frfrB ant paper, yes, a single issue of any paper published in the State, outride of Chi- etgo, in comparison with which the GAZETTB does not loom up superlative in the amount of home matter given its readers. And not only in home i «ws does the GAZETTES excel,—its style and general tone are eminently cleaner and higher than the average daily. I suppose there U not a person in the c ty of Sterling who La more thoroughly familiar with the press of SUte, es- p««lally the northern part of the Utate, than I, Had I am willing to wager 0100 that ao paper, in this territory outside rtdeago, gate it* readers during isa7. *<> maujr columtia of original matter in U>« way of no we Rod editorials, or so separata items w were given in thp OAZKTTK during that time. The GAZETTE is an institution that we could ill afford to lose—in fact cor.'d not stand it—one whose full worth to sterling is appreciated and fully realized by but a few of the obwf vera, and they who are "where they canVompare with others; but, of course, the general public can and do appreciate the fact that much time and labor are expended upon each issue." Yours, FHIEND UK TIIK (JAXKTTE. MUCH MisAppnEHENsioN" prevails as to the earth's stratification. For convenience, and bused somewhat upon reason, geologists have named the different stratifications of rock, beginning with the post-tertiary and ending with the azoic period, the rock which contain no evidences of life. The drilling now going on at Kock Falls Is exps'cted to ,go through most of the rock containing evidences of life, animal or vegetable or both, for the Tnnton rock is at the lowest base of life, it being in the Silurian age, or age: of mollusks, and at the lower ail- urian. What is the origin of natural gas, IB not known, although it is commonly agreed that It is formed of the elements contained in the Trenton rock, \vhatever they may be. At any rate.'whatever it be, it had'its beginning at a remote period of the world's history. It would appear that the process of making is going on constantly. There Is an impression that it comes of decomposition, the result of the admis- si.ui of oxygen through the borings that have been made into Trenton in late years. Be this at it may; it is found in paying, quantities only in Trenton rock, and when it is found in paying quantities it is a bonanza to the people who live about it. Let us not set our hearts upon getting it, for it may not be found. It is not thought that it will be enoountere d, anyway, at a depth of less than nine- hundred feet, and possibly not until a thousand or eleven hundred,—if found at all; in nh rt, not for from ten to fifteen days or longer, as it is believed that it will take twenty days to reach the greatest depth purposed to go. WKHAVH never slobbered over Mr. Blaln 0 ,— indeed, never favored his candidacy for President in any year that he asked for a nomination (o! course we supported him after he was nominated in 1884); but we think thai hlSTjuemles go rar~lo~ find fault wheii they say he did not originate any great and important measures while in Congress. Mr. Bliiine served in the House but six years when he was elected its Speaker, in which pos lion he could not originate measures, or at any rate get credit for them. Wher he left the Speaker's chair it was to take 11 seat with the minority, where of course, he would not be permitted to do anything. He was in the Senate but a short time. This originating ol measures has much clap-trap about it anyway. No bill of importance is introduced until it has been freely dis- cussnl among party managers, anc then it is privileged some member to introduce it, and most, frequently the privilege is accorded some man in or der to help him into fame, the well- known members gracefully yielding it to them. Hut it is the great men of any body, the Blftlnes, Uon.ilings, Ed- mundses, Shermans, Thurmans. Becks etc., who supply the argu-nents to persuade members and the people that they are beat for the country. It is of little consequence whose name is attached to the bill as introducer. It is in committee and in caucus that the heavy work is done and usually by the greut men who get no credit for it, and then it is their speeches when these measures com« up for final vote that are quoted from by the. newspapers to persuade the people (speeches are not made in Congress to convince members; that is done la caucus or committee; but for the people throughout the land). So injustice is done Blaine by the stuff about his originating no great measures. He helped to get through an hundred and may possibly have drafted many which he turned over to some little known member to introduce. v - <'«nUfy of the Confederacy. The ciivnh-y of the Confederate States wa» different in Its organization arid character to any cavalry that has bcon seen In modern war. The infantry regiments of the south possessed, though in less degree than those of the north, some un- cleus of trained or purtlally trained men in thn various milJUa organizations. With the cavalry the case was different The numher of cavalrymen who on Join- inn their commands knew anything about cavnlry tactics was extremely small. But on two essential points they needed no instruction; all knew how to ride, and all were familiar with the use of their weapons. Wlih the northern man it was, as a genenil rulo. otherwise: he had nearly alwiiys to bo taught how to ride, and he had generally to be taught how to shoot. Thus It happened tliat from the opening of hostilities the Bomlu-rn trooper showed his superiority over his northern opponent—a superiority which he maintained until the ceaseless attrition of war re- Inccd the cavalry commands of the Confederacy to mere skeletons—actually as well as metaphorically—and enabled the northern horsemen to prevail by virtue of overwhelming numbers, sufficient supplies and the training which they had acquired through years of campaigning, which had been, till near thn close, generally disastrous to them.—New Orleans Times-Democrat. Protection Ag»ln»t Cold. It la well known that paper is a great protei-tlon agulnst the cold.

The little gardens themselves are models of landscape art and arrangement, nil BO many poems In rocks, trees, vines and flowers. Dwarf pines, dwarf maples, dwarfed everything, are ranged In prosaic rows or benches, but tlie pet chrysanthemum bushes are now housed In temporary huta or sheds of bamboo mats, in order that not a petal may uncurl or drop, nnd that they may be kept, at their perfect stage as long as possible. Bushes as tall as those In the em peror's garden, covered with as superb and finely tinted blossoms, are there, but not in such regiments ns In the imperial grounds. These florists', too, have their bushes bearing 100 and 200 separata and full blown (lowers, and bushes where skillful grafting lias made the great top of variegated blossoms look like one well arranged bouquet of long stemmed flowers. The specialties of Dango-zaka gardens are set pieces of flowers that dwarf all other floral efforts in that line. Under limited sheds, which are so many temporary stages without footlights, tableaux with life size figures are arranged. Tho faces and hands of the figure are of wax or composition, but their clothes and the accessories and scenery are made of living flowers, trained so closely over frame-i works that onei cannot even suspect a mechanism. The flowers are not clipped, and wired or toothpicked into place to wilt in n day, but the plants forming the lower purls of the pieces grow in the ground. For the upper courses the plant Is tnken t up with nil its "roots, and they are wrapped in straw and cloths and watered every day, ns if they were In the ground, Instead of being propped up inside the skeleton framework. The blossoms are drnwn to the outside nnd woven into place, nnd the most natural effects are realized in this ingenious way. Groups of ladies lire literally clad in flowered gowns, kimonos of white chrysanthemums being lined with deep crimson or yellow, nnd having folds of pale lilac at the neck. Thetftbh'auxrepre,«entsccncs from history and Upends,;.frj.).m_(hcjiitest_plays at the Bhintomiza theatre, nnd in one case illustrate the last sensational murder with which tlie Japanese newspapers have been ringing—represented In this latter case by a tloral Mrs. Druse plunging n dagger Into n prostrate chrysanthemum man. In one garden alcove . three youngsters stand around a huge vase of evergreens. From a hole In its Bide gush streams of white clirysanthumums 1 nnd a email boy with a distressed countenance and ft red chrysanthemum coat, ,'fho figures are life Bi/.e, nnd Illustrate the story of the boy who had presence of mind, and by break- Ing a hole in the side of a huge water Jar, saved the life of their playmate, who had fallen in nnd would have drowned. The boy In the jar is a common subject with the artists who embroider or decorate porcelain, Incciucr or bronzo. In another garden that is n study of locks there Is a charming little pool in a rocky niche, overhung nnd nlmost curtained by trees. On n ledge over the pool slta Edisu, one of tho.seven household gods of luck, clad In fhrysunthcmuiu cloUies, nnd holding a fishing rod that bus just hooked a small chrysanthemum fish. As a picture, thla little lone llsherwoinan Is the most charming thing In Dango-zakn, and the tiny little amphitheatre, with Its high rocky walls, Its mirror pool and parted curtains of mnpJe branches, is worth raving over, •without the contemplative deity being Introduced. The great piece of the year Is a scene from ancient history, where the Empress JliiLJO nnd her councilor, Takenonchl, stand on the deck of a chrysanthemum ship, bound for the conquest of Korea, and receive omens from the gods of luck and the marine deities, over whom Jingo Kogo had control. Only the forward half of the ship Is shown, but that is more than fifty feet long; a'prow of yellow chrysanthemums and a hull of banded red and white flowers, riding on u deep green sea flecked with a foam of white flowers. Seeing thla life size ship of living chrysanthemums, that has been on view for a fortnight nnd is good for n fortnight longer, makes one smile to remember the tiny floral ship* thnt the llm-lhts of the western world build up 'as nmrvels of their nrt. The giant of AlnzMi Is a splendid fellow, thirty'feet high, with shoes and sword nnd voluminous garments of highly colored flowers, and the ma.sk fncc has a pair of big rolling eyeballs that hold Japanese children spellbound. One chrysanthemum man fleeing from the giant has cllml>ed a live .pine tree, and two others are hiding behind a mossy green rock. One florist has a large landscape piece, with a waterfall of white chrysanthemums pouring through a gap in a mountain range and spreading into a stream, where a huge green dragon with red eyes and foaming mouth Is coiling and disporting itself. A rustic bridge, carpeted with reddish-brown flowers, crosses the stream, nnd a chrysanthemum woman leads n chrysanthemum horse, ridden by a chrysanthemum man, across the tirldge. The third monumental pieceof this season represents a temple drum nnd standard some thirty feet high altogether, with a big demon coming outof one end of it and terrifying some pilgrims and worshipers below. This colossal piece and some wonderful chrysanthemum bushes with 200 odd flowers on them are passing attractions in a garden celebrated for its beautiful landscape*. — Japan Cor. ' Globe- Democrat. Description of the Catacombs The Roman Catacombs ore long and narrow pas.snaes or cross galleries, exca- Vntcd In the bowels of the earth in the hills outside and around the city, for the burial of thedend. They are dark and ?loomy, with only on occasional ray of light from nlwve. The galleries have two or more stories, all filled with tombs, and form nn intricate net work or subterranean labyrinth. Small compartments (locull) for the reception of the dead were cnt out like shelves in the perpendicular walls, and rectangular chambers (cnbiculn) for families or distinguished martyrs. They wore closed with e. slab of marble or ;lle. The more wealthy were laid in aar- cophngl. The 'ceiling IH flat, sometimes slightly arched. Space was economized so as to leave room usually only for a single person, the average width of the passages being 3 1-2 to 8 feet. Thla economy may be traced to the poverty of the early Chriatl.uu, and also to their strong sense of. community In life and in deuth. The little oratories with altaru and episcopal CBOIra cnt in the tufa are probably of later Construction, and could accommodate only * few persons at a time. They were iulted tor faneml service* and private davotion, but not for public worship.—r ' ' ia *"• - " - K—The free bridge is being cleaned this aftornoon. —Dr. .1. r.

The poor made homeless in an hour have great need for help. Parties desiring to subscribe can send direct to the mayor of Mount Vernon, or the GAZETTE will forward for them. —The Galena packing house has done a splendid business this winter. The Galena Gazette says it has not only been of profit to the owners, but of Incalculable benefit to farmers, as offering them a ready market at good price and to the city by affording employment to many men.— Sterling must have a pork packing house here. ' —The Chicago Times of this morning says: "C. C. Johnson,"of Sterling, is at Washington to help Congress appropriate 8100,000 for a p*bMc building in bistown, blllsfor that purpose have beeni ntroduced by Senator Cullrm and General Henderson " Another paper says that C. M. Worthington and C. C. Johnson are at Washington for the purpose And so we repeat, "Go away from home for news." —Ben Shaw, 'envious of our mouse atury, has entered the list of writers on domestic animals, his initiatory article being a feline (feelin') scratch In a single clause on a sad cat-astrophe at the Central depot a day or two since in which a Thomas Cat was the victim Thomas was owned by James Santman an;i -doubtless having heard of the beauty and grace of New Orleans females got ahead of conductor and railroad by riding in a car loaded with Hour nearly to the Cresce»» City; when its mewsing aloud revealed its place of hiding, and it was seized, lectured and told 1 It'had gone too fur already.
