Yesterday mornlnfrtho Journal in a charitable manner called attention to the uotruthftilneaa of tho Pharos. Tho lesson has gone unheeded and the usual misrepresentation appeari In its columns last evening. The success of a ticket dictated by such influences will certainly he dangerous to the welfare of tho people and is to be avoided. Tho people huvo learned by sad experience what misrepresentation of the tariff hfts done for them and it is not likely that they arc again willing to indorse a campaign of falsehood. The Journal hopes at least that they are not. In the present campaign the Jour, nal is let* influential for the public good because of party lines but it is nono tho less earnest in Its desire to promote the public good and to down tho combines hostile to tbo people, [ts utterances may be attributed to party bias now but if unheeded tho experiences of the people will convince thorn of the fairness of them ater. But we have had ono national "experience" and we do not want a local one like it. Wo want a council and city government of careful, competent business men. Wo want an econ omical administration and we want a party in power willing to be respon- ible for the acts of its members in iffleo. The Journal .will cheerfully accept or its party the obligations and re- poosibilities which power creates md for that party pledges an admin- etration that will meet general commendation. It .asks that the caro- iaign of deceit be condemned and hat tho influences which routed Read, VlcAllster and others be downed. It ependa upon democrats to do it and with them lies the responsibility. Will they be equal to the situation? STATUE OF OES. STAHK. been completed, according 1 to a Concord (N. II.) dispatch to the Boston Herald. The plaster oast will be shortly made and shipped to Carrara, Italy, where the statin: is to be cut in marble from the quarries of that province. Like that of Webster, the statue is tho work of Carl Conrads, the New York sculptor, and furnished to the state under contract by the Xew England (Irani'.e company. Tim model is six feet four inches in luiiffht, and in the statue will be increased to seven fuet. It represents tlie revolutionary hero in the full major general's uniform of the continental army, leaning 1 in an attitude ot partial repose against a tree "trunk. The. figure- is strikingly lifelike, and tho pose remarkably graceful, easy and natural. The dress is absolute correct in all details, being- taken from a uniform in the archives of the State Historical society. The fuee and head of the distinguished subject are splendid evidences of the artist's creative genius. There are no authentic portaits of Stark at the age represented by the statue, except an amateur effort from memory, and it was necessary for Mr. Conrads to produce a composite result; in fact, an ideal presentment. Iu this he succeeded admirably, after a careful titudy ol the life and character of the man. The faee is in complete harmony with the heroic fifrure, acd in whole and detail is a perfect ideal of the hero of ISonninprton. Its .strongly marked lines lire sufrfri-stive of the conrag'c and force of character of tiie masterful citizen-soldier which made him ono of the most conspicuous figures of the revolutionary period. From an artistic and technical standpoint the work is above criticism, and tho statue will make a. fitting companion to Webster in the national gallery. THE Reporter stales that some of ho printing houses are complaining jecause all bide wese rejected and tho ournal was given the printing of the lection ballots. Two of the election ommieslonors separately ordered the 'ournal to print tho election tickets nd, Wilson, Humphreys & Co. to urnlsh the supplies. After this ids were called for. The ournal declined to bid and ailed attention to the fact that majority of the Commissioners had Iroady ordered the work done. The Joard had the right to reject any and 11 bids and when it realized that the ork had already been ordered It tood by the order. The work will be one as cheaply as it could have been one, as far as the Journal IB con- erned, and the public will commend he action of the Board In standing by ts order when it realizes that nothing as lost to the taxpayers thereby. GEORGIA'S NEW SENATOR. Editor WnlMi Accept* tho I'onltlon Declined by Spi'aUnr Crlnp. Senator Patrick Walsh, by appointment of Gov.

He disagreed with President Cleveland's extreme views on tho tariff and opposed him in 1888. In the canvass of 180:3 ho took the field for the nomination of David B. Hill. Patrick Walsh is tho owner and editor of the Augusta Chronicle, the leading 1 daily newspaper of Augusta. Do is a native of Ireland and about fifty-fivo years old. Uo has never before hold a political office of importance, but has for many years been active and prominent in politics and public affairs in Georgia. JIo was for Beveral years tho Georgia member of tho democratic national committee. Ho came to America when a boy and learned tho printer's trade in Charleston, S. C. He worked at the case on various newspapers'there fora number of years. Walsh was the southern manager of tho old New York Associated Press until that organization passed out of existence. Tho Wfilght of Bablflf. At the New York woman's hospital they say that boys weigh from eight to twenty-one ounces more thnn the girls nt birth. The weight of tlie average boy baby is seven pounds, while that of tho wee sweet sister is only six and one-quarter pounds. Boys are more delicate, harder to raise and "crosser" | than the grlrl babico, who only vrani regular meals and prompt attention to grow stronff, beautiful, lovable lind sunny-hearted. FIELD SPORTS IN~CHINA. Some of tli« Drnwl>nckii of IIuntlu(- hi the Colnittlul K'mplri). Foreigners have found much Rport in hunting iu China and much sorrow, too. Those who have brought iino dops out with them complain that their dogs die of the mango from having- to Wilde througrh dirty streams and ponds. Some die from what is called worms iu the heart, while others bo- come deaf from a gross seed that (rets iu their ears, or lame from a seed tlutt works its way into the footling up into the log- before it ccunos out Last, not least, if care is not taken thu poor beast is Dearly eiiten up with ticks. As for the hunters, they complain bitterly of mosquitoes. A writer of authority, Lieut. Cradock, of the royal navy, £-ives this description of an unfortunate in these northern wilds: "His face is but one swollen mass, his eyes inflamed and hardly to be seen beneath tlie burning and tortured eyelids, his swollen month and nostrils covered with sores," There is another trouble in most parts of China, and that is in a land liko this, where armies almost rise from the ground when one st;t.inps his foot, it Is dangerous to shoot for no ono knows just how many luckless China- men maybe in range of his gun, though perhaps nono at that time may be seen; but for all that, fine bags of ducks, | geese, snipe, bustard (China's wild ] turkey),woodcock, quail and pheasants | are killed. These sportsmen are not | missionaries, but sailors and mei- | chnnts. Some missionaries, when passing through these regions, leave their jolty carts and lay in a line supply of duck and bustard for their families, and thus make a pleasure of wlr.it perhaps would be a very hard and unpleasant journey. The Chinese can hardly be called hunters, although the emperors and wealthy men of leisure have always shown some taste for the chase. Threo miles south of Peking tlieru is a walled imperial hunting park, which is some fifty miles in circumference. It'con- tains large meadows stocked with antelope, deer and rabbits, In the park there is one species of deer that is not known to exist in ;icy other part of the globe. Chinese ancient history U'lls us of some famous hunters and fishermen. Ono Kiang Ts/.u Ya w:is not only a famous ang-ler, but, withal, a righteous man. It is said the fish recognized his virtues, and though he fished with a. straight bar of iron the lish voluntarily impaled themselves on it. It is useless to say there are few such men. or fish in these days. Jiut the Chinese are by Highest of all in Leavening Power.—Latest U. S. Gov't Report aking Powder PURE no means given to the chase, as a rule. THE TAMALE. Very DlfT«Ti«K, tin 1 CcciiUm- Jlfjclrnn Article, rroin the Nrw Yurie Vnrliit.v. To one who has traveled in Mexico or the extreme sonthwestern corners of this country nothing is much more disappointing than the so-called la mule which is now extensively peddled throughout tho cit.y. The tainale of New York is not the tamale of Chihuahua, or Tucson, >ior of El Paso or San Antonio. It, has the outward and visible form of the gcnu- uine article so donr to the palate of the "Mexican or Texan or the visitor to those parts, but t,he internal substance is lack ing 1 . Even were this not so the conditions are so vastly different in New York that it is difficult to see how tamales can Ho as popular here as they are in the southwest. There they arc sold not from copper cylinders on cold street corners, but from booths brilliantly illuminated by flambeaux erected in the open plazas of the cities. Nothing can be much more picturesque than the scene's in these plazas at nightfall. An entire Mexican family presides at each booth, and a Mexican family comprises father, mother, from one to ten dirty, dusky children, and about au .equal number of mongrel dogs. They arrive at dusk in a ramshackle vehicle, drawn by an antiquated nag, loose jointed and with ribs protruding like the corrugations of a wash board. The carts contain the boards from which tlie booths are quickly extemporized, flambeaux, fuel for cooking aud the necessary material for constructing t:im:ik:s, ehilicunuariiie and Mexican coffee. This la tier is something fearful a;i(l woiuleriu!. Ina jiffy thu booth is erected, the torches lit and the cooking of the highly .seasoned J'cxid begins. Scores of other booths an; likewise erected. Some-for the Kilo of iamales ehilicou- earnio and the like, and oihors by peil- dier.s of dry goods, knick-knacks, gewgaws—of everything in the line of male of ft.-tn-.dc wearing apparel or gimcracks that m;iy teinpL the money from the .Mexicans' pockets. Tho flambeaux cast long fantastic, evt'l' changing 1 sh:idow.s: dusky forms perhaps because tho people are too busy and partly because the sale and manufacture of firearms is restricted. Hawking like that of the middle ages is practiced here by the men of leisure. Traveling 1 through this country, ono often sens a man in the villages and towns with a savage-looking hawk on his arm. These birds are trained for the chase and become perfectly manageable. They arc kept iu fine condition. and if a feather happens to fall j out, of tho bird's tail during the time he is most used it is replaced, for tho Chinese believe that the flight of tho bird or at least his movements to right or left or rapid descent depend much on tho tail. Let us imagine our party starting out for a day's sport mounted on horses, men dressed in long, flowing garments, with dojrs, whip in one hand and the hawk upon the loft arm or shoulder. They do uot leave some feudal castle with gates and walls and drawbridges, but some uninviting, one-story building. The dogs, which are well trained as well as tlie hawks, are tied so as they cannot run about as they please and spoil die fun. Away they go across the fields, with no fences to bother. They ride when they please and aa last as they please. When a rabbit jumps up the fun begins. The dogs and hawk let loose. Then, with whoop and hurrah, helter- skelter, away go horse, rider and rabbit, who outruns them all. But at this time the hawk makes a swoop down upon its prey and with its talons gives the poor victim a blow that knocks it down. Tho rider and dogs arc still in hot pursuit. The hawk rises in tho air and then makes another swoop down upon the rabbit, much to the delight of the sportsmen, and knocks tho poor animal a- whirling 1 . But the rabbit is up and at it again, but is soon foiled by the bird and caught by the dogs. The bird returns to its master's arms to wait until another rabbit— or hare, for they are more properly hares — is sighted and then the fun begins again. Sometimes the rabbit, or hare, seeing the odds are against him, prefers' to fight rather than to run. — Louisville Courier-Journal. — A German physiologist, who ae- voted himself with great patience to 1 glide from one lx,olh to another, babies the counting of the hair on different heads, to ascertain the average number on a human head, found that taking four heads of hair of equal weight, the number of hairs, according to color, •was as follows: lied, 1)0,000; black, 103,000; brown, 100,000, fair, 140,000, cry, dog.s howl and fight and iho atmosphere is filled with the odor of strange cookery, which tempts the northern visitor or hungry native to try u boiled tama'.e or red.hot portion of chilieoncarnio, tin: ingredients of which are beef ami red peppers and other hot things stewed together, like ai) Irish stew.

Y. Herald. _ _ SALMON FLIES. Tho DlHtwtroQ* KcmillH of TrOKtlnR to Sometimes your fisherman will look through your box, and rejecting everything in it as unsuitable for his river. produce his own flies, which he recommends you to prefer. Now, if you were, a believer in the power o£ discernment with which salmon are credited, your inclination would surely be to insist on showing to the fish in this river flies as unlike as possible to those most commonly used by local anglers; for the unfamiliar patterns would be less likely to arouse suspicion than those which season after season and day after day have been traveling over the pools. But experience and common sense have made you skeptical of tlie superiority of one fly over another, and you would be as willing to use your fishermen's flies as any others, but for two considerations, one practical, tho other sentimental. The first is, that you have no knowledge of tho temper of strange hooks, There arc few moments, even in this woe-beset world, of keener anguish than that when the strain of a heavy fish is suddenly relaxed and you feel that something has given way. You wind your line in mournfully — let your words be few, for they are sure to be impious— the fly.is still there, but as soon as it is in your hand tho truth is apparent— the steel lias snapped behind the barb. Ah! that was a fish; thirty pound if he was a pennyweight, lor you caught sight of the gleam of his broad flank just before the direful moment. Sharp as is tlie tooth of ingratitude, grievous as is the chill of shattered fortune and tho,anguish of love betrayed, these are imnsrs which time touches moroifully into painless scars: out ever as the years roll on will you mourn more deeply over that irreparable moment, ever will the potential w/<ig-htof that salmon mount up, and your grand-son will hearken with dilated eyes to the story of bow you lost the tifty- pounder.

Cholrnk in IV,*!*!*, It is easy enough to understand 1 why Persia is a hotbed for cholera. The only wonder is that it should ever be free from that plague. Here is an extract from a vecent report of the Uritish consul at, llesht. a town of fortv thousand inhabitants: "The cesspools that exist in each house are more wells, more or less deep, which have no exit Drinking water is obtained from wells. sunk within ten to twenty yards of these cesspools. There are no sewers, and though gutters exist in some streets, they are worse than useless, for they have no means of. carrying- away the accumulated water, and consequently they are oftqner than not full of stagnant green liquid. Tb» rubbish out of kitchens is thrown out in certain corners of streets and open spaces, where it is allowed to accumulate. Ponds have been artificially made where water out of theg'ittorsuccurnu- lates, and when in winter it freezes this filthy, muddy watar is turned into ice and collected in the icehouses for consumption the following summer.— Chicago lierald.
