Secret influences captured the democratic primaries and have stnco spent money freely in an effort to elect the nominees. However well botno of theso candl- divtos mean they will not themselves dony that they nr» Itircoly In iho control of thi'so hrifiHo h;Huenccs They may not concetto much but little con- cesrionc tinully umounl to consldura- blo. That tin-J.MS i omuany has been an important factor in these results CfutcoL be donlcJ. H wus not an issue until every di mocrnt in tho council who voted atMicst tho K«S company had btun luiil out,. Then iho people sudiU-tily ruuliv.ed whiU was up. Tho noruine^: 1 ID r needed Ihom will, If elected, (!;j I'xnui.ly a" tho Pharos says on ar.y qut.-'.ioii. What would the Pharos udviso them to do on tho gts quontloD if a, motion of any kind camo up? No one doubts what advloa it would pivo nod consequently no .one can doubt what these councilman would do if elected. Tho proper thlnff for every citizen to do is to take no chances on a questionable ticket. The Supreme Court decision may bo against the oily; the new gas company may be enjoined also; the now council may be cilllod on to make juat as hard » light as tho old one made for tho rights of the people. There are other questions almost na important which should bo looked after. It is not safe to place in power those named by those who downed the old candidates. Upon the independent democrats depends tho work of overturning the combine against tho people atd they should fully realize thla. Republicans should alao realize It and stand united and steady for the ticket, the best In the field. THE public should be on guard on tho water works trustee question. The Board has always been nonpartl. Ban and two attempts of tho democratic rlnustera to capture it were denounced by the people at the polls. Under the decision of tho election Commissioners McAllister, democrat, holds over and two ara to be elected. If the two democratic nominees are elooted the Board will bo solidly democratic. If the two republican candidates are elected the Board will bo nonpartlsan, Every citizen should bear this in mind and vote for at least one of the lepublloan candidates so that one republican at least IB elected. THE largeflt part of tho Second Ward lies north of Eel river. Tho North Side has not had a representative in tho council for three years. George W. Halgh, the second ward republican candidate, lives on the North Side and If elected will be the only councilman from the North Side, from Homey Creek to Wheatland street. THE Journal found democrats as well as republicans loyal to tho people in the gas flght. They certainly have not been misled in the present contest. There is nothing left for tha good-citizen democrats to do but to YOte the republican city ticket and the Journal believes that nearly every one of them will do so. VOTE the straight republican ticket today. It ia a ticket nominated for the best interests of the people and not dictated by any gas combine, any Pharos Influence, hostile to tho people. Every republican can vote U with pride and every democrat who is a true citizen ought to vote it. THE treasurer admits that while the street laborers are refused cash lor their work he has about f 10,000 olty funds loaned out to his bondsmen and to personal friends. It Is a good time to put a stop to this and to open tho books. THE oleotion will depend today upon tho vote of independent citizens. All concede that tho republican ticket IB the be«t, All have not the courage to vote for it. THE DEMOCRATS HAVE FIVE MEMBERS OF THE COUNCIL AND WITH THE MAYOE'S VOTE CAN CONTROL THE BODY.—Pharos, May 6th. ?S92. VOYE against the combine that knocked Bead. MoAllliter and the others out. HUNRY LABOUCHERE. A Unique Momber of the British Houao of Commons. lie In a. (jood.Nntnrod Cynic Who.sn Mont Prominent Cliiiriiuterlatio Inn Strong Antljmtliy to Itoynlty mill Torylhin. Tlonry LnlxmolK-rn, tlic lender of the British' radicals, i< one of the most talked of public men on two continents lit present,. His recent resolution, wliiclii'iirrinil by :i narrow mnr^iii in the lunise of commons, to the uifoct that the house of lunls should be deprived of Uie veto power in legislation is the i m mod in to wiuso of this notoriety. Of course none of the hereditary chamber's privileges win be abolished or curtailed by a mere vote of the, house of commons, but it was, si-fnifi- cunt as .showing tlie trend of popular opinion, something to which uvuii a British lord is not entirely oblivions. Mr. Laboxiehere has an interestint,', not to say attractive, individuality. iJe is a brilliant conversationalist and his presence is, therefore, always welcome lit social gathering*- Although a keen politician and an unspurijitf debater when in the house of commons, he curries no political runeour into his daily life, and, indeed, he numbers among 1 his friends as many conservatives as liberals. Members oi the Primrose league arc no less eaffer than supporters of the advanced party to obtain invitations to his picturesque villa at Twickenham and to take part in the garden parties, pastoral plays and other functions that, under the au.s- plcos of Mr. and Mrs. Luboiichere, are atnonp the favorite features of the London season. Mr. Laboucherc is a uood-humored cynic, ami lie tells you that oeinp pnst fifty, he can never hope to be happy any more. The best he can strive for is to obtain a mean between happiness mid misery, tiud so IOIIR- us lie. is not subjected to discomfort or misery he is satisfied. With all his cynicism, however, there is undoubtedly a fascination about. him as he sits, attired in u. comfortable lounp-e jacket, in his armchair. puuinK 1 away at his cigarettes, while some- ticiesa twinkle lights up his eye, and occasionally he bursts into u loud irsamv T.ADOUCIIEHI;, M. P. laugh, for ho is neither too 'proud nor too cynical to laugh at his own jokes, nor at those of other people if they nrc capable of concocting witticisms sufficiently amusing. "As to royalty being in dang-er," ho says, on the subject being- mooted, "it is only a question of pounds, shillings und pcnou. I am one of the most loyal subjects in England, and I say this, that if the royal family were to put by n million or so pounds and live on the interest, without drawing anything from the public, the English crown would bo secure forever. It is only the economic question that the people concern themselves about. The house of lords will certainly have to go sooner or later. The conservatives say that local government in Ireland and land purchase are inseparable; but we intend to separate them. If the house of lords continues to prevent us, they will do so at their peril. The cry of separation Is nonsense. The Irish people don't want it." Mr. Labouchere has always been a radical, even, as he says, from his earliest infancy. Re was born in 1831 and was educated at Eton. On leaving college he spent two years in traveling about Mexico and Central America. He rodo from place to place on horseback, and had many interesting experiences during the time. Ills impression of the Mexicans was not very favorable, if one is to judge from a remark that he once made to the effect that: "When a Mexican is not playing at monte he is asleep." Ilis uncle, Lord Tauton, who was colonial secretary at the time, obtained for Mr. Labouchere an appointment in the diplomatic service as unpaid attache at Washington. Prom there he went to several European capitals, still in the diplomatic service, the cities that he visited including Frankfort, Munich, Dresden, Stockholm, St. Petersburg and Constantinople, where he became secretary to the embassy. One of his first great parliamentary successes was the speech he delivered in 138!i against Mr. Forster's coercion bill, lie demolished the statistics on which Mr. Forster based his plea for coercion, and proved the blue book returns to be inaccurate. The speech was much discussed throughout the country, and had the effect of bringing Mr. Labouchere's name into very prominent notice. Since then he has gradually come to tho front and is now regarded as one of the lenders of advanced radicalism. Ho was a home ruler long before Mr. Gladstone proposed his scheme. Indeed ever since he entered parliament he has systematically voted in favor of home rule and against coercion. The Site of Alaska is large enough to allow territory equal to the size of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, the empire of Germany with its twen- tv-six sUtes k tbe republic of Fran.ge vdfr its eighty-six departments, the kingdom of Greece with its thirteen monarchies, and the republic of Switzerland with its twenty-two cantons to be carved out of it. A LONELY ALPINE VILLAGE. It in Without Inlmbltiint* Except Durlnc Six WcHcH or Eurh Y<';ir. St. Morit/-l!ad, which is situated ;ibont a mile from St. Moritx-Dort", the well known winter Alpine resort, is a town composed almost exclusively of pi^-nntic hotels, mammoth boarding houses, or, to give them their more polite appellation, pensions—and gar- fantiinn villas. In the .summer it is crammed with people, holiday makers rind invalids, wiio come to drink its healing waters, drawn together from all points of the compass and representing nationalities; but in the winter it is shut up and deserted; no one lives there save a solitury-wirc-Uker or two, and the town becomes as silent as and three tiroes more cold than the proverbial Kepiilcher. The secret of this exodus is, of course, due to the fact that St Moritz-I!:id occupies a position which renders it far too cold a spot to be capable of sustaining a human population during the winter time. Tho town is built on a level stmtch of ground close to the lake of St Morltx, and is so closely hemmed in by surrounding mountains that the sun scarcely touches it at all for six mouths out of the twelve. Paradoxical as it may seem, it is nevertheless true that this unique little town of gigantic hotels, mammoth pensions and gigaa- tuan villas is only, strictly speaking, inhabited for tho people for whom it was exclusively built—that is to say, for holiday-makers and invalids—for about six or seven weeks out of tho fifty-two that constitute the solar year. Tho rest of this time it i.s shut up, deserted, and nothing save business or curiosity could tempt a man to sot foot in it . The effect upon mind and imagination, as you force your way through the huge masses of snow that encumber the streets of'St. Moritz-l!ad in winter time, must be somewhat similar to that which explorers narrate they experience on first setting foot within the mysterious circles of the Arctic regions. It is to be observed, however, that in the latter case this gloom and silence, which fall like a pall, as it were, upon the awed spectator, aud strike him dumb with fear and admiration, are unaccompanied by any of the signs and emblems of human habitation, and therefore, though weird and terrible, are natural enough; in the former those two feelings become intensified, anil by consequence tho.ir eitccts upon the imagination, by reason of their being experienced amid all the signs of human life and business, and In tho hearts, as it were, of a real, though latent, vitality. The huge hotels, with their closely shuttered windows, smokeless chimneys und general appearance of chronic neglect resemble nothing so mttch as deserted palaces from which all signs of life have been cut off, all movement .expressive of vitality effectually banished by reason of pestilence, crime or some other dreadful calamity. The snow lies several feet deep upon the pathways that lead to them, and upon tho roofs of these gigantic buildings. The shops in tho quaint little main street, hard by, are securely closed for tho winter, and to nil intents and purposes are signless, Tho caretakers- a sleepy, idle, tribe, whoso sole diversion seems to consist in being snowed up and occasionally dug out again— spend their timo in dreaming one-half the day and sleeping soundly tho rest Tho watchdog's bark is probably the only sound that over penetrates to their oars; but when nightfall—and it falls with a swiftness and icy vengeance at St Moritz-Bad, of which only those who have experienced it can possess any adequate notion—and all sound is stilled, and all movement effectually stifled beneath the iron heel of King Frost, then is tho illusion made complete, and tho stranger realizes at once that he is face to face, as it were, with a genuine deserted village.—Pall Mall Budget. RUSSIAN CAVIARE. An Intero.tln(i Chapter on » Popular Epicurean Dlah. The exact origin of caviare, like many other good things, appears to bo lost in the mists of fable. It is a Tartar word, and the food probably camo Into general use after the first Tartar invasion of Russia, when tho ruined agriculturists were driven largely to a fish diet The roe, or egg, of the Russian sturgeon, Of the sterlet, being so large and so quick to decompose unless chemically treated, would naturally suggest a very thorough process of salting down. Caviare in Russia is said to be saltier than salt The sturgeon, from which it is obtained, belongs to the ganoid family of fishes, and attains very large size m all the Russian rivers. It is frequently ten feet long, and specimens measuring eighteen feet are caught from time to time even now, when the fish are netted in such enormous quantities. A female sturgeon of average size lays about three million eggs, so that the enormous fecundity of this fish has a chance to keep pace with its almost Highest of all in Leavening Power.—Latest U. S.

The oily-salted roc called caviare was introduced to western Europe by the Venetian trailers of Constantinople, and appears to have made its ap- penrance in England about fifty years before Shakspearc wrote "Hamlet" It, did not rise rapidly into populai favor. Shakspearc, in "Hamlet," uses it for a metaphor to the contrary: 'Tor the play, I remember, pleased not the I million. 'Twas caviare to tho general, ] butit was an excellent play." So the ' Russian delicacy was an excellent I whet to the palate of discerning- gou I mots, though the public, in England oi I America, till quite recently have never cared for it, especially as a dish or an appetizer. Yet to give a man a fine "drinkititc," as well as appetite, to insure him the possession of what might be termed n one thousand dollar thirst at the beginning 1 of a banquet, there is nothing- quite equal to caviare. There are various ways, however, in which epicures enjoy it besides that of a mere (illup to tho palate and an excitement of the mucous membrane, of the'stomach. Caviare, dashed with olive oil and spread on parallelograms of toast saturated with butter, and then warmed for ten minutes in an oven, makes a very delicious morsel. Caviare, dashed with tomato ketchup, or even walnut ketchup, and French vinegar, then warmed slightly and put in -hot patties, is another ambrosial delicacy. Caviare salad, inaJe with hard-boiled eggs, chopped in small pieces, a couple of fresh tomatoes, any bit of preen and a little olive oil and vinegar, is a picnie perfection hard to beat, and only carries with it a reasonable amount of thirst The silverskin onion stuffed with a mixture of caviare, a thimbleful of olive oil, and fine bread crumbs, then baked for about twenty minutes, offers another toothsome way of learning to love caviare. The onions, of course, should have been half boiled before baking- to release that poisonous property which that strong- but fine vegetable sometimes possesses very potently in combination. Another rather uuusual way of applying- caviare, though there is one French restaurant in this city where the dish can be obtained in all its delicate perfection, is to take a plump young-chicken, s'.uiT it with caviare, and roast it rapidly, busting freely. The commonest way of eating caviare is in the form of a sandwich, and thu amount of these consumed in fashionable barrooms in New York city is largely on the increase, but this, as a rule, except in the very swellcst places, is not the true Russian caviare. It is by no means, however, an inferior article, for it is made from the egffS of fishes in our rivers that belong- to the sturgeon family, and it would puzzle a connoisseur quite often to tell the difference. There are few New Yorkers who can always tell the foreign from the native product, and one of these men patriotically prefers American caviare because it is not quite so provocative of a g-ig-antic and costly thirst. Probably the best that comes to this country bears the label of a firm which is said to have its pick of the Russian market after the czar and the German emperor and IJisumrck, who is extravagantly fond of this thirst producer, have laid in their summer supplies. Another way of eating- caviare among the Russians ia to sandwich it bctweon two thin slices of hard, salty cheese. One o£ these sandwiches with two drinks of vodki will sustain a Russian half a day. It would probably knock an American out for a day and a half about as effectually as the fist of James Corbett. About ninety per cent of the caviare sold in this country at the cbarcuterics and delicatessen stores is American, and it is even hinted that, some of tho product travels to Europe, and, like ayoung fop of fashion, returns with a loud foreign label.—N. *• World. ______ Translucent 1'npnr froitvSO* We«d».

KiilrhrrliorKer* for Comfort., l>ut Not for iicntM-ill I'xr. An energetic and rational lady has lau-ly been vigorously advocating the adoption of knickerbockers as by far th' 1 most suitable attire for lady cyclists. Hitherto, however, she has personally tempered wisdom with a \va.ut of courage in nor opinions: for, althnu^h.a vigorous cvclist, herself, she admits she has novi-r yet appeared in the costume she so highly recommends. I do not pretend to be mtional on the subject of dress myself, but, nevertheless, I cannot but tJiink that Miss liacon it, quite riR-ht in the change of costume she advocates, and 1 only trust she may find the hundred ladies she is seeking who will share her views and boldly Lake thoplunffe into the amended 1 attire. The hideous loose skirt which is. worn at present by lady cyclists is one of the most appalling garments on the face of the earth, and. moreover, has all the drawbacks and none of the advantages of the kuickcrbocker. There is no doubt that, although womankind still sets her face against being rationalized in the matter of her smart frocks, there i.s an ever-growing tendency to dispense with voluminous petticoats in favor of a comfortable paii- of cloth or tweed knickerbockers under a skirt of the same material for coun- trv wear. All women who claim to be athletic and who rejoice in the free use of their limbs are learning to appreciate its comfort for a long walk or for golf, and there is no denying that, ir. this particular respect, rational dress, has :nade great strides, liut 1 fancy all women who love dainty dresses will draw the line here, — Philadelphia.
