Carriers dealers agents and newsboys Are required to deliver it Complete. Neglect to do this should be Rej arted to this office. Esp weather indications. A colder northerly to Westerly winds rising barometer partly Cloudy and occasional Light Snow. A mass local matter published our extra Sheet this morning1, is extraordinary Public interest. We refer to the depositions showing How the Money was raised by tie various Catholic churches this City for Church buildings schools a. This has been in the nature very private business but the particulars Are told in process showing that All the Money did not come from the Purcell. The people Cincinnati will read with deep interest the account Given by . Stringer his donations to the Catholic churches Cincinnati. He gave the Cathedral alone about thirty thousand dollars and the King Bavaria gave through Rev. Father f. K. Weininger three thousand Gulden for the property the society Jesus Longworth Street. These Are specimens hundreds items. If our democratic friends do not mean anything by the Morgan joint Rule at present Why not drop it _ it is just As Well for the members the legislature to take what president Hayes Calls a both Public opinion. They need it in Cincinnati this week. It happens that the distinguished Robeson is not the new Republican senator trom new Jersey. Still he is a great constitutional lawyer and that ought to be a help to him. Judging from the experience Crane Breed amp ., persons who bore Here for water should be careful that they do not strike fire. We stand upon Blue Limestone rocks and fiery gases Roll beneath. General Young is elevating his Ebe Nezer unnecessarily the subject the Cincinnati collect worship. The general should become Placid and allow his natural generosity nature to display itself. We Are glad to hear that . Warner Ohio who has sacrificed himself the altar the Silver Dollar has taken up the problem the races men. We desire that Warner should constantly maintain something hefty his mind. It is just As Well that there should not be any partisan legislation in Indiana this Winter. Perhaps our friends will be Able to restrain themselves about the Observance the first Day the week. The Republican party needs cultivation in the open air in Indiana. _ they might As Well Call the Snow slides the Rocky mountains avalanches at once. And our people must imitate the Swiss taking care the Mountain forests they will subject themselves in Alpine regions to constant losses and occasionally terrible catastrophes. The next move the Irish land league will be to strike against payment rents. It is thought this strike will be Universal in Ireland and prove to be one the most formidable troubles with which a government Ever had to Deal. If a the Irish Farmers refuse to rent the landlords will come to grief. Colonel Higginson Massachusetts wanted a a Biger Man than old Dawes in the Senate and yet old Massachusetts sent old Dawes for another term. Massachusetts can Afroim to Send Dawes. It is Well not to be loaded with too Many great men. Dawes is big enough for business and Massachusetts Means business. The democracy have the Opportunity to dose the present Congress with two acts that would be greatly to their credit. They might pass a practicable funding a Cheme and they Nii git gracefully place general Grant the retired list As a general. But they have not the business a Ense to do the one thing the Grace to do the other. The Fina Ciering with respect to the Catholic churches and schools and other institutions in this City has never been so completely presented to the Public As in the depositions we publish this morning. It has been necessary that a he Catholic congregations under the circumstances this diocese should Tell where they got their Money and Many the particulars Are singularly interesting. The measure that would do More than any other which is possible for the betterment the spiritual condition Cincinnati is a liquor License Law. It ought to be a Law at once stringent and Liberal and no licenses should be is3ued for the Sale liquor at places amusement. The sentimentalist who Are attempting to replace the City in the hands the democratic 7>arty should think these things and spare us to Weir Deso lating projects impracticable Reform. An Able bodied Lunatic writes to express the delicate judgment that we were bribed to publish the letter Tom Ambrose. After All the newspaper business is a profound mystery to a portion the human race. We published the letter . Am Domi Mcm would be Over for a time. A woman that won. The records martyrdom testify to the fact that no one goes to the stake for a cause with More unflinching courage than a woman whose mind is made up. Fortunately in this age toleration such tests Devotion and heroism Are not required either sex. But there Are occasions when the spirit that makes sacrifice before Concession is made Manifest in the flesh. An instance this kind took place in the Essex police court new York a Day two ago. A mrs. Herrick who is described As a medical student at the woman a medical College had need a new gown and contracted with a mrs. Vermilyea a dress maker to construct that article wearing apparel at the contract Price six dollars. When the dress was finished and it appears to have been done to the satisfaction mrs. Herrick and the Bill was rendered there was an extra charge fifty cents for alterations made during the process construction. Mrs. Herrick flatly refused to it a discussion followed which grew animated As it progressed and the vocabulary the English language finally becoming inadequate to express the feeling the parties they slapped each others faces with something the warmth with which an indignant Mother applies her dough Kne aders to the Cushion a recalcitrant child. For this the affronted dress maker had mrs. Herrick haled before the Justice Essex Market court. Accused As the aggressor the magistrate required her to apologize to the dress maker but this she refused to do. Then the dress maker took Down her hair and displayed to the court certain abrasions which she claimed were due to the energetic action mrs. Herrick but this produced no effect upon the medical student. It was now the magistrate7� turn to be puzzled and to make the Best it. He shut up both women in a room to Settle the difficulty and to return to him after a reconciliation had been effected. But this had the directly opposite effect. They returned to tie court room angrier than Ever. Nor did a repetition this treatment result More fortunately. Both women insisted that they were legally and morally right and would not yield so much As a hair. To end the dispute the magistrate himself demanded an apology from mrs. Herrick. He might As Well in Short dresses and an inadequate Protection the legs from the Knees Down Aud if she chooses to put her hopeful 6on into knickerbockers with a smart Chance that he will Coli tract a bad cold and rheumatism How is the society for the Preven it will be a Fine Day when mammas can not decorate their offspring As suits their own taste and fancy whether in so doing the Laws health Are regarded not. What Are the privileges american citizenship Worth if we Are to be denied the right to clothe our own households according to tie dictates fashions that we approve if this privilege is denied us some meddling reformer will presently interfere to dictate what the children shall eat and drink and deprive them the sweetmeats the confections the pies and pastries and the Rich gravies and syrups with which fond parents Delight to gratify their children and Send a majority them to the dentist and the doctor if not to the undertaker. We must have no such meddlesome Ness As miss Wright suggests. The census shows that in spite All drawbacks we Are a prolific people and will populate this continent and the islands the sea quite soon a a Republican Reader a who writes us critically and reserves his valuable name for future usefulness is a misinformed person. He is not taking Steps to improve the morals the people Cincinnati but to throw off All restraint. In other words he Woula turn the City upside Down into the hands the democratic party and those Republican ringster3 who share spoils with the democracy. He thinks he would close evil places amusement. He would do nothing the kind. The result Liis policy would be to give the vilest shows free papers. He thinks he it would close gambling houses and houses prostitution. There again he is mistaken. He would place those houses for a Black mail fund under the Protection the police and contribute More than ten thousand dollars a year to tie conniption our City politics. We shall insist that when people profess to undertake works Reform they should know what they Are doing. A the trial a Young Man named Edward Simmons for killing a keeper in the reformatory in Elmira n. Y., has been begun. The keeper entered the convicts cell for the purpose taking him out for punishment lie having violated the rules the establishment. Thereupon Simmons plunged a knife into him killing him instantly. There is nothing unusual about the Case save the sympathy manifested for the homicide by the ladies who have demanded in court Anil Send bouquets and blood from a turnip water from a Rock. Then he threatened her with imprisonment and she smiled sweetly and serenely. She went farther she intimated a general contempt for courts and police courts in particular. She branched off into an entertaining autobiography and wound up by telling the magistrate that his court was a farce. It was the magistrates turn now to be angry. He put his threat into execution Aud ordered an officer to lock mrs. Herrick up in default $300 bail. She exhibited no emotion As she was led off and in ten minutes she was brought Back and told to appear tie next Day. She walked out court conscious her Victor Aud promptly the next Day reappeared but the dress maker after consultation decided to withdraw her complaint. She Sigried d letter a knowledge Nethat she had received satisfaction and both women left the court. When asked by a reporter what object the court could have had in Locking her up for ten minutes mrs. Herrick with a withering smile replied a i done to know indeed unless it was to inspire me with cake and other delicacies to the sheriff expecting him to deliver them to the accused. The plea for this is that the keeper was needlessly severe in his treatment Simmons and that it was his extraordinary cruelty that made Simmons desperate enough to kill him. Nevertheless it is made Plain that Simmons violated tie rules and brought punishment himself. He had Only to behave himself and conform to regulations to avoid discipline. This fact the maudlin sympathizers seem to the n. T. Nation says a nowhere is there the smallest mention Platte a opinions any subject now Imore. Or Likely to come before Congress his qualifications for dealing with them helping to Deal with them. Well Hasni to the nation opinions enough Why in Thunder so to speak should Tom Platt trouble himself with a system solemn opinions when the nation holds All that Are necessary Awe a but she added la at the inspiration was wanting. She was not overwhelmed by the severity the court and would have remained in prison an indefinite length time before she would apologize to tie court the dress maker the fifty cents Over the contract Price for the dress. And she won. The death A. Sothern in London is announced. Though his earliest celebrity As an actor was obtained in America he was a native England and while his popularity in this country was great perhaps he was held in higher consideration abroad. His lord Dun dreary was so genuine that it seemed quite natural to look upon him As one the English nobility. He was a compound As queer As rare a most genial and amiable Man but with eccentric and variable Severi ties a genuine humorist and painstaking practical joker a the wonderful resources Bis wit and his Powers mimicry were Only thoroughly known to those who knew him Well personally. He was perhaps the funniest Man alive the stage but he was funnier in private than in professional life. He was a most picturesque Man full errors and follies and startling contrasts. His life for several years had been one extreme excitements rather than solid enjoyments and lie contemplated the end which he had been fully warned with entire composure. His age was about fifty six years and he had for a Quarter a Century profited by one the most notable successes in the history the stage. _ _ a new Reform has been set foot in new York City by miss Susan Wright a Scliool-m�8tre88 and principal the primary department a Ward school. She lately addressed a letter to the Board health asserting that the Short dresses girls and the knee breeches knickerbockers boys with the space Between the knee and the ankle lightly Clad undermined the strength the constitutions and the health such people. She boldly asserted that these costumes wholly unfitted for the Winter season were making More havoc among the Young people Tuliau any other single cause. The letter miss Wright was referred to the society for the prevention cruelty to children and a report is to be made it. But even should it be proven that miss Wright is right in her conclusions As to the deleterious effects this Mode dressing children what can the Board health the society to which the letter was referred do about it in private schools where the conditions admittance Are made by the principal the school it is possible to prescribe a certain Grade dress for the pupils and this is not infrequently done in this country Aud is More common in Europe. But who has tie authority to interfere in the common schools and say with what manner clothing tie children shall be Clad it would require sump uary Law to govern in that matter and such a Law would be regarded As an outrage upon individual rights and privileges. The tendency is away from such legislation Mot towards it. It is not in the Power a Board education to prevent a foolish and vain Mother from sending her Little girl to the Public schools a a history your for Many year country people have been considered legitimate Vicat for various swindlers. Especially those not id the habit Reading a Good secular newspaper Are Apt to be taken in by Patent wire Fence project and miraculous fruit tree grafts. One tie neatest Sells lately put upon the Lon suffer Uii grangers however is a a a history their respective counties. Eloquent advertising agents speaking with the tongues Angels canvass a Given locality farm by farm and Tell the Good people that a history their county is being written. It is to go Back to the Days when the red Man howled in the wilderness. It will Tell what White Many sax Laid Low the first Forest tree in those parts what woman was scalped and what baby bad its brains dashed out by indians. Also the history the first White families that settled in the county is to be especially enlarged . This to tickle the descendants the ancient Smiths Joneses and Perkinss. The important events i the history the county Are to be narrated Ai leg to. Such As the flood and cholera this year and the great revival religion in the next the headless ghost that appeared in 1810, and the a Yang the Corner Stone the f dunh Zion Duck Creek Church in 1630, the building the new court House in 1840. Besides this great history will contain biographical sketches All the multitude great men thru had obtained their being within the Boundary inc Podunk county and thence gone Forth to Wield the destinies the nation get a clerkship in the state legislature. And the Book is to to bigger than the family Bible. Thug and so gorgeous Are the promises made by the oily agents to the funner. If these promises were honestly fulfilled certainly there could he no objection even though the Graygor must ten thirty dollars for Bir whistle. But they Are nor fulfilled. The pretence making a history the county is All blathers Kite none Seipe. The Point is simply to wheedle a Hundred and fifty dollars out the countryman if possible. The next step the Silver tongued agent is to whisper to Absalom he like his and Nancy Annas pictures in this thrilling history the county in five cases out ten he would. It flatters him it docs him proud. Then he is charged for this great privilege any sum Money from $100 up according to his ability to . The ancestors the people who done to Are said nothing about in this veracious record though Hoy May have been those who made Tho Pioneer history the county. Anybody who pays from $100 to $500 can thus have a Ful Toiuo biographical sketch himself and Nancy Ajjon with portraits in this so called a history a though to May not have lived in the county five years though in fact he May be a Mere sewing machine Man passing through. What then when the Book is delivered and paid for. Does the subscriber get for his Monhoyt a Large Book printed coarse yellow paper oftentimes Aud very indifferent in its mechanical make up containing personal sketches and portraits people who paid them. Perhaps every time he opens the volume Tho first thing that greets him will be the ugly Mug his Bitler st enemy staring him in the face. As a history Tho thing is worse than useless and he has paid Twenty dollars for it. There Are not a dozen pages Pioneer history in it from beginning to end. Certainly there would be no objection to a Boot honestly made up sketches and por traits All who wanted such a thing and could afford to for it. A volume this sort 4 would be rather pleasant than otherwise to those immediately concerned. But what should be said those who Palm off this Rol me for a a history your county a yet the swindle �3 going continually ail Over the United states and somebody is getting Rich at it. In a few months time Tho More Rural counties Are frequently drained sums from $15,000 to $$0,-000 by this method. It is worse than the barbed wire Fence business. It is a pity too that such Humbug is practice. In the coming years which we All Hope win Only unfold More Aud More americans greatness nothing will be More interesting eagerly sought than narrative Western Pioneer ipe. Every scrap will be treasured As the Bost onese now treasure traditions and relics their old wifi trops and Wentworth. Poetry Romance tragedy thrilling adventure and valuable historical information enough to fill a Large volume mingle in the Story every county in our Western states. Is All this to be lost certainly every county in the Union ought to have its Early history written and preserved. There is Home Talent enough in Euch to write it and do it Well. Before those who remember something the old to mrs Are All dead 1 heir recollections their Pioneer anecdotes and traditions should be taken Down As they fall from their lips.

Last evening for the first time in Cincinnati was Given at pikes opera House the new opera there had been much written and As a consequence much read about this last Effort the French in Light and pleasing opera and the consequence was the Awakening such an amount curiosity in the theater going and music Loving Public that the House was filled with a fashionable and deeply interested audience. The Good House must have been an inspiration to the entire troupe for it is really remarkable when it is known that. Only last tuesday the Muslo and libretto were in their bands that the entire opera ran As smoothly As it did for although in the lost not the voice the prompter was heard upon the scenes still a utile that is always pardonable in a first performance and Theo the hesitation was in Tho dialogue and not in the rendering the music. Ler Tauly a Olivet Tel is a Success. Tho music is Bright Mirthful full pretty airs and original effects the crying song is really a Gem in its Way while Many the 6olos and much the music the chorus Are destined to be popular. Then the plot the opera is not Only Good but full quaint and curious situations Aud surprising changes. The costumes Are new pretty and becoming in Spray what More can one want in the Way the setting an opera when it is added that the scenery was in keeping and that the orchestra did its part conscientiously and Well to make the Assurance doubly sure that the opera was in every Way acceptable it is Only necessary to mention the artists who took the principal parts but perhaps a few words More As to tue plot the piece arc first in order Hirst All there Are two men who want to marry one pretty Young woman and two women in love with the same Mau. When it is stated that one these last is Rich and powerful and that the other has Only her wit to enable her to emerge from her difficulties the plot becomes More involved and interesting. Olivette a Young lady properly brought up in a French con vent returns to her Home to find tha her father has destined her in marriage to. An old lame Captain the Ancle a Young Man she has met in the Convent whom she has bestowed her heart and Faith. The Roussillon All powerful arrives the scene in company with the Duke Des ifs who desires to marry her and get himself out cent hut Dif dins him and in set Cret is already infatuated with tie Young officer Valentine who in turn is True to Olivette. He climbs the Balcony the mansion Olyette s father where at Tho time the countess is lodged Aud instead kissing Olivette kisses the countess. He is to be Cund envied to severe penalty and the Uncle hearing he is in love with tee woman he intends to marry rouses to intercede for him with the countess who however is inclined to Pardon when she learns the real culprit. Plunged in the difficulties that accumulate at every step Olivette advises her Lover to Perso uate his Zuncic ask the Pardon the Nephew Aud the hand Olivette Aud in that disguise obtain her in Maitia a. It is at this Point the real interest the opera commences. Of course it is supposed that the disguise and ruse Are to be successful but in just what manner is very difficult to foresee. The conspiracy tie ambitious Duke and the general Aud inevitable confusion arising from the plotting and counter plotting the two lame captains Tho real and assumed commander help to in Volvo and unravel the difficulties and to bring the different i manages at the close into the Lull po8sc88 rights and privileges. Firs in order Tor special mention is Stella Rose who As Olivette with her excellent voice piquant manners Aud charming Little accent rendered the coquettish Aid pretty Little heroine to the Delight the audience and received As she deserved several encores especially for the new and taking crying song. Emily Sondeno appeared to better advantage than Slie has yet done As the countess Roussillon and doing in finished style a Solo a a a have loved him hut too later a for which Sho received much applause and recognition. The costuming these two was noticeably Rich and novel. Or. E. Marshall a is Captain men Mac and . Campbell As Valen Tiue Sang the charming score entrusted to them in a liar mag manner. To Weir acting and costuming were quite As Good As their singing. All the rest though deserving More special mention can Oulu be summed up it this late hour As accept Able in Belr various parts and the whole performance counted a Success. The opera is to be repeated this afternoon and evening. Cantata Daniel by amateurs. Last night at Melodeon Hall the cantata a a Daniel was Given for the Benefit the coloured orphan Asylum. The Ball was literally packed with a very sympathetic Aud enthusiastic audience. It would Nave been an easy matter to have tilled a larger place and the cantata would have shown to better advantage a More commodious stage. It was throughout a creditable and enjoyable entertainment. The chorus was Well Tea inc and Sang with that melodious Quality voice for which the race is noted. Tho action also genuinely natural and it was Plain to see As much a h a tier feeling As training. The costuming was Complete throughout and the Long Robes and Armor were worn with quite As much Case and Grace As amateurs any kind Ert a show. As to those who took the Solo parts the voices were Well selected for the music Ana part to be rendered. Or. Ferguson Stine bans voice is too Well known to need More than a reference though the excellent Quality Aud training the Mezzo Soprano voice his wife Are not so Well known As they deserve to be. In to e first part the duet she Sang with . J m. Lewis the excellent Tenor was one the gems the evening.
