If the democratic candidate for mayor is to be the embodiment of a platform the convention to night can not be too careful to nominate a Man whose per soil and Public record needs no defense. It is quite possible that the convention could do this from among the candidates whose names have been canvassed. Again we remark that the civil service system is not too Good to be looked at or talked about. And if or. Higgins who has had better opportunities of knowing the True inwardness of the system than most people thinks it is a failure and a fraud we know of no reason Why he should be promptly discharged for telling what he believes to be the truth. If it is the truth and if the civil service system is such a poor weak and sickly thing that it can t stand criticism and won t Bear inspection it is time that people should find it out. It seems that advantage is not always taken of the fast passages of Ocean steamships Between new York and Queenstown to hurry up the delivery of the mails. They have some absurd Rule that the mails must be taken on a particular train from Queenstown to Liverpool which Only leaves once in every 24 hours. And if the Steamer happens to arrive a few minutes after the hour for the departure of that train they Are left at Queenstown for 24 hours and do not reach Liverpool so quickly As if they had remained on Board the Steamer. Attention is being drawn to this matter on both sides of the Atlantic and the chances Are that the Absurdity of the procedure will speedily become apparent. It is the opinion of the Boston Herald that the congressmen of the South should be found Quot acting with the representatives of the Eastern and Middle states in securing the passage of a National bankruptcy Bill and in repealing the present Law regulating the coinage of it is particularly desirous that the sound and conservative men of the South Quot should join with the most enlightened sentiment of the to repudiate Quot the Loose and crude ideas Quot and Quot the ruinous theories Quot which prevail in the West. We really never knew what awful people we were out in this Western nor How far off we were from civilization and enlightenment until we found it All out from the Boston Herald. We Are thankful to be informed. Because overproduction has measurably ceased Confidence has been restored Money is plenty for All legitimate enterprises and the people Are no longer loaded with debt it is believed that this is just on the eve of a solid business revival. Such Are the grounds of hopefulness set Forth by the Philadelphia times. And alongside of its anticipation of brighter prospects the same paper expresses the Hope that As labor always feels the first blow of adversity so it May also enjoy the first fruits of the business revival. Quot surely Quot it says Quot capital and labor can be honest with each other and honest with themselves and if they act with honesty and Ordinary intelligence disputes will be arbitrated and satisfactorily adjusted and labor will join heartily with capital to Welcome and profit by the now irresistible and we believe permanent revival of words of Wisdom Are these which deserve to be read by every employer and every Workman in All parts of the Union. Two Hund bad trains run into Boston every sunday and All of them Are Well patronized every sunday. This is a fact to set Over against the reminiscence that in 1847 the sunday mail train on one of the Massachusetts roads was discontinued for Lack of patronage its last trip being made with not a single person aboard but the trainmen while As recently As 1861 sunday travel Between Boston and Salem was so Light that passenger coaches were abandoned. The change which has come Over the people of that Quot state of steady habits Quot is apparently without further illustration it becomes All the More striking however when it is found from reliable statistics that of 940,741 passengers who travelled on excursion steamers in Massachusetts in 1884, no less than 168,676, or about Twenty per cent chose sunday for their pleasure taking. And besides these the army of sunday workers in the same state was 115,778. The innovation of sunday traffic began we Are told with Quot milk trains which soon consisted of Many passenger cars and Are now run without carrying a single quart of milk. Quot Church Quot trains for suburban worshippers who desired to worship at popular City sanctuaries Are described As having. Had an important part in popularizing Massachusetts sunday trains. These increased on one railway from three to ten Between 1860 and 1870, and last year numbered Twenty. It is evident therefore no matter what our opinions or those of our readers May be on the subject of sunday pleasuring that the practice is every year becoming More common. It cannot truthfully be said that the patrons of sunday trains excursions and horse cars Are bad people. Neither can it be Laid entirely at the door of any foreign element that the customs of the Community have changed for Cam meetings and churches furnish a very Large number of the patrons of sunday trains and horse cars. Without following the matter further or drawing any conclusions we merely suggest that the surrounding circumstances and the new style of civilization which has come with Steih and electricity have changed the popular thoughts in regard to Sabbath observances. That much is beyond All controversy. He stood the test. Detroit free press. Four boys seated on a line Fence dividing two houses on John b. Street attracted the attention of a pedestrian yesterday and he halted and asked what they were looking at. Quot new family moving in there to Day Quot replied one. Quot Well what of it Quot Quot they be got a boy about As big As Quot Well what of that Quot Quot nothing Only we was trying at this moment the new boy appeared on the grass about 20 feet away. One of the boys on the Fence made up a face at him. He promptly responded. Then another boy threw a Stone St him. He hurled it Back. Quot say i la lick you Quot called the biggest boy. Quot you can t do it Quot the four boys made As if they would jump Over the Fence but the new boy stood firm. Quot ill dare you up Herel Quot Quot ill dare you Down Here Quot Quot he s All rights he s game Quot said the big boy to the pedestrian. Quot if he was a Coward we were going to lick him but now Well go Ovet and let him have a whiff on our Cigar no occasion for resentment. Elkhart Independent. So far As we can see or. Cleveland does As president exactly what he promised to do when he was nominated and exactly what his previous Conraot As governor showed that he would do. There is no occasion for any Surprise in this Case nor for any resentment. Democrats May not like the acts of president Cleveland but they certainly can not accuse him of any falseness or Quot of any broken pledges. If they chose to be mistaken in 1884, we can not see that they have sufficient reason for finding fault with or. Cleveland on that account. To night s delegates.

The Indiana state firemen s tournament to be held at Michigan City tuesday and wednesday september 29th and 30th, will undoubtedly be the most successful tournament Ever held in the West. Fifteen Hundred dollars in Cash and trophies including a Nickle plated Oil finished Hose cart Are offered by the management. The tournament is open to the world and the states of Indiana Michigan Ohio and Illinois will be largely represented Quot a Chubch quarrel. The remarkable circular which led to or. Watermeyer s libel suit. The libel suit which Fred Ostermeyer recently instituted against or. Denke Walter and wife appears to be the result of a curious quarrel among members of Trinity German evangelical lutheran Church of which Rev. Or. Seuel is the pastor. It has already been stated that the suit is based on a circular which was distributed among members of the Church and in which or. Ostermeyer is accused of knowingly renting houses for ill Fame purposes. This charge however together with charges of immoral conduct against other members of the congregation of which or. Ostermeyer is president forms Only the closing part of the circular the principal contents of the lengthy paper being a protest against Quot the unchristian conduct of pastor Seuel and a majority of his congregation and against the unchristian and partial conduct of some officers of the the circular is signed by mrs. Denke Walter the name of the doctor does not appear on the circular at All. It has caused quite a stir in the northeastern part of the City where most of the members of the congregation reside As it pretends to give the inside history of a very ugly quarrel among Mem Bers of one of the largest and wealthiest German congregations of the City. The trouble it is stated in the circular was caused by or. Denke Walter refusing to Send his children to the parochial schools his claim being that the school management was bad and the teachers inefficient the pastor not giving the schools the necessary attention. The congregation it is stated could not get rid of the teachers As had been promised and the doctor took his children from the schools. The matter came up in a meeting of the congregation which the circular states was a very Lively one or. Ostermeyer the president telling the doctor that he acted like a foolish by and the doctor responding that he was not As smart As or. Ostermeyer and that it would not be Good if All Perale were As smart As that gentleman. The circular states that this led to charges being preferred against the doctor for insulting the pastor and Ostermeyer when As alleged it was in fact the doctor who was first attacked and assaulted. The doctor was finally expelled from the Church and the circular charges that this was Only Mccoin polished by a collusion Between Bro. Seuel Bro. Schmid and some members of the Synod and by or. Seuel giving false testimony. A member who protested against the doctor s expulsion shared his Fate. The circular also charges that in a suit brought by the doctor against pastor Senel to collect a Bill for professional services the court was info fenced by members of the congregation to Render judgment for the defendant. As evidence of an unchristian spirit prevailing in the congregation the circular quotes an item from one of the morning papers giving an account of a progressive euchre party at the House of one of the members of the congregation. The language of the circular is very bitter and pointed throughout and gives evidence of the very bad deling which seems to exist among the members of Trinity congregation. Personal and social.

Some one has been telling tales out of the wig makers school. Quot Good wigs of White hair Quot says the gossiping person Quot Cost about $40 each but the material of which these wigs Are made is clipped from the festive Goat and never from the human head.

London truth. A Large amount of very valuable plate was sent to Osborne from Windsor Castle for the Royal wedding. The necessity of bringing everything from London or Windsor was one of the most tiresome and expensive matters connected with the affair but As to the plate the lord Steward ought not to have allowed it to be taken to Osborne where there could be no adequate arrangements for its Safe keeping it is said that plate to the value 01 �50,000 was temporarily removed from Windsor. The plate there is Worth in round figures nearly two millions and it is All Crown property which Means practically that it belongs to the nation if a single spoon were lost it would have to be replaced by the Queen.

Pictures Are often tray is a rred but hitherto the Crown a the has Al it the third annual reunion of the seventy a ways been kept at Windsor. When there on Hundred and first Indian a state banquet at the Castle the plate on the tables is usually Worth at least �250,000, and considering the superhuman cleverness of thieves in these Days it May be hoped there will be no More such slovenly arrangements As characterized the recent wedding.
