EVENING EXPRESS KINSLOK HKOTHJCRS - . PUBLISH EB8 CURRENT COMMENT. Get out the rati Republican vote and Republican victory is assured. It is your dury aa m citizen to vote sod all good citizens should vote for Joseph Grafius for Cily Treasurer. Dressmakers iu New York are in greater demand than male laborers. They get 13 a day where a man gets only |1 50. The Republican candidates for council in the Second, Third and Fourth Wards are all good citizens and deserve the hearty support of all Republican voters. Lock Hayek now has tba beat City Treasurer she ever had. It would be folly to displaoe him for sn untried one. Vote to retain Joseph Grafting in office for another term. The First Ward is making a gallant effort to elect the Republican candidate for Counoil, Mr. John A. Marshall. Be is highly respeoted by everybody and should command a big vote. Every Republican voter in the First Ward should see that UarahaU'a name ia on his ticket; The Retoblican osndidates for School Directors in the Four wards are men who have been closely allied with the school interests of this city for several years and their experience in such matters entitles them to election. It would be hard to find better Directors than A. J. Sohayler, S. Z. Martin, Geo. W. Webb, G. h. Mor-lock and G. T. Michaels. It is a singular historical fact that the one hundredth anniversary of the laying of the corner stone of the Executive Man sion, the official home of the Presidents of the great Republio of the American oonti nent, will fail upon the four hundredth anniversary of the discovery of the American continent by the Genoese navigator. The former ocourred October 12th, 1792, and the latter October 12th. 1492. Democrats say that Republicans will complain when a Democratic majority in Congress apply the rale laid down by Speaker Reed. Tbey one-lit not to. There is nothing morally -wrong m the majority ruling-when it is a majority. The rule of the majority is a, doctrAoa dear to Re-pablioans. The majority ought to rule. It ia their right. If they do not rule righteously or justly tbey will soon oease to be a majority. Maybe Ton Don't Know, That the word "idiot" originally meant only a private person, or one who was not engaged in publio business; then it came to be applied to an outsider, one who was ill-informed on and indifferent to State affairs: and lastly, to the most hopeless of all the mentally afflicted. That the word "villain" at first meant simply a villager. That the word "knave" in its origin signified a young man, and on the German court oards is merely the page or knight attending the king or queen. That the words "pagan" and "heathen" comes from words signifying a countryman, because it was in the rnrat districts that the worship of the ancient deities was longest continued. That the word "rivals" onoe meant neighbors who lived on the banks of a river. That the word "simpleton1' was originally applied to perBonB of honest oandor- straightforward and simple, as oppored to duplicity of character. That Chaucer and Wyoliffe used to write devoutly of "the silly babe of Bethlehem." That the word "brat," which is now a low word of contempt, was onoe used in aa&red verse-"Oh, Abraham's brats; oh, broode of blessed seede'." A RUSSIAN'S REVENGE.
