The friends ol ex-Governor Isaac P. Gray, of Indiana, now announoo tbat he is a candidate for the Democratic nomination for President. He would like the tioketto be Gray and Hill; if not that, then Hill and Gray. Speaker Keed is giving the Democrats more trouble than any other member of the House hae done in a half century. They dread him more than they do origin-al sin. They don't know in what shape he will turn up next. The only thing they are certain about is that be is a usurper, a tyrant, and a dictator. All the resources of the law having been exhausted to save tbe murderer Kem-meier from the fate which he so riohly de-setves, be has once more been sentenced to die by electricity during the week com menciug August 4'h. A good many plans were resorted to to stave off this catastrophe, but one by one they were ruled out by the courts until tbe point has beeu reached when further delay seems nn likely. General Adau E Kiso, of Baltimore, who is to go to Paria as Consul General, has been an applicant for the place since the inauguration of the present Administration. He belongs to the old families of Maryland, has a large stock farm near Baltimore, is a lawyer by profession, but a natural born orator and politician. He mads his mart as a campaign speaker both in 1884 and 1B88. and the thousands of persons be addressed in those campaigns will be glad he has been giveu the appointment. SThe lottery question in North Dakota is causing some contention among the Republicans in that State. It is understood that there is a project on foot for chartering a company at tbe next session of the Legislature, and its supporters are endeavoring to commit the Republican State Convention to the scheme. There ought to be no doubt about the fate of suoh a movement. The Republican party will k~ ,_r,.._.l ----�......- -----, and it ought to do so unanimously. Mil. Cleveland professes to feci very much aggrieved because people out in Indiana doubted bis sincerity in writing a letter expressing bis deep regret at not being able to attend the dedication of the Hendricks monument. Tbe ex President ought now to read an interview with the widow of Thomas A. Hendricks, in which she intimates tbat ber husband's death was hastened by tbe mortification and embarrassment which be suffered as Vice President from those who, when they got high office, forgot hlB exertion9 and sacrifices in their behalf. It is evident that Mrs. Hendricks bas some very decided opinions about Mr. Cleveland's sincerity. The discovery by the eminent toxicolo-gist. Professor Vaughn, of the University of Michigan, that the causeB of cholera in-fantum and typhoid fever, resembling each other olosely, are as deadly as the venom of a rattlesnake, will increase the dread of those maladies. A quantity of the poison the size of a pea, obtained from the germs of the disease in victims' intestines, killed a guinea pig in twelve hours. But one twentieth of a grain was found to be fatal. The discovery of the character of the poison, which is the nature of a feiment, will aid in the effort to discover an antidote, which Dr. Vaughn is now en-'gaged in. Heretofore the character of tbe poison was uuknown. Chemistry will doubtless furnish a remedy. K.ud rntlnl. Tbe Farmer's band, of Rote, will hold a festival at Kote on the evening of July 19.

Tho question assigned at the last meeting for discussion yesterday was abortion atd the discussion was opened by Drs. Tibbens and Watson. The discussion was participated in by all, including Dr. B.

The Bow street mob toro down railings, shutters, boardings, etc., and used tbem as missiles. Several persons were injured by being hit with stones, and three were taken to tbe hospital. Tbe people who attended the opera were greatly alarmed on account of tbe disorders in the streets, but they were able to disperse without meeting with any interference worse than the obstruction caused by the great crowd outside of the Opera House. Two members of the police force who were taken into custody for assaulting superior officers yesterday have each been sentenced to fourteen days* imprisonment. Tho men are weakening. Tbey have no organization, and it is not likely that they will attempt to enforce their demands by a general strike. It is probable, however, that further isolated disturbances may occur. The constables who were dismissed from the force for their connection with tho present troubles are petitioning tbe authorities for reinstatement. At 10 o'clock tbe police cleared and occupied tbe towers about Bow street, arresting sixteon persons. The mob made furious attempts to rescue the prisoners and four constables were badly injured with missiles. It is estimated that 800 constables were on duty in this vicinity, but the majority were withdrawn after midnight, when the excitement subsided. TWO DOLLARS A I�AT. Preparing r'�r *j'���P.

WashYxg^on^�^ Wade, from the Committee on Labor, today reported favorably a bill declaring that no person employed as a laborer on Government work shall receive less than 2 a day. In a report tbe committee states that it appears that the wages now being paid by tbe Government to its laborers is only $1.25 a day, and, in many instances many laborers are permitted to work only on half time, making their total pay only $15 a month. The committee believes that fair wages should be paid to laborers in the Government employ, and, therefore, thinks that tho minimum of $2 a day as proposed by tbe bill is only reasonable and ust, and for this reason recommends tbe passage of the bill.
