locate Geronimo and hia band upon
the Cherokee reservation in the
western part of this State,whereupon
the neighboring counties are raising
objections at a lively rate, They

When Sheriff Flacker, of New
York city, taused proceedings for
divorce to be instituted in the name
of hii wife, without her knowledge
of it, and while the suit was pending
and before it was granted took unto
himself another wife, it was too
much for even Gotham. Such a
storm of indignation was raised that
the sheriff had to resign and retire
from the reach of the public for
If all duels would result as the
one recently fought on Alabama soil
by two distinguished gentlemen of
Georgia, Messrs. Calhoun (a grand
ton of John C.) and Williamson,
there would be no harm in them and
a good deal of show. After fire
shots by one and one from the other,
neither was hurt, both retracted the
insulting words and declared friend
ship. They should be prosecuted,
but as the Governor of Alabama can
find, no citizen of that State who
witnessed the duel it is not probable
that any action will be taken.
GOVERNOR FOWLE-S TACT.
The people and press of North
Carolina have never ceased since the
Board of Directors of the Insane
Asylum declared Dr. Grissom inno
cent of the various grave charges
against him to express their unquali
fied disapprobation of that verdict,
and to demand in settlement of this
vexed question the resignation of
Dr. Grissom. It seems that at last
the wish of the people is to be grati
fied, though in a rather unexpected
way. The more rash of the anti
Grissom men were disposed to resort
to rash measures to remove the ob
noxious officer, some of them even
demanding that the Governor call
an extra session of the Legislature
to accomplish that end. The Gov
ernor in the meantime has taken
things quietly, and has even been
accused of being a sympathizer with
Dr. Grissom. But while seemingly
quiet he was devoting earnest thought
to the situation, and the outcome of
it is that the demands of the people
are to be acceded to and the Doctor
is to be removed without the use of
any revolutionary measures.
Some years ago the Legislature
authorised the Governor to constitute
a Board of Public Charities, to have
general supervision of the charitable
institutions of the State. For some
reason this was not done until Gov
errior Fowle saw that it would be
useful at this time and give him an
excellent opportunity to remove some
of the asylum directors by giving
them positions on this board. Dr.
Haywood was offered the chairman
hip of the new board and accepted
it, resigning his place as chairman
of the asylum directors. One or
two more directors were offered posi
tions on this board, all of whom re
signed as directors. One or two were
asked for their resignations on the
ground that they were holding other
positions which conflicted with their
positions as directors, the constitu
tion forbidding them to hold two
positions at the hand of the State.
In this way were obtained the resig
nations of Messrs. Capehart, Hough
ton, Jackson and Capt Harris, and
their places being filled by gentlemen
who favored the views of the majority
of thejpeople. The Board of Direc
tors, as now constituted, contains six
anti-Grissom men and three Grissom
men. This looks like Grissom must
go, and to Gov. Fowle's neat and
tkillfnl management is due the
There is perhaps one view of the
case that will strike some in an un
favorable light, and that is the idea
that the Governor nsed his powers
to pack, as it were, the board with
men who agreed with his views of
the matter. This does not look right,
and ordinarily would be an abuse of
power. But in this case the Gover
nor is sustained and applauded by
Ills people, for it is clear that he has
t heart the best interests of one of
our noblest and best institutions, and
the result to be attained is that so
earnestly desired by an intelligent
people, the consensus of whom is
very seldom mistaken.
Dr. Grissom displayed poor judg
ment and bad taste in not resigning
after his acquittal. He should have
been satisfied with whatever exonera
tion there might have been iu that
verdict, and not gloat over his vic
tory, writing to the directors indi
vidually, as he did, that he would
under no circumstances resign. The
demands of a people are not to be
Grissom must go; and, when he
does, all honor to our chief !
THE ELIXIR OF LIFE.
New features are developing iu the
Elixir of Life craze. It is about to
prove, in some cases, an " Elixir of
Death" instead. Some cases upon
whom the experiments have been
tried have been made violently ill,
and vow many suits for damages
should they recover. Some quacks
in charge of almshouses, etc., with
undue haste, have tried it indiscrim
inately, as it is thought, with fatal
results. One old gentleman upon
whom it wa3 tried seemed wonder
fully improved, and when the physi
cians substituted for the mixture
another perfectly harmless the im
provement continued as before, show
ing that what improvement was no
ticed was due to the imagination and
faith of the patient.
This was too good to be true. But
after all, if it were true, it had its
unfavorable phases which make it
seem not so desirable at last Sup
pose youth could be made perpetual,
what would become of those impor
tant factors of civilization and pro
gress, the old maids and bachelors ?
They would become in the process of
time practically extinct, and with
them would pass away a good part
of the wisdom of the world.
Frequently there are found people
who while not rich in the abundance
of this world's goods have great ex
pectancies some rich old uncle or
aunt who at death is to leave them
great wealth. These people, who
have lived upon their expectancies
and anticipations so long, would
have to give them up and go to
work if this old aunt or uncle should
get hold of some of the elixir.
As it is made of the distilled es
sence of lamb it might possibly de
velop in the patients an inordinate
desire for "sheep," a propensity
which is 6aid to be already largely
predominant in the average darkie as
he is now constituted. Under this
treatment it might get the better of
bis judgment and cause him serious
trouble. This is quite possible. It
is said of one for whose stomach
there had been substituted that of a
sheep that upon being asked how he
felt he replied : " I fell quite well,
but have a powerful hankering after
So in view of these and other dis
advantages that mignt be named we
would better ask our scientists to
cease their efforts in this direction
lest they might accidentally discover
an Elixir of Life.

VARIOUS ITEMS OF INTEREST FROM

Washington, August 20.
President Harrison flitted into
town Friday and out again Satur
day afternoon. The, horde of pop-
hunters scented the game from afar
and made a charge on the White
House. There was weeping and
gnashing of teeth when the hungry
crowd was informed that the Presi
dent could not be seen, and the
agony was piled on when they dis
covered that this was probably the
last time President Harrison would
come to "Washington before October.

and Private Secretary Halford were
starting for Deer Park in the private

The President and wife go to In
dianapolis this week for the first time
since the head of the house became
our chief magistrate. I don't know
how the old man is feeling about the
trip, but it is no violation of confi
dence to say that Mrs. Harrison is
delighted, and she would be still
more delighted if she was returning
to stay, for she has never ceased to
be home-sick and to pine for her
quiet home in Indianapolis.
The commission appointed to
negotiate for the purchase of the
Cherokee strip in Indian Territory

I am informed by one who I
think knows that the extra session
of Congress will be called for Octo
ber 21 or 22. It is likely to be a
memorable session. Already the
prophecy lias been made by a well
known Democrat that if the Republi
cans of The House attempt to change
the rules so they can admit all the
contestants belonging to their party
it will cause a continuous session to
the 4th of March, US'Jl, when the
Fifty-first Congress expires by limi
tation. That is probably an extreme
view, but all the signs indicate a
very bitter political wrangle over
the rules of the House.
Commissioner Tanner reiterates
that the personal relations between
himself and Secretary Noble are
the pleasantest He admits that
there are official differences. It
would be useless to deny it when
hardly a day passes that the Seci-e-tary
does not in some manner over
rule or change some decision of the
Commissioner. Just previous to
the first of July Mr. Tanner decided
that pension agents might make
needed increases in their clerical
force in excess of the money appro
priated for that purpose, and that he
would ask Congress for an appro
priation covering the deficiency. As
soon as the Secretary's attention
was called to this he notified the
pension agents that their clerical
forces must be reduced to corre
spond to the appropriation by Con
gress and that he did not consider
it lawful to make a deficiency by
employing additional clerks. The
next move by the Secretary that
seems to rellect upon both the Com
missioner of Pensions and the Com
mission now engaged in investiga
ting the re-rating of pensions was
to order all the evidences in the
re-rating of Senator Mandersons pen
sion brought to his office Avhen he
could make a personal examination
of it. It seems very certain that
unless the official relations of these
two men are soon changed that one
or the other will have to retire to
private life. As it is now their
opinions are too wide apart ror any
thing approaching harmony.
If the Democrats throughout the
State are as enthusiastic over the
ticket renominated at Richmond
last week as are the Virginia Demo
crats who frequent Washington, a
victory is certain this fall.
Big Tom Reed is booming for the
Speakership of the House, and if it

members had the selection for a Re
publican for Speaker I think Mc
Kinley, of Ohio, would be the man.
He is a staunch Republican but is
extremely liberal and fair minded.
So much can hardly be said for Reed
without seriously stretching the

ury. At the time it was stated that
he declared he had been tendered a

but according to the story now told
he declined because he was request
ed to by President Harrison, and the
reason he was asked was the discovery
that the Government was now suino-
him for money claimed to be due
from him when he was removed by
Mr. Cleveland from the postmaster
ship at New Albanv, Indiana. '
