The great firc in (jueuec, noted in the last Col kier, destroyed 637 builüinn and eaawd i lomwt upwards of $1,000,000, with but little nsurance. It has caused inueh Mill'i-ring. Next Sunday is the day of Joom, according to the figuring of astrologers. But a the event occurs so early In the morning, at aboat To'dock, or a little at'ter, m"si eveiybody WÜ1 be in tcd aml will know notliing of the terrible event. Well, tlie legislature didn't act upon our sujrgestion, and the jail binls and trampwho are too lazy to work wlll be fed at public expense, a usual. The people treat tlmt elass with greater considerattou than they do the Uborinj: man. That one may jndge of the labor being put upon the electric light, it is only necessary to give the patent office statistics. Than liuve already been graated 175 patents, 350 are now pending, and more are coming every day. Scientists are diving right into the subject. Not only has American horse flesh triiimplii'd over that of England in winning the Derby, but later advices assert that in K ranee a hor9e owned by Keene, the great stock gambler, has won ia the great French race, corresponding to the English Iterby. Wi-11. now we slwuld be happy. It we üll up all our lands with foreignera, just for the sake of bragging over other state about the number of inhabitants, wliat will our cliildren do wlio are OODllng n to the stage? Wootd it not be as wise to kef i a little of our domain for our own ofl'spring as to give it all to straugers from a foreigu land? Lee Chin, the Wyoming T. Chinauian, referred to last week as being prosecuted for marrying a white woman, has had the marriage declared legal. And now, poor fellow, be li;i bees entreoí tod by Ma countrymen, who thiuk he has disgraced himself. "Tb way of the transgressor is hard," as has been previously remarked. It is glVM ut that the boy revivalist, Rev.(?)Thos.IlarrÍ8on,conveited in Indianapol8, 1,013 persons. He is certainly a remarkalile youth to have sueli U influenee for the good over bis fellow men, but it nm-t lie rememfoered that IndUsapoUt is I ltaitiil wicked city. It is the home of English. Vou Uiive heard of liim, haven'! pouf They "come Knglish" on the balls in playing billiards sometimes. The cyclones have cominenced active operations out west mi the prairies. Last Sunday one at Osage City, Kansas destroyed $100,000 worth of property, including .")0 houses. killed three persons and injured forty. Another on tbc uoh atay, at Kinj; City, Mo., created a fearful havoc, followed by another an hour later; the two destroying about $150,000 worth of property, killin;r 16 people, and woundiiig inany inore. Tlie track ot enen -n-a-! tiftnnï onc-Tönrth of a mile wule. (iiiat shade of departed jostiuasters, eousuls, and othcr officials! An Obio man has been found who don't want an office any more ! He says he's too oíd. Ele's a democrat. His name is ïïm. (í. Thnrinan. He is now in Paris, holding office by appointmentof thejinsident.dii ihe nmnetary coinraission. The rumor having reached him overthT(i that the demócrata proposeil to put him on the ticket to lead their forlorn hope against Gov. Foster, in the coming Ohio state election, that's the word be sends back to his son. Let it be recorded. But little progress bas been made in the senatorial contest in New York. The friends of Senators Conkling and Platt still hold their own, while the opposition do not yet combine upon any one. One Bradley gave the sum of $2,000 to Speaker Sharpe a few days since, nssertiiifr tliat it was money given him by Senator Sessions, upon his proinising to vote for Chaunccy M. De]ew. Thi.i eliarge of liribery is !)eing- investigated, but the only thing bronght out so far, is the fact that neither Uradley nor Sessions have records any too good. The Detroit Post and Tribune has purchased a new Scott-Webb printing and prefecting ]ress, similar to the one recently put in by the Evening News, capable ol prtottnf, ijasting, folding and delivering 30,000 papers in one hour. These machines are truly wonderful, and are so compact that they take but little space. In celebration of the event the Post and Tribune appearcd last Sunday with a mammoth edition of 32 pages. The change in presses necessitated a change in form, so that the paper now appearg in quarto form, with eight pages instead of four, there being seven columns to a page instead of ten as heretofore. As it will be pasted and cut it is certainiy preteraoie to tne om largc page folio. The "iron-clad" liquor bill, which passed the legislature duiinjj its last days, is one of the most stringent laws ever enacted by the Michigan legislature. In fact, it is so stringent that it is a question in the minds of soine whether it will not be consumed by it own fierceness, and become a de'id letter; though t is hoped not. The act is cal led "the liquor pólice bill," aud its provlsions "make il unlawful to sell or give liquors to drunkards, or to any one whose husband, wife, parent, chlld or guardián shall forbid it. Billiards, pool or cards are not to be played in a room where liquors are sold, or in any adjoining room in the same building. No liquors to bc sold in theatres or concert halls, or rooms opening into the same. Saloons must be closed Sundays, both front and back door; on election days and legal holidays. It shall not be necessary to prove that liquors are sold at these times. Anybody who by false pretenses gets liquors, or who gets drunk and is found in such condition, almdst anywhere, shall be flned $10 aud costs, or be imprisoned for from 10 to 20 days, or both by line and imprisonment." So those who are in the habit of indulging in the cup until it intoxicates, had better keep their eyes wide open. This law effects them quite as niiieh as it does the liquor seller. It won't do be caught "out with the boys," and each one must remember the sign "look out for the cops."
