Ann Arbor sbould be forced to wait for sewerage until the legislatura of 1893 aaeete. The matter has already been póstponed too long. There is no better time for making this improvement than the present. The Louisville Courier-Journal suggests several winning ( ?) tickets for 1892. Some of these are headed by Cleveland and others by Carlisle. It mattere not whom the Democrats may nomínate. The Republicans will win with Blaine and Gresham. There are now 550,000 persons upon the pension rolls of the United States, many of whom are Democrats. Will he opposition party, when the new songres? assembles, fly in the face of this very respectable and intelligent 3nay? It looks very probable, if one jays attention to the tirades against pensions which daily appear in Democratie papers. Secrktary Foster's success in refundiag the outstanaing 4J per cent. bonds at 2 per cent, has elicited nothing bnt_sneers from the Democrats. They do not seem to realize what the transaclion really means. If capitalists are willing to loan rnoney at ? per cent., it fallowsthat either inoney is plentifulor tie demand for it is slight. The latter s manifestly untrue. We must conelude.therefore, not only that the supply js good but also that the credit of the government is unimpaired. Calamity editors and free trade propagandista will ■please dry their tears. The Detroit Tribune of Sunday contains an editorial on the subject of temperance educatioc, the burden of which eëms rather unfavorable. It inclines, apparently, to the Jeffersonian theory of government, which would permit Jittle dictation on the part of the state as to what should be taught in the public schools. The mnjority of intelligent people, however, will detect the fallacy in the Tribune's reasoning. The effect of alconolic drinks upon the human systeni has been determineu with scientific accuracy. It is just as eertain as the effect of the moon upon the tides. The study of physiology and hygiëne lays down many salutary rules ior the regulation of the human body. Would it be wise to teach the great danger resulting from bad sanitation, nncleanliness and poisons, and at the same time make no mention of that which is si ill more perilous- alcoholic drink? Thit it is perilous every rightminded or intelligent man mu&t admi' - and even thedrunkard does not wish iis children to follow in his footsteps. The teaching of temperance in the poblie schools is too strongly intrenched in public opinión to be abolished at this time.
