The Tribdne hastens to assure Mr. Cheyne' that the republicans have "gall" enough to put up a ticket this fall and it will be a ticket that will commend itself to the voters of the county. The Tribune agrees, for once, with the Era that a fee of ten cents .should be charged for admission to the meetings of the city council. It is worth more than that sum to hear an opinion rendered by the city attorney or listen to the mayor when putting a motion before the council.

Ex-can di date Bryan's lamenta tion that "general prosperity has not yet appeared" does not seem to apply to himself since the news papers of the country are busying themselves with the announcement that he has grown so prosperous and luxurious in his habits that he wears silk and ruffled night-shirts, a habit which they seem to as sume is rather out ot the proprieties with a gentleman who had so recently posed as the real and only genuine friend of labor.
