There has rarely been a warmer day In this latitude than this has been. Few people slept well last night, and no one appeared to be happy as each emerged from the tine residence or humble cottage to go through the monotonous duties of the day. Old people and young crept along the streets seeking the protection of any little ehade that came in sight, and the poor horses and mules that draw heavy burdens panted loudly for water, which they found not; and just here it may be remarked that there should be many points in the city at which the people and dumb brutes could get a drink of water. The thermometer to-day stopped ...

THE TRUTH. Wednesday Evening, July 13.1387. HE SAW LINCOLN KILLED. Death of an Actor Who Was On the Stage the Night of Booth's Crime. [Philadelphia Tress, 11th.] After having been confined to his bed for nearly four years, death came yesterday to George G. Spear, at the Edwin Forrest Home. On the stage of years ago Spear was a great favorite throughout the country. His parts were always in comedy and lie was a master in his art of making the audiencs that lie had to face roar with laughter. He was 77 years of age and was one of the first inmates of the home. Probably the most dramatic event in Spear's life was in being a witness to the tragedy in real life that was acted on the stage of Ford's Theatre in Washington, D. C., when President Lincoln fell a victim to Actor Booth's aim. "Our American Cousin" was being produced that night, and Spear was in the cast. During the season of 1542-3 Spear played to audiences in this city at the Walnut-street Theatre. Ilis name here was sufficien...

THE TRUTH. Wednesday Evening, July 13,1557. COSTLY UNDERGROUND HOMES. A Married Couple Preparing a Pair of Collins for Themselves. [Boston Ilerald.] A reporter ran across a curious item the other (lay which, while it may read like an Arabian Nights' tale, is known to be true in every respect by a dozen people within a short distance of Boston. A gentleman whose word is to be implicitly relied upon, and whoso statements have subsequently been confirmed by other investigations, said to the writer : " A year ago last April a firm of manufacturing undertakers in this vicinity were given the most extraordinary commission which they had ever received. They were told to make two mahogany caskets of a particular design, to be above the usual size, and in many parts fully six inches in thickness. They were cautioned not to say a word to any one about what t hey were doing, as their customer dreaded publicity in the matter. The caskets were made as ordered. It required $700 worth of mahogany ...

Is is possible that a city of such natural and almost incomparable advantages for business, for accumulating wealth, and for general enjoyment shall never have better water ? It is shameful that our people submit to such an outrage as is imposed upon them in the supply of water and the character of it. We appeal to the City Council for relief from the mud that is given us at high figures. Certainly something can and will be done. If a special meeting can be called to consider the interests and health of 130 prisoners in the city jail it would appear that a who...

THE TRUTH. Thursday Evening, July 14, 1887. ENTIBE POLICE FORCE HURT. Battle Royal Between the Cops and Tlieir Ex-Mayor. Philadelphia, Pa,, July 12.—1t required the entire police force ot Gloucester City, N. J., to arrest ex-Mayor George C. Wynkoop, of that place, last night. The ex-Mayor is a man of unusual strength and courage, and when the force aroused hino out of his bed and asked him to go to the police station on a charge of assault and battery, m ule by Mrs. Josephine Adams, late of tills city, now a saloon keeper at Gloucester Point, he came within an ace of whipping the entire body—four policemen. As it was, after a hard struggle the "force" tripped the ex-Mayor up, and it is said Officer Bernard Lyons, who had a personal grudge against the ex-Mayor, hammered him over the head with a blackjack, cutting his scalp in several places. On the other hand it is estimated that Gloucester City will have to foot a doctor's bill amounting to $34.28 for arnica, bandages, sticking plas...

THE TRUTH. - Thursday Evening, July 14, 1887. VIRGINIA NErtS. Code, Or No Code. TWO PAIRS, BUT YET NO GAME WON. A special from Lynchburg yesterday says: Humors were alloat in the city this evening of a duel to-day in Amherst county between Mr. John L. Lee, present Commonwealth's attorney of that county, and Colonel C. B. Christian, former incumbent of the office. Later advices state that the two gentlemen were arrested at Amherst Courthouse this afternoon on the charge of being about to engage in a duel. The examination before Justice John O. Loving di.-closed the fact that Colonel Christian bad sent a challenge, which Mr. Lee declined to acknowledge. Neither of the parties were bound over, botu promising to keep the peace, but Colonel Christian was sent on to the grand jury for sending the challenge. The difficulty grew out of a bitter personal canvass at the May election, in which Colonel Christian was defeated by Mr. Lee. A special from Norfolk yesterday says: To day, upon inform...

Viewed from a Democratic standpoint we are decidedly of the opinion that the speeches made at the Old Dominion Democratic Club last night were very imprudent. It is not expected, and entirely unnecessary, that leaders of any party should pronounce their own doom. Hon. George D. Wise assumed that theworkingmen had formed a coalition with the Republican party for the purpose of defeating the Democrats. We do not know of any such coalition as yet, and it was by no means positively certain that such a coalition would be made. Such an announcement at this stage of the game from a pr...

PEOPLE'S COLUMN. [This column is thrown open to the public lor brief correspondence. The management is in no wise responsible for what appears in it.l JOHN W. OTLET. Who is Mr. Otley ? is the question asked by the people of this city when they read in the daily papers a ludicrous account of a telegram alleged to have been sent to him by some man in Washington. The Washington man had his name suppressed. He di<] not want to be known in the circus. But " fools rush in madly where angels dare not tread," and Mr. Otley holds the bag. We want to distinctly state we did not know anything about this telegram until the matter was blurted out by Mr. Otley in the Council Chamber. And Mr. Otley's attack on the Reform Party was altogether unworthy of a man who consented to be one of its candidates one year ago, and was elected by their votes, and unless he had received the nomination of the Reformers he would have remained in obscurity forever. One thing is certain : The Democrats wi...

The law was so loosely framed that the parties it was intended to injure were really benefited, while all other persons are injured. Outside of the fact that the law is plainly unconstitutional its results will soon compel radical changes.—National Republican. This is said in reference to the interstate commerce law, and, if true, is probably the first instance in which a law of Congress lias worked backwards.

[New York Tribune.] A fat, disciple of prohibition, with a benevolent countenance, a double chin and a white high hat, halted on Saturday afternoon in front of a group of typical New York newsboys who were resting their bodies on the stone steps in front of a stcre in Park Row, and delighting their souls with a few choice brands of cigarette stubs which might have come from Uelmonico'a (once upon a time). Looking severely ov< r his gold-rimmed glasses, lie addressed a ragged urchin in the group: "Boy, I am sorry to see you forming this pernicious habit at so early an age." The infant thus addressed shifted his weed to the other side of his mouth, looked up with a sort of uneasy grin, and asked : "What 'er yer given us?" "Never use the filthy stuff. It will soon lead you to worse habits and will end you in a drunkard's grave," continued the owner of the whi...

J Mr. Editor :—Will you please iusi i t in > our paper this item of Dews which 1 send, as I think it will prove of interest to the people of your section. Mr. W. F. Wolverton, a young man from Virginia, nearSaumsviile, Shenandoah county, while engaged in herding sheep on Beaver creek, in Wyoming, was attacked by two large grizzly bears and a terrtflc conflict ensued.

New York, July 16.—Teresa Oelsen nine years old, of No. 306 East Thirty-sixth street, in the Yorkville Court, last Monday, accused Romeo de Primeo, a shoemaker, who hps his shop in the basement of the same house, of locking her in a room in the rear of his shop and assaulting her. The child was carried iuto the courtroom by two officers and sat in a chair in front of Justice Kilbreth while she related her story. She seemed so weak and sick that the keenest sympathies of ail present were aroused in her behalf. The prisoner denied the girl's story. He said that he did not lay a finger upon her. He was committed, in default of heavy bail, for trial. Teresa was carried out of the courtroom, placed in an ambulance and conveyed to St. Mary's Hospital. At the hospital she complained of the most excruciating pain and wept bitterly, but absolutely refused to allow...

The Truth. MONDAY EVENING JULY 18 Ail Example of Lincoln' b Eloquence. The Century latest Lincoln reaches the famous Lincoln-Douglas debates in the July number. We quote the following eloquent passage from Lincoln's Lewiston speech of August 17, 1858. This speech was made during the same canvass for ihe Senate but it was not one of the debate speeches: "The Declaration of Independence was tormed by the representatives of American Liberty fioui thirteen Slates of the Confederacy, twelve of which were -laveholdingcommunities. We need not discuss the way or the reason of their becoming slave-holding communities. It > s sufficient for our purpose that all of them greatly deplored the evil and that they placed a provision in the Constitution which they supposed would gradually remove the disease by cutting oft' its source. This was the abolition of the slave trade. So general was the conviction, the public determination, to abolish the African slave trade, that the provision w...
