The Burlington Hawkeye has nearly a column article beaded "Capital Remov al!" which gives good and strong reasons for the removal of the capital from the banks of the Potomac to somft place near the center of the union, and says "the only real argument against removal is simply inertia. That is to say things are as they are because they are. That, of course,' is fatalistic, and is not really in telligent argument, but when taken fn connection with the pecuniary consider ations involved in the change, the enor mous expense of abandoning the present capital and erecting of public buildings elsewhere the fatalistic argument is on vantage ground and things are. likely to be, because they are."

THE DAILY ARGUS JOHN W- POTTER. 8ATCRDAT, JCJKB 22, 1889. Phohtbition received a terrible black eye at the bands of tbe people of Penn sylvania. The majority against it seems to be about 200.000. If cleanliness is next to godliness, baths should be considered a means of grace. It must be with pleasure, therefore, that religious people learn that a bathing de partment is to be added to the Wiscopsin public schools. It is said the talk that is occasionally heard at Washington regarding the speakership generally voices the opinion that McKinley and Reed are the two leading candidates. Congressman Wil liams, of Ohio, is quoted as saying that only these two men had a fighting chance. Preaching and practicing are vastly different. In 1885 tbe pout office at Can nelton, Ind., was presided over by Mrs. De La Hunt. Postmaster General Vilas removed her, and appointed a democrat. the office being fourtbclass. This re moval was made the text for a "power fill" speech delivered by Benjamin Har r...
