The old subject of overptf&s&'ure in schools is being hotly debated in Eng lland.

XABSHAIX MOOIVUKE. J. O. WABNOOK. Proprietoi Bdltoi ONE of the amuting instances of ths uncertainty of a sure thing in politics is the result of the election to till HIM va­ cant) iu the Illinois legislature Caused by the death of icpreseutative Shaw. The district is democratic by over two thous­ and majority on a full party vote aud it now serins upon the face of the returns that the republicans have carried it by some three hundred majority in the elcc tun of a successor to the dead democratic representative. If the official count cor­ roborates the report the election of Hon. John A. Logan as his own successor will lie assured. It seems the republicans pursued a still huat policy and the mo cratic newspapers In the district did not wake up to the fact until the battle was lost. IF Prof Swing, the noted and learned divine of Chicago, is not misrepresented in his sentiments on the elective fran­ chise question he would hardly be a sue cessful missionary among the working men and po...

•H. VOI VII.-NO. 49. MARSHALL McCLUKE J. O. WABNOOK. Propnetoi Editor Tw) yeais ago the legislature of Mich igan enacted a law which provtd'd for trie probate of wills during Iho life of the testator. The supreme court of that sialo lias rcr.cnIIv rendered a decision in ii case arising under thai la in which they declare the law unconstitutional on the ground that the wife may by its op ei-Jtion be divested of her rights in property she has co-operated with her husband in accumulating without the right of being heard or of presenting facts to defeat it. THE Mandan 1'ioneer, which only a few weeks ago was a strenuous advocate of extending the elective franchise to women, now falls in with Prof. Swing's idea of restricting this franchise to a property qualification of #500. The Pio necr does not explain the intellectual virtue in the $500 worth of property that endows its possessor with more discretion in casting an intelligent and patriotic ballot than one who may not possess that am...
