Custer reports that there will bo 5,000 hostile Indians ou tUo war-path this summer about the Upper Missouri. Judges Williams, Booth, Rogers, Tree, and Favwoll, of the Circuit Court of Oook County, buuuuuvu iLouiuuivoa as caudidatos for ro-oloo tiou. The motion to dismiss tho suits against the Republic Fire Insurance Company of this city, on trial at Dos Moinos, has been denied by tho United States Court. Penitentiary Commissioner Wham, who was summarily removed a year ago from tho Rod Cloud Indian Agency, has been offered tho posi tion of Indian Inspector, but has declined it ou account of his now duties. Tho epizootic turns out to bo an hereditary disease iu lowa. Colts in Plymouth County, as soon as they aro foaled, show all tho symptoms of tho horso-dlscaso which attacked their pro genitors last year, and are dying in largo num bers ; sixty deaths are reported iu ono township. Two candidates woro nominated at Effingham yesterday for Supreme Court Judge in iho Sec ond District. Tbo Hon. John Soholfiold was nominated by tbo Farmers’ Convention in regu lar session; Mr. Kingsbury, of Montgomery, was nominated later in tbo day by a mooting of those dissatisfied with tho first choice. Tho Eicknpoo Indians of Texas, who have been stealing cattle and committing other depre dations, have boon attacked by Col. Mackenzie and badly whipped. Nineteen Indian wore killed, two wounded, a Chief and forty-one women and children captured, two villages destroyed, and several hundred horses recovered.. Our loss was three wounded. Tho saloon-keepers of this city met last night aud resolved to keep their saloons open next Sunday. By acting in concert they expect to overwhelm Iho city authorities, who caunot, ac cording to their calculation, arrest nil tho liquor sellers at once. Auti-tomporauco meetings were held last night by tho Germans of tbo Ninth and Sixteenth Wards, and wore very largo and en thusiastic. A recent dispatch announced the death of Alexander John Couza. X’tUice Couza was the fust Prince of the United Provinces of Moldavia and Waliaclua, and was elected in X 859 and com pelled to abdicate in 18CC. Uis place is now filled by Prince Charles of Roumnuia, of the Im perial family of llohouzollcrn. 'When elected Hospadar of Moldavia ho was about 38 years of ago. Ho had also boon ou several occasions Pre fect of Galatz. The Roumanian revolution, which accomplished his abdication, was a blood less ono. Judge Daly, of Now York, who is President of tho Geographical Society aud well versed iu tho subject of Arctic explorations, places little or no reliance in tho stories of Esquimaux Joe aud his friend Hans os to tho death of Capt. Hall end tho conduct of Sailing-Master Budding ton. The Esquimaux, ho says, do not know what it is to toll the' truth. His opinion of Capt. Hall is not much more flat tering. Ho is pronounced incompetent to load tho expedition entrusted to him, and to havo been actuated not by a generous scientific zeal, but by a personal vanity. What he wanted was not so much that the North Polo should bo reached, ay that it should ho reached hy him. Lieut, Grinnoll. tho sou of Henry GrinnoU who furnished Capt. Hall with funds for bis explora tions, is not so harsh iuhiu judgment. Ho thinks Capt. Hall lacked only tho ability to control his subordinates. Civil-Sorvico Reform has received its latent il lustration in the appointment of one Henderson an Agent of the Chippewa Indiana of Wisconsin. Henderson's latest abode was at Fayetteville, Ark. A dispatch sent to the editor ot Ibo Fay etteville AVics, by somebody In Wisconsin in quiring after bis pedigree, brought back tbo In formation in the columns of tbo News that tbo now Indian Agent came to Fayette ville as a refugoo from justice for the crime of forgery committed in Zanesville, 0. His career in Fayetteville, says the JVVim, was “ a record of low swindles, and, after making dishonorable proposals to a lady teacher who applied to him while Superintendent of Eduoa tiou for a certificate, ho was dismissed from tbo office in disgrace, and clandestinely absconded, leaving his creditors to mourn." The question ■whether it was necessary to go so far to find an Indian Agent—whether as big a scoundrel could not have boon secured in Wisconsin under the Civil-Service rules—is agitating somo of the dis loyal papers of Wisconsin. Where Capt. Jack is, or how largo a force Is rlott him after tho desertion of the Cottonwood Dlodocs, is not certain, hut at the seat of war it is iiolloved that ho has about twenty warriors loft, •with whom ho is hurrying toward the Pitt River Indians. Tbeao dp not include his best fighters. Slmck-Naaty Jim, ,Rogus Charley, ftfld several other of hla most desperate followers led the malcontent bucko, squaws, and children, 03 In all, who gave themselves up yesterday. Boston Charley and many other bravos are dead. This surrender loaves him very weak, but, at the same time, frees him from the care of fifty helpless squaws and chil dren. The Pitt lUvor Indians, with whom it is now beyond doubt ho bos of late been Inconstant communication, are a very powerful tribe, and wore lately slated to number 7,000 armed warri ors. This estimate must bo an exaggeration, but there are enough to work more mischief than the Modoca have done, if Cnpt. Jack In duces them to tako tho war-path with him. The Chicago produce markets wore generally quiet and lower yesterday. Hess pork was rather more quiet, ami declined 250 per brl, closing at $15.50 cash, and $16.85(35)15.00 sollor July. Lard was dull and 10c per 100 lbs lower, at SB.IO cash and $8.C5@8.70 seller July.- Heals wore quiet and per lb lower, for shoulders, for short ribs, 8)£®8%o for short clear, and 10@lljjfo for sweet pickled hams. Lake freights wore dull and firm at 6%@60 for corn to' Buffalo. Highwinos wore moro active and %o higher, closing nt per gallon. Flour was quiet and un changed. Wheat was quiet and l@l>£c lower, closing firm at $1.20 cash and seller Juno. Corn was loss active, and lower, closing firm at 830 asked for cash and 38%0 seller Juno. Oats wore ralhor moro active, and lower, closing at 81%0 cash and 81% c seller Juno. Rye was inactive and nominally un changed, nt GOo bid and 700 asked. Barley was dull and norainally slcndy at 70@80o for poor to good No. 2. Hogs wore moro active and a shade Armor,‘with sales at $4.60(3)4.00. Cattle opened active and firm, but closed easier. Sheep were quiet. . .. Wo have received n letter from Oqnawka, 111., informing us that Mr. A. M. Craig has boon em ployed in only two instances as an attorney of the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad. Tho writer desires us to publish tho statement as an net of justice to Hr. Craig. Wo can do hotter justice to Mr. Craig without doing vio lence to tho truth. Referring to somo late vol umes of Illinois Reports, wo llnd Mr. Craig re corded as attorney for tho 0., B. & Q. R. R. in tho following-named cases; 0., B. 4: Q. B. B. Co.' Tbo ftciSW, &c. ( ’ 81 ni *» m ' of Knox CoUoco. 0., B. 4: Q. K. B,' 62 HI., 200. Dumi, 0., D. & Q. R. R. 62 111., 453. Dquh. Hero aro threo cases in tho Supremo Court, alone. As much of the litigation of railroads takes placo in tho inferior courts, and as Mr. Craig ia not ono of tho heavy-weights at tho Bar who aro constantly having cases in the Supremo Court, tho presumption ia that most of his prac iico as a railroad attorney has bcou in tho lower courts, and that tho number of bis cases ns such attorney has considerably exceeded those above noted. Tbo fact that Mr. Craig is, or ban boon, a railroad attorney, does not disqualify him from serving as Judge of tho Supremo Court, but it does disqualify him from naming as tho auti-railroad candidate, for in tho latter character bo ia a fraud. But if ho is not tho anti-railroad candidate, then certainly somebody is cheated. Tho people of Minnesota are not to know, by public exposition of tho facts, how tholt State Treasury has boon run these many years, for tho personal aggrandizement of a ring of party managers,—bow pine lands,, and lumber-mills, and dry-goods, and newspaper stock, and bank ing enterprises, and politics as a trade, and all sorts of things, bavo been floated in private hands upon iho money of tho people. They know that at one time more than $500,000, the product of their taxation, was thus in private use, unsecured and without interest; that an actual deficit of more than $200,000 was carried over from State Treasurer Munch to Stato Treasurer Soogor (Munch’s father-in-law), and that, when exposure could no longer bo delayed, tho powor of tbo State administration and tho influences of party-leaders was combined upon ono doapdrato purpose to defeat' tho ends of justice u fur tho sake of tho party.” Thus, when tho exposure camo, the Legislature attempted to smother It; when this would not bo ondured, and tbo Bonaio was ordered to try tho whole case, Soogor resigned; and when tho Sonato mot, May 20, and had passed through a well-arranged system of sub terfuges and technicalities, and was apparently about to outer upon a genuine investigation, Soegor pleaded guilty, and tho impeach ment has resulted only in .his expulsion from office. So tho names of tho party managers and newspaper proprietors and office holders who had tho money aro not disclosed. There is an election, this year, of Governor, Stato Treasurer, and Legislature, in and for Minnesota, without reference to any other Stato in the Union; and iu tbo result of that election will bo soon whether tho pooplo of Minnesota aro blinded to homo interests by tho hue-and-cry of a national party organization. THE FARMERS’ MOVEMENT AND THE OLE PAETIES. The State of Illinois has to elect next month some twenty-eight Judges In as many districts for the Circuit Courts of the State. Iu two of tho grand divisions of (ho State tlioro are Judges of tho Supremo Court to bo oleotod. In several counties there aro County Judges to bo elected to fill vacancies. The entire Circuit Bauch La to bo refilled by election. A partisan Legislature labored for months to arrange these circuits, In order to secure tho greatest possible number of Judges of tho tmo political faith. Nearly every Judge now on tho Bench in Illinois was selected by a nominating convention, and elected because of his party polities, Yet in all Illinois there has boon only four Republican conventions bold to uominato candidates for Circuit Judge, and one of these, failing to agroo, adjourned without making a nomination. There has not boon courage enough in tho two parties to cab n convention to nominate a Republican candidate for Supremo Judge In a Republican district, oraEoraooratie Judge In a Democratic district. 'X’ho Republican party in Illinois has practically laid down its organization; it has abandoned that watchful cave it onco exorcised over tho Dench, ami has left the gates wide open for Dem ocrats, Independents, Copperhead*, Liberals, Grangers, and all other discontented classes, to elect tho thirty-odd Judges on tho first Monday qf Juno. When a party dare not nominate can didates for ofiloo, and permits the election to go by default, the fact is a confession of prostration and weakness, amounting to abdication. It may bo said that tho farmers of tho State have taken into their hands the nomination and election of judicial officers, and that the Republican THE CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE: SATURDAY, MAY 24, I*7'.}. parly does not fool disposed to got Into a conflict with tho Oranges, in which conflict It would cer tainly come out second best. But If that Is an answer, how will it bo next fall, when comity ofllcora are to bo elected ? Is it likely that one victory of tho Oranges will oppenso their appe tites? Having elected a Judge this summer, will they not want a County Treasurer next tall, and a Congressman uext.yoar? Tho party that rejects Olvll-Sorvico Beform because that might cause a Democrat to bo appointed ovor a loss competent Bopublloan, davo not; It seems, nom inate oven a County Judge to settle up tho estates of dead men In a Slate whore it lately bad CO,OOO majority. Tho farmers* movement has paralyzed tho Bopnbllcan party in Illinois, and tho paralysis promises to endure for some time. Tho move ment is only in its infancy. Its interference in the election of Judges is not by any moans thorough. In many counties, the organization is incomplete, and It was no park of tho pro gramme tn tho Aral instance to interfere with tho courts. Farmers’ nominations of candidates for Judges are but an incident; tho organization has further and more dostinotlvo work boforo it. In November next, there la to bo elected in every county in this Slate a corps of comity ofllcora, including Treasurers, County Clerks, Surveyors, etc., which have heretofore boon re garded as the exclusive spoils of party managers. Tho farmers’ organizations will probably nomi nate their own men, ami elect them to all those places, except in tho larger cities. A year later, In 1874, they will have their organization so comploto in ovory township that they wlll.tako the election of tho 26 State Senators and tho 153 Representatives in tho Legislature into their own bands. Wo do not say that this is alto gether desirable, but wo look upon it as highly probable. They will also tako into their own hands tho election of mombors of Congress, and will select men not because of their advocacy of tho Fifteenth Amendment, nor of their loyalty duping tho War, but because of their supposed fidelity to farmers’ interests. In tho meantime, what will become of tho Re publican and Democratic parties ? In tho judg ment of ovory true friend of reform, those par ties have outlived their usefulness, Both are corrupt. Tho Republican party is tbo more cor rupt of tho two, by reason of its larger opportu nities. If the Democratic party had equal op portunities, it would probably bo more corrupt than tho Republican, because its rank and file, in the Northern States at least, possess loss intelli gence. Both Imvo reached a state where they ought to bo overthrown and pulverized. If tho farmers’ movement shall give them tho coup do grace, whether intentionally or otherwise, it will have taken tho first stop to a wider and more wholesome reform than its projectors intended. AGRICULTURE THE BASIS OF OUR INDUS- TRY. Why does tho prosperity of manufactures de pend upon tbo growth and prosperity of agri culture ? Nearly every intelligent person concedes tho fact; not every ono comprehends the cause or tho extent of that dependence. Erect mills, secure materials and hands, turn out products however abundant, maintain them at artificial prices however high, and there yet remains ono absolutely essential condition of success—adequate consumption of products. The largo production yields only largo loss if, for want of adequate consumption, too much of tho product remains ou hand and uuconsumod. For this reason, many establishments have failed, and many aro failing, under tho opera tion of tho present protective tariff. Uonco, tho first and surest tost of the progress of manu factures in any branch is, not tho increase of production, but tbo increase iu consumption of its products. Tho hands employed in manufactures, and those dependent ou thorn, can consume but a small part of their products, nor, if all 1 persona engaged in trade and transportation and in per sonal or professional services, havo wo yot a body of consumers at all adequate to tho sup port of manufacturing. Tho immense body of persons who dopoud upon agriculture for a liv ing must iu this country consume more than half of tho products of manufactures, if they are consumed at all. Iu 18G0, only 61,000 workers produced all tho woolen goods con oumod by 31,000,000 of people, except the quantity imported, thou about one-fourth of tho whole, so that 80,000 workers would have supplied more woolou goods than the whole nation consumed. Only 127,000 workers sup plied more than five-sixths of the cotton goods thou consumed in tho country; and 198,003 workers supplied nine-tenths of tho iron and its products consumed. So of other manufac tures ; if wo are shut out from foreign markets for our products, the number of persona who can profitably bo employed in any branch of manufactures is limited by tho ability of persons not employed in manufactures to consume its products, and must, in any case, bo a veiy small part of tho whole population. Now, of persons not employed in manufac tures, far moro than one-half are dependent upon agriculture for subsistence. In 1860, those directly engaged in agriculture wore more than one-half of tho whole num ber of persons employed, but of tho persons not so engaged a very con siderable proportion wore females who had not families depending upon them, so that tho proportion of families or persons dependent upon agriculture was much more than one-half. According to the census of 1870, out of 10,GG0,. GOG males engaged in gainful occupations, 6,525,503, or 52 per cent, wore engaged iu agri culture, and of tho remainder about 100,090 wore domestic servants, so that much moro than half of tho families and inhabitants of tho entire country are now, and woro iu 1800, dependent upon agriculture for subsistence. In proportion to the prosperity of that industry must bo their ability to consume the products of manu factures. When crops fail, when prices fall so that crops yield no fair return for labor, the vast body of persons dependent upon this great industry must perforce restrict their purchases; they make the old clothes wear yet, a little longer, the old shoos aro moro patiently patched, the desired repairs aud im provements and purchases of Implements and machinery are deferred as far ou possible. As they consume so largo a proportion of all goods and wares manufactured, a very moderate de crease in their consumption makes all tho dif ference between largo profit and largo loss toim portant branches of manufacture. Any contin ued depression of the farming interest is as sure to he followed by tho closing of factories, tho abandonment of mills, and tho discharge of laborers, as tho uprooting of the plant is to ho followed by tho withering of Its foliage and fruit. Hot only the prosperity of farmers, but their constant inoroaßo in number, is necessary to tho growth of manufactures, when a system of protection, with Us artificial prices, drives our goods from foreign markets. Tho number of persons profitably supported by intermediate employments—in trado and transportation, per sonal and professional services—can only In crease ao tho increase of producers and con sumers affords demand for their services in tho interchange of products, or as population In creases. If tho growth of agriculture la retard ed, then tho increase In tho number of con sumers of manufactured goods must bo retarded moro than one-half as much, and, when manu factures increase at tho same time moro rapidly than population, a general prostration, In oouso quonco of tho failure to consume tho greatly multiplied products, must quickly result. Within tho last decade, ihoro has boon an In crease of 81 por conk In tho gold valuo of tho products of manufacture. Tho increase of exports of manufactured products has boon but seven millions—loss than ono-two-hundrodth part of tbo product, and only 14 por cent of such exports in 1860, so that a larger proportion of such products bos boon thrown upon our own markets for consumption. But tho enliro In crease in tho valuo of farming products baa boon practically nothing; ovon if wo estimate it at tho samo ratio as farms havo increased la valuo, it would bo but ninety millions, with which to pay for tho farmers’ sharo of five hun dred and fifky-oigbt millions—tbo increase in gold valuo of manufactured products. If tho farmers, and those dependent on them, con- Biimo only ono-balf tho product—and they consume moro—thoro Is an increase of $270,000,000 in tho* manufactured goods ‘'which tho farmer must consume, if manufactm co aro to find as ready a market as thoy did in 1670, and yot tho farmer has not moro than $00,000,000, tho increase in valuo of his own products, with which to pay. Evidently, tho farmer must either run into debt, or a ruinous proportion of manufactured goods must remain unsold. Both events aro now occurring. Mills aro closing; tho farmers aro getting into debt. Forced to consume moro than ho can pay for, tho farmer still cannot consume as much as his sharo of tho goods our manufacturers produce. Disaster to both can bo averted only by such a change of policy ns shall secure rapid progress and fair return to that Industry which is the basis of all our labor and trade. It is strange that those who invest their money in manufactures, and those whose wages depend upon tho growth and success of manufactures; so often fail to realize that tho first necessity for thorn is to secure prosperity to .tho farmer, and consequent increase in tho consumption of manufactured products. It should bo thoir first question, when any measure apparently for their benefit is proposed, “Will this toud to cmhnr ras farmers, to lesson thoir profits, to dolor peo ple from that employment, and thus to diminish tho number and ability of those upon whom wo .must depend foe the consumption of morothan half of our products?” Bolf-lutoroat is often shortsighted. But uovor is its blindness more painfully manifest than when workmen and em ployers in manufacturing establishments de mand, In tho hope that it may benefit them, a form of taxation which plunders and oppresses every former. Tbo-Chicago Times of tho .20th was guilty of tho following perversion of truth: Speaking of tbo Judicial coutcat lu the Fifth District of this State, and of Judge Lawrence’s attitude as a candidate, tbo New York Express says: If anything could make an elective Judiciary con lomplilbo, it would bo a Judge thus selected to dccldo a case In tbo Interest of one party or one subject. Surely tbo sober occond thought of a people will never, whether for railroads or against them, penult a Judge to bo selected upon such a record as this. This is tbo view of ibo matter taken by the press all over tho country. It hardly requires that wo should state, what will bo obvious to every reader, that ihO com ments of tbo .Eicjjrcss apply 'to the peculiar at titude of Mr. Craig, aud not that of Judge Lawrence. Judge Lawrence Is a candidate for re-election; ho has not been “ selected ” by any party or class, nor is ho a candidate under any pledge, express or implied, to decide a case in the interest of one party or subject, dr in any way except as the law aud justice shall require. Tho Express states tho general opinion of tho country concerning Craig's nomination under an implied pledge as to how ho will decide a case to come before him. Two prize-fighters, Chambers and Soddons, after a long flourish of trumpets and much pre liminary bragging, wont out to flgbt tho other day, aud then came homo without doing it. Tho roughs who wont with thorn didn't fight either. No one was hurt aud no one was killed, much to tho disgust of all docent and peaceful people, Tbo whole affair seems to have boon a very moan, swindling transaction between two brutes, who woro too cowardly to fight, aud. shows very conclusively tho low state of degra dation into which tho prizo-riug has fallen, It is cheering to know that tho “manly art" has so far declined in this country, hut iu England it still has its patrons, oven among tho nobility. The latest English papers state that Nappor, tho champion of tho feather-weights, and Davis, a professional pugilist, had a des perate and altogether disgraceful fight la a Bap tist chapel iu London, for a stake of SSOO, of fered as a prize by tho Marquis of Quoonsbury. Tho noble Marquis himself and many other prominent British citizens wore present, aud tbo whole affair ended in a riot, NOTES AND OP|NION. The Minnesota Republican State Central Com mittee met iu St. Paul Wednesday, to imnio a day for the State Convention, but more espe cially to squelch proceedings by the Senate in the impoaclunent of State Treasurer Soogor. Having succeeded to their high satisfaction, and caiiod a Convention to meet duly ID, the Bk. Paul Press (organ) says; TUo proceedings were harmonious oml agreeable throughout, amt n diaposltlon was hUowu to miter the campaign with tho old determination to \riu another victory for tho Republican parly. More important, of course, “to win another victory for the Republican parly" than to have an honest administration in Minnesota. —Tho Soogor impeachment hi St. Paul having developed nothing, because forbidden to do so lest “ the Republican party” should suffer hurt, wo hereby put on record tho names of tho gen tlemen who might have given valuable testi mony, viz: M, Aumbacli, D.

It Is bandy to havo a State Treasurer within reach to draw upon without security or luterost, and “ call It a loan.” Those, also, are the men who now 41 outer the campaign with tho old determination to win another vic tory for (?) tho Republican parly." —Tho Cincinnati Gazette (Administration) had high liopofl, clown to Wodncflday morning, that

the Ohio Republican Convention of (hat day would flay floraothing frank, manly, and to tho point of popular expectation. And now all It can eny is, that “Tho platform 1h a good ploco of political carpentry.” Tho Cincinnati Com mercial says of this piece of carpentry i Anplatform-makers wear© hardynhlolopronounce tho Republicans of Ohio a success, Tho principles of tho party being rcnlllrmod In yoaterday’H effort, it was necessary to ronlllrm tho President.

Tho welcoming to our shores of tho oppressed of all nations Is a flno old cere mony. There is no harm in It to speak of. .Nothing la said of speeding tho departure of tho oppressed of our own country. Tlio Gazette's faint praioo ami Ita form of ox pVosaion would load ub to infer that, oven In tbe opinion of tho principal Administration paper In Ohio, the people expect, this year, something bettor than merely “ a good picco of political carpentry.” Perhaps tboy don’t want any po litical carpentry at all. — l Tho Cincinnati Enquirer (Opposition) says: Tho Republican platform, wo tiro constrained to say, is a bundle of emptiness In nino parts. There Is no evidence In (ho platform of righteous Indignation against corruption.- Thoro la no declaration lu tho platform which approaches posittvenesa concerning tho commanding questions of tho future. Ills timid where it might have been brave. It is Janus.faccd where It. should havo looked toward tho light. It Is insipid whoro it might havo been bright. —Tho lilade and tho Commercial, of Toledo, tho Herald nnd tho Leader of Cleveland, Jay great alrcea upon it that tho plotfomi M reaf firms tho established principles of tho party,” aud nro glad. —Tho hotter class of newspapers in lowa rejoico that tho “ lowa Proas Excursion ” is not to bo made, this year, for lack of dcad-hoad tickets. Tho Watertown Courier says: • Wo think it discreditable to tlio Association and to tho fraternity of lowa to make these annual appeals to railway companies to afford free transportation to half a dozen or a dozen score of Journalists. If wo are Justified in asking for further favors from the rail ways, Iftt ua ask that they como 'down slightly with their freight-rates in tho interest of tho whole popula tion of lowa and tbo West. And tbo Keokuk Gate City says; Wo hoped that tbo railroad maiiiiKoinenlfl would bo utterly pervoreo mid unaccommodating. Press excur sions ore o boro; a boro to editors aud a boro to rail roads. TUoy are not creditable to Journalism .nor in anywise helpful to It. —Col. Qoorgo Williamson, of Louisiana, hav ing boon appointed Minister to tbo Control American States consolidated, it is well to know, as Administration papers take pains to inform ua, that “ XIo was an ardent Confederate, and commanded a regiment under Qon. Kirby Smith in tho trans-Mississippi campaign. Since then ho has 'accepted the situation 1 to tho ex tent of warmly supporting tho Administration party iu Louisiana, and ho now has his reward.” Col. Williamson was terribly disap pointed, a year ago, in having to give way to McEnory, as candidate for Governor of Louisi ana, aud wont off mad,—wont to have a time in California. Then ho camo hack, and all at onco appeared as Tom Scott’s railroad attorney, and a supporter of Grant aud Kellogg. And now ho has his reward. —Gov. Dix having vetoed tho Local-Option bill, Gov. Dix’s organ, at Albany, says: Tbo Republican party was not organized to enact or enforce sumptuary laws.
