Tub croakers who are telling you bow
hard times are, can now digest the fact
that the failures in the United States
for May are the fewest on record. Only
two-thirds as large as the smallest 'in
any otber year, and only one-third of a
year ago. Tbe amount of business the
country is doing is 50 per cent greater
than last year, as indicated by tbe bank
clearances. The iron and steel trade
bas always been considered tbe best
index oi the prosperity pi the country and
of the state of trade. Tbe business in
this line is without a parallel, and ex
ceeds all expectation. The trade in
other lines confirms tbe fact tbat the
iron business is the industrial barometer
that it most reliable.
After many weary months of waiting
and a fight tbat has nearly overturned
the government, Dreyfus is to hsye a
new trial by court martial. Witb bis
accusers dead or scattered it is believed
the trial will be nothing more than a
form. Tbe government has decided to
punish all who took part in this con
spiracy, and .the chief one in France is
now nnder arrest. The outcome will
be watched with great interest by every
lover of justice for it is believed that an
innocent man baa been greatly wronged.
France is tottenng now from her mili

The new tax bill in New York is on
tbe right lines. It taxes the franchise
of street car companies and tbe like.
Express, telegraph, insurance and rail
road companies hold valuable franchises
and rights by which tbey make thous
ands ot dollars and at the same time
contribute little or nothing to the support
of tbe government that protects them
and makes it possible for them to amass
their fortunes. Take the express com
panies for an illustration, they pay im
mense dividends and scarcely a cent of
taxes. Many of the eastern states are
making the concerns psy a license in
order to do business within their borders.
Some ot the eastern states are largely
supported by this income. The governor
of New York is taking the right course
and one that Oregon could well imitate
hlory of a Stare.

The backing cough, spitting nf hlnod,

consumption, if they are not already the
signs of it. Then there are the other imli
cations of the approach of consumption,
such aa nitht-awruts, emaciation, or want
ing away of flrah from bail nutrition, which,
if neglected, lead to certain death.
