snowballing everybody almost, regardlaaa,
of age or nationality, using little discretion
in tne matter, anionic others having an
extra dose for the Chinamen. Last night
a Mongolian went along the street with
his hand on a revolver with the avowed
purpose of shooting it not let alone. He
waa not disturbed. Snow balling is all
right, in the right place when the fight

cowardly to hit any one in the back, or
older men, and Chinamen, anywhere.

Chinamen belonging to the Ferry Street

California, where he gave up a contract

is to connect with the C B & Q. He says
it Is business this time and no mere fool

a funny item. In the mean time the road
will not be sold until the 1st of March.

which the shots traveled. In the test made
the object was to obtain the velocity of a
250 pound shot fired from an eight inch
gun with a charge of SI pounds of hexs
gonol prismatic powder. The standard set
down for Uio conditions isiiOO feet per
second, or at the rate of abouf. 1200 miles
per hour. The instruments showed
velocity of 1702 feet lor the first shot fired;
this came so close to the standard that
other tests were considered unnecessary
This is said to be one of the moit satisfac

One of the popular KentuckUns talked
of to fill Senator Carlisle's unexpired term
is ex Congressman McKeazie. It was Mc
Kenrie who smoothed some troubled waters
during a session of the Chicago convention
by one of those short and humorous speech
es for which be has long been noted. He
put every one in good humor at the start
by promising not to speak more than two
minutes. "If I do," he added, "1 trust
that some good democrat will auspend my
shajiely cadaver from one of the rafters of
this elegant but somewhat leaky auditor
ium." At that moment the unsightly
great pine box in which the unterrified
were assembled was leaking like a sieve,
and old fashioned Jasksonian profanity
was on tap in more than one part of it.

Washington, Jan 23,,'1893.
The Carlisle tariff bill." How does
tbat strike you as a popular title for the
democratic tariff bill which is to be passed
by the Fifty-third congress? Unless
number of gentlemen wno are in position
to know are wrong in their calculation
Senator Carlisle, whose resignation as Sen
ator will take effect the fourtti of next
month, is the man who will frame that bill
The great success of the Walker tariff bill
framed by President Polk's secretary of the
treasurer, was, it is said, what induced Mr
Cleveland to follow the same plan and en'
trust the framing of a tariff bill which is
to be strictly in accord with democratic
ideas, to bis secretary of the treasury
is not to be understood or inferred that this
move is intended to deprive the ways and
means committee of the next bouse of any
of its rights. Ihe idea is merely to put
into the bands of tbat committer a com
plete tariff bill, leaving its members to
decide whether it shall be accepted as p're-
prepared or be amended before being
ported to tne bouse, whatever ones
opinion of this method of preparing the
tariff bill may be, it cannot be denied that
John G Carlisle is by experience and
ability specially well qualified to frame the
de mocratic bill. He has for many years
bejn a leading tariff reformer, and his
name attached to the bill would of itsel
make It popular with. the rank and file o
the democratic party. '
Much curiosity is felt concerning the
answer that Secretary Foster will make to
Representative Scott's resolution, which
hat beeu adopted by the bouse, calling for
information as to the delay in the eieLtluu
of public buildings for which the nifnij
has been appropriated by congress. Mr
Scott says he is satisfied that the delay has
been caused by the lack o' money in the
treasury, and the fact are all apparently
with him; bat it is hardly probable that
tin wily secretary of the treasury will ad

information called for by the lessaution be
truthfully liven it will be seen that it bas
been terribly stretched, both as to time and
persons. It would be much better to ab
solutely suspend the civil service law so far
as it rebates to appointments and removals,

proposed by Representative IVArmond's
bill, bow in the hands of a bonne committee
than to evade it a has been done under
this administration; besides, it would be
much more manly and faoaaorabte.
The favorable report to the boose on the
bill repealing all federal election laws eon
tains some very strong language, but, as
the report truthfully says, "these laws are
a continued menace to the peace and well
fare cf the country," and nothing said
again.! them can be too strong. The
house will pas this bii. not with any ex
pectation that it can get through the

REFORM FOB RHODE WLAM.
The democrats of Rhode Island are on
the right track when then they set out to
demand a reform of a constitution which
subject the people to various unjust and
it is always right and always sound
policy for the democratic party to strike at
the root of evil which afflict the people.
When ancient wrongs are imbedded in or
ganic law there is no hope of complete and
permanent emancipation except by reform
of the law.
Ihe Connecticut democrats made this
issue in the last 'campaign and It helped
them to a signal victory. They may not
get their vicious constitution made over
this, year but they wilLsoon accomplish that
aim if they fight for it.
The American people can be counted
u son ii the long run to establish what is
fair and just if those who suffer by injustice
do not supinely consent.
It i the proper business of the demo
cratic party to red res. the people's wrongs,
and it is never stronger than when it is
fighting for equal righto.
