any note, from Hie famous Treadwell mine
of Muska to the Tombstone mines of Arizona,
bit judgment is entitled to soma weight.
There are more men in these camps to-day
than bave ever beeu seen at any time since
their history began. It is also a notable fact
that for the most part the men are practical
miners representing considerable capital,
and their object can be easily divined, as
men of this stamp do not nsually spend
their money in tbe vain hope of beiug prof
ited b tlie dreams of visionaries.

The disposition ot tbe sugar schedule
made by the present tat ill' bill illustrates
fully the Republican purpose in passing
such a law. ltaw sugar is placed on the
free list, but tbe duty is retained on the
higher grades of lenned sugar. Tbis meaus
tbat tbe sugar plauter is to lose the protec
tion he formerly eujoyed, and tbat the con
sumer of sugar is to derive no benefit from
the abolition of tbe duty. The benefit all
goes to the refiners They.will bave cheap
raw material and protection on tbe product
of their industry. That sort of an arrange
ment is truly Republican.
It is reported that Quay has been using
some of the fat he fried oot of tbe rich Re
publicans for national purposes to grease
the Delamater machine in Pennsylvania,
aud that he and Clarkson have fallen out in
oonsequenoe. It is an illustration of the
adage that it takes a thief to catch a thief.
