The groat need of this country jast now is a secretary of state like James G. Blaine. This is a good week to begin prac ticing your resolution to promote home industry by buying home goods. "So," said she, "the 53d congress is dead." "Yes," replied Senator Sor ghum, ''but tho 6Ugar trust still lives." Washington Star. According to the San Francisco Argonaut, for every ?100 in gold pro duced in Colorado in 18C2 there were $164 in 1893 and 263 in 1894 The late congress created the largest demand for chloride of lime in politics that has been known since the war.

The Coqmlle creamery started up last week under the management of the dairymen's union and R. D. San ford & Co. May it live long and prosper. Senator Edmunds has aptly de scribed the income tax congress as a body of misguided gentlemen who have now vanished from the face of the earth. A democratic writer says there is "gratifying evidence that free wool has come to stay in this country P But what about the sheep? llarys Tille Appeal. John It. Sullivan is reported to be preparing his memoirs for publica tion. They will probably be issued in the form of a scrapbook. Los Angeles liecord. It is asserted that not a single member of the late congress has as yet made a return of his income tax, and it would appear that all are waiting in the hope the supreme cosrt will knock: it out The talk of republican opposition to Reel for speaker is all bosh, of course. He will be elected by a practically unanimous vote of his paity; and he will wield the gavel in such a way as to make things con stantly uncomfortable for the demo crats. Globe Democrat. The man who mortgages the soil not only pledges his own rights and privileges of "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness," but he pledges those of other men, as well as those of his children, by doing so. Indi viduals should be denied the right to mortgage tho soil. East Oregonian. Reports from the Oregon experi ment station show that beets grown in the immediate vicinity of Hilton contain 274 pounds cf sugar lo the ton. At the rate usnally paid for beets at that high grade we have acres and acres of land that will yield its owners 200 per year, and yet that same land can be bought now in advance of the building of the sugar factory for 100 per acre. Cuban annexationists are becoming as numerous 03 frogB In a swamp and about as logical. They want to an nex Cuba for glory, for profit or for stragetic reasons. They all avoid talking about the mass of ignorant and otherwise unfit people who would be made citizens of the United States at one plunge. That objection should outweigh all con siderations to tho contrary. Stock ton Independent. The American market is the best in the world. The total consump tion of goods in the United States amounts in value to $11,005,000,000 a year, while the total amount pur chased from us by all other nations of the world is only 7,569,000,000, so that our own market is worth to us over 4,000.000,000 more than all the markets of the world to which we can possibly have access. No won der England and Germany rejoico to see this magnificent market opened to them and feel grateful to tho dem ocratic party. With a spirit of fairness tho Plaixdealeb has given space to sev eral correspondents forairiog their opinions on the gold and silver ques tion, but space is valuable and unless they can condense their essays to half a column, or less, we cannot use them. Life is too short for an editor 10 spend three hours a day in prun ing down column or a column and a half articles to fit tho limited 6pace at his disposal. Besides it is not ab solutely necessary to tell all one knows on any subject in one news paper article. TLo years are rolling rapidly on ward, and tho timo is not very far distant, when Grover Cloveland will abdicate the exectitivo chair of state, and a republican capable of manag ing tho affairs of tho country will bo installed as president, and tho dis tressing times now existing will dis appear, and prosperity will again reign as formerly under republican rukx. It is uviilont now to ovory one, even tho most thick-headed nnd heretofore deluded democrat, that tho surest way to bring back the prosperity of 1892 is to mako it plain throughout tho country that tho policies, methods und purposes of tho. republican party aro to bo sus tained, by overwhelming majorities, by the voters in the north and in tho south, in the east and in the west, and that tho voters of tho United States will most sorely hasten the ro turn of confidence, tho restoration of prosperity, and tho oxpansion of American industries, by making it clear in every way in their power, from now until after tho votes aro counted in 189G, that they intend to trust their fortunes in overy part of the land to the control of the Repub lican pariy. It is conceded by most men in theso days that nothing can prevent a great republican victory in November 189C. The democracy has been struggling in its death throes for year?, and at last Grover Cleve land with an iron grasp on its throat has strangled tho life out of dem ocracy, and for the future it is doomed to everlasting oblivion. If tho wheat growers and the wool growers had known what was best for thorn in 1S92, they would have yoted as one man for the continu ance of the republican policies, re publican tariff and republican pro tection of American industries. But they voted to turn the republicans out and put tho democrats in, and 40-cent wheat and 7-cent wool have been the lamented results of their votes, but they stand ready today to retreive their error, and by a united vote restore tho republican party to power. So mote it be. THE HOXEY QUESTION AG A IX. To the Editor: It seems to me that cither we common readers of the public press and ordinary citi zens are densely ignorant about money or that most of the writers on financial matters whoso articles we read have failed to grasp the true idea of thrift and prosperity. "S. &." asks in your issue of tho 21st: ""Why is it the wealth of tho country is rapidly accumulating in the hands' of the few." I too would like to ask a few ques tions and perhaps if they can bo an swered honestly then his question will not' be hard to answer. 1st Havo we not bimetalism now? Tho writer understands that our sil ver dollars are a legal tender for any amount, tbo only money in fact that is so, unless there is a contract other wise. What is called ''subsidary coin" is legal tender only for 10 in one payment, and all senm to agree that the amount of such, now coined and in circulation, is needed in the ordinary retail business of the coun try, and that we need not worry as to the "bullion value" of this money. But how -would it be should the amount be increased say ten limes? For my own part I feel 1 am patri otic enough to say I will receive and use it just as willingly as I wonld gold, providing I always find my neighbor of the same mind. Bnt I cannot agree to tako it if ho rill not take it too. If I am correct as to tho law about silver as money it is just possible we are now about as well off as we are; that is, we poor folk aro as well off S3 wa are likely to be by any change in our coinage laws. That is, all sil ver dollars now being coined are full legal tender, And all minor coins are accepted so far without question. The thing really to be dono is to en deavor to keep them so. I have a suspicion that a whole lot of this talk about freo silver is a good deal like tho changes which were rung in our ears a yew yeors ago about ''smashing the robber tar iff." "Tho great campaign of educa- cation" swept over tho country along that line. We thought surely we would smash him when ho went gun ning in '92, but tho result has been somothing. The Bowery bov before the days of Bull Run saw n Reb. going out fronxhis camp for water carrying bis gun. ilr. Bowcryboy grabbing his god stepped out re marking, 'Now yon'l see a fellow jump," and he blazed away at tho man. The fellow seemed willing to return the compliment and surprised tho Bowery-boy by giving him an ugly llesh wound in the leg. As ho returned to camp he was asked if the fellow jumped "Jump, I should say he did jump. But it was the wrong fellow that jumped, that'H tho trouble." Now aro wo sure that wo aro not in this cry for freo silver voicing, those few mentioned by "S. S.'' who own large quantities of silver bullion bought for 50 cents 011 tho dollar and want it coined so tboy can unload it on us poor people for a dollar's worth of labor, wheat, meat, frnit, wood, coal or other products which the pojr man brings to market. I am not taking issue with any one. I only ask that wo do a little more fcolid thinking, Stop talking and go to work. I want to ask whero thero is a bet ter country than this right horo? Where a man is assured better re turns if ho works his land halfwoy decently. Ib not tho market as good hero as elsowhoro! I am told that good butter is sold for 10 cents n pound in California today and hero it is 25 cents. Wheat is worth 10 cents more hero thau 100 miles north of us. Hams, 2J cents moro. Our wool stands higher than any in tho stalo or coast. Now if wo can raiso all wo nood in such abundance why should wo worry about tho tinanco of tho country? Cortainly if 100 million silver dollars wero coined this year wo would not got any of them unless wo had something to soil. But I soo this articlo is getting too long. I may have 8omo raoro homely things to say at another timo on this themo, nnd I am not writing in the interest of tho few by any moans. Z. WEATHER BUREAU. The Kind of Weather We May Ex pect in April.

Washington. March 27. It is claimed by those who arc in position to know that mere 13 a misconception of the text of England's ultimatum to Nicaragua. Tho words eaid to be contained therein, that not a citizen of any American republic" shall be selected as the third member of an arbitration committee to which differ ences between England and Nicaragua be submitted it is now stated are meant to apply only to the small republics of Central and South America. It was thee republics that Great Britain de sired to exclude from having a casting vote beltreca tho iticaragtun represen tative and the commissioner chosen by Great Britain. It is explained the English foreign office riever classifies this great government and people with the bpaniah and I ortucuese-sneakinz Sonth and Central Amerioin uoverumcnts. Wcll-mformd diplomat sav thev do nit expect any complications will arise from the course Great Bri -ia will pursue to enforce settlement of her claim for f75, 000 "smart money." It is not believed resor, will be had to the extreme meas ure of threatening to bombard Grevtown. If Nicaragua proves her inability to pay at once it is believed the claim will, with other matters, be submitted to arbitra tion. flcKinley Recovered. Savannah. Ga.. March 27. A srvci.it from Thomasville says : Goy. McKinley has about recovered from a slight attack of the grip, which caused him to spend several days more in Thomasville than he originally intended, and he will leave hero tomorrow for St. Augustine. When shown a paper which quoted him as say ing that if tho republican partv declared for free silver he would not accept tho nomination for president, tho eovernor shrugged his shoulders and smilingly said: "Why. this is absurd." Hb neither denied or confirmed the state ment and declined to be interviewed on the subject. Emigration Agents Responsible. Home, Marcli 2G. The Italiau imini- gartion commission has adjudged that the steamship aeeots shall indemnify the two Italian immigrants who wero refused perniisjion to land at New York, and were sent back to this countrv by the authorities. The decision of the com mission states that the agents wero guilty of a breach of the law in permit ling the embarkation of the emigranls. The judgment has been communicated to the authorities at Washington, who re plied with a message of thnnks to the Italian officials for their co operation in inforcing the American law.

The bullet has not yet been extranipd from I.i Hung Chang's face, but his condition is fayorable. Ho has no fever and is Buffering but littlo pain. His assailant, who is described as a political nrayo, rushed from the crowd when tho viceroy's palaquin was passing and fired at the Chmeao statesman. The bullet entered his loft cheek. Tho affair has caused tho greatest indignation'here. ot VtCEROU U MUST DIE. Washington, March 2G. In a privato cablegram from Tokio received by member of tho legation here is news world-wide interest. According to this dispatch, which comesjrom tho highest officials in Japan, a German physician, president of tbo university of Tokio, and an expert of high standing, was sent yes terday, .it tho personal request of tho mikado, to examine Li Hung Chang's wound. After a thorough, examination of his distinguished patient, tho physician reported confidentially to tho mikado thai Li Hung Chang most die. Tho wound is in the face, and tho bullet, which the surgeon had not succeeded in exttactiug, is apparently beyond reach. Moreover, Li Hung Chang is 70 years of age, and, although a giant physically, tils years are against him. Tho dispatch which conveys tho information is a pri vato and confidential one, bnt its trust worthiness is not doubted by its recipient. Sijionosaki, March, 2C. Tho condition of Li Hung Chang is favoiablo. It is re ported that he now consented to the ex tinction of the bullet in his tace. His only fear is a lack of cleanliness on the part of his physicians in using their in struments.
