HARRISON'S NICETY OF SPEECH.
There is a difference in men. If any
one does not think so, let him take the
stilted inauguration speech of President
Cleveland and compare its language
with that little speech delivered by ex
President Harrison when his friends
gathered to receive him in Indianapolis
on his return from Washington. There
is not a high-flown word in the whole of
it, and yet it is as graceful as a beautiful
painting, as simply magnificent as the
air of "God Save the Queen." Then
. there is something about it that sets
one's thoughts going; for instance, the
following sentence : Not the rising and
the setting of the sun, but our ex
periences, gives the true sense of dura
tion." A million of men have tried to
thoneht. Not one of
them has ever expressed it exactly be
fnr. Xot one has used less than twice
that number of words in trying to ex
press it. The whole speech, while sim
ply a response to words of welcome, was
complete. Through it nil there is not
the slightest sign of disapointment, and
the tone of it gives particular emphasis
to the closing words, wherein he says
"I left you with but one certainty, and
I return with that certainty, that I had
no other motive in iny heart than the
honor of the flag, the sacredness of the
roTiRtitnlion and the prosperity of all
our people." In whatever else General
Harrison may be weak or wrong, certain
it is that he has no equal in our country
in delivering impromptu and perfectly
innronriate sneechea. no matter what
i i t . -
the occasion may "be. If he has estab
lished one thing more than any other in
the nearly five years since he became
the most prominent figure in the United
States, it is that there never was any
thing so misappropriate as the idea that
his head was not big enough for his
grandfather's hat. That grandfather,
in the days of his greatest glory, was but
a piginv, compared to the grandson.
Salt Lake Tribune.
Holman, chairman of the house com?
mittee, in the remarks which he is pre
paring for publication in the CongreS'
sional Record, concerning the appropri
ations of the 52d congress, shows the
appropriations of the session just closed
amount to $519,21,861. From this
tioint of view, the appropriations of the
51st congress aggregated $1,035,686,921,
and those of the 52d congress amount to
$1,025,822,029, or $8,862,870 less than
those of the 51st congress. Holman will
present statements of the appropriations
made by the 52d congress as charged
against it under permanent appropria
tions in accordance with the require
ments of laws enacted by the 51st con
gress. These include sums aggregating
in all $154,172,040. Judge Holman
states if these appropriations had not
been made as required the total appro
priations of the 52d congress would show
a reduction of more than $163,000,000
than .'the appropriations of the 51st
Washington will have to worry along

reduced to a political cipher in the

The steamer Cachar, which recently
arrived from Tonquin at Marseilles,
brought back M. Sernllaz, who went
out two years ago on a mission from
the French minister of posts and tel
egraphs in search of the Isonandra
gutta percha tree in Malaysia. The
disappearance of this tree threatened
with great embarrassment, if . not ex
tinction, the submarine cable manufac
ture. But M. Sernllaz has discovered
larse forests of these trees, and has hit
upon practical ways or collecting me

has been allowed to' transport several
hundreds of the trees from ten to fifteen
years old to Algiers, and their cultiva

Of Interest to Merchants.
The suit of A. S. Collins and Mrs.' A. S. ColUns
against H. Herbring of this city, which was to
come before the jury yesterday morning, was
again postponed. . This suit against one of our
oldest and best-known dry goods merchants
creates considerable comment in commercial
circles. It appears that Mr. and Mrs. A. 8. Col
lins obtained under false pretenses and promises
at the end of the year 1891,' goods to the amount
of 100-80 from the defendant; but instead of pay
ing the bill, as agreed, they shortly afterwards
left the city by night and moved to California.
Last spring Mr. Herbrlng learned that all their
household goods, etc., were in the hands of the
sheriff of Wasco county, and consequently placed
a second attachment upon the goods held by the
sheriff. A portion of these "goods were sold last
December by the sheriff of Wasco county, as no

THE RESULT OF
FROM THE DAILY PRESS
compromise could be obtained by defendant.
And now come the plaintiffs and sue through
their attorney, Judge A. S. Bennett, the defend
ant, for the sum of 1175.00. We will watch this
suit when it comes before the Jury, as we think
it is one of great interest to storekeepers.

Razor-Edged Technicalities. '
The case of A. S. Collins vs. H. Herbring was
on trial In the Circuit-Court today, and the jury
empanelled were E. W. Trout, Geo. Joles, A. Bet
tingen, Jr., Geo. W. Miller, S. B. Adams, James
Harper, W. C. Hansell, John Wood. Argument
was had this morning on, a motion to non-suit,
made by defendant's counsel, which w..s taken
under advisement until afternoon, when the
Judge overruled the motion. The facts appear
to be that the plaintiff left this' city owing Mr.

Herbring, and he attached property for the debt.
After the sale of the attached property the de
fendant attempts to set aside the sale and sues
Mr. Herbring for damages, claiming that the
proceedings were not technically legal. The
razor-edge technicalities of law, we presume,
will always remain, but it works great hard
ships on creditors, in many instances, to be de
barred from collecting their just Claims from
the commission of a clerical error or the misin
terpretation of a dubious statutory provision.
