What a howl there mast have been in
Rome along about the time of the
Caesars, or a little before, when the
ratio of silver to gold was changed from
S to 1 to some 13 to 1. After listening
to populist yelps the echo of Rome's
tiowl can be imagined.

Would not the American people
like to see some high records again for
farm commodities, such, for instance, as
bave been made in the last thirty years
under a republican administration. If
o, vote for it.
The elections in every northern state
the past year point unmistakably to the
fact that the people believe the political
blander of 1892 was the greatest of the
century. And yet the organs and states'
men of Washington are harping about
."redeeming their pledges to the people."
They well know that the people will re
-verse the verdict of 1892, and that they
bave done so at every opportunity.
According to some recent statistics on
the . cost of living, an Englishman
pends, on an average, $48 a year for
food ; a Frenchman, $47 ; a German, $42 ;
a Spaniard, $3i$; an Italian, $24, and a
Russian, $23. Of meat, the Englishman
ats 109 pounds a year; the Frenchman,
358 ; the German, 64 ; the Italian, 26, and
the Russian, 51. Of bread, the English

management of the Oregon Railway &
. Navigation Company is criticised : se
verely, theeport citing many instances
in which terms and provisions of the
lease have been ignored. So strong is
the report that Oliver W. Mink, of the
Union Pacific receivers, has prepared a
refutation of the charges and findings of
the committee, which : was filed along
with, the report. A circular has been
sent out, calling on bondholders of the
issue mentioned to deposit them on or
before May 25, in view of the probable
defalcation of the December interest, so
that foreclosure proceedings may be be

, The New York Tribune ot May 2d pre
dicts that the Wilson bill will surely be
killed or postponed on account of the
impossibility of pleasing the advocates
and opponents of the income tax and
the different theorizers of the tariff in
the democratic ranks. If the Wilson
bill were now in operation that journal
says that industrial conditions would be
much worse than they are. Not two
thirds of the quantity of wool required
to keep the works in operation has been
sold daring the last year, and the bal
ance farmers will not sell or manufac
turers buy at present prices, while the
part of the labor employed consents
only as a temporary thing to accept
wages which could not be made perma
nent unless after a prolonged strike and
great suffering. The demand for goods
is fully a third less" than usual, because
the people, impoverished by the ap
proach of free trade, cannot purchase as
much as usual and can economize in
clothes rather than in food. Were the
pending bill in force foreign goods would
be imported in enormous quantities, if
the people were able to buy, at prices
far below the cost of manufacturing sim
ilar goods here, even with wool and la
bor unnaturally cheap. The proof is
that foreign agents have for months been
offering to sell goods for future delivery
at such prices after the bill takes effect.
To pass the bill would not end uncer
tainty, but would indefinitely increase
it. It wonld not revive business, but
would - close part of the works now in
operation, though no one can determine
how large a part. The short and open
path to revival of business lies the other
way. Kill the bill, or postpone it until
the people can act on it, and importing
agents may get white with wrath, but
Americans will rejoice.
Income Tax the Bock on which the
. Democracy Will Spilt.
rom our Regular Correspondent. . ,
... Washington, May 4, 1894. .
The announcement by members of the
administration that the tariff dispute
among the democrats had been patched
up by concessions to the democratic pro
tectionists was a little premature. The
dispute is still going on. The adminis
tration doubtless thought it was all set
tled when the authorized announcement
to that effect was given ont, but it has
discovered its error. The income tax is
the principal stumbling block. Its
democratic opponents declaring it to be
as objectionable in its proposed modi
fied form as it was when passed by. the
bouse, and demanded that it be dropped
entirely. This the southern senators
say they will never consent to, and
Voorhees stated with vehemence on the
floor of the senate that whatever else
might be changed or dropped the in
come tax would . remain in the bill.
Senators Hill, Smith and Murphy have
stated privately their intention to vote
against the bill if the income tax is re
tained, and it is believed that Brice and
Gorman will stand by them.
Senator Squire of Washington has re
ceived.: many congratulations on his
masterly and carefully prepared speech
against the tariff bill, and he fully de
serves them all. He drew a powerful
and truthful picture of the attitude of
the democratic party in its persistency
in defying the known will of the people,
in rendering valueless millions of dol
lars invested in . manufacturing and
throwing hundreds of thousands of de
serving people out of employment in its
mad chase after cheap foreign manu
factures ; and called especial attention
to the fact that this cheapening process
will, if successful, be of benefit only to
the rich, because the poor being out of
employment or working for wages that
will barely keep soul and body together
will bave no money to buy with.
Some people certainly have queer
ideas of the fitness of things. For in
stance, an' address to the British Par
liament expressing the sympathy of the
senators who voted against the silver
repeal bill at the extra session with the
efforts now being made in that body for
the establishment of bimetallism, was
this week signed by a number of sena
tors and -cabled to London.- While
every American who lhas thonght any
thing about the matter doubtless sym
pathizes with and hopes most heartily
for -the success of bimetallism in Eng
land, many will not fail to call this ad
dress a bit of bad taste. We should not
fancy members of parliament Bending a
similar address to congress concerning
pending legislation. And aside from
bad taste it was poor policy, as lt is
more likely to injure than to help the
cause of bimetallism in parliament. It
is human nature to resist anything that
looks like outside interference.
. Gen. John ,C New of Indiana, who
was in Washington when the story was
received alleging that Harry C. New, of
the Indianapolis Journal, a son' of the
general, had publicly announced ' the
candidacy of Gen. Harrison for -1896,
promptly pronounced the' story- .a fake
and added significantly:''-' "General
Harrison will not be a candidate in
1896. He has made no efforts id that
direction, and will make none ; -' neither
will his friends. Short of some great
emergency or contingency like that
which induces the patriot to take np
arms for his country, Gen. Harrison's
name will not go before the national
republican convention. -This is in ac
cord with his own wishes." Gen.New's
close relations with Gen. Harrison
makes this statement important.
A " more pitiable and miserable half
starved, ragged, half-sick body of men
than Coxey's army it would be difficult
to find. They are huddled together in
an enclosure that was a" few years ago
a marsh, alongside of an open sewer,
with dung hills for beds and with pools
of disease-breeding stagnant water all
around them.- The place is called by
courtesy a camp, but if these men are
allowed to remain there for any length
of time it will prove to be a death trap
to the poor deluded men. - Coxey was
warned not to put his men there, but
he said they could die there as well as
any place else. He' luxuriates at a
hotel and takes good care not to spend
much time at the disease-breeding en
closure, but . he doesn't neglect to
pocket the money taken in at the gate
as admission fees. The men be brought
here are to be pitied, but Coxey ought
to receive punishment for bringing
them here. His failure and arrest for
attempting to 'violate law by speaking
on the capitol steps ought to have been
enough for him, but he says he proposes
to keep the men Here, if he can, and to
induce others to come for the purpose of
making another attempt with a stronger
force. , Cas.
A Form of Insanity Sometimes Afflicts
the Huge Beasts.
When we present the elephant in
possession of such intellectual gifts as
may be his, there has to be considered
the case of the elephant that, being
"must," is for a time .- bereft of its
senses. It is only the male that suf
fers from this affliction of insanity; but
every male is liable to it some time or
other, and, unfortunately, may be at
tacked by it without warning of any
Some men of long experience of ele
phant keeping say that the "must"
condition is preceded by premonitory
symptoms, and if taken in time may,
by diet and treatment, be averted; but,
without presuming- to contradict those
better-informed people, I can aver that
I have known some of them, to be
taken by surprise by the sudden
"mustinp" of elephants under their
own immediate supervision.
Some elephants, says Blackwood's
Magazine, become demons of cruelty
when "must," as, for example, a com
missariat elephant that during- my
time in Oudh broke away from the
Luckno .-v lines and went over a con
siderable t,-ct of country, killing-men,
women and children wherever it found
an opportunity of doing so.
I do not remember the total number
killed by that beast, but it was sadly
large. And, of course, valuable as the
animal was to the government, only
one course could be pursued in regard
to it. The sentence passed upon' it was
that of death, and the execution was
carried out, not without difficulty and
danger to the executioners, by several
Europeans, who followed and shot it
down. . .
Judge Ritchie, of the superior court
of Baltimore, has just rendered a de
cision in which he holds . that it is the
duty of that city to keep the sidewalks
in repair. ' It was held by Judge
Ritchie in his decision that the side
walk is as much a part of the public
highway as the bed of the street, and
that the abutting owner has no more
right of property in the sidewalk than
in the street bed. - .
Persons who . sympathize with . the
afflicted will rejoice with D. E. Carr of
1233 Harrison street, Kansas City. - He
is an old sufferer from inflammatory
rheumatism, but has not heretofore been
troubled in this climate. . Last winter
be went np into Wisconsin, and in con
sequence has had another attack.' "It
came upon me very acute and severe,"
he said. "My joints swelled and became
inflamed ; sore to touch or almost to look
at. Upon the urgent . request of my
mother-in-law I tried Chamberlain's
Pain Balm to reduce the swelling and
ease the pain, and to my agreeable sur
prise, it did both. I have used three
fifty-cent bottles and believe it to be the
finest thing for rheumatism, pains and
swellings extant. For saie by Blakeley
