STEPHEN J. FIELD.
The retirement of Associate Jus
tice Stephen .J. Field from active
service in the supreme court of the
United States marks an epoch in the
history of American jurisprudence.
Justice Field has completed the long
est term of service of any justice
since the wonderful machinery of
the American government was finish
ed and put in motion. Appointed
by President Lincoln, March 10th,
1803, he has outlived all the other
appointments to like positions by the
martyr president. As the venerable
jurist himself puts it, "At the head
of the court when I became one- of
its members was the venerable Chief
Justice Tarrey, and among the asso
ciate justices was Justice "Wayne,
who had sat with Chief Justice Mar
shall, thus constituting a link between
the pnst Mini future, and, as it were,
bringing into unit3' nearly an entire
century of the history ot this coun
try. During my incumbency three
chief justices and . sixteen associate
justices have passed away." Few
families, if any, have taken such a
prominent . part in the conduct of
American affairs as has this
generation of Fields. Four brothers,
equally prominent in their different
vocations, have contributed deeds of
worth to promote the country's
greatness, and added laures to their
oun fame. "Without the indomitable
courage and far seeing prophecy of
Cyrus Field the laying of the' Atlan
tic cable would have been delayed
man' years. David Dudley Field
occupied, probably, the foremost po
sition among the leading legal stu
dents of the last half century. 1I.M.
Field is kno?u wherever the church
has spread its gospel, while the white
haired iran who has just lain down
the active burdens of life to spend
his few remaining years in peace,
has made an impression upon the
constitutional life of the country
such as few men could ever hope to
What a well rounded life his has
been ! In the stirring scenes of gol
den California, he bore a prominent
and dignified part. In the dark days
of the rebellion he ttur the inner
workings of the' ponderous rnacbin
ism whose labor it was to save the
union from disruption. In the time
reconstruction he aided in making
the nation whole again. His eyes
have witnessed and his hands have
born a part in the determination of
the gigantic questions which the
American people have had to settle
in the last quarter century.
The supreme court of theUnited
States, most people agree, is the most
dignified body in the world. To oc
cupy such a prominent position as
Justice Field has done, would seem
the satisfaction of the most exacting
ambition a man could have. .
"Happy, indeed, is he who crowns mid
scenes like thege,
A youth of labor with an age of ease."
The American people feel a sym
pathetic interest in the retirement of
Justice Field, and appreciate the
very tender letter written by Pres
ident McKinley and, the heartfelt
words of the associate justices. The
example set by. any one of the Field
brothers is one which every Ameri
can youth' would (Jo.rweU to follow,
though few can hope to imitate.
THE . RETURN OF PROSPERITY.
Tbe return of gold to this country
is generally accepted as one of the
most substantial signs of renewed
The gold arrived or shipped dur
ing th past week amounted to $8,
850,000, and il is thought before
the movement stops forty or fifty
millions will come. The treasury
now holds nearly one hundred and
fifty million dollars in gold, against
one hundred and twenty-five-million
last year and ninety-three millions
in I89;. - ' .
Tbe failures for the quarte r to
October 1st, were for any quarter
since 1802, and the business payment
through banks the largest by two
hundred and sixty-eight millions, ao-
conrding to Dun's Keview,ever known
in September. The week's exchanges
were 8.8 per cent larger than in
1892. The aggregate returns of the
railroads for September were 12.8
per cent larger than last year. There
was a net increase of $13,160,440 in
the money in circulation in Septem
ber. The export trade was enormous,
but there hns been a falliug off dur
ing the past week of one million
bushels each in wheat and corn. It
is thought to be a hint from foreign
customers to our farmers and spec
ulators not to "hold back for higher
prices." An advance in wool to the
average of twenty cents ' a pound
adds to the satisfaction ef the farm
ers. Altogether it may be said that a
greater change for the better in the
business condition of the country
was never experienced than that
which the last twelve months have
witnessed. By every possible test it
has been proven that the policy ad
vocated by the Republican party is
the best for the general good of its
country, and under it the nation can
enjoy a prosperity not possibly under
the doctrines promulgated by any
other political body.
Something? to Depend On.
Mr, James Jones, of the drug firm of
Jones & Son, Cowden, 111., in speaking
