The political economists who
hold that "a national debt is a
national blessing" would be poorly
satisfied with our financial policy,
whieh is fast wiping out our
national indebtedness. Despite
the fact that the government is
spending $1,000,000 a day, $365,
000,000 a yearr the debt is con
stantly diminishing. Our dis
patches say $15,000,000 was wiped
out in June. At this rate the
once monstrous three billion dollar
debt will be totally done with by
the dawn of the twentieth century.
Under the old constitution of
Poland any citizen had a right to
make any demand he chose. It
was his privilege, in case of re
fusal by the legislature, to go out
and raise an insurrection to carry
his poimt. If he could rally
enough of men to overawe the
government he won. This was
known as the individual veto, and
the citizen who pronounced it had
the right to overthrow everything
that opposed him if he could
gather enough of strength to do
so. Under the charter of the city
of Astoria the same right obtains,
though of late it appears to have
fallen into "innocuous desuetude."
Mb. Makple, of Yamhill, who it
is believed -will be hanged in the
fullness of lime for murdering Mr.
Corker, is reported to be "con
verted" and is at present enjoying
a season of xare spiritual refresh
ment This is the great advantage
in the Great Hereafter which the
murderer always enjoys over his
innocent victim. The i. v. is un
expectedly stricken down and sent
with all his sins upon his head into
the presence of his Maker without
any of the usual advantages of
preparation, and is presumably
suffering the torments of sheol,
while the party of the first part
who sent him there is enjoying all
the comforts provided for those
who have time to repent.
At Scranton, Pa., recently, Miss
Ethel Lynton, the star of the
Grau-Gordon comic opera com
pany, became incensed at an un
favorable oriticism which appeared
in the Scranton Daily Republi
can, and, meeting the writer of
the criticism behind the scenes,
the irate actress slapped him in
the face, remarking at the same
time -that if she was a man she
would whip the critic within an
inch of his life. And this is one
of the reasons why the theatrical
critiopn, a well oonducted daily is
chary of expressing his real opin
ion of theatrical ladies. He can
say what he likes of the male
asterisks and if one of them kicks
he can stand him off or on, but
when a lady slaps a reporter's face
he can only retire in blushing oon
