IT OUGHT TO 11 M PASSED.
It Is to be !ioH'l there Is no truth In
a statement imputed to a Republican
senator yesterday to the effect that the
Republicans do not mean to let the tar
iff bill pass so lonit as there Is any pos
sibility of delaying It. It would seem
that there tun be neither credit or
profit in obstructing It In any way. All
that should be demanded Is a fair op
portunity to propose such decent and
proper amendments as ought to ro with
it. The country desires that the bill be
disposed of after a fair share of deliber
ation, and It Is to the Interest of the
Republican lMii'ty that Its wishes be
compiled with. There can be no doubt
that the uncertainly resulting from the
unreasonable delay of the majority In
reporting the bill has been the greatest
cloud resting on the business horlaon,
and It Is bound to remain until final
notion Is taken In the senate. It is sure
to pass, and substantially In the form
ulready agreed to by the iH-mocratic
senators outolde of the chamber. Hill
and Murphy's pretended opposition to It
Is all a myth. There are no real Inde
pendent Democrats In the senate, and
there has been none for many years
past. They will all vote for the bill In the
end. and Ue Republicans must under-
stand that It Is out of the question to j
defeat It. It would seem like a needless !
. . . i
and reckh. waste of time to undertake
tuiy further serious opiwltlon to It.
The g".ime of football has become i

that A committee of five, representing
the prominent universities and colleges
of the cojntry, has been struKKr1ng with
the question of revising- the rules for
nearly five months past. It endtd Its
labors In Netr York one day last week,
nnd has rwmumtided a number of
mlmr chanters. The most Important of
Uie chanires, as the report shows, are
the lnwrtion of a clause providing
icuinst piling up on a man when he is
down, and the addition of section

he adopted by the colleges and unlver!-
ties, they will probably be followed by
amateur clubs throughout the country,
and the dangers attendant upon the
playing of this great game will be re
duced to the minimum. Thr.- changes

versity Athletic club, of New York city
It Is very easy to overestimate the
force of the sliver movement In Europe.
Through ail the phases of preneiitlng the
nilver question, the plain business thread
is that silver has been over-produced. It
Is cheapened, not because there has
been war upon it, but rather the efforts
made to advance Its value above the
regular market rate have stimulated the
miners. The people of the United States
would find no advantage In cheapening
money. Thin country has the highest
standard, and to abandon it would be to
suffer enormous loss and gratuitous hu
It would seem that the opening of
the farming season In the middle and
western states ought to furnish work
for some of the unemployed, but there
appears to be no diminution In their
number. The fact is the number of
men out of employment Is so prodigious
thre would not be room for them on
all the cultivated farms in the country.
There are many sensible people who be.
lieve that Napoleon's plan under some.
what similar circumstances Is the only
way out of the difficulty.
The declination of Sheriff Smith and
County Clerk Trenohard to become In
deptndento candidates for re-election to
their respective offices is a credit to
these gentlemen. The temptation has
been great and the influences brought
to bear upon them powerful, and while
opinions may differ as to their chanceB
for success as such candidates, there
will be a unanimity of respect felt for
their manly and straightforward course
by the good men of all political connec
POLITICAL POINTERS FOR ORE
Each succeeding month brings an
other Increase of the public debt, with
nothing to Bhow for it but an accumu.
latlng record of Democratic Incapacity
In all directions.
Here and there the Gorman tariff
raises duties from the McKlnlcy level
until they are practically prohibitory.
This Is one of the eccentricities of Dem

St. Louis Globe Democrat.
The recent Republican victories have
reklixsed the fires In a good many fur
naces and provided work for a consid
erable number of Idle laborers; but the
menace of Democratic tariff-smashing
still stands In the way of a genera) and
satisfactory revival of business.
It passes comprehension that even the
smull number of members of the senate
who have Joined In the preparation of
this bill should have been so unjust, un
patriotic, unwise and politically stupid
as to send out In sober earnest such a
proH)sed revolutionary change In our
whole economic system, When the
American people come to understand
the whole matter, to look the situation
squarely in the face, to fully realize
how they have been brazenly sold out,

A CLEAN JAIL.
Hud W. H. Warren, the county Jailor,
been called Ukii yesterday by any one
wishing to visit the county Jail, It would
have been found as clean as a new pin.
It Is kept clean at nil times, but Wed
nesday and Saturday are the days that
are set aside to give each cell and hall
a good scrubbing, and the prisoners
were up and at It early yesterday, fin
ishing before noon. To look at the Jail
from the outside It would seem nt a
glance to be an easy place to get out of,
but to an Inmate It Is not an Inviting
task. The building Itself contains 11
tons of spikes, while the cells are made
from the best of steel, and the Jail
building Is simply a roof for the cells.
! as a prisoner once In them Is as safe as
though he was behind six feet of stone
wall. There are some rt'Urs needed.
