There are tout two contingencies, so
far as can now toe foreseen, which are
liable, by their happening, to demand
that the iFtfty-fourth Congress Shall
be convened In extra session. The
first is In Income tox law. If the su
preme court should declare it to toe un
constitutional, and therefore of no ef
fect, the condition of the revenues
would compel the calling of congress
togather to devise some way of pre
venting an alarming deficit. The in
come tax Is expected to provide some
thing like 130,000,000. It is due In
June. Should this source of expected
revenue toe cut off, the president would
call congress together rather than at
tempt another bond Issue. The expec
tation in Washington is, however, that
the Income tax will be sustained
though the court may decide against It
after all. The second cause would
probably arise If the report Is correct
that Japan will exact from China an
indemnity of something like $250,000,000
and require payment In gold. Should
this be the event, It would cause an
enormous demand for gold, and that
metal would toe drawn to the Orient
from the United States and Europe.
It would be necessary for congress to
oonvene and legislate to protect out
gold reserve, else we might be driven
to the tO-cent dollar standard within
very short time. But if Japan should
take the Indemnity In silver, it would
cause a decided rise In the price of
that metal, and benefit the silver min
ers of the West. There can be no
doubt that the financial question, has
to be met. It needs settlement, has
needed It for years, and we can only
hope that the sound sease of the peo
ple will be exerted to accomplish it
without the crash and ruin that would
follow any disturbance of the standard
of any foolish venture on the sea of
Dispatches from the far East Indi

advices appear to foreshadow, that
China will agree In the main to the

The name One Minute Cough Cure
suggests a medicine that relieves at
once, and quickly cures. Its use proves
It, Chas. Rogers.
A cow wearing a bell was run over
and killed on a railway tram near Lon
don recently, and the owner sought to
recover damages from the railway com
ixjjiy. On the trial of the case it
wns proven that It he engineer blew the
whistle loudly, trying to frighten the
cow away from the (rack. The farm
ers lawyer alno prowl that the cow
was equally attentive to business as
the engineer. In ringing her bell and
exerting herself to scare the engine off
the track. The Jury gave a ver.llct for
the cow. Ex.
