The democratic malority In the houe has dis-idisl to "push things" on the repeal of the federal elections law. Th-re Is no possible reason why his law should le r'xntlel at all, un less It is the d iiierute intention of th democrats to miike easy the way to fraud In the election of rcpresenta lives in congress and of presidential electors. Hut, even in that case there Is no need of rushing a repeal bill through at the extra se-slon, as there are no elections in any state this fall which the federal law would effect The nvcraire democrat a; peart to think there is something terrible in the federal elections law. A refer cm to tne sections oi me reviseii statutes of the 1'nlted States relating to congressional and presidential elec tions would certainly dissipate any such idea. These sections provide that when a repreaentatlve in congress is to la1 elected In any city having more than L'o.ooo inhabitants, two crsons may, by application to the Judge of the circuit court, secure the appointment of smiervisors of election. Thesame can lie done in any congressional dis trict on iielition of ten ix-rsons, but this Is seldom resorted to. These au iM-rvisors have no powers except to see that voters are not Intimidated and to canvass the vote. It should be remarked in passing that there are to lie two su ei visors in each district, and that they are required to be of different abuse of question. political the law The Is al.vi parties, making nuite out of the marshal of a district authorised, up on similar petition, to appoint deputy marshals to preserve the peace on election day, and see that the rights of citizens at the jxills are not interfered with. That is all there is of this law, except the penalties pre scribed for their violation. The greatest objection that any honest citizen can bring against this law is that it has not proved strong enough to make much impression on Itourhou scoundrclism. It has sel dom lieen used, except in New York city, where it failed to check the tide of Tammany's fraud. Every one familiar with the inside history of the presidential flection' of lSSl knows that the electoral vote of the ulnte of New York was given to Cleveland by one of the boldest and most un lushingfrauds in our annals. In certain election districts, chielly in Brooklyn, thousands of votes for Hutler were counted for Cleveland, and thus James O. Itlaiue was cheated out of the presidency he had fairly won. Hutler asserts, in his book, that he had proof of this. The bitterness of the Tam many crowd in the mctroolis against "Johnny" Davenport Is liecause he invoked this law to prevent a repeti tion, in Ihhh, of the wimo scoundrel ism, which was fully intended. Had it lieen carried out, it would have lieen an useless crime, as Cleveland was elected without it. The republicans of the house do not expect to prevent the reeal of this law. The tight they are making Is to direct the attention of the coun try to the motives of the democracy in wiping it from the Matuto books. The execution of that law has never prevented a single legal voter from casting his ballot as he desired, ant having it counted as cast. No demo crat can produce a single Instance w herein it was or could have lieen used us un Instrument to nullify the vote of a single citizen. The debate will draw Kipular attention to the measure, and to the purposes behind its resnl. Who are the men who are leading the democratic forces against it? David H. Hill, the vilest machine Hilitician aud iliticnl Ihms whoever disgraced the state of New York; Sen ator (ionium, of Maryland, who rules Haltinmre Mlitics by the same In famous methods; and 1 1 in southern honrlions in congress, who are oj jaised to any and every provision for an honest, Tree election and a fair count. The ticoplc of the United States will do well to devote Home at tention to the progress of nffairs in the house while the bill to reenl the law is under consideration. It will bring them to a realizing sense of the fact that the democratic party Is an organization which relies ujion fraud to maintain itself in powrr. Toledo Wade. Kentucky potatoc.

Frank Siddall, the Philadelphia soap man, Is credited with saying; " I have con li iks my advertising entirely to the newspajHTs. The man who docs not read a news paper din's not use soap." This Is the opinion of one successful man, who has proven the benefits of judicious newaiKr advertising. DEMOCRATS FAVOR CORK! TTI0X. A few day ago when Hie rules were up for discussion, the republi- cans of the house of representatives argued strongly for u provision to prevent filibustering, and the demo - cratic majority ersitently opixiscd it. Last wtfk the republicans were tempted to resort to filibustering. The majority were very anxious to bring forward the Tucker bill, which Is designed to sweep away every thing iu the nature of federal super - vision of elections. These laws have! been on the statute book many years, and have proven very useful lu the detection and prevention and punish- ment of fraud In New York and else where. Hut attempts to extend their operations everywhere, so as to secure a free ballot and a fair count In all parts of the union, rousts) the strongest hostility in the south, and it was made an Issue In the last cam paign. Federal suiervision is s;xk- en or liy democrats lu the house as though it were designed to prevent freedom of voting aud keep people away from the polls, it would la- ust as correct to say that the police of New York city are designed to re strict the freedom of its citizens and prevent them from going uhoiit the streets and transacting their busi ness in a legitimate way. Of course every Insly knows that the function of the police is to preserve the peace and to secure to every law-abiding citizen his rights. It is only tin guilty who are afraid of the police and would sunprcH them. There is no constitutional reason why federal su per vision should not la' extended to federal elections, ftnd there are most excellent reasons why it should lie, In New York city the corrupt demo cratic machine removed the safe guards of pure election last yir, anil would have had everything their own way except for the federal su iH'rvlslon that was exercised. When this is removed, according to the will of the present democratic con- irress. there win ne practically no way of guarding against extensive frauds. It is certainly not in the in terest of either the purity or the freedom of the ballot box that the democrats in congress are now pro poning rcjieal. New, York Indcpen- lent. Saved by her lilhl. Such love is the power unto salva tion, Loth for the individual and for society. A mother was arraigned in a police court charged with drunken ness. She was guilty. The Judge tlned her fi, In default of which she was to go to the Island. A little ragged urchin stood by and heard the sentence. He cried to the Judge, "Wait a minute, Judge, I'll get the money." Ho rushed out to all the places of business where he was known. He secured from all his friends all tho money possible. He told them of his mother's difficulty; that she was to go to the Island. He secured t2A. He camo back and poured the money out on the judge's csk and then said bravely to him, It's all I could get now, Judge, but ' you will send me to tho island for her, I'm not so large, but I'll slay longer and work out the balance." Tho HXr woman, overwhelmed by this evidence of her child's devotion, rose and snatched him to her heart, while she cried lietween her soIm and tears that she would Ik? a lietter woman from that day for the boy's sake. The udge remitted the flue, and from that hour she was a changed woman. "A new commandment give I unto you, that ye love one Knottier, even as I have loved you." ' Oreg-ou'n Dig Apples. Dr. J. 11. Cardwell, president of the State Horticultural Society has re turned from Chicago, where he went to sh the great fair, and esiecially to visit the horticultural display and stsj for himself how Oregon's pro ducts compared with those from other states. He is well pleased with the showing made, and says Oregon is ahead, and will certainly receive tho prize for the liest prunes and plums. Some very fine fruit ha Ixs'n sent on of late, and he is very desirons that fruit-growers throughout the state shall send in the best specimens they can find to le forwarded. There was a great ileal of good naturod rivalry among ex hibitors as to who should exhibit the largest apple. Idaho, Kansas and Arkansas led, the latter standing at the head with a twenty-ounce apple, measuring fifteen and one-half inches in circumference. Of course Dr. Cardwell was certain that Oregon could beat that, and has forwarded a numlier of flftis-n and one-half Inch apples, and tine measuring sixteen inches around. Dr. Iewi. who '! in charge of the Oregon exhibit, was so certain that he could get a bigger apple than the largest shown that he had a big rooster prepared carrying a sbwmer in his bill, tin w hich is in scribed, "Come down Arkansas." Dr. Cardwell say he hasst'en Oregon apples weighing thirty-eight ounces, and he is in hope to be ablo to tind one measuring twenty Inches around. Every orchardist in the state should la? on the lookout for the biggest apple and send forwnrd the lt he can tlnd. THE EXT CICLONE. Under tlii luMiling the San Fran ciseo Bulletin dicus the political ' situation at Iciiirth. Among other thing it ay : j '-It looks as if the next political cycbn c would strike with great force ' the present administration. The warnings at present are mostly from the democratic side. The country is already expressing its disappoint incut with an emoliasis that cannot 1 le mistaken. The Cleveland ad ministration tisik office with the promise to give the country a greater f degree of pros rily. In tlx month Jhe securities of the country had depreciated more than HIHI,(HMI,(HM(, The customs receipts lias fallen off many millions. The tidal wave that carried the present adminis tration into power has receded. It has 1c It It hard aground. This change is still going on. If demo cratic organs turn about and attack the party in power, what then? It cannot be expectisl that rcpuhliiims will t n-ii to its support. "For six months the party in power has been u trial. During the critical period it lias done nothing except to create distrust. It has a majority iu both house and a demo cratic president. If tliere Is any virtue in these facts they ought to give coiilldeiice to the country. Hut it has followed that as soon as this clear majority was ascertained conll dciicc began to decline. Meanwhile it is keeping up It assaults on repub lican principles everywhere. "It is worth while to contrast the attitndt' of the republicans toward the present administration with that of the democrats toward that of the last republican administration. There is a radical difference. The Harrison administration came in when all the resources of tho demo cratic party In congress were em ployed to nullify every .. measure brought forward by the republicans. The aim was to harras and discredit tht party in power. The opposition was factious beyond precedent. The purpose was to kill every measure brought forward by filibustering tactics. This tierce party war has passed Into history. Now the party in power Is asking for the tolerance and 'support 'that it refused to the republican administration. The at titude of tho party out of power is quite different. It is not eonspring to wreck the administration, and does not employ any Illibiistering tactics to cmbarras't it. It has even gone so far on one or two occasions as to help pull it out of the mire. 1'he administration will need to I coutimiously call on the republicans to help save it from the vagaries of its own platform. While it is nomindly committed to free trade it would go down in a political cyclone if it were to carry such a measure into full effect. Democratic organs art- today asking for a repudiation of the Chicago platform to the extent that particular industries In I heir several states must have protection. There is not, for instance, a demo cratic organ of any Influence in California that has taken ground against the protection of fruit, wool, sugar aud other great local Industrial interests. Those exceptional cases are occuring all over the country. What doe it mean? Just this, that while the party is bound by its own platform it has no confidence in it. Free trade, as it has lcen formulated, could not lie carried out today with out disrupting the party. "The country Is Itcginning to look once more to the republicans to save it Irom the worst results or democratic rule. The latter has tarn looking in the same direction for similar help. And this change of attitude lias lecii brought about in a little more than six mouths. In this light it is not difficult to forecast the changes that will occur in the next three year.." Weight of Cola and Hills. Said Mr. C. K. Stout, of the treas-J ury office, with fMiMM) or IO,000 in double eagles at his elbow: ''How many (1 bills do you think it would take to weigh as much as one of these coins?" The reporter considered a moment and made a guess. "It takes just twenty-seven, unless the bills are (rimmed close. Twenty-eight new ft bills always weigh a little more than a double eagle. Ifcui't you liflieve It. Just wait." He disitpiicared in the vault for a few minutes and presently emerged with a package of brand new II bills in his hand. Then he counted out twenty-seven of them and said to the reporter: "Choose any coin you will." The reporter chose a coin, which Mr. Mont put on one of the s-ale pans. Then he put the twenty-seven fl bills on the other pun. The long needle that moves on the Index showtsl that the beam was almost level.

The tlnanclal stringency Is over, says the Toledo Blade. The New York banks are receiving so linn money from the banks of the lntcrii that they don't know what to d with it. Their vaults are full of idle funds. It is a tiiestion w hat to d wllh this accumulating volume of money. The First National bank ol that city has already w ithdrawu half a million of government ImxxU, de posited In the treasury to secure cir culatiou, surrendering that amount of its bank-notes; and other national banks will probably follow the sunn course. The reason of this over-supply of funds Is titsy to understand. The scare is over, ami tht enormous sums which were hoarded bv timid de- iMisitors have lecn nsleiMtsited. But business has not recovered as quickly as did finance. I here would have been millions of dollars used in build lug this season, bail the pinch not come. All these project are, a a rule, abaudoixsl. It is too late in the season to Is'gin extensive operations. i'hen the industrial world has short- ned sail, awaiting the tariff tinker ing of the democratic congress; the wholsalersand retailers have followed suit, and as a constsiuence they do not need the extensive loans they would ordinarily require. The banks of the interior thus tlnd less than tht usual demand for money, ami send their idle funds to New York for in vestment. This state of things proves clearly that tliere is plenty of money in the country. Any man who lias any thing of value to sell can get tht' money for It. If he cannot sell It, 1. is because there is no demand for tin article, whatever it may Is not lie- cause there is not money enouirh. The men who are shouting for "more money" are those who cither have nothing to sell w hich anyliody wants, or iMfttusc they connot give good se ll rity for loans.
