THE OFF ICIAL PAPER OF GILLIAM
The fundamental cause of the
present hard times, says the S. F.
Post, is the fact that speculation in
land has run bo high that business
cannot prosper and bear the bur
dens of land values. The whole
civilized world practically has been
a ''boom town" on a large scale.
The boom has reached the bursting
point. The strain of land values
on business is too great to be borne.
Hence the hard times. Now there
is one of two things, or perhaps
something of both, that must occur
before the hard times end. Either
the boom must burst, so that busi
ness can resume upon a lower level
as to charges for land; or else some
tremendous impetus must be given
to business which will enable it to
go on aud prosper upon the present
high plan of land values. The
Wilson bill might give the impetus.
If there is free trade enough it will,
Free trade would make business
spring into activity for a time.
But if that bill does not give us
free trade it will give to business
the necessaay impetus, and. in that
case, we shall have ,to wait for the
end of hard times until we see in
our daily real estate reports a very
marked decline in the value of land.
Col. Watterson, the stalwart edi
tor of the Louisville Courier-Journal
and the chief architect of the
free trade plank in the' Chicago
democratic platform, is a good
story teller. "The Wilson bill,"
Bays Col. Watterson, "reminds me
of an incident that once happened
in Louisville. A well-known local

I think called draw poker and
when the opportune moment ar
rived the Louisville man dealt the
stranger four jacks and himself four
queens. The betting began, and
when all their money was up and
came to a showdown the stranger
displayed four kings. "Take the
money stranger," gasped the aston
ished native as he fell in a fit.
Take the money! But that wasn't
the hand I dealt you." So with the
Wilson bill. It is not the hand the
Chicago convention dealt the demo
cratic party and which the people
of the United States backed with
It is reported from Memphis that
the Knights of Labor are about to
embark on a campaign having for
its object the deportation of the
negroes of this country to some
part of Africa. Should the Knights
undertake this job they would have
little time or money for anything
else. There are 9,000,000 negroes
in the United States. J Let someone
compute the cost of transporting
to Africa even the natural increase
of this number of people, and he
will see how absurd the proposition
of the Knights is. The negro is in
America to stay. The thought and
time bestowed upon fantastic pro
jects of the kind named above
would be more profitably expended
in devising methods of educating
the negro and making him a useful
member of the society of which he
is and is destined to remain a part.
The gold fields of Africa are go
ing to cut a, considerable figure in
any discussion of the coinage prob
lem of the world. Note the follow
ing figures compiled by Mr. More
ton Frewen, who is perfectly famil
iar with the gold mining industay
in the dark continent which gives
its annnal output in ounces for the
past five years:
1893......... ....... 1,478,372
As this is worth about $16 per
ounce, it is at once seen that there
is a large addition made yearly
from this new source to the world's
supply of the precious metal. And
as Africa is largely unexplored, it
is altogether probable that new
fields await the gold seekers.
Not long ago a member of con-
.. JQ,.i.J at w- kin- '
gress declared at one of the tables ;
that he had arranged for a $3000
contingent fee that day, and an
other actually; displayed $500 in
bills, which he had received for
promoting a patriotic measure in
congress. The reason can be seen,
now, why some people are making
such an effort to become congress
men. Congressman John Sherman
of Ohio who, on a salary of $5000 a
year and spending $6000, has man
aped to accumulate a fortune of
f'2,000,000. -Washington Times.

prosecuted Mr. Parsons, and as to the
questionable part he performed in the
cattle-stealing eases. He has "got his
foot in it" and in his weak effort to try
to get out of tbe mess he only makes
himself doubly rediculous in the eves of
the public. The people are all ''onto
him," and no amount of such rot as his
paper was filled up with last issue will
save him from the censure he so justly
merits and deserves from the public.
The Globe is correct in everything it
stated, and further comment is unneces
sary. He seems to have forgotten that
at the time of the preliminary examina
tion he shamefully abused Justice Don
aldson or binding the boys over to the
grand jury, stating in the Journal that
"there wasn't an iota of evidence to
show that the Ooys were guilty," etc.
The jury took a "different view of the
If luck is not on your side you are not
very apt to accomplish very much. An
exchange bears this assertion out in the
ensiling: Some years ago four sons of a
Connecticut farmer were married in the
same month. The old gentleman, like
the father in the fairy tale, called them
all up and promised $5000 to the one who
would first present him with a male
grandchild. At the present time the
eldest son has four daughters, the second
son is childless, the third has three
daughters, the fourth two. The old uian
has raised the bounty to $10,000 for a
boy, and the results are eagerly awaited
by a large circle of friends.
According to a recent decision of tbe
courts, a man who wants to go faster
than some one who is ahead of him on
the road, has a right to pass. If he is
prevented by the other man and an ac
cident occurs through the latter's inter
ference, the obstructionist is responsible
for tbe damages. In the eyes of the law
no man has a right to infringe on the
rights of another man, or check him in
passing. - '

Black Hills region is said to be 52 miles

There are streams, waterfalls, and 37
