Following is an illustration of the
method of condensing long-winded
articles, as practiced in newspaper
offices. The Chicago Tribune puts
into ii few Hiicm every material point
in President Cleveland's message,
To the cotigresH of the United
SUites: The constitution Is 100
years old. TIio tariff is a tax. You
are neglecting public business. The
fishery question is still unsettled.
Affairs with China and Mexico
need looking after. I have uo'upol-
ogies to, make to" Sackyillc; he's a
chump. Naturalization laws need
revision. Sheridan was a grout J
mui. I am still troubleditboiit the
suiplus. I refer you to the reporls
of the secretaries of the navy and
Interior, and the postmaster-general
and attorney-general for informa
tion pertaining, to their depart
ments, and to the department of
agriculture for anything :you wish
to know concerning sorghum. Let
us bo good.
(J, A. It.
The position of the Grand Annyof
thellqpublic in the late presidential
campaign hits been pretty thoroughly
discussed. An exchange says very
few of these- dofeated candidates
sorehead G. A. It. men uru able to
see that the reason why they were
not elected Is because a majority of
the people who might have voted
for them had thoy been so disposed
preferred to trust their competitors
in the positions they aspired to.
Thoy get it through their heads
after awhile that somebody elaejgot
more votes than thoy, but they can
not bring themselves to believe that
tlio constituencies to which they
appealed have deliberately rejected
them, and so the)' nurse the notion
that there was somo mist'ike width
the people greatly regret and will
gladly rectify if given a chance.
Then having secured a renoui I na
tion and having been beaten itgain,
thoy settle down to the conclusion
that there was a fraud, trickery, or
coercion and that some bad agency
is responsible for their discomlluiro.
Gen. John M. Palmer of Illinois Is
n conspicuous illustration of this
class of victims. lie was formerly
a republican, but when tlut party
weaiied of giving hi:i. what lie
wanted hu went over to the demo
crats, who have been feeding him
on nominations for the seimtorshlp,
governorship and other oillees, far
beyond their reach or ills, lie was
their candidate! for governor .this
year as ho hud been once before,
and ho was beaten this year, when
lit) really expected to bo elected, a
good doil worse titan ho was before.
Tho.iosult is, that instead of accept
ing his defeat as conclusive cvhleJiio
that the people of Illinois do not
want him for governor, lie Jlgurcs
It out that lie was beaten because
tlio G.uV. 11., to which lie belongs,
went Intel; on him ami was used as
a machine to elect ills opponent,
and In. order toshow his disapproval
of Bitch .business he lias "sorrowful
lyliut (indignantly1 demanded Jils
withdrawal card of the pmt to

promptly .and properly given hint

Uinm-ATION l'OH THK COAST.
Important-measures of interest to
the .Southern California coast were
presented Hi the House. General
Vandevcr Introduced n bill to es
tablish a port 6f delivery at Los
Angeles a niucli-nccded and very
useful measure; also a bill to estab
lish a port of entry at Santa Bur
barn; also, another bill appropriating
1200,000 for harbor improvements at
San Diego. Morrow introduced a
bill establishing lighthouses at
Deadmitu's Island, Auucapa Island
and San Miguel Island; at Point
Arguollo, nt Port Harford and at a
point eight miles north of that port.
Tlio appropriations for these objects
amount to $178,000. Light is a
good thing to have, Copccially for a
mariner feeling his watery way
along a dangerous coast.
Tiik failure of the Panama Canal
Company, so far predicted, seems
at lost to have come. The company
has vanquished by Interest. -Its
necessary expenses on the isthmus
have been enormous, and tho ex
penses caused by extravagance, bad
management and fraud have been
at least us great; but all these might
have been borne If thtj money to
meet them could have been raised
on reasonable terms. Hut when
money had to bo borrowed at 80, 70,
fiO, and 110 cents on tho dollar, so
that tho debt was swelled to two or
three times the amount Actually re
ceived, and interest hud to be paid
on the whole, and be paid out of
the proceeds of new limns, each con
tracted on more .ruinous terms than
the bust, Hesh and blood could not
stand the strain.
