1IB nation today Is in an hiio
niuloiiH condition. Messed
with liountoous crops, with
universal peace at homo anil abroad,
with an incomparable development, in
manufactures, wo are in thn midst of an
indiiRtrial paraljsis and financial de
pression unparalleled in our nation's his
tory.'' Thrpo worn tlio opening senten
ces of Congressman George D. Melklo
John, of Nebraska, in his recent tariff
speech in the houso of representatives.
"Ono year ago the prnjfcr for a change
of party was, thiough the votes of a
plurality but not a majority or the elec
tors of this nation, answered, and for
the first time for more than a third of a
century the executive and both
hranchofl of the legislative departments
of the government wero placed in tho
absolute control of tho democratic
party," Mr. Meiklejohn said. "The
American people prior to this 'change of
party' wero enjoying the blessings guar
anteed to them by tho constitution.
Industry, tho great heart of tho arterial
system of trade, was beating normally
and reglularly; her pulsations tilled the
conduits of commerce with tho products
of American labor, American capital,
and American genius. She blessed with
wealth and prosperity the most remoto
parts of tho nation; she fed tho bread
" winneis of tho land with tho produce of
Amorjcan soil and inado a homo market
for tho American farmer; capital had a
Held for investment; labor, employment;
transportation, trade and commerce;
manufacturers, a demand for their pro
ducts. Tho nation was blessed with
universal prosperity, and happinesB and
contentment beamed from tho homo.
Tho maxim of Daniel Webster, that
'Where thero is work for tho hands
thoro Is work for'tho tooth,' was novor
moro fully verilied. This was tho con.
dltion of our republic before tho trans
formation scono of a year ago. 'A
chango of party,' was tho verdict of tho
ballots; tho 'change of administration'
had not yet 'come. Its realization was
four months in tho future. The pros
pect of democratic experimentation and
platform translation began its work of
industrial prostration and commercial
depression. Capital took fright; indus
try moved sluggishly; products of man
ufacturers decreased to tho current do
mand; lubor saw her wages declino and
tho doors of employment slowly close.
Doubt and uncertainty drove our me
dium of oxchungo into hiding; banks
woro forced to realize on securities to
keep up reserves; exports decreased and
contents of bonded warehouses incroasod.
Tho nation for tho tlrst time sinco 18T7
began to taste the unriponcd fruit of
free trudo und that Bweot morsel of
Anglomaniacs, tho markots of tho world.
Who could predict what was in storo
when 'a change of administration' should
comoY"' Other excerpts from Mr.
Melklojohn's speech aro given bolow:
"Thoso who study the logic and rhoto-
ric of democratic platforms and promises
know that liko tho hieroglyphics on tho
monoliths and cenotaphs of Egypt, they
require tho application of a Rosotta
stono for their interpretation and trans
lation. Wo understood porfectly well that
you did not intend to repeal tho 'culmi
nating atrocity of class legislation' and
onact u policy of 'tariff for revenue only,'
or tho ten per cent tux on state bunks.
These threats, however, against tho pol
icy of a third of u century have only
been less damaging and pernicious to
the nation than their enactment and
"Countorirritants in physical diseases
aro used, to produce irritation at ono
point to-roliovo an affection at another.
This principle in bodily infirmities can
not bo applied to national maladies, You
can not inspire fuith uitd hope with sus
pense and doubt. Yqu can not create
confidence and trust with uncertainty
and expectancy. You can niit remove
fear and distrust with objects of terror
and fright. If you would raise tho siege
against American labor, cease firing free
trado shells at tho bulwaiks of American
industries. .If you would have confi
dence und reliance in financial circles
und harmony in monetary affairs, tell
tho nation you did not intend to lepeal
tho tax on state banks; that it was a
mere exhibition of legerdemain to secure
tho support of the southern democracy.
As tho president has failed to refer in
his message to congress to this plank in
tho democratic platform it is reasonable
to presume ho considered it inoouons
desuetude. It jou would answer the
prayer that comes daily from tho mil
lions of American tollers for an oppor
tunity to work for bread, declare that
articles for American consumption shall
be made by American lubor on Ameri
can soil and in American manufactures."
"Tho people have seen beet sugar fac
tories built that turn nut from 50,000 to
75,000 pounds of sugar a day, Thoy
have seen employment given to an army
of agricultuulsts, land values in the vi
cinity of these factories Increase four
hundred fold, cities and towns spring
forwurd into activity undreamed of,
railway fi eights increased, and millions
of additional capital invested in Louis
iaua, Tcvns.'Cnllfornin, and Nebraska,
with millions mora standing ready to
erect factories at Anaheim, Ban Diego
and Westminister, Cal.; at Muscatine
and Sioux City, Iowa; at Omaha and
Lincoln, Nob.; at Spokane, Wash,, and
Syracuse, N. Y. This was tho real ob
ject of tho bounty law. Tho capitalists
and tho planter and farmer have ful
filled their part of tho contract. In tho

Mr. Lapham's adventure at Staunton,
Va., to bo stricken down? Give tho su
gar industry in America tho protection
and encouragement it has had in Europe
and you will have 1,000 sugar factories
producing 5,000,000,000 H)iinds of sugar,
employing 1200 laborers In each factory
or an average of 1,200,000 employes from
whom (,000,000 of our population would
draw their maintenance and sustenance.

prlso 500,000,000 and would add an

is the sister of
tho Into Tom
Robertson, tho bright author of '-Casto"
and its accompanying woll known conio
dies; that she in tho youngest of twenty
two children all Ixirn to tho samo father
and mother; and her father and her
grand-father and her grand-father's
father und his grand-father, besides a
dozen of cousins and aunts, wero. all on
tho stago in their day; that sho was put
upon tho boards when a more child to
play tho part of angelic Eva in "Undo
Tom's Cabin;" that when only a girl sho
played Lady Macboth (in a garment of
her mother's;) that she married William
Hunter Grimston Kendal before sho was
twenty-seven, und that over since then
it has been her boast that her husband
and herself huvo always appeared to
gether on tho dramatic stage.
Mrs. Kendal has indirectly furnished
an interesting reminiscence regarding
her love for her children. It came out
through her allusion to tho reason why
sho refused, in later years, to play tho
leading character in "East Lynn." Tho
part was one which sho was accustomed
to play in tho earlier stago of her pro
fessional career. It wus not until after
her marriage, however, and the loss of
her first child, that she learnt fully to
sympathize with the distiacted mother
of the play. Less than a fortnight after
her boreavemont she had to appear In
tho character beforo a crowded audience
at Hull. Everything, even the name' of
child, served to remind her of her loss,
and in tho thiid act her emotion became
so heart-rending, that she was complete
ly overpowered by it, and tho curtain
had to bo dropped beforo the end of the
act. The effect upon tho audience was
electrical. A womar stood up in tho
pit and cried: "No moro! No moro!"

HEN the fairies danced at tho
birth of the two Norvals of Sew
ard, T, I j. ami Dick, the one
who bestows beauty was not there, or
olso sho was very much pro-occupied.
At any rate tho brothers did not receive
the gift of this fairy, and ihey have had
to struggle through life without the no
companimentof beauty. Neither of them
is what a connoissour would call a hand
some man, und ono has no advantage
over tho other. Hut they have managed
to chisel n very respectable amount of
success out of life nevertheless, and
both are among the state's most promt,
nent, if not its most handsome citizens.
T. L, Norval is chief justice or the Su
premo Court of tho state of Nebraska,
having assumed that dignity since the
tlrst of tho year, and ho has a black
gnateo and a salary of 82,500 per annum.
Ho maintains the dignity of his position
with ease to himself and credit to the
court and state, and ho smokes an un
conscionable quantify of cigais every
day. Judge Norval is past forty as to
age, and ho is also beyond some of his
predecessors on the bench in legal
knowledge. He inclines naturally to
the law and ho consumes the contents
of sheepskins witii the same avidity
that ho devours a fragrant cigar. The
indue is noted among lawyers for his
good legal mind; he is esteemed for this
and personal qualities, and he has a
charming wife and daughter, and Is
thinking seriously of removing from
Seward whore ho has resided for nearly
a qtiartnr of a century, and taking up
his permanent residence in Lincoln.
Which shows that ho is a man of excel
lent taste and judgment. Unlike his
brother Dick ho is not much of a
politician; but ho gets thero just the
samo. Hoforo ho was elected to tho su
promo bouch ho was u district judge.
His record is clour, und ho Is small of
stature, with sharp oyeH and a pleasant
manner. In tho rehabilitation of thn
court since Judge Maxwell's lotirement
there is a strenuous effort being made
to oxpedito tho business and catch up
with tho calendar, and tho chief justice
is leading tho prowessum with commend
iblo vigor. Tho judge addresses himself
very closoly to the duties for which he
draws pay from the state, and ho hasn't
much time for recreation or diversion of
any sort. Ho is opular and ho treats
tho associate justices iib though they
wero entitled to soino consideration.
Wherein ho is somewhat dissimilar lo
tho vcnerablo judge who occupied the
chief justico's chair beforo him. Judge
Norval iB a gentleman and a scholar and

Judge Norval earns a groat deal moro
