TnK net decrease in the public debt
during the month of August, as an
nounced by the official statement, was
only $833,073. The method of compu
tation ia on the "less cash in the treasury '
plan. A comparison with the statement
published a month ago, however, shows
that the 4 J per cent bonds have been cut
down nearly $13,000,000 in the interval,
and the 4s more than 7,000,000. or about
$20,000,000 in all. This puts an altoge
ther different face on the matter, and

although he had been unauimously
elected chairman of the county ceotrnl
committee, was a member of the state
central committer, and the congressional
committee, yet all this, instead of satis
fying, only seemed to whet the appetite
of the valiant bourbon, and he was nomi
nated for representative as a running

confidence when we state that he inn

Jacob Trietsch, for commissioner, is a
strong nomination and will make a lively
race for th it office. II. D. Travis, for
county attorney, is an able lawyer, resi
ding in Weeping Water, but he will not
gather the luscious plums of office this
time. All in all the ticket is not one
that appeals to the masses for support,
but is of the aristocratic cold blooded
order that will be snowed under at the
polls in November.
In his speech at Oxford, on Saturday
McKeighan referred to that portion of
sacred history wherein the Lord cam

amounts of golden treasure of the Egyp

distribution of the wealth of our nation
might be approved by the Lord today.

PROPOSED ALASKAN EXPLORA
TION. Inter Ocean.
By all the powers of diplomacy, as
lately exhibited in the masterly "conduct
of the Behring Sea question by Mr. Blaine,
our government i9 stoutly defending its
seal interests on our far northwestern
coasts. The seal is part of the wealth of
our own "dark continent," and we do
well to protect such property. If the
fringe is so valuable what of the whole
garment? Alaska is truly the terra in
cognita of American geography. That its
shores are grandly beautiful and pictur
esque our incresing army of :ourists
thither testify; that it is unrevealed ter
ritory such few topographic expeditions
a are sent there give proof enough.
Grant that it is a country we must know,
and, if nature favor, settle and develop,
and we are come to a spot where we say,
"This is a national matter. What will
the government do about it?"
Even now the government is being
asked to do something; in short to make
into its unknown interior the most scien
tific explorations. The people directly
interested in the prosecution of so ad
vanced a work are General Cutcheon,
chairman of the military committee of
the house; Ciptain P. II. Ray, uf the
Eigth United States Infantry; Lieuten
ant L. W." Kenon, of the Sixth United
States Infantry, late of General Crook's
staff; and ex-fficio, if not personally, the
secretary of war. It is proposed that an
expedition, led by Captain Ray an.l Lien
tenant Kennon, consisting of from fifty
to one hundred enlisted men, guidi h, etc.,
and accompanied by a corps of txerts
in astronomy, topography. gel ho
togniphy, etc., iml!, by steam, r the
Yukon, penetrate into the unx in-
terior of that vast possession of nearly
600,000 square miles. Making soma
point on the Yukon a base of supplies,
the expedition would spend at least thrte
years in getting a scientific knowledge of
Alaska. To equip such a party with the
proper outfit for bo extended and accu
rate surrey it would cost about $100,000.
At least one valuable discovery which
such an expedition would make would
be as to the susceptibility cf those hyper
borean latitudes to agricultural develop
ment. Upon the face of the schema at
least this project promoted by General
Cutcheon and others has much to com
mend it to popular indorsement.

It appears from an interesting table of
statistics just issued by the Interstate
Commerce Commission that the railroads
of this country now gie employment to
704,743 workmen, which implies support
for at least 3,000,000 persons. The mag
nitude of the railway interest, and its
important relation to the general welfare
are thus forcibly indicated.
The Indiana democrats have adopted
the longest platform of the season, and

000 within the last eight years and that
they are now vainly trying to sell $G00,

The Newport, Ky., branch of the
Addyston Pipe and Steel Work9 will this

be twelve feet four inches long. The
thickness will be one and one-eishth
inches. The weight of each section will
be bx tons. The ladle used in making
the cast will hold nine tons of molten
metal. .The pipe goes to Milwaukee to
be used in obtaining a water supply from
the lake. Eight hundred lengths are to
be made, or 4,800 tons.
One of the favorite "arguments" made
by the young Mr. O'Bryan and other wise
men here in the west in favor of a re
form here in the tariff is a statement of
the enormous wealth of Mr. Carnegie and
an enumeration of the good things that
the pig iron millionaires sometimes have
for dinner. They fancy that this sort of
thing is so convincing that it ought to
end the debate.
It will be noticed that these orators
abstain religiously from mentioning the
profit made in the iron and steel busi
ness in England. At the annual meet
ing of the British iron and steel institute
mention was made of a company in Shef
field that had made profits enough to re
turn sums equal to its entire capital every
two months. This concern bad no inter
est in patents and yet the capital was
returned eighty-one times in twelve
years that had elapsed since its organi
zation. When the iron and steel men of Amer
ica begin to make such profits it will be
time to talk about adopting some means
of choking them off before they absorb
the entire country. Lincoln Journal.

The democratic papers, neither north
nor south, feared bayonets at the polls
last January, because tlity were demo

interest of fnir and honest elections. The
bayonets at Jackson, Miss., on Jan. 6
were for the tame purpose that the con

The first tariff ever levied in America
was retaliatory. It worked like a charm
and resulted in bringing John Bull on
his knees in supplication before us and
he is still there in a pitiable attitude
crying out: "We'll never do so again if
you'll just let up." And now a threat of
retaliation from this country has found
its way into France, and has resulted in
causing all the leading journals and
statesmen of that country to advocate
the immediate and unconditional repeal
of the prohibitory tariff on American
pork. Wilber Republican.
Republicans haye excellent grounds
for asking the people of the country to
continue them in control of the house of
representatives. See the important
measures which the house has passed at
this session; the tariff bill, the silver bill,
the federal election bill, the national
bankruptcy bill, the bill relieving the
supreme court, the bills admitting four
new states, the original package bill, the
meat inspection bill, the agricultural re
lief bill, the bill against adulterated
food, the anti-trust bill, the public lands
bill, and hundreds of minor bills. As
soon as the republicans obtained control
of the house the prosperity of the country
began to inbrease, and so it will continue
to do as long as they retain that control.
