Cleveland's fight against Gray
in Indiana, insures that state to the
republicans if the claimant, or any
one of the stuffed prophet's friends
Bewailing about "tariff reform '
and shouting glittering generalities
about an economical administration
of the gOTcrnment, has long since
ceased to fool the people.
Judging from the Journal's tariff
pictures, the editor ot our esteemed
Bryan silver democratic organ
believes that the McKinley tariff
law is responsible for the big corn
crop of last year.
Gorman is the shrewdest politi
cian in the democratic party uni
erally so acknowledged by all
democrats and Gorman says that
"CleveUnd cannot carry New York
and that the democrats cannot elect
their candidate without the Empire
Democratic alleged statesmen
and editors continue to howl for
"tariff reform," but they do not
specify what they want. Changing
three or four items in the three
thousand of the McKinly tariff law
is not much of a reform. What do
you waut gentlemen?
The democratic house is incou
stslent in promptly passing a rigid
Vi.:jce exclusion act and in then
. ohing a bill to take off all duty on
t filthy and disease-infected wool
c . a rs of Asia and the old world,
wnich v. ill be brought to this coun
try to be made over into "cheap''
woolen clothing for American work
iiigmeii. "Now you Hee the effects of that
inonstrasity the McKinley bill-in
this terrible weather. No such
weather would exist if we had a Sil
ver Billy Bryan president and a re
form tariff congress. We tell you
people do not realize the fate that is
in store for them, if the tariff robbers
succeed in electing another presi
dent and defeating the immortal
Bryan" Editors democratic organs
in First district.
Democratic predictions about
high prices as the result of the Mc
Kinley law having failed to be full
fiiled, the democrats are now shout
ing in a chorus that the reason
prices are low is that shoddey is
used. There is not an intelligent
person in Cass county but knows
that uettek goods can be bought
for less money to-day ia Platts
mouth than imiokek goods before
the passage of the present tariff law.
It is the same old story of the last
thirty years democratic predic
tions have failed ta materialize.
Within the next four years the dem
ocratic party will be claiming that
it is the only genuine protective
tariff parly in the country, as it now
claims to have put down the rebel
lion, resumed specie payments,
enacted the secret ballot laws and
rebuilt the navy.
CLADSTONEON "THE THREE P's."
In his review of Mr. Henry Jeph
son's book on "The Platform; Its
Rise and Progress," Mr. Gladstone
has defined the privileges, power,
and relations of the three great
agencies of government by the peo
ple iu a manner worthy the most
progressive and broadest states
man in Europe to day. These three
agencies are thus indicated by Mr.
Gladstone in their historic se
quence: "As three F's were the
watchword of the Irish tenant with
reference to Irish land, and three
R's are supposed to supply the
basis of education for the people,
so in the eighteenth and nineteenth
centuries three P's have denoted the
instruments by which British free
dom has been principally derel-
Ojied and continued. These time
P's are Petition, Press, and Plat
form. Immediately after the re
form act the lirft of these was
chiefly in vogue; and the act for the
emancipation of the slaves was car
ried under the influence of a
national sentiment which owed its
manifestation to this medium. As
time has flowed on the scale of its
use has been contracted; mainly,
perhaps, because it is a method in
volving a large aggregate of trou
ble for those who resort to it. A
considerable time elapsed with
nothing more than gradual growth
in the action of the Press; but after
I the repeal of the stamp duty, and
especially after the repeal of the
paper duty, the sphere of this
action became enormous, and the
newspaper proved itself to be a
mighty agent, both in the sphere of
politics and in the mental training
of the people,
Mr. Gladstone then sketches the
history of the influence of the Plat
form iu England, and it will be
universally conceded that 110 one
can speak with more authority 011
this branch of his subject than the
Nestor of the English Platform to
day. Mr. Gladstone cites instances
when the Platform has been exer
cised in opposition to the Press, in
harmony with it, and points to in
stances iu which it ha triumphed
over the Press, as evidenced iu par
liamentary elections. The Platform,
he says, displays and generates
living energy, quickens sympathy,
increases information, and brings
to bear the whole power of fellow
ehipjin a cause. The power of the
Platform, however, he says, is in
termittent, while the action of the
Press "is continuous and perma
nent as that of Old Time himself."
He does not regard it as desirable
that the country should be continu
ally subjected to the national fever
incident to the bye-elections, a9 it
has been Bince 1887. He signifi
cantly adds: "One supreme effort
is still in progress, but nature is
sure to cry out for remission and
relief. We may reasonably hope
that Press, Petition, and platform
will hereafter be, as they have been
heretofore, combined as harmoni
ously as the figures of the three
Graces, and will contribute, each in
its due measure according to the
calls of the time, toward the consol
idation and progress of free gov
eminent." Such words as these from the
aged but most progressive states
man of England are strong con
trast to the absolutism toward
which Germany's young kaiser
leans so strongly. Though the lib
erty of the press has essentially
been abused, 011 the whole in
England and in America it has
been used in such a way as to con
serve political rights and become
the most efficient aid to progress.
For a number of years. I have
been subject to violent attacks of
inllanitnitory rheumatism which
generally lasted about two months,
On the first of this month I was at
tacked in the knee and suffered se
verely for two days, when I prenred
a botlleof Chamberlain's Pain Balm
and it relieved me almost instantly.
I therefore most cheerfully reco
meiid it to those who are similarly
afflicted everywhere. R. D. Whit

To bring borne to the mind the stu
pendous sue of the colonial oak, u the
kauri pine of New Zealand has been
called, it must be compared with the
largest trees in these islands. In Eng
land there are several elms 70 feet high
and 80 feet in girth; oaks HO feet high
and with trunks 40 feet in girth; and in
Scotland there is an ash W foet high and
19 feet in girth. But these are regarded
a extraordinary and grow in solitary
The average girth of trees in Britain is
not more than 19 feet, nor the arerage
height above 00 feet. But ta New Zea
land thtiM are miles of kauris whose av
erage height is uot less than 100 feet,
and whose girth ia not lesa than 00 feet
or 40 feet Tbe largest kauri yet discov
ered waa 70 feet in girth, and tba trunk
was 200 feet high. Louden Globe.

The chief source of amusement for
the book plate collector is to be found
in the grotesque errors made on ar
morial book plates by persons who are
either ignorant of the rutlimeuta of
heraldry or careless as to their meaning.
Thus many ladies will bave helmets,
mottoes and crusts on their plates to
none of which are they entitled; while
some men will simply alter the name 011
their father's plate (say from John But
ler to tiainuel Butler), and think them
selves eutitled to continue to bear the
arms of their parents impaled, thus
making it appuu that Suiutiel Butler
hud married his own mother. London
