Ox November 7, the day of the great
Democraic wake, Thurman will have the
laugh on Cleveland. The " Old Roman '
wrote no letter of acceptance. Globe
President Cleveland vetoed another
widows pension bill on Friday, and thus
reiterated his well-known opinion that
the surplus should not be reduced by
voting money for the support of women
whose husbands went to the war and got
killed, instead of sending substitutes.
With a cui of free coffee I drink
to the health of the democratic party.
R. Q. Mills.
Who made coffee free? What party
took the duty off coffee? The republican
party. If the democrats had their way
a duty would be again placed on tea and
coffee, the sugar duty would be increased,
and the duty on every article produced
in this country that is to sny, every
duty thtt protects any American pro
ducer or worker would be cut down be
low the reyenue point, or swept away
altogether. This is the sort of friendship
for American industry which the demo
cratic party entertains.
- The London Iron and Coftl Trades
Review recently said: "Our tin plate.
are chiefly sent to the United St-ites.
which in fact takes tp thirds of all wi
send abroad, and it is a source of muc h
bitterness of spirit among the rank pro
tcctionists of the ,tatis that the govern
ment will not there put on sucn a" pro
hibitive duty as will effectually exclud
British tin plates an I enable American
manufacturers tj carry on the produc
tion The manufacture is confined to
South Wales and a few mills in Stafford
fihire. and in the first named district the
business has seen a wnderful devolment
of late years."
This "wonderful development" has all
been at the expense of this countiy.
When did the fathers of the American
republic announce the doctrine that it is
the busing of our government to inact
tariff law3 which will build up English
and Welsh industries and preyent the de
velopment of American industries? .
We clip the following from the report
of Conml Hotchkiss, of Ottowa, Canad .
made to the state dparetnicnt, Aug. 31st,
18 iS; which shows that if the tariff is
ta ;en lf of luiiibjr it will not be any
lower tha it is at prcs.-nt:
There is no dispute that the American
manufacturer controls the making of
pricei. In doing thi lis is not influenced
br the CmadUn supply in any degree.
If the duty of $2 is removed it will not
affect thu American price, because it ha
never ieen a factor and will still be un
fclt. No lotvW price will prevail in the
United 8Ut-s than' heret f .re, and
no different net results will ha exper
market at $2 less per thousand, and will
obtain for it the same as the American
docs, so that the net result of the Cana
dian manufacturer will he a clear gain
of the f 2 which the American Govern
ment has remitted. This additional net
result to the Canadian manufacturer will,
however, be of very brief duration.
I am confident that not a May pay-day
will pass before a public notice will is
sue in effect that a further increase in an
nual and timber dues has been made an
order in ccuncil, in sums sufficient to ab
sorb the $2 per thusand into the provin
WHAT THE "SOLID SOUTH" WAR
COST IN LABOR.
It may be -assumed that at a minimum
the cost of suppressing the rebellion was
$8,000,000,000. It was, therefore, $1 135,-
000.000 a year for seven years, It has
bee a held that the maximum product of
each person occupied for gain in 1880
could not have exceeded $600 worth;
labor and capital were at lcsst one-third
more effective during and since the year
180 than during the period of war and
reconstruction. If then we value one
man's labor from 1801 to 1SG8 inclusive
at $300 a year, the work of war required
the unremitting labor of 2,170.000 men
for seven years, cither in two armies or
in sustaining them. At $400 each, an
estimete probably nearer to the mark at
that time, the measure would be the con
stant work of 2,8:37,500 men each year
for seven years. The average population
of tha period was 25,000,000, of whom
not over oue in five could be considered
an able-bodied man of arm-bearing age.
The cost of liberty, therefore, consisted
in actual arduous work at tho risk of
life for seven years of one man of arms-
bearing age in evey three. Edward At
kinson in the October Forum.

His manner grows so surly;
No matter where we chance to meet,
Or whether late or early,
'Tis just the same; he cannot stay,
And barely answer a 'good-day.' "
Now this is a sad case of misconcep

is at fault, but his liver. He can't ap

What Am I To Do?
The symptoms of biliousness are .un
happily but too well known. They differ
in d liferent individuals to some extent.
A bilious man is seldom a breakfast eater.
Too frequently, alas, he has an excellent
appetite for liquids but none for solids
of a morning. His tongue will hardly
bear inspection at any time; if it is not
white and furred, it is rough, at all
The digestive system is wholly out of
order and diarrhea or constipation may
be a symptom or the two may alternate.
There are often hemorrhoids or even loss
of blood. There may be giddiness and
often headache and acidity or flatulence
and tenderness in the pit of the stomach

HIS ITUMAXE HOBBY.
A LOVER OF, HORSES PREACHES
AGAINST THE CHECK REIN.
Carrying an Oil 1'alntiiis lu Ills Hand He
Goes About tho Streets lecturing Drir
ent, and Showing Them the Cruelty of
High Cheeking Experienec.
"Down with the check rein!"
Such is the war cry chosen by a gentle
man of Scandinavian extraction whose
name is C. W. Petersen. On Sundays,
and on week days, too, ho may be seen
at various street corners talking to coach
men, teamsters and owners of horses. He
holds an oil painting in his hands mid
shows it to the neoplo he addresses as an
illustration of his arguments. Tho picture
represents a horse, a swan and a man,
checked up high, and bears tho
"Vfhen under high pressure of low pride
try tho check rein on yourself."
Mr. Petersen is laughed ut and jeered
at by the people he addresses Ilo is often
taken for a crank and told roughly to
mind his own business, but with tho
obstinacy and perseverance of Peter tho
Hermit, ho goes on preaching a crusade
against the check rein. He is ono of those
characters who cannot Ijo discouraged by
obstacles, and who, having once taken up
an idea, will follow it to tho end.
"Laugh at me, take rne for f fool," Mr.
Petersen says, "but I will stick to my
business, and shall denounco tho check
rein whenever there is a chance."
Mr. Petersen is not a member of tho
Humane society. Ilo is no professional
friend of animals. In fact, ho minds his
own business every workday in tho week.
But as soon as he feels Hmsclf ut liberty
to spare an hour or two ho takes his pic
ture and goes out on the street to carry
on ills eccentric propaganda. lie is a
friend of the horses, and ho sullera when
he sees them suffer.
REGARDLESS OP COMFORT.
"Fashion Is the curse of this age," said
Mr. Petersen; "people will follow it re
gardless of comfort. They will put
mountains on their backs and call it the
bustle. They will torture themselves in
order to comply with certain forms de
clared to be the fashion. When people
torture themselves I do not care. Let
them suffer, they ourht to know better.
I then think to myself. liut when 1 see
helpless animals tortured for the sake of
complying with ridiculous demands of
fashion, 1 get Indignant and cannot stand
It. "The horse is one of the most beauti
ful animals, because of his fine propor
tions and graceful, curved outlines. Now
look at that picture. What do you see
there? You see the laws of nature vio
lated. Yon see a machine put up on the
horse in order to do away with the curved
line his arched neck forms.'
"That is the way I begin my conversa
tion with the people handling horses and
using the check rein.
'1 tell them that this check rem is not
only disfiguring the horse but also injur
ing bis health. It robs him of comfort, it
makes him nervous, and he can't see
anything, because of being forced to look
upward unto the sky. Then I point to
the swan, and ask the coachman what
that noble bird would look like if a check
rein would be put over her head- Then I
point to the checked up man, and ask the
coachman to tell me how lie would feel if
he were checked up in a like manner.
' 'How would you feel, man? I say.
The first few minutes you would proba
bly endure this constraint v.ithout much
complaint. But then you would begin to
kick. Lu a short time your neck would
begin to ache, aud your mouth would be
tilled with blood from tho fruitless efforts
to get the head down. You would be
come restless and begin to toss your head
just as your horse is doing it now. How
would you teel if, while the sun were
blinding your eyes, with a burden to draw
or carry, unable to see wucro to step, you
were wrapped into a run, into a ditch or
depression in the rough street pavement?
Would you feel comfortable? That &
why you often see fine horses harnessed
to elegant carriages paw vigorously,
champ the bit, toss the head, and turn
the neck. They want to loosen the check,
lower the head, and get a rest.'
HOW THE DRIVER TAKES IT.
"The driver smilo3 or laut-Ls, or stari-
fellow, and goes
lie tiiinKs I am a queer
on to explain thiit he
would not mind loosening the check, hut
the people who employ him were opposed
to it, want more style, and so on.
" 'Well, then, 1 tsav, 'call your people s
attention to the fact tiiat the horses are
being tortured by the check rein. Tell
them that the horses would be hilled in a
short time because of the billy fashion.'
'I thus go on lecturing. Often the
drivers and coachmen really follow my
advice and remedy the thing. But often
the people are stubborn and do not care
to listen to what I say.
"I have discovered that my painting
helps me a good deal in my work. 1 took
it one Sunday to tho People's church at
McVicker's. There was a long row of
carriages with line horses standing in
front of the theatre. Th? horses were
all checked up. I showed the pieturo to
the coachmen. They laughed and Cred
at me all kinds of silly remarks. Finally
a young couple drove up in a carriage to
the theatre. The horse was restless. I
showed my picture to the voting gentle
man and explained to him the ivaiuu cf
the horse's restlessness. The young gen
tleman thought he had a fool from the
insane asylum before him. The uni
