A protective tariff leaves the ratio, in
which the value of the joint product of
capital and labor shall be divided between
these two factors in production, entirely
to the joint force of the competition be
tween employers, seeking to hire men.
and the competition between wage
workcrs seeking to earn wages. Actual
wag always must be the means between
these two competitions. The effect of a
protective tariif upon wages is reached
through its effect upon profits, for it b
.only as employers can see their way rea
?onaMy clear to make profits by hiring
men that they are called upon to bin
them at all. JJut profits are a margin
that remaius between cost of production
And .return, or price obtained for product
rand the price obtained of any product i.
in its turn the means between two compe
titions, ju.-t as the rate of wages is, the
rate of wages being itself only the price
of labor determined hy the same econo
mic laws as determiaa all other price.
I'rice is the mean between the compe'i
fiou of all desiring to sell and the eoin
jietion of all desiring to buy. As the
employer going into market with his pro
"duct has its price fixed for him by a
series of competitions to whoe h;W he
submit, if the price falls relatively
0 cost of production so as to threaten or
eliminate An profits, he must cut down
his cot of production, or stop altogether.
Neither trade unions, dynamite, anarchy,
chant v, the single tax, nor csca a pro
tective tariff can directly stay the opera
tion of the tait" of interest by which em
ployers cut clown vaes when profits fall
or that by which thc-v raist :yagrs hg.-iir.
by their inyoluntary competitions ivjn-n
profitsri.se. But . the Labor Tribune
certainly must perceive that such tariff
legislation as would cause Li Aiwet ira the
manufacture of $50,000,000 worth of
iron and steel, now being imported, to be
promptly followed by 100,000,000
worth of ships, $ 70,000,010 worth of
sugar, f 30.000,000 worth of cottons, as
much iii woolens, Jcc, would be inde
pendent factors tending toward coinpcti- I
tion among employers for the hire of men
and insuring u rise in wages relatively to
the condition which will pi vail if th;o
things continue to be obtained by import
ation or not at all. Protection, like the
fisherman's net. affects directly only the
magnitude of the catch, not the terms on
which it shall be divided. Hut the less
the 'catch." the smaller will be each one's

ThecouVty commissioners of Cass county
having called an election to vote for or
against issuing $s0,)00 twenty-year court
house bonds, we dcaireto lay the actual
facts before every properly owner and
voter in the county, relying upon their
intelligent consideration of the same in
casting their vote at the coming election,
June Mh, 18SD.
The total bonded indebtedness of the
county is 100,000, These are the rail
road bonds, and the interest has been paid
as it uctrued. The principal is due f JO,
000 in June of each of theyearsof lH'JO-!l-i2-!:J-!M.
Cash in the sinking fund
to pay these bonds is now $50,000, and
sufficient cash in the other funds to pay
all current expenses. So the real indebt
edness of the county is only $50,000 at
the present time
Total valuation county, 183, $ 4,743,779,
Valuation of Plattsmouth
City and Precinct $1,287,15)1.
Kighty thousand dollars at 5
per cent will cost annually, $1,000.
Xine-tenihs of one mill on the
total valuation will raise $4,207,
More than sufficient to pay the interest
on the bonds.
The average valuation on eighty acres
of land in the county as shown by the
records is about $450, so that the owner
of eighty acres wovld have to pay a
court house tax of about 40 cents, or less,
each year. These figures are based on
the 1S88 assessment. The valuation will
be greater in 18st), by possibly $300,000,
and will increase largely each succeeding
We believe that a new court house
should be built, not only for the sake of
building the same in our city but for the
protection of the records of the county
clerk, county treasurer, county register,
county judge and the clerk of the dis
trict court, iu all of which records almost
every farmer and land owner in the
county is vitally interested.

My canary sings the whole day lonff
Behind his gilded wires;
Shut in from all that birds enjoy
And happy song inspires;
The freedom, grace and action fine
Of wild birds he foregoes.
But spite of that, with lightsoineness
His little heart o'erflows.
"The world is wide, -And
In happy cheer always abide
Why shouldn't If"
I. too, must dwell behind tfce bars
Of toil and sacrifice;
From heavy heart and weary brain
My prayers or songs arise.

And troubles worse than mine.
If aught of comfort I can bring
To them, shall I repine?

My crowning tears and sing beside

The good natured Irishman who wears
budge No. 20S on the Indiana avenue line had
a Kood deal of fun all by himself last Sunday
afternoon. It was 011 one of his down tris
when a tall man with glasses boarded his car
at Sixteenth street and assumed a position on
the rear platform. He regained thereuntil
Twelfth street was reached, &d the'i he took
a seat inside. At Adams street he alighted
The jolly conductor had been chuckling to
iii:iiself since the man had entered the car,
and w hen another passenger stepped on the
platt'oi iu at Monroe street the conductor said.
"Dili you see that Uiqn who got olf at Adams?
Ho ot on at Sixteenth stiW, nnd he took
out his iooketbook, picked a nickel out of it,
handed me the poeketbook and carefully
placed the nickel in his inside pocket Of
course I wondered what he meant, and held
the pocketlook in front of 11:0 for a moment.
He saw it and happened to think what he
hud done. Then he produced the coin and
took the purse. I haven't seen anything so
funny in the absent minded line since a fel-iov.-
handed me two dimes stuck together and
1 gave him fifteen cents in change. He
surely thought ho had got the best of me,
and his pleaded IqqI: amused me greatly."

There was a good natured Irish team

who has enjoyed robust health, because the

present day as well as tho writings of our
novelists do not make ine majority 01 men

DO NOT WANT TO Dili.
"What people are tho most afraid to dief
"Mv own experience, strange as it may
seem, has taught mo that Christian people
are, as a rule, tlio most airaiu 10 uie. aiy
urofession has brought mo into contact witn
all sorts of men, and I have made a study of
death from a psychological standpoint, ana
I have found that the best Christians are the
most willing to stop out of heaven as long as
possible. They all want to get there, but
they're iu no hurry, i he scientinc pniioso
. .ln.r n-lio wei rhs the chances, who knows
that death is inevitable, who recognizes that
there is no way of escape, smco every one De
fore him has had to meet the grim visitor,
meets death as bravely as any. Ho knows
that the necessity of dying is tue penalty 01
living. He regards it from a purely matter
of fuct standpoint, and he is fully aware of
the fact that no argument or theory will
take on its edge.
"I am talking like an agnostic, am I notf
broke iu tho doctor, parenthetically, "but I
am a lieliever in Christianity for all that, and
what I havo told you is tho result of my ex
perience as a physician and quite apart from
my own preferences.
"Sieakiug geuerally," continued the doc
tor, "men of education face death with greater
fortitude than men who aro not educated.
Philosophy has a great deal to do with the
ait of dying, although the Christian religion
has been a great comfort to tho human race
in preparing tho way for death, and in giv
ing hope of a life hereafter amounting in
some cases almost to a realization of a better
country bej-ond the lino of time."
"Are men or women the braver in facing
"Women are almost always pluckier than
men. They endure pain much better. Have
you ever observed how irritable a man is
who is suffering from toothache or neural
gia, but a woman will often suffer without a
murmur. All other things being equal a
woman w ill face death with more calmness
and fortitude than a man, which may ba
partly accounted for from tho fact that the
instinct for life is stronger in a man, and his
habits and surroundings have trained him
not to givo in so easily."
QUICK DEATH THK EASIEST.
""Which is tho easiest kind of death f
"The quickest death is the easiest det:t!i.
In one of the prayers of tho common prayer
book we pray to be delivered from sudden
death, but in reality if a mau is prepared to
die, sudden death is the easist. It is abso
lutely painless, such deaths as result from
apoplexy, a stroke of lightning or heart dis
ease. Death by electricity is easy, much
uasier than people suppose. The punishment
to the criminal consists in the anticipation of
his approaching end, which is displayed in
the anxious eye, the trembling gait, the
quivering lip, and depressed condition gen
erally. I most firmly believe that if a man
were placed on the scafTold, and kept in sus
pense for five minutes he would havo received
all the punishment he required, and if liber
ated would never again lift hi hand against
his brothei- man as long as he lived. Tho
agony in hanging occurs before death and
not at death. In some diseases the moribund
condition lasts for hours, and in cases like
this, where there is no hope for recovery,
death's door is opened and the patient passes
away as quietly as ir going 10 sieep. con
sumptives, for instance (who, strangely
enough, have hope to the very last), very
often die in this sleep, or if inclined to sleep,
just before death they will say, 'Doctor,
please raise the pillow a. little,' and as the
iiea.l is lieing raised there 13 a faint gurgling
ound in the throat and death takes place ap
parently w ithout pain."
"What death do you consider to be the
"I think death from suffocation is, because
tho struggle for breath and the intense desire
to overcome the impediments to breathing is
-omethiiig terriblo to contemplate and still
more terrible to experience. When astudent
at college 1 was very nearly drowned. I was
taken out of the water insensible, and so I
ran speak of this kind of death from experi
ence, because 1 was virtually dead; that is to
say, if I had remained in the water a few
minutes longer the curtain that divides time
from eternity would have simply come down,
and well, the world would have been spared
another doctor, wouldn't itf said he with a
"I had heard previous to this experience of
.nine," he went on, "that drowning was a
very pleasant death, and that drowning per
sons saw beautiful visions as the result of the
circulation of carbonized blood, and I was
waiting for them to occur, but they did not.
I had read that it was a very pleasant sort
of death, but when I came to tho scratch
under the ii-ater" found it anything but
pleasant, and tho remembrance of that ferrl
hle struggle for life in tho wter is, as you
may imagine, among my most vivid recooec
tions." New York Mail and Express.
