Eight ballots were taken before
the republican presidential candi
date was selected in 1888, but one
ballot is all that will be taken in
It is true, as a New York contem
porary remarks, that "a public man
in this country is lost when he
becomes an object of ridicule."
There is Sockless Simpson, for
instance and Grover Cleveland.
SINCE the Chilean imbroglio has
been settled, the English papers are
beginning to speak well of Minister
Egan. It is strange how time
works wonders, as it has only been
a few weeks since they could
hardly find mean things enough
to say of him.
There are a few democratic
papers that are trying to make
political capital out of Gen. Alger's
war record, but the general has
nothing to fear, as one who was
steadily promoted for meritorious
conduct from captain to brigadier
general has nothing to fear at this
A Democratic exchange calls
them "Jim and Ben." But that
dosen't alter the fact that no other
political partjr has such a safe
political team. With "Jim and
Ben" as wheelers the load can not
be piled so high that it will stick in
the mud. Uncle Sam's boj-s know
a good team when they see it.
Austria-Hungary is about to
change its financial system from
the silver to the gold standard.
This will, in some degree, have a
tendency to depress silver. It may.
too, operate against the change of
an international agreement on the
readjustment of the ratio between
the money metals and thw rehabili
tation of silver. Globe Democrat.
"WHAT is the use," said the Ilill-
ites of New York, "of running Grov
er Cleveland .again for president?
When we nominated him for gov
ernor we carrid the state by '200,000
majority. When we ran him for
president we had to count him in
We cannot do it again." There
may be something in that proposi
tion, It is possible also that they
can't count Hill in either, since his
feats in counting in three demo
cratic senators who were defeated
at the polls, have become so notor
A singular popular error has
been corrected by the engineers of
Nicaraugua ship canal. It has
been a superstition lor many years
that the level of the Pacific ocean
was many feet higher than the
Atlantic and nervous people have
been predicting great disasters
when the Panama canal was com
pleted and the waters of the Pacific
should come tearing down into the
Atlantic. The difference in eleva
tion was put at a hundred feet, a
big fall in forty miles. But it turns
out that the Atlantic is six and a
liajf feet higher than the Pacific
and the current will be the other
way with not sufficient fall in the
150 miles to count for anything
PEARL BUTTON PRICES.
The greatea increase of duty im
posed by the McKinley bill on any
manfactured article was that upon
pearl buttons. Everybody can
remember the frequent assertions
of the free trade press during
the campaign of 1890. They were:
1. That there were no pearl button
factories in the United States. '2.
That there never would be more
than one or two of them. 3. That
these one or two highly protected
factories, having a monopoly of
the trade, would "ad d the tariff
duty to the price," 4. That the pro
tectionist prediction of numerous
pearl button factories, and, conse
quently, ot increased competition,
with a tendency to lower price, was
either foolishly or dishonestly put
The increased duty on pearl but
tons has been in force for
about eighteen months. What is
the result? Are the free trade
assertions proven true? Or were
the protectionist right? Following
our custom of placing a free trade
witness on the stand to prove the
case of the protectionists, we quote
from page 11 of the Dry Goods
Economist of Feb. 8, 18U2. After
making note of six pearl button
factories in the stale of New Jersey
alone, The Economist says:
All the pearl button factories at
Newark are doing a fair business,
but there is too much cutting of
profits among makers.
That is what eighteen months of
protection has done in the pearl but
ton trade; it has produced firece
competition, with what a journal of
free trade tendencies terms "too
much cutting of profits among
But, on the same page, our con
The price of several kind of
pearl shell has advanced 50 per
cent in the last four months. The
great auction sales in England set
tle the price.
Yet, if the price of pearl buttons
should rise, as the price of the raw
material has risen, we shall hear
the free-trade yell of "higher prices
on account of the tariff," although
there is dead silence as to the "too
much cutting of prices among
makers," which is the direct conse
quence of the increase of factories
"on acottut of the tariil." Inter
An Eccentric Divine Who Was Given to
Modern congregations, which often
feel themselves free to criticise and
condemn their ministers for very slight
offenses, would he ill at case, no doubt,
if the old-time authority of pastors
over their flock were restored, says the
Youth's Comjinnion. In the old-fashioned
days, two centuries ago, it was
the custom for the minister to criticise
and sometimes to harass his congrega
tion, instead of permitting himself to
be harrassed by them. Some stories
told of an eccentric divine in Bristol,
Eng., illustrates this.
This clerg3 man was given to preach
ing very long sermons so long that
his congregation finally made a formal
remonstrance. He assured them that
he would take the matter into consid
eration. Next Sunday, when the hour came
for the sermon, the pastor announced
that he would give them a "short sub
ject." His text, he said, was from Luke
xviii, 8 "Neverthless."
He began to preach, and the sermon
had already been half an hour longer
than usual when he said:
"And now I know you are all fret
ting and grumbling because vour din
ners are spoiling at home, but never
theless I shall go on."
At last complaint was made to the
liishop against the clergyman's "ridi
culous manner of preaching." and the
personal remarks which he introduced
into his sermons. The Archdeacon and
the Bishop's Chaplain were directed to
go secretly to the church, and bring a
faithful report to the Bishop of what
The clergyman, in spite of their
secrecy, got wind of their presence and
errand, and preached from Genesis
xlii., 9: "Ye are spies; to see the
nakedness of the land ye are come."
The sermon, it is said, was so in
genious and forcible that a good re
port of it was carried to the Bishop,
and for that time the pastor triumphed
over his enemies.
Finally, however matters went so
far that the clergyman one day came
to blows with several of his parishion
ers, and conquered them all, giving
them a severe drubbing. Next Sun
day he took for his text Nehemiah xiii.,
"And I contended with them and
cursed them, and smote certain of
them, arul plucked off their hair."
Greek as She Is Spoke.
In a letter to the Times on "Greek at
the Universities," Sir George Bowen
says: "I would venture to conclude
with an appropriate anecdote which
may help to enliven this somewhat
dry subject. The late Bishop Wilber
force was wont to relate that at one of
his ordinations he once had a candi
date who was the son of an English
merchant settled in Greece. When
examined in the Greek testament this
gentleman pronounced in the Greek
manner, which seemed strange to the
bishop,-who exclaimed: 'Oh, Mr. ,
where did you learn Greek?' ' The
trembling candidate faltered out. At
Athens, my lord!' The bishop added.

tion.'" Toronto Globe.
