Now will the Journal please tell
us which side of the silver question
it :s on?
Wonder if the Journal will have
to have a five-story brick building
fall on it before it knows when its
idol (the silver-tongued Brjran) is
sat down upon?
A Nebraska statute prohibits
the killing of robins, blackbirds
and meadow larks from January 1
to November 1, under a penalty of
$25 for each bird killed.
THE republican party in 1888 was
in favor of the use of both gold and
silver as money, and it is in favorof
the same to-day, ta long as the sil
ver dollar contains 100 cents.
The Kansas democrats have en
dorsed Cleveland, who has come
out strong against free silver, and
they also endorsed free silver. It
takes a democratic covention to be
THERE is a pearl button factory in
Eau Claire, Wisconsin, and the Pearl
Button Republican Club of that city
will go to the Minneapolis conven

buttons having been fostered in that

h E Des Moines Democratic Lead-c.-says:
"It is extremely doubtful
it" Cleveland could be elected. There
is little doubt that Boies would
sweep the country." There is a
mania just now in democratic cir
cles to get hold of some old rene
gade republican, such as Boies,
Palmer, Gra3', or Campbell. The old
wheel horses of democracy have to
take back seats when "a convert"
wants a place.
The Journal asks us to explain
our attitude on the silver question.
Wewilldoit, as that is the easiest
question the Journal could ask us
for we were not on the fence like the
Journal is. We know right where
' We are in favor of an honest dol
lar, one that has 100 -cents in it.
One that will pass for a dollar and
buy a dollar's worth of goods in

We are opposed to any 70-ceut
dollar, stamped with the Godess of
Liberty, that, as soon as it gets be
yond our shores, will not buy a
dollar's worth of goods.

CRISP'S ADMINISTRATIVE WEAK
NESS. Mr. BaUey of Texas, in objecting
to the passage of any bill in the
house unles a quorum votes, is ad
ministering to his party some of
the medicine which it dealt out to
the republicans in the J i f ty-firs t
congress. The Texas statesman, of
course, has moral and technical as
well as poetic justice on his side in
this matter, and his party was
right in the proceeding congress in
insisting on the observance of this
requirement. But the equities of
the case had much less to do with
the democratic position on this
point at that time than had the de
sire to impede and embarrass the
republicans. At the beginning of
that congress the republicans had
in (he house only six or seven mem
bers in excess of a quorum, and
naturally they had the utmost dif
ficulty in keeping a quorum on
hand at all important exigencies.
They were obliged to rely chiefly
on their own party in this endeavor,
for the democrats often contrived
to be absent in critical emergen
cies, and thus prevented the
speaker from counting them in
matting up the quota. In such
cases the point of "no quorum,"
which some democrat left behind
for the purpose would make, often
placed troublesome obstacles in
the way of legislation.
In this way Mr. Bailey has been
the means of revealing a surprising
lack of administrative efficiency in
the leaders of his party in the house.
The democrats have about seventy
members in that body in excess of a
quorum, yet on many important oc
casions a quorum, even after count
ing the republicans on hand, has
not been present. For a large part
of the time nearly half of the 236
democratic members of the house
have been away from their seats.
This is a record of absenteeism
which is altogether without example
in recent years. Apparently the
speaker and the heads of his chief
committees are powerless in the
matter of securing the attendance
of their colleagues. They either
lack the respect of their party or
culpably neglect the elementary
precautions to secure the presence
of a sufficient number of their fol
1 wers to carr3 on the business of
legislation. Their is no cohesive
ness or zeal in the party interest
and advancement among the
members of the organization
or else their chief and his
"whips" are grossly and amazingly
derelict in their duties. At all
events the discipline which was en
forced in the republican house last
year and the year before is utterly
and conspicuously absent now, and
the democracy, with all its domi
nance of strength on the rolls, often
finds itself pitiably and contempt
ibly weak at important exigencies.

good. We sold her a bottle of

Preaching Over Old Scrnionit.
The scandal arising from bought sei
mons, which imfortunatly are often
sold in duplicate mid even triplicate,
has caused at least one bishop hence
forth to forbid their use in his diocese,
lie has no objection to his clergy preach
ing the sermons of other divines if the
authorship is acknowledged, and ever
considers that an original discourse once
a week is as much as can be reasonably
expected from the average curate; but
there must be no duplicity in the mat
ter. There lias always been a danger in
the purchased sermon.
Recognition of the borrowed work, if
from a well known source, is also al
ways possible, or nearly always. A
Welsh curate confessed to the following
ingenious plan for evading it, whicL
must, however, have given liim a, great
deal of trouble: "I've got a volume of
sermons by one Tillotson, and a very
good book it is; so I translate them into
Welsh and then back again into Eng
lish, after which Tillotson himself would
not know them again." Illustrated

Pavements of Jerusalem.
xie principal pavements made in Pal
estine are in Jerusalem, and it is only
within recent years they have been con
structed in accordance with anything
like modern requirements. The superior
and massive Roman pavements, over
2,000 years old and still in fair preservat
ion, are here not taken into considera
tion. The material for streets is stone,
cut about the size and shape of ordinary
bricks or a little larger. This is laid ic
sand, the long and narrow side up. The
stone used is the well known Jerusalem
marble. The cost varies from one to
two dollars per square yard. The foun
dation is almost invariably the rubbish
of the ancient city, which has accumu
lated during centuries. Philadelphia
Can't Always Depend on What You See.
While it is very reasonable to trust the
verdict of our consciousness, yet it in
equally desirable that this confidence
should be accompanied by an under
standing of the conditions under which
the evidence is presumably valid and
when likely to mislead. Sense decep
tion, faulty observation, exaggeration,
neglect, fallacy, illusion and error
abound on all sides and emphasize the
need of a calm judgment, a well equipped .
intellect, a freedom from haste and
prejudice, an appreciation of details and'
lice distinctions, in the determination
jf truth and the maintenance of mental;
