Democrats of New York have
finally "got together." Both the
Sun and the World denounce "this
democratic wasteful congress."
The Sun says: "Democrats in con
gress' have their e3'es on the star
eyed goddess (of free trade) and
their lists in the nation's money
The Plattsmouth Journal feels
very confident that the consumer
pays the tariff duty, as all free
trade fanatics are. Yet in the same
breath it admits that the prices of
articles have not increased by a
higher duty. This is a big admis
sion for a stubborn democrat. But
it has initiated the new dodge,
which will be sprung on all sides
during the campaign, that "goods
are not as low as they would be if
free of duty." Now it must be
plain to even a "tariff reformer"
that if "a consumer pays the duty,"
he will pay more, if the dut is
higher. The conclusion is that he
does not pay the duty. Nebraska
Woulij it not be exercising a
large amount of good common
sense if the democratic press would
cease criticising the McKinley tarilT
laws? This question is suggested
by reason of the fact that the popu
lar branch of congress is largely
democratic and yet that party has
v.-ill fail to repeal the very law
pretended to fight so bitterlj
. i the stump say is systematic
y of the people. Every dem-
can verj thoiightfulljr ask
himself the question: If the tariff
law is what my party claims it to
be, why does it not make a move in
congress to repeal? There is no
republican majority in the way,
and to say there is no use in the
party making an effort to repeal the
obnoxious law, because the senate is
republican, is no other than a baby
excuse for the democratic hotise
failing to carry out its pledges to
the people. The thinking demo
crats of the country will certainly
discontinue their abuse of a policy
which as a party is fully endorsed
by its failure to repeal when having
the power to do so. Turn the
tables and think how utterly ridicu
lous it would be if the policy of
free trade had prevailed and the
republicans out of power had for
years been condemning that policy
as detrimental to the prosperity of
the nation and then, suddenly se
curing power, fail to repeal the law
they had so severely criticised. A
procedu-e of this kind proves to all
thinking men the ins:ncerity of the
party practicing it and w'll fail to
secure the confidence of the busi
ness interests of the nation. The
action of the present house of rep
resentatives is proving to the people
that power alone is the ideal of the
democratic pariy. This house is
making a large endeavor to blind
the men who gave it power. It has
not the courage dr wisdom to do
more than make speeches against
what it claims to be a most ruinous
policy, uemocrats rail ana wag
the;r tongues against the "robber
tariff," yet their party now in power
in congress by inaction is endors
ing the action of the republican
house of 18l0. The Herald desires
its-republican readers to push this
question home to their democratic
neighbors: If the McKiuley tariff
is ruinous as you say, why does
not the democratic house of con
gress show its good faith in the
doctrine of a tariff for revenue only
by repealing the present law and
in its slerd place duties on articles
or people can not produce, yet
must have? Indianola (la.) Herald.

A Bill Eighty-three Fret Lone.
The longest and weightiest "bill of ac
counts" ever presented against an estate
in the history of Connecticut and issi
bly in that of the couiftry was submit
ted before Judge iS. T. C. Ilolhrook in
the Norwich probate court a day or two
ao. It wns fetched into cosrt by one
lawyer, but three attorneys a.d a boy
had to hold it when it was unrolled be
fore his honor for Lus-oction.
It was made out on a continuous roll
of thick accountant's paper, contained
more than 1,000 entries and was 83 feet
and 2 inches long. It extended thtee or
four times around the spacious probute
office after it had been unrolled, and the
judge walked back anil forth across the
multitudinous entries. . The -sum - total
of the account was a little more tliazi
After studying the entries for half or
three-quarters of an hour the judjje
chuckled aud remarked: "Is there any
more of it? Ami what was the objec
tion to bringing it in in sections say
two or three of them a day? But it ap
pears to be all right, and the claims have
to bo allowed apparently."
All day the Norwich attorneys dropped
into the probate office to examine cu
riously the extraordinary bill, and a vet
eran of the bar said, after he had care
fully measured it, "it's unquestionably
the longest bill ever presented in the his
tory of the law in this country." Cor.

Tliey Fooled the Ansrust Senator.
Not even the gravest, most venerable '
of senators is proof against the wiles of i
April Fool's Day. The senate pages as
a rule manage to have a pretty good
time in life, but play their pranks far
enough from the sacred precincts of the
higher branch to escape unpleasant rep
rimands. On April Fool's Day thiy
started in to test the financial predilec
tions of the senate. A line was baited
with a fat and juicy looking wallet that
lay temptingly in the corridor, just
where the senators turned the corner.
Along came tall John Sherman. His
eyes lit on the wallet. Probably the
6enior senator rfnd great financier had
never before found a pocketbook lyin j
so carelessly about in his path. He
swooped down upon it. His fingers were
rapidly closing over it, but they only
shut up like a clenched fist, while the
pocketbook, like an elusive dream,
irlided out of sight as if it had wings.
A whisper fell on Sherman's ear,
Fool,v a clatter of scurrying boys' feet
accompanied it. Sherman went in to
complain to the venerable doorkeeper,
who has since been trying in vain tD
bring the jolly young pages into a proper
frame of repentance. Kate Field's
Married in Their Graveyard.
Mr. W. N. Green, a rich farmer liv
ing just over the Carroll line in Haral
son county, selected a novel spot to be
married on a few days ago. Mr. Green
was a widower and he courted Mrs. M.
A. Sanford, a widow, and an agreement
to marry was made between them. Mr.
Green sent for Squire Newt Tillman,
to perform the marriage ceremony.
Mr. Green has a beautiful home and
near it has a mill. Between the resi
dence aud the mill is a beautiful grass
knoll, and on this elevated spot Mr.
Green selected his family cemetery, and
also selected the exact spot where he
and his future wife must be buried, and
on this spot Squire Tillman made Bill
Green and Martha Sanford man and
wife Sunday morning, in the presence
of a half dozen witnesses. Cor. Atlanta
One Way of Settling a Difficulty.
Two prisoners, Francisco Brionea
Gamboa and Victor Higuera, were im
plicated in a murder, at Guara. The
Guayaquil court, being unable to fix the
relative guilt of either, passed the. fol
lowing sentence, "They shall draw lots,
and the one favored by chance shall not
be executed and shall have his sentence
commuted to that of imprisonment foi
life, which sentence he shall serve in
the prison of the capital of the republic,
after being present at the execution of
the other murderer." Panama Star and
Salt in Egypt.
A discovery of salt, which seems hkely
to have important consequences, has
been made by the officers of the Egyp
tian salt department twenty or thirty
miles west of Minieh, a point on the
Nile about 150 miles up the river from
Cairo. Specimens of the salt show that
it is of very fine quality. The deposit
is said to extend over an area of 1,000
acres, and the department is about to
make a further survey of it. Chicago
A Tripnle Wedding Feast.
A unique triple wedding feast was en
joyed in a Bohemian village early last
month, when a young couple were mar
ried on the same day that the parents of
the bridegroom celebrated their silver
wedding and his grandparents their
golden wedding. On the same day a
diamond wedding was celebrated at
Heiligenkreuz, near Vienna.
Klectric Stamp Canceling Machines.
Four electrical machines are to be set

While the inhabitants of south and
eastern Russia are starving, a large pro
Iortion of the population of eastern
Siberia and Turkestan have so much
grain that they do not know what to do
with it. In the province of Semiret
chinsk the jeasants have- enough grain
to last them for ten years, and in the
provinces of Yenesei.sk, Yakutsk and
the Transbaikal the price of wheat is
one-eighth what it is in the Volga pro
vinces. The best beef is being sold at
the rate of about d. a ound, but as
there .are no railways and few or no
roads in these rich jortions of the em
pire, this superabundant wealth cannot
be put to account. London Tit-Bits.

young woman came to the marshal and
asked for the arrest of her husband, who
was ill treating her. The man was
placed in jail, but when the time of
trial came the wife did not appear to
prosecute her case. The husband was
released and then explained that he had
attempted to kiss his wife. She object

An Aluminium Lifeboat.
A lifeboat of aluminium has recently
been built at Stralsund. It is a matter
of considerable curiosity to see how this
boat will answer when thoroughly test

more than counterbalanced by various
disadvantages. New York Times.
