Ovlk $.T,XX),(XX) of the $48,000 000
involved in the river and harbor
bill goes to the south. That is why
over two-thirds of the democrats in
the house voted for it.
A FEW years ago wire nails were
no dear farmers could not afford to
use them, but now, under protec
tion, they have fallen in price until
they are fold for less than the tariff
on the imported article, and con
sumers get home-made nails which
are not only low in price, but the
best in quality of any made in the
TnE public debt of he United
States has been paid during the
last ten years at the rate of $100,000,
000 per year. The greatest propor
tion has been paid during Presi
dent Harrison's term, the surplus
revenues being used to buy bonds
of the government in the open mar
kets. During President Cleveland's
term this was allowed to accumu
late in the hands of favored banks
and made a bugaboo of to help
pass the Mills bill reducing the
tariff. Indiauola (la.) Herald.
Representative Hariek of Ohio,
who al.o boldly saj-s: "I am a dem
ocrat," has other fears than free sil
ver and a protective tariff. Listen
to him: "The great danger to the
democratic party is that she will
ri!' -v .- lit-i self to a few individuals,
i v of them like Nr. Hill, utterly
r'.hy to be consorted with,
. . . ihc will divorce herself from
eternal principles of liberty and
political equality, and equal frights
for all men with special privileges
THE democratic free binding
twine bill was too great a sham and
swindle even for the tariff reform
stomach of the New York Times.
That muwump journal usually
hails with joy each and every redcu
tion of protective duties, but the so
called free binding-twine bill was
such a transparent piece of elec
tioneering humbug that it had to
draw the line on it. The bill repre
sented stupidit' that was not to be
applauded even in the name of tariff
reform. The Times was compelled
to say: "The removal of the insig
nificant duty on binding twine
could be of no service to the western
farmers, whom the majorit' of the
members are supposed to have in
mind. That duty is only seven
tenths of a cent per pound. The re
moval of it would not perceptibly
reduce the price of binding twine."
THE MISSISSIPPI FLOODS.
"The Maker of the Universe never
created but one thing which he
could not control," said the distin
guished orator, SergeantJL. Prentiss,
"and that was the Mississippi river.
He made it, turned it loose, and let
it rip." This graptc view is practic
ally confirmed by the annual floods
like the one that is now devastating
ths southern portion of the country.
The situation is worse in some re
spects than has been known for sev
eral years, and the result must be a
loss of property and an interruption
of industry that will seriously re
tard the prosperity and welfare of
thousands of citizens. It seems to
be impossible to provide adequate
and reliable means of protection
against these terrible disasters. The
great river has a way f turning the
calculations of science to mockery,
and brushing aside the most formid
able defenses that engineering skill
has yet been able to devise. There
are contingences in its scheme of
operations that can not be foreseen.
The experience of one year is not al
ways a sa fe guide for the next one,
owing to the intervention of new
sources of danger and new methods
of attack and destruction. Those
who lire in the districts subject to
overflow are never certain that they
be permitted to raise a crop or to re
main in their homes. They are at
the mercy of a force that may ruin
them in a day, and their efforts to
avert the calamity count for little or
nothing as a general rule.
It is insisted by those who are
bent acquainted with the condition
of the problem that the levee sys
tem is the only feasible plan of
protection; but it proves to be a
disappointment when put to a
severe test. New breaks occur
every year it points where perfect
security had previously been felt,
and it is by no means sure that any
form of embankment will resist the
flood under all circumstances. A
large amount of money has been
expended in the construction of
such works, and competent engi
neers have declared the most im
portant of them to be impregnable,
but the river still repeats its disas
ters year after year in spite of all
such appliances. Possibly the
system would be effective if the ex
penditure had been larger. There
is a good deal of force in the sug
gestion that it is not to be expected
that defenses erected at a few
points will stand the strain of such
a volume of water as the Missis
sippi now contains when other
points are left unprotected. That
is to say, a levee system of a local
sort does not give assurance of
safety because it takes account
only of immediate tacts, when in
reality the distant considerations
are the governing ones. If the
whole country adjoining the river
from St. Louis to New Orleans
could be provided with levees,
these annual inundations would
probably be prevented. The cost
of such a system would be enor
mous, of course, but the interests
involved are also enormous, and
the necessary outlay could be justi
fied as easily as some others that
have been made from time to time
under the general welfare clause of
the constitution. It is certain, at
any rate, that the task of protecting
the fertile and valuable lands
along the river against the floods
that are now so damaging to their
owners should be assumed by the
government, and that the work
should be done in a comprehensive
and practical manner. St. Louis

How completely the doorplate has
gone out of fashion. When I came to
New York to work for a living, a door
plate was as essential an insignia of gen
tility as a bank account, and shops
where they were sold were to be found
everywhere. On the residence streets
of the better class, at a certain hour
every morning, you would see a servant
on every stoop, polishing the plate up
before its owner had his breakfast. The
doorplate was with us what the marble
front step is to a Philadelphian. Phila
delphia's front steps are there yet.
Our doorplates have become things
of the past, found only on old fashioned
houses without pretensions to style.
Their places have probably been taken
by the coats of arms which fashionable
New York now pays a Frenchman to
invent or borrow for it, and which make
the titled visiting foreigner rub his eyes
when he finds his own crest over the
door of a Wall street man of unknown
origin or a railroad magnate of no ori
gin at all. New York Cor. Pittsburg
"What be you after now, Samu'l Pay
son?" inquired a brisk and thrifty Ver
mont farmer of a thiftless neighbor,
who came shuffling across the barnyard
one morning with as mnch of a business
like air as he was able to assume.
"I jest wanted t' know," replied the
amiable Samu'l, with bis usual vac
illating smile; "I'mtryin f fix tb place
up a little, 'gainst some vis'tors we've
got comin, an I jest wanted t' know if
so be 't you c'd give me an empty barr'l
o' flour t' make a hencoop f put a pig
