There is a fair prospect that Win.
McKinley will be nominated on the
fiist ballot at the republican conven
tion. There is no force in the American
republic so dangerous to its perpetuity
as the anarchism of wealth. The sons
of .lay Gould have lately become citi
zens of New Jersey, in order to avoid
paying their personal taxes in New
York City, where they actually live, do
business and reap its rewards. That
is practical anarchism.
A mon tariff, if enacted today would
create a temporary Hush in the times.
but it would only be temporary. Mer
chants with stccks of goods on their
shelves would reap a harvest by being
able to mark up their goeds to corres
pond with the increase in the taxes
which the people have to pay, but
that's all. I'nless bimetallism is
A bill, which repealed the last law
on the books that discriminates against
ex-confederates, passed the house
Tuesday with but a single dissenting
voice, and that one was lioutelle, the
Maine blatherskite. The repealed
section of the code prohibited men who
had been officers in the regular army
and had gone into the confederate
army from being mustered again into
the U.S. army.
Is it not strange that men who call
themselves republicans and have for
. years been denouncing the economic
or free trade policy of England as at
enmity with American interests,
should fall down before her and wor
ship her financial policy and think
America should ape her gold standard?
If it is consistent with American in-
terests to adopt the protective system
why not carry the ride a little further
and readopt the bimetallic standard,
and be free from British rule on money
matters as well as in the matter of
CnAiRMAN Smytite of the demo
cratic state committee has added to the
dignity and importance of Euclid Mar
tin and his crowd of bolters by writing
another letter to him, in which he
shows up the hypocrisy and unfairnese
f the little cuckoo, and roasts him to
a finish, for refusing to permit a vote
on the money question among the dem
ocrats of Nebraska and for his wilful
misrepresentation of facts. As a let
ter writer Mr. Smythe is a success.
Tiie Venezuelan commission seems
to be studiously at work unraveling
the mystery connected witli the claims
of Venezuela and England. There
seems to be no ground for the report
given out by the press that the com
mission had reached a conclusion
favorable to the claims of Venezuela,
because the claims of the two powers
has not been fully investigated. A
late letter has been received from JLord
Salisbury which is anything but satis
factory on the subject of arbitration.

T. II. Pollock, agent of the Home Fire
Dear Sir: I desire to express my
thanks to the Home lire insurance
companyjof New York, to P.W. Plank,
the adjustor, and to yourself, for the
prompt and satisfactory settlement of
the insurance on my barn and con
tents. The fire occurred March 9th, and to
day, March 19th, you hand me a draft
for $2,G50,which settlement I regard as
perfectly fair and honorable.
The money, coming so promptly, is of
great benefit to me in replacing my
barn, horses, farm machinery, etc.
I have faith in the Home Fire in
surance company of New York and
recommend the company to my neigh
bors and friends or any one wanting
honest, reliable insurance.
I have let the contract for a new
barn and as soon as it is completed I
want you to write a policy in the same
company covering my house, barn and
You are at liberty to publish this let
ter if you desire. Yours Truly,

It is a dark picture.

It tias been a long time since our
friend Abdul II amid has been in the
press. From the profound silence that
reigns in Armenia IfearAb has be
come shy on Christians and. perforce,
hrs been compelled to desist from his
playful custom of busting people open
with clubs and kindred amusements.
It is barely possible that Ab is merely
laying back for a little rest so as to
come in strong at the finish. If so. we
may soon expect to be regaled with
more tales of bntehery from the domin
ions of the sublime porte. It is really
a pity that some of the Christian?
natious of modern Europe cannot mus
ter up enough ;ynbitionto take this in
sane criminal and put him to death
as they did in ancient times. I would
suggest that he be killed by being torn
to pieces by wild animals. I am not
bloodthirsty but really the tales of
torture and death that the cable has
carried from the desolate land brings
a man to realize the insufficiency of
human punishment. These remarks
apply with equal fittingness to Weyler
in Cuba. Let the United States step
iu and slay this wretch while we are
at it and make a good job.
