Said McKeighan in his acceptance

I tell yon that I am no democrat. "
THE census of India , just com
pleted , shows that country to LaAre
a population of 288,000,000 , a gain
of 11 per cent in ten years.
OVEII 50,000 persons died of
cholera in the Russian Caucasus in
July. These figures do not include
the deaths from cholera in Asiatic
IN the future all statements re
garding Judge Greshain's attitude
towards the people's party ought
to be accompanied by a barrel of
salt or an affidavit.
OF course Mr. Hilt will make
democratic speeches this fall.
They may not do him any good ,
but a failure to speak would kill
him deader than the opposition af
ter the first ballot at Chicago.
ON the first Tuesday of Septem
ber Vermont will elect a governor ,
legislature and congressmen , and
on the second Monday of Septem
ber , Maine will elect a governor ,
legislature and congressmen. After
Yerniont and Maine there will be
no other elections until November.
NEXT year the discover-
America will be celebrated in every
way that patriotism can invent.
Not only are we to be furnished
with a special issue of half-dollars
by the treasury , commemorating
the event , but the post office de
partment also has decided to sell a
complete set of jubilee postage
rstamps during the year of 1893.
'The stamps will bear appropriate
-engravings , and the only portrait

THE New York "World , in a
'double leaded editorial , calls for
boodle to be used in Nebraska and
-other northwestern states to carry
them for "Weaver and Field and
the fat prophet. It shows its faith
by words in heading the subscrip
tion with a donation of ten thous
and dollars. This money will be
welcome in Nebraska , not that we
are poor , but because we are all
possessed with a laudible ambition
to become richer. Send the money
right along to our friend Tobe
Castor. He will put it where it
will do the most good. Journal.
THE irony fate is vividly illus
trated in the sudden and unex
pected death of John Gr. "Warwick ,
who succeeded Major McKinleyin
Congress. He was a very rich
mac , and after the accumulation
of his fortune his supreme ambi
tion was to represent Ms district
at "Washington. The aspiration
was realized after many successive
disappointments , when Ohio's
great tariff champion was defeated
in 1890. But the honor which
crowned the desire of many pa
tient years did nofc outlast Mr.
"Warwick's first term in the House ,
and he career upon which lie cen
tered so many high hopes ended
iii the grave.
A VERY gallant and interesting
sight is that of the old man Glad
stone fastening a tube rose in the
buttonhole of his coat and going
to meet the Queen as fresh as a
daisy. It is an exhibition of Brit
ish pluck in a most agreeable form ,
and exemplifies the old adage thai
a blood horse runs till he drops.
Many people remember an expres
sion once used in religious meet
ings , "it is better to wear oul
than to rust out. " The Right
Honorable "William Ewart Glad
stone is a living illustration of the
truth of this saying. He has
been a worker all his days , even
his amusements savoring of labor ,
and here he is fast approaching
ninety years of age and assuming
the government of a great empire
as cheerfully as he would give the
waiter his order for breakfast. It
could be wished that American
statesmen could penetrate the se
cret of Mr. Gladstone and of many
other English public men , who
work so hard and yet live so long.
With us very few men prominent
in politics.live to a great age with
uudiminished vigor ; after sixty ,
there is apt to be a melancholy
record of "Bright's disease , " pa
ralysis , or disappearance from pub
lic sight and memory.
THE fiscal year recently ended
stands as the high water mark of
exports for the United States. In
no previous year has it been nec
essary to use ten figures to express
the amount of our experts to
foreign lands. Chief among these
products of this country sent to
foreign countries was grain and
flour. The total of breadstuffs ex
ported was § 171,000,000 and of
commodities in general , other than
breadstuffs , $143.000,000. There
was also an increase in the exports
of provisions generally , and the
growth of our copper mining in
dustry was shown by exports val
ued at § 1,600,000 more than those
of the previous year. The proportion
tion of agricultural products to the
total export is about five per cent ,
greater than during the previous
3'ear. This affords evidence of
the continued growth of the
foreign demand for our agricultu
ral products , which should be very
encouraging to the farmer.
ANDREW DIXON WHITE in his
great speech at Chautauqua , Mon
day , made some startling state
ments or the growth of crime in
this country. Among other things
he said that the crime is increas
ing more rapidly in the Unitec
States than in any other nation in
the world and that only one mur
derer out of fifty was convictec
and executed. The reason for this
he assigns largely to the extreme
leniency of jurors and governors.
The Clay-King case is a notable
example. Prof. White thinks the
remedy lies in sterner laws anc
more vigorous expressions of the
clergy and of school on the sub
ject. This question is one which
certainly should receive the earn
est study by all thinking Ameri
To the prayerful consideration oi
the tin plate liars is commended
this little statistic. The amount
of tin plate imported into this
country for the year ending June
30 , 1892 , was 263,225 tons. The
year ending June 30 , 1892 , the
amount was 143,061 tons. But
now we remember that the free
trader always exhorts the voter to
eschew figures. They are a very
unhealthy diet for apriori philoso-
per and patriot. Journal.
CONGRESS has adjourned , and the
declaration that Pension Commis
sioner Raum would have to go is
shown to have been unfounded. If
the charges against him where
substantial ones they would have
resulted in something conclusive.
The failure of the investigation is
a vindication of Raum.
ACCORDING to a census bulletin
just issued the whole number of
males in the United States in 1890
was 32,067,880 , and the whole
number of females 30,554,370.
The females exceed the males in
1890'itb'i greater extent than 5 per
