Mil Cleveland had better stick
to the tariff reform idea, and let the
Bilver question alane.
It is pretty save to conclude that
America will in due time decide for
biraetalism and a monetary system
of her own. But it may cost the
democracy its job in the decision—
which will not be in the nature of
a national disaster after all.
Ihe recent bombardment of the
blue ethereal space around about
Stockville, was not a success, pluv
ially speaking. But “in the matter
of noise, rattling windows, loosen
ing plaster and making some of the
women nervous, it was all right,”
says the Republican.
The Sherman law cannot be
fairly held responsible for the
present unfortunate condition of
the finances of our land, and we
do not expect to see the law re
pealed without a substantial com
promise measure substitutes it,
more favorable if anything, to the
When the big national banks of
Milwaukee, Indianapolis and
Louisville begin to crash as they
have been for the past several days,
it looks as if the New York Sun
had made mistake when it declar
ed last Monday that west of the
Missouri river bankruptcy was the
rule rather than the exception.
The Stites twins of Wichita,
Kas., who married twins and are
each the father of twins, will find
millions in the fame they have
achieved in the past few days if
they want to go into a libel suit
business. The newspapers of the
country are denominating them
“Chicago fakes,” “Arabian Nights
figments” and the like with reck
less disregard of tbeir living feel
There is some talk up in Hayes
county of voting on the question of
township organization. If the
people of Hayes county have as
much good horse sense as The
Tribune has credited them with,
they wiy knock that foolish propos
ition into smithereens. Thev have
no use for such an expensive and
unwieldy organization. None
The pop public printer of Kan
sas explains the dismissal of the old
state militia and the reorganization
of the same with nobody but long
tried pops on guard, as a little pre
paration in good time for“marching
the republicans into the shadow of
hell in the face of red roaring
guns.” When the New York Com
mercial Advertiser read the pro
gramme it advised the pops of Kan
sas and Colorado to fan each other.
Thebe are some people who think
that England can dictate the finan
cial policy of the United States.
Well, she can if she can, not other
wise. But there is no need of ac
cepting that alternative. American
silver at the ratio of sixteen to one
ought to be as good as European
silver at a ratio of fifteen to one
and a half, and woe be unto the ad
ministration or party that forces
demonetization at the behest of
Rothschild and the money-chang
ers of Wall street.
While the railroads of the
Western Passenger association are
haggling away about graded rates
to Chicago, a good many people
who have been saving up money
to go to the World’s fair are get
ting out of the notion. Every day
that the railroads postpone the es
tablishment of an open, one fare
rate to the Columbian show de
creases their present earnings, and
renders the prospect for enlarged
travel to the World’s fair later in
the season more doubtful.

I. B. Smith is very notional. He took
a notion and bought a fine quarter of
land; then he took a notion and turned
one hundred and forty acres of it upside
down; then he took another notion and
built a frame house; then another notion
led him to build a frame stable for six
horses and a tool shed, and the next no
tion induced him to sink a well and
erect a moter wind mill, still another led
him to build a crib and stock sheds and
fence twenty acre for pasture. Now we
suggest another notion that will lay all
these other notions in the shade and that
