among the Democrats of Gage

Hoke Smith is hauling in his
horns on his pension policy, and
has ordered that suspension cease.
Hoke has heard the rumbling
and is trying to get off the track
before the engine passes.
Some farmers in Berkshire coun
ty, Mass., where a few barns wqre
struck by lightning during recent
storms, have resolved that it is un
safe to put hay in the barn under
a democratic administration, and
have consequently stacked it.
Joseph E. Frick, whom the
Republicans of Dodge county will
present to the Republican state
convention as their choice for su
preme judge, is receiving a splen
did endorsement from the Fre
mont Tribune, his home paper.
Kaiser Wilhelm’s reconcili
ation with Prince Bismarck evi
dently had a string tied to it. Al
ready it is positively declared that
the young ruler has not forgiven
and does not propose to forgive
the aged ex-ohancellor for attacks
on him in speeches and interviews.
It would seem to an ordinary
mortal that the pension bureau has
enough to do in disposing of the
700 odd thousand pending pen
sion claims without calling upon
the men who are now legitimately
drawing pensions to show why
their names should not be dropped
from the rolls.
It has been determined by the
Executive committee of the World’s
Fair not to prolong the exhibition
beyond the time fixed for the expi
ration by Congress. That the
great show at Chicago will be
closed on the 31sl of October.
There are many valid objections
to keeping it open beyond that
period. The various buildings
are not furnished with the facili
ties of heating, and without this
provision they would not be com
fortable in the late fall. It could
hardly be expected that the patron
age after the decline of autumn
would justify the expense of oper
ating the Fair, and the action of
the directors, in view of all the
circumstances, is believed to be
wise and judicious.

brakeman’s cap bears also the “Burling

short time all stationary and cars on
the entire system will bear the same

names in each system.
