The sooner ship communication bo.

The proposition of the stock raisers to
prevent the sale of shoddy or cotton
goods foV all wool by unscrupulous
dealers will moit with the hearty ap
proval of the consumer generally. It is
an abuse that has continued without lot
or hindrance for many years while
efforts to forbid the sale of adulterated
food products have been abundant.
When people make a deal for all wool
goods they would like to be assured that
they are all wool and many of them
cannot judge of the aotualjquality except
by the test that wear will Rive. If people
ple wish to buy ohoap they should bo
accommodated but with the understand
ing that they are scouring cheap goods.
Many unscrupulous dealers will extract
an oil-wool price for cheap goods and it
is a practice that should be discon
The German government signifies a
willingness to assist the free traders in
tearing down the American tariff wall
and thus giving .them a chance at the
"Yankee peril. " ' Members of thereioh-
stag are evidently of the opinion that the
article with "mode in Germany" blown
in the bottle , is met with in this
country altogether too infrequently.
America has a large number of mechan
ics and laborers , among them quite a
number of persons whoso native homos
were in the fatherland , whom the people
of this country are interested in having
secure good wages without the compe
lition that free trade would give them
It might reasonably be said that the
"Yankee , I > eril" , is now composed in
large port of former citizens of Germany
and the proportion will increase as long
as they are guaranteed good wages
Congressman Weeks wauta to settle
the question of what shall bo douo with
Aguiualdo by permitting him to escape.
The congressman thinks Aggie is now
a dead issue , that ho can do this country
no further hurt and that his room is
bettor than his company. The congress-
nan has a quite sensible notion about
ho Rending of lady teachers to the
slautls. Ho says : * "Tho method of ed
ucating the natives adopted by this gov-
rumout is wrong. Refined , handsome
oung ladies from Vossar and other col-
egoa wont down to the Philippines to
dncato those natives. They have hade
o put up with all kinds of privations ,
and cat native food , and in some places
heir lives have boon in danger. I
hluk this is entirely unnecessary. In
place of those young ladies , discharged
oldiors of education , who have become
acclimated , should bo appointed , and
ho young ladies sent home.
