A Shack at
The earthquake shock ot Oct. 28,
felt by the American bark Hssper, Capt
Sodergen, at the harbor of Koke, Japan.
Her standing rigging was carried away
by the force of the shock. On October
30, when the vessel was about twenty
five miles from Kobe on her homeward
trip another violent shock occurred
shortly after daybreak. A rumbling aa
that of a submarine volcano was heard
and -the sea was dashed into foam, the
waves breaking over the vessel. The
bark was shaken and tossed about most
violently and maintopmast crosstrees
went by the board. The deck was flood
ed with water of a temperature so high
as to seem almost boiling hot, and the
air, which was filled with a sulphurous
odor, became stifling. The strength of
the vessel and her crow was taxed to the
utmost for an hour and a half, but it was
fully five hours before the storm ceased.
Captain Sodergren then steered the ves
sel to the southward to keep out ot the
storm. He lost four days by his course,
but as fair weather was experienced for
the remainder of the voyage a quick run
was made to San Francisco.
Now that we have a right good system
of voting, the Fremont Flail suggests
would be a good time to elect all officers
by the popular vote. The Journal has
for many years favored this policy on
principle, and there is no good objection
to it The people, who at last pay all the
bills, are the best judges in their own
affairs. The forebodings ot some of the
revolutionary fathers in regard to the
non-ability of the common people to
govern themselves have never been real
ized, the truth being that in every crisis
of our history, when as a government the
will of the people was most closely ad
hered to and followed, we had the best
results. The class ot people who make
their living by holding office, are not fa
vorable, and it will never be made if they
can prevent it The less power the peo
ple have, the better it will suit profes
sional politicians, but we shall never
have a satisfactory administration of the
laws, either national or municipal, until
they can be enforced with an impartial
hand, and outside the pale of local influ
ence. Instead of being allowed to go
from bad to worse and worst, as is the
case in many places, the rule should be
reversed and a radical change made
along the line of better. Great evils are
like great fires they should be circum
vented and squelched, and, when possi
ble, prevented. A dipperof water at the
proper moment would have saved
Chicago from the great conflagration
that burned like a furnace. The leaven
of better ways can work until "the whole
lump is leavened." All the people can
see better than some ot the people, and
there is no good reason why they should
not elect postmasters, U. S. marshals
and senators, as well as county and city
officers the general government too, in
all things should be an expression of the

KiBley. John Byrne, sr., of Gladewater, Texas,
writes as follows to the American Econ
omist: I am getting your paper regularly. I
am always glad when it comes. It is an
encylopedia from which I can learn the
social condition .of. the world. I am an
Irishman by birth, but not of the McAdoo
or Davitt school. I am an American
by choice, but not of the sockless tribe
or half-breeds. I served my time to a
trade. I am now farming, but if I had
to fall back on my trade, the robber
baron here under, protection would pay
me more than twice as much for doing
the same work here as his friend in
Ireland would pay me, and I can buy
flour cheaper here than there. I can buy
beef here for 5 cents a pound for which
I would pay 20 cents there. For leave to
drink a pound of tea there I had to pay
12 cents. It is free here. For leave to
drink coffee, $3.50 per cwt, and for
leave to chew tobacco, 5s a pound. To
earn the price of one pound of tobacco,
a farm laborer would have to work five
When young I was an ardent free
trader and supporter of Cobden and
Bright I tell it with shame. The big
cheap loaf was tempting. I never thought
until too late how the poor rack-rented
struggling farmer was forced to supply
the cheap loaf, till I saw the murderous
crowbar brigade, under the protection
of troops burning them out of their
houses and turning their land into game
I saw these farmers afterward wheel
ing barrows on government work for 9
cents a day. I knew a good strong plow
man who worked for the rector of Bal
inahinch, county Down, for 18 cents per
day without board. I have known
horseshoers to work in the county Deny
from 6a.m until 10 at night for Is 25
cents a day, of our money. Please tell
this to Mr. McAdoo, as I see by one of
my papers about how degrading protec
tion is to American citizenship. I have
worked at my trade in Ireland from 5 a.
m. till 7 in tho evening for 9s a week
without board. I am now getting old,
but even now-working at theaame trade
in America, I could earn 48s a week

only degrading thing would be having

The national republican committee
held a very harmonious meeting here to
day; elected. Oen. Clarkson to succeed
Senator Quay as chairman, and selected
the place and date for the meeting ot
the national convention next year. For
two daya past the corridors ot the hotel
in which the committee held its meeting

tional times, owing to the presence of so
many republicans ot national promi
nence. The members ot the eommittee
have an abiding faith in the success of
the party next year, and for that reason
they determined to make no mistake
which should be serious enough to
jeopardize that success. The selection
of Gen. Clarkson for chairman and the
date set for the convention meets with
unanimous approval, but as was to be
expected after the sharp rivalry, the se
lection ot the place for the convention
to meet has caused sore disappointment.
But no more than waa inevitable. Only
one place could get the honor, and those
who are disappointed because it was not

in future, all money printed at the bu

before it is delivered to the treasury to

steam drying was responsible for the
blurred appearance which many of the
notes show after a little handling, and
that it weakened the tbre of the paper
to a marked extant, thus shortening the
time the note would last.
