The supreme court of Pennsylvania

People all over the country are be

their iolice, "be easy with the toughs."
It isn't much wonder that the laboring

Madame Janauschek is credited with
saying in Baltimore the other: day that

The democrats of the national house
of representatives are as hard to hold in
their places as a drove of mule colts.
They seem to have a natural antipathy
toward attending to business unless they
are forced to, and their neglect of duty
enables the republicans frequently to
put the party -in the ridiculous attitude
of being unable, in spite -of its large
majority, to transact any business.
It is working magnificently, the Wil
son bill, to make states republican. It
is proving its efficiency wherever it is
-tried. We do not concur in the conclu
sion of our esteemed contemporary, the
Cincinnati Enquirer, that if this goes on
"the democratic party might as well be
disbanded." There will be no need of
any formal process of dissolution. The
Wilson bill, to make states republican,
will take care of that. New York Son,

It is said that Mexico last year coined
26,000,000 silver dollars, of which 25,
000,000 were exported to China, and that
she, in turn, exported a large number to
the East Indies.
We adjust our balance of trade with
China in gold, instead of which, if we
could arrange to give them some of our
surplus silver, we would be helping our
selves in more ways than one.
Last year the balance of trade against
us and in favor of China was $18,000,000,
which would give us quite a market for
silver, and probably result, in a few
years in a greatly increased trade with
Senator Lodge of Massachusetts sees
in this proposition a method of bringing
England to book on the silver question.
She is today the great enemy of any
effort for the restoration of the white
metal to the world's currency, says he,
and we want, if we can, "to force Eng
land to take the view of silver which we
believe is not only for our interest, but
for the interest of trade, of good prices,
of better wages all over the world."
We think there is entirely too much
deference paid to English opinion and
English methods.
Let tho United States do what she
thinks is right; right in her own inter

whether it happens to clash against it.

people, American citizens.
When we find that the yoke is galling
it is certainly high time to at least begin
to consider why we should wear a yoke
at all. The fact is that we sadly need to
come up to the point of declaring a new
declaration of independence, in direct
line with that of 76, and in the interests
of the great common people of not only
this nation, but all others.

Washinqtos is no sooner done with
one cause of grievance than she is called
on to wrestle with another, and this time
it is puzzling the heads of the wisest to
tell what to do. The commonweal army

them as pleasantly as possible and speed
them on their way. There are all shades
of opinion as to the outcome of this state
of affairs. Maryland is apprehensive
that she is to be overrun with thousands
of idle and vicious men who must, at
least, be fed, and these, added to her own
poor, make the burden too great One
of our statesmen proposes that when
they get to the seat of government they

How to find work and wages?
Representative Hainer of this state
knows a trick or two. He had a bill be
fore the House for allowing the carrying
of periodicals through the mails at
pound rates, but notwithstanding that
there were more than a million names,
the post office committee, to whom it
had been referred, refused to make any
report upon it. Our Nebraska rustler
took a new twist, drafting an amendment
to the post office appropriation bill in
corporating his ideas, and had Mr.
Springer offer it. Some pretty lively
discussion ensued; the amendment was
enlarged to include all periodicals issued
at stated intervals by benevolent, frater
nal, educational and college societies,
boards of health, etc.
Judge Ddndt gave expression in very
decided terms in court Wednesday as to
the order that he had made concerning
workmen on the Union Pacific, for which
he said he had been abused and malign
ed. When Attorney Howe remarked
that it was not necessary to swear Mr.
Dickinson, the judge spoke up. "Yes it
is; no man is elevated in this court. If
yon want Mr. Dickinson's testimony to
go into the case he must be Bworn. It
does not make a particle of difference
who a man is, he must be sworn if his
testimony is to be taken in by the court."

A month ago the 15-year-old daughter
of J. Tuckish, a Bohemian, living near
Protikin, Howard county, Iowa, died. It
appears that the day before her death
6he had a tooth extracted, taking an
anaesthetic, and the following morning
was found, as it was supposed, dead in
bed. The interment occurred the fol
lowing day. A few days ago some one
in commenting on the death said the
family made a mistake in burying the
girl so soon, that possibly she was not
dead; that the effect of the anaesthetic
had not worn off. The parents had the
body exhumed Monday of last week, and
the glass of the coffin was found broken,
the girl's hands cut, and bloodstained,
her hair torn out, and the corpse on
its face.
Silver has been slaughtered in that
nest of assassins. Honest tariff reform
has been stabbed in the back. In no
wise has the admirable platform upon
which Cleveland and an overwhelming
democratic congressional majority were
elected been lived up to. Under such
conditions there is no reason to repine
at the reproof administered the democ
racy by the people at the late elections.
The party needed a licking and got it.
Perhaps it will stimulate the people
down at Washington to bestir them
selves for the avoidance of a like chas

Senator Hill opposes the income tax
feature of the Wilson tariff bill, and
warns his fellow democrats that they are
pushing a measure that may lose the
party their control of the senate, the
house, the presidency, the electoral
votes of New York, New Jersey, Con
necticut and probably every northern
state; that it is regarded as a scheme of
spoliation, an unwarranted sectional
attack upon their citizens of means. He
directs attention to 18G0 and the ultra
demands then made upon the democratic
party which resulted in its overthrow,
and the triumph of its political enemies.
In mentioning the names of congres
sional candidates in the Sixth district,
John T. Mallalieu of Kearney is being
spoken of a good deal of late. The Re
porter man knows John Mallalieu like a
book, and no better man could be select
ed by the republicans of the Sixth dis
trict to represent them in Congress. He
is honest and able, and has a faculty of
making friends that would make him a
very strong candidate. They are talking
of a number of good men in that district,
but none better than Mallalieu. Sew

WiNon Kill Assaulted by Senator lHlxe for
it Free Trade Character.
Senator Lodge (Mass.) addressed the
senate Wednesday in opposition to the
pending tariff bill and in the course of
his remarks said: "It is always well to
look at things as they are, even if the
thing be free trade, to which some per
sons in beautiful language have conse
crated themselves. It is best, if we
would treat it intelligently, to know that
by itself and of itself the tariff is a busi
ness question and protection and free
trade only take on a different and far
deeper meaning when they are considered
as parts of a question between far-reaching
principles, which I believe involves
the future of our race and the existence
and progress of the highest civilization.
It is in the latter and far graver aspect,
as I have already said, that I prefer first
to treat them."
If, he argued, the American manufac
turer does not make money it is quite
certain that he will not employ labor,
and, therefore, the workingmen will not
make money either. Our manufacturers
believe that under free trade they must
either go out of business or reduce labor
costs. They naturally do not care to do
the former, for that is ruin, and they are
very unwilling to try the latter, because
reducing labor costs means lowering
wages, which means, in turn, vast indus
trial disturbances, and that is ruin too,
or something very near it.
a kf.cokd of disaster.
Turning from industry to agriculture,
he inquired: "Has English agriculture
been benefited by free trade as Cobden
and others of his school predicted? It
is a matter of public notoriety that the
record of agriculture in England of late
years is but a record of disaster. There
was nothing left them of the boasted
superiority of free trade over protection
but the promise to increase trade, and to
refute this claim he gave the percentage
of increase, by decades, of England and
the United States, which showed that in
the decade 1870-80 the trade of the Unit
ed States, under protection, had increas
ed nearly four times as much as that of
England, while from 1880-90 it was more
than seven times greater. Such an out
line had been the history and results of
free trade in tho only country which had
adopted it.
advantages of reciprocity.
He touched lightly upon the question
of reciprocity and showed the advanta
ges which had flowed from it and the
growth of trade which followed the
adoption of reciprocity treaties. Our
first object should be to hold our own
market, because it is the largest and
best; and that being done and our own
market securely guarded, our next object
should be to increase our outside mar
kets by any possible device. By means
of invention and protection we have been
enabled thus far to maintain higher
rates of wages in the United States,
while lowering the price of the necessa
ries and comforts of life and raising the
standard of living. If we abandon pro
tection we shall probably in many direc
tions increase prices, by withdrawing
American competition from the competi
tion of the world, and thereby raising
the world's price. In any event we shall
lower wages. Protection does not make
high wages, but it helps to prevent their

crease, I believe to be essential, because
I believe good wages absolutely vital to
the stability of our institutions and of
our society. Protection in its widest
aspect is something far more than a
mere question of schedules or of national
bookkeeping. It is an effort to defend
by legislation onr standards of living
just as the exclusion of Chinese and of
contract labor was. The reduction of
wages thus far made is trilling to what
will come if this bill becomes a law and
men seek to adjust themselves to the
new conditions. Such a lowering of
wages is not to be contemplated without

" Our physicians in the children's depart
ment have spokea highly of their experi

and although we only have among our
medical supplies what is known as regular
products, yet we are free to confess that the
merits of Castoria has won us to look with
favor upon it."
