At Philadelphia they have instituted
a method of getting rid of their garbage
that is said to be very successful. It in

The New York World sent out tele

four Fremont National banks replied
that they would take $50,000.
Mrs. Mattie Mveks, who for over

charged upon the payment of $100 to a
lawyer and to a private detective of the
district attorney.
The frontispiece of the January Re
view of Reviews is a reproduction of
what is known in Germany as Emjieror
William's cartoon. The Emperor did
not draw the picture, but gave the idea
and a rough sketch to an artist, approv
ed of the finished result, and presented
the original to the Czar of Russia. The
motive of the work is an exhortation to
the nations of Europe to "join in the
defense of your faith and your home."
It is stated that the city attorney of
Omaha is delaying action on a resolu
tion directing the legal department to
take immediate steps to obtain the
amount of Henry Bolln's defalcation
from his bondsmen. Attorney Connell
takes the position that it would bo use
less to go into court until the experts
have determined what part of the total
defalcation is to be charged to Bolln's
raspective terms of office. The experts
have been working at this phase of the
matter for some weeks and are said to
be yet far away from a definite amount.
Major Peakxax, who died recently at
his home in Omaha, was among the
earliest settlers in the state, locating at
Nebraska City in 1854. He was 65 years
old and one of the most genial of men,
fall of the milk of human kindness for
his friends, and a hot shot always ready
from a full box for bis opponents in any
contest He was a born humorist, seem
ingl and if there was a ludicrous side
to any event, he was sure to find it. He
was best known as "Squatter Governor"
' of the great state of Nebraska, and his
messages to the burlesque "Third House"
of the legislature were always an event
of the times, the hits on state politicians
being often "rich, rare and racy." Peace
to hw memory.
No one ever thought of introducing so
expensive a feature as lithographic color
work in the days when the leading mag
azines cold for $4.00 a year and 35 cents
a copy. But times change, and the
magazines change with them. It has
remained for The Cosmopolitan, sold at
one dollar a year, to put in an extensive
lithographic plant capable of printing
390,000 pages per day (one color). The
Jknnarv issue presents as a frontispiece
a water-color drawing by Eric Pape,
illustrating the last story by Robert
Ioais -Stevenson, which has probably
ever been excelled even in the pages of
the finest dollar French periodicals. The
cover of The Cosmopolitan is also chang
ed, a drawing of page length by the
Canons Paris artist Rossi, in lithographic
colors on white paper takes the place of
the aaanilla back with its red stripe.

We are in receipt of a copy of a
paper published at Kirksville, Missouri,
in the interest of the novel method of
the treatment of diseases called Osteop
athy. It seems that there is a large
school and hospital at that place devoted
to the teaching and the practice of this
new system of treatment without drugs.
The founder of the system was an allo
pathic physician, who lost three children
by spinal meningitis and says that this
put him to thinking and investigating,
and his general conclusions, as set forth
in this paper, are that man's body is a
machine, a wonderful, living machine,
and when all the parts (bones, tendons,
muscles, blood-vessels, .etc.,) are where
they ought to be, there is health; if any
are displaced, there is the contrary.
Food and water and pure air fed to the
machine, he claims, (with oversight by a
trained anatomist and physiologist when
anything goes wrong) are sufficient ordi
narily for the normal running of the
machine. Accidents, etc., may call for
the exceptional work of a surgeon. A.
T. Still is the deviser of the system and
pupils from his school have started out
to compete for business with the allo
paths, the homeopaths and all the other
"paths." One of these, F. D. Parker, was
brought into Justice Vien's court at
Council Bluffs the other day to answer
to a prosecution instituted by the Coun
cil Bluffs Medical society, the charge
being that Parker was "practicing medi
cine without a permit from the state
board of health." The account of the
proceedings in the trial iB very interest
ing, but too lengthy for us to copy. The
result was that there being no evidence
before the jury that Parker had ever
held himself out as a healer or that he
used medicine or surgical instruments,
the verdict was "not guilty," the defense
introducing no evidence. A number of
local physicians were present at the trial,
besides people and patients in sympathy
with the osteopath. One of these piped
forth from the jury box: "Was it a crime
for Jesus Christ to heal on the streets of
Jerusalem without a permit from the
state board of health?" "That's it,"
roared Finley, the attorney prosecuting,
with the angry blood rushing to his
face, and making it resemble a boiled
lobster: "bring on your crowd of hood
lums and let 'em cheer. If Jesus Christ
shonld come in town today and set up a
saloon on Broadway it would be a crime,
just as much as for any one else." Jus
tice Vien rapped for order, which, the
reporter wittily remarks, "came when it
got ready."
They get after some things in the
cities a little more closely than in small
places these days, and it is well enough
to keep track of what is going on. Dr.
Reilly of the health department of the
city of Chicago says that the alarming
increase of intestinal diseases is due
wholly to the drinking water. There it
is procured from the lake and the people
have been cautioned to boil it before
using it for drinking purposes, which
many have neglected to do, and conse
quently winter cholera is epidemic all
over the city. It is a disease of the
intestines and caused by drinking bad
or impure water. The health depart
ment of Chicago are making an analysis
of the water each day and claimed it is
improving, but still not fit to use for
drinking without boiling. The same
condition of things may be safely assnm-
j ed in most places in the country where
surface water, or water nearly at the
surface is used. There is, for instance,
here a big difference between the water
in the ordinary drive well, and in the
deeper wells which constitute the supply
for our city waterworks, and the water
of our very deep wells the artesian, ia
still purer.
A Wont for Cady.
The Schuyler Sun assures Congress
man Meiklejohn that while it would
have been proud to support him for a re
nomination, it cannot and will not at
present assist in gratifying his guberna
torial aspirations. The reason given is
that the Sun's choice for governor is
"the Hon. A. E. Cady, of St. Paul, and
as long as there is any chance of his
being a candidate he shall remain that
choice for the reason that the Sun be
lieves he is deserving of the nomina
tion." The boys up in this neck-o'-the-woods
are just no v- of theopiuion that
Mr. Cady would lie a mighty good man
to beat Si HolcouTb for congress with,
but he has not as yet given anyone
caiiso for believing that he desires po
litical honors of any nature whatever.
However, if he shonld decide to enter
the lists against Meiklejohn et al be

The Blair Pilot, supposed to be an
impartial observer at close range, of
affairs at Omaha says of the Bolln de
falcation: "To an outsider it looks as if every
possible effort of the bondsmen, the ex
perts put on the books, the Comptroller
whose office it was to Know the condition
of the city treasury nt all times and the
united effort of all the official power and
influence of the city except its mayor,
has been playing to screen Bolln and
his deputy and to deceive the public as
to the true state of facts."
It seems that three or four high-priced
experts have been on the treasurer's
books ever since Bolln's exposure' came
early last summer and they found prac
tically nothing so far as the public could
learn more than was known within the
first three days until an admission of
of the loss of a $77,000 bond item was
reluctantly forced from them a few days
since by outsiders and largely through
the efforts of the Bee.

touches our self-respect, and the nation
has very promptly indicated its deter

course this means that we will fight if
we must, or that we assume that England
does. It is simply that we do not intend
to be bullied, even by our nearest of kin.
AmrrlcM Protective Tariff Leajrae's Aa
bb1 Addr to Votrr Democratic Slo
gans Xo lAtager I lave Effect A New
Snare Invented by the Eaemy.
The annual address of the American
Protective Tariff league, prepared by
Hon. Joseph E. Thropp, at the request
of the board of managers, is as follows:
To the American Voter:
Since our last annual meeting much
has occurred to justify the organiza
tion and continued work of the league.
The protracted discussion of the tariff
by the enemies of the protective system,
who h'ad been intrusted by the vote of
1892 with the control of the govern
ment, and the widespread suffering
which resulted through their vicious
distortion of facts, had a tendency to
cause the more timid protectionists to
become discouraged, and they seemed
willing to compromise on almost any
terms. Some senators became so alarm
ed, as the couditioi. of the country con
tinued to grow worse under the strain,
that they feared to resort to extreme
measures to prevent the passage of a
tariff reduction law, lest their constitu
ents, in their anxiety for "peace at any
price, " might not sustain them.
We felt this depression, fear and un
certainty, but knew that the battle was
for tho industrial welfare of our people
and country, and we strongly urged sen
atois to resist tariff reduction to the ut
most, believing that a few weeks of un
certainty were far preferable to several
years under a bad law. AH did not re
sist as we had urged, and the result is
tho burden of a mongrel tariff law.
This law affords inadequate protection
to oar workinginen and industries,
fails to renew prosperous times and
does not afford enough revenue to meet
tho expenses of the government.
The league had to contend against
the discouragements referred to, but its
officers felt that the cause which we ad
vocated wad the people's cause, and
that the appeal should be niado to the
peoplo's representatives. Efforts to gain
needed support were systematically
pushed; means of reaching the people
through the press of the country were
largely increased; facts showing there
suits of tariff tinkering were carefully
gathered and widely circulated; whole
some truths were constantly presented
to tho thoughtful voter to show him the
dangers which confronted him. The wis
dom of this course has been fully vindi
cated. The revolution which took place
in the publio mind, as shown in Novem
ber last, has never been equaled in our po
litical history. Catch words or phrases
no longer blind the people. Such slogans
as "Tho tariff is a tax." "Robber bar
ons," "Taxing tho many to enrich tho
few," etc., no longer have effect
The nowly invented phrase, "Tariff
agitation most be suppressed because it
injures hu&iuess," is a purposely mis
leading snare of the enemy. The people
know that all American interests grew
and wero made stronger during the dis
cussion of the law of 1890, more and
inoro as it was made manifest that safe
protection of our industries would pre
vail, and not n single American interest
was injured. On tho other hand, after
the election of 1S93, as it became more
and more certain that protection would
be weakened, industry fter industry
felt the blighting effects of threatened
free trade, which culminated in the pas
sago of the Wilson-Gorman monstrosity.
The people aro in favor of protection.
They arc determined to have the Ameri
can markets for American products. If
those who should be their leaders and
champions lack courage, the American
voters do not
Now that a calm review of the situ
ation can be taken it seems proper to ex
press clearly tho views and policy of
the supporters of the league. We be
lieve that our country has varieties of
soil and climate enough to produce
nearly if not all that we as a people
need, and that hidden beneath the sur
face are mineral resources sufficient to
add to our comfort and wealth. We be
lieve in developing these under an
American policy and an American sys
tem of wages. We believe in considering
first our own markets tho best in the
world and protecting them; then we
favor trading with foreign nations where
the result is trade and not simply pur
chase in other words, reciprocal trade.
We know that if we produce what we
need and sell it within ourselves we as
a nation have both the products and the
money the wealth while if we per
mit other nations to produce and sell
to ns we may have their products, but
they will have our money.
Protection laws are not sectional, bnt
apply in their benefits to all portions of
our land. The people by their votes
have indorsed this view. For the first
time in many years the "solid south"
has been broken, and protectionist sen
ators have been elected from the south
to help restore the United States senate
to the friends of protection. The people
have learned that no wall divides the
north from the south, the east from the
west The tariff laws, which have en-
The advocacy and discussion of a
lower, tariff have invariably brought
ruin and destruction; bnt on the con
trary, the advocacy and discasrion of
protection have brought success and
stability to every American interest
We do not believe in a tariff for rev
enue with incidental protection, bnt we
do believe in a tariff for adequate pro
tection. We know that the wisdom of
he friends of jo4eotionwill, lathe fu-
tmre as in the past be capable of devis
ing means to supply all the revenue that
is needed to maintain the pablic credit
We have full faith in the patriotism
and wisdom of the people. We will
push forward the work of the league
ia all sections of our land, feeling that
in the end the policy of protection will
be restored in full effect, and that some
of the immense losses that we have gof
fered will be regained.

The New York Costota Iloase Is Taxed t
the Utmost Handling Imports.
A stroll through the wholesale dry
goods district of New York citj will
convinco the most skeptical that whole
sale houses, largo and small, are taking
advantage of this era of Gorman free
trade to buy everything in their lino
anywhere but in the United States. The
sidewalks along tho dry goods sections
are blocked with thoso strong, heavy
boxes bearing tho inscription "Made in
England," "Made in France," "Made
in Germany," eta
This looks to tho casual observer like
good times and prosperity, but ieu we
consider that each one of these foreign
boxes and bales throws a dampening
shower on our own furnace fires, and that
the prosperity is over tho water and not
here, the whole business assumes an
other aspect An employee of the New
York custom house has stated that dar
ling his 20 years of service ho has never
before seen such a volume of imports as
is now entering the country. The whole
custom house force as well as many sub
stitutes are employed on full time. This
is prosperity for tho custom house em
ployee, bnt it is destitution for the
American workman.
Meeker Missed Fire.
The state department recently circu
lated a report from Consul Meeker, Brad
ford, England, to the effect that Ameri
can woolen goods were being sold in the
Bradford market Oar worthy consul
went off at half cook. After firing off
his first report ho proceeded to investi
gate the subject, learning that one soli
tary case of samples of American cloth
had been furnished only to one Bradford
house to try and have their fabric placed
,in the Indian and South African mar
kets. Consul Meeker's anxiety to find a
foreign market for American goods, now
that our wall of protection has been
smashed down, evidently got the better
of his discretion. The state department
ought not to have circulated such a story
without proper investigation at this end
at least Inquiries should have been
made from our manufacturers and ex
porters. Democracy and Deficiency.

French trade statistics for January
show an increase of nearly $11,250,000
in exports. This gain, which amounts
to 25 per cent, "is attributed chiefly to
the recovery in trado with the United

that shonld be noted by the producers of
American raw material, by American
farmers, by American manufacturers
and by American wage earners.' '

FeU Orer the Doorstep of Natteaal Pros
perityLosses That Amonnted to Three
Times the Cost of the Civil War.
Various estimates have been made of
the cost to the country of the Fifty-third
congress and of the present free trade
administration. It is difficult to arrive
at a true estimate of the loss that the
people have suffered through, their folly
in November, 1892. This period of our
history has been concisely described by
Messrs. Clapp 8b Co., the New York
bankers, in their weekly circulars. On
Nov. 11, 1892, they said:
"The recent election shows the people
want to speculate. "
Four months later, on March 17, 1893,
shortly after the inauguration of Presi
dent Cleveland, they said:
"The shadow of general liquidation
falls over the doorstep of national pros
perity." Three months later, on June SO,
Clapp's circular said :
"The credit panic appears to have
crossed the continent, and scarcely four
months have passed and a billion of rep
resentative money has disappeared. "
In their 1893 souvenir they show that
the ?o railway receiverships rendered
necessary, that year involved an indebt

American manufacturing interests have
progressed through the instrumentality
of a protective tariff. The moro this
fact is impressed npon the south the bet

California Fruit Cheapened.
Nearly 4,000,000 pounds moro of for

wuewioK interior, aout in quaiuy ana quantity, xne umana uee, always to the front or the newspapers in the
west, has long been recognized as one of the leading publications in the conntry. It has done more, and is now
doing more, toward the upbuilding the great west, than any other paper.
About two years ago its publishers, determined to bring The Weekly
cotnutuj ui i vnu sram nuu tun Dwiw iiuiucuutieijr aujuiauig iieunwKs, put ine price aown to 3 uents per year
an unheard of figure for a 12-page weekly publication. This price still prevails. Mot content with this, the publish
ers of The Bee cast about for some additional first-class nublication of national refutation, to r.ffor with Tka n of
a price that would not exceed the figure usually charsed for a sinirle weeklv naner. Last venr the Knr Vnrb TVihnno
(Horace Greeley's paper) was secured and this paper was offered with the Weeklv Bee for 90 Cents per year. A simi
lar arrangement has been made this year. In addition, a similar contract has been made with the Cincinnati Enquir
er, a paper that ranks as high among the Democratic publications of this country as the Xew York Tribnne does
among the Republican newspapers.
To sum up we make the following four offers for this season, confident that they are equalled nowhere, either,
in the quality of matter published, nor in the quantity of good, up-to-date reliable news.
