"A concerted attempt la being made bv Democratic organ* to create the impression that the McKlnley law favored the sugar reQnlng Interests of this country to an unjustifiable extent," says the New York Press. "A brief statement of the facts may be instructive. The MoKlnley act afforded legitimate and honorable protection for the sugar refining interests in the United States. It also afforded effective protection for the sugar planters of Loultaua. It did this in accordance with the established Republican principle that every lawful and productive American Interest Is entitled to just protection. But the MoKinley law did more than this. By a wise and economical bounty clause It laid the foundation of a great beet sugar Industry In the West, an Industry whose development under •table protection would assuredly have enabled the United Stales to produce Us own sugar within a short time. It laved the American people the turn of forty millions yearly by making raw •ugar free and cheapening this necessary of life to every consumer in the land. 1 'The nondescript measure now before the Senate destroys the beat sugar industry absolutely. It Invites the Sugar Trust to buy and Import free of duty all the sugar it needs for refining purposes during the year 1895. On the first day of that year It Increases the price of «ugar to every American consumer by a cent and a half a pound thus taking from the pockets of the people more than fifty millions of dollars in twelve months and transferring It to the coffers of the sugar refiners. Under this cunningly devised plan the government will receive no appreciable revenue from sugar during the next year. The people will be taxed, not for public benefit, but for private profit. No such out. rageoui scheme of robbery and extortion was ever proposed by a political party In the history of the United States. Democratic newspapers can not obscure the Iniquity of this Infamous arrangement by wholesale false-* hood about the McKlnley law. The plunderers 1 bill must oot be allowed to pass the Senate." THE State Board of Charities has been frequently criticised for Its ten- tenoy to whitewash. According to the Indianapolis Journal "Dr. S. Wler Mitchell of Philadelphia, one of the leading physicians of the country, delivered an addresi recently In which he declared that the management of most of the hospitals for insane In this country is characterized by incompetence, incapacity, recklessness and extravagance. He attributes this condition ot things mainly to the fact that the hospitals are more or less under political control and their officials, from highest to lowest ap. pointed through political pulls. No person conversant with the facts will question the substantial accuracy of Dr. Mitchell's statement. The conditions of the hospitals is better in some States than In others, according as they have been more or less removed from political control, but the abuse is still sufficiently widespread to justify Dr. Mitchell's strictures. In this State there haa been some Improvement in recent years under the continual lashing of the press and the demands of public opinion, but the vicious system of political control still remains.

A Grand Observatory IB Now Be. toff Built for It To B« t.oo»t»d at Lukn G»nev», Wli.— Krrry Modern SeUmtino Invention to Be Uiod-To Be Ready VFlthln XwelTO Monchi. Of the astronomical observatories in this country or abroad, in point of architecture or scientific equipment, the Yerkes observatory of the University of Chicago at Lalte Geneva is easily first. The plans for housing the great forty-inch refractor have been completed,' and work will be begun on tho building- nt once. As far as location poi-s, the new observatory will have all that can be desired. In the middle of a tract of sixty acres near Williams bay. on Lake Geneva, Wis., it is far enough removed from railways or heavy traffic teams so that no jar or dust will obstruct the observer. It has an altitude of 1,200 feet above the sea level and 000 feet above Lake Michigan. In its pen- eral position it resembles that of the famous observatory at Potsdam, Germany. The buildings, as designed, are admirably suited for their purpose. They are not only finely arranged for scientific works', but are also artistically elegant. They are on <i far larper and grander scale than tho buildings at Lick. They are to be fireproof, tho necessity of keeping 1 records of astronomical observations covering, a long period makes tho erection of almost imperishable structures imperative. At one end of the building the main dome will be erected for the big telescope. A comparison of it with the other great lenses of the world shows its magnitude. The refractor of the Lick telescope has a diameter of thirty- six inches, four Inches less than the Yerkes glass. Tho largest telescope in Europe is that at Poulkowa, near St. Petersburg, which has a diameter.of thirty inches. There is soon to be one built at Greenwich, England, with a diameter of twenty-seven inches. Beneath the dome are tho electrical appliances for moving the flpor, revolving the dome, and for moving the other machinery necessary for working the big telescope. The main dome with two smaller domes is a connecting, building nearly two hundred feet long, which will be THE YEBKES OBSEBVATOBY. used for offices, lecture-rooms, laborv tories, etc. Unlike the Lick building, the hallway runs through the middle of this building and not along the side, and consequently gives more room, light and ventilation. A dome fora twelve-inch glass and one foraslxteen^ inch glass will be connected by wings to the main building. These telescopes will be used lor all kinds of general work, and for work on the sun. Observations of comets can also be taken as well with a small glass as with a large one. At tho end farthest from the big dome a room will be erected for a meridian circle for determining the absolute position ot stars, their right ascension and declination. : The board of trustees decided to locate the observatory at Lake Geneva on the track of land donated by Mr. William Johnson. The buildings have been planned by Prof. George E. Hale and Prof. 8. W. Burnham, of the university, and Architect Henry IvesCobb, though Mr. Yerkes' keen business insight has frequently been called into requisition. The lenses will be ready within sij^months if desired and the buildings, on which work will be commenced at once, will probably be ready for dedication at the convocation next March. The corps of instructors includes Profs. George E. Hale and S. W. Burnham, and Dr. T. J. J. See, of Chicago, and Prof. Barnard, of Lick. Vau«r'§ Excellent Beeord. "There is a popular impression," said Mrs. Minton Warren, wife of Prof. Warren, of the Johns Hopkins university, in a recent address, "that college girls do not marry—that is comparatively speaking—and that men, as a rule, are afraid of tho college girl. Statements of this sort, I remember, once reached the ears of the Vassar girls, and they obtained statistics of marriages among college girls and non- college girls, and triumphantly proved that the proportion of weddings among the former was larger than among the latter. But this was not all. They discovered that among all the marriages of Vassar girls in the history of the college there had been but one divorce." , Hll Vlrtn« Set Forth. In the old Pine Greek cemetery at Jersey Shore, Roulette, Pa,, is a headstone bearing the following unique Inscription: "James McMurray. Born in Ireland June 11, 1704. Emigrated to America in 1790.

FrocperUjr. President Cleveland is a remarkable person. In his recent veto message of the seigniorage bill he rescued from innoeuout dctuetvdi some startling dis- coverlei that deserve to be set In gilt frames and posted where all can see them. The first of these remarkable discoveries is a* follows: "No. L—Our recovery has, nevertheless, steadily progressed." This reminds us of the boy in the district school when the teacher one day gavn him an example. It was the old familiar story of tb«frog in tho well: "He climbs up two feet during the day time and tildes back a foot at night" The inquiry wa»: "How many day* will It tsko him to reach the top?" In till* ca»e, however, the teacher set it a little different for the purpose of testing the pupil's ability. He made the frog climb up two feet during the day and slide back three feet during the night The boy worked all the forenoon, all during the nooning, and all the afternoon. At various times the teacher asked him if he was in trouble. "No," he said, "I am doing first rate. I understand the problem, and I'll get it after awhile." Four o'clock, closing time, arrired, and still the boy was ciphering. The teacher stood over him, and surveyed the vast amount of figures covering both sides of the slate and all the white paper he could get hold ot The boy looked up from hia work, blushed, and triumphantly said: "Well, teacher, I haven't gat it through, but I have done well I've got him clear into hades aud to-morrow I'll flnlih him." If Cleveland's recovery ia progressing In the same direction as the frog, the explanation of the Cozey movement and the general unrest throughout the country is made more clear. His second discovery is: "Confidence is to such an extent reinstated as to produce the most encouraging results." Our comment on this is that there are strikes throughout Pennsylvania and all the coal countries of the United States, there are hungry workmen in every city, populists, Coxeyites, and a general class of unemployed workingmen who are talking of marching on Washington to cause legislation in their favor. This sort of confidence and these results are not such as to tend to produce an abiding trust in the future, or faith in the stability of such government as we now have. His third proposition is: "The ./heels of domestic industry have been slowly set in motion." They may be set in motion, but mostly and like the frog, they are going backward. There are no industries in this country, and there are no farmers, except, perhaps, a very few, who are finding in these days a fair equivalent for their labor, their capital and their skill. His fourth ia: "Our recovery being so well under way, nothing should be done to check our convalescence." If we are to convalescence in this fashion it would be well to have the hearse at hand, as this sort of conval- escence requires a funeral sermon. From his eyrie in the white house he tbtaks he knows the condition of the country. As he has not been west of the Mississippi his eyes must bo those of faith. While we are convalescing, while the wheels are slowly set in motion, while confidence is producing such encouraging remits, trains are being selted, the militia is ordered out in various stated, and the wine everywhere are thinking with anxiety what is to be the outcome and whither we are drifting. COMMENT AND OPINION. ' tyLess than two short years ago our democratic friends were writing the obituary of tht republican party. And now when they gate on the doorstep they see the cat bos returned in the form of a catamount. — St. Louis Globe-Democrat jyThe town of Clifton. O., contains two hundred and fifty inhabitants; two-thirds of them vofed for Cleveland in 18»8. They have published an open letter In which they declare that they wUl never rote the democratic ticket again. They sent their petition to Washington, signed by one hundred and fifty of their number, praying that tho Wilson bill might not become s> law. t3Tfit the beginning of Orover Cleveland's second term public men of his own party faith were almost unanimous in proclaiming his praise. It would be considered now an exception to the general rule to hear one of these leading democrats advocate anything good in Mr. Cleveland; but, on the other hand, he is usually condemned in all his utterances and matters of public policy. QyThe verdict returned by the people of Indiana against Daniel W. Voorhees, charged with conspiring against the public good, was that of "guilty." The court withholds sentence until January, 1897, when Daniel will be called upon to stand up and respond to the interrogatory of the judge, whether he has anything to say why the sentence of the people should not be passed upon him. ESJTTlred people are not hard to persuade to lay down their burdens. Fourteen months of tho burden of democracy causes feeble knees to tremble and tired limbs to halt The unloading process has begun. New York, New Jersey and Indiana are piling up these old democratic burdens, giving notice that In the future they prefer to enter the unequal race of politics without being handicapped. ' {3FThe Boston Globe wants to know what would be the result if the republicans in Washington should succeed in keeping the McKinley tariff in operation. That Is easy, neighbor. It would mean what this country needs more than anything else— a return of the prosperity that sent its gladsome messages into millions of hearts and homes during the years of 189t and 1892, and give assurance to all the wondering poor of tho nation to-day that employment snail once more be obtainable. _ A horse can draw on metal rails one and two-thirds times as much as on oiiphalt pavement and three and one- third times as much as on good Belgion Awaruea highest Honors-World's F«lr.
