CasB county's vote on the motion to settle the Lake county contest as it was settled stood 29 yeas and 6 nays. This gave the Johnston men 76 und the Landls men 78, or two majority. The decision made Lake county stand 15 to 15 80 that it would not have changed the result. Now elffhi Case county men say they were instructed or pledged to Johnston and intended to vote for him when It came to a ballot. This wou'd have given Johnston 78 and Landis 76 so that the Johnston men were not in any way defrauded but were simply soared into running away when they had a sure victory. The decision which caused them to bolt Is the universal decision in contests of this sort and there are dozens of precedents for it. The bold tront of the Land's men soared them out. The eight Johnston men In this county are Porter, of Clln, ton; Williams, of Miami; Mln- thorn, of Boone; Klngery, of Beth- lehen); Conrad, of Bethlehem; Morrow of Adams Hlllls of Jackson and Sharts of Tipton. These men refused to promise to vote for Landls but did promise »nd did intend to vote for Johnston. All but one of them were chosen on that platform and Judge Johnston would have received their support If his friends had not fled Ignomlnlously. Then there was one delegate In White and one In Newton, pledged the same way, that Johnston would have received. The decision in the Lake county contest would not have defeated Judge Johnston and as bis defeat waa due to tils own bad management and his readiness to bolt it does not seem that he has any real ground of complaint. On the other hand in bolting the con- ven tlon and in calling meetings to stir up dissensions bit friends have refuse d lo abide by the majority vote of tho convention and, worse than that, have not waited for the result of an appeal in the regular way but have set about to create prejudice against the regu. ar nominee, who, whatever may be •aid of the method of his nomination, Is the duly nominated candidate until set aside by the action of those to whom appeal has been made.

' ' ••••'•• A GLANCE BACKWARD. A Sharp Contrast Dctwmn the Tcart ot tBOa »nd 1S94. ' The pi'esentconditio 1 of business and industry In the United States Is known and admitted of all men in every part of the country. All the manufacturing and productive interests are crippled, closed up or seriously embarrassed. At least estimate one million work- inf men, who heretofore have had good work, good wajros and comfortable homes, stand idle. Many of these are safferinpT for tlio want of the necessaries of life, mid their wives and children are in the sumo condition. It is a serious question for them to obtain suitable clothing lor their families, to buy school books for their children; or to Hocure necessary food and meet the common everyday expenses of life. Many of these men go from town to town in search of labor; they find their fellow workingmen in similar straits, and on all hands discover the financial conditions which are tending to lower wages and reduce their condition from its forjner prosperous stata It is well for us to look this question squarely in the face. Lot us bee what •re the causes which have led to this condition. Let us see how things stood under the McKinley bill, under a republican administration, and how they stand now with the threat of the Wll- gon bill, the threat of the abolition of protection and a democratic president, senate and house. The elections occurred in November of 1883. It will be well to find what the stat« of affairs was previous to that date. July 16, 1892, the Boston Herald, a supporter of Cleveland and in favor of the reduction of customs duties, said: "Where 1* the Idle woolen mill to-day? Thorn li none. • • • Not only are the great majority of tbe woolen mills employed, but many are contemplating enlargement* and Improvements. Wb»t doei all tola mean! It moans the great- eit consumption of wool the country ba» ever known for years." July 17, 1883, the New York Herald, an ultra democratic paper, remarked: •The business ot the country Is In a provok- ln«lj healthy condition. • • • New Industrial enterprise! for manufacturing Iron, cotton and woolen fabrloi are going Into operation In nrloui sectloni. In the faoe ol inch a condition of things the calamity howlers mult r*- illent" March, 1888, but, not desiring to. recognize the true cause, he and his party associates charged them to the Sherman law. After much procrastination ne summoned congress; and, largely by bis personal influence, succeeded in hiving that act repealed. They charged that with this act repealed prosperity would immediately resume its sway, the wheels of industry would again revolve, good wages and plenty of work would bless the workingman, and all our ills would be removed. The Sherman law was repealed and we have watched vainly. The remedy did iiot touch the disease. The threap of the titter spoliation of our industrial conditions was broader and deeper than any Sherman law. It was not silver, in its purchase or its non-purchase. It was the threat of free trade and the destruction of our protective system. THE M'KIN'-EY BILL. Some Thlne» « Did—The Practical An- «wer to ]>emoiT»tir Charg-ei. "You said it would develop no new industries; it created them by tha hundreds. You said it would bring no resultant benefits to our workmen; it secured for thcmjrfsnl urged employment and increased Vwajros. You said it would enhance the costof the protected article; it cheapened it to the consumer. You said it would diminish our foreign trade; it augmented it in 1S93 to $1,857,080,010, an increase over the previous year ot $128,283,804. You said it would shut out our products from foreign markets; our export trade in- umeto 11,030,278,148, the largest ever known in the history of the country and exceeding the value of our imports by $203,876,686. You said it would paralyze our domestic trade; it was never morn vigorous than In the years immediately following its enactment. And so every prophecy of ill found swift and complete refutation in increased industrial activity on every hand and enhanced Individual and national prosperity." — Mr. Burrows, in the House, January 9, 1891. OPINIONS OF THE PRESS. tJTThe democratic party, we notice, is still running down Hill all over the r 'NERO FIDDLED; CLEVELAND FISHEa—Chicago Tribune. R. O. Dun A Co.. in * commercial report (it must be noticed this house it not political but atrietly business) summed up the history of the fiscal year thus: "A fiscal year never mato&ed In the history of t&e 'country in volume of industrial produo- tlon, in magnitude of domestic azobames, ot in foreign trade, nas jnit olo*el" On the 10th of September, 180U, the Dry Goods Economist said: "Drtts (foods manufacturers ought to be happy this season because they are busy delivering the «ood» already ordered and book- Ing orders for more. • • • Tfcey con confidently looH forward to a continuous run of business for the n*xt six months." The final quotation, that shows this state of affairs, may well be made from the. last message (December 6. 1892) made by President Harrison to congress: "The RBneral conditions affecting the commercial und Industrial Interests of the Unlwd States are In the highest degree favoraDW. A comparison of the existing conditions with those of tbamoit favored period In the history of the country Trill, I believe, show that so hlRb a dogreo of prosperity and so general a dllfualon of the comfort* of llio were nevir before enjoyed by our people. • • • There has never been a time In our history when worlt was-10 abundant or when wages were as high, whether measured by the currency In whloh they »ro paid or by their power to supply the necessaries and comforts of life." . The foregoing ^xtracte will show the condition of affairs in 1882. In November of that year the result of the elections foretold the repeal of the McKinley tariff bill and the free trade policy on the part of the democratic party. From that day to this we have had, first, distress, uneasiness and doubt; we h»re had the curtailment of business, the reduction of volume of enterprises, and a general shrinkage involving the business of the country. Little by llttlo w» hnvc gone on diminishing our exports. Whe*t has gone lower. Every product of the farmer has diminished In value. Our manufactured articles have gone to such a price that there is no profit in manufacturing, and manufacturers nav« bad to reduce their forces and their output. Reductions in wage schedule* have been made. Strikes have followed until the result is now seen In a financial co* dition hitherto unknown in this broad fend. • • These are not idle word* The IMM •et forth abOTe «•* IncontromttWe.; No one whoresdi this article has been exempt from the tax of this condition.

And yet the republicans brought order out of chaos, and such prosperity as the world never before saw. They can do it again—more than that, they will—Chicago Inter Ocean. WOf the sixty-two cities'in Indiana which have just held elections fifty- three elected republican mayors and nine democratic. This is equivalent to a republican majority of about fifty thousand on a state election. The state gave Cleveland a pluralityof 7,125. A change of more than fifty-seven thousand votes In eighteen months is extraordinary, but that is what Indiana thinks of democracy now that she has had a taste of it—Cincinnati Times- Star.

THE GIANT B&RER. Some Intermtlnr and Initructln FaoU In Entomology. Under this head we have a variety of mechanical insects which apply their inherent skill with more certainty at all times than their boastful superiors, the genus homo sapient Some of these are provided with' saws, by which channels are cut in the bark of trees, and the eggs are deposited therein and covered by a plastic substance. Others perforate by a two-bladed device acting against itself not unlike a compound drill, while others perforate by a punch-like instrument by striking It into the tender bark of shrubs by the rapid motion of the insects; all the grooves, holes or channels being the recipients of eggs. But no inaect in all this class of natural history creates when at work more interest than the giant borer. It is, when not at work, about one and three-fourths inches long from the forehead to the tip of its screw-pointed gimlet auger, the latter projecting in rear of the abdomen. Its legs are nearly an inch and a half long, and the sternum is very strong; and from thenco to the tip of the abdomen is a groove or channel, in which the gimlet auger lies when not in use. This gimlet auger consists of a gimlet pod, a screw point and a shank which is hinged to the sternum to swing ninety degrees. The diameter of the pod of the auger inspected was one- twelfth of an inch, and it, with its screw point, was of the most exquisite finish, and in mechanics perfect. Its cutting edges were so sharp, fine and smooth that tho edge of a razor was comparatively a saw. The composition of the device Is so hard that a watchmaker's file did not scratch it The shank was quite flexible, yet very strong. The insect was observed to be boring In a fire-killed beech tree. The process was to bring the auger at right angles to the tree, while the insect walked around the auger as a central pivot When the pod became filled with chips the auger was withdrawn and the chips were removed by one foot, and the auger was again inserted in the hole. That this can be done without mistake the head Is provided with eyes whloh can see back and beneath the abdomen, a most singular provision by which the insect can see to insert the auger in the hole. This process continued until the legs of the insect were sprawled out, still moving round and turning the auger until a hole about one inch in depth had been bored. Then the Insect straightened out on its legs, withdrawing tho auger which was brought Into the said groove. Six eggsf.each over one-eighth of an inch long and less In diameter than the hole, were deposited therein, each egg being directed to its place by two flexible appendages attached to the abdomen. Then, in an instant, the insect was gone. But while I upbraided myself that the Insect was not captured, It returned with a load of mud and plastered it over the hole. At this time the Insect was caught and inspected.- Goodrich gives no illustration, or description of this borer. The more complete treatises on entomology, however, show and describe this insect, but I have been unable to learn that any of the more distinguished naturalists ever saw the insect In the operation of boring. The one mentioned was tho only one seen in a period of seven years in fields where dead trees exhibited the multitudes of work done by this borer; it is therefore presumable that the work is done mostly at night The grub, or worm, while subsisting in the woods is provided with a resisting headplate and disc-cutter diaironallv In front of it The hardest £ Awaroeci highest Honors-World's Fair.
