The Democratic howl about Republican extravagance and "a billion dollar congress'' has proved a boomerang which instead of Injuring the Republicans has returned to strike the hinders squarely in the mouth. The same papers that have been telling their readers how they have been "robbed'' by a Republican congress are just now busily engaged in apologizing for still greater "robberies" on the part of the present Democratic house. Having harped so much about the reckless expenditures of the Fifty-first congress they do not find it easy to explain why the Fifty-second congress should increase those expenditures. Some of the apologies are unique, to say the least. For instance here is what the Charleston News and Courier lias to say about tin? Democratic river and harbor bill: "It will readily be seen that in such a bill, in order to secure (hie appropriations for really important works it becomes necessary to eoncilliate the Cattish Creek people by giving them, at least, part of what they demand in order to get their votes. This, it cannot be denied, isa very bad feature of river and liurbor bills, but so far as we can see it is a necessary evil." When it is remembered that the appropriation litis been nearly doubled, or increased to about fifty millions, it will be seen that the Democratic party is placing great dependence in the Catfish Creek people. Hut, alas for Democratic hope, the Catfish district will hardly be able to name the next president of the United States. Other Democratic newspapers, however, have carried their denunciations so far they find it impossible to defend the appropriations, and preserve an ominous silence. A few editors have the hardihood to go so far as to brave the displeasure of tlte Catfish Creek contingent, and denounce the profligacy of the Democratic majority, though more in a spirit of alarm than of rebuke. Among the latter is the Atlanta Constitution, which breaks out as follows; "What do the Democrats mean? What is the matter with them? At this rate, not only Mr. CLEVELAND but the party itself will be eliminated from the next campaign." It is really too bad that the Democratic greed could not have been curbed, at least until after the election. Some time ago the NEWS cautioned the Democrats in congress that they had better adjourn and go home. Time has demonstrated the wisdom of the advice, from a Democratic standpoint, and the NEWS is glad they did not act on the suggestion. just ns soon as the Republicans vacate them for something better. Tlut it does not. always happen that the Democrats wait for the Republicans to get off a plank before attempting to appropriate it for themselves. The New Hampshire Democrats, who by the way are red hot for f'l KVBl.Asn. have adopted a platform which calls for "a system of taxation so adjusted as to produce the necessary revenue for tlte adequate requirements of an honest government economically administered with the least possible burden upon the people, and ah "ording such incidental protection as meets every reasonable demand of American labor." "We hasten to serve notice that while we arc willing that New llamshiro Democrats should climb up onto the Republican tariff platform, we shall insist that they do not attempt to drag (iitovKlt CLEVELAND up with them. They must leave him down in the slough and mire of free trade. Such a ponderous weight of dead mutter would crush the best platform ever constructed. The free trailers who have asserted that there are 31,000 millionariesin the nited States, the majority of whom have made their fortunes out of profits resulting from protective legislation. Ill be overthrown by the facts soon be published by the New York Tribune. The tribune, for a year, has been carefully preparing a list of American - illionaires, and that list will show nit we have only 4,000 millionaires, 700 of whom made their fortunes in business not affected by the tariff and 'he others in business only partially iTected by the tariff. Ex-Governor CAMPHELL is without doubt telling the truth when he. says he has not had an inkling of the purpose of Mr. CLEVELAND to write a letter declining to be a candidate for the presidential nomination and then using his inlluence in favor of him, CASIP- 11EI.I-. It is quite probable that no one else has had an inkling of anything of the sort unless it be some over-enthusiastic boomer of Ohio's ex-governor for the presidency. r Olt HUl'KltlNlENllKNT OF I'UllLIU INSTUUO- TtON. 1 hereby ancounce myself as a candidate for the office of Superintendent of Public Instruction ol Reno county, subject to the decision of the Republican county convention, to be held July all, lHll'i.

The latest economic transfer brought about by the McKinley bill is the removal of one of the largest and best English eurpet mauufauturers to the United States. It takes ox-Speaker RKED to Interpret political phraseology. It was only a few days ago Unit he defined a "statesman'' as a "politician who i» dead." Now he describes "Democratic economy" us "opposition to overythin which you do uot want for yourself. When Mr .^EKD made this observation Kipling and New York City. The New York newspapers are pret ty generally engaged in lampooning RiiDVAitD Kii'i.ixa, because that gentleman has seen fit to publish in the London Times his impressions of the metropolis of the new world. If the New York editors will take, the trouble to inquire they will discover that how ever bud KJPLIN'O may be, a great many native born Americans fully en dorse all that he has said about the. worst governed city in the United States. Kit 'LiNO says of New York; "Tlie more 1 studied it, the more gro tesquuly bad it grew. It was bud in the paving of its streets, bad in its police management, and bud in its sanitary arrangements. No one that I talked to has approached the management of New York in a proper spirit, regarding it as the sh'ftless outcome of squalid barbarism and reckless extravagance. No one is like' ly to do so because reflection* cast on the long, narrow pig-trongl are construed as malevolent attacks against the spirit and the majesty of the great American people and lead to angry comparisons. Yet, if all the streets of London were permanently torn up and all the lamps were taken down, this would not prevent the New York streets, taken in a lump, from being first-cousins to the Zanzibar foreshore, or kin to the approaches of a KalUr kraal. "One of these days, you are told, everything will bo taken in hand and put straight, and the uuvirtuous rulers of the city will be swept away by a cyclone of popular indignation. Everybody will unanimously elect the right men, who will justly earn the enormouB salaries at present paid to inadequate aliens. At the same time the lawlessness ingrained by the gov ernors among the. governed during forty years of brutal levity of public conscience in regard to public duty the toughening and suppling c public morals, the reckless disregard for human life bred by impotent laws and fostered by familiarity with ncod less accidents and criminal neglect will miraculously disappear. I .J "In a heathen laud three tilings are supposed to be the pillars of a moder ntoly decent government. They are. Regard for human life; justice, criminal and civil; and good roads. Yet, in this Christian city, they think lightly of the first—their own papers, their own speech, and their own actions prove it, "It is neither seemly nor safe to hint that the government of the largest city in the United States is a despotism the alien, by the alien, for the alien, tempered with occasional insurrections of decent folk."; of The Chicago Times cautions the Democratic party that "there is no reason to believe that CLEVELAND can carry any western state, and there is reason to believe that, he will lose New York." So far the Times is eminently correct, but we cannot fully concur in the further declaration that "the Democracy is not wedded to an idol, and it ought not to be tied to a corpse." The New York Sun remarks that the CLEVEi.AiN 'u issue has already bedh 'tVst- ed twice this year, with the regular disaster each time. In Rhode Island it turned a state of three years' Democratic standing back into the. Republican ranks by a, 000 majority, and in St. I'tiul it made an historically Democratic city Republican by a majority of nearly 1,000. It is a matter of frequent remark that the Democratic party is following along behind the Republicans, endorsing all their platforms and policies While the federal government under Republican rule has been rapidly paying off a two billion dollar war debt, New York city under Democratic misrule in a time of peace has incurred an indebtedness of S0S,0O0,000. Some FuctH. From the Chicago Inter-Ocean. The figures given by .Mr. Carroll D. Wright, commissioner of labor, in bis seventh annual report, furnish food for thought to those who, if any such there be, are in danger of being deceived by the Democratic assertion of the "right of every man to put all the bread that he earns into his own mouth, without being taxed to favor his fellow citizens." These figures show that a' person who can earn SI .02 in one day in a cotton factory in the north can earn but 00i4 cents in the same time, on the same work, in a cotton fuctory in the south, and but OH cents jn a British factory. That is to say, where protection is a vital and all-pervading principle, as in the north, a person—in this case presumably a woman or a minor—has "the right" to "put into his own mouth" as much. bread, or its equivalent in other food, as SI.Oil will buy. Hut in the south, that boasts of its "cheap labor," and keepsitcheap by depriving it of votes and school and asks the northern farmers tu grow "cheap wheat" to feed it, a person can buy not quite seven-tenths as much food as tlte northern person en- guged in the same work. The northern policy is plenty, of free schools, plenty of free votes, and no free trade. The southern policy is absolute tree trade, few free schools; and no free votes. The yearly average earnings and food expenditure of families engaged in trades stand thus in England and America: Income. Food Cost. O la.w-workers, America.... $8B!) l~M U lass-workers, England.... 601 ~"-0 So that the American family of glass- workers have S505 to spend after their food bills have been paid, and they are better fed Hutu the English, while the English family has but 8281 left for clothes, rent, furniture, doctor's bills, and all other incidents to life. A like disparity exists between the incomes and food expenditures of all other classes of English and American wage-earners. This makes the Iowa Democratic demand for "untaxed food'' to be the climux of idiocy. American policy strives to furnish the wage- earner with ample means for the purchase of food and a large residue for othur purposes." HAD FAITH IN SIGNS. AS A CONSEQUENCE, BERTHA THOMAS WAS FOOLED ON APRIL 1. She Dcelricil to Tent Clilrogrftphy, find the U«nult Wan An AmuHlng Letter G'oneontod by Her Joke Loving Frlondn. Miss Bertha Thomas was a firm believer in "signs." She could not have told the meaning of the word fad, if asked, for sho had never heard that' word applied to what has always been called a hobby. And yet her fad was chirograph}'. Her acquaintances had gently ridiculed this weakness, but she was like adamant in hor beliefs. She had read so much of tho deciphering of character, the foretelling of tho future and the general knowledge to be gained from this art, that when she saw an acl- "WAS SOMETHING! IN IT." vertisement offering for the trifling sum of twenty-fivi cents to furnish a complete exposition of one's disposition merely by an examination of the writing, she joyously sat down to her dainty escritoire and fulfilled the only requirement desired by inditing a few lines of poetry, as a sample of the style of her ordinary "hand." But few women enjoy a secret unless it is confided to Eome one else. When her bosom friend, Miss Roso Harris, had been informed of her intentions, her happiness was enhanced by the strongly expressed opinion of that young woman that there "wits something in it." She, however, counseled delay, as & male relative of hers was a man of worldly wisdom, and sho desired to confer with him as to the advisability of sending such a coinmnnic ition. Miss Thomas, though feeling nervously anxious to have her future career outlined for her at the earliest moment, waB guided by the advice of her friend, and felt that she had not erred in judgment when Miss Harris called upon her two days later with tho joyful intelligence that, through the personal influence of Mr. Wilson a cheaper medium had been discovered, and that by applying to the address that was then handed to Miss Thomas, a reply would be received without tho expenditure of one cent. The delayed missive was then sealed and stamped and, opportunely, Miss Harris, who was on her way down town, would drop it in tho first letter box. There was silence for a few days—a time of harrowing suspense to Miss Thomas, but hor patienco was rewarded one morning by finding a letter, addressed in a bold masculine hand, at her breakfast plate. Hor appetite, always delicate, was immediately gone, and ex- ensing herself she hastened to the privacy of her room, Tearing open the envelope, site read tremulously the opening line, undated: DEAK MISS THOMAS—Your handwriting Indicates a strong antl * aggressive' character, especially about dinner time or after you have settled a milliner's bill.
