N. Crawford Instructions to Voter*. There are two tickets. The State and National candidates are on one and the County on tho other. Stamp both, tickets. To rote a straight ticket stamp anywhere in the square surrounding the eaglo at the head of each ticket. To vote a mixed ticket stamp the square at tho left of each candidate you wish to vote for nnd do not statap in the square at the head of the ticket. If you are a democrat but want the republicau county ticket elected, stamp your rooster on the National State ticket aad the eagle on the county ticket. Ix estimating your expenses 'or next year remember that your county taxes will be doubled and your total taxes {rreatly increased. The new tax law is to blame. ONE million Canadians came to this country to live in 1891 according- to the official records. But for this immigration the sentiment in Canada in favor of annexation to the United States would sooa be overwhelming. THE evening hoodwinker has not yet explained how the supremo court and Justice Miller, being good and true men -worthy to be quoted and being Republicans as the Pharos says. caa be Republicans if their decision in the Topeka case which the Pharos quotes has any possible bearing on or reference to the tariff. It is a favorite trick of the . evening hood winker to decry an acknowledged evil arising out of disease, misfortune or something else foreign to political discussion in order that its readers may infer that the evil is the result of the Republican policy. In reference to the decision quoted the same court has unanimously held the tariff law constitutional and the decision quoted is on entirely another subject.- OCR cartoon this morning represents General Sicklee, the hero of Gettys- burgh, a life long Democrat in his famous utterance "No! No soldier can vote for Cleveland." General Sickles has taken' an open stand for Harrison in this campaign and his influence will be felt in the country. THE new tax law does not increase local taxes. In no county in Indiana does the new tax law increase local taxes.— Pharos. These are samples of the Pharos dodging. The new tax law is a State law. Local levies are fixed by County Commissioners. no reason why the United States, with all its wealth of climate and natural resources, should not maintain the elevated position it occupies by a policy of protection against less favored and less prosperous nations. We cannot pay higher wages and compete with cheap and pauper labor nations. THE last legislature was petitioned by the farmers. They wanted a fee and salary bill. They did not get one operative up to date. Will the Democratic farmers indorse this disposal of their petition? They will in part. The suckers will all vote to indorse it. Xlie Increase of Taxes. Taxes next year will be heavier all over the State than they were this year. The valuation is increased §21,481,335, and as ihe State levy for general and special purposes will be the same as last year.viz., 35 cents on the hundred dollars, taxes will ^ be increased just in the proportion that the valuation, is. In other words, there will be an increase of 35 cents on the hundred dollars of §51.481,335, which will be £75,185.67. The increase of valuation in Marion county is $9,579,326, and the increase of the tax for State purposes will be §33,527.64. Taxes for local purposes will ba higher in many counties next year than they wore this year, especially in those counties where Democratic commissioners reduced the levy this year for political effect. Most or the counties where such reduction was made will either have to borrow money to meet current expenses—a favorite Democratic plan—or they will have to increase the levy next year to make up the deficit, in either case local taxes will be heavier. From present indications the aggregate amount of taxes to be paid by the people next year will be considerably larger than this year. Democracy is a tax. —Indianapolis Journal. Tlie Gerrymander. Substantial equality of representation lies at the very basis of our institutions. The principle is openly, flagrantly and defiantly violated by every gerrymander by whichever parly perpetrated. All patriotic citizens are opposed to its perpetuation in the armory of political warfare. The fundamental idea of our system is that the majority shall rule. The gerrymander is a device of the evil o=e, adopted either to give the majority more power than belongs to it, or to'place the Legislature of a commonwealth in the hands of a minority. It is a hopeful sign that people in many States are crying out against unfair apportionments, and are demanding that the legislature shall obey the constitution by providing for substantial equality of representation.—Indianapolis News.

The Life and Services of a Distinguished Soldier. His Record in tho Civil War—How Ho Sabdnod the Indians of Minnesota —His Part in tho Fitz John Porter Case. Gen. John Pope, who died September 23, was a son of Hon. Nathaniel Pope, a •distinguished jurist, who served in the Fourteenth congress and was appointed to United States judgeship in ilSIS and died in St. Louis in 1850. General Pope was born in Louisville, Ky., March 1C, 1S22. He graduated from the United States Military academy in 1S42 and was made brevet second lieutenant of engineers. He served in Florida in 1842-4 and assisted in the survey of the northeast boundary line between the United States and the British provinces.. He was made second lieutenant May 0,1S4G, and took part in the Mexican war, being brevetted first lieutenant for gallantry at Monterey and captain for his services in the battle of Buena Vista. In 1849 he conducted the Minnesota exploring- expedition which demonstrated the practicability of the navigation of the lied river of the north by steamers and in 1S51-3 he was engaged in topographical engineering service in JTew Mexico. In the political campaign of I860 Capt. Pope sympathized with the republicans, and in an address on the subject of "Fortifications," read before a literary society in Cincinnati, ha criticised the policy of President Buchanan in unsparing terms. For this he was courtmartialed, but, upon the recommendation of Postmaster General Joseph Holt further proceedings were dropped. He was still a captain of engineers when Sumter was fired upon, and he was one of the officers detailed by the war department to escort Abraham Lincoln to Washington. He was HAJ. JOtDT POPE. made brigadier general of .volunteers May IT, 1801, and placed in command first in the district of northern and afterwards southwestern and central Missouri. Gen. Pope : s operations in the state, in protecting railway communication and driving out guerrillas were highly successful His most important engagement was that of Blackwater, December IS, 1SG1, where te captured 1,300 prisoners, 1.000 stand of arms, 1,000 horses, 05 wagons, two tons of gunpowder and a large quantity of tents, baggage and supplies.- iThis victory forced Gen. Sterling'Price to retreat below the Osage. river, which he never again crossed. He was nest In- trusted by Gen. Henry "SV. Halleck with the command of the land forces that co-'. operated with Admiral Andrew H- Foot's flotilla in the expedition against STew" Madrid andlsland 2fo. 10. He succeeded in occupying the former place March 14,1S62, while the latter surrendered on- April 8, the same year, when 6,500 prisoners, 123 cannons and 7.000 small arms fell into Ms hands. He was rewarded for the capture of New Madrid by a commission as major general of volunteers. As commander .of the army of the Mississippi he advanced from Pittsburgh, landing upon' Corinth,, the operations against the —One of the features of the California exhibit at the exposition will be a pampas palace, twenty feet square, which, •orill be erected in the state building. The palace is the contribution of Mrs. Harriet "W. K.

S. D. The business men of the town have boycotted the Northern Pacific railroad because the company won't build a nc%v station and hotel there. They have issxied a circular to all their business connections asking- them, to ship their goods over other lines. —At a public sale in the armory, Westchester, Pa., on August 4, of the effects of a deceased old lady, the auctioneer held up an old collar box and said: "Here is a pint of human teeth. What is bid for them'?" The teeth were mementoes, gathered from the mouths of scores of the old lady's relatives. They sold for one cent. —A man at Peak's Island, Me., dropped a nickel into the slot of a phonograph one day last week, but the machine failed to give out the promised music. Thereupon the man became enru --. d, for nickels are highly esteemed in the outlying neighborhoods of Portland, and smashed the deceitful phonograph into bits to recover his money. —The largest sample of goldsquartz ever mined in Montana was taken out of the Mclntyre lode. Its weight is 1,785 pounds. It came from near the surface. There are other large samples, whicH came from the Shafer shaft at the depth of 110 feet; one from the Musser shaft, 100 feet, and another from the working shaft, 200 feet. All are destined for exhibition at the world's fair at Chicago. —The voung and the old are smart in the Pine'Tree state. Ida Gibbs, the ten- vear-old daughter of John Gibbs, of Brooks, Me., has driven ahorse rake all over one hundred acres of hay fields this summer, raking the hay up clean, and has taken care of the horses besides. The town of Cooper, Me., boasts of a lady of seventy-three who rakes up after a mowing machine as well as any of the men, —ALondonpaper, mentioning a recent anarchist meeting, says that speeches were delivered in Yddish. This is a term employed to designate the queer mixture of Hebrew, German and other words that is called jargon in New York. Jargon is so extensively spoken and read that it is profitable to issue several newspapers in that language. The expression "our esteemed jargon contemporary" is found occasionally in the Jewish papers of the higher class, and its use does not imply any disposition to speak slightingly. —The streets and public grounds of Washington are shaded by over seventy thousand trees, including eight nun- dred varieties and species, some of which are to be found nowhere else in America. These trees have been planted by many industrious men, from the first president to the present one. There are in the city 331 'large and small reservations, the latter being formed by the intersection of the avenues, which radiate from the capitol and white house, with the regular streets. In all. these cover an aggregate of 900 acres, all of which are covered with trees, the care of which, with the nurseries and propagating gardens, costs 875,000 annually. - t^,.„£.-£. ~~—, ; •—A New Yorker taking a, Sunday perennial amusement There were none u nofc fap b d tlle city limits till the shah returned_f rom Europe ,wo ^ snrpriscd at the conduct o f two- score of sparrows that fluttered in the air a foot or so above a bare rock in the midst of an empty pasture.

After its evacuation he pursued the enemy to Baldwin, Lee county, Miss. At the end of June he was summoned to Washington and assigned to the command of the army of Virginia, composed of Fremont's (afterwards Sigel's), Banks' and McDowell's corps. On July 14 he was commissioned brigadier general in the regular army. On August 0 a division of his army under Gen. Nathaniel P. Banks had a severe engagement with the confederates commanded by Gen. Thomas J. Jackson at Cedar Mountain. For the next fifteen days Gen.

Pope then withdrew his forces behind Difficult creek, between Flint hill and the Warrenton turnpike, whence he fell back within the fortifications of Washington and on September 3 was, at his own request, relieved of the command of the army of Virginia and was assigned to that of the department of • the northwest, where in a short time he completely checked the outrages of the Minnesota Indians. He retained this command .until January 30, 186G,when he was given charge of the military division of the Missouri, including all the northwestern states and territories. From this he was relieved January 0, 1SCC.

In Washington, in December, 1S02, he testified before a courtmartial called for the trial of Gen. Fitz John Porter, who had been accused by him of misconduct before the enemy at the second battle of Manassas or Bull Run. Gen. Pope was brevettcd major general March 13, 18C5, "for gallant and meritorious service" in the capture of Island No. 10 and advanced to the full rank October 2C. 1SS3. -.

While in Paris he saw the cabmen with newspapers in their hands when idle and naturally, it is said, attributed their general intelligence to ! this fact As soqa as he arrived in Teheran he established a ministry of the press and called upon the nobles to aid him in his plans. As a result there are twelve journals in Persia to-day. Among them is the official organ Iran.
