THB Government estimates of the wheat orbp are seldom correot Several weeks ago the announcement was made that the crop harvested a few months ago would be something In the neighborhood of bushels. It now appears that there is a deficit ot more than 40,000,000, Nearly every crop in this country is short except the cotton crop. ALL currency bills now being Introduced in Congress provide for bond Issues, except the one proposed by Senator Pugh, whlcli authorizes the issuanoe of of Treasury notes redeemable coin, Ic also provides for tha ooinage of the seigniorage and the Seposlt bf silver bullion from American mines.

Riley, who obtained judgment in Pulaski Circuit Court against the street railway system for $5,090 on the score ot personal injuries, will get his money. Mr. Riley has been after his money on the judgment for some time, but he was prevented from securing satis faction by reason of the court control exercised over the street rail way system through the medium of Receivers Fordyoe ani Johnson. Yesterday, however, an order was handed down in Circuit Court which will make Mr. Riley happy. The Court directs that the Riley judgment take its place as a lien on the funds now in the Receivers' hands and that it be a demand in priority to the claim of the mortgagesIn other words, a preferen tial claim. A compromise was agreed upon In the case of II. S. Hewen, who sued the street oar system for $3,000 on acoount of personal injuries. Hewen agreed to aocept $S03 In settlement of his olaim for damages, and the Court direoted the acceptance ot the offer by the receivers. A compromise was also effected In the similar suit of Sim W. Sherer; who is to be paid $250 as a satisfaction of his olaim for dam ages. Beeelver Applied For.

Mr. Davis will fill the position with credit to himself and to the satisfaction of Arkansas' Chief Executive. Mr. John J. Flinn, one of the brightest newspaper writers in Chicago, in a recent artiole in the Herald, brandol the entire negro raca as a worthless and dangerous class ot cltiz308. Mr. F.inn is a Republican, uni when Mr. Arthur was President of the United States, represented this country as Consul at Chemnitz. The Atlanta Constitution defends the negroes of Georgia against the attaoks of Mr. F.inn, contending that they aro advancing in intelligence, morality and wealth. "Among the Southern whites," says the Constitution, "there is no disposition to oppress or hamper the blaoks in their efforts to beooms an educated, enterprising and law-abiding class of home owners. On the contrary, our people cheerfully bear many financial burdens in order to aid the other race, and every member of that race is judged upon bis merits. If he is a good citizen the whites are his friends. If he is a bad citizen he will find that the way of the transgressor is hard." The new Mayor of New York has decided to try an experiment regarding tha 'opening of saloons on Sunday. He has advised the dramshop keepers to open their resorts at 2 o'olook on Sunday afternoons, but to close them prompt ly at 11 o'clock at night. Such a system prevails In Europe and appears to be satisfactory. Mayor Strong recognizes the influence ot the saloon vote in New York, and is willing to make any concession that will not be too offensive to those hostile to the liquor traffic, and which at the same time will make the saloonkeepers friendly to his administration. He very plainly demonstrated that he was not antagonistic to the dealers In liquor by his reply to the committee that waited on him to ask his permission that the saloons be als lowed to open on Sunday, To the Chairman ot that committee Mayor Strong said: "You are engaged in a business that is just as legitimate as any other, and you are entitled to protection under the law. You have it in your hands to help me In this in it tor. You are the best looking lot of men who have called on me since I hnve been here." Mayor Strong has captured the saloon vote of New York. HON. TH03. B. MARTIN. The first important official act of Gov. Clarke was the appointment of Hon. Thomas B. Martin as Chancellor of the First Chanoery Circuit. It will be generally approved, and the congratulations the Governor will receive on account of the selection will be as numerous as those that will be tendered the distinguished gentleman who received the appointment. There were several learned lawyers who stand at the head of the profession who were candidates for the position. None were any better qualified to don the judicial ermine than Col. Martin. Any gentleman In the list of applicants whose ttjt- pointment was suggested and urged by friends Is fully capable of presldingover any court in the State. Col. Martin is especially adaptoi to the performance of the duties of a Chancellor. His knowl -edge of law Is of wide range, ac quired by a natural. taste for study and long experience' in continuous and successful practice in all the courts. lie is quick to grasp ttf points in a legal proposition add oan make them clear in as faw words as any lawyer in, the State.

Ha is an advocate of economy in the administration of the affairs of govern ment and has made many suggestions to the Legislature in the ad vooacy ot such a policy. He is unwavering in his fidelity to Democracy, has a sincere regard for the rights of the people and is extremely loyal to his friends. A man possessing such excellent traits of character ought to make a good Governor of Arkansas. In his inaugural address he offers many suggestions which merit the approval of the General Assembly. His recommendation regarding the revision of the Constitution is one among the best, in fact the very best. It is the one thiag most needed at the present time. There are some provisions in the Constitution that could not be lm proved, and these would be allowed to remain as they are. As his Ex- oellenoy says. "Whilst I maintain that It would be greatly to the in terest of the State to revise the Constitution, I must not be under stood as insisting that it is bad in all its puts. On the contrary I assert it as, my deliberate judg ment that any Constitution whioh does not contain many of the pro visions of the present instrument will never meet the approva 1 of the people of the State." The opinion prevails among some that a new Constitution means higher taxation. On the contrary it means the equalization, of taxation, which is plainly set; forth by" tHe newly inaugurated Governor. The election of Stats and County officers for terms of four years, the same to be Ineligible for election to a second term, quadrennial meetings of the Gen eral Assembly, with a short session of thirty days intervening for the purpose of making appropriations and investigating the accounts and aff airs of State officers, Is also recommended. The Gov ernor makes many suggestions 1 regard to the better enforcement of the law, and frequently mentions wherein many of his suggestions oannot be adopted unless changes are made in our Constitution. Gov. Clarke believes that the time has arrived when some provision should be made for the payment of the cur rent Interest on the undisputed pari: of the State debt. He recomn mends that the debt be refunded, and Is of the opinion that the interest could then be paid without any additional tax levy. The inaugural address of Clarke Is full of moat. It is a lucid explanation of the exact situation of affairs in Arkansas, It points to the errors in the organic and statutory laws gtthe State and suggests tho rem edy la eaoh ease.
