A Oonvmcin* Letter Prom One of Mrs. Pinkham's Admirer* No woman can look fresh and fair who is suffering from displacement of the womb. It is ridiculous to suppose that such a difficulty can be cured by THE tax payers will be thankful for a 20 cent reduction la the city tax levy, but it should have been more. THER is an enormous shortage in tie putato crop Many Indiana farmers will have to buy potatoes this year for winter use and for seeding in the spring. ONE Democratic member ot the <0 uQcll should have been placed on the electric light committee. He could have watched the working* or tbat money maker. LOKD SALISBURY has given his answer to the Doited States monetary commission and he refuses to permit Great, Britain to join in an international conference looking to the restoration of silver coinage. Germany would have agreed to a conference had England consented. The decision of Great Britain blocks the efforts of the American commission, OUR genial friend, Frank Porter, of Clinton township, did not receive the appointment of consul to London, Ontario, as successor to Billy Jacks. Why is It anyway that Cass county Bepublicans are getting no recognition from the administration? They worked industriously for Mark Hanna and "sound money," whatever that means. They captured the Italian vote at Kenneth and were then beaten only a little more than 450 in the county. Fairbanks has entirely overlooked Casu county, although its senator voted for him. Major Steele has treated Cass county Bepublicans as though there was no such a county In his district, Hanna has not inquired what Cass county Republicans want and continues to give the best places to Ohio men to help him out in the race for senator. There will be a day of retribution. IT is true that Billy Jacks, tbe only Logansport man who represents this country abroad in an official capacity, has been recalled home by the McKlnley administration and his place is to be taken by one of Mark Hanna's lieutenants in Ohio. Mr. Jacks has made an excellent representative of this country in London, Canada. His excellent conduct and well-known probity long since earned for him tbe reputation of a model cltisenot the great Republic. He will retire with honor to his own country and his associate sin Canada will regret his departure. The London Dally News, speaking of his removal, says: Col. Jacks has proved a most competent official and has made many friends since he came to me city. The Dally Advertiser says: Col Jacks came here from Indianapolis in July, 1893, and has always been an energetic and courteous officer.

Lydia 12. Piukham's Vegetable Compound is designed especially for this purpose, and. taken in connection with her Sanative Wash, applied locally, -will tone up the uterine system, strengthening tie cords or ligaments which hold up the womb. Any woman who suspects that she has this trouble —and she will know it by a dragging weight in the lower abdomen, irritability of the bladder and rectum, groat fatigue in walking, and leucorrhoea — should promptly commence the use of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. If the case is stubborn, write to Mrs. Pinkham, Lynn., Mass., stating freely all symptoms. You will receive a prompt letter of advice free of charge. All letters are read and answered by women only. The following letter relates to an unusually severe case of displacement of the womb, which was cured by the Pinkham remedies. Surely it is convincing: "LydiaE. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound and"l31ood Purifier cured me when the doctors had given me up.

MOSEY IS THE SUPREME POWES. of the electric light committee are correct, the earning capacity of that department is 110.000 in excess of expenditures, which sum should also be turned Into the general fund, making a total of $80.000 with which to meet a general fund expense of between «45,000 and $50 000, which should leave a net surplus of not less than $30,000. The taxpayers will appreciate the cut that has been made, and in view of the fact that city taxes have been exceedingly high for the past four years, a still greater cut would have been even more highly appreciated. The City Tax Levy. The period of special levies for city -purposes has passed by and taxpayers may congratulate themselves tbat it Is over. If the hopes of those who expect much from municipal ownership are realized the revenues derived trom the water works, the electric lipht plant and from liquor licenses should go far towards meeting the expenses of the city and tax levies should steadily fall as revenues from other sources increase. Tne Pharos has always contended that nothing speaks so well for a city as a low tax rate. Tbe levy fixed by the council last night is 20 cents less on the 1100 than the levy of last year. The reduction Is made by cutting off tbe electric light fund levy of 10 cents, the water works levy of S cents and by reducing the general fund 'levy 2 cents. The general fund levy is 2 cents lower than In 1896 and 2 cents higher than in 1S95. Tbe general fund levy of 77 cents on the $100 would seem to be more than ample to provide revenues to meet tbe general expenses of the city. Such a levy should provide something like $57,000, which, added to the amount received from liquor licenses makes tbe amount available for meeting the general expenses of tbe city as least 170,000. If the electric llgbt and water works departments are self-sustaining this sum should provide more than enougb to meet the other expenses of the city. The street department expenses should not exceed $15,000,the nre department 112,000, the police department not more than »9,000 and for city officers and other minor expenses p«h»P« »9,000, making a total ot »45,000, with $70,000 to pay them. II the claims A School Municipality. An experiment of rare interest was made during the past summer at one of the vacation schools in New York city. The aim of the experiment was to teach children their duties in respect to city government. The plan was the idea of Mr. Wilson L. Gill, president of the Patriotic league. The vacation school contained 22 classes. These -were divided into districts or wards similar to those of a city. The ordinary school government was suspended as far as possible, and the children were formed into a school city. A mayor and councilmen were elected, boys and girls alike voting. Health, street cleaning and police departments were created, with their respective heads. The aldermen met and passed some ordinances. One of the first was this: "The boy or girl who is not suitable in cleanliness the day he or she comes to school will be compelled to pick up all; paper wasted during the day." There ; -were several ordinances worded in sim- j ilar quaint language, all pertaining to the cleanliness, health and behavior of the pupils. One required the reporting of a child who came to school with a disease of any kind that the teacher did not know about. This last certainly saved the school from the danger of contagious diseases once or twice. ] The mayor vetoed the first batch of ordinances passed by the aldermen on the ground that they were migrarnmat- ical. Others followed duly which were grammatical, and these were accepted. They required the children to work for the cleanliness of the streets, picking up or causing to be picked up all bits of paper, banana skins or garbage and endeavoring likewise to prevent as far as possible all persons, young or old, from throwing paper, fruit skins and refuse in the streets. Often these enthusiastic these patriots worked among their fellow countrymen, silently, steadfastly, for a new revolution which should this time free Cuba forever from the tyrant's rule. They agitated, they appealed to all that lay nearest the hearts of men in their attempts to fan the slumbering spark of patriotism into flame. At length the hour, for outbreak came, Feb. 24, 1895. Spain only ended the one of 1SUS by treachery. Now the Cubans know her. She cannot deceive them again. They have maintained themselves against the whole power of the old country three years. They are better off now than they were when they began the fight. The hero Maceo laid down his life—again by the base treachery of a Spaniard—but others have takeu.his place, and the revolution goes on. England In Egypt. The international deal whereby France agreed to let England have her way in Egypt in consideration of bein^ let alone in Tunis will probably tun- out to be a good thing for both nations There is room in Africa for both o them and both are needed there. Meantime Great Britain was march ing steadily on southward up the Nil in'the Sudan before the deal was made She had captured and occupied the citj of the terrible Berbers, formerly s dreaded because of their incursion northward. The headquarters of the Mahdi's forces are now at Metemneh, about 100 miles south of Berber. Khar turn itself is the same distance above Berber, so that the British troops are within 200 miles of the Mahdi's city. Across to the northeastward of Berber longs to the Kitchener is within hailing distance of supplies and re-enforcements. So soon as the English get Khartum a railway will be built from that place to Suakin. Kitchener's,engineers who are building the railroad from Abu Earned across the great bend of the Nile have made the discovery that the so called desert which the lino will traverse is not a desert at all, but that wells may be sunk anywhere and sweet water obtained. They believe this points to an •underflow of the Nile itself across the bend. With the knowledge that water can be got anywhere in this desolate region, it will be transformed into a . fertile and blooming land. England has indeed a great career in Egypt and the Sudan. __ . i The rescue of the brave Cuban girl from cli6 RscojiQS-S agents of the New be set down as the ttii not U .11 likely .hat ,b. •*»*».•« ' , *-* . Monopolies Hare Grown Bold In Cor- rnpttnc legislatures — Their Stool Pigeons In Every Caucus and Convention. Brazen Parade of Absolutism and Wealth. "Government of the people, by the people and for the people" has not yet perished from the earth, but it is today engaged in a hand to hand struggle with government of the trusts, by the trusts and for the trusts. Conspiracies to increase the price of the necessaries of life, which are crimes at common law, boldly and almost universally with success contend for the control ol every department of the government in state and nation. The public demand for laws to restrain them was met by their own congressional agents a few years ago by the passage of John Sher man's antitrust bill, through which anj county court lawyer can drive a coach and four. .The managers of these trusts affect an air of dignity and exclutdveness. Their dense respectability, vouched foi by themselves and by their hirelings of be press, seems to place them above riticism. They never avow their plans. :heir policy is simple and their instrumentalities are the people they can dupe. They rule through political par- ies. The party on which they now bestow their patronage and from which hey draw their dividends is the Bepub-1 ican party. They put stool pigeons into every committee, caucus and conven- lon from the lowest to the highest, !rom the township committee to the na- ;ional committee, and from the town caucus to the national convention. These creatures of theirs are all brawling patriots. They sound whatever party cry will best disguise their purposes and summon the voters to the support of some great moral principle represented by the nominees who first pledge themselves to the trusts and corporations. Usually the chief operators keep out of sight and avail themselves of the services of scrub politicians who are ready to sell their services. But these powerful interests have grown bold, : and, counting upon their ability to manufacture public opinion in favor of themselves, they are favoring the public with exhibitions of then- own personal leadership. Not since the feast of Belsbazzar has there been a more brazen parade of absolutism and wealth than the revels in New York city last November of the trust managers and tbeir satellites over the triumph of money in the presidential election. The incarnation of all of last year « rottenness in politics was Marcus A. Hanna. He seemed to have been agreed upon as the generalissimo of all the forces that could be mustered into the service of the trusts. He could not himself be made president, but with money he could be made president maker and be the power behind the throne. The money lords of the country gave Mr. Hanna authority to spend their money at his own will and discretion. Every purchasable committeeman and election heeler was retained by Hanna at the very earliest stages of the Kepublican party movements of 1896. The national Republican convention was easily cap, tured by this new party chief. Gifted , neither by nature nor experience in the i arc of persuading men, he coarsely announced himself, through his newspaper organs, as the man who had the I money, and made his appeal to those- l-who, in the vernacular, "were out for ' the stuff." The "stuff" he gave them. ffhe nomination they gave aa he direct- led It The carnival of corruption which , followed resulted in intrenching the j trusts in the White House and in the 1 house of representatives. _ But the senate is slower to be reached. The framers of the constitution -wisely ordained that only one-third of that 1 body should go out every two years Tho trusts failed to get possession of the senate. Their labors this year are all directed toward tbat lasc citadel ot popular rights. Every member of that body has a voice and a vote. Not so is it with rho honse of representatives, which is led about m chains by an over- Beer called by courtesy the speaker, and which registers the will of those who control the speaker. The chains thus worn by the people's representatives are the rules adopted by themselves _at j the beginning of every congress 1 norance of tbeir effect, and, bein ' put on, the house is as powerless to act I otherwise than as directed by the speak ! er as is a mouse in a trap, j And so, after all, the struggle of ' 1896 was a drawn battle so far as the paramount issue was concerned.

The resctie seemed impossible, judged from the standpoint of human experience, yet it was accomplished. Being a political refugee, Miss Cisneros cannot be extradited in response to a demand by the Spanish government The only way in which a possible demand for her might be made by Spain would be the claim that she was imprisoned for conspiring against the life of the governor of the isle of Pines and would thus be classed as a common criminal.
