"Government by injunction" was first invented in the federal courts in this country in order to suppress labor strikes and terrify the working population from demanding increase of wages, diminution of hours of labor and similar regulations for Us benefit and advantage. It was seldom or never resorted to by state courts, the reason, as it is generally believed, being that tba judges of the latter are mostly elected by "popular vote for terms of office, while the federal judges are appointed by the president of the United States aiid hold their places for life, irresponsible to r.he people. From labor troubles the. next step was not a long one to take to interfere in ofliceholcfmg troubles. It was taken when, lately, a federal court issued an injunction forbidding the renewal of two officeholders of the internal revenue, and it was followed up by another construction of law by which was maintained the right of a head of department to change a civil service employee from a high salary to a small one. although he was supposedly protected in his first place by bis appointment after competitive examination. In this last case the court aud the department den Ic a pretty nigh fatal blow at the supposed immunity of the civil service anpointees. As we are doing on in this experience of injunctions it is evident that, we shall soon reach a point where we will have nothing 'to do but to obey them. As every statute passed by tbe elected representatives of tbe people is subject to "construction" by the life tenure judges of the federal courts, as injunctions are issued upon ex parte affidavits and applications, and as contempts are adjudged without indictment or trial, wa arc all marching forward to a condition of things which leads—whither? —New York News. ==PATENTS« American and.

If one kind of metallic money has been made unsound by legislation, can it not be rfstored to soundness oy the same power that destroyed It? What did William KcKinley mean when he said in a speech delivered at Toledo in 1895 that President Cleveland had made gold master and all things its servants? What did G. Carlisle mean when said in a speech delivered in congress a few years ago, that the con- ipiracy formed to destroy one half the metallic money of the world would entail more misery upon the human race than all the wars, pestilences and famines of the past? Is it possible that the gold standard of sound money must, be maintained at such a cost? There is scarcely a Republican of any great prominence who has not within the past twenty years deprecated *he establishment or gold monometallism. Now many of theie men turn around and insist that gold is the only kind of sound money, and seek to make all government ooligations payable in that metal. According to the present interpretation of "sound money," gold alone Is the metal of final payment. Will the Republican party, carrying out that interpretation, change the condition of the bonded indebtedness of the country?

High Tsrtfflj FInrich a Few at the Expanse of the People. Prices of the necessaries of life have all gone op. The rise in the price of flour is due to the famine abroad, but it should not be forgotten that if the famine were in this country the people would have to pay a heavy tax on tbe imports of food suiffs. In other cases the rise is due to protective tariffs. Higher prices in foods are matched by higher prices in shoes, clothing and household goods. The poor will suffer. While the Dingley law is now bur-' dening the people and is putting millions of their bard earned dollars in the coffers of trusts and combines it is putting little money in the treasury. Imports have fallen off. The increased prices the people pay are not paid in taxes to the government, but in tribute to the favorites of the government. Instead of promising prosperity high tariffs blight it. They enrich a few plutocrats at the expense of the people and with a loss to the revenues.—-St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Killed Vfite.

Nobody Is holding you." "But," says the protectionist, "I cannot afford to do so. I cannot compete with the foreigners. They make the goods cheaper than I can on account of our high-priced labor. You must tax yourself by allowing me to sell my goods at a higher price. Then I can afford to pay the men American wages, and still make a profit on my goods." "But why," asks the citiien, "should we take men out of their present high-priced employment, and put them In an employment which you admit la not remunerative to them or to you, unleiiS I make up the difference by ttxlng'myself?"

For one thing, safety devices will be sure to be invented, lessening the danger of the machine. That there is something of danger in riding a bicycle, even apart from that of collisions, must be admitted. The wheel of the early years of the twentieth century will be a different one from ours and a much improved one. That the bicycle will continue to be used none can doubt Until flying machines for everybody come into use the bicycle will remain among us welcome and blessed. Already there are or are immediately to be placed on the market bicycles presenting considerable modifications from the type of 1897. The chief change •will be to the chainless wheel A dozen manufacturers are preparing models of this pattern for next year. The chain . is done away with by means of a bev-, eled gear. "In place of the chain," : Bays The Scientific American, we shall have a shaft, two bevel wheels and two sets of ball bearings to trans- j rnit the motion from crank axle to rear wheel " The Scientific American is not sure that the bevel gear has wholly demonstrated its superiority to the chain. The chainless wheel looks better and can be kept clean more easily, •which are certainly great advantages. Another point in favor of the chainless machine is that the parts of the bevel gear are made with much more care and with nicer adjustment than those of the The most perplexing difficulty following the death of George M. Pullman will be the disposal or distribution of the $25,000,000 surplus which his palace car company was able to heap up even in the midst of as hard times as this country ever knew. This fact stands to show the enormous profit made by the Pullman company. Thousands of the worthiest, cleanest and most refined people in this land, who could pay a moderate price for sleeping cars and comfortable day coaches, must travel with the unpleasant herd in order to make a $25,000,000 profit for a company that is puzzled what to do with it. In our humble way we would like to bo permitted to venrare a suggestion. It is that the Pullman Car company use a part of its f25,000,000 surplus to raise the wage of its colored porters to public from their direct support. Then let some more of the *25,000,000 surplus be used to pay for printing some notices to be urcked in each car stating that the company does not permit its porters to receive .fees. Finally let this painful and troublesome surplus be kept down by fixing rates for the palace and sleeping cars at such price that those ' nice common people whom Lincoln said the Lord showed bis regard for by making so many of them can avail selves of said car service. flsK nour deals! lor Cuftaiyjla Sole Distrttraters Long Havana Filler, Select Sumatra Wrapper, ONLY 5 CEKTS .
