Hear those Rapnblioana saying that "the only way to avoid tariff disturbances by legislation is to return us to power." Great soott, they would give it stability, no doubt, for they only revised and tinkered the tariff twenty-one times in thirty venrs. A campaign forth* restoration of MoKinleyism would be n genuine guarantee ot rest from tariff legislation indeed. ___ Cleveland spent the greater part ot the week at Buzzard's Bay where he took tbe tariff bill with him to study in detail.

Tbe Herald intimates tbat tbe straggle for places on the ticket is likely to prove spirited. There] will no doubt be much better opportunities for political aspirants winning in the convention than there will be at the polls. Boys, get sll the tun out of tbe convention youjcan for it will be tough sledding from tbat on. In the bright lexioan of youth there is no snob word as fail. Billy Mohr, ot Arcadia, has announced himself as a willing sacrifice for the third trial at the clerkship. Funk and Kennebeok were too speedy for his popularity, and it be fails this time it will be three strikes and out. The Democratic party is hard to catch napping, and if Billey is not "fanned out" this time we are no judge. LORD HAWKE. " P8W athletes in England are better known or held in greater esteem than Lord Hawke. who came to this country in 1891 and who will in September be m Philadelphia. He fe one of the best oncket players olive, of magmfieent physique, and u 32 years old. He Vegan his career at Eton. _ SJoux Oity is getting lots of free advertising for having made the offer to put ap a purse for the Jackson-Oorbett mill. The war between Obina and Japan grows more formidable every day end The defeated spirit of Judge Paine like anamnesis haunts the, troubled soal of Bro. Hungertord. Week after week we hear his pitious waitings like the last cry ot a lost eonl. The part ha took in working the defeat of Jndge Paine must have been far more rotten than we at first supposed. Paine doea not belong to the boodle wring ot the Republican party and Hungerford lent his iufiueuce to bis defeat. The Rapublioao state convention held grown so strong and agressive that they even now, as in former rears, enter the balls of congress and dictate the laws to be enacted in their favor. Cleveland and the great mass of the Democrats remained loyal to the trnet reposed in them by the people, bat a handfull of traitors allied themselves with a solid Republican phalanx, and in a measure defeated the will of the people. We are fiee to admit that the present bill as passed by the senate and [forced upon the bouse by- every Republican in the senate and a few Democratic traitors, is not what we wanted,bnt it was the beet we could get. It reqtures earnest,persiai - ent work to route these] plutocrats and millionaires from their stronghold, bat the work will go on. The Centering wedge has been driven, and if the Republicans have learned that legislation which looaliz a outlaws, whioajehoulcl be national, and fosters trust and corporations is "infamous," the Democrats may feel gratef ul.for the dawn of coming hope is in sight. Then let us be more zealous tor the cause of the people thau ever before. The blackened clouds are rifted, and through them we see the oonsuma- tion ot the great work the Democratic party began in the interest of the masses against the olaisaa. DJ not be discouraged because a few traitors'^betrayed their trust, for when Christ was on earth be bad bis Judas, but tbe world never accepted the teachings ot those who out his filth on Kennebeok, blackened bis character, and now thinks that Kenue- beok's friends will play into his bands and assist in carrying out tbe program by todying to this delusion and assist in electing a Republican clerk. It requires an abundance ot gall to presume so lightly upon the intelligence of any class ot voters. But when the Republicans come to trade votes to beat Scbroeder, they will nod that the ooosooaation ot the attack the Herald made on Kennebeok,* last spring,will not be realized, and will learn tbat tbe Democrats are not trading off their right ot f ranohibe to satisfy those who committed 'that outrage agaiqst him. Not a Vtee Conn try. Ail incident occurred in the tTnited States senate lately which willfurnish a text £ot years to come to the finicky subjects of European kingdoms. It was an awfully hot day, and the United States senate chamber was -one of the hottest places iii the country. A senator gently slid his No. 10's off his feet. They felt bad. The .blood settled in them, and they swelled, and his corns ached. To get the blood awuy from his feet, perhaps also to get it into his brains, where it was avidently needed, the senator lifted his stockinged feet, with the bunions in relief, upon the top of his rosewood desk, in plain sight of all the folk. Foreign diplomats and fashionable ladies gazed wonderingly at the senatorial extremities. Worst of all, a membei near the shoeless senator was speaking. The elevated feet were not very fat away from the talking senator's face. Sensation in tbe galleries. But jiurt as the senator whose bunions ached began to be comfortable a page came to him with a message. He took It, read it, then softly, sadly and unbe- knownstlMcd slid his pedals down from where they were on exhibition. He pushed them into his shoes crestfallen. Call this a free country when a senatot cannot sit with his shoes off and his feet on top of his desk! If he had been without hose, now, like Bookless Jerry! But he was not. He bad socks on, and even then he was not permitted to be hall way comfortable. Some people are just too fussy for anything. On the Free List. Balow are given a few of the more important articles whioh were saved from the wreck ot the Wilson bill and which will be placed on tbe tree list: Binding- twine. Sulphate of copper. Copper ore and bars. Oopperage. Cotton ties, Fresh fleh. Hatters' fur and pitch. Flax, tow, hemp. Cod oil. The Lazy Unemployed. If you have sympathy to spare, don't waste too much of it on the unemployed this summer. A big ablebodied tramp asked a newspaper man not long ago f or something to buy food with. The newspaper man happened to know of a good place lying loose waiting for a man willing to work. He asked the tram, in return, "Do you want a good job?" The tramp inquired, "What is it?" "In the country on a farm," replied the newspaper man. The tramp sneeringly said. "Not much. What do yon take me for?" TlieiXm, he had asked for money-had taken him for another man out of employment and willing to work at the first thing that offered a living, as he himseli would have been. But lie was mistaken. An ttttefitfttiottal Currency. Mfc franklin B. Head, secretary of the Chicago Bimetallic league, is sure that the way out of tho money troubles of civilized countries at present is fof theto to establish a gold and silver international currency. Perhaps Mr. Head is right, but how is he going to do it? Tho United States would be only too willing, but how shall We bring England, the world's great creditor nation, to otir point of view? Mr. Head puts forth in connection with his discussion of the silver question iu The Foruni an idea that will be new to most of hia readers. It is nothing less than that the fall of the Roman empire was duo to the contraction ol her currency. The principal supplies ol gold and silver came iu Roman daya from Greece and Spain. Their mines became exhausted, and ruin overtook the Roman empire. Her prosperity was greatest when her currency was largest With the giving out of the mines the currency contracted and continued to do so till it was only one-eighth its former volume, Rome was beggared. The imperial city became infested with hordes of tramps. The people lost public spirit and patriotism. "It was not the lack oi bravery in the depleted legions, but tha lack of means efficient to maintain them, whioh led to the extinguishment of Roman civilization." Public and private morality had been just as corrupt 400 years before as it was when Rome finally fell. It was not either till Columbus discovered the western world, with its vast goldmines, that civilization took a fresli start and went on again, says Mr. Head. He writes: "The wise and permanent settlement of she silver question is today by fax the most momentous problem which confronts the statesmanship of the civilized world. Upon it hinges possibly oven the fate of civilization itself. I firmly believe that the only lasting adjustment of the currency of the world must be based on an agreement between all the great commercial and therefore civilized nations for the free, coinage, upon fome agreed ratio, of both gold and silver. As matters now are, no single nation can safely act upon this theory, from' tho certainty of drifting Japan shows Mongolians. its superiority over tbe Congressman Rryau will open the campaign for Gen. Weaver at Atlantic on Saturday afternoon. The people ot tbe •uiotb district will give him a rousing reception. Over £15,01)0,000 iu duties have been paid into tbe government treasury during this week, and there will be another large sum realized next week it tbe bill is not vetoed. tariff Lillian Cody, Buffalo Bill's best riHe and revolver shot, will be at tbe state fair, which opens Aug. 31. ..This is tbe lady who did tbe daring act at tbe World's fair Wild West Show. in Omaha Wednesday was far from being a love feast. Majors was nominated for governor. Editor Rosewater, of tbe Omaha Bee,bad notified the Republicans tbat it MBjora WAS nominated, he would not support him. Tbe Republicans thought it only a binff, though as soon as be was nominated, Rosnwater sent bis resignations aa national committeeman and declared tbat this year be was independent and asked to be released, tor he wanted to be a free mail. Serious charges have been made against Majors, and as they bava never been denied, the general supposition is tbat they are true The Republican party ia in bad shape across tbe river and will undoubtedly not out much ot a figure in tbe tall campaign. While tbe president baa not in any way given any indication as to what be will do with tbe bill, it is quite generally believed tbat he will not veto it, and it will become a law either with or without bis signature. Tbe sugar trust thinks tbat by getting control ot a tew senators ia both parties tbat they have control ot the whole country, but the day will soon come It Will Triumph. It makes one weary to bear • Repub- it will find that this country is still a bigger thing thau the Republican sugar trust, Tbe atate fair esbibit this year will be a surprise to many paople who Lave an idea tbat "the dry weatber has Killed everything."

Tbe only logical conclusion to be derived from tbe assault made upon tbe bill by tbe Republicans, ia tbat tbe great fight made by tbe Democrats for tba repeal ot obnoxious class legislation baa convinced even tbe Republican* tbat tbe Demo- orate are right in tbeir demands (or a complete repeal of tbe MoKiuley law, wbiob ia protection ran mad.

So in this struggle of the people against their oppressors, as it has been in all ages, tbe work will go on, but inob, bv inch they will contest every foot of vantage until the cause of right has triumphed, "That Deadly Parallel." The Herald is making a grandstand play to have its party trade off votes Jon tbe judgesnip for votes for county clerk. It says that "Jndge Paine had bat, one term and Clerk Kennebeck but one. If tbe action ot the judicial convention calls for resentment, then should resentment be meted out to tbe clerk. Tbe ciiaee are similar, and when Tnu SENTINEL gives a reason why Church, tbe judicial candidate, should be 'scratched,' its logic necessitates tbe 'scratching' of Source- der. Knot, why not?" So this is tbe Herald's proposition, "it tbe Democrat* will 'scratch' Sobroeder, tbe Republicans will 'scratch' Obnrab.'VjWe know not what others tbiuk otytbis kind of a proposiiion.but tor us we want none ot it Petroleum, crude and refined. Nickel ores. Paintings. Drawing, sketches. Nursery stock. , Farming Implements. Cotton gins. Salt. Ivory unmanufactured. Burr stones. Epsoin aud mineral Timber mid lumber, salts. Wool. These were all taxed by tbe McKinley law and brought in a revenue of $62,000,000, which was taken from tbe people and paid into tbe treasury. This is by no tnetiaa tbe total amount the people were aompelled to pay for reason of the tax, for all ot these ai Holes whiob were produced in this country had tbe amount ot tbe duty added to tbe selling price Tha only article on whioh a tax was placed that tnkfs money from tbe pockets of the consumer was the unjust duty on Bugar. This will probably amount to $30,000,000 per year, but under tbe McKinley law a bounty woe paid to producers, whiob bas beon abolished aud will reduce the iooreased^burdea ot taxation 01 sugar to 815,000,000. Tbe difference between $15,000,000 and $62,000,000 is the amount otmxiey cunt will bs saved to the people on these articles by tbe passage ot tbe senate bill. Thu theory tbe Republicans tiied to put down tbe peoples' throats, that tbe foreigner paye tbe tax, baa been exploded. The big ablebodied man did not want work at all. From many parts ot the country this summer comes the same report. Farm labor cannot be had at any price. The slouching, shambling vagabonds who constitute so large a proportion of the "unemployed", will not take work in the country. Many of them will not take work of any kind. They prefer to rob cornfields and henroosts and appeal to the maudlin sympathies of the sentimental. The farmers are the ones who furnish all the world with food. The uneinpjpyed man who asks their food without'being willing to do the kind oi work they do the year round ought to starve. It is a crime against society not to let them starve. WUN tor Ibouck.

How the government manages to ip people in hard times is therefore of interest. Existence has been grievous on Swiss agriculturists for tho last yeai owing to drought and shortage of crops. The hay crop was particularly deficient, BO much BO that the article had to be imported from the United States. It was let in free of duty to' feed the starving Swiss live stock. To facilitate matters the government took uppn itself tho part of distributing agent. The local authorities in the dif< ferent cantons attended to the distribution. Out of the public funds they bought the bales of bay and sold them at cost to the farmers. The government bad nothing to gain or lose by the transaction except that it gained a large share ot good will from tbe grateful farmer. The Swiss idea ia that a government should help its citizens in hard times. In many ot the cities during tbe post winter public appropriations were made to provide work for the unemployed.

The repeal of the silver purchase law at the present session of congress was wise and absolutely necessary to guard against a depreciated currency. If any one of the great commercial nations should alone open its mints for the free coinage of silver, the international'balances would be paid to that nation in silver, while the other nations would refuse to take it back when the balances were reversed. Silver can be restored to its proper money positions only by the concurrent action of Europe and America—in other words, by international bimetallism. "The present depression in all branches of trade throughout the world and tho enforced idleness of millions of workmen are attributable in part to other causes, but far more to the de- monetization of silver than to all Qthei causes combined. There ia a worldwide feeling of impending disaster, a conviction broad and deep that causes at work are more deep rooted and serious than the ordinary fluctuations of trade. The conviction, too, is becoming general that the root of the evil is tho increasing scarcity of gold iu proportion to. tho wants of commerce, and tho change in tho relative value of gold and silver, in consequence solely of tho mistaken legislation of tbo last 30 years." A dangerous power seems to be vested in tho president of tbo United States. It is considered in the departments that be has the right to withdraw at his discretion any lauds that congress has set aside as a forest reservation and turn it over to tbe public domain as agricultural soil. Tims even Yellowstone pork itself might be sacrificed if a president should bo elected who bad no soul for tho sublime and beautiful iu nature.
