He reoommeude tbe placing ot coal and iron on tbe free list. Stephen B. Elkins haB made over B million dollars ont of politioa aud is now goinfr to tbe U. 8. senate to see it be cannot find "various cbaonels in which be can be useful." i ^^__________—»» The president's idea of « revision of one financial system will meet with strong opposition in hia own party and the prospects tor legislation along this line •re not very flattering for Mr. Cleveland's theory. i H. O. Havermeyer receives $76,000 salary' as president uf the sugar trust and $25,000 a year as trustee. This munificent salary will no doubt go on whether the laborers are turned in tbe street on the threshold of winter or not. The plate glass trust met at Pittabnrg Wednesday and is now going to put the price of wages down and raise tbe price of glass. Tbe anti-trust law does not appear to materially interfer 'with these institutions that it was intended to control. When Uncle 9«n sent the battle ebip Columbia to Blneflelds, Nicaragua, John Ball began to pull in his boms. Secretary Qreebam demanded a full explanation by tbe British government. Backed np by the show of each battle •bip as the Columbia tbe explanation was forthcoming. There are two distinct schools ot finance in this country', one adhere* to tbe belief that tbe government should nave absolute control of oar finance, and > tbe other to a complete divorcement ot tbe state from our banking system. They would be in favor of placing it in tli* bands ot the individuals and treeing tbe government from all responsibility. We will inform the Bbelby County Republican that we have no election ooBteete ini this county. As it is one of the few Democratic counties in tbe state, tbe oitieem are law abiding and there is DO cause for election contest* as there are in Republican counties like Shelby. Before yon talk about Democratic corruption you would do well to look at home, Mr, Republican. Have you beard anything about the oonntry demanding the repeal of tbe tariff on sugar, by tbe Republicans since election day? Congress is DOW in aeaaion and those calamity bowler* should demonstrate to the people that they were in earnest last fall and do •omethifigto relieve tbe people ot tbe burdens placed upon them by nnwise , legislation. » Down in Shelby county the Republican ticket bad 102 plurality over the Democratic ticket: but every candidate on tbe Democratic ticket was declared elected by the oanviujsiig board. Tbe • auditor by 3 plurality, tbe recorder by 6, tbe county attorney by 6 and ibe Clerk; by 118. One supervisor by 12 and tbe other by 109. Contests have been made by every Republican with the exception of the one that was defeated by 118 and tbe other by 100 plurality.** It id bard for a Republican to take defeat and if it is possible for them to steal tbe otope they will cave no no hesitancy in 4oiugso. have the metallic ring of the words ot n great statesman who bed the cimrnge < tin honest conviction. His recommendations regarding finance were not what were anticipated of him. He enys nothing regarding silver legislation, nnd it is to be taken for granted that be docs tot think any is needed. Hie theory ot establishing banks ot issue is new and .vitried, nnd the legislators will be rlo^v to lend much encouragement to tbe scheme, notwithstanding it has tbe unqualified endorsement of tbe president and Secretary Carlisle. Hie review of the various departments of tbe govern went »a vory exhaustive and shows evidences of a thorough knowledge of the workings of the government in nil its branches. On tbe question oF rt,t,.! iatory legislation with Germany for plea- ing nn embargo on American meats, he takes tbe position that the way to induce Germany to receive our meats, is to remove tbe cause that induced that government to place an embargo on them. lu this he differs with Secretary Morton, who thinks that instead of repealing tbe excess duties on imported refined eager from countries snob BB Germany, that pay an' export bounty on sugar, that retaliatory legislation should be enacted against Germany • with the intention ot forcing her to raise the embargo. OL the whole the message is conservative and it the advice of President Cleveland is followed the work of the short session will mark an eventful era in the reforms the Democratic party was placed in power to enact into laws. A Failure.' Harlan Tribune. The Ericsson, tbe torpedo boat buil at still waiting for an offioin trial. This ie the boat that was built a Dubnqne to help Senator Allison and Congressman Henderson at a time when they needed it, but it is probably thi last time tbe government will be worket that way. It might' as well order its eteam engines at Naples. Tbe Ericsson has been out a number of times, bat invariably something has gone wrong with the machinery which required it to pat back to port. state LiCKtslatures. Muoh of the legislation of our state assemblies is an illustration of the ' 'mistakes of Moses. "The reason is that bills become laws without having been thoroughly examined as . to their effect They are frequently rushed through without due regard even to their clear meaning or grammatical construction. The result is a rich harvest for the lawyers, who have reason to bless the state legislatures. To obviate some of these drawbacks the new constitution of New York provides that all bills shall be printed and laid before the legislators in their final form at least thrfe days before their passage unless the governor certifies that they must be passed immediately. Another amendment prohibits forever the attaching of "riders" to appropriation pills. This, it is thought, will do something to prevent hasty and bad lawmaking. An expert ought to be employed in every legislature to examine all laws before their passage. The state legislature does not get the consideration it deserves. To it are delegated by tbe national constitution all matters not expressly mention ed in the federal document It makes even the qualifications for suffrage. The regulation of the sale of intoxicating drinks, of buying and selling within tbe state and all matters pertaining to charity and sanitation, the direction of tbe education of its citizens, all these belong to the lawgivers of the separate commonwealths. In the state legislature, too, are trained the men who really in after years guide this nation in the paths of peace, wisdom and pros parity. It is true that rich men may buy themselves a seat in tbe United States senate. But these are not the senators wbo become statesmen. The real states man in congress is tbe one who louj ago, a poor young man, trained himsell in parliameutay usage, in spoeohmakiug and in acquaintance with public ques (ions in tbe stato legislature. There is no training school for statesman in tbis country except the local legislature. Tobooomo a inoniber of the legislature is a worthy object of ambi tiou for aspiring young wen. Ouo who proves himself wise and incorruptible there is almost sure to be iuvited by his follow citizens lutor oil to take his seat in the national legislature. If tho basis of civilization is tho fuw ily, then cortniuly tho basis of tho ro public is tho individual state. Its locu lawmakers have it iu« their power t build up it* citizenship and its pros parity, HALL CAtHE. GEOBQE DU MAUKIEB. TWO WORLD FAMOUS AUTHORS. Two of the literary sensations of the present time are "Trilby," by Gco»g» du Manner, the famous novelist and artist, and "The Manxman," by Hall Caine, whose novel, " The Deemster," attracted wide attenbon.a few years ago. owners aad shippers. The unions guaranteed the bftt service ht moderate prices. ' This being the case, inducements for bringing in outside labor were removed. The dock unions finally made them- j selves wholly independent by forming ] into "nations," so called, each of which handled a special line of freight. All the laborers on the wharves were included in ono or another of these. If men were needed to unload a vessel, the leaders of tho unions hired them to the owner of the cargo at a given price to do the work. There was always a profit in the wages over and above a more living for the laborer. This profit went into the common fund, and at the end of a stated time was divided among all •the laborers. Bo it remains to this day. are well enough as they are even when they are ugly enough to stop a watch. Teeth, complexions, figures, skin and hair are so neglected that it is bard to believe we really are civilized. It is time the race was taking np the matter of beauty culture < in earnest. Men need it as much as women. Developing the muscles, feeding like rational human beings, keeping the skin and teeth clean, are some of the ways in which the average person can make himself agreeable looking. Round shouldera are a disgrace. Above all, he needs to keep his soul clean and healthy by honesty, good temper and purity of life. Respectable Whisky Shops. Sweden and Norway have achieved them—Sweden and Norway that ten ears ago had the name of being tbe most drunken countries in tbe world. Tow they are models of sobriety com- ared to even the United States. The change has been wrought by the ew liquor law under which a city gov- rnment takes charge of the sale of in- oxicating drinks. In Sweden "no man an make a cent" from liquor selling, 'he city government buys at wholesale iqnors of guaranteed purity, designates he places at which they shall be sold nd the hours, and then puts a man in barge on a salary. The less whisky be man sells the more successful he is considered to be as a business man. Ie must be one of tbe most reputable itizens of the town, or he will not be permitted to have charge of a saloon; The saloon itself is a plain; four wall ed room. No pictures decorate it; no warm stove sends out genial comfort ?here is not even a chair to sit'down n. A man may buy whisky by the drink. He drinks it and is sent off about bis business. - He may not have another drink of spirits under three tours. The liquor shops are not opened 111 8 o'clock in the morning. They are closed at the noon hour and closed at 7:80 in the evening in winter and 8 in summer. On pay days the saloons are shut before tbe workmen get money, and the day before a holiday they close at noon. The result is that drunkenness Sweden and Norway is decreasing perceptibly aud steadily. in the American navy. Not till the summer of 1895 will the Iowa and Brooklyn be ready for launching. .The town will not be finished complete till 1898. Two other vessels of the navy are at the same shipyard—the, Indiana and tbe Massachusetts. The Indiana will be ready for her trial trip by next July, it is- believed. The cruiser Minneapolis lias just beetf completed by the Cramps, and she is a beautiful ship, white like the famous squadron of evolution.

Fifty years ago, in December, 1844, 98 English weavers met in the town of Rochdale and resolved to club their little spare money together and buy a lot of groceries wholesale. Their combined fund amounted to $140. With thi* they laid in supplies by the barrel of sugar, flour, oatmeal and butter. They brought their barrels to a room and sold tho contents to themselves at retail. Each paid each as he went and bought the goods at, the current retail price if the neighborhood. They had not expected to make any profit. They had hoped simply to get a bettor quality of goods, with better weight and measure. This was the beginning of tbe great Rochdale co-operative store system which has revolutionized much of tbe trade of Great Britain among the bettor class of working people. Whim thohoii' out factory weavers came to cast up »o counts, they found there was a baud' some profit for themselves from the re tail prioo the goods had brought. At Rochdale is celebrated this Deoom her the jubilee of the co-operative store •yetoin. It is managed still on, lines similar to those laid down iu the begin niug by tho 38 weavers. Any one who,pays an initiation f* of $6 may become a member aud »lMire in tho profits. But now co-oporatlvo stores have sprung np all over Gre»J Britain.

The most ornamental tree is the dogwood. It is a glorious bloomer in early spring. Its foliage is plumolike and beautiful. Its autumnal coloring is brilliant and varied, and its late rod berries supply its fourth phase of beauty. The best all round tree is the sugar maple. Its form is graceful, its foliage fine, its autumnal coloring the richest of all trees and its sap delightful. But the monarch of the forest'is the white oak. It grows slowly, but sturdily. There are oaks in this country which were here when Columbus landed, and they will be h/jre a thousand years after we are all dead. Little attention has been paid as yet in this country to making the landscape beautiful'with avenues of trees. No man could leave a finer or more enduring monument behind him than several avenues of our magnificent forest trees. Double rows of them of alternating kinds make the most effective. Oaks, evergreens and maples are some of tho varieties that may be made to alternate beautifully. A double row of evergreens and the great, luxuriant catalpos, with their gorgeous blossoms, constitutes a famous .venue at the entrance to a stately home n southern Ohio. But the oak is tho grandest of all. It can .withstand tree pests, storms and age better than any other tree. Its average life is 1,400 years. If we poor mortals could have the years, strength and serenity of tbe oak, then life would >e worth living. Itong Ufa ID the Now World. It is one of thoeigusof tbe times that ihero is so much discussion on the sub' loot of lengthening ordinary human ifo to a century or more and preserving all that time the prime of intellectual and bodily vigor. Editor Charles Dudley Warner, in Harper's Magazine, presents his idea of the. matter. He says faoU show that America Is peculiarly well adapted to human longevity. Men and women in our favored itemisphero ought to be at their best from 70 to 100. What novels fiction writers could give us then, with all that experience, practice and wisdom behind them! In southern California several Indiana are known to have reached ages .ranging front 190 to 140. At Tolnoa, in Mexico, thoro was a man who, by the records, lived to bo 103. In California, Mexico and the Andes regions iu South America these agod persons kavo boon found. But that longevity is not peculiar to tho warmer, drier sections of America is shown by the popular saying that in the Connecticut valley the inhabitants never die, but dry up and blow away. At prouout, however, by the time a person gets tbo wealth, wisdom and experience necessary to enable him to live happily lie is worn out and bit* to die. This, Mr. Warner contends, is all wrong. When we stop rushing at suoh tremendous speed, we shall have tiino to develop naturally and shall live out onr century of happy, beautiful life. The American national dish: Fried pork. On the naval vessels they have built in the last ten years the Cramps'have earned in speed premiums alone over $1,350,000. The Minneapolis herself won a speed prize of $400,000. A preacher says that the question so often asked, "Why do the people stoj away from the churches?" should reac like this, "Why do the churches stay away from 'the people?"
