[Entered u second-claw matter port rat Cfflce, Februarj 8, 181*8.1 FRIDAY MORNING. MARCH 1. THE CABINET CHANGE- Postmaster General Bisaell has tendered blBj reeignaiion and President Cleveland has already named his successor. It appears that the newspaper correspondents knew what they were writing about when they Bent out the report several weeks ago that Mr. Biesell would rosi^c and the denials o! the Postmaster General were only to blind the public and probably to keep Grover from, beicg pestered by ambitious Democratic politicians who would have been hot alter tbo place. The' rtsignation was not officially tendered until the President had completed hib arrangements for filling the place The reasons given for Mr. Biesellu resignation, is that be was not able to stand the expense of living in Washington in the style in which a cabinet officer Is expected to maintain under the pressnt administration. He 1 said to have expended $30.000 more than his official salary during; the two years that be was Postmaster General There is evidently rery little JetTersonian simplicity about the present administration. Cleveland and the money kicgs who he hob-nobs with are setting too rapid a pace for tbo men of moderate means who are in official life. While this may have had much to 'do with Mr. BlsseU's resignation, 'it is also doubtless truo that te wished to sever bis connection with an administration that has become so unpopular with the people. There is no great honor'in being connected with the Cleveland administration, certainly not enough to pay $15,000 a year for tho privilege. ' • ; .. Wrn. L, Wilson o£ West Virginia, has been named by the President, to succeed Biasoll. In selecting one of the authors of the Wilson-Gorman tariff law for the honor, the President ahows that he wishes to favor those who have almost wrecked the finances Ol tho country and who gave him an opportunity of putting several million dollars in tho pockots of his foreign banker friends. THE Immigrant Restriction League la showing much activity in Sow York and otter cities.

ONLY AGAINST LIVE CATTLE. rrcnch Embiu'KO J>OIM Not Extend to I)rcs8<!tl or Ciinncil Itcuf. PARIS, Feb. 2S.—Contrary to tho cabled reports received here the United States ambassador to France, Mr. James B. Enstice, has not received instructions to protest against the French exclusion of American cattle from this country. It seems that there is a misapprehension in the United States in regard to the scope of tho decree, which applies only to American live cattle and which does not affect tinned or dressed beef. It i:.; learned that France took this step with the greatest reluctance. M. Hrmotnux, tho minister of foreign affairs, says: ••I, myself, was .sroutlv opposed to the Issue of the decree, anil it was only done after tho minister of aerlculluro had assured us thut there was positive' evidence that disease amons tho cattle landed existed. "I am not willina to agree to any step which could be construed as unfriendly to the United States, but Germany, Belgium and England have already taken exactly tho same precautions, and vo sire tho last nation to do so." .

WASBES-GTO-V, Feb. 23.—The physicians of this city are now discussing a phenomenon offered by a young colored girl who is having the smallpox for the second time. : .Financial Uoih- The bombastic talk of Vest and William L. Wilson about "comfortable surplus in the treasury," is simply of a piece with the disastrous financial bosh with which they have been deluding the people for years. The cold, unmistakable facts are that in January the treasury ran behind &5,700,000 in ordinary expenditures, not including SV "00 000 for redemption of bonds which had become due. This made a total deficit for the month of $5,900,000, or at the rate of more than 5100,000,000 a year. Their recklessness of statement is the more glaring when it is recollected that at the very time they were making it the committees to which they -belong were anxiously considering a proposition to increase the tases on whisky and beer to help fill the drained treasnry.-Xational Tribune.

Tho New York Herald Admits That Trade Is Pnralyzc<l. -Factories aro Idle, labor Is unemployed, trade Is paralyzed, money Is 'a drug and gold is ruslsinK from our shoros." The foregoing startling announcement was made by the New York Herald January 21, 1S95. The Ilerald is one of the strongest supporters of free | trade in tho Dnitcd States. It made a j determined fight, both with fallacies j and falsehoods, in tho political campaign of 1802 to elect a president and congress that were pledged to free trade. More than two years after its party was successful, and almost _two years after they assumed the administration of our nation affairs, the Herald is compelled to admit that the result has been as quoted above. This un-American sheet has from time to time suggested various remedies to help its administration out of tho hole into which h lias become submerged .by its anti-American policy. We recollect how it clamored for tho repeal of the Sherman silver law, claiming that such repeal would bo the salvation of the country. \Ve recollect how it clamored for the .passage of a new tariff! bill, claiming that, the abolition of protection would be tho salvation of the country. More recently we have witnessed its struggles for a new currency system; and again for free ships, both of which vrere to be of untold benefit to the masses of our people- Its latest cry is one of dire distress, and that the country can only be relieved by "a popular loan, the only practicable saving measure." , Has the Herald forgotten that under its free-trade administration two loans, amounting in the aggregate to one hundred million dollars, have been floated? How then will what it is pleased to term "a popular loan" relieve the situation? As long as the administration of this country remains in the hands of men utterly incompetent to properly fulfill their duties from an American standpoint, these men having been elected partly through tho agency of the Herald, and as long as these incompetents maintain a tariff policy that is of advantage to foreign countries and destructive in its operation upon American interests, just so long will our gold leave the national treasury, no matter whether raised by "a popular" or any other kind of a loan. The Herald seems to think that meney raised and placed in the treasury by what it is pleased to term "a popular loan" will stay in the treasury. We should like to know by what process of reasoning it arrives at this conclusion, and what sacred, preservative halo can be encircled around gold that is collected even by a Herald's "popular loan." ; It must be that its over-indulgence in its present diet of crow has caused the Herald to become dyspeptic, though it still retains some symptom of sound digestion when it says: "Check the outflow of gold and relieve industry and trade from the paralysis which is inflicting immeasurable losses upon the people." . Certainly this would be the remedy, and the manner ia which the outflow of gold could be checked, industry and trade can be relieved from the paralysis which is inflicting immeasurable losses upon the people "is by the immediate repeal of the existing tariff bllL" By this means and by no other mdans can it be done- It is the "one practicable way to avert the impending crisis and lift the country out of the present slough" into which the Herald acknowledges the country has fallen under the two years' administration of the political party which it helped to elec.t TWO THOWS AND PIGTH. Tho Lisping- rhrnso Wlilcli SlarLcd » Ken. tncKlnn on the lloatl to Ifortiinc. Tho man took a long- draw from his cigar, blew the smoke in curls from his lips, and as-he crossed his leg's told a. Courier-Journal reporter this story of a man who is cow a prominent hanker at Frankfort. "When jny friend was a young- man he was by no means in good circumstances," said he, "but ho was lifted iato wealth by his lisping-, a fault which he tried hard but unsuccessfully to overcome. At that time ho had a small farm, and, us his corn crop came out well, though it was almost unsalable on account, of the oversupplied market and low prices, ho concluded he would purchase two sows and pigs and fatten them on the corn. He culled the hired man. -•••John.', said he, I want you U> go and buy me two thows and piglh.'" •' 'When-: 1 the hired man yelled, 'do you really mean it'." " 'Yeth I do,' lisped the friend. "Well. John disappeared and my- friend looked for him to return tho next morning-. But he did not come. Another day and finally five days passed, and the farmer became uneasy. At last John put in. appearance. "'Where on earth have you been? my friend asked in-astonishment. '•"I've been for your hogs.' " 'Did you get them'?' "'Ycs,"sir. Yonder they come down the road. And I tell you I had trouble • getting them; and I had to g-ive g-ood prices for them. They're g-ood ones, though.' "By that time the poor farmer had ^ nearly fainted, for gazing- in tho di- \_^ rcction pointed out by John, he saw a whole army of pig's coming- down tho road. There were two thousand of them. "'Je-ru-tha-le.m!' gasped the man. TThat on earth ' "John told him that he had done just what he was told; had bought two thousand pigs. He had paid for them bv giving orders on his employer. My friend was almost paralyzed, but ho Baw he had to grin and bear it. He made a contract with a neighbor to fatten the hogs, and in the meantime John's orders on him had begun pouring in like snow fakes inasnowstorm. They broke the man up. Shortly after that the Mexican war broke out. and the government offered fabulous prices for provisions and stores for the army. . 3Iv friend's hogs had been fattened up, and he sold them, to the government and he made four or five times as much money as he paid lor them and got his start toward wealth."—Louisville Courier-Journal- JWore SiSbHOilinff There vcill doubtless be one good result from the severe drought which most parts of the country have suffered the past season. It will direct the attention of farmers to the necessity for subsoUing. Even in the dryest sections rainfall enough comes each season to make the crop if the water can be husbanded until time of need. -This can be done by breaking -up the hard subsoil, so as to enable it to hold a greater quantity of moisture. This will do no good, however, unless there is outlet beneath for the surplus water to pass away. Stagnant water is death to the roots of most kinds of valuable crops, When a field is uuderdrained, one thorough subsoiling 1 will keep the soil deep and moist for many years. The frost penetrates a drained soil, and this keeps its particles from running- together in a solid 'mass, as soil doe» when water is allowed to become stag- . cunt in it.
