HABK to the cannon's roar! But the cannon in Court park will never roar. ^^__ IT is now given out tnat McKinley's message to congress will give little encouragement to tbe Cuban patriots. BROTHER STTJTKSMAN oimu an- novmces that he will be a candidate for congress. He Is a lively young man and will give Major Steele a close race, THE Chicago Tribune now sees grave danger in retiring the greenbacks and issuing bank notee, because "the necessity the banks would be under of satisfying the demands of the note holde.-s would make it much harder to meet the demands of the depositors, because the depositors, knowing this fact, would want to draw out their money before the bank broke." Is It possible that tbe great advocates of "sound money" are going to turn their backs on the \»anks?, An eflortTwill be madeTat the coming session of congress to repeal the «lTil service law. There comes an awful wall of disappointment on account of President McKlnley's inclination to stand by and extend the law. As matters now stand, Democrats occupy most of the minor positions in the government service and there Is no way to get them out. Thousands of aspiring politicians •ontended for McKinley and "sound money" expecting that they would be provided for and given rewards commensurate with their services. Now they find that they can get nothing unless the civil service law is repealed. It leaves the poor congressman 1n a very bad position. It they Tote to repeal the civil service law the mugwumps will desert them and U they don't make am effort to repeal the law the disappointed office seekers will be after them. The next •ongress will be full ot new faces. THERE has been a general reduction in wages at the Haverhill shoe factories, varying 10 to 20 per cent.. In one factory ihe wages of cutters have been reduced from $15 to «12 a, week. This is a strange performance In a country blessed with a tariff the avowed purpose 01 which was to Increase wages and to bring in prosperity. It muss be thai, Mr. Dlngley was not sufficiently careful of the interests of tbe men tbat make shoes. A 20 per cent raduction in wages is a serious thing In some cases It may mean the difference between happiness and prosperity and misery and adversity.— Indianapolis News. There is nothing strange about a cat in wages. The laboring people are pal3 in gold and as tbe purchasing power of gold continues to Increase wages must correspondingly fall. The tariff has nothing to do with wages. roan I've no use for. A man who would desert bis party would desert his country, aud a mugwump cannot be trusted. "There Is such a thlog as fashion !n politics, and these Mugwumps, whnseguldtiiK'principle IB that ^ he best dressed citizen la the best, citizen, lure to them many weak, would- be fashionables who, with, pasts t<. cover up, find in Mugwumpery *hai they deem to be a garmeut uf respectability. "Usually :i Mugwump Is a hypocrite, false to everybody but himself. It bis nation 18 in a war, dne-t be defend her—does ha eolut? Never. No man ever found a Mugwump with arms ia bis hands fighting for his country. No battlefield of any age ever saw the co.or of a Mugwump's blood. None ever will, ia this country your Mugwump is generally an An^lomaniac; alwa ; s licking Brlttsa boots. Oae of your Mug- wump's earmarks is to reprove patriotism as jingoism." VKHAT DDES THIS NBN? How Mcltinley's Prosperity Affects *k« Workingraan. DEGEAI/ATIOIT OP WHITE LABOE. FRED R. KKTCHAJI, of Chicago, recovered a judgment of $21,000 against the Chicago & Northwestern railroad this week for damages. .He was formerly an employe of the road. The company discharged him and he was blacklisted . He could secure no employment. Without mercy he was followed by the railway officials The verdict he obtained will have a salutary eflect upon corporations There Is nothing meaner thaa the system adopted by railroads for pre •renting men to secure employment. If a man who follows railroading for a livelihood, secures the ill will o railway managers, his chances for securing employment a'terward are Terysllm. The victim who is black listed finds he can get no work. Ttu railway company that, does the blacfe listing is liable for damages, but it ii a very hard matter to secure proof on which to base an action for damages The victim knows that he is black listed, but how can he prove it? i seems that Mr. Ketch am had th proof and the judgment of 821,000 1 not excessive, when it is considered that a man's right to earn a living i Involved in the controversy. Farming In Georgia. Correspondents of the Atlanta Con- ititution have described two model farms tbey visited in the state whose citizens call Chicago the Atlanta of the north. These accounts show that in Georgia at least there is as much money in farming as in anything else if the agriculturist uses his brains. One of the farms was a large cotton plantation in Sumter county. Its owner, Mr. Keill Ray, is a native southerner and a self made man. He did a good job in the making too. When he became of age, he bought a farm for $5,000, paying $2,000 cash. The rest was covered by mortgage. Eay worked nt of that mortgage when hundreds of anners north and south were losing heir^ids and going into bankruptcy. 5y sheer grit and industry, with shrewd management, he got out of debt. In the business of agriculture and that alone, mainly cotton : raising, he ecame a rich man. Last year he sold 20,000 worth of cotton. His laborers are black. He does not find them either azy or drunken. A negro and a mule o together, and with this combination Mr. Ray makes ins farming pay He aises 25 acres of cotton for every mule, lis laborers are summoned to and from vork by a big bell, and they must an- wer it to the minute. As punctual to i'me and as faithful to hours as factory work people are the laborers oa Ray's arm, and he requires them to be so. Ic s tho only way to be successful, he ays. After a tour of the farm he invit- d the correspondent, Mr. P. J. Moran, o dine with him at a table on which %-ery article of food except the salt was aised on tho farm itsell The other model farm is described by Mr. Edwin R. Sharpe. The money that vent iuto it originally was acquired in rade. but that makes it none tho less elf sustaining and successful now. It s near Carrollton, Ga., and. is devoted mainly to* stock raising and dairying, although there are on the farm a gristmill that pays the owner $1,200 a year and 2,000 fruit trees. The owner of the arm, Mr. Joseph Kingsbery, has been able to refute the notion that Jersey ows will not thrive in the south. He has a flue herd of registered Jerseys, also a large number of blooded horses ind swine. The equiue specialty of this beautiful place is fine driving horses, for which there is always a market The father of the present owner bought the farm/in 1S27, riding to visit it upon Morgan horse that traveled 90 miles a day. It is a pity there is not more of this game Morgan blood among horse stock of the resent day. The fine old Morgan's descendants are on the Kingsbery farm to this day. Croker . on Richard Croker whose name i somewhat familiar to the American people, has no love for Mugwumps la a recent Interview he said: "I've no patience with sniveling •hallo w-ches ted' Mug wumprey, I ca respect a man like Platt, who fight, for his convictions and follows hi lag.

There is a strike among the coal miners in what is knowu as the northern Illinois district. These men—white men, and Americans at that—have been laboring for years under the depression brought about by the infamous gold standard. During that period they have twice combined to overthrow Republicanism in their state, although it was the party which held their traditional allegiance.

The appeal was successful. Kinley -was elected. He took his place • in the White. House. He has had a full j session of congress through which he ' has passed that much vaunted protection bill. For one entire year. Republicanism and gold standardism have been in unqualified possession of the high places. The country has passed from winter into the vernal season, from that into autumn, and the harvest has been gathered, added to which the country has been blessed .with dollar wheat, owing to au affliction of Providence in, the old world, and no thanks to Republicanism.. Yet, after all this, what is the situation? The editor of The Times-Herald is the close personal friend of McKinley. He was one of those who carried on tbe incipient campaign preliminary to the national Republican convention and made possible the nomination of bi» friend. He, of all men, should be the. first to be able to paint in glowing colors the success of this Republicanism which was to do so much for the prosperity of the people. It is from the peu of this editor that the following information comes: Chinese miners are to take the place of Americans in the northern All agreeable spots for tourists run through a series of changes. First, they are simple and sensible in their accommodations. Prices are reasonable. Those who visit them are intelligent people of moderate means, literary, artistic and professional. These guests remain outdoors, dress once a day, eat plain, wholesome food and go to bed early. Then comes the next stage. Other people, the rich, have heard of the paradise and sigh for novelty They invade the paradise in swarms. Immediately prices go up; the beauty and simplicity vanish; women and men, too, dress six times a day, and tbe literary and artistic individuals who used to find their haunts there have resting place no mora "Society" has drawn its poisonous trail over all. It turns night into day; it is on dress parade every moment Every beautiful spot on this continent and in Europe has thus been ruined by "society. " But fate takes its revenge. All the world rushes to see the Four Hundred on parade. Vulgar rich and vulgar poor elbow the exclusive. The nickel fakir and the dime niioseum follow tt.s carriages of the millionaires. The place becomes the resort of the cheap excursionists.

Couper lost his fight in the United States court yesterday *or the place of assistant postmaster, not because the civil service laws did not protect Major Couper, but because Judges Newman and Pardee decided that a court of equity has no right to interfere in matters of the kind and that such questions must be decided by the civil service commission at Washington.

Best Ship of Her Class In tlie World. Washington, Nov. 20. — Commodore ^«..**«.~-~« •• --- - - Dewey, president of the naval trial Tuesday and Others SOOn as provi- board, has returned to Washington from . , t . , „ „„„. „« the sea trial of the Iowa, which he de- be made to take caie oi c , lareg is the best shlp O f her class in the be bodyguarded by 100 former Chi cago police. An agent of the Chinese Six Companies was in Chicago last -ss-eek and made a contract with the General Wilmington Coal company to deliver 800 Chinamen at the mines of the Wilmiagton-Braidwood district. The first consignment oi Chinamen will be there on next sion can them. Arrangements for an additional 1,000 Chinese miners have been made conditional on the success of those engaged. Elaborate preparations have been completed to take care of the first 800 China- men and to give them ample protection. What a pretty picture this description makes! Thousands of Americans, with thousands of women and children dependent •upon them for support, are to-be turned out of employment, tnrced out of their homes in the cold and pitiless winter, to go starving or begging as they may, -while their places are to be taken by Chinese slaves, imported for the express degradation of white labor. These slaves are to be guarded by gat- ling gnus and a regiment of police. Shot and shell and canister await the appearance of the trembling Americans if they should venture to come within sight for negotiation. Not only this, bnt the information is given that another thousand of these slavish laborers are to be imported upon the success of the present movement Then we will be presented with a sight of white Americans, men, women and children, crying for bread, as the pitiless winds of the great lake region ruthlessly pelt their forras as they wander through the valleys of northern Illinois. The stars and stripes will be run up over the worse than convict camps of slavish Chinese, working for starvation prices smd protected by the American uniform, while all around them will be .mounted the frowning gatlings to mow down those very men who voted for Mr. ilcKitiley last fall. There is Republicanism ! Take it, size it up, measure it and pass your judgment upon it.
