Kntared at tbe Lotfinsport, Ind.,postofflce as •eoonfl cl«»s mall matter, as provided by law. MR. McKiNLE? has a congress bis bands, on THE president, has eiven warning to the spoilsmen t.nat the civil service law must not only stand, bat that It mast be further extended. This is dreadful. A BOND issue Is inevitable unless there shall soon be a great increase In revenues. Up to December 1st, after counting the 118,000,000 paid Into the treasury by the purchasers of the Union Pacific railway, there still remains a defi.'-it of $28,000,000 ror tbe first five months of the Dingley tariff. It Is probable, too, that the gold conspirators as a means of forcing the government to do its bidding, will shortly set the endless chain In motion. They desire another bond issue because bond issues profit Wall street. By this means ao effort will be made to scare con- gross Into acceding to the demands of the gold conspirators. Look out for another (told rail on the treasury before many months. IT would oe well for the people to keep watch of the trend of legislation for the next six months. The effort will be made to turn over to the national banks the exclusive prlv- liege of providing the money supply. The national-banks exerted a powerful Influence ID the last campaign. They contributed with the trusts and ether privileged corporations the munitions of war. They want their reward along with the other contributors. Secretary Gage, a leading banker, bas already submitted the demands of the national banks. They want authority to Issue all the paper money required to do the business of the country. They want the tax on bank circulation reduced one half. They want the greenbacks and the silver certificates retired at once and national bank notes substituted. The banking interests are a hundred fold more powerful than In Jackson's day and an attempt will be made at the present session of congress to carry out their plans for securing a monopoly of the business of issuing money, The campaign of 1900 promises to hinge upou this Issue. It is closely associated with the question of free coinage. The people should watch closelv the action of congress on the proposition to retire the greenbacks. in a Hut Snell. I recommend that provision be made for the issue of refunding loan bonds, payable after ten years at the pleasure of the government, such bonds to bear interest at the rate of two and one-half per cent per annum, PAYABLE, PRINCIPAL AND INTEREST, IN GOLD COIN, and that the secretary of the treasury be authorized to issue such bonds and receive in payment therefor, with an equitable allowance for the difference in Interest, any part or ail of the out•landing bonds of the XJnited States which mature by their terms of payment In the years 1904, 1907 and 1925.—Secretary Gage. The Coming Campaign. The Democratic district conventions will be held next year on January llth. Ordinarily these conven tiocs are held on January Sth, but as that date falls on Saturday, it was deemed prudent to defer the meetings until the Tuesday following, because if held on Saturday many dele gates would be unable to return home for Sunday. The Eleventh district convention will be held at Peru and the county convention to choose ielegates to the district convention will be held la this county oa Saturday, January Sth. The meeting of the state centra committee, at Indianapolis yester day, was largely attended by repre sentatlvs Democrats from all parts of the state and the reports from aU sections were Invariably encouraging, and the general belief among the most careful observers is that Indl ana will go Democratic next year by a Tery handsome majority. At the conference yesterday there was a unanimity of sentiment In fa Tor of strict adherence to the plat form of principles adopted at Chicago and tbe sentiment of the Democrats of tbe state as voiced by the repre •entailves of the party Is well nigh unanimously In favor of tbe renomi nation of Mr. Bryan for the presi • dencv in 1900. not into the federal treasury but into the coffers of a privileged class. Had Bryan been elected a way would have been found by which an income tax would be constitutional as It always was until the senile Field and the acrobatic Shiras and some other members of the supreme conrt, aggregating a bare majority of one in that body, reversed the rulings of a century and decreed the system of taxing people according to what they have and what they. cost, the govern- j meut— a system the essence of which Is In vogue in every state in the union—a just and righteous system —was unconstitutional. Had Bryan been elected there would have been leas government by Injunctions than we have bad in the past few months to the shame of an outraged people. Had Bryan oeen elected the wheat crop in this country would have been as large as it was and the wheat crop abroad as short as it was and there would have been as there has been a large export of wheat from the United States to Europe— uhe one thing that has brought whatever measure of renewed business we are enjoying, and heaven knows it has been none too large.—Terre Haute Gazette. ering reciprocity arrangements witij us under the new tariff. Other countries •will follow. This is infinitely better than a destructive tariff war. Cause of the Vienna Riots. The origin of the violent scenes in cte Austria-Hungarian parliament house is to be found in a race war "between Czechs and Germans. The people of Bohemia are Czechs, pronotmced "checks." They are powerful and aggressive, and the people of Poland sympathize with them, being of a kindred race. Both are opposed to the Germans. Count Badeni, the resigning premier of he imperial go%'ernrnent, is a Pole by birth and believed by the German deputies in the Austrian parliament to be completely in sympathy with the Czechs. Tbe Czechs, in connection -with the clerical party, who contend for Roman Catholic rights and privileges, are n the majority when they act together and quite outvote the German deputies and have laws passed to suit themselves. Che Czechs are Catholics. The Czechs are desirous that tbeir anguage shall be the official language of the state, the tongue taught in the schools of Bohemia. A bill rnak- ng the Czech language co-ordinate with the German in official documents and in school was up for passage in the parliament. The German minority re- iorted to the role of obstructionists and did all they could day after day to prevent by delay the enactment of the law. There is a large German population in Bohemia, aud the proposition to make the Czech language equal to the German officially was extremely distasteful to them. The most obstructive and violent of the German deputies were finally forcibly expelled from the chamber by order of the president, Herr von Abra- hamovics, who himself was kicked and beaten by enraged opponents. The German deputies labor under the misfortune of having for tbeir leader in the reichsrath Dr. Wolff, a man of coarse and quarrelsome nature. Ha4 Brjam Been Elected. Had Bryan been elected there would be no Dingier deformity on tbe statute books today, increasing tbe burdens of taxation on tbe backs of th* people tad bringing the money United States and AVest Indies. The Review of Reviews does well to all attention to the need of a closer watch by the United States over the West Indies. These islands are suffering from a grievous industrial decline, shared alike by Cuba, Jamaica, Haiti, Santo Domingo and the smaller ones. The movement of civilization in the islands is universally retrograde instead of forward for some reason. "As compared with thp West Indies, the march of improvement all over tbe continent of Africa is in this decade at a many times greater rate." The Review declares quite correctly that anv movement which, shall tend to lift these islands out of their "political, social and industrial quagmire" must come from the United States, The editor says: \Vo should not hesitate to bring the republics of Haiti and Santo Domingo under our moral influence and protection to o far greater extent than heretofore. To that end our government might well attach greater importance to our representation in those republics by increasing diplomatic and consular salaries, by sending naval vessels more frequently to visit tlio island, and by pressing to n conclusion our long continued negotiations for a port and a coaling station. American commercial interests in the island might moreover be increased very considerably under a reasonable amount of encouragement. Dr. Shaw thinks it would be unfortunate indeed if tbe American company •which holds the foreign debt of Haiti and administers its finances should sell out to a European syndicate. The United States is the country which should help the West Indies by its moral power and its encouragement, and we should see to it that our influence remains paramount iu.ac least all the independent West Indies. An Answer to a Question. The editor of Harper's Magazine gives his answer to the question whether it is ; possiU* for a man in the nineteenth ; century to live the perfect life according to the Christian idea. The mistake most people make in considering this question is to assume , that one aiming at such an end would ; have to live exactly the same sort of wandering, poor aud lonely life as that of tbe founder of Christianity and the apostles. Nothing is further from the trntb, as the editor of Harper's shows. He tells us be knew in London a stock- . broker, a refined, intellectual, well to | y A task which will cover him vrith distinction and redound to tbe benefit of his country is that intrusted by tbe United States government to Hon. John A, Kassoii, commercial commissioner to Europe. Mr. Kasson will visit nation after nation there and endeavor to negotiate with the respective governmenis reciprocity treaties mutually advantageous to them and us. In private life the best sort of a trade is that in which each tide has something the other wants and is •willing to give justTalue for, and tbe Mine is true of national trading. France, and Cjanada are already consid- do man, very successful in business, j with a beautiful, happy borne. The | broker's life brought to him a knowledge j of the suffering and evil among the aluia people of London. Ere be himself was scarcely aware of. it his warm sympathies were leading him to help these poor sinners and sufferers. At length he became so absorbed in ! the work that he gave up the stockbroker trade and devoted all his time to tbe "submerged tenth." Finally it ( •was borne in ou his mind that in order j to cope with crime and suffering most effectively he must have more than the mere authority of the layman. Accordingly be studied and was ordained minister in tbe church of England. Then be was made pastor of a parish, first in Sobo, nest in Marylebone, "tbe best grounds in which to fight tbe devil in London." He made no bowl; he adopted no sensational methods. Policemen and detectives knew him well and were bis friends and belpers in his pious •work. He wore no sanctimonious face, shouted no loud moutbed denunciations of anybody or anything. He simply did tbe work that came before him, and there was plenty of it. And thus he lived and died, cheerful, serene and kindly, never bothering bis people with questions of theology any more tban Christ did, never patronizing them or assuming missionary airs. He died a sacrifice to bis love for humanity, and at his funeral, from the slums and alleys, from byways and tumble down tenement bouses, bis people gathered and wept at tbeir loss till tbe cburch, the sidewalk and the street were filled with the strange throng. "I never saw any funeral so impressive, so majestic, as this," says the editor. How to Secure Pure W»t«r. Filtering paper and a medium size funnel are all that is needed. The paper, little as you may know it, can be bought at any pharmacy and is very cbeap. It comes prepared to fold inside tbe funnel. Theu gently pouring water into the funnel the paper, strains it perfectly .pure. Of course a heavy stream •will break tbe paper, and a pint or ttvo Is about all that can be filtered at once without spending a great deal of time upon it, but a little perfectly pure water is often invaluable, and this is often tbe easiest way to get it And always remember that almost any drinking tvater fresh drawn is purer than any water that bas been standing in the air in open vessels even half an hour. Too often -we think only whether water that bas been standing is cold or warm. Now, cold -water absorbs more injurious gases and absorbs them faster than \varm. Set a oitcher of ice water iu an inhabited raom, and in a few hours it will have absorbed nearly all the respired and perspired gases in the place. Tbe air \vill be purer, but tbe water filthy. At an ordinary temperature a pint of vrater will absorb a pint of carbonic acid gas and several pints of ammonia gas. Children should be taught not to drink water left standing indoors. How to Make Quince Cordial. Select ripe but sound quinces. Rub off tbe fur and cut them into little pieces. Pour just enough water over then; to cook them. Let them cook one hour. Strain off all tbe juice that will pass through a course muslin cloth. Strain the pulp left through a puree sieve and use it for marmalade, cooking it with half a pound of sugar to a pint of itself. Take the strained juice, measure it, and add a cup of sugar to every pint of juice. After it has cooked 10 minutes add two-thirds of a pint of French brandy to every pint of the liquid. It is not necessary to use the best brandy, as a good cooking brandy will do. Let tbe cordial stand in a stone jar for a week and then bottle it. It is fit for use sooner, but it improves by seeping it a year. A great eclipse of tbe sun -will occur on tbe morning of Jan. 22 next. It will not be visible in tbe United States, but that will make little difference to science, for now astronomers go to tbe eclipse instead of waiting for it to come to them in tbeir own country. The best views of the phenomenon aro to be bad in India, and tbither scientists of many nations will journey and wait for it. It is to be hoped tbe sun will give them a good show. Financial experts are of opinion that if congress were to empower the secre,- tary of the United States treasury to borrow on short time bonds—say one, two or three years—money to meet temporary deficiencies in tbe public revenues, redeeming tbe bonds when there was a surplus of casb, such legislation would at this time meet tbe exigencies of our government. Furniture Coverings. As a furniture covering tbe liberty velvets are more picturesque tban ever. The Decorator and Furnisber says: "Tbe tones are splendid, particularly in blues, tbe designs extremely large and tbe sbadings exquisitely beautiful. In yellows tbe tints are of a richness seldom SPOU before, tbe sunflower apparently taking the lead. So big are these schemes that one blossom or conventionalized flower will form for a chair the seat, while the back will embrace perhaps a flower and two leaves, wbicb for this device is charmingly effective." Tbe positKin of the United States, diplomatic and financial, is today the jnost enviable of that of any nation on the globe. IS IT A TIUFLE? That Common Trouble Add Dyspepsia or (tour Stomach Sow Recognized as a Cause of Serious Disease. Acid dyspepsia, commonly called hearl-bura or sour stomach, is a form or indigestion resulting from fermentation ot the food. The stomach being too weak to prompty digest it, the food remains until fermentation begins, filling the;stomach with gas, and a bitter, sour, burning taste in the mouth is often rpresent. This condition soon becomes chronic, and being an every day occurrence, is giyen but little attention. Because dyspepsia is not immediately fatal, many people do nothing for the trouble. Within a recent period a remedy has been discovered prepared solely to cure dyspepsia and stomach troubles. It is known as Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets and it is now becoming rapidly used and prescribed as a radical cure for every form of dyspepsia. Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets have been placed before the public and are sold by druggists everywhere at 50 cents per package. It is prepared by the Stuart Co., Marshall, Mich., and while it promptly and effectually restores a vigorous digestion, at the some time is perfectly harmless and will not Injure -the most delicate stomach, but on the contrary by giving perfect digestion strengthens the stomach, improves the appetite and makes life worth living.
