TKBMB Of 8UB8CEIPTION — Daily per week, 10 cent* ; per month 40 cent*; per r •triotljr In advance) t*-*0 The Weekly Pharos and the Saturday Pharos, the two forming the Semi-Weekly •^itlon. $L25 a year, strictly In advance. Entered at theLogangport, Ind.,poBtofflce as leoond cl*» mall matter, as provided by law THIS la said to be a Billion dollar country, but It has just dawned upon congress that the Dlngley tariff law will not provide enough money to meet tte expenses of a Billion dollar congress. THK Democrats ID congress, although In a hopeless minority, are unanimously agreed upon the question of opposing the schemes proposed by the gold conspirators. Tbey will unanimously oppose the sale of gold bonds and resist all efforts to retire the grenbacks and treasury notes. Their course will be approved by the people. THE Republican platform of 1888 arraigned the first Cleveland administration aa having attempted to demonetize silver and the money plank in the Republican platform of 1892 declared that "the American people by tradition and Interest favor bimetallism," and in 1896 it declared In favor of international bimetallism. Where does the Republican party stand today? Is it not seeking the permanent establishment of gold monometallism and in doing so is it not violating its pledges to the people? • THE plan of the gold conspirators is to change the national debt from a debt payable in coin to one payable In gold. The conspiracy has existed since the demonetization of silver in 1873. If the conspirators can force congress to make the obligations of the government payable in gold the last act tn their scheme of plunder will have been carried out. They insist that this is what the election of McKlnley meant, and they dictated the selection of a secretary of the treasury who favors their purposes. Not only do they want the contract between the people and the bondholders changed, but they want bonds Bold to create an interest bearing debt to take the place of the green backs. to choose between the rule of th people and tbe tyranny of the trusts. THE Democrats of the lower hoas of congress, at a caucus held, las night, adopted the following . r'es&lu tions as exprMSlTe of the Democrat! position on tile questions now -pandmg: '-. Re solved, That it is the .setfjie:^! this caucus than the Democrat?! members of the house of repre sentativea ought to resist all efforts direct or indirect,to retire the green backs and treasury cotes. Resolved, second, That we are op pused to and will resist all attempts to extend the privileges of nationa banks, or to reduce the taxes wnich they now pay. Resolved, third, That we favor the ea;ly consideration of and passage n: the senate resolution recognizing thai a condition of war exists in th< island of Cuba between the govern ment of Spain and the Cuban people To >ax Incomes. As a means of raising more revenue to meet the Increasing ex pendltures of an extravagant govern ment, it is proposed to amend the constitution to provide for taxing Incomes. Tbe following amendment has been introduced In congress: Article XVi..—The power of con gress to levy and collect direct taxes snail not be restricted exclusively to the method of apportionment among the several states, according no their respective numbers, but congress shall have full power to lay and collect a tax upon Incomes, without regard to the source or sources *hence the Income is derived. In laying such tax upon incomes regard may be had to certain classes or grades of incomes, fixed by law according to amount; but the tax upon Incomes of the same class or grade shall be uniform, throughout the United States. Of course the amendment will not be adopted by the present congress After its adoption, it will have to be ratified by the states. It will come in time. Wealth must bear its full share of taxation. GIVEN HYDROPHOBIA BY A MINK. IT Is now proposed to create a civl pension list. Men who have beeo employed by the government for i long term of years and who have be come decrepit and unfitted for busi ness are to be retired and pensioned. If there Is anything that will work the speedy repeal of the civil service law It would come from loading It down with such a provision. Besides, the idea of creating a civil pension list is un-American. Men employee in the government service are better paid in proportion to service rendered than any other class of people and if they are not frugal and lay by enough to support them in their declining years, it is their own fault. Too many people are already depending upon the government for support. REPUBLICAN .papers generally are urging such modifications of the pension laws as will put an end to marrying for pensions and like frauds. Tbe statement of Senator Galllnger relative to special pensions has called out Tery general denunciation of the practice.—Indianapolis Journal. It looks as though It were time to call a halt on the pension business. There are now 975,000 pensioners on the rolls and 200,000 claims for pensions are pending. No one objects to pensioning every worthy veteran wno has a just claim upon the government, but marrying for pensions ought to be prohibited. If it is not, there will be no great reduction in expenditures for pensions within the next thirty years. The young woman who marries an old veteran to secure a widow's pension has no just claim upon the government. "PARTIES have gone up or down," says the Terre Haute Gazette, "as they have stood for the masses, or for a class and special privileges. It is natural that those who would promote special Interests should rally around the party in power and seek to control Its action. Such are now tbe supporters of the Republican administration, and have been successful beyond precedent in accomplishing their object.- The Republican party today is in the condition in which the Federal and Whig parties found themselves immediately before they died. The Issue In 1900 will be similar to that of 1800. Democracy is the people's creed, and it m<iy be confidently expected that the battle In the last year of the present century will be found on the same lines as those of the last year of the eighteenth century, and that the advocates of Jeflersonlanism will be victorious. The Democrat* are prepared for the conflict; 'they comprehend the Issues, and will, clo -their , duty to the msssos The Ismesare grave and maniatakable. The nation will have Woman at St. Paul Dies with all the Symptoms of Rabies. St. Paul, Dec. 15.—Mrs. Louis Roberts died at 6 a. in. yesterday, supposedly from hypdropjiobia. Her sufferings toward the last were intense. She had been ill for the past two weeks, and since last Saturday her decline had been rapid. She was bitten on the night of Sept. 27 by an animal supposed to have been a mink that had infested her hen-coop. Nothing was thought of the bite until two \veeks ago, when she grew ill. Dr. Head pronounced it a case of hydrophobia and his opinion was concurred in by Dr. Hunter and Dr. Sweeney. A post mortem examination will be ordered so as to leave no doubt as to cause of death. Mrs. Roberts lived in this city, but her husband was a lieutenant in the Minneapolis fire department. _ People's Party IVIunapers to IVteet, Cleveland, Dec, 15.—The national committee of the People's party will meet in St. Louis.
