BURGMAN CYCLE CO. He«J«u:i«ers of the Bicycle Messenger Serv'w, 421 MARKET ST. PHONE SO. JOSEPH GILLOTT'S STEEL PENS REVIEW OF TBE CONFERENCE. The fifty-second annual session of the Northern lodiaca conference of the Methodist Episcopal church is a thing of tbe pas', but the occasion will loog be remembered by many of our people, who so hospitably entertained the visiting ministers and in return were able to enjoy many rare letel- ectua.1 and spiritual treats. It had been nearly a score of yearr. since the conference w:i3 held in this city lind probably will be as many more before the other cities of northern Indiana, each anxious forJ)s presence, have been satisfied an.d.jvtpgans- port is ogain able to greet .th'js.- great religious body. ;'•"Exceedingly fortunate was -the conference at tha session just closed in having as its presiding officer so eminent a man as Bishop Warren, who is one of tho foremost of the able men whom the Methodist church has chosen through ite clerical and lay representatives, to wield the executive power of this strong religious organization. Not only does he possess eloquence in a marked degree, that caused him to become tbe pastor of the leading churches in some of the largest cities of the land before his elevation to tbe Blabop'e chair, but he Is endowed with practical traits of mind, and rare judgment of men, that are necessary qualifications for tbe executive office that he holds. Week after week, first In one section of the country and then In another? as Bishop bo Is called upon to decide questions that are of vital Importance to (he church whose Interest he has so much at heart. Ho plainly told tho preachers, whose welfare he had In his hands, before the paper which he had prepared, fixing tbeir field of labor for the coming year was read that it was the good of the church rather than the pleasure of men that should be CDnslderod. An instance is related of Bishop Warren's visit hort) that shows his wisdom, in the way in which he rebuked some men who wanted to mix church and politics. A committee called upon tbe Bishop and asked him not to return their pastor for another year. 1 -What's tbo matter with him?" asked Bishop Warren. This did not bring a definite answer. "Isn't ho a good preacher?" asked the Bishop. There was co fault to find with him in this particular by the committee. "Does he not attend to his work as a pastor?" The committee could name no instance of his failure In this regard. His fit cess In other ways was inquired of by the Bishop and there was no fault found by tbe committee. "What then Is the matter with the man ?" the Bishop at last asked ir desperation. "Well" said one of the committee, "the fact is he was asked to preach a sermon in favor_ of the Prohibition party and wouldn't do it, that's why we don't like him." "If he had done that," satd Bishop Warren, "I certainly would remove Dow th« Nation llaa Been Deapolled by the Democratic Vongrrnt. The question of appropriations, as the New York Sun stated tbe other day, turns wholly upon the condition PRESIDENT, of the treasury and tbe people at the Vioi PinMmiMT time the appropriations were made, and the character of those appropriations with reference to national safety and pnyructiveness. Even in a time of great depression an appropriation by which the productive poiver of the people would be clearly and qnickly increased might be held excusable by>the most economical. But when the number and salaries of' taxeaters are largely increased at a time when the resources of taxpayers are at the lowest, no words of condemnation can be too sharp. It is in this aspect that the wanton wastefulness of the last democratic congress is most conspicuous and offensive. Appropriations were no larger, but on the whole smaller, for the protection of American citizens at home by the nrmy, for tbeir protection on the consts and the seas by the navy, for their protection in foreign conn- tries by the diplomatic and consular service, and for i.heir protection by the courts. IJut the -salaries embraced in the sundry civil bill were enormously increased, while the payment of pensions to loyal veterans was greatly reduced. Poverty might serve as an excuse for putting off or paring down pensions payments if the aggregate appropriations had been correspond!uglv reduced. Economy in expenses for tbo nation's defense might l/e excused if the army of taxoaters had not bccircn- largcd, and enabled to swallow many millions more of tbe public revenue. But when public defense is iieg-lectcd, and loyal veterans are stinted and scrimped if not robbed, it is simply infamous Lliat the army o! taxeaters in civil service should be increased and more lavishly fed. This is done, moreover, in a time of great national embarrassment. • The treasury is empty, and the future of the Dation has been mortg-ag-cd more than S102,000,000 in only about one year to meet the deficit. The people suffer from great depression of industries, and every dollar they now pay takes a larger share of tbeir earnings or profits than 81.00 took four years ago. The diifercnccs in aggregate of appropriations, about which democratic leaders make such a clatter, are too contemptible for consideration in view of the enormous differences in the condition of the treasury, the people and the industry and business of the country. It is no exaggeration to say tbat appropriations of $1,000,000,000 this year will take from the people a greater share of tbeir earnings and profits than appropriations of Sl,- r >00,000,000 would have taken in 1891, when the last republican congress adjourned. In every true sense, the congress of 1604-Oj has actually increased tbe expenditures by at least $500,000,000'*' in proportion to the ability to pay, over those required by the last republican congress. The official statements disagree, as usual, but even the democratic calculation admits an aggregate of appropriations slightly larger than that'of 1SOO-01, as reckoned by the official estimates of the clerks. In order to swell the latter, lemocratic -calculation includes the entire amount of money vFhlch lies at management 1 ia the history Times.

Moore, who, as the able editor of that staunch Methodist organ, the Western Christian Advocate, IB known throughout the land, and Dr. Kynett. who hag spent more than a quarter of a century lu the cause cf church exteiilon. These with the mary'able minister* of . the conference served to make its session an Intellectual feast to our people Irre- speotlTe of denomination. An Ohio Firm Kvmly en Sn;>:>:,v .-111 S»:-£i The decay of college oratory and essay writing is evc-n more inexcusable than we had supposed, says the New York Post. .It is, of course, unreasonable to expect students whose first duty is to athletics to do high-grade literary work in the intervals of training 1 , but.it is exactly to meet the wants of "busy students'' and of the mar. who. "as tjic payable in future years under the'fl.p- ; victim propriations oi 1SOO-OJ, bnt carefully avoids doing' the same thing 1 in estimating the appropriations by the congress of 189-1-05. H the same method . were pursued for both years, as repub- ; lican leaders have shown, the appropriations by the congress of 1SO-1-95 would be greater by many millions than the highest democratic estimate of appropriations by the congress of , 1800-01. Or if the amount actually appropriated for payment within the fiscal year be taken in both cases, which is the more accurate mode of reckoning 1 , the congress which has just adjourned, even on the democratic estimates, has surpassed in expenditure that of 1SOO-91. But the difference is insignificant either way, when it is remembered that out of an overflowing 1 treasury. republicans appropriated about 51,000,000,000, while out of a treasury bankrupt and borrowing 1 the . democrats expended about 81,000.000,000. One other fact is commonly overlooked. The kind of taxes imposed makes a tremendous difference in the burdens which the people have to bear. The democratic congress has jr.st appropriated about 51,000,000,000, of which about $200,000,000 must be paid directly by tbe people in excess of former taxes of the same nature, namely, about 890,000,000 on sugar, Sf>0,000,000 or more according 1 to democratic estimates on incomes, and 540,000,000 or of circumstance" is forced to perform literary labors for which he has neither time nor adaptability" that an Ohio firm has been founded and is now in business. A recent circular of theirs is before us in which they make clear that ''original orations'' are within the reach of the humblest football player. These ir.nge in price from shrce to fifteen dollars, according to "style, length, nature of su'ijcct, etc.," jind "no money is required in advance." High-school orations naturally come cheaper, while "political speeches" can be had for from ten to thirty dollars, •which we should say was nigh for the goods, and "lectures" range from ten to fifty dollors, which seems to us a doubtful bargain. "Sermons," are certainty dirt cheap at fifty cents to twent3 - -five dollars, but the intending purchaser should note that no guarantee of originality accompanies "low-priced sermons." The advertisers justly observe that "honest, conscientious work is the greatest of advertise- - , ,,,,,, »ents,"'and point with pride to the j will probably find 1 growth of their business from "a mere- j nue4 r ^°^ l1 f^ f "f^" ly local institution to the limits of the English-speaking world" as a proof of the severe integrity and scrupulous good faith with which they have carried on the career of cheating. bcttcr it will be for o-.ir -English cousins, for the American people can only cniv-r.yjic 1 a fixed amount, and it is obvious that an-increase of importation of English poods is bound to diminish American production. At any rate British trade is booming 1 , while that of the United States shows little sign of improvement. As indicating the change that has been wrought later is the report of Mr. Tai>-y, the United States consul at Belfast, who snys that since the passage of the Wilson-Gorman act the trade pf that place, which had shrunk«toalmost nothing, shows marked signs of improvement. Included in the report is the following extract from a report of the Belfast board of trade: "Since tl?-= pass- ago of the new tariff law in the United States business'hns improved and the dcmnnd is now equnl to what it was at- any time in the past five years. It is not generally 1 known that England's commerce with O. r ).000,000 people under the stars and stripes amounts to quite as much ns her trade with the 3G.S,000.- 000 under the British flag. America is. therefore,, the best friend of English commerce." This tolls a story which will be easily understood by American workinjr- ' mc-n and business men.—Albany Jour- i nal. I CURRENT COMMENT.

Cut the republican congress raised as much and even more money by taxes on imports, which were paid to a great ex- Lent by foreign manufacturers and importers, ^"ot only has the taxeating class been greatly increased, and its plunder of the people, but tbe people Lhemselvcs are compelled to pay about 20 per cent, of the aggregate expenses which were paid under republican administrations by duties on goods brought hither for sale.—X.

It appears that a surplus of mora than 82,000,000 a month under Presi-;. dent Harrison has been changed to a| deficit of 84,000,000 a month under- President Cleveland. During President -Harrison's term the average annual re-i duction of the public debt was S53,000,-f 000.
