YES, that was a pow'ful explosion •f pent up indignation. Several suspender buttons were found on Sixth itreet yesterday evening. THE Dlngley deficit continues to f row. The Dlngley deficit promises to exceed In one year the aggregate deficit of the Wilson tariff In three years, But the country will get along all right unless the gold con- jpirators should, for the purpose of Intimidating congress, make another raid on the gold ressrve. Then would •onue another bond sale. THE Dlngley tariff law does not benefit .the people engaged In agricultural pursuits to any extent whatever. Today farmers are getting better prices for some kinds of grain. The man with ordinary common •ense knows that the extraordinary foreign demand is the real cause for the Increase In prices of farxn pro- iucts. Had there been no change in the tariff, prices o? farm products would have ruledjthe same as now. Had Bryan been-elected wheat, corn, oats, •eef and pork would have commanded the same price that now prevails. Judging from the cut in wages oiade by the protected cotton manufacturers, the Dlngley tariff law has •ot even benefitted manufacturers, AN OPEN LETTER Tirom Mias Sachner, of Co! O, to Ailing Women.

' Colorado Senator Speaks at New England Society Celebration. GOME DAEK HUfTS OF THE PUTUEE, HAS anybody heard any complaints from the hundreds of thousands of railroad men who voted tor McKln toy and sound monej last year? The railroad earnings, which have stead lly Increased since the revival of prosperity immediately following the election of J896v continue to grow, the November earnings of 104 railroads showing an increase of 21 per cent over November of the preceding year.—Journal. And to what i« the increase In earnings attributable? Would not the •ame foreign demand for our surplus products have existed, had Bryan instead of McKlnley been elected? Would not the crop conditions have been tbe same? While railroad earnings have increased abnormally, Is it tiue that the wages of railway em ployes have oeen correspondingly increased? Natural conditions are most favorable for the railroads. Hx> act of the McKlnley administration, however, brought them about. The foreigners who own most of the •took of our railway will harvest rich dividends and they will be paid in gold. Their good fortune Is not due to McKioleyism. It is due to the favors of nature and a great demand abroad for what we have to sell. Predictions Verified. The lifew York World very seriously asks: What are the people thinking and talking about in connection with national politics? "Are they not," it inquires, "dis- cnasing the Dinjjtey tariff, which strangles commerce while robbing the consumers? Are they not laughing at the comical dilemma of the Republicans, who got Into power by bowling against the Cleveland deficit and bare ever since been increasing' it?

Dec. 23.—At the dinner o£ the Xe\v England society here last night Senator Wolcott, of Colorado, was the principal speaker. He began with a humorous reference to the resignation with which the exiles from New England bore their banishment, and then spoke of an alleged desire of the Can- adiar government to acquire the state Of llaine and portions of New Hampshire and Vermont in exchange for territory in western Canada. Serious thought on the subject of a possible cession of a part of New England brought "a realization of what it would mean to this people to face the possibility of changing by the shadow of a. hair the control of these states or the sacrifice of a chip of its native granite, however, barren. • " * Not only does this sentiment pervade the land, but we seem at times to be developing an inclination to invite some other country to differ with us in order that we may demonstrate our united aggressiveness. Senator Seems to See Trouble Ahead. "In certain directions our domestic differences are crystalizing and not disintegrating. For more than a generation -we have waited for the day when parties would divide solely on national Questions, and when the old sectional issues growing out of the war and.the race problem would be buried. The time came. The parties met on a broad economic question, and lo! we emerge from the contest threatened with another bitter sectional division. The far west, largely the child of the east and pulsing, with its blood, joins~hands with the south. The new alignment is not only debtor against creditor, class against class, but in a land pervaded with equal devotion to what its people believe in as the truest welfare of the whole country, great majorities in one section face equally great majorities in another. .Silver .Sentiment in tlie \Vest. "The west is-not decadent; its views are of men virile, industrious and genuine, and their beliefs are honest. They would scorn any sort of evasion of an obligation. They are patriotic men. * ' * They are Americans; to a.pro- portion greater—far greater—than in the east, native-born American citizens. The views they cherish are held with practical unanimity. So universal a feeling as that which pervades .the great west cannot all be \vrong. You cannot dispose of a conviction held by millions of intelligent people by calling it a craze, and some day you may find it worth your xvhile to look for the truth where it i* usually hidden—some •i-here between extremes REFtKCTS OX TtAIlLWAT MA Hints That the Ahilito to Make Money >'ot Menu KiiiniK-inl Wisdom. "Somehow it is not readily recognized in the west that ability to reorganize western railroad and swell its stock and securities several millions every time-i is foreclosed necessarily indicates an equal ability to determine the wises economic policy for the farmer who lives along the right of way. And men who would no more dream of entrusting their banker with the duty o£ formulating their financial views than the> would of entrusting the man of whom they bought a shotgun with the command of the armies of their country are naturally inclined to fear -that in this part of the moral vineyard there is tendency to assume that the possesion of great wealth means necessarily the possession of great wisdom. "It is only a few years ago that England was 'uncommon proud' of that west which her sons had so largely peopled, and her resources, lavishly ventured, has done so much to develop. Perhaps they are only sttpersensitive westerners who fancy they see in certain quarters a subtle change—an inclination to criticise, an inability to find much to commend, and a tendency to look still further to the eastward for methods and ideals fit to follow. I hope it is all a_raistake. .Coi}tenirnp£i_cann«; The China and Cut'Glass That we are giving away make splendid CHRISTMAS PRESENTS.
