MCKCJT3 PERPETUAL LIGHT. An Anihorlzed Description of tbe Same Herewith Siren. J. B Nlckum, inventor of the new peputual light, is being beseiged with letters and terrains inquiring as to all the merits of his wonderful discovery. He has alao had communications from aSt Louis syndicate and other parties who evidently want to get in on the ground floor. As much has been printed in regard to tbe device that was not authorized by the inventor, the following description of the light was submitted to him today, and verified by him as being correct: "The Nlckum perpetual light is in the form of a globe or sphere of glass, neremetrlcally sealed, air tight. The light is inside the globe and is produced by a compound, the nature of which the inventor will not divulge. Those that have been exhibited show the illumination diffused throughout the globe, Instead ot being in the form of a flime. The coat of manufacture wilt be inconsiderable and the inventor is determined that it will be sold at a price that will place it within tbe reach of everybody. The light will retain its brilliancy so long as the glass globe remains unchanged The globe remains cold, there being ro loss of heat from the interior to the outside. The light is not phosphorescent glow, nor is it produced In a similar manner. Tbe result ia obtained by taking advantage of the ever present surrounding moving matter—air operating upon s properly constructed globe, the interior of which contains matter in cer tain conditions which will not at present be made public. The candle power of the light is not dependent) upon the size of the globe, but upon the substance ana conditions within It." ST. JOSEPH'S HOSPITAL.

There is a young man named Eckels who by some fortunate chance for himself and for the sins of the people of the United States became comptroller of the currency under Cileveland. That made him, ex officio, a great authority on finance, but although he is now out of a job be keeps on annoying the public with his amateur notions. Had he not attracted Mr. Cleveland's notice he would never lave been permitted to bore the public in this fashion, and that is another of tbe many grievances the people have to lav up against the last administration of unfortunate memory. Why doesn't he keep still, like Carlisle? Tbe difficult',- with the finances, according to air." Eckels, in addition to the possibility of a silver victory at the polls, is that the government issues paper money instead of letting the banks issue all thai; sort of currency the country needs. This has teen heard before from others as well as Mr. Eckels, but none of those who put it forth takes the trouble to explain just how the banks would save r.he country from disaster in a crisis where tbe government would fail.

If that were true, it: would only be a stand off between government and bank paper, but ic is not true. Ou four or five occasions during the past 18 years, sinco the government resumed specie payments, tbe banks have suspended payments, adopting clearing bouse receipts or some such device, or none at all, to satisfy both depositors and holders of their bills. Tins, too, while they were carrying considerably less than, one-third of the paper circulation of tbe country. What would they have doue in similar cases bad they been carrying it all,aud required to pay iu gold as the reformers suggest? On tbe other hand, the government has never once suspended.

Republican* Indorsed It and Are Xow rcellne Out Jobs. By its refusal to assist the administration in freeing itself from embarrassments the Democratic minority has alled conspicuous attention to the hypocrisy which was alone responsible for | be indorsement of civil seirvice reform | at the last Eepublican national convention. The rank and file of the Eepnbhc- an party, representing in part the people of the United States, has never been .n thorough sympathy with tbe civil service idea. The Democratic party re- pndiiir.-rl it when it threw Cleveland overboard. The civil service idea has. never been itrong save in Mugwump localities. The life tenure of office is antagonistic to the Democratic doctriue. It has no place in a republican form of government. A majority of delegates in the Republican national convention appreciated this when the hypocritical plank was inserted in their national platform. In order to free the administration from embarrassment, and give, tho commercial boss of their party an opportunity to redeem in part the pledges made when offices were promised for Republican support the Democrats are now asked to assist in so amending the law that ihe hungry patriots may be fed. If the Republican party had the courage of its convictions, it would repeal the entire law. The only way in which its repeal can be secured is to carry out its provisions to the letter, as far as the Democratic minority can i'orce that to be done, and make it as odious to the party as its undemocratic ideas deserve to be. The Republican party in convention assembled, declaring for civil service reform and the Republican bosses, from Hanna to Kerens and from Quay to Leland, parceling out the jobs so those who assisted in corrupting delegates at St. Louis, is a sp<>ctacle -which the Democratic minority i.s determined tbe public shall noT soon forget.— Kansas City Times.

It is difficult to understand the quality of mind which can bring itself to a belief in the superstition that a bill issued by a private corporation, but for whose ultimate redemption the government is responsible, as it is for the re- dumption of bank bills, can be better or more .secure rhan a bill issued directly by the government and redeemed by the 'overnmcut. The faithful worshiper of the ban<c fetich simply looks wise when he is asked to explain this and owlishly remarks that it is something very dreadful for the government to be engaged in the banking business. That the business of issuing bills to be used as currency is not the bunking business is a statement that he will not deny; it just makes him grieve. He will return to his silly objurgation of a government iu the baukinp business at the first opportunity, as if the absurdity of it and his incapacity to justify it had never been called to his attention. There were people,' and they may possibly be found here and there yet-, who grieved because the government did not leave the carriage and delivery of the mails to private enterprise also. The plain truth is that the government is uow engaged in the banking business because of the existence of national banks, of issue, for which it is responsible, aacl whose bills it must redeem in the last resort. If it were to separate itself entirely from these concerns and take to itself the whole function and monopoly of issuing the paper currency of tlie country, it would then indeed "cease to have anything to do with tbe banking business and would confine itself to a legitimate function which every government on earth now performs in one fashion or another, the supply and control of the money which its people use. While it issues any paper bills through the medium of the banks, as it has done ever since onr late war, it will he open to the charge of being engaged iu the banking business.— Detroit Nevrs.
