KEELEY, the mysterious man of Philadelphia, who has received much notoriety as an Inventor without showing the public that he ever invented anything, has again been heard from. He assures the public that his mysterious invention supposed to be' an outcome of the mythical perpetual motion idea, will soon be given to the world. THE abominable Bwa*t-flbop system has been dealt killing blows by legislation in some of the States, but it yet flourishes in many large cities. A wholesale movement -against the sys- tern in- Baltimore has resulted in thirty-three hundred coatmakerB, all members of the Garment Workers Union, going on a strike, and it is expected that their action will be followed by five thousand trousers and vest makers. The young men of Baltimore who have proved tardy in procuring summer Bulls are likely to suffer under the weight of their winter garments. THE disastrous effect ot Democratic tariff tinkering on the raising of live stock in this country causing d ecrease both in number and valua is very apparent from statistics recently pub- llshed; The New York Frees taking as a text the casting of the unclean spirit into a herd of swine, gives some interesting statements concerning the effect of Democratic legislation on hogs and other live stock: , , .''. •'The report of our Agricultural Department now juet out . com peU ; .-attention to every cause which is >.Boientifi- cally competent to account Jpr' the sudden disappearance of hoga.^ It records that between January 1, f892, and January 1, 1895, the country has lost 8,232,303, or more than one- seventh of all the hogs we enjoyed under the Harrison presidency. The clear proof that devils got into the hogs ia seen in the fact that the hogs that remain arp not worth 80 J much by $75, 925, 228 as were those'that we had only two years ago, viz., on the first day of January, 1893. Allowing .eight 'persons to a family, every family has lost a hog. Very large families have lost a porker weighing, say, 700 pounds, but there is no family so puny as not to have lost a shoat, and even young couples, barely contemplating marriage and betweem whom the nuptial knot is not yet tied, must be counted to have lost a sucking plff. "Sin se January 1, 1S9S, the country has lost 4,979,489 sheep, and the value of the rest has fallen to half the value of our flocks two years ago. Thiy were then worth 1125,909,234, but now only $66,688,767. "Sheep, it ia well known, are sure* looted and never take to the sea except under direct demoniac possession. Yet our sheep have all gone the way of the hogs. Bradatreet's says 'the number of sheep is the smallest in fifteen years and value the lowest on record. 1 . • Our. horned cattle are fewer than they were on January 1, 1892, by 3,287,023. Our horses in 1892 were cot quite eo many as they are • now, but they are worth only half M much now u then. Then they were worth $1,007,593,636. and 730. *80." now only |576,» Itatch Harbor, as a Bettiement,.is-'i creation .of the North 'American Com mercial company.''

Sun, It won its name when the-''Dutch were masters of the whaling trade:' sihe harbor" at Omalaaka to not alwayf^easy .ot entrance, and Is unsafe in » .norther. Dutch Harbor, howevqi;,,is N approachable, and safe at any .'time; 'The Alaska Fur. company made'Its settlement'al Ounalaska more than twenty years ago, and here it tradedTand'.still trades with the natives land, with .the whalers. The successful rival of the company in bidding for .the monopoly of seal catching on the Pribylov islands, the North American Commercial company, established itself a few years ago at Dutch Harbor. The' whalers since that time have divided their trade between the two companies, but Dutch Harbor is, as always, .their main anchor age. When the ice-bound entrance to the Arctic is broken in summer the whalers that have wintered beyond Behring- strait come down, some to go on to San Francisco, others merely to stop at Dutch Harbor. Hero some transship their oil and bone, and all that do not go 'south refit and provision themselves. The unlucky ones do only the latter,' as they have littlo or nothing- to send home. The rival companies keep all things that a whaler needs, and one may. see in July at Dutch Harbor a. dozen whalers, steam and sail, some , dingy little craft with tons of whalebones worth six or seven dollars a pound at 6an Francisco, and all with varied crewa of Norsemen, native Americans, and. above all, Portuguese. The Portuguese whaleman is a legacy from the daya when there was first-rate whaling 1 in the Bay of Biscay and about the Azores. Thero is no hardier race of sailors, and they count by thousands in the whaling trade the world over. It is a popular notion that the fur companies of Alaska and the Aleutian islands deal in seals only, but while the seal trade is perhaps the most iropor- ant, a great number and variety of other skins are bought. The natives bring to Ounalaska and Dutch Harbor in autumn skins of the marten, the Arctic foxes of various names, bears, and other fur-bearinfr creatures, the product of the summer's hunting. Tho whalers also come down with a variety of things besides oil and bone, skies of various kinds, tusks of the walrus, and. arctic curios.' The few visitors to Dutch Harbor at the time of the whalers' visits do a bit of trading with them. Whisky and tobacco are current coin with the whaling- fleet, and anyone that has these .things may obtain the skins and curios of the whalers. Money, of course, is not despised. A naval officer on a recent visit to Dutch Harbor bought for sixty dollars the skin of a white bear and received an oiler of two hundred dollars for it from the furrier that cured the'skin. Those who know the whalers as seiin at Dutch Harbor bring-diverse accounts of them. There is a good deal of poker to be had on board ship, and the whaling mato or captain is not averse to a social evening with the bottle. Dutch Harbor and Ounalaska, ' during the short stay of the whalers, have their g-ay season, and it was at this season that a somewhat lively ball was given at the latter place. There were women present dressed rather out of. the fashion, but looking well and ready to dance with tireless, vim. Champagne was served in abundance, and the even- Ing v/as one of the gayest that the far northwest has ever known. It is the whalers of the Arctic that find in the famous Capt. Mike Healey oi tho revenue cutter Bear the 6ole representative of authority in several hundred thousand square'miles of land and ivatcr. If there is a mutiny aboard a vrhaler, Mike Ecaley is called in to make peace, and whatever the disturbance, aboard ship or ashore, Capt. Mike is the power to which the aggrieved person looks for redress. A • WAGE-EARNERS' REVOLT.' The Real Kcason of the Rebellion Againit Democratic Rule. The results of elections throughout the country show conclusively that there has been no change adverse to republicans or in favor of the democratic party since last November. Here and there dejnocratic apathy or indifference is named as a cause of results;" which are nevertheless simply inexplicable, unless for the apathy itself an adequate cause is found. It is not in accord with experience Jo attribute these results to the bad conduct of officials in certain states or cities. It would be more creditable to the'people if they had shown\jrreater readiness to punish rascality or crime; if the shameful conduct of rulers in New York, Brooklyn, Jersey City and Chicago had* been more swiftly resented and punished \>y respectable voters of tb.8 party thns dishonored; if many men in. other cities and smaller towns, and even in rural districts, had risen up in a body to teach their party that it could not retain decent support anywhere if it made itself the hired, tool of blackmailers and ..criminals .in!,.the most important cities..

'Again, when eon-, gress wis spending months in changing the : tariff;: democrats continually asserted /that. abounding prosperity would.come .with removal of burdens .imposed by republican laws. But the democratic tariff, " when it came, brought no relief, and-again the people saw-they had been cheated. Even then it was asserted that only a littlo more time was needed; that the new law'had not yet manifested its beneficent results. But with every week the people see that its results are not beneficent, and grow more angry because they have been cheated. The practical effect is felt in wages more than, anywhere else. For thirty years men have lied to the voters, saying that the tariff had nothing- to do with wages.' All last year democrats- were asserting that their duties were everywhere high enoug-h to compensate for the difference in wag-es 'between this and other countries. As soon as business settled to the new and more blessed conditions, people were assured, they would get as good wages as ever. Business has been recovering, democrats tell us daily, but the working people dp not get the old wages. Every week's payment brings home to them the fact-thai they have been persistently cheated, and that the democratic policy was not intended to and, in tho nature of thing-s, cannot maintain : the wages formerly paid. That discovery is tho one thing- which affects the minds of the great body of voters, because most of them are wage-earners. They are learning that the sort of business revival for which democratic statesmen look means more severe competition with the labor of other lands; Lhat its coming does not restore wages, aut only makes it more clearly impos- sible'to 'restore them, and that the policy of the democratic party is in its fery nature calculated to grind down the worker by removing the defenses against foreign competition. — N. -Y.

A few short years ago you said tin plate could not be made ia this county. You ridiculed'every plant that was established. You said they were erected for cam- >aig-n'purposes. You said it was all being 1 done for jolitical eileot. You lied about the • matter and de- leived your readers and hearers. You said tin plate was not then made and never would be made in this coun- ry. • . Now what do you think of it? There are now 150 tin plate mills in peration or under construction in the Onited. States. ' And-there are more 58 projected. And now for some figures taken roin democratic records. The ag-gregato output of the mills DOW and soon to be in operation is 30,00 boxes each per annum. This means an ajrgreg-ate output of ,680,000 boxes in all. When the projected mills are com- ileted the total annual output will each 6,420,000 boxes, or enough to upply the home market. That, !M.r. Democrat, is a result of epublican protection. It is a result achieved in spite of .emocratic falsehoods and sneering 1 iredictions of failure. It is a result of legislating in the in- erest of America and Americans. If there were such a thing- as shame n the democratic party it would bang- ts.head at the growth of this infant ndustry.—ToledoJ31ade. FOUND WAN T IN G. Effects of Democratic Bulo in tho lATgm Cities. The fact that the larg-e cities of the country, most of which have heretofore >een democratic, are becoming- repub- icau one after another is interesting •md significant. It will not do to say that these striking- chang-es are accidental, or attribute to different local a/uses. They all have the same mean-, manifestly, and are to be regarded rom the same point of vieiv: The fact _ well understood that the people are aroused upon the subject of municipal misg-bvernmentand the necessity of re- orm in that respect. In all the lar^e ities where the democratic party has had control of affairs, there has been a • .ondition of general corruption and haineful neglect of the public interests. The bosses and the boodlers lare taken possession of the machinery ot fro-eminent and operated it to'their own advantage, regardless of justice, honesty and decency.

The record of the republican party for capacity and integrity hi ttte management of public business Is one that fully justifies this view. It has -uniformly administered such trusts in successful way, carefully R-unrding- against the abuses that havo/lnYarla- bly attended democratic rule,'The idea of ignoring politics and adopting th« non-pej-tisan method of eradicating municipal evils is one that has failed as often as it has been tried, and tho people arc not disposed to waste time and energy in further experirnente «f that kind. They recognize the fact that parties are indispensable, and that practical and substantial results cannot be achieved without such instrumentalities, for the assimilation and concentration of the forces which carry elections and execute policies and purposes. The democratic party has been fully tested in this relation and found to be a disappointment and a calamity. That is why an opportunity is uou-'being- given to the republican party to redeem the larp-e cities from- their besetting- political disorders and substitute clean and correct government for that which is extravagant, dishonest, and in every way deplora- ble.—st. Louis Globe-Democrat. THE INCOME TAX MUDDLE. Everybody All i»t St>» Over th« Democratic MonHtroNlty. The action of the United States supreme court on the income tax qucs- r tion promises to create no end of a muddle.. Collectors and taxpayers alike seem to be all at sea, not knowing 1 just what is to be done or is ex• pected under the law as now interpreted. The law certainly fails 'to meet one- of the principal objects of itspopulistic fr.imers,'for, in the words of Chauncey M. Depew, it "exempts the man who collects rent and ta*es the man who pays rent." In other particulars it is a paradox and a fraud. The objections to it are very forcibly put bv Hon. J. Edward Simmons, president of the Fourth national bank of New York and a lifelong- and prominent democrat. In an interview with a Mail and Express reporter ho said: ••It is an outrageous t:ix, and ono to which I have been bitterly opposed ever since it was first mooted. I ura ;\ democrat, but I have no hesitation ia saylnj; that Incomo taxation is a violation of every principle of <,-;inooratlo theory and tradition. It wasa^rLveipal issue in the presidential canvass or JB08. Tbo democratic platform of that year squarely demanded repeal of too income tax as an odious and, inquisitorial schema of direct taxation. Afatn in 187i tbo sumo demand was made in tbo democratic-platform. And yet if there was ever a time when such direct taxation was ju.-jtiflablo it was then when .tho nation was staegurins under its war burdens. "Samuel J. Tildcn came into national prominence largely throuRh his contention that tho income tax was unconstitutional, and his personal suits to Bring that contention to iinal adjudication. That tho democratic party should bo made tho sponsor for such outrageous class taxation in a time of peace, when there was no. treasury demand for it, is what no democrat can understand. Personally, I never entertained a doubt that the tax was unconstitutional, and that tho august tribunal which was to pass upon it would so declare. It had not occurred to 'mo that the lino of clcavaco between the judces for and apalnst Hs constitutionality was according to political bias. It seems Incomprehensible to mo that any Judge of tlernocratic antecedents should httvo declared It constitutional. "I havo not had time to study out the complications of Its assessment and collection. Tho exemption of Incomo from realty and government bonds will mix matters terribly, no doubt, but I havo not yet seen just where It will land us. I do know, however, that It is tho costliest tax that ever was invented, and its enactment is an outrage upon democratic principle and precedents," This is the opinion of a successful business man and of a firm believer in democratic principles. It shows how utterly the democratic party has sacrificed consistency and fairness by enact- in? the income tax law.— Troy Times THE BABY WOUUDNT CRY. JHow Edl»on Secured tho Fhonoitraphle Hocord of HIi Jflmt I»orn'» Woe. Here is a story they tell over the teacups in Orange, N. J., where Edison lives: The phonograph came to the Edison laboratory and the .first baby to the Edison home about the same time, and when the baby was old enougfh to say -Goo-goo" and pull the great inventor's hair in a most disrespectful manner, the phonograph was near enough perfection to capture the baby talk for preservation among-. Hie family archives. So Mr. Edison filled up several rolls with these pretty inarticulatioru and laid them carefully away- lint this was not sufficient. Tho most picturesque thing about the baby's utterances was its crying, and the record of this its fond father deje»» mined to secure. How it would entertain him in his old age, he tuonght. to start the phonograph a-goin^ and haar again the baby wails of his first born. ' So one afternoon Mr. Eason tore himself from his work and climbed tho big hill leading to his house. He went in a great hurry, • for he is a man who grudges every working moment from his labor. A workman followed at his heels carrying the only phonograph that at that time had been sufficiently completed to accomplish really good results. Beaching- home and the nursery Mr. Edison started the phonograph and brought the baby in front of it Bat the baby didn't cry. Mr. Edison tumbled the younster. about, and rumpled its hair, and did all sorts of things, hot still the baby didn't cry. Then he made dreadful faces, but th« laboratory -went Mrl 'Edison In » unpleasant frame of mind,. for tho baby's untimely good humor cost Urn . mn hoar of work. Th« phonograph wm» •lio taken baok. . . But he did not glv* It op. Th« M»t afternoon he went homo again, and. th» phonograph with him. But rf tb* b»by was good natured the day before, this time it was absolutely cherubfe. There wu nothing at all that it* father could do that did not make th» baby laugh. Even the phonograph itself, with ita tiny, whirring wheel*, the baby thought was meant for Ite special entertainment, and gurgled joyously. So back to work the inventor went again, with a temper positively ruffled. The neit day and tho neit he tried It, but all to no purpose. Tho baby would not cry, even when waked suddenly from sleep. But to baffle Edison is . only to inflame his determination, which, by th» way, is one of ttie> secrets of his success. So at length, after much, thought, he made a mighty resolve. It took a vast amount of determination, on his part to screw himself up to the point of committing the awful decd r but he succeeded at last, ami one morning, when he knew his wife was. down town, he went quietly home with the ph'onograph and stole into the- nursery where the baby greeted him. with customary glee. Starting the machine Mr. Edison ordered the'nurse to leave the room. Then he took the baby on his knee and bared its chubby little leg. lie took the tender fle&h between his thumb and finger, clenched his toetlx, shut his- eyes tight and made ready to—yes, actually to'pinch the baby's leg. But just at this fateful moment the- nurse peeped through the door, and perceiving the horrid plot flounced in, and rescued the baby in the nick of time. Mr. Edison breathed a mighty sigh of relief as he gathered up the phonograph and went back to the laboratory. He then gave up the project of phonographing the baby's crying. But not long afterward he accomplished His purpose after all, and quita- •unexpectedly, too. As soon, as the- baby was old enough to "take notice," its doting mother took it down to thfl; laboratory one sunny day, and when, the big machinery was started a-roaring, the baby screwed up its face, ' opened its mouth and emitted a seriea of woeful screams that made Mr. Edison leap to his feet. "Stop the machinery and start the phonograph!" he shouted, and the record of his baby's.erying was then and there accomplished.—N. Y. Herald, •A PoropelUn Boiler. A tubular boiler 1800 years old has. been discovered at Pompeii. It is made of sheet metal, probably copper, in tho shape of a large amphora, or two- handled jar, with a hollow space, running half way up the center of the jar. in this space was placed a cylindrical fire-box resting on five firebars, which are tubes three-quarters of an inch in diameter, connecting with tho water space.
