A FITTING TRIBUTE It wait graceful and fitting act for the Burvivor§ of the famous Forty- sixth regiment of Indiana volunteers to celebrate the anniversary of the battle of Champions Hill by calling upon their old commander, Col T. H. Brlnghurst at his pleasant home In thU city. Be'ng unable, owing to infirmities to moot with them at any other place on the anniversary of the memorable engagement they very properly came to him, They same full of love for the noble man wl o led them to victory, a victory which cost the lives of many of their comrades. The engagement at Cham- plona Hill on May 16, 1863, was the key battle of the Vicksburg campaign. and General Grant in his pffi clal report awarded the honor of the victory to the Indiana troops. The men who thronged the home of Col. Brlnghurgt last night were young and healthy at that time, bat thirty-two years have placed them on the shady side of life. Their hearts, however, are still as young with p atrioti§m»s in the trying times when they fought to preserve the Union. The venerable commander of the Forty-Sixth, Col- Bringhurst, is held in hlghesf regard by all. Although seventy-six years have made hla body feeble, his his mind Is still clear and bis heart true to all that [is good. His career is one of which his friends are proud. As editor of the Journal he supported the cause of the Union whh all the force that, when his presence was needed in the field he showed in action. His patriotism was not that of words alone, but also of deeds. The Journal of whlohCol.Brlnghurst was the founder, takes great pleasure In recording the tribute paid him by his old comrades and hopes that the gallant »oldler »na able editor o.' past dayt may yet live to Bee many repetitions of the occasion of yesterday. THE New York Press recently contained the following forcible article showing that low duties make un- lound money: "The country i» feeling the same inflation in Its import trade, contraction In its export trade, and feverish demand for small bills and coin for Its retail and wages markets, that it has u»ually felt during the early experiments with a low tariff system. If we had now, as we had in 1852, a free system of State banking, the State banks would every where be Issuing "wildcat" notes in millions in response for the active tenders for. (Us- count of what i« called "commercial paper," meaning thereby the notes which country merchants everywhere are willing !;• give for the plethora of Imported goods coming in under the Gorman law If only they can find nearby banks able to supply them with small money of any kind In exchange for their time notes. Hence, simultaneously with the stattments in the official returns of foreign commerce for April that for the first four months of the calendar year our imports of merchandiie exceed our exports by 168.061,551, while for the ten months just passed there Is an increase in imports of 145,242,529 and a decrease in exports of 138,978,949, there come statements beginning with the middle dates in April Indicating that the country banks and banks of the interior cities aro seeking to effect die counts of the notes into which our plethora of imported goods is seeking conversion. This is the old process of inflating our currency through the discount and deposit departments of our banks by thrusting on the country, through low duties on imports, a large excess ot foreign goods." Even Children Make Sacrifices to Help Their Country- Tone-Ing Incident* of Devotion In the Bainlug of Fund* to C»rry on the • War Acalntt China—A Mttlm Ulrl> - J>tter. i Much has been written about the great patriotism of the Japanese and the unbounded loyalty of all classes to the emperor. Instances have been given of fatally wounded soldiers, cheering- their comrades and urging- them on at Ping-Yang and other battle fields. One gets an oven better idea of this all-pervading love of . country 1 and devotion to its ruler from incidents that oocur at home, the random occurrences that are noticed In the Japanese vernacular papers. .One of the most strikr. ing of these displays of patriotism, according to a recent Yokohama dispatch; was recently made by an ignorant little country girl in a letter to her brother, who was with the Second army corps. The girl is fifteen, and is working hard at home to support her parents. She. •uses the simple characters which show that she has had only a common-school education, but the newspaper which reproduces this letter indulges in a long panegyric over the brave Samurai spirit which flashes out in this epistle, and the editor declares that when young girls reveal such noble self-sacrifice arid such ardent patriotism the nation cannot fail in anything it undertakes. The girl's name is Tono, and, as will bo seen .from the following extracts from her letter, she is devoted, heart and soul, to the cause of Japan. She says: "D2AB BROTHER: With your departure we have lost a pillar on whioh we could depend. In my weak way I try to play your part, now that you aro gone, 'and faithfully serve our parents. Do not, therefore, be uneasy about us. Our armies have, I hear, conquered in many places, capturing many guns and much ammunition. \Ve people at home are very glad to hear of this. "We have heard of the gate-opening- at Pina-Yimg. Even little children of three or four years now go about singing that song. People say that Li Hung Chang is so frightened that he longs for peace more than anything else. The Chinese emperor is not less scared. Some of his subjects are trying to dethrone him. These facts show that there is not one loyal heart in China. On the other hand, our great emperor is so benevolent that he takes-much interest in the welfare of tUe families of the soldiers abroad. Indeed, you may never feel anxious about us. March on bravely! Let all the world see how courageous the Japanese are. Don't let yourself be outdone by others in pressing bravely forward. This is the best way to cheer our parents. If you think only of saving your own life, then you will be able to do nothing for our emperor and our country. Yet you must not merely die; if you must fall," let it be in the midst of some heroic e-tploit. Every day and night I pray to the gods about these things. 1 repeat, dear brother, you need not worry about us at home. 1 'Your loving sister, TONO. " The Ping-Yang gate opening, mentioned in this letter, was one of the greatest instances of individual heroism during the war. A private soldier, swam the stream in the face of mus : ketry fire, scaled the wall of the town, and threw open the heavy gates of the city just as the victorious Japanese column reached the place. He was gazetted, made a petty officer and decorated with a medal. The incident was told in a stirring ballad, which the Japanese school children have been fond of singing. Some very touching incidents of devotion have been noted in the gifts of poor people to the war fund, but the school children deserve the first place because self-denial is harder in childhood than • in maturity. A little . district night- school at Shinshiu is attended by forty poor children. Mostof them work hard during N the day. It has been customary to give the master a small present at New Year's. This year he charged his pupils not to make the usual gift, but to devote their money to the war fund. He warned them not to ask their parents for any corn, but to earn themselves whatever they contributed. So the boys twisted silk and made sandals, while the girls spun cotton yarn and wove mats. In this way they aecumu-' lated nearly seven dollars. The master, with tears in his eyes, thanked them for their self-denial and patriotism and sent the story with the money to the war fund. LIGHTING A PIPE IN A WIND. A Sportumiio's Device When Mutche. Failed 'to Do Their Work. "Paddling up Sebec lake last summer in a birch-bark canoe," said a New York sportsman, "the breeze blew so hard and constantly that, try as hard as I might, I could not keep a match ablaze long enough to light my pipe. After a half dozen matches had flared out in the lighting of them, I made some forcible remarks apropos of my failure. " 'Let me show you how to do it,' said my. companion, an old Californian, who was handling the 'bow paddle. 'Hand me a bit of that newspaper sticking out of your pocket.' -He took the piece of paper and crumpled it up into a wad, which he retained in the palm of his hand. Then striking a match, he closed both hands about it to shield it from the wind, after the traditional manner .of .the railroad navvy in lighting his pipe. The flame instantly set the paper- smoldering on top without its breaking into a blaze. He passed the burning wad to me, and It served-as a pipe, lighter equal to a -Jive "coal, the high' breeze-fanning instead of extinguishing' It. It was the. simole invention of a 'practical mindi which served my turn then and afterward, and I commend the device to sportsmen needing tinder for a pipe light or to start a camp fire." DEMOCRATS TO B~LAME. Which Show What HJU C-Qt»d tha Treaiurv UcticlL The democratic administration is beginning- to feel the effects now of its borrowings. The month of April is an Interest paying- month. The interest on the public debt is paid quarterly in January, April, July nnd October. This is the first time that the government has been called upon to pay any such sums of importance on the debt created by .the recent bond issues, and it is feeling- it very seriously just now. The interest payments -which have been of late about 56,000,000 each quarter, have, of course, increased materially with the addition of 8100,000,000 of debt at 5-per cent interest and 862,000,000 at 4 1-2. per cent Curiously this demand for increased funds for interest payment comes just at, B time when .-the administration seems to be trying hard to make a record for the new tariff act During the closing days of the last two months the treasury seems to have made a hard struggle to make a good showing for the new law. Expenditures were pinched down to a very low figure. "The average daily expenditures tho year round are over 51,000,000, j-et in the closing ten days of February they averaged only S574,G2J, and on the last day of the month only 521,583. So that the February operations of the treasury made a showing of nearly meeting running expenses In Jlarch another heroic effort was made. Tho expenditures during the closing days of the month averaged only SU31,211, and on ' the last day of the month were S-15,700, thus bringing the March expenditures down within SiSO.OOO of the receipts. These temporary efforts to make a showing for the new law seem to havo come to grief. While it was possible to hold things down in tho closing days of the'month, they would bob up again at the beginning of the next month. The "average . expenditures for the closing ten days of February were 8374,021, while those of the iirst ten days of March were 81,235,251. The expenditures for the closing ten days of March averaged 8031,211 per day, while those of the first ten days of April averag-ed SI,578,773. Up to the present time at least, the record of the Wilson law has been one of continued increasing deficiency. During the first half of April the deficiency has amounted to nearly 89.000,000, and during the seven and one-half months since it went into operation the deficiency has amounted to over 850,000,000. To be more accurate about the figures of April, it may be stated that the expenditures up to the close of business on Saturday, April 13, amounted to $19,607,805, while the receipts were only 811,129,051, thus making a deficiency of £8,476,753 in twelve business days. This is apparently about the worst record that the new law has made for itself since it went iatoopera- -tion.. The deficiency in its first month was less than 88,000,000; in tho second, it was a little over $12,000,000; in the third, aboutSO.000,000; in thefourth, between 85,000,000 and 50,000,000; in tho fifth, S5,000,000; in the sixth, less than 83,000,000, and in the last month, less than 81,000,000. And to have it jump up to over 88,000,000 in the first twelve business.days of tho very month which was expected to produce a surplus is something distressing.—Toledo Blade. An Appalling Jlwcord: The eighth mouth of the new tariff law has ended with a record which appalls its best friends. Instead of meeting the promise of "doing what your McKinley law cannot do, produce enough money to meet current expenses," it has produced in its eight months a deficiency of 851,273,460. But that is not. all. The friends of the new law, while it'was in process of construction, were wont to measure its prospective -workings by the McKinley law, which was at that particular moment at its- worst stage.. Tt was quite natural, of course, that tariff receipts during the months preceding the enactment of the now law should be light, for everybody was holding back his importations to get th« benefit of the low rates under the new law. Besides this, the crash of banks, the suspension of business houses, the stoppage of commerce generally, which were coincident with tho first meeting of the Fifty-third congress in August, 3893, must have added to the falling off in treasury receipts. The consequence was that when the Fifty-third congress met in special session and the raid on the tariff was begun, the receipts of the treasury department fell off 25 per cent, and continued at un- precedentedly low rates until the tariff was disposed of. So the period from August, 1893, to May, 1S94, was the worst in many years, so far as receipts of the treasury were concerned, up to that tune.—Chicago Tribune. The CinaJ F_l»e PretennM. The supporters of the W'ilson tariff of late have had much to say concerning an alleged increase in the exports of boots and shoes under the operation of the "bill of sale." There has been an increase in the last few months compared with the record for the last few years, but the present, total falls below the exports before the hard times period began. For the eight months ended with February the total shipments were 437,721 pairs, a gain of 82,000 pairs compared with the same period of the previous fiscal year. 13ut the total for the whole liscal year 1894 was only 647,313, against 745,112 for 1382. the first full year under the operation of the McKinley law. So the re- j:.mainder of this year will have to show h still- larger gains over last year to i reach the total attained under the old ,law before the paralysis of business by }' the attempts at ••tariff-reform." These ; facts indicate that the markets which it is claimed wo are conquering were 'ikissessed before- "tariff reform" went Highest of an in Leavening Power.—Latest U. S. GovH Report Baking Powder PURE into operation, and were lost througn the democratic attempt to capture "the markets of the world."—Troy Times. A FALSE PROPHET. The Uluitroiu Ke-ult or Ll-MUnr to Cleveland. Of late business has seemed to be in a fair way of reviving. The indications of a change for the better were cropping up in all directions, and if they were slight, neverthless all pointed in one direction and that was reassuring. Whether this tendency is to be checked by President Cleveland's action In renewing agitation in the financial world remains to be seen. The fact that the president has taken this Btep for a selfish purpose—in the effort to regain the public confidence he forfeited by a series of unprecedented blunders, invests his proceeding vrith n particularly serious air. He has not hesitated at a time when it seemed that a change for the better was about to take place to interpose something which may prove to be in the nature of a check. His action is going to provoke fierce discussion of the silver question and Is certain to lend to agitation, of a. pronounced character. Whether this sort of thing is calculated to ullay uneasiness in the business world and tend to stimulate trade, every sensible person can decide for himself. If Mr. Cleveland were a safe and trusted financial guide, tho public possibly might be content, for sooner or later the silver question must bo taken up'and disposition made of it. But when \ve recall Mr. Cleveland's stupendous mistakes with the tariff, how can the country repose trust in his financial theories? His tariff views were accepted as those of a true prophet by a vast number of the American people. He pretended to be inspired, and the people believed that his words were words of wisdom. They let him have his way. They severely chided all possessing- enough temerity to suggest that ho was uninformed; that his theories were crude, and that his inexperience would lead the country into sore trouble. What is the result of listening to this false prophet? For the first time since the close of the civil war the country is running into debt For the first time since the youngest generation came upon the earth the republic is unable to meet its current obligations—and this, in a time of profound peace, when all nature is smiling, while everything conducive to human prosperity and happiness abounds and flourishes. The country listened to Mr. Cleveland when he preached tariff reform and he has led it a merry dance in consequence. Now he desires to reform the money question as he reformed tho tariff. Is the country ready to follow this man who hns already cost it so much, or will it wait until that party returns to power, under whose nilo the nation flourished and was not only able to pay its debts, but placed a surplus in the treasury?—Albany Journal. PRESS OPINIONS. tSfThere is room for the suspicion that Cleveland is ambitious to figure in history as the last democratic president—St. Louis Globe-Democrat {STThere is lots of trouble ahead for Postmaster General Wilson. He has to pass on the indorsements for West Virginia postmasterships he made while a member of congress.—National Tribune. Cd?~Mr. Cleveland would do well to remember that Martin Van Buren got go uppish In his ideas that he bought "gold spoons" to eat his soup with, and it did not please the people.—Chicago Inter Ocean. HTEvcry foreign country which has for sale the cheap products of cheap labor rejoiced over the enactment of the democratic tariff because it meant money to them at the expense of the American producers.—Toledo Blade. G3TCal Brice is a great joke. He says his party has a number of men among whom an excellent candidate for president may be selected, but ho mentions only two—Senator David B. Hill and funny little Adlai.—Chicago Tribune. CgThe official figures show that the appropriations made by the last congress exceeded those made by the so- called "billion dollar" congress, and thus the loud claim of ^.-mocratic economy is exploded.—St Louis Globe- Democrat Cgrit will make no difference on what issues the next presidential campaign is to be conducted. The republican party will be found on the right side of any question of government policy that may arise. In this it will simply continue to be consistent —Albany Journal. £5£""Gen. Harrison is discreet, after all. He absolutely refuses to be interviewed on "the silver question," and says when he has anything to say on any political subject he will say it in a speech to the public, and not hi an. interview. Deis wise. The interviewer does sometimes reflect tilings like a cheap German looking-glass. The soberest man would not recognize his own image.—Boston Traveler. ' . £y It is one of the president's chief delights to snub his cabinet officers. His latest effort In this line is the rebuke administered to Secretary Morton becatise of the hitter's temerity _in ejcoressimr. his riews on the financial question, the beef question nnd other public matters. It is the established, rule of the Cleveland cabinet that the members shall suy only what their master bids them, and they are not allowed to give expression to opinions of their own.—Troy Times. CgTThe idea that President Cleveland and Secretary Carlisle aro wise advisers upon "sound currency" and finance is above all things most preposterous. In all the nation's history there has been no such miserable failures along that line. From prosperity they have brought the nation to a condition of poverty and beggary. \Vi.th a republican president and a .republican congress, instead of the experience we have had, the nation to-day- would be, as in the years past, prosperous and great and second to none- upon the globe in its power and influence.—Iowa State Register. THE~SEA~OF MURDER. A Term Sailor* Aro In tho Il»blt of Applying- to th« Baltic. The passage of the North .sea. or Sal- tic ocean—for it is equally well known by both titles—is look-id upon with dread by the navigators who Iwve to- brave its dangers. The sailors of thj North Dermal- Lloyd call it the Sea of Murder, in allusion to the marine disasters with which its history bristles, s:iys tho Boston Transcript. Tho captain of tho liner whose destination is Liverpool or London feels that the perils of his voyage are practically over when ho readies Qneenstown. The commanders of tho sister ships of the Elbe, on the other hand, realize that the- most dangerous part of their jour- nev is yet to come, for .ahead of them, is "the narrow and crowded English, channel and the equally crowded and tempestuous North sea. These unruly waters are open- to the fierce sweep of the wind that is so- dreadful to Europe, that which is from, the northeast. Only those who have experienced these marrow-chilling, pneumonia-breeding blasts can realize their anger and their power. .The Gulf stream, which surges up the channel and around the northern end of the British isles, meets the icy currents- from the Arctic regions. Storms, varied by dense fogs, result from this combination. The east coast of England forms a deadly lee shore for the shipping caught in the prevailing winds. In addition to these natural dangers,, the North sea is crossed and recrosse-A by dozens of steamer "lanes." It is also the seat of the great herring fisheries, with their thousands of smacks and schooners that, lying at anchor here, there and everywhere, are by no. means Die least of the dangers which menace the navigator. Here, too, are hundreds of Scotch and English coasting craft, which stand well to sea t& avoid the dangers of shore lines. And lastly the mouth of the Thames spreads, funnel like, into the North sea, adding- to the total perils with its fleets of incoming and outgoing vessels. E3g~CIeveland and his cabinet would like well to make such a clamor for gold as to make the people forget the blunders of his party in the late congress. Throwing dust in the people's eyes is not likely to blind them to questions pertaining to protection of American labor. The country is not in a mood to run this country in the interest and at the dictation of English bankers,—Chicago Inter Ocean, From LaGrippe.
