Sensational dispatches inspired by financial ghouls whose interests are best sub- served by demoralized markets, have lately been all too common. There is really 'nothing alarming in the present financial situation. There are failures, of course, but, as has been pointed out, there has not been a time in years when the financial embarrassments were of a less startling : nature. With very few exceptions the concerns that are forced to suspend are found to have assets far above their liabil ities, but the recent changes in financial affairs have placed them where their assets are not immediately available, and so to avoid tho possibility of being crowded to the wall many institutions have made voluntary assignment. In other words, business methods that were perfectly safe and sound three months ago, avo now insufficient. Credit was good enough then; but the financial.flurry made bankers conservative auiittioy wan ted cash instead. The uhange was .in the right direction but it was too sudden. Bankers who were willing to let Tom, Dick .and Harry have any amount of uionoj for any kind of wild speculations wont to tlw other extreme and were very grudging of necessary accommodations for legitimate business for awhile. That has pretty well passed. Confidence is being restored, and while tho effects of the shake-up' are still being felt and will be felt for some time, tho financial situation, so far as all legitimate business is concerned,' is steadily, if: slowly, improving, t civil engineer of declared insane. _ OKLAHOMA'S first legislature has adjourned.

In fact, I Was told that on her arrival in Clyde she was to have the machinery and boilers taken out of her and to be enlirely refitted. She is a medium-sized vessel, but broad in the beam and proportion to her length, and, I should judge, a good sea-boat. On this passage, however, the sea was like a mill-pond the whole way across, so there was no opportunity of seeing how she would behave herself in dirty weatker.

One day we stopped at a tavern and drank freely. About half a glass of whiskey was left and Jack took the glass and drank it all. Soon he was merry, skipped, hopped and danced and set us all n a roar of laughter. Jack was drunk. We all agreed, six of us, that we would come to the tavern next day and get Jack drunk again and have sport all day. I called at iny friend's home next morning and went out for Jack. Instead of being as usual on his box he was not to be seen. We looked inside and he was crouched up in a heap. "Come out here," said his master. Jack came out on three legs; his fore paw was placed on the side of his head. Jack had the headache. I knew what was the matler with him. He felt just as I had felt many a morning. Jack was sick and couldn't go, so we waited three days. We then went, and while drinking a glass was provided for Jack. But where was he? Skulking behind the chairs. "Come here, Jack, and drink," said his 'master, holding out a glass to him. Jack retreated, and in a moment was on top of the house. His master went out to call him down but he would not come. He got a cowhide and shook it at him. Jack sat on the ridgepole and refused to obey. His master got a guu and pointed it at him. A monkey is much afraid of a gun. Jack slipped over the backside of the house. His mastor then got two guns, and had one pointed on each side of the house, when the monkey, seeing his bad predicament, at once whipped up the chimney and got down in one of the flues, holding on by his fore paws.

"th. About all the financial vagaries of the time are indorsed, and their enactment into law demanded. The sub-treasury scheme of loaning government money upou farm products at 2 per cent., the Stanford land mortgage - scheme and free silver coinage, with a large inflation of currency, 'wore the measures formally commended. There was a saving element of conservatism in tho convention which unavailing!) tried to make effective protest against these extreme demands. The idea that there could bo any other way to wealth for the farmers than through the circulation of plenty of cheap money was indignantly rejected. The first thing these farmers will do after they get control of congress, as they expect to do in 1892, after they have voted themselves plenty nf money, will be to forbid under heavy penalties nil trading in futures; and then they propose to prohibit alien ownership of lands. Tho railroads will lose all lands they do not actually occupy, and will bo put under strict governmental supervision, aud, if that is not sufficient, will be purchased or confiscated, and owned or ouutroled by the government. Then the taxation problem will be attacked. The tariff will be revised so that one industry will not bo built up at the expense of another, and all duties on the accessaries of life will be removed. Incomes will bo taxed, according to a graded scale, and tho national and state revenues limited "to the necessary 'expenses' of the government."

The Times never forgave Burton for his independence in this matte!-. Even its obituary notice of him had it it a deal of cowardly venom. Somo years ago a facetious newsnape correspondent ventured to inquire whethe Lady Burton had ever read her husband' translation of the "Arabian Nights." Th implication was that if sho had she mustb exceedingly well informed upon certaii matters of which the fair sex general I v or proud to know verry little. To this b'it o iiuestionable humor. Lady Bnrton made prompt and specific answer. She said tha she had not read the work in question anc ;hat she did not wish to read it, as her bus- hand had expressed his preference that she should not. The feeling that Burton was most slmb- uly treated by the British government is low finding vent in expressions of bitter- less. The talk of tho ingratitude of republics is hushed before the example of a monarchy that ennobles and pensions imbecile bastards, and at tho same time blindly and wantonly neglects out of its sturdiest intellects and most diligent servants. When Burton was sent off to the Consulate of. Fernando Po, which is called "the foreign-office grave," he said, with a commingling of bitterness and pride"They want me to die, but I shall not do so!" Burton's favorite beverage come quick, Mag-innis has i>een stabbed We and by was green tea; he never drank anything else while he was traveling. He was an authority on the subject of African fevers, having had years of experience with those malignant nin'adics. His infallible remedy was to administer a bottle of port wine and then sleep off the pffpots. A lady called at one of our banks and presented a check which she wished cashed. _ As she was a perfect stranger to the paying teller, ho said, very politely; "Madam, you will have to bring someone to introduce you before we can cash this check." Drawing herself up quite haughtily, she said, freezingly: "But, I do not wish to know you, sir!" by one of the steerage passengers." all ran hastily forward in the dark a „, the mainmast we found the chief mate holding by the throat the murderer, nhom he had just grappled with as he was going ovar the side. At tho foot of the fore companion was a group of frightened occupants of the steerage, and among them lay the first steward, groaning in agony. A rapid examination disclosed a knife cut nearly ten inches long, which had ripped open the abdomen, and, as the doctor discovered at once, had severed tho lower intestine. A passengoc who had had .some experience in accident cases in a Massachusetts cotton mill assisted me to administer chloroform to tho wounded man, the doctor did what he could to replace the intestines and sew up the wound. The poor steward begged .piteously to ba put out of his misery, and, although an enormous quantity of the antesthetic was used, it was impossible to get him thoroughly under its influence. "Captain Campbell, kneeling by the side of the poor fellow, asked him who had stabbed him, and he identified the man, who had in the meantime been handcuffed ;o a post in the cabin, It seemed that lew minutes before the murderer asked tfaginnis for a light for his pipe and was given one. At 9 o'clock, the hour at which steerage passengers were expected to retire, the steward laid his hand on the nan's shoulder and said: "Now. uiy lad, t is timo to go below." Without a word ;he man drew a clasp-knife and struck at was beaten. The man kept that monkey twelve years but could never persuade him to taste another drop of whisky.

"I looked at the machine in some doubt when suddenly a man stepped out of one of the boxes, or cars, which was coming down.

The steward fell, crying out as he , and his assailant threw his knife into the sea and attempted to follow himself, but was pounced upon by the chief mate, Maginnis died twenty hours after he had been stabbed, and in the afternoon the ship slowed up for an instant in midocean. A scupper was opened in the side of the ship, a^asty command was given and a rude pine box, bearing the remains, was cast overboard. Holes had been bored in the box to sink it, but, so far as I could see, it danced away on the edges of the wave until lost in our woke. There was no religious service or ceremony of any kind, and 1 could not help but contrast the affair with what I had read of the solemnity of a burial at sea. "The murderer was confined on deck in a little cubby, sometimes used ac a hospital. I had several conversations with him and satisfied myself that he was insane. He professed that he thought he was goinj, to be robbed, but it was found he had only fifty cents in his possession. He was the same man of whom my wife had express ed her fear.

"I afterward learned that a man who did no get out of an ascending car at the top floor would be in no danger of being turned upside down at the top of the shaft, because the car always maintains its upright position. This is due to the tact that only the roof of the car is fastened to the cable, so the car always remains bottom downward by its own weight. A lift like this may be economical, as it does away with the need of men to run it but I myself much prefer the safe 'American machine.
