Secretarj-of A[rriculture~"VVork-- ^ Secretary of Agriculture, Wilson, is doing something, and it is to be hoped that what he is doing will bring ten and a hundred fold results.i The three lines of investigation that he is working on are dairying, beet sugar and hog cholera. He believes Iowa, Illinois . and other Western States will soon become great sugar States and he purposes next year to send out from 12,000 to 14,000 pounds of the finest sugar beet seed that can be secured in Europe. .He will at the same time conduct experiments in producing good seed in this country so that our beet growers will not be compelled to import their seed every year as they now do. He has carefully preserved about five pounds of seed that has been developed through a series of years in this coun- —development-until he-secures-aa-high heredity seed as they have in Germany. In connection with the beet sugar industry, Secretary Wilson will try to en courage a higher and_more-extensive —dovelopmenMn dairyingr the sugar beet has been proved to be an excellent food for the dairy cattle, as none of the nitrogenous matter is taken out. In Germany it is regarded as valuable for feeding as the beets are before they are ground and the saccharine matler is extracted. Wherever the sugar beet is grown, the Secretary hopes to see a greater development in dairying, and great as has been the development of this industry in recent years, h'e regards it as still in its infancy, as last year was the first time we had a surplus of butter over home consumption. The Secretary is reported as saying in regard to butter making: If we are to secure the world's mar: ket It is necessary for us to study what the world wants. The English people buy $65,000,000 worth of butter every year and the United States last year exported about $600,000 worth, or less than one per cent of what England bought. We can make butter "for _ England, but we must study_the__Eng=- lish taste if we do so. We can't expect to make them buy our butter if Jt does not suit their taste. We must study how to get our butter to them .fresh. Our butter makers in Iowa work their butter once for shipment to New York and the Bacteria which gives butter its flavor in the two chiys of transit gives it the proper flavor by the time it reaches that city. To tend our butter to England requires from six to ten days and we propose lomake experiments that will enable us to determine - what condition the butter should be in when it reaches England. These are email questions perhaps but they,will determine thequeation of our Belling American butter in England and securing a good share of that $65,000,000 which she pays for butter. - The English do not relish salt butter, but prefer it fresh and free from salt. We must meet that taste 1 in our butter, but salt has been looked upon as the only preservative for long transit. The depaitment will^Hiake experiments ia the use of hermetically sealed cans. We believe that \ve cau send butter to England in hermetically sealed packages so that it will be as fresh when opened as when it leaves the dairy. We shall also make experiments with high grade creamery butter, shipped in refrigerator cars to New York, and then transferred to refrigerator steamboats, what is the value of tbat of *liij?»ei»t. In other words, we propose to tak the same care in shipping America* batter to Eoglsnd that we have taken to get American fruit there, In good condition, and then we propose to le the butter producers of this country know what methods of shipment prom isethe best results in making a marke for their butter in England. We havi sent so much stale butter and oleomar garine to Europe that it has destroyed the market for American butter. Eng land buys butter from Dem ark, and Germany, and Jersey. We can mak butter for England if we will only ex erclse some care in getting It to her in proper-condition— Thi8"~departmen intends to spend some of its money in finding a way to do this. In regard to the hog cholera the Sec retary says that Iowa alone lost 915, 000,000 worth of hogs last year. He has noticed that the disease is least fa tal in the dairy district. He is having experiments made with antitoxin as preventative of hog cholera, and he;is carrying these three great experiments along together because they are closelj allied with the farmer's best sourcea o: income ! __TJie_gugar beetZwill givela valuable~cfbp to taklrthe place of '"corn and wheat. The dairy has one of the largest of the world's markets open to it, and the American hog is one of the greatest sources of income to be pro tected from the ravage of the cholera There is no reason why the Depart ment of Agriculture should not be much more effective for the farmer than it has been and Secretary Wilson starts out as though he is the man to get more good out of this Department than we have been getting out of it heretofore. Humphrey Bills Pnss Senate. The Humphrey street railway bills giving away franchises for fifty years passed the State Senate by a vote of twenty-nine to sixteen. The STAN- it carr~lnform~T;h6 people of this Senatorial district that its State Senator, J. W-. Templeton voted against this outrageous scheme The .bills have now gone to the House and it is to be hoped that they will be killed there and that our representa lives, Messrs. Dinneen, Hurray And Johnson will vote against them. The STANDARD has expressed itseli against these bills in its columns anc in Saturday's Tribune the STANDARD says of these bills: We are not in favor\>f the Humphrey bills, because . they, are corporation measures, drawn in the interests of t powerful street railway magnate, giv ing a monopoly of time and privilege at the expense of municipal independence. Home control, exercised locally is in accordance with the spirit of the principles of self-government, for which-our-fathers-contended;—The Humphrey-bills-tend-to—destroy "local municipal control and delegate- it to strangers. This is asking strangers to regulate your own household. They destroy home-rule and-farm-out-munl- gQtg^g-t^-^ ordinary country citizen cannot conceive of what, save money used wrongfully, puts it into the heads of men .to defy civic self-respect and honor by thus defiantly bartering away n city's home rights. The country people look upon many of our lawmakers as men with an itching palm for pelf, and the only way they can account for such outrageous conduct, is by considering the entire transaction . a legislative holdup, in which the victim is the city*. This is our estimate of the bills just passed by the Senate. If these bills pass the House, there is one more chance against them and that is the veto of the Governor. Greek and Turk at \Yar. The war between the Greeks and the Turks is on. It began with the insurrection In the island of-Crete. The Christians of that island rebelled against the exactions of the Turk. The Cretens wanted to be annexed to Greece -and-the Greeks took a hand in : the-affair In favor of the Cretans. The Turks, of course, took exception to this and sent troops and war ships to the island of Crete, Then we behold the wonderful spectacle of the Christian powers—England, Germany, Austria, France, etc.—using their men of war against the Christian Cretans and in defense of the infidel Turk. This was-the first chapter of the present outbreak. ' While this was going on in Crete, the army of Greece and the army of Turkey were gathering on the frontier between Greece and Turkey. Saturday, the "irregulars," as they are called, who are Greek subjects of Turkey and live on Turkish Boil, banded themselves together and attacked the Turkish outpost. Not a man of these "irregulars" was dressed in the uniform of the Grecian army. This, brought on a general battle, The Turk was diplomatic enough to refuse to declare war, but he declares that war has broken out. He thus hopes to throw the responsibility of the war on Greece. He does this because he knows that-the power that takes the first aggressive aiep is held responsible by the powers of Europe. Thus Turkey holds Greece responsible for the uprisiug of the "irregulars." Ic may be that Greece winked at this Irregular warfare, but the Government of Greece cannot be held responsible for the breaking forth of the disaffeo- tiuu awoug Turkish subjects. first step in th!« fan**** hfts watched with Interest by Christian peoplfl everywhere, because the enlightened world i« getting nick of the unspeakable Turk arid his defiance of humanity. Of course, the Turk is wily; he wants the powers to hold Greece responsible for the outbreak of war. The Turkish ruler says that he will withdraw his troops from the frontier if Greece will recall her troops from Crete. This Is a proposition that the Cretans and Christians everywhere would reject, because the civilized world sympathize with Greece in the part she took In defense of tbs~f1ght of the straggling and -oppressed Cretans. What effect the present trouble between Greece and Turkey will have on Europe remains to be seen. According to an understanding among the nations when an outbreak concerns none but the two nations concerned, the others abstain from taking part, but allow the combatants to fight it out. Whether in this case the nations will keep hands off, or whether they can, is a question which time alone will determine. All the European powers are more or less interested inlthlBl struggle. '""The^synF pathy of the world Is witfr-GrWce"Tind should Greece hold the Impetuous Turk in check long enough to stir up the Christians in the different parts of the Turkish dominion to revolt, the red torch of war may be lit all over. South and Central Europe. Greece.ls not so well equipped for war as is Turkey, but she has many things in her favor; she believes she is fighting the battles for Christendom, and her troops are full of ancestral spirit. The Thermopyla of her forefathers has not lost its stimulating incentive. If Greece can hold out long enough, jeaulousies of the other European powers will disturb the "balance of power" and there may be a general pitching in but such a contingency is in the future ' the Turkish Empire may be wiped out of existence. The Restoration, of Prosperity. Free-Trade has always been downed in this country whenever there haa been a fair fight between it anfl Protection. The Free-Traders know this full well, und for that reason' they resort, whenever possible, to underhand methods to propagate their pet tt'tory. As soon as they were fairly bonten last November, they began, wi-.i raucu shrewdness and subtlety.to lay the foundatlons-f or future prestige by pretending to believe that Protectionists had predicted that prosperity like that of 189i'and 1892 would follow immediately upon the election of Mr. McKinley. • It was the old Free-Trade trick of setting up a man of straw that they might knock him-down again— a game whichrhag proved only toor~suc- cessful to the Free-Traders in the past. Now that such prosperity as that of the days of the McKinley law has not immediately-resulted, the Free-Traders ^^ from whleh Ureeee wonld emergs the gainer. For Greece is not making war upon the powers. It has clearly been forced into this struggle and It fsr acting upon the defensive. Hence there is no danger ot a blockade or other coercive measures on the part of the powers. What action the powero may take, it Is also Impossible to forsee. It ia evident the concert was not able to prevent hostilities. Great Britain and France have acted the part of pol« trooris. Germany Is suspected of having urged the Turks into hostilities. What part Russia may be playing in this desperate game is wrapped in mystery. That vast and powerful empire never lets its policy be known until it is ready to strike, and then It strikes with promptness and vigor and usually accomplishes its purpose.' That It wants Constantinople is well known, but whether it deems this the favorable occasion for seizing It remains to be seen. So far as this country is concerned, its sympathies are with Greece, and It should do all that it can legally and without entangling Itself to aid the brave little kingdom,—The world owes nothing to the Turk but a long series of persecutions, barbarities and hideous cruelties. It owes everything to Greece in the way of literature, the arts, and all the advances of civilization. The people of Europe, whatever position their sovereigns may take,will sympathize with Greece in this struggle, and so will the people of the United States. It will have the good will and good wishes of all. won!4 all flock to «rra» Against their oppressors, tbs Tnrka. So far, nothing of this has occurred, and little Greece Is left aione at the mercy of thu fury of the Turks. ;How long this will or can* continue, time seems alone able to tell. THE Canton Keglster in speaking of what ia a good Republican, closes Its editorial as follows: In brief this conclusion is reached: A good Republican is one who votes the Republican ticket. The man who votes the Republl- can ticket ftt oue election, a mongrel ticket at another, and s6 'on, cannot be reckoned a • substantial Republican force. With such a record he soon becomes an isolated factor—a political nonenity. It is gratifying to know that alleged Republicans of this character are every day becoming 1 fewer in the city of Canton. By experience they are coming to know that Republicans elected on Republican tickets make as good If not eminently better officers than alleged Republicans elected on a Citizens or Peoples ticket. Cleveland as n Success. Congressman Hitt, one of the ablest men iu either Branch of Congress, when asked if he didn't regard ex-President Cleveland a success replied: , I cannot see where he is a success He reminds me of Ingersoll's description of Hayes' administration, which, of the Protectionists have not come true. No -Protectionist claimed that great prosperity would immediately follow. Every Protectionist knew that no measure of prosperity equal to that of 18'Jl and 1892 could come while the anti-American .Wilson— Gorman law was still in existence. What they did claim was that the assurance of a return to the system of Protection in the near future would put an 6nd to further 'disaster and distress, would jive stability to whatever-business had been saved from the destructive power of partial Free-Trade, and would restore confidence; and that the actual restoration of Protection would, In due time and at no distant day, bring back* such prosperity as we had in .1891 and 1892 under the McKinley law. Everything they claimed as the immediate result of the election of Major McKiney has come true—and more, aa every trade report since. November has proved. And that their promises for .he-future will be-as-surely-iulfilled^ the revival already felt in business is abundant evidence. American Economist. bo~Baid, went in oy one vote aud went out unanimously. Only yesterday a Missouri Democrat claimed that he was glad of one result of the election- thai it wiped Cleveland out, and the Democratic side burst into applause. Cleveland pronounced the tariff, of which he was the mover, to be a fraud and a failure. His revenue measures resulted in a monthly deficit and a huge running into debt. 'He raked inio the government services, with an unholy haste, under both Manning and 'Carlisle, the rag-tag-and-bob-tall of his party, and then threw over that refuse the mantle of civil service rules, consequently we have a large element of disgraceful appointees. The rules of examination were a sham. Those who passed the examination never heard any more about it, as a general rule. _I cannot, therefore, see what Cleveland did but to use his first"term' to disturb business, and make it worse in his second term. Our efficient revenue went to pieces,and he became the first borrower after the war of sums of-money which he "knew" not~how~To~ pay. THE ratest'report"from Cuba IB that Spain Is beginning to. withdraw her troops from the Island of Cuba. The report says ten thousand are to go first, and In a short time, thirty thousand will follow. The Cubans say that Spain's financial resources are exhausted and ehe cannot stand the strain any longer, and that she is compelled to give up the contest, while the Spanish say they have conquered the rebellion, and that there are but a few roving bands of guerillas left and a small army can attend to these marauders as well as the army of 180,000 men now In Cuba. If Spain is withdrawing troops from Cuba, there is something back of this move. ' THE death of Mrs. Elizabeth Tilton .recalls .theJBeecherr.Tllton.g.candalt-iDnei: of the most notabie scandals .in our history. Since that famous Beecher trial, Mrs. Tilton has lived in seclusion at the home of her daughter in New York and.Mr. Tilton has lived in retirement in Paris. Theodore Tilton was one of the brightest men of our times. He wan editor of the New York Independent, a polished orator, and, a very able editorial writer. With the close of the Beecher trial, Mr. Tilton lost his ambition and retired from public life and the only thlng'thatis known about him is that he has lived all these years in Paris.

SENATOR HANNA has the sympathy of everybody in the death of his aged mother. She died very unexpectedly from a severe attack of pneumonia. She went to Ashville,N.C.,to visit a kindergarten school in which she was much- 1 interested. She was eighty-four years of age and she leaves three sons and three daughters.

Turkey—Grecian War. la the Turko—Grecian war two con- eiderable battles have been fought; at L'renesa on the Gulf of Arta where the Greeks routed the Turks, and in the Mllouna Pass, where' the Tur,ks are said to have the best of the battle. The fighting here was begun on Saturday and continued all day Sunday^ The report is that the Turks have possession of this pass and the surround- ng heights. At.other places the Greeks lave been suceessf ul. In regard to the war .the Tribune says: Such, in brief, are the beginnings of this Grecian struggle, which has fpr its purpoae.not alone the defense of the rights and liberties of the Greek Chris' 1 - ,lans in Crete aud elsewhere, but the •ecovery of old Grecian territory from •he clutches of the unspeakable Turk, low it will end," no man can forsee t hough if uo other power interferes, It can hardly be questioned that Turkey s more than a match for Greece.

Thus farjn the fight between Greece and Turkey the Turks have had the best it. After three days stubborn fighting the noted Mllouna' Pass, the key to the northern plains of Greece, has been captured by the Turks. Through this pass the Turks may swoop down into the plains of Thessaly. If this is done the little Greek army will be at a disadvantage. The Greeks have won severaj victor ies, but the loss of Milouna Pass is a greater loss than all the gainu that have been-made. This gives the Turk mastery of the entire mountain range on the Macedonian frontier. So far the fortunes of warare against Greece.^The Greeks have displayed heroic courage and they entered^nto the conflict with their ancestral impetuosity, but according to the reports In the papers, their engineering and the management of their field artillery have not been equal to that of thtir enemies. The question will soon come up, will plucky little Greece be left to go down by the Christian nations of Europe? Wilt the bloody Turk be allowed to continue hiaiatrofelties^and ^butcheries in Armenia and in Crete ^without an effective protest from the Christian' powers?
