JOURNAL MELVIN, STEELE JOHNSON. EDITORS AND PROPRIETORS. SATURDAY MORNING, JUNE 4, 1898. "THE PEOPLE~PAYTTrrFRE1GHT~ Some of tho amendments offered in the Senate to the war revenue bill are so palpably impracticable t h a t the gi;ivc Senators may be charged with satiiical intentions. H may be piesumecl that Senator Gorman had not forgotten t h e fate of tho income tax feature of tariff act of 1894, when he proposed to exempt from a small tax incomes less than $250,000 per year. The Senators, however, appeared to favor carrying the joke to tho f u l l extent, and searched a r o u n d u n t i l they found a place this special tax saddle fitted. The Sugar Trust and the Standard Oil Company are tho victims, and it is clear that they are a b u n d a n t l y able to contribute the tax demanded of them. But that is not the question. Will they, or should they? A prpcedent, not four years old, will give them encouragement to test the matter, and a sense of inato justice peculiar to our people will not commend the singling- out of a very few among the many rich corporations to pay special taxes. All incomes should be taxed or none. Voluntary contributions to the war fund from scores of "protected" industries, which have enjoyed government bounty for many years, would Jbe tho proper caper about this time. They'll not d o i t , however,-but instead xvill h u n t out fresh opportunities to enrich themselves by the gov ernment's favoritism. And all the while the people will go on "paying the freight," whether in the guise of stamp'act or interest on hundreds of millions of dollars in bonds. AS GOOD AS GOLD. "What is the matter with printing- press money, anyhow? Has not the government's p r i n t i n g presses and those of the American Bank Noto Company turned out hundreds of millions of dollars in paper money as good as the world ever saw? Just to fit the present emergency it is argued by those who favor bonds, that the greenbacks would have nothing back of them but a promise to pay. And what, pray you, have the bonds, more tjian thai? Bonds may be issued on which to borrow money--almost entirely printing- press money, some of which will be the despised greenbacks issued years ago. There may be a shade of difference between the demand note of the government and its promise to pay at twenty year's time, w i t h interest; but the preference should bo for the paper promise that can bo quickest turned into coined money of the country. The most strenuous opponents of the proposed issue of greenbacks are the national banks, with their printing-press, circulation backed with printing-press bonds, which have not a dollar of coined gold reserved to redeem them,"while the greenbacks have more than one- fourth their volume ready to redeem them in gold. There is nothing the matter with the printing-press money . of tlie United States, whether it be ' greenbacks, treasury notes, national bank notes, silver certificates, or gold certificates. They are all alike and all as good as gold. »« ·· EDITORIAL NOTES. At many places Decoration Day was more generally -observed than ever.before. Some three decades ago a few faithful 'and patriotic souls conceived the idea of a day devoted ·- to the decorating of soldiers' graves. The idea struck fire in responsive ' souls, and now it has spread u n t i l it . calls milllions to its aid. Flowers are dedicated to uses in nearly every town and hamlet in the land and eager eyes watch the bursting of bud, lest it be not blow.n in time. Tender hands (lay the blossoms on the silent breasts of the braye, and so the spirit of patriotism marches - on! In sweetest brotherhood, again We have scattered the buds of May; Let the flowers fall over one anil al|, Kor we kiiow- no blue nor gray. Col. Theodore Roosevelt's rough riders, one of the best equipped regiments in the world, will be on - Cuban soil in a day or two, ready ' f or the fray. The troopers are composed of hardy mountaineers and athletes, and the most of them are expert sharp-shooters, and all of them have the dash o£ f r o n t i e r " fighters. They have adopted this "-, "yell:" Rough' tough! We're the stuff! · We're the scrappers; never get enough! k W-h-o-o-e-e! Any Spanish c o l u m n trying to "head off" Roosevelt's men is yoing to have'a lively time of it. Dewey's nationality Las been under discussion the past week, various claims being made that he is an Irishman, a Dutchman and a Jew. It is pretty well settled that the hero of Manila, while of English descent, ·Las lost trace of it in the two hundred years his ancestry have lived "' in America. He is an American by , birth and education, and typifies in' Lis fighting qualities the stock from which he sprang. - On Tuesday the Secretary oE Wai- authorized the Governor of Nebraska to raise a regiment of infantry for the service of the government under the President's call for 75,000 additional volunteers. The Governor .. had previously requested authority -. to,do this and the regiment he pro-"' posed to . tender th© government is --being recruited with the expecta- .- tion,that Mr. Bryan will bo its eol- ;" onel.

From tho n u m b e r of centenarians reported, observes the Rochester Democrat, the term of h u m a n life is being extended. Improved living, sanitation, surgery and knowledge of medicine are giving good vitality and sound constitutions a chance.

There is a popular demand for an economical ana satisfactory system of purchasing \vlvje!;- on easy payments. Our relations to the wheel m a n u f a c t u r e r s have enabled us to take this step in the interest of our public. Our conferences with the manufacturers whose wheels we handle in our stores have resulted in their consenting to allow us to distribute A LIMITED N U M B E R of their wheels on the system that has proven so satisfactory in the Wanamaker Century and History Clubs. We are accordingly prepared to deliver to members of the Wanamaker Wheel Club these wheels, on the following terms-1100 HUMBERS, 1898 MODEL, AT $f3 ON MONTHLY PAYMENTS OF $10 2200 CONTINENTALS, 1898 MODEL, AT $40 ON MONTHLY PAYMENTS OF $5 300 MONARCHS, 1898 MODEL, AT $50 ON MONTHLY PAYMENTS OF $8.33 The extra charges heretofore established for brake and mudguards will be continued in effect. An initial fee of 85 will be required to cover book-keeping and other expenses of the club. On payment of this amount, and on the furnishing of satisfactory references as conditions of membership, the wheel will be immediately delivered, the monthly payments to begin thirty days after enrolling in club. The number of wheels is definitely and irrevocably fixed as above and cannot be increased. The wheels are not prepared especially for this Club, but are the regular S100 Humbers, $50 Continentals and 860 Monarchs heretofore on sale by us, and are covered by our strong guarantee in addition to that given by the manufacturer.
