It is not what you were §ont to Washington for. It IB no what you are paid for. There are jus three things that are absolutely eseen tlal to the existence of tho Democratic party just now, and they aro these: 1. That a tarill reform bill bo passed. 2. That a satisfactory tariff reform bill be passed. 8. That a satisfactory tariff reform bill be passed speedily. We cannot answer for the remainder of the country, but we do know the sentiment of the people of. Indiana, and we know/that if a satisfactory tariff reform bill is notspeodily passed the Democratic party might as well go out Of politics in thin State.

Tho democratic members of the Finance Committee had the matter in their control and the fluctuations of the market Indicated that some one was giving "tlpj"for speculative purposes. AN Indianapolis gas suit has just been decided. One of the gas com panies there attempted to charge double rates because the consumer was a poor man and had only one atove. a cook stove. The attempt to collect heater rates, also, for the same stove was condemned by the lower court and judgment wae rendered against tho gas company. Tho gas company appealed as usuil and continues to extort the illegal rate.

Dun esteemed contemporary, the Indianapolis 'Sentinel, has backed down from its "agricultural Implement" position and now maintains a calm and guarded silence. The Sentinel invited the Journal to engage in a friendly discussion and should not have retreated so unoermonlously. However, tho Sentinel may have discovered that it was In error.

Tho United States snb-treasurv. at Wall 1873, were disastrously rjeaien in tne congressional election of 1S74, won the presidential o»nvnss of 1870, have had several ups and downs since, and their star seems to be again in the ascendant. Frequently since the, beg-inning ol the war tho outlook for the democracy was dark, indeed, and in one or two canvasses it appeared to be blotted out almost as signally and thoroughly as was tho host of Sennacherib before the wrath of tho Lord, but it carried the country, nevertheless, in 1884 and 1802. While sensible persons have stopped writing the obituaries of great political organizations, it is clear now 19 all sagacious democrats that the immediate outlook for their party is exceed ing-ly dark The responsibilities which absolute power has brought to their party they see have been coupled with clntie* \vnieb. tho party has been unable to meet, and this condition of things imposes penalties which cannot be evaded. Tho democracy is not a unit on any ffreat question of the day. Factional lines of cleavage are drawn in various directions, until it seems to some of its members that the party for tho time being 1 is destinad to fly into fragments. All over the country tho tide is unmistakably turning in favor of the republicans. In every state which voted three anil a half months affo the republicans made immense pains. If a president and congress had been chosen at that time there would have been an overwhelming- republican triumph. Every special election for congressmen which has been held since then, including the ono which took place iu Pennsylvania a few days af?o, revealed a striking growth in republican strength. All the omens and aug-u- rics portend that the immediate political future is to be put in tho keeping of the republican party. — St. Louis Globe- Democrat.

It is as plain as •he sun at noonday that this condition s due to the success of the democratic •Jarty on a free trade platform and to he war it is making on tho economic >olicy under which the country has njoyed the greatest prosperity it has nnd Nassau streets, makes, and has made it a practice for years, of ex- chang-ing- minor coin for United States money of large denomination, and it has many regular customers who arc so served. There are n. numberof curious thinp-s about cents as they come to the sub- treasury. In the first place, they are quite extensively counterfeited. This may seem strange, as the profit in a counterfeit cent is necessarily small. It is true, however, nevertheless, and is supposed to be the work of Italians, who, more larg-oly than any other nationality, seem to favor the imitation of our minor and subsidiary coin. The Brooklyn and New Jersey ferry companies, the elevated railroads of both New York and Brooklyn and the various slot machine companies aro i reprulav customers for the exchange of cents for other money at the sub-treasury. At times they turn in enormous quantities, the slot companies alone ranging- between one hundred and twenty-five dollars and seven hundred dollars a day. As might be expected, all sorts of I oddities in the way of coin come in I with the quantity taken in the nin- ! chines. In addition to the counterfeits | are scores of "not one cents" of war f times, metal discs and foreign copper, Austrian money predominating. Ast.hu copper cent is simply a token, no matter what its condition is, it is redeemed at par if it can in any way be identified as United States money. The popularity of the slot machines a year or so apo brought about a curious condition of affairs in the country. This was nothing short of A "cent famine.'' The headquarters of the company is in New York, and all the a;rents sent their cents here for redemption, which drained the country of its supply and overstocked the minor coin vaults of the sub-treasury hero with cents,—N.

One of the most remarkable of the American Indian lire legends is that of the Utes. They tell of a time in the remote past when all the world, and the Utes in particular, were without fire and shivering with cold. One day a spark fell from Heaven and was caught in the beak of a talking bird, an operation which, of course, smotherc ' the lire. The bird was one of the migratory species, and to make good the loss, told an old chief what lire was, and where it could be obtained. The place the bird told of was far to the south of the Ute country, but it was decided to station braves at tho distance of "one run" apart, and in this way attempt to bring a lighted torch from the land of the "fire peo- Tho emissary sent on this important mission provided himself with an indestructible torch in the shape of a headdress made of eagle plumes. He then stationed his men at the distance of one run apart along the entire route from the Ute country to tho "land of fire." The Ute found the fire people dancing around a sacred Dame, which is sued from a rook, and he joined them in their rites. Presently, as he dancad, he dipped his plumes in the flame, and immediately he started, his head all ablaze, towards Utelaud. He ran with the swiftness of a deer to where the first sentinel was concealed, and delivered to him the precious charge. The first sentinel did as the emissary had done, delivering it to the next in line, and in this manner tho Utes cuino by the blessed boon of fire. Uut this is only part of this curious aboriginal tale. The Utes laid the torch at the roots of a mighty tree,and a wind sprang up and carried the fire into tho forest, where it raged until all the trees in those parts were destroyed. Finally, after repeatedly appealing to the god Tawatz, a rain came and ex languished the fire, all except a single ember, which a turtle sat upon and saved. To this day the turtle is popularly known as the "Ute's fire bird," and the Utes themselves are the most careful people in the world in the handling of fire, seeming to be in constant dread lest it should get beyond their control. Now a word in regard to so-called "Fire-worshipers," the modern Parsees. In spite of all the state ments to the contrary, the Parsco is not a fire- worshiper. True, fire plays a large purt in his religious ceremonials, but to say that he worships that element does him a great injustice. The educated Parsee will declare that to him fire is the emblem of the power of God. Kire and light of every sort is regarded with reverence by the 1'arsee, and they always pray with the face turned to the si: p n or somo other source of light, but when that is said all is said, for they worship but one (!od, and worship Him as devoutly as Christians do the God of the Bible.—St. Louis Republic. IN THE TURKISH HAREM. The Fosition »nd Sentlmont of tho Clr- CUflfllHIl Sl!IV<». Far from dreading their sale, the girls of Circassia look forward to it a> the great opportunity of their lives. They go to seek it as a. conscious jewel might start in search of a costly setting. They show no more reluctance than Esther manifested when Mordecai delivered her over as one of the fair young- virgins gathered from far and near to adorn the palace of Ahasu- criis. Indeed, the history of Esther re veals the motives which probably animate each of the many maidens of Circassia who to this day re-enact that old biblical story. Each believes that it is she who may find grace and favor in the royal crown, and thus control at will the rise or fall of the royal scepter, liut oven if not chosen by royalty, those who purchase the beautiful damsels of Circassia arc the wealthy titled; and not the slightest social degradation is attached to their position, even when taken to harems wherein a Turkish wife may be installed as head of the household. The common dependence of all the inmates of a harem upon the favor of a lord who may at any time elevate the Cir- cassian slave to tlie position of a lady fosters a spirit of equality—of pure, practical democracy, that wonld be inconceivable under any other circumstances, and in our southern slave relation to nominal mistress was totally undreamed of. As a Turliisn lady explained to an astonished English visitor: "A slave may become a lady any day, and in treating her as one beforehand we take off very much of the awkwardness which would else ensue."
