Talking of hard times, says tho Inter-Ocean, a business man who Is not a politician said yesterday: "If Grover Cleveland will have the nerve to say to this Congress that the present tariff must not be interfered with he would become Umous for all time and a boom In business would set In in twenty-four hours." We believe that no truer statement than this hae been made on the subject, In fact, tho conditions are all right for an active and prosperous business If only the business world could be assured of the pormancy of tho present tariff laws. The outlook is pood In every direction. It is doubtful If ever before as much idle money waa in sight aa there ia now- shown in tho statements of the banks of the country, to say nothing of tho unusual amount hidden away In our safety deposit vaults. In every case the owners of this mcnoy would like to see It earning something. They would like to see it actively employed, if only they could be aasurred that nothing- was going- to bo done to upset their business calculations. The proposed changes In the laws afTooting Industrial interests acd the probable results are the uncertain quantities that deter conservative men from taking the risks of business or eocourag- in£ others to do so, Thoro should undoubtedly bo a considerable revival In business If tho present Congroes would adjourn without taking any definite action on tho Wilson bill; for the reason that before U could meet again the people would have had tho opportunity of expressing >n opinion of such legislation, and almost every one believes that when that opportunity comes they will express their views In euch unmistakable terms and by such an overwhelming vote that oven the present Congress will be compelled to take hood. Some business men are becoming anxious to have something settled,and are growing weary of an agitation that apparently does no good and much evil, but in a matter of such great Importance it well becomes them to be patient and let It be rightly settled or else not settled at all. If such a tariff bill as the one under consideration should become a law It would probably be '97 or '98 before any radical change In It could bo made, and wo should have three or four years of depression not paralleled since the war. Let us bear the present uncertainty for a few months rather than load ourselves with burdens which, once assumed, will bear us down for years.

One of the Historic Dwarfs of tha Last Century. In Fplte of fllii nimlnutlvo Size H« W»« Neither W«nlt Nor I'uny—One of the Mo»t (iiillntit of Courtier* Mini Flatterer!. Joseph Bormvhiski, usually called Count JJonnvliiski, «'iis » dainty little mite of :i man born a century and a half ago in Polish Russia. He was vi-ry tiny, vi-ry sweet-tempered and channinfr. and tho beauties of his mind and person were known and admired in nearly every court in Europe, for lie was n great traveler and lived to be nearly one hundred years old. Tie was just two years older than the French dwarf, Hebe, and, lilce the latter, writes Mary Shears Roberts in St. Nicholas, he measured about eight Inches at the time of his birth. Notwithstanding Joseph's diminutive size he was neither weak nor puny; ho learned to talk and to walk at the Kame u£e as other infants, and his mother declared that in his infancy lie gave her as little trouble as any of her six children. lie had five brothers, some short and some tall, and one sister, Anastasia. She was very, very tiuy; so short, indeed, that she could .stand erect under the little count's arm. £lio was a perfect model of symmetry and beauty, with a, lively, chcorfut temper and a kind, benevolent heart. When Joseph was scarcely eight years old, his father died, leaving the widow and six children very poorly provided for. The little count, who was often called "Joujou" (toy) in the early days, wont to live with a rich lady, a friend of his mother's, lie remained with this kind benefactress for four years, and although he measured on!v twenty-one inches at this time, his progress in his various studies was not in proportion to his stature. He was remarkably intelligent, and so amiable and vivacious that lie became a general favorite with everybody. On a certain Countess Tlumieska, lie made so stronpf an impression that she was extremely desirous to have Joujou attached to her household. His first benefactress was not willing to privehim up, but after a good deal of talking and pleading, Joujou went lo reside with GEOICOE W. HOI.JIAN of Rochester, who waa declared a candidate for congress, announces that he is not and will not be a candidate. FOB THE SOUTH. . Sun. 7.84 A. M. for Tern HaaM, •Ullf except Onndaj.

There is a valuable object lesson for the people of Indianapolis In the sale of the Lafayette natural gas plant. Some time since the owners of that Institution raised the same cry that has been raised here as to the great cost of securing an additional. § u pply of pas, and on that ground secured an ordinance for an advance ol rates of heating stoves from f 10 50 to $14 per annum and cooking stoves from f 18 to $24, just as the companies, here se cured exemption from taxation last year under the same plea. By reason of these advanced rates tley have been able;to«ell out lor $650,000, or more than ' the Consumers' trust company of this city is assessed at. Wo do not know at what rate the Lafayette gas company was assessed, but we will risk the assertion that the assessment was not one-half of the selling price. Now the owners aftur pocketing enormous profile 'while they held the property, sell out (or a lump »um which will make them wealthy, if they were hot »o before.—Indlanapo- lii Sentinel. AN OLD ESGIU.VINO OF TU.K DWARF, the countess. Six months after, when this lady started on a tour through France and Germany, she resolved to mako Joseph the companion of her travels. At Vienna, the little count, who was now just fifteen years old and twenty-five inches tall, was presented to Maria Theresa, empress-queen of Austria, At this time Austria and Prussia were at war, and one day, when some courtiers complimented the empress on a recent Austrian victory, she turned to Joseph, who happened to be in the room, and asked him wliat ho thought of the Prussian monarch. "Madam," replied he, "I have not the honor to know him; but were I in his place, instead of waging a useless war against you I would come to Vienna and pay my respuets to you dooming it a thousand times more glo rioiifi to paiii 3'our esteem ;ind friendship than to obtain Mie most complete victories over your troops." This long speech from such a small person pleased the empress so highly that she caught the manikin np beside her. and covered him with caresses. While ho was still at the Austrian court the empress desired him to perform a Polish dance. This heoxeeutcd with such grace that Maria Theresa, us usual, was delighted. Horuwlasld's little, hand being accidentally in that of the empress, sho noticed that he was apparently looking at a very beautiful diamond ring which she wore. "Do you think the ring- pretty?" sho inquired. "I beg your majesty's pardon," replied Boruwlaski, "it is not the ring I am looking at, but tlic hand, which I beseech your permission to kiss," and he raised it to his lips. This speech pleased her majesty so much that if tho ring had not been entirely too large it would have been the immediate reward of tho. courtly reply. At this moment a very charming little girl, about five years old, entered tho apartment. Tho empress called tho child to her side, and, taking from her baby hand an exquisitely jeweled ring, placed it on tho tipy finger of tho count, where it fitted to perfection. Boruwlaski was delighted, but the lit- tlo girl was perhaps not so well pleased. Poor child! she was then Princess Marie Antoinette, daughter of Marin, Theresa; but afterward sho became tho beautiful and unfortunate queen of Franco, and perished upon tho scaffold many years before the death of Boruw- laski. The little count preserved tho jewel as long ns lie lived, Soma Catholic Statistic*. The Catholic directory for 1894 states the number of archbishops as 17, of bishops as 71, of priests 9,717, of whom 7,231 are secular clergymen; of churches 8,729, of chapels and stations S.704, and universities as 8. The Cath- nUo nomilation. of the archdiocese of New York is given as 800,000. There were in 17W only ::o,000 Catholics in the country; noiv the number is estimated at from 0,000,00(1 to 12,000,000. GRAND DUKE GEORGE. Tlie Czar'i Second Son Sulcl to He » Victim of r<in«iimptTon. Grand Duke (ieorge of Russia, tho second son of the czar, whom his dashing young cousin, Prince (jeorgo of Greece, saved from the knife of the assassin in Japan a couple of years ago, seems likely to succumb to an agency as deadly as the assassin's knife. During the tour of the young princes the grand duke fell ill while on the Red sea, and had to return to Russia. It was at first believed that ho was suffering from incipient typhoid lever caught On board, but tho mainly subsequently proved to be consumption—an affliction hereditary in the Romanoff family.

The grand duke is kiunvn as tin; ".Sailor Prince of Russia," just as his namesake and cousin, Prince ('.corffe, the duke of York, is the "Sailor 1'rincc of England." It is said Unit the- two princely cousins prn.-a.tly resemble each other in character and temperament, whence their popularity with high and low in their respective countries. It will stay there tm labor gets It out," This is the rock on whicli Mr. Reed believes tho democratic party of the north will go to pieces, while the wage loss will be the "great damage to tho republic," Is he not right? Has not, in fact, the "destruction" of the party already begun? In this city, a few weeks ago, a democratic candidate for congress was beaten in one of the prcat strongholds of the party, and in another the democratic nominee was saved from defeat solely because of his popularity. The town elections all over the state show enormous republican gains, while the avalanche in Pennsylvania is one of the most remarkable revolutions in our entire political history. The tariff question and the wage question will have been decided long before the congressional elections of next November take place. What working-man will vote for the candidate of the party whose policy has reduced his weekly earnings? There are as many democratic capitalists as there are republican ones. Is it likely that they will support a party which has impaired tho value of their holdings and property interests? The southern free traders, as Mr. Reed points out, are in power. In ;Si)D the democratic party of tho north was nearly destroyed on the question of secession and free trade. Secession is dead; but free trade still lives, and its advocates arc in the saddle.—X. Y. Recorder. OUTLOOK OF THE TARIFF. DEMOCRATIC DISINTEGRATION. Ex-Speaker R«ed'> Opinion of the BflicU of tho Wilson Hill. In tho opinion of ex-Speaker Reed tlio passage of the Wilson bill in ita present form by tho senate will lead to tho destruction of the democratic party in the north, and "with its destruction will como great damage to the republic," "I should like," he adds, "to see tho party wreck itaelf, but I feel that patriotism should take the place of party cow." The purblind democratic leaders and their organs will ridicule these views of Mr. Reed, and attribute them to what they will characterize as his "intense partisanship;" but before the year is out his prediction may prove to be an accomplished fact The democratic party has been one year in control of the government, and a more destructive year to every substantial interest this generation has not witnessed. In the lampaign of 189'J democracy promised iho country that its advent to power would be followed by a great wave of prosperity. The people believed it, md gavo it tho opportunity to redeem its pledges. They see now that the hopes they entertained of better times have proved to be delusions, that tho "chang-o" they voted for has been a change for tho worse, and that there is no prospect whatever of improvement until the old industrial conditions are restored. Capital foresees that it will have to face tho keenest foreign competition it ever encountered, and labor awaits in fear the inevitable reduction in wages that must follow the coming adjustment of economic conditions. Tho wage question is the cloud that hangs orer the country, Mr. Reed's views on this point are full of interest "There is no way," he says, "to put money in circulation except through wages paid. Issuing government bonds doesn't make circulation. The laborers must earn it and spend it, and that will made it Hush. The statisticians Bay the 20,000,000 laboring people in this country earn, when they are at work, from $30,000,000 to $40,000,000 a day. The Wilson tariff bill will cut these wages from 10 to 25 per cent The 10 per cent, cut on ,?40,000.000 will be n loss of J4.000.000 a day to laboring men, or. II,"iOO,000,000 in a year. A 25 per cent, cut in wages will take fS.UOO,- 000,000 out of circulation. Cue-third of our labor is idle now. This idleness is costing us probaby $10,000,000 a day. I do not wonder that the times are hard and that money is tight There is money enough in the banks. They urn a-iuttcdi.but labor is not retting it. What the Wilson Jllll Will Do Tor Commerce and InJtiKLry. It is certain that the Wilson bill will pass the senate and become a law. There will be amendments and modifications, but, they will not change the main features. It will still remain ;•. low-tarii? measure, paralyzing our industries and ruining our workingmen. It will become a law and it will remain in operation at least three years; for it is impossible that the republicans shall regain control of the presidency, tho house and the senate before 1S07— and control of all three will be necessary in order to change it. It thus becomes a matter of paramount consideration to ascertain what its effects will be. We are now in the midst of a season of depression and idleness, caused by the triumph of the democratic party at the November election of 1893, The democracy was pledged to a policy of tariff smashing. What naturally resulted? First, that all industries which would tie directly affected by the tariff were cheeked. No one concerned would be foolish enough to buy raw material, pay to have it worked up into the finished product, and accumulate a stock, with the prospect that he would lose money by the operation. Tho wise thing to do was to work off the stock already on hand, and manufacture no more than would supply the immediate demand. This was the first great cause of the depression. To curtail manufacturing means, of course, to throw a large number of men out of employment This destroyed or curtailed their means of buying, and thus reduced the sales of merchants in all lines. In a thousand ways the pros peet of a tariff change caused a taking- in of sails by merchants and others, and the present stagnation is.thc result Second, it is always vrue that whei any change of existing conditions can bo foreseen by those engaged in pro- ductiou or distribution, there is an iur mediate effort to accommodate themselves to tho new conditions. It no\\ being reasonably certain what may b< expectod*in a general way. from tho Wilson bill, an adjustment is going on. Producers' understand that they must hereafter compete with foreign pro ducers on less favorable terms; that they must produce cheaply enough to meet tho products manufactured with cheaper labor, llence there is a steady reduction of wages going on. Strikes are powerless, for there aro from two to a dozen men ready to take any position that is offered. This reduction is not alone in what are known as "protected industries," but in all lines; for, as the Blade has always said, a reduction of wages in one great division of labor means a reduction all along the line, until finally every man who works for wages or salary shares in the reduction. As soon as tho Wilson bill becomes a law, everybody will know tot what to expect, and this process will go on steadily until wages have fallen to a level commensurate with tho protection afforded by the Wilson bill. This reduction, now in progress, will go on Awarded Highest Honors-World's Fair. D»PRICFS Baking Powder The only Pure Cr««m of Tutu Powder.—No Ammonit; No fJ'iVl.

The price of labor will approximate more nearly the European standard, the ability of the people to buy will thus be curtailed, with the result that our merchants »nd retailers generally will experience chronically dull times. And how about the farmers? They will be injured by thu depression just as much as anybody else. They will find their market wiU not increase but rather decrease. They will find,, that the diminution of the buying- capacity of the masses will injure them just as much us it will anybody else.
