The attendance at the republican primaries last evening was startling In the interest displayed. Never before have the people been so thorough. Jy aroused. The capture of the democratic primaries put the people on guard, .and the turn-out was retaarka- ble. The rooma selected in a majority Of the wards were too iroall to hold the crowds. la the (election of delegate* to the city convention every one present seeemd to be •trlvlng for fairness, that no complaint ••old b« made by any candidate or or hit frlendi. TH* NOMINEES:. la the firit ward Charles Rlngle. ben is a careful business man and a strict economist. He wa engaged In tho retail business for a number of years »nd later was on thi rO'U for a wholesale touee. Poo: health compelled him to give up thi road and for the last oyear he hai devoted himself to borne work. Foi the last six months he has voluntaril; and without pay kept the books of thi new natural /?as company and DO man could be more prompt to report fo' duty. He is a man the First ward wants in tbe council. In the Second ward Georg Haleh was chosen.. He haa served in tbe Council before and ho wan always in favoi of good business macagemen and economy. He is engaged in the grocery business and is heavy tax payer. William Kelser of the Third ward has aleo been in tho council from tha' largely democratic ward. He is a solid, substantial business man whom everybody respects and honor. J. C. Hadley in the Fourth ward is one of the heavy tax payers of th city. Two or three years ago his firm bought the old Manly furniture factory, employing two or three men and inside of two yearsJSO men were given employment and the institution wasono of the solid business concerns •f Logansport-S; He is a good citizen and an honor to his ward and hie renomlnation by acclamation reflect credit on his constituents. In the Fifth ward Joe Kinney is a popular Pan Han. die passenger conductor. He has saved his surplus earnings anc has built his own home which he delights in. He is scrupulously strict in all his business dealings and will be just as careful of the city's finances. Altogether the ticket is one which the people without regard to party can not but commend and praise, THE STATE BANK TAX, Great objection is bblng made to the scheme to repeal the State bank tax by the business men of the country. The Indianapolis Journal forcibly says on the subject that "No valid reason can be given for the pass- ago of such a measure. It is not only designed to destroy a national currency which can be turned into legal tender when it is not such, but it involves a scheme to s irlnrtle tho masses by the issue of a local money which is not legal tender and which will not pass current outside the State where issued. It would result in the creation of thousands of local banks of issue without tbe guarantee for the redemption of their notes which is essential to the safety of the people who are forced to take them, Under the beet Stato banking laws which can be devised, hundreds of wild oat banks will spring 1 up in every Western and Southern State under the dlrentirn of Bpeo ulators which would fail every time there should be n financial pinch that would send their ..notes back to them for redemption in coin. Manufacturing establishments would have banks of issue and pay their employes In a money which has neither legal- tender quality nor currency outside Ihe immediate locality. For over thirty years no holder of a bank note issued under tbe national banking laws has lost a cent by a bank failure. A generation so accustomed to sound bank paper that the individual never looks at the note which has paid him can have no adequate conception of a banking system under which every note Issued must be carefully -sorutln- zed and which cannot be turned into egal tender money under tho best conditions without cost to the note- holder. The man who, under such a aw, would take State bank notes for his wheat, his labor or bis goods would be compelled by his creditor to pay him legal tender money, which would cost him a premium of from J to 10 per cent. •Thla scheme of the Southern pol- tlolans and speculators has no redeeming feature, and should be e»- itled 'an act to swindle the wage- earner and the small farmer In the nterest of speculators and sharpers.'" THE DEMOCRATS HAVE FIVE MEMBERS OF THE COUNCIL AND WITH THE MAYOR'S VOTE CAN CONTROL THE BODY.—Phwro*. May 6th, 1898. RUSSIA'S AUTOCRAT. Hla Words Are Law, His Prownfl Mean Prison or Death. Alnzltniler li tho HnU Arounil Which Cvurythlnir lu the MiwcoTlt* Kmplr* jlevolve«—Thn Imprc«»U> an of mi American Traveler. Walter Kennoily, in llis strong, and stirring 1 story of Russian life, "In, the Dwellings of Silence" fjives, apropo of n description of a ball at the Winter paliiuo. a concise statement of the unlimited power of the autocrat of tho Russians: At nine o'clock all the pfucsts had assembled in the white room, anc the czar and members of the royai family were announced. It was not strange that hearts should quicken at the announcement, even those of our two Americans, who looked like black crows amid that gilded aviary. Even the staunches* of hearts beats faster when confronted by the powe_ that awes the world. One may analyze it as ho will, ana assure himself that the possessor of it inherited it, or came by it through accident and no merit ol his own, but tlio power is there, stolid, unconquerable and unmoved by one's speculations. Reared under ordinary circumstances, it is hard to imagine that tho czar would have risen above the level of mediocrity. His own country numbers thousands of men who are his superiors in every respect; yet, by virtue of no personal eminence, he is the most powerful individual in the world. If the president of the United States in addition to selecting his cabinet, had the power of appointing all tho members of congress, tho officers oi tho army and the heads of the civil service', It he chose the bishops of an established church; if he enjoyed the undisputed privilege of making- all tho laws and repealing' them at will; if he wero editor-in-chief of all the newspapers and allowed nothing- to go in them which was in any way prejudl- ALEXANDER, CZAR OK KUSSIA. cial to any of his powers; if he wore the head of a church which helped .to forfi-e the chains of slavery upon all the people, and for withdrawing from which one raig-ht bo banished to tho frozen solitudes of Siberia; and if this president could order any American citizen hang-ed for advocating » curtailment of his authority, such a ruler would enjoy no privileges except those possessed by the Romanoff, For the czar prescribes tho religion of his people, controls the utterance of the press, inhibits freedom of speech, holds tbe lives of his subjects in his hands, even sits in judgment on their •unspoken thoughts, and can punish them for violations of tho law which he, or any of his underlings, suspects they intend to commit some time in the future. Verdicts of juries do not impede, nor tho investigations of Courts deter. With an army supported by tho state »t bis back, a church molded to sustain his autocracy, and vast hordes of officeholders dependent upon his pleasure, he can ig-nore juries and a timid public sentiment, muzzle the press, banish those who do not agree with him, and override any principle of justice that he wills. He is absolutely pervasive over half of Asia and half of Europe; he rules wandering Tartars and conquered Poles, furious Cossacks and nomad Kirghiz, Hulg-arians, Czechs, Serbs and thirty other peoples. He is Russia, in short—the hub around which everything revolves. Right or wrong, such power is his. Our Americans had some such feeling when they beheld the portly and impassive man, clad in the uniform of the soldier, who entered the white room. This was the mightiest ruler of the earth, this man who never smiled, whose face seemed to proclaim the hollowness of joy and the vanity of all living. CURRENT COMMENT. ^, Wilson should give ear to the rioters' cry from his own stats of West Virginia,—Toledo Blade. QB-If Messrs. Cleveland and Willis have aught to say before Hawaii proclaims itself a republic let them say it now or forever after hold their peace.— Chicago Tribune. "What is the democratic party?" asks the Chicago Times. "Well, it used to be an organized appetite, but just at present it seems to be a disorganized appetite."—N. Y. Tribune. {3T°Sixty democrats in the house swore by the eternal, being genuine Jacksonians. that they would never vote for the Wilson bill But they did—all but seventeen of them. The same noisy demonstration is now being made by democrats in the senate. The "conservatives," we fear, will be cuckoos in the end.—Cleveland Leader. By Wilson prices for sugar will be at least a cent a pound higher than Me- Kinley prices.

He Will H«vo to Iletlre from Service In a .Few Darn, Admiral Benham has been recognized with general consent us the very man to represent the United States at Bluc- ilelds, in Nioarapua, where the complications with Great Britain have occurred. Hut it now appears likely that he will not be. able to take that part t as his date of enforced retirement frorr the navy will probably come before he- gets there. His ship, the San Francisco, is encumbered with marine growth, and has needed docking and cleaning for some time. Under favorable conditions she could scarcely reach lllueflelds in less than 28 days, and she -Y KKAB ADMIRAL, BKNH.UI, U. S. N. must otop at Trinidad to coal. Now on! April 10 Admiral licnham passes his Ofid anniversary, for he was born on Staten Island on that date in 1832. That is the statute time of retirement. The question thus arises: Docs he continue as commander in chief of the ship and will he, when he reaches Nicarag-ua, continue to exercise command? Or will he surrender his authority to another and become a mere passenger on an American man-of-war? The law officers say there is no roora for questioning on the point. They say it is not the first time such queries have been made, and there are decisions on the subject to convince those who are disposed to argue. An officer retires when his 62d birthday arrives, be he in port or at sea. The govern-. ment is bound to bring- a retired officer home, and that is what is being done with Admiral Benham, although he: need not be brought back until after he is placed on the retired list. If he should reach Nicarag-ua and find the situation there one requiring 1 American intelligence and courage, he must remain an onlooker if the date is April, 11. He must be content to give advice if the then commander is willing 1 to have his counsel, but. he can exercise no authority and play no part in tho performance of the naval force. He will bo a retired officer of the navy from April 10, say the legul authorities. _ ._ OLD PHISON LOCK. Highest of all in Leavening Power.—Latest U. S. Gov't Report Baking Powder PURE A Rtuty Itello of the F»mou» H •Frlnou Now In England. .' The famous old Newgate prison is still in England, but we have a part of it — though a small one— on this side of the briny creek. Tho rusty old lock, now rests in a second-hand lumber rdt 1 opposite the King's county jail, in Raymond street, Brooklyn, This lumber yard, by tho way, is a veritable "Old Curiosity Shop." Its proprietors buy and tear down dilapidated buildings, reselling the refuse for whatever it will bring. Old books, broken chairs, showcases, shelves, safes, weighing scales, coffee-grinders, gas fixtures, desks, tables, tin rooflngi mirrors— almost everything that anybody wants to sell— are bought and re; sold at enormous profit. The completion of the Newgate prison was in 1783. In 1780, while yet in its embryo state, it was fired by the Gordon rioters. Small damage was ^^*l^*B«^^-— done to anything but the woodwork, of which there was little. The prison 1113 years old, and the lock is as old as the prison. . Messrs. Cottrell & Son secured the 1 lock when they bought the fixtures of the famous old inn, "The Abbey," which stands on Fulton'street, in the jusiness part of Brookjyn's crowded shopping district. The lease of the Abbey was just expiring when ,its late proprietor, Mr. Sherlock, died. Mr. Sherlock received the lock direct from England and with it the icy. Both are gigantic. The lock is. about a foot and a half hig-h, one foot ; across and six inches thick. Its clasp ; s a curved iron bar, nine inches in iircumference. The key is h«avy and | of intricate design.. DEMOCRATIC DISASTER. A. Showing at Nothing But Reductl and Deficit*. The democratic party was driven from complete control of this govern ment nearly forty years ago, when i weak president and a traitorous cabinet loft tho country financially pros trated and on the verge of a bloody civil war. It is most remarkable how the financial conditions have repeated themselves after the lapse of so many years. Tho panic years of 1857 and 1858, toward tho end of James Eu ohanan's term, are being duplicated in the beginning of Grover Cleveland's term, at the close of which the domo crats will bo again driven from power. There the similarity cesses. There will not bo a second civil war. The democratic panic years, 18.W t< 1858, eclipsed all previous records o disaster the country bad known. The panic of 1837 was but a zephyr com pared to the democratic cyclone 01 1857. But as the democratic panic o: 1857-8 was to that of 1837, so is the democratic panic of 189S-4 to that o 1857-8. The country has increased in population and magnitude, and the democratic party in numbers and in folly. Hence is the panic greater and the disaster more widespread. If that was cyclone, this is a cataclysm. The indemnity which Germany wrung from France after tho close of tho Franco-German war was five milliards of francs, or one thousand millions at dollars. This is an enormous sum. But it is as nothing compared to the penalty paid by tho American people for placing the democrats in power. It is in the nature of things impossible to make accurate figures on such an amount, but an attempt has been mode by a statistician, Mr. Joseph E. Buchanan, and he has published a series of elaborate tables in a New York paper. These tables fill columns of fine type, and cannot bo reproduced here; but some of his totals are of interest. He gives the number of adult males in ' the United States as 19,000,000; of i these, 0,000,000 are in argrioaltual pur 1 suits, and 10,00,000 are proprietors of various establishments. This leaves 6,000,000 male wage-workers. Of these, 3,303,000, according to Mr. Buchanan, are out of work. Ue gives his figures, sources of information, etc., all carefully classified according to various occupations. He (fives tho wages of the various callings, percentage of loss where wages have been reduced, and amount of loss where men are out of work. Ho thus figures up the loss oJ wages to workingmen during tho seven months beginning with September, 1893, at the enormous sum of nearly a billion of dollars—to be exact, f9S5,- 510,400. The shrinkage in wages alone is about one-half the national debt. But the tables go on. I3e compares tho prices paid for last year's crop of wheat, corn, cotton, oats, potatoes and rye; for last year's output of silver and pig-iron at present prices; for the shrinkage in value of stock exchange securities, mortgage bonds, etc.; and adding these to tho loss in wages already given, ho makes a total loss to the American people, since tho democratic party went into power, of nearly throe billions of dollars—to be exact, fa,717,19S,588. Democrats may sneer at these figures, and call them mathematical romancing. But they are borne out by tho figures of the United States government. Ita decrease in revenue alone shows the extraordinary diminution in the pnr- chaaing power of the American people. For the month of January, the dutiable import* were »32,208,198, against 138,809,525 for the same month In 1893, a decrease of about 44 per cent The customs revenue in February decreased 10,546,000 compared with last year, or 88 per cent In articles of luxury the demand fell off over 50 per cent; in partially manufactured articles, 40 per cent; and BO on down to dutiable articles of food, which fell off about 15 per cent In the face of th* fact that the purchasing power of the American people, and consequently the revenues of the government, are falling off in this enormous proportion, tho democratic president and his "cuckoo" congress are seriously attempting to wipe out what revenue remains. A few days ago in the United States senate it was shown by a treasury statement that there was a deficit of $78,000,000 for the current fiscal year; in addition to this the Wilson tariff bill, even as amended by the senate, discards 170,000,000 of revenue, making a total deficit of 1154,000,000. To repair this hole In the revenue the democrats — who haTe caused it—now propose to levy a socialistic income tax, a tax which will divide this republic into the classes and the masses.
