EVENING BULLETIN, APItlL 17, 189G.
51? Eier?in Bulletin,
DANIEL LOGAN, Editor.
FRIDAY, APRIL 17, 189G.
If in tho multitudoof counselors
thoro is safety, sometimes nlso
there is confusion. This sonnis
to bo tho enso now with regard to
tho question of rovenuo in this re
public. Tho Legislature seems to
bo paralyzed so that it enn do
nothing definite, by tho variety of
clashing opinions dovelopcd in
tho contact of mind with mind in
groping about for a solution.
Outside of tho Legislature- there
is a host of financial doctors, somo
of them who could tench tho me
dicine men on tho inside, but
many who only mako confusion
worse confounded by thrusting
all sorts of empirical notions up
on tho public and, worse than
that, upon tho already bewildered
minds of tho law-makers. If it
wore not generally conceded that
thero nro at least two vitally im
portant matters calling for im
mediate attention, in affairs of
tho trensury, it might bo wise to
suggest that tho whole quustion
should go over to tho noxt Legis
lature. Not to come up at ran
dom, thon, howovor, but in tho re
port of a special commission ap
pointed now, representing tho Ex
ecutive, tho Legislature, tho busi
ness community and tho industri
al classes. In tho meantime lot
tho Minister of Finance submit
such tomporary measuro or mea
sures as in his acknowledged
financial wisdom he deems best,
for the mitigation of oxinting ovils
in tho interim, which tho Legisla
ture should pass with as littlo
mutilation or addition of compli
cating details as possible
Thoro is so much uncertainty,
hort-pvor, as to tho outcome of u
commission that it would bo too
rash to givo the foregoing idea tho
force evon of a suggestion. Tho
costly farce of tho Labor
Commission is fresh in mind,
while tho not slight oxpeuso of
tho Penal Code Commission has
just been thrown into tho firo.
"What wo do adviso, therefore, is
that tho Legislature should rise to
tho occasion and nt least attempt
the most important work demand
ing its attontion. Lot it show
that it represents tho whole peo
ple, and can without fear or favor
discharge its wholo duty toward
them. Inoroaso of tho revenue
without imposing fresh burdens
upon those ill ablo to boar them.
Equalization of direct taxes so
that tho rich shall not ovado thoir
share of tho commonwealth's bur
don. Thoso nro tho two objects
of imminently necessary legisla
tion which aro acknowledged
on all bauds to bo paramount.
Spasmodic offorts have been mado
in tho Legislature toward both,
but for tho most part tho mea
sures havo boon introduced only
to bo picked to pieces, unceremo
niously thrown out, or thoir de
fects aggravated in tho handling.
"Why not refer tho wholo question
to a joint committoo-that, in con
junction with tho Minister
of Financo, Bliould without
delay framo two bimplo measures
opoto provide- for an incomo
tnx and tho othor to so amond tho

sharo of taxes? An incomo law ia
mentioned as something that need
not bo delayed, becauso in all tho
discussion thero has beon no ob
jection to Buch a monsure. As to
tho equalization of taxes tho pro
posal hero mado is not givon as a
finality oxcoptiug for this session.
Thoro aro abuses in real estnto
assessment to bo remedied, but it
is to bo feared thoro is not enough
timo loft to go further this Session
than hero advised. Tho Legisla
ture is limited to a session of nine
ty days, with an extension by
loavo of tho Executive for thirty
days. Moro than half of tho ro
gular limit is gone, having boon
frittered away in sisions not av
eraging thrco hours a day, whilo
somo of the admittedly most im
portant legislation is cither un
completed, or morely broached, or

A phenomenal stove that
burns common Coal Oil (kero
sene) with a blue flame with
The wonderful "NEW PRO
CESS" BLUE FLAME COOK
ING STOVE, which three
years of careful testing has
proven to be wholly practi
cable. Burns coal oil (kero
sene) from a wick, which will
last a year, producing an in
tensely hot blue flame, like
coal gas without odor nev
er smokes as the wick cannot
be turned too high. Absolute
ly non-explosive. All parts
durable and interchangeable.
Requires no more care than
the ordinary house lamp.
This is a stove that admits of
drawing the fluid for light and
heat from the same barrel or
tin. It is the most economi
cal stove in the world and you
cannot afford to be without
The difficulty in the past
with all coal-oil stoves has been
that the means at hand were
entirely inadequate for the re
sults desired. The flame being
in all cases a yellow or illumin
ating flame, made it impossi
ble to place the article or uten
sil in direct contact with it.
As a result the time occupied
in cooking or baking was so
long that it was distressingly
irksome and unsatisfactory.
Again with the old style il
luminating flame oil stove there
is always the liability of the
flame creeping up after the
burner is lighted, sooting every
thing over it and sending forth
a volume of smoke and odor
into the room. A decidedly
disagreeable occurrence, but
what everyone has experienced
who has operated the old
The wonderful "New Pro
cess" Blue Flame Oil Cook
Stove, has a powerful blue
flame absolutely odorless. Any
utensil or flat iron may be
placed directly in the flame
without a particle of soot being
deposited upon it. By the use
of the simplest device it is im
)ossibIe to turn the wick too
ligh, thus insuring a perfect
flame at all times when in oper
ation. Possibly the most posi
tive proof of the success of
this stove is the result obtained
in baking. The inside meas
urements of the oven on the
"New Process" Blue Flame
Oil Stove are 19 1-2 inches
wide, 12 inches deep and 13
1-2 inches high. With this
large oven it is possible to cook
as perfectly ana quickly as in
any coal, gas, or gasoline range.
Tlfe use of coal oil (kerosene)
is so general that every house
hold is provided with it; hence
there is no annoyance in the
matter of proem ing fuel in any

"My watch is giving mo tho ut

liovo it does not vary a Second

Pleasant remarks these. Just
tho kind of balm a watchmaker
needs occasionally to keep up
his spirits. For you know
working all dny on a high
stool, a glass firmly scrawed
into one eye, looking at objects
so minute it takes a microscopo
to distinguish thorn, is not tho
pleasnntest occupation which
could fall to the lot of man.
So it's no wonder a follow

does what all tho patent medi
cine in the world could not ac
complish, cheers up, makes
things look brighter, the next
job goes all tho smoother.
Speaking of the above watch:
It" was an old one. The wearer
had used it steadily for forty
years. It had run enoughjhnd
, revolved its wheels so long and
steadily, that at last it was
tired out. Tho pivots were so
worn, the wheels just wobbled
and wobbled, thon stopped al
together. What was to bo
done? Throw it away? Get a
new one. Yes, but the wearer
valued it for its associations, it ,
was as dear to him as his best I
friend;so nothing would do but
build it all over as it were, rc
now tho parts, put somo go
into it. That wo accomplished
it to tho cntiro satisfaction of
tho owner, his remarks above
would surely leave no room for
doubt. And we can do the
samo with yours,, sometimes
they go a little too fur, and tho
cost for reconstruction is too
much, but generally no work
is too intricate for us. It is
that which wo brag about,
complicated work is our strong
hold. Isn't it reasonable now
to supposo that wo aro better
ablo to do your less intricate
work? Wouldn't it be safer to
givo us tho custody of your
watch altogether, no matter
what tho trouble, and havo a
feeling of certainty as to its
