^Democratic Pretenses 'used in Terms
of Patriotic Klcq'ieaje.
When aroused to intellectual indig
nationhis emotions ai singularly
well under contiol at nil timesSea*
ator Ingalls is the most energetic,
brilliant, aggressive, pertinent, and if
need be, withering of political orators.
His mastei ly command of language,
the accumulative force of his faultless
rhetoric, the vigor and originality of
his ideas in logical expression, the au
dacity of his antitheses, and the dom
inant fact that he is never without the
courage of his convictions, make him
a man to be feared as ^ell as admired*
is to the American what Cicero was
"to the Roman Senate, and his philip
pics, as his speech on the Pension bill
attests, are as punitive of the culprit
Democracy as ever were the invectives
of the patriotic judge of conspirators
against the peace, dignity and honor
of the State of Rome*
I coming to the defense of the
soldier interests it is the business of
the Democracy to assail whenever it is
expedient, Mr. Ingallswas as much in
spired by enthusiasm as impelled by
indignation, and the ringing sentences
hurled defiantly, but with a nice regard
to parliamentary courtesy, at the op
position had in them the ardor of a
siocere sympathizer with the advo
cated cause. Whatever may be the
differences of individual opinion as to
the attitude of the fiery Senator rela-.
tive to certain points in his seemingly
impulsive speech, thero can be but one
View of the soundness and irresistible
right of his deductions. His stand as
-stues lu of the gratitude of the
aoldiers, whose lights he insists must
be regarded and allowed, and the at
tempt of Senator Blackburn to have it
'appear that he maligned tho dead,
memory of whom is^precious to tho ex
soldiers of the Union army, will not
detiact from tho respect and admira
tion won by his emphatic support of
the measure the Demoorats are deter
mined shall faguie as a partisan issue.
Vigor of language is necessary when
a body of men ostensibly loyal to the
inciples of the Union, sit menaoing
in judgment against the just appeals
-of the defenders of that Union, threat
ening the legislative body with the
displeasme of an Executive who sits in
'authority as the representative, not of
the whole people against party, but of
a party against the idea of National
(unity, harmony and justice. Senator
(Ingalls exposed the misrepresentations
and penetrated the sophistry of tho
'Democratic politicians wh have tried
on the one Hand to make it appear that
the petition of the G. A. R. was an in
solent demand, and on the other hand
to insinuate agamst the champions of
the Union soldiers and sailors that they
are seeking only to foster political sen
timent for selfish purposes.
Senator Blackburn could make no
more effective reply to the Kansas Sen
ator's scathing arraignment of the
-Democrats than the reiteration of the
feeble jest of one of his colleagues,
that Ingalls was stirring up for himself
a Presidential "boom A more paltry
evasion of the imperative issue present
ed by the speech of Senator Ingalls
could not well be attempted, and comes
contemptibly from a man of Senator
Blackburn's professsed intelligence,
whose only other reply was deliberate
misrepresentation of Ingalls' clear and
unmistakable declaration. Th Dem
ocrats have persistently falsified the
attitude of the Union soldier, as they
have continuously falsified the facts
a nd figuies relating to the pensioners
and wonld-be pensioners of the gov
ernme nt established by the Union sol
diers. Th declaration that there were
but eight thousand Southern sol
diers in arms at Appomattox at
the time of Lee sunender is not
wider of the truth than the assertion
that half the men who weie in the
Union armies are now on the pension
rolls and neither is more delibeiately
untrue than the repeated mali gn at
tempts to define the motives of the
'soldier and the fiiend ot the soldier.
Senator Ingalls smote wi th irresistible
thrust the pretenses and affections of
the Democrats so apparently zealous
to conserve the right of the many, and
placed before them an issue so plain
that no subterfuge or artifice will
enable the Democrats of the Senate
and House to escape putting them
selves squarely on record for or against
the dependent Union soldier as a
Union soldier. If the Democrats in
sist, as they seem determined to in
sist, on making the soldier question a
political issue, they will find that there
yet exists in. the United States enough
loyalty to the Union and to the soldiers
of the Union to sweep the Democra cy
out of existence on that issue alone.

eVery owner of land to provide for his
present wan ts and the future of his
family and to add to the wealth and
power of his country by developing
and bringing into profitable use all the
resources of his estate, whether they
be the products of the farm or those
of the forest, the mine or the quarry.
The landowners of a nation, however,
are not that portion of its citizens
ho are most dependent upon the
maintenance of a system of duties which
should, under all the vicissitudes of
trade and changes, in the course of
international commerce, defend their
rights for though commercial depres
sion may prevent them from making
profits to be hoarded or expended in the
improvement of their estates, they may
prooure sustenance from them. But it is
not so with the landless millions. Their
estates consist of their th
sinews of the training of

of their taste for and aptne
production of the attractive
texture and color of invent]
which enables them, by
nations of mechanical- prin
applications of science to tEe
increase the productive power of na
tions. These and the like aptitudes
constitute the estate of millions of
people who are known as artists,
artisans, laborers, or by other terms of
designation and who have the right
to demand that their estate also shall
be defended by the nation, though
their defense shall require other
agencies than the power of a navy and
army. Th daily wages of these toil
ing millions are the units of measure
ment by which their estates are told,
and their means of comfort and health
ascertained. And, I repeat it is the
duty of government so to adjust the
regulation of its trade and com

the truth that a protective tariff is the
only defensive instrumentality known

A long as the Grand Army of the
Republic remains to voice the convic

the rebellion, there will be no doctrine
of revolution or disunion, or of exalta

nullification of the fruits of that war,
against which it will not protest, and,
if needs be, its protest will be backed
by the whole force of organized re

he writes, quite oblivious of Lavater:

Noses have, however, been held in

A an oracle the old writers held that
it was a sure sign of faithful affection.
Writes Rouister: "Did my nose bleed
in your company?" And, poor wretch,
just aa she said this, to show her true
heart, her nose fell a bleeding. Bleed
ing of the nose did not always indicate
this, however, as the learned Grose
pleaded, for he held: "If a nose bleed
one drop only, it forebodies sickness if
three drops, the omen is still worse."
While Milton, who wrote the "Astrolo-
gist," said: "If a man's nose bleeds
one drop at the left nostril it is a sign
of good luck." Dekker, on the other
hand, held that the principal use of
the nose was to foretell the coming of

says of Othello:
He was led by the nose as asses are. "W&>
"Paying through the nose," again, is
held to be a condition of too much
trustfulness, and Grimm says that this
saying had its origin in an old practice

penny on every nose or poll. "Tweak
