A Bolfl Solieme to Pension the Survivor*
of the "tost Cansp."
Give the Demociats full possession
of the Government ami with such a
majority that they would feel compara
tively independent of political chances,
and there is no predicting how great
Would be their concessions to the ex
rebel element. The head of the party,
as in the ante-bellum days, is in the
South, and it is only a fear of an
aroused Northern sentiment that keeps
fehe organization as a whole decently
within bounds. The attempt of the
Administration to return the rebel flags
was an unmistakable indication of the
disposition of the Democracy to con
ciliate the ex-Confederacy and make
fast friends of the men who came from
battle-fields where they wore butcher
ing Union soldiers.
i The air is full of signs revealing the
drift of Dsmocratic sentiment. The
assaults upon the Grand Army, led by
such ex-Confederates as Senator Vest
and indorsed by leading Democratic
papers, coupled with President Cleve
land's vetoes of pension bills, conveyed
in sneering and abusive messages, show
how the defenders of the Union stand
with the party in executive power.
Senator Ingalls was right when he said
in his speech. "The South doos not
like Union soldiers. The Democratic
party does not like them, it never
But the Democratic party does like
ex-Confederate soldiers, and the dom
inant section of the party, located in
the South, loses no opportunity to pre
fer for political office the men who
wore the grey and sought the life of
the Union. At the same time the Union
is studiously ignored. For part proof
of this read the biographies of Demo
cratic Senators and Representatives of
this and pieceding Congresses. The
surest passport to Democratic favor
Beems to be a recoid of devotion to
the "lost cause." And there are many
Democrats to-day who would readily
approve the granting of pensions to
ex-rebel soldiers but for the fear of the
wrath that would be evoked from loyal
peojile at any such attempt.
It is not suipusing, then, to read in
the American Maqazme au argument
in behalf of a proposition that $25,000,-
000 of the National Government's sur
plus be distributed among the sick
and destitute suivivors of tho war,
"no nvitter whether they served in the
armies of the Union or tho Confed
eracy." What a splendid entering
wedge this would be toward oblit
erating the distinctions thus far
maintained between patriots and
traitors' Of comse, tho man who
wrote that ai tide i & a Democrat his
appeal will find welcome in Demo
cratic hearts only, and if the project
be ever realized it will be earned by
Democratic vole* in Congress, and ap
proved by a Democratic Piesident.
If that scheme succeeded, how far off
would be the ly when ex-Confed
erate soldiois would be pensioned on
the same scale as the bovs in blue?
And wouldn't payment of the rebel
debt be the next thing?
It is possible that the Republic may
some da} become so deteriorated, so
lost to selt-iespect that it can look
upon such a state of things with com
mendation I so, it would have been
far better that Grant and not Lee had
capitulated at Appomattox. The way
in which to answer all such movements
in the South as those above referred to
and the rhetoric published in Northern
magazines is to turn the Democratic
paity out of power That step would

Million* of Dollars Miming- fiom the
Lnitetl States Treasury.
When the Republicans wont out of
powei in Washington the Democratic
journals and politicians all ovei the
countrv raised agieat shout of Count
the money!" They pietended to be
lieve that millions would be found
missing trom the Tieasury. The
money was counted, and every cent
was found in the Tieasury. But if the
money should be counted now, after
only thiee yoars of Democratic Admin
istration, the money would not be
found the Trcasmr. Millions would
be found missing fiom the Ireasury.
It is not in the Tieasury. Where is it?
According to Congressman Weaver,
Greenbacker and Democrat, of Iowa,
the Administration, fnghtened by tho
piling up of tho surplus idle and out
of the channels of business, undertook
to put the idle money into circu
lation b\ miking certain favoied
banks a freo present of its use, and so
has loaned out to these favored banks,
without interest, and nobody knows
on what security, millions on mil
lions of the people's money. And
now if the Government should sud
denly want this money, and call it
in, the result would probably be a tei
rible financial panic and crash. The
favored banks to whom the use of this
money has been given, Mr. Weaver
savs, have been used to boom the price
of United States bonds so that, if the
Government now wants to pay off the
bonds, it will hate to pay twenty-five
per cent, premium to these same
banks, in whose power the Adminis
tration has placed the Government,
Worse if the Government was going
to give the use of the public money,
which ought to be in the Treasury,
to an}* banks, it ought to divide equally
with all. If it is going to let the banks
have the use of the people's money, it
ought to lot every body have the same
chance on the same terms. The peo
ple are beiug taxed one hundred mill
ion a year simply to give certain
favored banks the use without interest
of the money thus wrought from the
tax-payers. Now, there are accusa
tions made by a Democrat and Green
backer against the Democratic Admin
istration. No Democratic Congress
man dared to dispute the facts. What
do the people think of them?Lan

How Cleveland's Henchmen Have Moat
Picturesquely Belied Him.
A few weeks hence the Democratic
party will again, appeal to tho people
to support it at the polls. Upon what
grounds will this support be asked?
This query can not be answered def
initely until after its convention meets
and its platform is framed. Four
years ago it declared that no party
should be permitted to remain long in
power lest it grow corrupt and its of
ficials become the masters instead of
the servants of the people. This was
one of the principal arguments which
it used to induce the country to place
it in control of the Government. Man
ifestly this argument, which would be
much more impressive and appropriate
now than it was in 1884. will not be
emyloyed by the Democracy this year.
Four years ago the Democratic party,
in the platform adopted at its nomina
ting convention, declared that it
pledged itself to "restore economy, to
revive respect for law, and to reduce
taxation to the lowest limit consistent
with due regard to the preservation of
the faith of the nation to its creditors
and pensioners." It has not done, nor
is it seeking to do, any one of these
things. In the same platform the party
promised to "revise the tariff in a spirit
of fairness to all interests." No
intelligent, honest Democrat will claim
that this promise has been kept, nor
will he assert that it is likely to be
kept. The party also declared itself
in favor of "honest Civil-Service re-
form," and avowed that it is the duty
of the Government "to mete out equal
and exact justice to all citizens, oi
whatever nativity, race, color or per
suasionreligions or political." It is
hardly necessary to tell newspaper
readers, Democratio or Republican,
that the record of the past three years
demonstrates that, in each of these
particulars, Democratic or Republican,
that the record of the past three years
demonstrates that, in each of these
particulais, Democratic professions
have been flagrantly and picturesquely
belied by Democratic practices.
Of course, no sane, sincere person
will pretend that there was any in
tention on the part of the Democrats
to cany out their promises. The in
dividuals who drew up the platform
knew, as wrell
as they knew any thing
whioh was yet in the future, that these
professions would be contemptously
disregarded. But this knowledge did
not stay the hands of the men who
prepared this utterance. Nor will a
like knowledge of Democratic decep
tion have any restraining influence on
those who will prepare the platform of
the party when it assembles in June
next in St. Louis. The old pleas in
favor of popular support, it would
seem, should hardly be available this
year. But those who imagine that the
party will, on this account, lack the
presumption to appeal for a continu
ance in office are simply unaware of
the extent and versatility of Demo
cratic duplicity. Whether or not this
apjea will be successful depends on the
number of persons in the United St ites
who deliberately permit themselves to
be duped. Ihe proportion which
these individuals bear to the entire
voting population of the country can
not bo told with deliniteness until after
the votes are counted in November

THE GYPSY'S CURSE.
Why I Was Uttered and How I Has
In 1878 a band of roving Gypsies vis
ited Pioche and pitched their tents near
the town. Among their number was a
weird and venerable fortune-tellin
dame. Though the woman was a wild
looking hag, she claimed to be a sort of
queen among her people. In Pioche,
whenever she appeared on the streets,
this red-mantled old witch was mocked
at and derided. She endured this for a
time, but one day became enraged, and
in a towering passion she raised her
staff in her withered hands and cursed
the people and the town. She cursed
them in the product of their mines, in
their business of traffic, and in their
houses and lands for ten years. For
tan years she said they would wither
and decay until houses were abandoned
and streets deserted, then would come
a new people and a new era, when the
old prosperity of the place would return.
When she had thus cursed the town
and the people the old witch turned on
her heel and strode away. The camp
of her people at once struck their tents
and all departed, never again to return.
Ever since that time the blasting influ
ence of the old woman's curse has been
upon the town, as is supposed, until
this year (1888), when the ten years
expired. Now the old prosperity is
returning. The deserted mines are
being reopened, people who were
starred out of the place are returning
to claim and repossess their property,
merchants and tradesmen are again
opening stores and shops, and Pioche
is at last to have long-delayed railroad
and transportation facilities. At last
the curse of the Gypsy woman is off the
town, and again the people are ani
mated by their old-time spirit au4 enter

The devolaon of the American girl
for gum has been remarked for lo!
this many a year, but the habit of
gum-chewing has remained until the
present season in all its pristine sim
plicity. The gum has been bought in
small quantities at the druggist's or
the confectioner's, and has been masti
cated with due frankness. At last
some enterprising genius with an
artistic temperament has come to the
relief of the girls who are addicted to the
habit, and by one great stroke has
elevated it to the level of an accomplish
ment. He has done this by what is
called a "gum-board." The girls de
corate the sides of the frame, pin silk
ribbons upon the corners, hang it up
on the walls of their chambers, and
in some cases have even gone so far as
to issue orders for special gumboards
to be made that in color and form
shall harmonize with the furniture in
their apartments. Heretofore the dis
coverer of a particularly choice morsel
of tutti-frutti or spruce has been oblig
ed, when occasion demanded the re
linquishment of the chew, to stick it
upon the mantel-piece, or upon the
window frame, or when retiring,
upon the bed post. The objections to
this method of preserving the morsel
are apparent and well known to all
who have tried it if placed upon the
bed-post or window frame it is liable,
upon being taken off again to resume
the mastication, to carry some flavor
of paint with it during the first few
chews. This, of course, is disagreeable
in itself, and more so because it de
tracts from the esthetic enjoyment of
the gum. On the other hand, if the
gum is placed on the marble mantel, it is
liable to take up with it, when removed
some of the dust that inevitably lingers
upon any piece of furniture, in spite of
the most careful attention of the house
The gum-board is designed to over
come all these disagreeable features of
the preservation of the chew. It is
made of highly polished slate and is
surrounded by a frame which makes
the board itself set in about an inch or
a little more from the level of the frame.
Then there is a nice glass door on
hinges that shuts in upon the gum
board, thus protecting it from dust.
When the girl, then, has chewed a
sufficiently long time upon her gum or
is interrupted in the process ot her es
thetic enjoyment by callers and is
under the necessity, therefore of using
her teeth and tongue for conversational
purposes she simply opens this glass
door, presses the gum upon the pol
ished slate, closes the door, and leaves
it, confident that when she wishes to
return to her delectable pleasure the
mor&el can be taken be taken up free
from any heterogeneoub matter.New

St. James" Gazette: At the last meet- **%v^
ing of the Royal Society of EdinbnrgL j
Dr. John Murray of the Challenger g&z^ep,
expedition made a communication on|f
"TheHight and volume oi the Dry
Land and the Depth and Volume of
the Ocean." According to his own in-s^
vestigations, Engineering sap, the^
mean hight of the land of the glob* 1
was 2.230 feet above the sea level, and
the mean depth of the ocean was 12,-
480 feet, or 2,080 fathoms. If the
ocean were regarded as being divided
into two parts by the 1,000-fathom line
it would be found that the mean depth
of the area having less depth than
1,000 fathoms was 2,028 feet, or 888
fathoms, or nearly the same depth, be^
neath the sea as the night of the dry
land above it. On the other hand, the
mean depth of the area beyond tho
1,000 fathoms is 14,640 feet, or 2,440
fathoms. The former areacalled by
Dr. Murray the "transitional area"
occupies 24,000,000 square miles and
the latter area, which is the abysmal
area, and is situated fully three miles
below the average hights of the conti
nents, occupies 113,000,000 square
miles, or more than half of the surface
of the earth. In the transitional area
of the ocean there are many and varied
conditions in respect of light, heat,
currents, changes of level, the charac
ter and variety of the deposits, and in
the animals and plants which inhabit
the various parts of the region.
The deposits are in most respects
similar to those which make up a very
large part of the sedimentary forma
tion of the dry land. In the abysmal
area there is a uniform set of condi
tions, the temperature being near the
freezing point, with an annual range not
exceeding 7 Fahrenheit, and there
being no sunlight or plant life. There
is a great abundance of animal life but
the forms from various parts of the
area are very similar, and unlike those
of shallower waters and the deposits,
which accumulate slowly, are unlike
any of the sedimentary deposits of the
dry land. From Dr. Murray's investi
gations it also appears that if the dry
land of the globe were reduced to the
sea level by being removed to and
piled up in the shallower waters of the
ocean then its extent would be about
80,000,000 square miles, and the rest
of the surface of the earth would be
covered by an ocean extending to 118.-
000,000 square miles. Again, should
the whole of the solid land be reduced
to one level under the ocean then the
surface of the earth would be covered
by an ocean with a uniform depth of
about two miles.
