THE esteemed Journal is getting
rapidly into a position where it can have
a sharp tariff controversy with its own
files. It now admits that the tendency
of a protective tariff is to cheapen
prices. When we st'ted a few weeks
ago that the protective tariff did this
very thing when applied to wool, which
has declined in price since the McKin
ley law went into operation, the Journal
stoutly denied the proposition and con
tended that the increased duty kept
prices from going down. We suggest
that before it goes outside of its own
office for a controversy the Journal take
itself off into a corner and match cop
pers with itself to see to which side of
the question it will stick.
GovERNo lIrr.L's speech in New
York on Thursday night was a most
damaging arraignment of Platt and Fas
sett for their betrayal of New York city
in the World's fair contest. He showed
beyond dispute that long before the
question of location was determined
Platt had made his deal with the Chi
cagopeople to sell out New York. 'The
governor read a copy of a deed to $75,
000 worth of Chicago property, pur
chased by two of Platt's tools, State
Senators Erwin and Vedder, on March
1, 1890. He further showed that MErwin
and Veddor were absent from their
places in the senate on a visit to Chi
cago at the time New York city was
making its effort to got the fair. The
treachery of Platt and his lieutenants
in the legislature to the metropolis lost
the fair to that city and took millions
of dollars from the pockets of its busi
ness men. Chauncey fDepew said, at
the time, that the public ioan who op
posed the bill before the state legisla
ture would be buried under a 100,000
majority should he ever Dresent himself
for the suffrage of the people. The man

the speaker. "It never was married to
it," excitedly rejoined the brother at
whom this shot was fired. Then the
speakers had to be called down and it
is announced that politics must not be
discussed in the gathering. All of which
goes to show that preachers should
stick to their texts and leave politics to
the daily newspapers, which, to say the
least, display no more of the old Adam
in discussing national questions than
the clerical brethren.
THx inconsistency of western repub
licans, whe.say they are for free silver
and yet talk gleefully of the prospects
of McKinley's election, is one of the
curious aspects of this year's politics.
No man did more to defeat free coinage
in congress than Mr. McKinley, and his
opposition to it in his canvass this year
is unrelenting and bitter. In his de
bate with Gov. Campbell, the other day,
Mr. McKinley used these words: "The
republican party stands opposed to free
and unlimited coinage of silver under
existing conditions and insists that that
cannot be safely done until the great
commercial nations of the world shall
have, by confirmed action, fixed the
ratio between gold and silver." To
leave no mistake as to his antagonism to
this great interest he further said:
"Upon the question of silver the demo
cratic platform of Ohio has declared
without qualification for the free and
unlimited coinage of the silver of the
world as freely as gold is now coined,
and upon the ratios fixed by, public
Here are two parties squarely arrayed
against each other on this issue. The
democrats for free coinage; the repub
licans against it. Yet we see newspapers
like the Butte Inter -Mountain, pub
lished in the heart of one of the greatest
silver mining districts in the world,
dealing falsely with that interest and
supporting its worst enemy. One would
think that the people of Butte, who live
by this industry, would demand some
reciprocity from the newspaper which
lives on their bounty.

Young Girls and Slang.
There are many foolish girls in this com
munity as well as all others who think that
slang passes for brilliancy in conversation.
Poor. simple mortals! How sadly mistaken
they are. How they can confound slang
with brilliancy is hard to conceive. They
are as widely apart as the tropic and a otic
regions, and equally as positive in their
effect upon the intelligent mind. Slang is
a low, vulgar, unauthorized language in
dulged in only by the lower classes of'aJ
ciety, while brilliancy is distinanished' a
brightness that excites admiration. . Sng
is the essence of bad breeding, only flt be
used by those who make no pretensioin to
intellectuality, and seldom get into society
where their effervescence of hog-English
would cause offense.
Brilliancy glitters, whether in a literal or
free sense, and stamps the individuea who
develops this quality in conversatiodtas a
gem worthy to adorn the higher circles of
social life. Anything coarse or vulgar in
feminine character is a detraction fr om that
divinity which God intended and mahl ex
pects in woman. Whenever a woman an
pears otherwise she descends from the high
plane of virtue, tenderness and moddety
which it was contemplated from the begin
ning she should occupy. To hear a woman
make use of slang g ates harshly upon the
sensitiveness of even a hardened man,
Cultivate a taste for pure and wholesome
language in conversation which will tend to
elevate you in the estimation of those
among whom you mingle. Abolish the use
of slang under any and all circumstances
and you, like us, will soon put your stamp
of condemnation upon the tongue that
defames the name of angelic woman by its
No More Artificial Teeth.
Old age is robbed of half its terrors and
much of its deformity by the brilliant dis

sky, who, according to a possibly over.san
agine Russian contemporary, has delighted
the civilized world by his skill in making
teeth grow in toothless gums. After ex
perimenting on dogs he tried the effects of
his method in human Loings, and the suc
cess was complete. The teeth are made of
putta percha, porcelain or metal,. as may be
desired. The root of the false tooth has
some holes bored in it. Holes are now
bored in the jaw, and into the hole the
false tooth is stuck as is a nail into wood.
In a short time a tender growth starts up
in the cavity of the false tooth, and this
growth hardening, the tooth beSomes
xred in position. These new teeth
can, according to the inventor, be
placed in the alvolus of a natural
tooth, and thus when a diseased tooth is
pulled out a metal or porcelain sustitute
can be inserted in its place wiShout
incurring any risk of tranefer
ing disease, as happened in Hun
ter's days, when the apparently sound
teeth of poor persons when transplanted
not infrequently conveyed disease.
'Ibere are several minor incon
sistencies in this statement, but it
would be ungracious to look such a noble
gift in the mouth, especially as according
to dentists of good authority our race is
destined eventually to become edentulous.
What Did Shakespeare Die Of?
'there is a tradition of very respectable
antiquity that Shakespeare died of a fever
contracted through going on a drinking
bout with Ben Jonson and other boon
companions. Mr. J. F. Nisbet, in his new
work, "The Insanity of Genius," discusses
the question from an entirely new point of
view, that of pathology. In the author's
opinion, Shakespeare died of paralysis, or
some other disease akin to paralysis. The
signature to the will, he holds, affords
strong presumption of this. but he has also
other facts to adduce in support of this
theory. In 157, Dr. Hall's medical cure
book was published by James Cooke, "a
practitioner in physick and chirurger.'"
Dr. Hall, as is well known, was Shake
speare's son-in-law, and his book proves be
yond doubt that nervous disease existed in
Shakespeare's family, a fact which Mr.
Nisbet considers accounts for the short
average duratlon of the lives of its mem
bers, and the er eedy extinction of the line
of Shakespeare's direct desoendents.-Medi.

eoctiles for use in case of marine disasters,
has made a report to the secretary of the
treasury recommending that the question
be referred to the ordnance bureau of the
war department as possessing the best facil
ities for conducting experiments. The
board also recommends the repeal of, or
amendment to, sections 4,488 and 4,489, re
vised statutes, until safe and feasible means
can be invented to accomplish the object
contemplated by such amendment in the
use of apparatus.
