or meohanic, who tdik from ten to
twelve boors a day to get bread for
theaaoutusof his family, and who
trudges hk way to and from ih
work on foot, with bis dinner pail
oa bis arm, or, peronance, pays a

aoaey to the same extent as the
wealthy geatleman, with hk car
riage and 2.20 steppers, or the
transfer companies, with their
numerous vehicles, which require
the., constant use of the streets.
The poor men are the ones upon
which this tax k a burden; they
get little or no benefit from good
streets, either by way of pleasure
or proat. Tae,.oaes who get the
great oenefits, are the men who
contribute nothing to the mainten
ance of the public streets and
We see ao good reason why the
streets should not be kept in repair
by a general tax, the same as other
public institutions, as the courts, the
schools, the prisons, the asylums,
or the government itself. The
"poll-tax" k a jelic of barbarity,
and ought to be abolkhed. Many
of the eastern cities have done
away with the ankance long ago,

the streets ia consequence thereof.

atoms. DariBg oar civil war block
ade runners were frequently caught
carryiug arms, ammuaition and
supplies td the Confederates, but
no one ever thought of puttiBg
them to death for that offense.
It seems to us that oar Govern
ment k a little too slow in dealiag
with the Cuban question. The po
sition of the Broad Ax on thk sub
ject has Veen very plainly expressed
several weeks ago, and at thk time
we have nothing to take back; but
we believe now more earnestly than
ever, that ike stars and stripes
should float over Cuba's capital;
that the President should not only
recognize the Cubans as a belliger
ent power, but that under the pro
visions of the Monroe doctrine, our
government should protect these
struggling patriots from the iron
hand of Spanish oppression.
. It begin to look as though the
rich corporations, the Shylocks,
and the foreign syndicates'Vere the
only ones to receive protection. A
proclamation recognizing the inde
pendence of the Cuban Republic,
would end hostilities in nicety
days, and bring the blessings of
heaven upon the Cuban patriots
and the people of the United States.
GETTING READY TO EAT
The Tribune last Sunday had an
editorial headed, "The Conven
tions," in which that journal con
ceded that the Democratic National
Convention would have a large-ma
jority favoring the free coinage of
silver. It also gave rather a gloomy
prospect for silver at the hands of
the Republican Convention at St.
Louis, but advised the silver mento
"make the fight of their lives," that
"they cwould be listened to with
more patience than they now ex
pect." It then rambled off mto aa
abuse of the Democratic party and
the -present Administration, and
winds up with an appeal to stay by
the g. o. p.., and abide that party's
method of drowniBg the white metal
in the sea of. protection. The
ZWsiays of its party: "It k the
only party that can undo the mis
chief of 1873," and the inference k,
that it should be returned to power
for that purpose. The idea k ab
surd; it would be like reiastating
an embescling clerk, or official- to a
place of trast, on the theory that as
they did the wroagtbey would know
best how to right it. The fact k,
the Tribme k looking for a soft
pot to fall oa; or ia other words;
prepariag to "eat crew." It sees
the party of it ohoice k geiag to
