THE BEWARD OF HONESTY.
It Is Not Al iiyii So Fre'o and Generous

"Tho cose presented In last night's
paper of a reward of $10 being paid for the
return of J50 rem i mis me of a similar
anecdote only different," said the an
cient New England member of tbe club
tbis morning. "It happened In Providence,
It. I., forty years ago, when the clly con
tained but otic millionaire, who was an old
Scotchman named Alexander Duncan.
One day Mr. Duncan, in leaving bis office,
dropiied a large roll of banknote!) In tbe
street. Tlivy escaped his eye, but not that

Tbe roll contained $000. When Mr. Dun
can rcccelved It be eagerly counted the
rroney, and, finding It correct, be turned
to tbe toy and said: 'I thank ye, my little
Iran.' Tben, noticing the look of dismay in
the poor lad's countenance, he felt n his
trousers pocket and fished out a coin, which
be handed to the finder of bis woalth. And
tbe coin represented w hat do you tliiul?"
"A half dollar."
"A quarter of a dollar."
'Just half of that. It was an old Spanish
coin that we used to call a nluepence In New

Squeezed the Hand of un Empress In
the Fcror of ItecltHtloim.
O. W. Smaller, In "Studies of Men," re
lates the following imldcnl: "Tennyson
was one of the party Invited some years
since by Mr Donald Currie on a jaelitlug
trip, the yacht provided bring an ocean
steamer or the South Africa Line, known as
tbe Pembroke Castle. Mr. Gladstone was
another guest, I think certainly he was on
one of the two or three trips thin taken.
There was on board a young English girl,
since married and dead, whose beauty and
intclligencoanri charm were a II remarkable.
Tennjson attained himself to this brilliant
and sjmpathctic creature. He was often
t asked to read, and it biiame bis habit to
read holding her hand, which. In the fervor
of rciitalion, be often pressed. The ship
put In at Copenhagen, and the rrincess of
Wales and the Empress of Russia, then on a
visit to beroldhome, camenn board. There
was luncheon, and after luncheon Tennjson
was asked to read, and did, si Iting between
tbe Empress on one side and the English
girl on tbe other. When It was over and
they had gone up on deck he asked the girl
whether she thought tbe Empress liked it.
'Wed, answered sbe, 'her majesty must
have thought It a little unusual.' 'What
do you mean? 'I mean that I don't think
tbe Empress Is In the habit of having her
band squeezed in public, even by poets.'
It seemed proper to Tennjson to offer to
the Empress his most humble apologies for
bis mistake. The Empress laughed, and
told him she had enjojed the reading ex
tremely." Caught by the Shilling.
Early in the present century there was a
public house in Bridge street, Kirkwall,
w hich was a favorite resort of tbe press
gang, especially on market days, and nota
few j oung men got into trouble there. The
method adopted for trapping unsuspecting
youth was somewhat as follows: One of
the press gang would take up a position at
a window up-stairs, while two of his com
panions were secreted near the front of
the baUdlng on theground floor.
If a likely looking young man was seen
passing along the street a shilling was
dropped over the upper window. The
youth would stop and pick it up, and while
he was so engaged the press gang pounced
upon him. The baton was then laid on
his shoulder, and he was blandly told that,
having accepted the shilling, be would
now hae to go and servo his majesty.
Many a young man was captured in tbis
way, and tbeso helped considerably to
rouse tbe feelings of the people against the
press gang. Chambers' Journal.

Tbe spirit of prophecy has for months
been abroad In Uie land seeking to prog
nosticate, either by oracles or conjurations,
the Individuality of the men who shall
serve as standard-bearers of tbe two great
political parties in the national campaign
Every availability and possibility has
been mentioned, considered and dissected.
The Democratic and Republican nominat
ing conventions have been anticipated and
brought so near that their action, both real
and speculative, Is now forming a chief
ingredient of current history.
In these ante-convention calculations
the Populists seem to have had no part or
parcel. Their existence has been ignored
and their disintegration accepted as a
matter of time, if not already accomplished.
That party, as a power In politics, has lost
I- But In view of the fact that the despised
and disregarded Populists are desttucd to
hold the balance of power in the next Sen

thousand votes in the lost Congressional
elections, and that they now claim, with
someshow of reason, atotal voting strength
of fully two million, the under dog in tbe
fight must not be entirely overlooked or
The Information may even be somewhat
In the nature of a surprise that the Popu
lists intend to become the aggressors In the
approaching campaign, and will ask no odds
from cither of tbe larger and stronger
parties. They will neither seek nor accept
fusion. They will not wait for either
party to set the political paceandformulate
a declaration of principles, but will them
selves open tbe engagement and fire tbe
THE PROBABLE PLATFORM.
The Populist have deterrulni-d to hold
their national nominating convention
on tbe 22d of February. Wlthlna few days
a rreetlng of tbe executive committee will
be held to select a place and formally fix tbe
above mentioned date. Tbis unprecedent
edly early nomination will glc the third
party a longer period In which to make
a canvass, and afford a better opportunity
of promulgating doctrines and pursuing tbe
work o'f education.
The platform of the Populists will reaf
firm the three cardinal principles upon
which the parly Is founded It will declare
for a legal tender paper currency, asserting
that money Is simply a creation of law, and
that God did not make gold andsHtcrespo
clally to be used as a circulating medium.
It will demand the coinage of all gold and
slUer and the Issuance of enough paper cur
rency to bring prices up to a living basis.
The platform will also pronounce for Gov
ernmental control of railroads. The same
plank will assert that every rod of ground
should bo owned by an American citizen,
and that all the large laud grants stolen
from the people should be recovered and
sold to actual settlers. In other words,
reforms m finance, transportation and land
ownership will be the declaration of prin
ciples upon which the parly will appeal for
the privilege of administering national af
fairs. When N. A. Dunning, editor of the Watch
man, tbe national organ of the Populist
part-, was asked by an Evening Times man
If his associates were dead or sleeping, he
promptly replied that they were, on tho
contrary, very much alUe and ready for any
and every kind of a fight.
"We are doing business at tbe same old
stand," said Mr. Dunning. "We have nomi
nated tickets In every State, county and
township whero elections will be held this
coming November. Wc have a good, fair
chance of winning In Kentucky, and expect
to pull through. Our candidate for gov
ernor in that State Is Tom Pettit, who was
reading clerk for Sam Eandall during his
STvIce as Siwaker of tbe House. He Is a
rattling good man, and will likely be
elected. The people of Kentucky are not
satisfied with tbe declarations of either
tbe Republicans or Democrats on tbe finan
"There is also a prospect of good results
in Mississippi. Frank Burkett, an excel
lent man, popularand well-known, has been
nominated for gcernor, and will deeIop
more strength than is now apparent.
"Coxey wasgiven the nomination In Ohio,
but I cannot predict how well he will run.
As a matter of fact, we arc making a fight
wherever there Is a chance, without any
inference to the probabilities of success or
defeat. We are fighting for principle, and
A COUPON CANDIDATE.
"So far as the next national campaign
is concerned, we are making every prep
aration for an early and active canvass,
ond expect to largely increase oar con
ceded vote of 2,000,000. We feel that
the people are not satisfied with the way
thiDgs are going. They realize that some
thing Is wrong, and no other party is pro
posing or suggesting a remedy.
"The two "old parties will either throw
mud or fall back on the tariff for an Issue..
Our declarations on the three chief party
tenets may be somewhat modified, but
there Is no doubt that the same general
Ideas will prevail as heretofore.
"Tbe Populist platform will be so plain,
simple and manifestly Just as to dlrcetly
appeal to tbe people. A good Presidential
candidate will be selected to stand upon
that platform, and be will not only.be the
choice of the convention, but of a large
proportion of the party. We are now en-

relative popularity or tbe various candi
dates who may be suggested. A poll-book
bas been opened In our office here, and
every mall brings from a half peck to
bushel or letters containing ballots express
ing a Presidential preference.
"Strength of the candidates varies all tbe
way from ex-Representative Sibley, or
Pennsylvania, to ex-Gov. Walte, of Col
orado'. The ratio of preference places Mr.
Sibley first; Senator Allen, of Nebraska,
second, and Senator Stewart, of Nevada,

"The Populists 'ore not cranks, fanatics,
or theorists, as many people seem to be
lieve. 8ome of the great leaders or the
Democratic party have been ourassoclates
in other days, and advocated the faith that
they now seek to destroy. Populism is
on off-shoot of Qrcenbackisni both con

be supplemented by an issue of paper money
sufficient in volume to permit the trans
action of legitimate business. Tree-President
Stevenson was once In ourranks, having

"Why, the fact seems to have been for
gotten that J. Sterling Morton, at present
Becretary of Agriculture, and the most
ardent and irrepressible advocate of gold
monometallism, was within the past two
decades the slauncbest of staunch Green
backers. "Here," said Mr. Dunning, producing
a long, white slip of paper, "Is a bona -fide
original Greenback national ticket for
1876. At the top you see: 'For President,
Benjamin F. Butler, of Massachusetts.'
Then follows the list of electors for the
State of Nebraska, and below that tbe full
State ticket. Do you observe that It reads:
'For Governor, J. Sterling Morton.' This
gold standardlst Is tbe same man who nine
teen years ago was proud to bave his name
appear upon the Greenback ticket with
that or Ben Butler.
Eveu Secretary Carlisle used to sub
scribe to the dttrincs which we now advo
cate. Instead or being filled with im
practicable Ideas, we have the best of
authority for our opinions. Both Jeffer

ciples that we teach.
"What the Populists are fighting for is a
cheaper dollar and a dearer day's work.
In 18CG this country had a per capita
circulation of $02, and there were no mort
gages mid no tramps. Now it can be proven
by figures that there Is an actual per capita
circulation of leu than $0 among those
doing business. The reason for this is that
hi 1866 wc bad three kinds of money gold,
sliver and paper. Now we bave but one
kind gold. ,
"I fully appreciate the fact that tbe
Populists must git tbe tradeMncu and
business men to Join their party or it must
go to pieces. There is no class of people
on earth that needs reformation more than
the business men. I renllybellevctbattherc

The forthcoming annual report of the Com

as to changes In the revenue laws. The in

receive his consideration, and it is also
probable that ho will discuss administra
A restoration of tax on proprietary medi
cines, cosmetics and the like is under consid

ommendation of a tax of 4 percent on these
articles is among the probabilities. Such a
tax can be collected without additional ex
pense to tbe Treasury except that Incurred
for the printing of stamps.
Many of tbe larger manufacturers would
not be averse to the restoration of this tax,
for the reason that tbe possession of a
stamp of special design lsKued by tbe Gov
ernment Is a means of protection against
imitations, from which most of tbe popular
and efficacious articles of tbis kind now
suffer. Several aiillion dollars would be
rained from this source without adding to

TO" PROTECT CONSUMERS.
Commissioner Miller has been giving some
thought to a scheme to promote the sale of
the old and better grades of whisky, both
In the home and foreign markets.
Theexienlsonof the bondisl period enables
manufacturers and dealers in tho higher
grades to gl c a guarantee of age up to
eight years, under the certification of the
Government as to large packages. But
when this old liquor lea es the bonded ware
house In large packages It may be blended
and adulterated by the dealer without
fear of detection.
Thescbcme of the commissioner Is to have
the law amended so that manufacturers
may put up the old whiskeys In quart bottles,

houses, under the charge of a Gowrnment
officer, who shall at Uu!ihl.i signature, with

The Commissioner believes the enactment
of such a law would not only insure the
people at home against the imiMisition of
dishonest dealers, bit would promote the
sale of American whiskies In foreign
countries where distilled spirits are used as
a bc erage.

Vhether an increase in the present tax"
on fermented liquors will be recom

of $1 ier barrel on fermented liquors Is
generally regarded as too low, and an in

Commissioner Miller Is dlsitosed to fa
