FiiEsiriENT Cleveland's message
which was read to Congress on Monday
of last week.is quite a lengthydoo
utnent. It deals with tho great questions
of the day in a most masterly
manner and evinces a close study of
public affairs and a valiant efiort to
apply the proper remedy. Among
other things it recommends:
Free Iron ore and coil.
The repeal of the differential duty on sugar.
The repeal of the law denying registry to foreign
An Increase In the army.
The existence of coast defenses. .
The appointment of an additional Judge In

That it costs much money to pay
the actual expenses of the United
States Government we all fully real
ize. The following is the estimate
of the expenses of the Government
for 1895 furnished by the clerks of
the Senate and House appropriation
Agricultural, $,4.33, Army, 24,600,683, Diplomatic
and Consular, i,6Sj,ti8, District of
Columbia, I7.a17.9j1. Fortifications, I7JJ7.70J.
Indians, $6,736,844, Legislative, etc, $11,349,101,
Military Academy, $579,04': Navy, $30,951,096,
Fenslons, $141,581,570; I'ostoffice, $91,059,18,
River and Harbors, $M75,o; Sundry Civil, $46,.
These items are necessary for the
proper maintenance and operation of
the Government. To the payment
of these every citizen is willing to
contribute his part. What we object
to in government is needless expenditure
of mouey and taxation for
any other purpose save for ono sole
object of raising money to pay these
bills. Democracy declares all other
taxation to bo unjust and unconsti
tutional, and it is.

BOTH 1'ABTIES AFKAID OF IT.
Tho Democratio party during tho recent,
session of Congress managed to
get tho tariff question to a point along
the road of progress wbcro it will be
likely to stick for many years to eome.
Each party will for some timo be afraid
to do much tinkering with tbe measure.
Two years ago the Republicans were
defeated for increasing the tariff, while
last month tbo Democrats wero in turn
defeated for reducing it. Perhaps a
happy medium has been reached; if so,
let us be thankful. Tbo Republicans
dare not when they get in power increase
the dnty on tho necessaries of
lifo, while tbe Democrats daro not undertake
any further to legislate in favor
of free trade. The tariff question is
loaded at both ends and is liable to
destroy any and all who touch it. One
good thing, however, tho Democrats
aro tho ones who put the ball in tbe
hole for the present.
it's the same ukre, nnoTUER.
If we can say soml'ming good about
a citizen, a now enterprise, tho church,
es, our business houses, or what not,
pooplo will read it, and that's all. If
wo have to say anything about any
person or enterprise that is not just
what they think it should be there's
an enemy. You can't surround it with
enough patent medicine ads to hide it.
Though it be clothed in the bestc of
English, and the rhetorical construction
perfect, it will not fail to orcato an
enemy in the camp. Somo pooplo
think that if a newspaper can't say
something good about everything, it
ought to keop silient. Well, that may
be; but to publish the nows we have to
deal with subjects that can not bring

W. ASHINQTON LETTER..
(l'rora our special correspondent,
Wasihhotoh, D. 0., Dec. 7, 1894.
Tho Demoeratio Senators bavo mado
earnest efforts this week to agree upon
a programme for tho session. Two
conferences have been held for the exchange
of views, bnt the samo old
to harmony too many different
views and too many would be leaders
still stands in tho way. There is still
hone, howover, that some sort of an
agreement may be reached, but it is altogether
too much like tbo hope indulged
in by a very sick man that he
will get well to please those Democrats
who have no sympathy with the attitude
assumed by certain Senators elected
Democrats, at tbe last session, and
which is still maintained by them.
They then adopted a rulo or ruin, policy
and notwithstanding the rnin which
their rule has already accomplished,
they still stick to it.
The Democrats of the House have
deferred holding their caucus until
next week so as to Rive tho Senators
timo in which to decide what is to bo
done or attempted, at this session.
That the Democrats in Congress are
doing some hard thinking on the
financial plan proposed by Secretary
Carlisle and endorsed by Presidont
Cleveland is shown by tbeir reluctance
to commit themselves at this time either
for or against the proposed plan.
The short time at their disposal will, of
course, increase the chances against tho
adoption of such a comprehensive finan
cial measure, although thero is a disposition
on the part of tbe Southern
Democrats to try to pass a bill embodying
that part of the plan that pro
vides for the exemption of tho currency
of such State banks aa may adopt
tho regulations provided from Federal
taxation. President Cleveland says be
considers tho plan proposed by Secre
tary Carlislo as the most statesmanliko
financial document ever submitted to
Congress, and that he proposes to stand
by it to the end of bislerm.
A subcommittee of the House com'
mitteo on .banking and Currency was
appointed at the last session to eon
sider the nnmerous bills before that
committee and to formnlato either
from them, or as an original measure,
something to take tbo place of the
national banking law. Representative
Cox, of Tennessee, is chairman of this
subcommittee, and tho other
members aro Culbertson, of
Texas, and Cobb, of Missouri, the Re
publicans being Brosius, of Pennsylvania,
and Haugen, of Wisconsin. Mr.
Cox says the subcommittee will hold
daily meetings until it has agreed to
some measure to be reported to the
full committee or has demonstrated the
impossibility of reaching such an
agreement. In addition to the finan
cial bills introduced at tbo last session
tho subcommittee will considor the plan
for increasing the ourrenoy of the
National banks and for the exemption
of the State bank onrronoy from Federal
taxation, .under specified conditions,
proposed by Secretary Carlisle and
endorsed by President Cleveland. TJn
less there is a vory decided change in
tbe attitndo of members of tho com
mitteo thero is vory little probability
of an agreement being reached, more's
tbe pity, for something ought to be
Chairman Bland, of tho House Coin-ago
committee, says he will endeavor
to get that committee to report his
free coinage bill to tho House, and that
if the committoo does so the bill .will
certainly pass the House. While it is
known that a majority of tbe coinage
committco favor free coinage, there
are several of thorn who would not voto
to, report tbe bill to the House at tbo
last session, becauso thoy know it could
not possibly become a law. Whether
any of theso gentlemen have changed
their minds remains to be seen.

This condition of things, howover, is
not indicativo of want of harmony or
arbitrariness on tho part of either tho
big parties in interest. Both tho Illinois
Central and Louisville and
looked to reap commeroial advantage
by using different portions of tho
Chesapeake, Ohio and Southwestern,
Tbo former wauled that pieco of tho
line extending from Fulton to Mem

could havo utilized tho other portions,
both for Its own carrying business and
as leased property to tho ing four.

MONTHLY CROP REPORT.
The reports of tho correspondents to
this offlco as to the area of land sown to
wheat vary very widely somo of them
placing it aa low down as fifty per cent,
one-halt of an average crop. But
taking a resumo of all tho reports, tbe
reduction will not be aa great as many
farmers bad anticipated. The long
continued drought retarded fall plowing,
which cansed the crop to be put in
very late, and in many places tbe farm-era
failed to sow aa mnch as they expected.
The acreage ia placed at 83
per cent. The condition of tho crop at
present is reported aa looking badly.
The crop was sown lato; the wheat was
a long timo germinating; came up vory
badly muoh of it perished for the want
of moisture. Tbe plant is very small
and tender to go into winter, especially
it it has to encounter as many trials as
it bad to contend with last winter; bnt
if it comes through aa well as tbe last
crop, tbo farmer should be satisfied.
Tbe Government statistician says: "Tbe
crop of 1894, in somo of tbo States, is
greater than the phenomenal crop of
1891." Tho yield in Kontncky ia not so
large, but tho quality was rarely, if
ever, excelled. A large number of tbe
reports wero written on tho first of tbe
month, and nearly all give a very distressing
account of tho long continued
drought, but that they were having a
fine rain on tbat day. Tbo rain seems
to have been general not sufficient to
fill tbo ponds and start tbo springs, but
has filled up tho holes in tho creeks and
and branches, and has done an immense
amount of good. Tho condition of tbe
wheat crop, December first, ia placed at
77 per cent
Cobn. The November retnrns for
corn mako tho general average per acre
in bushels 38. Tho lato frosts have
beon favorable to riiiening and drying
up corn principally on low lands and
late planted corn. The cbangca reported
from last month, although not
materially different, are for tho better
as a number of correspondents report
tbat oorn is shocking out mncb
better than was anticipated. A correspondent
from Jefferson county writes
mo tbat he had in cultivation three
hundred acres of corn, and ha finds, on
shucking it out, that it will yield 13
barrels per aore. In the connty of
Jcssamino tbe crop is certainly very
fino. Tho distillers havo bongbt ten
thousand barrels at two dollars per barrel,
and a party baa purchased seven
thousand fivo hundred barrels at tho
same price for a firm in St. Louis. As
I remarked in my last report tbat we
bad mado more oorn with less rain than
was ever made before, owing largely to
tho mode and manner of cnltivation.
Nearly all tbe Southern States report
good crop, and tbe November returns
from tbe Western States show slight
Tobacco. There haa been very little
tobacco stripped to thia date. Tbe
weather has been so dry and cold there
has not been a season until reoontly.
Tbe estimated nnmber of pounds per
aero is placed at 833. Tho quality is
placed at 90 per cent.
Hoos. Quite a number of countries
report that a great many hogs have
died from cholera and other diseases.
There is still reported a shortago in tbo
erop. It is placed at 83 per cent. All
other kinds of stock reported healthy
and in very fair condition for winter.
