The Rome yesterday did not abound
in brilnaut fielding or bittiug. Neither
were there a gtent mauy errors
made, yet it is just one of
those games when you oan't
plaoo the direct responsibility on any
particular persou, so in this inetauce
the umpire, Mr. Mitchell, is as mnoh at
fii 1111 as auy one else, and probably
more so, for be was not as wide awake
yetterday as be usually is, aud many u
Btriko was thrown orer the plate by
Brandt that iu the writur'a opinion
should hare beou called strikes, yet
the umpire thought differently aud
ruled olherwise, aud t hen, too, tha
"Truckers"' failed to hit the ball
safe at critical stages. They hit
the ball bard enongh, but some?
how or other the sphero would
go plump iu tho opposing Holder's
bauds and you know the rest.
Today the Portsmouth team taokle
the "Bluebirds" for a series of three
games in tho Capital City, and if the
home team oan got two out of the three
the "rooters" will be perfeotly satisfied
aud will wear a "didn't 1 toll you so"
kind of an air, and if the Hicbmonds
should lose all throe of the games, why
the Portsmouth players wonld bo met
us their rottirn with a brass band aud

play, Btioh as would boat become the
return of tho conquerors.

in tho little town of Farmington was in
There was ono old Indian who failed
to make a purchase, however, and after

possess somo sort of conveyance started
him on a diligent search After visiting
all tho places where vehicles were sold
without success be Dually leurncd of a
conveyance which, from the description,
completely overshadowed anything iu
point of elegance ever sold before and
tho ptineoHsiou of which would render
nil tho other Indians wild with envy.
Ho sought thu owner, who proved to be
tho towu undertaker, and opened ncgo-.
tiations for tho puroliaso of the vehicle.

wanted to obtain his hearse. The thought

Tho visit of Genernl Fitzhngh Leo
has started a story which he tuldou him?
self several years ago, and which is a
good illustration of the love the Confed?
erate soldiers 1 tore toward General Robert
E. Lee. As it is well known, General
Fitshugk Leo was at tho head of tho
cavalry, which Was much envied by
tho infantrymen-, who had to walk
through tiio mud and dust.
After General Robert Loo had surren?
dered, General Fitzhngh I-ioe rndo away
from Appomattox. Whilo riding through
a luuu ho met an old North Carolina
"Ho, thoro!" cried General Lee.
"Wherefore yon going?"
"I've been, off on a furlough, and am
now going back to jivin (ienerul Boh
Loo," replied tho old soldier.
"Yon needn't go back, but can throw
your pun away and return homo, for
??Leo n surrendered?"
"That's what I said," said General
"It must bavebeon that damned Fita

contempt and walked on.?Louisville
Whilo standing in tho rotunda of tho

Tho iuaccurocics whioli Governor Mc?
Kinley indulged in in his recont Hurt
fjrd speech continno to excite comment
und criticism. Among tho very glaring
niisstatomenta was that which nlleged
that tho Harrison administration ut the
closo of its form of ofticr> ?'tnrncd over
to Mr. Cleveland's administration $184,
It is woll known that on tho 20th of
February, 1803, just lil days before tho
expiration of President Harrison's term,
thu then secretary of tho treasury, Mr.
Charles Foster, instructed tho chief of
tho bureau of engraving and printing to
prepare plates for the issue of bunds to
supply an iuiponding treasury deficiency.
Tho fact was fust brought to notice by
tho Kansas City Times and bos sinco
been widely published by tho leading
newspapers of tho country.
But t?...t is not tho only evidence in
contradiction of Governor McKinley's
mis-statement of facts. On tho 2.0th of
February, 1803, only a week beforo tho
expiration of Harrison's term of oflice,
Secretary of tho Troasury Foster ap?
peared beforo a committee of congress
and stated that "while there la no fear
of a bankrupt treasury the situation is
1 one demanding serious, consideration"
and added that ho thought "trwro would
be a surplus of $17,000,000 on July 1,
There is an ancient but not commend?
able code of morals which holds that
"a lio woll stuck to is as good as the
truth," but that was at a time when
records were inaccessible. Governor Mc?
Kinley, who is a lost century statesman,
seems still to tulhero to that idea, but
he's not likely to convince the public in
the face of the facts.?Kansas City
DEFICIENCY OF REVENUE.
The McKinley Tariff Aet Wholly Itespon
Bible?Repeal of the Sugar Duty.
The deficiency of the lust two years
has often boon attributed to a lack of
revenue under the present tariff. There
is no ground for that statement. The de?
ficiency of revenue as compared to ex?
penditures may be absolutely and wholly
attributed to tho tariff net of 1SU0, com?
monly known as tho McKinley bill, nud
to the increase of expenditure incurred
by the sumo congress which passed that
act. For many years prior to tho tariff
of 1890 tho sugar duties had yielded a
revonuo to tho government equal to 01
cents per head of tho population. Had
that almost wholly revena6 tax contin?
ued to. the present date it would havo
yielded ?revenue in. tie period which
has elapsed since its repeal of aDfjUt
Tho country would also have been
saved tho payment oat of a deficient
revenuo of au unlawful bounty to sugar
planters of about $30,000^000. It is true
that tho panic which was brought on by
tho silver craze, coupled with the un?
certainty which always eusnes from de?
ficient import duties, pending a change
of tariff, especially whou the measure is
long delayed in congress, might have re?
dnced the consuming power of tho peo"
plo as to sugar as it has also distinctly
reduced the consuming power of thopco
plo in respect to liquors and tobacco^
thoreby again diminishing revenuo,
That rednctiou wonld, however, have
been small, and in any event, except for
the repeal of the revcnno tax on sugar in
181)0, tho treasury would have reooivsd
n rovonuo from it at least double tho
amount of tho subsequent de?oiency.-?
