I'hQ Cincinnati Sun has gone back
sliding on a tobogan. It lived a while
as a brisk Republican paper but it lias
been bought by a Democratic company
and will now proceed as a disseminator

More than one million and a half of
dollars have collected in the post-oilire
department at New York since the in
troluction of the money onier system.
The managers of the concern stem to he
proud of the accumulation. It collects
from mistakes in money orders when the

the paper. If obstacles were removed
and the people were allowed to reclaim
what they have been robbed of, the sum
w ould be greatly reduced.
Oovernor Foraker has been reijussted

Considerable complaint is made about

citizen it is dilferent. An old soldier
wrote to the Senator from his district at
the National Capital, saying: "If the
United States had been as slow in ex

condition when we ask for a pension,

Thy bill introduced into the Ohio
House by Mr. Johnson, of Van Wert,
by request, must have emanated from
the brain of some sarcastic statesman.
The purpose of it is to prevent the in
crease of drunkards and it provides that
it shall be a misdemeanor lor thesaloon
ist to sell or the drinker to buy unless
the latter shall have qualified himself
as a legal drinker by tiling his applica
tion with the l'robate Judge and an
nouncing his inteniion of becoming a
habitual drinker. Ilis name in full, age
and occupation would be registered in a
book open to the public and the certifi

procure liquor. The fine for an offense
would be a hundred dollars and cunts,
half the fine to go to the proaei -tiling

suck a law were passed and rigidly en
forced, sly drinkers would be in a di
