i,e well to reerse the order. The matter
of tariff revision should be first taken
up, with the understanding that when
once accomplished the temporary relief
needed should ba provided by tho adop
tion of the second and first named plans.
If the temporary makeshift Is to bo
first adopted Mr. Cleveland will con-,
slder his point gained and there will be
no chance vhatoer of securing perma
nent relief through tariff legislation He
would go on running tho government on

Something will have to be done to
strengthen the treasury, of course; but
let the measure for permanent tellef be
tho first to be sent to the president. If
he shall refuse to give it his counte
nance then the people will know where
the blame belongs.
Tho Ilepublltan party should have no
hesitation In again putting Itself on
record on the lines of Its established
policy. The people have returned It to
power In congress with the expectation
that relief would be brought to the
country on those lines. They will be
dlsappolnted If the session Is to pass
with no serious effort to ro-estnbllsh
buslness-llko conditions In the place of
the present money borrowing state of af

tho direction of a bold prosecution of a
fixed policy, and his suggestion Is worthy

and a manual on fieo trade before htm.
Yet At this critical time, when some of
tho gravest questions that have con

No longer can every stnte Kimt wholl

have always been made by thp Uomo
crats dpflanlly and the Republicans re
signedly, chalking up tho full quota of
Southern votes on the Democratic .lde
of the slate.
Hut now that Is changed, whatever
may have been the combination of rea

Kentucky Is not the only state upon
which the Democratic manageis onnnot
rely with old time confidence.
rifteen years ago Colonel Ingersoll de
clared that ho would ix'llove In hades
when Kentucky went llepubllcan, so
proverbial was the benighted condition
of that .state. Xovv Kentucky has gone
llepubllcan and though tho colonel Is
still recalcitrant, yet he ha, tho best
of reasons for being so Until the recent
elections, there was n groat big "D"
Hying from tho llagstaffs of the en pi toll
of every Southern state, so that a blrds
eyo view of DIio made thee letters the
most prominent features of the land
scape. Trom the llngstnff at Nashville
there was a "D" and another at Uiank
fott; n htlalght line drawn between the
two would give n lesult something like
this D D, which pretty acuratelj
leprcented the situation. Tho other
states wcio similarly paired. But now
the "D's" are disappearing and giving
plaH? to great big "It's," so that the
blidseyo view of the landscape gives

There Is some complaint among the
inllroflds that business Is .slow because
products are being held back. They Fay
they made ample provision for a rush
of tratllo by Imilding new cars and put
ting old ones In good condition, but they
now find they have no use for the supply
on hand. There is an imprcs-don that
farmers are holding back tholr grain for
better prices, and that by and by, when
they can hold no longer tho expected
rush to market will set in.
If the grain Is really being held back
for higher prices it would be well for
tho holders to look wil nbout them and
see if eistlng conditions warrant them
in their course. As a matter of fact the
control of prices has been put very
largely into the hands of foreign con
sumers by the legislation of the last con
gress Kven if the surplus we have to
sell this year is less than It was last, it
is tho price offered for that surplus that
governs the value of the whole crop. We
are exporting very little, to be sure, but
it 1s that little that counts In the market
quotations. Whenever the price drops
low enough to compete with rival sellers
In tho foreign market e.ports sot in;
then up goes the price at the home ele
vators and exports have to stop
The foreign buver can get all he wants
In sliver using countries. He sells his
goods here, und because ho can get
gold without extra cost he takes it. Tho
mnikcts of the world are open to the
United States ready to sell anything that
Is wanted here, but thev aie not buying
the products of our farms, and our own
people are squeezing along from hand to
mouth waiting for better times, unnblo
to buy as much as they want.
There are those who predict booming
prices for wheat, corn nnd cotton be
fore the opening of spring, but the fann
er who Is not independent of store bills
and Interest notes can scarcely afford
to take the chances of it.
Kansas Cltv courts have hardly been

To the Editor of the Journal
John Stewart Mill was a generation ago
classed with Huxley and Darwin as the
three great Infldnl sclentis-fa of nreat Urlt
aln. Of these vim was distinguished as
tho finest logli ian and was undoubtedly
the most profoundly .ducated man Hngland
ever produce 1. To this must be added that
his opponents, n-. wen as followeis, gave
him credit for ab-olii'o honest and perfect
fairness in his st iteniont of an opponent's
position. The following, from his "Three
Kasays on Itellgion," lb as a gentle shower

"Above all, the most valuable part of tho

lost to humanl Kor It Is Christ rather
