Who does not remember the howl
raised In 1N7U when the free quinine
bill became a lawP There were then
but four lirnis munufauturing quinine
n the United States. They had form
ed a "combine" under the protective
duty, and had made such arrangements
with foreign marjifart'irers that we
were forced to pay 3.f'JJ per ounce
for quinine at wholesale, they produc
ing 1,200,000 of the 2,000,000 ounce
then consumed in the United States,
the other 800,000 ounces coming from
abroad. It was said that free quinine
would ruin our manufacturers, put us
at the merey of foreign producers and
perhaps compel us to pay more for an
inferior article. i bat was the result?
The four tirms, Powers & Wcightruau,
Kosengarten & Sons, Kuastry & llatti
son and A. C. White & Co., are still
running, and the tlrat named, the
largest of all of all, having lost Its
works by lire recently, is rebuilding
them on a larger scale. The quinine
which was worth (3.52J per ounce In
1879 is now sold for 37 cents, and the
consumption baa been so increased
that not only those four tirms, but
eight others are now prospering by the

Mr. Blaine is beginning to bear from
the farms" that ho has so "unoom
monly anxious" to relieve from tax
ation for a consideration in votes. At
two meetings ol slate granges yester
day the presidents message and its
doctriues were warmly approved by
otliuial utterances. In the Deleware
state grange it was the"raaster" who
pronounced it a "logical argument"
aud appealed to his fellow-farmers to
work for a revision of the tariff. In
the state grange for Pennsylvania the
"overseer" fnude a report specifically
attacking thu tut'itf on wool, arguing
that the high tariff, baud in hand with
freight discrimination, and extortions,
was a burden to the farmer. These

about "British gold;" they are not
emissaries of the Cobdeq club; they
are not of that unspeakable order

It Is remarkable Hint President Cleve
land's message should givesatisfnetion
to all parties except a remnant of the
Democratic party. It satilies the pro
tection wing of tho Uepublicau pnrty
because they believe it weak; it is ap
proved by tho other part of the party
because they are revenue reformers; it
is received approvingly by the mug
wumps because they arc free-truders;
it is satisfactory to tho United Labor
party, and it meeU the hearty sanction
of the mass of the Democratic party.
Only the ltandall remnant of the Dem
ocratic parly oppose it and regret it.
As the coming national contest will be
on tho lines marked out by the Presi
dent's messago, there is an opportuni
ty for people to readjust their polities.
All those who favor protection should
go with the Republican party, which

believe in a revenue and tariff reform
should go with the party which will be

In the matter of dealing with the
devouring jack rabbits, laat week wit
nessed a new departure.
On the plains of Tulare county, uear
the town of Pixley, a Vabapmlfeuce
had been built with a corral at the
apex. Monday morning, November 14
several hunpred people, mostly far
mers aud their families, assembled to
engage In the rabbit drive. No fire
arms nor dogs were permitted In tbla
hunt, but men, women, and children In
vehicles aud on horseback, marshalled
by J. It. Priest, with Mr. Doran and
M. F. Pixley as bis aids, forme I a sinl
circular procession three miles long,
and began dosing In toward the open
log of the V.
As the line of drivers neared the
outer ends of the feu-je it became ap
parent that they were herding the
bares, not by hundreds, but by thou
sands, aud those who saw the boudlng
drove of lepores. as it swept over the
stubble and short alfufa where mere
was no dust, say It was a memorable
sight. Great excictement prevailed,
and as a rabbit would now and then
tnrn about, poll throngu the ranks of
yelling enemies and gallop off upou
the plain' the wisdom of having barred
out guns and pistols began to be evi
dent As the terrlfled animals ran
down the Inside of the fence on the
south side, they encountered a little
enclosure made for garden. Tbls ob
stacle occasioned a stampede. "Away
went hundreds of tbem through the
ojrdon ot drivers, and though many
were killed, it is estimated that COO or
0O0 escaped. The main body, however
ran around the projecting fence, and
kept on down the side of the V to the
corral at the apex."
When the doomed creatures had
