h President Harbison only knew the
Maysville contingent that is opposed te
him simply because its members were

ten offices there will be harmony, and
net until then.
There was, a few months preceding
the'iast Congressional electien'', nn irre
pressible Democratic demand for a Navy
that would be a credit and a defense te
the Natien; and yet th present Deme
'cratie Heuse has just voted te build
only one war vessel! The Republican
Senate did better by ordering an even
dozen. 80 you can see which of the
two parties can be depended upon te
scarry out their premises.
By a decisive vote the Republican
Senate has put itself en record as
strongly in favor of continuing te in
crease the first line of the Natien's de
fense the Navy. Mr. Hale's amend
Kent te the naval appropriation bill was
wkpted in Committee of the Whole by
,SS te 13 and the bill, as amended, was

TnE books of the Treasury Depart
ment at Washington ehewed en the
30th of last month that the Government
was ahead en the Issne of -' shinplnsters'
during the years 1802-07, inclusjve, just
$15,280,071 93. That is te say, there
was just that amount that had never
been redeeined. Much of it, of course,
has been hopelessly destroyed aud much
mere will be forever hoarded as
souvenirs or in curie collections. The
entire annual redemption of this old
paper fractional currency does net new
exceed $3,000 nnd that amount is
rapidly decreasing. The Government
made money in its issue of "shin-
plasters," just as it new makes money in
its subsidiary coin.
Just new Democratic editors are read
ing the riot act te Democratic Congress
men for the disposition they show te
spend the people's money. What de
Democratic editors expect? What Is
the use of talking about premises of re
trenchment and reform? Say the Demo
cratic candidates did premise te cut
down expenses nnd were elected en
these premises. Don't Democratic edit
ors knew that such premises apply only
te the expenditures in ether Districts?
Don't they knew the finest way in the
world for a Democratic Congressman te
get solid with his constituents is te tell
them, when he is running, hew much of
the Government's meney he will save
for them, and when he is elected hew
much of it he will spend for them? If
they don't they ought te. Take the
present Congress for instance. A ma
jority composed largely of men who
were never in Congress before, with
records te make, what mere could be ex
pected of them than that they should
show their leve for the people who
elected them than by securing large
slices from the Government pie for the
districts which heretofore had gene hun
gry because their Representatives had
been neglectful or stingy? Nothing.
Se when it came te voting appropria
tions, these amatuers at legislation took
counsel together and agreed among
themselves that Podunk should have
something and Bnngtewn should have
something and Slimville should liae
something, aud the way te get it was
for each te scratch the ether's back and
get it. They are bound te have it, tee,
for most of them want te come back, aud
money talks particularly Government
money. Mr. Helman may yell a lung
loose and weep a tubful of tears ever
appropriations for ether Districts than
his own but the Democrats are needing
the cash and they are going te have it,
even if they have te make a Trillion
Congress te get it. Nothing can check
it except a Republican Congress.
