The strikes which occur in this coun
try are nearly always caused by the
prospects offered the laboring men for
'bettering their condition. They see
reasons that entitle them te hope for
improvement and they grew impatient
te enjoy it and strike te enforce their
demands for it. These are net the
hopes that strikers in ether countries
have any grounds for harboring.
Frem the benighted regions of Ar
kansas comes the bitter assertion that a
member of the People's party is re
garded as being "as obnoxious as a le le le
constructlen Republican." This is the
way it is telegraphed, though probably
the Arkansas Democrats liken the ob
noxious personage te an "abolitionist."
Arkansas has hardly arrived abreast of
the war period yet.
It is worthy of note that Judge
Pihster has departed from the methods
practiced by his predecessors. In the
appointment of the officers of election,
he has in several instances named a
Republican Sheriff and a Democratic
Clerk. As Is well known, the Sheriff
'has the decision of the doubtful ques
tions that may arise, the Clerk having
. no voice. Heretofore, when the Judges
could net agree, the Sheriff settled it
and tee often it was settled in a purely
partisan way. Judge Phister is te be
commended for his course, which indi
cates at least a spirit of fairness te the

The intelligent chivalry of Mississippi
has fixed up a constitutional require
ment that makes it pessible te dis
franchise black people while- allowing
illitorate whites te vote. Hut what if
there should ceme a time when a divi
sion of opiuieu arises among the chiv
nlry and each side needs the votes of the
"damniggers" in order te win? An
embarrassment might arise as te hew
the the thiug could be settled. Fer
iustance, Jenes, the nominee of the
regular Democracy, could net have been
elected in Alabama the ethor day with
such a requirement in force as that in
the Mississippi Constitution becnuse the
colored people whose votes elected him
could net have voted.
Dees Protection favor "special inter
ests?" Is it merely a scheme te "tax"
the masses for the benefit of the "fa
vored few?" Is it
merely n robbery of
Short Tariff the "plain people"
Sermons, by the "monopolist
tected by our Tariff.
Jf it is, then indeed is the faith of
the Protectionist a very peer one, nor
can there be the least justification for
such a system of extortion.
But ask the importer, nlien as he is
in business and tee often nlien, tee, in
citizenship ask him as he laughs in his
sleeve and pockets the enormous profits
reaped by stimulating foreign industries
and giving employment te foreign
workingmen, whether Protection or
Free-trade favors "special Interests."
Ask the capitalists nnd men with
fixed incomes, interested only in having
things "cheap" no matter who suffers,
if Free-trade favors no "special inter
ests." Ask the free raw material manufac
turer, wen ever by selfish considerations
of individual advantage, whether Pro
tection really only helps "special inter
ests." Ask these men, and then ndmire and
commend the righteous indignation
with which they all oppeso Protection
for no ether reason tlinu because it
favors "special interests."
Protection Is tee bread, tee liberal,
tee national a system te favor any
"special interest" in the Free-trade
sense of the term. It protects American
labor an j where and everywhere, en
farm and field, in forest and mine, en
ship nnd in factory.
But if te stimulate American indus
try, give motive te American enterprise,
add te American wealth and advocate
American doctrines nnd support for our
own citizens against the world If that

As a jurist and a man, William H.

nnd it is due te his ability and unswir

Cliolera Victims In Hnvre Hustled Uir te
tlve Cemetery lthent IK'luy.
IIavue, Sept. 2. Every morning two
big wagons drlve up te the hospital
deer and take a lead of celllns. They
return for mere until all arc carted te
the cemetery. The funeral service Is
always brief- Usually the simple
Catholic service of a few words and the
digger shovels down the earth. The
hospital people discourage any attempt
te attend the funeral en the part of
friends and relatives of these who
die. The ordinary custom is te
take the cetlln out and bury
the bodies as quickly as possible.
Where the patients are peer nnd tin
known and have no friends, several arc
piled in one grave. Where tlw family
has a plot the corpse is buried there.
The custom at Havre is net te buy a
plot outright, but te rent it for a term
of years. Among private houses where
deaths occur the authorities demand
instant burial. Three hours Is the most
ever allowed te elnpse between death
and burial, except, of course, where the
victim dies at night and can't be buried
until morning. The undertakers are
kept busy, although there are no fa fa
Each district of the city has its own
undertaker, and every person dying in
that section must be buried by him. It
is impossible te evade this. Where a
pcrseh dies in the night the undertaker
comes immediately and puts the corpse
into a leaden cetlln hermetically sealed.
All cholera victims in the town nre
buried in leaden cetllns, net in wooden
Under the elrcumstances funerals are
very quiet affairs, quickly ever, and
sparsely attended, always by a few
friends, but very few. Leaden cetllns
are believed by the people te prevent
the spread of the contagion, still most
of them are afraid. ,

Onn, Neb., Sept a II. P. Marden,
living near here, has suddenly become
aware of the possession by himself of a
mnrvoleus gift. He is able, with h'.
naked eye, te see many things en the
planet Murs that the ablest astronomers
have, as yet, failed te discover. The
planet assumes te his eye a diam
eter of about twenty inches. He
has made several observations, and
a few evenings age saw un arc
of brilliant light near the soutlv seutlv
ern pole of the planet, in what unlng
for convenience earthly nomenclature,
may be called the entarctic circle. It
is at present invisible. He at ptvsent
sees a large arc of equally brilliant
light in the north temperate zone, that
stretches from verge te verge of the
planet The strange part of it is that
