THE CLIMAX
FRENCH TIPTON Wm GWHITE
WEDNESDAY DECEMBER 7 1SS7
M Sadi Garnot is the new Pres
ident of France vice M Grevy
resigned
Tlie Back Paj and Bounty
Claims Division of the Treasury
Department shows that 25000
olaims were filed before it for ad
judication the past year
We have now begun to have
fears of Mr Clevelands re-election
since Henry George the
prime New York labor crank says
that there is no doubt about Cleve
lands success in 1888
Congress is in session with the
lollowing caucus nominations
For Speaker John G Carlisle of
Kentucky Clerk John B Clark
of Missouri Sergeant-at-Arms
John P Leedom of Ohio Door
keeper A B Hurt of Mississippi
Postmaster Lycurgus Dalton of
Indiana Chaplain W H Milburn
Mr Carlisle is not troubled
over the Thobe contest Refer
ring to the case last Wednes
day he said I do not give the
matter a thought The contest is
based upon the most flimsy ground
imaginable and I shall pay no at
tention to it To members who
have asked my opinion as to the
merits of Mr Thobes case I have
said that I was perfectly satisfied
to leave the whole affair in the
hands of the Committee on Elec
tions After they have read the
evidence and brief of Mr Thobe
I shall not fear the result
The Post Oflice Department for
the first time since the reduction
from the 3 cent to a 2 cent stamp
has reached the point where it is
self sustaining It was a common
thing in the past for Congress to
be called on to appropriate from
5000000 to 15000000 for de
ficiencies until last yenr when
it was reduced to 4000000
Now it is nothing and in anticipa
tion of its revenues exceeding its
expenditures United States
Treasurer Hyatt in his report
prepared for Congress recom
mends that the surplus Postal
revenue be turned into the Treas
ury like any other public money
AX IMPORTANT BILL
Next to tariff revision the most
important measure to come before
the next Congress is the bill of
fered by Congressman McOreary
t promote the commercial re
lations between the United States
and Mexico Central America and
Soeth America Those three
countries are vast in territorial
extent and conduct an
important trade Their trade
grows greatly with every year
and foreign countries receive the
advantage
The current of trade should be
changed to the United States and
the McOreary bill is designed to that
end A railroad already extends
to the City of Mexico and beyond
and should ba encouraged to pro
coed through Central America
and as far into South America as
climate and produce will permit
What a vast receptacle would the
great South American countrv
prove for the surplus products of
ine united states The line stock
men would be among those most
benefitted by opening up that
country
It is a scheme of magnitude
and one worthy the consideration
of the coming Congress
Should Governor McCreary
swcceed in the passage of his bill
the international conference
for which the bill provides would
be the means of astonishing the
people of the United States bv
the disclosure that millions of
money annually go to foreign
countries for products that are
produced in the United States
The United States must have
the trade of the remainder of the
western continent
TARIFF IDEAS
The Washington Post has been
talking with the Congressmen
on the subject of tariff and finds
OHCoaragement The Post says
Of the few Democrats who have
aided with Mr Randall now
in the city Mr McAdoo Mr
Stahlnecker Mr Wilkens Mr
Merriman and Mr Lawler are
quoted as experiencing somewhat
of a change of heartThe sentiment
of the Northwestern Congressmen
is that the free trade sentiment is
growing in that section Demo
cratic Representatives from Min
nesota and Michigan have the
highest confidence that their two
states can be made Democratic
upon the Revenue reform issue
Mr Lyman of Ohio a Republican
although he acknowledges that he
is a protectionist comes out for
a reduction of the revenue Many
other Republicans like Mr Lyman
agree that something must be
done with the tariff though a few
like Messrs Sawyer and Bacon of
New York and JacKson of Penn
sylvania think that nothing will
be done at this session Many
ways of reducing the surplus are
suggested Quite a number of
Congressmen including Rep
resentatives Catcbings of Missis
sippi Snively of Indiana Taul
bee and Caruth of Kentucky and
Abbott of Texas favor a compro
mise such as taking the tax off
tobacco and reducing the tax on
fruit brandies The proposition
to take the tax off whisky hardly
finds a supporter The question
cf putting sugar on the free list
finds some advocates but mainly
among Republicans The Louis
iana Congressmen to whom this
it a very vital question say that
their state is divided the northern
portion being m favor of free
sugar and the gulf section opposed
tiit The Democratic sentiment
Is largely in favor of increasing
tlte free list adding to it salt
1 timber anl the necessaries of life
Representative Bynum of Indi
ana thinks -that acood bid to re
duce the tariff can be passed
without the support of Mr Kan
dall and he adds that the Repub
licans of the West and Northwest
are beginning to feel that they
can not longer oppose 6uch a
measure with political safety
Representative Turner of Kansas
comes forward with a new prop
osition to subsidize exported
grains
LITERARY NOTES
Harpers Xagazine
Precious stones are not a staple of
this country 4yit an article ii Harpers
Christmas number nu this subjeecl
furnishes much interesting informa
tion in regard to such gems as have
been found It is written by George
F Kunr the leading americau author
ity on this oubject Diamonds of poor
quality have been picked up in America
outside of jewelers shops but Mr
Kunz makes it clear that the recent
alleged discoveries of these precious
things in Kentucky amount to nothing
But sapphires however and spinel
who will find the lost bed of them in
Orange County crystals of topaz
beryls garnets the finest in the world
tourmalines amethysts and turquolees
are obtained In several localities and
in considerable profusion The most
striking feature of the article is the
lithographed page of the gems
Doubtles it Is the best magazine lith
ograph of its kind ever produced The
usual number of impressions for color
on such work does not exceed balf a
dozen but surely twenty must have
been needed to get the fine effect of
the gems on this sheet It is a new
departure for Harpers colored pages
Frank Leslies Sunday Magazine
The December number of Frank
Leslies Sunday Magazlue closes the
twenty second volume It contains
the semi annual index from which a
good idea of the number and value of
the articles in the volume may be
obtained The number contains in
teresting articles on Gardens by
Walter Edgar McCann on Lln
nieus and Upsala University by
Sarah K Bolton on Old Stagecoach
Days by H W De Long on Old
New Orleans and on Fairy Land
Science by Christian Beld all fully
and even profusely illustrated The
last article is descriptive of certain por
tions of North Caroliua which ought
to be better known The two serial
stories are continued and a short story
and several pretty poems are Included
The number ends with a vigorous
hymn tune by C Wenham Smith
which is set to the hymn Brightly
Uleams Our Banner This is one of
the best
Scribners

Dickens Land will appear in the
Christmas Scribners by Edwin
Percy Whipple the late critic and
lecturer who was one of the most ar
dent admirers ot the genius of Charles
Dickens H U Banners story is en
titled The Zadoc Pine Labor Onion
and is said to be filled with humor and
genial satire exposing the absurdity of
the foreign ideas about labor and capital
which tave found a foothold among
workingmen in this country E H
Blashfield the well known painter
and his wife who have been frequent
residents and close students of Florence
