What I Know About Hardware and
What I Guess About '92.
Tho year of 1S92 promisoB to bo a
year of low prices. Cotton, corn, hogs,
pig iron and real estate aro likely to
be lower on an averago in 1892 than
they were in 1891. While I do not
look for any scarcity of loanable funds
the dominant and restless state of tho
labor element, pernicious legislation
against capital which borders on con
fiscation, and tho frequency of dishon
est failures among merohants and
bankers, has soared capital and forced
muoh of it into idleness, heneo rail
road building and other new enter
prises aro likely to bo held in aboy
anco. All kinds of labor and commod
ities will bo obeap and trade dull.

Ho said ho considered it a gross insult

that the marshal's excuso that

have been an insult, but no one will
