II. P. MAXWELL,
For tho three months ending
March 31, 1891, as compared with the
same period last year, there was a de
crease in our exports of about 38 per
cent, the heaviest decline being in
farm products. This is a direct result
of thoMcKinley tariff act, which the
democrats in Congress predicted
would curlail our foreign markets.
No wondet Mr. IMaine is struggling
-0 hard to find new markets by means
of reciprocity; he knows that oursur
plus farm products have got to find a
market some whore or universal
bankruptcy will stare us in the face

Senator Reagan's resignation to nc
cept the chairmanship of the New
Texas Railroad Commission, while it
had been discussed among his friends
as a possibility ever since the Com
mission was created, was neverthe
less a genuine surprise to the public,
and the naming of Mr. Horace ChiN
ton ns his successor was a still greater
surprise. Texaus now here speak in
the highest terms of Mr. Chilton, but
they do not disguise their disappoint
ment at his selection. They think,
and say, that tho national rcputa
tion of Mr. Mills is such as should
have entitled him to a refusal of the
position. Owing to his candidacy
for the Speakership his friends ex
press a doubt as to whether he would
have accepted the appointment.
General John C. Black, ex-Commissioner
of Pensions, is visiting
Washington, and he does not deny
that in certain contingencies his name
may be presented to the Democratic
National convention next year by the
Illinois delegation. Tike program as
outlined by one of his friends is some-
thing like this: Senator Palmer
having denied the use of his name
under any circumstances, it has been
determined by some ot the leading
democrats of the State, with the con
currence of Senator Palmer, that in
case it becomes evident that the head
of the ticket will go to the West.they
will present and urge the claims of
General Black for the nomination,
and if an Eastern man heads the
ticket General Black will be pressed
for second place. He was a candi
date before the convention for Vice
President in 1888.
If you presented a check at a bank
and it was paid in dimes and nickels
you would naturally suppose that
the cash in that bank was running
very low. Well, the Treasury, which
when it came into the hands of the
republicans a little more than two
years ago, contained a cash surplus of
more than a hundred million of dol
lars, is now depositing in National
banks subject to its checks for current
expenses the small silver currency
that it has accumulated during sever
al years, and it has to pay the banks
to take it too. And even with this it
is feared that when the quarterly
payment of about $30,000,000 for pen
sions is made on July 1, that the
Government strong box will be en
Secretary Foster is beginning to
realize the situation, and he has be
come so alarmed at the falling off in
the receipts from customs duties and
the consequent lessening of the al
ready almost wiped out surplus that
he has decided to allow the holders
of the $13,000,000 4J per cent bonds,
principally national banks, which
will mature Sept. 1, to have them in
definitely extended with the interest
reduced to two per cent. But not
even this and the suspension of pay
ments in the sinking fund can stave
off that deficit which long-headed
democrats in Congress predicted
more man a year ago. this is a
wealthy country, but a billion dol
lars in two yeais is rather more than
it can stand, as a regular thing.
When the bargain is completed
whereby Secretary Proctor leaves the
cabinet for the Senate there's going
to be a mighty lively row in the re
publican ranks as to his successor in
the cabinet. New England will, of
of course, think she is entitled to the
place, but the Northwest will de
mand that the man be taken from
that section, and then the fun will
begin. Mr. Harrison's natural incli
nation will be to put the place where
it will make the most Harrison votes
in the nominating convention, but
he will have to play it very fine to
keep from losing as many as he
The Secretary of War has given the
contract for improving the entrance
to Galveston, Texas, harbor to a Dal
las firm. The price for the work is
$3,469,710, which is the largest
amount ever paid on a single con
tract for harbor improvements.
Somebody succeeded in stealing
copies of the Attorney General's brief
in the Sayward case, which by the
way has been postponed until the
October term of .the Supreme Court,
several days ago, but it wasn't of
much use to the thief, for no news
paper would buy it at any price, and
the opposition lawyers had been fur
nished with advance copies. An in
vestigation is being made.
No sooner did the Dispatch, which
is now the official junketing boat of
the administration, return with Sec
retary Elaine than it was boarded by
Secretary Tracy and steamed away
for a pleasure trip from which it has
not yet returned.

Getting Their Eyes Open,
The Manchester Titties has possed
as the staunch friend of the Alliance.
It was the only paper in the State,
we believe, save the Toiler, which
advocated the nomination of Mr.
Buchanan, and was not very heartily
aided by many of them in support
ing him after his nomination. In
view of the above facts the following
from the Times ot last week is
eminently worthy the consideration
of Alliance members:
The people of this state, and es -
pecially the farmers, have been led
to believe that every man not directly
engaged in agriculture is an enemy
to the farmers, and by said doctrine
being instilled into their minds, there
has been created a feeling of jealousy
against people who live in towns.
This is all wrong, and unless stopped
is calculated to injure our State in
more ways than one. If farmers
would stop to think, they would at
once see that merchants are not their
enemies; they could not afford to be,
even if they had an inclination that
way, for on the prosperity of the far
mer depends their own hope of suc
cess. The Interests 01 farmer, law
yer, merchant, and laborer are inden
tical and one cannot suffer without
affecting the other. ; The prime ob
ject of those who are endeavoring to
array farmers against town people is
to get offices for themselves. The
leaders are not farmers; they never
were, and only use farmers for selfish
purposes. They are politicians, and,
as a rule, a set who have been unable
to get office continuously from the
democratic or republican parties. In
this immediate section the farmers
are getting their eyes open as to the
true state of affairs, and are opposed
to the sub-treasury and similar
schemes. They object to the prosti
tution of their order by designing
politicians, and will remain loyal to
the democratic party."
