At last the Democrats acknowledge
that the present tariff law will not pro
vide sufficient revenue to meet the
needs of the government. The ac
knowledgement was openly made this
week in both Ilouse and Senate, and
really amounts to putting in a plea of
guilty of inefficiency for the Democrat
ic party. Yet they still pretend to
think that the people can be bambooz
led into glying the Democratic party
an opportunity to put the country still
deeper into the hole, when the Repub
lican party 'with its unbroken record
of good management of tho govern
ment's business and prosperity for all
classes of our citizens stands ready to
again take charge and put a stop to the
increase in the public debt, which has
been so great under the Cleveland ad
ministration. When Republicans charged that Sec
retary Carlisle waB witholding appro
priations made by Congress and refus
ing to pay claims against the govern
ment upon the flimsiest excuses Demo
crats denied both charges. Now comes
Senator Gorman with a statement fully
substantiating both charges and say
ing that Secretary Carlisle was obliged
to resort to such methods because of
lack of money.
Senator Squire's bills appropriating
$8d0,000 for the erection of an eques
trian statue of Gen. Grant, upon gov
ernment land in the city of Washing
ton! was this week favorably reported
to tne Senate, and Senator Squire hopes
to get it passed before Congress ad
journs. He thinks it a shame that
Congress has not long ago provided for
a Grant statue, and has done his part
towards getting one by introducing a
similar bill to the present one in sever
al Congresses, but circumstances of
one sort or another have prevented any
of them becoming laws.
Senator Sherman tripped up Senator
Gorman very nicely this week. Mr.
"Gorman had just made a speech dealing
with the enormous and alarming do?
licit in government revenues his total
was 1398,000,000 and concluded by
throwing a few boquets to himself for
having lessened the deficit some by
preventing the original Wilson tariff
bill from becoming a law, and declar
ing that he was prepared to vote for
any measure that would add $75,000,000
a year to tho revenues. Senator Sher
man promptly challenged that declara
tion by stating that tho House had
passed a non-partisan revenue tariff
bill, which would have added $50,000,1
000 a year to the revenues, and that Mr,
Gorman bad led the solid Democratic
opposition to it in the Senate. The
only answer Mr. Gorman could make
was that the bill was McEinleylsm.
He then trd to make a point by ask
ing Senator' Sherman if he would vote
Jtora chtlyon tea and coffee, but Mr.
Sherman squelched blra by replying:
"No, I will not; for I rould not put
tho whole burden of taxation upon
those who drink ten and coffee. I nm
wllllnp; to get the revenue from tho
taxation of foreign (foods." n
Senator Chandler's amendment to

resign the position of chief clerk of

The result of the Illinois Hopublican
state convention was not surprising to
anyone in Washington who had been
in a position to get an unprejudiced
statement of the sentiment of the par
ty in that state, but the declaration of
tho Republican State Convention of
Vermont for McKinley, was so great a
surprise that it created a sensation
among Republicans in Congress. What
caused the surprise was that the Ver
mont Republicans had never instruct
ed for any candidate before, not even
when it was known that the name of
Hon. George F. Edmunds, then Sena
tor, was to be presented to a national
convention, and that Speaker Reed's
friends had not even asked that he be
endorsed by tho convention. S.
About 900 people gathered in Ply
mouth church last evening to witness
the simple wedding services which
united the liycs of Miss Alice Ketter,
daughter of Chris. C. Ketter, and
Thomas Stiles Ingersoll. All day tbe
weather had been threatening but the
sun came out gloriously late in the
afternoon and before 8 o'clock tho
weather was all that the most fastidi
ous bride could desire. The wedding
was one of the prettiest and most in
teresting that have dotted the thirty
days of April and although very sim
ple in all its appointments was ex
tremely sweet and pretty. The ushers
announced the arrival of the bridal
party by fastening the long satin rib
bons along the aisles, and immediately
after the notes of thfiLohfinnrinnlinr,1'""' "ua u u, inue
sounded through tLe church. Then
the bridesmaids entered, moving slow
ly down the right aisle of the church,
looking unusually sweet and pretty in
their simple gowns of white organdie
finished about the neck with marguer
ites. Each girl also carried a large
bouquet of marguerites tied with long
streamers of white satin. The maids
met the ushers, who had come down
tho aisle at the left, at the altar and,
crossing them, took their places at the
jj i i. .i- i i. ,,.
sldo of the alter rail. After tbe maids
and ushers had taken their places the
bridegroom and Wm. James, who acted
as best man, entered meeting Rey.
Beach, the new pastor of the church,
who was.to perform the ceremony, at
the alter, where together they awaited
the bride. Preceding the bride came
two tiny flower girls, Edith and Hazel
GutCesell, dressed in fluffy gowns of
white mulle and lace, and the maid of
honor, Miss Edith Mills, of Marietta,
O. Miss Mills wore a very becoming
dress of pink organdie over pink silk
and carried pink roses. A wide fichue
of the organdie, edged with accordion
pleated ruffles was arranged gracefully
about the shoulders, and 'ending in a
ribbon belt The bride entered with
her father. Her gown was exquisitely
beautiful in Its simplicity. It was made
of white satin and was trimed with a
fall of old lace and it fitted the slender
figure perfectly. Her full tulle veil fell
in graceful folds to the very edge of
the train and was caught high on the
coiffure with a bunch of llllies of the
yalley. She carried a large boquot of
tbe same flowers tied with white rib
bons. Nothing could have made a
more effective setting for the bridal
group than the simple arrangement of
palms and llllies about the altar. The
palms were arranged ivo form a partial
canopy above the party and amllas
and ferns trimmed the altar rail.
Misses McCollom, Prouse. Rollo and

Messrs. Robert Ford, Sam Morris, Dr.

ers. After the ceremony a small re
