THE MoKINLEY BILIi.
Ob, yes, the MoKlnley tariff law is
destroying our foreign commerce, and
and this Is the way it is doing it. A
statement recently issued by the
Bureau of Statistics of tbo Treasury
department shows that our foreign
commerce for the fiscal year ending
J line 30 was the largest in our history,
amounting to $1,720,330,890, it alio
shows that under the first nine months
of theMcKlnley tariff law wo imported
merchandise to the value of $630,200,
005, while for the same period in the
year before our imports amounted to
only $508,709,902; nho that under the
McKluley law the goods admitted
free of duty amounted to $295,903,005
against $208,9S3,873 for the same period
in tbo year before. How the lies of
last year are going home to roost!

The National Encampment at Detroit
lias declared afterseveral years of aglta-
t!on,that the black man who was good
enough to enlist as a Union soldier
and wear the United States blue,
carry a musket or a sword, stop rebel
bullets, and be buried with the honors
of war, and have his grave covered
with flowers on Decoration Day In
case lie had lost his life in the service,
is good enough to Join the G. A. R.
and have his posts recognized by the
Baine department as the white posts.
"Now listen to this," says the New
York Independent, "you Congrega-
tlonallstsof Georgia, Episcopalians of
Vlrglula and South Carolina, and
MethodiBts of Missouri, Tennessee,
North Carolina, Florida, Georgia, Ala
bama and Texas! "Whose business is
it to set an example of righteousness?
Is it the business of the Church of
Christ Jesus, or of a humane organiza
tion! of the Lord's army, or of the
relics of any army of physical warfare!
Yet here we have a body of ruin of all
faiths and no faith, men of the world,
gamblers and profane, Irreligious and
Infidels, as well as Christians, voting In
overwhelming numbers to do right
by their humble aud despised comrades
while a Christian church, and more
than one of them, stumbles and falls
prostrate before the temptation to pass
their colored brother by on the other
side. The Church should be better
than the world, not worse, it should
magnify the brotherhood which Is in
cur Lord; it should be a light in the
world. In this case the Graud Army of
the Republic has proved Its right to the
adjective in its name, aud has set tho
right example when the Church has
more than once set the wrong example;
it has thrown policy to the dogs, and
the banner of Justice aud fraternity to
the winds, and in the namo of all the
better instincts and all the worthy
principles and practice of the Church,
we give it hearty thanks."

SUDDEN DEATH OF A PIBST
DIED IN LESS THAN FIVE MINUTES
Coroner Guldln Has Been Re
quested to Investigate tho '
Oaso A Mt. Oarmoi Man
A Hungarian named Simon Thomas died
suddenly in his boarding house In tho First
ward Inst night. The news of his death
was given to 'Squire Monaghan by tho
boarding boss and Deputy Coroner Bron
nan was at onco notified. IIo secured n
jury and visited tho houso, but concluded
not to procoed with tho inquest boforo
notifying Coronor Guldln, is tho circum
stances surrounding tho case are considered
sufllciont to warrant a post mortem.
Tho deceased was about 30 years old and
has a wifo nnd three children in tho old
country. IIo worked as a laborer In the
Ellongowan colliery. Ills follow boardors
say that ho had been in this country but
two weeks and that ho had wotked In tho
colliery only four days.
They say that whon Thomas arrived
homo from work last night ho drank half a
pint of a mixture of alcohol and camphor.
Four minutes lator ho was dead. Thero
aro many who scout the idon that tho mix
ture could not bavo had such a fatal effect.
Some aro inclined to the belief that tho
man was seized with a cramp and, as is
frequently the case among tho lower classfS
ot .Hungarians, bis companions wore too
ignorant to call a physician, or advorso to

"O, my goodness I I wouldn't givo you
