A wFTr.nx congressman who lias been
interviewed at Washington gives his view
ot the stalwart programme, lie declares
that Grant will be nominated at Chicago by
acclamation or not at all. That is, his
friends will know beforehand exactly how
many votes are pledged to him. If there
is not a majority his name will be with
draw n. If a majority is secured to him,
Blaine and Sherman will not enter a useless
contest or resist a foregone coclusion.
Cait. Eads Iras been telling the congress
men at Washington that he could make the
Mississippi river so great an inland water
way that ocean ships of thirty feet draught
con W load at St. Louis as easily ns at New
York, and that the effect of his plan would
be to revolutionize the commerce and
change the political combination of the
countrv. But those who are opposed to
Copt. Eads scheme say that lie is over anxi
ous to get n good contract out of the gov
ernment. Hence all this sweet talk.
Tukiik is danger that the present era of
unparalleled prosperity will lead the Amer
ican people into the old habits of extra?n
panee. The statistics show that while our
exports for the calendar year 1870 were
125.000,000 greater than during the previ
ous year, our imports were $rfl,000,i)()0
greater. The figures for 1880 will, doubt
less, make a still more unfavorable show
ing. We arc now exchanging our products
for the luxuries of European manufacture,
such as wines and silks. At the present
rate, the balance of trade will, ere long, be
once more against us.

Simeon WaiKcr, or nidiview, The Piuic
Register notices that Mr. Walker was one
of the pioneers of Illinois, coming to the
Mate from Georgia in 1800, and settling
with his parents in the vicinity of Belle
ville. He lived to be seventy-eight years
of age, and was for many years a zealous
preacher in the Methodist church. Rapid
ly the early settlets of the state are passing
away, a large number of them having died
in the past year. The venerable Simeon
Walker was one of the moss worthy of the
courageous men who laid the foundation of
The Brooklyn Eajlc has an editorial ex
plaining why the cjuality of lager beer has
been so bad in this country of late years.
The cause of deterioration is found in the
reaction from the high prices of a few yeats
ngo which attracted capital and stimulated
competition. The tendency has been to
force down prices anu reduce profits,
luferior Weer was then brewed to offset
the loss. All this, however, has produced
oo effect in the price to the consumer.
Whether the retail dealer has paid $H per
barrel for his beer, as ut present, or (10
ati l $11, as formerly, he has sold it at
five cent a glass, The only way in which
the consumer is affected ii in paying the
same price for poorer beer. It is now slat
ed that the brewers of New York city and
TSrooklvn have united with their
western competitors in a movement
to advance the price of beer,
Thev want 810 Per barrel. It remains
tt be seen whether the retailer will at
tempt to cut down the size of his glasses.
The wonder is that there is not a rebellion
against much of the slop beer now sold,
and it will come sooner or later. The
brewers who put out a bad article will
eventually be driven out of the business
and the surviving concerns will be those
which maintain their integrity and reputa
tion for producing good beer,

A NEW SCRIPTURAL INTERPRETA
An Anecdote by JmUe Eruce ot KcLtacky.
There were two men in a Mississippi regi
ment, commanded by Col. Stub ot Balti
more. One ot these men contended that
the Scriptures were of divine orgin, and the
other said they were of human invention,
and asked his opponent, in one of the argu
ments which they were continually having,
if he believed the story of Jonah and the
whale, to which the other replied,
"Yes." "Do you also believe that the
three Hebrews passed through the fiery
furnace without feeling the heat?'' persist
ed the infidel. "Yes," came the answer
again. "Do you believe," came sharply,
"that Samson slew all those thousand Phil
istine with the jaw bone of an ass:" It
was just alter the battle ot snuoli, ana the
believer in the biule had just had 6ome
experience in the difficulty of fighting only
four or five to one. "Well," he answered,
hesitatingly to the last home thrust, "I 1

EFFECT OF THE ISTHMUS CANAL.
The Tanama canal will discourage trans
continental railroad building and thus re
tard the growth of the far west. Every
congressman west of the Mississippi should
insist upon serving notice upon Do Lesseps
to pack his French baggage and skip out.
The Monroe doctrine, if enforced in its
true spirit, could secure this result. It
means in short, that no European govern
ment shall acquire directly or indirectly
any further ascendency in this hemisphere.
The French government in protecting a
rrench company lrom the Panama Greas
ers, would have to send ships and soldiers
and the Isthmus would virtually become a

WHICH WAY WILL THE CAT JUMP?
Evidently the Grant "boom" and the
Sherman "maneuver" have not reached
Kansas, for the Republican politicians of
that state, with a str.inge disregard for the
exigencies of these two candidates, have
decided not to hold their state convention
to elect delegates to the national convention
until the :11st of March. Kansas is not a
great state, but its vote is worth something,
and this terrible procrastination indicates
pretty clearlv that the political workers in
that state have made up their minds in
which direction it would be best to let the
