to hear that it made him sick.
The mountain air or something else in
Vermont has had a maddening effect on the
hot blood of the Iroquois chief from Illi
nois. John Logan became excited in a
speech down there the other day. Listen:
"If I had the power, 60 help me God, bayo
nets or bludgeons would be used until
every ku-klux and every bulldozer was
suppressed and subdued." John, in the
beat of his ardor as usual forgot his gram
mar. Tnis contest is in fact, between the
people, endeavoring to regain the political
power which rightfully belongs to them
and to restore the pure, simple, economical,
constitutional government of our fathers'
on the one side and a hundred thousand
Federal office holders and their backers,
with place and power, determined to re
tain them at all hazards, on the other.
English's letter ot reception.
Senator Doolittle told an anecdote
during his speech at Indianapolis which
fully illustrates the character ot Mr. Gar
field. Shortly after aiding in the swindle
of Mr. Tilden out of the presidency, as a
member of the electoral commission, he
rnet Hon. Carter Harrison, then a member
of congress, but at present the mayor of
Chicago. Mr. Harrison said: "Garfield,
how could you do it?" Mr. Garfield re
plied: "Carter, if you held the cards
wouldn't you have played them?" Garfield
not only played the cards, but used a "cold
deck" in tho game.
The Italian government having squeezed
ail it can out of the beggars of Italy, has
turned its attention to the nobles. A law
has been passed which places a premium
on every title of nobility. A prince must
pay an annual tax of 40,000 francs, a mar
quis 30,000 francs, and so on down the
scale, the amount of the tax being in pro
portion to the importance of the title. The
fleet of this law will be to put an end to
that class known as the nobility. Rather
than pay so heavy a tax, the nobles will
dispense with their titles. Very many of
them are not in u condition, financially, to
pay any tax, however light it may be.
A very interesting question is agitating
the prison officials of the Pennsylvania
penitentiary. It is who owns the diamonds
of Colonel Ralph Rollins. This man
Rollins was one ot tho most notorious
sharpers that ever figured in the criminal
istory of this country. Ho died in the
penitentiary the other day, and was buried
in the Potter's Field. In the handle of his
Bhaving brush, which he usd while in pri
son, $10,000 worth of diamonds were found.
There were forty-two stones in all, and they
had the appearance cf having been, at one
time, set in a necklace or brooch. They
were undoubtedly stolen, and the question
now is, whose property are they.
WHY NOT, IP THE OPPORTUNITY
There is no dispute that Garfield receiv
ed $3,000 for his aid in putting through
the infamous DcGolyer pavement contract
by which the government was greutly
swindled. He was chairman of tho com
mittee of ways and means, and as chairman
saw that the necessary appropriation was
made fur the payment of this infamous
DeGulyer pavement contract. Ho was in u
position that made it his duty his solemn
duty- his sworn duty to guard with tho
utmost vigilancj the people's money. As
it were, he held the keys to that money

the jobbers a warrant for their swag.
Chobteri Randolph county,
If. as chairman ot tno committee on
ways and means, Garfield's scruples
could bo overcome for so small a money
consideration with reference to a pavin,
job, arc you thereby furnished a guarantee
that Garfield, if, unfortunately he should
bo elected president, could bo relied on os
the protector of the people's rights and
money ns against jobbers and monopolists?
We think it safe to assume that a man who
will be false to the people for a money con
sideration m one place of public trust will
be false in any ctherplace of public trust
and that the higher tho office, with larger
opportunities, the dungcr is not lessened,
that he will he false to tho people to a
corresponding extent, In other words, if
Garfield as chairman of the committee of
ways and means would sell his influence in
a given case for $3,000, why would he not,
if the opportunity offered, sell his influence

He was taken to tho hospital, and when
he recovered sufficiently, he said that he

"Please, please, raise the window," he
pleaded; "it will not be for long, and I
want to hear the birds sing this morning.
Raise the window, good sister; I have
something to tell you."
With some misgivings the sister did as
she was requested, and the patient dragged
himself upward with great pain until his
arm rested upon the sill.
Then he spoke with difficulty.
"This is the second day of March, is it
not, sister? Oh what a happy day it was
to have been for me.

The Popularity of the Equitable Life Assurance Society,
indicated by the fact that for Eleven years its average an

Company in the world, is due, in a great measure, to its well
known promptness in the payment of Death Claims, audits

equitable claim exists.
As a GUARANTEE of this, and to counteract the perni
cious influence of a technical policy, adhered to by many
companies, the Equitable makes ALL ITS POLICIES, old and
