The Advance In Prices.
The advance in prices which has
taken place in the past five weeks is
decidedly significant. Almost every
important commodity is higher than it
was at the close of February. Wheat,
corn, cotton, pig iron, pork and
petroleum have gone up in this period.
So, too. have the shares of the lead
ing roads. Prices of some of those
articles and stocks are higher now
than they were In-fore in twelve
months. Silver has advanced faster
and farther than almost any other
thing dealt in on the speculative ex
changes. A few articles have either
remained stationary in price or have
fallen slightly, but the general drift is
strongly in the upward direction, and
promises to continue.
This is one of the indications of a
renewal of financial confidence and of
an improvement in trade. The ad-
I vance in price is due to the increased
demand, which itself is caused by the
general opinion that all the adverse
factors have been removed or have
virtually spent their force. Sentiment
counts for much in finance and busi
ness, as it does in most other matters.
When a large element of the people
begin to be convinced that trade is
about to improve, the day of improve
ment is close at hand. It is evident
j that the people in general are in this
hoefnl mood. They can give good
reasons, too. for the faith that is in
them. All the conditions which pro
duced the panic have vanished. The
silver law of 1890 has been dead a
year and a half, the inflations in
values have disappeared, and the
business carelessness due to the long

POLITICS IN A CHURCH.
The Kind of Trouble That President
Cleveland's Brother Is In.
Watertowx. N. Y., April 4. The
difference of opinion between members
of the Presbyterian Church at Chau
mout, this countv. as to the retention
of Rev. William N. Cleveland as a
pastor, took on a new form when a
meeting was held of those who are in
favor of making a change in the pas
torage. It is asserted that the meet
ing took such formal action as to in
dicate its desire that pastor Cleveland
should resign. The importar.c? of the
matter is enhanced by the fact that the
pastor is a brother of President Cleve
land, and is said to be a man of posi
tive political opinions, with Democratic
proclivities, though he has not been
generally known as an offensive par
tisan. There are two factions in the
church, one insistingonhis continuance
as their spiritual leader, and the other
firmly opposed. It happens that these
who think the church would prosper
under a nev. pastorage are Republicans.
;ind so a political caste is given to the
aJair, atli.uugh Mr. Cleveland's op
ponents disclaim that as a motive.

ELECTRIC AND STEAM POWER.
Estimates of Cost Based on Charges
at Niagara Falls.
Some time ago we remarked, with
regard to the predictions that the use
of Niagara Falls to develop electrie
power would effect a revolutionary
displacement of steam, thatsuch result
would depend on the charges made by
the power company. Recent publica
tions concerning these charges give
deciped cogency to the remark.
The charge fixed by the Niagara
Falls Power Company to consumers
on the spot is ?20 per horse-power per
annum. To consumers at Buffalo, or
points further distant is $18 per horse
power at the generator shaft, the cus
tomer to bear the loss in transmission
and conversion, and to furnish the
wire or conduit for conveying the
power to the point of consumption.
This .is likely to make the cost of
power for plants outside the immediate
vicinity of the Falls anywhere from $30
up. In this connection there is quitea
hot discussion as to the cost of gener
ating steam power in Buffalo, one
authority putting it as low as $21 per!
horse-power, while the powerconpany 's
estimates put it at $32 for ten hours.
and $41 to $(K) for twenty-four hours.
These figures indicate that, so far as
Pittsburg is concerned, it is not likely
to be disturbed by the Niagara Falls
competition. With our cheap fuel and
with first-class appliances, the cost of
steam power in this city can be made
$11 per horse-power in actual practice.
This is on the basis of automatic
stokers and engines. Of course, there
are many plants in which these figures
are not realized, but they represent
what can be done with attention to the
best methods in competition with the
introduction of a new power. If the
cost power at Niagara should lie re
duced, this estimate would permit
further reductions by the use of com
pound condensing engines.
Pittsburg need not fear the Niagara
Falls competition, therefore, so far as
the cost of power here is concerned.
As to the market for coal away from
here, it may lie a different matter so
long as railway rates make it necessary
to produce two tons of coal to get one
ton to the lake shore. But if Pittsburg
opens up waterways that will carry
coal 1(HK miles at 00 ier cent of its
cost at the mines, that will present a
cheapness of transmission not likely to
be rivaled by any meansof transmitting
To keep in tho front as against the
Niagara factor, it is Pittsburg's duty
to adopt the best ideas in the line of
smoke consumption and fuel saving at
home, anil to secure the water trans
portation which will place it above
competition in sending its coal to other
markets. Pittsburg Dispatch.
Saturday night burglars broke into
the hardware store of Edward S. Lilly.
They broke in through a back window,
the shutters of which were pried open
v. ithan iron bar or chissel. They took
three revolvers from a showcase, two
or thive boxes of shells, and from the
cash drawer they got fifty cents in
silver that was left in the drawer for

publican voters. This was the first
city ejection in the history of the city
in which party lines were attempted to
be drawn, and the voters could not
yet out of the old rut of voting for
Tom. Dick and Harry. It was friend
ship and favoriteism not politics, that
elected the three Democrats who were
elected. The head of the Republican
ticket was defeated because he cared
nothing for the office and made no ef
fort to lie elected. lie said when he
was nominated that he was noi. seeking
the office would do no work t secure
his election. He was in the hands of
his friends and if he had lieen elected
he would have accepted the office and
served his jieople well and honorably.
But he was defeated and while
his party regrets that the election
went that way we are free to say that
Mr. Klostermann will live much hap
pier for the next two yearsasa private
citizen than he would had he lieen
eh.-t.-ted to the office tif Mayor.
Th Republicans made an honest
fight for the election of their ticket.
They had to contend with men of
strange political views. They had to
tight the hoodlum element whose
jmckets were filled with boodle. They
had to stand off traitors to their
party. It was a new idea a new deal
in city elections in this citv and there
was lots to be' learned.
This little failure will not deter the
Republicans from performing their
duty in the future. Cape Girardeau
is a Republican city and the Republi
cans will never rest until it declares
for Republicanism and progress.
