It is said that Senator Morrissey
died with his pockets full of railroad
John Harlow, of St. Louis, has been
appointed United States Civil Service

State Senator IV-tc-r II. . Morrissey
was killed in a house of ill-fame in
St. Louis Monday ni;'lit. He was
shot by the woman who was his mis
tress. This should be a warning to
some of our statesmen in this county
who take in the town when they visit
Senator Morrlssey. who was killed
in a house of ill-fame in St. Louis
Monday nifjht was a Democrat. They
don't kill 1 It-publicans in houses of
that kind. Xow and then we hear of a
Republican statesman Iteinjr shot down
but the shooting- always tx-curs in a
church or a saloon.
A Chicago saloonkeeper has lieeti tin
fourteen pay rolls of the city, and one
citizen is mentioned as having drawn
the pay for thirty-one persons
Municipal government in the West
may not compare with that of the
East, but the Chicago thieves have
certainly lieen doing the liest they
could to come upto Eastern standards.
The report of Consul Meeker at
Bradford, England, shows that the
exports of woolen goods from that
city to the United States for the month
of February, lKO.",, were $l,f(K,000
greater than for the month of Febru
ary, 1894. This information should
1)0 read in connection with Consul
Meeker's other report of the sale of
two sample cases of American woolen
goods in Bradford.
Which is the wiser, the sounder, the
mora profitable, the moi-e patriotic
plan to continue to pay 100,HH.00(a
year to foreign ship owners, and see
almost every dollar of it lost to us. ot
to spend two, three, four or five mil
lion dollars to encourage American
citizens to carry American commerce
under the American flag? To the
American mind this question admits
of only one possible answer.
In the Conran case at New Madrid
able lawyers have lieen retained on
either side. The relatives of the
young man who was killed ha ve wealth,
and whether the killing was done in
self-defence or not they seem to lie
determined to try to make a murder
case against young Conran. James V.
Conran is a bright young lawyer who
has a host of friends and it will take
something more than money to con
vict him. We know nothing about
the case further than what we have
learned from the New Madrid Iiecord,
and that is very unsatisfactory as evi
dence, but we do know young Conran,
the accused, and we do not lx-lieve
that he is a man who would commit
It is said that tleorge (iould has an
ambition to become a United States
Senator, and has chosen New Jersey
as his constituent State. The wealth
and the versatility in polities which
Mr. Could inherited from his father
should make his entrance into the
Senate an easy matter. He will not
be bothered with political principles
which mijjht prevent acceptance of a
nomination from the party happening
to be dominant when the time is ripe
for the realization of his hojies, and
ho undoubtedly is eligible for a mil
lionaires" club. Worse men with less
claimsto statcsmanshipthan Mr. (iould
have been elected to the Senate. As
long as we have a system of senatorial
election which makes wealth the prin
ciple of selection Mr. (iould must lie
regarded as an exceptionally available
candidate for a seat in the Senate.
Our town wr-s filled with railroad
people this week and railroad talk has
been the order of the day. The ( 'hester.
Farmington and Western Uailroad
Company presented a petition to the
county court praying- for a right of
way through this county. The court
granted the jH tition giving said com
pany the right of way under certain
conditions, which are published in the
court proceedings elsewhere in this
issue. In February, lilS, the county
court gave Mr. Louis Houck the right
of way through the county for a period
of three years, and this order has not
been rescinded. Both companies claim
they are willing and anxious to build
the road and are ready to go to work
at oneo. What the outcome will be no
one can say, but there's no doubt there
will lx? considerable litigation over the
matter. St Genevieve Fair Tlay.
The St. Louis newspapers are after
Duestrow's neck and if Charley John
son don't do something to close the
editors mouths Duestrow will surely
hang. A man's millions cannot save
him if the newspapers are not silenced.
Why do we never hear of people be
ing '"hypnotized" into doing some
good and proper act? It is always
the reverse and this leads to a strong
suspicion of humbug.
The movement in Newfoundland for
confederation with Canada is said to
have been practically abondoned. and
the government will attempt to sus

Newfoundland needs most is to drive
out the fellows in power who have
recklessly squandered the govern

and now a hypnotist. Her powers as
a hypnotist were demonstrated the
other day during the investigation of
some petty offense against certain of
ficials of the Kansas Insane Asylum.
She put a witness to sleep and caused
him to deny the truth of the testimony
given the day before, and then created
considerable fun bycausing the witness
to stiffen out his limbs.
Nicaragua has raised by popular
subscription the ".".( WO due to lire-it
Britain. Raising the money has in
creased tKe bitter feeling in Nicaragua
against the British, and a boycott of
British goods by Central American
states is threatened. That will mean
fresh complications, and that is what
John Bull desires. He wants to have
some excuse to meddle with the Nicar
agua canal, and get control of it
Here is a bit of delicious repartee
from Lawyer Joseph H. Choate of New
York. At a dinner, when Mr. and
Mrs. Choate sat at the sametable, Mr.
Choate was asked who he would prefer
to lie if he couldn't lie himself. He
hesitated for a moment, apparently
running over in his mind the great
ones on earth when his eye fell on Mrs.
Choate. who was at the other end of
the table, looking at him with intense
humor and interest depicted in her
face, and he suddenly replied: "If I
could not be myself. I would like to he
Mrs. Choate' second husband."'
The wages tif Scotch miners at the
Fife and Clackmannan collieries were
reduced 12 per cent, on April 1.1, the
wages of workers above ground being
reduced '2 pence per day and those un
der ground in proportion. Enormous
contracts for coal have been entered
into in the north of England at rates
one shilling per ton lower than have
hitherto prevailed, the contracts being
for twelve months' supply. The cheap
er cost of coal will enable the British
manufacturers to supply our markets
with still cheaper goods and force
their competition still more vigorously
against American manufacturers.
The unfortunate men and women who
work in the British collieries have to
suffer for this in England and our
wage earners must suffer hew so as to
meet the closer comietition.
Some statistics have been published
showing the effect of anti-toxine in sub
duing ravages of diptheria in the city
of Yonkers. N. Y. In 1S!1 and
the mortality from diphtheria there
was .K) per cent: in 18!);! it was 47..Ki per
cent: in 1S!I4. when the new remedy
began to be introduced, it was 34 per
cent: while in January of th:s year,
anti-toxine being more generally used,
it fell to Hi.lili jier cent, and in Febru
ary and March to I'Z per cent. Out of
forty cases attended by the health offi
cer of Yonkers. and in which the dis
covery was applied, only two proved
fatal, and in these there were special
reasons for the failure of the anti-
toxine. This is tine of the best pieces of
evidence yet published to show the
great value to humanity of the new
Secretary Morton has written a let
ter to a Denver man answering some
of the criticisms on his recent inter

coinage acts of February 'IX and

a definite abandonment, in practical
effct. of the attempt to maintain the
double standard, and that they were
passed with a full knowledge that they
