dicates a better outlook than many
ot our republicans may like, but it is
a fact, nevertheless.
Tnc elections this fall involve the
election of the house of representa

of 80 of these expire next March, and
55 are democrats and 15 are republi
cans. The othrrs are vacancies.
Governors will be elected in 27 states.
The I'nion says it is satisfied with
the result of the Mercer county con

nomination is concerned. The Union
is evidently preparing to content
itself with the outcome of the con

to move on and give that McKiniey
infant a rest.
The sngar schedule, which arouses
such fierce indignation among repub
licans, does not greatly differ from
tne UcNinley law. Both were con

Is a reasonable hope that the trust
features of the sugar tariff will be
eliminated in the conference com.
mittee. and that a straight revenue
, tariff will be laid on sugar if it is
founi that tne needs of the treasury
forbid that it be placed on the free
list. The McKiniey bill permits the
sngar refiners to get their raw
sugar free, but puts a tariff of
one-half a cent a pound on
sugar refined above No. 16 Dutch
standard. The present senate bill
puts a tax of only one-eighth of a cent
a pound on re lined sugar, but taxes
raw and refined sugars 40 per cent.
Tax on raw sugar is in reality a rev
enue tariff. Tim refiners would get
s(-me benefit from this advalorem
tax, but the Vital would not exceed
the one-half cent a pound given them
on refined sugars by the McKiniey
law. The senate bill is condemned
by democrats, not because it is worse
than the McKiniey law, but because
it does not realize the pledge of the
party to eliminate sugar trust con
cessions found in the McKiniey law.

The ruling of the supreme court
on the apportionment of the state
made by the last legislature is a sig
nal and significant victory for the
democratic party in the state. It is
downfall to the plot on the art of
the republicans to inveigle the courts
into a political scheme to defeat the
lawful acts of the state legislature.
The suits, the court holds are dis-
, missed for want of equity and juris
diction, the highest tribunal of the
state thus rising about partisanship,
inspires for itself a popular confi
dence. Defeated at the poles, the ex-attor-aejr
general of the state first west
before Judge Book waiter in the Dan
ville district with his attempt to act
aside the apportionment. Finding,
much to his dismay, that he had no
standing in this or the other
lower court where his attempt
was made, he went before
the supreme court, where the
fact that his attack upon the appor
tionment was without merit, is given
forcible and emphatic confirmation.
So that after being kicked out of the
office by the people of the state, and
then thrown ont ot two of the lower
courts cot the state, and finally
the supreme court, Mr. ex-Attorney
General roust feel f pretty sore, poli
tically and otherwise.
From the commencement ot these
proceedings, representative demo
crats of Kock Island have main
tained that the apportionment was
purely a legislative act, over which
the courts had no jurisdiction, and
the decision of the highest judicial
authority of the state has fully up
held that theory. As the Chicago
Herald well says in its comments on
the ruling: '
No person, or collection ot per
sons, being one of these departments
(executive, legislative and judicial),
shall exercise any power properly
belonging to either of the others."
says the constitution. Again it says:
"The general assembly shall appor
tion the state." The apportionment
created the constituencies of the leg
islative body. For the judiciary to
interfere in'the apportionment would
be to interfere with the creation of
the legislative constituencies, aud
exercise of power solely bestowed on
the legislature. It would make, in
ctTect, the legislature a creature of
The democratic attorneys have ar
gued the apportionment cases in all
the courts on these lines. The cir
cuit court in two districts one re
publican and one democratic judge
and the supreme court with fix
justices, four republicans and two
democrats on the bench have de
cided that they each twere without
equitable jurisdiction. .. The appor
tionment act. therefore, stands, a
sublime monument of legislative in
dependence and of judicial integrity
The democratic triumph which is
felt in the sanction the courts have
given to the acts of a democratic leg.
islature is but the forerunner to dem
ocratic victory again at the next
ftate election, and the subsequent
election of a democratic United States
senator. This much settled, Kock
Island will present the man of the
"What makes a person interesting?"
It cannot be intellectual brilliancy, for
we have all known men whose minds
were stored with the best thought of the
world, yet wholly failed to interest us;
women whose brains were developed
by the widest culture, yet were unable
to appear other than dry as dust cata
logues of knowledge. Think of the peo
ple who interest yon and study their
qualities, and how few yon find possess
ing just the same traits.
It is all a matter of magnetic soul cur
rents possibly. Why not? We can
hardly dinjrate that some human bodies
convey electricity much more readily
than others. In almost any gathering
of a dozeu persona at least one will be
found who possesses this strange power.

sensation like that of touching an elec
Is there anything impossible in the
theory that souls have their electric cur
rents, which pass more or less freely to
and fro according to the individual pow
er as conductor? Then we have but to
assume that the person who interests us
is one whose soul current mingles freely
with our own. This is perhaps a more
satisfactory explanation than the more
commonly received one of animal mag
netism, a quality on a lower plane and
infinitely less subtle in character. Bos
The wild, untamed earthquake is a
terrible thing to encounter. The "quak
ing,' the rending of the earth's surface
and the other incidental accompaniments
usually described are only a tithe of the
real terrors of a seismic shock. To some
the noise which precedes the real shock
is more terror inspiring than the
"quake" itself. Father Kircher describes
tliese subterranean rumblings as "a hor
rid sound resembling that of an infinite
number of chariots driven fiercely for
ward, mingled with the noise of crack
ing whips, neighing of horses and the
cries of victory and despair on the part
of the charioteers.'
The sounds which preceded the great
Lisbon earthquake are said to have re
sembled "the rumbling of empty omni
buses, chariots and barrels, the noise in
creasing in volnme until it equaled the
roar of a thousand cannons.' Another
peculiarity is the gyratory motion that
is frequently imparted to sections of
earth of greater or lesser area. At Co
lares in 1735 several stone houses in the
lower quarters of the city were turned
completely around, this, too, without
rendering them uninhabitable. St

There is no reason whv a muscle or
