The St. Louis Chronicle has
brought its chronological reckoning
Hp to date as follows: The present

O. Epact S3, Golden Number 14, Ro
man Indication 6, Solar Cycle 27,
Julian period 6607, American Inde
pendence 118 and Tariff Legislation
Titr. position of the house on the
tariff measure is plain. It does not
uphold the senate measure in its en
tirety, but rather than defeat all tar
iff legislation, it recedes and agrees
with the senate amendments. Thus
ends one of the most protracted con
troversies over a national enactment
that has ever engaged the attention
of congress. Let us hope that with
its disposition the long suspense
during which business has been seri
ously affected will now csasr, with
renewed confidence, revived energy
and reestablished commercial pro
gress and prosperity.

Cullom jhan he cares for anyone else
