McKislev'i speech of acceptance
Is adroit and shrewd. It is all for
protection and very little for finance
It shows the purpose to force the
righting on protection lines, so as to
justify further legislation in behalf
of the monopolists and trusts that
were born of republican legislation
and now seek to rule the land.
Ji'ixjK Cam. K. Eplbk. of the
Adams connty conrt, has determined
to enforce the new inheritance tax
law. The first two cases to be tested
will be those of the estates of Abram
Benton and Thomas White. The
first estate has not been inventoried.
bat there is a showing of 920O.O3O

The second estate inventories 1170,

A Sorry Bight.
It is a sorry sight to see republican
taxpayers in Illinois upholding their
party for expending 1508,000 more in
three vears than the present state
democratic administration has ex
pended in the past three years for
the maintenance of the state charit
able Institutions. To be sore, many
thousands of republicans are not up.
holding their party in this extrava
gance, but many other thousands
are, and it is s sorrowful sight to
note that even a lew republicans are
ready because of intense partisanship
to uphold It. A dollar is a dollar
whether it is taken in the shape oi a
tax from the pocket of a republican
or a democrat, and when It is re.
tnembered that the present state
democratic administration took 1599,
000 less of these hard-earned dollars
from the tax pay ere for a given ser
vice for a period of three yeara than
the recent republican administration
took for Identically the same service
tor a corresponding period, tax pay
era without regard to party ahould
atand in a solid phalanx in support
of the party which gives them the
most economical service. The one
represents honesty and economy,
while the other represents dishonesty
and extravagance. This is a very
aorry eight to the republican farmers
who need every dollar they can get
out in the fields at work these days

gance with the people's tax money

WaHIXGTO!, July . Between 40,0f
and 60,0i0 visitors to the Capital City are
expected during the next ten days to at
tend the sessions of .the fifteenth interna
tional Christian Endeavor convention,
whieh begins on Wednesday, the 8th in
slant, and continue, through the 13th. A
vast amount of work preparing the pro-
gramme for the convention and for the re
ception and entertainment of the Endoav-
nrers has been done by the local commit
tee. From the enthusiasm which has been
apixin-nt all over the country a. disclosed
by I ho communications that have been re-
relvrd by the local committee, and the in
tense Interest taken in the convention, it
seems to be assured that the gathering
will be the greatest of its kind ever held.
Combined Keating Capacity of 4O.0OO.
' Atcombined seating capacity of 40,000
will be available at any time during the
convention, and the meeting places will
be more numerous than heretofore. Three
great tents pitched on the hite lot (a
government reservation just south of the
president's mansion), a large hall and a
number of the churches, will constitute
the principal auditoriums, and at certain
times meetings willjbe held simultaneously
In all. Aside from the Interior decorar
tlons of the tents and churches the ciU
sens of Washington, particularly , tho
merchants, have entered into the spirit of
the convention and joined in making the
city attractive by liberal decorations of
their homes and places of business.
Flowers Welcome the KnileaYorer.
Shops windows are bright with conven
tion colors; shields and other devices in
colors bearing the word "Welcome" am
prominently displayed, and fronts of
stores and buildings aredruncd. The gov
ernmcnt authorities have lent their assist
ance in decorating the public parks with
appropriate foliage devices, which include
the working out on plants and flowers of
tho familiar "C. E." monogram, comtiimt
tions tf the letters "Y. 1 C. K," the
convention flag in colors, and other de
vices with scroll work. A prominent fea
ture of this year's convention will be the
great chorus of about 4,000 voices which
has lieen in training a long time for the
Outline of tha Programme.
The programme committee has had in
mind the bicyclists who attend the con
vention and for them a number ot runs
to interesting points in the vicinity have
been arranged. The programme for the
meetings of tho convention is about com
pleted. In general it contemplates early
morning prayer meetings in tho -churches
of the vnrious denomination represented
froin:: until 7:15 o clock. From 9:30
o'clock until well on towards noon are to
be held tho meetings for addresses, re
ports, praise and the discussion of varlrtns
topics In the large tents and some of the
large halls and churches.
Kalliee In the Afternoon.
In the afternoons scattered throughout
the convention days there will be denomi
national rallies In the several churches,
ofllcerV and committee conferences, de
nominational missionary rallies, and an
informal reception to all officers of the
state, territorial and provincial Endeavor
unions by the ofllcers and trustees of tho
United Society of Christian Endeavor. Tho
evening sessions are to be similar in many
respects to those held during the morning.

who resides at Green Bay, writes
starch 6th, 1895, as follows:
"Five years ago 1 became so nervous that
mental work was a burden. I could not rest
at night on account of sleeplessness. My
attention was called to Ir. Miles Restora
tive Nervine, and I commenced to nse it
with the very best effect. Since then I
have kept a bottle in my bouse and use it
whenever my nerves become unstrung, with
always the same good results. My son also
takes it for nervousness
with like never tailing
success. I have recom
mended it to many and
it cures them. All who
suffer from nerve
troubles should try it.
It Is free from narcotics, perfectly harm
less, and yet soothes and strengthens. Dr.
Miles, through his Nervine is a benefactor
to thousands." .' A. C. LEHMAN.
