Now that the queen is dead Francis

years, and is in the 71st year of his

of whom were captains before he en
tered West Point, that in 1890 he
deemed himself unfitted for service,

appeared, however, insisted tbat all
he needed was a change of climate

TBC&TS THE BENEFICIARIES.
The boldness of the present con
gress is calling down the wrath of the
press, of the pulpit and of the people.
The "plain people" have asked plain
dealings and justice and now realize
that they are being duped, deceived
and discarded entirely. When congress
convened an appeal came from the
masses for a reduction of the Burden
some war taxes, and asked for reduc
tions on those commodities which
find their way into their homes, and
reductions which would lighten the
burden of oppression thev so long
have had to bear. ,
l'ursuant to tnis appeal, coagress
did take action and is now cuntinuing
such action, but is only enhancing the
indignation and distress of the people
by removing taxes where no demand
from tne plain people lor sucn re
moval is made and by failing to re
move taxes which do oppress and of
fend the people, the removal of which
is so urgently demanded. .
That staunch republican paper, the
Chicago inbone, speaking eentorially.
savs: "ine reduction ol tne war
taxes of 1898 shows that it is a bill for
the benefit of the beer trust and the
tobacco trust.1 It speaks of the sub
stitute for the house bill now In the
hands of the conference committee of
the senate, and states that the meas

trusts will be the beneficiaries to the
amount of over 1 30,000, 000. "To
gether," the Tribune 'states, "these
trusts will get over nine-tenths of the
sum total to be remitted. The part
of the community which is outside of
these two trusts will get rather less
than one-tenth." Continuing, it says:
"It is not to be wondered at that
this misbegotten, misshappen scheme
for revenue reduction has awakened
the indignation of the house, and that
threats are made that this time at
least the senate is not to be permitted
to nave its own way. it is to be
hoped that the house will be firm and
will not let the senate prescribe to it
the, mode of revising the revenue sys
tem. Theenate is usurping one of
the prerogatives of the house and is
doing so to work harm, not good.
"Ihe taxes which the ssnate is so
anxious to reduce are felt by trusts,
but not by consumers. Should the
senate carry its point, the working
men will not get cheaper beer or to
bacco. The taxes which it is pro
posed to tamper with are easily and
economically collected. Those on
cigars and manufactured tobacco had
been lowered too much prior to 1893.
and their increase was - eminently
proper under any circumstances
The beer and tobacco revenue which
the senate wishes to throw away will
be needed to meet the demands
of . that congressional extravagance
which knows no limits. The customs
duties mav bring in soon less reve
nue than they do now and can not be
expected to yield more revenue.
"lne proceeds or internal revenue
taxes will have to be depended upon
to run tne government. J.ne nouse,
acting on behalf of the people, should
defeat this scheme to weaken the
treasury by taking off taxes which
will have to be reim posed a few years
hence when two billion congresses
succeed billion and a half congresses."
MEMORIAL TO WILLIAM L. WILSON.
In view of the great public service,
the broad patriotism, and the beaati
ful traits of character which adorned
the life of the late William L. Wilson,
his friends throughout the union have
determined to erect to nis memory a
memorial worthy of his life and char
acter. In determining the form that
such memorial should take they have
been greatly influenced by the follow
When Mr. Wilson was elected pres
idenc ox Washington ana Lee univer
sity, in the year 1879, he found that
there was no chair of economics in
the university, and upon examination
found that there was no such distinct
chair in any southern university. His
public life Had snown him the im
portance of inculcating in the minds
of the young men of the country
souna nnanciai ana economic views
So impressed was he with this
thought that out of his own meagre
salary he established and largely- sup
ported a chair of economic, the funds
of the university not permitting of
such expenditure. His friends have
therefore concluded that no more fit
ting and enduring monument can be
erected to his memory than the en
aowment oi the chair ol economics
which he himself established, and for
several years maintained, in the uni
versity, to be known as the William
L. Wilson chair of economics; and
that the memorial may be worthy
oi tne man in whose honor it
is erected, and that the services of the
highest scholarship may be secured in
carrying out his purpose, they have
been impressed with the propriety
and importance of raising at least
$ 100,000 for this purpose. A com
mittee has been selected, to take
charge of and prosecute the work to a
completion, and - it earnestly appeals
to the mends oi education throughout
the union, as well as to Mr. Wilson's
personal friend3 and to those who
honor and exalt personal virtue and
patriotism, to aid in effecting the de
sired result. The committee is com
posed of: .
urover Cleveland, chairman: Abra
ham S. Hewitt, George Foster Pea-
body. Isidor Straus, Robert Fulton
Cutting, John G. Carlisle. James C.
Carter, Oswald Garrison Villard, Ilor
ace White, .Herbert Welsh.

WRITES HIS OWN SERMONS.
Rev. Frank O. Brmner Clears Chief Kip
Rev. Frank C. Bruner, formerly of
Edgington township, and who has a
number of relatives and friends in
Rock Island county, is prominent in
the news features of today's Chicago
papers, because of a visit he made to
the city hall to enter a denial of a re
port that Thomas Lamble, steno
grapher for Chief of Police Kipley,
was the author of a sermon entitled
Sodom and Gomorrah," in which
the Harrison administration was se
verely arraigned, and which was re
cently delivered by Rev. Bruner in
his pulpit in Englewood. Limble's
salary has been reduced $ 100 a year,
it is alleged, because it was believed
by the administration that he wrote
the sermon. Mr. Bruner was unable
to see Mayor Harrison personally, but
he left a note to him exonerating
Lamble and assuming the entire
responsibility for the utterances
himself. Mr. Bruner also asked that
Lamble's old salary be restored.
It Rev. Bruner had any hope ol a
regeneration in the city hall it de
parted after he prepared to leave. A
precious bundle of sermons which he
had brought as evidence was missing
from the desk where he had left them
A diligent search was made in the
desks near by, but to no purpose
The divine declared that they were
the only copies extant and that he
would be put to great trouble unless
they were secured.
"VelI, no matter," he hnally said
"if the man or woman who took my
sermons will only read them and
profit by the lesson they contain I will
be amplv rewarded."
La Grippe Quickly Cared.
"In the winter of 1898 and 1899
was taken down with a severe attack
of what is called la grippe," says F.
L. Hewett. a prominent druggist of
Winfield, III. "The onlv medicine
used was two bottles of Chamberlain'
Cough Remedy. It broke up the cold
and stopped the coughing like magic
and I have never since been troubled
with grippe." Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy can always be depended upon
to break up a severe cold and ward oft
any threatened attack of pneumonia.
It is pleasant to take, too, which
makes it most desirable and one of the
most popular preparations in use for
these ailments. For sale by all drug
