no doubt be revealed by equally careful
investigation in every agricultural state.
and it shows bow productive to farmers

they consume in a protected market
where prices are artificially raised by op

Mortgages on farms are the natural and
inevitable result of a protective tariff.

mously concluded that Mr. Brice is the
political Napoleon for the future. Their
judgment is perhaps based on their hopes
rather than on past experience.
Two things are absolutely certain.
First, that the democrats will win if
judged by the merits of their policy; sec
ond, that as sure as death and taxes they
will be wiped off the field unless they
stand shoulder to shoulder and follow
leaders who know bow to lead.
In the matter of tricks, games, deals
and the expenditure of money they are
no match for their opponents. There is
a remnant of conscience left in their par

success, but well enough as a curiosity

Washington City, June 25. The civil
service commission, which has been on a tour
of investigation among several of the larger
postoffkea throughout the west, has returned
to the city. Among the postoffioes invest
igated was that at Milwaukee, Wis. It waa
found that the postmaster at that office had
repeatedly violated the civil service law.
Commissioner Roosevelt, in speaking of tbe
matter, said that in 1835 the civil service
commission gave the postmaster at Milwau
kee authority in a special case to draw from
the upper eligible list to All a lower position.
Made It Too Comprehensive.
The postmaster had construed that into a
continuous authority, without any shadow
of right, and thought he could take any man
from the upper list and then gerrymander
the lower lists so as to have that man certi
fied to. In one case he even had the board of
examiners re-mark a paper, and mark it down,
thereby getting one candidate out of the way
of another. The commission severely con
demns this action of Postmaster Paul in their
report, which is signed by all the commis
sioners. Repeated Violators of the Law.
They say: Having investigated the man
agement of the Milwaukee postofflce, in so
far as it Is affected by the civil service law,
we find that during the past four years the
Iiostmaster, Mr. O. II. Paul, has repeatedly
violated said law, and in many cases has
manipulated the list of ellgihles so that the
per-on whom he preferred should be certified
to him. If Mr. Paul hal any considerable
portion of bis term to serve we would recom.
mend bis immediate removal.
The Official Censure.

term has already expired; that no satisfactory

in making appointments was due to political

A Convict Managing Business.
Harper, in his suit of stripes, a ten-years'
convict in the Ohio penitentiary, has been car

here in Cincinnati and directing its operation
himself by wire. When the Riverside rolling
mill was closed Harper's estate waa sold at
auction by his assignee. In the spring of 1888
the property waa bought by Ii. V. Nelson for
$50,U0D for Mr. E. L. Harper, presumably with
a part of the $:W0,000 which It was generally
supposed had been saved from the wreck by
Harper and his wife. A stock company was
at once formed and incorporated as the Cln.

Baptist Preacher Advocates It
Makes an Attack on Rome.
Baltimore, Md., June 25 The regular
quarterly meeting of tbe Ministerial union.
which is composed of all Protestant clergv-
men in the city of every denomination, was
held yesterday. The feature of the meeting
was an address by Rev. F. M. Ellis, D. D.
pastor of the Eutaw Place Baptist church, on
"The Bible in the Public Schools.'' He said
that no book could take its place as a mental
stimulant, a developing agent, and a moral
guiae, and an education ignorant of truths
of the Bible was undesirable. There was
nothing in the Bible that could harm Gentile,
wi or nomanist; on tbe contrary its teach
ing would redound to their moral benefit
every one of them. An intellectual educa
tion apart from moralitr won I.I nut K.
nucation either for the children or the Amer
ican republic, and if the Bible were taken
taken away from the public schools the verv
- u iwjiuuiic wouta oe enaaugered.
A startling Assertion.
t am in ravor or tbe Bible In the nnhii
schools Mr, Ellis continued because Rome la
opposea to it. lApplause. The aim of the Cath
olic church 1b to make Roman ists: our aim is
to make character. Rome controls all her nen.
pie, and therefore a Romanist can not be a
good citizen of this republic. If the pope had
naa ills way our republic, with its nublin
scnoois and the open Bible, would be things
in iqo paeu
Archbishop Bvan Quoted.
Archbishop Ryan, of Phiia lelnhia. thns nn.
folds the f.elimre of tho Catholic chun-h-
"Rome is intolerant because she a one hu th
truth. When the church becomes aunreme
there will be an end of reiigious liberty."
Rome has already declared her intention not
only or driving the Bible from tbe public
schools, but also of dividing the public school
funds to her own advantage. The right of the
state to educate is denied by Rome, and thus
be openly antagonizes one of the leading In
stitutions of our country. The attemnt nt
jauioiic omciais in Boston to ttomanlse the
scnoois is a well known fact, and thev
moved a history that bad been used in the
scnoois for thirty years, solely.because it told
we trutn about indulgence.
Statement of the Prelates.
Archbishop Segher said of our school
system: "It Is grossly and openly Immoral"
Archbishop illiams, a citizen of Boston, up
held Priest Scully, who refuwd absolution to
parents wno sent their children to the pnblio
schools. Monainor Capel recently said: Tha
day is not far distant when the Catholics, un
der direction of the pope, will refuse to pay
uie puoiic ecnooi lax, ana wui eena bullets
into the breast of the collectors rather than
to py it."
The Remarks Formally Indorsed.
The Rev. Alexander Proud fit. of tbe Sec
ond Presbyterian church; Bishop Latane, of
toe xieiormea episcopal church, and others,
complimented Dr. Ellis, and said the Union
i under great obligation to him for tbe
papar. The address was formally indorsed
