Adolph Uehme, an intelligent farmer at
Ersinanl, Neb, bas figured up how much
tariff taxes have cost him in a year. He
baa done more or less trading at the Til
lage stores, and. of course, has paid pro
tection prices for everything be had to
buy. The following is his account for
the twelve months:

Boots and shoes (coat f.W.50) 8 50
Total tariff on purchases $1 t2
In this way Mr. Oebme figures oat
thai the tariff compels him to pay each
year $142.02 more for goods which be re
quires than they would cost were the tar
iff removed. This becsllshis indirect"
tax, and by comparing it with the direct
tax which he pays bis county, city, and
state he finds this to be the case:
Tariff tax indirect fl42.(H
City, connty and slate direct ;.4
And thus Mr. Oebme figures that he is
paying indirectly a tax which is almost
twice as large as his direct tax, and this
tax is filched from him little by little in
the 9bape of living expenses tbat make it
' hard to make both ends meet. Were al!
the farmers as small as Mr. Oebme. there

Argument That the Kentucky Statesman

Measure The Census Enumerator Will

With Regard to the Obnoxious Ques
tions The President at Homo Again
Miscellaneous Capital News.
Washixgtox Citt, June 8. To B. F.
Howard, of Tuskegee, Ala., Senator Car
lisle has written a letter in response to Mr.
Howard's request for the senator's views
upon the bill providing for a system of
government warehouses for farm products,
upon which products treasury notes may
be issued. After declaring that the trouble
with the farmers is referable to the tariff,
Carlisle rehearses the features of the pro
posed sub-treasury plan, arid notes the
facts that the farmers themselves will pay
more than their fair Bhare of the cost of
erecting the warehouses, and that the of
ficers connected with them will be partis
ans of the administration In power.
Only Rich Counties Benefited.
Carlisle then says: "There are more
than 2,300 counties in the United States.
But not more than one-third of them (if
that many) produce and sell annually
more than 1500,000 worth of wheat, corn,
oats, cotton, and tobacco, and therefore
not more than one-third of them could
possibly avail themselves of this plan if it
were adopted, for the bill provides that a
county in order to secure a warehouse
jnnst produce and sell annually farm
products valued at .Y)0,000. It will be
seen, therefore, at the very outset tbat it is
a plan to compel the government to issue
and distribute money for the benefit of the
people living m the rich and productive
counties at the expense of the people liv
ing in the poorer and less productive ones.
Would bo Pie for Speculators.
"Moreover, it is a plan to enable un
scrupulous speculators to take advantage
of the farmers' pecuniary necessities and
extort exorbitant prices for food from peo
ple who reside in the cities, towns
and villages and from people who
reside in the country but do not
own these particular agricultural prod
ucts, it is evident that no farmer will
subject himself to the labor and expense
of transporting his property to the public
warehouse and to all other charges which
he must pay for storage, for handling, and
for taking care of them while there, when
he has barns and granaries at home, unless
be is in debt and absolutely needs the
money which the government is to ad
vance, and if he is in that unfortunate
condition from what source is he after
wards to acquire the means to redeem the
products by returning the money and in
terest and paying the warehouse charges?
How It Would All End.
"In a great majority of cases be will
never be able to redeem them, but will be
forced to lose the remaining 30 per cent of
tne value of his products or sell his ware
house receipts for whatever he can get for
them, which will be very little: for it must
be remembered that after he gets his
warehouse receipts he has a remaining in
terest of only 30 per cent, less charges for
interest, storage, etc, and this is all he can
dispose of. He will find the time rapidly
approaching when he must have money to
redeem his products, or sell his small re
maining interest in them or allow them to
be sold at public auction by the govern
ment; and this will be the golden oppor
tunity or tne speculators, whose agents
will swarm all over the country, ready to
take the warehouse receipts from the em
barrassed owners for a merely nominal
Only a Pawn Broker's Ticket.
"The receipt is simply a privilege of re
demption, like a pawn broker's ticket, and
the farmer, being himself unable to re
deem, will be forced ultimately to dispose
of it at any price offered. I do not think
that any considerable number of intelli
gent people in this country will unite in
asking the government to establish a sys
tem winch will compel them in a large
number of cases to sacrifice the products
of their labor.
General Effect of the Scheme.
Carlisle argues at some length to show
that the plan proposed would produce an
annua expansion and contraction of the
currency which would result in abso
lutely destroying the market upon which
the farmer must depend for the sale of his
crops, and that the cotton farmers, who
are supporting the scheme, would be
special sufferers because the plan, in the
writers estimation, would close every
cotton factory in the country. No such
facilities as this project will afford for con
trolling the markets for purely specula
tive purposes have ever existed in this or
any other country, and no more perfect
system for the oppression of the poor
could he devised.
Wouldn't Support It, Anyhow.
'I have thus given you, as briefly as the
nature of the subject would permit, some
of the reasons why I think the proposed
plan lor the relief of the farmers would be
injurious instead of beneficial, not only to
them, but to all other people of the coun
try. But it would be uncandid not to say
distinctly before closing this communica
tion that even if it could be conclusively
shown that this or any similar scheme
would be peculiarly beneficial to any par
ticular class of our people I would still be
unalterably opposed to its adoption, be
cause, in my opinion, it would be but an
other wide and dangerous departure from
the principles upon which our political in
stitutions are founded."
THE CENSUS MAN IS ABROAD.
Be Yearns for Information Which Had
Better Be Cheerfully Given.
Washington Citt, June 2. The ma
chinery for taking the census was pnt in
motion to-day ail over the United States,
and It will be pushed as expeditiously as
possible. Supt. Porter anticipates early
returns tohis office, that the work of
tabulating can be entered upon and com
pleted within a reasonable period. All
the preliminary matters have been ar
ranged, blanks pre bared, enumerators in
structed as to their duties, and all that re
mains to be done is to collect the data
which it has been decided shall become a
part of the census. '
An Army of Men Employed.
It requires 43,000 men as enumerators to
gather the requisite information, and each
of these is either employed in a definite
locality or upon some special topic This,
however, does not include the additional
thousands of clerks employed in collect
ing and tabulating the returns made that
will come back from all over the country
as the result of the labors of the ennmer
ators; so it can be Been at a glance what a
corps of men it requires, and an immense
aura of money must be expended to accom
plish this undertaking:
OWJectlona to Colored Enumerators.
Mr. Porter has accepted and con firmed
the supervisor's selections of enumerators,
except in a few instances, when the fit
ness of the appointees was questioned, and
it being shown that they were incom
petent others were substituted. In the
south, in some places, objection was made
to the appointment of colored men, but
the supervisors being held responsible for
their men, he concluded to trust to then
discretion, aud declined to interfere upon
that ground. It Is known, however, that
appointments of this kind are few, and
even in the case of a colored supervisor
nearly all the enumerators .designated by
him are white men.
For the Supersensitive to Ponder.
It is not anticipated that much trouble
will be experienced in obtaining .answers
to the queaUasm that are to be propounded.
00t where refusals are met with they will

be at once reported, and steps taken to en- '
force the law. The superintendent is not
given any discretion in the matter, but it
is made obligatory upon kim to i-eport
each and every person who fails to comply
with the requirements of the law t a the
proper persons, who will institute a rigor
ous prosecution against the violators of it,
and they become liable to a fine of $100.
No harsh measures will be resorted to in
enforcing the law, but where it boomes
plain that Its provisions are intentk nally
violated, the pasties so offending wil be
called upon to take the consequences .

Chicago, 3une a A matter in base

tbat is that the- Brotherhood will
make no changes in its schedule. This
was decided at a meeting of the managers
held at New York Saturday night.
Whether the fact bad any influence in
bringing the Brotherhood to the shove
conclusion, it is a fact that the attendance

Their First Injection of tbe Diluted
Vims at the Pastenr Inatitnte Rev. O.
F. Thompson's C'aae Towns Terrorised
by the Canines.
New York, June 2. Seven boys, aged
from 4 to 14 years, got off a train at the
Grand Central Station early yesterday
morning and looked about them eagerly
in Forty-second Btreet Their faces were
tanned brown and they were in plain
country clothes. Two men and a woman
were with them. The party had been
traveling since Friday night from St
Joseph, a little village in Champaign
county, I1L, and were bound for the Pas
teur Institute at ITS West Tenth street.
Every one of the seven boys had been
bitten a week ago yesterday by a dog which
developed a violent attack f rabies and
died two days later.
Names of the Little Patients.
The names of the children are as follows:
Marshall Gal I ion, a boy or 12, bitten on the
left hand; Ore Shreve, 11 years old, bitten
on tbe left wrist and hand; William Mc
Cullom, 9 years old, bitten on the right
arm; James McCullom, William's brother,
bitten on both arms; Charles Estes Hardy,
11 years, bitten on the fingers of the right
hand; Thurlow S. Hart, 9 years, bitten on
the little finger of the right hand; Floyd
Harvey, 4 years old, bitten on the right
arm. The dog which bit them was un
doulrtedly afflicted with rabies, and died in
great agony last Tuesday. The wounds
were all cauterized, and Dr. Gibier notified
that tbe children would be sent to him.
He telegraphed that they would be treated
regardless of their means, and James Mc
Cnllom, the father of two of the boys, J.
Gal Iin, the father of the eldest of tbe
seven, with Miss Martha Mead, an aunt of
another boy, started east with tbe little
The Firat Inoculation. '
At 2 p. m. yesterday there were twelve
patients at the Pasteur hospital five men
and seven hoys awaiting their first inoc
ulation. One of the 9-year-old boys was
chosen first. His right side was bared
just above the hip and a hypodermic in
jection of the -weakest solution of virus
was given. The left side was treated the
same way. The boy let out one or two
screams as be felt the pricks of the needle.
One by one the others received the injec
tion. Some of them were badly scared.
Floyd Harvey, the baby of the lot. a
bright little fellow in dresses, took it like
a little man. The last of tbe boys to be
inoculated was young Gallion, the eldest
of them all He was so thoroughly fright
ened tbat his father had to comrtnd help
bold him. He had Iiecome so wrought np
that he yelled at the top of his voice when
the doctor first painted his skin with the
Ocacription of the Treatment.
Dr. Gibier's institution has been open
just three months, and twenty-six cases
have been successfully treated. The treat
ment consists in tbe injection nnder tbe
skin of tie patient of small portion of
the spinal cord of a rabbit that has been
infected with the poison of hydrophobia.
The strength of the virus is regulated by
the length .of time which the rabbit has
had the virus in its system. None of the
children have developed any symptoms of
tbe disease yet, and Dr. t.bier says that
there is no danger now. They will be in
oculated with stronger and stronger virus
for the next two weeks, when their treat
ment will le complete.
AN EPIDEMIC OF RABIES.
Illinois Iogs Going Mad in Numerous
Mattoox, 111., June 2. Rev. O. S.
Thompson, who is well known throughout
central and southern Illinois as an able
minister of the Presbyterian church, left
Mattoou a few months ago and went to
Columbia, Mo., where he was bitten by
his favorite pointer dog two weeks ago.
Tbe dog bad leen very restless for several
days before the little scratch on the minis
ter's fingers was produced by the canine's
teeth, nnd prompt cauterizing of the
wouud probably counteracted the effects
of the poison. Dr. Paquin, of Columbia,
expressed the opinion that the dog was
afflicted with the rabies, and it was killed.
Rev. Mr. Thompson proceeded at once to
Dr. Gibier's institute in New York, where
he will remain under treatment for fifteen

Over the Defeat or Yale The I'olloe
Cambridge, Mass.. June 2. The cele
bration of Harvard's victory on the ball
field and in the Mott Haven games Satur
day took a queer turn Saturilay night.
A plentiful use of crimson paint bss pro
Juced a startling effect upon the college
buildings. The statue of the dignified
John Harvard, the founder of the univer
sity, was literally covered with the pig
ment. The statue is ruined, for the dis
coloration cannot be removed except by
rechiseling. The steps of the Memorial
hall were also covered with the same
oolored paint, these words standing out in
bold letters, "To 11 with Yale." On
the doors of Sever hall were the inscrip
tions: "H 33," "II 9," "Y t."' Appleton
chapel. Gore hall and Buy (stun hall were
also daubed in the same manner.
Cremated His t Ian hammer.
The boys also built a big bonfire on the
campus, and one student cremated bis
dress suit in tbe exuberance of his pride.
The remnants of whisky bottles are many,
and the total damage to tbe college prop
erty will reach nearly 10,iu. The result
of the Mott Haven sports was not officially
received until 9 o'chn k Saturday night, np
to which time the students seemed to be
well under restraint; but no sooner was it
known that Harvard had won the cup than
all, with one accord, burst into cheers of
Driven from Their Iteds.
Within half an hoar after the news ai
rived Harvard street was thronged with
intoxicated college youths, who with
ghonlish delight msde life miserable for
belated travelers. The police undertook
to drive the mob off the streets, but was
jeered and hooted at from every side. The
noise was so fiendish and unnatural that
many of the residents in the neighbor
hood were driven from their leds in fright
and sought an explanation of the mystery
Details or the Devilment.
The campus presented a most wretched
condition yesterday morning, but the man
ner in which many of theci-llce buildings
were defaced and daubed with red paint
was the principal cause of indignation.
The statue of John Harvard, just Ijeyond
Memorial hall, seems to have Iveu the first
object upon which the drunken students
got in their work of vandalism. They
painted the face red and tbe limbs a sim
ilar color, but the b"ok upon the knee and
those under t tie chair wecedauled abriht
green. Tbe coat and 1 .m front were
streaked' with yellow, as were also the
hands. Not content with this 'bey ntxt
painted a -&-" on the front of the graniie
block upon which the Matue rts. Tht
number represents the Mott ll.nv-.n sore
and covers the entire front.
Fven the Chapel Not Sacred.
The Kirkland street entrance to Me
morial hall was next visited, anil the
brown stone flagging of the top step Ifcart

the large oak d xrs of Sever hall the mys

The figures and letters cover the outer
sides of both doors. Appleton chapel did
not escape their vandalism, for even hpre
the same figures appear in bold relief
npon the granite and free stone trim
mings, Tbe Harvard library al-ocame in
for a little attention. In t-liort, they
painted every building in the college yard
except tbe dormitories.
An KIHsr fur the Yale Hoys.
Boylston Hall seems to have fared tbe
worst bo far as quantity was concerned.
The steps, flagging and everything are
completely covered with red paint, and
look as though the work of vandalism had
terminated here. In the pitcher's liox on
Holmes' field, the same on which Satur
day's game was played, in the early morn
ing was found a headless dnmmy, propped
up in position. On a card, w raw led in
uneven letters, were: "What is left of
Stagg. Ist his head on Saturday." A
blue scarf was tied altout the waist, and a
pair of blue stockings adorned the
dummy's legs. Near by, susi-nded to a
long Kile driven by a sharp point into tbe
ground, was a large crimson fly made of
paper. It bore the legend: "The flv that
Hooting the Culprit.
The mass of students expressed them
selves in very st rone language of condemna
tion on beholding the work of tbe night.
They term it an outrage on decency, which
should merit the censure of every well
meaning rtndent of the college. They
have called a meeting for Tuo-ulay
night, the object of which is
to take some decided action in
ferreting out the perpetrators of these
outrages. They propose also to raise
money among themselves to repair as far
as possible th.i work of the vandals. It is
the belief of seniors and juniors that the
culprits were freshmen, and they signify
their willingness to sift the matter to the
Only One Life Loot at Fort Worth.
Fokt Worth, Tex., Juue 2. The latest
account sof the Spring palace fire state that
only one life was lost, that of A. Shayue, of
Fort Worth, who got out of the building,
but who returned to render assistance to
others, when escape was cut off by the
stairway, and he jumped from a window
and died shortly after. Fifty-six persons
were injured, two seriously, in the jam
about the stairway.

playing base ball yesterday got intoaquar
rel over tbe game, and then began fight
ing. During the fight some one fired a

yet been captured.

Pleaker Reed U.-n his speech by
reference to the doctrine of irse
verance of the saints. He then
spoke of the tariff bill, which be said
had lieen pase.l-with a party unauimity
in the house without a tarallel iu his
tory. He s.iid that there was no doubt an
idea prevailing that under certain circum
stances New England industries might be
carried on to a greater advantage. ' For
instance," said he, "if raw material could

plest course in this woird is not always the
safest. Rember the principle npon
which proteion is founded is not the fos

serving of tbe American market to the
American ieople. If you demand it, you
mutt grant it. If you believe it for your
selves, yon cannot stand up and disbelieve
in it fur others.
The Time of Politiral Danger.
Remember, there is no t ime of great-er
danger than after a victory. TheeiH-my t hen
have nothing to bwe, ami they are on the
alert. They have everything to gain: and
if you wiil only rememU'r the correlative
that after a vicigi,- ymi have everything
to lose, then you will (;ird on your armor
and push on to battle. and show in politics
the soundness of tbat doctrine of religion
with which I hezan tbe doctrine of the
perseverance of the saints."
