The grippe has broken out ia New Or
leans with apparently unprecedented Tirol
ence. The last weekly report of mortali
ty shows a total of 239. the largest dur
1 inn any week recorded since yellow fever
, prevailed there as an epidemic twelve
years ago At present there are said to
be 80,000 cases of grippe under treatment
In thit city.
One of the burdensome vagaries of our
high taxation tariff has, according to the
new i or Alar, oeen experienced by a
Mew York business man who was mar
ried In Europe last summer and has found
himself obliged to put a valuation upon
several hundred dollars' worth of wedding
present and then pay about 25 per cent,
duty on them. The American of moder
ate means needs to pray to bis foreign
friends never to send him any presents.
The result in this instance came about by
a decision of Secretary Windom which
may have been good law, but was very

The sironu right aim of the republican
party is psraljzd for the moment. If it
remains so the tl gluing nays of that or
ganization are over. What idiocy, then,
can be more incredible than that of those
congressional uaeks who say. that the
patient can be relieved by a faith cure or
a chost dunce, and that the cause of tl e
disease must not be removed. Every
where in the west the farmers are de
manding that the increased duties on tbe
necessaries of life hiut lie cut down, and
at Washington republican congressmen
are proclaiming "stand by the McKinley
bill." Shall the voice of tbe many be
heeded or that of the few? The republi
can party is near "the parting of the
ways." It must make its choice speedily
between the fHrmers. who are in no tem
per to be fooled with, and blundering
congressmen, puffed up with self conceit
and angered by their recent overthrow.

Tbe publication In last night's Annus of
the bequeaths of the Jewell Filter plantto
the city of Rock Island by Hon. Ben T.
Cable, was a pleasing surprise to tbe res
idents of the city. Tnat such a princely
and magaanimous offering was even in
contemplation, was a profound secret
outside of tbe alderman, c body and a few
confidential friends. The A Rocs was ap
prised of Mr. Cublc's intention as early
as last June, but the sacitdness of a per
sonal pledge necessitated silence until
such time as suited the donor's conven
ience and purpose. That the Anocu was
the first paper to herald the glad tidings,
repays it, however, in a measnrc, for the
long retention of the Interesting fact.
There is something touching and tender
in this memorative tribute of Mr. Cable's
to bis honored aud lamented father. It
displays a spirit of devotion and filial
affection co-equal with his generosity and
warm-heartedness towards his fellow men.
Symbolizing and supplementing the gra-
af his honored sire to the city of
""' offering re
e or marb'e
the giver will
stand as a moguu.... goodness and
love. Sharing with his sister in the do
nation of the beautiful memorial foutain
In Spencer square. Mr. Cable desires to
alone assume the privilege of perpetuat
ing In so distinctive and praiseworthy a
manner the holy memory of bis departed
Dis .SCciaieil from the tenderness and
love so beautifully exmplitied. Mr. Cable
baa observed a fundamental principle of
democracy in the choice of his gift to the
city. lie has undouotedly endeavored to
dispense the greatest good to the greatest
number, and he hag admirably succeeded,
lie has made every resident of Rock Isl
and bis beneficiary. The poor as well as
the rich will reap ttie benefit.
There has teen no partiality or
discrimination, and tbe very na
ture of the gift makes favoritism an im
possibility. With crystalline purity it
will gurgle a welcome in the humble cot
tage and tbe palatial abode alike. Its
transparency will glisten in tlio work
shop and tbe public font. It will tickle
the palate and quench the thirst of human
and animal in short it will be nature's
nectar purified and clarified to a spark
Mr. Cable chose well the time to make
bis presentation on the first day of the
New Year, with its hope and anticipa
tions. Ilad the bequest been bestowed
prior to or during the period be was a
candidate for an important office, false
and selfish motives would certainly have
been ascribed, which would have despoil
ed and sullied its sanctity. The free will
offering from a full heart would have
been misinterpreted by malignant parti
sans. Happily, too, no such influences
were necessary to win the people of his
own city to him. They rallied to his
support and gave bim an en
uaorament complimentary in tbe highest
""'" Uupcration and slander of
no effect. Tbe

J.ONOOV, .Inn. 3. A profonnd sensation
ia enured nil over Kurope by the follow
ing story, published and guaranteed to be
authentic by Tlio London Times: France
now begins for the first time to under
stand the cause of Bismarck's fall, nnd
the cireunistaiii'es, unknown till of late,
which Horom;i!iicd it. All these revela
tions are such that the ex chancellor's
bitterest enemies hardly venture' to di
cuss what a Hlmdnw he cast iu his decent
from power. The iron rule of Uismarck
hail, of late, been an iilistaelo, an einliar
russinetil and a cause of irritation to
everybody and constant difficulty in tbe
dispatch of public affairs. Ijitterly he
hail seen none of tho minister of whom
he was the chief, hail listened to noue of
their objections nnd gave positive and
UYIinite orders, as if the opinions of his
associates iu the government were of no

He was almost inaccessible nnd received
tlioe only whom bis caprice invited round
him. He tolerated no objections,
li-tcoed with a cuudcsceudiiiK smile,
which condemned tieforehand, to the ideas
xihmittcd to him by hisyounK master, tbe
f!leror. He even ceased really to work,
while complaining bitterly if the slightest
decision was come to without consulting
him, mid yet professed himself over
whelmed with labor whenever documents
were sent to him to sign. He had become
a terror to all who were obliged to come
near him. Nobody ventured to coutra
diet him; even the Emperor William IL
saw him only occasionally, because his
majesty was afraid of disturbing or irri
The Imperial Wrath Breaks Out.
t last t he moment came when his pu
pilnow his master confronted the fact
that he was not nia.-ter, but only chief
servant. 1 he long remained imperial
discontent broke into open quarrel on a
minor question and poured forth in such a
torrent that the chancellor, taken by sur-
pnse aim nisconccnea, suddenly said:
Then I can only offer your ma jest v my
resignation." The emperor was silent,
and Uismarck withdrew. Two hours later,
the resignation not having arrived, the
emperor sent an md-de-camp. The chan
cellor greeted him very affably, In-iug con-
uicru mm me emperor wisiieu mm to re
consider his idea of resignation; but, to

The Klupress Frederick's Triumph.
The prince, very uneasy, made the lame
excuse of not having yet drawn it up, and
d -ferred the matter till the morrow. Next
morning the aid -de-camp reappeared.
This time Uismarck was calmer, but attain
made the same excuse, saying that In-fore
preparing n written resignation ho wan
bound to pay a visit. Accordingly, he did
pay a visit, which, incredible as" it may
appear, we can vouch for, was to tiie
Empress Frederick. Yes, in a panic at i.is
fall, this man, who but the day before hail
been the great chancellor, now stooped be
fore her whom he had so long humbled
and explained the danger to the empire
Involved in his fall nnd the fatal conse
quences which the young emperor risked
in thus overturning the founder of the
She Listened nnd Kujoyed.
He begged her majesty to iiiterveneniid
prevent the disaster to Germany and the
remorse that her sovereign would feel at
the unmerited humiliation of his most
faithful servant. The empress heard
him out. She saw humiliating himself
before her the man who had hated im
placably her husband and herself,
and who bad sown distrust lietween
father ami son. No doubt she enjoved the
spectacle of seeing at her feet this bitter
enemy, now dismissed by the very son
whom he hail reckoned on making his tool
airain-t her, and in a single sentence, be
coming an empress, a mother, and
woman, she returned to this cringing dip
lomatist all the insults he had cast upon

She aid: "I much regret being quite

can only witness your fall without ling
able to wanl it off. When you are no
longer then- my son will perhnjis draw
near to me. but then it will be too late for
me to help you.''
The prince withdrew- with downcast
head, and returning home found the aid-di-camp
who for the fourth time hail
come for his resignation, which the fallen
Matesni.in handed to him.
THE IRISH POLITICAL IMBROGLIO.

I.OMH1N, Jan. 3. A telegram from Paris
states that Dillon has cabled O'Brien ad
vising him not to accept the proposals of
I'arnell involving O'Hrieii's acceptance of
the Irish leadership, under an understand
ing that I'arnell should soon return to the
actual leader-hip. Ilillon is said to have
contined himself to merely recording his
opinion, without any urging, leaving
O'Hrien to act on his own judgment with
as little outside inlluence as possible.

It is stated from the same quarter that

Some Hjrnres oi Keeeipts.
Government receipts during December
past aggregated $31,370,039 against $29,
805,504 in December 1N8. Receipts from
all sources from July 1 to Dec, il, the first
half of the current fiscal year, aggregated
in round numbers $211,000,000, or $18,000,
0U0 more than for correspondi ng six
months of 1SS0. Customs receipts for
the past six months aggregated $124,
W0.105, but for the next six months in
the aggregate will fall, perhnm $20,000,-
000 short of this amount. Fifteen mil
lions of this will be due to tbe loss from
sugar duties during the last quarter of the
current fiscal year and $5,000,000 from loss
of revenue due to the extended free list of
the present tariff law. Indications, bow
ever, point to a customs revenue of $221,
0:10,000 during the year. Internal revenue
receipts during the past six months ag
gregated 75,02a,7S5, but are likely to fall
a little short of that duriug the last
half of the fiscal year.
rrobable Revenue for the Year.
But for the entire year receipts are likely
to reach $147.00O,0Ou, or $5,000,W more than
the secretary's estimate made last fall.
Receipts from miscellaneous sources dur
ing the first half of the current fiscal year
were about $14,000,000 and will undoubted
ly -each double that amount by tbe end of
the year. So the indications are that gov
eminent revenues for tbe current fiscal
vear will reach $.190,000,000, against $408,
100,000 during the preceding year, not
withstanding a prospective loss of $15,000,
'100 in sugar duty revenue under the new
tariff after tlie first of next April.
What Was Done wllh the Money.
Government expenditures during the
ast six months aggregated in round
numbers $200,000,000, or $25,000,000 more
1 ban expenditures during the correspond
ing months of 1(S. Of this increase in
xpenditures compared with the first half
of the preceding fiscal year, more than
t n,000,(j is due to prepayment of interest

I lg aggregated $2.SS4.538, against $18,6(3,

Worcester, Mass., Jan. 8. Senator
Hoar told a Gazette reporter yesterday
that he was at home on a business errand,
to fulfill an engagement made before the
session opened. He spoke of the impor
tance of Monday's conference of Repub
lican senators and said that while the ac
tion on tbe elections bill would depend
upon a very small majority, the prospect
looked more favorable now than at any
time since its introduction in the house
last year. "I am not specially informed,"
aid the senator, uas to tbe plans of gen
tlemen who have taken steps to form new
clubs or other Republican organizations.
I think such movements very desirable.
Uoesn't Believe la Crawflshlng;.
"The Republican party will not, how
ever, attain success, or retrieve itself
from the receut reverse which it has en
countered, by abandoning ita principles.
No party will succeed, or ihould succeed,
by inquiring what is the opinion of a
majority of the voters and then seek
ing to conform itself to that opinion
whether it be right or wrong. The Re
publican party should ask, as It always
has. What is tbe right position? What
is just, true, righteous, and it should then
occupy that position. It should are to
bring the voters of tbe commonwealth and
the country to agree to it.
A Pointer from the Democracy.
"Any temporary reverse should iuspire
redoubled seal, not desertion or betrayal
of what is right. We can get a few lessons
of value from our Democratic antagonists,
especially from their southern leader 1
am always proud that the people of the
south are my countrymen, when I think
of their superb constancy. Indeed, lam
inclined to speak of this as did the good

LETTER FROM A DEAD PRIEST.
(is Charges the Indian Troubles Kntlrely
to the 4oerameaL
New Yoi:k, Jan.l-The New York Free
man's Journal publishes a letter from
Father Craft, the Roman Catholic Indian
missionary who was fatally shot through
the lungs in the Indian fight at Wounded
Knee. Tlie letter is dated Dec 30 and was
mailed from Pine Ridge Agency, S. D.
Father Craft says that from the beginning
of treaties with tbe Indians they have been
disappointed, cheated, starved, deprived of
both their own customs and those of the
whites, which they bad fondly hoped to
assume with the aid of the government,
and in every way abused, mocked aud dis
couraged, aud that the whole responsibU
ity for the trouble is chargeable to tbe In
The Work or Interested Whites.
Interested whites, says tbe priest, took
advautage of the Indian dissatisfaction
and howled for troops, and when they
came the same persona went to the Ind
ians and persuaded them that tbe army
had come to complete their destruction.
The priest takes occasion to charge Com
missioner Morgan with blundering and
cruelty, and says that tbe death of Hitting
Bull waa caused "if military reixirts of
the facts and my knowledge of tbe situa
tion agree, as they seem to by the Indian
agent, through a desire for notoriety,
causing trouble in order to quiet it, and
then iiiterferring with the army which
alone had the means, tne prudence and the
confidence of the Indians necessary to
properly manage such things.
