Ths Atchison Patriot, the o'dest dem
ocratic daily in Kansas, hoists the names
of Hill and Boies for 1893.
It is stated that McKlnlej's election

about some things costing more than they

The Philadelphia Ledger says that "it
will be disheartening if the con tea for
the speakership shall be waged on any
other ground than that of superior de
serving on the part of candidates. It is
no proper part of the proceeding to ats
tempt to forestall or influence in any way
the choice of the democratic candidate
for the presidency. Sufficient to 1892
are the politic; of 1892. What the Fifty
second congress has to do with at its first
session is policie? ; the presidency is an
other affair for the determination of
another representative body."
The death of Gov. Hovey, of Indiana,
reminds the Burlington Gazette, of a
bnef history of that state when it had
four different governors in less than four
months. On the 3d of Oct.. 1800. Gov.
Aspbel P. Willard died acd Lieut. Gov.
A. A. Hammond became governor,
lie Dry S Lane was elected governor in
1S60, and was inaugurated Jan. 14, 1861.
He was elected senator, and resigned
Jan. 16. 1861. and Oliver P. Morton, as
lieut. governor, was elevated to the
governorship. So that in three months
and 13 days Indiana had four governors.
"Shall we, on the eve of a great na
tional test, when victory is almost within
our grasp, abandon or ignore a vital
issue upon which we are united and
waste our strength In a fruitless contro
versy among ourselves over questions
which can be better adjusted after it has
been determined what part of their own
earnings the people shall be per milted. to
keep? Let us do one thing at a time and
all things in their proper order. The first
duty of the democratic party and all who
sympathize with it is to change the laws
under which the earnings of the people
are taken away from tbem by unjust tax-,
ation for private purposes, ana whoever
proposes to postpone lbs performance of
this duty in order to inaugurate a war
among ourselves over the silver question,
or any other question, is not a wise coun
sel and would not make a safe leader."
John G. Carlisle.
"They know they are beaten and that
we have the legislature, and more than
that, we will have it for a long time to
come," said Gov. Hill, as he con
templated the political situation in the
light of the events of the last week.
It was indeed a democratic day, and the
faces of the democrats about the capitol
revealed plainly their happy frame of
mind. They all echoed the governor's
phrase, "They know they are beaten and
the legislature is ours." Thus said the
New York Sun the morning following
the returns from New York indicating
that the democrats hadj the legislature.
The senate now stands, with Sherwood,
the ineligible republican candidate, in
cluded: Republicans, 10; democrats, 15;
independent republicans, 1 . The state
board of canvasers, by deciding Sherwood
ineligible, will give the democrats 10 and
the republicans f5. Should Edwards
ote with the republicans the senate will
then be a tie, with Lieut.-Gov. Sheehan
to give the deciding vote. Once the
senate is organised the contest of Senator
H. F. Collins (democrat) for the teat in
the Sixteenth district now held by Derby
(republican) will be decided, probably in
favor of Collins. In the assembly the
outlook is still belter. The democrats
will have a majority of from four to five
at the outset.
The Viator the Tariff Iinr.
The reason the raising of government
revenues by tariff texes is a favorite
method with law givers is explained by
the New York World to be because the
tax is taken surreptitiously; because the
man who pays the tax never knows how
much be pays, and he is therefore less
concerned than he might otherwise be to
insist upon economy in government ex
penditures and to resent extravagance
and waste or even fraud itself. But the
system is a very bad one to carry to ex
cess. It taxes in the wrong place and
upon a pernicious principle . Taxes ought
to be levied upon wealth; tariff tax pov
erty far more than wealth.
Taxes ought to fall mainly upon those
who can afford to pay; tariff taxes fall
mainly upon those who can least afford to
Tax es ought to be levied on property .
Tariffn levy taxes upon industry and
consu nption, thus doubly tending to bur
den business, to lessen markets, to re
duce the demand for men's services, to
keep wages down and to diminish the
purch wing power of wages.
It is the policy of the democratic ptrty,
in the interest f the people, to reduce
tariff burdens to a minimum, to make the
common necessaries of life and the raw
materials of manufacture so far as possi
ble f r e, to give every possible encour
agement to industry, and to reduce the
expenses of the government to the stand
ard of actual need.
It is. the policy of the republican party
to increase tariff taxes so as to restrain
trade, to eccourage the business of the
rich at the expense of the poor, to make
the ntcei&aries of life dear, and to collect
vast s ims from the people which may be
squan lered in ways calculated to pur
chase support fur the party spending
The question for tv:ry man to answer
in next year's presidential election is,
which of these policies do you prefer?

Recor 1 and the Monmouth Atlas have
used considerable of their valuable space
to cor demn Bi n T. Cable because he saw
tit to spend a few months in France.
Andy O son of the Atlas, hns made fre
quent references to 'Congressman Cable,
of Frtnce," as he terms our congressman.
Now to a person of ordinary intclli
geoce it would seem that Mr Cable
possessed the rights of any frets Ameri
can iiizsn in the mailer of traveling
any wl tre and at any time tbey should
choose. Mr. Cable's duties as a mem
ber of congress do not commence until
next Monday and already he is in
Wash cgton ready to serve the inter
ests of all his constituents. An ty Olson
included- These puny, childish attacks
on Mr. Cable are on a par with the tac
tics mlopted by many republican papers
last fall in calling Mr. Ctble a dude, a
dandy, etc., and yet if ihcss same small
specimens of humanity had to face Mr.
Cable in a physicni encounter tbev would
think bim a John L. Sullivan. Bjth in
tellectually and physicilly he is as far
superior to these gad-flys es the light of
the sun is superior to a lightning bug.
If thee gentlemen think Mr Ctble is
from France thy should visit Rock Isl
and and see the numerous) and important
improvements he hns eiven ttiatciiv.
His fa'trr. the late I'. L Cable, built
the w terworks systtm and gave it to the
city, tod Ben. in order to give the citi

has commenced the construction of filter

of the Mississippi into as pure, whole
some water as our artesian water. The
fact ti at Mr. Cable carried every ward in
the re pub ican city of Rock IsNnd includ
ing Mr. Gest's own ward sufficiently at
tests Lis popularity, and the further fact
that Charles II. Deere is afraid to run
againtt him next year proves that be has
lost none of his popularity because be saw

A Few Suggestions About New and Pop
ular Things In Fancy Work.
It is early to talk of Christmas gifts, but
for those whose purses are not long and
whose presents have to be thought out aud
made by willing fingers it is not too soon
to begin preparations. Many pretty and
ornamental knickknacks can be made if one
begins in time. Something quite new is a
photograph frame made as follows: Take
three-quarters of a yard of heavy, hand
some 5-ineh ribbon and fringe out about
four inches on each end. Take thirty ordi
nary brass curtain rings and cover by
crochetting around them in si!k, matching
the ribbon in color, at the same time join
ing the rings so as to form a frame the
fcize of a cabinet photograph. The frame
will le six rings wide ar.il seven in length,
with an extra row of four rings just above
the bottom row. Tack this frame to one
eud of the ribbon, slipping in the photo
graph before tacking down the top of the
frame. Cover one large ring with crochet
ling, slip the ribbon through this and sus
pend against the wall by means of this
ring and a hook or tack, taking care to
make the picture end hang flat aguiust the
Another pretty thing that has come up
in t ne same style is a shopping bag orna
mented with brass rings covered with
crochet work. A handsome and service
able bag is made of desired size iu dark
red pluh and Iinod with old gold satin.
A sufficient number of rings are crochetted
over in silk to match the lining of the bag.
A row of these, the width cf the bottom of
the bag, is sewed on, and above them an
other row. Then five rings are sewed ou
and one missed, and so on across the bag,
and above these a row consisting of three
rings sewed onto each of the live aud three
rings missed lietweeu each group, and so
on to form points, the last row having one
ring on each point.
There is a great fashion just now for
bags, and work bays are frequently made
of a purse shape, aud strips of alternate
silk and velvet may lie used, with a tassel
at each end. The old model known as a
stocking bag, a circular case around which
is a row of pockets, the center closing with
a ribbon or string, is always useful.
Useful little cases for string balls are
made in velvet, four points meeting over
the ball in the center, like the petals ot a
Very fashionable work is now done
either with colored threads on white linen,
or white thread on colored linen. Of the
former class are the charming little white
liaen tidies edged with hit, with a deep
drawn border ami spray of flowers, em
broidered i:i gold and white thread. These
are always elegant in appearance and
wash admirably. A key pattern in drawn
work upou iinen makes a pretty table
An Attractive Glove Itox.
The foundation of the pretty and conven
ient glove box depicted in the cut is of
stout pasteboard; this is covered in blue
plush and lined with quilted aud scented
cream silk. The embroidery is worked in
five shades of bine silk on fine yellowish
canvas, each stitch over four threads.
The effect of the graduated colors is ex
cellent and is heightened by tie si eel beads
placed on the points.
Cups mnd Saneers and Spoon.
A very uuique and tasteful fad now pre
vails, viz., the engagement cup and saucer.
It consists in the presentation of a dainty
after dinner coffee or afternoon tea of the
Guest china to young ladies whose engage
ments nre announced.
The daintiest specimens in spoons have
handles of filigree. Occasionally these are
touched with colored enamels, and the
shapes are most interesting. One has a
swan's neck handle attached toadeep bowl.
The curved termination is tilled with fili
gree. Other spoons are more like shovels
In fancy spoons perforated liowls have
succeeded jierforuted handles. Thesespoons
retaiu the form of the teaspoon, but are in
tended for olives. Some of the larger spoons
have the liowls formed of a spray of silver
rose leaves. The leaves are admirably
adapted for the purpose.
Silver, gilt and Russian enamel prevail.
In the latter articles, the Moscovite crnr.e
that is occupying the attention of Euro
pean jewelers to so great a degree seems
to have worked a great influence.
A Delicious Nut Pudding.
One cupful each of molasses, chopped
suet and sweet milk, two aud a half cup
fuls of flour, one cupful of seeded raisins,
one pound of English walnuts, a quarter
ofapouudof figs chopped, a grated nut
meg aud a teaspoonful of soda; mix and
steam two hours and a half. A fine sauce
to eat with this pudding is made as fol
lows: Beat to a cream one-half cup of but
ter and one cup of powdered sugar, whip
one cup of sweet cream aud beat it into the
butter and sugar; put the whole iu a double
porcelain kettle over the lire and beat it
until it looks foamy and smooth. Add a
wineglassful of sherry and h.ilf as much
good brandy and seud at once to the table.
After having them thoroughly cleaned

a cup of boiliug water, add a little sugar,
cover with another dish aud bake iu a slow

them a few times with the liquid. Serve
w-ith cream and sugar.
Cold boiled potatoes make a winter salad
well liked by many people. Mash three or
four medium sized potatoes and mix thor
oughly with the yolks of two bard boiled
eggs, two teaspoon rula of salt, one tea
spoonful of mustard, three tables poonfala
