claim to represent the people of Kansas,
but it is absurd to f neer at bira as too
small to fill Plumb's place. Senator

Toting with the democrats and denounce

Osaawatomie, where Senator IngalU de
livered the oration, is an ordinary shaft,
not Bore than 10 feet high and disap
pointing to the curious visitor. Of late
it kaa become more a monnment to the
spirit of American vandalism than to the

Two congressmen at Urge arete- be
chosen at the next general election, and
the friends or Hon. L. Conkriie, of
this ity, are urging him to become a
candidate for the democratic nomination
lor one of them. They believe that bU
Iodk experience in the legislature would
make him a valuable representative of
the state in congress. Mr. Conkrite was
a member of the twenty-eighth, twenty
ninth, thirtieth, thirty-second, thirty
third and thirty-fourth general assem
blies and was chaiimm of the appropri
ation committte when the housa was
democratic, in which capacity he render
ed valuable service to the tax payers. lie
was also the democratic nominee for
speaker and was leader of that side of the
house for a number of years. Should he
deaide to become a candidate Mr. Cronk
rite would receive strong support from all
sections of Illinois. Moreover Stevenson
count being the only democratic county
in noriLern Illinois, outside of Coos,
seems entitled to representation upon the
state ticket Freeport Bulletin.
Thb Argus heartily endorses every
thing the Bulletin says above regardisg
Mr. Ciockrite. For the past 20 years he
has been prominently identified with the
democracy of the state, and it is largely
owing to the labor of such stalwart dem
ocrats as he, that the former Urge repub
lican majority in northern Iilino s has
been growing beautifully less in recent
years. As the Bulletin says. Stephenson
county is the only democratic county in
the northern tier, and is justly entitled to
representation on the state ticket, and it
ia eminently proper that its candidate
should be chosen from among its fore
Hoke Mrs rrer.
To the ingenuity of court and lawyers,
as the ' Chicago Post observes,
in manipulating the laws of the state to
suit the eonveniecce of a great man in
trouble J. Findley Hoke is indebted for
bis liberty and the the state of Illinois
a new citizen. Both court aod counte!,
to say nothing of the state or of Mr.Hoke
himself, are to be congratulated on this
happy Issue of a very unhappy epNode.
Five years ago Mr. Hoke, who was at
that time the cashier of a Peoria hank,
made a hasty tour to Cauada. After hi:
departure it was found that he bad em -
be asled $275,000 in csb of his trus'.ing
employers and ptrtners, b. sides sundry
nmall items of personality, bonds, no'es
c hoses in acli in and sue i oilier por
table ropirty as be had been able to
reach. Only the eife and the bank
building were left behind. Extra
dition brought llic fugitive back to
justice und. nu one of the 19 indict
ments, Mr. Hoke was sentenced to the
penitenti'iry for five years. This term
having elapsed the prisoner was rearres
ted at the door of the penitentiary aod
brought once more to trial on one of the
reuminiDg 18 counts. The result
we have already stated. It is not d :nied,
. we understand, by cither court or
counsel that Mr. Hoke stole the $ 275.000
and odd. or that he baa. the grer.ter por
tion of it now; bat a careful review of
the situation ha9 convinced these guard
ians of the law that the interests of the
state will best be served by liberating
Mr. Hoke is accordingly liberated, a
trifle impaired in health by bis irksoxe
confinement, but by no means broken in
spirit. He proposes, it ie said, to sail
presently for Europe and there in com
parative retirement to pass a few years
reflecting on the greatness of his country
and the folly and sinfulness of those
vulgar criminals whose genius is not
equal to the theft of $270,000.

sons in Dr. Goldsmith's little pUy, "is

Last week Major McKiiiley was the
guest and the principal speaker at the
banquet given by the Home Market club,
of Boston, in his speech after the din
ner was over he made a new depart are,
or rather add.! a little new matter to
his old stereotyped speech on the tariff.
Of course he s.tid that the foreigner pays
the tariff rats and th.it bis bill was
passed to raist- the wasres of American
workmen, utt rly ignoring the fact that
in all the imjiortant industries, on the
products of wl ich duties were increased
by bis bill, tho wages of the workmen
have been cut down. The new feature
of bis speech was that portion of it in
which he told the people of Massachusetts
how much they suffered under the rev
enue tariffs from 1846 to 1S61, and how
prosperous the McKinley bill had made
Concerning his statement. The Ainer-
ican Wool and Cotton Reporter has thin ;

hero of the how, and made an eloquent
and interesting address; but while ho ,
was deploring the condition of the conn'

revenue only fimn 1K4B to 1861, the Dem-
ocratic treasurer of the great Amoekeag
mills, who sat cpon the platform and ap
proved the proceedings, could have told
the Ohio staWca lan that the period from
1846 to 1861 as not characterized by
such unalloyed poverty and distress as j Figs. 1 and 2. The

half years front that time to I860 in
which it did ui t pay semiannual divi

the Bay State lLilLs: at Lawrence failed;
but so did a pi.nic occur in 1873, and
in 1880 some very important mills failed.
"The following great textile corpora- j
tious were started between 1S4U and
1861: Atlantic mills, in 1849; Lyman
mills, at HoHoke, 1834; Naiunkeag

CiMtly Tin Mining.
A great many dispatehes have been
sent to Republican papers lately from
the Temescal tin mines relative to the
extraordinary development going on
there as a consequence of Major McKin
ley 'a bill. The last of these stated that
the force of miners bad been increased
by thirty men, tli; t the output of tin was
from three to four tons a day. and that
$18,500 worth was shipped on Saturday
a week ago to St. Louis. A correspond
ent saw a workman just from the mines,
who made the following statement,
which be sjiys can lot be contradicted:
"As to men and lalKirers, the number
has been decreased in the way of Ainer-
icans in the following manner: An oiler
was given a party or miners, say troinjto brood
three to six men, to sink a shaft at twen- !
ty dollars a foot, which was declined for
the reason that about $150 would be all
the contractors could make, in addition
w ul-iub wci miuui;u tuuuuuan,). iiifj
were told if they t.id not take that con-
tract there was nothing else for them, i
The particular party 1 refer to consisted !
or lour American citizens, ana ot course
they had to leave, .uid their places were
at once occupied ly new arrivals from
Cornwall, who were put to work iu the
shaft at six hour t.hifts, for which they
received three dollars a shift.
"Now, as to the output for Angust, it
was 8J tons; for September, 0 tons;
October, 6 tons, ai tl previously, under
V. N. Robinson's Management, about 6
tons, or 22 tons in all. For November
nothing has Ijeen p-oduced, the furnace
having burned itself out. and the repair
ing of it was only finished last week,
consequently we vill say that $11,000
worth of block tin has Ifeeu sold at the
rate of $500 per ton As to 3 or 4 tons
of block tiu being tie output daily, that
is nothing but bosh, from the simple fiict
that the appliances cannot handle more
than 1 ton per twenty-four hours. As
to 30 tons having Ik en sent to St. Louis,
that is one and one-jalf times more than
they have smelted since the millsstarted
up. 1 assert as a fa -t that every ton of
block tin produced of a value of &500
lias cost the compiuy $1,000. and the !
whole thing is a failure." New York j
