About one-half as many steel rails will
lie made this year as could be made, if
they were wanted.
Thk situation in the business world
has not improved. Honey is abundant in
the banks, however.
Boa Rtj.seix says Blaine's intellect is
waning. And Blaine must grin and bear
that, but its an awful tough j.b.
JKeokuk Constitution-Democrat: They
are organizing road clubi in Illinois to
advance the interests of improved high
ways. That is a good move. Some
road clubs wouldn't hurt Iowa.
It is seldom a young politician forges
to the front as rapidly as Congressman
Ben T. Cable has during the last two
years. The state convention elected him
one of the delegates at large to the na
tional convention, one of the highest and
one of the most important positions a
party can delegate to one of its represen
tative members. Rush ville Times.
Probably, after all, the only objection
the Union had to the Hon. Ben T. Cable
giving that diplomatic dinner last week,
was the fact that the Hon. James O.
Blaine was one of the guests. Since the
revival of the Blaine presidential talk, all
the Harrisonian office-holders are ex
tremely sensitive of any courtesy ex
tended to the man from Maine.
Republican journals, with the pur
pose of scoring a point for their party,
have sought to make it appear that the
river and harbor bill recently passed by
the house is extravagant, and that for
approving -a measure proposing sucii a
heavy drain upon the treasury the demo
crats ought to be defeated. This argu
ment, which has been presented in a mul
tiplicity of forms during the past few
weeks, will avail no longer, for the sen
ate committee cn commerce on the 13th
reported the bill with amendments in
rreasing its total by 11,213.000 net. Not
only does the committee recommend this
increase, but in its accompanying report
it affirms the wisdom and necessity of
expenditures for river and harbor im
provements. The latter, it declares,
cheapen freights, and in this way save to
the people much more than the cost of
making them. Doubtless the senate will
agree with its committee, and once it has
done so the contention that the house
acted without the regard for the public
interest in making such a large appropri
ation will become burnt powder.

New York World: The tan If tax on
iron ore is a tax on manufacturers. The
tariff tax on refined sugars is a tax on
consumers. Both should be repealed,
and the proposed bills to this effect
should be passed by congress.
The United States produce about 14.-
000,000 tons of iron ore and import about
1.000,000 tons. This foreign ore is im
ported largely because it works in well
with the domestic product and results in
better .and cheaper pig-iron. Be
cause the American furnaces wanted
this foreign iron and imported it, the
government fined them in 1891, $721,383.
In 1890 the fine was f 868,776. But this
is not all. This is the fine on the im
ported ore. The fine on the domestic
ore, in the form of increased price, must
have been between $8,000,000 and 19,
000,000. It is in this way that protec
tion encourages the manufacturers of pig
iron. No wonder that New England
iron manufacturers protest. The sooner
this restraint npon manufacture is re
moved the more prosperous will be iron
masters of the United States.
The tax on refined sugar is practically
prohibitory. After giving the refiners
free raw material.we protect them against
foreign competition and enable them to
monopolize the home market.
There are few greater barbarisms in
the tariff law than these two taxes. For
the prosperity of the iron business and
for justice to the households of the coun
try both should be abolished.

Mrs. Fowler, of this city, was married
last January to her sixth husband, and
straBge as it may seem, five of them died
exactly two years from their marriage
day. Her present husband has been sick
for the last four months with chronic
jaundice, and was given up by four of our
best physicians; as a last resort he oegan

our reporter that they bad saved his life,
