the first to declare himself a billing can

county convention, through the olamas
of the morning paper. Sturgeon evi
dently pins his faith to republican in

present. Future inovations will no doubt
be accompanied by the advent of other
candidates. Then we shall see who will
have the pul.

St, Louis Republic.
A slrocg arraignment of the republican
party of Illinois is made in tbe letter of
Hon . William C. Kueffner. of Belleville,
published in today's Republic. This let
ter was written a short time before tbe
state convention of tbe Illinois -republicans,
which renominated Gov. Fifer. It
was a protest against that renomination,
and was in line with Gen. KueHner's
public attitude at that time. In this
coirrr unicaiion Gen. Kueffner strongly

Jattd ptrty faith and pepetuated party
. This letter constitutes an incident of
Illinois republicanism. And there is little
room to doubt that it constitutes also us
conviction and sentence. It was written
as a judicial and unimpassioned expres
sion ot wbat might be expected if Illinois
republicans, after their repeated breaches
of CO od faitb, should force upon a laree
and powerful element witbin the party
tbe renomiation of a man whose official
and political record on tbe question at is
sue would be tbe adding of insult to in
jury. General Kueffner leaves nothing to
chance or speculation in treating this
phase of tbe question. He indicates tbe
processes of reasoning through whicu
tbe dis-s fleeted republicans will reach tbe
conclusion that revolt is better than sub
mission. Since the letter was written Governor
Fifer has been renominated. Tbe condi
tion which General Kurffner feared, and
evidently foresaw, is upon tbe party. Tbe
issue is at band. General Kueffner has
aid and done nothing to indicate that bis
views have been changed, of bis conclu
sions in any way affected, by the work of
tbe convention. On tbe contrary be baa
refused to become a party to It by refus
ing to accept tbe position of Illinois Elec
tor at large, which that convention ten
dered him. He is no way identified with
the party which, with brutal tyranny, in
sists on forcing upon himself and others
of his faith a candidate wbo represents to
tbem everything distasteful and unworthy
of their support.
This letter will have a permanent place
in tbe Illinois campaign. As indicating
the sentiment of a large body of Illinois
republicans last spring it may be taken as
evidence of wbat tbey think this summer
and wbat tbey will do next fall.

TO TALK WITH 3IARS.
M'KINLEY ' WILL ASK QUESTIONS
ABOUT PROTECTION THERE.
Io Trusts Sell Goods SS to SO Per Cent.
Ckpr to Foreigners Than in the 'Pro
tected Homo Markets?" Is Now Ready
for the Mara Statesmen.
Apropos of the announcement by Edi
son that it may be possible to converse
with the inhabitants of Mars, when that
planet in August approaches to within
about 35,000,000 miles of our humble
sphere. Major McKinley has prepared a
set of questions which he hopes the in
habitants of Mars will kindly answer in
time for campaign purposes here this
falL McKinley's absolute faith in "pro
tection," with its reciprocity safety
valves, as the promoter of civilization
and the forerunner of the millennium
has led him to attempt the novel plan of
going to Mars for campaign material.
The following are some of the questions
now ready to fire at the unsuspecting
I am Major McKinley, author of the
McKinley tariff bill of course you have
protective tariffs there? Yes. I sup
posed so, I wish to ask a few questions in
regard to protective tariffs.
Are those big marks which cross the
surface of your planet at right angels at
intervals of every few hundred miles
really canals to facilitate communica
tion and commerce, as our free trade as
tronomers suppose, or are they immense
tariff walls to obstruct trade and foster
Do you make your tariff walls strong,
high and absolutely prohibitive, or do
you leave reciprocity holes in the back
door for the benefit of foreigners who
will open similar "cat holes" in their
Do you put a high duty on wool to
make it dear and on tinned plate to
make it cheap?
Do you take duties off .of sugar be
cause they are taxes upon the consumer
and leave them on steel rails because
they are taxes upon the foreigner?
I suppose each division on your planet
lets in a few foreign goods just to give
foreigners an opportunity to pay its
taxes. Can all countries get rich in this
way? What ones can?
Do you ever admit that the consumer
pays any taxes at all?"
Do you encourage manufactures by
putting a duty on raw material?
Are your manufacturers grateful for
the protection they get, or do you have
to "fry the fat out of them every cam
paign? Have you a "Fat Fryer's Guide" that
is, a list of protected millionaire manu
facturers like our New York Tribune
has published to aid in raising camxaign
Do you not find that competition will
lower prices faster when restricted to
small countries than when spread over
the entire planet?
Do your protected manufacturers ever
form combines or trusts to prevent com
petition, restrict production, raise prices,
lower wages and bring your whole pro
tected system into disrepute?
Do these trusts then begin to sell goods
25 or 50 per cent. cheajH-r to foreigners
than in your "protected home markets,"
depending ni-on the tariff to prevent
home consumers from reimporting these
Do you ever aid manufacturers in sell
ing cheaper to foreigners by paying
drawback duties i. e., refunding duties
paid on raw materials when such mate
rials are being exported iu a manu
Ciin you hetp the farmers in line by
giving them all tbe liogus protection and
shoddy reciprocity they want, while
their farms are declining in value and
are mortgaged to death?
Do you succeed in getting the jeopie
to believe that you are making nearly all
of your own tinned plate and employing
thousands of American workmen, when
you are really making only 1 per cent,
of all, and this mostly from imported
plates and bj imported workmen?
Do you keep men on the free list and
succeed iu making laborers believe that
they are protected by a tariff on what
Why is it that labor in unprotected
industries always gets better wages and
has steadier employment than labor in
Here in the United States we have
protection against the tianper labor of
Europe; but, strange to say, in Euro
the low wage countries all have protec
tion against the high wage country
England. Have you got a good argu
ment to explain away this apparent in
consistency? Do yon have the same
trouble on Mars, or do the facts there fit
the protective theory?
Is cheapness a curse?
How do you make it appear consistent
to encourage inventions to make things
cheap and protection to avoid the curse
Wouldn't it be better to destroy ma
chinery, railroads and ships in order to
prevent cheapness and to provide more
emploj-ment for labor?
Is it possible that trade is beneficial
that is, to both parties?
What is your remedy to prevent wage
reductions, strikes and lockouts in pro
tected industries like the Homestead
works in the midst of a presidential
Have you ever increased the number
of your millionaires more than 10,000
per cent, in any thirty years, as we have
Do you allow any but millionaires in
your cabinet and senate?
Do the poor there really make laws, or
only obey them?
Some of these questions may seem
trivial or even silly to your advanced
minds, but please do not neglect to reply
promptly on that account, for we want
to enlighten the free traders here before
November, and some of them don't yet
understand first principles such as pro
tection taxes the foreigner.
She Named the Baby.
What to name the baby, particularly the
first baby, is often a hard question. So it
proved in tbe Morse family. The father
proposed to call the newcomer "Ebenezer,"
after its grandfather, but Grandfather
Morse said no. He had never liked his own
name, and "didn't want the child saddled
with . it." He thought "Francis," . the
name of a long dead uncle, would be a
Grandmother and Grandfather Peevy
had each chosen a name from their family.
As for the two aunts on the Morse side and
the three uncles on the Peevy side, their
views were all settled and all different.
Little Mrs. Morse sat smiling in the
midst of all this discussion. When her
opinion was asked she always said, "I
haven't thought of calling him anything
but 'Baby' yet."
"But, my dear, you can't keep that up
forever," said the family conclave.
"No, I presume not," replied Mrs. Morse,
Time went on and the little wonder was
almost six months old. Then one day Mrs.
Morse said to her husband at dinner, "I
named the baby this forenoon, George."
"You what:" ejaculated Mr. Morse,
with his fork poised in midair.
"I named the baby," repeated Mrs.
"Why what how did it happen t" asked
the astonished husband and father, gazing
blankiy at bis smiling wife,
"It was very simple," said Mrs. Morse.
"You see the census man came, and after
he'd asked me how old the baby was, he
said. 'And bis name, please' And lefore
I realized what I was saying I told him,
Geotve Henry, Jr., and he wrote it in the
book! I think it's the best name for him,
and nt any rate the matter is settled now."
Between her calm assumption that a
census book entry was unchangeable and a '
father's natural pride in having his name '
perpetuated, Mr. Morse concluded that J
after all it was well the census taker had
come just when he did. George Henry, '
Jr., is quite as happy as if his name had
leen the result of great deliberation.
THE BABY IN THE CASE. '
Twas midnight In the sleeper .
And all had gone to rest: !
For four long days they'd traveled j
Far from the RMen west. j
Weary, tired and wanting sleep.
They'd Just betron to dose.
When long and load, with plerclns;
A baby's cry arose.
Tw jnst a three months baby.
With luncs enough for ten.
And one by one that youngster's cry
Awoke those sleeping men.
Then some began to curse and swear
And from the curtain peep.
With Iarn the child! Confound that
We've paid to gef some sleep."
Trying to bnsh the little one.
His face with sorrow stamped.
. Still up and down the sleeping car
The youthful father tramped. J
Then a crusty western magnate. t
With anger in his eye, I
Burst forth in furious temper
At the baby's piercing cry:
"Take the brat to mother;
She ia the proper nurse:
I guess she's in another car.
Asleep without this curse. j
"Where is its mother? Hang itl"
Hut the father sadly said.
"My wife la in her coffin
In the baggage car ahead."
Then a hush fell on the passengers.
The anirry man grew mild:
Go sit with her, my friend:
Give me your little child."

This was the "Tartar's bow," used by the

says, describing a battle lietween Anrnng

Ueeeber'a Aversion to Titles.
Some one asked me, "Why did Mr.
Beecher so persistently decline the title of
Doctor of Divinity?'" writes Mrs. Henry
Ward Beecher in Indies' Home Journal. .
1 know no reason except an utter aver
sion to S'ath a thing as a title to his name.
If others accepted the title it was their
right, and in addressing tbem Mr. Beecher
always used it. He used to say that such
prefix titles as judge, general or doctor
designated ail individual's duties or call
ing, and were more of a convenience than
anything else, and in some cases were al
most a necessity. And "reverend" for a
clergyman might lie classed in that cate
gory. His views are expressed in a letter
of declinature of that title, now beside me,
and which I copy:
Peekskii.U Aag.SU 150.
To the President and itoard of Trustees of Am
Gentle E-v I have been duly notified that
at the last meeting of the Imanl of trustees the
title of 1. I. was conferred ujkiu me.
It would certainly i;ive me treasure should
any respectable institution bear such a testi
mony of cHxl will, but that Amherst college,
my own mother, should so kindly remember a
son. is a peculiar gratification. Hut all the use
of such a title ends with the public expression.
If the wish to confer it be accepted, for the
rest it would be but an encumbrance, and fur
nislf an address by no means agreeable to my
taste. 1 greatly prefer tbe simplicity of that
which my mother uttered over me in the holy
hour of infant consecration and lutptism.
May I be permitted, without seeming to
undervalue your kindness or disesteeming the
honor meant, to return it to your hands, that I
may to the end of my life be, as thus far I
have been, simply

I.WKi years later, in the time of Columbus.
In 2,O"0 years the world had in reality
retrograded rather than advanced.
It was the popular lielief in the time of
Columbus that the world was flat, though
many contemporary scholars thought dif
ferently. The great civilizations of the
world at that time were grouped around
the Mediterranean sea, although England
was a considerable power, and the Scandi
navians were a great maritime people.
But Europeans at that time knew but lit
tle of Asia and but little of Africa, and
America of course was undreamed of.
Even after Columbus had discovered tbe
latter continent he was perfectly oblivious
of the fact. He thought Hayti was Cipan
go, or Japan, and for a long time regarded
Cuba as a part of the mainland of Asia.

The late Patrick Henry Cowen, a promi

the story of bis admission to tbe bar. The
committee met at Ballston, and young
Cowen was the only candidate. A mem

a single question will determine the legal
qualifications of tbe candidate. Young
man, can you name the best brand of
champagne?" "I can," responded Cowen,
"but for fear that your honors may sus

of you a sample that will vindicate my
judgment." That satisfied the committee,
and Cowen was admitted. He kept his
