The hntx-uacttnent is officially made
by the iLiO'iis au.iitor that he Illinois
etve tux this ear is to be 31 cents on
the $100 i reduction of two cents from
the tax of last year.
It m-y be inferred, and will doubtless
be titi'.red by tbe republicans, thit th s
leduct-on, small as it is. implies a relur
tion of ixpense and an economy of ad
miListra ron ur.aer Governor Fifer. Such
an tnn unceintnt. made at about this
time of tiie year in 188S was used as a
republican argument agiinst the 53-ceiit
tax rate, and with some effect, although
it might then have been answered as ef
fectively as now. The reduction then. as
now, was due to an increased assessment.
To show conclusively that the present
reduction in state tax is due to other
catwa thn a reduction of expenditures
the figures showing the totals of appro
priations m-de by the two assemblies of
18S9 end 1S91 are sufficient. Tbe afsm
bly of 1889 appropriated $7,130,406 and
the as?eintil7 of 1891 appropriated S3 -662.7C5.
n increase of $1 532 299 Oat
of this increase shou'd come the $300,000
appropria'ed for a state exhibit at the
World's Fair, leavine the net increase for
state purposes 1732,299. Tbe state's ex
penditures have therefore been increased,
instead of diminished, under the Fifer
administration to tbe extent of nearly
three-quarters of a million of dotlars.
The long and stubborn fight over the
general appropriation bill between tbe
democratic house and republican senate
of the last sstmbly was fully reported ia
the Republic at the time. It occorre 1
over to many different items that it is
impossible to recapitulate tbc-m here, but
one will serve as an illustration.
The original demand for a World's
Fair apuropriation wa $1,000 000. The
republican senate insisted upon that fig
ura, and G..v. Fifer, who had added to
the appropi iation bill that the money
should be disbursed by his state board of
apriculture, ued his personal and official
irjfluerco both for the million
and the bard. Tbe senate passed
the million dollar bill against the oppo
sition of nearly all the democratic sena
tors, but when tbe bill reached the house
it was cut to $750 000 A compromise
was afterward effected on $300 000. but
the houschid s-.ved the 6tate $200,000.
It also succeeded in reducing senate ap
propriations on several other lines, as
the records will show, but was unable f
prevent the general increase.
The increased assessment explains the
reduced tax. And this increase falls
mainly on farm lands and town lots, for
the republican state board of equaliza
tion, which has just adjourned, left tbe
Pullman company at the old figure and
raised 'be railroad assessment less than
Much Work for Little Money.
A hawker in a down town street was
vending tbe other day a set of ornaments
which had evidently been prepared by a
woman. The ground for thinking this ia
the set itself and the price. It consists of
necklace and two bracelets. The price for
the whole outfit is twenty cents. The or
naments are made of small shells strung
together on threads.
Buy one of these and examine the amount
of 7ork which its construction involved
and see if you think a man could have
made it! The shells are small, and the cal
careous outside has been removed so that
the shell presents only an iridescent sur
face. It must have taken some time and
patience to do away with this hard outer
eneer of the shell.
In the necklace there are four strands of
these shells, each strand containing thirty
shells. This makes 120 shells for the neck
lace. In order to string them each one of
these shells is perforated with four holes.
Apparently these holes were made by hand.
The thin, brittle shells could hardly have
been pierced by machinery. Many must
have been broken in getting the requisite
number for this piece of jewelry. In the
bracelet there are three strands with six
teen shells in each, which makes ninety-six
shells for the pair. The white thread
which joins these Bhella together goes
through small, transparent glass beads.
Here are the statistics for the whole pa
rare: Number of shells employed, 216;
number of glass beads, 2,609; number of
boles which had to be made In the shells,
There is a small tin clasp for the neck
lace and for the bracelets.
Think of cleaning the sheila, perforating
them, stringing them and the beads to
(ether, putting on the clasps, and reflect
that you can buy the whole set for twenty

There was a falling off in hog and
dairy products, while the increase in the
alne of beef products was about $6,
600,000 less than was demanded by the
normal rate of increase prevailing for
the twenty years between 1S70 and 1890.
This general decline of the business c
exporting provisions continues. The
official returns for September are now
before us, and they are anything but
satisfactory to the fanner who has been
basing his hopes on the reciprocity pro
visions of the McKinley law.

The decline has been so long continued
that it has reduced the total exporta

eleven months ending Sept. 00, as the
following table will show:

row as to the prices. The exports of
cattle increased in number, bnt the aver
age price per head in 1S!2 was about
sixty-eight dollars and in 1S91 about
eighty-eight dollars, while, notwith
standing the higher price of cans, the
price of canned beef remained about the
same, baited meat bronc-ht 5 cents in
1892 and a little more than OJ cents ia
1891. Hogs brought sj.7.72 in 1S02 and
$9 in 1891. Fresh meat brought 8,4'
nits in 1892 and cents in 1891.
This is the showing made by the offi
cial statistics of the operation of jug
handled reciprocity on the business of
exporting p-ovisi ns. It is a noteworthy
fact that The Tribune has finally come
to the sage conclusion that it was not
the McKinb " law that was responsible
for the large exportation of breadstuff
in 1891, but the large crop at home aud
the short cr.ps abroad. It reaches the
further conclusion also that the large
crop is accor.utjiblo for the fall iu priees.
If the Mckinley law cannot overcome
such simple and fundamental laws of
nature, what good is it to the farmer;1
Was the act not intcrd"-! to beat the
laws of nature? And is not the farmer
taxed on his clothes and ether neces
saries of life in order that the prices of
his crops may advance?
The Tribune is resorting to the law of
nature, not by way of returning to a
sound mind, but to reconcile the farmer
to ths loss of his export trade. But what
can be its explanation of this decline in
provisions? There was no unusual crop
of bacon, beef, butter and cheese in
1891. On the contrary. It has been shown
that with the exception of beef the ex
ports of these articles fell off from 1890
to 1891, while as to beef the increase of
exports was not up to the norssaL
The truth is that the reciprocity clans
has not helped the farmer to a foreign
market for any of his products, and the
pretense that it does help him is nothing
more nor less thaa gross ignorance or
arrant lying. New York World,

Did it ever occur to the voters and tax
payers that the assessed valuation has
doubled. This ln-ingtrue the taxes have
been increased. It is ttion this plan; a
man pays 5 jer cent, this year on an
assessment of $10,000; next year he pays
three per cent, on $20,000. His per cent,
has In-en decreased and 1oCi his tax and

It has always been accepted that in
northern Illinois, outside of Cook county,
the Democratic vote has not been fully
cast. In many of the counties little or
no fight has been made for county
offices. There has been nothing for
Democrats to vote for with any hope
of success. The northern Illinois coun
ties have f ully 50,000 votes that are never
cast. The presumption is that these are
for the luost part Democrats.
On the state ticket these votes are as
good as any votes in the state and they
must be got out. With them, added to
the strength of the party in the rest of
the state, leaving out of consideration
altogether the enormous acquisitions of
the German vote, Illinois can be carried
by the Democrats by a majority that
will astonish the Republicans.
