Barter's Weekly very truly sas that
the "wildcat" outcry of the republican
organs and spellbinders is absurd, "first.
because modern conditions m ike wildcat
currency impossible; and secoud, because
Congressman Harter, author of the mea
sure to repeal the tax on 8 ate btnk cir
culation, is one of the soundest of the
sound money men in public life." II ar
per's Weekly might have added that Mr,
Cleveland's character and record are the
best possible guarantee, if any ia needed,
of a sound currency system while he i
president of the United States.

The following letter has been received
by Joseph W. Ky, of New York, from
Judge John P. R-te, formerly commin
der of the Grand Army of the Republic
My Dear Sir and Comrade. Iu an
swer to your favor of the 27th mat.. would
say that I distinctly reuiemher meeting
you at the Ebbitt house in Washington
at the time to which you refer, and of
spenking with you of my most satisfac
tory interview with President Cleveland
on the subject of pensions Tour state
ment of wlut I said is substantially cor
rect. I well remember that the inter
view with President Cleveland conclu
sively couvinced me that he was not an
enemy, but a friend of the Union soldier.
Be listened with great interest to my
views on the subject of pensions and
when I was done, said: "What you say
the soldiers want is in accord wnh
my views and is right." I stated to you
and to many others at the time that
1 bad never talked with anyone on the
subject of pensions whose views corres
pond more nearly with my own. He was
earnest, full of sympathy, and in that, as
in everything nine, almoin'!.:'-, Ii"iies n

at any time since, when occasion offered,
failed to express my opinion of bim in
this regard or to defend him from the
charge of being an enemy of the Union
soldier. I bave felt keenly the injustice
of that charge, and have felt humiliated
by the fact that any intelligent soldier
should believe it. There is no issue in
this campaign on the subject of pensions
No one can consistently ask more liberal
legislation than we already have. Never-thele-s
I take pleasure in writing ou
this letter in the interest of truth, and to
indicate an honest man from a most
malicious and unjust aspersion. Sin

tire extracts from speeches of
leading republican statesmen on the
tariff, and they tell their own story.
They can be multiplied indefinitely by
quoting from such men as Judge Gresb
arr and Wayne McVesgh, who bave re
nounced the republican party this
year on the tariff score:
James G. Blaine During the entire
war when we were seeking everything
on earth ut of which taxation could be
wrung, it neyer entered into the concep
tion of congress to tax breidstuffs

lumber ever became the subject of one
penny of taxation 1668
Undoubtedly the inequalities in the
wages of English and American opera,
lives are more than equalized by the
greater efficiency of the latter and their
longer hours of labor. 1881.
President Grant Many duties now
collected might be remitted.
I would meulion those articles
which enter into the manufactures of all

from the consumers at home, but act as
a protection to foreign manufacturers.

Oliver P. Morton The country ex

years the wholesale price of Ameiican

not want a duty continued that enables

A reference to these nation.-il festivals of
ancient Greece calls to mind their extraor
dinary duration. There is no modern par
allel to them in that respect. We reckon
our derby, our universit3" boat race, our
Kton and Harrow cricket match to !e ven
erable institutions, but they are very
ephemerel observances, in sooth, com
pared with, say, the Isthmian frames,
which, founded iilxiiit li. C. ftt'iO. still con
stituted three centuries and a half later a
sufficiently important anniversary for Fia
minitis to select it ns the occasion for pro
claiming the liberty of Greece in I?. C.
and two centuries and a half later still for
Nero to repeat the proclamat ion in A. D.
67. Such permanence puts to shame the
life of a dynasty, and there is certainly no
important event in our sporting world
which derives its oriin from the year 11(00.
Hut there is another remarkable feature
about these jatherings namely, the un
chaneini; character of the performance en
acted at them. Assuming the era of Homer
to have been five centuries earlier than the
Inauguration of the Isthmian games that
is, about B. C. 1000 the sports which ho
enumerates ns taking place at the funeral
of I'atroclus were identical not only with
those of the Olympian, remean and Isth
mian celebrations, but strangely similar to
a programme of the present day. Chariot i
and foot racs, boxinu, wrestling and put
ting the stone are counterparts of competi
tive exercises of the Nineteenth century.

aanie they may masquerade. AViiether '

when they find themselves members,
learn that they have U-en led into a

Pearl ltiittofi in l"rion.
In liis letter of acceptance President'
Harrison sjnike with peculiar kindness
f the pearl button industry, which had
seen wrested from pauper hands abroad
ind put in the way of employing hun-!
ireds of American laborers at American J
rates of wages. Within a week after
lis letter appeared the pearl button fac- .
lory in Chicago su-jK-nded liocause, as
:ho chief owner said in his application
for a receiver, the business could not be
made to pay in this country. But the
Republicans have found a way to make
t pay. They arc making pearl buttons '
with convict lalior in the state prison at
Chester. Right there, under the bands
T sixty men convicted of crime, is the
snly flourishing pearl button factor in
America to-day. Is that what Presi
Jent Harrison meant when be congratu
lated the country 011 the "transplant
ing' of a foreign industry? How is
American labor or the American nation,
profited by rejecting the Austrian pearl
tiuttoiis anil paying three times their
price for the crime-stained product of
American prisons? Lincoln Times.
The talk about wild cat money" is
ill folderol. This country never takes
ny steps backward. Soft-headed peo
ple who believe that the Democracy
would reinstate slavery and palT the
Confederate war debt, if again in jxises
ion of the reins of government, may be
persuaded to believe in the "wild cat
money'' scare. Sensible people know
that our national bank currency is
based on our indebtedness and is safe.
Likewise state banks in the south.
where there is a demand for a greater
circulating medium than now exists,
the new currency in all probability

bonds in the treasury as collateral secur
ity, the same a- government lioiids are
now placed iu t he national treasury as
collateral security for the money issued
to national banks.
The south was run in debt many mil
lions of dollars (luring the interval of

The best tobacco in Siam is grown at
Petchabuu. It is planted in open fields
near the town after the floods in Septem
ber or October, and the first crop or tips,
which is considered the best quality, is
gathered about February and the last
about the beginuing of May. The very
best quality cannot be purchased, as it is
reserved for the special use of the king and
sent down to Bangkok, where it is smoked
in the palace and distributed to the chief
oflicers of state. Philadelphia ledger.

"The most ridiculous weapon known to
modern warfare is the bayonet," said Colo
nel Michael Galloway. "Civilians seem
to suppose t hat the bayonet plays an im
portant part in all battles that the tide is
invariably turned by this romantic, hump
shouldered frog sticker. Now as a matter
of fact you could bury in a ten acre lot all
the men who have been killed with the
bayonet during the past century, and the
graves would not be crowded either. The
bayonet is supposed to transform a regi
ment of musketeers into a Macedonian
phalanx for close fighting, but it doesn't.
It supplies the place of neither the spear of
Greece nor the short sword of Rome. It is
a hybrid weapon, fit only to prod camp loi
"A regiment will come sweeping up to a
breastwork with fixed bayonets, but once
inside the men turn the butts of their guns
or go for their side arms. They realize
that the bayonet is but a dress parade
weapon. In our modern battles the an
tagonists seldom come into actual contest.
Battles are now fought with bullets in
stead of bayonets, and the latter, always a
clumsy affair of doubtful ntility, has be
come an altogether worthless incum
brance." St. Louis Globe-Democrat

The Czar at Home.
The czar as a family man is an example
for other European mouarchs. He pusses
bis evenings with his faniily and often
reads to his wife while she embroiders. His
love for his wife is very great, though not
perhaps so great as in former years when
at a court reception in Paris In 1867 be met
Eugenie, and on being asked who was the
most beautiful woman present turned his
back on the queenly empress and pointed
to his own wife. Exchange.
The great mountain ranges that extend
along the Pacific side of the continent from
Alaska to Chili, and which contain many
volcanoes and earthquake centers, suggest
a ready line of communication for such dis
