Capital is wealth engaged in
trade and industry. To tax cap
ital is to put a burden on trado
and to check industry. Our leg
islators feel this, and therefore
exempt certain kinds of capital
from taxation. But why not
apt on the principle throughout ?
Otherwise, you are constantly
running into ono inconsistency
whilst trying to steer clear of
A tux on capital is ono of thoso
''indirect" taxes which do not
"stay put," but uro usually
shifted. For instance, tho tax
on n mei chant's stock of goods
is passed on by the merchant to
(ho buyer ?nd consumer of the
goods,'in the shape of higher
prices. Biit a (ax on land val
ues stays where it is put.
Beginning with tho old Ho
mans and ending with tho United
Stales, nil experience has shown
the futility of trying to reach
personal property oven approx

as ineffectual as tho listing and
swearing ii n d other devices
which have been so fully tried

Olovohmd ft Sensational President, ft Man
Who ProBUinably Dolightu In Making
?uvprisos -tho Day of Party "W orshtp
Passing Away-Wow Mon, Now
The Rev. Thomas Dixon, Jr.'s ser
mon in Association Hall yesterday,
was preceded by a reviowiug ot the
new administration aboutto bo inaugu
rated mid at Washington, Mr. Dixon
'.We stand again upon tho threshold
of a chango of administration in our
National Governemnt. Thcso aro the
landmarks found at regular intervals
making our National history. Wo
bavo no such thing as a Govormentnl
crisis. Our Government is astronomi
cal. It is wound .ip to run four years.
It runs four yoors.
"Tho formalities of au adraiuistra'
timi chango impress tho oyo with dra
matic importance. In reality they aro
unimportant. Tho real chatgo occur
red timo before ia tho minds of tho
sovereign people. Tho officeholder in
America is merely a servant carrying
out bis master's orders. There is only
ono king among us-tho citizen king.
Tho officeholder is always and only n
Bcrvant, from thc street eleanor to tho
chief of polico, and from tho justico of |
tho ponce to thc Pit ?iden I of tho Re
"With our Presidcnttho people bavo
lodged largo po?er?. Aud they aro
sorely abused. Thc Presidential chair
bas sometimes transformed a second
rato politician into a dignified and pa
triotic statesman for tho tim?.
"Many of our Presidcuts have turn
ed from tho potty demands of party
cliques aud factions and tho noblest
iudopendont aoliou in a consoionlious
effort to represent tho wholo people,
whoso will they per>0i.ily. ,
? -?'resident" H'.irVisinf'hV tuc oioso ot
bis vigorous administration has givon
ii? a striking example of his broader,
nobler view in appointing ns Supremo
Court Judge a man opposed to bis own
party in politics. General Harrison
in that act showed himself to ho Pres
idcut of tho United States of Aniciica,
representing 60,000,000 of pcoplo-not
merely tho figurehead of a political
machine. Tho machino has bowled
most vociferously. Let ithowl. Hon
est and patriotic citizenship rejoices
and writes Harrison's na mo a lino
higher on thc roll of true fame.
"In making up bis cabinet for the
new Administration Mr. Cleveland has
treated us lo a genuine sensation in
.politics. Thc fact is Mr. Cleveland is
a very sensational officer-bo it said to
his honor. Thc little machine tinkers
can never predict what ho will do next.
Mr. Tilden said of him that ho was the
boldest politician bc had ever known.
Ho certainly is a unique forco in mod
ern Am?nent! politics. Ile thinks for
bimst If. Ho carries out the will of the
people according lo Iiis owu conception
of that will-not according to tho die?
tates of a faction. Ho has appointed
Judgo Gresham, an independent Re
publican, Secretory of State.
"To say that this took the breath
away from tho various little machines
would bo to mildly express it. Such
acts on tho part of a retiring President
and on incoming ono of tho opposite
party aro indications of the dawn of a
now day in Amoricau politics. Tho
doy of parly worship is passing away.
Thc day of men and principles is
once more returning. Tho party fetich
has been tho power that during tho
pi?iit generation has well-nigh throttled
true statesmanship. Mr. Cleveland
begins his work well. Ho has little to
bind him to partisan pig politics. The
better clement of our citizenship look
with hope and faith to his administra
"Thc next tour years will bo ovent
ful in tho history of our nation. In
these four years will bo formed tho lines
of real battle along which tho hosts ol
freeman nrc to fight in tho next gene,
ration. Traditions, memories and ghosts
must go to tho rear. New men and
now measures for a new generation and
a new world I Tho coming twentieth
century holds its own problems. Tho
children of tho century must sottlo
thom. With all itu dreams 'imposai?
bio' propositions, I say again tho new
People's purfcy bas sounded tho battle
cry for tho next gonoratiou.
"Lot tho old partios shut their eyes
to tho. foot if tboy will. It ls aniong tho
possibilities that this party of tho masses
as agaiust tho classes will eloct tho
uoxt President. The riso of this party
duriuij: tho past four years to tho poll
of a mill Jon votes was a mirical in
Amoricnu politics. If tbo old parties
do not heed some ol its demauds, their
doothkiiell will bo sounded within tho
lifo of tho incoming Administration.
Lot no young man bo blinded by n
display of power in tho passing moment.
Tho powor that rules to day may be
thrust into obliyion to-morrow. Tho
Tammany that rules supremo to-day
may bo a sticking memory within a
decade. Tho now administration may
fall at thc encl of four years never to
riso again. Truth and right nlouo en

Tho idea seems to be gaining ground
in cot tain quart ors that owing to tho
enormous expense of pensions it will bo
impossible for tho Democrats to roduco
tho Tar li; and that they uro now ot? tho
ovo of ahnndoning tho-attempt, to cn
gogo in u free Gght over tho coinage
Wo know of no good ground for such
! nu opinion. Tho Democrats will cor
I toiiily pitt through thoir Ta ri if Reform
bill he (oro thoy toko up ary issuo on
whicli a party division ?3 possible. Any
other courso would ho to foolish that
tho putty adopting it would invito de
feat. Tho Democrats will not do it.
They aie as determined now us they
were lust your that tho duties of tho
McKinley bill shall bo lowered to a
strictly revouuo basis. This moans, of
oourso, that they aro determined to
make a tariff that will give the largest
posnblo rovonuo by encouraging tho
largest possible trade.
It is true that tho cxponsc of pan-*
siotis is now enormous, but tho moans
of raising tho money lo mcot tho ex
penso involves n question that cnn host'
bo settled without regard,to tho ques
tion of reducing tho tariff duties.
It' ll is found that moro nioiiov must l o

of pensions, ibero will bo two poifcctly
practicable mothods of raising it-by
inoiousing tho whisky tax or by impos*
ing a tax oh incomes. It may lo that
one or both of theso taxes will hocomo
necessary, but it is hoped that it will
bo possible to check tho expenditure
for pitisiotis beforo it gols much beyond
tho present unparalleled figures.
Tho income tax is n less evil than
tho prohibitivo tarilf tax, and if it
should bceomo necessary to levy it lo

There has not boen tho least chango

That mystic powor which aways
mon's hearts, wbother they will or
not-how sweet and yet how strong
its influence 1
And how thankful wo should bo
to our Heavenly Father for this
precious gift; not for that only
which emanates from costly instru
ments, but for that also which,
though humble, is no less sweot.
From each rock and treo by the
roadside como tho songs of birds,
thrilling our hearts with exquisito
joy. Ah, how sweot aro tho happy
woodland birds I And tho human
voice-what is sweotor, purer than
tho joy of some young spirit find

Thanks to tho Divino Master for
implanting in our hearts this lovo
What other gift could Ho have
conferred upon us that would add
to our happiness as this does?
Oh, music, thy power ia indoed

and sore oppressod, thy voico can
roll away tho burden ; when our
wholo being is swayed by uncon
trollable passion, thou canst calm
tho troubled waters, and when tho

Oh, music, thou art indeed a

ascond to hoightsofjoy before no'or
droamed of, can cora tort the siok,

said a hundred times that if anybody
will talco charge of all tho poverty and
crime which result from drunkennesp,

which needs out-door reliof in tho city
