not to abandon tho fight for tho in

caroful inquiry into the subject, an
amendment to tho constitution will
be prepared and introduced by
Hall, known as tho sixteenth
amondmont and is as follows:
"All taxos, as well as duties, imposts
and excisos, shall bo uniform
throughout tho United States,
provided all por capita tax shall,
and any other tax bo apportioned

Their LIvob Full of Dangers, Sufferings
Trying .Experiences of tho nearer of
the Gospel Message to the
Tanana Indians In
Many volumes could be written
about tho dangers, sufferings and
hardships of Christian missionaries.
Sometimes the hardships are more
difficult to bear than tho dangers. It
is thrilling and inspiring to bo always
ready for martyrdom; but to suffer
steadily from bitter hardships, without
the spico of danger from human
enemies, is harder, and quite as do-serving
of the crown of reward.
The missionary in tho remoter parts
of Alaska knows what these hardships
arc. Mr. 1'rcvost, a missionary to the
Tanana Indians, has perhaps tho largest
missionary "parish" in the world.
It covers more than ono hundred thousand
square miles; ond Mr. Trcvost
has traveled, with dogs and sledges,
fifteen hundred miles on one trip to
preach the Gospel.
With dogs and sledges, we say; but
this docs not mean that the missionary
rpdo. He ran behind 'the sledge, for
the clogs had enough to do to draw the
food, clothing and blankets without an
additional load of human beings:
"Of course," said Mr. Prevost, in giving
an account of his work during a
visit to the state of Washington, "there
is a handle on tho rear of the sled, and
wo can take hold of that in order to
keep up with the dogs, which make
about twenty-five miles a day."
Like tho apostle, this missionary
might truly say that he had not run in
vain, for the Indians give proof of having
heard him, attentively. On ono
occasion a party of Tahana Indians
traveled more than three hundred
miles with sleds and dogs, in order to
bring to tho mission station at Fort
Adams tho dead bodies of a woman and
child, that they might receive Chris
tian burial. Other Indians have journeyed
four hundred miles in order to
receive religious Instruction from Mr.
This missionary has induced theso
boreal Indians to build houses and
adopt some of the ways of civilized
life. He has a priuting press, sets his
own typo, and issues a uewspaper
twico a year. This is twice as often as
ho receives any news from the outside
world. He did not hear of the last
presidential nominations until eleven
months after they hud taken place.
Although tho missionary welc.omes
hardships, ho is not averse to using the
resources of civilization in the propagation
of the Gospel. There are two
thousand miles of navigable water, in
summer, in the Yukon river, in his
"parish," and he has hopes of obtaining
an electric launch which will enable
him to make more rapid journoys
in His work. Youth's Companion.
A BOGUS CANVASS.
A Gold-Due Attempts to Show How the
Next Congress WU1 Stand on the SUver
Tho Now York World announces
with a great deal of flourish that
"there is no possibility of a froo coinage
bill passing either tho senate or
houso of tho new congress." It, of
course, prints this information under
headlines in which tho friends of silver
nounced as crazy. Well informed
havo not expected a free coinage
bill to go through tho congress which
will sit on tho first Monday in December.
Even if the tendency wero in
that direction in tho legislative branch
of tho government, the certainty of a
veto by President Cleveland would be
discouraging to It.
Tho announcement which tho World
makes, though, is on testimony which
is not worth the paper on which it is
printed. It is on the report of tho
"sound money committee" of the New
York chamber of commerce, which assumes
to have mado a canvass of the
senators and representatives, and to
have ascertained that only
senators are for free coinage, and that
tho houso will stand this way: Free
silver, 88; against freo silver, 210;
doubtful, or views not known, 52.
The naraos aro not given in detail,
but from the summing up by states
many palpable errors aro shown. For
example, all of tho twenty-one congressmen
from Ohio are set down as
against silver and for "sound monoy."
There aro only two democrats in the
delegation Messrs. Layton and Sorg.
Mr. Layton is thoroughly committed
to tho freo coinage of silver. He presented
himself for renomination on
that principle, and lives in a community
of democrats who would not havo
preferred him, at tho time of the convention,
had he not made a free profession
of silver views. How Mr. Sorg
would vote we do not know. In tho
last congress ho was looked upon for
awhilo as having a leaning toward
free coinage, but this notion got a
good deal of a setback when ho supported
tho proposition to issue United
States bouds specifically payable in
