DEATH OF EX-SENATOR THUBHAN.
In the death of ex-Sons tor Thurman,
the Demooratlo party loses one of its
ablest exponents, and the nation ono of
its greatest statesmen. Although he
had retired from active life some years
ago, he at all times took a deep interest
in the polioy and sucobsb of the party
with which he was so long associated,
and which he had honored by his ability
Born in Virginia and educated in
Ohio, he began the practice of law in
his 22nd yoar in that State and rapidly
rose to position and honor. After serv?
ing a term in Congress he was eleoted
chief justice of the supreme court of
Ohio, distinguishing himself both as a
law-maker and jurist, and refusing re?
election in each instance.
Distinguished as Mr. Thurman's ser?
vices had been before, it was as a
United States Senator that he earned a
most enviable roputatlon for learning
and ability, as well as a warm place in
the affections of the people of the South,
for whom he stood as a strong bulwark
of protection against the hostile legis?
lation of radical Republicans. Pure
and incorruptible In bis public and pri?
vate life, and firm and uncompromising
In defensoot the principles which he ad?
vocated, he well deserved the title of
Noble Old Roman bestowed upon him by
his countrymen in admiration for his
strength and integrity of character.
His days on earth are ended, but the
history of his life will long adorn the
annuals of his country, and he leaves
behind him an example which the youth
of the land may well emulate if they
wish to earn the respeot and admiration
of their countrymen, and tho esteem of
those who value devotion to principle
and integrity as the highest, elemen ts in
TAXING ADULTERATED LARD.
Following is tho substance of Mr
Berkeley's bill taxing compound lard
recently introduced by him in the house
"It imposes a tax on compound lard,
or any imitation thereof, of 1 cent per
pound. It also requires that the in?
gredients of the substance be given and
that the article be branded. The taxes
and penalties under this act all go to
the payment of Confederato pensions."
The bill is to aid In providing pen
slonB for ex-Confederate soldiers,and but
for tho fact that its constitutionality is
emphatically denied by those in a poai
tion to know, might do much towards
aiding a olasy of worthy and brave men,
whohavo risked their lives and sacrificed
their health for tho state. It is esti?
mated that ab least S">0,000 annually
can be raised tbrough the bill for tho
purposes do3igned without taxing tho
peoplo, whllo at tho sumo Urno it pro?
tects tho public health in the way of
Congrees wrestled for a long lime
with Mr. Hatch's oloomargarlno bill,
which was finally passed; but it is very
doubtful If the powers of tho Stake can
reach as far, or c.von enforce tho law, if
passed. Tho bill is along tho line of an
internal revonue tax, and infringes
upon tho powers delegated to the gen?
eral Government. If a special tax can
be imposed on adulterated lard the
same could bo dono t j buttor, tobacco,
sugar and coffee.
The refusal of Senator Cameron, of
Pennsylvania, to be a candidate for re?
election, is received with regret by the
friends of silver in both houses of Con
gress. Apart from bis ability and the
preBtige of his name, his retirement
will be an actual loss to friends of silver
in the United States, as his successor,
whether ex Postmaster Goneral Wana?
maker or Governor Hastings, will be an
advooate of tho gold standard.
The Democratic State central com?
mittee of Indiana, at a recent meeting,
?endorsed Govornor MatthewB as the
choice of tho Democrats of that State
for President. He is an able man, and
a strong advocate of tho enforcement of
tho Monroe dootrlno, but, among other
. objections, is the fact that his State was
captured by the Republicans at the last
Jt is rrported from Cleveland, Ohio,
that a political combination has been
formod in New York among certain
politicians to scouro tho nomination of
Senator Quay for President. Falling
in this the nomination will, It is said,
bo given to Speaker Reed. The com?
bination is probably not so much to
nominate Mr. Quay as it is to abut out

The Appeal to the Mlsilonary Uoard For
Help Meets a Response.
Boston, Deo. 18.?The news that
the Amerioan missionary board had
cabled an appeal for help is regarded in
missionary clroles here as undeniable
evidence of the desperate need of those
who have suffered from Turkish depre?
dations and have been deprived of every?
thing they possessed by murderous
Bev. Judson Smith, D. D , secretary
of the American board of foreign mis?
sion commissioners, Bald to a repre?
sentative of The Associated Press that
the statements are entirely creditable.
Although information shows the num?
ber killed to reach 50,000 since our
latest advices wore sent, there has been
a number of addition al massacres, which
may bring the total up to 100,000, as
stated in the appeal.
Dr. Smith then alluded to the relief
work of the missionaries of tho board
and said they had been much hampered
by lack of funds. "We trust," he con?
tinued, "that The Associated Press will
send the appeal broadcast throughout
tho land, as the delay in receiving
money is causing so much misery and
destitution'among the unfortunate suf?
ferers. I will write Miss Clara Barton,
of the Bed Cross organization, to take
up tho distribution of funds Imme?
Up to to day Sll,07G has been ro
oeived by those in charge of the relief
fund. Tho money is being cabled to
Constantinople as soon as recolved.
