Itles. Tlio West Hide says of tills
rejiert: "II places our erodlt iim a
county on a much lower plain than
the report of April last. From the
olio report we wcio led to hellevo
tlio county was about $11,000 above
the boards. In the last it is about
$10,000 behind." This is a disap
pointing discrepancy, and Mr. 1).
V. Hoars, a former clerk of Polk
county, endeavors to explain It by
pointing to the delluiUeiit list, lie
wtys:"lu tlio published statement
of the ooiiuty, all delinquent last
and all other resources ate given la
full; and also all indebtedness Is
shown up as nearly as possible. The
value of the dcllmiueut list no one
knows, and It can only lm u
pnixlmatcd." The approximation
Is given In tlieaboe table, and Is
plaeod at iX per cent, of the delin
quent tnc. This is not com
prehensible to an outsider. The
property on hleh the tax Is levied
should 1st good for the taxi's, and It
is the business of the sheriff to
onfbivo the collection by public side.
This is harsh, of course, but Justice

A sisicch delivered by Mr. Olad
stone at Leeds some years ago is
resurrected as appropriate to the
present occasion. It is not consis
tent with the expressions of some
of the English newspaiiers, but com
ing from a profound statesman it is
worthy of consideratien:
I will say this, that as long as
America adheres to the protective
system your commercial supremacy
Is secure. Nothing in the world can
wrest it from you while America
continues to fetter her own strong
hands and anus and with these
fettered arms is content to compete
Willi you, who are free, in neutral
markets. And as lonir as America
follows tlio doctrines now known as
llifiMi n( fulr trade, von are lorfectly
safe and you need not allow, any of
you, even your iigmesi siumiieiB
to be disturbed by the fear that
America will take from you your
Itni'OKTH from England show the
unwillingness of that people to
accept Mr. Donnelly's Ilaconian
theory of the Khakspere plays.
Mr. Augustln Daly mentions an in
cident conllrmatory of this fact.
Jlls dramatic company visited the
bnrd's birthplace a week or two ngo,
and one of the party Inquired of the
venerable guide what he thought of
thoMi people who said Shaksjiere
did not write the plays. "Well,
ma'am," said lie, slowly arranging
his Ideas, "there be people all about
nowadays as is denyin' their
Kavlour, and I think thoy must be
the same." This shows that an
attack on the prevailing bard is an
assault on the religion of some
classes. We learn that the name of
Mr. Daly has been enrolled along
with those of Mary Anderson and
Edwin Ilooth as governors of the
Khakspere memorial fund.
Now the salmon llsherman havo
formed themselves Into a trust or
combine, and undertake to exclude
all persons from tlshiug' in the
Bound who are not members of
their association They havo llxed
the price at which they will sell
tlsh, and will not penult anyone to
sell salmon for less than this tlxed
rate. Tills is all right enough if the
public Interest Is to be saerlllced to
the policy of protection. Put a good
thing can be carried too far, and
when every article In general use Is
cornered that a few thousand
operators may make a deal, it does
seem as If the wrong principle
prevailed, and it was time for the
consumer to put in a word.
