The Journal has in the past year

egonian that Is taken In every part of
the state as the postolllce records

1. It Is a clean paper.

poses currunt poll tics, corrupt methods
and corrupt men in all parties.
It supports aggressively the GOOD

in all parties It attacks the evil
wherever It finds It.

He Possessed the Necessary Nerve.
A good joke is being told on one of
Marion county's officials. It seems
that on -Saturday evening he was out
rather late and, accompanied by a
friend, dropped In at a popular res
taurant on his way home and ordered
supper. While awaiting the arrival
of the same, in tho conversation that
ensued he exclaimed to ills friend In a
very cool manner. "You have not
nerve enough to shoot through a fel
low's hat!" Now the friend is a fel
low who dislikes very much to bo
represented as a coward and, coolly
drawing a 48-calibre revolver from his
hip pocket, pointed tho weapon at his
friend and discharged the same. The
bullet went true to tho mark and
grazed the scalp of tho auburn-haired
official uncomfortably close. Tho bul
let found a lodging place In the wall
of the restaurant. Our genial county
official will no doubt refrain from
extending such a challenge in the
future, or at least will remove his hat
from his head before the firearm is

at Los Angeles, has been before the

Black And White.
Dnder tho tcxt"Black'90 and White
,97," Rev.Copeland, at the Dnatarlan
church, Sunday evening, said somo
very pointed and, to a believer In re
form, pertinent things. For instance
he pictured the year '00 blacker than
one could hardly Imagine, showing
physical disaster, Hoods, tornadoes,
tidal waves, nundations, epidemics of
suicide and disease, conflagrations,
cruel wars and massacres, political
upheavals and sick nations. He said
our nation is sick; banks and business
firms are failing.men are unemployed,
women and children arestarvlng.busi
ness Is stagnated and the nation is
really sick; no political doctor seems
able to cure it; some have thought
they had the cure, but it is gravely
doubted whether any permanent ie
llef will be-the result. The man who
stands by and tacitly permits tho per
petration of cruelties and atrocities
will in the end suffer, so will a nation,
so will the Dnlted States, for standing
by.while a nation of patriots are being
slaughtered, their only crime being
that they love liberty.
The lecturer said he was an opti
mist and not a pessimist and he saw
hope of better times In '97 and '98,the
chief sign being the growth of co-operative
works; co-operation is to be the
opening wedge to better times; It may
dull tlie eage to nercest competition
;irl he one of the needed iieaitti re
storers to tuu sick, uauiuu.
Some reasons why good times don't
Fears of tariff changes.
-Too great expectations.
Fear of more sliver agitation.
Because people are slow to forget
An Iniquitous Democratic adminis
tration. The depleted condition of the work
lngmen. The menacing outflow of gold.
Tho constant drain at the gold re
serve. The uncertainty of bank securities.
The fact that millions are in old
The inclination to hoard money.
The uncertainty of future legisla
tion. Farmers are a year behind instead
of a year ahead.

vanced by tho McKinley press ought
to satisfy any intelligent American
