We might fill our paper full of accounts of failures and re ports of existing troubles. In fact it is far worse than in the panic of '93, only the people have got used to it somewhat aud do not notice it quite so much . Fanners who before election were getting eighteen cents for corn and expected to get twenty-five or thirty if McKinley was elected are now selling for eight and ten cents, aud hogs are going about the same way. The army of idle men are daily increasing aud the chaitabie institutions are already overwhelmed with ap plications for assistance. Perhaps some of the people will learn something by this year's ex perience. If not, then it is a hepeless case. THE WAY WE BOOM. Failures for week ending Nov. 7, 223.
