IS in. M. M'JRDOCK, Editor LOCATE THOSE ANARCHIST SYMPATHIZERS. Several hundred letters of sympathy and encourago Iplect -were TVritten to the assassin of President McKin ley, -which the authorities, of Auburn prison, yet have ill their possession. These endorsements of the most fiendish act and inexcusable crime that stains the record Of years, were not burned or destroyed, as hasbeen sup Posed, nor were they even seen by the ill-starred wretch Tvfcose only defence for slaying the people's chief was Ihat he was out of a job. Some of these communica tions were indicted for the purpose of bracing Czolgosz sip. There was an ardent fear that he might weaken and in revealing the plot that other necks would stretch. Others of these missives counsel courage, as something Eaight turn up to defeat his execution. All or most of let-m. it seems endorse the, foul murder. Those letters should not only be preserved as possible future evidences fcut the names of all the writers should be given to the public. This is a counting of equal rights, of equal chances and of equal privileges, and every community is Interested in knowing if it is holding and protecting an archists, and who they are. The names of these cow ards undercover are desired for self -protection. This trarming of snakes in the bosom is not void of danger. fThis country of freedom-loving and open-hearted people fcbould be made too hot for any one who is desiring or Seeking to undermine its glorious institutions. Let us liave the names of these traitorous hypocrites who come e our shores swearing allegiance to its people, profess ing a love for the land and for all it stands for in the way bf civil rights and equal opportunities, and only for a chance to strike it down. The people are entitled to iuiow the names and the nesting places of these sneaking reregrades, these traitorous conspirators who hold out an open hand in pretended friendship while concealing a Seath-dealing weapon in the other. O . .. SO LONG AS I SHALL LIVE. Xo doubt Mr. McKinley counted upon years of rest, peace and contentment, in his old Canton home, and among those who had first honored him, and whom he loved, after he had laid by, for good, the worry and re sponsibilities of public life. But how uncertain is every bay and hour of the future for one and all. On going ifrorr. Canton to his inauguration the first time Mr. McKin ley said: "To all of us. the future is a sealed book; 5)'it if I can, by official act or administration or utterance, fin any degree add to the prosperity and unity of our be luvcd country and the advancement and well-being of our splendid citizenship, I will devote the best and most use ful efforts of my life to that end. The assumption of the c:.:f magistracy is of such grave importance that parti sanship cannot blind the judgment or accept any other C"r.:.!( ration than the public good of all, of every party ami every section. With this thought uppermost in my mind. I reluctantly take leave of my friends and neighbors cherishing in my heart the sweetest memories and the tenderest thoughts of my old home my home now, and, I trust, my home hereafter, so long as I shall live." PROTECTION AND RECIPROCITY. This great country 'of ours is more prosperous than probably at any time in all its wonderful history of de vol -pment. This prosperity has come to us directly as the result of the Republican policy of America for Ameri cans, or in other words as the result of a high protective policy. But a few years ago under a different policy limes were hard and Cleveland was borrowing money v.ith which to pay the running expenses of his adminie Aration. Now the revenues produce more money than the country knows what to do with, in the meantime in dividual prosperity is universal. And yet it is doubtless tn:r that a very large minority of the people of this coun try, of those who are themselves prospering lis they never 'did ivfore stand ready to vote for a party and policy tohi' h would inevitably pot the country back to the econ omical basis of six years ago. With these a profitable experience weighs as nothing against a pet theory, the Itlioary of free trade. Tlio Hon. John A. Kasson of Iowa, the well known fii'iomat and tariff expert, made a notable speech in Chicago the other evening before the Illinois Manufac turers' Association on the benefits to bo obtained through the execution of a reciprocity policy. Mr. Kasson quoted tne fallowing from President Roosevelt's speech at Minne apolis: "We must also remember that in dealing with other .cations benefit must be given where benefits are sought" A n port of Mr. Kasson's speech says that commenting cu this utterance, he said in effect: We could not get what we wanted without conceding Bon thing the other party wanted. The unreasonable cti;.fupcd protection with prohibition. They wanted monopoly, and recognized no change, no conditions, not em that the Dingley act itself provided for a 20 per cent r .''". -t ion in its duties to encourage our export trade. 1l. accepted one part of the tariff law and repudiated li.. "t'nr. This was not a party question, for while the li :.:";lkan platform of 189G demanded reciprocity, neither tv iHmoeratie party nor any other party had opposed it. jN w. if on-? party opposed reciprocity because it dia not give free trade, and the other party beeause it reduced i.r.r.i-i eparily hitrh duties, there was great danger at the i t cb ;tion f the fatal overthrow of the principle of l rvteetion its If ." The fight f r reciprocity should not be abandoned fci.nply becauf-" there are tome who oppose it Such op position is either due to mistaken ideas on the subject or t unreasonable expectations and demands. For instance the .same report says: ' T-.irning n--t to the treaties now pending 1 efore Ihe note. jr. Ka?son nrocoodod tn mint .-., tonctssions ha. been obtained by the United States and j 41- counter - . nc ess ions involved, beginning with the 1 nt'sh coionia; treaties.

A MEDICAL REVOLUTION. otr.where there lies an unquarried marble which may ? :"' iav--ed to commemorate the wisdom of the doctor - ' - ci? natK'ETs ;ino nts beaue- he nr.? jk unit! --as ions: ;w , n ri tarR a a : -! T...V aivitrc i as a ::.?.:? ciate of Virchow and Koch at Berlin, according to the Philadelphia Record, seriously proposes to substitute a curable for an incurable malady, or ague for .cancer, the ague, being inhis opinion the more amenable to medical treatment He announces that persons who live in malarial regions are free from cancer, and he con cludes that malaria acts as an antidote to cancer. He suggests the innoculation of cancerous persons "either with mosquito poison "or the blood of patients who are afflicted with other malarial affections." Professor Loeffier shows his lack of personal familiarity with malaria especially in its ague form, when he affirms that "it is established that malaria can be arrested by prompt administration of quinine." Could the disting uished physician be induced to spend a few years in the the bottom lands of one of our western rivers, notably of the Wabash, he would acquire a deeper respect for -the persistence and .other qualities of malaria than he now shows. Whether it would be a gain to escape cancer at the cost of living with an ague is a question on which the opinion of the cadaverous, saffron-hued, quinine-leaf and utterly wretched victims of the latter ailment might be worth taking. Those persons consume barrels of quin ine in the course of their unhappy lives, not because it cures, but because they have become addicted to its use. When dissolved in the fierce product of the western still quinine gives a momentary warmth to the chilled body, though "it rings in the ears like the tones of a bell" and dulls the sense to all external sounds. Perhaps it may give the German physician a more distinct idea of the ague form of malaria to quote from the recent issue of an Indiana newspaper this statement: "Our report yester day of an earthquake shock in this vicinity was an error. It appears that the disturbance was caused by the people along the Wabash, who all happened to have their shakes at the same time." However, it is not the intention here to oppose the principle of substitution, but only to correct a light opinion of the formidable malarial influence. If Professor Loef fier happen to be "death on" any particular disease, and can substitute that for an incurable malady, he should be encouraged to uo it There are surgeons who have be come so expert at cutting away inflamed appendices and so accustomed to finding cause for the operation that a man with a mere stomach-ache should keep out of their clutches. If appendicitis could be made to displace rheumatism, for example, the patient might be quickly cured, and the doc tors could be relieved of the long-standing reproach of their inability to cure rheumatism. Now that there is an antitoxin for lockjaw it would be beneficient to substitute that affliction for chronic dyspepsia, which oceans of remedies have failed to destroy. The principle of substitution is all right. It has the advantage of allowing each patient to choose his disease according to his convenience. For example, the preacher who is afflicted with bronchitis which compels him to abandon the vineyard for months to find relief in milder climates can exchange it, say, for a gentle gout which will merely force him to limit pastoral visitations. O A NEW IMPORTANT TAX DECISION. There is a conviction which is well nigh universal that aggregated capital does not bear its fair proportion of taxes for which reason in part the rich grow richer. That an income tax would be the fairest a majority of people outside of the supreme court, firmly believe. The supreme court of Illinois has just handed down a tax assessment decision which is one of great importance. The court holds that franchises and capital stock of cor porations doing business in that state must be assessed and taxed at their market value. The rule laid down by the court is that the market value of capital stock and of outstanding bonds shall be added together: after deducting from this aggregate the assessment already laid on the tangible property of the corporation in ques tion the remainder must be assessed like any other prop erty. The practical effect of the decision if it is strictly followed by the taxing officers, will be to add to the tax rolls of the state hundreds of millions of property now untaxed. It is said that the 23 "public service" corpora tions named in this case have property, coming within the decision amounting to $236,000.01)0, which has here tofore escaped taxation. Besides these corporations there are the railroads of the state as well as many mer cantile and manufacturing concerns, whose stock and fran chises are clearly covered by the terms of the decision. Strict enforcement of the decision also makes these com panies liable to assessments for back taxes covering a period of twenty-five years.
