Several hundred letters of sympathy and encourago

ill their possession. These endorsements of the most

Tvfcose only defence for slaying the people's chief was
Ihat he was out of a job. Some of these communica

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

liave the names of these traitorous hypocrites who come
e our shores swearing allegiance to its people, profess

chance to strike it down. The people are entitled to

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."
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

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

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.
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.
