The views of eminent civilians should be recognized in opposition to a one-sided mili tary view. When tbe Duke of Wellington, continued Herr Richter, utilized bis military glory and his personal merits to override the con stitution of England, Englishmen de fiantly declared that though he had been victorious in Spain and at Waterloo he should not he victorious against the peo ple of Eugiand.

The manifesto says: "It is not upon great armies but upon those who, preserving the faith rff their fathers, defend faith fully and fearlessly the rights ot the peo ple that we must rely for the basis upon which to place the well being of the nation.” STAND OF THE SOCIALISTS. The Socialists have met and decided to run a candidate whenever there was a chance to oust a Conservative. Where no Nationalist will staud the party will support the Liberal candidate. Asa pre lude to their manifesto the Socialists have scaliered broadcast a ‘‘New Year’’ compliment which is couched, savs the Voss Gazette, in terms more violent than they i ver hitherto attempted.

Tbe land question ought to be dealt with finally by making cultivators owuers and enlarging small holdings. The tenauts would never be satisfied while they had hope of getting laud ior nothing, which hope formed the basis ol the plan of campaign. This plau, the speaker said, was tbe most immoral and most dishonest conspiracy ever de vised in a civil country.

Fouser, for many years infirmary physi cian, on a charge of body-snatching. Dr. Fouser is highly connected here and one of the best known of (’ s Akron physi cians. The specific act charged in the affidavit, is sa.d to have been committed April 27, 1886, and it has been known in certain circles for some time that scarcely a burial took place in tbe infirmary graveyard, but that the boxes, when takeD out, contained stones, or where oodles were taken out trom the poorhouse and started to the graveyard they have not been buried, but al lowed to lie beside tbe grave till after dark. Then they have been taken to a down town office, nailed up and labeled'glass and shipped to Cleveland. Wbat adds gravity to the charge pre ferred against Dr. Fouser is the tact that he has been the only physician who at tended the inmates ot the Infirmary in illfi.-js, and charges are now pending in the investigation to the effect that several inmates in the Infirmary have died Irom lack of proper care.

Others take u more serious view ot tbe matter, but as sert that, the policy of uoii-iuteroourse, if put into effect, would be as injurious to the United States as to Canada, it is agreed on all hands, however, that tue Canadian government, come what may, must maintain its dignity and protect its rights.

The number of site p compared io last year is 89 per cent. The reports of tit - iast few years indicate a constant de crease. This Is attribu t-d by many oi the correspondents to ravages of dogs. Horses and cattle ar** generally report ed iu a healthy cotiduion. A few in stances only oi staggers hi horses aud murrain iu cattle are mentioned. FARM SUPPLIES. The amount ot pork produced com pared to last year iu North Georgia is 88 pel cent., in Middle Georgia 92 percent., in Southwest Georgia 89 per cent., in East Georgia 91 per cent, and tit South east Georgia 101 percent. Ihe percent.of full farm supply of pork produced iu the Stale, according to tho report ol correspon dents, is 62 per cent., or less than two thirds of a supply lor the succi eding year. I he amount of farm supplies purchased compared with last year In Northeast and Southeast Georgia is 91 per cent., in Middle Georgia 84 per cent, and iu South west Georgia 100 percent. The average for the Mate shows 12 per cent, less than the purchases of the year 1885.

Tue average cash price for corn was 69c., and tne time price 930. The farmer purchasing sup plies on time fiays In this way about 42 peroent.cn bacon and 34 8 per cent, on corn (or about four months’ time, which is equivalent to rates ol interest of 126 and 104 per cent, per annum. In this, taken in connection with tbe fact that little more than two-thirds of a provision supply is produced in tne state, is shown one important reason for the bard (line) experienced by the farmer. These ma terials may lie profitably produced at home and the money that is expended for such supplies outside of the Stale is an unnecessary and damaging drain upon our resources. HEED DISTRIBUTION.
