In the first place, Ameriesa wool has not "dropped from year to year" under this "so-called neeseary protectlam." sad the indastry hbs not lessened importance ouder the regime of the tariff. Secondly. neither this no: any other tariff is i the slibrhtet degree responsible for say fall in the pries of wool.-Helenas Journal Teot us see about that. In 1t,67 a duty of 11 cents per pound was placed on unwashed wool through an agreement between the associations of wool manufacturers and wool growers. There were then more than '7.(I,00,0 sheep east of the Mississippi and Mis ouririvers. In 10t1 there were only 13. 476.(u sheep in this region. In 19:. there were in Ohio 6.7:30,0f shlee'.; in 1870 it .al only 4...18.-O;o n 18f) 4,4J.(Nii0;. in ISt;. 5,!04,0:0; and in 18.) It had but .94I:,0100, though in 1891 it had 4,161i000. A falling off of more than one-third in the state of Ohio during the twenty-one rears of protective tariff on wool, and in that time the populat.on had increased i more than 1,000.(j0. In the meantime the prices of Ohio wools of the various grades have dropped from three to five cents a pound during the last eight rears The figures in the wool market to-day present a startling comparison when we remember that from 1857 to 1iOXi when we had free wool, the price reached as high as 53 cents a pound. It' also appears from the -Woo Book" of 1.1, that the grade of Ohio fleece wools which sold for 13 cents in 19)0 were. worth but 32 cents under the tariff from 1,4:' to 1K:0. So much for Ohio. Now let us look at Montana. In 1886 Montan wools sold at from `3 to `5 cents per pound, rang ing at 24 cents for the best clips. In 1887 the highest price paid was 210' cents, and in 188, the average price was 1) cents. In 188J the bulk of the clip of' the state was consigned on an average return of not more than 13 cents. In 1890 the average price was not more than 17 cents, and this year it thus far averages that or a fraction more. These are figures and facts which the, esteemed Journal cannot refute despite its broad denial of everything. It is conclusively shown that prices have dropped heavily under a protective tariff and it is absurdly useless for our con temporary to explain that this as the result cf a continual glut in the market for many years. it is rte result (A tLe rorrier tr.:n and there is nr getting around :t. A GIREAT AMERICAN. "Ids is the Lincoln of our day," says the New York Recorder in a single par agraph. In the absence of any further reference to the identity of this mean we aasume that the Recorder means the greatest statesman of this time. Per haps the key can be found in these words from a speech of James Russell Iowell before the Boston Tariff Reform club: "I feel myself strongly attached to Mr. Cleveland as the beet represents tire of the higher type of Amer:canism that we have senr eince Liaco WaeS snatched from us. - Every word he says is weghel with what he :e. * * W-e are here to fec litate each other that this man. understands poli i:cs to r.ean businese, not chicanery: plain speakuin, not paltering with .a in a double sense: that he has had the courage to tell the truth to the country without regard to personal or party consequences. D)r. Chauncey M. Depew is regarded by t,:a brethren as a pretty gr./, author itv on republicanism and by the people of the country as a go-ld ;edge of cus tomri and of men. Tr.e harking curs of the reputrhcan press have assailed the publ, ari,, persnai character of Mr. (Cievelund very vigorously in the past, but no amount of party pr jud;ice could keep their great leader from th.e seriti rment expressed at the Washington ban quet in New York: "'f I arm to narre tr e typical A.rer: can, the man who Euves ar-I i- 'A i:r, h-, country ,eyonr.d every ti.r.g ,le-, tr., 'ran v ho, deternm,r -',e .. wci i, d, rectorn i.i duty lei", s .car.ot li e ewerved fro::. the patht tie i .ar, 1.0 'rloggedly jiera.ttent in vhat .e hti-iiews to be Irgr.t -rr.e man who t;r:ns ,rot of ecf, but of ,:s rourtry ni its nee-,.

The latest of such stories is that of the missil thrown at Mr. Oladstone and the riot at the speech of M. Stanley. Our elections are elcited, and there I sometimes a quarrel at the polls. But ther: is no breaking up the meetings of one party by the attacks of the other. Jast after the adoption of the constitution Alexander Hamilton made a speech in the open air in New York. and atones were thrown at him; and in the hot campaigns that preceded the civil war there were sometimes violent in .errau;iocs of political meetings. But the custom of our eamraigns is wholly differ ent. Each ide respects the meetings of the other, and a personal indignity from a democratic opponent to Mr. Edmunds' speaking upon the stamp would be resente noon ail sides as warmly as a republican as sault non Mr. Bayard. ich a scene as that as Iambeth in Lon don, where Mr. Stanley and his wife were driven from the platform by an angry mob. which sought to tear them from their ears ages, and from which they esaped only w.th great deniculty. is wholly unknown in this part of the English speaking world. Yet is seems to be very familiar in the British isa:nd. It springs from the same spirit that makes priz: fighting a national institution, and which made Taine feel that upon a ce tain kind of Englishmen the veneer of civilization is very thin. New FlIh Steries An albino lobster, a rare and remarkable specimen was recenty found in a cargo of lobsters from New Bunswiek.

The danger of small boys fishing for big game was ilinetrated by John Keim, a lad of l3 years. ie stood on the hchnylkiii river bridge at Pottetown, Pa., and in attempting to land a five-pound bens he was pulled over the railing and into the water thirty-five feet below. Friends pilled him oat and found his lag broken. but he got the fish. In the beginning of this esntry a shark was taken at Surinam. and in it was di covered the body of a woman, exeapting the head. Instances are recorded upon good authority of specimens being found in the same sea, one with a sea-calf in its ,..n~r.h . hi, . an n aneath.e with a whole horse, and another with two tunnies and a man. The Norwegian steamer Henry Damois recently, when forty miles southeast of South bhoal lightship, picked up a fisher man in a dory who had gone astray from his vessel. He stated that he had been sword fishing and had been towed several miles to sea by a huge swordfish, which he had harpooned. For nearly twelve hours he said, the fish had drawn him, and when it died he pulled it in and it weighed aboot :3(i pounds. A fish that was exl:bited last century over Europe weighed nearly two tons, and ery nearly re-enacted the part of John's fish.
