They have a lively hope that the

as they did, through the folly of Mr.

THE PROiuLEM OF THUE SURPLUs.
All prophecies as to what kind of bill
to abolish the surplus revenues will in
the end pass Congress and go to the
President are mere folly. The Demo
crats have but a narrow majority in the
House and are in a minority in the Senato.
When the Ways and Means Committee
brings into the Houso a bill to reduce
taxes, that will be debated very fully,
and is then likely to be largely changed
before it passes the House. It will then
go into the hands of the Finance com
mittee in the Senate, of which the ma
jority are Messrs. Morrili, Sherman,
Jones, of Nevada, Allison, Aldrich and
H.iscoek, all strong protectionists. Tuoy
will change the bill to suit their views,
and bring it into the Republican Senate
thus amended, where again it will be
fully debated, and when it passes there
it will return to the House to be again
Leading men of both sides believe that
the tobacco tax will be repealed; in fact,
that is generally taken for granted. The
Democratic plan is, thercupon, to add
largely to the free list, by way of reduc
ing taxation and striking off surplus
revenue, because to merely lower duties
on imported articles would probably in
- crease and not decrease the revon ue.
I1EPUInLICANs IN A DILEMMA.
The Republicans, until within a few
days, were determined on one of the two
courses, either to strike off the tobacco
, tax and the sugar duty. ;'hich would re
duce the surplus by about eighty mil
lions, or to repeal the whole internal
revenue taxes. Since they have realized
the dilemma in wbich the President's
message puts them, some of them are
halting to consider the situation. They
are so fully committed to a revision of
the tariff by their speeches and plat
forms that, with the message staring
them in the face, they begin to think it
ma.y be dangerous for them to absolute
l- refuse and resist all tariir amend
WThe message has in fact put the Rie
Spublicans in a bad hole. The problem
the President presented ini it ho pro
* sented to both parties, because the Re
publicans rule in one House, the Demo
crats in the other, and, to get the suir
plus reduced, both parties must act.
The strong presentation of the matter
-by the President has awakened the
country to the fact that the surplus
revenues must be largely reduced to
prevent general industrial and financial
ruin. How this shall be done, Mr.
Cleveland says in his message, depends
entirely on Congress-that is to say, on
the Democrats in the House and on the
Republicans in the Senate; and while he
has given them his recommendations in
the matter, as is his constitutional duty,
he has in plain words p)ut the whole re
sponsibility of action to avert a great
danger on Congress, where it belongs.
rHE DUTY OF 'TmE 110Un.
It is perfectly understood by the Re
publicans that the Prceident will, and
,.~indeed must, sign any bill sent him
which actually reduces revenue. The
longer they consider the President's
message, the more awkward the Repub
licans see is the situation in which it
places them, and the more diflicult they
see their course to be. What conclu
sion they wi,1 eventually reach they do
not themselves know. They camne here
coAvinced that to repeal the tobacco tax
land the sugar duty was their cheap and
; easy way out; but they are not nearly as
sure about it today. Repubicaun mem
bers and Senators from some Western
Republican States have been already
made to feel the prcssure of public sen
timent favorable to tarill reform. T1ho
remarkable course of the .Chicago TJ.ri
buno in promptly anud positively sup
porting Mr. Cleveland's maesage, and in
as plainly opposing Mr. .Bline's plans,
is seen to be not merely the expression
of Mr. Medill's own long held faith in
tariff reform, but to denote also that

POWDEItLY ON JAY GOULU.
A Very Sevure Attack by the Loidr of
Labor upon the Itatlroad Magnate.
(From Ihe Pbiladelphla Times.)
The General Executive Board of the
Knights of Labor yesterday sent out
from the Broad street headquarters the
last secret circular of the order prepared
by General Master Workman Powdrly.
It is in reference to the establishment of
a governmental system of telegraphy and
directs every local assembly of the great
orgamization to issue red-letter calls, ap
point committet s and wait upon every
Congressman in the separate districts
and persuade him to vote for the meas
The steret circular is one of the most
plain over issued by Mr. Powderly, and
makes the most bitter attack upon Jay
Gould and monopolists in general that
has ever been made by the order. It
first rubs the members of the order for
not attending to their duties and work
ing iu tno interest of governmental tele
graph and then tells of the combined
el'orts of the managers of telegraph lines
to su:-press all good and spread all dis
c urtging uews relating to the Knights
S.OnINo JAY UOUL1).
lir owdorly tells of the power of the
Westei n Union and how it stands with
out a rival; how the Western Union has
effectually and easily killed off all com
petitors, and cites, as an instance, the
mert, imgt of the Baltimore and Ohio.
"Jay Gould rules absolutely the desti
nies of the American people," says Mr.
Powderly, "and ho is the practical own
er of that part of the United States
which ho wishes to take."
In speaking of the "capitalistic press"
he says the order cannot ask the press of
this country to bo ind'ependent as long
as it allows monopoly to control both
press and people. Tho circular says:
"Tlte news comes to them ready made
on wires over which the people, the
editors of labor papers and the capital
istic press have no control. We ask of
editors of papers to speak out against
monopoly. if they comply with our
request they are'boycotted, first by the
man (?) who own the wires, whan the
telegraphic news is shut of from their
columns; second, by the very people
who have asked of them to wage war on
monopoly and because 'they do not pub
lish the news.'"
The circular tells how the government
has reduced postal charges to a mini
mum, and how when mistakes are made
in transmission or delivery the govern
ment is always anxious to rectify such
crier. As a comparison it says com
plaint against the Western Union Telo
graph Company is entirely useless; that
1i, unless the complainant has ten or
twenty millions of dollars to back him
"Is ITiME TO \ oti."
The circular says that Jay Gould has
c> 2 just as far as he ought to go in his
career of rapacity. The system he rep
resents can be displaced if the people
lwake from their slumbers. The ate
ounts of the next Presidential election
tay be flashed over wires owned and con
rolled by the people, if they will act at
once. In reference to asking each and
every Senator or Congressman to vote
For governmental telegraphy Mr..Pow
lerly closes the circular with
"When you have secured all the names
you can get send the petitions to the

.Second-The tax on sugar will be cut
mi two in the mniddle. This will throw
elf $27,000,000, unless an increase con
sumption shall result from the reduced
taxation. It may, however, be assumed
thct the receipts from sugar will be $20,
000,000 less than at present.
Third-The placing of tropical fruits
upon thme free list and the lopping off of
taxes above (00 per cent, will make a
further reduction of, say, $33,000,000.
Fourth- -There will be scured by the
changes above suggested a decrense of
i$40,00)0,000 in the tariff taxes. Suppos

of $50,000,000, which is ats great a re

In South Afri*, the disaster of Is.
'dlhwaua gave the soldiers' nerves a
severe shaking, and it often happened
that false alarms at night led to the
rousing of whole camps, and sometimes
even to a reckless discharge of firearms.
In some cases friendly natives, or even
comrades, were taken by the excited
imagination of a sentry for enemies; in
others, unoffending cattle, even a bush
or a shrub, became the innocent cause
of a fusilade sufficient to have dealt
widespread destruction to a host of
Zuius. An odd incident illustrative of
the slightness of the cause-or even,
perhaps, of the absence of any cause at
all-that gives rise to a panic, occurred
on the night of Tel-el-Kebir, amid a
small corner of the force that was
bivouacking on the battlefield. 'The
narrator had crawled into a marquee in
which, with other commissariat stores,
were the rum casks from which the
troops had received their liquor ration
after the fatigues and excitement of the
(lay's fight and previous night march.
Besides one or two commissariat issuers
in charge of the stores, several "odds
and ends" of other corps had found
their way into the marquee, preferring
to rest under its shelter amid the casks
and biscuit boxes than under the open
sky with the sand for a bed. Suddenly,
in the middle of the night when all
were sleeping, a noise and commotion
began in a bivouac outside. Before the
inhabitants of the tent were sufficiently
awake to understand its cause the cur
tains were thrust aside by a red-coated
soldier, who shouted to us to get up:
"The Arabs are in the camp-they are
upon us!" Then he disappeared as
rapidly as he had come. Every one
sprang to his arms, and probably ex
perienced that especially uncomfortable
sensation that is caused by a vague
feeling of an unseen though imminent
danger against which one is ignorant
how to guard. Outside every one
around was aroused and up, eagerly
striving to discover from what quarter
attack was to be expected. Nothing,
however, more unpleasant occurred than
the advent of a staff officer asking the
cause of the confusion. Probably the
truth never (lid reach headquarters.
Afterward, howiever, a report gained
ground-no other or better reason was
ever forthcoming-that the alarm arose
from the screams of a sleeping soldier,
who, overwrought perhaps by the hor
rors of the day, had been fighting his
battle over again in his dreams!
The Limitations or Science.
It may not be amiss for me to supple
ment or qualify the foregoing pages
wi',h a page or two which have a differ
ent bearing. In the first place, let me
say that 1 have ait so much spoken for
myself therein as 1 have spoken for that
attitude of mind which makes science
or exact knowledge possible-a state of
mind which, in our time, 1 am aware,
is carrying things with a high hand. I
know fulI well that science does not
make up the sum-total of life; that there
are many things in this world that
count for more than exact knowledge.
A noble sentinicut, an heroic impulse,
courage, and self-sacrifice-how all your
exact demonstrations pale before these
things! But I recognize the fact that
wit hin its own sphere science is supreme,
and its sphere is commensurate with
human reason; and that, when an ap
peal is made to it, we must abide by
the result. Theology assumes to be 'a
science, the science of God, and as such
the evidence, the proof upon which it
relies, must stand the test of reason, or
be capable of verification. Religion, as
a sentiment, as an aspiration after the
highest good, is one thing; but, formu
lated into a system of theology and as
suiming to rest upon exact d emonstra
tion, is quite anott ' As such it is ex
posed to the terrible question, Is it true P
In other words, it comes within the
range of science, and must stand its
fire. When miracles are brought for
ward as an evidence of the truth of
Christianity, the natural philosopher is
bound to asl;, Do miracles take place?
If our life were alone made up of
reason or of exact knowledge, science
would be all in all to us. So far as it
is made up of these things, science must
be our guide. But probably four fifths
of.life is quite outside of the sphere of
science; four fifths of life is sentiment.
The great ages of the world have bcen
ages of sentiment; the great literatures
are the embodimenta of sentiment.
Patriotism is a sentiment; love, benevol
ence, admiration, worship, are all senti
ments. -Johrn Burroughs, in Popular
A Nice Oalculation.

"The study of human nature," said
Principal Keeper Patterson, of the state
penitentiary at Trenton, N. J., to a
reporter in the lobby of the National
hotel the other night, "iuside prison
wa ls is more interesting than pleasant.
The class of human beings one comes
in contact with is usually so depraved
and hardened that it oftentimes sur
prises even those accustomed to the
life. We believe our system to be us
good as any in existene, and yet we
are not as severe in some ways as the
people of the Eastern penitentiary."
"Are there not a number of crimi
nals sent you who instead should go
to asylupsP Do you not have many
cranky characters to contend with?"
"Well, we (1o in a certain sense.
Criminals are as a rule, one-sided
characters; their moral character is, so
to speak, lop-sided. But it is not the
men who go into the prisons that are
mentally unbalanced; it is those who
come out. The fact is, a man who
serves a tive or even a three years' sen
tence out, is apt to leave the peniton
tiary unsound in mind, if not in both
body and mind. Imagine, for instance,
the life they lead, day in and day out.
To the mess-room in the morning,
where they can not speak a word to
anyone; to the workshop for the day,
where talking is strictly forbidden; to
the mess-room again for supper, where
the same order is enforced; and then to
solitary confinement in their cells.
where there is no one to talk to. Think
of it. Such a life for years! Is It not
enough to drive a man insane? Why,
man alive, you can not realize it; but
the percentage is simply frightful of
those who go to jail strong in both
mind and body and who come out

I at last succeeded in breaking the fever,
but it cost me over $100.00, and thcu my
system was prostra1ted aind saturated with
malarial poison and I became almost
helpless. I finally came here, my mouth
so filled with sores that I could 'scarcely
