MONDAY, JUNE 5 After swallowing the bitter dose of defeat, administered by- Hanna, Senator Alexander is willing to swear that it had a pleasant taste. If the trusts continue to raise the prices of their products, how long will it be before the people will find that the gold standard dollar is a "fifty cent dollar" so far as purchas ing' power is concerned? "The Summit county delegation was loyal to me, every one of them." Senator J. Park Alexander. Perhaps it was well for the Sena tor's peace of mind that the "loyalty" of the delegatio.n was not put to a very severe strain. Administration organs are citing as an evidence of prosperity the fact that some of the trusts are raising the wages of their men five or ten per cent advances which for the most part are simply partial restora tions of previous reductions. If these same organs would publish a list showing how the trusts are arbitrarily raising the prices of everything they sell to the people, the wage advances would appear in significant. "I was slaughtered in the house of my friends," is the comment of Sen ator Alexander upon the result of last week's convention, and yet the Senator is willing to stand up to be slaughtered again. After he has been knocked down and dragged out as many times as his good friend and neighbor, Col. Sanford, the interviews given out by the Third ward Senator -will contain a little more gall and wormwood and a little less political optimism. If the people of Ohio give Boss Cox a grip on the Senate next fall they may as well bid adieu to hope of legislation favorable to their in terests for the next two years. Cox will not be satisfied with controlling legislation affecting Cincinnati. He will be master of the State. The Democratic party will nominate a candidate for Lieutenant Governor whose election will save the State from the grasp of this self-seeking boss. Ohio wants nw Quay. COX'S CANDIDATE. Who is John A. Caldwell? The people of Cincinnati know him well. He has been in local politics for a long time. For more than ten years he has been one of Cox's men. He has gone in or out of office at the gang's command. He has been the obedient servant of Cox, Garry Herrmann, Eud Hynicka and com pany. He was put in congress by the ringsters and promptly relin quished that position when ordered home to run for mayor. He was elected to the mayoralty by a minor ity of the voters of the city, there being three candidates in the field. Then he was retired for awhile, and nowhe is brought forward to make it plain that Cox is an equal partner with Mr. Hanna in the Columbus deal. Mr. Hanna has necessarily prostituted himself to all the enter prises of the Cincinnati bosses; to the election of their legislative and county tickets; and to all their ques tionable schemes in the legislature.

For four years past the Attorney General of Ohio has been .a Republican; Monnett is his name. I am careful thus to intro duce him, because, so far as any recognition of him or his work is concerned, the late state convention was an utter stranger to both. He has been a long time in the courts in a vain effort to enforce, in some de gree, the very law which the Repub lican convention demands shall be executed. He has thus worked single-handed and alone, and of course, with but indifferent success. The marvel is that, under the depress ing circumstances of the case, he has had any success at all. In and through it all, in his heroic put luck less fight, has he had one word of cheer or encouragement from one Re publican politician, or from'a single administration organ? Did the President ever send him a telegram of congratalationashedidMark Hanna at the conclusion of the operations which landed the latter inJ the Senate? Has the Cleve land Leader, or any of its news paper "titmen" throughout the state even lent him a word of commenda tion for trying to put in force a law which by their platform they now say ough to be executed? Did a Republican State convention ever congratulate him in his attempt to do that which that of last week pre tends should be done, as that same convention congratulated Mr. Mc Kinley for letting down the bars of the civil service to the spoilsmen? Is it not a fact, on the contrary, that his every efforfhas been hampered, and his every step clogged, along the line which this hypocritical plank professes that it was right for hini to pursue, with an ill-concealed sneer, a repellant silence, or an open deris ion? That such is the case is too no torious for dispute. But bring these platform-making gentlemen to yet a nearer test of sin cerity. This same Attorney General was a candidate before the same convention last week for another nomination to the same office. His candidacy was announced in speech eloquent in its commendation of his work -in executing the very law which the convention had but just resolved must be executed for the well-being of the people, and what, do you suppose, was ttoe re sponse which the Hanna and Cox combine permitted to be given? Was it the glad cry from the 800 assem bled throats, of "Well done, good and faithful servant?" Not much! He got just one vote out of the 800. That is to say, for doing his best in that which that same body of representative Repub licans had within a few hours sol emnly declared was ;i fit and necessa ry thing to do, he received the approv al of one eight hundredth part of them. What a spectacle for men and angels! A facetious friend of mine while in college, once chose as the subject of his oration : "Radicalism when I gets my drinks, conservatism when I'm asked to pay for 'em". So we nave in umo a party winch is down on trusts in platforms, but not in courts; which rebukes trusts on paper, but not in the make-up of its ticket; which denounces trusts in the abstract, but thrives upon them in the concrete. Can organized hypocrisy well go further ? . But I want to exhibit one more proof of the enormity of trusts in the eyes of the late co nvention. For the office of Attorney General there was still another candidate before it. It was Chase Stewart of Springfield, a lawyer of probity and repute, and a man whose eminent fitness for the nomination in question will be con ceded on all hands. Now it so hap pened that Mr. Stewart was himself the author of the Ohio anti-trust statute which the convention had said must be enforced. It was a natural thing to say: "Who so well qualified to put in execution a law as he who framed it. He, of all others, must know what it means, and can present it to the courts most intelli gently and efficiently." Was he nominated by this gathering of paper-tigers this assemblage of de nouncers of trusts with lip-service? He received 99 vqtes. So it appears that while &X) delegates, represent ing the Republican party of Ohio, are in favor of a platform denouncing trusts, only 100, or one-eighth of the whole, are on record favoring the only two men in the State who have ever done any practical thing looking to the putting down of trusts the one by drafting a law for that purpose and the other by trying to execute it. Of the 100 who thus voted for making this anti-trust deliverance of the platform a living letter instead of wha- it is designed to be an innocu ous, harmless thing, 99 were for the man who wrote the law commended by the convention, and only one for the man who alone, against every discouragement which his party could throw in his way, has tried to enforce it. In other words, whilebut one in eight of the delegates believed in any practical effort for their plat form, those who voted for the man who merely put the law in question on paper, as against the one who en-' deavored to carry 'it into effect, were as 99 to 1. All but the solitary ono kept on the bafo Republican side. ' 'There were niui'ty and nine thai safely lay In the shelter of the Told, But one was out on the hills nn-.iy.

Men ana women sometimes withstand great physi cal violence, but suc cumb to the invisible germs of consumption so small that they can be seen only under a powerful microscope. The starting point of consumption is in the stomach, which, when deranged, makes bad blood because diges tion is not perfect, and in bad blood the mi crobes multiply and flourish. Sooner or later the lungs are at tacked, and in the weak spots the germs begin their deadly work of tearing down the tis sues. Dr. Pierce's Goiden Medical Dis covery stops the encroachments of con sumption microbes. It builds up and fortifies the whole system by aiding the stomach in its man- functions. It assists in the proper assimilation of food. This scientific renfedy cures lingering coughs, bronchitis, bleeding at the lungs, and every other symptom that eventually leads to consumption. Dr. R. V. Pierce, of Buffalo, N. Y., who makes this won derful medicine, gives free, fatherly ad vice to all who write him. Last spring I was taken with severe pains in my chest, and was so weak I could hardly walk about the house." says Mrs. G. E. Kerr, of Fort Dodge, Webster Co.. Iowa. "I tried several physicians and they told me I had consumptions but that I might ' brush it over and perhaps live a good many years. I heard of Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery and I thought I would try some of it. Before I had taken the first bottle I was very much better; I took five bottles of it and have not yet had any return of the trouble. I have also taken Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescrip tion and 'Pleasant Fellets' with good results." When the bowels are obstinate, take Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets. They don't gripe. hibition of monumental hypocrisy, the rank and file of the Republican party will line up at last and vote for this self-condemned,platform,and the leaders will shout themselves hoarse in commendation of this spec tacle of Republican consistency and honesty. They will do this without regard to their present belief or their former conduct on the subject. Those who believe that the trust is an un mixed good, and they who denounce them as the sum of economic and political villainy, Mr. O. C. Barber and Judge Kohler, Mr. Hanna who is the product of the trusts and Sen ator Foraker who is their attorney, all alike and all together, with one accord will declare that the Republi can platform is the embodiment of wisdom and plain dealing with the people. Whoever will consider these facts and yet is fo'oled into voting the Republican ticket this year on the strength of this declaration against trusts, will so vote because he wants to be fooled and notbecause he needs to be. If he so votes, he sins against light. C. R. Grant. NOT IH SOAP TRUST. The N. K. fairbank Company Officially De clare That They Will Not Go In. Chicago, May 26. It an interview today Mr. James B. McMahon, second vice president of the N. K. Fairbank company, speaking official ly in behalf of the company, ex pressed himself af follows: "We are not Kienuiiea in any man ner with the" movement to combine the leading soap manufacturers al though such a movement is well un der way and may eventually materialize. Notwithstanding the conditions in the soap trade are very badly demoralized, the Fairbank company is" not seeking or encour aging any combidation of manufac turers as a means of improvement. Soap prices are relatively the lowest in the history of the trade. The tal low market has advanced fully one cent per pound in the past few months without any corresponding improvmerit in the selling prices of soaps, hence the present movement towards combining interests. Any combination embracing the princi pal manufacturers throughout the country, might naturally and legiti mately be in a position to advance soap prices proportionately to the en hancement, of all raw materials, but beyond this effect on our trade we are positively not interested or con cerned in any consolidation of soap interests. We are encouraging our salesmen in all directions to work with perfect confidence in the per manent independence of this com pany of all 'trust' affiliations, and we are pleased to state that the soap trade continues very -brisk, because, aside from the natural effect of the expected combination, the current cost of all raw materials warrants materially higher prices on soaps, and sensible buyers are anticipating future requirements to the full limit of their convenience in carrying stocks."

Most of the business houses have both telephones. We get the Bell tele phone in our office with complete long distance circuit, about 1 miles from, the exchange, for $36.00 per year, single party line, three-year contract. We can get the Mutual for $24.00 per year on a two party line. "Take it any way you will, the price of the two systems is really .considerably less expensive than any city of its size where the Bell alone is used. Advantages. "Now for the advantages of the two systems : "Go into any of th'e busy offices in Akron, nnd see how much waiting you have to do for the usaof a tele phone. Two telephones almost en tirely overcome this waiting. If one phone is busy, you can immediately step to the other, and generally suc ceed in getting your party. If any thing is wrong with one line, the other is generally in operation. "Competition you well know, is the life of trade. With two systems working for the trade, a great many more telephones "are brought into use, hence, the price we pay for the two systems brings us double the service for the money. "How often you have been to the telephone and called for a number and the answer comes back, "They are talking." "You can immediately step to the other 'phone, and sometimes you find to your astonishment that the other telephone was not in use at nil, and the girl at the exchange has a com plete check on her operation. "Then, again, there being two rival systems, both are put upon their greatest strain to keep them in per fect operation. The exchanges are compelled to give you good services, or their 'phone is immediately thrown out. "Upon the whole, I must confess that I am a great deal surprised at the success of the workings of the two systems. I had supposed before I came to Erie that one system at the same price would be a great deal bet ter than two systems, but I have en tirely reversed ray opinion in this matter, and I can say freely that the people of Akron will not regret it if they get competing lines to the Bell telephone.

Some of our thoughtful statisticians are predicting that there will be great disappointment when the populafion of the United States is announced' at the close of the next census. It will be re membered that there was great surprise when the returns of the census of 1890 came in and gave us only 62,000,000 instead of the 70,000,000 we had claim ed. No good reason exists for believing that the growth during the last ten years has been more rapid than from 1880 to 1890. In fact, there has been a considerable falling off in immigration. The total number of immigrants during the ten years from 1880 to 1889 inclu sive was 5,248,568, and the total num ber arriving from 1890 to 1898 inclu sive was 3,539,435. Estimating the ar rivals during the present year to equal those of the two last and adding 230, 000 to the above total, the population has been increased 3,769,435 from abroad during the last decade. Public speakers are in the habit of proclaiming our population to be about 70,000,000. The treasury department, in making its percentages of commerce, circulation, eta, bases its calculations upon an estimated population of 75, 465,000 on the 1st of January, 1899. Last year an almanac maker in New York obtained estimates from the gov ernors of all the states, which aggre gated 77,803,231. The almanacs" and statisticians vary all the way frdm 70,000,000 to 85,000,000 populaiton. The increase from 1870 to 1880 was about 12,000,000, the increase from 1880 to 1890 was about 12,000,000, and, adding 12,000,000 to the total returned by the last census, we have 74,622.250.

ORIGIN OFTHE DOLLAR SIGN. Dr. Msrcna Baker' Theory nnff the Support Which He Finds For It. Several weeks ago Dr. Marcus Baker published in one of the magazines an account of a theory which he has to account for the origin of the familiar dollar sign. This has long been in dis pute. All sorts of explanations have been given, the most common of which is that the initials of the United States are crossed. But there have been seven or eight other theories to account for the dollar sign which are about as good. Dr. Baker, in his researches in the library of the bureau of education, came across an old book entitled "A Compendium of Federal Arithmetic Designed Fcr the Dse of Schools and Especially Calculated For the Meridian of the United States," which was pub lished at Lansingburg N. Y., in 1797. Its author was the Rev. Chauncey Lee of .Rutland, Vt In this book was set forth a system of so called "characteristics," by which one vertical stroke was to designate the mill, two vertical strokes the cent, these two crossed by one curved stroke the dime, nnd for the dollar a sign con sisting of two verticals combined with two curved strokes, now so familiar, was proposed. At that time the people of the conntry were just emerging from the use of pounds, shillings and pence, each separated in writing by a space from the next denomination. It seemed necessary to Mr. Lee to have an arbitrary mark for each of the denominations of our monetary system. Bat he soon found that one character, with the aid of a decimal point, was all that was necessary, and in the lat ter part of his own book all of the elab orate system of symbols except the one intended to mark the dollar was found to have been dropped. Dr. Baker certainly finds the dollar sign in this old arithmetic and does not find it in use at any earlier data By the time Adams' arithmetic was pub lished in 1805 the symbol had become well established. Dr. Baker therefore regards Mr. Lee as the inventor, and believes 'the sign to have been absolute ly arbitrary in its origin. Since the publication of his paper in one of the magazines Dr. Baker has re ceived many letters on the subject, but none in which his conclusions are chal lenged. He intends, for further verifica tion, to make a study of the depart mental records to see when the dollar sign first appeared in the treasury ac counts. He also hopes to make a more thorough search of the old textbooks to see if by chance any use of this sign prior to that of the Rev. Chauncey Lee can be discovered. Perhaps some of the descendants of Mr. Lee will be able to find the author's manuscript, in which case additional light might be thrown upon the subject. It is certainly interesting to know the origin of a thing in so constant use as the dollar sign. Dr. Baker's discov eries seem likely to take all the senti ment out of the matter, but this is the common result of modern historical re search. Washington Letter. WOULDN'T BELIEVE IT. He Thought Yonntr Jease James Mnat De a BIsr 3Ian. Heroes c"ome and heroes go, but JesEO James goes on forever In spite of the fact that One or two eastejn newspa pers were much put out because he was not convicted, whether or no, in his recent trial for train robbery, he continues the idol of numerous wor shipers, who gather about his shrine daily. It was the most considerate act of his life when he deserted the court house and set up a cigar stand- on' Ninth street, where his admirers more readily reach him. The unassuming appearance of the young man, however, does not always satisfy those who call upon him. He is considerably less than seven feet tall and has nothing of the countenance of a Corsican brigand. He has proved a sore disappointment to many novel reading small boys, who expected to find him clothed in velvet, bristling with firearms and studded over 'with diamonds as big as Ben Davis apples a la "Sealskin Sam, the Deadwood Plunger." A blase youngster, fatigued with the unsatisfying imaginary characters of 5 cent" fiction, entered young James' cigar stand the other day with the evi dent intention of inspecting the "real thing." He invested 5 cents in chew ing gum as an excuse for his coming and then glanced about in search of the popular hero. Nothing resembling his ideal was in sight, and he looked disappointed. Jesse Jases was behind the counter, grinning with an under standing born of many similar inci dents. "Say," inquired the boy. "are you Jesse James?" "That's my name," said Jesse. The youngster looked him over criti cally. No 'diamonds, no velvet, not a pistol nor a dagger in sight, no scars of battle, no trusty rifle with notches in the stock to indicate the foes that had fallen before an unerring aim. The boy'.s upper lip curled disdainfully and n "you can't bunko me" expression came into his eye. "Jesse James nitl" he exclaimed, and stalked out. Kansas City Times. Ilnmor 111 the Controversy. The controversy about ritualism in the church of England is diversified by some amusing contributions to the dis cussion. The struggle is so full of grav ity nnd bitterness that an occasional bit of humor, especially if undesigned, is welcome. The record of a newspaper writer who described a certain London church as having seven acolytes sus pended, filled with burning incense, is almost equalled by a reporter's aver ment that he saw in a ritualistic edifice eeveral disused thurifers lying in a heap in the corner of the vestry.
