Democratic-Northwest. NO SUGAR DUTY. II lh Saga Tax Is Kratored There Will He Trouble fur the Democrat. The report came froin Washington on D:. 20 that Congressman Cat chinas, of. Ulssissijipi. Mid: "We can frame a tariff bill which will save from $100 to $150 a year to every family of five persona. In that case si unall tax on sugar would not be felt by the people The proposition to retax this commodity would, I suppose, meet with considerable opposition at the out set, but as it is the net result which must be looked nt, and as the saving to the peoplo wonld be much (greater on other thing!, I think that a tariff on sugar af fords the best means of raising a large revenue without at the same time im posing a burden which would be felt. "The sugar bounty law can be repealed at any time. The sugar bounty was merely a gratuitous gift by congress to any industry already in existence, 1 favor the repeal of the sugar bounty, but in its stead I want to see a tariff placed on the commodity." Theoretically Mr. Catchings may bo nil right, but practically he is all wrong. It is easy to take duties off at any time, but it is difficult to put duties on in times of peace. The Republican party had an ex perience in 1800. It took the people just two months to decide that they had no more use for the party that had put on more duties than it had taken off. Thy have never since changed their minds. Tariff taxation is indirect taxation, and the virtue of indirect taxation lies in the fact that it filches money from the pockets of the people so quietly and se cretly that they do not see it go and sel dom realize that they are taxed. Until J 890 the mass of the people did not know that they were paying a three cent tax on every pound of sugar purchased. They know it now and suspect that du ties on other articles are taxes. No other nrticle that is or can be protected is con sumed so universally and largely as sugar. It will therefore be easier to in crease any other duty than this one. The Democratic party may be true to its platform and greatly relieve the burdens of the people, but if it restores the duty on sugar its days will bo numbered. The Democrats, if they would retain power, must take off and not put on duties. If, with rigid economy, deficiencies occur, they must be met by some kind of direct taxation that will compel the rich to contribute something to the government that for thirty years has been an instru ment for extorting money from the pockets of the people to turn it over to trusts and corporations. Convinced Against III Will. In his message of 1890, just after the country had hit McKinleyism the first time, President Harrison said that there would be neither "wisdom nor justice" in reforming the tariff before tho Mc Kinley bill had had a "fair trial." This implied that, if after a fair trial the popular verdict of condemnation should be repeated, it would he both wise and just to hearken to it. But now he acts like the Irishman who appealed to the court for justico and got it in the shapo of two years in the penitentiary, and who made faces and shook bis fist ut the learned judge pronouncing sentence. Mr. Harrison distinctly repudiates for him self the idea that he represents the whole people, and is bound to carry out their wishes as clearly and legally expressed. Yet he does not plainly say that he will veto any tariff bills that may ho passed, only expressing a hope that none will be passed. It is the clear duty of congress to put such bills before him as speedily as possible. In his letter of acceptance he admitted that some changes might need to be made in the McKinley hill. How does congress know that free wool and really free sugar might not now seem to his better instructed mind to be such changes? At any rate congress ought to go ahead and find out' whether the man who was afraid to veto the depend ent pension bill and the direct tax re fund bill, which put millions of dollars of taxes upon the people, will get up courage to veto laws for removing taxes. We admit that a message from him explaining and defending such a veto would be a publio calamity, but perhaps he could be induced to send in a veto pure and simple and omit the attendant agonies. New York Eveuing Post. Without Haste anil Without Delay. The Democratic leaders are already anxiously studying conditions. They are searching for facts that should be taken into account. They are weighing every suggestion. Even the most dogmatic doctrinaires among them realize now that the responsibility of affirmative ac tion is upon them that "it is a condi tion, not a theory, which confronts us." There is in all this no recanting, no shrinking from the work the people have set these men to do. They are go ing to reform the tariff. They are going to relieve the people of burdens. They are going to put the raw materials of manufacture upon the free list. They are going to make material reductions in the duties on the necessaries of life. They are going to cheapen the cost of living to the people. They are going tc create conditions which will give to the workman more for his wages than he now gets. But in doing this they are going to feel their way cautiously as becomes men dealing with affairs that concern the national prosperity and make no avoidable mistake that can in any way imperil the welfare of the peo ple. New York World. her Voice returned In the Same Manner It Was Lost Fire Years Ago. Upper Sandusky, O., Jan. 16. A pe culiar case has come to the attention of the medical fraternity here. For seven years Miss Ella, daughter of H. B. Hale, a prominent citizen, has been an invalid. Five years ago, during a coughing spell, Bhe lost her voice, and since that time could not speak above a whisper. Scores of physicians were consulted, but none could render her any benefit. AH declared her vocal chords paralyzed. Friday she was seized with a coughing spell, and as her mother came to her as sistance she started to whisper her something, when, to her utter amaze ment, her words came forth as lond as could be wished. Her voice had return ed in the same manner in which she lost it, and she can now articulate as well as ever. There is much interest her orer the case. Lane's Medicine Mores the Bowel Each Cay.

The cable of a suspension bridge are subjected to great strain, and are therefore firmly anchored at each shore end to heavy mossea of masonry, generally ly means of long bars of iron or steel having bolus at each end by which they are liolteU or pinned together. In examining the anchorage of one end of thj smaller suspension bridge at Niagara one of these bant wan found to be broken, and tlio problem of replacinK it was quite difficult, since the wires attached to it bad to have the ume tension when it waa in place ns tbey had when the old bar was intact. The new bar was formed of n piece of steel SO feet long, C inches wide and three quarters of an inch thick, with a hole in one end and provided at the other with a bond bolted to it. This band was designed to pass around an iron bar in the abutment and resist the pull of the wires. When the bond had been placed about this pin in the masonry and bolted to its bar the latter was careful ly heated by a wooden fire in a trough be low it until it had expanded sufficiently to allow the end of tbe wire cable to be con nected with it As it cooled down it con tracted more and mora until at the normal temperature the wires attached to it were strained to the same amount as the others, and in this way a difficult problem waa easily and cheaply solved. St. Louis Globe Democrat. Kipling a an Indian Journalist. In The Idler Mr. Rudyard Kipling gives come amusing particulars of his early jour nalistic experiences. Mr. Kipling, as every body knows! began his literary career in a humble way on the staff of an Indian paper, lie tells how at this period he was painfully shocked at the discovery that n subeditor was paid to subedit and not hired to write verses. ' later on, however, he became an editor and had a subeditor who was "saturated with Elia," aud wrote very pretty essays in the manner of Charles Lamb, when he ought to have been subediting. Then it was that Mr. Kipling understood what his editor must have suffered on his account. Now, however, Mr. Kipling's verse was in demand at least in ono quarter. Rukn-Din, the foreman "of our side," approved of thein, we are told, immensely, lie was a Moslem of culture. He would say, "Your potery very good, sir; just com ing proper length today. You giving more soonf One-third column just proper. Al ways can take on third page." The poet was in very good company for, as ho says, "There is always an undercurrent of song a little bitter for the most part running ihrcuh the Indian papers." Why Kepubllcans Duy Election!. The New York Tribune of Dei-. IS takes Mr. Charles S. Fairchild to task for saying, at the annual dinner of the New England Tariff Reform league, that Republican business men had formed a "habit of contributing vast sums of money to buy elections" and to "under mine the foundations of society." The Tribnne asks: "Mr. Fairchild, do you know why these business men are willing to con tribute to Republican campaign funds? There's some reason for it, surely. They don't do it for fun or because they have no idea of the value of money and are willing to wasto it aimlessly and wan tonly." According to good Republican author ity, the protected manufacturers wanted to pay higher wages to their employees. They imagined that this would not be permitted wider a Democratic adminis tration, so they concluded to pay large sums to an administration that would permit it. Tlio people for some reason did not wish high wages and voted tc relieve the manufacturers from any fur ther responsibility in the matter. This, we believe, is the whole case in a nut shell. Strange as it may seem, more cases of genuine wage advances in pro tected industries havo been reported in the few weeks since than in the two years previous to election. This anom aly has not yet been accounted for by high tariffauthorities. That Free Trade Firm. The flint glass business in several lines has not come up to expectations. Sev eral firms have blocked their furnaces until after the holidays. Manufacturers do not accumulate stocks like they did in olden times. They close down when they are out of orders. This is possible with natural gas, as they are not com pelled to pay fuel rates 'for gas when blocking and they have no teasers to pay. "We" think that when the fire is put in manufacturers should run ftie time fixed and do like George A. Mac beth & Co. ship their products to all parts of the world. This is a free trade firm, the kind the workmen like. Na tional Glass Iludget. . The Moral in Doubt. Rather an odd accident happened to a young woman on Park row on Friday, She was handsomely dressed, wearing for a wrap one of the new double decked, balloon rigged capes of velvet, trimmed with fur and lined with colored silk, She was about crossing the street when two men seized her and began pulling and patting the precious cape with their hands. The woman was badly scared, turned as white as a sheet, and simply stood helpless, gazing at the antics of the men who were dancing about her, and who she thought were highwaymen trying to make off with her new winter wrap, Presently the men tipped their hats and explained that the garment they had been treating seemingly so roughly had been ablaze. Sure enough, there was a big, ugly, black hole eaten out of the velvet of one of the front folds. Probably the wearer in passing some smoker had caught a spark from a cigar or pipe. She thanked the gallants who had come to her rescue and then went on her way, hiding as best she could the damaged part of the garment. It is a question whether the moral of this story is that men should not smoke in the street or women should not wear the new fangled cape. New York Times. It Wouldn't Work. Something impressed him with the be lief that a Republican family lived in the house, and with a cunning smile he shuffled up to the kitchen and knocked. "Good morning, mum." he said to the lady who appeared. "Good morning," she replied pleasant ly, "what will yon have? "Lady," he said meekly, "my name is Harrison Benjamin Harrison and I called to see ef you couldn't give me bite of breakfast." "Harrison? Harrison?" repeated the lady inquiringly. "Yes, 'urn; Ben Harrison they calls me f er short, an 'tain't sitch a bad name aft er all, is it, mum?" "Oh, no," she answered brightly; "iff. an excellent name, but the owner of it will have to get out," and she began to call the dog. "Ugh," he growled as he dodged through the gate, "I might V knowed by that cheerful look of hern she wm a Democrat," and he sat down in an alley to think up a better gag with which to wot; the nnwary. Detroit Free Press. BEAUTIFY THE STREETS. The Advantage of Kmploylng the Land scape l:ucirrr. While It la generally admitted that with in tbe next f.'W year certain radical chanjun will need to be mr.de in tbe KtreeU of lkw; on in the way of new conxt ructions end enlaiyrmentKt!-.!--- who have advanced plans of thin kind t!o not mini to have takio into iicrotiKt the way that och things are considered in Eumpp, thedexir ability of increasing the beauty of our city as well as tbe convenience of our eople. At tbe preseut time two or three proposl tionsare before the lxndon county conn :il, having for their object a relief of tbe ingestion of travel upon the Strand, a thoroughfare which holds much t he wmie relation to London i that Washington street joes to Boston. There have been propositions made to widen the street, which, however, have re ceived little supixirt in consequence of the tremendous exiwnse involved, and there are other propositions to build relief or connect ing streets, which will have the effect of deflecting a part ut least of tiie travel which now passes through the main thor oughfare. But in considering these propositions the artistic effect of the proposed changes has been kept carefully in mind. A plan has been proposed of building a highway a hundred feet in width, into which a great part of the tide of travel may be turned, but it is suggested that this street should be laid out in such a manner as to abolish existing street frontages, so aa to procure tbeerection of new buildings, aud that these new edifices should be built under restric tions both as to height Hnd materials used. More than this, care seems to have been taken in the plans, not only to preserve cer tain landmarks of London, such as one or two of its churches, but to add to the archi tectural effectiveness of these by providing that they shall form the central objects at the ends of broad, oen stairways. In a word, the services of the landscape engineer, as well as of the civil engineer, have been brought into requisit ion, so that tbe money when spent for large expenditure are re quiredshall result in the largest and most satisfactory returns. We call attention to this phrase of the street improvement question because it is one which, it seems to us, should be liorne in mind. In spite of the inconvenience of our thoroughfares there is a picturesquc ness in our Boston streets which does not obtain in most American cities. If we are to obtain needed conveniences, and these can only be secured by large outlays, there is no reason why we should rush rashly in to expedients which huve only conven ience to recommend them, and which have, as an offset, a great deal of ugliness, when by greater care and by judicious arrange ment both beauty und convenience can be made to go bund in band. The general plan of construct ion adopted in Chicago for the World's fair demon strates conclusively that we have in this country landscape engineers whose ability is not surpassed by any muniliers of their profession in any other part of the world. The park systems of Boston are also a proof of thissame genius in the way of artistic de sign, and there is no reason why the same talent might not he wisely employed in the way of suggestion nt least on the subject of new street construction. Uostou Herald, Some Famous I'liruses. A Mme. Cornuel was the original author of the phrase, "No man is a hero to his valet!" One Harel said, "Speech was given tonian to disguise his thoughts." An ob scure journalist invented a phrase that was immensely quoted in rnince as Having been said by the Bourbon prince who was restored to the French throne in 18U as Charles X. He was credited with assuring the nation thut he would not restore old abuses in the following phrase: "Nothing is altered; there is only one Frenchman the more in Franos." "A nation of shopkeepers," generally at tributed to Napoleon I, really occurs in Adam Smith's "Wealth of Nations." "The pen is mightier than the sword" is the say ing of Bulwer Lytton. "A thing of beauty is a joy forever" is from Keats. "The heart that has truly loved never forgets" belongs to Tom Moore; so does The luxury of woe" and "The trail of the serpent is over them all." "To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die" was the pretty saying of Camp bell, and his also is "Coming events cast their shadow before." "Plain living and high thinking" was Wordsworth's ideal. "Hose like a rocket and fell like its stick" was said, incorrectly as smartly, by Thomas Paine, of Burke. "Variety's the very spice of life that gives it all its flavor" is not quite the sen timent that we expect from the excellent Cowper, but he said it. It was he also who wanted A lodge m some vast wilderness," and who declared that "God made the country, man the town." London Tit-Bits. A I.udlorous Error. A certain French family of this city, who are very familiar with the Kuglish lan guage, with the exception of one young man, employ as a cook an Irish girl. The young man is making good progress with his English, but is apt. to grasp at a word somewhat too quickly and to put it into use before he has mastered it. Then, too, he occasionally learns something that has to be unlearned. I he other day be hap pened to go into the kitchen, and seeing the cook putting skewers into a piece of beer asked what tncy were. "Them's skivers, sor," answered the do mestic. "Skivers, skivers," murmured the young man as he strolled away. Shortly after this he happened to be dining out with some American friends. When the meat was brought on and the hostess started to carve somet hing seemed to bar tbe passage of the blade. The quick eye of the young Frenchman took in tbe situation at a glance. and leaning forward be said: "Ze skiver, ze skiver." "What?" said the hostess, stopping sho-t In berwork. "Ze skiver.

Baphael's "St. Cecilia." St. Cecilia has long been a favorite sub ject for painters. The accepted patroness of music, her personality appeals in a spe cial manner to the artist, and to reproduce her features has been the dream of many an ambitious artist.

A New York lady recently employed a solored boy as a man of all work whose name was Lycurgus Jones. "Lycurgus is a rather long name," she said to him; "suppose 1 call you Gus for short."

A woman stood in the toy department of one of the shops holding in her hand a set of china dishes unusually large and hand some. She was looking at it, evidently trying to make up her mind if she wanted it. suddenly her bands were empty; there was a loud crash, and on the floor lay a hundred bits of broken china. There was rush of floorwalkers, salesgirls and cus tomers to the spot. The woman stood st ill, though her face Hushed at the curious eyes Jirected at her. "I broke them," she said to the girl serv ing her. "I am so tired I couldn't hold them. I will pay for them." There was a look in her face which showed it would be relief to burst into tears from sheer nerv )iis fatigue. And an onlooker thought what a weighty gift it would make if one's friends could be presented with the tangi ble showing of just the amount of time, strength, effort, thought aud nervous wear nd tear which their gifts cost. JIow the bit of money would lighteu iu comparison with this accumulation!

Her Point of View in New York Times. Aincrlcias System for Hritain. As a radical I am most strongly in favor of local parliaments and one imperial par liament. This system has been adopted with signal success in America, and it is the only one which really gives the people control over their destinies. Such a parlia ment as we now have is so surcharged with business that it either does not do its busi ness or does it in a perfunctory way. Every reform under our present system takes ten times as long passing as uu elephant does to procreate its species. Owing to this stress the possibility of car rying reforms is almost insuperable, and when we want dozens we have to thank heaven if, in a dozen years, we secure one. By using the weapons of obstruction the classes maintain t heir obnoxious privileges. Although the primary duty of a parliament is to keep watch aud guard over public ex penditure, parliamentary control has be come a farce, and the estimates with all their jobs, their robberies and their extrav agancesare put off until the end of the session, when there is no time to look into them. , Naturally the Tories wish to perpetuate this state of things. It will only come to an end when the radicals have realized that what we call our glorious constitution is a scheme to give the people the appearance of power without the reality and to main tain the classes in the possession of power. London Truth. Increase In Japan. An English statistician has been making a study of the population of Japan, and he estimates that the annual rate of increase in that country is thirteen in every thou sand. On such a basis tbe population will double itself in fifty-eight years. This fact is remarkable when compared with the growth of the countries of Europe. In England the rate of increase is 13.3 a thou sand, hut in most of the other countries it is between six and nine, and in France and Spain it is lower still. In the case of Japan, too, the number of births is lower than in most parts of Europe except France, and the number of illegitimate births is smaller than in any European state. The writer in question attributes the remarkable increase to the development of wealth since the restoration and the decrease of the death rate among children. Hatching Teeth. Dentists say that the greatest difficulty they meet with in their work is tbe match ing of false teeth with the natural teeth of their customers. Tbe tooth factories supply dentists with rings, upon which are Btrung thin metal bars, each carry ing a tooth at its extremity. There are twenty-five of these sample, teeth that rim all the way from nearly white to a shade that is almost olive. Some of the twenty- five usually match the patient's teeth, and at any ratu enable the dentist to match the teeth by application ut the factory. Wash ington Post. Showing Her Coat.

Copyright, H6S, by American Press Associa tion. When on makes plans for convenient bouses it is natural to select those of mod erate cost. Convenience in arrangement means more to those who liva in houses of moderate cost than those which are expen sive. There must be a hall, sitting room, parlor, dining room and kitchen. There must be four or five bedrooms on the sec ond floor. Tbe kitchen of a moderate cost convenient house has about the sains things in it as in the more expensive struc ture, and the bathroom is not greatly dif- ynOXT ELEVATION, ferent. There must be the bathtub, water closet and woshstand. The expensive house cannot have more in the bathroom, though there may be more plumbing distributed in other places in the house. No one can af ford to cheapen plumbing, because when it goes beyond a certain stage of cheapness it passes the danger line, and of course one might better be without plumbing alto geibfr than to have it of a dangerous char acter. As a matter of necessity about as much celi " is needed in a moderate cost house as in e which costs more. The cellar is about as high, and altogether the strain and difficulty of planning the mod erate cost house are greater than that of the more expensive one, and, on theother hand, the matter of convenience is not so impor tant with those who have an abundance of means as with those who are not so amply provided for. As is to be noticed, there is on the first story a porch, over which comes a room on the second story. Back of the porch is a square hall, with a large front door and a window at one side. The hall is large enough and of a shape which per mits of its being used for other purposes than that of a mere passage. A hall which is long say 7 feet in width and 15 or 18 feet FIRST STORY. in length is less serviceable than one which bas about the same number of square feet and has the stairway at one side of it, as is the case in the plan here given. The long hall has the stairway occupying quit, one-half of its width, and thus there is only a passage at one side. When we place a hatrack in this hall it requires some edg ing around to pass through it. At one side of the hall is the parlor; back of that a sitting room, and at the rear of the hall a dining room. There is a little passage shown in the plan which connects the hall with the sitting room. Thus from the ball itself one can go to the parlor, the sitting room and the dining room. At the back of the dining room and sit ting room is the kitchen, which connects with the dining room by means of a china- room and double swing doors. Then off from the kitchen in another place is a pan try. Thus there is about all that could be wished in the way of a floor plan on the first floor of this house, and above there is an ample supply of bedrooms and the equip ment of a comfortable house. Yet above is an attic. The attic bears about the same relation to the second floor of a house that a cellar does to the first floor; it is a store room for what might otherwise be tucked away in the closets and bedrooms on the second floor. In the various bedrooms there is an abundance of space for proper bedroom furniture. CHAMBER LIBRARY 1 SECOND STORY. A house of this kind shonld be heated with a furnace. It is more economical than heating by stoves and grates in more ways than one, certainly as to fuel and labor, and oftentimes in the first cost. The large flue stacks are expensive; a grate suggests an expensive mantel, and thus with the nse of a furnace one does not need so many grates, mantels or flues. As a matter of fact, one would not need more than one flue in a house of this kind unless tbey feel the necessity of a grate and mantel for the comfort of an open fire or for decora tive purposes. Furthermore, the heat from a furnace is more agreeable than from either grates or stoves, in that it is more controllable and maintains a uniform tem perature all over the house, which is hard ly possible with stoves and grate.

THE GREAT SOUTH UilERICAlT; If? ii -AND- StomachLiver Cure The Most Astonishing Medical Discovery of the Last One Hundred Years. It is Pleasant to the Taste as the Sweetest Nectar. It is Safe and Harmless as the Purest Milk. This wonderful Nervine Tonic has only recently been introduced into this country by the proprietors and' manufacturers of the Great South American Nervine Tonic, and yet its great value as a curative agent has long been known by a few of the most learned physicians, who havo not brought its merits and value to the knowledge of the general public. This medicine has completely solved the problem of the cure of indi gestion, dyspepsia, and diseases of the general nervous system. It is also of the greatest value in the cure of all forms of failing health from whatever cause. It performs this by the great nervine tonie qualities which it possesses, and by its great curotive powers upon the digestive organs, the stomach, the liver and the bowels. No remedy compares with this wonderfully valuable Nervine Tonic as a builder and strength ener of the life forces of the human body, and as a great rcnewer of a broken-down constitution. It is also of more real permanent value in the treatment and cure of diseases of the lungs than any consumption remedy ever used on this continent. It is a marvelous cure for nerv ousness of females of all ages. Ladies who are approaching the critical period known as change in life, should not fail to use this great Nervine Tonic, almost constantly, for the space of two or three years. It will carry them safely over the danger.

As a cure for every class of Nervous Diseases, no remedy bas been able to compare with the Nervine Tonic, which is very pleasant and harmless in all its effects upon the youngest child or the oldest and most delicate individual. Nine-tenths of all the ailments to which the human family is heir are dependent on nervous exhaustion and impaired diges tion. When there is an insufficient supply of nerve food in the blood, a general state of debility of the brain, spinal marrow, and nerves is the result. Starved nerves, like starved muscles, become strong when the right kind of food is supplied; and a thousand weaknesses and ailments disappear as the nerves recover. As the nervous system must supply all the power by which the vital forces of the body are carried on, it is the first to suffer for want of perfect nutrition. Ordinary food does not con tain a sufficient quantity of the kind of nutriment necessary to repair the wear our present mode of living and labor imposes upon the nerves. For tins reason it becomes necessary that a nerve food be supplied. This South American Nervine has been found by analysis to contain the essential elements out of which nerve tissue is formed. This accounts for its universal adaptability to the cure of all forms of nervous derangement. Cbawfobdsvilli, Isd., Aug. 20, 'S3.
