Orover Cleveland is now theonly ex-President living. We fail to see the good of discussing Canadian annexation untill Canada shows a disposition to ask for it. The French ministry have yet to learn that making war on newspaper men always puts a public man under suspicion. Cabinet lightning-rods; arc being erected in places that might be sup posed to be free from any danger of being struck. Persistency isn't always rewarded. Witness the twenty-fifth annual con vention of the woman suffragists re cently held at Washington. That war of Democratic Senators upon Mr. Cleveland does not exist outside of the Imagination of writers for Republican newspapers. After this unusually cold winter the Republican office holders ought to be well prepared for the blizzard that will strike them In the spring. Newfoundland dogs are likely to be in great demand among the fathers of disobedient girls. One of tbem stopped an eloping couple the other day. " OnlV long-tongued people can lick a Columbus stamp at one swipe, and nobody likes to be called long-tongued, hence the kicking about the size of the stamps. Mr. Cleveland's experience may result in announcements of the elec tion of future Presidents bemsr accom panied by the suggestive words "no prtsents." Judging from some of the Republi can talkaboutthe composition of Mr. Cleveland's cabinet, the "silly season" has been transferred from midsummer to midwinter The idea of official investigation of the "social evil" being ordered by Congress is altogether comical. Too many Congressmen are already pri vately engaged at it. Some people are awfully hard to con vince. , Gov. McKinley says the peo ple of the foiled States still believe in hih protective tariff. Then they vot ed contrarv to their belief, eh? Congress in considering the ques tion, of opening the World's Fair on Sunday has a good idea of the sinner who was told that he would be "damn ed if he didn't, and he'd damned if he did." Senator Hill says: "Mr. Cleve land, as a President, will have no trou ble with the opposition." Does that sound like aman who intends to lead a fight against the President elected by his party? Somebody has been comparing Dan Lamont to Frank Hatton. There is no comparison between the two men; Dan Lamont has more sense and judgment, to say nothing of integrity, in one day than Frank Hatton will have the rest of his life. It must be a great consolation to the average republican to know that MeKinley, the man whodid more than any other one individual to lay the g. o. p. out, "till retain hi courage. lion Txgkksoi.l ban put Shakespeare oil the shelf and now worships at the lirlii Voltaire, and the people who ttn In l.Hr him talk about hi new god are paying him liberally for his idola try. Mr. Out-of-a-job I.igtoii, the pro feional negro who once misrepresen ted a Virginia Congressional district, is an ardent advocate of the establish ment by the Government of a National University for the negro and be doubt-' less thinks he is just the man to drr w the salary at the head of such an iusti tution. Bro. A. J. Kohaf-ffer, of the Jour nal, Spencervllle, is a candidate for Division Revenue Collector In the 2d Division of the 10th Ohio District. He is making a bard fight for the place, and if good work will tell, he certainly will be the successful appli cant. Bro. SchaeflVr is competent and has the necessary qualifications for the place, coupled with a demo cratic record second to none. May he win the race. Reports have been circulating to the effect that the Hon. Frank H. Hurd had been offered a position in President-elect Cleveland's cabinet. But Mr. Hurd denies them all and says he has sbCbeen offered a cabinet position nor hhS he sought one. But let this be as it may, Mr. Cleve land could not select a more fitting man as one of his counselors than the Hon. F. H. Hurd, who is the original tariff reformer of Ohio, having advo cated a low tariff ever since the close of the late war.' Should a cabinet position come to Ohio, citizens regard less of party would be glad to see Hurd honored. The most radical bill ever presented In the legislature on the subject of tax ation was introduced last Thursday by Welsh, of Knox. It provides that when any person refuses or fails to list for taxation any notes, drafts, checks and bills receivable he shall forfeit the same to the State, and debtor upon payment of 40 per cent of such notes and bills to the county treasurer shall be icleased from further obligation or liability. The same strin gent provisions apply to persons loan ing money and making notes payable to an unknown, and if payee cannot ba found this is to be conclusive evi dence of intention of lender. Persons convicted of having money on hand aud not listing it for taxation forfeit 40 per cent, of the the amount, 80 per cent, of the 40 going to the person furnishing the evidence and 20 'per cent, to the treasurer of the county. The use of fireballs saves one-third coal and is common enough in Kng land from the laborer's cottage to the lodgings of thrifty gentle women in Bath and Cheltenham. Made of one third coal dust, two thirds sand and beaten clay, molded with water into balls the size of a goose egg and dried, they are permanent fuel. When the coal Are is hot and red, a dozen of these balls put into the furnace will become red hot and stay so like red hot bricks, keeping up the heat far longer than coal without them. There is nothing like them for keeping the house warm at night, and half a dozen put red hot into a brazierorportable furnace would take the chill off bed rooms very com fortably. When rooms are heated by stoves economy lies in never letting the fire go down in cold weather, as it takes more heat to warm the rooms when the walls are chilled than it does to deep them so for days. The Toledo Commercial has a novel way of distorting two news items out of one "fake." It fakes an item, you know, and then secures auother notice n the following issue by a refutation, which, we doubt not, is, in many cases, written simultaneously with item No. 1. Such questionable transactions may pass muster for a while, but the story of the boy who yelled "wolf furnisher a little analogy in this case that it will not be well to overlook That leprosy fake Monday did Tole do's morning paper no good, notwith standing a general retraction appeared Tuesday. Not satisfied with publish ing the groundless tale in the Com mercial, its state editor got it in the associated press dispatches, and the world at large looks upon us as a sort of leprous community. Work of this nature can not be termed news, and only serves to injure the authenticity surrounding newspaperdom, which is not at auy too flood a tide for com fort. The celebrated will of Benjamin Franklin is going through a process of law in Philadelphia. It will be re membered that Franklin devised one thousand pounds sterling to his native city, Boston, and a like sum to Phila delphia, his adopted city. These sums wsre to be kept at interest for a centu ry and then the accretions were to be used to aid poor artisans. Franklin calculated that at the end of one hun dred years the enormous sum would be in possession of the two cities. If h9 had lived to carry out the scheme there is little doubt that his arithmet ical calculations would have been right. If the sum had been kept at six per cent, compound interest it would have amounted by this time to over one million and a quarter of dol lars for each city. As it was managed however, Philadelphia has but $100, 000, and an effort is being made to di vert this sum from the purposes to which the great philosopher had dedi cated it. Mrs. Elizabeth D. Gillespie, who has recently been appointed ad ministratrix has instituted proceedings in equity to have the fund paid over to Franklin's heir. It is contended in the bill the divine is illegal because it vests in the city at a period under that allowed by the rule of perpetuities and also that the authorities have come to the defense of the trust. Bocrke Cockkan does not Relieve that "any Democrat from New York is going to embaras Mr. Cleveland's Ad ministration." He strangely says, in an interview, that "any enemy o Mr. Cleveland cannot be friendly with the New York Democracy" nd adds: "I believe that the future of the Demo cratic party lies with Mr. Cleveland, He has put the party where it l to day; he has already proved himself the man of the party, and the New York Dem ocracy will support him in every way." Pension Commissioner Rau.m now claims that it will require $172,000,000 for pensions in place of $165,000,000. Garfield said they never should exceed $36;000,000. The sum is now more than six times Garfield's estimate. The trouble with the national finan ces does not arise from a falling off in the revenues, but from a continuous increase in expenditures under a reck less ard extravagant Republican ad' mist ration. "VERITAS," Oar Bright Rldgevtlle Correspond dent Sends l's a Grist of News. Jan. 23. Mr. K. E. Tressler, one of Mr. Jno. Sfoneld's clerks, is now absent at Toledo, for a short time taking les sons in German conversation. On his return he will resume his old place for which he hopes to be better prepared as a result ot his s'udv. Mr. Will Cole of Fulton Co. has been holding meetings for a few days past at the residence of Wm. Harmon. Mr. Cole is a self appointed Evangelist, having cut loose trom all church or gan zations. Mr. aud Mrs. JavnesFauver of Graf ton, Lorain Co., have been visiting for some time here among menus ana relatives. We understand tnat he is considering the propriety of estab lishing a hardware store here in the spring. If the two other stores here would give up the hard-.vare trade, it would be an excellent point here for such an institution. Our public schools are moving off very sucoesstullv under the manago ment of Prof. S. G. McCord. The Pr. mary department under Miss Katie 1 Morton is in most excellent condition. With but little experience, as a teacher, she bids fair to te or e of our most succjst-fiil workers in that department. Messis Giffy Bros, proprietors of our Brick and Tile Factory, are making arrangements to greatly enlarge their conveniences lor manutacture, so that, if possible, they may fill the enormous demand thatstiil exists for Tile. They are gentlemen of large experience hon est and straight-forward in their deals, and deserve the most abundant pat ronage. Mr. and Mrs. J.

A Strong Plea for Their Preservation ty Collector Alexander. The following is an abstract from an interview with Captain W. G. Alex ander, canal collector at Toledo, pub lished in the Commercial this morninc and will prove of interest in view of the present discussion of the canal question: "inis is only a scheme on the part oi ine railroads, ana they are the only ones who will benefit by the abandon ment of the canalB and it would be a big thing for them. In as poor con dition as tne canals are at present, thev are the only level that keeps the rail roads from charging exorbitant freight rates in the territory occupied by the canals. As it is they always double their rates in winter after the canals are closed and then cut down again as soon as navigation opens. "The Ohio canals are not in very good shape, but it is because the state has refused to keep them up. The Miami and Erie canal, tetween Toledo and Defiance, is in fair condition and a large amount of traffic passes through it each season. From Defiance to Piqua, it is very apparent, no boats of size can pass through because of sand bars and fillings, yet, with an expendi ture of $100,000, the canal could be dredged so as to give four feet of water clear through from Toledo to Cincin nati, and if this were done vou would soon see the value of the canals, for ine Dusiness would De immense. "As it is, canal men do not feel like putting their money into new boats. for they can not tell at what moment an abandonment of the canals will be made by a "farmer" legislature. If tne canai was cleaned out and there was some assurance that it would not be abolished, hundreds of new boats would be built atouce and Toledo would get a large part of the benefit. Coal could be shipped here from Cin cinnati cheaper than by rail, grain would be shipped from the central nart of the state and these boats would re turn southward with lumber and pulp wood for the big paper mills and for further shipment. Besides this, there would be large shipments of provisions and merchandise between wav ports. ail at a less rate than the railroads would charge if the canals were not there. "Look at the Erie canal in New York state; the great water wav is kent in repair with nine feet of water and no tolls are charged. It is the pride of the state and the business done by it is something enormous. . "The whole trouble in Ohio as I seft it. Is with the members of th ern. lature who go to Columbus frdm all parts of the slate, and many of thm do not know what a canal is. But they have their pockets slutted full or rail road parses, aud because these railroad (Inure to have the canal abandoned, the arranger legislator think he must do Hometning to make a snowing for his free tickets." OUT IN THE COLD. THE ADVANCE IN COAL C03TS THE CONSUMERS $50,000,000. Vllliona Are Suffering wltb Cold and Hun ger lseeana of "Protective" Tariff and Monopoly Lclslation The Interests of tlio People Betrayed fcy Politicians. We are having an unusually cold win ter. In all of the northern and some of the southern states there is great suffer ing. If all of the millions of human be ings now poorly clad and insufficiently fed and housed were entirely responsible, by indolence or improvidence, for their sad plight, it would be useless to waste time on the matter. It is, however, a fact that 89 per cent. f these unfortu nates are men or persons who either do the hardest kind of work for ten or twelve hours a day or who are earnestly search' ing for work. It is also a fact palpable to all thinking men that with our multi plied machines and inventions for saving labor any man capable .and willing to work in a sparsely populated and fertile country teeming with raw materials of all kinds hke our own country ought to be able, with even less than ten hours, work a day, to sustain himself and fam ily in comparative comfort. If, then, neither nature nor the inventive genius of man is at fault, the trouble must be due to governmental mismanagement. In short, the interests of the people are and have been betrayed by the politicians who make the laws. Until -today com paratively few men own and .control the sources of production and the machinery of distribution, so that large numbers of their fellow beings or subjects.are liter ally left out in the cold. Special privileges have been given to corporations and favored individuals. The supply of anthracite coal is practi cally in the hands of a single corpora tion. This corporation has advanced the price of coal over one dollar per ton, in creasing its annual earnings about $o0, 000,000. Of course the millions of peo ple in the east who are so unfortunatoas to want fire and who depend for fuel on the great storehouse of coal in eastern Pennsylvania, put there, as it appears, for the special benefit of the Reading combine, cannot consume as much coal at $0.23 as they used to use at $5 per ton; consequently a part of the mines are locked up until supply will equal demand at the new figures. The situa tion is real aggravating both to those shivering with cold and to the miners out of employment and suffering for food and clothing. The aggravation is not lessened by the fact that up in Nova Scotia is another storehouse of coal, with in easy reach of the New England and middle Atlantic states, to which access is denied by the duty of seventy-five cents per ton, put on by a style of con gressman now going out of fashion for the purpose of compelling the Yankees i o purchase of the Reading combine or freeze. The same situation is repeated with our copper mines, iron ore mines, silver, lead ore mines and boras mines. In each case monopolies control nature's store house of supplies, and our congress has sanctioned tho'inonopolies by putting duties on the foreign competing products to compel the "free" American people to pay the exorbitant prices for the supplies beneath their own soil. ,,The manufac turers of sugajufltarch, steel rails, axes, knives, barbed wire, rubber goods, glass, paper, hats and hundreds of other arti cles are controlled by trusts favored by tariff legislation to take from the poor to give to the rich. It is gratifying to know that a senti ment is rising that promises to sweep away some of those combines in the near future. This sentiment has become so conspicuous since election that it is com mented upon by the protection journals and papers. But many kinds of products are not controlled by trusts. In such cases con gress has done what it could to assist the larger producers at the expense of the smaller ones. The masses of the people who are comparatively poor are laborers, mechanics, clerks and small farmers. Those who own the factories, mines and means of transportation are few and comparatively rich. : It is not in the power of congress to legislate in favor of the poor as against the rich, but it id in its power by giving grants of land and by passing tariff laws to restrict outside competitors to greatly aid the manufacturers and mine owners, and incidentally, by increasing ground rents, the landlords. The rich have of course "appreciated" these favors by large contributions to keep their friends in office. . For thirty years this implied compact has been in force. Each year the terms become more grinding on the poor until now a suit of woolen clothes or a pair of woolen blankets costs in our monopoly markets about twice what they sell for in free markets. Hence it is that the poor, who cannot afford woolens, for the sake of appearance compromise by wearing shoddy or imitation woolen clothing in the daytime, but for the most part make no pretensions to cover them selves or their families with woolen blankets at night. They are but poorly protected from the cold and have to eat more food for this reason to keep life in their bodies. But food also costs more because of the duties on sugar, rice, fish, vegetables, fruits and nuts, and on the glass, tin plate or stoneware necessary to preserve or transport food articles. Duties on lumber and other building materials increase the cost of houses and add to the already high rents which the poor are compelled to pay. Tariff taxes compel the poor to wear poor clothes that cost more than good clothes cost in Europe; to eat cheap and insufficient food; to pay higher rent pr live in poorer quarters; to go cold for the lack of. cheap fuel: to do less work for Wm . :- The only Pure Cream of Tartar Powder.

And yet the now con demned tariff legislation is only one of the devices of the rich and their accom plicesthe politicians for fleecing the poor out of t conaiaeiablo part of their earnings, and perhaps, when an r.nti monopoly congress has smashed tariff monopolies aud begins to legislato so that tho hard working poor will get an opportunity to work and get what they earn, it will bo fonud that there aro other monopolies even worso than tariff monopolies. It is a octisfaction to know that tho ship of state will soon have a new set of officers, who will steer her in an opposite diiection from that of the past thirty years. Byrou H. Holt. THE CURSE OF TARIFF TAXES. They Increase tlio ?nt of Farming- and Burden InMead "1 Protect. What folly to talk about tariffs rais ing wages or being tho cause of high wages! Does a passenger train make a milo a minute because it is propelled by the Pullman sleeper attached to tho rear? Does a wagon run easier when one wheel is locked? Tariff taxes always lock the wheels of progress. They are so much deid weight that has to be tugged around by the in dustrial machinery. They increase the cost of raw materials and at the same time the cost of manufactured articles, thus lessening tho ability of manufac turers to compete, reducing the quantity of manufactured products, lessening tho demand for labor and decreasing wages. They increase the cost of farm imple ments and the cost of clothing and other manufactured articles, and thus' burden the industries that they cannot protect, leaving smaller rewards for fanners and farm laborers. They can protect only a few manufacturers by giving them in creased profits, and mine and timber owners by giving them increased rents. All comes out of the wage earner and the unprotected industries in decreased wages, lessened production, increased rents and cost of firing and greater cost of raw materials. And yet we are told, and it is believed .by many intelligent people, that our prosperity is due to tariff taxes. Look out over the civilized world, and see if there is in practice any solid fouii aation for thi3 absurd belief. None whatever. Everywhere tho compara tively high wage products undersell tho low wage products. The two countries where wages are highest are Australia and the United States. The chief prod ucts of both are agricultural, and yet these countries supply low wago Europe with farm products, grains, provisions, etc. Of the Old World countries England pays by far the highest wages. Her chief products are manufactures, which sho sells not only in all the European coun tries, but even in India and China, where wages are still lower. Not only is her high priced labor more than a match for the low priced labor of the Old World, but her prosperity at home and promi nenco upon tho sea date from the time she began with free trade and higher wages. According to the McKinley-Carnegie theory, China and Russia and Spain should with their labor run England out of the markets of tho world. On the contrary, we see that these countries are all "protected" by tariffs from England. Wages are not high because of taxes of any kind, but in spite of them, and be cause labor is more efficient and pro duces more. The first step to success is self asser tion and independence. It applies to nations as well as to individuals. As virtue brings it own reward, so do folly and siu bring their own evils. Ti'ill Take the Responsibility. The statement that the Democratic party is afraid to undertake the revision of the tariff Mr. Voorhees pronounces as an insult to the intelligence of the men who compose the party. "There never were truer words spoken," he said, "than those used in the Democratic platform to characterize the Republican party policy. We have denounced it in our platform as a robbery and a fraud, and preached it from every stump in tho country. The senate is just as enthusi astic in the matter of the coming re vision of the tariff as the house can pos sibly be, and is perhaps more set in its purpose. We will assume all responsi bility, and are ready to begin tomorrow if need be. "All the intelligence and wisdom of the country is not in the Republican party, and when that party dies all wisdom will not die, nor will all wisdom have departed when its majority has departed from the senate. The Democratic party can be depended on to do two things remove the unjust burdens of taxation from the necessaries of life and provide the necessary revenues for the govern ment. The Republicans are prone to talk of our mistakes, but theirs have been crimes. If we were tyros in the science of government we would not do worse than they, but we will give the people relief from the burdens with which they have been oppressed since the Republicans came into power. The vote of the people at the recent election shows wherein they put their confidence, and that confidence will not be mis placed." New Age. ltautlaui Below Zero." Tiffin, O., Jan. 20.
