The apportionment has been fixed at one delegate for each 50 votes cast for W. J. Bryan last fall, -which will give Henry county 88 dele gates.

That three-fourths or in ore of the members of the House are Cuban sympathizers counts for nothing. President McKinley recommend ed and congress granted an appro priation of fifty thousand dollars to aid the suffering Americans in Cuba. We have no objection to the money thus spent, but if this government intends making donations of money to help our distressed and .suffering citizens, it might be well to first care for those who are on our own soil, and suffering from the mistaken poli cy of our own government, before aiding the victims of other govern ments, i . . If the Spanish government dealt justly with the Cuban people there would be no hardship or suffering in their midst, and if justice were done our people in governmental acts there would be no distress and hunger in the land. The Spanish government should be compelled to deal justly with Cubans, and our government should do justice in a legislative way to her own sub jects, and if this were done in both cases there would benoneed of chari table contributions or donations.

INSULT TO THE PRESIDENT, HIS PICTURE TORN FROM THE WALLS. And Tramped Upon by Men Who Were Thrown Out of Employ . ment. ' Wilmerding, Pa., May 29. -Six hundred workmen joined in tearing down and trampling upon the pic ture of the president of the United States here yesterday. . Four hundred employes of the Westinghouse Air Brake Co. had re ceived notice of discharge. "Lack of work" was the reason assigned. In the "fitting room" of the inanu factory were pictures of President MoKinley. One likeness was on banner designated "Prosperity The workmen, furious at their dis charge, rushed to this room. Follow ing them were 200 others. The lead ers tore down a large print of the President and'' tossed the pieces to the crowd. ' . The men dismissed were' all expert machinists. They had taken part in a parade at Canton; O., in the cam paign, and had bought uniforms for it. Returning to their homes the men collected their regalia and made bonfires of it. The suspension fol lowed a 35 per cent, reduction in wages. The town is excited over the insult to the president. Condensed Testimony. Chas. B. Hood, Broker and Manu facturer's Agent, Columbus, Ohio, certifies that Dr. King's New Discov ery has no equal as a Cough remedy. J. D. Brown, prop. St. James Hotel, Ft. Wayne, Ind., testifies that he was cured of a Cough of two years standing, caused by LaGrippe, by Dr. King's New Discovery. B. F. Merrill, Baldwinsville, Mass., says that be has used and recommended it and never knew it to fail and would rather have it than any doctor, because it always cures.

Representative Cochran, of Mis- sourl, proposes to boldly take by the horns the bull that Impedes the adopt ing of a Federal tax on income. He has Introduced a resolution for sub mitting to the Legislature of the State the following amendment to the Constitution: Aa income tax shall not be eon strued as a direct tax within the meaning of Section 2 and 8ection 9 of Article 1 of the Constitution, but the Congress shall have power to lay and collect a tax on incomes derived from any sou roe whatever, without regard to apportionment or enumeration. , The amendment of the Federal Constitution is an exceedingly diffi cult undertaking. Mr. Cochran's proposition must receive a two-thirds vote in both Houses of Congress and afterward be ratified by three-fourths of the States before it can become a part of the constitution. An income tax is one of the fairest taxes that can be imposed. The main objection to the tax lies in the diffi culty of ascertaining the amount of an income. ' But this difficulty is not insuperable; and the tax is collected in some countries with a fair degree of equity. There is very little doubt that suoh an amendment, if it could be pushed through Congress, would receive the assent of the requisite number of states. . By an act of the last legislature County Clerks, Auditors and Record ers are required to make out soldiers' pension papers free.of charge. As far as Henry County is concerned, this enactment was altogether unneces sary, as the officers in this county never did charge soldiers for making out their papers. A Santo Clara county (Cal.) fruit company is drying potatoes this sea son. May 20th it had. 80,000 pounds dried, which represents five times that weight of green potatoes. The drying process removes four-fifths of the weight and leaves all the nutri tive part in compact form. One great merit of the product is that it can be kept on shipboard for an indefinite time.

Following is the resolution adopted by the Winter Wheat Millers at their annual session in at: Louie last week, in which they take exceptions to the policy of President McKinley and the Republican congress. It would seem the millers have been badly buncoed. The resolution was presented by Chairman Cotton of Ohio, and was adopted without debate. It reads as follows: "Whereas, The Republican party in its platform of principles and by its representations previous to the last presidential campaign held forth a promise of a policy favoring the idea of reciprocity upon a Dasis Droau enough to provide for commercial treaties with other nations by which American trade might be extended abroad, and by this means enlisting the support of nearly the entire flour milling industry of the United States; and, "Whereas, The action of congress thus far taken upon this subject has been 01 a negative cnaracter and ab solutely fails to recognize the press ing need of new and wider markets; therefore, be it.
