C?afreu Appealed to Hot Torn * Deaf Ear to Them. Hon. Roswell G. Horr writing to the New York Ti-ibvne says : Any person who thinks that the present difficulty, in the business of this country, comes entirely, or even mostly, from the workings of the Sherman law will, in my opinion, live to learn bis mistake. The Sherman law has no doubt caused some of the trouble. The bulk of the trouble, however, comes from the fact that the business men of the country have no confidence in the business sense of the party now in power. Had the Republican party been successful in the e'ection of last tall no such troubles would have come upon the people. The laws now in force are precisely the same laws wh'ch were in force for the two yea-s preceding that election. They have not been changed a single iota. When these same laws were in force under Republican rule, our banks were doing a safe business, our manufacturing industries were running ou full time, labor was well employed, and the country was generally prosperous. That state of affairs existed simply be cause our business men bad con fidence in the party then hold in power. The moment that party was defeated the trouble began. What caused such a change ? "Lack of confidence'' say our Democratic friends. Lack of confidence in what ? Lack of confidence in our present mone tary system they reply. How can that be possible ? There has been no changb in that system for nearly three years. The lack of confidence is not the system itself, but in the par ty which is managing thatsystem. Some one asks when Cleveland was elected nearly five years ago, why did not the same trouble occur ? Manifestly, because the Senate was then Republican ; and our business men very well knew that no radical changes in our tariff laws could be made over the heads of that Republican Senate. The Democrats in the House did pass the "Mills bill," as bad a bill as it well could be. But the Sen ate put it to sleep forever. It is useless to attompt to dodge the cause of our present business stagnation. You may tell working people that their trouble is brought about under Republican laws. Their answer will be both swift and true. It will be this: "True, under laws passed by Republicans, but so long as these same laws were ad ministered by the Republican t.arty no harm came to us. Our employment was constant and our wages good. We must there fore be suffering from the fear of bad administration ; for fear that the very laws will be repeal ed under which business was good and our employment was secure." If the working people are suff ering on account of bad tariff laws why did not those laws pro djce the same results under Re publican rule ? More than that: i t these laws are so bad why was not Congress called together, and why wore not these laws re pealed ? A late session has been called but not for any such pur pose. The president simply promised in his message that at some future time the tariff shall be revised. His statement has only aggravated the trouble. If fear of repeal works such injury, what will follow the repeal itself? One thing is most certain. No party that falls to heed the voice of men who are olit of work and that manages so as to cut down the price of bionost toil in this country will long be kept in power. The days of such a party are already numbered. In the stomach of a pike recently caught by Uriah Chap man, at English, Ind., on Friday, a leather pocket book, it is said, was found. The purse "con tained a small pencil and a letter addressed to a resident of Alton, Ind., written by his sister of ? St. Louis. 1 A man in Evansville, Ind.,who 1 is suing for a divorce is the father of twenty-seven daughters. What 8h.l) We Drink I A physician ia an article on this subject, written for the Ohio Farmer, says : "Prohibition reaches well wa ter in nearly all the cities that obtain water from the Ohio river. Should not the cities be prohibit ed from distributing bad water for the unsuspecting thirsty to drink ? About half of the rain falls find their way into the riv ers. The water purifies the air. cleanses roofs, drains sewers, cesspools, barn yards, hog-pens and vaults. It does so by carry ing vast quantities of filth into streams of running water. The refuse of paper mills, chemical works, oil refineries, tanneries and pest houses contributes to the destruction of lish and the 'njury of public health. Partial purification of running water is accomplished by oxida tion, some improvement results from settling of impurities to the bottom, and plants and animals from microscopic size up, doubt less destroy some impurities in the water they inhabit. Oxida tion of impurities is enhanced by their dilution; by the distance they travel without fresh con tamination, by the rapidity of the current, by the frequently of waterfalls or by the roughness of the river bed. As an illustration of many cities obtaining Ohio or other river water for public and dimes t.c use we quote one reported by the State Board of Health. The city of Bellaire has its pumping station four miles below another large city with its 50,000 inhabi tants and its sewers emptying into the river. Besides that the sewerage of Bellaire is emptied into the river just above the pumping station. A Bellaire man may not drink from his own well without rend ering himself liable for violating a city ordinance. And yet statis tics seem to indicate that well water is often worso than river water. Pure rain water falling upon a cesspool may carry its contagion one hundred feet into a well. Well water is often near ly stagnant while river water is augmented by springs located in the river bed. The purifying power of the soil is less efficient than is commonly believed. It is very easy for soil to become saturated with filth of a danger ous character to have in well water. So a domestic filter may at first purify the water, but af ter its pores are clogged with impurities, these may appear in the filtered water. One Kliid of Economy. The young man wanted to mar ry the girl, but he was a reckless chap, spending his salary up close, and the girl's father didn't like to take such a risk. "About how much do you save each year ?" he asked the youth, who had approached on the sub ject. "I should say about four a year/' he laughed, for he was the kind of a young man who thinks it's a wife's duty to teach a young man how to save. ?Um-um-er." calculated the old man. "Four dollars a year four dollars a year. Well, you can hive the girl," he went on briskly and in a business tones, "but you've got to wait for her until you have saved $100,000. That, s the amount I determin ed that her husband shall have. Of coarse it will take you 25,1 000 years and a good deal may happen in that time, but your kind of economy, my boy, is bound to get there by and by. Good morning. For all our life has its ten dencies. It would be intolerable to us if we could not trace ten dencies in our life. If everything stood still, or if things only moved round in a circle, it would ;>e a dreary and dreadful thing to live. But we rejoice in life because it seems to be carrying us somewhere, because its dark ness seems to bo rolling, on towards light, and oven its pain to be moving onward to a hidden joy. We bear with incomplete ness, because of the completion which is prophesiea and hoped f?r-?Ph Mips Brooks. Five ministers of Macon, Mo., are being tried upon the charge of libel for publishing a circular denouncing a school in which dancing is taught. Virginia Dl?gr*etd. At Roanoke, Virginia, was enacted on Thursday one of the most atrocious crimes of the century. A negro in the custody of the law, is caken from the of ficers by an infuriated mob, is hanged to a tree, his body riddled with bullets, dragged a consid erable distance, then saturated with oil, and reduced to ashes undbr a burning pile of lumber and brushwood ! Such savagery is of the type of brutality of the darkest ages. Taking place at the close of the nineteenth century of an advanc ed Christian civilization, and in the State of Virginia?a State noted for its 1 >ng line of heroes, and boasting of its ancestry and history- it deserves the execra tion of every citizen who has any sense of manhood or any appre ciation of the observance of law. ?Ex. The Mayor of Roanake in his efforts to put the mob to flight called the militia to nis assistance and as a result eight citizens were hurried into eternity by deadly bullets and many innocent people wounded and crippled for life.
