How few of ns realise the infinite distance between these two. There is no more wretched condition of thing for the human race than to ; say that, as man between man, con fidence is lost or confidence is lacking. Confidence enters as an element into Dnrl everything. To say that con " ."T JUM UUIUSUUT 111 ll - - - r condition, and man toward man in their very best attitude. Men condone nd forget many offenses, and it is down a long hill to the bottom when confidence is lost. It is op end np s long, slick weary hill back to where confidence can be said to be restored. The trouble with our country to-day is that the people have lost eonfi dence in the party in power, and the party in power has lost confidence in itself, and hence the paralysis that rests upon the country to-day, the condition of things which calls forth the most distressing message ever sent from the white house to the legislative balls. Mr. Cleveland pleads like a pen' Itent and philosophizes like states man in that paper. This thing we call want of confidence seems to get in the air; we Imbibe it as we breathe, snd, like the subtle thing we call malaria, it creeps into every fiber of man and paralyzes his vital forces, rattles his brain and makes him do the wrong tiling at the right time and the rlht thing at the wrong time. It is bad for the creditor and worse for the debtor: it cripples and hurts commerce, stops ttio machinery of manufacturers and throws upon the country idle workmen by the thousands. Confidence lost cither in the ability or willingness of men to do what they have prom- iscu to at), or ought to do, prom ise or no promise. I may have confidence in a man's ability to pay or to do, but it takes both aliuty and tw- ingnea to do, to restore confidence be tween man and man. Many men are willing to do snd willing to pay, but they are not able. Many people are bio but not willing. Thero is no phase of human Ufa that !s not affected In times like these; our national life, Is affected involving our national credit; our commercial life is Involved and the great currents of trade ore chocked and checkmated, Social life is involved; the church life la Involved; the individual life is in volved. These various currents in which the human life flows, each is af fected, and will make man lose faith in man. It hurts the social life and the church life just as it hurts the commer cial life. Whatever restores faith in humanity is a blessing to the social life and benediction to the churches themselves. Human nature at its best Is not alwnys sweet and good and ami able. Whatever produces resentment. crossness and meanness affects charac ter, and the character of the people de termines tho character of uie nation If every man knew that every other man was honest; If every man knew that every other man was true; If every man knew that every other man was pure, such knowledge as this would not only change tho relations of men, but it would change conditions and make life worth living. To go Into the sacred precincts of the homes, as many business men do, care worn, with business trials staring them in the face, never made man a better husband, better father or a better Christian. Wo worry more than we work, as there seems to bo more worry on hnnd than thero Is work to da To worry every duy and to havo to worry every day is discredit to our religion and our hopes. Rats never carried corn into their abodes and dens with more selfishness than the capitalists are tak ing gold from the treasury of tho United States. Tho average citizen looks upon the depletion of gold In the United States treasury for the last few months with much curiosity nnd much contempt. This Is what cuts tho foundation from undsr tho structure; before tho build in? Is finished the superstructure falls. Wheat has touched its lowest point; cotton lower than ever before; the staple products of the west and south havo already reached a point that de mands the attention of all our people. Tho cry Is: less cotton to bo planted, less wheat sowed; but tho ex changes in Chicago, and Wall street, and London, and Liverpool nil settle the price on every pound of cotton and every grain of wheat raised by the sturdy, honest farmer, all the same. Wo want work for the laborer, cus tomers for the merchant, traffic for tho railroads, demand for the products of tho manufacturer, converts for tho preachers. Along these lines when the farmer shall be paid a price for his product that will enable him to meet expectations of the merchant, and the laboring man shall receive wages which will make him good customer to the merchant; when tha interchange of trafilo shall keep the railroads busy and men will be guided to conviction of the right under the voice of the minis try, and so on, and so on, then our con fidence will bo restored as between man and man and prosperity will come to us gain. We sre not doing enough with what we have got. Idle mules In the lot are consuming the reserve forces of the farmer; idle clerks will break down ny mercantile house; empty trains will bankrupt any railroad; emntv seats will sidetrack ny preacher; Idle operators and rusty machinery will ruin any corporation In the world. There is no better evidence of the want of confidence in the country than the plethora of the banks; money never was so plentiful and yet never was it so scarce. Confidence sad collaterals sre the only thiuzsthat sriU get money, snd after all collaterals seem to be as scarce as confidence, and if a fellow has got neither he is in the hole right now, snd most of humanity is in the hole to sil intents and purposes. What are we to do about it? What ean we do about it? We will see what congress will do with Cleveland's mes sage. The thing must start somewhere and some when, and something will bend or break before long. The ten sion is great. If the present congress refuses to set, let Cleveland call the next congress into session as soon as this adjourns. Sa P. J OSES. THEY WERS NOT THE SAME. Tk ChuiM rhl lift' Icon HaS Breocfct Aboat. The following anecdote has both comical and pathetic side. What long time fifty years are in the life of human being! And how far apart, how unlike in tartes, feelings, opinions nd habits, men and women can be come, who In childhood slept under the same roof, attended the same school, and dreamed of nothing but of being friends foreverl A gentleman whose "courtly manneru" were mentioned In all the newspapers when he died, a few years after thia incident, fancied in his old sge that he wished to see his boy hood friends, and, most of all, the fair young girl whose love, loug years be fore, he almost, but not quite, had dared to ask. He forgot cwiutry manners, and called at half-past eleven in the fore noon. Ila was asked to walk "right out Into the kitchen," as there was no fire anywhere else. Uis early admiration stood before him, in a worn calico dress, no collar, and wido and not faultlessly clean apron. Her half-cor.ibed, grizzly hair was tucked under s rusty black lace cap, trimmed with faded purple ribbon.

Tht Singular Method of a Practical Mlndcil Man. Gen. Tlilebault, in recounting the story of his lifo, dwells at some length upon his experience in the swimming school on the bank of tho Seine. Among tho habitues of tho placo was one man who had opinions of his own, and a mind to exercise them. Ho camo to tho school three times week, and Gen. Tlilebault thus describes him: Ho was about forty years old, tall. thin, serious looking, and carried him self like an aristocrat. He always came straight Into the school In his street dress, his hat on his head, his coat but toned up to his chin, gloves on and cans In hand. Without paying attention to anyone he walked along tho platform, drawing nearer nna nearer to the edge, nnd then suddenly, and to all appearance as much to his surprise as to anyone else's. his foot slipped, and Into the river he tumbled. The first time I saw this performance I supposed It was an accident, and was preparing to go to the man's rescue, wnen 1 saw him pick up his hat. nut his cane between his teeth and striko out for the platform. Having reached the platform, ho re tired to a dressing-room, out of which ho presently emerged wearing a bath- luff suit like the rest of us. I!v this time I was half disposed to believe him crazy, but when I ventured to ask on explanation of his strange behavior, he rcpllid: "Sir, we learn to swim in order to be able to save ourselves If we should ever fall Into the river. Now. then, if imch an accident should happen to you, do you Imagine that you would bo dressed in swimming drawers? Ko. sir. von would havo on your clothes, vour boots. your hat; and being taken all by sur prise, you wouia most likely be drowned.

Work of Iho Uome erallc Congrea. The republicans in both houses of wngress sre putting partyism before patriotism as usual in these latter davs. . , When the president sent In his special message last Monday the sound-money republicans seemed disposed to join the sound-money democrats in affording relief to the treasury manner proposed. They seemed disposed to admit the truth of the president statement that the treasury was in its present predicament not because of the Insufficiency of the revenues, but because the laws relating to the cur rency were unwise snd Inadequate to the protection of the gold reserve. Sow all U changed. Although less than a week has elapsed, and although the business public has rallied to tho support of the president with remark able promptness and unanimity, ws are told that "the party leaders In both house snd senate sre firmly con vinced of the foct that the only diffi culty at present lies in s look of rev enue. And it ia more than hinted that these leaders have eome to an understanding not only that they will do whatever may be necessary to defeat the pro posed legislation by this congress, but that in the next congress they will first pass a bill Increasing tbe tariff rates andtefuse to do snythlcg to Improve the currency system unless the presi dent signs that bilL In short, the plan is to force the president to accept s McKlnley tariff or bankrupt the government and al low tho country to lapse to the silver basis. Of course, this diabolical programme has not been openly announced, nor will it be. But that it has been agreed upon is a fair Inference from Senator Alliscn's recent remarks In the senate. After referring to the fact that the treasvry had been running behind for some time he said: "The first duty of ongrefs Is to raise revenues as well as to appropriate for necessary expenses. The tariff bill ha largely increased the free list, and brought in foreign articles with lowered duties. There Is, therefore, ample means of Increasing our rercnue by small Increase of tariff rates. This should be done in stead of drawing from the treasury reserve to pay current expenses. If surplus hod been maintained the gold reserve would not have been trenched on to nieet the treasury notes." Mr. Allison calmly Ignores the fact that the treasury began to run behind before the end of tho Uurrtson admin istration, and Mr. Foster, Harrison's secretary of the treasury, had made every preparation to issue bonds under the resumption. He seeks to place upon tbe democratic party tho blame for the deficit and the run on the treas ury for gold, both of which were due to republican legislation, and began before the close of tho last republican administration. But let that pass. The first thing to be done, Mr. Alli son tell as, is to increase the tariff rates. But he cannot expect this con gres to revise tlie tariff upward, espe cially as It will expire s month from now. ue cannot mean to postpone remedial legislation until tho now con gress meet next December, for it will then bo too lata for such legislation, and there will be no excuse for Increas ing the tariff, because the present law will be pnxluoing revenue far In excess of tho expenditure. It Is as plain as posslblo, therefore, that tho republican programme hinted t by Mr. Allen Is to force an extra ses sion by preventing the passage of any measuro of relief this session. Then the first thiug, as ho expressly states, will bo to revise tho tariff. That, judg ing from the past, will take at least ilx month. In tho meantime nothing whatever will bo dona for the protec tion of the trensury. Frobably noth ing will be done afterward, for .Mr. Al lison volet J the republican opinion that If tho Income exceeded tho outgo the gold reserve would not be trenched upon to meet the treasury notes. And so tho diabolical republican scheme to force McKinlcyism upon the country sjnin or destroy the public credit by sinking us ;o the silver basis 1 completely exposed. But the scheme will not work. The administration will protect tho treasury and the na tional honor by Issuing bondi under the resumption act. Tho president will not call tho now congress together to resume the agitation of the tariff. Tho new congress will not meet till Decem ber, ami by that time thero will be a surplus instead of deficit, and there Will be no excuse for reopening the tariff question. The conspiracy of tho republicans to foi-ce McKinleylsm upon tho country gam or destroy the public credit and disgrace the nation will not be permit ted to succeed. Chicago Herald.
