It would be no loss to tho world If Coxey and his men were In the canal, not on it. Don't fail to «ave your coupons s ) as Co secure all the parts of that great work, "Bights aud Scene« of the World," which we are now offering to our readers. After thirty years of protection, three months of "apprehension" puts the prottcleJ workingman on the brink of starvation. Protection doas not seem to be a safe foundation for prosperity. It takes as long a time for the Senate to determine bow the Wilson bill will be considered, as it will take to consider It What a lot of dear old humbugs those Senators are I Ex Bi-sakbk Rbkd is vindicated for The Democrats, so tbe pro Caarltm. found and beautiful theory Is, have rtoommended him for the Presidential nomination Butely that Is one belter than either Candidate McKiuley or Candidate Harrison has got Why did not the McKinley bill have pome reciprocity clause In It for the pro tcciion of workingmen? It c uld reciprocate between those Inslguifi laut little Booth American states and the United Slates, but our own workingmen have to force their wages from the pro tected shops hy labor unions. Tbit Is the reciprocity of the McKinley law toward the workingmen. Vt HII.B Miss Frances Willard Kuo vies Is running that free lunch count« r at Washington why not start a wet, stomachic boom for Senator Higgins as a candidate for the nomination? Benator Higgins has done a great deal for Miss Frances. It would not be ungrateful to use a few hundred eases of champagne 01 ;anch a benefactor ana discoverer M es Frances could charge tbe expenses to tbe French wine companies and obtain affidavits from Pnblle Servant lisch Mating that the money was proparly expended and the wine all used for legitimate purpose« Sknatok Lindsay, of Kentucky, ssys he is sure the Wilson bill will pass the Benate. No Democratic Senator, he stye, will vote against the bill when it coves to a final consideration. He says also that tbe bill will pass substantially in it* present form; that the tax on sugar will be allowed to remain ; that I he Income tax will be in the bill when it comes from tbe conference and will finally become a law when tbe vote Is taken about June 1, That Is certainly a hopeful If not a cheerful view. It pieces the bill in a better condition than that of the Silver Repeal bill when the ar rangements were being made for the ex pendit ure'of Senatorial eloquence on that bill. PEOPLE seem to be coming to their tenses concerning the nuisance of the "industrial army" fad. It Is vagrancy, pnre aud simple The vagrants should be arrested or required to leave. They mean to beg or steal. Roth are unlawful and no matter which the army proposes to do tbe officers of the various towns should see tbit that their own ballliviclis ar# exempt from either form of dep-eda tion. Tbe Kelly brigade is encamped out s'de of Council Bluffe with no shelter fiom the rain, which is falling steadily. With a touch of Irony they have been ordered to "move on," and four companies La- e been sent out to force them to obey. If th y bad any sense It would seem that there wonld be no necessity for such an order. Mayor SroaRT refused to allow any other than tbe United States flag to be fliatedJrom Independence Hall. That's right. While there is a great d.-al of sentimental nonsense about the flag from those who do not know how or who would sot sacrifice anything if they knew how to defend it when necessary, we have as much right to onr American sentiment in this country as the fot signers have to their sentiments. For the very reason they wish their flag to fly, we wish to unfurl onrs to the bretzes which blow over this land of the free aud the brave. We do not think every old bac mer and coffee-cooler who carries I he flag and draws a pension during his sober intervals, is a patriot, but it there in to be any dispute about flags we aie for tbe variegated and beautiful stars and stripes. It Is decorative and glorious. Those women who are vigorously in sisting that men should be held to as high a standard of morals as women are, will be tbe first to slump when some friend of theirs shall have been seduced by a school girl. Women themselves set the standards. They condemn the woman and condonetbe man. What good would they accomplish by ostracising men as they ostracise an erring women? As Bhakespeare says ot whloping tbe fool» wuo are in love, all the wnippers would be in love. The ostracised world would he the biggest world. Tbe most usefit', lue loveliest, sweetest, best and grtudest women of tbe world are those wb, miud their o <u buaiuesa and do not "res date," Mud bless them, th, y will tot dis :ass the in to so Pollard Breckinridge or any other ■caudal. They do not need to run pnrity societies and act as public spies on tbe conduct of other people—they are purity societies for themselves—they are too pure, too sweet, to suspect other people. With the close of the present theatri season in Boston, the stock company system will be abandoned. Tne company the Grand Opera House In Boston, tbe one of tbe combinaticn bouses to hold out against tbe prevailing star custom, will be abandoned. Tbe boasted culture of Boston is not sufficient to maintain a high-class company of scholarly and skillful actors. They will have to abandon the field to the travel companies and Boston will be in tbe circuit "of the provinces." as tbe theatrical people refer to all cities out of New York. This la not creditable Boston play-gosrs, hut it is a fact that good stock companies cau no longer compete even in Boston, with more modern companies. The old Museum clung to Us traditions until it was in a dilemma, with failure aud rniu one eud of the horns and change to the prevailing custom at the other. The Museum changed its custom, and ibus avoided ruin. The Grand Opera House company was formed to take the plaça of old Museum and now tbe practical failure of this company leaves Now York the only city in this country, with the exception of the Opera House in New Orleans, which can maintain its position under the old system Tint Cleveland administration is pre paring. it Is believed, to back down in Samoan manner and let Great Britain and Germany possess the islands peace.—Philadelphia Press. That prompts the questions what our possessions are there now? And what have we been doing in Samoa? Our pos sessions are nothing, we have not even a treaty as "tbe most favored nation" there; we are assisting in the expense and moral—immoral rather—support of monarchy. _If there is any buck down refusing to assist tbe German aud English monarchies to prop another monarchy, in refusing to give moral aud money support to that monarchy and in retiring from the absurd and compromising position in which we have been placed there, we cannot per form tbe backing operation too quickly. a merchant discovets that his agent stealing, or using bis credit to support house of ill-repute, the merchant will lose no time in backing down. Our ageut was assisting In a steal in Hawaii; our ageut la using our money and influ euce to assist England aud Germany to support a monarchy In Bamoa. Are we afraid to "back down" from these posi tions? Wb cannot say that we expect much It, but there la a new era dawning in reference to pensions. There are very lively objections aud a thoroughly right eous disgust against the fraudulent peu doners; there Is even a greater disgust tor the pension agents and the penaion doctors who assist the ftandnlent pen sioners and sometimes prompt them to commit the frauds that are so prevalent. Heretofore, it has been very difficult to catch tbe doctors. Very little attempt vas made to detect the frauds in *h!ch they were partly criminal. A tare has just been brought in Mluueap oils Indicting three well-known physi cians on charges embracing not oulr fraud, but bribery. The prisoners are among tbe moat prominent physicians tbe neighboriug)towns,of Minuoapo Its and they have been examining surgeons for a long tl u, The Indict ments are for accepting bribes, for making false certificates oi examination in connection with the aoplicatlon for pensions, for making examinations al leged to be false aud fictitious, for pte tenting false claims for examinations,and for accepting tees in excess of the regu lation fee This Is an entering wedge in Minneapolis There are a great many more frauds suspected, aud it Is the intent Ion of the Federal authorities to enter upon a course of discovery and indictment, and pursue it until they have brought tbe guilty persona to justice, or at least stopped further fraudulent practices. Tub millions of dollars that this pa tient people have been paying into the treasuries of tbe protected infant indus tries for years has been expended with bad judgment, if ;three mouths of "sp prehension" cau fill tbe protected states «Ith starving workingmen. Slavery did batter than that by the negroes. From cannibalism it elevated them to be fit to vote tbe RepuoUcaii tickets—to stand between that party and absolute collapse. From savage hunters It instructed them in tbe arts of civilization so that when they were summarily turned out with the cruel and vulgar admonition "to root bog or die," they were able to earn a liv ing. The t«o ty Rems of protection are not comparable in the benefits they confer r system as m«u, competent to vote the Republican ticket«, to select Mr. Harri sou as a candidate at Minneapolis, and capable of making a living for themselves iu cotton, corn, sagsr and rice without th© beneticenre of the UcKinUy promoter of prosperity.

Hon not when they ere turned out, as the negroes were, with nothing but the clothes on tht-lr backs, bnt after they had been coddled for thirty years with that pious charity which Is the special prerogative of the saintly protectors of "the American workingman " How cau these hypocrites, those men who devour the widows and orphans, these robbers, holdup their beads in Intelligent com munitles, when they compare what their system of protection has done for white Anglo-Baxon workingmen with what the slavery system of protection did for the African savage. Which is worse in Its effects, the Kentucky slaver/ of Henry Clay, which protected absolutely but kindly, or the McKiuley slavery, which gives only a promise of protection for years to leave the man to starve on "ap prehension?" Tint determination of the Republicans the House to consider any rule the Democrats brought in as a victory for tx Speaker Reed is amusing. Their anxiety vindicate Mr. Reed for the insoleut and arbitrary manner of counting a quorum without authority from the House and by a rule arranged to suit himself, and to pans the McKiuley bill, has outrun their discretion. They seemed tired of aiding the filibustering of their loader that they were willing to consider Mr. Reed vindicated on the slightest in dication of a change In the rules by which members could be forced to do their duty. But back of all this Is the candidacy of ex-.Speaker Reed. He is ambitious to have the Presidential nomination of his party and he thinks, and bis adherents think, the absolute prerequisite Is a vindication of bis rules by the Democrats Now the slightest inveetigation will show that the rule brought in is not a vindication, but a condemnation of Mr. Keed'a method. The Speaker is not allowed to count at ail— the proposition to allow him to assess fines was rejected, because It was too much like Reed's Czarium. Tellers are to count as tellers have always counted heretofore Bat under this rule, in case a lack of a quorum, they are to count not only those who vote, but those who do not vote and to make a list of those who are absent. But since Candidates Harrison and Mc Kinley have had recent turns at booms is wise and generous to allow Candi date Reed a mild boom like this. Really, Mr Reed is a good fellow, and if wo should have the opportunity to decide we would prefer him to the pious Mr. Harrison, or the crazy Mr. McKiuley. Buy paints, oils, glass, etc., of Janies M.

Tariff Debate Mr, Smith (»1 New Jersey Attach* tbe Income Tax. Hitt Score* the Administration. Washington, April 18.—The house by nn overwhelming vote derided to adopt n quo rum counting rule which for nil practical purposes is the same as that which ex Speaker Reed of Maine inaugurated dur iug the fifty-first congress and which won for him a worldwide reputation. Neither undue excitement nor tumultu ous scenes marked the crushing of the old legislative harriers. Mr. Reed and the Re publicans generally were In a delightful humor over the victory they hail achieved. Those who expected that Mr. Reed would taunt and gibe his political adversaries with their alleged inconsistency were dis appointed. Only IB minutes on a side were allowed for debate, and Mr. Reed, instead of con suming that with an arraignment of ttie Democrats, good naturediy distributed most of It to Democrats who desired to op pose the new rule, and when his time was exhausted he jocularly asked for more time to dole out among his friends on the other side, Messrs. Hryan, Cummings, Wheeler, Kilgore anil Russell being the Democrats who were f bus given nn oppor tunity to protest against the adoption ol the rule. When the vote was taken, 47 Democrats voted against it, but It secured every Re publican vote and was carried by a vote ot «13 to 47. The Ropulists did not vote on the proposition. 'I'lie adoption of this rule, taken in con junction with the decision to enforce the old law of 1841) docking salaries of mem bers absent, save on account of sickness, will, it is thought, put an cud forever ta parliamentary obstruction. The enforcement of that law will keep members at their post of duty, and the rule will prevent them from refusing to participate in legislation when present. Cheers Fur Heed. Upon the announcement of the vote the Republicans cheered. The galleries.joined in the demonstration. While there was more or less applause on the Democratic side, It was not of the character which marked the applause on the Republican side. Mr. Reed was immediately surrounded by his party friends and given an ovation. Home of the Democrats got up a counter demonstration over Mr. Catching«. A large bunch of I.» France roses was car ried up the aisle anil placed on Mr. Reed't desk. Another Republican outburst fol lowed. The flowers wore sent with the compliments of Representative Apsluy ol Massachusetts. In order to force arecordlngof members as present, but not voting, In accordance with the provisions of the new rule, the Republicans declined to vote on the first roll call. At its conclusion Mr. Livingston made the point of order that under the new rule there was no second call of the house, but in lieu therefor the list of names reported by the tellers as present but not voting should be called. The speaker, however, slated that the new rule did not contem plate any interference with roll call, and that the roil rail, under rules of the house, included a second call of those who had failed to respond on the first call. Ho overruled the point of order, und the roll call proceeded. Finding that a quorum had voted on the first call, the Republicans changed their tactics on the second cull und answered to their names. The speaker's table was then cleared. Various executive documents which had accumulated there were laid before the house, and several unimportant confer ence reports were agreed to. Saturday, April 31, after 3 o'clock, was by special or der set aside for the delivery of eulogies tc tlui memory of the late Senator Gibson ol Louisiana. A regular gorge of committee reports, blocked by the filibustering of the past week, was presented under the call of the committees The house then, on motion of Mr. McCreary, went into committee ot the whole to consider tbe consular and dip lomntlc appropriation bill. Mr. Hitt made u strong speech, arraign iug I lie foreign policy of the administra tion, in the course of which he severely scored tho president for uppuiutiug Van Alen as minister to Italy us a reward fot bis »60, OtIO political contribution. Tariff I leimte to Continue. The early hours of the senate session were devoted to n skillful parliamentary struggle between those for und against i lie tariff bill. It resulted in an agreement tc continue the arrangement of best week fot debate until Tuesday of next week, when the bill will be taken up and rcdiscusscd by paragraphs. Very little change bus been effected bj this agreement, us speeches may be madt by senators after the first paragraph is read until they are ready to have it acted upon. The Republicans were anxious tc make certain that nothing by any ambigu nus wording might be construed ns limit lug the length of speeches or the debate ot any paragraph or amendment. Seuatoi Hill would not consent to tbe agreement until it was made plain t liât he would not be deprived of making a motion to consul er the free list first. Senator Harris, in charge of tho bill, believing that n majori ty of the senate would not consent to turn the bill around, did not object to this un derstanding. Two speeches were made on the tariff bill, Senator Mc Laurin of Mississipui favor iug the bill, and especially the income tax ami Senator Smith of New Jersey makin, a vigorous onslaught upon the income tax features. Both are Democrats, and each represented his particular section of Iht country in his remarks and showed Iht different views of the parly iu the sénat, on the pending hill. It was expected that the Chinese treaty would be considered but iu an early executive session the sen ate postponed tho consideration uuti. May 8.

Wheel* Utmiilng Only Two Hundred of Five Thousand Mile*. ST. PAUL, April IS.—The fifth day «inen the American Railway union declared a strike on the Great Northern finds the strike extended over all the lines of the company except a short distance from this city, and of the 4,433 miles of the system not to exceed 200 miles are in operation to day. This has been accomplished thus far without any threatening of bloodshed, xml tlie men say there is no danger of any trouble. They are determined, however, and will illow no trains to be made up or to lie moved. The last part of tho system to be affected by the strike is eastern Minnesota. The men on this branch line are restless and want to strike. Tho company officials think it likely that they will not run today because ot trouble along the line, and in that way this branch is affected. There is an unconfirmed report that the company lias made overtures to the men looking to a conference for settling the trouble, but the officials deny such a re port. A Helena (Mon.) special says; A tele tram from General Manager Case of tho Great Northern asks the men to send rep resentatives to St. Paul, with full author ity to settle matters under tlie laws of tho American Railway union. Tho men re plied that Eugene Debs and George How ard, now iu St. Paul, are authorized to act for the union. At Sr. Cloud the excitement Is growing rapidly, as also is the American union membership. Contrary to expectation, a train from the west was cut by the strik ers, but under protection the brakemeu promptly recouplcd the ears, and tho train went through the yards without further disturbance. This experience, however, made the strikers very bitter, and they decided not to let it occur again, so that when tho Willmar train arrived from St. Paul the strikers made no attempt to touch it at tbe depot, but after it started away a switch was turned, and the train ran on a siding already occupied by some box ears, nar rowly escaping a collision. The strikers then broke the train up and scattered tlie cars around tho yards, the passengers l>e ing returned to the station. Tbe mail and baggage cars were untouched. The dispatchers in the office hero have joined the sinke. It is reported that tlie engineers, firemen and conductors will also go out. Another report says govern ment protection will be placed on tlie night train. There is some little talk of the possibility of bloodshed. A New Iter relief! Yacht.
