TIIUKSDAY, JAN. 14, 1897.
Those politicians who take so
much delight in the difficulties they
see ahead of the President-elect in
the selection of his cahiuct arc entitled
to be classed as patriots nit.
"American prestige in the Orient
demands prompt action," says a dispatch.
American prestige m the
accident will demand action of some
kind if a policy like that of the
present Administration is to be pursued.
Tub personal wrangle which took
place in the House of Representatives
Monday and Tuesday between Representatives
Johnson and Maguirc,
of California, in which language unfit
to appear iu print wa3 used, was a
disgraco to the country, and shows
that blackguards occasionally find
themselves in high places.
Nixe British subjects were
on the coast of Guinea. It is
safo to soy a British war vessel will
promptly appear and demand
for the injury. Whatever else
may be said of tho English government
it cannot bo denied that sho
protects her subjects throughout tho
-world. Una her subjects suffered as
have ours at the hands of Spain, her
marine would have thundered at the
gates of Havana long since. j
There nrc various reasons why
Great Britain may be glad nt this
time to effect a treaty by which her
differences with the United States
shall be settled by arbitration. There
are now several matters that might
become causo of serious friction.
One of these is the question of the
Alaskan boundary and should this
como in for settlement by arbitration
the United States will have to be on
the alert or "wily John Bull" will
set up a job by which he will own
those gold miacj.
The good work being done by the
legislatures of the various states !
electing Republican senators promises
well for the future complexion of
the Upper .House of the National
Legislature. The election of Fairbanks
in Indiana to 3uccccd Senator
D. V. Voorhees reduces the Democratic
membership by one nud increases
the Republican membership
by the same. Jlliuois will shortly
oilow tho example of Indiana in selecting
a successor to Johu M. Palmer,
and Kentucky likewise.
The American vice consul generni
Siam, has recently been
brutally assaulted by Spauish soldiers
and the government of Siam ignores
the protest of the United States minister
resident. It remains to be seen
whether Secretary 01iuy will be as
prompt and energetic to demand of
Spain ami Siam the amende honorable
as he has been to throw obstacles in
tho way of the struggling Cuban patriots.
The dispatch giving the news
of the assauU says "No American
gunboat has been here for live years.

a full blood Arab and n Mohamme
dan in religion. Ho was elected
from one of tho outlying districts
through an ovcrshight of the political
magnates. He stood for election
with tho title of "Prophet of God."
He is highly educated, skillful in de
bate and a doctor of medicine. He
never refuses a consultntion, never
accents n fee and elves largely to
to charily. He advocates free mar
riagc and polygamy and practices nil
tho Mussulman rites, including bath
ing naked in the river. Should his
ideas prevail the whole population of
Paris, without distinction of sex
may bathe together in that form.
Theue nrc invested in manufactories
of various kinds in this country
no less than $6,000,000,000 and the
product of the factories, according to
tho last official census,rcachesthc im
mense aggregate of $9,000,000,000.
Tho average value of all the agricul
tural products of the United States,
exclusive of live stock, i3 but $,-
000,000,000, less than half that of
the factories, "i ct it is nu every day
thing to hear the advocates of a low
tariff claiming Uiat the ogricultural
interests arc above every other in importance,
and that the prosperity of
tho country depends on the prosperi
ty of the farmer. That is right only
it is just the other way. Vt hen the
multitude of manufacturing in this
tries are going and tho labor of the
country is fully employed, then it is
that the farmers' prosperity oomes.
SkNATOK Sherman declares he can
not accept a position in President
McKinley's cabinet because of his
advanced age. We may well accept
his assertion that he docs not wish
such a place, as true. There could
be little chauce of adding laurels to
those tho distinguished senator has
already won as the head of the treas
ury, and thcro is no position in the
gift of the president which makes
larger demands upon the physical
endurance of the incumbent than
does a cabinet position, and of all
perhaps no other is so burdensome
as that of secretary of state, the position
for which the senator is said to
be slated. If any additional honor
or fame could bo won by Senator
Shcrmon by entering the cabinet, it
could only be as the head of the
state department. It was here that
James G. Blaine shortened his days
very materially by the labors of of
fice. Should the requirements of
Mr. Sherman in that capacity be as
great as of Mr. Blaine, bj' reason of
international complications, he would
not live out half the term. His senatorial
duties sit lightly on his
shoulders, and there is no doubt ho
The Missouri legislature met on
Monday and already thcro have been
introduced into the legislature
some forty or fifty bills af
fecting corporations, principally railroads,
life insurance companies and
trust companies. No less than fifteen
bills were introduced ou Tuesday
providing for a reduction of passenger
fares to two cents per mile.
The attention thus far given the railroads
is practically confined to the
passenger rates, but one bill
tug with ircigUt rates. A hill in reference
to life insurance companies
makes nil policies nonforfeitable after
two payments without n return of
tho premiums paid. Evidently the
Missouri populists do not intend to
past tho opportunity they have to put
in practice their ideas with reference
to corporations. No doubt some of
the tcgiilations proposed nrc in the
interests of the people ami if not
made too radical may prove of advantage.
But the chances arc these
fanatics will overstep the bounds of
prudence and do more hnrm than
A POPULIST OPINION.
L. C. liatcmau was the Populist
candidate for governor of Maine at
the recent election and is the recog
nized 'cader of the Populist party in
the Xscw England states. An opinion
expressed by Mr. Rfltcraau will
carry great weight with tho party
throughout the Union. And when it
is found to be in unison with the expressions
of other leading Populists,
recently matle, it may fairly be accepted
as the ground on which that
party may bo expected to stand in
