A detective story that Is good and srtojpg enough to have won a prize of *2.000 In open competition against the efforts of the writ ers of the world must necessarily be an extraordinary story. That is what “The Long Arm.” by Miss Mary E. Wilkins, did. The story is only some 12,000 words long, which makes it probably the most expensive short story ever published. The Morning News has purchased the right to this remarkable story In this section, and will on Aug. 3 begin its publication in the daily edition. The instalments will contain about 2,000 words each, and the story will run through six days. The skeletons in the closet did not worry Holmes a bit. He made them pay rent. It appears that Senator Gorman’s hand has not lost its cunning in politics; and, furthermore, that the cunning little hand still knows how to take hold to throttle op position. Whether Corbett and Fitzsimmons fight In Mexico or on this side of the dividing line, it is pretty sure that they would not consent to the purse being made up of 63-cent Mexican dollars. The dispatches say no Indians have been seen about Jackson Hole for three or four days. The Princeton students who were recently in that section of the country must have given their college yell as they passed through. It is rather early yet to talk about the candidates for the governorship in the next election, nevertheless, the reports age to the effect that Judge Hines is in training to make another race for the place. He has recently made several speeches on the currency question. A Chicago dispatch gives details of the fine points of play made in a game of foot ball a day or two ago by Eugene V. Debs, who is nominally in Jail at Woodstock, 111., for contempt of court. It Beems that Debs' imprisonment is in a Pickwickian sense only, and that he is having a good time and growing fat. The Atlanta Constitution says the “slump of the tax returns” is due to the "operations of the financial policy of the administration.” The report from Way cross, upon the authorliy of Mr. Wilkin son, is that the slump of the Ware county returns "is mostly due to the great loss of cattle in the great freeze of last win ter.” It must follow, therefore, that the Constitution holds that the operations of the administration's financial policy brought on the great freeze of last win ter. The Tax Returns. The decrease in the amount of the tax returns from many of the counties this year in comparison with the amount re turned in previous years, is the subject of a good deal of comment. For the pur pose of making a point in favor of the free coinage of silver the sliverites are as serting that the decrease in the amount of the returns is due to the fact that our mints are not open to the free and un limited coinage of silver. They do not give ahy satisfactory reason for their as sertion. If they had reasons to give they would not hesitate to give them. It would afford them a great deal of satisfaction to be able to show that the state is on the down that it is losing its wealth and population. In order to, make a point in behalf of silver, they advertise that Georgia is moving toward poverty, instead of prosperity. Is it a fact that Georgia is declining In wealth and population? We bclliy as sert that it is not. We believe that the people of Georgia, the farmers especially, are in more comfortable circumstances than they have been for many years. In the towns there may be people who are having a pretty hard struggle to make a living, because some of the avenues of employment that were open to them be fore the hard times that followed the panic of lsS3 are still closed, but few of these people are taxpayers. It is true that the cotton planters received a very low price for their last cotton crop, but they made it cheaply and they are about out of debt. Their fruit crops this year have been excellent and the corn crop Is as good as was ever made in the state. Farming land cannot be purchased for less money per acre now than It could two or three years ago. and it Is doubtful if live stoek. with the exception of horses, can be *, bought any cheaper. Why Is it then that there Is such a falling off in the tax returns in so many of the counties? The main reason Is the- panic of 1493 has made the people feel they are poorer. Last year they placed a lower valuation on their property and they are doing the same thing this year. In our dispatches from Atlanta, published yesterday, it is stated that the- belief prevails that the ac tion of a Fulton county grand Jury, which recommended some time buck that owing to the hard times the people be permitted to place a lower valuation on their prop erty. has had much to do with the falling off in the tax returns. The impression hns gone out from Atlanta .that the people of the cities are placing a lower valuation on their property, and the people of the country are acting in accordance with that impression. If silver had anything to do with the matter the decrease in the amount of the returns would have begun years ago, and it would have been noticeable In all the counties. Asa matter of fact, there was a pretty steady increase in the amount of the tax returns for years before the panic of 1493 and In some of the counties this year there is no decrease. If silver is the cause of the “slump." why is it that there is not a decrease In all the counties? The sliverites will have to find better arguments than this of the tax returns to support the cause of silver, or else it will have very little support. Has there been a falling off in the amount of tax re turns in every other state? The sliverites must show there has before they can hope to have accepted their theory that the de nial of free and unlimited coinage to silver i* making the country poorer. The Truth Cropping Out. We have had a suspicion that the col ored people who have gone to Liberia from the south have not found the op portunities there for improving their ma terial condition as great as they had been led to believe. If the story told by three of the returned immigrants, who are now in Philadelphia trying to find means to get back to their old homes In Arkan sas, is true, the experience of those who left this port for Liberia a few months ago has been one of great hardships and sufferings. According to a dispatch in the Morning News yesterday they were dumped out on the shore on their arrival in Liberia and told to shift for them selvesi What were they to do? It is probable that the government was ready and willing to donate to them twenty live acres of land, or any other num ber of acres, but the land doubtless was a long way inland and covered with a thick growth of timber and underbrush. To clear even an acre of such land and prepare It for cultivation would require the labor of several men for a year or There are practically no means of earn ing money in Liberia, because there is little or no demand for labor. Those who are fortunate enough to find employment are paid wages that are barely sufficient to buy food enough to keep body and soul together. And the climate is about as bad as it can possibly be. The deadly African fe ver makes short work of Us victims, and the percentage of its victims among new comers is large. How many of those who left Savannah a few Aonths ago are still alive is not known. The three of the party who are now in Philadelphia say that many have died, and that nearly all the others are existing in a half starved condition. They have been driven by hunger to eat what ever they can find in the forests that will sustain life. Without food and with out the means of procuring it, and being ill with fever they have had One long regret doubtless that they ever left their comfortable homes In this country. The colored people ought to be made acquainted with the truth about Liberia, so that those who emigrate to that coun try will not be disappointed. Unfortu nately the great majority of those who are preparing to go to Liberia refuse to believe those who tell them what they may expect on their arrival there. They accept the statements of the Immigration ugents, and decline to listen to their real /riends. Only experience with the hard ships of Liberia will convince them of their mistake in selling their belongings in this country and taking the chuneis of bettering their condition In Liberia, of which country they know nothing. THE MORNING NEWS: THURSDAY, AUGUST 1. 189.3. The Stale I*re on Money. The organs of the free silver movement have been somewhat persistent in the claim that the majority of the press of Georg!* favor that movement. It has not been long, indeed, since at least one of those organs asserted that the Georgia weekly press were practically unanimous in favor of free silver. The Macon Tele graph has made a canvass of ail of tha political papers !h the state for the pur pose of ascertaining how they stand on the money question, ai. I the replies it has received not only refute the claims of the silver organs, but show that a great ma jority of the Georgia papers are in favor of sound money and democratic supre macy. The Telegraph sent to all of the papers this query: “Does your paper ad vocate the free, unlimited and Independent coinage of silver at the ratio of 16 to 1?” That is the issue before the people. It re ceived HI replies, of which eighty-nine were In favor of sound money and fifty five in favor of free silver. Among the latter were a number from populist or gans. while there was not one from a populist paper, naturally, among the former. Furthermore, when an editor's reply indicated hostility towards the ad ministration, his paper was classed among those favoring free silver, whether or not the reply was positive on that point. The Telegraph's classification shows the strength of the sound money and the sil ver papers, by congressional districts, to stand thus, the number of sound money papers being given first: First district, seven to three; Second district, eight to five; Third district, ton to eight; Fourtn district, seven to eight; Fifth district, eight to six; Sixth disiriet, ten to three; Seventh district, five to four; Eighth dis trict, four to three; Ninth district, eleven to four; Tenth district, four to nine; Eleventh district, thirteen to two. It will be observed that the free silver papers outnumber the sound money papers only in those districts which arc strongly pop ulistic, the Fourth and Tenth, for In stance, and that the number of free sil ver papers approaches the number of sound money papers only In those sections where the politics of the congressional representatives and of the leading news papers has been strongly impregnated with ideas that are unorthodox from a democratic point of view. Thus the rub is pretty close in the Third, Fourth anl Fifth 'districts, though the sound money papers outnumber the others by two in the three districts. In South Georgia, where the people have had straight democ racy preached to them, the sound money papers outnumber the others by three to one. Of the thirty-eight papers in the First, Second and Eleventh districts which replied to the Telegraph’s query, twenty eight of them are for sound money. Con gressman Turner’s district heads the list with thirteen sound money papers against two cheap money papers. The Joke is on the women, or their husbands, und Dame Fashion and tha silk makers and sellers are the parties on the other side. Some time ago there was an overstock of silk. Prices went down in consequence, and merchants and manufacturers were blue. In their emer gency liame Fashion came to their res cue. She invented and popularized big sleeves—the bigger the better. The effect has been, as might have been foreseen, that the surplus of silk stock has been eaten up by the big sleeves. The demand for silk for Waists with big sleeves ha* been unprecedented. The stocks being now worked down, prices are advancing There has already been a material ad vance in the price of raw silk, which will be reflected in the prices charged at the retail stores within a short while. For a year or such a matter silk goods have been almost as cheap as woolen goods; but they will hardly be so very much longer. It is to be hoped that the successful bid der for the work of constructing the su perstructure of the Savannah postoillce will name Georgia marble as the material to be used. The structure is for the ac commodation of the government’s busi ness in a great and growing city, and must serve its purpose for maybe a hun dred years. It it was to be a temporary affair, almost any material would an swer. But when the building is once up, it is going to stay, ami if it should prove anything but a first class building, hi ma terial, workmanship and everything else, the city would after a while outgrow it. A pinchbeck building in a sterling town would be out of place. The Vigilant's victory over the Defend er oh Tuesday, on the run from Eaton Point to Huntington Harbor, does not count. The Defender was five minutes ahead when she was compelled to quit because of an to her steering gear. Had such an accident occurred in a regular race the Defender would have lost It, of course, but the test of speed was not in a regular race, hence the Vigilant's victory was empty. It is probably well that some of those who favor the free and unlimited coinage of silver are giving attention to the kola nut. If their monetary schemes were to bo adopted, it might be necessary to pro vide the wage-earners with something that would enable them, to get along without meat. It is said that the natives of Africa carry heavy burdens all day on their heads after having eaten one or two of the nuts and nothing else. It is reported that the father of Convict- Suicide Porter Stocks will not push an In lnvestlgatlon as to the cause of the death of his son, because he is satisfied that Porter had been drinking heavily and killed himself in a lit of despondency. Are convicts in the Georgia penitentiary permitted to drink heavily when they please? The presence of the Tillman brothers, George and Bon, as delegates In the South Carolina constitutional convention will probably lead to some pretty lively tilts between them. Ex-Congressman (George) Tillman does not indorse all of his broth - er Ben’s vagaries, and may be counted upon to attack some of them on the floor of the convention.

CURRENT COMMENT. | Good Money, nn<l Plenty of It. From Louisville Courier-Journal (Dem.). It is the plea of the free sllverltes that they want more money. England Is now commenting on the fact that tih© hundreds of rr-Hiionr. which Britishers are wont to invest In the United States are at pres ent kept at home in the bank vaults on account of the agitation for a change in our monetary system. The free sllverltes are clamoring for more money—bad money —and are keep.ng out of thie country mil lions of more money—as good as the best money. Still Deliev© in Santa Clans. , From Talbotton (Ga.) New Era (Dem.). Certain people, we are told, must not be believed because they have changed their opinion. For example, Carlisle is said to have once favored free silver, but now opposes It, and so he Is not honest and must not be believed. We do not wish to cull your attention to the fact that wise men change tiielr opinions, fools never, but we know several persons who once believed In the mythical Santa Claus, who do not do so now, and still people have confidence In them and be lieve them, despite the change of opin ion. Silver in lowa. From Springfield (Mass.) Republican (Ind.) Not one of the strongly democratic coun ties in lowa has chosen free silver dele gates to the state convention which is to be held next week, and there was a contest in all of them. The only victories won by the sliver crowd were in counties w-hleh are hopelessly republican. This is perhaps the most noteworthy sign of all of reac tion in the weak money movement. lowa democracy has heretofore been strongly silvered o’er, and ex-Gov. Boies, the leader of the party, once lately came out afresh for free coinage. The People Are Learning. Milledgeville (Ga.) Union Recorder (Dem.). The people are deeply Interested In the financial question, and are becoming thor oughly posted on every phase of the ques tion. They are learning that the free, unlimited and independent coinage of sil ver at 16 to 1 means silver monometallism. That it will not benefit the workingman, because wages will not be increased, but he will be compelled to pay twice as much for the necessities of life. That the silver dollar now In circulation Is worth 100 cents, kept so by the power and prom ise of the government, and that by the free and unlimited coinage the govern ment will be relieved from all such re sponsibility. and that the dollar will be worth only its commercial value. The people, in the face of these facts, are not going to commit their country to this ruinous policy. Growth of an Idea. Prom the Nashville American (Dem.). First the demand was free coinage of silver, then came the additional demand for the ratio 16 to 1, then was added "un limited" and this year brought to the front "independent. So it is easy to see how the pro -' ss of evolution progressed. From "free comage." with no mention of ratio or other descriptive terms the sil ver demand has gradually taken on ad juncts until now it takes the long and full-mouthed phrase, "the free, unlimited and independent coinage of sliver at 16 to 1" to express the demand of our silver friends. \\ h other they will stop at this cannot be predicted; for as these tuils mnnic words have l,een assimilating oth ers from time to lime there Is no telling when some other new demand will ts j added, exemplified by a dignified word, j However, while ihe words of the demand ; grow in numix-r anti length H eannot l*. <ld that ib in ngtu ol lint cause grows | in like ptopot Uou Some Vigoronn Boston English. The* introduction of each new sport brings into common usance many terms and phrases unknown to the dictionaries, says the Boston Journal. Rhetoricians have often been worried by the wonder fully large vocabulary which a simple game or a single science can control. Electricity, for example, has made reputa ble the use of scores of words which Noah Webster never heard, and other scientific investigations have been simi larly prolific in new terms. Base ball has naturally had its share in the manu facture of terms and almost everybody knows what is meant by "grounder,” "base-runner” and bleachers.” But as an indication of what is yet in store for our unsettled English speech, we quote the following account of a bail game taken from the Quincy (111.) Herald. It tells the story of a match between the nine of Quincy and that of Omaha, a neighboring town: ' The glass armed toy soldiers of this town were fed to the pigs yesterday by the cadaverous grave robbers from Oma ha The flabby, one-lunged Reubens who represent the Gem City in the reckless rush to.' the base ball pennant had their shins toasted by the basilisk eyed cat tle drivers from the west. They stood around and suffered the grizzly yaps of Omaha to run the bases till their necks were long with thirrt. Hickey had more errors than "Coin's FMnanefod School" and led the rheumatic procession to the morgue. The Qulncys were full of straw and scrap iron. They couldn’t hit a brick wagon with a pickax, and Tan bases like pall bearers at a funeral. If three base hits were growing on the back of every* man’s neck they couldn't reach ’em with a feather duster. It looked as if the Amalgamated I'nlon of South Ameri can Hoodos was In session for work in the thirty-th*j !i degree. The geezers stood about anti whistled for help and were so weak they couldn't lift a glass of beer if it had been ail foam. Everything was yellow, rooky and whangbasted like a glass full of doodle-gatqjnon. The game was whiskers*! and frost bitten. The Ohahogs were bad enough, but the Quincy Brown Sox had their fins sewed up until they couldn't hold a crazy quilt unleea it was tied around their necks." In the light of such graphic English, comment is out of place, and We pause in mute admiration as we note the vigor, the trenchant clearness, ar.d the remark able individuality of this description. These are surely great days for the ne ologists. Reed and His Gloves. Tom Reed never wears a silk hat, says the Chicago Tribune, lie bought one six years ago and braved public sentiment beneath it for nearly a fortnight, but he couldn't hear tho-pressure any longer than that. It made him uncomfortable. It didn't lit the bumps, on his head, and altogether he didn't think it harmonized with the contour of his face or of his body. Hats have always been a source of trouble and annoyance to him. When he first came to congress he wore a lit tle saucer-like arrangement, with a nar row brim, tnat made his face look twice its natural size, and gave him generally a schoolboy air. His friends weaned him of that, but they have never been able to induce him to give any particular attention to dress. It Is only lately that Mr. Reed has taken to wearing gloves, except in the coldest weather. The day the print of the tariff bill, with its innumerable com mittee amendments appeared, Reed walked into the House, hung up his hat In the cloak-room, and began to wan der about the floor, conspicuously hold ing the bill before him in his gloved hands. * Baker of New Hampshire caught on to the queer combination, and whispered hurriedly to Lioutelle, “For heaven's sake speak to Reed! He’ll be wandering around here absent-mindedly all day with his gloves on if you don't.” Houtelle sidled up to his big colleague and began to pull his coat sleeve. "Get back into the cloak-room, Tom," he whis pered, "and pull off your gloves, ''you’ll have the whole House laughing at you." Reed turned solemnly upon the Bangor man and held up the bill he was carry ing. "Charles,” he said, "why do you speak with so litte consideration? Can't you see that I can’t trust myself yet to handle this thing without gloves?" A Story of Bishop Poller. There is a story about Bishop IVitter go ing the rounds, says the New York Sun. Last year the bishop went out to Tuxedo to confirm a class of young people in the new church there. A young matron who had been a member of the congregation of Grace church while the bishop was its rector, and had been herself confirmed and married by him, wrote and insisted that he should stop with her during his stay at Tuxedo. He accepted. Asa particular honor she adorhed his room with an elab orate toilet set of solid silver that includ ed more than a dozen pieces. The bishop came, confirmed the candidates, and went away. But the silver toilet set could not be found. It was not on the dressing table nor in the bath room, and the ma trons astonishment was great. Her an noyance was almost as great, and for two days she wondered what could have be come of the sot and whether the bishop had supposed it was a present. On the third day she summoned up courage enough to write him and ask if by mis take his man. or one of the servants, had packed up the silver toilet set with his luggage and it had been overlooked in unpacking, etc. The bishop answered promptly, for the next day she received this telegram. “Am poor, but honest. Look In the table drawer.” The young woman did look, and the toilet set was found there. The following day a letter arrived from the ‘bishop saying that he had put the silver toilet articles away, as he did not need them, and had forgotten to speak about it. He wrote that he traveled with a very simple set of his own. and the silver outlay dazzled him so that ho wanted to get it out of sight. l’nlilic Tuste 1m Continued. Mr. B— built himself a house some years ago, says a writer in Harper’s Mag azine. The architecture was simplicity, as a friend said, “to a riotous degree.” It was correspondingly pure, and the house was correspondingly comfortable. The effect of tho lines, however, upon the untutored mind was not impressive. A friend visiting Mr. B—’s town, inquiring the way to the house, was told by the boy of whom he asked the question to “go long ’bout a—well, a mile, till you come to a bouse ’at looks like a barn, only it ain't a barn, an' that's hisn.” B— enjoyed the description and told his architect, who made a fw remarks about public taste which would have of fended public taste very much to hear. "That's their verdict,” said the archi tect; "but what does it amount to? It simply proves—” etc., etc. Two weeks later three friends of B rode up from town on horseback, entered the grounds, and stopped before the house. One of them dismounted and rang the bell, and B— himself opened the door. "Whoa!” cried all three riders at once. B— almost swooned. The horses had tried unanimously to walk in. They recognized the “simplicity" of the architect ,and the architect himself lia3 had to admit that popular taste sometimes receives indorsement from unexpected quarters. He is now trying to get B— to let him try again. Awarded Highest Honors—World’s Fair, 'DR.' CREAM^ BAKING POWDER MOST PERFECT MADE. A pure Grape Cream cf Tartar Powder.
