Why should application be made to our legislature" to incorporate the NiC' aragua Cuiiul Co. ? a question that involuntarily springs up iu the mind iu connection with the application for a charter for such a company. Congrc should properly grant such a charter, but adjourned without doing so. Ap plication was made to our legislature, doubtless because one of the leading in corporators is a re.-ideut of this state. The company can be put into working order under a state charter, and then it can lie made national by a charter from Congress. A little amusement was created the other day by the intro duction of a resolution iu relation to a visit of the committee on corporations to the site of the proposed canal. The advance in the price of Hour is a surprise and an aggravation. It i difficult to see any good reason for it. It is only claimed that the wheat crop is one-sixth short. A little more use of other food will balance this shortage. The fact is Hour has been cheap and the people have grown into the habit of us ing it freely. A slight failure rave the speculators an occasion to boom it, and one bolder than the rest made a corner in it. As a natural consequence con sumption will decrease with the increase in cost, and the result will bo to settle it back to old prices. It is an unfortu nate thing that it should come into the power of one man to exact tribute from every man iu the country upon the food that has become a necessity.

It is our last chance to speculate iu regard to the success of either of the leading parties in the contest. Men's opinions are de termined somewhat just now by their wishes. Democrats and liepublieans alike look out over the field from their respective standpoints and make prom inent whatever circumstances seem to make in their favor. Let us look at the field from a republican point ol view. The contest will center in three or four states. New York, Iudiana, X. Jersey and possibly Connecticut. From what now appears the IJepnblicans can feel pretty sure of Connecticut. New Jersey is more doubtful, the democrats claim it. The prohibitionists, it is uow thought will win votes enough to throw- it into the hands of the democracy. Both parties claim Indiana. There lms betuf sharp fight iu that state. The democrats would be highly gratified to defeat Harrison in his own state, and the republicans are hoping that state pride will help them some in the mat ter, but at the same time they are re laxing none of their vigilance. Chaun cey M. Depew has been looking the ground over in that state. He says there is more politics to the square inch in that state than in any other part of the country. But he thinks it sure for the republicans. Information has been collected by means of a thorough can vass to the effect that there are 60,000 young men in Iudiana that will vote for president this year for the first time. 40,000 of these are sons of veterans who will vote the republican ticket. in some of the northern counties it is estimated that 'JO per cent of the new voters are republicans. It is esti mated that the gains from this source alone would give the state to the repub licans by about 9,000 majority. This same element must be takeu iuto the reckoning in New York. The Times counts upon 60,000 majority for Cleve land in New York city. But to carry the state the democrats need a larger margin than this to work upon. We learn from parties traveling through the state, democratic in their sympathy that the odds are in favor of the repub licans. They place it upon the ground that the republicans have the most mo ney, and that money will win the day. It is clear that matters look favorable for the success of the Harrison and Mortou ticket. There are a number of things that have workej in its favor through thecunvass. These things, we believe have more than balanced the advantage which the democrats possess through being in possession of the gov ernment. No serious mistakes have been made. A clean ticket was put in the field. The democrats could tell no lies about Harrison or Morton that would stick. On the other hand, the want of success of the present adminis tration has told against it. Its persist cut violation of the principles of civ erviee reform ; its attitude on the tar ill' question, its effort to win the favor of (Sreat Britain, have all tended to alienate voters. The mugwump ele ment of four years ago has principally lisuppeared. The third party appears to be same pulini; infant that it was luring the last canvass a little weak er in the knees, if anvthiii''. The I)r Burchards are on the democratic side The republicans have not been com pelled to carry so many burdens in this race us in the former one, and they ought to win, and we expel they will win. STATE EXPENSES. A correspondent, in another col umn, calls for a halt in voting state aid to so many different things, and incidentally takes ground against the Vermont Daiiyman's Association whose friends are asking for the small sum of $1000 to be expended almost wholly in publishing the reports of their valuable meetings. This a-oc ation ranks among the best in the country, and farmers who have alter j- ed its meetings say it is doing a reat and good work. It has never asked state aid, although Vermont i pre-eminently a dairy state, hi meetings are always addressed bv iren who arc among the most successful and practi cal dairymen in the T.hole country All who hear them arc profited there by, but many, many farmers cannot attend the meetinr's owinir to lack of tune, expense etc. I tns appropria tion is asked '.or, that all can have a copy of the reports of these meetings and thus be benefited, as well as those who en attend them. The bill ought to a-jd will pass. The Dairyman's Association is an applicant for state aid. The officers have claims to present in its behalf which they think entitles it to receive state aid. Iu other words, they profess to believe that every citizen of the state should pay something to help support that institution. Now, we believe that that Association is a good thing. The object it has in view is a proper one. Our dairy interests are a source of the prosperity of the state. We have no fault to find with its officers. So far as we know its premiums have been distributed in a just manner. It may have done much to improve the quality of the butter iu the state. But why should the state aid it ? It asks for one thousand dollars. What does it pro pose to do with the money ? Does it intend to salary its officers? If the of ficers of such societies receive salaries, it is usual to provide for payment with in the society itself. Does it intend to expend it in premiums? Entry fees ought to pay these in all cases. Does it require it to pay for printing ? The newspapers of the state would publish proceedings and essays as matters of general interest and for the public good, without cost to the society. We can hardly see why any money is needed unless the society proposes to enter up on a business career, and in that case why should the state aid it ? We are in hearty sympathy with the purposes of this Association so far as we understand them. But we do uot believe the state should grant it any assistance. Various reasons occur to us which leads us to take this position. In the first place we dislike the tendency it manifests to draw upon the resources of the state. The state cannot take upon itself the patronage of all the in stitutions that spring into being within its territory. We do not believe in of fering any inducement to that feeling of dependence which stute aid engen ders. The state should help nothing and nobody that can take care of itselt or himself. We are not children and the state is uot a father in the sense that it must feed and clothe and furnish spending money. The presumption is that a society organized for the objects for which this society was organized is made up of men w ho are capable of taking care of themselves and of run ning the machinery of the organization they have formed. Do uot full buck upon the state for help. In the second place the granting of aid to this Association would establish aad precedent. Too many hands are allowed to reach iuto the treasury now. Is there any reason why this socie'y any more than the State Agricultural Association or other societies that pro mote agriculture, should be as-istedr If aid is granted to this society this year, iu two years from now other as sociations will be reaching out lor aid and pleading the example of this legis lature. The door once open w hen and where can it be closed? In the third place we do not believe that the condition of the state's finances will justify the granting of the aid ask- for. The state is creating institu tions every few years that become per petual burdens of expense. It is to be presumed that if aid is granted to this Association now that in two years from now it will come forward and ask for a like or even greater amount. Why should this be a beneficiary? We are surprised that the Watchman which is looking so closely after economy in the expenditures of the state should make an exception in favor of this Associa tion. If it is doing the good that its friends claim it ought to work on an independent basis. If the merits of the organization, none of which we deny, entitle it to public benefits, then, why should not the state step in and assist other worthy objects on account of their worth? Here, again, there might be dancer of exhausting the resources of the state. We do not believe the state should grant any aid to any object that is not necessary to strengthen the government and secure the well-being of the gov erned. Appropriations for business and not tor sentiment. Money is need ed to put our highways iu repair, to give us better schools, to help the weak nd unfortunate, and protect against the vicious, as matters of state policy, but beyond this we do not believe it is right to impose taxes upon the people. Some "may say that the sum asked for is small, to refuse to give it is niggard ly, that there would be no perceptible increase iu the tax levied ; but it is the principle we oppose. It is the letting- in of the thin edge of a wedge that may be driven so far as to require an im mense outlay, or bring us under a great burden of debt. There is a constant tendency among our legislators to yield to the pressure that is brought to bear to help a great variety of causes. The line should be drawn somewhere. We know of no better place than to draw it between that which is necessary and all matters that do not need state -supervision. Farmer. VI-ILAIOXT XKWS.

The symptoms of Biliousness are un happily but too well known. They differ in different individuals to some extent. A Bilious man is seldom a breakfast eat er. Too frequently, alas, lie has an ex cellent appetite for liquids but none for solids of a morning. His tongue will hardly bear inspection at any time; if it is not w hite and furred, it is rough, at all events. The digestive systci" is wholly out of order and Diarrhea or 'Constipation niav be a symptom or the two may alternate. There are often Hemorrhoid or even loss of blood. There may be giddiness and often headache and acidity or flatulence aud tenderness in the pit of the stomach A Woman's Relief Corps is to be organized iu Fair Haven.
