Yon want to know how the public
has been faring in the past three years,
and we here give you the figures:
The records of the treasury ehow Oc
tober 1, 1892, that the public debt
amounted to $960,518,104, with 8131,895,-
918 net cash in the treasury. By Oc
tober 1,1893, the debt had decreased to
$961,386,775, with net cath on hand re
duced to $106,858,833
On October 1,1894, the debt increased
to $1,017,566,336, and the net cash was
reduced to $119,919,719. On October 1,
1895, the debt further increased to sl,-
126,494,999, and netcasu In the treasury
increased to $185,405,363.
DurlDgthe year ended October 1,1893,
the net increase in the public debt,there
fore, was $19,888,896,and ended October
1, 1894, with a net Increase of $43,443,-
Daring the last three years,there fore,
the net lncrea6e In the debt has been
$106,467,390, and during the same time
the increase In the Interest bearing debt
has been $162,329,650.
Since J une 30,1892, the net expendi
tures of the government exceded the
receipts by $120,151,467.
You want to remember these figures
—for they tell you the practical result
that has come from a change In the
economic policy of the government,and
Its sequent crashes In the business
It is the result that was predicted by
the friends of protection—and there
will be no change In the operation of
the changed policies. There will be no
betterment—for the markets of the
country will be more and more domi
nated by the volumes of foreign made
goods, and American labor and Ameri
can business must conform to it—ruin
and wreck tho’ It may be.
The laborer has less to buy with—the
dealer less trade—and the foreign man
ufacturer never was so pushed and
never so happy as now.
After 1896 there will be a change in
all this sort of thing. An American
policy, destructive and protective, will
be the order of the American people,
and It will be obeyed with a care to de
tail that will reverse the machinery in
a way that will count for the prosperity
of the whole people—save those who
live on the rich profits of the import

—The Burlington Hawkeye in view

and throughout the nation. It would
have been regarded as an unwarrant

in the affairs of civil government, an
attempt of Romanists to control poll

eight sons, all republicans. Now will

Judge Husted of the Dubuque dis
trict court 1b said to have defined the
term “head of a family” as follows:
The fact that a man has a family doeß
not make him the head of the family.
He must support his family else he Is
not its head. If the man is a loafer and
a worthless coot, and the wife is the
provider, she Is the one at the head of
the family.
—Gen. Miles Is not a West Pointer.
When the civil war broke out he was a
clerk In a Boston dry goods store,meas
uring off calico on a salary that barely
sufficed to pay his living expenses. He
entered the volunteer service as a sec
ond lieutenant in the 22d Massachusetts
Regiment, and rose rapidly to a colon
elcy. Good fighting In Virginia, attest
ed by three wounds, advanced him to
higher grades; but his greatest distinc
tion was gained In Indian wars on the
western frontier.
—There is a great republican victory
in the air. Let the republicans remem
ber that in lowa victories at the polls
are only won by getting the ballots In
the boxes, and then fairly counted. So

day and date, and see that you get out
and vote—rain, snow, corn-husking and
all else to the contrary notwithstanding.
—Don’t forget that any dollar of
manufactured product brought to this
country, that can be made in this coun
try, cuts off that much of demand for
American labor. Tbe republicans be
lieve that It Is better to make all In this
country that can be here made—keep
American and home labor employed.
The democrats,—well, no one can tell
what they believe. All we know is that
they make an awful boggle of all that
they undertake, and unemployed labor
knows that all over the country.
—The Knoxville Expresa is the first
democratic country paper that has at
tempted a defense of the bond deal of
the administration. It says: “After
all the talk about the “Immense profit”
of the bond syndicate and the accusa
tion that the bond sale was a profitable
thing for the president and his advisors,
It now turns oat that the members of
the syndicate made very little out of
the deal after ajl. It was dissolved last
week and a showing made. The bank
era who bought the bonds and sustain
ed the government s gold reserve at a
very trying time received exactly 6 %
per cent on the money Invested, a very
low price tor tbe service rendered In
keeping up tbe reserve. It becomes
more and more apparent, as time goes
on, that President Cleveland and Secre
tary Carlisle really drove a very shrewd
bargain with tbe bankers,and one which
resulted profitably for the conntry,’
And all this in the face of facts that
can not be defended by anyone—a se
cret sale of bonds away below market
price, with an ultimate profit to the
syndicate of the millions of dollars, all
of which should have been In the treas

Can’t Climb the Stairs.
The Des Moines Capital man has
this sensible thing that tits all towns to
a dot: “A bright school girl mourns
the fact that she is no longer able to at
tend the high school. She Is not able
to climb the stairs without t xhaustion
This is the case in too many It stances.
A glance at the yonng miss alluded to
solves the difficulty. Her waist is wasp
like—she has crushed out her vitality
by an Overweening fit sire to have a
fashionable figure. One naturally
wonders what her parents are thinking
about to permit such a strange deform
ing process to proceed .lander their ob
servation. A wise physician has said
that nature has made such scanty pro
visions for the vital organs in the hu
man body that there are “no apart
ments to let;’’ each organ has barely
room to do its own work well and assist
in the general welfare of the system.
How can we expect soundness of mini
and body therefore when we crush out
of place and impede the action of the
most Important life centers. An abnor
mal waist measurement dees not con
tribute to the female fgare. It is un
fortunate when the deformity is either
in excess or below the the normal Qgnre.
Some one who deelres the good of hu
manity should Eet a standard and make
the goddess of fashion acknowledge It
so that the suicidal work now in prog
ress amoDg our school girls may be
arrested. A waist that you can epan
with your two hands is not a pretty
waist. It gives most persons the same
ftellng of repulsion that a sore hand or
a boll on the nose produces. We are
just ever and ever so sorry. ’

Buchanan Wlnthrop Elected Treasurer of
House of Deputies.
Minneapolis, Minn., Oct 11. —The
chairman at the Opening session of the
Episcopal convention Thursday morn

various committees. Following this

The committee on expenditures rec
ommended the election of Buchanan
Winthrop as treasurer of the house.
The committee also offered several res
olutions fixing the salaries of officer*
of the house for the ensuing three
years. The report was accepted and
adopted. •
Buchanan Winthrop was elected
treasurer. The sum of 8400 was voted
to the presiding bishop. The salary of
the house of bishops was fixed at SSOO
for the first year S2OO for each subse
quent year. The salary of the secre
tary of the house of deputies was fixed
at $1,200 for the first and $. r >oo for each
subsequent year.
A communication was received from
the colored church convention asking
for the establishment of a school for
the education of colored people. Re
ferred. The house proceeded to the
order of the day beinir the considera
tion of the new constitution.
The .session was unrelieved by any
interesting developments save that
the element which seeks to refer the
revision of the constitution to a new
commission received an inglorious
backset at the very start by Dr. Mor
gan Dix refusing to recognize it as in
order so long as the revision is before
the house.
The house refused to strike out sec
tion 3 of the revision committee’s re
port, thus fixing the title of he who
may be chosen as head of the church
by reason of seniority as “primate.”
The house refused to concur in that
clause of the revision which reduces
the representation in the house of
deputies from four clergymen and four
deputies to three of each.
The house adopted resolutions of
sympathy with the Armenians, and
requesting the authorities of the
Church of England to take such action
as will fitly commend the cause of the
Armenian church to the whole Eng
lish speaking world.
The transaction of business was dis
pensed with during 1 the afternoon, and
the visitors were driven about the
city by a committee of its citi
zens. To make up for the lost time
the houses of bishops and deputies met
jointly at 8:30 o’clock p. m. as the gen
eral missionary board of the church
for the purpose of considering the con
dition of missions in Alaska.

phoid Fever and Diphtheria.
Louisville, Ky.,oct. 11.—The health
authorities of Louisville and the state
are alarmed at the prevalence of ty
phoid fever and diphtheria, which are
raging as was never known before

in Louisville for September was
doubled on account of the prevalence
of these diseases, and there has been

107 negro colonists in northern Mexico
and that it will cost 825,000 to
return them to their homes. Out of a to
tal of 800 negro colonists, the where
abouts of 250 are unknown. The col
onists at Tahuilo were treated in the
same manner as the Mexican peons,
but from some unexplained cause dis
ease developed among them. The
large percentage of deaths caused
large numbers to flee, and many died
at frontier points of smallpox.

Durrant Undergoes a Searching
Cross- Examination.
Cool aod yuick-Wittetl He Keeps Hla
Temper Until a Strong: Point with
Regard to Kls Sickness iu the
Church Is Made.
Ban Francisco, Oct 11.— Whether
W. H. Theodore Uurrant is one of the
most remarkable of murderers or not
he is a remarkable witness. All day
before an audience that packed the
courtroom he stood a fire of questions
from District Attorney Barnes,
which it seemed at times must
break him down, with imper
turbable coolness. His quickness
of wit and adroitness were shown
a dozen times. He went over the
ground of his direct testimony and en
tered into the details of his movements
In the church on the day of the murder
without varying any point or abating
any in plausibility. Many questions
were put to him to test his memory,
and the defendant answered them all
without any hesitation. He was asked
as to his association with Blanche La
mont, and told of his having escorted
her home from the church, to the park
and other places. When asked if he
had not stated after Miss Lamont’s
disappearance that he believed she
had been made away with he answered
in the affirmative and said he had
formed that opinion from a statement
made by one of the detectives in his
Given a Clew by a Stranger.
The district attorney went back to
the statement of Janitor Sadeinan, of
the Emanuel church, that he had
seen Durrant at the ferry on the after
noon of the Minnie Williams murder
and that Durrant had then said he was
waiting to see if Miss Lamont would
not pass. He told Sademan he had
heard she was going to cross the bay
that afternoon.
Durrant admitted making such a
statement to Sademan, and said that
he had been told by a man whom he
had never met before nor since that
such was Miss Lamont’s intention.
This man had met him on the street,
and asked him it his name was
not Durrant, and if he was not inter
ested in the disappearance of Blanche
Lamont. On returning an affirmative
answer he was advised by the stranger
t j watch the ferry as she would cross
the bay that afternoon. The stranger
then left him and he proceeded to the
ferry, lie said he was so overjoyed at
receiving a clew that he did not think
of investigating this stranger. Dur
rani said his counsel had been trying
to locate him.
Didn't Go to Meet Minnie William*.
Durrant vehemeutly denied the im
putation of the district attorney
that he had gone to the ferry
to meet Minnie Williams, and was evi
dently annoyed at the reference to the
girl thought to be the second of his
Attorney Barnes then reverted to
Durrant’s alleged work at the sun
burners, and got him to go over the
details of what happened then and
was particular to inquire as to the
symptoms which followed his inhala
tion of the gas while he was at the
burners. After his description of his
sickness, Durrant was questioned
as to his studies, and said
that he attended lectures and read
text books on materia medica and
would have graduated as a physician
next December. In opposing an objec
tion Barnes made the statement
that Durrant knew enough about
medicine to be able to diagnose
his case. and that he had pre
scribed something not intended for
partial asphyxiation. Had he been
overcome by gas, as he had stated, and
had taken enough of the bromo seltzer,
the district attorney declared, that he
would have been a dead man before he
could have left the church.
The Witness Excited.
This telling point had its effect on
Durrant, who showed the only excite
ment manifested by him on the
stand. He rose to his feet and
turning to the court, said the
district attorney had misstated
his testimony in saying he had diag
nosed his case as a partial asphyxia
tion. Barnes said it made no differ
ence; his nausea, according to his
own statement, was from gas in
halation. In this connection the
prosecution will produce experts to
show that gas inhaled flushes instead
of paling the face, and that bromo
seltzer is for the nerves and not for
such a complaint as Durrant alleged
he suffered from. The cross-examina
tion will go on again to-dav.
Call for a National Conference at Detroit,
December 12.
Chicago, Oct. 11.—A call for a na
tional conference of colored men to
meet at Detroit, Mich., on December 12
was issued here Thursday afternoon.
The call states that after con
siderable correspondence with prom
inent colored people throughout
the United States, the con
clusion has been reached by a com
mittee representing the colored race
in Chicago, that the time has come
when leading colored men should
meet and deliberate upon principles and
measures important to the welfare,
progress and improvement of the race.
Among the items to be considered are
the disfranchisement of negroes, the
denial of freedom of locomotion to
colored citizens and the existence of
mob and lynch law. The call con
cludes as follows:
“That great agency, the republican party,
whloh brought about his freedom and enacted
laws for his protection as a citizen and a man,
will soon be In national convention assembled.
Let us come together and formulate some
proposition invoking the aid of this conven
tion In the solution of the troubles which are
now attracting the attention of our friends In
Europe as well as in America.’’

St. Louis, Oct 11.—A special to the
Chronicle from Little Rock, Ark., says
that in an interview Thursday morn
ing, Gov. Clark said: “Neither
Corbett nor Fitzsimmons have yet
said, so far as I have heard,
that the mill was to take place
in this or any other state, and as
they will evidently be the chief attrac
tion in the coming exhibition, 1 prefer
to wait until something more tangible
than talk develops before 1 say
just what I will do should the
fight attempt to be settled in Arkansas.
In other words, I won’t cross the
bridge until I get to it. The impression
has gone out that Hot Springs has been
settled on as being the best place
for an exhibition of the kind
proposed, and by common rumor the
officers down there, including the may
or and city attorney, are anxious -to
secure the mill, but I can hardly
believe all I hear. One thing,
however, I shall not need fur
ther authority than that at pres
ent on the statute books, to pre
vent people from coming into the state
for purposes that are prohibited by
every state in the union.
Attorney General Kinsworthy said in
the afternoon that he hoped the man
agement of the mill had no serious in
tention of coming to Arkansas for the
purpose of pulling it off, but
that if they should he would prosecute
them to the fullest extent of the law.
The impression prevails throughout
this community that the fight will
take place at Hot Springs, independent
of the popular feeling against the
prize ring.
A Congregational Organization Owes
Hank* US 179,000—Salaries Are Hue.
Nkw Yokk, Oct. 11. —The Congrega
tional Home Missionary society is in
unusual straits financially. It is in
debt to the banks $173,000; its treasury
is empty, and inasmuch as only SIOO,-
000 of the indebtedness is secured by
collateral the banks have refused
further unsecured loans.
The salaries of the home mr r'JSJiTes
were due October 1. Failure to re
ceive them means, in many cases, bor
rowing of local banks at high rates
of interest. The society is abso
lutely dependent for the time being
upon the gifts of churches and indi
viduals. The present situation is due
not only to the hard times but to the
chronic omission of Congregational
churches to take their missionary col
lections in the summer and early fall.
The severity of the crisis is great but
His Arrest Characterized as Unlawful and
Washington, Oct. 11.—Judge Brad
ley, of the district supreme court,
Thursday ordered the discharge from
custody of Capt George A. Armes, who
was arrested on the order of Lieut.
Gen. Schofield, just prior to the lat
ter’s retirement from command of the
army, for having written him an in
sulting letter. Judge Bradley scored
the action of the late general of the
army, characterizing it as {unlawful,
tyrannical and capricious.
In discharging Capt. Armes, whose
arrest and confinement Gen. Schofield
had ordered by virtue of his position
as acting secretary of war, Judge
Bradley said:
"The arrest and taking away of Armes
into custody, carrying him away from his
home to barracks ami holding him in close
arrest without any antecedent charge of
crime preferred in any way against him, was
and is unjust, unlawful, arbitrary, tyrannical
and capricious on the part of Gen Schofield in
whatever capacity he acted, whether acting as
lieutenant general or acting secretary of war.
The petitioner is discharged ”
The judge then went into the matter
at considerable length, and said:
“No charge was preferred against Armes at
the time of his arrest, no crime has been
charged since, and for the offense alleged no
arrest was necessary. The arrest and con
finement were unlawful and oppressive As
the offense charged would upon substantia
tion result only in reprimand, suspension or
dismissal, the possession of the body of the
accused was not necessary to carry out the
oharges, as would have been the case if im
prisonment or death was to be the sentence. “
Speaking of the president’s power in
army matters, the judge said:
“The president of tho United States is com
mander in chief of the offloers of the army
on the retired list This function of
the chief executive, however, is unaccom
palned by harrowing care or weighty respon
sibility. His title of commander in chief, so
far as it relates to retired officers, is shorn of
all power to impose duties and appears to be
an empty name ’’
The judge advocate general’s office
of the war department has determined
to take an appeal from the decision of
Judge Bradley. This will carry the
matter to the court of appeals of the
District of Columbia.

The Porte Answers the Joint Note
of Foreign Diplomats.
It Declares the Armenians Wore the Ag
gressors in the Date Constantinople
Riots —Will Kndeavor to Discover
and Punish the Guilty.
Constantinople, Oct. 11.—The porte’s
reply to the joint note of the six
powers relative to the recent rioting
here has been made public. The
government enumerates the steps
that were taken to maintain order,
and declares that Mussulmans were
not the aggressors in the rioting. It
further says that the Armenians killed
inoffensive Mohammedans, and that in
certain cases the Mohammedans had
to defend themselves against their
attacks. The reply deuies the reports
that the government forbade the send
ing of supplies to the Armenians who
had sought refuge in the churches,'and
declares that the refugees will soon
leave the churches and return to their
homes, and the city will resume its
normal aspect.
It is announced that the government
is about to open an inquiry for the pur
pose of discovering the guilty persons,
and recommends the diplomats to use
their good offices wdth a view to the
restoration of order, especially as the
intrigues of agitators cause fears that
more serious outbreaks may occur in
the capital.
Not Satisfactory.
Upon receipt of the reply the repre
sentatives of the six powers met at the
residence of M. Cambon, French am
bassador, to consider the attitude of
the porte as exemplified in its
note. It is the general belief
that the note will not satisfy the
diplomats. The meeting also discussed
how best to clear the churches of the
refugees who refused to leave them un
less they were formally assured
that they would not be molested.
It was thought that probably the best
means to effect this object would be to
have the dragomans of the several
embassies assist in clearing the
churches and conduct the refugees to
their homes.
The Sultan Uneasy
Semnos, at the entrance to the Darda
nelles, continues to cause anxiety to
the sultan, and he has made a second
appeal to bir Philip Currie, the British
ambassador, to secure the with
drawal of the British warships. Thus
far his appeal, like the first
one, has been without avail. This
leads to the belief among the foreign
residents that Great Britain intends to
persist in her demands, even though
the other powers snould declare them
selves as satisfied with the concessions
the porte has announced itself as being
willing to make.
Thursday evening the plan of the
ambassadors to have their dragomans
assist in procuring the evacuation of
the churches by the refugees was put
into effect and the churches were va
cated in their presence, the govern
ment having positively undertaken
that the refugees should not be mo
lested. Thus one of the incitements
to further trouble has been removed.
