The clos 1 -session of the Fifty-ninth congress ' may not end this question, in which ' C4i» the new congress will hake to meat the issue. The well worn ship subsidy bill still hangs fire, and the Immigration bill went over after pass ing both houses and sustaining some radical amend meats which completely Arusti’ste the purpose of the original. At the close of the late session if was announced by the house committee •u rivers and harbors that the next congress will be asked to appropriate (75,000,000 for the improvement of na tional harbors and waterways. , The announcement directs attention ,to the, fact that the national government has net been as liberal and progressive An this matter as the committee thinks it should have been. Efforts, to secure more liberal appropriations from this congress have failed, and members: from sections vitally mtorested Jn riv- f ere and harbors haVS been* trfged tp press the issue until the govern itamt ' shall provide for improvements said, to he much needed.

A Wandering Revolution. ' .more than,* hundred years the French revolution has been meander ; ing all over creation and has failed to i get acclimated anywhere. We have ; heard of it all up and down toe South American continent as well as among the Mongols and the Slavs. As Hick Headeye might say: , In vita of all temptation* To baton* to other nation* It remain* French to the core. and the beat thing for It is to go bsek [ to. the Latin quarter and toe botiie ' vk ds if it would escape the fate called ; “pjetorlng oat.” And it may be to at the I French revolution will ’go back and i o£rrr out the radical programme which Napoleon checked and his more or less conservative or reactionary successors | : have kept In abeyance. There is much that is noble in France, but yet the hind is honeycombed with radicalism, with no little bad blood seething be neath a calm political surface. _a_ Justice Brewer Is credited with the observation that the good breeding o£ Secretary Taft has been demonstrated by the fact that be gave up bis seat lu a car to three ladies. Now, the late BUI Nys once offered to be one of three to ; make a scat for a fat woman who had just straggled Into an omnibus.

Considerable prognas has already been araffa fa the Thaw ease, hut it is safe to say that the prosecution will not be unduly hurried. The principals have money enough to grease the wheels Of New York justice for some The inventor of “ligand air* has pass ed the way of all thing*, and the earns can new be said of the fortunes which some enthusiasts thought they saw to this Into resting wperiawH of the lab 'i pff VK* _ okhf Gum. ffWvpst of. living Ip new 47 per cent higher than on July 1, 1*67. without including rent, though it Is safe to say that rent keeps pstee with the tnareased cost of building materials. As every eae f»r» these increased prices, it Is important te knew what has eactaed ■och enormous advance. It should be first noted that the present trust fostering tart* law went into effect July 24, 1887, .and that almost imme diately the pries of all protected arti cles began to advance in this country, although there w%» no similar rapid advance Of prices in other countries. As this tariff law protected the AB&r Jcan producers from competition, it was very natural that they should In crease the price they charged for their products to the point ivbefe, foreign goods could be Imported.pod pay the freight and costa and also the tariff duties, averaging oveij JO pe^eent The large profits possible under the protective tariff Induced the formation of trusts and combines to control the home market, and this -^polj ad vanced prices to the bis, No figure* dir argument are ueceaeary to prove the advance In prices. Every one who buys food or clothing or jjays rent knows of the large increase from their daffy experience. It Is mast ex asperating also to know that the trusts and combines, which produoe shout alt the heeessitios and luxuries of life, are selling their surplus stocks, after the American people have bought all they ean afford, at much tower price* to for eigners than they charge our own peo ple. As the tariff is a political Issue, the Republican leaders and writers de nied until lately this setting abroad cheaper than here and denounced It as Democratic fabrication, but the. evi dence produced ef the factaj has now compelled them to admit It andAir sheer desperation beast of It as one evtdeuee «if prosperity. Ye* It the. trusts would offer tfiia surplus to the American peo ple it the same price as they aril to foreigner* our people would gladly buy the surplus a*-the reduced twice, but that Would naturally tend to decrease the demand for the high priced goods aad, lead te a reduction of the price of the whole trust productions. There Is another cause tor the con stant advance In prices that la working this world ever, which is the extraor dinary. Increase Is the production of gold. As gold Is the measure of val ue!, when it becomes more plentiful It decreases Is value as measured by la bor, and ttiUa the price# of all desses of eusnmor itiea as measured by gold *i» sdvaajrlng to higher levels. But prices in tb a. United States are so much hjjjgjer. Aha® la other couutrl**. espe cially England, which is on a tariff for revenue basis, that there muat bo some great fundamental cause at work to produce so much higher prices here thun elsewhere. As our high tariff tayos prevent the Importation of for eign goods, which would compete with the trusts and combines except to a limited extent of high class goods, we are at the tnewey of monopolists band ed together to plunder us. Tq obtain relief from high prices the tariff thnsf be revised. ' TITLES AND DEGREES. Tw« Aipeficenii. m WkMt J, ■ W*r« W*irU*ilr Coaterre*.
