Slow My Paper.
After you get angry and make
tho editor feel humiliated, jttit poke
your linger in water and pull it out
and look for tho hole. Then you
know how sadly you have been
missed. The man who thinks a
paper cannot survive without his
support, ought to go off and stay
awhile. When he comes back ho
will find that half of his friends
didn't know ho was gone. Tho
other half didn't caro a cent, and
tho world at largo hadn't kept any
account of his movements what
ever. You will find things you can
not indorse in every paper. Even
tho Biblo is rather plain and hits
somo hard licks. If you woro to
get mad and burn your Bible, the
hundreds of presses would .still go
on printing thorn; and if you woro
to stop your paper and call tho ed
itor all sorts of ugly names, tho pa
per would still be published. And
what is more, you'll sneak around
and borrow ti copy of it cvory
week from your neighbor. It
would be much bolter to keep your
vest pulled down and your sub
scription paid a year in advance.

That retained special pleader of
tho protected monopolists, Robert
B. Porter, propounded a lot of con
undrums in a paper just read be
fore the Institute of Social Science,
tho answers to which, as made or
suggested by their author, claimed
all tho prosperity and pretty much
all tho blessings of this country as
the results of a high tariff. Tho
following aro samples of Mr. Por
ter's insinuating method of defend
ing the policy that aims to tax a
nation into prosperity:
Why aro the wages of tho laborers higher
here than In nuy other country? Why do a
Kieater percciiltiKQ of wnilcmcn own their
own hoinev.' Whv do their children eo to
school well clothed and well led'.' Why Is
lahor respected mid tho worriliunnnu blip
ported Inovciy iPEltlmtito pinlciiMir to nutter
his condition? liy do a greater percentn!?e
of workmen becomo masters here than lu any
oincrioiiuiry in iniworm.-
As Mr. Porter is so fond of the
interrogatory method, perhaps he
will reply to a few queries that are
not his own. Why have the wages
of laborers of all classes always
been higher here than in any other
country, alike under low tariffs?
Why are wages relatively highe
here in tho non-protected indus
tries, compared with the Old
World? Why aro wages in free
trado England higher than in pro
tectionist Germany? Why is it
that the workers hero who are
pressed down tho nearest to th?
"pauper wages of Europe" are those
in the highly protected iron and
coal mining industries? Why is it
Hint the greatest distress and the
most serious labor troubles of tho
past dozen years have been among
the operatives in the iron, woolen
and cotton mills? AVhy is it, if a
high tariff is tho panacea for all
economic troubles, that ten years
out of tho last thirteen have been
years of businer-s depression and
industrial disturbance ?
Turning from facts to principles,
why is it that tho defenders of these
war taxes in timo of peace insist
that tho amount of protection, as
represented by tho average duty,
needs to bo 50 per cent, higher now
than it was in 1S01, when tho "in
fant industries" woro twenty-five
years younger? To shift the in
quiry to political grounds, why did
tho Republican Protectionist Tariff
Commission, of which Mr. Porter
was Secretary, rccommond a re
duction of 20 por cent, on tho av
erage duty in 1802, and now brand
as "Free-tradors" all who call for a
compliance with Hie rocomondu
tion? And what did tho Republi
cans moan by pledging themselves
In 1881 to "correct tho Irregularities
of tho tariff and prevent tho sur
plus," and then arraying them
selves solidly against ovon tho con
sideration of tho subject?
An honest nuwor to these ques
tions would expose tho fallacy in
Mr. Porter's spoiul pleading and
lay bare tho Republican hypocrisy
in dealing with this question. X.

A SNAKE STOltY.

A correspondent from near Glb
Isonvlllo under date of Nov. 27,
gives tho following adventure as
occuring In that vicinity.
"As one of onr neighbor girls was
on hor way to 11. Drosbacks storo
her attention was attracted to a
small son of Mr. Isaac Poling who
was playing with a largo rattle
snake. The roptilo was so numed
with cold that tho boy handled and
carried it as lie might have done a
fence stake. It was carried to tho
houso and the snake's fangs, which
were near half an inch long, woro
extracted. It was then wrapped
in cloth and placed near the lire.
Under the influence of tho heat it
soon became lively. Mr. Poling
was the first one who attracted tho
attention of the snake, at whom it
leaped, striking him between tho
knee and ankle, Mr. P. did some
lively leaping, about that timo on
his own account. His leg where
struck is bruised and black and
looks as if it hud been struck with
a hammer. The snake in somo
manner has lost all but two of bis
rattles, and is five feet seven inch
es in length. It was captured and
is now on exhibition by Ephraim
Poling who will take pride in
showing it to any who may wish
to see." I. Q.
Murder at Newark, O.
A tragedy occured on tho streets
of Newark, at an early hour Nov
ember, 27, which resulted in tho
death of a policeman by tho namo
of Jerry Roach. Roach had been
called to tho house of William
Gorman, who was drunk and
causing trouble in the family.
Lieutenant Brook accompanied
him. When there they found an
other man in the same condition
as Gorman. Lieutenant) Brook
took this man and Roach gave his
attention to Gorman. After pro
ceeding some distance, Gorman
who was an cx-policcman, said:
"I'll be danied if I go any further,"
and refused to budge. Being push
ed he drew a revolver and fired in
to Roach's breast. He started to
run, when three or four shots woro
exchanged between Brooke and
Gorman. Gorman was secured
and locked up, charged with shoot
ing to kill. The revolver used was
a thirty-eight caliber Simla &
Tho wounded man lay almost
twenty-four hours before death
came and relieved him of tho ex
cruciating pain he had suffered in
that time. The murder has caused
the most wide spread excite
ment ever known in Newark, our
Irish people, to which nationality
both Gorman and Roach belong,
being especially agitated ovor tho
terrible occurance. It is not strange
therefore that threats of lynching
woro freely made. Talk of this
kind was so rife that Sheriff Hall,
we understand, had taken extra
precaution for defending the jail
against any possible mob. It is re
ported among those who knew
Gorman and Roach best that a
grudgo existed between the two,
growing out of Roach having said
to a young lady that Gorman was
acting terribly since he had left
the force. The remark reached
Gorman's oars, and according to
tho report, he saitl lie would bo re
venged on Roach for it. At tho
trial on Saturday, Gorman was
bold in tho sum of $10,000 bail.
This ho could not give.
Tho autopsy showed that tho
ball, a 3S-eulibro, entered tho breast
a little to tho right and below tho
nipple, and passing between tho
fifth and .-ixtlt ribs, coursed down
ward through the lobo of tho liver,
anil struck and lodged la tho spinal
regions, causing a hemorrhage
which produced death. Ho was a.
handsome, pleasant and agreeable
man, always a good officer and had
many friends in all walks of life.
Ho owned two lots In tho city and
was thrifty, sober and enorgetle.
