The Landslide- !-•, The administration looks aghast at ils two and a half years of rottenness and misrule. Commencing with the year 1835, it began the work of dicta ting to the democracy what their plat forms should bo touching financial policies. Through it-s bread nnd but ter brigade in every state, it dictated its platform, and in rnoft of them its candidates. It was utterly unscrupu lous of the means used so that its pol icy of serving the money lords of ^'Europe was endorsed by an approval $jof the administration and its financial policy. Its press proclaimed the %vunanimity of these endorsements with evident pride and satisfaction, not withstanding the means used to obtain them. Every such approval of its? policy was an approval of the infa mous contract Carlisle made with the Belmont-Morgan syndicate of pirates -which included the Rothschilds of Lon don, and which contract the PLAIN DEALEK publishes in full to-day. The .v administration democrats of Iowa can for the first time regale themselves '•from its perusal. The consolation the true democracy of the country draws from the result of the recent elections, is that not one state where democracy had a taint of endorsement of the financial policy of the administration which included its corrupt contract with London Jews but went down to ignominous defeat last Tuesday. Thanks be to the true Jcffersonian democracy of the nation 'they are not ready to substitute Ham iltonian federalism for the principles and traditions of the past pure and patriotic statesmen. Cleveland as ponderous as he is (about the waist) has been weighed in the balance and found wanting in the elements that the democrats of the nation will ap prove and endorse. In this rebuke is the hope and salvation of the future of democratic government in the United States and the western hemisphere. Even the true and tried democracy of Kentucky repudiate the base pre tender, and his pliant tool in the treas ury. It is well and gratifying to all who put country and good government above party. Is Liberty Dead? The "Prospector," a paper publish ed at Kaslo, British Columbia, pub lishes the following, under the title "The American Eagle Is Dead": "Independence Is dead. England Rules The United States With a firmer grasp Than she did A century And a quarter Ago. Monometallism ~-©8es4be__—- Business. You Yankees Dare not liemonetize Until England Says so. Brittania rules The U. S. And the rest Of the world. Where now Is American Freedom? The Yankees Are afraid To say Their souls Are their Own Without England's Consent. Squirm, Ye Yankees. Squirm and bear it. John Bull Has got you Where He wants You— On a Gold Basis Monometallism Does the business." What Does it Mean? The order has gone forth from Wall Btreet for a short presidential cam paign next year, and the entire pros tituted press of the country is pro claiming the order. The object is to cut off discussion of the questions of the day. The shylocks know for a. certainty that if the people get a full understanding of their schemes they will be crushed out with an over whelming majority. As stated by Senator Chandler the other day, fully nine out of every ten of the "popula tion will be opposed to the schemes of the bankers the moment they become informed on the subject. He might have said ninety-nine out of eveiy hundred, for not more than one out of a hundred of the people is interested in the robber purpose of the Wall street gang, Cleveland is evidently interested ia it, and deeply and so is Carlisle, and doubtless some others of the Washington promoters of the fi nancial syndicate. They realize that there must be, if they would succeed, as little agitation of the subject as possible. Discussion will expose its enormity and defeat their thieving plans, so the order has ^one forth for a short campaign. The bull-dozing effort of their campaign, .Mr. Horr, at Chicago was such a com plete failure that they have concluded to change their tactics and play si lence. Their plans will be to make free use of party lash to whip in enough voters to elect another tool like Cleveland, und then they will be on the top again. Agitation of finan cial questions will not serve the pur poses of our Rothschilds statesmen and there must be a short and silent cam paign. "Quietly vote for the old party again" will be the cry. Will the people obey?—Civic Review. IH '^§IN Sl 1 HOW CARLISLE SOLD OUT.' Full Text of His Contract With the Bankers. We print below the exact contract for the last sale of bonds. It is an extremely interesting document, and should be carefully read by everybody. It shows the relation existing betweor. the treasury department and London financiers. The goldbug press have carefully avoided its publication. It is well known that some parties clean ed up, out of this coutruct, a profit of just about ten million dollars in gold, on that 8th day, or ni_ lit, of February. The market price of bonds at the time shows this: The amount of 4 per cent, bonds is $62,815,435,00. Had congress put its foot in the mess, invited to by the terms of contract the syndicate would have been con tent with $05,116,275,00 in 8 per cent bonds in p&y for their three- and-a half million ounces of gold. Long' time bonds are most valuable and these bonds are to rnn thirty years. The publication of this documei will relieve the public uiind of much doubt, while it must arouse the indig nation of tvery true-hearted American It is as follows: This agreement, entered into this 8th day of February, 1895, between the Secretary of the Treasury of the United States, of the first part, and Messrs.

W«ny llulldlngs Burned by Fierce Flauiei —LOMCH About 8700,000. New York, Nov. 6.—The big fire at Broadway and Uleecker street of Tues day night and Wednesday morning was still burning at ten o'clock. Three banks were at one time on fire, the Manhattan, the Empire state and the Old Uleecker Street bank. The eight story stone building owned by the Man hattan bank is very nearly a complete wreck. It cost half a million dollars to build five years ago. There were about 20 different firms in the place, nearly all of whom will suffer a total loss of their stock and office furnish ings. The building was supposed to be fire proof, but Fire Chief Bonner said he would not again trust his men in so called fire-proof buildings. Chiefs Ueilly and Lnlly were injured in the lire and about "0 firemen were more or less hurt. All were reported as do' ing well Wednesday morning. The Empire state bank is a total wreck. The whole building was burned to the ground. The total loss is in the neighborhood of $750,000. In dividual losses cannot be given. The fire was the fiercest in the city for years. It blazed up through half a dozen buildings in less than :10 min utes. The work of the firemen was superb. THE POTATO CROP. It Will licacb Total of Over 282,000,000 Haghttla. New York, Nov. G.—This week's Amer icau Agriculturist has a valuable article on the potato crop of the country for 18'J5. It seems that this year's yield is something phenomenal—no other year t.pproaohing its magnificent total. The crop measures up over 282,000,000 bush els, against only 1S5,000,000 bushels last year. The Pacific coast is the only re gion where the crop shows a falling off, while the Empire state largely takes the lead, with over 40,500,000 bushels, against 28,500,000 bushels last year. The percentage of incrense is none the less marked in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Illi nois,Wisconsin, Iowa, Missouri, Kansas, and, indeed, everywhere in the central western states. Canada is no excep tion to the rule of a bountiful crop, the 18D5 yield approximating 57,000,000 bushels, showing a material over last year's crop. TWO BANKS CLOSED. Failure of One Institution at Keur What coiu Starts a Run on Another. New Whatcom, Wash., Nov. 0.—The Bellingham Bay national bank lias closed itsdoors by order of the directors, being unable to meet the county treas urer's demand for the county's deposit. The cashier reports the liabilities ap proximately at $105,000, of which $77, 000 is due depositors. The suspension of the Bellingham Bay national bank precipitated a run no the Bennett national bank, which continued until the close of banking hours. The directors held a meeting and adopted a resolution not to open and directing the president to wire the comptroller of the currency to place the bank in the hands of the examiner. The directors say that within 30 days sufficient assets can be realized on to settle with all creditors. SCOLDING WIVES. Minnesota lluflbaudu Muat Keep Them at Home or Muzzle Them. St. Paul.

II the board of fortification accepts several propositions made by Norman Wiard, and the latter is able to carry out his engagements, the United States will be in possession of by far the largest and most powerful rifled gun in tho world, and the means will be at hand for the easy conversion of what is now obsolete ordnance into the most ef fective modern rifles. Mr. Wiardinade his propositions to the board during the present session. First he asked the board to make an allotment for the Reading Wiard 12-inch rifle, which he has brought almost to tlie point of com pletion. This is an old Hodman smooth bore cast iron gun converted into a rifle, and Mr. Wiard told the board that this weapon would show one-third more en ergy than any other 12-inch rifle, could be fired more rapidly, and would show greater endurance than tho best of the modern-built, expensive steel guns. Next he offered to take the big 20-inch smooth-bore cast iron Rodman gun, just removed as obsolete from the earthworks at Fort Lafayette (N. Y.) harbor, and convert this into a 20-inch rifle. As the largest rifle in any service is 10-inch caliber, this would be the greatest rifle ever made. Tho lG-inch guns have all failed, but Mr. Wiard as serted to tho board that this 20-inch rifle would stand extremely rapid firing, endure at least 100 rounds in ten hours, and throw a shell weighing a ton with an energy far surpassing any shot on record. The last proposition is to build an all-steel, high-powered 10-inch rifle, which he guarantees to excel in en durance and performance any servico gun of like size in the world, and to possess tho remarkable property of be coming stronger with every shot flred from it. This last property is to be se cured by some peculiarity of construc tion that is not yet fully disclosed. The board has taken these propositions under consideration. SiSS- LEPROSY IN AMERICA. ltread Disease I» Always More or Lets Prevalent Everywhere. There is leprosy in Key Westr-four or five cases—but, according to a phy sician interviewed by the Florida Times-Union, there is leprosy in nearly every large city in the United States, New York, Philadelphia, Boston, while at New Orleans they have a leper hos pital. "There may be a case in Jackson ville for all I know," said Dr. Porter. I don't know really that there is one, but if there was, there should be no reason for alarm. Tlicro have been a few lepers in Key West off and on for several years. All Key Westers know they are there, and as the lepers arc kept off of the thoroughfares, nobody is afraid that the disease will spread. "It is true the disease is contagious, but not dangerously so. You might sit down and talk to a leper every day in the year and not catch leprosy. If, however, the leprosy virus should be communicated by a fly, as has been done, or in any other way directly ,to a sore on your own body, ten chances to one you will have the disease. At Havana, you know, they have a leprosy hospital. I go to Havana about twice a year, and I usually pay a visit to the Lazarene hospital, where the lepers are kept. Here leprosy can be found in all of its stages. A man suf fering in the advanced stage of leprosy is one of the most revolting sights hu man eyes can gaze upon." AN EMBARRASSING SITUATION. Predicament of a Man Who Was Robbed of His Trousers. It was 10 o'clock at night. A lonely and friendless man was sleeping in the court house yard, says the St. Louis Republic. The slcy was serene, the breeze was brisk, and 14,595 stars were lhining in the sky. The lone and friendless man continued to sleep. Two stealthy forms approached. Without word of warning they laid hold of the sleeper and removed his trousers. Ho continued to sleep. At 10:30 o'clock he awoke. He blushed and started toward the Chestnut street police station. At the corner of Fourth and Chestnut streets he met two young women, at tired in the height of'fasliion, who had just emerged from the Planter's hotel cafe. They gazed in wonderment, but it was only for a moment. One of tliem fainted and the other screamed for the police. Patrolman Toney rushed to the aid of beauty in distress, and after the young woman had been revived placed her and her companion on a Laclede avenue street car. They re fused to give their names. The trouser less sprinter continued his flight to the Chestnut street station, where he laid his weeping eyelids upon the shoulder blades of Sergt. Ityan and gave his name as Josepli Breck. He was accom modated with a place to sleep, and re plenished his wardrobe tho next morn ing. Breck is a painter, and lives near Forest Parle. ENVELOPE FLAPS. OM Nags Bald to Be Used to Male* Them Adhesive. Envelope-lickers will do well to pause and ponder on the fact that a man has died in consequence of in dulging in the popular but disgusting trick of moistening the adhesive en velope with the tongue, advises Oak land Echoes. Some will say: "How can gum arabic poison any person?" Gum arabic? Are they so innocent as to believe that this article, raised to a prohibitive price by the Egyptian war and subsequent closure of the Soudan, is used on the envelopes? Do they see that ancient nag hobbling down the street? There i3 the parent of their gum arabic and in a few weeks' time, when that decrepit animal has made his bow to the knacker, and yielded up his hoofs to the glue-boiler, perhaps they may have a lick at his remains on the envelope they are dispatching to a friend or sweetheart. And should some taint of animal poison lurk amid that "gum," they may soon require other, and black-bordered, envelopes to be licked for them when their mourning cards are sent out. Perhaps no more unpleasant part of a visit to a stationer's shop is when, hav ing folded the small purchase in a flimsy envelope, the tradesman raises it to his lips, opens a hippopotamus mouth, pro trudes a tongue which looks at least two sizes too large for its habitation, and then with a smirk hands the damp delicacy to his customer.. May he, of all men, be warned by the premature departure of a fellow-licker, and may all who send literary missives to their friends rest assured that the recipients of these envelopes would feel better pleased if these, coverings had been closed without any exhibition of moist anatomy. •V'SiT rws. •rr-f in^v.TrT"^*-5"' ''.Ikr-.vvj" .""•* *:--.'•'' "-.y-.'-vr- .-T«.

Francois, the eminent French statisti cian, who has been making a careful study of the wealth of nineteen of the principal nations of the globe. It will interest penniless people to know that I this calculator estimates the riches of this country at 313,000,000,000 francs, or reckoning 5 francs to the dollar, nearly I ffl3,000,000,000, says the New York Woi Id. England Is the next with 265,000,000, 000 francs and France the third in line, being the possessor of 235,000,000,000. Germany's fortune is considerably less —only 101,000,000,000 and the Russian empire, though far more vast, is con siderably poorer, with but 12,000,000, 000. Three states possess more than 60, 000,000,000 and less than 100,000,000,000 each. Austro-Ilungary, 82,000,000,000 Spain, 03,000,000,000, and Italy, 64,000, 000,000. The fortunes of the eleven other countries vary between 3,000,000,' 000 and S4,000,000,000 francs. The actual amount of money pos sessed by the various nations bears but a feeble proportion to the above figures of national wealth. The Bank of France for example, is responsible for only about 0,500,000,000 francs, or a lit tle less than 3 per cent, of the total for tune of that country", while other coun tries have still less caslj in their pock ets or strong boxes, for France has the greatest per capita wealth of any coun try in the world.
