Reports from Arkansas say that the farmers over there are still busy pick ing cotton. They will probably take holiday during Christmas. The Montgomery Advertiser thinks; “If the powers would let China settle the indemnity by chopping oil the heads of her subjects she would come up and balance the books with cheer ful alacrity.” The brewers says that unless the tax on beer is removed they will fight the ship subsidy scheme with all their united power. This will make the fight interesting, and when the question is “No free Beer no Ship Subsidy,” we expect some statesmen will hunt holes. The Seminole medicine dance in Florida on New Year’s day promises to be an interesting occasion, as it is announced that Joe Jefferson, Matt Quay and Billy Bowlegs will lend their assistance towards making it a suc cess. If they will get Roosevelt to join them they can have a real whooping time. The present Congress is a good spen der, as the vulgate hath it. In exactly eight minutes last Saturday the House passed the pension appropriation bill, which took out of the This was scattering wealth at the rate of more than $18,000,000 a minute, somewhat swifter gait than any bank looter has yet struck. There is the prospect that the inves tigation into the hazing of young Booz may result in the removal of Col onel Mills from the superintendency of the West Point Military Academy. There are some reasons for suspecting that, from motives of military pre judice, Colonel Mills has not made an honest endeavor to present all the facts in the Booz case to the public. Mr. Bryan writes to a Texas friend that he is “grateful to the common people of Texas for the support they gave to our ticket,” and up bobs an un converted iconoclast and wants to know: “Did the common people sup port Bryan and the uncommon people McKinley ? If so, it is queer that the uncommon people should be so much more numerous than the common. The terrible effect of the Galveston Hood may be illustrated by the fact that real estate in that city is now worth only 50 per cent of what it pre viously brought. Galveston is push ing ahead, but, apparently, it will be a long time before she attains that de gree of prosperity which she had achieved before the unfortunate ca lamity overtook her.—New Orleans States. *" - forests oS this country are being Li ears to come, r 'j wnt-r ■■■■ Kali - tr " ' !

The Illinois ’•ritate Grange, in session at Peoria, has adopted a resolution which may be ac cepted as an expression of the farmers’ view of this matter. The resolution strongly disapproves of shipping subsi dies on the ground that to vote them would be an act of “special legislation to put millions of dollars of the peo ple’s money into the pockets of a few wealthy men and corporations who are &bl ® to finance their own enterprises.” TO CURE A COLD IN ONE DAY Take Laxative Bromo Quinine Tab lets.

A weighty question is under discussion there. It le, Under ] what conditions shall the United States build a canal through Central America, with respect to the other nations of the world ? Sha'l the caual be neutral, in peace or in war, or shall the United States, owning it, have the power to close it during war; and to do this, shall it place fortifications at its ends ? Shall Great Britain join with the United States to preserve the canal’s neutrality, or shall all the nations of the earth, or shall the United States go it alone ? Is an ancient treaty with Great Bri tain concerning the erec* ion of fortifi citions by the contracting parties in Central America to be observed, or has it been revoked by the action of Great Britain, and hence, is to be ignored ? Weighty questions are under discus sion. How' will the senate meet them? In the spirit of moderation and reason, in the spirit of patriotism—that higher patriotism which seek to place our country before the world as a great moral force ? It is to be hoped so. It is not a time for jingoism—the jin* goism that disgraced the Senate the day the ill-judged Davis amendment, which is capable of almost any con struction, was adopted. It is not a time to denounce England, not a time to assert boldly and defy. It is a time rather to take counsel, to go slowly, but surely, and after reflection and thought, vote. Then the world will respect the vote. But a vote precipitated at the end of a stormj' debate is not respected,because the world knows that when reason re turns the vote may be overturned by the same men who gave it. Surely the Senate at this crisis will bear itself with dignity, with modera tion and without passion and pre judice. The vital interests of the coun try are at stake. GEN HARRISON’S VIEW. Gen. Harrison’s view of the status of the inhabitants of annexed territory as expressed in his lecture at Ann Arbor Friday is that when lands become part of the United States in the sense of the Constitution their people become citi zens of the United States and the reve nue clause applies. This means that if the Philippine Islands are part of the United States in the sense of the Con stitution and are they not ? the in habitants of the islands can come to from the United States at will and the goods from the Philippine Is lands can enter the ports of the United States free of duty. Gen. Harrison holds these considerations are alarm ing, but it is now too late to regard them. The opinion of Gen. Harrison,of course, is only that of a citizen, albeit a very able citizen, and the decision of the Supreme Court, one which will be one of the most important, it is need less to say, in the history of the Gov ernment, remains to be had,—Nashville American.
