The Senate Finance Committee has made of the MeKinley bill " a thing of shreds and patches" prin cipally shreds. It taxes the peo ple's tin-plate to create another mo nopoly, and restores the tax on to baeeo to provide money for buying the "-soldier vote." It taxes art as a sop to buncombe, and increases the duty on' wool and other farm products to fool the farmers; Henry Clay would blush for such a body. , New York World. The Republicans are trying to steal Obion County offices, but the seeret was revealed by one of their thoughtless bosses. There are sev eral Democratic aspiramts for each county office, and the Republicans intended stealing a march on them by placing a full ticket in the field a few days before the election, Their scheme was to run a white man for all the offices except regis ter, which was to have been filled by a colored person, bune and Sun.

Look at the Credentials! New York World. The Republican caucus at Wash ington has sanctioned a bill to place elections for Representatives in Congress wholly under the control of federal agents. The purpose of the bill is to carry out Speaker Reed's edict: "Wo must do our own registration, our 0W11 counting, and our own certi fication. To accomplish this the rights of the States, sanctioned by a century of usage, are set aside.

To ask this question is to con demn the bill. But The World goes further. The power given by this bill is not such as should be bestowed upon any administration or any party. Through its use any party could perpetuate its control of Congress, irrespective of the popular will. It is an undemocratic, unrepubli- can, revolutionary, and a dangerous measure. Are the Republican leaders mad? Pension Appropriations. New York World. One hundred and sixtv-seven and thirty-one dollars ! ( s This is the sum which Represen tative Henderson, of the Pension Committee, boastfully reports as " the amount of the appropriations made by the present House for the benefit of the soldier." This is $08,000,000 in excess of the estimate of the Secretary of the Treasury. It is nearly three times the total cost of the Federal Gov- eminent in the year before the war, It exceeds by moro .than $100,000, 000 the cost of pensions in 1885 twenty years after the close of the war. It surpasses by $24,000,000 the highest annual interest charge on the National debt. It is eoual to the combined annual cost of the standing armies of Great Britaiu and Germany. It is nearly GO per cent, of the National expenditures. And it is a permanent charge go ing on for a generation. The tax-payers evidently have no rights which surplus-spenders feel bound to respect. In Debt to Cameron. The Courier-Journal figures it out that the Republican party is under lasting obligations to Sena tor Don Cameron, of Pennsylvania, and should nominate him for Pres ident to show its gratitude. The train of facts which, has led to this conclusion e1 these: Mr. Matthew Stanley Quay, because of his theft from the Pennsylvania Treasury, was in despair and about to, make a McGinty of himself " deep in the flowing Susquehan nah," when Don Cameron came to his rescue. Don not only saved him from the penitentiary, but absolutely saved his life. It is a universally conceded fact that Quay made Harrison Presi dent and saved the Republican party from defeat in the last cam paign. So the conclusion is inevi table that the Republican party owes Don Cameron a debt of grat itude. His great service to the party was in a manner indirect, but none the less valuable for that matter. The Cotton Crop. WniiliiBham Age-Herald. It is rather early to formy esti mates of the cotton crop. Tliere are many perils of drought and dis aster that it may incur before the picking season is over. But from all sections the report of the grow ing crop is most satisfactory. The prices for cotton have ruled higher this year than for some years pre vious, and there is every indication hat they will continue good until the present crop has been marketed. All of this gives a comforting assur ance of good times to come. With a good cotton crop selling at good prices the South will prosper and be happy. The women of the Oskaloosa, Kan., cily council retired from of fice leaving the city with improved streets, better walks, better Sunday observance, a prohibition of offen sive stock exhibitions and a full treasury instead of an empty one. Their administration has been much above the average. " Isn't an American consumer as valuable to us as a foreign consum er?" asks Mr. MeKinley. Aye; and more valuable. The self-sac rificing American consumer stands the burden of the tariff tax in order that the foreign consumer may get his wages at free-trade nrices. Philadelphia Record. Ingalls is a two-faced sneak. That has been known to a great many people for a long while, but he gave a convincing proof that such is the case when, after voting for free coinage in the Senate, he lobbied against it in the House.
