Foe the benefit of inquirers, the Globb desires to state that there is a vast difference between the Modern Woodmen now encamped In this city and the modern woodmen who deal in state pine Unas. Tue Chicago Herald, commenting on the welcome desertion of the party by that lump of ignorance, Tim Campbell because he "Is a protectionist of the Sam Randall school," says "the party would l>e better off if it wore well rid of all the Democrats of the Tim Campbell stamp," «nd his action should be duplicated by Gorman, Brlce and Smith Jr. The party will certainly not get rid of them by 3tandinsr on the ground it now occu pies, for a man can be a pretty stiff pro tectionist and be a Democratic protest ant against doing anything more with the taiiff. The Pioneer Press, with that indif ference to fact which characterizes it when It wishes to score a point against the Democrats, speaks of "the immense free markets" for our product* which we eained by the reciprocity feature of the Mc&inley act "1b exchange for the free admission of Cuban sugar into this country." The McKlnley act weut Into effect Oct. 6, 18©0. It put Cubau and •11 other raw sugar on the free list. It »a« not until July 1, 1892, nearly two years later, that the treaty of reciprocity with Spain wus promulgated, under whieli ft>e import of some and ■ reduced tax on others of our products Into Cuba were conceded by Spain, for which that country aot nothing in exchange except the withdrawal of a threat. SHOES AND CHARTERS. Gen. Sanborn is of the opinion that, as the legislature frames a general law for the government of towns mid vil lages, it can with equal facility frame a central law that will fit th« wants of all the cities of the state. Other men share the opinion of Mr. Sanborn and the franiers of the amendment; to the con stitution adopted In 1592 either were of his opinion or did not look far enough ahead to see the effect of their strait jacket on legislation for cities. They may have only seen the evil of the con stant tinkering, and cared but to stop that. But there is one solid tact that Mr. San born and those who think with him ignqre.if they sense it at all,* fact that is so solid a rock that any general measure of municipal government designed for all cities will be shattered on it; and that is that each city has an individuality M distinct from that of any other city as is each individual in it from any other, a general law regulating and prescribing the dishes all should eat, or th« style and quality of clothes they should wear.orthe religion they should believe might as well be attempted. Paternalist who chanced to wear crowns and wield scepters centuries aiio discovered the futility of all such efforts,but their descendants in the men tal Hue still preserve some of their no* lions, and this about uniformity of city charters is one of them. Such people resemble the shoemaker who has his uniform set of lasts built on some theory of the average length and width of feet, and 011 which he builds the footwear of his patrons, re. eardless of the idiosyncrasies of each pair of feet. If the shoes fit, so much the better for the feet, but if they don't fit, it makes no difference; the toet must adapt themselves to the shoe, how ever painful or misery-breeding the process may bo. In time, as all we un happy slaves of St. Crispin kuow, tho feet do accomplish this, but it is be cause they persist in making the shoo adapt itself to the foot, which they ac complish by diut of stretching the leather here and there to yield room to tho protuberance*. But this process is bad both for the shoe and the feet. A general law tits the towns and vil lage.", and they get along with tolerable comfort under it, it is true; but, carry ing out the comparison, villas* 1* and towns are infant feet, for which the shoe is made more ranuy and ot softer and more pliant material, and the feet themselves are less insistent on their own individuality. The general law is larse and generous, and touches the wants of the village at a* tew points only, and there easily. Besides, the fret of infants are all alike; they haven't be«un to develop those features which differentiate them from ali other feet; and the general's dhe last answers very well. Bin with the feet of errown persons, and cities as weJi, it Is quite another matter. One last will not do for all. The sensible men or women who nave grown into wisdom, through niuoh ex perience with shoes and shoemakers and misery, learu either to have a last mod eled from their feet, or to see that the shoemaker patches his last out here and there where a change in form is needed to bring the iinished shoe into harmony with the individuality of the foot. Shoes and charters, therefore, should be espe cially made for each particular person or city. It would be more productive of comfort, of course, if each person were his own shoemaker, but that is no rea son why each city cannot be the maker of its own charier. A STATE JAG HOUSE. Quite a volume of discussion may be expected to follow the proposition of the Keely league to substitute the bi cloride of sold treatment for inebriety for the present system of committing chronic inebriates to the asylum at Rochester. The proposition of the league is based upon the theory that the treatment can be administered at a less outlay of money than is involved in the process of commitment to the asylum and the maintenance of the patieut there. If the league can lay before the legis lature the figures to establish this theory as a fact, it will probably command the support of a good many practical men who pay little attention to the humani tarian aspect of the matter, and it is not impossible that the experiment may be tried. The national government insti tuted this treatment at the soldiers' home as an experiment, and, after a year's trial, adopted it as a permanent Feature, declaring that it had accom plished a net saviug to the fuud for the support of old soldiers amounting to many thousands of dollars. Colorado, Maryland and Louisiana have each made provision for tUe treat ment at state expense, and the time may yet come when each Btate shall bo equipped with an official "jag houss" of its own. WHO BACKS THE TRUST? It sometimes happens in warfare that an attack leaves a gap opeu to the ene my, and It occurs sometimes in the dis cussion of economic questions that the writer, in his eagerness to make his point, makes unwitting admission of facts that, were his attention drawn to their significance, he would uot have made. So, when a Republican contem porary, Illustrating the possible exten sions that might result, and logically would result.trooi the nationalization of the railroads, points to the sugar trust as a more powerful monopoly, and one to which the policy would more fitly ap ply than the roads, it unwittingly ar raigns the* senators of its own party In terms as severe as any Democrat uses. After showine what a rapacious this the trust is, how it das taken its $10,000. --000 plant and capitalized it at eight times its value and declared enormous dividends on its stock, it sayß: "It is a well established fact that tue balance of power in the United States senate was held by men in the Interest of the sugar trust, and that the sugar schedule, either framed by or assented to by the managers of the trust, was made the condition of the approval or rejection of the bill. It was comparatively easy for the legislate authority to get at the railroads aud establish a law re quiring reasonable rates. No such con trol has as yet been found feasible in the case of the sugar trust." The trust demanded and secured the tax of one eiithth of a cent, and the additional one tenth on imports from export bounty paying nations. The other day senator Gray called up his motion to cut out these features of the law. Twenty-three sen ators voted for the motion, all Demo crats but one. Senator Washburn. Twenty-seven senators voted against it. Here are the names of the Republi cans, a list fit to be enrolled In any list ot hypocrites which any student of that trait might cull from all the pages of history i Aldrlch, Hansbrough, Mitchell (Or.), Allison, fcUwley, Morrill, TgirgAffiy Fa-ul MILY GLOBE: PRIBAf H3KSfBT§,. fifidfiHlfeß 28, isn.

"No such control has as yet been found feasible in the case of the sugar trust because a solid Republican^ vote was cast Against getting such control and loosening the nip of that trust on the senate and the people. If the war of re taliation goes on, and sugar rises in price from three to six cants a pound, the country will have the handful of Repub lican senators who votfd to retain the trust's privilege of robbiry to thank fof it; senators of a party claiming the re suits of the fail •lection aa a vindication and a vote of confidence in it. HOT TAMALES. The golden silence of Senator Shee han is a fountain in the wilderness, a very rock in the weary desert of idle babbling with which the public has been regaled by most of the elected statesman who are mistaking their as pirations for inspiration. • * Republican papers are a unit In con demning the free trade stand of the Democratic association. £>ut then, if they failed to do that they would fall to be good Republican papers. It is true that figures won't lie— not voluntarily and maliciously—but when one comes to size up that pine land re port, with its tables of figures and sta tistics, ons almost loses confidence in figures. If Alden Jeewhlz Blethen makes one more trip to St. Paul,only Just one more trip, mind, and then goes back to Min neapolis to inform reporters of what be failed to see In St. Paul, the opinion will get out that he—well, that he saw more than he ought to have seen. * » Senator Sabin is not to be held ac countable for the army of grafters and mudsills who hang around tho Mer chants' hotel announcing themselves as part and parcel of the anti-Wa3hburn campaign, and Rivinc out "official" in formation to credulous reporters. Sabin doesn't do his fine surgical work with a cross-cut saw. • • J. J. Hill, P. B.

William Calder's excellent company will be seen for the first time at this theater, in Sut ton Vaue's famous English play, "The Span of Life."

CjBAXD R.<rips, Mich.. Dec. 27.— Frank 0. Ives arrived in this city to night and piyes tp the Free Press for publication tflo following challenge: 1 will 01ay Jacob Schaefer cushion caroms from $6,000 to $10,000 a side, 10 be played the latter part of February, 1895, at any place he may choose, and jay backer will post a forfeit at twenty-four hours' notice. Regarding Schaefer'6 challenge to me J wish to say 1 cannot understand why he wishes to restrict or abolish the balk line. In England Roberts concedes 8,000 to 12, --000 start ift 20.000 points, and Vignaux concedes from 20 to 200 per cent. I cannot understand why thoy wish to take away the prestige I have established in that game, as cushiou caroms and three cushion caroms equalizes all players. 1 cannot see why 1 Bhould concede to that handi cap until all players,iucludiug Schaefer, concede my superiority. To moretirmly establish my superiority, 1 will say that 1 am willing to concede him points at the 14-inoh balk line. I will do this in preference to changing the game. The English and French champious have not changed their style of playing in ten years, ex cept in conceding points, and Schaefer should not ask me to do it. Any time he is willing to play cushion caroms for not less than $5,000 a side and not less than GOO points I will ac commodate him. In conclusion I wish to say 1 will concede any player on earth, Schaefer barred, 100 points id a 600-point game for not less than $.3,000 a side. CHICAGO TRAINS LITE.

Before ad journment on Saturday evening the entire groundwork of the platform to be submitted to the people by the next grand convention of the People's party will be laid. It will make an entirely new era in the history of the party, and ring Id one of the most important changes It has ever undergone in the eight years or its existence. The executive committee acts as one advisory board, however, and the plan decided upon by the committee and the representatives who will be present from all parts of the country will gov> crn the convention when !t meets to draw up a platform for the '90 cam paign, and whatever action is taken at this meeting can be taken as an indication of the party platform.

J. S. Coxey addressed a meeting to~ night, at which were a uumberof prom inent Populists, his remarks beiug on financial and other questions of the day. In an interview tonight Air. Coxi-y ex plained at some length his Noti-Interest-Hearing, Bond scheme. His proposition for the solv lug of the financial and labor problems for all municipalities, towns and town ships to issue non-interest-bearinir bonds to the amount of half of their assessed property value, these bonds to run for twenty-five years, and to de. posit these bonds as security for the re payment of the money with the secre tary or the treasury at Washington, making it mandatory upon the secre tary to issue the face value of the bonds in full legal tender money. "These bonds," he said, "would be deposited with the secretary of the treasury at Washington as security that this riioney will be paid back in twenty live years in annual installments at the rate of 4 per cent >er anunin, all pay ments to be applied on the principal, without interest. Then the secretary of the treasury would issue the face value of these bonds in legal tender money amounting, for instauce, to f 100,000, holdinc out $1,000 as the actual cost of making the money. Therefore, $99,000 would be sent to the city and placed in the hands of the city treasurer to be paid out for building electric light plants, water works, school houses and paving the streets, and all kinds of pub lic improvements. This would furnish employment for the army of idle work iugioeu." Jurymen Want Damages. CUCVK&AXD, 0., Dec. 27.—XV. B. Hopkins, foreman of the jury before whom Baker Steele, t.

That New York Syndicate Winds Up Ita Affairs. Nkw York, Dee. 27.— The United States government bond syndicate has dissolved after disposing of 35 per cent of the issue. The remaining 05 per cent has been divided among the mem bers. The new currency plan, It i 9 alleged, has induced liquidation by holders of government bonds, which had been the cause of timid holders dis posinsr of their bonds, and which caused the decline below the syndicate price. Tho new issue is now being quoted U7;,@118. Washington, Dec. 27. — Secretary Carlisle has nothing to say today In regard to tho published statement to the effect that the new currency plan, it was thought, was responsible for the decline of the price of the new issue of bonds to a point below the syndicate price. Assistant Secretary Curtis who was of the opinion that the pending currency bill had little If anything to do with the matter. The fact that some or the small hold«rs had liquidated their bonds he regarded as hot sitjniticant. In many eases thesa liquidations, he thought were for the purpose of raising money with which to meet obligations falling due Jan. 1. In Mr. Curtis' opinion there was no significance in the reported fact that the syndicate had sold only 35 per cent of their holdings. It was his understanding that many of the large holders, particularly the trust and insurancecompanies.had"purchased the bond 6 with a view to holding them permanently as a security or reserve. The bonds with accrued interest shonid now be worth approximately 117,5150n the basis of the purchase price. STORM CAUSED WRECK..
