At any rate, there isn't anything the matter with Assessor Johr.slone's luck. Tom Reed's race for the presidency is now made to slow music in a walk. John J. Parker's address at Aurora park yesterday was wholly non-politi cal. St. Paul hasn't so many people as Milwaukee, but they can yell a great deal louder.

Frederick Remington asked Julian Ralph, if the latter survived him, to see that there was engraved on his tombstone: "Frederick Remington. He Knew the Horse." And for once, at least, the marble will record the truth. The Washington Post says that any one who disagrees with Editor Godicin, of the Evening Post, "is never less than a villain." We are inclined to think that this is too severe. He is usually an ass or a knave or a cress between them. The Inter Ocean says that, now that the English troops are out of Nicara gua, the "presidential cuckoos tell us that the country made a jingoistic donkey of itself." Wrong, as usual. They might say, perhaps they do think, that the president prevented the jingoistic donkeys of the press, like the Inter Ocean, and of the laity like Senator John T. Morgan, from mak ing an infernal ass of the country. Whether said or thought.it is a solemn fact. : : ' '"-?.: v.; - ' The New Orleans Times-Democrat, commenting on the surprising winter losses of cattle in the South, with the comparative exemption of the states where the winter is rigorous, says: This is due to complete neglect. The Southern farmers provide no sheds or Dther accommodations for their cattle, and thousands perish in every cold spell. This carelessness grew original ly out of the fact that most of the cattle in the South up to a few years ago were native low-grade stock, which were not considered worth pro viding for. The finer breeds, accus tomed to more care, are probably not as well able to stand the severe weather. Hence the loss is large— far too large. Brave Buck Hinrichsen stood val iantly by his colors at the Chi cago county convention. When it was proposed to adopt a plank demanding the restoration of silver to its ante ' 73 position and free coinage of it, the sagacious sachem smelled a trick of the gold bugs and declared that he, as the big chief of the tribe of the! Illi nois, would have nothing to do with It. "It might mean coinage at a ratio of 16 to 1 or of 30 to 1," he said, and he was going to die in the last IC-to-1 ditch with his boots on and his feathers in 'his hat. Standing on the other, the rHinrichsen side of that bloody chasm, he welcomed the enemy with bloody- hands to inhospitable graves. The silver miners should melt down the Ada Rohan silver statue: and recast it in the heroic mold of Buck Hi line"*" sen. GOOD, EITHER WAY IT GOES. The reargument of the income tax b?fore a full bench is on,. and in due time we shall know whether . the act shall stand as emasculated by. the for mer decision, or whether it* shall be laid away among those other acts of congress that have collided with that ancient and venerable but still solid rock,' the constitution. ;H" It is not probable that the holding of the unconstitutionality of a tax on incomes from rents will be reversed.as the court stood two to six on that and two of the dissidents must change their former opinions, a thing unthinkable of in the case of a justice of that court. The real question that hangs in the balance and on Justice Jackson's judgment is the constitutionality of the act as. an exercise of the taxing power. We care little which way it goes. Nothing is to be said for the tax, save that it is " better than a tariff tax. In mitigation only it can be urged that it was a stagger to reach a class, large ly made up of beneficiaries of govern mental favoritism, who pay nothing to support the government of the Union out of their gains, and but little to the states they live in. It is a sur vival of days when ideas of taxation were cruel-- and when governments were pressed for means and indifferent to how they were obtained. It is as unscientific as possible, excepting only the taxation by tariffs. As an object lesson in taxation and as an irritant. to aid the progress of the public mind in its consideration of the entire question, we hope it will be sustained as before. We think the general effect of taxing incomes derived from everything except rents and bonus will center the attention of those who do pay pay- the tax on the question as nothing else could do. The merchant who pays a tax on the income derived from a business to which he devotes all his time, energy and attention will not view with equanimity a system that exempts his landlord who has little else to. do than draw his untaxed rentals. « The general effect, we anticipate, will be to attract , attention more strongly to the question of deriving the revenues of the federal government from the property of the nation, ex cept as the internal taxes may sup ply it, and to the monstrous iniquity of laying them on what men consume, regardless and indifferent to their ability to pay. This will be the ef fect whether the law be sustained or killed.and if it does it will have served a better purpose than its promoters had in mind. WHAT IS DEMOCRATIC. The Times-Democrat, of New Or leans, we fear has had its Democracy so coated with protection to sugar that it* has lost its sense of what. the article is. Commenting on the letter of President Cleveland to Gov. Stone it says that it is not Democratic for him to put himself in opposition to the sentiment of the party. This "it con cludes is strongly pro-silver because free coinage has had at various times a majority in congress. •'}' There is in this a proposition that Democrats will not admit the accuracy of either as a fact or as a conclusion. While it is true that the house has passed a free coinage measure that the senate rejected, it is also true that the house rejected a free coin age measure that passed the senate. At no time have both houses been agreed o n it when both 'were con trolled by a Democratic majority. As a fact, then, admitting that a Dem ocratic congress can set the pace for the party, it is not a fact that the party favors free coinage at 16 to 1. The proposition that congressmen can declare what is or is not Demo cratic policy will meet with no ac ceptance anywhere. If 'men are to measure their Democracy, for in stance, by the tariff bill that, a Demo cratic congress adopted they will not be able to distinguish themselves from the mass of the Republicans who revolted from ultra-protectionism in '90 and '92. That measure would brand every Democrat as a protec tionist, and, while this brand is sup posed to he a popular one in the sugar planting regions of Louisiana, Demo crats generally resented the stigma in '94. •• ■*; ..?*.•,. .-«; :■>■ Again, as to free -coinage or any other policy there is but one body ca pable of declaring it, and that is the national convention of the party. As to this particular doctrine, opposition to 'which the Times- Democrat de nounces in the president as un-Demo cratic, the latest assemblage of the national Democracy emphatically re fused to declare for it. When Col orado Patterson proposed his amend ment to insert the word "free" before "coinage" in the monetary plank the convention rejected it. So that, so far as this question is concerned, it is the papers like the Times-Democrat,". the Atlanta Consti tution and others of their ilk, who, in insisting on ' a policy the national convention refused to adopt, are un-Democratic -It is the president who is resisting the movement that is attempting to overrule the conven tion that is Democratic. "When a na tional convention shall have adopted a new policy as Democratic and de clared that it is right to coin silver bulion into standard dollars at any thing but the commercial ratio, it wilt be time to discuss the Democracy of the men who will oppose such a policy. And there will be -lots of them. TWO OPPOSING FORCES. The sixteen-to-oners are shrewd and dextrous in the presentation of their case. They know that the shield has two different colors to its opposite sides, and they -present only their own color to view, sedulously ignor ing the other side. They know that men are impelled by two economic forces, the one that makes them de sire* to get the most money possible for what they have to sell, and the other that impels them to get what they want or need with the* smallest possible expenditure of money. These are the two great forces of exchange that lie. at the % base of all trade. They are inherent In the race, forming the primal springs of effort. Directed with differing degrees of in telligence, sometimes misdirected and failing of their purpose, they are yet so general, so persistent, that they are laws of human nature as much as the tendency of bodies to fall to the ground is a law of nature. Without consciously knowing them as laws, all act on them with an impulse that Is innate and invariable. "":!*::.";- The silverite graduate of "Coin's Fi nancial School". plays on one of these 'forces, while keeping the other in abeyance. He appeals constantly to the seller. paints in brilliant and striking colors . : the steady decrease in the market value of the things the THE SAINT PAUL DAILY GLOBE: WEDNESDAY MORNING, MAY 8, 1895. seller has to dispose of. He com pares the price, the farmer gets for his wheat .with what he got "before demonetization," and attributes , it -to that "crime." He promises him a return of higher values if he will . aid in restoring a higher price to silver. He points the struggling holder of equities in real estate, anxiously wait ing for a buyer, to the depreciation in land values, and assures him that it is the silver cure 'that he needs. He tells the earner of daily wages that the depression that has deprived him of his daily work or decreased his daily wage is due to the deprivation of : mintage to silver bullion.and that, with a restoration of its ancient and hon orable station, industry will revive, labor will be in brisk demand, and, instead of the worker hunting the job, the job will seek him. In all this the man is addressed solely as a seller. His cupidity or his desire to get the most for what he has to sell is appealed to. But of the man as a buyer the six teen-to-oner says not a word. He maintains as to that side of the question a discreet and profound silence. And yet ninety men out of every hundred men are within 1 per cent as much a buyer as a seller. The absolute increase oi wealth is estimated to be but 2 or 3 per cent in a century. . Consumption treads so closely on the heels of pro duction that the margin for accumula tion is for most men a narrow and precarious one. , As a buyer, every man, be his purchasing capacity big or little, is deeply interested in buying cheaply; in "getting a good bargain." Trade recognizes this and plays on it. "This is the source of the popular bargain counter. It is the recognition of this that fills the advertising columns of the papers with the announcements of cut prices and rare bargains. It is this that makes everybody hail the invention of -any machine that re duces the cost of production, knowing that its resultant will be the ability to get the thing wanted with a less ex penditure of money. - It was the impulse to get more for their wares than free competition would permit that was the basis of the policy of protection to our manufact ures. It was the knowledge of the disposition of people to buy cheaply that gave the Democrats their strength in their crusade against that policy. It was a recognition of the force of this argument of the cost-en hancing effect of tariffs that drove President Harrison and Mr. MeKinley to oppose cheapness as something to "be avoided. "A cheap coat," the pres ident said, "implies a cheap man un der it." "Cheap," cried MeKinley, with lips wreathed in scorn, "I do not like the word. Cheap and nasty go together." The weakness of the silver move ment, when the glamor wears off, will be in -the realization that ' will come to every man when he reflects that he is just as much interested in getting the things he needs cheaply as he is in getting the most for what he sells; that there is an equation of these two forces when left to their freest play and widest operation that produces the greatest benefit, and that it is essential for the general good that they be subjected to no artificial restricions ' imposed for the benefit of either buyer or seller. . It is considerations like these that put Democracy in opposition to the ' free coinage of any metal at . any other than its commercial ratio; de mocracy with a lower case initial to. distinguish it from that spurious thing Which puts protection into tariffs and now is philandering with protec tion to silver, always and everywhere indifferent to principle, and intent only on "getting there." CHIPS FROM THE POST. Owing to the strict quarantine of the Alabama newspapers the general pub lic is being protected from the thoughts of Reube Kolb. We are patiently waiting for the At lanta Constitution to point out the fact that the watermelon bug was an unknown institution under former na tional administrations. Mr. William E. Curtis, the assistant secretary of the treasury, is said to have the finest collection of golf sticks in the city. In this same con nection Mr. Curtis is said to be a swatter from Swattersville. As we understand it, Senator Voor hees simply reserves the right to change his mind as often as ' he pleases. ' -. ' . . . .-p.. Just as Gov. Alt&eld was preparing for another free silver soar- the Chi cago Times-Herald sprung the fact that all of his contracts with his ten ants provide for payment in gold. Grant and Nellie. Chicago Record. The rumored engagement of Nellie Grant Sartoris to Gen. Kyd Douglas recalls to the public mind the beauti fully tender attachment which Gen. Grant manifested for his daughter. The union with Sartoris was opposed to tha limit by the young lady's, parents; subsequent events proved all too clearly that the old folks' estimate of Sartoris' character had been cor rect. Sartoris was a drunkard, and there 'is probably no language ade quate to portray the misery and the humiliation to which he subjected his wife. To add to the wretchedness of her life, the family of the drunken hus band utterly declined to receive the young wife or to accord her that rec ognition to which, as_£he daughter of Gen. Grant, she had been accustomed and was entitled. Mrs. . Sartoris may have kept silent; her womanly • pride probably prevented her from telling her parents of the dreadful mistake she had made. But rumors of her mis ! cry came from over sea, and they | caused Gen. Grant constant solicitude. One time Hugh Hastings went down to Long Branch to visit the Grants. He was. told that the general was sit ting on the rocks overlooking the sea. and surely enough he presently dis covered Grant perched on a rock and gazing in apparent abstraction over the waters. Hastings stole softly up and put his hands over Grant's eyes, saying: "Now, guess who it is!" But Hastings drew his hands back almost immediately; they were wet with tears; Grant was weeping. - Hastings was too surprised to say anything. "Grant looked up. "Hullo, Hughy," said Grant, kindly. "You ara crying, general! What has happened? What is the matter?" de manded Hastings.' '-." • Grant came pretty near breaking down, but by a heroic effort he pulled himself togther. "We get bad news from England," said he. " "Nellie is un happy, and I can't help thinking about thinking about it all the time! I am in trouble, Hughy, the greatest trouble "of my life!" • . It were difficult, perhaps impossible, to fancy a more beautifully pathetic picture • than that of this foremost man of his time stealing away by himself and communing with his love for that daughter "so many, very many leaguVs away*.

The part is highly emotional and, al though Miss Crosman has always been regarded as a comedienne, her por trayal of her present role shows her to be equally at home in serious work. EXPELLED FROM MINISTRY. Rev. Jonathan Bell, Who Was Responsible for Emily Hall's Death. ' DUDLEY, Eng., May 7.— The Primi tive Methodist conference, held here today,- passed a resolution to the effect that "Considering the character of Rev.

These two gentlemen represent the largest steel interests in the coun try and the fact that they were to gether at the same hotel gave rise to a rumor that they were here for confer : ence upon the steel business. "Has the demand for steel increased to such an extent that the Pennsylvania* com pany has incrased wages, as is rumored by dispatches in the daily press?" Mr. Frick was asked.,"! have noticed no such increase, if there has been one, and I do not believe that any companies are going to raise wages just at present," was his an swer. Later he said that while busi ness is increasing and there is a more active demand for rails and structured iron, the business is not in a condi tion which he hopes it will attain. Mr. Gray, in answer to questions, said: -"With our company, business has been very bad, but is improving, and I am in hopes that we shall have a better year than we had last. Our company has just erected, and has had in operation for the last six weeks, a plate mill which is turning out a great many orders. As far as wages are concerned, I think they will be raised, but I think that any state ment that they are to be raised im mediately is premature." BRITISH SHIP WRECKED. Crew Is Rescued— of a Mo tiny.

Her crew were picked up by the Danish steamer Lu cifer, en route to Batavia. The value of the ship and cargo is said to be not less than $200,000.

Half 'the crew mutinied, and the men at tacked the captain and second officer With knives. One sailor stabbed the captain three times in the back. The captain shot his assai'ant dead. The second officer was. severely wounded by the knives and clubs of the mu tineers, who, with the aid of the first and third officers, were finally driven at -pistol point to the forecastle and kept there until a launch from a Bri ish gunboat, in answer to signals, brought marines to the rescue.

Re ferring to the vouchers which are causing him .so much trouble, . he j said : "There is 'nothing about the issuance of those vouchers but what is all ' straight, as far as I am concerned. The employes in the office," said the governor, "thought they ought to be paid for the work they did for the state during inauguration. I proposed to pay them out of my own pocket. They would not listen 'to my proposi tion to pay them, but insisted that the work was done. for the state and the state should pay . for it. They asked that the vouchers be made to read 'for extra services during the legis lature,' but I would not listen to that. I suppose that if I had made out those vouchers 'for extra services' we would never have heard of it again, but I don't propose to do business that way." COLLUSION suspected.

Rogers for a divorce from his wife, 'Minnie Palmer, the actress, came up for hearing today before Justice Juene, who being still sus picious of collusion, again postponed* the case. George Lewis, who was Sir William Clarke's attorney when Rog ers brought his former suit against* his wife and made Sir William co respondent, testified that Rogers de manded £10,000 damages! Mr. Lewis said he had a letter from an American in which Rogers said it would be worth Sir William's while to pay him £10,000 to leave the country.' Rogers, it appears, also threatened to take the life of Sir William, and made every effort to terrorize him. Mr. Lewis here handed to the justice a package of letters and telegrams sent by Rog ers to Sir William. -a* CYCLONE SUFFERERS. Kansas Families Homeless and in Need of Help.
