Who Established Peonage?
(From the Worcester. Mass., Even
ing Post. )
The Atlanta Constitution, in
commenting on the Alabama
system of peonage, for which 99
indictments have lately been
returned in that state, respect
fully points out that it was a
federal., commander, Brigadier
General Ruger, who when made
provisional governor of Georgia
by General Meade, entered into
a contract whereby some negro
convicts were let out to ji con
ceru for so much per man,. The
Constitution does not say that
in a spirit of sectional bitterness
but thinks that General Ruger
did the best he could wirb ac
cumulating convicts. JT h e
northern fire eaters who are so
loui in their denunciation of
every southern, will bave to
sing a little lower if the fact be
established that the system was
started by a aortberuer.

Was Thought To Be The Top -Notch of
Piracy, But,
Immediately after the cruel
war of the rebellion, in speak
ing of the tariff, President
Abraham Lincoln said:
"Yes, we may all congratu
late ourselves that this cruel
war is nearing its close. It has
cost a vast amount of treasure
and blood. It h is, inde d, been
trying hour ror the republic.
But I see a crisis approaching
which unnerves me and causes
me to tremble for the safety of
my country As a result of the
war, corporations have been
enthroned an era of corruption
will follow in high places, and
the mouey power will seek to
prolong its reign by working
on the prejudice of the people
until all wealth is aggregated
in the hands of a few and the
republic is destroyed. I feel
at this moment more anxiety
for the safety of my country
than ever before, even in the
midst of war."
But that astute statesman
and politicians did not know or
realized the greed aroused in
his party Republican by the
war and war measures that fed
the government with war funds
and the protected Infants with
a power destined to be greater
than his party, destined to
legally fleece the American peo
ple, whom his great heart lov
ed. Destined to finally be the
undoing of that party, destined
to create a plutocracy so strong
that it has become the dictator
of the Republican party.
James G. Blaine plead with
his party to trim its sails aud
"cast an anchor to the wind
ward" but it laughed him to
scorn and for that reason used:
"Ruu Romanism aud Rebellion"
to remove him from power.
Theu McKinley Dingleyism
forged to the front and without
the excuse of war, sent the tar iff
rates sky high, higher than
Lincoln dreamed of in 63 and
04, but before Mr. McKinley's
death, he, even he, sawth ter
rible trend ot the evil and the
terrible end if the pace was
kept up and caused him 10 say:
"My tariff bill has done its
work. We have been able to
build up many industries in a
short time, and now gradually,
but inevitably, our tariff must
be reduced."
President Roosevelt has made
a grandstand play at reduction
but was promptly called down
by the infants that have waxed
bold and stronger than the Re
publican party, its creature has
become its master.
Japanese Streets.
In Japan houses are not num
bered according to their sequence
but according to the order of
their erection, says the Pitts
burg Gazette That is to say'
No. 73 may adjoin No. 1, with
No. 102 on the opposite side.
No. 2 is probably a mile down
the stn et. The city of Tokio
is made up of 1330 streets in
which are 318,320 houses. These
houses are divided up into 13
wards. If a street passes
through more than one ward
the houses are numbered ac
cording to the waads in which
they are; that is. a street p iss
