The Demo-rats are go ing to take particular pains to manu facturo this test cas-e. They h.-.ve ar ranged for tho creation of a vacancy in a municipal ollico to bo Jilied by a rpechii election, nt which election ti.ov exnect women to attempt to vole. They will imitate the proceedings which thev hr! c will turmiuuto in tins voidaco of tho j,-;w. Tlie ground upon which tho constitu tionality of tho law is to bo attacked is that tho afUrmntivo declaral'on of the qualilicatiuns of electors captained the state constitution is exclusive ir fem.-i'.o jjersons, ho nr: tiuned therein. not, men - . tnet in extraordinary session last Mon- day in accordance with tho proclama tion of Grover Cleveland. Mr. Cnr.p was chosen speaker :n accordance with the caucus action on Saturday. Ex ; Speaker Keeel was the choici; of Jho IJ . publican caucus. At tho Republican caucus, upon ids unanimous nomination, Mr. Iteed said: "Four months ago, ho said, thoy had left congress end returned to their . homes, with the country in a prosperous condition. Al tho mills wero running, tho spindles playing, fu-nacos roaring, labor eniployeel otery.Uieio, and the people happy. Now, ho continue-d, we aro called back to find an '-v'raordinarv businoss depression, uislrifet in all cir- clcs and a general demoralization of tho finances of tho country, a condition of Course, he said, p-ecipitated by Demo cratic failure to legislate. In thi3 emer gency tho Democrats call upon the Re publicans to lay asida all partisanship, forget everything that has been dono in tho past and join with the Democrats to get thera out of their present troubles." Cimnirj- A bovc; I'jirty. Congre3 is now in session, and I 'rover Cleveland has submitted his special mes sage, which we will revlow in our next -issue. Tho coming togMhcr of congress jja an occasion that culls for patiiotism. not partisanship. The duty ;:f Uenublic ans in this emergency is clear. Presi dent Cleveland, though a Democrat, is striving to sustain a Republican policy as regards tho cuncney. It is no lesa the duty or Republican congressmen and - senators to sustain a Democrat than a Republican president in hu eiTorts to avert business calamity iicd national dis-i unless with tho new birth of n.cney credit. j came a restoration of confidence. Thoso The difficulty of tho situation is that I hoard now would hoard then.Thoso tho president's own party is divided, the j " !:o profits in trade or nianu majority being opposed to his own poll-1 f wtsiro now and so hate cancelled orders cy. They look upon that poliav as Re- '" slopped the nulls and factories, would publican in principle-- a il is-r.nd there-! fore to bo cpic-:ed. Tho temptation to a Republican of falrong partisan proelivi - tics is to hold aloof and help embarrass tho Democrats. This might bo good ; politics if it did not involve tho country nlso, but in this instanco it would not only be unpatriotic, bu foolii-h. It would be unwise oven from the narrow view of pcrth-anship. For the parly that comes forward most promptly anJ -with tho greatest unanimity of public spirit affords the business and financial iuteresls of tho country the relief so . greatly needed will haiotho strongest hold upon public respect and public gratitude. In tho past tho Republican . -party has won the foremost in remedial and reformatory legislation and adminis- trntion nnd if hietorv now renoritr. itst-lf I the result will be all that tho mcst zeal- ous liepublican partisan could ask. Il - will bo at onco tho vindication of the ! Republican as the true party e tho poo- .plo nnd the one to bo looliett to for wise 1 counsel nnd legislation iu times of pub lie peril and distress. Itcvcntics Jcereasi:ir. Tho "hard times" aro beginning to produce their efiect on imports and the revenues of tho government. Tho rc- coipts from customs, which, during the last fiscal year averaged two million dol lars moro per mouth than they did dur ing 1891-2, havo bejun to fall. Thoso for 'last month wero 82,500,000" below thoso of tho corresponding month of last year. Imports reached their high est ioint in March, and einco then they linvo been dwindling steadily. Tho effect of tho financial stringency did not . Bhow themselves nt the custom house Jmmediately because tho bulk of the im ports lind leen ordereil in ndyaneo of tho "hard times.'" Orders nro being .- j;ivou moro carefully now and tho vol uuio of imports may bo decidedly less in . August nnd Septeinbor than in July. In that event there will ho a further , reduction in revenue, but there will bo i cone in expenses. Those for last month ' -. wen threo nnd a third million greater! than for July, 1S92, though the total! - rexonuo was about 83,.rAX,CO0 less. Thero ! is no great Eurplus in tho treasury and tho July expenditures were 8S,5OO,P0O in , excess of the revenue for the month.

This made tbo demand very' small by other than speculators, and at last oven they took tho nlara:.

Then tho dam burst, thoac cuuuilution of material was thrown on tho market like a fl.od, and tho men who had sought to get rich by holding it were swept off their feet in the cur- rcnt and landed on tho shores below to keep company with other financial wrecks that have resulte.i from attempts to corner the food of tho people. Asa prominent writer on financial matters remarked in one of the great dailies: "On broj I economical grounds there are reasons why benefit may come out of tho great drop in prices. The product is now down where it can be sold ami moved out, and that sort of liquidation brings money and brings re lief to tho situation." Prominent operators wero on tho market tho next day picking up all the j offerings at tho reduced prices, and it is I understood that a good part of the etui" was sold for export to bo paid for with some of tho gold ordered to bo sent this way this week. As for tho gamblers who have lost heavily by the collapse, they deserve no pity and will recoivo none, except, perhaps, from a few per sonal friends. Thoy invited disaster and now must suffer it pari or tho couse quencej of their own folly. S;;st uni tin' Xnlion Crotlit. However diverse may be tho theories of senators and congressmen regarding financial legislation, ono underlying motive should animate all. Let the natit nal credit bo sustained at all hazards. It is not more currency the cjuntry needs fo much as moro con Sideuco. If doublo tho amount of cur rency were to bo suddenly had it would not eace the money market a particlo f:ic'' :! 1:!:i5 condition then. Tho country h .is bti r. prt.rperons nnd full of activi ties ,5cfon:icr years whej it hart much less currency than now. But it had then confidence and tiie money circulat ed. So, after all, tho real impetus of business is faith. The true policy of the government is to strengthen its credit. If to do this it is r.eeec;:ry to buy gold by selling londs it will bo tho cheapest and most eco nomical thingjto do. To go on as wo aro now costs billions. Rut when the United States takes from Europe some or the gold hoarded there the national credit will bo strengthened, public con fidence restored, business activities re sumed, profits will again appear, labor v;11 hnv0 employment nnd even fcilver "ill bo benefitted. Sympathy lor Colorado. The situation in Denver, as it was pictured in tho dispatches Inst Wednes day is truly pitiable. It is n new nnd terrible experience for this generation of Americans to see great masses of men wh- nre r.blo nnu willing 10 work siisTering from hunger. Ono of tho cro:vninggIorits of tho Republican parly has beoa tho fact that under its rule there has always been work nnd wages for the growing population of tho coun try. The constant development and eli versilication of industries under protec tion has created a steady demand for labor which not even tho great volunio of foreign immigration could sat'sfy. Tho closing of tho silver mines in Colorado and the general stagnation of manufacturing industries havo forced n multitude of men into idleness. Public and privato charity is taxed to the utmost to keep tho unemployed in Denver ncd its vicinity from actual starvation.

TheXew Orleans States in a recent article attacked tho pentiion Hysto'm in a vigonrus article and yelped like a whip ped cur, and whined at tho enormous amount the south was paying into the treasury for pennionB for the Union sol diers. It claims that since the war tho south has contributed toward the pay- i ment of pensions tho enormous sum of f.T-;0,000,000. Tho Stales in harmony with tho scl t (,;er huXoTS of Ul0 north aro jn tho ,abit ,1..1.i;,- ,.-, , Sfs 0c-,!nt;ai.. pPf.tionab ami Jhnt. the money disbursed in pension pay ments xvsh expended almost altogether in tho north. From the report of the commissioner of internal revenue of 1500, tho latest we have, wo obtain tho respective a'nounts of internal revenue, the only form cf taxation paid directly to tho national government derived from tho several states. Ir?t us compare theso with the amounts of pensions which go to the various states: Texas paid, 5"OG,'57.1 of internal taxes into the federal tieasury and drew out cOtV.,250. Illinois, on tho other hand, paid SnG,7Ki.:V.3 of tLo internal tax and itrew out only $D.3J'",0CX in tho form of pensions to her citizens. South Caro liiri, tho implacable, foe of Union veter ans, paid only S71.S12 of the tax and drew in pensions 6171,120, while New York paid 817,870,978 and received only Sll,7CiV'lIK). Tennessee contrib uted $1.27S,Su2 and received 82,431,- j xs. xebraka and tho two Dakotaspaid 31,S93,ri3S and received $S,TD1,05D. Ala b.ima's tax was 8Kj,771. Hor pension receipts wero 8100,729. Arkansas con tributed 895,71S.PG to the internal reve nue and received 81,170,903.77 in pension payments. Louisiana and Mississippi paid together 8731,S32i!3 and received sS17,5.2.1.j. IJ thus appears that tho southern states profit by whatever of sectionalism thoro is in tho pension laws. If tho northern states receive mcro in tho ag gregate they also bear moro than their share of tho burden. In view of there facts, it is not only unpatriotic, but supremely impudent, in southern Demo crats to assail tho north for paying mono out of its own pocket to keep tho heroes who preserved the Uuion from poverty and tho alms-houe. Teaclur.s Institute. Tho second week of tho instituto shows an increased attendance and in creased zeal on tho part of both instruc tors and teachers. Tiio enrollment has now reached nearly 100 par cent of the necessary teaching forcoof the county. Every ono teems to be working hard, full of enthusiasm, nnd wed! pleased with the institute. Tiio social feature is ! no means an unimportant faotor, and every one enjoys it, and is profited by it. There seems to be a teudency on the part o tho teacherfe to undertako to do too much work; that is, to take pnrt in too many classes. Wo fear that this is duo to tho idea, that, in order to pass a satisfactory examination it is necessary to take the work in all tho branches. Prof. Dearmont's history class is one of the largest and most enthusiastic; its members have beeu studying tho re bellion. The physiolng claps in charge of Prof. Maxwell is giving attention to tho spe cial organs of sense. The classes iu arithmetic are large, but Prof. L'liidoti conducts them very skill fully. Those mentioned and tho classes in K.iglish grammar and mental science,: conducted by Prof. Gallaher, aro tho largest classes in the institute. Tho iutereot in all tho classes is in creasing, and in somo of them it seems to have reached fever heat already. The name of Miss Edith Oilman, of Independence, Kansas, was omitted fron our list last week. Tho following havo enrolled since our last report: Cora Frye, IJ. T.

This school differs from most Sabbath schools of tho county as it is attended, as it should be, by many of tho parents, who tnko on active part in tho exercises. At tho close of the regular lessons verses from tho Scriptural w;re repeat ed nnd to all such n Testament was given and tho school was supplied with n dozen or more, and as the good work of supply ing their pupils with Testaments has begun, it will, without doubt, go on until all tho pupils are supplied.
