The IMUnnt. Published Wednesdays. It. GL STEVENS, J'abi siu StCYOilS Up to date 294 causes have been found for the Republican defeat in Ohio. There are six back counties yet to hear from. The sickening tragedy of tlio judicial hanging of Joseph Hillinan, the murder er, at Woodbury, N. J., was never ex ceeded by the sickening tragedy of any murder in this country. President Harrison is one man who believes a woman can keep a secret. He has entrusted the copying of his mes sage to his pretty typewriter girl, when he wouhd not trust it to any man. Red and black are the devil's colors, it is said. These were the tints in which the Anarchists of New York recently decorated a hall in which they celebrated their principles. Among the mottoes were one or two suggestive enough, iiko the following: "If you assassinate us with Catling guns, we will dynamite you:" "Our silence in the grave is" more powerful than words can be." A grand day it was in Nicaragua, that on which ground was broken for the ca nal at San Juan del Norte, on the Atlan tic side of the coast. Impressive out of the common it must have been when, as soon as the laborers had begun work with their picks and shovels, the popula tion, both Catholic and Protestant, flocked to the churches and celebrated the event with anthems and prayers of thanksgiv ing. A general holiday was observed. Catholic and Protestant. The scenes at the dedication of the new Catholic university in Washington would have made our Puritan forefathers turn over in their graves. At the banquet in honor of the occasion were the president and vice president of the United States and several of the cabinet officers. The secretary of state made a speech congrat ulating both Catholic and Protestant on the freedom we enjoy. The Presbyterian president himself spoke a few kindly words. Cardinal Gibbons, of Baltimore, and Bishop Gilmour, of Cleveland, represent to the full the spirit of American patriot ism that throbs in the warm hearts of Catholics born and bred under the Stars and Stripes. The Catholics of the new time recognize the American spirit as folly a3 anybody alive. Cardinal Gib bons believes in the separation of church and state, and in the reading of the Bible by the common people. In his dedica tion sermon at the university Bishop Gilmour used these words: Catholics have no contention with public schools or state schools as such. They are willing to ac cept them in America, as tiie^ have done ia Eu rope. on condition that the child shall be taught religion and tho laws of morality. When Talmage's church was burned in Brooklyn, among the first to call on him with words of sympathy were some Roman Catholic priests. He and they had worked together in a common cause, in a fight against immorality and skep ticism. In the same fight, in the holy crusade for education, for morality, for the spiritualizing of the race in this age of materialism, Catholic and Protestant can afford to sink all sectarian bitterness and clasp hands. Wbt Own the United State*? Thomas G. Shearman is a rich man, a lawyer, u6d a'member of the church left by Henry Ward Beecher. Mr. Shear fiian is also an enthusiastic single tax man, and opposed to the absorption of tho land of the United States into a few hands. He has been looking into statistics to find out who at present own this country. ""Be finds, to begin, that the rich are un doubtedly growing richer and the poor poorer. Of the wealthy persons within his own knowledge, there are forty-five individuals and twenty-five estates worth from $150,000,000 to $30,000,000. These seventy represent an aggregate wealth —»f $2,700,000,000, or over $37,55(0,000 ach. The figures show that at present one jalf of the wealth of the United States \s owned by 40,000 persons. More than :wo-thirds of it all is owned by one-sev entieth of the population. The wealth the country, evenly distributed, would ive $1,000 per head to every man, wo lan and child in the Union but one wrentieth of the population have got it learly all. It is probably not their fault nore than that of false economic sys em3 that causes riches to roll themselves ip like this. Pittsburg has sixty-seven millionaires, Cleveland has sixty-three, while Boston ias two hundred. In three villages near Tew York reside sixty persons whose ggregate possessions foot up $500,000, si. Four men in Chicago are worth ^20,000,000 each. America is far richer than Great Brit The average annual income of the hundred richest Englishmen is about 150,000 the average normal income of the hundred richest Americans is proba ply $1,000,000. At the same time Mr. shearman finds that the average earn ings of quite four-fiftlis of American families do not reach $500 a year and lot a week passes that £ien and mothers md children do not starve to death ig, this rich America. Mr. Shearman concludes his paper: The United States of America are practically wned by less than 250,000 persons, constituting _ass than one in sixty of its adult male population. Within thirty years, the present methods of tax '-n being continued, the United States of Amier will be substantially owned by les3 than 50,000 tOM, constituting leas than one to 600 of the it male population. is plain that this cannot go on for •feF £r •t Keep Thanksgiving! Let us keep it by all means. Let us keep it every year, all over the country —north, south, east, west. Gather all your family around you, every one. Give your children the best dinner you can afford. Let not one word of scold ing come from your lips, let not a chid ing thought enter vour heart. Let the young ones have a rare day of perfect happiness. Let them at least believe they have something to be thankful for. Sorrow and disappointment will come to chill their bright young souls soon enough. Let them say for at least one whole day: I am happy I am glad I was born. For the time will come when they cannot say that. What is more, if any of your children, your relatives or friends, are estranged from you, if you have parted in anger and they have wandered away from you, alone and in pain, go out to them this day and bring them back. Bid them to your Thanksgiving feast, and forgive and be forgiven, for you need it as much as they. The true and only philosophy of life, if one would be happy, prosperous and beloved, is to live constantly at peace with all mankind. Again, if there are unloved, unmated ones in your midst, bachelors, single women who dwell alone, widows and widowers, those lonely souls who are not first best to anybody, bid them to your feast, too. Make them feel for one day in the year that there is somebody who takes a genuine interest in them. Did you ever think what it is not to be first best to any human being to have not a soul who cares more for you than for anybody else on earth? If you never did, think of it now, you who have homes and families. Remember the solitary, those who have nobody to go home to, men and women both those who, with hearts full of kindly emotions, yet are doomed to walk through life unloved. Is there not an infinite sadness in it? What have you to be thankful for dis contented, disappointed man or woman? If you have nothing else, yo* are to be thankful for life itself. You have not been so very happy in life that you feel like giving thanks for it? Nevertheless give thanks. Consider what life is for. It is struggle and strife mostly. Very well. That is exactly what we want to fit us for the lofty heritage of the human soul. If we had no difficulties to wrestle against, to develop the marvelous powers of mind and body that lie latent within us, we should be idiots and jelly fish. Trouble means struggle, and struggle means strength. See that you take it so. Finally, if you believe in. the immor tality of the soul, believe it to some purpose. Remember always that you are an immortal spirit, that nothing can kill you, nothing can starve, hurt or crush you. Whatever happens to you, if you do your best, you will still be an immortal spirit, developing a glorious destiny, and nothing can alter that. Therefore, no trouble or misfortune can matter very much here, where nothing is permanent but change. If you have a trouble that you cannot get rid of, don't go off alone and brood over it. KeCp yourself constantly busy at some useful work. Help other people all you can. Persistently keep bright and jolly thoughts before your mind. Carry this philosophy with you always, and you can at length rise above all dif ficulties, at length find out how to be happy, though miserable. A polite people, we Americans. Not long since the wife of the Chinese min ister in Washington, with a Chinese lady friend, attempted to take a little fresh air in the garden of the Chinese lega tion building. They sat very quiet, looking neither to the right nor left. But in ten minutes a genuine mob had gathered in front of the residence, and was staring at the ladies. The throng was not composed of the "lower class es," either, but of the fashionable prom enaders of Connecticut avenue. They jostled each other rudely in their at tempts to get a good view, and talked loudly and coarsely about the women. Some of their remarks were villainous. Attendants came out of the legation building and requested them to move on. They would not. Not till a patrol wagon and six policemen arrived to disperse them did they budge an inch. Oh, yes! Let us send 6ome missionaries to the heathen Chinese, by ail means. Two projects are on foot to shorten the time between Europe and America. One is to build a rati way from Quebec to St. Charles bay, at the eastern extremity of Labrador. In St. Charles bay is a deep harbor, as free fr»m ice in winter as the one at Halifax. From this far northern point a line of swift steamers would make regular trips to England. If the plan be feasible, it will shorten the time from Chicago to England two and three fourths days. The other plan for rapid ocean transit is to land passengers from t-hia side at Milford Haven, on the west coast of Wales, and then ship them by rail to Liverpool or elsewhere. Milford Haven would also be the point Of de barkation. y Little by little etectricity is coming Into its kingdom as the universal motive power. In Europe two farmers have succeeded in working a threshing ma chine by electricity transmitted from a motor 1,000 yards away. It is said now that P. S. Bates, of York, Pa., has in vented an electric motor that excels any yet discovered. It is claimed that, once started, Bates' motor will work 100,000 hours without requiring attention. The New York Times remarks that the sultan is really a person of considerable influence in Turkey.

Muller Post No. 1, G. A. R., Stillwater, has become possessed of a relic of the late war, being no less than a list of the guard mount at Libby prison in 1864.
