The destruction of Hint on all forms of property eaeept those investments which yield a fixed return In money. James O. Blaine. (Congressional Keeord, pages 80 to fi, 1878.1 Mayob Knox is about as much for the levee as he was for Larlcin. Mayob Knox would make an ad mirable Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. That was a tegular Kinyon trick Mayor Knox worked on would-be policeman, Larkin. We see no particular reason why Mr. Larkin should entertain a kindly reeling toward Mr. Knox. These be troublesome times for T. Hanna Thomas, generalissimo of the Hock Island republican forces. Matok Knox has grown so vacil- 1 ttlnj; tbat be will not even sustain himself when it comes to a show down. This is a campaign when to a large percentage of laboring men, doty and conviction are two different things. The Union has really attempted to explain Mayor Knox's attitude in re pudiating his own appointment. Now witn all its faults the Union should have known better than to undertake that. Afteb all, it is difficult to compre hend just what there is to attract men to Canton, unless it is the cen tral figure in what is to be another example of that time honored saving about man proposing and God dis posing. The brotherhood of man seems to ba well established during the cam paign. Bob Ingersoll, the infidel. many of the ministers all over the country, and lierr Most, the anar chist, are all pulling together in the same political team. This is in part tne uod and morality party of 1896 Some of the Rock Island and Mo line factories are Evincing a remark ably generous spirit toward their men as regards the trip to Canton this week, and are exceedingly anx ious that thev should go. If some ot these considerate factories would raic e the wages of their men and then when it is necessary give them a day off without docking them, there are not many ot them who would ask for any excursion trips. The Central City Stove works ot Newark, O., has posted a notioe at their factory announcing that in the event of Bryan's election they will at once increase wages 10 per cent. Here is a firm which looks at the po litical situation ' in a business-like manner. It realizes that in the gen eral wave of prosperity which is ex pected to sweep over this country in case Bryan is successful, it will reao some or the benefits, and will therefore b) in a position to more fully recompense its employes. Instead of simply refusing to sup port Henry L. Hem, the colored voters of Illinois should repudiate the entire republican ticket. Their opposition to Herts is well founded and was thoroughly known to the machine leaders prior to . the state convention, but, nevertheless, their wishes were disregarded in the belief that a "yellow dog" conld be elected oa the republican ticket this year. Now. the Tanner-Herts crowd ia try lag to pacify the colored people, bnt if the latter consult their self-respect they will teach the republican bosses a lesson they will not soon forget. To show what phases the repobli Sta gold bo j system of coercion and Intimidation assumss when applied to salesmen and commercial travel ers, a copy of a letter written by an eastern clothing house to one of its Chicago salesman haa been mrnisnea the national democratic committee. The name of the house and that of the salesman cannot he made public for obvious reasons. The letter read as follows: "Dear Sir: We have re ceived two letters from yonr custo mers wno say mat you are talking aironfflv for silver. As von know. we buy a large amount of oar cor duroys in Kngiand, and they now make all our invoices payable in gold. The election of Bryan would mean the loss of many thousands of dollars to onr nrm, and we must ex. pect that any one in our employ will do all in their power to promote i-s Desi interests. " It is a matter of fact that William McKinley has gone back on his prin ciples in order to stand on the gold standard platform. Here is a part of a letter tbat he wrote once on a time to E. S. Perkins, ot Weymouth, Ohio: I have always been in favor of the free and unlimited coinage of the silver product of the United States and have so voted on at least two occasions during the time I have been in public life. Too may re- mem oer as indicating my position on this subject that I voted to pass the silver bill in the Forty-tilth and Forty-sixth congresses over the veto of President Hayes." McKinley has never had the least knowledge of any great issue except protection. He has been a wobbler and a dema gogue on everything else. He U not a man who ought to be placed in the presidential chair. OHIO LOST TO M'KINLEY. So Says Berksh Wilkins, nf the Wash In s toa Feat. The republican leaders and their subsidized press have lately been making extravagant claims regard ing McKinley's chances of carrying neuraska. ane nest vt alter wen- man could figure out the situa tion for the Times-Herald, of Chi cago. McKinley's special organ, a'ter a caret u I survey of the field, was that the plurality wouldn't be 5.000 either way, with the chances of course, favoring McKinley. Mr. Wellman was forced to admit, how ever, that if Bryan made a fsw speeches at the close ot the cam paign, the latter would carry the state, as it is Mr. Bryan a inten tion to do this very thing, it may be Eat down as reasonably certain that is own state will cast its electoral vote for him. But how about Ohio, the home of the apostle ot prohibitory tariff leg islation and financial acrobatic per former? No less an authority than Ileriah Wilkins, proprietor ot the Washington Post, an independent paper, gives tne iowowiog as bis un biased opinion concerning Ohio: "A careful poll of the state, made to ascertain the true situation, gives Bryan the state by 35.000 majority." ii tne repuoncaos can take anv comfort from the situation in the state of their nominee for president, they are welcome to it. Mr. Wilkins further said that in formation from his old district in Ohio, from the most reliable sources. led him to believe that Bryan will u .... a oaa - : ; . . i . itduv uiajurity mere, in me last election the republican majority was 800. He received a letter from one of the leading railroad mechan ics at Cleveland, saying that Cleve land wouio give rvan 15,000 major ity. At the last election Cleveland went republican by 6,000. Mr. Con ger, formerly chairman of the re publican committee, and at one time a member of the republican national cum mi nee, aroppeo into Mr. Wil kins oflioe a few davs arro and told him that he had apprised Mr. Hanna tost v.ieveiano was lost to the re publican party.

A "solar day" is measured by the ro tation of the earth upon its axis, and is of different lengths, owing to the ellin- ticity of the earth's orbit and other causes; but a "mean solar day" is 24 hours long, as reckoned by the time pieces. An astronomical day commences at noon and is counted from the tirxt to the twenty-fourth hour. A "civil day" commences at midnight and is tx muted from the first to the twelfth hour, and then again commence with 1 and fin ished with 12. A "nautical day" is reckoned the same as the "civil dav. only that the recknuing is begun at noon instead of at midnight. A "calendar month" varies from 28 to 31 lays. A "mean lunar month" is 2 days, 12 hours, 44 minutes, 21?, sec onds. A "year" is divided into 865 days.
