Bloom, ington Bulletin. Modern municipal methods are beautifully exemplified in some eases. In a small town in Sonth Dakota the three saloons are owned, controlled and personally managed by the mayor, marshal and clork respectively, and citizens not holding oflloe are not encouraged to enter thi s branch of trade. The annual readjustment of sala ries of presidential postoffices shows In the list for Illinois that there are few where increases are made In proportion to those where there are reductions. Rock Island as said before Rets an advance of from 12,700 to 12,800. The nearest town to us in which a radical change is made is our friend Fulton, where a cu from $2,000 to f 1.800 is made.

Surely Powderly la not expecting anything more. If the results of his sj eech in Rock Isl and characterized what he did else where for the republican party he ought to feel perfectly satisfied that that organization has not applied the process of ejection long ago. The newspaper fraternity of this eountry will not forget President ioKInfey's gracious and thoughtful defense of those who accompanied him on his trip to Nashville, from the snob in charge of the Vanderbilt villa in the south. When told that the representative of Vanderbilt had Insulted the newspaper men of his party and had determined to exclude them from the premises, the presi dent said that he would not set foot upon the grounds. The consequence waa that the important individual quickly altered his plans. The pres ident of the United States has shown that there is no one too great in this country to lose sight of the best friends of all men in station the newspaper boys. The republican leaders at Wash ington talk fiercely, and enact laws that have so far accomplished noth ing, and they vote the sugar trust more than its eager appetite has rer before received. The sugar trust is the one great combination of capital that depends almost whollv for profit on national legislation. Every tariff since lS'JO has been a souroe of immense gain to it. That tariff gave it raw sugar free and am ple protection against refined. The present tariff was changed in the senate by scandalous means, to put . money into the pockets of the trusts. And now the tariff which has been accepted by the republicans of the senate gives the trust more favors htn-wTer the corrupt "combine" of Cx:::rt M fcstifcti 0 -1-11.... Bar. Km Canrrft.

"What I said was addressed to Pennsylvanians, and much of it bore solely on state politics. Much as I love quietness and peace. It is not possible for me to be indifferent or silent in the present condition of affairs. Neither can I take nor give opiates. In these times, campaign speeches are ouiy empty snens, witnout ker nels. However well meaning, or whoever it is who thinks he does good by them, must be forgetting that a million of workmen and their children are hungry. The man who looks for bread in such speeches will not have mnch to eat. The public heart cannot be fired by eloquence in this way just now, for the powder of patriotism is wet with the tears of suffering unem ployed. Give me hold of somebody's hand who will do something, not talk about it month after month. To keep work for the 6,000 and more persons in my employ and turn away from the several hundred who apply daily and be.r the privilege of labor to keep te-tr wolf from the door drives me into a fever, and I must speak out. Any citizen has that right. I cannot sit on a fence with a stiff wind blowing and whistle for prosperity, the vanished bird of beautiful plumage, to come back. We ought to have a new, a better tariff: but if we cannot tret it. let ns settle down on the old one and ad just ourselves to it as best we can. II we cannot move ont of the old house, we might build a wlner to it or add another storv." (This reference to the "old house) is a dig at President McKinlev. who reminded Mr. Wanamaker in a re cent speech that "we cannot move out of the old house nntil the new one is ready.") A republican house has been in session since last December, and its riddled tariff bill still- tosses about at the other end of the capitol. i "ii to oe impatient is unpatriotic. when the delays are so protracted and seemingly unnecessary in ad justing these two great questions uppermost in the public mind, then) I must ask to be forgiven for mis counting the pulse of most of the people whom I meet. There are not a few who believe that since the war no such exigency fell upon the country as that which preceded the election of November, 1896. 'The spirit which moved the Deo. pie then is still alive. It will neith er be ignored nor dallied with. The tariff, money, economy of expendi tures must be arranged fairly and promptly ii we are to find content ment or prosperity. uatnering ourselves together on the monetary question cannot be done too soon. 1'here is no use of sending delegations to foreign na tions until we have some definite proposition to make.

A dispatch to The World from London Bays: Barney Barnato's suicide must cause wide spread ruin among small investors. They had pinned their faith to him. The big .speculators, having: had Inside knowledge of his serious condition, have either cleared out or been, manipulating; bis stock with considerable profit. Bar nato's -tragic end has convinced the pub lic here of the utter rottenness of the South African boom, which now easily takes rank as the biggest stock inflation scheme (not to say swindle) of the record reign. Bamato securities were quoted eighteen months ago at a cani tal value of 12,000.000 (tSO.OCO.OOO). but In the last six months they had fallen to aboot 3,000.000 ($15,000,000). though tney recently impro-ed on better ac counts from South Africa. Barnej Had Taken to Drink. Mrs. Joel, Barnato's sister, told The World correspondent last night, before anything was known here of the death. that friends intended to land Barney iiarnato at r'unchal for a month's rest. as his health was not yet such as to render his return to London advisable. No se cret is made of the fact that his break down was accelerated by heavy drink ing, which began when the Kaffir slump started eTen before his departure for South Africa, .which was hurried and private. His mind.shnwed signs of failing under strain eight months ago, on which account he waa sent away irom r.ngiana. There had never been any sensible improvement; in his condi tion. Sought "Solace" Too Frequently. His responsibilities weighed heavily on his mind and he sought "solace" too frequently. His naturaHy robust con stitution had been undermined by his laborious, exciting life, and symptoms or softening of the brain manifested themselves. His family and partners be came alarmed at the probable effect on his securities if this were known, as they were believed to be dependent sole. ly on his personality. So they used every effort to get him off to the Cape and place him in seclusion for a time, in the hope that he would recover. TRICKED INTO HIS LAST VOYAGE. Fnt Aboard an Outgoing- Steamer by a Knse HJi Lordly Palace. He did not want to leave London, hnt by a ruse they induced him to b on board a steamer to see a nephew off to the cape, and he was kept talking in the cabin until the ship had parted with the tender. He was thus shipped away against hi3 will. . This explains a story made much of at the time and now revived that he went the last time to South Atrica so unexnecterllv that had only the clothes he stood in. His condition became worse instead of bet ter. He made a public exhibition of In sanity at Johannesburg about ago, but it was attributed to temporary causes. His friends knew better. and a good deal of selling his securities ior a. iau nas Deen indulged In during the slump by well informed specula tors. The collapse has not been as great as was looked for. because the Beits and other big South African houses nave combined to keep up prices.
