Tbe Peoria Trarueript in one of the
lending republican papers in the BUte
and it now urges tbe republicaa party te
get to work ind redeem itself by adhering
closely and strongly to the McKinley bill
for tbe reason that it has not been suffi
ciently tried and that at the end of two
years people will understand it better and
so on. It also urges the passsafte of the
force bill, saying that it is indeed one
tbat it should become a law and much
more to the same effect.
As tbe republican parly just now Is
between tho deril and the deep sea it is
difficult to say what action it will take.
Neither is it surprising to learn that its
readers are in a quandary. They are un
decided whether to proceed on tbe line
marked out In the last session tegardiog
the McKinley bill and the force bill, acd
some other matters, or reverse the whole
business and adopt a policy more in keep

be said in the senntr:
A system of national taxes which rests
the whole burden of taxation on con
sumption and not one cent on property
or income Is intrinsically unjust. While
the expenses of the national Koverntrent
are largely canned by tho protection of
property it is but ritfht to require proper
ty to contribute to their payment. It will
Dot do to say that each person consumes
lu proportion to bis means. Ibis is not
true. Every one must see that the con
sumption of the rich does not bear tbe
same relation to the consumption of tbe
poor as tbe income of the one does to the
wages of the oilier. As wealth accumu
lates this liijuftice in the fundamental
basis of our system will he felt and forced
upon the attention of congress.
And yet be was either wrong then or
wrong later, when be voted for tbe Mc
Einley bill. Everybody knows he did
not believe in the present tariff measure,
but stultified himself because it was
fathered by bis own party. In tbat act
of his Sherman showed that he was lack
ing in one of tbe elements of greatness.
He could rise above the party wish. He
said at the time be voted that be hoped
the mill owners would not take advan
tage of the great privilege that was grant
ed them, or that if they did he would be
the first that would oppose them. He
g&ve the lamb into tbe jiwa of tbe lion
and warned the ferocious beast that if it
put a tooth in the helpless creature that
he would protest against it.
The principle of "up and al'em,"voiced
by tbe Trantcript, will accomplish noth
ing. To bluster and browbeat and show
fight would be a repetition of the tactics
of the fallen Reed. The people cannot
be fooled by noise and rosy-colored
promises. So that every thing points to
this: That tbe democrats will hold the
poaitiou they have won for some years to
come. It is a party tbat stands nearest
to the people, and uuless it commit some
grave blunder it may be certain of con
tinued political success for a good .term
of years at least. In this connection tbe
San Francisco Examiner says:
Experience shows, therefore, that when
the democrats sweep tbe country at tbe
congressional elections it takes at least
six years to dislodge them. In tbe pres
ent instance It is likely to take longer.
Both in 1874 and 1882 tbe democratic
victories were due to the dissatisfaction
of the republicans with tbeir part v. They
were therefore in their nature temporary.
Bi't this year tbe triumph is due to the
education of tbe people in democratic
principles an education tbat is constant
ly being extended. A majority of tbe
people have deliberately accepted tbe
democratic doctrine of tariff reform and
economical government. Wbat hope
have tbe republican politicians tbat tbey
can ever win them back?
The Keokuk Gate City is a good repub
lican paper, but it can understand never
the leas who pays tbe tax. It can also
understand that there is no particular ne
cessity of the west paying the bills of the
east. It says:
We guess the republicans don't much
Deed to strain themselves to keep up a
protective tariff for the benefit of the
manufacturing states. Manufacturing
Massachusetts, and Connecticut, and
Rho !e Island, and New York, and New
Jersey, and Pennsylvania, and Illinois
hare voted for tbe democracy and against
the tariff. Those states have nearly all
tbe manufactories of tbe United States.
Tbe people of atates like Iowa need not
trouble themselves any more to give pro
tection at their own expense to tbese
manufacturing states who get all the ben
efits of It and yet vote that they don't
TqK republicans should extract a great
deal of comfort from tbeir two leading
papers, the Chicago Tribune, which is
daily denouncing the McKinley bill, and
the St. Louis Globe-Democrat, which
throws up its bands and acknowledges
the situation. Tbe latter says:
Senator Ingalls is able to quote a pas
sage of scripture In support of tbe theory
that be will be re-elected, notwithstand
ing tbe majority against him. Tbe bi
ble, by the way, is always a source of
encouragement to republicans when they
fall Into the bands of tba Philistines.
When tbe Fifty-second congress meets
an effort should be made to amend the
constitution with regard to tbe election of
United States senators. Tbe people are
fully ready for the change and they de
sire that this important matter should be
placed in their own hands and not in the
bands of an irresponsible body.

the Indian trouble, say: "An Indian up

A telegram from Bismarck, N. D., says:
"Trouble is feared from the Indiaus at
Standing Rock agency, and for the first
time In bis life Muj. McLaughlin, the
agent, finds himself unable to govern
them. Sitting Bull and others have toid
the agent frankly that they have no fur

believe it only a question of a short time
when the whites will disappear from the

the agency arrived in Mandan with in
formation that an uprising of the Indi

"It was also learned that Indians have
been buying ammunition for some time

Tbey have lately disposed of all their

PARNELL AND MRS. O'SHEA.
The Jary Declare Them Guilty Bynop
sia of the Testimony A Suggested
Marriage The Kewe & Ireland.
Losdos, Nov. 18. Tire celebrated
O'Shea-Parnell case came to an end yes
terday, us was inevitable, with a Vdrdict
in favor of Capt O'Shea. As s'aieJ yes
terday in these dispatches, tbe refusal of
Parnell or bis paramour to put up any
defense was prima facie evidence of their
guilt, and the countercharge that the
prosecution paid most attention to was
that of connivance on tha part of O'Sbea.
The testimony given yesterday was most
ly by servants and was corroborative of
tbat given Saturday. All swore to the
oare taken by Mrs. O'Shea and Parnell to
prevent Capt. OShea having reason to
suspect tbe troth. The servants were
told the reason Parnell and the -woman
were always-locked in together when he
was visiting ber waa that there wore meat-
I bers of secret societies looking for Par-
nell, and tbe servants we:-e . instructed
never to mention to O'obe that Pamell
had been visiting his wifo. The testi
mony in general brought out the disguise
and secrecy with which the t wo mat.
Tbe Counter Charge of Adultery.
The other charge of Mrs. O'Sbea that
ber husband bad committed adultery
with her own sister, Mrs. Steele, was met
only by the denial of the latter nnder
oath. O'Sbea took the stand again and
swore tbat tbe reason be bad associated
with Parnell after challenging hira to
fight a duel in the early part of the liaison
was that be had become convinced at tbat
time that his suspicions wera unfounded.
Justice Butt in summing np the evidence
asked what waa the necessity of tbe
guilty pair resorting to so much secrecy
and disguise if O'Sbea connived at tbeir
relations. The jury took little time in
making np tbeir verdict that Parnell and
Mrs. O'Sbea had been guilty of adultery
and that the saptain had not connived
Will rarnell Marry the Woman?
The latest report current in connection
with the scandal is that Parnell will
marry Mrs. O'Sbea as soon as her hus
band ia clear of her. Owing to the delays
of the British divorce system about seven
months wdl pass before tbe marriage can
take place. Gen. Sir Evelyn Wood, who,
although a near relative, ia not on the
beat of terms with Mrs. O'Shea, bas
openly stared that, as a man of honor,
Parnell could lake but one step adequate
to make tbe public condone his miscon
duct, and that was to marry Mrs. O'Shea.
It is thought that Parnell, unless there Is
something iu tbe story of another mar
riage, will not be averse to t'ii. as he is
believed to be deeply attached to Mrs.
O'Sbea, who retains much of her youth
The Irish Refuse to Believe.
The Dublin correspondents, state that
great excitement reigns in tho city over
the revelations, and that bodies of men
gather in the afreets discussing the case,
a nd threatening to mob any one who ex
presses a belief in Parnell's guilt. At
Tipperary a profound sensttion was
caused by tbe news, to which the police,
apparently acting under instructions, are
giving the utmost publicity.
Davitt and the other Irish leaders now
in Ixmdon, refuse to enter into any discus
sion of the results of the case.
PartMly on Romeo nnd Juliet.
A sheet has been circulating in London
containing a caricature of Parnell in the
so-called "balcony scene," when he
jumped off a balcony to escape Capt.
O'Shea, who had unexpectedly arrived
home while Parnell was with Mrs. O'Shea.
Accompanying it is a parody on the bal
cony scene in Romeo and Juliet, with
Parnell as the Romeo and Mrs O'Sbea as
tbe Juliet. The sheet is having a large
Morality in Pnblie Men.
London, Xov. 18 In discussing the
question whether in view of the O'Sbea
suit Parnell should remain at the head of
the Irish party Lilieral papers, such as the
Pall Mall Gaz-tte. have declared that
there was no reason why he should not,
and cited the case of Lord Nelson and
Lady Hamilton, alleging that -he hero of
Trafalgar did not lose political prestige
although living in open adultery with the
woman. The Tories question t,e correct
ness of this, tbe contrary being, it is
averred, the historical fact; tiiat while
Nelson's wonderful talents as a naval
commander made his services indispensa
ble to bis country, he was socially and in
a great decree politically injured by his

pointed out that, public sentiment is
more rigorous against such offences now
than iu tbe days of Nelson.

"Johnny" Had His Knife.
For a canse she could never understand

A Tale of Woeful Woo.
"Tbe cuts on my nose and lips," she
said, "were made by the point of the
knife during tbe struggle. The scratch
in my band was made by the hand le of

tbat Mr. Rogers intended to murder me.

of my catching a glimpse of the weapon

How Rog r Treated RterL
Miss Palmer then told how Mr. Rogers
had driven all ber friends from her by
