Correspondence solicited from every township in hock isiana coonty. Monday, September 7, 1891. This is Labor day, a holiday in many of tbe states and which in a Tery few years will be, as it should be, a rational holiday. Col. Jobs S. Mosby's long residence in China has not caused him to forget how to do tbe old fashioned American knockdown-aoddrag-.out act if it is fair to judge by the newspaper reports of bow he threshed the conductor and the grip man on a cable train in San Francisco the other day. About 27 years ago Mosby was rated as one of tbe most dangerous men in this country, and the old man isn't played out yet. Senator Stanford is in the field as a presidental candidate not as the Farmer's Alliance or of the third party, but of the republican party. His candidacy will prove a Ood-send to those republicans who are badly disappointed when Alger closed up his barrel and announced him self to be for Blaine, as Senator Stanford is much tbe richer man of the two, and is more willing to pay cut money for empty compliments. As to his getting tbe nomination there is no more probability of such a thing than there is of tbe re publican convention nominating Grover Cleveland. Again the story is on the way that Blaine will shortly announce that he will under no circumstances become tbe can didate of his party next year, and that be is in favor of Harrison's renomination. This story is killed by an addition to the effect that Mr. Blaine is very atxtous to retire from public life. Yes, about as anxious as a hungry horse is to retire from a troueh of oats. Private life would be a great vexation to Mr. Blaice as life ashore is to a sailor, and in spite of all the stories which have been or may be told concerning his intentions we predict that if he is offered tbe presidential nom ination of his party he will accept it. The New York Herald says that the principle of law that a contract in re straint of marriage is against public policy and therefore void, was recently invoked in a Colorado case in which a husband sought to escape the obligation of an agreement with his divorced wife. He had bargained to give her a special sum every month after their separation as long as she should remain unmarried. He kept up tbe payments for some time and then stepped them, whereupon she sued him. His defense was that the agreement was in restraint of marriage and could not be enforced. The supreme court of the state does not take this view. "This is not,"itsays, "a contract in restraint of marriage. No obligation is imposed up on the woman not to marry. She is at liberty at at any time to marry whom and where she will. There is nothing in the sgreement wtlch in any way involves the question of morals or public policy." The tariff on sucar was repealed not in order to relieve the taxpayer, but to fasten more firmly upon the country the policy of protection. Concurrently with the ab olition of tbe sugar tax tbe average of protective duties on other necessaries of living was raised 49 to 67 per cent. Tbe tax on sugar went into the federal treas ury and helped to pay off the public debt. The added protective taxes, on the con trary, never reach the treasury. Tbey go into tbe pockets of the people who de vised tbem and who elected President Harrison in order to have them put in shape for collection . But nearly always some good comes out of evil doing. There never was a more effective object lesson to show that tariff du'.ies are taxes than has resulted from putting sugar on the free list. People who were paying seven cents a pound for granulated sugar a year ago, and who are now getting it for four and one-half cents a pound, can no longer be bamboozled into the belief that protection protects the consumer. And they will ask, aptly remarks the Bur lington Gazette, for tbe repeal of tbe duty on coal, salt, lumber, wool and other things of use and necessity, knowing that they will reap the full benefit therefrom.
