Dktuoit Free Tress: What is wanted
is not so much a man of srxcial views of
one kind or another on the tariff as one
who will bring the house back, so far as a
presiding officer can, to the path from
which the late speaker diverted it and
secure tbe orderly dispatch of business,
without assuming unprecedented and ty
rannical powers. The first choice of the
Free Press on these grounds would be,
as we stated long since, Congressman

bordering on the Volga the people are
keeping themselves alive by eating bark
of trees. This awful state of things is
aggravated by the blundering method of
the Russian administration. For in
stance, a few weeks before the issue of
the ukase absolutely forbidding the ex
portation of cereals the railway com
panies were ordered to allow none of
their cars to be used for tbe transport of

upon this order stopped the transport f

actually rotting in tbe Frovince of Odessa,

criminal stupidity of tbe officials.
Alkda Democrat. Oae of Aledo's
good citizens has a brother in England
whose business is manufacturing gl.-.ves.
This brother in England, whose beart is
filled with brotherly affection, recently
determined to mail to his brother here
two pairs of gloves as presents to tbe two
little daughters of our townsman. Well,
the gloycs reached New York all right,
and last week came, a notification from
the treasury department at Washington
that the gloves were dutiable and were
held until tbe duty on them, 75 cents,
should be paid that on tbe receipt of
that amount tbe gloves would be fort
warded. Our townsman straightway re
mitted the 75 cents, and the gloves have
since been received. And this happen-
ing right here in Aledo, where tbe Rec

which one reads every week tbat it is not
tbe American consumer, but the for

Hume KfTerts iT-he Tariff.
The carpet manufacturers of Massa
chusetts are experiencing too much Mo
Kinleyism. After the enactment of the
VcKinley bill they made a radical ad
vance in prices, so radical, in fact, tbat
they advanced them bey or d tbe means of
people who wanted carpets to purchase.
The result was that tbe decreased demand
left a large stock on their hands. Tbe
aupply was too great for tbe demand at
tbe higher figures, and tben a scramble
commenced to close out the stocks they
held. The result wss that tbe whole pro
tected fabric took a tumble down about
the ears of the'men who Lad combined
to put it up. As one of them stated
they "didn't combine to make prices
lower," but the inducement for plun
der offered by McEinley wus so strong
tbat they couldn' await the cheapening
process of invention to avail them
selyes of the tariff tax and overstepped
themselves. Demoralizitin resulted .
The tariff is always a tax, but it fails
to benefit tbe man whose goods are pro
tected .until the consumer consumes. If
the consumer finds it impossible to con
sume by reason of advanced prices tbat
w place the article beyond bis ability to
purchase, he suffers. Be is to that extent
deprived of a useful article, and the man
ufacturer of tbat article fails to profit by
the tax. He only profits so long as v the
traffic is taxed to its full limit to bear it.
When taxed beyond that point it means
demoralization to his business, as was
the case with tbe carpet manufacturer.
However, the manufacturer eventually
cell the benefit of tbe tax. The process
Is slow, but it is sure.

MY FRIEND SLAUGHTER.
It was when I was an office clerk.
Eve -jr day, from 10 to 4, I was volun
tary prisoner in a weary bureau hunjr with
yellow portfolios and reeking with the
sickening cnlors of old papers. There I
luiich:d on Italian cheese and potatoes
that cooked in the open mouthed stove;
there f read the newspapers, even the ad
vertisements; rhymed sorry verses, and
there I even transacted affairs of state, in
order, at the end of tbe month, to set hold
of a mm of money which just kept me
from t ying of hunger.
One of my companions in captivity I re
His name was Achilles Slanghter, and
certainly from his ferocious aspect and nis
great height he was worthy of the name.
Slaughter was a devil of a fellow about
forty years old. JIo had neither great
breadth of chest or shoulders, but he
dressed himself as if he had. He wore a
wide I rimmed felt hat, jackets ample and
short; capacious, checked trousers and red
cravat 4 under a turn down collar. He had
a full iieurd, bushy hair then a little gray
and he was very proud of his hairy
The only affectation of Slaughter for
he wa the sveetest and liest of companions
was iiis pretension to an athletic consti
tution, of possessing the biceps of a Disco
bolus, and, as he himself phrased it, of int
really knowing his own strength, lie
never made the slightest gesture, even in
the e:ercise of his peaceful profession,
which was not. intended to convince who
ever wis standing by of his prodigious
vigor. When he had to takedown a ort
folio, 'ven if it was almost empty, he
walked tow ard the shelf with the ponder
ous st ;p of a porter, seized the portfolio
with a tight grip, arm extended, and car
ried it to t iie nearest table, with raised
shoulders and a frowning brow worthy cf
the Ciolnnian Milo. 11" carried this so
far tlint he never raised the lightest object
except in tin; same manner. Once, when
he was carrying out a basket of old papers,
I saw I im extend his left arm horizontally,
as if to balance the mighty burden.
I must say that his strength inspired nie
with g -eat respect; nor was the conversa
tion of Slaughter of a nature to lessen the
admin tion I felt for him.
Abwe all. Monday morning, ho could
scarcely wait to tell me of his deeds of valor,
his fe-tsof strength. After having hung
up his hat, his coat and his waistcoat, and J,
Having unmittonetl Ins snirt collar and
cuffs, in order to hint at his fierv, inflam
mable temperament, he would plunge his
hands n his pockets and, seated near me in
anatti ude superb in its cool assurance,
would begin a recital in t his style:
"My dear fellow! Such a Sunday! Ver
ily the -e was no sort of fatigue that I did
not encounter. Fancy this. Yesterday wr.s
the rejatta at Joinville-le-Pont. At 6
o'clock in the morning rendezvous at
Ilercy, 'feign of the Ship,' for the crew of
'the Marsouin.' Already such a sun! A
glass o' while wine; jump into our suits of
tiieot, cotton trousers; seize an oar. Lav
hold mw! One two three. We are at
Joinville. Tiiere a bat h before breakfast.
Ilein! Quick, some trunks, a lean over
board, now the shell. When I hail taken
my tu -n I h id the -appetite of a demon.
Good. I laid hold of the boat with one
iiand, end saidTo the coxswain. 'Cbarpen-
tier.hand me a little ham.' One, two, three
mouth: uls; I had nearly devoured It.
'Charp.-ntier, pass me a flask of brandy.'
Two e-vallows and it was drained. Now
some n ore measures for digestion."
Thus the description continued, daz
It wa the hour for the regatta. It wns
noon; the sun streamed down. The canoes
placed themselves in line in the river.
sparkling with sunlieanis and in front of a
tent g ly with fluttering pennons. One
saw on the bank the mayor in his scarf,
the pol ce in their yellow shoulder belts, a
swarm of summer toilets, of open um
brellas and straw hats, l'outn! Off goes
the roc ict; it is the signal. The Marsouin
shoots by like an arrow, wins offhand
and carries nway the prize.
Fatigued? not a bit. Round the tower
at Mane and ret urn to dinner at Creteil.
The night comes on cool Iu the shadowy
arbor tiie lighted pipes show like constel
lations At the end of dessert, served
here, there, where you will, the sound of
the cornet at the ball at Willis's. In place
for the quadrille! But hold! a rival crew,
vanquished that very morning, had se
cured til the pretty laundresses.- To the
rescue! Now for broken teeth, black eyes,
broken bones, blows on head, below the
belt iu a word, a whole poem of bodily
enthus asm, of brawling joy, of overflow
ing health, not to speak of the return at
midnight, of crowded stations, of women
hoisted into the cars, of frieuds separated
and calling to one another from one end of
the tra n to the other, and the horns of the
guard on the top.
Paint ul as it is to avow it, I must confess
that m 7 admiration of Slaughter was tem
pered vit h regret and bitterness. Perhaps
there was it: it c-veu something of envy.
Hut ne.-er did the recital of his most mar
velous exploit awaken iu me the least
suspicim of incredulity, and Achilles
Slaughter early found a place in my mind
1 et wee l heroes and demigods, between Ro
land ai d I'irithous.
At t lis same time I wandered much
j-.bout the suburbs, spending my idle sum
mer evenings in solitary walks in these far
off reg ons, as unknown to the Parisiau of
the boi levard as the country of the Cari
bees, aiid of which 1 hope later to celebrate
in verso its melancholy charm.
One hot and dusty evening iu July, just
ns the gas jets were beginning to shine
througa the twilight mists, I returned,
wnlkin? slowly from the outskirts of Vau
girard. I chose one of the long and weary
streets of the Faubourg, framed in by
houses of unequal height, where the con
cierges sit iu the doorway in shirt sleeves
nnd short gowns, fancying they are taking
the air. At long distances a mason, white
with plaster, passes by; a policeman or a
child w ith n loaf of bread longer than it
self, or, perhaps, a youug girl hurrying
along, n bonnet and waterproof, with a
leather bag on her arm, and every quart ur
of an jour a half empty omnibus return
ing to the station to tbe dull trot of its
Walt lng in tbe middle of the street, for
tne asphalt footpath was as yet nn ut
known luxury in these parts, I wandered
along in tbe street tasting the small bat
sweet joys of the saunterer. Sometimes I
stopped before an empty lot, peering
through the decaying fence to see in the
greenish sky the afterglow fade behind
the black silhouette of some tall factory
chimney. Then sometimes a glance of
the eye would reveal through an open win
dow a picturesque and familiar interior;
here a fine buxom laundress holding her
iron up to her cheek, and there some work
men at table in a wineshop; before them
an old street singer, with long gray locks,
his voice quaveringon the word "Liberty,'"
and accompanying himself on a guitar the
color of greasy soup C'hardins, Van Os
Suddenly I stopped. Ort& of these do
mestic interiors in an instant won my at
tentionby its charming air of simplicity
She was so happy and contented in her
little faded parlor, tiiis good old lady in
her black dress and widow's cap, seated in
the depths of an easy chair covered with
greenish Utrecht velvet, her hands peacea
bly clasped across her knees. Everything
around her was old and modest, and
seemed to lie preserved, less through dis
creet economy than from its sacredness as
a souvenir; doubtless of her honeymoon,
passed with tiie gentleman in the coat a la
Uoethe, the flowered waistcoat nnd com
plexion a little browned by time, whose
oval pastel adorned the wall.
The two lights on the mantel were suffi
cient to permit me to distinguish the old
bits of furniture in the room the clock,
mounted on a painted fish carved out of
marble; the upright piano of forgotten
form, on which young women, in mutton
leg sleeves and hair a la Greek, used to play
airs that were doubtless from Romiigne.-d.
I was conlident that a child, an only one
nnd well ln-loved, had filially remained un
married to care tenderly for the old widow.
It was she who had so carefully seated the
old mother, who had put the cushion un
der her feet, who had wheeled near her
this little marquetry table and placed on
it that salver and those two cups; I wailed
to see her come in, bringing the evening
coffee this daughter, sweet and calm, who
would be dressed iu mourning like the old
lady, and who would greatly resemble her.
Absorbed in the enjoyment of a scene so
sympathet ic and iu the pleasure of imagin
ing this humble poem, 1 was standing bo
fore the o(en window, conlident I woul.l
not lie observed iu the dark street, when 1
saw a door epen in the back of the old
fashioned room and suddenly appear oh,
how far from my thought! my companion,
Slanghter himself, the hero of all the tilts
on the river and of numerous struggling;
As-.ift doubt crossed my mind. I felt
that 1 was on the point of discovering a
It was he, sure enough! His terrible
hairy hand held a little silver coffee pot;
lie was accompanied by a poodle which
played around his legs a brave and classic
poodle, the poodle of the blind men who
play clarionets, the poodle of the "Con
voi des Pauvre" of Vigneron. the noodle
shaved like a lion, with cuffs of hair on his
lour legs and a mustache as large as that
of a stage general.
"Mamma," said 'the giant, in a voice in
effably sweet, "here is your coifee. I think
you will hud it very nice this evening.
The water had thoroughly boiled, and 1
poured it drop by drop."
"Thanks," answered the old lady, roll
ing her easy chair toward the table with
the movement of enfeebled old age.
1 hanks, my little Achilles. Your dear
papa often told me I had no rival in mak
ing coffee. He was so indulgent, so good:
poor, excellent man. But I am beginning
to think that you make it still better
At this moment, as Slaughter poured
out the hot coffee, delicately as a young
girl thinking about getting married. the
dog by his discovery of the sugar bowl
placed his two fore paws on bis mistress'
"Hown, Medor!" she cried with indigna
tion. Did you ever sec such a provoking
dog! Come, sir, yon know very well that
your master never forgets to give you the
bottom of t he cup. lie quiet a moment if
you can. By tbe way," she turned to her
son, "you have taken this poor creature
out to walk to-day."
'Certainly, mamma," ho answered in a
voice almost infantile. "When I went to
the dairy for the morning's milk I put Me-
uor s leader and collar on and took him
with me. And he feels now ouitecomfort-
able. Don't fear, mamma, he's all right."
Beassured on the important point of the
dog's health, the good lady drank her
cotlee with the air of an epicure, watebed
with inexpressible tenderness br both her
son and the poodla.
It wus needless to hear and seo further.
I knew already what sort of family life
peaceful, narrow, pure, resigned my
friend Slaughter hid under bis fauciful
bravado. But the view that chance had
given me was at the same time so humor
ous and so touching t hat I could not resist
the pleasure of enjoying it a few minutes,
and this indiscretion was sufficient for ma
to learn the real truth.
Yes, this type of a vulgar man about
town, which seemed to have escaped out
of one of Paul de Kock's novels, this des
pot of wine shops and public houses per
formed simply, courageously, in this poor
home in t he outskirts of the town, the sub
lime duties of a sister of charity. This
dashing oarsman had made no longer voy
ages than the journey to mass or vespers
on Sunday with his mother. This profes
sor of billiards could only play bezique,
this breaker in of bulldogs was enslaved
by a poodle. This Ralph Royster Doyster
was an Antigone.
The next morning when I went to tbe
office I nsked Slaughter how be had spent
his evening. Without the least hesitation
he spun for me the story of a bloody affair
which took place at 2 o'clock that morn
ing in the Boulevard d'Kufer, when he had
knocked down, with one blow of the list
and his thumb passed through his key ring,
one of the dangerous prowlers around tne
outskirts of Paris.
I listened with an ironical smile, and I
meant to confuse .him; but, remembering
how praiseworthy is goodness which hides
itself, eveu if it has a funny side, I struck
him in friendly fashion on the shoulder
and said to him, meaning it too:
