iTis raid that George Jacob Schwein
forth, the bogus Christ, contemplates
removing bis heaven to Texas. If George
Jacob attempts some of his alienating
practices down in that territory he will
think there is no such place either on
earth or above it as heaven. He will be
more apt to have an idea of what the

The Mississippi river is proving
treacherous at Memphis, which is in
danger of becoming an inland city. This
would be a severe blow to Memphis and
all the towns along the lower Mississippi,
but the river towns above St. Louis have
come to be quite independent of the
river. The contention that it regulates
railroad rates is true with regard to
freight between local points north or
south along the river. Railroad tariffs
between these points eo up when navi
gation closes. But it has come to be
that the river has no perceptible 1 fCcct
on through tariffs between Mississippi
river points and the principal cities east
or west. Competition between trunk
lines eatt and west, the Dubuque Tele
graph holds, regulates these rates now
quite independent of the river, and the
railroads are operated with such ecoLotny
that they can afford to compete with the

When the Mills tariff bill was on final
passage in the bouse, after it bad been
recklessly denounced as a free trade
measure, Enute Nelson, confessedly the
ablest Republican in congress from the
northwest, broke from the high tax party
traces, made an unanswerable argument
in favor of tariff reform, and voted for
On Thursday the republicans of Min

which are surging upon them, they nom
inated Knute Nelson for governor by a
rising and unanimous vote, and cheered
to the echo the nomination of what the
party leaders would call the great free
trader of the northwest.
The nomination of Nelson for governor
by the republicans of Minnesota is a
public proclamation that tariff reform
has shattered the ranks of the high
tariff tax party in the west, acd
northwest, and it is not disguised that be
was chosen to lead the party because he
is not a protectionist and because he
voted for the Mills bill. Iodeed the
McKinley tariff, with its oppressive taxes
on the necessaries of industry and of
life, is rejected and spit upon Ly most
republicans ia the west, and the only
safety to the party is in calling out the
so-called free traders of the party as
candidates to .save the monopoly tax
republicans from annihilation
Do not manufacturers and industrial
people see the certain inevitable drift of
the whole west to break down even
incidental protection, unless all monop
oly and needless taxation features of our
tariff laws shall be abandoned? When
the republicans of Minnesota must nomi
nate what the party leaders call a free
trader to save the party, what does it

Mr. Blaine has announced, through the
medium of his faithful Joe MaDley, his
intention of taking the stump for Brother
Harrison. The dates or the platforms on
which the ex-secretary will speak are not
announced, but we assume that Mr.
Blaine will deliver at least half a dozen
speeches; say one in New England, one
or more in New York and the rest in the
great cia-AUeghanian region wherein are
found the bulk of American patriotism,
the majority of American votes and the
most interesting instances of doubt in
respect of the result in November.
More power to James G Blaine's facile
tongu"! He is the most brilliant living
American, the best stump speaker, the
most forceful organ of his political
school, whether it be for right or whether
it be for wrong. His appearance on the
stump will give zest to a campaign
which, to say truth, promises to be inor
dinately dull, and will afford a fine
instance of political magnanimity which
we hope, but do not believe, Brother
Bon will appreciate.
An Undisputed Test of Merit
A medicine that has been a household
remedy for over 50 ears and used in that
time by more than 160,000.000 persons
must have great merit. Much a medicine

demonstrates the value of these pills bet

with local applications, as they cannot
reach the seat of the disease. Catarrh is
a blood or constitutional disease, and in
order to cure it you have to take internal
remedies. Hall's Catarrh cure is taken
internally, and acts directly on the blood
and mucous surfaces. Hall's Catarrh
Cure is no quack medicine. It was pre
scribed by one of the best physicians in
this country for years; and is a regular
prescription. It is composed of the best
tonics known, combined with the best
blood purifiers, acting directly on the

catarrh. Bend for testimonials free.

Above the Constitution.
There ia no government in the civilized
world, except possibly Russia, which is
not to some extent under the domination
of popular opinion. The present emperor
of Germnny is the most virile monarch in
Europe, but he dare not oppose too griev
ously t he will of his subjects. If there is
any written instrument of Rovernment
powerful beyond all other laws, it is our
own constitution, for it is the rule of ac
tion prescribed by the people for the guid
ance and control of their agents. But the
history of the federal power shows that
there is a power above the constitution,
and that is the power of popular opinion.
There have often been times when the con
stitution has not stood in the way of the
Even the supreme court will change its
mind if the people are persistent. It lms
not been always necessary for popular
opinion to demand the breaking or flexion
of the constitution; it is only necessary
that it should approve what has lwn done.
The purchases of Ixmisi.-m.-i and Alaska,
and the many instances of executive and
legislative acts during the war of the re
bellion that were clearly beyond the con
stitutional grants of power, are cases in
point which will occur to any one who is
at all familiar with our constitutional his
tory. Henry Loomis Xelson in Harper's.
Lifts Heavy Pianos.
Edward T. Berry has been a piano mover
in this city continuously throughout the
seventeen years past. Berry is a jig man,
standing six feet, stocking clad, nail
weighing 260 pounds. He is so well pro
portioned aa not to rpmar so heavy. His
daily work is to move front fifteen to
twenty pianos up and down ptairs, some
times several flights. Berry manages one
end of the piano, while two men can barely
handle the other.
The strong man also takes the lower end
in going up stairways, often being coi.i
pelled to sustain the whole weight of in
struments of the "grand" form, which
weigh between 1,200 and 1,500 pounds. lie
estimates his daily lifts of dead weight to
be fifty, and the weight lifted each time to
average 1,000 pounds. As the weights
must he sustained for a length of time, the
feat becomes the more remarkable. San
The Young American.
A boy is an odd piece of furniture, but
he is the ground and chief ingredient of
the man. Delude not yourself with the
belief t hat the boy is not all he pretends
to be, for he is a great deal more. He is
an incomprehensible fellow to any one but
another boy, and leoause he will presently
grow into the awkward between-hay-and-grass
period that separates boyhood from
manhood, and to a lumbering idiot then,
dou't signify that he is an idiot now. He
never is. But his chrysalis state fetters
him and makes him seem like one some
times. The boy is all right. Bradford Era.
Somebody Sets a Trap in Every

Krauze's German Oil, of much repute in
Germany, where it has been in use fcr
many years, is the property of Norman
Licbty in the United States. Envious
competitors without any brains or enter

the public, and are offering vile and
worthless imitations, under a similar
name and of a similar style. The public
are cautioned against buying this medi

counterfeit. For sale by Hartz & Bahn
