He doesn't rest his case on argu-

that silver inflation is a dead issue;
the party must try something else.
It is not clear .vlettert he wishes to
drop silver altogether, or merely
wlshes to exchange the 16 to 1 ratio
fori sume ratio nearthe. market ratio.
If lie would go, in for the ratio
32 to 1 and 100-cent silver dollar, a
great many sound money democrats
might perhaps go with him. Two
standards of value are impracticable,
but a silver dollar with a dollar's
\voith of silver in it would lbe an
honest dollar. The folly of the
silverities was in tying themselves to
an obsolete ratio. Ex-Governor
Boles published a letter last year in
which he plainly said that he wanted
a 50-cent dollar, so as to reduce the
cost of labor on his farm. A 25-cent
greenback would probably suit him
better than a 50-cent dollar.

he acknowledged it.
But Helen saw a ray of hope. The
little note had been intrusted to Wayne
late Thursday night, and he had prom-
ised to deliver it early Friday morning,
and all that day had Ellis waited eager-
ly, and nightfall came without the look-
ed for visit. Wayne came on Saturday
to convey some conventional words of
farewell from both officers, "So sur-
prised to hear of the sudden return from
California; so sorry not to have seen
them, but time was very short, mad"'--

and no one but Wayne would do. "All

later that there's been some fatal flaw

But here, on this glad June morning,
all sunshine and serenity aloft, all per-
turbation at the post, all raging river
about it, it looked as though the pro-
ceedings themselves would be delayed
and that instead of a military wedding
in the post chapel at high noon, with
everybody en grande tenue, there would
be no wedding at all, even though Will,
like a modern Leander, swam this wild
western Hellespont in search of his
bride. Far away to the east the floods
had swept their battering ram of logs
and trees and dashed it against the
bridge abutments at the railway, and,
though the Farrars were safely here and
had been for several days, Kitty's train,
that which bore her and Jack on their
westward way, had been brought up
standing long miles toward Cheyenne,
and there was no telling when the pas-
sengers could be transferred to the wait-
ing oars upon the hither shore. And so,
believing the other in waiting at the
post, bride and groom elect woke to
their wedding morn to rail at fate. It
would have been some comfort could
they have known that, though miles
apart, they were at least on the same
side of the stream that swept between
them and the altar of their hopes
And there was deep anxiety under
the roof where once again the Farrars
were installed, for the mother was pos-
sessed with the fear that Willy would
be mad enough to try to swim the
stream, and, though Fenton had had his
signalmen out forbidding any such at-
tempt, vo acknowledgment had been
received to the effect that the repeated
message was understood. Xn Indian

told no tale other than that of anxiety.
Every fieldglass at the post, when
brought to bear, revealed Farrar at 9
o'clock of his bridal morning striding
and probably swearing up and down the
bank, tugging at his tiny mustache and
sprouting beard and possibly threaten-
ing self destruction. It was a thrilling
Then, many other people seemed bur-
dened with troubles of their own. Ellis
had never recovered either strength or
spirits since the events of that Christ-
mas week, and her lovely face was thin,
and the bright, brave eyes of old were
Aihadowed with a pathetic sorrow; but
though this shadow had come into her
life another one, much harder to bear,
had been swept aside. Ever since her
lover's words had revealed to Ellis that
it was her own brother, to save whom
Malcolm Leale had periled life and lost
hia sight, the girl's eyes seemed grad-
ually to open to the utter cruelty of her
suspicions, the injustice of her treat-,
ment of Helen Daunton, the woman
whose life that very brother had well
nigh wrecked forever. In the long hours
of her convalescence she had turned to
Helen in humility that was sweet to
see, and now the love and trust between
them was something inexpressible. But
there was something even Helen could
neither explain nor justify, and that
was Jack Ormsby's conduct since her
True, Ellis had told him in their last
interview that all was at an end between
them; that he had forfeited trust, faith
and even respect and placed a barrier
between himself and her forever. She
had refused him further, audience, and
her last words to him had been full of
scorn, even of insult. But no word of
anger or resentment had escaped him,
and surely no man who deeply loved
would harbor anger now. Sobbing her
heart out, the girl had thrown herself on
Helen's breast just before their return
to Frayne and told a part of her story
until then concealed-how, in their last
interview, Ormsby had gently said that
he would vex her no more with his
pleadings, but if a time should ever
come when her eyes were opened and
when she could believe him honest and
worthy he would come at her call, and
she had humbled herself and called,
but all in vain. To Helen she had told

The Cocktail.t
The invention of that American in-
stitution' the cocktail is now credited
to the medical profession. The old doo-
tors, it seems, had a habit of treating
S certhin- diseases of the throat with a
liquid mixture applied with the tip.of
a long feather plucked from a cook's
tail. In time this liquid came to be used
as a gargle, the name of '"cocktail,"
however, still clinging to it. In the
course of further evolution the gargle
became a mixture of bitters, vermouth
and other appetizers and finally devel-
oped into the beverage so highly esteem-
ed by the patrons of American 'bars.

Value of Goat's Milk.
Thie value of goat's milk comprises
an essential element in the economy
and profit of husbandry in nearly all
European countries, but the indus-
try has not been recognized in this
country according to its just deserts.
A Florida newspaper (St. Francis
Elorida Facts) makes the following
intelligent plea for the establishment
of a goat farm:
'Who will start a Florida goat
farm? Goats are easily raised, re-
qniring little or no care, and in
Florida especially, no expensive feed-
ing. It is true, there are fewer tin
cans lying around vacant lots, bnt
although old tin cans. are supposed
to be the ideal food for goats. wee
think other and more easily digested
-provenaer may be found in dbunilant
quantities, free of cost.

Look for the facts demonstrated by ex-
perience. Thousands and thousands of
people suffering from the effects of impure
blood have been cured by Hood's Sarsa-
Hood's Pills act easily and promptly on
the liver and bowels. Cure sick headache.
Manufacturers Against the Tariff Bill.
One of the most striking indications
of the growth of sentiment against highi
protection and of a liberal sentiment
upon -tariff matters is the movement
against the pending tariff bill by the,
Manufacturers' Association of the Unit-
ed States. Mr. A. B; Farquhar, an ex-
tensive manufacturer of apiic tltural
machinery at York;,Pa., isaot tlho head
of the movement.
It is well known that in the manu-
facture of agricultural implmeniits and
machinery Americans are far in advance
of .theif competitors in any other land
and that the products of their factories
may be seen in the fields all over the
civilized world. These people need no
protection and are well able to take care
of themselves. All they ask is to have
untaxed raw material, so that they will
not be placed at a disadvantage.
A great list of other industries are
practically in the same position and de-
sire free raw material more than they
desire protection. It is also significant
that the manufacturers, in their peti-

Prices of LinenB Go Up.
When the tariff bill was about to be
framed, the Republican leaders stated
that they desired to be moderate and to
avoid anything like excessive rates. Mr.
Aldrich, when introducing the amended
measure into the senate, claimed that
his rates were generally lower than
those of the house bill. The linen
schedule, however, is a notable one of
many exceptions. In it the senate rates
are higher than those of the house and
much higher than anything ever before
Under the McKinley bill of 1890 lin-
ens were assessed 35 per cent, with a
few exceptions as high as 50 per cent
ad valorem. Under the rates proposed
by the senate a large proportion of the
goods in everyday use will be assessed
from 65 to 85 per cent and in some
oases over 100 per cent. The following
table shows some of the changes in the
cost of medium and low grade linens:
Price per yard.
New duty SFes3-' New

Colored canvas for dress lin-
ings ....................... 69 8% I0
Clothing linens .............. 16 223
Linen for butchers' aprons. 65 10t 22%
The domestic manufacturers in whose
interests these changes are supposed to
be male have stated that they do not
deserve over 50 per cent duty on lineu
goods, and oun of the principal manu-
fan.turera of liUnt- and cotton handker-
chiets in Airmria t of Aeh-.son, Harden
& Co., Passaic, N. J.) states tbat he does
nct desiro any advanco of duty on Lis
The gross injustice 4 these duties
can be appreciated when it is remem-
bered that, owing to climatic condi-
tions, good fiber flax cannot be grown
or linen manufactured suicessffully in
this country, and when it is further r?-
membered that the kind of line taxed
is the kind that is used by the poorest
classes, while a much lower duty is put
on the finer grades.

Forestalled Himself.
Overcome by the antics of the come-
dian, the gentleman in the front row
emitted cachinnations so violently that
his wig dropped to the floor, and he be-
came the focus of a thousand eyes.
His first thought was to assume a
jaunty air. "I will laugh it off," he
Then it occurred to him that that was
just what he had done, and, arising
hastily, he fled precipitately.

tiun to ine senate, acloare that their
ability to employ American labor will
be greatly impaired by the passage of
the tariff bill. "! hey ask that the Chi-
nese wall that is obstructing the foreign
trade and crippling Americau enterprise
shall be broken down.
The plea which has been used for
years by the protectionists--namely,
that protection is in the interest of
American labor-is shown by census
figures to be a sham. Of the 5,000,000
persons employed in manufacturing in
the United States it is shown in the pe-
tition that less than 200,000 are em-
ployed in occupations subject to active
foreign competition and 616,000 in
occupations subject to moderate for-
eign competition. The remainder, over
4,000,000, do not come at all in compe-
tition with foreign labor.
It is very plain that the Dingley bill
is not designed, any more than any other
high protective measure was designed,
to protect American labor or to pro-
duce revenues for the government. It is
designed primarily to protect the trusts
and to foster monopoly.--Baltimore
Blessed Are the Poor!
Representatives ot the crockery in-
terest who have gone to Washington to
protest against the new tariff complain
that the pi ,i.l:,.;ed ~hebedules discriminate
against go,.ii used by the poor and in
favor of those purchased by the rich.
Blessed are the poor, but they need ex-
pect little help froum a protective tariff.

The Joe Taylor Crowd Laid on the Shrlf.
Fired on by a Contemporary-He Didn't
Turn Up Jurt a Diversion Mixing
Morphine and Quinine.
For some time past a clique of citi-
oens, headed by Joe, Taylor, hnve been
agitating the idea of changing the namni
of this town from Oivendam Gulch to
Rose Hill. The clique went so far as to
call a public meeting for Wednesday
evening, which was largely attended.
Taylor and others made strong speeches
in favor of a change, claiming that the
name of the town kipt people away and
that to continue to call it Giveadam
(ulch was against policy, prosperity
and civilization. The editor of Th<
Kicrkr (who is ourself), the mayor (who
is ourself) and the Ipostmnast-r (who is
ourself) we:ro called upon to speak in
opposition. We gave a h!stoiy of the
town from the day old Bill Williams
didn't give a damn for thb Indians sur-
rounding him in this gulch, and thus
gave the name to a place which has
grown and pr'i'perdrl bheyonld any town
in the territory. There w'us something
honest and above board something
which smacked of a rough hut good
hnarted conamunnity-in the name of
Giveadam Gulchh. Ri;so Hill might do
for a colony of Sunday school teachers,
but for a people who knew the prints of a
grizzly bear's foot from the spot where
a mule had trikd to roll the q Idlo off it
wouldn't fit. Our cognomui-n is Jim
Hellso. It's a suggestive cognomen, and
certain folks might object to it, but yet
we have borne it through poverty to
wealth and had the word of the post-
master general that he loved to dwell
upon it. Jim Hellso and Giveadam
Gulch were linked together, and they
might as well try to change one name
as the other. Other speakers followed
in line, and when a vote was taken the
Taylor crowd was laid On the shelf by a
large majority. We are still Giveadam
Gulch, and Giveadam Gulch we shall
remain, and odds is the difference who
gives a blank and who doesn't.
Perhaps He Did.
Our esteemed contemporary, in his
issue of Tuesday, says that he met us on
Cochise place Sunday evening and fired
five shots at us, but owing to the dark-
ness we escaped. We were on Cochise
place Sunday evening. We passed two
loving hours with a widow whom we
have long been sweet on, and, after
pressing her hand for the thousandth
time, got under our hat and departed,
We walked down to Cheyenne street
and from thence to Apache avenue, but
did not see even a dog prowling about.
Our esteemed may have encountered us,
but we cau't recall the incident. He
may have fired upon us, but if so we
haven't the least remembrance. If he
did, it was going to useless trouble. We
have offered time and again tostand up
before him by daylight, at any range he
may elect, and let him blaze away, and
why he should put himself out at night
is a puzzle. The only thing we begrudge
the poor old chap isis hs ability to lie.
If we were half as good a liar as he is
we'd be in congress nest session.
He Didn't Tirn Up* '
We believe that 40 out of every -50
editors in Arizona will agree that.we
are always ready to extend every.cour-
tesy to members of the craft, and that
we seek to honor and elevate the pro-:
fession in all we do. Last week Mr.
John Baker, editor of the Bal Hill Ga-
zette, sent us a letter at the hands of a
man named Stdrrt. In that letter he
called us a bluffer, a coward and a
sneak, and added that if we would be at
Ten Mile creek Sunday noon he would
rid the earth of an incumbrance. As we
had never had a word with Mr. Baker,
we were surprised at his challenge, but
courtesy compelled us to say that we
would be on hand at the time named.
We were there at half past 11 and waited
until 8 o'clock in the afternoon, but no
Mr. Baker showed up. He did not even
send a messenger with an excuse. We
do not propose to waste further courtesy
on any such critter. We shall maJo it
our business to ride over to Bad Hill
some day soon and take his editorial
nose between our thumb and finger and
pinch it and give it a twist. If he will
fight, well and good; if not, we will
make him apologize for his letter. He
Is evidently a man who has blundered
into the profession and has no sense of
its honor and dignity, and the sooner he
is out of it the better.
Just a Diversion.
The Chicago correspondent who tele-
graphed his paper the other day that the

aldermen of this town had been shoot-
ing each other deserves to lose his ears.
At the Tuesday night meeting of the
common council Alderman Murphy call-
ed Alderman Baxter a liar. The latter
pulled his gun and fired a shot which
ticked Alderman Hastings'on the chin,
and we then pulled both our guns and
stopped the fun. The whole affair was
simply a diversion. Alderman Baxter
did lie, and Alderman Murphy thought
it no harm to say so. It was begun and
ended in a minute, nor was business at
all interrupted. There is never a meet-
ing of the council without the lie is
-passed and a gun drawn, but the boys
don't mean anything by it, It simply
makes the session lively and gives the
taxpayers to understand that they are
earning their $2 per week. The boys
just love each other like a band of broth-
ers, and the idea that they should han-
ker for each other's gore is too absurd to
put into print. If the correspondent
sends out any more such nonsense, he
will be waited upon by a committee,
and the results may be unpleasant.
Such Things Will Happen.
Wednesday forenoon last a teamster,
who gave his name as Bligh, called at
Young's drug store for quinine and
found the druggist out. George Curley,
the young clerk, didn't know the differ-
ence between quinine and morphine and
aaid so, but the stranger said he would
take the chances. That's why his fu-
neral was held Thursday afternoon. The
doctor said he got morphine, and before
the mistake Was discovered it was too
late to save his life. We understand that
some of the coroner's jury wanted to'
hold young Ourley responsible, though
they at length rendered a verdict which
exculpated him. We don't see how he
can be blamed. This is a country of
chances. If the stranger was willing to
risk it, the boy had nothing to say. On
two occasions Mr. Young himself has
sold us poison in place of quiine, and

each time we suggested the advisability
of labeling his jars and packages and
not. mixing th. In all up in a barrel to-
get her. He is now engaged in this work,
and after a day or two patrons will get
what. they call for and nueed have no
fears of taking it according todir(etions.
In this connection we gladly annoIunco
that Dr. White, who madre a mi.t-ik-' in
a prescription and rcnuw-d the dcath of
Saully Bill a few weks ago, hi. fourth
victim in two years, is not going to re-
move to No.w Moxsico, as report hlis it.
He -ill re1manu right hire naiona nl and
contilr.'i to do his bf-1,t as a physiiI-iaii,
and, should he nifiake any furthl:r nis-i
takes, h,- will expect to have thomn over-
lookcd, as in th:l past. None o-f his vic-
tims had any particular stuiiling in thi
comnuniiity, and tho doctor generously
footed the funeral expenses in e-ach and
every case. M. QUAD.



He Makes a Hot Speech and Floors All
Opponents-Present Protection Is One
Sided and Robe the Farmer-He Now
Sells In a Cheap and nu.ys In a Dear
Market--Can Be Protected Only by Ex-
port Bounties on Farm Products---If He
Cannot Get These Ilo Wants Absolute
Free Trade.
Senator Cannon of Utah introduced
on May 25 an amendment to the tariff
bill which is likely to make trouble for
the Republican i-aders and which may
break down the whole protective sys-
tem. The amendment favors the Lubin
scheme of paying export bounties on
farm products. This scheme is now be-
ing pushed vigorously, not only by its
author, David Lubin, but also by the
granges of many states and by trades
unions and ministers. It makes its fight
inside the ranks of protection and has
already opened more farmers' eyes to
the folly of the system than all of the
tariff reform work that has been done.
Senator Cannon told some plain truths
when introducing this amendment. He
spoke in part as follows:
It was with great surprise, upon an ex-
amination of the measure, that I found
that the great class of our population
who have from the beginning not only
supported the protective tariff party by
their votes, but have supported the pro-
tective tariff principle by their industry
from the beginning of its operation,
were in a large degree excluded from
any of its benefits. It is, I say, to sup-
ply a very patent omfssion from the
measure as it now stands that the
amendment is proposed and will be ad-
vocated here until av vote shall be had
The bill as it is offered today affords
no protection to agricultural staples.
There is remaining, I presume, no ad.
vocate of the protective tariff system
who will contend that in this bill, with
these import duties, there is afforded
any protection or benefit of increased
price arising from import duties upon
any of those commodities of which we
export our surplus, nor are there re-
maining at tho present time in the
school of protection very many men
who will contend' and none who will
prove that the indirct protection afford-
ed tQ the farmer b.the tariff on man-
ufactured goods is ~sufficient.compensa-
tion to him for t.e vast cost. entailed
upon him in carrying the protective
tariff system upon manufactured goods.
It has become apparent to all thought-
ful obs'rvers, and certainly it is known
to all who have any direct connection
with the agricultural ildlustry of the
United States, that the farmer cannot,
and the man who reads him well knows
that thofarmer will not, much longer
bear this burden.
There are three remedies possible.
The second remedy, and one which I,.
as a believer in protection, would be
ready to accept rather than to hold to
and vote for ain inequitable bill, would
be absolute free trade, by which the
farmer might buy as cheaply as he is
compelled to sell, and that remedy this
congress will not seek to enforce. There
remains, then, but the third-the appli-
cation of an export bounty which shall.
in a measure give restitution to the
farmer for the higher prices which he is'
compelled to pay in protected markets.
No proposition based upon the decla-
ration of equal protection to all the in-
dustries of the United States is com-
plete, nor can there be successfully
made a contention that it is just, unless
it gives to the exporter of agricultural
staples from the United States an equiv-
alent benefit to that given to the manu-

facturer by the imposition of an import
A duty of 25 cents a bushel upon
wheat is a delusion and a snare. The
farmer of the United States gets no ben-
efit from it. The imposition of duty upon
cotton, if that were attempted, would
be of no value to the cotton producer.
The impositiomnof a duty on rye is of no
value to the farmer of the United States.
Every other protected industry has a
direct benefit from this tariff, because
where we do not produce lu the Uuited
States sufficient for our own tousump-
tion and a quantity cousiderablo in ex-
tent for export the import duty serves
as a means whereby the local producer
can enhance the price to the local con-
The immediate benefit to the farmer
derived from the treasury of the United
States would not be all. For this com-
paratively small expenditure to him he
would receive for these staples more
than $2125,,000,000 in higherprices than
he now receives. It is true that this
would increase the price of breadstuffs
to the consumers in the cities, but un-
der the declaration made here today
that with higher prices the people will
be more able to'buy we will have a
larger consumption of wheat and wheat
flour and other agricultural staples in
the cities of the country than we have
now at the low prices.
Mr. Butler-Mr. President, the sena-
tor from Utah said he was in favor of
about $18,000,000 export duty on wheat
at 10 cents a bushel. If we pay an ex-
port bounty of 10 cents a bushel, that
will raise the price if every bushel of
wheat, whether exported or consumed
at home, that much, will it not?
Mr. Cannon-Certainly it will.
Mr. Butler-Then, for an investment
of $13,000,000, which the government
would pay out in the shape of an export
bounty, the wheat farmers of the coun-
try would get their protection of $60,-
000,000 or $70,000,000, would they
Mr. Cannon-They would, if there

be any truth in the protective principle.
Mr. Buth r-That would be a very
good investment.
Mr. Cannon-It would be a very good
investment if it were to be made in be-
half of any manufacturing industry or
any trust in the United States, but any-
thilug i bnohrlff of the farmer is looked
upon with scorn and 13 crnsidri-d a

The senate of the United States can
afford to be absolutely just. I believe
the amendment should be adopted.
Mr. Chandler-May I ask the senator
from Utah a question?
Mr. Cannon-Certainly.
Mr. Chandler-I heard the senator
speak of robbery a little while ago with
reference to the tariff. Does the senator
mean that the farmer has been robbed
all these years by the tariff? Is that the
senator's argument?
Mr. Cannon-Yes, sir, decidedly.
Mr. Chandler-When did the senator
first think that the American tariff sys-
tem was a robbery of the farmer?
Mr. Cannon-Just so soon as the sen-
ator gave sufficient attention to the sub-
ject to understand the truth of it. I ad-
vocated Republican tariffs as earnestly
and as faithfully in my humble way as
the senator from New Hampshire, and I
believed exactly what I taught.
But I am not disposed any longer to
advocate a system by which one portion
of the population is taxed for the benefit
of another portion of the population. I
think that it is unfair to cherish only
one class, and that the class which has
already the most power of self protec-
tion. If the senator from Npw Hamp-
shire will go across the plains of Kansas,
as I have gone, and across the plains of
Nebraska, I believe in him sufficiently
to think he will come back and say that
this bill is robbery of the American
