Reform There are indications that there maybe an interesting fight in the new Con gress on the question of materially re versing the Dlngley tariff It will be remembered that during the latter part of the recent session u Congress Reprisi ntatlve Babcock in traduced a bill remoping the duties on certain manufactures of iron and steel controlled by the trust and there were other propositions to change the Ding Ity law notably by the abolition of Its provision for countervailing duties It was generally assumed at the time that Mr Babcock s bill was a mere bluffand that nothing more would be heard of It with the expiration of the Fifty sixth Congress Mr Babcock now comes forward however and assures the country that this was a mistaken assumption He was he declares hon tst in the introduction of bin bill But be does out stop here He will prove his sincerity by reintroducing the bill In tbe sew Congress and be will supplement this with bills for the abolition of the duties on plate glass and tin plate Mr Babcock adds however that tbe day whose coming the CourierJournal has long predicted Is dawnlngtbe day when the tariff beneficiaries themselves will be the strongest element demand log tariff reform He says reports the Chicago Chronicle that many of the beneficiaries of the tariff especially such of them as have been successful in selling their products abroad in open competition against tbe world are willing to surrender tbe advantage they are supposed to enjoy under tbe Dingley tariff And be specifies the producers of lumber farm machinery and railroad and structural iron and steel He adds that tariff reform legislation will engross much of the time of Congress at its next session and that the changes which will be made In the present law will probably be more radical than the most ardent tree trader could hope for There will perhaps be a disposition in many quarters to doubt that such radical changes in the tariff can be ef fected at tbe next session Most people are not yet ready to believe that anything like real tariff reform can come through the Republican party and they would not hesitate to say that if Mr Babcock shall press the measures they will be stubbornly and effectually resisted in bis party Still stranger things have happened than the radical revision by the Re publicans of the Dingley tariff in the direction of real reform The Republican party has not always been a par ty of high protection One of tbe se crets of its success has been in seeing and even foreseeing the trend of pub lic sentiment and trimming its sails accordingly Tbe party that less than six years ago was adrifton the moneta ry sea yetso quickly found its bearings and set its course when the first signs of the storm of 1896 appeared is capa ble of any reversal on the U lff Mr Babcock was a member of the last Ways and Means Committee and is a member of the Republican Con gressional Committee Whether be is proceeding merely on hisjown initiative orfrom a knowledge of changing sentiment in his party it is not important to inquire at present rho probability of such tariff reform as he speaks of may be summed up very brifly If the protected Interests desire tariff reform the Republican party will give them tariff reform if they do not desire tar reform nobody else can get tariff re fohlJ from the Republican party CourierJournal

readers But Wares action is strange indeed It indicates he believes his wife guilty yet he is living with her vlt is said that when Funton was quite a yoarj man he fell in love courted and was engaged to marry a Spanish girl who was in college in this country They were to marry as soon as the girl graduat ed Commencement Day arrived the young lady received her diplo ma and left for Spain without no tifying her lover For this piece of treachery Funston swore veng once against the Spanish Government and he has been fighting it ever since While Mr McKinley is racking his brains to try to satisfy the de- mandsF of the Republican bossesI for patronage American interests in China are in a fair way to Buffer According to late advices from Pekin the other Powers are considering the advisability of quietly pushing tHe United States out of tho Chinese question by noring it in future negotiations If the United States should beE pushed out of the Chinese diplo matic door what would become of the open door to American trade m China 7 Mr McKinley may find the filling of a few offices a more important question than this is but when he hears from the American people he will discover what a mistake he has made brt unfortunately that dis covery will not restore the American trade with China which is p now in the opinion of those most competent to judge in jeopardy Wo take the following account of the capture of Aguinaldo from the CourierJournal Theaobivo S ment of Gen Furston with his four comrades and seventyeight natives is far greater than the more capture of the Filipino lead important as it is Maj Gen MacArthur reports that as a re suit of conferences now in prog ross Auguinaldo will issue an ad dress advising n general surrender the delivery of arms and the ac ceptance of American supremacy r Gen MacArthur gives Gen Fun 1IJll success recommends that he be made a 1 Itt Bngadier General ofthe regular t army The details of Funstons t7 r LII expedition form a tats of thrilling interest The five Americans wer curried for five days and nights ostensibly as prisoners of war through a country never befor- visited by American soldiers They were obedient and subject t the orders of the natives in whom they had placed confidence well was it planed that at the proper time when Fnnston threw off his mask and took command his followers obeyed and the nor lays which they sent quickly scattered the enemy and enabled the Americans to capture Aguinaldo The decision of the Court of Ap peals in reversing the lower court in the cases of Powers and Howard charged with the killing of Wm Goebel has been expected and judging from the tone of the papers said decision is approved by a large part of the people Not however that the people believe Powers and Howard are innocent but for the purpose of satisfyin- those who contend that a fair trial had not been had The decision giving anew trial is based on technical errors and there is no a doubt but the Commonwealth will be able to make the case as strong as it was when they were tried before In the case of How ard the entire court agreed but in the powers case it divided four threetDemocrats Now that political excitement has subsided it is to be hoped that Powers and How ard together with others may be tried without the wholesale abuse of the court that shall have juris diction In our judgment it will be easier to secure their conviction now than it was at their former trial and when convicted upon unimpeachable evidence the pun ishment should be administered and the clamor for their pardons end but we do not expect the Re publican organs to acquiesce in their trials regardless of how they may proceed unless their acquittal is foreshadowed As in the first we expect these partisan organs to attempt to impeach every witness that will produce damaging evi dence for the slayers of Wm Goe bel but in the end we hope to see justice administered in such a way as will teach rising generations

small payment to the smooth scamp who accepts his victims money and seeks other suckers This is a very shrewd scheme an its plausibility makes it danger ous Let merchants beware We publish in another

ranching in Wash ington years ago he saId but finally an old fellow with two pretty daugh ters settled in our district Then the boys were all dead anxious to see themI but as you know the life a cowboy leads off to himself makes him feel pretty shy when there is a woman round However the boys would ride up to the house and ask for a drink of water or inquire about a stray heifer but nary one of them had the courage to get off hits horse when the old wom an asked them in but would shy off liKe a scared threeyearold Well one day I came along and when the old woman asked me to get down jumped right off my pony and told he straight out Sec here maam I aint hunting a lost steer nor a strayed pony and I dont want a drink of water either I have come to sec those daughters of yours Well sir that old woman she gribbed me by the hand and yanked meinto the saying Thank the Lord theres one fellow round here got some lioss sensed Different Standards There are perhaps no two people have the same standard of what good what is right what is proper and what is exactly the correct thing in all things No two of us are just actly alike in tastes manners and to eating we differ there as much as in anything else To us there is nothing better than good egg bread properly made and cooked used while hot with fresh butter on it while some other editor would think us plebian in taste and prefer fine cake and rich pastries We might contend that his diet would ruin his digestion while he would no doubt believe that our corn bread would cause our skin to become greasy The husband may be exceedingly fond of Limberger cheese which the wife cannot tolerate while she be lieves there Is is nothing in the world that Is equal to a half dozen spring onions or If they cannot be secure then one good sized one that has just been imported from Spain What each eats offeuls the other and what both eat perhaps is unpleasant to the neighbors One man believes in a high collar that seems to saw off the neck of the wearer while the other is satisfied with an abbreviated baud around the neck which is his idea of the latest style One prefers a dress of blade one of brown another of blue some want white and so it is all the way through Ono believes in one mode of baptism another in sonic other mode while perhaps the third dots not believe in any of the modes suggested und per haps regards none as essential salva tion One is certain that unless we have free silver ata ratio of to 1 that the country will rapidly go tothe devil while the other believes that anything outside of a gold standard already lands us in the country that is hotter than this And it is iri all the things that go to make up this fe It is alright for people to haw tliesv different opinions But at the same time it is right to remember that others have the same rights and prlvI1lges we claim for our selves A Testimonial Pro Old Englmd I consider Chamberlains Cough Rem edy the best n the world for bronchi tis
