Memphis is and is to be more so to the South what Chicago is to the West The 11 O is shut out from this Southern rail road center and expects to enter that city on the most available route The most

is now the Illinois Cen auwd mint available route based on the fact that it has been demonstrated by actual survey Some years ago the Illinois Central similarly situated made this survey and adopted it over other routed Ijand only abandoned it because of their purchase of the Chesapeake Ohio This is good grounds for believing that it is the preferablo route for the M1 IO to enter Memphis It is true that the I C survey on leaving Hickman skirted the highlands under the blutTj thronglti the bottoms and on through Lake county which is easily demonstrated to be the better route provided the

up the gauge The in cident Monday was the direct sequel of the very hitter controversy which arose b9tween tho senators in SOUl Carolina last spring Mr McLaurln l privilege what he charged as a conspiracy to discredit him in his own state for acts and views which did not meet the ap proval of certain democratic leaders He declared that he was being humil fated and according to public prints was to be excluded from the demo erotic caucus because he had acted upon certain public issues in a way which ho considered was for the h interests of the country and the people of his state He

allegiance into a party with which he did not care to affiliateSenator Jones chairman of the dem ocratic national committee denied that he had any ulterior motives in not inviting Mr McLaurin to enter

consider- Ing l the possibility of the seizure of the La Guayra custom house by Germany in order that this payment may be effected In this connection Presi dent Castro told me that Germany would have to wait for her money I am not responsible for the debts in curred by my predecessors said Cas tro This is a commercial debt and Germany should have recourse to the courts of law And besides what can Germany do If she takes the port of La Guayra I shall at once declare free trade and every merchant may then import as much as he likes without payment of duties through the customhouse seized by her Or I am willing to give Germany a concession for establishing a large colony but nothing more If she attempts to approach Caracas her troops will be exterminated I wage war against them after the

suggestions of many things in our time Our eyes dilate and our heart quickens in its pulsations as we read of HUts in the third century the sixth century the fourteenth century but there were more farreaching events crowded into the nineteenth century than into any other and the last 20 years eclipse any preceding 20 We read in the daily newspapers of events announced iu one paragraph and with

insist that its abandonment is the only tan promotersHllIal1le dropping it because its adoption would inflict a great wrong upon the people says the Detroit Free Press They apprehended the moral status of their ease as clearly when they in itiated It as they do now It was con lceived in selfishness and pushed with the single idea of benefiting certain preferred interests that were exposed during the long discussion of last winter The men behind the under taking have known from the outset that they were merely planning n great financial coup that if executed suceftsfully would mulct the country in the sum of at least 30000000 that I it would receive literally nothing by way of compensation and that the sole beneficiaries would no those working the colossal confidence game Yet White conscience has worked no change of heart on the part of the men who started out to enrich them selves by the method which has grown as familiar ns it il is obnoxious to the people popular opinion bus checked if it has not halted them It will be surprising if their shrewdness has not detected the handwriting upon the wall TIc mattes who pro vide the revenue of the government are in no mood to make an enforced contribution at such dictation or for guy such purpose as it has been sought to conceal under the cloak of building up our merchant marine keeping jiiivi with our lA iiminif commerce getting into the game with our foreign competitors amid ris lag to the dignity of a world power These are winning slogans in the ab stract and liable to ignite inflamma ble patriotism but the promoters are now in tilt position of a man who has shown his hand when nothing but a blutr could have ninde it a ne gotiable possession The country through the debates in congress aud exhaustive discussion in the newspaper knows the true inwardness of the subsidy scheme and realizes that it is without a material feature de serving commendation or support In addition to being exposed as a ring that ix out for the money when we now have a greater tonnage in foreign trade than can find employment when private capital is giving the shipyards all that they can do and stands ready to meet every demand that commerce makes there is a grave political consideration The schemers are republicans aricl inclurijj such party luminaries as llama the head and front of the party management Senators Frye Aldrich Lodge and many other republican leaders in their respective sections of the coun try rues have been forced to under stand that their subsidy plan is un popular and that to give it the force of congressional sanction would im peril the future of the party Time president himself although he lion been quoted as an original supporter of the movement sees how im politic it would be to urge the scheme in his message and will probably pass it over Time rural congressmen here Wen hearing things at lone and we are inclined fo believe that the meas ore will not figure in the records of the next session Political policy it impresses us blocks the grabbers COMMENTS OF THE PRESS An unjust tariff makes nn overflowing treasury Washington Post Time demand that the tariff shall be revised by the friends of the system seems to mean that while nobody else is to have anything to do with its revision its friends are too good friends to touch it Milwaukee Free Press The surplus in the treasury since July is over 30000000 the greatest that has ever accumulated in that space of time Such a condition is a great encourager of extravagance and a positive aid in promoting schemes like the subsidy

At a recent meeting of the Indi ana democratic committee the mem bers agreed in the belief that the money question would have no place in the state campaign and that the fight should be made along the

There is to be no reciprocity and no tariff revision The programme iimt loIct well enough alone states time Cleveland Plain Dealer If the commercial and manufacturers or ganizatiuns think present conditions are not well enough and that unless something done to better them they will assuredly become worse they must be fooled with promises to do something when it is discovered what is the right thing to do A commis sion to make a thorough investigation of the entire subject of reciprocity and tariff revision is to be proposed nnd congress will then dismiss the matter from its attention until the report of the commission iis made at some dis tant day A commission is a convenient way of disposing of an embarrassing sub ject It takes its own time to investi gate reports at the last minute and either presents conflicting reports and therefore accomplishes nothing or its recommendations are utterly this regarded by congress The industrial commission authorized by the last congress in order to evade legislative action on a burning question Is hopelessly l l divided on Its conclusions and nothing practical is therefore expect ed as a result of its prolonged investigation The tariff commission ap pointed under the Arthur administra tion nearly a score of years ago made a voluminous report including a complete tariff and congress proceeded at once to enact a tariff utterly at vari

Philippine legislation in the near future will be studied with intelligent Interest by the American people There is a strong trust opposition to free trade with the Philippines Yet if the Philippines are held as at present there can be no moral right to tax Philippine ex ports to this country Just how the will of the trusts is to be carried out in this matter the Philippines retained as domestic

will supplement them for accord ing to the present plans its doors will be opened only to those who desire to take up a post graduate course Mr Carnegie also wants the new univer s ity to take the lead In original research so that the United States can eventually stand side by side with Germany if not excel that nation in1 scientlHc development Mr Carnegies plan does not propose a national

cancellation It was the Cuban Issue of 1855 that wns impressed for this service The first consideration for a boauti ful philatelic collection is the stamps themselves and the second Is their arrangement in the album Badly en tered torn or heavily canceled stamps should by all means be avoided Besides being pr ctcally worthless they spoil the beauty of any collection The beginner who tries to get as many stamps as possible without regard to their arrangement in sets makes a great mistake In selling a collection a complete set of stamps would sell for a third or a half as much more than
