Ohio May 24 L Hurter gave his views at great length today on the issues which confront the people in view of recent decision in tho income tax cases He has a plan for the of revenue which he thinks will save the financial ment of the government from The tax on nil kinds or nearly all kinds of tobacco should be increased to where the result would be an increase of revenue from this source of not less than The tax on beer should be increased which would not result iu any decrease in the size of glass or increase in the coat to drinkers The whisky tax already shoald be enlarged enough to add to the revenue from this source about Tea and coffee should be taxed enough to cost the consumer about one mill per cup or a cent for each ten cups which tax would bring in about in ordinary years Here you have an increase in the in- come of the United States of without putting a noticeable burden upon anybody With this simple lation our deficiency would be trans- ferred into that wholesome surplus of and no calling or industry would suffer nnd no individual citizen would have any just ground for com- plaint It is but fair to say that if the Kinley had not placed sugar oil the free list and granted an outrageous bounty to the growers of sugar far the sake of increasing an already lously high discriminating tariff taxes which go into private pockets instead of the public Treasury we would in the past four years have had more revenue and instead of an in- creased debt approximating 000 on June 30 1895 would have shown about surplus with a gold reserve of about with no increase of public liabilities In other words but for the wretched measure known as the Mr land in and canceling instead of selling United States boude Mr Cleveland's course in the sale of bonds was forced upon him and the skill ond sound sense he bus displayed io the matter are deserving of the est praise I feel that the party if any which boldly declares for free coinage at to 1 would do well to buy a and order a shroud However with all the noise and uproar the net result will I fear be a couple of sneaking dodging platforms facing both waye a kind of political trap to catch the vote or If either party has courage and intelligence to adopt a fair square unmistakable plank which will demand a dollar for the working man worth at all times and everywhere 100 cents in gold it will have a walkover in 1896 Friends of Both Gentlemen Deny Tlint There Is 111 WASHINGTON May of Secretary Carlisle and of Senator burn are anxious to modify statements that were given throughout the country in dispatches concerning the re- ported attack on the Secretary by the Senator It seems that according to the ments of their friends this attack something of a hypothetical case was stated to Mr Blackburn that was It the Secretary was coming to Kentucky to attack him and this caused indignant expressions on the part of Blackburn who announced what he would do if the Secretary carried out such a gram Speaking of this reported difficulty between the Senator and the Secretary a friend of the former who is a nent said The short telegram which appeared in the press dispatches a few days ago coming from Ky in which Aged of the Treasury Passes Peacefully Away END OF A it was stated that the Senator had severely denounced Mr Carlisle has every one acquainted with the two gentlemen and their relations with each other knew it would prove a gross exaggeration if in fact it could be said to have any real foundation at all It simply grew out of a casual tion in which it being suggested that Mr Carlisle was coming to Kentucky to make war on Mr Blackburn the Senator remarked that if Mr Carlisle was coming to attack him he would make it warm for him And this has been tortured into a denunciation of the Secretary There is really no such personal feeling between the friends of these two distinguished men The great mass of the friends of each are the mutual friends of Differences of opinion on the financial question have not changed the personal relations of their friends toward these two favorite sons Indeed many of the closest friends and greatest admirers of Mr Carlisle differ most radically with him on the pending money question He says himself that he has no more personal interest in the question than any other good citizens and there is no more reason for ties on this account between these tlemen or their friends than that two lawyers who opposed each other in a NORTH ATLANTIC SQUADRON Go to Cuba MADRID May more boats will leave Spain for Cuba row Papers found upon the body of

police department 6 cents a week places THE NEWS at your door every morning in the week Always reliable Admiral Walker Will Probably Talio Command WASHINGTON May hag been stated the delay in filling the cancy in the command of the North Atlantic station resulting from Admiral Meade's retirement was due to the de- sire of the President to have Cupt ley D Evans made chief of the Bureau of navigation to succeed Admiral say the station for which Evans has applied It is now reported however that when the Kiel celebration is over the New with Copt Evans in command will remain on the European station and that theSan Francisco will be sent home Meanwhile if arrangements can be made for the command of the Atlantic station the assignment will be made without re- gard to the Kiel fleet Admiral say wants the command and Secretary Herbert desires him to remain as chief of the bureau of navigation The Secretary's wishes may be ried out and probably will be heeded in which case it is that Admiral Walker or Commodore Selfridge now the ranking commodore may be given command of the squadron Admiral Walker has applied for sea law suit declare war on each other There is without doubt and intense earnestness on the part of the free age meu in Kentucky as elsewhere and the political records of the champions are being freely and ed Mr Carlisle has perhaps earned his greatest reputation by his advocacy ia the courts of doubtful causes His friends are not now going to become enemies simply because he is ing what they consider a very bad case OJf Sudden and of a San

sailors whose cervices the Government could not dispense with This was successfully and in less than sis mouths from the time of Mr McCulloch's pointment all the obligations of the Government were paid and the actual work of reducing the debt was begun His next most important work was the conversion of more than 000 of short-time obligations into a funded debt This he successfully also and in a little more than two years the whole debt of the country was put in satisfactory shape In his annual reports Mr ted a steady reduction of the national debt the retirement of the legal tenders and a speedy return to specie payments urging thut a permanent public debt might be dangerous to republican in- He believed also that it was not the business of the Government to furnish the people with a
