EDITDI.S Well, the villiiiuy has been consum- mated. The Mississippi shot gun has at lust taken a scat on the Supreme bench. The friend of the murderer of the holm family has at last reached a tion where he can laugh at the sighs nnd te.-irs of widows and orphans, made so bv the Mississippi shot-gun. The Su preme Court of the United States has never before been degraded to such a level. -Can it be I hat a jiv-t God can look upon such a profanation of a high and sacred office and hold the Nation guilt- less? ere Mr. Lamnr mentally and physically qualified to fill the high office he is already past the age of usefulness and in a few years he can retire on larger pay and live luxuriously, when better men have been hanged for a less crime than he is charged with. And Ihis outrage has been perpetrated bv Grover Cleveland, assisted by every Democratic Senator nnd throe Republi- cans, Riddleberger, Stewart and Stan ford, which act renders them' fit associ- ates of Judas Iscariot and. Benedict Ar nold. The strange gentlemen seen by scores on our thoroughfares, wearing fine beaver hats and walking by twos, are the National Board of Trade. are holding their meetings in illard's Hall, and discussing commercial matters. The question of whether the govern- ment should take possession of the tele- graph lines wa- unfair to the vounger States. The amount refundud to Kansas under the bill would be about while it- share of the tax appropriated would be over half u million of dollars. And for what? Not under the guise of promoting education, not, under any assumed phil- anthropic idea, but because some cler: iu the Treasury imd got "is'tiu k" in the matter of book keeping The vote stood 48 yeas to 10 mus. The Blair (.'dm.atioual bill WHS next t.iken up by the Senate and ably dis- cussed by its author until the hmir of Yesterday the Senate was engaged in receiving petitions and memorials and wilh bills on the caK.n dar, also the deficiency bill, and limber land que-tion, and after transacting ex ecutive business, adjourned uniil next Monday. The House don't, seem (o havf accomplished anything and as all appropriation bills must originate in thv House, the Senate is kind lying around loose, waiting on the House to tiring in some business. The Dem of the House are slill a little son- over the way some of them have bet.n treated in the formation of the commit tees. Among these is Mr. Cox, of New York, whose friends are very indignant at Mr. Carlisle. The Republican National League was crowded last Wednesday evening to hear telling speeches from Senator.-. Chandler and Teller and Representa- tives McCi.tc.heou, Findley and Perkins. JUNIATA. H. C. Daguc. who was once a citizen of thai prosperous little village of that name" in 111 is county, was arrested by Sheriff Swain Monday night, charged with hav ing forced a note on some BKie Creek township parties. The crime is claimed to have been committed two or three but the whereabouts of Mr. Dague were unknown until he cairn- here of his own accord. Mr. Dague was at, one time a well respected and his arrest will no doubt surprise a grc.-t many. The matter was kept very quiet until aftev his arrest F. B. Zay. of Findlay, has the following unofficial vote of the sev- eral lodges of Odd Fellows in the Sute for Gr-incl Master of the Grand Lodge indicating his election to that office: Zay, 2.188; Bowcn, Winchell, Marshall. 3U8; Fowler, 308. Zay's plurality, 17.5. _______ CREAM TUB MISTER EDITER: We arc havin quite a time out in this naburhood on the taruf. Since I hav bin ritin my letters for the REPL-IU.ICAX I am catchin it from all sides. I blaim Mr. Edson for gettin me into this trub- blc, for if he hadn't wrote his letter to the Times. I would never have thot of cxpressin my vues ou this subject. But I thot I node mor about taruf than Mr. Edsou, so I took up my pen and went to wurk, but I kinder wish now it was lade doun. A man by the name of Bigy pel moved into our naburhood last fall from Connecticut. He's a real gen nine Yanky and I juge frum the way he talks he's a beleevcr in pertective taruf. He cum over tu my house one uite last week and the way he went for me about mv last letter in the REPUBLICAN was a cuusiien, He must hav bin rend in Cleveland's clycopedia frum the way he rattled off int'ormashuu. He says "Free- nology, when you go to talkin about the tarut" your talkin about sumthing you know nuthin about." "Say to says lie, "that Ohio farmers dout want taruf. Why, the res Virginy. which is older than and yet 51 per cent of Vir- giny's popilashun is farmin, while only per ceut of Pensylvan.t's is t'urmin. Virginy laud is worth an acker while Fen'sylvana land is worth an acker. There is Kiutucky which jiues your state on the south. Oi per cent of her popilashun does farmin while iu Ohio only 40 per cent of her peeple ingage n agricultural persutes. Kiutucky land is woVth an acker, while the hill tops as well as the tlats in Ohio is worth au acker. Now why is savs he. 'Til tell you. It's because Pensylvuna and Ohio hav sum thing else tu do besides raisin pertaters and niakin moonshine whisky and ap- ple jack. The people in these states mauit'actur and biki towns and cities to eat up what the fanners raise. Wliy a stale or says he, "wilh littet liroducliv iudustrcs cept the cultiva- shun of the soil has little welth, few markets and no indoosments to produce more than they want for says he. "Ohio is "a kind of England to Ken- Kentucky docs the farmin and Ohio does the bizness. The only differ- ence is, they don't hav to pay duty on the truck they sell in this state. Why. Freonology." says he, "didn't you ever iravalr" "Not says I. says he, "You go to Mishigan necr the lumber reguus autl see what the farmers thare get for tharc prodoosc. Prices in don't bother them eny I tell Everything they raze they sell to Ihe lumbermen nl lhare own prices. See now it was in Kansas before Uio rail- rodes was. bilt. The farmers sold ih.ire stuf to the Mexicans who cum to thare dores and bot thare corn and shelled it and pade them one doiler in for it, hat spoilt if.' The rale rodes when thay coiumcuced to carry it to the MexicMti's dore. Then noise ,t_d Mowuri prodooae was brot into com- with Kansas crops and ihe had, to be governed datilurii prices. So you see Mr. Twede, MIC advautiges of a Home market. You ,.ui Cincinnati and Cleveland and Co- utnbus and Dayton and Springfield and .oledo and almost a hundred more Ohio .nies with all lhare mauyfacturing in- tluslrevs Kentucky and the percent t armors would be less, the price of ih. ire prodoosc hier and tharc land would be worth more an acker. Ithaini the grate amount the farmer razes that makes him tnrifty, but the prices he gets i or what he does raze. You say New has the advantage of the west ,11 manifacturin? ell, that may be so just uow, but she wont hav when the .vest, gets to manifacturin all her own goods as she ot tu. hen that time "urns the west will be on top. She will men luv ihe fadries and the farms tu, New England will hav nulhin but .lu; fabrics. But, Freenology, if Mr. Cleveland's free trade are adopted, ,ie west will never be anything but a liuld and paster lot, what Eng- antl wants it to be. Even then Eug- ji.ui would'nt by our corn and wheat. ;ause she raises everything she wants j now over in India, one of her pozes- .oils." Az I culden get a word in egc- j ways. Bigy thot 1 had nutiiin tu say, so he look his hat and left. Bigy is a tur I think this is the last letter I'll rite on the tariff, so good by. FREEXOI.OGY TWEDF..

I remarked io the old woman when he left, "Just wait til! I go to Van I'll see a Dinnnccralic lawyer and u-et -sum pinters ihsit will nock hi.s wood- i-n nuiini'g argynient into a cocked hut.' Oh yes. Mrs. Twede. will do no such a thing. I tell Higy noes more in a mi nit ttiau the'whole Dimmecratic party tun I node it was no use to argv with her, so I wailed till mornin, when I went to town for pinters and it warent long till I had a pint. I dropped into McKim's store to wait till my law- got back from his dinner, when a tb'otliiruck me. I to a grey hcdcd ulerk: "Chat's this calico Mr. Twede, I'll sell you calico .ml of that lot for 4 cents a yard. Over ,iere is a lot that is worth o cents." is a lax on them goods haint I. "Oh yes." says he, "Tware is a dooty on prints that ure im- from other countries, but these are made in the U. S. and we pay no lux on them." "What is the tax on cal- ico, I axed. "Seven mid one- half cents a yard, with 35 per cent ad- verlorumadded." BOX I. sex he, "is the ncr cent of tne valuashun." Ah! 'tiz is it. I didn't kno it. flow do you sell them drillins, "They are worth ten cents." "What's the dooty on "The dooty on those would average about nine "cents." "Wildrais and mugwumps! I ot to get them fur a cent a yard theu and the calico fur nuthin with three and a half cenis tlirude in fur a cromo, accordio to Cleveland's message." "How is asked the astonished clerk.
