No sweep of Arm that does some work for god but harvests also some More of the truth of god and sweeps it into the Treasury the Brooks. Wiry to Fence a pasture Joel a much m they aver did. Hie Price of cloth is not affected appreciably by the fall in the Price of Wool. A Farmer May ret a Low Price for his hides but he pays a High Price for the boots end shoes and harness that he la obliged to Purchase. Formerly tile Price of articles required for foot governed the Price of almost everything else. The Price of most articles was regulated by that of wheat which was regarded As the most important of All products. All this is changed now. Farmers have nothing to do in regulating prices they take what is offered for their products. The Price of nearly every article they Are obliged to Purchase is regulated by associations and combinations formed tit Nung manufacturers. The manufacturers of nearly every important article Combine to limit production and keep up prices. They even Combine to prevent Tho establishment of factories similar to their own. In Many manufacturing departments there is no Competition Between different establishments. A uniform scale of prices is adopted which is rigidly adhered to. In Many cases our Patent Laws and Tariff system enable them to establish and perpetuate the most oppressive monopolies. Tho producers of articles of food in this country Are obliged to compete with the producers of similar products in every part of the world. But our manufacturers whose goods banners Are obliged to consume have no Competition except among themselves and by combination they generally manage to prevent it. With such a state of affairs it is no great Marvel that banners Are not prosperous. A great Deal is said about the condition of the Fanner. What about the condition of the politicians who legislate for his asserted interests a ruthless extortion is Tho phrase in characterizing the operation of the Tariff Laws. This description is perfectly accurate concise and overflowing with meaning and suggestion. Quot ruthless extortion a tells the whole truth about the Tariff in two a h. Warp. United states for tile relinquishment by France of the treaty of 1778, by which on the one hand our Independence was secured and by which on the other we guaranteed in perpetuity to his most Christian majesty the then present possessions of the Crown of France in America. George 8. Boutwell. Farmers must Combine. It can be said that agricultural property generally has depreciated since 1860 More than 40 per cent. This steady and extraordinary depreciation in farming property these Long hours of hard wort for Little Llort of the most frugal living these More recent seasons with each More fruitless in material returns than the one before it. Afford no very Rosy Outlook to the tillers of the Seal. Farmers certainly have reason to Somolain and they Are beginning to complain More and More. They Are being driven to the Wall and they Are asking what is driving them there. There cannot be a prosperous country where agriculture does not flourish. Everything a Farmer has to sell is very Tow everything or very nearly everything that the Farmer has to buy is comparatively High. Wheat Over a Large portion of the Region in which it i6 produced brings the producer out 50 cents a Bushel. The Price of Grain harvesters and self binders however remains the same As when wheat was Worth pm a Bushel in the place where it was raised. The same is the Case with the plough that turned the Furrow the Harrow that pulverized the soil and the seeder that nut in the trop. Everything that is turned off from the farm is very cheap but everything that is turned off from the factories is dear. The old scale of prices for farm products has All been changed but the scale of prices for the products of manufactories remains practically unchanged. Reel. Mutton Aud Wool Are ail Low but poets and wire Necee the French spoliation claims appropriation. After a delay of four years Sinco the first judgments were rendered by the court of claims in the class of cases known As French spoliation claims an appropriation has been made by Congress for the payment of the first instalment of the same found to be due for the appropriation does no cover All the judgments heretofore rendered. It is the theory of the government that it is ready at All times to pay its just debts and hence whatever the delay in payment the responsibility is put upon the claimant and consequently without inquiring his elfin for interest is rejected. Between till years 1790 and 1800 the privateers and cruisers of France seized Abd detained or As in most instances converted to the use of that government about fifteen Hundred vessels belonging to citizens of the United states. For these acts the government of the United states demanded compensation of France and France on its part demanded compensation of the United states for its failure to observe the stipulation of the treaty of 1778. The vital stipulation on the part of France was this a the essential and direct end of the present defensive Alliance is to maintain effectually the Liberty sovereignty and Independence absolute and unlimited of the said United states As Well in matters of government As of this stipulation was observed by France article Viand at the end the object for which the United states entered into the Alliance was attained. Article i. Contained a guarantee in these words a the two parties guarantee mutually from the present time and forever against All other Powers to wit the United states to his most Christian majesty the present possessions of the Crown of France in America As Well As those which it May acquire by the future treaty of this was followed by a stipulation on the part of France of the Tenor of the second article already quoted with a like stipulation As to territory that Tho United states might acquire during the War. When Napoleon came to the head of affairs in France and when a state of hostilities existed Between England and France the Commerce of America became the prey of both parties upon the suspicion that our vessels were engaged in contraband Trade the treaty of 1794 with England gave offence to France and upon the ground that it contained stipulations which were in contravention of the treaty of 1778. On that treaty and on the decrees of the French authorities touching our Commerce we were brought to the verge of War with France and by an act of Congress of july 7,1798, the treaty of 1778 was annulled. Then came Crim nations and claims from each party resting on our part on the destruction of our Commerce and on the part of France on our disregard of the allegations and duties imposed by the treaty of 1778. In the year 1800 the plenipotentiaries of the two countries framed a convention of peace Commerce and navigation a but As they were unable to concur in a Mode of adjusting the antagonistic claims of the two countries they agreed by the second article to postpone negotiations a upon the indemnities mutually due or claimed to a More Quot convenient in february 1801, the Senate of the United states advised the ratification of the convention upon the condition that the second article should be expunged and an article limiting the treaty to eight years should be inserted in its place. Bonaparte first Consul accented the change proposed by the Senate subject to the addition of these words a provided that by this retrenchment the two states renounce the respective pretensions which Are the object of the said thus arid in this manner Tho negotiations ended Aud on the 19th of december 1801, the Senate of the United states declared that the convention was fully ratified upon these historical facts this question was submitted to the court of claims did the United states by the treaty of 1801 assume the payment of such valid claims As citizens of the United states had theretofore held against the government of France on this question the decision of the court was against the United states. On the question of liability the claimants were required to prove the Validity of their claims As against France. Of the aggregate of about thirty two millions petitions representing nearly eighteen millions have been dismissed for Lack of evidence due largely to the length of time since the events occurred. Judgments have been rendered to the amount of one million and three fourths. And there Are claims pending which aggregate about twelve million dollars the total amount recovered and to be recovered cannot exceed seven millions and it May even fall below six millions. At the end it May be said that these claims in the judgments that May be rendered. Will represent the Only Money paid or satisfaction of any sort Given by the education North and South. The latest bulletin of the census office deals with the statistics of education. It contains some comparisons which will be interesting to those who for political reasons sneer at the South for its alleged backwardness in schooling and intimate that there is an increasing tendency to illiteracy in that Section. On the contrary the census report shows Shatas a Rule the Southern states Are making More Progress than the Northern in the matter of Public school attendance. For instance Maine and Louisiana have both increased in population during the last ten years but in Maine Tho Public school enrolment has actually fallen off More than 7 per cent., while in Louisiana it has increased 53.52 per cent. New Hampshire too shows a falling off of 7va per cent in the number of Public school scholars although its population has increased 8 Viper cent. In Massachusetts the Public school enrolment has increased but not As fast As Tho population the figures being 17.33 percent and 25.57 per cent respectively. In Connecticut the population has increased about 19/ per cent but the Public school attendance Only about 6mi per cent. In Vermont the population has remained stationary since 1880, hut the school children Are less numerous by 10.42 per cent than they were to years ago Rhode Island is the Only new England state that shows a relative increase of Public education and there it is Only about 2 a per cent with the exception of Rhode Island every Northern state East of the Mississippi River As far As the returns have been Given out by the census office shows either a positive lass of Public school membership or else a relative loss compared with the gain in population. On the other hand every Southern state so far As published shows both a positive and a relative gain for the Public schools. In Maryland the population has increased 11.49 percent., and the schools 22.85. In North Carolina the percentage of increase of population and scholars is 15.59 and 27.08 respectively in South Carolina 15.63 and 50.89, and in Virginia 9.48 and 55.06. Such figures show that till South is making Earnest efforts to educate her children and is succeeding at a most Gratifying rate. They also show that in nearly All the Northern states the percentage of illiteracy is either increasing or else the proportion of children in the population is decidedly smaller than it was 10 years ago. One Horn of the dilemma is about As unpleasant As the other. And As this state assumed the collection of the tax in the first instance and did not leave it to be collected directly from its citizens it will be for the legislature first to accept the appropriation Aud then to decide what shall he done with it. The direct tax refunding act. Judging from several inquiries addressed to the Globe since its passage by Congress a few Days since the direct tax refunding act is not As clearly understood As it should be. Under an act of Congress approved aug. 5, 1861, a direct tax of $20,000,000 was levied upon the real estate of the 43 states and territories then comprised in the Union. That act authorized the states to assume the collection and payment of this tax and to pay it Over to the Treasury of the United states withholding 16 percent to cover the Cost of collection. Under that provision of the act nearly All of the Northern states including Massachusetts paid Over the proportion of the $20,000,000 levied upon their real estate loss the 15 per cent allowed them for collection. Of course the eleven seceding states of the South did not assume Tho tax but the Federal collectors enforced the Levy upon their citizens As far As practicable collecting about $2,250,-000 from them tile balance of the tax assessed against the states then in rebellion amounting to about $2,.500,, has never been collected. Under the Bill just passed All Tim Money thus collected in 1862 is to be refunded to each state Aud territory from which it was collected or to individual citizens in such states As did not assume the collection of the tax. All moneys still due to the Federal government infertile act of 1861 Are remitted and relinquished the treasurer of the United states is directed to pay Back each states quota of the direct Tux to the governor thereof. And where any part of the direct tax Levy of 1861-62 was collected by the United states from the citizens or inhabitants thereof the Money refunded is a to be held in Trust by such state for the Benefit of those persons or inhabitants from whom they were collected or their Legal All claims under the Trust thus created must be filed with the governor of the state in which the claim arises within six years after the passage of the act. By another provision of the refunding act no Money will be paid Over to any state or territory until the legislature thereof shall have accepted by Resolution the sum appropriated to it and the trusts imposed a in full satisfaction of All claims against the United states on account of the Levy Aud collection of said tax and shall have authorized the governor to receive said Money for the use Aud purposes aforesaid a the amount of direct tax collected from each state and territory in 1862, Aud now to be refunded under the conditions named is stated in the following table foolish foreigners. The annual report of the chief of the Bureau of statistics of the Treasury department for 1890 has recently been issued. If the protectionist notion that the foreigner pays the Tariff tax is True this report proves that the foreigners Are the greatest fools that Over did business it shows that they pay More for privilege of Selling their goods in this Market than the goods Are Worth. It is probable that the statistician himself did not see Tho effect of his figures. He furnishes a partial list of the articles imported into this country with the Price paid to the foreign seller Ana the duty paid to the United states. A few extracts from this table will be interesting to those who think the foreigner pays the tax duty paid by imported Coit paid by foreigner ? article american to to United 1800. Foreigner. States.

How a a a tis easy As if a foreign dealer will sell Santonino for instance at $1.29 a Pound and give the buyer $3 in Gold with each Pound to pay the duty with there is nothing to prevent the american buyer from purchasing All the Santonino in the world that he can on these terms and after it leaves the foreign port he is free to dump the Santonino itself overboard and Only bring in the $3 in Gold which the foreign seller has Given him to pay the duty. The Ordinary american buyer would bring in no Santonino he would simply bring in the $3 Ingold. That would give him a profit of $1.71 per Pound for dumping the foreign product overboard. There is no duty on the Gold. Tile government never asks a Man to pay any duty unless he brings in the foreign product.

H. B. The need of better roads. If a Highway furnishes the surest evidence of an existing civilization to which it conducts it likewise supplies the proof of the nearness of those Active industries and untiring enterprises which constitute modern civilizations surest support. The new York state association for the improvement of roads recently in session at Syracuse has petitioned the legislature for an expenditure of $10,000,000 for Road improvement on the system proposed in the Richardson Bill of the last session the taxation for the outlay to be extended Over a term of 18 years and the agricultural population to Bear no More than its proportionate share of the Cost. This request is made chiefly in the agricultural interest of the state the farms being valued at one thousand million dollars and their annual products at one Hundred and Twenty millions. In the Case of new England it is not the agricultural interest Only or chiefly but the manufacturing and general Industrial interests combined with it that demands for the fullest and freest development of them All the systematic improvements of the common roads with a View to Complete inter communication at the least Cost the Farmer is not More heavily taxed in Wear and tear add lass of time in consequence of unfit and difficult roads Over which to haul his products to the Railroad and the Market than the manufacturer and manager of mechanical industries for the same reason. It would not be easy to estimate Tho amount of actual loss from them All every year by reason of the useless waste of horse Power the Wear of vehicles of every kind the delay caused by constant obstruction and the dissipation of Energy that might if saved be directed to the common Good in which the w Hole Community Are legitimate sharers and participants.

Nearly four generations of French spoliation claimants have waited sighed and died in anticipation of a settlement and now it has come after nearly a Century. Justice seems to move at a cold molasses Pace where there Are no politics in it. The democrats of the Maine legislature shed Lustre on democracy by their heroic efforts to pass the ballot Reform Bill. The voters will Reward them later. Comstock should suppress the Mckinley Tariff. In Many sections notably in furs and lumber it discriminates in favor of what is no wonder the boys Are deserting the farms when a Good industrious band can make $3500 a season As a base Ball Pitcher. As was to have been expected the dec Hon of Gen Palmer As United states senator from Illinois has caused him to be a a mentioned for the presidency. But As he is 75 years old the mention will probably go no further. The same reason that disqualifies Allen Cranberry Thurman disqualifies John Mccauley Palmer. Gov. Morris of Connecticut should appoint the same fast Day As sex gov. Bulkeley. Then democrats and republicans can last together by eating the usual Good dinner. It is pretty Safe to predict that the Hon. Henry Watterson will never be postmaster general in the Cabinet of president Hill. It is a pretty Small politician nowadays who Hasni to got a Little secret presidential Boom packed away and waiting for emergencies.
