Economic Argument against Saloons [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 8 February 1896
Economic Argument against Saloons I l POSITION to saloons is usually put on moral vy grounds , ft is the temperance societies or the a _ -ain f ~? urches which are relied upon to wage the war of th • But entirely aside from the moral elements norni 6 ^ Hestlon tnere are ample grounds from an econic point of view for throttling the liquor business . GenrT „? me £ s « res &gt; n a Philadelphia paper , supplied by tion it • ¦ j . Powe 11 of the National Reform organiza- &gt;« is indicated that the trade in intoxicants , more than all other curses combined , is at the bottom of hard times . The assertion is made that no matter which side of the silver and tariff questions is taken , the gross amount involved in them both together is not a quarter of the retail intoxicant trade of our country . Analysis of United States customs and internal revenue returns on malt , fermented and distilled liquor , shows $ 900 , 000 , 000 to be a pretty fair figure . But this represents o...

Good Law [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 8 February 1896
Good Law THE Indiana Supreme Court , which is composed of both Republicans and Democrats and is doubtless entirely non-partisan and above political motives in its decisions , has given a blow to gerrymandering which ought to be made good law in every state of the Union . The court was in session at Indianapolis , and on January 30 th and by a unanimous decision in what is known as the legislative apportionment case , set aside the apportionment act of 1895 , reaffirmed the decision of the same court setting aside the apportionment of 1891 , and brought into operation the apportionment of 1885 , which if declares to be the only legal act since that date . The decision is far-reaching in its effects .
Lunacy vs . Idiocy [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 8 February 1896
Lunacy vs . Idiocy THE advocates of out-and-out bimetallism are called silver lunatics by the brainy gold-bugs , who borrow their financial theory from England . A lunatic , however , may once have had a sound mind in a sound body . But such idiocy as shown in some of the reasoning of the followers of Rothschild &amp; Co . fits a man for the asylum for natural imbeciles . It would be an insult to respectable lunatics to class them , for example , with a person who could write such stuff as we find in the TimesHerald under the head of Free Silver Coinage for Export . This brilliant writer says , the condition of Mexico is not one which advocates of free silver can afford to offer for emulation by the people of the United States . Of the total population of more than 12 , 000 , 000 , probably not more than 10 per cent , can read and write . In 1892 the entire sum spent on education was $ 3 , 332 , 192 , contributedby the federal government , the municipality of Mexico , the st...
Relief for the Armenians [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 8 February 1896
Relief for the Armenians THE Chicago Armenian Relief Committee has organized a systematic presentation of the Armenian cause in the whole Northwest . Invitations have been sent to ministers of all denominations , inviting all to join in the presentation of the needs of Armenia February 9 th , making it Armenia Day in all the churches . Favorable responses have been received and large results may reasonably be expected . Already about $ 5 , 000 has been sent from Chicago , besides some amounts through eastern committees . That these funds will be administered economically the following facts will show Some 40 , 000 persons are now being fed in Armenia at the rate of ten cents per week each . Miss Barton is going without using for her own expenses any of the funds raised for Armenian relief . The missionaries and others who are distributing relief in Turkey are doing it without compensation , so that the only expense is that of exchange , a few cents on a thousand dollars . Relief , t...
Spain Favors England [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 8 February 1896
Spain Favors England THE Secretary of the Venezuelan . Commission is to sail for Europe to look into the archives of Holland and of Spain . Before determining the boundary line between British Guiana and Venezuela it is necessary to know what the old records show as to the previous ~ ownership . Word comes that the president wants the ¦ commission to move right on in the investigation . There is no disposition to suspend it as at one time was ruanored . A report was circulated that Spain would object to r Secretary Prevosts inspection of her archives , but this the Spanish minister denies . It is however true that Senor de Lome , the Spanish • minister , thinks it quite likely his government will wish _ r _ to have the request for access to the archives come through Venezuela , and it may also wish first to learn if ^ Great Britain has any objection to such examination by , representatives of the United States . This sounds a little . finicky . It would not be good policy , just now...
Blood Thicker than Water [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 8 February 1896
Blood Thicker than Water S ENATOR Walcptt of Colorado made an elo T quent plea in the senate in a late debate for the principle of arbitration and opposed to what is generally termed the jingo policy . He did not believe there would be a war on account of Venezuela because Great Britain , the senator thought , would yield the whole controversy rather than face the horrors of such a war over such a question . - Whatever of advancement , continued the senator , and of progress for the human race the centuries shall bring us must largely come through the spread of the religion of Christ and the dominance of the English-speak-ing peoples , and wherever you find , both you find communities where freedom exists and law is obeyed . Blood is thicker than water , and until some just quarrel divides us , which heaven forbid , may these two great nations of the same speech and lineage and traditions stand as brothers , shoulder to shoulder , in the interest of humanity , by their union compell...

Current Topics General Runyon , our Ambassador to Germany , died suddenly at Berlin January 27 . He early took the field from New Jersey when the War of the Rebellion broke out He had always been a democrat and is one of the rare instances where the office sought the man . His appointment by President Cleveland came to him as a surprise . He was seventy-three years of age . On Monday the two new senators from Utah took the oath and were assigned their seats . The seats in the senate chamber are divided into three classes , according to expiration of terms . One of the Utah senators will be in the 1897 class and one in that of 1899 . The class assignment is by lot . If Mr . Dupont , of Delaware , comes in , there will be ninety senators , thirty in each class . Senator Gorman of Maryland declines to be a delegate to the Democratic Convention at Chicago . He says Maryland is becoming a manufacturing state and favors protection . The Republican vote increased from 79 , 954 in 1893 t 0 ...

Practical Farming [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 8 February 1896
Practical Farming Some Comparisons of Prices IN debating whether to feed more corn and less hay , or vice versa , it is well to bear in mind that corn at 30 cents per cwt is equivalent to hay at $ 6 per ton , and corn at 40 cents per cwt . is the same as hay at $ 8 per ton . In Kansas and Nebraska , however , the farmer is compelled to compare his corn on the cob with coal . At 14 cents per bushel , the price at which P . D . Armour has been buying , for storage in cribs along the railways , corn would be equivalent to coal at about $ 4 per ton . Cassava culture TO the Editor : I have been requested to write for publication some facts pertaining to the planting and cultivation of cassava ; and also to give my experience with respect to its value as food for domestic animals . As the selecting of suitable ground is the first consideration , permit me to say that the highest and most porous soil , well supplied with barnyard , or nitrogenous , manures is almost a necessity for a full ...
