H-H-I'l 1 ! 1111 II Mil ! 1 1 1 ll1 II H"1"I"1"1"1"1"I"I-1"H- Our government Is founded upon the theory that It is self government by the people, but our system of delegated powers, with its attendant caucuses and conven tlons and elect Ion contests, results In mere government by party "bouses." Self gov ernment is, Indeed, but an ideal, towards which all modern governments are tend ing. As vet, it is not a reality In any coun try. The little republic of Switzerland is, however, nearer the goal of democratic perfection than any other nation. The main reason why we do not have a full und comprehensive system of self government In this country is because a large body of our peoplo are not yet believers in self gov ernment, or, if they do Relieve In it, their interests are opposed to its realization. The commercial classes, and the professional men, and the politicians who are ...

THE ADVOCATE AND NEWS. S BATTLESHIP MAINE SDHK A Terrible Explosion Wrecks the Big Boat in Havana Harbor. Some time ago the United States bat tleship Maine was ordered to Havana. It waa cordially received and waa lying at anchor in the harbor, when It was wrecked by a terrible explosion at 9:43 on the night of Tuesday, February 15. The vessel was absolutely ruined and of the crew of 354 persons but ninety-six escaped with their Uvea. The loss of life was extremely heavy because most of the men were below in their berths, asleep. The vessel sank almost imme diately, giving these men no opportunity to escape, the electric lights having gone out with the first shock. Captain Sigsbee and all of the officers but two escaped. Several of these were absent from the ship, being in attendance at a dinner on the City of Washington, which waa lying in the harbor also. As to the cause of the explosion the captain was very guarded and would only say: "I cannot determine the cause; but competent i...

5 1853. THE ADVOCATE AND NEWS. Advantages in Wide Tires. The average cost of moving a ton one mile over our country roads 13 25 cents, and to move a ton ten miles it will cost 2, or 20 cents per mile, and thla does not include the driver's time. The av erage distance of our farms from their local market or mill is ten miles. The average price of wheat on the farm la 10 cents less than it is at the local mill or market. This seems to indicate be yond all doubt that the average cost of transporting wheat from the farm to the nearest market is 10 cents por bushel, and this is about 20 per cent, of the price of wheat at the average local mill. Now it costs 10 cents a bushel to haul thla wheat because the roads are poor, and if the roads were good the average coat of hauling would be cut in two and thus 10 per cent, would be saved to the farmer. This saving would not only ap ply to wheat, but everything the farmer sella or buys. It Is fair to say that the saving made by good roads in a f...

A notable fact and coincidence in the history of this country is the beginning of our exports of manufactured goods and the end of the protective tariff pol icy of Great Britain. In 1845 the first exportation of cotton goods from New England mills to the warehouses of Old England took place, and at that very time the British government had con cluded that It was time to open their ports freely to the trade of the world. The policy of levying "customs" du ties, first as a means of raising revenue for the Crown, and secondly as a means of protection to local tradesmen and manufacturers, had long been in vogue In England and was maintained by strin gent legislation, but the time had come when it was necessary to import corn (as wheat and maize were then known in England) to feed the growing popula tion; and as the competiti...
