Coiint^ Finances tbaij f- Would *4 4- pSSfe The Morrison county Democrat of September 20. contains an article headed "Who Lies," und it pretends -bo be a statement about the finances of Morrifcon county. We cannot be­ lieve that any newspaperman would construct the absurd tables of figures there presented, and certainly no official will dare father them as being a fair statement in the matter. There is a good deal of opportunity to juggle figures in county finances, and puzzle the careless reader, b.y rea­ son of the peculiar system of over­ drafts carried in some funds. Money paid to the county treasurer for some funds has been used to pay orders drawn on other funds, and it there­ fore takes some investigation to show how any fund stands. Kebuses and puzzles form entertain­ ing parts of many publications. When a person has opportunity to study such literatur...

The Kessella's are probably the most quarrelsome set of Polish jjeople in the county and they are familiar objects in the justice and district court. Only last March John was acquitted by the jury of firing a charge of shot into a wagon load of people. When the shot was fired .it was pretty dark but fine snot were found in the end gate of the wagon next morning The trial cost the county a good deal of money as Kessella jumped his bail and was finally caught and brought back. Report of Grand Jmy. The grand jury visited the county jail, and in their report, they rec­ ommended something that they have called attention to several times before, viz. providing some way for getting prisoners out incase of fire. It should be done at once. Following is the report: To the County Commissioners...

Jacob Stenzel of the Pittsburg team jumped into prominence at the end of last season by earning the honor of lead­ ing batsman of the National league for 2893. The distinction was the more nota­ ble from the fact that he was a young blood who came among the veteran bats­ men in the midst of the season from a minor organization and was comparative­ ly new to notable pitchers of the various League teams. I believe it is the first instance in the 19 years of the National league's record where a newly imported gear carried off the batting honors from the older players. But Stenzel was not a stayer. He has shown no ability this year to maintain his position at the head of the batting list. While no official data is obtainable to dem­ onstrate exactly where he does stand in the list at this late day in the season, enough unofficial informatio...

The accident happened shortly before 7 a. m. and was the re­ sult of a well laid plan to ditch the en­ tire train. Happily the heavy Pullman sleeper kept on the track and the mail and baggage cars, although badly wrecked, did not contain any victims. F. N. Smith, engineer, Toledo, was killed and A.

As a consequence of this, silver circulated money, while gold did not. In other words, though nominally a bi-metaliic country, France was in actual fact a mono­ metallic country that is, she had silver mono-metallism. V! About 1850, as you all know, there were great gold discoveries in Russia, Austra­ lia and California. The actual production of gold leaped within a year or two from an average of a little more than $13,000,000 to an average 4f about $133,000,000. As a consequence, the value of gold fell. Before 1851 an ounce of pure gold was worth more than 151-2 ounces of pure sil­ ver but for the succeeding 16 years, an ounce of gold was worth less than 151-2 ounces of silver. During those years, tnerefore, it was ...

The advocates of the new tariff bill have made two claims in its behalf. [They have asserted that it would great­ ly facilitate importations, and that this would result in reducing the cost of goods to the consumer. It does not re­ quire a prophetic eye to discern that their claims are the strongest indict­ ments that can be brought, against the "splendid nothing." Here is the logic in the c&se: The greater the importa­ tion, the less the demand for home prod­ ucts. The less the demand for goods pro iduced at home, the smaller the amount (manufactured.

Mr. Curtin had been in feeble health for some weeks, but his condition grew serious on Thursday last, and from that time he sank rapidly. Death was caused by old ago—the ex-governor being in his 80th year—combined with nervous ANDREW O. CUUTIN. trouble which, upon reaching the vital point in the brain, ended his life.

WASHINGTON, Oct. 9.—The officials of the state and agricultural depart­ ments are much interested in the re­ ported purpose of Germany to retaliate against the United States because of the special discriminating duty im­ posed on sugar from export bounty pay­ ing countries by discriminating against our meat and breadstuffs. "It "will be very unfortunate," said Dr. D. E. Salmon, chief of the bureau of animal industry, discussing the re­ port, "as $he German markets have been opened to us after a good deal of trouble.

BHAMOKIN, Pa., Oct. 10.—One work­ man dead and four others enclosed in the mine with all avenues of escape cut off, and the most disastrous mine fire ever known in the Western anthracite coal fields, now raging at the Luke Fiedler colliery, is the result, in brief, of a carpenter's negligence. Fifty-five other workmen who were employed in the mine at the time of the accident, had thrilling escapes, as they were com­ pelled to grope their way through smoke and noxious gases in order to reach the fresh air and safety. The four men who are still missing have been smothered before this, as all parts of the big mine are certainly filled with Smoke and Deadly Afterdamp. The fire started in the airway of No. 1 shaft and Irving Buffington, whom the colliery people hold responsible for the disaster, is dead. His body was not bur...
