TUESDAY, JANUARY 11, 1897. WHAT McKIHXE Y WILL DO. A dispatch from Canton to the York Evening- Post outlines some of the features of the incoming- puoiican aammistration. it says "The president-elect has clear and positive views on all questions of national finance, and he expresses them frankly to callers who bring up the subject. It must be a relief to him to receive a caller now and then who wants to discuss meas ures instead of men. At all events he seems to be if possible a trifle more cordial toward such callers than toward the self-seeking- major- ity. The views of. Major McKinley on financial questions will no doubt be shared bv all the members of his cabinet. There will thus be a definite and positive administration policj', which will be recommended to congress, known to express the ...

THE STARS' POPULATION. If There -4re Beings on Xars, Tney Save Queer I-cnga. The discovery of the pMLosopher's stone, supposing- that phrase to im ply a working- scheme for transmnt ing an inferior metal into gold, ould probably produce nothing beyond a period of terrible econom ic confusion, or perhaps a -vast p-nfl disastrous, because overrapid, trans fer of property, but the attainment of certainty that sentient beings "with corporeal incasements, acting by effort and. not by pure voKtion, existed in any one other planet would only enlarge the range of human thought and the force of the human imagination. Such a cer tainty would either increase to an extraordinary degree the reverence for the Creator for we are all so limited that we reverence powers which we see exerted more tfm-n powers which we know in theory must exist or would compel mate rialists to revise and. widen their whole theory of the relation of mat ter to TmiKj. it being evident that sentience couM exist under con...

FRIDAY, JANUARY 15, 1897. The farmer who does not boom the sugar beet stands m his own way to success. This industry, which has passed the experimental stage m Nebraska, will be the means of making this one of the most prosperous states in the Union. The business of farming in Spain is so much depressed that the gov ernment is about to devote $1,200, 000 to the relief of that industry. It will be a decided benefit to Spain when it ceases to rely on rich col onies for support and learns to make the best of its own resources. One of the results of a Greater New York will be the wiping out of fifty-four postmasters, most of which pay a good salary. Proba bly more men will be needed to han dle the mails m the same territory but many towns and villages will miss their old time political d...

KILLS PMDETG BILL. DEFEATED IN THE HOUSE BY AN IN DIRECT, BUT DECISIVE VOTE. Pinal Vote Taken On Motion to Engross the Hill For a Third Time An Impas sioned Speech by Senator stills In Favor of Recognition of Cuban Independence. "Washington, Jan. 12. The Pacific railway funding bill went to its doom in the house Monday under an adverse majority of 60. The friends of the measure, who had predicted its passage up to the last moment,5were surprised by the decisive character of their defeat. They had been led to hope from the votes on the substitutes that the bill had more than an even chance of passage. The Bell substitute provided that if the Union Pacific and Central Pacific would clear off the first mortgage and advance the government lien, the government would extend the indebtedness at 3 per cent yeas, 110; nays, 158. The Harrison substitute provided for a committee to negotiate a settlement of the debt. It was rejected by a vote of yeas, 55; nays, 214. Many of the mem bers were a...

IRA BAGS' EliaoKAxnE;oar.:K2iK,! .... Enteral uttis Ju.r n-VmH n t- FRIDAY. JANUARY i 17 Senator Stewart, of Kevada, bobs up with a proposition to bold a presidential election every two years. This leads the Globe-Dem ocrat to remark that the Senator is an Apache on the trail of legimate trade, and his silver tomahawk is never jdle. It is in order to remind some critics that the republican party is not responsible for the present con dition of public affairs. But if anr body wants to speak about the next administration, or the next after that, the republicans are ready to assume the pressure. Ex. It is an odd fact that the Colo rado senate has issued an order ex cluding- women from the floor during- business hours. The women of Colorado are full-fledged voters, and the day may come when they will have a majority in tbe legisla ture. The precedent established may then be awkward. While Joaquin Miller was walking- along- the street in Seattle re cently, a man approached him, and, with...

SKETCHES BY M. QUAD An Ace Setter. One day there arrived at Prairie City a man from Grizzly Gulch a bold, bad man, with long hair, a voice like the roar of a lion and a terrible thirst for xich red blood. He stood on the public squru and whooped till he crew a cr i! Then he flung down his hat and criwc? out that Grizzly Gulch was full of b'ars and rattlesnakes and ccntipeds and alligators, but that every varmint and reptile fled in terror at sonnd of ha i footsteps. He said he had been scalped by Indians, run over by wild horseE, struck by lightning, pursued by a prairio fire and drawn down by quicksands, but ho still lived and was hungry for hu man ears fried in bacon grease. When things went his way, ho was as good natured as a baby and would go a milo out of his way rather than disturb a Bleeping coyote, but when things went wrong, then look out! He could remem ber the names of 21 men he had buried, and ho had a poor memory at that. Ho was naturally a peaceful man, but once I aro...

A gOLD reserve in the national treasury of $143,000,000, and still climbing without assistance, is one of the unmistakable signs ot better times ahead. Tee total addition to the railroad mileage in the United States for the past year foots up to only 1802 miles. But the improvements have been very great for the comfort and safety of passengers. The selection of Sherman as sec retary of state is said to be very distasteful to Senator Teller. It is really too bad that McKinley did not consult the Colorado senator before asking Sherman to be the premier. Now that the Cuban insurgents have blown up a Spanish gunboat Gen. Weyler will have to be careful about conducting his infantry oper ations from a quarter-deck. The revolution is beginning to have a sta...

HER CHOICE. 2ay, but you, xho do not leve her, Is she not pure gt?d, ny siistress? There had never been any doubt as to Polly Pembertoa's beauty. She had been a young tyrant from babyhood. It had never been of the slightest use trying to keep her under. Her mother made con scientious attempts to not have her ia evidence when guests were about, and her father feebly seconded her efforts by trying to keep oat of Polly's way. The undertaking was, nevertheless, hope less. Polly, standing wistfully at the nursery window, made prudent resoln tions vanish like chaff. Polly, as Cherry F.ipe going to church, was the enchanting thing of the day. "Vvfaen newcomers firsc caught glimpses of her wheeling her doll carriage or playing with the pop, they were useless for further purposes of entertainment until the first novelty of intercourse with Polly wore off. "Her conversation alone is worth the price of admission, " condescended a cousin of Prlly's, second year at Yale. When Pally grew, horribl...
