Cretfllnhle Work of the Administra
tion Shown In (he Tres»-
ury Department.
Not the least remarkable of the
achievements of the present national
government at Washington is found
in its skillful and accurate adjustment
of the nation's revenues to the na
tion's expenses. The success with
which this has been done, both in
peace and war. stands out in striking
contrast with the failure of the dem
ocratic government of the preceding
years. An examination of the official
figures for the last year shows a re
markable accuracy in making the rev
enues meet the disbursements of the
treasury through the Dingley tariff
and allied sources, and an examination
Df the figures for the month of August
shows the same thing with regard to
the war revenues.
For purposes of clearer comparison
it will he helpful to separate the pro
visions tor peace times and those for
war expenses and to reduce each to
daily averages. As the postal service
is almost exactly self-supporting, it
may be left out of the calculation.
Exclusive of this, the government ex
penditures have for several years aver
aged a little less than $1,000,000 a day,
so that a revenue of that amount suf
ficed to meet peace expenses at the
start and provide a slight surplus as
the population increased. The act of
1897 was intended to yield about $190,-
000.000 in customs, averaging $520,000
daily; $157,000,000 internal revenue,
averaging $430,000 daily; and about s22j
-000,000 miscellaneous receipts, aver
aging about SOO,OOO daily—a total of
$1,010,000 daily. When war broke out
it was judged that at least $138,000,000
should be added to the yearly revenues,
or $378,000 daily, these being the fig
ures given by Chairman Dingley in his
estimate of what the war tax would
yield. This was expected to raise the
total internal revenue to SBOB,OOO daily,
and the total income of the govern
ment to $1,388,000 daily.
How closely the actual receipts have
approximated these calculations is
notv shown in the official returns for
August, the second month after the
new act went into force. The follow
ing table explains itself:
Amounts expr-cted. Aetiml.
Dallv. 31 days, receipts.
Customs $ $520,000 $Hi,l2<ViPO $W,24P.W9

Totals $1,388,000 $43,028,000 $41,782,706
The internal revenue and miscel
laneous receipts are naturally small
er in August than in July or in other
months which include quarterly pay
ments. The internal revenue for July
was $20,171,000, making the average
$25,003,000 monthly. The miscellaneous
receipts for July also bring tlie month
ly average in that department up to
£2.012.000, so that in each branch the
calculations are surprisingly sus
tained by the actual results. Customs
receipts naturally fell off a little dur
ing the war, but August, the first
month of peaceful commerce, shows
receipts slightly in excess of the cal
culations. Taking all branches to
gether, the income and outgo have
maintained a steady and reassuring
balance alike in peace and war, thus
laying a solid foundation for the re
turn of confidence and for a firm be
lief in the practical business ability of
lhe republican party.
This large revenue in August,coupled
with the receipts from the popular
bonds sold by the treasury, caused the
receipts to exceed the expenditures
during the month. The cost of run
ning the government and the war in
August was $36,200,717, yet $22,358,025
was added to the cash in the treasury.
A part of this was necessarily with
drawn from circulation by the buy
ers of bond's, but the large deposits in
the national banks fully offset this,
and the $17,101,799 decrease in circula
tion during the month was not felt—
for the good and sufficient reason that
the money still in the bands of the
people was $1,792,090,545, or $23.90 per
capita. After this month there wll
be no more payments to make on the
war bonds, and the treasury reserve,
which has been piling up unnecessar
ily high, will probably be pulled down
a little by continued war expenses. In
the end the expenditures will come re
markably close to balancing the re
ceipts. It is no mean triumph of
statesmanship togo through a war
without a hitch or jar in the nation's
finances.—Chicago Tribune.
Antl-Pro*|>erlty Bryant ten.
August is almost always a dull busi
ness month. Last August was a wot
able exception. The clearings were the
largest ever known in that month.
They exceeded by 23 per cent, those
of 1892. There have not been for five
years as few failures in any one month
as in that which closed last week. As
one of the commercial agencies puts
it: "Business is larger than in the
best of all past years, and yet there
is every prospect of much further in
crease." Nevertheless in a few weeks
Altgeld and' other Bryanites will be
roaming from place to place proclaim
ing to all who can spare the time to
hear them that there is no real prosper
ity and there never can be any until 44-
cent free coinage silver dollars flow
from the mints in a flood and inundate
the country. These prophets of evil
will go past busy factories, through
fertile fields from whose products the
farmers are getting good prices, and
through cities and towns where all is
activity and confidence, and will crj' out
continually: "Yet a little while and
prices will be low and laborers idle
if the country does not have cheap dol
lars and debtors are not enabled to
swindle creditors." It is no wonder
that the Bryanite orators who are
about to start out on their fall anii
prosperity crusade feel blue. They
have a terribly up-hill job of it this
year. As "the stars in their courses
fought against Sisera"so is the jubilant,
prosperity of the country fighting
against the Bryanites.—("h.'-igo Trfb

The congress which will be elected
a few weeks hence will have to deal
with more questions of great impor
tance than presented themselves to
any congress which has met since the
civil war and recons-truction days. It
will have to devise a system of govern
ment for each of our new possessions
with the possible exception of Hawaii,
which may be attended to in the com
ing short session of the present con
gress. The work of forming a per
manent army to meet the new needs
which enlarged territory will impose
may possibly be transacted in the com
ing four months' session of the exist
ing congress, but the chances are that
it will go over to the next body. Then,
too, a staff organization for the army
in line with modern requirements will
have to be devised. The old issue of
the staff and line wrangle in the navy
will have to be settled, and a new sys--

Work enough to keep a congress
busy during nearly all of its term,
aside altogether from the routine
business of the government, has here
been cited. The task of framing gov
ernments which will recognize the
local capabilities and meet the pe
culiar needs of the people of Cuba,
Puerto Rico and the Philippines de
mands time and intelligence. In a
considerable degree the conditions
here arc new. Some of the peoples to
be dealt with may have to remain in
a state of dependence forever. The
full territorial status which is enjoyed
by New Mexico, Arizona and Okla
homa cannot be extended to nny of
our new possessions immediately,
though the indications are that it may
safely be given to Puerto Rico before
many more years pass. An entirely
different and a less advanced sort of a
government will have to be provided
for the Philippines. Government for
Cuba will involve some delicate ques
tions of a different order from those
which will come up in the* Puerto
liican and Philippine matters.
For the adjustment of all these com
plex questions the republican party
will be held primarily responsible.
The necessity, therefore, for the re
publicans to elect a majority of the
next house of representatives and) to
gain the two or three seats which will
give them control of the senate is par
ticularly urgent. A republican con
gress should be chosen to assist the
republican president in dealing with
these delicate issues. Not since IR7O,
when Georgia, the last of the seceded
states, was restored to her old rela
tions to the union, has congress been
called upon to deal with so many ques
tions requiring discrimination, bal
ance and tact as will present them
selves to the congress which is to be
elected a little less than two months
lience. The president in managing the
war which has brought all these
troublesome issues to the front, and in
dealing with some of them in their
rudimentary stage since the armistice
began, has shown excellent judgment.

congress elected on November 8 shall
be in partisan accord with him on

may arise.—St. Louis Globe-Democrat.

William .T. Parks, the superintend
ent, after being blown through the
window of the lower story, was con
scious for a moment and said that
about S:.'io a terrible explosion oc
curred on the south side of the eleva
tor, and that he knew there were about
20 men at work on the seven floors of
the building. Besides thi/se regularly
employed at the elevator the three
children of Superintendent Parks were
visiting him at the time. One of these
may recover from his burns, but Grace,
a 17-year-Md girl, is burned almost be
yond recognition, and Harold, the
third child, has not been found, being
either blown to atoms er cremated.
At 8:."!0 last evening the people of
East Toledo were startled by a ter
rific explosion which caused a panic
all over the neighborhood. Houses
were shaken as in an earthquake and
windows were shattered for blocks
around. Those in th« vicinity of the
Union elevator soon noticed flames
bursting from all sides of the building.
In a few minutes the fire department
began the work of rescue.
The river cut off escape on one side
and there the flames seemed to be less
fierce. The families of a dozen men
who were at work Within rushed to the
acetic, and women calling for their im
prisoned husbands, brothers and fath
ers made a scene indescribable.
The force of 20 men expected to load
80.000 bushels of grain during the
night. Not one of the entire number
could be seen in any part of the build
ing and it was impossible to reach
them in any way. William Parks was
found first. He was 20 feet from the
building, frightfully burned and his
clothing almost entirely torn ofT. He
had been hurled from his place in the
main room through a window and his
agonizing cries were most pitiful.
Arother employe, John Carr, was hurl
ed from the fifth floor of the building
and was found bleeding and burned
with many bones broken. He did not
long survive. Fireman David Kemp
and Charles Keifer, the engineer, were
found at their places in the engine
rooms. They were wounded by falling
timbers and their faces were charred
The little daughter of William
Parks was sitting at the desk in the
office at the time of the explosion and
she was hurled out of the door. She
walked down the elevation on which
the building stands and dropped down
to be carried away unconscious, suffer
ing from wounds from which she can
not recover.
' John Smith was fatally burned. He,
was literally disemboweled and was
taken to the hospital to die. The miss
ing men are doubtless all dead.
trace can be found of any of them and
as they were employed at the top of
the elevator their chances for escape
■were bu» slight.
Superintendent William Parks and
one of the unknown injured men died
early this morning of their injuries,
making the total number of fatalities
There were between 500,000 and 600,-
000 bushels of grain in store at the time.
The property and the grain is an en

oners of war the United States is per
fectly willing to provide transporta
tion. This is being illustrated at the
present by the sending of Gen. Toral'a
army back to Spain.
It is feared by officials of the ad min
istration that Spain hopes and expects
that this government will be as liberal
and provide transportation for the
Spanish armies in Cuba and I'uerto
Rico. Army and navy officers say,
however, that no such plan will be
agreed to by the military commissions
representing the United States.

The \\Hr Ia Over
And now our thoughts are all of peace and
home. There are, too often, people to be
found who have no home, and it is to them
these few words are addressed. If you real
ly want a home you can easily get one, but
you should act at once before the relapse
from the war puts prices on the advance.
In Marinette County, Wisconsin, the very
finest farming land is to be had now at a
most modest figure. P'xeellent home mar
kets are at hand to take whatever the farm
er raises, and good prices are given. Thess
lands are on the Chicago, Milwaukee & St.
Paul Railway, and full information con
cerning them will cheerfully be furnished
by 0. E. Rollins, Immigration Agent, 161
La Salle Street, Chicago.
Some people wear such good clothes all the
