"THECRi'lSEof the Junkutccrs" Is
a book that may te expicteil to reach
the book stalls un soon as Pittston bor

and sober up.
The Flaint of the Yankee Farmer.
.There are doubtless many farmers
within reach of The TKinrsE who,
noticing the gradual decline that has
occurred during the past ten years iu
the prices of farm products, and not
pausing to make deeper or more gen
eral inquiry into tho subject, have
come to the illogical conclusion that
they have been specially siugled out
for Impoverishment by hostile int'tu
euces expressed in legislation. These
are now hovering on the verge of a
political revolt, uncertain what they
would gain by it and perhaps iudill'cr
eut to what they would' lose. We ask
such poisons, before giving themselves
over as the sport and plaything of
Populist mountebanks, to consider
thoughtfully some homely arguments
maile in a recent speech by Governor
2selsou, of Minnesota. After showing
the unfairness ot the claim that agri
culture, has not prospered during the
la?t thirty years, Governor Nelson

Under a protective InrifFtho farmer
has experienced an increasing home
market, which consumes 80 per cent,
of the total product of our American
fauns. Had he been less partial to
wheat, which Is subject to fierce com
petition abroad, and more partial to
oats, barley, flax, hay, potatoes, cattle,
hogs, sheep, cheese, butter and eggs,
products which are In good demand at
home, he would have been better off
and there would be lcs9 cause for the
unrent that is noticeable in rural com
munities. After showing how diver
sified crops bring profit to the fanner,
Governor Nelson continued:
It, has been tho fashion of windy and
reckless reformers in the past, and I pre
sume it is still tbe faxbiou among these
men, to Insinuute and charge that our far
mers receive much les lor their wheat
here than the foreign markets warrant,
nnd thnt a large nnd unreasonable margin
of profits is absorbed by the middle man or
exporter, and hence comes the exceedingly
low price. Those who have at all been
versed In the subject have known and al
ways maintained that these charges and
iuidunationt have been unfounded and
false. Fortunately, proof positive Is now
at hand. The Minnesota legislature of
1BV3 directed the board of railroad and
warehouse commissioners to ascortnlu and
compile, from time to time, and to publish
in weekly bulletin tbe price of grain in
foreign markets and tn our own,
mid the rates of transportation ba
tweon snch markets, for the purpose of
ascertaining the'differencoln price between
here and abroad, the cost of transporta
tion and tbe profits of the middleman or
exporter. From a statetnsnt aompiltd
from tbe bulletins Issued by the board (or
tha mouths of November. WJ3, and May
and June, 1894 months when water trans
portation was open and availableand when
tha greatest volume of wheat was moving
it appear that the average price of
wheat during these months was 6a 84c. per
liuabel at Dulutb and 76.40c. per busheljat
Liverpool a groes difference of 15.03c be
tweeu the foreign and doineetlo market,
nnd that tbe exporter, after paying insur
ance, transportation ratoa and elevator
charges, bad a net margin of profit of 1.04c.
per bushel. This roughly explodes the old
ciimpuign falsehood of a margin of from
16c. to 20c. par bushel to the middleman or
In concludlug thlB portion of live
lucid and convincing speech, Gover
nor Nelson noted tho fact that lu 1HP3
the United BtaUjs exported 10,000,1X10
bushes of wheat. Argentine exported
31,000,000 bushels, India exported iV,
000,000 buslielH, Australia exported 10,
000,000 bushels, Chill exported 4,000,
000 bushols, Canada exported 5,000,000
bushels, a totaliof a,(K3O,C00 bushels.
Nearly all of this wheat was shipped
to western Europe and I here It caineiu
competition with l.'0,OOit,0(H) bushels
of surplus wheat exported from
Hungary, Russia and cho Halliau
slates. These ligures sorve to show
bow the American wheat farmers,
with their surplus of 120,000,000 bushels
have to contend iu the markets of
Europe with a surplus of "S0,(K!O,
000 bushels from other count t ies.
Manifestly relief from this country
must come mainly from two sources:
inciv '.st'd home demand and loss pro
duction. Less production must
come through diversified farm
ing and increased home demand
through the maintenance of a judic
ious protective tariff, whereby tho
army of consumers may be enlarged
and equipped with ample means
through profitable employment. Capi
tal must furnish labor work, and both
combined must furnish the farmer his
home market. The American fanner
cannot rule to prosperity on a political
wave which assumes things which
are not true viz; that he is intention
ally oppreseed, that the losses which
he has experienced have been the re
sult of political conspiracies plauncd
against his welfare, und that the ny
to set him up again is to pull the in
dustries and the railroads and the
urban workinginen down. Justice
knows no favorites and no favored
classes. Law in this country must be
general not special. Prosperity must
come to the masses, and not to certain
classes, as a result of pillage or extor
tion. The main diflietilty with Mr. Vand
ling and the local Democracy 6oems to
be tho former's inability to regulate ths
civil service in accordance with tho
Ideas of small fry who desire to share

Tub IJKrrm.iCANH of Luzerne
county do well to ''denouuee tbe Dem
ocratic pretense of reform which, iu
practice, puts party above patriotism
and uses office for personal ends; which
banks on its federal control through
the solid vote of a section welded to
gether by memories of a common trea
son to the republic 'with all which
that implies' iu taxation, expenditure
and administration; which coddles to
every shifting phase of popular finance,
and which demeans itself to march
under every banner that promise a
vote." This is a savere characteriza
tion; but the presence in politics of
men like "Hilly" limes makes it just.

In 1397 Baltimore will celebrate
the centenary of her incorporation
with a centennial exposition. This
affair will bo equal iu many respects
to the World's fair and will contain all
tlie side features of attraction that
made visitors to Chicago forget the
regular exhibition. The location of
the city being midway between the
north and south, the city has many
advantages as a meeting place for peo

groom lo look ut the mariiiiijo license. Tlie
young man, who hud nevnr heard of such
a dreuuient, was staggered when informed
that the reremony couid not proceed with
oin a liconse. Hut ho was not slow to act.
In a few moments tho youth and his pros
pective bride were speeding behind ii f'ist
Iioise in the direction of Montrose, while
the guests and mi u inter waited.
The bridegroom appeared beforo the
justice breuthless nnd explained the situa
