IMPORTANT TO SUBSCRIBERS IN ARREARS. Parties in the city who are in arrears for theirsubscriptions to the Daily Enq.jikeh- Sun, and who desire to receive the paper after the first of January, are requested to settle their accounts before that date. This is essential to the proper conduct of busi ness, and the necessity of it is apparent to every reasonable man. People do not expect their clothers, grocers, or butchers, or shoe dealers, to furnish them articles they may desire month after month without payment, and the same rule applies to newspapers. Every account due should be settled up before the open ing of a new year. We cannot afford to furnish the paper for nothing. There are but comparatively few o? our subscribers in arrears now, and we are desirous of starting the New Year with all subscrip tions settled to date, and hence this no tice. We propose to give gratis to every sub scriber, who pays in advance for the com ing year, a complete novel by some well- known author the first of every month, making twelve novels for the year. These novels will appear in book form as a sup plement to the Enquibkr-Sun, and will only be presented to subscribers who are clear on the books for the year 1891. If the collector fails to see you on his rounds please call at the office and settle. The Eufaula Times is ripping mad be cause an advertising agency firm made it an offer to publish a lot of advertisements at about cne-sixth its regular rates, allow the agents 25 per cent commission and take the balance out in trade. Our esteemed contemporary should not lose his temper. He should have rolled the letter making this proposition into a taper and used it to light his fragrant Havana. This is the way to treat such cheeky propositions. The Times is right in advising its State contemporaries to spurn this advertising. The country press would be a great deal better off if a little independence were ex ercised in this matter. They should estab lish a fair rate for advertising and stick to it. The Savannah Council lias made her people happy by a reduction of taxes. The tax on banks has been reduced from 8 250 to $50, the wholesaler's tax from $175 to $150, aud the retailers from $40 to $30. The total reductions in specific taxes amounts to about $15,000. In addition to this, the Savannah Council has increased the salaries of the principal city officers from $150 to $300. Evidently Savannah feels prosperous and has a good surplus on hand. At the charity doll show in New York, a doll dressed by Mrs. Cleveland sold at auc tion for $115, while one dressed by Mrs. Harrison fetched $100. This is a pointer as showing the estimation in which the ex- l’resident’s wife is held. There never was a more popular mistress of the White House than charming Mrs. Cleveland. Georgia orators, when they are sum moned across Mason aud Dixon's line to the banquet halls of the effete North, should be careful to supply the home news paper? with advanced proofs of their forth coming eloquent remarks, so as to avoid any possible misunderstanding as to what they really say abroad. The chicken roost on the premises of the chief of police of Atlanta is uot a sere place for the operations of prowling dar keys. Emanuel Blalock verified this fact the other night at the cost of his life. Alaska is not on the market, but it is said that a syndicate of solid citizeus of that far-off territory are willing to give Uncle Sam $14,000,000 in $20 gold pieces for the whole tract. An ex-Zulu chief, who has been one of the attractions in a Cincinnati dime mus es n has, just been identified as Michael Dooley. The suggestion of the Enquirer-Sun iu regard to Columbus being made a signal station is generally approved. Let the move be made. The Council will settle down to a discus sion of the tax ordinance for '91 at the next regular meeting. Break off all your bad habits today, and he in trim to commence the New Year aright. The Board of Trade banquet is the laing. Good-bye 1890. WAR AGAINST PENSION SHARKS. When it dawns on the old soldiers who are on the government pension rolls, that the Republican party has maintained a system that has permitted claim agents to absorb the enormous sum of $37,000,000 in fees, with $21,000,000 still in sight for them on pending claims, there ought to be a revolution that will everlastingly smash what remains of the party of public plun der. The greatest burdens have been im posed upon the people in the name of the old soldier, but the pension shark has been the sleek beneficiary. The millions absorbed by these agents are paid by the people, and yet the people owe nothing to the sharks who have been permitted by the Republican party to stand between the government and its pensioners. Down with them! We are glad to see that, the public sentiment is becoming aroused on this question, and Congress, under pres sure, is talking about reducing the fees of the pension attorneys. But why not put a stop to the fees altogether? Why should it be necessary for the claimant to pay a middle man to collect his pension from the government? Let the pension bureau be reorganized and the whole system revised so that whatever pension is rightfully due, it will be paid the claimant without toll the sharks. THE DANA JOKE. NEW MAGAZINES. The New York Herald is amusing itself at the expense of E litor Dana, of the Sun, by urging the election of that gentleman to the United States Senate. It is a joke which the general public, doubtless, en joys fully as much as does the Herald. Possibly Editor Dana is the only one who takes it seriously, but, as the new Senator from New York will be a Democrat, the Sun Chief has about as good a chance to sit in the Senate chamber as the late Sit ting Bull, and the latter's chance may b regarded as quite slim, under all the cir cumstances. For some years, Dana’s De mocracy has been iu bady odor, and we fail to detect any recent symptoms of im provement. No alleged Democrat who has ever championed such a person as Beast Butler for the Presidency and sup ported him against the parly nominee, can ever hope to be fully forgiven or reinstated. Dana has committed other sins against the party, hut this was the unpardonable. In the meantime, there is no objection to the Herald’s continuing its sport of the old man. The editor of the Little Rock Republi can, the only Republican paper in Arkan sas, has become disgusted with his party, and the publication of the paper will be discontinued. In making this announce ment, the editor says: “We all must confess—every well in formed and candid man will confess—that the Republican party, compared to what it once was, has become the mere plaything of partisan tricksters, of few brains and smaller hearts—traders in politics for per sonal aggrandizement—for the purposes of pelf and plunder; indeed, has become lit erally a den of thieves, recalling what Christ said to the money changers who trafficked in turtle doves for gain: “Take these things hence; make not my Father’s house a house of merchandise”—about what Abraham Lincoln would say to the so-called leaders of today could he speak from the tomb, and his words and actions, while living, still say as much with burn ing rebuke; and if this be true from a na tional standpoint—and, alas! it is only too true—what hope can be found reasonable to remain iu Arkansas, or for Arkansas? From this standpoint it is simply a question too palpably absurd to be propounded.” According to the Washington correspon dent of the Chicago Herald, the “Plumed Knight” is in a bad way. This correspon dent says: “Blaine has become a veritable Machia- velli in politics. He shuts himself up at his house, denies himself to old friends, is inaccessible to Congressmen and Senators and everyone except a few favorites, and spends his whole time scheming and plan ning and hypnotizing poor Harrison. The majority of his old friends have deserted him, and for good reason, for he has re fused to help them. He will not even see them. lie is so fascinated and puffed up by what he thinks the glorious prospects of his reciprocity scheme that he is of little use in anything else. He is becoming vis ionary and impractical. He appears to be shutting his eyes, and Garrison is shutting his eyes, to the schemes and jobs that are lurking behind this reciprocity business, aud which sooner or later are bound to in volve the whole affair in a big scandal. This is the place Blaine now occupies in the administration aud our national poli tics, and I predict that when this admin istration comes to an end we shall have seen the last of him.'’ The secretaries of the United States Sen ators, who are now trying to get on the annual pay roll, get this notice in the New Y'ork Commercial Advertiser: “That was a good joke on Senator Pad- dock, but does it not point a moral or two? A man delivers—or does not deliver, for it makes no difference—a speech in the Sen ate: the official reporters sit with folded hands, or retire to chat in an ante room. When the speech is ended a messenger goes to the Senator’s room, seizes some manuscript, which proves to be the letter of a secretary to an Idaho newspaper, and rushes off to the columns of the official record. In the first place, whit kind of “reporting is this? And in the second, why are the secretaries of Senators en gaged in newspaper correspondence? Per haps the Government does not hire enough reporters; perhaps it does not pay the. sec retaries a living salary; perhaps a good plan would be to abolish the secretaries and turn their stipends over to the report ing bureau.’’ The mortality of the last Legislature was unprecedented. So far, death has not vis ited the present General Assembly, al though Senator Gill is now dangerously ill at iiis home in Lee county and may not recover. The hope will be general over the State that he may be restored to health. The Nashville American has plucked up the courage to refuse to republish the “Beautiful Snow.” Itis^nTit ascertained in what way the numerous authors of that poetical gem will wreak their vengeance on the American editor. It is reported that Governor Northen is overworking himself in the executive offiee. What’s the matter with his able lieuten ants, Major Jim Warren, Capt. Tip Harri son and Col. Stanhope Sams? Mr. Jason Gould is having his portrait painted by a French artist. The Chicago Tribune says it is uot stated how mu :h the foreigner will lose ou the job. The Atlanta Constitution is pleased to remark: „ It is but just to say that the Columbus Enquirer-Sun is an all-round good news paper, and it is evident that it is meeting with the success it richly deserves. Among greetings for the New Tear the heartiest and happiest come from the January number of the Ladies’ Home Journal. Oliver Wendell Holmes, George William Curtis, James Whitcomb Riley, George W. Childs and Will Carleton join with Henry M. Stanley, John Wanamaker, Rutherford B. Hayes, Joseph Jefferson, Lawrence Barrett, Dr. Talmage, Bishop Newman and many other well known men, to weave for the women of America a gar land of good wishes for 1891. It is a per fect treasury of kindly words and bright thoughts, and every woman should read what these great men wish for her. If this number is a fair index, the present volume of the Jo urnal will be an espec ially rich one. It is issued at $1 a year by the Curtis Publishing Company, 435 Arch street, Philadelphia. The most beautiful frontispiece ever pro duced in an American magazine appears in the January number of the Cosmopoli tan. It is a reproduction in colors of Francois Flameng’s famous picture “The Cake Seller,” and can scarcely be distin guished from the imported photogravure, which is exhibited iu the dealers windows, at the price of $7 a copy. It is one of the most charming of subjects, and is well worth framing and preservation. The Cosmopolitan has become noted of late for its frontispieces and this very much excels its previous efforts. The number contains the first of two parts of Mrs. Van Rensselaer Cruger’s new novel, Mademoisellee Reseda, pronounced by critics who have read it the best of her work. Mrs. Cruger is a woman who is in timately acquainted with fashionable cir cles, both in this country and abroad. She writes in a realistic manner, without any of the offensiveness of the average realism. The next article in importance is from the pen of Miss Bisland, describing a visit to the People’s Palace in London. Darley, with his own illustrations, is also given. a’Beeket’s clever story, Don Gracias, is illustrated in a novel manner, the well known actors, Sotliern and Miss Ilarned, having consented to pose for the situations of the novel, the results being reproduced in photogravure. The January Forum opens with a re view of the colonization and division of Africa down to date, aud accompanied with a map, by Prof. Emile de Laveleye. This is a record of the most gigantic work of colonization ever undertaken, and its in fluence on the future of civilization can not yet be reckoned. Mr. Thomas G. Shearman writes an essay on “The Com ing Billionaire,” to show that under the present system of the federal taxation our present two-huudred-milliouaires would necessarially become billionaires iu forty years; but he does not expect a billionaire at all, because he regards the present sys tem of indirect taxation as doomed and the early coming of direct federal taxation as available. President J. C. Price, of Livingston Col lege, N. C., himself a colored man, discuss es the question whether the negroes seek social equality with the whites. Maintain ing that his race does not seek social equal ity, he argues that to seek or to expect it through legislation would be futile and absurd- The biographical essay this month is by President Dwight, of Yale, who points out the relative advan tages from his point ■ of view of the com mercial life and of the life of a teacher. Eliza Lynn Linton, after showing the in adequacy of marriage iu certain ways, argues the necessity of maintaining it as the very preservation of society. The Rev. Charles Dana Boardman, of Philadel phia, vvrites of “Conservative Progress” in church, in politics and in society; W. S. Lilly discusses the nature of real liberty, which must be subject to law; Edmund Gosse writes of the future of poetry as one of the great arts; Mr. Oberlin Smith shows how the construction and service of rail ways might be improved and even revolu tionized, and Mr. John D. Champlin, Jr., writes about the increasing American habit of manufacturing ancestors. Eczema on a Boy Suff rings Intense- Head Nearly Raw.

Cologne, December 29 —The Yolks Ztdtung announces that a bill will be sub mitted to the German imperial parliament in 1891, providing for the restitution to the Catholic Church of the entire accu mulated capital formed by the priests sal aries which were confiscated during the anti-Catholi- agitation. It is further pro posed, by the bill referred to, that this ac cumulated capital shall be handed over t the bishops, who are to appoint special boards of arbitration in each diocese to decide the claims for compensation. Noth ing final, however, will be decided till the Prussian minister considers the matter. STRIKERS RETURN TO WORK. Newark, N. J., December 29.—One thousand girls returned to work at Clark’s thread mills this morning, including the twisters, spoolers and finishers. There is about three weeks work on hand, and if the trouble with the spinners is settled by that time the girls will be kept on. The company expects a big supply of cotton from Scotland shortly, and will then offer work to one thousand more girls. The striking spinners and locked out men find no fault with the girls for returning to work, as they were not organized.

How’s th„ wife ? ” “Oh! she’s so-so, same as nguil,—always want. Ing something I can’t afford.” “ Well, we all want something more than we’re got. Don’t yon f” “Yes: but I guess ‘want will be my master.* I started to keep down expenses; and now Lil says Pm ‘mean,’ and she's tired of saving and never . having anything to show for it. I caw your wife j down street, and she looked as happy as a queen! ” 1 “I think she is : and we are economical, too,— have to be. My wife can make a little go further than anyone I ever knew, yet she's always snr- prising rne writh some dainty contrivance that adds to the comfort and beauty of our little home and she’s always ‘ merry as a lark.’ When I ask how she manages it, she alwavs Ianghs and says* ‘Oh! that’s my secret!’ But I think I've dial 1 covered her 1 secret.’ When we married, we both knew we should have to be very careful, but she made one condition: she would have her Magazine. And she was right! I wouldn't do without it my self for double the subscription price. We read it together, from the title-page to the last word : the stories keep our hearts young; the synopsii of important events and scientific matters keeps me posted so that I can talk understanding^ of what is going on ; my wife is always trying some new idea from the household department; ahe makes ah her dresses and those for the children and she gets all her patterns for nothing, with the Magazine , and we saved Joe when he was so sick with the croup, by doing just as directed in the Department. But I can’t tell you half!” What wonderful Magazine Is it ?” ‘Demorest's Family Magazine, and—” ‘What! Why that’s what Lil wanted so bad ana 1 told her it was an extravagance.” - F.
