are overwhelmingly involved.

This has been the-most prosperous year

The probability is that, in spite of
himself, the forces of reaction which
won his victory for him by methods
thatmay be passed over for the present,
which cannot be ignored, will hold
him down to that *'’conservatism”
which means an arrest of the forward
movement of the party and a facing
backward upon vital issues —St. Louis
It is not to be denied that tbe elec
tion ol Mr. Crisp indicates that the or
ganization of the democratic party as
it is represented in the house is not
favorable to a campaign next year on
the8ingl« issue of tariff reform and
economical administration, or to the
nomination of a candidate who would
present that issue to the country.—New
As an indication of action by the ma
jority in Congress on the tariff question
it means nothing. Mills is an extrem
ist, it is true, but Judge Crisp voted for
tbe bill of which Mills was the author
in the Fiftieth Qongr<-.ss, and his
speeches in Ohio in the recent campaign
showed him to be a radical revenue tar
iff man.—Cleveland Trader.
The precise significance of tbe elec
tion of Speaker Crisp with respect to
the future policy of the democratic side
of the house is difficult of determina
tion. Broadly speaking it may be said
that bis el-ciiori amounts to a repudia
tion of tbe extreme free trade views of
Mr. Mills.—Detroit Tribune.
The western democracy, which did
not support him in his candidacy, will
nevertheless give Mr. Crisp the fullest
and fairest show in the word; but it
will insist, as it has insisted for years,
that the tariff must be reformed and
that economy be exercised in the pub
lic expenditures.—Indianapolis Senti
It is a triumph for the enemies of
Cleveland, and apparently retires that
gentleman from serious consideration
a presidential possibility. It is a
victory for the elements represented by
Arthur Gorman, Governor Hill, Calvin
Brice, Tammany and the New York
Sun.—Cincinnatti Commercial Gazette.
The gentlemen who are calling Spea
ker Crisp an out and-out free coinage
man convict themselves of wofnl igno
rance. A very recent speech of Mr
Crisp shows that he does not entertain
such views, but recognizes that tbe
tariff is the issue next yearMilwaukee
Mr. Crisp’s speech, in returning
thanks for the nomination, shows that
in the over-shadowing question of tariff
reform he is iuline with with the sen
timent of tbe party. That question
will be kept to the front and there will
he no backward steps.—Detroit Free
The choice is significant of the domi
nance of a prudent spirit in the great
democratic majority. It stamps that
majority at the outlet as one worthy of
the great trust committed by the people
to the democratic party.—New York
It i? possible that the democrats might
have done as well by the election of
some oiher man than Crisp to tbe speak
ership, but it is clear that they could
not ha\e done better au-i might have
done much worse.—Philadelphia
After a prolonged struggle Mr. Crisp
has defeated Mr. Mills, and Mj. Cleve
land and his supporters are left out in
the cold. If democratic testimony is to
be accepted, the result is a victory for
Mr, Crisp is serving his fifth term in
Congress, and is a strong man, a
thorough democrat and au excellent
parliamentarian. His choice will be
satisfactory both to ihc party and to the
people —Cincinnati Enquirer.
With Crisp in the chair, and with
Mills, Springer and Mc.Millin to meet
Reed’s bancson the floor, the democrat
ic side will he equipped at all points for
tbetprudent conduct of public business.

Altogether, bis election is not much
to be regrettek. It is, in a sense, a vic

▲ BRIEF SKETCH OF BIS LIFE
Dr. W. B. Steedly was born in Mid

He was forty one years old.
He was a bright boy and showed an
inclination when quite young to enter
tbe medical profession. He went to
tbe medical College in Au

and afterwards went North to attend
a college of more extensive facilities.
He practiced medicine at his old
home, Midway, in South Carolina, for
a good number of years, and won
golden opinions among the people who
became bis patrons and clientage.
Many a time be would drive in a buggy
incessantly day and- night, attending
patients in the country around Midway,
sleeping in the buggy while a negro
boy drove him from place to place.
The climate was cursed with malaria,
and Dr. Steedly’s health soon began to

Vienna, Deo. 12. —A tragedy unpar
alleled in atrocity is reported from

twenty-one miles from Presburg. Six
teen years ago the son of a poor peas

Wieselburg is the capital went to
America. There by industry be grad

money. Resolving to return to his
father’s home, the son on his way
changed his money into the compact
forms of English sovereigns, of which
he had 600. It was late when he ar
rived at his father's house. He did not
immediately make himself known, but
asked hospitality as a stranger. The
mother was not there at the moment,
but the father recognized his son
through tbe disguise of years and em
The son, being weary, retired to rest,

His son had the money in a bag near
his bed. The father did not tell the
mother when she came home who the
stranger was, resolving to wait until
morning and the son reveal himself to
the joy and surprise of his mother.
The latter got up during the night and
examined the stranger’s baggage and
finding the gold—a larger sum than she
had ever dreamed ot—determined to
possess it. The husband and father
slept on. The mother stealthily got a
knife and cut the throat of the stranger,
killing him instantly. Then she took
the gold and hid it. When the father
awoke he found his son in a pool of
blood on the bed. His cry of anguish
and horror aroused the wife, who had
expected to find her husband a ready
accomplice in concealing the crime for
the sake of the money. The father
gasped out who the victim was. With
one cry the murderess reeled and fell

Cured by Cuticura.
For about thirteen years I have been troubled
with ecsema or some other cutaiiOuna disease
which all remedies failed to cure, nearing of
the Cuticura Remedies, I resolved to give
them a trial. Hollowed the directions careiully,
and it affords me much pleasure to my that be

of Clticuka. soap, and one bottle of Cutjoura
Resolvent, I was entirely cuied. In addition
to my own case, my baby boy, then about five
months old, was sufferi -g with what 1 supposed

scab, fr- m which there was a constant flow of
pus which was sickening to look upon, besides

head. Thanks to jo-w wonderful i:utioura
Remedies, his scalp is perfectly well, and the
kernels have been scattered so that there is only
one Uttle place by his left ear, and that Is hear

whole world of sufferers from skin and blood
diseases knew the value of your Cutioc ha Rem

used any other toilet soap in my house since I
bought the first cake of yonr Cctiouba Soap.

and shall continue to speak of them from the
