Correspondence of Ibe VVatcUniaD. i Those persons who haye entered the ranks of the reform movement, think ing that the excess in numbers of those whose interests will he served by the accomplishment of its objects will ren der victory easy, arc mistaken. The cunning and craft of those who have succeeded iu keeping the people blind upon the vital and .living issues of the da', and divided upon minor issues, have been busy all these years in forti fying themselves against a popular up rising which they, rightly anticipated would come. Every avenue of attack upon their 'entrenched' position has been carefully guarded and strength ened. They haTe made themseves masters cf the most potent power in the land the secular press. They hare done this so adroitly that Ihe pcbple hare been induced to support the pipers that, while- serving the in terests of monopoly, were sowing the seeds of discord among the rallying forces ol the reform movement, "and neutralizing everyeffort to bring them together upon questions which affect their most vital interests. In support of this statement it is only necessary to look back over the files of the great dailies and political weeklies that have, for years persisteaily ignored the issue nowso broadly and- distinctively pro claimed in the" National Alliance plat form. The operation-s of the money jfjuci un uicunty seen m the in tluence which it has wielded in divert ing the attention of tha public press from those issues, whila their work of plunder was amassing millions of dollars in the hands' of a few. and undermining the foundations of the repui.hc. Vv ilh the money Clched from the people they have succeeded in perverting the ends of justice by intro ducing bribery aud corruption in every department of the government. The Suprema Court of the United States, the fountain of justice erected by the framers of the constitution, is not wholly free from the bansful influence of this unholy combination. The Congress of the United States, the citadel of American liberty, has be come their willing ally. -They rejoice in a millionaire Senate and a House composed of bank kers, who are their p'.iint tools. Thev make and unmake presidents, senators and governors, wit h an audacity and disregard of the rights of (ha pe pl?,that is only equalled by tb.a in famous act of the Pnii'orian Guards' who, alter decapitating Pertimax, of fered at public auction and sold to Jaiian the imperial crown of the Ha inan empire.

Who- ever seeks to create discord by an tag-' onizing those issues, or precipitating' new ones upon which tne people are divided, is an enemy to reform and should be properly branded such,for he would be assisting the money power in o vim? the seeds of dissension.

Too much -eannot be said about get ting honey t the market in good con dition, and we are leased to give the following extracts from a uaDer bv xicuij oegeiKien, reai oeiore the iNew York State Bee-Kieper Convention, entitled "Wlujt Out Market Demands." It is certainly tol the interest of the producer to p6t his product on the' market in the most attractive and sal able style, and we, a sellers and dis tributors, are fn a position to know tka wants of cmr markets. Receiving comb-honey io large quantities from all the h oh ey-producing centres, we get it in all shapes, and in many cases there is room tor vast improve ment. - I In these days of jsharp competition iu all industrial, itj has been found II llr i-i r .i . a necessary to put the troods on the market m an attractive ThU 111,3 shape. i is mainly the case with all kinds ef food products, "such ias canned eood, preserves, etc., nil o which are hand somely labelled;, andj those which are put up the ueatesi will find quickest sale. The consumer will always buy that whieh looks the most appetizing As these facts can not be denied of sta ple goods, it is nil tie more necessary to use the utmost care in putting up comb honey in thai most attractive style, because this Ujregarded as a lux ury if not altogether, certainly to a very great ex tear. We very often sceihoney put up in bulky, awkward crates, not even glass on the sides of the crate; the combs built withqut separators, so that it is almost impossible to take them from the crate without injury. Such goods find very slow sale ahd prices have to b? shaded considerably to move them off. Still these shippers generally ex pect prices, atid are often dis- satisfiad and disappoiiited with the re turns, vvnen the fault lies with them selves only. ; For a one-pound section we recom mend a single-tier crate, holding twenty-four or twnty-fivejseetions. While we are n ot opposed to; the double-tier crate, webe!ieve ihe former is most desirable at anv, rate; for unglassed honey, it some or the combs m an upper tier leak, they the bottom rows and will drop over soil toe whole crate. . j. For glassed or hmrlased linnv we ahise the use of heavy paper in the bottom of the crate turned up about half an inch on the sides. If soma of the combs should be broken down. this will prevent the honey from run- uing through thejcralev In addition, , it is advisable to lay strips of wood of ! about one-fourth inch in thickness on the paper, frm side to side, for the ; combs to rest on. ;; This will. prevent ! the honey drippingTrom the broken ! combs from sj;iling the good combs, Of, course it is not -necessary to go to ' this trouble when ihe honey is shipped in. paper boxes, "What pirt of the honev shduld beHield, put his horses into the bain, and ' finders iu the com hi Another item ot importance is not to have the sections; weigh over one I pound. each, and 1 ss if j po sible.
