HI3 OLOPwIOUS COUNTRY.
We hear but little abouti this '"ltIo
.rious country' low since the Alliance
lias made it daiu that our national
government is rotten to the core.
Now and then some wit rises to men
tion the "billion, dollar Congress" in t:
joking way. hut this is no finny
niatter it is ii seiious thing,1 but is only
one. mort kuile in the hands "of justice
:" that will engage in the work of cutting
off the oiliciil heads., of the men in
b )th juditical parties w ho a!h)wed tie
jippmpi iations to pass.
A billion dollar Congress is a catch
'plirrtse which "may. be flippantly
lUiJuthed, but how few of us lvali
vluit it means. We lire now ap-
; ju-oaching the end of the nineteenth
i:entury, et a billion dollars is more
titan COO' for every- hour of. nineteen
liiHidred year. The Fourth of July
wis. the 11-o'h an ni versa-r.y of th.e
..declaration of Aiuerican iuvlependence,
yet these apprupnations iimouut to
iver for e-v.-iy secoud ot that
j eriod. -r-V-TajyUig it another way it is
over CdG for every man, woman" and

t his" is an Enormous tax. Yet it is only
the burden of. the national govern-'
luent. Add ti) it tin; State, county,
iuuiiicijrij, scliool and tlie various
sjec'ud taxes and the great interest
harden, or tax1 for tlie use of currency
t make the necessary exchanges, and
vewill-.sce-.th'at American" labor is the
liio&t p.-o.lujtive 0-1 any iu tiro world.
Jiufc the'qilietion still rei::aiiis, can we
afford these Jieavy taj.es? Some one
