It cannot be denied that Preside tit

always there is a time previous to the

is made that either Harrison or liiaine
will be the nominee.
It is possible that a tariff bill putting
refined sugar and binding-twine on the
free list may shortly pass the Senate.
Tht democratic Senators all favor it,
and several of the republican Senators,
including Perkins of Kansas, and Cul
lem ot Illinois, have said that if inves
tigations they are now making shall
prove the truthfulness of the reported
intention of the binding-twine trust-to
itimn the price of that article from 0 to
15 cents a i-onn l,they would support
it. It all depends upon the trutimil-
ness of that report. If the binding-
twine trust really intends to. try to rob
the. farmer in that stvle it- is almost
certain that every western senator will
vote for free binding-twine.
The Senate h.s not made a practice
of either preaching or practicing to any
tuarked extent, its prolesion being
i . i , i i . r . .
economy in people s money, wnue in us
practices it has often impressed many
4jeople with the idea that it was extra-
vigin'. It was tli'.'e;oie all tne more
unique to hear such eminent Senators
of both .sides of .the political feme as
Mr. Cockiell, of Missouri, and Mr. S'.ier
nan, of Ohio, pleading with the Senate
to rerect and amendment to the nav.d
bill approiriating $250,000 for a dry
dock at Algiers,Lo'iisiana,on the ground
of economy, of course the amendment
was defeated it could not stind the
combination as was a t'.'iuilar one ot

dock at Port month. New Hampshire.
According to (jorman, hosier was

be astounded if the total appropri-ilions
of I he 521 Congress exceeded the
