No good can come out of it; and, as Senator Hill aptly said, much harm may. The last concerted effort of the Re publican Senators against the tariff bill is now being made against the sugar schedule; This is not because they are so much opposed to the sugar schedule as a matter of fact a number of them are knowc to favor it but f because they believe that if they cat put sugar on the free list enough Democrats will refuse to vote fb? the entire bill to enable them to defeat ; it J f But the scheme will not work.

The debate had been going on all last week and will probably continue for a week or ten days longer, the unacted upon ap propriation bills having been tempo rarily laid aside. . The result is in doubt, depending, many believe, on the attendance when the vote is taken. It the attendance exceeds 280 the probabilities are that repeal will be defeated, as the largest claim made by the friends of repeal is 140 votes. But inasmuch as those who favor thWrepejal of the tax are more interested in securing it than those who oppose i are in preventing it, the chances at? in favor of the re pealers mustering their full strength on the floor of the house when the time comes to vote and winning, i: they car get the 140 votes claimed Some very interesting and instruc tive speeches have been made by Democrats both for and against re peal. Tjhe Republicans have not up to this time taken a conspicuous part in the debate, although, they are soliqly opposed to repeal. Rep resentative Bick, of Georgia, made a strong aud bold speech in favor o repeal, in, which he took the ground that the' general government had no right under the constitution to im pose such a tax, and stated his be liet that the United States Supreme court had flo more right to bind the action of the; house than the house had to bind the Supreme court.

Their pur pose is plain, and cannot be veiled behind protestations of sympathy for the various interests affected by the ntntndments which have been debated. With few exceptions these interests have been trifling compared with the tremendous interests affect- ed by the de!ay in the passing of the bill, and the people everywhere who are clamoring for the settlement of his question in order that -the busi ness of the country may proceed, know full well v that the Republican party is to blame for the delay in its enactment. The object of the Re publicans is known of all men. "The Republican Senators know that the passage of the Wilson bill will inaugurate an era of prosperity and growth in this country and a revival of business throughout the and that will be disastrousto Re publican hopes. To escape this they wish to postpone the passage of the bill until after the approaching elec tions, or until a date so close to that time as to make it impossible for the improved conditions to be felt before the elections. "The people are not theorizing. They arc hungry in the midst of plenty; they are unemployed in the home of progress and development. They are the victims of a condition which is the natural result of a policy that the Republican party is responsible for, and the reform of which they are now opposing by artifice and every method of . delay known to the parliamentary tactic- lan. aj the theory tnat snutting out competition from other countries will protect our home marketfor our home people, theMcKinley tariff has excluded millions of dollars' worth of, goods, for -rwhich our own pro ducts would have been exported in payment; and just in proportion as others have been crowded out our own goods have been shut in, and we find millions of bushels of wheat being fed to hogs, which, under a freer tariff, would have found a V profitable market abroad."

In speaking of the battle, Judge Clark, who is chairman of the dele gation, said: "The battle of Antietam or Sharps- burg, as the Southern people call it, was one of the bloodiest of the entire war. It was fought on September 17, 1862, the day after the capture of Harper's Ferry by the Confededer ates. Engaged in it were thirty-two regiments of North Carolina soldiers, and about one-half of them were kill ed or wounded. Two of our gallant generals, Anderson and Branch, the latter the father of Congressman Branch, lost their lives in that en counter. According to the official records there were about 90,000 Federal troops and ;30,000 Confed erntes, Gen. McClellan commanding the Northern and Gen. Lee the Southern armies. The fight took place on Wednesday, and Thursday nieht Gen. Lee moved his troops across the Potomac.

Be careful of the little courtesies. You cannot expect your boys to be respectful, thoughtful and kind un less you first set them the example. If you would have your boy make you his confidant, take an active in terest in all thaitiie does, don't, be too critical, and ask for his views and opinions at all times. Don't keep your boys in ignorance of the things they should know. It is not the wholesome truth, but the unwholesome way in which it is ac quired that ruins ; many a young man. Don't act as though your boy amounted to nothing, uor be con tinually making comparisous be- tween him and some neighbor's .son to his disadvantage; nothing will dishearten him quicker. Don't think that anything is good , enough for the boys, and -that they don't care for nice things; halve their rooms fixed up nicely as possible; let them understand that they are to be kept in order, and the results will justify your pains. Furnish your' boy with good wholesome reading matter. Have him read to and with - you. Discuss with him what you read, and draw out his opinions and thoughts on the subject. Help him to think ear ly for himself. Make,home a pleasant place; see to it that the boys don't have to go somewhere else to secure proper free dom and companionship. Take time to make them feel com- ; fortable and contented, and they will not want to spend their even ings away from home. Pick your son's associates. See to it that he has no friends you know nothing about. Take an in t erst in all his troubles and pleasures, and have him to feel perfectly free to in vite his friends to the house.
