The question baa often been asked,
and never answered; wby the Demo
cratic legislature did not put the
substance of Sections 4 and 5 of the
proposed constitutional anitndnoent
in one paragraph. It i noticeable
that whin a Democratic newspaper
A. .nkr attemnts to answer tbe
statement that the proposed amend
ment is unconstitutional that th
invariably insist that if it ia uccon
stitntional it will all fall toother.
In fact half of their argummt so fat
has been made to try to show that
the court would not knock out Fac
tion 5, known as "The (iiat dfather
Claase,'' without knockitg out tl
whole amendment. In this conn c-
ilnn nm information wtich. The

.... TnHrPil. arc telu tbat a
number of Democrats a long time
refused to vote for the ami.-ndment
unless s wtion 5 was engrafted witl
section 4 in one paragraph, on tb
ground that they feared if this wai MBnila to (livide tho hono
i.ii lon. fiftv or sixty tboufauU
white men might be disfranchised u.
the State by tbe amendment. Now
if this is true, the action of the Kg-
islatuie in adopting tbe aineiidmn.1
with the grandfather clause in asep
arate section, becomes mere signifi
cant than ever. Of course this fact,
if it is a fact, does not u.crt-at-e tb
danger of the voter beiDg disfran
chised any more than if the legisla
ture had no such intention; but the
fact, if it is a fact that the legibla
ture purposely separated these sec
tions would indicate that there was a
desire among the inner circle to dis
franchise as many poor ignorant
white men aa negroes.
We do not publish the above as a
fact, but having received it on what
we consider good authority, we pub
lish it in order that the members ot
that legislature may purge them
selves of such a design sgAiust the
poor white voters of the Siato if
such was not the fact.
In thU connection, it might bu
well to remember that members of
the legislature who pledged their
constituents on the stump in the
last campaign that If elected they
would not favor any disfranchising
scheme to disfranchise anybody,
and yet, who, when elected bowed
to the lash of Simmons and his ma
chine to vote for the proposed
amendment, might be guilty of the
offence as described above.

Th; demonstration in New York
and Washington over the return of
Admiral Dewey wa tremendous
and unprecedented. Never before
ia the history of the world has any
conquering Iiero, upon m return
home after a brilliant military or
naval accomplishment, received
such an Imposing, magnificent and
unanimous reception. The naval
parade In New York harbor both by
day and by night, was unquestion
ably the most Unloosing and bril
liant scene that the world has hith
erto produced. The land parade
in New York on the following day,
beginning at Jrant's Tomb and ex-
for seven miles down
through the city of New York to
the triumphal arch on Fifth Ave
nue, with live millions of people
banked on each side of the trium
phal procession, was enough to turn
the head of any man that was not
made out of stern stuff. No other
city in the world could surpass New
York in such a demonstration and
New York surpassed itself.
The reception given to the Ad
miral at the Nation's Cap
itol was different in kind, but was
ur.Iquo and r.o less imposing and
appropriate. Probably no one liv
liitr will ever see its equal. The
American people love a real hero.
but It is not often that one Is pro
duced under such pecullaily fasci
nating and favorable circumstan
ces. I tie victory at Santiago was
as brilliant and complete as the one
at Manila Hay, but for several rea
sons it was not possible for the
American people to join so unan
imously in rnakh.g such a welcome
to any one of its heroes. In the
first place Santiago is too near our
shores to give the kind of enchant
ment that surrounded the victory
at Manila. In the next place, the
real hro of Santiago was not In su
preme command, technically speak
ing; and, besides, he was not the
favorite of the powers that bo in
Washington. There was no one at
theft while ago they ao ridieuledj
and abased. What doe this mean
but that these Democratic speaker
atd papers are either stupidly in
capable of appreciating the needs of j
tbe people or wilfully indifferent to
them until foreed to recognize them!
It means further that the People's
Party in the only safe-guard in this I
fi'bt the only reliance of the peo.
pie. When all of the principles of
tbe People's Party are enacted into
la v, then shall we see that era of
cent ral prosperity which will follow

THERE MAY HE 80MET1U0 l IT.
A month or two ago we remember
to have seen a press dispatch to the
effect that William C. Whitney had
gone to Europe. A little later we
noticed a statement to the effect that
Mr. Whitney while in Europe would
see Admiral Dewey at some point
where he would touch on the Euro
pean Coast. About this time the
mammoth demonstration by Xw
York city upon the arrival of Ad
miral Dewey was decided upon. Now
let it be remembered that Nw York
city is under the control of the gold
and monopoly Democrats under tnt
leadership of Croker and Tammany,
who are cheek by jowl with Whit
ney. Now following this, within
the last few days, we have seen that
there is a movement on foot iff
several Southern States by leading
Democrats who pretend to be for
silver, but who are at heart followers
of Orover Cleveland, to try to get
Admiral Dewey to come south on
tour. It is not improbable that there
is a great deal of politics in all of
this. Now while Admiral Dewey is
the naval hero of the na'ioi, and
deservedly so, yet from the stand
point of an executive officer or i
legislator he is understood to be as
much at variance with the welfare of
the people on economic questions as
Urover Cleveland nmseir. it is
hard to believe that Admiral Dewey
'would lend himself to such political
scheme, but it looks as if the gold
bugs and monopolists were tryfng
to trade on his naval fame and
popularity to make him the Demo
cratie nominee, and then, with
M'Kinley" for the Republican nomi
nee, no matter which side win?, the
people would again be the under dog
The Caucasian hopes that there is
nothing in all of this but at the same
time it is well enough to keep an
eye on all these movements.
ewey, and there were no circum
stances that made it possible for
the Department ring at Washing
ton to attempt to rob him of any of
his glory, even though he were not
theiet. Then again, the Manila
victory was the lirst of the Spanish
war. It was half way across the
world, and therefore in latitude
wiiere American naval prowess
had never yet been displayed. This
distance lent enchantment and
gave full play for the American im
agination. Then, besidfs, the fact
that It was the victory that wiped
on. tne map as a naval power one
few hundred years ago, until the
Spanish Armada was destroyed
was the mistress of the sea. There
fore it is hardly probable that
while any of tho present genera
tion lives that there can be bv
any means not only such a rortu
nate combination ot circumstances
to produce another such real hero
but one under circumstances that
will give full play to the imagina
tion of the nation and result in such
a spontaneous recognition of a bril
In short, Dewey is today one of
the greatest war heroes that the
world has so far produced, and as
uch he will die if he prevents de
signing politicians from trading
upon the reputation that he has
won in adding to the glory of the
American flag. .

THK INHKKITANCK TAX.
The National Rural, commenting
on the inheritance tax passed by the
last Legislature of Illinois, says:
The itheritance tax law passed by
the legislature of Illinois is a s'ep
in the right direction. The txecutois
of the estate of George M. Pullman
have jast paid into tbe Cook County
treasury the sum of $15S,2S3. beiDg
the full amount oi the tax on his es
tate. The BJliups estate will also
pay in $03 000. These sums, and
others fiom larger estates from tim-
to time, will lighten the burden of
tsxstiooon farms and other nxnll
holding of the industrial classes. Toe
new revenue law of the s a'e also
promises to largely increase th
amount of tax paid by the wealthy,
4 class who under the old law, wert
permitted to escape .their just bur
den. If to these beneficent entet
ments ceu'd be added a franchis
tax similar to that passtd by thf
last legislature in New York, acd an
income tsx, a fair share of the bur
den of taxation would be shifted to
wh re it belongs.
It was natural that the Democrat
ic papers and speakers knew so
l.tile about the merits of the
economic reforms which the People's
party was organized to contend for.
We say it was natural because in all
the years prior to the organization i f
the People's Party, the Masters had
given them but two lessons to learn,
beyond which they were not allowed
to advance; and though ignorant
upon all others, they had learned
these two lessons to perfection. In
national matters it was the tariff;
in State, the State affairs, the Negro.
And when the People's party sprang
into existence to contend for new
issues, true to long years of training
they obeyed when lold to ridicule
these issues, denounce the new doc
trines as hersey, and abuse tbe ad
vocates of them as wild-eyed cranks
and anarchists, flow well tney
obeyed this command is now a mat
ter of history. But there was a
stronger influence at work than they
reckoned upon. The people them
selves began to see the justice of the
principles advocated by the People's
Party and to clamor for them. To
day it is no unusual thing to see
Democratic papers and speakers ad
vocating the vory reforms which a

Potato flour is used much in Aus
tria, where it is cheaper than wheat
flour. . The natives use it for all sorts
of baking, and it makes beantifu
white bread and cake. - The method
of making .the flour is to wash and
peel the potatoes and then ent them
np in small pieces. These pieces are
next crushed so that the starch is
separated from the eella. Water is
freely added to carry away the starch
daring the process. The potatoes
are then dried and pulverised, when
the floer is ready for using. Ex.
