Oae of the oldest, it fiot the very
oldest, men in America lives inn
little shanty on the banks of the
Osage River at Osage City, Mo.
Be in a negro and bis name is Rich-
AM'xjard Hoops, According to. th
1.40 i statements 'of Lfoops, whiob are
eunpor'ed hv accessible records.
Iih wa born i 01ml nam county, N
C, D cemher 20, 1770, mxm! thus
Uiks lea tbiiu a montb t the com
pletion of hjr 1231 year. Born h
slave, he was lakn to Missouri by
his owuer, John P. Ilayden, while a
m.ere boy. A few years later he
was sold to the mn whose name he
iiiv lt-Hrs nd lived with hirn nem
Yinna, Ma'ie :mnty, until ihe

He fihe" a f.'ieat deal lor the bi'
c tttiwli l hat fr quent the ws'.ers of
i he Osage aud is never happier
than . when he cau catch a big one
and make oup ol ntft head. He is
still able to do some woik, and it
was only a lew years since that b
contrtc ed with a faimt r in the
vicinity of hit home to iemove the
stumps aud roots off a newly cleared
tract of laud. He fulfilled his eoti
uacf, doing all the work h'mself.
Bis miod is slid clear on many ol
theeveuts that nappeued towaid
the close of the last century, and
recalls with great prid that he
OLce held the horse of General
Greeue, of Beveluliouary fame. In
apptarauce Hoops iesemhles
mammy ; his kiu looks like parch
uini and he is toothless and hair
le, but his step is remarkably
firm and his eyes. bright and clear.
As stated, he lives alone, having
no relatives as far as known. He
is a member and regular attendant
of the African Methodist Episcopil
Church, His neighbors take a great
interest in him and do him man
ac' 8 of kihdnes", and he would not
hive to work, as the.v would supply
his simple wants gladly, but he i
independent, and says that he pio
po8ea to earI1 owu jiviug for
many years yet. His boae stands
under the approach to the Missouri .
Pacific Railroad bridge across th :
Osage, and except when absent on j
jjs fishing trips "Uncle Hoops,'' as j

He has the record of his birth, and
there is but little douot that he -s

Senator- Vance Favors Tlie
Income Tax, -
Senator Vance, of North Carolina,
k been in towu hee' .for. two da s,
a?id speaking o! revenue' and tirilT
legislation said': "
"There 18 throughout the south
an almost unanimous sentiment in
favor of an income tax, and 'this
question will be brought op wb-n
th-? tariff bill i . up.aer dlgoussion.
Iy own opinion is tbafc an Yncome
tx of some character will :, be en
grafted upon the tariff measure be
fore it passes Congress. What form
iu will take it is now impossible to
say, bat some of tbe best mind in
both branches of Congress are di
rected to the sobject, and it is safe
to say they will evolve a ati6factory.
Dasis which will receive a hearty
Southern euppotr. "
"It will be necessary to adopt
some means of raising the enormous
revenue r quired to sujport th
government wheu tariff re'orm is
effected. Some say tnis sbould'be
done by raising the tax on whiskey
and tobacco. Expeiieuce, however,
has shown that this is not always
practicable. Statistics piovo that
less revenue i derived from a high
tex on sprrltsand tobacco than fiom
a moderate tax. The reason tor this
is that consumption. falls " off as the
tax becomes piotnbitory. There is
no taker way to raise revenue than
by taxing incomes, notwithstanding
the objection tbat has been orged
tbat it will be class legislation. Such
arguments are based on sophistry,
ja8 n Cah be easily shown that an
income tax ia the moat equitable
