The Texarkana Gazetto contends
that the credit system is the great-

Statistics show that most every
failure of every kind of business aro
brought about by the credit sys-
tem, while most every bankruptcy in
the mercantile business is affected
by this meaus. Yet the farmers ns
a rule do not consider these facts,
and are struggling to succeed ami

for his year's supplies, aud paying
about one third more for them than
they could be bought for cash. If

The war in Cuba Btill drags its
slow length along. Tho Spanish
troops, directed as they arc bv the
first soldier of Spain, have up to the
present seemingly produced little
or no affect on the revolutionists.
There are accounts from timo to
time of sporadic encounter?, in which
bow tbe Spaniards and now tho
Cuban Insurgents have the upper
hand, bat there bas been no decisive
engagement, and as a cessation of
the war appears no nearer than it
was before the advent upon the
scene of General Campos. That
commander is rumored to be dis-
gusted with the situation in the
island, mad to have declared that he
would adrise Spain to abandon Cuba
to her on own fate in case things
should continue in a condition so
unsatisfactory as at present. This
is somewhat singular language for a
man in General Campos' position,
and the rumor may not be authen-
tic. It seem* unquestionable, how-
e»er, that both the general and the
government ere disappointed at tho
i energy the revolution-

THAT INCOME TAX DECISION.
The American Lawyer, published
in New York, thus criticises, edi-
torially, the recent supreme court
decision on the income tax :
"The late decision of tho supreme
court of the United States in the in-
come tax cases, wheroin the law
under which they arose was de-
clared unconstitutional, is remark-
able for several reasons.
In the lirat place, aud of primal
importance to the lawyer, in this de
cision is that it intimates, if indeed
it does uot directly so state, that no
income tax, which is not laid ac-
cording to the rule of apportion
meut is valid, reverses the theory of
constitutional construction estab-
lished by the court in no less than
live noted cases, and upon tho faith
of which two income tax laws were
passed by congress. lu other words,
upon the point stated, a new pre-
cedent has been established. And
it was established by a bare ma
joiity, one of which, Justice Shiras
Lad, on the original hearing, voted
to uphold tho law. Whether this
view will stand the test of judicial
inquiry, sure to be centered upon it
in duo time and form, may be a de-
bat-able question. But it is a fact
patent to the most casual observer
that a single decision irrespective of
its determinations, which, by the
narrowest possible margin, reverses
numerous adjudications, made usual-
ly by a unanimous court, can have
no especial weight, moral or legal
upon future litigations. In other
words, it is unfortunate, as a matter
of judical action, that the deter-
mination of the court was not reach-
ed with greater unity. The judg-
ment under discussion settles the
particular action before the court,
but no more.
A second unusual feature is the
fact, mentioned above, that one of
the justices reversed his former
opinion, judicially expressed but a
few weeks before. The cause of
this change of mind is unquestion-
ably explainable upon correct
grounds, but it is nono the less re-
markable—particularly so, as by
this action tho decision of the court
was controlled. Had Justice Shiras
retained his original judgment in
the matter, he having in the first in-
stance upheld the constitutionality
of the law in litigation, the decision,
of tho court would have been just
contrary to what it is. So that it
happens that this innovation in our
jurisprudence depended upon a
single justice, who had" voted two
ways on what wero supposed to be
final judgments of the main issue
during tho consideration of this
case. This is an additional reason
why tho decision can hardly be ex-
pected to possess tho pusgoncy and
permanence of the usual decreo of
our highest tribunal.
Tho dissenting opinion of Justice
Harlan, in its substance and its do-
1 ivory, was marked by characteristics
little else than extraordinary. It is
rare that a justico of the august
tribunal iu which ho eits, makes a
gesture or speaks iu other than
severely judicial tones while deliver-
ing an opinion, but in the present
instanco Justico Harlau is reported
to have spoken with a dramatic force
and fervor that was electrical iu its
inllucnce upon the listening lawyers
and laymen. Iu remonstrating
against tho decision of the court ho
repeatedly turned toward the chiof
justice and shook his finger at him
when tho words ho spoke became
notes of warning that, in his opinion,
this new view of tho constitution
was fraught with danger to the
future of the country."
One of the most interesting char-
acters in American literaturo is Bill
Nye. He has so impressed his per-
sonality upon this generation, that
his uarae is a household word
throughout the land. His writings
are the acme of rich humor, of broad
humanity and of practical common
sense. Ho has probably, a larger
number of appreciative readers than
any other author of this decade,
Mr. Nye has recently entered upon
new field. He lias written a his
tory of the United States. A history
dry statement of facts, is a little
out of Bill Nye's line. But with
him it is not dry. The facts are
there it is true, but his facile pen
has clothed them, sugar coated
them and made them palatable, to
bo swallowed with enjoyment and
esteel wilh pleasure and profit.
It is tho story of our wonderful
history, but there is a smile in every
paragraph and a hearty laugh in
every page. As this work was the
great effort of Mr. Nye's life he got
Fred. Opper, tho famous New York
Cartoonist to illustrate it. Mr. Op-
per is a master in tho art of illu-
fctratiug. He has thrown his soul as
well as his genius into tho illustra-
tions for Bill Nye's History of the
Inited States. The rosult is now

cessful book of the year. It is con-
trolled by The Dallas Publishing

Tlio Different Colonial Government Too
Wpak to Protect TliewsclvcH.
Wo, in the§o tiyies of America,
protected by tho laws and number
of peoplo ubout us, can hardly, com-
prehend such a lifo as that of tho
American cojonies in tho early part
of tho last eontury, when it was pos-
sible for a pirate like Blackboard to
orist, and for tho governor and tho
secretary of tho province iu which
ho lived to sharo his plunder and to
shelter and protect «him against tho
At that timo thy American colo-
nists wero jn general ft rough, rugged
pooplo, knowing ijiothyjg of the tino-
things of lifo. '£Jjey lived mostly in
littlo settlements, separated by long
distances from ono Another, so that
they could neither make nor enforce
laws to protect themselves. Each
manor littlo group of men had to
depend upon his or their own
strength to keep) what belonged to
them and to prevent fiorco men or
groups of men from taking what
was theirs away from them.
It is tho natural disposition of
every ono to get all that ho can. Lit-
tlo children usually try to take away
from others that which they want
and to Jceop it for their own. It is
only by constant teachlhg that they
learn that they must not do so, that
thoy must not tako by forco what
does not bolong to them. It is only
by teaching and training that peoplo
loarn to bo honest and not to tako
what is not theirs. When this teach-
ing is not sufficient to make a man
loarn to bo honest, or when there is
something in tho man himself that
makes him not able to learn, then
ho lacks only the opportunity to
seizo upon tho things ho wants, just
as ho would do if ho wero a littlo
In tho colonies at tho time, as has
just boon said, men wero too fow
and scattered to protect themselves
against those who had mado up their
minds to tako by forco whatever
Tho usual means of communica-
tion between provinco and province
was by water in coasting vessols.
Thoso small coasting vessels wero so
defenseless and tho different colonial
governments wero so ill ablo to
protect them that thoso who choso
to rob them could elo it almost with-
out ilangor to themselves.
So it was that all tho western
world was in thoso days infested
with armed bands of cruising free-
booters or pirates—men who had not
been taught, or who had not been
ablo to learn, that thoy mast not
tako from others what belonged to
thoso others. These pirates used to
stop merchant vessels and tako from
them what they choso.
Each province in thoso days was
ruled over by a royal governor ap-
pointed by tho king. Each provin-
cial governor was at ono timo free
to do almost as bo pleased in his
own provinco. They wero account-
able only to tho king and tho homo
government, and England was so
distant that they wero really respon-
sible almost to nobody but them-
Tho governors wero just as desir-
ous of getting rich quickly, just as
desirous of getting all that thoy
could for themselves, as was any-
body else, only thoy had boon taught
that it was not right to bo actual pi-
rates or robbers. Thoy wanted to got
rich easily and quickly, but thoy did
not desiro riches so niucb as to load
thorn to dishonor thomsolvos in their
own opinion and in tho opinion of
others by gratifying tho dosiro.
Thoy would ovon havo stopped tho
pirates from doing unlawful acts if
possiblo, but thoir provincial gov-
ernments wore too weak to prevont
tbo froobooters from robbing mer-
chant vessels or to punish thom
whon they camo ashore. Tho prov-
inces had no navies, and thoy real-
ly bael no armies. Neither were
tboro enough people living within
tho communities to enforco tho laws
ugainst thoso strongor and fiercer
men who woro not honost.—Howard

Burnett camo across tho plains to
Oregon in 1843 with Jesse Apple-

1872, whon Applegato walked into
Burnett's oflico in San Francisco. In
his "Recollections" Burnott rolatos
how Applogato, giving an account
of his history after Burnett had loft
Oregon, said: "In thot|mpquaI had
fine lands and stock and other prop-
erty. After awhile I determined to
go into tho mercantile business. To
make a long story short, I sold my
goods on credit to thoso who needed
thom most and not to thoso who
wore ablo to pay, lost $30,000 and
quit tho business.'' This story is very
characteristic of Jos;>e Applogato.—
