From our Correspondent.
Hard things have been said of Mr.
McKinley by the friends of Cuba on
the floors of the Senate and House,
but no American has said such insult
ing things of him as were said in a
letter signed with the name of his
great and good friend, Senor de Lome,
Spanish Minister to the U. S., which
was this week published. Not only
was Mr. McKinley grossly insulted by
name in this letter, but he was jeered
at for allowing himself to be fooled by
the force of autonomy in Cuba and
the pretence of Spain that it wishes to
negotiate a reciprocity treajy that
would give this country all the trade
of Cuba and Porto Rica. It is doubt
less because of grief that his great and
good friend should have such an opin
ion of him that Mr. McKinjey did not
send de Lome his passport at once,
instead of writing to have it fully
proven that the letter was written and
signed by de Lome, by his resignation.
This letter was made public by the
Cuban Junta, which has the original
in its possession, and if it does not
open the eyes of Mr. McKinley to
the real situation and cause him to
either recognize the independence of
Cuba or to intervene by force, it will
convince all of the people that a great
mistake was make in electing him
President—About 7,000,000 are al
ready convinced. If he acts quick,
he may get some credit, but if he de-
Jays, Congress will force him to act
and he will get no credit. The feel
ing that the time for action has come
was plainly manifested in the Senate
while Senators Cannon, of Utah,
Mason of 111., and Allen, of Nebraska,
were speaking on the Cuban resolu
tions which have been offered by
each of them.
In order that he might meet them
all and at the same time show his ap
preriation if their loyaity to him dur
ing the recent deadlock, Senator Gor
man entertained all of the democratic
members of the Maryland legislature,
except two who were kept away by
sickness, at a dinner in Washington
this week. Not a man who attended
that dinner regards Senator Gorman
as out of politics.
If the democrats, the populists, and
the silver republicans had not made
that agreement to act together in the
Congressional campaign. Representa
tive Plowman, of Ala., would not have
been ousted out of his seat in the
House, by the votes of the republican
majority. The republicans voted to
give the seat to Aldrich, who ran as a
populist candidate and was supported
by republicans, not because they
thought he was entitled to it, but be
cause they thought the case could be
used to divide the democrats and
populists in some Congressional dis
tricts in which republicans cannot
possibly win if the democratic and
populists votes are cast for a single
Mr. McKinley has not forgotten to
take good care of his personal friends.
Another one of them, Mr. Wm. J.
Calhoun, of 111., who it will be remem
bered was sent to Cuba as the person
al and confidential representative of
Mr. McKinley, last spring, has been
given a fat berth. Mr. Calhoun is to
get the position on the Inter State
Commerce Commission vacated by
the retirement of Hon. Wm. R. Mor
rison, the old democratic war horse of
Illinois. A Pennsylvania man was
stated for this position, but so many
vigorous protests were received from
labor organizations that Mr. McKin
ley was afraid to appoint him.
Boss Hanna is again asserting his
power. He kept very quiet for
awhile after he returned from his late
Ohio shopping expedition, but he this
week compelled Mr. McKinley to
carry out the terms of a bargain made
at the St. I.ouis convention, in the
face of protests not only from the peo
ple of the city directly interested and
the entire Georgia delegation in Con
gress, but from members of his own
Cabinet. This bargain has brought
about the nomination of J. H.
Deveaux, a negro politician who help
ed Hanna control the Georgia delega
tion to the St. Louis convention, to
be Collector of Customs at Savannah,
Ga. The excuse given by Mr. Mc-
Kinley to Representative Lester, of
Ga., who called at the White House
to make a personal protest in the
name of every merchant who does
business with the Savannah Custom
House against the nomination of a
negro to be collector, was not calcu
lated to add to the respect for him by
the white people of Georgia, or of any
other State. He said in effect that
instead of kicking, the white people of
Georgia ought to thank him, because
he had not appointed negro post
mastets at Savannah and Augusta, as
he had at one time intended to do.
The democrats may not succeed in
preventing the confirmation of this
negro's nomination by the Senate, but
there is consolation in the knowledge
that every negro put in an office of
this sort makes additional democratic
Representative Dingley should give
Senator Hale, of his State, a little
coaching on "prosperity." When Mr.
Hale was attempting, as usual, to de-
fend Spain when it had been attacked
by other Senators, he incidentally
mentioned that there were a million
idle men in the U. S. Now, surely
no sane man would call a country the
size of the U. S. prosperous while a
million men are idle.

The readers of this paper will be
pleased to learn that there is at least
one dreaded disease that science has
been able to cure in all its stages, and
that is Catarrh. Hall's Catarrh Cure
is the only positive cure known to the
medical fraternity. Catarrh being a
constitutional disease, requires a con
stitutional treatment. Hall's Catarrh
Cure is taken internally, acting di
rectly upon the blood and mucous
surfaces of the system, thereby des
troying the foundation of the disease,
and giving the patient strength by
building up the constitution and as
sisting nature in doing its work. The
proprietors have so much faith in its
curative powers, that they offer One
Hundred Dollars for any case that it
fails to cure. Send for list of testi
monials. Address,

Faithless County Officials.
On the conviction of the Schuylkill
county commissioners, the Phila
delphia Times makes these forceful
comments :
It is not an uncommon occurance
for Schuylkill county officials to get
into court on charges of dereliction of
duty in office. The latest litigation
of this kind terminated Saturday at
Pottsville in the conviction of the
three county commissioners for mis
demeanor in office after a trial of four
weeks' duration.
The counts in the indictments
numbered thirty-two, upon nineteen
of which the defendants were convict
ed. They secured acquittal upon
thirteen. The acts complained of
were making temporary loans without
proper authority, the expenditure of
money without warrant of law for
traveling expenses, lobbying against
proposed legislation, junkets, ban
quets, the letting of illegal contracts
and other sins of omission and com
The charge of Judge Bechtel as to
the legal responsibilities of the county
commissioners is one which the
officials of every county would do well
to read and remember. The meat of
it was to the effect that when county
officials take upon themselves the
office to which they are elected they
are not only invested with the powers
conferred, but charged with the per
formance of the duties required by
law, and that on failure to discharge
these duties, whether through ignor
ance, negligence, bad faith, fraud or
corruption, they are liable to indict
ment and conviction for misdemeanor
in office. Not even the plea of ignor
ance is admissible, as it is the busi
ness of the officer to acquaint himself
with the legal obligations of his office
before accepting and entering upon
its duties.
The conviction of the Schuylkill
county commissioners of misdemean
or in office should serve a wider and
more far-reaching purpose than the
punishment of these derelict officials.
It should serve as a warning to all
county officials that public office is a
public trust, to be administered in the
public interest, in strict accordance
with the requirements of law, and
that any official who fails to adminis
ter his office in this spirit does so at
his peril. The modern notion that
public office is a private snap is not
only a fallacy in law and practice, but
a dangerous fallacy to any official who
persists in following it.— Ez.

Loaf of Bread All a Preacher's Family Had
Ono Day.
Jersey Shore citizens have found an
extreme case of poverty in their midst.
The family is that of Rev. Mr. Gar
ner, pastor of the A. M. E. church.
The Spirit says a four cent loaf of
bread was all that he and his family
of seven children had to sustain life
for one day last week. 'Phis he divi
ded among his children', and ate noth
ing himself. The little ones couid
not sleep and about 2 o'clock at night
their cries awoke him and when he
inquired if they were cold they said
•'no, they were hungry.' He left the
house and made his wants known.
He received some money that night
and since then the citizens have taken
steps to see that the family is well
provided for.

sulphide has been investigated by
Professor Mourelo of Madrid. The
pure compound shows no phosphores

of alkali seeming to be necessary and
a trace of subnitrate of bismuth of ad
vantage. After cooling from a high
temperature slowly, the substance is
made strongly phosphorescent by even
a very little light. Pulverization des

restored by long heating with starch.

Martial Law for Alaska.
While the Populists, Anarchists,
and the various odds and ends of other
political and social organizations, are
clamoring for larger liberty, the people
of Alaska are asking tor less. The
inhabitants of that Territory have
petitioned the war department asking
for 800 troops to be sent there at
once, and the martial law be declared
for the protection of persons and pro
perty. The petitioners say as many
as 300 passengers are landed at Dyea
daily, on an avefage, and that many
criminals are included among them ;
so many, in fact, that some stronger
government tnan they have at present
is needed for protection. They ask
martial law to be declared in all parts
of the Territory. A strong appeal is
made to the Washington authorities
to meet the emergency, and as Alaska
is practically without government we
hardly see how Congress can fail to
listen to them.— Ex.
"There now," said the lady of the
house as she came from the front door
with a flimsy yellow dodger in her
hand, "I won't trade a cents' worth

and leave his nasty dodgers telling
about a fake clearance sale. Them
doughnuts have burned while I was
answering the bell, and it's all his
fault. If he would advertise in the
papers I could read it after I get my
work done. It makes me so mad!"
And she tucked the dodger under the
doughnut kettle and rolled up her
sleeves again.

How to Manage the Lamps-
Here are rules which will make a
lamp light a delight, and not a smok
ing, oily nuisance :
| Never let the wick grow very short.
Supply a fresh one when the old one
seems clogged and stiff.
Do not cut the wick. Rub the
charred portion from it with a soft
rag each day.
Fill the oil tank with fresh oil each
day and never fill it quite full. Let
there be at least an inch and a half
free at the top of the tank.
Wipe the outside of the oil tank
and of the whole lamp perfectly dry.
The oily exterior is a frequent cause
of disagreeable odors
Wash the chimney every day and
the shade, if it is of glass or porcelain,
at least once a week. Dry the chim
ney with the regular drying cloth and
polish with soft newspapers or

with a fresh wick, gives a light by

It Was Time Long Ago.
It is announced in a dispatch from
Madrid that "the cost of the Cuban
war from February, 1895, to the end
ot 1897, is officially estimated at $240,-
000,000, besides the arrears due from
the Cuban treasury, amounting to
$40,000,000." From the above
figures it will be observed that the
cost to Spain, in money, of attempt
ing to suppress the insurrection in
Cuba is over $700,000 a month.
Most, it not all, of the quarter of a
billion dollars already expended by
the Madrid government represents
capital borrowed from European
sources. It is understood that Ameri
cans have filed claims for damages
suffered in Cuba, since the insurrec
tion was inaugurated, of from $75,-
000,000 to sioc,ooo,ooo. As Uncle
Sam is expected to guard the interests
of his citizens, it looks as if it was
about time for the American govern
ment to foreclose on Cuba.— Ex.
