It is both gratifying anil somewhat
(surprising that the revenue, as yet
scarcely affected by a single provision
of the new law, which will take effect
as to nearly all its clauses July 1, never
theless keeps up so well. It was
naturally apprehended when war broke
out that it would to some extent affect
foreign commerce, and not merely the
imports from Spain and Spanish pos
sessions, but also imports from other
pifints with which trade had been main
ly in American vessels. For a time there
did appear a distinct decrease in the
amount of imports and the duties de
rived from them. IJut it sounds like a
joke in these days to ryention the fran
tic anxiety shown by shippers to get
war risks at high rates on their goods,
and by owners of buildings to get spe
cial insurance against bombardment.
It has i ot taken long- to convince the
people that Spain has never had a re
spectable chance of doing harm to any
well-fortified seaport or to an appre
ciable share of American shipping
Commerce lias quickly resumer its nor
mal volume so far that the duties 011 im
ports are fully up to reasonable expec
•■ations for the season.
When the Dingley law was first crit
icised data were presented showing
that if it yielded $1,000,000 daily it
would a little more than meet the or
dinary expenses of the government as
they had been met for four years, and
that if it attained that measure of suc
cess within six months after its enact
ment the natural expansion of business
would insure a moderate surplus in
subsequent years. The revenue
reached that point in February, and in
epite of apprehensions caused by the
destruction of the Maine and general
preparations for war, nearly the same
rate was maintained in March. Dur
ing 30 days of April, exclusive of $2,-
(.51,500 received from the sale of the
Kansas Pacific railway, the revenue was
$30,361,443, and in May it was $30,074,-
810—not quite $1,000,000 short of the
rate required in the month after war
began. In June the revenue in 18 days
was $18,737,300, and on the day the war
tax bill was approved the revenue for
the month had been close to the desired
average—sl2,4o7,329 in 13 days—having
since gained $2,700,000 in customs re
ceipts for five days.
These facts may well be placed on
record and kept in mind, because they
show how the Dingley law was closely
answering the expectations of its
framers and supporters down to the last
day of its existence without modifica
tion, and that in spite of foreign alarms
and at last of war, affecting to some
extent the course of foreign trade.
With a natural growth of business in
harmony with the growth of population,
it is proved that the act would have
yielded by the end of the fiscal year
some surplus, with certainty of its grad
ual increase, over the expenses of the
government during the preceding four
years. As the problem to be considered
from this time forward is a very differ
ent one, both because the rate of taxa<-
tion has been greatly changed to meet
an emergency and because the ex
penditures of the government will run
far beyond the ordinary limit of recent
years, it should be set down us,an his
torical fact that after the effect of
anticipatory imports had measurably
though not wholly passed the Dingley
act came to yield, in 'ts later months be

amount of revenue expected and re
It will be a much more difficult mat
ter to judge of forthcoming revenue
after the new fiscal year begins with
its new war taxes. No experience af
fords a reliable indication of their re
sult, nor has any calculation been pos
sible giving other than reasonably con
jectural estimates. It is also highly
probable that, partly through deliberate
opposition to taxes and partly through
negligence the penalties of which men
will not recognize at first, the new
taxes will yield for some little time
much less than may be expected from
them after the public has become bet
ter acquainted with the provisions of
the law. The country will be some
what in the dark as to its revenues,
and very much in tine dark as to its ex
penditures, which Kay be materially
increased in any mo&th by the fortunes
of war. The assurance that the Ameri
can people are ready and eager to ad
vance their wealth upon government
securities more favorable to the nation
than most nations have ever been able
to place in time of war is therefore of
the highest importance, since it re
moves from the situation ground for
apprehension about the resources of the
treasury and the soundness of the
surrency. It is not out of place also
to give full credit, to Secretary Gage
for the good sense shown in urging
speedy provision for a loan while the
people were ready for it.and without
waiting for possible disappointments
either in amount of war expenditures
or in the productiveness of the new
revenue law. —N. Y. Tribune.
rush of people to invest Iheir
savings in the new government bonds
justifies Secretary Gage's judgment.
He has shown the far-reaching sagacity
of a statesman and financier. The ef
fects of this general distribution of the
government loan among the people can
not be comprehended. The seeds of
sound money wil! be 'planted wherever
a bond is sold, for it is safe to say that
whatever the political affiliations of
the bond-holder may have been in the
past, in the future they will be found
always and ever on the side of the
soundest kind of money.—Leslie's Week

Democrat* Who Voted Aicainat lh*
litMtac OF IIOIMU for Uiir
; A review of the recent proceedings
of many democrats in congress, and
'of the course of a large portion of the
I democratic press, reveals a strong de
,sire to embarrass the government in
carrying on the war. The democratic
I party, as an organization, shows adis-
I position to open a rear fire upon our
i armies by crippling, if possible, the ad-
I ministriation charged with the con
'duct of military operations. This
( policy is in surprising contrast with
; the eagerness of democratic congress
( men, before hostilities opened, to force
j the republican members to rush at
once into the most warlike measures.
Democrats in congress demanded and
voted for the immediate recognition
of the republic of Cuba, a step that
would have caused war with Spain, as
well as subjected this country to end
less perplexities in dealing with Cuban
realities. Before the war Mr. Bailey
was on the floor of the house nearly
every day, noisily urging war and rec
ognition. and nagging the speaker and
the republican ma jority because Spain
was not bearded witli a fiery ultima
tum and Cuba proclaimed an indepen
dent nation of the earth.
At length war was declared. Then
came up the necessary legislation to
make it successful. A Rubicon having
been crossed a very large number of
democrats in both houses of congress,
aided by the populists, suddenly be
came oblivious to the gr< at task in
hand, and began to play politics on the
currency question. Opposition to the
issue of bonds to pay the expenses of
the war was developed. All the demo
crats in thi> senate except seven votc<?
against the war revenue bill because
it authorized a loan secured by bonds.
The annexation of Hawaii, which has
become imperative through our mili
tary use of the islands, has met with
the same kind of democratic treat
ment. Mr. Bailey was so much dis
pleased because a number of demo
crats voted for annexation that he de
mands hereafter unanimity through
the caucus. Tn the senate, day after
day, democratic find populist members
are wasting the time and strength of
their fellow members to prevent the
affirmative vote on annexation that,
will come the moment a ballot can be
reached. Then republicans are
charged with "imperialism," though
they have done nothing more than
hold for future action the territory
wrested from Spain in battle.
Tf the democratic lenders insist that,
this shall be a republican warthev wi'l
be permitted to have their way about
it. A capable republican administra
tion directs it and will press it vigor
ously, with honor and complete suc
cess. Of course the men in the ranks
represent all parties. Tt is all the niorf
reason why the opposition in congress
should vote to strengthen them for
their arduous and heroic work in
every possible way. The soldiers and
sailors of the United States will be
paid in dollars as good as fold and not
in money debased one-half, though
nearly all the democrats in congress
are ready and anxious to cut down thf.
soldiers' sls a month to that extent.
Numerous democratic papers nre
snarling about military operations.
An American reserve would bring out
a large assortment of copperheads and
democratic pullbacks. The symptoms
of their reactionary purposes are too
plain to be mistaken. But. in spite of

rectness. the good faith and the pat
riotism of Lincoln and Grant.—St.

low the example of their friends in

saries, as their friends in the Pacific
state did.—Chicago Tribune.
CThe sound money democrats of
Pennsylvania remark in their address
that the adoption of the gold stand
ard in every leading country has been
attended by an ample and increasing
supply of gold for all tlie requirements
of trade. This well-ascertained fact
has spoiled a large assortment, of silver
arguments.— St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
ICThat the gold standard has placed
this country's credit higher than any
other nation is evidenced by the fact
that we are now borrowing money for
three per cent, interest. Xo other na
tion on earth can borrow it for less.

offered to take $100,000,000 in bonds at
two per cent. During the civil wtr our

lieverly, Mass., July s.—The small
excursion steamer Surf City, with
about 60 passengers on board, while
half way over from Salem Willows to
her wharf here, a distance of about
two miles, was struck by a terrific
squall about 0 o'clock last night and
capsized. Of those on board a large
majority are believed to have been
rescued by boats from both the Salem
and Beverly shores, but six bodies had
been recovered at dark, and as it is
known that many rushed into the
eaiiin before the squall, it is thought
that twice as many bodies are still
confined there. As one or two of those
taken ashore are in a critical condi

dead may reach a score. The follow

Amid the terrible din of the thunder
which followed the lightning flash and
the fearful whirlwind, the little
steamer careened over to starboard
and went down, all so suddenly that
even the commander had the greatest
difficulty in getting out of the boat.
The steamer was seen togo down
by persons on both sides of the bay
and boats immediately put out to I he
wreck, reaching her in a few minutes.
Those in the water were quickly
hauled aboard, and with the living
were drawn into the boat a number of
dead, including the bodies of two
child ren.
The scene while the work of rescue
was going on was a fearful one, as
over half of those on board were wo
men and their screams could be heard
for miles. Many clung to the top of
the hurricane deck and supported
themselves until the boats came, while
others grasped the flagstaff's and even
the smokestack.

to property and great loss of life.
Cottages were blown flat; horses were
picked up bodily and dashed against

Washington. .July 7. —The annexa

as congress is concerned. Quite unex
pectedly the resolutions providing for
the annexation of the islands were
brought to a vote in the senate late
Wednesday afternoon and they were
passed by a vote of 42 to 21. The op
ponents of annexation had about con
cluded their arguments and an
nounced their willingness that a vote
should be taken as soon as Mr. White,
Mr. l'ettigrew and Mr. Allen had fin
ished their speeches.
At the conclusion of Mr. Allen's
speech. Mr. White offered an amend
ment striking from the preamble of
the Hawaiian resolutions the words
"indue form" and inserting the words
"by a treaty which has never been
ratified. liut is now pending in the
senate of the United States."
After a statement by Mr. Hale in
which he said he supported the resolu
tion. but not as a war measure, a vote
was taken on Mr. White's amendment.
Tt was rejected- 40 to 20.
Mr. l'ettigrew then offered his
amendment to repeal the contract
labor laws now in force on the Ha
waiian islands. It was rejected—4l
to 22.
Mr. Bacon offered an amendment
providing that the annexation resolu
tions should not be operative until
they had been approved by a majority
of the electors of Hawaii. Defeated—
-20 to 42.
Mr. Faulkner offered an amendment
providing that the duties of the civil,
judicial and military powers shall be
exercised under authority of existing
laws not in conflict with the constitu
tion and laws of the United States.
Rejected—2o to 43.
Mr. Allen offered an amendment
placing an internal revenue tax of one
cent a pound on Hawaiidn sugar. It
•was defeated —57 to 4.
Mr. l'ettigrew offered an amend
ment that all native-born male Ha
waiian s over 21 years of age and all
naturalized aliens shall be allowed to

once splendid squadron. She lies in
plain view, her bow resting on the
base of the beaeli under Kl Morm.
Part of the hull is above water aiul
her masts and two stacks are entirely

Her sinking was most dramatic.
Just after midnight Sunday she was

entrance by one of the American
scouts. Tn a moment the fleet was
ablaze with signals and instantly an
awful hail of shells was hammering
down upon her. Tt is iw>t known
whether she returned the fire, but the
shore batteries opened and one 6-incli
shell fell on the Indiana's forward
deck, exploding below. The explosion
occurred in the men's sleeping rooms,

was hurt. Xo other American ship

Man suffers many mysterious ailments
from unknown causes, and nine-tenths of
them have their origin in the digestive canal
somewhere. It does any person good to
clean out this canal occasionally in a rational
way, provided it is not done in a violent
manner. The proper cleansing and disin
fecting preparation is Cascarets Candy Ca
thartic, which are very gentle, but at the
same time thoroughly effective. A 10c bos

cases remove the cause of ill health. When
"feeling bad" take Cascarets. They will <3a
you good, and can do you no harm.

testimonial of a lady whose case wis
similar to mine, and who had been
cured by Lydia E. Pinkliam's Vegeta
