In ISBB the foreign demand for corn was 25,000,000 bushels, and in 1808 over 200,000,000 bushels. The world is find ing out the merits of one of nature's best productions. Miss Helen Gould, although possessed of millions, is about to take her first voyage across the Atlantic ocean. She will visit England this summer, and as far as she can arrange it her stay will be incognito. The prize money distributed among our sailors during the civil war amounted to nearly $12,000,000. They have made a good start in this war, and will add rapidly to the prize fund should cur new flying squadron visit the Span ish coasts. George Francis Train recently sent to Representative Sulzer, of New York, an invitation to attend his reception at Mills' I'alace hotel, and in one cor ner of the invitation was printed: "No tablecloths, wines, cards, flowers, airs', fads, fakes or cranks, but bon vivants and cordial welcome." The American troops in the revolu tion numbered 309,781, in the war ol 1812, 556,622, in the Mexican war 112,230, in the civil war 2,778,304. The force varied, but it was always large enough to win the victory. And so it will be in this war. If the 250,000 are not enough, there are plenty more where those caine from. Last 3'ear's exports of wheat and corn were phenomenal, but- the pro saic hog for the first four months of 3898 was sent abroad to the amount of $53,800,000, or more than half the aggregate of l»readstuffs exported. The increased foreign demand for American hog products is another com mercial sign of the times. The general officers and a large num ber of national secretaries of depart ments and state officers of the Non partisan National Woman's Christian Temperance union have issued a cir cular letter to the presidents and facul ties of American colleges urging the importance of guarding their students from the temptations of drink and vice. Maj. Gen. M. C. Butler, of South Caro lina, who lost his field glasses at the battle of Brandy Station, in 1863, as well as a leg, was greatly surprised and pleased the other day to get the field glasses back again, they having been restored to him by Mrs. Kemper, of Virginia. "The last time 1 used these," said the general, "I was a confederate oflicer; now lama Yankee officer." Ex-President Harrison, in speaking of the American navy recently, said: "I consider the American navy, ship for ship, gun for gun, and man for man, un equaled by any navy in the world. The courage and daring of our men, the personnel of the officers of <xur ships, the gunnery, the nerve and spirit mani fested in all, offer to the world the spectacle of a navy for which there is 110 superior." Miss Kingsley has a rival explorer in an Australian lady, Miss Hastie, who has chartered the ship Sydney Belle for a cruise among the least known of the South Sea islands. In particular she is to devote her attention to the Solo anon group, where the fiercest of con temporary cannibals are to be found. Hitherto white men have not been able to penetrate beyond a few miles from the coast, and they have almost invari ably had some of their number killed or captured for the cannibal ovens. There are in round numbers 200,000 miles of cable under the rivers, bays and oceans of the world at the present time, and these are under the control of some 30 different governments and as many private companies. This great stretch of wire weighs probably 8,000,- 000 tons and is enough to encircle the globe eight times. It does not really -encircle the globe, for the. Pacific has never been crossed by the cable, but the Atlantic and Indian oceans and nearly all the smaller seas have been. There are 12 cables crossing l the Atlantic, it is said. Mascots are the order of the day in camp and on shipboard and a new style may come into use, for a woman in cen tral New York has offered her twin babies, whom she describes as fine boys 11 monehs old. to the secretary of the navy as mascots. She prefers that they should be placed upon the lowa and New York, of Admiral Sampson's fleet, as she says she knows more about these ships than any others, but she is not particular, as long as the infants are honored by cradles upon American cruisers. This is the most peculiar ex hibition of patriotism yet offered. BONDS AND REVENUE. iitcli V\ lil«*h Show Th»t «he Uovern- Oi**nlal Ini'itniv la Mot KUIIIIIK Off. 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 fore alteration substantially the full amount of revenue expected and re quired. 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 ly- IP'The remarks of friends of Mr. Bryan tend to the inference that, so far as he is concerned, the war is to be used to promote his political aspira tions. —Indianapolis Journal. CAMERON COUNTY PRESS, THURSDAY, COPPERHEADS AGAIN. Democrat* Who Voted Aicainat lh* litMtac OF IIOIMU for Uiir I'uriioam. ; 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 (hem, the war will be carried through triumphantly, with the energy, the di rectness. the good faith and the pat riotism of Lincoln and Grant.—St. Louis Globe-Democrat. COMMENT AND OPINION. after column of figures prepared by the treasury department eouH be given to prove that the re publican party has been true to all of its pledges.—Towa State Register. ITT" Kansas is in line. The Kansas re publicans said at their state conven tion that the national administration was all right "in peace and in war," and that there was nothing the matter with McKinlev.—Troy Times. IT7"That. is u misleading dispatch which describes the state conventions of democrats, populists and silver re publicans in Michigan as "dividing the offices." What they did was to divide the nominations. The republicans will retain the offices. —Boston Journal. ITT'Oregon republicans have battered down the democratic fortifications in that state. It is a notable triumph The republicans were opposed by per haps the most formidable fusion in the history of that state. It was composed not only of democrats and populists, but of silver republicans.—American Tribune. IWThe democrats, populists and sil ver republicans in Xebraska will fol low the example of their friends in Oregon by fusing to beat the repub licans. As a result they are merely likely to expose their own weakness and prove the strength of their adver 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. One of the Chicago banks has even offered to take $100,000,000 in bonds at two per cent. During the civil wtr our government paid seven per cent, in terest for its loans. —lowa State lirgis ter. CAUGHT IN A STORM. SIX FatalltieA Fol!c»w the CH|MIXIII|; of an KienrMion Steamer. 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 tion, it appears likely that the list of dead may reach a score. The follow ing bodies were recovered from the wreck: Mrs. Catherine D. Weber, 25 years old. of Beverly. Miss Grace Snell, 13 years old, daughter of Arthur Snell, of Beverly. Three-year-old son of John Kenney, of Beverly. Two unidentified women; one uni dentified (5-year-old boy. The vessel had just reached Beverly bar when the storm struck the boat and at the same time a lightning bolt struck the beacon at the end of the bar. 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. Beverly, Mass., July 6.—The death of Mrs. Samuel Emerson, of North Beverly, which occurred yesterday, brings the list of known fatalities re sulting from the foundering of the excursion steamer Surf City in this harbor Monday evening up to eight. A DEADLY SWATH. Tornado Kweept* Over a New llnmpHhire Town —Nino I'eople are Killed and Many lujured. Hampton, N. IT., July 5.—A torna do struck Hampton Beach at 3:15 p. m. Monday, causing immense damage to property and great loss of life. Cottages were blown flat; horses were picked up bodily and dashed against buildings; vehicles were carried many feet; barns were unroofed, large trees snapped off at their roots and others were torn up bodily. The tornado touched the beach at a place about half a mile north of Whittier's hotel and cut a swath 10 yards wide in a westerly direction, moving in rotary shape until it passed out to sea. Twenty cottages were torn down and several small hotels completely wrecked. The greatest loss of lite and injury came with the demolition of the old skating rink, a one-story structure of wood, 500 by 100 feet in size. Here from"7s to 125 persons were seriously injured, tin unknown num ber slightly injured and four persons arc already dead. A yacht owned by ("apt. Frank Mudd, of this place, was sailing off the beach and was in the path of the storm. In it were nine persons and of these five were drowned. They were: Walter. Gertrude and Kalph Hodge son. Kensington. X. 11. Mrs. W. 11. Parker, Kensington. ('apt. Mudd, Hampton. The others in the boat are believed to have been saved. The list of dead un shore is as fol lows: Mora, the actress, of Xew York, who was playing in a piece entitled "The Blowing Up of the Maine." Miss Mae I'rescott, Exeter. Samuel Cammet, Exeter. W. H. Carlson, Exeter. Among those believed to be fatally injured in the pavillion are: Miss O. D. Pressey, of Haverhill, Mass., frac tured skull; J. F. Pennington and W. 11. Barber, both of Exeter. Carlson was taken out dead, but Mora, the actress, was alive when found and died shortly after. NEWS FROM DEWEY.

Washington. .July 7. —The annexa tion of Hawaii is accomplished so far 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 vote in the elections in Hawaii. De feated—4H to 10. Mr. Lindsay offered as a substitute for the resolutions certain sections of the annexation treaty which was un der discussion last winter. They were rejected—47 to 17. Xo more amendments lieing offered, the resolutions having been consid ered in committee of the whole were reported to the senate and adopted— -42 to 21. Mr. Morrill was the only republi can who voted against the resolu tions. Six democrats —Messrs. Gor man. McLanrin. Money, Morgan. I'et tus and Sullivan—voted in favor of annexation.

LAST OF CERVERA'S FLEET. American Squadron Oentroyed It After a Mldniirht Sortie hy the Spaniard*. Santiairo de Cuba, via Kingston. July 7. —The destruction of the Span ish cruiser Reitia Mercedes accounts for the last ship of Admiral Cervera's 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 out of water. Her sinking was most dramatic. Just after midnight Sunday she was seen drifting slowly out of the narrow 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, but all were at quarters and no one was hurt. Xo other American ship was hit during the engagement, which lasted only a few minutes.

At times I would feel well enough, and other timea was miserable. So it went on until last October, I felt something terrible creeping over me, I knew not what, but kept getting worse. I can hardly explain my feelings at that time. I was so depressed in spirits that I did not wish to livo, although I had everything to live for. Had hys teria, was very nervous; could not 6leep and was not safe to be left alone. " Indeed, I thought I would lose my mind. No one knows what I endured. " 1 continued this way until the lafA of February, when I saw in a paper » testimonial of a lady whose case wis similar to mine, and who had been cured by Lydia E. Pinkliam's Vegeta ble Compound.
