One of the gratifying and unexpect

the friendly attitude of Japan. So far

Alaska as a representative of the gov
ernment to ascertain the agricultural
resources of that country and to con
duct a series of experiments with the
coils there. A resolution passed by
congress a month ago placed SIO,OOO in
his hands for the purpose of carrying
on the investigation.
This administration, the closing one
of the nineteenth century, will be a
historic one. It will have witnessed
the beginning and ending of the Span
ish war, the recognition of the United
States as a world-power, the annexa
tion of Hawaii, the liberation of Cuba,
and probably the acquisition of Puerto
Jlico and the establishment of a new
government in the Philippines.

Statistics published by the treasury

of the previous year of $180,318,312.
The imports free and dutiable were
$616,052,844, less by $148,677,568 than
those of the previous year. Of gold,in
coin, bullion and ore, there were ex

Mes'f*. Altgeld, Harrison, and a
number of other free silver democrats
of less prominence, held a state con
\ention at Springfield the other day
and adopted a platform, so that the
rank and file of the party inay know
what they are to believe for the next
two years. According to the platform
loyalty to the party during that peri
od will consist in adherence to the doc
trine that congress ought to change
the money standard, so that tlie dol
lar may have a purchasing power of
only about 44 cents instead of 100 cents,
and that by retroactive legislation eon
press should compel those to whom 100-
eent dollars are owing to take 41-eent
dollars as equivalent.
This is the doctrine preached by-
Bryan two years ago, and the Illinois
democrats are notified that they must
be faithful to if or be denounced as
traitors. Hut while those democrats
will be expected to obey the orders of
the convention and hurrah for free
coinage, the platform fails to set forth
any reason why they should indorse a
policy which, if put into effect, would
injure every one of them. If they are
wage-workers 1 he purchasing power of
their wages would be reduced. If they
are savings bank depositors those de
posits would be sealed down nearly 60
per cent. If they are old soldiers their
pensions would be cut down that
Honest platform writers would tell
the plain, simple-minded, ignorant
democrats that and then proceed to
explain to them why they and their
fellow citizens who do not belong l to
the democratic party, ought to be sub
jected to such grievous loss. But as
frankness and honesty are not the dis
tinguishing traits of the men who
drafted the platform adopted at this
convention, no effort was made to en
lighten the democratic masses ns to
the disastrous consequences of free
coinage, and to argue with them and
show why in spite of those conse
quences they should vote for demo
cratic candidates. Nor will one of
those candidates or one of the party
stumpers or papers reveal to the
voters the "true inwardness" of free
coinage, and give some reason why.
notwithstanding its immorality and
destructiveness, it is entitled to pop
ular support. It is not remarkable
that the free-silver democrats should
have recognized Bryan as the leading
exponent of this heresy and pro
claimed him as their leader in the cam
paign of 1900.
The platform denounces '"govern
ment by injunction." Illinois dem
ocratic conventions will keep on de
nouncing the righteous decision of
the supreme court in the Debs case as
long as Altgeld runs conventions in
this state. The action of the supreme
court, participated in by better demo
crats than Altgeld ever was or will be.
has been indorsed by the people of
Illinois. Delis, the "martyr" of 1894,
has become an innocuous creature, to
the great relief of the public, and yet
Altgeld, through his convention, keeps
on groaning about "government by
injunction" and thrusting a dead issue
upon the voters.
The platform further denounces the
state civil service law and recommends
that the question of its repeal be sub
mitted to a vote of the people at the
next general election. This was to
have been expected from a convention
made up of spoilsmen. As in the mat
ter of free coinage, it would have been
dealing more honestly with the dem
ocratic voters if the platform-makers
had told them why the law should be
repealed and explained that it was
necessary in order to enable the spoils
politicians to divide up the offices
among their retainers and that this
was the only reason. Tint, if ever the
question of its repeal should be made
an issue the majority for retaining
the law would' be the bigcest ever
polled in Illinois. —Chicago Tribune.

CAMERON COUNTY PRESS, THURSDAY, JULY 28, 1898.
CONDITIONS ARE FAVORABLE.
The Conniry I* Feelinur Pretty Com
fort a l»Io After One Vrarof Mc«
The first full fiscal year of President
McKinley's administration closed with
the beginning of July. The country
finds itself in the midst of a war
which is being indorsed by every polit
ical convention, democratic as well as
republican. This is a new experi
ence for tlie American people. For the
first time in its history the nation is a
unit in approving and vigorously pros
ecuting the war in which it- has be
come involved. Always before there
has been, in time of war, as well as in
advance of it, a peace-at-nny-price
party. Now that sentiment is» eon
fined to collegiate senility. Herein
President McKlnley has behind him
the whole people as none of his prede
cessors ever had.
We must wait a few days longer for
the statistics of the old fiscal year.
But enough is known to warrant the
assertion that it will make a most en
couraging showing, especially as com
pared with the previous fiscal year.
The only basis of comparison now is
the first 11 months of last year
and the year before- Our imports
exceeded our exports in those month',
of 1897 to the amount of $14,487,75.'!,
but in 1898 the exports exceeded the
imports, $208,003,917, a difference in
favor of 1898 of over $222,000,000.
This enormous balance of trade
in our favor has had the effect of
greatly increasing the country's stock
of gold, the imports of which during
the 11 months exceeded the exports
to the amount of $102,026,985. This
gold lias gone into the circulation of
the country, and added that much to
the actual currency of the people.
The total receipts of the treasury
for the first ten months of fhe three
tariffs of this decade have been pub
lished and serve as a powerful statis
tical indorsement of the present ad
ministration. The Dingley tariff has
now been in operation ten months.
The receipts of the treasury for that
time, exclusive of Pacific railroad
sales, were $265,559,700. The receipts
for the first ten months of the Wilson
tariff were $234,3.16,431; for the first
ten months of the McKinley tariff,
$312,062,508. The res-ults under the
Dingley tariff were substantially as
predicted by Mr. Dingley in his speech
in support of the bill in its final form.
The republican party does not indulge
in random guesses on matters suscep
tible of close estimates, and its calcu
lations, like its promises, can be re
lied upon.—Chicago Inter Ocean.

With June 30, the fiscal year, the
(government receipts which will be
charged against the Dingley bill, al
though it did not take effect until July
24, 1897, came to a close. The gross re
ceipts for the year, subject to revision,
Internal revenue 168,931,011
Included in the miscellaneous re
ceipts was $64,757,223 from the Union
Pacific and Kansas Pacific railway sale,
reducing the total revenue from ordi
nary sources to $338,203,186, against
$347,721,905 for the last year of the Wil
As a matter of fact more than $40,-
000,000 credited to the last fiscal year
under the Wilson law was in the nature
of anticipatory payments for importa
tions arid withdrawal from bond which*
in the ordinary course of business
would have been paid during the fiscal
year 1897-1898 and would have added
that much to the receipts under the
Dingley bill while reducing those under
the Wilson law by so much. With this
just rectification it is evident that the
Dingley tariff as a revenue producer
was some $70,000,000 better than fhe
Wilson law it superseded.
The unrevised expenditures for th»
last fiscal year were as follows:
Civil and miscellaneous $ 96.n44.fi7X
Indians 11.002.15 C
Pensions 147. 920
All the items in the above table ex
cept those for Indians and interest are
higher than the expenditures for the
same account last year. But naturally
the chief increase is in the expense for
the army and navy. This amounts to
not less than $67,000,000. or $27,000,000
more than the deficit for the whole
year. But for the war our financial
statement for flic last fiscal year would
have shown a gratifying surplus.—Chi

AN INFUSION OF NEW LIFE.
Commerce In Santiago Revive* Since the
Occupation of the City by American
Santiago de Cuba, July 21. —San-
tiago presents a bright and cheerful
picture to what it did a few days ago.
Over 30 steamers flying the stars and
stripes lie in or near the harbor.
Small boats are plying briskly to and
fro on the water. Several large steam
ers, the State of Texas, Leona and
Aranzas are alongside the wharves,
busily engaged in unloading large
cargos of supplies and provisions.
Everything denotes bustle and ac
tivity. Tt the graveyard appearance
of the city recently has succeeded a
scene of life and energy, traffic and
general activity. The immense sheds
along the water front are already
packed with merchandise and the
large stores rented along Marina
street are busy receiving goods which
are being steadily unloaded. Every
where there are signs of a revival of
commercial activity and prosperity.
The change in the appearance of the
city is kaleidoscopic and a couple of
days, when further shipments arrive,
will suffice for the normal business to
revive. The business houses opened
their doors for the first time on Tues
day, cleared their warehouses and
made ready for the receipt of goods.
The electric light plant is working.
The pawnshops are doing a rushing
business, their counters being crowded
by people of all sorts of color and
condition, pawning heirlooms, clothes,
dresses arid furniture. Officers tender
their medals, spurs and swords, and
civil employes offer their tortoise
shell, gold-lieaded canes of office for
a mere song, which are in turn bought
at fancy prices by American soldiers,
officers or newspaper correspondents
as relics of the war. There have been
more machetes sold to our men as
souvenirs than were laid down on the
morning of the surrender, and crosses,
service stripes and orders are cheer
fully parted with for American cash.
There is no ready made clothing in
the city except blue and white striped
linen uniforms, and many of mir men
are dressed in these Spanish uni
Many of the Spanish soldiers are
anxious to become American citizens.
A number of the officers of high rank
in the Spanish army condemn their
government's policy in dividing its
forces in Cuba, Porto Uico and the
Philippines, instead of concentrating
them and possibly saving one colony.
The cutting of the fleet is also strong
ly censured and the Spanish naval
officers all argue that it is impossible
under the present crippled condition
of Spain to make a successful resist
ance anywhere. The usable ammuni
tion of the Spanish troops here was
enhausted before the surrender, as the
2,000,000 cartridges found in the maga
zines of Santiago do not tit the Mauser
The Spaniards say that on July 1
our troops could have walked into the
city without having a shot fired at
them, as there were no soldiers left
within the walls at that time.
Hundreds of American and Spanish
soldiers who but a few days ago were
shooting at each other, crowd the
streets of Santiago to-day, meeting
and mixing on the most friendly
terms. A general feeling of good fel
lowship is evinced everywhere, victors
and vanquished apparently being
equally glad that the strife, is over.
About 4,000 Spanish troops still re
main in the city, but the majority of
them will be removed so soon as a
camping ground beyond the rifle pits
can be arranged.
Reunion of Confederate Veteran*.
Atlanta, Ga., July 21.—Ten thou
sand Confederate veterans and their
friends filled the vast auditorium at
Piedmont park yesterday and cheered
to the echo speeches which eulo
gized the Confederacy, extolled "one
nation" and cast glowing tributes
upon the records of the soldiers of the
south in the war with Spain. Gen.
Gordon delivered a splendid speech,
which thrilled the hearts of his audit
ors and set the rebel yell echoing into
the rafters. The oration of the day
was delivered by Gen. Charles E.

Miles to Porto Rico got away froai
here at 7 o'clock last evening. The
expedition is under command of Maj.
Gen. J. H. Wilson and will, when com
plete, consist of the Second and Third
Wisconsin, the Sixteenth Pennsyl
vania and two companies of the Sixth
Illinois. The first two regiments are
on the transports Grand Duchess and
No. 30 respectively and they are at
•tea. No. 21, carrying the Sixteenth
Pennsylvania and the Illinois men is
!n the stream and will sail this morn
ing. Each of the ships carries a large
qantity of supplies, and on the No. 21
there are 1,000 head of mules and the
wagon train of Gen. Wilson's division.
The scene which accompanied the
departure of the vessels from their
docks was one of indescribable en
thusiasm. The entire population of
the city was in evidence. As the ves
sels left the stream the Viands on
shipboard and ashore played national
airs and the people cheered like mad.
The expedition will sail directly for
Washington. July 21.—Secretary
Alger said last night that he expected
Gen. Miles, one brigade of infantry
and some artillery would leave Cuba
immediately under convoy of a strong
naval squadron for fhe invasion of
Porto Ivico. He expressed the hope
that the troops were already en route
to Porto Pico. Most of them had been
oil board the transports for several
days and the situation was becoming
trying for them. Orders were sent
yesterday to Admiral Sampson to
start at once with his fleet for the
landing place in Porto Kico which has
been determined upon by the war au
SEALED UP THE CABLE.

Washington. July 21.—Two days
ago Chief Signal Officer Greeley cabled
instructions to his officers in Santiago
to seal up and place a guard over the
three cable lines connecting Santiago
with Cienfuegos. whence by a land
line communication is established
with Havana. Yesterday Mr. Greeley
was informed that his orders had been
carried into effect. The closing of the
Cienfuegos cables absolutely isolates
Havana and Gen. Blanco from Madrid.
Blanco's only means of communica
tion with Madrid now is by the Key
West cable, which is under the strict
est censorship by our government. As
a result of the sealing of the San
tiago-Cienfuegos cables several cipher
dispatches passing between Blanco
and the Spanish government drifted
into this country yesterday. It is
sort reel y necessary to say they did not
reach their destination.

Washington, July 21.—Interest at
Camp Alger was divided yesterday
among the subjects of moving camp,
typhoid fever and a possible order to
move southward. Nothing has been
heard to indicate that any of the Sec
ond corps has been selected togo to
Porto Rico, and it is believed that the
transfer of troops to Dunn boring in
dicates that the regiments there will
remain some time. There are 80 cases
of typhoid fever at Fort Myer. Most
of them are not of a serious nature.
Four new cases were reported yester
day, all from the Sixth New York.

"Well, explained the curious woman, "my
friend in the next room and I have been
wondering about you. You walk about the
hall with such a light and springy step that
we wonder about what kind of an operation
you have undergone."
The curious woman held her ground. She
was determined to know what was the mat

The dignified woman replied:
'I have not been operated upon yet."

"No, I am not familiar with operations,"
