The Bank Examiner.
AM, RECORDS of bank thiev
ing have probably been
broken by the assistant
cashier and bookkeeper of
the Ormnn National bank, at
Newpoit, Ky., who embezzled one
hundred thousand dollars In excess
of the entire capital stock of
the bank. Unlike Note Teller
Alvoid, of New York, who had
Immense resources to draw upon, this
last, good man to go wrong has dis
played most lemarkable genius in act
lrg in a subordinate position und pro
ducing a shortage more than double
the capital stock of the institution at
which ho was employed. Investigation
shows that his transactions have ex
tended over a period of ten years un
der the eyes of the ofllcials over him
and the bank examiners who made oc
casional visits to the German National
and consulted figures and currency.
This circumstance serves to streng
then the existing doubts of many as
to the ability of the bank examiner to
accomplish what lie Is paid to ac
complish. It would seem that In
this last Instance at least a bank ex
aminer should have been able to de
tect irregularities before the clerk had
succeeded in using up everything In
the bank but) the books and furniture.
In the New York defalcation the crim
inal had almost unlimited resources to
work upon and ample opportunity to
cover up his peculations, but in the
case of the humble clerk in the country
town it was different. The success of
bookkeeper Brown, of Newport, leads
to a repetition of the question, Does
the bank examiner examine?
The observing citizen intimates that
It would bo Impossible for Tammany to
carry on the movement against vice to
any lengUi. Without vice there could
be no Tammany.
Colonizing Remote Regions.
IN SOME of its details the problem
of pacillcatlon and development
illicit confronts the United
States In the Philippines, says
the Chicago Record, Is similar to that
with which the French are striving In
Madagascar. The French llnd them
selves in power in a tropical country
In which the native population has a
crude civilization of its own. Resist
ance to French rule has not ceased
at any time, though n possibility be
gins to appear that the large army
of occupation may be reduced slowly
fiom this time forward. In order to
assume the greatest pioflt from the
colony It Is desired to extend Its com
merce and develop Its Industries as
fully as possible. Those parallels apply
closely to our own conditions in the
Philippines, and a Franch solution of
one point of dlfllculty proves Interest
ing. The Record's correspondent In Mar
seilles writes of an effort made by
tho French to Induce colonization In
Madagascar. The military governor
of tho great Island hopes to retain
an settlers in the colony such soldiers
In the army of occupation as can bo
tempted to stay after their terms of
enlistment expiie. The men are offered
laigo laud grants and an annual sub
sidy from the French government of
$431 for two consecutive years. Such
bottlers must engage to remain for
three years, to cultivate the land and
to hold themselves In readiness to
serve with tho defensive forces In the
event of an attack by hostile natives.
Tho experiment Is proving successful,
the allotments have been cultivated
piolltably under the advice of govern
ment experts and many of the farmers
after the first year send to France
for their families, thus Indicating an
iiUentlou to stay In the colony where
they are founding their piosperity.
Tho question arises If the time Is
going to come when tho United States
will need to adopt a similar couise In
tho Philippines, Up to this tlmo virtu,
ally the whole American emigration to
the Philippines has been composed of
a few merchants, traveling salesmen,
saloonkeepers and mining prospectors,
Somo of tho Anierlcuu soldiers whose
time of enlistment has expired have
remained to take up tho same em
ployments or the trades in which they
happened to bo skilled. One of the
questions yet to be worked out to an
answer 3 whether or not the Islands
are to bo drilled Into an American form
of civilization, if they ate It cannot
bo bytho teachings of a few merchunts
und shipping ugents In the more at
tractive ports, nor yet by the adven
turous mining prospector. Thero will
havo to be many genuine settlers and
the development of tho natural wealth
of tho Islands by men who will go,
to them und stay there, The hasty
effort to make a fortune and then to
return "home" never yet mado a suc
cessful colony. With the wide oppor
tunities yet open in America It may
not bo easy to Induce young men to
Immolate themselves on the altar of.
tropical colonization. Will the Mc
Klnley policy Include tho offer of land
grants and subsidies to tempt ener
getic young men to leave the United
Slates for tho l'hllUiplnes?
The Colorado coroner's Jury that de
liberated over the ashes of the colored
boy who wns burned nt a stake tho
other night near Llmon, rendered a
verdict) that "death wns at the hands
of parties unknown." This must bo
discouraging to the reporters, tele
graph operators and photographers
who nccompanled the lynching party
In order that nil details of the horrible
scene might he correctly tecorded.
Reduction of the South's Repre
sentation in Congress.
(1'roin tho t'lilcnro Times llcinld.)
WHILE THE Soutli will no
doubt vigorously oppose
tho representation In
congress of those states
which have disfranchised tho negro,
there are good reasons for believing
that such reductions would ultimately
contribute to the permanent) welfare
of that .section of the Union,
Cutting down tho congressional rep
resentation of such stutes as North
and South Carolina, Louisiana, and
Mississippi is plainly defensible as a
matter of political equity und Justice.
The right and power of congress to do
It could not be successfully challenged.
The only question Involved w'ould bo
questions of political expediency or
wisdom. Cut when four states hnve
deliberately disfranchised a large ele
ment' of their citizens In direct viola
tion of the fourteenth and fifteenth
amendments to the federal Constitu
tion it may be gravely questioned
whether congress should permit any
questions of party expediency to Inter
fere with nn net of plain justice and
equity. The party now In power Is not
In need of any advantage that might
accrue from reducing the strength of
these states in congress and In t'he
electoral college. Hut .does not the
proposition Involve u question of jus
tice to the other states of the Union?
Should t'hese states enjoy the unfair
advantage of representation in con
gress based largely upon a population
which has been disfranchised?
Tho total negro population of the
four southern states which have dis
franchised the colored citizen, accord
ing to the census of 1890, was 2,oofi,G47.
These states havo had twenty-nine
representatives In the lower house dur
ing the past decade, a representation
based upon the total white and negro
population. Deducting tho population
which has been disfranchised and us
ing the ratio which governed the last
apportionment these states would bo
entitled to only fifteen representatives
Men who are most familiar with
political conditions In t'he South, and
who fully understand the influence of
the race problem in foicing an uuwiso
nnd illogical party alignment In every
national contest, do not believe that
the South would have much to lose
from a reduction of Its representation
In congress. In fact, many believe
that It would ultimately work out the
elimination of the race question in
southern politics, ushering in nn era
of political sanity nnd unprecedented
industrial prosperity for that section.
What the South would lose In congres
sional representation would bo incon
sequential compared to Us vast gain
politically and industrially through the
gradual elimination of tho negro prob
lem from politics.
Having taken its punishment at tho
hands of the federal congress the
South would then bo In a position to
maintain absolute and permanent con
trol of its local governments, city,
county and state, and the fear of "ne
gro domination" would gradually dis
appear. In course of time we would
witness the Inspiring spectacle of an
honest and progressive alignment of
southern states on the issues presented
In a national contest. The time would
come when the South would no longer
vote directly against its honest convic
tions and Its Industrial welfare
through fear of "negro supremacy."
Tho spectacle of an entire section of
the Union voting solidly every four
yeais for one particular party, no mut
ter what issues may be at stake, is a
menace to the nation. The North has
divided from time to time on national
Issues. Theie Is scarcely a state In tho
North that has not at some time cast
a majority In favor of the Democratic
The South can no longer stand like a
stone wull against progress. The time
must1 come when the states must stand
fearlessly nnd Independently for their
own material Interests and for the in
dustrial welfare of their people. That
time will come when the feur of negro
domination is eradicated.
Dr. Parkhurst also begins to display
a desiro to again tuko a place on the
"rush line" in the crusade against vice
In New York,
Concentrated Food Fad.
CONCENTRATED food exports
have again secured a hearing
fiom high government ofll
cials and It is announced that
tho U. S, regulars at one of tho
military stations will for tho next few
weeks bo made tho victims of expeil
ments to dotermlno whether or not tho
average man In the Held who has been
accustomed to enjoy tho flavor of vic
tuals consumed upon nature's plan of
mastication can bo kept allvo by con
centrated foods prepared In capsules
after tho manner of nauseating drugs
taken as medicine. If the soldier can
bo persuaded to exist upon pellets, the
visionary experts contend, a vast
amount of trouble 'can be done away
with In handling supplies of tho com
missary department. Tho limit of con
centration only will decide whether the
trooper who now depends to a certain
extent upon tho supply train for food
bliall uot'be ablo to start out with a
year's rations packed neatly In his
knapsack, taking up no more space
than an extra change of underclothing.
Concentruted foods In cusc of Illness
where tequlred to net as temporary

but It la did cult to understand how
even the enthusiastic experts in boiled
provendtr can have the assurance to
attempt to Introduce Into tho military
service a system of diet so directly al
vnrlniico with tho most simple hy
gelan rulea. Medlc.it mithorltles havo
for yearn been uuniilmous In the as
sertion that mastication of food In tho
mouth Is tho greatest nld to digestion,
nnd that without this old the Rtomach
of tho most healthy man will soon re
fuse to do Its wotk. Tho experiment
of pill food was tried upon the Ocrmnn
nrmy several years ugo and some of
the men bprnme Insane nnd committed

Dt'RXIUM'S "Leading in Livv" gives an '"m""
u Ins account of the trial of a case wherein
a doctor sued to recover his fee. The case was
tried in (Jeorcia many jcars ago. Hobert
Toombs appeared for the plaintiff nnd Alexander
II. Stephen for the defend int. When the cvi
ilonce had closed Mr. Stephens told lib client,
the defendant, that the plaintiff had made out
his case, and, ns there was no ouet, It was use
less to proceed further, ami the beat thine the
defendant could do was to piy the doctor's
claim. The defendant, who was named Peter
Dennett, scorned this advice and Indignantly re
plied that he hid hired Mr. Stephens to speak
for lilm, and he must say something. Mr. Ste
phens answered that there was nothing to say;
that if IVtcr thought ho could say nnj thing he
might addrc.-d the jury himself, whereupon Peter
delivered himself as follows: "Gentlemen of the
jury, jou and me is plain fanners, and if we
don't stick together these 'cie lawyers and doc
tors will jis skin and bury us. This 'cro doctor
was a new doctor, and I went fur him to come
and doctor my wife's sore leg. Ho come and
he put some salve truck to it and some rags,
but necr done it a bit cr good. I don't believe
he's no doetor nohow. There is doctors as is
doctors, but this 'ere mm don't yearn his money,
and if jou send fur him as Miss Sal Atkins did
fur a nigger boy as was wuth $1,000, he jjs
Kills him and wants pay for it!"
"I don't," thundered the doctor.
"Did -ir cuic that nigger?" asked Peter. The
doctor was silent, and Peter proceeded:
"As I was iajin', glntilmin, we farmer, when
we sells our cotton, lias got ter glv tally for
tho money was asks, and doctois ain't none to
good to he put to the same rule. And I don't
believe this 'ere mm is no doctor nohow."
"Look at my diploma, if jou think I'm no
doctor," again interposed the plaintiff.

Invited him lo a tut in ids sleigh. Alter lio

exports by $90,003,309. The jear 1(100 will for

$134,157,22i3, which was made In March, 1900.
Agriculture, mining and manufactures have
Jointly contributed to this enormous Increase in
our export business. The details of the tenth
month of Hie jear, October, have not jet been
completed, but thoso for the nine months ending
with September show that agricultural exports
are $50,000,000 greater in 1000 than In 1890;
manufactures, $i0,0u0,000 greater; products of
the mine $7,000,000 in excess of tlio correspond

of the forest $5,000,000 greater than in tlio nine
montlis of 1809. It is especially In raw cotton
nnd manufactured iron and steel, however, that
the greatest growth Is shown. Exports of cot
ton iu tho single month of October amounted
to over 90,O0O,O00, r.galnst $23,000,000 In Octo

THE GOLD OF AUTUMN".
The gold of autmn's glory
From summer's wealth is born
How bleak would be the twilight giay,
Remembering not the morn!
And as sweet May was joyous,
And jocund June was fair,
November's tints the richer glow
That in their colors share!
Life's mellowest songs of evening
Come from youth's splendid prime
How harsh must that soul's vespers be
That loved not in love's timet
And as that love was tender
And strong and tiuc and high,
So is the singer's voice most sweet
That sings such love gone by!
