For governor of Pennsylvania, on the
Issue of an open Hold nml fair play,
JOHN P. ELKIN, of Indiana,
subjpet to the will ot the Republican
First Minister to Cuba.
, dent has selectc
Is made at
uit the presl-
selected the man
whom he will npoolnt flist
minister Mo Culm. The selection falls
on Herbert O. Squlers, or New York.
Sir. Saulers was born in Canada of
'American parents. He entered the
AVcst Point academy from New York,
became an olflcer and served with the
Seventh cavalry. lie resigned from the
army, however, and In 1S34 enteied tho
diplomatic service as second secretary
of tho United States embassy In Ber
lin, and held that olllee until May, LStiT.
lie was out of the service until Janu
ary, ISPS, when President MeKlnley ap
pointed him secretary of legation at
Fcldn, a post he now holds, although
now in this country on leave of ab
sence In the siege of the Pckln legations by
Chinese troops and Boxers Mr. Htiulers,
on account of his military experience,
was appointed chief of staff to Sir
Claude McDonald, tho British minister,
who had also been an army olllcer and
was commander-in-chief of the forces
defending the legations. Ills gallantry
and efficiency in that trying position
won encomiums from all the legatlon
crs. He was repeatedly and highly com
mended in ofllcial repoits.
Mr. Snuieis, in addition to having a
thorough diplomatic training, including
a perfect knowledge of the Spanish
language, has ample pilvate means to
sustain the expenses of the Havana
mission, which are likely far to exceed
the $10,000 salary asked for by the piesi
dent. "Wyoming's vote of 3 to 1 for Elkln is
a fair reflection of party sentiment. If
the opponents of Elkln doubt this, let
them accept Elkln's offer to take a
poll at forthcoming primaries."
The Silk Industry.
A CENSUS bu.lle.tin Just issued o'n
the silk industry in the United
, States exhibits proof of re
markable growth. For many
years France had almost a monopoly of
the manufacture of line silks. The an
nual value of France's silk production
is estimated at $122,000,000. In 1SS9 the
United States produced silk to the value
of J107,250,2jS and doubtless by this
time, so rapid is the growth of the
domestic silk Industry, Is in the lead,
The leading states for silk manufac
ture are New Jersey, Pennsylvania,
New York, Connecticut and Massachu
setts. The greatest growth is noted in
Pennsylvania, which from a position of
comparative insignificance In 1SS0 has
advanced to the second place. There
nre 121 establishments In Pennsylvania,
giving employment to 21.02S wage earn
ers. New Jersey has ISO establishments
giving employment to 24,157 wage earn
ers. New York gives employment, to
7,861 wage earners, Connecticut to E.ull
and Massachusetts to 3,110.
There was an Increase of no per cent,
in the capital employed In silk manu
facture last year as compared with 1SS0,
The increase In the value of products
wis 22 per cent,, and In cost of ma
terials used 22 per cent. Tho value of
the gross products of this industry in
Pennsylvania, aggregated $31,072,920 In
1000. It is stated in the report that tho
growth of this Industry In the United
.States under tho protective tariff lias
seriously affected the industry In Ger
many and Bomo other countries,
At the same time, silk Is cheaper to
;day than ever before. No longer Is Its
!uso .confined to tho rich, Tho poorest
juse it Increasingly und tho $21,000,000 in
".wages which .this Industry disburses
annually in this country constitutes a
'.welcome addition to the Incomes of
thousands of wago-eurnlng families.

Sending Money by flail.
WE HAVE borclofi

promised before congress
and shown how Us adoption would
gieatly facilitate mall order business
by enabling money in small sums to be
sent cheaply and safely through the
Before a committee of United States
treasury and postal officials last week
the Inventor of this system, C. AV. Post
of Detroit, presented an interesting
argument for its adoption. The incon
veniences which newspaper publishers
and merchants experience In convert
ing postage stamps nnd small checks
into money weie pointed out by Mr.
Post, and he explained that under the
proposed post check system all the
small bills circulated by the govern
ment may be used In making remit
tances at a much less cost and with
much less trouble than is involved in
securing money orders. Mr. Post staled
that from statistics secured by wilting
to many of the large catalogue bouses,
publishers nnd manufactuiers who do a
large mall order business, lie has been
able to compute the amount of money
transmitted tlnough the malls In small
sums and finds that fully $2,000,000,000
pass tlnough tho mails annually under
I lie present inconvenient method. If the
post cheek system were in use remit
tances would be largely increased. It
was urged that the government would
receive a gi eater levenue from the
stamps cancelled on post checks than it
now derives from money orders, and
that the new system would be much
more convenient for all persons who re
mit and receive money in small sums
'tlnough the mails. The former prob
ably and the latter certainly is true.
"At present," as Mr. Post pointed out,
"when a farmer or farmer's wife de
sires some small article from the store
or to subscribe for the local paper or to
transact any item of business requiring
the expenditure of a small sum of
money, he or she is estopped until such
time as a journey can be made either
to personally perform the duty or to
secuie a money order to safely convey
tho money. The conditions are parallel
with the period antedating the trolley
car, telephone and rural free delivery
of mall, when the transaction of any
business away from home meant travel,
expense, time and frequently hardship.
The modern rule of practice is to tele
phone and not to travel; to send and
receive and not personally go and come.
Public servants are doing the errands
of the people, and doing them more per.
fectly and economically than was done
In the old way. The perfection of the
general service rendered by the posl
uillco department Is a matter of na
tional pi hie. There are, however, two
features of the postal service that never
have been entirely satisfactory to the
oflleials nor to the people, and which
never can bo made satisfactory until
the assistance of the. United States
treasury department Is Invoked, I icfer
to the inability to prevent robbery ot
letters containing money and stamps,
and to the failure to supply the public
with convenient and safe money to send
through the malls. No form of money
older that requites a journey op an
elfort to obtain will ever incut the de
mand of the people."
Tho bills now pending provide for
printing the one, two and live-dollar
notes, and suitable denominations of
fractional currency, with blank spaces
In order that the holder may tit once

paid to the government by afllxlim and

largo bills nnd a one-cent hlaiup on the

estimated, pay loi' reprinting the hills

This looks like a remedy worse than the

A murderer executed by hanging in
New Jersey last week hud his head

from the execution chamber us though
thpy had been driven out In fear of
their lives. It served them right for
wanting to see murder by law.
