Senator Vest laid over has Cuban

Grandma Spain may as well get off the

gets after anything he don't rest until
he accomplishes his task.
A state meeting of Nebraska sher
iffs begins in Lincoln this morning. A
very large attendance is expected and
a systeicized method of attending to
the duties of these important officers
will be discussed. Some needed leg

introduced in congress has been a

of the people. He introduced one yes

pers and employes upon railroads by
compelling commom carriers to con

pliances. The Chicago Inter Ocean thus
speaks of Nebraska: "Two years ago
Nebraska was suffering from a long
drouth and the legislature appropri
ated $150,000 for the relief of farmers,
and there were prophets who foretold
of the ruin of Nebraska. This year
she reports her crop of corn alone at
3 -.0,0. 0.1 00 bushels. Nebraska is liatm
to dUdste' s. bui it is :i great state."
THE Dallas News accounts for it.
It eays the hen tyat laid the egg that
was thrown at Secretary Carlisle at
Covington, carried Kentucky for sound
money at the late election. This is
going quite aways back for the final
cause, but as it is complimentary to a
very faithful and unostentatious friend
of man, it will pass. That Kentucky'

honors due her should be paid by a

Chairman II ANNA, who has earned
the hearty ill will of the popocrats,
seems to rather like it and has taken
charge of the national republican
committee with a vim that bodes no
rest for his political opponents. The
committee has taken permanent quar
ters in Washington as if entering
upon another campaign, and we are
promised the banner oi republican
ism with sound money and protection
as its motto will not be allowed to trail
in the dust. The educational campaign
begun feO auspiciously last June will
The senators who take a humane
view of the Cuban war for liberty,
have had their day in court, and it
looks as though even if congress
passed the "sympathy resolution"
unanimously, ii wou'd amount to
nothing; as it is evident, the matter
of declaring Cuba independent, is
purely an executive prerogative
with which congress has no more to
do than an average town council.
While our sympathies are with the
insurgents, yet we can not commend
the .unstAtesmanship like course of
the national senate. It looks too
much like boys' play.
Anthracite coal has been on the
free list for years, and since it is all
owned in this country by a trust or
combine, the tariff could be of no pos
sible help to the public generally. ID
deed, it would be nothing short of an
outrage to have a tariff at this time
placed upon anthracite coal. If we
could get this articlo from Canada or
"Moxico,--which we are now being
robbed of $10 per ton to pay for, at a
less price, we ought to be allowed to
do it. We want protection to Ameri
can industries, but not to soulless
trusts which have fattened on public
necessities. Another trust could be
crippled that of sugar if sugar were
placed on the fiee list and a fair
bounty paid to the producers in this
There was nothing inherently im
probable in the report of the murder
of Maceo by the Spaniards, even be
fore the intelligence came which
seems to confirm the story, says the
Globe-Democrat, This barbarity is in
line with other Spanish crimes in the
present and preceding uprisings in
Cuba. Twenty-three years ago the
world was horrified at the news of the
slaying of General Canby and one or
two companions by the Modocs while
on a peace commission to these sav
ages, but the latest reports show that
Maceo's assassination was attended
with features of infamy which were
absent in the case of the American
general's murder. The entire war in
Cuba has been characterized on the
part of the Spanish by crimes which
recall the acts of Ghenghis Khan.
This latest outrage shocks civilization
and will take away from Spain the
small amount of sympathy which
Europe had for her in her struggle
and will hasten Cuban recognition in
the United States. The Modoc mur
derers were hanged, and it is a pity
that justice cannot be wreaked on
Weyler and his companion barbarians
who concocted or executed thia crime.
COMES out as a protectionist.
U .ited St ites Senator McEnery of
Louisiana has startled his democratic
breth:en of the old school by coining
out boldly as a protectionist. He
will work with the republicans on
that issue and his vote in the senate
may be all that is needed to secure
proper legislation. Here is what he
I realize, as many others now, that
instead of running along with a deficit
in the revenues, we should always
have a surplus. There should always
be a contingent fund, and the great
government of the United States,
with its wealth and progress, should
not be confronted with a deficit in its
public revenues, and should never
offer an excuse of inability to pay
promptly all obligations. If a hit,h
tarfff will give the required or more
thau the required amount of revenue
I will favor a bill of that kind. 1 be
lieve a United States senator should
be for or against a measure on the
high ground of its expediency or its
benefit to the country. We realize in
Louisiana the necessity for legislation
that will build up and no- destroy the
industries by which we live. Ther
is no use disguising the fact. Lo'iie

its industries, and I will support a
measure that will give Louisiana he
The "ego" element of Grover Cleve

A Long List From Kubber Hands to Sur
gical Supplies An Interesting Descrip
tion of How Bulbs For Syringes and
Atomizers Are Made.
Rubber is one of the most Btaple and
useful articles id modern use. There are
but few uses to which the wonderful
product cannot be put. It can be made
as pliable as putty or as hard a9 wood,
and is just as adapted for use as a hair
pin as for a golf ball or a waterproof
jacket. Few people, however, are as fa
miliar with the process of manufacture
as with the product itself.
The larger part of our rubber goods
comes from Brazil, which is the great
est rubber producing country in the
world. Here, of course, rubber workers
handle their elastic material with an
ease and celerity which is a revelation
to the man who has wasted the greater
part of a forenoon trying to mend a hole
in his punctured tire. Although the
larger part of rubber manufacturing is
done by machinery there is still consid
erable doue by hand. In making np
goods for druggists, stationers and sur
gical supplies the best grades of Para
rubber, the best in the world, are gen
erally used. -
The ordinary commercial rubber ia
gray, but its coloring is an easy matter.
This is done by mechanically mixing
with the rubber, after it is was-hed and
dried, different kinds of pigments ox
ide of zino for white, lampblack for
black, golden sulphuret of antimony for
yellow and vermilion for red. The rub
ber mixed with the pigment is run
through heavy Bteam heated rollers into
thin sheets.
The making of rubber bands i.s a sim
ple process. Thin sheets of pure gum
are wrapped around a form until it is
shaped into a flat tnle cf the required
thickness. This tube is then vulcanized,
when it is shipped off the form and run
through a machine, which cuts it cress
wise into Btrips.
Rubber erasers contain finely pow
dered pumice stone or t niery dust. Tl:
abrasive niutenals are mixed with ti:o
rubber mechanically, which is then
molded into shape and vulcanized un
der steam heat.
One of the most interesting processes
in the manufacture cf rubber goods ia
that of lulbs. Long bulbs, such as pyr
inges and atomizers, are made from two
pieces of rubber, but round bulbs, such
as pumps and balls, are made from
three pieces. For cutting the rubber
line or galvanized iron patterns arc
used. Considerable care is necessary
in this, as the strength of the seam de
pends upon the smooth fitting of the
edges. The three parts for hollow bi lls
may, however, be cut with a die. It ..;e
bulb has a neck, small pegs cf iron are
first prepared by being cemented and
wound with strips of rubber as a tin
After the rubber is cut into the proper
parts it is then brushed with cement the
whole length of the skived edges and
thoroughly heated. The bulbmaker then
takes the softened rubber, and tak
ing a prepareel peg places the nick
on one piece on ere side of the rubber
core and another i:i ek piece on the op
posite side, then presses them firmly to
gether, and, rolling the whole tube
shaped piece between thumb and fore
finger, has finished the neck of the bulb.
The next process is that of knitting the
edges which form the seam. This is
done by holding the finished neck to
ward the operator in his left hand.
while with the thumb and forefinger of
the light lie pinches the (.dges firmly
together for nearly the whole distance
around. Into the side apertnre, which
is left open, is poured a little water or
liquid ammonia. The opening is then
made still smaller, and as a final touch
the maker puts his lips to the orifice and
blows full and hard into the bulb. The
softened rubber under this pressure ex
pands, the flattened shape is lost in a
fuller and more rounded outline, while
the operator, with a quick nip of his
teeth, closes the opening, the imprisoned
air and water holding tho sides apart in
symmetrical corpulency.
The partly made bnlb is now passed
on to the turners, who, armed with scis
sors with curved blades, carefully circle
the seams, cutting away all unevenness,
till the whole exterior is ready for the
The bulbs, as soon as they leave the
trimmers' hands, are laid in shallow
pans filled with chalk. When taken
from here, they are carefully dusted
with talc, bo that the rubber will not
adhere to the inside of tho mold. A
mold worker then takes one-half of the
mold in his left hand and with his right
gently forces a bulb into it, capping it
with the eecoud half. Each bulb, if the
pattern worker is skillful, will fit its
mold; otherwise the finished bulb is apt
to be imperfect.
The molds are run upon small tracks
into the vulcanizer. After they have
been cured a sufficient time the vulcan
izt rs are opened and the cans are run
under an ordinary shower bath, which
quickly cools them. They are then un
keyed, the molds twisted open and the
bulbs taken out. If tho work be well
done, the swelling of the liquid within
its rubber prison has exerted bo intense
a force that every lino and letter within
the mold is reproduced upon the outside
of the bulb, while the sulphur, combin
ing with the heat, accomplishes the
The final process takes place in the
cylind( r room, where in slowly revolv
ing ti.mllii:g barrels the bulb undergoes
a there ugh m curing. When taken out
of the cylii lis, the dirty yellow color
which tie lulls bore on leaving the
mold has riiusppoared, and they are now
smooth, Liu-and finished. The neck
being er.t ill ti e required length, the
bulb is ready ler marketer for the vari
ous fittings which accompany it as ad
juncts to the syrii:ge or atomizer.
