"I lo not prophesy," said the presi
dent in his latest speech. "Tho pres

are fondest of predicting the downfall
of tho country should try the patriotic
perfomanco of duty as an antidote.
1 1" A few of the numerous candidates
for United States senator could be in
duced to fellow the wise policy of ox
Governor Crounso there would bo
some hope of an cirly election. The
glamour of a complimentary vote
should have been dispelled iong ago.
Poli,AKI's bill establishing rules
and regulations for tho control of con
victs in the stato penitentiary is a
meritorious measure worthy of full
discussion. The extra expense to the
state would be small, and the good
that would result from it is unques
tionrd. Tiik First Nebraska regimen has
shown conspicuous gallantry in the
fighting at Manila and has won com
mendation for i'self from one end of
the country to the other. It wou d
have been an act of proper apprecia
tion of their services had tho leisl.i
ttire passed the relief bill killed in the
house verterdav.
FlEiti: is a pointed remark from the
president's address at Boston: "Many
who were impatient for the contlicl a
year ttgo, apparently heedless of it--larger
results, were the first to cry out
.'gainst the. far-reaching conseq uences
of ii.eir own act." Luckil" f r the
cooiihy thisc! tss, though peraiciously
aciivo. Is not large enough to spoil the
dcrtly a ui?n of considerable artistic
taste with an eye for the beautiful.
His expense account of-$l!8 for car
pets for his two little office rooms and
$3.50 for painting: two radiators, would
seem to indicate that he, like "Sock-
less" Jerry Simpson of Kansas, had
forsaken the straight and narrow path
of populism and shattered one of its
most cherished idols.
Thk time for discussing different
plans for the upbuilding of our mer
chant marine in the foreign trade has
passed by. The true friends of Ameri
can shipping will not divide upon poli
cies, since a plan has already received
the approval of the proper committees
in each branch of congress, a bill to
carry it into effect now hanging upon
the respective calendars of , each
branch of congress. All the enemies
of American shipping revivals will be
aligned against that bill the foreign
iohby will be doing its utmost to pre
vent its passage. In such a condition
no man can claim to be a friend of
American shipping and yet place him
self in the ranks of the opponents of
that bill. The enemy's camp is no
place for the real friends of American
shi pping.
Hon. J. Henxikek Heatox, one of
the best known members of the British
parliament, in a paper published in
the "North American Review," in
1S94, thus expressed his amazement at
the neglect of American shipping in
terests bv the government of tho
United States: "As a consequence of
refusing $5,000,000 a year in subsidies
during thirty years to native ship
owners, or $lo0,0(K),000 the United
Slates had to pay in the same pariod
no less than $3,000,000,000 for freights,
whiie their mercantile marine dwin
dlad into insignificance." But the
passage of the bill now upon theca'ea
dars of each branch of congress, favor
ably reported by the proper commit
tees, will correct the neglect thus
vividly stated, and, as a consequence,
the next thirty years will find the
United .States far on the way toward
reaeetnlne itself. That bill will give
us our proper rank in tho world, and
hi!o providing employment for our
people, strengthen the national de-1
i feufo, if it cccouies a law.

If Great Britain e mid persuade Die
United Stales to repeal its legist ry
law. which excludes foreign ships
fi'.'in registered American ownership,
then it would be possible, in any
emergency, were it deemed accessary,
for British shipowner?, to temporarily
put their ships under our Hag if Km
land went to war v. i h any great or
strong maritime power. As American
property, whether nominally or
actually, they would be freo of confis
cation or capture, and the "mis'ress of
the sea" could concentrate her war
ships upon her enemy's most weak
point, leaving her shipping, under our
flag free of danger.
Situated like this. Great 15. Haiti
would he more ready to go to war,
since she would jeopardise little or
nothing if her merchant ships were
thus e.-.sily taken care of ai d without
the oroteeiioa c f British war.-hips.
The existence of her v.-iol merchant
shipping is at present a serious check
upon any war like tendencies the
i . . i . . , . , .
i.riii.sii may nave, ror tne peace 1
the world, therefore. Die present con
dition of our rcgi-try laws are worth
all that they cost, and much more.
If Senator Banna's shipping bill
should become a law, in a lew yea.s
tL;i: would bo no justification' what
ever for the suggestion of the free
registry of foreign-built ships, because
the operation of the Banna .'bill, as a
law, would redt.'co the cost of building
ships of war and of commerce in Die
United States to p rices lower than
they couid bo built for unywhere eise
in the wo Id. S long as "free ship."
means only Die purchase of Britisn
ships, the reason Britons clamor fo:
the removal of our registry laws is
clear. A few years of cheaper Ameri
can eteel shipbuilding would be a
splendid test of British sincrely. The
Hanna bill if enacted, would apply the
test. .
Tup. tepa'lican supreme court of
Kansas has declared tho iate extra
session of ex-Governor Leedy to have
been legal. This was ta have been ex
pected. Fven a populist governor can
not be robbed of tint prerogative,
since he, apparently, is the sole jadge
of the "extraot dinary "' occasion. How
ever, the decision cf the court does I
not excuse the senseless calling of re
pudiated populist legislators. A new
republican houe of representatives
had been elected by the people, and
most people will incline to the opin
ion Kansas would have remained in
existuuee during the four weeks inter
veiling between the special and regu
lar sessions without the a-si-tance of
these repudiated law-makers.

1. 1 K tit from Sagnr.
A phenomenon, the cause of which
bas not yet been satisfactorily ex
plained, was described at the last
meeting of the British association.
Disks of loaf sugar were mounted on
a lathe and rapidly rotated while a
hammer played lightly against them.
An almost continuous radiation of
light was thus produced from the su
gar. It was shown that the light did
not arise from heating of the sugar,
and it is believed to he caused by
some change taking place in the su
gar crystals. The act of crystallization
is known to be sometimes accompanied
by flashes of light. The practical bear
ing of these experiments is on the
question of the possibility of obtaining
artificial light by methods as vet un
tried. Anyone desiring spring house clean
ing done would do well to call cn

During the Battle of
ill, a rush
The Packers at the Battle of Santiago de
Cuba Were All Heroes Their Heroic
Efforts In Getting Ammunition and
Rations To the Front Saved the Pay.
P.E.Butler, of pack-tinin No. :i,
writing from Santiago do Cuba, on
July 23, says: "We all hud diarrhoea
in more loss violent form, and when
we landed wo had no time to son a
doctor, for it was a e iso of rush and
rush night and day to keep the trt ops
supplied with amunltion and rations,
but thanks to Chamberlain's Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy, we
were able to keep nl work and keep
our health; in fact, I sincerly believe
that at one critical timo this medicine
was tho indirect savior of our army,
for if tho packers had been unable to
work thorn would have been no way
of getting supplies to tho front. There
were no roads that a wagon train
could use. Mv comrade and myself
had the good fortune to lay in a sup
ply of this medicine for our pack-train
before we left Tampa, and 1 know in
four cases it absolutely saved life."

A In in inn in In India.
Within tire past year aluminum has
been introduced in India for the manu
facture of cooking utensils employed
by the native inhabitants. The ex
periment was b :, at Madras, and it
is reported that ti.e native metal-workers
have readily substituted aluminum
for copper and brass, while refusing to
change the traditional shapes which
for generations have been given to
their utensils. They insist on genuine
hand work, and some of them have de
veloped much skill in manipulating
the new metal.
