Ihereis no record that i accessible, of
the number of so-called insurgents that
bare been shot down since the beginning
of the war. Be it said to his credit that
during the regime of Marlines Campos
the first year of the war but one Cuban
patriot was murdered in this dastardly
way. and General Campos has said
openly and publicly that he deplored it,
and would regret not having prevented
it, every day of bis life. Under General
Weyler there have been nt least a thou
sand aesisinations of this order during
the Inst year. I refer, of course, only to
the shootings that have taken place in
public and in fortresses after court
martial proceedings have been held.

shot in this way that I know of and can
personally vouch for, and I am- credit
ably informed, and I draw my informa
tion in this instance from Spanish
sources, that ninety-two men have been
shot in SanSeverino during the period
from December 1 to March 20, and
during the same time there took place in
the Cubana prison in Havana sixty-lour
executions. In Santa tiara prison ana
in Cienfuegos, during the sume period,
there have taken pla.e nt h-ast a hund
red and sixty of these executions, to
which the Spanish public is admitted,
doubtless in the case of the mutilated
bodies, "to warm the soul." From "The

The State Fair board should do away
with the Fair Bulletin as an advertising

If tl6 present high taxes do' not bring
prosperity, President McKiuley propose
to increase them; and see if that won't
do the business. But if we send strange
doctors to Washington, we should not
be surprised if tbey prescribed strange

Governor Leedy, unless the advocate
Is far at sea, will prove to be among the
most successful and popular chief mag
istrates In the history of our state. He
has thus far in the main managed the
affairs of his high flfilce with excellent
judgment. In the exercise of discretion
ary powers he has been careful and pro
dent, and in his personal conduce he has
been clean, courteous and reepectful.
And what is quite as much to his credit,
he is carefully studying the needs of the
state, its institutions and its people.
' The industries of America are chiefly
manufacturing and agricultural. The
manufacturer says to I ha farmer, "The
way for you to prosper is to make me
rich first, by shutting out competition,
letting me have a monopoly of manu
facturing and paying me more for the
gomls you buy than you do now. I will
then employ men you are feeding now,
and they will continue to eat. Of course
you can't expect higher prices for the
products of your soil, because your
prices are regulated by foreign demand."
And the farmer votes lor such men as
the manufacturer wants to send to con
gress to enact laws for him to give him
such monopoly. Sledge Hammer. ,
The republicans are. telling us of the
great advantages that are already ac
cruing to the sheep farmer on account
of the anticipated tariff, but tbey have
not yet pointed out any advantage that
has accrued to the corn farmer. Nor do
they tell us that whilu they are benefit
ting one farmer by a tariff on wool that
they tore taxing a thousand other farm
ers for this one fanner's benefit. Really,
it i not the sheep farmer that they are
interested in, but if.they can assist the
manufacturer to ''fleece" the people out
of a few millions through a tax on wool,
it will stimulate their campaign fund in
1900. Madrid News.
J. D. Rockefeller has an annual Income
of $8,600,000. This is. just $23,562 a
day, or not quite $1,000 an hour. On
the basis of eight hours a day, he makes
use mv a minute. According to toe
United States census report the average
wages of the workingman of the coun
try is $22 a month or 84 2-3 cents per
day. The average cost of living for a
laboring man is a little over half of this;
leaving a net average earning of 40 to
42 cents per day. Divide $23,562.00
