Senator Benjamin R. Tillman, like
Collins ram. Is a man of his own head.
A great character is Benjamin. Honest
as the day Is long, plain as an old shoe,
with a head full of common cease
vrhlch, after all, is the best sort of
sense with a lion's heart in his breast,
with perfect confidence In and deep
sympathy with the masses, he is the
Inevitable foe of jobbery and hates a
sham as he hates his satanic majesty.
A most, useful public servant is Benja
min, and a most valuable instrument
for prodding and killing unsavory
schemes is his famous pitchfork. Late
ly Tillman has brought down on his
defiant head the hatred of jobbers of
every degree by exposing the huge
armor plate frauds. He has a blunt,
almost brutal, way of stating the
truth, and he made it redhot for the
armor plate agents in the galleries and
the armor plated senators on the floor.
What Tillman lacks in grace he makes
up in emphasis. He could not write so
good a handbook on rhetoric as Senator
Henry Cabot Lodge, but no man of
this generation can send a fact
straighter to the mark than this great
South Carolina tribune of the people.
He can't be wheedled, bullied or coax
ed from doing the right for right's
sake. He Is a man of vast mental
force of the order of dynamite. He
loves the plain people, God be praised.
and the plain people love him.

McKltaley l'p Against It.
The probabilities are that the Mc- J
Ilanna administration is up against it j
at last in the Boer-English affair. It is j
difficult to see how they can any longer j
refuse to show their band. It is well '
known that the Boer commissioners j
are not only in the country, but in the i
capital of the nation. It is also well j
known that nine-tenths of the Ameri-
can people, without reference to polit
ical affiliations, sympathize with the
Boers, and. what's more, they want
that sympathy officially and emphat
There is also a deep seated suspicion
that the administration, sympathizes
j witu England in its murder of the two
heroic little South African republics.
If this suspicion grows into positive
knowledge, William McKinley will
stand no more chance of being re-elected
president than of being translated
i jn a chariot of fire after the manaa of
the prophet Elijah.
It is hinted that the powers that be
have conveyed a hint to the Boer com-
; missioners that they may be seen, but
' j..,, not hp hoard In this Innd of the
At one time the celebrated musician
Logier was organist of the parish
church of WL, where his family resided.
This church was at a considerable dis
tance from any dwelling house and was
approached only through an extensive
burial ground. To add to its loneliness,
it stood near the seashore. It was also
reported to be haunted by the ghost of a
suicide who was buried without the fence
of the graveyard and who nightly fre
quented the church to sue for Christian
buriaL It was even whispered by the
peasantry that the bell had been heard
to toll at midnight.
The noble proprietor of the estate, the
marquis of S., had just presented to the
church a fine new organ, and on the com
ing Sabbath it was to be opened and
performed on for the first time.
Logier had been on business to a city
at some distance and did not return
home until late on Saturday night,
when, learning that some of the ar
rangements were still incomplete, he de
termined, in spite of all dissuasion, to
proceed to the church himself. So, tak
ing in his hand a lantern, he set forth.
Such a night! The elements seemed
combined to deter him from his rash en
terprise, but on he went, "boldly whis
tling aloud to keep his courage up." Tis
true, now and then some wild German
legend would cross his mind, but xhe
only whistled the more vehemently. At
last he reached the lone graveyard and,
through the lone graveyard, the church,
whose gray tower was occasionally vis
ible amid the flashes of lightning. Its
usual noisy inhabitants, the rooks, were
ominously still, only uttering at inter
vals a distressing caw, as if suffering
from bronchitis, and the hands of the
old clock pointed to half past 11.
Still, Logier was not afraid. Oh, no!
It was chilly, and any one's teeth would
chatter. Besides, the organ would take
but a few minutes to fix, and then to
think of tomorrow's laurels! So he just
glanced carelessly toward the side of the
graveyard where the suicide was said to
be interred and, opening the door with a
key that he kept himself, entered, closing i
it after him, and ascended to the organ
The interior appearance of the church
was not more cheering than the outside.
The lantern he carried did little more
than "make darkness visible," but the
lightning discovered many a monument
and grim old effigy and many a coat of
arms with its banners pendent.
Amid the pealing of the thunder, the '
howling of the tempest and the, roaring!
of the sea Logier set to work, whistling,
however, this time "Old Hundredth" or
some similar tune, and soon he became so
absorbed in his occupation that he "took
no note of time," though busily engaged
on other notes.
The clock strikes 12. It seems to him
that every toll calls up a spirit. The
storm increases, the drapery and banners
are flapping, and low moaning sounds
seem to issue forth "from the low vaults,
the mansions of the dead." His whistle

Here was a dilemma. There was no

lying near them. The blow of a bat's
wing does very likely feel similar to that
of a spectral hand. -
Logier held his peace and as soon as he
reached home darkly hinted that it might
be as well to say nothing of that last
night's visit to the church, particularly as
the ghost might not like it. New York

Wearing the Purple
Senator Lodge attempted to wear the
Imperial purple for the r-rpose of help
ins out the contractors: "It an old
trick of theirs to raise a loud alarum
whenever they see congress hesitating
over their bills. At the time of the Chi
lian excitement in 1891-92, a well
known naval contractor was asked if
he thought there would be war. "No,"
he said, with a wink, "only just war
enough to get us our contracts." On
Friday the armor people put up Lodge
to threaten Germany, as a means of
persuading the senate not to look too
closely into the cost of the plates. Po
litically, it was a grievous blunder, for
which he was properly rapped over the
knuckles next day by-Senator Spooner,
speaking for the administration.
Strange as it may seem to the war
breathing senator from Massachusetts,
Mr. Spooner and tne President would
actually like to win a few German
American votes in Wisconsin and Illi
nois next November. But Mr. Lodge's
speech was, after all, merely sympto
matic of the tendencies of Expansion.
It is a policy of commercialism, pure
and simple, which we are to go into
only for "what there is in it for us;"
and with the big fish rushing at the
bait of millions in Washington, why

The revelations have come at a criti
cal time. It cannot be denied that
they cast a cloud of suspicion over our
whole insular service. Why should the
looting have been confined to the Ha
vana post-officer People will suspect
rottenness all aiong the line; and their
fears wtil not be allayed by the unac
countable delays of the War Depart
ment in rendering a full accounting.
Details of insular expenditure were re
quested of Secretary Root last Janu
ary, by senate resolutions, but have
not yet been furnished. Why not?
Secrecy will never do in this business;
it will only make the public suspect
the worst. The policy of hush win
simply be fatal. What we must have
is the fullest exposure and the swiftest
punishment. And with them should
come an open, or at least tacit, confes
sion from the President that he has;
inexcusably delayed the extension of
civil-service safeguards in the case of;
appointments to office in our new pos- j

Pink Pills for Pale Pepple
Mrs-William Cotter who lives at No. 42 Windsor Street, Ilartford. Conn.,
says : I was taken with neuralgia several years ago and suffered untold
misery. I tried a great many doctors and several remedies, but I found
only temporary relief. About three years ago I was advised to try Dr. Will
iams' Plnfc Pills for Pale People and 1 did so. I thought that the first box
gave me some relief, and my husband insisted that 1 keep on taking the
pills. I did, and I can truly Bay that the pills are the ouly medicine thut
ever permanently benefited me. 1
I used to have to give up entirely and lie down when the pain came on.
My face would swell up so that my eyes would close. The pills cured all
this, and 1 have had no return of it for the last two years. I keep the puis
constantly on hand, as I believe they are a wonderful household remedy.
"To lr. Williams Pink Pills for Pale People I owe all the comfort I
have enjoyed for the past two years in being free from neuralgia, and 1 aiu
glad to be able to recommend them."
