Eren the mnllet heads wJH be able to
the foo!Shns cf ft before that
time. By the time that a few trmn-
and men, with constitutions ruined
ar.d live Matted hav ba scattered
over the country, an ocular demon-
itnttioa will b given that will be
convincing. A mullet head may not
Able to think, but he can fide. This
officer, who seemed to be in favor of
holding the Philippines, went on to
"It will be necessary to keep at
least 100,000 men on the Islands, We
now hare 65.000 and it Is acknowl
edged that the garrisoning of the
towns Is exceedingly weak and not
; half of the communities have any pro
i tectlon at all from our government,
j It will require more than 100,000 well
drilled men to hold the Philippines
I and it will be necessary to enlist many
; native regiments to asist our troops.
; The negro regiments now in the Phil-
ippincs are better at fighting the na
i ties than white regiments. If I had
ray way, I would enlist at least two
I dozen negro regiments to take the
! places of men now about to return
I from the Islands. The negro is. In
I many Instances, a better soldier than.
to follow their officers and the Ideal
.aU, v. i nri.
nary negro. Tell a negro soldier to
swim across a river and storm a fort
and he proceeds to do so If his officers
lead the way. The business of an offi-
cer Is to lead and we want no officers
who are not willing to do so."
The soldier as described by this
regular army officer Is the Ideal of the
old standing armies, but it has been
knocked Into smithereens by the
Boers. The British regulars who had
been trained and drilled in that man
ner were found to be no match for the
men who did some thinking for them
selves. It took ten British regulars to
whip one of them and when they suc
ceeded in doing it, the regulars found
themselves unfit for further duty.
Thir officer In expressing himself
further on the subject said:
"I do not believe it will be difficult
to Induce men to enliet for the con
tinual ce of the Philippine war, even
though all the disadvantages of the
services are made widely known. It
will be necessary, however, to ease
up in the physical examinations.
Plenty of men are presenting them
selves, but the examinations have
been too rigid. Let congress enact
toe law reorganizing the army and
lt orders be sent out from Washing
ton to rush up enlistments. There will
be a rush that will soon fill up the
list to any desired number."
That there are a few million mullet
heads in the United States who have
no more sense than to enlist and gc
to the Philippines, where if they are
not killed, they wili have their con
stitutions undermined, the last elec
tion sufficiently proves. If they went

will mean more bonds, mere national,

A Public Function
In the nature of things the construc
tion and maintenance of irrigation
works are public functions like the
building of lighthouses or public high
ways, and the former can as ill be
made objects of commercial enterprise
as the latter. There is water sufficient
for the irrigation of from 75,000.000 to
100,000,000 acres depending upon the
methods of eonserv&t'on naploye''..
Probably 10,000,000 people could find
homes on farms and be self support
ing If the water supply should be prop
erly regulated. A better investment
was never made by a government since

Common Sense
At the state meeting of the teachers
held in Lincoln last week Chancellor
Andrews made an address distin
guished for good, hard, common sense.
Among other things he said:
"Unless all signs fail, we are on tne
threshold of a momentous new devel
opment in the matter. The time seems
near at hand when our public scnoois
will be able to teach the elements of
morality in a positive way. For all
practical purposes morality car. be
taught without dipping Into religion
and all sects are becoming aware 01
"To teach ordinary morality you
need not refer to or even know any of
morality's profound implications. Pub
lic sentiment would sanction it should
we at once systematically begin teach
ing such virtues as cleanliness in
speech and thought, thrift, temper
ance, fortitude, perserverance, verac
ity, laws cf property, public spirit,
love of country, regard for parents, fo.'
the aged, for the feeble, the unfor
tunate and for brutes and a great var
iety of kindred virtues. No parents
exist who do not wish their children
schooled in these highly important du
ties. All denominations will agree
to this kind of teaching, none fearing
that it will collide with dogma."
Future Campaign Funds
Ships can now be built in our ship
yards cheaper than in Europe. Ev
erything entering into the construc
tion of ships is now cheaper here.
During tbe past year enormous quanti
ties of steel rails, . plates and beams
have been shipped from this country
into England as well as into other for
eign nations, and during the past six
months we have sold iron ore, pis
iron, steel billets, manufactured steel
and even coal in England in defiance
of the competition that we have been
wont to dread in the past. This is not
all. During the past year our capital
ists have been successful bidders for
twenty-five million dollars of British
consols. Therefore, every argument

Hanna has campaign debts to set

nished the corruption funds to carry

to the corruption of the party is a

One of McKinley 's Pets and His Especial
Appointee hsvs Been Caught In Most
Disgraceful Work.
Serious charges have been filed at
the war department against Lieut.
Col. H. O. S. Heistand of the adjutant
general's office, who Is now serving In
China on the staff of General Chaffee.
Colonel Heistand, who was on Presi
dent McKinley 's staff while governor
of Ohio, was appointed major and as
sistant adjutant general by Mr. Mc
Kinley shortly after he assumed the
presidential office, Colonel Heistand
being at that time a captain in the
11th United States Infantry. About a
year ago he was appointed military at
tache to Paris and detailed afterward
for service in China.
Major Erastus L. Hawkes, who held
that rank in the 10th United States
volunteers during the Spanish war,
files the charges. . He alleges that on
or about May 1, 1898, Colonel Heistand
represented to him and others:
"That his superior officer, Adjutant
General Henry C. Corbin, and also As
sistant Secretary of War George D.
Meiklejohn, Former Assistant Secre
tary of the Navy Allen, now governor
of Porto Rico; and Former Assistant
Attorney General James L. Boyd, now
United States district judge for North
Carolina, were ready and willing, and
had agreed to enter a combination for
the purpose of organizing a company
to manufacture cordage at Manila,
Philippine islands, and to control the
output of hemp from the Philippine
islands, stating that the said islands
would be under military rule for at
least ten years, and that by reason of
their high official position those
named could procure for the company
certain business advantages, including
among others an arrangement of the
tariff to meet its necessities, and fur
ther after much money and several
months of time had been spent on my
part, Lieutenant Colonel H. O. S. Hei
stand represented that Assistant Sec
retary Allen and Adjutant General
Corbin had withdrawn all connection
with the proposed company."
Isn't it awful to think that our owa
dear and spotless Meiklejohn, whom
the U. P. railroad and Mark Hanna
are going to make a senator from Ne
braska, should be mixed up in a job
like that? The whole story is mon
strous. Could any one be made to be
lieve that United States officers en
dowed with unlimited power over 10,-
000,000 of people, 10,000 miles from
home or the possibility of inspection,
where every newspaper correspondent
is under the control of a military cen
sor, would dare to form such a com
bination to make money as that? No
sir! The Independent repudiates the
whole story. Military officers, 10,000
miles from home, free from public
criticism, endowed with unlimited
power, would never think of forming
companies to make money out of the
Malays whom they so dearly love.
Never! The thing Is impossible.
Final Crop Report

522,229,505 bushels, the area actually
harvested being 42,495,385 acres, and
the average yield per acre 12.29 bush

that of spring wheat at 172,204,096
bushels, the area actually harvested
being 26,235,897 acres in the former
case and 16,259,488 acres in the latter.
The winter wheat acreage totally
abandoned in Ohio, Michigan, Indiana
and Illinois is finally placed at 3,522,
787 acres and the spring wheat acre
age totally abandoned in North Da
kota and South Dakota at 1,793,467
acres. The extraordinary rapid rate
at which the winter wheat acreage of
Nebraska is gaining upon the spring
wheat acreage of that state has neces
sitated a special investigation of the
relative extent to which the two var
ieties were grown during the last year.
The result of the investigation is that,
while no change is called for in the
total wheat figures of the state 590,575
acres have been added to the winter
wheat column at the expense of the
spring variety.'
The newly seeded area of winter
wheat is estimated at 30,282.564 acres.
While this acreage is slightly greater
than that sown in the fall of 1899, as
estimated at the time, it is 600,654
acres less than the area that was act
ually sown, the discrepancy being due
to that remarkably rapid development
of winter wheat growing in Nebraska
with which, as above stated, the de
partment's reports had failed to keep
A comparison of the newly seeded
acreage with that of the fall of 1899
shows that of the eleven states and
territories that sowed 1.000,000 acres
or upward with winter wheat one year
ago, Pennsylvania, Missouri, Kansas,
California and Oklahoma report an in

When I read many of the outpour

cially in my own country, and see how
they utterly misconceive tbe nature of
empire, I always think of the monkey
who after seeing its master shave
stole his razor and cut its throat. But
it grieves me to see our American
kinsfolk falling a prey to the same de
lusion which is making such havoc
wilb the peace and prosperity of Brit

ject lesson in South Africa, where we
have sacrificed to the phantom cf
paramountcy 20,000 human lives and
$500,000,000. And with what result?

by experience ttha it is a valuable med
icine. Not only is it a valuable medicine but
it is applicable to the climatic- ailments
of winter and summer. Extremes of
heat and cold in the United States make
it a land of catarrh.'
Nearly everybody has catarrh. This
is more especially true among the mid
dle and lower classes. Exposure to the
climate, hard work, and unventilated
sleeping rooms are the principal causes.
Charitable institutions have found, by
bitter experience, that catarrhal dis
eases are not only the most numerous
of all other diseases put together, bul
they are the hardest to cure.
Peruna is a specific for this class of
diseases. No other remedy can take Its
place. Thousands of cases of chronio
catarrh are cured by the use of simply
a bottle. People who have spent large
sums to be cured of catarrh, have turned
to Peruna as a last resort, and been
cured by the use of a single bottle.
It is a sure cure for coughs, colds, la
grippe and catarrh in its many phases.
Whether tbe catarrh, is located in the
head, throat, lungs, stomach, kidneys or
pelvic organs, Peruna is a prompt and
never-failing cure.
Mrs. Sarah Jones, Pleasant Plain, la.,
writes; "I wish to acknowledge my ap
preciation of the benefits received from
Peruna and Manalin in the treatment of
what was pronounced systemic catarrh.
1 took Peruna for a while and discon
tinued the use of it as I felt so much
better. The latter part of the winter
and early spring there was bo much
sickness here, an epidemic of colds and
pneumonia prevailed. I had an attack
of cold in catarrhal form, suffering with
facial neuralgia and headache, but con
tinued taking Peruna and Manalin and
was soon restored without being pros
trated with weakness."
