President McKlnley, of Col. John S.
Mosby as special agent of the General
Land Office, with headquarters in the
west, has brought into prominence one
of -the picturesque figures of the civil
war a man admired by the south for
hU dash and brilliancy and reviled by
northern soldiers because his warfare
was of the guerilla type. A Virginian
by birth, be is now approaching his
69th birthday. While in the University
of Virginia he shot and seriously
wounded a fellow student who bad as
saulted him and, during , his confine
ment for this offense, he studied law so
thoroughly that soon after his release
he waa admitted to the bar. At the
beginning of the war he fought with
Joseph E. Johnston and later with
Stuart, but after two years he organ
ized, in northern Virginia, a force of
irregular cavalry and during the re
mainder of the war be harassed the
Federal troops by cutting o. communi
cations between the armies and des
troying supply trains. His partisan
rangers, when not on a raid, scattered
for safety and remained in conceal
ment, with orders to assemble again at
a given time and place. Various ex
peditions were sent out against him,
but friendly neighbors always kept
him Informed of the enemy's approach.
Mosby held rank In the Confederate
army and reported to Gen. Stuart and,
after his death, to Gen. Lee. His par
tisans received the same pay from the
Confederate government as the regular
At the close of the war he resumed
the practice of law, supported Grant

Speaking of tbe suspension of his
commission house, "Corn King" Phil
lips says: "In a nutshell, it was a
case of too much business. It has
grown so rapidly that our facilities
for taking care of it have not kept
pace with It., Money came easy and
it went easy," says the Chicago Chron
icle. On reading this one naturally recalls
tbe fact that not so very long ago Mr.
Phillips made a speech In Minneapolis
In which be proposed a case of a great
deal more business so much more as
to make tbe Phillips commission busi
ness look like a molehill beside a
mountain In the comparison.
Tbe business which he proposed
was nothing less than that of keeping
corn forever cornered, with 50 cents
per bushel as the minimum price. In
order to work this business success
fully he proposed to establish a bank
with a capital of $50,000,000 or such a
matter and to establish mammoth
elevators' also to atore the corn of
fered by farmers aa security for loans
from the big banks on tbe basis of 60
cents a bushel, with a margin of 10
cents off.
Tbe magnitude of the business had
no terrors for the "corn king" when
he made that speech. In his mind he
had no trouble in conducting a bank
with $50,000,000 or more capital and an
elevator buslneaa running up to hun
dreds of millions of bushels. In bis
mind, too, It waa a perfectly simple
matter to keep the price of corn up to
50 cents a bushel or above.
What doe he think of It now? He
admits that bis respectable but com
paratively tHfllng commission business
has run away from blm. He has not
been able to keep up with It or keep
track of It. Doea he still think he
could keep up with his rousing per
petual corner business f "Money came
easy and It went easy" In hla little
business; how does be think might
be with that tremendously big busi
ness? Might not the easy-comlrg
money go too easily?

Simon B. Needbam, who claims to

born to be a priest and a king before
the Lord of Israel, is holding the ne
groes and superstitious whites under
a spell by his street corner talks In
Macon, Mo. He Is a remarkable per
sonage. He says that his mother was
born at Richmond, Va in the year
1800. Her maiden name was Julia
Judah, the daughter of Emanuel
Judah. She was left an orphan at an
early age, kidnaped by slave dealers
and sold Into bondage. This enslaved
Jewish woman then became the moth

His mission Neednam announces to be
to deliver the natives and to establish
a universal brotherhood of man and
fatherhood of God, and says the thing
Is to be achieved in his day and gen
eration. While not prepossessing in appear
ance, the "prophet" talks with some
fluency and much animation. He an
nounced that he could repeat any
verse in the Bible correctly offhand,
and his frequent use of the scriptures
to prove his peculiar teachings im
pressed his hearers. He says he Is in
the seventy-fourth year of his second
earth life and has lived a number of
years In Kansas City, Mo., where he
opened a "universal mission" in 1899.
Sympathy and "Btuin4.
President Kruger is not aware of
the fact that sympathy must not be
allowed to spoil a good trade. He has
heard about American sympathy for
the Boers. Evidently be does not take
much stock in It. The message which
he has sent by the pastor of a Boer
church in Pretoria, who is now in this
country asking aid for the women and
children in foreign prison camps is:
"Tell the American people they are
helping to murder us by sending mules
and horses to the British generals."
Americans have sold several million
dollars' worth of these animals to
flrjttsh purchasing agents, and to . a
subJdV, extent have contributed to the
these aniTi. of the Boers. Without

sympathize with the Boers, but tis
did not let their sympathies Interfere
with the sale of their live stock, nor
are they supposed to know for whom
they are purchased. For all that they
are aware they may be for the Boers.
President Kruger's message was not
a tactful one. He would make a poor
solicitor for contributions. But tbe
need of the women and children In the
prison camps of the Transvaal is great,
and President Kruger's ungracious re
marks should not deter Americans
from giving for the relief of these suf
ferers. Chicago Tribune.

PITTSBURO, Ta., Aug. 8. In the
big steel strike honors are even in
this section tonight. The Amalga
mated association succeeded in closing
down the big steel plant at Newcas
tle and the manufacturers partially
broke tbe strike at tbe Clark mill in
thia city. Neither side is exulting,
nor is there any expression of dis
couragement. Up to this hour not the slightest
trouble has occurred at any point in
this Immediate territory and the Amal
gamated men are corcspondingly hap
py, because this condition would seem
to be tbe carrying out of tbe associa
tion's departure In the handling of
strikes. The quiet waiting of the
strikers may be one of the surprises
hinted at by the national officers.
From one or two points the strikers
are reported as restless and eager
for action, but so far they have kept
faith with their leaders nnd refrained
from committing any breach of tbe
The United States Steel corporation
It was learned today from an official
source, will at once proceed In a sys
tematic manner to start its closed
sheet mills, making the non-union
plants of the Kiskimlnetas valley the
cradle where strike-breakers will be
trained and then sent out to the mills
that are closed.
So far as President Schwab Is con
cerned no overtures will be made to
the workers. In a talk with a Pitts
burg man in New York yesterday be
said: "We have made our last propo
sition to the Amalgamated associa
tion and will now proceed to start
our works."
President Shaffer makes this coun
ter statement: "The next proposition
must come frcm the United - States
Steel corporation officials."
Thus the two officials stand. It
seems as if only outside efforts can
bring them together. The trust offi
cials have decided to go ahead slowly
In the matter of starting mills and to
do so with aa little publicity as pos
sible. The strongholds of the sheet com
pany are the mills at Vandergrift, the
largest in the country, Leechburg, Ap
polo and Scottdale. It has been de
elded to take aa many skilled men
away from these places as possible
without retarding operations there and
start the mills where there is the
least danger of an outbreak. The
places left vacant at the mills men
tioned will be filled with men deserv
ing of promotion and they will be
given better positions. This move
will be undertaken slowly and with
caution. The plan further contem
plates that after a time many of the
strikers will return when they see
one after another of the closed mills
resuming. This plan was tested and
was found to be feasible so far as the
mills at Hyde Park and Wellsvllle

what is called wheat grass. It is a
superior grass and sells at $8 a ton
when alfalfa brings about $3."

LINCOLN, Neb., Aug. 7, State Su
perintendent Fowler is preparing for
a campaign of improvement in the
condition and appearance of school
buildings and grounds in rural dis
tricts. He does not intend to advo
cate an increase in the expenditure
of funds for this particular purpose,
but be will insist on having all school
property under his supervision kept
as neat as the appropriations will al
low. In his tours over the state, Mr.
Fowler has found considerable school
property in a badly neglected state,
due in nearly every Instance to care
lessness on the part of school officers
rather than to lack of funds.
"It is my intention to publish some
time during the winter a pamphlet
on the rural school, its architecture,
material, grounds, furnishings, etc.,"
said Mr. Fowler. "The pamphlet will
be well Illustrated. It will contain il
lustrations of the best, the average
and the poorest school buildings in
tbe state that are made of stone, brick,
wood or sod. I want photographs of
representative school buildings in all
sections of tbe state. I want also
interior views, representing the- two
extremes of tasteful de'joration and
of criminal neglect I .vant some
views that will show the condition
of tbe grounds and the outbuilding..
The publication will be a graphic ex
hibit of the actual school conditions ,
of tbe state, designed to inform the
public and show them the advan
tages under which the schools and
school people labor in different parts
of the state. I hare asked the vari
ous county superintendents to assist
me in obtaining these photographs. I '
have asked them also for information
relative in rural school matters, such
as how many have patent desks, how
many have home-made desks, how
many have both, and as to tbe use
of slate blackboards, plaster boards,
wooden boards and other kinds of
boards, and how many schools have
none, besides several other questions."
