Meyers of the First district made the

Slums of Lindy Somerset
London Lady Henry Somerset has
once again comejnto public notice as the
owner or a tract of land at Somers Town
a neighborhood within the limits of the
city of London and which is covered with
old dilapidated dwellings The authori
ties have offioially declared the region a
condemned insanitary area but there
appears to be no law under which the
structures can be razed or the tenants
compelled to seek other quarters The
place has come into notice from the fact
that five inquests have been held within
the last month upon people who have
died suddenly from acoident within the
area It is not claimed that Lady Somer
set is directly responsible for existing
conditions but it is contended that in
view of her considerable wealth it would
be an easy matter for her to buy off the
present lessee of her ground and cause the
polluted buildings to be either razed or

Washington Ex Secretary John W

deal to do with shaping the future policy
of the vast Chinese empire When he
sailed from San Francisco for China a
couple of weeks ago it was generally
understood among his friends nere that
he was going as the chief adviser of Li
Hung Chang the new Chinese premier

the Chinese viceroy then discovered how
valuable it would be to have a skilled
diplomat to advise him on all foreign

Advices from Cuba
Key West Advices from Cuba give
plainer descriptions of the movements of
the insurgents than can be sent by cable
Antonio Maceo has moved to a plain coun
try on the south coast of Pinar del Rio
with the intention of making an attempt
to pass the torcha protected in the mean
time as he hopes by the insurgents at
the rear of the trocha He is at present
supposed to be at Carojal In the direction
of the swamp of Majala It is thought
probable that it will be difficult for him to
pass by the south coast to the western
portion of Pinar del Rio because Gen
Weylers columns are fortifying strategic
positions taken from the insurgents near
Pmar del Rio so as to form a strong base
of operations When once these are fin
ished Gen Weyler calculates that ho will
ue able to dispose of 10000 more men in
pursuit of Maceo and the general opinion
is that he will be able to give him a deci
sive blow

to the God of Nations for Blessings
Vouchsafed the United States
Homage to the Universal Ruler
The President Wednesday issued the
following thanksgiving proclamation
By the President of the United States
The people of the United States should
never be unmindful of the gratitude they
owe the God of nations for his watchful
care which has shielded them from disas
ter and pointed out to them the way of
peace and happiness Nor should they
ever refuse to acknowledge with contrite
hearts their proneness to turn away from
feods teachings and to follow with sin
ful pride after their own devices
i To the end that these thoughts may
be quickened it is fitting that on a day
especially appointed we should join to
gether in approaching the throne of
grace with praise and supplication
Therefore I Grover Cleveland Pres
ident of the United States do hereby des
ignate and set apart Thursday the 2Gth
day of the present month of November
to be kept and observed as a day of
thanksgiving and prayer throughout our
On that day let all our people forego
their usual work and occupation and as
sembled in their accustomed places oil
worship let them with one accord render
thanks to the Ruler of the Universe for
our preservation as a nation and our de
liverance from every threatened danger
for the peace that has dwelt within our
boundaries for our defense against dis
ease and pestilence during the year that
has passed for the plenteous rewards
that have followed the labors of our hus
bandmen and for all the other blessings
that have been vouchsafed to us
And let us through the mediation of
him who has taught us how to pray im
plore the forgiveness of our sins and a
continuation of heavenly favor
Let us not forget on this day of
thanksgiving the poor and needy and by
deeds of charity let out offerings of praise
be made more acceptable insthe sight of
the Lord r
Witness my hand and the seal of the
United States which I have caused to be
hereto affixed

Prospects of Great Increase of
General Traffic
Chicago railroad officials say that for
months their business has been exceed
ingly dull and earnings have been below
the dull months of the last dull year
Now a revival is looked for in freight
circles Officials predict one of the heav
iest movements of merchandise known in
many years Country merchants as well
as the jobbers in the large cities have
allowed their stocks to run down to the
minimum The movement of west bound
merchandise has been the lightest for
many years Thousands of stocks must
be replenished and country merchants
will buy heavily This means heavy
loads for the railroads and correspond
ingly heavy earnings No falling off in
the heavy east bound movement of grain
which began under the cut freight rates
of last month is looked for Orders for
cars are coming into general freight
offices from all points in the west and
more than one road fears a car famine
As most of this grain will move under
contracts made at the reduced rates there
will not be large increases in revenue
from that class of freight but the great
est economy of operation as well as the
greatest amount of revenue will develop
from the movement of loaded cars both
ways Passenger men are also expecting
heavy business Commercial travelers
make up a large percentage of all roads
passengers Many merchants prefer buy
ing their goods at the large centers to or
dering of traveling men and they too
will soon be using passenger trains The
winter tourist business also has been

men are more than pleased with the man

clergy business this year and that a like
plan may be adopted by the Eastern
lines That however is hardly likely

tJpright Character of James Gordon
Bennett in the Newspaper World
The character of James Gordon Ben
nett as a leader or journalism is admir
ably summed up in an interesting ar
ticle by James Creelman As an edit
or says the writer Mr Bennett is im
patient of political control or partner
ship He scents danger in every ap
proach and he will deliberately attack
a party to prove that he is not under
its influence According to him an
editor should be a man in a watch
tower out of sound and out of reach
Otherwise there would be conspiracy
and compromise Private promises
are to be broken in the public interest
Friendships are to be regarded as traps
for the editorial conscience So Mr
Bennett is a lonely man In a crowd a
hermit in the midst of bustling life
I can tell one story that illustrates the
magnificent perversity and shrewifh
ness that have preserved the Herald as
a historic example of incorruptible
journalism When Gen Crespo under
took to overthrow the rotten and tyran
nical government of President Palacio
he had thirty badly armed Venezue
lans to follow him The revolution was
sanctioned by the people but they were
afraid at first to join Crespos stand
ard Gradually however he gathered
together a small army and advanced
upon the government forces Palacio
and his friends had looted the treasury
money was needed to crush the revolt
and a sum great enough for the pur
poses could only be had in Europe
About this time an old friend of Mr
Bennett called upon him in Paris and
explained that the Venezuelan govern
ment desired to place loan bonds for
many millions of dollars in the Lon
don market He informed Mr Bennett
that he was to be the aent of Palacio
in the matter and would make a for
tune out of it Then he asked for the
co operation of the Herald on the score
of old time friendship and finally he
announced that if the Herald could be
little the revolutionary cause and so
stimulate the confidence of bankers in
the government bonds the transaction
would be worth two or three hundred
thousands dollars to Mr Bennett At
this Mr Bennett smiled grimly
It is worth a million dollars to the
Herald to know these facts he said
I do not quite understand you
said the friend
It is worth 1000000 to support the
other side
Why Mr Bennett am I too late
Have the other men seen you
No not at all But you have given
me proof that the government of Vene
zuela deserves to fall It is worth
1000000 to the Herald to be on the
right side I shall back up the revolu
tion and let the truth be known to the
In vain the friend pleaded that his
conversation was confidential and that
anewspaperhad no right to take advan
tage facts communicated under the
seal of secrecy Within an hour a cable
message set the wonderful machinery
of the Herald in motion and day after
day its columns were crowded with
dispatches from special correspondents
in Venezueala describing thiev ylwovt
the revolutionary army and the weak
ness of the government These dis
patches were reproduced in all the
European capitals and Palacios bonds
could not find a purchaser Without
money or credit the tyrant fell and
the first act of Crespo after he enter
ed Caracas at the head of his victorious
army was to send a long cablegram
at the public expense thanking the
Herald over his own signature for its
services in the cause of liberty and
constitutional government

Nebraska for Bryan
Omaha Although the returns from Ne

incomplete for two or three days enough
is known to warrant the conclusion that
Nebraska has been carried for Mr Bryan
and the fusion state ticket by majorities
ranging from 5000 to 15000 and possibly
more The vote for presidential electors
on both tho republican and fusion tickets
is considerably heavier than that given to
candidates for state offices and congress
men Holcomb will run from 8J0 to 1503
lower than Bryan and the candidates on
the fusion state ticket will not quite reach
the vote for Ilolcomb This is also true
as regards the vote for MacColl and the
republican state ticket as compared with
the McKinley electors
