PERRY, HOUSTON COUNTY, GA., THURSDAY, JUNE 27, 1901.
Our Regular Correspondence.
The word has gone fourth from
the Administration that Senator
Cullom must be the next Chairman
of the Senate Committee on For
eign Relations, not only to keep
Senator Lodge, with his radical
ideas about abrogating the Clav-
ton-Bulwer Treaty,away from the
post, but ajso because Cullom has
taken a strong stand for recipro
city and Lodge is opposed to it.
Though there has been no open
public avowal on the part of the
Administration of what the Home
Market Club wonld call “back
sliding”, the suspicions of the
Protective Tariff League, which
are finding expression, appear to
be well founded. A determined
contest between the Administra
tion forces and the most stubborn
protectionists of the party is ex
pected over the question of recip
rocity on the opening of Congress.
The conflict is not confined to the
question raised by Representative
Babcock, who proposes to place
products of the Steel Trust on the
free list, but extends to the poli
cy of opening new markets and of
fostering trusts as a means of un
derselling rivals in foreign mar
kets. The President holds the
opinion with which he is credited
that there must be some flexibili
ty given to the tariff system—
through reciprocity— to facilitate
the fullfillment of his dream of
commercial supremacy. Some of
his Cabinet believe that the^coun-
try has outgrown a part of the
needs of protection and that to
find markets is now the thing.
The third Assistant Postmaster
Genera], Mr. Madden, has an
nounced that the order will soon
be issued depriving of the privileges
of second class mail rates, all
publications that give premiums
with their papers. He asked some
400 papers what they thought of
such a rule, being careful to query
only such as give no premiums.
About three fourths of these en
dorsed the idea and Mr. Madden
says that this proves that the
country is overwhelmingly in fa
vor of it. He takes no accouut of
the opposition of such publishers
as The Century, Harper’s, Mc
Clure’s, Life, Review of Reviews,
The Churchman Company, Out
ing Publishing Company, Congre
gational Work, Evangelist Pub
lishing Company, Christian Work,
New York Observer, E. L. Kellogg
Company, Funk&Wagnalls Com-
prny, New York Weekly Witness,
Orange Judd Company, Phelps
Publishing Company, Publsc
Opinion. The highnandedness of
this proposed rule is shown by
the fact that in his circular Mr.
Madden admits frankly that Con
gress has been asked three times
by tie Department tofso restrict
the second class rates and has
three times refused to do so. Now
the Department discovers that it
can act without a special law in
the case, and proposes to work a
reform that Congress has three
times refused to bring about.

Nagging At Bryan.
There is a disposition on the
part of several self-styled Demo
cratic newspapers that did not
loyally support Mr. Bryan in his
two races for the presidency as
the nominee of the Democratic
party to nag him on the slightest
pretext and at every possible op
portunity. They can neither treat
him fairly nor let him alone, but
appear to be ever on the alert to
misrepresent and belittle him.
The Philidelphia Record belongs
to this class of newspapers. We
might refer to some of the same
sort nearer home,but it is an edi
torial paragraph in that paper
now before us that suggests these
few lines. The Record suggests that
“as President McKinley has ab
solutely declined a third nomina
tion in spite of the facts of his
growing popularity and of the
outspoken preference of some of
his admirers, it would be well for
Mr. Bryan to follow the example
set by his sucsessful opponent.”
Continuing, the Record reminds
us that “twice the Democratic
party has sacrificed its self in the
effort to push Mr. Bryan into the
White House,” and that it is now
Mr. Bryan’s turn to do the sacri
ficial act by stepping aside, so
that some man might be named
who would satisfy and solidify
the whole party.” Mr. Bryan has
announced more than once since
his lasc defeat that he did not ex
pect to be a candidate for the
presidency again. Only a few days
ago such an announcement was
made by him *and publisned
throughout the country. The Rec
ord has certainly not failed to see
these announcements. Yet it in
sists on referring to him as a can-
didat for a third nomination for
the presidency. There are over
six millions of loyal Democrats in
the country who voted for Mr.
Bryan to be president and who
respect himfor his ability, patri
otism and steadfast adherence to
principle, and there is nothing to
be gained by those who despise
him, because he would not fall
down and worship the golden calf
with them, by nagging him.
Deafness Cannot be Cured
by local applications, as they can
not reach the diseased portion of
the ear. There is only one way
to care deafness, and that is by
constitutional remedies. Deaf
ness is caused by au infUmed con
dition of the mucous lining of the
Eustachian Tube. When this tube
gets inflamed you have a rumbling
sound of imperfect hearing, and
when it is entirely closed deafness
is the result, and unless the iofDf
mation can be taken out and this
tube restored to its normal condi
tion, hearing will be destryoed for
ever; niue cases out of ten are
caused by catarrh, which is^ noth
ing but an inflamed condition of
the mucous surfaces.
We will give One Hundred Dol
lars for any case of Deafness
(caused by catarrh) that cannot
be cured by Efall’s Catarrh Cure.

Wall street is speculating as to
the amount of the July dividends.
The amount is placed as high as
$150,000,000. if it should be that
much it would be a record break
er. The amount paid out last July
was $125,000,000. There have been
several great enterprises started
within the last year and they will
There is considerable curiosity
to know whether or not the bil
lion dollar steel trust will pay a
dividend on its common stock. It
is thought by some that it will,
but if it should not it is regarded
as certain that it will on Aug. 1.
At present the Standard Oil
Company is the largest dividend
payer in the country, although its
capital is only $100,000,000, while
that of the great steel trust is
over a billion dollars. It is certain,
of course, that the billion dollar
trust will pay a dividend on its
preferred stock. That stock pays
7 per cent., but not all of it has
been issued. The amount of it is
$550,000,000. There is $550,000,-
090 of the common stock, and if
that should pay a 4 per cent, div
idend the steel trust would pay
more in diviuends than the Stan
dard Oil trust. The latter has paid
out almost $50,000,000in a single
year. But whether the steel trust
pays a dividend on its common
stock or not, there will be set
afloat a vast amount on July 1.
No “H” In It.
A young tenor singer of London
was asked recently at a “smoker”
to favor the company with a song,
says an exchange. He gave a very
fair rendering of the once popular
“Happy Be Thy Dreams,’’but did
uot aspirate the letter “h” once.
When he had finished he resumed
his seat, which was next to one oc
cupied by a bald headed old man,
who bluntly remarked:
“You have a good voice young
man,but you didn’t sound a single
‘h’—and the song’s full of ’em.”
“I beg your pardon, sir,” retort
ed th evocalist with dignity, “you
are mistaken; it*dosen’t go any
’igher than G!”
