HILL FOR VICE PRESIDENT.
It is not strange that Fading Democrats
should be thinking of former Senator Da
vid B. Hi!l as a suitable candidate for
Vice President on the ticket with Mr.
Btyan. Senator Clay is of the opinion, ap
parently,! hat no better.sSection could I)' 1
made, fie points out that Mr. Hill is not
only one of the ablest statesmen of the
country, but that ar this time he occu
pies a dominating Influence in th r * great
state cf New r York.
The Journal is the leading Bryan pip r
in New York. Its editor and proprietor,
Mr. Hearst, has been mentioned for
second place on the Democratic tick t. It
is evident, howev< r. that he could not
poll nearly so largo a vo e in New York
as Mr. Hill. There is nothing aga nst Mr
Hearst, so far as known in this sVtion cf
the country. He lacks the experlen* e in
l>oliticß, however, that Mr. Hill has. It is
true that it has been urged against him
that he is one of tin* plutocrats. A Repub
lican paper, however, kindly defends him
against that charge it declares that if
he is a plutocrat, he is not cne of the
kind that hoards ivealth. He is not an
accumulator of wealth. He is a distribu
tor of It. It is probable, if all accoun s
are true, that he has distributed a very
considerable part of Hie vast fortune left
by his father.
There is not much probability that Mr.
Hearst will get the vice presidential notn
ir.aticn, but what h s paper says is well
c-Hulated to convince Dcm >< rats that it
rouli not do a wis r thing than to nomi
nate Mr. Hill. That paper, In commenting
on the Oregon e> t on, says that the
Democracy caunot safely fount on any
e'cctoiaj vo es from the Pacific coast. Mr
Bryan got five electoral votes in that sec
tion In 18%. There is very little* prospect
of his getting any this year. The Pacific
coast states favor expansion. They have
had some of the trade with the Philip
pines, and they are lo king for more of
it. The Democrat!? party need not look
lor assistance in that quart r.
The Journal p ints out where the elec
toral votes necessary to elect the Demo#-
cratic ticket can be had. but in each in
stance it includes the thirty-six of New
York. It practi ally admits that a Demo
cratic victory in New York is necessary
to Democratic success. On thi? point it
says: “Let the Democrats carry New
York and they will pick up electoral vote*
enough elsewhere in the East to make
them safe, no matter how many they
lose In the far West. Let them lose New
York, and, as the Oregon election shows,
they are gone ”
This Is tiie situation as seen by a man
prominently mentioned for the second
place on the ticket with Mr. Bryan. There
are reasons for thinking that the situa- !
tion is quite accurately sated. Assuming
that it is. does it not appear that no |
effort should be spared to carry New
York? Jt may be that Mr. Hill would
not be willing to accept the nomination
for Vice President. Senator Cay says
he thinks he woul 1 accept P. He is n
long wdy tHe ablest man ihat has yet been
mentioned in connection with the place,
and he could carry New York for the
Democratic ticket if any man could.
Sters should be taken at once to find out i
if he wou’d accept the nomination. If he
is willing th re ought to be a movement 1
started at once to bring about his nomi
nation unanimously. Bryan and Hill
would be a strong ticket.
A TALE TOM) IN t'Ol HT.
One of the remarkable cases that has
come to the surface In the bankruptcy
court In New York Is that of Arnold
Fieklsteln. It has not been so very long
since he was thought to be one of the
rich men of that city. He was the head
of great silk importing house, and had
a splendid residence in New York and a
summer home at Tuxedo. He lived ns
became a man of fortune—that is. he lived
liberally. He was a great club man, fre
quented all of the first-class restaurants
on Broadway, and was always seen at
the theater on first nights.
Recently he filed a petition In bankrupt
cy. This petition showed hln assets to
be about ,$195,000, and his debts a little
more than $973,000. It was at once evident
to his creditors that they would not get
a very big percentage of their claims, and
so they hunted around to find out what
hod become of Mr. Fieldsteln’s money.
It did not take them long to discover
that be had become Infatuated with the
gome of roulette. Apparently hundreds
of thousands of dollars had been squand
ered in establishments in which that game
was the leading feature.
Then the creditors decided to get back
from the gamblers some of the money that
Mr. Fieldstcln had left with them. They
brought suits for large amounts, hosting
their suits on checks which *Mr. Fleldoteln
had given for his gambling debts. The
law permits suits to be brought for three
times the amount lost In a gambling place.
It seems to be the understanding that
Mr. Fieldstcln had not been gambling
more than a year. It is not often that
so largo a fortune is squandered on games
of chance in so short a time. It is doubt
ful if the bankruptcy court will disclose
another case like this of Mr. F’le’.dstein’a,
though some queer things come to light
in that tribunal.
THIXO9 LEFT I M>o\E.
The attitude of Congress In respect to
two things, nmong others., during its re
cent session, is likely to cause the Repub
lican party trouble. It refused to pass th *
anti-trust bill and it did not fix approxi
mately the time for bringing to an ard
our military occupation of Cuba. The
null-trust bill was passed 1 by the Hois
and sent to ihe Senate. The latter ’ o'y
referred it to the Judiciary Commit o.
and there it will rest until afier ih* presi
dential campaign. Senator Bcon w m
right in saying that Congress ought n t
to adjourn until that bill had b en pus.-ei.
The Democratic members of the Hens*
demanded that adjournment should iot
lake place until the antl-tiust in had
been acted upon, but the Republicans only
laughed at them. It is doubtful if he Re
publicans, when they introduced h. had
any intention of passing it befoie the pres

PRESIDENT KlUlHrit OBSTINATE.
According to the interview with Presi
j dent Kruger, published in our dispatcher
| yesterday, the Boers have no intention of
surrendering as long as 4 hey can keep
".no armed men in the field. In other
; words, it seems to be their purpose to
| inaugurate a guerilla warfare. They could
not do a. more unwise thing.
It is probable that if the actual situa- '
ion were placed before the people of the
; Transvaal, and the question put to them
I as to whether or not they were willing to
I surrender, leaving it to the British gov
i ernmeht to fix the terms, the great ma
; jority would answer in the affirmative.
! The impression gained from the dis
! patches is that they regard their cause
as hopelessly lost. Their generals have
not been able to get them *o make .a
stand against the British recently, not be
cause they lacked courage, but simply
because they saw that nothing was to
beg; ined by further resistance. No
doubt thousands of them will follow their
officers to (he Lydenburg district, and
will obey orders as long as the Transvaal
government keeps up a show of opposi
tion, but they will not do so with the
same spirit that stirred them to action
at the beginning of the war.
There would be some reason in keep- ;
trig up a hopeless fight if it were b -Hove l [
that British rule would be unjust* and
harsh. There is nothing, however, to jus- 1
tif • siyßi a belief. Mr. Chamberlain sold
some time ago, that in the event of Brit
ish success, the people of the Transvaal |
and tht Orange Free State would be ac
corded the s*me degree of liberty that
the. Canadians and Australians hod. They
could hardly expect more .under the cir
cumstances. They would feel deeply, of
course, their les- of independence, but !
the great majority would scarcely realize j
that a change had taken place. The j
Boers would have control of all local af
fairs, jus* as they do now.
The newspapers of Canada have been
giving a great deal of attention to this
matter recently. The Toronto Globe, for
instance, after discussing the opportuni
ties the South African communities have j
for advancement, expresses the hope that
“the fruits of (hi? war in South Africa, j
now happily almost closed, may be peace ,
and security; that some of us may live to
soi* there a confederation as free, as unit- I
e.i and as prosperous as our own. and
that, by wise and liberal dealing, the ;
race problem may there be as happily
Strived as it has been in a country where
in n French-Canadian has risen to the
highest position in the gift of the people.”
It is safe lo say that if the Boers were
to surrender unconditionally they would ]
have very little cause to complain of the
treatment they received. There has been
nothing in (he South African dispatches
indicating (hat the British soldiers enter
tain a feeling of bitterness against the
Boers. In fact, if the British government
were to impose harsh terms on the Boers
it would be condemned by the entire civil
FOREIGN l)KM\\l> FOll STEEL I*llo
It is rather remarkable that, prices for
steel products should decline so much,
while the foreign demand for these prod
ucts is so great. It was stated by a
steel expert in Wall street a day or two
ago, that the foreign demand for teel
rails would be sufficient to keep the great
steel companies busy for ten years.
It is a fact that the whole world Is com
ing to this country for iron and steel
products. It is not improbable that the
drop in prices was largely due to a pur
pose *o capture great contracts for steel
and iron products about to be given out In
Europe, The London Statist says that
the decline in the price* of steel in this
country, is viewed in Europe with gen
uine alarm, because it is recognized that
at *he lower prices steel and iron con be
produced by the American mills at a
profit. That paper, in commenting upon
the ability of American iron and steel
makers, to cut price* without getting
below' the profit line, said: “Over and
above oil. the shadow of America is tow
ering over lhe market.”
Russia is now r preparing to negotiate a
loan of $50,000,000 in this country, every
cent of which she expe ls to spend here
for steel roils, steel ears, locomotives and
other things necessary for the equipment
of a railroad. The chief engineer of the
Trans-Siberian Railway Is now' in New
York city, for the purpose of purchasing
electrical and steel supplies for that road,
and it is stated that the British govern
ment will soon let contracts for an im
mense amount of steel product* of one
kind and another for a great railroad in
South Africa, that has been decided upon.
It in well known that the steel makers
1 of Alabama and Tennessee set the prices
for steel. They can make it nt less co-u
* than it can be made elsew’here In the
world. It will not be in the least surpris
ing if. within five years, more iron and
steel are made at Birmingham than at
any other one place in the country. There

that the Governor is too grasping; that
he is trying to get too many good things

and keep you in good ©piri's. I will bring
you some medicine to-morrow.” What the
worldly sister actually did was to buy a
bottle of prepared cocktails and carefully
wash the libel off.
“Now,’’ said she, as she presented it to
the invalid, “this i* very expensive, and
I don’t want you to give a taste of it to
a soul. Take i( n'.l yourself, and take a
wineglassful about every three hours.” ,
The next day the widow again paid a
visit to her cld mail sister and found a 1
great state of affairs. The old !idy. who i
had never tasted liquor in her life before, j
was In a decidedly hilarious mood. “I j
feel as young as 1 did fifty years ago.” she j
confided to her sister. ‘‘That tonic is the
finest thing in the world. I’ll need another |
bottle to-morrow. Where can I buy it?”
Queer Effect* of Whim*.
“It’s a curious thing how some people
will sacrifice themselves to their whims.”
said a man who pride* himself upon, his
study of human nature, according to the
Philadelphia Record. “I don’t mean
wealthy people, for they can usually af
ford to do as they like. I am speaking
now of people in moderate, or less than
moderate, circumstances. I have in mind
n young man whose tastes run to expen
sive neckwear. He wouldn't think of
wearing a tie that costs less than $2, and
he has stacks of them. Now, he can’t
afford this luxury, so he has to stint
himself ;.y wearing $3 shoes and sls ready
made suits. He doesn’t realize the incon
gruity of hts attire, and is perfectly happy
if his tie is ail right.
“Another chap 1 know doesn’t pay the
slightest attention to his personal appear
ance. ;ind is usually rather frayed-look
ing That's because he spends his money
on expensive cigarettes. He smokes only
the highest-priced imported Egyptian
brand, and they cost him 4 cents apiece.
He is a fiend and smokes probably forty a
day. You couldn’t hire him to smoke a
domestic cigarette, which costs half a
cent. Yet if he did he could afford to
dress himself as he should. I could cite
numerous instances of this tendency to
extravagance, which have come under
my personal observation. I can only ex
plain it as a lack of mental balance.”

A Souih African farmer, who has lost
some cow’s by the cattle plague, was fully
persuaded that he had himself been at
tacked by the epldeml?, says Collier’s
\Veek\v Forthwith he hurried off and
consulted his medical man, who tried to
lnugh him out of the absurd notion, hut
to ro purpose.
The* farmer (hen went to an old. well
known practitioner, who. being a bit of a
1 wig. and seeing how matters stood, en
ter, and minutely into the detail* of the
case, xpressed hU concurrence with the
i patient's views, and told him he could
| cure him.
The doctor thereupon wio e a prescrip
tion. sealed it u|>, and told the farmer ro
go to the druggist In the next town.
The farmer lost no time in going with
(he prescription, but was somewhat star
red when the druggist showed him the
formula, which ran thus:
“This man has the cattle plague. Take
him into the hack yard and shoot him,
according to law.”
i That cured-'him.
