FILIPINOS RESORT TO A PETITION.
Gen. Otis has given out several inter
j views since his arrival from Manila, re
specting the situation in the Philippines.
In all of them he sa3*s that the war in
the island* is over, and that the great ma
jority of the people are anxious,for peace,
ond ere satisfied with American rule.
There are a few armed band*. he says,
composed largely of robbers, who are
conducting a sort of guerilla warfare. It
may take years to get rid of these rob
bers. Gen. Otis has no doubt that with
in a very ehort time, everything will bo
running smoothly in the Philippines, end
that the United States will have an Im
mense commerce with them.
It Is to be hoped that the situation is as
Gen. Otis describes it. It seems, how
ever. from' a petition which has been for
warded to Congress from the celebrated
Katipunan Society, that there is 3 prob
ability of a disturbed condition of affairs
in the islands for a long time to come.
This society is believed to have stirred
up the insurrection against Spain. It
claims four m.ilions of members, who are
scattered throughout the islands. It is
certainly a very influential secret society
This society, in its petition to Congress,
declares that the Filipinos will never
submit to American sovereignty, and that
it will continue the war for years, if
necessary, to accomplish the independence
of the Philippines.
It Is evident that the Filipinos are not
yet subdued. It was stated in the dls- '
patches a few days ago. that nearly all
of *he native officials appointed by Gen.
Otis had proven treacherous. The mayors
of towns, for instance, violated their oath
of office without hesitation when they
could assist the insurgents by doing so.
In the dispatches yesterday, it was stated
that in the mass of Aguinaldo’s private
papers, which had been discovered by
Gen. Funston, evidence was found that
leading native business firms in Manila,
that had never been suspected of being in
sympathy with the insurrection, had been
rendering all the assistance they could
The difficulty in establishing local gov
ernments in the Philippines is in getting
native officials in whom reliance con be j
placed. All of them appear to be treacher
ous. They make promises of loyalty, blit j
they take the first opportunity to put
themselves in communication with the in
surgent leaders. It looks therefore os if
there might- be something in the claim
put forth by the Katipunan Society,
namely, that it practically dominates the
islands, ond that it will never consent to
peace until the Filipinos are given their
independence. As the United States gen
erally accomplish what they undertake,
k is probable that the kind of fighting
that has been going on in the islands for
the Inst few months, will continue for a
good long time.
The fall which has taken place In the
price of iron, steel, lumber and some other
commodities does not greatly disturb the
producer* of these articles. They know
they have been getting boom prices, and
that production has overtaken con
sumption. The consumers could not con
tinue to pay the boom prices, ond there
fore the producers have been gradually
lowering prices with the hope of finding
a place at which consumption would again
keep pace with production. They may not
have found it yet. but the probabilities are
that they will soon.
It is not believed that the country is
gravitating toward a period of business
depression. There are no signs of anything
of that kind. What has happened in
pimply that the very high prices have
stimulated production far beyond the nor
mal, and. nt the same time have cut down
consumption. Just as soon as consumers
become satisfied that prices are as low
as they fire likely to go their demand for
supplies will he increased.
The lumbermen of this section are satis
fied that the price of lumber is not likely
to go much below what it is now. Indeed,
they are inclined to think there will be an
advance in prices in the near future. Al
stons the line of production the feeling is
that it is only a question of a little while
when prices will settle on a normal basis,
and that there, will then be a long period
As 41 rule business is dull during the
year of a presidential election. It may be
that the content this year is already hav
ing a bad effect on business. It is not be
lieved. however, that the fall fhat has
taken place in prices within the last two
months has been brought about by the ap
proaching presidential contest. It is prob
able that the Republicans would like to
have the country belieVe that the reviving
of the silver issue is responsible for the
falling off in the volume of business, and
the fall in prices, but the people know
1 that such is not the fact. The change
that has taken place in the business s.t
uation has not been brought about by pol
Occasionally a case gets into the courts,
and thus before the public, alleging a mis
description by the shipper of good* ship
ped, in order to secure a lower freight
rate. But such cases that come to public
attention arc rare. On the other hand, it
is quite common to hear of complaints
against the railroads, and (here is seldom
a session of any state Legislature or of
Congress in which there is not one or
more bills introduced to correct or pre
vent the alleged misdeeds of the ralltoads.
At the present time there is being urged
upon Congress the necessity of modifying
the interstate commerce law tn such man
ner as to give the Interstate Commerce
Commission more power over the rail
Meantime, while few cases of attempts
on the part of shippers to secure lower
rates by falsely describing the goods ship
ped come io public notice, the number of
shipments under false pretenses is very
large every year. The Railway Age says
that during the year 1899 the inspectors of
the trunk lines doing business from New
York. Boston and Ph'ladelphla to the Wen
discovered 235.000 instances in which shtp
lrrs misdescribed goods actually shipped,
to as to get lower rates on them. Tills
was only ,n the westbound business for
the three cities named. As many as 19.000
Imilar Instances of fraudulent billing were
found among shipments from the western
termini of the same roads. It would sp
j rear, therefore, that the railroads are not
i alone In al’egrd wickedness In connection
with freights and rates. Many shippers
are as willing and eager to hoodwink and
defraud th# roads as the roads are to take
advantage of every loophole In the law to
increase their incomes.
There esnnot be any question that Gen
Otis thinks the war in the Philippines is
practically over. He has told the reporters

DANGEROUS MOI MLIIANKS.
If proof were needed of the wisdom of
the Georgia law which imposes stringent
conditions as precedent to permission to
practice medicine in this state., it might
be had from an incident which occurred in
Chicago the other day. Several officers of
an alleged medical college were arre:-ted
for using the. mails for fraudulent pur
poses. and hound over for trial.
Using the n a Is to defraud, however,
was not the worst part of their offense.
It appears that people had been
running what, in the vernacular, is called
a “diploma mill.” The diplomas, written
in Latin, sealed with imposing looking

names having “M. D.,“ “Ph. D.," and the
like, after them, certified that the persons
namtd in them had taken a full course of
instruction in the medical college named
at the head of the sheet, and were com
petent to practice medicine.
All of the evidence goes to show that
the so-called college was not a college at
all, but represented hardly more than
a desk from which the. fakirs worked a
smooth confidence game upon creduious
young men, and played into the hands
of unscrupulous men who might wish a
medical diploma to aid them in swindling
schemes. All was fish that came to the
net of the alleged college, however. No
fee for a diploma was either too big or
too small to bs taken. One hundred dol
lars was the list price of the “sheepskin.”

that telephoning by cable from New York

Mark Twain'* Latest.
Mark Twain has been living quietly in
England for some time now, and were ft
not that he appeared to give evidence be

of copyright, scarcely a soul outside his

bel in the Philadelphia Saturday Evening
Post. The other evening he was dining
at the house of a friend, and seated next
to him was an American who had only
the: day reached England. They were, of
course, talking war, and the newcomer,
wishing to knowr the feeling in England
in the matter of the future of the Trans
vaal, asked Mark Twain how he found
public sentiment in England regarding the
independence of the republics.

the English are paraphrasing a part of
the burial service. They are all quietly
repeating. Mr Gladstone giveth and the

When Reed Was Young tn Law.
One of the most interesting incidents of
Thomas B. Reed’s career in California is
told by Robert P. Porter and vouched for
by the ex-speakor, says Success. It was
in 1863. during the Civil War, when the
legal tender act was much discussed in
California, where a gold basis was then
maintained, that Wallace, whose office ad
joined the one in which Reed was study
ing. happened in one day and satd: "Mr
Reed, I understand you want to be ad
mitted to the bar. Have you studied law?"
"Yes, sir, I studied law in Maine, while
teaching." "Well," said Wallace, "I have
one question to ask. Is the legal tender
act cons' Rational?” "Yes.” said Reed
"You shall be admitted to the bar.” said
Wallace. Tom Bodley, a deputy sheriff,
who h3d legal aspirations, was asked the
same question, and he said “No." "W"e
will admit you both." said Wallace, “for
anybody who can answer, off-hand, a ques

rue ugh,' remarked the woman. "I want

clrrk. The woman's face showed keen

she replied, "I*ll he back directly." Then
she ran to her carriage and reappeared,
with a little Japanese spaniel in her arms.

'You ore pretty nearly forty years old ard
you are net married yet. Y'ou ought to be
ashamed of yourself. 'Why haven't you
got a wife?’ 'Well,' said Penrose, in (he
firsit place I have never found anybody I
thought would have ‘ me. In the second
place, I never saw anybody I thought I
wanted.' 'Penrose.' said Quay. laughingly,
'I order you to get married. The papers
say I'm your boss and that you are the
creature of the machine. Now, simply as
a matter of good politics. I order you to
find a pretty girl and get married.' 'All
right, senator,' said the Junior sena 0..
I'm a good soldier and l always obey

proud of it. If you say marry. I'll do it.

Blaine finished Ills Speech.
It happened during one cf the slumping
lours back in the late '7o's or the early
I ’BO s, Mr. Blaine was addressing an open
air meeting ‘is i Massachusetts town,
says Lippineott’s Magazine. The speak
ers platform, which had been hurriedly
! t reeled for the occasion, began to groT.
under its load of "CGtingutshed ciiizen-:."
j atid presently settled gracefully to the
ground, tumbling the crowd on it to
gether in an undignified heap, but do
ing no more serious damage than ruf
fling their hair and clothing and injuring
When the crash was over Mr. Blaine
was the first man on his feet. There
chanced to be one solitary plank still left
in position. This was the plank at the
side next to the audience, which had been
nailed firmly to the upright posts at the
corners and. therefore, had not gone
down with the rest of the platform.
I'pon this plank Mr. Blaine promptly
clambered, rose to his feet, calm and dig
nified os ever, and, stretching forth his
hand to command silence, said:
"Ladles and Gentlemen; No matter
what happens. I have found that there
is always enough left of the Republican
platform to sand on. Such being fortu
nately the case on the present occasion, I
will now go ahead and finish my speech,
resuming the argument at the point I had
reached when things took a drop.”
And ar soon as the shouts of laughter
I and applause had died away the witty
se.'.tesmnn calmly proceeded to deliver
the rest of his speech, not even forget
ting a word of the peroration.
AT GRADUATING TIME.
From the Denver News.
The gradua'es are grirg forth—
God bless them, every one!—
To run this hard and stubborn world
Just as it should be run;
But much I fear they'll find 'hat facts
Don't always track wtth dreams;
And running this o’d earth Is not
As easy as it seems.
As seniors we are prone to think
Our wisdom is complete.
We've but to ask—the world will lay
Its trenhtes at our feet.
But schooldays done and work begun,
We learn to our regret
The Colh'ge of Experience
We have not mastered yet.
Ambition beckons on to us
And eagerly we press
Toward a distant, gleaming goal,
The Temple of Success.
It seems a pleasant Journey at
The dawning of life's day;
But as we stumble on. it grows
A long and .weary way.
The word l as garlands and applause
At graduating time:
And then forgets us the next day.
When we attempt to climb.
Life is a battle, where each one
Must sc k and hold his own.
He who would rise above the crowd
Must scale the hlghts alone.
This is the rule of life to-day
As it has ever been;
The world bestows its smiles on those
Who have the strength to win.
Beneath all outward semblances
It looks for merit true.
It little rarer how much you knew,
Eut asks what can y;u do?
Whtn ycu have it ft your college halls
You re barely at the s art.
For Wisdom's hlght is infinite
And long the ways of Art
Tou It find that In the school of life
Acts count for more than dreams;
i And running Ihls old earth is cot
As e*sy as It aeema. -•-

which is so effectively used by workmen
'in their labor disputes to deter other
workmen from continuing at work, has
been condemned as unlawful by the ap

Court in the case of Prince vs. the So
cialistic Co-operative Publishing Assecii
tion (31 Misc. 234). This association pub
lished in its daily toper a letter which
characterized Prince as a "miserable
scab who works six days in a shop and
thereby robs other poor devils of their
bread.” In the subsequent suit lor libel
the meaning and origin of the word was
Investigated. The witnesses seemed to
agree that the word is one of great op
probrium and indicates a person who 1s
regarded as "an outenst to he shunned
tjy his fellows." Presiding Justice Beck
man said it was a word of “ancient origin
in its application to persons of disrepute,”
and quoted the following definition from
the Century Dletionory: "A mean, paltri
er shabby fellow; a term of contempt; an
opprobrious term used by the workmen
or others who dislike his action." Justice
Beekman said there was no doubt that
the word in and of itself was libellous

- Massachusetts has a novel law for
the protection of roadside iroes, under
the provisions of which trees which a
town may wish to preserve are marked
and whoever In any way injures or de-’
faces a tree so marked is liable to a
fine of from $5 to SIOO. The mark is a
spike or a nail, with an M Impressed upon
the head, which Is driven Into 'he tre
ns a point four to six feet nbove the
ground. The law was enacted in i.sfto, and
its application has grown each year with
the spread of forestry sentiment. The
t.nils are supplpd by the state hoard of
agriculture, anil fhe board Is receiving
th'.s yenr more appflcitions ih m ever be
fore. Up to this year about 2.0 m nails
had been issued, or an average of about
30,000 a yenr. Thus far this year appli
cations have hern received from some
fifty cities and towns asking | n the ag
gregate for over 50.000 nails. This shows
a decided movement In favor of roadside
tret preservation, and inasmuch as the
applicants are for the most part agr . u!-
eural oommunitler the Indications are
favorable' for a cessation of the old prac
tice of cutting everything close down to
the 'raveled way. if every on* of ehe
210,000 nails had been used to spike a sin
gle tree, no allowance be ng made for
renewals, and the trees grew regularly
thlrty-three feet apart, there would be
to-day nearly 1,600 miles of roadside pro
vided with protected shade trees one inch
or more In diameter. This is about 7 per
cent, of the length of all the public roads
in the state.
