AN a* Turned Down In Favor ot
Senator Lodge—The AVi*oon*ln Man
lias Practically Retired From No
tice and N\ 111 Not Bea Candidate
Washington July 29.—“ What is the mat
ter with Senator Spooner of NNisconsln?
He did not make his appearance at the
Philadelphia Convention; he has not per
mitted himself to he interviewed concern
ing the Republican ticket or its platform;
and, stranger than ail. he announces that
he will not be a candidate for re-election
to the Senate.
His determination to voluntarily retire
from the senatorial arena is a mystery to
his personal and political friends, who
have repeatedly heard him express a
fondnfFs for service in the United States
Senate. There Is not a member of that
distinguished body who apparently de
rives greater satisfaction, personally and
politically, from the privilege of wearing
a senatorial toga, than the little giant
When Congress adjourned last June he
had not intimated to his closest friends
any intention of retiring from the Sen
ate. His recognized ability as a lawyer
and debater, and a statesman of more
than ordinary type, placed him in the
very front rank among the
leaders in the Senate. Indred, it is said
that his judgment on great questions of
national import is more highly regarded
by the President and by leading members
of the administration than any member
of the present Congress. Occupying the
position in the Senate he does to-day, and
with a fondness for the associations and
surroundings of political life at the na
tional capital, and with undisputed con
trol of the Republican party in Wiscon
sin. so long as it continues in power, the
sudden disappearance of Senator Spooner
from the administration circle s one of
the mysteries of the pending campaign.
RurNtioiiN That Are A*ked.
“Is Senator Spooner at war with Mc-
Kinley? Has he been offended by some
member of the administration’s sacred
circle, or does his political astuteness
and usual sound Judgment tell him that
Wisconsin cannot remain in the Republi
can column next November?”
These are some of the questions fre
quently asked because of the almost to
tal eclipse, politically, of the brainy little
man from Wisconsin, whom many con
spicuous Republicans have mentioned as
a presidential possibility in 1904.
In conversation yesterday with a well
known Republican from Wisconsin, who
Is a personal as well as a political friend
of Senator Spooner, I gleaned some infor
mation which may throw’ some light on
the mystery which now seems to envelop
the senior senator from Wisconsin. It
appears that early in the last session of
Congress, Senator Spooner was generally
regarded and accepted as the legal ad
viser of the President on all the great
national and international questions pend
ing before the Senafe. was frequent
ly invited to the White House in the even
ing, where he alone with the President
considered the legal propositions involved
in our foreign policy, and especially so
far as our relations with Cuba, Porto
Rico and the Philippines are concerned.
Senator Spooner made a very careful
study of the Philippine question, and it
was generally understood that he would
voice the sentiments of the administra
tion in a speech on that subject. It was
supposed and expected that he would
sound the keynote of the administration
on the Philippine question.
Time paesed on and his speech was,
for some unknown reason, delayed. In
the meantime. Senator !x>dge. chairman
of the Philippine Commission, came for
ward with his carefully and ably pre
jwred speech, which the country at once
recognized as having received it* inspira
tion from the White. House. Later on
Senator Spooner selected an inopportune
period, when public attention was drifting
in another channel, to deliver his long
expected speech, sustaining the admin
istration’s policy in the Philippines. Tn
spite of the logical, instructive, and at
tractive assembling of argument in sup
port of the expansion policy of the ad
ministration. his speech failed to attract
the attention it probably deserved The
speech was. in a measure, etale, and nat
urally fell flat in circles where It was
expected to arouse the greatest enthu
fourfeny nml Jealousy.
Some of Spooner’*! friends said that sen
atorial courtesy and personal Jealousies
caused tho wirhholding of the Spooner
■peeeh to enable Senator Lodge to taka
the leadership in the Philippine <Hf< us-
Bjon from an administration standpoint.
A* that time, a few of Senator Spooner's
Intimate friends fancied that they oh.
served a growing coldness between the
President and his former confidant from
"Wisconsin. Senator Spooner was not
seen at the White Houe as frequently
as on former occasions, and more than
once when grave tjueetions of state were
almost dally discussed at the White
House, Senator Sjjooner reluctantly con
fessed that he had not been Invited to
share in the conferences with the Pres
ident on certain subjects then pending.
About the same time it was generally
understood in administration circles that
Senator Spooner would lea delegate to
the Philadelphia Convention, find as he is
unquestionably one of the most eloquent
speakers in the Republican ranks, he was
designated to plaJe Mr. McKinley’s nome
before the convention for renomination.
Without any explanation from 'Senator
Spooner or the friends of the administra
tion the programme was suddenly chang
ed. Senator Spooner remained away from
the convention and Senator Forakcr was
chosen to place President McKinley’s
name In nomination.
At the time, these incidents were over
looked, because of the. pressure of other
questions upon the public attention. It is
now recalled, however, that eince the de
livery of his speech on the Philippine
question Senator S|ooner has scarcely
been heard of in the political family
which surrounds President McKinley.
There has been no (brnmuit from Senator
Biooner on the result of the Philadelphia
Convention, no forecast from him as to
the probable outcome of the campaign,
and, to cap the climax, he briefly but em
phatically takes himself out of the sena
torial contest by announcing that he has
no desire to be a candidate for senatorial
In the absence of any definite statement
from Senator Spoon* r ou the subject, or
any one authorized to speak for the ad
ministration. there Is a very strong pre
sumption in political circles that the re
lations between the President and Senator
Spooner have heeome strained almost to
the breaking-off point by circumstances
yet to be explained.
The Republican party cannot afford to
lose from its ranks many men of the same
caliber as Senator Spooner. It may not he
that he is sulking because of some offence
real or imagined, committed against him
by the administration. It is possible that
he has taken alarm by the reports so
freely circulated in Wisconsin that the
German vote, which is very' large in that

*t.ite. and has heretofore been given al
most entirely to the Republican ticket in
ad national contests, threatens to revolt
against McKinleyism in the coming cam
paign. As the German element exercises
the lonrro'.ling influence in Wisconsin, it
is fair to assume that if Senator Spooner
believed the Germans are opj>o i to th<
re-election of 'McKinley, there is probably
a personal us well as a political motive in
Senator Si*ooner’s profound silence on po
litical issues and h:s recent and surpris
ing announcement that he will not be a
candidate for re-election to the Senate.
Peach Shipper* Not Satlafled— Cotton
Seed Meal for Germany.
Amcricus, Ga., July 29 —U would appear
that the fruit shippers nt this point had
suffered not a little at the hands of com
mission men, to whom they have consign
ed peaches. One who recently shipped
1,000 crates of fine fruit has received re
mittance averaging 6 cents per crate. An
other who shipped a carload of fine El
bertas is asked to remit SIOO to cover
freight, the shipment bringing only $127,
while the freight was $287, according to
the statement of the commission man.
Local men think they have been badly
Local warehousemen look for the first
new bale of cotton this week, unless rain
prevents picking. General rains have
fallen here for three days, and if con
tinued will injure cotton somewhat.
The Amcricus Oil Company has just
made a shipment of 825 tons of cotton
seed meal to Germany, the shipment net
ting a good price. It was sent via Savan
nah, and the cars made up a solid freight
train. It is quite probable that the Amer
icus mill will make other large shipments
of this product, as great quantities of
the meal are made here annually.
Farmers and merchants here are much
interested in the movement to obtain bet
ter prices for cotton, as proposed by the
Cotton Growers* Protective Association,
and the large meeting here yesterday, at
which addresses were made by Hon. Pope
Brown and President Harvie Jordan of
the state association, will result in a
very strong local organization. Rankers,
warehousemen, farmers and merchants
will thus stand together.

SPOItT TO TEST A METTLE.
Danger* That Face Moose Hunters
In the W oods of Maine.
From Forest and Stream.
There is no better test of what there is
of a man than to strip him of the conven
tionalities and accessories of civilization
and leave him to his own resources in the
heart of a wilderness like that of Maine.
Some of those whom Ihe world esteems
great and wise would starve forthwith,
while many of those who live and die un
known to fame would “wax and grow
fat." There is one denizen of the Maine
woods that stands pre-eminent to all
others which claim the attention of sports
men—pre-eminent in size, pre-eminent in
the uncouth grandeur of his gigantic bulk,
pre-eminent in the time, patience, labor
and skill involved in his capture, and pre
eminent in power to thrill the steadiest
nerves and cause the blood to flow in
quick, throbbing beats like quicksilver in
The sportsman who has not confronted a

an experience which is well worth the
best year of his life. I speak advisedly,

can, a huge bundle of muscular power,
reared on great stilt-like legs to a height
of seven feet, with bristling mane and
eyes which gleam viciously from be
neath broad, massive antlers which sway
with the huge head eight to ten feet
above the ground.
Imagine yourself standing, if you have
strength to stand, in front of this fright
ful apparition, and only a few yards dis
tant, with the knowledge that if you don’t
kill him he will very likely kill you, your
heart throbbing no painfully that your
ears fairly ache with its pulsation, the
blood racing through your veins like mol
ten lead, the sweat starting from every
pore in your skin, while your brain labors
in vain to regain control of the wild tu
mult which possesses you. Imagine all
this, if you ran, and then multiply the
sensations which It calls up by two or
three million times, more or less, and you
will have a result which approaches the
reality in magnitude. The man who wends
every bullet straight to the mark under
such conditions as these should be ex
cused if he brags a little about it after
ward. He should also be excused if he
does some very foolish things when he
sees the awe-inspiring monster collapse
I under the paralyzing shocks of the we’l
directed bullets—i. e.. dropping his rifle
and trying to hug himself, attempting to
turn somersaults which only land him
on his head, trying to ehout the great
news to everybody within a hundred
miles and only succeeding In making a
poor little squeak somewhere down In his

THE DEATH OF A COWARD.
From the Pa.l Mall Gazette.
The boy leaned against the bulwark
rails, watching the lights as they cane*
up one by cne tn the coast. The plunging
of the ship still made his head te 1. an 1
he was w tk fiom want of food. H** seem

whole soul was filled with a dumb an 1
impotent protest against his fate aed the
life before him. Old Capt. Malcolm had

only son to sea to hive some pluck j

The shi'.’s doctor came out of the sa

girnsh figure, wrapped in a heavy cioak.
She turned at the ladder wl ich led to the j
lower and ck, and was about to g} back,
when her eyes fell on the boy. She had
not ced him once or twice before, and his
white face and lonely air roused the wo- j
manly sympa hy in her She toil Ti and him i
lightly on the shoulder and -aid: "you ar
lcavirg home, like me,”
“Yfs, ma'am,” he replied.
“You must feel lonely.” she said, “but
you will scon be bark, and then every one
will think as much of you."
Her voice had something caressing and
inviting about it; and .“O his confidence,
over-corning his shyness and reserve,
brokf* bounds. He told her everything—
how he would hate this life how all fi led
him witli fear and disgust, the cold and

self. It Is net always those who fear the
least that are bravest in the end. When
the time comes, I am sure you will do
In a few minutes the second mate pass
ed along the deck and told the boy to go
below. Then all was quiet.
A few hours later the Pride of Asia was
steaming at “slow.” with her whistle go
ing every few minutes. The channel fog
girt the ship like a shroud. No tempest
or rork-ltound shore gives the anxiety that
a fog in this waterway of the nation does.
Danger is imminent everywhere and the
most careful seamanship is no guarantee
of safety. So it is row. A hoarse shout
came from the man on the lookout. The
captain sprang to the telegraph, and as
“full speed astern” rang out, a large sail- |
ing ship took form in the fog, and in a
few' seconds crashed into the steamer in :
front of the bridge.
The Pride of Asia shook from stem to i
stem, heeled over to the starboard, and
then began to forge ahead, while the other
went pounding along her side, wrenching
the port boats from her davits and stav
ing them in with her bowsprit. Then she
passed away as a ghost in the fog.
The Pride of Asia had met her death
wound. At once all was noise and confu
sion. The emigrants came pouring tip on
deck.screaming and shouting with terror.
Some of the sailors rushed to clear the
boats, but a sharp order from the captain
In a few seconds the captain had de
cided on his course. The remaining boats
would not carry 150 people. There were
more than twice that number on board.
On the other hand, the land was about
three miles off, and a sandy and protected
beach meant safety. But could it be
done with that hole in her side? He would
try. He changed his course, rang “Full
speed ahead,’’ and shouted to the mate:
“Go down and shut the for-ard bulkhead,
The mate ran forward, and with the help
of the carpenter tore off part of the hatch
covering and sprang to the ladder. As
he climbed down young Malcolm peered
aimlessly over the hatch.
“Bring down a lantern,” cried the mate,
and Malcolm, galvanized into activity by

and clambered down into the hold.
The mate ran toward the iron door in
the bulkhead, w’hloh had been left open,
nnd pushed it to.
“The light here—quick!"
And the hoy brought it.
“Blast thftfn! —oh, blast them!” roared
the mate. “They’ve put the bolts on the
wrong side. In five minutes we’ll all bo
in kingdom come.”
He stumbled for the ladder, and Mal
colm followed, wild with terror. Yea,
every one would he drowned, and he, too,
with the cruel, cold water sucking him
down. He dropped the lantern and be
gan to pull hinuself up the ladder.
Suddenly he stopped. An idea had been
born in his brain; a hideous, unthinkable
thought—the door could be dosed from
the other side. He hung limply on the
ladder, and in his mind raged a tornado
Oh, to he out of this awful ship, safe
once again at home! Hut the mate, had
said that all were los. That meant him,
too. And if only that door were shut,
all could be saved. Great beads of sweat
broke out on his forehead. He groaned i
and writhed about like one on the rack.
Then he began 10 descend slowly. lie

clung to the ladder like a drowning man
to a rope. He could never let go. Why
was he not going up the ladder? There
were boats left. He had seen that. He
could fight for a place and be saved. He
was so young, not old, like the mate and
captain. They must give him place.
All at once he loosened his hold and ran
blindly for the door. On the way he trip
ped and fell heavily on his hands and face,
cutting and bruising them. He lay half
stunned for n minute, moaning from the
pain, then raised himself and crawled the
rest of the way. He passed through the
door and with feverish haste shot the
great iron bolts. The boy was alone In
his tomb. He leaned against the bulk
head, sick, sick to death. Why had he
done this? He did not know They would
be saved now. but he—O! God! no more
light or life for him! His i>oor dry lips
moved convulsively, and his hands beat
aimlessly on the iron wall. He would go
back. Hope returned with a rush. He
would die in the open —with others around
him. It must !*• good to die thus, not in
his hell of darkness and dcsolateness. He

Then, with a low moan, he cast himself

ing his head against the iron, that death
might come quickly. He plunged bemath

The Captain stood on ihe bridge, a fig

port that a great army of toads is hop

a mile, in length. The dam has been

At the present rate of progress the toads

“For over twenty years 1 was the vic
tim of a most intolerable Aching, which
made my nights miserable and my days
periods of indescribable torture. During
this time I consulted physicians of the
greatest celebrity in all the principal
cities of the world atul submitted to ev
ery known treatment, medical, surgical
and electrical, without benefit. Finally,
at the suggestion of Dr. J. B. Read, I
went to Suwanec Springs, and after a
stay there of only three WVrks I am now
completely cured of a malady w-hich has
been to me a life-long curse. From the
remarkable success attending my case, I
feel confident that these springs will cure
any case cf a similar kind, if the sufferer
will only drink freely of the water. I
hope that this may meet the eye of other
sufferers, and that they may have the
same good fortune which has attended me
in at lest finding the ‘healing spring’ for
one of the most annoying conditions to
which flesh is heir.”
