2 SPOONER NOT IN FAVOR. BREACH BETWEEN \VISCO\SI\ MAN AND Till-: ADNIIMSTHATIOBI. Slinonrr Eipprl<‘<l to Bo the Mouth piece of the Administration, bnt 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 for Re-election. 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 from Wisconsin. 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 siasm. 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 honors again. 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 Tonight Just before retirlnc, If your liver Is sluggish, out of tune and you feel dull, bilious, constipated, take a dose of Hood’s Pills And you 11 be all right in the looming. *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. AMERICAS AFFAIRS. 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 victimized. 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. The Hotel Allen, closed for a year, will he reopened Wednesday under the man agement of George H. Fields. J. If. H A MILTON IS MISSING. Fort Vnllcr Public Would Like to Knorr Where He I*. Fort Valley, Ga., Jub29.— A curious pub lic hereabout is anxious to know the whereabouts and condition of one J. H. Hamilton, a traveling medicine man. Some weeks ago he was on the streets of this place vending his wares from a wagon. He was an interesting talker and did good business. On one occasion he was egged by the crowd and left here for Perry, where he was arrested for practicing with out license. He gave bond. He visited Vienna, where he procured drugs enough to kill any man. Having previously load ed up on wine. Id* condition was such as to lead hie friends to believe that he ha<; suicided or met with accident or foul piay of some kind. He left, carrying no bag gage, even leaving his watch and coat, vest and hat. He had some $209 in money. A search has been instituted for tho missing man. hut not the slightest track, trace or tiding can be discovered. ATTACKED B\ (HAZY NEGRO. Itnrglnr nobbed Gen. Wade Hamp ton While He Slept. Columbia, S. C., July 29.—1n Camden to-day. Isaa<- Mcljaughlin stridently went crazy and attacked H. I. Depass. whom he met on the street. Mr. Depass ran into a store and securing a baseball bat hit the negro several ticks on the head. The ne gro became bo violent that it too-k four or five men to carry him off. A burglar broke into the home of Gen. Hampton last night, entered the room where the aged statesman was sleeping and abstracted ten dollars from the pock ets of his clothing without awakening him. Gen. Hampton, who has been quite unwell for oorm* w'eeks. is improving. Fnther and Child Drowned. Columbia, fi. C., rfuly 39.—John K. James took his 5-year-old son row-lug on the lake at Pelzer to-day. The child lost his bal ance and fell in. the water. Jpmes jumped after and caught the child, but could not swim to shore. When the body of the father was recovered, he was clasping the child in hi arms. 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 veins. The sportsman who has not confronted a bull moos* 4 In his native wilds has missed an experience which is well worth the best year of his life. I speak advisedly, for 1 have been there. Imagine, if you 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 throat, trying—but let us drop the curtain. The ethics of sportsmanship forbid me to disclose all the absurd things oven the most sedate and dignified of our craft will do on such an occasion. —Miss Lillie Ray. daughter of Daniel A. Ray, recently made United States Marshal of Hawaii, has been appointed Deputy Marshal to her father* THE MORNING NEWS: MONDAY. JULY 30. 1900. 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 ed altogether apart from stir and life that 3UO emigrants on board created. His whole soul was filled with a dumb an 1 impotent protest against his fate aed the life before him. Old Capt. Malcolm had shewn lit le wi doni when he s nt his only son to sea to hive some pluck j knocked info him. The shi'.’s doctor came out of the sa b on in the p op to go his even ng round below. him was his wife, a si gut, 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 darkness, the chaff and horseplay of nis fedlow-apprentice , the indifference of everyone around him. He told how impos sible, it was to come up to his father’s standa* and. h< w he f It h< was a b rn coward and that he would always be one, shrinking instinctively from the danger and excitement that holder natures took pleasure in. She listened sympathetically. Her hand had patted him once or twice, and encour aged h’m to go on When he ended. said: “You must no be too hard rn your 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 your duty.” 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 stopped them. 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, Mr. Jones.” 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 seized a lantern from the. alleyways 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 of conflict. 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 stopped again on the last rung. He 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 upshot one bolt and fumbled for the other. Then, with a low moan, he cast himself from it. driving his teeth into his lips In Ills agony. It was not to be. He was too great n coward to live. He could only die. He would pray. Hut he could think of noth ing-nothing but the “This night when I lie down to sleep” he had learned at his mother’s knee. To sleep—oh. he would sleep long! There was to be no waking this time. How' the water was creeping up! Long shuddering tits shook his frame #s he felt the icy fingers of death rising inch by inch. He screamed and raved, dash ing his head against the iron, that death might come quickly. He plunged bemath the water, only to come up again, light- Stomach Health means health in every part of the body. Weak digestion will ups* t the nerves, the blood, the liver, the kidneys.

The laud could never be reached with water pouring like a tor rent into the forward hold. He cursed his negligence in overlooking such a frightful blunder. It was going to cost 2**> lives, and he must not be among the saved. The Pride of Asia was getting low in the wra tcr, but he could not understand why ehe was not sinking more by the bow. She was vibrating from the engines, pushed to their highest pressure, for the firemen stuck gallantly to their posts. Five min utes went, and ten. and then, with a sud den shock, ehe took ground, ami all were sate. Next morning young Malcolm was miss ing. and the sorrowful news was sent to his father. A week afterward, divers entered th* forward hold, and found to their as tonisfrmt nt, that the bulkhead door, which they had expected to find open, was closed. They forced it open, and against it was floating the body of a boy. Old Capt. Malcolm comes often to the little graveyard by the sea. In it stands a cross on which are inscribed the words, “Here lies a Hero.” TOADS HOPPING TO DENVER. Great Army Marching; Fifty Mile* to Gneen Pity of Plain*. From the New York Press. Denver, July 27.—Local scientists are puzzled over a well authenticated re port that a great army of toads is hop ping tow’ard Denver from the Castle wood dam, fifty mile? south. The advancing column is over twenty feet wide and fully a mile, in length. The dam has been leaking for months, and the fall of water in the reservoir is the only reason given the strange migration of the toads. At the present rate of progress the toads will be here in obo.u five days. Hundreds die along the road ,but the survivors hop over the d?ad and continue their steady inarch toward the city. Citizens will go out to-morrow to study the phenomenon. 41 MINUTES WITH ARM IN AIR. Mi** Winnie 11 Irk 1 neon Swims While Holding I p nn I nihrelln. From the New York Press. Southport, Me.. July 27.—Miss Vinnie Higginson, a society woman of Boston, chatieneged by n man friend to swim for for'y minutes while holding an open um brella over her head with one hand, made a wager and won it to-day by swimming for forty-one minutes under the condi tions named, in Southport. At the end of her performance Miss Higginson was perfectly fresh and offered to repent the feat. Her challenger gen erously declined to hold the fair swimmer to her proposal. The feat surpassed that of Miss Win terhalter of Milwaukee, who recently won a wager to swim thirty minutes under these conditions. ItailroHd Fortune*. From the New York Press. Outside cf a few vast fortunes made in mining and commerce we must look to the railroads for the upbuilding of our aristocracy of wealth. More men have grown big rich through railway corpora tions than by any other know process of acquiring wealth. Joy Gould left a fortune of $80,000,000, which he made by manipulating railroads, not by managing them. Commodore Van derbilt left $100,000,000. ail made In rail roads. Over $8.",000,000 of this went to j his son. William H., who left nearly $200.- 000,000. the increase made in railroads. Cornelius IT left between $80,000,000 and $100,000,000, enlarging his patrimony by railroads. William Washington Kissam Vanderbilt haw made numerous million* in the same wav. George Gould inher ited $16,000,000, and the additional $15,000,- ■XX> of hls fortune was made in railroads. Uncle Colds Pacific Huntington is said to be worth $.'0,000,000; he made it mostly in railroads. Calvin 8. Price made a handsome for tune by railroad manipulation. The great fortune of Mr. J. P. Morgan was made largely by railroad reorganizations. Street railroads come under this heading. Look at the immense fortunes of William C. Whitney, the Wideners, Elkinses, Bradys, Ryans. Laws, Charles T. Yerkes and the magnates in the larger cities of the South and West. R. T. Wilson made the bulk of his fortune in railroads. The Dela ware. Lackawanna and Western was Sam dlcan'e plaything. James J. Hill is worth millions. President Cassatt is worth $lO.- 000,000—all made out of the Pennsylvania Railroad. Senator Depew may lay his million to tho credit of the New York Central. The Iceland Stanford fortune was largely made out of railroads. The Croker mil lions came from railroads. The millions of Mrs. Oelrichs and Mrs. William K. Vanderbilt, Jr . came largely from rail roads Stuyvesant Fish’s handsome com petency came from railroads. The for tune of Senator Eugene Hale came through his wife from Zach Chandler’s railroad Investments and manipulation. Col. John Hay. Secretary of State, is a millionaire through his wife, whose for tune time from the greatest railroad man jof his time—her father, Amnsa Stone. The millions of the Winans family came from railroads. United States Senator Jtin is worth $25,000,000; all came from rail roads and their allies—steamboats. Sena tor Sewell Is one of the millionaires of •he upper house; his fortune came from railroads. The list might be extended to fiill a col umn. I have jotted down a few brilliant examples at random. Another comes to mind—the late John T. Blair, bqjieved to have left nearly $100,000,000. This vast ao cumulation came from railroads. It is strange that the men who make millions out of railroads are never more stockhold ers. They are presidents, directors, chair men of the hoards, etc. The Best Prescription for Malaria, j Chills and Fever, is a bottle of Grova’a Tasteless Chill Tonic.

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.
