In buying up German newspapers that

The Republicans will have to have a pret
ty full treasury if they undertake to
silence hostile German newspapers by
means of money. There are plenty of
German newspaper proprietors who would
be glad, in all probability, to sell out at
a good profit. But if there were a Ger- I

A MISTAKEN CONTEMPORARY.
The Charleston News and Courier dis
cusses Savannah’s ordinance, requiring
crews of vessels at ber wharves to sleep
ashore during August, September and Oc
tober. Just as if Savannah, instead of
Charleston, Were trying to get the naval
station away from Port Royal. Savannah
is making no effort to get the station.
She is rather anxious that it shall re
main at Port Royal. This Charleston
knows very well. We cannot understand
therefore the motive that causes the News
and Courier to give so much of its val
uable editorial space to the ordinance
which requires crews of vessels at this
port to sleep ashore during three months
of the year. Has the News and Courier
some particular spite against Savannah?
It would seem so, from the fact that It is
continually falling attention to things
which it seems to think will Injure her.
If Savannah were trying to get the naval
station, or had any prospect of getting It
under the recent act of Congress, we could
understand the motive of the News and
Perhaps It Is trying to prevent a helping
hand being extended to Port Royal? It
Is true that Savannah has some sympathy
for Port Royal In this matter of the re
moval of the station, and something has
been said to the effect that the commission
appointed to report on the question of the
advantages of Charleston, as a place for
the station, ought to Inquire whether
Charleston has a plentiful supply of good
Very little comment has been made on
Charleston's water supply because there
has been no desire to Injure that city
In any way. As far as we know the com
mlesion's attention has not yet been call
ed to the reports of the Marine Hospital
Service, published on July 27 last. In a
report from Charleston, dated July 14, It
is stated that from May 1 to July 1 there
were 112 chse® of enteric fever In that
city .generally of a mild character. "They
were all Investigated,” says the report,
"by the city bacteriologist and gave Vi
dal's reaction. Active measures were at
once taken by the local health authori
ties, and with apparent success. It was
soon discovered that the infection was
derived from the water of the cisterns.”
According to the report eighty-five of the
cisterns were examined, and forty-four
percent, of them were found to be In
fected with typhoid bacillus.
We do not cal! attention to the fore
going report of the Marine Hospital Ser
vice for the purpose of getting It before
the Naval Commission, but simply to em
phasize the fact that Charleston's cistern
water is far more dangerous to the health
of that city than any malaria there may
be along Savannah's river front is to Sa
vannah's health. Savannah experiences
no trouble from the source against whlcfti
her ordinance guards, while the report
from which we have quoted Justifies the
suspicion that Charleston's health Is
menaced not only three months of the
year, but all the year around by her wa
ter supply. Is It In Charles'on's pro
gramme to ask for a government hospital
If she should succeed In getting the naval
The rare beauty of Miss Abigail Robert
son, of the state of New York, cannot
be questioned, without contempt to the
highest court of that state. She Is the
only woman living who has the distinc
tion of having her personal charm* af
firmed by a legal tribunal, especially one
of such eminence. In passing Judgment
In a case In Robertson had
sued a manufacturer for using her por
trait for advertising purposes, the learned
Judge said, In part: ‘‘She Is undoubtedly
a young woman of rare beauty, and this
she enjoys a* a private citizen." That
has gone Into the records, and will re
main good law until reversed by as high
or some higher authority—which It Is safe
to say will never be done.

seven months hence. All of the bottom Is
to be reconstructed, and new engines and

give the ship considerably more speed
than she had before. The reconstructed

THE MOBNING NEWS: SATURDAY; AUGUST 4. 1900.
A PLAC E POll Sl ftPLPS CAPITAL.
Our exports have now become so
i enormous and so greatly exceed our im
ports that It will not be many years
before there will be so much capital in
this country that it will puzzle financiers
to invest it profitably. It Is now said,
and the same thing has been said for
years, that it does not pay in this coun
try’ to put money in ships, because ships
do not earn as much as can be obtained
for money in other kinds of Investments,
but if the time Is approaching when in
vestors will be willing to take a very
small rate of interest, will they not be
willing to invest in ships? The proba
bility is they will. They would rather
have their money earning something
than to have it idle.
Assuming that such is the case, there is
no need of the proposed ship subsidy
legislation. By waiting a year or two
capital will be Invested in ship yards,
and the building of a sufficient number of
ships to do the carrying trade of the en
tire country will be begun.
It is true that it may be a long while
before American steamships can be run
as cheaply as are those of Great Britain
and some other nations, but in propor
tion as the population increases and the
country becomes crowded, the demand
for employment will Increase, and then it
will be possible for American ships to
compete successfully with those of any
other nation. There will be no need for
subsidies. If the subsidy plan should be
adopted it would be impossible practi
cally to get rid of it in half a century.
Even now there is work enough offering
to keep several more shipyards than we
have busy. All of our shipyards have
orders far ahead. It is worthy of notice
that the President of the Great North
ern Railway is of the opinion that ships
of the first-class can even now be built
and operated by Americans at a good
profit on the money invested in them.
His railway Is building great steamships
on the Pacific coast to be utilized In
trade with the far East. If they can be
built and operated on the Pacific coast
they can be on the Atlantic coast. It
would not be surprising if the problem
of establishing American lines of steam
ships to all of the leading ports of the
world should be solved before Congress
gets through talking about the plan for
subsidising steamship lines.
THE FEVER AT TAMPA.
No on of course can say what the out
come of the fever which has appeared at
Tampa will be—whether it will become
epidemic or will disappear after there
have been a few cases—but, as yet, there
Is nothing very alarming in the situation
there The Florida health officer has the
reputation of being a very efficient official,
and It is certain that every effort will be
made to prevent an epidemic and to con
fine the disease to Tampa.
Quarantine has been established against
Tampa by two or three cities, and other
cities are waiting for further develop
ments. If the impression gets abroad that
Tampa Is In for an epidemic of yellow
fever every place in which there exists
any apprehension of the disease will quar
antine against her.
Of the necessity for a general quaran
tine law administered by some central au
thority there Is no doubt. If only two or
three cases of yellow fever should appear
within the next few weeks In widely sep
arated places In the Southern states the
commerce of the entire South would be
practically tied up by quarantine regu
lations. It would be impossible for the
transportation lines to move their cars in
It will be known within a week or two
whether or not the fever at Tampa is
likely to become epidemic. There is no
panic there. The people do not seem to
have any apprehersion of an epidemic. If
the sanitary conditions are good It may
be that the efforts to stamp out the dis
ease will be successful.
A tI.OOO-MILE RACK.
Great Interest Is being manifested In
New York in the great ocean race which
will take place between four of the big
gest steamships afloat next week. They
are the Kaiser Wilhelm der Grosse of the
North German Lloyd I/lne, the Deutsch
land of the Hambwg-Amerlcan Line, the
New York of the American Line, and the
Oceanic of the White Star Line, the lat
ter ship being the biggest In the world.
These are about the fastest steamships
that have yet been built. They
fact ocean greyhounds. The Deutschland
has made the fastest time between New
York and a European port. It Is proba
ble that the New York Is the slowest of
the four, and yet she has made remark
ably good time. The Kaiser Wilhelm der
Grosse will start on Tuesday and the
other three will start on Wednesday. All
of them carry mall for London, and there
is considerable speculation as to which
ship's mall will reach that city first. The
supposition would naturally be that the
one that started twenty-four hours ahead
would deliver her mall first, but It seems
that the other ships have certain advan
tages In delivering the London mall which
have to be taken Into consideration.
But there is more interest In the time
that each will make than in the date on
which each will deliver her mall In Lon
don. The ships starting so nearly togeth
er it is probable that they will have
about the same weather conditions during
the entire trip. It seems to be the un
derstanding in steamship circles that each
ship will do her best. The talk Is that
the race will be a record-breaking one and
will be long remembered In steamship cir
cles. u ,

The Nashville American (Dem.) says:
"One reason the pension scandal goes on
and Increases In Infamy each year Is
that the people do not realize that it is
they who pay the bills. The usual phrase
Is: 'The government pays the pension
ers; the government is a rich concern
with unlimited money, and if It chooses
to be imposed, on, well and good. We are
not the losers.’ But what supports the
government Is the people of the United
States, the men that work, and a part
of their labor is taken from them by the
taxing power and given to the govern
ment. It may be done directly or indi
rectly, but It Is done. If the people would
appreciate the manner in which they
are robbed, they would elect no man to
Congress not favorable to cutting the
pension cancer to the bone. What a mag
nificent chance for some congressman to
make a reputation—to present facts and
figures, to picture the real conditions.”

of realizing that as a candidate for the

vice president of all the people and not of

rhetoric win not only do Justice to him

Hamlin Garland in a sketch of Stephen
Crane in the Saturday Evening Post says;
"When Crane came next day he brought
the first part of a war story w hich was at
that time without a name. Such mastery
of details of war was sufficiently startling
in a youth of 21 who had never smelled
any more carnage than a firecracker holds,
but the seeing was so keen, the phases so
graphic, so fresh, so newly coined, that
I dared not express my admiration.
"The next day I asked for the other half
of the novel. ’We must get this published
at once.' I said. ‘lt is a wonderful story.
A mysterious product for you to have
in hand. Where is the other part?’
"He looked very much embarrassed.
TPs in ''hock,'' he said, ’to the typewriter.’
“We all laughed, but it was serious
business to him.

room one time to find a rustic with one
of my bottles poring a thick dark liquid
into the hollow of h's hand. 'I guess you
don't mind if I use a little of your hair
He,’ he said, and promptly rubbed the
stuff into his hair. It was a varnish for
negatives, made to dry and harden very
rapidly, and before I could get that pic
ture taken, hurrying feverishly, he had to
go Out and get hi* head shaved. It Is
hard to believe how green' people can
really be In this age and generation un

through the rural districts of our fair
Webster'* Unlucky Drive.
One of Daniel Webster's favorite stories
of his early life had to do with a journey
from Sallfbury, his home, to Lebanon,
N. H., says the Youth's Companion. He
went with a neighbor lu an old-fashioned,
square-boxed pung-sleigh, which contain
ed several barrels of cider, to be sold by
the owner at Lebanon, It was a cold,
frosty morning, and the start was made
before sunrise. Daniel wore anew suit
of clothes and mittens, spun, woven,
dyed, and made by his mother's hands.
In the course of the morning they reach
ed a stream where the bridge had been
carried away by a recent flood, and was
lodged Just below the road. It was evi
dent that the stream must be crossed by
fording. The neighbor, with a look at
"You've got tight boot# on; suppose you
take the reins and drive.”
Daniel did as he was bid, while his com
panion Jumped out to walk across the
"I drove cautiously," said Mr. Webster,
"expecting a safe passage, when suddenly
the pung sank, and I found myself up to
the armpits In the icy water. The horse
plunged forward and reached the opposite
bank, and almost as quick as I am telling
It my clothes became a solid cake of ice.
"There was no house near, and I was In
danger of freezing to death soon unless
I was relieved. I Jumped out of the
sleigh and told the man to drive as fast
as he could. I took hold of the back of
the pung, and away we went. I often
came near falling, but managed to hold
on. and so by the rapid motion kept my
blood In circulation till we reached a
"I went In and asked the %dy of the
house If she would let me dry my clothes.
She put me Into a room where there was
a bed and hung my clothes by the fire.
It was then apparent that the contents of
my mother's dye pot were on my body as
twell as on my domes."

—From the army recruiting stations in
Chicago there has been gathered a for

Strictly -peaking, a “shavetail” is a ''grif

is known even more widely as a "ring

—They have bright Tollcemen in Kan

town marshal and told him that Steve
Ritsterir was himiing for him (Bell) with
the view of giving him a licking. While
the men were still talking Riesterer came
up and knocked B 11 down and adminis

interfere. Which shows that often we wet
without knowing of what we are wet ing.
—You cannot always believe in the gen

greatly agitated over the difficulty of de

“L’Ami du Peuple.” whjch was stained
v lth the blood of Marat when the revo u

Charlotte Corday. So far seven" copies
have turned up, all solemnly accredited
and all bearing the blood stain.
—Cape Nome may be a swindle as
charged, but there is no doubt of the
truth of the report that rich placers havo

to attract more attention to the rich min

Numerous islands constitute the archi

profitable piaoers, to S3y nothing of the
quartz discoveries that may yet be found.
—Paderewski dees not have to depend
upon piano-pounding for his support. A
letter received in Chicago says that the
artist derives good income from Ihe
wine, fruit and vegetables produced on
his estate at Morges. Switzerland. The
orchard contains 5,000 cherry trees, from
the product of which some excel eot
kirseh is distilled, and the vegetable gar

—The steamship Olbla arrived at New
Orleans with a number of Italian Immi
grants, and the owners are out a good deal
of money on the cruise. Twetfty-five pas
sengers came under contract and these
must be taken back to Europe, after lying
a week at New Orleans awaiting exami
nation. Three Jumped overboard and es
caped to shore and for each of these the
company must pay <2OO or <3OO. On top
of all this the owners were fined <2,000 for
carrying more passengers than the law
allows. Still more, the Olbia carried a
large quantity of fruit, and most of it was
spoiled while the steamer lay in midstream
under a boiling sun.
—According to Marshall Halstead. Con
sul of the United States at Birmingham,
a fetv of the main thoroughfares of Lon
don will soon be lighted by electricity,
some poles having already been put into
position, the success of the Piccadilly
lighting having warranted an extension.
Birmingham is still lighted by gas, but
the small electric-lighting company in
that city was taken under the municipal
wing on Jan. 1, and it is thought some
thing may be done there. Cork is one
of the smallest towns with electric ser
vice, and it is claimed that it is as cheap
there as in any city. The cost is nine
cents per unit for the first two hours
of use each day, and two cents per hour
thereafter. A unit means the burning of

—lt I* a singular fact remarked upon by
the Inhabitants of newspaper office® that
the cockroaches, once so numerous in
such places, have almost disappeared.
Time was when the little brown pests
fairly overran the homes of the press,
Not only did they exist by thousands in
the composing room, but they also got
down into the editorial quarters. Observ
ing printers say that the disappearance
of the cockroach began with the introduc
tion of typesetting machines. This is be
lieved to be true, for in the big city offices
they have become scarcer and scarcer
ever since abottt 1888. Now one Is seldom
seen there. Whether the Insect disap

there was something on the moveable type
which gave him sustenance Is not known,
but he is done, and there are few to re
gret his departure.

—Beldom is it that a member of one of
the monastic of conventual orders ever
become* a party to a lawsuit, especially In
the role of the plaintiff. A tribunal In
Paris has Just decided the suit of Mme.
Letestu, a former nun. against the Sisters
of Notre Dame, where she was a teacher.
She asked to be allowed to leave the con
vent. While going to the Archbishop at
his request to tell why she was leaving
she fell from a street car and dislocated
her shoulder. She was taken back to the
convent and treated. As. however, she
had not been definitely admitted to the
order, the community decided she had no
right to continue her functions. She,
therefore, had to leave the convent. As,
however, In spite of the request she had
made to the Archbishop to leave, she now
desires to remain in the convent, she sued
the Mother Superior as responsible for the
accident which happened to her and for
breach of contract.
