Another evidence of England’s decadence

SPANIARDS WIST STAND ASIDE.
It looks very much as If those who
were the leaders In the revolution in
Cuba are afraid they will not. af
ter all, be put in control of the Island
w hen the time for choosing a government
comes. The letter of Gen. Maximo Gomez,
published in our dispatches yesterday,
Indicates the existence of this fear. In
his letter he says the coming constitu
tional convention should consist wholly
of genuine revolutionists, and that no
body should be allowed to enter the con
vention who formerly defamed the revo
lution. “Let the Spaniards stand aside,”
ho says, "until all can enter equal
through the gates of the republic.”
Some of tfco ablest men of Cuba were
not In sympathy with the revolution. In
fact, many of the largest property own
ers were against It. They are prepared
now, however, to do everything in their
power to advance the interests of Cuba.
They have a great dtal at stake, and iu
legislative matters would naturally Ire
conservative. The revolutionary cle
ment, however, does not trust them fully.
According to its view there might be
danger that these property owners would
endeavor to open a way for annexing the
island to the United States.
In the President's proclamation piovid
ing for the constitutional convention, one
section defines the object of the conven
tion as being "to frame and adopt a
constitution for the people of Cuba, and.
as a part thereof, to provide for and
agree with the government of the United
States upon the relations between that
government and the government of
Against this portion of the proclama
tion the President has already received
a very strong protest from some of the
leading men of the revolutionary ele
ment. The basis of this protest is clear
ly the fear that the convention may be
composed of men who will fix the rela
tions between the United States and
Cuba so that annexation will be an
Some of the signers of this protest say
that if the convention meets with authori
ty to fix relations between Cuba and the
United States they will leave the con
vention. if they are members of it. It Is
probably that they speak for the revo
lutionary element. This element Is de
teimined, apparently, to control the con
vention, and to make a constitution in
every respect satisfactory to itself. It
takes the position that it inaugurated
the revolution which resulted in separ
ating the island from Spain, and that
therefore it should be entrusted with the
government when Independence is at
It is probable that at the bottom of
the whole matter is the question of bur.
dening the island with a big debt to pay
the claims of the soldiers of the revolu
tion. If the revolutionary element gets
control it may be reasonably expected
that it will issue bonds to pay the claims
of all of those who took part In the revo
lution. These claims might, and perhaps
would, amount to $100,000,000. If the prop
erty holding element gets control of the
convention It is safe to say that the
claims will be kept within a very rea
Will the President respond favorably
to the protest and change his proclama

section was no doubt put Into It for a
purpose, and after careful consideration.

FLORIDA'S SId’BI'AIH COURT.
If what was stated yesterday in the
City Court of this city, during the trial
of a railroad case, is true, and we have
no reason to doubt its truth, Florida needs
additional judges on her Supreme Court
The case? in question was e damage suit
against the Savannah, Florida and West
ern Railway. The accident for which
damages were claimed occurred in Florida
and the plaintiffs are citizens of that
state. The railroad can be sued in that
state just as well as In thlß. For several
reasons the case ought to have been tried
In that state, one of them being the cost
of bringing witnesses to this state,
and another being that It is
hardly just to take up the time of the
courts of this state with cases which
ought to be tried in Florida.
The statement In question was that the
case was brought in this county because
it was likely to go to the Supreme Court
whatever the finding of the jury might
be, and that the Florida Supreme Court
was so far behind with its docket that
there was little probability of getting a
decision from it in less than five or six
No doubt the Florida Supreme Court is
overworked. It has more to do than it
ought to have. It cannot keep up with
the business that is brought before it.
The result, doubtless, la that In many
cases the delay in getting a decision
amounts almost to a denial of justice.
In most of the Southern states the
judges of all of the courts are overworked
and underpaid. The Supreme courts have
more t'ases brought before them than
they can do Justice to. It Is not surpris
ing therefore that they get years behind
It Is false economy to put more work on
judges than they can do well and to pay
them salaries far below what they would
be able to earn tn the practice of their
profession. It Is difficult to make legisla
tures understand, however, that it would
pay the people to deal more liberally with

Is out In some recent scathing comments
upon the general character and composi

Mr. Page concludes with the assertion

believes the 50,000,000 Americans will sus

not likely that Mr. Page's finger of scorn

MONEY OR TERRITORY?
The United States are the only Power
which has suffered by the attack which
China made upon the legations at her
capital that do not want to take indemnity
in territory—at least that is the presump
tion. It Is said, of course, that England
and Japan are against the dismemberment
of the Chinese empire, but it is noticeable
that England has already landed troops at
Shanghai so as to be ready to grab the
rich valley of which that city is the port,
and there is no doubt that there are sec
tions of China that Japan would like to
h:.ve and would willingly take. But If
the United States refuse to accept terri
tory in what will they get their indemni
It is a well-known fact that China has
no money. Within the last few years she
has borrowed about $500,000,000 from Eu
rope, but she cannot borrow any more—at
least until she has a far more stable and
reliable government than she has at pres
ent. Indeed, it is doubtful if financiers
in any part of the world would lend her
money now. There is no certainty that
she will be able to prevent her govern
ment from being overthrown and tier
territory from being distributed among
the Powers which have invaded her.
If the United States are not willing to
accept territory and cannot gel money
how will they get compensation for the
lives of their citizens killed while defend
ing the legation in Pekin, and for the ex
penses of the relief army? This is now an
interesting question. We have been blam
ing England, Germany and Russia for
their eagerness to get hold of Chinese ter
ritory—the most desirable parts of the
empire—but il seems they have been look
ing out for their indemnity. From pres
ent indications the outlook for the United
States getting indemnity of any kind is
not very promising.
The American people want their army
withdrawn from China at once. No
doubt that course is the one which
ought to be pursued, even if by pursuing
it the chance of getting indemnity would
be lessened. To remain on Chinese soil
and become entangled with European
Powers might eventually cost a great deal
more than the amount of the indemnity
likely to be obtained from the Chinese
CHARLESTON’S GREAT NEED,
We do not see anything in. the Charles
ton News and Courier as to the effect the
long drought is having on that city's wa
ter supply, but the reports which reach
us from other sources lead us to suspect
that Charlestonians ore in no danger of
injuring themselves this hot weather by
drinking too much water, except when
the trains pass through with well-tilled
water c'oolers. Cisterns do pretty well
as long as the rains come frequently, but
they get mighty low when there is a
drought, and cistern water from well
nigh exhausted cisterns is not the most
wholesome in the world. Charleston’s ar
tesian water, os is well known, is not the
kind that makes one feel grateful on a
hot day. We have no doubt that those
Charlestonians who have had a taste of
Savannah's art'esian water have wished
themselves in this city a thousand times
since the present hot end dry
spell of weather began, for it is
about the best water there is in
the country. We are sure that
Charleston would stand a much better
chance of getting the coveted naval sta
tion if she had an ample supply of good
ROOSEVELT ON THE STUMP.
Gov. Roosevelt has been having a long
talk with the President on the political
situation. It is not improbable that the
President invited him to Washington in
order to give him a little advice before he
starts out on the great stumping tour in
the West and Northwest which has been
so extensively advertised.
There is no doubt that he needs a good
deal of advice. The speech he made re
cently at St. Paul, Minn., does not ap
pear to have done the Republican ticket
any good. He said things that seem to
have embittered a good many Gold Dem
ocrats that might have voted the McKin
ley-Roosevelt ticket. The attacks on him
for that speech have been so general and
so hitter that he has been compelled to
write several letters of explanation. He
wrote one to a Rough Rider friend In Ala
bama. and another to Gen. Palmer of Illi
nois. In the Rough Rider letter he practi
cally denied that he said the things
attributed to him, and in the Palmer let
ter he virtually admitted that he said
them, but claimed that a meaning had
been given to them different from that
which he intended.
That he is a reckless speaker on the
stump there is no doubt. A man who has
to write explanations of his speeches can
not do his party a great deal of good. It
is a safe prediction that Gov. Roosevelt,
on the stump, will do his party a great
deal more harm than he will do it good.
If the truth could be known it would ap
pear, probably, that the President and the
Republican manage™ would be glad if he
would stop making speeches during the
campaign and would agree to submit its
political articles intended for the newspa
pers to Mr. Hanna.

There is a division of opinion among
members of the Senate who have been in
terviewed with reference to whether the
American troops in Uhina should be
brought back, now’ that the ministers
hove been rescued, or should be allowed
to remain there for other*purpo.-es which
hi present seem to be shrouded in mys
tery. Senator Hacon of Georgia takes the
view’ that if our legation is tufe. our army
should be withdrawn from Chin a-s speed
ily as possible, and the question of in
demnity left to diplomatic negotiation.
The majority of the senators interview
ed. both Democratic and Repub
lican, agree with this view, though
some think that we should remain
and aid in carrying out the pro
gramme of the Powers looking to restor
ing order. The interviews indicate clear
ly that the question is not o party one,
widely divergent opinions being express
♦■d by members of the same party. The
weight of opinion, however is in the di
rection which Senator Bacon very prop
erly suggests, since the American troops
are not in China for the purpose of mak
ing war upon that country.

Of the effect of the Chinese trouble on
cotton manufacturing, the Columbia
Stale (Dem.) says: "It is, of course, ab
surd to claim that a continuance of war
or insurrection in China will cripple the
cotton manufacturing Industry of the
South, for our exports to that country
have not amounted to 10 per cent, of the
values of our textile products. Neverthe
less, it is a very serious matter for a num
ber of mills which have been running ex
clusively on goods for the Asian trade,
and the largest of these are in South
Carolina. An official of the Southern Rail
way Informs us that the Chinese crisis
has had the effect of decreasing very
heavily the shipments of cottton cloth
from this state over the lines of his sys
tem. Enormous quantities of these export
goods, he says, are piled up at the mills,
the terminals of the Pacific railways ore
blocked with them and at Shanghai the
accumulations caused by the arrest in
transit of goods destined for the interior
are such that the wharves are crowded
with tarpaulin-coveted bales.”

President John Quincy Adams once as

the Chicago Daily News, William Morris

When Capt. Jack, the chief of the Mo

Jack inquired: “Do you think you will j

Mozart, being once on a visit at Mar
seiMes, went incognito to hear the per
formance of his ‘‘Villatiella Rapita.” He
had reason to be tolerably well satisfied
till, in the midst of the principal aria,
the orchestra, through some trror in the
copying of the score, sounded a D-natural
where the compo.sre had written D-sharp.
This substitution did not injure the har
mony, but gave a commonplace character
to the phrase and obscured the sentiment
of the composer. Mozart no sooner heard
it than he started up vehemently and,
from the middle of the pit, cried out in
voice of thunder: “Will you play D-sharp
you wretches?” The sensation produced
in the theater may be imagined. The
actors were astounded, the woman who
was singing stopped short, the orchestra
followed her example and the audience,
with loud exclamations, demanded the ex
pulsion of the offender. He was accord
ing seized and required to name himself.
He did so. and at the name of Mozart the
clamor subsided, arid was succeeded by
shouts of applause from all sides. It was
insisted that the opera should be re-be
gun. Mozart was installed in the orches
tra and directed the whole performance.
This time the D-sharp was played in its
proper place and the musicians themselves
were surprised at the superior effect pro
duced. After the opera Mozart was colls
ducted in triumph to his hotel.
Anecdotes of “Gu*” Thomas.
Somewhere in the northeast corner of
his brain in the bark of his big square
head Mr. Augustus Thomas, the play
w i ight, keeps a fund of more or less hu
morous stories which he draws on occa
sionally for the edification of his friends,
says the New York Mail and Express. Mr.
Thomas roomed in a 6xß “apartment” in
Kansas City, Mo., in the days when the
playwright was just about to but had iot
yet “arrived.” as V e French say. He had
written “Editha’s Burglar.” and received
an occasional remittance from New York
when It was being played as a curtain
raiser at one of Mr. Frohman’s theaters.
He was not overburdened with w’ealth at
the time, and was familiarly known ss
Gus. A strapping big ex-prize fighter
who was a “bouncer” at a variety theater
in Kansas City halted Mr. Thomas in the
street one hot summer day and poured
a tale of woe into his ear.
“Look here, Gus. I asks you Is it
square?” said the “bouncer.”
“Is what .square, Bill?”’
“Why, this here game that Kiralfy’s
playing. He’s fooling all the people out
here, and the little summer snap I’m with
is up against it for fair.”
“You must be mistaken,” replied Mr.
Thomas. “Mr. Kiralfy enjoys an excellent
reputation in the theatrical business.”
“Ah, come off! Why, Jook here, Gus!
This man Kiralfy comes along with a
spectacular show, and advertises it so as
to make people think they got to rush out
and see it the first few nights, or it’ll be
gone before they get a chance. Ain’t he
billed his show as ‘The Last Days of
Pom-pe-yi-yi, eh? And ain’t the show been
running for three weeks? Last days!
That’s a fine way to gull the public! Why
doesn’t he tell the truth, and say ‘All
Summer of Pom-pe-yi-yi’ or something
near the mark like that?”
After Mr. Thomas came to New York
and wrote “Alabama” for A. M. Palmer
a friend met him in the lobby of the Madi
son Square Theater.
“Why. hello, Gus! Glad to see you. old
“Sh! Don’t call me ‘Gus’ If you love

“No; you’re mistaken. It's Mr. Augus

pleasure. This is the list: ‘The Innocents
Abroad.' ‘Roughing i It,' ‘Huckleberry
Finn,’ ‘Prince and Pauper,' ’Tom Sawyer.'
'Yankee at the Court of King Arthur.’
'Personal Reminiscences of Joan of Arc,'
•Pudd'nhead Wilson.' ‘Following the
Equator,’ and the publications of the late
firm of Charles L. Webster & Cos."
Another correspondent, who was evi
dently anxious that the books which had
Influenced Twain should influence her.
wrote requesting him to send her some of
his books for sale at a church bazar.
Clemens complied with her request, and
instructed his publLdiers 111 the following
terms: “Please charge £2 against me. and
for the same sell me several of my books,
making a discount to me that will make
the £2 go as far as possible, for the
cause is a pious one. Don’t send the books
to me. Send them to Mrs. , Birming
ham. I don’t know the lady, but she has
applied to nv- on behalf of her husband's
church. Going to hold a church fair
there, and wants some of my books to sell
to the godly. I have assured her that the
same shall be done, I being rather down
on the godly, though I did not tell her
that." Nor In his distress does his hu
mor forsake him. When the reporters cir
culated the story that Mark Twain was
dying In poverty In London, he observed
gravely, "Yes. lam dying—of course. I
am dying. But Ido not know that lam
doing it faster than anybody else.”
His Name Led All the Heat.
“14 makes me tired to read these out
landish names!" exclaimed the hotel
guest, according to the Omaha Worid-
HeraJd, ns he threw down his paper and
leaned back In his easy rhalr.
"A people who use such jaw-breaking
names ought to be wiped off the face of
the earth. How is a fellow going to re
member them? There were those awful
Boer names to begin with. Now we are
getting a dose of heathen Chinee names
that 1s enough to drive a fellow to drink.
I’m not going to read the newspapers
any more until I know this Chinese end
South African business has been set tied."
The guest threw away hie cigar and
sauntered up to the dsk.
"Guess I'll go to bed," he said to the
“All right, eir,” said the clerk, tapping
a hell. “What name, please?”
The gueat turned the register toward
him and pointed his finger to his name.
