Congressman George Henry White of
North Carolina, the only colored represen
tative in Congress, has decided he w ill not
be a candidate for re-election. He gives
various reasons for his determination, but
the altitude of certain of his constituents
probably had a gpod deul to do with It.
The people of North Carolina will hardly
worry themselves over Congressman
White’s threat thut he will leave the state.
The Republicans are deeply worried
over Indiana. They have made a poll of
the state and find, it i said, that it is
Democratic by 18.000 majority. This fact
has caused no little consternation among
the Republican leaders in Indiana, and it
will probably result in the distribution
there of a large slice of Mr. Hanna’s
campaign fund. The Republicans will,
doubtless, ilnd similar surprises in several
other sections of the country.
Chairman Hanna’s Asbury Park speech
appears to huvo borne good fruit. He
went down <to Philadelphia Saturday and
asked a few Republican capitalists there
for $500,000 _*r SGOO,OOO for the Republican
campaign fund. While he did not get all
the cash he secured promises that the
amount needed would be forthcoming. As
a dispeller of apathy among the Republi

proven himself a past master.
The Shah of Persia is said to be figur

with America, and America will then k- < p

Gen. Wood has succeeded in a marked
degree in getting and retaining the confi
dence of the Cubans. He was popular
when he was governor of Sanitago prov
ince and he is popular as the governor of
the entire island. The speech he made
at the Santiago dinner will have a bene
ficial influence. It was a very frank staie
ment of the purposes of ih* Tidied States,
and the advice it contained, namely, that
the Cubans send their best men as dele
gates to the Constitutional Convention, ev
idently had a good effect. He pointed out
that if it were the purpoee of the United
States to get possession of the island he
would not give such advice. He would
attempt, rather, to have the convention !
made up of agitators and irreconcllables.
There has never been any reason to
doubt that the United States Intended to j
act in good faith towards the Cubans. !
They promised them a stable government j
and independence. They are now endeav- i
oring to give them a liberal and stable (
government. When they accomplish that
they will withdraw from the island and
permit the Cubans to have sole control of
their own affairs.
It would be a mistake for them to with
draw now. The Cul>ans would be lighting
among themselves in less than a month.
The United Sfates would have to send
another army to the island to restore or
der, and the difficulty of establishing a j
stable government would be much greater
then than it is at present.
Some of the Cubans are impatient be
cause they are not permitted to set up a
government without the help or guidance
of the United States. It would be sur
prising if there were not some growlers
and kickers. It is probable, however,
that the dissatisfied ones have nothing at
stake and are seeking personal advantages
of some sort. It will do no harm to ig
nore them, because if the great mass of
the people are satisfied the malcontents
can cause no serious trouble.
S AMTARY HKtill. \TIOX9.
A well known citizen said yesterday
that the garbage wagon had not been at
his house since last Friday morning, and
that the inspector had not been on his
premises but on cfe in a year. We do not
know whether the sanitary regulations
require the garbage collector to remove
garbage from the yards of residences
daily or not, but it seems to us that
the garbage ought to be removed every
day. In weather like we have been hav
ing for nearly a month, garbage decays
rapidly, and is likely to breed disease.
And premises of residences should be vis
ited by the sanitary inspectors at least
once a week.
What Is the use of having inspectors if
premises of residences are not visited of
tener than once a year? It may be that
the premises of the gentleman who made
the foregoing complaint have been over
looked for some reason or other, and that
there is no just ground of complaint
against inspectors. It would be well,
however, for the authorities to look into
At this season of the year too mtic'h
care cannot be taken to preserve the
health of the city. If there were the least
suspicion of serious sickness there would
be a rushing here and there of inspectors
and a careful cleaning up of premises all
over the city. Is it not the wiser plan
to enforce the healA ordinance so that
there will be no suspicion of serious sick
ness? It is the better plan to keep the
city in a good sanitary condition tlwin to
undertake to put it in good sanitary con
dition when there is alarm respecting the
public health. We do not undertake to
say that the weeds on vacant lots in the
southern part of the city should be cut
and removed, but the health officer says
they should. As he is the head of the
health department it seems to us that his
judgment should control in the matter.
The city is in a remarkably healthy con
dition now—at least that seems to be the
understanding. It is the part of wisdom
to try to keep it so by taking all reason
able precautions against the causes of
In its Sunday issue the New York Her
ald published u picture of three kings—
king cot-ton, king wheat and king coal.
These three kings have their thrones in
this country. For a number of years we
have been supplying Europe with cotton
for her mills and wheat with which to
feed her people. Now it begins to Iqok
as if the time is close at hand when
we shall have to supply her with coal
with which to run her mills and cook the
bread of her people.
Within the last few months a great deal
of American coal has been shipped to Eu
rope. This has been made possible by
the rise in the price of coni in all Euro
pean countries. The rise was due to the
extraordinary demand and to strikes of
coal miners. The strikes are about over
now, however, and it is probable that
the price of coal will be considerably
But the time is not distant when Eu
rope will have to get her supply of coal
from this country. Her mines are, be
coming exhausted. Already the cost of
mining it is considerably greater than it
wan a few years ago. The supply in this
country is practically Inexhaustible. It
has been estimated that, even with a
very much greater output, it is sufficient
to last for more than 2,000 years.
What is about to happen is this: Owing
to the lower cost of mining coal in this
country and getting it to the coast, and
the steady Increase in the cost of mining
coal in Europe, it will bo possible to sell
American coal in the European market*
cheaper than the home product can be

EX-HIMSTER DEARY’S LETTER.
The fact that the Republican Committee
gave to the public the letter of ex-Mlnister
Denby, in which an attempt is made to
show that Mr. Bryan is not sincere in op
loosing imperialism, is satisfactory evi
dence that the Republican leaders are
coming to the conclusion that they will not
be able to make silver the paramount issue j
of the campaign; that they will have to
accept as the leading issue the one the ,
Democratic platform makes so, namely,
imperialism. It does not seem to us that
Mr. Denby treats Mr. Bryan fairly. He
insinuates, in fact, he says, that Mr.
Bryan created the issue of imperialism
simply to have an opportunity of fighting
it—of destroying his own creation.
He must give Mr. Bryan credit for be
ing a much abler man than even his ad
mirers think he is. It is true that Mr.
Bryan favored the ratification of the Paris
treaty by which this country came into j
possession of the Philippines, but he did
not do so with the view of creating the |
issue of Imperialism, and of putting the
Republican party in the affirmative in re- j
gard to it. A brainier man than he could '
hardly have concocted euch a scheme as
Mr. Bryan favored the ratification of [
the treaty simply because he wanted the :
war brought to a dose and our, soldiers *
brought home, and also because he be
lieved that the American people would in
sist upon treating the Filipinos just as
they had agreed to treat the Cubans.
When the question of ratifying the treaty
was before the Senate he had no idea that
imperialism would be an issue in the |
presidential campaign. In fact, he did not
want it to be un issue. He favored the
Bacon resolution. The adoption of that
resolution would have made such an issue
as imperialism impossible. And yet Mr.
Denby would have the country believe
that Mr. Bryan is the creator of the issue
of imperialism in order that he might op
pose it. Mr. Denby knows better than that.
RBCOGM/dNt; THE TRUTH.
The Republican papers, quite generally,
□re admitting that the race riots in New
York city and in Akron, 0., show con
clusively that the race prejudice is n<*
strong in the North as i is in the South,
and that the North has no excuse for de
nouncing the South for lynching negro
criminals. The Times-Herald of Chicago
“This is a time of humiliation in the
North, one that calls for a confession to
our Southern brethren and much self
condemnation. All the moralizing that
has been applied to the ease of negro
lynchings beyond the Ohio river applies
with equal force to the case at Akron.
****** * *
“No Southern mob was ever more crazed
by the spirit of anarchy or more indis
putably guilty of the law-breaking which
encourages a contempt for all law'. And
this frightful record was made in the
Western Reserve of Ohio, a hotbed of
abolition, a center of sympathy for the
negro and much self-righteous denuncia
tion of the Southern 'race wars.’
“Until the North can prove that its vir
tue is of liner stuff it had better he silent
on the race question or treat it from a
general rather than from a sectional
Before the New York and Akron riots
the Northern papers refused to admit that
there was any race prejudice in -the
North. Even if they thought there was
some there they refused to acknowledge
it, because they did not want to deprive
themselves of an excuse for denouncing
the Soutn. Besides, these Republican pa
pers recognized the fact, though they
would not openly admit it, that their
party was responsible for the unhappy
position in w’hich the negro was placed.
That party placed the ballot in his hand
before be was ready for it, and it did not
do it for his benefit, but in order to re
tain control of the government—to gain
congressmen and electoral votes.
The race problem is a serious one
one of the most serious the country has
to solve. Heretofore the North has re
garded it as a problem for the South. It
knows now that it is a problem for the
whole country. It is no longer possible
for the Northern papers to charge that
the South is behind the North in civiliza
tion w'henever a negro is lynched in the
South. Judged solely from the standpoint
of the treatment the negro receives in
each section, the South’s civilization is
superior to that of the North.
The Navy Department has recently had
a most remarkable proposition from Capt.
O. D. Sigßbee, formerly commander of the
battleship Maine. While in command of
the Texas he wrote to the department
Faying that in spite of nil efforts to pre
vent it, the sailors were surreptitiously
securing alcohol and cases of drunkenness
were frequent. It seems that the sailors
not only got into the ship’s supply of
alcohol used in mixing paints, hut also
had found way to extract the alcohol
from shellac and to clarify it even ef
ter the shellac had been mixed with Vene
tian red. In view of this fact, Capt.
Sigsbee suggested that all alcohol kept on
shipboard for such use have mixed with it
tartar emetic, and that it he so marked.
Surgeon General Van Roy pen of the Navy
Department quickly put a veto on this
proposition, saying it would kill any man
who drank the alcohol in which the poison
was dissolved. The presence of the poison,
it was considered, would not deter the men
from making an effort to get alcohol, so
it was determined that the same old meth
od of watchfulness will have to be con
tinued in use.

Cl H RENT COMMENT.
The Philadelphia Times (Ind.) say*:
“Just now, when the negro is so much in
the news as an object of attack by mobs,
in the North as well as in the South, it is
significant that at a session of the Negro
National League, in Boston last Friday,
W. O. Emery of Macon, Ga.. advised the
negroes of Boston to remove to the South
and go into business. He said there were
many more opportunities for them there
and that the South was the land for the
negro. Another speaker told of the
chances offered in Nebraska, and another
.*q>oke for South Carolina,saying that there
negro masons were employed on the Ma
sonic Temple now being built in Columbia,
and asking if negro workmen in Boston
were allowed as good a chance in the field
The Philadelphia Record (Pern.) says:
“No oiher government in the world but
that of the United States has so barbarous
a tariff as to make it necessary' to main
tain in foreign |>orts an expensive train
of detectives to ferret out contemplated
frauds upon the custom house revenues.
In spite of all the vigilance of this detec
tive corps, it is probable that ten smug
glers run the custom house gauntlet with
their contraband wares to one who is
caught. In this contraband traffic, is a
large invisible factor not to be accounted
for in the balance of foreign commerce.”
The New York Journal of Commerce
(Rep.) says: “The dissatisfaction with the
census is so general that we suggest the
abandonment of enumeration and the sub
stitution of estimates by eminent local
authorities. This would cost nothing and
would give universal satisfaction. A com
mittee consisting of representatives of the
local newspapers, the compilers of direc
tories, and the supervisors of school cen
suses would state the population of each

of local patriotism palpitate with pride

“You go hack to your editor.” said Ly
curgus May bury, according to ihe Chicago
Times-Herald, “and tell him that he
can’t have a picture of the room in which
my daughter is to be married. I want
you to understand, sir, that mv daughter
is not a public character, even if I do
haftpen to be a leading citizen. There are
things about every man's household that
are sacred. What right has the public
to demand an invasion of my home for the
purpose of publishing to the world all the
details concerning my daughter’s wed
ding? None! None, whatsoever, sir. This
is not a matter in which the public has
any right to be unduly interested. Those
people whom we desire to have made ac
quainted with the facts in the case we
have invited to the ceremony. As for the
rest, we must ask them to excuse us. We
have no desire for notoriety in this mat
ter. Good day, Fir.”
The reporter said “Good day,” and pro
ceeded to get from other sources such
facts as he wanted.
On the following morning Lycurgus
Maybury walked in<o the office of the ed
itor of the Blythdale Sentinel and, tap
ping fiercely upon the latter’s desk, said:
"I would like to know, sir, what kind of
a sheet you pretend to be running here?”
“I’m sorry, Mr. Maybury,” the editor
answered, “that we were compelled to
publish an account of your daughter's
wedding without your consent. I fully ap
preciate your feelings in the matter, but
the fact is, Mr. Maybury, that you do
not appreciate your community. A man
in your position is necessarily a public
character and it is impossible to overlook
social affairs in which a citizen of your
prominence is so deeply interested as you
happen to be in the one under considera
tion. I know that when you come to
study the matter calmly you will see it in
this light. If there are any misstatements
in our account of the wedding we will
be pleased to correct them. We made spe
cial efforts to be careful, but of course,
it is not always possible ”
“Say, confound you!” the leading citi
zen interrupted. “I’m not complaining
about what you published. It’s what you
didn't publish that makes one
mad. Here you have half a column about
my daughter’s marriage and over two
columns about the wedding of that little
red-headed Jim Cooper's daughter, not to
mention pictures of her and him and the
preacher! If my girl’s worth only half a
column and no picture when those folks
get nearly half a page you can stop my
paper, and I don't care a durn how soon.”
He Smoked Them Himself.
Edison is fond of smoking, hut he be
comes so absorbed in work that he even
forgets that he has a cigar in his mouth,
relates the Chicago Tribune. When be
had an office in Fifth avenue. New York,
the desk in which he kept a box of cigars
was always open, and as the boys came
and went at all hours his cigars disap
peared with mysterious rapidity. Final
ly' he asked a friend who was in the to
bacco business if he could not do some
thing to discourage this disappearance.
“Why, yes," said the friend, “I’ll make
up some cigars for you. I’ll put Hoffman
House labels on the outside, but I’ll till
them up with horsehair and hard rubber.”
“Well,” said Mr. Edison in relating
the story, “that fellow went to California
and didn’t return for three months. I
forgot about him meantime, but when he
got back I said to him. Look here, I
thought you w’ere going to fix me up some
fake cigars.’ ‘Why. I did,’ he said in
surprise. ‘You did? When?’ ‘Why,
don’t you remember—a flat box with a
green label; the cigars, in bundle form,
tied with yellow ribbon?’
“<Do you know.” said Edison innocently,
“I smoked them all myself!”
Spunking; a General.
I sec that the Mosby Guerrillas have had
another reunion—this time at Fairfax,
Va., where Mosby captured Brig. Gen.
Edwin H. Stoughton and started on the
road to fame, says a writer in the New
York Press. He was enabled to effect this
amazing coup de guerre by Sergt. James
F. Ames of the Fifth New* York Cavalry,
who deserted from that command because,
he said, “the war had become a war for
the negro instead 'of a war for the Un
ion." Ames led the way to Fairfax, where
Stoughton had been entertaining royally
thut night, and was now in l>ed sleeping
deeply. Mosby walked up tcv the bed and
pulled off the cover. Stoughton slept on.
The ranger pulled up his shirt and
gave him a hard spank, which sat the

“General, did you ever hear of Mosby?’’
whispered the guerilla. “Yes,’’ was the
quick reply; “have you captured him?’
“No; I am Mosby, and he has captured
you. Stuart’s cavalry holds the town and
Jackson is at Centerville.” This was a
lie to deprive Stoughton of hope. “Is
Fitz Lee there?’’ he asked, in on excess
of agony. “Yes.” “Take me to him; we
were at West Point together.’’

Red-headed boys blocked the sidewalk
in front of 10 Wabash avenue to-day, soys
the Chicago Record. Boys aged from 10
ro 18 years and with hair of all shades,
from the beautiful golden red so loved by
Titian to a common brickdust red, strug
gled and fought for a front place and for
first admission to the elevator. All this
was because of the following newspaper
“WANTED—OFFICE BOY; MUST BE
bright and red-headed. Orme & Sutton
Rice Cos., 503, 19 Wabash avenue.”
Both Mr. Orme and Mr. Sutton have
hair of o light blonde type. They both
have an affinity for red hair, and Mr.
Sutton will have no other color about his
office if he can avoid it. His-sister, who
was in charge of the office* this morning,
“Mr.Sutton has always had a red-haired
office boy since I can remember. The
present boy if Thomas Crosby, who tr/o
years ago shot Deputy Sheriff Nye.”
Tommy has hair of a brilliant hue and
his employer says he is one of the bright
est boye of his age in Chicago.

“Yes,” said fhe proprietor of the fire
service factory, according to the Cleveland
Plain Dealer, “that's a good ladder, but
it isn’t what you want. That ladder Is
made out of rubber.’’
“Out of rubber?’’ echoed the spokes
man of the Junketing Committee of the
Cbebunk City Council.
“Yes, pun rubber,’’ the proprietor con
tinued 1 . “It’s intended for use in Boston.
It’s die only way they can get a hook
and ladder truck through their narrow
<lowri-town streets. Why, I've seen- a
ladder of that *ize almost hent double
when It tried to turn a oorner. The
only danger is that when the rubber
snaps back if is likely to take n flromm
witii it. 1 saw a poor fellow flung hi if
across the Common by the recoil of the
rubber one mornkus- He got up. wiped
hi* spectacles, said something warm in
Greek, and returned to the truck."
