The indications for Georgia to-day are for local rains and thunderstorms, with light to fresh southeasterly* winds; and for Eastern Florida fair in southern, local rains and thunderatorms in northern and central portions, with light to freh south easterly winds. The statement that Russia has not de clared war upon China is probably cor rect. China, however, has seen enough to hove r.o desire to know what real war would be like. Evidently Li Hung Chang is In no great hurry to go to Pekin. He has probably learned that the allied forces are getting along pretty well without his services. Then, ten#, it its safer in Shanghai. The Democrats are wilting to court noses at any time ivi-thin the Republicans upon the number of prominent men who have gone from one party* to the other. So far the Democrats have decidedly the btst of it by a score of two or three to one. 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 can millionaires at least, Mr. llanna lias proven himself a past master. The Shah of Persia is said to be figur ing on protection from Russian aggres sion in a rather roundabout manner. Rus sia, he thinks* will borrow a lot of money from America. Necessarily, therefore, Russia and America must be close friends. Persia will cultivate friendly relations with America, and America will then k- < p the bear off of Persian preserve*. The Hhah’s reasoning is Interesting Inasmuch ns the United States are not worrying thcmselvi; over Russia's plans in that far-away section of the world. The Republicans are working the free silver bugaboo for all it is worth. The administration has Just had Secretary Gac of ih<- Treasury Department issue a campaign bulletin on this line, In which he i*n<b*uvorH 10 show how Mr. iiryati could overthrow the gold standard, If he should h* ted. Hut the country Is not worrying Itself on that score Just now, when money conditions are satisfac tory and there are mri- important la •uee, nor D it likely | would have any cause for worry l u the event of a D r ' m ' w oatic victory. n BAYS BETTER SATISFIED. The speeches made at the dinner given at Santiago last Saturday night to Gen. Wood, governor general of Cuba, show’ that the Cubans are about convinced that the United Slates intend to deal fairly with them Apparently there has !>een a sus picion in their minds that, by some means they did not understand, it was the pur pose of the United States to annex the island. 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 the matter. 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 diseases. THREE KINGS. 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 lower. 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 sold th‘*re. It looks like a safe prediction that peo ple now living will set the nations of Europe do homage to the three kings of the United States—she kings of com merce.

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 that. 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 says: “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 standpoint.” 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. As the time Approaches which will put un end to prize fighting in New York, for the repeal of the Horto-n law becomes effective Sept. 1, the professional slug gers seem determined to pummel eacn other all they can before the “manly art” is outlawed. Corbett, who is to fight M - Coy on Aug. 30, wants to meet either Fitzsimmons or Jeffries the next day, ur.d Fitzsimmons is arranging to have u match with Champion Jeffries before the chance for getting a big moneyed crowd is gone. The better class of New Yorkers will wel come the prohibition that will soon be placed upon these slugging matches, and now that they will have to seek more distant places where there will be le*s money in them, there will probably be fewer fights. If Russia succeed* in negotiating that $150,000,000 loan with the rich insurance companies of the United States, it i* not likely that all of the motley will go out of the country, or if it does the chances ire thut n large part of it will come back.

She is quoted as saying with regard to the matter: “Some people will have to feel my claws before they give way, but they still will way.” It is : said the opposition of the American em bassy. and also of Commissioner Peck, has interfered with the gratification of Mrs. Palmer’s ambition. Mrs. Palmers threat would indicate that those who are responsible had better provide themselves with eye protectors. Nebraska's decrease In population, as abundantly illustrated in the census of Omaha, is liable to bring a sort of po litical disaster upon that state in the shape of the loss of one congressman. It 4s considered almost certain that the in case in the population of the United States w'ill be such that Congress will raise the basis of apportionment. Ne braska’s population is said to be about 100,000 less than i< w r as in 1890, and if Congress takes the action expected, that state is certain to show up with one con gressman less. Where can all those Ne braskans have gone to? The weather is a little warm yet for cutting mayoralty timber. It is liable to warp. PERSONAL. —Senator Morgan says that he is in bet ter health now than he has been for ten years past, and indignantly resents any intimation that he is getting feeble, i hough he is indeed slowly losing weight and his voice is weak. He is now 76 years old, but his friends say he will stay in (he Senate until he is 83. He is now at Warm Springs, Va. —The youngest son of the late Lord Russell sailed for South Africa early in the year as a lieutenant in the Royal Ar tillery. The occasion was marked by one of those inrimate touches of family af fection which excite universal sympathy. As the great troopship swung slowly from her moorings the Lord Chief Jus tice. standing on the quay, failed to des cry his son among the crowd of faces that lined the bulwarks. At last he gave a shrill whistle, using his fingers in a manner well known to schoolboys, and :ho evidently familiar call quickly brought young Russell to the side of the ship to wave farewell. The touch of na iure evoked a hearty cheer from all who witnessed it. —Special qualities of the new King of Italy’s mind, according to one of his for mer teachers, are readiness, acumen and a memory truly prodigious. He is, on the. other hand, wanting in imagination. He loves Dante better than Ariosto. He is a living encyclopaedia of history and geog raphy. At his last examination, when to his lot fell the theme of Italian history in the first part of this century, he spoke with excessive frankness of the merits and defects of the late Charles Albert, although his father and Gen. Riootti, and others who might have been dis pleased. were present. King Victor has a more frank, merry and expansive charac ter than is believed by those who do not know him intimately.

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 of labor.’’ 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 city In figures thut would make the heart of local patriotism palpitate with pride and Joy.” The Boston Globe (Ind.) pays this trib ute to Mr. Bryan: “A stumping tour is always a perilous venture for a candidate on the national ticket, and few men Indeed have him*) the tfsi. While Mr. Bryan did not win the prize which h sought In Ms speaking canvass In 1*?#;, lie did something w hich not many could do lie rr.ade hun dreds of speeches In the course of tim * ria nth* and not h word J him which profited his opponents or which he was obliged io recall or tzpisin. 1 Naturally He \Va* Galled. “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 brigadier up in bed, rubbing his eyes. “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.’’ Ilcd-Bluircri Hoy Seek* Job. 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 advertisement: “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, said: “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. For Boston Only, “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."
