The gratement which Mr. Gage, the S<* -
| rttary of the Treasury, made in the pub-
J bo prints a day or two ago, as to what
Mr. Bryan could do. if elected, to put the
finances of the government on a silver
basis, was undoubtedly Intended to assist
the managers of his party *o make the
silver issue the paramount one oi the
campaign. Previously, in an interview,
Mr. Gage said that a secretary of the
treasury appointed by Mr. Bryan could
not put the country on a silver basis with

his last statement, however, he changes
bis position, and practically says that he
Tne Republican papers think they have
a strong point against Mr. Bryan because,
in response to this last statement of Mr.
Gage, he refused to be interviewed. The
New York Herald sent an inquiry to him
an to whether, in the event of his elec
tion it would be his policy to pay the
current expenses and the interest on the
coin bonds of the government in silver.
No doubt Mr. Bryan saw that the purpose
of Mr. Gage’s statement was to draw him
into o discussion of the silver question,
and thus force into the background the
question of imperialism. He therefore said
*o the Herald’s representative that he de
clined to be interviewed on Mr. Gage’s
Now the Republican papers are saying
that Mr. Br>an no longer ins the courage
of his convictions. Thai they are mistaken
will become apparent in good time. It is
not evidence of a lack of courage that lie
’refuses to step into a trap which bis po
litical opponents have deliberately set for
him. He could not very well answer tile
question which the Herald asked without
being misunderstood by either the silver !
Republicans or the Gold Democrats.
Mr. Bryan’s whole career, however, jus
tifies the conclusion that if he should be
elected he would obey the law. including
the gold standard law. No doubt he would
uee his Influence with Congress to have
that law repealed, but ns long as it is
a law he would enforce It.
He believes In the tree coinage of sil
ver. hut, if he had the power to prac
tically nullify the gold standard law by
indirect methods, he would not exercise
that power. It can be safely said there
fore, that In the event of his election the
gold standard law will be enforced faith
fully, unless Congress repeals it. It is cer
tain that Mr. Bryan would not attempt to
evade it. His refusal to be interviewed on
the question as to what, if elected, he
would do in financial matters will do him
no harm. The people have too much con
fidence in him to believe that he is afraid
to speak plainly on any public matter at
the proper time.

The dearth of news from China is ex
plained by the statement that the Powers
are conferring with each other as to what
course shall be pursued in dealing with
China. It is probable that there is very
little happening 1 at Pekin. The allied
forces are waiting to hear from their le
spective countries. The Boxers have
practically disappeared, and the imperial
troops have followed the Dowager Em
press. Li Hung Chang is waiting to ne
gotiate for peace, but the Powers have
not agreed among themselves In respect to
They may have some difficulty In agree
ing. There is no reliable information
as to their purposes. In the absence of
information there are a great many ru
mors and much speculation. Germany,
Russia and Japan are credited with a de
termination to have portions of Chinese
territory. Russia Is said to Intend to
take Manchuria, Germany Shan-Tung. and
Japan, Korea or Amoy. The latter power
has already landed troops In Amoy. Eng
land is credited with having designs on
the rich Yang Ts© valley, though she has
thus far given no indication of a purpose
to grab any Chinese territory. In fact,
there is no ground for saying that any
one of the Powers favors taking territory
as indemnity, though it seems to be the
very general belief that territory will be
taken. China has no money, and her rev
enues are barely sufficient for the needs
of her government. It will be a difficult
matter for here therefore, to arrange for
a money indemnity.
No doubt the revenues could be very
largely Increased if her people would con
sent to the opening of the country to such
improvements as would develop trade. Be
fore her revenues could Ik- increased very
much, her exports would have to be in
creased. They could be increased very
ll will be more than Is expected If the
Powers succeed in reaching an agreement
as to the policy they will pursue in deal

they will find that their views conflict. In
that event there will not In* much hope of
maintaining the integrity of the empire.
Thus far the I'niud States have led In
diplomatic matters since the trouble begun

Powers are waiting for them to outline a
policy. They may succeed in securing
harmonious action. If they do it will be
on the urcit islanding that the integrity of
the empire is to la* preserved. They are
against taking any territory from China.
It will be known probably within the next
two or !hro days what the Powers pro

FIGHTING OVER THE OLD <STES
The protest of the Grand Army of the
Republic against the school histories used
in the public schools of the South shows
that the Union veterans will never be sat
isfied unless the Southern people accept
their view of the Civil War. In this con
nection it is inteiesting to recall that at
about every reunion of the Confederate
veterans there is a discussion of the
! school history question, the complaint of
| the Confederate veterans being that in
j many, if not most, of the public schools
jof the South the histories used do not do
| the Southern side of the Civil War jus
tice. It is worthy of notice that the Con
federate veterans do not undertake to
say what views of the Civil War shall be
taught In the public schools of the North.
They simply want the truth taught to the
children of the Southern states, but the
Union veterans not only want to say what
the public school histories of the North
shall contain, but ;lso what those used
in the South shall contain.
It ought to be apparent to them that
they arc demanding too much—that they
are meddling in a matter which does not
concern them to any great extent, and
that their protest is neither a proper one
nor is it likely *c have the least effect.
The Southern people are about as well ac
quainted with the history of the Civil
War as are the people of the North, and
are not likely to consult the wishes of
the Union veterans in the matter of his
tories for their public schools.
No doubt there are many Northern peo
ple scattered throughout the South, and
it may be that sofiie of them do not ap
prove of histories used in Southern pub
lic schools, but the fact must not be over
looked that there ure many Southern peo
ple living at the North, and the school
histories In use there may not be wholly
to their satisfaction.
As the Grand Aimy veterans grow older
their desire to run the country and to dic
tate to all of the people thereof seems to
increase. No doubt they mean well, but
they should not fed aggrieved if their in
clination to interest themselves in matters
not contemplated in their original organi
zation, should not be appreciated in all
parts of the country. Even if they were
entirely sure that the exact truth was (to
be found in the school histories in use In
the public schools of the North, it is a
question whether it is the proper thing
for them to do to protest against the his
tories in use in the public schools in the
SOCIAL SET CRITICISED.
The high society of New York and New
port is the subject of some recent sharp
criticism from such sources as to make it
attract public attention. It began with a
sermon a few Sundays ago in All Sain's
Church, Newport, by the Rev. Braddin
Hamilton, who called attention to some
of the alleged petty vices of the “smart
set,” and urged that the conduct of the
lives of those who composed that set wae
of vital importance, “not only for your
own sakes, but because of your influence
on 75.000,000 of people.” The Rev. Mr.
Hamilton charged Newport society with
petty gambling, reckleea extravagance,
vulgarity, desecration of the Sabbath by
boating, playing golf and indulging in
other sportive pleasures, and other petty
vires of various kinds and degrees. There
followed a more mild-mannered criticism
of the social set by Cardinal Gibbons, who
drew a contrast between the duties of the
wife and mother and the frivolities of the
woman of the fashionable set. Then came
Mr. Thomas Nelson Page, even more se
vere in his condemnation than was the
Rev. Mr. Hamilton. Mr. Pago denied ve
hemently' the intimation that the people
looked up to the swell social set as ex
emplars. and asserted that “outside of
their own circle there are not 50,000 people
in all the country who do not reprobate
and deride their arrogance.’’
Seeking some Information on the other
side of the Question n representative of a
New' York paper interviewed Commodore
El bridge T. Gerry', one of the best known
and most typical Newport residents, and
one or two other prominent summer mem
bers 6f that social colony. The conclusion
reached was that neither the Rev. Mr.
Hamilton nor Mr. Page knew anything
about the subject upon which they had
essayed to speak. The preacher was un
known to the social side of Newport, and
that feature of Newport was, no doubt,
unknown to him. Commodore Gerry and
others asserted that the amusements in
dulged in ate moderate and innocent, that
there is no gambling uixl no Sabbath des
ecration. As for the entertainments giv
en by the wealthy he showed fiow they put
money into the pockets of those who need
ed it, and were nothing more than a source
of innocent amusement and enjoyment to
the young | tropic who took part in them.
Commcdore Gerry blames the public for
its hypercritical attitude toward New
port society, the result of a
demand lo be kept informed
through the news; apers of the doings of
the wealthy. This he attributes to curi
osity rather than envy. Commodore
Gerry seems to have taken the most lib
eral view of the matter. There are un
doubtedly as good p* ople. and as many
of them, comparatively speaking, among
the social set of New York and Newport
as are to be found in any of the other
lass of people.

North Carolina will have an ample sup
ply of good timber from which to pick
her next senator. Chairman Simmons is
the man who led the Democratic hosts to
vlctofy in the recent stirring campaign.
He is a shrewd and careful politician of
the better sort. Gen. Carr, the million
aire tobacco manufacturer of Durham, is
one of the most broad-minded and dem
ocratic rich men in the country. His pub
lic spirit and afTection for the “common
people’’ are proverbial in North Carolina.
Mr. Waddell, formerly a member of Con
gress, is the man who took hold of the
situation in Wilmington at the time of
the riots something over a year ago and
brought order out of what for a time
promised to be an extremely serious con

The male shirtwaist crusade, it appears,
is to be conducted on business principles.
The fad is too good a thing for the shirt
manufacturers to miss, and they are evi
dently going to work it for all it is worth.
Th© traveling men representing these
manufacturers are under instructions, it
is said, not to wear coats anywhere, if
they can avoid it, and to put in their best
efforts for shirts at every oppor
tunity. Another season will, doubt
less, see styles of shirts to
be worn without coats, too numerous to
keep Crack of, and the shirtwaist dude
will be a sight to see. The anti-coat cru
sade promises to revolutionize male at
tire as much as did the change from knee
breeches and long waistcoats to trousers
and vests a few decades ago, but the
chances are it will be sometime before

The Florida Agricultural Experiment
Station has just issued an important bul
letin on pecan culture in that state, with
a view to encouraging this valuable in
dustry in the section where the trees can
be grown to advantage. The pec'an tree
in Florida flourishes as far south as
Oneco and Fort Meade, though It floes
better in the middle and northern parts
of the state. The methods of propagating
the pecan are dealt with extensively in
the bulletin end much important informa
tion is given. It also quotes from some
Georgians who have interested themselves
in the industry in the southern part of
this state, and who have demonstrated
that Georgia can raise a most excel
lent product. The bulletin is largely pre
liminary and will be followed by others
from the experiment station with a view’
to extending the pecan industry in Flor
ida. It is an industry that promises to
demand great attention in this section.
Curiously enough statements made by
ex-Mlnister Denby who has gone over to
the Republicans, are responsible in part
for the conversion of President John J.
Valentine of the Wells-Fargo Express
Company to the Democratic w’ay of
thinking. Mr. Denby said in his report
as a member of the Philippine Commis
sion, that if these islands would not ben

Mr. Valentine reasons that the islands
cannot be of any lasting benefit to us, and

Rubbing Sticks Together.
“Hanged if 1 believe anybody ever made
a fire by rubbing two sticks together, all
travelers’ yarns to <he contrary notwith
standing,” declared an enthusiastic local
sportsman the other day, according to the
New Orleans Times-Democrat. “I spent
a couple of weeks with a camping party
on the upper Red river, west of Winfield,
last spring,” he went on, “and one morn
ing I got separated from the other boys,
and it was night before I found my way
back to our shack. I am an inveterate
smoker and when I filled up my pipe after
wandering around for an hour or two 1
was horrified to find that my match safe
was empty. As soon as I made the discov
ery my desire for a smoke increased
ul)out 500 per cent. If I had had my gun
along I could have started a blaze with
out trouble, but unluckily I had set out
to do some fishing and had no weapon
but my hook and line. Naturally, the first
thing that occurre i to me was flint and
steel, but I couldn't find any flint, and
then I happened to think of the old story
about making fire with two pieces of
wood. Well, I won’t tire,you with details,
but if ever a man gave an experiment a
conscientious trial I did on this occasion.
I picked up chunks of half a dozen dif
ferent kinds of wood, trimmed them down
with my penknife and tried them all in
various combinations, using one hard and
one soft stick, exactly as the story books
.say the Indians do. But, although I rubb
ed until the pesky things were chafed
nearly in two, I never succeeded in get
ting them even warm. At las< I remem
bered reading somewhere about a scheme
of the natives of Java, who are said to
lay a flat piece of wood on the ground
and twirl a small rod, top-fashion, on its
surface, by means of a cord. I soon made
one of the machines, cutting up my sus
penders for the string, and if you had
seen me squatting there see-sawing the
thing you would have taken oath that I
had lost ,my mind. At the end of half an
hour I was redhot and the apparatus was
dead cold. The longer I twirled the cooler
it got. If I had kept on another half
hour 1 believe I would have had a stick
frappe. But I had gone far enough to
convince me that the man who wrote the
story was a double-barrelled, back-action,
triple-plated liar, and I yearned violently
for his gore. I struck camp just about
dusk, and the first thing I did was to
grab a coal from the fire and put it on
my pipe. Later on I discovered four
matches in the lining of my vest. I won’t
repeat my remarks, but my friend's asked
me why I didn’t talk that way in the
woods. They say my language would have
set fire to u piece of asbestos.”

“Do you spik Grik?”
“Do you Fpik Turk?’
“Do you spik Spanish?*
“Do .\ou spik Russian?”
After a pause the old man. with consid
