The colored people seem to tie somewhat ■tlrrcd up over the fact that litshop Tur ner of the A. M. E. Church Is urging the election of Mr. Bryan In the Republican congressional convention for this district yesterday, he was bitterly denounced, it I* probable, however, that It Is a matter of Indifference to him how much Ihe col ored politicians denounce him. He I* the sort of a man to do pretty much aa he pleases. A Muton letter In the New York Sun Intimate* that his purpose In coming out for Mr. Itryan 1* to head off legislation In this state that would take the. ballot away from the negro. The letter states that the Hardwick bill will be introduced Into the I-CKlalattire again—the Legisla ture that will meet the latter part of next month—by Mr. Roland Kill* of Ulbb coun ty. It Is also htnled In Ihe .Mtn-on letter that Bishop Turner has an understanding with the Democratic leader* of the North that In the event of Mr. Brian's election troops will be used to pul a stop lo lynch ing*. % It la safe to say that Bishop Turner Is not figuring on preventing legislation In this stale similar lo that In North Caro lina and tlml he has no understanding with Northern Democrats rtwpectlng lynching*. It Is not In his power lo In fluence legislation In Georgia, and It Is not a matter of any consequence lo North ern Democrats whelher he support* Mr. Bryan or not. The South Is going lo vote for Mr Bryan anyhow and Bishop Tur ner cannot Influence any Northern voters. He cannot make speeches In that set Hon or any other. Hl* health I* such that he la barely able to crawl around from one church to another of hla diocese. Ail there I* behind tit* support of Mr. Bryan. In all prohabtttty, I* that he doesn't like Mr. McKinley because Mr. McKinley hasn't stopped lynching*. The Bishop doesn't seem to realize that he himself con do more to stop lynching* than any President could do. He can teach his peo ple not lo commit Ihe crime for which lynching Is moat common. When negroes cease to commit crime lynching* will practically cease. AID PON GALVESTON. There Is no doubt that the response in thin city to the call for aid for Ihe suf ferer* from the great storm at Galveston will las prompt and liberal. The Mayor has appointed o committee of twenty four gentlemen who will receive sub scriptions from citizens, beginning so day. The Benevolent Association have already sent ll.uoo to Galveston. There ought lo be no trouble |n quickly rztetng ft.WO more, 25.000 from ttavannati would boa very fair contribution. The calamity from which the people of Galveston ore suffering w-as the greatest of the kind by which nny section of thl* country has boon visited. Thousands or them are mourning the loss of members of their families or of dear friends, and thousands are destitute. The whole coun try la moving to relieve 4he|r imtiKdlatc need* and assist them until they cun get their homes In a condition to live In and get themselves re-established In their re spect Ivm businesses and occupations. B. vunnah can be driiendcrl upon to do her •hare of the good work. At Weatherly, Pa., the other day a mis er of the name of Lurrlch tiled of star vation, with |2.osi> In hla pocket and jau.- 000 In bank. He had made It a rule never ta break a bill for his own accommoda tion and never to draw money from the hank for his personal wants. Finding himself without small change, he starved rather than break a bill. No sincere re gret I* ever fell for the taking off of such a man. Hla heir*. It may be expect ed. will shortly tie breaking the bills fast enough. If lynching I* ever justifiable. It seem* that some of II might be practiced now at Galveston with good effect. The hu man ghouls who arc prowling among the dead, cutting off fingers ami ears of corpses la order lo secure ring* ami Jew els, deserve nothing better than a few feci of rope swung over tho nearest limb or lamp post. THE MORNING NEWS: THURSDAY." SEPTEMBER 13. 1000. 1 t tltlOi M11.1.A Kill TTIYG DOWN. Fol owing tkt pul> o( some o( the j English <ottor mill*, several ot the Au ' gusla cotton mill# have derMed lo shut down until there Is a (all In the price of I cotton or a rise In the price ol cotton ! goods. It seem, that at th prewnt price ' of i utton goods there i no profit lor the , mill*. There he* been a little rise In Ihe price o( cotton goods recently, and It I* prob ,ilit; there will be n still further rise. There will undoubtedly If many of the mills close down. The reason there wa* such a fall in the pr! e of cotton goods a short lime ago. after the great rise, was ovcrjirodurthm. During the time that the high prlei c prevailed all of the mills were run al their fullest capacity. The cons*- qusii-e was that the market wa* over sto k and There Is no probability apparently t at there will be a full In the price of cotton—at least such a fall as will materially affect the price# ot rollon good*. Indeed, the Indica tion# are for a higher price for cotton. Be fore the great Texas storm the estimates w. re all In the .lire. Hon of a crop us smalt as that of last year, and It t* probable that the Texas crop has been damaged to the extent of n hundred thousand bales or more. In fact, some of the reports place the- damage at a much larger number of bale*. The crop last year having been a short one. and the outlook being that the crop this year will also hr short, there la no reason whey there should be a decline In price of cotton. The shutting down of a large number of mills for a time will produce a scarcity of rollon Roods, and bring about a rise In the price* of them. The mills that have closed down will then be In si posi tion to resume oprtallons The price of cotton is higher that* It has been for ten year*, and the cotton mar ket Is strong. If the Chinese trouble were to l>e settled wllhln the next month It Is pretty certain that rotton would aelvance to.islder.iMy beyond Its present price. THE AYTHHACtTB HTIIIKE The strike that wws ordered yesterday by the United Mine Workers of America In the anthracite cool region of Pennsyl vania will render Idle from 100.not* to men. If It continues long (here will he a great deol of suffering among (hear min ers an<! their families. It Is a strike that will have an Important bearing on the presidential election, though to what ex tent It will Influence the result of the election It Is tmposelhle to say. It Is claimed that the great Homestead sirlke was responsible for the defeat of Gen. Harrison for n second term. President Mitchell of the United Mine- Workers said n day or two ago that pol itic* had nothing to do with the Issues raised between the miners and the opera tors-i-that the Issues were of long stand ing. nnd that the miners were Exasperated because the operators refused to arbitrate them or to make any <-on res* toe* If what has appeared In the papers shout the matter ls true, the min er* have grievances which should he ad justed at once*. The operators' side of the story has not been generally published, but It Is probable It will be now. ns both sides will seek the sympsthy of the public. It Is to la- hoped lhat there will be an ad justment of the trouble quickly, so that there will be no suffering among the fam ilies of the miners on account of It. Till* (H9<iHKftSlfl9lL DIWTHICT. 4 Of course, neither of Ihe gentlemen who have been nominated by Ihe Republicans In this Oongreaslonal District expects to be elected. If there were only one Repub lican candidate hf would stand no chance of representing the district at Washing ton. The district Is Democratic by a large majority. Besides, Col. Lester I* a very popular man. ami hn* rendered the district excellent service. He will be re-elected Indeed there mulijie no douWl about the matter even If he should make no effort In his own behalf. Mr. Lcnken and Mr. Johnson would get something more out of the nomination probably th in simply the honor of It, If Mr. McKinley should he fortunate enough to he re-elected. One of them might get the collsctorshlp and the other the post' office. However, there Is n pretty strong probability that Mr. BryHn will dispense the patronage for the next administration. Therefore, the two Republican candidates have nothing to look forward to except defeat and the fact that they were honor ed by Ihelr party. It would be Interesting lo know If Ihe Idler which the Chicago Ttmes-Herald prints from Rh-hard Harding Davis anent that gentleman's quarrel with the Karl of Rosslyn Is an authentic document. In the letter In question this sentence oeeurs: "Thl* reduce* the matter lo a question of veracity lietween he and I." Is It possible that Mr. Richard Harding Davis could have committed an glaring a sole cism? Even If Mr. Davis Is angry with one of Ihe Queen's subjects, that doe* not warrant him tn doing violence to the Queen's English. We are rather Inclined lo ihe opinion that liberties were taken with Mr. Davis' letter In the Ttmes-Her ■v Id office, so n to make It conform to English *lt Is spoken In Chloago. Per haps the whole trouble Is due to Mr. Davis' habitual use of "I." A sad ami gruesome Incident of the Galveston horror Is the manner of dis posing of the dead, made necessary by circumstances. The weather Is still warm at Galveston, and lifeless flesh quickly decay*. In order, therefore, lo avoid the breaking out of pestilence which might wipe out other hundreds of the population, It Is Imperative that the bodies of victim* of the storm, animal and human, shall be gathered quickly and as quickly disposed of. There I* no time for Identification* nnd burials; Ihe bodies must be taken out and consigned to the sea. It la hard tor those bereft of loved ones to contemplate this manner of disposing of the dead, hut duty to the living will not permit of any slower prores*. In a Philadelphia suburb a day or two ago a quick-witted and athletic young far mer saved the life of a small son of a well to-do cltlsen. The grateful father tendered the farmer hla porkethook. containing about UW. and asked him to accept It ns a reward. "I don't want any money for that," aakl the man In the overalls; "but I'll tell you what." he continued, “If It's all the same to you, I'll smoke that cigar which 1 see sticking out of your waistcoat pocket and call it square.” Needless to say he got the cigar, and no doubt several hundred others as good or belies Joaquki Mitier writes fioai China: "1 Invoke. I implore my country lo get out of this rotten and tnou’.dy land and keep out of It. It I* not flt for a white map. In fact, I do not believe a white man eoutl live here a thousand year* without taring exactly like a Chinaman.” Of rout## the suggi ttion of any man's living a thousand year* In China Is mi rely poetic license What Mr. Miller means I* that the white r*-e would become yellow, slapl-eyed. tupe.s'.iilous. vtn.ll live, true! and unsanitary by living In the China mans eounrry for a long time.

CTHHKXT COMMENT. • The Nashville American (Dcm.), com menting on the President'* teller of accep tance. says: "I* the I'nlted Stales to hold the Philippine* or Is tt not? That ques tion was asked a thousand times before the campaign started, nnd each time the Republican fairly, as a party, answered it in the affirmative. 'The flag must never come down, no scuttle policy In the Ori ent. It must stay there forevir.' Th-n wiry not say so. Mr President? Why tem porlzc. why try to be on both sides of the feme at the same time?

Us plain duty to the Porto Ricans proposition and the rest." The Kansas City Times (Dem.). says "The silence of Tom Reed and Benjamin Hnrrhnm will persuade more of Ihe old guard ol Ihe Republican party to vote amlnst Imperialism than the roarings of Roosevelt, the ranimgs of Urosvetior and the vaudeville oratory of Johnathan Dol llver will befool into voting for the Han na-McKinley policies of criminal aggres sion amt trust fattening." The Cincinnati Enquirer (Dem.). says; "Penalor Wellington will not be lonesome among Republican* on the question of Imperialism. Thera will be thousand* of them who will not assume to be able to ~, as well as Ibo Sana tor dors, and who may not tvlsh to hreek silence; but they will vote with great ability."

In ordrr to keep a charter olive, worked for seven years on the constru< lion of a railroad ami nev er completed the grauing of a mile of (he line, was told the other day, say* the New York Times, by a ratlroed man af the franchise and property of the road tn question, a l.ttle line In West Vir ginia, bad been absorbed by one of the large railroad systems which run through that atate. ‘The man's name was Brannon,” he said, "but they used lo call h:m old mule John.' broauae be used to do all the haul ing and carting himself with the aid of a whe ibarrow. tfometlmea they used to stank of film Jokingly a* general super intendent Brannon, for h- really held noi only that office, but those of chief engin eer, division superintend' nt.

Gin ••Hickeys" With Robber Tires. 'The lime In that gtn rlokey has been used t least four time* before," said John lat Hay. an English actor, accord ing to Ihe New York letter of the Chicago Tlmes-Herald. "and 1 won't drink it." It was In a hotel bar near Thirty-fifth street and Broadway to-night. As the ac tor angrily banged ‘town In. gloss on the bar half a doxen other adore gra*|wd him warmly by the hand. They, too. had been drinking gtn rickeys made out of second hand limes, but they had not the moral courage to protest. Here was a real hero to fight for their cause. Le Hay fished out tho "Itmr" from hi* glass. It wa* mode of India rubber. "I'll put this In my pocket as evidence,” ne remarked, but the bartender protested. "How cun we serve gin rickeys If you take away our only lime?" he demanded. The India rubber lime Is not used as a rule until very tote tn the evening, when people grow bibulous, and .to not notice very closely what they're drinking. The bartender puts half a teaspoonful of real lime Juice In the India rubber lime etch tine It ta used. Is- Hay Is now the champion of the rtalto.

It Is Against my Princi ples.” So the Man gave up the Sunday Papers and Sat and Smoked all day. But this she Did not Permit very long. "It Is an I'nwholsome Habit and on Ex pensive One.” she said, "besides. It ts Against my Principles." On the Next Sunday the Man purchased a Tick”! to. Manhattan Bench, and left his Home with u Cigar and a Sunday Paper In his bond. "Sunday Is a Hard Enough Day with out so Many Principles," he said So she Lori tbe Chance of Reforming him. This teaches us that Man wa* not Made for the Sabbath. Where Wit Is Wild. The Rocky Mountain Jrt< r delights you with violent, boisterous, unpredictable whlmsleall Ka, say* the Boston Transcript. He I* mannerleasly frolicsome. There sat next me at table a married man who so reverently adored his wife that In our presence he uniformly addressed her a* “Old Sweet Apple*." I-noklng up from hi* plate one morning at breakfast, he solllo qu zed In thl* fashion: "Polka." said he. “I don't know where I'd lie If II wasn't for my wife." The lady beamed affection ate appreciation "Nope " continued the proud husband. "I don't know where I'd be If tt wasn't for my wife—she's a great drawback!" In Jail. A funny story la told of the governor of a certain prison, say* tbe New York Press. On being appointed to the posi tion he was taken by .the prison chaplain Into the rhapel, where tha prisoners were assembled In a body. Tlte chaplain pre sented him to tha company with the re mark that he would eay a few words The governor was a bashful roan, and unaccustomed to epeeohtnnklng. He stam mered. stuttered, blushed, and faltered: "Ladles—er—no—gentle—that Is, men and fellow prisoners—er—l can’t make a speech. In fact, ail—e—*u I can say be ar—er—that I'm ve. y glad indeed to see so many of you here!"

The various hearings coiu.tln more than a hundred ball*, and (he chain alone consists of about ISO pieces.

The lotnl number of sep <rate piece* In an ordinary wheel Is there fore found to be In excels of Soft. When M Is reniemlwred that each one of the parts I* made separately and yet so precisely that II fits to its place exactly, it Is re markable that such n complicated piece of machinery cm be sold ot (he low price# at which even the best wheels now may le bought. —I knew a (nan who trained his dog never to bark, say* a writer In Chambers' Journal Three years were necessary for perfect success In the making of • nut barking 'log. and my friend flattered him self that he had a novelty. But lam In clined to think that he would not have wasted those three years had he known that there are at least three varlttes that never bark—the Australian dog. the Egyp tian shepherd dog and the "llOn-headed" dog of Thibet In some Jai>anese cities a non -!

When In October, if®*, the london Irish Rugby Football Club was mulched lo play Hammersmith Club on (he London County Athletic around. Herne Hill, Lord Russell was invited, and consented to kick off the ball. On arriv ing punctually at the hour appointed he found (hat some of the members of the London Irish team were not on the ground. He waited patiently for some ten or fifteen minute* until nil the pi -era were assembled, nnd then called up Mr. Dyas. the captain of the London frish. and delivered the following homily: ”Capt. Dyas nnd memlsr of the London Irish Football Club: 1 desire to point out lo you that one of your cardinal rules tn life should tie punctuality. Unless you study that rule, whether In business or tn play, you will never be successful men, and I hope that you will take to h*%rt the lesson lam now reading you." The Lord Chief Justice, with the utimuri gravity, then proceeded to kick off the ball. —The oldest paper In China, and prob ably In the world, Is the Pekin Gazette. It publishes official notice* and give* some news, hut without comment It date* at lenst 709 years hack. A study of Its columns reveal* better than any thing else the official corruption of China, for the punishment of corrupt mandarins, as related In the news column*, is ridic ulously Inadequate. All other Chinese newspaper* are published In treaty port*. The reason I* obvious. Under the pro tection of the- foreigner* the publishers nnd editors are secure from prosecution.

It* , ollectians for famine sufferers, etc., are always eue ceetful. More than once the viceroy* h*v tried to suppress it. The Viceroy of of Oheh-Klwng, whom Ihe paper onre at tacked. complained to the Tsung-11-Ya men; hut the foreign office confessed It self unable to euppr. ** the paper. "More over." said Prince Kung. "It Is very In teresting. We read It ourselves here In Pekin." Even the Empress is reported to taste of this forbidden fruit. Advertising Is carried on to a great extent In the Chi nese papers, for the Chinese have not been stow In discovering the vaiue of thl* method of Improving business. The for eign news I* meagre The "answers to correspondents” are Important and very Interesting, and the local news Is exten sive. Home of the Chinese pap'r* are Very de.lded Jingoes, and Ihe present troubles are doubtless In part due to their efforts. —The Celestial Empire of Shanghai con tains an Interesting article on the his torical relation* of Pekin to the Chinese llbiplre, which, the writer say*, have ever been of the most sinister descrip tion From the commencement of Its iw lltlcal career tt has been an obstacle |„ the path of Chins to eminence. From time lo time It was the capital of nnc or other of Ihe Intruding dyngstlcs. whose ephemeral rule market the Weakness of the empire, but It rose to political as cendency only when Khuhlal Khan made It the chief Of the Mongolian Empire aie.iit UNO. Under his two Immediate sue. cesror* It became the capital of the pow erful Yttens, but, being removed from the heart of ihe empire and the Influence of the nation at large.

On hi* death, hi. young son was overthrown by his uncle, snd the capital was again transferred lo Fokin, where It has ever since remained. " 11 tMx began the decadence of the Mln* who called In the Manchu* to aid them against Chinese rebels, with Ihe ul tima* result that the Manchu* seized the thrbue ami founded the present or Tslng dynasty, which retained Pekin a* the capital because of It* proximity to their native home in Manchuria, But the cause* of the decay of the Yuen* and Mings were again at work Pekin was too remote to comprehend the needs of the nation at large, and became a focus of corruption and Intrigue. Forty year* ago the dynasty was saved only by the Intervention of foreign power*, an 1 since then the mlsgovernment of the na tion has Increased. "The old struggles for power that led the Ming* on to their destruction were removed, and a wicked woman, who by an untoward fate had attained lo the office of Regent, having commenced her role by getting rid of one boy Emperor, attempted to continue it by superseding his successor. Unfortunately for the perpetrator, such crimes are In fectious, nnd Ihe woman who had com mitted every orlmc In the Decalogue now find* herself called to account by the evil Influences she had called out of chaos."
