THE Republican newspaper? receive their suggestions for attacking Bryan frcm a syndicate of special correspondents In Washington and the work Is paid for DY money contributed by corporations. Two waeks sjro the statement was sent out 'ihat Bryan had been requested to litay out of Ohio. The Kepubllcan newspapers printed -the story gleefully.Bryan Is over In Ohio this week and the Democratic hosts have been thrilled with his matchless eloquence. This same syndicate of paid liars have been sending out reports charging Bryan with exacting large sums for making political speeches. They have charged him with riding over the country on a free pass, and In every way sought to belittle his Influence. But Bryan has not suffered by these attacks. His character can not be successfully assailed.and the sincerity of the man in his contest for the rights of the common people against \,he encroachments of concentrated wealth is unquestioned. Currency Reform. Secretary Gage has submitted his plan for reforming the currency to the other members of the cabinet. His plan is to issue gold bonds and oate up the greenbacks. In other words, his plan is to change a nou- Interest bearing debt of nearly $500,000,000 into an Interest bearing debt, and to pay both principal and interest of the debt in gold. His plan contemplates turning over to the national banis exclusively the privilege of Issuing paper money. Seemingly the real purpose of the plan is first to change the bonded indebtedness of the United States from a bond payable in coin, which means either gold or silver, to a bond payable in gold. This would mean a further degredation of sliver, delay the restoration of bimetallism and strengthen the con spiracy to make gold the sole measure of value throughout the world. In the second place it would provide more bonds with which to perpetuate the national banks. It would give them authority to issue paper money to the face value of the bonds deposited. His plan also provides for a reduction of the tai on national bank circulation. If banking is profitable under the present law it will make the business much more so under the secretary's plan. Dana. In their gumming tip of the character of tne greatest editor of his time the reviewers all agree on one point — Charles A. Dana was the New York Sun and the last representative of that journalism in which the editor made the paper. Now the paper is made by the business manager. Newspaper owners take more pride in their advertisement pages than in their editorial page. But Dana's tremendous intellectuality, tremendous personality, pervaded every part of The Sun. He had a memory equal to that of Gladstone. No man in America had a mind more abundantly or more accurately stored -with facts. There are many mere bookworms, but Dana combined with his book knowledge a power of language the rarest and feelings as quick and warm as those of a schoolboy. The combination made him irresistible. The English used in the New York Sun was something for all Americans to be proud of and to imitate. Its accuracy of statement in matters of fact gave rise to the famous saying, "If you see it in The Sun, it's so." Dana's character apparently underwent a curious revolution. He started in life a radical of the radicals. Human iberty, freedom of thought, new and advanced ideas, he advocated with fiery loqufuce. As the world goes, he was unsuccessful. He found, as manyanoth- r has found and will find, that working or human liberty and advanced thought When he took Sun, after he SEAL PR[$EHTION, Tripartite Conference at Washington Thinks It Has Hit ot> a Practicable Plan. GREAT AUCTION OF- MOEAL PEESSUEE 05 JOHN BULL, Arbor Day. If Governor Mount is correct in his observations this Is tne day to plant trees. -Not only this year but each succeeding year should Arbor day be observed. In speaking of this Important matter says: •My observations Governor Mount during recent journeys in Carious parts of the stare tend to emphasize the need of the geonral and practical observance of Arbor day, I have observed that many country school houses are desti tute of shade. The lot upon which the house stands should be planted with trees, thus affording the chil dren cool and refreshing shade, a well as adding attractiveness to the •urroundings. "Beauty, comfort and attraction might be afforded many country homes now more or less desolate through the planting of trees, trail log vines, shrubs and flowers. The destruction of our native forests has left barren and unsightly many wast< places that cannot be cultivated In the. ordinary way. It would add beauty and value to the farm If thet waste places were planted with forest traes. While the larger citle are giving attention to parks, thus lid not pay iu money, lold of the New York had failed in a newspaper enterprise in Jbicago, he had nothing left buc the ndomitable will and the splendid in- ellect. Warned by bitter experiences, he then seemed to turn his back on all hat had gone before and went in for money and worldly success. He got loth, in abundance. Tho radicalism of his youth, if he still retained it, he kept for private circulation. His wonderful will and fiery energy nabled him to retain even his physical •igor until the age of 78. He was loved as few men have been loved in private ife. His grievous fault in the conduct if his newspaper was a vindictiveness hat never forgot or forgave and never et up. Except for this The Sun combined the best features of both the old md the new journalism. Take him all in all, its veteran editor was that rarest, greatest and most useful of mortals, an old tinier who kept up with the new time. A peculiar feature of the fight between Professor Schroeder of the Wash- ngton Roman Catholic university, who waots European ideas to,rule there, and Archbishop Keane, who wants American ideas to prevail, has come out in •he course of the contest. It seems that Dr. Schroeder has a personal interest in the contest not at first suspected outsida He insists on his right to "personal liberty" in his conduct, that right involving the privilege of going into beer sa- ,oons and drinking whenever and wherever lie pleases. This conduct is not at all in accordance with American ideas of personal liberty for a college professor and a priest, although America is a free country. Consequently Dr. Schroeder has scandalized and distressed those who want the American Catholic university to be a light to all the world. They recognize that although it might be proper for a reverend college professor to sit in a saloon drinking beer in rermany, if indeed it is so, such action would shock American sentiment and injure the university. It is rather odd that in this case the laxity of idea is not at all American, but strictly Euro pean. _^ The British government is intensely interested in a stable par exchange between gold and silver, just as much interested as the United States and France can possibly be, it says. Nevertheless, greatly to the distress of Salisbury and his little cabinet, they do not see their way clear to taking pait in the :international money conference. The pressure of London brokers on the British government and on the Bank of ]3nglaud and the submissive attitude of these in consequence show again how the world is governed by the money lending power. In Germany it is the same. The German government sides with England on the silver question in England's present attitude. "Where and when this season was that traditional equinoctial storm which some people believe in as they believe in carrying a potato in the pocket for rheumatism?

Washington, Oct.- 29,— In reliable quarters it is stated that the conference between Russia, Japan and the United States, now proceeding here in reference to sealing- in the Behring sea and the North Pacific, has advanced to an important stage, and that a proposition has been reduced to writing which, if accepted, will bring about a complete change in the sealing question. Tiie proposition is said to be acceptable to the United States. It is understood to be acceptable similarly to the Russian delegates now here, but in view of the restrictions placed upon them by their credentials it has been thought desirable to cable to St. Petersburg for final j instructions. The, Japanese delegates \ are understood to have felt at first that the proposition would not be in their interest, but on fuller conference Fujita determined to cable the substance of the proposition to his government, accompanying it with a. recommendation for its anceptanne. Proposition That Han Been Made. From reliable sources it is understood •jiat the proposition provides for the material limitation or entire suspension of pelagic sealing — or sealing on the high seas. Such a decisive step, if agreed to by Russia, Japan- and the United States would, it is understood would not involve any concerted move frto menace the claims of Great Britain and Canada to the right of taking seals on the high seas, but would rather be a proposition expressive of the conclusions of the three most Interested powers that in the interests of humanity and the preservation of the seal herds of their respective governments, all nations— including Great Britain and her colony, Canada — should unite to preserve the seals. AnKlo-Knssian Modus Vivendi. In the case of Russia it developed that to some extent her action was conditioned by a modus vivendi made between Great Britain and Russia about the time the Paris court of arbitration was Slitting and covering the course of those two countries concerning the fur seals on Russian islands and .surrounding waters. But little had been known of this modus until the conference met. Under it a zone of neutral water is established thirty miles wide surrounding the Russian fslands. within which Great Britain agreed to suspend pelagic sealing. While this '.vas of material advantage to Russia it was felt that any proposition for the entire suspension of pelagic sealing, even beyond thirty miles, would have to be reconciled with the modus Vivendi. >'O SKALS Oy JAPANESE JSt-ANDS.

One of the Japanese delegates made it clear that Japan had more interest in catching seals than in preserving them. Moreover, it appears that Japan m longer had any fur seals, although -her possession of sea otters— an animal like the seals— was considerable. When Japan's attitude was thus denned the general feeling with the conference was that the United States and Russia were united ir the view of protecting the seals by energetic measures, while Great Britain and Japan occupied substantially ti.:- opposite position. Owing to Japan's view of the subjcet the opinion of the seal experts was ;;.nd before the Japanese * delegates. This opinion was to the effect that while Japan's seal possessionswere little or nothing at the present time, yet that by adequate protection of the seals her decimated rookeries would be restored. This expert view appears to have been convincing on the Ja.panese delegates, for Fujita cabled the final proposition to Japan, and accompanied it with his favorable recommedation. Throughout the deliberations tl-.e"e was no evidence of a desire to make ar issue with Great Britain, or to t-.V:e :r.:y actlon offensive in character or likely tc summarily abridge her right?- It was- recognized by the conferrees that as thf high seas were governed by the v<?'>i- established rules of international 'av; no step should be taken in limiting seal-killing on the high sea? wit!- u; endeavoring to secure the co-operation of ail parties concerned, particularly Great Britain. Instead, therefore, of the proposition taking the form of a decisive move by the three governments :r. reposition to Great Britain it was frarr.i-fl on the theory that the three powers ha' 7 an actual interest in the seals v.-.hkh •were bred on their islands, and that P.:: other governments should aid in the r-'- r -'- tection of this property, even -,vlun it was found on the high seas.

A.S they passed from room to room he explained how each department was managed from the manufacture to the sale. Lastly he took the young man to the advertising department and addressed him. in this fashion: "Now, my son, you are young, while I am growing old, and I have here laid the foundation of a great advertisement which in all human probability cannot be used until 50 years hence. You will notice that I have here collected'about 1,000,000 photographs of children who have been reared on Colic's food, and I have a staff of clerks whose sole duty it is to keep track of these children, watch their development and keep their biographies up to date. To you this may seem an unwarranted expense, but 1 think you will change your mind when you grasp the magnificence of my plan. According to the theory of probabilities, within 50 years one of these children will become president of the United States, and think what an ad. it will be for us to be able to get out a book showing the life of a great man from Colic's food to government pap or from the mtrsing bottle to the treasury." The young man bowed his head in admiration and for the first time in his life understood the genius that made his father a multimillionaire.-—New York Journal. THEM FITS.

Spry Block AND A Itenoocratic Prince, Several years ago Prince Oscar of Sweden, a nephew of the present king, | shocked court circles by declaring that; he intended to marry Miss Ebba Monk, | a young lady of patrician birth, but yet far below him in rank. The king protested and even refused to permit the marriage, whereupon Prince Oscar declared that he would yield his title and resign all rights of succession, but that marry Miss Monk he certainly would. The marriage was celebrated in. due time, and Prince Oscar has never been seen in the royal circles since. The king and queen have maintained friendly but distant relations with their democratic nephew, who is known simply as Prince Oscar, and who is immensely popular with the people because of his philanthropy. Prince Oscar and his wife have been devoted to.causes of charity and benevolence, but recently have created $ second sensation by joining the ranks of Ihe Salvation Army. The prince and nis wife hold regular open air meetings according to the methods of the army. The prince exhorts, and he and his wif* lead in the street singing. How to Care HydrophoDl*. There is a very simple method of curing both hydrophobia and that form of epilepsy which is so frequently mistaken for it, which cure is known as the Bnisson treatment, and is effected by forcing the poison through the pores of the skin by profuse perspiration. In cases where convulsions have already taken place the patient should enter a Tapor bath, with temperature from 127 degrees to 140 degrees R, and remain there until all symptoms of hydrophobia have disappeared. Where these baths •re used as a preventive one should be taken in each of seven consecutiTe days. This remedy is so simple that if no Russian or Turkish bath can. be had it in quite possible to gain the desired remit in any room by excluding the air •8 much as poasible, placing patient in » chair over a lighted oil stove on which fa • pun of hot water and, hairing wrapped all in blankets, allowing the patient to sweat out the poison.
