SENATOK GORMAN'S term as senator from Maryland does not expire until March 4, 1899. THIS is great weather for the growing wheat. A good wheat crop Is worth more to Casa county than an oil pool or a Klondkye mine. Everybody shares ID the benefits that follow a good wheat crop. MARK HANNA accounts for the reverse* sustained by the Republicans on a peculiar theory. He says that "good times have made the people careless." Their carelessness came near winding up Haond'a political cvreer. THE surplus in the treasury has been gradually dwindling down unrler the operations of the Dlngley tariff. If fche gold conspirators were Inclined to make a gold raid on the treasury they could force a bond sale ID two weeks. HAKNA had a very close call. He came near falling outaide the breastworks. A legislature that had a Ke- publlcan majority of eighty-five on joint ballot last year has been changed to one having but five majority on joint ballot. A like change in Indiana will give the legislate to the Democrats with a good working majority. THK United States cannot much longer delay Intervention in Cuban affairs. The war is no nearer an end than it was at the beginning of Mc- Klnley'8 administration. Humanity demands that our government takes a stand in favor of bringing it to a close. The war has already entailed death, destruction and woe. Spain should either subjugate the people quickly or abandon the island to the patriots, who are struggling for liberty and Independence. ' SENATOR THURSTON, of Nebraska, •who represents the Interests of the Pacific railroads in the senate Is quite confident that William Jennings Bryan will not be the Democratic candidate for president in 1900. He Is the same man who predicted that Tracy's defeat for mayor of Greater New York would mean the disruption of the Republican party. Neither of hl§ predictions is likely to be verified. The Kepublican party will be backed mt the next election by the forces of organized greed and William Jennings Bryan will in all probability be the opposing candidate. The corporations and the money syndicates have not yet won a decisive victory. It is the general impression that the forces of organized wealth reached the zenith of their power in 1896, THE New York World, which sup- potted McKlnley for president, insist that the recent elections indicates that the people are not satisfied with Republican success last fall. It says': "The remarkable reversion of this city and state to the Democrats, and the rebuke to Republican plutocracy •nd bosslsm In Ohio, Pennsylvania and other states, prove that the American people are not satisfied with their choice of erlls last year. They evidently apprehend less danger from a menace to their currency than from a blow at their liberties. The craze of the Republicans since they attained power, as manifested In acts, is more deeply resented than was the mere craze of words In the Democratic campaign last year." PKKSIDKNT McKiNLEY, la his Cincinnati speech, asked the question: "What will make the nation strong?" Governor Leedy, of Kansas, is the first one to make answer. His reply is a vigorous one' He says: "Why not ask how can we secure for the average man his fair share of the wealth he creates, instead of seeing it swell the coffers of trusts, combines and corporations? "The way to make our citizenship most useful and effective is to break the force of ancient prejudice, direct the citizens' attention to the evils of government by injunction and by financial syndicates. "If the children of great cities ilke New York and Chicago coull have the tame educational advantages Kansas provides for hers, much would be gained. It the nation Is to remain •trong, Its common people must thrive. A real Democracy cannot maintain an aristocracy of wealth that hypnotizes courts, congresses cabinets. THBBB Is not much danger of our public Institutions, such as post- offlOM and sub-treMurlea, being looted la tht manner anticipated by Oen. Mile*. The humblest citizen Is Do yon know the reason whyyou will po to the hospital, my poor friend? Because you have allowed yourself to go from bad to worse. You did not know that that heat, swelling- and tenderness in your left side were all signs of congestion of the ovary. Any intelligent woman could hare told you that congestion is fatal to tne uterine system, and that an ovary congested leads to tumor formation, and that you were in awful danger. Now you will have to undergo the operation of ovariotomy, the cutting out of the ovary. Yes, vou will recover, at least I hope you will; but you will never be quite the same woman again. Congestion of the ovaries is fatal to health. If you have any such symptoms be advised In time; take a medicine of specific powers! You can find none better than Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, prepared especially to meet the needs of woman's sexual system. You can get it at any good druggist's. Following we publish a letter from a woman in Milwaukee, which relates how she was cured of ovarian trouble: "Dear Mrs. Pinkham:—I suffered with congestion of the ovaries and inflammation of the womb, I had been troubled with suppressed and painful menstruation from a girl. The doctors told me the ovaries would have to.be removed. I took treatment two years to escape an operation, but still remained in miserable health in both body and mind, expecting to part with my reason each eoming month. Aftea- using one bottle »f Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound and a package of Sanative Wash I was very much relieved. I continued to use your remedies until cured. The last nine months have been passed in perfect good health. Tbis,l know, I owe entirely to the Vegetable Compound. My gratitude is great, indeed, to the one to whom so many women owe their health and happiness."—Mas. F. M. KMAPP, 563 Wentworth Ave., Milwa* kee. Wis. interested In preventing such an out-1 rage. The real danger that confronts the people comes from being looted by unjust legislation. Every law that gives a trust an opportunity to take a certain per cent of the earnings of labor to add to its store of illegitimate profits is more to be dreaded than the desperado who would conspire to rob a postoffice. The sugar trust openly admits that it buys legislation with campaign contributions. Its methods are more polite than the methods of the common robber, but its corrupting influence is more harmful than the open work of a bold bank robber. If congress will destroy the trusts, it will aave the people more money in a year than all the Gatling guns that might be posted on our post- office and sub-treasuries would save us in a century. Congress encourages robbery by encouraging the formation of trusts, the sole purpose of whose existence is robbery-. Expurgating "Los Miserables." For downright intellectual illumination commend us to the Philadelphia school board. What it does not know about the proper kind of books for a girls' high school nobody need want to know. The principal of the girls' high school presented a list of textbooks for the approval of the intelligent board. Among them was an edition of Victor Hugo's "Les .Miserables." The great Frenchman's masterpiece had been abridged and specially prepared for school use, but the Philadelphia board did not even know that. They had heard somebody say "Les Miserables" was a naughty, naughty book. The board members mostly had not read the book themselves, whether because they were too virtuous or too stupid does not appear. One of them said in open meeting that the story was too "shocking" for anything. Judging from their subsequent action, a majority of the board members had not even heard of "Lea Miserables, " but when they heard this man say it was shocking they voted against it on general principles. The story got into the newspapers, those terrible foes to the peace of mind of respectable citizens who make a bad break and don't know it First a stare, then a broad grin, then a peal of laughter rippled even through Philadelphia, until finally it percolated the dense skulls of the enlightened school board that something vras wrong. Then they met and agreed to permit the expurgated Miserables" to appear on their list Somebody ought to prepare an expurgated edition of the family almanac fox those nice old gentlemen, the Philadelphia school board. A Boston man wants schools established for the cultivation of newsboys' Yoioea. That individual would do well to inquire within and start a school tor the cultivation of the average Boston male and female. Concluded from lit psge. Booker Washington's Work.

Certainly the colored Washinjjton is leading bis people into liberty and enlightenment. His plan is mainly to give his students a good common school education and then fit them with some tra.de whereby they may step from the institute into an industrial pursuit that will yield them a good liivng. All occupations from farming to tailoring are taught. Whatever students do they must do in perfection, so that their services will be wanted and paid for. Here is a lesson for white folk as well move on and await the arrival o.f the for black. A large proportion of .the next victim.

They are still at large and no trace has yet been obtained of them. Wichita, Kan., Nov. S.—Bud Wilkerson, an Indian Territory desperado, inaugurated a new system of highway robbery when he rode Into Derwood, I. T., levied a 50-cent per capita tax on the citizens and proceeded to collect the same at the muzzle of a rifle. He tied his horse in front of a drug store, and without attracting attention stationed himself in a stairway adjacent to the store. The lirst man who happened was quietly commanded to halt and "6\g up a half dollar." The request emphasized with the gun was complied with and the modest sum demanded left the victim In doubt as to whether it'was a joke or genuine holdup Wilkerson would order his man to trouble or do uoz kcow how to do their Work well. What Booker Washington's school is accomplishing in the south we learn best from the story of one or two students as given by Air. Galloway. One of thu first graduates from the institute was a girl who went into a remote country neighborhood and became a teacher. To that benighted spot she has proved a veritable Moses to lead her people into plenty and enlightenment. When she went to the place, there were only three months' school and a tumble down log hut for a schoolhouse. She induced her people to become provident and contribute anything they could spare—eggs, chickens, fruit, vegetables or labor—to turn into money to lengthen the school term. Year by year improvements were added. She has staid in the same plac ever since she began. Now the school term is eight months, and the children get their instruction in a neat and roomy frame building. Encouraged by her, the people have become thrifty, are the owners of small farms and live in neat frame dwellings. They are accumulating property rapidly under the inspiration this one girl teacher brought to them from Tnskegee. One of the young men graduates of tho institute was a dairy expert. A friend got a place for him as butter mater in a creamery whose owners did not know be was black till they saw him. They demurred at first, but they needed a man very much, and he was allowed to begin work. When the butter he made brought 2 cents a pound more in tho market than the owners had ever received before, they concluded the color of the butter maker did not make so much difference. Anarchists from Europe are not generally welcome in America. An exception, however, we make in case of Prince Krapotkiue, the Russian whose services are even more eminent to sci ecce than to anarchy. Whether writing on science or on politics the prince uses such charming English that most of us could well go to school to him. He bus been the friend alike of Darwin and of Louise Michel, and wbile he takes up the cause of the wild eyed, unbathed European anarchist who hatches plots iu ratholes he is actually descended from a noble family that lived daintily and cleanly before the Romanoffs themselves were heard of. He has been arrested in almost every country of Europe and has had hairbreadth 'scapes that would fill six dima novels. Despite his villainous politics Krapotkine is the mildest mannered man alive and apparently would not hurt a fly Anarchy iu th> lectures he has been delivering ui Amcr ica assumes the form of a mild and bt- neficent socialism.

Boise. .Ida.. Nov. 8.—Xews was received Saturday night to the effect that the mail between Meadows and Warrens was robbed by masked men. The registered letters were rifled. It is not known how much money was secured. Warrens is a flourishing mining camp and it is supposed that considerable currency is sent in the mail. INCENDIARIES BURN A HOT1-X. San Re- Marco, at St. Augustine. Fin., duced to Ashes and Embers. Jacksonville, Fla., Nov. S.—A special from St. Aug-ustine, to The Times Union and Citizen says: The Hotel San Marco, one of the finest and most com- modius hotel properties in this city, was burned to the ground yesterday morning, entailing a loss of about $250,000, with less than $50,000 insurance. It was a few minutes past 3 o'clock a. m. when Jake Masters, from the Ontagus residence, discovered fire in the boiler room of the hotel. He immediately fired a pistol and notified Edward McBride, who has charge of the property, and who lives in the hotel. It svas then discovered that the fire was incendiary and that the incendiaries had cut the lire i»l) rope; and steam whistles had to b« resorted to. One engine reached the scene, but it3 work was delayed, owing to the firebugs having cut holes in the suction pipes which supply water from the hydrant and screwed up the couplings so tig-ht that time was lost in loosening them. The flames spread from woodshed and holler room, to the kitchen and then to the dining room and theatre. These structures were four stories high and to the west of but connecting with the main building, which was six stories high, with towers in the center and on each wing. Hundreds of men assisted in removing tK? furnilure from the main floor and a large quantity was taken cut, the main floor being almost entirely bare before the fire drove the workers away. There were no guests in the hotel. REPUBLICANS HAVE THE VOTES. Ohio Legislative Dispute Settled iu Court- Other Election Notes. Columbus, O., Nov. 8.—The only important development In the status of the next general assembly was the decision in the Wood county case, which once more removes that county from the doubtful list to the Republican column. The court instructed the election supervisors of Wood county to canvass the returns from the disputed precinct, which gives the election to Captain O. P. Norris, the Republican candidate for representative, by 31 plurality. This news was received by Chairman Nabh, of the Republican state committee, with evident satisfaction, though it was cot different from what he had* expected. The decision had a significance which could not be expressed, inasmuch as it put an end to'the talk of other contessts on the same grounds. The headquarters of the Democratic state committee at the Great Southern were beir.g dismantled, only one room being- retained for the use of Secretary Karb and Allen O. Myers. In an interview Myers said: "The situation is the same now as it was Wednesday morning. The Democrats have the senate by a majority of two. The house stands 5S Republicans to 51 Democrats. McConville will go on claiming until he goes back to Washington, but he won't do any good. We're beaten and I knew It Wednesday." New Tork, Xov. 8.—The Republicans figpre out 7S men intheassembly of whom five are anti-Platt men. A majority of the assembly is 76. Chairman Dar.forth, of the Democratic committee, apportions the members as follows: Democratic members, 74; Platt Republicans, 68: Citizens' Union, 2; anti-Platt Republicans, S. Baltimore, Xov. S.—The board of supervisors of election of Somerset county met Saturday and found that 495 ballots lacked the signature of the judges. There is a conflict in the law, one section declaring that no ballot shall be counted which lacks the signature of a judge, while another states that such, ballots shall be counted. It will probably be taken to the court? by the Democrats. ^ END OF THE CHICAGO HORSE SHOW. Great Success from a Social and Eqoina. Standpoint—Financial Loss.

It has secured this fame simply by printing an occasional editorial paragraph criticising in technical fashion the habiliments of royal personages as they appear at public functions, etc. Its latest utterance of this sorfcis as follows: "We think it •was a pity his royal highness the Duke of York on his visit to Ireland decided to have a breast pocket in bis coat, as it is apt to give the left forepart a rather crowded, overdone appearance, and as he has not yet attained to the proportions of his father we do not think the forepart was wide enough to allow of this, and though it has been arranged as judiciously as could be yet the end of the pocket and the top button are too near together to be in keeping with good taste. Undoubtedly his royal highness was one of the best dressed gentlemen, of the viceregal party.
