Entered at the Lognnsport, Ind.,po«tofflce ae lecona class mail matter, as provided by law. EXCEPT in matters pertaining to tbetanft and Hawaii, President Mc- Klnley is following closely la the steps of Cleveland. THE very satisfactory news comes from Washington tbao the Hawaiian annexation scheme will be defeated. So certain is defeat that the treaty ma> be withdrawn. Bub two Demo cratlc senators favor it—Morgan and Gorman. coin bonds of the government sell away above par The paper money issued by the government, passes current everywhere, and no one except the gold conspirators question the ability of tbe government to pay them. There are two forces working to fonse their retirement— tbe bankers and bondholders. The former desire the privilege of furnish- log the entire^upply of piper money and tbe latter desire tiiat the noL- interest bearing deot of the nation be changed to one that bears interest. What the government should do is to levy sufficient taxes from every available source to pay o2 the bonded debt. It should be extinguished before the non-Interest bearing debt is liquidated. IT is doubtful It Samuel O. Pickens has ever deserved the name of Democrat. He has posed as such because In his capacity of corporatkn lawyer it has been his interest to do go. He is cold blooded and his sympathies were never with the plain people. EX-MIOTSTEK TAYLOR is vigorously outspoken in opposition to the views expressed by President McKinley on the Cuban question. He has a good idea of Spain's purposes and he declares that the plan of settlement proposed is the same old game that has been played by Spain before. MARK BANNA admits that his repent campaign for senator cost him 115,000, In Other words, half his salary for his sir years' term as senator if reelected has bsen expended in an efloro to secure a place for which he is not fitted either by education orj legislative experience. But the trusts will recoup Hanna. WHEAT touched the dollar mark again in Chicago yesterday. It looks as though the bulls are going on a goring expedition. The wheat supply Is rapidly passing into the hands of speculators. The heavy receipts from the northwest during the past few months indicate that the wheat supply is rapidly passing out of the hands of the farmers. THE silence of Speaker Keed leaves the country in doubt as to what legislation "may be expected during the present session of congress. If the country knew what Boss Reed desires in the way of currency reform or in tbe matter of Cuban affairs, we should know what to expect for his rule is law. But he has maintained an ominous silence. EnglaiJd confers titles on her gifted poets, scientists and even actors. Russia made nobles of those two gifted musical artists, Jean and Edonard de Reszke. She ccrald not ennoble them, for they had ennobled themselves, but she could make official recognition of this fact America alone of the civilized nations has no title of honor to bestow on any of h-2r children, however gifted, however noble, however great the services they have rendered her. France is a republic without official titles of nobility, yet France honors those worthy by conferring on them the ribbon and the cross of the Legion of Honor. Our government seriously needs some order of merit with which to reward those worthy. Americans are glad, all bnt a few sham and toadyish Americans, that we have not and never can have any titles of nobility in this country. But a simple, modest certificate or star or ribbon from the government to those who have conferred distinction on the American name would be eminently appropriate and prized above gold. It is not to our credit that jven Thomas A. Edison cannot secure from his government any official recognition of his services to science. GERMANY has taken a slice of Chinese territory, Japan got the rich Island of Formosa and Russia has obtained possession of valuable harbor privileges along the coast of northern China. Now France wants a share of the Celestial kingdom and has sent an armed force to get it. Great changes may be expected In China within the course of a few years. UNDER a recent act of the legislature watchers are excluded from election boards during the counting of the ballots. A good many men Tlew this change with alarm. There |g now no longer any doubts about frauds having been committed at the elections in this state in 1896, mnd It is openly charged at Indianapolis that in several instances election boards were bribed. Under the secret ballot law, vote- buying can no longer be carried on successfully, but without watchers of the count, election boards can be bribed and the vote of a whole precinct corruptly manipulated. This being true, nothing more important depends upon those encrusted with party management than the selection •f incorruptible election officers. PRESIDENT MCKINLEY has not given up hope of reaching an international agreement In regard to silver coinage. In his message he says: Our special envoys bave not made their final report, as further negotiations between the representatives of this government and the governments of othar countries are pending and in contemplation. They believe tbat doubts which have been raised In certain quarters respecting the possibility of maintaining the stability of the parity between the metals and the kindred questions may yet be solved by further negotiations. Those who desire international bi metallism must expect to cross swords with the gold conspirators who seek to force the world into adopting gold monometallism. IT Is hard for the average voter to understand why paper money Issued by the government Is not better than paper money issued by banks. If the Halted States were a bankrupt nation it* promised to pay might not be good. IQ material resources It in today tbe richest nation on earth and Its interest bearing obligations we away above par. The Modern np to date physicians believe that one of the mistakes of Moses was lis diagnosis of the disease leprosy. They say that other skin diseases were classed by the Hebrew lawgiver under the head of leprosy, and that this ailment is really neither contagious nor incurable. Medical science in our time s able to cope with the dread Biblical scourge. The first elements of the cure are absolute cleanliness, plenty of bathing and healthful and hygienic surroundings. Then tbe patient must have something to occupy his mind agreeably. He must be given at once to understand that he can be cured and that the future has hope for him, as for any other person. Leprosy is a disease of vico and filth and unhygienic surroundings. Remove these all and fill the pa- ;ieut's mind with moral purity and his body with physical purity, and the cure \s begun. ^^ _ _ \Thaso \vho have seen prints of the remarkable portrait, of the president's mother paiutod ;Vbout the time of Mc- Kiulcy's election will readily call it to ruincl. She was 88 years old at tho time she sat for the artist, yet age could not destroy the contour and expression of the noble face. AIother McKinley, sitting thero in her chair, looked like a grand dame of the olden time, the mother of a race of kings, and she was as strong and noble as she looked. She endured the journey to Washington for the inauguration with less fatigue than •was experienced by many of the younger women. A spirit so strong, kindly and sincere, an intellect so vigorous and clear as hers, could not do otherwise than keep her body hale and in good health down to extreme age. There was no weakness or whining or complaining about her. Such women as she, strong, grand and true, are heroic mothers of the sons of a mighty republic. Men are naturally unequal. The condition of tho red men of the Indian Territory proves that. Some of them are much shrewder than others and are long headed enough to observe from the white man's civilization how much power the possession of wealth gives an individual. Taking the hint quickly, these long headed savages, although a small proportion of the whole people, have managed by fair means and foul to possess themselves of the larger portion of the best land in the territory. Thus they are red skinned millionaires, while the common Indian is only a base menial. \Vho shall say longer that the Indian is incapable of achieving the highest civilization? In the very moment of her triumph over Greece it looks as if the end for Turkey had set in. Her Albanians are in revolt, a demand has been made on her for reparation far injury to American missionaries and Russia's thumb is pressing heavily upon her tiroat. Her treasury is empty. She cannot crawl out of giving ns satisfaction for damages to our missions in Armenia. To say chat the porte is not responsible for them is to acknowledge that Turkey cannot control the acts of her soldiers, for it was they who did junch of the pillaging in Armenia. 'Why cannot congress order at once a survey for a railroad by the shortest ronte from, Jnnean or some point on the south coast where there is a good har bor up through Alaska, terminating at i place on the boundary line near Daw son City? How to Bru»Ti the Teeth. The proner way to clean the teeth is to brash them from tbe gums to the crown of the' toonh. In this way the particles of food that; are lodged between the teeth will be dislodged. If the teeth are only brushed lengthwise, as is generally the case, the food, instead of being brushed out, will be more firmly lodged than ever. One should keep a skein of dental silk always ready to pass between the teeth and clean "them effectively from anything tbat has got between them which the toothbrush cannot reach. If the occasional use of a toothpick is necessary, use one made of qaill, buc if the teeth are properly attended to such an instrument will be useless. ~ How to Dre« Smooth Furs. For this purpose dissolve 3 ounces of salt in a pint of soft water, sponge the inside of the skin with this salt water until it is quite saturated, then lay the fur face downward upon a straight board or the top of a table and stretch it out as much as possible, fastening down with a few small tacks. It will not hurt the fur to place it to dry within a short distance of the fire, but it must be noted that the fur has to be quite dry before being removed from the board, otherwise the process will be a failure. , FieUl Trials at Danville.

Mrs. McKinley Slowly Dying. Canton, 0.. Dec. 9.— All day yesterday the children of Mrs. McKinley were near her bedside watching for indications of hopeful change. They were disappointed. There was no ray of light on the face which betokened retuming-con- sciousness. She has been lying in lethargic repose, as if in sleep most of the time. She is gradually, but surely growing weaker. ____ X*ft His Bride for Klondike. English, Ind., Dec. 9.— A sensation •was created in this community by tbe disappearance of Oliver Flaimagan, who •was married scarcely one week ago.

The young bride is almost distracted at her husband's desertion, and can suggest no cause for his action." PIANOS Nothing More Acceptableas a Holiday Present than a fine Piano.
