Kntered at the Lo^nTport, Ind..pO8Wffloe u tcoono class mail matter, IB provided by law. THE St. Lonla platform, which met the approval of President McKinley, spoke favorably of Cuban independence. Tbe pUnk reaas thus: We believe that the government of the United States should actively use its influence and good offices to reitore peace and give independence to the Island. In his message to congress President McKinley said: 1 regard the recognition of the belligerency of the Cuban insurgents as now unwise -and, therefore, Inadmissible. The influences that control the aa- miolstratlon are stronger than party pledges. _ THE feeling is generaFthat had Bryan been elected the power of the trusts and the coiporations would hate been broken. As matters now itandtho American people are at the mercy of every corporation that demands government favors. Every trust, every corporation and every •elfl*h interest in the land contributed to the election of McKinley. These forces of greed and corruption •re now in control of the government The sugar trust-alone, will, through favorable legislation, take from the American people not less TO MOTHERS OFJARGE--FAMILIES. Mr*. Pinkham'» Advice Free. In this workaday world few women are so placed that physical exertion is not constantly demanded of them in their daily life. Mrs. Pinkham makes a special appeal to mothers of large families whose work is never done, and many of whom suffer and suffer for lack of intelligent aid. To women, young or old. rich or poor, Mrs. Pinkham, Lynn. Mass., extends her invitation of free advice. Oh, women! do not let your lives be sacrificed when a word from Mrs. Pinkham, at the first approach of weakness, may fill your future years with healthy joy. MBS. A. C. BUULER, 1123 North Albany avenue, near Humboldt Park, Chicago, 111., says: " I am fifty-one years old and have had twelve children, and my youngest is eight years old. I have been suffering for some time with a terrible weakness; that bearing-down feeling was dreadful, and I could not walk any distance. I began the use of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound and Sanative Wash and they have cured me. I cannot praise your medicine enough." iruiu uu» *».i*«v- -«—— j f than 130,000,000 per year of excessive profits The banking corporations expect favors that will net them millions of dollars annually. Every •elfish interest in the land is clamoring for favors. The six and a halt million American voters who could neither be bribed, cajoled, coeiced nor intimidated, feel now that they voted for a man for the presidency who would have stood as an Impregnable barrier against the encroachments of, corporate greed. They still confide in the integrity of the man for whom they cast an uncorrupted ballot. Do w«n.ore Liberty or Not? "Are there three emotions," asks the New York World, "that have a stronger hold upon the American people than love of liberty, enthusiasm for heroism and hatred of tyranny? "Unquestionably no, you will au- ewer. "Then how do you explain this anomaly? «'A.t our very doors, practically within sight of the American people, there has been and Is going forward a war for liberty than which none braver or firmer or more desperate was ever fought. In that v-r a patriot general, with a courage and •kill greater than that of the hero generals of ancient Greece, has held his own in a strip ot territory thirty•ix miles square for ten months with a handful of men against an army of fifty thousand trained soldiers. In that war there has been an exhibition of hideous tyranny unapproaohed in modern times—400,000 men, women and children slowly starved to death by deliberate plan, although they were guiltless of offeuse. "Yet, in face of the apparent facta ahout the temper of the American people and ot the undisputed and indisputable facts about Cuba, the politicians in charge of this government deem it possible and even expedient to snap their fingers at liberty, turn their backs upon heroism and shrug their shoulders at murderous tyranny. "How do you explain it? Are the politicians right in judging the American people? Or are the American people really the lovers of liberty, the admirers of heroism, the haters of tyranny that they pretend to be?" tariff, but their prosperity simply means a concentration of wealth among the few, It is an injury to labor because it takes from the laboring classes a share of their earnings t tt yre without any compensating benefits. The sugar trust will .bag: profits of •30,000,000 a year. The trust employs perhaps 2,000 men in refineries, but who has heard of the trust increasing the wages of labor? The Dingley tariff is a monstrous fraud. It surrenders the taxing powers of the government to private corporations and permits them to rob the people. ^^_ IF there ever was a time when the corporations were In full control of the country, it is now. The protected corporations have already secured what they desired—the power to rob—through the enactment of the Dingley tariff. The banking corporations are now asking railway employees is bett'er than the compulsory one. The system was begun here by the railway companies themselves, the Baltimore and Ohio taking the lead in the matter. On several of the largest roads in the country there is now regular provision against loss to employees resulting from accident, sickness or death. The expense of maintaining the fund is shared between employees and the companies. Employees pay from 75 cents to $3.75 a month each, according to amount of wages. Not quite one-fourth of-all the railway men in the United States are members of the insurance societies. In case of a trainman's death his family receives Jl.OOO if he has paid into the fund .$3 a month. The railway companies, since the formation of the insurance organization, are paying strict attention to the sanitation of offices aud cars. It is expected that in course -of a little time money will have accumulated sufficient to establish a pension fund for retired or permanently disabled members. The war against the national bank in the time of Jackson was aroused because of its bad management, says Matthew Marshall in the New York Sun, and not because of any fault inherent in the system itself. In bis judgment "sound finance would prescribe the establishment of a great national bank, to act as the government's fiscal agent, collect and disburse its revenues, lend out any temporary surplus that might accrue and supply, by borrowing in the open market, temporary deficiencies. Taught wisdom by experience, every European nation has its bank through which it transacts its financial business and suffers none of the inconveniences which our independent treasury entails on us.'' The United States has at this time in Paris at least one artist of whom the nation may be proud. He is Henry O. Tanuer of Philadelphia. He has bean a pupil of Benjamin Constant, under whose tuition he has progressed so rapidly as to have had for several years his pictures on exhibition at the French salon. His subjects are generally selected from some Bible story. This season has witnessed for the young American the crowning triumph of having his 'picture in the salon purchased by the French government for the Luxembourg gallery. We omitted to mention that young Tanner has a black skin. HOUSE. Monday, Dec. 13th., 1897. ; WELL! WELL! WELL!

The wages of 28,000 men employed In New England cotton mills have beeu reduced ten per cent. It BBS only been & little more than five months since that wage-increaser, the Dingley bill, became a law. There is only one thing that has gared the country from a general reduction in wages since the passage of that law. Every man of ordinary common sense knows why a general reduction in wages has not occurred. Short crops abroad Is the one thing and the only thing that has prevented wage reduction. If it were not lor the extraordinary demand for American farm products, busineis would be deader in this country rigtot now than at any time in the recent past. The foreign demand baa increased the price of wheiit and given ua a market for our surplus corn. This has benefitted the farmers and the railroads, aud whatr- •T*T stimulus has been given busi- MM is attributable solely to short crops abroad. Of course the trusts k*T« been benefitted by the Dlnglej Certainly Something New. It was Herbert Spencer who made the cynical observation that the resources of modern philanthropy and medical science as applied to the defective, the weaklings, the diseased and badly born were rapidly hringing about the survival of the unfittest in the human race. The observation is brought to mind by the so called infant incubator devised by a Frenchman, AI. Lion. Being both philanthropic and inventive, he considered to himself how many of the large percentage of infants weakly or prematurely born whose lives are snuffed out quickly might not be saved under proper conditions. Accordingly he incubated in his raiud the baby incubator. It is a glass case containing a spring mattress of the softest, most luxurious construction and downy blankets and linens. It is heated underneath by a pipe of hot water and ventilated by a tube that lets in fresh air. The temperature of the case is kept higher than that of ordinary living rooms and every two hours the mites of humanity are taken from their cages into a room of the same temperature and nourished. The enterprise is sustained through admission fees willingly paid by mortals who wish to gaze on the incubator babies. An infant is considered to be prematurely born unless it weighs at least five and one-half pounds. The inventor of the incubator declares ic possible nearly always to save the life of any infant weighing as much as two pounds, unless it gets a chill before it comes into his matchless glass case. If it weighs less than two pounds, the chances are all against the child's life, even frith the incnbator. Seventy- two per cent of the infants received in the incubatois live. Doubtless in after life many of them will wish tha machine had never been invented, but that they had just been allowed to drop out natural. : The invention is in successful operation in several cities in France and in a few instances in Great Britain. One of the machines has recently been established in 7 New York, and it is the inventor's benevolent hope to see them in •use in all cities for rich and poor alike. Within 18 mouths, says Mr. James M. Scrymser, director of the Pacific Cable company, there will be an ocean telegraph between Hawaii and the United States. Thus will the two lands be joined by electric as well as political bonds. ^_ William of Germany feels very kindly to the United States, it is said. "lis well. William knows what is what after all. _. Bail way insurance for the benefit of road employees is compulsory by state IS IT A TK1FLE? That Common Trouble Acid Dyspepsia or hour Stomach Now Kecognized as a Canse of Serions Disease. Acid dyspepsia, commonly called heart-burn or sour stomach, is a form of indigestion resulting from fermentation of the food. The stomach being too weak to prompty digest it, the food remains until fermentation begins, filling the^stomach with gas, and a bitter, sour, burning taste in the mouth is often .present. This condition soon becomes chronic, and being an every day occurrence, is given but little attention. Because dyspepsia is not immediately fatal many people do nothing for the trouble. Within a recent period a remedy has been discovered prepared solely to cure dyspepsia and stomacb troubles. It is known as Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets and it is now becoming rapidly used and prescribed as a radical cure for every form of dyspepsia. Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets have been placed before the public and are sold by druggists everywhere at SO cents per package. It is prepared by the Stuart Co., Marshall, Mich., and while it promptly and effectually restores a vigorous digestion, at the some time Is perfectly harmless aud will not in jure the most delicate stomach, but on the contrary by giving perfect digestion strengthens the stomach, Improves the appetite and makes life worth living.

When asked why Sam was not supported while Venezula was an official reply from the state department said: "The two cases are in no way similar. The Venezuelan case was a. dispute over a territorial boundary regulated hy treaty. The Haytian case was a demand for damages for mis treatment of a German subject. No support was promised and no promise violated." Further than this the state department declines to make any explanation. Secretary Sherman's opinions are well known. He has declared that the demands of Germany in the Lueders case were just and proper. He says the case is strictly analogous to the case of the British consular agent at Corinto, Nicaragua, where England seized the custom house and held it smtil the damages_were forthcominjz- Pando Arrives at Manzanlllo.
