Ex-Secretary Carlisle is tbe attorney for Plerpont Morgan, who managed the bond sales made during Cleveland's administration. It is reported that he gets a salary of $25,000 per year. IT is announced tn<u speaker Keed will take a bold stand in favor of economy. If he does, we shall have economy because Eeed controls tbe legislation of this country. It will be most fortunate for the country if the man entrusted with such colossal power shall use it for the public good. GENERAL WEYLER expressed a willingness to lead an army against the United States. There is not much danger from a general, who, at the head of 200,000 Spanish soldiers, could not win a victory over an army of poorly equipped Cubans. Weyler's plan of starving people into subjection would not work well in the United States. JUST as Mr. Pullman lay dead, a town built exactly in the same way as the city he named was being constructed in Sierra county, California. It is called Overton, after the superintendent of a lumber company, which owns the virgin forest of 40,000 acres of pine in which it has been raised. It Is estimated that, cutting the wood at the rate of 25,000,000 feet a year, It will take sixty years to exhaust the forest. The town Is built on the most model principles. §piraturs are working industriously to Induce congress lo change tne conditions of the banded debt by substituting gold bonds for coin bonds They §eem to be impressed with the fact that their schemes mast be carried out now or never. IT !s expected that President Me- E.lnley will, before the close of the week, name Judge Paxaon, of Pennsylvania, for member of the Interstate commerce commission to succeed Coi. Wm. R,. .Morrison Tula McKinley will do against his better judgment to fulfill a promise made to the railroads by Mark Hanna, The railway corporations were promised that they should name a successor to Col. Morrison. They have chosen Paxson. He is a maa who can be relied upon to serve the railway corporations. He has served them bafore AND now comes the fearful news that there Is danger in hand-shaking. Staphylococcl are the things that cause the trouble. It is said that evers human hand has an unlimited aupply of this stuff on it. If the doctors keep on finding bad things in human kind, each individual will ha veto flock to himself. Kissing has been proscribed by the doctors and now hand-shaking must stop as • means of preventing the spread of disease. Why Is it, it such dangers lurk in the human body, that everybody who stole a kiis or t ook the glad hand has not fallen a victim to the ever-present microbe? The revelations of the doctors is enough to set people to hard drinking as a means of destroying microbes. Delay is tBe best Spain can hope fol in the Cuban case. Ic is her last resort. While the Liberal ministry are discussing the project of allowing Cuba to fia her own tariff, as Canada uovr does, the Conservative party, of which Weyler has constituted himself the head since his arrival in Spain, will fight that measure tooth aud nail so long as they have breath. So it will go on till tbe day of judgment unless the United States intervenes or at least refuses longer to spend $2,000,000 to $3,000,000 a year in the attempt to keep filibusters at home, A simple announcement that this country will not con tiirue to spend money on this object while Spain is unable to do her part of suppressing the rebellion would be sufficient to land on the island 25,000 troops in a mouth. American merchants would back tbe expeditions, for they want tbe thing ended and their Cuban trade restored to them. Ten years ago Josef Hofman, the pianist, was an infant phenomenon. His natural gift for piano manipulation and for improvisation on that instrument were the marvel of Europe. He came to America on a concert tour. Tbe Society For tbe Prevention of Cruelty to Cbil- dren interfered aud stopped tbe tour. Then little Hofmauu retired from the stage and begau to study and practice like other aspiring pianists. He has LOW reappeared in public and will come to the United States in March greater than ever. He is a strong, muscular young man 20 years-old. Perhaps his enforced retirement was the best thing that could have happened. His genius might have been as brilliant if he had remained in public life, but his health would certainly not have been so good. Eight Hon. Charles T. Kitchie, president of the London board of trade, calls the attention of his fellow countrymen to the heavy decline in British exports during the past ten mouths. He issues 9 solemn warning to Britons that this decline is due to American competition. Well, what do Right fioii. Mr. Ritchie and his fellow Britons propose to do about it? We arc only getting back our just dues. If we now begin to "oust British trade," as Mr. Kitchie declares, it is only our tnru. The British have been ousting us ever since our country began its existence. The Currency Reformers. The Republicans in congress seem to be wholly at sea on the currency question. Chairman Walker, of the house banking and currency committee, vigorously combats the recommendations submitted by President McKinley. In referring io the MoKlnley plan of locking up the greenbacks, he says: "The recommendation that green backs redeemed in gold be not paid out except for gold, if enacted Into law. would enable one man with ll,- 000,000 of greenbacks, demanding gold ol the trea»ury and then depositing gold in the bank for greenbacks and repeating the process 346 times, to retire the whole 1346,000,000 in the time it would take him to oscillate between the sub-treasury in New York and his confederate foreign broker." "The recommendation that banks be reaulred to redeem their notes in gold, with no other provision of law, would cause every bank In the country to surrender Its circulation, and then what agency would keep tbe country on t gold basis?" Secretary Gage's plan of Issuing gold bonds to get money to redeem the greenbacks is bitterly opposed and there seems to be no possibility of loduolng congress to accept hts flan. In the meantime the gold con Grieving Mother Follows Tier Y>anjfh*er. Indianapolis, nee. 14.—Mrs. Huffman. \vife of a Big Four railroad employe at Brighuvuod. attempted to commit sui- ride by swallowing carbolic acid. Yesterday her condition was such as to give hopes for her recovery. A few iveeks ago her daughter Etta Huffma- killed heself by the use of the same acid. The daughter's lover, a young man named Phillips, had shot himself to death, and this was assigned as the reason for the girl's act. It is supposed that grief over the tragic death of her daughter caused Mrs. Huffman to take »r own life. His Pet Dog Burled with Him. Muncie Ind.. Dec. 14.—A strange bequest, made by John P. Smith, a meat dealer, seven years ago on his death bed. was fulfilled last week. It was to bury his pet dog- at the foot of his grave vhen it died. The animal expired several days ago and Mrs. Smith, fearing that Sexton Jewett would object should he know that a dog was to be interred, secured a burial permit for a child and the will was carried out. Sexton Jewett. it is said, talks of digging up. the dog and cremating it in the garbage furnace. Mrs. Smith insists that the grave shall not be disturbed and says she will institute injunction proceedings should such a step be taken. Keceivership To Be Dissolved. Fort TVayne, Ind., Dec. 14.—It is rumored that the Fort Wayne Consolidated railway receivership will be dissolved in a few days and that J.H. Bass and M. Stanley Robinson, joint receivers, will both retire from the company. The road is a most perfect system, controlling all lines in the city. President Shipperd's alleged hypothecation of ?!.000,000 of bonds precipitated the receivership. The matter is still pending in the Cleveland courts. It is also rumored that the Brass Fonudry and Machine works will pass out of the hands of receivers this week. Glass Troubles To Be Arbitrated. Anderson, Ind., Dec. 14.—Secretary J. D. Van Deventer. of the window glass manufacturers' national wage committee, has returned from Pittsburg. A conference was held after the workers had signed the wage scale, and another agreement was entered into, whereby all parties agree to leave to boards oil arbitration any and all questions arising during this season. It will be necessary to get in every working hour when the plants are started, and this agreement will insure that no plant will te closed down until July 1. Case of Total Depravity. Martinsville, Ind., Dec. 14.—A prosecution in the local courts came to an unexpected and sudden end last Saturday evening. Schuyler liay, 40 years old, a man of family, of Hendricks county, was indicted by the last grand jury for alleged criminal assault on Betsy O'Neil, 13 years old, of this county. The girl was the prosecuting witness in the trial of Saturday, and she surprised every one by denying everything, save that she had testified falsely before the granAJury.
