Millions of money and thousands of lives have been sacrificed and the war IB no nearer an end than at the beginning. ___ HANNA'S hopes are somewhat re- ftved bp the arrival of Oalvin 3. Brice at Columbus. It is believed that Brlce would rather see Hanna •ent back to the senate than some other Kepubllcan of less monopolistic tendencies. IT seems fit and proper that the great "sound money" party which won a victory in 1896 with boodle and by fraud, coercion and intimidation •hould avoid the question on which, it waged the campaign devote its time and attention to an effort to overthrow the civil service law. Congress seems wholly Indifferent to the currency question. It was quick to pass a law designed to fatten the trusts and the protected corporations. It Is now attempting to make places 'or tbe spoilsmen. Carl Schuiz, whose ipeecbes did more to advance tr>e cause of the gold conspirators than MjthiDg that was done in the line of speech making, Is denounced as e corrupt man who espouses a cause for a price. The conflicting elements that joined together under the ban- of Washington since McKlnley's nanguration waiting for something to "turn np." These expectants [eve not "sound money" the less but office holding more>. The gold Conspirators, the real head of the sound money movement, eaire nothing for the offices. They seek to control legislation and to secure the enactment of such laws as will bind this country irrevocably to the single gold standard. They imagine chat the army of office seekers now clamoring for recognition made great sacrifices from pure devotion to the cause of "sound money." They are mistaken. Even the corporations that exerted such a powerful Influence through the Ignoble methods of coercion and intimidation In behalf of the cause of "sound money," were promised official positions during the campaign, and McKinley has already made good Mark Banna's promises. They .have secured their reward. But the great army of office seekers find that there are no rewards for them unless the civil service law is overthrown. When, therefore, Charley Landis makes a demand for the wholesale discharge of such Democrats as have obtained positions in the public service under the civil service law, he strikes a responsive chord In those whose hearts have been made sick by hope long deterred. Armenian Propagandists. A flood of light is thrown on the real cause of the Armenian massacres in one of Dr. Hepworth's Herald letters. The cause of this horrible theological killing is not religious at all., but political, as has been the case iii every instance of a so called religions -war in either Europe or Asia from the time of the crusades to the present day. Here is the bare truth: For many years England has been ostentatiously pitying the persecuted Armenian Christians in the Turk's dominions. Armenians are scattered all over Asia Minor. But they are in the minority everywhere. In Kurdistan, for instance, there are 50,000 Armenians, civilians all. In Kurdistan there are, on the other hand, 3,000,000 Kurds, many of them drilled soldiers, thoroughly armed,* desperate fighters and the best cavalrymen in the Turkish army. This is about the proportion of Turk and Armenian generally. Nevertheless Buj 'land continues to Longest Street Car What vrill be for a time at least the longest street car ronte in the United States is tinder process of construction, in. Ohio. It is an electric irpad which will unlize the ordinary public highways from Cleveland 'to Cincinnati, thus bisecting the state. The line be 262 miles long. Its object is td gei; the way passenger and freight traffic between villages through wbloh it paiises. Many of these, have not at present railroad facilities of any kind. It will also pass by farms, enabling the agriculturist to stop the airs at his own door and load upon them his grain and live stock, conveying it thcs to market. Thei line will pass through 14 counties on the route from Cleveland to Cincinnati. The projectors expect to do a great business in conveying excursion parties, and in this they will not be disappointed. Special excursion cars of she double deck or two story pattern are provided, fitted with, smoking rooms amd accommodations similar to a parlor car on long distance trains. There will be special freight cars and trains. The motor attached to each car will be small, of merely 25 horsepower, but it will be sufficient, and the cars will run at very short intervals. They will be operated on the trolley plan and will make an average speed of 35 miles an hour. The possibilities open to a road like this are hardly to be estimated. It will connect directly with large business centers sparsely settled districts that will wake as from a Eip Van Winkle sleep. It will scatter population from the largest cities and populate suburban country districts. The small expense at which such a line can be operated will enable it to charge low rates. That of itself will be a boon. For summer tourists there could not be invented a pleasanter mode of travel than this, doing away as it does with, steam, smoke .and cinders and much dust. The only wonder is that nobody thought of such a long distance street car line before. Overcoat $1.60 ~ re propose 'to usethe papers to Announce SPECIAL OFFERINGS.

It is satisfactory to know that our trado relations with Canada are on the whole satisfactory, in spite of the attempt of editors on both sides of the lino to stir up hard feeling, heaven knov?s why. Canada bad last year a much heavier trade with us than with Great Britain. It is well to . bear in n connection with this that Can- George W.

Every merican heart is grateful to Senator Hawley for the significant and patrione ds with which he squelched die malley snobbery: "I regret; that my riend Mr. Suialley misunderstands the ouutry in which he was bom. His ouie is no longer iu New England, but n old England. He belongs over therp nd ought to stay there." neror Mark Banna can again. never unite THE board of ajjriculture, at its •ession at Indianapolis this week, discussed the question of why country boys are leaving the farms to engage in other pursuits. It is a well known fact that for past years farming has not paid. The farmer who employs help cannot afford to pay more than 50 cents per day and beard for . a good — m "" band. That has been the ruling price for the past five years. As i&be seiison of employment does not last over six months In the year, the s.mbiWous farmer boys look about for something better. Manual labor in the open air mates tihsm strong and healthy and flts ttaem for most any kind ot manual labor. They seek employment on railways and In Other pursuits that require steadiness »od hardihood. It Is likelythat half the men employed cm our railways came from the farm. They likewise drift to the shops and factories where employment Is found the year round. In the end, however, the young man whti sticks to the tarm, becomes a renter, and, finally an owner of a 40 or SO acre farm, will perhaps find himself best situated as the shadows of life lengthen. express in words anil wind her sympathy for the oppressed Armenians. No dotibt tbo.y are oppressed. "In London, in Puris and in Berlin," says Dr. Hepworth, "there are certain Armenian hotbeds." At this safe distance Armenian propagandists stir tip their countrymen at home to revolt. The propagandists get their livins and a good one by it. They lead the revolting people to believe that England will lay hold if they "begin the rebellion and help them get free of the Turk. That England never does, never will do, bin still the safe Armenians in Europe stir up the Armenians in Asia Minor to shoot and knife Turkish officials. The result is that Turkish soldiers fall upon the rebels and put them and their families to death without mercy. Here is an interview with a captive Armenian: "It was not possiWe for you," said my 'riend, ''even in your blindest moments to suppose vou conld be succnssful." We nevur dreamed of success," was the reply. "But by your folly you have caused hundreds of innocent people to bo murdered in cold blood.'' We could do the same thing over again, was tho response. And whyV" Because though we are not strong in ourselves we are strous in the sympathy of Europe. Whnt we cannot do Europe can do and we believe will do if her sympathy is sufficiently enlisted. In a way the sacrifice of the Armenian populace to the snvago lury of the Turks is the shortest roud we cim take. If we can make Europe fight our battles for n=, we shall achieve suowss." ada ha'sfgiven to the United States better reciprocal trade arrangements 1;han sbe has to Great Britain itself. Duties on British goods imported into Canada are 4 per cent higher than 'on American goods entering the Dominion. Spain still whines that filibustering expeditions continue to leave United States ports for Cuba. Well, why do not Spanish cruisers stop them from landing in Cuba then? With a half de- ient navy and half decent vigilance Spain would keep the Cuban coast so uarded that no little schooner could run in and unload. The United States has the whole coast from the bay of Fundy down to the Mexican border to guard. Spain has only the line drawn, around" the shores of an island not a;i large as an average state of the Union. What is Spain herself abort? Indiana, that seat of enlightenment nd civilization, is glorying in the fact hat "Kid" McCoy, the man who whipped in the last prizefight, was born In fact, jusc at this moment she eenas prouder of being the mother state Kid" McCoy than of James Whit- Riley. __ Keep This in Mind. "Let all Republicans fight to keep greenbacks In circulation, aad to get rid of slavery to gold men, who are trying to drive out of use the sliver money of the wage-earners of the world."—Senator Chandler of New Hampshire. We observe that another minister has been preaching concerning the growing wickedness of the times. When a person begins to conclude the world is not so good as ic used to be, it is a sign of one thing only—that he is growing old. It is a sign that the preacher has no faith at all iu his own religion. What such a man wants is to shake himself np, go out and work by the day awhile at choppine wood or some other active physical labor, or take a course iu dieting, athletics and bicycling—anything to get out of his old ruts of thought. A hustling, lively journey would be good for him, one that shook him up and let the voice of tie world into his ears. Then he would find there are as much generosity and gentleness, as much purity, heroism and high endeavor as there ever vrera It may be that certain conventional views of conduct and propriety are not the game as they were \rhen he was young, but whut of that? Fashions of dress are not the same as they were. Oh, no! Let him shake himself up and look about him, and he will find that he it is who is deteriorating, not the •world. It is of first importance that the Alaskan Indians should in all ways bo conciliated and treated fairly by miner:; and others in their country. If their good will is gained, they will be of great help to white people developing the country. The Indians themselves do not care for the gold, or they \ronlc have had much of it long ago, but if they should become irritated against us by being cheated or ill treated by those who do want the gold it is in their power to make things extremely unpleasant for us. Booker T. Washington, principal of the Normal and Industrial institute for the education of colored studersts a. Tuskegee, Ala., announces that $50 sent to him will pay for the schooling of a young man or woman for one year. When the student receives sufficient ed ucation, he or she will be sent to tin counties in Alabama in which the great; est number of illiterate colored children are and will establish schools amon them. Here is opportunity to do mnch good for the comparatively small snm of $50. The recent opening of valuable mine in the west and northwest will give a stimulus to industrial enterprises geueir allv in the country and relieve the gorgi cf money in the older cities.

Mr. A. W. Sharper, of No. 61 Prospect street, Indianapolis, writes as follows: "A« motive of pure gratitude prompts me to write these few lines regarding the new and valuable medicine, Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets. I have been a sufferer from nervous dyspepsia for the last four years; have used various patent medicines and other remedies without any favorable result. They sometimes gave temporary relief until the effects of the medicine wore oft.
