UAILYPHABOS TUESDAY. MKJ. T. LOtTTHAIS- JOHS W. LonthAtxi * Barnes. TOIIOKS AND PROPETEIOHB. THE Lodge immigration bill passed tbe senate. ID provides for an educational test. It) excludes all immi- rmits who can neither read nor write the English or some other language. _ THE gold trust is an international trust. It is the most powerful trust in existence, threatening as it does the returns of every man who earns a living by dally toil. The men who iccure control of tlae money supply of the world can bring ruin to the producing classes. WHAT would tauve been the condition of this country today, had there been no foreign demand for oar products? The :reply of the protectionist is that the Dlngley tariff in. •teased the price of wheat. But the price of wheat went up before the passage of that law. IN- his farewell address Andrew Jackson said: "The corporations which create th<( paper money can- mot be relied upon to keep the clrcu- liting medium uniform in amount. "In times of prosperity, when con- Idecce Is high, th-ey are tempted by the prospects of gain or by the in- luence of those who hope to profit by It to extend their issues of paper fceyona the bounds of discretion ant* the reasonable demands of busi- •ess, and when these issues have fceen pushed oti from day to day, until public confidence is at length shaken, then a reaction takes place, and they Immediately withdraw the credits; they ha,ve give n suddenly curtail their tesues and produce an unexpected and ruinous contraction oil the circulating Medium, which is felt by the whole community. "The banks by this means save themselves, and the mischievous con- aequencea of thoir imprudence or tupldity are visited upon the public, * * * It is uvident that the public interests cannot be eflectually protected unless (illver and gold are restored to circulation." The Jewels of Poverty. The story of the turning of the tide of Ex-Senator Tabor's fortunes •was full of incidents illustrating the aoble and generous .phases of human mature. One paragraph was particularly striking: Hie wife, who was charged with Marrying him for his millions, has remained hl« filthful companion. She and her two children occupy the little cabin, tbe furniture of which would not cost more than 150, and the has proved hsrself a perfect help Mate, cheering her husband at his dally labors and frequently aiding kirn to haul rock from the shaft when they were unable to employ any help. This recalls Henry Irving's conundrum and its; answer, so beautiful because It is so true: Why is woman like Ivy? Because the greater the ruin the closer »he clings. Senator Wulcott's Hpeecb. Senator Wolccitt spoke to the senate yesterday of the obstacles encountered in the effort to reach an agreement with foreign nations In tbe matter of the restoration of silver coinage. His •peech will commacd universal attention. He speaks for thai wing of the Republican party which advocates bimetallism and which supported MeK!nifty with the expectation that he would help In the effort to get rid of the single gold standard. He stated what the country now knows, that France actively desires to see silver restored to its old position as the standard of value equally with gold, and 'that it Is useless for the time being to count on any cooperation from Great Britain toward «bimetallic agreement. He maintains, however, that the cause of bimetallism is not dead in Europe, but that it is a llvieg, vital and growing force. He states that the monetary commission was embarassed in its work by American bankers who assured English officials that the sentiment which formerly existed tn the United States favorable to bimetallism was dead; that the gold standard was generally favored and that President McKlnley shared the views of the advocawia «f the gold standard. He (Isolated that President McKinley had given earnest support to tne commission and that h.e earnestly desired toe restoration of silver •oinage. He says that McKinley'8 reference to bimetallism in his recent message gave renewed hope to bl- m»etalllst» all over the country, but that Secretary Gage's wtoommend- ations to congress are ati variance •with Republican pledges, irad he pre- VICTOR HUGO WAS RIGHT. Plain Fact But a Torment- Truth. ing <He Is Sick Alone, Is Serer •"or He Has Hifi Sickness Constantly With Him. Victor Hugo oncesald: "He who is hungry is not alone, for he has his :unger always with him." The modern version of this might be: "He who is sicfc is never alone, for he has his sickness constantly with him." But what a companion! He is like the criminal who fonnd himself shackled to a corpse, his days are miserable and his nights a nightmare. You can shake off the dread companionship of disease and weakness If you will. You can oe made again strong, vigorous and well If you will use that greatest cure of modern tjmes, Dr. Greene's Nervura blood and nerve remedy, Mr. I. E. Marble, 1616 6th Ave., Troy, N. Y., says: "I was troubled about three years or more with that terrible disease, dyspepsia. I had been living so lonp in this state, that I became so weak I could scarcely get up and down stairs.* I could not eat substantial food enough to give me the proper strength to work on. "I got a bottle of Dr. Greene's Nervura and took about half of it when I began tu see a change in my couditlon, and so I kept on until I waa perfectly cured, I don't think I took over five bottles. Before I began to take the remedy I could eat nothing but rye bread, this was all I could keep on my stomach. Now I can eat anything, vegetables of all kinds, and we keep Dr. Greene's Ner vura blood and nerve remedy in the house all the time. 1 recommend it to everybody." Take Dr. Greene's Nervnra blood and nerve remedy at once, for yon can, if you desire, consult Dr.Greene 148 State St., Chicago, 111., the most successful physician in curing diseases, absolutely tree of charge whether you call or write about youi case. diets that Gage's bill will reach limbo long befor it reaches the sen ate. In referring to the gold standard he said that its continued main tenance meant misery and oppression for the laboring and agricultura classes. The people*of Europe, he says, are struggling as we are to keep their beads above water and seeking blindly for that which make for pros parity and for progress. Hebellevei that the restoration of silver coinage would be the greatest blessing tha could befall our people, and that to achieve it we might well afford to sink for the time the hostilities of party and the bickerings of factions. "Trade Follows the Flag." Hawaiian Annexation. One of tbe most important and timely The editor of The Review of Reviews contributions to current literature is presents several strong reasons why he paper in The North Ameriawi Be-; Hawaii should be annexed to the Unic• • ~ .--•—'-' d States W i t houc delay. The people of he islands themselves want very much o come to us for one thing. For another ought to have a naval and coaling station iu the Pacific. Perhaps the trousest reason of all is, however, that nless we annex Hawaii the newrepub- ic of the Pacific may be offered bodily o England. England would not leave t to go begging while carping, fussy Miss Nancy critics split hairs over the uestion whether she had any right un- er the constitution to accept Hawaii ud what she would do with it if she oc ic. Hawaii comes to us exactly as 'exas did, and we did not hesitate bout receiving Texas. European na- ions weald not object to our annexing Hawaii because we are so peaceably in- lined that they are all well disposed us, says Dr. Shaw. Another point, extremely important, o be considered is summed by The Re- lew as follows: American control of Hawaii is in some sense dnty that this country owes to Japan and China Those ancient oriental states are sen- osly menaced by the aggressive attitude of he land grabbing European powers, and it England or Germany should obtain Hawaii he *ort ot peaceful development of tha oriental mtions which is most to be desired by ua would 1)9 further endangered. Again, from the political and strategic point of view, the position of Hawaii ought to be regarded by us s closely related to other policies overwhelmingly favored by the people of toe United states We refm to the American control ot he Nicaragua canal and to the acquisition of ne or more satisfactory naval stations in the test Indies. •iew on "America's Opportunity In China," hy Charles JDenby, Jr., secre- j tary to the American legation in China. Ho calls attention to the strange aja- ;hy with which America looks on whi.le ;he nations of Europe are fillicg the waters of the Pacific with their -war vessels and moving heaven and earth to monopolize commerce with Japan and especially with China. The industrial and commercial spirit of China is w£ik- ng from a Rip Van "Winkle sleep. Mr. Denby believes that China must emerge rom her position of subjection and inferiority and become one of the gnat nations of the earth, and that Japan will in the loz?g run be only a secondary power compared to her. Perhaps J\Ir. Denby is right, but it certainly does not look that -way to the western world just at present. Whatever the future may brinjg, however, he is right in urging the American people, headed by their government, ;o rouse themselves" and gain their proper share of the rich trade of tbe fu- :nre with the orient. Inevitably greatly enlarged trade facilities will follow the gathering of the fleets of Europe in Asiatic waters. "Trade follows the flag." Mr. JDenby therefore earnestly urges the United States government to look after our trade interests in China and Japan. European merchants receive determined backing from their respective governments, wherever they may be, and such support should not be lacking to our traders abroad. Cheap American freight steamers should span the waters hoth from New York and Philadelphia and from Portland and San Francisco, carrying our wares outward, bringing back those of Asia. American manufacturers should send their ablest agents to Asia, while our government watches with jealous eye lest any infringement of most favored nation rights be suffered by us when European powers make treaties with the Asiatic countries. Even some American newspapers iaave been expressing sympathy foi 1 poor old England, browbeaten, insulted and ignored in European affairs, according to their belief. Meantime Mr. McLeavy Brown, the Englishman who had been dismissed as superintendent of the Korean finances and a Russian agent;, M. Alexioff, appointed in his place, has been reinstated. China is earnestly seeking to enter into closer relations with British capitalists in order 1:c get a loan from them. Great Britain is also prepared to enforce her right to winter ships at Port Arthur it Russia does. This does not look as though "poor old England'.' was quite a back' number. When tbe scoffs of Germans and French and Irish and also of some American newspaper writers rain upon her back, she does not say much, always excepting some of her jingo edi tors. In the words of a famous poem written lasc year by an Englishman, "she turns her eyes toward the sea.:" That is all, but it is enough. Most grabbing nations send their mis sionaries first, then their soldiers, to a region of which they propose taking possession. They say the soldiers axe necessary in order to protect those engaged in preaching the gospel of peace. But Russia's way is different and out and out honest. She sends tbe soldiers first to possess the land, the missionaries afterward, as in case of Korea. Now that she feels secure in possession there she will immediately erect an Orthodox Greek church at Seoul, the capital of Korea. Russia is uotbing if not reli gious, especially when she is engaged in adding a new country to tbe realm of the Romauofl's. The friends of the disgraced Captain Dreyfus of the French army were bent on a desperate game indeed when they sought to clear him of the charge of treason by falsely accusing Major Esterhazy. The failure of their scheme leaves still the noble historic Hungarian name of Esterhazy untarnished, so far as this particular cawe is concerned at least. On tbe heels of the burning at tbe stake near Fort Smith, Ark., of two Seminole Indians, one of them undoubtedly an innocent man, came the most terrific and life destroying tornado that ever devastated the region where the awfal crima was committed. The mob of white men* bnrned two Indians. The tornado killed 50 white people. Immediately on the announcement of the introduction into congress of a currency bill containing the provisions recommended by the monetary commission national bank stocks the country over rose ia Yaltie. The bill gives greatly increased power to the national banks in the matte: of enlarging their circulation and in cither ways. Weyler was a tyrant and a bully in Cuba. • He v,-;-s also a bully to the exten of using insulting language to a worn an, and that woman bis queen, after he went home. On being brought to book for his insulting protest to Queen Chris tina, however, be shows himself a cow ard by taking refuge behind his polit ical privileges and claiming that i;hi government cannot punish him for hi: misdemeanor because Jie is a senator o Spain. Scratch the skin of a bully and you will always find the coward under neath. That man who recently tried Co com tnit suicide by drowning repented tb' moment he touched the icy water off a ferryboat. All desire to kill himsel was instantly taken out of him by tba touch, and when he was able to grasi a rope which had been thrown overboar to him so that he could be drawn out o tha water he was the gladdest man o this footstool. He did not know how much nerve ic takes for a man to drawn himself when the thermometer is a zero. The only entirely happy monarchic* country in Europe is Portugal. She ha neither great navy nor prestige to main tain. She is not grabbing ont for addi tional territory, and her govenraien financiers promise a treasury surpln for nest year. One engagement at least women nearly always keep; that is an engagement to bo married. They are mostly on time too. TJj« trouble-with Ohio U «till the old on*—too many greet men. The "Domestic" Office. Great Britain refused to agree to onr proposed international treaty prohibit- ng either American or British subjects rom hunting seals in the open sea at aresent. In return for this the sealing )ill passed by our congress, signed by President McKinley and now a law will exactly bit Great Britain, for her cherish refusal to help us protect tbe seals. it prohibits tbe importation into this country of Bering sea sealskins. The greatest market for these skins is the Jnited States, where people have more money than in most countries. Canadians were in tbe babit of slaughtering •wholesale our seals, sending the skins to London and having them dressed and dyed and then selling them to us for tbe cloaks of American ladies. Now, no matter bow many seals they catch, !anadians cannot sell the skins to us. Their best market is cut off, and it serves them right. Anthony Comstock, tbe boss of the moral character of the universe, has received 6 cents damages in a suit he brought against a man toy defamation of character. This verdict, while showing in a way what Comstock's fellow citizens think of him in his own town of New York, is rather ambiguous: It may mean either that Comstock's moral character is so high and immaculate that it cannot be damaged more than 6 cents' worth, or it may' mean exactly the opposite—that it is so bad already it. is only worth 6 cents. If Governor Bushnell's mustacbe is as remarkable as appears from his pictures, the seething, foaming political pot in Ohio can be accounted for. It is the mustache thai does it. If any $100 bills are offered to you when you are making small change, do not take theirn when they are silver certificates, for the chances are they are counterfeits. COMMON SJffiNSE CURE.

Lojranpt and o i Concluded from 1st P&pe We would' be glad to see a few a those miraculous applications of elec tricity to the uses and conveniences o common life -which have been promised us so long materialize in actual shape, and we do not think we an unreasonable oither.
