This will lead to an exciting debate in which the friends of will take the aggressive. HON. DAVID B. HILL has at at last broken the aeal that closed his lips and Imparts to the listening world the fact the faot that he voted lor William Jennings Bryan and the Straight Democratic ticket In 1J96. He no doubt feels better than those Democrats of the east who turned belr backs upon the loyal Democracy •f the west and south to vote for McKinley, a high tarifl and gold Monometallism. BON.' PARKS MARTIN was re-elected chairman of the Democratic state central committee yesterday by a unanimous vote. The new committee is a strong one and the reports »he members bring from their respective districts are altogether encouraging. The Democratic state •onvention will probably be held in May. It was decided at yesterday's meeting that no effort would be made to overthrow the Republican gerrymander, although there is little doubt of Its unconstitutionally and no doubt of its unfairness. It 19 the general belief that the Democrats can carry the legislature, notwithstanding the gerrymander. GOVERNOR PINGREE said this in his speech delivered last night at Buffalo: Today all the trusts, all ' the Monopolies, every agency which is Weeding the country, has taken refuge under the wing of the Republican party because they ftar the Democratic party, which has kicked them out. To them party is a means to an end and that end is t« get rlsh at everybody's expense, right or wrong. Governor Pingree spoke the truth. The Democratic party is purer and oetter since it defied and cast out the corrupt agencies that sought to control it. There is not a trust promoter, • monopolist or a gold conspirator but who knows that the election of Bryan means an end to their nefarious •chemes of plunder. ENGLAND proposes to prevent the dismemberment of China, even though it may require bloodshed to avoid it. Sir Michael Hicks-Bench, in a speech delivered at Swansea yesterday, declared that the government did not regard China as the place for conquest or colonization by aay European or other power, but as one of the most hopeful centers of the future for the commerce of Great Britain and of all the world. He said the government was absolutely determined, at whatever cost, even tf necessary—for he wished to speak plainly—at the cost of war, that that door should not be shut to Great Britain. England will perhaps have to make her words good, as Russia Is determined to acquire Chinese territory. American senate declare that loth gold and silver 19 "sound money" and that every government obligation is payable in either gold or silver. GOVERNOR PINGREE, in his speech before a Republican club at Brooklyn N. Y., last night, said: "Government for bondholders is becoming quite common in the woirld —nations gone into the hands of a receiver. "All that the poor miserable laborers In the Nile valley and their children for three generations can earn is to be paid over to British bondholders and the government of Egypt gets Its ordera fi'om Lombard street,. "Greece is mortgaged and was not permitted to fight for its interests by those who held Grecian bonds. "In India, In Turkey, in Spain, the influence of 'the coupon Is paramount, the welfare of the people a cecmdary consideration. "In late years in our own country the influence of wealth in dictating legislative measures and government policies Is becoming more and more apparent." Is McKiNLET a bimetallist? Senator Wolcott says that he has had many conversations with the president recently and that Mclinley is a ilncere bimetallist. Secretary Gage talks frequently with the president, and the secretary Insists that McKinley Is a sincere advocate of the gold standard. But the gold conspirators bfgin to doubt McKinley. They are not certain that they can control him with inch men as Senators Wolcott, Chandler and Carter polling him the other way. The time has come for Interpreting "sound money." The fold conspirators insist that there Is no "sound money" other than that joada of gold. More than half the In Havana. It is Weyler, still and always Weyler, who in responsible for the rioting at Havana. The most significant faot connected with if iit that the mobs wore actually headed by regular officers of the Spanish army. Among tories and old fogies in every place are to be found the men -who hare amassed wealth. Their possessions have made them timid, reactionary. Accordingly it is not strange that the inhabitants of Havana who adhered most firmly to the loyalist cause have been the wealthy merchants. These have crattoried even the Conservative party in Spain. They were the most determined upholders of Weyler's tyrannical and cruel course. When, therefore, autonomy was proposed by the liberal cabinet of Spain, the adherents of Weyler in Havana opposed it bitterly. Weyler, though in Spain, prompted iiheir actions still. The wealthy tories of Havana would see their island sank into the sea before they wonld accept: even such autonomy as the Spanish government offered. The next step was to resist autonomy by force. Most prominent among the rioters next to officers and soldiers of the Spanish army were rick merchants. These, Spanish officers and soldiers and rich Havana tories, were the ones who turned against their own queen and government and mobbed their fellow townsmen who favored General Blanco's course. It is the sure beginning of the end of the war of Cuban independence. Meantime the United States Atlantic squadron happens just now conveniently to be at and around and on.its way to Key West "for its usual winter evolutions in the gulf waters." Just so. Curfew Ordinance. The Boys and Girls' National Home and Employment association was organized in 1890. Its chief object was to find ways to stop the alarming increase of crime among children and youths. In 1894 the organization recommended as on experiment the passing in cities of the so called curfew ordinance. It required that children nnder 15, unless they had a permit or were accompanied by their parents or guardians, should not be out upon the street after 9 o'clock in summer or 8 o'clock in winter. Western cities took up the matter and began enacting the ordinance one after another, until in the three years elapsing since the movement commenced 300 have it on their municipal statute books. Among them are snch large places as Omaha, Denver, Topeka, Kansas City and St. Joseph, Me. It is to bo noted that the results of the enactment, so :far as reported, aro invariably good. There has been no trouble enforcing the law. Children quietly go to their homes at the required hour without any admonishment. Mayor Graham of Lincoln, Neb., says that in the first month after the passage of the ordinance arrests of yontbs decreased 75 per cent. In St. Joseph commitments to the reform school have diminished one-half. Since the ordinanre was passed in North Platte, Neb., there has been not one commitment to the reform school. In Lincoln teachers report that their bad boys have become much more quiet arid orderly in school since thev have been taken out of that school of crime, the city street at night. Justly or -unjustly there is a belief that too much sugar has been the trouble with the United States senate. The belief takes the form of strong suspicion in connection with the opposition in that venerable body to the annexation of Hawaii. It is probably not the presence of ex-Qneen Lil's emissaries in Washington at this time which is bringing President Dole of Hawaii on a hurried trip to Washington so much as the suspicion of sugar in and about the United States senate. Senators who oppose the treaty need to take very particular pains to prove to the country that there is no refined sugar sticking to their fingers. This is for the sake of their own reputation. The country expects it of them. It is only right. The tittle Affair With Slam. : Mr. E. V. Kellett is American vice consul to the kingdom of Siam. Last November Mr. Barrett, our minister to Siam, semt Mr. Kellett to the town of Chiengmai on business. Mr. Kellett sent his clerk to the postoffice at 8 o'clock in the evening. The clerk was a native Siiimese, and he carried a slim little silver headed cane. The police arrested him on the charge of violating a town ordinance forbidding the carrying of "dangerous sticks" at night. It appears that the Siamese police were very glad of an excuse to molest an employee of a foreigner. Word was sent to Mr. Kellett, who was indignant. He proceeded at once to the police station, demanded and got his clerk and started home with him. On the way he was suddenly surrounded by & body of Siamese soldiers, who began to beat and batter him with their muskets. He resisted and backed up against a wall and laid about him with his cane lively. Same missionaries who came by persuaded the vice consul to let the soldiers take his clerk back to the police station, which he did. The soldiers had stopped him and beaten him for taking the clerk away before the police court had released him. Mr. Kellett acquainted Minister Barrett with the outrage. At first the Siamese government was very lofty and independent. It refused to let anybody but one of its own heathen Siamese courts sit on Mr. Kellett's case. But the United States has a treaty with Siam, as with other Aisiatic nations, specifying that our citizens shall be tried by American consular courts or by mixed courts of Siamese and Americans. Siam refused to permit the mixed commission to try the case. Now comes in the moral, and let Americans heed it well. About seven years ago there was built at Bath, Me.,, an unpretentious little gunboat, which was named for that other Maine town, Machias. Five years ago the Machias was ordered to Asiatic: waters. She was not very large, but she was perfectly provided with modern gens which will shoot true. By a coincidence almost immediately after the Siamese government refused to let Mr. Kellett's case be investigated by a mixed commission the Machias appeared one fine' day in the harbor of Bangkok and anchored there. The effect was magical.' In less than no time the Siamese acceded to Minister Barrett's demand for a mixed commission. They likewise humbly and publicly apologized for the assault on a representative of the United States government, and the soldiers who committed the assault were, severely punished. All's well that ends well. •The admirable monthly consular reports issued by the United States government have been of great advantage to American merchants and manufacturers. They have also added much to tne stock of information of the people in general. To a right minded person these reports are most interesting as well as valuable 'reading. The system has now been enlarged to include *a daily publication of consular reports. Every day the bureau of foreign commerce at Washington issues bulletins containing advance sheets of the reports. These will be sens on application to newspapers, boards of trade, merchants and manufacturers and others who want them. It is to the interest of everybody to increase our foreign trade, and nothing shows how to do this better than the consular reports which have hecomo a feature of the govern- ntpublications. Cpnsnlsareinstruct- ed to look after trade possibilities especially. _ American merchants who sell sealskin garments will be able to aid their customers greatly by having all tae regulations of the new law complied with before the garments leave their hands. There will not be so many new sealskin garments bought in the next few years, as it will be unlawful even to buy a Loadon dyed coat abroad and bring it into America except under very fussy and troublesome conditions. Sealskins may still be imported from the other pole of the earth, however, and :rom countries other than Great Britain. It is all very well for the president and Secretary Sherman to appeal to the people of the United States to contribute aid to the starving Cubans. The people of the Qnited States are generous and are glad to relieve suffering anywhere, but they would like, to know before they pour out money and supplies whether it will go only to aid the cruel Spaniard that much longer to keep his foot on the neck of Cuba. If any aid at all is sent, it should go in at least equal proportions to the patriots and loyalists. There is no indication that any ot it will go to the patriots and their friends and families. The proclamation of Secretary Sherman was absolutely silent-on that point. He merely specified that the supplies should be sent to the United States consel general at Havana. Ho mentioned likewis* 1 that Spain would admit charitable supplies to the island free of duty. Pouring money, food and clothing into Havana will only help Spain against Cuba apparently. From the American point of view such char ity is a profound mistake unless Spain will let the insurgents have their share of the relief. George J. Smith, who discovered the fabulously rich Tread-well mine in Alaska, has committed suicide. Returns nr' taming in early. To avoid "II trouble men and women rich enough to o\vu sealskin garments and travel abroad with them either oc their persons or otherwise will save themselves much trouble and perhaps the confiscation of the furs by complying at once with the new regulatjpn of the United States treasury. Briefly it is this: Get a tag from the maker or merchant of whom you bought it put upon the seal garment, whether cloak, coat, gloves, jacket or anything else made of seal Then take it to the inspector, of customs before you leave the country and get his tag put upon it also, specify ing that the sealskin law has been duly complied with. Then yon may leave the country without fear that when you return your garment will be confiscated. T.he present law is that no sealskins shall be imported into this country from Canada or Great Britain, and it is made to apply to seal garments as well as skinsi. The state department at Washington is said to be in possession of positive in formation that, as everybody but the state department knew Icng ago, the al leged autonomy of Cnba is a gauzy fraud and pretense. The best thing for Spain to do is to sell out to the revolutionists while she can for the best price she can get. The "Domestic" Office. A recent bulletin of Edison's daily discoveries mentions that he has found an alloy which will make cast iron as strong and hard to break as wrought iron. Edison ought now to tnrn his attention to finding something that -will make glass and earthenware tough and durable. The breaking of exquisite glass and chinaware articles is as sorrowful in its way as the breaking of hearts—worse, in fact, for the heart can generally be mended,, the glass and china never. "When peace is declared," saiS General Gomez to a New York Herald correspondent, "we want to reckon Spun among OUT friends, Cnba's laboring classes have been almost destroyed, and. Wi Khali need men to till the soil Th» rank and file of the Spanish army in fill the g»p." : , -;. The return Americans got for sending provisions to the starving reconcentrados in Cuba was that a mob attacked Americans in Havana and attempted to kill them and destroy their property.

A Pleasant Simple, Bat Safe Effectual Care for It. , Caiiarih of the stomach has long been considered the next thing to incurable. The usual symptoms are a full oc bloating sensation after eating, accompanied sometimes with sour or watery risings, a formation of gases, causing pressure on the heart and lungs and difficult breathing; headache, fickle appetite, nervousness and a general played out,languid feeling. There Is often a foul taste la the mouth, coated tongue, and if the interior of the stomach could be seen it would show a slimy, inflamed condition. The cure for this common and obstinate trouble is lound in a treatment which causes the food to be readily, thoroughly digested before it has time to ferment and irritate the delicate mucous surfaces of the stomach. To secure a prompt and healthy digestion is the one necessary thing to do, and when normal digestion Is secured the catarrhai condition will have disappeared. According to Dr. Harlanson the safest and best treatment is to use after each meal a tablet, composed of Diastase, Aseptic Pepsin, a litte Nux, Golden Seal and fruit acida. - Tbese tablets can now be found at all drug stores under the Danii|of Stuart's. Dyspepsia Tablets, and, not being a patent medicine, can be used with perfect safety and assurance that healthy appetite atid thorough digestion will follow their regular use after meals. » Mr. N. J. Booher, of 2710 Dearborn street, Chicago, 111., writes: "Catarrh is a local condition result- Ing from a neglected cold in the head, whereby the lining membrane of the nose becomes inflamed and the poisonous discharge therefrom passing backward into the throat, reaches the stomach, thus producing catarrh or the stomach. Medical authorities prescribed for me for three year* for catarrh'of the stomach without cure, but today I am the happiest of men after using only one box of Stuart's Dyspeosia Tablets. I cannot find appropriate words to express my good feeling. "I have found flesh, appetite and sound rest from their use. Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets is the safest preparation as well as the simplest and most convenient remedy ; for any form of. indigestion, catarrh of stomach, biliousness, sour stomach, heartburn and bloating after meals.

Nothing °f the kind occurred, and the Strikers strengthened their cause by making the question of fines a definite issue with the mill owners. It is just possible that an agreement on thisques- tion may lead to some satisfactory ending- of the whole matter In that city, although at present such an outcome seems distant. The matter of financial support to the strikers.,was generally discussed, not only in Kev,- ijedford, but in Biddeford, Saco and Lewiston, Me., and while the union strikers seem to have no anxiety regarding the next three months the non-union men who are cut fear that they may not receive sufficient support. In Fall Paver the superintendent of the Kins Philip mill, where there is a strike, went so far as agreeing to remedy union grievances, but other than this there appears no breach in the line Of the manufacturers during the day. The hundred thousand operatives in all six of 'the Ne.w England states are watching the contest in New Bedford, Saco and Biddeford very closely. At New Bedford the weavers' union yesterday voted to indorse the action of the mass-meeting of Friday night and make the removal\of the fines system an issue of the strike. The Spinners' union at New Bedford last night voted to pay the members of the union strike- pay of $4 per week; per member, each member to be allowed 25 cents extra for every child in his family under 13 years of age. It was also voted to pay doffers $2.50 per week and' joiners- $3. Strike pay will commence Saturday, Jan. 29. wfll ne soltf rormucTUese "than toe- price of. the machines now in use.
