M E L V I N , STEELE . JOHNSON, EDITORS A N D P R O P R I E T O R S . SATURDAY MORNING, MAY 21, 1898. AMERICA'S POWERFUL FRIEND. The ominous mutterings of: the Eiu-opcau papers, especially in Fi-anee, indicate that there is m u c h fooling among Spam's credilois against the Unired States. This feeling lias, of course, been worked up by those who fear they are goins* to lose the bud bills w h i c h Spain owes them. But. there is little danger that France, or any oE the others referred to, will liave the timerity to openly enter the field against us. Such a step would be disastrous. Great Britain, w i t h a n a v y greater than t h a t of any three u a t i o u s , gives them due notice--and the notice will not be disregarded. Were it not for this we would have half of Europe to thrash before being ublo to bring relief to the starving thousands iu Cuba. There never was a time when the two great English-speaking nations were closer together in this friendship. This is evidenced by a speech toade a few days ago by Mr. Joseph Chamberlain, Colonial Secretary. He said: " Tin. time lias arrii eI when Great Britain may be confronted by n combination of lo\\«ra, ami our first tluty, therefore, is to lrm\ all parts of the empire into close umlv.niuloilmen! to maintain the bonds of permanent miily witll our kinsmen across the Atlantic. There is n powerful and generous iiation speaking our language, bred of our race, and having interests identical with ours. I «ould go so far as lo say that, terrible as war may be, even \var itselt would b= cheaply purchased if in a great and noble cause the Stars and Slnpes ami the Union Jack should wave together over nn Anglo-Saxon alliance. It is one of the most satisfactory results of Lord Salisbury's policy that at the present time these two Rreat nation's understand e.ich oilier better than thcv have ever have done Since, over a ccn- lury ago', they were separated by the blunder of n Britisli government. , We will have only one country to flog at this time. This is not a very hard task. EDITORIAL NOTES. Farmers, as a rnle, having disposed of their entire last year's crop of wheat, are more interested in the price of wheat a couple of months hence--wheu they will have a crop ready for market--than they are iu the price to-day. The figure then is likely to be above a dollar per bushel, as tbe world's supply is exceptionally low, and the supply from the coming harvests is not likely to be superabundant, taking the territory of the United States as a criterion. While the acreage is large, the country over, the condition of the growing crop is good only in that part of the country east of the Rocky Moan- tains, that of California and other Pacific States being seriously damaged by drought. It is pretty well assured now that Maryland will have as many bushels of wheat to sell this year as last, and that it will net growers a dollar a bushel. If the farmer gets only a part of a crop of berries and peaches and has dollar wheat in his barn, he ought to be happy. It is thought likely that if the war continues many weeks there will be call for more troops and a d r a f t will be necessary. The m i n i m u m age limit set fur recruits is eighteen years, with consent of their parents, while the maximum limit is forty- five years. A man must be five feet six inches in v height and weigh at least 130- pounds. He ma}' be as big as he pleases, provided his weight is equally distributed Over his body. The height limit for the United States Army is five feet four inches. The committee to draft constitution and by-laws for the Board of Trade for Deutou will make a report to the called meeting, in the grand j n r y room, nest Monday n i g h t . All interested in the town's welfare should attend. Mr. W. Lindsay Marshall has he- come editor of the Cambridge Chronicle, Messrs. E. C. Harrington and W. Laird Henry retiring from journalistic work. [Communicated.] A GREAT POWER. The marvellous eyeuts of the past few days have cut deep lines in the ·world's history. Hereafter the United States will Lave a more significant definition in the vocabulary of European diplomacy. In some indefinite way our country has been recognized by the great powers of Europe as a great nation, her greatness consisting largely in her growth o! population, commercial activity, boldness in invention and y o u t h f u l enthusiasm. But it has never become an ingrained conriction among the powers that we were a great people in the same sense that they assumed to be.great. Now the eyes of the ·world are open. The thunder of tbe heroic Dewey's guns has sent a thrill of wonder and astonishment through every court in Europe, and the American people are henceforth a tro- mondons power in the world's movements, to be reckoned with hereafter in every more on the chess-board of the world's diplomacy. The Amei- ican people are not, as Europeans have imagined, a money-making people only. The same energy and ingenuity and disregard of precedents which characterize them in commercial pursuits are carried by them, with dash and vigor, into the higher realms of activity when the occasion calls loud enough for t h e i r osorcise. Americans at bottom are a serious people. They are capable of the loftiest enthusiasm and of the noblest sacrifice, and are, therefore, a people inspired by sublime ideals, which appeal to that which is highest and noblest in the h u m a n soul. The Germans,in their conflict with France in 1870, showed great energy and determination of purpose. In quick t i m e the German .iriny was over the R h i n e and p u s h i n g on to G r a v e l l o t t o , Sedan and Paris. But Bioinarck and Yon Moltke had been pie paring for ( h e conflict long before the astute Chancellor finally procipitatcd it by a false telugram. The United States probably had no i n t e n t i o n of declaring war against Spain until forced to do so. But when war was once declared, t h o u quickness, energy, duectness of piu- posu characterized every m o v e m e n t . The day war was declared the army moved southward; t h a t same day Cuba wtis blockaded; 123,000 men w e i e enlisted w i t h i n a week; Matan- aas was bombauled, and in less than two weeks after the t h e declaration of war Commander Dewey annihilated tho Spanish fleet in the Pacific and planted the American flag on the P h i l i p p i n e Islands, Spain's richest possessions. European powers have now changed their attitude. It is very difficult for them, however, to f u l l y recognize the fact that they are not to dictate terms to this people. If they could now stop iu and by intervention prevent f u r t h e r less and humiliation to Spain, they would thereby prevent a growth of American power and prestige resulting from f u t u r e victories. Already we are told that w e may anticipate ''the friendly offices of the European powers for the establishment ot peace." But we went iuto this war w i t h o u t "the friendly offices of European powers," and the proposition is to put it t h r o u g h on identical lines. The American people will not brook European interference in this affair. From them we expect no assistance, and the United States has not gone into this war for their benefit. We are coming to a consciousness of our national strength and of our high exiling in history, and dictation from foreign sources will not be tolerated by a people who seek only that which is in harmony with law and justice. American influence in national af- fiiirswilluereafter be of much greater importance thau ever before. Already the prestige of our signal victory has changed the tune of the European press, as the following quotations from an authentic source will clearly show: "Evidently a (.·ouutiy worthy of our distinguished consideration."--London Times. "It is u n f o r t u n a t e that we have not k n o w n them more intimately in the past, but we beg to assure them it has not beeu our fault."--Berlin. TageUatt. "The Americans are a great people and we have always said so."--St. Petersburg News. "As to an alliance with the United States, nothing would give us more satisfaction,"-Vienna Journal. "As we have always held, the United States is one of the greatest of naval powers, and it is some satisfaction to us to know that we have ever been friendly to that great nntiou."-JRomeNational. "Look ing at the matter dispassionately the Suspicion steals upon us that we may have done the pig Yankees some injustice."--Madrid Liberal. Such is t h e present sentiment of Europe. Surely as the time rolls by the American nation is coming to her destined position among the nations of the earth. Heaven has evidently marked out our path in the world's drama and if as a nation wo are true to the principles of God and justice, and seek civic righteousness, we will, as a nation, be great aud glorious in all that makes for national power and true nobility. PATRIOT. The Westerfield (Ind.) News prints the following in regard to an old resident of that place: "Frank McAvoy, for m a u y years in the employ of t h e L . , N . A. C. Ry., here, says: 'I have used Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy for teu years or longer--am never without it in my family. I consider it the best remedy of the kind manufactured. I take pleasure in recommending it.'" It is a speciGc for all bowel disorders. For sale by Hugh Duffey, Hillsboro; R. J. Colston Ridgely; W. E. Brown, Deutou. * ··» '·It IB the llest on Kurtfi."

Colston, Ridgely; W. E. Brown, Denton. WANAMAKEITS PHILADELPHIA, Monday, may ie, isos. The sudden rise of wheat does not apply to dry goods. Contracts for American-made dry goods, entered into long before the war, are like the good pumps at Fairmount, constantly pumping into stock the new goods. Taking off the ocean carriers, the St. Paul and other steamships, has not interfered with our supplies of French, English and German goods. Good merchants, or merchants true to their customers' interests, must buy goods on either side of the sea, wherever they are made best, at most reasonable prices. With all the bombast and brag of demagogues about buying only home manufactures, not one customer in ten thousand, working people included, asks where goods are made. They want them cheap, cheap, cheap. And forty years' experience proves that not one person in twenty thousand will pay more for American makes than the goods unfortunately underrated in" the tariff bills that come through the Custom House from foreign shores--cheaper than the manufacturers choose to make them in America. Facts are facts, and there is no getting away from actual and stubborn facts. This store is run to serve its patrons as the surest way tn cervp its These are busy days for us. Our good merchandise is wanted and we want to seive our customers well with all the resources of our New York, Paris and Philadelphia houses. Stylish goods are notscarce here. 'With larger sales right along, of course we made larger pieparations in stocks, and, war or no war, people will need the classes of goods we supply. No advantage will be taken of the absence of full stocks in many places by putting up prices. Thisisanall-the-year-'round-every- year store. More and more people find out each year the painstaking of this store in providing the proper classes of goods, and long dealing with our old manufacture! s makes them very good to us in choice and care in what they deliver to us. You may depend on our best service when you take away goods on purchasing, or when you bring them back should they fail to please. BICYCLES--Fair Prices No Nonsense -' We are principal sellers of bicycles. Because we sell the several best- value wheels at absolutely fair prices. Bicycles today are the result of evolution. Bicycle prices, the result of revolution. We believed that many wheels sold at small profit would yield more dollars than the necessarily few wheels that could be sold at large profit. This was not price cutting -- it was bringing business experience to bear on the selling of sporting goods. It won! We never built a bicycle, because the few fine factories, built and developed at a cost of millions, can build them better. We never bought parts, to be assembled and then sold as "Wanamaker Bicycles." Such a course is nonsensical. We give the usual trade guarantee card, because it is wanted. But the chief guarantee is the fact, k n o w n country-wide, that we won't sell trash. The wheels we sell are proved -are the several dependable kinds. They are durable; they will not fail you; they will need almost no trips to a repair shop. And so we have come to be generally conceded as Bicycle Headquarters. We shall do the business better and better; we shall do more of it -- though last year we sold seventeen thousand bicyles -- every one nt retail. A thoroughly satisfactory BICYCLE SCHOOL is maintained. Careful teachers give really helpful lessons, at 25c. Butthe main business is to supply bicycles -- from THE WORLD'S BEST-- THE HUMBER --AT to the staunch and satisfactory Rodman -- men's at S?0; women's at S31.50.
