MELVIN, STEELE JOHNSON E D I T O R S A N D PROPRIETORS. SATURDAY MORNING, JUNE! 18, 1898 EDITORIAL NOTES. Major-General Merritt, who is t be Governor-General of the P h i l i p pine Islands, in au after-diune speech at San Francisco, some day ago, a n n o u n c e d that the governmen lias already defined its policy iu ref erence to territory captuied d u r i n the piosent w a r n i t h Spain, and tha the new n a t i o n a l policy was to es tnblish colonial g o v e r n m e n t of ul ot it. In so m a n y words, the pleii of humanity was but a pretext for war of conquest. General Merrit did not speak with any authority on the subject, and h i s lem.irks wer i l l - t i m e d .and in bad tnstc. Tho mill t.iry officials would be s-liou-Mffh indeed if they did not ditect the holding, d u r i n g hostilities, of everj point of vantage gained, to the end that the object of the war may b more quickly accomplished; but thi exigencies of -nar and a policy in time of peace are altogether differ ent matters. The government hac Letter muzzle its mouth-fighting major-generals, and issue its policy whether of war, peace, invasion, oc cupation, or whatsoever it is, thro proper channels, and in season. The war will impose a tremendous re spousibility upon the people, who alone make our policies, and they will mei't the questions arising ou of the Spanish-American war in the spirit' of fairness and broadness characteristic of them. In t he meantime, they are in fav^r of fighting the war to a quick conclusion, am taking care of all questions when they come up, not before. Rev. Madibon C. Pctors, a Presbyterian minister, was cue of the speakers at the dedication of tho picturesque Druid Ridg-e cemetery Sy'kesville, on Saturday. Some truths in relation to funerals ho expressed with boldness quite u n usual: He said: "Todo away with the excess of flowers, and, above All - vritli cvepe veils," he said, "is what ·we want. Fashionable mourning is the greatest possible satire ou grief. It expresses hopelessness instead of --faith. "In New York I have seen mourning- put on dojs and tho coachman is also dressed udiculous- ly. If you have flowers give them to your friends while they are alive. Avoid all unnecessary display and expense. Deliver me from f u n e r a l addresses. The- worse a man is the more pood you have to say about him. It brings ridicule upon the church." Young Leiter, of Chicago, has thrown up his job of corneiing the wheat supply of this country; and in summing up results to himself finds that he has much more experience and much less cash t h a n he bad a year ago. He has paid dearly for the notoriety he enjoys, and the bread-eaters have paid pretty dearly for it also. Where are the counterbalancing good results to the people? They do not appear. On tho contrary, they furnished the money (a cent for each pound of flour consumed) for the big gambling game out of which Leiter came far troui first best. In years to come Leiter .trill be k n o w n as the fellow who "went up like a rocket and come down like a stick," or "on eagle's wings he soared aloft, and lit ou daddy's wood-pile." A handsome monument', to the memory of Frauds Seott Key, will soon be completed at Frederick, -Maryland. In the historic cemetery in that city the corner-stone of the monument was laid, with impressive patriotic ceremonies on Tuesday last, and vast throngs of people, from various parts of the State a.nd -l-country were present. jOf more en- · ; ,during qualities that the great mar- ^,ble shaft, however, is the beautiful song, "The Star Spangled Banner," .whose inspiring notes have so often stirred our hearts. At the dedication of the Nebraska building of tbe Trans-Mississippi Exposition ou Tuesday last Hon. Wm. J. Bryan spoke and declared the war is not one of conquest. He said the war is for h u m a n i t y and not for the extension of United States territory. In concluding, he said the manifest destiny of this nation is not to acquire new realms to govern, but to carry out the fundamental principles of Democracy to the end that equality among all citizens may be secured. - It is stated that the recent heavy orders from the Government have "cleaned up" the market for canned tomatoes, and it is predicted t h a t , prices will be higher than usual. Tbeproprietorsofthe packing-houses are getting ready for a heavy o u t p u t . The mercantile business is brisk in many of tbe towns and villages on the Peninsula just now. Thu small fruits have already brought much money 'into circulation, aud everybody feels the benefit. Tuesday was.the 122d anniversary of the adoption of the stars and stripes as the country's flag. Ihe event was fittingly recognized in many parts of the country. MissEvangolineCisneros was mar- liod at Baltimore Thursday to Carlos F. Carbonell, who aided her escape from a Spanish prison. The promised millions in the great wheat deal were not made -- by Joe. THE NEW STAMP ACT. Tlie effect on i n d i v i d u a l s of the n e w w a r i c v c u n o b i l l , which will go i n t o effect about the (iist of July, is something that a very small proportion of the general public has given any thought to. In fact, thoie has been little opportunity to study the provisions of the bill, and it is doubt- f u l if one-fourth of the people will have the chance to inform themselves m i e g a r d t o the stamp act, which it will be necessary for all busines men to know, before the time set fo the law to go into effect as abov mentioned, as stamps will be re quiveil on bank cheeks, deeds, mov gages and all conveyances, notes leases,'etc-, to be put on at the tim of making. Stamps may be obtain ed of the collector of intemal reve iiue, iu q u a n t i t y , or from the bank and postoffict-s of the county, whe required, and it is probable that th ilmg stores will keep them on sulo tor public convenience. Merchant \\ill take care to protect themserve against loss of the cost of the stain requited on articles they sell and th consumer need not inform them selves too thoroughly on this poinl if they want to be comfortable. Tho; will find that the tax is there all righ on proprietary medicines, tea, to bacco, cigarettes, etc. The tax o oue cent on each telephone message costing 15 cents and over, and on cent each for telegraphic messages t lie tax on insurance policies, an the inheritance tax are of genera importance aud local interest. Th stamp on bank checks is two cent each, w i t h o u t regard to amount During the civil war, when ther was a tax on bank checks, the bank expedited the stamping by agree ment with the government whereb; they were allowed to stamp them selves whole books of checks, which \\ere sold to customers for about th value of the stamps. This methoi will not, in all probability, be adopt ed by the banks at the outset, and users of checks will have to provide themselves with stamps and do tbeii own licking and sticking. Some o! t h e other stamps required are asfol lows: Bill of exchange or draft, L. c e n t s when over $100, and 2 cents tor each additional $100. Protest of note, bill or cheeky '25 cents. Lifo insurance policies, 10 cents for each $100 or fractional part thereof, anc fire insurance policies, one-half con on each dollar of premium. Leases for lauds or tenements 25 cents for one year, 50 cents up to ^hree years and $1 when over three years. Mort ages, over $1000 and not over $1500 25 cents, and 25 cents for each addi uonal $500. Proxies for voting for officers of a company, 10 cents Powers of attorney for real estate 25 cents. Deeds, 50 cents for over $100 and up to $500, and 50 for eacl $500 or fraction thereof. Receipts for money over $5, 1 cent. Proprie tary medicines, perfumery, costnet ics, if not sold under patent right or trade mark, on every box or phia sold for 10 to 25 cents, Icent; 25 anc 50, 2 cents; 50and 75,3 cents; 75 anc !'!., 4 cents, and 2 cents for each 5( cents above $1. Articles on li;im tain ped when sold at retail. The government will be taxed to the utmost o provide the millions of stamps, nl the hundreds of different kinds, that \v ill be required during the first week of the law's operation. The full text of the stamp act will be distributed, t is supposed, daring the coming week. Summer Outings.

His pilgrimage is ended, His work is finished now; We trust a crown of glory Will rest upon his brow. He has passed through the xalle And through the shadow too, He Tound the staff to comfort, And the rod to lend him through. His head was silvered over With the frost of many years, He had his share of sorrows, For life lias many cares. But yet, his Maker ga\e him Much to be thankful for; He gave him peace and plenty Aud years fourscore and more. And when Ills Master called him, lie could say "Thy will be done," The battle's fought and o\ er, The victory has been won. A VKIBND. WANAMAKER'S PHILADELPHIA, Monday, June 13, 1893.
