The magnlQcent building - at tbe corner of Eighteenth and Arch streets Philadelphia, is a monument that tella what a great charity lathe Women's Christian Association of the Quaker City. The Superintendent of tbe W. 0. A. home is the accomplished woman whose portrait is printed here, Mies' Katharine Kennedy. What she baa done and what she la doing for the benefit of other; women commands tbe highest respect bnd admiration. In all other inatitutiona ot this kind more attention is given every year to teaching tbe laws of health |and right living, physically as well as morally. The Health of communities Is more and more frequently a subject of at. tention from clergymen and teachers, An ailing, nervous man or woman finds it more difficult to be hopeful and cheerful and good than a well one. Writing to the Wells & Richardson Oompany, who are the proprietors of the moat wonderful pi all remedies for tbe cure ot diseases that: arise from the impairment of tbe nervom system, Faine'a celery compound, Miss Kennedy, in toe course of her letter, referring to tbe use of Paiae'a celery I compound among the members of tbe W. 0. A., says that "those who have been taking it feel greatly benefited, and desire to continue the use of it." I So many women run down in health by overwork, or what la worse, over- worry, have been restored to perfect health by Paine's celery compound, that' its record in the Philadelphia home has been duplicated in every large city in tbe Union. Qrateiul testimonials of this character have been published time and again in these columns, and it Is a fact that no other •remedy has ever received a hundredth of tbe hearty blessings that tbe managers of public institutions have openly accord* d to Paine'd 'celery compound. The widespread use of Palne's 1 • Celery compound, in the most intelligent, careful homes, and among the most thoughtful portions of every community, has grewn up by Just this sort of personal guarantee, by word of mouth, from persons made strong add. well to others needing exactly "the kind of invigoration aud toning np that Paine's celery compound gives. In time ot great mental strain, when other remedies only weddle.and muddle, Palne'a celery cortiponnd feeds tbe hard-pressed n rvea. Palne'a celery compound purifies the blood of all bad humorc. and cures the many ailments from this familiar cause. A vast proportion of .all diseases are preventrble. Paine's celery compound fa universally prescribed by medical men to stop the progress of disorders, doe to poor blood and badly nourish, ed nerves, THE HOLIDAY SEASON la at band at Marsh's Drug Store.

Foi our part we have always been aware that there are difficulties In the way of adopting' the 'open door' as that policy Is usually understood here. But we have never for an Instant doubted the sincerity of the United States government or Its ability to devise some means of substantially securing the results aimed at. Secretary Hay explains that the ordinary American tariff will be enforced against everybody. For all International purposes that la the 'open ^oor* policy. Economical purists may argue that as the tariff restricts trada the door Is only partially open; but whatever force that argument holds, It Is of purely domestic application. Ka»«noe of the Open Koor Policy. "Equality ot treatment and absence of differential duties are the essence of the 'open dooc' policy as between nation and nation. Revenue Is Indispensable and 'It Is Immaterial to the trading- world whether this be raised at ports of entry or by Internal taxation." The editorial proceeds to argue as follows: "Though gome amendment of the constitution may perhaps be necessary to, legitimatize the novel policy of governing by protectorate It would not be necessary tnerely to settle the details of fiscal legislation. What appears to be wanted is less an alteration of the constitution than an extension of the powers of the executive for purposes not contemplated when the constitution was framed. In any cage, In the present enthusiastic expansion mood of the American people, those technical difficulties are not likely to prove troublesome." Dally New* Baa Some Comment. London, Nov. 26.—The Dally News in an editorial referring to the "open door" policy In the Philippines and the constitutional difficulty It presents to America, says: "In the United States themselves opinion Is sharply divided over the future of the Philippines. Enthusiasm for American expansion will be considerably abated If It means' afpro- portlonate extension of the Dlngley tariff." ; Agniiclllo Coming tu Washington. Paris, Nov. 25.—It is said that Agon- clllo, the representative of Agulnaldo's •government, Is going to Washington to ^ascertain the Intentions of the United States. MOVING DAY ON THE IStK OF CUBA IU Approach Heralded In * Number of W»y»—Dons Hurrying Evacuation. Havana, Nov. 25.—The last few days have seen a revival of activity In every tiuarter. Things appear to take on more definite forms in every branch of military occupation. Here at Havana wharves are being built and railway connections made. Tho camps chosen have actually begun to be constructed. Government boats and supplies are arriving and the first Installment of United States troops IB expected on Friday. At the custom house the archives are being packed hurriedly preparatory to turning 1 over the building to the American authorities. The best energies of the Spaniards now seem bent upon an Immediate evacuation of tbe island. All this has had a salutary effect upon the general itone of commercial and social life In the city, which looks to the Immediate, future for relief from a long season of doubt and stagnation. Senot Qlranta, secretary of the Spanish evacuation commission, has delivered two notes to the United States commissioners. The first announced that the troops In the province of PInar del Rio and the province of Havana would embark for Spain at the city of Havana; that those In Matanzas province would embark at Matanzas City, and those In the province of Santa Clara at Clenfuegos. The other note announced that the Trinidad division would be evacuated at the end of November, and the Sinictl Splrltus division on Dec. 3, both divisions belonging to Santa Clara province.. The (Irst Thanksgiving Day dinner InlHavnna under the new regime was given at the Hotel Pasajc. Covers were laid for more than 100 guests, American and English. The alarming Increase In vice and crime renders it unsafe to walk the streets unarmed or unprotected after nightfall. The police reports 'show scores of. "hold-ups," murders, burglaries and highway robberies. Corruption, bribery and wholesale stealing In the military and civil administrations continue unchecked. Some Insight Into the condition of municipal affairs can be gained from the following; The regulation; hours for killing at the slaughter houses arc during the afternoon, but B special permit entitles certain contractors to slaughter one head each mornjng for which those who have the privilege pay a prewcrllied fee. As a matter of fact over 100 head are killed every day : before noon, the fees for which, exceeding $250, never find their way Into the city treasury. (lot n Itraken Itlb In a Plglit. Syracuse, N.

Monticello, Ga., Nov. 25.—Ed Merriwether, a negro who was lynched Tuesday, confessed before he was hanged to the murder of a young white man, and said three other negroes—Irvin Chancy, Jake Glover and Mary Ramey—assisted him. After disposing of Mcrrlwether the mob rushed back to the jail to get the other negroes who had been arrested on sucplclon. Ropes were put around their necks and they were dragged to the place where Merriwether's bullet- riddled body was hanging. A large number of citizens had heard of the effort to lynch the other three negroes and they hurried to the scene. It was only by the most vigorous efforts that this lynching was prevented. One of the negroes was about to be drawn up on a limb when a young white man Jumped forward and cut the rope. The mob then gave up and the three ne- groes were turned over to the sheriff.

A ipoclflo for Incipient Washington, Nov. 25.— The commission appointed by the president to recommend a form of government for the Hawaiian Islands as a part o f the United States met In Cullom'B committee room at tbe Capitol yesterday for the first time since leaving Honolulu, Senators Cullom and Morgan, Representative Hilt, and Judge F.-car being present. The legislation which will be recommended by the commission will be Included In a bill which to all Intents and purposes will be an enabling act, and very much like the bills providing for the admission of new states Into the Union except In the one Important detail that It provides for tho admission of a territory, and not a state. One of the report's Important features Is a recommendation that the gystem of Importing laborers under con. tracts shall be discontinued. Cannot Continue Coolie Labor. The commissioners have concluded that as the system Is contrary to the laws applying to this country as a whole It would not be wise to continue It even temporarily In Hawaii. It Is understood that a majority at least of the members of the commission do not accept the theory that Americans and Europeans cannot do manual labor In the Islands. The commission will recommend a regular territorial form of government with a governor, a delegate in congress, and n legislature. The legislature will be elected by the qualified voters of the islands, but there will be property and educational qualifications Imposed upon those who vote for members of the upper huune of the legls'ature. The franchise will not be extended to the Japanese or Chinese In the Island, but the Portuguese who become citizens will not be excluded under the restrictions imposed. HnwnliaiiB 1'rcfVr the System. Justice Frear, one of the commissioners, said as to the solution of the coolie labor problem in Hawaii: "Under the present law coolie labor can be Imported. Our people, if left to their own choice, would prefer to continue this system, but we will not hesitate to give It up if required. We realize that the stability of government will be so largely Increased under annexation that we could afford to amend our labor laws and sacrifice chjeap labor. Aa a matter of fact our planters are now starting In to make a serious attempt to introduce white laborers. Some have already been brought In from California, ar.d It Is believed the experiment will succeed. Gomper» Calls on the President. Washington, Nov. 25. — Samuel J. Gompcrs, president of the American Federation of Labor, accompanied by the secretary of the federation, had an hour's conference with the president yesterday in regard to legislation In the Interest of labor now pending In congress. Gompers' purpose was to secure, If possible, the Indorsement of these measures in the president's forthcoming message to congress. The president was deeply Interested in Gompers' remarks, and without indicating what specific recommendations would be made In his message on these subjects said that he regarded it the duty of every man, whether in public or private life, to use every effort In his power to Improve the condition of the workingman, and to bridge the cha'sm between him and his employer Urges tlie Eight- llour- Day Law. Gompers favored the eight-hour law which limits a day's work to eight hours, whether the work Is being done directly by the government or by contractors, and the bill having for its object tho Improvement in the condition of American seamen. The bill gives to seamnn the right to leave a vessel when she Is In safe harbor, and abolishes ocr- poral punishment. He also urged the Lodge Immigration bill, which limits Immigration to persons who can read and write, and the convict labor bill, which prohibits the transportation of the product of convict labor from one state to another TWO FIUSSIDKNTS KXCIIANOB CALLS MoKlnley Vlalts Igleslas and the Latter KeturUB the Compliment, Washington, Nov. 26. — President Igleslus, of Costa Hlca, arrived here yesterday afternoon, and although traveling Incognito he was accorded all the honors lilting to the visit of the president of a sovereign government and a sister republic.
