If you want to rent houses or rooms, It you want to sell anything, If you want to flnd any lost article, Advertise in the Telegraph. OK Col. Billy Bryan the New York Tribune, says: "In war he did no lighting; in peace he does much talking." That's It to a dot. DKMOCKATK; opposition to the retention of tho Philippines has simmered down to this: Because the Republican party is in power. Had the Democratic party Been in power they wonld have been rabid territorial expansionists. BRYAN is against the annexation of the Philippine Islands, but is in favor of keeping a military government there until the natives are able to "organize a stable government." Can the public see much difference between Bryan's Idea and [annexation? Ex-Gov. Wm. J. Stone, of Missouri, holds to the same idea. Annexation will be just the same when called by any other name. THE American Peace Oommlsslon- ers sailed today from Southampton on the American liner St. Louis. They will arrive In New York next Thursday or Friday. The commiseion consists of ex-Secretary of State Wm. K. Day, President, Senators Davis of Minnesota, Frye of Maine, Gray of Delaware, ana Hon. Whitelaw Reid of Now York. Their work has been well done, and .they are entitled to the thanks of the nation. Tttt AlTON RUMORS Conceroltij the Sale of the Railway. A telegram from New Yojk states that the Gould and Vanderbllt interests are out of the deal to buy the Ohlcago & Alton railway, and that tho Union Pacific Is likely to acquire this properly. Another report from Chicago states that it is probable, however, that the stock held by the Mitchells, M. h.. JesBtip, and a few others, which has been for sale and to dispose of which John J. Mitchell, President of the Illinois Trust and Savings Bank, haa gone to New York, has passed into the hands of the Vanderbilts or J. Pierpont Morgan, who is tho financial agent of the Vanderbilts. This, of coure.e would not give them a controlling interest of the Alton, but it would give them representation on tho Board of Directors and a voice in the management of the property, with the expectation they may secure control later on. In no event, how- over, is a practical consolidation wiih any of the present Vanderbllt rondo contemplated. ______ Tor Men Only. Surprise your wife with a truly useful present.

Mr. Edward Q. Yungok, of North Alton, a mall clerk on the Vandalia line, sends the TELEGRAPH tbe following concerning the burning of a mall oar at Efflngham on Friday: A mall oar on the Vandalia line was discovered to be on fire when we arrived at Efllogham today on our way west. Train No. 5, the mail train on which I run, has three mail oars: two storage mail cars aud one working oar. All the ole-zke were in the working car when the forward car was Been to be on fire. The car was badly damaged and between 100 and 200 sacks of mall destroyed. The Efflogham lire department did elllolent work. The mall cars were in charge of Olerk Ball, of Indianapolis, with Pryor, Olark and Yungck as second, third and fourth clerks. No ono knows bow the fire originated, but it is supposed to have started from the stove, aa that end of tbe car was damaged most. This Is a terrible mess and I suppose aome very sharp questions will have to be answered.
