AmouR the Interesting notes that
como from Manila, the only part of tho
Phlllpplnea which can bo safd to havo
reached a position where progress In
civilization Is a factor, Is tho announce
ment of tho estRb-shlng of a tlnlly
nowspnpor, the Trlbuno, In Umt city.
Sotno account of this !b given by nn
editorial writer of tho Evening Sun, of
New York, from which tho following
Tho Trlbuno, an "Exponent of True
Americanism," published at the price
per copy of "C cents gold," Is n plant
of sturdy growth, nnd Judging from tho
ndvcrtlsomcnts the publisher must bo
living on tho fat of the land nnd tho
editor must be a personage. It has a
war correspondent nt tho front who
signs his pieces and supplies news
enougu to make a good showing on the
front page. It devotes several columns
to sport, chiefly horso raring nnd tho
manly art of self-dcfcnsd. The Items
aro five or bIx weeks old and culled
from the latest American papers, but
cable tolls nro too heavy for an experi
ment llko tho Tribune. It has nt least
ono cdltorlnl every day, which, as
might bn expected, Is optimistic lit
tono and avoids criticism of the mili
tary government. Tho local news Is
very creditable to tno Tribune's re
porter, who has a good noso for an
item and makes tho most of It. To help
him out tho copy editor double, lends
all his stories am. writes sub-heads for
them. Tho Trlbuno has no market io
ports yet, but as Its readers aro Ameri
can soldiers nnd department clerks the
deficiency Is no groat handicap. Out
tho most Interesting columnx In this
Manila newspaper are thoso In which
tho advertisements appear. In tho
present state of Ameilcnn trade, In Its
Infancy, they enter to the wants of the
hungry, tho thirsty and tho amuse
ment seekers, but hero and thcro Is nn
advertisement which Indicates that the
American advertiser has como to stay.

FRENCH POLITICS MIXED.
Paris, May 19. Tho unexpected re
sult of tho Paris municipal elections,
so unfavorable to the Government, has
thrown Franco Into n state of political
uncertainty, which the reassembling of
tho Chamber of Deputies on Tuesday
will help to clear up. Tho opening de

Ministry In the proceeding nt tho

ment by calling the attention of the
Chamber to tho speech of Joseph Roln

tho Ministry according to which tho
Dreyfus affair will bo revived after the
After 11 week's cuicful Investigation
by tho police, no trace has been found
of tho alleged abductors of tho author
ed "Oyp" (Comtesse do Jam Mo) nor
of tho mysterious chateau in which she
averts she was held a prisoner. There
aro not lacking persons who nre skep
tical, especially as "Oyp" admits sho
, Is not suro sho could recognize tho
chateau of her nbduetois. The police
have mado a number of night excur
sions In company with "Gyp" over tho
possible area wherein tho chateau
might bo situated. Many amusing Inci
dents have been tho result, but tho
search has been without practical out
come. Though more than a month has gone
by since the opening of the exposition,
there are still very Important exhibits
which havo not been opened to tho
public and lnrgo sections remain In tho
hands of tho workmen. The effective
night Illumination of tho building nnd
grounds, which was to bo ono of tho
most attractive features, Is still de
layed. The statement Is not over
drawn that another month must elapse

tirety. . ,
TO ASSIST MINISTERS.
St, Louis, May 1U. At tho third day's
session of tho Presbyterian General As
sembly today icports on rollcf for dis
abled ministers nnd widows and or
phans of deceased ministers, nnd also
on tho method of appointing staudlng
committees of tho nssembly, othcrwlso
known as tho "Peoria Overture," wcro
A report on ministerial relief was
presented by Elder Lewis H. Sever
ance of Cleveland, O., who showed that
tho contributions of tho church had
neither kept pace with tho advance of
tho church nor with tho advance of tho
roll of annuitants, ho declared that
tho churches should very largely In
crease their usual contributions to tho
church. Twenty-live thousand dollars
moro was called for In contributions
this year tnan was paid last year, to
mako ihe appropriations that will be
required by the various presbyteries.
Hov. licnjamln A. Agnew, D .D., sec
retary of tho Hoard of Ministerial Ho
lief, tnudo an eloquent pica on behalf
of tho ministerial fund. Ho gave a long
array of statistics, showing that tho
board had on tho roll today ono minis
tor's family to every eight ministers
on tho roll of tho General Assembly.
In 18C0 tho uoard had only ono mlnlal
tcr's family on tne roll to overy elghty
soven ministers In the Assembly.

aro mostly Filipinos nnd Chinese, but
occasionally an American soldier gets
liuo trouble. For Instance, Joe

revolver fiom n fellow soldier, Is dis
charged for lack of evidence. It seems
"It was a case of borrowing Instead of
larceny, tho owner being 'full' nt tho
time nnd having forgotten all about
tho affair." Tho native offenders nro
usually arraigned for violating muni
cipal ordinances, enlclly tho propria-
tics, Tho lines range from one dollar ,
for appearing on tho streets "barely be-
youd the Eden's state," to three dollars
for being out after curfew time, and to
flvo dollars for "having n dirty house."

Bangor, Me., .May 19. A six-mast d
schooner which Is being built In the
yard of Percy & Small at Bath Is an
object of great Interest, and thousands
have come from distant points to see
what sho looks like. This big schoon
er Is 301 feet Cinches long on the keel,
GO feet In the beam and 28 feet, ucep,
and they flguro that she will measure
about 300 tons gross, or about 2730
tons net. This Is larger than some of
tho big ships launched nt Bath In re
The schooner's keel Is the longest
ever laid for a wooden vessel on the
Kennebec, being six Inches longer than
the keel of the ship Roanoke, tho larg
est ship ever built In Maine. She Is not
much longer than tho flve-ma .l
schooucr John B. Prcscott, but Is six
feet wider and flvo feet deeper and Is
expected to carry 5200 tons of coal to
the Prcscott's 1400.
This monster schooner will be
launched early In August. Before that,
however, n slx-tnastcr now In coursu of
construction nt Camden on Penobscot
bay, will bo in tho water, It being
planned tn launch her on July 4th. Tho
Camden people say their schooner will
bo bigger than that nt Bath, Just ns

Philadelphia, Mny 19. A continu
ous fnll of rain today caused n post
ponement of tho dual games between
tho University of California and tho
University of Pennsylvania nnd nlso
the baseball gamo between Pennsyl
vania and Harvard. An effort will be
mado to arrango a future date with
California, nnd Harvard has asked per
mission from Cambridge to remain un
til Monday to play tho game.
Thero was great disappointment In
the camp of tho Callfornlnns, ns they
wcro anxious to bco Plaw, tho pride of
California, compete with MeCrnckcn,
the champion of the East. These two
stars will meet In the intercollegiate
contests next Saturday.
On Monday tho wearers of the blue
and gold will start training for the
Mott Haven games. A chnllcngo has
been sent to Georgetown University,
hut an yet no answer has been received.
If they accept tho games will take placo
on Monday. California stands a very
ggod chance of winning from George

After much negotiations it has been
decided to meet Pennsylvania on Mon
day, May 28. Tho baseball gamo be
tween Pennsylvania nnd Harvard also
has been postponed until tho afternoon
of this date.

When Mark Twain Ij
Was An Editor
The Buffalo Express thus recalls tho
dnys when Mark Twain was tho editor
of that Journnl:
Ills general attitudo toward tho pa
per was rather that of a contributor
than Its editor. Ho eschewed politics
entirely, knowing llttlo and caring less
about public men and public Issues.
In tho fall of 1809 tho Republican Statu
Convention was held nt Saratoga, and
when tho news came of tho nomina
tions, Mark Twain felt called upon to
comment cdltorlnlly upon them, the
Express being n strong party paper.
So, under tho caption, "Tho Ticket
Explanation," he, the editor of the
Express, wroto tho following, which
was duly published:
"Under tho proper head will be
found tho telegram from tho Stnto con
vention announcing tho nominations.
As tho political editor of this paper.
Mr. Lnrncd, Is absent tending that con
vention, nnd as I do not know much
about politics, nnd am not sitting up
nights to" learn I shall dis
creetly hold my peace. I nm satisfied
that theso nominations nro all right
and Bound, nnd that they nro tho only
ones that can bring peaco to our dis
tracted country (tho only political
phraso I am perfectly familiar with
and competent to hurl nt tho public
with fearless confidence tho other
editor Is full of them;) but being mere
ly satisfied Isn't Bnfo enough. I always
llko to know before I shout.
"Hut I go for Mr. Curtis with all my
xtrcngth! Being certain of him, I here
by shout nil I know how. But the
others may bo n split ticket or n
scratched ticket, or whatever you may
call It. I will let It alone for tho pres
ent. It will keep. Tho other young
man will be back tomorrow, nnd ho
will shout for It, hpllt or no split rest
ur.su red of that. Ho will pranco Into
this political ting with his tomalmwk
and his wnrwhoop, nnd then you will
hear a crash nnd sec the scalps fly. He
knows all about theso nominees and
If ho don't ho will let on to In such n
natural manner ns to deceive tho most
ciltknl. He knows everything ho
knows moro than Webster's Unabridg
ed and tho American Encyclopedia
but whether ho knows anything nbout
a subject or not ho Is perfectly willing
to discuss It.
"When he gets back he will tell you
all nbout these candidates ns serenely
ns If ho had been acquainted with them
a hundred years; though, speaking
confidentially, I doubt If he ever beard
of any of them until today. I am right
well satisfied It Is a good, sound, sensi
ble) ticket, nnd a ticket to win but
wait till ho comes. In tho meantime, I
go for George William Curtis, and take
islcely furnished rooms at tho Pop
