Just now tue desperate light which

cunning of Harry Hawes, police com
missioner ot St, Louis, are the two
thing giving prominence to the fact
that . a superhuman effort is being
made to distract public attention from
the odium which boodllng Investiga
tion and grand jury Indictments have
thrown upon the dominant party In
Missouri politics. It's a huge effort
to hide the shells after the robbery ot
the nest lias been discovered. So it is
urged that Mlsouri has climbed from
twentieth place to fifth. It might al
so be properly urged In rebuttal that
in spite of Its Democratic handicap,
Mlsouri has advanced to Its present
A party whose leaders in politics
have reached the past master's art In
extorting the sheckels by devising, In
venting and Introducing bills and laws
hostile to corporations, by birthing
imaginary health societies, and forming
legislative combines, should not be al
lowed by the public to escape con vie
tlon by emphasizing the fact that
few Republicans have been found In
the same cptegory. It is Just that
very thing that the Democratic ma
chine is trying to do.
Both Reed nA Hawes are essenti
ally machine candidates, and are put
forward on the basic principle that
either way the machine wins. Their
labors are thus divided.
The spell-blndlng mayor insists that
hondiinsr is not an issue, that tho
great stole Is slandered, that all Dera
ocrats are honest, and only the Re
publican minority are thieves. Then
Hawes jumps Into print and Insists
that the republicans are at the bottom
of all this muss, stirring up strife and
fomenting discord. He further in
slats that the minor party Is trying to
force upon the Democracy an undesir
able candidate for governor. All of
which Is being done for the two-fold
purpose, first, that the machine may
organise the party ao as to prevent
the nomination of the 8L Louis clr
. cult attorney, J. W. Folk, and second
to lull the people Into peaceful for

ruptableness with which the state has
Now, the Kansas City mayor Is,
strange to soy, an Iowa carpet-bagger,

lice commissioner is a rank youngster,
still showing the freshness ot the but

reason for allowing either of them
even .a shadowy pretense for the ar

the circumstance that the "push" is
hard pressed and Its affairs bordering
on a crisis.

8HIPPINQ RULE OF VALUE.
Wis Regulation Enforced by the New
A new set of shipping regulations
recently formulated in New Zealand
gives proof of the maternal care with
which the government looks after the
welfare of the people. Every sea-go
ing vessel that can be controlled by
the local authority must for tho future
carry a boat or raft fully fitted up with
provisions for use In case of acci
dent. Provision Is made for a supply
ot fresh water and of beef, biscuits,
chocolate, tabloids and lime juice, and
also ot fishing lines and hooks and
safety matches. So many desperate
tragedies have occurred around the
New Zealand coast from time to time
after shipwrecks, through the difficul
ty of getting living necessaries into
the boats in the rush and excitement
of escaping, that the new regulation
In this regard seems to be a wise pre
caution. It is noteworthy that neither
rum nor tobacco Is Included In the
terns of this novel "manifest."
A YOUNQ ENGLISH PEER.
Duke of Lelnster, Premier of Ireland,
Is 18 Years Old.
The duke ot Lelnster is one of the
youngest peers In King Edward s
realm. He Is 16 years old and Is the
premier peer of the kingdom of Ire
land and head of the great Irian house
of Fitzgerald, which for hundreds of
years has played bo conspicuous a
role In the history of the emerald
Isle. He Is a great grand nephew ot
the patriot. Lord Edward, tho hero and
martyr of the '98 rebellion. During his
school days the young peer 'was one
ot the leading boys at Eton in all
sorts of athletics, but he developed
signs of consumption, the malady that
carried off both his father and mother,
and left him the youngest duke in the
English peerage when barely 6 years
old, and now every precaution Is being
taken to preserve htm for the great
things that may be expected from one
ot his brilliant ancestry.
Mountain of Alum.
Ia China, about twelve miles from
the village of Lion Chek, there Is a
mountain of alum, which, In addition
to being a natural curiosity. Is
source ot wealth for the Inhabitants
ot the country, who dig from It yearly
tons ot alum. The mountain Is not
less than ten miles In circumference
at- its base and has a height of nearly
2,000 feet. The alum is obtained by
quarrying large blocks of atone, which
are first heated In great furnaces and
then In vats filled with boiling water,
The alum crystallxes and forms a lay
er about six Inches In thickness. This
layer Is subsequently broken up Into
blocks weighing about ten pounds
