It is gratifying to announce that for
tbe first time In twenty years the "Star"
has been compelled to withdraw its claim
of having a larger circulation than all tho
other Washington dailies combined. This
It did last Saturday. The "Star" does not
acknowledge, however, that its circula
tion Is less than Tho Times, although a
strict adherence to the trulb would neces
sitate that admission. Tho aggregate
circulation of tbr;-f'Star" last week was
only 173.13G, while The T'mes had n bona

SUGAU TDTJST STEALING.
On September first the British steamer
Falkland arrived at Philadelphia with
12,483 baskets of sugar, but because the
lugar trust would nut purchase the cargo
except on its own terms the vessel was
compelled to anchor off the Delaware
breakwater and submit to a demurrage of
a loss the owner of the cargo yesterday
succumbed to the terms of the trust and
sold the sugar for a less price than was
originally offered on Its arrival in this
country. In other words, the sugar trust
charged up and collected a fine on (he
sugar liecause the owner did not promptly
submit to lis extortionate demands.
An anil trust provision was incorporated
In the last tariff law, which was expected
would act as a bar to the further opera
tions of trusts, but in spite of the eloquent
predictions of able Senators and the hopes
ot the public, trusts have rapidly grown
both In influence and-nunibers. The law
has now been in forte for over a year and
not the slightest effort has ever been made
to prosecute a trust. In fact, the impres
sion prevails throughout the country that
the law Is a dead letter so far as the trusts
are concerned, and that no attempt will
be made to execute its provisions by cither
the Attorney General or any of his sub
ordinates. The influence of these lawless combines
In destroying tho prosperity of the public
Is Iclous almost beyond comprehension.
They cat away the substance of commercial
transactions and levy toll on nearly every
article of consumption. Take as an ex
ample the cargo of sugar Just appropri
ated by tho sugar trust. It shows that
lugar cannot be brought to this country
except at such prices as arc dictated by
the trust, and it demonstrates that if tbe
trust has the power to dictate terms of
purchase, it can also fix prices Uo con
uincrs, because It absolutely controls both
sides of the markets. This power is con
ferred on Uie trust by the tariff law, and
there seems no means of relief to the public
except the abolition of the tariff on every
article controlled by a trust.
A CALAMITY CBOAKEH.
Ex-Supt. B. P. Porter, relic or tbe Gen
ius Bureau, may experience great pleas
ure In denouncing the "Good Times Cor
ner" -of The Times, as announced in our
news columns to-day, but he will find It,
s difficult to disprove 1U Rood tidings as
be did to convince tbe public of the value
3f his services as a Government of fidal.
It Is really bad form for a man of Mr.
Porter's standing to assume the role of a
calamity prophet, especially after he has
for so long a time bad his hand In the
Good times after so terious a business
depression is of more Importance than
partisan politics, and it is the duty of
-every patriotic citizen to assist in a
pcedy return of prosperity by promoting
a sentiment to that effect. It is easy
to make a person feef poor by constantly
croaking hard times tu him, and it will
be no difficult matter tu retard good
times if such influential politicians as Mr.
Porter start opt on a campaign for that
Every such effort should be discouraged
and a Contrary influence exerted. There
are too many poor people waiting for re
lief to postpone prosperity for politics,
and In their behalf and for tbe general
welfare of all we should open a good
times corner In our memories and preach
and talk It to everybody.
NOT HIGH TREASON.
The owner of the yacht Alfred E. Cox
has made a narrow escape. It seems that
he has actually had the temerity to fly a
flag at the masthead of his little vessel
which is the exact counterpart of one which
has been for some years known as the
"President's flag," and "which, It is (aid,
was designed by tbe Navy Department In
Somebody complained of thcincult offered
to the President of the yacht in thus daring
to use a .flag bearing an eagle perched upon
a shield on a blue background. The mat
ter was referred to the law authorities of
tbe Treasury Department, and Solicitor
Reeve has decided that there is no legal
reason why the Alfred E Cox or any other
yacht may not use nnv kind of flag desired.
The owner of the yacht Ib to tc ttu'gratu-
lated. In thece days of growirg exclu
siveness and imitation of transatlantic
snobbery his chances w ere good for being
declared a serious offender. Even while
the Solicitor admits that the yacht owner
could not be prosecuted legally, be sug
gested that it would lie "courteous" In
him to drop a dcrlgn, which he sttrrtshe
has used for twenty four years, and adopt
Some other flag. It is evident, therefore,
that the atmosphere of-ti.obbery has In
some degree penetrated the Treasury De
partment, nnd a way may jet be devifed
to punish such temerity as that exhibited
by the. master of the Cox.
It would be interesting to know who
made the complaint against the yachtsman.
The President's flag nnd that of the yacht
have been fioatirg side by side for a dozen
years and no one has before complained.

The chances are that Dunravcn will not
sulk for very long. He will probably try
the Valkjrie again or build a new yacht
for a new contest. If be does not some
other Scotchman or Englishman will, but
whoever does will evidently have new
genius to contend with, and not alone tbe
ingenuity of the Ilerreslioffs.
CHINESE AND CHOLERA.
As published In The Tines to day, cholera
has broken out in virulent form in Honolulu,
and the theory was that it wasbrought there
by Chinese Immigrants In the steamer Bel
gic. The Belgic arrived at San Francisco
several days ago, was reported stranded
nnd yesterday again reported to huve been
floated. Just what was discovered at quar
antine at San Francisco, or just what tba
Bclgic's officers concealed, is not known,
hut there appears to be no corroboration of
lbe first theory.
This Incident, however, furnishes a new
and yet an old argument for barring the
Chinese from America. Asiatic cholera,.
thomnst dreaded of all plagues, has its home
among these people. Lack of sanitary ma
chinery in their densely crowded towns and
cities, personal uncleanliness of tbe most
aggravated kind, Induce diseases ot tbe
most virulent character. Contagion con
stantly stalks abroad among these people,
and it is marvelous that It is not more fre
quently introduced by tbcm into other coun
tries. No matter whether the original theory
in regard to the source of the Honolulu
cases be true or not, tbe -very fact that
there seemed to be a foundation for it is
sufficient to add strength to the ant I Chi
Consul Mason, of Frankfurt-on the-Maln,
rives the curious Information that dealers
in American meats arc compelled to post
conspicuously a placard stating that such
meats have passed but a superficial and
insufficient liisr-i-ction, and that their
parity cannot therefore be guaranteed.
The method taken by several European
countries to Injure-the sale ot American
beef, mutton, and pork have been various
in their endeavors to avoid-formal diplo
matic discussion, but this is certainly one
ot the most curious yet reported. Whether
the posting is due to an order from the
local or national authorities, the consul
does not state, but It Is certainly not
done bythe dealers of their own volition.
Farmers of all kinds, and producers of
lnimals for slaughter, on the other side of
the ocean, harbor a constantly growing
Jealousy against the Introduction ot Ameri
can products of all kinds. Every means is
taken to prejudice consumers against any
thing of food kind that Is American, nnd
conscience never stands in the way of the.
boldest and most Ingenious lies.
The one thing American that is not
objected to abroad Is the American globe
trotter. He Is always welcome because he
always comes with plethoric purse. It
Is known that more-Americans have visited
Europe this Tear than In any preceding
year, and Jt. Is estimated that tbe amount
of American money left In Europe tlds
year is a round $100,000,000. It is picas-,.
, Ing.therefore, ioksowtnal'if the American
ox, the American sheep, and the American
hog are embargoed, the American man and
woman are received with open arms IX
they come with money to spend.
It Is evident that Aslatlo cholera Is
raging upon the Hawaiian Inlands, no
matter whether ft was introduced from
China or whether it was generated from
local conditions. There is, however, no
necessity for alarm In the United Slates.
The possibilities for easy and perfect
quarantine could not be better. The disease
is confined to a small and isolated area.
No vessels ply between the Infected ports
and ports of the United Slatescxceptlngon
the Pacific coast, and there they enter but
three or four harbors, San Francisco having
the great bulk of" the Intercourse.
If the cholera, therefore, be permitted
to gain a foothold upon American soil It
will be through the grossest negligence
of the sanitary authorities, national and
local. It Is but a few years since 'there
was a great scare in the Atlantic States
on account ot the infection with cholera
of every European seaport. Hamburg, a
great shipping point. for America, was
ravaged by the disease. Every Atlantic
and Gulf port had to be quarantined against
vessels from every part of the world. ilany
steamers arrived which bad cases of
cholera aboard. The work of prevention
iras colossal, yet only a few cases of the
disease, and those generally mild ones, oc
curred on shore, the barriers Interposed
against Infection were so perfect.
II the sanitary machinery of this govern
ment could be made so effective in that
Instance, It will nssuredly be much easier
to quarantine the Taclf Ic coast so that not a
single case of cholera shall appear on.

Thereis anapparently ttellauthentlcated

According to tbe major, he was present
ed some years ago with a quart bottle of
the best Kentucky whisky by Gen. Hardin,
ot that State. It will be recalled that Har
din is the Democratic candidate for gov
ernor this year. Gen. Hardin has become
politically notorious because ot tbe posi
tion he has taken before nnd since he ac
cepted his nomination. He heads the Dem
ocratic State ticket in Kentucky, but docs
not profess, and will not accept, the plat
form ndoptedat its convention. The cur
rency plank in-lthis platform does not suit
him. It is for this reason that he and the
Democratic platform and a good many
Democrats in Kentucky are widenpart.
Gen. Hardin's' candidacy, however, has
very little to do with the bottle of whisky
that he presented to Maj. Baldwin. The
ex-Duluth Congressman is a little cautious
in explaining Just why it was that he ac
cepted tbis present from Gen. Hardin, and
Just why he made the pledge that he did.
The great increase In the population of
Duluth within the past five years Is a ve-ry
satisfactory thing to Maj. Baldwin. He

STAILET'S SHAKE CAREER
How le las hie Fran Wrtkise 1
Characteristics of tho Man Who Has
Won Fame In Many Fields and
a Name Everywhere.
Henry M. Stanley has at last won a teat
in tbe English House of Commons. In ail
tbe Parliament their will be no man with
a career so picturesque and so checkered.
In all the world to-day there is not Stan
ley's counterpart as an adventurer.. Born
In Wales, brought up In a wwkhouse, emi
grating to America while In his teens, a
cabin boy on tbe Uicsisslppl, a pnvate In
the Confederate army, an ensign in the
rederal navy, a reporter in Omaha, the
finder of Livingstone, the rescuer of Emin
Pasha, a bride-groom In Westminster
Abbey, honored by the greatest of Great
Britain's institutions, mobbed in tbe city
whose "freedom" had been impressively
presented to bini, he fiLally lands in the
House of Commons, with a greater range of
experiences than ever fell lo the lot of
any other man of the age.
Before being permitted to stand as a can
didate, he had to become a naturalized f ub
ject of the Queen, Tor it was held that he
had lost his citizenship in his native country
by terving in tbe American civil war. As
be served on both sides In the -war betn cen
the States, It is col certain whether It was
as a Confederate or a Federal be became
tor a time an American. .
Stanley's election to Parliament is the
realization of his ambition of the period of
cakes and ale. He represents North Lam
beth. A clever writc-r says that he has had
his eye on Parliament ever since bis
marriage with Mini Dorothy Tennant. That
carried him into the most powerful "set"
In England tbe brilliant, cynical, but
most practical group, of which Balfour
is the exemplar.
His slslcr-iu-law, the heroine of the
"Dodo" book, ! the wlfeotHerbrtAsquitb,
the retiring Liberal home- secretary; Ihe
Term ant family Is rep resented among victors
as we'l as among vanquished. For, of
course, Stanley is a Conservative.
That Is one advantage oT consistent Amer
ican training, that it iu-iires the true
partiot with a most profound respect for
tbe old" families ot England. We have
contributed ere this to the Conservative
side of the" House of Commons. Louis Jen
nings, after a long career as editor of the
New York Times, drifted to England and
"suffered the inevitable change. The most
determined, furious, talkative Torj more
Tory than the Howards or theragets In the
House of Commons is that product of
Brooklyn civilization. Sir Ellis Ashmead
Bartlelt, brother of the young man whixn
Lady Burdett-Coutts took to her venerable
bosom not, however, after tbe generous
manner of lbe lady in Gil Bias.
His voice Sir Ellis' Brooklyn voice is
for colonial aggression, for the extension of
the imiierial government, for war with Rus
sia at Cabjl, with France on the Congo, with
anybody anywhere who disputes or intends
lo dLspatc the sentiment that a Brltonnever,
never, net or Is n slave. James O'Kelly is the
exception in tbe rosterof expatriatedAmcr
ieans in English politics. O'Kelly. like
Stanley, was newspaper writer, explorer,
daredevil adventurer in Africa. He is not
a Tory. But then be lias to &(end a part of
the j car in Ireland.
Stanley goes in as a Tory of the Tories to
uphold those traditions which Englishmen
(who pront by them) hold dear. He was
beaten at North Lambeth In 1892; beaten
badly, too, with ballots and eggs. But his
mind was made up that he should sitin Par
liament. His eye was fixed on Westminster,
and II Is not an eye to be denied light
gray, bold, fierce, piercing. Stanley
would have made a gcd baseball player If
he could agree with tbe umpire. The cause
lWi principles of fair play still survive.
They manifested themselves In the treatment
of the Cornell crew at Henley. Stanley's
publications against Maj. Barttclnt and his
while companions on the excursion Into
"Darkest Africa" excited a storm of hatred
for the adventurer among the peopleof Eng
land. What it a cannibal feast had been or
dered as a contribution to tbe photograph
album of an English country house? What
if lust and murder, pillage and rapine at
tended the course of this pioneer of Eng
lish civilization? De mortuis Anglorum
nil nisi bonum, and Stanley was put in
tbe pillory, not for his own sins though
he had enough of the-ra but for the sins of
But It must be admitted that his un
popularity is not restricted by geographical
lines. His ene-mles are everywhere. Emin
Pasba, good man, wbu shared none ot
Stanley's lust for glory, but was philan
thropist rather than explorer, hated, dis
trusted and even feared him.
He is not admitted to tbe camp fires ot
the veteran correspondents. Of the Com
pany whom he led on his last expeditioa
into' tie horrors of Africa not over two
were his friends after six months of the
sort of adventure that binds the hearts of
men in wedlock. It may be some dark
quality in tbe man's nature wbicb raises
against him the band of every man with
whom he comes In touch; or it may be
that fierce, overbearing, obstinnte-to-the-point-of-bloodshcd
persistence that shows

.-ic. for whatever cnu'c, Stanley
Is widely disliked. That he has no reason
to be courteous to a world that has given
bun no mure than he has wrung from it,
is apparent. He wa3 a waif, a pauper's
child, bred 1 a poor house. He was chris
tened John Rowlands, bst after coming to
America as a cabin-boy at fifteen, he took
"the name of tbe merchant who adopted him.
When he was barely twenty he enlisted
as a private in tin? Confederate army. He
was a simple ndveiituurereven that early.
He cared nothing under which flag he
fought. His swurd was like Dugald Dal
getty's. When taken prisoner he lie-came
a Union man, and enlisted in the navy.
where he rose to the rnnk of ensign.
Journalism, made feverish by the exploits
of the Bennetts, attracted many ardent souls
just after the war, and Stanley became a
newspaper writer or rather a newspaper

The Deacon would have been saved this em
barrassment had he stayed at home
with a copy of
The Sunday Times:
He would have found his mind engaged in
its Local Features. Absorbing Fiction Fads
and Freaks of Fashion Doings of District Or
ganizationsArtistic Illustrations-and the
whole would have cost him only
world of a picturesque reporter, while add
ing one to the list of historical "path
finders." Stanley became the explorer
of the century. His achievements are as
familiar to the people of the world as
their own folklore.
The iieriod of his activity is closed.
He'is married; he has grown stout; he will
be one of the noble band of the unknown
