by foreign capitalists, which is a
tribute to the wealth of ths country,
and will bs most gratifying is ths im
pression oblains that most of the
national dobt was doe capitalist

was bo much circulation takon from
the United 8 a'.es and thereby injuri
ous to all the 8' eat busineis interests
of the country. At ths end of the last

his torm we may expect it to
bave shrunk to the, billion
line again, and, fjllowing past
examples, the Democratic party may
confidently go before the country and
be indorsed on the leorJ of a reduced
debt. To this end vise politicians in
the Democratic party will bend the
energes of the o ganization. It is
within reach of possibilities tbat a
second term for President Cleveland
will nearly wipe out the national
debt, and the enormous resources
taxed out of the toil of the people wl 1
bs turned into other channels, to the
great benefit of the count ry. There is
always a me allurement to lush ex
penditure of public money. Feople
of a city want public buildings and
other improvements, and tbeie is a
sreat temptation to Congressmen
to secure local strength by pool
ing tbeir strength for such appro
priations. But let us ,geH,i(fhls

"lei us" be just to the govern
ment creditor and the taxpayer before
we go wild for a policy of generosity
toward localities. There is fair and
pioper party advantage in what favor
would follow extinction, practically, of
the debt in eight years of Democratic
rule. It would be remembered for
generations to come, and the party
would get from it a strength which
would be hard to ovoioome. To se
cuie an end bo deiirable the Federal
expenses must be kpt at the lowest
figure consistent with proper adminis
tration. Useless ofllcfs uau t be lopped
off and useless salaries curtailed. The
people will gladly bsar even the pres
ent rati of taxation in the belief tbat
' ' its purpose is to present our Treasury
as the only great exchequer in the
world that is free from debt.
"US 4N8KI.1 AN ARAPPIN AT
The Charleston rewspaper corre
sp3ndenti toll us that the frightened
colored people sung themselves to
sleep ob the hymn which begins with
' ths above words on the n'ghtof the
earthquake. It is said that their
melody was wondrous. Intelligent
men, familiar with the history of
earthquakes and knowing that the
worst was over, endeavored to ooraole
the wild, bawildered and panic stricken
race, but they would not be comforted
All seomed prepared and anxious to
go. The negro race is a mystery even
to the whites who bave been raise 1
with them. It seems that neither time
nir experience can eradicate tbeir
credulity and superstition. But few
feel themselves site without tome sort
of taliBinanio protection. They believe
in all sorts of conjuration, and are
mlHBtable at ths Itsi of their bag of
charm?. Superstition is eo doeply en
g-Aved in every fiber and ligament of
their natures that they only regard
the corjurer as aa Impostor when
he orpines his own tricks. They are
amiable, g;nerons aud kind hearled
but superstition is a curse t) the race,
Tney have little or no thrift, and the
proverbial niny day never ditturbs
them. They live in a country where
the lands are productive and can miko
a comfortable livirg. but tbey skim
along and enj y lifa as they find it
They care litlie or nothing for reputa
tion, and generally one who has been
in the.peniten'iary is not oe.trn.ieed
They have no avarice and seldom con
iplre to swindle; but wi b them eo
Agreement is i inding, no contract sa
;ie&, longer than egreeab'e or conve

'he earthquake is in keeping with the
race. Their religion is usually entirely
emotional or rpismcdic They are
pious to excess at times, praying nigh
and day, then they go to the other ex
Irfine. Their ministers are popular in
proportion to their power to induce in
tbeir congr?ga'ioo a condition of tsc'a
sy rather than fcr.the excellence of
their precrp's end the u?r!ghti o s cf
their example. Ia sll their meetings
they aing uprot ricus'y, keeping time
ith thtir feet, and the singing grows
lruder and wilder, until the
whole congregat'on seeins to be as
crazy as the lunatics in an asylum.
Fiety is judged by the noise, and tto e
wlo yell the londest are the moet re
l'g'one, and tfcow who get B'rnik, fall
down B9Dsle'B, breathless, B'iff and
rigid, are regarded as lasct Aid. Long
after midnight the shout and the
music swells, tbe bodies wave together
and the billowy roar is like ur.t the
sea. Thesermots.'re a fervid dercrip
tion of heaven and hell, the re.urrec
tion and judgment. Tbe tumult is
generallv wild and often tbe tinging

with the rapidity of ths white, but it
seems Impossible for the race 1o di
vert tbeir minds of superstition and
religious fanaticism, the former a
curse to tbe race and tbe la ter a
naock-rv of relLicn. Ut dor whatever
condition tbe negto Is found bis re
ligious instincts are sura t) be string.
It is a crude religion for the most part,
it is true t strange blending of what
's cure and el-. vating-with a mars of
error and nupes'Itim; a ie'fg;oa r
taking of a highly eunt'onal character
A quiet, orderly, undemors'.rative re
ligion would n,t suit them. Hi
wants a noi y, shoutinr, toul stirring
kind- one that affords au opportunity
for tbe display of animal eo
thutlaem. And tbe ideal preach r
is the showy, demonitritive, sew
tlocal character, with pew. rful lungs
and maniacal gesticulation? ths man
who cm yell "hell-fire" with such ve-
hemenca as to a'arm tbe night watch
and call out the fire engine; one who

square into the "glory land." A
straightforward, p a n spoken man
who deals out words of c.mmon tense
and honest advice is far less popular
than he who appeals to Ignorant pre
jndices, plays upon tbe emotions and
gives countenance to foolish iries.

The buiiness in hand is the election
of James Fhelan to Congress. No
firebrands should be thrown Into the

will attempt to disturb the harmony
of the party by extraoenus or factious
Issues. Mr. Fhelan baa baen indorsed

Tenth Congressional District lay aside

hearty good will and entire barmony

victory awaits us. It will take

to elect Mr. Fhelan. "Whatever differ

For tbe lis', three years ths dreaded
cholera haa been epidemic la Borne
part of Europe. Spain, France and
Daly bave suffered from theicourge.
A Loodcn telegram of Tbnreday
shows it to be priS3nt also in Vienna,
Feath and Trieste. With to many
centers of epidemic, how Is it that tbe
d'sease does not spread, as it d d in
time to sorrowfully rembered by
many of our older read-ra? This is
an interesting question. Is tbe cause
decreased vigor on the part of the die
ease? If each a disease can fade and
become comparatively Inactive from its
own loss of power to psrpetuate itself,
be phenomenon is a most interesting
fact for medical study. Have hotter
Bsnltary hablla among tbe people

change? The condition of the cities
of Toulon and Marseilles and other
places visited by cholera hardly besr
out tbat theory. Is the progress of
medical knowledge and skill the
savior from tbe old, wholesale cholera
slaughter? In a gene al way it has
something to do with it, but it is no
ticeable that we do not bear of the

there a possibility tbat after these lira

eiderntion, at leaet to tbe extent tbnt
everywhere unremitting care in sanl

that ihoull be watched diligently,

Washington, September 17. Ths
War Deprtment is still uncertain how
to deal with Geronimo, tbe Apohe
chief, snd his followers. Several tele
grams bave been sent to Geo. Miles
for all particulars relaticg to the sur
render. It has been suggested by some
of tbe military officials here, that G n.
Miles egreedto a cocditional cur: ender
before Geronimo gav himself up;
that the main cocdit on was that all
the re voltng Ind;acs should be Bpared
their lives, and that tbe civil courts
should bave co'hing to do with
any tria' they might be subjected to.
Gen. Miles hai not been heard from
on tbis poiDt. The authorities here
are of opinion, however, th.t the last
dispatch sent bim will be replied to
immediately. Thedbjiatch demands
at ones a cony of all conditions of the
surrender, il any were made, and an
r tlicial report of the surrender. Gen.
Mile s was not autbor'zed to make sny
condiiins with Geronimo. It has
alrrady been decided that tbey cannot
be tried by court mart'nl, even if the
surrender was unconditional, and the
Acing Secretary Is not convinced that
a military romm'ssion can take the
puniehmett of the Indians in hand.

AKTHUK MEBTOVS MAMA.

Ch'cagi (III ) dispatch to the Gkbt
Democrat: About fifty people, mostly
ibtelligent, refined women, believe
tbat a inau who lives on Uolman ave
nue, in tbe w st division of the city,
is the true . Messiah cine to save tbe
world again and intrcduce a new or
der of living. Tbe Messiah's r ame
amorg people who do not be leva in

Meiton. He is a' tall,' fine looking
man of middle tge, well educated and
deeply read. He prefixes the title
"Doctor" ti his name, Buying that he
Ii a g'aduata if a medital colleg-t. He
also c'a ms tbnt he baa b;eo a tutor in
Harvard College. Oi Mer.ou's pre
vious history little is known, ex
cert tbat for at leest tea vears he haa
bd bilievera in hii.Me'sah-
8hip. About four years igo be ap
peared in Unlcago and at once oevan
promulgating tbe doctrines oi the
Messianism. This Is an old faith snd
the only difference between Merton'a
Meseiaiiem snd the Meesianism of
other men who have preached it be
fore is in the Meesiau. He had con
siderable buccbfs betauee be was
plainly in earneet, end evidently a
man cf no small learning. Many well
known Chicagrans her ame his disci
ples, but g adually withdrew from tbe
fold and left his worship entirely to
the women, who have stuck to him
through thick and thin since. The
Loose wbere Merton lives is a two
story, shabby loak ng brick structure.
Some ef the theo'ies on whicbthe te
nsion is based are U be found in The
Book (f Life, which Merton has pub
lished, and which is made np cf about
equal parts of physiology and philoso
puy. They aprear to be as utterly
harmless as they . are mild and
faocitul. They put forward tbe
idea that there is a plan of
government in heaven, and that
Merton has discovered tbis and cop
ied the system for application nn tbe
earth when tbe New Jerusalem ia
built here.'- There will be spiritual
officers male and female to govern
tbe cammuiiity, ust ss heaven is gov
erned, ihey say, by Moresss, the
Father, snd Marinand, the Mother.
Tbe human brain is. laid out into
quarters, like New Jerusalem will be.
