St. Louis' street car strikers are

of ''too much strike.*'
How it does worry some men to
see other men live and get along
without their aid!
"Hello girl," how is your hello?
Is Guie an ex-Humer? is the ques
tion of the hour.
If reports be true, Humes' guber
natorial launch is sadly in need of
Wooding up again.

William MeKinley is doing presi
dential business at the same old stand
and the crowds are rushing thither
the same as did they four years ago.
It seems that the Boxers have cen
tered their fire on the "cross," and as
a result 5,000 Catholic Chinamen
have been ruefully slain.
William Jennings Bryan and Adlai
Stevenson are to ride the Democratic
presidential ass to the political bone
yard next November.
Negros island is said to be im
mensely rich in minerals and agri
cultural resources. What country
wouldn't expand under such condi
tions as that?
Minnesota has a practically un
known river some 330 miles long, up
which we suggest that Mr. Bryan
plant his Towne for the propagation
of a new "fusion fungus" for presi
dential purposes four years hence.
That was a close call that 16 to 1
got at Kansas City, and 16 to 1 that
is crippled it so badly that it will be
knocked completely out before an
other four years have rolled around.
Democracy is anxious enough to
get the Populist and Free Silver Re
publican votes, but Democracy did
not propose to give them recognition
on the presidential ticket.
Ex-Senator Corbett's love for the
ladies may now cost him $100,000,
instead of $10,000, as it once cost
him, when a kodak and a revolver in
the hands of a young fellow now do
ing politics in an adjoining state
played a conspicuous part.
The postoffice department has just
returned a letter to a writer who
mailed it thirty-seven years ago in
Missouri to a brother in loAva. When
one reads of such promptness no
wonder a carrier's mail gets marked
"party unknown" in the very office in
which he works.
King county Republican primary
campaign—damndom vs. decentdom.
Humes represents the former and
Frink the latter. Which will you
have for your next chief executive?
Hawaiian planters have sent an
agent South to get Negroes to take
the place of the Japs and offer the
laborers $30 per month. Three years
ago these planters could have gotten
all the colored help they wanted for
$20 per month, but General Prosper
ity put the idle to work in this coun
try, hence this price.
There are now 515 Cuban teachers
at Harvard university to attend a
three-months* summer school being
held for their especial benefit, for the
maintenance of which Harvard uni
versity appropriated $75,000. That's
the May to Americanize foreigners,
when you want to make Americans
out of them.
When the Prohibition national
convention insulted the memory of
Miss Frances Willard, the woman
who has done more for the temper
ance cause than any other one per
son in the world, then it clearly dem
onstrated to all reasonable people
that the Prohibition convention was
made up of political jugglers and
The allied powers will have to
show China what they can do, for the
Chinese Boxers are going right on
killing foreigners as though the guns
of the most powerful nations in the
world were not trained on her forts.
Perhaps this will prove the entering
wedge whereby the European nations
can get action on their long expect
ant war preparations. Russia does
not seem to be very anxious to get in
the muddle, and she may take sides
witli China at the proper time, pro
viding China will make territorial
concessions to her.
The editor of the Seatle Daily
Times, the defamer of Mrs. President
Cleveland, the goulish attacker of
Vice President Hobat*s memory and
the wrecker of banks is now editorial
ly advocating separate cars for black
and white passengers on railroads.
Rather remarkable, too, that he
would at the same time be advocat
ing the colored voters to stand by
Billie Bryan who will prove their
Moses. Bryan will get no electoral
votes, practically speaking, but those
from the South and from the very
men that do all in their power to pre
vent the colored folk from being men
and United States citizens, which is
a splendid inducement for them to
stand by Bryan.
Here are a few facts in connection
with the late Democratic national
convention that will not read well to
persons desiring to see Bryan and
Stevenson elected at the next general
election: In the Democratic conven
tion of 1896 the states of Connecti
cut. Delaware, Maine, Maryland,
Massachusetts, Minnesota, New
Hampshire. New Jersey, New York,
Pennsylvania. Rhode Island, South
Dakota, Vermont, Wisconsin and
Wyoming voted against the silver
plank of the platform. All of these
states, except South Dakota and
Wyoming, gave their electoral votes

gia, Illinois, Indiana, Louisiana,
Maryland, Minnesota, South Dakota,
Virginia, Michigan, New York,

tee against a declaration in favor of

Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado,
Delaware, Idaho, Maine, Massachu

In the committee there were twen
ty-six votes in favor of the silver res
olution and twenty-four against, but
five of the affirmative votes were cast
by territories which have no vote for
president. The twenty-four votes
against the silver resolution came
from twenty-three states, represent
ing 120 more electoral votes than the
states voting for the resolution. Mr.
Bryan forced the Kansas City con
vention to adopt a resolution opposed
by states representing two-thirds of
the electoral votes that will be cast
In case you are indebted to this
paper it would greatly appreciate it
if you would send the amount to this
office at once. It may not be but two
dollars, but that amount counts up
when put in with a few hundred
others likewise from delinquents.

this city this week, reports one of the
most enthusiastic as well as profitable
meetings that the association has
ever witnessed in this state. Will H.
Thompson's address on "Our Coun
try's Expansion" was a very note
worthy effort on the part of Mr.
Thompson and one that no one save
himself thought he could make.
