'Washington, 1). C, Jan. .*>, ltKW. |
"Is Mr, Roosevelt and his adtninis- !
tratiou really iu favor of the Nicaragua
Canal!" That question is beiug naked ' >
more frequently every day, ami not!
without reason, either. It is unite cer
tain that elements are at work against
Congressional legislation lor the Nica
ragua Canal, and the administration
is accused of encouraging, it' not di
rectly assisting them. There may be
some sensational developments in this
connect ion "soon after Congress reas
sembles. Public opinion, regardless of
politics, has shown itself to bo'-soi
strongly in favor of the Nicaragua ;
Canal that no man in public life dares
to openly oppose it, but there aro more
ways to kill a dog than hanging, and ]
the talk about going slow and being
sure that our best interests will bo :
served by constructing the canal over
the Nicaragua route is increasing in j
i Washington, ami some of it is coming
j from unexpected quarters. This is
simply a revival of the policy which,
has been used for years to prevent
legislation for the canal without going 1
on record against it. The new oiler of
the Panama Canal Company to sell at
a little more than one-third of the
price named by its president several
mouths ago is merely a part of the
game of delay. Secretary Hay is said
to favor the purchase of the Pnurimu
Canal, but ho has not done so openly.
Every man who advocates delay in
Nicaragua Canal legislation may not
be in the pay of tho Panama Canal
lobby, but every man who does so will
plnco himself under suspicion. The
House will take up the Nicaragua Canal
bill next week, and there is no doubt
that it will pass it without a division
on political lines; it is on tho Senators
that tho obstructionnls aro working,
but Senator Morgan, who will be in
charge of tho matter in tho Senate, is
a hard man to fool, and n man who will
not hesitate to show up any crooked
ness that may bo resorted to in any
effort to indirectly kill the legislation
by delay.
After devoting a week to his personal
affairs, mostly to laying the foundation
for a RooBovelt machine, Mr. Roose
velt has resumed his plnco behind the
oilicial pie-countcr. About as hungry
a lot of pie-hunters, mostly Republican
Senators and Representatives, con
fronts him as ever besieged a Presi
dent, and if ho is at all wise ho will
distribute the pie slowly. Tho more
pie he keeps on hand the fewer anti
Roosevelt Senators and Representa
tives there will be, as they do not wish
to appear openly against the chief pie
distributor until they have got every
body they can possibly get.
There is much gossip concerning the
manner in which Gen. Miles and Ad
miral Dewey paid their "respects" to
the President at his New Year recep
tion. It was a dumb farce, so fa? as
those two officers were concerned, as
both of them passed Mr. Roosevelt
with a stiff and formal bow, without
touching his hand or speaking a word.
They regarded it their duty to head
the army and navy officers respectively
at the reception, but they evidently
did not regard it their duty to pretend
a cordiality they did not feel. Neither
is a man who has been in the habit of
meekly receiving snubs, even from
Presidents.
The New York corporation, known
as the International Banking Corpora
tion, won out in the somewhat spirited
competition in which the other com
petitors were English banks, for the
position of United States fiscal agent
in the Orient, and will at its Shanghai
branch handle all the indemnity money
that China will pay this government,
receiving thereon a commission that
will go far toward making the new
concern profitable from tho start. Re
sides, it has received promises of large
government business at itB Manila
branch. Banking in the east is doubt
less very profitable, but it will be no
ticed that these gentlemen did not
jump into tho game until they made
connection with United StateB govern
ment. YhoBo interested admit that
they are figuring on making big money
out of tho government, but Bay they
might as well got it as tho foreign
bankers who do business in Chin.
It has been suggested to Mr. Roose
velt that if the United Statesis to have
a special representative at the corona
tion of King Edward, in addition to
our ambassador, Hon. Grover Cleve
land, who was twice elected President
and who is the only living ex-Presi
dent, would be the proper man to send,
but those who know Mr. Cleveland
best express doubts as to whother he
would accept the appointment, even if
Mr. Roosevelt should tender it to him.
,' Ex-Gov. Bradley, of Ky., aspires to
tho position of Republican boss of his
Btate. He is new ?n Washington urg
ing the appointment of Daniel Collier
to be collector of the port of Louisville,
to succeed S. M. Barrett, and laying
the wires to sccuroa place in the Re
publican National Committee for him
self.
Rear Admirai Schley is only human.
That is why he did not participate in
the White House New Year reception.
Mr. Roosevelt's treatment of him has
not been calculated to cause him to
desire to play the hypocrite by calling
to say his respects. Therefore, he
made it convenient to remember that
he Owed his sister, in Baltimore, a
visit. Ho is now hock in Washington,
but next week heff.il go to Savannah,
Gn., whero he and Mrs. Schley will bo
-the guests of Gen. William W. Gordon
for ten days.
Dowie Likened to a Devil-Fish.
Many of our readers arc acquainted
with Rev. \Y. R. Royal, who was in |'
this city a year or more ago, os a re- '
turned missionary from China de- c
livered interesting lectures in several t
churches' Mr. Royal was formerly a t
Baptist minister at Rcidsvillc, N. C, c
and went from there to labor as amis- s
sionnry in China, where he married x
Miss Mary Sullivan, who went from t
Anderson as a missionary, and who M
is extensively conueoted with protni- '
ncut families in this county. After''
staying in this section for several
months, Mr. Royal and his wife went
to Chicago, where he became u disci- i
pic of tho notorious Dr. John Alex- 1
ander Dowie, and was made an elder '
in tho Dowie church organization. A
week ago Mr. Royal attended the
Chicago Baptist miuisters' conference,
and made tho declaration that he
wished to retrace his steps and re
sume his ministerial connection with
the Baptist denomination, lie was
quite emphatic in asserting his sever
ance from the Dowie organization,
and said: "I'm siek and tired of Dowie
and his teachings, and I hereby re
; nouncc him and his church forever,"
which was applauded by the members
of tho minister's conference.
A suit against Dr. Dowie had just
closed, in which a receiver was asked
j to take charge of the Zion lace indus
j try established by Dowie, and his at
I torueys had to show that, while ho
was not infallible, he was a great
organizer like J. Pierpont Morgan,
and one of them said lie would prefer !
, howio at his bedside, if he were at
; the point of death, rather than any
skilled physician. On the other hand,
1 the attorney for the plaintiff likened
Dowie to "a devil.fish that twined its
arms . sont its victim and quieted
, him until it got a stronger hold with
j which the victim was strangled."
j The revelations in this trial doubt
j less led to the courfo pursued by Mr.
j Royal, who became convinced that he
was being duped by an imposter and
charlatan, and one of the stupendous
humbugs of this remarkable age.
Dr. John Alexander Dowio waB at
homo among the religious cranks in
Chicago. lie had a strong personal
following and exeroised a hypnotio in
fluence over them, '/ion home, an
imposing structure of seven Btorics, is
the headquarters in Chicago, adjoin
ing the handsome tcrminnl station of
%ho Illinois Central on Michigan ave
nue, tho stateliest and most aristo
cratie thoughfaro in tho city. Dr.
Dowie lives in the two upper stories
of the building, while tho ground
floor is devoted to the banking busi
ness. Zion Tabernaole, whioh seats
three thousand poople, is further
down the avenue, where instruction
is given in divine healing. The favor
ite distinction is that diseases belong
to the dev'\ while healing is God's
property.
Zion City is forty miles from Chi
cago, where Dt. Dowie was projecting
a model community after his own fash
ion, and among other things he had
established the industry of lace-mvk
iog, which he imported from Notting
ham, England. Dr. Dowie is a shor1.
man, broad-shouldered and portly. He
is a native of Edinburgh, and was
brought up a Congregationalist, in
which churoh ho was a minister for
nearly twenty years until his viows on
healing the sick made it impossible
for him to remain with them. He
olaims to be the prophet Elijah, is
intensely argumentative, delights in
saroasm and in inveighing against
sin and sinners, and prides himself on
his outspoke: fearlessness. Like all
Eretenders he makes a bold front, and
y this means draws men and women
into his net, whioh serves'his purpose
until an exposure of his real conduct
is made visible to the public, and the
collapse follows.?Greenville Moun

Only a rev/ days ago we were looking
forward to the comforts and pleasures
that ChrUtmss would bring, and I be
lieve I speak the voice of this community
when I say, "It brought muoh pleasure
and happiness to all." Bat as Christ
mas, with all Its merriments, has passed
and s now year has dawned upon us, the
question naturally arises as to ?hat we
will do to pass the time. Bat the ques
tion is not hard for the school boy to Bet
tie when he hears the sturdy command
ol the father: "Get yonr books and off to
school." The question is yet easier set
tled with the industrious farmer, who,
when New Year morning comes, you
will find bustling about before daybreak,
ringing the farm bell or giving the war
whoop. The lads and lassies look out a
little farther to the time when the flow
ers appear, the time when o very thing
seems to be in harmony, and even the
birds and ilowersjoin in singing nature's
charms. Then yon may hear lad BUggest
to lassie that "we gather wild flowers,"
and about this time "a young man's fan
cies lightly turns to thoughts of love."
Our Heavenly Father has arranged in
nature things for our pleasure and hap
piness in every month during the year,
if wo will only look for them.
