The Democratic party lost a valu
able member and the world an all
around good fellow, in the best sense
of the word, when Congressman Amos
J. Cummings of New York died.
Like so many other good fellows,
Amos was a printer and newspaper
It is both cowardly aud inhumau
to plead as an excuse for brutality to
ward the Filipinos their brutal treat
ment of American prisoners. The
world expects barbarity from Bavagc
and semi-savage peyple, butit neither
expects nor excuses it in those as
highly civilized as Americans.
Thc city of St. Tierre, Island of
Martinquc, West ludies, was com
pletely wiped out of existence last
Saturday by the sudden eruption of a
volcano. 30,000 people were killed and
50,000 arc homeless aud huugry. lt
is one of the greatest disasters in the
world's history. Congress has appro
priated $2U0,000 for ibo relief of the
Crumpacker, of Indiana, maj not be
a prophet but he is without honor in
his country on his specialty at least.
The State convention of Republicans
in Indiana recently considered the
Crumpacker scheme of investigating
suffrage conditions in the South and
by a large majority voted against the
proposition. This would probably
kill the thing in Congress if it were
not already quite dead.
There is bing in the way
of household supplies which has not
been made dearer by the protection
afforded monopolies and legislation in
favor of classes. The times are sup
posed to be good, but thc man who
keeps a family on $1,000 a year linds
that it will go no farther than ;?800
would a year ago, and its purchasing
capacity is steadily decreasing. The
trusts and the tariff are responsible
There was a few weeks ago a con
sioerable flurry in the South over tho
Crumpacker resolution to examine
into the election laws of the Southern
States with a view to the reductiou of
the congressional representation of
those States that have imposed suf
frage qualifications that will result in
disfranchising *i large part of the
negro vote. We never had any idea
that this resolution would be passed,
and it is now generally regarded as a
A Pennsylvanian tells of a practi

of tin- societies is t" briug a'nout a

of good will come <>i' this movement,
and hopi; to see it spread to other
parts of the I nion. The fact is '.'nat
a large per cent of men usc profane
speech to an extent that they scarcely
realize. A gentleman ought not to
mar his talk with coarse and meaning
less expletives, and I believe tho day
is coming when frequent oaths will
not be tolerated in decent societies.

Republican papers all over the
country have been advising the people
to curtail their consumption of food
as a method of fighting the trusts, but
what Republican paper has urged thc
Republican Congress to remove the
tariff on trust products? What He
publican paper has urged the admin
istration to enforee the Federal anti
trust law in every district throughout
the United States wherever that law
was being violated? The Republican
purty, which created and fostered
these monopolistic organizations at
the sacrifice of thc people's rights, is
owned body and soul by thc combines
which it bas created. No honest or
effective anti-trust actiou is to be ex
pected from Republicanism. The
Democratic party must make thc light
in the people's behalf. If the evil
working of the trust system is to be
remedied the remedy must come from
The Repudiation of Tillman.
Kdilor Intelligencer : Will you kindly
publish the enclosed clipping which ap
peared in the New York World, under J
the above eaptiou, on tho sth lost , and
permit my own viewH to follow:
Tho Democratic Senators who walked
out of the Senate ('bamber In a body
yeaterday wben Tillman, of South Caro
lina, began to pitchfork the Kngllsh
language in a characteristic whoop ou the
race issue, and remained out of .'t until
he had finished, when they walked back
lu a body, did their party * ftefvlce.
They made lt clear that Till m rm tn ni ia
not Democracy. Kven the Hui'.th Caro
lina Senator, thick skinned as he has
HIID wn himself to be, munt have felt the
point of thia sharp rebuke.
This has heeu the opinion of quito a
number of people in this mate, and
while hit? followers bnve been slow In
finding lt out, they are opening their
eyea to tue truism "that all the people
cannot bo fooled all tho time."
If fooling alono the pcoplo wan tho only
charge to be made against such a politi
cian, the more enlightened voter would
not lind fault with him, but the State,
the great State of South Carolina, is be
ing rebuked when her Senior Senator
i-, snubbed like no other man has ever
boen snubbed in tho Senate chamber,
and all on account of having 1 represen
tative who misrepresents us.
To call him a I'omocratle would bean
Insult to tho fathers of Democracy who
struggled for life, liberty and the pursuit
If populism is distasteful lo some of his
worehlppers, how would the term pessi
mism suit? A pessimist is his own
worst enemy. He refuses to walk in the
light, but willingly shuts his eyes to the
progress of civilization and to the beau
ties of thc universe, closes his ears to tho
joyous sounds of life and to tho music of
nature and turns away from everything
that would prove tn an unbiased mind
the falsity of his creed. Though fortune
has showered her gifts upon him, though
he may possess every advantage that
wealth and education can give, though he
be young, healthy and vigorous, the pes
simist looks only for shadows. Is it any
wouder that the Democratic party J aa
butlered defeat twice when led by such
men as Jones and Td 1 man.
Is lt not high lime to ?top lighting
ghosts and shadows and elect men who
will bean honor aud not a disgrace to
the Statt ?
T?e Stale Convention to convene soon
ahould muzzle this autocrat or dictator,
rather than force new Iron (dad oaths
opon good men who are to be candidates
for otllce, and who would be ruled out If
tho "dictator" did not approve of him or
them, or, more plainly, if their passport
was not properly countersigned.
If the Democratic party can realize that
to win two years hence tn the national
election we must bo organized on real
issues and not on mere sundown, it will
cut IOOHB from populism, vulgarism and
Ti I lu?ante na.
The delegates to the Convention can
pave the way if they wish to seethe party
united in pure Democracy.
They Should be Cared Tor.
Editor of the Intelligencer : The Pen
sion laws can be improved on in many
particulars, but there is certainly a
class left out who should be cared for.
They are the veterans who have lost
nn arm or leg in bnttle, and have an
income just above the present limits,
whieh excludes them. These men and
their families are HU Hering this loss
every day of their lives, and should bo
compensated tor this loss. There are
not many of them, ned the amount
will not be much to tho tnxpnyers but
a great deal to them. Some of them
have property just above the limit, but
under mortgage, which should be taken
into consideration. These brave, mod
est men have never asked for this aid,
but it is no reason why it should not he
nccorded them. It would bc a good
subject tor campaign discussion during
the canvass this your.
