"YotT need not be surprised if Secre

The gentleman in question Las long been
prominent in Ohio politics, and for a num
ber of years has been closely Identified
with the Foiakor faction He has been in
a position that enabled him to obtain
much inside Infoi ination, and being acloe
observer has availed himself of the op
portunity In explaining his prognostication con
cerning Secretary Sherman i.e. said that
the resignation which Mr Sherman would
tender would be the closing act of a deal
that was entered into about October, I,
leoc, when the campaign wan being hotly
conducted Up to thistime Mark A. Hanna
had been constantly spoken or in the press
as Mr McKInles Secretary of the Treis
ui 3 and theseassertious were well founded.
"When Mr Hanna iirst entered into the
contest to secure the nomination of Mr Mc
Kinley he had not the slightest iutentio.n
or accepting a political iosition under him
He went into the fight because of his m:i
cere regard for Mr McKlnley and his de
Eire to serve a friend; but as the aggies
Eive campaign he inaugurated proceeded
Mr Hanna began to realize what a fine
thing political power is, and he gradually
convinced himself that ho should have some
big reward for the friendly services, lie
was performing He knew he had but to
sneak and he could enter the Cabinet.

which he had not 'been able to attain with
the aid of all his millions
By tie time he had concluded to enter
the Cabinet lie discovered that the D.mo
crnts were inaklug much capital out of
the published statements that he was to
be Secretary of the Tieasury He thorough
Iy realized how bitter the feeling against
him was in certain communities, and he
becamealarmed, so alarmed thatdirectious

cule the statement and deny it, and these
orders .vere obeyed

are reached they are not easily altered
He had determined to secure social dis
tinction through the Cabinet, and had
found himself foiced to forego tnis in
tention He revolved th? question about in
his mind, and after viewing it
In all its jilsases, finally concluded that it
would be better to be a Senator from
Ohio than to be a member of the Cabinet.
The etielal possibilities were equal, and the
SenaU-ilal position might lust for an in
definite period. He determined to havt
Senator Sherman's seat, and made known
his ambition to those who could best serve
Senator Sherman was slated for Secre
taryof Prate as soon as the election returns
showed that Mr McKlnley had been elect
ed At the proper time Mr. Sherman was
informed of the honor the President desired
to confer on him, and he was asked to
accept the place in the Cabinet The Sen
ator declined. Then certain arguments
were used to show Mr Sherman that he
was advanced in years; that Ohio was
anxious to have a younger man in the Sen
ate, and that, with a certain opposition, the
Senator could not hope for another term
Be to also persuaded that; his experience
as chairman of the Senate Committee on
Foreign Affairs would be Invaluable to
the Administration in framing a Cuban
policy. Particular stress was put upon
the great aid he could render in this re-"
3pect, and, finally, convinced that he could
be of great service In the Cabinet, Mr. Sher
man consented to be Secretary of State
"What followed is well-known history. .Mr
Sherman entered the Cabinet, Forakerand
Buehneii were placated, and Hanna became
a Senator, but the diplomatic corresjKmd
ence concerning Cuba was never given to
"While this correspondence was purely
routine. Assistant Secretary Rockhlll at
tended to it, but when the time anived
for the Administration to settle upon- a
new and firm policy, Mr. Rockhlll was
remoed aod Judge William R. Day was

for many years been the personal friend
of Mr. McKlnley. To the new Assistant
Secretary of State was transferred all
Cuban diplomatic matters Secretary Sher
man has been, since the induction in office
of Judge Day, kept in almost total Ig
norance of Cuban affairs. Today lie knows
less aliout the Cuban situation than the
average newspaper correspondent, and the
greater portion of the Information he re
ceives comes through the press.
It i6 true that when Cuba is discjissed
at the Cabinet Mr. Sherman Is present,
but it is also true that at no meeting of the
Cabinet has any proposed action been
generally -talked about, and discussion has
been upon events that have transpired
"When Cuban propositions are discussed

Secretary Slieiman feels the position he

' Mr. Sherman has been Informed that the
Administiation has rel-eved him of the Cu

Mountains, on the Tuctos Verdas Itiver.
thirty-five miles southwest of Casa Grande,
In the Slate of Chihuahua, all that icmains
of Francis Schlatter, the "divine healer,"
who a year ago was the subject of much
wonderment throughout the "Western
States, particularly in the Southwest. The
prospectors' attention was attracted to
his camp by their espying a saddle astride
a limb iu a dead tree, high up in a gorge
through which the river runs. His skeleton
was found stretched out on u blanket close
up to the tree.
His body was bleached white. Piled up
alongside the trunk of the tree were&addU,
bags, a large memorandum book, a pack
age of letters bound by a rotten rubber
band, some blankets, and six suits of un
derwear A Bible and a canteen were
alongside the pile, and the canteen was
half fall of water. His saddle ropes and
some extra clothing were directly over
the skeleton on a limb of the tree. In a
knothole in the tree were found needles,
thread, buttons, etc. In the inside cover
of the Bible was inscribed the name,
'Francis Schlatter." There were no signs
of violence, and the prospectors believe
that Schlatter died of self-imposed starva
tion. The jefe politico at Casa Grande was
notified May 30, and on June 2 the skele
ton and effects were brought to that
village, where the authorities hold them,
awaiting a claimant.
Casa Grande is situated .fifteen miles
from the present terminal of theRloGran le.
Sierra Madre and Pacific Itailroad, a new
line, for the past year under construction
from this city to Casa Grande.
Americans at Casa Grande examined the
letters and other facts and pronounced
them undoubtedly those of Schlatter. An
Indian Informed the authorities that some
mouths ago he came upon a gray horse In
the neighborhood where the camp was
found. The horse was hobbled. A Mor
mon cowboy stated that during the m-mth
of Novomber last Schlatter rode up to his
camp, fifty miles west of Casa Grande, on
a gray horse. He was unarmed, and
carried no provisions or cooking utensils.
He refused to eat anything, and said he
was fasting. The cowboy stated that his

dne. An effort is being made to -e-cure
an increase on Sumatra leaf tobaco,
and as the new schedule has not yet hwn
agreed upon, it is tacitly understood shac
when tobacco Is reached the schedule Is
to he passed temporarily.
Thus, it will be seen, the Senate wilt
soon reach the agricultural schedule, upon
which there will be a great deal of dis
cussion. The Senators from Nebraska and
Kansas will make a determined effort to
nave the duty on chicory root incrrtiseiL
Tbe House fixed it at three cents and the
Senate reduced it to two jnts a pound.
Chicory is used almost entirely In making
imitation cofree and In adulterating
corfee The root is raised largely in the
two States mentioned, and is developing
into snmcthinc or an industry. Hence the
demand or the Senators for more protection.
The regular strucgle over the duties on
fish will lead to debate in which the New
England Senators can scarcely keep out.
California fruitb has always led to a pro
tracted discussion, but this time th3
Pacific coast people, owing to the conces
sions made to Mr. Jones, have been v II
taken care of on oranges and lemons
Zante cuirants, which have always b2n
a tiouble breeder, will probably come to
the front once more In the sains capacity.
The soap men will antagonize the plac
ing of a duty of one cent a pound on

"With the exception of a quiet discussion
In the cloak-rooms, the protest against the
sugar schedule filed by the Austrian tav
ernment will be ignored. Coming from a
country like Austria, however, such a pro
test immediately arouses resentment.
In rhc last ten years the United States
has purchased of Austrian products $84,
000,000. Vnd In the same period Austin,
purchased from the United States Mer
chandise to the value of $11,106,000,
s&owing a balance in favor of Austria in
that period of $73,401,000.
For Austria to protest against our do
mestic legislation. In the way of tarirr
rates under such circumstances is conslit
cred by Senators as gross Impertinence.
And the protest will never be given a
moment's consideration by the Finance
The same course will be taken with
some other protests. The veiled threat of
the Brazilian minister in his speech at
the ornlng of the Commercial Museuma
In Philadelphia the other day has attract
ed considerable attention here with no
very favorable comment for the minister.
Trade relations between the United
States and Brazil are even on a more un
equal footing than with Austria For tho
year 180G the imports from Brazil aggre
gated $71,060,046, of which aggregate
only $2,782,045 paid any duty wiiatever.
The vast aggregate of $67,277,998 came
in without paying this country on penny
of duty or revenue
On the other hand, Brazil purchased
from the United States merchandise to
the value or only $14,222,93 i, and on that
merchandise duty was collected from
nearly every dollar's worth
