-The Olsneros horror in Cuba I an ob
ject ies?oa -which nobody can misunder
stand. In its details it does not dirfer
from! u thousand atrocities perpetrated
ngalnut subjects of Spain and citizens of
the United States; but the fact that, in
titles case, the victim is a young, beautiful
and accomplished girl, the niece of the
.Marquis of Santa Lucia, president of the
.Republic of Cuba, serves to bring the de
tails of the story and the hellishness of
the crime more luridly before the eyes of
civilized men and women.
Because Evangelina Betancourt Cosslo y
Qisaeros, who had accompanied her patriot
father in ltifl exile to the Isle of Pines,
dared defend her honor against the lust
of the Spanish governor, Berriz, a nephew
of Canovats del Castillo, she Ih sentenced to
the tortures and living death of twenty
years penal servitude in Ceuta.the frlgbt
, Jul African priPon colony of Spain. Berriz,
the fiend who attempted her outrage, la
reported to be now In Havana urging Wey
ler to ooufirm the sentence.
It Is possible at this time for the
American people to see the force of
what this journal has been proclaiming
and urging, morning and night, for many
months, and what is the solemn fact, that
tliis Government all along, under the dicta
or international law and the mandates of
oonitnou justice and humanity, has had
-mid today possesses the right to interfere
and put a stop to this Spanish warfare,
compared with which the hostile practices
of Comanches and Apaches have been
kind and Christian.
If, at this point, President McKlnley
does not interpose with all the full force
and power of the military and naval
arms of the United States Government
he will forever stand a disgraced man
In the eyes of the world's civilization
lie may think that his seventy-odd million
fellow-citizens will submit and permit his
disgmce and universal execration! It
he beJieveb that, he is mistaken. Bis
disgrace "will be the Intolerable disgrace
-of every man and woman of America. If
lie Imac'nes that they will submit to
this got ernntental and national infamy, be
is wberullv misled.
Score One for "Uncle John."
Another and the final note has been
communicated to the Japanese legation
by our Secretary of State. It is under
stood to be terse and to the point. It
advise the representative of the Mikado
that the Hawaiian Incident must be con
sidered as closed. The United States
does uot accept the contention of Japan
that the rights of Japanese subjects "will
be affected, there being no law of this
country preventing the people of the
empire from enjoying all the rightB and
privileges appertaining to American cit
izens. Tnere are reports afloat that the text
of the note is even stronger than the
foiegolng would indicate. Whether or
not it informed Japan that any action we
inilght take In Bawall could not inter
nationally Interest the Mikado, it is to
be hoped that it said so exactly. As the
nation protectorate over Bawall, we
cannop accept interference or much evi
dence of inclination in that line. If we
are rrccUy Informed, the action of
our premier in this case has been dic
tated by good, sterling Americanism, and
will have the approval of the whole people.
SdyhX'hliifts in Philanthropy.
One tiling after another has been sug
gested to cure the "saloon habit" in slum
districts. Temperance saloons have been
e$ta!iihcd, coffee houses have been start
ed, missions have been plumped down into
the worstor thcalleys, reading rooms have
been furnished for people who have not
the habit of reading, and pretty nearly
cverthlng eKe has been tried, but tnc cor
ner saloon, with its political Junta over
head, fctlll flourishes, and one or two New
York mtnlbters have come out flatly with
the opinion that it will have to exist,
for all that they can bee, as long as the
rich man's club dots, and for precisely
the name reason.
The thing which seems hardest for the
average nineteenth century citizen to com
prehend is that "souls are not saved in
bundles." The problem of the present day
Is how to reconcile public with private
economy, how to make use of all tho
new Inventions by which work may be
lessened and living cheapened, and still
keep hold of the home Anybody who
toiak that a roan can be broken of any
bad habit by merely changing the place
where he spends his evenings, or by at
tending church an hour or two a week, is
arguing a very" flimsy proposition, for, in
the first place, it Is not easy to get him
to do these things, and In the second place,
they have really comparatively little in
fluence on Lis character.
Thete Is Just one fountain of life for tho
American nation, and that Is the home.
If ajuau has a clean and comfortable
home, with a healthy, cheery family In it,
and some reasonable chance of owning that
home during his lifetime, that simple fact
will do more to make him a good man
and a good citizen than anything else"
under the sun, and what Is more, his
sons and daughters will grow up with a
certain tendency to be good citizens.
It the meney which has been expended In
dtessing the sores of the body politic had
been expended In purifying Its system,
there would be more results to allow for
It. "Where men brcatlte pure air and
drink pure water, and have enough to eat
and enough to do. vice is apt to be the
exception; when they aie heided in tene
ments, with an insufficiency of water,
light and air, thrown into enforced idle
ness ever;, now and then, and when the
wives liave not the strength or the time
cr the knowledge to make a home, what Is
to be expected but vice? The time will
come when such housing as the poor now
have iu our large cities will be recognized
as barbarism It will be regarded as we
now itgard the lack of quarantine and
sanitary precautions during the pebtilence
of the Dark Ages. Organization is all
very well, but you cannot build a house
upon sand, much less of band, and that
seems to be what some of our well-ineaulng
citizens aie trying to do.
Europe Souhri Onr Viceroy.
A European dispatch, hitherto referred
to in this Journal, discloses a source of
American mortification that we do not
like to contemplate. If the report be
true the fact is humiliating and disgrace
ful to the Government and citizenship of
the United States.
It is announced that Gen. Stewart "L.
Woodford, minister to Spain, has been
acting under instructions to "sound' the
cabinet." of Europe, and to ascertain how
far uiey might bo disposed to preserve
neutrality in the event that we should
find it convenient to exercise our privi
leges and rights by recognizing the bellig
erency or the independence of Cuba, or by
interfering to stop the horrible saturnalia
of crime, outrage and butchery being in
dulged in by the Spanish authorities and
troops in that island.
Such a thing IB infamous. Is the great
Republic of the "Western Bemisphere a dog
that It should first receive the permission
of England, France, or Germany before
daring to wag its tall or to show Its teeth?
It is said that the governments applied to
have declined to discusb the question, and, iu
so acting, they have administered & well
mciited snub to the cowardly diplomacy
of the Administration
What right have the American people
conferred upon Marcus A. Banna, or upon
'William McKlnley, that they should drag
this nation suppliant at the feet of Lord
Salisbury, M. Banotaux, or 'the German
minister of foreign affairs, beseeching
them for permission to do the things that
our national honor, duty and a Just regard
for the dictates of Justice and humanity
compel ub to, it we are not to pass down
to postentyas a repuhlicof cur.s andwolves?
To destruction with such evidences ot
turpitude and dastardllness! We are a
nation; let us act like one!
We are becoming so used to the mis
representation abroad of American 6entl
ments.anrt principles that the thing has
become an old story. It amuses, and, per
Laps, deludes, the foreigniTs, and the peo
ple guilty of It are sufficiently discredited
at home to make the whole thing rather
a subject for ridicule than otherwise.
We have been familiar with the misrepresentation-of
the United States and
of its people in England by one Thomas
F. Bayard, of Delaware, who is under
stood to claim descent from the Chevalier
Dayard, who was a bachelor. We grew
accustomed to that during the weary years
of gloom thpt marked the Bntish-Clevc-land
Administration. More recently we
have been treated to the inaccuracies of
statement indulged in bj the euchoo, Mr.
Gray, of the same Lilliputian constituency.
At last we have the pleasure to learn
that Mr. Calderon Carlisle, of the District
of Columbia, counselor to the Spanish lega
tion, and Knight Commander or the Order
of Isabella the Catholic, has been telling
officials In Europe that the people of
this country do not sympathize with the
Cuban patriots, as the press of the United
Slates and the debates in the Congress
would lead them to believe.
When Mr. Calderon Carlisle dies and
goe3 to heaven, it is a lyre and not a
harp that ho will be Invited to plunk.
South Carolina Is becoming excited over
the water question, which is acurious thing
to excite South Carolina; but then, curious
things happen every day now. There are
people iu the city ot Charleston who want
a public bath; not that they themselves
need it, of course, but they think other
people do. Upon hearing this, an Augusta
(Georgia) paper remarked that of course
Charleston could have a public bath If
desired, but most people liked the private
variety. Then the fat was in the fire in
deed, and it j-puttered. A Charleston paper
got up and went after the Augusta, editor
and said that the people of Augusta never
took any baths atall, because theycouldn't;
because water was neededfora bath, and
Augusta had nothing but mud; because, in
fact, an Augusta man didn't know" what
a bath was except from hearsay.
Now, If this happened in Erance wo
might expect to hear tha tthe two esteemed
editors started out from their respective
cities and met with a crash midway, and
either shot each other to piece3 or made
up the 1 use and went off on a spree. But
nothing of the kind lias happened, and it
is Just as veil. We are finding out la this
nineteenth century that fire ia not good
to eat, and it would appear from this con
troversy that some people are finding out
that water Is good to scrub with.
Seriously, it would be the best thing la
the world for almost any big city In this
country to establish public bath-houses and
washrooms, where any woman who chose
could come and do her washing andferub
her children, and talec a refreshing bath
herbelt, and, where every man c6uld splash
around In unlimited purity when he chose.
Of courbe, tuts building would cost some
thing to the taxpayers, but here is a point
which should be considered; nearly every
body in the taxpaylng classes hires wash
ing don, and If the washing could bo
done without costing tho washerwoman
anything for fire, tho price of the work
would go down to a considerable degree;
and the danger of fire would be lessened,
too; and the clothes would be washed iu
a place which would be under some sort
of .supervision, instead of in germ-breeding
alleys, as they too often are. And then,
something would be gained In the in
creased cleanliness of fellow-citizens. It
lb not too much to say that probably nine
tenths, ot the American people would rather
be clean than dirty if they had a fair
chance; but If water must be lugged in
palls up one, two or three flights of stairs,
and then boated on a stove, and a place
found totoke thebathinone ortwoorthree
tiny, crowded rooms occupied by the fam
ily, it may be doubted if much more than
one-tenth would take the trouble to tub In
the English fashion, or to scrub floors
Dutch fashion, or to do much of anything
in the way of cleanliness more than they
must. Of courj-c, there are some people
who are clean by Instinct; but there are
others who need some help.
At the bankers' convention in Detroit
a Wisconsin geutleman, on Thursday, read
a paper In which he declared that "In
these times ot peace and prosperity, our
Government bhould not feel compelled to
resort to deceptive expedients in order to
maintain its credit." Laying aside the
questions o "peace and prosperity," what
can be the "deceptive expedients" to which
the gentleman alludes? Is it the tariff
that he means, or only the extra-legal
Treasury regulation which deprives the
Government of Its option to pay In silver
The prank of the Webt Point cadets In
fpiking the "leveille" gun at the post is
but Imitation of theli elders. Cleveland,
Olney and Ilanna have been btibyfor years
in bpiklng the national gun. The people
will pull the plug out some day.
The British government is sending out
"prosperity" publications in connection with
the rising iu Northern India.' We are told
that .'15,000 British troops have been con
centrated, and that the natives are be
ginning to be overawed. As there are
300,000 of the latter, fully armed and in
sane with fanatical ire against Great Brit-,
ain, perhaps It would'bc ns well to await
fuithor advices before singing the requiem
of the rebellion.
The lynching of a white tramp who
had attempted an assault on a farmer's
wife within the suburbs ot Chicago is evi
dence that this sort of violence Is not
confined ro the South; but that American
communities almost anywhere, when prop
erly invited, will Tise to the occasion and
transact the business. It Is very wrong,
but it is very nntural. Perhaps theeaslest
way to prevent such "outrages'' would, he
to pass a national law making offenses
of this description, whether attempted or
accomplished, capital. Until something of
the kind Is done there will be short bhrift
for the rape fiend. And berve him right,
CONSCIENCE IN OHIO.
An Honest Minister Sends Funds,
Purt of Which IsIleturned.
Columbus, Ohio, Aug. 20. A minister
of the Gospel has sent conscb-nre money
to ttte amount of $648.91 to Treasurer
Barron, of Franklin county, The writer
says that when he lived In Columbus, some
years ago, he did not make full returns
of his personal property. Be knew, he
says, that it was not customary to do so
and followed the custom. But now, wish
ing to preach absolute honesty to his
parishioners he has gone over his returns
carefully and Bends the ubove amount.
Treasurer Barron figured out that S138.20
too much had been tent because ot dif
ference ot tax rule In certain years, and
returned this much of the "conscience"
money to the minister,

The recent Populist convention at Colum
bus, Ohio, and its action in nominating an
independent Populist ticket, has stirred
up a pretty -state" of affairs. Charges of
bribery and all ortB.ot things are floating
alioul on account of certain checks signed
by Secretary Dlckrot the national commit
tee The People's party was compelled to
take cognizance of tho arfalr, and a com
mittee was appointed to Investigate. A
whitewash renort ,was made. Now comes
along the minority ot that investigating
committee, and that minority tells quite a
different story; all of which Is stirring Ohio
politics to the -very bottom, and raising
trouble In the Republican party, and with
Mark Banna and Charley Dick in particu
lar. Amor.g the witnesses cnlllcd by this com
mittee wn s J. H . Taylor, a Populist dele
gate from Cuyahoga county. Mr. Taylor
tcll.s an interesting story 'which proves
Major Dick to bt a tyro in politics. Mr.
Taylor said that he became convinced from
what ho heard that Major Dick and hlb
associates wore endeavoring to secure the
attendance at the Populist convention of
person! opposed to fusiou and that they
were .spending large sums of money to
nccon.pllsh that purpose. To prove his
suspicions Mr. Taylor sought an interview
with Major Dick at which interview the
major said it would bo greatly to the ad
vantage of the Republican party and to
Mr. Hamin., in particular, it the People's
paity would nominate a ticket; that he
was willing to do all he could to induce
the members of that party to nominate
such a ticket and that he would furnish
money to be expended for that purpose
and was desirous of securing an inter
view with Mr. Hugo Preyer, a prominent
and Influential member ot the party. Mr.
Taylor said that Major Dldk requested
that he nrrange un interview with Preyer.
Major Dick intimating that Mr. Preyer'a
services would be a very good thing to
have for the Republican muchlnc In Ohio.
Instead of keeping the uppolntmettt Major
Dick camo back to Washington, but when
he returned to Cleveland, at the suggestion
ot Mr. Taylor, tho major Indited a note
to Mr. Preypr asking for an Interview and
naming the hours when he could be seen.
Now comes the second chapter of what
has proven to be a deliberate effort
to debauch the voters ot Ohio It ap
pears from the testimony ot the witnesses
that both Taylor and Preyer met Major
Dick at his office, and the major, with
that Innocence that has characterized
everything he has ever done In a political
way, talked freely In tho presence of u.
third party. Be told both men that ho
was actuated by nelflsh motives and
was working In the Interest of the Re
publican party, and declared that tho
nomhiHtlon of a Populist ticket would
help the Republican cause. Be Traukly
stated that he wanted such a ticket
nominated, und added, as Mr. Taylor
told the committee which met iu Colum
bus, that he was, willing to furnish the
means to run the campaign, establish
headquarters, provide literature ami speak
ers to a reasonable extent for the Peo
ple's party, provided a ticket was put In
the field; that he wanted thm to go to
Columbus and use their influence in tho
nomination of such a ticket, and all
that sort ofAnlng., Then Mr. Taylor said
that when they -.got through tills part
ot their talk Wie major, with that Innocence
which apepdfs to mark him, asked what
they ueededVfor their pergonal expenses.
Mr Pej-erinidertly btattd that he needed
nothing for'blnisatr., hut" that inasmuch as
Mr. Taj Ipr -Npisnot-so wellsituated (What
ever that ml4hetHBin,he might be ableto
use a HttleiznQne-
Mr. Taylor recited how the major gave
him a check for $25 for his personal
expenses and three round-trip tickets
from Cleveland to Columbus and told
him of seveu others he had purchased.
Meanwhile thMnajbr endeavored to ascer
tain how many more ot the delegate to
the convention would need means with
which to go and return, and at the request
ot Mr. Hugo Preyer a.'ttthiin a eneck for
$2ri thlh being, as the major so Inno
cently puts it, a personal loan to the man
whom he did not kuow up to the time of
that meeting. Mr. Pnyer being put upou
the stand testifies how the major proposed
to pay all expenses if the Middle ot-the-Road
Populists put a .-straight ticket In tlw
field. In telling the story Mr. Preyer said
that the major spoke out "fair and plain."
und that he "made nobouesaboutlt." The
rest of the testimony taken substantiated
what these two men had to say, and was
concluded with tue statement of both
Preyer and Taylor that they had fought
the Interview with Dick solely for the
purpose of showing up what methods were
being used to carry the State for the Re
publican ticket this fall.
After reviewing the evidence Messrs.
Groot and Witt, two ot the prominent
members of the People's party, who rormed
a part ot the minority ot the investignt
lng committee, conclude their review with
the following statement to the people ot
Ohio: "If the People's party Is to be
controlled by the Republican manugursand
auctioned off by them in the open market
without protest, then we think It ought to
tease to exist -that It has lostlts usefulness.
If the Tank und file of the party in this
State submit without protest to the machina
tions ot the Republican bosses, then we
have mistaken the character and temper of
that party Wc believe they will not
quietly submit to being hauled about in the
intciest of the party of plutocracy, and
they win demonstrate at the polls this fall,
by their votes, that they are actuated by
principles, and will not be governed and
controlled by those who have shouted loud
est and have struggled hardest to secure a
mJddle-of-the-ioad ticket in this Btate in
the Interest alone of a nest of political
takiTR inside our ranks, and M. A. Banna in
particular. It will bt found, In our opin
ion, when the rotes are counted, that tlu
nominees ot the convention will be greatly
short on votes."
Assistant Secretary Vanderlip is some
thing of an optimist. Discussing the finan
cial situation recently, ho declared that
the conditions were such that the Govern
ment need no longer fear a raid upon its
gold reserve. TradoConditlons were such,
he held, that gold would flow toward tins
country, and that in the ordinary course
of business that metal would be piled up
in tho Treasury. The crops have to be
moved and there is now, and for some
time will continue to be, a big demand for
small notes, and this, ho says, will bring
gold Into the Treasury. The only two
methods by which we can lose gold ap
pear, from tho Treasury standpoint, to
have been stopped. The one method is
thiough tho balance ot trade being against
us and the other through the sale of our
securitles'.by foreign operators. Mr. Van
derlip says the new tariff has at this
early day demonstrated that it will re
duce Importations, which means the pay
ment to foreigners of less money, while
existing conditions are forcing them to
come to us to buy. The short crops in
Europe and elsewhere are forcing other
nations to ship their gold here and we
are exchanging our products for their
gold. In the Treasury, as elsewhere, there
seems to be a determined effort to make
the country think that the lise in the
price of wheat and inflow of gold with
which to buy itare due solely to the Ding
ley tariff law.

the courts to compel the city committee to
carry out the instructions of the State cen
tral committee with reference to the prim
ary election next Monday, was beaten to
day. Judge IlarLm deciding that he had no
jurisdiction Iu the matter.
Tonight they held a meeting and decided
to take no part In the primaries called by
the city committee, but to hold primaries
of thoir.own. They propose to put up a
complete ticket and then to appeal to the
State central committee for recognition. If
this Is denied they will, demand of the
board of supervisors of election that their
candidates and emblem be given the

"Washington Cubans Indignant Over
the Sentence of Senoritu Cisneroi.
The Cubnns in Washington are much
aroused over the case of Evangelina Cosslo
tie Cianeros, sentenced to twenty years'
imprironnient ac the Spanish penal colony
at Ceuta upon the charge of aiding the
Insurgents. Col. A. A. Agnirra, oue of
the leading Cubans here, in speaklngotthis
matter last night, said:
"It Is only one of the cases that we
come across every day, and is a proof
of the brutal manner In which Spain is
conducting what she calls war. The
object ot the Spaniards Is undoubtedly
to depopulate the island and then re
people it with native Spaniards. Ber
Intention is to compel the Cuban pa
triots to lay down their arms In order
to save the lives ot their families. This
Inhuman war should have beeu stopped
long ago It Is a blot on the civiliza
tion of the nineteenth century. The case
or Mrs. Ioniiuguez, who ost her mind
from the brutal treatment of her keepers,
should, arouse the indignation ot the
whole ot mankind. That such atroci
ties should be permitted on American
soil and within sight ot -our own shores

the institutions and aims of this country
seems alirfost incredible.
"We Cubans have always looked with
admiration to this country, uud watched
with keen interest its progress and de
velopment. In the late civil war we not
only prayed for the success of the Union,
but many Cubans fought for its preserva
tionnot because we had any feelings
against the South, but because we saw
in the maintenance of the Union a future
hope of help. We wished a powerful na
tion on thi3 side of the Atlantic to de
Tond us and tho rest of the American
Republics against greedy Europe and brutal
Spain. It is amazing that this country,
taking into consideration our feeling, does
nothing to stop this war, when a word
from President McKlnley would put an
end to itr. "You have the case of Maxi
milian, In Mexico, when France, a power-,
ful nation, Immediately desisted in her
attempt to conquer that republic when
she realized that tho United States would
