Tht Deth of Mrs. MeKinley.
Ferbaps it it because, in one "way or an
other, American life brings all forts and
conditions of people close together, in the
lat analysis there is a uni"rsal capacity
cltaraeteribtic of our people to feel and ex
press a biotlrerly sympathy for any wor
thv MIcw man or -woman, -whom we
know, when he or fclie is are stricken
bv nat inevitable dispensation of Divine
Tivvidence -which -we call death.
Bat really, in the case of tuch a noble
woman & the venerable parent of the
American President, death is not the -word
to use. She has more than outlived the
allottee' time of average humanity. She
Iras been Messed lit lining to see her
favorite ton come to the highest of earthly
honors and all the time to feel that, Jn
his pcn-eiial career and conduct, he has
endeavored to live up to the lessons she
taught him in childhood nnd youth, and
to the precept of the religion in -which,
he wa reared. To euch a one, death
evf comes. It only ib sleep and rest.
Without any thought of dlfierenMs du
to his puMic position and political beliefs
or entanglements, all good Americans will
be with President McKinley in spirit -when
he pay the last sad duty of a man and
a ton at the grave of hib revered mother.
Tor him they -will drop the tear of sym
pathy, and In heart, if not in person, take
liim uj the hand and tell him that he
lb favored among the children of men. Jn
knowing that, henceforth, he will have in
that Hher and brighter world a pure and
lovmjj spirit to plead with our Heaverrlv
Futhcx Quit he may be Imbued with the
feeube of patriotism, rigtat, justice and hu
manity, without which his human eminence
would c a cnare and a borrow to her
who has gone but a little while bef ire
liim, cr any of us, to that ccrtnln account
ing for the things done in the flesh.
The Smashing; of China.
On Saturday it was semi-officially an
nounced in Berlin that the Kaiser had
secured the concert of China to the oc
cu patior of ICiao Cliou Bay, and there
fore w:ndd not give it up to take Sam
Sah Irfot instead, or any other thing to
iricase anybody. "Whether this is business
ot merely bluff, of course, we do not
know; but It is certain that, if it should
-prove to be the former, tlic prospects for
tumble in the far East will be very much
improved. This view is justified by diplo
matic gossip in the German capital, ac
cording to which Russia will insist upon
the evacuation or Kino Cliou and is vigor
ously preparing to back its demand -with
fvTve if nwesbary.
Ir connection with this interesting de
Tdopmeiit in China," there is Doth humor
and pathos in the sudden acceptance of
the states quo by Japan since the change
r Germany's base from Kiao Cliou to
Sara EaU was suggested. Japan now pro
fessos polite satisfaction with the pres
ent location of the Kaite' on the Yellow
Sea, provided the zone of occupation does
not extend "beyond a hundred miles In
land. As the most effective base for
ni.val operations against Japan, that na
tion at first was very indignant to see
Xiao Chou become Teutonic; but the Mi
kado promptly recognizes that as a bettJr
thing than to have Germany entrenched
cu the mainland of Kien Fo, across the
Strait of Formosa, over against the Jap
anese island of the same name.
It lb indisputable that the various cabl
nelb of continental Europe are much exer
cied in consequence of the present aspect
of affairs in and aronnd China. Although
the situation is not dibcussed in an open
manner, there is- a general consensus of
opinion among politicians that, if matters
nre allowed to progress any further, prac
tically a partition of the Chinese empire
cannot be postponed. China's supine
qurat in view of the circumstances Is looked
upon as evidence that the Brother of the
Bun expect n degree of immunity from a
fatting out among the land grabbers; tak
ing heartfrom theaxpnrtencaof the Turkish
Sultan in tht same line. It is useful to
remember, however, that Abdul Bamid's
lucky ebcapc from having his European
Turkey carved up and swallowed during
recent yearn hu.6 iea due to the pro
tecting arm of Russia, and thaVthe Czar
is uearly In as good a situation to ex
tend lb over China.
Certainly It la not Impossible that his
doing j tuijliL lead to bad blood, and possi
bly to an ultimate Anghi-Gcrrunn alliance
against' him. "Whatever may be the bed

The attention of Secretaries Sherman and
Long Is called to the declaration of the
Madrid Imparclal that the Spanish gov

Neither the Congress nor the Adminis
tration sh-mld fail to keep a weather
eye out for tricks --In Central America.
The main object of the "Greater Kep-ib-lic"
is to vacate the canal concession
of Nicaragua through a surrender by tint
state of its sovereignty, which It is as
suiiied by the promoters of the scheme
would abrogate all treaties. The ri.'eiit
concession of "exclusive rights of na'Iga
tion to an English steamship company, in
defiance of American canal rights, and
tliis other scheme of Dryish dlplomcf
to defeat our national Himiltlon, mist
be watched. At preseut the Greater ite-public-
of Central America is only an al
liance for diplomatic intercourse. It is
intended to make it u sovereign state.
It is our business to see that nothing of
that kind si all be done without includ
ing full protection to our paramou.it
rights in the promises.
Weyler yowls to be placed "fn com

Anti-civil service reform Congressmen
do not appear to be as numerous as they
might be. The difficulty probably is
that u majority orthe House Republicans
do not like to line up outside of the Ad
ministration breastworks, while the pie
counter is inside.
In the friendliest way possible Prim'e
Henry of Prussia will visit Pekln and hob
nob with the Emperor, it is reported
from Berlin that he will present, directly
from the Kaiser, a program of ref inns
in the Chinese empire. It Is not so stated,
but we do not doubt that, in case there
are not any Russians in the neighborhood,
he will give his Chinese majesty four
hours in which to adopt them.
WAS JUSTIFIABLE HOMICIDE.
Harry Porter Exonerated by Both
Judge and Jury.
Terrc Haute, Ind., Dec. 12. The grand
jury has refused to indict Harry Porter,
the sixteen-year-old boy, who shot and
killed James Sturgeon, the wealthy Park
county stockman, when he caught the
latter running from the Porter home, which
he had been f oi bidden by the boy and his
father because of his attentions to Mrs.
The judge ordered Porter's release, and
the icsult meets with general approval.
A sister has been prostrated since the
tragedy and may not recover. Allliam
iSpeucer, who had been sent home from tiiu
asylum as cured, attended the funeral of
Sturgeon and became Insane again.
SLEEPING CAIt SNORER.
Editor Disturbed by Him Sues a
Topeka. Kan-, Dec. 12. A dispatch from
Garden City says that Editor J. J. Miller,
of the Kama. Fe Monitor, proposes to test
the question in the courts whether a rail
road corporation is liahle for damages by
permitting a passenger to snore all night
long, thus disturbing the quiet and rest of
all the other pas-engers.
The case grows out of an experience
Miller had with Sheriff Bills, who, it Is
alleged, snored in. tones so loud as to pre
vent all the other passengers on a west
bound Santa Fe train from sleeping.

Guadalajara, M ex., Dec. 12. -Salvador
Arouiz and Jsmael Bermude., two promi

quarreled over a trivial matter and agreed
to settle the ditfiiulty by fighting a duel.
Seconds were chosen and the alTairof
honor occurred, resulting in Aroniz being
shot through the head at the first round
and Instantly killed. Bermude has been
arrested and is in jail.
The two men were engaged to marry
sisters and had always been friends.

THE WEEK IN GOKGRESS.
Congress has been iu sesslou one week,
and the House has passed one appropriation
bill tint of pensions which is a pretty
good record so far as the disposition of
business iscc-ncenicd. Thls.however, promi
nent members say, is not to be taken as
an indication that all business will be so
quickly disposed or" in the House, or that
an uuusuully early adjournment o Con
gress will taki place. It is a part of the
AdmiuisUutiun'h program to have Congress
pass the appropriation bills as rapidly as
possible, and get them out of the way, and
then, after the Hawaiian and currency
questions are settled one way or aiuthar,
Congress may adjourn at any lime without
creating irrcpaiable disappointment or in
jury. The Cuban question Is bound to b-j n
jecttd into the proceedings, and a great
"deal of talking will be done, but the result
can only at present be conjectured. The
caucus to be held tomorrow night will de
termine, in all probability, the attitude of
tnc Democrats relative to Cuban andothir
proposed legislation, and a long or short
session will much depend upon the con
ditions that will be reached at this caucus.
The legislative, executive and judicial
appropriation bill will probably be reported
today by Mr. Blnglutiti. who will ask the
House to' take the nill up tomorrow. Ihls
bill carries with It the civil service appro
priation, and before It passes the Housy
it will afford ample opportunity to the
antl civil service law members to recite
thpir little speeches for the purpose or
having them printed in the Cougredsional
Record and distributed in thatslupeamong
their office-seeking consHtue it.-i at home
When these constituents read the speeches
In tl e Congressional Record they will
feel fully salaried that their Representa
tives are doing all lu their po.ver to nuke
placpj for them after first securing the
repeal or modification or the civil service
law. The program at present iiillined for
the benefit of the anti-civil service reform
members does not include an attack on
the appicpriutiun bill. There will bo no
attempt made by them to defeat Its pas
sage, but they will talk and talk, ind
then, at the proper time, will vote for tin
bill a? originally presented. It would be
contrary to u cardinal principle of the
Republican party for a member not to
vote for an appropriation. The legislative
executive and judicial appropriation Ml
may get through tlu- Huust Tuesday, but
it Is thought morf probable that the debate
will carry It over until Wednesday.
Mr Hitt, chairman of the House Com-mitlc-J
on Foreign Relations, will today
cal' up the bill lie reported Friday, jela
tive t. Iho killing ,)C seals hy American
ciUzeiis. The bill absolutely prohibits
AiiKiicniiK from engaging in the business
In the North Pacific Ocean and Behring
Sea. The bill was unanimously agreed
upon in the committee, and when reported
Frid-ty, Mr. llitt had not the faintest idea
whc.i lie asked unanimous consent to pass
it that it would meet with opposition.
Mr Johnson of North Dakota, however,
haj a bill of Ids own prepared, which
has for Us object the reverse of the Foreign
Reh-tions Committee's bill, and he akd
tha-. the bill come up in" the ordinary v ay
toU y. Mr. Johnson's bill will provide
for the extermination or the Bourfng Sea
scx.ls. He says the seals are yielding rhe
Gvw'rnment nothing, as the exclusive priv
ilege granted by the Government las
brought it but a few thosuand dollars
since 1&90, but since that the Go--ern-mciit
has spent hundreds of thoiiandj of
dollars in commissions and in maintaining
a jK.lrol t.T bhips in Bciiniig Sea. Vhe
seal-, he professes, are a worthless asset,
and their extermination will be in the 'n
tcrest of peac among nations and of
economy to this country.
