placing of the poritrait of Jefferson
Davis upon the silver service which
the war vessel is now on her way up
the Mississippi to receive from the
State in whwse honor she is named.
Responding to a telegraphic request
as to whether he and the other officers
of the Mississippi were in sympathy
with the antagonism which the plac
ing of the likenes.s of the dead chief
tain of the Confederacy upon the
silver service had aroused, Capt. Fre

Courier as follows, his .dispatch be

The Answer of Fremont.
Editorial News and Courier, May 7.
"The navy is without sectional
prejudice, and its patriotism knows
no boundaries save those of the great
country at large. Fremont."'
That is the message received by the
News and Courier last night from
Captain John C. Fremont, command
ing the battleship Mississippi, now
on her way up the Mississippi river
to receive from the hands of the State
in whose honor she -as named, the
silver service presented in token of
her appreciation. Thc message came
in response to this request from the
the News and Courier:
"Resolution 'has been introduced
in the house objecting to the portrait
of Jefferson Davis on the silver ser
vice for the battleship Mississippi.
The News and Courier would be
pleased to !have an expression from
you as to whether you object, and
why you do or not.''
Last week a congressman from
Ohio by the name of Hollingsworth
introduced a resolution in the house
at Washington, ".the house of our
fathers," as Ben Hill, of Georgia,
used to call it, calling up the secre
tary of the navy to inform congress
what lesson of patriotism and what
ideals of government the gift of the
silver service presented to the battle
ship "Mississippi'' by the State of
that name would inspire. .The resolu
tion further called upon Captain Jno.
C. Fremont and the officers of the
battleship to explain whether or not
they agreed to the decoration of the
service with the likeness of Jefferson
The answer of Captain Fremont
rings like a shot from a twelve-ineh
gun: "The navy is without sectional
prejudice, and its patriotism knows
rno boundaries save those of the great
country at large.'' It will carry con
ste'rnation into the ranks of thre re
actionaries .and malcontents who seek
to keep the old .fires buning, and it
will be received with 'enthusiasm by
true hearted men everywhere, North
and South alike. What will Hollings
worth do about it? He has the ans
wer of the commanding clheer of the
battleship Mississippi. Will he move
for a court martial, or wi h.e rea.ize
that the dead past has buried its
dead, that his occulpa. a is gone,
"Under the sod and the kw.

Love and tears for sne Blut

Hats off to Capt ina Fr nmont and

In His Palace and in Banks.

present time the sulm of 7,500,00
has been found in the treasury boxe-1
of the imperial palace at Yildiz, oC
eupied before his deposition by Abdul
Hamid. Two and a half million dol
lars of this is in eash, while $5,000,
000 is marketable securities equiva
lent to cash. Furthermore, papers
were -found indicating that Abdul
Hamid has on deposit in Germany,
England. France and the United
States upwards of $15.000.000. It is
understood that the Cabinet takes the
attitude that all these foreign depos
its, as well as the treasure at Yildiz,
are the property of the State. Two
courses are open to tire government
respecting these foreign deposits: one
is to obtain them through legal pro
eess and the other through authoriza
tion from Abdul Hamid himself.
It is not believed that Abdul Ham
id will refuse to direct his agents to
pay over these sums, for the reason
that as a prisoner it is quite impos
sible for him to make use of the
money, while by giving it up he may
secure advantages during his captivi
ty. and possi-bly be given a share of
the foreign deposits and investments
for his family.

WHY A MAN MARRIES.
Some of the Many Reasons He Has
For Tempting Fate.
Why does a man marry?
For many -different reasons; but
first, last and a.ll the time-because
he wants to.
I have little faith in the piteous
tales that a-re told describing man as
a vict-im led to the altar.
He may marry -because -he wants a
girl's love, or -her money, or because
-he wants a wife; but you can always
be mightily sure tb-at he wants some
thing. He is no sacrificed lamb.
S-ometimes a man makes desperate
love to a girl when (he has no serious
intentions. If such a man gets caught
in -his own net it serves him right.

simple reason that he hias fallen in
