Tbe Official Paper of San Juan Connty.
THURSDAY. FEBRUARY 17th, 1898.
Benob Ddpuy db Lome, Spanish
minister to the United States, will have
to step down and out. He does not
deny that he wrote the letter to Don
Jose Canelajas, which was purloined
by an agent of the Cuban junta, in
which he insults the president of the
United States and through him the
American people. It mattera not that
his brutal attack on the president was
made in a private letter to a private
citizen. So was the letter written by
Lord Sackville. Its contents were in
finitely less insulting than those of De
Lome's letter, but they were a criticism
of the administration and the president
and he was recalled at the request of
the latter. In De Lome's letter this
representative of the Spanish govern
ment says of the president:
Besides the natural and inevitable
coarseness with which he repeats all that
thepressand public opinion of Spain has
said of Weyler, it shows once more what
McKlnley is—weak and eaterine to the
rabble, and, besides, a low politician who
desires to leave the door open to me and
to stand well with the Jingoes of his party.
Alter this coarse and ribald attack
on the president Senor de Lome can
hardly complain if he is regarded as
persona non grata by the head of the
government to which he is accredited.
Hu.-h language, no matter how it came
to light, since he does not deny that
he used it, necessarily terminates all
possibility of further relations with our
government. If he shall not be prompt
ly recalled by the Spanish government
—as undoubtedly demanded in the
cable yes trod ay addressed by the sec
retary of state to Minister Woodford—
he will be given his passports. It
would be an interesting commentary
on the hypocrisies of diplomatic inter
course if the language respecting Presi
dent Me Kin ley's message on Cuban
affairs which he employs in this con
fidential letter to his Spanish friend
could be contrasted with his official
utterances on that subject iu his con
versations with the officials of the
state department. This revelation of
the private views of the Spanish min
ister on the pacific tone ot the presi
dent's message—unless most vigorous
ly and emphatically repudiated and
condemned by the Spanish govern
ment —may exercise an important in
fluence on the course of our diplomatic
treatment of the Cuban question.
The January customs receipts under
the Dingley law were more than 25 per
cent in excess of the customs receipts
in January of last year under the Wil
son law. Mr. Dingley and his associ
ates have good reason to be satisfied
with the new revenue measure which
they placed upon the statute book six
months ago. It has since that time
produced far more revenue than did
the Wilson law in the first six months
of its operations, and there is every
reason to believe that it will supply
from this time forward sufficient re
ceipts to meet the running expenses of
the government. The following table
shows the total earnings under the
Wilson law during the first six months
compared with the receipts of the
Dingley law during its six months, and
shows a balance in favor of the Ding
ley law of $13,513,380:

The daily papers of last week con
tained a dispatch from Berlin saying
that a bill increasing the North Ger
man Lloyd's subsidy by 1,500,000 marks
for fifteen years had been approved by
the Bundesrath and was going to the
Reichstag on the morrow. This pro
posed increase is on condition that the
North Gerniau Lloyd's increases its
monthly sailings for East Indian ports
to a fortnightly service. Somewhat
over a year ago the German Minister
for the Interior declared tor this in
crease, saying: "There was every justi
fication for protecting German enter
prise by increased subsidies." And
"Engineering," the great paper repre
senting the British iron trade and de
pendent industries, writing at that
time of the German trade in India,
said: "In 1888 the total value of goods
exported by Germany was £750,000, in
1895 the value was £7,000,000." Ger
many is now paying $1,986,400 in sub
sidies annually and the proposed addi
tion of 1,500,000 marks will increase the
subsidies to about $2,400,000, and she
thinks this large annual payment justi
fiable by the increased exports. Eng
land is now paying, or was two years
ago, $3,210,434 in subsidies and finds it
profitable. It is not necessary to say,
however, that both Germany and Eug-
M nd disapprove of our paying any sub -

In the manufacture of jute ruga in
Sakal, the seat of that industry in
Japan, about 9,600 persons are t/Bm
ployed, mostly girls and boys between
7 and 16 years old. There is no invest
ment of capital in large central plants,
but the looms are are set up in the
dwellings of the work-people, averag
ing about three looms to each dwelling.
The same distribution of looms is ob
served in the manufacture of wool
rugs. In this industry important ad
vances have lately been made, as the
result of which rugs are now turned
out that in appearance and durability
are almost equal to Turkish carpet. As
mostly children of from 7 to 16 years
of age are employed in the manufacture
of Japanese rugs, at wages ranging from
ten to twenty cents per day, it is not
difficult to see what the effect upon
the American carpet industry would
be if the jute and wool rugs of Japan
were to be admitted to our market free
It must be an edifying spectacle to
the average Democrat of the country to
see Popocratic Chairman Jones, who
holds his position through the influ
ence of the silver-mine owners' wing
of the Democratic party, wavering be
tween opinions as to whether he shall
not decapitate the man who led the
Democratic party to victory in 1892.
The silver-mine owners and their allies
in the Democratic party, so called, are
demanding the removal of Wm.'H.
Harrity, the Pennsylvania member of
the .Democratic National Committee,
because he does not subscribe to the
free silver doctrine. It was Mr. Har
rity whose splendid management led
the Democratic party to success in 1892,
and to see the element of the party
which led it to defeat in 1896 now de
manding the political scalp of the one
successful warrior of that party is a
Former Secretary Carlisle in the
last Forum puts in a plea for the abol
ishment of the electoral college, as at
present constituted, and the choice of
president and vice-president by direct
popular vote, or by an electorial college
in which the minorities in each state
may have representation. Though it
is doubtful whether the legislatures of
the existing generation will have an
opportunity to vote on such a proposi
tion, there can be little doubt that the
people of the country would thorough
ly indorse such a change.

An Eminent New York Chemist and Scien

The distinguished New York chemist,
T. A. Slocum, demonstrating his discov
ery of a reliable and absolute cure for
Consumption (Pulmonar Tuberculosis)
and all bronchial, throat, lung and chest
diseases, stubborn coughs, cattarrhal
affections, general decline and weakness,
loss of flesh, and all conditions of wast

TLES (all different) of bis New Discov
eries to any afflicted reader of The
Islander writing for them.
His "New Scientific Treatment" has
cured thousands permanently by its
imely use, and he considers it a simple
professional duty to suffering humanity
to donate a trial of his infallible cure.
Science daily develops new wonders,
and this great chemist patiently experi
menting for years, has produced results
as beneficial to humanity as can be
claimed by any modern genius. His as
sertion that lung troubles and consump
tion are curable in any climate is proven
by "heartfelt letters of gratitude/' filed
in his American and European labora
tories in thousands from those cured in
all parts of the world.
Medical experts concede that bronchial,
chest and lung troubles lead to Consump

Tickle the Karth With a Hm.
The gardener will always find abun
dant success if be will not neglect this
tickling of the soil with a hoe or culti
vator. It is wonderful what tillage
will bring out of the soil. Most men
must till to keep down weeds. They
do not realise that the benefits of this
work are far above any mere weed
killing. By persistent cultivation we
get the soil loose aud mellow, porous
and light, and so air can enter and
roots freely brauch and distribute them
selves throughout the entire mass of
earth within their reach. Furthermore,
tillage is a breaking-up process, parti
cles of rock and organic matter being
reduced in size and made available for
the nutrition of crops. Then there is
the immeasurable effect of shallow sur
face cultivation in forming a mulch
upon the surface of the ground, a thin
layer of loose, dry earth to cut off the
rise of moisture to the surface and its
subsequent evaporation and loss to the
use of the growing plants. Water in a
drouth is a priceless boon to vegetables,
and conserving the supplies of mois
ture is one of the most vital subjects
with which the agriculturist has to
deal. Tillage is to a certain degree
manure, as was claimed bv Jethro Tull
of old.—M. Sumner Perkins, in Ameri
Tot* Mllltoaa a Tear.
When people buy. try, and buy again, it
meana they're satisfied. The people of the
United States are now buying Cascarete

that Caacarets are tbe most delightful bowel

A Ltwon la Fruit Packing;.
Let me urge upon your readers the
practice of wrapping apples and pears,
when picked separately, in paper and
packed in boxes and barrels and put
away in a cool, airy place. Put up
thus they will keep two to three months
longer and retain their flavor much
better. Such sorts as King, that keep
till about this time, when put in paper,
will keep till spring, ana fall apples
till this time or later. Fall pears can
be kept thus till January and February.
Apples in bins now, by being thus
wrapped and packed, will keep till
May and June. Try it.—A. M. Purdy.
HOW TO FIND OUT.
Fill a bottle or common glass with urine
and let it stand twenty-four hours: a sedi
ment or settling indicates an unhealthy
condition ot the kidneys. When urine
stains linen it is evidence of kidney troub
le. Too frequent desire to urinate or pain
in the back, is also convincing proof that
tbe kidneys and bladder are out of order.
WHAT TO DO.
There is comfort in the knowledge so
often expressed, that Dr. Kilmer's Swamp
Root, the great kidney remedy fulfills
every wish in relieving pain in the back,
kidneys, liver, bladet and every part of
the urinay passage It corrects inability
to hold urine and scalding pain in passing
it. or bad effects following use of liquor,
wine or beer, and overcomes that un
pleasant necessity of being compelled to
get up many times during the night to
urinate. The mild and the extraordinary
effect of Swam-Root is soon realized. It
stands tbe highest for its wonderful cures
of the moat distressing cases. If you need
a medicine you should have the best.
Sold by druggists, price fifty cents and
one dollar. You may have a sample bot
tle and pamphlet both sent free by mail.
