The clamor of the Bryunites in 1890
wis for the "opening of the mints."
McKinley responded, "Let us first open
the mills/ The milis—long closed or
running short noun* under democratic
rule—were opened, hours restored,wages
advaDced, the congealed currents of in
dustrial activity set aOow. As a result,
tbe "opening of the mints" to larger
production came about, with the conse
quence that in the fiscal year just closed
the amount of money coined has been
larger than in any year of American
history. In round numbers the coinage
amounted to about $130,000,000. Of
this $108,000,000 was in gold,and $28,
--000,000 in siiver. The mints have
been worked to their utmost capacity.
They could not have done more, even
under a free silver administration —
would not, in fact, have coined as much,
because a large portion ot the gold
coined would never have come to this
So long as the insurrectionists in the
It hind of Luzon contended with the
American forces in open warfare, with
some semblance of organization and re
sponsible control, and with at least
some crude recognition of the laws gov
erning the conflicts of civilized races,
there was every reason for exercising
toward them the most chivalrous hu
manity and forbearance on the part of
our soldiers in the hour of victory. But
when organization and control disap
pear; when Aguinaldo's former armies
have been, as organizations, practically
annihilated; when there are no vestiges
left of a Tagal governnunt, and no mil
itary authorities to give commands, or
with whom the amenities of civilized
warfare can be exchanged; when, in
short, any forces continuing to appear
agaiust the American troops have degen
erated to mere banditti, devoted to the
purposes of plunder and private ven
geance, the time for gentleness and for
bearance has passed. Our forces are no
longer engaged in war, but in the restor
ation of order in a war swept land. The
existence of guerrillas or banditti cannot
Buy the Danish West Indies.
The question of tbe future of the Dan
ish West Indies is again before the
United States in concrete form. It is
generally known that Denmark wishes
to sell the islands and that Germany
would like to buy them. It ia under
stood that Germany has inquired in an
informal way if the United States has
any objection to such transfer, and that
this government has intimated a prefer
ence that the islands remain under Dan
ish rule. It is obvious, however, that
the United States cannot always persist
in a mere general objection to such
transfer. To require Denmark to keep
something she wishes to part with and
to prevent Germany from buying some
thing which Denmark wishes'to sell is
merely to play the part of the dog in
At first glance it might seem that a
mere transfer of St. Thomas and the
other Danish West Indies from one
European power to another i H a matter
in which the United States has no par
t.cular concern. But the proposed sale
is from a small and non-expanding
power to a great nation with ambitions
and abiHtv in the way o f expansion.
The Monroe doctrine did not seek to
alter the existing facts with regard to
Kuropean possessions in this hemisphere
but merely declared that euch posses
sions should not be increased nor ex
tended This was the attitude of the
L nitedStatP. in the Venezuela case, and
Great Britain was compelled to admit
its correctness. When Germany an ex
panding world power, proposes' to oc
cupp a position at the eastern gate of
the Caribbean sea and the gulf of Mexico
over against the entrance of any I&th'
mian canal, it is evident that the case
is altered. The American people may
well reflect whether it is prudent to per
mit another great European power to
gain a territorial foothold in this hemi
sphere, no matter how friendly are our
present relations with that power.
The safe and manly course ia to ask
Denmark to revive the convention of
1807 and transfer her Went Indian is
lands to the United States. Since our
acquisition of Porto Rico the Danish
West Indies are not worth as much to
us for military reasons as they once
were, but they are etill of value. It is
understood that Denmark asks only
$3,000,000 for the islands now, as
against $7,500,000 for two of them in
1807. Alt the West Indian islands
ought to belong to the United States.
The quarrel between President Johnson
and congress lost us St. Thomas and
the narrow-mindedness of Charles Sum
ner lost us Santo Domingo. To have
possessed either during the war with
Spain would have saved us much anxiety
and expense. Every one now sees that
President Grant was a statesman in ad
vance of his time, and that Sumuer and
the other senators who defeated the
Santo Domingo purchase were the short
sighted "little Americans" of their day.
The people of the Danish West Indies
voted overwhelmingly in favor of annex
ation thirty years ago, and there is no
reason to believe that they would not
now prefer the rule of the United States
to that of any European power. Porto
Rico is ours now and Cuba is under our
control. In buying the Danish West
Indies we would be taking under the
American flag a people who desire its
protection and would exclude the pos
sibility of another strong European
power building up a great naval and
commercial base near our borders. The
United States should acquire the Danish

Hemp Exports from Philippines.
Washington, Jan. I.—Assistant Sec
retary of War Melkeljohn, ii a letter tc
Representative Long of Kansas regard
ing the opening of the hemp ports in the
Philippine islaads, says: "Theestimat
ed exports of hemp from the Philippine
islands for one year of American occu
pation will approximate 100,00 tons, of
which amount 29,000 tons should be
credited to the United States. This
places the estimated exports to the
I nited States for the year of American
occupation at about 17,000 tons less
than the exports of 1897. This is ac
counted for by the fact that there have
been opened for shipment only three
ports of the Philippine islands/ Every
effort has been made by the war depart

future to comply with requests to open

Here is a (etching description of a
military review which we cull from
Mr. Harold Gorsts' book on China:
"At one extremity of the field there
wa3 raised on a slight elevation of the
ground a platform shaded by an im
mense red parasol an<W>rnameuted
with lanterns, streamers and some
large lanterns that did not seem par
ticularly necessary, as the sun was
shining in full splendor. The inspector
extraordinary of the imperial army
and the principal civic and uiilitary
mandarins of the town were on the
platform, seated in armchairs before
little tables covered with tea things
and boxes filled with excellent tobacco.
The moment arrived to begin. A little
culveriu that stood near the platform
was fired off, the military judges cov
ering their ears with their hands to
protect them from the frightful detona
tion, then a yellow flag was hoisted to
the top of one of the forts, the tom
toms sounded a furious charge, and
the soldiers rushed together pellniell,
uttering terrible cries and grouping
themselves around the flag of their
"It is impossible to imagine any
thing more whimsical and comic than
the evolutions of the Chinese soldiers.
They advance, draw back, leap, pirou
ette, cut capers, crouch behind their
shields, us if to watch the enemy, then
jump up again, distribute blows right
and left an^ then run away with all
their might, crying, 'Victory, victory!' "

Mr. Blame hadn't a word to say, but
the Japanese post went to another
man, all the same, and Kimberley
went to Central America.
Another story is told of Kimberley
equally creditable to his nimble wit.
One day he met a young woman who
threw her arms impulsively around his
neck and kissed him. Seeing her mis
take, she drew back and angrily ask
"Aren't you Mr. JonesV"
"N-n-no, madam," replied Kimber

The Prunnncintion Explained.
"There is a family in Virginia," says
Collier's Weekly, "the name of which
is spelled 'Enroughty,' but it is pro
nounced 'Darby.' This fact, familiar
to many Americans, happened to be
told by Miss Hayward at a dinner in
London at which Mr. Kipling was
present, when he broke in: 'You have
saved my reputation by telling that.
You are the first man, woman or child
who could back me up in it.'
"The explanation of the peculiarity is
that the Derbys were an English fami
ly who settled in Virginia in the colo
nial days. One of the sons, the tradi
tional black sheep of the family, was
left a share in his father's will on con
dition that be changed his name. He
changed his written name to En
roughty, but continued to call himself
"On hearing this explanation Mr.
Kipling said, 'I think I will change my
name to Smith.' 'You can spell it
Smith if you like,' was the reply, 'but
It ■will always be pronounced Kipling,'
a remark which caused him to look 'as
unfeignedly pleased as a boy.' "

It isn't the bodily sickness that hurts a

"The battle of Manila was won in
Hongkong harbor," said Admiral Dew
ey to me when I first saw him in May,
1898, and heard him describe the great
fight. Many times since then I heard
him repeat the same sentiment, and
the more the truth of it Is considered
the more light it sheds on his charac
ter. While he was brave, strong,
prompt and decisive in action, he was
thoughtful, cautious, deliberate and
sure in preparation.
Day after day he summoned his cap
tains to discuss all the possibilities
and eventualities of a conflict with
the enemy. He gave them an oppor
tunity to say when, where and how
the battle should be fought. From
junior to senior he called upon them
to express their opinions freely. If
any man had a novel idea, it was given
careful consideration. If it was an old
one with improvements, it was viewed
in all phases.
After the admiral had patiently
aeard his captains and duly interro
gated them, he quietly told them bia
own exact plan of battle and just what
he expected of each man. Whether
this was made up originally out of his
own ideas or from such in union with
the best points advanced by his cap
tains, it was reached only after thor
ough deliberation and was final. —Hon.
John Barrett in Harper's Magazine.
Thert is more Catarrh in this section of th 3
country than all other disease* pat together,
and until the last few years was euppoged to
be incurable. For a great many years doctors
pronounced it a local disease, and prescribed
local remedies, and by constantly failing to
cure with local treatment, pronounced it incur
able. Science has proven catarrh to be a con
stitutional disease, and therefore requires con
stitutional treatment. Hall's Catarrh Cure,
manufactured by F. J. Cheney & Co., Toledo,
Ohio, is the only constitutional cure on the
market. It is taken internally in doses from
10 drops to a teaspoonful. It acts directly on

FOR BLOOD POISON.
DowarQ nf tho flnntfirc' There is not the slightest doubt that the
Duff Ql S Ui 1116 UUutUlO doctors do more harm than good in treating
Contagious Blood Poison; many victims or

The doctors are wholly unable to get rid of
this vile poison, and only attempt to heal up the outward appearance of the
disease —the sores and eruptions. This they do by driving the poison into the
system, and endeavor to keep it shut in with their constant doses of potash
and mercury. The mouth and throat and other delicate parts then break out
into sores, and the fight is continued indefinitely, the drugs doing the system
more damage than the disease itself.
Mr. H. L. Myers, 100 Mulberry St., Newark, N. J., says: "I had spent a
hundred dollars with the doctors, when I realized that dMM^,
they could do me no good. I had large spots all over my ,
body, and these soon broke ort into running sores, and I £^ __ JB
endured all the suffering which this vile disease pro- fcr^^
daces. I decided to try 8. 3. S. as a last resort, and was Br
soon greatly improved. I followed closely your 'Direc- ffc*> *f
tions for Self-Treatment,' and the large splotches on my yA.
chest began to grow paler and smaller, and before long ' Jfe^"' y^S
disappeared entirely. I was soon cured perfectly and my J&B^V /|L
skin has been as clear as glass ever since. I cured my- ||jffTL jVil, Jfl
