The destruction of the mosquito is or

Si nt him beside smashing him while
he hs actually engaged in the pursuit or
his calling. He can be reached through'
drains, kerosene and the voracious gold.
fish. His ultimate destruction is merely
a question of time and intelligence.
With the opening of the summer weath
er the mosquito will again make his ap
pearance. In myriads he will swoop
down on the entire animal creation on this
continent, and he will maintain his activ
ity until the rivers freeze up. The time
to begin the anti-mosquito crusade Is
now. If the residents of any locality want
to rid themselves of this pest they have it
in their power to do so with a very small
expenditure of either labor or money.
Public officials can lend a hand. The least
expensive, as well as the slowest, al
though ultimately the moat effective of
the remedies, is the stocking of all
waters in regions infested by mosquitoes
with those species of fish, like the gold
fish and the sunfish, and the top-min
nows, which consume the larvae of the
mosquito. Then the use of the cheaper
grades of oil for use on the more or less
stagnant pools in which these creatures
have their breeding places will be found
quite effective, without involving any
great expenditure. Drainage, of course, is
a measure which will be adopted only
in pursuance of mure extended purposes;
but the other two remedies, intelligently
and widely pursued, will in time wipe the
mosquito out of general existence.
Those who desire to learn the most er
fective modes of procedure can readily do
.-.> by consulting some good book on the
subject. While the discovery of the dt-ath
dealing tendencies of the mosquito is of
very recent origin, the literature on the
uubji ct of his destruction has already
reached quite comfortable proportions.
Chauncey Depew in the role of the
"silent man of the senate is a picture
to provoke more hilarity than any of his
stories or jokes.
WIIKRE THli TAXES Jlf.A'7,
The Globe reproduces here a very
succinct statement regarding Mayor Dor
an's administration, made by Mr. J. C.
Michael on Friday evening last at the
great business men's meeting in support
of Mayor Smith's candidacy for re-elec
tion, it is as follows:
•'Mayor cardinal policy had
been to keep the fire board bi-partisan
in its make-up. Doran introduced poli
tics thcic to oust the best chief St. Paul
ever had, and who, thanks to Republicans
appointed by Mayor Smith, has been re
instated. He Introduced politics in the
police department to turn out O'Connor
and Clark for Getchell and "Chippy"
Davis; made "Reddy" Griffin premier and
put Nick Pottgleser on the wool sack.
He brought about a condition of law
leseßess that made it unsafe for women
even in the quiet Seventh ward to be out
of doors after night. The people of St.
Paul have not drunk so deeply of for
getlulness that they will return to their
experience of two, four and eight years
ago."
Before our Republican friends go a
wool-gathering with McCardy on the sub
ject of Increased taxes under Democratic
administrations, they ought to give seri
ous considerations to such statements as
the foregoing. They ought to show, if
they can, that they are liot true, or else
satisfy the voting public that F. U. Doran
1-as reformed in his political standards,
and will not reproduce himself, if he Is
elected again.
McCardy is a pretty shrewd politician.
It is his scheme, in order to save his own
official hide, to divert attention from the
infamous record left by Doran's admin
istration by juggling his figures as an
East Indian fakir might juggle with the
implements of his particular trade. But
the juggler in this case will tind before
half of the coming four weeks has ex
pired that he will have his hands quite
full in trying to save himself from the
defeat which is already accepted as In
evitable in the case of Doran.
The Republican opposition must face
Doran's record as mayor. They will not
be permitted to get away from it. No
howling dervish oratory of the Reese
variety, and no mathematical trickster
ing, such as McCardy has suggested as
the safest resort of his companions, will
meet the case.
From and including June, IS9G, to and
including May, 1898, Mr. Frank B. Doran
was mayor of St. Paul, a.s the nominee
of the Republican party. During that time
crimes of violence were of daily occur
rence, the police were in complicity with
criminals of every kind, the business
thoroughfares were infested by disorderly
ri sorts, conducted in open and flagrant
violation of public peace and decency,
robberies and burglaries were so com
mon that the public ceased to notice all
but the most serious of them. Corruption
in office was rewarded by official promo
tion by the mayor himself, as Instanced In
the case of the man Franklin, whom he
made school commissioner, and a no
torious gambler, maintaining a known re
sort of thieves through capital supplied
by officers of Doran's police administra
tion, was throughout Mr. Doran's term
popularly referred to as the acting mayor
of St. Paul.
Here are some of the conditions which
prevailed during p. B. Dorans incum
bency of the office of mayor. Mr. Michael
has brirty and forcibly outlined them.
The Globe but repeats the outline in
other language.
It was to maintain this state of things
that the taxpayers of St. Paril paid into
the city treasury in taxes the sum of i-7,
--807.765.12. It is to reproduce the same state
of things that they are now asked to pay
an equal or even a greater amount.
Surely there is a tax Issue in this cam
paign; but it Is not the one which our
official wizard points out.
ÜBMISG'S VIiOSPKCTS BRIGHT,
Indiana Democrats, always in the fore
frcnt of progress political, have done
something to cause comment again. Del
egates to the congressional convention of
the Thirteenth district, reasoning appar
ently from the Tillman-McLaurin incident
in the senate, have placed in nomination
a man whose chief claim to distinction
stems to be that he was long- a successful
quarterback in a football team. Mr.
Ikring-for such is his name, with a
piscatorial flavor-does not promise to
swoop down on "Washington with a valise
full of burden for the Congressional Rec
ord, but he goes there>-how could he be
defeated—with his brawn developed to the
"pink of condition," ready to get into the
g-ame in the event of an outbreak of the
fire-eaters, whether they be from South
Carolina or Colorado.
Herlcg will be a legislative novelty, but

he will be handy as a repressive agency.
If there is somebody around who can use
recalcitrant mgmker? ?>$ $ football the
recalcitrant members will be good. Her
ing might also make himself doubly use
ful by dcing the work of two or three
sergeants-at-arms and thus save the na-
tion a lot of money paid men to keep
order who do not keep it. Hering has a
distinctly blazed future right before him.
Will he move straight ahead or dodge?
Massachusetts might do much worss
than erect a monument to Maj. Gen. Ben
jamin F. Butler. His services for his
country were never withheld in time of
need. He was one of the strong, reso
lute characters of the state.
MECKUITIAG OVER hUSBK.
The Globe sincerely hopes it may be
conclusively proven that England has not
virtually maintained a recruiting station
at Chalmette, near Xew Orleans. At the
very best the attitude of this country,
under the direction of Republican poli
ticians, has been biased in favor of the
kingdom of England and against the re
publics of South Africa.
Charges have been specifically made by
representatives of the Boors that the
United States government was violating
the law of neutrality by permitting Eng
lish agents to buy mules and horses for
the British army In South Africa and ship
them direct from a port of the United
States to their destination. This n
was disputed, the contention being fhat
mules and horses are not munitions of
war.
Now the report is received that thou
sands of mule teem have been shipped from
Chalmotte to South Africa and either
coaxed or coerced into the British aim;..
With each, shipload of animals several
tlrms tli" necessary number of men would
be sent, ostensibly for the purpose of
caring for tlu- animals. Once in South
Africa, the return transportation prom
ised these men would not be produced,
and they would be coerced into the army
service.
It is alleged that the governor "of
Louisiana ha.s investigated these reports
and found much to support the truthful
ness of the claims. At last the Repub
lican leaders at Washington have been
driven into action and promise a thorough
investigation.
The claim is made by the Boer friends
that the English have one general, two
colonels and sixty captains in this coun
try, all actively engaged in securing ani
mals and men for the English service in
South Africa, and that they have what
amounts to an English camp on Ameri
can territory at Chalmette. Should this
claim be established it will show to what
extent the Republican politicians have
involved the United States in their desire
to aid the British empire to destroy two
struggling republics.
As the time for repairing political
fences comes on the prospect of congress
adjourning grows better.
Y. M. C. A. ATHI.KTIC ITXHIBITIO.V.
That is a most generous offer which a
wealthy citizen of St. Paul makes the
Y. M. C. A. to pay $1 for every dollar
which the association raises at the an.
nual athletic exhibition to be given at
the Auditorium Tuesday evening next.
Every man, woman and child in the- city
should befriend the association at least
to the extent of one ticket for the exhibi
tion when it realized that this 50 cents
puts $1 into the Y. M. C. A. treasury.
Every season for four years the Y. M.
C. A. has been furnishing the city with
a series of ten exceptionally fine concerts
and lectures' at prices so iow as to pre
clude hope of large profit. Now for the
first time it presents to the public a beau
tiful and novel benefit entertainment un
der circumstances that insure double
financial benefits. Besides, the exhibition
will delight every one who attends, aa
the Y. M. C. A. has never offered any
thing except genuine, first-class attrac
tions, and has its reputation at stake.
The Globe hopes there will be gen
eral observance of arbor day, proclaimed
by Gov. Van Sant to be April 19. A tree
for every inhabitant of the state would
mean an incalculable benefit within the
next twenty years.
A POSTAL CVMSJBNCT.
During the last congress a measure
was introduced designed to remove the
terrible inconvenience which is involved
to the business community in the trans
mission of small amounts through the
mail. That body, however, passed away
without any action being taken on the
subject, notwithstanding that business
men in every community united in ex
pressing their anxiety to secure some
scheme which would put an end to the
evil mentioned.
A similar measure has been introduced
in both houses during- the present session.
It probably represents the former meas
ure with some additions made with a view
to its perfection. Stated in brief, ■ the
measure proposes to dispense with the
present postal order system through the
issuance of a form of postal currency.
It njovides that all $1, $2 and $5 bills
hereafter issued shall contain blank
spaces on the face of them, which may
be filled in when it is designed to send
them through the mail by inserting the
name of the proposed payee, his city and
state. A 2-cent stamp is thereupon af
fixed, and the name of the sender writ
ten across the face of the-bill. When
the bill is received it may be redeemed
on presentation to any bank, and it is
at once surrendered and another bill of
the same denomination issued in its
stead. Fractional currency oi" the same
character would, under the provisions of
the bill, be also issued for the same
purpose. *
In this way it is proposed to do away
with a grievous public inconvenience in
volved in the necessity of sender and re
ceiver alike going to the postoffice in
order to affect the transmission of a
small amount of money.
Every publisher has it brought home to
him every day what a business discom
fort is involved in the absence of some
rational substitute for the present sys
tem, and the Publishers' association hag
brought the attention of congress to the
great need in which its members stand
of "some such relief. Merchants find their
mail order business increasing every day
without any available means of enabling
their customers to transact the amount
oi their billa withooV being obliged to go
to the postoffide! ?-""~
If the measure above outlined is not
thought by eongr^M to be the best that
can be devised the ftuty imposed on that
body is urgent and imperative at least
that some bettfcr sckame shall be devised
and shall be embodied in law, for the re
iief of both the- business communities
of the country and the individual citi
zens.

through untold years of business and pj

As to what has caused the beaming

is following suit. And m the last half
of this sentence there may be a hint. Mr.
Depew, widower, was as gay as a lark;
Mr. Depew, ben< diet, is melancholy.,
wordless, apparently baffled. Can it be
thai in a battle of talk the woman has
triumphed? Can ii be that in crossing
swords with Mrs. Deyew she has met his
logic with such a volume of words as tv
send him in defeat from nis own hearth
stone? At any rate, whatever has hap
pened the debate is 'over. If the woman
has had the last word, has broken his
heart and driv.ni his intellect into a
chaotic whirl, ,pone'pther than she is a.
competent witness, and the wife cannot
testify in a ca.-e involving the husband.

The aftermath of the visit of Prince
Henry to this country is quite amus
ing. All those who met him are now ex
plaining to-tli.ir less fortunate neighbors
that he "wasn't much." while the per
sons who did not meet him are rising to
state that they never <lid care much for
princes. We are intensely democratic in
this country until a title appears over the
horizon, then well, let if go- its a pain
ful subject. The prince is gone and the
echqe« of "hoch der kaiser- are
away. But for every cup of lea that
Henry drank on these hospitable shores,
the pour man will have to return dinners
ami wine, for ihi latest news is that all
those distinguished persons In- New York
and other places who entertained him are
going over this summer in their yachts to
return his visit. \\e wonder wh
Henrj and ins Imperial brother expect l
quite such quick «ctlon on r< turn visits.
However) there were some Philadelphia
folk among his lusts, and if they btar
out their reputation the prince maj al
ways have something coming in the mat
ter of \isiis.
Speaking of Henry reminds one of Stra.
Astor and that unfortunate interview in
which it is claimed she made the dis- j
tressing remark that no man witho
college education could be a gentleman.
of the "u:ie:. ct Infants' iem
spitefully that Mrs. Astor was ptqm ,
cause she did not entertain the prince.
Why should she? quoth Mrs. Astor. Why
shouldn't sli*-'.' was what she meani
the spiteful ones. Mrs. Astir was a Will
ing, of Philadelphia, and »ne mean woman
said she thought she must lie. But the
prince: Oh, the prince ha I a lovely time:
it was the ftrst chance he ev-»r had to
gel from under the shadow of hia
brother's wing and see a great city by

been made about hia lntimacj with cur

The bracing qualities of Minnesota air
are well known, but seldom has its ef

a songstress who came out of the East «
few days ago for the purpose of showing
us the real thing in sopranos. She came
in the morning, the air began to get in its
work by noon, and by night, although she :
was anxious to please and ready to sing,
her manager stated that the rarefied at
mosphere has affected her throat, and he
thought It best not to risk it. Singers arc

Ft has come with a genuine sjiock to
many persons to find that Cecil Rhodes
could die like other people. It was sup
l... sed in some quarters that he lived a
charmed life, and would be given time to
carry out his immense schemes for the
federation of South Africa into British
states. Rhodes was an imperialist of the
Imperialists; he believed In the divine
right of England to conquer weaker na
tions, and he died with the vision before
his eyes of a handful of stout-hearted
burghers resisting thai right and retarding
his plans. Perhaps he died of that vision.
Many have attempted to eulogise Rhodes,.
and undoubtedly ho had his softer side,
and possibly many a heart has been
warmed by his kindness and generosity.
but—it never got into the papers how
ever, we all know that unheralded charity
Is the best. The most pathetic eulogy
was that of his friend, Lord Grey, who
took the apologetic tone: "lie meant
well; he was not as black as he was
painted," but he made one unfortunate
remark. "Rhodes' large financial interests
in Africa," he said, "gave him a moral
right to bring on revolutions. Lord Grey
will be given a back seat If he persists in
disclosing the British policy. The true
reason of. Rhodes', real failure in tne
midst of apparent success was that he
was a woman-hater. No man can be
really great if ho scorns the sex that gave
him his start in life.

The tendency of club work for women
is too much toward the separation of the
sexes. Club women go to women's meet

advice and generally live by women un
til they become narrow and see the world
too much from a woman's standpoint.
The same fault may be found with a man

NEW YORK, Feb. J. Pierpont Mor
gan has at last-acquired all the property
needed for the library and art garden he
has been planning for some time as an
addition to his residence on Thirty-sixth
street.
His latest purchase is a lot on East
Thirty-sixth street, and gives Mr. Mor
gan now the entire block on the north
side of Thirty-sixth street between Mad
ison and Park avenues.
It is understood that Mr. Morgan's plans
for the proposed library and art gallery
are elaborate, and that work upon them
will begin Boon after he returns from his
proposed trip to Europe.
The plans include a fairyland garden.
Hold Burßlurs Steal Bell—
The bell of the Parkville Congregational
church, at Eighth avenue and Eastern j
parkway, which weighed 1,000 pounds and
cost $600, laboriously collected by the pas
tor. Rev. M. P. Welcher, has been stolen.
It had recently arrived from a foundry
in Baltimore and was to have been placed
in the belfry this week. It disappeared
during the night. Nothing less than a
cart and six burglars could have moved It.
When last seen it rested upon two huge
planks directly in front of the door of the
church. Nobody had thought to chain :t
to the edifice. They would have as soon
thought of chaining the church organ,
but they now regret that a policeman
was not chained in the vicinity.
Tries to liny St. Paul's Site-
An offer of Ja.OOO.OOb has been made by
a European syndicate for the site of St.

yard. The parcel occupies the block
bounded by Broadway, Church. Fulton
and Vesey streets, and wouid be a bargain
at the price named, as it would supply
as excellent sits for a skyscraper oflioe
