An exchange says Admiral Dewey
remains about the only prominent
hero of the late war who has not
found it necessary to scrap with his
superiors or subordinates. He has
kept his dignity and has not made a
single mistake all the way through.
As the administration seems to have
placed the responsibility for the es
tablishtnent and maintenance of the
rights of the United States in the
Philippines entirely in the hands of
Gen. Otis, the opportunity for that
officer to make or brake himself is
apparently at band.

The successor to the late Senator

bad occurred during the recent ses

proceeded in joint assembly to elect a

'one is net a very careful observer of
the trend of public sentiment if be
failed to discover that the sentiment in
favor of a policy which looks ultimate
ly te an independent popular govern
ment by the people of the islands,
guaranteed by this govarnment. is
gaining ground. That is the proposed
policy toward Cuba, which is near at
hand, and why should it not be for the
Philippines, far away?"
With the death of Senator Justin S.
Morrill the title, "father of the sen
ate," descends upon William B. Alli
son, of Iowa. The latter is nearly 70
years of age, and has seen continuous
service in the senate since March 4,
1873 nearly 26 years. Senator Alli-
' son, whose home is in Dubuque, was
born in Perry. O.. and was educated
in the Western Reserve college of that
state. He removed to Iowa when 28
years of age, and seven years later
began organizing volunteers for sup
pression of the rebellion. He served
on the governor's staff and took an
active part in public life, being elected
representative in the Thirty-eighth.
Thirty-ninth, Fortieth and Forty-first
congresses, and was finally chosen to
succeed James Harlan in the senate.
Senator Allison has always taken an
active part in the doings of the sen
ate, being chairman of the appropria
tions committee and a member of the
. committee on finance, congressional
library, and geological survey.
Mr. Bryaa and tbe Flag.
New York World: In his speech
at Omaha, Mr. Bryan, who volunteerd
his services to defend our flag in the
late war, made a reply both apt and
adroit to Mr. McKinley's famous ques
tion. "Who will haul down the flag?"
The flag," said Mr. Bryan, "is a
national emblem and is obedient to
the national will. It was made for
tbe people, m t u people for tho flag.
When the American people want the
tl&X raised, they raise it; when they
want . it hauled down, they haul it
The people of this country hare not
vet decreed that their flag shall go up
In all of tbe ceded or relinquished
colonies of Spain never to come down.
The senate first, and congress after
ward, and tbe people ultimately, in I
the next presidential election, are to
pass on this question.
Mr. Brvan nointed oat that
"The flag was raised upon Canadian
sou during the war of 1812, and it
was hauled down when peace was re'
stored. The flag was planted upon
Chapultepec during the war with
Mexico, and it was hauled down when
the war was over."
He might have added that May 13
1805, we captured Derne, Tripoli, and
raised the American flair there, only
to haul it down June 3.
He might have added that March
17, 1812, we seized Amelia island and
Fernandina, Fla., then Spanish, raised
our flag and established a custom
house there, only to abolish the cus
tom house, haul down the flag and
restore the territory to Spain May 16,
He might have added that April 6,
1818, that combative and unconquer
able flag-defender, Andrew Jackson,
took St. Marks, in Spanish Florida,
and that a short time afterward we
hauled down our flag and withdrew.
He might have added that during
the Columbian rebellion Admiral
Jouett raised our flag en the Isthmus
of Panama and treated the country as
temporarily American, only to haul
down our flag and turn the territory
over to the Columbian government as
soon as it got upon its feet.
15 ut Air. isryan bad an instance and
a precedent neht at hand. "The
morning papers announce." he said.
that Gen. Lee ordered the flag hauled
down in Cuba yesterday because it was
raised too soon" alluding to the "too
previous" action of Russell Harrison
in raising the flag over one of the forts
near Havana. "The flag M ill be raised
in Cuba again on Jan. 1," said Mr.
Bryan, but the president declares in
his message that it will be hauled
down as soon as a stable government
Not even the president will deny the
accuracy oi the aptness of this asser
tion, nor will he and his supporters
find it easy to escape the logic of Mr.
Bryan's question, "Who will deny
to the people the right to haul down
the flag in the Philippines if they de
sire when a stable roverntnent is es
There is something more than elo
quent rhetoric there is historic and
fundamental truth in Mr. Bryan's
"Our flag stands for an indissoluble
union of indestructible states. Every
state is represented by a star and
every territory sees in the constitution
a star of hope that will some day take
its place in the constellation. The
mission of that flag is to float, not
over a conglomeration of common
wealths, but over 'The Land of the
Free and the Home of the Brave,' and
to that mission it must remain forever
true, foreer true."
Is there not a truer and higher pa
triotism in this appeal to the intellect
and conscience oi the country than
was expressed in the president's ques'
tion directed to the "hurrah"' element
in an unthinking mob? "Who will
haul down that flag?"

A Little Trick That la Worked In
"Xli ere was a time curl tbat not so
very long ago," remarked an old time
puller in, "when almost every other
Etoro in Baxter street was a 'fence,' or
pretended to ba, in order to give custom
ers tbe idea that thoy were gettiuggcod
bargains. The clerk who took a hesitat
ing customer aside and whispered
'fence' was generally sure of a sale.
There are no genuine 'fences' in Easter
street now, tecau e clothing, shoes and
bats are so cheap, but some of the stores
still pretend to sell stolen goods.
"When a customer in one of these
stores has looked everything over in tbe
shop and hasn't made a purchase, the
salesman tells bim that be has a little
'fence down stairs and urges upon him
the necessity of keeping it quiet on ac
count of the police. Of course tbe cus
tomer won't say a word. So down stairs
they go to the alleged 'fence, ' which gen
erally proves to be a big trunk packed
"While shewing the contents of the
trunk the salesman keeps np a running
yarn about tbe famous criminals who
brought tbe goods to - .re.
"Finally, after showing u lot of stuff
of tbe same quality and pattern the
customer refused to buy up stairs, tbe
salesman gets bim to try on something,
and as quality, workmanship and per
fect t always go with 'fence goods,
there is a sale made. This fake 'fence'
answers sale purposes as wen as tne

That the rettauraut business in Berlin
is a paying one, if the location chosen
be a good one, the restaurant of the zoo
logical gardens here shows. For a num
ber of years it '.vas leased by a man who
understood about as much of the busi
ness as the man ia the moon. Yet he
became wealthy within a few years and
retired for good to live on the interest
of bis money. There were days in sum
mer when bo sold 1,000 kegs of beer.
besides some 20,000 cups of coffee and
50,000 sandwiches, and as prices are
high there he must have mado thousands
of dollars in n single day.
Fortunately for the pnblio, another
caterer now supplies the hungry and
thirsty sightseers at the zoological gar
dens, a man with a good reputation, and
be pays twice tho rent for the restau
rant buildings, too viz, 100,000 marks
per annum, besides spending by the
terms of bis contract a matter of almost
500, 000 marks for improvements. Yet it
is probable that he, teo, will retire at
the end of his term with a fortune.
There are many instances of this kind
in Berlin. One of the finest and most
highly priced restaurants on Cnter dan
Linden recently sold its good will for a
matter of 1.00O.C0O marks. Tho owuer
