Wednesday, June 6.
Tiir. house anti-trust bill was
buried in committee on the ere of ad
journment of congress. How in the
world conld that bare happened?
The Paris exposition has no mid
way. Hence Chicago considers the
whole thing a failure. It ia reasona
ble to suppose that Moline is in full
accord with Chicago in this respect.
The situation in China has become
an alarming international juestion,
and the republic, whose founders said
it snonld be kept free from entangling
alliances is in tne middle of the mud
dle. The Turkish admiral now in Wash
ington was marrelously pleased at
t lie imposing parade of the Mystic
Shriners in that city Ja9t week and
modestly supposed that the entire
affair was gotten up in bis honor.
Unless Mark Ilanna orders Presi
dent McKinley to change his mind
again the administration will from
present indications accept the candi
dacy of Congressman J. P. Dollirer,
of Iowa, for the rice presidential nom
ination. Jt'ixiK Cahkoll C. Boii;s, of
Wayne county, will succeed to the
office of chief justice of the supreme
court of Illinois. This comes by a
custom, very appropriate, in which
the honor is passed along according
to seniority of those who hare not
enjoyed the honor.
WimoLT making any hints, P. M.
Miisstr, of Muscatine, has done about
the right thing to perpetuate his name
n the community in which he made
his start in donating $30,000 for a
public library in that city. At least
he has prerented his city from having
to loo to some out of town rich man
to do the handsome in this line.
The administration of justice in
Canada is conducted with dispatch. It
is but a short time ago that a plot was
discorered to blow up a Welland ca
nal lock. Three men were promptly
arrested, charged with the conspiracy
and yesterday all three were sentenced
to life imprisonment, the jury requir
ing but fire minutes for consideration
uf the case.
It is the New York Journal, which
supported Mr. Bryan in 1896 and is
supporting him now, and whose edi
tor, W. K. Hear9t, is president of the
national league of democratic clubs,
that has put the machinery of the law
in operation against the ice trust.
While men professing to be demo
crats are suspected of being identifi d
with the trust, democrats are endeav
oring to destroy it.
New YouKand Maryland democrats
yesterday while eliminating the
money issues from their state plat
form declared unequivocally against
those evils that have developed under
the existing national administration,
nf combinations against the masses
and of an imperialistic form of gov
ernment. Doth Maryland and New
York will send delegations of old line
democrats to Kansas City solid for
Standard Oil Degeneracy.
Williams college, of Williamston,
Mass., has certainly not received any
of the beniticent dispensations of
Proridence from John L). Rockefeller,
known as "honest dollars." This is
to be inferred from the remarks of Dr.
Bascus. who thus alludes to the Stan
dard Oil gang:
"1 suppose that in the last 30 years
the Standard Oil company has done
more mischief in this country than all
the thieres, pickpockets and burglars.
They have wrongfully transferred
more money than all these. The
opinion of the American people has
leen altered by the doings of this
company, which has thoroughly de
bauched us. That Rockefeller is a good
Baptist brother is the damnation of it
all. And we allow such a man to endow
a theological university! This man
has stripped family after family and
man after man of his livelihood."
The Filipinos who expected on the
arrival of the new Philippines com
mission in Manila an announcement
of the policy which the United States
proposes toadopt toward the islands
have been disappointed. Judge Taft
made no such announcement. In a
talk of considerable length, indepen
dence and self-government for the
islands were never once mentioned.
The American policy is still shrouded
in that focreev which caused the
Philippine insurrection. This, as the;
St. Louis Republic calls to mind, is
the same policy of silence which
proved so disappointing to the Fili
pinos after the close of the Spanish I
war. They are required to place allj
their reliance on the justice and gen
erosity of the United States, with
no definite assurance of fair
treatment. This is calculated to
make the Filipinos suspicious of the
good intentions of the United States.
The Philippines are far removed from
the United States and the Filipinos do
not know either the power or the
principles of this government. The
attitude assumed toward the Fili
pinos at the outset by the new
Philippines commission does much to
confirm the charge which has been
repeatedly made that had the Filipi
nos been treated with frankness by
the administration, the insurrection,
which gires no sign of a present end
ing, would nerer hare begun.
Meaning; of "Boxers."
That such confusion exists as to
precisely who and what the Chinese
"Boxers" are is probably due to the
rapidity and frequency with which
the native secret societies in China
change their names when they de
sire to continue their organization
and purposes free from the surveil
lance of the government. When at
last an edict of suppression is issued
the society simply takes a new title
and goes on as if nothing had hap
pened. The society of "Boxers," says the
Philadelphia Times, is supposed to
number eleven millions of men. It
was originally a sort of law and or
der league, organized for protection
against the bandits, with which the
province of Shan-Tung was invested.
Its name was then Ta Tao Hwei,
which means "The Society of the
Great Sword." It is a law and order
league gone wrong. As this society
became more powerful, many dishon
est and designing persons entered it,
and in numerous' cases directed its
efforts against personal enemies,
whom they represented to be bandits
and lawless persons. Some of these
victims, looking for help from the
persecutions of the Great Sword so
ciety, turned to the Christian mis
sionaries, especially, it is said, the
German Catholics." They professed
conrersion, and the missionaries
sought to protect them. A series of
outrages on Christians followed until,
last October, the Christian nations
forced the gorernment to send a force
against the Great Swords. There
was a battle, followed by the report
to the gorernor of Shan-Tung that
the so-called rebels were honest coun
Then the Great Sword society dis
appeared, by edict, and in its place
sprang ready-made the "Universal
Society of Boxers," with the old or
ganization and purposes and with the
added idea of fighting all foreign in
fluence missionary or otherwise
and of having the government help it.
The operations of the society and the
outrages committed by it have since
continued, and have constantly be
The Chinese name for the society is

As to the increased influence of
Russia at Pekin it has been ex
plained by pointing out that Russia
declined to join the other powers In
making representations to the Pekin
government with respect to the Boxer
morement, basing her refusal upon
the fact that she is an Asiatic power.

Yes, August Flower still has the
largest sale of any medicine in the
civilized world. Your mothers and
grandmothers never thought of using
anything else for indigestion or bil
iousness. Doctors were scarce, and
they seldom heard of appendicitis,
nervous prostration or heart failure,
etc. They used August Flow
er to clean out the -system and stop
fermentation of undigested food, reg
ulate the action of the liver, stimulate
the nervous and organic action of the
system, and that is all they took when
feeling dull and bad with headaches
and other aches. You only need a

GOOD TASTE IN DRESS.
Good taste in dress is largely a
matter of eduoati ,u, and no lady can
afford to neglect this, no matter what
her station in life may be. A dress
should accord with reason and good
judgment, bearing in mind that there
ia such a thing -s beautr of outline
of form that should be constantly
sought for and used so as to bring
out the lesults an artist would desire
and appreciate. In no other way
could these results be obtained, ex
cept by a careful education and train
ing in such matters.
There have been many attempts
made to get a correct system whereby,
all kinds of clothing could be cut for
general wear. There have been paper
charts, models, scales, folding and
sliding devices of every conceivable
kind, but none was successful.
There was no system for general oso
that could cut anything beyond a
plain waist lining and a plain sleeve
until the invention of the Diamond
Garment Cutter, which was the tirst.
and is today the only practical and
successful method of cutting and fit
ting all kinds of garments worn. And
again, there is not an article in
America that has beeu introduced
into family use that gives as much
satisfaction, saves more time, trouble
and annoyance, and what is better
still money than the Diamond Gar
