Secretary of State Hay is a shrewd

Connecticut avenue, there will be
nearly 100 suites of rooms of varying

The KncI of Republicanism.
For many years it has been obvious
to men of old-fashioned ideals of popu
lar sovereignty that the end of undis
puted republican rule is bad govern
ment and moral extinction. The lat
ter state of a commonwealth thus mis
governed is a bad commentary on
pnblic prosperity to the decent ad
ministration of law and office, if riot
on public intelligence and honesty,
and as a "horrible example" in point
the commonwealth jf Pennsylvania
has long served a melancholy purpose.
This lamentable truth, so patent to
outsiders, is strikingly acknowledged
by no less prominent a republican
than ex-Postmaster General Wana
maker, who declares:
"Pennsylvania is a sunken state. I
mean that literally. It is not on the
surface of the map, not on the map
level with the rest of the country. It
is sunken. Quay's governor and
Quay's creatures in other branches of
the state government make it im
possible to prosecute the violators of
the constitution. There is no attempt
at concealment. The fundamental
law is broken and the civil power is
inert. The gang which rules the
state, from the governor down, makes
the courts seem almost useless. It
buys or otherwise 'fixes' the juries
Xo one who cares to get the facts
will question this."
"And," as the Atlanta Constitution
observes, "Mr. Wanamaker ought to
know. As a .Lot in the republican
Sodom (otherwise Philadelphia.) he
has watched, worked and prayed
and it should be emphatically added,
paid for the coming of a resectable
era of republican administration in
home, state and municipality. From
the foregoing burst of confidence, it
is all too clear that the good and
pious first citizen of Pennsylvania and
Philadelphia has at last relapsed into
the sackcloth and ashes of despair."
At the sane time Viceroy Quay
waxes more insolent with the power
of the spoils. The late election in
the Keystone state contributed to
his political wardrobe a more elabor
ate yellow jacket and a longer pea
cock feather, and while Citizen Wana
maker is lugubriously moralizing,
the easy boss is brimming over with
The revenues of the postal depart
ment are increasing so rapidly that
predictions of 1-cent stamps for let
ters are heard in many quarters.
There is no doubt that the halving of
the present rate would be popular,
but there is some question whether
it would be wise. There is room for
vast improvement in our postal sys
tem, and if there are any surplus rev
enues they could be better employed
for a time at least in bettering the
service. lint one cent letter postage
is sure to come, and as soon as it can
be adopted without too much of a de
ficiency and without neglecting or de
laying the betterment of the service,
it should be provided for.
The present rate (two cents) is as
cheap as postage is furnished else
where. Penny postage was adopted
long ago in England, but an IJnglish
penny is worth about two of our
cents; so that one cent postage here
would be equivalent to - half-penn,
postage in Great Britain.
However, so many things are now
sold in this country for a cent apiece
that the public welcome' to letter
stamps costing one cent each would
be general if it could be made prac
ticable. Khody's New Governor.

The llest Remedy fur Croup.
From the Atchison (Kans.) Daily
Globe: This is the season when the
woman who knows the best remedies
for croup is in demand in every
neighborhood. One of the most terri
ble things in the world is to be awak
ened in the middle of the night by a
whoop from one of the children. The
croup remedies are almost as sure to
be lost, in case of croup, as a revolver
is sure to be lost in case of burglars.
There used to be an old-fashioned
remedy for croup, known as hive syr
up and tolu, but some modern moth
ers say that Chamberlain's Cough
llemedy is better, and does not cost
so much. It causes the patient to
"throw up the phlegm" quicker, and
gives relief in a shorter time. Give
this remedy as soon as the croupy
cough appears and it will prevent the
attack. It never fails and is pleasant
and safe to take. For sale by all

DAILY SHORT STORY
Mrs. Clendenin's Banking.
Mr. and Mrs. Clendenin were a hap
py young couple. Edward Clendenin
was a practical business man, and
Mamie, his wife, was in every sense
feminine. One feminine. trait she pos
sessed to n high degree she could
learn nothing about the practice of
One day Mr. Clendenin was called
away hastily lndetl so hastily that
he had no time to arrange for his wife's
financial needs during his absence.
"Go to the bank." he said, "and get
what you want. Sign my name to the
check. They will understand it. Iianks
are not very particular where they
know all about the parties."
Snatching u hasty kiss and his suit
case, he hurried to a trolley car.
The funds that Mamie had on hand
were all expended within a few days.
Taking out her husband's checkbook.
she drew a check for a hundred dollars.
She did not wish to go to the bank her
self, the day being stormy, and intend
ed sending her coachman. Not know
lug what to write In the space left for
the name of the payee, nf(,er much de
liberation she concluded to keep on the
safe side by leaving it blank. Then she
signed her husband's name to it and.
calling Patrick, told him to go to the
bank and draw the money. I'atrick
did as he was told, but returned with
"The man at the winder, ma'am, says
to put my name to it. Hut if ye do Oi'll
have to be idintyflod."
"What's identified mean?"
"Well, Oi think, ma'am, some one
will have to tell 'em that Oi'm mesilf."
"How provoking! I don't know any
lody to do that."
"Iiut he says if ye'll write 'bearer'
in it he'll pay anyway."
This appearing to be the easiest way
out of it, Mrs. Clendenin inserted the
word "licarer," and I'atrick made an
other visit to the bank and returned
with the money.
It was alMiut a week, after this that
Mrs. Clendenin while shopping noticed
a lu-m who seemed to be keeping a pair
of very sharp eyes on her. He followed
her from shop to shop, and when she
got home she found him there waiting
"Madam," he said. "I tell fortunes by
menus of the handwriting of the sub
"I don't care to have niy fortune
told," said Mrs. Clendenin.
The man was insistent, and in the
end the lady, to get rid of him, gave
him a specimen of her handwriting.
After securing this he did not seem es
pecially anxious to tell her fortune,
and as she did not urge him he retired,
saying that he would study the case.
The next day Edward Clendenin re
ceived the following telegram:
Return at once. Am In great trouble.
As soon as Mr. Clendenin could re
cover from the shock he took a train,
telegraphing from the station that he
would be at home the next day. When
he drove up to his house at a rapid
pace, threw open the cab door and
rushed into his home, he found his wife
a prisoner in charge of the man who
had called on her for a specimen of her
"Oh, Edward. I'm arrested!" moaned
the wife, throwiDg her arms about her
"What for?" cried Edward, aghast.
"Tell him," 6he said to the man who
"I am sorry to inform you, sir, that
I have felt it my duty to arrest your
wife for forgery. I, however, permit
ted her to remain here till your re
turn." "Forgery! What forgery?"
"She has forged the name of Edward
Clendenin to a check on the Manufac
"I am Edward Clendenin."
"What! You Edward Clendenin? I
didn't know that you were the man
whose name was forged. Then, sir,
your wife has forged your name."
"Have you the cheek with you?"
The detective produced a bundle of
papers, from which he took the check
"Mamie," said Edward after glanc
ing at the signature, "why the dickens
didn't you sign It in your own hand
writing?" "Why, I thought I ?oust make it as
much like your signature as iossible."
The two men looked at each other.
Deference on the part of the detective
kept his features straight, but when
the husband's face broke into n morti
fied smile he Joined. The smiles of
both became u broad laugh.
"Go upstairs, my dear." said Edward.
"I think I can bribe this gentleman to
release you from arrest."
"Now, tell me," said Clendenin, tak
ing the detective to a sideloard, "how
the bank came to press such a case."
"The bank places all its law busi
ness, criminal and civil, in the hands
of Perkins & Iamb, attorneys.- I am
their detective. They gave me the
check, with directions to hunt up the
person who drew It. I traced it to
your wife, not knowing her to be j our
wife. I got a specimen of her hand
writing, compared it with the body
of the check and knew it to be hers.
The officers of the bank as yet know
nothing about the matter. Since Mrs.
Clendenin is a refined lady, I gave her
permission to stay at home till your
return. Fortunately no charge has
been made against her, and the matter
may be dropped without trouble."
Mr. Clendenin received a polite note
of apology from the president of the
bank, giving the same explanation as
the detective had furnished. Mr. Clen
denin, finding that he could not go into
the bank without seeing a smile on
the face of every employee, finally de
sisted and now uses a messenger for
