Coi.onki. Clakkson explains, says the

the matter so to Ret democrats out of
office is because the country voted last
November to have republicans in office.
If he had been keeping posted on things
about that time he might have discovered
that the party indorsed at the ballot box
was plastered with pledges not to turn
out office holders except for cause, and
to make fitness the chief test of appoint

There is only one way to cure deafness,
and that is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an inflamed con
dition of the mucus lining of the Eustach
ian tube. When this tube gets inflamed
yon have a rumbling sound or imperfect
hearing, and when it is entirely closed
deafness is the result, and unless the in
flammation oam Ite taken out and this
tube restored to its normal condition,
hearing will be destroyed forever; nine
cases out of ten are caused by catarrh,
which is nothing but an inflamed condi
tion of the mucus surfaces.
We will give one hundred dollars for

TROUBLE WITH PORTUGAL.
A Little War Clonit Arising ou the
Horizon of Britain.
London, July 1. Some time ago the
Portugese government gave English capital
ists a concession to build a railway into
Africa at Delagoa bay. Recently Portugal,
iu the interest of certain rich Boers, it is
said, revoked that concession on the ground
that the road was not built in the specified
t.me, a claim that is purely fictitious. Ne
gotiations regarding the matter have been
going on for soma days, and the British
government is not at all inclined to submit
to the confiscation of its subject's money.
Portugal Must Hack Down.
The cabinet, Saturday, discussed the
trouble and formulated a sharp note to
Portugal. Lord Salisbury will not submit
mildly to the high-handed manner in which
Portugal has undertaken to deal with British
capitalists, and he is determined to make
trouble for that kingdom unless her minis
ters back down squarely from the position
they assumed in the IMagoa bay railway
matter. It is significant that two of the
great London dailies have already notified a
number of their correspondents to prepare
for foreign service. It is now rumored that
the Portuguese government will agree to
submit the question to arbi (ration.

by Capt. Kellogs; Pauncefote'a Invest

Washington City, July 1. The president
beard a sermon that was all about politics
yesterday morning. He occupied bis own
pew at the Church of the Covenant Dr.
Scott, his father-in-law, was the only othe.
memlier of the White House family present.
"Heavenly Citizenship" was the subject of
tho discourse of the Rov. Dr. Hamlin, pastor
of the church. The text was the 20th verse
of the iii. chapter of Paul's Epistle to the
I'hillippians: "For our conversation is in
Heaven, from whence also we look for the
Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ," and he in
terpreted the word "conversation" as "poli
tics." The Word Misapplied.
There is probably no word in the lan
guage, be said, that has been so detiauched
as this word "politics." Its derivation is no
ble, meaning whatever concern the well-being
of a city. It is the art and science of
human government. Contrast with this the
current meaning of the word. We actually
use it to distinguish the manoeuvres of par
ties in their contests for the control of the
government From a "statesmanship" which
should be synonymous with it, tho term pol
itics has cnine to mean the art of securing
" Politician" and "Statesman." aH
It should he as high praise to call a man a
"politician" a3 to call him a "statesman,"
but men wink when they use the former
term and raise their bats when they use the
latter. It sounds reasonable and seems prac
tical that Christian men should carry the
principles of the gospel into their politics.
The gospel requires that in our relations with
our fellow men we should be unselfish, doing
to others as we would have them do to us.
Is not that the very essence of statesmanship
to do equal justice to ail around between
individuals and between nations? It is an
utter perversion of diplomacy which thinks
of it as a means of hoodwinking somebody
and getting an unfair advantage by sharp
Cnll Things by Their Right Names.
Politics must tw elevated to mean some
thing better than a selfish and too often cor
rupt strife for place and power. Iot this lie
called what it is, partisanship. It the man
who pursues this as his vocation lu known
as a partisan. The science and art of pol
ity's may be practiced on the highest plane
of morality; more still, in the pure atmos
phere of spiritual religion. Partisanship
and dt-megogueism are, indeed, incapable of
such treatment; to succeed iu these one mu-t
cater to the bitterest prejudices, and the
darkest passions of the human heart
VERY PRETTY, BUT VERY FISHY.
A Story About the I'resldent and His
Washington City, July 1. The following
was telegraphed from here Saturday:
President Harrison was sitting in the li
brary this morning, surrounded by statesmen
and office-seekers, when a messeiiger came in
with a dispatch announcing that Mrs. Har
rison would arrive from Cape May on the
noon train. The president glanced at the
message, paused, and then read it over again.
An instant later he soiz-d a )eii, scribbled a
few lines on a scrap of paper, and pressed an
electric button at his si le.
The I'resldent Disappears.
An attendant entered and carried to the
stables a message to have the president's car
riage got ready for immediate use. The
president excused himself to his callers, left
the room, and in a jiffy changed his coat,
slipped quietly out of the back entrance and
was whirled away to the depot without any
one at the White House knowing anything
about it Not even Lige Halforil knew of
bis departure until a half -hour afterward,
when he looked into the ante-chamber and
found Mr. Wnnamaker, Secretary Blaine,
wild a dozen or more senators and congress
men wondering what could detain the presi
dent so lone.
OAT to Meet His Wife.
Arriving at the railway station Mr. Har
rison hurried down the platform and jumped
aboard the morning express that was just
pulling out of the station. An hour later be
was in Baltimore, where he met bis family,
and returned with them to this city.
"Did Want to See That Hoy."
As the carriage pulled up at the White
House steps the president sprang lightly
out, with Baby McKee in his arms. The
youngster was tugging away at his grand
father's whiskers and yelling like a little
fiend. Five minutes afterward a dignified
and pale-faced gentleman walked into the
library and whispered in Mr. H la i no's ear:
"lJardoa ray abrupt dearture, but I did
want to B.sj that boy. You were saying ."

Another Alleged Clan-na-Gael
DE. JOHN M'INERNY, OF NEW YORK,
Starts for Omaha and Never Reaches There
One of the Four Marked Men, The New
York Herald Wants to Know Where He
la Seven Indictments Returned at Chi
cago Lawyer Sullivan Not Anions; Them,
and Why Confident Officials.
New York, July 1. The Herald, In a
two-column article, calls attention to the
fact that Dr. John Mclnerny, one of the four
men who are alleged to have been doomed
to death by the inner circle of the Clan-na-Goel,
is missing still, and intimates that he
was killed before Cronin was. Shortly be
fore he was lost seen, in tho middle of April,
he received nt the Catholic Protectory a tel
egram from Omaha offering him a good po
sition if be would come there immediately to
Can Ilear Nothing from Him.
It is assumed that he started for Omaha in
time to have arrived in Chicago en route on
April 21. His friends in New York have
written to Omaha to inquire about the tele
gram and the alleged position awaiting him,
and have received replies that after diligent
inquiry no one could be found who was inter
ested in Melnerny's going to Omaha, nor
had he lawn seen there. John Detfoy, who
was Melnerny's associate at The Irish Na
tion office, believes Mdnorny was lured to
his death by the telegrutn.
lie auu One of the Ooonied.
All agree that there is just as good ground
for liclieving that Mclnerny was assassinated
as for the assertion that Cronin was slain by
the inner circle of tho Clan-tia-Gaol, w hich
had doomed Cronin, Mclnerny, IVvoy, and
Dr. McCahcy, of Philadelphia, to death.
There is evidence to show that traps were
laid for McCahey, just like those that at
first failed with Cronin, aud Devoy has been
openly threatened, and men have watched
his movements, not knowiug that their own
movements were also watched.
FOUND SEVEN INDICTMENTS.
The Chicago Orand Jury Finishes
Work In the Cronin Case.
Chicago, July 1. The special grand jury
investigating the Cronin murder has at last
got through its work and presented its re
port. The indictments found are against the
following persons: Daniel Coughliu, John P.
Beggs, ratrick O'Kullivan, Martin Burke, Pat
rick Cooney, Frank Woodruff, John hTunze.
All of these men were already under arrest,
except Kunze, who has disappeared, but is
indictMl as the mini who drove Cronin to the
cottage on tho night of the murder. It is the
lielief of the grand jury, after the hearing of
the evidence, that Cronin was killed by
Coiighlin, Cooney and Burke, and that P.
O'Sullivan was present in the cottage when
the blows were dealt, if not actually en
gaged in the bloody work. They also believe
that Coiighlin arranged the details and struck
the murderous blows.
Lawyers Sullivan and Kegs;.
The fact that A. L. Sullivan was not in
cluded in the list was a surprise to most peo
ple, but Judge Longenecker says that he was
left out for several reasons, one being that
the jury d d not have tune to bear the evi
dence. The case has not !eeii dropped, how
ever, and will be considered by another
grand jury. Another reason was that the
prosecution had more evidence, but it was
not complete, and an indictment would have
brought the fight into court, where tha state
would have leen called upon to state its
evid.nce, which was ni considered
good policy at this stag of the matter.
Beggs, it is believed, had no hand in the work
outside the secret meetings of the inner cir-
cle of Camp o 'Jo, where, it is asserted, th:
"removal" of Cronin was determined. Ti;
oinciais are connilent that several in
above list will swing for the crime, and
also confident that this crime, like the
of Cavendit-h and Burke, w ill have its Cs
