in the municIpalities and other local

at once, so as to enable the intelligent
citizens of the island to participate In
their own government and to learn by
practical experience the duties and
rcquirements of a self-contained and
sell-governing people. I leave not
thought It wise to commit the entire
government of the islanid to olilcers
selected by the people, because I doubt
whether in habits, training and expe
rience they are such as to fit them to
exercise at once .so large a deore of

LYNUCIING MUST UEAS.
What I said in 111Y inaugural address

' The cons.titutional authorities

A GEORGIA TEMPERANCE~ STORY.
The Augusta Cnronicie says that
Judge E. M. Brinson tells a good story
>n himself, which illustrates how the
Willingham bill has been absorbing
atention in Atlanta. " I strolled into
the Senate chamber," said Judge Brin
Ron, " while in the capitol, thinking I
ould speak with some personal
friends there, and with no thought of
iscussing the pending bill. Recog
izing a former acquaintance I ac
osted him and shook hands, but soon
iscovered that he did not recall me,
Isaid, 'You don't remember who I am.~
This i. Brinson, of the Augusta cr
uit.' He had been in the Lcgislature
hen I was elected circuit judge and
ad voted for me, and I thought giv
lg him my name and circuit would
ecall to him my identity ; but he was
reoccupied with the Wiliingham bill,
and had evidently been beset by the
reachers, for just this moment anoth
r gentlemai came up and pointing
o my legislative friend, said to
the newcomer : ' This is Parson Birin
on : he rides the Augusta eircu it.' He
ad taken me for a Methodist preach
r on the Augusta circuit, and thought
Iwas there to argue with him in be
alf of prohibition." Nobody enjoys
he joke more than Judge Birinson
imself, and the story was so good
hat he promptly told it to the mom
ers of the bar on his return fromi
IBROUGHIT HIM TO TIM.-" Well,'
emarked the fond, but bashful young
an, rising at a late flour to go, " it
eems hardly worth while for me tc
stay any longer. We are not going to

isappointment, but I have enjoyedI
the evening exceedingly in spit) of
hat. And there won't be another
treat shower like the one we have
is'ed seeing," he added, fingering
his tao " for 33 years I"
" Well," responded the maiden, look
ng dreamily out at the darkened
,kies, " if you'll come we'll sit up and
watch for that one, too."
Tben he put down his hat.
" Katie," he gasped, " do you think

" It looks like it," she replied do

--A curious accident took place at
Brookfield, Ind. A local freight train
was bacoking into a siding to allow a
fast frieght to pass. The switch was
eft open, however, and the fast
freight, traveling at the rate of thirty
miles an hour, dashed into it. The
rews of both trains jumped. The im
act of the collision was so severe as
~o drive the tender of the stationary
rain off Its trucks, and telesco ping a
attle car which was loaded with coal,
t rested half on the top of the third
ar. On the fast froight a car loaded
ith hogs was telescoped by one
oaded with shelled corn and the anI
nals not killed in th< collision werec
mothered by the corn. It is said that
he locomotives are so interlocked
hat dynamite will be retquired to
apa rate them.
