HIS SYMPATHY WITH THE BOEsI.
NCW8 and Couriar.
The more or less important fact Is
repoited from Auburn, Indiana, that
ex-President Harrison "has been in
terviewed by many public men of In
Idiana in regard to the Boer-British
war" and "minces no words in ex
pressing his spmapathy for the Boers,"
although he "persistently refuses to be
publicly quoted lest his- words embar
rass the McKinley Administration."
Why ths public men of Indiana are
Sfociing to sweet Auburn to get the
views of a geitleman who so consis
tently and persistently refumes to be
publicly "quoted," is not explained,
and why, having obtained his rQ.
minced words in strict confidence, -
public men of his State should pub
ticly quote him at once, for the embar
rassment of the MRlnley Admiuir
tration, is left to speculation; but he
is publicly quoted as "expressing his
sI mpathy for the Boers," out and out,
"Gen. Harrison contends there is no
eco -ion for gratitude on the part of
ibis Governmest toward the British.
He thinks the British were guilty of
iiihum3n practices during the Revola
tionary war, and that their attack on.
this nation in 1812 had no justification
Irom any international standpoint,
while their conduct toward the Union
during the civil war was algo repre
hensible. Glen. Harrison thinks, here
is Republic fighting for its homes
and its own government, a cause as
just as the Americans bad in their
great war of the eighteenth century."
The most interesting and significant
thing about all - these deliveranees, of
crurse, is that they come from a gen
cral who got his title by several years
of service in Sherman's army, and
accompanied it in its "barbarous
march," and took part with it in the
burning of the capital cities of The.
three States of Missisippi, Georgia and
South Carolina, and in all the "inhu
man practices"incidental to its avowed
iission of making a "hell" of tie war
in which it was employed against "a
Republic for its homes and its own
As the cause for which the Boors are
fighting is the arme as that against
winch Gen. Harrison fought so long,
in his youth, it is somewhat strange
that he should sympathize with them
r- heartily now; or, perhaps, we
should say that it would be strange
but for his own added explanation
that, as the British -were guilty of the
"reprehensible conduct" of sympathiz
ing with a Republic fighling for its
homes and own government, against
"the Union," in 1861-65, he and other'
'.,f his record are to be excused for sym
pathizing now with a Republic fighting,
for its homes anid own government'
aainst the British.

Are we really to understand thai
Gen. Harrison sympathizes in his heart
t with the Filipinos, as .well as with the
Biers, becauxe he thinks, again, that
"were is a Republic hghting for its
&womea and its own government, a
canse as just as the Americans had in
-ttheir great war of the "eighteenth
,c -tury," but does not cars to say so,
publiciy, for fear of embarrassing the

Robbed the Grave.
A startling incident of which Mr
John Oliver of Philadelphia, was the
subject, is narrated by him as follows:
"I wvas in a most dreadful condition.

hoir use for three weeks, and am now
