The prevalence of the yellow fever n(
Vera Cruz and other places in Mexico
will.put the health officers of the United
States on their guard. The quarantine
regulations of this country are now so
rigidly enforced that the danger from
the spread of epidemic diseases has been
greatly lessened, but sometimes, as the
past has shown, the strictest regulations
have failed to keep down disease, and
knowing this those who stand guard over
the health of the people ought to be
doubly vigilant in days of danger like
A Havana dispatch repcrts another
Spanish victory in which General Saudo
ral [captured an insurgent camp near
Guantnnamo after killing sixteen of the

bis side. These Spanish victories.[until
recently, had 1 ecome Jlecidedly "monoto?
nous; the late lull ill such reports had,
however, led the public to hope that a
Campaign of real fighting was to be inau?
gurated. It seems, though, ?they were
mistaken, and that Spain will carry on the
war in Cuba in the old style, that is. with
the pen and not with the sword Indeed,
so far as the Spanish are concerned, the
former has been far mightier than the
latter in recent Cuban conflicts. fi|
We publish elsewhere a communication
from the citizens committee in regard to
cheaper telephones, in which they ask
subscribers to stick to the new company
as offering the only safe and sure means
of securing a permanent reduction in the
rental of telephones. These gentlemen
have tailored hard and eealously ill behalf
ofjhe public interests in this matter, and
what they say should receive careful con?
sideration. The service they will procure
is well on the road to success, over 150
subscribers having already been secured.
The new company is a home concern, in
which subscribers and stockholders are
mutually interested, and a failure to
organize it now because of promised
reductions, might leave the people worse
off in the end in the matter of telephone
rales than they have ever been.
President Cleveland seems determined
that Spain "shall have no cause to com?
plain of his administration for neglecting
to[en force "the neutrality laws of this
country. His "recent proclamation 'call
ing'at tent ion to the 'disturbances ^n the
island of Cuba, anil admonishing citizens
of this country against "taking any part
in the same, shows that he is determined
not to] allow the well known sympathy
of the people of the United States for the
struggling pat riots to lead theGovernment
of this country to connive at or overlook
any infraction of the treaty rights of
Spain In his proclamation he defines
the duties of Americans under the cir?
cumstances, and concludes with a solemn
warning to all citizens of this country to
keep in the right path, promising ill ca-c
of failure on their part to do so that the
laws of the country in this respect shall
lie rigidly enforced.
The national commit!.f the People's
party has decided to locate its headquar- !
ters during the Presidential campaign at '
Washington. James A. Edgerton, of
Nebraska, the secretary, is expected to
arrive there very soon, and "Senator
Marion Butler, of North .Carolina, chair
man of the committee, will put in as
much of his ^tlnie as possible jit the na?
tional capital. It is very probable that
the .committees of the Democratic [and
national silver parties will also make
Washington their [headquarters, in order
that as much concert of action as is pos?
sible under the circumstances [may be
secured. There are just now a good many
hindrances to complete anil thorough
harmony between the Populists and Dem?
ocrats, but all of these asperities will, it
is believed, be soothed over in time for the
coalition to do some effective work to?

JUDGE HUGHES FOH BRYAN.
Judge Hoben W. Hughes, of the
United States court for the Hastern dis?
trict, though a ^Republican in politics,
and appointed to his pesent position by a
Republican President, has been for some
years a pronounced advocate of the free
coinage of silver, and has written a num?
ber of able articles in pupport of the
principle. He now goes even farther than
this, and in the course of an excellent
and convincing letter to the Fredericks
burg Free Lance, announces his deter?
mination to support Bryan and Sewall,
the Chicago nominees for President and
Vice-President, giving Hniong others the
following valid reasons for the faith that
is in him:
The proceedings at Chicago were
phenomenal; but grew naturally and

JAMES PYLE. New York.
necessarily out of the radical and revolu?
tionary policy of gold money only, which
was secretly, stealthily and without Un?
popular knowledge or consent, instituted
by the gold class in 1873; and has been
quietly, diligently ami remorselessly en?
forced ever since. It has produced an all
pervading indignation among all classes
of people save one. It has sown .some of
the seeds of communism in our republic,
which has heretofore been free from the
abomination. The growth of commun?
ism on this side of the Atlantic would be
disastrous in the extreme, and humiliat?
ing in the last*degree to our pride of I
country I have no fear that the candi?
dates who were nominated at Chicago
will sympathise in any degree with any
itisipieut manifestations of communistic
aimer, which may have found expression
The policy of "no money hut Hold has
paralyzed our industries, depreciated all
property values, undermined wages, and
spreadjdist ressjaud despondency broadcast
over the land. Tin- people are every?
where indignant to an extent not
dreamed of by the class which put this
baneful policy upon the country, or by
the newspapers, politicians, small dealers
and petty bankers, who are industriously
preaching up the Iniquitous policy in out
cities and towns. These various agents
of the gold class have separated them
selves from all relations with the voting
masse- of tbe country, and are entirely
out of rapport with tin- popular thought
The action of the Chicago convention
was a surprise to these straugers to the
popular sentiment. The election in No?
vember will be a greater surprise. The
gold policy will be voted out of existence
by ti majority never before known in
The people at large are considering the
money question and that only. Tin-mem?
bers of the Chicago convention who rep?
resented thegenuit e American sentiment
in that body, know little and care less
about communism. They will repudiate
any communistic ^interpretation of their
platform. Their object was to pronounce
anathema maranatha upon the policy of
gold money only, and to give the cold
shoulder to all who have had art or part
in putting it in force in thi- country.
They will go no farther. Radical and
revolutionary measures like that of no
money but gold invariably promote coun?
ter measures, more or less similar. The
adage says, that the devil must be fought
with bis own tire.
I have lieeti a Republican on old ami
now absolete party questlous,but all past
issues are lost in the intense feeling that
has been engendered by the radical and
revolutionary legislation of is;;:. The
election of lHJd will be an overwhelming
repudiation and rebuke of a legislation
that has been"so destructive to Ameri?
can interests of every name, ami so
humiliating to our national pride.
The nominations of tin- Chicago con?
vention were excellent. The good genius
of America presided in their selection.
They are men of spotless character, ster?
ling worth and extraordinary ability.
They have bad no entanglements with the
past politics of the old parties, a nil there
is nothing in their career- to need explana?
tion or extenuation. They will be elected
by an immense majority with joyful ac?
claim, and they will give a strong and
pure administration to the country. I
shall cheerfully vote for them with in?
r]J2kI,IAS NOT BEEN SNUBBED.
Considerable comment has been made
on the appointment, of Mr. Sheridan, of
West Virginia as"a government director
of the'Pacific railroad.it heing'at first re?
potted that the President bad made the
appointment at the suggest ion of Post?
master General Wilson without 'consult
itng Secretary of the Interior Smith, as
the regular routine of stich work is re?
quired and the proper courtesy toJJMr.
Smtth'demanded. It was stated that this
course has been pursued by the Presi?
dent, presumably a- a rebuke to the Sec?
retary of the Interior for declaring his
adherence to the Chicago platform and
nominees, and bringing into line with
the free silver part of the Democratic
party the Atlanta Journal, Mr. Smith's
newspaper, which has done so much hard
work for Cleveland's administration,
especially in the support of sound money.
Secretary Smith's resignation was pre?
dicted a- a matter of only a brief time,
and it was further stated that the Pres?
ident was very indignant at the course
which his Secretary had decided to pur?
sue. It now transpires, however, accord?
ing toa Washington dispatch, that there
was no truth in the report .and thai there
was no deviation? from the usual course
in the matter of'appointing Mr Sheri?
dan as successor to Consul General Lee,
who held the position of Pacific railroad
director for the Government prior to bis
transfer to Cuba. Mr. Sheridan's com?
mission, it is said, wa- prepared at the
Department of the Interior anil for?
warded to the President for signature in
the regular way. directions having been
given to the appointment ? lerk of the In
tereior Department more than ten days
ago to prepare a commission and forward
it to the ^President for the appointment
of Mr. Sheridan. All of this maybe very
true, but ever since Mr. Smith declared
for Bryan and Sewnll and the Atlanta
Journal announced that it would support
the Chicago platform and nominees, the
people of the South particularly have
had a sort of presentiment that be would
soon cease "to be a member of President
J Cleveland's Cabinet, and thcyj.will con
tiitue to adhere to that opinion for a
while at least, unless some authoritative
taunoucenient to the contrary [[is made.
All the talk about another Presidential
ticket is bosh, and Bryan and Sewall are
gaining strength rapidly inside their own
party and the'chances arc-Hint the bolting
element in tlie real Democratic strong?
holds will amount to nothing. Even in
New York, where the gold influence is
paramount, many men opposed to tin
financial part of the Democratic platform
will support the ticket. They know that
nothing is to be gained by affiliating with
the Republicans, who. while glad to get
their support, are unwilling to make any
concessions. McKinley is flaunting his
tariff doctrines in a manner highly offen?
sive to revenue reform Democrat s, who arc
disgusted at his arrogance, and have de?
termined to have nothing to do w ith him.
Tammany has decided to support the
Democratic ttcket,"and however much
that organization may be abused locally
it is still a great power in national poli?
tics, and will exert a*'great influence in
bringing waverers into line. Besides this
the silver sentiment is growing stronger
all the time in the rural districts of New
York and New England, and will, of it?
self, prove a potent factor in shaping re?
sults in November. It is not contended
that New York will give her electoral
vote to Bryan ami Sewall, but it is be?
lieved by many students of the political
situation that the adoption of the free
silver platform by the national Demo?
cratic committee will add but little, if
any, strength to the Republican ticket in
November, as the Democrtic losses from
the gold vote will be fully offset by the
gains from silver.
DR. MOTT ON FUSION. I'W
Dr. J. J. Mott, ex-chairman of the na?
tional committee of the Silver party, in
an interview with" a reporter of the
Washington Star, when asked if he ex?
pected any serious complications in the
matter of fusing on the electoral tickets,
said: "I do not see why then- should be
any trouble. The party which refuses to
fuse in a number of States will be looked
upon as standing in the way of silver, and
will get the worst of the bargain when
the people vote in November. My opinion
is that the people of the country id all
parties are too earnestly and loyally for
silver to let a few politicians stand in the
way of a union of the silver forces.*'
When asked if he believed that Watson
or Sewall would come off cither ticket he
said he had no idea what would be done
in this direction, but even if each refused
to get out of the other's way he did not
sec[why that should cause'so much trou?
ble. He believed that an agreement could
be reached by which the candidate for
Vice-PresidenI receiving the largest vote
would be united upon in the electoral
I college, conceding, of course, the claims
of the silver men that they will have a
majority in the electoral college. If Sew?
all gets a majority [of the votes cast in
November the Populist electors will vote
for him. On the other hand if Watson
gets a majority the Democrats will vote
If tin- leaders of tin- Democratic and
Populist parties can pursuade themselves
to such a display of sound sense ami judg?
ment as to follow such a course as that
laid down above, matters ought to move
on smoothly whether"there is any retire?
ment of one or the other Vice-Presidential
candidates on the ticket with Bryan or
not, and the success of the movement for
free coinage being paramount to that of
the individual or party even, it ought to
1m- easy for such an arrangement as that
suggested by Dr. Mott [to be effected.
