President McKinley was put In the
wrong pew nt the Metropolitan Methodist
Church last Sunday; but If his heart is
in the right place the pew he sits iu will
make no difference.
It is consoling to reflect that so far,
while a few sin-dl hurricanes have recent?
ly struck the country east of the Ap?
palachian range, all of the fully devel?
oped cyclones have exhibited their gyra
tions west of that line. While there is
no knowing how long Providence may
smile upon the apparently protected sec
tions, there Is every reason to bless the
winds that blow the other way.
The members of the United States Sen?
ate do not take very kindly to the ap?
pointment of Senators by the governors of
different States, and already there has
been a lntch in receiving [members from
Oregon and Florida. The successors of
Senators Mitchell and Call have already
discovered that while it may be easy to
get tin appointment it is difllctllt to get
Col. John Hay has been nominated am?
bassador to England in place of Mr. Bay?
ard, who has held the position lor four
years, greatly to his own satisfaction and
that of the English people, but very little
to the satisfaction of his own country?
men. Colonel Hay's appointment meets
with the general approval it: England;
but, naturally, the people there would
prefer a man who believes in ^Great Bri?
tain its much, if not more than injiis own
The powers after holding out hopes to
Greece of non-lnterferenci in the Cretan
muddle have Anally decided to'blockade
the island. England takes the initiative
in the matter and British troops have al
renily started for Crete. The Creeks ail
pear determined to resist, but as their
warships are leaving Cretan rvaters it is
not probable that they will do anything
more than to formally protest against tlv
action of Great Britain, France and other
members of the coalition.
The annual losses from Hoods on -the
Mississippi and Missouri rivers render it
necessary that the general Government
should take the matter in hand and by a
regular system of Improvements keep the
great volume of water iu the proper clintl
nels. It would co-t an.immense amount
of money to prevent the annual destruc?
tion occurring along the course of these,
streams: but tie* value of the work would
be far in excess of the outlay. The
United States is able to advance tin
money and by levying an annual tax on
the lauds protected, the Government
would in due time be fully compensated
for the trout le and expense. If money
can be advanced to build a trans cont i
nental railway, surely the two greatest
rhei-s on the continent should be made to
subserve to the uses of the people, both
in the matter ol navigation and in the
prevention ol I es caused by Hoods mid
According to advice-, received, from
Frankfort, Ky., tho outlook for Senator
Blackburn's re-election is anything but
bright. Five new State senators were
sworn in the Kentucky legislature on
Tuesday, of whom four were Bepilbil
cues and one a Democrat. The friends
of Mr. Blackburn attcmpetd to refer the
credentials, but were outvoted, which
means that Kentucky will lie repre
seated by a Republican in the United
States Senate for the nevt six vears, in
stead of a silver Democrat. Sf nator Black
liurn made a gallant fight; but the odds
ugalusl him were too great even for pluck
and preseveicnec like bis to overcome.
Ex-President Cleveland and Secretary
Carlisle are in a large measure ifspousi

A I.CCKV MAX,
In nominating Genend Horace Porter,
61 New York, (is minister to France,
President McKinley seems to have mhde
II good selection. General Doric;- was on
the stall' of General Grant during the
civil war ami d id gallant service there and
elsewhere for his country. Since the close
Ol hostilities he has used his pen almost
as vigorously as he used his sword, and
in Iiis reminiscences ol the life <>i the
gnat Union genera!, he has given the
American people a closer view of (Irani
as a man, probably, than any other
writer, excepting the old soldier himself.
General Porter's opportunities for ad
VAnCChient have been line ever since the
Ik'tdnntng of his career, and ho has not
lieen -low In making the most of them.
A son of the governor of Ohio, ami a
graduate ?f West. Point, promotion natu?
rally came easy to him at the beginning
of tlie war and being a man of really su- |
perior attainments it was not long be?
fore lie was recognized as one of the most
promising of the younger officers of tin
army. He attracted the attention of Gen?
end Grant at Chattanooga, just before.t be
battle of Missionary Hiilge, anil when
the bitter was given command of all the
armies of the United States, lie gave the
young officer a plnce~on his staff. While
holding that position Colonel Porter won
the confidence and friendship of his com?
mander and the fact that he was able to
use this to his own advantage is not the
least to his discredit, but rather addi?
tional evidence that he was born under a
lucky Btar, and is likely to die under it.
TKUE AND WELL SAID.
It is a grent privilege to conduct a jour?
nal that is honest and courageous. The
editor who tries always to he on the pop?
ular side, and w ho weighs his every word
in the scales of mere policy does the
drudging of a slave. Hut the editor
who, In preparing his matter,[kuows that
he is only to he guided by his sense of
what is just and honest, writes as a free?
man ?Ith a hold pen and with head erect.
The work of such an editor is a pleasure
?the pleasure of doing right and assert
ing his manhood. There is no inspira?
tion like that of an honest conviction.?
RICH CHI NAM l-'.X IN TR0UB1 E.
They Come to Appeal From Sentences of
Death or Imprisonment.
New York, Marth 17.?Ten anxious
Chiniinien arrived from San Francisco
yesterday in a private car on their way to
Washington. It is their purpose to try
ami induce the Chinese minister there to
pereunde his Celestial majesty, the em?
peror, to release two of them from the
sentence of death, which had been passed
upon them, and to free the others from
the danger of bel?g imprisoned should
they revisit the land of their birth.
The party contains Lee Kaing Chow,
who is said to hare leathered a fortune of
13,000,000; I.ec Fook, who has made $800,
000 in the tobacco trade: Chan See Dunn,
a rice and tea merchant: Wong Shai

Fong Yo Katng is the president of
the See Yup Society, a mutual benefit
organization incorporated under the laws |
of California. His companions are all
members of the society, and this is w hat
got them into trouble. The See Yups
are the rivals of the Sam Yups. Both
have close relations w ith the powerful
As Mr. Campbell explained it. the Six
Companies maintains a sort of society
tor tin- suppression of vice aud crime.
This is the Wee Hai Hung. Its business
is to keep the run of all the dark doings
of the Chinese in this country, and to
give testimony against lawbreakers when
it is needed. The Sam Yups got control
of this .society, Mr. Campbell says, and
had several Chinamen who had bteu eon
vie ted of crime and had ?'done time," ap?
pointed on the board of inspectors. These
men act as its agents.
The See Yups protested against these
appointments to the Chinese consul at
San Francisco, Fung Yeong Heng, but,
he refused to interfere. The controversy
ended in a boycott between the societies.
The consul ordered this to be declared
off, and the See Yups obeyed, but told
him that there would be I rouble while the
The See Yups were particularly ag?
grieved at the appointment of the agents
because, It is alleged, they were most cer?
tain to convict a See Yup and to exoner?
ate a Sam Yup.
The consul then sent to Minister Yang
Yu, in Washington, -i'story that the See
Yups were rebels, full of treason, ami
that they were plotting the overthrow of
t he emperor, for which purpose they were
collecting munitions of war. The min?
ister prepared an indictllieut containing
the charges and sent it home. The re?
sult was the emperor caused the property
of seventeen of the See Yups to !?? seized,
imprisoned many of their relatives, con
lle'llllied Lee Kaing Chow and Chilli!
Wang Way to be liehen led and sentenced
the others to imprison In-lit for life if
they ever set loot in thl\einuire again.
It is tc secure the rel&Ve of their rela?
tives and to get their proVrty back, as
well as to secure the revolt ion ol the
sentences, that an appeal will 'ty made to
Minister Yll. The delegates wh> charge
before him that Consul Heng, afte.xtlie
boycott, offered Chief of Police Crowlc^
ot San Francisco, $10,000 indemnity if be'

hired a bai d of while men to go at thetll
