President McKinley has appointed Rev.
W. T. Anderson, an Ohio colored man, as
chaplain in the army. As that will not
involve nny local position in the Buckeye
State there will not, of course, *ie any
kicking there about it. A few negro
postmasters in Ohio with good salaries
?would raise a howl, however.
Reports from Richmond indicate that
the Populists of Virginia will put a full
State ticket in the field. As the Repub?
licans are said to hold similar intentions,
the prospects are good for a lively triangu?
lar fight next fall. This, however, will
only ,mlike Democratic success all the
more certain.
The enemies of organized labor in this
country nave come to the conclusion that
the only restraining force that can be
used to advantage against Debs and bis
associates is the employment of injunc?
tions, and, from tLe range and scope of
this new method ol warfare it really ap?
pears that It can be appropriated to almost
any use imaginable, whenever the necess?
ities of the case demands it.
Tb?? fact that a number of cotton mills
in the ens* which have been stopped tem?
porarily' have again started on full time
will be heralded to the country by the
McKinley organs us a complete return of
prosperity. Calling a crow white does
not change his color, nor will the cry of
prosperity bring about that condition
until it really axists.
Whitelaw Heid says that he does not
know that Secretary Sherman is thinking
about retirement, or that anybody is go?
ing to take his place. Something disa?
greeable has happened between the New
York editor and the venerable Secretary
of State, or the world is more than ever
given to lying, probably the latter.
Congressman Lamb, of the Third Vir?
ginia district, is an earnest advocate of
the primary plan for nominating candi?
dates for United States Senator,' and,
what is more, he believes it -will soon be
adopted by the Democratic voters of Vir?
ginia. He finds very few of his constitu?
ents opposed to it. Senator Daniel's mis?
take In opposing the plan is daily becom?
ing more evident.
The emperor of Germany with bis
usual impetuosity has sent hit*congratul?
ations to the Count of Turin on bis suc?
cessful encounter with'Prince Henri, of
France, and it is very probable that his
effusiveness will stir up as much bad
foeliug in the latter country as his tele?
gram to the president of the Boer Repub?
lic on the failnre of the Jamison raid did
in England. William has u way of his
own in such matters, and never seems to

Do people buy Hood's Sarsaparilln in
preferenco to any other,?in fact almost
to the exclusion of all others?
Because
They know from actual use that Hood's
is the best, i. e., it cures when others fail.
Hood's Sarsaparilla is still made under
the personal supervision of the educated
pharmacists who originated it.
The question of best is just as positively
decided in favor of Hood's as the question
of comparative sales.
Another thing: Every advertisement
of Hood's Sarsaparilla is true, is honest.

All accounts agree In representing the

from Juueau to tho mining camp without

in the way, and that tho people of tho two
countries which yiave spanned the con?
tinent with railways should hesitate
about building this one is not for a mo?

regions"will soon be built, and then the
real rush to tho Yukon country will com?

Acting Secretary Roosevelt Is consider?
ing the advisability of assigning a naval
vessel to the exclusive use of tho naval
militia of the country. Ho considers the
naval reserves a most valuable adjunct
to the regular naval establishment, aud
that better means should be provided for
their instruction in the arts of naval war?
fare. His recent inspection of tho militia
convinced him of the necessity for a rad?
ical change in the present methods of
drills aud exercises in order to render the
meu more efficient iu the duties that,
would devolve upon them iu the event ol
war. He has outlined a plan wherebj a
vessel of the gunboat class will bo as?
signed to work with the reserves, spend?
ing the winter months with the southern
bodies and the summer [with the north?
ern, thus giving all organizations ample
chance to secure the benefits of training
on modern vessels of war. As the duties
of the militia in war times will be iu har?
bor work and on auxiliary cruisers, such
as the swift liners in the Atlantic trnde,
it Is urged that a vessel carrying tin ]
same armament that [ships of this class
would have should be selected. .This will
not be difficult, owing to the number of
ships now available"of"[the type ^eslred.
The vessel for this duty is to be of light
draught In older that she may asceud the
shallow rivers on the southern coast and
can be readily haudled in narrow water?
ways.
THE SOUTH POLE EXPEDITION.
Lieutenant Gerlache, a Belgian officer,
has started on an exploring expedition
towards the South Pole, from wdiich im?
portant results are expected. He left,
Antwerp on the Kith inst. on the steamer
Beleloa aud expects to'begone.two years.
Ho will attempt to reach a point within
the antarctic circle by October III), when
the summer season of that /.one is full un?
der way and will stop at.Falkland Islands
in the straits of Magellan to coal up for
the final journey. Tee Relgica will then
take her course towards Graham's Lund
nnd penetrate as far south as possible till
winter begius, wdien she will sail for
Melbourne, Australia and, cruise in the
South Pacific until summer begins Then
she will go back towards, the South Pole,
and Lieutenant Gerlache w'U continue
his explorations ill that direction until
the return of winter compels him to
leave for Europe. But little scientific re?
search has been made in the direction <f
the South Pole as compared with the
North, aud as the Bclgicais well equipped
for the work in hand it is hoped [the ex
'peditiou will .solve many .important geo?

JUSTICE FIELD.
Justice Stephen J> Field, of,the United
States supreme court, has been longer on
the bench than any [of his predecessors,
exceeding the term of Chief Justice Mar?
shall on the Kith instant by.'one day. Un?
til that date the period of service of Chief
Justice Marshall was the longest, being
thirty-four years. It was thought that
Justice Field, when he had gratified his
ambition of being the longest in office of
any member of the supreme court, would
ask to be retired; but it is now said that
' he has no intention of doing so. .[IleMs
*U years old, and, though physically fee
?>le, is still strong [mentally. He .was
appointed to the position in 1803by Pres
iden Lincoln, and has[proven bin"self an
able jurist. Justice Field'is one of a
remarkable family, of which he Is him?
self the most distinguished. He is a
brother of Cyrus \V. Field, who united
Europe and [JAmerica by the Atlantic
cable,and another brother, David Dudley
Field, was one of America's greatest
lawyers. Still another brother, Henry
Martyu Field, as preacher and editor of
religious journals added luster to the
name, while lusticc Drewer, of the same
court, Is his nephew.
THE INTERNATIONAL DUEL.
The duel between Prince "Henri of Or?
leans,a claimant for the throne of France,
and Victor Emailuel, count of Turin and
nephew of King!Huml>ert of Italy, has
caused great excitement in Europe, espe?
cially in the countries represented by the
combatants. The fact that the Count Df
Turin was declared the victor has greatly
elated his countrymen, while the French
people, although republicans, are propor?
tionately depressed at the failure of
Prin. e.Henri on the field of honor.
The French prin.o severely criticised
the conduct Df the Italian officers and
meu in the campaign against King Mene
lek, of Abyssinia, and [as a result he was
challenged to mortal combat by a number
of officers of] high rank iu the Italian
army. Just as he was about to light, one
of these, tho Count of Turin chal?
lenged the prince, and being of
Cancer
Of the Face.
Mrs. LauraE. Mims.of Smithville.Ga,,
says: "A small pimple of a strawberry
color appeared on my cheek; it soon
began to grow rapidly, notwithstand?
ing all efforts to check it. My
eye became terribly
inflamed, and was so
swollen that for quite
a while I could not
see. The doctors
said I had Cancer of
the most malignant
type, and after ex
bansting their efforts
without doing me
any good,they gave
up the case as hopeless. When in?
formed that my father had died from
the same disease, they said I must die,
as hereditary Cancer was incurable.
"At this crisis, I was advised to try
S.S.S., and in a short while the Cancer
began to discharge and continued to do
so for three months, then it began to
heal. I continued the medicine a while
longer until the Cancer disappeared en?
tirely. This was several years ago and
there has been no return of the disease."

royal blood all the other challengers
had to yield to him the honor of meeting
the abusive Frenchman. In tlie duel
with swords that followed Prince Henri
received a wound which incapacitated
him for further fighting, and atj last"ac?
counts his condition was regarded as se
rioos.
Prince Henri, as a claimant to the
throne of France, no doubt hoped to gain
great glory by the duel, and such would
no doubt have been the ease had he neen
declared the victor instead of the Count
of Turin. Failure, however, is nowhere
more condemned than in France, and as
Prince Henri was not the equal of his ad?
versary in handlinL! his sword he has no
doubt had his labor for his pains, and in
ail probability will soon drop out of the
notice of his countrymen. He played for
high steaks and lost. The*French repub?
lic has ratlnr been ? strengthened than
otherwise by the result of the encounter,
but the Bourbons and Bonapartists will
continue their scheming in the hope that
time will yet give them the opportunity
for regaining power, which they have so
lonu sought for in vain.
The success of the Count of Turin in
vindicating the reputation of bis coun?
trymen for courage will make him a pop?
ular idol in Italy: but it is more than
probable he will receive several chal?
lenges from irate Frenchmen anxious to
prove to the world that as swordsmen
they are the superiors of the Italians.
To the people on this side of the water
such a duel seems little more" than a
farce. If Prince Henri and the Count of
Itirin had been skillf.il in the use of re?
volvers and had selected these weapons in?
stead of swords, one or another mieht
now be dead: but a duel in France and a
duel in America differ in many material
respects.
The French say ?"it. is the '.Impossible
that happens." This has proved to be the.
case with the Mount Lebancn Shakers.
The whole scientific world has been labor?
ing to cure dyspepsia, but every c^orl
seemed to meet with defeat. The suffer?
ing from stomach troubles has become al?

sire for food and that which they do eat
causes them pniu and distress. Sleepless

HARPER'S WEEKLY AND THE
SOUTH.
Some weeks ago that eminent Mug?
wump organ, Harper's Weekly, indulged
iu a species of rapture over a letter writ?
ten by Hon. William L. Wilson, in the
course of which the writer explained his
plans in accepting the Presidency of
Washington and Lee University, of Vir?
ginia. In common with a number of
petSOli and newspapers belonging to the
uninspired aud uuauointcd rnhhie," the
I Post found occasion to ciiticise the terms
in which Mr. Wilson made this explana?
tion, though we feu nil the comments and
deductions of Harper's Weekly even more
offeusive and distasteful. Now, in tho
latest edition of the periodical in ques?
tion, we see what purports to be a review
of the original publication, together with
some fresh and more detailed analysis of
the objectionable utterances.
Harper's Weekly now tells us that It
has been grieved chiefly by the decadence
of South Carolina, and laments .the fact
that "Tillman and Irby are the succes?
sors of the giants of tho days before the
war." It also weeps over the fact that
Wade Hampton aud Brawlcy have been
driven out of politics and that Butler has
had his ''manliness" destroyed. We are
told that at least one Southern Senator,
Mr. Cutlery, of Louisiana, still remains
to show the South's capacity for produc?
ing great men, but all'this seems to sink
into significance because McEnery the
other Louisiana Senator, is engaged in a
'?vulgar scramble for a share in the spoils
of the protective policy." These expla?
nations would have been made before,
says Harper's Weekly, bot the writer of
the original art'ele went abroad immedi?
ately a'tcr its appearance in print, and
has only now returned.
We do rot see that our esteemed con?
temporary has bettered its position to
anygreal extent by this rambling and in?
coherent declaration. What it saiil iu
the first place was that the moral tone of
the South was deplorable, and that Mr.
Wilson's acceptance of 'the presidency of
Washington and Lee University war?
ranted the hope that a higher civilization
would spring up in the pathway of his
activity. We were given to ufaderstand
that I he South had fallen into a stale of
demoralization.' It was said, or inti?
mated, that Southern youth sadly needed
instruction in the line of honor, integrity
and patriotism. A perusal of Harper's
Weekly article, apropos of Mr. Wilson's
accession to the leadership of the Vir?
ginia college, left the impression that the
South was iu desperate need of enlighten?
ment and examples of integrity. Evi?
dently the Mugwump heart yearned fr>r
the South's salvation and reclamation.
For our part, we do not think the occa?
sion called for a demonstration of indig?
nation. Mugwumps amuse and some?
times irritate us. but we have never yet
found them worthy of serious resent?
ment. Nevertheless, Harper's Weekly
has discovered anger, and is now endeav?
oring tc appease it by this, blundering
and stupid utterance.
The simple truth of the matter is that
Harper's Weekly has been alarmed by the
tendency of the Smith toward common
sense In politics. .The question is the old
one between the sentimental theory of
free trade und'the practical movement In
tho direction of material prosperity. Ac?
cording to Harper's Weekly, it Is immor?
al to protect and promote domestic in?
dustries and virtue is to be found only in
saciDicing American industries to the
doctrine of free trade We do not think
that the South need fly into a passion
ovei Harper's Weekly and its impudent
vnporlngs, and we do not believe that it
has done so. The Southern people have
taken care of their political morality for
many years past, and their present and
prospective prosperity shows that
they have succeeded fairly well. They
will, no doubt, go to the. end without aid
from llai por's Weekly or tho Hon. Wil?
liam L. Wilson.? Washington Post.

NEED OF BANKRUPTCY BILL.
Representative Henderson Says One Will
l)e Passed in December.
Washington, Aug. 17.?Representative
Henderson, of Iowa, chairman of tho
House committee on the judiciary, is in
the city for a few ''ays. and is quoted as
saying that the first bill the committee
will report when it meets iu December
will he a substitute for the Nelson bank?
ruptcy bill that passed the Senate during
the extra session.
This is one of the great subjects that
ought to have been dealt ivith during the
extra session, and would had it not been
for the suppression of the House by arbi?
trary power ot Spenker Reed. No mens
ure that has been proposed in recent
years will afford more of real benefit to
the small tradesmen and farmers than a
national bankruptcy law.
It is the intention of Chairman Hen
dew on to pass the bill before the holiday
recess, but this does not necessarily mean
that the bill to be passed "will he similar
to that, adopted by the Kennte. Air.
Henderson is confident the House will
pass its measure promptly, and it will
probably be done under a special order
from the committee on rules.
Mr. Henderson and other members of
the committee,who have been giving this
subject consideration, are doubtlul il the
Senate will accept any bill that does not
contain the chief features of the Nelson
measure, which was agreed to only after
a prolonged contest iu committee and in
the Senate, aud after several votes had
been taken. This particular form of the
proposed law is^noi indorsed by Chair?
man Henderson.

!' He recommended the taxing of manufac?
