AN EXCITING RUNAWAY.
Mr. and Mrs. J. S. Hyman Have a
Narrow Escape.
Mr. and Mrs. J. S. Hyman figured in a
runaway accident last niKht. In which
Jirs tiyinin displayed rare courage and
the horse exhibited rare qualifications as
a hurdler and runner.
Mr and Mrs. Hyman were driving west
on iifteenth street from College avenue.
V.? usm?u TaP on the shaft through
he.h"1d-baek. strap passes slipped
oft". The buggy ran onto the horse and
he started.
fifteenth street is a fine road and the
spirited animal was raising a great oloud
ot dust as he rushed furiously down the
slight grade. Mr. and Mrs. Hvman were
in a dangerous predicament, but fortun
ately escaped without lnjurv. One mo
ment it seemed that the "horse would
overturn the buggy and precipitate the
occupant into a wire fence, and as he
kicked the dash into the air and swerved
from side to side it seemed that there was
no escape for the people In the plunging
buggy.
Mrs. Hyman, who, bv the wav, is quite
a horse-woman, had the lines :whn the
excitement commenced, but Mr. Hyman
plied his strength in vain when the fright
ened horse was running. Near Washburn
avenue two men driving wagons in which
they had been hauling brick drew up
across the mad and formed a barrier into
which Mr. Hyman steered his horse and
th runaway was ended.
Mr. and Mrs. Hyman climbed into one
of the wagons after the scattered pieces
of harness and buggy had been gathered
from the roadside by sympathetic passers
by. The runaway horse was anchored to
the rear of the other wagon with two
neck straps and a hitch rein and in this
.order the procession returned to town.
1 he animal was worth iisO before the
runaway.

LOOKS TO CLEVELAND.
The New York Herald Cries Out
Against Imperialism.
Chicago. June 22. The Record has
the following dispatch from New York:
The Herald this morning prints an
editorial under the caption "The United
States Cannnot Afford to Be a Baby
Empire. What Is the Matter with Mr.
Cleveland for Our Next President?" It
was written by James Gordon Bennett,
and says:
"After an existence of a century and
a quarter as a country where the gov
ernment derives authority solely from
the consent of the governed the United
States is turning its back upon its
own history and traditions. From a
free Democracy it is in danger of be
coming a tyrannical, imperialistic
oligarchy. The adult republic seems to
be entering its second childhood as a
baby empire.
"As a sign that it has deserted the
principles of individual freedom, upon
which it was founded, it is at this
present moment trying: to cram its rule,
at the bayonet's point, down the throats
of the people Filipinos, Cubans and
Porto Ricar.s whom the declaration of
independence says were 'created equal,
with certain inalienable rights," among
which are 'life, liberty and the pursuit
of happiness.'
As far as the Filipinos are concern
ed, the United States is doing its
'damnedest' to alienate all three of
these 'inalienable rights.' Their lives
have been taken, they have been robbed
of their liberty and instead of pur
suing happiness they are being pursued
like wild beasts into the savage inter
ior of their native islands: and all be
cause they believed, like the American
colonists of 1TT6, that they were Justi
fied in trying to institute a new govern
ment in conformity with their legiti
mate desires and needs when the old
one imposed upon them by Spain had
become intolerable. .
"It is about time to face the situa
tion squarely. The United States can
not, will not, allow the war to continue
much longer.
"It is high time the United' States
woke up and pulled out of the imperial
business. The game is not worth the
candle, for that way ruin lies.
"It is not surprising that the Demo
crats have seized upon this Philippine
failure, this drifting from safe national
moorings out upon the uncertain sea of
imperialism, as an issue in the coming
campaign. If they were wise enough to
make it the one paramount issue, throw
silverism overboard and nominate a
candidate with the statesmanship to
grasp the situation and the courage to
meet it. such, for example, as Grover
Cleveland, who has proved himself a
man of brains and backbone, indepen
dent alike of congressional bulldozing
and party dictation, Mr. McKinley's
days in the White House would be
numbered.
"The real national mission of the
United States is a pacific and commer.
eial one. Such a mission is the worst
running mate in the world for imperial
aspirations.
"Imperialism is a military, not a com
mercial ambition, and Is one that by a
strange fatality destroys those that
cherish it. The republics of history lie
buried in the ashes of empire. Is the
United States getting all ready to be
added to the heap?
"The United States cannot afford to be
a baby empire. It can afford to stand
off and watch the baby empire of Eng
land, the baby empire of Germany,
worry with their troubles.
"This truth wants driving home to
the American people, but by whom? The
American Democracy is in sore straits
for lack of a leader possessed of sound
business common sense so that he may
discern Justly where the country's true
interests lie.
'Mr. Cleveland is just such a man.
His statesmanlike prescience and de
termined will kept the country from
taking over Spain's troubles for two
years. It was from no lack of courage.
Mr. Cleveland, in fact, proved this, for
he is the only American president who
ever went fearlessly into the. British
lion's den and "twisted its tail,' as he
did over the Venezuela question. In
both the British and Spanish difficulties
he showed sound judgment, shrewd com
mon sense, firmness and breadth of
view. He refused to bully the weak or
to cringe to the strong. He was the
rudder of the government, not the fig
urehead. "That is why the Herald asks: 'What
is the matter with Mr. Cleveland for
our next president?' "
