Sitting at home to save shoe-leather is econo my, but it is scarcely wisdom. In the same way, doing without Ivory Soap is economy 1 - - but it isn't wise; your risks are greater than all possible saving. Every cheap soap contains free alkali. . Now, free alkali will eat its way through the new oil cloth on the kitchen floor Imagine then what it will do in a single Monday's wash ing! Is such economy wise? WARM FOR JOINTISTS. Arrests Continue .With Clock-liike Regularity. The police continued their good work Wednesday evening of arresting joint Ista and the following: names were add ed to the police register as a. result: Mat Cave, eGorgre Head, C. H. Cave, Dan Kinney, Frank Swartz, William Finney and William Shaffer, making- In all forty-eight arrests since the com mencement of the raids. There are a number of warrants in the hands of the police and as soon as the joints reopen 9 they have been in the habit of doing they will be arrested. The cases of most of the jointists were set for August 27 and 2S, at 2 o'clock in the afternoon. This is two hours earlier than the regular time for the opening of police court, but Judge Magaw decided that it would require that much extra time to handle the cases. The joints raided did not have a large quantity of liquor, as they have all be come frightened at the raids and car ried only bottled beer and whisky. The Btock usually consists of a keg of beer, a pine board bar, a. beer pump and a few glasses and the loss of that much, stock represents a loss of about $7.00. Mayor Drew said this morning that lie was satisfied with the work now be ing done, and intended that it should be kept up. "The jointists and a few other people seem to think it is a bluf, but I will show them that I mean business and am determined that this illegal traffic shall be stopped," said be. MUCH A 1)0 ABOUT NOTHING. LaBouchre Publishes His Correspond ence With. Montague White. New Tork, Aug. 23. A dispatch to the Tribune from London says: Toward the close of the parliamentary session Mr. Chamberlain announced that letters compromising some members of the house of commons had been found among the Boer archives at Pretoria. One of these members was Henry La Bouchere and he has now answered Mr. Chamberlain's threat to publish the cor respondence by publishing it himself. The letters were addressed by Mr. La Bouchere to Montague White eariy in August of last year when, of course, Great Britain and the Transvaal were etili at peace. In one letter Mr. La Bouchere strongly urges that President Kruger should accept a conference. which was at that time suggested to sectle the franchise question. He said if this were done it would take almost a month to settle the details and by that time the warlike fever In Kngland would have passed away. "And if." he added, "the basis was established that there should be substantial representation of the out lander yet not such as to endanger the majority of the Boers no danger would arise to the independence of the repub lic." In an open letter to Mr. Chamberlain Mr. LaBouchere contends that he had a perfect right to use his efforts to avert the struggle and that In advising the Transvaal government to make a con ftxnoDa R.prMDMtlve J R. noted under tbe fifteen wr of set upon reappfcfcB&M tb tp new Honor tftr&i be Bv. n hospital.

Mr. LaBouchere adds, that as he has published his letters to Mr. White, per haps Mr. Chamberlain will now publish his correspondence with Rhodes' solici tor which proves, according to some of the radicals that the colonial secretary had a guilty knowledge of the Jamison conspiracy. The conspiracy trial at Pretoria has terminated, as was expected, with the conviction of the accused German lieu tenant, Hans Cordua. There was no doubt that this young man had broken his parole and had committed a most serious offense against martial law by appearing in the uniform of a British officer. As for the plot to kidnap Lord Roberts, it seems to have been an extremely vague and foolish affair, and never to have got beyond the stage of conversation on the subject between Cordua and the Spanish detective Gano, who was admitted by the prosecution to have acted the part of agent provo cateur and suggested the plan to Cordua, Sentence is deferred until the conviction has been affirmed by Lord Roberts. Some of the afternoon papers are al ready clamoring that an example should be made by shooting Cordua but consid ering the youth and silliness of the prisoner and the fact that his so-called plot was gotten up for him by a British police agent, it seems hardly likely that the death penalty will be inflicted. LANDS ATTACHED. Authorities Levy on Property of Connecticut Mutual For Hillmon Claim. United States Marshal Stern has ad vertised for sale the lands owned in Leavenworth county by the Connecticut Mutual Life Insurance company to sat isfy the judgment of $11,084 which was given by the federal jury to Mrs. Hill-mon-Smith. The date of the sale is fixed for September 22, 1900, and unless the Insurance company pays the judg ment on or before that date the lands will go to the highest bidder. The lands comprise about 1,000 acres and is con sidered very valuable property, much of it being under cultivation and there will be no trouble in realizing the amount of the judgment. Deputy United States Marshal Prescott and a board of ap praisers appointed by the marshal ap praised the land last week. If the land does not bring the amount -of the judgment and the company re fuses to pay the judgment it may result in the company being excluded from do ing business in the state. New Rural Route .

NEW SUITS BY EVERY EXPRESS. COCXDCOCXDOOOOOOCXDOOO IS SUPREME RULER. "Governor" of An ticosti Island Sails For France. New Tork, Aug. 23. On the passenger list of the French line steamer Lor raine, sailing this morning for Havre, appears the name of L. O. Comettant, the "governor" of Anticosti. Mr. Comettant became associated with Henri E. Menier, a Paris million aire, who in 1S9 bought the Island of Anticosti in the gulf of St. Lawrence, from a British syndicate, with a view of turning it into a game preserve and devoting portions to French coloniza tion. The island, a British possession, lying off the mouth of the St. Lawrence river, is 140 miles long and 27 miles wide. Mr. Menier paid $250,000 for it. Mr. Comettant . went to Anticosti as Mr. Menier"s agent, and is locally konwn as the "governor," though, of course, without political power, as the islnad belongs to Great Britain. His headquarters are on English bay, where there are about fifty French families. The entire population there and at Fox bay, on tiie north and opposite side of the island, is only about five hundred. TEDDY OUT OF VOICE. Roosevelt Pleads For a Shorter Campaign Schedule. Chicago, Aug. 23. The Chronicle says Governor Roosevelt has written the fol lowing letter to Henry C. Payne, chair man of the executive committee: "My voice never has recovered from the effects of my campaigning in New York state during the gubernatorial con test of two years ago. I am willing to do all in my power for the party on the stump, I will not object to being worked up to the limit, but I pray you not to work me over the limit until right at the end of the contest." "In other words," commented Mr. Payne, "the governor is willing to lose his voice and lay down his life for his party, but he asks that the sacrifice be postponed until the close of the cam paign." Owing to Mr. Roosevelt's complaint about his threatening weakness of voice, itis probable that but few of the de mands for rear car speeches will be ac ceded to by the national committee. Three addresses a day is the limit, ac cording to the present plans, and even these oratorical efforts probably will be cut short, then shorter and finally shortest as the campaign progresses and the effects of much speaking wear upon the candidate's throat. "I am no elocutionist," admits the noimnee in his letter in hieplea for mercy at the hands of the national committee. Otherwise, he adds, he might be able to use hia vocal organs with less wear and tear. FUSION IN WISCONSIN. Democrats and Populists Unite on Presidential Electors. Milwaukee, Wis., Aug. 23.
