The time had come when nothing would save Tammany from defeat. The election In Greater New "Fork was a notable victory for the friends of good government. Even Spain forces restitution by the government which harbors abductors of Spanish children. Old lines are again drawn, and Ken xucky and Maryland swing back into the Democratic column. While Boss Croker was beaten in New York, Boss Gorman seems to have Won a decisive victory in Maryland. Florida Times-Union: The man of the world judges the character of a com munity by its public improvements, no tably the parks. Poor old Philadelphia and the entire state of Pennsylvania for that matter will continue to flounder in the mire of political corruption. The slow rate at which bonds are coming in response to Secretary Gage's latest offer indicates that the country is not so badly in need of cash as it was supposed to be. It is reported that the Santa Fe is about to erect a new passenger depot. Now is the time for the Commercial 'club to take up and agitate the matter of a union station. The time is coming when the country roads will be such that rural mail de livery can be made on bicycles or au tomobiles and the farmer need not wait much longer for his letters and news paper then the man in the city. American farmers and stock breeders have an excellent opportunity to make money for some years to come by em barking in the business of breeding horses for the use of the British army in Afirca. England pays a good price and is likely to be in the market as long as her money holds out. If Dewey or Schley had been sent af ter Miss Stone they would have had her at home by this time and that without petting foot on European soil. It might have cost more than $110,000, but there would have been something to show for the expenditure besides the probability that it would never have become neces sary to do it again. The principle of extending govern ment aid to fairs has become so firmly fixed that it is not surprising to note that the promoters of the Pan-American exposition contemplate asking the nation to reimburse them to the amount of $3,000,000 on account of losses sustained by reason of small attendance and large expenditures. There is an abundance of money in the treasury and it is not at all unlikely that con gress will be found In a yielding mood; if not this one then the next. Let a precedent once be established and it will not take long for the habit to be come as firmly fixed as that of grant ing a subsidy to every city that ap plies for one for the purpose of giving a. show. A certain Indiana man was arrested for the one hundred and seventieth time in fifteen years last Wednesday. During that period he has spent 1,439 days in jail and has cost the county In which he resides just $661.65. One hundred and thirty of his arrests were for drunkenness. The unfortunate man is 65 years old but in appearance is not over 45. The man is believed to be a record-breaker in his line and War saw, the town where he resides, chal lenges any place of approximately equal population to produce a citizen who has as high a score of arrests to his credit. The authorities of Warsaw should be able to tell the remainder of the country what god has been ac complished in those 15 years. GLOBE SIGHTS. IFrom the Atchison Globe. 'A third person always tells.

At 3:23 p. : Mr. Rayner closed his argument for Admiral Schley. Admiral Schley was in tears as he de livered his peroration. A wave of ap plause swept over the room as Mr. Rayner concluded. The court then ad journed until 2 o'clock tomorrow. During the passage-at-arms between Capt. Lemly and Mr. Rayner, the for mer accused the latter of attempting to traduce the reputation of an officer. This, he said, he had no right to do. "And you," replied Mr. Rayner, "have no right to traduce the reputation of Admiral Schley." While Mr. Rayner was discussing the testimony of Lieut. Commander Potts before the Schley court of inquiry this afternoon he said that the commander had said that he always was "scared in battle." Capt. Lemly protested against this language, and a sharp ver bal encounter between the two occurred when Capt. Lemly said that Mr. Ray ner was unreliable. ""You." replied Mr. Rayner, "are not onlv unreliable, but you are offensive." Admiral Dewey interfered to say that the court would consider all the testi mony that Lieut. Potts had said that he was scared but that Mr. Rayner had stretched the testimony a little. There was. however, no occasion for ascerbity. Capt. Lemly then said he regretted hav ing made the remark and Mr. Rayner continued his speech. Referring to the Hodgson controversy CaDt. Parker said that he really De- lieved Hodgson desired to tell the truth but unfortunately he had told a ctir ferent story every time he had opened his mouth. Capt. Parker said he did not know how the alleged controversy over the danger of colliding with the Texas arose except from the story which had been told by the captain of the Iowa. The speaker was very sar castic in his allusion to Capt. bvana alleged statement regarding the damage he had done to the Spanish ships. Capt. Parker concluded with a glowing tribute to Admiral Schley. Mr. Rayner began his argument at 11:25 a. m. He paid a compliment to Judge Advocate Lemly and his assist and, Mr. Hanna, for the "most judicial impartiality with which they have man aged this case." Mr. Rayner made a plea for the con sideration of Questions from what was at that time Commodore Schley's point of view. "Let us," he said, "put ourselves in his place and see what the circum stances were. We know now what it would have been wise to do." Discussing dispatch No. 7 known as the "Dear Schley" letter, Mr. Rayner contended that the order conveyed in that message made it incumbent upon Commodore Schley to remain at Cien fuegos. He declared that this was the key to the whole case and that it did not admit of any other construction than that Commodore Schley should re main at Cienfuegos.. He declared that Admiral Schley was the victim of an unfortunate combina tion of circumstances that left him in total darkness as to the loca tion of the Spanish fleet. Concerning the question of coaling at sea, Mr. Rayner read the testimony of several witnesses to prove the great difficulties such a task involved. He said that all they wanted to prove was that Admiral Schley was honest when he informed the department of his in creased anxiety regarding the -coal sup ply and that he acted according to the dictates of his own conscience. He was prepared to prove that one ship could not have followed the Spaniards six hours and have had enough coal to return to Keir West. - Coming to the reconnoissance of "May 31, Mr. Riiyner contended that it had been Commodore Schley"s chief intention to develop the Spanish land batteries and in this, he said, he had been eminently successful. He claimed that the man who was in command at such a time should be given great discretion, for he must necessarily know more of the situation than the gentlemen who make out battle plans at norne on charts with compass and lead pencils and direct other people thousands of miles away how to tight a battle. TINY FEET NO CHARM. Mme. Wu Says Chinese "Women Are Dropoing Old Practice. San Francisco, Nov. 6. Fashion is less capricious in China than in any other part of the world, but. even there a sentiment is growing in favor of al lowing women's feet to grow to a larger and more nearly normal size than has hitherto been the practice. In China the small foot has been for woman the mark ot artistic caste, but it seems a change is coming, slowly of course, as all changes come in China, but percep tibly. This on the authority of Mme. Wu, wife of the Chinese minister at Washington, who has just returned from a visit to her Oriental home.' For Wales Hospital Fund. New York. Nov. 6. The exhibition of Prince Chiggi's Botticelli, which is now owned by Mrs. John L. Gardner of Bos ton, has opened in London for the benefit of the Prince of Wales hospital fund in the Colnaghi gallery, says the Tribune's London representative. The critics unite in pronouncing it one of the Botticelli's most charming works, the background of hills and river being considered as beau tiful as the Madonna herself and the at tendant angel, but the process of judi cious renovation is regarded with signs of suspicion. The cause exists in the blood. In vhat causes inflammation of the mucous membrane. It is therefore Impossible to cure the disease by local applications. , It is positively dangerous to neglect it, because it always affects the stom ach and deranges the general health, and is likely to develop into consump tion Many hare been radically and permanently cured by Hood's Sarsaparilla. It cleanses the blood and has a peculiar alterative and tonie effect. K. Long. California Junction. Iowa, writes: "I had catarrh three years, lost my appetite and could not sleet). My head paiaed me and I felt bad all orer. I took Hood's Sarsaparilla and now have a good appetite, sleep well, aad have no symptoms of catarrh." tSoOtSQ fJTFI fit J ft Promises to cure and keeps the prom ise. It is better not to put off treat mentbuy Hood's today. OVER 75,000. Chairman Dick's Latest Esti mate of Nash's Majority. Columbus, O., Nov. 6. Chairman Dick at noon gave out the following: "We have heard from 53 -counties, S5 still being out. These 53 counties show net Republican gains over the election for governor two years ago of 27,175, which added to Nash's plurality in 1S99 makes a Republican plurality of 76,738. Cuyahoga county is among those not yet reporting and that county is still claimed by the Republicans although the Democrats claim it by 73. But with Cuyahoga as a stand off, the net net result would be a loss to Nash. "Jones carried Cuyahoga county two years ago and Nash had 13,914 ov?r McLean, deducting this from 76,;38, Nash's plurality in 53 counties would oe 62,827. Then if the other 34 counties maintain the ratio of the 53 that, are in the plurality for Nash will be over 75, 000 and probably over 85,000 for the rest of the Republican state ticket. "With Cuyahoga county conceded to the Democrats the Republicans havt 21 of the 33 state senators and 70 of the 110 repre sentatives, with a probable increase when the other 34 counties have re ported." Since noon Chairman Dick, on the per centage oi gains, estimaieu tne j-i miss ing counties, and this indicated that com plete returns mav make Nash's uluralitv over 85.000 and the rest of the ticket con siderably above that figure. Cleveland, Nov. 6. Complete election returns from Cuyahoga county give Nash (Rep.) 31,741; Kilbourne (Dem.), 32,010. Kilburne's plurality, 269. The Democrats elect their entire leg islative and county ticket with the ex ception of Hatfield for judge of the common pleas court, who is defeated by Phillips (Rep.) Phillips' plurality is 1,687. Cincinnati, Nov. 6. Unofficial returns received here from 81 of the 8S counties in Ohio show a plurality for Nash, Re publican, for governor, of 55,248. The seven counties not heard from gave Nash two years ago a plurality of 5,878. Assuming that this plurality will be the same this year Nash's total plurality in the state would be 61,126. MAJORITY OF SIX. Claims of Maryland Democrats on Joint Legislative Ballot. Baltimore, Nov. 6. Chairman Van devir, of the state central committee, when asked if he had any confirma tory reports as to the alleged Demo cratic victory in AUeghany county, said he had not. "I am prepared to believe It, how ever," he added, "and will be mighty glad if it proves correct." Asked for his figures on the general assembly, Mr. Vandiver said: "We will have a majority in the general assem bly of six on joint ballot and will have no difficulty in organizing the lower house. This estimate does not include Cecil county, which we are inclined to concede to the Republicans." Later advices from Allegany tend to confirm the reports that the Democrats have mad5 sufficient gains there to give them a fair chance of securing the legis lative delegation, at least in part. It is regarded as certain that Lewis. Dem ocrat, has been elected over Roman. Re publican, for senator by about 200 ma jority. Whether the missing districts will alter this result remains to be seen. At Republican headquarters in this city the defeat of Roman is conceded, but it is claimed that the rest of the legisla tive ticket is elected. The Republicans also claim gains in Talbot. Cecil and other counties, which they assert will give them 40 votes in the lower house and en able them to organize it. They are in clined to admit the election of Isaac Loeb Strauss. Democrat, in the Second legisla tive district of Baltimore, where he ran ahead of his ticket. Several precincts are still missing in that district and it is possible that they may elect one other Democratic candidate there. Not a word has been heard from St. Marys and Prince Georges counties as yet. Both are close counties, with Re publican tendencies. FROM MISS STONE Letter ReceiTed Dated Oct. toy U. S. Consul. 29, Washington, Nov. 6. The state de partment received a cablegram from Consul General Dickinson at Constan tinople saying that he had received a letter from Miss Stone, the missionary held by brigands for ransom, lated Oc tober 29. Sofia, Bulgaria, Nov. 6. The brigands having Miss Ellen M. Stone, the Ameri can missionary and her companion, Madame Tsilka in their custody were in Bulgarian territory near the Turkish frontier last week, according to author itative intelligence. The captives were lodged in caves and fires were lighted to protect them from the severe cold. Since then the brigands and the women have gone to some place unknown. The fact that violent measures, sucn as mutilation, to extort ransom, were taken, indicates that the brigands are under the impression that the longer they wait the better will be the terms obtainable. ' This attitude is regarded as being partly due to the publicity given to the subscriptions toward tne ran som, and it is increasing the difficulty exDerienced by Consul General Diekin- son in his efforts to reduce the brigands.' demands.

England is Heartily Disliked by AH Except United States. New Tork, Nov. 6. According to the London correspondent of the Tribune, Englishmen have been noticing with surprise the bitter resentment existing in Germany caused by Mr. Chamber lain's casual reference to the Franco Prussian war. It is a straw showing the direction of the wind in Germany, where, in spite of the emperor's cordial relations with the reigning house here, England is regarded as an industrial enemy and is not liked. This revela tion of anti-English feeling in Germany strengthens the desire of public men and the press in London for a settle ment of all outstanding questions be tween England and America. An ex pression commonly heard that good feeling with America will be worth more than the closest alliance with Germany. The objection raised by Canada to a settlement of the canal controversy is attracting attention, but the hope is entertained that Premier Laurier's in fluence will be exercised and that there will be no opposition from Ottawa to embarrass the foreign office in opening a way for the adjustment of the entire series of Caradian questions. TO MELT CHINESE CANNON. Germans Will Dispose of Ancient Bronze Guns. New Tork, Nov. 6 Regarding the dis position of the 175 ancient bronze guns just brought from China to Germany by the steamer Krefleld guns which formerly stood on the walls of Pekin, the Berlin correspondent of the London Times and the New York Times says: The most ornamental of the guns will be placed in the naval museum at Berlin.
