It were a grievous fault, , and Mr. BonrwEWj would bo Justified In calling upon "tho laboring population of i tho country" to opposo tho ro-olcctlon of Mr. MoKotlcy.

Tho foot Is that expansion Is an abso lute Industrial nocoeslty for tho United States. Manufactures have been developed to a point whero tho surplus, and vast stir- i ' plus, must be disposed of In foreign mar kets.

" Ho "promises, If elected, to wago a rolontless war against bosses," and gives no sign of surrendering his own robust bosshlp. i Is it posalblo that at tho vory beginning of his canvass Mr. McLean wishes to throw away thoso noblo vote-bieedlng proposi ti , tlons about tho "secret and vicious alll- i nnoo with England," and that "tho war In S tho Philippines, oh at present conducted, is d ono of criminal aggression?"

I After tho expedition reached tho Gran M Clmco, or groat plain of Northern Argen- Una, nothing could bo learned of B Its fortunes, nnd thoro was reason H to fear It had met tho fata of many H predecesfcorn. A lellof party, sent up tho H river, has ruturned with nvs oonflrmlng Hi tho worst forebodings. InRiiETA nnd his B t party woro murnercil by Inillnns of tho H Gran Chneo, and tho barn announcement of Ht their fato is all that has yot been cabled, Ht 3 Explorois havo been trying for oer ono Hff l hundred nnd soonty yearn thoroughly to Hf jf I'xplorolhla stream and none hasmieceeded. B J rrobajily no other river has so completely B i ballled pioneer mterpriso or been tho scene B t of ho many trngedleq. B , The PUcomnyo Is tho largest western trll- B i utnry of tho Taraguay Hlvor.

That B f country coulil thus Hhlp its produots to tho K i; Atlantic nnd establish easy comtnunlca- BF tlons with nil tho Atlnntlo coasts of tho B! Americas and Europe. Tho Argentine Oov- Bf ' ornmout has nsblsted in tho explorations, BJ v and tliu aim of evory effort for twenty years Bj pant him been to rcseuo liollvla, it possible, Bt from lier isolation. H . Tho fact Is well established now that tho V f Pllcomayo Is nvailablo for steamers for BJ ,' only a small partof Its course. This con- Bj elusion was roaehod through tho efforts of H ; a number of ciplorors, for no ono man has H I over soon the wholo ilvor. Nobody sup- BJ -i posed that the explorers of tho past tuenty- BJ live ycniH would be as completely Imflled in BJ ': tho attempt as wero tholr predecessors of BJ f tho eighteenth century. H 'I When tho Jesuit PatiSo, with sovonty t priests nnd a largo escort of Spanish Au sold low, first pushod up tho river In 1721 BJ W to combino conquest nnd missionary entor- H pi iso, ho was stopped by tho Toba nation of H J,' tnu Gran Chaoo. Tho Tobas chased him B j down stroam. Twenty years elapsed beforo B i the Simniards hud any inclination to renew H f rooeiirch on the Pllcomayo. Then another B mlh-'nu.iry expedition led by CastaRahes B it a-cfiid.-d tho rlvor for nearly threo H h umnilw without reaching Bolivia; upon n B Becond nttympt that party was murdered B ' to a man. After a long interval BoLiVAit B started a military oxpoditlon down tho H $k river and It mado tho discovery' that the H jt Pllcomayo grow shallowor Instead of B g dsepor nnd tho Indians bocamo fiercer. H Tho expedition mado a sorry retreat homo- H ward. Tho Bolivar Oovornmont sent out B I anolhor, only to meet with a similarly dla- Jf," astrous oxporlenco. Pllcomayo explora- Hff' tlon was then abandoned by everybody for BBi, two generations. B The untimely death of fow explorers has H ' ; been moro deeply lamented than that of tho H. , brilliant CnsvAtrx, who had won tho brlght- Bj est laurels by his discovorlos lu Guiana and Hfw 0 the upper Amaron tributaries. Ho H MlBtolWSomtliiMroamB.-otttier! HattliBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBi comayo, and It was believed that ho, If any man, oould map the rlvor to Its mouth. But he and almost his entire party woro killed by tho same Tobas who had massacred tho Spaniards long beforo. Fontana followed, but was compelled to retreat after reaching the edgoof thbTobn country, and Feildeiio, later, who ascended 100 miles, was glad to oscnpo with his lifo. TiioiMn and CAMros led tho two noxt expeditions from Uollvln. Though they descended tho river for a long distance both woro com polled to abandon It and roach Paraguay ovorland. Tho next victim was tho Amorlcan, Capt, John Paoe, who mot his traglo fato In tho sorvlco tf Argentina. Ilo ascended tho rlvor for soveral hundred miles In 1800, fnvorod by tho high stage of Its waters, and when tho water fell ery low ho adopted an Ingenious plan for making further progress. Ho bulftadam behind the llttlo steamer and tho waters thus collected euablod him to advance several miles. By moans of seven dams ho ascondod thlrty-flvo mllos, but could go no further. Beforo relief camo, five months later, Pxor. and most of his mon had perished of starvation after suc cessfully repolllng tho Indians who had repcatodly attacked thorn. It Is time fully to rccognlzo two Important facts about tho Pllcamayo. Only a small army of good Indian fighters can travol from end to end of It ; and tho river Is use less as a highway bocauso It flows for hundreds of miles over a plateau so flat that a current Is scarcely pcreoptlblo, and tho result Is that most of tho water evapo rates beforo It reaches tho Paraguay. Rcpubllcnm nnd Catholics In Itnly. Llttlo attention has boon thus far paid In this country to tho fact that, this sum mor, slnco the prorogotlon of the Parliament of Italy, tho Constitution of that country has been suspended. That is to say tho Cabinet headed by General Pblt-ottx is governing In defiance of thn provisions for bidding a censorship of tho press nnd protecting tho right of publlo meetings whloh are lmboddnd In tho Slatuto, or fun damental orRnnlo law, Tho Republicans have naturally drnwn from this net of usurpation the Inforonco that tho monarch al systom 1ms broken down, and General Bicciotti GABIHAL.DI, who nspircs to lead them, has defined the progrnmmo which ho would follow. What ho pioposes Is tho cooperation of Republicans with tho numerous Catholic voters, who heretofore, havo held nloof from the bnllot-box, for tho purpose of substituting for tho Savoyard monarchy a Federal republic, under which, ho says, tho Interests of the Papacy would havo at least a bettor chanco of being fur thered than they havo now. Tho violation of the Italian Constitution committed by tho Ministry now In power startles patriotic Italians, not becauso It is unprecedented, but becauso it is applied to rights which aro universally recognized as lying at tho root of popular self-government. The Slatuto which was granted to his subjects In 1848 by CnAnLns Alukkt, King of Sardinia, and which remnlns tho Constitution of tho Kingdom of Italy, con tains no provision for the emendation of Itself. It was, for some time, supposed that any changes In It would havo to bo mado by n constituent assembly, but, grad ually, nn opinion gained ground that tho political institutions of Italy, like those of England, could bo modified by tho ordinary prooars of legislation. Such n modification hns been nctually effected on several occnslons, and now both Jurists nnd statesmen aro agreed that un limited sovereign power resides In thn King and Parliament. No ono denies, therefoie, that tho provisions for tho liberty of tho press nnd tho right of publlo meeting could hnvo boon suspended by a bill which passed both Houses ond received tho assent of tho Sovereign. Such a bill was. In fact. Intro duced, but It was referred to a commltteo nnd had not reached a vote In the Chamber of Deputies when tho rnrllnment wns prorogued. Nevertheless, tho Ministry nnnounced that they should exorcise, dur ing tho recess, the power of suspending tho liberty of the press nnd tho right of publlo meeting, and they have done fo. It is true that, for this arbitrary course, thero are Fome ostensible precedents which n people allvo to tho dangers of Ministerial usurpation would never have tolerated. On varicais occasions, n Cabinet hns been per mitted to mnko temporary laws, which were to be submitted to Parliament later. ns, for In'-tnnco, when n tariff bill was in troduced, thn Ministry wns nllowod to pre vent by decree large importations before thotnrlff wont Into effect. Tho final text of the recent Criminal Oodo wns never su1 mltted to tho Chnmliers at nTl, but, after thn subject hnd been debated, thn Govern ment was authorized to make a complete draft of tho code, nnd then to enact It by royal decren, talcing Into account tho views expressed by tho Chamber. Tho samo anticipation of tho action of tho LeglRlatuio was condoned In tho case of tho Electoral law of 1882, of soveral recent laws on local government, nnd of many other minor enactments. If these prece dents nrn scrutinized, however. It will bo found that none of them Just Hies tho sus pension by the party lu power of rights so vital to self-government as tho liberty of tho press nnd tho right of public meeting. Thero la no doubt that had such rights been buspondeil in Franco by a mere Ministerial decren, It would be universally felt thnt tho Parliamentary system had committed sui cide, nnd that nothing was loft to tho people but tho nssei tlon of the right of revolution. Thn extro-constltutional position taken by tho Prlloux Ministry Is, naturally, mado the pretext for renewed agitation on tho pnit of thosn Republicans who, like Gon. Iticciom (KltlHALW, leliove thnt tho needs of the Italian Peninsula and Sicily can bo l letter answered by a Fodoral Re public t inn by a centralized monarchy. Tho Republicans, howovcr, aro well uwuro that even If aided by tho Socialists, they would bo too weak, numerically, to undortako a constitutional agitation, with tho aim of gaining a majority In tho Chamber of Deputlos. Might they not, howovcr, gain such a majority, could they effect a coalition with the Catholio electors who must constltuto from ono-thlrd to two-fifths of the wholo electorate, ns Is shown by the difference between tho number of registered voters and the numbor of votes actually oast at any Parliamentary elec tion? The Catholio voters, It must bo remomberod, take part In municipal and communal elections, but are forbidden by the Papacy to vote at any election for a member of the Chamber of Doputles. If this prohibition woro rescinded, nnd the Catholic votors wero advisod to codporato with tho Republicans nnd Socialists, thero is no doubt In tho mind of nny unprojtidicod observer that the coalition would secure a majority In tho popular branch of the Italian legislature. What would tho Catholics havo to gain by such a combination 1 Ooneral Gauidaldi '4uunrerihatj lMf ther would kav, nothing to loso. Tho Papaoy cannot bo worso off than It Is now. Ho does not pro tend that the City of Romo would evor bo handed back to ecclesiastical authority, but It Is concoivnblo, although ho does not say so, that tho so-called Loonlno City, with a strip of land bordorlng tho Tiber as far as tho soaooast, might bo conoodod In full autonomy to tho Papaoy by a Foderal republic, whereas no suoh concession Is llkoly over to bo mado by a centralized monarchy. It la also suggested that thotonant of tho Vatican could not fall to profit by tho romovol from Romo of the ovorshadowlng dignity of a rival sovereign and the substi tution of the relatively modest attributes of tho President of a Fodoral Republic. Ho would profit also by tho release of his par tlzans from a position In whloh thoy aro dobnrred from tholr natural shnro In publlo life. Moreover, a Federal Constitution, which could only bo amended with groat difficulty, would afford hotter guarantees of independence to tho Papaoy than does n, mero statute passed under the present monarchy, subject, ns It la, to tho oaprlcos of Porllamcntory majorities. It Is not alleged by General GAnnui,Di thnt tho coalition, which ho advocates, bo twoon Republicans and Catholics would glvo tho latter all that thoy desire. Nclthordoes ho fnll to rccognlzo that it would moot with opposition In tho ranks of tho Democrntlo party, dominated as this Is by Anti-Clerical proclivities. On tho whole, however, iho Is confident that tho alllanco will bo concluded. "That," ho has said, "is whero the solution of the problem Is to bo found. That Is whoro salvation llos for Italy." Automobiles In tho Army. With automobiles In uso as delivery wagons, as racing and pacing vohlolos, as carrlagos for collecting tho malls and for accomplishing many other purposes, It is not strango that tholr proposed uso on tho battloflsld Is discussed with consldernblo Interest. About two yoara ago Lieut. Jameh A. Moss, of tho Twenty-fifth Infan try, sent a dotnilod report to tho War Department of n military bicycle expedition from a point In Montana to St. Louis, and his report constituted a strong recommen dation of tho wheel's uso In actual warfare Now, according to tho Chicago Daily Ntxra, it is proposed to experiment with tho auto mobile In ordor to determine what advan tages, If nny, nro possessed by It over tho blcyclo nnd tho vehicles commonly employed In wnr. Tho Chicago newspapers report that Major R. P. Davidson, of tho Northwestern Mili tary Academy, will stnrt for Washington on Sept. IS "with an automobile cannon carrlago carrying a Colt automatic gun:" "Thts sun h just been cnmploted by the Ditb irAKOt Peoria, III. It will tie propelled bj- , eli. haree power caiollne motor, e,a 1 Ite weight ! about 1,000 pounds. The cot will be eomethtnc like 1.600. It will have three rubber-tired wheele. two behind and one In frjnt. with eeata orer tho rear aile for (our icunnerit, elda bara betas; ptoUdeil aa nn a gun cataton, to whlrh the men mar cllnc when the cannon carrlago la driven into action. The pun in carried on a triangular frame In front of the aeat with a muzzle pointing forward, o that the gunners mar npirato It with the carriage golnKthlrtr mllee an hour. The bolj-work of tbta vehicle ha already been thoroughly tested, in that neither Major Dvtreoi nor the manuractnrera hava the Iiast doubt that It will make the trip to Wash ington and draw up before the War Department with a mesesgo for Secretary Root in as good condition aa it was when the company started." It Is said that 2,000 rounds of ammuni tion will accompany tho gun, together with "all of tho necessary tools for repairing breakdowns, some duplicate parts where weakness is suspected, nnd a supply of gasoline sufficient to carry it for several days." In addition, n dovico will bo at tached by which the machlno may bo oi trlcnted from ditches and other places In surmountable by means of Its own power of propulsion. Major Davidson expects to provo thnt tho automobile would be of very groat valuo for tho purposo indicated. Some of tho advantages claimed for It aro swift ness of locomotion, Inconsplcuousness, tho promptness with which it can bo brought Into firing position, nnd tho compnrativoly small cost of Its construction. Its rapidity of movoment would bo ono of the strongest points In its favor. Another commendable feature, not possessed by tho bicycle, Is to bo found In the fact that on automobile would bo likely to keep right side up under all ordinary circumstances. Its serviceability, moreover, would not depend upon tho strength of its rider's muscles, and thero would be llttlo dnngor of a thlof taking tho mnehlno under his arm and making off with it unseen. It is reasonable to supposo, nlso, that It could not bo intercepted in its course ns easily as eoutd a bieyclo, and that if It should fall Into thn hands of persons unskilled in Its management its usefulness us an Implement of war would, to a large extent, disappear. Tho experiment of Major DvyidsonwIU bo well worth observ lng. If ho can do monstrnto that distances usually covered In a week In times of wnr can bo covered by automobiles in about two days, and that tho machines nro trustworthy under most conditions, his expedition to Washington will not bo In vain. Home ut Last. Tho Sprinuflehl Ttepublican, tho most epileptic of the antl-lmperlnllsts, Is now ready to enter tho homo for incurables. Wo learn from Its serried columns thnt although tho Immortal Williams, chairman of tho Commltteo on Resolutions for the Democratic Stato Convention, Is still abroad hating tliwgold standard, "it Is said to have gone out from thoso who will havo the shaping of tho platform that anti-lmperl-nllsm will bo tho main plank." Silver "will bo adhered to Just enough for a reaffirma tion of tho Chicago platform," but "the muln fight will bo against trusts and Im perialism." In ono of its editorial epilepsies the Jtepubllcan calls the tariff and monoy ques tions "pocket questions." Whoreas anti imperialism Is a heart question, wo pro sumo. At nny rnto, to that wild staring eyo thero Is nothing but Imporlallsm any where Tho earth is full of It, the sky is black with It, tho sea Is rod with It. It is the supremo and universal crime. There fore, spurning pockot questions, Gen. Samdo Bowles proposes to march behind tho Chicago platform, since tho whlto flag of antl-lmperialism Is hoisted over It. Domocrats, Populists, the Springjltld Re publican, and Inevitably the Boston, Brook line and Cambridge squad of Atklnsonlansl Hurrah for sixteen to onot Down with expansion, McKinley and tho American Array In the Philippines! It will bo tho best political peep show over shown. Wa congrntulato Gun. Homo Bowles on getting home at lust. It Is eurlous that tha Democrats of liUsls. slppl. a stirelr Damocratlo Htate, had tenet enough, to let tha Philippines alone while their bretkitn In other-fltater wt)i.rowlDE'wSjrpU with lereechlng ogalnat the war and ordering; that the I'hlllpplnee be Independent. The Mieiltilppl Democrats let the I'hlllpplnee olono ; laid not a word about thom in tho plat form. In the Democratic) party, ae It now Is, auoh retlcenco amouate almost to nonius. Gen. Adoxmam Judson Wahskr. the moat Intimate friend of silver, wae intercepted bra Pltteburc reporter, to whom he used thle regrettable language: "atcLtax Is running on his money." UcLkan Is running, or Is supposed to be, nn the Chicago platform and the Ohio plat form. Re Is running on the Initiative and referendum and the eight-hour taw. He Is running on a seoret and vlolous alliance and a war of criminal agzretslon and antl-bosslsm. But what has he to do with money? Wealth is for Republicans, den. Warmer should not slander the friend and champion of the downtrodden. According to the Piivmfnn-JVot "silver Is the Constitution ;" that Is, 10 to 1 Is not merely Sixteen to One, but a motto for tho defenders of the Constitution, We had not noticed that the Constitution was In peril, or that It needed any guardians at present. It must be admit ted that In the 8ixteento-0ne crowd it has the uuoereet lot of spocial policemen that was ever gathered together. The Jndfnnnpolis Rfntlntl will not be com forted. Nothing will be allowed to make It happy. This Is a period during whloh "there Is a semblance of prosperity." But slnoo 18U0 " the gold band line been tightened somewhat over the world." This it really the only ground that the believers In the Chicago platform can take. They must assume that there Is a som blance and will o' the wlspof prosperity, but that thero can be no true, lasting prosperity until the gold band Is tnken off. The semblance pleases most of us well enough, and the philos ophers of Illusion are welcome to bo llluded. Tho architect of the headlines In the Cincin nati Enquirer Is equal to his high duties. In letters of the awartest black he tells us thnt "tidings of a boundless joy como from every section of the State Democrats thrilled by the certainty of victory." The tidings of a bound leas joy come from Columbus, and among thom Is this boautltul collection o( metaphors: " There are no sore spots tn arise spectral-like from the graveyard of disappointed hopes." A great campaign, a campaign of boundless joyl The automobile is to be used la the canvass otoae of the candidates for the Republican nomination for Lloutenant-Qovornor of Massa chusetts. Uoclallst Ham Jones ot Toledo. Is going to beam upon tho Inhabitants of Ohio from the same vehicle. In ttmo, candidates mar take the automobile Instead of taking the stump. Mr. William J. Bhtan sometimes talks about things he does not know, makes state ments that are not so. and suggests policies to whose simple meaning and obvious result he Is blind. A. cans In point was his recent assev eration that there were more business falluros and bank failures In ths country In the six months after McKinlf.y's election than tn ny othor similar period of time before. An other illustration is his proposition, made in an oratorical burst before the Democratic Btste Convention ot Nebraska, at Omaha, on Aug. 22. that the proper viny of "llmltlnc trusts" would be to prohibit any corporation from doing business outside ot the Stato In which It wns organized, save under a llcenso from the Fed tral Government. Wt have been unable to find a verbatim ac count of Mr. Umax's speech, but the laming JJte ot Omaha putt what he tnld In this way: "Mr. Crtam then paid hla respects to the trusts and declared that when a law Is passed that will prevent a corporation from doing business ontslde the State In which it is orcanired wlthont a llconsa from thn Federvl Government, tha trusts can be effectively regulated," The irorW-rWd, of the same city, says: "The speaker declared that the trusts could 1o destroyed when the federal Congress would decree that no corporation should do business outside the Htate where It was organized, except by securing the license of the Federal Oovernmeut." Think a minute. Mr BbtawI What kind or a Government would it be under which no con cern could dc business outside the Htate where ltscbtof office was without securing the prm!s elon of somolrody at tho seat of Federal power? It would be the greatest schema ot imperialism, the most absolute tystem ot centralized power that the world has ever known. That sociological Bolomov, Trot. Oforoe D nERROM, elicited great applaube at the State Convention of the Iowa Populists by asserting that "McKini.it was a traitor and was per forming actual treason every day in his conduct of the Philippine war." Prof, ninnov is one of thn calmest thinkers among the antl Americans, and should be permitted to become a league himself. Call for am Issue of rrnctlonal Currency In Taper. Tn THie rnrron or Trnc fim-Wr' There Is a great and growing demand fur sn lsun by the Oov ernment of fractional paper currency, such as was used during thn war. It would be a great conven ience to all customers of stores doing a retail busi ness by mail, as we have to do when spending the summer at the seashore. It would avoid the risk and Inconvenience of what I am now doing, namely, sending a silver fifty-cent piece to pay for a month's eubieriptlon to TnsScK, the brightest paper In the United States. I re ide tn Washington and have a large acquaint ance among Congressmen. Will Tis Sex aid me and others In securing authorization of such an Issue? Aside from its great convenience. It would form a aouneof considerable revenue to the Oovermncnt. as a very large percentage ot thn amount Issued would be lost or accidentally destroyed or hoarded as a curiosity, and would never be presented for re demption. The proprietor of s err department or retail store In this country would applaud the plan. DirronT, L. I.. Sopt. 2. J. T. Onisoin. Trot. Joiephus Contemplative Tlprs.

The Demooratlo fStato ticket nominated In Zanostlllo on Wednesday was not put up to win, but to maintain tho coheslveness of the party organization nod to assure Mr. McLean's control of It for future exigencies and opportunities. Among tho futuro exigencies and opportunities may bo reckoned the Democratic National Convention ot 1000 and tha Senatorial vacancy In 100.1, whan the term of Senator Foraknr expires. Three ot the candidates nominated at Zsnes vlllo aro. or havo been, connected with tho newspapor press.

In the estimate of the rural Dem ocrats ot Ohio Mr. McLean Is not merely a plu tocrat, but he is an absentee-plutocrat and. what is worso, a ' kld-eloe" candidate, out ot sympathy with the aspirations of the bucollo ktatesmen generally, though tils consistent support of thesllvercause has modified tomoot tho objections to him without, hovreror, bring ing any new recruits. Tho personal objections to Mr. McLean aa a candidate are numerous, besldet. He hat an almost unlimited number of enemies, made In past times by the course of the JCnquirtr. and through factional conflicts In vhlch he hat taken part, from time to time in the State. He has another disadvantage that, while acthe for twenty-lHe years in Ohio politics, he hat navor before been a candidate for an elective ofllco before tho voters, though ht has fre quently been an aspirant for other nomina tionsPresident. Vice-President, Senator and lteprsentatlve. The hopes of Mr. McLean's supporters are' based upon somo very unstable political prem ises It is expected, for Instance, that the di version ot labor votes made for the eccentrio Mayor ot Toledo, the fighting Welshman, Jones, who is ostensibly a Republican, will weaken the Nash ticket. Theio are many labor Republicans In Ohio, especially In the large cities and in tho mining districts, and with any other candidate than McLean at the head of the Democratic ticket this element of, danger to the Republicans would be consider able, because tho whole ot the Jones vote would be drawn from that party. As it is. Mr. Jones will draw more Democratic votes than Repub lican votes In couseauenco of the antipathy to Mr. Mul.can, and it Is a question, therefore, whether tho Independent campaign of the Toledo Mayor will not actually Increase the Republican lead. Another point of dependence of the McLean managers Is, oddly enough, upon the colored tote o( Ohio. There are 25.000 colored jtors In Ohio, mostly In tho southern and south western counties. Many of them hao recently been estranged from the Republican party through the failure ot its leaders, as they claim, to accord adequate recognition to men of their race, and through the failure of Repub lican officials to protect tnem against tho fury of Ohio mobs of lynchers. Two years ago the colorod men of thn State held a eonentlon and nominated a complete ticket ot their own as a protest ngalnst oxistlng political conditions. The ZanesN llle convention adopted this plank: "We diplora the frequent and outrageous exercise of lyni-h law in this aud other Statts. especially against our colored citizens, and we recommend the adaption of prompt and efficient measures to sup press such unwarrantsd acts of violence." The ndoption of a plank f.iorablo to oolored men by a Democrats convention In Ohio is a de cided political nntlty. It is a novelty by no mtana agrueablo to tome of the old-line Dem ocrats ot the Interior, Ohio having been ont ot the few Northern htates which rejected the Constitutional Amendment for negro suffrage ; while the llrt success ae u State leader ot tha late Allen G. Thurman wui, attained as the Dam ocratlo candidate for (ioernor In 1807. when he inn on a plutform of opposition to negro suffrage, and the Constitutional Amendment providing for It was defeated. A Demooratlo candidate ot the present polltltal generation, dlaconnectod with previous controversies on the trfbjesst, might well this year, undtr existing conditions, txpeot to get tome support Irom colored voters, at Mr Hoadly did when elected Governor on the Damocratlo ticket a few yean ago. Mr. Hoadly had formerly been a hepubllcan, and his adAoeacyof theextenaloi "Hilrlghtt to colored men had mado him . (' popular among them Mr. Mcl.enn. on the other hand, has no such record, and tho A.'intin er has bei n uniformly reactionary, to the limit ot Intoler ance, on this question. Apart, therofore, from hopes based on tht Jones defeotlon and on colored support, there remains ot the McLean candidacy but one '.illtfcjol'elnBnto strnrtij,aj.elvi thtuop JBSJBJBJBJBJBJBJBJBJBJBJBJBJBJBB "S tM portunltr which Mr. McLean's nomination promises.

Undoubtedly Mr McLean Is not lacking In the meant requisite to equip the Democrat! of Ohio for an effective fight, but no amount ot monty, however disbursed, can materially change the political situation in a State whoreln the party lines nro clearly and closely drawn, and wherein the business Interests, manufact uring, mining, 'banking, transportation and shipping are solidly opposed to any rovlval of tht sixteen to one business, for which tho Zancsvtllo convention doclarod.

A Section of thn Tree I'ndrr Whlrh Qa Died to He Tnkrn to Kliglaml. The lowly straw hut In which thegreat explor er Livingstone died In the spring of 1873 stood where It was sheltered Irom tho glare of the tropical run by the widespread branches of a mpandutree. It was under this tree that his faithful followers burled the heartof their load er, cut tney carried the rest of hla body to the coast and about thirteen months after he passed away the mortal remains of Lhlngetono wero burled In Wostmlnster Abbey with nil the honor that Britons could pay to one of tholr greatest sons. In last) the Royal Geographical Society voted a sum of money which was expended In the following manner: A part of It was used to prepare a memorial tablet In bronze to bo nf flxed to the tree under which the heart of tho explorer had been burled. The remainder of the money wns expended In the purchaso of presents to be given to Chief Chltambo tn whose territory Dr. Livingstone died, as a rec ognition of tha ready permission he had given for tho removal ot the great traveller's body. The rresents were dellxerel and tho bronze plate was afllxed to what was tald to be Livingstone's trie by Lieut. Frano.nl of the Belgian service In 18)3. A later traveller found that the plate had been fattened to tho wrong tree, for he discovered on another tree tome distance away the rude Inscription which the servants of Livingstone, had cut on the mpandu, under which thoy had buried the heart ot their master. So tho plate was fastened to tho right treo and tho spot In cen tral Africa most hallowed by associations of tho greatest of modern African travellers was at last worthily commemorated. The inscrip tion on the bronze plate was simply: "Ltvlngitono Died Hern. Ilala, May lit. 1873." About threo yeart ago the spot was again visited by another white man. Mr. Foulett Weatherley. When he returned home to Eng land he tald he had found the tree In an ad vanced state of decay and he thought there wat no doubt It would disappear in a short time. In order to preserve some vestige of tho treo the Royal Geographical Soolety decided that the best courso would bo to cut out the section of tho tree that bears tho Inscription originally cut in it and have the section removed to Lon don for proservntlon In the rooms of tht so ciety. Tht opportunity has occurred this year for carrying out this project. Mr. Codrlncton, thn Deputy Administrator of northern Rhodesia, visited the place and secured the section ot the tree on which the Inscription may still easily be traced. A letter from him reached England the other day in which he said he was about to forward the section to the coast for shlpmeat to England. To mark the memorable spot he built a cairn of stones with two telegraph poles running up through the centre, and the poles are further held in place by stays ot telegraph wire. The bronze plate hat beon fastoned to the poles. 1 ho cairn will be tufflclent to pre serve the Identity of tho placo till a more per manent memorial can bt erected, and thlt Is certain to be done botorn a great wbllo. Only Two-Gnth Faith. From the Lahort Tribune. A Mnhamedan Fakir, by name Shank All, begged another Fakir nauiel Ilazurl, whom he believed to be possee'ed of extraordinary spiritual powers, among others that of reviving the dead, to exercise them In hla behalf, and get him wealth. Ilazurl said that he had not even a pie to give, but that If All fetched water fer tha thirsty, or begged bread and fed the poor and thedoga with It for a twelve month, Allah would grant him his request. Bhauk All had not thn patience to wait so long, and he said to. Thereupon Ilazurl replied that if All consented to have hie throat seabed thrice by his sword, ac cording to "the law," he could find himself before Allah, and then he could ask for and obtain the wealth ha wanted. Ilazurl himself had been treated similarly by his religious preceptor, and as a result he had the mystic power of the preceptor to do what he would In the world. Shauk Alt agreed, and lay down under a tree to receive LUzurTe gashes. Hut at the second stroke his faith evaporated and he cried out tn him to slip. Ilazurl stopped, though In distress and grief at thn want of faith which had lost All the advantages he wnnld hava secured with the third gash whin they were almost within his grasp. All waa In a pool of blood. And some vil lagers happsnlng to pus that way at the time led to nuuri's being taken Into custodr and put up for a trial on a charge of attempted murder. Ur.
