Who Wouldn't be Rich, Notwithstanding?
The troubles of "the rich" will never cease until they make volun tary restitution of their ill gotten goods to the gentlemen who with red hot pokers write resolutions for the j Socialist Labor party. For several; months orators of the Simpsonian school have thundered that the ] Money Power was conspiring to pre- j vent a war with Spain ; thundered so ! loud and often that probably some of them have come to believe them selves. Now the State convention of the Socialist Labor party of Ohio be whacks the war as a wicked invention of "the rich," brought about by them for their special benefit and the furth er confusion of the wage workers. Clearly the position of "the rich" is untenable. They can't give satisfac tion, whatever they do or refrain from doing. They will have to go out of business.— JVac< York Sun. Deafness Cannot be Cured by local applications, as they cannot reach the diseased portion of the ear. There is only one way to cure deaf ness, and that is by constitutional remedies. Deafness is caused by an inflamed condition of the mucous lining of the Eustachian Tube. When this tube gets inflamed you have a rumbling sound or imperfect hearing, and when it is entirely closed deaf ness is the result, and unless the in flammation can be taken out and this tube restored to its normal condition, hearing will be destroyed forever; nine cases out of ten are caused by catarrh, which is nothing but an in flamed condition of the mucous sur faces.

William A. Stone for a series of debates. He isn't particular where the debates shall occur. He is will ing to spout in some of the large cities, at the county fairs, or to use the slang expression "any old place." The preacher candidate suggests that the merits of the evidence submitted shall be determined by a count vote of the audience. In issuing his challenge he says: "I submit for discussion these two simple proposi tions : "First—Resolved, That under the management of the present Republi can bosses, aided by a few Democra tic managers, the state has lost large sums of money, and the taxpayers have been unduly burdened. "Second—That there is strong pre sumptive evidence that the Capitol was fired by emissaries of the bosses. First, for the purpose of destroying documents that might convict the bosses of these thelts ; and, second, to furnish an opportunity for other large thefts in building the new Capitol." A Growing Evil- Talking with a well known dry goods merchant recently, the con versation turned to what is becom ing one of the most vexatious prob lems the merchants of to-day have to deal with. It is the demands made upon thein for charitable pur poses. " This is becoming such a bother," said the merchant, "that it causes me more worry than my entire business." Some of the re quests are for money, others for the donation of prizes. Still others ask that the merchant decorate rooms and halls for church fairs, and the army that asks them to take adver tising space in leaflets, church re ports ;md magazines is almost count less. He said that in some cities merchants post large signs in con spicuous places which answer perti nent questions. For example, here are some that have fallen to this particular man's atteution. "Do we subscribe for charitable institutions? No." "Where do we advertise? In the weekly newspapers." The merchant with whom we talked stated that there is in some cities a professional pleader for charitiy who receives 20 per cent, of whatever she may be so fortunate as to col lect. The number of children poisoned as is supposed by ice-cream in Will iamsport Saturday afternoon at a Christian Endeavor rally is much larger than was reported and the number is now estimated at nearly one hundred. Some of the children are reported to be in a critical condi tion. The complaint of which the children are victims is known in medi cal parlance as tyrotoxicon, the result of the use of milk before the animal heat has had time to evaporate.

HALF CENTWY SINCE JICAAINA-, TIOTJ FO.t THAT I> VTiin One >f Tl, Or rt Amri')c:iiM Wlum* Fate l \Vn t br . rut In Their fny in the 11. arts niul Kitt.oiu of Tlit-lt* Countrymen, Yet Minwd the Presidency The fiftieth nnniv°rsary of the nomi nation of Lewis Cass to the Presidency reminds us of when annexation was an issue in American politics. General Cass was one of those great Americans whose fate it was to be first in their day in the hearts and esteem of their countrymen and yet who wero never destined to reach the Presidency. He was a candidate in 1844 for the Presi dential nomination which fell to James K. Polk; again when the annexation of Texas was the issue and once bk/tb in 1852 while representing Michigan in the United States Senate. ; The northwest is said to he the fioafeS child of the republic, and if so, General Lewis Cass was its putative father. A great portion of his life was devoted fe introducing settlers, popular govern ment, modern habits of life and'legal methods of procedure luto the Uve deserves an abiding place in the his tory of American statesmen. Politically considered Cass lilte Hen ry Clay and James G. Blalno was from the standpoint of the statesman better qualified by experience and attain ments for the executive office than any Americanizing this immense region he states north of the Ohio River. In man of his day. He was also the man for whom the people would doubtless have voted if the choice had been theirs, but he was apparently too timid, too fine-grained and too scholarly a man to find favor with the caucus and the ring. He was a jurist and pleader of national reputation, a soldier who had seen service in the war with Eng land under General Hull, an adminis trator of affairs first as Governor of Michigan and later as Secretary of War and finally as Minister to France. As a statesman whom Lord Brougham thought it necessary to cross swords with Cass in his day and throughout an extended career proved to be a prudent cautious legislator who could have brought ripe experience and rare at tainments to the Presidency, had he been elected in 1848. / The defeat of Cass and the election of Taylor are principally interesting now because the annexation of new ter ritory and the desire of the people for expansion and for a foreign policy dif ferent to that of the whimpering whlgs, was the chief cause which told in the National Democratic Conven tion. Cass was a man of argument and of peace. Taylor was rather a man of action than of argument who favored the Texas war and who despised these mouthysieal niceties and ethical prin ciples which are usually the stock in trade of the peace at any price party. Cass had negotiated no fewer than twenty-two treaties through which were secured the cession to the United States by the various Indian tribes what is now the great northwest. Tay lor, too, had led the Texas campaign and had brought into the Union but in the opposite direction, viz., the South west, a country as large as France. Southern interests were then predomi nant and though Cass was the plumed knight- of peace chiefly from the circum stance "that he had made effective reply to Lord Brougham in the Senate, and had resisted the English right to search American vessels, nevertheless General Taylor's policy won the day and he was elected. On the first attempt of Cass to reach the Presidency he was not an active candidate. His name had been put forward by his friends, and everywhere throughout the Union there was a general acquiescence as to his fitness, but Polk triumphed at the con vention. Cass then took the stump vigorously for him throughout the can vass. In the following January Cass was elected to the Senate. But pre vious to the second attempt Mr. Cass made no secret of his Presidential in tentions and in order to fit himself for the campaign he resigned as Senator for Michigan to thus meet his fate a second time. He was then 66 years of age and hud accumulated a large pri vate fortune. Cass was then jjrobably the richest man in the Union and had for an American attracted unusual at tention in Paris by the sumptuous na ture of his living, and by his social entertainments. Seeing the failure of his earlier attempt, and how by follow ing the weak-kneed foreign policy of the Whigs he had been superceded by a dark horse like Polk on the previous occasion, Cass now made himself the special champion of the famous "Fifty four, forty or fight!" demand which a statesman than a mere politician he tickled the hearts and aroused the highest patriotism of the people throughout the homes of the north west. He had early seen the impor tance of Americans possessing Canada, and in December, 1845, Senator Cass had introduced a resolution similar to that of Senator Chandler's in October, 1825, holding up the spectre of war, and insisting that nothing but conces sions or sensible precautions could pre vent armed collision with Great Brit ain. From henceforth he was the leader of the "fifty-four fifties" or the jingoes as they would now he called. Accordingly in the campaign of 1848 Cass became the hot favorite of the Democratic party. But being more of was defeated, the question of "Squat ter Sovereignity," and incidentally the hostility of British interests having contributed to the confusion or disrup tion of the Cass contingent. There were "Barnburners" and "Free Soilers" and "Cotton Whigs" and "Conscience Whigs" and "Heuekers" and "Democrats" and "Roundheads," while the great central facts stood out • against Cass that he had wabbled with j Webster on the doctrine of annexation Jln 1844 and that he had flirted with THE COLUMBIAN, BLOOMSBURC. PA. the question of State's rights, but abort all WSB Van Buren'S opposition. It was the often-expressed opinion of \®UUam H. Seward that' Van Iluaen never committed but one fatal error In politics, and that waz when, aurbing resentuieai at h.s failure to secure the nomination iu 1844, he permitted a wing of his party to nominate him as a hopeless candidate In 184S, thereby en tailing just what v.as Intended to be entailed, the defeat of the Democratic candidate. General Cass was never greater than in the hour of his defeat by General Taylor in 1543. Me looked upon him s!t merely as the representative of his party, and took his defeat with perfect composure and without resentment. It was the party which was defeated, and net Cass, the man, in his opinion, and the simple dignity with which, after having served for a time in the Cabinet cf Buchanan, he retired from public fife to his home in Michigan, was a beautiful indication of tho man's real greatness. Ju the Senate, however, he wielded a powerful influence, and with Henry (flzy opposed the claims of the south ern states to such an extent that Cass will always be considered one of those great Americans who built up this na tion and who furthered policies calcu lated to strengthen It in the North and to free it from the cauße of slavery In the South. Webster, Clay and Cass are a trio of American statesmen who graced the Senate or the office of the Secretary of State and who even If none of them ever attained to the Presidency, worth ily maintained the traditions of this country a generation ago. He was not a Washington in National significance, nor a Lincoln In Administration, nor a Grant in arms, but he was a true American who stood up against Lord Brougham and Clarendon for the rights of his country. He was a man of sound Judgment. Physically he had a largS figure, with massive head, firm mouth, and features that bespoke earnestness, animation, Americanism and personal and political integrity. The career of Cass Is tho more ap propriate study Just now because some of the difficulties he confronted and some of the policies he advocated may become of live Interest as a result of the present war. Some Notes of Intrreit. It Is a curious fact that the honey bee was never known In the United fitates till imported from England. Prof. Reginald A. Fessenden of the Western University of Pennsylvania has just completed a portable X-ray apparatus for use by the surgeons In the Held during th 6 war. The appara tus is as large as an unabridged dic tionary and will weigh about twenty five pounds. It Is to be operated by a gas-motor of like weight, and the generator will be one of the smallest ever employed in practical work. The apparatus will supply X-rays of suffi cient quantity and Intensity to enable the surgeons to see through the body, and should prove a valuable adjunct to the equipment of the field hospi tals. A few facts regarding the Whitehead torpedo may be of Interest at the pres ent time. This Instrument carries 220 pounds of wet gun-cotton, and weighs ready for service 1,160 pounds. Its maximum length Is 16 feet 5 Inches, and Its greatest diameter is 17.7 inches. At a speed of 28 knots per hour it has a range of about 850 yards. The tor pedo is driven by compressed air at a pressure of 1,350 pounds per square inch, which operates a three-stage en gine. As a result of experiments by chem ists and engineers of the British Ad miralty, it has been decided to supply all ships equipped with water-tube boilers with delicate hydrometers and nitrate of silver solution for the de tection of the presence of salt In the feed-circuits. The presence of salt in the water-tube boilers has long been a cause of much annoyance to naval en gineers, and it Is hoped that by fre quently testing the density and pres ence of salt In the water, produced by evaporation, or formed in the main condenser, It will be possible to keep boilers and fittings in proper condi tion. De Simply Direct*. There Is a man-cook In London who Is said to make an Income of over |lO,- 000 a year. He is not attached to any one hotel or household, but goes from house to house during the London sea son. Early In the evening he sets out from his own home In his brougham and drives to the house of some rich person who is giving a dinner-party. Arrived there he goes at once to the kitchen and tastes every one of the dishes that are to appear on the table, ordering a little more sugar to be put Into this entree, a pinch of herbs here, a dash of salt there, and when every thing suits his palate, he pockets his fee of five guineas and drives away to the house of another dinner-party giv er, where he goes through the same process with the dishes there. He vis its many houses each night, and in some Instances has carefully arranged the dinner beforehand, merely looking In at the last moment to see that his Instructions have been "properly car ried out Be Didn't Set Wet. A Scotchman was once advised to take shower baths. A friend explained to him how to flt up one by the use of a cistern and colander, and Sandy ac cordingly set to work and had the thing done at oncc. Subsequently he was met by the friend who had given him the advice, and, being asked how bo enjoyed the bath, "Man," said he, "it was fine! I liked it rale weel, and kept mysel' quite dry, too." Being ask ed how he managed to take the ehower and yet remain quite dry, he replied: "Dod, ye dlnna, surely, think I was sae daft as stand below the water without an umbrellal" , ■ vx36uiti THE EDITORS ORGANIZE.

The Mortgage Still Unpaid- One ot our exchanges from a neigh boring county tells of a man residing there who mortgaged his farm to buy his wife a pair of diamond ear rings. The wife was greatly pleased with the precious stones and willingly took in washing to pay the interest on the mortgage, but the first job she was unfortunate and lost one of the "sparks" in the soapsuds, whereupon she went to the lam and tried to hang herself, but the rope broke, and she tell on a Jersey cow, valued at SSO and broke its neck. Her hus band then undertook to end the cow's misery by shooting her, but the gun burst and destroyed his eyes, and his wife ran away with a lightning rod peddler. The mortgage is still there.
