If you owned property in a Chinese Settlement, would you not
employ the servlcos of a Chinese Agont becauso bo understands tho
habits and characteristics of his own people.
The samo logical reasoning should obtain in this instance. Sure?

HEARST AGAINST BRY?N
Hb Will Also Oppose Roosevelt and
Johnson If They Are Candidates.
INDEPENDENCE LEAGUE ALONE
Will Name lt8 Own Candidates for
Presidency and Offices of Various
States?Editor Declare* Strength
Shown Will Surprise Old Parties.
NEW YORK. March 7?The author?
itative announcement by William It
Hearst that the National lndepcnd
onco League, of which he Is the con?
trolling spirit, will not. In the ap?
proaching presidential battle support
Rooaovclt, William J. Bryan, or Oov
Johnson, of Minnesota, but is to go
it alone, nominating Its own presi?
dential ticket, was food for political
gossip hereabouts today.
Tbc announcement was interpreted
to moan that Mr. Hearst's league will
not support any candidate to l>o nain
ed by the Republicans at Chicago or
any candidate to bo nnnted by the
Democrats at Denver. In addition to
naming Us own presidential ticket. It
is understood the Independence
Leagues of the different states are to
name state tickets as well.
Will Name State Tickets.
Mr. Hearst's National Independence
league, according to the announce?
ment made February 22. Is known a^
the National Party, and Is to have
Its national convention nftor the Re?
publicans and the Democrats have
adjourned. Mr. Hearst made this ad
ditlonal announcement:
"The Independence party Is going
to nominate Its own candidate for
President, nnd Is going to vote for
him with a strength and a heartiness
of numbers that Is likely to be a reve?
lation to the older nnd sadder politi?
cal organizations. If it does not
elect Its candidates in this election It
Is going to 'lay tho solid foundation
for doing so In the next."
Pleasing to Republicans.
The Republicans who discussed
Mr. Hearst's announcement wcro in?
clined to believe that, with a candi?
date of the Denver convention in tho
field and the Natlonnl party's candi
date in tho field, the Republican can
dldate to be named at Chicago would
bo mighty sure of election.
The Democrats who upoko of (Mr,
Hearst's announcement Bald that it
would be n very wlso man indeed who
at this stage of the game could come
within gunshot of guessing the vote
that Mr. Hearst's candidate for the
presidency -would poll In November.
NEW YORK'S THUGS.
THInk Nothing of Taking Human Lifej
for a Few Dollars.
The thugs of tho river front have
made good Commissioner Dlngham's
startling words. No longer ago than
Monday, a man who had received $6
In payment for some work was fol?
lowed by assassins, who were aware
of the exact amount of his stake, nnd
was foully murdered for the same.
When human life is hold at so low]
a valuation one must conclude that I
tho terrors of the death penalty for|
murder have vanished.
? It ought to be Impossible for such
debased specimens of the human race
lb exist in New York. They ought
to be hunted down, as scorpions and
Gila monsters are sought In our Iron?
ical deserts, and killed at sight. Stiels j
hybrids should not he allowed to en?
cumber the eurth. Tho electric chair]
should ? bo worked overtime, if neces?
sary, to rid the world of such mon-|
sters.
Assassin's who will commit murder
for any sum of money, large or small,
should be discovered In advance of
tho commission of such crimes. This
remark does' not apply to professional
burglars. They do not enter upon
their nightly labors with specific in?
tent to do murder. They are well|
satisfied to get away with a reasona?
ble amount of plunder. Only when
cornered do they shoot to kill. Not
long ago we dwelt upon tho folly of
grappling with a midnight marauder.
A thousand times better thnt ho help
himself than that you or I force hint
to the alternative of capture nnd a
long term In prison or the taking of
our lives.
Again, remember this. If y"ou see
a burglar before ho enters your home,
get your gun and wait. The Instant
he raises a window or unlocks a door
to enter, shoot to kill. Don't allow
your conscience to trouble you there?
after any more than you would per?
mit it to ilo had you alain a rattle?
snake or a ferocious L?ast.
All respectable people In New York
ought to nnn.?Julius Chambers, In
the Drocklyn Eagle.
Could See Through Flannel.
It was in a small town in the sunny
South. A lyceum entertainment was'
hilled for tho evening, and as a ma?
gician and sleight-of-hand performer
was advertised as one of the princi?

mammy began to squirm about. Then

SAID TO CLEAN
IMPURE BLOOD
Valuable Prescription to Mako Home
Remedy, Said to Be
Very Fine.
A leading health Journal, in an
Bworlng tho Question, "What is the
best proscription to clean and purify
the blood," prints In a rccont Issue
the following: Fluid Extract of Dan?
delion one-half ounce, Compound
Knrgon one ounce, Compound Syrup
Sarsaparllla throo ounces. shake well
and use in teas)>oonful doses after
each meal and ai bedtime,
It cleans the blood or all Impuri?
ties nnd nourishes the ldtxid. In just
n few days the skin begins to clear
of sores, bolls and pimples, it puts
vigor and energy Into run-down, de?
bilitated men and women. For many
years Sarsaparllla alone has boon
considered a good bloojl metflrtno.
But while It built up and made- now
blood, the impurities remained with?
in nnd the good accomplished was
only temporary. Sarsaparllla, how?
ever, when used in eomblnatlon with
Compound Knrgon and Extract Dan?
delion workB wonders. This combi?
nation puts the kidneys to work to
filter nnd aift out the waste matter,
uric acid and other Impurities that
cause disease. It makes now 'blood
nnd relieves rheumatism and lame
back and blnddor troubles.
This prescription is better than the
usual patent medicines, which are in
the moat pnrt alcoholic concoctions.
Tho Ingredients coat but little and
are easily mixed at home. Every man
and woman here shohld mnke nome
up and try it If they feel their sys?
tem requires a good blood medicine
and tonic.
-neighbor assured her, telling her the
magician wouldn't hurt her.
"I knose dnt." she said, "but dla
hain't no place fo' a 'spectable cullud
lady, wlf only a calico dress on."?

NO LICENSES FOR DISTILLERS.
Thla Will be Result of Grand Jury
Investigation In Warren.
FRONT ROYAL. VA.. March 7.?In
the grand Jury term of the Circuit
Court of Warren, which has jimt otid
ed, Judge Thomas W. Harrison came
down hard on several distillers of the
county who are alleged to have con?
ducted their business in a manner
contrary to law. The result of the
Investigation of the matter by the
grand jury will be that no license will
fod operating a barroom. Alexander
be granted to distillers In thla coun?
ty In the future.
Out of five distillers In Warren
county practically three havo been
indicted. One entered a plea of guil?
ty and waB heavily fined. John Duke
and Ollbert Manuel, distillers, wore
indicted on a number of counts, it
being alleged thnt they havo boon
running their distilleries in much the
same way thnt the l-irrooma nro con?
ducted. They will be tried at a later
date.
Oeorge Alexander, the clerk for Mr.
Shcnk, another dlstlllci was Indicted
entered a plea of gulny, and Judge
Harrison Imposed a fine of $4f>0 nnd
costs, amounting to $ir>0 more, and
In addition sentenced him to serve
two mouths in Jail. Tho jail -sentence
wag suspended pending his good be?
havior. '<
Mr. Hearst as a National Figure.
Mr. Hearst's denunciation of boy?
cotting as criminal and un-American,
the studied respect with which re
receives tho recent decisions of the
Supreme Court and his apparent
condemnation of privilege as the
right or appanage of any special class
have attracted marked and favorable
attention throughout the country and
are undoubtedly going to prove an
important factor at Don vor. Just at
proncnt lie Is the only figure In the
field to divide discussion with Mr.
Bryan, and the interest he inspires,
will increase rather than diminish
from this time onward. Besides it
may be that Mr. Hearst's personal or|
moral character being superior to that ;
of -Mr. Bryan his association of hlm-l
self with ideas of constitutional and
conservative import may prove to
hove a widespread and far-reaching
influence.?New York Sun.
The Betting Evil.
Thero are only two sides to the
betting evil, or the gambling evil,
whether on the racetrack or else?
where. If you win, you are falsely
exhilarated. You have your spirits
tremendously cheered up, and count
tho cost of nothing. If you lose, you
are Billy in the Low" Grounds. You
are unnaturally depressed. You are
blue and disheartened. Yon spend
your last cent on whiskey to cheer
up?then go home trroke and charge
it up to your wife and children.?
