'oama have a dl3p!acerv jfrom. This shows the rsmarkV Jze of the pro posed cruisers, tons, or naarly 2.000 tons heavier than the largest ves sels we now have, though these are battleships; heavier than the Illinois, the Wisconsin, or than the new Maine, Missouri or Ohio, all battleships under construction. Future increase in the size of battleships may be expected to follow the construction of 13,5C0-ton cruisers. The Brooklyn, our present largest armored cruiser, has a displace ment of only 9,215 tons. Great speed and coal endurance and heavy batteries are to be the strong features of these cruisers. To attain those objects there will be increased horse power and improved machinery and boilers while 10-inch guns, hither to only used on battleships will be mounted The protected cruisers proposed will be larger than any of their class pro posed hitherto. They will be more than 1,300 tons heavier than the Maine, though that ill-fated vessel ranked as a battleship. The new gunboats will be of less than eight feet draught and will be intended for service in the Phil ippines where they will be of value not only in war but after the war Is over. This is the programme for 1900. The building up of the new navy is to go forward. When Hernandez decamped from Caracas Immediately after the victor ious entry of Castro, the POOR new dictator of Vene-VENE- zuela, there was the ZUELA ! prospect of a continued revolution there. The outlook, to be sure, seemed bright for Castro to crush the new pretender a3 he had smashed the old government. He looked like a sure winner and the atmosphere was not as heavy then as It might have been under ordinary South American revolutionary circum stances. But Hernandez has developed unexpected strength. He has won a battle ani occupied a city, that of Mar acaibo, capital of the state of Julia, and there Is no telling what the result will be. The fickle public may turn to him as it turned to Castro upon that leader's first sign cf success. Hernan dez is a familiar figure in Venezuelan affairs, and, so peculiar are the doc trines of Venezuelan politics, he stands a good chance to draw support from the Andrade party, just ousted by Cas tro, notwithstanding the fact that An drade had imprisoned Hernandez as an enemy to his government. Castro re leased Hernandez from prison at Cara cas when he entered the capital in triumph. Thus the new rebel leader violated the logic of the situation at the outset by turning upon his liber ator, and a similar revulsion of senti ment may make him the Idol of his late enemies. Subsequent events of the new insurrection will be watched with perhaps more Interest than anxiety, f jr the people of this country have come to take the South American revolution too much for granted to be concerned in such affairs save as spectacles of an unrest which do no material harm be yond the confines of the countries in volved. In the early part of 188) then; were 60,873 telephones under rental in this SOME country. In the later ' TELEPHONE part of 18D8 there . FIGURES. were 1,124,846. The Increase has varied from 4.46S a year to nearly 130,000. The total increase in the period Indicated has been nearly 1,100,000. The greatest increase was in the past year. The telephone exchanges have meanwhile increased from 408 to A Vh 11. I8BO. 1 V ' announced . It con- r ine uuiiu- I I ... r f f f ovsr 2,100. There are nearly 1.200,000 miles of wire in use in the telephone service. In 1883, there were 1,223 miles of wire under ground. This year there are 35S.1S4. In lh&5. one per cent of the exchange wires were underground. Now about fifty per cent, are under. It is estimated that the total number of connections made between points in the same exchanges on the last day of 189S was 3,823,070. Multiply that little figure by 3C5, and take a sense of the extent of telephone talk in the country. Eesides this, about 30,600,000 extra terri torial messages were sent in 1S93 be tween towns. The average number of calls at each station in the country is 8 1-5 a day. All the companies operat ing under the Bell patents had, up to the close of 183S. expended $111,159,302 for construction and real estate. These figures suggest somewhat the dimen sions the telephone business has al ready acquired; and it is said to be growing now more rapidly than ever before. New York has quit worrying about the question of beer and is discussing a cargo of doubtful coffee. This is a pleasant assurance that the metropolis does not confine itself to one beverage. Some of the economical burghjers may feel inclined to resent the lavish and ineffectual manner In which Gen eral Joubert has been burning amuni tion. Richard Croker insists that his .opin- tha.ll have weight In determining ther David B. Hill is a practical king democrat or not. lere will be a carnival next winter 1 it will be a better one than the one just closed, which means it will be a world beater. The Congressional Record ought to think seriously of livening Itself up with a few page3 of good, brisk adver tising matter. Arizona newspaper editors who did I hi; aLieuu uitr uanuvui navy no ntcnar to belittle it, as some of them are try ing to do. The people of Arizona should give all the aid possible to the statehood move ment. The sinews of war must be sup plied. Every member of congress i3 now at the period of the session where he stands at the big end of the telescope. The congressman behind the speech will now send a few volleys echoing down the corridors of time. NO CREEPING HERE. Of course, Tom Waller, is not one of those gold democrats who are creeping back to the temple of the silver calf by the postern of anti-imperialism. He tells a Times reporter that "Just so sure as the democratic national con vention declares for 16 to 1, just so sure will Connecticut's electoral vote go to the republican candidate next year." He says that the "people in Connecticut are not bothering them selves much about it. but there are very few democrats in that state who would consent for a moment to have the United States troops evacuate the Philippines." He .believes that no Connecticut democrat who voted against free silver In 1896 will vote for it in 1900. Tom Waller is incorrigibly courageous and straightforward. He doesn't hanker for fatted calf or silver calf. He will come back to the demo cratic party when it comes back to I democratic principles and not a second sooner. N. Y. Sun. THE NAIVE EOEP. DISPATCHES. Some Funny Littl Touches an Old Newspaper Man Discovered. "I am extracting a good deal of amusement from the South African war cablegrams," remarked an old newspaper man the other evening. "Take that affair of the armored train near Estcourt, for Instance the official narrative contained some delicious touches. It told how 'Sergeant Todd' constructed a large barricade of boul ders in front of Captain Wylle, who had been wounded, 'and then,' it add ed, with charming naivete, 'the ser geant lay down beside the officer to cheer him up.' Isn't that delightful? I can picture Sergeant Todd, who is no doubt a plump warrior, with pop eyes and a double chin, hugging that barricade of boulders while he cheered up his despondent superior. Todd has set an admirable example to the Brit ish officers who were recently re proached for reckless exposure during battle. If they will henceforth devote themselves in cheering each other up a la Todd instead of making cigarettes under fire, the mortality will be re duced 100 per" cent. Another incident In the Estcourt story, which I found very entertaining, related to 'an old Blackwatch veteran named Crow.' Crow, it seems, had shown conspicuous courage in clearing away the wrecked trucks, whereupon 'Lieutenant Wins ton Churchill, amid the hail of bullets, turned to him and shook his hand, call ing him a brave old man." Of course, that was very nice of the lieutenant, who, as you know, is a boy of 19, or thereabouts, and sen of the late Lord Randy,' and I dare say, the eld soldier touched his helmet and said, "Thankee, sir,' in a voice choked with emotion. An English friend of mine is very en thusiastic over the episode. 'It was so doocid plucky of young Churchill.' he says, 'to stand there shaking the old chap's hand and congratulating him on his courage, while the bullets were fly ing all around them.' 'Sure,' rail I. 'and equally plucky of Mr. Crow to stand there being congratulated. If a man were to stop rr.e amid a hail of bullets to offer me the assurances of his distinguished consideration, I would Instantly plead a previous engage ment.' Anybody who says that the war news 13 diAll and uninteresting uov.a- a 1 days, don't appreciate good things when he sees 'em." New Orleans Times-Democrat. THE CONGO CANNIBALS. Women Do the Cooking, But Cannot Attend the Feasts. An English traveler, B. C. Do TTo'f, recently visited a curious tribe in the Congo, in the district of the Oubang'nl, the N'Sakkaras, whose chief is the fa mous Bangasson, to whom the Bel gians have given the title of sultan. The N'Sakkaras are scattered along the territories between the Koto and the Bali, on the right bank of the Oubanghi. He tells this interesting story about them: "We were not abie to learn, even approximately, the number of these N'Sakkaras, but from the infor mation we gathered there must be more than 23,000, most of thsm women, owing to the slave trade and the con stant sale of male adults and boys. With the exception of hunting, the men leave all manual labor for the women, who, though looked upon as slaves, usually are well (treated. The women cultivate the maize fields and sweet potato plantations and make the tribe's favorite drink, a kind of beer, out of the eleusme and sorgho, two varieties of native hops. "All the tribe's enemies killed in bat tle, or members of their own-iribe be headed by order of the sultan, invari ably are eaten. The women usually are not allowed to be present at thes? cannibal feasts, though they Invariably do the cooking. The N'Sakkaras have a great partiality for the flesh of wo men and children, which is partaken of only on solemn occasions, such as the marriage of a son or daughter of a chief or after the conclusion of a treaty of peace with a powerful neighboilng tribe. "All the N'Sakkaras whom we saw were peaceable and amiable, with none of the exterior characteristics which popularly are supposed to belong to cannibals. Unlike most other Congo lese tribes, the N'Sakkaras have a rudimentary form of organized govern ment, with an army under the corn man! of a single chief, the Sultan Hangasson. All the able bodied un married men are enrolled in the sul tan's army. The elite of this army, 300 in number, form Bangasron's body guard." Kansas City Journal. DICKENS ON DEWEY'S CASE. This is what Dickens has to say on the Dewey case in his "American Notes," written in 18!2: ' You carry, says the stranger, thi3 Jea'ousy and distrust into every transaction of pub 11s life. By repelling worthy men from your legislative assemblies, it has bred up a class cf candidates for the suf frage, who in their every act, disgrace your institutions and your people's choice. It has rendered you so fickle and so given to charge that your in constancy has passed into a proverb; for you no sooner set up an idol, firm ly, than you are sure to pull it down and dash It into fragments; and thi3 because directly you reward a bene factor, or a public servant you distrust him merely because he Is rewarded; and, immediately apply yoursMf to find out either that you have been too bountiful in your acknowledgements or he remiss in his deserts. Any man who attains a high place among you from the president downwards may date his downfall from that moment." CALUMNY. The naval hero was wounded to the quick by this latest ea'umny. "It was not enough to accuse me of having hidden behind the conning tower during the battle!" he exclaimed, with emotion. "They must needs fur thermore insinuate that I have noth ing tattooed on my arm!" Then he cursed the day of his being beguiled into politics. Detroit Journal. MORE THAN LIKELY.

By the stroke of Titan hurled; From off the far horizon's "tee" 'Tis driven 'round the world. And Venus looks in wonder. And the war-god redly blinks As the big white ball goe3 sailing high Along the starry links. It soars o'er cloudy bunkers That seek its flight to .stay. And in its path it creases swift The misty Milky Way. And when it has completed Its course across the sky On wonder hilltop of the west It finds its distant "lie." Where waits a giant player Who "lofts" with steady aim. And so without a pause goes on The everlasting game. Jennie Betts Hartswick in Life.
