JAN. 26, 1902 It seems clear, from Washington dis patches, that it is the intention of the administration t o NATION TO , strongly support a PURCHASE bill providing for the TELEGRAPHS? purchase of the tele graph lines of the country. A bill for the purpose is in preparation and will be introduced in the senate shortly; As the president said in his message, "The tremendous and highly complex Industrial develop ment which went on with ever accel erated rapidity during the latter half of the nineteenth century, brings us face to face at the beginning of the twentieth with very serious social problems," and it appears to be his be lief that a step will be taken toward the solution of some of these problems by - the government taking over the telegraph lines. It is proposed to issue 30-year 2-per cent bonds in exchange for the stock and bonds of the Western Union Tele graph company, and the Postal Tele graph company. An immediate reduc tion In telegraph tolls from 10 to 20 per cent will be promised the public, and it is estimated that notwithstanding this reduction 3 per cent of the earn ings will create a sinking fund which will take care of the bonds, the sys tem thus paying for itself in the end. It Is "authoritatively stated" at Wash ington that the Postal stockholders and the Gould interests in the Western Un ion have been consulted and are willing to sell, and will not oppose the meas ure. The existing law makes the sale of the telegraph systems compulsory whenever the government desires to purchase them. The total capitalization of the Pos tal and Western Union telegraphs ag gregates $171,000,000. divided as follows: Western Union Stock. $92,000,000; bonds, $22,000,000; leased line stock, $11,000,000. Commercial Company which Includes the Postal Telegraph lines Stock, $24. 000.000; bonds, $22,000,000. Dividends on this stock now average 5 per cent a year, and 3 per cent is used as a sinking fund. Those making com putations for the government estimate that an enormous saving in. expenses can be made by cwieofidattoYf of offic'esl and in other ways. The proposition to purchase is said to be based on a ma terially higher price than the stock is now selling for, Bince the higher price of copper and other material would make it impossible to duplicate the plants on the basis of the present mar ket price of the 'securities. It is explained that the Goulds, par ticularly, are quite willing to sell, as they have recently gone into the bank ing business on a large scale in New York as Well as throughout the terri tory covered by the Gould railroads, and their banks require government bonds in large quantities to increase circulation. The bill will, of course, bring out a great deal of discussion, but it is thought that the chances for its passage are good. . Many republican senators are quoted as favoring the purchase of the telegraph lines if they can be ac quired on a fair basis of value. It will be amusing, however, to note the squirming of democrats in the senate and house when the bill comes up. for while they feel bound to oppose every republican measure, they are pledged by their party platform to favor gov ernment ownership of the telegraphs. It would be an embarrassing predic ament for Uncle Sam should he acquire the telegraph systems of the country just in time to see Marconi or Tesla perfect wireless telegraphy. Marconi promises that his system will be in per fect operation across the Atlantic ocean within six months, and Tesla, who is working oh the same problem with dif ferent apparatus' and upon different principles, is tipped by some scientists to beat Marconi to the goal. If wire less communication across the oceans is to be firmly established within a few months it would be rash to predict that the land will not also be covered, ' sooner or- later. The country . generally will not look with approval on the disposition of " certain members of the DANGEROUS house committee on FINANCIAL coinage, weights and TINKERING, measures, to tinker with the. financial sit uation in the manner that they propose. The proposed bill directs the secretary of the treasury "to exchange gold for legal tender silver dollars." It Is a proposition which' has never been ad vanced in any national republican plat form, and it would be a mistake to adopt the new scheme now as a party measure. - . The menace for the welfare of the United States in the "silver Issue" was the democratic scheme of free and un limited coinage. Free coinage is now such a dead issue that even Mr. Bryan no longer refers to it. The silver now in circulation goes readily at par, and will for all time to come. If the stock is not Increased. It cannot be said In any sense to constitute a danger to the stability of the nation's finances, and could not do so. In view of the vast stock of gold which has accumulated under republican rule. The government has never conceded the right of a holder of silver to demand gold from the treasury in exchange; both coins have circulated on their "own hook," notwithstanding the belief of many intelligent people that silver dollars were redeemable in gold. A new danger would be invited, however, should the government announce that it proposed to redeem with gold on de mand the $r,30,722.617 of silver . dollars and silver certificates. The "endless chain" of which so much was heard during the last Cleveland administra tion, would be established with a ven geance. It is true that so long as the country remains prosperous the pro posed new legislation would probably work no harm, and in practice the pub lic would know nothing of the law. But should crops fall for a peries bf years, and should the balance of trade set in heavily against the United States, with hard times in the wake, the temptation of speculators to with draw gold from the treasury vould find the machinery all prepared for quickly removing any gold reserve that it would be practicable to maintain. Ex porters of gold, armed with a law re quiring the exchange of gold for silver, could create a disastrous panic any time they saw fit. Statesmen distui-bed by the "parity" bugaboo should seek some less harmful process of tinkering with the country's finances. To be sure, the good faith of the , government most properly Ib pledged to keeping the two metals on a parity but that parity is not In danger under the republican policies of an adequate gold reserve and hostility to unlimited coinage of silver. The eastern estimate of Arizona could not be more tersely expressed than In the remark of former Mayor Bob Wright of Dodge City, quoted in our dispatches yesterday, when he sated that Mr. Daniels would be the proper marshal for "the Arizona toughs." The eastern idea of an Ari zona citizen is a desperado "shooting up" a town. Should Mr. Daniels serve as United States marshal for the ne-t score of years he would probably never have occasion to arrest a "bad man." The offenders against the United States comprise in the main. Chinamen evad ing the exclusion laws, and sneaking. chicken-hearted boot-leggers who sell whisky to Indians either clas3 of which could be arrested by a woman. Mr. Daniels no doubt possesses many excellent, qualities, for he enjoys the confidence and friendship of the pres ident, but his personal bravery will hardly have occasion for emphasis in the office of marshal. Were he a county sheriff it might be different, for ser ious crimes against the local laws oc cur in Arizona as in the sta.tes. It is news of :r.or than ordinary in terest to the grape growers of the Pa cific coast that phylloxera has appeared once more in French vineyards, this t'me in the district of St. Denis, in the department of the Seine. The discovery has caused all but a panic, for the French wine growers are only now re covering from the great losses brought by phylloxera In the sixties. Even now thi; vines in the Charentes, rrom where biandy comes, are feeble. The outbreak of phylloxera a third of a centry ago has proved to be a greater loss to France than the Franco-Prussian war. I -c fore the failure of the vines the curse of drunkenness hardly existed in France, b"ut, not being able to get cheap, good wine, the workmen took to spirits, .and they seem now to have lost thtir liking for the juice of the grape; while the richer classes took to beer. The consequence is that in addition to the increased intemperance, a direct lfsf. of great domensions has resulted for the vine growers. Ex-State Treasurer Bartley of Ne braska loaned the state funds to his fr'ends' to tide them over the panic of He was charged with embezzle ment. He made a plain statement of what he had done, but he refused to reveal the names of the persons who had the money and he was sent to the penitentiary for twenty years. He ac cepted the sentence with stoical forti tude, went to the penitentiary and served a portion of his sentence. Fin ally the truth leaked out. Public senti ment rallied to his side and the gov ernor pardoned him. - Since his release lie has taken an inventory or the notes and obligations given him by the men who borrowed the state funds, and as these obligations are not outlawed by the Nebraska law, he Is proceeding to make collections. It is announced that he has already a considerable sum which he will pay over to the state and that he will soon discharge his entire indebtedness. Mr. Sibley of Pennsylvania, in his speech against extending the aid of the government in the reclamation of the arid lands, voiced the narrow spirit of the east. He insisted that the nation, in opening new farms under Irrigation, would "offer a poisoned chalice to the lips of eastern farmers." Narrow as is the spirit which Congressman Sibley has displayed. It is only too true that he is only one of the many congress men representing farming constituen cies who will oppose all' measures look ing to bringing the arid regions into cultivation and supposed competition with the east. In face of the opposi tion to all Irrigation legislation already cropping up, Arizona will be exceed ingly fortunate If the initial appropria tion is made for the San Carlos reser voir. The well meaning opponents of the Chinese exclusion bill will find some in teresting reading in the reports of a California legislative committee of 1S77-8 as to the social and moral condi tions existing among the class of Chi nese who form the bulk of the immi grants from that country. Unfor tunately the most instructive portion of the testimony is unfit to be printed, bur it showed that the class being im ported was a menace to the morals and htalth of the white race-. The manners and methods of the Red Light district of New York were taught by Chinese servants to the ycjung of both sexes In the households where they were em ployed. This was one of the causes of the hostility the people of the Pa cific coast to the Chinese, and condi tions have not changed. TTie discussion that has been stirred u- by the republication of the old story of Mrs. George Peabody Wetmore's Cu-clination of a left-handed invitation to lunch with the Prince of Wales ex tended by an actress, suggests some expert opinions on the prince that were frankly expressed by two distinguished Americans. John L. Suiiivan of fistic fame was presented to the prtnee on the occasion of his trip to England, and he has announced emphatically ever since that "the prince was a perfect gentle men." Similar evidence was brought Iwi k by a banjo player who went to Irfndon when that Instrument was all the rage there. He said: "The princp had the manenrs or a gentleman and he's all right." The Manufacturers' Record declares that the south has become a manufac turer on a billion and a half dollar scale. According to preliminary census figures the value of the products of its factories in 1900 was $1,468,669,495. which was greater by nearly $450,000,000 than th value of the products of manufac- tures in the United States In 1850. The tctal for 1900 shows an increase of $549. 440 468 over the total of 1S90 in the value i c,f products, and of $491,847,237 in the amcunt of -capital invested, which in : l!-0d amounted to $1,153,670,097, against ; $f..-f.795,860 In 1810. The cable brings the highly important information that a Ftir was created in London by the announcement that King KUward had appeared in a frock coat with deep, turned-up velvet cuffs. Hundreds of fashionable men imme Clt, tely rushed to their tailors and or dered similar garments, in spite of their exiracrdinary novelty. Consternation now prevails, as it is learned that what tho king wore was a frock overcoat, on which velvet cuffs are often seen. LITTLE JAMES (The Marshalship Question Viewed from Both Sides.)

' , Mr. Joseph Kin henstcicr,7 Croton street, Clevelaad. O., say.,: "Wo hiTi used l'eruna for eiht years as our fam ily medicine. During the wholo of thai time we have not had to employ a ihy sician. Our famly consists of seven, and we also use it for the thousand and one ailments to which mankind is liable. We have used it in cazesof scarlet fever, measles and diphtheria. Whenever one of the family feels in the least ill, mother always says: 'Take Peruna and yoa will be well,' or if wo do not happen to have any, 'We will have to pet mere Peruna.' Peruna is always satisfactoiy in colds and coughs." Children are especially liable to acute catarrh. Indeed, most of the affections of childhood are catarrh. All forms of sore throat, quinsy, croup, hoarseness, and laryngitis are but different phases of catarrh. These affections, in the acute form, may pass away without treat ment, but they leave a foundation for chronic catarrh in later years. Even a slight cold is acute catarrh, and ren ders the mucous membrane of tho head and throat more liable to chronic ca tarrh urter wards. Tho child is con stantly asailcd wintcrand summer, with catarrh. Affectionsof tho stomach and bowels, colic and diarrhoea, are due to ca tarrhal derangements of these organs. A great many families are learning by bitter experience that these affections inuet be promptly treated or the child's health is permanently injured. Peruna id the remedy. No family should bo without it. As soon a9 the symptoms of cold, cough or any other affection of the throat or stomach is noticed, Peruna should be given accord ing to directions. A vast multitude of families are relying entirely upon Pe runa for safety in this direction. There ara no substitutes. Peruna is the only systemic catarrh rerr.tov known to the medical profession. That Peruna can be relied upon is evi denced by tho great number of testi monials which Dr.Hartman is receiving daily. Only a very few of these can bo published. Only one in a thousand.
