DEUEL AfiMNST EXTORTION.
All Washington- at least that portion of it
which uscsteleptionci isuphiarmsagaiust
the siiueezc which President Bryan of the
Chesapeake mid Potomac TeieplKino Con -pauy
proposes to pjt lulo effect on July 1.
The Inlerv lews pahlMie I in Tlie Times jps
terelay and today give a fair Idea of how
the public, anil eMieclully the prcspnt cus
tomers of the ceucpany, view the exorbi
tant charges with which they are threat
ened. In many instances business men
keep 'phones in their pljces more for the
convenience of their customers or for the
sake of inducing people to patronize their
stores than liecause of any personal use
they make or thein. The scale of charges
indicated by President Bryan would work
a great hardship to them, because it
either wJll increase their cxjienses be
joiiel all reason or they will be forced to
discontinue using the instruments. In the
one case their profits will suffer seri
ous!), in the other their patronage. )
In every place where a telephone is now
in use. w Ik flier it lie n lotri, a business
house a it.il estate broker's office, a drug
More or a private residence, the new scale
is regarded as an extortion, all the more
unjustifiable because "the price the com
pan) nun gets for its 'phones is already
far too high. So fir from the compau)'s
charges being Increased, they ought to be
reduced. In the course of the hearing
given him b) the Senate District Commit
tee President llr)nii statist, in repl) to a
question, that he ivou'il latler Congress
would grant u charier to a competing com
pany than Icduce -the prevailing rales.
Cougivss ought to take him at his word
and grant such n charter; but In order to
proyidc against all possible contingencies
it should also fix a scale of charges for
the existing monoiKily, reducing them, of
course, very much below the presentrate.
Apart from any action that Congress
might take In the matter, the customers of
the comiuny hac a reined) in their own
lunula. If they, or a majorit) of tlicm,
would agree to discontinue the use of the
'phones on July 1, in ease President llrj.ui
curries his threat mto effect, ho would
probabl) conclude that second thought is
best thought and consider it good Julie) to
let well enough alone. Some of those most
serlouslv afficted bv the projKised change
ought to take the initiative and seek to
secure something like concerted action on

Hill surprising to I.lbernln.
Loudiiu, May 16. There lias been much
discussion of late'ln high political and mili
tary quarters as to the course to bujiursucd
b) the British gSfernment to consolidate
Jiejr interests In South Africa, and to main
tain her position as the paramount powerln
that part of the world.
Agaiustthe opinion of Field Marshal Lord
Wolseley, comiiiander-ln-chictof her majes
ty's rorces. Gen Lord Roberts, and all the
other military authorities in England and
India, the government has decided against
availing Itselfajf the preparations that have
been nude for a war lu South A Trie J,
though some tinie ago it was considered cur
tain by those in the Inmost circleth.it South
.Africa would be the scene of au armed
conflict between the British and the con
solidated forces of the Afrikanders.
The political, and not the military con
sideralions, were too much for the cabmet
to brush aside lightly or otherwise. The
government has not "succeeded in forcing
Portugal to grant the ccucesslou of Dela
goa 11.1 y asm liaslc for British military
operations from the right of pre-emption
which Great Britain holds in respect of
The question of cost has been part of the
trouble. The five mllllou pounds sterling,
tlie first offer from England, has been
raised to twice that sum, with the further
quittance of the debt of Portugal due to
England, though the latter would herncrcly
a tiomiualqulttaticeluvicw of thelact that
Portugal has long since been released of
the debt by default.
REJECTED THE OVERTURES.
The Interesting point of the matter,
however, is that European intervention,
either that of Germany or France, or, per
haps, both, has obliged I'ortugal to reject
the British overtures.
The position at present, therefore, is
that if Great Britain sLouhl be forced to
conduct operations against the Trans
vaal she must, as the only practicable basis
for the dispatch of a large expedition
into the interior and for supplying it with
every thing necessary, use Delagoa Bay
without the consent of I'ortugal a pro
ceeding that with certjinty would result
in undesirable entanglements with cither
the Flench or the Germans.
ThCs- ieasous have undoubtislly much to
do with the decision of the government to
lie low ami see what the next move of tlio.
Boers will be. As before stated In the
cable correspondence It appears as though
President Kruger had cumplctelv check
mated Colonial Secretary Chamlierlain
nrd the othr irinls rs of Lord Salisbury's
government. An iJiglUh paper rccently
summri! up the situation by declaring that
Prc'nitlciit Kruger was only human and ex

1 make a mistake. This. Judging from
. present indications is not a contingency
of the near future.
The solidity of the Irish members of the

Editor Times, Will you iierir.it the un

dreds of vivisections, to assure the read

of the leading scientists or the clay, lie.'
eluding vivlsccti-.rjsts themselves, that
nothing but profound ignorance of the na
ture and objects of rivisectiou make that
atrocious practice iiossiblc at the present
day. The true object of vivisection is
seen in the following ciuntatlons from Pro
cessor Hermann, professor of phvsiology
ami mcuicai pnyMcs, Zurich l niversity,
who has spoken with unusual candor on
"The advancement of our knowledge and
not utility to medicine, is the true and
straightforward object of all vivisection.

When the vlvlscctorsasscrt.as tlev have

Gentle-men may fancy that, but I do not

my experience, which, as stated, has been
very great. I have never yi t seen any use
of anaesthetic, even partial, with cue ex

That is the kind or man that every man

Is It not so? One of the principal reasons
is the universally prevailing tobacco habit.
Tobacco kills nerves. Stay with tobacco
long enough, and every man will be a sal

disgust instead of love and arfectiou. No
man who uses toliacco can be as much of a

No grasp so strong as the death-grip of a
