Gov. Charles S. Thomas was pre
sented as chairman of the meeting,
and in an eulogistic speech he intro
d uced Col. Bryan, who was received
with prolonged applause. Mr. Bryan
spoke, in part, as follows:
~~ "The Bible tells us that Ahab, the
King, wanted the vineyard of Naboih
and was sorely grieved because the
owner thereof refused to part with
the inheritance of his fathers. Then
followed a plot and false charges were
preferred against Naboth to furnish an
excuse for getting rid of him.
'• 'Thou shalt not coyet,' 'Thou
shalt not bear false witness,' 'Thou
shaft not kill—three commandments
were broken, and still a fourth, 'Thou
shalt not steal' to be broken, in order
to get a litle piece of ground. And
what was the result ¥ When the King
went forth to take possession, Elijah,
that brave old prophet of the early
days, met him and pronounced against
him the sentence of the Almighty, 'In
the place where the dogs licked the
blood of Naboth, shall dogs lick thy
blood, even thine.'
"Neither his own exalted position
nor the lowly station of his victim
could save him from the avenging hand
of outraged justice. His case was
tried in a court where neither wealth
nor rank nor power can shield the
"Wars of conquest have their origin
in covetousness, and the history of the
human race has been written in char
acters of blood because rulers have
looked with longing eyes upon the
lands of others. Covetousness is prone
to seek the aid of false pretense to car
ry out its plans, but what it cannot
secure by persuasion it takes by the
"Senator Teller's amendment to the
intervention resolutions saved the
Cubans from the covetousness of those
who are so anxious to secure posses
sion of the island that they are willing
to deny the truth of the declaration of
our own Congress that 'the people of
Cuba are and of right ought to be
Mr. Bryan then proceeded to apply
the story of Naboth to the Philippine
question and argued that a war of con
quest would be wrong in principle, as
well as expenshe, and as harmful to
the people of the United States as to
the Filipinos. He spoke at considera
ble length, and concluded as follows:
"Impel ialism might expand the na
tion's territory, but it would contract
the nation's purpose. It is not a step
forward toward a broader destiny; it is
a step backward toward the narrow
views of Kings and Emperors.
"Dr. Taylor has appropriately ex
pressed it in 'his creed of the flag,'
when he asks:
Shall we turn to the old world again
With the penitent prodigal's cry¥
"I answer, never. This republic is
not a wayward son; it has not spent its
substance in riotous living. It is not
ready to retrace its steps, and with

heaven, and God grant.that the crown
ed heads of Europe may never have oc
casion to kill the fatted calf to com
memorate its return from reliance up
on the will of the people to dependence
upon the authority which flows from

"We cannot afford to enter upon a
colonial policy. The theory upon
which a government is built is a mat

cannot ignore it in dealing with the

: murder at Elkton, which was

given by Vinds are as follows:

had been there a few minutes, and was
in the act of leaving when some ope
knocked at the door, and in walked
Campbell, who had been separated
from his wife for over a year. He
spoke to his wife when he came in, and
said: "Here is the man 1 want to see.''
The victim's wife and her sister ran
out, leaving the men alone. Vinds
says that Campbell had a club, and
attacked him, and that they had a
tcnffle in the house, and that he ran
out into the yard, Campbi 11 following
and again attacking him, aud then he j
shot him in self-defense.
Campbell's wife says that as
reached her neighbor's house she heard
a shot and some one cry out, but was
afraid to go back. The next morning
Vinds sent his son down to see what
was the result of his shooting, and he
found Campbell dead about 75 yards!
from where the shooting occurred. The
sou went back and told his father, and
Vinds sent for the magistrate and gave
himself up. He is now in jail at Har

I Newspaper from Cuba,
have leceived from our friend
Harry N. (,'ootes, now at Ma
i, Cuba, a copy of a newspaper
hed in Havana, called The Lucha.
n eight column, six page paper,
printed in English on the first page,
and principally, in Spanish as to the
rest, and bears on the front page the
pictures of Gen. Fitz Lee, Gen Johnß.
Brooke aud Gen. Win. Ludlow, all
officers in high rank in Cuba. The
dale of the paper is January 2nd, the
day after the Spaniards hauled down
their flag, formally surrendered the
island to the United States,and depart
ed for Spain. The scene was evidently
a touching one and whilst we have
seen various accounts of the surren
der, we give below in part The Lucha's
account of it:
The most important part of the cer
emonies took place at the palace. Here
were to be found Generals Brooke,
Ludlow, Wade, Clous, Lee, Butler,
Davis,'and all the other officials of the
government and commission. Here
were present, also, the Cuban Gener
als May ia Rodrignez, Mario Menocal
and Rafael de Cardenas who were
B:sts of the American government.
American soldiers were grouped
around the palace on all sides, and
through and around the square, in
front of the palace.
Two regimental bands rendered
America and Columbia while the flag
was being raised.
There were some three thousand peo
ple near the palace, and the music was
a signal for prolonged cheering. Gener
al Castellanos handed the list of Gov
ernment property to General Wadel
and received in return receipts for the
Island, city, castles, etc.
General Castellanos then said, Gen
tlemen, It is with the deepest emotion
that I surrender to the American
commission the Spanish possessions in
Cuba; in accordance wiMi the protocol
and pursuant to the orders of Her
Catholic Majesty in power for her son
King Alphonso XIII—I hereby deliver
to the commission named by the Amer
ican government, all effects, papers
and properties of the Spanish crown,
in the Island of Cuba. May you be
successful in your administration and
may you never be in the position
which I now occupy.
He then asked to bi introduced to
the Cuban General Mayia Rodriguez,
whom he embraced, saying that he re
gretted thi.t though of the same blood
they had been enemies; Rodriguez le
plied that, now that Cuba is free, they
were so no longer.
Castellanos then went to bis room
and came out again with a small hand
satchel, and escorted to the door by
General Brooke, he descended to the
He was accompanied to his launch
by General Clous, who, at the landing,
embraced him and said: "Viva Es
pana." "Thanks, you are too kind,"
replied Castellanos, and his men dip
ped their oars, and away from the shore
I the boat bearing the last Spanish l
rnor General of Cuba.
c departure of Gen. Castellanos is
inlike 'the last sigh of Moor,"
.after an empire of many centuries
am, Boabdil, with a remnant of
jllowers, left her shores casting I
onging, lingering look behind."
Thus did Castellanos surrender Cuba
and depart for Spain, as he said "with
the deepest emotion," but with digni-l
Id gentlemanly bearing, and de I
lg be thus spoke gracefully, but
feeling, "May you be successful
ur administration, and may you I
be in the position I now occupy.'" I
;re are items of news, such as that
Mr. Jose Lorenzo was stabbed by a I
negro he was passing in the dark, and
died. Dr. Eugeuio Luzarreta y Con
get committed suicide, "not feeling
himself strong enourig to stand the
loss of Cuba, suffered by Spain." Au
editorial on the subject of Gen. Lee
says: "It is safe to say that Gen. Lee
is the most popular man in the United
States as far as the Cubans are con
cerned." President McKinley's name
is spelled MacKinley. A press of bus
iness has prevented our reading and
digesting the Spanish portion of the
paper. A note from Lieut. Cootes ac
companying the paper, says that one
Jesus Rabi, a Cuban General who is
in comman of the Cuban forces in
Western Cuba had issued what they
call a "Bando" calling the Cubans to
meet at Bayamo, at which time a na
tive seen in Havana shortly thereafter,
said that the American forces would be
given to January 31 to get out of Cuba,
aud if not gone by that time steps
would be taken to make them leave.
All this is quite interesting, and this
K settles one question beyond perad
;urc, and that is, that the Cubans
are distressingly ignorant. The Eng
lish portion of La Lucha shows that
this language is new in that office and
it is not handled to the best advan
tage, but the paper being the first
issued after the Island came under
the English tongue, due allowance
must be made. Its English has no
doubt greatly improved long e'er this.

From the day that a young man starts
out to seek his first position to the end of
his business life, his health has a world to
do with his success. When a young man
applies to a business man for a position, his
personal appearance has a deal to do with
the outcome. "Personal appearance" does
not mean dress alone. It does not mean
exterior cleanliness alone. A young v -i
may be clean, so far as soap and water \ .1
make him, but be disfigured by unsightly
pimples, erupcior.s and ulcerations on the
skin. These are due to impurities in the
blood. The blood becomes impure because
it is improperly nourished. Instead of
receiving the life-giving elements of the
food, it receives the foul emanations of
indigestion, bilousness and costiveness.
The reason that Dr. Pierces Golden
Medical Discovery is the best remedy for
disorders of this description is that it goes
right to first causes. It gives a man an
appetite " like a horse." It facilitates the
flow of digestive juices. It corrects all
disorders of the digestion, and makes the
assimilation of the life-giving elements
of the food perfect. It invigorates the
liver. It purifies and enriches the blood.
It makes the muscles strong and active.
It tones and steadies the nerves. It makes
a young man look as he should—strong of
body, alert of brain and clean and whole
some of skin. Medicine dealers sell it,
and have nothing "just as good."
" I had eczema iv its worst form," writes
Austin Ramsey. Esq.. of Saltillo, Huntingdon
Co., Pa. "I tried three doctors but got no re
lief. I thought it would set me wild, it itched
and burned so badly. The neighbors thought I
would never be cured. I took your ' Golden
Medical Discovery' aud am now well."
