General Shafter has had a thorough -"examination made of tho sanitary con? dition of Santiago. The work was done tay Dr. Goodfellow, of tho general's ?taff, and ky a civilian physician. Dr. Orlando Dwlker. They find that al? though there are at present but six alases of yellow fever in the city, in ad? dition to two suspects, the town ls ripe for an epidemic Santiago and Rio Janeiro are considered the greatest fever breeding centers in the world. This town iacks every sanitary feature at Its best, and now, after two months' ?doge, leaving lt dirty and repellant, tt ls a veritable pest hole. The awful ?tenches that arise from the streets Kgger and choke one. No cordial in it iago has the power to wash this ?ador from one's throat. There is no sewage system. The city ?ralnag* ia all from the surface into ??lhe harbor, and the lower part of the ea ty, through which much ef the drain eagre runs, especially from the poor Oj uart er around the bull ring te the ?orthw.st of the city, ls the seeding ?enter of malarial, typhoid and other -Sow fevers.

All the liquor stores, wholesale and retail, are closed, under General Shaf? ter's orders, but the Spanish soldiers have a large stock of rum on hand, -which they are exchanging for our hard tack and corned beef. A DESPERATE MURDERER. Killed Himself and Six Others by an K-vplo^lon to Avoid Arrest. Oakland, Cal., July 20.?The works of the Western Fuse and Explosive com? pany were blown up by a murderous Chinaman early yesterday morning.

Deputy Sheriffs Fred Sher? rin and Ed. White escaped, but are painfully wounded. The Celestial, who was employed In the works, had killed a fellow oountry man Monday afternoon in a quarrel ?ver a Chinese lottery ticket. He then defied the officers of the law who 'went to arrest him. The murderer fled into the magazine, which contained five tons of giant powder, barricaded him? self and threatened te blow up the magazine If any one came to arrest him. The officers kept guard all night, and in the morning when they ap? proached to arrest the Chinaman, who had then agreed to surrender, ba quickly stepped inside again and de? stroyed the building, with the above result. The murderer's body was blown to atoms. The woman killed waa visit? ing a friend nearby. All the mill build? ings and four adjoining houses were de atroyed and 40 others partially wrecked. Fourteen cars were blown to splinters. PYTHIAN NOTES. 8trange to say that the public is amazed at the progress being made by the Order, both in the lodges and court*. ?

M'S JCcws About Our Churches. BUKPAY VISITS TO CAMP COEBIN PrrnjineDt Pivine to Ifairy?Fffects of True love?A Few Facts frem the Word. Last Sunday was another hot day. Old "Fol" seemed to have poured forth sll of its power in tbe forenoon. In the afternoon ar.d evening this was substituted by a thunder-storm which greatly affected the engagements of some of our young people. The servi? ces at some of our'churches were well attended At tbe Ebeneier Church the congre? gation wss richly fed sll day. The communion services at 3:30 were ea peciolly impressive, and many a soul partook of the bread and wine in re? membrance of their crucified Lord. Rev. R. L. Stewart, Missionarv to Afrioa, broke the "Breed of Life" to the congregation of the Moore St. Bap? tist Church st ll :80 He declared that tbe "Horveot was great, and laborers were few." He showed Africa to that people on last Thursday night. Rev. Jasper is still leading his flock in the narrow rood, and makes them feel the spirit at his preaching of the Word. The services at the other churches were on their usual order. It was thought that the wedding belle would cease since so many of tbe belles had left town; but Cupid's darts are still o-flying. Quite a number of our friends are on j the sick list. We hope speedy recov? eries.

We hope the Rev. success. That those two clerks got into a scrap was no joke. Information comes that the female one got the best of the male one. We regret the affair, but we learn that the female was in fault. We also learn that they have been dis? charged, but moy compromise. We hone so. That carpenter soys he is best with that widow and has been for the past two years. Now, why doesn't he show it T Tbe old fellow is after you. Miss Etta Harris of Federal St., is exceeding ill at this writing. The Richmond Beneficial Insurance Company now stands ss the greatest enterprise in Jsckson Word. Others are coming rapidly. We learn that most of our girls hove decided to leave off the "bike" this season. Well, we thought it would come to this. It is rumored that one of our wid? owed divines will soon join hands again. He declares that it is not meet for man tn live slone. Yes, we've always said that "true love" is a serious thing. Hence mar? vel not because he mourned until he found his lost wife. Some people rather tattle than to eat when they are hungry. Be it not so with you. Our soldier boys at Camp Corbin were visited by quite a number of their friends on last Sunday. The boys seemed to have been in good spirits, living the soldier-life. 'Our girls seem to have but one idea, marry,?if that's not your mission, boys, they want you to keep a-going.

Rev. James Holmes, the officiating minister, knowing her, made his re? marks very personal, speaking of her as being a lady of true christian char? acter. Our Father, Thy will be done!

When these have been received the quest.on of a court martial of General Toral will be sub? mitted. KI Imparcial learns from several members of the cabinet that In opinion for Spain to sue now for peace -would be an avowal that she is van? quished. Moreover, they believe that the United Slates, flattered by tho triumph at Santiago, would only con? sent to peace on unequal terms, and that, therefore, it ls preferable to con? tinue the war In the hope of reconquer? ing a portion of the lost territory. "As the government makes no sign, lt can only be supposed," says El Imparcial. "that the ministers disagree oa the question." WAB BREVITIES. Thursday, July 14.

A CiibanXeader'a Protest, New Tork. July 20.?Dr. Lincoln de Zayos. of the Cuban Junta, said today that the reports that the Cubans resent the purpose of the United States to establish temporary military or other provisional government In the conquer? ed territory in Cuba was without foun? dation. "The Cubans,"* said he, "know that such arrangement is neoessary, and they do not expect the United States to turn the Island of Cuba over to them, or any part of lt, far their self government until the Island is entirely under American control, and then only after full provisions is mada for a permanent, stable government. Tho Cubans do resent, however, the slurs that are being cast upon them. They are made to appear despicable, while the Spaniards aro suddenly bar? ing pictured as heroes." States Delinquent on the Second Call. "Washington, July 20.?Fairly good progress has been made with ths re? cruiting for the volunteer army under the president's second oall for 16,000 troops. Indiana, Missouri, New Jersey, Rhode Island, West Virginia and Wis? consin have exceeded their quota, but all the others are behind In the supply of troops. The worst delinquent ls North Carolina, which has furnished only 56 soldiers to meet its quota of 783. Other delinquents are Colorado, Ne? braska, Louisiana, Tennessee and Vir? ginia, each of which has supplied less than half the number of men required. Alabama, Massachusetts, Arkansas, Georgia, Mississippi, Oregon and Texas have done very little better. The total strength of the army, regular and vol? unteer, ls 227,000 as now organized.

Sagasta Tarns to Franco. London, July 20.?The Madrid corre tpondent of The Standard says: "Se? nor Sagasta prefers to solicit tho as? sistance of France, but Duke Almodo va~ de Rio favors using Germany as the trump card to terminate war by seeking her action against America in the Philippines.

By order of Secretary Alger, Ad? jutant General Corbin last night cabled the document to General Shafter, In command of the military forces at Santiago. The paper ls not only an authorization and instruction of Gen oral Shafter for the government of ths captured territory, but also a procla? mation to the people of the territory of the intentions of the government of the United States regarding them and their interests. It makes the formal estab? lishment of a new political power in the Island ot Cuba and insures to the people of the territory over which ths power extends absolute security In the exercise of their private rights and re? lations, as v.-ell as security to tielr per? sons and property.

VaI I know as my life grows older, And mine eyes bare clear sight, That under the rank of wrong some? where. There lies the root of right. That each sorrow has its purpose, By the sorrowing oft unguessed ; But as sure as the sun brings morning. Whatever happens its best, I know that each sinful action. As sure as night brings shade, Is somewhere or sometimes punished, Though the time be long delayed. I know there is no error In the great supernatural plan, That all things work together For the final good of man. fc'o I know when my soul speeds on? ward, To its grand eternal guest, I shall cry as I look back earthward, Whatever happens it's best.
