The Trouble at Havana.
Although there have been qualified
olilelal denials of friction between Gen
erals Urooke and Wood growing out
ot their work In Cuba it is clearly
evident that friction has existed and
still exifcts. Only the other day the
i able told us how General Ilrooke was
annoyed to learn that Wood at San
tiago had issued on his own initiative
a decice coveting that province and
aiming to legalize civil marriages; and
how Ilrooke was going to notify Wood
that Mich inattets had first to lecetve
the appioval of himself and be pro
mulgated In general orders applicable
t'i the entire Island; and clashes of
tills character have occurred frequent
ly, They are. Inevitable under the con
dition". I.etteis from ohscivatu Americans
w ho have been in Cuba long enough
in get at tho bottom of things supply
the explanation. Hrooku Is Just as
- ttisclenttous as AVood and just as
mxlous to make a success of Amerl
an Intel vention. Hut unlike Wood,
w ho has to all intents and purposes
1 een all his life a civilian, Urooke is
an Ingrained bOldicr, habituated to mll
n.uy routine, accustomed to red tape,
an Instiiii'the martinet In matters
if fonu and ceietnony and lack
ing In those diplomatic and read
ily adaptive qualities which develop
hes-t in civil life With Wood, tho
nppeunost thought Is how to sup
ply the needs of Cuba; how to do as
quickly as possible what common sense
leaches has to be done there. All
minor consldeiutlonh and paitlcularly
mere matters of formullty between in
dividual Americans, he subordinates to
the big duty confronting him of re
constructing and developing Cuba.
Hence when thete Is a thing to do in
Santiago province he does It and does
It well; and if Brooke were more of a
civilian, that is to say, If he had moie
horse sense and less military self
consciousness, he would gladly let
Wood alone In little details so long as
Wood continued to show up strongly
with great results.
Urooke. thinks he Is doing his duty
In paying the greater share of his at
tention to questions of military dis
cipline or precedence; whereas, now
that actual lighting Is over, the em
phasis clearly should be placed on the
civil aspects of the problem. Wood
had not been In command of Santiago
province three months when he Issued
a general order doing uway with the
underlying evils of Spanish civil ad
ministration. That order declared the
right of the people peaceably to assem
ble for their common good and to apply
to those In power, by petition or re
monstrance, for redress of grievances;
proclaimed the doctrine of freedom of
worship and liberty of conscience; said
the courts should be open to every
pet son, and Just remedy given for
every Injury to person or property;
asserted the right of tho accused In
criminal cases to be heard by himself
nnd counsel, to demand the nattito and
cause of the accusation against him,
to have compulsory processes for wit
nesses In his favor, to have right of
bair save In exceptional cases, and to
be exempt utter acquittal from ft sec
ond trial for one offence; proclaimed
the security of the people In their
l-uslness, persons, papers, houses nnU
eifects against unteasonuble searches
and seizures; announced the freedom
of speech and of the press and, In
short, substituted the broad founda
tions of Anglo-Saxon civilization for
tho medlaevul narrowness and oppres
sion ot Spanish rule. It Is sufllclently
Illustrative of the chatacter nnd meth
ods of General Urooke to say that al
though this revolutionary programme
had by Jan. 1, the date of Brooke's
entrance, become fully and success
fully established In Santiago province,
giving Immense popularity and effec
tiveness to General Wood'n adminis
tration, in nil other parts of Cuba the
barbaiitles of the Spanish codo still
prevail and American military admin
istration Is yet using the discredited
Instruments, to rescue cuuii irom
which tho American people went to
war with Spain.
A good man wrongly placed often
works harm without intending so to
do. General Brooke is admittedly an
accomplished soldier; but the work
needed at Havana these iluya calls

ship far removed In most things irom
the qualities of the purely military
The people demand street repairs and
their demand will soon become per
emptory. How to Reward Dewey.
A solution has been proposed by tho
New Totk Times of the problem in
volved in Admiral Dewey's home-coming,
and it Is a good one. The Times,
In common with other papers, points
out the physical impossibility of the
acceptance by IJowey of the thousands
of invitations pouring in upon him and
calls attention to the fact that Ills
acceptance of only a few of the moro
representative invitations would still
leave many millions of fellow coun
trymen In the lurch In their anxiety to
greet him and do conspicuous honor to
his epoch-marking achievements.
Consequently our New York contem
porary proposes to collect a fund for
the admiral's benefit through the med
ium of United States periodicals. Pro
vided that one-fourth of the papeis
should pledge themselves, relying on
readers' subscriptions, to the sum of
$300 each, says Tho Times, the aggre
gate would amount to $230,000. Half
of this, It Is proposed, should be de
voted to building a house for the ad
miral where he might prefer, and the
other half to his personal use. Con
gress, says The Times, according to
precedents, has done all that it can do,
"but there is a persistent and prevail
ing feeling that wo ought to do more;
that the Ametlcan nation In some un
olllcial and spontaneous way should
recognize the services of Dewey as the
British nation offlclally recognized the
services of Wellington, when It pre
sented him the estate of Strathtlelds-
say, at the cost $1,315,000."
A popular offering of only five cents
by each American voter would pro
vide for Admiral Dewey a fund with
which to purchase, furnish and endow
a hnndsomo residence at the national
capital, befitting the highest oiilcer In
the American navy and the hero
of the most remarkable naval cam
paign in the history of warfare on
the sea. Its advantages to Dewey
would bo obvious; but it would also
serve as a continual incentive to other
ofllcers of tho navy, who are clearly
destined to play an Increasing part
In the national activities of the future.
They would see in it more than a
tribute to one particular man. It
would be to them a vote of popular
confidence In the American navy as
an institution and a public testimonial
that republics are not necessarily un
grateful. A homo for Dewey by all
means; It is vastly more sensible than
feeding him to death at unhealthful
for their prosperity they will either
be very careful and considerate or else
very short-lived.
Let the agitation continue. Out ot
It good will come.

It may bo only a coincidence, but the

moro to adopt tho policy ot terrifying
tho negroes by lynching und other sav
age outrages against them. Tho Savan
nah paper talks about weeding out tho
"lawless clement" umoiig them In order
to prevent trouble. That element Is not
confined to the negroes. It exists among
the whites also, nnd is present every
whero In civilization. Tho pilmo object
of tho law of civilized states Is Its con
trol and subjection by means of pnlns
and penalties, Such law prevails In the
statutes of tho south, und It affords mif
llclent means for the protection of Its
society against the lawless, whether
black or white. When, .therefore, tho
south proceeds to defy tho law It becomes
Itself lawless. Tho whites tesort to mur
der and assassination to terrify the "law
less element" among tho negroes and
thus confess that tho south Is outside of
civilization, that Its society is worso in
its disregard of law than even tho savage
tribes, for thoso have an orderly and or

It is proved abundantly that only a

nah paper wants to keep tho negroes as
furnishing labor essential to tho devel

wav to do It? Is there any laboring pop
ulation which would stand that sort of
treatment without dangerous resent
ment? Will not the negroes either wreak
a bloody revenge or depart from a region
whero they suffer from outrnges so un
exampled in history for their brutality,
and so unnecessary for the protection of
society, as they well know?
When a movement for tho emigration
of tho negroes to Kansas was started a
few years ago, even violent measures to
prevent its continuance were taken In
North Carolina and South Carolina, on
tho ground that it was depleting danger
ously the labor supply In tho neighbor
hoods to which It reached. Now, how
over, propositions to drive out all tho
negroes are dltcussed seriously, through
out tho soutli thn lynching of negroes for
various reasons, and on various pre
texts, Is going on with Increasing fio
quency, and political disabilities are im
posed upon them. Thus every posslblo
pressuro Is brought to force the negroes
out. If tho whites of tho f-outh sympa
thize with this Savannah paper in its de
slro to keep tho negroes us a laboring
population, which Is essential to Its pros
perity, they will need to prove their faith
by their works. They will need to refrain

By a vote of 101 to 4 the house of rep

providing that "If any person, persons,

or elsewhere shall, with the Intent or

r SOUTIIHUN newspaper, the Press,
A of Savannah, asks the question,
lit "Will tho negro go?" and comes
n to tho conclusion that the de
portation to Liberia of tho eight
millions or moro of negroes In tho
southern states is Impracticable. H sug
gests as more feasible their emigration
to Cuba and Porto Hico, whero their la
bor would bo desirable, but is doubtful
about their going of their own free will.
"To bo candid," however, it acknowl
edges, it does not want them to go
away at all. They furnish, it says, "the
best labor tho southern people ran have,
and If the lawless element could be weed
ed out there would never bo any trouble
In the south. "
Of course, tho deportation or emigra
tion of thu negroes trom tho south would
bo a great calamity to It. The conse
quence would be fo far disastrous that,
If the negroes should organizes any ex
tensive movement to leave tho t-outli,
there would arba forthwith a general
cry of alarm, and tho whites would or
ganize on their part to prevent the exe
cution of the project, even to the extent
of using violent measures. Southern
negro labor is cheap labor. It Is pecu
llai ly adapted to the conditions at tho
south, and could not possibly bo re
placed by any other which would be sat
isfactory. It is not dlstui bed by the
trudes-unlont3in which affects labor else
where. It Is generally orderly, submis
sive, easily contented, Industrious, and
meets fully tho requirements of the agri
culture In which it Is engaged chiefly.

It Is a dangerous policy for the south In
its relations with bo great u part of Its

Tho packing and preservation of meat
food products as a business was carried
on In a small way In the United States up
to 1S60, bliico which time it has assumed
large proportions, making its great
growth in compan with the development
of the central west and its railroads, .c
ceiving a great forward Impetus by tho
perfection of tho refrigerator car and tho
aitillcial ico machine. Tho building of
tho railroad systems, furnishing ciuick
transportation for live stock and rapid
distribution of product, mado conditions
favorable for tho establishment of broad
Uvo stock markets at tho larger railroad
centers, where eastern buyers could pro
cure stock for shipment on tho hoof to
their abattoirs. At these primary mar
kets wcro quickly established slaughter
ing houses for tho packing of staple pork
products, the so-called offul being thrown
away as ot no value. This was tho con
jdltlon of affairs in lSwi in Chicago,
Milwaukee, Uuffalo and Cincinnati,
then and for somo years afterward llio
main hog-packlng centers. But little was
being dono in a largo way in tho ship
ping of fresh beef products any great
distance, dried and corned beef being
about tho only articles trom beeves suf
ficiently preserved to safely sdilp.
Lato in 1S60 men of economic tendencies
began tho manufacture of glues, oils,
etc., from somo of the waste, and eaily
in tho 'boventles tho blood and other
portions of llvo stock not used tor food,
glue, soap, or leather, were manufac
tured into fertilizer ingredients. These
savings enabled the progressive slaught
erers to not only pay moro for their live
stock, but to undersell their competitors
who did not utlllzo tho waste. During
tho early seventies tho preservation of
meats in tins was successfully intro
duced. With the perfection of tho refrig
erator, so that fresh meats could bo kept
for a reasonable timo, camo the develop
ment ot tho refrigerator car, enabling
fiesh meat to bo transported from tho
ice box of tho west to the ice box of the
cast In the ico box car, A man with a
sharp pencil soon figured it out that it
was a saving of money to kill beeves in
Chicago and ship tho edlblo parts cast
rather than to ship the cattle alive to tho
east, with a largo shrinkage, risk and
freight on tho portions not good for
food. A moro complete utilization of
tho formerly wasted portions was then
perfected, Tho world was tho market of
distribution. Tho product could bo sold
by energetic merchandising. The pack
ers bought all the llvo stock shipped to
theso central markets, and asked for
moro. Llvo stoclc growing was oemg
rapidly put on a sound basis. Instead of
having to tako his chances on finding a
prompt niaiket for his stock, and often
having to wait a week or so at heavy ex
penso and shrinkage before disposing of
his herd, tho Uvo stock grower found that
he could market any grade of stock any
business day of tho year for cash und
without delay.
The Mississippi Valley corn fields were
overflowing with corn, tho prairies of tho
west were carpeted with nutritious
grasses. It was a safe business venture
to feed cattle In largo numbets, for they

to markets. In 18":'. 20:,910 cattlo and
C,019,SH hogs wero slaughtered at four
packing centers. In 169S. 3,800,000 cattlo
and 23 200 000 hogs wcro packed. Tho
valuo of tho product in 1S9S was estimated
nt $150,000,000, employing directly nearly
100,000 laborers, and Indirectly half as
many more, In addition to tho largo nam
her employed on tho farms and ranges.
One houso In Chicago alone annually
pays out 13,000,000 in wages. Lines of re

There is at present living in the northern part of the State of
New Hampshire a well-preserved man who wjs a soldier of the
War of the Rebellion. He is sixty-one years of ae, and likes to take
life easy now ; but has ailments, peihaps inseparable from the decline
of life, and has found much relief from the use of Ripans Tabules.
He was long troubled with frequent he ulaches ; there was an enlarge
ment of the liver ; he was annoyed moi'e or less now and then with
piles, and occasionally there was a rheumatic affection in his shoulder;
another difficulty was a shortness ot' breath, or what seemed to be
an inability to fill his lungs ; this he attributed to a stomach trouble,
although he was told it was dropsy ot the heart. He found that
Ripans Tabules, if taken at the time' of the approach of any of these
troubles, would always stave it off, and brim; almost instant lelief.
He noticed also that they brought about a condition of things that,
were he a married man, would be u source of infinite pleasure, but,
being single, has at times made him, as he expresses it, ' 'very uneasy."
