General Buckner's Views. v
General S. B. Buckner, of the dls- v
-*? ?.J VAntilnbv U'hlll> In I
llObltu ovate v> ....
New York the other day gave an Inter- I
estlng talk to a reporter. General a
Buckner was the vice presidential can- 1
tiidata on the Gold Democracy ticket In f
1886, and his Impression Is that the f
opponents of Bryan would not put a t
ticket in the Held this fall. "But c
much," said he, "will depend upon the t
action of the conventions at Philadel- t
phla and Kansas City." General Buck- s
ner maintained that the Gold Demo- r
crats was as strong?stronger If any- n
thing?as they were four years ago; and
that while It is true that some who I
voted with the Gold Democracy or for S
McKlnley have returned to the Demo- e
cratlc fold, many recruits have been
gained. Said the general: "We fought f<
for a principle in 1S96 and arc prepared P
to make another struggle, If necessary, t:
Neither General Palmer nor myself had fc
any idea of being elected, but we believed
we would succeed in saving tha d
country. That we did do and we have b
also brought about the adoption of the s
gold standard. The free and unlimited v
coinage of silver at the ratio of 16 to 1 d
is dead as an issue, but the Bryanltes
may try to make it one." d
In speaking of Kentucky, General v
~ ? flmnlv hoi toVr>r1 thnt C
tOUtAllCl MtlU UG ui U1V . ..v. ?
Kentucky would give Its electoral vote c
*o McKlnley, owing: to the strong feel- p
ing against Goebellsm and Us attending v
Iniquities. As to the attempt to convict n
the assassin of Goebel, the eminent
Kentuckian said: "I don't thlr.k that f
the Goebelites want to catch the real s
murderer. They have $100,000 of blood li
money, and they will use it tQ convict t
any politician in high place whom they v
.want to get rid of. They will manage s
to get any testimony that they want I
and will prove that the person whose u
conviction they desire was In the state li
i house at Frankfort when the shot was k
flred, even if he was miles away at the o
time." a
The St Louis Strike.
One of the most cowardly Incidents r
of the St Louis street car strike was the
attempt of Governor Stephens, of Mis- J
souri, to shift the blame on the Republican
mayor for not using his best en- r
tieavors to suppress the lawlessness. h
The truth of the matter is that Mayor 1
Zlegenheira was practically powerless,
as he had no control over the police, all 1
authority being vested In a Democratic *
police board, appointed by Governor 0
Stephens. The governor's statement
cannot be reconciled with his expression
during the earlier days of the strike
that "the rioting and bloodshed are duo
to a little group of Democratic politicians,
who hope to profit by the dis- a
turbances." It is also quite different
from the recent declaration of f he Dem- c
ocratlc president of the police board of Q
Bt Louis, appointed by Governor 0
Stephens, who made the following de- y
claratlon: 'There has been a whole lot
of politics in this strike, and I regret to
say the trouble comes from members of g
my own party. When*the score of this J,
strike Is paid, no small share of Its j
continuance will belong to the Demo- 'c
'eratic politicians, who are taking ad ..o?,acrn
of th? situation and trying to
make political capital out of It." -5
St. Louis is a Republican city, but the
Democratic legislature has so legislated j,
that It cannot govern its own police, and
the attempt" of Governor Stephens to
make political capital out of the (lis- 1
tresslng affair Is one of the boldest c
pieces of demagogy ever perpetrated. 1
Exportation of Coal.
The United States in 1S99, by passing ^
England, became the largest producer 1
of coal in the world, and from this
point we move to another one of greater
Interest in becoming a large exporter
of coal. In this West Virginia has a 3
shore to some extent with marveloui< J
oossiblltles ahead. These facts lend c
special interest to an elaborate discussion
of the world's coal product,
published by the bureau of statistics of "
the treasury department In the April
number of the monthly summary of c
commerce and finance, which states
that exportation^ of coal from th". \
United States In the ten months endln;: *
with April were nearly 50 percent larger ^
than those of the some month* of the
preceding fiscal year and 80 per c nt
larger than those of the corresponding ^
?nt nfis u-hllr> ntir total nroduc- |.
infill"" VI
tJon for 1808 wan not only thr? largjut in ](
our history but larger than that of any
other country in the world.
For the first tlrnr? the Unit';] Stat?* f
figures show a larger production than i
the British figures for th'?! sam?! period.
The significance of this fact cannot be
over-estimated. Coal Is now mor* than t
ever "the-materJal energy of a country, c
the universal the fftclpr in ?v*i*y, t
hlng we do." The rulatlvo abundance I
r scarcity of coal, therafore, is the trust
index of a country's position among
in industrial rivals. According to reent
information steamera have been
harterrd to carry coal from Africa to
It. Petersburg and Stockholm, as well
s to Italian, French and German ports.
Vhile these exports may bo due mainly
o the present abnormal conditions of
ho British coal market, there is no
oubt that in time this country will bo
ailed upon to supply an even larger
art of the coal needed by foreign lnustrial
countries, which, until recently,
tave been drawing upon the British
utput. This Is the more probable since
ost of production and prices of coal
how a falling tendency for this counry,
whereas tho opposite holds true of
European coal producing countries.
Modern Medical Miracle.
The complete recovery of a man with
. broken neck Is one of tho marvels of
nodern medical science. Thin is the
ase of young Duryea, tho son of the
wealthy starch manufacturer of New
fork. Durvea*b uhvsiclans reuard his
ecovery as little short of a miracle. His ,
ase has attracted attention all over the j
vorld, and Is one of the most fingular
a the annals of medical practice. His
emarkabla condition to-day Is the reult
of a rare operation performed In I
toosevelt Hospital on September 18, J
899. Physicians and surgeons In all
arts of the country have awaited with j
:een interest the outcome of the efforts
hat have been made to save the athete's
life.
The Injury baflled his physicans for '
veeks ,and several times they gave up I
41 hope of saving his life.
They obtained X-ray pictures of his
pine, however, and thus located his inury
so accurately that the operation
k'htch was believed might be successful
fas decided to be possible.
Duryea broke his neck while attemptng
to dive off the steps of the Casino
it Oyster Bay on Sunday, August 7,
899. He could move neither hand nor
oot, and he lay in the water until his
rfend, alarmed at his failure to come
o the surface, pulled him out. He was
onscious when taken out, and said he
hought his neck was broken. He was
aken to his home, but his life was depalred
of. Several of the most emilent
physicians in the city were sum
[JUI1CU.
He was removed to a private room in
toosevelt Hospital and his fight for life
peedlly won the admiration and interst
of his own and other physicians.
He lay with his head in a plaster cast
or six weeks before the operation was
erformed. About the ninth day after
he accident he grew weaker and on the
enth he became delirious.
His temperature arose to 104 and the
octors said then that he would probacy
not live through the night. To the
urprJse of all, however, he began to get
rell and was soon considered out of all
anger.
Then came the operation. About a
ozen medical men were present and 11
fas over in forty minutes. The sur*ons
had to lay bare the delicate spinal
ord, and the slightest movement on the
art of the patient during the operation
ould have meant death. Duryea did
lot take ether.
The X-ray disclosed the fact that the
ractured vertebra was pressing on the
pinal cord. The surgeons took out the
iminae of fifth and sixth vertebrae and
hus restored in a large measure the
sridth of the canal through which the
pinal cord passes. From that time on
Juryea began to recover. He now sits
iprlght, wheels himself about the room
n his chair, and can write and use a
:nlfe and fork. He expects to regain
41 his old strength, and even talks of
thletics again.
Four years ago Thomas Brackett
teed was a prominent candidate for the
'residency at St. Loui3, but of late
ears he has been lost In New York.
Jtrange as it may appear, this once
lowerful and brainy politician's name
ias never been before the public until
he other day Columbia university conared
it up by conferring the degree of
D. upon him. But then everybody
mows why ex-Spcaker Reed dropped
ut of the glare of public life.
The Kentucky Democrats in convenion
at Louisville were compelled to
umlliate themselves by confessing that
he Goebel election law was Iniquitous

utstretched arms for the arrival of

ivus inspected by Generate Lao and P
Lonsstereet, she attended on hoifeback j c<
md associated with the staff officers
)f the several commander?.
Her greatest service, however, was
:hat of a spy. For months and years
-.he withstood every privation and lived
constantly within the shadow of death. Her
nam? was passed from one federal p
irmy to another, and the greatest honjrs
awaited the officer or sentry who
vould capture her. Ttoe man ?who flnaly
accomplished the feat aftenrard sac- J0
riflced everything for her. ?
Belle Boyd was captured on the *"
jlockade runnar Greyhound, in 1864, by ^
i gunboat in command 01 L.ieuienanc
Samuel Harding, of Brooklyn. She and
avo confederate oflleers were being conveyed
o;i the gunboat to Boston, and
luring tho trip Lieutenant Harding lost
lis heart to the beautiful prisoner. He
jropoaed marriage.
"So generous and noble had lie been
n everything." she said, In telling of
he romance years afterward, "that I
old him I would be his wife, th??ush our
politics differed. 'Woman,' thought I,
can sometimes work wonders, and may
lot even he become by degrees to love
'or my sake the Ill-used south?' "
Even before this romantic voyage was
nded tho implacable foo of the north
:onnlved at the escape of her two con- _
ederate fellow prisoners. She herself r
vas sentenced to be shot and afterward
>anlshed from the country. Lieutenant l,l
Harding was arrested for allowing the
wo prisoners to escape, but he was not h<
jonvlcted. Shortly afterward he delerted
and followed tho witching rebel
0 England, where he marbled her, the ^
'rlnco of Wales attending the wedding.
He returned to thl3 country later and
'ollowed his wife's example became a
:onfederate spy. Harding lived only
our years after his marriage. In 1869
3elle Boyd, who had become an actress, ?
narrled Colonel John S. Hammond, an
x-Brltish army officer, In New Orleans, ?
tnd went to live In California She was I
llvorced from her husband In 18S4, and
1 year later married Nathaniel R. High,
;on of an Episcopal clergyman of Tocdo,
O., with whom she lived until her
Icath. She lectured for years, principally
at Grand Army encampments
hroughout the country, where many D
