Editor Democrat: The score bf Democrats who worked hard to have Mr. Daniel Mc Garry appointed City Commissioner feel very proud of the splendid rec ord he has made in office. Never has his vote been cast against the in terests of the people. He lias used all the influence at his" command to block the selfish schemes of tho fran chise interests, and on several occa sions he has prevented steals which would surely have gone through but for his opposition. So knowing what a good oflicer Mr. McGarry has been, and the val uable service ho has given the tax payers, I was surprised and then dis gusted at reading the communication in last night's Beacon from Bolter Eussell of the Sixth ward, telling how he was unsuccessful in pulling Commissfoner McGarry's leg for a hundred dollars a year ago. Com missioner Crisp told Mr. McGarry last-night that this same bolter had sent in a $400 bill to Art Rowley for helping him fight Mayor Young, but was turned down good and hard". Russell is all the time writing long winded articles for the papers, de nouncing boodlers and advocating political reform, but ho now admits over his own signature that he tried to bleed McGarry for doing nothing more than hundreds of far better Democrats than ho were glad to do without hope or promise of remuner ation. Let's make up a purse and pay Russell his hundred dollars. There'll be no more tiresome communications then, for, as was so well said by Job: "Doth tho wild ass bray when he hath grass; or lowetli the ox over his fodder?" C. B.

The woman lost her soon after get ting in town and therefore she had no place .to stay, ho said Mr. McCourt did not believe the story and notified Oflicer Kcmpel and. Prisonkeeper Washer.

She had school books under her arm and was a pupil of the Howe school. Miss Stroup left home in the morn ing for school apparently in a pleas ant mood.

Welkkr, Recording Sec. NOT CONSISTENT. The Advice of Many Temperance Workers. Many times while I was an active worker in the W. C. T. U. and was urging men to givo up drinking, I would feel ashamed of my own slav ery. Many times I would determine to give it up but it had such a mastery over mo that I became sick and dis tressed and would return to it, which is exactly the way with any stimulant like coffee or whiskey and it marks such an article as a stimulant and such an individual as a slave thereto. . I was subject to periodical sick spells at the stomach, dizziness in the head, and cross and fretful morn ings. About six months ago T began to use Postuni Cereal Food Coffee and T have not had a sick spell since, no dizziness and I feel as cheorful and calm as a good Christian ought to feel. I am greatly improved in health and am growing stout. T am so delighted with the Postum that I recommend it to every one who comes to our table and some who do not. A short time ago, a relative visiting us from Columbia, Ga., was served with a nice hot cup at breakfast, without being told that itwas Postum Food Coffee. After breakfast T asked him how he liked our coffee. He said he liked it bet ter than any cup of coffee he had ever drank, for it had a little pecul iar taste that fitted his palate per fectly. He wanted to know what brand we used and I told him" it was Postum- Food Coffee, no berry coffee at all. He could not be persuaded that I was not teasing him until I got the package and showed him all about it. He bought quite a little to take home to his family. You may depend upon it that the cup he had was well made and I am very particular to know that Postuni is boiled, for that is -a tiling that cof fee users have to learn. They can; not make Postum by a little sim mering, as they formerly made cof fee. You can always tell whether it has had boiling enough by the taste. If it is rich, strong and good Jit has had boiling enough to bring the taste out. lfJ is not, it had only been on the ,- n short time. My neXk ,ir ncighbor,Mrs. Sweet, had.to give up coffee and is now us ing Postum. She audall her family are delighted with if. Tho family of Rev. Mr. Cassndaut at Now Ring ford, Pa., have abandoned coffee and tea entirely at (heir table and use Postum and are enthusiastic in its praise. Mrs. J. Morlcv, 2210 Itain Inldgost., Phibi., Pn. PLUNGED Into Fire and Smoke. The Story of the Fights Around Manila. Lieut. Conger's Many Exciting Experiences.' An Interesting Account of the Many Battles. No Compens'ation For the Loss of a Soldier. A Dkmockat reporter called on Lieut. A-. L. Conger last evening and asked for an account of some of his Philippine experiences.. The follow ing is in part what he related: 'The first fighting I took a hand in was at Iloilo, island of Pa nay. The 18th infantry was sent down to occu py this town Dec. 20. It wasjat that time held by the Spaniards and they were to turn it over to us. but they had not received news of our coining and four days before our arrival they had evacuated the the town and the insurgent army had come in and taken possession. ".We had strict orders not to an tagonize or get into any fights with the natives and so, though we might have landed on our arrival with little or no opposition, we remained at an chor out in the stream and sent back to Manila for .furl her instructions. Our instructions proved to be to "wait" and we'waited 47 days", though it did not seem long as we were con stantly expecting orders to land. 'Feb. of h the fightingbegun around Manila and Gen. Otis at once sent Gen. Miller, who commanded our expedition, orders to land. Gen. Miller sent word to the insurgents Feb. 10th at 5 p.m. to either evacu ate or surrender withm 24 hours. The next morning we saw the insur gents putting up new trenches and making all kinds of preparation to give us a hot reception.. This was contrary to our agreement and 'the "Baltimore" and "Petrel" which had convoyed our expedition at once opened fire with their big guns. Bombardment the insurgents had not bargained for and they started-to flyin every direction, setting fire to all the houses and stores as they went. "Our warships wrapped in the smoke of their guns, the shells ex ploding in all parts of the city, and huge columns of fire and smoke ris ing higher and higher, made a mag nificent sight. The roar of the big guns and nak-nak-nak of the rapid fires was a fitting accompaniment. 'My battalion .was the first talaud, and I had the good fortune to have command of my company. We worked our way througli the city with little opposition, save fire and smoke. These were almost intoler able at times. At one place it seem ed impossible to get through, but we got down to the beach and worked our way along the edge of the water. "Co. E. captured the bridge and so cut off the retreat of the insurgents and K (my company) and "B had the pleasure ff driving the insurgents across tho river in rather uncere monious haste. "The Second Battalion could not get through the fires until late in the aftarnoon, so our three companies drove out the insurgents and held the upper part of the city for several hours. "We had the good luck not to lose a man, but this was chiefly due to the fact that the insurgents were poor shots until we taught I hem that I hey must cither learn to use their gun sights intelligently or Keep out of our range. In our last fight my reg iment lost about 10 per cent, killed and wounded. "The next day after our landing my battalion advanced to Haro about three miles -inland, which we took with small los.s'. There my company was on outnost every other day and we had numerous adven tures, skirmishes, etc., which would take too long to relate. "On my return homo I luul to wait two weeks in Manila for a transport and while there was out with the Second Oregon Volunteers in Gen. Wheatoe's "Flying B.igade." The last day T was with (he regiment we met stubborn resistance on the part of the insurgents and had to charge three sets of trenches in succession in front of Malabou. We won a quick victory but with heavy loss on our part, and though the Insurgent loss was heavier, there Is no possible There's Satisfaction In the size of our trade.
