Alger went out like a lamb. The announcement that Mark Hanna will retire frorn active busi ness life does not mean that he is going out of the business of running the government. Col. H. C. Sankord is making his rival, Prof. Seese, very uncomfort able by charging him with bolting the Republican ticket. Of course the Third ward statesman is wholly without sin in this regard. If the man with the dark lantern who went about the county in '96 exposing the dishonesty of Mexican dollars, will only take a notion to turn tho light on the underhanded methods by which the Russell salary bill was defeated in the last Legisla ture by the local Republican Ma chine, the people will have reason to rise and bless him. Senator Burrows announces that "the Philippine insurrection, if not speedily crushed, will have a disastrous effect for the Republican party upon the general elections in 1900." The Senator's views are "shared by several cabinet members and the President himself." Hence forth the shabby pleas of "manifest destiny" and "benevolent assimila tion" should be thrown to tho winds. If a bloody war of subjugation must be prosecuted for the bole purpose of promoting the political fortunes ol the Administration, there should be no equivocation about the fact.

JVenrlr n Million Pnmicnscr rrc Daily Collected un the Snrfnce nnd IMevnted Lliict City of Home, Otorrhea, l'lirUn and Schools. Special Corresiiondence. Brooklyn, July 31. This city, or rather this borough of Greater Ktw York, is unquestionably the most unique of all cities. Apart from New York and removed any considerable distance from the great metropolis, it would be the second or at least the third city on this continent in population and com mercial importance. But New York, of which it is a part, overshadows it Its individuality is largely lost, merged into the greater city across the river. Fully 450,000 people, mainly living in Brook lyn and doing business in New York, daily swarm across the great bridge which spans the East river or cross on the various ferries that ply between its shores. Brooklyn is called the dormitory PEOPOSED TOWElt OV LOOKOUT BILL, PROS PECT PABK. of New York, which is a fairly correct designation, yet not wholly so With its population of over a million people Brooklyn is a city on its own account, and has its own distinctive institutions and landmarks, which no process of consolidation can wholly efface. Brooklyn is not inaptly referred to as "Trolleyville, " and we who live here are frequently called "trolley dodgers." And that's no libel. "We do have to dodge trolley cars, for their tracks com pletely gridiron the city. Within the borough of Brooklyn there are .fully 400 miles of electric railway-track. The electric lines are mainly owned and operated by the Brooklyn Rapid Transit company, which also operates tho ele vated railroads. With the exception of a comparatively small independent line the Coney Island and Brooklyn rail road this company has a monopoly of the passenger traffic of Brooklyn. Un der normal conditions the various sur face and elevated lines daily carry 850, 000 passengers, a considerable percent age of whom are conveyed over the bridge to and from the borough of Man hattan. About 2,000 cars are operated daily, making 15,000 trips and covering in the aggregate 200,000 miles. These figures do not include the Long Island railway, which does a large local pas senger business within the city limits. In the matter of parks and public grounds Brooklyn surpasses most cities. Within its corporate bounds 1,600 acres are set apart as public parks. The most noted of these is Prospect park, in which there are 450 acres. A tract of 680 acres between Ridgewood and Rich mond Hill was recently acquired by the park department at a cost of about $2, 000,000, and is designated as Brooklyn Forest park. An effort is now being made, with fair prospect of success, to establish a park at Coney Island, com prising something like 400 acres stretch ing along the seashore from Sea Gate to Manhattan Beach. Brooklyn might almost be called a summer resort, as within its borders are so many of the most delightful and widely known seaside places Manhat tan Beach, Brighton, Bath Beach, Rock away, Far Rockaway and the always "great and only" Coney Island. Stretching from Coney Island to As toria, on Long Island sound, Brooklyn lias over 20 miles of water front, along nearly all of which the depth is suffi cient to allow the approach of tho lar gest ocean going ships. Its facilities for wharfage and storage are nnsurpassed either in extent or convenience by any port in the world. Just back from the water front on the East river is Walla bout market, one of the largest markets in the world, covering 22 acres of ground, the site and buildings having cost about $2,000,000. The business litre transacted aggregated $30,000,000 a year. Brooklyn is termed "the City of Homes and Churches," and the term is not misapplied. Here is the most noted church in this country Plymouth, made famous by Henry Ward Beecher. There are in Brooklyn 500 churches, em bracing every shade of religious belief. It is likewise a city of schools and li braries and benevolent institutions. Aside from the public Echools, there are here about 30 educational institutions of various kinds. There are 125 hospi tals, dispensaries and asylums. Brook lyn has doubtless the most historic and beautiful burial ground in this country Greenwood cemetery where rest the ashes of many of the most distinguished people of Brooklyn and New York. Sam H.

The casket containing the remains of Colonel Haw k lns was taken ashore today with cere monies befitting Colonel Hawkins' rauk. The remains of the dead commander will be sent to Pennsylvania for In terment. Colonel Hawkins died on July 18, on board of the trans port Senator enrnute to this city with his regiment from Manila. His death occurred two days after the transport sailed from Yokohama. Cancer of the bowels was the cause of death. The re mains were embalmed on board the ship and brought here for shipment to I'eun xylvania. The ship bearing the legi meut has arrlieil, bringing the sad news. Mag at Half-Mast. The Senator arrived with her flag at h.ilfm.Lst on account of the death of Colonel Hawkins. Tho Senator sailed from Manila, on July 1, with 38 officers and 721 enlisted men. The transport was at Nagasaki on July 15, when Colonel Hawkins was taken ill with cancer of the bowels, from which he had been a suiferer during the greater part of his campaign in the Philippines, and for which he had un dergone treatment in the military hos pital ai Manila. His illness continued during the following day, July 10, when the Senator was at Yokohama, and two days later he passed away at sea Colonel Hawkins' illness dated from the battle of Malolos, when he exposed himself almost recklessly in the disease-breeding climate. Ho was re spected and loved by every man of his command, and his death is deeply mourned by the troops. His body was placed in a hermetically sealed casket, and on the Sunday following his death impressive funeral services were con ducted by the chaplain of the regiment, all of his men being in attendance. The remains were placed in the stern of the vessel and lay in state, attenaed day and night by a guard of honor dur ing tho remainder of the voyage. After the death of Colonel Hawkins, the command of the regiment was vested in Lieutenant Colonel Barnett, who, like the dead commander, is popu lar among the enlisted men, and made a good record in the war. Of tho 750 officers and men whom Colonel Barnett brought to San Fran cisco, three are privates iuthe Sixth ar tillery, U. S. A., and one is a member of the Nebraska regiment who was left behind at Yokohama when his compan ions sailed for this port on the Han cock. A dozen stowaways were also concealed in tho hold and were soon brought to light after the Senator left Yokohama. One Man a Victim of Appendicitis. The Senator had a good trip from Japan. With the exception of the sad illness and death of the regimental com mander there was no sickness aboard, baiting a few cases of seasickness and half a dozen cases of dysentery. At bight of land, all the invalids were able to leave tho bunks and line up on the main deck except one poor fellow who has developed symptoms of appendi citis and who will be operated upon in the hospital here. When the Tenth Pennsylvania left for the Philippines last year the muster compribed 850 men. Twenty-four were killed in battle or died in the Manila hospital, ami the rest of the sick and wounded, to the number of seven, are on tho Hospital ship Relief, which will probably arrive hero within the next few days. The quarantine officer boarded the Sen ator and after a careful inspection passed crew and passengers. Tho transport, had dropped anchor off the Folsoni Street wliart and it was decided that the regiment should not be landed until today. Under cover of darkness, how ex er, two privates slipped off in a tug, dropping down by a lope which had been used to haul up two sacks of mail matter sent out by the postmaster to the regiment. The privates who thus absented them seh es vv ithout leave announced their mteutiou of seeiud the town last night aud of lcjomiugthc ranks when the regiment was lined up on tho dock to day. As the official committee on re ceptiou to tho regiment will not arrive here from Philadelphia until this even ing, the substitute committee appointed lufoiin.Uly undertook that duty. A tug had been chattered for today with the expectation that the Senator would not arrive last night aud arrangements made to go out to meet the transport with a band, stacks of flowers and tons cf dain ties for the soldiers. Tho premature ap pearance of the transport last evening, however, did not permit the carrying Out of all these plaits, bat tho commit tee, comprising John Barclay of Greens burg, Fa., who had come out in ad vanco of the regular committee, of which he is a member, to meet his badly wounded brother of the Tenth, who is on tho Relief; John M. Beall, agent here of tho Piedmont Air Lino, formerly of Philadelphia; Alex Coul ter, Greensburg, Pa.; M. M. Ogdon of Governor Gage's 6taff, formerly a Pitts burg newspaper man; M. M. Lear of Denver, formerly or Greensburg, whose brother, W. A. Lear, is captain in tne Tenth; Colonel Henry Hall of tne Pittsburg Times, a member of Gov- ernorStone's staff, and James A. Camp bell of the Philadelphia Times, has tily embarked and wire alongside tne Senator, extending a warm greeting to their fellow Pcnnsylvanians aud wel coming the bra e lads back to their na tive laud. Out of respect to tho dead regimental commander, there was little cheering or other noisyrdemoustratious.but the men quietly expressed their delight at the first glimpso of the Golden Gate. Like the Oregon and Nebraska regiments, the Pennsylvania troops, prior to sailing from Manila, voted in favor of beinK mnstered out in San Francisco. Lieutenant Colonel Barnett, who is now in command of the regiment, in the course of an interview, said: "The boys are all glad, of course, to get back home again, but their joy is ringed with sadness on account of the death of Colonel Hawkins. "The colonel Mas a most kind and considerate commander, who took a keeu individual interest in his men aud it is little wouder that they feel his loss a personal bereavement. "Colonel Hawkins was a sick man at the beginning of the campaign which ended in the capture of Malolos. Tho regimental surgeon had advised him to retire for rest aud medical attention. COI.OM-.1 A L. nAWKlNS. but, tho tolonel peremptorily refused, declaring that he would go wherever his men went. "When the final volley was fired at Malolos, Colonel Hawkins was right in front ot the firing line, urging his men onward and encouraging them with his exhibition of personal bravery. After that decisive battle the colonel's illness increased. The ailment developed rap idly in the unhealthy climate. After we embarked ho sank steadily and his death at sea was not unexpected."

Hawkins has had a political record of some interest, as well as a military one, being now the representative from the Washington and Beaver district in the state senate. He was elected to this office while on his way to the Philip pines, ard had no opposition, receiving a phenomenal vote In the district.

Added to Dr. Wasdin's fig ures, sent to Dr. Wyman the diy be fore, this made 40 cases in all which had occurred at the home, of which eight had proved fatal. Surgeon White telegraphed Dr. Wyman that in his opinion there was little doubt that there had been some fever infection in the neighboring village of Phoebus, but the surgeon general said that this dis patch had not been followed by any evi dence of a positive case at that plave. Should the fever develop there, how ever, no surprise would be felt, in view of the proximity of the place to the Sol diers' home and the mixing of the in mates of the institution with the people of Phoebus.

The gov ernment, he declared, had accepted the terms of the United States without dis cussion and when ho telegraphed to Gentral Toral it was too late. San tiago, he added, had tar from an insuf ficient garrison. Condemns Lack of Transport Service. London, Aug. 2.
