THE WELLINGTON ENTERPRISE. WEDNESDAY. AUGUST 10, 1898.
I t' v i i ! : J: I v 4 t t I: '"' i v.; 'i 'I THE ENTERPRISE PUBLISHED EVERY WEDNESDAY. THE FRENCH PRINTING COMPANY O. L. COUCH, RECEIVER. SUBSCRIPTION. PAYABLE IN ADVANCE. One Year tl-00 8U Mouths 50 WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 10, 1898. The achievement of the American gun ners will not be relished by those per sons who have always contended for the superiority of foreign institutions. The Maine Democrats have imported a New Hampshire man to run against Tom Reed. The Maine democrats have doubt less become tired of the thankless job. Ambassador Cumbou had quite a job on his hands, but it was mere child's play compared to the task of the mau who tries to bring about peace in the Democratic party. Blanco is not ilie originator of the mule .process of canipaiguiug. It will be recalled that the late Wil'iuui Burnuni experimented with "mules" in the In diana campaign of 1884. The exchange ot message between Presideut McKiuley and the Confederate veterans is another thing that will incur the displeasure of the professional friends ot the constitution. Leader Joe Bailey wanted General Joe Wheeler's seat in Congress declared va cant and there is a mau in Alabama who is mean enough to try and defeat the gallant old man for renominaiiou. Yet we go aliead talking ol the meanness ot the Spaniards. A prominent Democrat, while discuss ing the bill for raising revenue in the House of Kepreseuuuves recently, said: "The highest ideal of pulriulisin is that which will upliuld the Uovermeut at this time in a vigorous prosecution of the war." lie then voted against the bill providing for raising of revenue. If our soldiers in the held were to be clothed, fed, and paid, under the pro vision of the substitute offered 'by Mr. Bailey to the late war-tax measure, provided for raising revenue by an in come tax, we would like for some one wise in fiscal matters to tell us how much benefit the Treasury would have received up till this time, if Mr. Bailey's substitute had become the law of the land. The hated bondholder, who has been the target at which Democrats and Pop ulists have been hurling their epithets for a long time, must now congratulate him self that 300,000 new bond holders have been added to the list, so that in the future the Democrat who attempts to exhaust the English vocabulary in abusing these people, must remember that it will re quire increased energy on his part by reason ot the increased number of bond holders. There is occasionally some very fast driving right in the business streets, constantly frequented by children on wheels in the dusk of the evening, who take great risks in their riding. Scorch ing or speeding a fast horse as we often Bee it , makes it unsafe for those past the agility of youth, those who are at all deaf, aud for anyone with every sense alert, it is a nice trick to avoid collision with these pre-emtors of highway and sidewalk, who are out at all hours ot the day and late into the night. To voters in 1898, we commend Scotch proverb which says: the "If a mau deceives me once, the Lord forgive him; If he deceives me twice, the Lord for give me." How about the national election in 1892 was anybody deceived? Divine goodness may have covered the deception that followed aud made millions mourn, but the deceived ones should hesitate be fore they trust these false prophets & gain. - - i - It is estimated that the war is costing about $1,0U,01H) per day, and must neC' essarily increase as active operations are pushed forward. The plan of the Re publican party for providing for this enormous expense is being everywhere endorsed as the best aud wisest tluit could have been adopted; namely, the increasing of the internal-revenue taxes aud the issuing of bonds at a low rate of interest; all of which was opposed by the Democratic party, as shown by the almost solid vote against the bill when it was considered and passed. A prominent Democrat from one of the western states, in addressing the house receutly on the question of war, used the following language: "This war will do good in more than one direction. It will drive Spain out of the Western hemisphere, free Cuba, aud once more call attention to the financial question, forcing the opening of this is sue, aud demonstrate to the satisfaction of the Nation the fact that the double- standard men are now and ever hav been the advocates of the correct finan cial theory." Cuba is not free yet, but Cubans have discovered that a 10 to 1 silver dollor is a depreciated coin and is only good npon the promise of the Goverment to redeem the same, FARMERS! The demagogues of false reform and unkept promises will have a hard year in discussing national problems in the presence of the farmers of the United States. No class of our great industrial commonwealth have become so thorough ly convinced of the actual results inci dent to party changes and party man agement as have the farmers. In 1892 they broke away from the republican party and gave support to the democratic cause, believing in some of the things, at least, that had been promised. But after four years of the greatest struggle that agriculture has ever had in the his tory of the country in order to maintain the home and retain the farm, they were brought to face the proposition in 1896 and answer the question whether they had better not return to republican sup port. Many of them did so. McKinley's election lias been worth more to the ag ricultural interests of the United States as an object lesson than all the speeches and homilies that have ever been deliv ered touching' the results of political economy as effecting the farm. - Village Improvement. Could we not have dry goods boxes placed at intervals on our streets to re ceive the litter of paper and other tilings thrown away or blown about and dis figuring park and sidewalks and street? Fruit skins, a menace to safety, are al lowed to lie and fester in the sun and at tract flies. How much more attractive would the town be if this little matter could be taken in hand, even by the children and so cultivtivate them love of neatness and order. Cannot public in teligence be aroused in favor of clean streets? In the crowded east side dis tricts in New York the children have been organized into small companies having specific districts under their care, educating them to tne laws gov erning the cleaningof the streets and to the responsibilities of the people who use them as to their appearance. '1 his is a sanitary as well as ethical proposi tion. Sunday morning after the exodus of the Saturday night crowd, and espec ially after the lawn fete in the park what a spectacle is presented in peanut shucks, paper boxes, orange and banana skins loose paper, every kind of unsight ly litter in the heart of the town. Clean up! Pick up! burn up or bury the litter. Observer. LITERARY NOTES. Perhaps nothing has shown the won derful adaptability of, the average Amer ican more than the way in which the men of the greatest differences in train ing, birth, and condition, drawn with an impartial estimate of fitness from all over the country, and now composing the already historic "Rough Riders," have been able to siuk every considera tion of heartily in the sprit of discipline and daring which has brought the troop to its present condition of effectiveness. From the cowboy, whose feats in the saddle have been the admiration of a border people who have known the Apaches, to the college man who has been cheered from the "bleachers" for his track athletics, we believe a large span may be fetched; but the unanimity of spirit aud high patriotism prevailing throughout the troop has brought them together shoulder, to shoulder. This is nil." I. PIUH'-l , . i I rarely fine, and preaches a whole re ligion for the success of what is best in our republic. When one inquires what centralizing force has been able to bring this singleness of aim about, the answer is unavoidable that it has been the con vincing personality aud charm of Col onel Theodore Roosevelt. Since Theodore Roosevelt graduated from Harvard in 1SS0 he has played many parts. In political life, he has been a New York state assemblyman, United States civil service commissioner, police commissioner of New York city, and assistant secretary of the navy. In liter ature he is well known as the author of several historical works, and descriptions and Btories of western frontier life. When Roosevelt organized his troop the president offered to make him colonel, but he declined a commission. "I am not fitted to command a regi ment," he said, "for I have had no mili tary training. Later, after I have gained some experience, perhaps that may come." It has come now, and also rec ommendation for the medal of honor for gallant conduct in action. Pictures of the Rough Riders and the other forces' that took part in the seige of Santiago, from photographs taken dnrlng the engagement, will be found in the Santiago (July 30) number of Harp er's Weekly. x! & OBITUARY. Mrs. Thalia Kitchen was born in Se ville, Nov. 6, 1873, but her childhood was spent in the states of Michigan and Vir ginia. When she was eighteen, her parents re-! turned to Ohio aud settled in Penfield, and she came to Wellington to live. She carried the effects of scarlet fever, which about two years ago began to develop in to consumption. Last winter, she was compelled to leave her work and go home. With the spring came hope of returning health, aud on May 12, she was married to Mr. Jerry Kitchen. In June, an attack 0 pleurisy prostrated her and her life was despared of, but the disease left, and she began to rally, and her friends be came hopeful that she would recover, but on Aug. 1 a relapse occurred and she rap idly failed, passing away at midnight, Aug. 2. During her stay in Wellington, she was associated with the Baptist Church, uniting by baptism April 3, 1897. Her Christian hope sustained her and kept her patient and uncomplaining during her lingering illness, and when she learned that her physicians had given up all hope of hu- recovery, she said she was rea''.y to die, and that it would be better than to suiter and be a burden to those she loved. She had many friends and among the warmest were those in whoso homes she had Jived, and who knew her patient, cheerful character best. Funeral service was held Aug. 5, at the M. E. church, Penfield, conducted by her pastor and Rev. F. E. Baker. Her body was laid to rest in the hope of that immortality which is revealed by the Lord Jesus Christ. Mr. Jerry Kitchen wishes to thank the many friends for their kindness and ex pressions of sympathy in his bereave ments. Letter from F. W. Dennett. Morley's Hotel, Trafalgar Square, London, England. Dear Children: We told you in our last letter what a delightful trip over we had; all pleasant weather, not a day but what we lived on deck. And now how we wish you could be here aud sit out on the balcony and see the strange sights. We face Trafalgar Square with its Nelson monument and look towards Re gent street and see the stream of 'buses, cabs, aud other vehicles, some going down the Strand, others by the hotel, and the stream of people, it is very in teresting to watch it. Your mother en joys it as much as I do, and I think we will have no end of fun. Everything is so strange here when yon get off a train. I had to go and claim my trunk, call a porter, who are stauding around, plenty of them, who shoulders it and carries it to a cab, and I give him a "two-pence." Your mother told you about our ride on top of a 'bus. It is a great place to see Loudon. If we get a sunny day I am going to take a dozen photographs from there aud I think they will be fine. To-morrow we expect to commence seeing London systematically. I think we will go to Westminster Abbey in the morning after your mother gets through her shopping. I can't begin to tell you how it impresses one to see so many things that we have read about so many times, Westminister, St. Paul's, the Parliment House, Pall Mall St. and the Thames river, aud so much that we ex pect to see every day. It seems as though every street that I see the name of I have read about in some English novel. I think of Chris. McDerniott and how much he told us about London aud im agine him sitting out on this little bal cony as we come out of the hotel, look ing on the same scenes as we are now. Well it is getting lale aud I must close with love to mother and all our friends in Wellington. Your father, F. W. Bennett. ion will be sure to get your money s worth of fun if you take in the show Sat urday night. A Liliel Ciiae. As an outgrowth of the prosecutions against. Pcolt's Emulsion by Joseph E, Blackburn, dairy and food commissioner of Ohio, Scott & Bowue, the proprietors of this preparation, have conimenced;pro ceedings against Mr. Blackburn in the city of New York for the sum of $200,000 damages, which they claim to have sus tained by reason of the publication and circulation of false and libelous analyses of Scott's Emulsion by Mr. Blackburn. Scott & Bowue assert that the prosecu tions against Scott s Emulsion were brought maliciously and unjustly by the department, and that they have shown the food commissioner by abundant proof that their goods are absolutely innocent of the charges that the food department has made against them. Mr. Blackburn was served with the papers in the suit while on a trip to New York city. Details of the suit will be obtained up on the return of Mr. Bowne, who is at preseut out of New York city, i Cures KlieumatUm.

The following letter was received this morning from Mrs. Catharine Avery, f tha W. E. R. B., Cleveland: Mrs. S. K. Laundon, Dear Madam: While we trust that the time is not far distant when the need of our services will be over, just now there seems to be more necessity for our help than ever. There is so much suffering among the boys that we must not weary in well doing quite yet, even if peace is declar ed, another foe threatens them more dangerous than the Spaniard the yel low fever. Soldiers' Relief Society of Wellington, Miss R. II. Palmer, Cor. Secy., Dear Madam: Your barrel and package has just come in aud the barrel will go as it is to Santiago. We are trying very hard lo get all the supplies possible to that point to stop the suffering among our boys. It is dreadful that our boys should suf fer so when we are so willing and able to help them. Many of our things go to the Red C'mss, New York, and the Hospi tal vofi'N Mshingti'ii, with orders to geiw.u to Santiago and Porto Rico as soon as poasiole. S e are often informed of the di.te of sailing of hospital ships and told u ve will get our supplies there on such a date they will go on the ship. We always get them there and have sent to nearly every ship that has sailed. Just now we are trying to fit up certain things for the Porto Ri"o ship. Through the help furnished by the aux iliaries, we were able to send a large consignment on a rush call to New York for the ship that sails Monday night for Santiago. The magnificent work of the auxiliar ies fills my heart with joy. I am so glad that it is my department. I feel drawn so close to the women of northern Ohio. They are doing the grandest, most effec tive work ever done. There is very little waste energy. I have gotten onto the second page of my book for your society. With many thanks for your noble work, cordially yours, Catharine Avery. The Soldier's Reiief Society shipped on Saturday a barrel containing the fol lowing articles: 28 jars fruit, (19 glasses jelly, (5 cans condensed milk, 1 can cocoa, 2 packages cornstarch, 1 package prunes, 1 package sage, 1 package dried beef, 1 pillow, 27 magazines, 1 sheet, 2 rolls old cotton, 6 night shirts, (i pajamas, 5 pairs slippers.
