The surplus of receipts over expen
ditures during the fiscal year which
ended Saturday will exceed $80,000,000,

added. But the people are still llcklnc

Lieutenant Commander Charles A.
Adams, second In command of the
Oregon, and on whom Captain Wllde
had to depend when he was oft the
bridge himself, was courtmartlaled in
February, 1893, for drunkenness while
on duty and was reprimanded by
Secretary Long. Two months later he
repeated the offense and was dismissed
from the service. The findings of the
court were set aside by President Mc
Klnley and Adams was simply reduc
ed In rank. He and a lot of other in
experienced and unreliable men were

The war In South Africa is still giv

that his men have not found the veldt

too, Is not what it ought to be and
Roberts has reported officially , that
matters are not Just to his liking,
though he blames no one. He says In
his report that at Bloemfontein alone
0,369 soldiers were admitted to the
hospitals and that of this number 1,370
died. In other hospitals the death rate
was about the same. Before the
trouble is over the British will have

Candidate Roosevelt Called on Editor
Kohlsaat in Chicago. Mr. Roosevelt
was evidently anxious to learn how
tho western editor was going to get
out of his pre-convention statements
that an attempt was being made to dig
a hole for Roosevelt and put him In It
to stay, the hole being the empty vlce
presldentlal nomination. Thus far Mr.
Kohlsaat has not been able to make
a satisfactory explanation In his paper
and there Is a growing suspicion that
he is himself occupying a hole quite as
narrow and quite as deep as that of
the vice-presidential nominee. Mr.
Kohlsaat Is respectfully referred to
Judge William R. Day's most lucid and
exciting atempt at versification, which
he has used with telling effect on oc
casion: He digged a pit,
He digged It deep,
He digged It for his brother;
But through his sin
He did fall In
The pit he digged for t'other.
The Cleveland Leader Is going to
spring the same thing for several days
now. The chief of staff, who reported
the Philadelphia convention, has gone
to Kansas Cltjj, and Is having more
spasms, At the" Philadelphia conven
tion he told how Hanna was talking
In his sleep and how Piatt and Quay
were traitors and bad citizens generally.
Then he got home and woke up. He
suddenly discovered that all the stuff
he had been writing had been the
veriest rot and nothing of the sort had
occurred. In one of his specials he saw
things "with strained ears" and there
was a. general delerlum aboul ills re
ports. Now ho has commenced to
write about "minds fog?y and askew"
and the worst Is feared. Eastern diet
seemed to affect his ears but the
western brand Is "eskewlng" his mind.
What an awful state the poor Leader
will be In by Thursday.
Mll.SNYDKIt'S MOCK SESSION.
The suggestion of Speaker pro tern
Jacob B. Snyder, of the Ohio leglsla
ture, through the News-Democrat, that
a mock session of the legislature be
held In Canton as a Fourth of July at
traction Is one of the most superla'
tlvely exciting propositions that has
been made In connecton with the cele
bration of the nation's natal day. The
suggestion ought to be adopted with
out any delay. Wo are going to have
all kinds of attractions, there will be
eminent men here from everywhere, tho
fireworks display will be enormous and
the parades stupendous, but the com
mittee has Inadvertently omitted the
Ohio legislature. The matter should be
corrected at once. A session of the
legislature would draw. The fact that
It Is a mock session can be entirely
overlooked especially by those who
have seen a real, session. Of course
Speaker Pro Tern Snyder will preside.
Then they could get up a bill and dis
cuss It and exemplify, as Mr. Snyder
suggests, the work and methods of the
legislature. But to make the session
complete It will be necessary to go
beyond the mere discussion of a bill.
There must be some hot speeches on
political Issues and the speaker pro
tern must be given the opportunity to
declare that he Is "physically and men
tally able to take care of himself and
will meet any legislator In the hall or
out of It." This feature was not
eliminated from the regular session and
should not be here.
Again, the mock session would have
the advantage of bringing to the city
some of Ohio's most picturesque citi
zens. It would never do to conduct the
thing without the presence of the Hon
orable John P. Jones. Then If we can
get Mayor McKlsson It will be possible,
with little difficulty, to conduct a sena
torial election. No session of a legisla
ture, mock or regular, is complete
without a senatorial election. Besides,
It will relieve the committee of the
payment of mileage and will give the
mock legislators some firecracker
money. Mr. Hanna, having volunteer
ed to have something to do with the
celebration, may come and conduct a
senatorial campaign and show us just
how the thing Is done. He could get
somebody to let him into the Hurford
house and then he could opes mock
headquarters there. Everything could
be conducted from there but the tele
phoning and that could be done right
In the room where the session Is to
be held. They could get a couple of tin
cans, stretch catgut over the ends and
put one In one corner of the room and
one In another, stretching & string be
tween them. Then a cute little Charlie
Dick could be whittled out of a stick
and put at one end of the telephone
nnd a toy Major Rathbone nt the other
end. It would be impossible to secure
the original major for he has an en
gagement In Cuba Just now that Is
said to be quite pressing and the white
wash will hardly have had time to
dry before the Fourth, so he is quite
out of the question. While the tele
phoning was going on "Buddy" Jones
could add to the interest by arising
and saying, "Mr. Speaker, I appre
hend " and so on. Thus the session
could have a good deal of noise to off
set tho pounding of the drums and the
shooting of bombs on the outside, but
when they wanted to have a real re
poseful time, with absolute quiet, the
clerk could take up the Clark bill, and
call the name of J, B. Snyder. The
silence would take on that degree of
consistency that chunks of it couid be
thrown out of the window Into the
crowded streets, neutralizing the tu
multuous noises for a block each way.
A serious matter In connection with
Speaker pro (em Snyder's suggestion Is
a suitable hall for the mock sessions.
The great crowds that will flock In to
see the legislature cannot well be taken
care of In one hall; and there will be
great crowds. Canton will have the
greatest Fourth of July celebration
that was ever given In the state and
the crowds will be Immense. iSo If
all wanted to see tho legislature It
would create a terrific Jam. Tho
tabernacle Is not available and the
Grand opera house has no rear exit,
as it must be apparent that the crowd
will have to keep moving If all are to
get a glimpse of the session, There
Is only one place that suggests Itself as
suitable and that Is the county Jail.
The sessions could be held In the Jail
corridor and tho crowds could pass In
tho front entrance, through the place
where Speaker pro tern Snyder le
wielding the gavel and on out through
the sheriff's hole' in, the window, The
entrance is conceded to, be sufficiently
spacious and the exit has, on several
occasions, recently, proved amply ade
quate for several persons abreast
The suggestion of Speaker prd tern
Snyder Is most happy, and the time and
place most appropriate. By all means,
gentlemen of the committee, 1ft us
have the mock session.

Instructive Session at Mrs.
The regular monthly meeting of the
Canton Suffrage association was held at
the home of the president, Mrs. J. A.
Rice, Saturday afternoon. There were
about twenty ladies present and the
meeting was both Interesting and In
structive. Upon the call of the roll each woman
responded with the name of a prominent
woman and a few worda telling why
she was prominent. "
1 "Why I am a Suffragist," was the
subject of the meeting and each of the
members was expected to tell. After
an Interesting conversation led by Mrs,
Emma C. Harmount there was a discus
sion of the women of Colorado and Utah
from the suffrage standpoint.
Mrs. Rice gave an excellent talk In
which she gave some of the reasons
why equal suffrage should prevail.
The next meeting of the club will be

New York, July 2-It Is not yet posJ
sdble to learn with any degree' of ex
actness the number ot lives lost In the
great fire which swept tho Hoboken
water front Saturday, and destroyed
three ocean liners belonging to tho
North German Lloyd Steamship Co.,
and poet property valued at hundreds of
thousands of dollars. Twenty-two bod
ies or fragments of o many bodies have
been recovered. More than 200 others,
It Is believed, are In the charred hulks-
of tho steamers or beneath the waters
of the Hudson. Tho estimates of the
number vary. Gustav H. Schwab, agent
of the company, places tho loss of life
of men connected with his company be
tween 125 and 160. He- believes that In
addition to these a considerable num
ber of longshoremen and visitors to the
steamers lost their lives. Ho could not
estimate the number, but the police and
others place the number at one hundred
at least. The estimate of 2S0 Is the most
conservative. Other estimates place
the loss at 300 and over.
The search for the bodies of the vic
tims was renewed at daylight this morn
ing. Divers and grapplers by the score
were put to work on the wreck of tho
Saale,' grounded off Ellis Island, the
Main and Bremen beached near Wee
hawken and around the stumps of the
