The Czar's Way.
SLITTLE item In last night's news
shows that Rusla can blow hot
or cold. At The Hague the
czar's people are all of the olive-branch
p-ersuasion. They are for peace, for ar
bitration, for the friendly adjustment
of differences and all that sort of thing.
But out in the oriental region Russia is
otherwise minded, and her representa
'tives pursue other tactics. A few days
ago it was announced in cable dis
patehers'hat the Russian government
waits just a little more in the way of
sias-.dions than was secured under the
arrangement whereby England and
Russia "conceded" to t emselves every
thing in sight that they thought they
wanted in China.
'What the czsr wanted was a. little
more railroad right of way so that he
could extend his Siberian road to Pekin
-that was the matter of recent tele
graphic mention. China declined, the
theory at Pekin was that Russia had
snatched enough and that the line must
be drawn. What does the czar do? He
informs his minister at Pekin to an
diounce to the proper authorities that
Russia is "unable to accept the Chinese
refusal of a railway concession and
that Russian engineers will be sent at
once to survey the line that will con
nect the czar's road with Pekin."
And what will old China do then. poor
thing? Send a man to The Hague con
ference? That would, in all probability,
amount to as much as anything else
China could do; and that certainly
would amount to nothing. It's the way
'the czar has when he wants anything
which he knows he can steal and not
have to fight for.
Some of the Wastes.
ORE'S the pity. General Law
ton, resting his forces, after a
month of campaigning, reports
that he has swept over a large area
of country, destroyed two hundred
thousand bushels of rice, one hundred
and sixty-five tons of sugar and ten
thousand bushels of corn. "The sup
plies I destroyed," so Lawton sums it
up, "would feed an army of thirty
thousand men six months." As to fight
ing, the total was twenty-two engage
ments, of which ten "were severe."
Even more gloomy is the news, which
appears to find confirmation, to the ef
feet that the members of the York
town's crew, who as the result of a
misadventure were made captives, are
having a rough experience at the hands
of their captors. Perhaps, in view of
Filipino methods, these men may thank
their stars that up to date they are
alive to tell the tale of what they are
ienduring. General Lawton was not
able to teach these prisoners; he
speaks as if he could get to them in a
Ssix-day march, if meanwhile the peace
'aegotiations are not concluded.
-It Is to be hoped that the dicker with
SAguinaldo's commissioners will not fall
through and that peace will he speedily
reached. General Lawton's belief is
'that, when hostilities are ended, ther,
will be no difficulty in getting along
pleasantly with the natives. That is a
pleasant, hopeful view; even those who
do not share it will gladly accept the
suggestion that Lawton is on the
ground and ought to know.
W ILLIAM J. BRYAN has written
a strong article for the New
York Journal in favor of the
proposttion so to amend the constitu
tion as to permit the people to elect
their senators in rongress instead of
having them appointed by the legisla
ture. Mr. Bryan begins by quoting
Brice, who credits James it. Weaver
of Iowa with introducling the first pro
posal to amend the constitution in this
relpeet. It was on January 31, 1681.
that Mr. Weaver introduced his con
atitutional amendment doing away with
the appointing power now vested In
I the legislature under section third,
article one, and providing that "the
senate of the United States shall be
composed of two senators from each
state, to be chosen by the vote of the
qualified electors in said states respect
ively, and at such time as shall be de
termined by act of congress." Then
iMr. Bryan adds: "If the subject was
brought before congress at an earlier
date I am not aware of it." The Utica,
N. Y., Observer claims priority in favor
of Scott Lord, who was elected to the
house in 1876 from the congressional
district of which Utica is a part. There
had been no great senatorial scandals
up to that time. It is true that several
carpetbaggers had crept into the senate
and that Pomeroy of Kansas had com
passed his election by bribery. But
such a thing as the candidacy of Clark
and Addicks and Quay was then un
Still It Comes.
r \ 4 ORE kind words" for Mayor
McCarthy in the columns of
the Miner. That newspaper
keeps right on pumping "advice" into
the mayor with the light and airy gen
erosity of a free-lunch counter and
with as much showing of earnestness
as if the mayor were likely to listen to
a word of it.
When he was nominated for mayor.
Mr. McCarthy was placed on a platform
that sternly denounced W. A. Clark's
purchase of the senatorship. That was
right, because not one of 'the thirteen
Silver Bow democrats who represented
Montana in the legislative session sold
out to Clark. The Miner threatened to
defeat Mr. McCarthy terribly ift he ran
on that platform, but McCarthy did.
and-well, as everybody knows, Mc
Carthy is mayor.
Then, later on, the Miner gave Mayor
McCarthy advice about all sorts of mat
ters, but it covertly threatened him and
promised to do all sorts of things to
him if he appointed Mr. Lamb to the
office of city attorney-the Miner's mis
ery being that Mr. Lamb, as a member
of the legislatdre, did not sell his vote
to Clark; he is one of the thirteen dem
ocratic, members for Silver Bow county
whom the Miner calls "automatons."
Then, still a little later on, the mayor,
all heedless of the Miner's threats and
advice, appointed Mr. Lamb. The
Miner tried hard to "queer" the ap
pointment, and flunked, of course. The
public can see why the Miner should
feel so badly upset over this failure; the
point with the public is that it is will
ing Ito let the Miner feel bad and will
ing also to accept and approve the ap
pointment of Mr. Lamb.
And sfill it comes-more Miner ad
vice for Mayor McCarthy. We do not
exactly catch the drift of 'this latest
effusion but, as nearly as we can gather,
it appears to be the Miner's wish that
Mayor McCarthy should hold a meet
ing and resolve that somehow his ad
ministration is a rank failure; that
seems ,to be the gist of it. Whether the
mayor is going to keep right on paying
no attention to these chapters of Miner
advice, we cannot tell. We have heard
it said thatMr. MoCarth% is a kind
hearted sort of man. Perhaps, taking
his cue from what the Aguinaldo fel
lows said to the peace commissioners,
he will tell the Miner by and by that
really he is sorry for it personally but
r RENCHMEN have no difficulty
in finding grounds for an insult
that requires a duel for its set
tlement. Yesterday morning's press
dispatch told of a ludicrous affair in
Parts which was the outcome of a hot
discussion 1between two fools as to
whether Hamlet was fat or lean. The
item is of no account in the world, as
the two French fighters are not, except
as it revives the story of a long-ago
threatened duel in which one of the par
'ticipants was John F. Potter of Wis
consin, whose death, at the age of
eighty-two years, is announced.
The incident occurred nearly forty
years ago, when Potter was a member
of the national house of representa
tives as one of the Wisconsin delega
tion. In those days the North, as a
rule, sent peaceably disposed men to
congress; the spirit in that section was
against duelling. The southern mem
bers took advantage of it to dare their
northern associates to the duel, and
they were in the habit of taunting them
with a lack of courage when they re
fused to resort to it.
The conditions were 'rather trying.
The southerners might engage in a
duel, and go back home to be lionized
because they had done so. The north
erners, on the other hand, had to meet
a home sentiment which regarded duel
ling as an un-Christian proceeding, bet
ter adapted to barbarism than to civill
zatlon. The public mind at the North
had become so aroused by the overbear
ing spirit of the southern members of
congress that it had been brought to a
readiness to forgive almost anything
which should meet and overcome the
arrogance displayed in congress. Thus it
was brought at last to pardon Mr.
Potter, and even to glory in his
In 1860, congress engaged in an angry
debate which had its origin in the mur
der of Elijah P. Lovejoy. During this
debate, sharp words were interchanged
by Mr. Potter and Roger A. Pryor, at
that time a young Virginian of the fire
eating kind. The result was that Pryor
challenged Potter to a duel. Potter
promptly accepted and, having the
choice as 'to the conditions for the fight,
he named bowie knives and a darkened
That was not the kind of an engage
mnent Pryor had planned, and he backed
doo n. Potter became a paseing hero
throughout the North, while Pryor was
left to explain things to the southern
bloods. The incident occasioned no end
of talk. Among other things, it is told,
on Mr. Potter's authority, we believe,
that at the roll call in 'ongress, at the
time of Ithe proposed meeting, when
Potter's name was reached, the re
sponse was: "He is keeping a Pryor
engagement," and that when Pryor's
name was reached the answer ,as:
"He has gone to be made into Potter's
Not all of the "affairs of honor" in
volving members of congress reached a
termination so harmless as in the Pot
ter-Pryor case, although there was no
damage done in the Brooks-Burlingame
affair which ofcurred just a few years
before the civil war. Brooks was the
South Carolina congressman who, in
1856, had attacked Charles Sumner with
a cane. Burlingame, of Massachusetts,
was. later on, the first United States
minister to China. These tiwo engaged
in a heated debate in the house and
Brooks gave a challenge. Burlingame
promptly accepted, Canada was select
ed as the place of meeting and rifles
were to be the weapons. Brooks failed
to appear; his plea was that he would
have to "pass through the enemy's
country" to get there.
More serious was the duel of earlier
date between William J. Graves, of
Kentucky, and Jonathan Cilley, of
Maine, both esteemed members of the
house. These men fought with rifles,
in the knowledge of the use of which
it was thought Cilley had the advan
tage, but Graves killed Cilley by what
was very likely a chance shot. The ex
citement in the country became intense.
There were several parties in'and out
of congress involved in the affair. Cilley
left a young wife and family bereaved,
and the life of Graves was wrecked by
what he had done. He left public life
as a victim of remorse from his act,
and is said to have been a broken
hearted man always after.

on board the Olympia:

am not sorry to leave Manila at this

responsibility much longer. It is vastly

than issue them. It is the responsbibPity
that kills. During the year that has
elapsed since we came to Manila, I have
not had one sick day until now. A
year is long enough in this clinate for
an old man, and I am glad to be per
mitted to rest. On this account I ex
pect to be permitted to remain in Hong
Kong two weeks. That ought to re
cuperate me. My intention is to spend
the time at Victqria peak, where I hope
to be absolutely free from worry. No
body is more sensible of the kindness
of the people who have extended me in
vitations, but I do not wish for enter

at present. Two weeks of perfect rest
at the peak ought to make a new man

to see America possess the key to

brains of our great country will develop

on another great war. We will never

and in future years the idea that any

Middleweight Amateur Championship of
the Coast Decided.
San Francisco, May 24:-At the Olym
plc club to-night, J. McDonald of San
Francisco beat E. Johnson of the Mult
noýnah Athletic club of Portland for the
miifdleweight amateur championship of
the Pacific coast, in five rounds. Mc
Donald, who proved to be a rough
fighter took every advantage allowed
under the rules and punched Johnson
rather severely. Johnson started out
well in the first round, landing a good
right on McDonald's jaw, but failed 'o
show up well in the succeeding rounds.
He appeared overdrawn and stale. In
the fifth round McDonald knocked
Johnson down four times before the
referee called a halt and gave the decis
ion to the San Francisco man. John
son was only remarkable for the
amount of punishment he withstood.

STARCHING A SHIRT PROPERLY.
A Simple Operation That Only a Few
From the Gentlewoman for May.
After they have become "bone dry"
put the shirts, collars and cuffs through
a wheat starch made by pouring foam
ing hot water over a smooth batter
obtained by stirring wheat flour and
cold water together until it is the con
sistency of thin cake batter This
should be boiled slowly for two hours
and then strained through a cheese
cloth to leave it perfectly free of
lumps. All to each quart of boiling
starch a teaspoonful of white wax, such
as is especially prepared for laundry
The secret of a good smooth finish
to stiff starched clothes is in the method
of starching. This must be carefully
done. Spread the shirt bosom over a
clean board, and with a piece of thin
cloth rub the starch Into the bosom
with strong, firm strokes. There should
not be a wrinkle in the linen after it
is thoroughly wet and starched, and all
superfluous starch Is wiped off with a
cloth. The wristbands and neckbands
are treated the same way, and the
shirt is again hung out to dry. When
It is thoroughly dry--"bone dry"-the
shirt and collars and cuffs are dipped
for a moment in boiling water and
quickly wrung through a wringer with
the rollers pressed as tight together as
they can be turned. The pieces should
now be left to stand for at least two
hours before they are ironed.
