WEDNESDAY, DEC 5,1900. OtPIOIAL PAMW OP OITV AND COUNTY Imperialism Old And New. Sir, we are told that this country can do anything, Constitution or no Con stitution. We are a great people,— great in war, great in peace,—but we •re not greater than the people who once conquered the world, not with Jong range guns and steel-clad ships, but with the short Bword of the Roman legion and the wooden galleyB that Bailed across the Adriatic. The colonial system destroyed all hope of republican ism in the olden time. It is an appan age of monarchy. It can exiBt I know not what may be done with the glamor of foreign conquest and the greed of the commercial and money making classes in this country. For myself, I'would rather quit public life •nd would be willing to risk life itself rather than give my consent to this fan tastic and wicked attempt to revolu tionize our Government and substitute the principles of our hereditary enemies for the teachings of Washington and his associates.—From a speech in the United States Senate, December 12th, 1886... vasion of Cigarette Tax, Duplicity of Tobacco Trust. The legislature of Iowa imposed a tax of $300 per annnm upon all persons telling cigarettes or cigarette paper in the State and made it a criminal offence to sell such articles without having first paid the tax. A federal court decided that a state had no right to Impose such a tax, fol lowing the "original package" decisions of which we heard so much in prohibi tlon times. An appeal was taken to the United States Supreme Court, and pending a determination of the ciga rette law in that tribunal the tobacco trust, known as the American Tobacco Co., undertook to indemnify ail their customers against loss or damage aria tag in any way out of the Bale of ciga rettes, cigarette paper or wrappers in vi olation of the laws of the state. Deal ers who consulted lawyers were un doubtedly told that a bond to indemni fy against loss arising out of a viola tion of a'criminal statute was against public policy and could not be enforced. Many dealers, however, relied upon the trait's promises of protect"oa and ciga rettes have been sold In nearly every town in tho state in direct violation of the statute on the subject. A few weeks ago the United States Supreme Court got around to the ciga litte case, and held that the several states had the power to regulate or pro hibit the sale of cigarettes in any and all kinds ot packages. Now there is a general scramble on the part of the late vendors of these goods to find out about the validity of their contracts of indem nity. They will probably be told by a kind mannered representative of the tobacco trust that, the contracts art£(n- Tilld because they tare entered into for the purpose of inducing persons to do unlawful acts. That is good law and the trust undoubtedly relied upon It as a complete shield from liability. Bnt we have some more law here in Iowa that may not be so well known to the trnBt officials. Our courts may hold that money paid for articles to be sold in violation of the laws of Iowa, can be recovered back at the suit of the party or parties paying it. If the trust deserts the dealers and repudiates its contracts, the dealers of the state may assemble the amounts paid by them for goods since the pass •geof the cigarette law and bring a suit against the trust for the recovery of the entire sum. Post Election Musings, I do wonder if they are going to give our distinguished hero, Yviliiam Jenn ings Bryan, a little rest finally, since the people have spoken, and the popular will is now known, but no matter if frivolous people do laugh at his defeat and wonder at his audacity aud stick-tO'itiveness about the candi dacy for president. They forget per hspi that the great Btitesmin, James G. Blaine, was three times balloted for as presidential candidate. They have •lso forgotten about Aaron Burr ol' loag ago, who came ne trer to the Presi dency without reaching it. than any other man save Tilden, who in 1870, ac cepted tha loss of tho presidency With perfect couiprjs ire. If ho had personal disappointments or nourished presentment, no one knew It, and he spent his l«t yeira in peace and seren ity surrounded by books, and by men of the highest cultivation in his beauti ful little home which he bought on tliu Hudson dividing (lis time between that •nd his city home inGramercy park, aud I noticed from a news paper not long since that whoever joins the list of feated presidents is in distinguished company, for some of America's great est names are on the list, names that will live long after the men who were successful over them have been forgott en, such names as Henry Clay, Stephen A. Douglas, Horatio Seymore, Horace Greeley and othars who have left a more lasting Impress on their country's polities and- history than some men who have been presidents. Th'S Is a pitt/ government, aid ft least two partieB are essential to our public welfare, and of course one must rnle and the other oppose that rule, but In these degenerate days one would think to bear the peoplejtuik that it wai sin to oppose the G. O. P. But Bryan has proved himself a giant among men •nd todiy he is as noble in defeat as he could bare been In victory, as during the campaign he has waged a warfare •gainst corporate greed that can but redound to the good of the nation for although he has not yet slain the mon mnm who were candidates for the presidency have faded from popular tradition. It all seems to me to be a one sided affair when it ought to be remembered that opposition is afield for achieve ment and in it Gladstone and other dis tinguished men have won their laurels. In my opinion Bryan's policy is right, and if I were a man I should support him in sunshine and in storm because he represents the best aspirants of this great nation and because I would have a perfect right to support him as we are an independent people, and every one of us have aright to our own opin ion, but alas for the women in this sec tion but I am as free as 3ny of them and 1 verily believe that Democracy is imperishable though I will have to ac cept the situation and declare my loy alty to President-elect McKinley and and haii him as president of the United States, the highest offce of the land. in no free country, because it uprootB and eliminates the bBsis of all republican Institutions, that governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed.

The Thanksgiving bail at Pythian Castle was ^attended by about fifty couples, the Entre Nous club member ship being increased for this holiday dance by the addition of a number of our college students who were home for the weeks vacation. The music for the occasion was very good considering the late date it was arranged for which gave the players no time in which to prepare, and left them much at a disadvantage. The floor was like glass and its very smoothness added (,'reatly to the pleasure of tho dancers, the big lodge room and the dining room both being ulalized for the tripping of the light fantastic. A supper was served at midnight at the Lawler Res taurant ou Frauklin street after which for the nonce dancing was resumed until about half past one. A vote was taken by the male portion of the Entre Nous, and from this time henceforth daucing will commence promptly at eight and end at twelve o'clock, a very commendable resolution indeed.

Shipping Bototdtn the First Thing. Fryc expects to get up the shipping subsidy bill tomorrow, and if not on that day then on Wednesday, and in doing this to have the Spooner Philip pine bill displaced. This will be the be ginning of the important work of the session, and upon the success or fail ure of the scheme may depend much of the future course of proceedings for the entire session. In order to ac complish this result It will be neces sary first to get the consent of the Re publican committee ou order of busi ness, and to this end a meeting of that committee will be held after the ad journment of the senate this afternoon. Will Drop Regular Cmtoni, l'erhipfc There Is some talk of an effort dur ing the week to get up the Hay Pauncefote treaty in executive session, but there is as yet no definite pro gramme to this end. A movement is on foot now to secure the assent of the committee on foreign relations to the abandoment of the Davis amendment, for the fortification of the proposed, canal. The usual custom of adjourn ing over from Thursday until the fol lowing Monday during the first weeks of the session probably will be de parted from this sesBlon. That is the desire of the Republican leaders now here, and they say there probably wilt be no such adjournment this week.

The next Annual Farmers Institute of Delaware County will be held at Kailville on December 11 and 12 The following is the SPEAKER HENDERSON. ers of the house are preparing to press: with great vigor the important busi ness of the short session. Already con siderable preliminary committee work: has been done on the important meas ures—the bill for the reduction of the war revenue taxes, the army reorgan ization bill, the river aud harbor bill and several of the appropriation bills— and the legislative mill will start un der a full head of steam. The army reorganization bill Is considered to be particularly urgent, owing to the possi bility of Its leetlng strenuous opposi tion after it reaches the senate, and it Is the Intention of the leaders to get It ont of the way at the earliest posslbzle moment. The Democrats will caucus on the army bill today, and the Indications now are that they will offer aB a sub stitute for the permanent reorganiza tion measure a bill extending tor two or three years the present law for a provisional army. The bill to reduce the war revenue taxes has been prac tically completed by the Republican members of the ways nnd means com mittee, and it will be submitted to the full committee tomorrow, unless in the meantime a caucus of tbe Re publicans should be found to be ad visable. •ionic of the Republican mem bers are not satisfied with the list of articles relieved of taxation by tbe bill, nnd if too much opposition becomes evi dent the leaders probably will call a conference or caucus for the purpose of adjusting and harmonizing differ ences. On Thursday the Grout oleomargar ine bill will come up as a special or der under a rule made at tbe last ses sion.

IHVITEDTOSTAY HWAY Kruger Civen Notice That His Presence in Cermany Is Not Wanted HIS J0UBNEY A TBIUMPH AL T0UB. fighting in South Africa Ends as Usual—Boers Get Away—Cape Dutch Sentiment. Berlin, Dec. 3. Kruger has aban doned his proposed visit to Berlin, owing to the receipt of an official In timation that Emperor William re grets that in consequence of previous arrangements be will be unable to re ceive him. The Boer statesman will therefore proceed direct from Cologne for Holland. He telegraphed to this effect Saturday afternoon. The emper or's Intimation was conveyed to Mr. Kruger by the German envoy at Lux embourg, who arrived at Cologne yes terday. The Cologne Gazette, in an inspired communique, says: "Mr. Kruger's visit Is no1! agree able to Germany, his aim be ing to obtain intervention in South Africa.' It would be a grave political mistake—it would be even a great crime—to allow him to entertain even a spark of hope that Germany will render him any practical support." This declaration is accompanied with reproaches, Kruger being charged with having "encouraged a useless guerilla warfare and disregarded Gemany's ad vice when he might have still followed It." The press generally strikes the same note. And the Hoert Got Away. Bloemfonteln, Dec. 3.—Further de tails have been received regarding the tight near Rletfonteln between the British under General Paget and the Boers under Commandants Viljoen and Erasmus, Nov. 28 and 29. Gen eral Paget, toward evening on the sec ond day, closed. In upon the Boer po sition with the Intention of attacking next day at dawn. The Boers, how ever, with reinforcements, Including three guns, made a desperate attack and severe fighting ensued. The Bores, who were repulsed with heavy loss, withdrew In a northeasterly direction. General Paget having occupied their position sent mounted infantry in pursuit. The New Zealanders dis played great gallantry, losing five out of six officers wounded. Some Cap. Dutch Sentiment. Cape Town, Dec. 3.—Replying at Stellenborch, Cape, Colony, to an ad dress presented to him by the leaders of tbe Afrlkanderbund, J. X. Merrl man, former treasurer of Oape Colony, In the course of an impassioned speech, denounced the war In South Africa as "one of tbe blackest spots in British annals." The present methods of British warfare, he said, were such as encouraged the worst elements on both sides, and were bound to prove fatal to the ultimate peace of the country. I. W. Sauel- made a speech which was rather more militant: demanded the removal of Sir Alfred Milner, whom he described ns "violently anti-Dutch," aud declared that if Great Britain de prived the two republics of their in dependence she would lose the affec tion of nil Sontli Africans.

Dec. 3.—Thousands of peo ple waited yesterday in the vicinity of the Cathedral hotel to catch a glimpse of Kruger, who, when replying to a de putation of Bonn students In the aft ernoon, described the educational pro gress of the Transvaal, thanked the students for their kind welcome, and shook hands with each. Afterward he appeared upon the balcony, where he was loudly cheered from below. Hav ing rested for half an hour he went Into the vestibule of the hotel, "which was crowded with visitors. Here, re plying to a deputation from the Pan German league wishing him success, he referred to the close relationship be tween the Boers and the Germans. He will remain here probably until Wednesday. He left Paris Saturdny at 1:40 p. m„ and his Journey through, northern France was attended by scenes similar to those witnessed at Marseilles and Paris. At nearly every station crowds had gathered which waved hats and handkerchiefs and cheered the train as it whirled along. At Charlerol, the first stop on Belgian territory, rigor ous police measures had been taken to prevent the Invasion of the station, but the people were stronger-than the po lice and rushed on the platform and' gave vent to their feelings in cries favorable to the Boers. This was the cause also at Mnmur, Liege and when he arrived here, where the welcome was entirely unofficial. MANY REBELS 8PRRENDBR Two Thousand Two Hundretl Filipinos Take the Oath of AU«|flanoe, Manila, Dec. 3.—Sunday In Vlgan was a great day for the American cause. Twenty-two hundred natives of the region, nearly all fighting reb els, crowded the church and took the oath of allegiance to the United States. The oath was administered by tbe priest. All but 500 of those sworn were bolomen. Tbe number included the 1,200 bolomen who had previously surrendered. The proceedings In the church oc cupied the eutlre day, and included an address by General Young and an ex hortation by the priest. Scarcely any rebels remain in the vicinity of Santa Maria. General Young attributes this fact to three causes—the re-election of President McKinley, the arrival of a stronger boi'y of troops, and the es pecially rigid enforcement of war measures, and the deportation of pris oners to Manila. He reports that It is necessary to occupy ail the barriers in order to protect tbe natives from the vangeance of Tagalog raiders.

The United States auxiliary cruiser Yosem lte, which was anchored adjacent to the collier Justin, dragged her anchor and was driven aground a hundred and fifty yards from the reef, her bows being crushed in. A launch with a crew of five men had previously left the ship to en deavor to lind a safe anchorage for the vessel, the indications being that the anchors would not hold where she was. The men were not seen after they left the ship and It is practically certain that the heavy sea which the storm kicked up swamped the launch. The bodies of Coxswain F. Swnnson and Seaman George Anliel were re covered after the typhoon subsided. 1 The storm veered around after the Yosemite grounded, and she was driven off and carried to the Somaye cliffs, where her rudder and pro peller were broken. After the violence of the storm had subsided efforts were made to start the engines. They were finally got to work, and the Yosemite, with her damaged propeller, struggled landward at the rate of two knots an hour. The water kept gaining in the hold and the ship was gradually sinking. At 1:30 p. m., Nov. 15, the Justin, which had started in search of the Yosemite, picked her up and attempted to tow. her back to Guam. Two hawsers were broken, and it was then decided that it was impos sible to take her into port. The cruiser was then scuttled, after which she was abandoned, all hands going aboard the Justin. The Yosemite sank bow first at 3 o'clock, and the Justin stood away for Guam. Paymaster Ballard saved $68,000 Mexican money from the sinking ship. OSCAR WILDE IS DEAD.

San Francisco, Dec. 8.—Develop ments which have followed the trag edy attending the intercollegiate foot ball game In this city have not tend ed to ameliorate the horror occasioned by tbe collapse of tbe roof of the San Francisco and Pacific glass works. At present the net result is eighteen dead and eighty Injured. Many of the lat ter will either die from the effects of their hurts or be crippled and scarred as long as they live. It was one of the most distressing catastrophes in local history and its horrible record is not yet fully appre ciated. Bach additional detail serves to augment the horror. The unfortu nates who went down to death or less serious damage were assembled upon a ventilator that formed the ridge of the roof when the Crash occurred. For ty feet below them were ovens in which glass was baking and upon the tops of these white-hot furnaces many of the unfortunates fell. Those who were able to crawl or to roll off did so, but those who were stunned or crippled by the fall lay there and were literally roasted. Tarla Commlaalonera Dined.
