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
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,
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

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

I noticed from a news paper not long
since that whoever joins the list

company, for some of America's great

more lasting Impress on their country's

affair when it ought to be remembered

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

Entre Nous Thanksgiving Dance.
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
The general verdict of members and
quests at this pleasurable evening was

Washington, Dec. 8.—The senate
was called £o order at 12 m. today,
but It transacted little business, as the
announcement of the death during the
recess of Senators Davis and Gear,
after necessary business had been at

colleague, Senator Gear, and Senator
Nelcson did a similar service concern

of swearing In the new members, who
this year are Dolllver, who has been

doing this to have the Spooner Philip

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

Kruger Civen Notice That His
Presence in Cermany Is
Not Wanted
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.

Bloemfonteln, Dec. 3.—Further de
tails have been received regarding the

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.

In the course of an impassioned speech,
denounced the war In South Africa as
"one of tbe blackest spots in British

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,"

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

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.

Island with amazing rapidity. 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.

away, and it is estimated that hun
dreds of the native population in va
rious parts of the island met their
deaths. The cocoanut crops were
rendered absolutely worthless, and
the vegetation of the Island killed by
salt water. The storm came up in

Catastrophe at Paelflo Glau Work* Clalma
18 Dead and 8tf Injured.
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.
