IS PI HUSHED WKKl'.I.Y H JOHN' H. QRABILI-, ve^ar8 WOOL>STCKK, TlMUUA, FRIDAY. MARCH. 17th. 189o. HON. JAS. HAY. Hon. James Hay, for the short time he has been iu Congress, has readied a very prominent position and is now very favorably spoken of at the leader ofthe democrats in the House. He ha- proved himself a faithful ?nid efficient representative. While we do not sgree with him in his financial views, be agrees with his party. Hi-ability is recognised by all parties, and his district lias reason to be proud of him, as its reivrcStn t? the. COUNTY POLITICS. Tt> givt our readers a correct idea ol the pr?sent condition of local jiol? ?tws in this county, it steady necee s.iry to say that politics is much mix el. The democrats are apparently harmonious. The warring factions hitve united and will held but one c invention. If the work of the con? vention should prove to be harmon? ious and none of the old sores be dis? turbed, there is, as affairs now stand, a prospect ot success. The republicans, on the other hand appear to be di\ i.le.i into two faction?, though many ofthe party still expect to see the factions united and a solid line of battle formed. "Whether their hopes will be fully realised, we sis not able to say. but the candidate a bo depends upon republican factional differences is generally left without his host. If the republicans in this county have a reputation for any one thing it is their cohesiveiiest oil ela? tion duy. The fight may be renew? ed the day after one election ami j continue to the day before tlie next. But there h some lalisinanic power that glue? thetn together, so long as an election is in progress. If, however, such sl,o ild not be the case this year, much depends up on the strength of the faction-, h may be that one of the factions ? able to draw a nutnler of democrats, who prate about their democracyI from the beginning to the end ofthe year, but ?re Always ready to serve in I some petty office as a denn eral and vote the republican ticket for a small consideration, and thus make UP the lossta c/republican*, who will bolt onj account of factional differences. Much however will depend upon* the per-1 tonal qualification and popularity ot I candidates, as many of our pe. pie are independent and will not permit par ,y bossts to dictate to tin m in coun? ty elections. In spite of the work ol the convention- and committees, it will be, to ro small ex'.cut a personal contest and the popu'nr men will draw votes from both parties. Tux ni Mr.Kii of deaths of Americans by the Spanish war is now 5,781. and ti e end it not yet. * ? Fi.e in the strawbonrd mill of Evi? ter i Son, at Hallicnwi, W, Va., did 15,000 damage. ??I AB* STILL trading off the lives of American soldiers for those of yilipinos. It is true they give us at least three for one, U we can believe the reports of correspondents, but ?till the American people will yet learn that such trades do not pay. Local politicians are vet y tree in the uee ot the expression "the tail can't wag tlie dog," but ibe tsct neverthe? less1, still continues to ?tare them in the face, and thai 'act is that the dem? ocratic party must come Lack to th? lime honored principle! w hieb ti e til? ed the platform of the National Dem ocrstie party in 1*90, or suffer de? feat It may be a bitter pill, but they must swallow it.' 18 to 1 can? not wia, Brysuism ?ill not save the psrty. Why not stand shoulder to shoulder u^n the broad platform ofi Jeffcrsonian Democracy? It is the I only course which promisee success.] It nisy require a few more disasters,] but the day will come when tlie dem? ocracy ofi hit country will again le true to itself. Il - B necessity, mt merely for the SWcceteof Ihe party, but for the nttservation of civil lil erty and the general prosperity of the people. OVER 400 DROWNED. Brisbare, Queensland, March 18 ?

Then all the infantry r< giments, form ed in three lines, left their tronche? and moved on the Filipinos, The r?gnai ity of the advance was clock-like. The cavalry met a heavy fire on the right. The men dismount? ed and drove the Filipinos ont ol their interenohments. In the distance could he heard the firing of General Ovenebine's brigade, which had made n feint OU 'he Amer? ican right.
