It looks as though Hanna's ship- subsidy bill might be defeated in the Senate. Very few people now upon this earth will be living at the dawn of the next century. A bill has been introduced in the U. S. senate by Senator Allen of Neb., providing for a bounty on farm produce exported, as follows Wheat and rye ioc; flour 50c per bbl; corn 5 c per bu.; corn meal 7c per 100 lbs.; cotton ic per lb.; to bacco 2 c per lb. The bill provides an additional bounty of 10 per cent on any of these products exported in vessels of American register. A curfew law is being enacted by many cities and towns which requires all children under the age of 14 or 16 years to be off the street and at home after a given hour in the even ing, generally 9 o'clock. This is a wise act and could be enforced with profit by every municipality in the country. Young children can learn nothing good by being on the street alone or with others usually found there late in the ' evening and the chances are that they will learn much which is sinful, so they are better off at home. The board of inquiry investigat sng the hazing at the West Point military academy which is alleged to have caused the death of Cadet Oscar L. Booz, of Penn., finds plenty of evidence that hazing is carried on there- as much as ever. Putting tabasco sauce in the mouths of cadets, bracing and other forms of hazing are commonly practiced. That hazing is not confined to any one school is evidenced by the re cent treatment of Frank Lust, a student of the Northwestern Uni versity, who was stripped, his body covered with ink and soft soap and otherwise treated in such a brutal manner that he fainted while being taken home. Mrs. Nation, or Medicine Lodge, Kas., President of the W. C. T. U. of that place, went to a saloon at Wichita and demolished about J 2, 000 worth of mirrors and other fixtures. She was arrested and sent to jail where she remained, refusing to be released on bond. She sent for Sunday-school Stanley, who is at present Governor of Kansas, and she was refused, later the chief ex ecutive claimed to be sick. The lady, no doubt, had read his recent temperance interview and supposed she could depend on him, but the governor is one of those fellows who talk temperance, but when it comes to a "show down" he's not there. The war in South Africa is being continued as vigorously as ever. The Boers, who have no towns to defend, confine their operations to skirmisheing and attacking British forces not easily or quickly reached with re-enforcements. Some of the recent battles have been as large and disastrous to the British as those during the earlier period of the war which Lord Roberts has pronounced as being over. In one engagement nearly 500 . British troops were killed or taken prison ers. The Boers do not care to bother with their prisoners nor feed them, so they are returned after tak ing away their arms and ammuni tion. Gen. De Wet, who has been trapped several times, has succeeded . in eluding capture even when seem ingly surrounded by a superior force. His efforts are strikingly in line with the remarkable escapes of Gen. Washington during the Revo lutionery war. Lord Kitchener has asked that all available mounted in fantry be dispatched at once to South Africa. The war already cost England 520,000,000, 47,000 men and 500,000 horses and mules.
