subject daring the rece, will make a re

! 1SG7 Secrerary Seward negotiated a
treaty with Dpmnark for the cession of
the group, agreeing to aj $7,500,000:
bnt Vif cea-urc failed of ratification in
tbe SrRale. pml since that time we have
been placed in the peculiar attitude of
refuting t4. take over the territory our
e-lv,-js, and at the same time of refusing
to let any other nation buy it.
IVItlhJOt etopping to consider whether
oi not mk-Ii a dog-iii-rhc-manger policy I
consistent with the Monroe doetiine, it
Is reasonably certain that its prosecution
In future wuld lead us into serious com
plications. The principal island of the
troup. St. Thomas, is regarded by tile
liigbst aaval and diolomatic authorities
as the keystone ot tile arch of control in
the Caribbean Sea. Its importance, in
vivw of the ojiening of Uie IsUmuis to
Interooeanic tiaffic, becomes immense.
And Jn-t here 1b the difficulty of Denmark
Tint count' is too small and weak single
banded to carry and protect such a piece
of property. Therefore. Denmark would
like to realize on it, and turn it over to
some other country able to own it.
Here arrives another difficulty. Be
cause of the very contingency which gives
to St. TJiou.ns its political and strategic
Tataethe Etnpeior of Germany would like
to poe. the three islands; and more than
once it hss Len reported that he does not
regard with much favor our assumption
of a right of veto upon its transfer to .i
European power. There arc pregnant In
dications that Germany Is not inoliued
to an., excessive modesty ln its relations
with count lies of the Westenr.HeihUphor.
It uaR been .known for some time that
both the .Raiser and the Italian goveiu--n.ent
have been on bad "terms with the
Republic of Brazil, ln consequence of til
Jeged UMn-ntxnent of German and Italian
rodents In well informed circles In
Europe it Is suspected that a scneme for
a joint expedition against our South
American aHghbor Is well under way
between the courts of Berlin and Homo
Sin-c Brazil ie n-nl by civil discord,
ana In no condition to resist such a
fo:ce as two millUtry nations could throw
upon her, the development spoken of would
be a matter of serious concern to this
cou:iti- Germany might tuke and per
mancntly occupy a Brazilian province
or two by way 0r indemnity A .jltua
tlon then would arise very much like
that in Mexico, when European inte--fcrence
stabliShi-d an empire with an
Austrian prince on the throne.
From the point of view of our tradi
tional Anitiric-tn International policy, the
Br.:zl'i.iii matter would be bad enough: but
Jt would not he half as bad as to nee tn.j
German Empire established in a naval
strongrio'd In the Caribbean Sea; and we
areafiaid thatexactly Is what will happen
if we do not pni chase the Danish islands.
The Administration Is believed to lie op
posed to the acquisition. Perhaps, then,
Mr. MeJCiuley has something to piopose
us n alternative. If so, the country
would be very glad to hear from him.
Your Aunt Butinn.
How many limes in history has it hap
pened liat. tmall boys, with guilty knowl-e-lg'
or jam and cake, not to speak of
pumpkin pies and apples, have thought
to delude their maiden aunts and get
away with the plunder; and how fre
quently have these said maiden aunts
pic ven in be the chosen vessel, and they
have been left!
Religious thoughts like these hover over
us as we remark the peculiar conditions
in the Ohio Republican camp, disclosed
bj the latesr returns from that large but
somewhat decomposed borough.
There is a certain bitter irony a.out the
melhod of Aunt llanna which produce
the awful iniith so pointedly described In
the Scriptures. After the recent elections
the Republican bo'-s assumed all the airs
of a conquered victim. He heard talk of
a legislative bolt against him, and re
fued to put up a deficiency of $11-000
in the oxche(;tiet of the State committee
He also naltel until his family enemies,
Foraker, Bushnell, Kurtz, and the rest
had committed themselves irretrievably to
his defeat for the Senate. Then, and not
until then, he pulled the Joker out or his
sleeve, where it liad been carefully con
cealed for several weeks.
Then, and for the fiist tin.e, it Let am e
apparent that a number ofrollticalehame
lciiP, who had been elected on theaf-surnp-
tiou that they were good enough I)tmoeralv
as firas Banna watroncerned.are, in fact,
a pretty fair average of the breed of Ohio
Repubbcan sfatesnifu. At all event,
with their friendly aid there will be a
Uepiiblu'an"ma:orili in tie Irgifelature of
fifteen on a Joint ballot.
That setllsa it! We nevei have lost our
faith iu Aunt Hanna's barrel. U if. lite

He will come to the Senate as eaby as
winking, ai.d his coining will le acclaimed

illustratlpg 01 vital to their organiza
tion, including trusts, monopolies ind per
Miual boxslsia; by the Bernocrats becHUK; he
will appear in the American Bouse of Lords
in thelightof a horrible example.
As is not unusual with our mercurial
fi lend, Abdul Hamld, when he learned that
the Austrian ambassador would leave Con
stantinople today and that his port ami
town or Mersina w-ould be bombarded, he
grncefiilty faced about ud did whHtever
was required of him. That Is, so the dls
ratche siate. If he hab not nade a little
mentnl reservation or evasion in case he
can get help froa Germauy.wedo not know
our esteemed contemporary, the Comman
der of the Faithful.
It is with intense regret and fear that
we havegiveti space to a rejiort that the
Cuuddlrins went away yesterday, angry
and without inakinga "P. P. C." call at the
State Department. Perhaps as they de
parted "P. 1). Q." they thought that would
do as well. It docs not much matter.
They might asweil have remained at home.

The war In nnrtheru India continues with
out visible abatement. Although the news
from Sin.la due not bay eo, there is a suspi
cion that fee punitive forces are acting on
the defensive. Gen. Kempster's brigade

on Monday, and we fail to hear that the

it was a mouth ago.
Mr. Robert Todd Lincoln may not bever
comfortable, but there is one more man too

thlug. The marriage of a white man aud a
Choctaw girl in New York not long ago
was notable in that the bride could noi
speak Eusrhsh and the groom could not
speak Choctaw, so that the conveisation
had to be carried on in sign language

Application for n liccoiirtt of the Vote
on the Amendment Hefiited.
Trenton. X. J., Nov, 17,-The supreme
court todaj- refused the application for a
recount of the vote on tlie anti-gambling
amendment to the State constitution.
The npipiou was written by Justify Van
Sickcl, and was assented to by Justices
Dlx-n and Collins. The denial is placed m
the ground1: that the applicants have had
no personal rights Invaded; that tlie adop
tion or re joction of the amendment is aques
tion of public policy affecting only the
Governnieut, and as the legislature pre
scribed the manner of voting and can
vassing the vote, and the governor's procla
mation making the amendment a part
of the constitution, had been issued, in
accordance with the legislature's direc
tion, the matter was closed.

Mr. Nathanipl Jackson, formerly a resi
dent of this city, but now of Detroit, Mich ,
wif. royally entertained by Washington
Lodge of BUff at their clubroom, No. 1000

"MoSorley's Twins" troupe, now playing

Representative David Mercer, of the
Omaha district, has returned to Washing
ton in the hope of securing a little needed
rest before the .es-ion opens. Be found
it impossible to find rest In Nebraska. He
went rner early in the campaign for that

of the Republican State committee and was
forced to put on the harness and wear it
until the taco vo over. Be views the
rcf-iill in his own State with -atjciactiua
and biiya it wjs practically a victory
The Populist candidate for governor
In Nebiaska last year carried the State
by about 20,000, while Bryan reeoUed
a majority of 14,000. I believe we hid
the- fight won up to within two weeks of
tho election lids time, but then the Demo
crats nod Populist got frightened .it the
strength w wete mowing and called o.it
all their reserves. We weie criticised
for the decisions of the courts, wlih-h
we controlled, and which were onarged
with having stood in with corporal e in
tetests and all that sort of thing. Every
chaigo possible was made and eveiy
aai!abIe man was put into the field,
llv Bryau was hastily called back to the
State, e.nd made many speeches, while
the who'e party worked with a despera
tion born of despair.
"The result was that they elected their
candidate for supreme Judge by a little
more than 10,000 majority, which was
quite a decrease from the vote of tha ye tr
before. The fnlr test iu the State, How
ever, is the vote on regents, which was
earned by the f unionists by 7,500. Hav
ing elected one or the Judges, the oppt.si
tion can no longer blame us Tor the conduct
of the courts, and I believe we will be in
good snune to elect our candidates at the
next election. 1 have no fear but that
when it comes to the CongrnsMonal eleo
lion we vill nuld our own, while we may
make some, inroads ou the opposition.
When I look around and see the effect of
the off yeai elections as a whole I am
very well sath-fied with .what we .e
complished In Nebraska."
"I do not believe Congress will do any
thing on the currency miestion,' said
Congressman Bartiuan, of .Montana. ye
terday. "Of course," he Continued, "I
do not mean by that that the House will
not take some sort of uction, but it m-it-ters
little wha.t the Bouse may do. With
the Republican majority now there and
with a willing speaker any bill proposed
which has the sanction of the Speaker -md
which is controlled by the Vdiuinlstration
can te derricked through thn Houe in
short order. If I were to epitomize tho
becUsof the currency measure which will
pass the Bouse, 1 would divide Its purpose
nro three parts and designate them tl.tir,
1. A dffiauitiuti of the perpetual main
tenance of the gold standard- 2. The re
tirement of the grtenbacks and the treas
ury notes !bued under authority of the
Sherman act; a. The transfer to the na
tionnl bank of ill rights to issue papei
money, which eompletely transfers to
those same bank the control of the Jn
duslr!c8of IhcVnited State.'
Spent-ing oi i he recent interview of his
colleague. .Piintor Carter, Mr. Hartrean
said he did not look upon it as an ex
pression that would Justify the belief or
e. purpuP" on the parr of Sir- Carter or
those acting in concert with him to break
away from the Republican party or dN
aow theii allegiance to that party, what
ever stau.-' it mJuht take on the money
question. Mr. Hartman denied that in Ms
pro,oBit!ciu to retire all paper money un
del $10 and substitute therefor silver coin
Mr Carter represented the sentiments i f
tlie silver men or the sentiments of even
his ow ii constituents. "The proportion of
Senator Carter,'' said Mr. Hartman, ls
nothing but a compromise, and the friends
of silver have had enough of compromises.
Thpy will no longer submit to the compro
iiiise of the principle for which they on
tend and for which they made the fight
lust year.''
On this line of argument .Mr- Hartman is
explicit. Aim clear, and he probably repre
sents the ideus of nine-tenths of tlie silver
men of the United States. He character
izes the men who are proposing this thine
and that thing iu the hope that it will leal
to a larger live of silver or "do'" some
thing for it in mine way or the other, as
men who are seeking to hoodwink the pub
lie and befog the advocates of silver in
the hope that they maj- lead them frori
the great issue or last year.
The one significant expression in Mr
Carter's recent statement conveys nothing
of significance to Mr. Hartman. Senator
Carter intimated that if international bi
metalljsm failed there would be a realien
nient of parties. This was accepted as an
intimation that In such event Mr. Carter
would be iound on the side of thoije who
would be willing to leave the Republican
party as now constituted. Mr. Hartman
does not believe that this is the proper
ii.terpretatiou or Mr. Carter's ideas. That
statement of the Senator, he says, is but
the excuee of a man who is determined to
remain wi-ii the Republican party whatever
be its course, and whatever its future
IHdiey may prove to be.
Col. E. W. Ayres yesterday received :.
letter from Senator-elect .Money, of Mis
sissippi, who is now at CarroIIton, an
nouncing that he was fully restored t--
health and weighed 160 pounds. What is
t-e.st about the letter is the statement that
his eyesight has been fully restored and
that l.e will bo able to prosecute his studies
and readings without interruption. There
was .i Tear for some time as to whether
the Senator would tie able to use his eys
much, but this information seems to indi
cMe that that fear has been entirely re

John "Wanamaker, of Philadelphia, was
recently interviewed by a" reporter on a
subject of which l.e is well qualified to
speak. He was asked if it pays to ad
vertise when times are Jiard. "When the
times are hard and people are not buying,"
replied Mr. Wanakaker, "is the very time
that advertising should be the heaviest.
You -.vant to get the people in to see wJnt
you have to sell, and vou must advertise to
do that. When-the times are good, they
come of theii own accord. But I believe
In advertising ull the time. I have tried
all kinds of advertising, and have spent
u, great deal of money in posters and bills,
but I gave that up long ago and thinknevvs
paner advertising is by far the bsst." Mr.
Van;tmaker was asked if he could see
any imn.cdiate results from such adver
tising, and replied that he could, Instanc
ing the mornings when his store in New
York or Philadelphia ,has advertised a job
lot of bioyrles or other tilings. There is
invariably a long line of people waiting
outside for the doors to open. "Adver
tising is one of the elements of business
success," the great merchant declared,
"bub It is not the chief. The chief ele
ment is getting what the people want,

A New Bicycle.
IFr.im the San Francisco Call.)
A bicyclist who got tiled of mending
pimctiTos iu his tire thought It would be
an improvement if he could make the tire
solid and use the pneumatic principle on
the hub lie has now constructed a bi
cycle ou this principle and finds that it not
only does away with the possibility of
punctures, but that it takes up vibration
much wre than the ordinary pneumatic
wheel and greatly decreases th: shock when
an obstacle is ridden over. The pneumatic
tube in the hub is so well protected that
there ir absolutely no wear upon it; hence
it cannot; become out of order and will
last about three years. No plugs nor
repair kit. Is necisnary with this bicycle
For that reason Gen Miles of the United
States Army is said to have ordered ten
or the bicycles made with which to ex
