The chapter on Spain begins wiih the

settled satisfactorily by the payment Qf

vigorous demand upon the Spanish gov

act of the Conde Venadito in firing upon
the American steamship for an expres
sion of regret and the issuance of orders
to Spanish naval commanders to refrain
from interference with legitimate Ameri
can commerce whether within three
miles of the Cuban coast or not
The conclusion this incident is for
the first time told officially in this publi
cation The Spanish government showed
to do everything that international law
requires to smooth away the bad im
pression made by the incident and after
procuring a report on the subject from
the Cuban officials the Duke of Tetuan
Spanish minister of foreign affairs de
livered to United States Minister Taylor
a statement in which he says that the
Allianca was fired upon with a special
purpose not to hit her she being out
side of the jurisdictiqnal zone of Spain
This was an involuntary error which no
one could lament more than the govern
ment of his majesty whose purpose never
was to set obstacles or hindrances to the
Ii legitimate commerce of the United States
and much less to give the slightest of
fense to

sent to the commanders of the ships of

dukes communication as sufficient satis
factory explanation without con
ceding that the exact location of the Al

be considered as a controlling circum
stance Correspondence passing between I
the state department and the resident

with the cases of the yachts Amadalia <

proceedings Half a dozen letters tell the

to prevent United States Consul General
Williams from exercising diplomatic

vigor in this action addressing himself
to Minister De Lome here and to the
Spanish government at Madrid at the
same time through Minister Taylor and
in less than a month Consul General Wil
liams was recognized as having full pow

placed on an equality with the German
consuls In Cuba
A short letter from United States Min

victory that from its business value de

There is a postmaster in a little I
town not far distant who is noted for I
the amount of authority he Is inclined
to show in trivial matters A short
time ayo says the Mount Morris Mich

place appeared befoe the stamp win

onecent stamps for which he laid
down an equal number of pennies
Here was a good chance for the au

of teaching his importance he picked
pennies from the heap handed out
25 stamps and shoved the rest of the

remark that pennies were not fegal

25 cents
Expostulation was in vain the post

that seemed to settle it With a ma I

He Very Much Resembles iv Bird of
To see a rooster that resembles a
bird of paradise Is a rare sight but I
such a one has recently been a com
mon spectacle in Japan says the New
York World
This particular fowlfwas apart from
his gorgeous appendahge of the ordi
nary type found in Japan except that
he was a little more proud in his bear
ing than his fellows
It may have been his manner that
first led to his selection as the bearer
of a most magnificent tail The brief
history that can be obtained of this
freak rooster is silent on that point It
probab1y waS selected because only an
arr gantordy manner could suppqrt
such a wonderful ana < varigated ap
Be that as lc may the rooster did
certainly have a tail sixteen feet long
In it were all the bright colors imag
inable The tail was far mor bril
liant in its colorings than the shining
featherfan of a peacock
The neighbors of the Jap displayed
no interest in the freak bird but were
amusedly those who expressed admir
ation and wonder who were invari
ably foreign travelers
Then it was discovered that the
beautiful long tall was hot a freak of
nature but the clever work of the in
genious Jap who had fashioned and
fastened the tail in such a ways as to
defy detection except after the most
minute scrutiny

Hipparchia and Thais fair of face
But neither the fairer where are
And Echo that unbeholden fay

Whose beauty was more than man may
But where are the snows that were white

And where is that learned Heloise
For whose sake Abellard laid aside
Manhood for priesthood at his ease
Such hurt of love at his heart did bide
And where is the queen who bade should
Afloat on the Seine from her palace stair

War between the Ogden a Chicago I
suburb Gas company and the established
lished gas trust has broken out in earn
Two weeks ago the new company
which was believed to have been form
ed for the sole purpose of selling out
to the trust began laying its mains I
The pipes were not yet in the ground
when the trust sent out a host of can I
vassers with offers of unprecedented
liberality Into the North Side district
where the Ogden Gas company has be
I gun operations
The Chicago Gas Light and Coke
company of the I orth and South sides
the Suburban Gas company of Lake
view and the Peoples Gas Light com
pany combined in an offer to make i
connections from the street mains into
the houses and to gas stoves free of I
charge They have also withdrawn the
charges for meters and the customary
demand of a deposit amounting to
one months gas bill Furthermore
they are offering to sell gas stoves at
a discount of 40 per cent and 50 per
cent to people using their gas It is
expected that a sweeping reduction in
the price of gas will follow
All these liberal terms are in direct
line of competition with the Ogden
company The latter concern circu
lated blanks stating that all necessary
pipes would be run from the gas main
to the curb line This offer was amply
met by the trusts agreement to extend
pipes Into the building and to make
free connection with gas stoves The
average cost of laying pipe has been
30c per foot while the gas stove con
iiGction consumed am additional 4
In turn this offer of the trust was
promptly met by the Ogden people for
they also promised to exact no deposit
or charges or me er service The
trusts price on gas is now 1 and 150
per 1000 cubic feet as against 90c
demanded by the new company It is
rumored however that the Suburban
Gas company and the Chicago Gas
Light and Coke company are about to
reduce their charges to SOc or at

If so then the people will demanda
financial policy based upon the Amer
dna interest for the caring for An r

consent of any other nation on earth
Applause It this nation is not great
enough to attend to its own business
then to what nation can we go with
the expectation of aid Do you know
of any nation that sets up the plea
that it cannot take care of its own
people Is it left for the United States
to humbly bow before the foreign na
tions and beg them to do that for
which this nation was instituted to
take care of the people of the United
States Applause But I did not in
tend to make a speech I uimply want
ed to thank you and to come out
here and express my gratitude to you
and to those like vou who have con
ferred upon me this distinguished hon
or I appreciate the honor and appre
ciate the responsibility which that hon
or imposes Whether I shall be elected
or not depends not upon me but upon
the people
But here the time was up for the
train to leave and Mr Bryan was
hustled off through the crowd which
was loth to give way to him Hun
dreds of people
as he came through the assembled
crowd and promised him their support
A short stop was made at Toona
where half the town was out bent on
seeing Mr Bryan The people were
gratified though the stop was Only
momentary i 14 I
Then came Tuscola the ounty seat
of Douglas county At least 2000 peo
ple stood on the platformand around
the depot Colonel William Brinyton
United States district marshal for the
southern district of Illinois was there
and introduced Mr Bryan and his wife
to the crowd As the people ceased to
cheer Mrs Bryan who carried a large
boquet of sweet peas began to scat
ter them over the heads of the throrig
There was a scramble from all direc
tions and everybody wanted to get a
At Arcola Mrs Bryalb received the
bulk of attention
Whenever I come to Arcola said
Mr Bryan I travel an my wifes rep
utation because she attended school
with the daughter of your distinguished
citizen Maldon Jones
At Mattoon the crowd was almost as
large as that which assembled at
Champaign The streets were blo ked
with vehicles and men and women
and all the buildings in the vicinity
were decorated with flags in honor of
the passing through of Mr Bryan He
was introduced to the crowd from the
rear platform of the train by Frank
Spitler as the next president of the
United States In addressing the as
semblage Mr Bryan said
We have hardly had time fellow
citizens to discuss the questions which
are the issue in this great campaign
I have been taught that a public ser
vant was but a hired man who was
chosen for a certain time todo a cer
tain work and that those who select
him are the only ones to judge whether
or not he is competent for the place
You cant always tell whether a man
will make a good man or not by the
I way he looks but
adopted at Chicago and I believe that
any person who will honestly faith
fully and courageously carry out the
provisions of that platform will make
a good hired man for the people of the
United States Applause TJhis is a
campaign in which there will be much
of feeling more feeling than has ever
been in any campaign in which you or
I < have been engaged since the war
The feeling rises on two sides You
find those who believe the financial
policy which we advocate will be ruin
ous to this country and those who be
lieve that the only salvation to this
country lies in the immediate restora
tion of free and unlimited coinage of
gold and silver at the present ratio of
16 to 1 without the consent of any
other plause nation on earth Great ap I
I believe in that platform I ex
presses that policy which is necessary
to restore parity between money and
property And in this campaign you
will find that those men who are pe I
cuniarily benefitted in the rise in the
value of a dollar will favor that policy I
that will raise the value of that dollar
will not be in favor of such a policy
When these people tell you that they
want good money you tell them that
money may be too good it may be so
good that you may pray for it and
wish for it but you cant get hold of it
Applause We want a dollar that will
be just and not a dollar which will
only reward the men who own money I
As the train proceeded south there
were small bodies of citizens at im
portant stations who had assembled to
see the train drawing the presidential
nominee go through on the fly The
enthusiastic citizens at these places
were gratified in their desire for Mr

onto the rear platform where Mr Bry

assembled people as the train rushed
At Effingham although it was quite
dark there were at least 10000 people
many of whom were woman assembled
to see the Democratic presidential can

still there were loud cries for Bryan
Free Silver and Altgald1 and af
ter the mention of each the crowd
gave vent to cheers When quiet was
at length restored Mr Bryan was in
troduced from the rear platform of the
train and said

At Effingham Mr Bryan and his
wife were met by Hons L S Dwight

boarded the train and accompanied
them to the end of their journey South
of Effingham about four miles a large
number of farmers assembled along the
edge of the railroad track and had

by there was a fusilade of shot guns

shouted Hurrah for free silver and
Mr Bryan was taken to the Virginia

There was no ostentation or display
made by W J Bryan the Democratic
presidential nominee on his trip today
from Chicago to Salem the town of his
nativity He bought tickets for himself
and wife at tie Illinois Central depot and
there was no special car provided The
I man upon whom te Democratic party
thrust the greatest honor within its power
rode in a Pullman coach on a regular
train and every passenger on board the
train had access to the car and nearly
every one of them came back and shook
hands with Mr Bryan and his wife and
expressed to then their good wishes and
congratulations There was no demon
stration at the Park Row depot when Mr
Bryan and his wife left Chicago Mr and
Mrs Bryan rede to the depot in a cab a
few minutes before the time for the train
to depart A few people recognized Mr
Bryan and exercised the privilege of all
American citizens toward candidates for
public offices by shaking his hand
Alarming EJTeet of Overstnily Upon
an American Girl
The daughter of a friend of ours the
president of a college took part in
this commenpement season in an era
tqrical contest of the Ladies Literary
Union for a prize on which six of the
brightest and most popular students
had set their hearts She competed
last year for the prize and secured
second place Her theme was A
Noble Unrest In the middle of the
oration she stopped She had forgotten
A hush fell on the excited audience
A physician present took out his watch
and watched her stand like a statue
for full three minutEs till with a
burning face she turned to leave the
stage roeledi and fell A powerful
student of the other sex caught her in
his arms and bore her off the stage
to the door In the hush that followed
she partially revived from the
partaly rvived swoon
and raising herself on the big seniors
shoulders as he carried her to the door
she struggled to finish her oration
speaking slowly in an unnatural voice
with closed eyes Meanwhile the ex
citement was so great that several
other girls half fainted and one was
carried senseless out of doors
The next speaker overwhelmed the
general tendency to hysterics by deliv
ering a fine oration When the last
of the speeches had been spoken and
the judges were about to retire up the
aisle walked the presidents daughter
supported by her mother She took
her place on the stage began the ora
tion where she had left off and finish
ed in fine style She walked calmly off
but instantly fell into another swoon
from the effect of the strain and had
to be carried out
The judges of course awarded her
the prize but it is a matter of doubt
if they did widely in s doing I she
had died or lost her reason the second
time both of which she must have
risked i the account as communicated
to us be true dreadful responsibility
would have been incurred by all con
cerned It is vquite probable that the
effects of that strain will be the seeds
of an awful harvest The collapse re

Sequel to an Experience of n Strug
gling Young Author
You remember my telling you
awhile ago when we were talking
about the vicissitudes of life said a
struggling young author according to
the New York Sun about an experi

of manuscripts you remember which
I desired to sell and which I sent out
to the publications I thought them best
suited for One after another they came
back until they had all come back but
one That one in my own judgment
was much the best of the lot and I had
built strong hopes upon it and when
so to speak i still didnt come back I
felt sure that it had been accepted But
after waiting awhile longer and not
Hearing from i I wrote asking about I
it and the publisher wrote me a polite
note saying they had no record of i
it had never been received
I That was the story as I told it to
you and I supposed that that v the
end of it But now let me tell you the
Of course I wrote a polite note In
reply to the publisher and in that note
I described the manuscript and said
that perhaps it might yet be found
and later i was found and by snakes
they returned it
I That was solemn but it was one of
I those things that are so everlastingly
j goshblastedly solemn that you have to
I j laugh over em and there cant be
I I anything very terrible in anything that
you can laugh over so you see come
I to take i altogether that experience
was not very distressing after all

Thee will I not betray by speech or
In silence meek Ill learn thy mystery
