It was not told' whether the new yacht would be owned by an Individual or a syndicate, but an announcement Indicat ing, the. steps taken In the proper defense of the old trophy will probably be made at the regular meeting of the club to be held on the evening of Thursday, October 25. This will be welcome news, not only to the yachtsmen, but to the public gener ally. , Leading members ot/the yachting community have hoped for the announce ment ever since it was known that Sir Thomas Llpton had determined to send his second challenge; They were sure it would be difficult to defeat the Columbia if she had again to defend . the' cup, but felt it would be taking chances and that the prize should not thus be endangered It will now be left with the Herreshoffs to produce aboat that is faster than the Columbia.

' The reason given for Mr. Kruger's hurried embarkation on the, steamer Gelderland is that he feared the Boers here would attack him. The feeling of the refugees against Mr. Kruger for flee ing from the country is very strong. He left the Governor's house in a hired carriage, accompa nied by Dr. Haimann, the Governor following in a private carriage.

OOM PAUL KRUGER, THE FLEEING PRESIDENT OF THE SOUTH AFRICAN REPUBLIC, NOW ON BOARD A DUTCH, CRUISER AT LOURENZO MARQUES. (From his very • latest photo published in Array and Xavy.) ground. 4. My speech delivered at St. Louis the lath of Sfotember on the trust question. These documents have already been widely published in the press of the country and the members of your party are fully informed in recarrt to my views on the questions covered. In 1SS6 the money question was the question of paramount importance, but the Republican party.: by its disregard of the principles of our republic and by its advocacy of policies repug nant to the doctrines of self-government, has left us no choice but to summoo all lovers of the Declaration of Independence to the defense of that sacred document and the constitution framed in accordance with it. Xn your letter you quote several appropriate extracts from Lincoln's speeches. I find In a tpeech by Lincoln in 1S53 a defense of the Declaration of Independence, accompanied by a fervent and patriotic appear to his country men not to abandon the principles therein enunciated. It is so applicable to the present time and so in harmony with the references you have made to Lincoln's words that I quote the . followlns extract: "Now, my countrymen, if you have been taught doctrines conflicting with the great landmarks of the Declaration of Independence, if you have listened to suggestions which would take away from its grandeur and mutilate the fair sym metry of its proportions, if you have been In clined to believe that all men are net created e«ual in those inalienable rights enumerated by onr chart of liberty, let me entreat you to come back. Return to the fountain whose waters spring close by the blood of the revolu tion. Think nothing of me; take no thought for the political fate of any man whomsoever, but come back to the truths that are in the Declaration of Independence. You may do any thinc with me you choose If you will but heed these sacred principles. You may not only de feat m« for the Senate, but you may take me and put me to death. While pretending no in difference to earthly honors, I do claim to be actuated in this contest by something htgher than an anxiety for office. I charge you to drop every paltry and insignificant thought for any man's success. It is nothing; I am noth ing: Judge Douglass is nothing. But do not destroy that Immortal emblem of humanity- the Declaration of American Independence. How harsh th» contrast between the lofty sentiments "expressed by Lincoln and the sor did mercenary appeal now made to the people by 'the Republican party. How great the chasm between the statesmanship which would sacrifice life itself in defense of that immortal document which has been the model of repub lics ever since it was promulgated and the commercialism which woold sacrifice everr noble and holy purpose in pursuit of new mar kets and would indorse the doctrine that trade can be purchased with human blood— a doc trine advanced by those who want to give syn dicates a chance to exploit distant colonies. In response to the hope which you express, permit me to assure you that my political obli gations are due entirely to the plain people, who ask no special privileges at the hands of the government, but demand only equality of rlchts and opportunity to enjoy life liberty and the pursuit of happiness under the flag of a republic. These people, the nation s wealth Drodueers In time of peace and the nation s warriors in time of war. have already done more for me than I can i ever repay. Whether I am elected or not, it shall be my ambition to Drotect their rights and advance their interest* by every means within my power. Very truly yours, r# J* BRTAJJ. BUFFALO, N.

Mr. Croker Is trying to help Mr. Bryan to na tional euceeys, which would mean the deepest Ftain ur>on our financial honor at home, the deepest stain on the honor of our flag abroad. In return he is trying to help Mr. Croker to brir.«r down the Ptate of New York to the level of the coarse and vicious evil to which Xew York City has already been reduced.

Gualacot and Hydrastin have teen recogmlzed aa standard remedies for, catarrhal troubles, but they have always been given separate- ly and only very recently «n Ingenious chemist succeeded In combining them, to- gether with other antiseptics. Into a pleas- ant, effective tablet. Druggists sell the remedy under tha name of Stuart's Catarrh Tablets and it has met -with remarkable success In th© cure of nasal catarrh, bronchial and throat catarrh and In- catarrh of tho stomach. Mr F. N. Benton, whose address Is cars of Clark House, Troy, N. Y.. says: When I run up against anything that Is good I Ilka to tell people of It. 1 have be«>n troubled with catarrh more or less for some time. Last winter more than ever. Tried several so-called. cures, but did not get any benent from them. About six weeks ago I bought a 50-cent box of Stuart's Catarrh Tablets and I am glad to say that they have done wonders for me and I do not hesitate to . let' all my friends know that Stuart's Catarrh Tab- lets are the right thing. • -—¦¦ Mr. Geo. J. Casanova of Hotel Griffon, West Ninth street. New York City, writes: I have commenced using Stuart's Catarrh Tablets and already they havo given me better results than any catarrh cure I have ever tried. A leading physician of Pittsburgr advises the use of Stuart's Catarrh Tablets la preference to any other treatment for catarrh of the head, throat or stomach. He claims they are far superior to In- halers, salves, lotions or powder, and ara much more convenient and pleasant to take and are so harmless that little chil- : dren take them with benefit, as they con- tain no opiate, cocaine or any polaonaua drug. All druggists sell Stuart's Catarrh Tab- lets at 50 cents for full-sized package, and they are probably the safest and most re- liable euro for any form of catarrh. idly Coming to the Front.
