'Advertising rates made known on
'e are authorized to announce
m eandlilnte for Magistrate in the Second
(fUtrict, subject to the notion of the
Tnri Supreme Court of the United
States has decided by a vote of five
to four that "The Constitution is
applicable to the Territories acquired
by purchase or conquest only
when , and so far as congress shall
.direct." If this be true, Congress
isgrcatcr than the power which
brought ft into existence. If it be
true in this case, why not in all?
and, what assurance have we that
our constitution will not virtually
be, in a short time, a thing of the
past. This decision is far reach-'
iag, so far that we will not probably,
realize its full extent, for sometime
to come. We laugh at Eng
land's unwritten constitution, from
which her Parliament dare not
flake a law that would be inconsistent
there with, when we look
upon our own constitution made
by men who were second intellectually,
morally, and religiously to
no King, priuce, or potentate in
America to day, as a mere temporary
affair made for our goverment
while it was a Republic, aud not
for the present day system of despotism
aud monarchy. It is inconsistent
with our form ot government
for the United States to
possess territory the citizens of
which have not the same rights
under the constitution as citizens
of any other portion of the country,-A
ten year old boy of average
sense, can readily see that Congress
has no more right to levy UX on
goods shipped from Porto Rico to
New York than 011 goods shipped
from Sanfraucisco to New York.
Had it not been for the sugar trust
uo such state of affairs would exist.
But it would injure the
poor, little, puuy, weakly, hall-starved
sugar trust for Porto
Rican sugar to be sold in the
States at the price they would sell
Jt, and iu order to compensate
this great trust for its prorata of
campaign boodle to buy euough of
those, who opposed McKinley, over
to elect him a duty was imposed
upon the goods shipped from Porto
Rico to any other part cf U . S. which
caused acres aud acres of sugar
bane to lay in the field uud rot
whtle her people were dying of
starvation. Aud this has all occurred
under the reign of Wm.
whose sir name is McKinley, and
in the fourth year of his reign.
Is this Republicanism as promulgated
by Lincoln, oris it despotism
such as our fore fathers fought to
overcome iu 1776?
Unitkd Status Sknator Tillman,
of South Carolina, deserves
a great deal of praise from the
people of that State for getting
McLaurin to resign as Senator.
He saved those people from having
to cudurc what Kcutucky had to
cudurc by the imposition of one
Senator Liudsay, who we thank
pur stars, is a thing of the past
'1erc. McLaurin offered to resign
if Tillman would, aud Tillmau
called his bluff, aud as a result they
arc private citizcus. Although
Tillman had nearly a fnll term to
McLaurin not two years, yet Tillman
resigned to get rid of McLaurin.
It is a great sacrifice to
get.rid of a traitor, but Mr. Tillman
will undoubtedly lose nothing

Druggist A. W. Sawtelle. of Hartford,
Conn. "A lady customer,
seeing the remedy exposed for sale
on my shoy case, said to me: 'I
really believe that medicine saved
my life the past summer while at
the shore,' and she became so enthusiastic
over its merits that I at
once made up my mind to
it in the future. Recently a
geutlcman came into my store so
overcome with colic pains that he
sank at ouce to the floor. -I gave
him a dose of this remedy Which
helped him. I repeated the dose
