WILL BE A CANDIDATE FOR REELECTION?JOHN CHAPPELL ALSO A CANDIDATE. MR. SHAFFER GIVES A STATEMENT CONCERNING A BIG CUT IN WAGES. CLEVELAND. Ohio, April ill).? The wage committee of the Amalgal mated Association of Iron anil Steel workers is now in session in this city. Theodore J. Shaffer said to-day: "I shall be a candidate for re-election to the presidency by the convention. i hear there will be some opposition. John Chappell, of Washington, is a candidate. I know of no others." Cinncornine a statement that tin* 1-S per cent, reduction recently accepted toy the rollers at Pittsburg made a total reduction of fifty per cent, for the rollers while the cutters and roughens wages had not been reduced, Shaffer said: "I- know of 110 rollers who haveaccepted cuts aggregating fifty per cent." GIVING UP THE FIGHT CF 1904. (From the St. Louis Globe-E>emocra.t.) It is clear that not a single sane Democrat in the United States looks for a victory for his party in 1901 Ex-Boss Croker of Tammany undoubtedly voices the judgment of every other Democrat of sense in saying that the Democrats are not expecting victory this year, and that all they can do now is to work for 1903. Bryan sees the drift against his party very plainly, as is shown toy his assault on Parker and his platform, and on Hill and the rest of the persons who are responsible for the man and the outgiving. His Chicago speech of last Saturday night shows that he not onlydoes not expect victory for iiis side this year, but he does not desire it. There is not a Democratic leader any where in the country who has any hope of the result in 1904. The temper displayed by Williams of Mississippi, Cochran of New York, and other spokesmen of the Democracy in Congress displays an irritability and an anger at the anti-Democratic conditions which are significant. There is a chorus of exclamation from the Cleveland and Hill sections of the Democratic party that. "Bryan means to bolt." This is the explanation given by Bryan's Democratic enemies and his attack on the Cleveland aspirant for the nomination, it is a natural assumption, of course. Bryan went to Chicago in cold blood. He hired a hail with his own money; he introduced himself and ran the whole affair. A large number of invi- j tations were issued by him to edu- j cators, editors, business men and oilier conspicuous citizens of the city. He meant to give his meeting as much prominence as possible, and he succeeded. At the outset in his address he pointed out that the affair was tin- j usual, but he justified himself by the ] gravity of the situation for the Democratic party. He has a newspaper. I in which he could have printed this | attack on Parker, Hill, Cleveland and the things for which they stand, but he thought that by hiring a hall in a large city and delivering this indictment orally it would have more effect. Undoubtedly he was correct in xhis feeling. While an expression of this sort in the Commoner would be seen by only a few persons, and would attract very little attention, his demonstration in Chicago was published in all the daily papers of the country and was read by millions of people. Nevertheless the Republican party will not be lulled into any undue sense of security by the despondency of its enemies. The Bryan bolt, if it takes place, will not cause any relaxation ( on the part of the Republican managers to get out a heavy vote oil election day. They will act on the presumption throughout the canvass that the contest is going to be close, and 1 they will see to it that their side of the situation is presented to the voters of the country. An active canvass will be made by them. They have the issues and they will have the ticket which will appeal to the support of men of education and character, and j these will be utilized to the fullest j possible extent for the benefit of the i party. Whether the Democrats ex- j pect to win in 190S or not. they are | sure to be beaten badly in 1904. All j the indications are against them. Not the slightest apprehension as to the ' ; result is felt in business circles any- j where. If there were any symptoms ' ' of a Democratic victory, enterprise j would halt and a general cessation j of industry would take place. Xoth- : ing of this sort is visible. N'othing of ' the sort is expected b nynybody. Still j 1 the Republicans will act as if there ! were a chance that the Democrats ] would make a strong canvass. The Republican party will deal with the issues of 1904 in 1904, and will at- j tend to the situation of 1908 when that . comes to hand.

' - An Oriental Slierloclc Holmes, >| A book on India tells of a native defective whose methods were anything j but scrupulous. One important matter j investigated was a robbery of about j half a lakh of rupees' worth of silver | ingots (about $25,000) that was sent ; down on camels with an escort of iif- ! teen armed men from Indore to Kotah. j The escort was killed by Daeoits and j the silver taken. Isri Pershad, the ori- j ental Sherlock Holmes, rasseldar major of a native regiment, made it his busl- ' ness to bring these men to justice and when asked in after years how he obtained his proofs remarked, smilingly j stroking his beard, that if a man was j judiciously strung up, spread eagle wise, by his thumbs, much useful information might he extracted, and, j having no marks of ill treatment to show to the'sahibs, he generally held his tongue. Of a certain witness in this case he wrote that he had ''given awfully good evidence ax tue xrun. uul as there was 'just -i little discrepancy' between this and his previous deposi- j tions before the political agent. when ! the original files were called for by the higher court, 'It would be better to omit this one and say it bad been eaten by white ants.'" Oltl Lenther Ilottlcji, Leather bottles, or blackjacks, were j common in Europe two centuries ago. . The bottles were often made of one j skin doubled up arid closely stitched I together, leaving an aperture for tlie ' neck. The thick piece between was in- j sorted for the slip. It was meant to be j slung at tlie back, a leather thong pass ed through two loops placed on either ; side of the neck, arid it was sufficiently ! fiat at the base to stand when put ! down. The stopper was made of wood, j horn or old leather. A good deal of j care was required in the preparation j of the leather, which had to be oiled and worked with hammers to make it supple and then washed with a lye so that all the impurity was entirely removed. leaving the leather clean and i dry. No moisture or air had any effect j on it. Blackjacks were, in fact, flagons ] made in various sizes. They were j sometimes pitched inside. TIi?? >IoKlem Girl. When she is twelve or fourteen the Moslem girl comes to know she is beautiful, though she does not marry at the early age of the Hindoo girl. She counts the saris and Cholis and sighs for fringes of pearls and modern diamond earrings she sees the friends of her mother wear. In her rose colored veil and gold spots she is the prettiest picture you ever saw. With gazelle eyes and Asiatic grace she is full of ardor and naivete at the same time. She runs like a fawn at the approach of a stranger, but when unobserved her laughter rings through the house, and the instinctive coquetry of her smiles shows that the purdah is a necessity.? Everybody's Magazine. Follow! xiir In IIIh FootNteps. Visitors to China are particularly struck by the numbers of pairs of boots hung in separate -wooden cages in tlie archway of the main west gate of Ilsuanhua, the valedictory gifts of beneficent prefects. It is an attractive custom in China to invite a departing magistrate whose rule has been popular to leave a pair of old boots for suspension in a prominent place as a hint to his successor to follow in his footsteps. It is a considerable honor to be asked to leave these boots, and tlie ruled make the request all the more eagerly because they believe in the efficacy of the hint. "W'izit Wrinlcle.s Signify.
