What One Man Saw in a Day Showing
Hearst's Disreputable Methods.
A Plymouth gentleman who was in
Chicajro last week for the first time in
three years received an impressive les
son in the up-to-date methods of
boosting the circulation of Hearst's
American. The gentleman referred
to walked five squares on Adams
street during the busy r.oon hour and
heard twenty or thirty newsboy's cry
ing that progressive (?) sheet with
lung-tearing voices and every one of
them called "Full account of the hor
rible accident! Many lives lost in a
street car collision on Milwaukee
avenue!" At 6 o'clock the same gen
tleman was on Dearborn street in the
down-town district and the newsboys
were selling the American with cries
of "All about the Czolgosz suicide in
After the theatre in the
our Plymouth man's cars
were assailed with the shouts of
dozens of urchins peddling the same
sheet and the inducement to buy was
"Hammond all burned up! The
whole town on fire!' '
It turned out that the street car
collision resulted only in the fracture
of three left legs, the Hammond fire
involved one plant alone and the
suicide had no foundation in fact
whatever.. The newsboys are in
structed at the office of the paper as
to the calls they are to use in selling
on the streets. Deceit, distortion
and exaggeration are the grounds of
Hearst's apparent success in forcing
his wares upon the public, but such
success can never be more than tem
Rochester RepuWIcan.
The great majority of men are what
is commonly called poor men. and the
question naturally arises why the poor
are in the majority. The answer is
that the average citizen is not built
on the plan to acquire an independent
competence, that is to say has not ac
cumulated enough to care for himself
and family on a rainy day, to provide
for sickness and death without owing
any one a dollar or depending upon
friends to help out in time of need.
It is safe to say that nine-tenths of
the young men in Rochester are living
at the top of the heap. That is they
are expending every dollar they can
possibly command for clothing, for
society, for a good time, fcr cigars,
and possibly for saloon patronage, and
many are not satisfied with absorbing
all their, earnings but are determined
to keep up with the procession if
many articles are purchased on credit
and never paid for. And you would
be surprised to look over the books of
clothiers and behold the names of
persons w ho kindly received credit and
then abused the confidence imposed.
Such fellows are recorded as "dead
beats" and all dealers are shy of them.
The only possible way for a poor
boy to rise above the ranks of poverty
is to avoid the "swim" and resolve to
lay by a certain anvwnt of money
each week if it is necessarv to make a
srcritiee to do sa.
One of the wealthiest men in Roch
ester accomplished his purpose, not so
much by earning big wages or specula
tion but by laying up every dollar that
could possibly be spared from a com
fortable living, when the accumulated
dollars were put out to earn other
dollars. In this way his wealth was
acquired by economy, not by any
special exertion or speculation, and it
came easy, and what one man has done
can be done b others.
It looks bad for a young man to go
about the streets smoking cigars and
having an all around good time and
depending upon his parents or friends
for the bread he eats and a comfort
able home that he never assisted in
providing. The young man who eats
the bread he did not earn is that
much of a pauper and the only differ
ence betwera himself and a tramp is
that he does not subsist upon hand
outs because he is permitted to sit at
a .veil filled table. ,
Young man, if you want to avoid
bing a dependent, a borrower,' a rent
er, one who Jives from hand to mouth,
bagging assistance in times of afflic
tion, buying on credit when you are
unable to earn wages, commence now
to cultivate a principle of economy
that will make you independent in all
things, because with "money y-u :an
purchase all the needs of mortals -im.
Therefore the difference between
dependence and independence '.U not
luck or speculation it is on.'y econ
omy a principle that any person can
practice. -
Rochester's New Sewer.
Rochester has awarded a contract
for the construction of a sanitary
E3wer to fost $19,498.50. It will
extend through the town on JIain
street, withsereral laterals, and will
terminate In a disposal plant. The
total length will be 12,021 feet.

An Apparent Wholesale Murder Mystery
is Developed at Peru.
"What was probably a wholesale
murder has been unearthed by Will
iam Downing a farmer, who lives on
the south bank of the Wabash river,
four and a quarter miles west of Peru.
Mr. Downing, while digging in a
spring at his home to make room for
a barrel, removed the skeletons of six
persons, four adults and two children,
evidentlv the remains f what was
once a whole familv.
One of the skulls had a hole in it
as if it had been made bv a blow from
a club. Some of the ribs showed signs
of having received blows also. These
conditions and the fact that the
bodies were buried standing erect and
so closely together indicate that the
familv had been foullv dealt with.
l.ut who the people were or who
committed the deed is as much of a
mystery as when the bodies were put
R. I. Leese, who has lived in the
vicinity for tiftv-six vcars and now
lives next door neighbor to Mr. Down
ing, says that he never heard of the
Indians burving their dead in the
manner in which these bodies were
found He is of the opinion that the
skeletons arc the remains of a white
family murdered and buried in the
early days of last century, but who
they were or how the bodies got there,
e savs he has no idea.
Travels of the Man From TtirXeyville,

Kewanna's Town Council Does Things
Worthy of Praise.
Kewanna is growing and improving
under the genial warmth of a railroad
boom and among other things she has
bettered her streets and abolished
hitching posts in the business district.
The Herald is greatly elated by these
evidences of progress and eulogizes
the town board in the following lan
guage: These permanent improvements have
been agitated for years but never un
til the present . time have we had a
town council with sufficient backbone
to tackle the proposition. A town
council which allows itself to be bull
dozed, browbeaten and dictated to is
not a town council. It is an aggre
gation of salary drawing automatons.
Thank fortune, the present council
A. E. Hudkins, C. McMillon and L.
O. Leasure is made up of gentlemen
who have ideas and convictions other
than secondhand and who hesitate at
no action which is unquestionably for
he public good. These gentlemen
tarn their salaries sixteen times a
year and draw them but once. They
are elected to serve the public and are
doing that duty well and good. The
Herald bows in respectful admiration
to a council which has builded for it
self a monument. !
A Neighborly Thrust
A Plymouth man was in the city

a restaurant here but the rent charged
for the only store room in town rather

Startling Conspiracies are on Foot
in the Islands.
Many Native Civil Officials Implicated In
the attempted Insurrection against
. American Aultiritu and Numerous
A rests Already Made-
ManilTa, Oct. 2G. Numerous
suspected municipal officials liave
been arrested in Samar. Evi
dence shows that there have
been startling conspiraces on
foot. The sources of the chief
supplies for the rebels have been
blockaded, and the inhabitants
are now required to concentrate
in towns. People outside these
camps will be regarded as ene
mies of the Americans.
Intense feeling exists among
the troops in Samar. If they
can meet the enemy in the open
there will be great retaliation.
Many of them have seen and the
others have heard of the bar
barous treatment to which the
dead American soldiers were
subjected by the Filipinos re
Francisco do Jesus, Luk ban's
chief commissary, was recently
captured and taken to Cebu.
Papers which he had in his pos
session have resulted in the ar
rest of many of the best-known
presidents and other civil offi
cials of the island of Levte.
It developesthat Bili ran island,
north of the island of Leyte, has
been a hotbed of insurrection.
Every civil official there has been
aiding the insurgents ot Samar
in every way. They have landed
several cargoes of rice and have
received hemp in exchange.
Several thousand dollars also
fell into the hands of the Ameri
cans when De Jesus was made
prisoner. His capture is thought
to be a great disaster to the
revolutionary cause.

Battle .For Cuban Independence
Waoed In Free Trade Lines For
stiadowed bu Leading
Washington, Oct. 25. Free
trade "with Cuba and annexation
will be the cry of the democrats
in the next congress. This was
the word which has be n brought
to Washington in the past two
days by a prominent democratic
senator. The decision to urge
such an insular policy at the
next session has been reached
by an understanding between a
number of democratic senators
within the last two weeks. They
have taken, upon themselves the
task of making the policy known
to members of their party in the
house, and urging agitation and
a fight along that line.
The movement in this direction
is independent of Senator Jones,
and indicates a determination to
throw off his leadership in the
senate, just as was done repeat
edly during the last session of
congress. Although not definite
ly decided upon by a democratic
caucus, the suggestion that this
decision as to party line of action
without consultation or the ad
vice of Senator Jones wns revol
utionary, and was made by a
democratic senator now m Wash-
igton with a shrug of his
shoulder and the laughing re
joinder, "We democrats are all
The democrats will declare in
their speeches on the floor of the
senate and house that they are
simply making the old free trade
fight their party has been en
gaged in ever since there was
such an issue to hang on to.
They hope to have a sentimental
side to add to their arguments.
They will picture a condition of
diie distress on the part of the
Cubans. They will declare, to
the galleries that the United
States has taken from the Cu
bans the support which they had
in their relations with Spain, and
disregard their former cry of
Spanish oppression. They will
urge that absolute free .trade
with the island is a duty to the
Cubans which the United States
should meet. They hope to pre
sent a united front in favor of
such a policy, and there are indi
cations that they will be as near
united as they have ever been
recently on any proposition.
In urging immediate annexa
tion they hope to have a popular
cry for the next congressional
elections and one which will ap
peal directly to all classes, bar
ring those perhaps of the At
lantic coast, where the high pro
tectionists fear the annexation
of Cuba will bo a break in the
protective tariff system, which
has done so much for the country.
The democrats will declare
that they are not urging a new
issue. Thev will declare that
democrats from the southern
states fathered a movement for
the annexation of Cuba many
years ago. They hope to place
the republicans in congress in
an awkward position by referring
to their pledge to give Cuba an
independent and free govern
ment, altnough it is well known
the Teller resolution was passed
as a concession to the democrats
in congress who howled against
any settlement wnicn aia not
provide an independent govern
ment for the islands.
There are but few republican
leaders in Washington at this
time. Those who are hero say
the party will not fear to meet
the opposition on 'the issue if
raised. There are strong indica
tions that as the time for the es
tablishment of an independent
rH'ornmrnit..iii C!nhn. draws tip.v
the better class of Cubans are
fearful of the experiment; This
has caused a notable and definite
growth of the annexation senti
ment in the island This has
been recognized in the changed
attitude of the radical leaders
who fought the Piatt amendment
in the constitutional convention,
and who proposed to doubt ths
sincerity of the motives of the
United States toward the Cubans.
It has been noticed in the change
of tone of the leading and more
influential papers of the island.
If the annexation sentiment in
the island itself grows so that a
request shall come from a re
spectable majority of the islands
themselves, the paity will be in
a position to grant the prayers
of such majority.
Bravery of an Express Messenger
in a Hold-up.
Southern Pacific Train Attacked hy
Robbers Who are roiled by a Guard
He Hurled Lighted Dynamite out
of His Car and Used His Gun.
Portland, Ore , Oct. 24.
The north-bound overland ex
press train on the Southern Pa
cific was held up by two masked
men fifteen miles south of Eu
gene at 3 o'clock yesterday morn
ing. The robbers blew open the
express car with dynamite, but
secured little booty, having been
driven off by the express mess
enger. The -only things they carried
away were the contents of one
registered mail pouch. Two
men boarded the train at Cottage
Grove, and a short distance this
side, near Saginaw, they climbed
over the tender, put off the fire
man and his helper, uncoupled the
express car, and made the en
gineer drive ahead a short dis
tance. When the train halted
their first act was to blow open
the door of the express car,
which they did "with dynamite.

pelled the engineer to throw into
the car a stick of dynamite, with
a lighted fuse. The messenger
; grabbed it and threw the blazine:
thing back at them. It exploded
outside the car.
The men next attempted to en
ter the car by compelling the en
gineer, who was in the hands of
the robbers, to crawl in through
the door, the robbers hoping to
gain admittance by using him as
a protector. But Charles used
his shotgun to good advantage
and kept up a hot fire directly
over the engineer's head, know
ing well the robbers would at
tempt to follow him into the car.
Finally the robbers turned
their attention to getting what
little they could from the mail
car. They obtained the regis
tered mail, and then one of them
took the engineer on board the
engine, which he commanded to
be cut loose from the train. It
ran to within half a mile of Eu
gene, where the robber left and
started toward the Willamette
river, in a northerly direction.
The passengers were not mo
