' Tun Cuban cause la in tlio ascodden :y and a littlo help from Congress Jts'all that is needed to bring a destructive and bloody war to an end and bring independence to a people who have been struggling for generations. . McKinley's appointment of Joseph Smith to be State Librarian was re ferred to committee by tho State Sen ate Monday nncf is thought by many to "be thereby shelved. Smith's popu larity has not been of the most eNten f,ire quality. L The bill of Mr. Avery, introduced in the Senate Monday to raise tho age of consent in Ohio from 14 to 18 years, should receive the full support of every self-respecting member of both houses. It is a delicate subject, but one upon which the great body of Buckeye citi zens aro almost unanimously agreed. When the Cuban insurgents capture Havana, which event is likely to occur at any hour, the Spanish government instead of tho rebels will be praying to tho United States for the rights of belligerents. The Spanish army will then be nothing more than a horde of invaders, shipped from monarchical Knrope for the sole purpose of tyrran izing an enlightened people fully able to take care of themselves. The charge that tho State Senate's refusal to confirm Gov. McKinley's ap pointment of Librarian Joseph Smith wns a slap at Ohio's candidate for Pres ident appears to emanate in eyery instance from absurdly suspicious and unwise supporters of tho Goyernor. Dozens of McKinley's appointments were confirmed Monday without hesi tation and tho folly of the charge is at once apparent. The whole great state of Ohio is unalterably and irrevocably for McKinley for President, and in the final show down it may be predicted that many men and newspapers now sneered at by certain organs as 'Tor akerites" will be found doing more sin cere and effective work to that end than some of the aforesaid certain organs themselves. More Revelry. This time Q. M., J. W. Danley is the victim. Sat Jan. 4th, lb'JO, being his birthday, at about 7:!30 p. m. liuell Post and Corps took up their march from Post room on Putnam street to the camp and headquarters of the Q. M. and commissary, the latter being presided over by his most estimable wife, the past president of the corps during the last tno years. And in order to stand in with the Q. M. who (of course) issues the rations, we took with us a beautiful upholstered rocker and foot rest, and after getting him anchored in it with his feet whooped up on the foot-rest, you should have seen tho modest smile of complacency which overshadowed his entire coun tenance. And shortly all went merry as a mar riage bell. The speaking became gen eral. When suddenly (as if by impulse) our Q. j;. retired to his olllce and be gan a wholly reckless issue of rations, not of beans and hard-tack, but of tea, and coffee (with cream and sugar), pumpkin pie, boiled ham, and all that goes to make up a first class home ration. And you should have seen comrades, Newton, Grafton, Guyer and Joe Young, eat, yes and our O. D. Gold smith, all of whom would have no doubt been there yet, (but their wives took them homo.)

Sidney Itlilswny ami C. II. Dynr Try Tliolr lliimlii n Cripple Crock. Intelligence is received from Cripple Creek, Colorado, of tho lucky invest ment in mining stocks in that plac'o of Sidney ltidgway and C. II. Dyer, form erly of this city. A few weeks ngo Mr. ltidgway purchased 20 shares and Mr. Dyar 30 shares of stock in a cer tain mine, for which they paid $33.83 per share. Twenty-four hours after the purchase the Btock went skyward and $1,000 per share was openly offered for it Mr. Dyar sold ton shares at that price, retaining 20 shares. Mr. Kidgway refused to sell any portion of hife investment, as developments at tho mine indicated that it was one of tho richest, in thejeountry. T A 01-p6nnd lump was taken out' and stolen by tho miners, but was afteV-' ward recovered and found to assdj $12 to the pound. Such a strike as made by Messrs. Rldgway and Dyar sounds almost in crediblo to Ohio ears, but is not an in frequent occurrence in the Cripplo Creek region. The friends of the gentlemen in this city nie gratified to learn of their good fortune. AMONG THE DERRICKS.

The v ord "beust ly" may coiney a ieebleideaof the Mew York winter, but autumn is glorious. The Indian summer in this part of the United States may be snid to open for business in September, and it keeps it up bomutlmcs until late in December. Some jcais ago the Indian summer lasted until January, and it could be gathered in the open air on Christmas day. In Xew York "Xo ember is nu.ui tumual month. The air is springlike and balmy, but, occasionally, the weather, to use one of Opie Read's aph orisms, is "as cold as a dog's nose Janu ary." Not ember is n lo cly month, and, In the l.inguage of n well-known poet, whose name 1 cannot recall: "Slstlc November! O. brief Intermezzo, Set the year's glory and dying between; Leading us Into, by rich modulations, SUeneo and sleep and Dectmbtr'a pale sheen." Tliis, too, is the season when the jan itor starts a file in the heater in the cellar "to take the chill off," and be foic it is fairly going a muggy simoon of parboiled heat comes down, and drhes you to tho ice chest und profun lly for something cool. This, too, is the season when hats are showing which way the wind is blowing. It is the time for pumpkin and mince. In regard to tho latter, I must utter n note of wnining. If a man has had iS'ew York mince pie for supper, and simultaneously, as it were, had his ears fiozcn befoie breakfast, ho will not bo done wiestling with the pic until long alter the fiost bites hate thawed into oblivion. Oat here In the east, autumn is the gicnt season for enjoyment. Some of thu season's blessings aie thus poetical ly described: "The pumpkin pie la yellow, Tho buckwheat cake Is brown, The fatmer's giay nck whlsl era Arc full of thistle down. '1 he rabbit Is cavorting Along the gloomy slope; '1 he shotgun of tho sportsman KHmlnuU's his Ioe. Ulng nl! lor merry autumn, Blng ho! for autumn gay. Whose pretty pot-pie squirrels Among tho branches play." This, too, is the season when the sen timental editor, or editress, seizes the facile pen by the neck, and dashcb off, Blowly and painfully, something like this: "Once more the seasons hae re volved and naturo Is stripped of her SOME PUMl'KINB ON TUB SIDEWALK. beauties. Tho wind is harsher, it has denuded the forebts ofitheir summer gl6ries, strewing 'the ground with the cubt-off rags of 'terdiire-. The dahlia alone holds out the paitlng splendor of the summer with an intense fire of its own, as though the sunlight had blos somed into color. The gay season has passed, nutumn is leading us to winter na life wanes and tho sombcred counte nance of man foreshadows death." Leases have their time to fall. That's wheie leaes differ from the price of gas. Speaking of lcaes, reminds ine that this is likewise the seiibon when if j ou search the Scriptures, you will find autumn lea es. Some of the insects, thu flics, for instance, lmo not gone into winter quarters, but "Miss Katy Did In green attlro Sings nightly In her tree: It won't be long before Jack Frost Will have a mash on me.' " Autumn is glorious enough every where. Even awny down in Texas, where winter is mostly in tho nature of a joke, autumn has peculiar charms. in u fir! vato and confidential le'.tcr from the editor of the Pearsall Sun he writes: "The summer's sultry heat is now at tempered, and the glories of our autumnal spring radiant on nature's fair face, dispel our woes. Our turnip seeds hao sprouted and our mouths arc watering for the toothsome greens, that, 'b'lled' with bacon, nro good enough for kings and queens." But In my autumnal enthusiasm 1 am drifting away from New York. Thero aie about nutumn in New York certain discrepancies, among them tno Invasion of the city by tho grand nrniy of Independent cross-load tourists. Already, wherever you wander in Now York, your attention is called to the outstretched, w Ithercd hnnd of poverty, thnt generally needs washing. Once more quoting the poet: "l'"rom thq lonely rural hlphwn a.,.y i , To the city s crowded bywaj s Theyi are .coming, ns the autumi days und chilly, plghtsbvKln; from the cou'ntry's vfchlant Valleys lo tho Wty's reeling alleys , Now thu vast Falistulllaii cavalcado of tiamps are coming In." Another disagreeable feature of au tumn in New Yoik is'the political devas tation that occurs at this season. There seems to be e cry year an election of some kind or other in early Novem ber. Every night at that time you hour the riim-te-tis-tum of thu dium that heads the political pioccssion, nud tho hnmtment i lit up. It is not "thu light ning's red ghue painting hell on thu sky," but the rockets and Koiuun can dles provided by the saloon keeper, la the immediate proImity to whose cafe, for soinu mysterious reason, the meet ings are held. The candidates have to hold these meetings in order not to he outdone by each other. The outdoor meetings hnve ccitaluly little or no ef fect in conv Hieing thu small audiences that seem to listen. Thu day lor ointoiy as an effective campaign weap on has gonu. Nowadays people tend and lc.ison. Or.itoiy is the blusteiin:r, spoilt child of a semi-barbarous age. Tho piess is the foe to ihetoric, und Ike art of declamation has been sinking in value from the moment speakers weiu foolish enough to publish, and the renti ers, w ise enough, to read. During thu campaign which has just closed 1 had an excellent oppoitunity to listen to the oratory of some gie.it political speakers, ass the stand was di lectly under my window, and I have come to the conclusion that there is no renaissance of Webster and Clay just am: caut-tail campaign. yet in my ward. It was actually painful to listen to a prominent city official. lie reniaiked.makingagesture as if he weie pulling In a clothesline: "My friends ur I w isli to say a few vvouls ur on this gteat and momen tous occasion ur." And hu kept on "urring," slowly and pniiifully, for three-quarters of an hour. However, wu should lcmcmbcr that, after all, to "urr" is human. I went down and mirglcd in the surg ing crowds of ten or fifteen people that .e.ie gatheiud together in gioups. I i.skcd the most intelligent-looking man I savv, what was the reason for the small attendance if a collection was to bo taken up? His leply was: "It's no use trying to get people to listen to political speeches. They would rather lead them In the papers next morning." "But it seems to me that there should be a vast sea of up-turned faces in this vicinity when iou havu such a spell binder," I replied, referring to thu silver-tongued orator, who was still "urr ing" on the stand. "Yes, he Is a Demosthenes and Ciceio if ever theie was one, but the fact is, I don't believe if the Archangel Gabriel weie announced to deliver an open-air political 8M!ceh In New York, that he could get an audience." This nutumn hns been n cry dull one, politically speaking. Tho only marked enthusiasm displayed was across the Harlem river, where, at a public meeting, an orator who was pleading for reform, was struck on the tire of his car with an aromatic testi monial in the shape of a spoiled egg. Although the word ovation seems to bo derived from the Latin "ova," I can hard ly supposu that the enthusiasts who pelt an orator with eggs of a previous year, can propeily be snid to give him an ovntion. Huwever, If there is tiuth in the maxim that to the victor belongs the spoils, that reform orator should have been elected. Ai.kx 12. Sweet.
