Subscrip tions should be sent to the publication office by mail or telephone. Good morning! This is about the right sort ot weather for defective flues to get in their accustomed work. The best wish for the Princeton and Yale football players, who are on edge for their great encounter to-morrow, is that they will make as fair and manly a fight as was waged through to an even finish in Cambridge last Saturday. Secretary Bliss reports a probable increase in the cost of pen sions for next year of $5,000,000 to $7,000,000, though the cost this year is above $140,000,000. Nearly a third of a century after the close of the war he finds 200,000 pension claims awaiting action — a number greater than the largest army actually put into battle during the war. So much |for reckless, demagogic legislation, seeking votes with the most demoralizing of bribes—a pension bait. It is a question in the minds of those most seriously interested ; whether or not the passage at this time of the anti-silver resolution such as that of the Delaware Bankers' Association is in any way useful. The free coinage issue is not dead and perhaps is not dy ing, but to fight it when it is not making any particular stir, is merely to revive what many hope will be a dead political question before the next campaign. Those who arc opposed to the free coin age of silver may, therefore, do well to consider the advantage raising the question themselves, when no one else is raising it. JlTST a week ago the United States Court of Appeals at St. Louis held that a boycott by labor against capital is a criminal conspiracy. Now an Illinois State Court at Chicago has decided that a "black listing" by capital against labor is equally unlawful, and has awarded a "blacklisted" laborer $21,666.33 damages. If the boy cott were sound in law, then the blacklist would also be sound, But these courts, dealing out even justice, have declared the truth that blacklist and boycott are equally odious, equally hostile to democratic institutions and ideas. It is fortunate that these two decisions came so closely together. The object-lesson they present will not be lost upon either.labor or capital. It is announced that the President does not expect to incorpo rate in his message the recent correspondence with Spain. The papers are to be accessible to the Foreign Committees of Congress, but not to the people. Why not ? cealment. It is reported that Spain asked to have the correspond ence withheld for the present for political reasons. This is not enough. The citizens of the United States have a right to know what their servants at Washington are doing, ger that the performance of the Administration is not in line with the sentiment of the people. Hello, there, John Sherman ! Here is a chance for you to take a hold stand. Such a proceeding might be of use to you. There lias been too much con There is great dan It is to he hoped that the reports are untrue that Brazil is will ing to sell some of her warships to Spain, provided she can obtain security that payment will be forthcoming when it falls due. Un der ordinary circumstances nojobjectioujcould he raised with justice 11 a transaction of this character between the two nations. 11 would he a mere matter of business. But the situation is not an ordinary cue; on the contrary, the conditions arc such that the pro po->L*d barter on the part of Brazil would not, to say the least, be calculated to exalt her standing as a member of the American fam ily of States. What Brazilian could see without blushing his flag give place to the standard of Spain on the ships of his country, and look without indigiiatipn at their gnus pointed against the heroic n 1 tn i * patriots of Cuba struggling to throw off the rule of the Spanish monarchy? What amount of money could compensate for so imlcl-. ihle a stain on the honor and character of his nationality? may have no use for these ships; she may need the money invested • ,1 t . i i i r i r i rr if f in them; but it would be far better for her to suffer the loss, what ever it may he, than to indemnify herself at so great a sacrifice of honor and principle as the suggested sale would inevitably carry witli it. Brazil The Patliians whom the British encounter in the war now in pro gress on the northwestern frontier of India are always worsted in , . • tlie encounters that take place during the day, hut they get their innings at night, making rushes in force upon the British camps under cover of darkness, or creeping"up singly close On a recent occasion enough to get good shots with their excellent rifles. they poured some io,ooo shots, it was estimated, into a camp from the adjacent hills, killing a number of men and animals. The Britisli device for revealing the presence of the enemy is to build bonfires some distance off from their camps at night, or burn flashlights not unlike the so-called "Roman candles - " When the enemy's po it is revealed sition is at a distance of one or two thousand yards by means of "star shells," or rockets, which illuminate a wide area for a few seconds. The latter method is sometimes employed if a rush is expected, even when the enemy is supposed to be compara tively near. When the Patliians—a general name Orakzais and other tribes of the Maidan region—are once located by means of the bonfire, flashlight or star shell, the Maxims do the rest General Lockart's army, it may be added, reached Tirah, its object ive point, by November 5, and the hostile tribes began to submit. Many of the Orakzais and some of the Afridis, though unable to fight a pitched battle, keep up a guerrilla warfare, attacking con voys, cutting off foraging parties and firing into the British camps or the Afri-lis, at night. They have long-range rifles and are good shots. The proportion of officers picked off has been very large. local dots. - Ix'on ConirelI, of The Philadelphia Record spent the day in the city.
