DEROUEN. president mitchell's appeal. President Mitchell, the head of the striking miners, is following the coal operators doggedly, and issuing appeals to the American people based on the faets of the situation. He declares that the anthracite miners, numbering 147,500 men, are employed not over 200 days in any ono year and receive an aver age of $1.42 a day for ten hours' service. No man will say that this is too much for the decent support of a family, especially at this time when the cost of living has been advanced over 32 percent. The operators say that they can not afford to advauce wages with out taxing the public in the price of coal. Yet these men who are so anxious for the public weal have already raised the price of coal $1 a ton since the strike began with out giving any part of this increase to the mine workers. In thus making his appeal to the public President Michell knows where the winning is ultimately located. Should a universal strike of coal miners be the last resort on July 17, the people will not be un informed as to the points at issue.

PRESIDENT PALMA AND THE NEGRO President Palma of Cuba lias come out very plainly in dealing with the "race question," which seems to be in Cuba as well as with ourselves. Colored men must not look for political preferment at his hands until they demonstrate their capabilities. Under Spanish rule the education of the blacks was wholly neglected and the race in the islands today is overwhelmed in dense ignorance. President Palma is wise enough to see that no matter how altruistic or senti mental ho may be that his duty as president of the island compels him to adopt such measures as will redound to the best interests of the people. In this President Palma will arouse the anger of the long-range philanthropists of the East, who are strong on theory and short on political knowledge. They will quote the Declaration of Independ ence and remind him that all men are created free and equal. All to no purpose. President Palma knows what is best and wisest. That distinguished soldier of fortune, Ceu. Gomez, will not ob ject, in spite of the fact that the negroes are his chief supporters and followers. He is comfortably provided for and he cares little what becomes of the rest. When we reflect that the negroes of the island have been nominally free for many years and that they are not so very far below the whites in intelligence, President Palma's course will appear the more strange; but it will be en dorsed by all who have the knowl edge of conditions which will en able them to see things in their true light. And iu this light the monstrous folly the stupendous crime committed by the Republican party in enfranchising slaves who knew nothing of freedom, and in disfranchising their former mas ters, will appear in all the greater hideousness. Time is a great teacher as well as a great healer, and those who sought to submerge a superior race under an inferior race will discover their error whether they will be honest enough to admit it. or not. $100 Steward $100.

The Courier-Journal might say of Mr. Cleveland's tree trade ut terances generally, "The voice is .Jacob's voice, but the hands are the hands of Esau," because from first to last Mr. Cleveland used the tariff issue as a means of deceiving Democrats and riding into power. When he got there he either would not or else he did not know how. In either case we want no more. Assuredly he wrecked us; and. having wrecked us, why should we listen to him again? His very commonplaces grow ghastly in the light of the lost opportunities he made for us. Mr. Watterson did his best to warn his parly associates away from Mr. Clevelaud in lie sounds the same warning again because lie knows only too well what .Mr. Cleveland means, and what those immediately about him mean, when he puts himself to the trouble of making a public deliver ance and they put themselves to the expense of organizing a club. It means the very reverse of party unification. In due season the public will begin to feel the press ure. In due season the mugwump machinery will begin to move. In due season the poison will begin insidiously to percolate through the nether veins of the party cor porate. Mr. Watterson has but two ends in view, to scotch a movement wholly dangerous in character and to vindicate the truth of history. He has never had the slightest pri vate quarrel with Mr. Cleveland. His opposition to Mr. Cleveland rests upon the specific statemeuts lit; has made, that Mr. Cleveland is an ill-tempered, self-willed man, having neither the intellectual training nor the moral and politi cal inspiration for Democratic fel lowship, or leadership; that he knows little and cares less about tariff reform; that such sympa thies as I10 has are not on the side of the plain, common people, aud still less with the lowly and the poor, but 011 the side of the strong, the mighty and the great; that he is personally an ingrate and a glut ton ; that, because of his selfishness and his brutishness, he alienated every Democrat of conseqneuce in Congress who would uot serve him blindly; that, in short, he fouud the party a noble unit and left it a wreck. Where ho is best known he is most detested. Seeing thus these things, some times at long range and sometimes at short range, Mr. Watterson stood aghast and appalled. The Edgar Apgar tragedy ; the Man ning tragedy; the shameless turn ing down of friends; the assidu ous cultivation of enemies; the revolting self-assertion sometimes of exclusive virtue and sometimes of exclusive courage; in a word, the perpetual wearing of the self made halo, the great, noble, con fiding Democratic party going to destruction the while, first af frighted and then disgusted him. And, finally, as nobody seemed to be willing to speak out, he did; he did it in 1S92, and he is doing it now, and never did man speak more unselfishly or in greater dis regard to any and all consequences to himself. Mr. Cleveland derives a great advantage from the dignity which doth hedge an ex-president. We should be disloyal to a trust if we respected this. His proposed ac tivity now bodes no good to auy body except himself, and at best but ministers to his quenchless lust for the flesh-pots of place and power. Republicans may have him an' they want him. The Demo crats want none of him. They know that when he comes in at the door harmony flies out of the win dow. Heartburn. When the quantity of food taken is too large or the quality too rich, heartburn is likely to follow, and especially so if the digestion has been weakened by constipa tion. Eat slowly and not too freely of easily digested food. Masticate the food throughly. Let six hours elapse between meals and when you feel a fullness and weight in the region of the stomach after eating, indicating that you have eaten too much, take one of Chamberlain's Stomach and Liver Tablets and the heartburn may be avoided.

RliRAL ELECTRIC LINES The correspondent of the Daily States at Baton Rouge writes the following to his paper : "Congressman Broussard, at the request of the parochial affairs committee, has drawn a substitute for the Marren» bill looking to the granting of authority to police juries to give street railways the privilege of running over the pub lic roads. It will be remembered that General F F. M vies ami friends, having projected an elec tric road in the Teche section and having scoured grants over the public roads of the parishes they desire to operate iu, were preparing to carry their enterprise into effect when the Supreme Court intervened and declared that police juries were incompetent to grant such fran chises. "Mr. Btoussard has taken those sections of the city charter of New Orleans which refer to the sale of franchises for street railroads as the basis of his substitute. passed it will not only clear the It it is way for the building of the Monte-1 gut electric line and the New Iberia Morgan City line, but it. will pro vide a means for the disposal of similar franchises such as will enable tho various parishes to share in the prosperity of electric j railway enterprises. The bill gives the right to the police juries to dispose of the franchises at public auction for a percentage of the gross receipts of tho lines which acquire them. When an enterprise is projected the abutting property-holders will address a petition to the police jury setting forth their desire for tho sale of the franchise, the length of time it shall run, the advertising, tho point of sale, ote. Provision is made for the sale at one time of tho roads that are to be run through several parishes. All theoxpenses of getting up petitions, the cost of advertising, etc., are, as iu the city, to bo borne by the parties to whom the franchise may be dedi cated. Provision is also made for the inspection of the books of com panies or corporations which se oure franchises. "While the legislation is espec ially desired at this session to facilitate the carrying out of two large enterprises projected for southwestern Louisiana, the act has an interest for the whole State, since with the present de mand for the development of transportation lines into rural communities there will doubtless be many similar projects launched in different parts of Louisiana in the next ten or fifteen years. The bill will be submitted to tho parochial affairs committee at its next meeting. It will probably be introduced in both houses early this week.

The boxes are a survival of the old time habit of snuff taking, which was almost universal in the Eighteenth cen tury among persons of fashion and public men. The habit persisted well through the first half of the Nineteenth century, but during the past fifty years sniitT has gone out 0 f style. The senate boxes, how <>ver, remain, and it appears that they are kept filled. Are they used by any of the senators? A Washington paper recently noted that Senator Vest of Missouri and Senator Harris of Kansas, who formetly used the boxes occasion ally, have broken off the habit, and that the venerable Senator Pettus of Alabama is now their solitary patron. lie is the last of the snuff-takers in that historic body. "Every now and thou he goes to one of the black ebony boxes * * * aud, taking a pinch, snuffs it. Then an expansive smile spreads over his face, and with a look of thorough enjoyment, ho sneezes." Senator Pettus, being well over 80 years of age, came honestly by tho snuff habit, since I10 was taught the grand manners of tho old school of the Southern statesmen iu vogue sixty yeas ago. Doubt loss ho and tho antique snuff boxes go well together, for they make the past live again. Tho rise and fall of the snuff habit would make in teresting material for a study in social manners the past .'500 or 400 years. In i^ueeii Auno's time every gentleman had his snuff box, which was often a beautiful pieco of workmanship. Among tho high-born ladies, too, snuff was much in uso. In the older diplo macy the stuff played a great role, Talleyrand finding it quite indis pensable, siuce he could ulways make a pause in a conversation and gain time for thought by offering his snuff box to his caller or his antagonist. In our own time tho snuff habit has been largely loft to old men or women in humble walks of life, and its gradual dis use seems accomplished. Summer complaint is unsually prevalent among children this season. A well de veloped case in the writer's family was cured last week by tho timely use of Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarr hoea Remedy—ono of the best patent medicines manufactured and which is al ways kept on hand at the home of ye scribe. This is not intended as froe puff for the company, who do not advertise with us, but to benefit little sufferers who may not be within easy access of a phy sician.
