The Official Paper of San Juan County.
THURSDAY. MAKCII Z*th, 1898.
It isannounced that "Madrid is about
to play its last card." The chances are
it is a deuce, Uncle Sam holds the
trumps. m^mtmmammm^^m
If the United States should purchase
the Chilean cruiser "O'Higgius" it's
dollars to doughnuts that there would
be no difficulty in recruiting^ full com
plement of men from among the fight
ing sons of "Ould Erin."
Strange, isn't it, that the English
press and people generally should con
tinue so friendly to the United States
since that recent vicious twist of the
lion's tail administered by our valiant
Adjutant-General Bailaiue?
Tekre Haute, Indiana, has a fight
ing parson who appears to be more
patriotic than pious. In offering his
services recently to the governor in
case of war with Spain he is reported
to have said that he would do all his
power to "make Sanish the prevailing
language in Hell."
A recent Berlin dispatch says that
at a dinner given .by the bombastic
young emperor of Germany the pre
vious evening that august personage
announced to his guests, presumably
between drinks, that the United States
will not be alloy c to take Cuba while
he is emperor. The dispatch didn't
say what Billy had been drinking—
whether some old Spanish wine or just
plain "bock" beer, but it doesn't mat
ter, for Billy's bluffs are seldom con
sidered seriously even in his own
country.
One important objection to the pur
chase of foreign ships ot war which has
been brought to Secretary Long's at
tention is that the calibres of foreign
guns are different from our own, being
measured on the decimal basis. The
calibres of the United States navy are
four, six, eight, ten, twelve and thirteen
inch. The English have a 4.72 and a
9.2-inch gun and on the Continent the
calibres are estimated almost wholly
by centimeters. If we buy guns abroad
v>e shall have to depend upon foreign
sources for their ammunition.
At their April meeting the county
commissioners will probably appoint
someone to fill thejvacancy in the office
of county superintendent caused by the
resignation and removal from the
county of Miss Lee. Ex3ept in a very
few counties of the state, of which this is
one, no person is eligible for election or
appointment to the office of county su
perintendent who is not the holder of a
first-class certificate la force for the full
term which the election or appoint
ment is to cover. In the excepted
counties holders of secoud-class certifi
cates are eligible.
When it comes to "the purchase by
either the United States or Spain of
cruisers or warships of European con
struction it is evident that it is mouey
rather than "sympathy" with either
nation that counts. Uncle Sam's fat
pocketbook and the vast resources of
his immense domain are recognized the
world over as entitling him to a front
seat and most respectful treatment at
any sale which he pleases to attend.
Spain is welcome to all the craft that
she can obtain on credit after our be
loved Uncle gathers in for cash all of
the purchasable vessels that he con
eiders worthy of a place in the Ameri
can navy.
The attention of all the orchardist
readers of The Islander is particular
ly directed to the very encouraging
communication in auotlier column
from Mr. W. O. Barker, of West
Sound, Mho returned a few days ago
from an eastern trip, made especially
iv the interest of the fruit industry of
Orcas island. Having a fair variety of
of samples with him Mr. Barker had
no difficulty in convincing eastern
dealers and consumers of its superiority
over similar California production.
Our fruit "speaks for itself" and speaks
in a most convincing way and it is
encouraging to note that Mr. Barker's
trip has oonvinced him at least that no
difficulty need be experienced in
profitably marketing such of our fruit
products as are really first-class.
With the return of better times to
the people of San J nan county they
ought to direct their attention more
Persistently and systematically to the
question of road improvements. Rural
communities which maintain the best
schools and the best roads are al
most invariably the ones which oft\r
the greatest attractions to desirab'e
homeseekers. There is no good reason
why our little county as a whole should
not obtain and maintain an enviable
reputation for both. The practical
value of first-class roads is incalculable,
and the pleasure to be derived from
them, through horseback riding, car-

riage driving and bicycling, would add
another great attraction for summer
tourists and pleasure seekers, whose
coming we should do everything pos
sible to encourage.
Spaint may get some "moral sup
port" from some of the continental
nations of Europe in the event of war
with the United States, but it is cash
that she needs most and that is just
what she finds it most difficult to get.
The "powers" that have money don't
appear to care to have any chips in the
Spanish game. As regards England,
her attitude is doubtless very well in
dicated by the following comment of
the London Daily News: "Spain can
expect no support, moral or otherwise,
from England against the United
States. She has ruined Cuba, as she
has ruined or lost every other colony,
by the grosssest corruption, cruelty and
and maladministration; and she must
be left to settle the account for it with
those whom it may concern, without
any aid or sympathy on our part."
Statistics are usually dry aud un
interesting to the average reader, but
some figures which have iust been pub
lished comparing prices and conditions
on March 4, 1898, with those of the in
auguration of President McKinley,
March 4, 1897, must interest every
citizen. They show that the prices of
all farm products have advanced dur
ing the first year of President McKin
ley's occupancy of the White House;
wheat from 95 cents per bushel to $1.06;
corn from 29 cents to 35 cents; oats
from 21 cents to 32 cents; wool from 18
ceuts to 27 cents; pork from $8.50 to
$10.50 per barrel; lard from $4.37 to
$5.45 per hundred pounds, and other
articles in like proportion. In the
business world the improvement is
equally apparent. Bank clearings for
the month of Fubruary, 1898, were
$5,333,645,000, against $3,672,088,000 in
the corresponding month of 1897; the
money in circulation in the United
States has increased $5,000,000 In the
year; the gold in circulation has in
creased $37,000,000. Treasury receipts
in February were higher under the
new revenue law than in any February
since Cleveland's inauguration and in
other features the record of the year
has been equally satisfactory.

HOW TO FIND OUT.
Fill a bottle or common glass with urine
and let it stand twenty-four hours; a sedi
ment or settling indicates an unhealthy
condition ot the kidneys. When urine
stains linen it is evidence of kidney troub
le. Too frequent desire to urinate or pain
in the back, is also convincing proof that
the kidneys and bladder are out of order.
WHAT TO DO.
There is comfort in the knowledge so
often expressed, that Dr. Kilmer's Swamp
Root, the great kidney remedy fulfills
every wish in relieving pain in the back,
kidneys, liver, blador and every part of
the urinay passage It corrects inability
to hold urine and scalding pain in passing
it. or bad effects following use of liquor,
wine or beer, and overcomes that un
pleasant necessity of being compelled to
get up many times during the night to
urinate. The mild and the extraordinary
effect of Swam-Root is soon realized. It
stands the highest for its wonderful cures
of the most distressing cases. If you need
a medicine you should have the best.
Sold by druggists, price fifty cents and
