The question of establishing postal facilities and postal rates to our new acquisitions in Hawaii, Cuba, Porto Rico and the Philippine Islands is one of the most interesting which it has fallen to the lot of the United States Postoffice to settle. Hitherto we have had only inland postage to adjust, and of late years this has been regulated by a uniform rate, regardless of distance or other conditions. Arrangements have already been made for forwarding mails to our forces in cuba, Porto Rico, the Philip pine Islands and Hawaii, and a kind of provisional postal system has been thus built up. But these arrangements are necessarilj' only temporary, and the problem of permanent adjustment remanius to be dealt with. The rates to Cuba were fixed some time ago by the departmeut at the usual rates for foreign postage, that is, five cents for letters, two cents for pos tal cards. This is consistent with the view of Cuba as ours by temporary military occupation, rather than as a permanent possession. But in the case of Porto Rico and Manila quite boou, and in that of Hawaii already, we have territories actually a part of the United States, but severed by long etretches of ocean. The theory of a low uniform rate of postage through out the United States would require the extension of the same service and the same rates to those distant islands. This, of course, would mean a con siderable addition to the postal deficien cy, for it woutd be impossible to carry mail to these distant places at the in land rate without loss. We should have the precedent of England in maintaining higher rates of colonial postage. Probably that will be neces sary in some, if not all, cases, for a while at least. THE ISLES OF THE SEA. It appears from recent compilations made by the U. S. Treasury Depart ment that our new acquisition, Ha waii, made during the year 1897 im portations valued at $8,838,203, nearly 80 per cent of which came from the United States. We sent the islands over $8,000 in agricultural implements, $108,000 in animals, $223,000 in wheat, and $356,000 in other breadstuff's, $45, --000 in fruits, $74,000 in hay, $171,000 in tobacco, and $31,000 in vegetables. As to Cuba, it appear that she has been, under normal conditions, buying annually about twenty-five million dollars' worth of goods from Spain, about four million dollars' worth from Great Britain, less than a million dol lars' worth each from France and Ger many, while from the United States her purchases have ranged from eight to twenty-four million dollars in value. The follawiiig table shows the lead ing articles exported to Cuba from the United States in 1893, the year of our greatest exports to that island: £*«!•. -.—. $4,023,917 F10ur.............. 2,821,557 Machinery „...... . .. 2,792,050 Hams 761,082 Corn ........;...... ... 552,G50 Bacon •• •.. 556.747 Potatoes 554, 15 Beans and Peas 39-2,962 •The exports from the United States to Porto Rico in 1897 were $1,988,688; in 1896. $2,102,094; In 1892, $2,856,003. They were of about the same character ■ m the exports to Cuba, wheat flour being the largest item, $516,188 in 1897; lard, $228051; bacon and hams, $112,602 --pickled pork, $152,411; beans and peas' $57,550; machinery, $69,462. Under the heading "Soma Results of the War," (he Post- Intelligencer publishes the following: $" *?**" -..April 21, 189S war closed Amru*t n «mi Dunmon of hostilities::::::::^^ iJJ f«KS Expenses ol[actual warfare tiso,o<K),dno Americans killed 279 Americana wounded """"**" -"1 aur Spaniards killed .....;rrz^:""f^i:S Spaniards w0unded.,:,..,.,.:..,."*!"

'• 51,650 7,<Wm!oo The Post-Intelligencer is consider ably' in error in its figures as to (he arva of the Philippines, which is given by the latest authorities (including, by he way, the Post-Intelligencer War Atlas) as 114,826 square miles, ft is not yet certain that all this territory is lost to Spain, the disposition of the Philippines not having been definitely determined, but the probabilities are that it is. As to "Guam," there is no specific stipulation in the protocol as to its surrender, reference being made merely to "one island" of the Caroline archipelago, to be selected by the United State*. Very likely it will be "Guam," which has a good harbor and is perhaps the most desirable of the Central Carolines. The aggregate area of all these former insular possessions of Spain is approximately 159,800 square miles, or very nearly as much as the combined area of the great states of Oregon and Washington, and only 4,416 square miles less than the area of the ten New England and Middle states—the mostly densely populated and in point of individual wealth the richest in the Union. The editor is in receipt of a personal letter from the president of the Fair haven Laud Company—Mr. Larrabee, in which he speaks very highly of the gentleman who is building the ice, cold storage and fruit canning plants there—Mr. H. L. Roan. Mr. Larrabee says that Mr. Roan expects in a few days to go to California and secure the services of a man who thoroughly un derstands the fruit business in every department, and hopes to be ready to handle the late fruits. He intends now to make contracts with farmers to raise peas and other vege tables that he can can to advantage next summer, so as to keep the plant in operation as much as possible until he can get sufficient fruit, and of course, if profitable, will handle vege tobles as well as fruits. This information should be of in terest) to |many orchadists and gar deners in this county and it is to be hoped that the people generally will do everything that they can consistently to make the new Fairhaven enterprise a success, for its success means much to our fruit interests. An interesting and reassuring feature of the financial and business situation at the present time, says the Boston Journal, is the unanimity of opinion that prevails in all quarters—both east and west—to the effect that despite the prevalence of war, with its attending evils, and in the face of much that would ordinarily be counted as retard ing influences, our country is manifestly on the threshold of a new era of prosper ous development that promises to be greater and more far-reaching than any that it has ever known. Our people are coming to realize that our resources are gradually increasing, and that in financial as well as iv physical prowess they are, as a nation, in a stronger and better position than ever before in their history. Spain would have been a good deal ahead in a material way if her blunder ing government had been a little more willing to sacrifice a bit of that Spanish "honor," of which they boast so pom pously, rather than lose their chief colonial possessions. They are quite welcome to their "honor; it is of a sort for which Americans have little use. But we are quite willing to keep the colonies, or at least exercise a sort of paternal supervision over them that will be of incalculable benefit to them and a source of no little profit to us. In apportioning the delegates to the Republican county convention, the central committee apparently over looked the fact that the county com missioners at their July meeting cre ated a new voting precinct consisting of Stuart, Speiden and adjacent islands. Under the terms of the call this pre cinct is entitled to at least one delegate, and it is to be hoped that the conven tion will have an opportunity to wel" come some good Republican from there. _____________ NOTICE.

An elderly lady living at Fordham Heights, a part of New York City, and who was known to be a warm advocate of Ripans Tabulee for any «case of liver trouble or indigestion, said to a reporter who visited her for ■ the purpose of learning the particu lars of her case: " I had always employed a physician and did bo on the last occasion I had for one, but at that time obtained no beneficial results. I had never had any faith in patent medicines, but having seen Ripans Tabules recommended very highly in the New York Herald con cluded to give them a trial, and found they were just what my case demanded. I have never employed a physician since, and that means a Bavins of $2 a call. A dollar's worth of Ripans Tabules lasts me a mouth, and I would not be without them now if it were my last dollar." At the time of this inter view there wero present two daugh ters who specially objected to their mother giving a testimonial which should parade her name in the newspapers, but to do this the elder lady argued : 'There may be other cases just like mine, and I am sure I take great pleasure in recommending the Tabules to any one afflicted as I was. If the telling about my case in the papers enables gome other person similarly affected to be as greatly benefited as I have been, I see no objection." The daugh ters, knowing how earnestly she felt about the benefit she had received, decided she was quite right.
