NEW POSTAL ARRANGEMENTS.
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:

•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

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. _____________

In discussing the merits of Ripans
Tabules with a brother M. D. said:
*' Several years ago I asserted that
If one wished to become a philan.
thopist, and do a beneficent deed—
one that would help the whole hu
man race—nothing could be better
than to procure the Roosevelt Hos
pital prescription, whitk is the basis
of the Ripans Tabules, and cause it to
be put up in the form of a ketchup

how Ripans Tab

bought a five-cent
carton and asked:
"Do you hare
much call for
these?"
He was referred
to a gentleman who
proved to be the
Lead of the depart
ment. He said:
" The sale of Ripans Tabules is
constant and is increasing, due
especially to the influential character
of the testimonials in the daily press,
and growing out of these, through
the recommendation of friend to
friend. Satisfaction with them is
very general. When once they are
begun I notice that a permanent
customer for them is made. This, 1
believe, is through their intrinsic
merit, which proves the bona fide
character of the advertising. I think
them specially useful in the general
run of stomach troubles."

An Elderly Lady.
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.
