COUNTY OFFICIAL NEWSPAPER British correspondents are circulat ing, with rnvjch satisfaction, reports that the Transvaal and Free State Boers ar» having serious differences. If it is really true that they have leisure to quarrel among themselves, they can't regard the common foe as of very much importance. Is thin Htate prosperous? Just look at the figures, says the Spokane Chron icle: The condition o! the national banks of Washington at the close of busiuenH on December 2, as reported to the comptroller of the currency, shows the average reserve to have been 37..'50 per cent, against 4373 per cent on Sep tember 7, Loans and discounts increase from |9,431 t 056 to $11,224,445, stocks and net-unties from f 1,437,010 to $1, --500,325, gold coin decreases from $2, --544,404 to $2,345,344, total specie from $2,788,230 to $2,021,701, lawful m<>iie.v reserve from $2,927,073 to $2, --777,570, individual deposits increase from $18,702,972 to $19,773,838. The clamor of the Bryunites in 1890 wis for the "opening of the mints." McKinley responded, "Let us first open the mills/ The milis—long closed or running short noun* under democratic rule—were opened, hours restored,wages advaDced, the congealed currents of in dustrial activity set aOow. As a result, tbe "opening of the mints" to larger production came about, with the conse quence that in the fiscal year just closed the amount of money coined has been larger than in any year of American history. In round numbers the coinage amounted to about $130,000,000. Of this $108,000,000 was in gold,and $28, --000,000 in siiver. The mints have been worked to their utmost capacity. They could not have done more, even under a free silver administration — would not, in fact, have coined as much, because a large portion ot the gold coined would never have come to this country. So long as the insurrectionists in the It hind of Luzon contended with the American forces in open warfare, with some semblance of organization and re sponsible control, and with at least some crude recognition of the laws gov erning the conflicts of civilized races, there was every reason for exercising toward them the most chivalrous hu manity and forbearance on the part of our soldiers in the hour of victory. But when organization and control disap pear; when Aguinaldo's former armies have been, as organizations, practically annihilated; when there are no vestiges left of a Tagal governnunt, and no mil itary authorities to give commands, or with whom the amenities of civilized warfare can be exchanged; when, in short, any forces continuing to appear agaiust the American troops have degen erated to mere banditti, devoted to the purposes of plunder and private ven geance, the time for gentleness and for bearance has passed. Our forces are no longer engaged in war, but in the restor ation of order in a war swept land. The existence of guerrillas or banditti cannot bs tolerated. Buy the Danish West Indies. The question of tbe future of the Dan ish West Indies is again before the United States in concrete form. It is generally known that Denmark wishes to sell the islands and that Germany would like to buy them. It ia under stood that Germany has inquired in an informal way if the United States has any objection to such transfer, and that this government has intimated a prefer ence that the islands remain under Dan ish rule. It is obvious, however, that the United States cannot always persist in a mere general objection to such transfer. To require Denmark to keep something she wishes to part with and to prevent Germany from buying some thing which Denmark wishes'to sell is merely to play the part of the dog in the manger. At first glance it might seem that a mere transfer of St. Thomas and the other Danish West Indies from one European power to another i H a matter in which the United States has no par t.cular concern. But the proposed sale is from a small and non-expanding power to a great nation with ambitions and abiHtv in the way o f expansion. The Monroe doctrine did not seek to alter the existing facts with regard to Kuropean possessions in this hemisphere but merely declared that euch posses sions should not be increased nor ex tended This was the attitude of the L nitedStatP. in the Venezuela case, and Great Britain was compelled to admit its correctness. When Germany an ex panding world power, proposes' to oc cupp a position at the eastern gate of the Caribbean sea and the gulf of Mexico over against the entrance of any I&th' mian canal, it is evident that the case is altered. The American people may well reflect whether it is prudent to per mit another great European power to gain a territorial foothold in this hemi sphere, no matter how friendly are our present relations with that power. The safe and manly course ia to ask Denmark to revive the convention of 1807 and transfer her Went Indian is lands to the United States. Since our acquisition of Porto Rico the Danish West Indies are not worth as much to us for military reasons as they once were, but they are etill of value. It is understood that Denmark asks only $3,000,000 for the islands now, as against $7,500,000 for two of them in 1807. Alt the West Indian islands ought to belong to the United States. The quarrel between President Johnson and congress lost us St. Thomas and the narrow-mindedness of Charles Sum ner lost us Santo Domingo. To have possessed either during the war with Spain would have saved us much anxiety and expense. Every one now sees that President Grant was a statesman in ad vance of his time, and that Sumuer and the other senators who defeated the Santo Domingo purchase were the short sighted "little Americans" of their day. The people of the Danish West Indies voted overwhelmingly in favor of annex ation thirty years ago, and there is no reason to believe that they would not now prefer the rule of the United States to that of any European power. Porto Rico is ours now and Cuba is under our control. In buying the Danish West Indies we would be taking under the American flag a people who desire its protection and would exclude the pos sibility of another strong European power building up a great naval and commercial base near our borders. The United States should acquire the Danish West Indies. NORTHWEST NEWS. The colored porters of Spokane have organized a union. Tacoma rolling mills are shipping bar iron to San Francisco. South Bend has reduced saloon license from $1,000 to $500. Port Townsend has organized a mud shoveling gang for tramps who visit that town. New Whatcom is considering the mat ter of building a third school-houee, to cost $30,000. Whatcom county is about to buy school land of the state and establish a county poor farm. Commencing with the new year the pay of about 500 street-car men of Se attle will be advanced 10 per cent. Chehalis has a proposition for loca tion of a woolen mill in that city, if it wants to raise $10,000 as a bonus for it. At Seattle, a Christmas tree on the upper floor of a prominent hotel was burned, and all the presents were de stroyed. George H. Emerson, of Montesano, recently purchased 800 acres of timber lands near' Grass creek, Chehalis county, paving $50 an acre. The Port Discovery mill, one of the largest in the Puget Sound country, is soon to be put in operation, after sever al years of idleness. It is estimated that the call for war rants recently made by the county treasurer of Whatcom county covers about $170,000 of county indebtedness. Jeremiah E. Crabb, a soldier at Fort Wright, near Spokane, took a drink of wood alcohol, recently, to satisfy his thirst for liquor, and was dead in a few hours. Two men held up nine men in a saloon at Hartford, in Snohomish county, a few days ago. getting several watches and considerable money, and escaping uninjured. In Spokane the parishioners of the Rev. G. William Giboney gave him a pudding for a Christmas present, with direction to "put in your thumb and pull out a plum.' He put in his thumb and pulled out $110 in gold. Justice A. A. Galbraith, of Acme pre cinct, Whatcom county, arrested three burglars the other day. He covered them with an empty revolver, and after they had surrendered, seven revolvers were taken from them. Mrs. Pauline Luck committed suicide Saturday night, at her home about four miles from Puyallup, by cutting her throat. She hae been mentally unbal anced since the death of her first hus band, Fred Bolincer, two years ago. Beginning January 8, lunches will be served at the Spokane high school. They will consist of hot soup, hot coffee, hot and cold bread, cold meat, doughnuts and fruit. They will be sold to the pupils at a minimum charge of five cents. The wife of an Italian fruitvender in Seattle arose Wednesday night, and went for a drink of water. As she was returning the family dog set up a dis turbance that awakened the man, who supposed his wife was a burglar, and took a shot at her. The bullet wounded the woman in the shoulder. John Carlson, a Northport miner, saw a weasel in his woodshed Saturday. He sent a rifie ball after the little animal, but the bullet entered two boxes of giant powder and the explosion that followed wiped the cabin off the face of the earth. Carlson miraculously escaped death, though he was bedly hurt. Steamship Walla Walla arrived at Tacoma Christmas day bedecked from truck to bridge with Christmas ever greens. To each topmast head was lashed a young fir tree and then down to the deck every cross tree, cargo boom end, boat davit and point of vantage, carried its emblem of Christmas. Hemp Exports from Philippines. Washington, Jan. I.—Assistant Sec retary of War Melkeljohn, ii a letter tc Representative Long of Kansas regard ing the opening of the hemp ports in the Philippine islaads, says: "Theestimat ed exports of hemp from the Philippine islands for one year of American occu pation will approximate 100,00 tons, of which amount 29,000 tons should be credited to the United States. This places the estimated exports to the I nited States for the year of American occupation at about 17,000 tons less than the exports of 1897. This is ac counted for by the fact that there have been opened for shipment only three ports of the Philippine islands/ Every effort has been made by the war depart ment in the past and will be made in the future to comply with requests to open all the so-called hemp ports of th^ is lands." COLFAX GAZETTE, COLFAX, WASHINGTON, JANUARY 5, 1900. Grotesque Warrior*. Here is a (etching description of a military review which we cull from Mr. Harold Gorsts' book on China: "At one extremity of the field there wa3 raised on a slight elevation of the ground a platform shaded by an im mense red parasol an<W>rnameuted with lanterns, streamers and some large lanterns that did not seem par ticularly necessary, as the sun was shining in full splendor. The inspector extraordinary of the imperial army and the principal civic and uiilitary mandarins of the town were on the platform, seated in armchairs before little tables covered with tea things and boxes filled with excellent tobacco. The moment arrived to begin. A little culveriu that stood near the platform was fired off, the military judges cov ering their ears with their hands to protect them from the frightful detona tion, then a yellow flag was hoisted to the top of one of the forts, the tom toms sounded a furious charge, and the soldiers rushed together pellniell, uttering terrible cries and grouping themselves around the flag of their company. "It is impossible to imagine any thing more whimsical and comic than the evolutions of the Chinese soldiers. They advance, draw back, leap, pirou ette, cut capers, crouch behind their shields, us if to watch the enemy, then jump up again, distribute blows right and left an^ then run away with all their might, crying, 'Victory, victory!' " Mr. Kimberlcy's Nimble Wit. James G. Blame was nonplused once while he was secretary of state. One of the applicants for a consulate In Japan was the late Samuel Kimber ley of Baltimore, who died in the serv ice in Central America. After he had presented his credentials Mr. Blame said: "I should like to appoint you, Mr. Kimberley, but I have made it a rule to recommend no one who does not speak the language of the country to which he is sent. Do you speak Jap anese?" "Cert-t-tainly, Mr. B-Blaine," stam mered Mr. Kimberley. "A-a-ask me s-s-something in J-J-Japanese and I'll answer you." Mr. Blame hadn't a word to say, but the Japanese post went to another man, all the same, and Kimberley went to Central America. Another story is told of Kimberley equally creditable to his nimble wit. One day he met a young woman who threw her arms impulsively around his neck and kissed him. Seeing her mis take, she drew back and angrily ask ed: "Aren't you Mr. JonesV" "N-n-no, madam," replied Kimber ley, bowing; "I'm n-n-not, but 1 w-w-wish to thunder I w-w-was."— Saturday Evening Post. The Prunnncintion Explained. "There is a family in Virginia," says Collier's Weekly, "the name of which is spelled 'Enroughty,' but it is pro nounced 'Darby.' This fact, familiar to many Americans, happened to be told by Miss Hayward at a dinner in London at which Mr. Kipling was present, when he broke in: 'You have saved my reputation by telling that. You are the first man, woman or child who could back me up in it.' "The explanation of the peculiarity is that the Derbys were an English fami ly who settled in Virginia in the colo nial days. One of the sons, the tradi tional black sheep of the family, was left a share in his father's will on con dition that be changed his name. He changed his written name to En roughty, but continued to call himself Derby. "On hearing this explanation Mr. Kipling said, 'I think I will change my name to Smith.' 'You can spell it Smith if you like,' was the reply, 'but It ■will always be pronounced Kipling,' a remark which caused him to look 'as unfeignedly pleased as a boy.'

He could stand that fairly well if his mind were easy. But Americans are busy. They have work to do—plans to make —schemes to execute. They are " plung ers." They line up their incomes as soon as they receive them or re-invest them with the idea of increase. They cannot afford to be sick. Sickness is a calamity— a financial calamity as well as a phys ical one. So the sick man •worries, and the more he worries, me sicker he grows. Worry is a good thing at the right time. The miniate you feel a symptom of sickness—worry about it—do something about it —cure yourself. When you begin to feel run-down—when a twinge of rheumatism tells you plainly that your blood is impaired—when you are losing flesh and vitality, go to the nearest drug store and get a bottle of Dr. Pierces Golden Medical Discovery. It is the greatest blood purifier and tissue builder on earth. It cures rheumatism and all other blood diseases by curing the Ci*ase. It purifk-s the blood and puts the blood making organs into good, healthy, working order. It tones up' the stomach, stirs up the liver, helps the kidneys in their work and puts suffering nerves at rest. It Contains HO whisky, alcohol, opiuu: or other dangerous drugs and does not, therefore, create a craving for stimulants or narcolics. James li. Crnmpton, Ksq., of Sharpsburg, Washington Co., McL, writes: "I was in busi nessin Baltimore, sna had rheumatism for three months; couldn't walk nt all. I tried the best doctors I could get t>ut they did me no good. I took three bottles of Dr. Pierces Golden Medi cal Discovery and it cured me sound. I came home to Sharpeburg and there were three cases of different diseases. I advised the patients to use Dr. Pierces medicine, which they did. and all were cured. I have sold over one hundred dollars' worth of your medicine by telling peo ple how it cured me. You can write to our drug gist, Mr. G. F. Smith, in our town and he will tell you what I did for you in regard to selling and advertising your great remedies."' _ /r -- -v^H-d~" ' n Dewcy'i Foreaißbt. "The battle of Manila was won in Hongkong harbor," said Admiral Dew ey to me when I first saw him in May, 1898, and heard him describe the great fight. Many times since then I heard him repeat the same sentiment, and the more the truth of it Is considered the more light it sheds on his charac ter. While he was brave, strong, prompt and decisive in action, he was thoughtful, cautious, deliberate and sure in preparation. Day after day he summoned his cap tains to discuss all the possibilities and eventualities of a conflict with the enemy. He gave them an oppor tunity to say when, where and how the battle should be fought. From junior to senior he called upon them to express their opinions freely. If any man had a novel idea, it was given careful consideration. If it was an old one with improvements, it was viewed in all phases. After the admiral had patiently aeard his captains and duly interro gated them, he quietly told them bia own exact plan of battle and just what he expected of each man. Whether this was made up originally out of his own ideas or from such in union with the best points advanced by his cap tains, it was reached only after thor ough deliberation and was final. —Hon. John Barrett in Harper's Magazine. Thert is more Catarrh in this section of th 3 country than all other disease* pat together, and until the last few years was euppoged to be incurable.

DowarQ nf tho flnntfirc' There is not the slightest doubt that the Duff Ql S Ui 1116 UUutUlO doctors do more harm than good in treating Contagious Blood Poison; many victims or Dafnhuinrl/.

This they do by driving the poison into the system, and endeavor to keep it shut in with their constant doses of potash and mercury. The mouth and throat and other delicate parts then break out into sores, and the fight is continued indefinitely, the drugs doing the system more damage than the disease itself. Mr. H. L. Myers, 100 Mulberry St., Newark, N. J., says: "I had spent a hundred dollars with the doctors, when I realized that dMM^, they could do me no good. I had large spots all over my , body, and these soon broke ort into running sores, and I £^ __ JB endured all the suffering which this vile disease pro- fcr^^ daces. I decided to try 8. 3. S. as a last resort, and was Br soon greatly improved. I followed closely your 'Direc- ffc*> *f tions for Self-Treatment,' and the large splotches on my yA. chest began to grow paler and smaller, and before long ' Jfe^"' y^S disappeared entirely. I was soon cured perfectly and my J&B^V /|L skin has been as clear as glass ever since. I cured my- ||jffTL jVil, Jfl self at home, after the doctors had failed completely?'
