The Republican press makes no dte* guise of the purpose of their party to win the fall elections on war excitement, and to secure through a congress tbps elected the unequivocal adoption of gold standard. The New York Heralj), after lecturing congress for not passing a currency bill “to more thoroughly commit the Uuited States to the single gold standard,” makes the following , suggestion: However, an extra session of Congress will bo necessary after the fourth of next March to deal with the new colonial problems that are looming up. and there Jfood reason to believe that the president in calling this will strong ly present the need of dealing also with the vital problem of the curreucy. If any one supposes that the silver question is a dead issue he can easily undeceive himself by observing the persistent urgency of the gold press to pass a currency bill which means the gold standard and bank monopoly. Hardly an editorial appears in which attention is not directed to the necessity of carrying the elections next fail by the side issue of war for the purpose of establishing more firmly the rale of Wall and Lombord streets in this conn try. It is true that these journals un animously advise their opponents to keep still, to not agitate the money question, but fail to realize that the people may discover their game when they continue to advocate the single gold standand and cry down honest money in any shape, for no money is honest the purchasing power of which continues to increase.—Silver Knight- Watchman. The Spaniards may be ignorant, but we notice that they know enough to lay down at the right time. Men who don’t want peace—army and navy contractors, and holders of bombproof commissions. : We haven’t heard of any newspaper man being 'fhconvenfenoed by the scarcity of internal revenue stamps. Every concert has to have a con ductor. That is one reason why there will be no concert of European powers. If there had been no congressional campaign this year congress would hardly have been in such a hurry to apjourn. The more the European nations study the gunnery of our sailors the less inclination tiiey have for a scrap with our navy. The war will last forever if Spain follows Sagasta’s idea of waiting for the Spanish army to win a victory before asking for peace. The anti-bikers believe that the phvsician who declared that bicycling wonid cure lunacy intended to say “cause” instead of “cure.” The “new recruit” man is now chum ming with the “old veteran” chap. It is not surprising that foreigners find it difficult to master the English language. The nearer peace gets the more anxious some persons get to fight; and none of these made any attempt to en list while the recruiting offices were open. Those who have contended that in brutality and barbarism it was a toss-up between the Spanish soldiers and the Cuban insurgents appear to have been about right. Jf the annexation of Hawaii means anything, it means that a majority in both branches of congress favor the adoption of a colonial policy by this government. Congress adjourned willingly because it had discovered that the attention of the country was so fully engrossed by the war that little was left for con gressional doings. Those who have made a careful study of the character of the Cubans are pre dicting that the trouble on the island will have just begun when the Spaniards have been all driven away. Don’t forgot the war revenue stamps. If you send a telegram you must put a I cent stamp on It, 2 cts per fIOO on a note, deeds of over $l9O consideration oOots for each SSOO or fractiou thereof, jurats and acknowledgements lOcts. Mortgages and deeds of trust exempt up to SIOOO. The marksmanship of the Spanish soldier is much ahead of that of the Spanish sailor, but their end is the same. The only difference is that it costs more, in good American blood, to "hip the army than it does to whip the navy. »n ♦ It is not likely that the war with Spain, which will be a backnumber soon, will keep many Americans away from the Faris exposition in 1900. Long before then the Spanish sympathies of Frenchmen will have been forgotten. Ex-QuAeu Lil, is going back home, but she will hardly get there in time to participate in the flag-raising that will follow ttie arrival of Admiral Miller at Honolulu with official news of the an nexation of Hawaii. The Omaha exposition managers have so far failed to secure the tramp who was reported by a Maine paper to have sawed wood for his breakfast, lie would make a unique exhibit for the curio department. Some time ago three swarms of bees landed on the window sill just outside the office of Game Warden Swan at the state house and wont to work to build up a home at that point. Whether they sought the protection of the fish and game commissioner or whether they hailed from Itio Ulauco county and wanted to “prod” him just a little be cause of Uis receut manifesto is not known. However, during Swan’s ab sence from the city a man named Uemis, barehanded and bareheaded raised the window and captured the bees and put them in a box. Uemis now carries his bead in a camphorated sling.—Glen wood Post. «r The question as to there really being • shortage of cattle continues to be a greatly discussed question among cattle men. It is argued by many, and with reason, that the shortage only exists in certain sections where the cattle have been moved. If cattle are shipped from Nevada and located in Nebraska, the movement of these cattle from one sec tion to another docs not create a short age. They are simply on their way to market, and until the markets are un able to find the cattle they need for kill ing, then there can hardly be said to be a shortage. It is hardly likely that this event will occur this year, and yet there is unquestionably a shortage of cuttle In the country, and it will be demon strated this fall when an effort is made to fill up the feed lots. There have been a world of cattle in Kansas and Ne braska, but tbe entire supply of the country, practically, has been coming from tnat section for several months, and it will be found impossible to re place in tbe feed lots the number of head that have been taken out during the past year. For the supply of feeders this fail the west will be looked to al most entirely. Tbe west will do the best it can, but from present indications the number of cattle that will be needed, if there is anything like a corn crop, will not be found. There will be a good run through this market, but the de mand will be for two where one will come. Next year the shortage will be more pronounced. The quarantine line in the south will prove a barrier that will abut out a supply that the Indian Territory and southern Kansas usually depended upon. That country will also come west looking for cattle, and thus the demand will be accentuated, and at present tbe outlook for an increase supply next year is not bright.—Denver Stockman. “Oar customers say you manufacture three of the best remedies on earth," said tbe mercantile firm of Haas, Harris, Brim A McLain, of Dawson, Ga., in a receot letter to the Chamberlain Medi cine Co. This is tbe universal verdict. Chamberlain’s Pain Balm is tbe finest preparation in tbe world for rheuma tism, neuralgia, lame back, qulnsev, sort throat, cuts, bruises, burns, scalds, pains and swellings. A 25 cent bottle of this liniment in the house, will save a great deal of suffering. Buy it at Hav A JoHantgen’s drug store. a. a VhUlw l#ad tb* lUt for pwltr J. W.

In peace as in war the United States will set a new standard for wondering Europe. Instead of marching bowed ami beaten prisoners in the dust of her triumphal car, the great Republic will feed the famished sons of .Spain, and give them back to their people as the guerdon of a now civilization maturing in the Western world. The sorrowing women of Spain, when they see their exiled men and boys com ing back from war and pestilence by the gracious generosity of the conquering Americans, will wonder what manner of men are these hated enemies so mighty in battle and so gentle with a fallen foe. That will be a lesson in chivalry that canuot go amiss with a people that does not read the printed page. It will go home to every stronghold in armed Eu rope. The terms of the surrender of Eastern Cuba make a document In evi dence of the right to leadership which belongs to the greatest nation on earth. —St. Louis Republic. PRICE. FIVE CENTS.
