"Ainon"; the visitorsat the White I lous" today was C. K. C'orsaut. a merchant of Puerto Kico. To the President Mr. Cor-.-ant talked at some length. He described conditions on the island. The most im jiortant thing that he ssiid was, that th- business men of Puerto Rico would have no objection to the proposed tariff of 1" per cent of the Dingley rates. Ho saiti also that, aside from an element which always antagonizes, there was little com plaint on thepartof tho people generally against the legislation. From the White House Mr. Corsaut went to the capiM to tell the Senators what he had said to the President about the tariff bill." Some Financial Oddities. Some twenty odd years ago Montgom ery & Itoecker at Oregon and Frazer V McDonald at Forest City transacted all the banking business done in Holt conn ty. The railroads were built and a great change was wrought. At present ne have eleven banking institutions I5y compairing the statements of the differ ent banks we fiud that the dejiosits in tho northern half of the county ?ii".0tJ) exceed the deposits of the south half of the county (Clu.boti) over two to one Mound City, Craig. Maitland and Corn ing all have banks, and in giving these Hgure3 thev are all counted as being in the northern half as against ( )regon and Forest Citv in tho south half. Holt county has 130,000 inhabitants and tak ing the deposits above, this gives 00 to every man, woman and child in the county. Hard times: Well, we guess not! Forest City Journal. The heaviest deposits as stated above are in the northern portion of our roun ty, while the inonevs. notes, etc., held in Oregon, alone are larger by S10.00J than the amount assessed to the credit of Mound City, Maitland ami Craig. The real estate values of Mound City are larger than Oregon and Forest City by S20.000. A tyjiographical error in the above make Holt county's population 1SO,000, when it should have read SIS.0U0 and the per capita deposits about S.'hD.OO instead of .OO. The average uejiosils in the eight banks in the north part of the county is 670,IJ"J and that of the three banks in the south part is S'.'O.OOO. Strange Similarity. Ex-Representative Springer tells a cur ious story that is worthy of investiga tion bv the bureau of ethnology. Hesays that a Creek Indian from the Indian territory, who was a member of the rough riders, re-inlisted in tho regular army at the close of the Spanish war and was sent to the Philippine islands. inie campaigning with his regiment in the southern part of the archipelago he found a tribe of Malays whose, dialect was almost the same as the aboriginal language of the Creek nation. He could understand them and thev could under stand him without ilifliculty, and he was able to act as interpreter for his officers with a tribe he had never heard of 1" fore. Chicago Herald. There is a Siamese boy stav ing with Mrs. Knowles of our city studying the English language. Mr. Frank Uennetr, brother of Mrs. Knowles, spent several years in the United States army, and be came familiar with several Indian dia lects. When he heard the young Siamese boy speaking his native tongue, he was astonished to tind that the language was so similar to the Indian languages he had learned, that he could under stand much of the lioy's conversation. This similarity between the American Indian dialects and the languages of the far east furnishes an interesting study for the ethnologist. Someone recently attempted to prove that the Garden of Eden was located in Colorado, and that America was the birth place of the human jaw. Maybe this is true. Who knows? Our City Affairs. The election in our city Tuesday was as ouiet as a village funeral. Mr. Arthur Petree was electiii Major, Clarence O. Moller city marshal and Lin. Carro'l. city collector. Saimi! Schulto was chosen alderman from tho west ward and Messrs. Frank Kreek and John Philbrick from the east ward. Mayor Alkire will retire, hu having re fussd to be a candidate again, having served four years. During his adminis tration our city has made some long strides in the way of improvement, and our city has been placed along side with the more progressive fourth clans cities of our stale. While Mayor we have put in an electric light system and a water works plant, that are second to none usually put in similar cities. The city owns these plants, and is a practical demonstration that municipal ownship of such plants is the proper solution of such problems. While it is to lie ex pected that such enterprises will be of some expense to the city, yet when the j great nenetit is considered, the expense becomes insignificant. These improve ments have necesitatetlniuch labor, care and thought, and the exjienditure of many thousands of dollars. As our chleT executive Mr. Alkire ha given his very best efforts in behalf of our citizens, watching their every interest with a jsalous care, and during his entire term we have never heard a criticism offered by any of our representative citieus or x Wers a In the management of our ctr anatrs, noi ha- there been a ques ti .ii:is i . hou i'i,- rilys revenues have L. ii t xjk nde.l 11- has gncn us aclea.i. huiiorab'?, ail ltii!.:slr.ai.)ii. and it hw successor will omy tin a-. t-j:oii is a fll. uc ran only say that truiv furtunati'. .Mr. Alkire ; has lii-.-n ably asisted ly Messrs.

He applied to Judgo I-romeiitin for a writ of habeas corpus and t!i judge dismissed him from cus tody. At once Jackson cited the judg before him fercontempt and in due time the issue between them reached Prcsi dent Monroe in Washington. The judge set up that Florida was part of tho United States and that all constitution al rights, including habeas corpus, ap plied to it. Jack-on set up that the constitution had no force or effect what ever in a territory, and that the judge had no jurisdiction except to enforce tht two laws that congress had extended over it. He uWd ttiat until congress provided laws, he, the governor, was IMsnessed i " the supreme legislative judicial and executive authority, and that he was limited in no maninr by the constitution President Monroe and the department of justict upheld Jackson's view of the case, and he continued to rule as an absolute despot outside of the constitution until congress provided laws for Florida's government. The arguments in congress uihiii the I.oiiisiana purchase convinced Demo crats and Federalists alike that territory so acquired could be treated as the pro; erty of the United States and governed by congress independent of the provis ions laid down in the constitution for the government of organized states and territories Jefferson himself establish ed a government in Louisiana and con wn ted to and established different im imrt duties for the Port of Xew Orleans from those which obtained elsewhere. Every Democratic president andevery Democratic congress which has had to dy with the annexation of new territory has treated this territory as the prop- ert of and not part of the United States. It was held by Jefferson and by a long line of Democratic presidents after him that such territory was without, and not under, the constitution, and that an act of congress was necessary to bring its inhabitanlsnr its government within tho lines established by the national organ iziil law. The constitution of the state of Mi souri does nothing of itself. Every part of it requires a law to put it in operation Xo part of it can reach St. Ijouis, Kan sas City or Holt county unless imparted to it by an act of the legislature. The position held by Tui. Skntinei. upon this subject, is that held by the Uepublican party since birth, and which was a part of the party's platform adop ted at Chicago in 1-iX'. and was as fol lows: "That the dogma that theconstitution, of its own force, carries slavery into any or all of the territories of the United States is a dangerous political heresy, at variance with the explicit provisions of that instrument itf-elf. with contempor auejus exiiositiun, and with legislative and judicial precedent; is revolutionary in its tendencies and subversive of the peace and harmony of the country " The Hon. John S. Little of Arkansas is a Democrat probably iu line with his party on the great question of constitu tional aelf-extfiision to the territories, and is evidently in harmonv with the view of the Tribune. On Monday of last week. Mr Little rejiortcd to the House, for the committee on Indian Affairs a bill levying a capita tion tax of one dollar annually on all male persons over twenty one years of and not members of any Indian tribe, residing in the Indian territory; and additional exei-c taxes. Xow, if the Constitution covers the territories, the taxes provided by Mr. Little's bill are unconstitutional, not be ing uniform throughout I lie united States, and they cannot be enforced by th" i-otirts. Does the Hon. John S. Little, Demo crat of Arkansas and the Jefferson Citv Tribune believe, or do they not believe in the power of congress to impose an excise tax sii-ciaHy applicable in the In. dian Territory and not elsewhere? Likewise, do they believe in taxation without repn-sentation? Observer's Observations. We '.er agreeably eurpn-ed u short time ago. to learn that our school board had added vo.-ai music to the cirnculum of school work, aud recommended that all ttie teacher give instruction in this branch in i.ur public schools. A little singing we .ne tol.f lias been practiced oyer there all along, but the riidments f music h:ne neier, as we understand it, been taught until now. Miss Delia Kuukel offered a fe.v whis ago to take up music in tne school, and give nil the pupils from the highest to the lowest grades a th trough drill in Hie subject. The b ar.l at that time hoivever.d'd not feel able financially to authorize the work t' be dune, but now since it is made a part of each te.iclter's duties, that subject can be carried right along with all the others and without hiring an addito ml teacher. There is no doubt of the good that comes from in--truction in music. Children leurn to read the notes at sight io the same way thru they learn to read print, and having learned this 6u young it beconiei almost ii p-irt of their Datures and i never for gotten in all their after life. Besides the practice of singing is a most salutary exercise for all young people io both its ! influence upon the emotions, and in its I j development of the respiratory organs, , 1 here is no doubt that for defective chest development and chronic heart trouble, biuging ib an unequalled exer uiee.' Of course the singer should be so clad ad to hIIow absolute freedom of the ! client movements, and there should be I no constriction of the neck or waiet .'"lie collar should be low and ample and , jf corsets are worn that should be roomy and loose. It is said that one mistake eume music teachers make is that of having their pupils practice too much; that forty minutes practice every day iu fingiug is belter than four hours a duy would b at the same exercise and that if the forty minuteB were divided up into periods rf ten or twelve minutes each this would be better still. Ilegu litrily and mil loog practice hours, (w Inch only fatigue the voice and wear it ouli is paid to be the greatest aid to advancement. The voice of a young person must necessarily develop very gradually, and no doubt any attemp to force itsgroth would be a fatal mistake. Music is very like penmanship (in one rcspect.j An ounce of theory and pound of practice mukeu a very good combination of ingredients for each of them. We hope that their experiment of introducing music into our cchool may prove highly successful. We see by the cession acts of the last General assembly that seven different amendments to the constitution of the state will be biibmitted to the voters at tiie election next fall. Tins, in addi Hon to all the national, elite, congres sional senatorial and county candidates will make u long ticket but we believe that some of thetu ought to be adopled, The tirst amendment permits county courts to levy a special lux of nu. to exceed 15 cents on the S100 valuation for road and bridge purposes. The ob jeel of this amendment is to secure f larger fund for road improvement. The levy of the tax is discretionary with the courts. Under the second amendment three fourths of the jurors, in civil cases, in By rendoru verdict, in courts of record, and in courts not of record, in both civil and criminal cases, two-thirds of the jury which need n-Jl consist of twelve men may render n veidict. Under the present law a jury'e verdict must nlways he un animous. The amendment does away with the "hanging" of the jury by the disagreement of one or two men. The third amendment permits the prosecution of persons criminally for felony or misdemeanor by either inilict ment or information. The fourth amendment provides that juries in courts of recoids may consist of less than twelve men. It also pro vides that grand juries shall not be con vened e.cepton order of the judge of a court having the power to try felony cases. These amendments, if carried, are expected to reduce materially the criminal costs particularly in grand jury cases. The fifth amendment deals with the subject of taxation. It provides t'aat a mortgage or other obligation by which a debt is secured, shall be treated as an interest in the nropeitj. Io cbscs of debts so secured, the value of the pro nertr. Ies the mortgage, shall be as sessed to the owner of the property. If the owner of the securities shall pay the tax on the properly it shall operate as a corresponding additiou to the debt. It the owner of the property shall pay the tax on the security it shall diminish the indebtedness or mortagage to that ex tent. The amendment seeks to relieve "double assessments" Bnd to distribute the burden of taxation equitably be tween the givers aud holders of nior tages. The sixth (tad t-eventli amendments deal with the St. Louis World's Fair. The sixth pennls the city of St. Louis to issued 55,000.000 in 4 per cent bunds for the purpose of the Fair, provided a majority of the voters in the city do not vole Hgainst the adoption of the amend ment. Thib applies only to St. Luuit'. The other amendment givts llie geueral Htembly power to nppropnale 1 1.000,000 from the state -.inking fund for a Mis souri exhibit at the Fuir. Olt-t.f:vi.i:. Henry Lamme for Governor. We hayelutely through various sources heard an exprei-sinn favorable to the candidacy of Henry Lamme, ol Seduha, for Governor, an expression especially noticahle among the calm anJ thinking elamentof the patty, to which tl-e per sonality and real capacityof Mr. Limine appeals with patent f.irce. With all due defetence und respect to the distin guished gentlemen aspiring to the honor of leadership in the coming campaign, Tin: Sknti.nei. fiels that Heury Lamme is the peer of any one uame yet men tioned. While possioly not as fluent a speaker as some we have heard men tioned, his addresses carry with them food for thought; ine brilliant and logical iu expressiou, and are alwuye such as are calculated to live betoud thehiur. In statet-manship, in grasp of thought, in devotion to the tenets of Kepublicanism, iu freudom from fac tional feeling within the party, he would be in our mind an ideal candidate, divid ing the houurs vvilh Geo. A. eal, of Kansas City iu this latter respect, aud Tub Skstinkl, volcmg an it does the etalward Republican bentnnent of Holt county, would bo gratified, indeed, to iloat at its masthead after the state con ention has spoken its dictum, the uame of that earnest gentleman and sincere lepubhcan, Henry Lamme, not of Sedalia, but Henry Lamme, of Missouri, for governor.

Worth Talking About. Thejjiovements in real estate in Holt county for the last three mouths have been usually large both in numbers as well as in amount involved in the tran saction. Recorder of deeds Heller with his deputy, have had all the business they could conveniently attend to. They make a neat set of records, and take great pains in having their work done right and promptly. There were 228 warranty and quit claim Deeds tiled dur ing the three months ending March 31, 1900, the considerations in these transac tions amounted to 131,485, as against tl04,571 for the entire year of 189G. There were 187 trust deeds filed Talued at $253,000. There were 177 releases made involving $180,010. this is within f 20,000 of the total value of releases filed during the entire year of 1890. When these transactions are taken in connec tion with the?829,000 on deposit in the various banks of our county, surely there can be no legitimate room in our fair county for the calamity howler to belly ache.
