The most hazardous part of the
work on the Manila telegraph cable is
that completed between San Fran

bed is precipitous, with valleys 31,G00

of 18,000 feet, while the last section
will be laid over a series of mountains.
A great deal of interest has been
aroused' in English railway circles by
the possibility of using powdered coal
on locomotives, and thus doing away
with all stoking. An automatic feed
er is fixed to the front of the firebox,
and it is claimed there will be a large
saving in the coal bill. The system
is somewhat similar to oil fuel, the
powdered coal being fed with air into
the furnace and steam is very quick
The Brooklyn Citizen notes that
Mark Hnnna'b voice has proved to be
much more potent than that of the
occupant of the White House; All the
president's fine talk has been made
empty by the refusal of his party

himself has been constrained by his
presidential ambitions to submit in
silence to treatment which would
have driven him into open opposition

The St. Louis j lobe-Democrat ad
mits that the trust legislation by the

that is because there was no ground

the ground swell will come later.
There is no doubt that the people are
doing a good deal of studying about
these' same trusts, and that, this will
be discovered later in the history of
the country ierhaps about the time
that there is a national election impending.
The Chicago American says very
truly that if the American govern
ment remains superior it may pro
gress. It must study and adopt means
to improve the condition of the peo
ple and to ennoble them. This gov
ernment should allow no other , to
surpass it. Still it must be remem
bered that other governments are
not idle. In all of them the trend of
popular thought is for improvement.
In some of them very excellent poli
cies along certain lines have been
adopted. The students of govern
ment live in other countries as well
as- in this. "The besVin everything"
should be the motto of Americans.
The Telephone Situation.
The telephone situation that has
developed- in Rock Island and Moline,
as a consequence of the existence of
two exchanges is not surprising in
the least to those who have given
the subject serious forethought from
the time rival exchanges were origin
ally agitated. While it is not to be
disputed that the evils of the service
with the franchise vested exclusively,
were such as to annoy and justify a
demand for relief, and the adoption
of some measure that would at least
promise better conditions, yet there
were tho.-e who all along hesitated to
commend the two system proposition
as a certain means to the end so
The Argus confe:-ses to haye been
one of those who had doubts as to
the efficacy of such a course. While
freely condemning fhe nature of the
service furnished by the Central
Union company iu Bock Island and
the three cities generally for years.
The Argus could not in contemplat
ing the possible results, advocate the
independent movement ns affording
a sure means of overcoming the ex
isting difficulties. It was The Argus'
conviction all along that if the com
pany in the field could be made to
do its duty the people would in the
end be much better served than they
could be with the conflicting interests
of two companies to contend with.
If there is such a thing as an es
sentially exclusive monopoly, it is
the telephone, particularly in cities
of the size of Bock Island, Moline
and Davenport, and while it is un
fortunate that it should be so, the
fact might as well be met squarely.
The people of the three cities are at
this moment confronted by a condi
tion sustained by ample demonstra
tion. If there exists a remedy it i to
be found only in getting together and
agreeing to support solely and with
unanimity the company that furn
ishes the most satisfactory service.
Can the people themselves see their
own interests sufficiently clear to
adhere to such a policy?
. Swiss Mail Service.
Consular reports show that Switz
erland has- as good a postal service
as can be found anywhere. It has
about 16,000 postoffices and about 2,-
000 letter boxes, and it delivers mail
to the very tops of the Alps. The
postal service does many things that
our officials would not think of doing.
It acts as banker and" express com
pany for the people. It will collect
your bills for you and bring fhe
money to the house.
If you live in Switzerland and a
man owes you, say two dollars, all
you have to do is to send him a
bill for the amount in a sealed letter
with a word ortwo to the postofflce
on the outside of the envelope, and,
in addition, a 2-cent stamp. This
stamp pays the postofflce for its trou
ble in collecting, and delivering the
money to you. The charge is about
1 per cent of the amount.
Use of Submarine Boats.
Grtjat Britain is among the last of
the great powers to realize the value
of submarine vessels- in future war
fare. They have therefore ordered
five of them built at once. In this re
spect! Great Britain resembles many
people in our own country who, when
they feel sick, wait until the last
minute before seeking a remedy to
cure them. The majority of the peo
ple, however, always keep a bottle of
Hostetter's Stomach Bitters in their
medicine chest, and at the first sign
of disordered stomach take a few doses
with the result th it they always have
good health. This is an excellent plan
for you also. The Bitters will posi
tively cure headache, heartburn, sour
stomach, indigestion, dyspepsia; in
somnia, or nervousness. Try a bottle
and be convinced of its value.
DAILY SHORT STORY
Romance of Old Philadelphia
There is something attractive about
real romances, especially one that has
occurred many years ago. Perhaps it
is because the people of the past were
different from ourselves and more dif
ferent than we are from each other.
How different from that immense
city which today is spread over thou
sands of acres, whose streets are un
adorned except with colossal buildings
and whose people are engaged in the
mad rush for money! Then beautiful
trees lined her thoroughfares, her
houses were quaint little buildings, and
her Quaker population wore broad
brimmed hats, broad tailed coats and
Polly Pennell, nineteen years old,
was the daughter of a Philadelphia
Quaker father "the strictest sect a
Pharisee" and a Church of England
mother. Polly was pretty as a picture
and had hosts of admirers, all of whom
were sharply watched by her curmudg
eon father. . IIr most intimate friend
was, Rebecca Hamilton.: Kebecca was
not .to the taste, of old Pennell, she be
ing of the world worldly. She took a
fancy to Polly, however, and soon aft
er their first meeting one Sunday after
church she came down the street car
rying aloft a beaver hat, two feet on
the brim, looking for all the world like
a balloon Jib, leg o' mutton sleeves for
spinnakers, and gloves laced to the el
bows. The rest of her rig was a pro
fusion of tulle and India muslin. Meet
ing Polly, she swooped down upon her
and carried her off to dinner.
Polly was rescued by her Quaker at
tendants and received a severe ad
monition to shun the worldly creature.
But Releccn was as much to Polly's
taste as she was to Polly's parents
distaste. A high bred dame, she dis
dained conventionalities as only neces
sary for inferior people who did not
know how to behave themselves and
made her own rules. Within a week
after the rescue Polly had visited her
in her home. There she was taken into
dinner by a young Virginian, the very
antipodes of a Quaker, liamed Francis
Dulaney. His dress was far more ef
fective in Impressing a young girl than
the conventional black "steel pen Jack
et" of today a canary colored waist
coat embroidered with blooming red
silk roses, a claret colored coat (with
cuffs), flat brass buttons the size of a
modern individual butter plate, breech
es and stockings of the color of the
coat, buckles ou bis shoes and plenty
of lace about his throat. How could
any young girl resist a handsome fel
low in such attire? Polly certainly did
not resist him, for she fell in love with
him, and her love was returned. Iie
becca Hamilton fostered the courtship
not only for sympathy with the young
couple, but to score a point on the
Think of the broad brim hatted, coal
scoop coated old Pinned having for a
son-in-law a young man adorned like
Francis Dulaney! Fancy the scone
when these two costumes containing
the two men stood before each other
and the younger man. a perfect stran
ger to the older, asked for the hand of
his daughter! Of course he was re
fused. Could Quaker drab mate with
canary and claret color? One might as
well think of a daughter of a prophet
mating with a spangled circus rider.
The old man stood rigid, listening to
the young one's entreaties, then gave
a curt refusal, and Dulaney beat a sul
len retreat. Pinned sent for his daugh
ter. Instead of meeting an obedient
child he found a firm woman. She
told him that she had pledged herself
to marry Dulaney and would do so.
Pinned placed Polly under the care
of his sister, Patience, a woman more
austere, more Quakerly dressed, more
commanding, than her brother. Polly
was forbidden to leave the house unac
companied by her aunt, and her father
made preparations to take her to Eng
land. One crisp October morning in 1800
Pennell put on his broad brimmed hat,
took his long staff, with a silver head
as big as a dinner bell, and went down
town. The duenna went to her room to
put it in order. She had no sooner en
tered than the door was locked from
the outside. The family black servant
was locked iu the cellar. Then roily,
pale and excited, came downstairs and,
pausing a moment to bid farewell to
home, sallied forth, followed by her
maid. Under a large buttonwood tree,
standing on a corner, were Dulaney
and Miss Hamilton, with the Hamil
ton's tilbury. Entering the tilbury,
the party were driven to the home of
the Hamlltons. All the wedding ar
rangements had been completed. No
less a personage than the mayor of the
town performed the ceremony, and An
drew Hamilton gave away the bride.
When Mr. Pennell returned to his
home, he " found a gaping crowd of
broad brims before his house, attracted
by the screams of his sister and hJs
servant, who were demanding to be un
locked. Entering. -he found the house
abandoned by the child whom he had
striven to keep from mingling with the
sinful world. But, though he. consid
ered a canary colored walstcoast em
broidered with flowers the livery of Sa
tan, he did not consider forgiveness a
part of salvation. He never forgave
his daughter and died unreconciled.
Dulaney took his wife to Virginia,
that home of the iniquitous Cavaliers,
who, if in 1800 they had cut their hair,
were still sufficiently sinful to wear
powdered wigs. Thus the bride and
groom lived for awhile on Dulaney's
plantation and then went to live In
Rebecca Hamilton, who had taken so
Important a part in the elopement, mar
ried unhappily, and her divorce case
was one of the most important that
htve ever occurred In the Quaker City.
