I ESTABLISHED 1856.)
J HZ PEOPLE'S PFESS (FOUNDED-1827.) J. B. WHITAKER, Jr., Editor and Manager. A Blue Mark here is to call attention the date to which your subscription is paid. Remittances are desired from those in ar rears. It is intimated that Russell will strike a'biff snag when he attempts to eject Caldwell from the Railroad Commission. Both are floppers, how ever, and there may be some mind changing that will adjust matttrs without a fracas. The heartless butcher, Weyler, at the head ol the Spanish army, would be an added incentive to American sailors and soldiers to strike hard and telling blows against a nation that would so honor a crnel tyrant, with a record of unsurpassed brutal ity. The rumor has been again revived and again denied that the Tobacco Trust has captured a big St. Louis manufacturing concern. Can't the Trust be induced to declare an arm istice until we get through with Spain? One big evil at the time is sufficient. A Madrid dispatch says: "All the Spaniards are supremely confident, and declare that the Spanish army will march from Florida to Washing ton and capture the capitol, while the Spanish fleet will coal at Key West." It will not take long after war has been declared to make sadder and wiser men of the puddin' heads that are induleriner in such fool talk as this. Caldwell broke into the Railroad Commission office, but he finds the door wide open to him to get out. The same man who encouraged him to break in now invites him to 6tep out and intimates that if he doesn't come out he will be put out. Cald well acts as if he will wait to be iorced out. We guess he will have to go, as much as he may dislike to be ruthlessly thrown from this cushioned seat at a bountifully supplied pie counter. Russell Is boss and the Supreme Court says his actions in the removal of Railroad Commission ers are not reviewable by the Courts and hence he has carte blanche to oust the fellows that refuse to dance when he pulls the string. It appears very probable that war will soon broduce an increase of the tax upon manufactured tobacco We notice that the Ways and Means Committee of Congress has already been at work devising plans for raising a war revenue, and it is said that a majority of the Committee has agreed uoon a plan that will raise more than one hundred million dollars additional revenue annually, which is thus distributed: An addi tional tax on beer of $1 per barrel, estimated to yield S35.UUU.UUU, a bank stamp tax on the lines of the law ol 1866, estimated to yield $30,000,000; a duty of 3 cents per pound on conee and 1U cents per pound on tea, and a like amount of internal tax oh stocks of coffee and tea on hand in the United States, estimated to yield $28,000,000; additional tax on tobacco, expected to yield $15,000,000. The commit tee also agreed to authorize the issuing of $50,000,000 bonds. These . bonds are to be offered for sale at all postomces in the United (States in amounts of $50 each, making a great popular loan to be absorbed by the people. WAR STILL NEARER. The war cloud hangs heavier and more threatening this morning than at any period since the opening of the controversy between the United States and Spain. At an early nour tnis morning both Houses of Congress reached an agreement, adopting by a vote of 42 to 35 in the Senate and 320 to 6 in the House the resolutions previously adopted by the Senate with the omission of the clause recognizing u.e independence of the existing Cuban republic. The resolutions mean that Spain must at once voluntarily surrender Cuba or she will be compelled to do so by the armed forces of the United States; that Cuba must be free and independent and that the United States will not exercise sovereignty over the island except for the pacifi cation thereof. " "All of this means' war unless Spain yields to the demands of the United States. . After the President signs the reso lotions, which he will piobably do today, the ultimatum will be pre sented to Spain and her answer will be eagerly awaited. The resolutions as finally agreed to by Congress are as follows : . "Joint Resolution for tne recogni - tion of the independence of the people of Cnba, demanding that the gov ernment of Spain relinquish its au thority and governmentin the island of Cuba, and withdraw its land and naval forces from Cuba and Cuban waters, and directing the President of the United States to use the land and naval forces of the United States to carry these resolutions into effect. - "Whereas, the abhorred condi tions which have existed for more than three years in the Island of Cuba, so near our own borders, have shocked the moral sense of the people of the United States; have been a dis grace to Christian civilization,- cal- minating, as they have,' in the destruction of a United States battle ship, with two hundred and sixty six t -;ffirpr nnd crew, while on a friendly visit in the harbor 01 Ilabana; ana cannot iougr u en dured, as has been set forth by the President of the United States in his message to Congress of April 11, 1898, upon which the action ol Con gress was invited : therefore, "Resolved: First That the people of the island of Cuba are, and of right ought to be, free and inde- "Second That ii is the duty of the United States to demand, and the government of the Lnitetl blares tioes hereby demand, that the gov w.ment ol Soain at once relinquish its authority and government in the :.,ir,,1 -f r'nhrt. nnd withdraw its land and naval torces from Cuba and "Third That the President of the TtnitoH Si-ntPH he. and he hereby H, diroctedand empowered to use the lnnrl nnd naval forces of the United States, and to call into the actual service of the United States the militia of the several States, to u r.vtnr.i- amnv be necessary to carry these resolutions into effect. "Fourth Tnat tne umteu olulcb hereby disclaim any disposition or ntention to exercise eovereisu. urisdiction, or control over tne saiu land, except lor tne pacinc.auou thereof, and asserts its determina tion, when tnat is accompiitfueu, eave the government and control oi the island to its people." ACTION THE WORD. They say it doesn't pay to grieve over spilt miiK, duc ie may ue wen enough to bear in mind that if the ... i . i ii Democratic policy of recognizing the belligerency of the Gubans had pre vailed the war with Spain, now im minent, might have been averted and Cuban independence achieved by the Cubans. Instead, the United States has been, practically, aiding the Spanish, who have been free to secure supplies and munitions of war in this country, wLile the insurgents have been denied this privilege. It. is set forth in the report of the Senate Foreign Relation Committee that the policing of the seas by the United States in favor of Spain has cost this government more than two million dollars. With an equal showing at the hands of this country, Cuba would have achieved her independ ence before this time, the Maine crime probably would not have occurred and a war cloud would'not be hang ing over the United States. But this was not done, and we must deal with the situation as it is and action is the word that fits the case. SPAIN AS A SEA POWER. "Would Have But Little Show With United. Stales. From the Atlanta Journal.l If Spain should prove efftctive on the sea now, she would reverse her record for more than three hundred years. Aot since the battle oi iepanto, when joined with the Venetians and Genoese, she overcame the Turkish fleet, has Spain won a fight with any other nation at sea. It has been three hundred and ten years since Francis Drake annihila ted what the storm had left of the Invincible Armada. Nelson struck Spain another terrific blow when he met the combined Spanish and French fleets at Trafalgar. Since that time there have been several striking instances of Spanish incom petency in naval warfare, the most notable being that which was shown in her expedition against Peru in 18G6, on account of alleged mis treatment of some Spanish subjects. The Spanish squadron on that ex pedition consisted of seven vessels, mounting twenty seven guns, and to oppose it the Peruvians borrowed three craft from Ghili, one a vessel carrying forty-two smooth bbres, one a small one-gun monitor, and the third a diminutive Merrimac, carrying two guns. The result of the engagement was the utter dis comfiture of the Spaniards. In comparing the relative strength of our navy wit"i that of Spain the difference between the men in the ships of the two nations is a big factor to be taken into the account. As we have also an advantage in the number and power of ships, it will be seen that in naval engagement with us Spain would have little show. Spain Mast Recede. Indianapolis News. If there is any possibility of in fluencing Spain in the direction of peace, it should be made the most of. But there can be no peace unless Spain recedes from her present posi tion. The feeling in "the United States is far removed from the jingo spirit. The American people are profoundly convinced that the time is come for Spanish rule in Cuba to cease. They are tired of the con fusion and anarchy which have pre vailed in that island for years, and which they believe will continue to prevail as long as Spanish sovereign ty is maintained. Unless, therefore, Spain is prepared to withdraw from Cuba, it will be useless for the pope or anyone else to attempt mediation between the two powers. . The Record Up to Date. Jacksonville Times-Union. Meantime, we have made a splen did record by the unanimity and the strength we have shown to the world. It has been proved that before a national foe there are no sections or political factions in this country; that we have within our selves all the necessary material for supporting war on the grandest scale; that we can improvise a modern navy as quickly as we re peatedly . provided one of the old pattern, and that we are impervious to conquest or spoliation. MaJ. Gen. Fitzhugh Lee. Washington Dispatch, 16tb: Con sul General Fitzhugh Lee left for Richmond this evening to spend Sun day with his family. Before leaving this city he had a' long conference with Secretary of War Alger, and It was arranged that General Lee should be commissioned a major general in tbe United States Army, and be placed In command of a division of the army for the Invasion of Cuba.

' The whole country is delighted that General Fitzhugh Lee reached Key West in safety. There were well-founded apprehensions tnac nis life was in peril during the latter part of his stay m Havana ana tne an nouncement of his embarkation in sftfetv on one of our ships was re ceived with a leeiingot renei tnrougn out the United States. General Lee is probably the most popular man in the country today. This is not because he is a Democrat, not because he is a southerner, not because he is one of the most genial of gentlemen, but because he has proved himself a vigilant, efficient aDd fearless guardian of the rights and honors of his country. During the trying period through which General Lee has jaet passed as our representative in Cuba it required a man to fetand as firm as he did, and to conduct himself so nobly in all respects. General Lee rose to the full measure of his duty and respon sibilitv. He won the lasting admira tion and gratitude of the people of the United States without regard to section or party. Situation on tbe Yukoe. St. Louis Globe-Democrat. Extravagant predictions as to the amount of gold that will come this spring from the Klondike region have subsided to an estimate of about $10,000,000, and this may be beyond the mark. The yield will be J a disappointment. Colorado alone produces twice as much gold in one year. Travels over the winter trails to Dawson City have been more difficult than was supposed, and hundreds fcave up in despair, sold their outfits and returned home. The tide of pilgrims to Alaska has greatly declined. In another month the ice will run out of the Yukon, and the trip to Dawson may then be made by steamer. On the whole, the rush thua far has entailed more toil and hardship than the results in sight justify. It will require a yield o! $10,000 000 this season to cover th6 cost of getting it, to say nothing of the tremendous physical struggle of the argonauts, some of whom fell by disease in the cheerless arctic wastes. Neaily all reports agree that gold is widely distributed in Alaska, but is exceptionally hard to get at, and also uncertain in quanti ty and location. POINTED PARAGRAPHS Chicago News.

A regular pestiferous, ox eyed daisy at that? Now he is about to break into the Railroad Commission office again, and upset Chairman his chairman Caldwell. He seems shocked that Chairman Caldwell does not take in the full force of the opinion of a majority or Senator Butler s "non partisan" court to the effect that the Governor is monarch of all he surveys, so far as the Railroad Com mission is concerned. The Governor is also shocked that Mr. Caldwell found himself not so anxious as he once thought he might be to turn loose a good thing when he gets hold of it, even at tbe command of the Governor to do so Tbe Hero of tbe Hour. From the Atlanta Journal. Seldom in the history of country bas any man received this such evidences of popular favor as recentlv .been showered upon have Fitz hugh Lee.

Indianapolis News. Some of the Washington cor respondents are making a great pother about the possibility that this country may become liable for the bonds issued by Spain with Cuban revenue for security. But nations have a right to go to war when they please, and when they do go to war, each has a right to attack the other whenever an opening offers And if in our war with Spain Spanish securities should suffer, the holders of those bonds would certainly have no recourse against the United States The bonds are Spanish bonds, for which Spain will be liable alter the loss of Cuba quite as truly as she is now. If her wretched government seem to make it desira ble or necessary for us to recognize the independence of the people whom she has oppressed for so long, it is hard to see how that act would make us indorsers of the Spanish securities.

The crime of February 15 and it stands forth as the gigantic crime of the century which is closing is the issue which concerns this country first and foremost in its dealings with the Spanish government. It overtops all else; it means more to Americans than the independence of any of Spain's colonies, than any charity-laden policy in behalf of the victims of Spanish cruelty and cowardice. Any attempt to shelve it in a lasting disgrace, and further efiort to deal with the subject in terms which appeal to Spanish hon esty and justice and conscience is criminal folly. Pushing Ahead.

Dud & (Jo's Wetkly Uetiew of Trade tolay says: The rueanion of Congress re garding Spun is cot in doubt, but tbe form of declaration at this hour is in question. Hie rYrs'dect s message has been accepted as a strong state ment of the situation, and the oues- ou in Congress is whether it will, without chaDge, adopt his proposa'. Preparations for war continue as if it were inevitable. There is some hin drance in business, and yet the volume of payments through clearing houses is still 1- 9 per cent, larger than last year, and outside New York about 2 per cent, larger than in 1892, though speculative stagnation here makes tbe aggregate lower. The industries are doing well, because they have enor mous orders, taken in February and March or earlier, which ensures opera tions for periods varying from a fort night to several months. The volume of legitimate business Is enormous, and meanwhile failures are remarkably small; for the week they have been 254 in the United States against 207 last year; and 18 in Canada against 30 last year. Only Trained Men Needed. Cleveland Leader. The indic ations are etrongrthat the government of the Uuited Stutts will make a mistake if it shall accept for service against Spain in the event o war any but trained Holdiers. The country has at least 230,000 men of that class, within the limits of mili tary age J-ome 27,000 are in the regular army, and as many more, no doubt, have served in that fine little body of troops. About 110,000 are active members of National Guard oraraniz itions, and there must be luO.OOO who have retired from the drilled and armed militia. Allowing for deductions which ought to be made on accouut of men who, fo various reasoas, will not be asked or expected to enlist, there should re main 230,000 more or less thorough ly trained soldiers. That number ought to be more than sufheient, The war promises, if it comes, to short and decisive. Notice. By virtne of a mortgage deed executed to R. W. Grubbs by Stniuel Waggoner and wife.

Yours for Business, F- M. FOBEfTS, ABLEST GERMAN JOURNALIST IN U. S. Preetorious of the vWstliehc Post Uses PAINE'S CELERY COMPOUND. The St. Louis Westliche l'ost is the I leading German daily of the Missis--sippt valley, and one of the few great German newspapers in the United States. Established in 1837, it soon passed into the hands of Dr. Emil Preetorius and the Hon. Carl Schurz. For 40 years the Westliche Post has shown the most effective devotion to honors able and progressive ideas. Edward Preetorius, business manager an 1 treasurer, is a man of distinction throughout the South west, and is known to many thous. ands in other portions of the countrv tor his broad business methods, and for the commanding influence of his journal in national, state and city politics. Mr. Preetorius is an indefatigable worker. Subjected by his profession to unusual business cares, overwork and sudden demands upon his nerv-. ous strength, bis personal experience and his estimate of Paine's celery compound must have exceptional weight, especially with braiu work- ers, and men and womau whose nerves are incessantly called oa, as if they were iron or steel, and not the most sensitive parts of the body. Mr. Preetorius' letter, given below, shows his confidence in America's greatest remedy. St Louis. Jan. 13, 1893. Messrs.

I can certainly recommend it with out hesitation to all those ia need of such a reconstraetant of the neivous system. Yours truly. Edward L Preetorius. The relative merit and t-flicieDcy of Paine's celery compound, in comi parison with all other remedies for making people well, is cle-trly shown in the intelligent character and re sponsible standing of the people who today rely on it to cure insomnia, nervous debility, persistent head aches and a rundown condition. Its power of rapidly repairing the tissues and cleansing the blood makes Paine's celery compound the great saver of life that it is. It brings just the needed nutriment to the weakened nerve tissues all over the body, and increases the volume of healthy blood, so that a breakdown of some vital part ia averted. The story of the discovery and un paralleled success of I'aine's celery compound is the story of a high purpose steadfastly followed, the final work of the lifelong study of the neivous svstem iu health and disease by Prof. El ward E. Phelps, 1 M. D., LL 11 , of the Dartmouth medical faculty. In this greatest of all remedies there is hope for every person diss tressed by symptoms of dyspepsia, impure blood, failing vigor or low nervous condition. Land Sale.
