"The house of representatives," says an exchange, "passed wltli ' virtual unanimity the "Cuban - relief bill, to which the democrats attached a provis ion .that: repeals the differential duties on refined sugar, said duties being the foundation of the sugar trust's exist ence; as well as its legalized license to plunder the American consumer. The republicans of the senate have failed not only to approve this provident measure in restraint of the most sordid and obnoxious of all trusts, but they do not even permit it to be considered, although it was known that there were more than enough votes to make It law. The republican majority refused to approve Jt solely because its ap provaV would knock the props from un der the sugar, trust. Then why talk of the president negotiating a treaty with Cuba looking to a solution of the question , when .it ,1s a hopeless task, and only:.suggested for the purpose of deceiving the voter in the pending con gressional campaign?" 1 When the republicans tell you- in their platforms or on the stump that they favor, this, that or the other law if they are re-elected, tell them they are talking through their Panamas. And to prove it, show them they have had for six -years the president, the senate and the house, 'and could have enacted any law the people demanded and their national ' platforms pro claimed. 'They do not want any legis lation that will benefit the people. All they want Is the vote of the dupes so they can continue to skin the public. The republican party has passed in the last six years every law the trusts, the monopolists, and ' protected Interests have desired. It has never passed a single act that made it easier for the wo'rkingman to make a living. But Its legislation has resulted in enabling the special few 'to tax the clothes off his back,- deny his' wife and children the necessary food , for their proper sus tenance, and put beyond the reach of any wage earner the possibility of an education for his posterity. : ; , , -A. striking evidence of the close affil iation of those persons , who are the beneficiaries of the, tariff, and their de termination to conceal from the public information to which. It is entitled, Is furnished by the lack of success which has attended, the efforts of Judge Griggs to secure a copy of the "Special Discount Sheet," issued by American exporters, says a correspondent, writ ing from Washington. While it is a well known fact that American manu facturers, In numerous instances, avail themselves of special ; privileges ( con ferred on them by the traiff to mulct American consumers, making them pay nearly double what is paid by foreign ers for the same articles, Judge Griggs believed that, the authoritative state ment of the Special , Discount Sheet would bring the facts home to Ameri can voters as would'nothing else. He, therefore, commissioned an employe' of. the democratic committee to obtain one.. Every effort to do so failed, and then a reward of $100 was offered for a copy, but so far without avail. It is also notable- that a nuinber of the lead ing newspapers of New York city re fused to insert the advertisement which the Judge desired to place in their columns at their regular adver tising rates, stating that they could not afford to antagonize a class of men ,who were extensive advertisers. This ground for refusal explains the numer ous misleading editorials which ap pear in these same papers and the fre quent perversion of facts in which they indulge. While . the committee has been unable to secure a copy of this particular sheet, it has procured a copy of the export price list, and, although . the 'discount sheet 'would show ' a' far greater difference in prices, some of those contained in this list are inter esting. . Wire nails, for instance, which sell in this country for $2.25 per keg, are sold to foreigners for' $1.30 per keg. Barbed wire, , which sells here for $3 per hundred pounds, sells abroad for $2.20 per hundred. Shovels, which sell here for $7.50 per dozen, gell there for $5.80 per dozen. - Fruit Jars are listed for sale abroad for 25 cents per dozen less; typewriters for $45 each, less than here for the same machine; tin plate for $1 per hundred pounds less, and so on. And it is known that discounts are allowed even from the prices here quoted. Judge Griggs re gards it as inconceivable ; that Ameri can consumers will be willing to con tinue paying these higher prices for the benefit of the foreign consumers once they realize the facts. "I am, sat isfied that the Americans are . paying 40-per cent : more for American made gods than are the foreigners," said the judge yesterday, "and I do not believe that they will be willing to continue so doing." . -; v KEAED ra PASSING Not long ago a New Yorker, well known for his convivial habits, sent a box of candy to a girl up town, and wrote pa his card the hackneyed senti ment: "Sweets to the Sweet." The next day he received a brief acknowl edgment which read: "T'anks to the tank." New York post. ' A farmer near Abilene, Kan, gave the following pedigree, of a calf to a prospective buyer: "His father gored a book agent to death, tossed a squire on top of the barn, and stood a lignt ninjr rod man on his head, , and his mother chased a female lecturer two miles one day. If that pedigree Isn't worth $4 you needn't take the calf," New Haven Courier and Journal. General Leonard Wood is not , likely to be appointed a member of the Pan ama canal commission, It is said, al though he much desires it. The rea son given Is that Mark Hanna is deter mined to oppose his preferment in all directions except that of regular army promotion, because he thinks that Wood was unfair to his dear friend Rathbone. Mr Hanna has been such a faithful supporter of President Roosevelt in all the principal measures of his administration that the president cannot afford to invite his antagonism in any mere personal matter such as an effort' to please his friend Wood. Hartford Times. . " It is claimed, the largest public school building in the world is to be built In the New York east side. It will afford accommodations for 3,915 children, who are to be instructed by 150 teach ers. 1 The building will be in the shape of a hollow square, with an. Immense court in the center and almost the whole of the first floor will be devoted to a playground. In the basement there are to be hot and cold" water baths, and bathing at frequent ipter vals will be made compulsory. Boys are to occupy one side of the building and girls the other. Meriden Journal. A Brooklyn Judge who was called upon to settle the difficulties between a young husband and wife, the latter having sued the former for abandon ment, gave the following free advice to the plaintiff : "Keep your husTand Jealous. Make his jealous and you will be happy. If he is jealous you will never need to enter, court again to sue' him for abandonment. The Jeal ous Inrsband is kind; the jealous hus band is faithful; the Jealous husband is loving. Keep your husband jeal ous." With such encomiums the green eyed monster will soon be in need of a new hat to accommodate the increas ing bulkiness of Ids head. Meriden Record. . i MR DOOLEY ON FIGHTING. "As I get on in years I . believe less in flghtin.' 'Tis aturr'ble thing to see th aged an' infirm swlngln away at each other. 'Tis so unscientific." I hate to think iv a man with wan leg in th' grave usin' th' other to thrip th' free foot iv a fellow-aged. I'm glad Bailey an'. Blv'ridge ar-re young men. What a scandal if Sinitor Cullon an' Sinitor Morgan shud miz it up! Wan iv th' things a man lams as he grows old is to dislike flghtin.' He dislikes annything he can't do as well as he cud. I'm that way. But I wasn't always so." No, sir. They was a time whin I'd fight at th' dhrop iv a hat, f'r money or marbles or pool checks, f'r th' good name 1 iv- -women or th' revarse, f'r political principals or unprincipled, politics, f'r th' gate receipts, f'r me religion, f'r th look iv th' thing, because th' i berkeeper heard what he said, because he whis pered to her, f r th' sacred theory that th' buildin's is higher in Chicago thin in New York, f'r th fun iv th' thing, an' f'r th' Fight'. That last's th' best iv all. A man that won't fight f'r th' fight itsilf is no rale fighter. I don't know what wud make me fight now adays. I know lots lv things that wud make me want to fight, but I've lamed to repress me desires. Me heart is full iv song, but I've lost me voice. In me dhreams I'm always punchin' somebody's head. I shall niver frgit th' night wliin I put Jeffries out iv th' business with wan well directed punch, an' me in me bare feet, too. " I can niver f'rgit it, f'r I fell out lv ben an' bumped me head agin th' rocker iv a chair. " But in me wakln' hour's I'm a man of valiant impulses and peace ful raysults. -In a fight I'd be like a deef mute in a debatin s'clety. But as I; said Hinnissy there was ;a day whln.th' lightest , wurrud was an in sult'. Nowadays I say to mesllf: Considher th' sooree. How can such a low blaggard. as that insult me? Jus' because some dhrunken wretch chooses to apply a foul epitaph to me, am I gdin' to dignify him by knockln' him 1 down in ;'th public sthreet, an' p'raps not, an' gettln. th' head beat off me? . No. sir. I will raymlmber me position - in th'. community. I will pass on with a smile iv bitter con tempt, i Maybe I'd betther run a lit tle. Dear me, why didn't I think to bring an ax' with me?'

The Cuban hymn is sung in every hamlet in. Cuba. It is called "Hinino de Bayamo." The name Is derived from the small town in Santiago prov ince where, the Cuban flag was first raised. It was written by a native. To the contest, O sons of Bayamo! From your country her blessings re ceive; . A patriot's death fear ye never; Higher honor man could not achieve. Life in chains is galling to freemen; The portion of craven and slave; The voice of the angel of freedom Is calling to those who are brave. 1 Fear ye not the wrath of Ibersl! . Like all tyrants, she's coward at heart; -, . Cuba's valor will surely o'erwhelm her; Lo. her empire and prestige depart! The might of her ages is waning, ' Crumbles her pride and her power! Hark to the call of freedom: i "To arms, all ye hosts 'tis the nouri" ; - , Be the night ever blessed remembered, When at Yara the tocsin of glee, The notes of the war trumpet sound ed i . And the Cubans were vowed to be free. .V.;-" Let the star be not dimmed in Its glory ' , Worked, In gold' by the fair of the -.v land.!;-;' f . Beneath It forever and ever Loyal Cubans together will stand! English version by Frederic J. Has- kin. ' ST. SWITHIN IS BLAMED It WTas Rainy and it Will Rain for Thirtyone . Days More. St. S within is to blame for the whole of it, as any weatherwise person who knows of all the twists and cranks of prophecy will agree. The old adage In verse is: . ' . . -.. ' "St. Swlthin's day if it be fair For forty days 'twill rain no malr. St. Swlthin's day If it doth rain, For forty days it will remain. , It describes the present situation of the weather completely. St. Swlth in's day was Tuesday July 15, and it rained that day, hard showers pre vailing in the afternoon. It has rained every day more or less, probably more, and Wednesday was another. Re ally it began to look just after lunch as if the skies were to be bright, but between 2 and , 3 there wa9 a rattling shower, heavy rain, lightning, thunder, and, in the south part of the city, hall. The afternoon was muggy and close after the shower,; and if the St Swlth in's day prophecy Is to come true In all respects it must continue to rain more or less each day for thirty-three days more. . , ' Hard luck. Speaking of St Swithln, he was born in Winchester, England, about soo, and died about 862., He was bishop of Winchester and was noted for many'eu es performed after death, possibly -water cures; For some unknown reason St Swithln has, been as sociated In- the: popular ' mind "with drunkenness, but. why any saint whose chief merit concerned the precipitation of so much, water should have been chosen as the" patron saint of drunken ness is one of the things that no fellow can find out. -: , For the purpose of.' comparison the following letter about " Julys and wet weather is given: - To the Editor of the Courant: It may Interest your many readers to compare the .present July with oth ers, as regards 1 rainfall. The highest rainfall since 1872 was In July, 1897. when 15.76 rinches of rain fell,, 9.32 inches of whichufell July 12, 13 and 14. The rainfall this year In July, up to the 22d, was 5.30 Inches. Other years the July rainfall was: 1872. 5.48 Inches; 1888, 7.03; 1885, UOS; 1885, 10:97; 1890. 5.25; 1899, 7.82.
