Kentucky.. Louisiana . Malee Cleveland's Sham Americanism. We have been hearing a good deal lately about the "stalwart American ism" of the present Democratic ad ministration. We are continually called upon to admire the "patriotic attitude" of President Cleveland and Secretary Ulney. Juet us examine this "patriotic attitude." Let us look into this "sfalwart Americanism." In the Transvaal Kepubiic, in South Africa, a number of Americans have been arrested for an alleged plot against the Boer government They are threatened with fines, con fiscation of property, and possibly long imprisonment. Some have been released on bail: others are still in jail. Nothing has yet been proved against any of these men; if they were plotting, their plots were futile. They committed no acts of violence atrainst the Boer government. No shots were fired in Johannesburg. Yet some of them are in solitary con finement, others under heavy bail bonds, many threatened with loss of property and long imprisonment, and all to be tried before a Boer court, with whose language, laws, and usages they are utterly unfamiliar. In the Transvaal Republic, in South Africa, some eight hundred Englishmen, with arms in their hands, invaded a peaceful people. With magazine rifles and machine guns, they fired upon the Boers. They killed some of them, and woun ded others. These Englishmen were overpowered and arrested. But on the demand of the English govern ment they were at once paroled, marched to the frontier, and there turned over to the English authori ties. Dr. Jameson and his officers are now upon the sea they sailed on the twentieth of January for Eng land, where he and his men are to be tried before the English courts and by the English laws. It is already common talk, according to our Lon don correspondent, that the trial will be a farce. ' Now what have those two "stalwart Americans," President Cleveland and Secretary OIney, done at this junc ture? Have they demanded, as Eng land did, that the American citizens now in jail at Johannesburg be turn ed over to the United States for trial T No all that has been done is for secretary OIney plaintively to "re quest Great Britain to protect Amer ican interests in the Transvaal. Since then President Cleveland and Secretary OIney have done nothing in the matter at all. Now we would like to ask Mr. Cleveland and his man OIney if the life and property of an American are not as sacred as those of an English man? Waiving all question of what the Americans may have done, the fact remains that Jameson and his English followers did much-more. Yet they have been turned over to the English authorities. Why have not the Americans been turned over to our Consular agent, to be tried by the courts of their own country? Why should England be favored in this matter? Is an Englishman bet ter than an American in the eyes of President Cleveland and his man Ol ney? If they do not think so, why have they not demanded what the English government did the custo dy of its imprisoned subjects? We think that President Cleveland and his man OIney are too busy with their sheet-iron thunder threats of war and manufacturing presidential booms out of the griefs of greaser re publics to pay any attention to Americans restrained of their liberty in foreign lands. If Salisbury and Chamberlain succeeded in getting JarSeson and his companions out of the Boer grasp and under English law, why did not Cleveland and OI ney succeed in obtaining as much for the restrained Americans? But they did not even try. If harm shall come to these Americans, it will be due to the criminal negligence of President Cleveland and Secretary OIney. The kind of "stalwart Amer icanism", that neglects imprisoned Americans abroad to work up war- scare presidential booms at home is not to our liking. Shame upon such sham Americanism. The Argonaut. "Annie Laurie," of the San Fran- sisco Examiner, is in El Paso, and will witness the prize fights in her journalistic capacity. Comes by It Honestly. The hatred of Col. Thomas Fitch, the orator and lawyer, for the British or anvthiru? that 'savors of the British, is a sentiment handed down by his ancestor, Gov. Thomas Fitch of Connecticut, the only American born governor of colonial tunes. The views, therefore, entertained by our own Thomas Fitch are not the result of an outburst of indigna tion at the recent bulldozing tactics of John Bull, but have been trans mitted in the Fitch blood for many fenerations, as the following from the New York Journal explains: The only American born governor of the time of the French and In dian war Thomas Fitch, governor of Connecticut, who resided at Nor- walk. He and his councillors raised a regiment of which the eldest son of the governor, Thomas Fitch, was elected colonel. The women of the colony had contributed their share toward the equipment of the regiment by weav ing and making the coats of the warriors and coloring them with home-made dyes. This homely uni form was completed by the sisters and sweethearts of the men, who stuck turkey tail feathers in the hats by way of distinction or may hap ornament. This same simple feather has become immortalized and will forever be notable in the annals of this country. For when the regiment, headed by young Fitch, rode up the main road beside the river to report to the command er-in-chief at his headquarters in the "Old Mansion," the ridiculous ap pearance presented ' by the raw troops, who were mounted on sorry looking nags (the best their farms afforded) prompted the English Burgeon, Richard Schuchbury by name, who seated by the well back of the "Old Mansion," to write the squib: - "Yankee Doodle came to town, Kidina on a pony ; Stuck a feather ia his hat And called it 'macaroui'.'' 1 he last word was synonymous with our word "dude," and was used at the time to express contempt. The words fitted the well known air of "Lucy Locket Lost Her Pocket," and the jingle and the air caught the fancy of the troops. Thus the jibe, instead of provoking the Yan kee regiment, was most cleverly turned by them into a compliment to their unique appearance, and the English officers soon found that that they had no braver men under their command than the Connecti cut regiment, with Thomas Fitch, the oriidnal "Yankee Doodle," at their head. Phenix (daily) Republican. Another Reservoir Enterprise. In the location of the new reser voir site on the Yerde river is -con cealed one of the most meritorious and important irrigation schemes that ever has been brought into public notice in the Southwest The dam is projected to be placed across the Yerde at a point 4,700 feet above the junction of the stream with the Salt. . Though the croppings of bedrock within which the stream flows are but 200 feet apart, the length of the top line at the height of 125 feet is placed at 1,600 feet, the abutments for the en tire distance of the slope being on the best possible foundation. It is from this point that the rock was secured for the construction of the Arizona canal headgates. In capacity the basin would hold enough water to furnish from one filling a continuous flow of 10,000 miner's inches and its location at the very head of the valley, less than thirty miles from Phenix, is one that would insure a minimum of of waste in transfer to the great canals that head but a mile or so be low. As to quantity of flow, the Yerde each winter would more than fill to or three such reservoirs. In point of safety, there are spill-ways to be secured to either side of ample size to forever insure the passage of the greatest floods that might ma terialize. As for the usefulness of the construction, there much might be said. Not only would it serve to impound a flow for the dry summer months, but through it would be cov ered high lying mesa lands, now above the reach of ordinary gravity canals, and from its fall could be secured electric power ..sufficient to turn every wheel within the valley, Phenix Republican. Tbe Demlng- Railroad. Major Kirkland, an Ohio capital ist, passed through Albuquerque, go ing: east directly from the City of Mexico. To the Albuquerque Citi zen's representative he said substan tially as follows: Yes, I have a little news for you. I would be glad if you would state for the information of the Deming people and others, that before I left the City of Mexico the necessary pa pers were executed, and the contract closed that insures the building of one hundred miles of the railroad from Doming south along the east ern slope of the Sierra Madre. It will be constructed by an Ohio syn dicate, and the Mexican government has granted them a subsidy of $15, 000 a mile. The road will follow the line of the John W. Young proposed road to Palomas, will pass by lake Guzman and by the 400,000-acre cat tle ranch of Geo. B. Hearst. It will keep as close as possible to the rich mining districts of the Sierra Madre. 148 Republican Doctrine. American importers brought into the United States from Great Britain alone, during the year 1895, nearly $32250,000 of woolen goods. Every dollars worth of ,these woolen goods could, and should have been manufactured in the United States, giving wages to American labor, profit to American capital, and An, enlarged home market to American wool. Under a protective tariff, these thirty-two and a quarter millions of British woolens would have been manufactured on American soil. What American industry espe cially needs at the present time is a system of tariff protection that will put a stop to excessive importations of foreign made goods. Better for American wage-workers and capitalists that the wages and profits should be in the pockets of Americans than in the pockets of foreigners. Every pound of foreign wool im ported helps to depreciate the price of .the home grown product, and to enrich foreign wool growers at the expense of our own people. American products for the Ameri can people, grown on American soil and manufactured by American workingmen; that's the republican doctrine. Albuquerque (daily) Citi zen. , XN An luiriy rioneer. Uncle Bob Groom, one of the ear liest pioneers of Arizona, is in the city from his mines of Castle creek, Uncle Bob came to the territory in '63 and is one of the real Hassayam- pers. During the thirty-nve years of his life spent in Arizona, Mr. lj roo in lias made several mining sales and has always followed min ing. He tells of Jack Hint on who came near discovering the great mineral deposit on Rich Hill. An old chief had become attached to Hinton and he took him to the foot of the moun tain when he Baud, i am old, my sight is failing me, but this is near the place. LaterJack Swilling, and a. .Mexi can did find the rich deposit of some thing like f 125,000 in gold that lay on the mountain top, in virgin pur ity. The old Indian was right and he intended to show the rich metal to his friend. Uncle Bob Groom was in'48 a real estate man in Chicago but in 1850 he went to California, since which time he has led the life of an honest miner in the West. While some what enfeebled and his eyesight dimmed, the old gentleman yet does much work in developing his claims and he is known to every pioneer in the . territory. Phenix (daily) Ga zette. Threw Away His Canes. Mr. D. Wiley, ex-postmaster, Black Creek, N. Y., was so badly afflicted with rheumatism that he was only able to hobble around with canes, and even then it caused him great pain. After using Chamberlain's Pain Balm he was so much improved that he threw away his canes. He says this liniment did him more good than all other medicines and treatment put together.

A fire at Phenix, Feb. 10, destroy ed the property of Mrs. Herrick, valued at $2,500. The treasury gold at the close of business Feb. 10, was $51,942,725; withdrawals today, $933,300. The telegraph sajs, twelve hun dred troops sailed for Cuba on the 9th inst., 2,300 men will sail on the 10th and 200 more on Friday the 14th instant. The North German Lloyd steamer Havel, with the body of Runyon, the late embassador for the United States to Germany on board, sailed for New York Feb. 10. The republican congressional con vention which met at Temple, Tex., and elected delegates to the St. Louis convention, passed resolutions favoring Reed for president. At a meeting of the radical party of the house of commons on the 12th inst., it was decided to support the general principle of arbitration in any differences arising between Great Britain and the United States. Feb. 11 the president sent the fol lowing nominations to the senate: Wm. Woodville of Eockhill, Md, to be assistant secretary of state; Casper N. Morrison of Missouri, to be judge advocate with the rank of major. James Lawler of Houstin, Tex., selected as the final stakeholder in the Maher-Fitzsimmons fight, has wired Dan Stuart that he has not received a cent of the stake money, and that he will not leave for El Paso until he does. A dispatch from Los Angeles says, the supreme court has affirmed the judgment of the superior court con victing "Kid" Thompson of the crime of wrecking the Southern Pa cific passenger train at Roscoe, twg years ago, in which the engineer and a tramp were killed. A telegram from Rochester, N. Y., says, a wreck occurred at Macedón Swamp, near Fairport, between two extra freights, killing Fred Hosford, fireman; Thomas Welch, engineer, and injuring William Guldenfh, breakman, fatally, and Daniel Wil son breakman, slightly. United States Minister Terrell is using his influence with the Turkish government in order to procure necessary escorts and protection for Miss Clara Barto, president of the American Red Cross society, and her assistants, while they are distribut ing relief to suffering Armenians. It is announced from a good source that following the advice of the United States, Venezuela has practically decided to send a reprer sentativeto London, -with power to open direct negotiations with the government of Great Britain for the settlement of the boundary dispute. President Kruger has notified Sir Hercules Robinson, governor of Cape Colony, that he is willing to visit England according to the sugges-- tion of Mr. Joseph Chamberlain, provided the subjects of the pro posed conference between himself and Mr. Chamberlain are definitely specified beforehand. A Berlin dispatch of Feb. 10 says, the first practical use of Rotgens photography was made today, Through the use oi the camera, a needle that had been swallowed was located in the young woman's stom ach. The operation was performed, the cause of the suffering removed and the patient will recover. The Birmingham Jfost, which is the organ of Chamberlain, the colo nial secretary, declares that the whole relationship of the crown to the Chartered South African com pany may be revised and that steps have been taken that no future ad ministrator of the company shall be in a position to repeat tbe .Jameson raid. In regard to the large order for heavy steel rails recently placed by the Denver & Rio Grande company, it is stated in official circles that this material is to be used in changing the New Mexico division of, the. road from a narrow to standard gauge, and extending the line to Al buquerque. Preparations for this work have been going on by the company or .some time past. , February 16, Mrs. Mary E. Lease made her debute into the minis terial profession and :henceforth ber literary preffx will be Reverend in stead of Colonel. Last Sunday she preached in the Central Church of Christ, Wichita, Kan., and it is thought that she may be offered its pastorate, which is vacant. She promises to skin the "wolves" in the church when she gets in .and says there are many .there. It is surmised that, extensive oper ations will soon be commenced against the insurgents. Horses for infantry soldiers are arriving and the work of teaching the soldiers to ride is being -continued from morn ing till night. The main object in mounting infantrymen is to enable them to travel longer distances and with greater speed than -heretofore, the advantage of the insurgents in this respect having been -the .most marked feature of he insurrection up to the present. . The police are inclined to believe there is a stranger in San Francisco whose mania is to equal the record of London's notorious "Jack the Ripper," who within a year mur dered so many fallen women. With in the last few days a young girl on Morton street has been strangled to death by an unknown assassin, and several other women in the same vicinity have been beaten, stabbed and strangled, in each of the latter cases the assailant escaping without leaving a tracer by which he could be detected. Advices from Honolulu says that unless Secretary OIney apologizes for the actions of Minister Willis that official may be given his pass port soon. The trouble all grew out of an invitation issued by the Ha waiian . Foreign Office to .the di plomats to participate in the national holiday of Jan. 17, the anniversary of the over throw of the monarchy, Willis refused to take part in the celebration, on the ground that President Cleveland did not approve the manner in which the monarchy was overt hrown. l e H.

Hartman, of Tunnelton, West Va., has been subject to att acks of colic about once a year, and would have to call a doctor and then suffer for about twelve hours as much as some do when they die. He was taken recently just the same as at other times, anl onaltided to trv Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Rem edy. He says: "I took one dose of it and it gave me relief in five min utes.
