J. F. WALLACE, Publisher. WINSLOW, ARIZONA. CONSOLATION. They’ve grown to be men and women, Those little boys and girls— Whose cheeks were dirty and dimpled, Whose hair was in tangled curls; "Who had always a frolic for papa, Tor mamma a squeeze and a kiss, They have lost their childish affection— Their loving caresses we miss. They are leaving home on the morrow. To make their own way through life; And father and mother are grieving— The parting cuts like a knife. They form new friendships with pleasure, The parting they do not mind. For partings are always most grievous To those who are left behind. Soon the sorrowful days will be over; The grieving of parents will cease. For the angel of death will have pity And offer them sweet release. With pleasure they’ll start on their jour ney; The parting they'll never mind. For the ones who go are much happier Than friends who are left behind. —Sunie Mar, in Banner of Gold. | THE OLD MAN IN THE | | LINEN DUSTER | % By HIKiII PKXDEXTER. “ 'fit* W -7IY- W W W 'J -71 i* '/ifc 'M j r ou ever miss the old 1 J life?” he asked, as the three of us sat in my Greene street home sipping hot scotch and respimrng old yarns. - Jim had reference to my leaving the force, but I could in all honesty answer: “Not as much as you would imagine. Although lam no longer on the pay roll, I yet have my diversions. And really some of the most peculiar eaSes I ever happened upon have come to me since resigning.” “Such as the spotted bull dog?’’ suggested Kenton. “Well, j-es,” I responded. “That was unique, but devoid of all ugliness; no brutal features, 3 T ou know. It was a pretty enigma, and I wish all crim inal problems were resulting in as little harm.” “Do jou ever run across any cases as complicated as those set down bj' Doyle in his Sherlock Holmes stories?” asked Jim, refilling his pipe. “No and 3'es,” I answered. “I have known o£ some extremelj' puzzling affairs that balked all efforts of so lution, affairs seeminglj' blind, jet made clear by a trifle. But I have never believed in this deduction the or3 r . DojTe is a brilliant man to in vent such deductions, but, of course, he works backward. If a man eould possess the quick intuition of his Holmes he eould make extremelj' clever guesses, but in the long run w r ould be completely astraj r by his very acumen. ■ It wouldn’t do in real life to put down ever3' sunburst man as coming from India or every worn sleeve as belonging to a t3’pewriter.” “Is there an3' truth in this sporad ic, Dr. Jekji-Mr. Hjde business?” in quired Kenton. “A little,” I said, running over in my mind the different crimes and their perpetrators. “Did I ever tell you about the old man in the linen duster?” “No,” both replied. “Let’s have it.” “It began like this: Back in the days when Jim Fisk was commodore of the Fall River steamboats I had oc casion to go to Newport. Completing mj r business there I took passage for , New York in the same boat I had come down on. “Early in the morning I was up to see the sunrise, it being a fad of mine when afloat. As quite a number of us were chatting near the rail on the port side there was considerable of a splash in the water below and a deck hand cried out: ‘Man overboard!’ ‘There he is,’ one man cried, pointing excitedh'. They were reversing the engines meanwhile. “ ‘He acts queer,’, muttered some one at m3' left. Then he saw the reason for it. For, as the sun’s first shaft struck the w'ater the man rolled over and assumed an almost upright position, while a ra3' of light flashed across his face, revealing a dark red discoloration. ‘He’s been shot through the head!’ cried a deck hand below, who was in a better position to see. “The right arm of the corpse was * now flung upright, probabl3 T by the action of the water from the propel ler, and seemed to point above us. Instinctively we all looked to the upper deck, and there, hanging far out, with a face wearing the most malignant hate, or hellish glee, I ever saw, was an old man, whose long white Hair and beard marked him con spicuousH'. “We all rushed for the stairway, but on gaining the upper deck he v was gone. A steward informed us that such a' person dashed bj' him and that he wore a long linen duster. He also said that the man was mutter ing something to himself wholly un intelligible. “We informed the captain of what we had seen, and at once orders were given to search the ship. No passen gers were found anywhere answering the description. A second search was made, ever3’ passenger being scru tinized. Then all hands were inspect ed, but with the same result. “On reaching the West street pier officers were stationed about the gangwa3', and as the passengers filed ashore all were again subjected to close examination. But no old gen tleman was found wearing white hair and beard. Then the boat was given a second overhauling, with the former ' success. “A 3'eaf passed, and I had well nigh forgotten it. O, I should re mark that the bod3' of the man was secured a day after the murder was committed. For it was murder, the hole in the head having been made by a revolver fired at close range. “As I was saying, I had forgotten it when I received orders to sail at once for Savannah to look after a case there. On the first night out I .'r;v > hadi„beeji paying whist in the smok jjag-room and did not leave the table until quite late. As I entered the saloon I heard a cry at the farther end and thought I saw some one dart into a passagewaj". The saloon was deserted and dimly lighted. “I hurried forward, not expecting to find anjone, so was startled when I stumbled upon a 3'oung man sprawl ing in a pool of blood and moaning feebl3'. I called for help and tried to bolster him up. M3' partner at the whist table now appeared and several servants. We found he had been stabbed, or rather slashed across the neck, the cut extending down to his right shoulder. But as it had missed the jugular and there were two doc tors aboard beside the boat phjsi cian, we believed it was not fatal. “Restoratives were given, the flow of blood checked, and the victim placed in his berth. When questioned as to how it happened he could only tell us that as he was about to en ter the passage leading to his state room he experienced a shock, a burn ing sensation, and realized that an old man with white hair and beard, wrapped in a long, light garment, was pushing b3' him. The knife was picked up a few feet inside the pass ageway. It was a common knife and bore the boat’s mark. “I took the captain aside and re lated the murder on the Fall River boat of a jear previous. He remem bered it, and at once took steps for a most thorough search. But, as in the other ease, no old man was found. Excepting a judge of the supreme court, one or two congressman and sev eral well-known merchants of New York cit3', no men of advanced age were on board. “You never saw ruch a nervous crowd. Although the boat was now brilliantly lighted, no one would go about alone. The servants were ex tremely agitated, and moved to obey orders in pairs. The next uay saw no abatement in the dread of the okl man who had vanished so competelj". “Once wnen Judge S approached two 3'oungsters in the forward deck I noticed that one of them reached for his hip. Several of the women were in li3'sterics, and one of them on learn ing my identity, clung to my arm all da3' long. And I must admit that I felt a little shaky'. “Here we were in a boat out of sight of land, knowing that somewhere in our midst was a murderer all the more terrible because he was not known. “Passengers with drawn revolvers ransacked each stateroom while the boat officials examined every inch of the vessel. As night drew on again the fear increased. Who next? was the look in every eye. Armed watchers guarded the more remote parts of the boat, while the passengers, to a per son, almost huddled together in the sa loon. “Along about two o’clock I deter mined to take a little scout about on m3' own hook, and slipping on some ‘sneaks,’ with loaded revolver in my hand, I set out. I must have prowled about for over an hour when I reached a passage leading back to the cabin. As I was about to enter it I remem bered it was the same one through which the murderer fled on the night before. “A light was dimly burning near the center of the passage and under it I could l discern a watchman, who was asleep. For some reason I looked behind me. All was clear, but as I turned again I experienced the greatest shock of my life. For bending over the recumbent guard was the old man in the linen duster with a wicked looking knife upraised. “I let out a yell that ought to have reached the mainland, and thrusting forward m3' revolver, let go. With an answei'ing shriek the old man turned CLUNG TO MY ARM ALL DAY LONG. and dropped his weapon. I hope never again to see such a look of devilish ferocity as shone from his face. “Os course, all this took place in a second, but even then I knew my bul let had gone wide. Without the knife, however, I was not afraid of him, and with another jell I jumped forward. But quicker than I, the old man dart ed a few steps down the passageway and into a stateroom. After him I sprang, blit found the door locked. I jumped against it, but it did not give way entirely. “With another lunge I had it opened. A woman’s scream greeted me. and I saw that the occupant was sitting up in her berth, her eyes full of terror. The window was open, and with scant courtesy I rushed for this. The woman behind me stopped ! screaming. Turning from the w indow my eyes met her face in a mirror. I then realized) the horrible truth, for the face wore the same look of fiend ish intensity I had seen in the pas sageway. “When the boat’s people found me I had her handcuffed and she was writh ing in a maniac's frenzjn She was a sporadic murderer, and she was also the young woman who had clung to me so tenaciously during the preced ing day.” “What about the white hair and linen duster?” broke in Kenton, whose pipe had gone out the meanwhile. “We found them stuffed under her berth; also the false beard,” I ex plained. “She died inside of a j'ear in a lunatic asylum.” “Are you sure she’s dead?” inquired Kenton.—Boston Globe.

DO-NOTHING POLICY OF ADMINISTRATION Work of a Government linrenn Turned to Political Uses by the Republicans—Farmers Not to Be Fooled by “Prosperity” Palaver— Doctoring' the Census Returns. [Special Correspondence.] The republican campaign hand book is about ready for circulation. It is intended primarily for the cam paign speakers, and it is rather a sig nificant fact that the republicans have to educate their own advocates on the arguments they are to advance. is, of course, the kej'- note of the book. The tables have been largely prepared bj' the bureau of statistics, a government bureau which is supported bj' the whole peo ple for legitimate purposes and not for the benefit of the republican ma chine. Still it has been seized by the ad ministration t and made to grind out a marvelous set of statistics. If the workingmen are to indorse the ad ministration thej* must be convinced that wages have risen. A table Is given which purports to be compiled from reports of labor or ganizations. This is misstatement number one, for at least one-third of the trades quoted have no organiza tion and those that have are not making statements for republicans’ use. Advances in wages for 1899 are ranged anywhere from 10 to 300 per per cent. It will surprise stage em ployes to learn that tliej r are credited with the 3CO per cent, advance in three 3'ears. The textile workers are quoted as having increased their wages from 12 to 22 per cent., when everjbody knows that they were cut 25 per cent, just after McKinley went into office, that they had a long and disastrous strike in order to restore the 25 per cent., and that about two-thirds of them are now idle, cannot get work even at cut rates. The table is not even a skillful fic tion, for it puts the increase lowest in the trades that owing to their own exertions have had a substantial advance and vice versa. This sort of campaign fiction brings its own re action very quicklj\ When a street railway emplo3’e, for instance, hears a republican campaign orator claiming that McKinley and “prosperity” have raised liis wages 15 per cent., and he knows that he had to go on strike to keep his wages from being cut, that workingman is going to believe that the republicans are direct in hei'itors of the talents of Ananias. When this same workman reflects that he pays trust prices for every thing he eats and wears and that the.v are from 25 to 40 per cent, high er tbgn in ’96, he begins to wonder if it won’t be a good idea to elect a president with a different policy from the “trust prosperity” one with which we are burdened. Boomerang; Statistics. The statistics for the benefit of the farmer are not convincing. The farm er knows that the price of wheat, for instance, has often been higher than it is now, but he does not remember the time in his experience when wire fencing and lumber were so high that he had to go without fences and barns because he could not pay trust prices for the materials after he took the price determined for his wheat by the board of trade combinations. The farmer knows ver3 r well that the consuming capacit3* of the people is not greater than it was three 3'ears ago. To be sure plenty of poor peo ple would like to eat more bread, but the3' have not the measure of pros peritj- which will enable them to con sume all they want of the farmers’ products. The republicans forget that manu factured statistics are always a boom erang. The3 r are contradicted by the knowledge of the people. Statistics about important matters are onl3' be lieved when they coincide with the facts at hand. Dun’s review of trade for July strikes a pretty hard blow at the prosperity argument. It is not trj'- ing to give the calamity howl either. In fact it endeavors to explain aw'a3' the unpleasant facts which it is forced to present in regard to the state of trade. Dun’s report shows a total of 1,530 failures in all branches of business for July, with liabilities of over $17,000,- 000. Its own comment on this state of affairs is: “The total shows a heavy increase in comparison with the corresponding month last year, which is mainly due to phenomenally sound conditions at that time.” So conditions were $17,000,000 worth more stable this time last year than now. The slump has been going on for some time and the next three months will show a marked increase in the number of failures. It looks as though the republicans would be obliged to drop their prosperity argu ment very shortly. Mnnitraiate the Flgnres. The census employes are being worked like a lot of sweat shop op eratives in order to collate and tab ulate the immense mass of figures that have been collected in time for manipulation for republican campaign purposes. There are a lot of ques tions on the census schedules which were put there for no purpose ex cept to extract information for re publican use. The system in the census depart ment is simple. Any returns which do not carry out the republican the orj' can be ignored and other com binations made. Nobod}' will be the wiser. The work is so divided and classified that neither employes nor chiefs of divisions can be sure just how the statistics are to be used in the final tabulation. Director Merriam is honesth' and frank!}' a partisan. He was disap pointed at not being made cne of M< -- Kiijity’s cabinet, but he is doing serv ice now ivhich should entitle him to promotion if the countrj- decides that it wants another four j'ears of im perialism and trust control. Merriam is not a statistician, but he gathered about him a number of shrewd manipulators of figures who have had experience in various states. Thej' can produce statistics from the census reports which will prove be yond doubt that the moon is made of green cheese or any other absurdity desired. A Do-Nothing Policy. The administration drifts a little nearer war with China ever}' da}'. It is tr}'ing to do nothing in particular and thus please everybodj'. This poli cy has not the desired result. Our troops with a few thousands of the allied forces have started for Peking. It will be little short of a miracle if anj' fragment of them are ever heard from again alive. There are about 300,000 Chinese blocking the way, and thej- are armed with mod ern rifles and know how to fight. Whether the minister and citizens are alive or dead the administration has missed its chance by not call ing congress in extra session at once, sending 50,000 troops, if necessar}', to their relief, and then getting out of China and leaving the allies to do what they liked. Brian would have done that had he been in the white house. ADOLPH PATTERSON. DUE TO CARRY WISCONSIN. Lending Men in the Wolverine State Believe That Bryan Will C«i»- ture Their Commonwealth. Democrats who have traveled con siderablj' throughout this section of the countrj', says a special from La Crosse, Wis., bring in surprising re ports that the people are angry at the republican administration’s misdeeds, and will have no more of it. 111 fact, thej' saj' that it looks as if Brj'an will carrj' Wisconsin, which has alwaj's been given to the republicans, and with a good-sized .majoritj', too. Principal among the® objections to Mark Hanna's administration is the attitude of the partj' in power 011 im perialism and trusts. The German-Americans are loud in their denunciation of McKinlej’s atti tude toward the Philippines, and be lieve that it is his intention to turn the government into a monarchj'. Such is the feeling through this congression al district, and reports from Minnesota, on the other side of the Mississippi river, are of the same nature. lion. James J. Hogan, who gained considerable notorietj' in 1896 bj' fight ing Bryan and the silver platform, but who now is one of the most stanch supporters of the next president, has refused to allow the use of his name as a candidate for governor. Ilis large business interests will prevent him from making the run, although he is ac knowledged to be one of the strongest democrats in the state at the pi-esent time. Attornej' C. L. Hood, who has been suggested for the place, also refuses to run, giving as his reason that he could not give up his law practice. This leaves only one person in this section of the state who has been men tioned for the candidacj', Hon. Wen dell A. Anderson, maj or of La Crosse, ami the best the citj- has ever had. This is acknowledged by the majoritj of citizens, republicans as well as dem ocrats. Maj'or Anderson has been spoken of for the position several times, but he refused to run. He has not j-et refused to be a candidate this j ear, and it is thought that he can be in duced to do so. Major Anderson served two terms under Cleveland’s administration as consul to Montreal, Can., and ac quitted himself remarkably in this po sition. In connection with Mr. Hogan it might be added that this change of opinion regarding Col. Brj'an was brought about by a hunting trip with him on Col. Wetmore’s reserve in the Ozark mountains. He also spent 3 couple of weeks with him on a fishing expedition at Minocqua, Wis. He has manj- interesting experiences to tell of these outings and is alwajs readj 7 to do so. lie saj s Mr. Bryan is the most won derful man he ever knew, honest as the daj' is long and the best possible man for the nation’s chief executive. —• Chicago American. OPINIONS AND POINTERS. One of the most grateful results of democratic victorj' this year will be the elimination of Mark Hanna as a dominating figure in American pub lic life.—St. Louis Republic. We have come to the parting of the ways, and that he is not for the democratic partj' in its great fight for constitutional government and rebel from corporate oppression must be counted with the enemy.—Buffalo Courier. ——Mr. Bryan is a dangerous man. He is a man of the people, and that sort of a man should not be allowed to CO at large these times. He might intrude himself in some rude way upon the palatial repose of a protected mo nopoly and smash some of its crock ery.—Columbus (O.) Press-Post. There is eveyy reason to believe, that the south will be solid for Bryan and Stevenson in November. Ken tucky, Maryland and West Virginia will follow North Carolina in giving an increased democratic vote sufficient to place them again firmly in the demo cratic column. —Buffalo Courier.

We have much better reasons for seizing a slice of that empire than we had for taking the Philippines.

I’roas r os 1. GOLD DEMOCRATS FOR BRYAN. Getting Back to the Only Party That Believes from Ex tortion. The Palmer and Buckner democrats of McLean count}-, 111., formally an nounce that they are now supporting Bryan and Stevenson. they have issued a statement- in which they declare that their views on the siher question, which was the lead ing issue in 1596, have undergone no change. Lut in their judgment this issue has, for the time being at least, given place in importance to two others l , which <ia\e been forced upon the country by the republican party and which now. in their belief, “threaten our basic nation al principles and organic national life. They state these issues as fol lows: 1. I n-Amerlcan colonization, dis ruptive not only of our national integ rity and morals, but also of our na tionalpeace,prosperity and perpetuity. 2. “The fostering of trusts and of un just and flagrant private monopoly.” lhe colonization to which the Mc- Lean county democrats object is in deed un-American. Properly speaking, it is not colonization at all, which means the sending forth of people from a parent country to occupy the wilder ness and plant there the laws, the insti tutions, the civilization of that coun try. What the republican party has un dertaken to do is not to people a wilderness, either adjoining or remote from the United States, with Ameri cans, but to establish American do minion over countries already as dense ly populated as Illinois or even Massa chusetts—over millions of people occu pying regions where there is no room for American colonies in the proper sense of the word. To true colonization—that is, to the overflow of American people and insti tutions into unoccupied territory or territory occupied only by a few rov- “THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS IMPERIALISM.’* ing savages who practically make no use of the soil and other resources available—there is no rational objec tion. To the conquest of countries already densely populated, where there is no room for genuine American coloniza tion—to the subjugation of millions of people and their government- as sub jects upon the assumption that they are not capable of governing them selves —there is great objection. That sort of thing unquestionably is “disruptive not only of our national in tegrity anl morals, but also of our na tional peace, prosperity and perpe tuity.’’ As to the trust issue there can be no mistake. The republican party is re sponsible for the Dingley tariff, in the absence of which nine-tenths of the trusts would be harmless. The trusts recognize the republican party as their party. They go to it for such legislation, including the Porto Kican law, as l will help fatten their bank accounts. They multiply and wax defiant of law when that party is in power. These notorious facts point unmis takably to the only party from which relief from trust extortion is to be ex pected.—Chicago Chronicle. Jio Business Scare. The managers of Mr. McKinley’s can vass for a second term apparently are planning “a business' scare” as the most- convenient means to the end which they have in view. For the pur pose of forcing large contributions to the campaign fund in the first instance and of stampeding the voters ultimate ly they seem to be striving to excite the public mind anew on the silver question. There is manifest a disposi tion among them to divert political discussion from the concrete problems of the hour to what is at present an idle and untimely abstraction. In other words they are doing their ut most to make the country believe that the free coinage of silver is involved in the result of the election in Novem ber, and are employing premises' and conclusions which are equally ficti tious.—Boston Globe. Democracy is not making a cam paign of apology and explanation this year. Apologies and explanations are the chief products of the republican machine in this campaign. The repub lican machine has a patent on that sort of thing now, and democracy has no disposition to infringe upon it.—Omaha World-Herald. Every list of killed and wound ’d that comes to us from the Phil ippines is a record of unjustifiable cru elty to our own sons and adds to the longchapter of dishonor with which the McKinley administration has darkened our national annals. —Atlanta Journal. THE GREAT ISSUE. As the Democratic Platform Says, It Is Imperialism, and Not 1G to 1. The democratic convention was right and wise in declaring that “the burning issue of imperialism’’ is “the para mount issue of the campaign.” It is the way of the American people to settle one issue at a time. In the war of 1861 the one object of the north was to save the union. Everything else, as Lincoln so often said, was a side is sue. In 1898 the one object of the na tion in going to war with Spain was to free Cuba. Other consequences were not considered. In all our pres'idential elections one issue has been paramount —determin- ing. In 1860 it was to stop the exten sion of slavery into the territories. In 1864 it- was to sustain the government in prosecuting the war. In IS6S it was to “preserve the fruits of the war.” In 1876 it was reform—the battle cry of Tilden. In 1884 the election turned mainly upon the political character of James G. Blaine. In 1892 the dominant issue was the odious McKinley tariff. In 1596 it was, of course, free silver it It to 1. This year, as the Kansas City plat form truly declares, “the paramount is sue” is “the burning issue of imperial ism, involving the very existence of the republic and the destruction of our free institutions.” Surely nothing can be more paramount or more fundamental than this. Why, then, is there any question that- this is the one dominating issue? Why did Mr. McKinley in his speech of acceptance so promptly accept the challenge of the 16-to-l plank in the democratic platform and seek*to make that again the paramount issue? Is it not, as the Brooklyn Eagle so acutely says, because “honest money is a uni versal interest?” Is-it not because the shrewd republican managers know that ten hesitating voters will vote to protect their money and property to one who will vote upon so splendid an abstraction as equal liberty and a re public true to its ideals ? With Mr. Bryan himself rests the de termination of the question whether “the paramount issue” shall be in fact paramount. Mr. McKinley, by his frank declaration of the republican purpose to hold and to rule the Philip pines by “supreme authority,” outside the constitution—regardless of the ef fect- of this poisonous graft of empire upon the healthful stock of the repub lic —renews the inestimable opportun ity to make “the burning issue of im perialism” the pivot of the election.— N. Y. World. SAID NOT A WORD. McKinley Made \o Allusion to Trust* in Ills Speech of Ac ceptance. Mr. McKinley’s speech at Canton, ac cepting the republican nomination for president, and announced in advance by Congressman Grosvenor, the presi dent's mouthpiece, as “the real repub lican platform of 1900,” contained not one word concerning the trusts. This is at least logical on the part of the president, disappointing though it be to the American people suffer ing so grievously from trust monopoly and legislation for the further en richment of the trusts at their ex pense. The president could not de fend the trust evii. Defense of that evil is not possible to the cunningest special pleader. The evil stands con demned on its own showing. And assuredly the president could not, in his helpless vassalage to the trusts, denounce them. The}' own him and’ dictate his policy through Mark Hanna, their accredited instrument. They elected him to the presidency in 1896. They are contributing the slush fund' to be used in his campaign for reelection this year. They look to him for the extension of their power and the strengthening of their greedy grasp on the commerce and industries of the country. He is pledged to their service, body and soul. Therefore the president of the Unit ed States did' not dare, in accepting a renomination to the high office which he now holds, to say one word about the trusts. He stands before the American people dumb on this great issue. It is his duty to defend the people from the monopoly greed of the trusts. He dare not. He is mute and, of his own consent, impotent. It is for the American people to pass judg ment upon such a servant of the peo ple. —St. Louis Republic. The republican rally might have stiffened up that anti-trust plank a trifle. The republican party has earned the right to scold the trusts when it feels like it.—Albany Argus. The tripping feet—the sparkling eye—the graceful movement—be long not alone to the budding maiden. These graces are the right—aye duly of every wo/nan until the hair whitens —and regal dignity replaces them. The mother who guards her strength has so much more to de vote to the care and education of her dear ones. She should be a comfort —a cheer —always. Yet how many feel that they have the strength to properly bal ance the home ? The world is list less, weary and morbid. Its blood moves sluggishly and is full of im purities. It needs a kindling, in vigorating tonic to set it afire —it needs Pe-ru-na, THE ONE MEDICINE in the world which women may rely upon positively. Pe-ru-na is good for everyone, but particularly for women. The various weak nesses which afflict their delicate or ganism spring from inflammation or catarrh of the mucous lining.and Pe-ru-na is a specific for catarrh in any organ of the body. Any congestion of a mucous membrane simply means catarrh of the organ affected. This is why Pe-ru-na cures all sorts of troubles where other remedies fail.
