THE BELDINO BANNER
IIY COWIHN & LATHAM. THURSDAY, NOV. 24, 1898. Tho movement to abolish party con ventions, and nominate all ofllcers at caucuses, eould but reault in political chaos. U would practically result in two elections, and a very much smaller percentage of the peoplo would actually participate in the affairs of govern ment. In cities where It is eay to get to tho polls without trouble or loss of time, a preponderating Influence would bo wielded. Political parties represent well defined economic principles. For instance, tho Republican party xtands for protection, sound money and equal rights. Protection was the rallying cry of tho Republicans in 1S90, and as a result of the success of the party a wise tariff law was enacted and the country has been greatly benefited. Without Republican organization, party organ ization, free trade and free silver might have been successful with the brood of attendant evils. Might as well con duct a great business, and government is nothing more than business, by hav ing no policy at all, but the hundred, or thousand, employed in the business all pulling in different directions to ac complish the same end. Republicans who believe the best interests of tho country are along the lines of Repub lican principles should have nothing to do with this revolutionary move ment. St. Johns Republican. Admiral Schley, who was one of our Military Commissioners charged with the duty of arranging for the evacua tion of Porto Rico, was in Washington last week, lie brought a full report of the work of himself and colleagues in Porto Rico, with him, and it is now in the hands of the president.. He refuses to discuss any of the numerous sensa tional stories dealing with the relations, both personal and otlieial, between himself and Admiral Sampson, but has expressed an ardent desire to get hold of the man who started the story that ho was a Democrat. He said that as a naval oHlcer he has no politics other than his country and does not consider any other necessary: that his first and pai amount duty is to the administra tion. Secretary Long has not yet de cided what duty Admiral Schley will next be assigned to, but will endeavor to meet tho Admiral's u ihes after con ferring with him. Spain has been given until Monday, Nov. US, to accede to the demands made by the United States through its peace commissioners relative to tho Philip pine Islands. All other questions have been settled and agreed to but the Spaniards seem unwilling to give up the archipelago. The propositions laid down in the American ultimatum are as follows: 1. That the entire Philippine archipelago shall he ceded by Spain to the United States. 2. That the United States shall pay to Spain for tho islands $20,0(10,000. 3. That Spain shall make a definite response to tho American ultimatum on or before Nov. 28. Democrats will derive some satisfac tion from tho fact that both houses of the next congress, being Republican, the party will have to be held responsi ble for its acts there can bo r.o stum bling blocks thrown in its way by ob struction from tho other side. The Republican party can expand its terri tory, and favor imperialism, and issue bonds, and pass Dingley bills, and raise Samhill generally, and will not be able to plead the baby act by saying the Democrats made us do or made us not do it. They will have to stand or fall by their record. Big Rapid. Herald. Having failed In the election, the Democrats have returned to their old occupation of trying to create disson tion among the victorious Republicans. They are circulating stories to the effect that friends of the president mo trying to prevent Speaker Reed being re-elected speaker of the next house. There is not a word of truth In tho stories, arid it is as certain as anything in the future can be that Mr. Reed will be speaker of the next house, un less ho declines to be. A Narrow Kftcitpr.

Thero was a certain family in which tho worker became interested. Though very poor, their rooms were clean, and they were very fond of one another, especially of the old grandmother, who had not been long in this country. The church people were very desirous of assisting them, as the children always attended Sunday school and were well brought up; so tho district visitor was instructed to look out for them. This tho did, peeing that they had a modest allow ance of groceries, coal enough to keep them from freezing, and bo on. She did not give them money, as that was contrary to her methods except in special cases, but she was going out of town for a week, and so left with the mother f0 cents for emergencies. This is what they told her they did with it: "The wratber was no fine, and grand ma had never seen the shops here. 1 knew," said tho mother, "that they mu"t bo dressed handsome for Faster, so I took grandma and tho children down town in tho electric cars and let tin in sue all thu stores. That cost 40 cents down and back, and with the 10 cents left I bought grandma some pep permints. "Boston Herald. lilt of Tin. "An ordinary political campaign," paid a novelty manufacturer, "is not an unmitigated evil to all branches of trade. Among those that profit by itare the tin can manufacturers. Most of the campaign buttons aro made of tin, and when a big political struggle is expect ed the makers Fend out aeuts through the tin factories of the south to buy up all the waste tin and useless cans they can find to make their buttons with. Most of the campaign buttons are made in Newark, and the amount paid by the makers to tho can factories, particularly thos jcf Baltimore, is considerable, even though tho tin is waste, if anything can ho called waste nowadays. "Nor is tho tin waste useless, even when no political excitement is on. I know a man who visits Baltimoro at regular intervals and buys all the scrap tin lie can find and sells it to the button makers. It is used for tho bucking of ordinary buttons. Any day in parts of Brooklyn you can pee wagons loaded with scrap tin and old cans. The great er part of this goes to tho places where buttons, toys and gewgaws of various kinds aro made."
