TH* DitLT LIADBB makes a special feature of
uruishit: ^.formation concerning the advantsges
au.l rteoorces of the city of MadUon and of th«
ae at large entitling It to the patro-iagj otaa-
Parder Xe*v Era, IS: "W bat has be
come of the report of the Senators Tet
ti«revi-and Mantle, who went to Japan
eight months ago to try to gather mater
ial with which to offset the fact that the
have adopted the gold standard?
If they.were convinced that the tap
auese acted wisely, they ought to ha\e
the fraukuess to say so."
We believe Messrs. Pettigrew and
Mautle went to .Japan and China atth^ir
own expense and can report when they
piease or not at all if they dou want to.
But when the opportune time comes
tiiey will no doubt be heard and with
effective blows too. These gentlemen
also took a look at conditions in Hawaii
at their own expense and we believe Mr.
Pettigrew has been heard pretty effectu
ally on that question. At least Mr.
Pettigrew is credited by his colleagues
and the large journals of the country
with having made the ablest speech on
the question by any of the senators ami
it is gerally conceded that the prospect
ratitication of the treaty by the senate
is pretty effectually killed. Is the New
Era really anxious to hear from Mr.
Pettigrew ou the grinding effects of the
gold standard in Japau .' He is not with
out abundant proof of its advantage to
tlie government and the rich of Japau,
out all made up at the expense of the
toiler and producer. But, perhaps, the
New Era really thought that Mr. Petti,
grew had to make a report even though
he traveled at his own expense

IT. Sjbrai.a uavai attache of the Spanish
legation at Washington. The former
said at Barcelona in reference to th«
cause of the Maine's explosion that it
was probably due "to the insolence of
the crew,'' Which is about equal to sa)
.tig that Weyler's followers in Havauu
are ^capable of any devili6hness that
would gratify their hatred of the Ameri
can. Equally as rabid and fir from the
trnth is the statement credited to Lieut.
Sobrai: "It was the result of an ex
plosion insiue the ship, which took place
one of the forward magazines. The
fact of the matter is that the discipline
and the watcn observed on the ship were
very lax. This, as an English uewspaper
*aid the other day, is the case ou Ameri
can warships generally. These sort of
things have oecured on previous oc
cas'ons ou Am-rican ar vessels."
Huronite, 1'J: The annual report of
t'ae civil service commission has
been issued and shows that dur

4,130 were appointed to life seivice in
office. About one in ten who take the
examinations secure appointments, The
i'lv.i service has doubtless come to stay
aud will soon create a life holding class
of olllcers which is one of the serious ob
jections TO TLIH IHW. Under a govern
ment of the people such a thing as an
oSlioe hold ng t'lacs is objectionable. The
spoi.s system had its drawbacks, but the
civii service law does not remedy ail the
evils of the spoils system and creates
others far more objectionable.
Secretary J},i-H h.s r-inlt-red a decis
ion as to the price to be paid for public
lands in Sisse'on and Yankton reserva
tions, S. D. The case came to him on
appeal of the agent of the stat- of South
Dak'.tn. who claims that the settlers who
imuiute entries should be required to
pay cl:2'j per acre in addition to the
stipulated price for lands under the
t-ea.j, I he land office decided against
this contention and the secretary affirms
the decision. It is held that the settlers
on the Si.ssetoti and Wahpeton reserva
tions must pay per acre in addition
to the usual fees and commissions. Set
tlers on the Yankton reservation are re
quired to pay $.}.(."} per acre under the
act of Aug. 15,1891. The state's inter
est arose from the fact that 5 per cent of
the proceeds of.tbe sales of lands is due
under the act of admission.

Many Things About Interoal Organs.
NEW YORK, Feb. 22.—The invention
is announced of the phonendoscope, au
instrument of wonderful value in
studying the condition of the internal
organs of the body. It is declared by
physicians to be a tremendous advance
on the old stethoscope. By its aid the
physician can not only ascertain the
condition of an organ, but trace its
shape. It has been discovered with the
phonendescope that the stomach as
sumes a different form when full of
different kinds of food and drink. The
rapidity with which various kinds of
food and drink are digested, can also be
studied accurately with the phonendo
scope. The instrument is the invention
of Doctors Blauchi and Bazzi of France.

As a result of this action, the Cana
