It is announced that tic names of those a to constitute the financial commission will soon be made Public by or. Hugh Hanna s executive committee and it to further said that the men chosen f these important positions Are Thor Quot qua fled for them. We Hope that these statements Are True. It is pm that the commission should set at an Early Day and it is also it that it should be adequate to the a which it a to undertake. There that with the return of pros our people As Well As our poll May lose interest in this great americans Are so happily con that they not Only speedily for troubles but they sometimes or pretend to think that their Bles when Olce passed Are not Likely in the present Caen we believe they Are in Earnest in Belr desire Tor currency Reform and that they will sustain the recommendations of a wisely a chosen commission a at any rata that la what they should do. We have no Assurance whatever that the present Prosperity will be permanent. We All Hope that it will be. A but Wise men will reflect that the conditions nog prevailing Are unusual and abnormal. We Oan not count on Good crops in this country and Short crops abroad a vary year. It is quite possible that next year the conditions May be reversed. Short crops in the Argentine and Russia and a famine in India Are not things on which to can depend. Under Ordinary we must expect formidable from All these countries. But year the Argentine is said to be importing wheat and All Tbs great european crops Are Short. To we should be vary foolish to assume that the Prosperity of this year will be with us next year. Nor ought we to count too heavily upon the Revenue producing qualities of the Dingley Law. It seems to be admitted that to will have another deficit at the close of the present fiscal year. To those who foolishly i Slat that with an abundance of Revenue there will be question ought not to be atoned to for even on their own theory we have no Assurance that we shall have an abundance of Revenue. Plainly there a it is our duty to prepare for hard a a in order that when they come As they will we shall be ready to in Tilte of the optimism of people we believe they Are fully to the necessity for flan Cal re if they Are. They will spare no to impress upon their senators representatives the imperative duty so ordering our finances that they win to Able to stand the Strain of a period of. Industrial depression. Xxx Miri generosity. In the history of the world there has thing equating the generosity of Van int of ours toward those soldiers who fought la and survived our a toil War. In saying that the pension that the Burden on the tax payers to stupendous we do not wish to to in Damwood As decrying in Tho smallest degree Tho great service reordered to the country by the veterans of the War. Thor deserve generous treat but Tinto is such a thing As be lavish. It to currently reported i East that there to a movement the organisation of the grand the Republic looking to recur tha next Congress of a per or every person now waa enlisted in the Union the War. Called attention in to the rapid increase of in Revenue. Our Revenue Aro m present demands of we Ore getting deeper debt falling further and since the let of july 1 the fiscal year the de it to estimated by con that it will Resch of the fiscal year. In the Treasury a Cash cold Reserve of 6120-close of the present Are kept a this 170,060,000. Should a per a town pension Bill go through this balance might be altogether wiped out at least serious inroads would be made on it be sur. The passage of such a Bill would be Likely to let Down the bars and stimulate extravagance in Many other directions. It la now thirty three years since the War and yet the pension list has been steadily increasing until last year the amount paid out was nearly 1140,000,000 to be accurate it was tl36.4s4.00l this was four times the amount spent on the army aside from Rivers and harbours which Are charged to the War depart men. It was five times the amount a pent on the Navy and fifteen times As much As the entire legislative department Cost. It was Only 67.000.000 Les than the entire receipt of the government from internal Revenue it was equal to seven eight be of All the Money collected from customs Eutlee. The average tax on the people of this country for Federal purposes amounted to 86.75 a head and of this amount 14 per cent or 81.86. Went to satisfy the pension demand. Where is this going to Stop there Are politicians enough who believe in the Potency of the Soldier vote to bring great pressure for the passage of the proposed per diem pension Bill to say nothing of the pressure of the pension agents. Tear by year disabilities have been removed bar after bar has been let Down but now it would seem that All to to be taken away and every Man who fought on the Union Side in the War is to be helped at the Pullo Treasury a that is by the tax payers. The Church and civilization. No Reader of the secular press can have failed to note the great attention now paid to things religious. News of the churches and their doings to Welcome in newspaper offices and it would not be Welcome unless there were a demand for it on the part of the general Public. Many papers print sermons a indeed there Are bureaus and syndicates which furnish sermons to the papers. The Church services Are fully reported and conventions of Church people always excite great interest. All this seems to indicate that there is a much closer connection Between the life of the Church and the life of the world than there was Twenty five or thirty years ago. We do not believe that this is because the Church has become worldly or because there has been any lowering of its religious and spiritual tone. It is rather because practical men of affairs Are beginning to see what a Large place Tho Church occupies in our modern life and Are impressed a Ruth the increasing obligation under which civilisation to to the Christian religion. That this is True will be admitted by any one at All familiar with Church work in our larger cities. The Beneficent activity of Christian people is ceaseless and multifarious. Missions Homes hospitals schools kindergartens Reading rooms Coffee houses and other institutions Are maintained for the Relief of human suffering and the up building of broken humanity. In a word the Church has become missionary in the Best and most divine sense. It has heard the voice of her master who said of himself a the spirit of the lord is upon me because he hath annoy need me to preach the gospel to the poor he hath event me Tor heal the broken hearted to preach deliverance to the captives and recovering of sight to the Blind to set at Liberty them that Are bruised to preach the acceptable year of the and this with All its human weaknesses and imperfections the Church to doing. Men of All classes understand this and so Thev feel More interested in the work of the Church than they did in the Days when it was so much Given to discussing abstract theological questions. Men judge it by the divine test a that it by its fruits a and they find that it is Able to stand the Teel we have recently received a private letter from a gentleman who a Peak of himself As having been in the past a rather materialistic Quot in which much is made of this phase of the Church s use. Perhaps his very materialism better enables him to apply the material test. For. After All we can know nothing of the spiritual except As it embodies itself in material forma to it May be that he in his new found and wholly commendable Seal draws too Sharp a contrast Between Spry and form Between life and Dogma christianity is As he says a life rather than a system and spiritual rather than dogmatic. But we do not believe there has been any lessening in the Devotion to form and Dogma the difference is that the system la alive and that the Church is filled with the divine spirit. Systems and dogmas Are not so much talked of because Christian people take them for granted much As a gentleman takes for granted his position among his fellow the author of the epistle to the hebrews advised Christian people to adopt this habit of mind toward the great articles of the Christian Faith. He wrote As follows therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ let us go on to perfection not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works and of Faith toward god. Of the doctrine of baptisms and of laying on of hands and of resurrection of the deed and of eternal judgment his theory was. Not that these principles were not important a on the contrary he Speaks of them As the foundation of the Christian Faith a but that when they were once settled it was foolish to be continually referring to them. Quot let us a he says Quot go on to that is the business of the Man or institution holding to the Christian principles. To. In this Peterla Lastlo world there must be system Dogma form a it will not do to underestimate these or to assume that we have outgrown them a because they Are at the Basto of the Active tree which Challenge the admiration of our correspond est and of other men. Indeed the Church Only dote the great work which it is accomplishing be Cebee it regards itself in a vary real though mystical sense As the Extension of the person and life of its founder who launched it on its errand of mercy and Relief. It to because it has in some measure caught to great spirit that it has made and to making so deep a Mark on the civilisation of our Day. A great writer has emphasised Thomas Carlyle s mighty Genius by asking us to try and think of the nineteenth Century with Carlyle left out of in and we have a right to ask the doubters sceptics and sneered. Who see nothing in the Christian religion except a pretty fancy or a degrading superstition. To imagine if they can what our civilisation would be with christianity out of in and the More they think about it the More they will wonder a if they Are honest a How it is that the life of a Humble Galu Eean peasant a from their Point of View a has so swayed the world until to Day it is the dominant Force in the Only parts of Thuc world fit to live in. Christianity to indeed a use a but it is the life of Jesus Christ embodied in the system and institution which he created. And it is because the Church has been getting closer and closer to that wonderful use that it has it Een Able to do great things for that humanity which it is her business to save. And so As our correspondent says a after two thousand weary years of wrangling Over Petty worthless doctrines it is inspiring to see the Church getting Back to Christ s use Anil Christian people have yet a great Deal to learn but every year mors and More of them Are doing the work of their master a which Meana work for their Brethren. And it is encouraging that men of the world who have Quot been rather materialistic Quot Are noting the Progress of the Church along that path which was trod by its great founder. The a Home Market Quot is not in it with the foreign Market this year. Fremont in or. Bryan s own state of Nebraska comes Forth with the greatest percentage of increase in Bank clearances of 163.5. All conditions Are conspiring to make free Silver ridiculous. England although not embroiled with any of the first class Powers still has about All she can comfortably handle in her troubles in the Sudan on the at Ghan Indian Border and with nearly All Europe watching her closely in the matter of settling the Gresco turkish question. But in spite of this she can scarcely afford to pass by without notice the declaration of the Independence of the Transvaal by president Kruger. The sagacious old Boer tries to make the Point that the convention of 1881 expressly recognised the suzerainty of great Britain but that the convention of 1684, which superseded the treaty of 1881, contained no reference to British suzerainty and that therefore such suzerainty has ceased to exist the government of great Britain has always rested secure in its belief in British suzerainty Over the Transvaal. It is True that the convention of 1884 abrogated the treaty of 1881, but in the convention of 1884 it was expressly stipulated that although the Republic of the Transvaal should be regarded As Independent As far As its internal disposition was concerned. It should conclude no treaty or engagement with any nation except the Orange free state nor with any native ruler without the approval of the Queen. One reason and perhaps the chief one for this stipulation on the part of the British government has been the importance of Delagoa Bay to the English. It to a British Cooling station and a line Harbor. It to owned by the portuguese but subsidised by the British. It is Idle to suppose that president Kruger s proclamation of Independence will be allowed to pass without protest by the British government there 1# a Strong probability of trouble in the Transvaal once More. When the Farmers turned up the soil Tost fall they uncovered some Rich veins. The Klondike Gold Brick promises to become a leading article of Commerce. It to not a matter of much importance but an and loss Public would like to know just where that famous conference Between or. Taggart and or. Crawford Fairbanks took place. The journal of yesterday had a detailed account sent by a a special correspondent Quot of a meeting Between the gentlemen in Terre haute. This morning it has an interview with or. Fairbanks in which he says he did not see or. Taggart in Terre haute at All but that he met and talked with him in Chicago. We shall Nett try to reconcile the two eminent authorities hut assuming that or. Fairbanks is telling the truth a and in View of the journal s Peculiar Way of dealing with facts the Assumption does not seem unreasonable a it would be interesting to know where its a special correspondent Quot got his elaborate Story of the interview which or. Fairbanks says never took place. War bulletin the Dau Latsal tribe of afrides have descended the Hills near to hat a a. Now. If the Fanner Only bad that Export Bounty on Grain he could demonstrate to the manufacturer what special privileges mean. The Alliance Between Russia and France now seems to be an assured fact. Germany is reported to be much disturbed Over the turn which affairs have taken. If this be the Case it would not be strange it her Lively Yonng emperor should come to have a More kindly feeling for to Royal grandmother and the great Empire Over which Ahe presides. Germany s most dreaded foe is France and great Britain s most dreaded foe to Russia and the combination Between Russia and France ought to have the effect of bringing together the two Powers that Are most seriously threatened by the new Alliance. Recipients of special privilege under the Dingley Bill Are disposed to decry any further Tariff agitation. If the Farmers connect with Prosperity it will not be through the Tariff but in spite of in senator Morgan who by the Way to about to Start for Hawaii has refused to talk for publication. This remarkable piece of news waa Given yesterday in a Brief paragraph a so Blind is the world to really great events. If we could Only believe that the senator s control Over his vocal organs would continue president Faure and the csar Are exchanging presents. What Are All men to know by these presents ? the Senate and House clerks on appropriations have made up a summary of the total appropriation voted at the last two sessions of Congress. It shows that 1867,160,894 Era voted in general appropriation acts 810,587,417 Tor deficiency Acta and 3300.067 for miscellaneous acts making a total of 3406.6.858. To this must be added the 3130,978.331 of permanent annual appropriations making a Giand total of 3623.733,078. This to the largest sum appropriated for expenditure by Congress since the War. It beats the record of 1882. When the appropriations amounted to 1626,000,000, and this was Tho previous highest record since the War this shows an upward tendency in the matter of government expenditures. To the lost fiscal year disbursements outside of Tho postal service amounted to 3376,000.000. And the appropriations for the current year show that expenses will be fully As Large As those of last year. Thu Means that the government s Revenue must exceed an average of 31.000,000 a Day. The receipts for August under the new Revenue act show an average of about 3680.000 a Day. If the government receipts Are to keep within speaking distance of the government expenditures importations will have to increase materially. If Salisbury holds out for his policy about the War indemnity Turkey will motion for More rooting from the India bleachers. The 10 per cent extra duty on foreign products that come in by Way of Canada May turn out to be the crime of 87. Tho German emperor desiring to get his people to consent to an increase in the German Navy is said to have had pamphlets distributed through Berlin and other cities showing by figures Germany s need. In one of these pamphlets it is pointed out that England has a merchant Fleet of 9,000,000 tons and a Cruiser Fleet of 579,000 tons a proportion of sixty four Cruiser tons to every thousand tons of merchant Fleet. France has 1,096,000 tons of merchant Fleet and 145,000 tons of Cruiser Fleet a proportion of 132 Italy has 779.000 tons of merchant Fleet and 54.000 tons of Cruiser Fleet a proportion of 69, Russia has 488,-00c tons of merchant Fleet and 64.000 tons of Cruiser Fleet a proportion of 131. Germany is shown to have 1.900,000 tons of merchant Fleet and 87.000 tons of Cruiser Fleet a proportion of 19. It is argued from this that Germany should increase her Cruiser Fleet three fold. Gold from Alaska and perhaps Gold from Europe. Gold from the East and Gold from the West. Who said Silver now Captain Beeler denies that he had any interview with superintendent Colbert for the purpose of Quot fixing anything up Quot in the interest of the brewery represented by him. Or. Grossart of the maus Branch of the Indianapolis brewing company also denies that he had promised police Protection to John Walters if he would consent to sell the Beer of the Indianapolis brewing company. Possibly there were some True things in the journal s wonderful account of the brewery Brawl but they Are so few in number that they do not count. If this is the Best Campaign the republicans can make they had better give Over the fight at once. _ we notice from the Sentinel s account that the orators at the Silver meeting in Putnam county yesterday Quot held the vast audience the hour has struck to Call a halt. Every atom of american manhood revolts against the spectacle. Judges by the usurpation of Power and playing the role of tyrants have annihilated the Constitution. Abrogated the right of trial by jury forbidden free speech suppressed peaceable assemblage and transformed our Republic into an absolute despotism. They Are guilty of judicial treason and should be made to answer at the bar of an outraged people this is what Debb says Debs of Terre haute. He is trying to stir up trouble has been trying to do so Ever since the strike of the Coal miners started. The Only thing that has saved the strikers so far has been their Good common sense. They have listened to Debs because to has followed them up and shouted at them hut they have not heeded him. He has called on them to arise and smash the courts. They Are much Mote Likely to arise and smash Debs. The one thing that has won the sympathy of the Public for the strikers has been their orderly conduct their disregard of and All it implies. They know him for a demagogue they know he has lived off other men s labor for years and they Are Wise to ignore his inflammatory speeches. _ the project of taking the Tariff out of politics is being revived. It can never be taken out of politics by such a monstrous piece of legislation As the Dingley Bill. The French Are building a battleship to be called Henri in. It will be ready for the trial trip some time in 1901. Its displacement is 8.948 tons and the estimated Cost including armament is 84, 006.000, or at the rate of 8447 per ton displacement. France has been building battleships for years and she gets labor considerably cheaper than do american shop builders yet the battleship Indiana to of 10.200 tons displacement and Cost 84.500,000 ready for sea which to at the rate of 8441 per ton. This to rather a satisfactory comparison for America. General Azcarraga says he will follow in the footsteps of Canovas. Will he arrive at the same place it is unnecessary for the miners who Are returning from the Klondike to Tell the world How much Gold they have won to prove that they Are Lucky. Now that Winter to setting in the Mere fact that they have got Back shows that they Are not wanting in Luck. Terrible new York journal.

A reporter recently noticed three men in London addressing envelopes in the Street by the Uncertain Glare of the Gas lamps. They had not enough Money to pay for lodgings.

Two customs officers at the Frontier became suspicious of Arthur Courchelle. A Butcher s boy. Who was coming from Belgium mounted on a bicycle. They stopped him and made an examination of his machine. The tubing of the entire Frame was found to be filled with whole peppers. Tightly packed. It waa maintained by the custom House officials that the Section of the Lav which prohibits the transportation of contraband articles in vehicles ought to apply in this Case. The judges also took this View of the matter and Courchelle was sentenced to six months imprisonment and 1.000 francs Fine. His bicycle waa confiscated As letter.

Speculation on the new York Stock Exchange this last week has surpassed in activity All previous records the number of shares dealt in having twice amounted to Over 730,000 a Day and the total for live Days and a half having been Over 3,400,000. Since Stock operators Are always several months ahead of the rest of the country in upward As Well As in downward movement their present manifestation of Confidence in the future is a cheering sign. The Rise in the prices of stocks like that in the Price of wheat May reasonably be interpreted a a forerunner of a similar Rise in the prices of commodities in general and. Consequently. Of an end of the depression in business which has prevailed Ever since 1893, and which it will be remembered also began on our Stock Exchange. The Factor most efficacious in producing the improved feeling manifested by the Stock Market to without question our immense exports of dome tic produce. The value of these exports according to the latest and corrected returns was during the fiscal year just ended 81.032.000,000, while our imports of merchandise for the same year less re exports were of the value of but r46.000.000. The difference of 32r.000.000 has partly gone to pay freights on the imports and partly for interest and dividends on foreign investments in this country the remainder of it Only having been remitted to us in Gold. During the current fiscal year our exports thus far have exceed those of the corresponding period of last year and the european demand for our bread stuffs and other food products promises to extend the increase through several months to come. Hence not Only has the outflow of Gold ceased but a return of the Metal to looked for very soon. Our chief customer. The chief customer for our exports is great Britain the value of the portion of them which went to that country during the last fiscal year having been 3483,000,000, or nearly one half the whole. Of the items making up this sum the principal Are Cotton Petroleum and food the food consisting mainly of wheat wheat flour. Indian Corn beef and the various products of the hog. The imports of food from this country represent however but a fraction of that which great Britain draws Frota foreign sources. For the year 1896 her imports of Grain and flour were valued at 3260,000.000, of dead meat 3120.000.000. Of butter 390.000,000, of cheese 226,000,000, of Uve animals 350,000,000. Of eggs 320,000,000. And of fruits 328.000,000. Speaking approximately. Great Britain produces from her own soil Only about one third of the food she consumes and that fact has lately Given great concern to some of her cd Toens. Who predict a famine As the probable result of any foreign War which should prevent the free Access of shipping to British ports. The truth is that under the free Trade system which great Britain adopted fifty years ago her citizens have been gradually giving up agriculture and devoting their energies to mining and manufactures. Having Abs and amp it supplies of Coal and metals and excelling in Enterprise and ingenuity they have found it More profitable to buy food than to produce it. This Industrial transformation has been accelerated by the improvements in steam navigation and by the opening to agriculture in America and Australia of immense areas of new territory through the building of railroads. Land in great Britain has thus been gradually abandoned by its cultivators and the factories sought As a Field of employment in its place. Tilled ground has been converted by thousands of acres into pasturage and Tho resulting food deficit a been supplied from abroad. The Workingman s fare. The interesting feature of the subject is that this change has been accompanied by a great improvement in tie fare of the British Workingman. His wages have risen until they Are now 40 per cent higher than they were Twenty years ago and for each shilling of them he gets More of luxuries As Well As of necessaries than he did then. The fall in the prices of commodities which the British bimetal lists attribute to the maintenance of the Gold Standard has not they say been so great in the retail As in the wholesale Trade but still they concede that the retail reduction has been 10 per cent. Hence except in Manchester where Ootton manufacturing has been depressed by Asiatic Competition stimulated by the fall in Silver British workingmen favor the retention of the Gold Standard and the bimetal lists in parliament while they can secure the passage of resolutions approving their scheme Are afraid to enact a Law putting it in practice. It to probably True that As the British bimetal lists contend the Cost of living in great Britain has risen contemporaneously with the Rise in wages so that the Workman who Geu 40 per cent More than he used to get also spends 40 per cent or nearly 40 per cent., More and therefore has apparently gained nothing. That he has still gained something to however proved by the steady increase of the savings Bank deposits of the kingdom and of the strike funds of the various trades unions and by the reduction of working hours which those unions have been Able to secure. If working eight hours instead of ten. The workmen earn 40 per cent More wages and out of those wages can save More Money than they did they certainly Are somewhat better off than they were. If in addition they live More generously than they did even though they Lay up very Little More they have made a substantial Advance measured by Comfort and enjoyment. If not in Money. For example the British Workman consumes vastly More animal food than he did before improved methods of transportation brought it within to reach. Besides the live cattle which the great transatlantic steamers carry across the Ocean and the tons of salted beef pork Bacon and Bam which we Send her great Britain receives from Canada. Australia new zealand and South America Between 5,000,000 and 6,000.000 Frozen carcasses of Mutton every year whereas ten years ago she received Only 1.000.000. Meat imported in ism. In 1896 the aggregate of the meat imported amounted to 18,600,000 hundredweight. Against 6,700,000 hundredweight in 1886. Thus in ten years the Quantity of meat at the comand of the British Workman Haa nearly trebled. Considering that the consumption of this form of food to the recognized Index of the Standard of living in civilised countries. The increase of it in great Britain is the increased consumption in great Britain of the flesh of animals also explains Why. With the increase of population and of wealth in that country the consumption of wheat remains stationary. In 1886 that consumption was 216,000.000 bushels of which 128.000.000 bushels or about three fifths was imported. In 1866 the consumption was 214.000,000 bushels of which 183,000,000 bushels or considerably More than three quarters was imported. The population of the kingdom in 1886 was 36,700,000. And in 1896 it was 39,600,000. At this rate of increase the consumption of wheat in 1396 should have been 233.000,0000 bus Heto. While the actual consumption was As has been said Only 214,000,000 bushels showing that the increased earnings of Consumers have been expended for other forms of food. If this is True As it probably to True of other countries besides great Britain. It is quite sufficient to explain the fall in Price of wheat under it increased production without dragging in the Gold Standard. A a it. The British Workman has moreover. Improved Lito dietary to other respects than merely increasing his Butcher s mils. To consumption of article of toss imperative necessity than Ascot and bread show these gains in. In.

Against 112.-0 0,000 in 16. The people of this country have Long ago risen above the Standard of living which the British have Only lately reached. For Yean our comparatively Large consumption of meat has surprised european visitors and delighted european immigrants. People who to their european Homes eat meat once a week at the utmost. And Here that they can easily have it three time a Day. And not Only to its Quantity abundant but us Quality is of the Besl the retail butchers of this City say that the workingmen insist upon having As Choice pieces As do the millionaires. In fact it to rather a reproach upon our culinary skill that we do not make better use of the less valuable parts of the carcass of food animal. Canning of frats. How greatly the Canning of fruits and vegetable and the transportation from the South to Tho North by railroads and steamers of fish and of Early Garden produce have added to the Supply of our tables need not be enlarged upon. Our poorest Cit sent have at All seasons at prices within their mean a variety of excellent fruit and vegetables such a Kings and Nobles could not have procured a Century ago at any Cost. Nor have we by any Means reached the limits of our pro Feea in this direction. We have pretty nearly glutted the world s markets with Staples like wheat Indian Coin beef and pork and our agriculturists will he compelled in their own defense to devote themselves to the finer kinds of Garden and hot House products. California has made a wonderful Advance in the business of raising peaches pears and grapes and the oranges of Florida Are Superior to those of Sicily and Portugal. What these two states have done the rest can do each according to its special soil and climate and As tomatoes peas and Beans have become All the year round indispensable elements at our Dally meals so we May yet see artichokes mushrooms truffles and similar delicacies become equally common. Canvas Back Duck partridges Woodcock Ana Terrapin also which now command almost prohibitory prices May by skill and patience be supplied to quantities which will make them regular articles of food with those who now consume them rarely if at All. As history show the luxuries of one generation become the necessaries of the next. Henry in of France is esteemed is a humane Patriot because he expressed the wish that every peasant might have a boiled fowl for to dinner. Our peasants have that and Many thing More of which Henry in never dreamed. What would he have said on seeing ragged Little urchins buying bananas pears and peaches from Street vendors and indulging in lemonade and ice Cream at a cent a Glass the Black Horbe troop. History of the horses Ohleh secured for Culver Academy. Lake Maxlyn Rockee i Etter by. Louis Globe Don oeral the Black horse troop was the most imposing part of the great procession on Mckinley s inauguration Day. Nowhere along Pennsylvania Avenue Between the White House and the Capitol where were thronged the thousands who witnessed the Parade was any other part of that splendid pageant sos Nuch admired. Such a body of horse and horsemen gave to the event a splendor and dignity it must otherwise have lacked. This division appeared in the marching order As Quot troop a of Cleveland Quot and acted As the personal escort of the president. When troop a was honoured by an invitation to act As a body guard to the president on inauguration Day the question of the most suitable mounts became a matter of Tho first importance and the services of capt. J. B. Perkins a most accomplished rider and judge of horses were secured and he waa Given carte Blanche in the matter of Purchase. After several weeks of search and travel for the Moat part through the Blue grass Region of Kentucky. Or. Perkins succeeded in getting together without doubt the finest troop of horses Ever seen in one body. They were All Young High spirited and Moet of them unbroken to the Saddle but by holding each trooper responsible for the training of the mount assigned him the project was made a great Success. Each horse received a new name beginning with the letter a. And each rider was fully satisfied that his horse was the finest in the troop. President Mckinley was so much pleased at the appearance of the troop that he wrote Captain Burdick a personal letter of thanks and congratulation. The management of the Culver military Academy at Lake Maxlyn Tuckee ind., a school founded and endowed by or. H. H. Culver a wealthy and philanthropic Claisen of St. Louis wishing to have every department of that school Complete and convinced that a cavalry troop would be of great advantage to the cadets secured the services of an expert instructor and authority on Riding and horsemanship and ordered him to Purchase the finest troop of cavalry horses that could be found. The Fame of the Black horse troop suggested a solution to the problem of the Purchase of the cavalry equipment determined upon and the representative of the school was Given authority to negotiate for As Many of these Black horses As were suitable for Cadet cavalry. Riding became famous. The Riding of the cadets be Cam famous and they received Many invitations to give Public drills. Upon the occasion of the grand army Encampment at Richmond ind., on May 12, is and 14, the Cadet cavalry troop was invited to act As military escort to governor mount. The invitation was accepted and the cadets Riding was a great feature of the Parade eliciting most flattering newspaper comments and general Praise from the Public. The governor was so Well pleased with the efficiency and conduct of the Cadet that be made the entire troop honorary members of to staff and wrote colonel Fleet the superintendent of the Culver Academy a most flattering and complimentary letter. The governor also visited the Academy during the commencement exercises of the school attended by to staff and expressed both pleasure and Surprise at the extent of the Plant and the Quality of the work being done. The United Battee government Haa also recognised the Quality of the school s work and Haa detailed Cape j. Q. Adams formerly of the first cavalry. And one of the beet officers in the army As tactical officer at the school. The government has also supplied the school with All necessary military equipments and supplies. Or. Culver became imbued with the idea when founding and endowing a school for boys that it should be run in such a manner that a Complete education could be secured at a trifling Cost and at the same time make health a first consideration and the developing of the boy s better nature and the restraining of Hla tendencies in the wrong direction one of the fundamental objects of the school. No system he was convinced could equal the military if that system could be shorn of some of its most rigid features designed to govern incorrigible men. Instead of tender boys. Many of the military schools had proven failures in this regard the discipline and regulations being so severe that boys became hardened instead of refined rough and rebellious instead of gentle and submissive. These objections to the military school under the old system caused or. Culver to doubt the practicability of adopting such a system for one of his great themes to to be practical in All things and he has frequently been heard educate to say that an make a Man More tical education. But Ough investigation of systems and after most successful a he decided upon a such modifications military feature that All the advantages of and be safely Contr compelled to suffer ind _ blonds of upper class men or cruelty the hand of to cd does not it a prac to Thor to school with the the Day.

Philadelphia prox a Evangelina Betancourt Cisneros Young Beautiful and cultured to guilty of no Crit save that of having in her veins Tho Best blood in Cuba. This True daughter of the revolution has Boon tried by a military tribunal at Havana on the charge of rebellion after a hideous imprisonment of nine months in a jail filled with the vilest women of Havana. There to nothing a galust the blackened Sweet faced Young girl except that she was in the Isle of Pines when a outbreak of cuban prisoners occurred. A and that she to the Niece of president1 Cisneros y Betancourt who Heads the civil government of the rebels in the Jungles ofe Camaguey. No woman prisoner has Ever been sent to this african Bell. It to just across from Gibraltar on the Morocco coast with a desert scoured by wild moors behind it and the Atlantic Ocean before it. With great care it has been arranged by1 the spaniards that the penal nope Laton shall consist of nearly equal us to the worst and lowest criminals of Spain and political exiles. Doctors lawyers and literary men of Havana break Stone and shovel in the trenches shoulder to shoulder with murderers rav Shere and robbers from the Peninsula. They work in chains keeping entire silence. A single word brings the Lathi of the guard Down on the offender and when his Day s work on the stuns pile is done he i treed up in the prison Yard and flogged till he faints. They Are tog on food that has become foul under the fearful heat of the african Sun and they Are tortured with All the ingenuity and ferocity of the inquisition at the pleasure of their guards and governors whenever anything goes wrong at the prison of which they May have knowledge. Convicts for of Arlo a their guards in Many instances a convicts who Are More brutal if possible. Than the soldiers. These guards a held to no accounting for the Uve of their charges. Every traveler who a bribed to Way to a sight of the Noor wretches to lung at Ceuta has remarked the dried blood on the faces and in the hair of the prisoners. They Are housed in cells Cut in the Damp Rock crowded in like steers in a cattle car. Thelt food to cast in through the bars As the animals at the zoo Are fed. They can not even Wash their hands and faces let alone Bathe. Cultivated scholarly men who know As much of civilisation and Comfort and clean Linen a the average clubman of new York have been kept to for years. There Are prisoners there who have been undergoing this treatment Ever since the ten years War and that Strug go for cuban Freedom was crushed thirty years ago. The backs of nearly All the prisoners Are scarred and cries crossed. The punishment for every transgression to the lash and it is As much a transgression to faint at your work in Ceuta As to refuse to do it. This to the place to which poor Evangelina Cisneros to to be sent she was born to wealth. Her Uncle was a Marquis her Mother a handsome aristocrat. Brain has not progressed to the Point of considering a prisoner a human being. 1 when the delicate girl was arrested she was cast in the prison in Havana for vicious women. She had been visiting her father in the Isle of Pines when is was taken prisoner and was there when an encounter occurred among the captive. With other respectable cuban women she was thrown into this jail of outcasts most of them coloured women of such a Grade that they were too Low to be allowed on the streets of Havana which in As tolerant of sell women a a Eny City in the world. Probably no Young girl has been subjected to such scene As this one saw in modern times. The Harri dans enraged at the refusal of the gentle cuban women to mix with them rioted several times and attacked the unfortunate ladles. The youth and Beauty of Evangelina particularly incensed them and she narrowly escaped injury at their hands. The girl to no Amason to take the chances of War like a Soldier she is Little More than a child in years Dell Meta and educated. She to not even a conspirator. If Spain must have her a a victim it would be better for the girl to be stood against a Stone Wall and shot to death than to be condemned to Twenty year of such hideous Sham and slavery As the prosecutor has asked for her.
