REVISION OF THE DUTIES IN
Washington. Sept. 22.—Assistant sec-
retary Howell, of the treasury depart-
ment, has modified, in an important
partkulur, the customs Regulations now
in force in the Philippine islands. Hith-
erto an export tax has been levied on
all goods shipped from the island to
foreign ports, and since the United
States took possession of Manila a cus-
toms duty has been ctaarged upon all
goods shipped to Manila from a port In
the Philippines not in the possession of
the United States. Hence merchandise
shipped from an interior port through
Manila to a foreign oountry pays both
some | a customs duty and an export tax. Un-
der the new regulations the customs
duty in such cases will be refunded.

OUATANAMO HEROES PASS THE
Washington. Sept, 22—The President
today reviewed from the portico of the
White House a detachment of about
too members of the marine corps which
served at Guatanamo during the war.
The marines had just arrived and they
marched direct to the executive man-
lion, headed by the marine band.
The President stood with bared head
as the bronzed heroes marched past,
bowing his head, waving his hat and
claplng his hands In turn. He seemed
much affected by the appearance of the
men who had demeaned themselves so
nobly during these trying days at the
front, where they constituted the only
American forces on Spanish soil. As-
sistant secretary Allen and the chiefs
of the various divisions of the navy de-
partment participated with the Presi-
dent in the review.

TEMPORARY ARRANGEMENT BE-
TWEEN IMPORTANT CITIES.
Washington, Sept. 22.—Information
received today by acting postmaster
general Heath Indicates that the tem-
porary organization of the postal sys-
tem in the important cities and towns
In Porto Rico, under United States au-
spices, will be in operation almost as
goon as the evacuation of the islands by
the Spaniards is completed.
Chairman James E. Stewart, of the
1. The republicans of Logan county
in convention assembled, hereby re-as-
sert their allegiance to, and pride in,
the record and principles of the repub-
lican party. No republican platform or
pledge was ever made which was not
fulfilled, to the greater prosperity and
happiness of the American people. In
the campaign of 1896, the republican
party said sound money was necessary
to national stability and prosperity.
The people, by a million and a half
majority, passed upon this question In
favor of sound money—and now we
have the stability and uniform pros-
perity promised by the republican
party. The same platform said a pro-
tective tariff and reciprocity were
necessary to the highest welfare of the
people and as a cure for peace bond
issues and democratic treasury deficits j
—and now we see the greatest exports j
and smallest proportionate Imports in
the nation's history and the treasury
so full that already the old democratic
cry is heard, "what will you do with
the surplus?"—something the country
was never troubled with under demo-
2. Hard times, paralysis of business,
low wages, low prices for farm prod- | an>' arrangement
ucts, public soup houses for the poor,
a depleted public treasury, and in-
creased bonded indebtedness of the
government In times of peace, are the
Inevitable results of a democratic ad-
ministration. Experience has demon-
strated that the republican party la
the only party capable of properly
managing and controlling the great
financial and business affairs and pol-
icies of this government.
3. We endorse the wise and states-
man-like policy of President McKlnley,
in war and peace, as embodying the
most exalted patriotism, the most
beneflcient statesmanship, and the
4. Wo rejoice that at the call of hu-
manity the valor pf the American
soldier and the grandeur and unity and
strength of our country have been
firmly established at home and abroad,
giving this nation first place in Inter-
national consideration and diplomacy,
and driving Spanish cruelty and sov-
ereignty from the West lndeas and the
5. We express our admiration of the
courage and bravery of the Oklahoma
rough riders and their associates on the
field at Santiago, and point to them as
samples of the rugged and loyal citi-
zenship of Oklahoma.
6. We commend the bravery of the
9th and 10th cavalry at Santiago, as
evidence of the valorous loyalty of
the colored citizens of the United
7. We are for keeping the flag of this
union on every foot of foreign soil won
by the blood and heroism of our
soldiers In the Spanish-American war,
and opposed to receding one tithe from
the demands of the peace protocol. We
are opposed rto hauling down the
American flag anywhere its folds may
be rightfully spread, that the world
may have the effect of our exalted
civilization and superior education and
8. We are for liberal invalid and ser-
vice pensions for the survivors of the
rebellion and for the proper recognl-
t.cn of the bravery and self-sacriflc
of our soldiers in the war with Spam.
9. We endorse the present territor-
ial and federal administrations of Ok-
lahoma and everything in the national
republican platform of 1896, and the
territorial platform of 1898.
10. We endorse the republican ad-
ministration of Logan county, as eco-
nomic, competent and thoroughly re-
publican—as the fulfillment of the
pledges of the party in this county, and
careful of the interests and rights of
11. We are for a uniform assess-
ment of the property of the people,
and an amendment of the equalization
laws so all property will be assessed at
actual cash value, as now provided by
law, and make impossible and unnec-
essary any raise of the aggregate
12. We pledge the enthusiastic en-
ergies of the republicans of Logan
county to the election of Hon. D. T.
Flynn, and to the cause of free homes
and statehood, of which he is the able
exponent. We declare his election at
this time to be of more importance to
the homesteader and citizens generally
than any other issue before the people

convention to economic, Just and sup-
erior county government, and put them
before the people as the representatives
of a party which always stands re-
sponsible for the acts of Its partisans
