The President May Call For Volunteer
to Serve In the Philippine..
Washington May 30. The
cabinet at its next meeting will
probably consider the question of
calling for volunteers for service
in the Philippines. The situation
in the islands is not such as is de-
sired. The diplomacy and peace com-
mission it is admitted here failed
and must take back seats until the
enemv is completely whipped.
Otis has not sufficient men to ac-
complish this end. -Including 7-
000 troops now on the way to the
Philippines Otis has only 25000
regular troops under his command

rendered such good service are to

rather than that of the public.

WILL SWEEP OUT DEMOCRATS..
President McKlnley Amends the Civil
Service RulesAll Rraache. Affected
The civil service order issued by
the president recently means the
early decapitation of at least 4000
democrats now holding government
positions. Ever sinco the prestnt ad
ministration came in power the pres
ident has been besieged by the place
hunters and spoilsmen to let down
Led by Senator Hanna chairman
of the republican national committee
the spoilsmen made a flgbt in con-
gress for the repeal of the entire civil
service law. Defeated there they
besieged the White House. The
president held out for some time but
finally capitulated to Senator Hanna
who insisted that the party workers
could not be held in line unless they
were given patronage and the only
way to get it was to exempt places
under the civil service law. The se-
ries of amendments to the civil ser-
vice rules take out of the classified
civil service about 4000 offices. The
amendments also provide that here-
after thousands of appointments to
positions in the executive depart-
ments shall b? made on tests of fit-
ness prescribed by the heads of these
departments iustead of the civil
The government printing office is
not withdrawn from the operation
of the civil service act and rales. It
remains within the classified service.
It is maintained by the advocates
of civil service reform that by this
President McKinley has taken a long
step backward toward the spoil sys-
tem. It is claimed that the compe-
tition system on which the civil ser-
vice act and the civil service rules
rest has been seriously undermined.
It is the intention of the republi-
cans to get possession of these places
at the earliest practicable time and
democrats included in the list of ex
ceptions are to be swept out of office

Governor Promises Help.
A special from Austin Tex. says
Governor Sayers is determined to
use every means in his power to
bring tha guilty parties charged with
the lynching of James Humphries
and his two sons to justice. With
this end in view he wired the county
attorney of Henderson county to-
night as follows:
''County Attorney Athens Tex.
I have directed Assistant Attorney-
General N. B. Morris to proceed to
Athens to assist you in the investi-
gation of the ljnching in Henderson
county and the immediate prosecu-
tion of those charged with the crime.
"JOSETH I). SAYEKS
There are several parties under ar-
rest on suspicion of being implicated
in the deed and no effort will be
spared to bring the offenders to jus-
tice. "What's in a name?" The word
"bitters" does not always indicate
something harsh and disagreeable.
Prickly Ash Bitters is proof of this.

lates the system thoroughly yet it
is so pleasant the most delicate
stomach will not object to it. Sold

on his way to his church shot John
Anderson a mine boss last uight.

keeper and other mine officials and

ment about doctrines. A dispute
arose and Henson it is said called
Anderson a liar. Anderson knocked
him down with a hammer. While
Hen ion was down he drew his
pistol and fired at Anderson the
ball taking effect in his back. Hen-
son did not preach last nigiit but
employed the time in escaping.
Cubans Accept the Cash.
A special from Havana says: "The
payment of the Cuban soldiers con-
tinued today 114 accepting payment.
It looks now as if the opponents of
Uomez and the Americana will not
be able to bold the men in line to
refuse the American offer. The
change is partly attributed to the
appearance or the soldiers with
money among their comiades and
friends thereby inducing them to
accept the payment. Tomorrow the
payment begins in other places.
