dress is not a flowery production by any
means but it baa more good sound sense
in it for it length of any publio docu-
ment emanating from any occupant oi

ham Lincoln. Mr. McKinley has his
ideas about what the country needs and
tells them in a way that all may under
stand. He has the courage of his con
victions and docs not hesitate to call an
extra session of congress to carry them
into effect. "Tho paramount duty of
coDgreif is to stop deficiencies by tbc re
storation of that protective legislation
which has always been the firmest prop
of the treasury" is the keynote of his

many candidates in tho field and I
hesitated long before entering the race
but now I am in it to stay. My views
on lovo and matrimony havo often been
expressed in your hearing and I need
not repeat them here. You know I
favor the gold standard of love and a
maintenance of that standard after
If you decide to confer upon mo the
honor I speak of pleaso fix a date far a
caucus with your mother. I have no
objection of ber acting as temporary
chairman provided it is clearly under-
stood that I am to be chairman of the
permanent organization. Should the res
suit of the caucus prove satisfactory we
can soon hold the primaries and select

Kfftcts of a Change.
A change of administration has been
followed instantly by a change in the
manner of Spanish dealings with Amer-
icans resident in Cuba. Thcro was uo
hectoring tone in the President's inaug-
ural message; neither was there any uncertainty.-
He announced a foreign pol
icy that;was to be friendly to all nations
but thai was to be firmly assertive of all
tho rights of citizens of tho United
Fivo days after the inauguration of
President McKinley Sylvester Scovel
who had lain in a Spanish prison ia
Cuba was released. Thero were two
sides to the Scovel case President
Cleveland had listened to and accepted
the Spanish side President McKinley
espoused the American 6idc. Clcve
land always gave the benefit ofthedoabt
to tbc oppressor and to tho monarch.
Always President McKinley may be ex
pected to resolve the doubt in favor of
the patriot and of the citizen of this re-
public. Inter Ocean.
Greeks Arc Called to Arms.
St. Louis Mo. March 13. D. Jan
nahoulo Greek Consul at St Louis to-
day received a cablegram from tbc Gre-
cian Minister of Foreign Affairs urging
reserves in this country to comply with
the royal order calling to arms the re
serves of 1865 to 1893.
Immediately upon the receipt of this
the Consul issued an appeal to all the
Hellenes in this territory to apply to
him and make arrangements for trans-
portaion to Greece. Simultaneously
with this call to arms tho Consul issued
a notice for a mass meeting of sympa
thizers with Greece (o be held Monday
evening at Exposition Hall.
The Consul says: "This call means
war; of that I have no doubt. Nothing
now can prevent a clash between Grecian
and Turkish arms."
New York March 13. Sixty-thice
Greeks left today for Crete. Three
hundred more are prepared to leave San
Francisco withiB a week and another
party of 100 from Now York is due to
Bail next Thursday. Altogether 700
Greeks are booked to sail by April 1st.
On Sunday last three large expeditions
from the United States landed in Cuba
for the insurgents 250.000 rounds of
ammunition 2000 rifles six rapid-fire
guns threo tons of dynamite 300
machetes and 1000 hand grenades.
The Cubans declare tbey can win in-
dependence in anothor year and will
make no compromise nothing but in
dependence will satisfy them. The
insurgents have been victorious in almost
every engagement lately acd are push
ing the figbting at every point. The
Spanish troops are still murdering women
and children. At Benjucal recently
over thirty women were assaulted and
about 20 small boys wero killed. Wey.
ley has just issued an order stating that
all women who have friends in the army
must be arrested and sent to other points
hoping in this way to distract the insur-
gents. The order has caused hundreds
of outrages and the prisons everywhere
are crowded with women. Gomez is
organizing a large army and it is feared
by the Spanish that ho will attack
Havana Tho Spanish troops are uneasy
and discontented on account of the
scarcity of supplies and some threaten
to leave the Island. The arrears now
due them will exceed 846000000 and
there is not a cent of good money in
A. War Blast From Mexico.
Now comes a blast of war from Mex-
ico. Three Americans from Boston
have made our Mexioan neighbors or
some of them "fighting mad."
These three Bostoniaux Bruce Stone
and Pierce are visiting the neighboring
republic it seems for the purpose of
B.-gotialio;; with tbo Mexican govern
ment tor tho return of sonio flags cap-
tured from our troops during tho war of
The newspaper editors and others
down in the adjoingng country regard
this as an exceedingly impudent and iu
solent performance and they aro all
aflame about it. As dispatch from Gau
dalajara states that they aro using "mosl
incendiary language going so far to dc
mand of the United States at the can
non's mouth iftocceesarya return of all
the territory taken from -Mexico." They
specify California ' Colorado Nevada
Utah Arizona New Mexico and Texas
as the property stolen from Mexico."
It is a trifle cool to ask Mexico for
those trophies. Wo cortainly did take
a great deal of property from that coun-
try at tho time of the war of 1847
though Texas came to us at another
time and not exactly by conquest Con
sideling what wo got by that war wo
can very wtll afford to let Mexico keep
those flags if she wants them.
But there is no need of flying into a
passion about it. Mexico has the flags
and she can dcclino to part with them.
We aro not going to send an army down
there and try to take them by force.
They are not worth tho life of one man.
As for demanding all the territory we
took from Mexico that is a very serious
business. Our wrathful neighbor! must
bear in mind that a great many people
now occupy that territory who are not
Mexicans but who if they were at
tached to the neighboring republic
would be likely to insist in taking a more
active part in the government of that
country than would be agreeable to the
natives of the present domain. '
No brethren wo cannot entertaia the
proposition to part with so much ground
and so many people even though they
are a little crazy just now on the subject
of silver; no not even at the cannon's
mouth. Chicago Chronicle.
The Cornstalk. '
Edward Atkinson of Boston tells of
the new uses to which cornstalks may bo
put. The pith or cellulose can be used
for naval purposes while the stalk after
the pith is removed is made into the
most valuable food for stock. Cellulose
has been used for tho backing of armor
plate in ships and for tho protection of
such parts as cannot be covered with
heavy armor. Heretofore its expense
has been a serious obstacle to a very
extsnsive use of cellulose but the patents
for the utilization of cornstalks will bring
it into moro general use. A cellulose
belt threo feet in thickness will furnish
as much protection ns six inches thick-
ness of steel so that 100 tons of cellu
lose will furnish a ship as much pro-
tection as 1000 tons of armor. At the
samo time the cellulose-protected craft
cannot bo sunk. K. C. Journal.
