The result of the Swayne impeach-
r ment trial has been qltoe general com-
mented upon in the Democratic prs,
North and South, but the Republican
newspaper appear to have msintind
a discreet if not significant silence on
the subject.
The New York World editorially re-
marks as follows: "Judge wayne was
f: impeached for 'high crimes d misde-
I menor,' but the Senate seems to have
S voted on the question of his politics.
It is extraordinary that the evidence
should have convinced all the Demo-
crats that Swayne wasgulty and nearly
all the Republicans that he was not
guilty. Judging from the vcte, some
thirty-odd Sinators wished to convict
Swayne of being a Repubican andabout
'* fifty Senators wished to acquit him of
being a Democrat. To tate that this
leavage long party lines was unfortu-
0 nate is to statethe cas mildly."
f The World also sums upthe result in
the following schedule of vital preced-
ents which it claims have been estab-
lished by the Senate's verdict:
1. That a federal judge is licensed to
accept a private car from a railroad
placed in his charge by the appointment
of a receiver and ride everywhere with-
out coat to himself.
2. That such official may charge the
government $10 a day for expenses, re-
gardleasof what hfi actual expenses
Ynay have been.
8. That his place of residence is a mat-
r r of his own choice, despite the statute
erectingg that a federal judge must live
In his district.
4. That a federal judge may punish
his political opponents, if he can confine
operations to proceedings in con-
The Atla'ta Constitution says: "T he
Swayne crse has been decided, but it
wil be some time before the odor has
The Lusville Evening Poet says:
"The verdict in the Swayne impeach-
ment case is not guilty with a strong
hi it that he musn'tdo it again."
The Savannah News mildly comments
as follows: "It may be that because so
many judges do what Judge Swayne
was charged with doing in the matter
of expense that the Senate refused to
hold him guilty. And it may be that
because so many high officials go on
junketing trips at the expense of the
railroads that it decided the accused
wasn't so very culpable for using the
S private car of a corporation that was in
the hands of a receiver and was in a
S position to request favors from him.
S f course it would be hardly ust to say
that Judge Swayne's usefulness as the
judge of the district court of the north-
ern district of Florklda is at an end, but
it is certain that the majority of the
people of that district haven't a kindly
feeling for him, and would be glad if
the government would give him a job
elsewhere. He may resign but there
isn't much probability that he wilL
That there was a political feeling min
the decision there isn't any doubt. A
glance at the way the Senators of the
two parties voted shows that.
The Brunswick Journal "quite agree
with the Atlanta Journal that the ac-
| uittal of Judge Swayne by the lepub-
ica is of the Unit Stted s Senate, isI
S e putting of a distinct sea of ap-
oval on official graft. We also think
grants full letters of marque and re-
S sal to an already autocratic federal
Sudicary, bloated with the arrogance of
fe-tenure, and feeling the safety of
judicial immunity from any possible de-
ense of rebuke by the people "
The Buffalo, N. Y. Enquirer editor-
lly remarks as follows: "That the
lot of the arpet-bagger not always
pleasant is shown inhe experience of
S ge 8wayne of Florida, whoee im-
Spechment trial was ended yesterday
by decision in the Judge s favor.
from the North and carrying with
him he rabid artisanship whi ch ar
aeteris the as conservative of the
Republican omce-holders, Judge Swayne
should not have been surprised that his
airs and his methods did not sceord with
the sentiment of the southerners. It is
pr sd that he was too arbitrary too
!eMadent to please the southern dea
ofw t should constitute a Just Judge.
Very naturally, the vote in the senate
te y was along strict partliam,.
and the t is not at at surpr.ing.

Senate de credit for consistency.

Charles Swyne, just tried In Impeach-

Monday lat of all charge against him
by a ty vote. They w proven

DeLand News: When one considers
to what depths poltis have sunken in
this country and how the country and
the ordinary citizen is exploited for the
benefit of railroad, steamboat and other
corporations, he must marvel at what
the country will stand. It is able to
withstand this enormous exploitation
only because of its natural resources,
which are gradually being depleted,
No one who knows anything about pres-
ent conditions is at all surprised at the
acquittal of 8wayne by the Senate.
It i only a continuation of the "sys-
tem's" exploitation. The system is
taking care of its children.
A political verdict, in every sense,
was the decision of the United States
Senate in the case of Judge Charles
Swayne. The fact that the judge is a
Republican and that he was appointed
by a Republican President outweighed
with the Repnblican majority of the
Senate every consideration of guilt or
innocence, as developed by the testi-
Gaineville Star: Standard Oil Rock-
efeller's United States Senate, in vin-
dicatin Judge S8wayne of the charges
made by the House, made such a miser-
able failure in their work of whitewash-

judicial ermine u brazen and conspicu-
ous a ever, that the veriest dauber will
fall to pronounce that body expert
Ocala Banner: If this had been seme
poor devil instead of a man wearing the
udical ermine of the country there
would be little question about his con-
viction. It seems impossible for mem-
bers of a political party, notwithstand-
ing the oath they take to rise above
their partv amillaio. Andrew John-
on, who had offended his party though
he had ee iguty of no oreu known
to outlaws, aely escaped conviction
for "high crimes and mdem nors."
The commission that sat in the cele-
brated Tlden-Hayes case composed of
members of the wureme court and
members of the Senate and House of
Representatives, supposed to be the
most exalted men in the nation, east
their vote strictly on party ins. No
member of the commission was able to
vote contrary to the dictates of his
arty. So it Is with the ease of Swayne.

The lartow Itoarier-Informant in-
dulges In the following rather caustic
comment upon Governor Broward's Ev-
erglade drainage scheme:
That hobby of a forlorn hope which
landed Mr. Broward in the executive
chair- the drainage and saving to the
State of the Everglades-is waxing fat
and arrogant, and bids fair to take up
a large portion of the time of the Leg.
islature, possibly to the detriment of far
more important business. Already the
State funds are being liberally used that
the Governor and his cabinet may take
junketing trips of inspection. To what
end no one knows. Were it not a mat-
ter of public concern, the sublime confi-
dence and egotism of this board of trus-
tees of the internal improvement fund
would be a subject for laughter. Se-
renely it passes judgment andgivesopin-
ions off-hand upon questions which would
puzzle experienced civil engineers, and
the gullible public swallows the unbaked
dose as though it were a mass of taffy.
l'robably thn-re is no way to check this
I':verglade drainage fad, but the Legis-
lature shou lact with common stinse and
r,'e'train the governor r from all action
teccp' by thtL advice of an expert en-
iinvering comrnirision.
Neither th ('ouurier-Informant nor any
timid citiz n need fear that Governor
low'.rd will nteedl ti 1, restrained from
hasty or ill-:,lvie'dl action in the prem-
i-,-<. ,No oe':', perhaps, realzl.s more
fllly than hlte does. the enormous magni-
tiude of the' dratin:'i.e project which he
w\o,,uil i1l dly -re inaugurated, at least,
diriri his ilnihinistration. And the Leg-
I: I.l it' ur iimay t'erelied uIipon to view the

It would maha a urloos book if the
adventures f th* oluntners who went
to South Afriae to fight for the Boers
could be eolloeted and published. The
case of some oL these m were real-
ly pathetlw Many of them were left
without, sas to return to America.
A ooalsrable number went to
Louene Marques In Portuguee terrl-
tory, a m erably poor, unprogressve
colony. A good many made their way
northward Into German Bast Africa,
where some settled as colonists, and
others roved about for a while as hunt-
ers and explorers.
Among the latter was a young
Scotch-Irishman, Norval McClure by
name, who hailed from New Jersey,
near Newark. In company with a
German botanist, named Ludwig
Preuss, and an Arab raise (captain) of
a dhow, or coasting vessel, McClure
went prospecting in the Livingstone
mountains, where they one day dis-
covered a vast cave.
S To reach the entrance of the cavern,
they scaled the smooth face of a cliff,
oy means of a rude ladder thirty feet
long, which they improvised from
poles and tough vines.
jf The opening was a nearly circular
hole, seven or eight feet in diameter,
and led back Into solid rock for about
sixty feet. At the farther end of this
singular natural corridor they came to
a vast, dark room, which gave back
portentous echoes to their voices. Mc-
Clure, who had brought up a few
spllnts of dry, resinous wood, now
made use of them as torches. The
first large room was fifty-one paces
in length by twenty-two is width; and
the roof was so lofty as mot to be
visible by the light of the smoky
The most Interesting feature here
was the presence, nearly iridway, of
two enormous carved stones which
may onee have served as altars for
prehistoric religious rites. Pottery
shards were also found scattered about
the floor, which was so uniformly
smooth as to suggest that it had been
made so by human labor.
Passing on from i...s room by an
arched aperture at the farther end,
tnry came into a succession of three
smaller low rooms, nearly lied with
recently formed stalactites hanging
like marble Icclles from the roof. It
was with difficulty that they were
able to creep through them and pau
When he had gone the little party
on to a drier and more open portion
of the cave. Here they went through
two other large halls, one of which
had eleven enormous stalactite la a
row like large Doric olamns, all
S stained dark red; the limewater was
probably Impregnated with oxide of

Next beyond this hall of the col-
umns, they came into the largest
apartment of all, ascending to it by a
curious stairway, wh',: beyond doubt,
had been fashioned by hdman hands.
Here the explorers felt a warmth In
k marked contrast to the chill of the
other portions of the cavern. As to
the sis or eutat of this apartment
they were una' to Judge, except
from the echoes; for the torches which
McClure had brought were now all
burned but two, which he held In re-
serve, ig finding the way out.
The Arab rals, however, proposed
that they should remain where they
were, Wlile he sent his servant. a

8Svral times as they had come
through the lofty room they had no-
tded low, snapping sounds, sacom-
paied by a vtgue stir as of living
creatures. It seemed to McClure. too,
that he caught glimpses of minute,
faintly shining points all about But
although the explorers frequently
topped to listen, they had determined
nothing with certainty.
The Arab captain now called out to
his servant to advance slowly and
mind his steps. But the Zanzibari,
being probably frightened, rushed to-
ward the sound of'their tolces, with
the result that a moment later he
fell headlong into one of the chasms
in the floor. As he went down he
uttered a frightful yell, and that
single loud cry appeared to act as a
note of invocation to all the uncanny
spirits of the cave.
Instantly there broke forth a chor-
us of wild, harsh shrieks, a snapping
and clacking as of a million jaws and
beaks, a strange, hoarse squeaking as
of ten thousand rusted hinges, and
a deafening burst of noise like rum-
bling thunder in subterranean vaults
The three explorers, who had start-
ed to hasten to Cufe's assistance, were
suddenly overborne and pushed bodily
backward down the steep descent to-
ward the hole by a rushing torrent
of furry bodies and madly flapping
wings. It was only by the utmost
exertion of their strength, lying face
downward and clutching at crevices
and angles of the rocky floor of the
passage, that they saved themselves
from being carried, out at the hole
and hurled Into the abyss below.
The strange winged creatures were
bata, as large as barn fowls, of a spe-
cies hitherto undescribed. (Cufe's
torch, or his shriek as he fell, had
startled them from their roosting
places on the walls and roof of the
ave, and set them flying out. For
more than twenty minutes the out-
wad flight of the bats continued
without abatement.
The men dared not stir or lift their
heads, since the flying bodies were
constantly hurtling past so close as
to graze them.
The living torrent slackened after a
time and gradually ceased. Then Mc-
Clure and his two compaaions made
their way cautiously back into the
large, dark room from whith the bats
had emerged, shouting to Cufe. Ob-
taining no answer, they lighted their
last splint and made hasty search for
him. The narrow chasm Into which
he had fallen looked very deep.
Again and again they shouted, but
got no response. They dared not
linger lest they should be lost in the
darkness of the cavern; they beat a
hasty retreat, reaching the first of the
lofty rooms Just as the splint was
consumed. From this room they had
literally to grope their way to the en-

tainside. But they at last procured
another armful )f splints and re-en-
tered the cave, to renew the search
for the missing Zangtbarl. The chasm
proved to be very deep. Splints
dropped into it fell sheer down for
forty or fifty feet. The explorers were
unable to find Cufe, who had undoubt-
edly been killed outright.--Youth's

A New Boys' Clu.
Under the auspices of that excellent
publication, The American Boy, of De-
troit, Mich., Mrs. J. Ernest Yonge has
succeeded in organizing for the young
lads of Tallahassee a boys' club, to be
known as the Seminole Club, devoted to
the mental, r.,oral and physical improve-
met of its members. The membership
and officers are as follows:
Mrs. J. Ernest Yonge, patroness; Miss
Angelica Yonge, mascot; Masters aurie
Perkins captain: John Cay, vice cap-
tain Robert Shackleford, secretary;
Wallce Quarterman, treasurer* J. Er-
nest Yonge, business manager; dward
Chesey, Howard GambleMosley Col-
lins, verett C. Lewis, Sinclair Wells,
Leslie Wells, members.
The club is preparing two fine lawn
tenno courts on the Shepard lot, on
North Monroe street, and will arrange
for other athletic sports.
Nothing that could be devised will
contribute so largely to the intellectual
and moral well-being'of the Tallahassee
youth as will this excellent movement,
and it should have the approval and
hearty co-operation of every resident of
the Capital City.

The Balkcom Drug Company moved
into the Lively corner building the first
of the year, cleaned things up and made
extensive improvements. Then L. E.
Cohen rented the old Balkeom stand
and had it thoroughly overhauled and
put in a stock of drugs and fancy ar-
ticles, and all this caused the Hartdee-
Smith Co. to get a hustle on themselves
and they had a thorough overhauling
,nd Axing up. Now comes our enter-
prising druggist, D. k. Cox, who does
not propose to be outdone, and he is
going them all one better. Taldahassee
now nw as neat and attractive drug

The influence of newspaper advertis-

ing is wonderfuL It turns the tide of
business toward the advertised store as
nothing else will. It puts the name of
the store so strongly in the minds of
the people that they cannot think of dry4
goods, clothing, shoes or drugs without
te name of tat advertised store com-
ing into their minds simultaneously.

The following athetle secount of
theil na d e lMiar whb'h occurred
t aturday near Sanderson is en-
d-d tfroa theM odmn of the Jack-
Mromvfl Times-Umn of Sunday
he wrecked train was N. which
dt here at 9:0 for Tallahasee, River
JwUtioni Panscoo and New Orleans.
Th train consisted of mail ear, express
ear baggage car three day coaches
ad twoulman skeping cars. Evr
t in the two loprs was occpied
Bpop going to New Orleans to at-
ad the Mard u celebration. The
day coaches were also well filled with
T inwas going at a good speed
when it reached te switch of the sid-
ing, about five hundred yards eat of
the depot at Sa nde A freight train
was standing on the sidirg with the en-
gine headed toward the twich.
Into the open switch the engine of
the pasnger train tan, and although
Enneer Cter shut off steam and ap
plied the brakes and then attempted to
reverse the engine, the distance be-
tween the two engines was too abort
and the paseer eine crashed into
the heavy freight %enne.
The shock of the collision was terrific
and the two engines were completely
wrecked, but neither turned over. The
engineer and fireman of the passenger
engine were caught in the cab and
pinned down by the timbers of the cab
and the cab rods and frame work of the
engines. Neither the engineer nor fire-
man of the freight train engine were in'
the cab of that engine when the collision
occurred, and therefore escaped injury.
When the two engines came together
the sudden sto' of the engine caused
the United States mail car immediately
behind to crash ioto the tender, and the
front end of the mail car was complete-
ly demolished.
In the front end of the mall car Rufus
E. Bas, the mail clerk n charge, was

at work, and as the frame of the car
was smashed in he was caught beneath
the timbers ard his life was instantly
crushed out.
Near the center of the car Mail Clerk
Joseph M. Ripley was at work, and
while the crash threw him nearly to the
end of the car, he was not hurt other
than a few bruises and wa one of the
first to get to ,ork to extricate Engi-
neer Carter and Mail Clerk Bass.
Under the wreck of the locomotive cab
Engineer Carter and Fireman Smith
were pinned, and it was a half hour or
more before they could be released, and
then only through the hardest kind
of work with axes and crowbars. One
of Engineer Carter's legs was cut
off by ne iron work of the engine, and
he was also badly cut and bruised in nu-
merous places.
Fireman Smith was also caught be-
neath the engine, and in addition to be-
ing badly mashed was scalded by. the
escaping steam.
Rufus E. Bass, the dead mail clerk,
boarded at No. 226 Florida avenue, in
this city. He was a native of Marion
county, South Carolina, and was very
popular with all who knew him. Dur-
ing the Spanish-American war. Mr.
Bass enlisted in the United States aimy,
and was with the troops that pmtici-
pated in the battle of San Juan hill and
the attack on the city of Santiago.
After the war he was mustered out of
the service and entered the railway mail
His body will be sent to Latter, S. C.,
this morning over the Seaboard Air
Line, and will be accompanied by Postal
Clerk Van Winkle of the railway mail
George Carter, the engineer who was
killed, lived in Tallahassae, and was one
of the oldest and most highly thought-
of engineers on the Seaboard. In Jack-
sonville he boarded at No. 940 West Bay
street. He leaves a wife, who lives in
Tallahasee, and is said to be quite ill at
the present time. [His body arrived at
Tallahassee Sunday morning, and the
funeral services took place from the ree-
idence, Rev. J. W. Bigham officiating,
attended by a large number of relatives
and trends of the family.]
Fireman Smith was so badly injured
that it was not deemed advisable to
move him at once, and he was left at
Sanderson until 10.10 o'clock last night,
when he was brought here and taken to
the emergency hospital.
The cause of the switch being left
open is being rigidly investigated by the
railroad officials, and If the blame i.
placed it is possible that the guilty party
will be prosecuted for crimlnau ngli-
gence. Of course, it is possible tat
the engine 'split" the switch, and no
one is to blame.
