A weak and puny child is badly hand-
icapped in the battle of life. It is iso-
lated from healthy enjoyments of
its little fellow beings. It cannot par-
take either of their play or their sturdy
work and progress in the world; its
whoie life is embittered by incapacity
and weakness.
Any woman who expects to become a
mother ought to know what Dr. Pierce's
Favorite Prescription will do both for
her own health and safety during her
time of trial and also to insure her in

and strength to the prospective little

Miss Horton, living about seven
miles northeast of Tallahassee, came
to the city yesterday on a shopping
trip. While here she lost her watch, a
ladies' double case gold watch, with a
long chain. Mr. J. G. Baum, a young
man living at Peck, found the watch.
V iien Mr. Baum picked up the time-
piece, a young negro, Windsor Pern,
Jr., stepped up and said:
"Say, mister, that is my wife's watch.
She just put it there to play a joke. on
The young man handed the watch
over to the negro, and walked off. He
took the precaution, however, to report
the occurrence to Chief of Police Bras-
well. About 2 o'clock yesterday after-
noon Miss Horton reported her loss to
the police. The chief at once went on
a hunt for Pern, and recovered the
watch. Miss Horton refused to pros-
ecute the negro.

Mrs. Ellen Harlison, of 300 Park ave.,
Kansas City, Mo., writes as follows:
"Our two children had severe attack
of whooping cough, one of them in par-
oxysm of coughing would often faint
and bleed at the nose. We tried every-
thing we heard of without getting re-
lief. We then called in our family doc-
tor who prescribed Foley's Honey and
Tar. With the very first does they be-
gan to improve and we feel that it has
saved their lives." Refuse substitutes.

Mrs. Malone, wife of Judge Malone,
died Wednesday afternoon at 3:30
o'clock at her home in Quincy, from
meningitis, after only a short illness.
Two surgical operations had been per-
formed on the sufferer, to no avail.
Jidge Malone was presiding over the
Jefferson county circuit court at Apa-
lachicola when the serious condition of
his wife was telegraphed him. He im-
mediately started for Quincy, but ar-
rived too late, as Mrs. Malone had al-
ready passed into the great beyond.
The deceased leaves a husband, one
son and three daughters, besides a host
of relatives and friends, to mourn her
loss. The bereaved family has the
sympathy of everybody in this judicial

For all kinds of sores, burns, bruises,
or other wounds, DeWitt's Witch Hazel
Salve is a sure cure. Skin diseases yield
to it at once. Never fails in caes of
piles. Cooling and healing. None gen-
uine but DeWitt's. Beware of counter-
feits. "I suffered for many years from
a sore caused by a gun shot wound in
my left leg," says A. S. Fuller, English,
Ind. "It would not heal and gave me
much trouble. I used all kinds of reme-
dies to no purpose until I tried DeWitt's
Witch Hazel Salve. A few boxes com-
pletely cured me."

In this connection, The Tallahas-
seean is requested to ask the people
of the county to write Capt. C. A.

to their views as to whether or not
they want the appropriation made. And
if they want it made, what article, or
articles, they will prepare for exhibi-

the State from an agricultural stand-
point-capable of making the very best
agricultural exhibit-and her best in-

be acquainted with the fact on all oc-
casions. Besides, we, as the capital

county of the State, have a prestige
that must be maintained. We, there-
fore, desires to go on record as in favor
of the appropriation.
By all means, gentlemen of Leon,
write Capt. Bryan at once (some time
before next meeting of the Board, any
way) giving your views. And be par-

state what articles you will prepare for

Just look around and see the prosper-

ought to have enough pride to push

do it this year.
"While speaking on this line, I wish
to congratulate The Tallahasseean for
its generous offer or prizes for the larg-
est watermelon and cantaloupe to be
left at its office this year. The prizes
ought to create a very wholesome riv-
alry among the farmers, and probably
will. Just keep stirring the matter, up
as you have in the past, and you will
get them interested after a while. The
Tallahasseean has been doing a good
work for Tallahassee and Leon county,
and is, in my opinion, the best paper
in the State."


Heard Before U. S. Court of Appeals at
iew Orleans.
A dispatcn from New Orleans on
Wednesday says that a case of more
than ordinary interest was argued in
the United States court of appeals in
this city. It was the application for
habeas corpus in behalf of Joseph
Thomas. Ben. W. Douglass and R. W.
Lewis, owners of turpentine works in
Florida, praying to be released from
the custody of the united States mar-
shal at Pensacola, who is holding them
in custody for alleged violation of the
United States statutes forbidding
"peonage," or involuntary servitude for
Hon. John Eagan, United States dis-
trict attorney, received an answer
from Acting Attorney General Hoyt,
saying substantially that "in reference
to the practice prevailing in turpentine
business to -old laborers in a State of
involuntary servitude, your course in
instituting proceedings for the arrest
and prosecution of the guilty parties is
fully approved, and you should pursue
proceedings with promptness and
vigor. Section 5,526. revised statutes
applies, and at all events it is the duty
of the United States authorities to test
the question and to enforce the law, if
applicable. Where the persons held
are aliens, the act will apply."
The three men now applying for ha-
beas corpus were indicted for conspir-
acy to return to a condition of peonage
certain persons by compelling them to
return to work. The accused are try-
ing to obtain Lheir-release.
The case was argued yesterday by
Attorney Tunison, of Pensacola, Fla.,
foe the relators; Judge John Eagan,
United States district attorney for the
State of Florida, and Judge W. W.
Howe, United States district attorney
for the eastern district of Louisiana,
representing the government officials.
The matter was taken under advise-
ment by the court.

"For ten years I had chronic bron-
chitis so bad that at times I could not
speak above a whisper," writes Mr.
Joseph Coffman, of Montmorenci, Ind.
"I tried all remedies available, but with
no success. Fortunately my employer
suggested that I try Fole,y's Honey and
Tar. Its effect was almost miraculous,
and I am now cured of the disease. On
my recommendation many people have
used Foley's Honey and Tar and always
with satisfaction."

The Lehr-Williams Comedy Co. has
been holding down the boards at the
ope-. house all this week. Good crowds
ha' greeted the performances every
nigut, and the company has made a
hit. I ne play Monday night is pro-
nounced by all who saw it "the best
ever seen in Tallahassee."
There are a number of histrionic
stars in the Lehr-Williams Company.
The repertoire embraces some of the
most popular plays before the Ameri-
can public, and the specialties intro-
duced between the acts are really good.
On Wednesday night Mr. Williams,
the leading man, was taken suddenly
ill during the second act of "The Wild
Rose," and a substitute had to be put
on to finish the play. Aside from this,
theater-goers have been highly pleased
with the character of the plays, as well
as the acting.
The play for tonight will be "Mixed
Pickles," and it is full of laugh-pro-
voking incidents from start to finish.

than all other cough sarums combined."

An Ingenious Treatment ny Which
Drunkards are Being Cured Daily
in Spite of Themselves.

No Noxious Doses. No Weakening of
the Nerves. A Pleasant'and Posi-
tive Cure for the Liquor Habit.

It is now generally known and understood
that Drunkenness Is a disease and not weak-
ness. A body filled with poison and nerves
completely shattered by periodical or '-on-
stant use of intoxicating liquors, requires an
anudote capable of neutralizing and eradi-
cating this poison, and destroying the crav-
ing for intoxicants. Sufferers may now cire
themselves at home without publicity or loss
of time from business by this wonderful
"HOME GOLD CURE." which has been per-
fected after many years of close study and
treatment of Inebriates. The faithful use
according to directions of this wonderful
discovery is positively guaranteed to cure
the most oustinate case, no matter how hard
a drinker. Our records show the marvelous
transformation of thousands of drunkards
into sober, industrious and upright men.
This remedy is in no sense a nostrum, but is
a specific for this disease only, and is so
skillfully devised and prepared that it is
thoroughly soluble and pleasant to the taste,
so that it can be taken in a cup of tea or
coffee without the knowledge of- the person

cures d(iseascs of the stomach and other

Supreme Court of Florida, January
Term, A. D. 1901.
Sarah A. Hart, plaintiff in error, vs.
Mary T. Cotten, defendant in error-
Escambia county.
Per curiam:
1. Under special rule 6, adopted by the
Supreme Court October 26, 1897, trans-
scripts upon writs of error in habeas
corpus cases must be made up and cer-
tified in accordance with the require-
ments of Circuit Court rule 103: and
where a transcript in such a case is not
certified in accordance with that rule
of error will be dismissed.
2. A judgment rendered in a habeas
corpus proceeding for the custody of a
child, reciting that the cause came on to
be heard upon the petition and answer
and upon testimony adduced by the re-
spl)ective parties, that the argument of
counsel was heard, and the cause con-
sidered by the court, that the court
finds that petitioner is the legal guar-
dian and entitled to the custody of the
infant, but tiat the testimony produces
a doubt whether petitioner has not con-
sumption, and therefore, whether her
health is not sucn as to endanger the
health of the infant by personal asso-
ciation, and ordering and adjudging
that the infant remain in the custody
of the respondent until the further or-
der of the court, to be made upon fur-

their application in the same cause by
the petitioner, is essentially interlocu-
tory in character, and not a final judg-
ment from which a writ of error lies
in behalf of respondent.
Writ of error dismissed.

Carter, J.:
1. The fact that the Judge of a Cir-

Insomnia, Sexual Impotency, and all
diseases resulting from Early Errors,
Later Excesses, Overwork or Worry,
which, if neglected, completely under-
mine the system, often resulting in In-

cult Court is the plaintiff, or for other
reason disqualified in a cause pending
in that court, in no manner affects the
power of the clerk of the court to per-
form the ministerial act of entering de-
faults proper to be entered because of
failure to plead within the time re-
quired by law, conferred on him by
statute; and a default so entered in
such g case by the clerk, tested in the
name of the judge as well as his own,
is valid.
2. If a motion to dismiss filed by the
defendant in an action at law within
the time allowed by the statute for fil-
ing a plea or demurrer be of such L
character that the plaintiff will be
justified in treating it as a nullity, he
may disregard it. and cause the clerk
to enter a default for failure to plead
or demur. but if the motion be not of
that character, no dafault can be en-
tered until the motion is disposed of.
3. An unverified motion to dismiss
in behalf of both defendants in an ac-
tion at law against two, one of whom
has been duly served with process in
the county where the suit is instituted,
the grounds of such motion being that
the court has no jurisdiction over the
defendants therein, that the cause of
action did not accrue in such county,
that neither defendant resides in said
county, that there is nothing local in
the action that gives the court jurisdic-
tion, filed on the return day of the sum-
mons. where there is nothing in the
record tending to show that the last
three grounds of the motion are true,
may be treated as a nullity by the
plaintiff. anl if no plea or demurrer is
filed on the n,,xt rule day after the iil-
ing of such motion, a default for want
of plea or demurrer may be entered
notwithstanding such motion is then
on file.
4. WhNi'r a def,.-idant appears spec-
ially f:)'. th', uii;-;rpo- of presenting the
question of jurisdiction of the court
over hi. person, he must restrict his
m;)tion to) 1he gr.-ound of s,''h jurisdic-
tion, andt must not inciiude th-,rein
some other ground that recognizes the
jurisdiction of the court over his per-
son, and amounts to an appearance in
the cause by him, and if he does so the
motion will be held to be a general ap-
pearance.notwithstanding the fact that
it purports to be made in nursuance of
a special appearance.
5. A motion made in pursuance of a
special appearance entered in a cause
by a party not served, asking the dis-
missal of the cause upon the ground
that the court has not acquired juri?
diction over his person, and also upon
the ground of personal privilege to be
sued in another county, recognizes the
jurisdiction of the court over the per-
son of the mover and amol nts to a gen-
eral appearance on his prt.
6. Under section 1034 Rqv. Stats., mo-
tions to open defaults pmrperly enter-
ed, in order to permit thd party in de-
fault to plead, must be 4nade within
sixty days after the entir of the de-
fault, or at the next tern of the court
if one intervenes betweery the entry of
the default and the expiration of said
period of sixty days.
Judgment affirmed.

FRIDAY" APRIL 4, 1902.

aiiButsin rRome.

years from the period of my last
t to Cedarville, I found myself'ap-
ching that quiet village again.
the church spire came in view, and
after house became visible, here
d there, standing out in pleasant re-
against the green background of
s and fields, all the exciting inci-
ts which rendered my last visit so
morable, came up fresh in my mind.
was yet thinking of Willy Hammond's
dful death, and of his broken-
earted mother, whose life went out
ith his, when the stage rolled by their
Id homestead. Oh, what a change was
ere! Neglect, decay, and dilapidation
ere visible, let the eye fall where it
would. The fences were down, here
d there; the hedges, once green and
cely trimmed, had grown rankly in
me places, but were stunted and dy-
ing in others; all the beautiful walks
ere weedy and grass-grown, and the
i-borders dead; the garden, rainbow-
hued in its wealth of choice and beau-
I flowers when I first saw it, was ly-
ing waste-a rooting ground for hogs.
A glance at the house showed a broken
chimney, the bricks unremoved from
where they struck the ground; a moss-
grown roof, with a large limb from a
lightning-struck tree lying almost bal-
anced over the eaves, and threatening
to fall at the touch of the first wind-
storm that swept over. Half of the
vines that clambered about the portico
were dead, and the rest, untrained,
twined themselves in wild disorder, or
fell groveling to the earth. One of the
pillars of the portico was broken, as
were also two of the steps that went up
to it. The windows of the house were
closed, but the door stood open, and, as
the stage went past, my eyes rested, for
a moment, upon an old man seated in
the hall. lie was not near enough to
the door for me to get a view of his
face; but the white flowing hair left me
in no doubt as to his identity. It was
Judge Hammond.
The "Sickle and Sheaf" was yet the
stage house of Cedarville, and there, a
few minutes afterward, I found myself.
The hand of change had been here also.
The first object that attracted my at-
tention was the sign-post, which at my
earlier arrival, some eight or nine years
before, stood up in its new white gar-
ment of paint, as straight as a plummet
line, bearing proudly aloft the golden
sheaf and gleaming sickle. Now, the
post, dingy and shattered and worn
from the frequent contact of wheels,
and gnawing of restless horses, leaned
from its trim perpendicular at an angle
of many degrees; as if ashamed of the
faded, weather-worn, lying symbol it
bore aloft in the sunshine. Around the
post was a filthy mud-pool, in which a
bog lay grunting out its sense of enjoy-
ment Two or three old empty whisky
barrels lumbered up the dirty porch,
on which a coarse, bloated, vulgar-
looking man sat leaning against the
wall-his chair tipped back on its hind
.legs-squinting at me from one eye, as
I left the stage and came toward the
"Ah! is this you?" said he, as I came
near to him, speaking thickly, and get-
ting up with a heavy motion. I now
recognized the altered person of Simon
Miade. On looking at him closer, I saw
that the eye which I had thought only
'shut was in fact destroyed. How vivid-
ly, now, uprose in imagination the
scenes I had witnessed during my last
night in his bar room; the night when
a brutal mob, whom he had inebriated
with liquor, came near murdering him.
"Glad to see you once more, my boy!
Glad to see you! I-I-I'm not just-
you see. How are you? How are you?"
And he shook my hand with a drunk-
en show of cordiality.
I felt shocked and disgusted. Wretch-
ed man! down the crumbling sides of
the pit he had digged for other feet, he
was himself sliding, while not enough
- strength remained even to struggle
with his fate.
I tried for a few minutes to talk with
"him; but his mind was altogether b'-
Sclouded; and his questions and answers
S incoherent; so I left him, and entered
the bar room.
"Can I get accommodations here for
a couple of days?" I inquired of a stu-

pid, sleepy-looking man, who was sit-
ting behind the bar in a chair.
"I reckon so,".he answered, but did
not rise.


kills, not necessarily suddenly,

'I turned and walked a few pacegb'
ward the door, and then walked beck
"I'd like to get a room," 'said L
The man got up slowly, and going to
a desk, fumbled about in it for a while.
At length he brought out an old, dilap-
idated blank-book, and throwing it
open on the counter, asked me, with av
indifferent manner, to write down tmy
I'll take a pen, if you please."
"Oh, yes!" And he hunted about
again in the desk, from which, after a
while, he brought forth the blackened
stump of a quill, and pushed it toward
me across the counter.
"Ink," said I, fixing my eyes upon
him with a look of displeasure.
"I don't believe there is any," he
muttered. "Frank," and he called the
landlord's son, going to the door be-
hind the bar as he did so.
"What d'ye want?" a rough, ill-
natured voice answered.
"Where's the ink?"
"Don't know anything about it."
"You had it last. What did you do
with it?"
"Nothing!" was growled back.
"Well, I wish you'd find it."
"Find it yourself, and --- I can-
not repeat the profane language he
"Never mind," said I. "A pencil wifl
do just as well." And I drew one from
my pocket The attempt to write with
this, on the begrimed and greasy page
of the register, was only partially suc-
cessful. It would have puzzled almost
any one to make out the name. From
the date of the last entry, it appeared
that mine was the first arrival, for over
a week, of any person desiring a room.
As I finished writing my name Frank
came stalking in, with a cigar in his
mouth, and a cloud of smoke around
his head. He had grown into a stout
man-though -his face presented little
that was manly, in the true sense of the
word. He was disgustingly sensual.
On seeing me, a slight flush tinged his
"How do you do?" he said, offering
me his hand. "Peter,"-he turned to
the lazy-looking bar-keeper-"tell Jane
to have No. 11 put in order for a gen-
tleman immediately, and tell her to be
sure and change the bed linen."
"Things look rather dull here," I re-
marked, as the bar-keeper went out to
do as he had been directed.
"Rather; it's a dull place, anyhow."
"How is your mother?" I inquired.
A slight, troubled look came into his
face, as he answered:
"No better."
"She's sick, then?"
"Yes; she's been sick a good while;
and I'm afraid will never be much bet-
ter." His manner was not altogether
cold an indifferent, but there was a
want of feeling in his voice.
"Is she at home?"
"No, sir."
As he showed no inclination to say
more on the subject, I asked no more
questions, and he soon found occasion
to leave the room. *
I1 ne bar room had undergone no ma-
terial change, so far as its furniture and
arrangements were concerned; but a
very great change was apparent in the
condition of these. -The brass rod
around the bar, which, at my last visit
was brightly polished, was now a green-
ish black, and there came from it an
unpleasant odor of verdigris. The walls
were fairly coated with dust, smoke,
and fly-specks, and the windows let in
the light but feebly through the dirt-
obscured glass. The floor was filthy.
Behind the bar, on the shelves design-
ed for a display of liquors, was a con-
fused mingling of empty or half-filled
decanters, cigar-boxes, lemons, and
lemon-peel, old newspapers, glasses, a
broken pitcher, a hat, a soiled vest, and
a pair of blacking brushes, with other
incongruous things, not now remem-
bered. The air of the room was loaded
with offensive vapors.
Disgusted with everything about the
bar, I went into the sitting room. Here
there was some order in the arrange-
ment of the dingy furniture; but you
might have written your name in dust
on the looking glass and table. The
smell of the torpid atmosphere was
even worse than that of the bar room.
So I did not linger here, but passed on,
through the hall, and out upon- the
porch, to get a draught of pure air.
Slade still sat leaning against the
"Fine day this," said he, speaking

in a mumbling kind of voice.
"Very fine," I answered.
"Yes, very fine."
"Not doing so well as you were a few
years ago," said I.
"No-you see-these-these 'ere
blamed temperance people are ruining
"Ah! Is that so?"
"Yes. Cedarville isn't what it was
when you first came to the 'Sickle and
Sheaf.' I-I-you see. Curse the tem-
perance people! They-ve ruined every-
thing, you see. Everything! Ruin-
And he muttered and mouthed his
words in such a way, that I could un-
derstand but little he said; and, in that
little,there was scarcely any coherency.
So I left him, with a feeling of pity in
my heart for the wreck he had become,
and went into the town to call upon one
or two gentlemen with whom I had
In the course of the afternoon, I
learned that Mrs. Slade was in an in-
sane asylum, about five miles from Ce-
darville. The terrible events of the day
on which young Hammond was mur-
dered completed the work of mental
ruin, begun at the time her husband
abandoned the quiet, honorable calling
of a miller and became a tavern-keeper.
Reason could hold its position no long-
er. When word came to her that Willy
and his mother were both dead, she ut-
tered a wild shrieK, and fell down in a
fainting fit. From that period the bal-
ance of her mind was destroyed. Long
before this, her friends saw that reason

lattionwfter worst fears in the corrup--
tiot of her worshipped boy! And
how vain proved all effort and remon-
strance, looking to his safety, whether
made with himself or his father!
irrom the day the tavern was opened,
and Frank drew into his lungs fall
draughts of the changed atmosphere by
which he was now surrounded, the
work of moral deterioration commenc-
ed. The very smell of the liquor ex-
hilarated him unnaturally; 'while the
subjects of conversation, so new to him,
that found discussion in the bar room,
soon came to occupy a prominent place
in his imagination, to the exclusion of
those humane, child-like, tender, and
heavenly thoughts and impressions it
had been the mother's care to impart
and awaken.
Ah! with what an eager zest does the
heart drink in of evil. And how almost
hopeless is the case of a boy, surround-
ed, as Frank was, by the corrupting,
debasing associations of a bar room!
Had his father medidated his ruin, he
could not have more surely laid his
plans for tae fearful consummation;
and he reaped as he had sown. With a
selfish desire to get gain, he embarked
in the trade of corruption, .ruin and
death, weakly believing that he and his
could pass through the fire harmless.
How sadly a few years demonstrated
his error, we have seen.
Flora, I learned, was with her moth-
er, devoting her life to her. The aw-
ful death of Willy Hammond, for whom
she had conceived a strong attachment,
came near depriving her of her reason
also. Since the day on which that aw-
ful tragedy occurred, she had never
even looked on the old home. She went
away with her unconscious mother,
and ever since had remained with her-
devoting her life to her comfort. Long
before this, all her own and mother's
influence over her brother had come to
an end. It mattered not how she sought
to stay his feet, so swiftly moving along
tue downward way, whether by gentle
entreaty, earnest remonstrance, or by
tears; in either case, wounds for her
own heart were the sure consequences,
while -his steps never lingered a mo-
ment. A swift destiny seemed hurry-
ing him on to run. The change in her
father--once so tender, so cheerful in
his tone, so proud of and loving toward
his daughter-was another source of
deep grief to her pure young spirit
Over him, as well as over her brother,
all her power was lost; and he even
avoided her, as though her presence
were an offense to him. And so, when
she went out from her unhappy home,
she took with her no desire to return.
8,ven when imagination bore her back
to the "Sickle and Sheaf," she felt an
intense, heart-sickening repulsion to-
ward the place where she had first felt
the poisoned arrows of life; and in the
depths of her spirit she prayed that her

eyes might never look upon it again.. .- .. -.
In her almost cloister-like seclusion,
she sought to gather the mantle of oh-'
livion about her heart.
Had not her mother's condition made
Flora's duty a plain one, the true, un-
selfish instincts of her heart would.
have doubtless led her back to the pol-
luted home she had left, there, in a kind
of living death, to minister as best she
could to the comfort of a debased'
father and brother. But she was spared
that trial-that fruitless sacrifice.
Evening found me once more in the
bar room of the "Sickle and Sheaf."
The sleepy, indifferent, bar-keeper was
now more in his element-14oked
brighter, and had quicker motions.
Sladewho had partially recovered from
the stupefying effects of the heavy
draughts of ale with which he washed
down his dinner, was also in a better
condition, though not inclined to talk.
He was sitting at a table, alone, with
his eyes wandering about the room.
Whether his thoughts were agreeable
or disagreeable, it was not easy to de-
termine. Frank was there, the center
of a noisy group of coarse fellows,
whose vulgar sayings and profane ex-
pletives continually rung through the -
room. The noisiest, coarsest, and most
profane was Frank Slade, yet did not
the incessant volume of bad language
that flowed from his tongue appear in
the least to disturb his father.
Outraged, at length, by this disgust-
'ing exhibition, that had not even the
excuse of an exciting cause, I was leav-
ing the bar room, when I heard some G
one remark to a young man who had
just come in: has done more than

HoWe are afraid to indulge in criticism
at the adminittrtion on account of the
COngresional election. Nothing could
ore surely indicate the lows of pres-
tge on the part of Mr. Roosevelt with
Republican Senators than the attitude
several Republican members of the
'Conittee on Military Affairs toward
"wlhat Is known as the Root bill for the
reorganization of the staff of the army,
Which Mr. Roosevelt has gone out of
Uie way to endorse. Senator Hawley,
chairman of the committee, and Sen-
ator Proctor, who was once Secretary
of War, are known to be down on this
bill, and to agree with the criticisms of
it made by General Miles, and they
have taken pains to let their attitude
be known. There are other reasons
also for the antagonism of members of
this committee toward Mr. Roosevelt,
and the same sort of feeling exists in
other Senate committees, and Repub-
ican Senators are already predicting
that Mr. Roosevelt will be a badly de-
feated man if he allows his name to go
before the next national convention of
his party as a candidate for the Presi-
dential nomination.
Democrats on the House committee
charged with the duty of investigating
the claim of Capt. Christmas, of Den-
mark, that Abner McKinley's law firm
had engaged in bribing Congressmen
and newspapers in connection with the
negotiations for the purchase of the
Danish West Indies, will see that the
investigation is not a whitewashing af-
fair. It is not the first time that Abner
McMinley's name has been connected
with scandal.
Representative Talbert, of South
Carolina, paid Mr. Roosevelt a de-
served compliment on his having veto-
ed several bills intended to clear the
military record of men who deserted
the United States army during the civil
7rar, when he said, in a short speech
in the House: "I am glad to see that
the chief executive has come to my as-
l stance to keep the roll of honor from
being besmirched by deserters. While
I disagree with the President in almost
everything ease, I heartily indorse his
position in this matter. I have pro-
tested against the passage of these de-
sertion bills for ten years."
While it is denied that Secretary
Wilson's statement to the Cabinet, a
synopsis of which was given out at
the White House concerning the vul-
nerability of Germany to retaliation
should this government seek that
method of resenting recent restrictions
placed upon the imporation of Amer-
ican food stuffs, was a threat, it is so
considered by many. Why the denial,
is the puzzling part of the matter.
The situation is one that calls not only
for threats, but for acts. It is plain,
everyday common sense that German
food products, of which we buy many
million dollars worth each year, are
not entitled to any better treatment
from this government than Germany
gives American food products, and if
the administration fails to adopt and
live up to a policy based upon that idea

Hon. James M. Griggs, of Georgia,

Tne interests of the pneumatic tube
companies, which were left out in the
cold by the last Congress, are seeming-
ly in a fair way to get pretty well taken
care of by this Congress. Senator

Lodge has offered an amendment to the
postoffice appropriation bill providing
an appropriation of $500,000 for pneu-
matic tube service for the next fiscal
* year and authorizing contracts for this
service for four years at an annual ex-
penditure of $800,000. Senator Cullom
has introduced a bill instructing the
Postmaster General to make contracts
for pneumatic tube service in cities,
limiting the annual cost in each city to
4 per cent. of the gross postal revenues.
Everybody will have to agree that
there is such a thing as a good trust,
now that the National Trust for Places

ty has been incorporated by a number
of patriotic ladies and gentlemen of
Washington. The objects of this trust
are to look out for and preserve places
of historic interest, to take care of the

the rules ot the Houe to bhaa up leg-
islation that has passed the Senate.
Among the bills passed by the Senate
that are now hung up in the House are
the omnibus claims bill, in which many
Senators and members of the House are
deeply interested; the irrigation bill,
which Senators and Representatives
from the States that would be benefited
have appealed to Mr. Roosevelt to help
them try to get action upon by the
House; the bill for the establishment
of the Department of Commerce and
Labor; the bill for the increase of the
salaries of the judges of the Federal
courts, and last, but by no means least,
the ship subsidy bill. It is believed
that these bills are being held back be-
cause Speaker Henderson and his ad-
mirers think they would make Demo-
cratic votes in the Congressional elec-
tions if allowed to go through at this
session. At any rate, there is no doubt
that they are being held back and that
Republican Senators are hopping mad
about it.

STen Nights in a Bar Room. ,
AAAA ae e e O A OOOO*,d

Continued from 7th page
I turned to observe the young man
more closely. His face I remembered.
though I could not identify him at first.
But, when I heard him addressed soon
after as Ned Hargrove, I had a vivid
recollection of a little incident that oc-
curred some years before, and which
then made a strong impression. The
reader has glardly forgotten the visit of
Mr. Hargrove to the bar room of the
"Sickle and Sheaf," and the conversa-
tion among some of its inmates, which
his withdrawal, in company with his
son, then occasioned. The father's
watchfulness over his boy, and his ef-
forts to save him from the allurements
and temptations of the bar room, had
proved, as now appeared, unavailing.
The son was several years older; but
it was sadly evident, from the expres-
sion of his face, that he had been grow-
ing older in evil faster than in years.
The few words that I have mentioned
as passing between this young man and
another inmate of the bar room, caused
me to turn back from the door, through
which I was about passing, and take a
chair near to where Hargrove had seat-
ed himself. As I did so, the eyes of
Simon Slade rested on the last-named
"Ned Hargrove!" he said, speaking
roughly, "if you want a drink, you'd
better getit, and make yourself scarce."
"Don't trouble yourself," retorted the
young man, "you'll get your money for
the drink in good time."
This irritated the landlord,who swore
at Hargrove violently, and said some-
thing about not wanting boys about his
place who couldn't stir from home with-
out having "daddy or mammy running
after them."
"Never fear!" cried out the person
who had first addressed Hargrove-"his
old man's gone to prayer meeting. We
shan't have the light of his pious coun-
tenance here tonight."
I fixed my eyes on the young man to
see what effect this coarse and irrever-
ent allusion to his father would have.
A slight tinge of shame was in his face;
but I saw that he had not sufficient
moral courage to resent the shameful
desecration of a parent's name. How
should he, when he was himself the
first to desecrate that name?
"If he were forty fathoms deep in the
infernal regions," answered Slade, "he
would find out that Ned was here, and
get half an hour's. leave of absence, to
come after him. The fact is, I'm tired
of seeing his solemn, sanctimonious
face here every night. If the boy has
not spirit enough to tell him to mind
his own business, as I have done more
than fifty times, why, let the boy stay
away hiniself."
"Why don't you send him off with a
flea in his ear, Ned"? said one of the
company, a young man scarcely his
own age. "My old man tried that game
with me, but he soon found that I could
hold the winning cards."
"Just what I'm going to do the very
next time he comes after me."
"Oh, yes! So you've said twenty
times," remarked Frank Slade, in a
sneering, insolent manner.
Edward Hargrove had not the spirit
to resent this; he only answered:
"Just let him show himself here to-
night, and you will see."
"No, we won't see," sneered Frank.
"Wouldn't it be fun!" was exclaimed.
"I hope to be on hand, should it ever
come off."
"He's as 'fraid as death of the old
chap," laughed a sottish-looking man,
whose age ought to have inspired him
with some respect for the relation be-
tween father and son, and doubtless
would, had not a long course of drink-
ing and familiarity with debasing as-
sociates blunted his moral sense.
"Now for it!" I heard uttered, in a
quick, delighted voice. "Now for fun!
Spunk up to him, Ned! Never say die!"
I turned toward the door, and there
stood the father of Edward Hargrove.
