A decrease of 60 per cent in the sup

The rise in the price of beef may be ac

At Chicago the establishment ot a
largo department store, to be owned and
conducted as a co-operative enterprise
of colored men, is planned and promises
to be an interesting experiment. The
company which 1b at the head of the
undertaking has loen conducting a
grocery and meat market for some
months, witli gratifying success. Its
patronage is not confined to colored cus
tomers, but includes many white fam
ilies. Tub report of the Interstate commerce
commission to congress contains the
following fignillcant paragraph, in
which there is mure truth than poetry :
"It needs no prophetic eye to see that in
a very few years ull tho great railroads ot
the United States will be gathered in
two or throe great groups, all under the
.harmonious control of the immensely
jrieh men, who will have united them
for their benefit and to destroy compe
tition." A lkttkr frcm an American, officer in
China publish d in the .London Tilling,
brings out in a striking manner the
main features of tho invasion of that
healhen.country by the "Christian" na
tions. He says; "Looting, murder,
and outrage thin wan the stoiy on every
side, and the whole campaign was to this
witness discreditable to tho superior
race," and very demoralising to all
thohe who took part. "It is amauing
how quickly the iiibtinets of tyranny,
he worst characteristics of the slave
driver, are developed in the aveiae
man who finds his fellowmen under
his unchecked control." In this sen
tence the ollicer has put his finger upon
the main reason why no man is good
enough to rule unother againat his will,
as Lincoln put it. When he is trans
ferred to the Philippines, if he has not
aliei dy been, he will rtcognUe the same
attitude oil the part of tho invaders
toward the invaded, and Id It will doubt

"The fuitre of the Anglo Saxon Rate '
is the subject of a contribution to the
North American Review for December
from the pen of ord Charles Beres-
lord . He savs : "There ftr rwln ahead
which may wreck the Anglo-American
barque. With moderately fair sales
and smooth seas the supremacy of this
great race has been built np, and with
success have come all the evils which
are so historically associated with the
fall of empires and nations of the past.
n the motherland the corruption of
money has wrought fearful havoc in the
ranks of society. In the United States
there are ominous mutterings of the
coming storm. The plutocrat is gaining
powei each day on both sides of the At
lantic, and the democrat is lisely to be
crashed under the heel of a worse ty
rant itaan a king who wore the Dumle.

up claim to temporal power. This is
the danger which threatens the Anglo
Saxon race. The sea which threatens
to overwhelm it Is n ot the angry waters
of the Latin races, or of envious rivals.
but the cankerine-worm in its . own
heart, the sloth, the indolence, the lux
urious immorality, the loss of manli-t-ess,
chivalry, moral courage and fear
lessness which that worm breeds. This
danger, which overthrew Babylon, Per
sia, Carthage, Athens, Rome, and many
other mighty nations and races in the
past, now threatens the race to which
we belong; but to it we oppose what
they never possessed on anything like
the same principles or to the same ex
tent as we the power of democracy."
President McKinley's Dromotion nf
Justice McKenna's son to the Inspector-
ueneraiship of Porto Rico, and of Jue
tice Harlan's son to the Attornev.fin.
eralshipof that island, are acts so un-
roriunate at this time that even so
staunch an administration journal as the
unicago limes-Herald sharply criticises
them. It points out "the ugly and
haunting coincidence" of mii-h
dential appointments in Porto Rico "at
the very moment when the policy of
ineaaministretion toward the island is
an issue before the court." But it.
thinks that as "the damage is done" the
only way to repair it is for the two jus
tices whose sons have been thus un.
seasonably favored to "decline to sit
longer in the island cases."
It is not forgotten that Mptfi
lected two senators, both memr nt
the Foreign Relations Committee, to go
abroad and make a treaty with Spain,
on which they were later on to pass
judgment as senators. That the votes
ot certain democratic senator hv whinh
that treaty was ratified were notoriously
icoiuou whu appointments to office,
and that one democratic senator nH
criminal indictment was rewarded for
nis vote to ratify by the quashing of the
indictmert, are also well remembered
dub or History.
That we are in the islands at all is due
to the ratification of the Spanish treaty
by one yote only, and that nil ft wnnlsl
have been lacking but for Mr. McKin
ley's flagrant miBuse of the power of pa
trbnage. That he should now have ex
posed our highest tribunal to pvpn t ho
suspition of being swaved in favor nf tha
view which Mr. McKinley and his party
desiieto have it adopt of our status in
the islands is, in view of his past record,
to say the least, an amazing indiscre
San Fraucisco is receiving a severe
lesson in the private ownership of the
highways of the country that ought to
make many converts among her business
men to the principle of government own
ership of the Baiue. The Call says :
"The process of making this city a
way station on the road to the East has
begun by the institution of a through
rate, including car haul and ship haul,
from uiid-contin.ntal and Atlantic points
l'he land and water transportation being
treated as one haul, and thnt haul af
fected by the competition of the Suez
Canal, San Francisco is side-tracked.
"Aglaucoat the schedule discloses
the destructive situation. The rate ou
canned goods from all eastern poiuta to
San Francisco is $1 per 100 pounds; on
same goods from all eastern points to
the Orient, by ea.ne schedule, only X)
cents I As the water rate on canned
goods from San Francisco is 40 cents,
our joint rate to the Orient is $1.40, as
against DO ce'Hs enjoyed b New York
and other eastern points. Of course
that advantage of 50 cents per against
San Francisco shuts us out of the

points to San Francisco is 85 cents;
from the same points to the Orient 80
cents. Liquors to San Francisco from
New York and the east pay $1.15. and
f'om the same points through San
Francisco to the Orient only 80 cents.
"The same disadvantage to San Fran
cisco runs through the entire schedule,
applying to agricultural Implements,
machinery, manufactures of metal,
fabrics and thd whole list of meichan

New York, Chicago, St. Louis and all
eastern poiuts reach the Orient cheaper
than San Fraucisco can. . We are de
prived of the natural advantage of our
geogrnghlcal position, and the ocean

us. The' Oriental market is closed to

THE GOAT CURE.
Lv San Francisco a young physician
is meeting with astonishing success in
what is termed "The new Animal
Therapy," which consists of the treat
ment of disease with extracts of organs
and tissues of loweranimals, principally
taken from the hardiest animals known,
the Rocky Mountain goats. It is
claimed that the cells and extracts in
the lymphatic system of this animal are
the most highly vitalized of any known
animal. This is due to the goat being
not only the hardiest, but the healthiest
of all animals. It is said that he can
not be inoculated with any microbic
disease; that age produces less effect on
bis organs and tissues than on any other
animal, and that degenerative diseases
are almost never found in his body. On
the face of it, the lay mind naturally
concludes that injecting goat juice into
the human body to cure disease is a
fraud and "fake," but the "proof of the
pudding is in the eating thereof," and
the virtue of juices from the festive Wil
liam goat is pi oved by its effect upon
Those who have investigated the sys
tem claim that it is almost miraculous
in its results. Being new, and the pub
lic being more or less suspicious of new
methods, naturally the doctor gets only
the worst of cases those far gone and
beyond the reach of the skill of the ordi
nary physician. For instance, a Clay
street printer with locomotor ataxia in
both legs and arms for sixteen years,
and so far gone as to be beyond the ordi
nary duties of life and business, would
not be a very inviting patient for the
average doctor. But such an one took
the treatment for three months, re
covered his general health, lost his
"lightning pains" and is now attending
to his business. A lady living in
Alameda had consumption and had been
pronounced beyoad hope after a consul
tation of regular physicians. After two
months' treatment with goat lymph
every sign of tubeiculosis has disap
peared and she now, with the exception
of not having fully recovered her strength
is a well woman. An old lady who had
suffered for nearly a score of years with
rheumatism, whose joints had become
fixed and enlarged, whose fingers ha l
become like bird's claws, and who wat
hopeless, after sixty days' treatment Is
as well as one of her age could expect to
be, and her joints and fingers are appar
Doctors with incurable patients turn
them over to the new treatment. One
of the leading surgeons of San Franciscj
with locomotor ataxia is taking the
treatment, as are two of her best known
attorneys. The wife of a minister, a
newspaper writer, a musician, two com
mercial travelers, and a score ot others
aie patients now, and some are nearly
cured, while all are improving. They
are all locomotor ataxia cases and any
physician who has the fear of the Lord
in his soul will admit that he cannot
cure this disease.
The "goat doctor" asserts that he has
had great success with those debilitated
by old age, nervous prostration and ex
haustion, nutritional diseases, geniittl
debilitation, microbic diseases, epilepsy,
chorea, hysteria, neuralgia, paralysis,
neuritis, dementia, melancholy insanity,
Patients receive an injection of lymph
once or twice a day and in doses from
three to nine drops. It is said the treat
ment cannot injure oiie even when care
lessly used, and the treatment, it is
claimed, cures by stimulating the vital
centers and cells of the body, removing
the degenerative results of disease, de
posits, etc., and by reconstructing a new
organism, improving the structure and
functions of cell life.

Readers of The Smart Set will doubt
less agree that the February number is
the brightest issue yet of this remarka
bly original periodical. ' Tne leading
story is a novelette entitled "Rumors
and a Runaway," by Caroline Duer.
This is Miss Duer's first long story.
The short stories that she has published
in The Smart Set during the past year
met with almost sensational success,
and gave her a great reputation for the
piquancy and cleverness of her work.
This longer story will prove a still
greater triumph. It is deticiously
smart; it scintillates with humor; it is
fascinating to the last line.
