XONDDN, Jan. 27. Though criticism- of
ihe government and Its methods- of han
dling the war is unabated. It is safe to
say that "when parliament me'ts Tuesday
next nothing serious will result. There will
be the .usual, motions of censure, with
perhaps, more than the -usual Impassioned
denunciations of the various, departments
of the janmintetraUOit .'especially; the 'war
and coibfilal "offices. "But such is the pa
triotism of the average Englishman and
Buch Is the strength of the conservative
organization that it will be surprising If
Lord Salisbury's majority is even appre
ciably weakened.
This mere tally of votes, however, must
not be construed as a real Index of na
tional feeling, for many a man will go to
the government lobby, who outside has
privately declared that some one ought to
be hangea I ormaladministration. and that
if Lord Salisbury does not dissociate him
self rom, the system of culprits respon
sible for the national humiliation, he must
eventually take the consequences. The in
ner circles of the government are jaerfect
ly well aware of such on eventuality, but
they have no fe-ujs for the Immediate fu
ture, Implicitly believing in a successful
climax of the war, and trusting it will
offset the initial blunders.
Another cogent reason -for prophesy
ing -that- the session will Jte barren of
changes affecting the balance of power Is
that the opposition apparently Is hopeless
ly divided. Nothing showed this better
than John Morleys speech at Forfar, Jan
uary 24, when, for the first tlme. he pub
licly sneered at Lord Hosebery, who num
bers among his devoted adherents such
brilliant liberals as H. H. Asquith and Sir
Edward Grey. Lord Rosebery's magnifi
cent speech this week and the speeches
which he has recently delivered have con
vincd men Z all parties of -his exceptional
breadth of 'mind, patriotism ana doillty to
lace a national crisis safely, and perhaps
it is not stretching the bow to Bay he to
day commands British confidence to a
greater extent than Lord Salisbury. Yet
It is impossible for the liberals to unite on
him, and, -as the Saturday Review says,
he is so admirable out of office that one
'v.ould risk putting him in. 4
With Mr. Zdorley so bitterly opposed to
the Hosebery section, of the liberals, and
Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman such" a
noncommittal nonentitythat his- own par
ty press scarcely ever refers to him, the
liberals have no liberal upon whom to
unite, oven should they cohese sufficiently
to make a determined attempt to oust the
government, so it is probable the oppo
sition's tactics will be of the guerrilla or
der, contenting themselves with putting
up Sir Charles Dilke and others to criticise
individual points, and, while not directly
challenging a vote upon the morality of
the war and the government's waging of
It, for fear of Incurring the accusation of
being "unpatriotic, achieving the same end
by vigorous academic criticism of thc ante
helium diplomacy, bringing up the Jame
son raid skeleton and demanding the pro
duction of the withheld correspondence,
which Vas referred to by B. F. Hawksley,
counsel for Cecil Rhodes, in the letters
recently, published by the "Independent
This line of policy, however, will not pre
vent the Irish members and most of the
advanced liberals from bringing to vote
most sweeping measures of censure. But
the liberal leaders of all sections are like
ly to abstain from, supporting the war it
self, which has now been in progress over
three months, and the British ppsltlon is
worse than when parliament "was hastily
assembled to grant supplies.
An eminent British general, reviewing
the situation to a representative of the
Associated Press, thus summed It up;
"First of all, we underestimated the
enemy. Secondly, we .knew nothing of the
power of modern weapons when opposed
to each other in the hands of tolerably
equal forces. Thirdly, we deserted strat
egy to satisfy sentiment. By that, I mean

chiefly we have learned that long-range
guns and rifles minimize tremendously the
advantage which formerly accrued to the
aggressor. Yet, I thoroughly believe, and
I am not speaking without experience,
that had any Continental nation under
taken the same task with the same .force,
it would by this time have been wiped
out. There are a lot of things which
might have been learned had we watched
your land fighting at Santiago. But we
did not. As a result, we did not have
nippers to cut wire, and we knew nothing
about Mausers. But the appreciation of
our shortcomings only makes us the more
determined. tt may be six months and It
may be a year; but we shall achieve our
From the field of party strife and mili
tary criticism it Is a relief to -turn to an
extract from a letter of an officer at the
front, who writes:
"An orderly was bringing some water
to a wounded man lying on the ground
near me, shot through the abdomen. He
could hardly speak, owing to the dryness
of his mouth, but he said: 'Take it to my
pal first; he's worse hit than me.' "
After reading this, one can understand
that General Buller did not slop oyer
when he wired, "The men are splendid."
Professor Goldwln Smith writes to the
Speaker one of the most misleading let
ters which could possibly be put before
the British public. It commences by say
ing: "J. suppose the donors of the Maine
thought they were paying a compliment
to America In calling it hy that name,
but really they were pricking the American
conscience, as there 3ire "few things more
certain that the Maine was blown up
by the Igniting of the coal in her bunk
ers. The same accident has happened to
three American vessels since, oneof them
commanded by the same captain of the
Maine, though In these cases the' vessels
were saved. Nothing is more certain than
that the Maine was not blown up by the
There is more in the same strain, in
cluding, as proof of his contention, the
remark that "no more now-Is heard oi
the monument which was, to be erected
to the crew -of the Maine."
The Saturday Review speaks in bold de
fiance of the majority of the English cor
respondents In America by declaring that
the "general feeling in America Is by no
means with us in this matter (the war),

Hugh Wallace, of Seattle, after a week
in London, goes to Paris today. Regard
ing the political outlook in the United
States, Mr, Wallace said:
"'Silver, as an issue, is dead. The demo
cratic party will nominate either Dewey,
Gorman, Olney or Justice Peckham, on
the platform of freedom of trade and
sympathy with the independence of the
Transvaal, opposition to subordination , of
the civil to military power, opposition to
entangling alliances, and opposition to
any coxnpronjisjB jvrjh respect to the
btrandaries of 'our country."
The we'ek, .which opened full of
high hopes, is closing gloomily.
The result ., of General Warren's
Splonkopi action has had almost a
mora Tflepresshig effect than would an
out-and-out reverse, so keen Is the revul
sion of feeling after the short-lived jubi
lation. Death, too, has been very busy in
high places at home. It is seldom that

From the" English point of view, there
is not a cloud on the sky of Interna
tional relations. The war IS far too en
grossing to permit people to pause and
consider the effect on Great Britain of
the apparent change of regime In China,
while congressional action on the Nica
ragua canal or the proposed increase in
the armament in the United States
scarcely cause a ripple of interest. ' The
foreign office apparently has not the
slightest belief that the Clayton-Bulwer
treaty. is in danger of-violation, and so
far -has taken no steps in the matter.
Neither do the pro-Boer or other tmeet
Ingsin theJUnlted States any longer .at
tract serious attention or comment, for
the majority of the British have made up
their minds that the United States Is
.friendly to them, and they put aside
any manifestations to the contrary, as due
to local political causes which cannot be
taken as in any way representing na
tional opinion.
A usurious exception -to the general patri
otism, which prevails among the nobility
of all classes occurred the other day.
When the Gloucestershire volunteers re
spectfully asked Lord1 Sherborne for a
rifle range on his estates, they received
the reply that if the people of England
wanted rifle ranges they must be paid for.

however, .especially at the front, the medi--cal-(arrangements

A sensation has been caused in
society and stock exchange circles by
the recent posting on the stock ex
change of the names of two women, clients
of well-known bankers. The brokers, re
quested other brokers to communicate
wlth'them before carrying out any trans
actions with these two' women, who" were
declared to be unreliable. One of these
is Lady Elizabeth Bertie, sister of the
Earl of LIndsey, one of the oldest peers
In England, while the other Is a Mrs.

"It appears they speculated -heavily, es
pecially in .Rands, .and when the slump
came they were unable to meet their
losses. Mrs. Manbyls said to be the iri
stfgafor'of' the business.' "Neither' 'o'f the
women had any large amount of money,
but they were dazzled by the prospects
of making a fortune easily, and suc
ceeded in getting introduced to some bro
kers, who, on the strength of the ancient
name of LIndsey, gave them a free hand
without making any investigations. The
subsequentaction of posting their clients
names has given rise to considerable
criticism, as it is an unprecedented action,
and in the street the brokers are almost
as much blamed as the women for al
lowing matters to reach such a stage.

Reviewing, the business of 1S99, the .Times
says: ,
"The .fact that lri the Onlted States the
expansion of business commenced a year
later than elsewhere, seems to explain the
fact which must be admitted, that Amer
ican expansion not 'so far advanced, rel
atively, as that of the United Kingdom and
Germany, and may consequently be ex
pected to continue for a while after the
business, of the two latter countries shows
signs of cont.rafcy&ff. That advantage,
however, mayjhe-colaslderably nullified by
the occurrence this year of another presi
dential election."
Sporting clroles continue agitated lest
Flying Fox should go out of the country.
The Man of the World says:
"The only chance, so far as I can see,
of Flymg Fox running into a very fancy
price is that an American society man
may desire to win the Ascot gold cup.
I do not suppose for a moment that Sir J.
Blundell Maple would want him for such
a purpose. Mr. Wh'.tney is said to be
much richer than Sir Blundel Maple, and
Is connected by marriage with the Paget
family here. As it happens, however, the
sporting actions of the Fagets will not bo
seen at Ascot, as most of them are out at
the war. With another buyer than Mr.
Whitney or with the reserve reached we
may take It that Flying Fox will not run
for the Ascot cup. For that reason, I
hope the reserve will be a very stiff one,
as It ought to be. Such a horse ought to
belong only to a Westminster."

Case Hinges? on,- theVGretlentlals ol
Two .Members of the State Senate
Arguments For'and Against,
WASHINGTON, Jan. 27. The5 senate
committee on privileges and elections met,
today to hear the arguments In the casej
of the remonstrance a'galnst permitting!
Hon. Nathan B. Scott, of. West Virginia-,
to occupy his seat in the senate. The
principal 'objection to Scott urged, by the.
protestants was based upon the conjen,
tion that he received only 48 votes, or onp
less than a majority, and that he secured
his election by causing the suspension of
two members of the legislature, Who were
afterwards given seats, thus reducing the
membership from 97 to 93.
The protestants also claimed that by
accepting commissions in the army in 1898,
Getzfendonner and Plerson vacated their
office as members of the state senate.
Without their votes Scott would have had
41? votes. The friends of Mr. Scott contest
these points, urging cause for the sus
pension of the two members and also show
ing that Getzendonner and Pierson had
resigned their offices Ui .the. army before
casting-'thelr votes fpV Scott for senator.
The first speaker for the protestants was
Judge John Holt, '"of West "Virglna, He
urged that Getzendonner and Pierson were
absolutely prohibited by the West "Virginia
constitution from the acceptance of 'of
fices under the federal government. They
had the choice of retaining their civil of
fices or accepting their positions in the
miliary service: they had accepted the lat-
f positions and thus ipso facto they had
vacated their state oraces. jvir. iion ae
Voted mucin of his time to consideration of
the right of the senate of the United
States to investigate the Qualifications of
the members of the state senate, holding J
that, as alriatter of self-preservation, tpe
federal senate was bound to go behind the
decisions of a state body.
Frank L. Welles, also of the counsel for
the nrotestants. presented the reasons why
the committee should take further evl-:
dence In the case. He called, attention to
the anamolous facts that while it was
claimed that Scott had been elected by 48
Votes, a majority, the protestants num
"bered 49 members of the legislature. Ho
contended that the contests for seats In
the West Virginia legislature were the
result of conspiracy on the part of the
republican managers to secure the election
of Scott, and that in some cases the, con
tests were insisted upon even where the
contestants did not want to enter into
them. Bloodshed was even threatened by
republican state officers. 'Mr. Welles urqd
the committee, in view of these conten
tions, to take testimony ancUallow the
protestants to prove these facts. He said
conditions in .West Virginia frere as bad
as had been known In 'the South In
the days of reconstruction. -lAmong others
they would 'like to have "tn"B" governor of
the state called to testify as to. his threat
to call out the militia to' force the' recogni
tion of a rump legislature.
Ex-Senator Faulkner, in presenting the
case of Senator Scott, said that it was
admitting that at the beginning of the last
session, of tho West Virginia, , legislature
the republicans controlled It upon joint bal
lot, the democrats having a inajority- in
the house and the republicans .in. the sen
ate. Even with-the two seats .held. by ihe
soldier senators vacated, the republicans
would still have a majority at that time
of 47 to 46. With reference to the votes
of Senators Getzendonner and Pierson, he
admitted that they had accepted commis
sions in a West Virginia regiment In tbe
Spanish ,war, but said they had resigned
those commissions prior to the meeting
ot the legislature. The-state . senate -bad
decided by a vote of 16 to 8 that the rnen
were entitled to hold their seats, and he
said the state senate was the proper judge
of their qualifications, and there could be
no appeal to the federal senate.
Senate Coxamittee.,Decides the Island
Shall Be Known as "Porto 'Rico.
'WASHINGTON, Jan. 27,-t-The senate
Committee oil Puerto Rico has decided, so
far as It can decide, that the island shall
be known as Porto Rico, and not Puerto
Rico, as fixed by a recent executive order.
The committee went over the Foraker
bill In detail, deciding upon many qhanges
In phraseology and some alterations in
the 'provisions of the bill." Probably one
o'f 'the -most important changes was to
strike out the word "constitution" wher
ever it 'appeared in the original print of
the bill, which extended the provisions
of the constitution, as well as of the laws,
to the island. The change was made be
cause of the opinion generally expressed
by the members of the committee that
our constitution is-not suited to the
Puerto Rico people. The opinion wasalso
qulte general that the extension of the
constitution was not necessary.
Another Important amendment provides
for the retirement of Puerto RIcan "coins
and the substitution for them of the coins
of the United States. Another provision
authorizes the president to appoint an offi
cer of the army to be governor of tno
island. All laws enacted by vthe Puerto
Rico legislature are to be reported to con
gress, which reserves the right 'to annul
Eulopriea in the House.
WASHINGTON", Jan. 27. After trans
acting minor routine business, the house
devoted its attention to eulogies on tho
late Representative Balrd, of Louisiana.
At the conclusion of' the eulogies, resolu
tions of respect were adopted, and at
1:20, as a further mark (of respect, the
house adjournea.
Present Appropriations Canse If to
Fall Behind Requirements. s
WASHINGTON, Jan. 22. The first" as
sistant postmaster-general, in his reeent
report, dwells at some length on the ques
tion of letter-carriers In the larger cities,
and says that, while the appropriations
for carriers have seemed, liberal, the force
has imperceptibly but steadily grown,
and at a greater rate than the appropria
tions. It is said that at the present rate
of Increase in population and expansion
o commercial enterprises, with, annual
appropriations increasing only from 15 to
8 per cent, it is no extravagant estimate
to assert that by the close of another
year the service In many, if not a ."ma
jority, of the growing cities will approxi
mately fall 20 per cent short of being a
full and satisfactory service correspond
ing to the improvement and growth con
stantly going on in the other agencies
of the business, industrial and social
world. On this account the estimates for
the coming year were increased to meet
the emergency, for the postmaster-general
says that the time has come when
this falling behind the practical needs
of 'the busy world should cease, the ex
isting delinquency be overcome, and, the
service increased henceforth on a per
centage parallel to the increase In popu
lation and businpss. It Is a lemarkable
fact that the. free-dQUyery system of the
United States 'costs for maintenance a
little less than 50 cents per capita for, the
SO.OOff.OOO patrons who enjoy its adjtan
tages. "
A great deal of complaint has been re-t
celved that the first morning mall in the
cities Is delivered later than Is convenient,
especially in the business centers, al
though the service throughout" the. re
mainder of "tlie day Is emlnenfryYSatisf ac
tory. JThe department is rjow-testlng 'a
system in several offices which is-lntended
to facilitate an earljor delivery of the
morning mall, and In case Hhe experi
ments prove satisfactory, the method w,iH
be adoDted in all free-delivery offices, It
Is "reported" that "in some offices this - test j
has proven a great 'benefit and Improve
mentSna: at a very "moderate cost, and
if further results demonstrate its certain
sucqess' It will offer absolution at a mini
mum expenditure for" the annoying and
growing early morning congestion In the
larger offices. As a matter pf fact, from
40 to 50 per cent of the day's mall ac
cumulates In the offices during the night,
and must be distributed on the first morn
ing delivery, thus rendering' thatjiellvery
more extensive ahd Complicated than any
of ths others.
The discipline among thq carriers is re
ported to be excellent. Much credit Is due
to ithe fraternal and, aid associations
maintained by the carriers In nearly every
,-jState, and the annual gathering of the
.national organization of letter-carriers
nalso does much to perfect the organiza
tion artd benefit both the service and the
. Individual members. ,,
t The department realizes that the serv
ice is more or less handicapped by super
( animated carriers, and Tecognlzes that
remedial measures ought to be devised
before this detriment weighs so heavily as
to (affect the efficiency of the service.
This question has for some time been
seriously considered by the state asso
ciations. In referring to this question,
the first assistant postmaster-general
"It is understood that Jhe carriers,
through their national organization, will,
at the coming session o"f qongress, 'pro
pose the ftiactment of a law authorizing
the retention from their monthly salaries
of a small fixed sum, to be held by the
postofflce department as a trust fund
from which annuities or pensions may
be paid to superannuated or disabled
members who havje served a certain pe
riod. Such a plan Is to be, commended,
and would have the, cordlaf approval of
the department, as It; would entail no ad
ditional expense or work on the govern
ment other than the matter of book
keeping and investing the funds, ample
facilities for which already exist. Any
efforts, therefore, that the carriers may
Initiate in this direction will meet with
co-operation, as It offers a solution in
harmony with the spirit of our institu
tions, and would have beneficeht and far
reaching effect, both to the carriers and
the service."

Rev R Stubenvoir; Pastor of the Bethlehem Church, at Pella, Wis., In a re
centletferlo TDK "Hrtmah- 'says':
"I cannot but feel obliged to extend you my personal thanks for my com
plete restoration. All through this winter I suffered from throat and lung
trouble, but recovered my entire health by the use of your excellent remedy,
Pe-ru-na, and can" only speak well of your extraordinary medicine. May your
medicine be the same blessing to others thatt has been to me'
Every person who has had la grippe
during the last year should take. a course
of Pe-vu-na. No one need expect perfect
recovery unless they do so. The grippe
has produced catarrhal Inflammation of
the "whole mucous embrane, and good
health Is impossible until these are. re
stored to a normal condition. This Pe-ru-na
will do. A great many remedies have
been suggested for this condition from
time to time, but Pe-ru-na appears to
be the only remedy that has any substan
tial value In these cases. It has stood
the test of forty yeara' experience and
still occuplesUbe unique position of being
the leading (if not the only) specific rem

to Berlin.
BERLIN, Jan. 27. Excepting that It was
lacking in court fetes, the emperor's birth
day today was kept In the usual way.
Flags were dlsplajed everywhere, and the
papers published congratulatory articles
In which his majesty is .praised as the
champion of peace, the promoter, of civil
ization and the vigorous helmsman of
Germany's destinies. The Kruse Zeltung
house poet -again publishes his usual con
gratulatory ode. The center organs re

everlasting gratitude by signing the Jesuit
The court mourning stops all projected
festivities among the upper classes. The

for the" 29th "Is off, and the same Is the
case with those of Count Schaffgotch,
Count Sierstorps, Count Beroldinge, Count
Lerchenfeld and. Admirals TIrpltz and
Sandeblbranden. All of these balls were
to be honored by the emperor's presence.
Tuesday's court reception, which was
the only one this winter, was more bril
liant than ever. The ladles' costumes dis
played unusual elegance, being of
peculiar designs. Dark, flowing vel
vet, with . costly fur trimming-, and
elaborate silk embroideries, were espe
cially noticeable. Among the debutantes,
Baroness "Wlede-Bachnostiz attracted spe
cial attention by personal charms, beauti
ful costumes and remarkable diamonds.
The Princess of Pless and Countess von
Goetzen, the latter an American, were also
specially remarked. In "the small Ameri
can delegation, .Mrs. "Wurtz made a gor
geous display of diamonds and pearls,
even outshining Mrs. White's famous
necklace. .
Among the older, court element, com
plaints this winter were specially strong
because of the rigid new court ceremo
nial, the style of reception being copied
by the emperor more after the court of St.
James, old gentlemen especially complain
ing about being forced to wear knee,
breeches, with silk stockings, inducing
rheumatism and gout. They also com
plain at the Increasing costliness of the
gala coats, which for high officials now
cost 1400 marks.

"1 had been a sufferer with chronic
catarrh for about flfteep years, and the
grippe aggravated It, causing a serious
throat and lung complication.
"As soon as I read your book I thought
Pe-ru-na was the thing I needed. I sent
for three bottles, and though I had been
praotically voiceless for about eleven,
we'eks, less than two bottles of your medi
cine caused my voice to. return and healed
my throat and vocal organs. I at once
began to take on flesh and grow stronger
and the symptoms gradually began to
disappear. After the third bottle night
sweats left me. and when I had taken the
fourth bottle I weighed 145 pounds. It.
my extreme sickness I must have been re
duced to 125 pounds; now I weigh 153 and,
all the summer I have enjoyed good,
"1 feel that I owe my life to the won
derful curative powers of Pe-ru-na, and
though my druggist never kept it be
fore, he sells more of It now through
the good It has done; me than any one
kind of medicine he keeps. I shall al

which, added to my already nervous con
