'Yon touched a tender spot
So runs a phrase in the last note of
Henna to Roosevelt, as it is now pub
lished. It is the word of man to man,
written at that line where distinctions
perish where Senator and President
and all titles and precedences merge in
to the one great fact of a common
What Mr. Roosevelt bad done was a
very ordinary thing. He had gone to
call where one lay ill. It was the very
simplest office of friendship. But "it
touched a tender spot" because it met a
human yearning. None of ua fail to
look for sympathy and attention in an
hour of suffering or bereavement.
None of ub fail of a peculiar apprecia
tion of the outstretched hand of fellow- j
ship in such an hour. The offering and
the reception both are good.
Among friendship's many opportuni
ties, that of touching "the tender spot"
is perhaps least to be neglected.

Ex-Prcsident Cleveland' has intro
duced a little life intojh present dull
passage of the political play by outlin
ing, in the Saturday Evening Post, his
idea of Democracy's chance in the com
ing campaign and his idea of tho platform-
on which his party should make
the fight. The gist of ex-President
Cleveland's views and opinions
expressed have been approved by the
conservative element of the Democrats,
but to the wing of the party headed by
Mr. Bryan, Mr. Cleveland's words have
been like salt in an open wound.
It is truly edifying to observe the cor-.
diality that does not exist between the
ex-President and the commoner of Ne
braska. The character of Bryan's re
gard is very clearly shown by his com
ments on Cleveland, called out by the
publication of the lattei's article.
Cleveland would not "vote for a candi
date running on the Ten Command
ments if the candidate had not secretly
mortgaged himself to Wall Street," Bry
an declares, and then submits further:
"There is a wider gap between his pro
fessions and practices than there has
ever been in recent years between the
professions and practices of any other
public man. His career his shown how
completely the conscience can be sep
arated from the mind in the perform
ance of official duty." To this Cleve
land made the following answer, which
shows the character of his regard for the
Western leader: "I don't care any
more about what Bryan says than the
wind that blows. Let him talk."
This tribute to the Xebraskan orator
can be counted upon to cement the kind
feeling existing between the two men.
"Editor William R. Hearst, campaign
manager of Congressman William R.
Hearst," as one of the dailies has it,
continues to give conscientious atten
tion to the interests of his chosen candi
date. Hearst headquarters for the East
ern States have been opened in New
York, nd for the Western States In
Chicago. It is stated that Mr. Bryan is
tacitly supporting the candidature of
Editor Hearst's nominee. The fact that
Mr. Bryan was recently the chief speak
er at a Hearst rally in Florida is the
strongest sort of evidence of the truth of
this assertion. If there is to be an alli
ance between these two men, it is dim
cult to foresee what concessions will be
made by each in behalf of a common
working basis. Mr. Bryan is flatly on
record as against any but a free-silver
man. Manager Hearst, for his part.
will not imperil the chances of his can
didate by having anything about free
silver in his platform. The compromise
will certainly have to be delicately

Paris, March 2. Former Minister of Foreign Af
fairs Honotaux has started an agitation in favor of in
tervention by the powers to put a stop to the Russo
Japanese war. High officials of the French govern
ment are deeply interested in the movement and count
much upon its success. Grave fears are entertained
that if the war continues much longer all of Europe
may become involved in it, and the Japanese victories
leave little ground for the hope that the war will come
to an early conclusion if the combatants are left to
fight it out without interference.
Since the movement for an intervention by the
powers originates in France, it is believed that Russia
will be the more inclined to give it favorable consid
eration. Japan may be less inclined to do so, but
could scarcely resist the combiued recommendations
of the neutral powers.
London, March 2. The rumors of proposed me
diation between Russia and Japan have aroused pro
found interest, but it is learned from the highest dip
lomatic authority that as yet no overtures have been
made to either of the belligerent governments, with a
view to ending the war.
If such overtures should be made, it is understood
that Japan will give them careful attention and may
possibly consent to mediation if assured that her vital
interests will be sufficiently protected.
London,' March 2 Again there is an absolute
dearth of news from Port Arthur or the vicinity of the
Yalu river. Some significance is attached to this
as possibly indicating that a fight is in progress at
Port Arthur, and that the use of the wires by corre
spondents has consequently been interrupted.
Rumors are current that the Japanese have sus
tained reverses, but there is no confirmation of these
The feeling is groiwng that China will become
involved in the war, as she persists in taking initiative
action against Russia in the matter of massing troops
and allowing Chinese brigands tobarass the Russian
flanks. The Yang Tse squadron has been placed on a
RUSSIAN FLEET CANNOT PASS.
Constantinople, March 2 The Turkish govern
ment is resolved to forcibly prevent the Russian Black
Sea fleet from passing through the Dardanelles. The
defenses to the straits have been strengthened, due to
England's threat to make a demonstration in case the
Russian fleet attempts to pass through.

Jameson Prime .Minister.
A brief dispatch from Cape Town
states that Dr. Jameson, the leader of
the famous raid, has become Prime
Minister of Cape Colony. Here is an
announcement to make us marvel.
Time, chance, and ability and what
ever else makes for man's elevation and
his downfall have wrought few more
remarkable changes than the one here
recorded. We all remember when
Jameson was perilously near the scaffold
as a result of that wild ride to Johannes
burg, which provoked an endless
amount of Hlfeeling between the Boers
and the English. We remember how he
was denounced, almost spat upon. And
now he is being bowed to as Prime Min
ister of Cape Colony.
Perhaps this dare-devil may prove
himself an able administrator. . No one
will deny that he is a man of ability. If
he can hold tight rein, upon his wild fan
cies he will certainlv show himself ac
improvement upon Sir John Sprigg, his
predecessor, who has been a trimmer,
setting his sails to catch every political
breeze that blew across the colony.
