A MORAL TOWN.
The Chewaucan Post of Paisley,
Lake county, is entitled to take the
linen from the Bhrub. It Bays of its
town: "In. this community of proba
bly a thousand souls there are but
four members of the church, only
four." It then goes on to praise the
high moral status of that community
and attacks the Bible itself, to show
that the Paisley article of self con
stituted morality and religion
ahead of the Christian faith because
there are claimed errors in the Gos
pel according to Matthew. Accord
ing to the Post s article and judging
from its merit and the extolled vir
tues of its citizens, if the Plaixdeal-
E had only two chances, Paisley or
hell, we would live in hell and rent
out Paisley. The writer remembers a
town in Western Missouri named Lib
eral There was a provision in the
deed conveying every lot that
the premises should never be used
for church or religious purposes and
if religious services were held on the
lot it should revert back to the origi
nal grantor, now .Liberal grew up
to be a moral community of- 2500
souls and the place was so moral and
virtuous that the citizens did not
know the meaning of the words lust
or vice and there was no single breach
m . 1
or tne moral coae Because tnere was
no code to break. It was a wide
open town warranted not to rip, r av
al, tear or run down at the heel, and
it was doubtless all that it claimed to
be by and for its citizenship accord
ing to the view taken from their
standpoint, but to an outsider it was
a cesspool of corruption and it finally
became such a stench in the '' nostrils
of the citizenship enveloped in the im
moral effluvia, that the free thinking
moguls petitioned the courts to set
aside the provision in the various
deeds to real, estate as against pub
lic policy and the best interest of the
citizens and State of Missouri. It
was done and churches now abound
In that town.. If any man wants to
see hell in its grandest light all he
has to do is to locate in a town desti
tute of, churches or church teaching;
and to advertise Paisley as a great
moral community of one thousand
souls and enty four church' members
is to advertise the place as a .place
for progressive, enterprising men
and their families to avoid as they
would a pestilence.

Methodist General Conference.
The committee having in charge
the consideration of the proposed
change in the church rules in refer
ence to dancing, cardplaying theater
going, has decided against recom
mending any change by a vote of 58
to 43. This result was reached only
after a vigorous and prolonged cofr
test in the committee meeting. A
minority report, presented by mem
bers of the committee who favor a
more liberal construction of these
rules will be offered before the con
ference. It is expected that the sub
mission of these two reports to the
general body will be the signal for

Republicans To Stand l$y Tariff.
Wasiiinoton, 1), C, May II, l'.lOl.
Much of the time bof 'U' the opening
if the Republican National Con veil ion

v the leaders of the ti.irtv to efforts to

platform of the party shall be, especial
ly with respect to the Tariff and reciproc-
ty. ltepea ed conferenc s have Immm
neld heio since the adjournment o. Con
jress. and the combined wisdom of the
foremost men of the party has beei
brought to bear upon the problems ol
the hour. The interesting feature of
these conferences was the disclosure that
there are no importan' differences ot
opinion noon the main ixiiuts in the
cardinal principles of Protection as an
nnuiiceil bv the Keimbliean party, and
the onlv differences which ari.-e are ovei
the phraseology. That this is imjiort

A studv of the national platforms of

wn been ton much lasitv and earete-s
in the enunciation of principle-
It is time for the Republican party to
take a stand on the-c miIii'm-Is. vital as
they are to national well being.
Among the most important decl.ira-
tions of party faith that will be made at
Chicago, those ertainini! to Protection
and reciprocity will be foremost. An I
upright and unmistakable staml on thes-
questions by the Republican party will
comiel the Democratic iwirty to do like-1
wise, and we shall not have a rep'tilion
of the shifting, halting pronouncement!-
of the Free-Trnde pirty. which have
been exhibited in different national con-
vemions f-ir f-.riy years. The fact is
that the De i , ratic party h is tried al
most every tne ie known to th rhetoric
of polities and piatiorm declarations, to
find some substantial grounds for oppos
ing Protection, and al the same time to
cover up the proposed assault uon this
essential principle of American economic
and iudu-trial progress.
The Democratic party will try new
tactics this ear. The party will co er

its Free Tinde de.-io w th do- l.iratiun
i about a "Tariff for revenue only." and
similar dark and niysteriousaffirinations
which may mean anything which the
proponents of the doctrine consent to
have it mean.
The republican conferences here the
past week have developed that there is
no difference of opinion of a subitatial
character among the leaders on the plat
form declarations. Tho Tariff issue will,
be met with an emphatic, stand for the
principles of Protection. In 1883, after
a Ioiik period of Republican domination
in national adults and long-life of a Pro
tective ariff, the party, though its ad
ministration in legislative and executive
departments, msde n revision of the
Tariff and the party revised the Tariff in
1890 and aain in 1897. The latter revi
sion was forced by the utter and con
spicuous failure of a Democratic Tariff
act to meet the needs of tho country,
but which had been demoralizing to
American industries and destructive to
the interests of labor and capital. With
such a record the Republican pirty can
be trusted to make such revision of ex
isting Tariff schedules as1, tho conditions
of the business of the country demand.
But tho fact will not be lost sight of that
tho Dingloy Tariff, so bitterly denounced
by the Deincratic party, has brought to
the country the industrial prosperity,
rise in wages, cheapening of commodities
and extension of markets which havo
combined to mnke the past live years
the most prosperous and beneficent the
country has known in all its history
with such a record of past achievement,
not only in making necessary revision
of Tariff schedules, hut in revising those
schedules upon Protection lines which
brought glorious results, there wi 1 not
be any cause for half hearted or doubt
ful utterances by thu Republican party
on the Tariff this year.
i ne reai issue ot mis year," earn n
prominent Republican, member of tho
Hotiae of KcnresentativeB from tlio
West, "will not be how or when the
Tariff shall be revised, but bv whom
mid for what purpose it shall bo revised.
Vnn will nlmnrvn tli.it ll. llmnnKrola
denounce Republican sumieationH that
the Tariff revision, when made, shall bo
tiindo by its friends. When tho peoplo
of this country get ready to abandon the
principles of Protection and resort to
Freo Trade and low Tariffs, which af
ford no Protection and which therefore
amoiit to Freo Trade, it will ho time to
invite mo uemouratic party to revise
the customs schedules. But the fact
is that the friends of the Tariff should
Iks the ones to make the revision, for in
making the changes they will coneult
tho best interests of the people, capital
and labor, and they will not roiisult tlio
interests of the iinporterH.
'It is also well to call attention to the
fact that if the Democrats are to he en
trusted with the work of revi-ini? tho
1'ariff the job will be done without ref
erence to the wishes of the industrial
and agricultural producers of the coun
try. It will be a case of dark-lantern
biiMiu-ss, just as was lint Wilson-tior-
mau act. The nmiufarliiters ami la
borers, the miners anil farmers, whose
interests are so closely linked with tin
import and export trade of thu country,
weru not consulted when the Democrat
ic laritt act ol 1MM was created. Tin
industries of the country knew nothing
4bout wh.it was in i-tore for them until
me uooii oi competing goods urcil in
ujon the country, doting the mills and
factories, reducing wages and to impov
erishing the people, that there was not
money enough out among the H.ople to
buy the 'clie.ip' foreign commodities?
which stocked the customs liotinvs and
the watehouM'S of this coun rv.

When the Russian Foreign Otlice de-
clared its intention of treating the trans
miners of wireless telegraph as spies
there was a general chorus of protest
but that the wireless telegraph intrO'
duces a new problem into warfare, and
that.it may very properlv be declared
contraband, is maintained bv the Elec
trical World and Engineer. It Is obvi
ou that belligerents suffer a doubl
peril from the presence of wireless teleg
raphy. First, news may be tran-initled
to neutral taints absolutely withou
censorship or control ; next, secret com
munication might be established be
tween the uews-ga'herer and one of the
belligerents in a manner that would def
detection. These two consideration
would seem to justify the lemjiorary
seizure, during an important oeration
of any news ves-el eo,uip-ed wilh a wire
less instrument. It would warrant on
proper warning, the confiscation of all
stich instruments as contraband. uch
is the view of the Electrical World and

W.siiiurroN, D. C, May 16. Accord-1
ing to a Tokio dispatch received at the
Japanese legation, the cruiser Miyako
was sunk by a mine at Kerr bay. The
dispatch reads: '
"Admiral Kataoka reports that on ,
May 14 a four-torpedo-boat flotilla con-1
tinned itt tea-sweeping operations un

constructed temporary batteries on a
promontory bet ween Kerr bay and Tdi-;
enwnn bay, and there placed six field
guns besides a hastily-constructed tort.
"With one company of soldiers they
stubbornly resisted our attack. The flo

out its operations and destroyed five
mines laid by the enemy. Unfortunate'

six men were wounded. Two others
wero killed while the fight was in prog.
It is believed here, notwithstanding'
the fact that the dupalch mentions the
Miyako us a cruiser that the boat sunk
was a disp.itch boat. A dispatch boat
bearing the name Miyako, and of 1,800
tons burden, is given in the lists of Jap
anese war vessels, but no cruiser of a
similar name is mentioned.
