In Kentucky the people registered the
most significant protest against boos
ism and gang methods ever recorded In
the annals of state politics. AH other
Issues were subordinate to the clear-cut
and well-defined Issue of "Goebelism."
The efforts of Mr. Bryan to divert pop'
ular attention from the high-handed
frauds that were prepetrated by the
Ooebel machine !n the Louisville con
vention were without avail. His rear
platform spellbinding tour could not
dissuade tha Kentucky Democrats from
their determination to avenge the out
rages that were committed to secure
the nomination of Goebel.
The regular democratic nominee stood
fir Quayism of the most offensive type
in state politics. He was not the choice
of the Kentucky democracy. His pollt
leal career was tatooed with corruption.
His nomination was accomplished by
unseating regularly accredited, dele
gates and substituting for them his
hired scullions.
The democracy of the "old school"
bolted the ticket. The republicans un
der the leadership of Taylor were unit
ed and harmonious. Goebelism was re-
buked and the Kentucky democracy
ag redeemed from boesism.

for htevy pension payment, but the
welcome monthly surplus Is reported
as has be usual of late. Unless some
thine; unforeseen happens there will be
a handsome surplus at the end of the
fiscal year.
Before the war the annual expenses
of the government were about J3T3.00
000, exclusive of the Poet Office Depart
merit, which .xtmes within a few mil
Uons of paying its way. Revenue now
is coming In at the rate of 5a.000,000 a
year, Including about Illfl.WO.OO from
the war taes, which, like the Dingley
tariff, have yielded more than the est I
mate. Thse results are due to a hgh
degree of prosperity, and the prosper'
Ity istdue to the Intelligent work of the
republican administration and the con
fidence it inspires. The new Congress,
republican In both branches, will begin
its labors without the leant misgiving
as to revenue. It is refreshing to find
democratic papers urging a reduction
In taxes. When they had a democratic
administration on their hands deficits
piled up steadily, and bonds were sold
largely to meet current expenses hi
time of peace. Now, In time of wax,
there Is more than enough revenue, but
a different party Is on deck.
The Insurrection In the Philippines Is
practically over. Our troops no longer
face an opposing army: they are only
chasing the fleeing leaders.
Congress will soon meet and will
decide as to our future relationship
with the Islands. It is certain that we
will retain the Philippines giving to
the several islands the form of govern
ment best adapted to their Individual
It will very probably be found the
difficulties In governing 'thoee far-away
possessions hve been overestimated.
Tlie Filipinos are not warriors and
they love an easy life. They are
treacherous, but not deliberately so
they are childishly, Irresponsibly way
ward. They can be controlled easily
if controlled rightly.
Aside from the soldier police and thej
number of uniforms on the streets
there Is no more In Manila to sugg-st
war than there is In Astoria. Ameri
cans, foreigners and Filipinos go about
the streets without thought of danger
and all on the most friendly terms.
This will be the condition all over
Luzon soon after we establish civil
government there and the people learn
our purposes.
The "robber bands" will not long be
very troublesome when the Inhabitants
realize that our army is there to pro-
San Francisco Call.
From the Portland Oregonlan comes
a curious argument against leglsla
tion In the direction of upbuilding an
American merchant marine. It says:
'Several San Francisco shipowner
were fortunate enough to have steamers
available for the transport service, and
the charter rates paid for these steam
er by the government have Invaria
bly been higher than the rates paid
foreign steamers for the same service.
As the people as a whole will foot the
bills for these transports, it will be teen
that the burden will rest more lightly
on them had every ship In the service
been under a foreign flag."
By reason of the lack of legislation to
encourage shipbuilding at home and to
put our mercl.ant narine on an equal
footing with that of other nations, the
United States, when the Spanish war
broke out. found !t Impossible to ob
tain enough American steamers to
transport troops to the seat of war, and
had to charter furign ships. In that
fao: the Oregonlan finds a reason for
not building American ships in the fu
ture. To must Americans the fact will
b'; a reason why we should build them.
It is not of advantage to any nation
to be dependent upon foreigners In
time "jf war, even though such depen
dence might be a little cheaper than In
dependence. But the Oregonlan Is wrong in argu.
Ing that reliance upon foreign vessels
is economical. Had the United States
possessed a merchant marine In any
way adequate to Its commercial rank.
It would not have had to pay such high
prices as It did for transports. Great
Britain has been liberal In granting
subsidies to shipping, and a a result
of her wisdom she was able a soon
! as President Kruger Issued his ultlma

itect their lives and property. The

w ho committed suicide Sunday by

Sh was well dressed a! seem J to

Her fund seemed to diminish and she
went to live In upper Eighth ave

a small restaurant conducted by Pfter
Kringel, who remained her friend until
the end.
She became despondent during the
last few months and frequently re
ferred to the "good times" of days
gone by.
She went out after the restaurant
closed on Saturday night and returned
shortly after 2 o'clock yesterday morn
ing intoxicated. Oolng to the kitchen
she drank carbolic acid. Cringle went
Into the room and found her uncon
scious. He called an ambulance, hur
ried her to the hospital where she soon
afterward expired.

CHICAGO, Nov. 13. President Har
per, of the University of Chicago, has
been granted permission by the board
of trustee of the university to under
take to raise 13,000 for the purpose of
sending an astronomical expedition to
the southern states to observe the total
eclipse of the sun on May 2S, IWV
Prof. Kurt Laves, who Is In charge of
hte department of astronomy at the
university and Dr. Harper say the ex
pedition is practically assured.
It I planned to have different mem
ber Of the party take observations at
a number or places in tne soutnem
states. The chief point of view prob
ably will be at John B. Stetson uni
versity, Deland, Fla., which Is affiliat
ed with the university of Chicago.
Other stations will probably be Chat

from the heavens a .aln di-s. There
were so many w l-ns.s to Ml of the
stnuige iHTUrr.-nce that there could be
no doubt of the .tccurney of the story.
Some mo whs elapstl before the re
markable phenom?inn was explained.
It was learned at List that some far
mers ri.r the northern oat of Mo
rocco had been thrashing wheat with
Halls when suddenly a tornado swept
over the ground and carried all the
what and chaff on the threshing cloth
Into the air. The clcith was swept clean,
though the wind storm w,s not
sufficiently violent to do any damage
to the workmen, who Ml to the
ground and saw to tlxir dis
may that th- result of their labor
hail disappeared In the air. There
smixl to be no doubt that the fall of
wh-at Ui Spain was the shabby trick
the tornado pluved the .MoriniaJi far
mers, the iai:i ha. ing b"ii wufied
ct-ar acro. the Mi-dlterraiKun before
it wis drepp'd to the earth.
A somewhat similar phenomenon
hasTecently b-n ob.TVil further eujt
of the Mediterranean region. A steam
er was on hi r way along the North
African coast from Asia to England
and had entered the ilnllta channel
between the island of that name and
the coast of Tunis, wh.-n a fine d'Jst
began to darken the air and Immedi
ately thereafter fell upon the vessel's
deck. Quantities of the dust col
lected and later submitted to a chem-
Ileal analysis In Europe. About a th'rl
of the dust consisted f rock particles
containing calcium, magm-slum and
Iron, proving, what the prevailing
wind had already Indicated, that the
dust had been carried high In the air
from the Sahara desert, paswUig over
the whole of Tunis and finally dropping
Into the Mediterranean.
Another curious occurrence of the
same sort occurred In Hungary In lHStf.
when there was a full of dust which
analysis proved to be identical with
the sediment of the Nile. The dust was
declared to have been brought on the
wings of the wind all the way from
Egypt. These Incidents show how the
atmosphere helps to change the aspeet
of the earth's surface by removing
small particles of matter from one re
gion and depositing them In another.
