TERRIBLE STORY TOLD BY
WEST INDIAN FRUIT
NEW YORK. May 18.-A story of
dfath and hardship due to mosquitoes
was told by Captain Frederick Weeks
navigator "of the Vcreston, a small
British steamship now in port from
Kingston. The vessel was brotiRnt
to New York by a crew of negroes
htr.-in.te nearly all o( the regular crew

fever due to the insect bites, tne
Vereston had gone up the Maderia
River, a branch of the Amazon 1700
miles from Fara, with railway sup
plies. There was a stop at Porto
Velpo for 21-days and although the
men were screened m at night, they
were bitten in the daytime by huge
mosquitoes. Of the 23 members of
the crew 18 contracted the fever.
Two firemen were so emaciated
when thev cot to Kingston that their

no ice with the public, as it some
times does with the officer; they want
an honest play of the law with all
whom the law touches, for the law
never touches any man save him who
offends it; the people never fail to
reward the man who does his duty,
no matter what the duty is; it is the
best recommendation an officer can
hav in the popular estimate, and is
the invariable reason why the reliable
and straight-forward officer nearly
always succeeds himself in place.
It is simple matter for the officer
to establish; once he is known as a
man who cannot be tampered with
nor deflected from the rigid course
prescribed by the laws and ordinances
that record clings to him like a gar
ment and does him credit every time
it is quoted; while, on the other hand
every time he serves a private in
terest in derogation of the mandate
he should enforce, he weakens his
standing with the people and cuts
the ground from beneath his own feet
It does not matter that he is, tenta
tively, under the momentary sway of
the man "higher up" that never yet
dtood for an instant, with the people;
the man above is the man the people
are after and the officer who has th
courage to kick down the pedestral
on which a "boss" stands, does a favor
almost, incalculable for his constitu
ency and deserves, and gets, the
grateful recognition he has won.
We, with all men, here, hope ih:
good work will go on, until this city
is brought to a pass, where no man
will have a solitary civic advantage
over his neighbor in the eye of the
law, and that the officers who bring
this about shall fore-gather all the
merit and credit coming to them by
reason of their good faith to the peo
ple whose votes and money maintain
' And it is not alone in this direction
that the grounds given over to the
children effect decisive advantages;
the moral and physical health are
safeguarded in the freedom of the

The rise of temperance sentiment in

In blocking the wheels of govern

THE INCOME TAX.
For the sake of the poor man of
this country we agree heartily to the
income tax, graduated to meet the
ratios of income as a direct ta
should, and we believe the ordinary
run of poor men will consent to it
freely and gladly if it may be used to
spare them the harder and harsher
indirect tax upon their substance,
wrought by an inspired tariff.
We would like to see at least one
half the cost of Uncle Sam's main
tenance provided for from this source,
and taken from the hampering bur-'
dens now thrust upon all men by the
trade combinations of the country.
The people are becoming restive;
they know 'hey are being robbed any
way, and have a rational preference
for the realization as to just how
nmch and whence the theft is and
hails from; knowing the source and
amount, they might be more tractable
and yield their share less grudgingly;
but the knowledge that they are vic
tims, and the ignorance of the loss
and the real thief, makes them dis
trustful and cantankerous and likely
to do some extraordinary voting in
the near years to come.
A small, well-adjusted millage upon
every income in the land over $1,009
per annum, should raise the millions
essential to the Government's obliga
tions and general dignity, and we fail
to see why it is not used; it would be
immensely fairer than the system now
in vogue, and would fall with
Experience is a dear school, but all

Five hundred pianos were found in

The downward turn in wheat prices
registers the favorable weather which
is reported from the great producing
