IIob80n having sailed for Manila,
news of bis arrival there will be
awaited with interest. The country
will be curious to learn whether dele

will be waiting on the wharf for
"This nation," says Mr. Bryan,
"can not endure half' republic and
half colony, half free and half vassal."
As no one has made the proposition
it is not worth while to demolish it.
But this nation can stand the results
of a Dewey victory.
The Aleutian Islands number 150,
the Hawaiian group fifteen and the
Philippines, according to one esti
mate, 1400. A total of over 1500
'islands in the Pacific insures for
Uncle Sam a commercial future in
the region where the day begins.
Mr. Bailey said in a recent speech
in Texas that if congress had recog
nized Cuban independence at , the
proper time there would have been
no war. The inference is that Spain
would have packed up and left with
out a fight. Mr. Bailey is an amus
A French paper says of the Ameri
cans and the Nicaragua canal: "Their
audacious contempt for all difficulties
will lead to that success which only
resolution, tenacity of purpose, with
the best machinery and an abundance
of dollars, can accomplish." Uncle
Sam's qualifications for a big under
taking are beginning to be understood.
If Grover Cleveland had gone
south when he was president, and
made a speech declaring that the
nation should care for the confederate
dead, and worn the badge of a con
federate veteran. Grand; Army posts
would not have passed resolutions
commending his acts. A different
sng would have been sung. The
difference is clue in part to the more
cordial feeling which has arisen be
tween the north and the south as a re
sult of the recent war, and largely to
the fact thut President McKinley,
liaviug fought with the union armie?,
has a better right to be magnanimous
than the president who hired a sub
stitute and staid at home. Spokes
stop to the talk from Cushman K.
Davis in favor of a league between
this country, England and Japan.
England is not the sort of a nation
which would enter into an offensive
and defensive alliance in time of
peace with any country. Still less is
the Unite! States a nation which
would, in the absence, as at present,
of all shadow of outside pressure, tie
its hands by such a compact, even
with England. There is a strong
probability that the relations between
the two countries will be harmonious
heieaiter. Certainly everybody in
this country hopes they will be so.
An alliance, however, would not pre
vent discord if there was a spirit
which tended in that direction in
both countries. An alliance can al
ways be evaded if there is a desire to
escape it, but an understanding based
on common interests and aspirations,
as at present, will be binding without
any formal agreement. The alliance
talk will find no favor in the United
Two Pointed Questions Answered.
What is the nee of making a better
article than your competitor it yoa can
not get a better price for it?
Ans. As there is no difference in the
price the public will buy only the better,
bo that while oar profits may be smaller
on a single scale they will be much
greater in the aggregate.
How can yoa get the public to know
your make is the beBt?
If both articles are brought prominent
ly before the public both are certain to
be tried and the public will very quickly
puss judgment on them and use only the
This explains the large sale on Cham
berlain's Cough remedy. The people
have been using it for years and have
found that it can always be depended
upon. They may occasionally take up
with eorae fashionable novelty put forth
with exaggerated claims, but are certain
to return to the one remedy that they
know to be reliable, and for coughs,
colds and croup there is nothing equal
to Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. For

How to Look Good.
To the credit of the young women
of Denver we are glad to say that
they did not forget their maidenly
modesty so far as to vie with each
other for the privilege of kissing
Lieutenant Hobson. In truth, the
osculatory exhibition was entirely
dispensed with in that city. It seems
that the further west Hobson traveled
the fewer 3Toung women he met will
ing to make silly exhibitions of them
selves. Hobson has almost reached
the danger line of ridicule, and there
is nothing that so fast destroys a man
in the estimation of the public as be
ing made a part of its laughing stock.
A"buse creates sympathy, but ridicule
gives birth to contempt. He yet has
time to pull himself together and not
permit his sudden leap into fame turn
his head so that the navy department
may lose confidence in him. This is
easily done, and to regain it may cost
efforts of a lifetime. Telegram.

peace commissioners are said to have
made that there is no widespread
popular demand in England for an
American alliance, ought to put a
