The country will be curious to learn whether dele gations of dark-eyed Filipino girls will be waiting on the wharf for kisses. "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 ing person. 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 man Review. 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 States. 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 better one. 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 eale by Blakeley & Houghton. 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.
