YoUMi li.uii-.nii, the son ol his lather,
was leititly "honorably discharged" lioin
his soil snap in tlie army, and the na
tional gossips at mice concluded th it this
was a slap at e Piesldent Harrison be
cause lie made only one speech for AU'Kln
leyduilug the late lamented campaign.
Now, the piesldent and the e-presldeut
dined at the home ol a mutual friend, and
the same high authoiity on goveiiimeut.il
atfalis deJates tint this incident was
worked up to prove to Ihe public tint
these great men ate gieat lilends when
everybody knows that they ale not.
h Is a long shot proposition that Hoo
did not die Itom the etfectsot halng at
West Point, which is alleged to hive
orcuieci mote 111. in a ye 11 ago. 1 ue young
lellow was not game, he would not stand
up and light, according to the ancient and
honorable custom ot the institution, he
ciiil the Academy hi mote or less disgr.ue,
assigning weak ejesas Ihe cause he was
trying to let himself down easy. Ihe
coiigtrsshin.il committee appointed to In
vestgate Ihe case will lecelve cold coiutoit
at "the lolnt,"i( it endeavors to make
a case against tlie cadets,
I'lll: suit broiit-t in httshuig tor the
appointment of a leceiser lor the Honana,
alleging fraud and conspiracy on the part
company's president, is really sen
sritioual. Those eastern capitalists don't
know anything about mining, for a fact,,
hut they can Rive the western operator)
cards and spades and then beat them in i
the k.i in e of thimble rigging a stock deal. '
I hey are experts in the operation of dig
glng gold out of the pockets of minority,
stockholders, all right, all right; even if
they are a t r i lie shy on information as to
the best method of getting the stuff out of '
the ground. It has been said with more
or less truth, that in the evolution of a ,
howling, gold-ribbed mountain wilderness
into a producing mining region, ;i job lot
i of litigation Is one of the necessary fac
tors. If such must be the case In eastern f A. CI. KM CO.

1111:11: seems to be no hope of the suc
cess of President Kruger's mission to Eu
rope, acknowledged to bean eff Jrt to secure
iiirervention In the HritisleHoer war. The
Preuch mob gave him a wot in reception,
hut he was handed a frost by the l:rench
government. In the lelchst.ig, at Merlin,
Moudiy, the Imperial chancellor, Count
Von Heulnw, replying to a question on
the subjeit of Mr. Kruger's failure to be
received bv Emperor William, said the
government did all hi Its power to ward
olf war, and It-It the two republics in no
doubt as to the state of affairs In liurope
and as to Herman neutrality. When, in
1K00, the question of arbitration seemed
not altogether excluded, the government
recommended it to Mr. Kroger. He
thought tlie time had not come. When
Mr. Kruger later sought Intervention his
leellugs weie too highly Inll.ited for the)
hutch and (lerm.in governments. l-or I
the (ierman government it was lost time
to give advice. Germany was convinced
th.it 'inv step of a great power at that j
moment would lead to no results.
