O ur exports of live cattle for Feb ruary show a falling off of nearly 3,000 head, due to the German pro hibition. The March showing will be still worse, as France has joined Germany in the embargo. This il lustrates how the Democratic tariff policy is capturing “the markets of the world.” O n June 1, the city of New York will celebrate the formal opening of the Harlem ship canal. This is 8 miles long, 350 feet wide and 15 feet deep, and has cost 93,000,000. It connects the East and Hudson rivers at the upper end of the city, and saves 30 miles to vessels descending one river and ascending the other. The city has been trying to build this canal since 1829, and has just suc ceeded in completing it. Cuba, and Anuexatiou. That is the probable explanation of disaffection in the island, the govern ment's distrust of the volunteers and the unusual reinforcements hur ried across the Atlantic. THE ‘'HALF DOLLAR” nEN. Have you noted that the extreme silver men, except the Colorado senators, are opposed to the inter national monetary conference? The reason is plain to the thinking. They want to force free coinage 16 to 1 on this country alone; they do not want silver rehabilitated in such a way as to really increase its in trinsic value. Why? , What they want is a cheap dollar that will enable debtors to swindle their creditors. They insist upon free coinage by the United States without waiting for the co-operation of the great commercial nations. But it is not simply the men who have lent money who would be swindled. Every man who lias a little pile of savings in a savings bank would lose half its actual value by this juggle with the “dollar.” So would every veteran, every veteran's widow or child drawing a pension. The poor old soldier who is receiving, say, $12 a month, would still get twelve of the things called dollars, but he could only buy half as much with them. And so would many other classes of people be swindled, and the workingman most of all. If, through international rehabili tation of silver, that metal should rise to $1.29 per ounce, the silver extremists, the “cheap dollar" men, would lose all interest in silver coinage. They would shift their ground to some other dollar that was cheap and would contain an element of fiatism. In other words, they are not fighting so much for silver as for a fiat dollar. In other words, they want to change the atcual value of the present dol lar, so as to swindle somebody.— Toledo Blade. Senator Morgan of Alabama, and Governor Atkiuson of Georgia, says the Globe Democrat, are not the only Americans who would be glad to see Cuba annexed to the United States. Nor is the sentiment of that sort con fined to the south. It is as strong above Mason’s and Dixon's old line as below it. The attitude of the north toward annexation has changed radically since the war. Before that time the absorption of Cuba would have meant an enlargement of the area of the slave territory and the The Niagara Aerial Tramway, addition of two or four senators in While the harnessing of Niagara congress to the defenders of slavery. may rank as one of the engineering On that account the south advocated triumphs of the age, it certainly can annexation and the north opposed it. not rank as one of its aesthetic tri Emancipation having changed the umphs; but now a new scheme for conditions has disarmed the north’s attacking poor Niagara has been hostility to the project. evolved, this time not in the interest Of course, nobody wants the Unit of commerce or of manufacturing in ed States to secure the island by con dustry, but simply as a money-mak quest.

An astonishing event has hap pened at the university of Oxford, England. A Mr. Robertson, so the story goes, won two fine scholar ships, the Ireland and the Craven, lately. That of Itself was not so re markable. The scholarships of course have to be won by somebody every year. The extraordinary thing about the matter was that Mr. Robertson was a distinguished athlete in his college and a member of the university crew. It presents a combination of brain and brawn unequaled, we are com pelled to believe, elsewhere in the world. If athletes are going in for study, there is no telling what may happen. That the leader of a foot ball team, a baseball club or a stroke oarsman has any sense outside of such muscular accomplishments is something not to be taken for grant ed at present. Maybe in the future, however, we are going to have a race of college athletes who will also be fairly good, or even first-class scholars, up in their Greek, Latin and mathematics. If so, then the scholarship will not all pass over to the college girls’ side of the house, as it now threatens to do. And why, after all, may not a j'oung man be a good student and a good athlete at the same time? There is no reason. It has merely not been the fashion heretofore, that is all one can say. Maybe it will be hereafter. The Curfew that Shall Night. Ring To- Milwaukee had a million dollar fire on the 27th. Governor McKinley of Ohio will visit the Pacific coast in June.

Dr. Parkhurst is one of the latest acquisitions to the already large number of prominent cyclists in New York City. He has been taking lessons for the past two weeks at the hall of the Bidwell-Tinkham Cycle company in Fifty-ninth street, and is fast learning to ride. He will get on the road before many weeks are over. He goes at wheeling with the same earnestness that he shows in everything else, and thinks that within a year everybody will ride bicycles.

Hood’s Sarsaparilla positively Governor McKinley is traveling in the south for his health. He re ceived a letter in Thomasville from a hundred or more citizens of Geor gia, democrats and republicans alike, pledging him the solid vote of Georgia in the national republican convention, and assuring him of a fighting chance to get the electoral vote of that state, provided he will declare himself an advocate of free silver. The letter intimated a de sire that the republican platform of 1896 might contain a silver plank. McKinley replied that if the republi can party should declare for free silver he would decline to become its candidate, and would quit the party forever. A writer in the Ladies’ Home Jour nal refers to the establishment of the curfew bell in some parts of Canada, and thinks that if it prove successful there, it may eventually be intro duced in some parts of the United States. But the curfew is already an established institution in several places in California, and has been for some years. In Oakland, for exam ple, the third city in California, the curfew bell is always sounded at a certain hour, after which all children below a given age must be rounded up and put to bed or otherwise dis posed of within doors. It is alleged that the term “cur few” is derived from the French words couvre la feu, (cover the fire) STOHACH, LIVER and was originally sounded, after the Norman conquest of England, as —:) and (:— a notice for the people to cover their fires and retire for the night.

Hood’S Pills When the electrical water power transmission scheme at Niagara falls is finished, it will be the greatest enterprise established for such pur pose on the globe. But it is by no means the first, nor was it when it was planned. Already in the west, particularly on the Pacific slope, water power transformed into an electrical current has been sent to places where power was needed miles away. The San Antonio (Cal.) Light and Power company has for several years dispatched power to a plant 30 miles away. Scores of other establishments in California and other western states transmit power from water falls electrically over anywhere from 4 to 15 miles of wire. The great 5000 horse power dynamo made for the Niagara plant is constructed on the latest idea of Tesla. If power can be sent electric ally 30 miles, there is no reason why it cannot be sent 200 miles. That seems plain. Our Display Begins Monday, March 25th, Continuing Throughout Court Week.
