Naturally enough when such conditions exist good people fall into criticising officers tor not enforcing tho law The Courier Is not at all inclined to shield any derelict officer but indis criminate criticism is often unjust Officers however willing can do nothing without witnesses and proper support and this is not always forthcoming even when appearances indicate positive guilt Again officers are not encouraged to frequent arrests when the pros ecution consents to a fine in one case and dismisses all the other cases It Is cheaper for the bootleggers to pay a tine of 50 or S100 onco every 4

islands of the West Indies and a consequent unprecedented increase of trade and revival of industry This was ono of the blessings promised to the peo ple of Porto Rica when Gen Miles ar my of invasion first occupied Porto Ri can territory It was this promise which led the Porto Ricans to so cor dially welcome American soldiers and to congratulate themselves on the fact that they soon would bo American cit izens It is reasonably certain also that the assured prosperity of Porto Rico in the near future will appeal to tho Cubans as a powerful argument in favor of the annexation of Cuba by tho United States They will seo the people of lit tIe Porto Rico free prosperous and hap py under American rule They will then realize fully tho inestimable ad vantages certain to follow annexation It

accurate practically all the cinchona bark from which the worlds supply of J quinine is made Ninety per cent of n the yield is shipped to Amsterdam now the cinchona market of the world the remainder being converted into luinine in the Java quinine factory at Bandoeng The secret of the manufacture of this drug has been most jealously warded andtitis Only of recent years success has attended the efforts of those who ventured to make a stand against the combination of quinine factories in Europe The trust had been particularly hard on the plant ers continually depressing the price of the bark and keeping the price of the manufactured article high making it necessary for the planter either to go out of business or to attempt to combat his taskmaster lIe followed the latter course The first efforts were not success ful the quality of the quinine being inferior and resulting in the Java ar ticle getting a bad name But now c the factory is well on its feet and the methods in use in the laboratories in Java are thoroughly scientific and up to date Mr F L Seely secretary and Treasurer of the Paris Medicine company e at St Louis one of the largest users of quinine in the world reports as the result of personal investigations in Java the conviction that the factory at Bandoeng produces quinine above the standard Which is of con siderable interest io the world at large as the Java product is sold much lower than the common makes Mr I Seely has given the world the benefit of his investigations into the Java in t I 1LABORATORY PLANTATION JAVA n11II dustry through the medium of a

one Manuel Incra Mamani and told there was good cinchona seed to be had b 7 a foreigner if Hiisskarl had been fooled Ledger bejieved the native bought of him 20 pounds of guaranteed seed and sent it to his brother inLondonlhe London brother communicated with the Dutch government in regard to his posses ton the whale consignment vas bought for GOO rupees bout 180 and sent oil Jo Java Ledgeri gave

and whipped him so severely that he died The 20 pounds of seed were sufficient to start the cinchona industry in Java Twenty thousand trees grew from the Ledger seeds and some of them are still standing These trees which are almost 50 years old are now used only for the seed The seeds arc planted in nurseries where the young plants are sheltered from the sun by leaf shelters As the Ledgers do not take to the soil very well they are grafted BARK DRYING IN THE SUN on to a red bark tree that flourishes in the soil but does not contain much quinine When the wound of the graft ing has healed the tall top of the red bark tree is cut oft and the improved tree transplanted from the nursery to the forest ro prepare land for these forests the jungle is cleared and the ground kept perfectly free from weeds and rubbish The trees are planted in rows and in such a manner the rains can sink deep into the soil When they are six years old the trees arc cut down The old way was to peel the 1 ON GOVERNMENT CINCHONA of ON bark and cover the naked trunks with moss but now it is considered better to cut the trees down close to the roots and near hJ plant new ones The trees are then cut into short lengths and the bark 1 beaten off by women Women and children assist also in the urther prepanjtjon of the bark The pharmnceutietlbarka the pipe bark is usually dried entirely in the sun It is placed sin great trays and while it is still green tfoinen and chil dren tie it into bundled They sit in the tray4and tri i quite at their ease When bark Fs dried in ovens the latter arc heated IHthe wood of the stripped trees After the bark is thoroughly dried it is roughly ground into powder Wa ter power which is abundant isusual ly employed for this process The powder is then packed into bags and the greater part of it sent to Amster dam whence it Is distributed fo dif ferent factories The remainder awe have said Is manufactured into quinine at Bandoeng- Bandoeng is about eight hours ride from Batavia the chief port of Java It is an attractive little town its long low houses built for irdpiualVcondi tiOhs Cinchona plantation liesall about Bandoeng from nine to thirty miles distant One may reach these plantations by anyone of three ways On the back of a pony in a pony cart or in a mountain chair carried by four natives On the way cinchona may be seer lit all styles from the tiny seed Tip to large forest trees towerins a hundred feet from the ground The dwellings of the planters are eminent ly comfortable not to say luxurious The refinements of life are not lacking on these Javanese plantations and the planters are cultivated intel ligent gentlemen The Peruvian bark industry has done not a little towards the evident prosperity of the country ranking today as one of the

Chronicle is 10000000 to be divided as follows 000000Sevenpreferred 650X000CommonIt is understood that the underwriting syndicate will furnish 3000000 cash receiving therefor 3000000 in debentures with a bonus of 1500000 preferred stouk and 1500000 common stock This company therefore starts out by presenting the underwriting syndi cate with 3000000 of preferred and common stock for their share of the plunder the balance of the common stock is doubtless pure water as is probably the case with the remaining 5000000 of preferred stock as only 3000000 in cash is used in the tract actionThe information Iis also given that the annual rapacity of the combine- dfonlfrns is 2000000 eases so if the salmon canned by the originalcom pan ts produced profit of 20 percent it will require the combine to increase paaikeeventually find its way into bank vaults as security for loans and when a tight time conies in the money market some bank will fail with large assets that are not immediately available The suf ferers will not be the trusts but the unfortunate depositors The increase of railroad fares and freight rates has been systematically oing on ever since the combinations were effected The freight rates have generally been increased in the round about way of raising the classirication The Buffalo Times says The Iarir American is now complete but the railroad rates keep the crowds away This iis corroborated by the man ager of the PanAmerican exr position whogivcout the following In formation We can cite ninny in stances where the railroads have put tip their rates far in

extensive than the hard coal ones and the softcoal trust will have to quite equal in capi talization the steel trust if not exceed it One thing is certain These leaders of the republican party did not

rJ ACTING UNDER COVER nepnbllcnnn Who ire Afraid to Leg JHlntc In na Open Manner Jefferson said I am not amongst those who fear the people but Jefferson was a democrat That republican politicians do fear the people is evident when they do not allow them to vote on measures in which they are interested Some hostile comment has recently been indulged in with reference to the referendum which the constitution of South Dakota allows says Louis Post in the Public Jt is objected that the referendum is not what it has been cracked up to be or it would have been resorted to in that state nut it has been resorted to and with gratifying effectiveness Last winter the republican ring tried to jam througha plundering meas uro in redemption of campaign prom ises In the senate the measure passed triumphantly and the house was ready to rush it throughas smoothly as Quay ran the corrupt franchise bills through the legisla ture of Pennsylvania where no refer endum right is reserved to the peo pIe Hilt at that point the ring met with a sudden and decisive check It ran up against the referendum clause of the South Dakota constitution Opponents of the corrupt meaN are warned the republican lenders that if the bill was passed a referen dum vote would be called for This would have sent the measure to the people for approval or rejection and the republicans dared not face such an ordeal Orders were consequently given and the tower house obediently defeated the measure One beauty of the referendum was here exempli fied It is not always necessary to resort to it in order to get tin bent fits of its protection Like n good match dog it may as often drive away thieves with a growl as with a bite THE TARIFF WALL USED Confront llrtvrenn Trunt 1rlrr of Iron nntl Steel nt Ilmne and AttriinU The industrial commission need not look far to find the evidence that at least one of the trusts the steel trustis selling its products cheaper abroad than in this country for the Baltimore Sun says That the mon ster steel consolidation with head quarters at Pittsburgh is using the tariff welt for all it is worth iis shown by the following paragraph in the Engineering News which knows what it is talking about The contract between trust prices for ror and steel to the home consumer and to the foreign consumer hay often been set forth but so frequently de nied that some actual figures may be or int1rJit tr altr Pjtcb fromrtand s a IS the American wire rods are offered delivered in Manchester at 2930 per ton Market quotations in the United States are 3J per ton Adding cost of freights etc it is clear that the wire rod maker is netting at least 15 per ton more profit from his American customers than from his foreign sales It is not strange that the iron and steel magnates deprecate any interference with the tariff The trust no doubt effects economies of production but the trust and the foreigner not the American consum ers get the benefit of cheaper pro duction The trusts naturally think tits present tariff satisfactory but the taxpayers object to it so long as foreigners are favored at their ex pense OPINIONS AND POINTERS There wont be any further bickerings of republicans concerning the tariff when once the trusts have said their saySt Louis Republic After all the screeching of the republican organs the Tom Johnson platform for the equal taxation of rail roads with other property was adopted bv the Ohio democratic convention The Standard Oil trust and the sugar trust control the foreign com mercial policy of this country hawing succeeded in closing the Russian ports to most of our productions Since the sultan of Sulu has been placed on our pay roll by the republicans he believes there must be ro change of administration The trusts and combines who also draw pay through the protective tariff believe- the same way- Rathbone and Xeely have nut yet been brought to trial for stealing the Cuban post office funds and Perry

the promise to all the old veterans who demanded Hannadand McKinley intended to carry it out before election but after election ii another matter There would seem to be another factional fight in progress among the republicans about the future of Cuba and the tariff on her productions One side represented by the New York Press would repel and impoverish Cuba the other side of which the In ter

Applied to the Hleh as to the LowThe Sacred fleas of Life Copyright 1901 by LouIs Klopsch N Y- In this discourse Dr Talinage show that there is a tendency to excuse bril liant faults because they are brilliant when the same law of right and wrong ought to be applied to high places and low text Daniel 433 The same hour was the thing fulfilled upon Neb uchadnezzar and he was driven from t men and did eat grass as oxen Here is the mightiest of the Baby lonish kings Look at him He did more for the grandeur of the capital than did all his predecessors or successors i Hanging gardens reservoirs aqueducts palaces all of his own plan ning The bricks that are brought up today from the ruins of Babylon have his name on them Nebuchadnezzar son of Nabopolassor king of Babylon He was a great conqueror He stretched forth his spear toward a nation and it surrendered But he plun dered the temple of the true God lIe lifted an idol Bel Merodach and com pelled the people to bow down before- it and if they refused they must go through the redhot furnace or be crunched by lion or lioness So God pulled him down I He was smitten with what physicians call lycanthropy and fancied that he was a wild beast and he went out and pastured amid the cattle God did not excuse him because he had committed the ttn in high places or because the transgression was wide resounding Ee measured Nebuchadnezzar in high places just as he would measure the I humblest captive Burin our time you Jknow as well as I that there is a disposition to pahalo around iniquity if it is committed in conspicuous place arid if it is wide resounding and of large proportions Ever and anon there has been an epic emic of crime in high places and there is not a state or city and hardly J a village which has not been called to look upon astounding forgery or an ab sconding bank cashier or president or the wasting of trust fund or swindling mortgages I propose in carrying out the suggestion of my text as far as I can to scatter the fascinationSaround iniquity and show you that sin is sin and wrong is wrong whether in high place or low place and that it will be dealt with by that God who dealt wfth impalaced Nebuchadnezzar Allwho preach feel that two kinds of sermons are necessary the one on the faith of the Gospel and the other on the morality of the Gospel and the one is just as important as the other t for you know that in this land today there are hundreds of men hiding be utliindthe commli tables and in churches of Jesus Christ whohave no ti business to be there nsprofessors of religion They expect to be all right with God although they are all wrong with man And while I wantsyovnto understand that by the deeds of the law no flesh living can bejustifsedand a mere honest life cannotenter us into Heaven I want you as plainly to understand that unless the life is right the heart is not right Grace in the heart and grace in the life so we must preach sometimes the faith of the Gospel and sometimes the morality of the Gospel It seems to me there has not been a time in the last 50 years when this lat ter truth needed more thoroughly to be presented in the American churches It needs to be presented today- A missionary in the islands of the Pacific preached one Sabbath on hon esty and dishonesty and on Monday he found his yard full of all styles of goods which the natives had brought He could not understand it until a native told him Our gods permit us to iI purloin goods but the God you told us about yesterday the God of Heaven and earth it seems is against these practices and so we brought all the goods that do not belong to us and theyare in the yard and we want you to help us distribute them among their rightfulowners And if in all the pul pits of the United States today rousing sermons could be preached on honesty and theevils of dishonesty and the sermons were blessed of God and ar rangements could be made by which all improperlyfatten I byianother man should be put in the eityihalls of the country there is not a city ball in the United States that would not be crowded from cellar to cupola Faith of the Gospel that we mujft preach and we do preach Moral ltyof the Gospel we must just as cer tainly proclaim Now look abroad and see the fascK nations that are thrown round differ ent styles of crime The question that everyman and woman has been asked hasbeen Should crime be excused because His on a large scale IB iniquity guilty and to be pursued of the lawjn proportion as it is on a small seal Shall we hate the penitentiary for the man who steals an overcoat from a liatrack anti all Canada for a roan to range in if be have robbed the public of millions Look upon all the fascinations thrown around fraud in this country You know for years men have Jaeen made heroes of andpiotorialized and hi carious ways presented to the public s though sometimes they were worthy pf admiration if they have scattered the fundsspf banks or swallowed great estates that did not belong to them Ol1ryoungmen have been dazed with this quick accumulation They have said Tlat8the way todo it VThats the use of oHrploddingonwith SBaalf wages or 8signli nt salary when we wiwestf life aid with I ht F j t 11ltratalt1faCl nsuch a fortul1e t t i tii t ti as that man has achieved A Different measure has been applied to the crime of Wall street from that trhich has been applied to the spoils which the man carries up Rat alley So a peddler came down from New England many yearsago took hold of the money market ofNew York flaunted his abominations in the sight of all the people defied public morals everyday of his life Young men looked up and said He was a peddler in one decade and in the next decade he is one of the monarchs of the stock mar ket Thats the way to do it To this day the evil influence of that profligate has been felt and within the past few weeks he has had conspicuous imita torsThere has been an irresistible im pression going abroad among young men that the poorest way to get money is to earn it The young man of flaunting cravat says to the young man of humble apparel What you only get 1800 a year Why that wouldnt keep me in pin money I spend 5000 a year Where do you get it asks the plain young man Oh stocks enterprises all that sort of thing you know The plain young man has hardly enough money to pay his board and has to wear clothes after they are out of fashion and deny himself all the luxuries After awhile he gets tired of his plod ding and he goes to the man who has achieved suddenly large estate and he says Just show me how it is done And he is shown He soon learns how and although he is al most all the time idle now and has resigned his position in the bank or the factory or the store he has more money than he ever had trades off his silver watch for a gold one with a flashing chain sets his hat a little farther over on the side of his head than he ever did smokes better cigars and more of them He has his hand in Now if he can escape the penitentiary for three or four years he will get into political circles and he will get political jobs and willP have something to do with harbors and pavements and docks Now he has got so far along he is safe for perditionIt a long road sometimes for a man to travel before he gets in to the romance of crime Those are caught who are only in the prosaic stage of I iriIf the sheriffs and con stables would only leave them alone a little while they would steal as well as anybody They might not be able to steal a whole railroad but they could master a load of pig iron Now I always thank God when I find an estate like that go to smash It is plague strnck and it blasts the nation I thanc God when it goes into such a wreck it can never be gathered up agcin I want it to be come fo loathsome and such an in sufferable stench that honest young men will take warning If God should put into money or its repre sentative the rapacity to go to its lawful owner there would not be a bank ra safety deposit in the Unit ed States whose walls would not be blown out and mortgages would rip and parchments would rend and gold would shoot and beggars would get on horseback and stock gamblers would go to the almshouse And remember that the man who gets his gain by iniquity will soon lose it all One moment after his departure from life he will not own an opera house he will not own a cer tificate of stock he will not own one dollar of government securities and the poorest boy that stands on the street with a penny in his pocket looking at the funeral procession of the dead cheat as he goes by will have more money than that man who one week previous boasted that he controlled the money market Oh there is such a fearful fascina tion in this dry about the use of trust funds It has got to be popular to take the funds of others and specu late with them There are many who Almostievery man course has the property of others put in his care He has administered perhaps for a dead friend he is an attorney anti money passes from debtor to creditor through his hands or he is in a commercial establishment and gets a salary for the discharge of his responsibilities or he is treasurer of a philanthropic institution and money for the suffering goes through his hands or he has some office in city or state or nation and taxes and salariesIare trust That is as sacred a trust as God can give a man It is the con centration of confidence Now when that man takes that money the money of others and jroeu to specu lating with it forhls owl purposes he is guilty of theft falsehood and perjury and in the most intense sense of the word is a miscreant So there has been a great deal of fascination thrown around libertin ism Society is very severe upon the impurity that lurks around the alleys and low haunts of the town The law pursues it smites It incarcerates it tries to destroy it You know as well as I that society becomes lenient in proportion as impurity becomes af fluent or is in elevated circles and finally society is silent or disposed to paflfafe Khere fs the3udge the jury the police affcer that dare arraign the wealthy libertine He walks the streets he rides in the parks he flauntsxhia iniquity in the eyes of the pure he1ago uncleanness looks out of the tapestried window Where is the law that dares take the brazen wretches and put their faces in an iron frame of a staie prison window Sometimes it seems to tare as If so ciety were going back to the state cf morals of

society I know not nor whether He will do it by fire or hurricane or earthquake but a holy God I do not think will stand it much longer I be liege the thunderbolts are hissing hotI and tht when God comes to chastise the community for these sins against which He has uttered Himself more bitterly than against any other the fate of Sodom and Gomorrah will be tolerable as compared with the fate of our modern society which knew better but did worse We want about 10000 pulpits in America to thunder All adulterers and whoremongers shall have their place in the hell that burneth with fire and brimstone which is the second death It is hell on earth and hell forever We have got to understand that iniquity on Columbia heights or Fifth avenue or Beacon hill is as damnable in the sight of God as it isII in the slums Whether it has canopied couch of eiderdown or dwells amid the putridity of a low tenement house God is after it in His vengeance Yet the pulpit of the Christian church has been so cowed down on this subject that it hardly dares speak and menII are almost apologetic when they read the Ten Commandments Then look at the fascinations around assassination There are in all communities men who have taken the lives of others unlawfully not as executioners of the law and they go scot free You say they had their provocations God gave life and Ha also has a right to take it and Ha may take it by visitation of Providence or by an executioner of the law who is His messenger But when a man assumes that Divine prerogative he touches the lowest depth of crime Society is alert for certain kinds of murder If a citizen going along the road at night is waylaid and slain by a robber we all want the villain ar rested and executed For all garrot iI fngrfor all beating out of life by a club or an ax or a slungshot the law has quick spring and heavy stroke but you know that when men get af fluent and high position and they avenge their wrongs by taking the lives of others great sympathy is excited lawyers plead ladies weep judge halts jury is bribed and the man goes free If the verdict happen to be against him a new trial is called on through some technicality and they adjourn for witnesses that never come and adjourn and adjourn until the community has forgotten all about it I and then the prison door opens and the murderer goes free Now if capital punishment be right I say let the life of the polished mur derer go with the life of the vulgar assassin Let us have no partiality of gallows no aristocracy of electrocu tion chair Do not let us float back to barbarism when every man was hisI own judge jury and executioner mdI that man had the supremacy who had the sharpest knife and the strongest arm and the quickest step and the stealthiest revenge He who willfully and in hatred takes the life of another is a murderer I care not what the provocation or the circumstances He may be cleared by an enthusiastic courtroom he may be sent by the government of the United States as min ister to some foreign court or mod ern literature may polish the crime un til it looks like heroism but in the sight of God murder is murder and the judgment day will so reveal it There are hundreds of young men who have good blood Shall I ask three or four plain questions Are your habits as good as when you left yoUr fathers house Have you a pool ticket in your

in the small of my back and right side It interfered often with my domestic and social duties and I never supposed that I would be cured as the doctors medicine did not seem to help me any Fortunately a member of our Or der advised me to try Peruna and gave it such high praise that I decided to try itv Although I started in with lit tle faith I felt EO much better in a week that I felt encouraged- I took it faithfully for seven weeks and am happy indeed to be able to say that I am entirely cured Words fail to express my gratitude Perfect health once more is the best thing I could wish for and thanks to Peruna I enjoy that wlinnie E McAl listerThe great popularity of Peruna as a catarrh remedy has tempted many people to imitate Peruna A great many socalled catarrh remedies and catarrhal tonics are to be found in many drug stores These remedies can be procured by the druggist much cheaper than Peruna Peruna can only be obtained at a uniform price and no druggist can get it a cent
