war as being as unjust aS ftscitvartltffiTSil Britain iis now waging against the Jio r republics Personally I shall iiuwr forget the generous and courteous toat ment that was accorded LOllle by the Americans sued particularly Admiral Schley He impressed use as a gallant otlicei and highminded gentleman in the fullest suuso of tae phrase- A priori should say that a man ofI noble principles and generous impulses cannot be a coward 1u such men I would rather look for Castilliuu bravery The naval battle of Santiago was short aud decisive so shop that there was no time for an exhange of compli ments so decisive that I can hardly be lieve that cowardice WLS thinkable The fight was over in about three hours aud threequartersHad captured in the days of ancient Rome my back might have been used as a stepping stone for the conqueror mounting his horse Adiuiril Schloy treated me on terms of absolute equality His flagship tho Brooklyn was wess iu the blockading line aud was there fore the most exposed She WitS engaged i in a running tight with the Yi caya and the Colon When the Brooklyn II and the Oregan got within range of the Colon they opened tire and the latter win compelled to run ashore The Cristobal Colon also struck her colors to the Brooklyn and the OreganThe Brooklyn holding the westward blockading position was within range of onr ships and batteries nil the time though our snips lackedcertain things necessary for full effectiveness Admiral Schtfiy showed ability aud thoroughnessYour went straight to work commandingAdmiral work allotted to him and therefore it does not seem to me that there is any room for adverse criticism at least iron the American side If any one should grumble it is 11 but I have said my say in the documentI published under tthe title of Guera His pano Americano tPhSICal and moral courage are two I different qualities There iis no need of using a miscrocopo to discover both in j the actions of Admiral Schley BRITAIN FAIRLY WARNED- New

splendid rain on Tuesday was a great blessing to our peoplo and to the famishing crops for which wo should ho thankful It is an assured fact that Fulton county will raise corn enough to feed her own people and a f good surplus for market True onoug the crop will bo short some fields ruin ed beyond help of rain some will not yield more than one or two barrels to the acre and yet there is a fairly good acreage that will produce fairly good yields Of that class of farmers who will not raise enough for their own con sumption and none for the market tho r burden will bo heavy but the front h1 has been so general covering such a vast territory that the general crop of the country must bo many million bushels I below the average aud this it i to bo expected will mike prices high r In this view we expect that Fulton i County farmers will get more aggre I gate money for their corn crops thf- a year than they did in 1000 t NOti BSE THIEF ARRESTED SHERIFF CARPENTER CAPTURES SAX CARTER L Sheriff

which is asked S I yearsisa answered text Proverbs 259 Dis f anotherfappears Solomons time f thefworld there were people too much disposed to tell all they knew It was blab blab blab physicians re 1 vealing the case of their patients I affairsIing the faults of the nextdoor resi t dent pretended friends betraying1 confidencesii Onehalf of the trouble of every community comes from the fact that so many people have not capacity to keep their mouths shut When I hear I something disparaging of you my first duty is not to tell you but if I 7tell you what somebody has said against you and then go out and tell others what I told them that I told you and we all go out some to hunt up the originator of the story and others to hunt it down we shall get the whole community talking about what you did do and what you did not do and there will be as many scalps taken as though a band of Mod ocs had swept upon a helpless village We have two ears but only one tongue a physiological suggestion that we ought to hear a jfood deal more than we tell Let us join a conspiracy that we will tell each other all the good and nothing of the illand then there will not be such awful need of sermons on Solomons words Discover not a secret to anotherSolomon had a very large domestic tircle In his earlier days he had very confused notions about monogamy and polygamy and his multi tudinous associates in the mats monial state kept him too well in formed as to what was going on in Jerusalem They gathered up all the privacies and poured them into his ear and his family became a sorosis or female debating society of 700 discussing day after day all the diffi culties between husbands and wives between employers and employes between ruler and subjects until Solomon in my text deplores volu I bility about affairs that do not be long to us and extols the virtue of secretivenessBy i ofa secret divulged families churches neighborhoods1 ofeasecret kept great charities social i ities reformatory movements and Christian enterprises may be ad vanced Men are gregarious cattle in herds fish in schools birds in 1flocks men in social circles You may by the discharge of a gun scat ter a flock of quails or by the plunge of the anchor send apart the deni zens of the sea but they will gather themselves together again If you by some new power could break the associations in which men now stand they 1ngain adhere God meant it so lie has gathered all the flowers and shrubs into associations i You may plant one forgetmenot or heartsease alone away off upon the hillside but it will soon hunt up some other forgetmenot or hearts ease Plants love company You will find them talking to each other in the dew You sometimes see a man with no outbranchings of sympathy Ins na ture is cold and hard like a ships mast ice glazed which the most agile sailor could never climb Others have a thousand roots and a thou sand branches Innumerable tendrils climb their hearts and blossom all the way up and the fowls of heaven sing in the branches In consequence of this tendency we find men coming together in tribes in communities in churches in societies Some gather together to cultivate the arts some to plan for the welfare of the state same to discuss religious themes same to kindle their mirth some to advance their craft So every active community is divided into associations I of artists of merchants of bookbinders of carpenters of Masons of plasterer of shipwrights of plumbers Do you cry out against it Then you cry out against a ten dency divinely implanted Your tirades would accomplish no more i than if you should preach ton busy ant hill a long sermon against sc crqt societies + llere ve find the oft discussed question whether associations that do their work with closed doors and admit their members by passwords and greet each other with a secret I grip are right or wrong I answer that it depends entirely on the na ture of the object for which they meet Is it to pass the hours in j revelry wassail blasphemy and obscene talk or to plot trouble to the state or to debauch tim innocent then I say with an emphasis that no man can mistake No Jut is the object the defense of the rights of any class against oppression the im OrOVJDentof the mind the enlarge incni of the heart the advancement of art the defense of the government the extirpation of crime or the kindling of a pure hearted sociality 1 then 1 say with just as much emphasis Yes There is no need that we who plan i for the conquestofrightover wrong hould publish to all the worla 0116 IP j r intentions The general of any army never semis to the opposing troops information of the coming attack Shall we who have enlisted in the cause of God and humanity expose our plans to the enemy No we will in secret plot the ruin of all the enterprises of Satan and his cohorts When they expect us by day we will fall upon them by night While they are strengthening their left wing we will fall on their right By a plan of battle formed in secret conclave we will come suddenly upon them crying The sword of the Lord and of Gideon Secrecy of plot and execution is wrong only when the object and ends are nefari ous Every family is a secret society every business firm and every bank ing and insurance institution Those men who have no capacity to keep a secret are unfit for positions of trust anywhere There are thousands of men whose vital need is culturing a capacity to keep a secret Men talk too much and women too There is a time to keep silence as well as aI time to speak- Although not belonging to any the great secret societies about ofI there has been so much violent discus sion I have only words of praise for those associations which have for their object the maintenance of right against wrong or the reclamation of inebriates or like the score of mutual benefit societies called by different names that provide temporary relief for widows and orphans and for men incapacitated by sickness or accident from earning a livelihood Had it not been for the secret labor organizations in this country monopoly would long ago have under its ponderous wheels ground the laboring classes into an intolerable servitude The men who want the whole earth to themselves would have got it before this had it not been for the banding together of great secret organizations and while we deplore many Things that have been done by them their existence is a necessity and their legitimate sphere distinctly pointed out by the Providence of God Such organizations are trying to dismiss from their asso ciation all members who are in favor of anarchy and social chaos They will gradually cease anything like tyranny over their members and will forbid violent interference with any mans work whether he belongs to their union or is outside of it and will declare their disgust with any such rule as that passed in England by the Manchester Bricklayers association which says any man found running or working beyond a regular speed shall be tined two shillings six pence for the first offense five shillings for the second ten shillings for the third and if still persisting shall be dealt with as the committee thinks properThere are secret societies in our col leges that have letters of the Greek alphabet for their nomenclature and their members are at the very front in scholarship and irreproachable in morals while there are others the scene of carousal and they gamble and they drink and they graduate knowing a hundred times more about sin than they do of geometry and Sophocles In other words secret so cieties like individuals are good or bad are the means of moral health or of temporal and eternal damnation All good people recognize the vice of slan dering an individual but many do not see the sin of slandering an organiza tion There are old secret societies in this and other countries some of them centuries old which have been wide lly denounced as immoral and damaging in their influence yet I have hun dreds of personal friends who belong to themfriends who are consecrated to God pillars in the church faithful in all relations of life examples of virtue and piety They are the kind of friends whom I would have for my executors at the time of decease and they are the men whom I would have carry me out to the last sleep when I am dead You cannot make me be lieve that they would belong to bad in stitutions They are the men who would stamp on anything iniquitous and 1 would certainly rather take their testimony in regard to such societies than the testimony of those who haying been sworn in as members by their assault upon them confess themselves perjurers One of these secret societies gave for the relief of the sick in 1S73 in this country 1490274 Some of these societies have poured a very heaven of sunshine and benediction into the home of suffering Several of them are founded on fidelity to good citizenship and the Bible III have never taken one of their degrees They might give me the grip a thousand times and I would not recognize it I am ignorant of their passwords and I must judge entire iy from the outside Fut Christ has given us a rule by which we maII judge not only all individuals societies secret and open By theirII fruits ye sVnll know them Dad I societies make bad men Good socie ties make good men A bad man will not stay in a good society A good man will not stay in a bad society j Then try all secret societies by two or three rules Test the first Their influence on home if you have a home That wife soon loses her influence over Jicr husband who nervously and foolish lly looks upon all evening absence as an assault on domesticity How are the great enterprises of reform and art and literature and beneficence and public weal to be carried on If every man is to have his world bound ed on one side by his front doorstep and on the other side by his back window knowing nothing higher than his own attic or lower than his own cellar That vile who becomes jealous of her husbands attention to art or literature oi religion or chari ty is breaking ber own scepter of conjugal power I know an instance I where a wife thought that her bus band was giving too many nights tt Christian service to charitable serv ice to prayermeetings and to reli Isystematically attends no church waits upon no charitable institution and is on a rapid way to destruction his morals gone his money gone and I fear his soul gone Here are six secular nights in the week What shall I do with them says the father and the husband J will give four of these nights to the improvement and entertainment of my family either at home or in good neighborhood I will devote one to a charitable institutions I will devote one to my lodge I congratulate you Here is a man who says Out l of the six secular nights of the week I I will devote five to lodges and clubs and associations and ore to the home which night I will spend in scowling like a March squall wishing I was out spending it as I have spent the other five That mans obituary is I fiwrittensand that ever get so far on the wrong road ever stops Gradually hisI health will fail through late hours and through too much stimulants he will be firstrate prey for erysipelas and rheumatism of the heart The doctor coming in will at a glance see it is not only present disease he must tight but years of fast living The clergyman for the sake of the feelings of the family on the funeral day will only talk in reli glous generalities The men who got his yacht in the eternal rapids will not be at the obsequies They haveC pressing engagements that day They will send flowers to the coffin will send their wives to utter words of sympathy but they will have engagements elsewhere They never come Bring me mallet and chisel and I will cut that mans epitaph Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord No you say that would not be appropriate Let me die the death of the righteous and let my last end be like hip No you ay that would not be appropriate Then give me the mallet and the chisel and I will cut an honest epitaph Here lies the victim of dissipating associa tionsTAnother test by which you can find whether your secret society is right or wrong is the effect it has on your secular occupation I can understand- how through such an institution a man can reach commercial success I know some men have formed their best business relations through such a channel If the aecrct society has advantaged you in an honorable call ing it is a good one but has your credit failed Are bargain makers now more anxious hov they trust you with a bale of goods Have the C men whose names were down in the commercial agency Al before they entered the society been going down since in commercial standing Then look out You and I every day know of commercial establishments going to ruin through the social excesses Ii gbeatenor cut amidships with the front prow of the regatta or going down under the swift hoofs of the fast horses or drowned in the large potations of cognac or Monongahela That secret society was the Loch Earn Theil business was the Ville de Havre They struck and the Ville de Havro

discuss his determination or even ad mit that he has asked for un inquiry since he could not do so without a breach of naval etiquette it is never theless true that the application has been made Washington July 25 Secretary Long in accordance with a r 1t est from Adm Schley Wednesday advised that officer that he vouM order u court of inquiry to cs miii into thu entire matter of Ada Schlcys course in the Santiago naval campaign Later the secretary announced that owing to extremely hot weather the court would not meet until Septem ber and that he would turn over his reception to the

department has been pre paring for several days was given to the public It is a document address ed to Adm Dewey as president of the court instructing him concerning tlw itsdirects that the entire matter oi Adm Schleys conduct during the operations in the West Indian waters shall be investigated making use of the very words employed by Adm Schley in his letter to Secretary Long It also selects cer tain distinctive acts of the rear admiral concerning the facts nut propriety of which it calls for par ticular investigation These points cover briefly Adm Schleys alleged delay with the flying squadron at Oienfuegos the slowness of his pro gress toward Santiago after leaving Cicnfuegos the retrograde movement toward Key West the effectiveness of the bombardment of the Spanis- fleet at the

Santiago With the exception of the last two counts the others practically sum up the criticisms of Adm Schleys conduct made by Secretary Long to the sen ate which the secretary characterized as Scbleys reprehensible con duet One of the important poin- tfin the precept is the direction Jo the court to report in its conclusions all the pertinent facts which it may deem to be advisable to be estab lished together with its opinion an recommendations in the premises The court will convene September 12 at the navy department Judge Advocate General Lemley who was designated as judge advocate of the court will now proceed wit the preparation of his case He will examine all documents and prepare a list of witnesses The court prob ably will sit for several months more than likely until after

JA BACTERIA IN COFFEE Onlo Grocer Convicted of Ylolatla the Pare Food Laws of the State Toledo July 30The jury In Judge Mecks court in this city hasI found James White a local grocer guilty of selling adulterated coffee The prosecution was based on a package of Arbuckles Ariosa coffee The State of Ohio through the Pure Food Commission prosecutedI White The case was on trial for nearly a month and attracted nation alattentionThe of Ariosa coffee conducted the defense for Grocer White The best attorneys in the country were retained to defend him but after a short consultation a verdict of guilty was returned by the jury The State of Ohio considers this a big victory Pure Food Com missioner Blackburn has been waging a warfare on spurious food arti cles and the department has been very successful The complaint of the State of Ohio was that Ariosa coffee was coated with a substance which concealed de fects in the coffee and made it ap pear better than it is The State charged that this coating or glazing was a favorable medium for the propagation of bacteria Prof G A Kirchmaier of this cityI a wellknown chemist was the prin cipal witness for the State He had made scientific examinations of sam ples of Ariosa purchased in the open market from Grocer White He found that each Ariosa berry con tained an average of 300 bacteria Mr Kirchmaier further testified that other coffees he examined contained few bacteria or none at nil He de clared that the glazed coffee was not a wholesome food product Chemist Schmidt of Cincinnati corroborated the testimony of Prof Kirchmaier The State did not present further testimony The defense through the Ar buckles who prepare this glazed cof fee secured some of the most emi nent chemists and scientists in the United States to give testimony in their behalf Prof H W Wiley of the United States Agricultural Department Prof Vaughn of Ann Arbor University Profs Bleile and Webber of the Ohio State University were called to defend Ariosa Dr Wiley had made a careful examina tion of the method of manufacturing Ariosa He toMof the 10000000 eggs used by the Ai buckles yearly in the preparation of this glazing On this point in cross examination the States attorneys deftly drew from him the information that these eggs might be kept in cold storage by the Arbuckles for a year or two at a time The experts who heard Dr Wileys testimony were pleased to be able to catch so famous a chemist The doctor atone point in his testimony explained very clearly how it is that the egg put into the coffee pot by the housewife settles the coffee He said that the heat coagulates the egg and as it sinks to the bottom of the pot it carries the fine particles of the coffee with it and thus clan fees the drink It is the act of coagulation in the coffee pot that does the work Later on in his cross examination he had to admit that when the eggwas put on Ariosa cof eoagud lated and as egg cannot coagu lated but once that the coating on coffee was of practically no value as a settler when it reached the coffee pot Prof Wiley acknowledged that the glazing might be a favorable medium for the propagation of bacteria al though he would not testify positive ly either way because he was not a bacteriologistProf of Ann Arbor University also a witness for the Ar buckles said he found bacteria on Ariosa coffee Prof Bleile another witness for the defense found any number of lively bacteria on the Ariosa coffee he examined and he agreed that glazed coffee surely was a more favorable medium for the propagation of bacteria than unglazed coffee The verdict of the jury in this case Is of national importance because a great ninny other states have Pure Food Laws like that of Ohio and it acl tion will be taken by other Pure Food Commissioners to prevent the sale of glazed coffees Pure Food Commissioner Black burn says The State is very much elated over its victory against this 0big corporation We are now con sidering the advisability of inform ing every grocer in the State of Ohio that it is an infraction of the laws to sell Ariosa and at the same time give warning to consumers that the coffee is an adulterated food

action o f the Porto lUico assembly by which free trade with the United States is now ushered in that paper says It brings the situation around to what Portoi 1Rico ought to have had as a matter of right by the circuitous route of n 16 per cent concession to expediency orm1ut ofapproved fidelity treats thisi subject at sonic length It says that thusafter threeyearsofquibblingand evasion does the plain duty of the United States to Porto Rico promise to jccome a fact Going into the his toryn of the great feud the Inter Oceani speaks its mind with charming frank ness It recalls the fact that Gen Miles promised the Porto IticansAmer lean rights that the president said that to grant to them free trade was our plain duty and that in responses all the people said Amen Then iit says the beet sugar lohhcamc to Washington with the Oxnard andI Myrick in charge and there was a panic And the Inter Ocean continues in this refreshing manner The ways and means committee rallied aroundII the lobby and demanded a Porto Rica tariff as a warning precedentaim tins Philippine sugar They declared the j Porto IJicans too poor to support theiri local government in the usual way How then too poor to pay taxes on their luxuries could pay the Oxuard tariff on their necessaries they could not explain but they insisted on the tariff Then the Portmeans proceeded to give the lie to the Oxnard lobby and its congressional helpers With the aidof American experts they reor ganized their finances and spent great sums on schools and public works Theywill spend this year near + 2000000 And they have done ant are doing all this without touching one dollar of time Oxnard duties at our custom houses That money nearly SfiOOGfiO lies untouched in the treasury at Washington t Thus have the Porto Ricans them 0

recording be cause of its bearing on an extremely interesting chapter of history And it has other values for the OxnardI lobby or its equivalent is still in busi ness Thosame influences that brought

Trouble Over Their Trade Policy with Foreigners The president fills and backs like a derelict ship as the tariff contro versy assumes more and more prominence Not long ago he was reported as strongly favoring reciprocity but now he docs not think that un constitutional and roundabout way of fixing the tariff can be accom plished according to the Chicago Chronicle which says An administration correspondent reports that Stir McKinley said to a member of his cabinet before leaving for Canton that he was not inclined to believe there would be either a revision of the tariff or an extension ofreel procity agreements during the next session of congress The correspondent further dc clares it to be the prevailing opinion- at the capital that the protectees pure read the riot act to the pres J ident to good purpose and that he 1 has already made up his mind once more to wander from the path of jplain duty It is understood apparently by those who are in a position tto know that Mr McKinley will make no attempt to mitigate our belligerent tariff in anyway except per 1 haps so far as to matte one more effort to have the pending reciprocity ttreaty with France ratified That he will fall in that may he jpredicted with entire confidence With such powerful republicans as Mr Aldrich arrayed against the French treaty in the interest of the jprotectees and with most democrats cpposed to such treaties on princi jpIe it will hardly be possible to se cure a twothirds majority for the French treaty or any other of the kind equaltwhich will defeat the treaties will also strangle any measure like that proposed by Mr Babcock to deprive of tariff protection trusts which arc abundantly able to sell their products anywhere in the word not only without protection but in spite of hostile tariffs This however will net end the trouble The tariff war already bf gun with Russia Italy and Germany will spread all over continental Ku rope and wax more furious A gro lp of the protected interests constant all1 ready heard in angry protest against the war on Russian sugar will in 1slat more and more upon a less hos tile tariff nil around and vast num bers of republicans who do not relish having to pay twice as much for American goods as foreigners pity for ftUni will join with the angry pro foreigncmarkets Thus a hot time is brewing in the very entrails of the republican party and of the protected interests which supply the party with sinews of war The rogues are falling out and lion cst mina are coming to their innings The latter can encourage both Betsy and the bear with strict impartiality Labor and the Trusts Harpers Weekly which iis still called a journal of civilization hut is 1now owned by republicans who are trust magnates pictures labor being blindfolded by walking delegates with the inscription lie doesnt need eyes with us to guide him This is done to prejudice the labor ers against the officers they have elected to look after their interest The organization of labor is a product of civilization that Harpers Weekly pretends to represent There could be no organization without of ficers placed in authority to carryout the objects for which the ovauti zation is created It shows the strength and intelligence of work ingmcn that they have accomplished this union and held up till hands of their representatives That is a great advance in civilization and if persisted in will accomplish the ob- I jcct they have in view the better mcnt of their condition The efforts of all good citizens should aid them in this that the trusts may not be
