considerable mounted force from England will be sent out Nine battallions of militia in addition to three which have already volunteered will be asked to volunteer for foreign serviceLondon Dec 19Bobs as Lord Roberts of Kandahar is familiarly known is a name to conjure with in Great Britain and that Lord Roberts and Lord Kitchener are considered the right men to retrieve the disastrous condition in South Africa is amply ev idenced by the more cherry tone of all the war discussion Monday morning In spite of the attempt of the author ities to gloss over the supersession of thefewotherwise than as a penalty for his failure A semiofficial communication says The disposition to regard the change as a reflection on Gen Duller is entirely erroneous As the forces engaged in South Africa increase of ficers of higher rank are naturally ap pointed to the supreme command The communication then instances the successive steps from Gen Symons to Gens White and Buller and now to Gen Roberts In spite of the the plausibility of the argument everyone recognizes that it is not the whole truthrrhe friends of Gen Buller see in the the headlong plunge of the cab inet a suspicious panic and they pic tore hasty conclaves and the ministers with blanched faces telegraph ing to Roberts and Kitchener to came and save the empire While perhaps these are overdrawn there is no deny ing that the prodigious exertion which the governnient considers nee essary to crush the two little repub lics shows that even sedate Lord Salis bury sees the extreme gravity of the present aspect of affairs General Lord

19A coincidence in connection with Lord Roberts ap pointment at the present juncture is the circumstance that he was simi larly appointed commanderinchief after the British defeat at Majuba hill On

passed the Tionse last Monday by a vote of 190 to 150 which commits the Republican party unequivocally to the gold standard Immediately after the passage the leading silver Republicans held a large and enthusiastic meeting at which they issued a strong party appeal as follows To the Members of the Republican Party Who Still Believe in Bimetallism The passage by the House of Representatives today of the gold standard and Bank Currency Bill exactly as agreed upon by the Republican caucus and without the opposition of a single Republican vote marks the culmin lion of a policy long and carefully pursued by certain influences in control of the leadership of the Republican party and justifies the tion of the men who in 1856 refused to remain in that organization after the adoption oftfreSk Louis plat formThe Republican platforms or 1888 and 1893 had been unequivocally in favor of bimetallism and the use of both gold and silver as sfandard money Nevertheless it was apparent several moneys before the assemblage of the National Convention of 1896 that the machinery of the paratY had passed wholly into the hands of the banking and creditor interests and that it was the purpose of the latter to commit the party to the advocacy and achievement of the gold standard Against t danger the undersignedand many other Republican bimetallists at that time vainly attempted to arouse the masses of the party After reviewing the plank whi cliin declared for both gold and sit in 1896 and reciting the dangers of the gold standard it concludes Thus fellow citizens the scheme we denounced in 1896 is nearing consumation The policy that was denied by the Republican party inthat campaign stands no confessed Millions of you who voted the Republcan ticket in 1896 would not have done so had you Relieved your party destined so soon to be the agent of the forces that now dominate it Millions atnd you were bimetallists in 1896 a remain so today Now l at t promises theu made you are clear ly

time he has not tried in vain At the outbreak of the Spanish American warhe was given the commission of Major and Brigade Surgeon of the Volunteer army filling that position in Cuba during the winter

Philippines After serving two months on the islands he was ord ered back to America and placed in charge of thesmallpox hospital in San Francisco Dr Williams relates many interesting stories about the Philippines The following are a few of the facts concern ing the customs habits and gen eral makeup of the inhabitants as given by him The people are very small in statute hut very in telligent being far superior to the Cubans or even to out own colored race They are very industrious considering the climate in which they live Their working hours are early in the morning and late in afternoon the middle portion of the day is spent in sleeping in some cool place or under some good shade Their food is largely rice and fruits using some few vegeta tables but never in any case do they eat meats The horses in that country are very small the laigest no more than 13 hands high They have but very few cowsno oxen at all and the principal beast of burden is the Caribou or Water Buffalo which they use the same as we do oxen in tbs country The have no birds and very few fowls Tht soil is very fertile the principal products are tobacco hemp and sugar of which none is manufactured on the islands The Manila rope which we get in this country is manufactured at Hong Kong China The country abounds in hardwood such as rose wood mahogony and ebony which is of the most durable kiud WILDIE in a
