Dunn, of the Re­ publican State Committee, has been look­ ing over the political situation in this State. Although it is an “ off year,” ac­ cording to political parlance, he recog­ nizes that it is important that Republi- Coral. In a certain sense or degree it is of |can9 should keep their ranks closed and little importance to electors whether county offices are filled by Republicans, Democrats, Populists, or Prohibitionists, so long as the duties of the officers who j fill them are ably and economically 1 formed. But in order to^pfcggfve an<j strengthen party oreraakfttion, candidates for such officr^ftust be loyally supported, , ^|S£Tw1se the organization would become ^or, was #2,227,188,491.

It is announced that Senator Chauncey M. Depew is to be married. This time “ our Chauncey” does not deny the im­ peachment. The bride-to-be is Miss May Palmer, of New York. The date of the wedding has not been fixed, but the Sen­ ator admits that be does not wish to wait long. ____ Peter J. Devine, Troop H. Eleventh U. S. Cavalry, stationed at Fort Ethan Allen, Vt., for having spoken revilingly of Pres­ ident McKinley, has been dishonorably discharged from the army, forfeiting all pay and allowances due him, and will be confined at Fort Columbus, New York, for one year. Up to October 1st the total admissions to the Pan-American Exposition had been 6,247,058. Recently the attendance has been averaging about 60,000 a day, and should this continue for this month the total for the six months will be about 8,000,000, which, it ia said, will be suffi­ cient to clear the expense of the great show. The office of member of Assembly, how­ ever, is distinctively a political one, as it is the duty of legislators to uphold the prin­ ciples and policies o f their party. Aa Chair­ man Dunn points out, it is particularly im­ portant this year that the Republicans should secure a good working majority in the Assembly, that they may be able to carry into practical effect the reforma­ tory work in which Gov. Odell has en­ listed. What the Governor did last win­ ter is a matter of history. It is seen in the great reduction of the tax rate. It will be agreeably felt and appreciated when electors come to pay their taxes next winter. The State tax of Yates County this year is over (8,000,000 less than it was last year. It is confidently predicted that next year, if Gov. Odell shall receive the necessary legislative support in the work of retrenchment he has undertaken with characteristic vigor and ability, there will be no State tax at all. The importance of such a consummation should be apparent to the most obtuse, ard equally clear it should be to the same class that the accruing benefits would be so great and so highly appreciated by the people that the Re- loyally support local tickets. Through indifference or otherwise the Democrats should not be allowed to secure vantage ground this year, which will affoiu till* AT trenglfi\l'i a ^ c,ov®ESportant contests hereafter. Chairman Dnnn especially emphasizes the importance of securing a Republican majority in the Assembly that Governor Odell may be sustained in the reformatory work he has inaugurated for the material relief of the taxpayers of the State. Among other things he says: “ It is a natural tendency among voters to regard this as an off year in politics. No State officers are to be chosen, and for this reason there is not the interest which is shown when a candidate for Gov­ ernor is to head the ticket. It is, however, of the highest importance that Republi­ cans should be thoroughly awake. A Republican majority in the Assembly next winter will be necessary in order to complete the policies which have been commenced during the last year. If, for any reason, Republicans should neglect the Assembly canvass, so that the Demo­ crats secure control, the Assembly could block all measures which Governor Odell and the State Senate might desire in the interests o f the taxpayers. The wisdom of the policies which prevailed last year has Impressed the people of the State. The tax rate is the lowest it has been in almost fifty years, and this is something which will be felt by every taxpayer. “ Governor Odell last winter made im­ portant recommendations for bringing in new revenues to the State, and in the management of the State’s business in- Recltal at Keuka College, The chapel of Keuka College held a discriminating and appreciative audience last Friday evening at the song recital given by Walter Bentley Ball, baritone, from Columbus, Ohio.

His voice is resonant and of excellent quality; he sang with perfect vocal control and fine taste. Of the first group of English songs, “ The Sands O Dee,\ “ The Pretty Crea­ ture,” and “ Gipsy John,” were equally well given, though o f such varying styles. The Scotch and Welsh songs were, without exception, greatly enjoyed, while the quaint Manx ballad was extremely interesting, from a historical point of view. At the close o f the program enthusiast­ ic applause was responded to by a noble selection of Beethoven. The Central Association . T he quarterly report of County Treas­ urer J. M.

Unfortunately the offend­ ers have not been identified. They ought to serve a term in a penitentiary. America’s cup remains in the United States. The decisive contests were close and exciting beyond all precedent, but they were all won by the Columbia. In the last race Shamrock II crossed the line two seconds ahead of the Columbia, but lost .on time allowance. As before Sir Thomas Lipton accepts his defeat with such grace as almost to cause many Americans to wish that he might have won. Sir Thomas Johnstone Lipton, the own­ er of Shamrock II and a multi-millionaire, started out in the world a poor boy, and without any adventitious aids he amassed his wealth in business. In 1865 he came to this country and spent some time in South Carolina and other States. When he returned home he had (500, which was the foundation of his fortune. Self-made men of distinction are quite rare in the old country, which is one of many other evidences that Sir Thomas is a remarkable man. e One of the most turbulent and disgrace­ ful strikes that ever effected this coun­ try has just been settled in San Francisco through the complete discomfiture of the strikers. It was begun in July last by teamsters, and has resulted in two mur­ ders, four deaths, and thousands of as­ saults. The strikers sought to win by their brutal assaults on non-union men, and in the struggle cowardly officials did little to uphold the law. Finally the eit- ..nation became ao intolerable that good pepple began to consider the advisabilty of organizing a vigilance committee, whereupon the strikers surrendered. Nearly all of the great strikes this year have resulted disastrously to the strikers for the reason that they were withont justification. It is reported that Booker T. Washing­ ton, the noted colored educator, of Tus- cagee, Alabama, was entertained recently at the White House on special invitation from the President. It is understood that President Roosevelt takes an active inter­ est in the educational work of Mr. Wash­ ington, believing that its tendency is to­ ward the elimination of the color line in the South. It is likely to be many years, however, before the bitter race prejudice of this country will be obliter­ ated or approximately so. The reason for this is that the prejudice is the strong­ est with those who are the most ignorant and depraved. President Roosevelt is pleased to have Mr. Washington as a guest, but notwithstanding the latter’s lofty character and remarkable ability be could not obtain food and lodging in some of the fourth class hotels of this country, and in many States he could only ride in jim-crow cars. The surplus in the U. S. Treasury at Washington is growing notwithstanding the material reduction of the Spanish war tax effected by Congressional legisla­ tion ilast winter. It is undoubtedly true that a large surplus has a tendency to be­ get legislative extravagance, but it is in­ finitely preferable to a deficit, such as has generally afflicted thecountry under Dem­ ocratic free trade rule. What a contrast there is between the financial situation of to-day and that which afflicted thecountry under the last administration of President Cleveland! Then there was a universal paralysis in every industrial line and the gold surplus had nearly disappeared. The issuing of bonds became a necessity and a Wall Street syndicate was permitted to negotiate them at an enormous profit. Now the surplus continues to mount up, the per-capita circulation has increased greatly, as have our Lxports. In short, the contrast is as prosperity unexampled to universal blight. ly, would derive great prestige there­ from. It is safe to assume, therefore, that Boss Crocker, 01 whoever may be the Democratic leader at Albany next winter, will interpose every obstacle pos­ sible in the way of Gov. Odell’s attempts, and should he have the aid o f a majority of the Assembly a sudden pause would be given to every reform effort. The duty of Republicans in supporting assembly nominations is therefore clear and unmistakable. Fred U. Swarts, our nominee for the office, made a record in the last assembly which is unassailed and unassailable. He was in accord with all the reform measures of the Governor, and carefully protected the interests of his constituents. In view of his legisla tive record alone he is entitled to the loyal support of his party, and this duty is accentuated in a great degree in virtue of the facts to which we have briefly re* ferred. _____ ^ ____ Why Not ? The servant girl problem, with which there has been considerable wrestling for some time, still remains unsolved. A re­ cent case in Chicago, however, sheds a small gleam of light on the question, which may eventually lead to a full and highly satisfactory solution. A young man of fair features, who had received some instruction from his moth­ er in the culinary art. was without a job. Learning that there was a great scarcity of kitchen help, an idea struck him, which hejdecided to carry into practical effect. Donning female attire, which made a disguise which defied the closest scrutiny, be applied for work as a domes­ tic at a pretentious residence in Hyde Park. His offer was accepted. For sev­ eral weeks he filled the situation to the complete satisfaction of his mistress. He was willing, respectful, and obedient. Moreover he proved to be an excellent cook. But, alack and alas, his sex was finally discovered and he had to go, to the great discomfiture of himself and his employer. The incident, however, illustrates how the servant girl problem can be solved Domestic service has become distasteful to young women and they are gradually displacing young men in various posi­ tions, as clerks, stenographers, etc. Now the young men without occupation or means of support could fill the places made vacant by the girls. It has been demonstrated that house work, and cook­ ing especially, can be done as well or bet­ ter by male help than by female. And if the latter will not do such work, there certainly should be no objection to per­ mitting men to perform it. The home is the natural place for women, and domes­ tic service, all things considered, is more independent, easier, and as well or better recompensed than service in office or fac­ tory. But if young women cannot be made to see these facts, and their failure to do so creates a serious problem, the young men ought to be allowed to solve it in the way referred to. The exchange, although somewhat novel as well as un­ natural, would be warranted by the situa­ tion. Indeed should the present regret­ table trend of affairs continue such a so­ lution may be forced. interest of sound business and common sense. The legislature acted on these suggestions. During the summer the Gov­ ernor has studiously visited the public in­ stitutions and the canals, and has exam­ ined carefully into the management of the State’s property. He has brought his strong business sense to bear with a view to continued reductions in the cost of the State government, the results of which are likely to be seen next winter in still further economies. It has been his de­ sire to so conduct the afiairg of the State that direct taxation may be abolished, and this relief to the people is one of the great aims of his administration. That it may be possible for him to carry out his ideas and put tthe management of the State’s affairs into this most satisfactory and desirable condition he must have the backing of both branches of the legisia- ture next winter. Tammany, under the leadership of Richard Croker, and other Democrats throughout the State, whether they follow Croker’s lead or not, would be only too glad to deprive Gover nor Odell and his party of the prestige which would result from carrying out this pro­ ject, and they will make every effort to control the Assembly that they may block the Governor’s policies. Hence the im­ portance of electing a good working ma­ jority of Republicans cannot fail to be appreciated by every taxpayer. “ It is Impostant, too, that Republicans make their best showing for their county candidates. Every Republican chosen in every county this year strengthens the lines for next year, when State officers are to be elected, and there ought to be no breaks in any county which is Repub­ lican in its sentiments.

She was born in the town of Benton, Aug. 8, 186s her father, Daniel J. Haines, being a highly respected farmer and miller. Early in life, with her parents, she became a resident o f Penn Yan, where she was graduated from the Academy in 1882. In 1891 she was married to Mr. John H. Cook, to whom was born a little daughter, Edith May. At the age o f 17 she united with the Presbyter­ ian church o f this village. Her Christian Ufe was most exemplary, and in the church, as out o f it, she was always cheerful and helpful. Her pres­ ence was a benediction, her acquaintance was a blessing. Her sunny nature and genial manner won for herselfa host of friends who sorrow at her loss. Her home was one of the most happy until dis­ ease laid hold on her system and sne was com­ pelled to seek the higher altitudes of Colorado and theAdirondacks. She ia survived by her husband and child; a sister, Mrs. Mary Barber, o f Rochester; and three brothers, Mr. John W. Haines, of Bellona; Mr. Adelbert D. Haines, M. D., and M. George C. Haines, o f Rochester. Her funeral was held from her late residence on Benham street, Oct. 5th, conducted by her pastor, the Rev. D. Henry Palmer, D D., assisted by the Rev. Eugene Haines. In the beautiful Oc­ tober afternoon, while the sun was nearing the western horizon, she was laid to test on the hill­ side sloping toward the setting son, to await the coming of Him who is the resurrection and the life.

TheVjfi&Jdent is responsible for the character and personnel of the ap­ pointments in every State.— Albany Ar­ gus. During the craze some years ago ques­ tions like the above were quite common. For the year ending August 31, 1901, the exports of this country amounted to (1,500,613,236, a gain of nearly (600,000,- 000 over those ot five years ago. During that time our exports increased only (110,000,000. In other words and figures, our exports have increased 50 per cent, in five years, and our Imports only 15 per cent, daring the same time. It is also an important fact that of the increase of ex­ ports the greatest has been in the pro­ ducts of the farm. Our Democratic friends used to predict that our high tar- riff would act as a Chinese wall ; that if we did not permit free European compe­ tition with our home industries we would be unable to sell our products abroad. The figures given above show that they were false prophets, as usual. It is reported that an Anarchistic paper in Chicago in referring to the assassina­ tion of President McKinley approved of the act, and characterized Czolgosz as a martyr. That kind of deviltry cannot be stopped in this country too quickly. If there be now no law for its suppression, let us have one in every State at the earl­ iest possible moment. The Chicago Tribune , which has kept, for the last twenty years, a record of lynchings in the United States, has re­ cently published the statistics of these defiances of law, and it has been truly said that its account is one that may “ well make the country blush for shame.” The total number of persons lynched during that period is 3,130. Of these 2,516 have been put to death at the hands of the mob since the year 1885. Divided, ac­ cording to sex, 51 of this number of 2,516 were women, and 2,465 were men. Di­ vided, according to color and nationality, 1,678 were negroes, 801 whites, 21 In­ dians, 9 Chinese, and 7 Mexicans. Be­ ginning with 90 lynchings in 1881, the number rose in 1892 to 236. Since 1892 there has been a marked decrease, the number in 1900 being 101. Classifying the lynchings since 1885, according to sections of the country, it will be seen that much the larger portion of them took place in what were the former slave States. Those States furnished 2,058 in­ stances of execution by the mob out of the whole number, 2.516, for the period mentioned. The States and Territories in each of which there have been, during the whole period from 1881 to 1901, less than 20 lynchings, are as follows: Ari­ zona 17, Washington 15, New Mexico 15, Illinois 14, Ohio 13, Iowa 12, the Dakotas it, Oregon 9, Michigan 5, Minnesota, Nevada, and Alaska each 4, Maine and Pennsylvania each 3, New York 2, Con­ necticut and New Jersey each each 1. The only States where, during the last twenty years, no person has been lynched, are Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Ver­ mont, New Hampshire, Delaware, and Utah. Mr. F. C.

Of | cau8e of his attitude toward the army un­ der the command of Gen. Shafter. Others are also criticizing the Admiral in that respect. Will the Admiral ask for a Court of Inquiry ? course out Democratic friends would like to have a breach between President Roosevelt and Senator Platt. But they are not likely to be gratified in this re­ spect. It ia not unusual—in fact, it Is common—for the Senators of other States to have great influence with the Presi­ dent in the distribution of patronage. Why should any discrimination be made against the Senators of this State? Dur­ ing the administrations of Presidents Hayes and Garfield such discriminations were made, as the result of bitter fac­ tional strife, and the Democrats profited by the results. It is not surprising, there­ fore, that they desire to have history re­ peat itself. It is difficult to overestimate the per­ nicious work of the “ yellow journa's,” but greater contributors to Anarchy are demagogues, political and otherwise, who excite discontent and class hatred.

Stone, an American mis­ sionary in Turkey, of many years’ ser­ vice, was recently kidnapped in Turkey, near the Bulgarian border, by a band of Bulgarian outlaws, by whom she is now held captive and a ransom of (110,000 demanded. The first demand was that the money must be paid on the 8th inst., or Miss Stone would be murdered. It ia now stated that the time for payment has been extended. Active efforts are mak­ ing in this country to secure the neces­ sary amount for Mias Stone’s release. It is a distressing situation, which is accent­ uated by the fact that payment of the ransom may encourage similar outrages in the future. Turkey should be made to pay the ransom, but unfortunately this country is not in a position to make a strong demand to this effect, as it haa often pleaded the baby act when foreign­ ers have been maltreated in the United States. Great interest is obtaining in regard to the probable attitude of President Roose­ velt in respect to the Southern situation. It ia believed that a strong effort will be made at the next session of Congress to reduce the representation in Congress of those Southern States which have disfran­ chised the negroes. It ia said that Presi­ dent McKinley was strongly opposed to such action by the last Congress, and the question now arises whether President Roosevelt will take the same attitude. The former’s objection was based on the ground that the proposed Congressional action would revive sectional hatred, now nearly obliterated. The answer to this is that eternal justice and the man­ date of the Constitution rise above indi­ vidual views on any question of political or other policy. The nicest line of Hats and Capa in town.

There ia only one way to cure deafness, and that is by constitutional remedies. Deafness is caused by an inflamed con­ dition of the mucous lining of the Eustachian Tube. When this tube is in­ flamed you have a rumbling sound or im­ perfect heating, and when it is entirely closed deafness is the result, and unless the inflammation can be taken out and this lube restored to its normal condition hearing will be destroyed forever. Nine cases out of ten are caused by Catarrh, which is nothing but an inflamed condi­ tion of the mucous surface.

C l a i r v o y a n t E x a m i n a t i o n F r e e By Dr. E. F. Butterfield. There Is no subject that requires so much study and experience as the treatment and cure of chronic diseases. The astonishing success and remarkable cures performed by Dr, Butterfield are due to the g ift of clairvoy­ ance, to the long study o f the constitu­ tion of man, and the caring of diseases from natural causes. Let those given up by others call for an examination. He cures the worst cases of scrofula, catarrh, piles, female weakness, asthma, diseases of the heart, lungs, and kidneys. He will be at Knapp House, Penn Yan, Wednesday, October 9, 1901. D R . E . F . B U T T E R F I E L D Will be at the Knapp House, Penn Yan, Wed­ nesday, Oct. 9 . He gives Free Clairvoyant examinations. Here is one of those astonishing results made by Dr, E. F. Butterfield in five weeks’ treatment of P. Maine, a substan­ tial farmer of North Wilna, N, Y. Let him tell his own story: My Dear Doctor— When I came to you five weeks ago I had given up all hope of ever being well. My neighbors had all given me up as even beyond all hope of even relief. Some of them told me to try Dr. Butterfield. I had become very emaciated, was coughing a good deal and severe racking pains in my stomach, a good deal of sickness of stomach, urine scant and high colored, pain in back of head. On examination you did not say you could cure me, but that you could help me. After taking your remedies three weeks there has been a wonderful change; my appetite has become splendid, I sleep like a child, and, strange to say, my own neighbors did not know me. They would not believe such a marvelous change could be wrought in three weeks. I nave been splendid ever since. I have had one pull-back and that was when I ate a chicken pie dinner. Pros­ pects seem good that I shall obtain both health and strength. Refer anyone to me. Yours truly, P. M ain e . North Wilna, N. Y., March 14, 1900 TAKE NOTICE.
