W03. if HIDES AND SHOES The Boston CommercIaT Bulletin, the leading commercial journal of Now England, which by the way is con trolled by the present lieutenant gov ernor of Massachusetts, while advocat ing the removal of the duty on hides, has been intelligent enough to see that the shoe manufacturers could not BuccessfuUy contend for free hides unless they were ready to assent to tree shoes. It has accordingly can vassed the tanners and shoe manufac-,,; turers of New England, asking this question: "If hides are free will you consent to have your products free?" Of the tanners twenty-nine replied In the affirmative and eleven in the negative. Of the shoe manufacturers 311 replied in the affirmative and 91 in the negative. It is certain that at no previous time could a similar result have been obtained. New England is devoted to protection and a large majority of these responses were doubtless from business men who believe in that gen eral policy. The averag...

Coercion and corruption, coupled with the desertion of gold democrats, were responsible for the deteat of 1890, while the defeat of 1900 was due to war enthus iasm and improved industrial conditions. The party has suffered defeat before, but it has not taltered in its purpose or abanuoned its principles. Did it not suffer deleat in 164 and again in 1808?

The doctrine that "God is using the wars of our times for the evangelization of the nations" Is not only an assumption, uut it is an exceedingly dangerous doctrine. If those who believe in tno protestant form of the Christian faith have tha right to wage war against a Catholic country for a religious purpose, then the people of a Catholic country have a right to wage war against a pro testant nation for a religious purpose.

The World correspondent says that at the time Col onel Woodruff's testimony was given, tho man who had charge of General Miles' herd and tho man who slaughtered the cdttle were in the Sol diers' home at Washington, but they were not called although the commission was requested to summon them. No serious effort has been made to question the accuracy of any of General Miles' reports. Every possiuie effort has been made, however, to humiliate him.

The skulls received at the National Museum are all from Borneo, where they were obtained by the ex pedition from the Dyak head-hunters, of the interior of that IsJana. The skulls are a genuine rarity, and the first examples of a most singular art that have ever reached the National Museum. The different Dyak tribes of the island of Borneo are eternally at feud with one another, and in their raids, forays, and battles, they make a practice of decapitating their ene mies. These they regard as trophies, viewing them in the same light in which the North American Indian braves once looked upon the taking of scalps; namely, as the visible evi dences of a wa...
