Queen Victoria was eighty-two
year of ago. She wan queen of Eng
land more than half a century, dur
ing which time her nation attained
the highest development ever reach
ed by a Euroean power. The I'ng
gllsh joople called her "the Good
Queen." Hhe was, we believe, the
Uwt ruler England ever had.
The correHiKndMnt of the Associa
ted press learns that the cause of the
queen's death, as officially given,
was senile decay." The dcx'tors
have adoptd this expression as most
suitable and truthful. They attribute
the paralysis which attacked her as
secondary to tho general weakness
of her condition, nor is it considered
advisable for reisons of state, to in
timate that her Intellect was dimmed
by this particular form of disease.
The body of Queen Victoria was
embalmed, and taken to Loudon
The nvord of the last days of the
reign of Victoria is not easy to tell.
The corresMndent of the Associated
Press was the only correspondent
admitted to Osborne IIouo, and his
Interview with Sir Arthur John
Kigge, private secretary to tho late
Queen, was the only official state
ment that bad Ihvii given out. For
Heveral weeks the Queen had been
tailing. On Monday week she sum
moned Lord Roberta, and asked him
Home very searching questions re
garding the war in South Africa.
On Tuesdiy she went for a drive,
but was visibly affected. On Wed
nesday sh suffered a paralytic stroke,

It was her first illness in all her
eighty-one -ears, and she would not
admit that she was ill. Then her
condition grew so serious that,
against her wishes, the family were
rum moned. When they arrived her
reason had practically succumbed to
paralysis and weakness.

Nebraska Independent.
A missionary in a upeech In New
York stated that tho chief cause of
hatred of foreigners In China aro-o
from what is called the opium war.
All detent Chinamen look upon opi
um as the greatest curse that eer
befell the nation and they lay the
blame for the destruction that it
cause upon the "foreign devils."
They all know that the import of
opium was forbidden by their em
peror and that England waged a fierce
and cruel war ujHjn the Chinese un
til the einjieror was forced to with
draw the decree. It Ls said that about
100,000,000 worth of opium is an
nually consumed in China. This
terrible financial drain on so poor a
people la the cause of China's ex
treme poverty. Not only do the
better part of tho Chinese curse the
lay that opium was forced upon
them, but the sufferers from it al
so learn to hate a foreigner with a
hatred that has no parallel elsewhere
in the world. All this opium is
shipped Into China from India. The
English owners of the poppy fields
roil in wealth, call themselves Chris
tians and patronize the churches.
while the victims of their business
die by the million after suffering the
most horrible tortures ever Inflicted
upon the human body.
Carpenter, in one of his recent let
ters from China, describes some of
tho effects of opium upon the Chi
nese. He says: "The craze for the
drug is beyond description. I am
told that Chinese mothers often sell
their little girls to buy opium. Fa
thers sell their sons and husbands
tneir wives. Dr. Boebe, who is in
charge of the big hospital at Nan
king, said that he had a neighb r
who was an opium smoker. He spent
all of his money in gratifying the
taste, and when that was gone sold
his three children, one after the oth
er, and finally his wife, to satisfy
his opium hunger.
I sit and watch the Chinese dev
ils at their hellish work and as I do
so It seems to me that I can see the
pictures of the ruins which it is to
create as it is scattered through
out the Chinese empire. I can see
lens in which scores of haggard eyed,
yellow faced mortals are lying and
smoking away the wages which
should go to the support of their
families. There are women as well
as men, and children as well as
grown-ups. Here is a mother with
her baby at her feet lying before the
opium lamp. The piie has fallen
from her mouth and the little one
is playing with it, sucking it. I can
see tne opium parlors of the rich and
the hells of vice which I have seen
at Shanghai a score of pictures."
Is it any wonder that the Chi
nese hate foreigners, when they view
the miseries that foreigners have
brought upon them for the sake of
gold? Is it a wonder that they are
hard to convince that there can be
anything good in a Christian civili
zation that has wrought such misery
and woe in their midst? The gov
ernment that did this awful wicked
ness now demauds that the sover
eignty of China shall be turned over
to it and other nations professing
tne same creed. If China fails to
keep such a contract one that she
was compelled to make by superior
torce where is the moralist who
can blame her? Meantime about
six thousand of our troops are in
China. If they stay until
gotiations are all completed, they
will never see the green fields of
America again. They will die in
China of old age.

Hon. Seaborn Wright spoke elo

tory: The spirit animating the opposi

chills every generous thought and
deadens every holy feeling. It

Mr. Speaker, I stood in the door
of an humble cottage shadowed by
the factory's ma-Bive walls. The
mistress of this home was the wife
of a gallant Confederate soldier.
They ha1 seen better days. Death
had kindly come to him and he
slept. The remorseless hand of
necessity had driven the widow and
her children out from the old home
stead to the humble cottage. As I
stood, the gates of the factory swung
open and amid a hundred children
hers came. They were young child
ren. The kindly walls of the nur
sery should have been around them.
There was no spring in their steps,
no light in their eyes; their cheeks
were white, and I thought, standing
In the presence of the children of

would put no restraining hand upon

the gates and hid thf m entei; but, so
help me God, I would never give
them our children until their little
bodies had grown beyond the nur

Last night I sat with my wife by
the fireside of our comfortable home.
I watched my eight-year old boy lay

her credit, wrveking the fourth to
day at Enterprise, near here. Khe
left Wichita lat night to prevent
being hurt by a mob which pursued
her around town and threatened to
lynch her. As soon aa she arrived
in Enterprise she went to W. C T.
U. headquarters and held a consulta
tion with the women of the order
who had advised her to smash the
Shilling saloon, one of the finest in
the town. Later she armed herself
with a hatchet and rocks and pro
ceeded to the saloon of John Shilling
and opened fire, smashing the large
plate-glass windows, and then went
inside and proceeded to ruin the fix
tures. A large mirror behind the
bar, several pictures of women, a
large refrigerator, eight cases of wine
and many bottles of whiskey were
smashed. The bartender drew a
revolver and threatened to kill her.
but she laughed at him and dared
him to shoot. Twenty women of
the town stood guard in front of the
saloon while she demolished the in
terior. After the wreckage was com
plete the women went down the
street singing "Praise God, from
Whom All Blessings jlow."
The town marshal started to ar
rest her, but she dared him to touch
her on danger of being hurt with
her hatchet. He left her alone, and
at last accounts from Enterprise she
was still at large, but had not smash
ed any more saloons.
