:ng sincerely desirous in the

nt, that the Cuban prob-

' de'ay, it was intimated by
j eminent to the government
of Spam some months ago that, if a
satisfactory measure of home role
were tendered the Cuban insurgents,
and would be accepted by them as
a guaranty of its execution, the
United States would endeavor to
find a way net objectionable to Spin
of furnishing such guaranty. While
no definite reeponce to the intima
tion has yet been received from the
Spanish goyernment, it is believed to
be not altogether unwelcome, while,
as already suggested, no reason is
perceived why it should not be ap
proved by the insurgent.
The message is a lt,ng one, and
of the ablest and most comprehend

livered. He handles eveiy question
of public interest, recommends that
the Wilson tariff law be left alone,
that greenback and treasury notes be
canceled, congratulates the country
on the progress if civil service re
form, and winds up by urging Con
gress to observe the most rigid
economy in public expenditures.
Newspapers throughout the coun
try speak of it one of the ablest
papers that ever eminated from the
brain of President Uleyelahd.
Electric Rittera is a medicine
suited for any season, but perhaps
more generally nepded, when the
languid exhausted feeling prevails,
when the liver is torpid and slug
gish and the need of a tonic and
alterative is felt. A prompt use of
this medicine has often averted
long an perhaps fatal bilious fevers

Sheriff Buchanan Monday ap
pointed Geo. F Earnhardt, of No. 9
township, as his deputy sheriff.
Mr. Barnhardt, up to the last cam
paign, was a Democrat, but went
over to the other side, and gave his
support to the opposition.
Mr. Will Propst, deputy under
Sheriff Sims, is of course displaced.
He has made a good officer, having
served years ago under Sheriff
Slough in the same capacity. He
has not yet decided what business
he will engage in.
Sheriff Buchanan stated to The
Standard that no change would be
made at the jail for the present, end
Mr. John Hill will still hold the
keys of that institution.
