A petition headed by H. Parker,
of (Georgetown, Colo., is being cir
culated m the Centennial state and
is causing quite a sensation, the
purport of which is to the effect
that all silver producing states se
cede from the United States and
become annexed to Mexico. The
mayor is quoted as saying that
"similar petititions will be in cir
culation throughout the silver bear

Georgetown has been requested to
take the initiative."
The chairman of the pop county

for the meeting of the faithful to

an opportunity for some perspiring
patriot to be appointed to a fat of
fice: An ex-farmer comes forward
with a scheme for increasing the
price of wheat that is both audacious
and interesting, says the State Jour
nal. He wants the farmers gener
ally to stop raising wheat and go on
the boards of trade with dealings
that will accentuate the growing
shortage. He wants them to plant
no wheat this spring, but to buy for
future delivery the amount they us
ually produce. If every farmer in
the country joins in this movement
there will be a tremendous shifting
from the supply to the demand side
of the market, and there should be
an upward tendency early in the
summer. But it would cost the far
mers a good deal of money, because
the wheat lands would have to be
planted to something else, and there
would be a glut in other crops, and
the loss there might be something
The Philadelphia Times, which
was thoroughly tickled when Cleve
land was elected president, with both
branches of congress strongly demo
cmtic, but the result has not evi
dently been what the Times expect
ed, for in a recent issue is found the
following: "The only one conspic
uous result of the present congress
thus far is an impressive lesson given
to the American people that the
democratic party is unfit to
crovern the republic. It has
politicians large and small,
small, while statesmanship
seems to have become a lost art
in the councils of that organization.
It is now more than six months
since congress met, and the single
thing it has accomplished to meet
the business necessities of the coun
try was the repeal of the silver bill,
and that would not have been accom
plished without republican votes."
Treasurer Weirner, of Custer
