A Sax Francisco architect has
drawn 40,000 in a foreign lottery, ac

A New York lawyer has secured a

When a man can get a full set for 88,
this looks unreasonable.
Tom Reed's reason for opposing the
tariff bill is that a low tariff will pro

tarifflte newspapers expect a republi

Jerry Simpson declares that the
United States senate should be abol

be abolished. This is reciprocity.

The saloonkeepers of Iowa are also
displeased with the mulct tax law. It
seems that Governor Jackson had a

PATTERN DEPARTMENT On account of the increasing demand for Patterns we have
found it necessary to double our stock. Everything from an elephant to a full bridal outfit. Do not

Do Not Fail
WAsnixoTox, D. C. April 4. 1894.
Wall street has no use for silver money,
and it baa succeeded in impressing its
views on the president very completely,
and lie has indicated, in vetoing the
Bland seigniorage bill, that he would
agree to permit no further coinage un
less a bill was passed authorizing the
issue of $23,000,0(50 or more in gold
bonds a bill, it is safe to say, which
will never ba passed.
That veto, by the way, is the last
straw that permits a united demo
cratic party in the future while Mr.
Cleveland is president. Ever since he
was inaugurated he has been building
up a factional wing f the party, com
posed of the gold worshippers, just as
Buchanan did during his term as presi
dent, resulting in the breaking in two
of the party in 1SC0. This result
seems to be inevitable from the pres
ent situation. The refusal of Mr.
Cleveland to call congress together
last spring to act upon the tariff, as
demanded by the party through the
preBs; his subsequent call of the extra
session after his friends, the Wall
street bankers, had brought on the
panic, demanding the repeal of the
purchasing clause of the Sherman law
as the shibboleth of administration
favor; his making the approval of his
course on the money question the only
avenue through which patronage
would be dispensed, and finally, his
veto of the seiguiorage bill, which had
received the approval of more than
three-fourths of the democratic vote in
both houses of congress all these
things point inevitably to one result
that the party, to maintain its avowed
position, must part company with the
president and his bagatelle of gold
bug satellites from the east. Whether
this division will become a fixed fact
throughout the west and south this
year simply depends upon the courage
and independence of the democracy in
those sections. But that it is coming
no one gifted with political foresight
can question. The vote today in the
house on reconsidering the vote on the
vetoed Bland bill shows that the east
ern democrats have joined bands with
the eastern republicans in obeying the
dictates of Wall street, while a few
western republicans joined the western
democrats in sustaining that measure.
Pont de Loie is still very popular, but we have
a full line of Failles, Gros Grains, Aimures, Su
rahs. Chinas. Plain and Brocades Satins are gain
ing great popularity this season, and are very styl
ish. We have a Striped Wash Silk, fast colors, at
GUc per yard.
Sheetings, Muslins, Quilts, Pillow Case Mus
lins, Outing Flannels, English Flannelettes, and
we have these goods at the very lowest price on
the market, and before buying your new Sheet
ings, Muslins, etc , don't fail to lock over our
New Swiss Muslins in bordered goods, stripes
and dots. A large assortment of real Lace Cur
tains, also Madras Muslins, Nottingham Lace,
Icy Scrims, plain and printed Florentines, etc.
This is always one of the leading depart
ments in our store, but this year we have out
done ourselves. You never yet beheld such good
values at real hard-time prices. We call your at
tention briefly to a few of the various styles:
Vals, Point de Gene, Point de Ireland, Duchesse,
Torchon, Maltess, Brussels, Spanish Chautilly,etc.

The vote stood 144 to 115 not enough
to pass the bill over the veto.
Last week the house suddenly found
itself threatened with the necessity of
electing :i new speaker, but the
danger wa3 a very brief oie. The gov
ernor of Georgia had offered the vacant
senatorship, occasioned by the death of
Senator Colquitt, to Mr. Crisp, but it
only took that clear headed gentleman
a day to make up his mind not to ac
cept it. Meantime, however, the
tongue of gossip was wagging in a
lively raauner as to the election of a
successor. Messrs. McMillan, Hatch,
Springer, Bland and Bryan were all
talked of as possibilities with the
chances most favorable to the firt
uamed, because of his long service.
Mr. Bryan told his friends that he was
not a candidate, and united with others
in asking Mr. Crisp to decline the
proffered promotion for the good of
the party in the house. It was fortu
nate that Mr. Crisp saw his duty so
plainl) ; otherwise a bitter contest
might have ensued.
At last, after seven weeks of delay,
the debate on the tariff bill was begun
in the senate Monday Senator Voor-
hees opening with a two-hours' speech,
carefully prepared, in defense of the
bill. Senator Allison followed, con
tinuing over for an hour and a half to
day; and the fact was developed that it
is the republican program to delay ac
tion as much as possible. Senator
Mills then made a ringing speech of an
hour on the advalorem feature of the
bill as opposed to the specific duties of
the McKinley bill. His ringing voice
and eloquent utterances was in strange
contrast with the humdrum methedsof
senators generally, and aroused the
galleries to a high pitch of enthusiasm.
The man who can sit in the senate gal
leries and listen to the dull plaMtudes
of a senatorial debate, as a rule, is very
easily satisfied. He can hardly appre
ciate what it is to be bored.
It would be a godsend to the Amer
ican people were the constitution so
amended as to permit the people to
elect their senators by a direct vote.
The superatnuated old fogies who libel
the spirit of American institutions by
occupying seats on that floor would
soon give place to younger and more
active men, in accord with modern
thought and modern progress.
This department is now complete. We have
a full line of black and colored goods, in Ladies'
and Children's wear.
This is what we have been waiting to tell you
about. All the new shades in tans and browns
for Ladies and Children, hose to match. Watch
our windows and you will see the finest line in the
county; also in men's footwear.
The onlv houst) in town that carries a com
plete line. Everything in stock now for spring

Present appearances indicate that
two months or more will be consumed
by a useless and tiresome debate on the
tariff bill, and then a half month more
w ill be lost by conference debates an I

TRl'K IJKMOCKACY UNDISMAYED.
The following from the Dubuque
Herald givt-s evidence that soon the
western democratic clans will be gath
ering in force and the tariff reform
slogan will till the air with its notes
until hill and glen will echo thesouuds
back again, stirring the hearts of the
people and bringing them together for
another effort to secure that equality
before the law so essential to the pro
motion of the interests of the govern
ment collectively and individually.
Read from the Herald of the 6th inst.
and note the clear, distinct sound of
"The weak-kneed democratic sen
ators of New York, New Jersey and
the east may fear to make changes in
the tariff as demanded by the Chicago
platform, but the western democrats
have no such trembling. The key note
sounded by the speeches at the annual
banquet of the democratic Iroquois
club in Chicago the other night was
very defiant in its demands for the
carrying out of the platform promises
for tariff reductions. The western
democracy in its vigor is retreating not
a foot in its tariff reform fight. The
Iroquois club is an intellectual body of
democrats and well speaks for this
region. The whole tone of the speeches
was in favor of radical tariff reform
and even sounded free trade. As one
speaker well said: 'No man is guar
anteed liberty and th pursuit ot hap
piness while there is 65 per cent or 47
per cent, or any other per cent of
duties taken from him for the nourish
ment of his neighbor.' "
William Laidlaw, the young man
whom Millionaire Russell Sage used as
an improvised bomb-proof when a
crank attempted to dynamite him some
months ago, has been awarded $25,000
damages by a New York court. The
penurious Mr. Sage is doubtless sadly
reflecting that it would have been
cheaper to settle with the dynamiterin
the first place.

SENATORS BY DIRECT VOTE.
Representative Bryan of Nebraska is
.. . . - , , . -
continuing his good fight for the pas-
sajreof his bill securing to States the
right to choose senators by popular
vote, ii' they so desire. It is a fight for
true democracy, and tkere seems to be
every indication that it will be a win
ning fight. The purposes of the bill
have tieen briefly utlined in the Times
and the desirability of its passage is
generally unquestioned. It is Repre
sentative Bryan's idea, as well as the
idea of every right-thinking citizen.
that United States senators should be
chosen by a direct vote of the people,
rather than in legislative assemblage,
wherein coirupt practices may find
play. He seeks through this bill to
avoid the expensive and aggravating
institution known as a legislativedead
lock, and desires that every legal voter
be permitted to express his senatorial
preferences at first hand, and not
through the proxy of a handful of men
who too often betray the trust reposed
in them by their constituents, whom
they are morally bound to serve. The
measure is h wise one and should cer
tainly find favor in congress as it does
with the people. Already it is before
the committee on the election of presi
dent, vice-president and representa
tives in congress, and it is expected
that this body will reach a decision in
the case at its next meeting. This de
cision will be favorable if the desires
of the democratic masses are heeded
Every state is anxiously awaiting re
lief in the matter.
Oklahoma, which was thiown open
to boomers a little more than a year
ago, already claims a population of
250,000, which is larger than Delaware,
North Dakota, Wyoming, Montana,
Arizona, Nevada or New Mexico. It
has more territory than any one of the
twelve slates already in the union. Its
property has an assessed valuation of
$13,951,050, and increase of over $7,
000,000 in the past two years. It is a
splendid agricultural region. In the
past year the farmers barvested284,254
acres of corn, 222,319 acres of wheat,
109,374 acres of oats, 21.311 acies of
cotton, 18,735 acres of sorghum, 14,121
acres of Hungarian millet and 4,423
acres of broom corn.
