TO INSURE GOOD SERVICE.
Smaller FoatefHce May Be Tat I'nilci
tke Civil Service.
WAsuraGTOi, Sept. 25. Both the
postoffice department and civil service
commission ar taking great interest
in the movement toward putting
fourth-class postmasters under the
protection of the civil service laws. It
is probable that before the end of this
administration action will be taken.
There are over 65,00! fourth-class
postofliees in the country and the num
ber is constantly increasing. Of these
some 20,000 carry salaries of less than
850 per annum, and at least half are
in places where, there is much greater
difficulty in finding a competent and
reliable person who is willing to serve
than in choosing between competitors.
It is obvious that there can be no
question of examination and certifica
tion by the usual civil service methods
in these offices. Several plans have
been suggested and a combination of
them will probably be adopted.
BUCK GANG CONVICtED.
Five Men Will lie Hanged for Assault
and Other Fiendish Crimes.
Fort Smith, Ark., Sept. 35. The
doom of the Ruck gang is sealed.
They were convicted in the United
States court of criminal assault. The
band was composed of Rufus Buck,
Indian; Lucky Davis, a negro; Lewis
Davis, Sam Sampson and Maomi July,
Creeks, and operated in the Creek na
tion about ten days during the latter
part of July and first of August, com
mitting the roost brutal, findish, bar
On August i they robbed the house
of Henry Hassan, near Sapulpa, I. T.,
and each in turn criminally assaulted
Hassan's wife. Hassan and Frank
Raney were carried to the woods by
their captors and made to dance
while the gang fired at the dancers'
feet, wrestle in a mud hole and fight
until they were exhausted. The ease
will not be appealed and the five
demons will swing on the day fixed by
' Senator Bker Favors Cuba.
Leavenworth, Kan., Sept. 25. In
a letter to the Chicago Tribune on the
Cuban question, Senator Baker said:
"From my standpoint, I believe that
our government should immediately
recognize Cuba as a belligerent nation.
,Then she would have the right to law
fully buy arms and enter into com
mercial relations with us. I believe
the Cubans are entitled to their inde
pendence." Would Disbar Loo mis.

FIRST OF TBE CATHOLIC UNIVERS
ITY BUILDINGS OPENED.
Papal Delegate Satolll Made the Opening
Address, and Was Followed by

In the Dedication According
to the Catholic Ritual
Washington Oct 3. McMahon hall,
the central building and the most
beautiful one in' what is to constitute
a group of buildings at the Catholic
university, was dedicated with impos
ing ceremonies at 3 o'clock , this after
noon. Rapal Delegate Satolli made
the opening address and was followed
by 'Cardinal Gibbons, who officiates
also in the formal, dedication, accord
ing to the Catholic ritual. Beside the
foregoing, many of the archbishops,
bishops and clergy from various parts
of the country j anticipated, including
Archbishop t'orrigan of New York,
Archbishop Walsh of Boston, Arch
bishop Ryan of Philadelphia and Arch
bishop Ireland of St. Paul.
The dedication of McMahon hall in
augurates the "work of the Catholic
university in lay branches, in addition
to the divinity branch which it has
conducted for tbe last six years. The
new schools are to embrace a depart
ment of philosophy, with Prof, E. A.
Pace as dean, and a department of so
cial science and law, with Professor
W. C. Robinson, late lecturer of the
Yale law school, as dean.
The actual work of the schools will
begin in McMahon hall to-morrow,
when at 9 o'clock students will be en
rolled by the registrar, and at 4 o'clock
the faculty will hold its first meeting
for organization and beginning work.
The structure dedicated has cost a
little short of $500,000 and the entire
amount was given by Monseignor Mc
Mahon. lie is now 15 years old and
has been fifty-three years a priest. He
inherited a small fortune and swelled
it to large proportions by judicious
real estate investments in New York.
On joining the faculty of the univer
sity he gave his entire fortune to it,
reserving only such small portion as is
requisite for bis personal comfort. In
recognition of this munificence the
pope conferred on him his present title

A PRACTICAL JOKE.
Many White Men Willing to Marry a Myt k
leal Chinese Heiress the Victims.
San Jose, Cal., Oct 3. Letters and
telegrams continue to pour into the
telegraph and postoftice addressed to
"Dip Sing Lee," the mythical Chinese
merchant prince, in whose name an
advertisement recently appeared in a
San Francisco paper offering flatter
ing inducements to any respectable
white man who would marry his
daughter, Moi Lee. There are at
present nearly 500 letters in the post
oftice addressed to the mysterious
"Hip Sing Lee."
A Pneumatic King Ordered.
Chicago,, Oct. 2. Dan Stuart has
sent to Chicago for a pneumatic ring,
to be used at the Corbett-Filzsimmons
contest. The ring is stakeiess, the upper
rope being on the same principle as the
tire on a bicycle. The floor is a big
rubber mat, which can be inflated
just sufficiently to make it a trifle
springy to the feet of the boxers and
yet not retard their movement A
fall on the pneumatic mat or against
the pneumatic rope, as hard as it
might, be, could not result in injury.
Mexico as a Last Kesort.
San Antonio, Texas, Oct., 2.
The Florida Athletic club have
turned their attention to the matter
of pulling the Corbett-Fitzsim-mons
- fight off in Mexico in
case it cannot take place in Dallas
or Indian territory. Prominent rail
road officials of Mexico are working
to secure the consent of the author
ities of the states of Coahuila or Ta

either in Nuevo Laredo or Piedras
Mew Woman's Bottle.
ATcnisos, Kan., Oct. 2. William
Leonard, while duck hunting in the
Missouri river yesterday, found
a bottle floating' in the water
with a blue ribbon tied around
the neck, lie broke the bottle
and found a delicately perfumed
note inside, inviting the finder
to write to Miss' Effie Cotten, Fores)

A few verses of love poetry accom

A term that is growing more com
mon in political and economic discus
sion in this country is "parrot talk."
It is used to distinguish the expression
of those who talk by rote, or with the
way the wind blows, if the weather
vane points in the way their interests
or sympathies tend. Judge Peter Gross
cup, of the United States district court,
Chicago, has been in California en
joying a summer vacation, and in an
interview with the San Francisco
Chronicle, speaking of the American
Railway union strike and the convic
tion of E. V. Debs, Judgo Grosscup is
represented to have said:
"The strike was purely a sympa
thetic affair, and, consequently, a
foolish affair. When the interests of
everybody became affected people
Withdrew their sympathy."
Here you have it pure selfishness,
Where would all the boasted liberty
mankind has wrested from oppressors
since the world began be now If per
sonal interest instead of lofty patriot
ism and sympathy had swayed the
herolo martyrs in the cause of emanci
pation of the human .race. Presum
ably the struggle of the .vassal
nations against rich Roman oppres
sors; of the Greeks at Thermoplus;
the assistance of the noble . and
disinterested Marquise de La Fayette
rendered the struggling colonies; the
efforts of the patriots of '7i to throw
off the yoke of Royal George; the self
sacrifice and devotion of John Brown
to the cause of emancipation all were
purely sympathetic. And if sympathy
had been withdrawn when the inter
ests of people in general became effect
ive, what manner of country would
Judge Grosscup be living in now? A
broader and more universal sympathy;
a quick mind to observe and arm to
defend the rights and liberties of oth
ers, and a tongue schooled to proclaim
justice to the humble and oppressed
has distinguished patriots from the
beginning of time, and it is the patri
ots who have made governments,
founded nations, and emancipated
men through sympathy, self-abnegation,
and sacrifice. It is sympathy
that now moves this nation to listen to
the voice of oppressed Cuba, struggling
in blood and rapine and crying aloud
from her chains for liberty, for sym
pathy, and recognition. How does
Judge Grosscup stand on this question?
If the supply of sugar from Cuba is
shut off and the interests of the sugar
trust are affected (hence everybody's
interests), is liberty and sympathy in
their e fforts to gain it to bedenied the
struggliL.' and long-suffering Cubans?

NEW YORK DEMOCRACY. .
Its Tolce Reflects the Sentiment of the
National Leaders of Democracy.
Every one has looked to the utter
ances of the New. York democracy at
its recent state convention for a state
ment of the attitude of the present na
tional democratic party on the finan
cial question. It is understood that
New York expresses the thoughts and
ideas of the present democratic admin
istration, and the real leaders of that
party its principles and purposes.
It is also understood that the New
York declaration' is to bo the national
declaration of next year. Hence all
us free silver advocates and believers
In government paper money watched
with eagerness for this authoritative
statement. Here it is:
We favor a sound currency and a safe bank
ing system which can be based only on an hon
est dollar of a single standard of value, the
standard of the civilized world. We oppose
the free coinage of 60 cents worth of silver Into
The government should go out of the
banking business and should limit itself to
safeguarding banking methods which will ex
tend throughout the country the money ad
vantages of the cities. The legal tender notes,
born of the necessities of a struggle for na
tional existence, should be withdrawn. Their
presence in the country is a menace to the
steadiness of bUKlncss and prevents the due
use of the silver dollars already coined.
If that don't give the average western
free silver democrat, at any ratio im
maginable, the lockjaw, we miss our
guess. Gentlemen, will you stand any
Is there any use to longer hope for
free coinage at any ratio? Can you be
patriots and vote with a party which
has gone on record in favor of destroy
ing the non-interest bearing green
backs? The time has come for all reul
democrats, whether known as free sil
ver democrats or not, to stand from
under. We do not believe any good
citizen cau vote for such a platform.
And yet there is not a particle of
doubt that such will be substantially
the declaration of the democratic na
tional convention next year.
Now is a good time to get out of that
party and into the people's party. If
you do so at once it will save you a
sickening humiliation next year. And
besides if you come with us now you
can do much more effective service for
yourself, your country, and the peo
ple's party next year. Don't put it off.
You know as well now as you will la
ter that you can no longer act with
such a tory organization. The whis
perings of hope are silent Bland,
Stone all patriotic democrats need
not entertain further hope of controll
ing the national convention for free
silver. Don't be longer deluded.
Come now. Butler (Mo.) Union.
Do You Swearf
Young men, don't swear. There is
no occasion for it outside of a printing
office, where it is useful when the pa
per is behind time. It also comes
handy in the proof reading, and is in
dispensible when the ink works bad
and the press begins to buck. It has
been known to entirely remove that
tired feeling of an editor when h
looks over the paper after it is printed.
Outside of a printing office it is a fool

MONEY OF THE" WORLD.
The Idiot Who Coined Thl Phrase Ought
to Ba Glen a Leathern MedaL
Those 135,000 Americans who went
to "Yurrup" the past season did they
load themselves down with . "intrinsic
value," 200-cent, "money-of the-world"
gold dollars, that are "just as good in
one part of the globe as another" and
"are never known to fluctuate in
Not a bit of it They simply went to
certain banks in New York where they
deposited their gold, silver, green
backs, silver certificates, national
bank notes, bank drafts on Chicagq.
and other large cities or whatever
money they happened to have in their
possession exchanged it for foreign
letters of credit or drafts on banks of
whatever country or countries they"
wished to visit, paid the discount or
"exchange" and got aboard an ocean
steamer with as little concern as
though taking a trip from. New Yorlt
to Charleston. ' '
- Probably not a dollar of gold in their'
pockets, and yet no worry least they
shall not be able to meet all demands
agahist them in any country on the
In securing this monetary peace of
mind they are no more indebted to the
yellow metal that is supposed to be
worth thirty times Its weight in silver
than they are to the "fifty-cent" dol
lars and "promise-to-pay dollars" that
are so loudly decried by the "money-
of-the-world" yawper. .
Had these tourists taken American
gold to Europe they would have had
to e'xehange it for other money, doubt
less at a greater discount than that
paid in New York.
American gold coin in England will
not pass current until the American
eagle has bocn bit over the head, oblit
erated entirely and the "lion and the
unicorn" stamped in its place.
They first destroy its money func
tion, make of it a commodity, when it
is on the same footing as American
silver, American wheat, corn or beef
then they turn it into English
American gold coins when Bent to"
foreign countries are either recoined or
sent back again.
If a man were to land in England or
Germany with a ten-dollar greenback,
a ten-dollar gold piece, and ten silver
dollars -all American money he
could take it to a bank and exchange
it for about 29 40 of their currency,
and he would get just as much for one
kind of money as the other. The dis
count charged would yield a profit in
sending the money back to this coun
try where it all goes at pari ;
Will not the "money of the world
idiot please change his yawp for some
thing sensible? Chicago Express.
, ALL SOUND NO SENSE.
That Dollar Only I Sound Which Bears
the Same Valne at All Times.
The Atlanta Constitution places
words together to convey force of
meaning in the following:
r "The catch-penny cry of 'sound
money is becoming, to be understood
by the people. It is all 'sound money
and nb sense.. The only 'soundness'
that money has or can have lies in the
fact that it is redeemable in the thou
sand and one articles and commodities
that people need, use and produce
every day of their lives. .There would
be no need whatever for money if it
did not enable people to exchange
their property and produce for other
articles and commodities that they
"Money is not a measure of value
for a mental operation cannot be meas
uredbut it is a monetary expression
of value. It stands not for gold, silver
or paper, but for the things in which
gold, silver and paper may be re
deemed. "If the gold dollar was 'sound in
1873 it is not 'sound' now; if it is
'sound' now it was not 'sound then.
If the dollar that will command the
largest amount of the products of
human labor is 'sound' money, then
the silver dollar was 'sound,' and it
was demonetized by the European
bankers and their agents over here
( while it was still a 'sounder dollar
than the gold dollar. '
"The people should think of these
facts. They are not complicated, but
they are vitaL They go to the bottom
of the whole money question.
"Shall we have fair prices or 6hall
we have ' low prices? Shall we have
prosperity or shall we have a continu
ation of the poverty that the south
has been getting a .bigger and bigger
taste of ever since the demonetization
of silver in 1673?"
SPEED THE DAY.
There Will Come tbe Day When Not Even
an American Citizen Can Own So Much
Through his agents in this city H
has been learned that Lord Scully,
who owns nearly 100,000 acres of land
in Illinois, as much more in Missouri,
and still more in Kansas and Nebras
ka, has taken out naturalization pa
pers in New York city. It is his in
tention -to make that city his future
homa He has purchased property
there and has ordered substantial Im
provement, in keeping with the taste
and station of his family. His object
in taking this step is to enable him to
purchase more land. The legislatures
of Illinois, Missouri and Kansas have
all passed laws prohibiting an alien
from acquiring real estate. His agents
spent last year and a portion of the
present year in Missouri, where they
bourrht thousands of acres, but were
