O, friend of mine, these lives of ours
Strewn jet along- with broken flowers,
May stlil awake to buoyant song-.
That in our suffering- we are strong
To tell of evils, growing-dumb
When justice builds mankind a home!
A roof- tree wrought of human hearts,
A monument of la ' true arts.
Where each appealing). t ..it of ours
Be woven In Its blooming bow'rs:
And rold withia tbe build'rs band
Bach dewy tear like grains of sand:
Since tears that fall for woes of men
May gleam in marb.e. later when,
Tbe deathless truths tiat men have taught.
Truths we have deemed had gone for naught,
Mosaics bright these walls upon
Ttat sweep the sbaddows further on.
To tx-ckon those who faint of thirst.
These who with' wrongs have been accursed.
While In some lone nook there may be
A face resembling you or me
Not that my own shall dwell enshrined
'Till nobler forms I have In mind
Be there transformed to life that springs
To Immortality, and sings,
"Grand saviors, with your clearer ken.
Touch with your tears these tolling men:
Cose titter! ye frtsn all the lands,
O, hasten, with yourcleaner hands.
And bul d in this vast brotherhood
Deeds oft Imperiled with their good,
On these white arches overhead
This golden sign-"here creeds are dead;
For women freedom, on each span,
And Liberty for child and man,"
These dark stones leave to bog and feu.
That greed gave out to starving mon,
Kejected since all wealth refused
Tbe bread that babes bad gladly used;
For net a space Id dome or niche
Be his who once was proud and rich,
And lent no earto human cry
Tbo' oft be heard It passing by. .
Tls thus, true friend, tbore yet may be
Tbe risen House, Humanity.

GENERAL POLITICAL NEWS.
Jadg Jans KleholsM Qnita the De
mocracy for the New Party Mills
and the Speakership Secretary
SchUIUif Vd Honey.
NewYouk, JulySSl. Mr. Clarkson
was shown the dispatch in tbe morning
papers purporting to quote Senator
Quay as stating that be had decided to
resign the chairmanship of the Repub
lican national central committee im
mediately after the election. Mr. Clark
ion (aid: "I am able to state that this
is true. Immediately after election Sen
ator Quay stated to his colleagues on
the executive committee that he desired
to resign as chairman; that he did not'
desire to do the detail work and have
tbe detail correspondence of a political
committee, and still more that he folt
that a United States senator ought not
to be the chairman of a national com
mittee or any political committee. His
colleagues in the committee resisted
this and persuaded him not to resign.
He renewed the wish four or five
months afterwards, and about
tbe time of the inauguration in
sisted upon it with a great deal
of determination The judgment
of the committee was opposed to it, and
tbey were unanimous in the desire that
tbe organization, which had gono
through a great struggle and which bad
performed a great work, maintaininz
absolutely harmonious relations and ttie
members becoming endeared to each
other thereby, should remain nnbroken
nntil changed by the new national com
mittee created by the next national con
vention of the party. I can say dis
tinctly that the seuator was very posi
tive in jus desire to retire and was only
changed from hit purpose by the advice
and appeal of his colleagues. His health
was frail at times and he desired to be
rid of the burden imposed by those de
tails of a committee which are much
larger in tbe intervals of a campaign
than is generally supposed. In the dull
est time the chairman of the national
committee receives an average of 100
letters a day which he has to answer.
When bis health failed in the senate
and be went to Florida on his fishing
tour he stated to me then his unalter
able determination to resign."
Mills and the Speakership.
Acsm, Tex., July 21. A good deal
of discussion is agitating the political
Mr.Mills will witndrawsomtherace fori
tbe speakersaip of tne next congress.
The people of Texas are verv proud,
and justly so, of R,oger Q. Mills, and it
is firmly belivred that should he with
draw from the speakership race and
turn his attention to the affairs of his
own state, the next election in Texas
will place him in the United States
senate. It is further declared by Mr.
Mills' friends in this city that if he will
devote his attention to his rivals in this
state, instead of the speakership, he is
almost certain, if Governor Hogg calls
a special session of the legislature, to be
elected by that body to fill the unex
pired term of Judge Reagan, which is
now being filled by the Hon. Horace
Chilton, by virtue of appointment by
Governor Hogg. Numerous protest have
been sent tbe governor, declaring
against his action in ignoring the
claims of the man who was. the first to
give Texas a voice in the Federal gov
ernment. Mr. Chilton claim s to be an
Alliance man, but it is a notable fact
that a majority of the Alliance are
clamoring against his appointment, and
it is certain tliat when the time arrives
for the selection of another Senator,
Mills will receive the support of a huge
Blice of the Alliance, together with the
entire anti-Ailiance Democratic vote of
the state. Mr. Chilton may till tho sen
atorial chair during this unexpired
term, but it is almost a certainty that
the voice of the people will never
select him to that office, not that Mr.
Chilton is unworthy or incompetent,
but simply because he ii not the choice
of the people. The only way he will
ever be uble to reach the senate by
election is taking the plain, rough, hard
beaten path through cougrees. But
will Mr. Mills .retire from the speak
ership race, or is he equal to the
emergency of both campaigns, are
questions that are beiag asked on all

IN SOUTH AFRICA.
Freaeh Trops Eaeeaater Natives Arase4
Pabib, July SI. The- government is
informed of serious encounters which re
cently took place in South Africa be
tween a party of Frenchaksn and a large
body of natives. Several Frenchmen
have been killed by the blacks; a French
expedition, fifty strong, started from
Labon, on the gold coast, to avenge
their death. After a week's march
through tropical forests, they encoun
tered an army of 1,200 warriors, armed
with European rifles, at the village of
Jousse. Tbe natives were led by three
fetich men. A fight ensued which
lasted four hours. All three of the
fetich men were killed and a large num
ber of black were killed and wounded,
when tbe natives retreated. The French
party lost two killed and two wounded.

CEOPS OF THE WOELD.
The Londoa Times Says European and
Aslatie Wheat Will Mot lie
ou the Market
London, July 21. The Times sum
marizes the harvest prospects of the
world as follows: In Russia there is a
grave deficit, peasantry starving, small
hope of relief. In India there is serious
anxiety, and famine prevails over a
considerable portion of the country.
Madras, Rajqunta and the Punjuab are
the worst sufferers. There is drought
in Bengal, and the need of more rain is
urgent. Bombay alone promises a good
harvest. - The - American harvest will
be good in quality and amount, but
with the failure of the Indian and Rus
sian supplies it is of the most impor
tance that the English crop is not to be
short. Tho prospect on the whole is
good. In the chief wheat counties,
Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk, the crop is
above the average, and in the other
counties up to the average. The har
vest will be late and the prices high,
consequently a good outlook for the
English farmer to break the long series
of disastrous years.

game between the Brooklyn and New
York National league teams, which
will probbbly result in the
death of "Hub" Collins the well
known second baseman of the
Brooklyns. ' He and Right Fielder
Tom Burns started for a short fly ball
bit to right field. While running at
full speed tbe men collided and both
were rendered unconseioua. Both"men
were frightfully cut about the face and
blood was spurting from Collins' mouth
and ears. Physicians were soon in at
tendance, who, after an examination,
said that the men were suffering front
concussion of the brain, and that Col
lins was likely to die. The men were
removed to their homes. Burns, who
was not so badly hurt as his companion,
recovered consciousness about an hour
after the accident. When he opened his
eyes he shivered like an aspen and bled
in the nose and mouth. Tbe doctors
think be will recover. Collins was still
unconscious at a lute hour. His condi
tion is very critical
Crete, Neb , July 'fl. The week has
been very favorable for harvesting, and
a fine crop of rye and wheat is now
practically secured in tbe southeastern
part of tbe state. Corn has grown weil
considering the cool weather. There
has been about tbe average amount of
sunshine during the week, with the
temperature from three to six degrees
below tbe normal. Rain has been very
light, but enough has fallen everywhere
to moisten the surface of the ground. It
was lightest in the upper Elkhorn val
ley, where there was only a trace, and
heaviest .in Kearney county, where it
amounted to nearly three inches. Sev
eral local bail storms hive done damnum,
tbe most destructive one extending
along tbe southern line of Kearney,
Adams. Clay and Filtnore counties.
Corn has grown well the last week but
is still backward. Some report it from
ten days to two weeks behind. It is just
tabling in tbe southeastern part of the
state. The hay crop in unusually largo
ana potatoes an exoouent crop.

Ordered to Investigate.
Washington, July 81. Acting Sec
retary ('handler has requested the com
missioner of the general land Office to
direct a special agent to make an inves
tigation of the land described in
tbe petition filed in the de
partment requesting that certain
lands in Colorado lie set aside for
the purpose of a National park, to be
known as the "Pike's Peak National
Park," and those described in a subse
quent petition filed by Oeorge H. Par
sons of Colorado Springs, for the reser
vation of certain lands adjacent to those
referred to in the tint petition. The
act repealing the timber culture laws
provides that the presidsnt may from
time to time set anart ri public reser
vations any part of &e twblic domain
wholly or in part cover etl with timber
undergrowth. The special agent will
give an opportunity to persons to sub

Washington, July 21. Acting Sec
retery Chandler, of the interior depart

Mr. Wood McKnight at Riverside, Cal,
calling attention to a report that the
Southern Pacific road is about to at
tempt to stop the overflow of the Colo
rado river, which has formed a new
lake in the Colorado desert, the prop
erty of tho company being placed in
jeopardy, and requesting that the de
partment intervene in behalf of tbe in
terests of tbo people of southern Cali
fornia, whom it is presumed the new
body of water will greatly benefit. Mr.
Chandler replied that the matters re
ferred to are not within the jurisdiction
of the department and that the remedy
of the people against any actual an
ticipated injury from the operations of
the railroad company in protecting its
property lies in the courts. .

Washington, July 21. The war de
partment has received no official infor
mation from the authorities of Tenneseo
conrning the reported labor troubles
in that state, nor has any request for
United States troops to suppress the
minets been made. Should such a re
quest be made it would be some time
before tbey could get troops to tbe

any importance is nearer than St. Louis.

MORE QUEER FINANCIERING.
A Philadelphia Man Doeen't Want to ray
Mote Clvon to Doeolvo.
Pbjladklphu. July 21. Another
story of queer financiering came out
The National Bank of the Republic, of
New York, recently entered suit here
against Ephrain Turland to recover the
amount due on a certain promissory
note, of which Tnrland was tbe maker.
In the affidavit of tbe defense Turland
ays he never received any value of any
kind from the note, it having been ob
tained from him by fraud and misrepre
sentation on the part of President Ken
nedy, of the Spring Garden bank. At
tbe time of the money stringency he
was one of the directors of the bank,
which has since failed, and
Kennedy represented to him
that, owing to the stringency
of the money market, the bank was a
borrower of cash temporarily from the
clearing bouse nntil their assets ma
tured, and in view of this fact, it would
be wise to strengthen tbe loans by a de
posit of special commercial paper, and
for this purpose Turland made the note
in question and several more on Ken
nedy s promise that tbe paper would bo
protected at maturity and returned.
Turland goes on to say that be. now
knows that the bank at the time was
fraudulently insolvent, that Kennedy
and two other directors bad borrowed
050,000 of capital stock of the bank
and, in conclusion, that the books of
tbe bank were falsified to deceive the
bank examiner, -

SEVERE ON THE SWITCHMEN.
Wilkinson Issues a Circular on the Late
Buffalo, July 21. S. E. Wilkinson,
grand master, and W, A. Sheehan, grand
secretary of the Brotherhood of Railway
Trainmen, have just issued a circular to
the members of the association giving
the inside history of the trouble be
tween it and the Switchmen's
Mutual Aid ssociation, which
culminated in the discharge of all the
switchmen on the Chicago and North
western road. Mr. Wilkinson proceeds
at considerable length to give the de
tails of the negotiations arising during
the controversy, and concludes with
this statement: "On the part of the
switchmen it is a record black with
persecution, defiance of the law and
envy of the success of the trainmen. .
Ou onr part there has been forbearance
and sacrifice, even to humiliation. I am
willing to be judged in this matter. I
have no apohgy to offer."

Kjioxvimt, Tenn., . July 21. Tbe
crisis in the trouble between tbe ousted
miners in this district and the convicts
who were brought from the state prison
at Nashville, has at lost been reached.
When about four hundred armed strik
ers attacked the guards who had charge
of fifty felons at BrlceviUelast Wednes
day night and liberated their charges,
il was confidently predicted that this
would be but the beginning of a gen
eral movement throughout tbe entire
mining district of tbe state. Gov
ernor Buchanan was immediately noti
fied and responded by ordering two
companies from Chattanooga and one
from Knoxville to the scene. Of the
fifty convicts taxen from the guards at
Briceville, two escaped and the others
were brought to this city. When the
militia arrived tbey took the convicts
along back with them and warned the
mob that tbey would protect them
at all hazards. The miners and a
crowd of sympathizers gathered around
the camp of tbe militia, catrtured the
triKipa and cubvicts. iuafCueu tiii-ui to
the depot and put them on a train and
shipped them to Knoxville.
The miners and their friends to the
number of 2.0U0 were divided into four
equal squads and completely surrounded
the camp. The miners sent up a flag
of truce and sent in a committee to tbe
officer in command. The committee
notified the officers that they had come
to take the convicts peaceably if possi
ble, by force if neeessnry. The officers
parleyed awhile and then agreed to sur
render. The troops were allowed to
keep their arms aud ammunition and
they.'with tbe convicts, were inarched
to tbe train. There they wero loaded
into box cars or whatever could be had
and the entire lot sent to this city. Tbey
arrived here about 4 o'clock. The min
ers made the troops promise not to re
turn to Coal Creek. An immeue
crowd met the troops at the depot.
A Battle Imminent.
Knoxville, Tenn., July KL The
troops are still waiting orders to pro
ceed to Bricflville. Four hundred sol
diers have just arrived from Memphis
and Nashville, which, together with
those already here, will proceed to tbe
scene of trouble. A conflict seems un
avoidable within the next six hours.
Intense anxiety is felt as to the out
come of tbe trouble. Large quantities
of ammunition and provisions have ar
rived at Knoxville for the troops. The
stockade in the valley is deserted, but
win be occupied oy troops today.
Coal Cbeek, Tenn., July 81. The
mountains in this vicinity are filled
with miners and mountaineers armed
with Winchesters. It is estimated that
8,000 are in the brush awaiting the turn
of affairs. Tennessee's entire militia
and some artillery from Georgia are
expected upon special trains.

rival race tracks, operated only a eoci
of miles apart one by George HanMns,t
the other by Ed Corrigan began bnei-i
nees. each with tbe avowed intentloa ot
bankrupting the other. The well known)
determined character of tbe two meat
and the fact that both have becking
with funds reaching considerably abova
the $1,000,0(13 mark added to the inter-i
est of tbe contest. Corrigan's track,'1
which is at Hawthorne and is tbs
farthest from town, struck the first
blow by advertising free admissriun.,
His place bad a preliminary meeting al
ready, but closed down during the Wash

tited at Garfield park, is brand new and
occupies Corrigan's former stand, tb
