Putting the Cold Bugs Down.
O, labor-eons and daughters trje,
firhir honest hands and brawn.
For we have let so much to do
To put these gold bugs down.
Help dash these gold bugs down I
0, pull these gold bugs down! ,
From every hamlet. Held and farm
We'd stamp these gold bugs down.
We claim the proceeds of our toll.
Just that and nothing more,
We wage no war for place or spoil.
But Justloe for tbe poor.
Then get these gold bugs down I
O, tear the gold bugs down 1
.' Tbe starving millions cry aloud,
"0, keep these gold bugs down 1"
In poverty our midnight tears
Row bitter have we shed.
Our mortgaged farms these weary years
Our anxious hearts have bled.
Then tak e these gold bugs down I
O, throw the gold bugs down!
Have we no rights you should respect,
0, gold bum coming down?

Investigating Immigration
Washington. Aug. 4. The officers of
the Assistant attorney general for the
postoffice department have at last adopt
ed p'"", approved by the postmaster
general, wh ich, it is thought, will break
up a very novel and extensive fraudu
lent enterprise, that of The Home Fas
cinator company, of Montreal, Canada,
which by the aid of the mails has been
working very successfully upon many
credulous people in the United States.
This concern, it is stated, publishes a
monthly journal called The Home Fas
cinator, alleged to be devoted to useful
knowledge, romance, etc. The ''etc."
seemed to cover the greater part of the
paper and consisted of an adver
tisement of fonr prizes, to be
awarded to persons sending in the
largest correct list of English words of
not less than four letters,- constructed
from the letters contained in the words
"the world's fair," each competitor to
send with his list the sum of $1, the
subscription price of the paper. An
enormous circulation has been acquired
throughout the United States upon tbe
basis of this offer. Prizes were adver
tised to be awarded on June 29, 1831,
the first prize consisting of $1,000 in
gold, the second prize a grand piano
valued at $400, and the fourth a sewing
machine estimated at $05. As to tho
third prize consisting of a "silver tea
set, gold lined and valued at $120." the
clever and unique plan was adopted of
awarding it to thousands of persons.
Circulars asking for remittances of
$4.90 to pay for packing and shipping
tbe prize, it is stated, have been freely
distributed throughouot Kentucky
Missouri, Iowa and Pennsylvania, so
far as advices have been received In
one small town in Missouri six persons
were notified that each one had been
awarded the silver tea set, and six
money orders amounting to $4.90 each
were promptly forwarded to The Home
Fascinator company at Montreal.
The department seemed powerless to
avert the consummation ot a great
wrong until it was suggested that all
American terminal postomces designat
ed as exchange po3tomces with Canada,
should be treated as offices of destina
tion, and the postmasters there in
structed br wire to refuse to certify to"
money orders or forward registered let
ters payable and directed to The Home
Fascinator company, but to return the
same to the offices of origin marked
"fraudulent." It is expected that many
thousands o! letters containing money
will be restored to the senders.
Investigating- Immigration.
Washington, Aug. 4. Dispatches
from the United States immigration
commission now in Europe to the treas
ury department state that the chairman.
Colonel Weber, and Dr. Kempster have
gone to Germany, where they are now
prosecuting their inquiries. Commis
sioners Cross, Powderly and Schultz
will carry on their inquiries in Great
Britain and the southern portion of the
contineut. The dispatches indicate
that a large amount of valuable infor
mation is being collected, no obstacles
being interposed officially or otherwise
to the investigations which are being
In an interview between therommis-
sioner-i and the Mormon elder in charge
of Mormon emigration at Liverpool that
official, who is acting in the place of
Brighatn Young. Jr., stated that he and
all Mormons believed polygamy to be
right, yet as the United States supreme
court had decided the anti-polygamy
law to be constitutional the Mormon
church had adopted a rule against its
practice in the United States and that
all Mormon converts abroad are so in
formed before their embarkation for
America. He further stated that when
ever the' question was asked converts
were assured of the rightfulness of po
lygamy, but of the legal impossibility of
its being practiced at present in the
United States or Great Britain and
that they must not go to America if
they do not intend to obey the law and
abstain from polygamous marriages.
Mobile's Plea for Subsidy.
Washington, Aug. 4. -Postmaster
General Wanamaker is awaiting further
information before deciding the appeal
of Mobile to be included in the subsidy
provisions. The appeal of the Alabama
senators and representatives was not
witnout weight, but the postofhee de
partment put more confidence in the
representations ot the financial stability
made by business men of prominence.
The capital of tbe company which pro
poses to build a line ot steamers from
Mobile is $10,000,000. and of this it u
claimed that $1,000,000 is paid in. The
Chicago and other capitalists who are
back ef the enterprise asked the post
master general to delay his decision un
til they should present some memoranda
showing the scope of tbe project and
the influences which were promising it
success. If be decides to include Mo
bile in the ports getting tbe benefits of
the act of congress, a supplementary ad
vertisement may te published by the
poatofflce department which will cover
the case.

at the Lower Ageay.
Cham3Eiu.aix, S. D., Aug. 4. The
Sioux commission left Lower Brule
Agency for Fort Keogh, going by way
of St PauL At Lower Brule the only
thing accomplished was in securing the
views of tho Indians themselves regard
ing the point to which they wish their
agency to be moved. The majority of
them, it was shown, were in favor of
going below White River to the Rose
bud Reservation, but as the Rosebud
Indians positively refuse to sell auy part
of their reservation at this time the
Brnlea will have to remain where they
now are. Tnis is very discouraging to
the Indiana, as many of them wish to
take their lands in severalty, but as
matters now stand they will refuse to
do so until they know certainly where
their permanent home is to be. This
is a question that cannot possibly be set
tled before at least one year, as the
money appropriated for the use of tbe
commission is nearly gone, and they yet
have some difficult questions to settle

A Startling Discovery Near Arkansas
Cltr-Iovestlgatlng the Kilting-. .
Arkansas City, Kan., Aug. 4. J. H.
Donnelly and wife were found dead in
their home three miles west of this cit.
About 7 o'clock a. m. their son, Henry,
went to a neighbor's three or four miles
distant on an errand for bis father. When
he returned be opened the door leading
into the kitchen and found his mother
dead in a Dool of blood. In an adinin-
ing room be found his father's lifeless
body with a revolver by his side.
An investigation is now being made
by Acting Coroner Scott. Mrs. Don
nelly was shot twice in the breast and
beaten over the bead with some blunt
instrument. Mr. Donnelly was shot
through the heart. It is said by those
who have been intimate with the fam
ily that they have not lived happily for
years ana the impression is quite pre'
valent that Donnelly murdered his wife
and then committed suicide. They were
universally respected here.

All day yesterday squads, companies,
divisions and regiments of men were
marching from the depots to the hotels
assigned to them. A hotel room is not
now obtainable at any price and the
owners of houses in the near proximity

tnases Alliance Opposition to tho Sob
t reaeory Scheme.
Tofeka, Ang. 4. The agitation
within the Alliance ranks over the sub
treasury scheme has brought forward
opposition from unexpected sources.
Colonel W. A. HarrLj ot Leavenworth
connty, candidate before the People's
party caucus for United States senator
has written m long communication op
posing the scheme, and C. W. Shuil,
candidate for lieutenant governor on
the People's ticket last fall, has also
come out against it. It is known that
President Frank McGrath of the Alli
ance does not regard it with favor, and
the prospect for a big fight is imminent.
The sub-Alliances throughout tbe state
take action upon it this month, and
their decision will settle the question ss
to whether there will be a sub-treasury
plank in tbe People's party platform in
this state. If Kansas repudiates it U.

Louisville, Aug. 4. This was the
last election by viva voce rote that will
7T be held in Kentucky. The new'tution, despite the powerful op
pos tion of railroads, banks and corpor
ations generally, was carried by an
overwhelming majority, and the last
state couniii.ui.iuu U recognize slavery is
a tning or me past, i ne new constitu
tion will tax railways, banks and stock
companies, abolish the office of public
printer, provide for a secret ballot sys
tem and municipal government reforms
and also carries an anti-lottery clause
which will wipe out the half dozen lot
tery charters now being operated with
semi-daily drawings at Covington and
Louisville in tbe interest of "policy4
games throughout the United
btates. Reports from the cities
and towns ' throughout the state
indicate that the Democratic ticket has
about the usual majority probably
20,000. Indications are that the Alli
ance or People's party vote is very
small. Despite the fact that every ef
fort was made for two months preced
ing the election to organize the Alliance
men in this state all tbe leaders of that
movement ot national reputation, in
cluding Senator Peffer and Jerry Simp
son of Kansas, Taubeneck of Illinois
and Davis of Texas, having stumped
the state thoroughly. The greater part
of tbe Alliance vote sesuti to have been
drawn from the Republican party. The
vote for and against the new constitution
was without partisan significance.
Later returns indicate that the vote lor
tbe new constitution is fully five times
as great as against it.
lie Declares the Wool Schedule Dai Been
Pittsbcro, Aug. 4. Major William
McKinley, Republican caudidate for
governor of Ohio, accompanied by his
wife and a party of friends from East
Liverpool, were in Pittsburg. In an
interview Major McKinley said that
when he left General GofTs at Clarks
burg a few weeks ago a squib (cot into
the papers saying that lie had been
called away by the dangerous illness of
Mrs. McKinley, and consequently his
mail was deluged with inquiring letters
from friends, but he was gladto say
there was nothing in it.
"What about your wool schedule." "
"The prevailing prices' of wool are
lower because tbe price of wool is. down
all over tbe world. The wool schedule
has not had a fair show, because before
tbe bill went into effect the market was
glutted with foreign goods."
"Will the People's party injure you?"
"No, I think not. They will draw as
heavily from one party as from another.
We are in the fight to win."

Pottstown, Pa., Aug. 4. Mrs. Mary
Hastenstein, the aged widow of a vet

soldier for the Union, has become in

drawing two different pensions from
the government at the same time. For
over half a century she has been receiv
ing a liberal stipend as tbe widow of
John Hastenstein, who served in the
war of 1813, and in addition, since 1879,
she has steadily drawn a second pension

Rome, Aug. 4. The recent interview
between President Harrison and Car
dinal Gibbons created interest here as
an indication of the importance In
America of the Cabeusley question. The
pope, Cardinal Simeonl and the chiefs
of the propaganda have been much im
pressed with the declarations of the
president. Ths tributes of the Ameri
can press to the wisdom of tbe pope's
decisions are also greatly appreciated.
The holy see sincerely regrets that
the friends of Mr. Cahensly have spread
a report that Rome placed the obstacles
in the way of his schemes. From the
first the propaganda declared to Mr.
Cahensly that the holy see would never
accede to the demands of national bish
ops. Cardinal Simeonl and Mgr. Pen-
ico both assert that tbe Cahensly
scheme will never be accepted by the
propaganda. "Nvcr," the declare,
"Will it record snnh nrrniraHva to im
migrants. Mr. Cahensly committed a
grave imprudence. We can never enter
upon such a course."
The New Tuberculoid Cum.
Paris, Ang. 4. Doctors disagree o
to the value of Dr. Lauudcngue's now
tuberculosis cure.
"They know nothing about It," said
Professor Germain Ze. with a gesture ot
disgust. "It is nothing more than a big
advertisement. I knew men who were
looking upon tho tuberculosis congr,.-
solely in that light, and consequently
did not even subscribe. There can lie

of this. I was sure in November, l&D,
when I confided a sealed report of my la

when I allowed the report to be opened

budget will contain credits for prelim
inary work in fortifying Breslau,
