"The Honest Dollar."
Heard ye the wail, the loud travail.
Tout comes o'er bill and mountain taller;
That echoes o'er the briny deep.
That labor rot of food and deep,
That lie: " The Honest Dollar."
Go ye where superstition old
Makes might the right and wealth the power!
Whore labor at the feet of Gold
In misery lives its saddened hour:
Whore wealth in riot steals tbo bread
That's sadly earned by struggling toiler;
With liberty and justice dead
There worship they ' Tho Honest Dollar."
When speculation, greed and gain
With tyrant's tools to wrong and plunder,
Sought to enthrall this broad domain
With lording curse, that home deepoller,

The Hessians fought "Tho Honest Dollar.'
See tho old parties, at their work,
BarniDg their golden orown an 4 collar,
Whipping in shreds the bloody shirt.
Hiding their steals of, J Honest Dollar."
Now, united, hear them sing

of a House Committee.
REPORT OF THE MINORITY.
Anti-Silver Committeemen Give Keaoa
for Opposing the Bland Hill Recipro
city Negotiation with Canada
Washington, Feb. 16. The Demo
crats of the ways and means committee
decided to report a bill placing upon the
free list "all binding twine manufactured
in whole or in part from tampico fiber,
jute, manilla, sizal grass or sunn." The
original bill upon this subject was intro
duced by Representative Bryan of Ne
braska and this gentleman was the
chairman of the sub-committee which
prepared the committee bill agreed
The silver men have secured upwards
of 120 Democratic signatures to their pe
tition asking that the rules committee
bring in a special order for the silver
bills. There are 238 Democrats in the
house so the silver men have secured a
majority. They say they have received
assurances from members of the
rules committee that they would
do what was shown to be the will of a
majority of the Democrats in the house,
but, it is not likely that the committee
will meet for some days, as the speaker
is sick and Mr. Catchings is absent from
the city. It Is probable that a special
order on the tariff will be brought in at
practically the same time as the order
relative to silver.
When the committee of ways and
means met the three bills agreed upon
by a majority of the committee placing
wool, binding twine, cotton bagging and
cotton ties on the free list
and reducing the duty on manu
factured woolen goods, were laid before
it for action by Chairman Springer. Mr.
Bnrrows, on behalf of the Republican
members, asked why they had not been
asked to attend the meetings of the sub
committees to discuss the bills, and
Springer replied that a majority thought
such a course unnecessary. He was
satisfied that the members were fully
aware of the provisions of the bills.
Burrows called for a yea and nay vote
upon the approval of the bills and they
were approved by a strict party vote.
Reciprocity Negotiations Terminated.
W ashington. Feb. lft. The commis
sion considering the question of commer
cial reciprocity between the United
States and Canada adjourned without,
as far as can be ascertained, accomplish
iner any practical result. The Canadian
commissioners were not empowered to
agree to any basis or reciprocal trade re
lations, and as the United States did not
wish to discuss matters with an "irre
sponsible" commission, Lord Salisbury
was asked on Saturday to confer upon
them the power they lacked. The sud
den termination of the negotiations is
construed into meaning that the British
government refused to empower the
commission with authority to conclude a
reciprocal commercial treaty and that
the negotiation of such a treaty, if con
tinued, will be conducted in London be
tween Minister Lincoln and Lord Salis
bury. General Foster, who with Secre
tary Blaine, conducted the negotiations
on the part of the United States, de
clined to say what conclusion, if any,
was reached by the commission.
Against Tree Silver.
Washington, Feb. 16. The report of

on coinage, weights and ' measures
against the passage of the i Bland free
coinage bill is signed by Messrs. Tracy
of New York, Taylor of Illinois. Stone of
Pennsylvania. Williams ,. of Massachu
setts and Johnson of North Dakota. The
minority in their report review tho sil
ver question, protest vigorously against
the Bland bill and recommend the pas
sage of a measure authorizing the presi
dent to invite an international monetary
conference. The report says the first
eight lines of the Bland bill develop its
true purpose. They provide for two
different dollars and a compulsion on the
citizen to receive either in payment of
debts duo him. ;
Springer's Free Wool Bill.
Washington, Feb. 16. The majority
of the committee on ways and means
agreed upon the full text of the bill pro

CURTIS' ON THE STAND.
Tho Accused Actor Makes a Good Wit
ness oa Hi Own Behalf.
San Francisco, Feb. 16. The trial of
Actor Curtis for murder was made note
worthy by an outline of the defense and
the testimony of the actor birmelf. John,
Wilson, district attorney, opeued for
Curtis. Curtis then took" the tdand and
told almost identically the 6tory out
lined by Wilson. He added at the con
clusion of his statement in a most em
phatic manner: "I did not kill Officer
Grant; did not fire my ph-tol that night;
in fact, my pistol was at home." Then
a pistol' was known him and he recog
nized it as his. He bought it to use iu
"Sam'l ot Posen." Curtis added that
he carried his money in a leather bag in
his hip pocket. This money he had not
disturbed that night, as some one else
paid for his drinks. Cross-examination
aid not shake Curtis' testimony in any
detail Attorney Kowalsky testi
fied to meeting Curtis on the
morning after the shooting. The first
thing Curtis did was to solemnly assure
Kowalsky that he had not shot Grant,
Kowalsky also told of the call which
MulHus and Twomey made on him.
They wanted to know what there was in
it for them. Kowalsky said: "I told
them I could do nothing and then one
said they saw the row and heard the
shooting. Then two men, one with a
light overcoat and one with a dark over
coat ran away." Despite objection this
evidence was admitted. After some
testimony as to Curtis' good character
court adjourned. It was a field day for
the actor, for if he can sustain his Btory
he cannot be convicted.
SCARED MRS. SNELL.
Dynamiters Demand 3,000 and Threaten
to Blow Her Up I'nleu It I
Chicago, Feb. 11. About four weeks
ago Mrs. Suell, widow of the millionaire
murdered by Tascott, received a letter
which ran as follows:
' MADAM: Unless you send us the sum of
13.000 we shall take steps to murder you.
We will blow you up with dynamite some
day when you are stepping into your car
riage to take your morning ride. Now,
treat us fairly and we will treat you the
same. If you accept this offer insert a
personal in the (naming a
daily paper) laying, "Send for your hat.
G. D." We will take this as evidence
that yon intend to deal with us in good
The letter was not signed and there
was not tne slightest clue to indicate the
identity of the man who sent the missive,
but it threw Mrs. Snell into a spasm of
fright. She at once placed the letter in
the hands of A. J. Stone, her son-in-law,
who promptly notified Inspector Marsh.
Two detectives were sent to the house
and remained quartered there for a
week, during which time nothing oc
curred that would throw any light on
the matter. Finally the "fly cops" were
called off. On the .evening of the day
the detectives left a messenger came to
the house with a missive in the same
handwriting as the previous one, con
taining the suggestion that the widow
had better send "the hat" (the (3,000)
by the bearer. This created a commo
tion and tho police were notified. The
boy was thoroughly pumped, but could
only say that the man who engaged him
was a shabbily dressed young man.
There is no clue.

is now under sentence to be shot for
alleged complicity in the Garza re
volutionary movement will be given a
hearing on appeal to the higher mili
tary court. The friends of Hernandez
are making a powerful effort to have
the sentence commuted and it is the
general opinion that President Diaz will
intercede in his behalf if the sentence is
affirmed by .the. court of last resort. If
the prisoner" does not receive clemency
he will be returned to the city to have
the sentence earned out.

by Police Regulation.
Chicago, Feb. 16. The match be
tween Andy Bowen. the colored light
weight of New Orleans, and Jimmy
Murphy of Chicago, at the Second reg
iment armory, was a tame affair. Police
Captain Fitzpatrick would not allow a
referee or seconds and made the men
box with gloves as big as sofa pillows.
He scared Bowen so that the yellow
fighter refused to make a lead in the
earlier roniuls. In the first round Mur
phy landed a straight punch on Bowen i
nose and bad the best of the round. In
the second, after a sharp exchange,
Bowen with a half swing caught Mur
phy on the side of the head and knocked
him down. Ia the third and fourth
rounds Bowen kept up his retreating
tactics and by forcing Murphy to lead
got the best of the exchanges. The fifth,
sixth and seventh rounds were qniet
with Murphy doing all the leading still
and having a slight advantage. After
the seventh round Bowen leaned over
the ropes and said: "I am getting all
tho worst of it. I can't fight easy." He
went into the fight hard in the eighth
and got in right and left, but Murphy
came back with both hands and just as
the men were going lively Fitzpatrick
8topied the fight.

The Situation Serious If the Trno; Are
Withdrawn tho Convict Will
Knoxvillf., Tenn., Feb. ' 16. Tho la
bor people at Coal Creek have been hold
ing numerous confeiunaes. One thing
considered was the proposition made by
tho Tennessee Mining company to con
dnct the mine at Briceville on the co
operative plan. The miners have not
fully decided yet what they will do,
There has been a good deal of con
fusion and shooting around the military
camp during tho week. One night wires
were cut aud hundreds of shots fired.
The people doing this sought to frighten
the militia and cause it to decamp. I n
this they were disappointed and the
troops turned the Uatnng gun loose on
them and nut them to fliifht. The min
ers deny that they bad anything to do
with this disorder, and they are prob
ably correct.. The miners declare, bow
ever, that if ' any miners are hurt by a
shot from the camp they will kill every
soldier there. So far no one can tell
what the outcome will be.
The state has the larger part of its
standing army encamped at Coal Creek
and the expense is heavy. If the troops
are withdrawn the convicts will be re
leased again. So matters stand the
miners defiant, and the state at heavy
expense. Unless some compromise is
made the outlook is that all operators
Will withdraw and turn their property

each. Lano wnereaoouts are sun un
known, though there is a lelicf
current that he is in Central America.
Several times during the year before
he left Lane said to acquaintances that
he had an idea that great wealth could
be amassed in mining in Central Ameri
ca and it might be possible that he would
make a trial of it somo time. Nobody
credits tho theory that hfi has been
foully dealt with, and his old neighbors
all believe that the defaulter will yet
turn up a rich man.

trying to take our commerce. The ab
sence of British competitors would
therefore be regarded more as a benefit
than otherwise, it would also be re
garded as an admission of defeat.

Mobbed by Fanatic.
Athens, Feb. 16. During the service
at the Protestant church at the Pirnms
(the port of Athens), a mob made an at
tack upon the bnilding. The mob forced
their way to the interior of the building
and severely maltreated the ministers
and the audience. They stole every
thing of value in the church and then
set fire to it. Before the flames could be
extinguished the interior of the church
was destroyed. Most of the members of
the mob remained in the vicinity watch
ing the building burn. The soldiers,
after they had subdued the fire, turned
their attention to tho authors of the van
dalism and they succeeded in arresting
many of them. It is believed that the
prisoners will be severely punished.

Amused at th Can Be porta,
Chicago, Feb. 16. "To the military
men along the Mexican frontier the war
like dispatches published In the north re
garding the Garza matter afford much
amusement," said Colonel J. P. Martin,
adjutant general of the department of
Texas, U. 8. A., at the Grand Pacific.
"No one down there pays any attention
to the Garza business,'' continued
Colonel Martin. "There was no
fighting between Garza's band and Cap
tain Hardie's company. Some shots
were exchanged, but it was through a)
mistake that the American soldiers ran
upon Garza's people in the dark, neither
party knowing the proximity of the
other. The Garza pickets challenged
our men, and not receiving a satisfactory
answer, and ignorant cf the identity of
the newcomers, fired and fled. Any
way, tue wnoie anair is anout over.
