4. The nulherity conferred upon congress by
the constitution to regulate inler-sl.ue c i.o
mclce. and the authority reserved to the sever

8. The demonetization of silver worked a
fraud upon tne people by crippling the nation 'e
resources for paying lie indebtedness, the
act restoring its legal tender cuaracter, aud

spiracy, illustrate the spirit of i's so-called dc
mocrav. ;being subversive of tne constitution,
dettnfcttve of law and order, and in contempt
of public honor ami decency. We arraign this
party as a constant disturber of public tranquil

persistent uss-iults upon the authority and sta

One day, writes "Eli Perkins," I met
George Francis Train in Madison
Square, surrounded by children. Dr.
Hammond had told me that ridicule
was an infallible test for insanity that
if a man got mad at a harmless joke, a
joke with no animus in it, it was a pre -ty
sure sign of insanity.
"Do you see these hands?" com
menced t ieorze as he always does. "See
the blood run into them. There's
health for you! All this comes from
vegetable diet, sir. Xo meat forme.
I eat nothing but vegetables. Vegeta
bles make muscle, sinew, strength, man
hood." "Yes, George," I said, yon "re right.
Meat is weakening. I always notice all
the strong animals live on vegetables.
There's the weak lion and the tender
panther, they live on vegetables: and
there's the sturdy sheep, the hardy
goo e, the savage calf, the wild and rav
enous jackass, they live on meatentiie
"It always makes me mad to talk to
an infernal fool," s;iid Train, coloring

in a huff."

Women in Council.
Mrs Matilda Joslyu Gage, in hei
speech before the Senate committee in
regard to tho "Sixteenth Amendment"
reminded the Senators of the following
"precedents:" "There has been a great
deal said on the subject of precedents.
Many women in th s country vie upon
school questions, and in England at all
municipal elections. 1 wish to call your
attention also to the time when the
Saxons Crst established free govern
ment in England. Tho desire for lib
erty flows iu a stream through the
hearts of women from that day. Women
as well as men took part in the WiUen
argeinote, the great national council of
our Saxon ancestors in England. When
Whightred, King of Kent, in the sev
enth century, assembled the national
legislature to enact a new code of laws,
thet'ueen, abbesses, and many ladies
of quality signed the decrees. Also at
Heacoustield ttie abbesses took part in
the council. In the reign of Henry III.
lour women took seats in Parliament,
and in the reign of Edward I. ten ladies
wer- called to Pat" mentand helped
o govern Great Britain. Also in 12- 2.
Henry left his Queen, Elinor, as keeper
of the ere:. t seal, or Lord Chancellor,
while he went abroad. She sat in the
Aula llegia, the highest court of the
kingdom, holding the highest judicial
oower of (.reat lir.tain. Queen Elinor
was mother of Edward I, one ol
England's greatest kings.

The Culiforiiiit I la::.
The history of the Rear Flag was re
counted by John S. llittell, at the San
Francisco Pioneer Society. Captain J.
C. Fremont, at the head uf an explor
ing expedition sent out by the govern
ment of the United States, having en
tered California without leave of the
Mexican government, wan encamped at
Mount (iablian in February, lski,
when a dispute arose between him and
a native Californian about a horse
which the latter claimed as .stolen.
Fremont refused to surrender the
horse, and defied the Mexican authori
ties, who had no troops that could safe
ly attack the American riflemen. Tiiis
defiance irritated tho Mexicans, and
threats were made against the Ameri
can seillcrs. Frenioat was invited by
these settlers to declare war against
Mexico, but declined to take so bold a
step. The settlers organized them
selves and decided to anticipate anal
tack from tho enemy. They captured
Sonoma by a night attack, and thus
started a revolution. " We must have
a flag!'' cried the riflemen. The wife
of a settler supplied the muslin, and a
house painter outlined v huge star.
"Put in a grizzlyf' suggested a rifle
man, and his comrades shout d.
"Ves!" "Tes:" So the bear was paint
ed, standing nearly upright (hisposi
tion when about to close with a fortnid
able foe), facing the star, and beneath
him were th words, "Ca ifornia lie
public." Tho paint was obtained from
a wheelright's shop, und the execution
did not -xcel in artistic merit. The
party had entered Sonoma early on tli
morning of Friday, June 12th, and the
Hag was hoisted the same evening.

"I should think not, mamma."
Do you think it would make it any

know that warmly dressed little girls,

and laughing at her poor clothes? For
your own part, would you not think

would think it a ry wu-ked thing il
