being tho insertion of the item of $1,
000,000 for payment of tho Cherokee

of which has never been made known

Wasiiinoton, April KM. Tho Demo

opened here, has received most en
couraging advices from "Democratic
leaders of sound judgment, and,
basing thoir estimates on thoso re
ports, the managers of tho burenn
claim that tho sound money men will
have nt least twenty delegates from

given out by the sound money men Is
that four of tho Missouri district dele

While Senator Gorman still pro

Senator lirlce, been prevailed upon
Not only Is tho administration

nppcafs that Secretary Carlisle's trip

TWO PENSION BILLS.
Which Cleveland Sat Down Upon With
Wasiiinoton, April 23. Tho Presi
dent to-day sent to tho Senate vetoes
of two Senate pension bills. The first
was that of Charles E. Jones, a pho
tographer, which attracted considera
ble attention in tho House. It is as
"To the Senate: I return herewith
without my approval Senate bill No.
i40, entitled, An act to grant a pen
sion to Charles E. Jones. Tho bene
ficiary named in this bill was a pho
tographer who accompanied ono of
tho regiments of tho union army dur
ing tho war of the rebellion. Ho was
injured, apparently not very seri
ously, while taking photographs and
where no battle was in actual pro
gress. He was not enlisted and was
in no manner in tho military servico
of tho United Sfntcs. Aside from tho
question as to whothcr his present sad
condition is attributable to tho injury
sustuincd.it seems to me the extension
of pension relief to such Oases would
open cho door to legislation hard to
justify and impossible to refrain from
abuse. Grovor Cleveland."
The other voto was in that of the
bill for a pension to Nanoy U. Alla
bach, widow of Peter II. Allabach,
who sorved in tho Mexican war and
tho war of the rebellion. Tho Presi
dent calls attention to the fact that
Allabach made no application for pen
sion on account of disabilities during
his lifo and continues: "It is not now
claimed that ho was in tho least dis
abled as an lncidont of his military
service, nor is it alleged that his
death, which occurred nearly twenty
nine years after his discharge from tho
army, was in any degrco related to
such service." ' Ho says tlio widow
was pensioned after "hor husband's
death as tho widow of a Mexican
s Id cr, and that her caso falls under
tlo general net of IdOO. "It is pro
rosed, however." he continuos. "by
the special act under consideration, to
give this widow a pension of$J0 a
month, without the least suggestion
of tlio death or disability of hor hus
band having been caused by his mili
tary servico, and solely, so far ns
discoverable, upon tho ground that
sho is poor and needs tho money. Hor
condition is precisely covereil by ex
isting laws and, if a precedent is to be
established by tho legislation pro
posed, I do not see how tho savie
relief as is contained in this bill can
be denied to the many thousands of
widows who aro in a similar situation
and aro not on the pension rolls under
Illll to Tax Inipuro liter.

For tho sako of argument wo admit
it Is dull. Thon, why not havo an or

It is only fair, nftor so long n period
of swnn-wnistcd creatures, with belts
pulled half wny down over tho natural
line of tho hips, that "things should

round-walBtcd yes, short-whlsted

add einphasli) to tho shortness of tho
waist nnd glvo a dash and chic to tha
figure. And now that tho sleeves nro
less enormous, another item In her
favor, sho looks anything hut "dumpy."
Tho waist must always bo trimly
built nnd encircled with a well fitting
belt, ono that will tend to lessen the
appcaranco of tho natural size, Instead
of, as no many unfortunate belts do,
mako It look much larger than It real
ly Is. It is neither eafo nor good taste
to wear too light-colored a belt upon a
dark gown. A black belt is nlways the
more kind friend, so far as
compass goes. Light ones, however,
ore comparatively safe when worn with
a light-colored gown. Then the con
