Snowing bard with intense cold in
Yorkshire, Eng., Friday.
Dns Moines has had more trouble to
dispose of Kelly's army than any other
city on their route, so far.
Physicians in session at Lincoln last
week passed a resolution calling for the
removal of Dr. Allen from tho secre
taryship of the stato board of health.
Kelly's contingent are talking'about

The republican party is the one dis
tinctive political organization of this
country that has contended for the full
rights of t lie men who earn their bread
by tho sweat of their brow, irrespective
of nationality or previous condition.

speech to his constituents asking re
election. As a southern man said: "Col.
Hreckenridge is not on trial. His trial
is over. It is the people of Kentucky
who are on trial now." The noted de
fendant in one of the nastiest scandals
on record, was very frank, and seemingly
penitent in all lie had to say about his
The election in Indiana last week is
an eye-opener. The gains are mostly in
manufacturing districts, and they are

Civilization constantly widens its own
horizon. The golden rule is a potent
instrument of its expansion Man's
knowledge measures his vorld. Broth

Mr. t;iiilsloii-" Addrex to UN Constituent.
England's Grand Old Man has given
an eloquent exhortation upon the needs
of the times. Mr. Gladstone's letter to
his Midlothian supporters is one of the
notable utterances of recent times. He
sums up the history of the last sixty
years as the greatest legislative and ad
ministrative period of British annalp,
whose prominent note is that of eman
cipation, political, social, moral, intel
lectual. Ho contemplates the future
with some forebodings. There is open
ing, he thinks, a period or possibly
greater moral dangers, which will bring
a great ordeal to those classes now be
coming largely conscious of jwwer, who
have never heretofore been subject to
its deteriorating influences. As a last
word, he warns the new depositaries of
power against the mistake of their pre
decessors: Now is the time for the true friend of
the country to remind the masses that
they owe their present political eleva
tion to no principles less broad and
noble than these--the love of liberty,
and of liberty for all without distinction
of class, creed, or country, and tho reso
lute preference of the interests of the
whole to any interest, be it what it may,
of a narrower scope.--(From ''The Pro
gress of the World," in the May number

DISASTROUS TO SEALING FLEET
two Vtt-el;. Lost With All Hands and
other Is a Total Wreck.
San Francisco. May 8. The present
season has been most disastrous to the
sealing fleet. So far the schooners
Matthew Turner and Mascot of San
Francisco have been reported lost with
all hands. The Henry Bennis is said to
bare gone ashore and became a total
wreck. The Undaunted is a wreck and
the Retriever lost Ave of her boats and
had to put into Yokohama. The men of
the latter, with the exception of Captain
Snow and two sailors, managed to reach
Aakodate. Fears are entertained for
the safety of the latter three.
The schooner Ocean Belle lost one of
her boats in a fog and the three men in
her were adrift for five days, with but
little water and no food. They reached
Yokohama after a great hardship and
left on the schooner Penelope before the
Ocean Belle arrived. The captain of the
latter schooner reports that he spoke the

Great Britain to Be Kept Paramount.
London. May 8. Baron Hood of Ava
lon, a rear admiral and formerly a lord
of the admiralty, called the attention of
the lords to the great increase in foreign
navies and asked whether the proposed
increase in the British navy, provided for
in the British estimates, was sufficient to
insure to Great Britain the command of
the seas. Baron Hood especially urged
an increase of 6,500 men in the personnel
of the navy. The first lord of the ad
miralty. Earl Spencer, said the govern
ment was determined to maintain the
navy and render Great Britain para
mount upon the sea.
American Farmers Going- to Africa.
London, May 8. A dispatch from
Capetown says: A pioneer party sent out
by the American Board of Foreign Mis
sions is about to start for Mashonaland
to examine the country's resources and
fitness for farming purposes. If they
make a favorable report, a host of Amer
ican farmers will follow them to Mash
onaland. Many Americans have al
ready settled in the Transvaal and in the
cOuutry4uorth of that republic.
Important State Trial.
Vienna, May 8. An important state

Lodge Offer a Retaliatory Atnendineut.
Jerry Simpson Not So Well.
Washington, May 8. During the ex
ecutive session Monday, Senator Jones
presented the amendments to the tariff
bill which have been considered and
agreed to by the Democratic senators
known as the compromise committee.
There are over 400 of them, and it makes
a new bill, or a measure greatly differing
from the Wilson bill and from the senate
bill ' in any form in which it has been
presented. The ibills heretofore pre
sented by Senator Vest, and reported
from the finance committee, are indorsed
by the compromise committee. There is
a general increase in the bill, and in
some schedules the increase is very
marked. Senator Harris announced that
notwithstanding the consideration of the
Chinese treaty had not been finished, he
wonld oppose more executive sessions or
the passage of any bills during the morn
ing hours until after the tariff bill was
disposed of. He said he would now
press for sessions beginning at 10 o'clock
in the morning, in order that more speed
might be made;
REPUBLICAN CONFERENCE HELD.
Consider What Attitude to Take In the
Senate on the Tariff Question.
Washington, Ma 8. The Republican
steering committee of the senate held a
conference Monday for the purpose of
considering the attitude of the Repub
lican party in the senate on the tariff
question, in view of the claims made by
the Democrats that they have assurances
of the 4 votes necessary to pass the bill.
While the members of the committee do
not freely discuss the action of the com
mittee, it is announced they decided to
announce to Democratic leaders they
had no intention of filibustering against
the tariff, and especially would not ba in
clined to resort to the dilatory tactics if
the Democratic party should prove to be
substantially united on the tariff bill.
The interchange of viewy developed
the fact, however, that the Republicans
think there is much material in the new
compromise bill for legitimate discussion
and the' will insist upon the right to dis
cuss the bill a amended upon its merits.
The suggestion was made during the con
ference that a Republican caucus should
be held, and some of the members of the
sommittee stated later in the day they
considered a caucus within the next two
Dr three days probable. The committee
was assured of a solid Republican vote
against the compromise bill.

I must get out doors more.

to appoint one or more subcommittees to
relieve me of routine work. I am not
trying to dodge any duty or responsibility
and shall continue to work with all my

want rest from the laborious work be

Chicago Scalpers Disregard Law.
Chicago, May 8. The Chicago scalpers
are not as yet paying any attention what
ever to the law against scalping. All of
them were keeping wide open and doing
business as usual. The railroads are
not decided as to whether they will make
a fight on the scalpers or not. The law
leaves not a single loophole for the
scalper if he is caught doing business
and it now remains to be seen whether
the roads wish the scalpers to continue

COXEY CHARGED WITH ABDUCTION.
Miss Mamie Covey In Washington Without
Her MuIIilt's Consent.
Massilion. O., May 8. The prospects
of arrest on the chargo of abduction
awaits Messrs. Coxey and Browne when
Judge Miller of Washington is done with
them. This trouble is in consequence of
the appearance of the "Angel of Pace"
in Coxey's May day parade. The angel
was Miss Mamie CoscV, who is still in
Washington, and who got there without
her mother's knowledge or consent. The
mother, Mrs. Carolina Coxey. the di
vorced wife of the "general," secured
her decree on the ground of excessive
cruelty and was made legal custodian of
the girl. Young Jesse Coxey was sent
from Rockville, Md., and succeeded in
getting his sister to run away with him.
After their departure, a letter was found
in Mamie's room written by Carl Browne,
in which that gentleman says: "There
can be no harm in your visiting Wash
ington and being with your brother."
Mrs. Coxey announces her intention of
having Browne and Coxey arrested the
moment they put foot in Ohio, and she
may carry the war into the District of
Called Coxey a Knave.
Washington, May 8. In the trial of
the commonweal leaders, Coxey "s ex
planation of his plans for redeeming the
government was the principal feature of
Monday's proceedings, apart from the
speeches by the lawyers. It is apparent
the case is being treated on the broad
grounds of justification tor Coxey's
movement, for the assistant district at
torney in his opening address called
Browne a crank and did not hesitate to
insinuate that Coxey was a knave, while
the opposing lawyers endeavored to make
the trial appear a persecution by the
plutocrats of the people and appealed to
animositv against Wall street.
Coxcyiles Spiking IialM.
Spkagce, Wash., May H. The Coxey
ites have been for days interfering with
the Northern Pacific road by spiking
the rails on the heavy up grades and
swarming on the oars in the yards. One
of their number concealed himself on
the tracks of a cattle train, and when it
reached here set the air brakes, thus pre
venting the train from being rushed
through. The Coxeyites boarded three
cars, and the officials have ordered the
stock unloaded, aud declare they will
not carry the industrials. The country
ia thronged with Coxeyites, and recruits
Another Piiate of the Coxey Movement.
Fergus Falls, Minn., May 8. A
Coxey organizer, who was here with a
wing of the army, in an interview said
$5,000 was subscribed in Butte to help
take the army which he is organizing in
the west to the east. He says other
cities on the coast have raised large sums
to send unemployed workmen east. They
care nothing about the effect of the
movement. The west, it is asserted,
has been getting the dead beats and un
desirable citizens of the east and is now
shipping them back by the trainload.
Precaution Taken by the Itnck Island.
Topeka, Maj- 8. Information was re
ceived at the office of the Rock Island
Railway company that a part- of 300
.Coxey recruits from Cripple Creek, Colo.,
had arrived at Pueblo, and that the men
were endeavoring to secure assistance in
the way of transportation to the east.
Fearing an attempt might ba made to
take possession of their ears the company
ordered all surplus rolling stock out of
the city and trains in and out of Pueblo
are to be run with extreme care while
the menace continues.
Mm. Leas as a Candidate fur Congress.
Topeka. May 8. There was talk here
of putting Mrs. Lease in uomioaiion for
congressman-at-large, but the Populist
leaders do not want to turn down Con
gressman Harris. They are willing,
however, to give her the nomination in
the Seventh district, should Jerry Simp
son not make the race again.
POOL AGREEMENTS NOT LEGAL.
Courts Will Xot Aid to Enforce Contract
Contrary to Law.
St. Paul, May 8. The United States
circuit court of appeals has affirmed the
decision of the United States court foi
the eastern district of Missouri in the
case of the Chicago, Milwaukee & St.
Paul railway vs. Wabash, St. Louis and
Pacific. These railways with five
others signed a pooling agreement in
1893, the division to be in the trafiic
itself. In the course of business the Wa
bash carried moro than its share and the
Milwaukee carried less. It was decided
by the pool commission that the Wa
bash should pay the Milwaukee 108,404,
and suit was instituted for that amount.
The courts hold that the plaintiffs action
was based on an illegal contract: that
with the contract ignored there is uc
cause for action and accepting the con
tract, it states an illegal and void cause
for action and the courts will not lend
their aid to enforce any contract con
trary to law or public policy.
