Selection ot the Convention City.
In the selection of the convention city
there was a sharp fight between Chicago ,
St. Ijouis and Washington , the south and
southwest favored St. Louis and the east
and near by south , Washington. The
reason why Chicago prevailed was because
of the inducements which the World's fair
ana the cut rates atTord.
The idea of the silver people is to moot at
Chicago and adjourn to Washington. Hero
the convention will reassemble at about the
time when congress convenes nnd will prob
ably continue in session until after the or
ganization of that body.
General Warner made the following
statement this'evening : "A thorough poll
of the silver forces establishes the fact that
the Sncrnian law cannot bo repealed with
out a substitute which will bo satisfactory
to the silver rights. This canvass of
strength has been in progress since the day
after the issuance of the president's procla
mation. It has boon pushed actively by
moans of personal consultation , mail and telegraphic -
graphic communication. When the canvass1
was begun the first effect of the anti-silver
blow was still felt and there was a manifest
fear on the part of the silver men that the
Sherman law would bo repealed. Gradually
this fear gave way to hooo , and in turn thia
has boon supplanted by dolianec. "
This statement of General Warner reflects
the sentiments of the free silver men here
and there can bo no doubt 'that ' within the
past t.venty-four hours they have gained re
newed confidence In the belief'that the
Sherman act cannot be'repcalod withoul
giving the sjlvorltos something equally at
good or better7.
Tholr Jlnpo In the H nato.
This hope is in the senate and the reasons
for their faith they express as follows : It
thnt body nro men who represent tlic veo
life or death of the white metal : man wh (
are able nnd earnest , and they boldly announce
nounco that they will never give up the
Sherman law unless they can bo coticillatoc
with a measure that is moro friendly to sil
vcr. With the dotorminatlon of such mot
it must bo plain that to ropoa
the present law would bo a dilllcut
matter. Ono method might prevail the
adoption of the cloture in the upper chain
her. The gold uien have already thrown ou
this threat , but thosilvcrltcs meet it boldly
Over such a proposition there could hi
nothing loss than tlio most determined strug
glu. In this connection , the former fight t
when nn effort was made to introduce tin
cioturo In the senate nt the time the forci
bill was trying to bo forced through by th <
republicans , becomes of the greatest 1m
portnuco. The democrats were in a dollcati ir
jiositlon , and they finally enlisted the sorv
ices of BOITJO ot the free silver men in thol
behalf , on what was understood to have heei
an otTnuslvo dud defensive alliance
Through the aid of these men the fore
bill was defeated. Among these who aidoi
the southern democrats successfully wa
Senator Stownrt of Nevada. Now the Urn
has apparently arrived for the silver men t
call upon tholr' former allies to fulfill th
pledges , and it is expect tha
they will do BO. With such a combiuatio
tho.adoption of a cloture in the senate woul
scorn Impossible , nnd without the cloture i
would appear that any effort to repeal th
Sherman law without an accompanying sul l
stltuto measure would bo a hard task , ns th
plan of talking proposed legislation to deatl
bus boon successfully accomplished.
DlfTfreiit In the House ,
In the house the situation is different , am
It-would scorn tlmt the repeal can bo at
compllshod. The members of that bed !
come In moro direct contact with the poonl
who lire now loudly demanding that th !
law , or at least the elauso in it which n
quires the purchase of 4,500,000 ounces of si
vor each month , shall bo wiped from th
statute books. In the house , therefore , th
popular fooling Is moro likely to bo felt. BU
oven there , without a more stringent sot c
rules , the will of the majority cannot bohel
at chock by filibustering. This subject he
not yet been seriously considered , bi
though n direct cloture rule may not bo ca
rlcd there can bo little doubt that a inothc
will bo adopted by which the majority cii
speedily carry their desires into effect nn
shoulder thn responsibility which they ai
willing to accept.

Colorado Hprlnct.
Coi.oiuuo SruiNOS , July 4. The Colorai
Bummer School of Science , Philosophy m
Languages was formally opened this nfto
noon by nn address by Kov. Hlclmrd Mo
taguo of Colorado Springs , which was lut
followed by an oration delivered by Pros
dent K , IX Audrops of Brown university , '
member of the international monetary co
fercnco. His theme was ' The llomonetlz
tion of Silver. " The following is a synopa
of his ronmrks ;
Prof. And rows began by describing the rut
ous otTert of the demonetization of allver
1873 by the United Status and Germany , ai
dcseilbcd the demonetization policy us tl
hardest , saddest blow to human welfaroov
delivered by the action of the states , uulo
wo except those which have initiated hi
lory's worst war. "This malign policy , 1
said , caused the full of prices und the ru
turo of the world of commerce in two hem ;
phcres , between which trade cun go on on
with great difllculty , The fall of prlc
brought with It two subordlnato cffocl
each fearful in its way. Ono was iujustlc
dire , widespread ami inexorable , maul :
every man who was in debt overpay wh
ho uuid and , so , with every man who h
run hi debt from that day to this , The oth
effect was tlio paralysis of productive Indi
try and the tendency to turn banker a
money lender. U you engaged In iiidusti
your stock wont downwurd in value , when
on your hitndi ; if you had mouoy , its p
ducing power increased on your hands , Ir
spectlro of Interest , whlloyou slept. I do
not y that nil the stagnation of Industry
slnco 1873 , hai como from the fall ot prices ,
but I firmly bcllovo that this has hiul moro
to do with It than any other single causo.
Ono in : > tt of Detnanettzntlon ,
Tlio other main affect of the demonetiza
tion was the division of the world Into a
gold-using and ta silver-using hemisphere ,
with no par of cxctmngo between thorn.
Hero in America wo have thought less of
this than of the fall In prices , but , every
thing considered , It ! s qulto as great nn
evil. There Is no par of exchange between -
twoon Mexico and the United States ; be
tween Mexico and ( iroat Britain ; botwcon
the United HUtes und China and Japan , anymore
moro than there Is botwcon gold nnd iron or
botwonn wheat and zinc. A Chlncso wall is
built between the gold world nnd the silver
world , worse than any tariff over conceived.
This Is what has patslod England's trade
with India and nil the east and led nt last to
the recent attempt to place India upon n
gold basis. Not only is trade between two
parts of the world reduced to a gamble , but
International loaning and borrowing across
the chasm of oxohango is also painfully
Interfered with.
I propose to consider what in all probabil
ity would como to pass should the United
States begin free coinage nlouo. No doubt ,
after the first stringency accompanying the
announcement of n frco colnnijo policy , a
stringency arising from the fact that gold
would bo instantly withdrawn from circula
tion , while sliver would bo coined to take its
place , but slowly , our country would derive
great advantage from siding with the silver
states. The fall pf prices could bo stayed ,
perhaps sotno rlso of prices ensue.
U'hnt thn United Stitto < Could Uo.
ThcTUnltcd States would take its place ns
the ono great manufacturing nation of the
silver world and dorlvo from that position
the immense gains which Knelnnd has hith
erto reaped , but largely lost by the de
monetization of silver. Wo should manufac
ture for Mexico , South America , China and
Japan and England , and owing to lack of par
of oxchnngo with thorn , would now lese
most , or all of their custom. No doubt there
is n splendid chanco. Wo may effectively
"dish" England as a manufacturing und
commercial nation by the means suggested ,
I do not wonder that this prospect carries
away so many , for It Is , ludeed , a glorious
ono. But there dro shadows to iUaftcr all-
shadows so dark that wo should do far batter ,
In my belief , not to attempt free colnago
nlono , but wait a little longer in our present
unhappy and anomalous condition , until wo
can bring Great Britain to Join us in rcmono-
But how can wo Induce Great Britain to
act with ust
By ceasing to purchase silver nnd refusing
to coin moro until other nations will ; 'nt the
same time creating a law ordering the sec
retary of the treasury to open our mints to
tha free coinage of silver at nny data when
ho is valldly in formed Great Britain , Ger
many and the Latin union or any two of
these will do so.
What would bo the result of such n stand ?
Would Upset the I'lnns for India.
It would probably mnkoimpossible the
proposed Introduction of the gold standard
in India , leaving Indian exchange and the
finances of the Indian government in a worse
condition than over. The In Jia government ,
you know , proposes by stopping the free
colnago of silver to treat the rupee as the
equivalent of li'J gold centswhen its silver is
worth only about 23 cents. It Is doubtful if
it can do this now , so slender is its stock of
gold , nnd so immense Its supply of silver ,
but our act increasing the coinage nnd pur
chase of silver would depress the Intrinsic
value of tholr rupee still moro nnd at the
sumo time make it harder for them to got
gold.By dropping silver for the time being nnd
Joining the struggle for gold wo shall pre
cipitate in Europe another fall of prices so
aggravated that the most obdurate banker
of Lombard , street will have to admit that
gold cannotsafoly bo taken as the solo inter
national money.
To recapitulate , my preference for tutor-
national bimetallism to a national procedure
in the restoration of silvof I basoon these
considerations :
1. The international policy practically
unites the country , all but the few gold-
blind pcoplo whoso Influence need bo only
S. It qlono makes It possible to rciutroducc
the free coinage of silver without panic or

8. It alone settles the world's hard raonqy
0 t ' problem for at least a century or probably
' 4. It nlono makes the world's commerce
into ono unbroken unity , establishing a ilxod
par of exchange between all parts of the
glebe , and thereby furthering civilization as
much as steam navigation or the abolition ol f

P. 13. Seagravo of T6lc\lb successfully ex
hibited to n numbcrtof'howsDapcr men on
the railroad track at the Mauraco Rolling null
recently an apparatw jby which railroad
accidents may bo averted. , The exhibition
was made through the medium ot two hand
cars. A central , an clcclrlo battery and a
small wheel or metallic brush is about the
only extra thing necessary on every railroad
In the country. Thw 'dovlco , upon which
letters patent will scon Issue , looks especially
to the prevention of collisions botwcon
trains and accidents duo to the neg
lect or earolesstiMs of railroad
employes at the * stations , according
to Tun Bnn. By this arrangement an nlnrin
Is sounded In the cabs of the locomotives ,
when two trains nro approaching each other
on the same track , moving In the opposite
direction , or ono train following the other.
This nlnrni ndviscs the engineer of the
proximity of another train and enables him
to put the tram under control and avoid ac
cident. A slmplo contrivance in each cab
enables the engineer ot either train to signal
to aiid communicate with the engineer of the
other , though both limy bo moving rapidly
nnd not In night of each other , thus com
munications and orders may bo given in order
dor to avoid collisions. By the application
of the snmo principle the station agent can
communicate with n train approaching a
station ono or two miles illstuut , and can
communicnto equally as well with a train
that Is leaving n station and glvo orders
looking to the safety of the train. In addi
tion to this the dovlco provides that nn
alarm in the cab shall sound it a train is ap-
proaohlng on open switch or drawbridge. A
largo percentage of accidents to moving

If this dovlco will enable trains to bo oper
ated with greater safety , and prevent , to
any considerable extent , accidents attend
ing the collision of trains nnd open switches ,
It would seem to bo of very considerable im
portance. In addition to this , however , the
ability of an engineer of amoving train to
communicate with the engineer of another
moving tralu , and especially of the possi
bility of an operator at the station to com-
muulcato with nnd give orders to nn np-
preaching or retreating train , when ono or

render this Invention of great Importance.

their pedigrees , their lurking places ,

wo know something of the stories ol

great practical result of this dccado o
discovery lies not so much in the powoi
which wo have acquired , as in tlio powei
to prevent bacterial 'disease. JVo hav (
Icurncrl that in a largo number of bac

no brooding places outside the bodies o

TUB UEK.J The notion of the majority ot
the republican central commtttoo nt Us recent -
cent mooting In this city loaves nn shadow
of doubt that the nctlvo luflucnuo of thnt
powerful political factor will bo
exerted In favor of securing
delegates to the coming republican
state convention who will favor a modillca-
tlon of the prohibitory liquor law , on the
line of the Gatch bill. The commit too was
by nn moans unanimous In this conclusion ,
hut a working majority of the committee , In
cluding the chairmandecided on taking this
stop. It is understood that the majority is
nmdo up of the members from the First ,
Second , Third , Fourth , Seventh and Ninth
congressional districts , with two or three
others passive or neutral.
The most important action of the com
mittee which tends to prove that this policy
has boon agreed upon was the recommend ,
lug for the permanent chairman nf the con-
volition of Senator Lawrence of Sioux Uity ,
the well known antt-prohlbltlon leader. The
bare mention of the uamo of Senator Law
rence serves as a red rag to the radical pro
hibition contingent , but that ho will bo
chosen to preside over the deliberations o f
the convention , despite all opposition , there
Is scarcely n shadow of doubt. Ho Is nn
excellent parliamentarian and will rule the
convention with both fairness and llruiness.
1'rolmblo 1'lutform.
It has not yet boon fully decided by the
liberal clement in the party whether they
will Insist upon going into the campaign
with a platform committing the party to
the repeal of prohibition , or with a platform
modeled after the last republican national
platform , merely pledging the party to the
adoption of "tho most practical means for
the promotion of temperance and. morality. "
This , some claim , will loosen the party
bonds and leave the republican members of
the next legislature free to exorcico their
own Judgment in voting on this question ;
others , equally earnest , insist that such a
course would not only bo cowardly , but
would give the democrats the honor and
whatever political advantage might accrue
from the repeal of the odious statute. They
also fear that if the republicans take the llrst
named course the local option feature- the
Gatch bill will bo omitted and the state
thrown wide open for the return of the
They argue that the republican party hav
ing given prohibition a ten-years trial should

tions of the law us the experience of the
past dccado in its enforcement would sug

such counties of the state where the law has
been fairly well enforced. It is needless to
say it will bo nccess.xry for these two fac
tions to "got together" before the conven

At least three prominent candidates for
the republican and gubernatorial nomina
tion have been brought to the front , with a
legion more in the background. These are
Lafayette Youiig of this city , formerly of
Atlantic , ex-Auditor L > yens of Guthrlo and
Frank D , Jackson , ox-secrotary of state , ,
Mr. Young is the avowed cnujidato of the
prohibition contingent , and wbilo ho says ho
will enter into no scramble for the place ,
unless ho absolutely withdraws from the
ruco will likely receive the solid support of
this clement. Mr. Lyons bus been phenom
enally successful in politics. Ho is person
ally a prohibitionist and comes from a county
of the same complexion , but it his been
rumored that ho is wiliintr to pledge himself
to sign any bill on the subject that may pass
the legislature. If this bo true Lyons will
prove a formidable candidate , and his prov
erbial good luck in politics may win for him
the nomination over all opposition.
Secretary Jackson formerly lived in Butler -
lor county , but since his term of ofilco ex
pired has made Dos Moiues his homo. Both
ho and Mr. Young nro newcomers to the
city and Polk county may conclude to divide
its vote between these rival candi
dates. JncUson is pro-emiuently the candi
date of the liberal , or anti-prohibition ele
ment , and is immensely popular with the
young and aggressive loaders all over the
stato. That ho will develop no small follow
ing , if he is really in earnest for the nomina
tion , is admitted on all sides , und the real
contest now seems to be between him und
While a few county conventions have boon
held , it is not likely , in spite of the active
urging of the press , that a decisive majority
will come together till very late in the
month and possibly not toll the first week
in August.
Meanwhile other candidates may develop
with a show of surprising strength , and cer
tain contingencies may crowd these already
mentioned entirely off the track.
The democrats are lying still , part of them
cursing Cleveland for withholding the ofllces
and the remainder endeavoring to amuse
themselves by wutchlug the republicans ,
They will probably take no decided notion
until the policy of republicans is fully out

I'nrnlyzoft Nerves of thn Throat mill Sliooti
to the llrnln.
During the scorching weather of July
nnd August you often rush into nn ice
cream saloon with the avowed intention
of cooling your body to nt least a few
degrees below the molting point , says
the St. Louis Republic. If you nro in a
great hurry you nro apt to mnko tho'
llrst few tablcspoonfuls of the cooling
mixture rather large. This almost im
mediately gives you a violent pain in
the temples or somewhere in the region
of the eyes. Why is this ? Did you ever
stop to think ? Ono who has studied the
physiology of the case says it is caused
in the following manner : The frozen
mixture coming in contact with the
nerves of the throat ( the larynx ,
pharynx , etc. ) temporarily paralyzes
them. The bunsntion instantly shoots
to the center of those nerves , which is
in the brain , but finds there a side con
nection in the shape of the great facial
nerve , which starts from in front of the
ear and extends its branches over the
sides of the face.
Ono branch of this facial nerve , ex
tending across the temple , is a "nurvo
of sensation , " while the other brandies
are simply "nerves of motion , " utilized
chiplly 1o govern the play of the mouth.
Tliis great facial nerve sidetracks the
pain which proceeds from the chill ,
throwing it out along the nerve branch
which traverses the temple , the pain
being most atroni/.ing at the points whore
the nerve brunches. If the irritation is
extraordinary the "rellox" action whicl ;
takes place may cause a violent pain ir
the eyeballs as well as in the temple ,
the eye pain being simply sympathetic !
The porbon who rashly swallows greal
mouthfuls of frozen milk should rcmom
her that every time it comes in contac
with the nerves of his throat the whole
nervous system is injured to a grcate
or less extent.

for a century the manufacture ' 6f rcu
diamonds by chemical means. Ho ex
plained his method to the French So
ciety in Aid of the Friends of Science
and actually produced artiticial
and genuine diamonds before the
eyes of his hearers. They were very
small , however , and ho does not bolinvo
that such can be made of size enough to
' "inject trouble into the souls of the
owners of natural diamonds,1' as the odd
French phrase is. But a later chemist
may iinU a way to make great diamonds ,
now that the method is discovered for
smaller ones.
