DENVEII , Aug. 3. ( Special Telegram to
TUB HKC. ] It was with feelings of delight
that MX ) occupant * at Illvorsido park re-
colvcditho news that their supply of dally
bread wns not to be cutoff for nt least n day.
For nearly a week U line been the Intention
to ao away with the public soup house , but
last night a now order was Issued and the
commissary department of the relief and
charitable associations will continue In busi
ness at the old stands. Thn meeting
which brought about this condition of
affairs was a spirited one which
did not adjourn until midnight. A largo
number of the members contended that
the camp elrow the vajrrants nnd the crim
inal class nnd thnt they would come and re
main hero as long as they were fed and fur
nished with a place to sleep. The men who
were of this opinion were iu thu minority ,
hence the fact that the boys are "tenting on
the old camp ground" tonight.
At the beginning of the week when the
railroad companies first issued the manifesto
of "full faro or no ride" Kollof camp had but
n handful of residents , but now the number
has increased and if heroic measures arc not
adopted by driving the hoboes out of town
the city will soon bo feeding ns many worth'
less creatures ns it did a few days.HBO. The
men who nightly slumber beneath the Unts
object to being called vugs nnd bums , but it
is their own actions thnt brand them as
such. During the early days of the
week , when the mayor wanted llf ty men to
go out und cut weeds , chop down trees nnd
clean the alleys , It wns with considerable
difficulty that the number was secured , and
each morning siuro then an effort has been
made to got u now gang nnd pass the work
aroujid. No fruits , however , have attended
the effort , for each tlmo the sumo party of
men will bo seen working In order to repay
the public for the charity that is being be
stowed upon them.
The course pursued by the 4 ! > 0 Is the rea
son why the people designate all of the men
as hoboes and nsk for the nbandontnent of
the resort where they congregate.

Secretary Morton was at his desk in the
Agricultural department a short tirau this

by appointment , and together they visited

partment nnd talked ever the appointment
of a number ot receivers ami registers for
the four oldest land ofllccs In Nebraska. It
is understood that they made recommenda i-

man Castor being used as endorser for both

unco will be tlio onlcers at Lincoln , McCook ,

over the entire list of land onices In No-
jraska with a view to recommending the
consolidating of n number of them ,
Secretary Smith having determined
to abolish about ono third 6f
; ha present ofllccs. It is contended
that there Is. little
very business before some
of the old onlcers und that several of the
districts established In IS'JO ' nro entirely too
small , and that in view of the diminution of
the available homesteads in Nebraska's
public domain the tmsincsa can oe easily
transacted by one-third of the present force
of onlcers. Those consolidations mean more
than would appear. They contemplate reti
clean sweep of the men now- holding the :
ofllccs at an early day.
Cantor Id'vlowii the ftltuntlon.
n questioned by TIIB'BKB correspond
ent this evening ns to the report that did
number of the offices would bo abolished und
all the ofllccrs removed. Air. Cnstor said ;
"Yes U Is Secretary Smith's intention to
reduce the number of land ofllco districts in
Nebraska and to do it at onco. I think that
in the consolidations ' the olllccs locqlct ) into
railroads nnd 'those mosteasy of access to
persons having business before tlio ofilcers
should bo retained , and that wherever there
ura ofllccs'abolished , those in remote sec :
tions and hard of access should bo the ones
dropped. I understand Bloomington will boone
ono of those abolished , and that most of
that district will bo ndded to the McCook
I'oor Proipscta for tlio Indian.
It wns stated to Tin : BEB correspondent
today t > y one who has the confidence of
Speaker Crisp that Mr. Holmnn of Indiana ,
who is marked forrcuromcnt from the house

It will be recalled that rs.on
Mr , Holman has been
nt the head of two or three junketing com

WASIIINOTON , Aug. 3. Hoprescntatlvo
Springer of Illinois , chairman of the ways
and means committee of the last congress ,
was at the cupltol toduy. In brief his
opinion Is that congress will not be In session
moro than a week or ton days In August. In
that tlmo hopeful Mr. Springer thought the
silver purchase clause of the Sherman act
will bo repealed nnd the ways nnd means
committee empowered to draft a tariff bill
for submission to congress when It recon
vened , which should be some time In October ,
As to the tariff , it Would bo Impossible for the
ways and moans committee to do justice to
the subject while the house is in constant
session. There wcro too ninny disturbing
elements and the surroundings are not
favorable for wise nnd safe legislation. But
if the committee was empowered to prepare
a bill nnd allowed to go to some quiet place
on the sea shore or elsewhere and pursue
its labors unmolested , the result would bo a
satisfactory bill. Touching the course of
the ways and means committee In dealing
with the ttiriff Springer said he would doubt
less report one ceneral tariff bill Instead of a
series of specific' bills.

WASIIINOTON , Aug. 3. "If the president
ports company with the Chicago platform
i believe his party will part company with
him , " were the siglnKlcnnt words uttered by
Representative Gates this afternoon as ho
discussed the situation. The Chicago plat
form , upon which ho wns nominated and
which the people endorsed in such thunder
ing tones last November , calls for the repeal
of the Sherman law and the maintenance of
gold and silver as money upon a parity. Any
scheme which contemplates the abandon
ment of silver is antagonistic to that declara
tion of principles , and will not be supported
by the congress that Is to convene next
week. There can , in my opinion , bo no un
conditional repeal of the Sherman law , If
the president has set out to repeal the
Sherman net without offering anything in
in its place , ho has set up a platform not in
accordance with that upon which ho went
before the people. "
Mr. Outes looks for the repeal of the
Sherman law with a condition that will pro
vide for the frco coinage of silver at uu in
Senator George came in today from Geor
gia. So far as the silver eiuestiou is con
cerned the senator plants hiiiHclf upon the
platform ho bus upheld in all nis speeches in
the senate , and says ho is a friend of silver
nnd ho has not changed his views ono whit.
Senator Squire of Washington is ono of
the few western senators who takes the
ground that the president should be. allowed
to deal with the silver question in his own
discretion. Ho bollovcs thnt it would bo
good policy for congress to pass n joint reso
lution permitting trja-vrcsidont to suspend
the operation of the silver purchase section
of the Sherman law at his owu discretion.

Mr. Bland , the champion of free coinage ,
arrived today and was seen in consultation
with members of his fulth who are In the
city. Ho said the friends' of silver Jiad
agreed upon " no plan of campaign , other than
that they "wero opposeel to the repeal of the
Sherman Jaw unless they were first given
free coinage of silver. Mr. Bland , In speak
ing of the ratio , said ho saw no reason to
change that now in force. So far as the
possibility of repeal was concerned Mr.
Bland wus emphatic in his declaration that
the unconditional repeal of the purchasing
clause could not be accomplished iu either

Lodge will leave for Washington Saturday.
Said ho iu nn interview : "I think congress
will repeal the purchasing clause of the
Sherman net , although it may not bo done
ejuite so promptly us is hoped huro. I do not
underrate the necessity for some afllrmativo
measures in regard to the currency. Some
thing ought to bo done looking to the sale of
the silver bullion in tlio treasury , under
proper : limitation , for gold. Some amend
ments : ought also to bo made to the national
bank act. But these measures can wait und
can bo much bettor handled after the repeal
is disposed of. "

Maud and I.llllo had imbibed a quantity

to ia rough-and-tumble light In which
Maud wtts hit over the * head with
a beer bottle. The bottle nnd the
"booze" wcro too mucli for Maud and she
fell into an unconscious state , causing the
bystanders to think that she had been
killed. Ono excited person telephoned thu

The patrol wagon arrived on the scene iu

her nnd found that the blow with the bottle
had not Injured Maud's head. Ho Instructed
