Opriictl to I'liri-lsn Silver The
John M. Tluirstoii addressed the Youn
Men's Kcputillcan club at 1'atternon lial
last evening , and he had a largo audlcnc
Jenplte the largo amount of caloric that ha
been stored In tlio big room during the day
The speaker was somcwlmt delayed by th
lateness of the train from Grand Island , an
Prof. Frank Nelson of Unilborg , Kan. , mad
a brief address to entertain the crowd.
When Mr. Thurston was Introduced he re
ferreU to the fact that hU voice had bee
somewhat tired Muring the afternoon by a
address delivered to ( seventeen acres a
Grand Army reunion at Orand Island , Ini
ho believed from experience that his vole
always Improved as the campaign proceeded
and that although It was last evening a
ragged as a populist platform , he hoped I
would bo better Inter on.
The first part of Mr. Thuraton's addrcs
was devoted to the | n-lnclplo of protcctlo :
to American Industry as developed by thlrt
years of republican ascendancy , The re
publican party , he declared , believed in th
humanity , the dignity , the equality and th
'right of American labor. He laid down th
cardinal doctrine of the republican party
that every man had the right to labo
when and where he pleased and to recclv
a fair price for the work of his hands. Th
.real prosperity of a nation depends not upo :
Its accumulations of wealth , but upon th
opportunity afforded to every man to woil
every day In the year at a fair wage. Tim
country Is In desperate straits , Indeed , whoi
men are compelled to go up and down th
highways' asking for work. For twent :
years under republican supremacy there lui
not been a time when an honest laboring mal
had been compelled to walk the streets li
search of work. At the present time 2,000 ,
000 men , who were enjoying plenty of worl
at good wages up to the last day of Ilenjamli
Harrison's administration , are wanderlni
along the highways and byways of the coun
try seeking employment. The despcrat
condition of the country demands th
best thought of the American people.
THE SILVKH QUESTION.
The greater part of Mr. Thurston's addres :
was devoted to a dlscuslon of the silver ques
tlon from a political rather than from ai
economic or theoretical standpoint. Alludlnt
to the local free silver agitation , lie said thn
there were a few misguided people whi
were claiming In this and other weslert
'states ' that prosperity could only be brough
about by some scheme of finance that woulc
not bo acceptable to the more conservative
people of the cast. Mr. Thurston character
Izcd this talk as the sheerest folly. Hi
assured the audlenco that no legislation 01
the silver question coujd come as long ai
President Cleveland occupied the white house
No congress could be elected strong onougl
to override the veto that Grover Clevelam
"would be sure to Interpose. Hero in the wes
the people nre In the minority , both In con
grcss and out of It. The great west , grea
as It Is , cannot , single-handed and alone
enact legislation. Financial legislation cai
only como about by the assistance and co
operation of a respectable number of tin
people' of the eastern and. middle states.
The SUCC5SS of the populists lias frightcnec
tlio conservative people of the east more thai
anything else has frightened them since tin
war , and the frightened east , upon whos' '
1 assistance the west must depend for Intelll
gent legislation , can certainly put off an ;
action on the money question. Silver leglsla
tlon will bo Impossible until every branch o
tlio government Is once more In the hand :
of the republican party.
The enemy In this state proposes to as
sault the republican party this fall with :
demand for the froa < and unlimited colnagi
of silver at a ratio of 1C to 1. In answer t <
that assault tlio republican party says , first
that whatever money the nation provide !
must bo honest money. No legislation wll
ever bo accepted In this country that puti
the Goddess of Liberty and the America !
eagle on dishonest piece of money. Mr
Thurston declared himself In favor of th <
protection of the American mine as well ai
the American factory and the American farm
DANGER POINTED OUT.
Ho believed that the American peopli
could honestly and fairly provide for tin
free coinage of the product of Amcrlcat
mines , but stated that rather than see tin
United States mints thrown open to tin
silver of foreign mines he would oppose an ;
legislation looking to the ' free coinage o :
silver. To open the American mints to tin
silver mines of the world means that tin
mine owners and silver speculators of Europi
could buy up their cheap metal and bring1 li
to the United States , where they could tnlti
from the mint $1 $ for every piece of monej
which cost them but BO cents. They woult
then be able to give this GO-ccnt dollar tc
the American farmer for a dollar's wortl
* of- wheat or to .American . laborer for i
dollar's worth of toll.
In conclusion Mr. Thuraton declared thai
although the drouth "nnd the burning BUI
. had destroyed the crops of Nebraska they
p. li had not destroyed the patriotism of tha pco
I' plo nor their enthusiasm for the rcpubllcar
piriy. He predicted that the republicans
would nominate a ticket that would stain
against the fusion and confusion of the othci
parties and tha.t It would be elected by r
majority of 25,000 , and that a legislature
with a majority of republicans would elccl
a republican to the United States senate.

Samuel Macleoil.lnte superintendent of build
Ings of the Hoard of Education , has bobbct
up with at newambition. . This time Samue
Is haunted by the delusion that the Interest )
of th ccjioola require that ho should be i
member of the bo.ird and after duo conslJmi
tlon of the lubject he has announced to som
of hU particular cronies and ono or tw
others that ho Is a full fledged candidate to
the honor. ' Samuel linn announced his In
tcntlon In his characteristic way : "I nn
going to bo a member of the board and al
can't stop me , " was the way he put 1
to one gentleman , anil to another ho Is re
ported to have remarked that ho was "polni
to be the chairman of the committee on pub
lie property and buildings , too , "
( Jiiestlotn of How lt > Iti'troncli Annoy Mom
lirrx of the Itonril ,
There are a number of questions conncctci
with the management of the High school ti
which the High school committee of th
Hoard of Education Is devoting a good dea
of time. Tlio most Important of these Is th
result of the present somewhat dilapidate' '
condition of some portions of the building
Some of the window sills ore rotting a\v .
and various other Indications arc In cvl
deuce that the structure has seen Its bes
days and will soon h.wc to bo either re
modeled or replaced. As tohlch of thcs
pluns should be followed there Is some dlf
furence of opinion.
Some of the members are not In favor o
ppcndlng any money In repairs. They osser
that the building has reached that condltloi
where If repairs arc once begun they wll
have to be continued every year and stll
the structure will be far from satisfactory
They claim that It would be better polio ;
to save the money that would be expendei
In repairs until such time as they can affon
to replace the old building with a permanen
and more satisfactory structure that wll
answer all purposes for many years to come
Another question which bothers the com
mltteo Is the high ratio of expense per pupl
In the High schoM and also in some of tin
other schools of the city. The rules of tin
board provide that no class shall contain les ;
than thirty pupils , but this rule Is dlsrc
garded In many cases , which results In In
creasing the expenses of the school.
According to the last report of the super
Intcmlent the average dally attendance pc
teacher In the High schcol , not Including tin
principal , was 27.9 pupils. The cost pe.
pupil per annum was $14.74. This make :
the High school rank among the mos
expensive schools of the city. Outside o
the training school , where the average yearl ;
cost Is $101.71 per pupil , the most cosilj
school Is the Eckerman , where there Is at
average of only 18.9 pupils per teacher , anc
the expense per pupil Is $51.32. The oppo
site extreme Is reached at the Franklli
school , where each teacher has forty-nine pu
plls and the cost Is only $1C.04 per pupil.
The Castellar school with thirty-nine puplli
per teacher costs $20.70 , nnd the Lake
and the Kellom schools , where the average
number of pupils to a teacher Is forty-tw <
and forty-three respectively , they manage t <
get through the year at an expense of les :
than $20 per pupil. The Ambler school will
half that number of pupils to a teacher cost :
$42.75 per pupil.
The fact that a difference of more that
100 per cent In the coat of education pei
pupil exists In the various schools Is cited te
show that. there Is something radically wront
with the present system. It Is believed thai
by a thorough overhauling of the classes the
number of pupils to a teacher might be In
creased , and the expense correspondingly
diminished. Out of forty schools , nine have
smaller classes than Is allowable accordlnf
to the rule of the board , and It Is said thai
no better results are obtained In these cases
than In schools where each teacher has more
than twice as many pupils under her super
There Is also some discussion In regard tc
dropping several of the studies. In the Higl
school course that require special and hlgl
priced teachers , but are chosen by only i
very few of the pupils ,
The superintendent's report shows thai
during the year only eight pupils out of 87i
took the course In geology. The same num
ber studied astronomy , and only ten were
registered In trigonometry. It is urged thai
It Is a waste of funds to pay special teach
ers to teach these branches to classes o :
scarcely more than half a dozen pupils , anc
that the money so expended might better be
applied to some purpose which would benefil
a greater number of pupils.
At the beginning of , the .September terrr
considerable dllllcuHy' Is anticipated in ac
commodating the Increasing -number of ap
plicants. for admission to the High school
The same difficulty was experienced lasl
year , and as some Increase Is expected Ir
the enrollment this fall , something will have
to be done to supplement the resources ol
the establishment. .One plan that has beer
proposed and which seems to meet will ;
favor Is to replace the cumbersome seats
now In use by opera chairs , which will take
up less room , and by which It Is though !
the capacity of the rooms can bo Increases
to a considerable extent. Samples of the
chairs are now on exhibition in Superintend
ent Fltzpatrick's olllce , and he estimates thai
by their use room may be acquired for sev
eral additional pupils In each room. The ad
dition of the pupils to the various rooms
would also somewhat reduce the average
cost of education per pupil , and economize al

A few minutes bfre o'clock yestcrdt
morning fire was discovered In the rear i
the building at Twenty-fourth and 1 street
occupied by Charley Hlnz for a. grocei
store. The flames Be.ined to first Isst
from a small coal shed at the rear of tl
store , or from the stairway leading to tl
second floor just above the coal house. 1
an Instant the whole west end of tl
structure was a sheet of flames nnd a fe
seconds later Dr. Everett's residence , whlc
Is Just.across the narrow alleyway , was al :
ablaze. J. M. Tanner llv s just south i
the Hlnz building , there being only a spat
of five or six feet between the houses. M
Tanner's girl sleeps In lht > rear of his res

household and the alarm was telephoned I

pencil to awake about the same time. !

were prompt In getting to the scene , but tli

the whole neighborhood would be burned ou
The water pressure was so weak that th
firemen had to use ladders to throw wult
to the roof of a story and a halt cottogi
Had there been any wind all the adjolnin
buildings would have gone. All the window
on the north and west sides of Mr. Tanner' '
house were cracked from thu neat , but th
building did not take fife. The househol
gerels wore carried out of Mr. Conner's res
denco Just cast of Dr. Everett and more o
less damage was done In the moving.
Dr. Everett and his wife barely had tlm
to escape with their lives. The building
were BO dry that they burned like papei
A few small articles were carried out , bn
nothing of value was saved. The house wa
nicely furnished In every department an

Ho and his wife and two children wer

he had $1,200 Insurance and on the stor

The origin of the fire Is a mystery. 1
is qulto evident , however , that it was th

A fight between Police Ofilcers Mitchell
and Flske and a gang of hoodlums occurred
at the corner of Eleventh and Davenport
streets about 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon.
Mitchell arrested Steve Hanifan for disturb
ing the peace. He was fighting with an un
known man when Mitchell stopped them nnd
started to lead Hanifan away. The crowd
of toughs objected to this and assaulted the
officers. Mitchell pulled his revolver and
tried to bluff the fellows In' front of him.
Some one reached over his shoulder ,
snatched the revolver and struck the ofllcer
a stunning blow on the head. Officer Flske
came to his aid. The fight became general
then for a moment or two , but the police
got the best of the assault and locked Hani-
fan up. At the jail the sere heads of both
ofllcers were bandaged by Dr. Towne. War
rants were Immediately sworn out for the
arrest of the disorderly party , and before
sunset Pat Rcardon and Charles Rogers had
been locked up and charged with assault.

A few days ago John McCartcn , whos
home Is In Nebraska , but who Is now I
New York , decided that ho wanted to gc
married , says the New York Sun. Althoug
Mr , McCarten Is 63 years old ho had neve
been married , and hadn't thought much abou
matrimony , but now he had come to a con
tlltlon In llfo when ho needed n helpmeet , s
he advertised as follows :
JOHN M'CAUTEN , aged C3 years. I ar
going home to live on my farm ; I have 10
acres of land , no debts or mortgages ; per
Bonal property ; 12 miles from Hemlngford
Neb. I want to marry a working Protestan
girl If she suits me ; stout nnd good looking
medium height , from 1C to 28 years of age

you were nine years of age ; must have $10C

McCarten does not pretend to be young o
handsome. His bent form and hardenci
hands tell of hard labor. He says he hai
worked In Phlladclphl , Plttsburg , Bostoi
and other places as a heaver of coal. Fo
twenty years ho saved his money when time :
were good , and spent as little as ho couh
when they were bad. In this way he go
together $900 , with which he went west fivi
years ago and took up a quarter section o
government land. He put up the necessary
Improvements , and last fall , just about as
the end of his J900 was reached , he got r
clear tltlo to the farm , and Is now reaely te
work It with assistance.
"You can't work a farm without a team , '
ho explained to the reporter , "and I haven'l
got any team. But I'm going to get ono ami
50 out there and raise a crop this fall. "
Possibly the wily John had the team Ir
iilnd when he put In the clause requiring c
lowry of $100 of the favored maid who be-
: omcs his wife. All day yesterday Me-
3arten sat In the second-story back reemit
it 34 Third avenue and received applicants ,
tfo one accepted the published Invitation tc
ntervlew him for six days , but there were
several shorter consultations. In the fore-
loon there were three applications , but none
stood the fire of McCarten's searching ex-
iminatlon. The standard set up Is a hlgli
me , and he will be satisfied If he finds some-
joely within a week.
The first applicant was a typical Irisli
servant girl , and she had the requisite $100.
McCartcn gazed admiringly upon her strong
inns and willing hands , as well as her rosy
: omplexlon , and for a time It looked as
.hough he would be suited the first time
: rylng. But a snag was struck when the
ellglous schedule of qualifications was
cached. The girl was a Catholic , and
hat settled It. McCarien sighed as he
llsmlsscd her , but he Is obdurate on the
liiestlon of religion.
"I want to live In peace , " he explained.
'I am a Protestant and there would be
lothlng but trouble with a Catholic wife.
don't want any arguing or quarreling or
alking about religion , or my wife telling
ne I ought to do this or do that. "
The next caller was good looking enough
o suit McCarten's aesthetic eye , but she
lad a tcmlerlolnlsh look about her that
Mussed him to frown , and the conference
ras short. The third wasn't strong eyiough
o suit , and that settled her case.
McCarten wasn't discouraged oy his poor
uccess yesterday. "Maybe they might be
ust as good as"bett'er looking ones , " he said ,
'but I'll wait for a few days before I de-
Ide. I must have a wife who Is strong
nough and won't be running up doctors'
illls. Three girls ain't many , but It's jjooil
nough for the first day. They haven't had
line to begin coming In from the country
ound about yet. I hope they will lomor-
ow. Country girls nre good looking , ai.d
hey're strong , too. . The hardest thins Is
o find the right sort of girls th.it cln't
lathollcs. There's no trouble about the
noney part. One of those girls today hod
500 , and I had a hard time getting rid of
icr , I tell you. "
Mr. McCartcn doesn't care to have his
lorlralt published , at least , not until all
he applications are In.
