PUEBLO'S PROTEAN PALACE.
The Mineral Mountains and Geological
Glories of Colorado's Canons.
Tho guardians of the gateway through
which all the hidden treasures of the
centenial state are most readily reached;
the keepers of the door beyond which
are buried all the gold and 6ilver ores,
theiron, coal, copper and lead, and the
marble' and granites and precious stones
of Colorado, are about ready to surprise
and delight the world with an exposition
of the finest display of mineral wealth
ever beheld by the eyes of the men of
any age in any country. Crystal pal
aces, ice palaces and corn palaces have
sprang into imposing realities through
the taste and enterprise of nations of
states and of communities, but
the people of Pueblo are materializ
ing the shining glories of an iridescent
dream and studding the majestic walls
and vaulted ceilings, the imposing
columns and graceful pilasters of a
palaco with the protean wealth and
splendors of Aladdin's lamp or Fortu
natus's cap. Greece had her Atheneum,
and Rome her Coleseiuni, but it has been
left for a youthful city in the west of tho
west to lead the ages in the production
of the most unique building ever erected
by the hand of man. Sixty per cent of
all known minerals, besides numerous
precious stones, are found in the fastnesses
of Colorado. All of these will be polished
and burnished and placed in the walls
and columns of this exceptional structure
which will then be lighted up by,
and which will reilect the effulgence of

To appreciate tho novel beauty of the
Colorado mineral palace of Pueblo it
must be seen midst its smelting eviron
ments, where, relieved by its back ground
of great high lights and somber shadows
of mountains and mesa, it stands a gem
of natural setting. As the time for open
ing the displays approaches all of the
people of the state of Colorado are show
ing an undisguised interest. It will
prove the mecca of capitalist and scien
tist, alike, and the pride of a whole
country. And it will continue to attract,
for the Mineral Palace is no temporary
affair. Its solidity and magnitude are
commensurate with its conception, and
its beauty will bo as imperishable as its
mineral ornamentations. Trans-continental
travelers for years to come will
stop to see and wonder, to tarry and to
study. There they will find thousands
of specimens of ores, fossils and freaks,
of petrifactions and crystalizations
blended into new effects of colors, of
shades and of lights. Every county, ev

Whether the effects of the atmosphere,
orthowakr or what not, Kentuckians
are in some respects "a peculiar people,"
though it can hardly be claimed that
they are especially "zealous of good
works." Their penchant seems to run
to polities, though they essay the arts
and sciences, and so forth with the easy
abandon of life long familiarity. All
this applies in a general way totiie deni
zens of tho dark and bloody ground; but
every now and then some one rises above
I the rest and for the moment poses as a
j special bidder for notoriety, if not fame.
. It is noted that Dr. J. R. Buchanan, of
Louisville, has done considerable in the
way ot prophesying and psychometrizing
in his time, but his latest effort in that
line eclipse all the rest for brilliancy and
originality. Ho writes in The Arena
that our earth is blowing along toward
"an infinite horror, in which a sudden
death is our happiest fate." So far as
the doctor is concerned personally ho
docs not care, since -he is already on the
home stretch of his last quarter of a
contury, and the terror will not come in
Rut for tho rest of tho world, those
who are still to live "twenty-three or
twenty-four years," there will come a
"convulsionary period," the like of
which has not been known since Noah's
flood. To begin, the power of the church
will lc shivered to splinters nothing
left of it. Tho power of the state will
faie little better, and "Iho marriago re-
lation will approximate freedom." There I
wm come ine uiier destruction ot mon
archy, leaving only the sultan of Turkey
on his shabby aue olfeteold throne. It is
very kind of Dr. Buchanen to except the
sultan from the junk shop of oblivion to
to which he consigns all the rest of tho
monaruhs. But even we of the United
States are not to escape. Tho Republi
can party will go to the sticks, to be fol
lowed by the Democratic party in power;
the Democrats will give no better satis
faction titan the Republicans did, and
they, too. will go down ingloriously,
never to rise again. This ought to be a
satisfaction to both jwrties. The lalxr
party will then take hold, and run things
to suit itself.
Sanguinary revolution will break out
in Europe at the bogianing of the next

doctor does not tell us what thev are.

An interesting experiment in co-operative
living is soon to be tried at Evanston,
near Chicago. Twelve heads of families
will erect houses for themselves arouud
a central court, in which will be placed a
common building for kitchen, laundry,
etc. The general idea is not new, the
French familistere furnishing the origi
nal suggestion, which, in many places,
has been carried out in a manner similar
to the Chicago plan. The idea is wholly
practicable, and there does not seem to
be any good reason why hundreds of
such communities should not exist. The
plan, though not embracing all the de
tails, is now in successful operation in
this city, and, we understand, with per

Chief Mayes is au adroit schemer. Af
ter playing a bluff game in regard to the
claim the Cherokees assert to the strip of
country bearing their name, and failing
by this and every other artifice that in
genuity could suggest to maintain said
claim, that wily chief now resorts to an
appeal to the sympathetic in order if pos
sible to move the president and cause
the administration to forego the order to
remove tho cattle belonging to white
men from the land in question. If the
Cherokees ha 1 any substantial claim in
fact upon the land in question, Chief
Maves' appeal would no doubt have
some effect; but in view of the fact that
they have grown rich as a people from
tho benefactions bestowed by the gov
ernment, and that tho government has
complied with the term of all treaty
stipulations with them, the appeal is
simply a begging of the question.
ONE CAUsifoF THE STRINGENCY.
The very high rates for money in tho
New York market the past week, says
the Financial Reporter, h tve been partly
duo to the large diversion of capital to
southern enterprises. In conversation
with a earful investment banker, yester
day, he said:
"I have in mind four brothers, wealthy
retired merchants in Pennsylvania, for
whom I had made large investments in
city bonds and real estate. Suddenly
the spirit of enterprise seemed to rise
again in one tho brothers, and ho sold
out a portion of his investments, and
went into the iron manufacturing busi
ness in the south. Then he sold other
investments and went into various coal
and mining speculations until he had
more than 61,300,000 in southern enter
prises. He made a great deal of money,
and one of his latest ventures was tho
purchase of a coal property for 100,000,
which he sold for $1,000,000. His three
brother, seeing him accumulating
wealth so rapidly, also entered again
upon au active career, and are operating
in the south. All this capital which goes
south is so much business taken away
from us. Of course a reaction will oc
cur some time, but meanwhile they
are making a great deal of money in
that section of the United States whose
development was embargoed by slavery
before the war."
From Clmuncey Depew's Uosponslvc Speech.
I left Paris at night on tho fastest train
on the continent; it covered ti00 miles in
nineteen hours, and for my fare and a
section in a sleeping car, and a dinner
and breakfast, both poor, I paid $ol
showing the blessings of a railroad run
by a government. The same thing with
better accommodations and in less time
is done on tho Central and its connec
tions for $'20.
One other thing is attractive. It is an
incident which relates to our own busi
ness of transportation. This magnificent
internal commerce which we have is
based upon tho free communication of
our railwavs everywhere and their inter
change. It is based upon the fact that
we connect so intimatelv. and that we
run so freely, and that our systems
are so perfect. The continent of
Europe and the island of Great
Britain, if brought together com
mercially by similar energy and
enterprise as that which characterize
the railways of the United States,
would have ten times the prosperity
which is now possible to them under any
circiunstances. I will illustrate this by
one thing. "When I was at Verona I
went into tho market place, and I found
there beautiful peache-. selling at live for
two cents. Twenty days before I had
been in London, and a peach worth eat
ing could not be had at less than twenty

only 000 miles apart. The trouble is cost
and facilities ol transportation. Upon
this table vou havo fruit from California

THE SENI0E KANSAS SEKAT0E
SPEAKS AT PrTTSBUBG.
The Beginning1 of the Gubernatorial Cam
paign in the Keystone State He Con
tends That Every Citizen Should
be a Staunch Partisan
From the Chicago Tribune.
Pittsburg, Pa., Sept 13. Senator In
galls, of Kansas, came to Pittsburg to
day and opened the Republican guberna
torial campaign in Pennsylvania at the
Grand opera house this evening. He
had an audience of nearly 3,000 persons,
all of them voters save a few ladies' in
the boxes. The senator was in splendid
voice and good humor. His sarctism cut
like a razor and he scored the De
mocracy unmercifully. The reception
accorded him was overwhelmingly
cordial. Senator Delamater. the can
didate for governor, was present, with
Senator A. L. Watres and Colpnel T. J.
Stewart, the other candidates on the
state ticket. Henry W. Oliver, the
millionaire steel manufacturer, presided
and a hundred or more leading Republi
cans occupied the platform. In the
course of his address Senator Ingalls
EVERY MAX SHOULD BE A PARTISAN.
Fellow citizens of Alleghany county:
In a popular representative form
of government political parties are
an indispensiblo necessity. "When
there is no dynasty, reigning
family, no hereditary nobility, no pre
rogative nor class distinction, tho govern
ment is the party in power, and hence it
is that every American citv should be a
politician. Not in the sense of being a
candidate for office, but in the larger, in
the wider sense, and in the nobler sense
of taking an intelligent interest in public
affairs. Applause. And not only
should every citizen be a politician, but a
partisan politician. 1 never have learned
the lesson of belonging to the Republican
party a little. I never have learned the
lesson of voting for the candidate upon
the Republican ticket occasionally. Ap
plause. A man ought to bo a politician
as in everything else, a partisan politician,
He ought to believe that his wife is the
best, his children tho most attrative, his
city, his state, and his country tho nobl
est and most deserving of his devotion,
or he is not worthy of having a wife,
children, city, state or country. Ap
plause. There is a certain class of politicians,
sometimes belonging to one party aud
sometimes to tho other, who aro so extra
ordinarily perpendicular that they lean
over a little backwards applause,
who are never quite sure that they aro
belonging to a party unless they aro
voting for the candidates of the other,
and giving aid and comfort to their ad
vetsaries. Applause. Therefore, Mr.
President and fellow citizens of Pittsburg,
I confess to beinc a partisan politician
and I havo no sympathy with those who
roll up their eyes until you can see
nothing but the whites and hold up their
hands in holy horror and enlarge the lor
ders of their phylacteries and stand on
tho corners of tho streets magnifying
their own virtures and thanking God that
they are not as other men and other Re-
Eublicans. Applause. If a man is a
emocrat, in God's name let him bo a
Democrat. Applause. Ho that is
filthy let him be filthy still. Laughter
and prolonged cheering. And if lie is a
Republican, in God's name let him bo a
Republican in off years as well as presi
dential years. Applause.

upon every one of these questions from
the beginning down to the last syllable
of time even so la e as Thursday of last
week the Republican party has always
been right and the Democratic party has
always oeen applause, and it will' con
tinue to le wrong, world without end,
amen. Prolonged applause.
The Democratic party is the political
dumping ground of politics in the nine
teenth century. Laughter and ai
plause. Every excluded heresy, every aband

SOMETHING OP A KICKRR HIMSELF.
My fellow citizens, I liave erred in
calling the Democracy a party. It is an
aggregation of the ignorance, the imbe
cility, and tho disloyalty applause of
this' country. Applaiiee.j Strongest
where public morality is weakest, rein
forcing all the dangers and destructive
Bgencies of societies and having neither
conscience nor courage of convictions, it
is the perpetual and constant menace to
the prosperity, the honor of the Ameri
can people, and vet, fellow citizens, I oc
casionally hear some poor mortal confi
ning of the riepubtican party because
it has had many indefensible policies.
Well, I have Wen somewhat of a kicker
myself. Laughter. There liave been
Republican leaders that I did not like;
there have been Republican polkrios that
I did not approve of and endorse, nd I
have said o without hesitation. I think
the worst Republican thnt ever lived u
better by far than the best Democrat that
ever lived. Applause.
