A brigade of at least fifty bicycles
should bo formed, properly decor

four. A very pleasing and unex.
peeled feature of a previous par
ade, was a large number of, little
boys in grotesque costumes I
hope it will be repeatjd. Another
pleasing featuro of a former occas

number of mounted men in col
umns of four. I would bo gratifi

with whom I have assigned or

Mr. Olotworthy, will get together
some hundred of the public school

several patriotic airs to intersperse

The barkeeper is a nsw one, Tom,

tho one we knew, Bomo fifteen

and called for booze, and dudelets
staggered in and burned the lin

on outside the door, their iaceB

year ago. I asked about our old

The same old cry of doom we
'beard some fifteen years ago, I
windered to the cburh yard, Tom,
and there I saw tho graves of those
who used to drown themselves in
red fermented waves; and there
were women sleeping there where
grass and daisies grew, who wept
and died of broken hearts, some
fifteen year ago. And there were
graves where children have slept
for many a year, forgetful of the
woe that marked their short, sad
journey hore, and 'neath a fine
tall monument in peace there Holh
low, the man who used sell the
booze, some utleen veers ago.

The Senate committee on terri
tories decided Saturday to lake up
for consideration early in tbo next
session of congress the omnibus
statehood bill, admitting into the
Union the territories ol Oklaho
ma, New Mexico vnd Arizona.
The decission was reached upon a
tnotiou of Senator Nelsoi. adopted
by a Btrict party vote, the repbub
llcans voting in the affirmative and
the democrats in the negative
This vote was preceded by two
votes on motions made by demo
cratic members looking to the con
sideration of the bill at the pre
sent session. The first of these
was to take up the question next
Wednesday, This was made by
Senator Bate, and was voted down
the republicans voting unanimous
ly in the negative and the demo
crats in (he affirmative. A mo
tion by 8enator Baily to report
the bill Saturday met with a
similar fate on a party vote. The
democrats opposed Senator Nel

its adoption would preclude the
possibility of considering the bill
during this session
