Now to Elect Parker.
' CONVENTION" HALL, ST. LOUIS, MO.,
. July 9.?The National Democratic Con?
vention has nominated an honest and
straightforward man for the presidency,
l-'or tho sake of party harmony and
Democratic success tho convention de?
cided to mako no mention of the money
question In tho platform. But Judge
Parker was determined that there should
be no misunderstanding as to his position.
He made his views perfectly plain to the
convention, und said ho would decline
tho nomination If the convention was un?
willing to take him as a gold standard
The convention considered his commu?
nication carefully, and in spite of Mr,
William J. Br**an"s opposition, informed
Judge ' Parker that notwithstanding his
position on the money question he was
still acceptable and the party's candidate,
and so the matter ends.
Now let us turn In nnd elect Parker.
As Major Daniel said, "He's a foot taller
than he was when.he was nominated. He
has shown himself to be brave and cour?
ageous, placing conscience above the
highest honor of his party, and he Is
worthy of the support of all Democrats.
Vf. S. C.
Judge Parker's Telegram.
The action of the Platform Committee
In deliberately leaving out the gold plank
as' a compromise measure with Mr.
Bryan was bitterly criticised yesterday
morning In the Eastern Democratic pa?
pers. The Now York Times said with the
greatest vel?enjence, that Judge Parker
could nor/In*"*"justice to himself accept
any such makeshift platform, unless he
de ciaf.* e a spedi fU-aily for gold 1jri lus
letter of acceptance. The New York
Woria went so far as to call on Judge
Parker to Inform tho" convention beforo
It adjourned of his future course In re?
gard to sound money. To tho same ef?
fect spoke tho Brooklyn Eagle, which
paper brought out Parkor as a candidate.
The Eagle said that Parker would meas?
ure up to tha requirements of the situa?
tion and could be trusted to speak with
no uncertain Bound on his monetary be?
liefs. Throughout the country the "Dem?
ocratici papers worn mystified or alarnifrt,
and the Republican papers corresponding?
ly elatea 'over an. action that left the
position of the Democrat*) in regard to
sound money still in doubt,
As one paper well said: Why should
the wishes of a few delegates from min?
ing camps in Republican States or Ter?
ritories, with no votes, force euch a con?
dition on the party as to lose beyond
all hope the absolutely essenilal votes ot
New York, Now Jersey and Connecticut
by terrifying the worklngman, the cap?
italist and the savings bank depositor
with the threat o? a cheap dollar?
The true story ol Mr, Hill's compro?
mise with .Mr. Bryan has not yot been
told. But among tho reasons for that
blip then/ will not be found any ?tflcient
belief in the tree silver theory as a prac?
tical issue in finance or politica, The
men of ? lie Democratic party are sane
and sound; they know thai free silver is
not and cannot, be u national Issue.
And the convention's action on Judge
Parker'? telegram has given that know!?
edge the effect of a platform declaration'.

w Growth of Civic Beauty.
The desire and the accomplishment of
civic beauty has been one ot the most
marked and encouraging facts ot our pub?
lic Ufo In recent years. The people of
America havo begun "to And out that a
beautiful city does not cost any more
than an ugly one; that It Is healthier,
Jiappier and pays better revenues.. The
lest has been made in factories, and It
uas been demonstrated conclusively that,
a working man will respond to his sur?
roundings, be they uplifting or depressing,
just as readily as any other human being,
and the sensitive purse of capital is ac?
cordingly trying to create the surround?
ings that will enable labor to produce the
So, too, In cities, it was first attempted
by philanthropy and then proved by ex?
perience to be more profitable, wiser and
more efficacious to give the boys and filrls
a chance to amuse themselves In a. ration?
al way than to try to correct the tenden?
cies toward misdemeanor and crime which
Inevitably and invariably follow upon the
Ufe of the average child whose playground
and associations.are In the streets. It has
been but a short step from the discovery
that children were benefited by having
open air, clean grass and spreading trees,
to say nothing of the unostentatious but
satisfying sand pile, to the dlscovory of
the benefit which the grown up people
derive from Just such simple and natural
things. If any one doubts the enormous
difference in happiness which can be
made by a few trees judiciously planted,
let him drive out the Brook Turnpike ?r
along any of the roads that Intersect the
Glitter estate, as they are to-day shaded
and beautified by long, symetrical rows of
spreading trees, and compare Its beauty
with the arid waste ot dusty road which
has been transformed by the foresight and
broad-rrilhded ideaa of that great and
public-spirited citizen, Major Lewis Gln
It is Impossible to measure, the impulse
towards desire for chic improvement
which Major Glnter's Improvements In
the suburbs of Richmond have given.
The object lesson of .what has been
dono is a continual stimulus to those wno
want io continue the good work, and Is an
unanswerable argument to the "let well
enough alone" obstructionists. Richmond
is growing very rapidly, but its growth
is by no means on satisfactory lines.
Despite the building of the West End and
the rapid Increase of population In that
section, tho houses are as a whole neither
beautiful nor inspiring, They are flat
topped, narrow fronted, and without gar?
dens, or yards. They offer shelter from
the heat and cold, but they make but
scant use, and in very many caees none
at all, of those environments which dif?
ferentiate a house from a home. Just
think how much more beautiful the AVest
End would bo, and how.much more valu?
able ihe property would be, If you wish
10 look at it that way. If tho houses had
a grass plot In front, porches, with vines
or rambler roses climbing over them, and
yards behind in which the children could
play or cultivate each one their own little
garden. Richmond Is a city of lovable
and delightful people. We havo an unsur?
passed climate , and will shortly bava an
unequaled water supply. Let ua make It
a city of beautiful humes. Vio have the
opportunity, It only needs the will. If
once tho Civic Improvement League can
awaken this spirit It will have given
Richmond an asset both for wealth and
happlnees of Immeasurable value,
Already ex-Senator Hill, Air. flheehan
and other enthusiastic New Yorkers, who
took a prominent part In the St. Louis
Convention, are being condemned for
speaking out so plainly and so loudly
when the question of platform was under
discussion. Senator Daniel Is being con?
demned in like manner, for, according to
tuo press reports, Hiebe gentlemen wore
credited wllh saying openly and above
board that unless certain thlnas were
done (some of which were not donej |u
regard to the platform, Judg?, Parker
could not carry New Yerk, Connecticut
and other Htates necessary to his election.
? contrast is bolng drawn between ihe
conduct of llu'Bi) gentlemen anil that of
Hi;, Republicans at the Chicago ironv<-n.
lion. Nobody ever heard of a Hcpubll.
can on that occasion, or any oilier similar
occasion, predicting beforehand thai their
candidale could, not, carry the earth.
U is cliuracierlit?. at Dem?crata to

characteristic of Republicans t? do things
In secret, ahd not let nil that they sfty
end think reach the ear of the people.
Right thero we find the essence of Dem?
ocracy nnd modern Rcpubllcnnlim. Dem?
ocracy Is opposed to doing things In
secret, either in convention or In tho
mnngement of government; opposod to
anything that smacks of centralisation;
whllo Republicanism makes some of Its
best efforts In tho dark.
Rut what ot It it Mr. Hill and Mr.
Shcehnn and Major Daniel did, In the
excitement of the moment, speak out aiif
say Parker could not carry Now York
or other States If certain things wore dono
or certain things were loft undono? There
Is evidence that euch prophecies do not
always como true, In that same city ot
St. Louis In the year 1ST?, John Kelly,
then tho acknowledged Tammany leader,
tore his hair, heat tho air, and loudly pro?
claimed that Samuel ,T. Tilden could not
carry tho Stato o? Now York, and for
this reason should not bo nominated by
tho Democrats, But all the same, Mr.
Tilden was nominated, did carry tho State
ot Now York, and was elected President
of the United States, although he was
robbod of the fruits of his victory.
Messrs. HUI, Daniel and others wero
doubtless perfectly honest In tho views
thoy expressed, but due allowance must
bo made for tho oxcltement they were
laboring under nt ' tho time, nnd tho
probability is that their prophecies will
fall to tho ground Just'as John Kelly's
did In 1S76.
Periodicity of Booms.
"Sure systems" and tho periodicity of
booms In the stock market have been
two alluring problems of eternal fas?
cination for the human mind. It Is
? favorite advertisement for stock brokers
to get out llttlo diagrams showing that
because the market fluctuated once in
so many years a generation ago, it will
do tho samo thing to-day, and, yet
.despite these recurrent booms at foresee?
able times, the public goes up and is
cheered with unfailing regularity. This
much at least is certain, howover, about
booms, that the natural boom comes
when for a long period of timo the pub?
lic has' enjoyed agricultural and manu
iacturlng prosperity, and has exercised
such * economies tn production and ex?
pense as have resulted in the accumula?
tion of a store of wealth ready for in?
vestment. It was the long period of en?
forced economy, and the good crops in
the face of. forelgn.famlne nnd-.the ex?
port trade-which 'brought us gr?af sup?
plies of gold? that started. Hie celebrated
boom of 1879. These .physical causes had
developed unnoticed, - the public having
become so inured to hard times that they
were well nigh convinced that no good
times would ever come again, and when
cne morning the public awoke to find
that they needed all sorts _of supplies;
rood, clothes, railroad equipment, a full
f,edged boom was launched. Exactly simi?
lar conditions prevailed In '98 with tho sole
exception that 1S79 had the benefit of the
lew currency laws. Like the boom of
'79 the boom .of '9S Inevitably wore Itself
out," and wb,en w.o are ready for another
boom, that boom will como. But at pres?
ent no one (can with any degree of cer?
tainty say when.
There are lesser booms due to lesser
rhyslcal or psychological causes, such
aa the boom^of 'S5, which spent itself m
a month; ' and the' boom of '86, which
r.howed a'violent outburst of speculation,
In which -Reading rose 3d points, Louis?
ville 30, New York nnd New England 30,
Manhattan Elevated 50. These extraordi?
nary and. oxcesslvo advances, says
the Washington Times, were due to
the public's appetite for speculation, and
when on December 18th, the first mil?
lion share day in Stock Exchange h'story,
call money? suddenly,, rose-.'to 1-2 of 1
per cent, a day,' RV?dlng'tei ? 15 pointa
und Manhattan IO points within 24 hours,
without any explanation, except that tho
hull movement was played out.
This was a pseudo bull market, and af?
fords no basis for determining the fu?
ture. In such a case as tho present stock'
market, we can, however, recall that in
3?&3, after the heavy liquidation, tho
slock market waited two years before
the public came in again, despite good
ciops at home. So, even If we have abun?
dant cotton, and -wheat-and corn crops,
we are not assured of a bull market. The
problem before the United States is the
solution of the question of competition
with foreign agriculturists and manufac?
turers, in vlow of tho Increasing tendency
toward hostile tariff legislation.
The South .Nominated Parker,
The vote on the first and ony ballot for
the Democratic nomination for the pres?
idency shows that the South was,nearly
as solid for Judgo Parker ??? tho conven?
tion aa It will be at the polls on election
Twelve Southern States voted as a unit
for the New York Jurist, casting for him
272 votes. Florida gave him alxout of
ten and AVest Virginia ten out of four?
teen, and quickly changed throe more to
him,' thus making her vote stand thirteen
to one In favor of Parker.
Missouri,, another Southern State, cast
her thirty-six votes for Mr. Cockrell as
a compliment to a favorite son, and,
undoubtedly if there had been a second
ballot these votes wolld have gone to
Parker .As It was, of the 667 votes neces?
sary to nominate Judge Parker on the
first ballot, the South gavo him 291.

School celebrated the Fourth of July with
a holiday and a serlos of entertainments

to be pleasantly remembered. The boys
had the (Ime of their lives, and gave
every evidence of enjoyment of tho day
and its varied programme. In tho morn?
ing a spirited and well-contested - base?
ball game was played by well-matched
teams, and witnessed by the lads of.the
school; This was followed -hy a speclnl
holiday dinner with an attractive menu,
.Including a large variety of vegetables
grown by tho boys themselves. Lemon?
ade flowed freely and abundantly durln*
the day. At 2 o'clocre the boys assembled
in a grove- near tho school, and there
