The nntlorml contention of ltepubllcnn
leagues promises to bo the largest that
ha yet been held bv ihat oigahlirfttlotl,
anil among the deleatis will be many
of the loaders of the party from the
various state. The otgnnlziitlon Itself
l largely composed of young men. The
oncotiragemrnt they have lecelved by
thn party generally has lmd inueh to do
In bringing Itrto active work a Inrpo
brainy, earnest element of young cnerRy,
the Influence of which will be relt In the
coming national campaign and will
greatly strengthen the rty.
There ate a number of Influences
which serve to nmke thl meeting of the
representatives of -the lengue ciutw of
Kf-eater Interest and mote Importance
than any that hne prccedod It, liut none
more tltun the discussion of the sliver
question. The convention Is not author
ised to foi mutate policies for tho party,
but tlnre Is nothing to in event discus
sion of tho monetaty Issur any inoio
than of any other national question.
And It Is a Rood thing for the working
element of the pnit to Rot together to
learn fiom each other whnt Is roIiir on
In tho various paits of the country to
lentil omethlnR of the tiend of public
sentiment from other sotlfeos than the
columns of tho partisan picas.
Tho delegates to Cleveland wilt put

sentiment of the country on bimetallism
and open the eyes of tho more unob
servant ns to tho real tteml of thought
among- those who are lo be looked to for
the votes necessary to party lctory.
Theie Is nothing to be Rained In party
councils in iIIsruIsIur tho plain facts.
Tho way to successfully meet nil
emergency Is to fully undet stand the
entire situation as It I". And if this
liollcy Is honestly pursued by those who
will be present In tho convention from
tho West, there can be no doubt that
there will bo a material change of tac
tics on the patt of those who will bo
called upon to do the ptcllmlnnry skli
mlshliiR for the battle that Is to come on
in about a twelve-month.

With the last monthlj report fioin the
tieasury department It was Riven out
that the outlook for tbg immediate fut
ute was most cheeiiiiR, and It was
stated with npihirnnt confidence that
from that time foiwanl the dellclenoy
would stuidlly and rapidly Rrow less.
But It Is another story altogether that
comes out now. So far during the pres
ent month the receipts are no belter
than last month, while the expenditures
keep well up to those of pievlous re
ports. The Rold ieseie Is Just below
the 10(1 million figure and tho s ndlcnte
with which Mr. Cleveland contracted to
"protect the tieasury" Is paying In the
balance due on tho robber loan only so
fast as they are compelled to do to keep
the exact letter of the contract.
The probability that the deficiency
would be decicased somewhat befoie the
lit t of duly has dwindled away Into a
possibility that something may bo done
In that direction b cutting down e-peii'-es,
but the Income fiom whisky
and sugar has been -oiel dl-appolntlng
to the olllclals, and tlu-io Is no Impiove
inent In -iRht at the present time Tbe
one admitted remedy, then, is In cutting
,Iut how the executive dopailmeul of
the government Is going to woik to
reduce expenses In any branch of the
government outside the pension olllce It
is dllllcult to see. Tho saving hinted at
Is limited to $ri,000,000. That amount can
be withheld from the pensioners by a
simple scratch of Hoke Smith's pen, but
it must be by lobbeiy, the same way he
has been taking fiom IVter to pay l'aul
eer since he assumed tho management
of the interior office.
The list of "reissues" published dally
Is really imposing In numbers and Is
calculated to make tho ensual leader be
lieve that the gie.it and good govern
ment Is being mom than usually kind to
tho vetei.ms. Hut the fact Is that nine
in ten of these "reissues" nro reductions
of tho monthly amounts formerly paid
The admlnlstiatlou Is down to Its last
resource in the way of solvency without
putting more bonds on tho market ami
that resource Is tho robbety of the pen
sioners. Tho latest bulletin means that
and nothing more.

Senator 1'lkins talks sensibly and nlso

patt) that theto is at all times an
abundance of pi evidential timber avail

proper timber fiom which to construct

right and proper man shall stand.

may change long befoie the contention

when In half an hour the sum of $15,000
was raised, thus dealing the church of

for years. This Is a large amount of
money to bo raised for sueii a purpose
and no more gratifying evidence of the

are not paid until almost every other

There Is something about llronson How
atd's play of "Young Mrs Vtlnlhrop" thai
not only holds the attention of an audi
ence, but Inspires the impersonators of Us
characters. That Is the reason that Ihls
play was the favorite with the Kemper
stock company nt season, mid that Is the
reason that, In spile of Ihe heavy rnln of
last evening, one of tho largest Monday
nlshl audiences of the present season
turned out for a revival of the play. Thero
Is every rcnsnnnble Indication that the at
tendance will be Istse throughout tho
Duly two tnemherH of the company nro
cast ns they were last season. Miss How an,
thiough her many performances of the
title patt, has worked out a wonderfully
artistic and effective portrayal. She ex
presses the Injured pride, the immolated
ufTerlnR and tho stilled but unquenchable
love of tho character with unvarying tldeb
Ity. Her work In this 10I0 Is the best she
has ever shown her Knnas City admirer.
It would hardly be understood by thoe
who remember Miss Auell's performance
of Hdllh to ray that she. too, has Improved,
for from her fltst assumption of the role
she seemed In looks, in part nhd In every
phase of vocal and physical expresloli the
Ideal of the charactct ; but even first Im
profslous nre deepened by her present de
lineation. She mal.es the Intlrmlty of the
Rlrl touching!)- realistic, but bears It with
such cheerful resignation that. like Her
bert, we almot love her blindness. Mr
Dunbar, who formerly pln)ed the doctor,
plavtMl Douglass Wlnthrop on the roid,
and assumed that character Inst evening
Tbe performance ! the bet he lias ever
Riven with this company, It Is a bit told
In tbe earlier scenes, but is manly and
sincere, nnd has the nrtlstlc merit or being
n splendidly sustained characterisation
Pel hups, after all, the very stolblnes
which one roents a little at flrt Rives the
greater comdstcnev to the unhappy domes
tic lelatlons which follow, Mr Kemper,
who did not nppear In the mst last sum
mrr, but who plncd Herbert In the road
company, makes his urst appearance of
tho present season In that part. He Is
thoroughly delightful, nnd subdues his
manly foice with quite a degree of success
to meet the bovlsh icqulrcnients of the
devoted voting lover.
Among the new people, first Interest nat
uially centeis In Miss Gallatin's Mrs. Dick
Chetw.vn, a very agreeable pprrotmanco
throughout, but larking somewhat In the
rollicking merriment one natural!)' experts
from such a volatile character, Mls Gal
latin does not lniicli well, and a good laugh
does much for Mrs. jnck She does one
thing, however, for which she deserves
thanks. She has raised Mrs. Dick out of
the advetittness element, lo which slip Is
frequently condemned by les disci linlnnt
Ing actresses. Tho advent of Mrs Tan
quern t nnd Mrs. nnstlake Chapel has told
on this character, which Mr. Ilovvaid never
Intended to be one of that Ilk. The Con
stance Wlnthrop or Mrs Mortimer Is boun
tiful In its womanly dignity nnd motherly
tenderness. Mr. Hall, as lluxton Scott. Is
hnnlly unctuous enough nor suillclontly
nuthorltatlve, but this actor Is nlwnvs In
teresting lit all he does Mr, Johnstone
made n character part of Dr. Melmnke,
and Mr Charters took the same liberty
with John, the servant In the latter In
stance, while tho work of Mr. Charters Is
artistic, the eccentricities of the character
seem obtrusive in the well ordered scenes
