McMinnville. February 20 1891. ,
Our report last week had just gone
to press Friday morning when the
wires began to report the sudden
drop in the price of egg3 in the East
ern markets. We were fearful of
further decline, but expected it grad
ually. Friday eggs dropped in New
York 4, and on Saturday 2 cents
more, making nearly 7 cents in two
days. At this writing, so far as we
know, eggs are quiet and steady at
the decline. We do not look for
further decline soon, still no man can
tell what a clay will bring forth in
the way of-changes in value of eggs
Today the market is quiet here and
in Nashville. We are paying from 8
to 9 cents hero, the latter being the
ruling price at Nashville. The pro
duct of the country is always large at
this season, and past experience
should teach us to get ready for the
decline which always comes in the
spring, but we are seldom ready
Nashville dealers, at least some of
them, are rather fearful to take large
quantities even .at 9 ceuts. Dried
fruit is quite firm with good demand
for that remaining unsold.

Nashville, Feb 18. The markets
maintain their usual activity in the
distributive trade, and merchants
and jobbers are complaining very lit
tie about short collections. The mar
kets are singularly steady through
out, there being few changes in val
ues of any class of goods to note. The
markets for sugar and coffee rule
lirm, flour quiet, and meats quiet.
Country produce prices of yesterday
are repeated today. There is rather
a dull feeling in egg3 at the prices
quoted, on account of another decline
in New York. Eastern receipts of
Western eggs are enormous. Poul

noted in corn, hay and oats, l'ran

Washington, Feb. 1G, 1891.
Mr. Cleveland's letter against the
free and unlimited independent
coinage of silver did not create the
excitement in Congress that the sen
sational newspapers have said it did.
In the first place the views expressed
by Mr. Cleveland are precisely those
held by him and publicly expressed
just before his inauguration as Presi
dent in 1885, bo that a reiteration of
them was no surprise to those ac
quainted with the man. Of course
there are differences of opinion
among democrats in Congress as to
he wisdom of having taken this time
to reiterate them, but Mr. Cleve-
andfs ft lends point to the fact that
he did not do so until asked to take
part in the anti-silver meeting in
New York. They say that If he had
not given .his opinion in. answer to
that invitation he would have been
open tothe charge of cowardice, and
everybody knows that there is noth-
ng approaching cowardice in Grover
Cleveland's make up.
Many eminent democratic Sena
tors and Representatives, in their
disappointment at seeing the last
hope of the passage of the tree coin
age bill by the House at this session
vanish, as it did with the publication
of Mr. Cleveland's letter, said, upon
the spur of the moment, things
which upon cool second thoughts
they will probably regiet. Mr.
Cleveland may or may not be the
nominee of the party next year, but
it does not appear probable to an un
prejudiced mind that his expressing
a personal opinion, which he was
well known to hold eighteen months
before the meeting of the national
convention of the party would abso
lutely eliminate him from the Presi
dential field. "Successful . politics,"
said a democratic Senator today "are
always practical and if when the
convention meets its members shall
be of the opinion that Mr. Cleveland
is the strongest man he will receive
tbe nomination, otherwise not; and
the rank and file of the party, who
want the man nominated that can
win, not any particular man, will
ratify the choice of the convention,
whoever he may be. Let us all keep
cool and meet the issues when they
confront us. Nothing is to bo gain
ed, but much can be lost, by being
Washington, where both men had
many warm friends, was greatly
shocked by the deaths of Admiral
Porter and Gen. Sherman, one on Fri
day and the other on Saturday, and
many kind and loving regrets have
been expressed by all classes. By
order of Mr. Harrison all of the de
partments will be closed tomorrow,
the day of Admiral Porter's funer
al, and it is expected that Congress
will adjourn as a mark of respect.
He will be buried with military hon
ors at Arlington cemetery, in a spot
selected by himself not long ago.
With the death of these two men the
last of the great Union commanders
ot the civil war have passed away,
and with both of them dies the high
est rank in their respective branches
of the service Admiral of the navy,
and General of the army. ,
The are certain indications of the
near approach of the junketing Sea
son coming in sight. Mr. Harrison
is preparing to make a thirty day
tour of the Pacific coast in the private
car of the would-be Presidential can
didate of the Farmers Alliance, Sen
ator Stanford, and the Senate has by
resolution authorized two commit
teesNaval affairs, and Canadian
Relations to travel around at Gov
ernment expenses next summer.
Senator Plumb stirred up the bile of
someofthe members of the latter
committee by saying that he met the
committee in California last fall and
felt inclined to present it with a map
so that it could find out where Can
Mr. Harrison has not yet deman
ded the resignation of Pension Com
missioner Raum, notwithstanding
his unfitness for the office, which was
fully proven, in spiie of the efforts of
the republicans on the committee to
shield him, by the late investiga
tion. The Senate has succeeded in tang
ling up the copyright bill so badly
that it will not get straigthened out
at this session.
Senator Vorhees, who has been
quite ill, is slowly getting better.
Senator Hearst's condition remains
No one appears now to anticipate
an extra session of Congress this
spring, althongh of course it is possi
ble. There is a rumor that the re
publicans of the Senate are going to
try to rush the Force bill through
during the closing hours of the ses
sion, but I don't think there is any
thing in it.

these strange people existed has not
been decided, but it was thousands
and thousands of years ago, and the
sculptured glove is of the same shape
as the many button ones worn by
fashionable ladies of the present. The
gloves of the ante-glacial occupants
of a cave are supposed to have been
made of roughly dressed skin sewed
with needles ot bone; but they were
worn just the same, and the general
pattern remains unchanged. There
is plenty of other evidence that gloves
are of very remote origin, although
none that goes back so far. The An
glo-Saxons wore gloves in the sev
enth century, but the men were the
ones then to observe the custom, the
ladies covering their hands with
their sleeves. Earlier than this,
Norman officials and high personages
of that country covered their hands,
and in many places in the Bible the
word "shoe" is used when scholars
maintain it means "glove."
