TWO CITIES VS. THE COUNTSY.
From New York came a strong element of
the influence that rushed the high-tariff cotton

"The present situation reminds me," be
says, "ot a man in my state who claimed to
have a fine old cask of wine 200 years old.
Ho asked a number of friends ono day to go
down in his cellar and see it, after dilating on
Its age and tbe excellency ot the wine.
"When the friends went Into the cellar and
saw tho cask they protested in emphatic, lan
guage that its age had been misrepresented.
One said: 'Why, look at the staves; they're
absolutely green. I don't believe they are
more than eighteen months old at the most.'
'Oh, no," said the owner, 'they are new, but I
put them in because the old ones were rot
ting.' Another friend broke out with the
declaration that the hoops were compara
tively new, and a third that the bead of the
barrel certainly had not been there all that
time. Tbe man admitted this, too.
"Well," said his friends in chorus, "what is
there old about ther thing, anyway." "Oh,"
was the reply, "the bunghole 18 old; that has
been there all the time."
People who are observers in the Senate are
beginning to wonder what Senator Murphy
came here tor anyway. During his stay in the
Senate he has not made ono real speech yet,
and this in the face of the fact that he repre
sents in part tho richest and most important
state in the Union commercially, and one
whose population is nearly 7,000,000 people.
These can hardly declare that they are "rep
resented," and certainly not that their senti
ments are "voiced" by the New YorkSenator.
When ono thinks bow much time is contin
ually taken up by Hale, Chandler, QslUnger,
Aldrich, and others, who represent altogether
but a mere fraction ot the number tbat Mur
phy is supposed to represent, the silenoe of
the New York Senator becomes nil the more
humorous. Can he title?
It is understood that Mr. Quigg is perfectly
satisfied with Mr. Aldricb's fight against the
tnnffbill, and fairly well satisfied with Mr.
Beed's handling of the Republican minority
In the House.
Mr. Coombs, of New York, is always cue of
the octivo participants in the debates on Dis
trict ot Columbia days, and is always ready to
scent out and oppose any scheme of the street
railways to grab valuable privileges or con
cessions. In bis insistence upon passing a
careful scrutiny on all measures of this char
acter he is an exceedingly valuable man, and
when he does attack a measure of this kind
he does it with a vigor whloh usually accom
plished his end.
Among the resolutions which have Jnst
passed the House is ono introduced by Repre
sentative Bailey, of Texas, providing for the
printing ot the presidential messages, ad
dressed both to regular and special sessions,
since the establishment of the government.
By the amended resolution 6,000 copies are to
be printed, and tbey will be doubtless much
sought for as a valuable presentation in com
pact form of suggestions to different Con
gresses. Inoldentally Mr. Bailey said yesterday
that he thought the publication ot a book of
this character was eminently proper, whilo
tbe publication of "horse books," and other
similar volumes, and then distributing them,
was as indefensible as printing and distributing
Congressman Bryan, of Nebraska, made
one very interesting point in his speech on
tbo removal of the state land tax to which'
apparently no attention has been called. He
cited the fact, in discussing the right of the
Federal government to pass a law restraining
tho citizen from contracting against any par
ticular sorts of money, that the French courts
had decided that a contract against f, note of
the Bank of France could not be enforced,
and urges this to prove that any government
can prevent the freedom of contracts where
tbo element of duress as, for example, in
compelling the payment of a certain kind of
money is, or is likely to be, present.
The point is a strong one, and deserves
careful attention and consideration. If a
creditor is to have the right to force the
debtor to make his contract payable in a kind
of money which Is tbe base upon which a
solid pyramid of currency rests for ultimate
redemption, It is clear that the scarcity of
that special money, which Is the basis, may
result in n remarkably disastrous apprecia
tion of its value, and hence bring ruin to
overy unprotected creditor.

Chicago, Jane 12. The excursion agreement
of tho Western Passenger Association was given
a staggering blow to-day by tho news from St.

To tho Editor of Tnx Times:
Permit me to say that 1 am told to-day (Mon

had decided to apportion out the provisions and
other things that should come Into their hands
to tho men of both the oommonweal of Christ
and Industrial camps pro rata. Instead they
had decided to apportion them out according to
the need of tbe men ot tho different camps. I
was misinformed or else misunderstood ray In

as it Is the absolutely Just method.

Opinions of Congressmen oa the Adjourn
ment of the Recent Silver
The adjournment ot the Berlin silver com
mission without making a definite recommend
ation has been thesubjoct of moroor less com
ment among Senators and members who take
an interest in the silver question since this
result was announced. The news Is some
what of a disappointment to those who bad
been hopeful that the result of the commis
sion would prove tbe prelude to an interna
tional conference, which should proceed
without the co-operation of Great Britaint
but the advocates ot an Independent financial
policy for this country are not greatly dlsan
polnted at the outcome. In referring to the
announcement from Berlin, Senator Teller
sold that he regretted the fact tbat no rec
ommendation favorable to silver bad been
"Outside of the educating effect ot the pub
lication of tho proceedings," he said, "I don't
think tbat the work ot the commission will
have any effect unless it be to increase tbe
conviction, which is already growing in this
country, that the United States will have to
take this question in hand and act inde
pendently of other nations."
The silver leaders In the House say that tbe
adjournment of tbe Berlin conference without
definite results is another evidence that the
United States must execute her own financial
policy without waiting for foreign nations.
Some of tbe Republican leaders ot the House,
who have recently become identified with the
restoration of the silver idea, express regret
that more was not accomplished at Berlin.
Bepresentatlve Bryan, the lieutenant , of
Mr. Bland, .aid: "As long as we wait for
Germany and England nothing will be done
toward restoring sliver, but as soon as wo
recognize that the intorests of our people are
too important to bo submitted to the wishes
of foreign countries and act ourselves, the
sooner will sliver be restored to Its former
place on equality with gold and the sooner
will prosperity return to our Industries."

THE TORNADO TWIST
A Feature Upon Which Weather Bureaus
Are .Mixed L'p.
The tornado and the cause ot Its formation
seem to be less perfectly understood than
even the ever-mysterious electricity. That a
tornado has a violent spiral motion and a dis
tinct ascending motion 13 well established.
The rapid rotary motion tends to form a
vacuum in the center ot the funnel-shaped
volume, and this sucking force brings about
devastation. When a tornado surrounds a
bouse the air inside of it forces the walls
But the inception of a tornado and the
causes which lead up to it have not yet been
discovered. The scientists tell us that the air
rushes in to take Its place, the wind hits
against a hill, is changed in its course and
goes cavorting down the valley, and tbat
makes a tornado. But what gives it the twist?
And thero no mountains In the Mississippi
valley, but cyclones form there. Weather
bureaus with all their costly, delicate instru
ments, have never yet satisfactorily explained
what gives the tornado its twist. The world
is looking for a man who can discover the
tornado in its native lair, and definitely define,
distinguish and describe it All this for the
benefit of our neighbors ot tho East, for the
tornado never visits California. Son Jose

The truth is that electing members to clubs

ALARMS WOULD BE USELESS

Them in School Buildings.

BeraltJ of a Psnlc Most to Ee Feared Drills
the Best Safeguard Bttles Governing Ad
mission to the Normal Schools Order
of Closing Exsreises Adopted.
School Trustees Bowen, Witmer, and Cornish,
who constitute the committee on buildings, re
pairs, and furniture, to whom waa referred the
proposition of the Instantaneous Fire Alarm
Company for the Introduction ot their alarms
Into the public school buildings, submitted the
following report at the board meeting yesterday:
"The danger of fires In school buildings is
slight. If one should occur while the building Is
closed, the instantaneous alarm would be use
less, as It Is not automatic but requires some one
to work it Should a flre occur when the build
ing Is occupied. It would be promptly discovered,
and probably cause little damage.
"The chief danger to the pupils Is from the re
sults of panic. This cannot be helped by the
alarm, but must be guarded against by frequent
fire or panic drills. Xeariy all of the school
buildings, and especially the two-story, light
room houses, are provided with such ample
means ot exit and rescue that there is prac
tically no danger from fire so far as pupils are
"The school buildings are now Insured under
a contract that has tour years yet to run. The
insurance company refuses to give any rebate
on the premiums It the alarm Is placed in the
schools. The rates are very low comparatively,
and are themselves a strong evidence of the
judgment of experts that tho risks of fire in our
school buildings are next td nothing.
"Ihe Introduction ot tbe alarms will cost
C.000 the first year and Sl.ftJO annually there
after. The contingent fund Is already Inade
quate, and this additional expense cannot be
assumed without an appropriation for the pur
pose. We therefore report adversely to the
proposition." The report was adopted.

HE YIELDS TO TEMPTATION.
The Sevcnteen-ycar Locust Is a Bait That
the Black Bass Can't Resist.
One feature that renders the black bass fish
ing unusually cood this year in Xew Jersey is
tho existence of the seventeen-year locust.
It is not generally known, except among; the
guides and old-time fishermen, that these lo
custs furnish the most tempting kind ot bait
for blnck bass. Tbe most cautions and con
servative bass will forget his cunning when a
seventeen-year locust is dangling in his im
mediate vicinity. It is not bard to catch the
locusts. They are thick on the bark of the
trees in the early morning, and the guides
gather them by the score.
CORBETT AND JACKSON.
The Champion's Opinion of the Negro, and
Why lie Is Not Anxious to Fight llim.
Corbett's terse explanation of his senti
ments concerning Jackson illustrates the ir
ritable condition of the champion at present
with regard to tho negro pugilist. There is
no doubt that Corbett would willingly call
the fight off if he could do it without placing
himself in a false light before the public He
speaks In an exceedingly guarded way about
Jackson when talking for publicity, but as a
matter of fact he has a very thorough con
tempt for the colored man. Jackson fought
Corbett in his early days in San Francisco,
and made a showing wblch, according to the
rules of the ring, demands that Corbett
should give him another trf.iL, The odds will
be 3 or 1 to 1 if tbe men meet.
Corbett expressed his opinion ot Jackson
just before be sailed to three men who had an
interest in his stake whtn he fought Sullivan,
and with whom the champion Is on very con
fidential terms. His statement, la brief, was
tbat since his meeting with Jackson the latter
had been growing older and drinking harder,
while he hlmsolf had been growing stronger
and did not drink at all. Jackson Is now
Hearing his fortieth year, and the years which
havo elapsed since he met Corbftt are a de
cided handicap. The 6ame years, figuring on
tho Corbett end of it, have increased the
stature, breadth, and fighting ability of the
cbamDlon. who is still a very young man.
The improvement in Corbett is boyond ques
tion, while all tbe experts claim that Jackson
Sullivan would never meet a colored man
in the ring, and since Corbett has been devot
ing himself seriously to tho stage, he would
likn to take the same position as Sullivan, for
his defeat through a. fluke, a foul, or some
unexpected accident by a colored man would
abruptly end the corcor of the champion.
Tbo fact tbat Corbett has met Jackson once,
however, prevents him from refusing to meet
him again on the ground of color. Corbett's
assertion that he will fight the colored man
before the club which offers the most money,
no matter in what part ot the world the club
may be, will always hold good. Tbe cham
pion is a thrifty and sagacious business man,
and be fights for money, not glory.
