Every Republican in the city should
remember the organization of the Re
publican club at the Court House Tues
day evening at seven o'clock and make
it a point to be m attendance. Such
an organization has a great opportunity
for good work tho coming campaign
and every loyal member of the party
should belong to it
The most encouraging reports are
being received from all sections of the
country by the Republican Congres
sional Campaign committee. Some of
these reports, especially from states
where for a time it looked as though
tho silver craze would overwhelm the
common sense of the people, show that
a strong reaction has already set in
and that upon second thought many
republicans who conscientiously be
lieve in the free coinage of silver
have concluded that they cannot afford
to sacrifice everything else they believe
an for the sake of one thing which
argument has convinced them would
be at best but a doubtful experiment
when attempted by this government
alone ; consequently they will support
McKinley and Hobart whoso adminis
tration they know will not bo experi
mental, but will be conducted along
the true and tried lines which have
made other republican administrations
successful and the country prosperous.
Everywhere republicans are preaching
the doctrine of common sense, and
'thousands of old-time republicans who
have been led astray by glittering
promises are returning to the fold.
Eyery day it becomes more apparent
that republicans must win their fight
without depending upon the aid of
kicking democrats, who by talking as
though they might vote for McKinley
and Hobart are merely seeking to make
the republicans so overconfident that
they will not work as hard as they
ought The number of gold democrats
who will vote the republican ticket arc
not likely to bo numerous enough to
bo a factor in the election, and many
of those who now say they will do so
will wind up by voting for Hryan.
"Why, Mr. Cleveland, the head and
front of the gold democrats, cannot
oven keep his cabinet in line. Hoke
Smith is tho only member who has yet
openly come out for Bryan, but there
are excellent reasons for the belief that
at least four members of the cabinet
will vote for Iiiyan, nnd a general
break-up of the cabinet in the near
.future will not be surprising.
&Jy It haying been staled by officials of
r tlio Ivnitrhts of Labor that the labor
organizations of tho country were
practically solid for Bryan and free
silver, Mr. George W Meyer, of Minnea
polis, Minn., President of the Journey
man Stone Cutters Association of North
America, who has been in Washington
on business, was asked for his opinion.
He said: "The labor men in Minnesota
will not make money an issue in this
campaign. While there are many who
would like to see the free coinage of
' silver become a law, yet they will not
vota for It. They will vote for protec
tion. I found this same bentiment in
Wisconsin, Iowa, and the two Dakotas.
'While, of course, in the Dakotas the
silver feeling is strong, protection will
carry the states. In Minnesota labor'
is a strong factor in politics, haying
only recently shown its strength by
nominating Loren Fletcher for a third
term in Congress, although he is op
posed to the free coinage of silver with
out International agreement, and his
riyal for the nomination was a pro
nounced silver man. Labor men will
not support McKinley because they
loyd him, but because of tho prlnclplo
ho litis nlwayRadyocated.
Tho republican party's platform and
principles is happily condonsed in tho
following short extract from a recent
speech mado by Maj, McKinley, which
will be sent out in largo quantities by
tho Congressional committee :
"The republican p.rty stands
for honest money and the chance ,
to earn It by honest toll
Every republican nowspaper in tho
country ought to keep tills extract
standing, in its blackest typo, during
tho campaign, and the slips containing
it which aro being1 sent out by tho
Congressional committee should bo put
before the eyes of every voter.
Republicans expect n red hot fight in
Nebraska, but all tho information
which comes to Washington adds to
the belief that tho state will go repub
lican. For instance, Mr. W. F. Gurley,
of Omaha, who is now in 'Washington,
says: "The fact that Mr. Bryan is a
resident of tho state is not going to
have much influence, as people gener
ally realize that this is a fight for prin
cipals rather than persons. Mr. Bryan
has always been regarded as more of a
populist than a democrat, and on that
account I doubt if he will receive the
undivided support of tho Nebraska
democrats But what cheers us most
is the fact that every republican has
his coat off and is working with earnest
ness and confidence for the election of
McKinley and Hobart."
It was reported here last week that
Mr. Cleveland intended calling an ex
tra session of Congress in September,
to act upon a message from him recom
mending the recognition of the inde
pendence of Cuba. It is doubtful, but
any way an extra session holds no ter
rors for republicans.
NO AUTOGRAPHS FOR HER.
Servant Girl Had No Uso for the Check
A certain family, whose home is in
tho suburbs of London, have in their
employ, says Amusing Journal, a
cook, whoso ways aro invariably so
methodical and lier cooking' so near per
fection that, were she to leave her pres
ent home, one-half of tho mistresses in
the district would be eager to secure
lier services. Never by any chance lias
dinner been late at the Myrtle ilia, or
the joint under or over done, neither has
any policeman crossed its threshold.
But, treasure that she is, she came roar
to making a change of residence at tho
close of her very first month's stay.
On the morning of the day upon
which her wages became due, her mis
tress requested her to step into the
study, where her master was wailing to
pay her. In a few moments she rushed
from the study to the kitchen, where
she had left her mistress, and in less
time than it takes to narrate had
given that astonished lady notice.
"But -uliatever is the matter, Mary?"'
inquired her mistress. "What has
your master said or done to annoy
"lie hasn't said nuthin'," replied
Mary, as she llourishcd a check in her
mistress' face, "but he's on'y given, me
this for a month's slavery. Not me; I
ain't no ortj graph collector, I ain't."

Tho lied Sen Miracle Often Seen In Link
It is a well-known fact tliat at cer
tain times of the year Link river, a
stream n mile nnd a quarter long, which
connects the great water systems above
and below this point, becomes almost
dry, hays the Klamath Falls Express.
This state of affairs, however, lasts, as
n rule, but a few hours, during which
time people have been known to wall:
ncioss the river, 300 feet wide, without
getting their feet wet. The bottom of
the river litis been dug out in many
places by the action of the water, form
ing large potholes, and when the river
ljeeomes dry these holes are filled with
trout, which are left stranded. At such
times it is a common occurrence toseo
-men and boys knocking the fish on the
head with clubs, and in this way secure
many a good menl.
There are many traditions regal ding
this phenomenon among the Indians
here, but the real cause of the low wa
ter in the river is the action of the wind.
'Die course of the stream is southeast,
nnd the high winds which prevail in
the spring and fall are from the south,
and blow up the river. The outlet from
the upper lake being small, the force oi
tihe wind keeps the water back in tho
big lake, causing the river to become
A FRENCH INCIDENT.
Cyclist with n llrot.cn Lee Wins u
A fatal cycliiig accident happened re
cently at Maison Lafiltte. Two young'
Englishmen, F. Morris, the steeplechase
jockey, and F. Davis, first stableman in
the employ of L. Robert, the trainer,
had arranged a bicycle match Of six
kilometers from theMaison Laflltte rail
way bridge to the Croix do Noattles and
back. They had almost completed the
race when Morris, who was a little
nliead, looked liack to see how far Davis
was behind, and in, doing so ht letl hia
machine run against the curbstone. Tho
unfortunate rider came to the ground
and'broke his leg below the knee. Mor
ris, who was following close behind,
could not avoid his fallen opponent and
was thrown heavily to the ground,
where ho remained insensible.
Disregarding both Ids own brokcn.leg'
and his friend lying motionless on tho
ground, Morris, in his anxiety to win
the race, mounted his bicycle nnd soon
reached the winning post, with ono foot
on tho pedal, tho other hanging useless
on the opposite side. Davi was then
carried home, but he dled'duringr the

Ono of the most horrible railroad ac

between the iron rail and tho heavy

A GREAT DINNER.

They Aro Still Alive.
The greatest dinner that I ever sat
down to, says Watterson in the Courier
Journal, consisted of a leg of mutton,
dressed w 1th mustard, a bit of hot
wheat bread, and some fresh butter,
with half a jug of fine whisky to wash
it down. It was in front of New Hope
church in the summer of 'G4. Some
one had sent Kustis n leg of mutton.
Some one had sent Yeatman a large
pill box qf butter. Bragg, Gen. Polk's
cook, had some flour. Eustis and Yeat
man invited Gov. Harris nnd myself.
The governor happened to have a key
which fitted Gen. Polk's medicine at,e.
All of us united in making the rolfwry
of a vial of Irish whisky, the gciVii

Jawyer, according to the Chicago Chron

"Well," hhe said, after a moment's
lellectlon, "I washed lay two children
and got them icady for school and
sewed a button on Johnny's coat and
mended a rent in Nellie's dress. Then
1 tidies up my sitting-room and made
two beds- and watered my house plants
and glanced over thu morning paper.
Then I dusted my parlor and set things
to rights in it. 1 washed some lamp
chimneys and combed my baby's hair
and sewed a button on one of her little
shoes, and then I swept out my front
entry nnd brushed and put away the
children's Sunday clothes and wrote a
note to Johnny's teacher, asking her
to excuse him for not being to school
on Friday. Then I fed my canary bird

Strike In the Jtrown Hoisting Company'
Ct.i:vKi.AND, 0., Aug. 1. -'i'lio lockout
nt tin1 works of tho Brown Hoisting
and Conveying Machine company's
works is again in foict. Late r'rlday
the executive' committee of the strik
ers held a meeting and declared tho
strike on again. This locked out
men declare they will give the
Brown Co. a fight to a finish now.
There seems to have been it misunder
standing of the terms of settlement
when the lockout was declared off
Mondny. The company dcclareb that
it is living up to tho text of its agree
ment, while the men assert that it has
on several occasions violated it by hir
ing new men, while a largo number of
the old employes o,f the company were
on the books as applicants for their
old positions. After tho meeting of tho
executive committee the following
statement was Issued:
"In consideration of the Brown Co.
having violated their contract with the
men and state board of arbitration, wo,
as a body, feel ourselves exempt from
all obligations to tho company. The
demand, as tit first presented, will now
be strictly adhered to."
The strikers arc in an angry mood
and trouble is almost certain to come,
and the police will now use sterner
methods than those recently employed.
F. W. Buckingham, who shot over the
heads of a crowd of strikers on Wed
nesday, was pursued from the works
by strikers Friday. They threw stones
and lie again used his revolver.
