was read and discussed. Messrs. Charles
P. Chouteau, of St. Louis, Calre, of Louis

organization. Another committee, consist

At a preliminary meeting of tho delegates

that the French government shall engage
to admit all American productions at the'

make the same engagement regarding the
productions of France, that if either nation
imposes a domestic duty upon its own pro

the productions of the other patty of the
The feeling in French commercial and
political circles is not altogether favorable

London, July 30. Debate in tho house
of commons on the foreign jmlicy of the
government was resumed to-day by Lord
Sandon, who defended the policy of the
government. Mr. Gladstone followed, de
livering a tine oration, in which he tiereely
denounced the Anglo-Turkish convention.
Hon. Mr. Cross, secretary of the home de
partment, made a very spirited reply and
the debate was then adjourned.
A CAUSTIC REPLY.
London, July 31. Mr. Gladstone having
written Lord Beaconstield demanding a
list of the occasions when he (Gladstone)
had personally attacked the premier, Lord
Beaconstield has sarcastically replied that
he will get some one to look up Mr. Glad
stone's speeches and pamphlets for the last
two and a half vears.
THE FALL CAMPAIGN.
THE MAINE ItEPUBI.ICAXS FIonTINO POR
HARD MONEY OEN. BUT LEU OUT OF THE
RACE FOR CONGRESS.
New York, July 30. The Herald's
Portland, Maine, special says: The Repub
lican statu committee has been in session
discussing the prospects of the campaign.
Only one question came up prominently,
a in I that is the attitude of the
party on the finance ques
tion. The sweep which the
Greenback clement has made in all the dis
tricts of the state, make it necessary for the
Republicans to declare themselves squarely.
The entire congressional delegations are
here, including the venerable Hannibal
I lam I in. Mr. Blaine fought for the word
'coin," while Hamlin, Ferry, Utile and
Powers insisted on the old hard-nioney plat
form of "gold or its equivalent." Hamlin
and his followers insisted that the only way
to save the party was to come out
squarely for hard money, raise the
old war cry and rally the entire
voting strength of the party for a
final struggle. Blaine, who took a
position in congress in favor of silver, main
tained that the new dollar is now a part of
the currency and the word "coin" would be
more in harmony with the views of a large
portion of the Republicans, and its plat
form would keep the money men, who now
lean toward the Greenback doctrine, from
seceding. There is a general desire to keep
this question out of the convention. It is
understood that the gold men succeeded in
carrying their jioint and the party will go
into the. campaign to try the conclusions
with the Green backers on an out-and-out
hard money platform.
11UTI. Ell OUT OF THE RACE.
New York. July 30. The Times Wash-
ington special snvs: Gen. liutler, in a con
versation with a friend, has declared that
he would not be a candidate for election to I
congress. lie lias alivailv served ten vears

about the reported candidacy of Grant for a
third term Butler did not believe Grant de
sired to run again, but he favors the passage
it an act of congress creating (.rant field
marshal for life, with a salary of if2"i,000 a
year. Some recognition of this kind, But
ler thinks, would be a filling climax to
Grant's illustrious career.

"OLD SINC'S" ADVICE.
The Esmeralda, Nevada, Herald has
h,-ard Sine Barnes talk: "Now, my son,
never interrupt an old man when he is tell
ing alwut the good old days of '49," said
Sine Barnes to a saucy youngster, as he
grabbed him in the act of trying his iea
shooter on Sine's nose as he siit in the shade
on Novacovich's corner with a lot of old Uiys
exchanging reminiscences of early days.
" No, my son, never fool with any of the
old-timers there are mighty few left;
they are getting old and feeble; their
shadows are falling far to the eastward;
in a few years there will bo none left,
and then you and the rest of the Imod
iums can come to the front and say as how
you were personally acquainted with
old Colonel linker, Senator Broderick,
Lola Montcz, Ralston, J. P. Jones, Sharon,
Jim Fair, Mackey, Flood and O'Brien, a
great deal better than I am with you, and
slept with them, and ate with them, and
loaned them a twenty when they were so
poor that they did not have a dollar in tha
world, and not a decent shirt to their backs;
and tell alsuit men who are not near as li
beral nowadays. No, my son, do not jH-ster
the old lsiys. Let them indulge in their
little sports of whisky drinking, pedro and
swapping lies, ami pattern after them so
that when you arc old, baldheaded, and
carry a big bassdrUm under your vest, you
will be a shining, profitable light to the
coming generation. See here! If I ever
catch you playing any more tricks on tho
old man I will break you in two git!"'
And Sine settled back, tired out after st
much unaccustomed talking, while the boy
shot around the corner.
