is unusually short, some meadows
being scarcely worth cutting. Farm
ers can generally provide for home
use by a substitute in the form of
corn fodder or eke out a deficiency
of clover and timothy by sowing mil
let or huogarian. Hut a shortage in
the hay crop is a big loss to the
country. The farm value of the bay
crop of 1899, according the agricul
tural report, was $570,8S2,872, being
$16,000,000 more than last year's
corn crop. The prospect for a large
corn crop was never better at this
season of tbe year, but the shortage
in the hay crop will have a tendency

law passed at the regular session at
tbe rrtiuest of the publishers, who
sought protection from speculative
damage suits. John K. Cballacombc
of Montgomery, introduced the re.
pealing bill. It wai reported from
the committee on enrolled and en

viruo in remarkably short order. The
gang has been planning this revenge

investigation was proposed, and
they passed tbe bill by a vote of 93
yeas to S3 nays. Among the men
who supporUd the repeal bill are
members who opposed it at the reg

consistently. The prime m'otive of
tho majority cf those who voted yea,
however, was to "get back" at the

Klklna and Harrison.
Senator klkins. It is understood, is
willing to relinquish any presiden

tained for himself if the leaders can
agree upon a common candidate
Friends o. lien. Harrison are count
itio- upon Mr. Elkins' support in the
movement to bring about tbe nonii
nation of the Indiana man next year
Mr. Llkins, however, has not com
mitted himself upon tbe matter.
Several months ago Mr. Elkins. dur
ing a conversation with tho es-presi
dent, took occasion to say to him
very frankly that, in his opinion, or
if he weie in bis place, thai be would
not a;ain seek the presidential oince.
he said. "Your position in history ;
is assured. Yon have bad all of the
honor and glory to be derived from
the position of president. There is
no telling wnat niignt Happen if you
should again become the 'president.
Circumstances and conditions, whioh
you conld not control, might arise
which would make yonr administra
tion a failure, in spite of all that yon
conld do to prevent it. You got
through four years without making
any mistakes, an d you would proba
bly go tnrough anotner lonr years
without committing any serious
blunders, but no man is infallible.
and every fellow is liable to make
mistakes. My advice tj you, Mr.
Harrison, is not to listen to any sug
gestions having in view your re
turn to the wbite bouse"
Gen. Harrison informed Senator
Elkins that his own views upon the
subject were in harmony with those
expressed by the senator, tic bad
no idea or intention of making any
effort to secure the nomination in
1896. Gen. Harrison then reminded
Mr. Elkins that he had not desired a
renomination in 1892. It was only
after tbe persistent and systematic
attempts on tbe art of certaiu poli
ticians to belittle nis administration
and hold it np to ridieule that he
was induced to consider the matter
of a renomination. His Idea then
was simply to vindicate himself and
his administration. "Having been
defeated." Gen. Harrison added, !
should not, under any circumstan
ces, make anv effort to secure an
other nomination. Even if mv in
