The California Democrats.
In California the free silver scnti
ment has proved effective in bleuding
into harmony the democrats, popu
lists and silver republicans. At the
state iermcnuic convention held re
cently at Sacramento, a full ticket
was nominated carrying on it the
name of prominent men in each of the
three parties. James G. Maguire,
who received the nomination for gov
ernor, is a democrat, while Edward
Hutchinson, candidate for lieutenant
governor, is a opulit. The other
nominations were distributed under a
satisfactory agreement. In the plat
form there is an enthusiastic indorse
ment of tho Chicago declaration. Al
legiance is especially aflirrued to the
demand for tho free and unlimited
coinage of silver and gold at the es
tablished ratio of 16 to 1. It may
be observed as indicative of demo
cratic opinion in general that the Cal
ifornia platform indorses the action
of congress in declaring war against
Spain; commends the democratic sena
tors and congressmen from California;
praises the democrats in con
gress for supxrtiii our armies,
and commends them for opposing the
war revenue measures as unjust aad

"We favor the fullest investigation of
all conditions exisiting in the Philip

and obligations of this country in the
matter of their future treatment and
disposition, to the end that final ac
tion in relation thereto shall be intel
ligent and based upon a full knowl

interests of the United States. While
we do not favor an aggressive policy
of territorial expansion, we are op
posed to the surrender to Spain of any
of the territory that has been acquired
by American valor and the expendi

i A Paiater's Conscience.
In the course of some reminiscence
of Sir Edward Berne-Jones a corre
spondent of The Westminster Gazette
remarks: Those who are not "offended"
by the paradoxes of Charles Lamb would
bare delighted itf Burne-Jones' plaT of
humor and imagination. Let me justify
my reference to Charles Lamb,
I once returned to Burne-Jones so trie
books which be had lent me 80 years
before, writing to him to tbe effect that
if it was base to keep borrowed books
so long it was heroic to retnrn them aft
er such long possession as might well
breed the sense of ownership. Is reply
"The retnrn of those books has sim
ply staggered me. It has also pained
nle, for it seems to raise the standard
of morality in these matters and per
haps to sting tbe susceptible consciences
of book borrowers. I hare many bor
rowed books on ruy shelves. I would
rather the owners should die than that
I shook! bare to think about these
things and return them. I have two
costly volumes that were lent to me be
fore that little incident of ours, which,
you may remember, was in Bed Lion
square. I hope tbe owner is no more,
for I simply will not give them up.

Slang; Puzzled Him.
Edonard Remenyi, the great violinist,
need to say that some of the hardest
studying he ever did in bis life began
after an experience b)B bad in Detroit.
"On my first tonr of this country,"
be delighted in telling, "I worked un
ceasingly to acquire a knowledge of the
language and got on fairly wclL But
the 6lang that I found so prevalent baf
fled me more than anything else. I
gave a performance in Detroit one night
and met with a reception that warmed
my heart toward her people. Among
other things, this appeared in one of
tho papers next morning: 'Here an
ngly, little, bow legged chap, whose
clothes hong loosely about bis ungainly
person, waddled to the footlights. But,

"Now, I couldn't make out what
that 'sakes alive' meant, so I timidly
approached a gentlemanly citizen, told
him of my inability to grasp the mean
ing of the slang, and asked him if the
expression was intended to be compli
mentary. "He kindly read it and replied,
'Well, I sbonld snicker.'
"I was more bewildered than ever,
and from that time on made the study
of slang one of my chief occupations."

At the next rencouter the bishop stop

The gaMuut soldier replied, "He has

tried again with the query, "How is
your mother?" "Well," said the offi
cer, smiling, "I thiuk she must be all
right, or yon would bare beard had she
been indisposed. "
The bishop walked away, but his
curiosity was greatly aroused. Seeing
the station master, he at once asked
him if be could enlighten him as te
who the young officer was with whom
he had beuii convert-lug. "Oh," replied
the station master, "why, yonr lord

A Brave Briton.
When tho attack was made on Sidon,
during the war with Syria, it became
necessary for tho British troops to ad
vance across a long, nn protected bridge,
in the faro of a battery of six guns,
which completely commanded tho ap
proach.. The men were unwilling to ex
pose themselves to certain death, when
Arthur Camming, carefully dressed in
full uniform, stepped forward to the
middle of tho briilga. It was immedi
ately swept by the fire of the battery.
When the smoke bad rolled away, there
stood Cnmming intact, carefully brush
ing the dust from his boots, after which
he stood erect, fixed a single glass in
his eye and looked back at the men.
This was too much, and they captured
that bridge and battery with a whoop.
