In view of the fact that the republican

considered by some as a master stroke of
policy on the part of that gentleman.
Thk democratic senatorial convention
of the Twenty first district held at Cam
bridge yesterday, performed its work
with neatness and dispatch. The nomi
nating of two candidates for the legisla
ture is a new departure, but it cannot
fail of good results. Ordinarily the re
publican majority in the district is suffi
ciently large to insure the election of two
candidates, but this year the situation is
entirely different by reason of a bitter op.
position to one of the republican candi
dates. Both of the democratic nominees
are personally popular with all classes,
well acquainted in the district, and per
fectly qualified to represent the district
as it should be. The nomination for
state senator is also a iudicious choice,
and divides the representation on the
ticket as nearly equally as possible be
tween the two counties. Altogether it is
a strong ticket, and deserves the support
of every conservative citizen.

The Scene on Grand Avenue.
As the column moved down Grand ave
nne, and brigade after brigade fell in from
the side streets, a grander scene of glitter
ing pageantry could not well be imagined.
Through the trees on that well-shaded
avenne the bright plumes, glittering epau
lets, shining swords, and other knightly
paraphernalia glistened and danced in the
rays of a declining nun with most beauti
ful effect, and appeared as one endless
tream of brilliancy. The only affair of
the kind that equaled it was the one by
uniformed knitrhts in Cincinnati three
years ago, which Gen. Shermen reviewed
and pronounced the finest since the close
of the war. There were at that time 10,000

The Tar Heel Farmers' Alliance rutting
a Flea in Ilia Ear.
Raleigh, N. C, July 9. A few days
ago, in an open letter to Elias Carr, presi
dent of the North Carolina Farmers' Al
liance, Senator Vance said he could not
support the sub-treasury bill. The official
organ of the Alliance yesterday in a lead
ing editorial attacked Vance. It says:
'Senator Vance may have underestimated
the strength of the Alliance. Men living
right here in the state have done this. He
may think he may ignore Its demands, but
he will find that It contains mora than
one-third of the backbone of the state.
Senator Vance is a brainy man, but we
contend that the thousands of Alliance
men in North Carolina know a thing or

Washington Citt, July 9. A very In
teresting and important strti'gle is immi
nent in the house over the original pack
age bill. Cannon, representing the com
mittee on rules, yesterday made an effort
to bring that bill up for immediate con
sideration, but his resolution was lost by a
vote of 90 to 87, the opponents of tho bill
combining with the friends of other meas
ures agaiust it. Cannon intends making
another effort to-day, but it is believed a
majority of the house is against the bill
and will oppose its consideration.
A Fight Between City and Country.
Cannon made a confession of the weak
ness of his cause yesterday by embracing the
bankruptcy bill in his resolution, but even
this bid for the support of the friends of
that measure proved unavailing. The fight
over the original package bill is like to be
a contest between city und country. The
house bill, by giving states absolute
power over commerce on sanitary
grounds, whereas the senate bill gave
that power over intoxicating liquors
alone, proposes a radical change in the
relative functions of federal and state
powers concerning commerce.
The House lllll Too Comprehensive.
As Adams of Chicago points out in his
minority report against the bill, this pro
posed law gives authority to the states to
exclude from their makets dressed beef,
oleomargarine, acid vinegar, cotton seed
oil and many other articles of commerce.
All these interests are likely to take a
hand in the conflict. A majority of the
Democrats are opposed to the bill, and
probably a majority of the Republicans
are in favor of it. Among the many Re
publicans who will oppose the measure
is Adams of Chicago, who is preparing
an exhaustive speech on the subject.
The "Big Four" Not Worried.
Springer would like to make a speech
against the bill, but the condition of bis
health is such that he is not likely to be in
his seat for three or four weeks. Many of
the members, both Republicans and Dem
ocrats, fancy they are compelled to sup
port the bill out of deference to their tem
perance constituents. The inactivity of
the Chicago dressed beef men in this emer-.
gency is believed to be based upon their
confidence in their abilty to establish the
unconstitutionality of -the law in the
SENATORS ON THE SILVER BILL.
Points Made in the Ilebate for and Against
Washington Citt, July 9. The confer
ence report on the silver bill was attacked
In the senate yesterday by Vest and Coke.
Vest declared that the bill did away with
the idea of free coinage and was a back
down on the part of the senate. The busi
ness of the country, he said, was Btill to
be conducted on the gold basis, and the
bill would not increase the price of silver.
Coke agreed with Vest. He opposed the
purchase of a. single ounce of silver that
was not'to be coined. Both declared their
intention to vote against the bill
Teller Presents Some Flgnrea.
Teller, in reply to Vest and Coke, said
he had made a calculation as to the in
crease of currency that would take place
under the conference bilL The purchase
of 4,!W0,0ii! ounces of silver at Monday's
price f l.o per ounce would require the
issue of H,70,000 in treasury notes. At
81.05 per ounce the amount of treasury
notes to be issued would be 84,725,000 per
month; at 81.10, 84.950.000; at 81.20. 85.400.-
000; and at par, 85,814,000 per month, or
about 870,000,000 a year.
Stewart said that if the conference bill
were executed in good faith (as the senate
was bound to assume it would be), it would
Cockreil sum the conference bill revere"d
back to the single gold standard, and left
silver as a mere merchandise, like wheat,
tobacco, corn, or oats.
Effect ol Hot Weather on House Atten
dance The Rules Committee Defeated.
Washington Citt, July 9. The senate
yesterday took up the conference report
on the silver bilL Vest, Coke, and the
Democrats generally opposed it, while
Sherman, Teller, and Stewart defended it.
The bill was laid aside at 8 p. m., and eulo
gies were pronounced on the late S. S. Cox
by Voorhees, Hiscock, Vest, Dixon, Ev
arts, and Sherman, the latter at times be
ing so affected that he was forced to pause
until lie regained control of his feelings.
When the speaking had been concluded,
the senate adjourned as a further mark of

Be Wants The Record to State All the
Facta In the Case.
Washington Citt, July 9. Cummings
of New York rose to a question of per
sonal privilege In the house yesterday.and
quoted from the speech made by him on
the national election bill some allusions to
John L Davenport. He then read a let
be bud received from that gentleman
Btating that he saw in The Record that
Crisp had inserted in his speech an in
famous attack upon him (Davenport),
copied from The Comma rcial Advertiser.
Subsequently that paper had made a re
traction and he thought it but just that
this retraction (which Is quoted) should
go on the record of the bouse. He there
tore had requested Cummings to read the
Crisp Pleada Ignorance.
Crisp said t hat he did not know Daven
port, and had merely cut the extract from
the paper and Inserted it in his remarks
because he had not had time to read it.
If he had known that a retraction bad
been made, he certainly would not have
used the article.

Public opinion has condemned Sir Ed

whelmingly favorable to him in its esti
mate of his conduct Monday. On all sides
his course Is applauded, and nobody ques
tions its necessity. The police were placed
at a decided disadvantage, as regards just
ification, in attempting to strike upon the
short notice they gave of their intention,
since every member of the force is bound
by an agreement to give two months' no
tice of his purpose of abandoning the
The Young Men Were the Leaders.
The agitators of the strike were mainly
novices, who had everything to gain and
little to lose. The veterans of the force
hesitated to sacrifice the benefits and ad
vantages of their past long service by fol
lowing the lead of their hot-headed juniors,
and their hesitancy in the future will cer
tainly be greater. It is unquestionably to
the coolness and better judgment of the
older men in the service that the failure of
the strike is due. These men had never
committed themselves to an out and ont
strike, and ' their reluctance to take the
step infltmiced many of their colleagues
who otherwise would have responded to
the call for a general outbreak. 1
Meetlnga of the Discontented.
Several meetings of policemen were
held yesterday, the chief feature of
which was the general disposition
displayed by the men to quarrel
among themselves. It is quite evident
that what little of the spirit of organisa
tion their movement possessed has en
tirely disappeared and the entire force is
at sixes and sevens. The ringleaders are
blaming one another for the failure of the
attempted strike and the younger men are
berating their elders for not supporting
them at the critical time. The men on
duty are restless and sullen. It is true
they are to all outward appearances obey
ing orders with their customary prompt
ness, but the discipline of the force has
been seriously shaken and their work is

Malartoa of the folic.
The police are not without sympathizers
in parliament in their efforts to better
their condition. Pickersgill, member for

of hours that a lxmdon policeman is on
duty, would receive more pay than manv
of the roustables. The metropolitan do-
lice receive from 24 to .10 shillings (86 to $7)

3 shillings more than the metropolitan.

Prince Bismarck expressed his pleasure

other side of the Atlantic. Formerly one
was a Saxon, another was a Prussian, and
another was a Hessian; but now .each
called himself a German. The marksmen
might, as German pioneers, further con

prosperity of the corporation, and, by
mutual co operation, Increasing both the
efficiency of the service rendered to the
public and the profits of the proprietors,
we have had under consideration the adop
tion of apian somewhat as follows: The
company ha no stock for sale, but it pro
poses to assist any of its officers or em
ployes to buy one share at a time at the fair
market price, to be fixed when the pur
chase is made, the purchaser to pay for his
shares in sums of $5 or multiples thereof.
The Company Take All the Risk.
"On the sums so paid interest is to be
credited at the rate of 4 per cent., and
when the sum at the credit of any pur
chaser amounts to the sum at which the
stock was bought he shall receive a certi
ficate for his share of stock, and can then,
if he wishes, begin the purchase of another
share. The purchaser may, however at
any time, have his contract canceled and
his money returned to him with interest,
and shall so receive it whenever he leaves
the service. Thus the company assumes
the entire risk of a fall in the price of the
snares and the expense of doing the

the experience of the company being that
the men prefer to handle these matters

when properly presented, will induce
greater thrift among the men, and,
through their example, spread among the

"When the Illinois Central railroad was
built it was necessary to go abroad to se
cure the requisite capital. The venture
proving successful, it came about that
when 1 entered the company's service in
1H71, something like four-fifths of the then
capital stock ($35,500,000) was owmd
abroad, not over fo.OOO.OOO, all told, being
held in this country. Nearly all of the bonds
then outstanding were also owned in Great
Britain and in Holland. Finding that the
corporation was regarded as an alien and
suffered thereby, it has been my aim for
many years past to induce small investors
in this country to buy and hold the shares.
Increase of American Holders.
"To-day there are eight times as manv
stockholders in the United States as there
were twenty years ago. and while a ma

When, however, she bought a large tract
of land near Forest Park boulevard, in
this city, and began to build on it they be-
same alarmed at the thought of losing the

negotiate, saying lacouically: "I am go
