It is hard to see what there is remarks
able in this. Could the state auditor have
done any less than to acknowledge the
receipt of the letter? Union.
Noth ng hard to see about that. The
point of interest is not that the state
auditor should have replied and that the
letter should have been received in Rock

markable thing about it is that McEniry

Scarcely lees foolish is the practice of thoe who
flytOTioent phyncing for costiveaeas. They
dove themselves violently weaken their bowels by
so doing and disable them from acting regularly
so that, verily, the last condition of such people
is worse than the first. Hostetter's Stomach Bit
ters is the safe and effective substitute for such
vast expedients, for it is by no means expedient
to use tt em. What is needed is a gentle bu
thorough laxative, which not only insures action
of the be wels without pain or weakening effecU,
which al o promotes a healthy secretion and flow
of bile i-itu its proper channel. Dyspepsia, de

Reciprocity aotl Free Silver No Remedy.
Reciprocity with the South American
states would not meet the emergency, as
these states were largely engaged in agri
culture and did not need the products of
the farms of their northern neighbors. If
reciprocity were a good thiug it should be
extendedto those countries that need the
agricultural products and the live stock
of the United States. The other great
political party proposed as a remedy for
existing ills a low tariff and free coinage
of silver. This would not meet the case.

A Billion More Money Needed.
The currency of the country needed in

tl,uoo.UOO,tiou more money provided by the
government either bv coining or setting
printing presses in motion. For the pur
pose of distributing this among the people
he would establish a government loan bu

points as necessary.
Would I'aiiinli Uclit from the Land.
All needy, debt-ridden persons should
come, and by executing notes secured by
mortgages on real estate or imperishable
personal property receive enough money
to satisfy their wants for a rate of interest
not to exceed 1 per cent, per annum. This
idea the speaker elaborated at great
length. lie was certain that if his simple
scheme was put into force debt would
soon be banished from the land, and all
the people become prosperous and happy.

Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe railway
here is spreading to other departments,
Thursday several of the blacksmiths
struck in sympathy with the boiler

other engineers take this as a cue the
Santa Fe will have serious trouble. The
boiler makers are striking for pay by the
