Amox; defeated bills of the late
legislature are the following-: The
hard roads bill; to rcpt-al the anti
sparrow act; for uniform text look:
prohibiting gambling at races; for a
western hospital for the inr-ane; giv
ing women the right to vote for
township officers; to create a state
dairy commission, and for pure food.
The resolution to memoralize con
gress to make an open channel in the
Illinois river was defeated, also reso
lutions for constitutional amend
ments and convention.
Philadelphia Times: If the money
now withdrawn from circulation by
panic-stricken people were to seek
the best investments offered. on our
markets it would end the monev
stringency in a day. There is plenty
of money, but it is entirely useless to
the business public while it is with
drawn from deposit and locked up.
Things are not going to smash just
yet, and those who have faith in the
country and people who hare the
best resources and energies of any
nation in the world will reap the
largest profits without risking a
According to statistics there is
more wheat than the world knws
what to do with. There will be car
ried into the new crop year a stock
of wheat w hich probably will exceed
300,000,000 bushels. On June 3 the
visible supply in the United States
and Canada was over 89,000,000
bushels. More than 7S,000,000 bush
els in the warehouses of grain depots
in Europe and on vessels bound for
European port. The 167.000,000
bushels thus located by the statisti
cian must be increased by an unde
termined but enormous quantity of
wheat in the hands of farmers and
country dealers in America and Eu
rope alikf-. Judging by the rate at
which the grain has lately been com
ing into market it is a fair guess that
some 125,000.000 bushels remain in
the bins of wheat growers and small
dealers in various parts of this civi
lized world. If the quantity is as
great as 133,0O0,0DO bushels, the
grand total, just when a new crop is
ripening, equals or exceeds 300,000,
000 bushels. It is not a pleasant
thing for farmers to contemplate,
but with the price of cattle and hogs,
corn is truly king. If Europe don't
want our cerals in one shape we can
convert it into something they will
take, and that at a very good figure.
De-mocrary on Silver.
While we are talking about silver
being wiped out as money, let's refer
to the democratic platform on the
subject, on which we swept the coun
try a short time ago. Here it is:
We denounce the republican legis
lation known as the Sherman act of
1890 as a cowardly makeshift, fraught
with possibilities of danger in the
future, w hich should mike all of its
supporters, as well as its author,
anxious for its speady repeal. We
hold to tho use of both gold and sil
ver without discriminating against
either metal or charge for mintage,
but the dollar unit of coinage of both
metals must be of equal intrinsic and
exchangeable value, or be adjusted
through international agreement,
or by such safeguards of legislation
as shall insure the maintenance of
the parity of the two metals, and the
equal power of every dollar at all
times in the markets, and in pay
ment of debt; and we demand that
all paper currency shall be kept at
par with and redeemable in such
coin. We insist upon this policy as
especially necessary for the protec
tion of the farmer and the laboring
classes, the first ami most defense
less victims of unstable money and a
The Great Weal.
At the great celebration of the
Fourth by the Tammany society or
Columbian order, one of the princi
pal speeches was made by Congress
man lieauchamp Clark, of Missouri,
better known in the west as Champ
Clark, who is credited with having
made the Jilt of tLe day. In the
conrse of his remarks Congressman
The central west is the great mis
sionary ground for democrats. It's
easy to make fun of chasing political
rainbows. You must know how.
When General Palmer, Ben T. Cable,
William K. Morrison. William F. Vi
las, the daddy of Peck's Bad Boy, and
Governor Boies began chasing rain
bows, somehow they got what they
went after, and some people heard
something drop. Besides a presi
dent, we western democrats want a
few other thii gs.
We want t lat "cowardly make
shift," the Sberman law, repealed,
but in its stea 1 we want the money
of democracy and the constitution,
both silver an 1 gold, and a paper
currency to b kept at par with and
redeemable in such coin. We want
the robber tar ff so broken down that
we can follow the rule of common
sense, justice and commerce sell in
the highest m irkel and buy in the
lowest. We v ant the pension list so
thoroughly purged that it shall be
come a veritable roll of honor. We
want an income tax on incomes of
ten thousand :ind over, so that ab
normal wealtl. may bear its propor
tional burden. We want true civil
service accomplished by placing onlv
democrats on guard from Martha's
Vineyard to the Aleutian islands,
and from the L,ake of the Woods to
the Dry Tortugas. We want our
great rivers a id waterway so im
proved that they will be navigable,
in fact as well as by act of congress,
thereby regul:iting"freight and pas.
We want th se utterly un-American
and un-d imocratic cancers on

roots with a s irgeon's knife, to the

Confederate Veteran TaMlng Away.
From some statistics just returned
to the governor's office by State
Treasurer Hirdeman it becomes
painfullv apparent that the old sol
diers of the confederacy and their
widows are passing fast away. Col.
Hardeman this morning sent in his
report for the money paid out for
pensions sine? the first of March. It
shows that the crippled soldiers of
Georgia have received during the
year $181,22). There is a decided
falling off in the number of old sol
diers who have been drawing $100 a
year for the loss of a limb or for total
disability. In 1883 there were 1,000
pensioners under this head, but from
Col. Harden an's figures there are
now only 77f. pensioners under this
head, showirg that nearly 300 have
died since 18s3.
Capt. W. H. Harrison, of the exec
utive office, who receives all applica
tions for pensions, stated this morn
ing that the widows of the confeder
ate soldiers were decreasing at an
alarming rat ;. Since last year 91 of
them have died, and as .quite a num
ber have not renewed their applica
tions for pensions it is presumed that
many of them are dead, Last year
there were 8:! deaths among the wid
ows, but this year there will be more
there than 100 besides three mar
riajres. An Klr.peuient In Mexico.
One eveni recently the residence
of Refaio Martinez, near Chepuite
pec cast e. M jxico, was entered and
robbed by a band of suppo-ed brig
a'w'.s. who. b -sides stealing money and
other v. iluab.es, carried off the young1
larplit.T of Martinez. Detectives
traced Ihe bandits to New Orleans and
located them in a fashionable hoteL
The criminal was Louis Salazar, a
rrorrjinent yrunir man, who was liy
inp with the abducted daughter of
Mr. Martiro. Salnzar was arrested,
and made a confession of the whole
affair. He -tates that he was the
lover of Miss Martinez, and that her
ran nts opposed his suit and forbade
her noting- him. In order to gain pos
session ttt, his sweetheart he arranged
the attack with a party of friends.
The girl ssys she was not taken
against her will. They were married
on the day following the abduction.

A North Carolina Affidavit.
The following is a true copy, of an
affidavit to obtain a warrant before a
justice of the peace in a certain county
in Western North Carolina. The
names alone are changed: John Smith

He Prayed for Them.
The Rev. Dr. I51ack, of the Barony
church, Glasgow, and another minister
once spent a vacation in Cumberland,
and on the !f abba th attended a little
Scotch kirk, sitting in a remote cor
ner, so that the minister should not
notice them. But the eagle eye of the
minister det icted them, and in the in
tercessory prayer he so expressed
himself as to make quite sure of some
aid from them. The good man's words
were these: "Lord, haye mercy on
thy ministering servants who have
popped in on us so unexpectedly; one
of them will preach in the afternoon,
