Denver, July 17. "I have decided to
go to the silver meeting in Chicago
to show those gold bugs that there are
delegates from Colorado whom they can
not monkey with," said Governor 'Waite.
"Dave Moffat says t he people of the state
do not indorse me and my sentiments as
uttered in my speech the ot her day. There
is my speech and 1 offer it as my reply; I
don't pretend to speak for the bankers. If
they can find anything encouraging to
Colorado in the pre-ent condition they are
welcome to it. I have not one particle of
confidence in the bankers anyway: they

"Ofcouiethe national bank interests
are against us. What do they care if
the mining towns are mined and thou
sands are driven from their homes to
starve or suffer until they can find work
somewhere else? Those eastern people are
afraid their old parties are in danger. Doth
the parties are afraid of the Populists.
That is why they set up this cry of
treason. I can tell them who the traitors
to American liberties are. They are
the two old parties, both of them con

A man who signs himself "One of Gen

from all over the I'nion indorsing his
sentiment. One prominent banker said he
favors a ratio of twenty to otie and the
coinage of the American product only.
Business firms are doing everything to
tide over tiie crisis. The hotel failures
were due to an attempt to do too treat a
business on too little capital. Inflated
values and the use of credit is the general
cause of western failures now.
BLANTON DUNCAN'S REMARKS-
He Itelieves the Silver Men Will Control
New Yokk, July 17. Colonel B!anton
Duncan, w ho, though still a citizen of Ken
tucky, has for six or seven years spent
much time in California, is throwing him
s?lfwth alibis energy into the fight in
favor of silver. A reporter found him and
Senator Jones, of Nevada, at the New York
club. Colonel Duncan, when asked about
the outlook for silver, expressed the fullest
confidence that the silver men and the
Democrats in the senate would control en
tirely all action upon the financial ques
tions. -The senate," he went on, "has already
forty-five pronounced advocate of t he repeal
of the Sherman law only with conditions
of relief. This includes Senator Chandler,
iwid the senator from California will make
forty-six. The list is as follows, several
senators not being in it who are expected
to bring the total to fifty-one: Allen of
Nebraska, Bate, Beckwith, Berry, BlacK
buip, Caffery, Call, Car, Chandler Cock
relT, Coke, Dauiel, Dubois, George, Gor
don, Harris, Hansbrough, Hill, Hnnton,
Irby, Jones of Alabama, Jones of Nevada,
Kyle, Lindsay, Manton, Mitchell of Ore
gon, Morgan, Pasco, Peffer, Pettigrew,
Power, Pugh, Qua-, Roach, Shoup, Stew
art, Teller, Turpie, Vance, Voorhees, Vest,
Walt ham. White of California, Wolcott.
"The silver men do not propose to de
mand action only in regard to silver, but
to join hands with Democrats who will in
sist upon obedience to the mandate of the
Chicago platform. Whether the relief
may come from free coinage or the issue of
Uteenbacks, or botn, it will be perfectly
satisfactory to them. The rejieal of the
tax on state banks tun be made of great
lienefit, after proper safeguards have been
enacted to prevent any instability, and
mAking them as safe ns national banks."
HENRY CLEWS GIVES ADVICE.
He Writes it letter to Eckels llegarding
the utionul Hunks.
Washington, July 17. Comptroller Eck
els has received the following lei ter from
Henry Clews, the well-known banker,
dated New York, July 14.
-I)KAIi SlK: The national bank act cer
tainly should 1 nmehded to provide for
notes being issued up to the par value of
United States bonds, an J another amend
ment would also be. wise to provide for an
issue of notes against the surplus capital
of the national banks to the extent of 75
per cent, thereof. These two changes in
the law would make an increase in the na
tional currency amounting to aliout tl.V),
OOO.ono, and would provide the nation with
enough moDey for its needs, and it would
be the best and most legitimate kind be!
"The New York banks now have a sur
plus over capital of 70,0OO,0UO. The nation
al bunks of other cities and elsewhere have
prolwbly riOO.OOO.OOO.iu addition. This
backing in cash or its equivalent to the
notes issued against the same would make
them the strongest aud most legitimate
character of money in circulation. No
stronger kind of money could be devised.
The surplus against which the issue of
these notes would be made would be under
the national bank examiners The con
stant increase in the surplus of the banks
would also give an elastic character to
such -money, which is a very desirable

COMET DEVELOPS A TAIL,
And reople Think the Aurora Hnrealln
Haft Opened I p.
Washixgt )X, July 17. At 10:30 p. m.
Saturday the comet which is now the ob
ject of so much search and speculation
suddenly developed an enormous tail,
which to the unpracticed eye s taken to
be a display ti the aurora bOrealis. At
that hour Professor Frisby, of the naval
observatory, was studying the comrt
through the nine-inch glass. He noticed
a long streak of greenish-white light shoot
out from the comet and extend itself al
most to the zenith. At first, the nucleus
of the comet being at that moment hidden
by a fleecy cl ud, it. was thought that the
aurora borea is had sent out an advance
notice of a brilliant engagement, bu't as
there was no flickering, nd as the light
came steadily from w here the comet had
last lxen seen the professor concluded that
he was seeint a comet in process ot devi l
The tail of the comet was thirty degree
in length, a t istance about sixty times as
long as the moon is wide, and extended
from ten deg -ees alove the horizon almost
to the zenith. It was plainly visible to
the naked eye, and was watched for some
time by the corps of observers at the in
stitution. Professor Frisby said: "Th'.-re
is no way to -xplaintho sudden freak of
the comet. They are cnatic Imdics at
best ami the only thing to say is that this
one had read ed a st,i;e where it was ready

j WAS ALLEN BUTLER LYNCHED?
A Question That Is Intereitint- the People
of an Illinois County,
j VlXCENNEs, Ind., July 17. Lawrence
tuuiuj . in., is -i 111 cxciieu overt ue neat n ol
Allen Butler, who at first was supposed to
have been lynched. It is now lvclieved to
la case of sticide and that Butler was
led to self-destruction by remorse over the
deed with wh ch he was charged. Allen
Butler was o:i'- of the most prominent and
heretofore retpected colored citizens of
Lawrence county. He and his sou William
were anvsted for procuring mi ojicraUon
upon the per.-on of Ida Eikins. a young
white girl ivit yet 15 years old.
The time fo- preliminary examination
was set. but the old man, who has for
twenty-five yej.rs lieen looked upon as a
model man in whom cveryliody had con
findence, could not face the law, and about
daylight went out near his barn and tak
ing some bin ling twine made a lope,
throwing one end over a limb of a cotton
wood tree and hanged himself. The Eikins
girl had lieen 1 ving in his family for three
years. Butler confessed to S. C. Lewis, an
attorney, that he was guilty as charged;
also that he ha 1 been having intercourse
with the girl for a year past.
There is still a feeling, however, in Law
rence county that Allen Butler was
lynched after a confession iiad been forced
from him by the mob. Many distielicvc
the suicide s.tory, and declare t hat it was
tuaZ; tXitmt . c. . the disgrace of a
lynching. But ler was a farmer, a doctor
a preacher, a.;d was very wealthy.
THE YOUNG BAPTISTS ADJOURN.

lNIlANAI'Ol.is. July 17. The convention
of Baptist young people put in the time in
discussion of n issionary topics and a sym
posium upon tl e lesser federations of tiie
union. Thirty state and provincial ral
lies were held ia various parts of the city
where matters pertaining to the state fed
erations were discussed. The Ixiard of
I managers announced that Toronto had
I been chosen as the place for next year's
j convention. The board also announced
i that it had chosen Rev. ". L. Wilkins to
I succeed himself as general secretary.
( The convenlii n has adjourned, the fina'.
meetings tieing.iii afternoon gathering and
a night session. A resolution was udopted
declaring that tiie saloons are an aggrega
tion of the mi st stupendous enemies to
civil and religious liberty, the Christian
"Sabbath." unc our republican institu
tions, and that t he only remedy was entire
annihilation of i he traffic.
Another reso tit ion expressed profound
gratitude to God and recognized His over
ruling hand in t losing the World's fair on
Sunday. The tempt at open gates had
been met by ihe strong protest of the
American cons ience. The privilege of
secularizing Su iday hail leen offered the
people and they had scorned it and the re
sult was hailed as a declaration of un
faltering purpose to preserve tho "Ameri

Washington, July 17. Governor Jones,
of the Choctaw n ition, has written a letter
to the interior di-partment regarding the
request of the t ational government that
the execution of nine men for murder in
the nation be postponed in order that the
United States nay see if everything is
right. The lettei is a gentle hint that it is
none of the busin jss of the United States,
as the nation is entitled to home rule by
treaty, but to sh w "Uncle Sam that he is

DEATH AT A PICNIC
A Pyrotechnic Bomb Explodes,
Killing Two Men.
HALF OP ONES HEAD BLOWN OFF
Three Other Men Seriously Wounded An
Italian Picnic the Scene of the Disaster
and Many Carry Away Reminders of the
Orcwion Probalily a Fatal Mishap to a
Feminine Snake-Charnier Kitten on the
Head by a Rattler.
Chicago, July 17. The premature ex
plosion of a fireworks bomb at an Italian
picnic in progress at Fifty-ninth street and
Ashland avenue killed two persons and
seriously wounded three. The dead are:
Richard Marshal aud Michael Snow. The
seriously injured are Andrew Jouino, An
tone Nasho and Tony Ladout. The bomb
that caused the disaster was one that is
fired from an extemporized mortar. It is
intend ;d to be exploded high in the air
and to be accompanied by a shower of
Scattered Wounds All Around.
Just as the charge was about to lie fired
there was a premature explosion. The
liquid fire and burning explosives, together
with the pieces of the mortar containing
the bomb, were hurled with cannon-like
effect in every direction. No lights were
at first to be had and the dead and wound
ed lay together beneath the feet of those
who were able to escape. Quite a number
were hurt more or less severely, but the
above are the only cases that were seriously
injured, and they were in charge of the
Part of Sno'i Head l'.lown Oft".
In the darkness and amid the cries of the
injured and the rumors that scores had
been blown to pieces by the bursting mor
tar the scene was most pitiful, and even
the strongest and most courageous only
thought of flight. For a time the cries of
the injured and wounded were almost nn
thought of, and their despairing appeals
for help only added to the friht. Snow
and Marshall, who were instantly killed,
were horribly mangled by the flying iron
missiles. The former had the upper por
tion of his head completely blown off, and
the latter was cut and torn almost beyond
BITTEN BY A RATTLESNAKE.
A Pretty Snake Charmer Who Will I"roba
bly Die of the Wound.
New Yor.K, July 17. Dot Ponwell, the
pretty snake charmer who has lately been
performing at Huber's museum on East
Fourteenth street, will nrohnble din from
the bite of a five-foot rattlesnaKe, which
she received on the stage of that place of
I . mi il.,.. ."a
uuiusruieui. Awe woman was uuien on
the head behind the left ear and the poi
son which the venomous reptile instilled
into her. system had so speedy an effect
that her life was despaired of within two
hours, although every effort was made to
destroy its effect. At St. .Vincent's hospi
tal, whither she was taken, the doctors
pronounced the case almost hopeless.
About three weeks ago Mrs. Son well.
Who is but 22 years old, was bitten on the
arm by one of the snakes which she was
handling before the audience, but by the
prompt use of w hisky and bandages her
life was saved, and it was ut her first ap
pearance since tins experience that she re
ceived this secoud wound. She had been
out of the hospital for only a few days,
and looked jiale and weak. Fifteen min
utes liefore the time for her to go on r-he
took her tox of reptiles out. Among them
were three diamond-back rattlers that had
just been sent to her from Florida. She
saw them then for the first time, and pro
ceeded to pick them up. One of them, a
Mg hve-ltot specimen, she held aloft. -
As she held the snaka above her the rep
tile suddenly turned its head toward her.
In an instant she dropped it in the box and
appeared dazed. She had been bitten, the
snake having struck her behind the left
ear with its fangs. Superintendent Jansen
6aw what had happened in a moment and
ran to her aid. One of the actors connected
with the museum tried to suck the blood
from the wound, but could not get at the
wound, which was under the hair. In her
previous exiierience two Bolivian Indians
had drawn out the venom with their
mouths. Whisky was administered to her
in large quantities, but t he poison worked
rapidly and she fell twice in a swoon. A
carriage was called and she was sent to
her home, u Washington square. South
There Dr. G. M. Baker, 143 West Fourth
street, was summoned. He could do but
little for her. for her head, face, and neck
began to swell. She was then taken to the
hospital. At that time she whs c razy wit h
clelinum, aud she soon became insensible.
The doctors thought she would die from
the effects of the poison. Her head,
face aud neck were swoileu to a great ex
tent, even her eyes being closed. Mrs.
Sonwell, whose maiden name was Mar.
guerite Smith, wns married several years
ago to John Sonwell, also a snake charmer.
She has four children, the eldest being four

CAULYLE, III., July 17. At Sandoval,
thirteen miles east of here, owing to the
scarcity of labor, two strange negroes were
engaged by some carpenters to help finish
a house. Negroes are not allowed to live
in that place, consequently a party of
seventy-live waited upon them, threaten
ing to lynch them if they did not move at
once. Things were finally compromised,
the men agreeing to leave town as soon as
the building is finished.
Father ami Son Sink Together.
Detroit, July 17. A drowning accident
occurred at the north end of Bello Isle
which resulted in the death of John Vick,
aged 40, and his son Walter, aged 30.
Young Vick got beyond his depth, and be

when his father plunged in to rescue him.
The latter reached him just as he was go

lather around the arms, rendering him
helpless and both were drowned.

Public lMnners Are Too Serious.
Dinners are much too serious, particu
larly for the Bpeakers. In Boston, in
the week ending March 18, two men
dropped dead at public dinners. One
of the feasts thus visited was a Tam
many club dinner on St. Patrick's day,
and the fatal visitation did not come
until 4 o'clock in tho morning. That
cade may have been simply one of ex
hausted nature, but about tho other
there was something almost suggestive
of a judgment, for it liappened at the
annual supper of a Women's Christian
Temperance union, and tho brother who
fell was a Presbyterian clergyman who
had just arisen to respond to tho toast,
