tion oi sucn papers to Mr. Cable now
will have about as much effect as it
did three years ago.
Read again the declaration of the
national democratic platform of 1893:
We denounce the rebublican leg
islation known as the Sherman act
of 1890 as a cowardly makeshift,
fraught with possibilitfes of dauber
in the future, which should make
all of its supporters, as well as its
author anxious for its speedv re
peal."' Begin the repeal by suspen
pending the purchase clause without
debate. Don't waste an hour in de
fending its existence.
Commissioner of Pensions Loch
kn has ruled that where soldiers
who are pensioned under the act of
June 27, 1890, are 75 years of age
their pensions shall not ie disturbed
even by suspension. He has said
also that w hen the suspended pen
sioners prove disability they will not
be called on for further proof subse
quently. Judge Lochren is dealing
with the pensioners in, a business
way. Cut off the frauds. Pay pen
sions td none but to those deserving
and actually needing them.
Congressman Marsli has gone to
Washington without making that
promised visit to his constituency in
this neck o' the woods. He writes
an apologetic letter to some friends
before departing, acknowledging the
neglect and hopes to be able to get
around before the regular session,
the time of the assembling of which
may be known to Marsh, though no
one else in the country possesses that
advantageous knowledge. Before
Congressman Cable went to Wash
ington to assume his duties, he made
a tour of the entire district, ac
quainting himself with the wishes
and needs of his constituents, and
then he devoted himself to carrying
them out. With Marsh it is differ
ent. He consider the people fortu
nate in having him for congressman.
They have honored themselves, not
him, in electing him, 'and that he
should go to Washington and occupy
a neat in common with other con
gressmen ought to bean all sufficient
condescension on his part.
The IIoUHf Organization.
The outcome of the democratic
caucus of the national house of rep
resentatives at Washington Saturday
night was decidedly a triumph for
Illinois. Mr. Crisp, of Georgia, was
renominated fsir speaker by acclama
tion; Mr. Kerr, of Pennsylvania, for
clerk; Mr. Dalton, of Indiana, for
postmaster, and Mr. Hunt, of Ten
nessee, for door-keeper. The princi
pal interest of the caucus centered on
the contest for sergeant-at-arms, and
in the outcome of which the influ
ence of National Committeemen
Cable was fully shown. General
Black, who had been selected by the
Illinois delegation, made the nomi
nating speech. It was brief, but it
eloquently told of Mr. Snow's good
qualities and splendid qualifications
for the office. Mr. Lay ton, of Ohio,
placed Yoder in nomination, and
then Tom Johnson, of Ohio, arose
and seconded the nomination of the
Illinois candidate. He explained
that, although an Ohio member, he
was opposed to Yoder's election, and
that other members of the delegation
shared his sentiments. Mr. Outh
waite, of Ohio, followed in a some
what lengthy speech, du'ing which
he scored Yoder unmercifully.
Johnson, the other Ohio man who
was a candidate, had retired from
the race, and Snow and Yoder had
the contest to themselves. As the
light went on in the caucus, Yoder
was1 busy in the lobbies and occasion
ally retired to his headquarters in
the sergeant-at-arms' room for con
sultation. Mr. Snow calmly sat in
the room of the committee on naval
affairs surrounded by a few of his
Illinois friends, and although fre.
qucnt rumors of his success came
out while the vote proceeded he per
mitted no congratulations. "Wait
till we are out of the woods," he
said, "aid then we can hollow."
There was considerable confusion
as the vte was announced showing
the varying successes of the candi
dates, but the result gave 96 for Snow
to 95 for Yoder. The outcome shows
that Illinois is getting to jhe front
and becoming recognized as a dem
ocratic state in national politics.
Illinois 1 as broken precedent in this
respect in capturing an office that
has for s ime years gone to Ohio, but
Illinois 14 not through yet. Its de
mocracy is looking for bigger fish.
Nexttima it may have a candidate
for the presidency, and will get
The eflect of Mr. Cable's strength
in breaking the Ohio combination
and throwing the office of sergeant-
at-arms :o Illinois is shown in the
position c f Mr. Johnson who led the
opposition to Yoder and who is a
warm personal friend of Mr. Cable's.

An Intelligent Dos.
More than one story has been told of the
refusal on the part of a dog who had been
entrusted with carrying a paper to his
master to tal e the wrong one when offered
to him. but h relations have generally
been received with a degree of incredulity.
However, an English paper published in
-gypt. the fcgyptian Gazette, tells a storv
of the kind with a circumstantiality which
appears to enutle it to credence. ,
The paper sivs that one of its natrons In
Cairo regularly sent bis dog, a large and
very intelligent Russian hound, to get The
Gazette on fcs arrival from Alexandria,
The animal nlways carried a coin in his
mouth with Inch to pay for the paper.
une aay tne uog came back without the
paper and with the coin still in hi mouth.
This was good proof that the papers had
not been obtained and lost. The gentle
man went to the newsdealer's to see what
had been the l natter.
He found that the copies of the Esrvn-
tian Gazette had all been sold very soon
after their arr.val and that when the dog
came none wai left. The dealer cave the
dog a copy oi the Bosphore Egyptien, a
.t rench paper, instead, but he absolutely
refused to receive it. Therefore the dealei
gave him back the coin and sent him home.
It is net to be supposed that the doc
could distingu sh by sight between a French
paper and an English paper, or indeed be
tween any tw newspapers of similar gen
eral appearance, but' he had a method of his
own of distinguishing them by means of
the sense of sn elL

was driving al mg p. quiet lane near Ham

vegetables, sto xl in the road while he was

The princess gently remonstrated with
the man, but his only reply was oaths and
a shower of vindictive blows on the poor
beast's liack. She ordered her footman to
take the club from him, on which the cos-
termonger shouted for a policeman and in
sisted that tht footman and "the woman"
should both be arrested he for nssanltand
