Representative Bailey, of Texas,
favors Senator White, of California, as
the Democratic nominee for President
next year. Senator White may be a
very able man; but hardly one man In a
thousand on this side of the Rockies has
ever heard of that gentleman.
According to the report of United
Slates Consul Stephens at Annaberg
over fifty-two thousand acres of ?round
were cultivated in tobacco in Germany
this year. No statistics of the quantity
smoked this year in the Fatherland are
avallablo just now, but in view of the
prevalence of tho habit it is quite cor
taln that the quantity raised will not
b.gin to 6uppiy the home demand.
SOUTHERN Republicans aro howling
mad at tho pooling of interests on the
part of representatives from Pennsyl?
vania, New York, Missouri and Ohio,
which results in the capture by them of
the four good offices of the House of
Representatives. The shutting out of
Tipton, of Tennessee, for postmaster,
and giving the place to MoBlroy, of
Ohio, will, it is said, work serious harm
to the chances of McKinley for the Pres?
idential nomination, so far as the votes
of the Southern delegates to tbe national
Republican convention next year aro
LORD SALISltURY'd PROPOSITION
Washington dispatches say that Lord
Salisbury, tho British premier, is will?
ing to do what the United States ad?
vises In regard to the sottlemont of the
Venezuelan boundary dispute, provided
this country will enter into an offensive
and defensive alliance with Great
Britain. What view President Cleveland
may take of thep ropos.il in his message
to Congress can only be conjectured, and
while Washington's advice, that we
avoid entangling foreign alliances, was
excellent at the time it was given it
must not be forgotten that many changes
have taken place since tbe farewell ad?
dress of the Father of his Country was
Then the United States, as a nation,
was iL ita infancy, and for the first one
hundred years tho people had all they
could attend to in developing tho mag?
nificent resources of their count ry.
Now, however, the conditions aro
changed. The United States is one of
the greatest powers of the earth, with
growing interests in all parts of tho
world, and, unless tho people wish the
energy and enterprise already displayed
in the building up of a foreign trade to
go for naught, it is about time ttat the
proper steps were takon to guard and
foster those interests.
With England wo have many things
in common. We speak the same lan?
guage and are of the Anglo-Saxon race,
with the same love for liberty, In tho
development and spread ot which both
countries are working constantly,
though on Gomowhat different lines.
The white people of bo h nations havo
the same religion, and aro alike imbut d
with that missionary spirit which Is
carrying tho banner of Christ into every
land. In tho protection of those mis?
sionaries great good can bo done by a
oordial and active co operation, and on
this Uno, as well as for tho extension of
their trade with China and tho East,
an alliance offensive and defensive be?
tween the United States and England
might do very much toward advancing
the causa of Christianity and promoting
the interests of trade and commerce.
Great Britain, so the dispatches re?
port, is willing for the United States to
acquire Cuba and dominate the seas and
I continents of America, only, as a return
for these favors, asking that this nation
assist her In carrying out the aspira?
tions ot her people In tho East, and in
other portions of tho world. How far
such a combination will be expected to
extend is not known, but be its scope
great or small, euoh an alliance, if ac?
tually proposed, will meet with much
opposition in both countries, because of
the jealousies and prejudices existing,
and, although the effort may fail now,
such a union is almost sure to be brought
The destiny of the Anglo-Saxon race
is to carry Christianity to all the world,
and as an important branch of that great
family tbe people of the United States
must and will perform thoir share of the
work. "Blood is thicker than water."
Time will soften and subdue the strong?
est prejudices, and, with the ties of lan?
guage, a common ancestry and similar
institutions, no power on earth can keep
In abeyance aspirations and sympathies
which belong to all tho race. Hence, if
in the courso of time cither England or
tho United States should become in?
volved in a death grapple with a nation
alien In blocd and language, it will be
strange indeed if tho natural instincts
of the race do not force tho country not
ongaged to come to the assistance of
the one in trcubio.
"tho Tornado" at tho Academy of filuslo
Three years ago, Line >ln J. Cancer,
then a "ponniless actor" was given a
weok at Havlin's for tho trial ot a play
so original in its effects and manuscript
as to excite gravo doubt-, as to Its suc?
cess- Tbe piece was tbe first of those
Innumerable railroad dramas which are
now switching about the country, and it,
"Tbe Fast Mail," has since made its
young author and manager, an enviable
reputation and a mint of money.
"The Tornado," his latest pconic mel?
odrama is a decided "go" with large
Every act of tho "Tornado" contains
some striking and novel scenic effects,
which, In originality and perfection of
detail, have never bsen surpassed.
About all this is written tho most
spirited dialogue imaginable. Comedy
and pathos via with one another for
supremacy. The vulgar and horrible,
often found in such plays, aro dis?
placed by hearty humor and thrilling
incidents. Even the dissecting-room
scene happily disappoints, for instead
of gratifying morbid curiosity, it proves
to be one of the most beautiful and
intense scenes ever witnessed.?Figaro,

Holmes Befased a Hew Trial i?y Judge Ar?
Philadelphia, Pa., Nov. 30.?Judge
Arnold to-day refused to grant a new
trial to H. H. Holmes, who was con?
victed of murder of B. F. Pietzel, in this
city September 2, 1804, and sentenced
bim to deatb. Promptly at 10 o'clock
Holmes, acoompanled by bis counsol,
came into court. He looked careworn,
but Beamed to have that air of confidence
wbich has clung to him throughout the
trying ordeal. Court opened with a
brief tilt between Judge Arnold and
Lawyer Rotan. counsel for the defend?
ant. Judge Arnold oharged that Mr.
Rotan had oifored an insult ta the oourt
by submitting briefs to the president
Judge Wilson said Holmes' counaol
had argued for a new trial, but neglected
to send him a copy. Mr. Rotan Baid
that tbo papers had been proparod hur?
riedly and if the iudge had been over?
looked it was a mistake. He said: "I
do not want permission to go forth it I
have done wrong. There was no disro
spect intended wben I sent the briefs to
Judges Thayer and Wilson and as a
member of this b.?r you should bavo
more confidence in ire " Judge Arnold
made no further comment, but pro?
ceeded with reading tbe answer to
The main reasons for a new trial,
which were put forth by tbe defendant's
counsel, were tbe admlsalon of tbo
testimony of Miss Yoke, wbom Holms
claimed as bis lawful wife; the district
attorney's opening speech to the jury
when he brought tho murder of the
children Into the oase, and Mrs. Piet
zel'a testimony, in which she said the
last time she saw her children was in
the morgue at Toronto
In reference to Miss Yoke's eligibility
as a witness the judge said that as
Holmes wan no. only married to the
Wllllmeet, Ilia., woman, Mi9S Yoke, but
be also had a wife In Oilman, N. II.,
therefore the marriage to Mls9 Yoke
was null and void and tbe evidence was
admissible. Ho closed by Baying that
tho court approves the verdict and re?
fuses a new trial. District Attorney
Uraham asked that sentence bo pro?
HolmeB was ordered to stand up.
Judgo Arnold said: "Herman W.
Mudgotts, havo you anything to say?"
Holmes replied, in a barely audible
voice: "I have nothing to say."
Judge Arnold then pronounced tho
doath sentence, as follows: "It is the
sentence of this court that you be
taken henco from whence you came,
and there be hanged by the neck until
you are dead. May God have mercy
on your Boul."
The expression of Holmes' face re?
mained the Bame. He was taken from
the court to prison. Governor Haetlngs
will fix the day of Holmes' execution
An appeal to tbe supremo court will bo
taken at once.

We've a Successful
Every few days an acquaintance says to ns : " Why, I thought you took measures for clothes and had some Northern tailor make them up
for you?" This Is a mistake, and it is just here that we claim a big advantage over all clothing made out of town. We have our own tailors in
the rear of our own store. Every garment is made right here ; every ccat is fitted on a customer twice before it is made up. We won't make a
coat for any man, under any circumstances, unlesB we can fit the coat to his figure before it is completed. That's why we've always turned out
good fitting garments; that's why we've been so successful and that's why we're going to keep on being successful.
We keep a beautiful line of Woolens in stock?the choicest pickings from the choicest importing houses. Our garment-makers are artists
in their particular line. They are men who have learned their trade in the finest merchant-tailoring establishments in this country. Is there
any good reason why we shouldn't make stylish clothes ?
We make Suits from $20 up. There's nothing too fine for ns.
We're particularly strong in FULL DRESS SUITS. We've never failed in a perfect-fitting Full Dres3 Suit yet, and our price is about
one-third less than you've been paying.
EVERY GARMENT THAT WE MAKE IS KEPT PRESSED AND REPAIRED, FREE OF CHARGE, AS LONG AS IT
LASTS. This means a saving of from $5 to $10 in the life of every suit. We always want our customers to look like fashion plates.
If you are interested in wearing good clothes-?clothes that are up-to-date and well-fittiog, and cost less than you've been paying?visit us.
