The republican state convention will be held in Omaha, August
22. The McColI people had everything their own way at tho meet
ingof the central committee in Omaha last Tuesday, they wanted tho
convention in Omaha for political reasons, and with the co-operation
of influential members of the central committee they easily carried
Mr. Raymond strengthened himself greatly at the meeting. It
was quiet generally talked that at the present time the contest is

There was a very interesting article in one of the Chicago papers
last Sunday about the fads in the different cities. One of Milwau
kee's fads was said to be the "5 o'clock tea.' It was said that tea
had swamped beer and that the men were giving beer up bravely.
That sounds very good and "Sunday-Bchoolish," doesn't it? I
wonder if they know what is mixed with the tea at a fashionable "5
o'clock?" Tea sounds very innocent and so doesjthe fact of the men
going to drink tea at a young lady's house; but when you walk up
to the table where tho tea is served the lady presiding there says:
"Will you have your tea plain or with rum (or brandy?' whichever
is served.) It isn't such a very innocent pastime after all, is it?
How many men would say "Plain, if you please?" Very few, I ray,
and how many men would give up beer when they get rum and
brandy or any of tho more expensivo drinks? You can get a glass
of beer for 5 cents, but you have to pay a good deal more for the
same quantity of rum. So when a man can go to a "tea" and have
as much rum. as he-wante (even if it is mixed with tea it's there just
the same) and doesn't have to pay anything .for it and has a pretty
girl there to amuse him, do you think he would lose tho chance? I
think not. There djd.nt use to bf bo many men at an afternoon tea
as there are now and I think if the young ladies would try serving
tho tea "plain," as thoy used to, they would find out why. As
Delia Fox rang in "Panjandrum,' "Try Just Once and See."
It has been an open secret for weoks that Lillian Russell and her
latest husband wcro not radiantly happy together, and tho news of
their separation is no surpriso whatever. Indeed Miss Russell and
Perugini were the only two persons in the world who believed before
the marriaso ceremony was performed in the possibility of their
having a joyful married life. Tho end has como a Iittlo sooner than
was expected, perhaps about six months sooner. In tho natural
order of things, however, it might have been expected within a week
after iho marriage. Miss Russell's moods are changed by electricity.
It would bo profitless to moralize over a matter of this kind.
Miss Russell is a unique personage with a marital code of her own.
She docs not take marriage seriously, it would appear, regarding it
more as a pastime, as other people regard tennis or dancing. If she
lived long enough she might get married six or seven hundred times,
without impairing her health or her good spirits. But in the ordin
ary course of things, allowing four months to each season of wedlock
and a vacation of equal time, she could hardly work in more than
fifteen trips to tho alter before her charms begin to fade. As for
Signor Perugtni, ho does not havo my sympathy now so much as he
had a Iittlo while ago. I congratulato himrsays "TheSaunterer" in
The disorderly and mischievous associations and" combinations of
evil-minded men and their dupes, havo succeeded' in making a mock
ery of our government, in large measures; and the peoplo have, in
great extent, sustained them by misplaced sympathy. The great
evil of violent interference with the unlawful interruption of exten
sive business operations, have not been met with the heroic meas
ures of repression by the government necessary to reasonable and
just restraint. Ill-timed and unmerited sympathy, by our peoplo
largely, has only emboldened and promoted lawlessness until even
the authority of our courts has been repeatedly continued with open
defiance and most intemperate denunciation; and yet this work of
mischief is tolerated and encouraged. The abuse and vilification of
some of our judges who have issued restraining orders for tho pro
tection of the property and business of railway companies, should
not be countenanced nor tolerated. Those who are within the scope
of such orders have no rights involved in their enforcement, and are
not deserving of any sympathy whatever.
