Hutchins has opened a fruit aland in the second build ing south of the Calcasieu bank, on Ryan street. Suoeesr old boy. A Chicago paper gives a late spring aud continued cold feet as a reason for the great increase in applications for marriage licenses in that city. ____ Secretary C. M. Richard, of the Hoo-Hoo Park Association, has our thanks for complimentary tickets to witness the 4tb of July celebration at the park. About thirty cars of steel rails arrived this week via the South ern Pacific road for the Kansas City, Shreveport and Gulf rail road, and were at once forwarded to the front. _ We sympathize with Mr. and Mrs. Lee Dick in the loss of tbeir little son, George Lee, at half past ten Tuesday morning. The child died of diphtheria, and was aged 2 years, 11 months and 25 days. Within the last week or so the Calcasieu Export Lumber Co. has loaded several big barges with lumber from our saw mills. These barges were towed to Sabine Pass, and the lumber put aboard of sea going vessels for foreign ports. The Jolly Social Club, composed of a large number of young ladies and gentlemen, gave an excur sion to Fenton Thursday night, at which place a dance had been ar ranged for. Quite a large number of our young folks availed them selves of the opportunity to have a jolly good time. The English government is now experimenting with a gon which will fire 1000 shots in 125 seconds, it is the deadliest of all the auto matic inan-sia.vei's ever .vet in-j vented, says the Kew York Herald, j As with all machine guns, the first j allot must be fired by hand. After ; that the weapou will absorb car tridges aud emit a chain of bullets | as long as it is fed. Experiments ! made thus far sbow that on tbe oc- ! caaiou of a brief, sharp attack, tbe ; gun can actually he made to fire eleven shots in a single second, A very interesting feature of this ! new gun is that the explosive ; power results from the use of; cordite. Tbe whole of this sub stance is expended in pressure, 1 whereas black powder is only use ful for pressure to the extent of 50 per cent. Tbe experiments with cordite and with the gun referred to show conclusively that cordite is not affected by water, as is gun powder, and will staud great varia tion in temperature. They Voted the Wroag Ticket. The Atlanta Constitution men tions tbe tact that 18,000 tailors residing in New York, are ou a strike with prospects, of tbe num ber being increased to 52,000. It says: "The cause of tbe strike may be explained ip a few words. During tbe late campaign tbe New York tailors were given to under stand that as soon as the Repub lican party came into power timea would materially improve aod wagea be increased. On tbe strength of tbaae pledges many of them were induced to vote tbe republican ticket; but iuatead of realiaieg tbe hopes wbiob they were led to entertain before tbe election, they bar« ainoe bean *a qeiredto dondditiounl week with <000 0K0ËI ft no eaUef rtwa 4 , «hff 4* - -4M st ssssth 4b* jSSSSt Mme AM tht me tSdfst\ j ! a 00 0/0000 00000 '000 i ft 01000 ^000 &h000 I .1 Last summer when the presi dential campaign was in progress, the people were told by the Re publicans and the gold press that the hard times then existing were the direct result of the agitation of the free coinage issue. "We are having a Bryan panic, 1 ' they declared, "bot it is only a fore taste of wbut you will experience if yon defeat McKinley," they asked the people to choose be tween "a Bryan panic" and Mc Kinley prosperity." The result showed that a suffi cient nnmber of voters were im pressed by declarations of this character to give the presidency to McKinley. The result also shows that the difference between ''Mc Kinley prosperity" and a "Bryan panic" are largely in favor of the latter, for business conditions of all kinds nre on a narrower and more unprofitable basis, and times are harder under the opera- j tione of "McKinley prosperity"! than they were under the "Bryan panic." We beg to call the attention of the gold press and the Republican I organs to this remarkable state of things, and to ask them for a brief explanation thereof. Times are harder, more people are ont of 1 work, prices are lower, and gen- j era! business is less profitable, now that we have "McKinley pros perity" than when we had the Bryan panic." If the present con ditions are merely the forerunners of "McKinley prosperity," the peo ple may well cry aloud in their ; despair to be saved from t he re sults of such prosperity. Mr. McKinley himself seems to take no note of the situation. It ' is true that he is keen to demand. relief for suffering Americans in Cuba, but on the awful condition of millions of men, women and children in this country he turns his back. Why should this be | so? The Constitution does not j begrudge a dollar that lias been : or is to be sent to destitute Ameri cans in Cuba, but what greater dann on the benevolence of the government have these people thau the millions of destitute men, ! women and children who are : tramping the streets of our great 1 [Cities hunting in vain for work,; begging and starving ? To these people. Mr. McKinley i says, through the Republican Con- : gress : "You waut relief and yon shall have it. You nre to be com- ; pelted to pay more for your tea. your sugar, your blankets and woolen goods, your calicoes, your shoes and your crockery. If this doesn't relieve you, you do not deserve relief." That, is wbatoMr. McKiuley is saying to the suffer ing Americans at home. Tbe re snit is that "McKinley prosperity" is a much more dreadful affair tbau tbe "Bryan panic," and threatens to sacrifice tbe welfare of all tbe taxpayers to the interest of a few monopolies and manufacturers who contributed to tbe Republi can corruption fond, Matters bave reached the point where the most iguorant voter is able to see that "McKinley pros parity," in its results and prom ises is a hundredfold worse tbau tbe "Bryan panic" tbe gold preas and Republicans discovered last year. In point of fact, tbe condition which they name "a Bryan panic" was simply tbe outcome of tbe single gold standard, whereby *11 tbe elements of productiveoess are robbed of tbeir value aud profit by dear mouey aod die honest prices. Every phase of McKiuleyisui that bas been sug gested as a remedy tbua for will ■imply add to tbe preaaure of tbe bard times, aud this will oontiuna tbe party of tbe gold syndicates— out of exiatenee, aod place in power tbe Deatoeratic party, tbe party of tbe people.
