A. aad the influence they charge it with wielding in the con duct of the city schools, the attack being ehietiy d. reeled at the present board of education. The agitation on this subject is daily becoming more conspicuous in Wyandjtie county and it promi.es to be fruitful in inieresting developments. The resolutions are as follows: Wnereas, We, citizens of the United Stales, have beeu persecuted for the last two years iu this ciiy Leyond endurance by the A. P. A.s iu every lorm and siiape, they having brought to this place the vilest lecturers male and female for that purpose; Wnereas, fhe A. I. A.'s by their hor rible oath, have ban.shed from this city all the former liarmuay, unity aud neigh borly love, setting one neighbor against the other, and making a laughing slock of the words "Curistian charity;" Whereas, This fiendish persecution has been iutlicied upon us for no wicked deed or tseasouabie act on our part, but simply and purely for the take of our religion, though so sacredly guaranteed in the great Constitution of the United States aud of this state: ereas, We, Catholic citizens, have especially and principally beeu de nounced as vandals and destroyers of our public senoois, wheu iu truih not a sin gle word or act of that nature can bo placed at our doors; but, on the contrary, we find from the records of the ooumy treasurer that we Catho lics have during the past thirty years pa.d over $2.J,Ul0 in cash to uphold and foster them; aud all this without any murmur or complaint never demanding any service or equivalent for this enor mous amount of our taxes, and uever having allo.ved, except once in thirty years, a representative ou our school board: Whereas, This" unbearable persecution so un-American is perpetuated against us, not by the: common people, but by the ollicers of the cty principally by the scnool board and its leaders (servants of the public, supported by the taxes of all;; therefore, bo it Resoived, That we claim, as citizens aad taxpayers of this city, the riglit and privilege to turn in .uJ deinmd room for ail our Catholic children (over 1,000 iu number) in spite of tbe preaeut crowded condition aud limit ed means, aud in spue of the fact that this, our right and privilege, will reduce the preseni school session to a session of live months, for all pu lic schools in the consolidated city; and be it furthermore Resolved, i hat we. Catholic citizens, having placed these facts "Openly before the public, shall looi hereafter, upon any man or woman -loctl or imported who dares to represent Catholics as ene mies aud destroyers of the public schools as an infamous iiar aud knave, too ignor ant and too vicious for any civilized Christian community; aud be it further more Resolved, That we take steps to bring the action of our present school board to the notice of the country and leave our Cause to the judgment of every just aud righteous citizen. TIIK STANDING COMMITTEE OF CATHOLIC CITIZENS. The school board, except as individuals, have as yet, not s.gnttied that they have taken cognizance of the trouble.

A Man Leaves Money to Children of Whom He fvnows lothiii. Ciiic auo, Aug. 29. The will of John llcCailery, which was probated June 14, is one of the strangest legal documents ever tiled in the probate court here. The testator was one of the directors of the Grand Trunk railway and also of the Illinois Trust and Savings bank. The testator says he was married three times, that he had live children by his first wife aud two by his second wife. Of these seven children he remembered the names of but three. The bulk of the property is left to the mysterious children, of whom nothing is known, as it was generally supposed that .Mr. McCalfery's sister and one daughter were his only immedi ate heirs. A disputed eleven-year old son of the testator by his third wife is given a legacv of $40,0j0 aud an annuity of $2,000 to further complicating mat ters. One of the missing children known as Nancy Riley is said to have been kid naped aud taken to Ireland fifty years ago. Others of the heirs are thought to be dead and frequent family quarrels and estrangements add to the muddle in which the big estate is left. ONLY A POLITICAL MOVE. The Arrest of Governor Waite So Re garded In Denver. Denver, Aug. 29. The arrest of Gov. Waite and officials of the police depart ment on a charge of detaining and open ing a letter intended for X2x-Police Mat ron Tikens, has not caused much excite ment, being generally regarded as a mere pol itical move. Populists who are working to prevent the renominatiou of Waite declare that Republicans who desire to have the governor renominated, believing he will be the weakest candidate the Populists can name, caused his arrest for the purpose of arousmg sympathy for him in his party and stamped. ng the convention. On the other hand Republicans say that it is purely a political light between the Cleveland (white wings) Democrats and the Populists. The letter in question was enclosed in an envelope aud addressed '"Police Matron, Denver," and it was opened by -Matron Dwver.

The Tariff Leader Renominated for Congress Today. Condemns the Influence of the Suirar Trust. PEOPLE ARE AROUSED. They Will Not Stand Such Iniquities Longer. Says Present Law is Better Than McKinley Bill. Martinsburo, W. Va., Aug. 29. Chairman Wilson, of the ways and meaus committee, the Democratic tariff leader in the house of representatives, was re nominated for congress today. Mr. Wil son made a notable address to tho con vention: He said: "The honor to which you summon me today is not a new one for me to receive at your ceuerous hands. So many times has it coma to me in the past never coldly or grudgingly that J should vainly seek for new aud stronger language in which to assure you of my increasng gratitude for your ap proval aud support. But if tilting wordi are slow to come, I beg you not to doubt that I am more deeply moved and more affectionately touched by your alleciiou today thau 1 have ever been before." Speaking ol the tariff bill Mr. Wilson said: "You have followed with waning hope and angry disupproval the tedious and tortuous passage of that bill through the senate, and have teen that despite a nominal Democratic majority in that body, the great trusts and monopolies were still able to write their taxes as they had done under Republican rule in some of its most important schedules. The burden is upon you the same whether they use a Democratic or a Republican hand as their amanuensis. But the wrong to you is infiuiiely greater when those who bear the commission of your own party thus prove faithless to iis highest duties. '"You know by what influences this was brought about. The country knows and history will know where to put the re 8pona.biltty for our partial failure to re deem our pledges to the people, aud our partial failure lo dislodge the great priv ileged interests from our tariff. "The American people are aroused a3 hardly anything else could havo aroused them to the deadly me. i ace which pro tection begets to the purity and the very existence of free government. They have seen a single great trust empowered by our tariff laws to control the produc tion and sale of a necessity of life, par celling it out to the country aud using its law-made wealth aud power to thwart the best efforts of the people to reduce their own taxation. "They have seen it hold up congress for weeks and have heard its representa tives boldly declare that there would be no tariff bill iu which their interests were not protected and they have real ized the final fulfillment of tho boast. 'When the sugar trust thus challenges the American people to a contest of strength, its days are numbered; its tem porary triumph is its speedier and more complete overthrow, aud with its over throw wiil vanish its sister brond of mo nopolies that are strong through its sup port. "But, my friends, there is another and brighter side to this picture. With all its manifold failures, its fiual retention of man- protective duties, its objectionable sugar schedule and its excessive duties on cottons and woolens and metals, the new bill carries very substantial relief to the people aud must be accepted as a substantial begin ning of thorough aud progressive tariff reform. "We have a right to confess our own shortcomings as measured by tho high standard of our own principles and professions. We have a right to hold our owu faithless servants to that respon sibility, which the duty of party fidelity placed upon tliem. "But ail this does not imply dissatis faction with our own party as a whole, or distrust as to its meanings or iuteutiou. If the closeuess of the vote in one house of congress gave opportunity for a few to combine against the people and against all the rest of their parly,and obstruct its faithful efforts to redeem its uleVlges, the overwhelming mass of the Dem ocrats ivi the country are subject to no just criticism. ihey have kept the faith. They have been true to their principles. "V'e may denounce those who failed us in this tight. We are not, therefore, subject to condemnation by our oppo nents. If we have done less in the way of relieving the people's burdens than we had hoped aud promised, they would have done nothing at all. If we have anywhere uncovered a trust and found it too strong for our com plete dislodgemeut ia the first attempt, we have never failed to find them stur dily aud solidly arrayed for their de fense. "The weapons with which monopoly has fought they have forged and tem pered, and supplied the intrenchment and fortresses behind which privilege has shielded itself trom our attack, they have budded for it, stone by stone and stronghold by stronghold.

It Is Preferable to Feed Wheat and Sell Corn When the Same Price. Washington, Aug. 29. A bulletin on wheat as animal food has been issued by the agricultural department. It was compiled by Mr. D. E. Salmon, chief of the animal industry bureau of tho de partment and is iu response to inquiries a? o the value of wheat for growing and fattening animals, suggested by the important change iu the comparative prices pf wheat, corn aud oats. The bulletin advocates the use of screenings and imperfect wheat as ani mal food and the placing of only the best wheat on the market. A statistical table shows the near . approach chemically of 20.6 pounds of wheat to the German stan dard ration for growing cattle from six to twelve months of age and the fact that oo1 puundt of wheat comes much nearer the same quantity of corn. Equal parts of wheat and corn should, however, prove better for fattening animals thau either of these grains alone. "When wheat and corn are the same price per bushel," says the bulletin, "it is preferable to feed wheat and sell corn. First because wheat weighs 7 per cent heavier per bushel thau corn; secondly, because wheat is weight for weight, an equally good grain for fattening and bet ter for growing animals; and thirdly, be cause there is much less value in fertil izing elements removed from the farm iu corn than in wheat. "Wheat should at first be fed in small quantities, aud when possible, mixed with some other grain, and care taken to prevent any one animal lrom getting more thau the quautity intended for it. Precautions are especially necessary wheu wheat is fed to horses." The best form iu which to feed wheat is to roll or grind into a coarse meal. From Canadian experiments, it appears that wheat exceeds coru in feeding value, while iu South Dakota corn was found to exceed wheat. KOLBITES' INTENTIONS. They Will Elect n Republican to the Vnited States -Senate. Birmingham, Ala., Aug. 29. A prom inent Republican' who was active in Kolb's interest during the recent cam paign is authority for the statement that the Kolbites will meet in November, when the regular legislature meets, con vene a legislature of their own, elect a United Slates seuator lo succeed .Morgan, who will, it is thought, bo a Republican, and then adjourn. They will then let their senator con test with Alorgan, who will lie re-elected by the regular legislature, for the latter's seat. The Kolbites figure that the Re publicans will bo in the majority in the United Slates senate next year, and hope thereby to have their man seated. This will, it is thought, be the extent of the dual government of the Kolbites, and that they will not try lo prevent Oates from being governor. L0 C A LM EN TIO N.
