arrested in Portland, Me., the other

Mn. Wiluah IL Vandekbilt's
treasure vault, in which he recently
stowed away some 100,000,000 in se
curities, is one of the most redoubtable
works of defense on the American con
tinent, though you may not be entirely
certain of that by surveying his man
sion from the outside. Its foundations
were blasted out of the rock; the front
wall is five feet in thickness, and the
side and rear walls three feet, the ma
terials used being pressed brick with
brown-stone trimmings. Tbo beams,
girders and main pillars are iron, in
cased in fire-proof material. Tbc doors,
window-frames and minor partitions ara
iron, marble and glass. No wood is to
be found in the structure. The great
vault is thirty-six by forty-two feet, of
wrought iron, steel and Franklinittf
iron. Is imposing in strength and pro
portions, and is situated on the ground
floor. Its four octer doors weigh 8,200
pounds each, and have every effective
and known improvement in defensive
devices. A massive wall of masonry
surrounds the ironwork. The vault,
which is burglar, fire, and water-proof,
constitutes a distinct bunding in itself.

The Platform.
-Ttesnu-fd, That we hold the lite decision ol

wblch this party has always advocated on the
right and authority ef Congress over the Issue
of legal tender notes, and we hereby pledgt
ourselves to uphold said ceclsifni and to de
fend tho Constitution against alterations or
amendment intended to deprive the people of
any rights orprlvUegeS conferred by that In
strument, we demand the issne ot such
money and In sufficient quantities to supply
the actual demand of trade and com
merce in accordance with the increase
of population and the development of
our industres. We demand the substi
tution of greenbacks for National Lank
notes, and the prompt payment of the public
debt. We want that money which saved our
country in time of war. and which has given It
prosperity and happiness in peace. IVc con

Third The nubile lands beinjr the natuial
Inheritance of the people, we denounce that

and we deraard that alien ownership of land,
individual or corporate, shall be prohibited.
Pourtb Wedtmand Congressional regula

taxation. It I a convenient issue, always
rslred when the people are excited over
abuses in their midst. While wc faror a wise
revision of the tariff laws, with a view to rais
ing revenue from luxuries rather tbao
necessaries, we Insist that as an economic
question its Importance is Insignificant as com
pared with the "nancial issues; for. whereas.
we have suffered our wort panics under
tow and also under high tariff, we have never
suffered from panic or seen our factories and
workshops stopped while the volume ot money
In circulation was adcouate to the needs ot
eoromcrce. Give our farmers and manufact
urers money as cheap as too now give our
bankers and they can pay uigh waxes to labor
and comrete with ail the world.

without a moment's hesitation:

This, Judge W. C. Jones, representing"
the Pacific Express Company, opposed,
stating that there was no cause for
leniency. The defendant was In the em
ploy of the company In a position ot trust
and proved hiraselt unworthy ot the con
science reposed In him. In the opinion
of the prosecution the imposition ot a
heavy sentence was due the employers'
and the company. Taking the circum
stances into consideration Judge Van
Wagoner took the latter view of the case.

raignment attracted a crowd from tie

was imposed In Judge Van Wagoner's'

reminded the court that the Indictment to
which Tiller pleaded covered the offense

Representative IVlilis ot Kentucky, Has
Hope t Getting Action in tho noose oa
This Important Measure.
WAsmso-tox, D. C, May Zt.
Mr. Willis, of Kentucky, the author of
the House educational bill, hopes to gel
that subject before the House for
its action this week. Now that the
bolk of the appropriation bills are
off the hands of the House, It is In
clined to turn Its attention to some of tho
more Important measures before it,
which are for the good ot the genera)
public In fact, the leading members'
recognize the necessity for doing some
thing. Almost six months of the session
have passed, and it Is difficiIf.opolntoQt
any general measure of Importance, aside
from the plenro-pnenmoula bill, and
one or two others of a general nature,
that have passed the House The gen
eral Impression among the friends ot the
educational but Is that it will not meet
with serious opposition at the House end
of the Capitol. It was pretty thorough!
discussed in the Senate, and the Senate
put the bill In such shape as to give gen
eral satisfaction. As amended by
the Senate, It Is now very similar
to the bill Introduced In the Uousf
by Mr. WUHs: se It Is proba
blc that Mr. Willis will, when the bit
comes up In the House, move to substi
tute the Senate bill for his own. In order
to lessen the complications which txcmM
follow, should the House adopt Its owa
bill instead of the Senate's, and the pros
pect that the bill may bcc-.xnealawscemi
to be very good.
