ILLINOIS REPUBLICAN CONVENTION. The' dlem I ocr atic ncv'spape:rs whiclh dl.ote tioet of their .sp 'de to itle exploitation of the political firiui'es of Iprominent re publicans are invited to explain what happened in thel llinois detmocratic con cvention yesterday. \\Willaia Jennings lBryan was the conspicutous figure of the occa sion by reason iof the fact that ineither lie nor the national platform of the detmo cratic party "got a call" during the entire proceedings, Surely lno man ever received such a snulhing as that accorded to the erstwhile idol of the demnlocracy and the principles he represented inl the last national cam paign. What the party will do for a can didate and a platform in the next campaign is Ibeyond conjecture. l)emocracy has be come simply a disorganized appetite for Office, for it now has neither leadership por convictions, if yesterday's convenltion illushtrates the situatiotn. In nearly every northern state so far the democrats inl convention have ignored or repudiated Bryan and all lie represents. Nothing is plainer at present than the fact that the national democracy is more hopelessly split than ever before in its history. Ilill and Gormanll who ti\o years ago were occu pants of tile democratic morgue are now the sole hope of w\hat is left of a party that once aspired to control the govern tnent Oif the country, but as neither of theit has a following either in the South or WVest, it is not unlikely that they will fail of success and that (,rover Cleveland will for the third timee e called upon as a Moses to lead the demoralized democrac. out of the political wilderness. That is not a pleasant prospect for the Western demo crats, but it will prove a blessing to the Country, as it will insure the continued domtination of the republican party and the perlpetuation of piresent republican pros. perity. PI:iI'I.e' who were fortunate enough to occupy seats in which they could hear what the players were talking about last night at the M.ansfield performance en joyc.l some of the most finished acting ever witnessed on the Butte boards. Mir. Mansfield is doubtless the greatest Ameri can actor and his attention to detail has given him a prestige which will perpetuate his fame. While it is well, however, to give the actor praise the author should not be forgotten, for the actor only repeats what the author has written. It was Booth Tarkington who conceived the incidents which Mr. Manlsfield and his company por tray. It was Booth Tarkington who in vented the characters of the play and put the language intto their moutlhs. Ilis genius, originality and wit it was that en tertained the audience last night, not Mr. Mansfield's. 'J'he actor simply spoke tile lines prepared for him, though it must be admitted that he spoke them well and gave a &eautiful and refined impersonation of the character of ,Mr. Tarkington's hero, It was a great night for Butte theater goers and Mr. Mansfield will always find in Butte an equally cordial reception. HEALTH OF THE CANAL. It appears from the debates in congress that the choice between the Panama and Nicaragua routes is now turning onl the question of their respective healthfulness. It has never been alleged that either of the proposed route runs through a health resort, and as between the two it is prob ably chills and fever in one case and fever and chllls in thile other. It woult lie most agreeablle to have the inter-oceanic canal run through a salulbrious cltnllllry, where the hahn of health and youtnh loats on the perfumied breeze, but this seemas to be ton toluch to expect. Anyhow, for a mllerte sthijp canal it dirts not matter sot ninch.

SOME GOLD FIGURES. George I';. Roberts, as director of the minl, keeps in close touch with the de late, I statlistic. s i'earing oni tihe world's .hl production arc full of interest. Ile is of the opinion tlhat Ite restoration of| p;,ce in south Africa still add at least $li il.omo i : 1 year tI tlie wealth of the worMiI os the l ld delpoIt iloe ,a ioeof tIlt region, without counting the diamonl tihl. andiil other soullrces.

Thren cattlle the Soullth Africanl war iand a nmaterial decline followed. Mr. Roberts is of the opinion thalt only for tie war thie yield by this tittle would have reached $.l5o,.,o tt.t. All experts do not agree witih hint ot these large tfigure;. The share itf the l.nited States itn the worhl's total will not hie far this year from $85,uooooo. In gold output we keep close to Australia, shich this year will producte between $Sooo,oi o i and $X3,ott,ttt. According to Mr. Roberts, in 1l)U1 the amolilunt of gol iut use as money in the entire world was $5,ooo, io,o l. anl inlcrease of $t ,t otlll titit,ot)O during the plast tell years.

'racy iand Merrill, the distitguished coun'icts, late of tlte Oregon leiitenitiary, seents to lte caatching, which cannot be said of the regilenlt or so of soldiers and citizena who have tcetn tryitng to catch them. Following the successful get-away of Messrs. Tracy and Merrill, with the glory that has attended it, two nilitary pris oters gave their guards the slip utt Fort Baker, Cal., yesterday mortling and were chased all day by two companies of tlte coast artillery and soo citizens. Inasmuch as tite escape of prisoners on tile coast seem to be equivalent to their joilnling per utanently the ticket-of-leave brigade, it is hardly worth while for the military atid constabulary out there to bother with thlem. IN New York they have started inl thus early to erect a statue to the memory of the late Amos J. Cummings. If the voice of Cummings could be heard from the astral plains it Hould probably be one of protest against this movement until such time in the dim and distant future as the monumnent to his old friend and em ployer, Horace Greeley, shall be completed by some of the same people who are now so early in the field for a Cunlnings Imon ument. A large fund has been raised for this Greeley monument, but an impene. trable veil of mystery hangs over it. The movement to erect a Cummings statue should result in some inquiry as to the whereabout, of this Greeley monument fund. WESTERN CROPS AND BUSINESS. ..hile we have gold to send abroad when our foreign friends are in need of it, as they occasionally are, still it is better to send them more wheat and corn and lwe, gold, for it is convenient and even necessary to have plenty of the latter if we are to mailltain favorable money rates for bushl ness purposes. The general crop outlook is good and there is every likelihood that the United States will have abundant supplies of both corn and wheat for export purposes this year. While there is a considerable reduc. tion of the wheat acreage the indications for the general crop point to a yield of about 640,000,000 bushels. This will be something like ioo,onoo,ooo bushels short of last year's crop, but last year was a banner year. If the experts are not wrong in their estimates the crop for tgoz will be larger than any crop except last year and IRl,X, when the yield reached the phenome nal total of 675.000,000 bushels. Thle high prices which have been ruling for corn insure a large planting, and a scc Mill failure of the crop, such as occurred last year, is not at all likely. Therefore for ,oth wheat and corn, and certainly for wheat, the prospects are favorable for a heavy yield and large exports, which keep the farmer in ready money and go so far to wards maintaining the general business of the country oil a profitable basis. This condition will lie greatly helped by a large cotton crop, of which there are now the best of indications. So with ample wheat and cotton crops andl fair prospects for corn, the South and West have a goiod year aheadl of them, and whenl tlhe South and \\est have good times there is rarely any cause for complaint from other sections of the country. RAILWAY FOR EASTERN ALASKA. I'ndoultedly the building of an all American railroad to open tip the re isources and develop the comlmerce of Eastern Alaska is an enterprise of the first importance to American Interests in that country. At present all the gold that comes out of Alaska, north or south of the Yukonl river, must reach Seattle through British territory. T'lhere is now announced in Seattle the incorporation of the Valdies, Copper River & Yukon Railway company, hacked by responsible mien, the purpose of which is to construct a railroad from Valdes up theI (topper River valley and through the rich agricultural district which exists Iear the headwaters of that river ex tendling to I'agle City. It is stated that Ea:stern eapitalists are ready to loan $40, o0i a mile for the construction of this road and as tile lille would lie 400 muiles ill length the sum of $.6,ooo,ooo would see it completed. 'file building and operation of such a road would open up tihe northern portion of the Copper River valley which is known to lie an immlense agricultural region, trot to speak of the great copper belt which is said to extend westward nearly 75 miles in width, in which is deposited sup Iposelly great mineral wealth, which de posits some experts allege "may exceed those of Monttana in richness." HIowever this may be, they will never be opened up to commerce without a railroad. I.eaving the coipper possibilities out of the qiues tion the gohl of the Yukon River valley ought to lie brought to the United States by an all-American railroad and steamship line which would lie done bly this pro posed route. It is an enterprise that deserves every encouragemlent. ENGLISH EAST AND WEST. Tn'I lite'rary ciritcs of New York and Iloston, and indeed of the entire East, have found fault with Mary MacLane's style of composition. Growing out of this we have noticed a disposition an the part of Eastern newspapers to dig up the old charge against the West of being "wild and woolly," and pointing to "our Mary's" literary efforts as positive proof of it. In this connection we desire to call attention to an address made a few nights ago by Alderman Bridges before the New York board of adlcrmen, of which body he is a distinguished member. Said Mr. Bridges: "I see motormen standin' onto a plat form of a car with one hand on the brake and one hand onto the 'lectricity and I see that them there hands was frozing so that if a woman or a children had been on the track he would have been killed, because the motormlen's hands were frozing. I want to beg this committee not to let this bill go to sleep but to keep it awake. This bill has fell into a hole onct before and has been covered up in Its silent grave, and I want to say that I have dug up this bill from its silent grave and I don't want to see it fall into no hole again." It is alleged that members of the city council of Spokane have been given to l.!p;es in their parts of speech, but every fair-minded student of Lindley Murray will admit that we have no statesman in the VWest whose language approaches in rugged picturesqueness that of Alderman Bridges of New York. Tue, great abundance of good and will ing republicans this year is in evidence back in Nebraska, where seven men are "in the hands of their friends" for nomi nation for governor at the state conven tion tomorrow. This circumstance is, of course, quite sufficient to cause demo cratic editors to turn the lime light of their great intellects upon what they call republican discord, about as they are do ing in Montana; but in Nebraska as in Montana, after the nominations are made the spectacle will be observed of all re publicans getting together and working in harmony for the success of the ticket. \VWmfeTHEI the democratic party favors the Nicaraguan or Panamna route for the isthmian canal will never be known until the republicans shall commit themselves to one or the other. Then the democrats will take the route that is left, and swear by all that is holy that the adoption of the other is a corrupt job. PEOPLE WE MEET. A TTORNEY P. W. BACORN is back from a trip to New, York and Boston. Hie spent three weeks in the two cities and saw many Montana men in the former. "When I entered the hotel at which I stayed," said Mr. Bacorn, in speaking of his trip today, "the first name on the re ister that caught my eye was that of R. D. Bayliss, who was formerly connected with the Drumlummon mine in Marysville. Be ing well acquainted with him, I sent him my card and in a few minutes we were di cussing old times in Montana. When I returned to the rotunda of the hotel I met Major Maginniss, Lawrence Harris and several other Montana men-in fact they were everywhere. While in the city I saw Dr. Murray and Dr. Campbell; also Mr.. Frank shaw. "Were it not for the western people I think New York and some of the other JUDGE J. W. BACORN. eastern cities would not prosper so well as they do. Every western man that goes into an eastern city spends money; some more than others, but in all they make a very fair distribution of coin. They are going and coming all the time, and seldom, if ever, return to their native haunts with as much money as they take away. The easterners get it. "The east is looking fine at present. The Ierkshire hills of Massachusetts are as green as they can be and are a relief to the eyes of the man who has spent the year in Butte. "Did I learn anything of the condition of the copper market? No, a man can hear more about it here than in the east unless it should so happen that during his wan derings he conies in contact with men who deal in the red metal andtl talk of little else. I suppose if I had met some of the gentlemen I would lie well posted on the situation. During the first day after my return I heard more about copper than I did durinig my eotire sojourn in the cast." W. BI. Sink, Jr., is one of the inter estillg horsclienii now in Ilutte with a string denning. There is no Has Views on that includes Wolhurst. Fistic Events. The Fog and GlLn track int the country where "W\illie" Sink is not known, and f.,vorably so. lie is noted for his good race track judgment which he generally mixes up with his knowledge cf the capability of horses and conditions which are likely to either improve or lesen the chances of wititing. In addition to being thoroughly posted on race horses Mr. Sink has a pretty thorough knowledge of all the noted pugilists. lie has seen all the chantm pionship battles for the past t5 years and is intimately acquaintted with Fitzsimmons and Jeffries. Mr. Sink was one of the few men who honestly thought Fitzsimnmons would beat Corbett when they fought at Carson City. While there were mtany who picked Fitz sitmtmons, a large mtajority of them picked hintm ecause the odds on the Australian were good. Mr. Sink chartered a private car and, with a party of friends, went from San Francisco to Carson City to witness the contest. \\hile not under estimating Fitzsimmons' chances Mr. Sink thinks that Jeffries will win this time. The Inter Mountain. [ Billings Times.] The Ilutte Inter Mountain is one of the best afternoon newspapers issued inl any city of the west, barring its political edi torials, and even they will pass muster at an old fashionled republican camp meeting. 'rThe Itter Mountain has recently donned a brand new dress atnd the paper is now onte of the very neatest daily publications priniteld. Its news service is strictly first class. CAPITOL CHAT. [ Vashington Post.] Senator Hanna appeared in a very un usual role in the senate chamber yester day. lie delivered a speech sitting. He talked from his chair, other senators gathered around him, and looked as if he was the leader of a class in Sunday school. Mr. Hanna spoke for an hour before succumbing to the pain caused by stand ing upon his rheumatic leg. Then le asked permission to speak while sitting, and this ,of course, was promptly accorded him. Occasionally, when same senator interrupted him with a question, Mr. lHanna would arise and answer, getting back to his chair as quickly as possible. Several times these questions and an swers were quite interesting. For in stance, Senator Hanna remarked that if the volcano in Lake Nicaragua should duplicate the performance of Mount Pelee, the lake would be filled with ashes, mud and lava. "The senator evidently does not know," suggested Mr. Harris of Kansas, "that the entire island of Martinique would not fill one-half of the area occupied by Lake Nicaragua." Senator Mitchell of Oregon also proved a thorn in Mr. Hanna's side. When Mr. Ilanna was reading the testimony of sea captains as to the advantages of the Pan ama over the Nicaragua route, Mr. Mitch ell pressed him very closely as to the cir cumstances under which the evidence was given, "These statements are in answer to questions," finally remarked Mr. Hanna. "By whom?" queried Mr. Mitchell. "By the persons who asked the ques tions," replied Mr. Hanna. And thei' everybody laughed. Fred-So she's a real actress, eh?
