ILLINOIS REPUBLICAN CONVENTION.

the political firiui'es of Iprominent re
publicans are invited to explain what
happened in thel llinois detmocratic con

was the conspicutous figure of the occa

nor the national platform of the detmo

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

is Ibeyond conjecture. l)emocracy has be

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

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.

a pleasant prospect for the Western demo

Country, as it will insure the continued

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. 'l'he conlnerce of the

SOME GOLD FIGURES.
George I';. Roberts, as director of the
minl, keeps in close touch with the de

Roberts is of the opinion thalt only for
tie war thie yield by this tittle would have

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

T''it exatiie of Messrs. '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.

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."

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?
Will-She's an actress all right, but not
