THE result of the joint debate be

yet been settled in a manner satisfac

If the matter were left to the political
editor of the Helena Journal he would
doubtless decide that the debate never t

$7,000 for violating the New York law

THE other day Wanamaker declined

Junna Aruiorw W. 'TOUaaIEF presumer
to discuss New York politics in the Chii
cago Inter Ocean with the knowledge 01
one thoroughly informed on politica
history, past and present, in New Yort
state. If Judge Tourgee has evei
played, even a minor part, in the polit
ical affairs of the Empire state, nobody
ever found it out. He has never beer
a candidate for state honors; he hat
never been regarded as a man worthy ol
consultation by the republican leaders
nor does his name ever appear in the
New York papers from the remote cor"
ner of the state in which he has been
living for the past few years. But if he
was recognized as an authority the fol
lowing contribution to the Inter Ocean
would be sufficient evidence of an unus
ual amount of political and personal ig
norance. In discussing the fitness of
candidates he remarks: "Mr. Flower
is merely an over-rich man, who wants
the governorship as an incident to the
better enjoyment of his millions. A
man whose brains lie in his pocket and
who advertises their absence under his
hat." This now obscure writer goes
much further in his prejudice than the
more radical of the New York papers.
Mr. Flower is a wealthy man who has
accumulated his fortune by legitimate
business methods. He has never been
accused by his enemies of being a snob.
Those who know him and his personal
history know that he rose from the com
moner walks of life and by his persist
ent industry, business energy and brains
has reached a commanding position in
the business world. He served two

date before two democratic state con
ventions in New York, and he is now
before the people as a candidate for the
highest office within their gift. The
people of New York do not nominate
brainless men on either ticket. If it is
a detriment, for which a man should
suffer, to be "over-rich," many republi
can statesmen could be placed on the

In searching for a successor to Tennyson

A Florida man who visited Robert Bon

famous old mare, Maund S., grazing in a
paddock near the stable. She was en

Then she trotted up to take a mouthful of

Walter H. Evans, a young Indiana botan
slet who spent the summer exploring the
southwestern states in search of cacti for
the agricultural department, says that he
did not see a single rattlesnake or tarantula

time of it gathering the cacti.
Gen. Beauregard appeared at a meeting
of the Daughters of the Confederacy in St.

to the usual hero-worship that obtains on

showing up in striking contrast to a
healthy and ruddy complexion.
Solon Chase, the veteran apostle of flat

Campbell is not the orator McKinley is,
but in his simplicity of speech, his sym
pathy with his audience and his avoidance
of anything theatrical, wins votes where
his opponent fails. He is much quicker
than MoKinley in seeing a point, is more
ready in retort and his off-hand style of ora
tory effects better results than the major's
set speeches. Moreover, he makes use of
no lead-plate lu.r-ling machiues to raise

"1 wish to show yon two superb ruble's,
which have jest been purchased for me in
Paris," said the young lady to t man
skilled in disoerning the qualitis o.rel
onue stones. She took the rng off her finger
and handed it to the lapidary. The latter
adjusted his monocular and went to the
light of the window. He looked intently
for a minute or so and then returned.
"Were these stones bought for rubies?"
queried he anxiously.
'Yes, I wanted two pigeon-blood oriental
rubies on either side of this water-white
diamond, and, not being able to get the
finest mn this country, I sent to Paris for
them. Why, aren't they pigeon-blood ori
ental rubies?" was the trouoled reply,
The lapidary looked at them once more
seriously said: "No. They are not, They
are, however, the finest kind of orieptal
garmete and a'e worth about $20 apiece."
The young lady stepped back in surprise.
Thi gems had cost about $2,000. One of
the beat jewelry firms in Paris had recom
mended the house from which the alleged
rubies had come. The lapidary was posi
tive that his deciston on the preoiousstones
was correct, and he advised them to bi re
turned to the Parisian jewelry firm.
The young lady went to a'notary with the
lapidary. The two garnets were removed
from the ring and carefully sealed in a
package. The lapidary made an affidavit
that these stones were oriental garnets and
not pigeon-blood oriental rubies. This affi
davit was inclosed in the package and
shipped back to the Parisian jewelers.
The next mail steamer from France, after
the receipt of the alleged rubies and the
affidavit, brought $2,000 from the jewelry
house and a letter acknowledging regret
fully that the stones were only oriental
garnets. The Parisian firm pleaded in ex
cuse that they had been deceived them
se!ves in the stones. Jewelry firms in this
city report that impositions upon Ameri
cans by European houses are of frequent
occurrence. The case just cited is, how
ever, the most flagrant that has ever come
to the knowledge of Philadelphia jewelers.

warrant be issued for his arrest. Before
the warrant was made -out, howeverr Gage
and counsel appeared in court, and. Ray
mond, after explaining"that the deity was
unavoidable, announoed that Gags would
purge himself of contempt and in recogni

both he and Richard Chute, who had been
convicted of contempt for refusing to com

the grand jury and testify. He, Raymond,
regretted that the supreme court in its de
cision at Los Angeles yesterday did not set

means for testing that question as s.tdily
as possible. Judge Wallace th lan

one day's notice from the district attorney,
should Gage fail to appear before the jury
when wanted. The order deolaring his bail

Not Noticed by Me., Working in the Deep
Mines of Nevada.
The Misesislppi valley has recently ex
perienced an earthquake shock which for
severity has not been equalled for years, an
incident which revives interest in the query:
How deep does the earth "quake" when na
ture shakes her crust like the cyclone does
the circas tent? At Virginia City, Nev.,
the preat earthquake of 1879 was not no
ticed by the miners in the deeper portions
of the Comstock mines. The famousearth
quake at the same place in 1874, whish
shook down chimneys, fire-walls, etc., and
cracked every brick building In the city,
was merely noticed by some of the miners
working in the "upper levels," but did
them no damage, not even shaking down
loose rocks and earth. The station men in
the various shafts felt it strongest, and the
deepest point where it was noticed was by
the ninth station man, who was on watch
at the 900-foot level, which is, of course,
900 feet below the surface. He said it felt
like a faint throb or pulsation of air, as
though a blast had been dird above, below,
or in -sme indefinite direction. In some of
the Virginia City mines the shock was not A

on this curious fact at the time. remarked
that earthquakes seemed to be of electrical

and not from tee depths of the earth.
A Poor Smoker.
Although in later life Napoleon was a
votary of the snuff box, he was never known
to attempt smoking but once. The Persian
ambassador having presented him with a
magnificent oriental pipe, he wished to C
give it a trial. After being instructed how
to proceed, he desired his attendant, Con
stant, to light it. It was accordingly prop
erly charged and lighted. We will let Con
stant tell the rest of the tale. "I obeyed
