A. at Cincinnati, calling attention to the national meet ing of ticket hrokers at Washington next month for the purpose of endeav orine to secure more favorable legisla tion for the association. The envelope is embellished with a cut representing the industrial army approaching the white house. The letter closes with the question, "Will you join Coxey's army or mine?" Geo. B. Perkins, than whom no more rustling real estate men grow, believes that the return of financial activity will be early and swift. He bases his opin ion on the fact that the value of money is rapidly falling. The supply is almost unlimited at 12 per cent, there is a large amount in the city at 10 per cent and loans on safe property in large sums may be effected at 8 per cent. Money having approached a figure at which it can be handled to advantage, an in crease in the number of investments of various kinds will naturally follow. WIPED OUT AGAIN.

Hester was a trine long, as was indicated by the program, it was attended by a large and fashionable audience which was seemingly upon tne wftole agreeably entertained. Even though it appeared from the beginning that the last number would not be reached until well near midnight, the listeners could not refrain from encoring several numbers of the first part. The artistically rendered solos of Mrs. H. E. Heighton and Mrs. Frank Cox received loud applause. Each responded, the latter with the "Swinging Sone". which faiily enthralled the house. The Man dolin and Guitar club, the juvenile or chestra and the ladies' band of Tempe, all performed creditably and in a manner showing careful train ing, ihe . clever young ladies from the South Side especially were far from the least interesting feature of the evening. Miss E. Allen received many whispered compliments from all parts of the house for her per fect accompaniments.

OREGON DEMOCRATS Still Faithful to the National Ad ministration. Astoria, -Ore., April 17. The Demo cratic state committee met here today. Probably a plank advocating the free coinage of silver will be reported and will precipitate a lively fight. The question of an endorsement of the na tional administration will also come up and is likely to cause a contest. The platform adopted charges that all the evils fromwhich the people are now suffering are due to the Republican party and its reckless legislation. The platform fayors an income tax and en dorses the Chicago platform of 1892. It endorses Cleveland's administration, the repeal by congress of the odious federal elections bill, demands the free coinage of silver, favors liberal pen sions to soldiers, the election of United States senators by a direct vote of the people and opposes Chinese and pauper immigration. . William H. Galloway was nominated for governor on the first ballot. STREET CAR ROBBERY. An Industry In San Francisco Which Amounts to a Mania. San Francisco, April 17.
