Keep things cool in hot weather. That's
the only way to always have your table
supplies fresh and wholesome. Our hard
wood refrigerators are the best ice-boxes
in this oountry for the twofold reason
that they are unequalled for keeping
everything plaoed in them nt a proper
temperature without an ondne and costly
waste of ice. This makes our refrigera
tors cheaper than any others in the mar
ket. , Get the best by getting oars. The
known superiority of these refrigerators
was oar reason for selecting them. We
therefore recommend them with absolute
confidence. To purohase one is a stroke
of practical economy.

Chairman Tlinrmau Surprised That
Carlisle Should Repeat One of
John Sherman's Back Num
ber Screeds.
Salt Lake Convention Oampaign of
Education Urged Address to the
People Silver Convention
Called in Louisiana.
Columbus, Ohio, May 21. Allen W.
Thurman, chairman of the Democratic
state committee, on being asked to-day
what he thought of Secretary Carlisle's
speech on the silver question said: "To
all those conversant with the history of
the subject, it is simply langhable that
the great secretary of the treasury, in de
fense of the administration and sound
money, has been oompelled simply to
make the same speech that John Sher
man made and has been making eaoh
year for the last twenty years. It is
almost a dead copy and has been an
swered over and over again until the peo
ple are weary of it. The same dishonesty
pervades it, but, in the oase of Carlisle, it
is worse, beoanse he pretends to be a
Democrat, and then states that Demo
cratic senators and among them my
father voted for the aot of 1873. He is
trying to create the impression all the
while by his statements that they did this
with a full knowledge of what the bill
contained, when he knew that everyone
of these senators and representatives, in
cluding grand old Beck from his own
state, denied in the United States senate
that they had any ench knowledge.
SILVEB CONVENTION IN LOUISIANA.
New Orleans. State Treasurer John
nickett is in New Orleans to arrange for
a convention of free silver men next

free coinage. Gov. Foster and sup
porters of the state administration favor
the gold standard.
Later It was decided to-day to hold a
silver convention next month.
SILVEB IN GEBHANY.
Berlin. The lower house of the Prus
sian diet to-day by a vote 1S7 to 92
adopted a motion urging the government
to take steps in favor ot an international
settlement of the currenoy question with a
view to securing international bimetallism.
The house also adopted an amendment to
the effect that Germany is to act in con
junction with Great Britain.
THE CAMPAIGN OF EDUCATION.
Salt Lake.'Utah. Thomas Q. Merrill,
Edward B. Light and L. Bradford Prince,
the committee appointed by the exeoutive
committee of the national bimetallic
union to prepare instructions for the or
ganization of state, district, city and town
anions throughont the oountry, have is
sued the following address upon the sub
ject, and earnestly req nest the newspapers
of the country to publish the same:
To the People of the United States:
It is a matter of vital importance in
carrying ont the plan of action adopted
by the meeting of the national bimetallic
uuion, that in districts, towns, oities and
states the organization of bimetallic
unions be entered upon at once. The ob
ject of these unions is for thorough or
ganization in tne interest of the edncation
of the voters of the land upon the finan
cial question, whioh is the burning quos
tion before the American people to-day.
The only hope for the success of this
struggle for the full restoration of silver
to its place as money at the ratio of 16 to
1 by the United States is in each educa
tion of the people as willcauseamajority
of the voters of our oountry in November,
1896, to vote for independent bimetalism
regardless of party lines.
The formation of these unions may be
entered upon at onoe, and we suggest
that each union adopt the name of the
district, town or state in whioh it is or
ganized, and that the secretary of each
union address a letter to E. B. Light,
secretary national bimetallio union, Den
ver Colo., who will forward a form of
constitution and by-laws recommended
by the national organization.
As soon as the local organizations are
completed they shall appoint a commit
tee of their most earnest workers for the
purpose of circulating a subscription
paper throughout their entire communi
ties. We would further recommend that
the subscription be made in monthly pay
ments, which shall continue nutil Nov
ember, 1896.
Further recommendations will be
made by the secretary at the time the
constitution and by-laws are forwarded.
The money so raised is required for the
purohase and circulation of bimetallic
literature furnishing honest and unan
swerable arguments for full and inde
pendent bimetallism, believing that this
is the only way to restore permanent
prosperity to our beloved land. This is
a struggle between the money power and
patriotism, and in order to win our cause,
as we have the money interests to oppose
us, which are all powerful, it is absolutely
necessary that every patriotic citizen
Shall at once enlist in the fight add render
us as great assistance as it is in his
power until this battle is won.

Prospect That the Pacific Cable to

England.
Now York, May 21. An Ottawa dis
patch says: "It may be taken as a set
tled faot that the Pacific cable will be,
like its promoters, essentially British.
Under its treaty with the United States,
the Hawaiian government is preoloded
from allowing a foreign power to aoquire
any portion of Hawaiian territory. The
United States having given an adverse
answer to Great Britain's petition to ae
cure Neckar or Bird island as cable sta
tion, the Fanning inland route will be
adopted. '

china's coin.
A careful computation of the figures
of the Chinese national debt shows t hat at
the present moment it aggregates only
about 10,000,000, a sum insignificant iu
view of the great resources of the nation.
Most of these loans were paid to the
Chinese in silver, but in only two in
stances is it stipulated that they shall be
repaid in the same metal, and the balance
must be refunded in gold. In view of
this small floating debt it is believed here
the Chinese will have no difficulty in
raising the entire amount of the indem
nity to be paid to Japan, at a low rate of
interest, the Chinese taking Bilver and
paying the loan in gold.

Guthrie, O. T., May 21. The publica
tion of the president's proclamation open
ing the Kickapoo Indian country to settle

stated that the race suffers for three
causes, viz: Anti-negro legislation, such
as the separate coach law, mob violence,
and lack of representation on juries,
which have come either from vicious laws
or from want of lews affording relief to
cure these evils. It is set forth that the
negro holds the balance of power, and
that this meeting will be for the purpose
of concentrating the negro vote.'

ABSOLUTELY PURE
COMPLICATED LITIGATION.
Mexican Kallroad and Construction
Companies In the Slew York
, Courts-Colorado Capital
Involved.
Brooklyn, N. V., May 21. The case of
Supt. Joseph A. Davidson, as assignee of
the Mexican National Construction com
pany, against the Mexican National rail
way for the recovery of $197,271, with in
terest since 188G, is np for adjudication
in the supreme oourt at Brooklyn, before
Justice Callen. The litigation dates back
twenty-five years, when the Mexican gov
ernment conceded certain grants for
building railways connecting the south
ern republic with the United States.
Gen. William J. Palmer organized the
Mexican National Construction company
under the lnws of Colorado. This com
pany famished a cash capital of f 8,000,
000, bnt this was not sufficient to carry
out the big project, and an auxiliary
oompany, the Mexioan National railway,
was established under the laws of Colo
rado. ,
This company, whjle in control of the
Construction company, had to furnish the
capital for building the main road and
several branohesto San Lnis Potosi and
the Pacific. For that purpose stocks and
bonds to the amoant of $40,000 per mile
were issued and floated. The railway was
oompleted and then the Construction
company had to make an assignment to
Mr. Davidson, whose business was to
oolleot all outstanding accounts, and so
he began Bait against the railway com
pany, whioh was indebted to the Con
struction oompany outside of the stocks
and bonds held by the company.
STOCK NOTES.
Silver City Eagle: The cattle ship
ments from this comity this year have
been larger than they have ever been be
fore. The Santa Fe has never been so
busy hauling stock out of the territory
as it has been for the past two weeks.
Deming Headlight: The Santa Fe has
reoeived orders for 1,400 cars for cattle
shipments from Arizona between the 10th
and 15th of the present mouth, the largo
portion of whioh will be used here in
Deming receiving Southern Pacifio ship
ments. Lordsburg Liberal: Lnst Monday a
train of stock cattle, loaded at Benson,
was traveling east. On top of the cars
was a lot of alfalfa. Near Cage the hny
on a car near the middle of the train
oaught fire, it is supposed from sparks
from the locomotive. Before the train
oonld be stopped the cur was on fire. No
water was near and the fire could not be
put ont. The burning 1 car was pulled
away from the rear of the train and then
the front end of the train was pulled
away from the car and it burned to the
ground. The fire was so fierce the train
men oould not open the doors and the
oattle all burned to death.
Clayton Enterprise: The Mexicans
have a very simple sheep dip made large
ly from palma root and tar. They take
soap weed root, boil and bruise it until
it is thoroughly reduced to a pulp. To
each pound of pulp they add two pounds
of tar and let it stand about a week, un
til the soap weed dissolves the tar, stir
ring it several times eaoh day. The ad
dition of a little alcohol makes it
smoother using one half pint to the
prescribed proportion. When the tar is
thoroughly out they add sufficient water to
reduce it to the strength required about
five gallons whioh can be reduced to
twenty gallons on cleaner sheep. We
doubt the efficiency of this dip as com
pared with lime and sulphnr iu curing
scab, but it is probably a better prepa
ration for the wool.
