ancnl the situation in that country. The

of the powers has calmed the hotheads.
Continuing, Baron Von .Sauna. i Jeltsch
declares that the demands of the Ar-mcniansarc-iiujustiriableandiuipractieable.
They have great freedom In lellgiou and
trade, and are very' prosjierous. Their
unscrupulous manner of trading has stirred
up much bad blood between tin tuselies
and the Turks. Tliey have no regard for

and he represented that district in the last
legislature. Recently he was mentioned
as a Democratic candidate for governor,
but he declined to haie his name pre
sented to the comention.
Ills wife, who is about thirty years old,
very handsome and a society leader, was
Mrs'. Isabelle Wormser, of Kenwood, a sub

gaged In attending to the affairs of her first
husband, as she hud done ever since" his
death. Business brought her to this citj
where Hicks met her.

there was nothing in the manner or deport

"We hai e determined to meet the coercion

MOXEr THEY MUST HAVE.
It will be rutlced that Gen Bishop insists
that money is necessary to organize his
army. Nursling voti rs cannot be proierly
cradled at the Polls without the sinews
of war. The salaries cftheof fleers, the pur
chase ot ofrice mucilage, and the publica

must be met by prompt and literal contri
