Tliey nre hIuiiIIiik Hub' from the horrible vision that it con. Jutes tip. It Is to mve themselvcH for a few short iIi'.vh from the luirrowiiijx siuht that Hit following was penned nml prouitilj:titcd last Wednesday: Chlcai. Oct. 7. Ileadinmrtersof the Democratic Party of Cook County, 7." Kamlolph Street To the presidents and sccrct.iric of sliver cliitis, cook Comity. 111.: licntlemen: At n Joint meeting of the Democratic campaign committee and presidents and secretaries of the stiver clubs of Cook County, the following resolutions were unanimously adopted: "Itcsolved. That nil members of nit silver clubs In Chleap) and Cook Coun ty are hereby ropicstcd to do every thing in their power innom; the voters of this county to prevent them from vothijr In the Chimpi llccord postal card contest. "Itcsolved further. That tin only pro tection that tin worklnumcii of tills country have Is the Australian ballot law. In view of that fact, he It fur- '' .-.v. , w. . m .

IMmI, when, lu the ii Ivacy uud seclusion of the poll Ins booth, they will then east their votes for William Jennings Ilrynn. "THOMAS (5AI1AN. Ohiilriuaii. "It. K. ItPUKi:, Secretary." If It were not for the ludicrous nlde of this story the picture It coiivyn would be a pathetic one. The appeal to the "sliver clubs" of Chicago to ab stain from vothiK Is really laiiKlmble. As a matter of fact, the membership of these alloyed nllver clubs doesn't nv eraye thirty to u ward. In order to have a pithcrlu;: of any sort of pre sentable dimensions, they nre oIiIIkciI to arr.uiKc that no two contiguous wards rhall have meetings on the same ul'ht, so that bums of one can help the other out. For Instance, If the loafers and Iiiiiiim of the Twenty-fourth ward huvc a silver club meeting to-ulKht, the same sain; of vaurnnls will have work ed up the next ulht to tin Twenty third, uud the nlulit following their familiar faces will be found lu the Twentieth. It 1 4 stated on cood uutlioilty that re- ciut icsi'.irchcs of North Side ciitonml- oism iiiivo ticuioustr.tteii tlmt neiiiiup'i of n vntiety ami iiiiillty iiccullar to tin Twenty-fourth waul have been found cavorting around the precluct.4 of the Prcshyteilau seminary lu the Twenti eth wnrd, ami always lu pvatot num bers nfler a meeting of the "silver club" of the Twentieth waul. It niiilters little whether the silver club obiys or Ignores the dcmauil of the Altceld nmnap'is. The llccord can n on with its poll uud they will never be missed, THE SOUND MONEY PARADE. Chicago day's parade will go down lu history us the grandest demonstra tion of patriotism ever imiile by the cltle.ns of the great metropolis of the west. One hundred thousand cltleus lu line for the muse or good govern ment nml American honor, with twe hundred uud llfty thoiisnml people look lug on lu approval, Is tho spectacle planned by the leaders In Chicago citi zenship who have lu hand the great eel ebrattoii, mid It Is one that Is destined to have splendid effect In the day or trial that will be with us shortly. Tin shout that Chicago sends up on Oct. ! for the Stars uud Stripes ami all that ,t stands for will bo hcaid from one end of this laud to tho other. As a pageant noun equal to It has been found since the magulllccnt outpouring of Chicago citizenship on the occurilou of tho ded ication of the World's Fair. An a dem onstration It stands unequalled lu tin annuls of the city. lu proml-io of grand fruition on th day when the nation's battlo will bo fought with ballots It Is rich beyond llio hopes of Its most eiilhitslnstlc pro moters. It Is a demonstration beyond all doubt nml cavil of thoftnuml patriot ism of Chicago nml of tho assured fact that Its citizens will by an overwhelm ing majority vote for tho salvation of dm country from the grip ami ilonilua- ' Mon of tin aggregation of would-be leoiiot'lastt of American history, the story that It tein mill the atntcftiuc.) iml hcroe that ltvcrt ami died to make It glorious. ALTQELD'S CONVICT LABOR. Tin whllownshliitf committee sent to Juliet to Investigate the iitiesttoti of con vict labor In the penitentiary, ostensibly for tin Information ot orjrnuled labor in Cook County, but In lcnlliy to fes cue John P. AltKcId fiom the iiredlcn incut In which he has been placed by the open letter recently sent hli.i by ivprcseiilatlvcs of elKht distinct trades unions, bus fulled of Its purpose lutio mliilously. Tlmt th committee did not really represent the orKiinlzed labor of (,hi ciiko. unit was composed simply of it Tew cheaii tools of John P. Al'.jicld, N pi-oven beyond doubt by the fact that It chunked the scope nml direction of the Inquiry which Is wns orlplunlly iippolntcd to niiike. the moment tlmt the iittnck contained In the open letter alluded to was imiile public. Instead of lieluc nllowcd to ptiiRtie the course oilirlnnlly marked out for II. (he com mittee was called off by llti musters uud compelled to prepare a special pirn I u defense of "tlie boss." Any ivpntt eimitmtlnu from such u committee Is In the minds of u discern liiK piddle worthless. Aside from llili', liowever, the fact Is that the repoit fulls to disprove the odious chume conveyed by Implication lu the open letter that A I lucid has been since hl-i election tlit persistent foe of union labor uud Hit patron nml promoter of convict labor. The wliitewashlui; report. Instead of hclpliu; AllKfld out of his dllllciilty. only conllnus the statement that the Coventor fostered lu the penitentiary the following trades to the injury of honest uud liiw-iibhlltn; laboring men of this county nml State: Harness milking, clpir nmklm;. broom niiikliiLr, willow nml rnttaii woik, wiiixon makliiK. uud shoe iiuik Iiik. II fulls to disprove the charge that AllKchl Iiiim Kone to considerable trou ble to Incit'iise the capacity nml the output of these various depart incuts of orKiinlxetl competition with regu lar labor, and, It may be said Koucr silly. It leaves Mr. Altpdd In n .voisy condition t lut ta It leund him. THE PRESENT DEMOCRAIIC CHINE MUST 00. MA- Then lias been much udo over the ulh'ged removal of Congressman Hyiium uud the substitution for him of the Hon. John P. Hopkins us chair man of tin so-called sound money Dem ocratic campaign in Illinois. TIiI.h does not concern practical Democrats. The rank mid lite of the party Is more In terested lu helping defeat tin men who have temporarily ruined tin party nnd driving the lenders among them from power than In the question of su preiuiiey lu mi organization that Is ab solutely useless lu the light that Is now upon us. The average Democrat who has pride lu his party nml who glories In Its tra ditions tlnds tin refuge from the condi tions Hint now confronts his party In Hie gold .Democratic movement.- He sees In it not even the promise of u for lorn hope. For (lu present every true Democrat is Interested solely In tin i ('generation of Ids party. The oppor tunity Is offered to accomplish this by voting In the manner that will most certainly result In destroying tin power of those who degenerated It. Tills opportunity will doubtless be n vn lied of by tin great body of honest Democrats. Tlielr votes will be cast this time for the ltepnbllcan ticket, both Statu uud national. The gold Democratic ticket was placed lu the Held lu u moment of passion, nml was never meant to be successful. No citi zen should waste his vote upon it. No citizen who loves his country and Its Institutions will do so. For nil of 'these reasons the Democ racy of Illinois knows little mid cares less about tin organization and leader ship of tin gold Democracy this year. It Is true that it contains lu its mem bership the very ereain of the Demo cratic paity of this State, nml the men who are In the fore ft nut of the move ment nre those who art destined to re deem the party from Its fallen condi tion, The position they occupy lu this campaign, however. Is an utterly hope V'ss one. It Ik Idle to vote for their ticket; Its campaign Is without aim oi object, w. far us can be Judged, nml the. comings mid goings of the men lu com mand of lis organization are of no moment to practical Democratic citi zens Just now. REQISTER. Oct. lit and 120 are the days set for the general registration, which, accord ing to law, precedes every presidential election. Uvery voter should remem ber thl: nnd prepare himself to register on either one of the dates mentioned. No previous registration will avail after Oct. "jo, the last day of general regis tration for IMMl. This year will be a memorable one lu tin annals of the mi' Hon. Uvery man who as a citizen and voter participates lu the great struggle between the forces of patriotism ami disintegration will have the privilege of taking part lu the formation of one of the most Important chapters lu the his tory of his country. The registration will undoubtedly he one of the. heaviest ever witnessed hi Chicago. WHO HAS THE FUNDS? Tlie sum of .JO.SUO has been collect ed from ciimlldntcs nml otheis by the silver gang now running the remains of Hie Democratic puny lu Cook County. Not ll cent of it IlilH been spout, ex cept for the rent of headquarters uud snlarlcH of clerks. Who has tho rest of It V That's what Hie average sllveiite wants to know p. d. q. OUTRAGEOUS INCREASE IN VIEW ASSESSMENTS. LAKE There Is already nu Immense miiouut of kicking over the assessment inadu by Assessor J. J. Wilson in Lake View. iil aw!

Windy Jones of Calamity Hollow. Ar kansas, says that nil of the men lielonu' lu to labor organizations In Chicago will vote for Itryan and that Hint will elect liltu. Why, Jones'.' There nre only 41,000 men connected with ni'Kn nixed labor In Chicago. Then nre over .".00,000 voters. So Jones will get left even If lie iIoca get the labor vote, which la will Hot get solidly. THEwbPARADE8. If you desire to II lid out the rcnl Issue In Chicago tills fall, Just read the names of the niarshnls of the ltepnbllcan sound money nnd Democratic five sil ver parades, Chicago day. Comment is unnecessary. Tin; people of New York nro Just now concerning themselves mure or loss with tht Ktiulpplsts. To rise nt gray dawn nnd wander forth In search of the Innocent but fnr from unsus pecting Knclpplst Is Just now a Goth am diversion, common nllko to the street urabs ami the Idle pleasure seekers. The Kuulpplsts, be It known to the uninitiated, arc followers or the llnvarlnu priest, Father Knelpp. nnd they believe that walking bare footed through the dewy grass of ear ly morning will cure nil the ills to which human llc.ih Is heir, not exclus ive of mi undue fondness for chewing gum. This, at least. Is what tlielr friends attribute to them: the Knelpp Ists themselves tell n different story -n story replete with lialr-brendlh es capes nml wonderful discoveries: a story which throws the most ll.imboy ant patent medicine advertisement ever written' far into the shade. Gout, sciatica, rheumatism, poor complex. Ions, the foot-ball limp nnd the bicycle hump, unorthodox religious opinions, ami mistaken Ideas of one's own Im portance nil disappear before n vig orous course of the dewy grass treat ment, so say these Itn-ile-slecle bare foot pilgrims, nml lu pursuance or this Idea they have pre-empted the parks. Any New York Knelpplst who desires to take a dew constitutional may do so unmolested between tho hours of II nnd 8 in the morning. It is more than probable that he will Had himself the center of tin Interested crowd, nml hu may Indeed, certainly will meet with much derision nnd guying, but the danger of nrrest is over. Not so very long ngo the harmless mid guile less Kuelpplsts who doffed his foot gear In tho parks was in great danger of coining Into collision with the law. In many cases he escaped because tht policeman who spied him nt his chilly tramping hardly knew what to charge him with; lu others ho was forced to submit to n rigid questioning. Hut those bleak and troublous days nre over. From tills time on public amusement nml fun-poking are nil that the Knelpplst need fear. And tho, tide of public Interest nml laugh ter runs high. After our expctlenco In 1S1U In con sequence of the wholesale, lynching of Italians belonging to the Society of the Ma tin lu New Orleans, it was to 1m expected that the Italian Government would give prompt iittvntlon to tho outrage of u similar character that was perpetrated nt the hiiuiu place re cently. This It has done, Instructing Huron Fuvii, the Italian Ambassador, to forward to ltomu precis.' nnd detail ed Information couceriilug the nu'nlr. One of the Italians lynched Saturday lint! niurilcrcM nu American citizen, us Is now pretty well established, and thus there was strong provocation of violent resentment. That, of course, did not warrant overriding the law, but what makes tho case still darker Is Hint It hC(tus to hu cqiully well es tablished that the uurdcrcr's two country men hilso lynched were not guilty of the oll'euso for which he nuf fcrcd. The government of Italy Is not likely to let such nu iilVatt pass with out milking demands which to some extent we shall be hound both in honor mid by precedent to recognize, lu 1MU a number of Italians suffered death lu Nuw Oilcans ut the hamla of u mob bcctiUKc of supposed complicity In the assassination of Chief of Pollen Hen nesrey. Tho coniinijnlty was terribly exasperated nnd tt Northern mini or ganized and led Hie mob which broke Into the Jail mid killed tic) Italian In mates without the liipirventlou of Judge or Jury. Perhaps lu tlmt ufi'iilr the Innocent sulVered with Hie guilty. At till eveiilH, the government acknowl edged Its responsibility am! made what amends it could for neglecting to pro tect the rights of Italian subjects. If tho circumstances ptovo similar It will have to do It ngiilii. There could bo no disaster more coin pletu within .the scope of its Held of opi-i-mlnii than tlmt which has befallen the little town of Ontci-igon lu the northern peninsula of Michigan. One of those ilren which break out III the northern forests during the dry weath er of the fall, sun minded '.he little city nnd fairly obliterated It, destroying several millions lu property uud leav ing iilmo.st the entire population with out shelter. It Is estimated that ut least 1,."00 people nro iiind'j utterly de pendent, the bends of families having been thrown out of employment, with ii very poor prospect of getting nny during the ruuuiluilor of Uio year. The town, Indeed, limy not be rebuilt at till. There lire ninny other cities in the great forest region which tun the risk every year of meeting the Into of On tonagon. In n hamlet remotu from largo centers mid surrounded by forest protection Is us Impossible us escape. In tho full of tho year when tho for csts have become thoroughly dry tho falling of a tree rubbing against mi nt her or u spark from ni ciigiuu will begin Hu havoc which Is to bo felt lu villages far dlstnnt. Nor does there scum to bo any way to Mop tho ninrcli of the lire or divert Its '.'nurse. Like the ctirthqiiako, tho cyclone mid tho lightning stroke, the forest lire can no. ho foreseen mid It cannot bo guard ed against. Its results nic ns pictur esquely tragic ns those of cither of tho 1 ..'yfcwjJi '-iff v"r"y-J.lt"'.'.-i!a-l other tihenotnenn. All that cnu be done Is to nld stifTcrers nut help them to tlielr feet ngnln. Willie woman under tho French law suffers tunny disabilities ns n wife, ns n mother die enjoys privileges not ne corded her in other nnd In some re spects more liberal communities. Thus in tho consult do famlllc, tlmt thorough ly French Institution, she lias mttcti weight, nnd If hor grown son Is too free tti scattering his money, she may secure n Judicial decree restricting Ids Income, depriving him of the right to contract debts which flhall be held good In law, nnd otherwise reducing him to the legal stntus of nu Infant. It will be remem bered tlmt Mnx Lcbnti'Jy's mother brought suit for such n restraining de cree against her spendthrift sou, nnd there was n terrible to-do when Hie Judge refused her petition on the sub versive nnd revolutionary ground Hint enormous fortunes nro n tueiince to Hie state nnd that restrictions of spend thrifts, while good Tor the Individual, nre Inimical to the Interests or the peo ple nt huge. Hut lu n more recent stilt, brought by his mother ngalnt Comto A. de Montesquieu, who had been gam bling away bis patrimony nt n too rapid rate, the court vindicated the mother's right nnd put It out of the young man's power to impoverish himself. After discus-slug the question for over seventy yenrs 1 1 rent Hrltaln has decided to adopt the metric system of weights nnd measures, nml n bill lias been drafted which pnrllanieiit will consider nt Its next session. One ciTcct of Hie adoption of the new system will he to do uwuy with n very solemn nml ridiculous ceremony, one of tunny lu vogue there. This Is tho iiiiiimil In spection of the parllmueuviry samples of the Imperial yard uud pound meas ure. The speaker of Hie house, the pres ident of the Hoard of Trade nnd sov dent of the Hoard of Trade mid sov eiul othe:1 dlgnlllcd olllcers once u yenr open n u oak box which Is bricked up' lu Hie standard wall of the new pal r.ce. Westminster. They dike out n lend case, which they unsolder, nml lift therefrom a tnnliogmiv box. Out of this they tnke a bronze rase which contains In silver gilt wrappings the brass yard measure nnd pcuiid weight. If they have not rJirunk or Increased In size they nro solemnly put kick Into nil their cases ngnln. This Is the rather ruilv manner in which Ittisklu describes modern love milking uud marriage ns lo observes It lu London: "In a miserable confusion of candlelight, moonlight mid limelight -mid anything hut daylight; lu Inde cently attractive nml Insanely expen sive dresses; lu snatched moments, In hidden corners. In accidental Impulses nml dismal Ignorances, young people smirk nml ogle, uud whisper ami whim per, nml sneak mid stumble, nnd llutter mid fumble, nml blunder Into what they call love; expect to get whatever 'they like the moment they fancy It, nnd nro continually In danger of losing nil the honor of life for a folly, nnd nil the Joy of It by nu accident." Hut thou Htuklu was prejudiced. The more familiar peopl.' can become with the beauties of nature, the more freely they can become acquainted with the masterpieces of art, the oftetier tlielr eyes meet with beautiful streets, beautiful architecture, parks, pleasure grounds, museums and nil the various forms In which beauty resldiw, the more responsive will they be to Its si lent Influence, mid the more discrimi nating will bo the taste with which they will view It nnd Judge of It.
