ttfccnlly the London Chronicle pub
lished a story to the effect that a
stroti): London syndicate had sent to
the I'tiltcd States government through
Consul Oeiicrnl Osborne an offer to
purchase the t'nlou I'licttlc ttutlrond.
It was part of this story that on the
strength of this offer our government
was expecting to realize at least !(.
ikmmmki and perhaps El 1.000,01)0 or
Having regard for Its reputation for
truth and veracity, the London paper
prints this story "under reserve." Ami
It docs well. The statement sent out
from Washington two or three days
ago that the government was going
to get $5,000,000 more than It had ex
pected suggested that there was a ri
val bidder concealed somewhere and
affords a certain support to the Lou
don tale.
Hut It Is not easy to believe that our
Washington ottlclals really have any
hope of getting as much as $00,000,000
on the government's Junior lieu. If
they do get It they will have reason
to be happy.
Senator Mark A. Ilannn Is expected
In Chicago to attend the Marquette

other politicians of national note and
members of the Kcpiibllcau National
This will be the llrst visit of the He
publican chairman to the city slncu
the campaign closed, and In conse

by men who want ottlces and are anx

ranged to take place between Senator
Milium, National Committeeman II. C.
Payne of Wisconsin mid Kxeciitlve
Committeeman 'Charles H. Dawes of
Illinois, and possibly others, at whlcu
questions of patronage will be talked
over. That matter, it Is said on good
authority, will receive more attention
by the national committeemen who
gather here than the various State
campaigns that are now In progress.
There Is nothing particular for the na

with the State campaigns, It Is (mint

"There was a conference between the
clerk and the proprietor of the store,
the upshot being nn agreement to take
the potatoes at the Ihj.v's llgures. While
the potatoes were being unloaded the
farmer himself put In an appearance
and Inquired what they were doing.
Vpoti being told Hint the potatoes had
been sold lit the llgures asked by Ids

by a blank sight, I have' my own

the potatoes.

Some time ago Trustees Kckhurt,

was again on It. and at the same time
his resignation came along. Trustees

the meeting, but all except Trustees

Senator Fornker of Ohio reached
Washington on Saturday morning,
ami vigorously denied the report
which had preceded him that ho had
withdrawn from the campaign In Ohio,
ami had canceled his engagements.
"That Is a characteristic Democratic
misstatement," said Senator Ko raker.
"It was put out by Democratic papers
for political effect, and Is absolutely
without foundation. I expect to leave
Washington on Monday, unit will go
to Toledo, to take up the campaign
work again. My trip to thu Knst Is a
business one, nnd my absence from the
campaign will lie very brief. The cam
paign Is progressing to the utmost sat
isfaction of the Republicans, and I be
lieve there Is every prospect of a Re
publican victory, with large majorities.
The people have received our speakers
cordially and listened with closer at
tention than I had expected. I was
afraid that this campaign, coming on
the heels of the elaborate canvass of
the State last rail, might find the peo
ple listless nnd unwilling to rail Into
Hue to save the State again; but such
Is not the case."
"Are the Democrats making free
coinage of silver an issue'" Senator
Fornker was asked.
"Well, as a matter of fact we are not
paying much attention to our Demo
cratic friends, and hardly know what
they are doing. They seem, however,
to be devoting their attention principal
ly to attacks upon Senator Hatiiia. I
do not think they can possibly carry
the State, and 1 believe that we will
elect the whole ticket ami return Mr.
Haua to the Semite."
Senator Fornker was very Indignant
at the statements that he had gone out
or the campaign. He said the Demo
cratic papers that published them
knew them to be untrue. State Chair
man Mtsii was aware oi ins proposed
trip to Washington, he said, and had
canceled engagements for the time or
his nlweiico only.
