THE CHICAGO COIYEKTIQI, OPENING PROCEEDINGS. Speeches of Chairman Jones, Temporary Chairman Thurs ton, John C Fremont and Fred. Douglass. ("iiicaijo, June lf. A strong breeze, that made tlie big stripes of bunting, in w hich the interior of the auditorium was enveloiieil, flap likelie sails of a West India men liantmau in an October gale, nwt'pt over le Michigan landwards this morning. Very grateful it proved to the thousands that from an early hour gathered in front of the great building and gazed longingly upon the dixire through whose portals thev bad no open sesame. Inside the building all was bustle and confusion. The war concert of last night bad interrupted the lalatreof the work-, men, and a good deal in the way of dec orating remained to lie done at daybreak. But the small army of mechanics worked with a will and even-thing but the ar rangement and numbering of the press scuts was completed by 10 o'clock. l"n fiirtunatfly the latter, the really most im portant work, bad been left until the last moment, and greatly to tbeir dismay the legion of correspondents were compelled to wait outside of the barrier and jer mi'ted to fill the air with maledictions t!Hin the management until within a few minutes of the time appointed for calling the convention to order. The delegates themselves were slow in assembling and the same might be said of the visitors. Bet ween the police and the plethora of assistant serjeant-at-arms and other sub ordinate functionaries, as much red tape was brought into use as if the fortunate holders of tickets were aliout toenterthe kingdom of Heaven. Once within the building, bow ever, indignation was quick ly changed into exclamations of delight. It was like a transformation from a bar ren plain into Fairyland. With its myr iails of electric jets in arches, in stars, in diamonds, in spheres, in almost every conceivable design of art, w ith its olios, bannerets, bunting streamers of a thou sand Inn's, the immense interior was a symphony of color, a magnificent sjiecta- cle of the Art decorative. The immense platform was a floral bower. Nothing could lie seen of the front cf the desk, upon which eight years ago descended the gavel that announced the nomination of .lames A. Oarrield.and four years later the success of James ii. Blaine. It was one huge bank of roses jacqueminots, Mareschal Neils, hvacinths, peonies, vio lets and lilies, and it shed a delicious per fume far and wide. The entire tloral work was a contribution to the conven tion from Manager Fred. I.imonse, of the Floral Glen Company, and it has never lieen surpassed. To the right and left the American ting was tiatterned in form of shields, with the top of either end two huge, artistically-arrangiHl tiouquets at tached to arches of smilax, w hich in turn connected with the American flags which entwined, the end pillars, and combined to make the stand an arcadian bower. Pirectly beneath the chair were pict uresof Generals Logan and Grant w reath ed in immortelles, while from the first balcony portraits of all the Republican Presidents, from Washington to Arthur, looked down upon the delegates. ' TUB FHrST AKIIIVAIJI. The New York, Michigan and Massa chusetts delegations, which had lieen honored with tla? front seats, directly facing thesK'aker's stand, were among tlie first to arrive. At VI o'clock, at which hour, so said Chairman Jones yes terday, the convention would be prompt ly called to order, less than half the dele gates were in their seats, while the chairs in the lwtlconies allotted to the guests were less than one-third tilled. In the next five minutes the Western and North wostern ileleirates came in rapidly, but the Southern men,esi)ecially those from Tennessee, the Cait'linas and Mississippi were still laggard, knd left a big hole in the seating sjwc t the left of the chair. The Virginians, Uo, were considerably liehind, and tnanjl ojiera glasses were vainly leveled in .iH-stioning search of the diminutive Maione and the doughty Wise, who head tae rival delegations, t'hauncey M. Depef, with a genial smile overspreading hi" countenance, glided in unoliscjved, and so did Governor For aker. In fact, the mwd either failed to recognize distinguished men, who made their appearance, or tie weather was too warm for enthusiasm to assert itself so early in the day. At 12:25 o'clock th frizzled veteran and first candidate f the Republican party for President, en. John C Free mont, was escorted U the platform by the Sergeant-at-Arnis, and caught the eye of the galleries. .Ie was honored with the first great bust of applause that had len given no far turing the morn ing. ' ! I'.y the time that Tise and Mahone came in the Conventiol was a sea of w av ing fans, Jand they kt the reception which might have falen to them had they observed the ruin of punctuality. Half-past twelve, and tie band galvan ized into life by the fra tie etrorts w hich some of the assistant seretanes had for some time been inakingto attract its at tention, struck up a tutt,but a sign from Chairman Jones at IL':'! brought it to a full stop and the Convation was called to order. j rUMNEOrt NSF.l.WvokKK. Then Rev. Frank Gunsaulos was introduced to lead thi convention in prayer He thanked tl Ird for the intelligence and coiirageinder which the banners of the Republian party had been carried to conques, and prayed that the convention niigH las dominated by good purposes for tlii glory of God and the good of the peVle- Blessings were asked for the leaded of the party and for those occupying igh places in the Administration. " f invoke Thy blessing," said the rewreil gentleman, "ppon tlie great soldier, te captain of our armies, who lies so r to death. Oh, Lord, touch him tenerly by Thy hand. Comfort him by ly spirit and restore him to that Nationriat loves him in full health." This referiice to Sheri dan was followed by a bur of applause which evidently jarred opo the preach- om - SOMERSET, PA., WEDNESDAY, er'g sense of propriety aa evidenced by the grave expression which came over his features as the cheering progressed. Then the call for the convention was read in a ringing tone by Secretary Fess enden. and the references to the tariff, to the protection of American labor, to the accumulation of the surplus the demand for a free, honest ballot and a fair count and the question of the admission to the territories, were all lotidly cheered esjec ially that relating to the tariff. chairman Jones's speech. After the reading of the call for the convention. Chairman Jones delivered an address,which, on account of the buzz and confusion, was heard with dilliculty. He said : The Republican party may well lie congratulated, through its representatives here assembled, upon the auspicious prospect that lies before it. Wise and courageous action by this convention will surely lead to victory in the campaign upon which we are about to enter. There can be no doubt as to which side the great majority of votes will fall, if each party be tried by its record ; if the grand achievements of the Republican party be appreciated, and the utter failure of the Democratic party be understood. The two parties are diametrically op posed to each other. One favors progres sion ; the other retrogression. One lifts up ; the other casts down. Thanks to Mr. Cleveland and his Southern allies, the Democratic party has thrown off the disguise in which it has heretofore fought its battles in the Northern States and has boldly declared for British free trade, and against American protection. This iS-tiou has caused much adulation in cer tain sections of this country, and in all England, which has from the beginning been hostile to the industrial progress of the United States ; but it has fallen heav ily upon the ears of the patriotic portion of the lKimocratic party. IlKl KITS AND FALLACIES. However, we must not exect that this is the end ot dishonest pretenses. Deceit, fallacies and sophistry w ill again be re sorted to and practiced. Therefore, we should have a platform based upon true Republican principles, free from equivo cation and ambiguity and should nomi nate candidates who are the embodiment of these principles. The founders of this Itovernnient saw that it was absolutely essential for self-preservation that the original thirteen states should lie uni ted for protection and defense against alien acts ami influences, as well as for economical and effective Government One of the first acts of tlie Federal Gov ernment was to provide for revenue and for the protection of industrial interests of the country. All our early Presidents from Wash ington to Jackson inclusive, advocated a tariff for revenue and protection. All of Uiegreat statesmen of those day coin cided in the jiolicy. No man of note, who was a lover of his country, down to Jackson's first term, entertained and ex pressed doubts as to the constitutionality or policy of protecting the industries of the I'nited States against foreign compe tition. The tariff question was not con sidered as onecmbracing solely or cheilly the manufacturers' interest, but one which broadly embraced the social con dition of the laboring classes, the mutu al interest of all home producers in the home market, and the country's real in dejiendcnce. The British, who now shout free trade, protected themselves against all competi tion until they were masters of tlie com mercial world, and until they realized that the I'nited States with its great nat ural advantages and by a moderate use of the same means, was becoming a formidable rival. It was only when Great Britain perceived something of the furtureof her American rival that she attempted to regain that control over this country by artifice which she was unable to hold or reclaim by force of amis. After relating tiie history of the alleg ed alliance of the Sou'h with Euglit-h manufacturers under the administrations of Van Huron, Polk, Pierce and Buchan an, Chairman Jones continued : KKCOKII OK TIIK ItEPl lll.it AS PAKTV. The Kepulilii-an party vanquished the IVmocratic party, passed the homestead law, destroyed slavery, elevated the "Mud sills," restored credit, redeemed the coun try and Ptarted it anew on the lines con templated by the fathers. To-day we oc cupy a much higher plane than any oth er people on the face of the globe. The Republican party believes that it is not necessary tr right that we should be re duced to a common level with other na tions, but that we should have tlie full benefit of all our natural advantages and the full enjoyment of our glorious herit age. The logical qonsequences of the theories of the Democratic party would have left this country with but a fringe of population on the water ways. Many of the leading Bourbon Democrats of to day look npon the magnificent develop ments' and the grand improvements of the nation, which are simply labor, ge nius and management crystalized, as a rank, unnatural and unw holesome growth and believe that we ought to go back to the small days of ignorance, sloth and small things as quickly as possible. Through the criminal folly of certain professed Republicans, and by fraud and duplicity on the part of the IVmocratic party, our honored and gallant standard bearers in ISM w ere defeated. Fortunate-. ly for the country, we still have the ben efit of the wise laws passed by the Re publican party, and still have a majority of the Senate of the I'nited States, which majority lias prevented unwise legisla tion. We are again confronted by the Democratic party, the mother of all the evils from which this country has suffer ed, asking for the power to control and direct its future course, aud we find that the same element which first led it astray by its influence and dominated it down to the perilous days of the rebellion is again in full control of its affairs. If a majority of the American voters favor the giving away of the home mar ket, incomparably the best in the world, and the forcing of our people, now the most prosperous and happy on the face of the earth, into competition with and down to a level with the cheapest, poor est and most miserable) of our foreign ri vals, the Democratic reactionary doctrines will prevail. If not, the republican party will resume its authority, and successfully lead this great country, w ith its benefi eent institutions, toward that sublime goal to which all patriots believe to be :set ef ESTABLISHED 1827. its heaven ordained destiny. I have no doubt of the result. : JEX. FKKMONT TAKES TIIE PLATFORM. The old veteran, who in 1S.VJ first car ried - the Republican ' flag toward the White House, and heralded thi triumph which came to Abraham Lincoln in ISM, stood up beside the Chairman with a G. A. 11. button in the lapel of his coat, and as his face apiieared above the desk the audience and the convention alike greet ed him with enthusiastic cheers. When the cheers subsided, Chairman Thurston said : - Gentlemen- of tub O'Sventiox I in troduce to you the old hero, patriot and Statesman, General John C. FreemonL. Cheers. General Fremont a d'd teased the con vention as follows: Mr. Chairman and Gentlemen I am unwilling to delay the business of the convention, and, there fore, I will occupy only a very few min utes of its time, but if 1 fail to respond to this splendid greeting, I should feel that I carry an insensible clod and not a warm, sympathetic heart in my breast. I am sensibly grateful fot your welcome. I am happy and proud td receive here, in this great Nationnl assembly, the wel come given by my frieitds and compan ions of many years, by iny party friends and by the song of the men w ith w hom I had the conspicuous fionor to be asso ciated in our first operrjng campaign in ltviG. Cheers. It rejyices me now to see the party moving firmly forward on its natural ground of advanced opinion and action. I am glad to see it looking upon American interests and American industries from an American standpoint. Cheers. The policy f the party has been a continuous one four years ago I was among the men w ho made the can vass of Michigan with Mr. Blaine. The same policy upon which the jiarty stands to-day was then urged upon the warm hearted and patriotic people of that State by him. If we had lieen successful in that election we should have had a dis tinctive American administration. I trust that this policy, related as it is to the in terests of the people in their daily affairs. will soon bring the party to charge iLself with the solution of tlie labor problem of to-day. Cheers. Success now will pave easily the way to important meas ures and be a continuation of power. This present? election will carry to the successful party the political power of the great Territories which are now awaiting admission. It is not too much to say that the conditions of the country justify the liclief that the result of tlie election will tie favoraUe conclusively to the Republican party. Cheers. Mr. Chairman and gentlemen of the convention I am glad to revive to-day this evidence of your regard. I am hap py to know that it has resisted the tests of time and that it has comedown to me with "all its old-time cordiality. Ap plause. AllllRKSS FWm FKEIt IMH t.LASS. Fred Douglass was here recognized as he came upon the stage back of the shak er's desk, he was introduced by the chair man as follows : (inilh llllil lif l)lC I'UHI e-llttllll 1 llllVe the honor to present to you a man w ho needs no introduction our old friend, Fred Douglass. Cheers. Mr. Ihiuglass Mr. President, I had the misfortune last night to speak to a vast audience in Armory a little below here or alsive here, and broke my voice so that I feel wholly unable to address you any more than to express my thanks to you for the cordial welcome, the earnest call you have given me to this platform. I have only one word to say, and it is this, that I hope this convention will make such a record in its proceedings as to put it entirely out of the power of tlie leaders of the iH-mocratic party ami the leaders of the Mugwump party laughter to say that they see nodill'erence between the Republican party in respect to the class I represent and the leniocratic par ty. Applause. I have great respect fora certain quality that I have seen dis tinguished in the Ieniocratic party. It is its fidelity to its friends laaghter ; its faithfulness to those whom it has ac knowledged as its masters for the last four years. Laughter and applause. They were faithful I mean the Iiemo crats were faithful to tiie slave-holding class during the existence of slavery. They were faithful liefore the war. They were faithful during the war. They gave them all the encouragement that they possibly could without drawing their own necks into the hallcr. Laughter and applause. They were faithful dur ing the period of reconstruction ; they have been faithful ever since. They are faithful to-day to the solid South. I le lieve that the Republican party will prove itself equally faithful to its friends cries of" good, good," and those friends during the war who were men with black faces. Cries of "That's right." They were eyes to your blind ; they were shel ter to your shelterless ; they escaped from the line of the rebels ; they are faithful to-day, and when this great Re public was at itsextreniest need, when its fate seemed to tremble in the bal ance and the crowned heads and the enemies of Republican institutions were saying in F.urope: "Aha, aha, this great republican bubble is about to burst," w hen your armies were melting away lie fore the fire and pestilence of rebellion, you called upon your friends, your black friends, when your star-sjiangled banner now glorious, was trailing in the dust heavy with patriot blood, you railed npon the negro yes, Abraham Lincoln called npon the negro great applause to reach forth his iron arm and clutch with his steel fingers your faltering banner, and they came, they came 2lX),nu0 strong. Loud cheers. Let ns remember those black in the platform that you are about to promulgate and let us remember these black men are stripped of the constitu tional right to vote. Cheers. In the grand standard bearer which you will present to the country leave these men no longer to wade to the ballot box through blood, extend over them the ana of this republicand make their path way to the ballot box as straight and as smooth and as safe as any other citizen's. Cheers. Be not deterred from duty by the cry of "Bloody shirt." Cheers, Let that shirt be waved so long as blood shall be found upon it Cheers. A Gov ernment that can give iiberty in its Con stitution ought to have power to protect liberty in its administration. Cheers. I will not take up your time. I have got my thought before you. I speak in be half of the millions who are disfranchis JUNE 27, 1888. ed to-day. Cheers and cries "go on Douglass." SPEECH OF TEPOBAP.V CIIAIRMAS TIlt'BS TOX. Mr. Thurston spoke a follows : '.'frfcairti of tht Cnnrfntinn . I aru deeply sensible of the distinguished hon or you have conferred upon me as the presiding officer of your temporary organ ization. I am also mindful of the grave responsibilities of the position, and if they are successfully met it w ill be due to the continuauce of your generous favor and the bestowal of your loyal assistance. I have no words in w hich to fittingly ex press my heartfelt appreciation of your confidence. I thank yon, gentlemen, not for myself alone, but for that great and growing West which never disappoints the expectations of the Republican party. I come from a state whose vast domain has been larcely appiopriated by the surv iving veterans of theanny of the Re public, under the munificent provisions of the Homestead and Pre-emption laws, enacted by a Republican Congress, and true to tlie hemic recollections of the past, the leaders of the West still march on under the banner of Republicanism. In victory and defeat, in sunshine and storm, in prosperity and adversity, this mighty West retains the courage of its convictions and holds that devotion to principle, though it brings defeat, is bet ter than success achieved by broken vows and political dishonor. We are met in National Convention for delibera tion and conference. The Republican party of the I'nited States relies upon the wisdom of its assembled delegates for such action as w ill insure success. If we are prepared to honestly and fairly meet the supreme issues of the hour w ith a a clear, fearless and ringing declaration of principles, and to nominate a ticket which will commend itself to the loyalty and intelligence of the country, we can grandly win. We enter upon the pro ceedings of this convention prejiared lo sacrifice individual judgment to the w is dom of the majority, and to lay down personal preferences on the altar of par ty success. When our candidates are cho sen we w ill all join w ith heart anil soul in the grand chorus of rejoicing, and the rainbow of our harmony shall give cer tain promise of the glory of a victorious morning in November. When the Dem ocratic party at the close of the last I"res idential election robbed us of a victory honestly and fairly won we patiently waited for the certain coming of the jus tice of the years. We hoped and lieliev ed that 1SSS would right the great Na tional wrong of lssj. Right it not only for the Republican party, but also for tire grand and glorious candidates whose names were the inspiration of that won derful campaign. The infinite w isdom of an All Wise Providence has otherwise decreed. One of them, the citizen-soldier, the warrior-statesman, the Black Kaglc of Illinois, has lieen summoned by the silent messenger to report to his old commander beyond the river.

But, although John A. tagan is dead in the body, yet he lives again in the il luminated pages of his country's most splendid history; lives in the grateful love of a free jieople, w hose union he so gallantly tought to preserve; lives in the blessings of a down-trodden race, whose freedom he so manfully struggled to achieve ; lives in the future song and story of a hero-worshipping world ; and along the highway of the nation's glory side by side with old John Brown, Abraham Lincoln and Ulysses S. Grant, his soul goes marching on ! The other, that gallant leader, thechevalier of Amer ican politics, the glory of Republicanism and the nightmare of Democrats, is seek ing in foreign travel the long needed re laxation and rest from the wearisome burdens of public life and service. With the sublime magnanimity of his incom parable greatness, he has denied us the infinite pleasure of supporting him in this convention. Desiring above all things party harmony and success, he has stepied from the certain ladder of his own laudable ambition, that some other man may climb to power. As his true friends we cannot, dare not commit the political crime ot disobedience of his ex pressed will. We cannot place him at the head of the ticket, but we can make him commander in-chief of the forces in the field, where he will be invincible. 1ILAINE AX l N( Ron NED KINO. And, though James G. Blaine may yet lie our President, yet he remains our un crowned king, yielding the baton of ac knowledged leadership, supreme in the allegience of his devoted followers, hon ored and resiected by all honest and loy al men as the greatest living American, and the worthy object of our undying love. But the Republican party is not left without great men to place upon its ticket. AVe have that honest and expe rienced financier, statesman and Senator from Ohio, and his no less distinguished colleagues from Iowa, Indiana, Michigan and Wisconsin present to us gallant sol diers, while New York, New Jersey, Kan sas, Connecticut and other States offer worthy and favorite sons. From this splendid galaxy of political store we can not choose amiss. Theliepublican party points with pride to the great achieve ments of its past, and offers as an earnest of its future faithfulness an unbroken rec ord of services performed for freedom, union and national prosperity. It is pre eminently the party of protection. It wan bom of the irrepressible desire to protect the slave from the lasii of the master, and to save our civilization from the bliehting curse of its crime against hu manity. It performed the sacred mission of protecting the Republic from secession and disunion, and in the latter time it succeeded in protecting the credit and currency of the Nation from repudiation and inflation. Its platform epitomized, stands for the protection of popular gov ernment on the . American continent; stands for the protection of all itovorn mental and international rights from re striction or invasion ; stands for the pro tection of the life, liberty and projwrty of the individual ; stands for the protec tion of all the immunities and privileges of American citizenship ; stands for the protection of the ballot-box from the crimes of intimidation, robbery and sub stitution ; stands for the protection of American commerce, American manufac ture and American agriculture from de structive foreign competion ; stands for the protection of home invention, home skill and home labor against the free trade heresies which would pauperize and de grade them all j stands for the protection eralcl of the people from the . unjust and op pressive exaction and combination of ag gregated capital and corporate rower ; stands, also, for the protection of both capital and corporation from confiscation and mob violence. And, above all, stands for the protection of the sanctity and haj piness of the American home. It wel comes to our shores the down-trodden and oppressed of every land, but it in- of disoliedience to his will. This evoked sists that the inestimable blessings of j cheers which were several times repeat American citizenship purchased with the ' ed, and accompanied by waving of flags priceless blood of our heroes and martyrs ! and other tokens of exuberance. When shall be extended to those only w ho are in full sympathy and accord with the fundamental principlesof our government and who w ill loyally support the sacred provisions of the Constitution of the Uni ted States. And it holds that Congress has the ower to save American civiliza tion and morality from the leprosy of Asiatic paganism, degradation and con tagion. It maintains that the nation should extend the benefits of free gov ernment to all true lovers of liberty, but it demands that the law of the land shall bo a shield only to those w ho obey it, and that for the Anarchist, the Com munist and the criminal, American jus tice has nothing to offer but the sword. SATISFIED OFFICE-llol.liEUS. The reconstructed Democracy has now been in power nearly four years. Its ad ministration has lieen most satisfactory to those who hold office under it. Its loyalty has received the approval of ev ery enemy of the government The courage of its foreign policy has amused the great powers and pleased every cow ard. Its civil service has lieeu so thor oughly reformed as to delight Mr. Hig gins. Its justice to the disabled soldiers has won golden opinions from those who gave them their wounds. Its financial management has been safe because of its inability to destroy the resulting pros perity of Republican legislation, and its unparaUeled straddle of the tariff ques tion, has lieen a source of wonderment to "Gods and man." It is strong in the imbecility of "Innocuous desuetude," and deserves to live as a reminiscence of promises forgotten and pledges unre deemed. There are those in this land who seem to believe that the mission of the Reptile lican party is at an end ; that the eman cipation proclamation, Appom-itox and the constitutional amendments are at once the monuments of its glory, and the gravestone of its demise. But the work of the Republican party will not be done uutil every American citizen enters into his unquestioned inheritance of liberty, equal rights and justice; until represent ation in Congress is based ujion votes freely counted; until adequate provision has been made for the helplessness and old age of the disabled veterans and widows and orphans of their dead com rades; until those policies of govern ment which insure national and indi vidual prosperity are firmly established, and until patriotism and loyalty are the only qualifications, except fitness, for offi cial position iii the service of the R 'pub lic. MASON AND IUAon's 1,1 XE. There are those in the land w ho insist that the Republican party keeps alive the old-time sectional fi-eling, and that it refuses to " let the dead past bury its dead." The Republican party longs and prays for the coming of the milleniuni of its ho)ie, when in spirit and in truth. Mason and Dixon's line w ill lie blotted out forever ; when fraternal lines, com mon " interests unite us all ; when the whole jieople are found rejoicing togeth er that the inherited institutions of sla very was destroyed by the justice of God; when tiigether with the holy bonds of Union could not be severed ; hopeful together for a mrgniticent national des tiny ; loyal together to a cainmon conn try and to its unc inquered flag. But, when that glad time conies black and white must march side by side in thej broad sunshine of safety, and lie down to peaceful similiters in the un troubled shadows of protected homes. Tlie Republican party turns to the new South with wide ojien arms. It offer; loyal assistance in the devel opment of its agriculture, the opening of its mines, the building up of its manu factories. It proptises to break down the barriers of unpleasant memories, with hope of a new prosperity.. The great dis tinctive issue of the present campaign is the issue of tariff. To the stip-iort of pro tective tariff there w ill rise an overs hel- j ming army of intelligent, thoughtful and j practical men, and the Fast and West, the North and South w ill join hands to- jet her to forever exterminate in this IIe-1 public the pernicious doctrine of free trade. MEMORIES OF I.IMOI.X. As we gather here we rememlier the other great convention held in this city in 1S0O. We rememlier how it was in spired with the wisdom and courage to name the great man of the people ; that Moses w ho led us through the parted wa ters of the sea, past the wilderness of battle, over the Jordan of safety into the promised land. In 1HS4 we were driven j to the wilderness again. IksI give us j the wisdom to find another Moses w ho can limit our wandering to four years j instead of forty. The mighty st is j with us here to-day. It fills us with the j spirit of freedom, spirit and devotion j which breathed into the common dust of ordinary humanity the sublime inspira tion of heroic deeds. Iet us read its les sons rightly and hold its precepts dear. When Roliert Bruce, King of S-ot land, lay ujion his dying bed he requested that hislheart should be taken from his inani mate la-sly and borne by knightly hands to the Savior's eepnlc her. After his death James, Fairl of Ilouglass, undertook the mission, and with the heart encased in a golden casket set npon his pilgrim f i to the Holy Land. On their way thither, himself and comrades were set njion by a great host of Moorish warriors Though they fought with all the valor of mortal men they were borne backwarl ; by sheer f jrce of numbers, and their j overthrow seemed certain. Then Dmg- lass, drawing from his bosom the price- less casket, cast it far out into the oncom- j ing host and cried out, " Lead on, heart of Bruce, we will follow thee!" and the Knights of Scotland, never defeated while following Bruce, pushed forward and won the day. Let this convention find a lHjuglass for i our Bruce. He w ill take the soul of our great leader into the golden casket of hi love, and with it lead ns on to certain and splendid victory.

" The Cheva lier of the American People," etc., caused the convention to go wild. But this was nothing compared with the demonstra tions with which both galleries and floor received the declaration that the party cannot and must not commit the crime the different candidates were named by the speaker. Sherman and Allison receiv the weight of applause, but it was noticed that he refrained from mentioning the name of the soldier Judge, of Illinois. When lie classed the Anarchists with the criiuiual there were expressions of a! pmval.but w hen he said that the admin istration bad "for four years performed its duties w ith satisfaction," the audience rat dumb anil surprised until he added, "to its office holders." The speaker's voice penetrated every nook and cranny of the hail, his attitude was erect, his gestures appropriate, and he deserved in full measure the prolong ed and vigorous applause, which came frjm the vast audience, when the closing words fell from his lips. Oldest of Old Maids. The following description of a model woman, written a!m-t ;;.(hs years ago, is very 'rtini':it to the matrimonial ques tion. " V virt Miis woman w ho can find ?

"Favor is deceit ful and beauty is vain, but a woman that tearcth the Iird, she shall be praised, i iive her of the fruit of her hands and let her works praise her in the gates."

How to Frighten Burglars. n Do you know w bat king of a burglar j alanu I shall have in my house said ' gentleman interested in an electrical ! Lowliest to a reporter. " I shall not Uve i a Kttle bell near my bed to awaken mo if any one opens a door or a w indow. No, sir. I shall have an eighteen-inch gong put up in the center of my bouse, and then connect every door and win dow. If a burglar opens a door or win dow then tlie noise will scare him away at once. Suppose I have a little bell in my room, that w ake me up ; what good does that do? I have to get up, dress my self, go down and drive that burglar off. He hasn't heard the bell, and I might find him, and that's just what I don't want " The kind of alarm I shall have will give the burglar warning that I am com ing and afford him opportunity to leave. I have no desire to fight burglars. I hav no desire to be a hero. I want to scare them olf w ithout running any risk my self. "What burglar would have the impu dence to keepon stealing with an eighteen inch gong striking fifty times a minute? Then, when the danger is over, I can g down .and lock everything securely. What do you think of the scheme?" A Soft Thing. Two old friends met on a train be tween I hi lias and Fort Worth. After the the usual greeting one of them asked : " Isn't Sam Sweedlcpipes living in Dallas?" " Is he a glazier ?" " Ye, he is a painter and a glazier." " He is getting rich fast." "letting rich fast, is he? Running a nionte batik, I suppose." "No, he has got abetter thing than that." "City oiliciai r No, he lielongs to a fire company, and when the fire breaks out he gcs along and wakes up the people with a stick." " I don't see how there is any money to be made in that." "He wakes the people up by tap ping at their windows w -ith a stick, and he manages to break ail the panes of tilass w ithin a half a mile of the lire, and next day he is called on to put them ill again at "si cents apiece. He has got a soil thing of it. He hasn't got a social status, but he is making more money than if he was an alderman." How a Steamer Cot Ice. The United States fish commission steamer Albatross. Lieut. Com. Z. L. Tan ner commander, recently arrived in put, having spent nearly a month in the Straits of Magellan, where large collec tions were made in all branches of natu ral history. Fishes of excellent quality for eating were there seined in great quantities. Vessels passm, through the straits, if supplied with seines, could thus obtain an abundance of fresh food. Camps of "uegians were visited and con siderable ethnological material was o! tained from them for the National Muse um at Washington. In F.yre sound icebergs are usually to lie found flouting, as many glaciers flow into the water there. 'The Albatross ran into this sound and made fast to a Ix-rg for the purpose of getting a supply of ice for her refrigerator. Huge blocks were then cut off and hoisted in until six ton had than been taken aboard. The ice was clear and compact and lasted until the arrival of the ship here. 'annum .Viir . II. mitt.

Mr. Kdward Sodt, in his "Dancing and Dancers." makes the following estimate of the distance actually waltzed over in an evening by a belie of the ball room : "D you, my fair and fragile render.' think you would go six times around a nimlerate sized bull room, say, making a circuit of eighty yards during a waltz? Yes. at least, even allowing for rest. That, then, is 4St yards, if you went in a straight line. But you are turning nearly all the time, say on an average, once in each yard of onward, progress, and the circumference of a circle is rather more than three limes its diameter, which will bring each waltz to over three-quarters of a mile, or, at least, fourteen miles for the eighteen waltzes."

"Sinny," said a gentleman b a little boy who was plaving marbles, "ran von tell me the nomricr ef the hoib in which George Washington lives T' " Never heard of him," replied the boy.
