The »*«» and the isms are engaged in a competitive trial for numerical supremacy. The President yesterday sent to the Sen ate the nomination of Hon. Wm. B. Horn blower, of Hew York, to be Associate Jus tice of the Supreme Court. In the opinion of a large proportion ol the American people, it is little Esthers father rather than her herself that has come unto the kingdom for such a time as this. Ex Senator Henry U. Davis and Govern or MacCorkle appeared before the ways and means committee yesterday and argued in favor of maintaining the present tariff on coal. ^ ^ Brother Morrow, of the Advocate, calls the editor of The Free Press a “gold bug” —because, perhaps, we issue a “gilt-edge' paper. We are pleased that he makes no effort to demonetize us by thus denomina ting us. A pertinent paragraph : The Morgantown yev Dominion says, “Democratic editors ought to be able to vent their spleen upon the opposition, instead of upon prominent Democrats. It might not be so satisfactory, personally, but it would be more beneficial to the party at large.” Morrow is such a confirmed silvente that we rather Imagine that if he could get on the good side of St. Peter and be allowed to enter the pearly gates he would object to the golden streeta and appeal for some chauge in the pavement. Why, be would even oppose the golden-rod at a national flower. _ ^_ It takes a bushel of wheat to buy two pounds of coffee now. I hats the Democ racy ot it. Two years ago a bushel of w heal would have purchased two pounds of coffee and a shirt besides. That was the RepuWi* can ism of it — Wetton World. A year ago wheat was only three cents higher than to day, and coflee now as then. If the Republican got a shirt thrown in—a three cent one—it was about as good as be was entitled to. It ir.ay be of interest to farmers to note that Mr. Wilson has granted permission to a delegation from Bermuda to be heard be fore the Ways and Means Committee. The Bermuda islands belong to great Britain, and produce great quantities of potatoes, onions and other vegetables. Farmers should by all means vote 'o keep the Dem ocratic party in power.—Martlntburg Herald And, we understand, the aforesaid Ber muda delegation contended that the foreign er paid the tax. We don’t see any good reason for Republican complaint of the representative* of the Bermuda oaioo. Senator Faulkner last Thursday offered his proposed amendment to the bill for the repeal of the Gherman act, providing for coinage of silver at the rate of $3,000 000 a month up to an aggregate of $800,000 0U0, and for the retirement of all notes of de nominations less than $10 except the legal tender greenbacks, substituting for them gold and silver coin. Th«* present aggregate of silver coin is $015,000,000, so that the in crease under this amendment would be $185,000,000 ; and under its provisions there would be no more purchases of silver bul lion until all the sefgnoiage and bullion now in the Treasury, amounting to $53,000, 000, had been coined. — • ■ ■- ■ ♦- -- Pt>ssibly it was a little injudicious for Democrats in Congre-s to precipitate a fiuht over the federal election laws at this time, instead of waiting until some settlement of the financial question should have been ac complished. We rather think they have made a mistake. But whether thev have or not, the intimations of R publican leaders, amounting to threats, that the repeal by Congress of the election laws will bring about the failure of the needed financial legislation, are utterly unpatriotic and in defensible. The threats probably amount to nothing more than a bluff'; but if they shou d be carried out it would not be the first time, by a great many, that the grand old party has subordinated or sacrificed the public welfare to partisan interests. inis issue ot I he r kee tress it numotr one of volume eighty-three. We don't want to blow our own horn unbecomingly* or to make claims that would not be approved by the judgment of our readers, and it would probably be too much to say that The Free Press has taken a new lease of life or im proves with age, is fresh as sweet sixteen or good as old wheat, or anything of that kind ; i but we think it will not be inconsistent with modesty or truthfulness to assert that it re ports local events with reasonable fullness and accuracy, denies its space to what is in jurious aud degrading, gives iu support to what is honest and elevating in local life and in the affairs of State and N.itiou, and ia everlastingly right on all political matters, j *We might he excusable, as the Supreme Court of the United State* has a Hornblow- I er by appointment of the President. Editor Gallaher took the early train Mon ] day morning for Washington. Times must I be getting pretty hard on “Alt. Parvo” when friend Gallaher can get up so early. Hard times will finally bring all these gold bugs to time.—Farxert' Advocate. Ye*, the editor was up in time to take the 7 o'clock train. What kind of a farmer editor mu«t it be that considers that hour early ? The editor of The Free Press de- [ nominated a gold-bug is good. Only a few days ago the silverite editor of the Advocate, ' by some inscrutible operation of Providence, or the Spirit of Darkness, came into poeses aloo of a check on one of the town banks and demanded gold! It was promptly forth coming, and he was so much elated by the possession of it that be couldn’t resist the temptatiou to exhibit it a* a souvenir of; journalistic success and as an ornament to the palm of a hand that he would wont make the innocents believe was horny from 1 contact with the plow handle and unrequit- . el because silver bad been demon cured. 1 The Cherokee Strip, Oklahoma, was open- j ed to settlers Saturday. It is said that 150,- j 000 people were waiting on the border and i the opening, according to press di-patches, was attended by scenes of the wildest ex citement. The signal was given at own announcing the passing of the title of the land from United Mates Government to the bonnier* and a race such »s never was wit nessed before and will never be seen again, was begun. On the lines in the vicinity of ' the various border towns the boomers had gathered in great numbers. As far as the eye c*>uld reach in either direction could be seen men mounted and in wagons and on f.K>t closely packed together, making asolid column two hundred feet or more wide iu ibe middle and tapering away to a mere streak of black in the di-tance. When the column broke at the filing of a single gun confusion reigned everywhere. So closely were the contestant packed together that the start was a hazardous one. Horsemen were unseated, wagons overturned and pe destrians pioairaled. In the lace nnuy were injured and some were killed. Of the latter some met death by accident and two were murdeied. 1 he details of the crimes are not known but the dead bodies, one stabbed and the other shot through the head, tell the manner of their death. Many dead horses hive been found on the prairie. Some died of over exertion; some were killed by falling in the race and others, re ceiving broken limbs in the rough prairie, were shot by their owners. Four of the new town sites have a population estimated at 5,000 each. Others boa-t of populations ranging from 10.000 to 13.000. It «s esti I mated that 100,0u0 persons settled in the strip. Reports of crimes resulting trora the settlement of the laud are few. The centennial of the laying cf the cor ner-stone of the Capitol at Washington was celebrated Monday. A handsome parado I of military, firemen, societies and orders preceded the ceremonies, escorting the I President from White House to Capitol — | The crowd was immense—as large as that gather* 1 at any presidential inauguration, ;inu iue w frame* Bishop Paret of the Protestant Episcopal Church opened the ceremonies, and after a short speech by .Mr. Lawrence Gardner, of Washington, President Cleveland was introduced and made a characteristic ad dress. He afterward introduced the other speakers. The oral ion of the day washy Hon. William Wirt Henry, of Virginia, grardson of Patrick Henry, and was an ex haustive review of the origin and growth of our institutions. Mr. Henry's voice is not strong, and his words reached only a small part of the great multitude before him.— The Senate was represeuted by Vice Presi dent Stevenson, the House ot Representa tives by Speaker Crisp, the Supreme Court by Justice Brown and the District of Col umbia by District Commissioner Parker, each making an appropriate address. The speaking was interspersed with selections by the Marine Band and "The 8»r-Span geld Banner.” the "Te Deum," "The Heav ens ar*» Telling” and "America, by a mag nificent chorus of fifteen hundred picked voices, accompanied by the Marine Band. It is noticeable that the proposition stib milted by Senator Faulkner, of West Vir ginia, to increase the silver coinage until it shall have reached a fixed limit ol f800, 000,000, is received by the press of the country with respectful attention, if not in all ca-<es with approval. Mr. Faulkner enjoys the confidence of the ijenate and country as a man of the utmost integrity ol motive and fairness of purpose, and were it not for the fact that the administration and the Senators who favor its policy are opposed to any legislation that may savor of concession or compromise, his plan would in all probability elicit favorable consideration, if not in some modified form, ultimate adoption. The Senate contention may come to eoucwiu.1 or compromise yet, however. It may coine to nothing, and concession or compromise on any reason able basis were better than that. The ob jection to Mr. Faulkner’s amendment lies, of course, in its provisions for iucrea-ing the silver burden. Its merit consists in fixing a filial limit atid to that extent re lieving the situation of its uncertainty.— Wathiitgton Poit. The storehouse ot Mr. James M. Billniyer, at Vanclevesville, in this county, was bro ken open and robbed on Wednesday night of last week. Mr. Billniyer states that his loss will exceed one hundred dollars. Tiie wholestockof goods was turned upsidedown and moat of it strewed over the door. Mr. Billniyer has beeu quite unfortunate during the past few years. His store has been twice robbed and he was once sand-bagged and badiv used up by robbers in their at tempt to lute his store. We are informed that some of the young rascals who were sent to the penitentiary for the last robbery of this store before this one are out and at their old tricks. Last Wednesday night the robbery of the store of Mr. U. D. McKee, located just across the r<>ad from Mr. Bill myer, was also attempted, but their attempt was unsuccessful.—JJartinsburg Statesman. The Washington Post last Thursday pub lished the following paragraph : “Chairman Wilson, of the Ways and Means Committee, has been the recipient of a patriotically useful and ornamental walking stick from an unknown admirer The curiosity is of white maple, carved about with most won derful designs, likenesses of Grover Cleve land, Adlai Stevenson, the Chairman him self, and the great American eagle on the wing, all embowered in a chaos of Star Spangled Banners suggestive of Bourke Cochran's |*eroration. A gold head tops the wooden curiosity. The stick came to j the committee room housed in a wooden i box, which bore the post mark of Deer ( Lodge, Mont.

Suppose we stop howling ‘‘hard times. The cry has become monotonous and, as a matter of fact, it isn’t true any longer, even if were ever justified.

From the New York Morning Advertiser: “ Postmaster General Bissell is looking about for the right kind ot a man to take the place of Lowrie Bell, Second Assistant Postmaster General.

The Seattle (Washington) Prett-Rms contains the following: ' A singular marine monster that is now attracting unusual attention as a “What is it ?" is to be seen at the Denver market. It was caught in the northern waters of Queen Charlotte Sound, and the scientists and oth ers versed in such matters who have seen it are unable to classify it among aquatic spec imens, though a conchyliologist would probable find it to be sui generis; but what ever its scientific place may be, it is deeply interesting to examine this rare and myster ious monster of an unknown species and age that so seldom leaves its submarine re gions as to come within the reach of man. Its length is fully six feet and at a distance presents more the appearance of a gigantic eel or snake than a fish. It is dark brown iu color and wedge shape in form, tapering gradually from the head to the tail which is flat and evidently very muscular. The head is short and narrow, with widening jaws on the bulldog order. It has long, sharp teeth, or tusks, in the upper and low er front jaw, evidently used to tear with, and behind these, triple rows of molers, or grinders, fixed, not on the sides of the jaws, but in the middle of the upper and lower jaws, indicating that the thing evidently lived on shell fish and crushed shell and all between these powerful looking molers. It was caught by an Indian on a halibut hook and made such a vicious fight that it broke the sides of the canoe before the frightened Indian succeeded in hammering it to death. The oldest of the Indian fishermen could give no idea of the nature of the fish, and none like it had ever been seeu or heard of by any of them and its capture aroused their superstitious nature, and many were firm in the belief that a submarine god had been sacrificed which would forever act as a hoodoo on their future fishing operations. The present specimen will be sent to some Eastern museum. .4 Real Castle in the Air. Mr. Toblansky, the engineer, is starting a company for the introduction of a novel feature at the Antwerp exhibition which is lo be held uext year. It is to consist of a raft with an area of about twenty square yards, and constructed of bamboo rods and steel and aluminum tubing, on which a palatial restaurant is to he erected, and the whole suspended in mid-air at an altitude of 500 yards by means of captive balloons. An ingenious combination of anchor cables will hold this “aerial castle” in position, and effectively prevent any oscillation, even in the strongest gale. Two smaller captive balloons, each to carry eight or ten persona, will serve to convey visitors to this floatiug island und back again to terra firma. Each of the larger balloons is fitted with a silk tube, through which, by means of an automatic arrangement, a fresh Bupply of gas is obtained when required. Electric lamps of intense brilliancy are fitted to the raft for the purpose of lighting the exhibi tion grounds." The entire fabric can be brought down to the ground in ten minutes by means of steam winches.—he Put riot*. ■ ♦"* Once an amusing story was told me by a South sea trader, writes Mrs. Robert Louis Stevenson. He had been in the habit of carrying all sorts of tinned meats, which the natives bought with avidity. Each tin was branded with a colored picture—a cow for beef, a sheep for mutton and a fish for sar dines. It happened that the firm who furnished the mutton thought it a good plan to change their labels, that their goods might be more easily distinguished from others. The mark chosen was a red dragon. The natives came with their copra to trade as usual. The new tins wore shown them, but they recoiled in horror and gave the trader to understand that they had had some religious instruction and were not to be deluded into eating tinned devil. The trader was forced to eat his stock ot mutton himself, for not a native could be persuaded to touch the accursed thing. In the United Slates Senate on Thursday Mr. Faulkner offered an amendment to the repeal act, which was read and ordered printed. It provides for the coinage of sil ver dollars, not less than $3,000,000 a month, at present ratio of 16 to 1, out of sil ver bullion purchased under the Sherman act, to be a legal tender. Also, for the monthly purchase of sufficient bullion for the coinage of two millions a month, in quar ters, halves aud dollars; further purchase and coinage to cease when the aggregate of $800,000,000 is reached. In the Senate yesterday Mr. Voorhees appealed to the silver Senators to agree up on n date for a vote upon the repeal bill — Not receiving a satisfactory r*»ply, lie gave notice that to day he would ask the Senate to hold longer sessions in order to conclude the debate. Mr. Mills made a strong speech in favor of unconditional repeal. In the Hou->e the Heuublicans continue to filibus ter to prevent the introduction of a bill to repeal federal electien laws.
