Heaven knows who 1, them or how they get into the tcrle. They comzne from both the East and from the West. S l etonW why many of them are not o w srtt the sending is that, to men who have any knowledge at all about mln ii s atters, they are nonsense-they gaM athing. But the tenderfoot world a tlty feeds on these dispatches, Stb h serve, constantly to fire the imagiRation of those who, because they Utahe nothing about mining, imagine that, asnes there is gold in Alaska, all t bhave to do is to go there, pick it tp and be etch. TWe sslme of the stuff that has been 4e seed ft to be sent to the press of the enetry by wire, within forty-eight hetse, for instance. One long dispatch, adel Vancouver date, says that "It is t parted that a great gold discovery has been made on the American side of the 'ukon." A man named Behnsen writes to his brother that out of the crevlk'es he and his friends picked up $50,000 in one day. The brother is urged to sell business or give it away and come with ten men. The Behnsens "are said to be reliable." This fishy in jarb ttidn may not prompt Behnsen's b tber to give his business away, but it will start up hundreds of men who hve the erase and who want to be lured by Just such stuff; yet every sane al Lkaows that, a thousand to one, the Swhole story is a fake. [ thit later the press service brings a fa ge from Washington-the depart i'stts there are being well worked for e purpose of keeping up the crame. TWip dispatch quotes an officer who has twersed the interior of Alaska and 'has I practical knowledge of the Smlttry." This gentleman testifies that Sthere are undoubtedly large deposits of gold in Alaska. rivaling those of the British Northwest territory." He "no S edS excellent mineral indications." The ssociated press telegram makes him say that he "discovered a true fis sue vein of quarts eight feet in diam eter with well-defined casing rocks," aid that this quartz "evidently c~on t lnedl metal."

Is behalf of this member a charge "gsat Bolce was made. It became Smpdrtant to find Boice. but he was not alland. Some of the Hanna state sen aota did what they could to let all inrettrs relating to an investigation sxg. Finally, the hunt for Boice was aiarted In New York-that city is his %e. He was not found. He was Ia abarge of an apartment house in a fashIonable part of town. Nobody I tIbe house knew where he was, btt t5ga was trouble at once over financial g·fent involving Boice and some of is nwaghbors. oiee has been found and his move\ Smits have been traced. After his .. iiQt to Cincinnati, he had a conf-erenn, Abner McKinley,. the pr,rsiae1t's W. B, $arders, of clev elarnd, is Hanna's lawyer. C. C. Shayrn. ý w York politician, a hi' it a rich merchant and who also is one of the president's intimate friends. Two days later Itoice left. He has been found in Canada, and he says he intends to re main there for a time. He has talked some; he says that Shayne paid his expenses to Ohio. Shayne, before the discovery of I oice in Canada, was un willing to admit any particular knowl edge of the purpose of the Bolce trip to Cincinnati. He says, now that it was expected that Tloice would swing the Cincinnati Commercial Tribune for Manua, besides controlling the silver republicans in the Hamilton county delegation. in other words, Mr. Shayne admits just enough to show that Ioihe could tell a very interesting story if he would only take the public into his confidence far enough to relate all that he knows concerning the methods used to secure Mark HIanna's election to the senate. L AST week brought the queen's speech, but in it was no part of the information retspecting England's relations to the Oriental row, about which a large public~ has been curious. England has coniplircations in Africa and C'hina which h\ve' been the subject of endless gossip; it satisfied all the needs of the situation for the queen to say that "my empire" is in good shape all around, Indeed, the factfthat the queen's speech wai colorless, with out information and withouit suggestion, is one of the recurring proofs that in the government of Great Britain the royal family is useful in a decorative way, but of no account for any practi cal purposes. But, really, one cannot help thinking that it was unkind of the queen to omit from her speech all reference to the Wolcott commission. In the opinion of Mr. Wolcott, that commission was one of the leading London matters of state for the period covered in her majesty's speech. In his December message President McKinley hinted that there may yet be something for the commis sion to do. There's nothing from Lon don to indicate that on the other side this notion is entertained. They're After Quay. E VEN in Mr. Quay's state things are not looking altogether bad for silver. Pennsylvania is cer tain to witness this year t rending of the republican party; the preliminaries to that process have already been ac complished. Evidently the Pennsylvanians who are sick of the Quay machine have profited by what happened last year in New York. Quay has worn them out just as Platt wearied those who finally took up arms against himn. They think in Philadelphia that they can wreck Quay's state machine as effectively as the Manhattan mnugwum pa wrecked Platt's, and they are up and at it, with newspape' 'a¢ac~kiai of republlican as well as of Independent tint that gives promise of at sensational tight. in Penn sylvania. Just now the organized opposition to Quay is waiting on John Wananmaker. W\hat hats beIone known as the Bourse conft'rence stelected him as candidate for governor and if he says he'll run the aggressive a\''t paiign will begin, the expectation being that WVanamaker's leadtership will make sure the capture of le.gislative' districts enough toi itnsure Quay's los iof f the senato rsal ip. Of course. Mr. Quay will light to the bitter end, as P'latt did and, as in Platt's case. under the delusion that he Is invincible. Really, it looks at the outset as if Quay has a harder game than Platt had. The Pennsylvania up rising has its inspiration in better men with better motives than was the ease in New York. In any event. l'ennsyl vania elects a governor, several other state officers, thirty congtre'sstmenl l and a legislature this eyear. atl thl legislature will elect a. frederai tenllatol. Tihe Ptenn sylvania decntceratic, organization is in the hands of men who are loyal to the Chicago platform. Tihe situation in\ ites democratic activity. Pennsylvania's delegation ill the pres ent congress includes onlly four denmo crats-two of these are gohlibugs. c Mr. Ermentraut, who lives in Allentowin, and Mr. 1lenner, lwhlose' district includes the let tysburg hattlle grtundll, are forll free coinage".

All Pennsylvania is arous ci over the conduct of that stat:.' capitlcl 'oll missiton.

The commission appar ently doesn't fild itself disposed to be bound by anything or by anybody. It is going ahead with plans in which Pennsylvania sees millions of expense and years of building. Even if the con tracting now proposed is made within the $50,000 limit, the result will be a mere wing of the building which can not possibly furnish the quarters called for in the itemized specification adopted by the legislature. In what is- going on the Pennsylvan ians discover another Albany state house, which was started away back in Samuel J. Tilden's time and which, un finished to-day, represents a cost of more than $22,000,000, whereas New York expected to do something mag nificent, and could have done it under honest management, as Connecticut did, for $5,000,000 as an outside figure. For that matter, the Pennsylvanians are not obliged to go away from home for warnings. A big, meaningless pile that attracts the attention of the visitor in Philadelphia is the so-called new city hall. It was started a genera tion ago; it will not be finished in years; It was to have cost about $4,000.000; it has cost $19,000,000; it can easily be made to cost $10,000,000 more. The strange part of it is that Gov ernor Hastings, the Pennsylvania press and the public in that state appear to be helpless. As far as the commlssion is concerned, it seems to be without de fenders in the press, yet the four men are going ahead with preliminaries that are a reckless disregard of law. The governor himself says that the mem bers of the commission have accepted plans and prepared specifications for a structure -hich will lack many of the essentials \quired by the law, and which is cle rly intended to be such a monstrosity that the next legislature will feel obliged to submit to additional appropriations of several millions and grant authority to go on with work not contemplated by the existing law. It is deliberately intended to get the work in such condition that the state cannot very well escape. Of course, it is not in order to bring any comparison of the Pennsylvania commission with the Montana commis sion. That is not intended; it would be entirely unjust, because the Montana commission is not yet fairly at its work, and the presumption is that it is going to do right. Yet, even then, the people of Montana may be par doned if they betray a nervous interest in this matter. They spent tens upon tens of thousands of dollars on one capitol commission-money enough to have lifted the walls well toward a roof; to show for it the state has a hole in the ground that will not even serve as a cellar for the structure now contemplated. A Day at the Zola Trial. ARIS, Feb. 12.-Th usual crowds and demonstrations attended the Zola trial to-day. The court house was surrounded by eight squa drons of cavalry and two regiments of infantry. The judge ordered a gatling un stationed at his right hand side lland announced Ithat the honor and dig nity of the court would he preserved. TM. Latborite, (outlsel for Zola, asked the court to request the galleries to refrain from raining down peanut shells, paper wads, anathemas and to mato calns on the head of his client. The court peremptorily denied the mo tion and informed Lahorie that he would order the sergeant-at-arms to stave in his head with a cuspidor at his next offense. M. Henri was recalled. Henri said that on the morning of the last day of the l)reyfus trial he, Henri, had mut ton chops and eggs for breakfast. The eggs were fried. Asked if the eggs were tutrned over or straight up. Henri declined to answer on the ground of professional secrecy. "I will not tol erate your catting suspicion on my evi dencel'" hl shouted execltedly to IA orl'e. Two hundred students marched down the center aisle crying "Vive I'Armle" alld "('Cns.puez Zola." The court, pale with passionl, ordered the guards to do their duty. The guards., hurritedly wrenching pclikets from the railnllllg enclosing the juroers, resolutely beat ine thel skull of an aged fe'male capple vender, besides c(racking four of Zolt's rihs and a water pitcher. The presiding judget warned Zola that if this ,cc'·urred again he would ie' conlmpelled to resort to extreme mea sures. The military was reinforced by tw fire engines, and the hose was turned on u me. Dreyfus' black-and tItl1 dog, Gyp. The next witness. Mlle. Marie Celes tin, froml the Theatre Imperial, testi fled that she had been introduced to tDreyfus cby M. liitchie one night in beox D. Dreyfus was accompanied by a large, portly., geood-natured jag, with whollml he seemed to he oen terms of great intimacy. The jag was c'onstant ly pcresent dulring the' interview. which consisted of one cold bot. for which L)reyfus paid live solid silvcr plunks. A1. labuhorie' asked the \\ittness if she had ever seen the jag since'. Mile'.

M. Laborle called the attention of the court to the fact that a gang of kids in the left gallery were attacking Zola with pea shooters. The court said his patience was exhausted and fined La borne 200 francs for contempt. By re quest the Jurors and barristers united with Mile. Celestin in that grand, sweet song, "The Temperature Will Rise in the Venerable Municipality This Evening." "Tache sans tache," said the court. "Rien n'est beau que le vrai," re sponded Mile. Celestin. "Letergeaux, Gallagher! Conspuez Zola!" shouted the populace. (Up roar.) M. Picquart addressed the jury. He regretted that he had left his dancing pumps at home. But he came not here to hit the can-can. France was pass ing through an hour of pieril. Men's passions were inflamed. The honor of the army had been called in question. if any gentleman of the jury had any chewing tobacoo, would he be so kind as to oblige him? The jury bespoke the clemoncy of the court and requested that the sercnlet at-arms be instructed to rush in q cal. of absinthe. The jarring of the 1Uld4'. ing had unfortunately knocked the last,: can off the window sill into the street, causing the precipitate flight of the eighteen squadrons of cavalry and four battalions of infantry, who had mis taken it for a dynamite bomb. The court granted, the order and in structed the clerk to charge up all ab sinthe bills to the Dreyfus estate. The honor of France was as resplendent as the sun, and it should never be said the citizens of the republic could not get justice and absinthe in the courts. "Liberte, fraternite, egalite, ab sinthe! Conspuez Zola!" yelled the populace. "You bet your sweet life!" replied the presiding judge. M. Spielmann, the next witness, tes tified that he had been Dreyfus' physi cian and surgeon. During the Dreyfus trial, Dreyfus complained of a ringing in the ears, and he, the witness, applied a mustard plaster to the calf of his left leg and cut out his vermiform appen dix, after which Dreyfus sustained a slow and painful recovery. Asked if he had not examined Esterhazy for life insurance, and sounded his lungs with a nickle-in-the-slot machine, the wit ness refused to answer. Later, how ever, plielmann admitted that to the best of his information and belief M. Laborie was a sphacelated liar and had congested Lancer of the cerebrum. General Ravary, the next witness, testified that he refused to testify. General Perrieux, General Warreneux, Major Maginnisique and (Colonel San dersus took the stand and corrobo rated General JRavary in all essential particulars, and court adjourned until Monday. As he left the court room, the popu lace made another demonstration by dragging M. Zola in the gutter four teen blocks and flinging him into the city garbage dump. The Zolaists fear that there is a concerted effort on the part of the departments of war and justice to cater to the passions of the mob and give M. Zola Ic grand razzle dazzle. Personal. It is reported that the author of "A Son of Israel'" is Mrs. W\illard, the wife of the actor. The hook deals with high and low life in Russia. lSenator George Turner of Washington be'gan hits political career 20 years ago in alabama. and at that time General Wal ker. who was the first secretary of war to the confederate states. said that Tur ner was the most brilliant young lawyer in the state. Apropos of the action of the Kentucky legislature in defining the duties of Sen ator Lindsay it is recalled that the legis lature of the same state undertook to ad monish Henry Clay I:i years ago. \hen Senatltor t'lay received the resolutions of instruction from the legislature he said: "The legislature of my state assumes to commaltnd me how I shall perform my duty as a senator in congress. I refuse to obey,. and 1 will go back and instruct them as to their duty at home." And he did. In a recent speech in the South Caro lina senate Senaitor Aldrichl remarked: "I once saw a n.an Illrst at a prayer meeting tcleldentally." "Was my friend at a prIny er neetting by aeetldent?" Inguirt Slentia tor Hlenderson. "The nltxt time I esavi the mantl he ais playing lsoker."'' ntinettle Senator Aldrich, not noticing tlte@inter ruption. "Was Imy friend accidentally at the poker games" pit in a third senator. "Yes, accidentally." replied Senator Al drich. "'as I didn't know how to play, and second. I was bItrke." Weak, Tired, Nervous Liver and Kidney Troubles and Pal pitation of the Heart-Appetite Poor and Could Not Sleep. "For nearly 10 years I have been troubled with my liver and kidneys and palpitation of the heart, and was under ti e doctor's care most of the time. I could not lie on my left side. My appe tite was poor and I could not sleep. In January the grip confined me to the house. I was very low and was attended by the very best physicians I could get. It seemed as though nothing would help me. In March I began taking Hood's Sarsaparilla. In less than a week I could get a good night's sleep.
