In an article on "Birds of Passage" the Chautauquan says If one desires an explanation for the great mystery of bird migration, there being nothing else that will answer, he will have to accept the theory of hereditary knowl edge, a knowledge of the unfailing stars. The Great Bear and Orion ap peared at the same time In our region, even when the divisions of land and water were very different than they are today. That the stars are the guides of birds agrees with the fact that they fly at remarkable heights, often above the clouds, and that wanderers lose their way when they stray Into clouds and mists. On starlight nights strag gling birds are seldom noticed. When the sky Is overcast, when the night Is dark, but especially when a fine rain la falling, multitudes of traveling birds are heard. They will call often, doubt less for the purpose of keeping near each other; and ofton great numbers of them bound against the windows of lighthouses. Thus Gatke has observed that on Oct. 28, 1S82. from 10 o'clock at night till the next morning golden crested wrens bumped like snowflakes against the lighthouse of Heligoland, and that on the following day golden crested wrens sat on every square foot of Heligoland. Toward the end of the summer, along Into the fall, 'It was not a rare occurrence on dark nights to see, through the light of street lamps, birds flying over Inland cities. The ex perienced observer recognizes by Its call the curlew and the strand-snipe, sea swallow and seagull, occasionally bears even the flap of their wings, But no bird Is visible In the darkness. On dark nights no star? appear; then It Is that the straying bird loses his way. The stars are the most plausible guides to birds In their migrations. But only the future can tell us whether they really serve in that capacity. (SUBSCRIBE FOR TIE k &AZETTE NEW TRAIN THE "KNICKERBOCKER SPECIAL."

DEMOCRATIC JONAH TRYING TO SWALLOW THE WHALE. There Are Now Only Two Parties In This Country: The Popnllet and Republican Democracy Has Been Clevelandlaed People Are In Earneat. While pretending, to lecture their party and threatening a great bolt, the democratic silver papers cannot help betraying the real object of their frlendslp for the Populists. They want the Populists to come and help them save the old party. The Chicago D1b patch is one of the papers delegated for the work of corralling the Populists, and the following extract Is a fair sample of Its advice and policy: "The great growth of the Populist party Is proof that the democratic party has departed from the people. The republican party stands for mo nopoly and the money power. Democ racy must get back Into line with Jef fersonlan principles or It will perish. Its platform in 1896 must be broad enough to include all wholesome Pop ulist doctrines." "Democracy must get back" oh, yes! Democracy Is going to reform It self and do better. Don't you see? It must have a platform that will keep the kickers in the .party and it must be as nearly like the Populist platform as possible, because that is the party the bolters will Join if they leave the party. Then, many Populists once belonged to the democratic party, and it is fair to assume that, having once been bam boozled by the glamour of glittering promises, they can be fooled again. But the Pops have learned some things since beginning their career as kickers. They have learned that the promises of leaders are worthless, and that the people must depend whollly upon themselves Instead of upon poli ticians. What the people promise themselves depends upon their own efforts to ac complish. Let the democratic party perish If It will. Jeffersonlan principles will not per ish, neither will the people perish. Men who believe In Jeffersonlan principles must get together In a party that votes for Jeffersonlan principles. When the party of Grover Cleveland, Carlisle, Hoke Smith, Brice, et al., adopts a Jeffersonlan platform, with gold-bug candidates, the People's party will run men of Jeffersonlan princi ples on the Omaha platform not on mere promises of the candidates, but upon pledges and with Instructions di rect from the people. Then if they are elected and prove rJtlse to their pledges, there Is a grow ing sentiment among the people that such traitors should be met at the trains when they return from Washing ton and hanged to the nearest telegraph pole. The people are getting too much in earnest to be played with. They talk of abolishing many of the offices by which we have heretofore been able to control legislation. They gather in mobs and defy the federal army and militia, declaring that the civil power is greater than the military. The laborers have combined with the farmers to organize a new party foreign to the spirit of the money power, un acknowledged by the great dally press and a menace to our most shrewd poli ticians. They declare themselves In favor of trial by Jury, and Insist on the rabble having a voice In the government They threaten to annull sacred con tracts entered Into by foreign syndi cates for the protection of bankers ond exporters of gold. They talk of confiscating the lands of foreign Investors who have placed their capital In American estates.' They threaten to abolish our charters and franchises, and alter fundamental ly tbe methods of government They are at this time circulating papers, books and pamphlets and send ing forth agitators to inflame our most devoted vassals against our most cher iished means and methods of amassing riches. In every stage of these uprisings and murmurlngs of discontent we have tried to persuade the people to be patient. FROM RESULT OF INTEREST-BEARING In the hope that our plans might be completed, and they would soon see the futility of opposing us. But our ex planations have been answered by re newed efforts to usurp our prerogative of governing them. A people so irreverent and fanatical are unfit even to serve an aristocracy of such glorious wealth as we have built up here in America. We have warned them from time to time of unwarrantable efforts to secure Jurisdiction over us. We have re minded them of our power to crush any act of congress or to quell any strike or other disturbance. vVe have ap pealed to their devotion to party and conjured them by the traditions and precedents of preachers and politicians, to abandon these vagaries, disband their unions and accept the situation in life to which it has pleased God to call them. But they are growing deaf to sermons on humility and desplBe the mysteries of finance. We must therefore take measures to hold them in subjection; if they can not be Induced to submit willingly then we must use force. We, therefore, the representatives of the Bank of England and Wall street, N. Y., owners of the United States, and Joint heirs with Baron Rothschild in the ownership of the earth, appealing to the Supreme court for the constitu tionality of our actions, do, In the name and by the authority of Grover Cleve land and John Sherman, solemnly pub lish and declare that the united money power is, and of right ought to be, ab solute sovereign; and that bankers, trusts, syndicates and corporations are henceforth absolved from all allegiance to any law passed by any congress or legislature of America; and that all political power henceforth shall be held only by the divine right of property. In witness whereof we mutually pledge the standing armies, guns and war-ships together with the gold of all the lead ing nations of the world, whose rulers have adopted the single gold standard. WATSONISMS. Clippings from the Editorial of Tom Wnteon. By the 1st of October the time dur ing which the Rothschild bond-syndicate hired Itself to the government to keep our gold reserve In repair will have expired. Then what are we to dot Rothschild, and among 'em, charged us only ten million dollars to keep our gold reserve In repair from February to October. The time will soon be out, and our gold reserve will need more carpentry. Will it take ten more millions to repair it eight more months? And will it take ten more millions an other eight months after that? We had to borrow the money to pay the first ten millions. We will have to borrow the money to pay the next ten millions. And so on from term to term. What will the end be? e Sixty-seven millions of people, worth sixty billions of dollars, sold out to a dozen or so bankers, and bound hand and foot by a written contract drawn up by the President's lawy-partner! That's the situation. Are you proud of a government which thus sells its people? Are you certain of your future lib erties when you can thus be handed over to the servitude of an Insolent syndicate of bankers? e It needs no prophet to foretell your future. On and after October 1st the Wall streeters will begin to raid your gold reserve once more. The treasury notes of 1890, Issued to pay for silver bullion which bullion tbe law said should be coined in suf ficient quantities to redeem said treas ury notes, will be carried to the treas ury by the raiders. They will demand gold for said treasury notes. The law says they can only demand "coin." Cleveland says that "coin" means gold, only. Therefore the men whom the law contemplated as getting silver dollars in exchange for the notes Issued to pay for the silver, will get all gold, and no silver. Then the government having paid out gold where the law contem plated silver, finds itself short on gold. The raiders have taken out the gold with silver purchase notes. The government having paid nt the 30UNO rONEy. BONDS AND SHERMAN. gold, must get it back again: else our precious gold reserve would shrink. A "shrinking" of our precious gold reserve cannot be thought of without a shudder: a simultaneous, unani mous, and enthusiastic shudder. A shudder of this particular sqrt can only be cured with bonds: non taxable, banking-privilege, Interest bearing bonds. The moment these bonds are Issued the shudder quits. In fact we never knew of a shudder which was more amendable to treatment than the Wall Btreet shudder about our gold reserve. It's like thunder and lightning in a play at the theatre it'll stop when ever it is properly requested bo to do. Bonds having been issued and the Wall Street shudder having been cured, what next? Another raid on the gold reserve, and another well regulated shudder in financial circles duly chronicled by the hireling editors of the old party papers. This shudder, like the other, can ouly be cured by Issuing more bonds to get the gold back once more from tbe raid ers. The government having got the gold back from the raiders, the raiders gath er up another lot of silver-purchase notes and get the gold back from the government again. Every time this game is worked It means a bigger debt for you and your children. It means higher taxes, and darker homes. These bonds are your debts, and the taxes you pay are the profits the raiders have made by hid ing away their wealth where it pays no tax, draws interest from your taxes, and forms a basis for banking whereby another profit at your expense Is reaped. e When will this monkeying with tho gold reserve stop? When will the Government and tho raiders quit playing Into each other's hand? Not till the bonds have been run up to a sum so enormous that your taxes can no longer meet the Interest. To this limit they are going to go. Beyond It they do not care to go. They are not such fools as to kill the goose. The syndicate which would not ap preciate the ownership of Just such a copiously idiotic goose as the American tax-payer would be hard to please. Very hard. When I have the power to levy the freight rate, I can put it so high that I can leave you all the labor and the risk while I take all the profit. When I have a monopoly of Issuing the currency, I can fix such a charge for the use of it, that all the profit will come to my bank, while all the risk, toil and trouble will come to your store. When I have a deal with the Govern ment by which I pay no tax on my wealth, but, on the contrary, derive a privileged Income from your tax, all the fatness of all the land will gradually find its way to my larders, while all the emptiness and all the raggedness and all the hardships will come to you and yours. Is this plain? The Wall Street syndicates occupy precisely that position to-day, and you, by your vote for one or the other of the old parties helped them to get there. Wont you now help us to dislodge them? Wanted More Hon Qnne. The honesty of the Chinese in their business dealings Is shown in the ac tion of Hou Qua, the Canton million aire, who died a few years ago, leaving at least $50,000,000. One of the Chinese firms of Canton failed, owing a great sum to foreigners. Hou Qua got up a subscription and paid the whole Indebt edness. He headed the list of sub scribers with $1,000,000 out of his own pocket, saying at the same time that "Chinese credit must remain untar nished." This Is the same man who, when the British were about to bom bard Canton, unless their demand of $6,000,000 was paid within forty-eight hours, headed the subscription list with the Bum of $1,100,000. "I give," said he, "$800,000 as a thank offering for the business prosperity I have had. I give $100,000 as a testimony of the fidelity of my son, and $200,000 as a mark of the affection which I bear my wife." Hou Qua Is still greatly honored In Canton, and his name 1b synonymous with busi ness honor. 10.000 FEET TO FIT! 120,000 Stock of PL... at Ia than Coat Wo'ro Cloatng OutOilUEO MP.
