ators upon any subject."
"It is not necessary," continued Gor
man contemptuously, "to say more of
Buch an incident."
Referring to Stewart's criticisms of
the president, Gorman said he was not
the mouthpiece of tbe president. "His
patronage I know nothing of; I care
nothing forJt; I neither have it nor
wish it; buff there is no man who has
been more careful in using the great
power of his office than the present
president. If he may be criticised at
•11, it would be proper to say hs has
scarcely done bis party justice." [Ap

Aldrich (Rep.) of Rhode Island de
nied tbat he bad at any time undertaken
in any conference to represent anybody
but himself.
Wolcott said he had carefully ab
stained from the slightest reflection by
inuendo or otherwise upon the senator
from Maryland. "I should not rise to
reply to his insinuations were it not
that be has seen fit to suggest tbat I
listened at committee room doors."
"I did not say that," replied Gorman.
"I said if be has taken his information
from an eavesdropper wbo was at tbe
committee room doors."
Wolcott said tbe senator from Mary
land knew he wonld scorn dishonorable
methods. He characterized as untrue
the statement tbat tbe resolution was
introduced to consume time.
The repeal bill was then taken np,
and Pasco (Dem.), of Florida, ad
dressed the senate in favor of repeal.
Teller then addressed tbe senate in
opposition of repeal. Before he bad
concluded bis remarks the eenate went
into executive session and soon ad
journed. _

The Tucker bill then came up. Law
son of Georgia addressed the house in
support of the measure.
Lawson'a argument was from the
standpoint of states rights.
Daniels of New York, who followed
Lawson in opposition, argued that the
election laws were absolutely necessary
to obtain honsßty and security at con
gressional and presidential elections.
At the conclusion of his speech, the
house at 5:45 p. m. adjourned.

was a hurricane. In tbe sixth both
men landed heavily, bnt seemed fresh
when the gong sounded. Armstrong
woke up in the eighth and wunt for Bar
ber like a tiger, knocking him down.

them apart. Armstrong went for
Barber, knocking him down, and out.
Barber's friends claimed a foul, but it

enson was afraid to talk because he ia a
green backer.
Robinson was re-elected president.
There was a hot fight over a resolution
condemning Senator Cameron's free sil

of tha Northern Pacific.
Milwaukee, Wit., Bept. 27.—Judge
Jenkins, upon application of John A.
Stewart and Edwin H. Abbott, trustees
under the Wisconsin Central mortgaeees
haß appointed Henry F. Wbitcomb and
Stewart Morris receivers of the Wiscon
sin Central company and the Wisconsin
Central Railroad company. Mr. Abbott
says the receivership will preserve the
Wisconsin Central system, prevent de
fault upon bonds, and insure ultimately
tbe full payment of all the indebtedness.
The step was rendered necessary by the
insolvency of the Northern Pacific,

satisfactory terms give the exclusive
benefit of his inventions to all the pres

who will come into tbe same with the
honest purpose of placing the coidage
industry upon a permanent and profita

organization was appointed, and the
meeting adjourned.

A Lneld Financial Statement.
Editors Hi-bald : It is ■•id tbat tbe
proposed amendment of Senator Faulk
ner to the repeal bill for the purchase
and coinage of $3,000,000 worth of silver
per month until the total amount of
coined silver in the country amounts to
(800,000,000, and the retirement of all
paper currency under $20, baa devel
oped considerable strength.
This ia a strange proposition: but as
with many others which, like scum,
have come to the surface during the
present upheaval, It implies an obliv
iousness of fundamental principles that
is most discouraging, especially as it
comes from a senator who is now called
upon to act npon this grave question
which affects not alone the material
well-being of the people of these United
States, but of the civilized world.
Why should the limit of standard
Bilver money in this country be fixed at
$800,000,000 or at any other sum? Wby
prevent people from using properly
guarded paper reprssentatives of specie
for any sum below $20, if tbey prefer
tbat kind of currency to specie ? Those
are not at all tbe serious questions at
Tbe great, overshadowing question of
all at the present time and throughout
all time is, in view of tbe everlasting
fact that all standards of value perpetu
ally fluctuate or rise and fail, to what
shall tbe unit of value be attached; bow
can ifs inevitable variations be most
effectually minimized?
Our forefathers, with a profound wis
dom that should put their descendants
to shame, attached the standard by free
dom of mintage to the universal masses
al silver and gold at a fixed ratio which,
like tbe great ocean, have a steadiness
of level that mere artificial ponds, de
pending on eccentric supply and de
mand, can never have. The overwhelm
ing floods which flow from great water
sheds, often unexpectedly, into small
lakes, whether natural or artificial of
course are bound to violently disturb
their level, whereas, as was said of old,
ill tbe rivera in the world flow into tbe
sea, and it is not full; in other words,
they do not perceptibly Change its level,
rhe fathers of the republic aimed to
provide tbat we might measure values
oy either tbe silver or the gold dollar,
tied together at a fixed ratio by free
coinage, which would give to eaoh the
identical value tbat the same quantity
}f the universal mass of silver or gold
respectively would have, whether coined
iruncoined. This would give (and did
jive for over SO years) a steadiness to
iur standard of value which has been
altogether unknown during tbe last 20
rears, because our coined silver dollars
have been cut off from ail vital or
automatic connection with silver iv
jeneral, thus thwarting tbe wise and
beneficent intent of the t founders of tbe
republic. Although we have bought
and coined upwarda of 400,000,000 silver
dollars since 1878, those same dollars,
in reality, only constitute an artificial
reaervoir, which ia wholly segregated
from the universal mass; and each and
avery one of tbem have an unnatural
value entirely distinct from their simple
value; in other words, they have been
tied to tbe gold dollar and through tbe
{{old dollar to the universal mass of gold;
and, inasmuch as the burden which has
been thrown on gold as money during
the last 20 years, has been nearly
doubled. The relative value of the gold
dollar has been almost doubled, and
consequently; the silver dollar being
yoked to it, has been .nearly don bled
along with it, tbe daily quotations in the
Herald letterly, of tbe silver value of
the gold dollar (aa well as of the artifi
cial gold value of the ailver dollar), hav
ing ranged between $1.70 and $1.86.
This is certainly au anomalous state
of affairs, and the sooner it is remedied
the better. But the adding of $300,
-000,000 more to our present stock of
standard silver and stopping there, is
not going to remedy the matter. What
is wanted to steady our standard is to
bring it back to a vital connection with
the universal mass of silver and to bring
both gold and silver into vital connec
tion with each other, by tbe legal aud
constitutional right of unlimited coinage
of both metals, as tbat right existed for
more than 80 years prior to 1873, when
that unholy and revolutionary attempt
was made to bedevil our standard by
changing it from silver and gold to gold
alone. The appalling rise of gold since
that date has caused a shrinkage of
values such aa was never known during
any other 20 years since the world be
gave. Let us have done with subter
fuges and straightforward intelligent
methods, get back to first principles.

A Remarkable Banquet Psnt>
One of the most notorious Hungarise
duelists fought hi 3 thirty-fifth duel in
1888 and celebrated the event by a ban
quet, to which only those who could
prove that they had participated in at
least six dueb were invited. There was
a room full of such warriors, some with
faces seamed with scars, others minus
an ear, an eye or with two or three fin
gers missing. Tho most marked of all
was a Frenchman, who had lost his nose
in an encounter with Count Andrassy,
the statesman. There was only one re
laxation of the rule, and that was made
in favor of a lady who had killed her
man. —London Tit-Bits.

Bow tho System of Tipping Has Degener
ated In Many Eating Bouses.
Complaints of the tipping system, or
rather want of system, are growing more
and more common. It ia the opinion of
those who are in the habit of getting'
their meals here and there and patroniz
ing the cafes about town that insolence
among waiters has visibly increased.
Everybody who knows anything about
New York knows what that means—an
exceedingly disagreeable state of affairs.
"The evil ia worse in proportion to the
respectability of the place," says a man
about town. "In other words, the more
expensive the meal tbe more liberal the
tip, and the more insulting the waiters
if it does not come up to their ideas of
what the amount of the tip sbonld be."
I have been making some personal in
vestigations in this line myself and un
hesitatingly indorse tbe above opinion.
I have found that in every instance the
waiter expected a tip whether me had
served well or not, and that this expecta
tion is made so baldly apparent that the
attention of everybody in the vicinity ia
called to the fact to bear unwilling wit
ness as to the extent of your liberality.
Also that too small a tip will subject
you to more pronounced insult that none
at all; that any effort to correct abuse
of this character by reporting the serv
ant is more likely to multiply your bad
treatment than to reduce it.
If the executive clerk or proprietor
does not recognize in you a valuable cus
tomer of tho place, the chances are two
to one you will be received with more
contempt than you got at the hands of
the waiter. No one man in 600 thus of
fended ever complains—he simply doesn't
go back. Most city men and travelers
are not easily offended by waiters. Fa
miliar with the ways of the waiter, they
either pay up or ignore the intended of
fense. It is the sensitive man who is the
more readily blackmailed, or who, re
sisting the levy, feels more keenly the
insolence of the menial.
In my experiments, conducted at six
different respectable restaurants, I found
that the poorest waiters, the men who
gave the poorest service, were the most
offensive. At one place where, at tbe
suggestion of a friend interested in this
class of human nature, we went back to
the same waiter on the next day, there
was such a visible reluctance to serve
ns that we were compelled to call the
head waiter before we could get any
thing to eat. As my rnle is to reward a
servant proportionately for extra service
and attention, and as some of these men
rendered this service and got nothing, I
cherish no hard feelings against them
for the look of cold disappointment with
which they greeted our departure. In
discriminate tipping has made tipping
useless practically, so far as good service
is concerned. It has become merely so
much blackmail, and tbe poorest service
demands and receives the same reward
earned by and cheerfully paid the best.
Men are awful cowards and would rather
be robbed outright than thought mean,
even by a waiter.—New York Herald.
How Professor Blackie Apologized.
Professor Blackie was lecturing to a
new class, with whose personnel he was
imperfectly acquainted. A student rose
to read a paragraph, bis book in bis left
hand. "Sir," thundered Blackie, "hold
your book in your right hand!"—and as
the student would have spoken—"No
words, sir! Your right hand, I say!"
The student held up his right arm, end
ing piteously at the wrist. "Sir, I hae
nae right hand," he said. Before Blackie
could open his lips there arose a storm
of hisses, and by it his voice was over
borne. Then the professor left his place
and went down to the student he had
unwittingly hurt and put his arm around
the lad's shoulders and drew him close,
and the lad leaned against his breast.
"My boy," said spoke very
softly, yet not so softly but that every
word was ''audible in the hush that had
fallen on the ctassroom—"my boy, you'll
forgive me that I was overrough? I did
not know—l did not know!" He turned
to the students, and with a look and tone
that came straight from his heart he
said, "And let me say to you all, lam
rejoiced to be shown I am teaching a
class of gentlemen." Scottish lads can
cheer as well as hiss, and that Blackie
learned.—San Francisco Argonaut.

"Is there a hotel in this town?" I in
quired. 51
"Thar aint," he replied quite to the
"Isn't there any place for strangers to
stop at?"
"Well, yes," he said hesitatingly,
"thar's a boardin house whar nobody but
strangers stops. Anybody that knowed
anything about it wouldn't stop thar."
The drummer sighed.
"I tried it," he said in conclusion,
"and the native was right."—Detroit

Ho Won't mention It.
A gentleman in this city was recently
visited by a justice of the peace from an
adjoining town who wanted to be en
lightened on a point of law. The gentle
man gave the desired information.
When the visitor started to go, he said,
"I am much obliged to you for the in
formation." "Oh, don't mention it,"
replied his informant. The justice by
this time had closed the door, but he
came back and with the greatest sin
cerity assured his friend he would never
say anything about it.—Hartford Cou
Generalship and Epileptic Fit*.
A remarkable historical fact which
has frequently been noticed by scientific
writers, but never accounted for satis
factorily, is that Julius Caesar, Welling
ton, Napoleon and tbe Archduke Charles
of Austria, four of the greatest generals
the world has known, were all subject
to epiloptic fits.

Sensible Points About Tip*.
The greatest abuse of the tipping sys
tem in New York is in the fees to jani
tors and other servants connected with
apartment houses. It has become a cus
tom almost too strong to ignore in some
apartment houses to pay the janitor, bell
boy, elevator boy, etc., certain amounts
every month or fortnight—this without
any regard to whether the servant has
rendered any particular service or not.
The result of this indiscriminate tipping
is quite natural—you get no particular
Not a few tenants of apartment houses
have had an experience with janitors
which makes blackmail preferable to the
risk of the repetition of these experi
ences. As in the case of waiters, there
are a good many annoyances to which
tenants may be subjected which cannot
be cured with a club and which do not
even form a substantial basis of com
plaint. And they are not less aggravat
ing because you can't get away from
them or resent them. But to simply pay
a man indiscriminately just because he
is there is a plan which releases him from
any obligation whatsoever.
I make it a rule and can recommend
it after some experience to pay with
reasonable liberality for any special
service—that is, any service above and
outside of that which the man is em
ployed to render to every tenant in com
mon. And I never tip 6uch men on gen
eral principles—that is, indiscriminately.
If an understanding to that effect is es
tablished at once upon going into a new
flat, you will avoid all the ills to which
others are subjected and have at call
those who are not only ready and will
ing, but eager to serve you. Begin at
once to compensate liberally every per
son about the place who renders you
special services and pay nobody else a
cent. Follow this rule, and you will in
variably get excellent service and plenty
of attention. This rule will work equally
well with the waiter if you are a regulur
customer.—New York Herald.
A Patriotic I laughter.
A young lady, the daughter of a west
ern farmer, whose heart overflowed with
patriotism, quietly left her comfortable
home, cut off ber beautiful hair, donned
male attire, enlisted in a company and
went directly to the seat of war.
During the home life she had been the
milkmaid, and her kind treatment of the
bovine tribe of the farm had made hor a
special favorite. But one of the lacteal
tribe was her special favorite and whose
reciprocal love at meeting was always
demonstrated. When mustered out of
service, she returned to her paternal
home, her habiliments being those of the
heroes of tbe war, and politely requested
permission as a stranger for entertain
ment over night, which was readily
granted by the kind host to a returning
On the following morning she arose,
and still regarded by the entire family
as a perfect stranger Bhe proceeded in
her soldier garb to her old milking quar
ters, and she had not entered the gate
way till she was at once recognized by
her pet cow, which proceeded to meet
her and greet her with all demonstra
tions of a loving animal to a dear friend.
Then the soldier returned to the house
hold, and instead of possessing the recog
nizing powers of n cow it was hard work
to persuade them that she was really
their daughter.—Cor. Pittsburg Com
The Shell or the Pearl Oyster.
Very few people arc aware tkat tho
pearl ouster way ; like the
oysters which It is of an en
tirely different species, and as a matter
of fact %\xe t-iiel 1h of tho so called pearl
oysters are of far more value to those
engaged in pearl fishing than tbe pearls.
There are extensive pearl fisheries in the
gulf of California, and some of the finest
pearls have been taken from those wa
ters. In 1881 one pearl—a black one—
was sold for $10,000, and every year since
that time many pearls have been taken
from the beds in the California gulf val
ued at over $7,500 each. But such' 'finds"
are very rare, and as a rule the pearls
which are brought up are of very little
value. The shells, however, are very
valuable. Most of them are Bhipped to
Europe, where they are manufactured
into ornaments, knifo handles, buttons
and the hundreds of other articles for
which mother of pearl is used.—Har
per's Young People.
Bare American Coins.
Coin collectors have long appreciated
the difficulty of making a complete col
lection of American specimens. The
United States coinage of 1703 is very rare
and a dollar of the year 1794 has often
sold for as much as $100. A 1790 half
cent is so rare as to sell readily for $15,
and a half dollar of the same year is
worth 60 times its original value. While
the half cent of 1804 is common enough,
all the other coins of that year are rare,
the dollar of that particular date being
the rarest of all American coins. Only
eight are Wtnown. to exist out of the
19,570 that were coined. Tho lowest
price that one of these now changes
hands for is $600. —London Nows.
Sweetheart Abbey.
There is in Galloway, Scotland, an
ancient ruin known as Sweetheart ab
bey. Within its ivy covered, storm bat
tered walls lies buried tho affectionate
and devoted Dervorgill, with the heart
of her husband, John Baliol, em
balmed upon her breast. Lovely in
their lives, in death they are not divided.
The crumbling masonry is still and must
ever be a romance in its symbols of
death and decay, telling every day, as it
has for 600 years, the thrilling story of a
woman's tender love and devotion.—Ex

Consumption Not Always Fatal.
It must not be supposed that every
one inheriting a consumptive tendency
succumbs to it. It is during the years
preceding maturity that the danger of
poor, unhygienic surroundings is great
est, but if such persons can be kept strong
until their forms have developed they
may become the very strongest of the
strong.—Youth's Companion.
