In the meantime, Mr.".. Hearst has brushed lip .the justly-cele
brated interview iwiih "an lowa "democrat" and is having it reprinted
once a week in all his newspapers: Tis an old and tried friend, begad,
albeit something, greasy at the elbows and smudged with, printer's
ink. Once more this grim visagedlowan. raises his wrinkled front
when the strings are pulled- and fearlessly 'exposes the iniquities, of
the democratic national organization,- and he is careful no.. mention
Mr. Hearst's, name, seventeen times -per column. \Ve fear it is all
true, and, indeed, it niakes a very woeful tale.. .God is' good to the
standpatters. They do not "have to' get 'put and. gainfully dig for
brickbats to throw • at- the enemy, for he supplies his o\vn petard.
Watch him hoist. ./You never hear of a, Texas republican scolding
his party and nobody 'would mind if he did, but an lowa democrat
ranks among prpphetsjin his. own party.
The next function in/ the regular round of democratic activities
will be the reading. out exercises. It is some time since Mr. Bryan
read Roger Sullivan put of the. party. To be sure, he did not stay
out, but; then, .they never do, nor does *his incompleteness of func
tion impair the quality of entertainment . The literary exercises are
always inspiring;." although' certain captious critics have insisted that
they would be more appropriate for a wake than a campaign. :
S Ay • FRANCISCO REPORTS PRO GRESS
QUR dubiously, good. natured friends beyond the mountains and
in. the interior of California who-'occupy their elegant leisure
scolding San Ffancisco.as a horrible example among cities might
profit by examination of Assessor Dodge's annual report. In !
spite of our. troubles we have not' been' idle.. Indeed we have added
a little; matter of $90,000, OCX) in newly created .values in the fiscal year
that ended on" Sunday; • With an assessed, valuation of $429,000,000
we are on our way to resurne°our old position. Another year' at the
same rate/of grOwth anti'thecity of San Francisco will stand in point

The Chinese looked surprised, and "Chicago" turned to us and winked.

. "Pardon me, sir/ said the "Chink" with a dignity foreign to anything
with which "Chicago" was familiar, "but I am at a loss to understand you,

your, question . in English, -or in French, .or Spanish, or German, or even •
in Greek, Latin or Hebrew, I. will. U3e my best endeavor, to supply the"

Mark Twain and There is a rumor in literary circles, a New ;
Charlotte Triirr ° York orT^V>ohdcnt tells me, .-.that : Mark'
ynarlOtte.leller Twain is going t5 marry Charlotte TeUer. the
novelist. It does, not seem, to be founded, on .anything more substantial '
.than his expressed admiration of her book, whereupon a. would be'witsent
the humorist a cartoon" with" Miss Teller as a Medusa. : Instead of snake 3
.her hair formed a cage in which Mark was imprisoned. A3 the Teller novel
is, called "The. Cage," "the cartoon ia ; self-explainable. \ •
•Another reason why the marriage h considered a pbssibijity is that
Miss. Teller has. been investing 0 in new clothes, though, of course.'" the, e.x- ..
planation is -allowable that she may have been, anxious- to §pend a- bit of \
her royalty. As' the; humorist is in Europe, arid the novelist, has gone J
there "to rest," that is another link, in the .chain of rumor. A widower and .
an unmarried woman, a friendly critic of a book, and the writer, and there
you^are.on the ocean of matrimony., ". * \u25a0 " :'• .„ .'
