Atkinson In his suffering, and wish for him a speedy recovery. The Southern Base Ball League is hold Ing together mighty well this season. It has now been In existence something Ilk? two months, and only one club lias "bust ed.” With good attention, It ought to survive long enough to play the Fourth of July games. "The sick man of the east,” otherwise the "Unspeakable Turk," still otherwise the Sultan of Turkey, has, it seems, con cluded to take his medicine prepared for him by the powers which proposed the re forms for Armenia. The sultan found out that the powers meant to hold his n-ose and make him swallow It, unless he did It voluntarily. The populists of Mississippi are wide awake. They are not going to permit Senator J. Z. George and Representa tive Hernando De Soto Money and their followers to rob them of their thunder, hence they are going to hold a state con vention shortly and adopt a free silver plank. They may adopt Mr. Hernando De Soto Money along with the other un sound money, If they feel so disposed. The democracy can spare him. The. Irish home rulers might do well to wait and see how Cuba eome* out in her struggle with Spain before go ing too far toward an armed resistance to English authority. Cuba Is better sit uated, geographically, for a struggle for Independence than Ireland, and Spain is a weaker power than Great Britain. The Cuban affair may offer some valuable object lessons to those friends of Ireland who forget prudence In the ardor to see the old country governed by Irishmen. The report that $250,000 In gold has ar rived in Cuba from the United States for the use of the insurgents may be well founded. There are many thousands of Cubans In this country; they get good pay for their work, and they save their money. For years they have been saving money for the express purpose of aiding Cuba to secure her autonomy, and now they are drawing ft out of the banks and sending It where it will do the most good. A quarter of a million dollars In gold will instain for quite a time the kind cf guerilla warfare that the Cubans are now waging. If the Cubans can command suf ficient money. It is probably only a ques tion of time when they will whip the fight. Nazrulla Khan, the Afghan prince who has been giving official and fashionable London the shivers by his queer doings, is going home. His father gave him permis sion to remain in England until Septem ber, but he is not going to take advantage of it, to the relief of those who were ex- to entertain and amuse him. The prinoe has an abiding faith in omens, and It was one of them that had the effect of inducing him to shake the dust of England from his feet. At the zoological gardens, the approach of Nazrulla was heralded by the braying of a wild ass, and the braying continued during the prince's presence, the ass refusing to be comrorted. Whether Nazrulla regarded It as intended to be personal or not does not matter; at any rate, lie resolved nt once to go home. And his erstwhile hosts are happy. At Bir mingham Nazrulla had hts first experience with an elevator, or lift, as It Is called in England. He refused to get Into it, even after sending up some twelve or fifteen members of his suite, one at a time, to see how the thing worked, and whether or hot it was safe. Secretary Smith a Inmilitate. There does not seem to be any reason for doubting that Secretary Smith win be | a candidate for United States senator to I succeed Senator Gordon. If anybody Is j authorized to speak for him on this sub- I Ject. Mr. Cabaniss of the Atlanta Journal | ought to be. In an Interview in the New 1 York Times of last Sunday Mr. Cabaniss is quoted as saying that he thinks It porsible that "Mr. Smith will be a candi- J date.” This means, of course, that Mr. Smith has about made up his mind to f be a candidate. Mr. Cjabantse speaks of only three can j didates, namely, Mr. dußignon, Mr. i Smith and Judge Crisp, and from this it is to bh inferred that, in hts opinion, the contest will be between these three. He classes Mr. dußignon and Mr. Smith as j sound money men and Judge Crisp as a silverite. It is quite a while yet before there will be an active campaign for the senator ship, and when it does begin it is by no means certain that there will be only three candidates. It is not at all unlikely that there will be a half dozen or more candi dates at the outset. It is also too early to say Just what the Issue of the cam paign will be. It looks now as If the sil ver question would be the leading, if not the only. one. Still, even the silver ques tion may lose much of Hs importance before next summer. Should there be a steady improvement in the material con dition of the country, or should the pres ent congress at Its first session pass a banking law that would promise an in- j crease in the currency In localities that ! now complain of a scarcity of it, the sll- : ver issue would cease to have the im portance it now has. Mr. Smith has not, of course the perso nal popularity of either Mr. dußignon or Judge Crisp. In order to get a following that would give him hope of success he , would have to be the recognized leader j of one side or other of an Issue in which j the people are Ttte silver question may ne such an is- ! sue, and It certainly looks now as if It j would be. If it should not be, however, I and the candidates should depend upon personal popularity for success Mr. Smith's prospects at the beginning of the campaign would not be as bright as those of some of the other candidates. No one, of course, doubts that he is a brainy man and that he has many friends in the state, but he has not been brought into very rlose relations with the people of the state, and prior to his becoming Secre tary of the Interior had very little po litical prominence. Will tVe Silverite* Answer Thisf In hts speech at Louisville last Friday night Secretary Carlisle showed that the fall In the price of silver was duo to overproduction, and not to the fact that the great commercial nutlons of the world l.ad ceased to keep their mints open to the free coinage of silver. The sllverltes Insist that the act of 1873, by which our mints were closed to the free and unlimited coinage of silver, wax a great -crime, and they declare that the fall In the price of silver Is not due to overproduction, but to the fact that the mints of the rich and progressive nations were closed to silver. They say if the mints of these nations had not been clos ed to stiver the ptlce of silver would not have fallen. Assuming ‘their assertions to be correct, what would have been the result? In 1873 there was practically no silver in circulation in this country. The silver dollar was worth 3 cents more than the gold dollar, and had not circulated since 18&4. If therefore no nation had closed - Its mints to silver, and overpro duction is not the cause of the fall In the j price ot silver, the same condition In re- j Sped to silver would exist now as ex isted prior to the act of IS73—that Is, ! there would not be a silver dollar In cir culation in this country. The silverite* must admit either that jhq fall in the price of silver is duo to tion of that metal or that if ,the minis of all tiie world had remained open to silver there would not now be any silver coin in circulation in this country. From the sllverltes’ standpoint, therefore, the act of 1873 putting a stop to the free and ! unlimited coinage of silver was a good thing for silver, because it enabled this country to put into circulation, and keep in circulation about $400,000,000 of silver Even the sllverltes must admit that sn?h a circulation of silver is better than no silver at a!!. The silverites say that this country alone, by opening its mints to the free and un limited coinage of silver, can raise the commercial value of silver to its coin value. According to their assertions, it was the act of this nation and twelve or fifteen other nations that caused the price of silver to fall, and they contend that this country alone can undo what it and-twelve or fifteen other nations did. Such talk shows the magnitude of their insincerity. £ There isn't a shadow of a douht In the minds of those who give the matter Im partial consideration that the fall in the price of silver is due to enormous over* Itroductlon of the white metal. According, to Mr. Carlisle's figures the annual aver age production of silver throughout the .world,i during the five years next preced ing 1863, was about $06,000,CC0. In 1893 the production of silver was $209,000,000, an In crease of 216 per cent. .In the face of such figures will any reasonable man say that the fall In the price of silver Is not due to overproduc tion? And it Is this cheap metal, the production of which can be still further greatly increased, that the silverites in sist shhl! be our standard of value at ratio of 16 pounds of silver to 1 of gold. Japan is just new disarming and dis charging the veterans of the war with China. Presently the politician with the pension scheme will come along, am! Ja pan will probably find, as this country has found, that the cost of battles is only a small proportion of the cost of war. Very little was said at the Memphis silverite- convention about the prices of wheat and cotton. But that is not strange. Wheat and cotton prices are no long r , a'ailuble as silverite arguments. THE MORNING NEWS: TUESDAY, JUNE 18, 1893. The 14 ciasß unl the YYheel. In Brooklyn on last Saturday J 0.009 bi cyclists turned out on parade. Among the number it Is estlmnled there were 2.043 women. Thetr destination in a literal sense was well understood, but as an ab stract profiosltion Involving the Influence of the bicycle upon men and women, es pecially women, where were they all go ing? A Denver clergyman In a recent sermon said the riders of wheels were wheeling straight to torment. The Wo man's Rescue League of Boston, at a re cent meeting, resolved that the bicycle habit was degrading to women, and hid a tendency to blazt heth their present and their future. The league professed to re gard the bicycle as a power for evil which should be combatted by every lover of morality and correct deportment. The Rev. Madison Peters, one of the sensa tional preachers of New York, recently said the wheel had a most pernicious In fluence upon the young of both sexes. On the other hand. Miss Francis E. Wil lard, the famous temperance advocate, who is a rider fierself, sayd that the whirl is a powerful Agent in the cause of tem perance. And Mrs. Elizabeth Cady Stan ton Is quoted as having said: "Women are riding to suffrage on the bicycle.” The w lied is indorsed by the medical frater nity almost without exception, and a large number of ministers have given It then unqualified approval, some of them going to the extent of providing wheel storage rooms at their churches and Inviting riders especially to attend their services, riding their wheels to church. There can be no doubt that Miss Wil lard is right when she places the wheel on the side of temperance. The drinking of liquor and the riding of a bic-ycle do not go together. A horse will take a drunken man safely home; a bicycle will not. The drunken man who attomtps to go home, or elsewhere, on a wheel will soon have his condition exposed, and find himself in the gutter, with the disgusted steed of steel probably on top of him. The objection of the Woman's Rescue League of Boston to the wheel seems to be based chiefly on the facts that all women who ride wheels are not good women, and that the, tendency of fashion for female riders Is toward the wearing of bloomers. As to the first objection, which Is really a very poor argument, it may be said that the same objection ap plies lo the riding and driving of horses; yet not even the rescue league would de nounce tbe riding or driving of horses because Immoral people do the same thing. Bloomers were Invented by a wo man, a good woman at that; a devoted and true wife and mother. They have survived a number of years of criticism, which, however, has been pretty nearly all of the good natured, humorous kind. The real, earnest opposition to the style has come mainly from those women who, for obvious reasons, would hardly dare wear bloomers If they Wire so Inclined; and the possibilities are that the object ors In the Woman's Itescue League are of the class to whom the obvious reasons apply, and hence the objection. At least the leaguers are so prudish as to war rant suspicions. The senslblq conclusion seems to be that the well balanced woman may adopt the bicycle with Impunity, and wear while she rides it either skirts or bloomers, as suits her fancy, without running any greater risks than of an occasional fall, possibly, and the envious criticism of per sons not so well balanced. The radical free sllverltes are fighting “Shylocks” and “money powers" in the abstract; yet In their light they acknowl edge the leadership of a concrete money power—three multi-millionaires, Jones, Stewaj-t and Wolcott, who would be di rectly and Immensely benefttted by the success of the fight. The sllverltes are fighting capital as a whole for the bene fit lof a little ring of capitalists who have got a lot of money invested In silver mines, or in silver out of the mines. The New York Mail and Express is informed by its Washington correspondent that there are pretty well defined rumors at the capital to the effect that a silver ring has bought up between $50,300,000 and SCO.- 000,000 worth of silver bullion, which has been stored away in anticipation of the success of the silver movement, when the bullion would be rushed to the mints and coined. The ring, however, has only $lO,- 000,000 of Its own money in the pool—quite a healthy "only," by the way. The bal ance of the pool's capital has been put In by speculators of Wall street in New York and Lombard street In London. These streets, it will be remembered, are the gvfat bugbears of the free silver howlers. Another Australian system is receiving some consideration in this country. In South Australia, by an act recently passed, voting through the mails is au thorized, under certain circumstances. The innovation came about through the adoption of woman suffrage. An enemy of woman suffrage proposed an amendment providing for balloting through the mails, with the Idea of defeating the bill through the amendment. Curiously enough, the amendment was amended to provide that, in case of ill health or remoteness from the polling place, the ballot could be sent through the postofflce, and It was then adopted. Now, it Is said, the people would not give up the mail-voting privilege. It simplifies the matters for the men as well as for the women, a much larger male vote is polled, and busy people are not called upon to sacrili*e so much of their time on election days. It Is not so stated, but the supposition, quite naturally, is that the system of voting through the mails, together with woman suffrage, makes necessary the employment of a very large number of election clerks; for of course the postscripts to the ballots sent through the malls by the women have to be read. Among all of the "bimetallic" leagues formed by the free silverites, there is not one, so far as the advices go, that would accept bimetallism if it were offered. They all declare for free, unlimited and indepen dent coinage at the ratio of sixteen to one, upon which terms bimetallism Is impos sible. They are, therefore, monometallist leagues under an assumed name, adopted i tor the purpose of misleading voters. Dr. C'haunoey M. Depew left New York on Saturday afternoon to swing around a small political circle In Ohio; and thereby hangs a tale. When he boarded the train In Niw York Dr. Depew forgot his satchel. At Poughkeepsie he was about to tele graph back to have it sent on, when he re ceived a message saying that a special en gine had been started with the satchel to overtake the express. At Albany the spe cial overhauled the express, and Dr. De pew got his pajamas. This is probably Ihe only instance on record in which a special train was sent out to take a man his “nighties.” Usually the roster of presidential booms, In alphabetical order, begins something like this; "Aldrich, Alger, Al lison, etc.” The Allison boom Is scheduled to be inflated at Cleveland. The other old leaders of the "A s" will soon have booms soaring beautifully, there can be no doubt. PERSONAL. —The widow of Sir Richard Sutton of Oencsta-Amerlca's eip fume.

Free Citizen (Dem). The silver convention at Memphis Is said to run o been made uy almost entirely of politicians. Bryan of Nebraska and Ben Tillman of South Carolina are fair samples of the so-called democrats who attended the convention. AYlmt Georgia Wnnt*. From the Dalton (Gq.) A'gfs (Dem.). What Georgia needs right now is a few more democratic leaders with backbone enough to speak their true sentiments. The wishy-washy stiver Interviews of taose who believe silver to be the popu lar side, that it has a firm hold on the people, and is a good thing with which to win u campaign, are . making the people sick. Oh, for more men! M ill Follow the Green hitch Craze. Columbus (Ga.) Enquirer-Sun (Dem.). The people of Georgia who have been led to look to the free coinage of silver as a means of relief for the depression which the country has suffered, can see now the relief is coming without free silver. This is largely due to the fact that the great business interests of the country, after watching the agitation for silver, are satis fied that it is making no headway, and, indeed, perceptibly losing ground with the intelligent masses, and that the movement will fall, as the greenback movement failed. The Georgia people have had time and opportunity to find this out. and they are rapidly falling a way from its influence. By next summer the free silver contingent in Georgia will have dwindled to small proportion?. Stoic nil Old Populist Plunk. From the New York Post (Ind.) The compilers of the Memphis silver plat form got hold of several old planks from last year's populist platforms and shoved them In with delightful disregard of the changes which time has made. The fol lowing. for examtde, sounds very much belated: "Under the financial policy that now prevails we see the land filled with idle and discontented workingmen and an ever-growing army of tramlps, men whom lack of work and opportunity have made outcasts and beggars.” This was drawn originally when Coxey's army was in mo tion. ami before its illustrious leader was arrested and lodged in jail. Not a shadow of any army of tramps can be sen any where In this country to-day, and Instead of Idle workmen the newspapers publish daily accounts cf the voluntary raising of wages by manufactories in various parts of the country. In howling about calamity under these conditions the free sliver ad vocates show how grievpttsU’ they fear the airproaehlng Wave of prosperity. It will be all up wlttrtJiem when .that arrives, and thev howl th*ir loudest In Rope of accom plishing something fof thw cause before it gets here Mr. Smith's Valuable W'atrh. Tom Taggart's latest practical Joke was played on ex-Attarney G?neral Smith and It was a good one, say* tht* Indianapolis Sentinel A few evenings ago. while the propriettv was leaning over his counter, a traveling man with whom he was talk ing showed him a watch which had gone through a railroad wreck a few days ago and the works were literally broken to bits, the case badly bent and everything broken up generally. "Looks as if the engine sat down upon It " remarked Mr. Taggart. .And then an Idea struck htm. Glancing across the room, he saw Greene Smith talking with some friends. Now he knew that Mr. Smith car ried an elegant gold watch of fine work manship, which was given to him and In vvhlch he took the greatest pride. Jn fac', the ex-attorney general thinks as much of that watch-as he does of himself. "Say, let me have that pile of wreck,” said Mr. Taggart. ”1 think I can show you some fun.” Mr. Taggart opened the case slightly and stuck the watch into his pock et. Going over to Mr. Smith he asked him for h!s watch upon the pretense that he wanted to show it to a friend. “Well, be careful'of It." said Mr. Smith, in his most abrupt baas voice, as he handed over the precious watch. "Sow, boys, watch out," said Mr. Tag gart five minutes liter ns he smiled to the crowd standing around. He put Mr. Smith's watch in his pocket, held the other in hts hand partly covered, as th* Jwo did bear some slight resemblance (p each other, and approached the ex-attorney general. “My friend says that's a beauty, Greene" said Mr. Taggart as he held out his hgnd to return the watch. "Yes, It ought to be; It cost-*-a” What It cost will probably never l>e known. The sentence was interrupted by a crash as the watch fell to the marble floor, the case springing open and the works spilling over the floor like shot poured out of a bag. The ex-attorney general heard the crash and sprung to his feet with a whoop that could have been beard for a square. His face turned a livid green, while his voice almost slopped up his mouth In its effort to get out all at once. Pid he swear 0 Wei), of course It wouldn’t do to say so. He stamped his feet, danced up and down, roared, hurled anathemas upon the damnable carelessness of some people, and declared that the watch could never be replaced. During the tirade Mr. Taggart stood with downcast eyes looking mournful. After the first ha<l su'asided so As to allow of Ills being heart], he called a bell-boy, and In low, half audible tqnes, told the l<oy to get a broom ami dustpan and sweep up Mr. Smith’s watch. “And,” he added, “dust the pieces off carefully and give them to the gentleman." Tills slat ted another outburst, which al most threatened the bursting of a blood vessel. Mr. Smith turned to the cowering bell-boy and thundered: “You touch those pieces, you black rascal, and I’ll break you In two!” "You do what I say," said Mr. Taggart, quietly. “This gentleman ir not well.’ "Taggart." said Mr. Smith, “I’ve always been a friend of yours, but ” “Mr. Smith,” interrupted Mr. Taggart, "I am sorry for this, hut I think I can fix it, as the boys have all had enough fun for one day. While I regret the loss of the other watch, I have here an exack dupli cate, which I have had made and which I desire to return to you with the compli ments of myself and the bell-bov. Please accept this.” He held out Mr. Smith’s watch. The ox attorney general then caught on for the first time. He smiled sardonically, pocket ed h!s watch and then, with much satisfac tion added: "Well, you've broken up some other fel low’s watch and you'll have that to pay for.” And ho still thinks so. !Vo Place for Peacemakers. They told me that the old man sitting on the end of the long platform of the country store was Jake Huyser, and that he ha l a feud with the Carpenters which nad been running for twenty-two years, says a writer in the Detroit Free Press. After a bit I made bold to wander down and speak to him, and, having broken the lee, 1 asked; "Is It true about your quarrel with the Carpenter family?” "Reckon ’tis,” he replied, as he looked Uj> nh<l blown' the street and pulled his shdtgain across hss legs. "How did it start?" "I’ve |iun forgot,” 110 answered, after trying to recall the circumstance. “Heck on it was about a hog or mewl or sleh. 1 halnt no good reeolectln’ way back to the wah.” "Can’t you rememb* r how many cf the Huysers have been wiped out ?" “Sartln. Got ’em chalked down. It's nine, 1 reckon, countin' all hands.” "And how many of the Carpenters?" "Ten. Got ’em chalked, too! I’ll fetch another if he cums to the stoh this aiter noon.” “Good heavens, man! But do you mean to tell me that nineteen people have been killed over some quarrel so trifling you can’t remember It! This is awful!” "Well, drat ’em, they ’uns keep shootin’ at we ’tins and what are we 'uns to do?” he exclaimed in reply. "Didn’t any one. ever try to bring about peace be tween you?’’ "Yes, a feller tried It once.” “And how did he come out?” • "b ell, he—” Just then a bullet struck the post be tween us and flung splinters in our faces. It took me a couple of.minutes to clear my eyes, of the dose, and durng the in terval the old man whooped and reloaded with buckshot. "He missed me and I missed him!” be said by way of explanation, as he pointed to a horseman half a mile away. “Who was It?” "One of the Carpenters—the one I was layn' fur! Y’aas, as 1 was savin', a felier did once try to make peace between us. You wanted to know how he cum out. He's buried over a mile and a half cast. Bullet hit him right betwixt the eyes and he never even knowed what a fu!e he made of himself!” 1 see by the papers that the feud Is still going, with the Huysers still one ahead of the Carpenters. A Story of Commissioner Proctor. A good story is told of Mr. Proctor, the civil service commissioner, says the Chi cago Times-Herald. Mr. Proctor halls from Kentucky and down in that state he is looked upon as a good deal more of a democrat than civil serv:< y reforme’ When he came to Washington to t;.*e up his work on the commission, a mem ber of the eablnet Jokingly, said to him: “Proctor, I know you are a democrat, but 1 am afraid that reform business will take away your democracy." ”1 am not sure about that,” replied the commission er, "and in order to explain what I moan I will tell you a story. Down in my part of Kentucky a fellow was placed in nomi nation In a democratic convention for some local ctlice. Objection was made to him on the ground that he was not a democrat, and his friends knowing that this meant defeat unless something decisive were done, rushed out and found their man and brought him into the hail. 'Mr. Chairman,’ he shouted, and every eye was fixed upon him. ’Mr. Chairman, I understand someone has made the charge here that I am not a demorcat.
