A BILL, has been introduced in the Texas house to establish an asylum for colored orphans at Corsicana. The governor of California has signed a bill passed by the legislature compelling railroads to carry bicycles as baggage. Four members of McKinley's cabinet Sherman, Gage, Alger, and McKenna are each over six feet tall. Long, alone, in short. The church militant is again en riching the soil of Crete with human blood, and is likely to precipitate an other great European war. "Cubans had the best of it in Tues day's engagements," says the Picayune man, "as the news came by Key West. It is now time for Weyler to win by the way of New York." The "Order of the Knights and Ladies of Dixie" is a new fraternal and insurance organization growing ir members with great rapidity in the southern states. Ex-Governor Richard B Hubbard of Texas is supreme com mander. The Californ a legislature is consid ering a bi'l limiting ttlegrapn charge to 25 cents for the first twenty five words and five cents f.-jr each additional word to or from any point within th state, and fixing a fine of $500 for each and every viola' ion of the law. THE climate of California has alway. had the reputation of affecting peop:e powerfully. Recently at Modesta in thit state a young lady attended the funeral of her sister, and immediately on her return home from the cemetery she got married the same minister officiating at the funeral and the wed ding. The California legislature is now wrestling with a bill providing that the bodies of all deceased paupers shall, instead of being buried at public expense, be turned over to medical col leges for dissection for scientific pur poses. In the lauguage of the poet: "Rattle his bones over the stones, He's poor devil whom nobody owns." The state law of Louisiana provides that athletic clubs may have exhibi tion glove contests for a limited num ber of rounds, upon obtaining a t perm it from the mayor, and upon the payment of a sum between $50 and $500. Recent ly the Olympic club of New Orleans applied to the mayor for such permis sion, and that officer has decided to grant it, but will charge the maximum tax, $500. The isew York legislature is con sidering a bill to prevent insane mur derers from becoming repeaters. The bill provides that when a jury shall ac quit the defendant on the ground of insanity, such insanity shall be pre sumed to continue, and the court in which such acquittal shall be had shall make an order that the person so ac quitted shall be confined in the state lunatic asylum for a period of not less than ten nor more than twenty years, and until he becomes sane. A Russian journal, which is said to have special sources of inspiration says: "The sultan has now not only the destinies of his own country in his hands, but also those of the peace of Europe." The slaughter iu Crete of Christians armed by England, and the hostile feeling recently aroused against Great Britain in both France and Russia, may soon result in one of the greatest European wars of modern times, and it will be a case of "three pluck one" France, Russia and Tur key against England. That was a center shot that United States Consul General Collins gave Engl sh meddlers when he said, in reply to a toast at the B.iyrd dinner to the prince of Wales: "You have 6o much time at your disposal as to be able to devote much of it to the regula tion of the affairs of other countries. In the course of tha'-business of regu lating the affairs of the people of other countries you have taken special plea sure in holding meeting, appoiuting committees and adopting resolutions denouncing the lynching of negro criminals in America, and yet you kill ujui C3 uci' lit:.-, iu iinua iu t 1 1 1 1 r I L 1 1 I I than the Americans have done in the entire history." i STRENGTH OF SILVER. Its Influence In the United States Senate. CLAIMS OF THE (TK.IX LEADERS. Xotliiug Short of Absolute Independence Will Satisfy the Insurgents The House In a Fanny Alood Amendment to the Set'fl Appropriation liill. Washington. Feb. . Special. 1 The chances are that the perioral arbitration treaty iK'twccn this country and Great JSritain will now be ratilit-tl by the senate. It is almost certain that a vote will not lie reached during the present congress, or, if one be reached, that the treaty will be re jected. In this connection it is true that the silver men of the senate are showing their teeth toward England. Mr. Teller, who is the leader of all the silver forces in the senate, admitted to me tho other duy that those who sympathize with him were in part led to antagonize the arbitration treaty because, of their desire to impress Great Britain with the fact that they aro still of some importance in the upper branch of the American congress. The sil ver men are of some importance in the sen ate. They now hold a majority over all, and even after March 4 they will not fall far short of n majority. They expect to have at least 35 silver votes in the next senate, and they may have 37. If the' wished to do so, they could combine with the ant isilver Democrats who are opposed to Republican tariff legislation and defeat, or at least greatly harass, the tariff bill which President Kloct McKinley hopes to place upon the statute books by .Tilly 1. But the understanding among the silver senators is that they will not offer any fac tions opposition To the Republican tariff, but will permit it to go through, so that the dominant party may as soon as possi ble be made completely responsible for whatever happens to the prosperity of the country under its regime. Cnban Matters. Among the public men of Washington I find very few who believe tho Culwn in surgents will accept the reform (dans which Spain has decided to offer them. It is true that President Cleveland and Secretary Olney hope the insurgents will lay down their arms on a compromise lwisis. But the president and the secretary of state get all their information concerning the situa tion in Culm from the Spanish. They do not hear the other side of the story at all. This is so in the nature of the case. By diplomatic usage they are forbidden to have anything to do with the representa tives of the insurgents. There is a so called Cuban legation here, with a minister and two secretaries, but the state de-iartnient has no dealings with ir, not even any of an unollicial and informal nature. Those senators and representatives who have tak en the trouble to keep themselves well in formed concerning t he developments of the Cuban war have Utile faith that Spain really intends to institute genuine govern mental reforms in Cuba, and still less that the insurgent leaders will accept anything short of absolute independence for the is land. Secret Letters. At the so called Cuban legation today I was told that they have letters from all their leaders in Cuba, and every man de clares for independence or death. The Cu bans in this country have not much trou ble in communicating with their friends in Cuba. They send letters to General Gomez and to President Cisneros by means of expeditions. They also intrust their communications to travelers who are going to Havana and to other seaports, where they fall into the hands of friends who smuggle them out into the country to the men to whom they arc addressed. Often these communications are placed in the soles of boots, between the layers of leather. The lienrcr of dispatches may be searched by the Spanish if he be so luckless as to fall into their clutches, and they will dis cover nothing contraband upon him. Or letters are written in invisible ink. Many important documents have come through the Spanish and American mails in this way. All letters that go into Havana arc opened by the authorities. The harmless ones are permitted to go on to the United States. Hut the Spanish, shrewd as they are, cannot always detect the letters which bear scen t tidings, for upon what appear to be perfectly blank sheets there is some times in isible writing. 1'pon the arrival of such letters in this country t hey are sub mitted toa chemical process, and there the characters stand out as plain as day. An Alleged Juke. One recent day the house of representa tives fell into a funny mood. The house sometimes dots this. The oldest and stead iest members catch the spirit of fun, like so many schoolboys, and great sport fol lows. On the occasion in question the pro lific subject of appropriations for Feeds for free distribution to theronstituents of sen ators and members was under discussion. Many were the jokes and gibes submitted. One of the best was cracked by Mr. Mer cer, the representative from the Omaha dis trict of Nebraska. Oddly enough. Mr. Mercer, though hailing from n purely agri cultural state, opposed the appropriation for fret" seeds, and lie expressed his opinion very neatly by means of an amendment which he hud read from the clerk's desk. It was as follows: "That the secretary of agriculture dis tribute to each senator, rej rt sciitatnc and delegate in congress six chickens, six cat tle and six horses, all thoroughbreds, and divided as to sex half and half." The reading of tlivj ratirical amendment caused a great laii.L.! to run through the hall, and tho merriment increased when Mr. Mercer, with a sober face and angry mien, objected to having his amendment called a joke. "It is no more of a joke than the proceedings which have taken place upon the floor of the house all day with rt t'erenee to -t ed disi ri! ill ion. " he contend ed. "Tin re has been complaint after com plaint ant! wrangle alter wrangle about this or that package of seeds. Some mem ber linds tli.it lit is two or three packages short, and he comes here and growls about the department of agricnlturcund the gov ernment in p :t ral. '1 here are fanners out in my distri-." who do v.rt care for the seeds which we send out to them, and they have come to the coi:el usi: !i that if they ran hae such things as sit t!s f ree of cost they would prefer tnrUt ys and horses and hogs ii nil partridges and cattle" "And hound pups." suggested Mr. 1 ia rl let f t if Georgia. lint Mr. Mercer's proposition was voted down, and the tanners will have to get along wit hout chicki ns, hegs. cattle, horses and hound pups from llie government. Wai.iki; Wkllmax. What costive people need is a natu ral laxative like Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets which are powerful without be ing violent. They move the bowels gradually and comfortably but surely. You can regulate the dose one, two or three "Pellets" exactly as you need. They strengthen the intestines to do their oivn work, so that after their movements become regular they keep on naturally of themselves. -. , , . . ."iam LiOoaraan. jr., was taicen witn a paralytic stroke the other day, but is better today. HOLIDAY TIMES. Preparations for the Midwinter Season oJ Festivity. Willi -the rtassing of All Saints' day and Halloween the holtlay sesison draws near. It hais lieen the fashion of reef ent vpars to beirin the season weeks be- frvre Christmas -t ua 11 v arrives. Chr :st- inas greens decorate the shops and a displayed with hoily and mistlet from Thanksgivinig until the high li of the holidays sets in wi t li t 'hre-t m as week.

There are those among' ns to whom Christmas brings sad memories. 1 TlinL-wrlvinir ni-:llt II senttert household, but we co.er our cares and for this beatific season and re joice with those. -who rejoice. Such sac rilice of self will be a power which shall li t tJie despondent, into an atmosphere of courage jui.i1 hope. A large portion of these blessed weeks before Christ inas is spent in preparat ion of holiday gifts and holiday feast-, for poor chij tlren. There are a myriad of missions going forth on errands of mercy at thin season. Thanksgiving; day, the first festival of the holiday season, is peculiarly an Amesican feast day. Though it par takes something of the nature of the Jewish feast of tho ingathering, it is not. like that, it purely religious festival. It is a season when families that are sep arated meet again under the old parental roof. Like all festivals of Puritan origin, it is celebrate! with relig'ous observ ances in Xew Knplaml. The Thanks- -gtvmg sermon was tcrmerly as uiueti a part of the celebration of the day as the dinner that followed. This day has been compared to the Harvest Home days oft he Knglish farmer or the " Kirn" - f Scotland. Both these days were pub lic rejoicings of the -entire community in the completion of harvest. r:ntl were celebrated with considerable rout and rabble. These were seasons of pictur esque procession and merry drinking bout, and not of religious and home ob servance. Let us all remember the holiday sea son in the holy spirit of good will to men. It matters little what our ex ternal giving may be. if we give to Heaven a grateful heart for the blessings that are showered upon us. Let us not profane this season by vulgar ostenta tious gifts, which are beyond our means, and serve only to gratify our own self esteem and pride. Let us meet the sea son in the spirit, of Tiny Tim, with the prayer: "God bless us every one!" X. ". Tribune. MUUINtL.IINK. A Peculiar UllnUnes ( anscil by Sleeping in the Mot.iitiRbt. Three eases of "luoonbliiik" occurred on the British steamship Acanthus. which reached Philadelphia the other dav. After the low-iving hills fringing the shores of llataria failed from view on the afternoon of duly 1 1 for SO days her crew- of CO oflieers ami seamen saw no land, sigiited no vessel anil encoun tered no storm. Among the crew are three seamen who. during the run iicross the Indian ocean, suffered terri bly from sudden blindness at night, the result of that strange disease of t he eves prevalent- in the tropics. and known to sailors as "moonblink." One bright, moonlight night, while the Acanthus was steaming across the In dian ocean, one. of them finding his lnrth in the forecastle too uncomforta bly hot. went out ami lay upon the deck. The moon, was Hearing her full anl shone almost direct ly overhead. When the watch was changed at mid night he, was :. wakened and was horri fied to find himself blind. At first the captain thought the man might be shamming to avoid going on duty, but an investigation wa. made, and il was found that he could not see. although his eyes were witle open. The calamity was at once diagnosed as a ca.se of "moonblink," and the captain cau tioned his men against running such risks. When day liegan to break sight began to return, and by sunrise he could see as well as if nothing unusual had happened. All of that day the case formed the chief topic of c. nver sr.lion.and when night came two more men determined to test Ihe effect of the moon. After a two hours' nap in the full glare of the moon both men were awakened totally blind. An order from the capiain prevented ,tnv fun her ex perimenting in that line during the rest of the vovage. siys Of severest trial and test provo in regard to Hood's Sarsaparilla st, Greatest Merit Secured by a peculiar Combina tion, Proportion and Process unknown to others which naturally and actually produces d, Greatest Cures Shown by thousands of honest, voluntary testimonials which naturally anil actually produce d, Greatest Sales According to the statements of druggists all over the country.

A Chihuahua Marriage. Quite a notable wedding took place recently in Chihuahua, the contracting oarties'being Srita. Carmen Ilernan- dez, daughter of General Juan A.

The religious cere monies were performed in the Cath edral at 8 a. ni., from whence the bridal party were conducted to t'ie residence of the bride's father where the civil ceremonies were performed. Gov. Ahumada and wife acted as best man and brides maid. The newly wed ded couple left on the night train of the same day for Mexico where they v ill take up their future residence. Important Cattle News. Col. Coliu Cameron, president of the ('attle sauitary board of Arizona, and t 'apt. Price Hehan, member of the board, came in from the west last night and continued on to anta re, at the request of Gov. Thornton, to meet with the board, relative to having the quar antine against Arizona cattle as made in the governor's proclamation of ,)in uary 27. rf-mored. The Arizona gen tlemen have good reasons for asking the rerniest, as the government has just issued quarnntine regulations, drawing the lines and without mentioning the territory of Arizona. Citizen.
