The management has grown confident that the United Pres for a long time has been appropriating the dispatches put on tbe wire by the Asso elated Press. Surely to prove the truth of this supposition it was decided to send forth a cable bit of alleged news that could injure no interest in the United States and be of little moment. Not only did the unfortunate Rajah figure in the Associated Press newspa pere on Saturday morning, but, strange to say, he appeared in all his shameless mendacity in the United Press papers as well, so readily had the bait been taken. The United Press had appropriated its special news and that treacherous rajah, not content with his mission to point a moral and adorn a tale, audaciously placed together the letters of his mystic name in such a way that, reading back ward they recite a fact indisputable: "The U. P. stole this." A SILVER PARTY. The White Metal Leaders Are aild to Favor the Move.

We have no hope from the successful party in congress." "Do you think Cameron would run as an independent silver candidate against the republican party?" "I feel confident that he would head our ticket with pleasure. He wants in the plat:orm only silver and protection. We all believe that party will be the principal opponent in 1891 of the repub licans unless the democrats during the short sesuion should pass the free coin age bill. ieeelver Appointed.

The convention adjourned sine die after adopting the report. There was not a suggestion of a double.barrelled legislature. TIli U. P. OFFEIRS A NEW SCALE.
