Chioago is tho convention city. Tho Now York Sun has found a mugwump who docs no other save in tollootual thinking. The domooratio party would livo if Mr. Wm. M. Springer were to do the common ball aot ovory day. Selecting Chioago as the place to hold tho National Domooratio conven tion cooked Hill's goose. It will be a western man. There is something iu the atinos phero in Chicago that wakes a Demo crat hopoful of slathering the enemy. The Republicans are doomed. It was at Chioago that Cleveland -was nominated in 1881, and won the only national Democratic viotory gained sinco tho war. Let's see. Senator Palmer is not a candidate for president. He is for Cleveland. Senator Palmer is from Chicago. The national convention is to be held in Chioago. That old sinner the Now York Sun true to tho interests of thoso who fat ten on high t.ixos and jobbory, favors a declaration of war with Chili. It has always been so with Dana. The Austin Evening Nows says: "The Gazetto says the sentiments ex- prossod by Mills in tho .Corsioana in terview aro not ondorsed by ten per cent of tho people of Texas. Either tho Gazette is woefully ignorant of public sentiment in Texas or wilfully perverts the faots. Does tho Gazetto remombor the Waoo meeting of Mo Lonnan oounty Doinoorats, which unanimously endorsed Col. Mills? This was a pretty fair sample of Toxas opinion." The Democratic party should profit by the experience of its enemy, tho republican party, and put at the head ot tho ticket this year a man not here tofore prominent in tho raco for tho nomination. A good clean man from a doubtful state, and one strong enough to carry his state. Go before tho country with a platform cloar cut and unequivocal on the main issuo tariil reform. 1'ut good, honest tariff reform Domooruts at tho head of the i ampaign oornuutteo and viotory is urs. THE REPUBLICAN WAIL. Mr. Mills upon his return to Wash ington resigned the chairmanship of the intor-stato and foreign coinmerco committee, preferring, ho said, to act pimply as a membor of that committee- Tho correspondents of llepubli oan pupors at onco began an assault upon Mr. Mills for it, ohnrging that his course indioatod that ho is still in dignant and resontful. His Demo cratio enemies take up tho Republican refrain arid tho onslaught is mado with leaded telegrams and double leaded editorials and if the solid front presonted by the pro tectionists aud spoilsmen did not wear the Ropablioau brand on their roar, it might be expeoted to do tho Toxan some injury. But Democrats know who the Republican party droads more than any other and thoy know ho is a Texan and his name is Mills. Mills will do his duty as a mombcr of congress and ono of thoso duties is to accopt resignedly tho position to which Crisp's rolusal to appoint him ohairman of tho ways and means coin mitteo, rolcgatcd him: An ordinary member on the floor of tho houso. This position Mr. Mills will hold until tho people of Toxas domand his ser vices in tho sonato. That will bo when the extra sosBion oonvonos, if it is oallcd, if not, whon tho legislature meets'in January, 1S93. SENATOR CHILTON'S SPEECH. Our exohangos havo ceme to us with tho unanimous and simultaneous acknowledgment of the rooeipt of tho speeoh of Hon Horace Ornlton doliv ored at Camoron, Texas, July 4, 1891. The News cannot acknowledge tho reoeipt of that speech for it didn't re coive it, but The News read the speeoh the day after it was delivered and it was a good artiole, full of sound Domooratio doctrine. Tho lato edi tion with which tho state is flooded at this time is intonded for a campaign dooumont of course, and is expeoted to boost Mr. Chilton into the senate for tho next six yoars. Whilo the speech is a good speeoh, it is a very poor cam paign dooumont. If it had been spoken in Iowa, Ohio, New York or Massachusetts campaign speeches were- needed at that time its quality as a campaign dooumont would havo boen improvod very materially. It was in thoso states whero tho dem ocracy was engaged in a life and death struggle with the oommon one my that the Hon. Roger Q. Mills poured forth in speooh after speeoh that eloquence and logic that stamps him as the ablest, tho bravest, and tho truest Demoorat alive. Mr. Chilton at that time was canvassing his own stato in the intorest of his own candi dacy, and this speeoh that he is now circulating, and which he has had printed and bound in Washington City, is one of the spooohes made in that canvas. That speeoh oould not havo benefitted anyone oxcept Horaoe Chilton. If Mr. Chilton had ovon made the speech in the sonato in whioh case ho oould have laid some claim to public service it might have improved it as a oampaign dooument. As it is nobody will get any bonefit from that speeoh exoopt the WaBhinton printers and binders. For Sale.

Ions' li. RitociCENimoroii, Secretary. SOCIETY This has been an unusually lively week in tho Waco social world, every day being marked by some especially delight I ul iunotion. Reoeptions, "At Homes," teas, thoatro paities, etc, have followed eaoh othor in rapid suo cession, and tho week has presonted a refrsshing diversion from tho stalo sooial diet of whist and germans, though whist and gormanB have occu pied a small part of our attontion, necessarily it would seem. First camo tho sooial fccesion of tho Elks at whioh Mr. Wardo presided; tho play Tues day cvoning was tho occasion of a thoater party in honor of Mrs. Tobin of Austin; tho reception at tho resi dence of Mrs. S. L. Downs ooourred Wednesday aftornoon; Thursday morning was oooupied by an informal affair at Airs. Edward Rotan'a, fol lowed in the afternoon by Mrs. Walker's four o'clook toa, complimen tary to Mrs. Tobin. Tho "return gorman" by tho young gentlemen was iho ohief event Thursday night. Mrs. Sam Sanger reoeived the ladios of tho World's Fair oommittoe Friday morn ing, while Mis Annie Winter occu pied the evening with a pleasant party, which, togother with tho meetings of the various clubs and sooial organiza tions, comploted the gayest week of iho season. Tho week did not havo enough nights to supply the demand, nor would the afternoons suffice, but tho sacred morning hours had to be onoroaohed upon tho hours dedicated to household dutiot, and beautifying procosses. In point of brilliancy, splendour, elegance, enjoyment, wit and elo quenoe, the entertainment given to Frederick Warde b) tho Elks on last Monday evening has never boen equalled in Waco. Through tho pig gisbnoss and obstinaoy of the local management, tho Elks' theatre party was abandoned, they being unable to got seats in a body, but this did not mar tho ploasuro of tho resoption which occurred at tho Elks' club room uf.cr the porformanoo that oveniug. Tho Elks, with their wives and lady friends went from tho theatre to tho brilliantly lighted and decorated club rooms on Washington street, whore Mr. Wardo and several mombers of his company wero soon escorted by a com mittoo of Elks. Tho night was bitter cold but the warm parlors filled with beautiful womon mado every one soon forget that tho mercury was hanging around the edges of zero on the out side. After a short levoe held in tho parlors, Mr. Wardo, esoorting Mrs. George Clark, was led into tho spaoious dining hall by Mr. W. C. Watson and seated at tho oentre of the long tables arranged in the Rbapo of an E. Tho other quests followed in oouplcs and in a few minutes and with no con fusion, ovory one was seatod. Tho oompletonoss of tho arrangement of tho tables and their delicious loads of light edibles and wines, fruits and flowers, is duo to the indefatigablo efforts and good taste of Mr. and Mrs. R M. Bain, Jr, and Mrs. George Clark. Tho arrangements made by thorn wore perfect in every detail. ') .& -M & as , f f " v T-- U' TUB TAlll ES. i mtMB3K .sv. .- , When tho largo party was seated thcro were ovon seventy-five ohairs filled. Mr. J. l Massoy who sat op positd to Mr. Warde announced that the distinguished aotor and guost of tho olub was the ohairman of tho Sooial Season, and that ho had undis puted authority and tho solo disposi tion of all who were present, andthon Mr. Warde, in his iniuiitablo way, began to di'poso of the business bo fote him. Mr Park was called on for aspoeoh of wnloomoand responded in an eloquent manner. Mr. Bryan re spondod to the toast of "Tho Elks" Mr. E. Rotan responded to tho toBt, Banking. Mr. Barton, a mem ber of Mr. Wardo's company, reoitod a beautilul poem of his own composi tion, entitled: "First in the Foremost Line." Dr. Ohas T. Young respond ed briefly to the toast, Our Phypicians, and called upon Mr. Barton, who also responded in an oloquent tribute- to tho medical profession. Mr. Vining recited a poom entitled "My Old Swootheart. Mr. O. W. David made response to tho toast, "Our Tax Collector." Mr. Loighton rocitcd a beautiful nocin, tho namo of whioh The News has forgotten. It was now about 2 o'clock in tho morning. Mr. Wardo proposod "The Press;" re sponded to by Mr. Christopher, Tho next Toast was "Fishing," response by Mr. Cameron. "The Lavycr" was proposed and Mr. Downs respondsd. Air. Barton rooited, in a most amus ing way, "The Italian Fruit Vender." Miss DeZouoho very gracefully reoi tod a poem entitled, "A Legend," by Longfellow, Prof. Windsor phronolo gised Mr. Bains head. Mr. Warde, by request, reoited "Tho Stowaway." Then Mr. Wardo, in a very gracoful and eloquent speeoh, acknowledged tho oourtcBy tendered him and his company by tho Elks, and paid the ordor a very high compliment, not forgetting tho ladies who honorod him and tho olub by their attendance. It was now about 3 o'clook in the morn ing, and if tho memory of The News had becomo clouded, and any of tho THE I.EVEE IN THE l'AULOUS. interesting details of tho roooption are not published, tho publio will un derstand and forgive. But thoso who attended tho reception will never for get tho pleasures that crowded eaoh othor thijk and fast and will remem ber forovor that tho hours flew by too fast to allow tho heart and head to ab sorb all the unbridled joys that tho evening bad in store. Tho party dissolved at a few min utes past 3, but in tho library a choico collection of oongenial spirits, em bracing Mr. Waido, Mr. Barton, Mr, Herman, Mr. Vining, Mr. Leighton and Mr. Wardo, Jr., romained until tho gray dawn reminded them the parting hour had oome and when the last eohoes of Auld Lang Syno died away, tho lights went out and sleep soon closed the eyes of thoso who were so loth to see daylight drive them from suoh pleasant association. It is impoiBiblo for The News to report responses to tho toasts in doUil and it is satisfied that it will be ex cused from doing so by thoso who responded. Mcsdamcs Chamberlain, Haynic, Downs, Mistrot, Black, Ptokott, Roberts, Hondrioks and Byrno were "At Homo" to thoir lady friends on Wednesday afternoon at tho residonco of Mrs. L L.
