The Waterloo Obeorvor, an obsoure weekly in New Xork state, comes to us marked wrippor with a column and a half cditoral favoring Hill for president.

Sho cannot come in with San Antonio. This city has a gusher in the heart of town that can sec that 2,500,000 of Waco and go more than 1,200,000 better. Next." Tho Now York Herald some time ago nomiuated Henry Watterson for president, and tho press generally has been lavish with fucecious criticismB. The San Antonio Democrat gels off tha best one, as follows: "If Henry Watterson were uot an editor, ho might be oleoted president, but ho ia an editor, and that settles it He would bo able to write his own uieaa ag9H, which would bo a violation of a long established custom." Tho Houston Post pulverizes the Gazetto as follows. 'Under the head of , "Silver Say ings" tho Gazetto asks a number of pertinont and some very impertinent questions. It has bcon said that auy tool can ask questionB, though it may tako a wiso man t& answer them. For instanoe: "If thero is nothing one way or the other in silver coin ago, as olaimed by Mr. Mills, why docs Massachusetts oppose its coin age?" Now, this ia a poser. Why does she? Don't overybody epeak at onoo, but will some ,of those in tho front row please rise and explain? But hero is a much harder ono. "If American coinage of silver lesson its valuo abroad would not the damping hero havo to bo oxohanged for some of our products?" Tho class in finanoo and political economy will pleaso wrestle with this problem, boing careful to avoid underestimating tho value of tho ''dumping" and a reduc tion in absurdum and when a solution is reached try this ono. If your aunt had ohancod to be of tho masculine gondor wouldn't she havo been your undo?" This will necessitate anothor inter view in tho Dallas Nows with Barney Gibbs the DallaB Brunetto acting as the reportor. THE NEWS IN BRIER Ex-Congressman William T.

Im It True? Washixoton, Jan. 20. Tho report is current hero today that ex-President, Cleveland announced his determination before leaving for Louisiana to decline to permit his name to be used in the presidential race. This conclusion is said to bo duo to the fact that Hill has Becured such control of New York that Cleveland's prospect for support from' his own state aro exceedingly slim. His ' friends, however, insisted ho shall not ' tako any such step, and as a result no ' public announcement is yet made and Mr. Cleveland will ponder further over it. Chin Red With HlRamy.

SOME FACTS ABOUT 'CHILE. ItCMiurrcs mid 1'rodHct of tho 1'luoUy IW-puhllu. Chile is a long, narrow strip of land on the west side of South Amuricn, ex tending from tho Andes mountains to tho Pacific ocean. Its length is 2270 miles, or about as far as from Toxas ii from Now York. Its width varies from 40 to 200 miles. Tho Andes oxtend in parallel ranges tho entire length of tha country. The area of Chile is computed at 218,1)25 squ.iro miles and its popula tion (2,:U0,2lHI in 1880) nt 3,000,000. Chile lays claim to Patagonia and Terra del Fuego, those bleak provinces at tho end of tho South American continent which aro peopled almost enti-cly by savages. While tho country is mostly mountain ous, thero aro fine alluvial lands around tho lakes and in tho river valleys. Its CoiinI It u t loll mid (liiMMiiiiirnt. Tho present constitution was adopted in lSStf and tho sovereignty is declared to rcsido in tho iieople. Tho exercise ol its function is delegated to three distinct powers as in tho United States legislative, executive and judicial. The havo a senate and a chamber of dep uties. Tho chamber of deputies con tains 100 members, each elected for a term of three years, on the principle ol equal electoral districts with cumulative voting and by a suffrage enjoyed by all citizens who aro 21 years of age il married and 25 years if unmarried. The term of oflico of senators is nino years Tho president is tho supreme oxecutivc head of the government at a salary ol 3000 a year, or about $18,000. Then aro five cabinet ministers, each with a salary of $ 0000. Tho president is choset for a term of five years. Ho is nol eligiblo to re-election until a term shall havo intervened. Tho ministers arc permitted to tako part in all tho debates in congress. Chile is divided in to fifteeii provinces, viz: Atacama, Coqmmbo Valparaiso, Aconcagua, Santiago Colchaqua, Curico, Talca. Maule, Nnblo Concepcion, Arauca, Valdivia, Llarqui turo and Chiloe, and also tho settlement of Magellan. Santiago is tho capital on tho Mapocho river. Justice's Slow Pace, Americans used to quick trials hj jury cannot understand how tho judi cial investigation made by tho Chilean government into tho Baltimore riot drags so slowly. Trial by jury is un known iu Chilo except in a modified form to libel cases connected with the press. Tho procedure in all Chilean courts is based on tho fundamental principles which obtain in all Latin countries, and is as slow as an Americaii court of equity. Tho supremo court sits at Valparaiso and thero are thret courts of appeals. Evidence is mostlj taken by depositions in writing. rrnductloii and Munuf.iettm-. Chilo is rich in minerals. Among its metals aro gold, silver, copper, lead antimony, zinc, nickel, bismuth, iron and quicksilver found in mines in tlit northern section, whilo coal in great abundance abounds in tho southern ter ritory. Gypsum is found in immense beds in tho province of Santiago. Cop per forms 50 per cent, of tho metal ex ports, whilo tho production of coal ii from 4,000,000 to 0,000,000 tons annu ally. Silver is exported in largo quanti ties to England. Tho manufactures of Chile are limited to flouring mills, smelting works, tanneries, breweries, roperies and soap works. Commorco of tho Country. Since 1855 tho commerce of Chilo has increased from -1,000,000 to 11,000,000 in 1888. The imports in 1855 wero a lit tle over 11,500,000. Now they aro mora than 10,000,000. Most of tho oxporte go to England and most of tho imports come from tho British isles. Of tho im ports cattle forms tho largest single item and some of this comes across tho Andes from tho Argentine Republic. Tho revenues of Chilo aro about 5, 000,000, and tho expenditures aro some times a little less than tho receipts. Her Armed Strength. Tho Chileans aro a warlike people and tho best soldiers on tho South Amorican continent. Thoy had a long strugglo foi independence. Since tho Spanish yoke was thrown off in 1817 tho craft of tha nation has had sonio stormy sailing. From 2ar)l to 18S5 thero was peace and then broke out the war with Peru, in which Chilo was victorious. Her recent revolution is fresh in tho minds of tho peoplo. Tho regular standing army of Chilo is 5000 men. Hor greatest muster roll, shown by official records, was during tho Balmaceda trouble and only footed up about 12,000 inon. There aro in tho republic less than a qnarter of a million men, capable of bearing amis. The na tional guard numbers 55,000. Chile's navy is her pride. Her cruis ers, tho Esmeralda, Capitan Prat, Val paraiso, Almirante, Cochrane, were all built in England and in Bneixl tlin mhi. meut as good as money can buy. The uuueans aro a maritime peoplo and next to tho Americans limkn tint host ml most daring navigators in tho western hemisphere. In addition to their cruis ers thoy havo a largo unmlmr of mer chant vessols which can bo mado to do good service in tho event of war. They have largo shipyards and docks at Val paraiso, which ia tho greatest port ou tho Pacific coast of South America, LET "EM GO. f-lere's ow jt peads Mow That We Have Taken Out Last Whack at Prices. : CLOTHING- All of our Men's Cassirnere Suits that were $3.75, now for $2.95 Allof our Suits that were $5.oo,now for 3.60 All of our Suits that were $7.50, now for 5.50 All of our Suits thatwere $10, now for 7.50 All of our best goods that sold as high as $17.50, choice now for $i0 Everything in the shape of clothing butch ered in proportion.
