Ami tlio IMllliiCk oftlio 'I'll nit Will Ho Appreciated Wlion tlic Kxtrti Suwolnii ('nine In ote for .Noimtnr Tlio Proliublo IIllocl of till) I'nuMitfo of 11 free Coliuitfo Aft. Following is a dispatch sent to the St. Louis Ucpublio recently from Washington: "Tho battle over the silver ques tion will perhaps be ono of tho most interesting that has taken plaoj in tho congress of tho United States in many years. The chancos are that the free coinage men will have a majority, but they will havo no walk over. There is a very sot and 'determined opposi tion to them. It is not unlikely now that a majority of tho northern Demo ciats will oppose frco coinage, and that there will not bo by any means a solid Democratic voto in favor of the measure. Under ordinary conditions there would bo an overwhelming majority in tho house in favor of free coinage, but the most conservative and thoughtful sentiment among the Dem oorals is favorable to postponement of the question until after tho presiden tial election, Somo of tho Hill organs of Texas, who are bitterly fighting Mr. Mills, dcclaro that his refusal to sign a petition to tho speaker asking that a day bo set apart for considera tion of the silver question, is proof positive that he is opposed to frco coinage. Mr. Mills' honorable record of twentv years in congress oan not be smirched at this time by the or gans of David B. Hill or Barnett Gibbs. Mr. Mills stands now as ho stood for somo time past just as he stood when he mado his specoh to tho Texas legislature a Austin snon after tho adjournment of the Fiftv first congress, 'Mr. Mills will contribute nothing towards inserting the silver wedge into tho Democratic party for the purpose of splitting it, but if others iusert the wedge Mr. Mills will vote as ho always did vote when an opportunity offered itself, and as his convtotions will direct him, in favor of free ooinago. Ho believed now, however, as he has believed and as he pointed out in the past, that if the freo coinage ques tion is forced now it will disrupt tho Democratic paity, defeat the next Demooratio candidate for tho presi donoy, give a Republican senate and house of representatives in the fiftv third congress, give tho south force bills and perpetuate Republican powor. As stated before, Mr. Mills will not give aid or comfort to those attempt ing to insort this wedge for the pur pose of splitting tho party, but bei g an advocate of frco coinago, if tho question confronts him, he will vote for free coinage. A cw days ago ono of Mr. Mills' colleagues in tho house of representatives sent to Mr. Mills a petition to tho speaker, asking that a day bo set for consideration of the freo coinago bill This undoubtedly was for the purpose of putting Mr. Mills in the holo. Mr. Mills, however, is not in the habit of going into holes, but of doing what he considers to be right and proper in any contingency. Tho gentloman who sent the petition to Mr. Mills ought to have known him well enough to be satisfied on this point, but if he was not, then the chances are he will in the future. But the fight for free coinage, when it oomes up in tho house, will bo a royal one. New England will plump a solid Demooratio vote of I4 against the ooinago of silver; Now iork has 23 Domocratio members and 21 of them aro counted against free coin age; 4 of the 5 deraoorats in New Jer sey will be against free coinage, and 5 of Maryland's 5 representatives will also be against froo ooinago. Dela ware's solitary representative will op. PRICE'S alDBakin LjUPO Used in Millions of Homes poso froo coinage, and Pennsylvania will cast her ton demooratio yotos against tho mcasuro. It is believed that not more than throe of tho Ohio Damoorats will voto for free coinago and porhaps 6C,ven of tho Illinois dem ocrats. Tho Demooratio representa tives from Wisconsin will bo solidly against freo coinago and tho threo Minnosota men will also bo against Mr. Bland. From this it will bo soon that tho measure will by no means have a walkor-over in the house, though as stated boforo tho chances aro that the bill will pass. It is understood that most of tho western Republicans will voto for freo coinago, and thus tho moasuro will become a sectional rather than a party one." A PLEASANT AFFAIR. Th Entertainment Given at tho Young Men's Christian Asso ciation Rooms Last Night. In response to tho announcement th it tho toaohors and young ladies of tho Waco Female College would give an ontertainment and the rooms of tho Young Men's Christian Associa tion wero filled to overflowing last night. That the audience was highly pleased was attested by tho great applauso which followed each number on tho progremmo. After the opening prayer 'Misses Lloyd and Reynolds opened tho per formance with a piano duott "Dauso Maoabre opus 40 of C. Saint Saens." Tho second number on tho programmo was changed on account of the illness of ono of the performers and Miss Ilallio Tarver camo to the resono with tho yooal solo "Loves Sorrow, Shel-I iey. xne song was roiiowea oy a splendid recitation "Aux Italians" by Miss Willie Dyer. Tho fourth num bar "Kemonoi Ostrow opus 10 No. 11 Rubenstein'' was rendered by Miss Reynolds in a stylo that won a hearty round of applause. The fifth number was that finest bit of modern desoriptivo writing the chariot race from Ben Hur and was rendered in a style worthy of tho piece by Miss Lassoter. Tho sixth number was also substituted and Miss Etta Burgess sang a sweot little song enti tled "You" whioh wont diroot to tho hearts of the audienco. The applause which followed was kept up until fclie oamo bofoie the curtain but tho audi ence was not to be appeased or quiot od until she sang again which she finally did. The song was a beauti ful one and tho singer had one of the sweetest voices heard in Waoo for a long time. Tho concluding number was another testimonial to Miss Lloyds skill as a musician. The picco ren dered was "Marchen (Legend) opus 102 No. 4 Roff." After tho conclu sion of tho programme the crowd went into a "social session" and spent tho time very pleasantly in games and conversation until nearly midnight. I 11 m n .1 Justice Courts.
