Following is a dispatch sent to the
St. Louis Ucpublio recently from
"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
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
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
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.
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."
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,
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.
