After Germany I comes r ranee, which country only pro duel's a third of w hat is produced in Germany; while next comes Belgium, where the amount is not far Iwhind that produced in France. The value of coal worked at the place of production, cer tainly in France, and probably in fiel- r gium, too, is far higher than it is in either the United Kingdom or Ger many.

Reports from the cotton sections to I the department of agriculture show a surprising falling off* in the use of arti ficial fertilizers. Department officials say this is the most noticeable feature of recent ml vices. For instance, the reports run liko the following: Ala barn a, Barbour county, decrease in fer tilizer about 25 per cent ; Chambers county, decrease in fertilizer 50 per cent; Cherok.e county, dccreasp in j but others show the same relative re- I The officials believe it to lie | due in part to the fact thut the gov ernment experimental stations have I sought to show cotton planters that waste could best serve as a fertilizer. But in hhkI that the change is bo great that it can be accounted for opiy by the fact tliat planters are turning their cotton lands into use for other kinds of fertilizer 50 per cent. These counties are taken at random, diiction. A seoond decree has lieen received from Rome concerning the obligation of Catholics to remain out of the Knights of Pythias organization. It states that there appears to be no fur ther reason why the decree of last De comber should not be made public in all dioceses, and all archbishops and bishops are accordingly directed to pro mulgate the decree without further de lay. When the decree was first issued the lie&d of each diocese was given two I months within which to publish it, or else to make known to Rome in writ ing all special circumstances existing why publication should be deferred, Most of the heads of dioceses have since publisned the decree, but as un official information has reached Rome that some bishops had not yet acted, this second decree was issued. contested election OASES.

The glittering riilver badges of the free silver delegates demon etrateil the fact that the white metal has many friends among the Repub lioans. The ladies from Colorado lost no opportunity to do missionary work in favor of the free coinage of silver, first day's session * ■ 5SSE' , After prayer by Rev. S. L*. Darcie, Secretary Humphry read the call and addresses of welconie were made by Mayor Robert McKisson and Preai dent D. D. Woodmaasee, of the Ohio' League of Republican Clubs. Presi dent Tracy, of Chicago, then delivered the annual address. In his addressof welcome, President D. D. Woodmansee, of the Ohio League, expressed regret that Gov. McKinley was prevented by his Kan engagement from welcoming the delegates to Ohio. The reference to McKinley caused a loud and contin- | uous demonstration. The secretary annonneed that there I were represented at the convention for ty-six states and territories, the largest number ever represented at any con vention of the League. Among the delegates were a number of ladies, four from Colorado, one from New York, two from Washington and three from Illinois, the latter representing Wo man's League Clubs in the state. | „ * an day's The second day of the convention I opened up with every prospect of har mony, notwithstanding the contest for thyee days between those wearing the yellow and the white badges. The only differences were on the silver res olution. On the tariff and other ques tions the delegates were united in | standing by the antecedents of the party. The boom for Gen. McAlpiq for president seemed to be so general that there was no scramble even foi the offices. A committee on resolutions was ap pointed consiting of fifteen silver med and thirty-one anti-silver men. The subcommittee of eleven to draft résolu! tions to submitt to the full committed hail only two silver men, Dubois, oi Idaho, and Allen, of Utah. The re port of the committee, however, re ferred the silver and all other question« to the nominating convention. When President Tracy called the convention to order at 11 a. m. thil first thing done was the appointment! of Senator-elect Thurston of Nebraska, H. Clay Evans of Tennessee, ex-Gov ^ 1 Prince of New Mexiccf, Messrs.

At the end. of Mr. Miller's I speech, Secretary Humphrey read let ters of regret from a large number of prominent republicans over the country. This was followed by the read ing of a large number of resolutions on | every conceivable issue and topic. Mr. I rank Oreer, of OklahoniA, offered the I following: 1. We demand the free and unlim ited coinage of the American silver pro- D dnet with a prohibitive tariff on the foreign product, modified by financial reciprocity laws. 2. We are oppoeed to single standard inaugurated by Grover Cleveland and the Democratic party It the dictates of England. Wo believe in absolute bi metalliam, the monetary system es tab tished and maintained by the Republi-j can party, gold, silrer and paper circu^j lating upon a parity, one dollar thej the equal in purchasing and debt pay ing functions with every other dollar. . 3. We believe in a tonnage law in ad dition to the regular protective tariffs on all goods entering our ports in for eign vessels, that the Ajnericao flag or American marine may command su premacy upon the seas, displaced by the blighting monopoly of England of the world's ocean carrying trade. ef his the a W. T. Schultz, of New York, offered a strong gold standard resolntion. Mr. Gould, of Massachusetts, offered resolution. It op a ' sound money posed the unlimited coinage of silver in very strong terms. The silver men And the anti-silver men continued for some time offering resolutions ,that did not materially differ from those that had boen previously piled upon the secre tary's table by representatives of their respective faction*. , J The rules were suspended and convention proceeded to the election e t officers. Mr. George B. Green, State presi-j dent or New York, in an eloquent speech placed in nomination Gen. E. A. McAlpin for president, and he was sec i 0Q< ^ e< l oy G&L Carr, of Illinois, and Qearl * ftU of 4he 8tatea ponded the nomination. I ^°Alpin was elected president by acclimation and a committee of three was appointed to escort him to the hall which was done, and the newly elected I P r ®sident expressed his thanks for the | honor conferred upon him. He said . that as long as he should remain presi ^ en4 the league the only motto should be: "Work, work, work!" I «.* . „ , , 1 he States were called for vice-presi dents and members of the executive committees. Vice-Presidents were elected as fob fows, viz.: Alabama, W. H. Horner; J Louisiaua, Dr. E. A.

The third and closing day's session of I ^, B !?" b,i ? n ^T^T , 6 ' 8 B m»*! convention found the delegates harmonious as well as weary. The sil ver agitation has been at white heat all week > hut the unanimous action of the thT^Vt! ° U re8olatioaa had ended Th^aiJmbling of the convention was delayed until almost noon by the meetings of the • officers of State Leagues, the new executive board, the «committee on League work and other organizations engaged in routine busi doss. The old executive committee was also engaged during the forenoon closing up its business, . The most interesting feature of the day's session was the contest for the election of a secretary. The names of John F. Byrne«, Colorado; W. G. Edens, Illinois; L. E. Walker, Nebras ka; M. J. Dowling, Minnesota; were pieced in nomination. l Although Mr. Walker's name had been withdsawn, yet hè received some *otes. Before the result of the ballot wafl announced changes were made f fom Byrnes and Edens to M. J. Dow I>Dg and the latter's election was made Messrs. Humphreys, of New York; LaughKn, of North Dakota; Byrnes, of Colorado; Kelley, of Minnesota, and Edens, of I Uinois, were appointed to *»cort Mr. Dowling to the platform, Hr. Dowling assumed the duties of his place without making a -speech. A strong vote of thanks was tendered Hon. A. B. Humphrey, the retiring secretary. Votes of thanks were also tendered the citizens of Cleveland, ex President Tracy and other officers. The election of a treasurer was referred to the Executive Committee. At 1:10 p.m. the convention adjourned sine die. The election of Mr. Dowling to the po "ton of secretary over Byrnes, the free silver candidate for the position, is con sidered as the rather «ignificant feature of the whole proceeding, unanimous, without a count.

Massey, superintendent oi public instruction of Virginia, sues the Norfolk Pilot and its late editor, Rev. 9am Small, for $50,000 damages, opened at Norfolk Monday. This case is one of the most notable in the his tory of that State. Massey is a sharp old politician, and one of the most de termined fighters in the State. One of the defendant's lawyers is Hon. John S. Wise, now of New York but former ly of Richmond. Massey and Wise met in this suit for the first time since some time in 1889.

The Reserve Fund is a new feature in this kind of insurance, and it hns so rapidly increased and has now reached such proportions as to be a guarantee of the faithful compliance with the contract of the company.
