republican of his acquaintance in the state

the wings and the other six feet eight
inches, and Wilson has already named

From now until they go into the conven
tion the birds will drink trom the foun~

Colonial Money in Missouri. ,
Versailles (Mo) Leader: Mrs. Anne
Burkhardt of this city called at the Leader
office last Monday for the purpose of ex
hibiting to us a financial relic of “ye olden
tyme.” It was a 15-shilling piece of money,
printed on white paper 2 by 2% and l
and browned considerably with age. In
scribed on the face, within a border, was
the following:
“This bill, by ordinance of the Provincial
congress, shall pass current in all payment
within the Colony of New Jersey for 15
shillings. Proclamation money, Dated
the 20th day oi February, 1776. On the re
verse side is the design of a leaf and the
following words: “Fifteen shillings. Bur
lington in New Jersey. Prmtcd by Isaac
Collins 1776.”
Mrs. Burkhardt will send this interesting
relic of of colonial days to the World’s Fair
with the Morgan ‘county exhibit.

'l‘l‘lo‘ comedy Tonight.
At the Olympia theater tonight the
funny play of “U and 1” will be given.
The Cincinnati Inquirer says of the play:
The bright and amusing show “U and I.”
had the distinction of attracting to Hank’s
last night the largest crowd that ever vis
ited that house or any other in Cincin
nati. It was a tremendous rush to see
the rolicking play, and not one of the im
mense throng regretted their attendance
“U and I” was seen here for onenight only
last season. At that time the theater was
packed to the doors, and the interest
shown at that time indicated that when
the return engagement was played Hank’s
wouldn’t hold the thousands of the admir
ers of the cleverest and most entertainin
farce comedy. The performance was afi
that was claimed for it. '[t is full of funny
hits, catchy songs and laughable situ

Tailoring Announcement.
James P. Hixson, representing the old
and well known tailoring house ofJ H.
Tobin, of San Francisco, has arrived in
Olympia and will remain a fewdays and
can be seen at the Olympia hotel. ie has
on exhibition a complete line of sample
goods of gentlemen s wear. There are
many adventurers soliciting orders for
clothes who are not tailors and cannot
take a correct measure, subjecting the pub
lic to annoyance and loss. It is hoped,
therefore. those wishing first-class clothes
will give Mr. Hixson their orders. He is
well known as a skillful and scientilic
tailor on the Pacific coast for the past six
teen years and he represents the best and
most widely known tailoring establishment
on the coast. (111-th

Walla Walla Union: Recently while
Murphy the temperance reformer for reve
nue, was Working Seattle Mr. Holman,
editor of the Post-Intelligencer, severelv
criticised him and his methods, a proceed
ing that brought upon his head the Wrath
of the peculiar gentleman who is the chief,
if not sole owner of the paper, who took
the singular mode of convincing Mr. Hol
man he was in error, of writing a letter to
Mr. Murphy and inclosing him a check for
S2OO to bee his wounded feelings. Mr.
Holman shortly afterwards tendered his
resignation. No selfrespectinlg man could
do otherwise. W'e wish Mr. 1' olinun great
success wherever he goes.

Compllmentary Remarks on Newly
Elected Officers—The Govern
or’s Guard Thought to be
a Questinnable Name.
About forty young men of Olympia were
mustered into the National Guard of
Washington, as Company A._. First regi
ment, last night. Major Charles H. Ayer,
bedecked in the gaily colored regalia of
his military rank, administered the oath,
after each man had subscribed to the rolls
and answered the necessary questions. The
choice of the members for officers resulted
in [the election of C. S. Reinhart, as (lap
tain, and Mark E. Reed, first lieutenant.
For the office of second lieutenant, there
were three nominees. JohnM. Goar declin
ing to serve permanently. On the first ballot
the vote was distributed between Walter J.
Milroy, C. T. W'hitney and J. W. Willis.
0n the second ballot Mr. Willis withdrew,
leaving Whitney and Milroy in the field,
the choice of the company being Milroy,‘
W.J. Willis acted as first sergent, while
Captain Reinhart put them through their
primary movements of the foot drill.
During the evening a discussion arose as
to the local name by which the company
should be designated in addition to its
National guard title of “Co. A.” Lieuten
ant Reed favored the idea of dispensing
with all names except that of Co. “A.,”
while suggestions came from the members,
that such names as the “Capital Guard,”
or the “Governors Guard” would be appro
priate and fitting. The question was put
to a vote. One member who was sensitive
of 1113 reputation and that of his associates,
spoke as follows:
“Gentlemen, in designating the com
pany by some’particnlar title, we should
not be unmindlul ol' the fact that it will
remain apermanent feature of the state
capital and of the national guard of Wash—
} ington. Now then, should we assume the
title of the governor‘s (guard. we mag have
a governor Who some ay may mis ehave
himself, causing much unfavorable com
ment. Under these circumstances the
governor’s personal character would in no
manner revert to the honor of the body of
young soldiers who are designated
throughout this glorious state as the gov
ernor’s guard. For this reason I think we
should ponder seriously and carefully be
fore adopting any such title.”
The force and eloquence of the young
soldier’s speech had magic eflect and the
company voted to adopt the suggestion of
Lieutenant Reed, and be name ess, other
than the simple title of “Company A, First
Before retiring, Major Ayer congratu—
lated the company upon the selection of
its officers high y complimenting each
of them. Of Captain ltemhart, he said:
“The reports in the office of the adjutant
general show your captain to have been a
credit to his company at Goldendale and to
the National Guard of Washington, and
under his instructions, company “A,” of
the First regiment will undoubtedly hold
similar hcniorsfli 7
“Your First Lieutenant Reed, was an
active soldier in the former military com
pany, and a good soldier always makes a
BORdea‘L’l v. -... ‘
Of Second Lieut. Milroy, I know but'lit
tle as a. soldier, but from my personal ex
perience with him I can assure you that he
will be a credit to the guard. Gentlemen,
I congratulateand thank you all.
The measurements were then taken for
the uniforms. which will be received some
time in January. For the present, the
skating rink will be used for drill purpose,
which will occur each Monday evening.

The Soul]: American Republlc
Evading the Issue and Play-
Inar at Diplomacy.
NEW YORK, Dec. 12:. The Herald’s cor
respondent at Valparaiso, Chile, cables the
following: ”President Jorge Montt, has
sent to the Chilean ministers in the United
States and Europe, a reply to President
Harrison’s message to the congress of the
United States in relation to the assault on
the sailors who landed from the cruiser
Baltimore. He declares the Chilean au
thorities have never attempted to evade in
the slightest particular any responsibility
for which'the country may be justly held.
but insists that the proper and ordinary
forms of Chilean procedure must be ob
served.” President Montt was interviewed
by the Herald and said he was fully con
vinced that in the end the American peo
ple would judge of the Baltimore affair
without bias. There was no doubt in his
mind that the congress of the United
States would act with fairness in the
matter and that justice be done by govern
ments of both the United States and Chile.
“The closing sentence of Mr. Harrison’s
message,” said President Montt, “shows
he wil await the conclusion of investiga
tion now being made before taking aggres
sive action. So believing, l have not the
slightest idea of any trouble between
the two countries. We are desirous of cul
tivating amicable relations with all coun
tries and have no desire for any difliculty
with the United States. No acknowledge
ment has been made of the receipt of t e
letters sent to the Chilean government on
November 9, asking for copies of the testi
monfiof Witnesses in the investigation in
the altimore afl'air. Six days ago are
ply was sent to a letter of Secretary Blaine
to Minister Pedro Moutt, at Was ington.
in which the American secretary of state
says that safe conducts were (granted the
re ugees who were in the erman and
French legations, while the privelege was
denied those who sought asylum in the
American legation. A reply sent to Secre
tary Blaine eclarcs no such permits have
been granted; that no safe conducts have
been issued to any refugees in any foreign
legations, and that Mr. Blaine can keep
himself well informed through the Chilean
legation at Washington.
