The Democratic delegation to Chicago will declare for the soundest kind of money. The Chicago newspapers are trying to make the rest of the country believe that one-third of the children in the Chicago schools never saw a hog.

THE SAINT PAUL GLOBE: FOXY SILVER FIGHT TO BE MADE AT ST. LOUIS BY THE WHITE METAL FORCES IN CONVENTION^ STANDARD OF SOLID GOLD. THEY WILL OFFER A MONOMETAL LIC PLANK AND FORCE A BALLOT. NO EVASION TO BE PERMITTED. Silver Men Determined Republicans Shall Go on Record as For or Against Gold. CHICAGO, May 23.—A Washington special to the Post says: The free silver delegates to St. Louis will not bolt. Such, at least, is the present intent. The present purpose is for the silveiites to make their fight on the plat form, take no part in the nomination of a ticket (being mute when it comes to ballot ing) and then make such combinations and alliance afterwards as will give greater prom ise of future Influence. It is barely possible that they will amend the second clause of the proposition, and Instead of refraining from balloting, "plunge" on Senator Don Cameron and make a fight for him in their respective states. But the most Interesting feature of the pro gramme remains to be told. The silver dele gates will have a representation of eight or nine on the committee on resolutions, includ ing such fighters as Teller, Dubois, Carter and Cannon. These men will make as big a fight as they can in the committee, and will, of course, be outvoted overwhelmingly. They will then proceed to formulate a minority re port, but it will not declare for free silver. It will be an out-and-out gold . platform. It will pronounce for gold monometallism In the most specific terms and in the strongest lan guage that can be employed. If the silver delegates cannot secure the recognition of silver, they propose to force the convention to go on record for or against a gold standard. "If the convention is bent on taking gold," said a Mountain state senator, who will be a delegate at St. Louis, "we will give it a chance to take the refined article, so that there will be no doubt as to the quality." G. A. R. ENTERTAINMENT To Be Held In the St. Louis Convcn- I tlon Hull. ST. LOUIS, May 23.—The St Louis mem bers of the G. A.

WASHINGTON, May 33.—United States Minister Denby, at Pekin, in reporting upon the trade of China for 1895, directs attention to the fact that the late war with Japan failed to Injure China's trade with the outside world, and that trade really expanded during the year, notwithstanding the loss of Formosa and the closing of the New Chwang custom bouse for several months. With the United States the trade was less than in 1894, but was great er than for any other year in the preceding eight years. The exports to the United States in 1895 were $15,853,320, and imports from the United States $5,494,642, $3,000,000 being in kerosene. The imports of Russian oil exceed ed those from America for the first time, prob ably owing to the heavy imports of American oil in the preceding year, which left a large stock held over. In the matter of Internal development there has been no want of progress, though the ex pectations of foreigners that the old Chinese conservatism would be broken down as the result of the war were not completely real ized. The Chinese are endeavoring to con trol their own railroads by allowing only Chinese money to be used in their construe- tlon, but this policy must in the end, and wherever long lines of road are concerned, give way to foreign syndicate operations. Meanwhile many agents of the American financiers and builders of railroads and rolling stock are now in China awaiting the an nouncement of definite plans by the imperial government, and at least two great American combinations stand ready to build and equip any railroad system China may desire. While much may be done towards introduc ing American ships, armor and guns In China, If manufacturers will keep agents there steadily, Mr. Denby does not recom mend the present investment of American capital in the establishment of industries until the grave question shall be settled of the exemption of such foreign factories from tax ation. Touching the silver question, Mr. Denby says: "It is safe to say that it will be many years before native-made goods will drive foreign manufacturers out of the country. The silver question cuts both ways: The merchant buys in China for stiver and sells In Europe and America for gold, and necessarily gains largely. On the other hand, he buys in Eu rope and America for gold and sells in China for silver. Universal bimetallism would be welcomed by many foreign merchants resid ing in China. It is scarcely necessary to say that not one favors "free silver" for his coun try alone. -^b- GEN. FAIRCHILD DEAD. Ex-Commander of the G. A. R. Passed Away at Madison. MADISON. Wiss., May 23.—Gen. Lucius Fairchild, commander-in-chief of the Loyal Legion, and ex-commander of the G. A. R., died at 6:30 tonight at his residence in this city. Gen. Fairchild has suffered from the effects of grippe for several weeks, and a month ago the ailment was complicated by kidney trouble. Until five days ago it was thought he would recover. At noon today there was a change for the worse, and at 4 o'clock he sank into a comatose condition, and did not regain consciousness. His wife and daughters were present when the end came. No arrangements have been consid ered for the funeral. -^»- CLAMOROUS CREDITORS. They May Do Violence to Mr. Hogn hoom at Hot Springs. HOT SPRINGS, Ar.k., May 23.—Ed Hoga boom, proprietor of the City Savings Bank and Trust company, of Hot Springs, which recently failed, with liabilities of nearly $175,000, and whose whereabouts have been a mystery, returned here today, and as soon as his presence here became known he was besieged by a clamorous crowd of creditors. Depositors in the bank who had lost all their savings in the defunct Institution, fair ly swarmed around Hogaboom's residence and several stormy interviews between de positors and the president took place. Ex citement was very high and the opinion was freely expressed that violence would be done Mr. Hogaboom, but this is hardly probable. Mr. Hogaboom has, since his absence from Hot Springs, been spending his time quietly in a village near Memphis. He says he does not know what condition his affairs here are in, but will try to straighten them out. -^*- BOYCOTT CONDEMNED. Said to Hare Inaugurated a Reign of Terror. MILWAUKEE, Wis., May 23.—The Mer chants' and Manufacturers' association held a meeting this afternoon, at which it was de clared that the street railway strike boyoott had produced a reign of terror unlike any thing known before in the city's history, and that method of forcing a settlement of the strike was strongly condemned.

The mayor was requested to call the attention of those responsible for the boyoott to the statute of the state, which provides a punishment for this misdemeanor, and the civil authorities were asked to exercise all their power tor the detection and punishm^ jtt all persons guiltjr p£ violating the law* TO HHPERCH GROVER A SENSATIONAL EFFORT THAT FELL VERY FLAT IN THE HOUSE. HARBOR BILL APPROVED. SENT TO THE WHITE HOUSE TO AWAIT THE PRESIDENT'S ACION. SECTARIAN SCHOOLS FOR INDIANS. House Stays by Its Determination That Provision for Them Must Be Cut Off. WASHINGTON, May 23.—The time of the house was again today devoted largely to the consideration of conference reports. The final report of the river and harbor bill, carrying the compromise proposition relative to the TITLES OF THE NEW SEASON. rival Santa Monica and San Pedro harbors, California, was adopted Without division. The bill now goes to the president. As finally passed, it carries $12,850,000 in direct appropri ations and authorizes contracts to the extent of $59,649,000. The final report on the execu tive, legislative and judicial bill was also adopted. The bill as it goes to the president carries $21,520,000, $370,000 less than the bill of last year. The sundry civil and Indian appro priation bills were sent *ack to conference. By a vote of 154 to 22 the house insisted on its provision in the latter bill relating to sec tarian schools. Eleven Republicans, two Dem ocrats and one PopuMst toted against so in sisting. Mr. Howard (Pop., Ala^), the author of "If Christ Came to Congress," at the opening of the session of the house, sprung a sensation, but it was short-lived. The house, with prac tical unamity, suppressed him. As soon as the journal was read, Mr. Howard, whose seat is in a distant part of the hall, rose dramatic ally in the center aisle, and, flourishing a paper in his hand, demanded to be heard on a resolution, which he sent to the clerk's desk. The resolution was as follows: "I do impeach Grover Cleveland; president of the United States, of high crimes and mis demeanors, on the following counts: "First—That he has directed the sale of bonds without authority of law. "Second —That he sold or aided in the sale of bonds at less than their market value. "Third —That he directed the misappro priation of the proceeds of said bond sales. "Fourth—That he directed the secretary of the treasury to disregard the law which makes United States notes and treasury notes redeemable in coin. "Fifth—That he "has ignored and refused to have enforced the 'anti-trust law.' "Sixth—That he has sent United States troops into the state of Illinois without au thority of law, and in violation of the con stitution. "Seventh—That he has corrupted politics through the interference of federal office holders. "Eighth—That he has used the appointing power to influence legislation detrimental to the welfare of the people; therefore, be it Resolved, by the house of representatives, That the committee on judiciary be directed to ascertain whether these charges are true, and if so to report to the house such action, by impeachment or otherwise, as shall be proper in the premises, and said committee shall have authority to send for persons and papers." When the clerk ceased reading, Mr. How ard, who had arisen to address the house, was suddenly taken off the floor by Mr. Dingley, the floor leader of the* majority, who raised the question of consideration against the resolution. The question was promptly put by the speaker, and by a practically unanimous vote the house declined to give Mr. Howard a hearing. Mr. Sherman (Rep., N. V.), chairman of the committee on Indian affairs, presented the conference report on the Indian appropriation bill. The report agreed to all the items save those relating to the continuation of the Dawes' commission, the sectarian school ques tion and the old settlers' resolution. The re port was adopted. Mr. Sherman then moved that the house concur in the senate amend ment relating to sectarian schools. By both the house and tho seriate amendments, Mr. Sherman explained, the policy of doing away with sectarian schools was enunciated. The difference between the two provisions was that the house paragraph out off appropriations for sectarian schools Immediately, while the senate amendment proposed to allow provision for sectarian schools to continue for two years. The motion, was lost—B4 to 99. Mr. Hainer (Rep., Neb.) moved that the house conferees insist on tho house provision and the motion was carried on a rising vote— 115 to £5. On Mr. Fitzgerald's demand, a record vote was taken, resulting 154 to 22, Those who voted in the negative werei Republicans, Aldrich. Eddy, Lewis, Loud, Sherinan, Poole, Parker, O'DelJ, Noonan, Stewart, 10; Democrats, Allen, Bartlett, Clark, Cooper, Harrison, Fitzgerald, Denny. Kleburg, Lestor, McClelian, Sulzer, 11, and Baker, Populist. H -^—^- ; ■■■ [~ -UP. TO THE PRESIDENT. ~?\ River and Harbor Bill Awaits His Action. j. WASHINGTON, May M.-Tbe river and hajf\ bor bill, as finally passed by both houses,was taken to the White house at a late hour this afternoon. As soon as the house had agreed to the conference report the committee on enrolled bills went to work to see that the bill agreed in all respects with the recom mendations of the conference committee. Ow ing to the numerous amendments this was no easy task, but as a result of continuous work, the committee finished a few minutes after 5 o'clock The enrolled bill was then taken to Speaker Reed, who signed it and im mediately announced the fact to the house. Then the clerk having the matter In charge hurried over to the senate, where the bill received the signature of Vice President Ste venson. This action of the vice president having been announced to the senate, the bill was taken back to the enrolled bills com mittee, and afterwards to the White house. The president has ten days, beginning Mon day (Sundays excluded) in which to act on the bill. m SILVERITES DISSATISFIED. Reiterated That South Dakota Will Have a Contesting Delegation. YANKTON, S.

L'Anse Permanently Wiped Out, MARQUETTE, Mich., May 23.—There Is Ut ile probability that the village of L'Anse will recover from the effects of the lire which two weeks ago wiped out half the town.

Smith's large saw mill and general store was the main enterprise and dependence of the village, and his decision not to rebuild leaves little for the future of L'Anse. Moorhead Displeased.
