Wilcox Is Trials of n Collector. ! something of a loko on tho United States. In tho convention at Philadelphia sat a delegation from Hawaii. When tho roll of states and tcrtltorica were called and tho clerk with extra sonorous effort enunciated "Hah-wah-eo" there was lnvsibly an outburst of ap plause In tho procession of ban ners which celebrated tho Repub lican nomination for President. none -was quite, bo conspicuous as tho ucautllul conception in Vjtuo silk which was born o proudly by tho delegation from tho Hawaiian Islands. Tho convention wbnt wild I Tho man who makes a business of collecting bad debts is called upon to do a great many extraordi nary things, but thero is a limit to what even ho will attempt, and that limit was reached a duy or so ago In a certain Chicago ofilco. Tho collector gave his thoughtful consideration to tho proposition made to him and then announced that, ho would resign beioro ho 'would accept It. "I havo been. trying to collect thhrblll'for a year," ho soldi but I never could find tho party In. Now I nm Informed bypno who ' over tho ready assimilation of theso claims to know Just whero I can adopted Americans of tho Pacific, see him, but there is altogether too I In tho convention of tho democrats much uncertainty about it." Oh, well, It's worth taking a chnnco urgod tho head of the col lection bureau, "No, Itlsn't," asserted tho young man. at Kansas City sat another delcga. tion of Hawallans, entirely at homo as to American politics, although tho head of tho delegation was commonly referred to In an un democratic way as'Prlnco' David. "If you don't find him In you . In tho committee on resolutions can como back nnd try ngaln." Princo David gavo tho casting voto "If I had any assurance of that . which committed tho dcmocratlo I might consent to make tho trip," ! party torcitcration of 10 to 1.

Tho Dutch then put n guard over tho field and established an outpost In a straw stack about 100 yards away. Tho Yanks were furious and tho non-com. had difficulty In preventing a fight, but after dark two Yanks took somo Jananccso boer and culled on tho outpont, and during tho toasting of 'dor kaiser' which followed, tho shack got aflro, becoming a mnss of flames In two minutes. A lot of amunltlon ex ploded and tho sentries rushed in to save their blankets, and when they returned they found a strong guard of Yankq around tho potato patch and were hardly allowed to look nt tho placo ng.iln. Tho only consolation for tho German officer was to say that tho "Yankees were swine." This evening I visited tho camp of French artillery. Whilo looking nt their trauspor THE J1AN OB HIS WORD.
