Stirer Arenue, ' DeiBlDf , New Mexloo. JOHK 1L WEIGHT BOLTS. To the Editor of the Ban Pranciaoo Kxamlner. Sir: On a recent occasion I Bald: "When we reflect that in the domain of diplomacy the x'tniile writing of a letter by on American president to an American congress resulted in the Im mediate surrender of a cherished and vaunted policy by the proudest and most aggressive nation on earth, it Is no loiiifer dlftlcult to believe that In the world of finance the power of this nation Is equally understood and reared. The United States and not England should be and. will be the world's arbiter In finance and la busi ness as well as In war." Until the late republican conven tion I believed this proud consumma tion would be wrought by the republi can party through the establishment of Independent bimetallism as- the cornerstone of our financial policy. Hut that belief has been shattered by the unexpected declaration of the party la convention assembled, for the bject surreuderof our financial Inde pendence a declaration which has wakened In the minds of thoughtful men the question wneincr nnanciai Independence is not quite as import- ut as political independence, and whether the one can certainly be maintained without the other. I can not follow the party In this step and I much mistake my countrymen if more than a small minority will be found to pprove such a course. I shall vote for Mr. Bryan. I be lieve the tangles caused by the action of the populist convention at St. Louis will be untangled in time and that Mr. Bryan will be overwhelmingly elected. The movement, in my opinion, Is best described by the name of "new democracy." I think it means that the people generally have determined to reassert and exercise in their own way the power which of late years has been wielded by the "bosses" alone, and I expect to see a "landslide" in the direction of Bryan. In ancient times it used to be said, "make way for the representatives of the people." In these later days obstructors may well take heed when, as now, arises the more significant cry, "make way for the people." As to Mr. Bryan himself, I have the highest opinion of his abilities. Ills work at Chicago was not an accident, lie has done similar thing before, notably at the trans-Mississippi con gress in St. Louis, in 1894. And it was recently said by one who knows him well, that If it were possible to gather together in one great hall the 12,000,- 000 of voters of the United States, so they could all hear Mr. Bryan through a twenty-minutes address, the election would be over. I may be over enthu siastic about Mr. Bryan, but I believe be Is destined to be known in history as one of the greatest men, if not the greatest man, of this age. in time or peace probably no man can reach such a height as that which Mr,. Lincoln attained, but Mr. Bryan will get as far Into the hearts of the people as anv man can get, excepting in times when public events of a more dramat 1c character stirs the souls of men to their utmost depths. Whittler spoke of Greelv as "our later Franklin ". In the same way people are already talk in of Mr. Bryan as "our later Lin coln"; but being a democrat perhaps he will be more fitly canonized among political saints by bracketing his name with the names of Jefferson and Jackson. Grover Cleveland aspired to that place, the place which Bryan will win in the estimation of impar tial history. As to the crisis Itself, Mr. Teller has described it as I understand it, in his speech on the occasion of his with drawal from the St. Louis convention, and in bis more recent declaration of principle. And I believe that if through any acoident this opportunity shall be lost to the people, a satisfac tory degree of prosperity will not be gained for a generation to come. On the other hand, I believe that the free coinage of silver will result in stability of values, a gradual rise in prices, a more general distribution of wealth, the complete development of our Ro:ky Mountain empire, the perma nent transfer of the political balance of power to the west, and a develop ment et our manufactures, and In gen eral of all our Industrial resources much greater than would be accom éui te Win. The peopla recognize and appreciate real merit. This is why Hood's sarta parilla has tbe largest sale io the world, Merit In medicine meaos tbe power to cure. Hoods sarsaparllla cures abso lutely, permanently cures. It is tbe one true blood purifier. Its superior merit is an established fact, and merit wins. Hood's Pills are easy to take, easy plished by the enaetmént of the strong est protection law the people would permit to stand on tho statute books. I think .he tei dency to centraliza tion, the develop . iient of which began with, the necessities of 1861, has reached Its culmination in the acts of Grover Cleveland, a president nomi nally democratic. At first thought this is one of the-mostsiniruliir contra dictions In American politics, for home rule is now, as it always has been the very foundation stone of Democ racy. But Cleveland Is not a .democrat, though he so calls himself, and he is not a republican, for no republican president ever dared or desired to ex ercise the unconstitutional powers which have lately become as familiar as household words. Certainly if the time baa come when a president can force his own Individual views upon an unwilling congress, and can dic tate to our courts bow they shall de termine the law, and can nullify a statute because it did not meet with his approval, and can unnecessarily Increase tbe bonded debt of the na tion at his pleasure, and, worst of all, can haul down the American ting, and all unrebuked by any power superior tj his own, we are Indeed fallen upen grievous times, and a condition which to my mind very nearly resembles not a mere monarchy, but Imperialism. But it is still true under our flag that the people are greater than any man, however they may have honored him, and it is largely because the Chicago convention administered so sharp a rebuke to the president guilty of tho acts that I have enumerated, that I consider it the greatest representa tive body that has assembled iu this nation within my recollection. Whether I shall ever again vote the republican ticket will depend on fu ture events. Should McICiulr.y and tbe gold programme succeed, I be lieve it will take us the remainder of my life at least to undo the evil that will result, and so, if McKinley be elected, I shall probably never agaiu vote tbe republican ticket. But tbe people will succeed in their present purpose, and as the republican party has never been slow to learn, I have no doubt that four years hence will see the chartened party cdme forth under the banner of a new republican ism, as comprehensive and significant in its promise as Is now this new dc mocracy. Johh M. Wkight. It Is the same old story and yet con stantly recurring that Simmons liver regulator Is the best family medicine. "We have used it in our family for eight years and And It the best medi cine we'ever used. We think there is no such medicine as Simmons liver regulator." Mrs. M. E. S. Adington, Fraklin, N.C.

Electric bitters is a medicine suited for any season, but perhaps more gen erally needed when the languid ex hausted feeling prevails, when the liver is torpid and sluggish and the heed of a tonic and alterative is felt.

South African lions aro, beyond ques tion, the 'boldest of all produtory ani mals, and those of Maahoualaud are per haps tho boldistt of all. During tbe night, tbeir natural hunting time, thoy attack draft animals, or eveu men, within a few yards of tho campfirea, and are a constant and serious danger to travelers iu districts remote from the main tracks of traders. From tbe Zam bezi, through Sluthonnlaud, and north to tho Limpopo a chorus of complaint rises in tho pages of recent travelers whose cuttle or followers have suffered from their ut lack. Mr. Selous has re corded tho pursuit of the post from Salis bury by a lion, and the loss of tho mail bags, which the nuimnl tore from tlie buck of tho pack horse. Mr. Milluis. who crossed tho tfuanetsi river with a team of eight donkeys to draw his Wug ou tho osou being left behind ou ac count of tho proximity of the "fly" country lost three in one night by a lion attnek, carried out with the utmost con tempt for human beings, whether white or biuck. He was awakened by the lion's roar, and almost immediately saw one of the tothered donkeys knocked over. It was not five yards from tho Uro, but in tbe darkness and duzzloof the fire be could not seo tho attacker. "We know iustiuctivoly that a liou had killed the donkey, and was standing over bim not five yards from where we were, but it was hopeless to fire unless we saw some thing, or at least oonld make certain of his whereabouts. " This odd scene continued for some moments, the. actors being four or five black ru on, two white men, a pony, sev en llvo donkeys and a dead one, and tho lion standing over the latter, with a firo partly lighting up tho figures, until a couple more donkeys broke loose. They ruBhed into a mealie field, andthero tho party heard the lion chasing first one donkey and then another, as excited and as little afraid as a dog chasing rabbits in a field of barley. "At every bound the lion emitted a subdued 'boo-uff,' as bis fore legs struck tbe ground, but tbe two did not go far. There wero presently a loud scuffle, a crook and the sound of a heavy body falling; thou all was still. " Tho lion chased the third donkey ronnd the camp, killed and ate it, and was next day shot by an ingenious trap, made by tying a rifle to posts, and fas tening a string to tho trigger, which the liou struck whou revisiting its kilL The unsportsmanlike method of com passing its doatb is excused by Captain Milluis on the ground of necessity. This lion was 10 foet long from the tip of tho nose to the tip of the tail, was in perfect health and immensely formida ble. London Spectator. A CaptlTa Dalloon. The principal danger in oaptive work is tho always present possibility of the wiro rope parting, not because of the obvious result that the balloon, being get froo, would at once make off at speed, but for reasons of a very simple technical nature, albeit none the more pleasant by reason of tbeii simplicity. It must be understood that when a captive balloon has boon sent up the required height, the neck of the balloon has to be tied up so as to prevent the wind from exerting a pressure on tbe envelope and forcing out the gas, which would result in the balloon very shortly losing its lifting power and descending. In freo runs the neck must always be wido opon, for othorwiso any sudden expansion of gas might burst the balloon. Henoo if a oaptive breaks away it is bound to make an unduly rapid ascent, since it is sua douly roloased from tbe restraint as well as the weight of the wire rope. Of course in such an emergency tbe gas would at once oommenoe to expand furiously, and unless the neck of the balloon were instantly opeued and kept open the envelope would inevitably burst. In the shocking aooident at the Crystal palaoe iu 1803, when poor Dale and bis comrades lost tbeir lives, the balloon was started with too much lift and commenced to rise with undue ra pidity. Dale, the aeronaut, realising tbe dauHor. opened tbe neck and in bis anx iety to see that it was oloar looked into it. and it is Supposed tnat nis netrt ohecked the outruan of heated gas, with the result that ' tbe envelope instantly burst, with terrible results.
