The Colorado smelters arn said to be in session in Denver, for the pur pose of organizing a co-operative organization- not favorable to compe tition in the business cf milling and mucking ores.

One of the most conspi cuous veterans, in relatii g his expe rience, said. "We were snubbed;. the linifianians were badly snubbed, sir! Chicago bo d (Ji! Indiana doesn't want any more-, Chicago hospitali ty!" It miifrt nave been something like the rcecutionif tie C lo a !o tol' s at Cheynme. Congressman Wright's hard limes committee, which was appointed by the List congress to unenrlli 'hard times, has had a verv hard time of it. They have been forced to ride from Maine to-Florida and from the Mian- tic to. the Facille, yet they have fijumLm)thiugre:iL')ibliu1fLard.tJuuis. They have fearched all over this broad and beautiful land of ours; have sear ched every avai able spot and have even defended into what they sup posed was the depth of poverty ami yet they did not liml the coveted jew cll for which they were sent out to seek. Failing in all its efforts, this id iotically appointed committee return ed east and sought Wendell Phillip r who was once a republican, or some thing' to that effect, but who is now tv Iicast lien Ku tier ''What is it,." and at last accounts were pumping him dry as if wilha stomach pump. Such con centrated foolishness as the appoint ment of tlil& committee is seldom, if .ever, equaled. When hard times real ly comes, every body birows it, and if it does not come no congressional committee can find it. The annual report of the commis sioncr of internal revenue for the last year shows that tfivr totel fMlcethvus amounted to $113,918,456' an iircrease c-f $2,8'J0.741 over the previous year. The principal articles which pay tax are distilled and lermcntcd liquors, tobacco :iud cigars. O Id o wiwit IWinois pay over k.s!f of tliC total: Indiana and Kentucky pay one fifth while Missouri and New York together pay one tenth, ft would take four hundred such states as Florida to pay tire w hole amor.nt of the tax eví if they do con sume a good quantity of the articles. Sonic writer complains that while monuments have been erected to the confederate dead, the monument of George Washington, who was first, in various IhingH-, is allowed to1 languish. The rea.-oni for the-. d'HVrenco is too plain. If about two-thirds of all the folks in this great and glorious etc., will set in and abuse George a while, the other third will whoop- that 500 feet monument up to its full height and add an extra hundred or two, just to show wlit they cando. Why, ev en Major Andre, who had not one ad mirer in all America, lias a monument on the spot where he was not buried. If you want to kill aman oil' get every bodv to bragon him. How often, after death, is whiskey on the stomach charged to the account of water on the brain. It would notrb considered proper, at this time, to speak of the death which gave rise t the thought; hu hack a few vears in I the lusfu'v of the countrv stands a name, which might be used as a beacon light, to warn politicians of the dan ger of drinking, at all.

Some scientific mine was given to amount, for h's deat'.i; vet it here can be but littlir doubt that his death was the result of the terrible po litical battle in which he engaged, dur ing the last few years of his life, and to carry on which it was necessary t) resort continuously to stimulants. lie died-of over work, excitement and liq uor, and others, almost as famous,, have of late years traveled the same road and to the same goal. The womans right theory is making headway.. At a recent pes-ion of tiie Kchool board of New York city fdx members out of'twcniy voted to duct a woman assistant superintendent of schools. The- motion was defeated but ihe six votes shows the growth of a sentiment.

The fact that a majority of the teachers and ludof the puj i!s are feinnlc9 was a strong argument in favor of the appointment of a female.

'Ihe claims of woman, however, uiu-d never be has- ed upon the consideration of sex, but upon proficiency, worth and general fitness for the place sought to be fi led by her. Tritnüferrutk Sam Monroe, the express messenger, who was held up by the train robbers, a few weeks ago, has been transferred to the branch from Newton t Wield ta, where big men don't come into the express car and hold big revolvers un der a messenger's nose.

That the Chinese should bring abcit a revolution in nsiyal arcidtccttwe and armament is tviwitlior su-rorise wh'ch Ihc CA'ient has provided' for the Euro pean world. It seems that the conti nued prospect of war between Japan and China led the Japanese Govern ment to pin-chase in Fiudand a num ber of very heavily armored' vessels for offensivo operation? along the coast of China. Thereupon, the Ohin cse G-ovcnmi.ont, adopting a plati'di!' vised by líendell, an Englishman; be gan at once the construction in Fn glish shipyards of a licet of small light-draft r.uarmorcd gun-boats, each to carny. wi euormtus So-ton-ll-inrdi muzzle-loading gun.
