The first speaker was Mr. KosiiwutQf , who said It Is natural that a nation 'hat liai spent 450 years In Egyptian bondage xhouh flnd Itself In the ranks of a party whopc history was that of having brought free dom universally to American soil. In addl lion to that , the Jews favor the republican party because It stands today for good gov eminent. Just as much as1 when this nation went through the ordeal ot 1S63. The Jews rccogulze this fact. % Prof. Zolikowltch next spoke , addrcsslui the Russians In their native language. He said that this country has over 22,000,000 waga workers , and they have to taku a their earnings such , money as Is legal ten dcr. They cannot take gold contracts , nm It Is to their Interest that they be paid In only the best money. If half the populatioi is paid in money of less purchasing power misery Is sure to come. They tell us tha the wage workers of Japan , Mexico , etc. are happy on the wages they get. This maj be so , but they arc living on a far lowe scale of civilization than In America. I Is the yellow man , and not the yellow metal , he said , that threatens to disturb modern civilization.

This is the first meeting held In Colorado since the discovery of Cripple Creek , and the consequent revival of the gold mining Industry In this state. The In stitute was organized at Wllkwbarre , Pa. . In 1S72 , and since that time has had an average of three meetings In each year , al ways at some prominent mining center , or where teohnlcnl operations Incidental to mining are conducted. This Is the third In this city , the first being In 18S2 and the second In 1889. It Is anticipated that the attendance will be not less than 200. The total membership of the Institute Is 2,700 and It Includes members from every state In the union In which mining opeurtlons of any kind are conducted.

Aug. 2S.-To tbp Editor of the Register : Senator Tlllman In com- mentinsr on tntr popular rrunlltlos of Brynn ns a candidate paid : "He Is stronger than some other candidate ! ! would be. because lie novur voted ngultiHt pensions. Other friends of Bryan have gone so far as to sny that bis record In congress commended him to the unlnn veterans of the country. It might bo well to Inquire what till record really Is In older to arrive nt a Just de cision upon thin very Important point. 1 Bay Important , because 1 regard It as very essential to the cx-unlon soldiers Unit the man who appeals to them for their votes lo help him Into the hiih olttco of president shou'rt have tuld ami do.io somcthltit ; worthy of their support. Mr. Bryan rrprisented n district In Ne braska In tin ) I'lrty-.u-coiid and Fifty-third congrcssoH which contained many union veterans ami their widows nnd orphans. It Is but leasoimblo to conclude that dur ing four years In congress , representing such a constituency nt n time when I ho old Holdlern nnd thutr widows were. In creat need ofjeglslatlvo help , that ho would nave iJci-n prompted by existing conditions to be nctlvo and Industrious ns a legislator In their behalf. Not only the largo soldier clement In his district and state would suggest that ho mnko a creditable record by careful and thorough nttentlon to iho Interests of his constltutcnts , hut the very fact of a bitter ami peislstont opposition to this class of his constituents , which showed Itself constantly during the time lie occupied a seat In congress , would sug gest that ho had causa for pxurtlm ; himself only tin- more In order to do justice to thu demands of Ills own people. Hut what did ho actually do with all this strong Incentive behind him ? He Intro duced ton private pension bills and suc ceeded In onaollnjj Just ono of them Into law. He got a favorable report on onu other bill , and failed to get even reports , favor able or otherwise , on the others. He In troduced four private bills to remove the o.harRu of desertion against that many sol diers , and utterly failed to puss a single ono or the bills. Ho succeeded In getting a report on one of them and when It was called up It was promptly killed. Ho In troduced two other bills , referring to the same subject , nfTectlng the status of cer tain widows. Both failed In committee. This Is the extent of his attempt to benefit the soldiers and widows of soldiers during his congressional career. To show the character of hi" Interest In this sort of legislation I need only re fer to the only case In whlOi hn showed any Interest either at the Friday night sessions , devoted exclusively to pen * I on work , or on the tloor of the hoiife. The case I refer to Is bill H. R I.W2 ! , which was reached at the night session ot May I , 1S04. The whole proceeding may be found In the CongreFdunnl Record , vol. 2 . IIP. 4.UO. G.7JG. 7.74S. Mr. Bryan said : "Mr. Chairman : I call up for present con sideration the hill to restore to the pen sion roll Sarah Beck , widow. " Mr. Jones ( domopop of Va. ) . "Mr. Chairman , It seems to me that this bill ought not to pusj. and further that no bill of this character ought to pass. " Mr. Bryan , who had the tloor and was entitled to an hour , yielded a part of his tlmo to Mr. Mortln of Indiana , chairman ot the' committee on Invalid pensions , and requested that gentleman to make n full statement of the cape , which he proceeded to do. Then Mr. liryan yielded time to Representative Livingston of Georgia. Tal- be.rt of South Carolina and Jones oC Vir ginia , all of whom bitterly opposed the bill and violently attacked pension legisla tion Knncnilly. In this way the time of the evening was wasted , and the whole pro. oeedlmis were made such a farce of that Mr. Van Voorhls of New York , who was thoroughly disgusted with the captious op position to the bill and Mr. Bryan's fiddle- faddling method , arose rind wild : "Mr. Chairman , this Is a meritorious case. This woman ought to Juiv a pension , but It strikes me that the fi lends of pension bills ought not to talk them to dmith. ( Laugh ter. ) It thu gentleman from Nebraska ( Mr. Brynn ) had deliberately gone to work to prevent any action here this evening he could not have done It better than by taking on hnur In presenting one csiso. \ \ o hnvij only about two hours for the whole evening , session , and this case will take more than an hour of the two. I think that one statement of the facts ot the ca ; < e Is enough , but this case has bad a detailed statement ot It made over : > 'nil over again , both bv gentlemen who are In favor o It and by gentlemen who are against It. I hope that when the next bill come.s IID Its rrlend.-f will have good sense to stiito the case and then let us have a vote. " ( Conjr. Record , Arol. 2fi part " > , p. M3I. ) Mr. Bryan sat still under this reproof , but subsequently said : "I have yielded nearly one-half of mv time to those op posing this bill , r will now yield live min utes to the gentleman from Virginia ( Mr. Jones ) If that will bo enoush for him. " ilr. Jcnes then proceeded to make a bitter at tack I'pon the bill and the whole subject of pension legislation. In the midst ot his bplteful Immnpue Mr. Bryan said : "I tak t. If the gentleman will permit me , that he does not desire to consume the tlmo simply to prevent the passage of the bill May I sny that he will confine his argu ment to tills case , and not to those which are not before the committee. " Mr. Jones I will try to oblige my friend from Nebraska. There is nobody In this house I would sooner oblige Mr. Bryan Thank , you. Mr. Jones Nobody whose claim I wonl sooner see puss than his , and I wl'l sij to mv frk'iul that I came hot1 * not at ai for the purjose of opposing bis purtlmila claim , but simply to prevent the establish ment ot any more Indefensible precedents I regret thnt he Is Interested In n clain of this character. Thus ho continued ti talk , and to consume time until the wholi pyenlmr was spent without a single pen slon bill having been pusrcil. .Mr. Brynn , Instead of using his eloquence In defense of the bill he had Introdncei to place on the pension roll a so'dlerV ' widow , who had comml'ted her case Inti his hands for proper and careful attention contented himself with simply s.iyln ? Let us make our objection against mei and not iiiriilnst women , particularly In n meritorious case like this. " Here Is a spectacle for the old soldiers and their widows to look upon. An oi ! woman , 71 years ot ase. who had cmlurci all the hardships Incident to helnit left alone to struggle and cire for herself am children while her husband was at the front flghtlnt ! for hi * country , and who died from disease Incurred In the line of duty a few yearn after the war , is titioning congress to aid her In her tremo n'd apn nnd to .succor her In hoi destitution.

But ho was silent , an he was Hlli'iit throughout his cntlro career us a coiiKiVMsmnn , when ever the rluhlH of the union soldier were attacked ami trampled under foot.

Sept. 20. The supreme court has ordered a now trial for Alonzo J. Whitman , who was convicted of fernery and sentenced lo nine years Imprison * ment. Whitman was formerly n very wealthy man and stood high socially and politically In Minnesota and Michigan. Up Inherited a largo fortune and clanged In business at Dututh , Minn. Ho was elected mayor of that town and also served n term as state senator In the Minnesota legis lature. Whitman met with business re verses and came west to San Fran cisco about two years ago. While hero ho posed as n man of wealth and was re ceived Into Rood society. Finally ho cashed at the Ilnnk of California a check drawn by Arthur IHxon for JJOO. The bank pco- plti later declared that the check wan a forgery nud that lllxon was a myth , Whit man was arrested in New York and was brought hero for trial. Ho declared that the check was genuine and had been presented by him In good faith. Ilo could not llnd his friend. lllxon , however , and h was convicted of forgery and sentenced to Imprisonment , llefore receiving his sentence Whitman made a most eloquent amtv touching statement In rcurt , maintain ing his Innocence. He appealed to the supreme court for a new trial and , pending the decision of th.il body , has been confined In the county Jail hero. The supreme premo court decides that the lower court erred in admitting evidence foreign to the matter at issue and a now trial Is granted- Whitman says ho will now bo able to rirovo his Innocence. Hu has found lllxon and procured nmdavlts from him which state the check was a genuine ono and ac cepted by Whitman In good faith. Whitman , alleges that there has been a conspiracy to send him to prison on a trumped-up charge. AIIOI'T ' TUW.V. "Talking about coffee. " said E. P. Johnson , of n wholesale coffee firm , "I have this to say : Coffee , as people drink It is made of the coffee berry. Almost all of the coffea Irunk Is made , of the berry , and very few | ) eople know that it Is quite as possible to make the most excellent of colfce from the leaf. The ilavor Is greatly like a mixture of tea and coffeo. Many Americans ara ; olng to Mexico and Central America with : he promise of large grants of land If they will only plant a certain number of coffea trees. The Mexican coffee Is sometimes of a quality very superior to the article cotn- nouly sold in our markets ; but generally it Is not nearly so good as Itlo and Santos. Jut if you want the finest coltco. It must 10 made of a mixture one-third Java and two-thirds Mocha. If you want the flavor t should be just steeped. If you want the laver and the strength steep it over a lamp all night , but never boil It. "Tho great trouble I flnd In traveling li hat of getting a good cup of coffee , and ono gets in a short tlmo to think , almost lothlng is Hold hero but Hlo and Santos at 1C cunts a pound. " A bit of Illinois history , connected with he rebellion , has almost been forgotten , and t is an Incident which Is curious. In that t gives probably thu on\f \ Instance In which a legislature has been prorogued by the ; overnor after the order ot tUu Engllslf'J'ar- lamcnt. It was at the time of the great peace congress , and the republicans of the senate were anxious to attend. The demo cratic house was equally as anxious to keep them away. Any motion to 'adjourn would bo voted down by the house and the senators were In despair. At length , one ot the mem bers , more learned In thu constitution ot the state than it scums the others were , showed the way out of the dlfllculty. Unlike probably any other state In the union , Il linois had among Its laws one to tlio effect that If the house and scnato could not agrco upon a date for adjournment , the governor had the power to dissolve the legislature. On the day the senators wished to leave for the pence congress they passed a resolution for adjournment and sent it to the houso. It was tabled. Immediately after the vote had been taken the private secretary en tered and announced that he had a com munication from the governor. He was re ceived with respect and escorted to the speaker's desk. Opening a paper ho read a number of "whereas1 " to the effect that the legislature not being able to scttlo upon a date for adjournment , and whereas , thq laws of the state In such cnso loft the mat ter In the bauds of the governor , "Therefore , I , Ulchard Yatcs , governor , do 'Icclare the legislature of the state ot Il linois adjourned. " and adjourned It was. The house was thunderstruck , so to speak , but no objection was made. The members acknowledged themselves beaten , and the senators attended the congress.
